Food Thread: Store-Bought Or Homemade: What's The Dividing Line?

—CBD

fried-chicken.jpg

Sure I can make fried chicken. I have on many occasions, and it's pretty good. But the question is: "Should I?" And the answer is: "Nope!" There is local supermarket that makes solid chicken, and a take-out place just a few minutes farther away that makes fantastic stuff, so unless I just feel like cooking it, I burn some hydrocarbons and go pick it up.

But...don't you dare suggest I buy a container of hummus. How DARE you! Mine is better and cheaper than almost all of the commercial stuff, and the one place around here that makes hummus worth a damn is in Brooklyn, and that is a very long way. It takes five minutes to make a quart of it, so in the time it takes to buy some overpriced and under-flavored mass-market hummus, I can have a great batch whipped up.

So...where is your dividing line? What foods can you make but choose not to, and what foods do you make even though there are reasonable commercial alternatives.

Jaguars, Ravens Take the Knee During National Anthem In Overseas London Game; Pittsburgh Steelers Refuse to Come Out of Locker Room for National Anthem

—Ace

This is in response, they say, to Trump's criticism of players taking the knee for the national anthem.

But their method of protest seems to always involve disrespecting the flag of the nation that's paying them millions of dollars to play a game and get blowjobs from groupies for a career.

Here's one exception:

Is This Something? A School Full Of Special Snowflakes Who Actually Aren't Snowflakes And Are Pushing Back?

—CBD

It's not much of a pushback, but any time a high school humor video starts out with a shot at Michelle Obama and her food Nazis it's worth noticing. And this is a school in a wealthy liberal bastion in the New York City metropolitan area!

This came to my attention barely a month after I had a long conversation with a young relation who, when asked whether he believed that democracy was preferable to all other forms of government, was completely ambivalent. Yes, I was gobsmacked. He is an earnest, intelligent young man who has been completed subsumed into the progressive ideal of the expert, sort of like Hillary! His particular God is AGW, and shouldn't we trust the experts to decide what is best? After all, they are "SCIENTISTSTM. Of course he counts himself among the ranks of those experts....And that fascinates me, because the ideal in his world is the benevolent dictator and his minions (experts). It simply never occurred to him that he could be on the wrong end of the coercion that is axiomatically inherent in an authoritarian government.

Could this video, as gently critical as it is, be reflective of at least some of the youth now emerging into the real world? When I was young I and my friends chafed at the restrictions placed upon us by society. What an odd world we live in today that the most vocal of our youth yearn for more restrictions: on speech, relationships, the flags we fly, the statues we have in our squares...

Sunday Morning Book Thread 09-24-2017

Sanborn Library, Dartmouth College.jpgSanborn House Library, Dartmouth College

Good morning to all you 'rons, 'ettes, lurkers, and lurkettes. Welcome once again to the stately, prestigious, internationally acclaimed and high-class Sunday Morning Book Thread, where men are men, all the 'ettes are gorgeous, safe spaces are underneath your house and are used as protection against actual dangers, like natural disasters, or Literally Hitler, and special snowflakes do not last. And unlike other AoSHQ comment threads, the Sunday Morning Book Thread is so hoity-toity, pants are required. Even if it's these pants, which look even sillier with those boots. (h/t to lurkette 'LaughingOutLoud!')


Pic Note

According to this, Sanborn House is

...home of the English department at Dartmouth College. It contains faculty offices, seminar rooms, and, most important to English majors, a library with Oxford editions of all the major and minor English and American authors, quiet alcoves for reading, a large fireplace for cheerful log fires on cold winter afternoons -- in the 1960s, there were lots of cold winter afternoons in Hanover, N.H. -- and tea for faculty and students every afternoon at 4:00.

Saturday Evening Movie Thread 09-23-2017 [Hosted By: TheJamesMadison]

—OregonMuse

Out of Order

Back when The Simpsons was good and something to look forward to, they produced that little segment in the third "Treehouse of Horror" episode. I love this bit. Homer telling a scary story completely out of order to the point of inefficacy. Revealing key information about main characters after their respective payoffs. It's such a perfect example of terrible story telling.

I bring it up because it's one of the things I think of first when I hear of a story being told non-linearly. And yet, I know it can be done wonderfully well.

Last week we talked about the three-act structure, but because it's the most common narrative structure for film doesn't mean that it's the only one or even the best. I don't care about which is "best", but I do care about stories well told in different ways. So, let's talk about one of my favorite examples of non-linear story-telling.

Is that cat a pointer?

