The Horde of Migrants The Media Swears Does Not Exists Reaches Tijuana, Attempts to Scale Border Fence

—Ace of Spades

Yeah we don't need a border wall.

More than a dozen people were arrested trying to illegally cross the border by the KKK, I mean, by the Border Patrol.

More than a dozen members of the migrant caravan were arrested Wednesday night along U.S.-Tijuana border, a border patrol source in the San Diego sector told Fox News.

A small group was arrested near the beach in an area called Playas de Tijuana. A large group was arrested in the mountains east of Otay Mesa, a San Diego community that straddles the Mexican border, the source said. All were arrested for trying to cross the border illegally, the source said.


Separately, a fight broke out Wednesday night in Tijuana between local Mexicans and Hondurans arriving in the caravan. The migrants complained that the locals were yelling: "Go home. We don't want you here!" Members of the caravan complained to reporters that local police made no attempt to break up the fight.

Video at the link. You can see these Future Americans sitting atop the border fence taunting the Border Patrol.

Tucker Carlson said last night that it must be "embarrassing" for the left (including its media) to see the horde they claimed did not exist scaling the border fence and sitting on it while taunting US Border Patrol personnel.

Carlson played video of several reporters and commentators playing down the caravan, including comedian Bill Maher who called President Trump "the racist Paul Revere [saying] 'the migrants are coming, the migrants are coming'."

With people now seen sitting atop the border fence near its end at the ocean in Tijuana, Carlson said, "what 'would' you call it?"

"This is a recurring theme on the left -- don't believe your own eyes, you're too dumb to believe your own senses. There is no illegal immigration crisis."

Carlson said Democrats "will tell you that on-a-loop until they take power."

But I don't think they're embarrassed. I think they believe there is virtue and good in denying reality, also known as "lying."

As one of CNN's several antifa apologists Chris Cuomo said, some punches are more virtuous than others, and so therefore some lies are virtuous too.

Deadline for Florida's Recount Passed at 3pm; Bill Nelson Filed Suit to Ignore the Law and Allow Democrats More Time to Manufacture Votes;
Federal Judge Refuses His Request

—Ace of Spades

But we're not out of the woods yet. Democrats are still counting on finding a judge to claim that illegal votes are legal.

A federal judge is refusing to suspend looming election recount deadlines in the battleground state of Florida.

U.S. District Judge Mark Walker on Thursday rejected a request by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Democrats to give counties more time to finish recounts. All 67 counties are required to submit the results of a machine recount by 3 p.m.

Palm Beach County's election supervisor has already warned that the county will not be able to finish on time.

The Democrat plan here -- illegally changing the deadlines for voting (well, "curing" defective votes), etc., and then getting a liberal judge to invalidate the law -- is so obvious that even CNN understands the game:



"The letter of the law." Like it's a minor thing. Sure, let's get all loosey-goosey about the set-in-stone laws about voting and vote-counting and vote-reporting.

That won't spark a civil war or anything.

And I'm sure the Democrats would be just jake if Republicans similarly wanted to ignore a few provisions of the voting law themselves.

Update, Via John Ekdahl: John Ekdahl has been giving me updates.

He says, despite what the news says about a judge denying a request for more time, that Palm Beach County has been given more time to finish their recount.

Update to the update: John says that Palm Beach missed the deadline, and they'll just have to submit the pre-recount numbers. He says he might have gotten confused about Palm Beach having been granted an extension -- maybe he was thinking about a lawsuit asking for that.

As for Broward, some good news:



That's a swing, I take it, from their last bullshit numbers, after they added thousands and thousands of votes for Nelson and Gillum.

Another update: John says we're now going to get a hand recount but only for the Senate race. The governor's race is separated by too many votes for a hand recount.

So now we're going to see ballots manipulated on camera again.

Oh, wow.

So they got what they were trying for: Having lost the game, they faked the score to get a Fifth Quarter to play in.

Kamala Harris: ICE is a Hate Organization Like the KKK

—Ace of Spades

Strange how the media's frenzied worrying about unhinged rhetoric and lunatic conspiracy theories melts away when such claims come from the mouth of a Democrat.

After asking the nominee to head ICE, Ronald Vitello, about the KKK and what its motivations were, Harris began demanding to know if he saw connections between the KKK, a terrorist organization, and ICE, a federal law-enforcement agency.

"Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels ..." she asked.

Vitiello interjected before Harris could name ICE and the KKK: "I do not see any parallels."

"That puts ICE in the same category as the KKK. Is that what you're asking me?" he said.

"No, I'm very specific in what I'm asking you. Are you aware of a perception that they way that they ..." Harris said.

"I see none," Vitiello said.

"Are you aware that there is a perception that ICE is administering its power in a way that is causing fear and intimidation, particularly among immigrants and specifically among immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America?" she asked.

Vitiello said he did not. Harris asked how he could be the head of an agency and not be aware of how some view it.


"It seems to me that you would understand that when you use words like the words you used just three short years ago, that that would contribute to that perception," Harris said. "And it's harmful then, it's harmful, in terms of the mission of the agency and the work of the individuals there. And it is harmful in terms of leading -- innocent people arriving at our border fleeing harm, it is harmful to them."

Straight White Racist Pastor Forces Drag Queen to Leave Church and Come Back Only When Dressed In Man-Clothes

—Ace of Spades

I can't even with this White Racism anymore.

A Chicago pastor who asked a man dressed in drag to leave a worship service because he was dressed like a woman stands by his actions after coming under fire.

...

"Can you leave my church and go put on man clothes? And don't come here like that no more," Rocquemore can be seen telling the man in the video, posted by Christian James Lhuillier.

"i hold a standard in here. Whatever you do on the outside is your business, but I will not let drag queens come in here. If you're gonna come in here you're gonna dress like a man."


People in the crowd cheered and said "Amen" and "thank you Jesus" as Rocquemore addressed the young man.

Video of the white racist Republican pastor, who compounds his sin even further by dressing in a (very convincing) blackface make up application, at the link.

More here. It should be noted that these "Christian" sites are completely ignoring the blackface angle. What makes this even more #Triggering is that almost the entire congregation also appears to be in blackface.

McConnell Blocks Grandstanding Flake's Unconstitutional Bill to Make Mueller Unfirable

—Ace of Spades

Flake really wants that nomination of the KOP (Kristol Ops Party).

Legislation protecting special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired was blocked in the Senate on Wednesday.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) asked for consent to bring the legislation, which has stalled after being passed in the Judiciary Committee in April, to the Senate floor for a vote.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blocked his request.

Under the Senate's rules, a senator can come to the Senate floor and ask for consent to get a vote or pass a bill. Any one senator can block their request.


McConnell didn't explain his move from the floor but it came hours after he told reporters that he believed that Mueller should be able to finish his investigation and that he didn't believe the special counsel was in danger of being fired.

"There's been no indication ... that Mueller investigation will not be allowed to finish and it should be allowed to finish. We know how the president feels about the Mueller investigation but he's never said he wants to shut it down," McConnell told reporters during a press conference.

Someone needs to invent a robot that will just follow these guys around patting them on the back and cooing, "You're so brave and special," so that they will stop making spectacles of themselves.

"No Evidence of Electoral Fraud:" Florida Democrat Party Plotted to Send Out Forged Ballots Permitting People to Vote After the Election

—Ace of Spades

Nothing to see here, folks.

Note that the media rages about non-existent fraud in Georgia while ignoring the actual fraud in Florida -- and while claiming only a conspiracy theorist would talk about voter fraud.

They literally say that in between screaming about Georgia fraud.

TALLAHASSEE -- A day after Florida's election left top state races too close to call, a Democratic party leader directed staffers and volunteers to share altered election forms with voters to fix signature problems on absentee ballots after the state's deadline.

The altered forms surfaced in Broward, Santa Rosa, Citrus and Okaloosa counties and were reported to federal prosecutors to review for possible election fraud as Florida counties complete a required recount in three top races.

But an email obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK-Florida shows that Florida Democrats were organizing a broader statewide effort beyond those counties to give voters the altered forms to fix improper absentee ballots after the Nov. 5 deadline. Democratic party leaders provided staffers with copies of a form, known as a "cure affidavit," that had been modified to include an inaccurate Nov. 8 deadline.

One Palm Beach Democrat said in an interview the idea was to have voters fix and submit as many absentee ballots as possible with the altered forms in hopes of later including them in vote totals if a judge ruled such ballots were allowed.

U.S. Chief Judge Mark Walker ruled Thursday that voters should have until Saturday to correct signatures on ballots, a move that could open the door for these ballots returned with altered forms to be counted. Republicans supporting Gov. Rick Scott, who leads Nelson by less than 13,000 votes in the recount, appealed the ruling.

I saw a commenter saying the Democrats' October Surprise this year was a November Surprise -- just having their faithful vote after the elections, and relying on the presence of a leftwing judge to bless it as somehow legal.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

She supports BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions), has friends in very low places, and flat-out lied about her stance on Israel to garner support from naive Minnesota Jews. Sounds like a typical Democrat!