According to Vermont Fish & Wildlife, August 3 was opening day of zucchini season. Anybody know how long the season lasts there? Guess it doesn't matter much if frost hits. From the Old Farmer's Almananc, average first and last frost dates across the country. You can look up local charts for more specific garden information. Today, we have content on garden bounty and on cutting flowers you can plant in the fall or spring - for fall/winter bloom in mild climates or spring bloom in cold-winter climates. Inspired by Illiniwek's wild-ish flower border. I think I can handle some of those flowers on a little smaller scale.

James Jupp, a scholar of critical white studies, articulated his commitment to the destruction of "Whitestream cherished knowledge" in an article published Tuesday for the "White Scholars Working Against Whiteness" issue of the journal Whiteness and Education.

Question: Was Herbert Marcuse white enough to be considered "white"? He served in the German army. Critical Theory seems to be cherished in whitestream academia now. Must Critical Theory be destroyed? Would that include Critical White Studies?

EMT 09/23/17 Just say No edition.

—krakatoa

A little Saturday morning salt:

Fuck you Arizona, and all the rest of you cancy-ass, incumbent protecting at all cost voters.

How's all that sneering at principled voting and beating that drum of getting the best candidate that can "win" paying off? Got-damn but wouldn't a President "I'll complete that danged fence" McCain have been just the conservative bulwark that would turn the tide?

There has always been one simple solution to the problem. You vote for the person who best represents your values. If there are no candidates who represent enough of the values you hold dear, you should never fear abstaining.

The Left will burn itself out and eat its own, win or lose. The Right simply has to demonstrate a better alternative to their anarchy, in or out of power.

This is the 2nd time in my life I have watched the Right gain the White House and the Senate and House, and utterly waste it if one were to place any credence in their campaign promises.

You cannot beat the darkness by pretending it doesn't exist. It only gains strength when people simply pull the blinds to hide its encroachment. When those people are no longer in charge of the strings, the blinds come back up and the shadows are still there, roused again, indignant at the temporary pause, and more hungry than ever.

If a candidate is so obviously contemptuous of your values as, say John McCain whose blank and pitiless gaze ought to be a dead got-damned giveaway, you don't support his or her poisonous contempt with your vote just to keep someone else out of office.

This is the primary reason why the ratchet in this country has and still continues to turn in one direction. Republicans far too often see winning the election as a the job. So, we see professional campaigners whose singular strategy is to demonstrate "electability", and what few principles they do espouse are simply different words they tell to different people to get a vote.

Every time they come back with their hands outstretched and the threat that "this time it's the end of the world if you don't say yes," and "We promise to keep our promises and this time we we mean it, if you Just. Say. Yes.".

What has that gotten us?

How many of you really think continuing to do the same thing is going to achieve a different end than that which comes slouching towards us down that comfortable and familiar path?

Saying "NO" will set you free.


and Yes, I am angry and bitter so, Yeats.

Open Thread (with Lots of Content) & GAINZZZ Thread

—Ace

I figure the thing that's best here is the Making of Red Dawn (the original) featurette, also embedded below, but linked here in case you can't see it below.

Other stuff:

She seems nice.

In Australia, there's a controversy over the Australian Football League putting out a statement that it, as a corporation, supports same sex marriage. The question is, as it is here: Who the hell are these people to tell ticket-buying fans what they ought to think about a political issue?

Shock: CNN is barely covering the Menendez trial on the actual channel (though there is some scattered coverage on its doesn't-even-matter website), and the networks have almost entirely suppressed the story.

Why aren't the media and other leftist propaganda organs actually covering Valerie Plame's antisemitism? They covered the shit out of, say, Steve Bannon's alleged antisemitism, but for some reason have decided that the proven and longstanding antisemitism of a former CIA officer making decisions about Middle East policy, and influencing US opinion, just aren't worth much exploration, for some reason.

Here's the second-most obvious answer, apart from simple tribal allegiance and partisan bias: Because antisemitism has been thoroughly mainstreamed on the political left, far more that it has been on the right.

Go figure: Leftists decree that having a child is the worst possible decision you could make, both for yourself and The Planet.

Amusingly, here's the related story this bullshit site suggests you might also be interested in:

More: Why Greece needs to start having babies again soon or face financial oblivion

But ignore that. For the Anti-Human Left, the Human Voluntary Self-Extinction Project outweighs all other concerns.

They really are Agent Smith -- they really do want an end to the human race.

I meant to link this earlier, but John Sexton has written it up for us: Leaked emails show the full madness at Evergreen State College, with lots of professors complaining they are being threatened, harassed, and stalked by "Social Justice" Warriors. All of whom were permitted to take over the campus, vigilante style, by the administration, with cops ordered to stand down.

And then crazed lunatics had a free hand to impose their own weird "justice" on the Filthy Normals.

Oh, and speaking of college madness, you might enjoy Hilary Clinton Absolver James Comey being disrupted at a (planned) college address for 16 minutes.

Oh, and Jimmy Kimmel, who cheerled John McCain in his latest betrayal and lies, of course got coached up on his Obamacare talking points by Chuck Schumer.

Obama's "Dear Colleague" Demand for No-Due-Process Rape Courts Rescinded

—Ace

Big news. Expected, but big.

"This interim guidance will help schools as they work to combat sexual misconduct and will treat all students fairly," DeVos said. "Schools must continue to confront these horrific crimes and behaviors head-on. There will be no more sweeping them under the rug. But the process also must be fair and impartial, giving everyone more confidence in its outcomes."

Here's a bit that I've only seen Duke Lacrosse Rape case debunker KC Johnson highlight --


If you can't read it, it says that the standards/procedure used in these Title IX courts must be the same for adjudging other offenses. So universities can't run sexual assault hearings with any less procedural safe guards than those employed in other contexts.

Related, in a way:


An illegal immigrant is accused of raping a six year old girl.

Now, answer this for me:

If it's okay to use hearings which lack due process, review of the evidence, provision of a lawyer, etc., to expel students from college on sexual assault colleges, why can we not similarly dispense with due process rights when seeking to eject accused-but-not-yet-convicted illegal aliens from the US?

If the former passes constitutional muster, then so does the second. (Federally subsidized schools must respect rights to the same extent as the government -- and if they don't have to respect rights, then, ipso facto, neither does the government.)

And if its required to drop evidentiary standards down to near-zero to protect alleged victims in college, why is not necessary to do the same to protect the population generally?

Why do we have to wait for a full court/full due process conviction to eject an accused alien illegally present in the US, when it is now the left's insistence that no such procedural safeguards are needed to throw a US citizen out of a college?

BTW: The below post is fun so it's officially Still A Thing, if you want.

Mel Brooks: "Stupid Political Correctness" Has Killed Comedy

—Ace

As many of you have pointed out, Blazing Saddles could not be made today.

Brooks agrees.

Asked if any of his films could get made today, Brooks replied, "No, no. I mean maybe Young Frankenstein and maybe a few but never Blazing Saddles because we have become stupidly politically correct, which is the death of comedy." He continued, "It's okay not to hurt feelings of various tribes and groups; however, it’s not good for comedy.


"Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks. Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering into the king's ear, always telling the truth, always telling the truth about human behavior.”

BTW, Brooks' humor was rarely "racist" or antisemitic itself. But he often featured characters making racist statements. These characters' beliefs were pretty much refuted by the movie itself; for example, the black sheriff in Blazing Saddles was much smarter and craftier than the "morons" who called him racial slurs.

But Social Justice Warriors ignore nuances like that -- is it even right to call that a "nuance"? it's the obvious main point of the movie -- and take the ineffably stupid position that any word or statement they don't like, even if the context of it is intended to undermine or refute that statement, is forbidden.

One recent example of this was the Social Justice Warrior outrage over the movie Passengers. Which I did end up watching -- it was okay. Not very good. Nice looking sets of a spaceship and some good scenes, but overall, slow in the beginning, and then rushed at the end.

The plot was this: Chris Pratt is in cryosleep on a colonly ship to another world. The trip is 120 years long -- the ship only (only!) travels at half the speed of light. But his cryopod malfunctions and he's woken up after only 30 years -- with 90 years to spend on a ship in which literally not another human being is awake.

Including the crew, which... well, this isn't very realistic, but the crew is all in cryosleep too, with the computer running everything for the whole journey, which makes you wonder: Why even bother sending along a crew? You'd think if you sent them along, you'd at least wake up a few of them every six months or so to make sure the ship hasn't been hit by a meteor and undergoing a catastrophic cascade failure. (Which is exactly what's happened.)

Anyway, after a year of being totally alone, and facing the prospect of living out the rest of his life alone, and after having (Spoiler alert) attempted suicide before chickening out last minute, he makes the selfish -- but desperate -- decision to wake up a fellow passenger, and the lie to her, telling her that her cryopod also suffered a random mechanical failure.

The Social Justice Warriors attacked the film for Pratt's selfish decision to trap a woman in his same predicament, just because he wanted companionship (including romantic/sexual companionship - he'd spent a lot of days watching her various video interviews, falling in love with her).

But here's the thing: The film knows that was a horrible, selfish decision. Chris Prat's character knows it was a horrible, selfish decision, and says so, and lives with the guilt of it every day.

The main dramatic conflict in the movie is all about his horrible, selfish decision, and what the hell this woman is going to do when she finds out he actually condemned her to live and die alone on a ship just because he was lonely.

The movie offers the same critique as the Social Justice Warriors -- this desperate man did a terrible and selfish thing to a woman to alleviate his own suffering.