Let's face it, most of the real anti-Semitism and and anti-Zionism (it's the same thing really) comes from the Left. Sure, there is a small, thoroughly infiltrated neo-Nazi movement in America, but I'm not worried about their brand of Jew-Hate. I am very aware of the vitriol and antipathy directed at Israel and American Jews from the Democrat party. Oh, their leaders make pretty noises about support for Israel and American Jewry, but their base...their deeply deluded, violent, anti-freedom base...is structurally anti-Semitic because their roots reach into revolutionary movements around the world, most of which are allied with the pallies or the growing Islamic influence in Europe. Just look at college campuses all across the country for proof. Hell, Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labor party in England is an out-and-proud Jew-hater, and he has an outside chance of being the prime minister of the UK.

Ilhan Omar's Election Shows Democrats Aren't Interested In Confronting Anti-Semitism

Ilhan Omar, one of the first of two Muslim women to be elected to Congress, is a new kind of politician. She’s telegenic. Ideologically progressive. Widely celebrated by a media that’s obsessed with identity politics. She’s the kind of politician who can openly side with Hamas against Israel or spread “Protocols of Zion”-style conspiracies on Twitter, claiming that Jews possess the supernatural ability to hypnotize the world as they unfurl their “evil.”

It’s not surprising, then, that Omar also supports the “boycott, divestment and sanctions” movement (BDS). In a statement to the website Muslim Girl (later confirmed elsewhere), someone on Omar’s staff explains that, yes, “Ilhan believes in and supports the BDS movement, and has fought to make sure people’s right to support it isn’t criminalized. She does however, have reservations on the effectiveness of the movement in accomplishing a lasting solution.”

This vile, anti-American, anti-freedom Democrat is practicing taqiyya, and will say whatever it takes to gain power and advance her agenda, which probably includes sharia and "reeducation camps."

The Morning Report - 11/15/18

—J.J. Sefton

nansharp.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday and frankly I just mentally can't get myself in gear to write anything worthy of your time so I''m going to keep it brief. Aside from my allergies bugging me this morning, the news taken in toto is just getting me down. I'm fairly optimistic by nature but expanding on Rush Limbaugh's rant below, with thousands of essentially male, military age peasants from third world shit-holes doing all they can to set foot on our soil and claim citizenship, with a political party bent on openly stealing elections they didn't win as allies in their propaganda arm pump out the big lie that it is our party and citizenry that are the criminals stealing elections, when actual, dictionary definition neo-Nazi thugs physically confront and intimidate people while claiming the mantle of being anti-fascist and as the last vestige of Americans carry the true meaning of what this nation is all about to the grave and are replaced by others who have been and continue to be brainwashed into becoming "true believers" that we and this nation are evil and must be transformed or destroyed, well, I'm just in a funk about it. The headlines and players may change from day to day, but it's the same old story. It could've been worse - Hillary Clinton could right now be in the Oval Office and I keep reminding myself of that whenever I get down. But the question remains, is Trump a harbinger or merely an aberration that is delaying the inevitable? The world wonders...

The headlines generally speak for themselves but some of the ones that stand out include one that will likely get very little if any coverage: that the computer models that undergird the entire global warming/climate change call-it-what-you-will doomsday "theory" are now admitted by their pimps in lab coats to be so fundamentally flawed as to be proven wrong. Meh, tell it to your average Lefty and the response will be "burn witch!"

Three links illustrate how evil Lefty blood money from basically a handful of sources makes the multi-headed Hydra/Cerberus of sedition and treason go round; First, Daniel Greenfield on billionaire bucks flooding the zone with outside cash to swamp local elections, second, filmmaker Ami Horowitz uncovering how the invasion caravan is a totally funded and pre-planned Leftist op and Soros money is behind a Red-Green Ludditism push in Texas.

In politics, it's same-old same-old for GOP leadership with a few links berating that party for screwing up and losing the House. Also, Nancy Palsi metaphorically fellates Al Sharpton with verbiage to induce the gag-reflex. We also have a number of good links on the nature of "nationalism" as it relates to the President's usage of that word and the media's attempted crucifying him for it, more on the idiocy of the Jm J Acosta/CNN lawsuit - if you're lurking Sarah Sanders, you can send me the press pass courtesy of this website - and the lame duck GOP is scrambling to pass legislation including that crime reform bill which I have serious reservations about vis a vis sentencing guidelines, whoever is still giving advice on appointments in the White House needs to be shit-canned and the goons have forced an independent candidate in Seattle from running after intimidating his wife, and an essay on the death of California.