Yet the Social Justice Warriors acted as if portraying bad decisions, and the consequences of those decisions (both to the woman he woke up, and himself) is the same as endorsing those decisions.

You can't really read that in the film. Yet they did anyway.

The did the same thing to the movie Knocked Up, criticizing the male character's immaturity and failure to "man up" and help the woman he impregnated -- ignoring the fact that the film itself has a critical stance toward's Seth Rogen's character, and the whole dramatic thrust of the film is about him giving up his selfish, manchild ways to become a real man, capable of supporting a wife (emotionally mostly -- she makes more money than him, but he at least now has an income) and raising a child.

Oh, and of course Ms. Magazine whined that Wonder Woman wasn't fat with a "real body." Despite the fact that Gal Gadot's body obviously is "real," and despite the fact that the character, according to the movie, trained to be a warrior -- you know, an athlete of death -- "ten times" harder than any other Amazon since age 8.

So.... yeah. I'm not seeing the likelihood of such a person carrying around an extra 80 or 100 pounds.

And:

When it was announced that Gadot would play Wonder Woman, audiences went wild body shaming her for not having large enough breasts....

Especially with the body positivity movement gaining steam, the film could have spotlighted female warriors with fat, thick and short body types. While people have said that warriors can’t be fat, some of our best paid male athletes are, particularly linebackers on the football field, and no one doubts their physical strength.

So it's "body shaming" to say she doesn't have enough fat mass in her breasts, but it's Social Justice Warrior dogma that she should have more fat mass in her belly and thighs.

Very nuanced take. (BTW, her breasts were fine.)

So yes, the Social Justice Warriors would freak out about a Blazing Saddles where characters use racial jibes and play stupid about the film's overall message. They stupidly outrage about things daily because it give them power -- and an income. Most of them are paid by media companies or political agitation groups to freak out whenever possible.

They get attention and money to play stupider than they really are -- and they're already plenty stupid for real.

John "Build the Dang Fence" McCain Liesplains His Obamacare Reform No-Vote: I Won't Support Any Law That Democrats Don't Support Too

—Ace

Not that surprising to see a Democrat defending the interests of the Democrat Party.

Strange that a vain, narcissistic man who claims to be The Only Straight-Shootin' Maverick Truth-Teller in DC would lie about his actual party loyalty, though.

It’s worth noting, by the way, that his rationale is rather bizarre. His key point -- one he reiterated in his tweet announcing the decision-- is this:
We should not be content to pass health care legislation on a party-line basis, as Democrats did when they rammed Obamacare through Congress in 2009. If we do so, our success could be as short-lived as theirs when the political winds shift, as they regularly do. The issue is too important, and too many lives are at risk, for us to leave the American people guessing from one election to the next whether and how they will acquire health insurance. A bill of this impact requires a bipartisan approach.

Fine, but if so, what was literally all of this about? It’s been clear since early this year, when Democrats rebuffed the original Cassidy-Collins bill, that no Democrat would support a repeal or deep reform of Obamacare. If McCain sincerely believes this, he should have been a firm no from the start, and shouldn't have teased everyone by flirting with support for the various bills the Senate considered.


In fairness to John McCain -- he lies an awful lot, running as a "conservative" every six years and then voting like a liberal Democrat for the next five, and GOP voters have permitted this fraud to go on for decades, so why should he stop now?

If voters vote for lies, fraud, and betrayal, why should they not have exactly that in McCain-ego-sized buckets?

At least he got the support of his actual constituents: The liberal media:


It's okay to screw over your millions of dupe, rube voters if you can get someone in the media to flatter your old, brokedown-but-ravenous vanity.

Shocker: Maine Socialist Susan Collins "Leaning Against" Obamacare Repeal
Another Shock: JOHN McCAIN, HERO OF CONSERVATISM, WILL VOTE TO SAVE OBAMACARE

—Ace

What we need to do is protect our most liberal senators by voting in solidarity with them, or cancelling votes so as not to embarrass them, so that the GOP is always defined by its most liberal elements.

It's worked like gangbusters so far.

BTW, I realize Rand Paul is against this bill for retaining many parts of Obamacare. I get that. But that's not why Susan Collins is against it. Remember, she was one of the last to announce she was opposing Obamacare in the first place -- probably only because she knew the Democrats had enough votes and didn't need hers. So she probably voted against it purely as a tactical move.

And Here It Is: John McCain comes in to White Knight for his fellow socialist traveler, and will protect her by voting against the bill too.


Article here. Once again he's claiming his only problem is with procedure.

"McCain Strikes Again," Drudge headlines.

Betrayed by John McCain voting with the Democrats. Never saw this coming.

The Morning Report 9/22/17

—J.J. Sefton

sessionsJJ.jpg

Good morning kids. The weekend is upon us and what a week it has been. As the cleanup and recovery gets underway in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, our top story this morning is of course President Trump both internationally and here at home. His presence at the UN was a cold pmp-slap of reality in the face of the thugs and tyrants around the world as well as here at home. Interesting how the reaction to PDT is that he is somehow dangerous and unhinged and yet it's Whoa, Fat! who has threatened to detonate an H-bomb over the Pacific. It was the last three presidents, especially the Democrats who have fostered this festering of potential armageddon and yet when a real leader steps up and says "no more" he's the crazy one. Meanwhile, he scored a major diplomatic coup by getting the ChiComs to hit the NorKs in the pocket book. The disconnect with reality of the Left never ceases to stun me.

At home, in Alabama, Roy Moore evidently took it to Luther Strange who ducked and dodged direct questions about ethics troubles. Everyone in DC is looking to this as a bellwether for the fight against the Deep State GOP establishment. Unfortunately, PDT is backing Strange while Moore is the anti-establishmentarian. Also of note was that this was a Lincoln-Douglas style debate with no moderators. Would love to see this implemented going forward in presidential debates.

The Graham-Cassidy bill is gaining momentum in the Senate but there are conflicting reports as to both its odds of passing and more crucially, what it does or does not do to stop further government intervention in health insurance and care. As a palate cleanser, Tucker Carlson beats up on Meathead about the Russia hacking/collusion fantasy.

Lastly, in the face of the revelations about Obama and his flunkies using the instrumentalities of government to attack, punish and sabotage their political enemies, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is evidently going to do, for lack of a better word, nothing. I have tried my best to defend Sessions here as he was the first GOP senator to endorse candidate Trump and in the beginning was an absolute hawk on immigration and the rule of law. And yet, out of the box, he shoved the President under the bus by recusing himself from the phony Russia hack/collusion investigation and opened the door for the kangaroo court that is aiming to take PDT out, or neuter the agenda come hell or high water. It is Sessions' duty to go after this criminality, which is unprecedented in American history and it is evident that he is neither capable nor willing to do so. And in abrogating that responsibility he is in effect aiding and abetting the breakdown of trust in our law enforcement and governmental agencies. This is a cancer on our nation and society and he is letting it consume us. For the good of the nation, Jeff Sessions must resign and make way for someone who will pick up the gauntlet and prosecute those who violated their sacred oaths to the nation an rule of law. Personally, I would love to see someone like J. Christian Adams as AG. But if Sessions refuses to go, President Trump must fire him. For his sake and the sake of the nation and the rule of a just and stable law.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

Per the video at the link, they wear the goggles to protect their eyes from dust, and the booties to protect their feet as they dig through rocks and broken glass.

In other news: Former Nation of Islam defender of Louis Farakhan's antisemitism Keith Ellison has the stones to make a Holocaust comparison with respect to border security.

In this, he follows Nancy Pelosi, who compared deporting illegals to interning Japanese citizens during WWII.

Oh yeah -- and speaking of, Nancy Pelosi praised illegal aliens for breaking the US law, saying "they did a great thing."


Obama gave a speech to the Gates Foundation. I don't know if this is one of those $400,000-per-speech gigs he likes to give to the wealthy. But I do know he said "I," "me," or "my" 96 times in a short speech.

James Clapper, who previously said there wasn't any wiretap on Trump to his knowledge, and that he would certainly expect to know it if there was one, now reverses himself on that "I would know" point and says he didn't know anything at all about the Manafort wiretap.

If you want to not know more about the Tube Bombers, read the New York Times. They'll hide potentially discomforting information from you, like the nationalities of the suspects, their status as innocent refugees fleeing war (check!), and connections to Islamic terrorism.

Revealed: Straight Black Men Are "The White People of Black People"

—Ace

"Intersectionality" bean-counts your Victim Oppression Factors. These include being of a minority race, being a woman (though women are... the majority), being gay, being disabled, being "trans," and even being fat.

There's a lot of Oppression One-Upsmanship going on. (Or: One-Upspyrsynshyp.)

White women are routinely castigated by the Intersectionalist Victim Oppression Gold-Medal holders for being Mostly Oppressive. After all, they only have one Victim Oppression chit to their credit. They need to shut up and let the true victims finally get the chance to whine about their victimization.

I agree with the first part, but not the second.

Even gay people are denigrated by Gold Medal holders for being "cis" as far as gender identification. Trans people often call them selfish for hoarding their Victim Oppression power and not using it to help trans people, who are the real heroes here.

As I noted last week, female lesbians are insulted for being "vagina fetishists" for refusing to have sex with "trans" women who are sexually attracted to women. And of course what I mean by that is men who want to hook up with lesbians, but who wear their hair long and put on make up and claim that they're girls. See, they're girls (with penises) attracted to other girls.

Girls who dig other girls. Like lesbians. Except, you know -- with penises. And even though they like girls, see, they're "gay," because they're actually girls themselves.

But with penises.

By the way, a lot of men want to have sex with lesbians. We call these odd creatures "straight men." Sometimes they betray their own depraved sexual impulses by accidentally posting Busty Lesbian Porn links on their blogs.

That's old news, though.

But this is a new one. Inevitable, yes. Predictable -- well, should have been.

But new.

Left-wing writers are taking the victim narrative to a new level this week, decrying "straight black men" as the "white people of black people."

In a column for The Root's 'Very Smart Brothas," writer Damon Young accused straight black men of having the "type of privilege created for and protected by whiteness." Black men, while victims of the white man's oppressiveness, are the oppressors of the nonheterosexual/male black person.

...


According to Young, straight black men are overrepresented in social justice circles and racism counters....

Sheryl Atkisson: Looks Like Obama Spied on Trump Just Like He Spied on Me

—Ace

A pattern of using pretexts to spy on problematic American citizens.

Many in the media are diving deeply into minutiae in order to discredit any notion that President Trump might have been onto something in March when he fired off a series of tweets claiming President Obama had "tapped" "wires" in Trump Tower just before the election.

According to media reports this week, the FBI did indeed "wiretap" the former head of Trump's campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. If Trump officials -- or Trump himself -- communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too.

But we’re missing the bigger story.

If these reports are accurate, it means U.S. intelligence agencies secretly surveilled at least a half dozen Trump associates. And those are just the ones we know about.

Besides Manafort, the officials include former Trump advisers Carter Page and Michael Flynn. Last week, we discovered multiple Trump "transition officials" were "incidentally" captured during government surveillance of a foreign official. We know this because former Obama adviser Susan Rice reportedly admitted "unmasking," or asking to know the identities of, the officials. Spying on U.S. citizens is considered so sensitive, their names are supposed to be hidden or "masked," even inside the government, to protect their privacy.

In May, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates acknowledged they, too, reviewed communications of political figures, secretly collected under President Obama.

Nobody wants our intel agencies to be used like the Stasi in East Germany; the secret police spying on its own citizens for political purposes. The prospect of our own NSA, CIA and FBI becoming politically weaponized has been shrouded by untruths, accusations and justifications.

You’ll recall DNI Clapper falsely assured Congress in 2013 that the NSA was not collecting "any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans."

Intel agencies secretly monitored conversations of members of Congress while the Obama administration negotiated the Iran nuclear deal.

In 2014, the CIA got caught spying on Senate Intelligence Committee staffers, though CIA Director John Brennan had explicitly denied that.

...

Journalists have been targeted, too. This internal email, exposed by WikiLeaks, should give everyone chills. It did me.

Dated Sept. 21, 2010, the “global intelligence” firm Stratfor wrote:

[John] Brennan [then an Obama Homeland Security adviser] is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists learning information from inside the beltway sources....

The government subsequently got caught monitoring journalists at Fox News, The Associated Press, and, as I allege in a federal lawsuit, my computers while I worked as an investigative correspondent at CBS News....

She then recounts her own fight against hacking, and her lawsuit against the government, with our government fighting against her. She says the keylogger software used to hack her is federal government proprietary software.

It recalls what Daniel Greenfield wrote at Townhall: Once you start spying illegally, you have to keep spying illegally, because now you have to keep yourself out of jail.

Meanwhile, Don Surber tries to figure out why the We Bugged Trump story was leaked to CNN -- was it planted by an anti-Mueller hand trying to get Mueller in trouble, or a pro-Mueller hand trying to help him?

He thinks it's the latter.

Ben Domenech has some questions of his own. Remember, the wiretap was removed when the evidence it produced was "not conclusive," then it was re-applied for.

5. When was the wiretap renewed? On whose orders was the request made, and what new justification was involved?

6. If the evidence contained within the conversations the government wiretapped were indeed "not conclusive" about acts of collusion, as two sources tell CNN, why was the wiretap renewed (presuming that was the case) after Manafort left the campaign? Was it investigating the same activity, or new ones?

7. This was a 2014-based investigation given Manafort’s activity on behalf of a Vladimir Putin-friendly political party in Ukraine at the time. Back in April the Podesta Group revised their FARA reporting on their involvement in that Ukraine election, when their activity was directed by Manafort. Was the Podesta Group or any of its officials included in any wiretaps in 2016?

...

10. Was any of the justification contained within the application for the wiretap’s renewal dependent on the Steele Memo, whose many claims cannot be substantiated or have been significantly debunked? We know according to prior CNN reporting it was used for approval from a FISA court regarding Carter Page.

...

12. Why did Attorney General Jeff Sessions say there was no basis for Trump’s tweet when it seems clear that in fact someone as senior as Manafort, working and operating within Trump Tower, was indeed wiretapped?

By the way, for those on the SubRight determined to defend CNN and their hero Jake Tapper at every turn, even Clapper is now confessing that sure, maybe Trump was intercepted -- incidentally, of course.


The SubRight defenders of the media and Obama's spy ring are cutting the baloney thinner and thinner to claim that Trump wasn't really surveilled.

Sources: Political Appointee Samantha Powers, Who, As Ambassador to the UN, Had No Obvious Intelligence-Analysis Role in Government, Made "Hundreds" of Unmasking Requests In the Closing Days of the Obama Administration, Averaging One Per Day

—Ace

It was all just a coincidence that Obama's top political appointees were unmasking US citizens caught in intercepts, and then Obama just happened to change the rules to allow such information to be shared easily throughout government in his last days as Prezzy.

Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'unmasking' at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 – and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News.

Two sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record, said the requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking, exceeded 260 last year. One source indicated this occurred in the final days of the Obama White House.

One might suspect that she was using pretexts to engage in political spying, but that would be crazy conspiracy talk. Better to assume, as our super-pro-government Establishment Republican twitter idiots do, that this was all perfectly ethical, and not bother harboring any suspicions or asking any questions.

Because, of course, as all True Conservatives know, the most important precept in True Conservatism is assuming that government is always benevolent and that man is not fallen, but rather as innocent as the angels.

Valerie Plame: You Know, American Jews Are Responsible For Most of American Wars

—Ace

You remember Valerie Plame, right? She suggested her husband for the job of debunking Bush's claims about Iraqi weapons research.

The media made her a hero when she was "outed" -- in the context of letting the world know how her husband had gotten this job -- even though she wasn't really "in" in the first place. She worked out of Langley -- actual covert spies avoid Langley, for obvious reasons.

Since then she had a movie made about her, glamorizing her and indeed beatifying her. She's also a big supporter and fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, and is on the board of Ploughsares, a key part of Ben Rhodes'/Obama's "echo chamber" to give Iran the nuclear bomb so that it can wipe Israel off the map:


So, that background established, here's what Valerie Plame decided to retweet today:


Now you might charitably think: "Well, maybe she was just retweeting it to alert people to this writer's anti-semitism."

But your charity would be misspent. Here she doubles down and calls the article "very provocative, but thoughtful." (Emphasis added.)'

And she adds: "Many Neocon hawks ARE Jewish." (Emphasis in original.)



Then she tells people to set aside their preconceptions and just read the article and think about it "clearly:"

Jimmy Kimmel Threatens to "Pound" Brian Kilmeade; Amazingly, Brian Stetler and Sopran Deb, Who Routinely Decry Threats Against the Media, Claim That Kimmel Meant Give "Fist Bumps" to Kilmeade

—Ace

If your political tactic is always accusing your opponents of threatening the media, but a fellow left-liberal propagandist threatens a member of the media, what do you do?

Follow your claimed rule and criticize him?

Hell no -- claim that you believe that a threat to "pound" someone the next time he's encountered is instead a promise to give him Obama-style "fist bumps."

"I don't get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep. Oh, I'll pound you when I see you," Kimmel threatened.

To which alleged media critic Brian Stetler and alleged reporter Sopran Deb responded:


Jimmy Kimmel probably thinks he's a tough guy. He did take some boxing lessons -- that's where he met future partner Adam Carolla. Adam Carolla was a boxing coach, and coached Kimmel.

So... a guy who's taken boxing lessons threatens to "pound" someone he clearly hates and this means, according to these sissy liars, "offer fist-bumps to"?

Well here's a question. Apropos of nothing, I'm taking martial arts lessons.

If I say that if I ever encounter these two lisping sissies in real life I'll "pound" them, do they assume I mean "give them fist bumps," or do they report me to the Twitter Social Justice Warrior Safety Council?

The Morning Report 9/21/17

—J.J. Sefton

PowerCorrupts.jpg

Good morning kids. On this first full day of autumn, we're loaded for bear so let's dive right in. First up, Puerto Rico is without power in the wake of Hurricane Maria as it continues to barrel westward across the Caribbean, while rescuers are frantically combing through the rubble in Mexico City which was pulverized by Tuesday's earthquake.

Domestically, even as our worst fears of the utter lawlessness of those wielding power in DC have been confirmed, Robert Mueller is doubling down and searching for any shred of wrongdoing by anyone even remotely associated with the President in the effort to derail and delegitimize his presidency and the will of the American people. Related to that is the revelation that Samantha Power unmasked Americans during the final year of the Obama occupation at a frantic pace to achieve the exact same thing; first in a bid to prevent his election and then to destroy it before the stench of the Obama taint could be eviscerated from the Oval Office. Not enough praise for Daniel Greenfield's piece Ace posted yesterday afternoon that puts everything into stark and shocking focus.

After the President's phenomenal speech at the UN, the big question is will he keep the Iran nuke sellout in place or will he scrap it? His comments during his speech, which in effect was a slap at Obama that rhetorically pinned his ears back, seem to indicate that he is inclined to do so, though there is friction between Rexxon who wants to keep it (that's shock, right?) and Nikki Haley who wants it scrapped. She is turning into the President's best pick so far. And when Pence runs in 2024 I would think she would be the natural pick for veep.

Mitch McCriminal is trying to whip votes to pass the last-ditch Obamacare Repeal/Replace which some accounts describe as merely a window-dressing "overhaul." I'm not enough of a wonk to fully get it; some sources I generally trust think it's actually pretty good, all things considered and some feel it's a stunt. I've also seen reports that Rick Santorum stands to profit handsomely by some aspects of this (it was on Hoft's site, so color me skeptical). In any case, I fully expect McStains and Murkowski to torpedo it at the last minute because, principles.

Fresh off being completely humiliated by the beast of her own creation, Nancy Pelosi spewed praise on the illegal aliens who used their children as pawns and brought or sent them here to which Tucker Carlson responded as only he can. Palate cleanser is an understatement.

Lastly, as the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah comes tonight, I leave you with two things of note. First, the US has opened its first permanent base in Israel's Negev Desert. That is kind of surprising and in the wake of PDT's UN speech might be telegraphing a message to Iran. And we say farewell to a man named Mitchell Flint. After his service in World War 2 as a US Navy fighter pilot, he went on to volunteer in the nascent Israeli Air Force during its war for independence in 1948. He passed away peacefully at the age of 94. (Click here for "A Wing and a Prayer")

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed. L'shana tovah to you all!

Quotes of The Day


Quote I

One thing I am convinced more and more is true and that is this: the only way to be truly happy is to make others happy. When you realize that and take advantage of the fact, everything is made perfect. William Carlos Williams

Quote II

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife; and you shall not desire your neighbor’s house, his field, his male servant, his female servant, his ox, his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.” Deuteronomy 5:21

Politicians should pay attention to this command.

Quote III

Society is produced by our wants, and government by wickedness; the former promotes our happiness positively by uniting our affections, the latter negatively by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher. Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil. Thomas Paine

Media Strangely Silent About Their Own Role in Covering Up the Spying Scandal

—Ace


Also see Don Surber's great post, The Media's Wire-Tap Dancing, about the media's before-and-after coverage here. Before: Claiming it was a vast rightwing deranged conspiracy theory to say Trump had been wiretapped. After: Reporting he'd been wiretapped, but, somehow, forgetting completely to note their prior swearing on a stack of Bibles that this was unpossible, Because Obama Good By Definition.

The whole Russian meddling was a ruse to justify spying on Trump. The mainstream media went along with the gag because they wanted to protect Obama, and they wanted to overturn the election.

The billionaire financiers of these news organizations – particularly Sir Rupert Murdoch at Fox News, Carlos Slim at the Times, and Jeff Bezos at the Post – all backed Clinton as did Bob Iger, chief executive officer of Disney, which owned ABC and ESPN. While certainly much of the Fake News reflected liberal editors, who hired social justice warriors as reporters, corporate interests benefited from the protection from competition big government regulations provided. Bezos in particularly wanted to government’s aid in expanding his online retail empire, which is why he bought the Post.

The media became biased long before John Kennedy became president.

Hinderacker at Power Line’s reaction to Trump's tweets spoke for many, "This is astonishing to me, as I have never heard a word about this story. If the Obama administration abused the FISA process to wiretap a political opponent, it is a scandal of the first order -- the worst political scandal of my lifetime, easily. And the press has known about it and covered it up? Unbelievable."

Confident the president had no proof of subterfuge, the press mocked him.

"A Conspiracy Theory's Journey from Talk Radio to Trump’s Twitter," read a New York Times headline on March 5.

"Stephen King trolls Trumps wiretapping tweets as only a horror writer could," read a Washington Post headline on the same day.

"White House aides struggle to defend Trump wiretap claims," read a Post headline on March 6.

As Dan Greenfield suggested, the guilty must commit more transgressions to cover up their previous ones.