Internationally, there's a ceasefire for now on the Israel-Medieval Thug border, Chi-Com military expansion, a very shoddy Brexit deal finally passes, and some psyho pro-Palestine shyster went apeshit on an airplane when she was refused alcohol.

From hither and yon, a male teacher gets blasted for not allowing a middle school girl to strip in a boys locker room, Disney's new "Nutcracker" is a ball-buster, the Left goes nuts when PDT awards Sheldon Adelson's wife a medal and on nationalism as a cause of World War One, or not.

Apologies for kind of phoning it in this morning. Will try and do more better-er tomorrow-ish.

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

Hasbro Offers "Monopoly for Millennials," Which... Goofs on Millennials?

—Ace of Spades

Apparently this is real.

But I don't think it's for Millennials.

I think it's for everyone else -- people who don't like Millennials.

Millennials are, get this, whining in outrage about someone having fun at their expense.

Here's a story about the game, and here's one of those unboxing videos. Just to prove this is real.

One change to classic monopoly is that you don't buy real estate -- because Millennials don't -- so you instead collect "experiences," like going to a "three day music festival" or sitting in the house all day binging Netflix.

Women's March Chapter: We Don't #BelieveAllWomen When It Comes to St. Michael of the Blessed Right Hook

But the Brantford (Canada) Chapter of the Women's March (!!!) has announced it does not #BelieveAllWomen in this case.

Brett Kavanaugh wants to know if they waited for all the evidence in his case, or if the allegation was enough.

After all, a woman -- the victim -- did swear out this police complaint.

Something that Dr. Blasey of the incorruptible hippocampus never bothered to do.

DeVos to Announce New Title IX Rules That Guarantee Some Minimum Due Process Safeguards to the Accused

—Ace of Spades

What a monster.

Can you believe accused people will have the chance to actually know what the charges against them are? What is this, a Harry Potter book where Voldemort lets Harry know what the charges against him are?!?!

Sorry, I don't think that was a good analogy. But I'm given to understand one should always reference Harry Potter or The Handmaid's Tale when outraged.

Educati on Secretary Betsy DeVos is set to release a sweeping overhaul of how colleges and universities must handle allegations of sexual assault and harassment, giving new rights to the accused, including the ability to cross-examine their accusers, people familiar with the matter said.

The proposal is set for release before Thanksgiving, possibly this week, and replaces less formal guidance issued by the Obama administration in 2011. The new rules would reduce liability for universities, tighten the definition of sexual harassment, and allow schools to use a higher standard in evaluating claims of sexual harassment and assault.

...

The most significant change would guarantee the accused the right to cross-examine their accusers, though it would have to be conducted by advisers or attorneys for the people involved, rather than by the person accused of misconduct. If requested, the parties could be in separate rooms during the cross-examination, an administration official said. They said this was done to bolster the due process rights of the accused while assuring that victims are not directly confronted by their assailants.

...

Recent court decisions requiring public universities to allow the accused the right to cross-examination when credibility is an issue figured in the administration's reasoning, two people said.

...

The biggest may be the standard of proof required in assessing claims. Under the DeVos proposal, schools will be allowed to choose between "preponderance of the evidence" and the higher bar of "clear and convincing" evidence. The Obama guidelines had directed schools to use the "preponderance of the evidence" standard.

A choice, huh?

Well... not really, brah.

The regulation also will require schools to use the same standard in these cases as they use for other complaints, including those against employees and faculty. Many union contracts and other agreements with faculty mandate the use of a higher "clear and convincing" standard, several people said. So as a practical matter, most schools may be forced to apply the same higher bar for student complaints.

Seems fair -- if you think a mere preponderance of the evidence standard is enough to prove student misbehavior, then surely that standard also should suffice for college professors and administrators, right?

Right?

"She Hit Me First:" Defender of Women Everywhere, Michael Avenatti, Arrested for Felony Domestic Violence; Wife Female Victim Reportedly Seen "Swollen and Bruised"

—Ace of Spades

We probably should have seen this coming.

I'm pretty embarrassed I didn't call it.

He looks "hitty." Assuming a woman is smaller than he is, which is sort of a narrow window, because I hear he's not a very large fellow.

Michael ["Slappy"] Avenatti, who became famous for representing Stormy Daniels in her battle with President Trump, has been arrested for felony domestic violence ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our law enforcement sources say ["Pimp-Hand"] Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after his estranged wife filed a felony DV report. We're told her face was "swollen and bruised."

Our sources say the alleged incident occurred Tuesday, but there was a confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A.

We're told during today's confrontation the woman ran out of the apartment building and was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, screaming on the phone, "I can't believe you did this to me."

We're told security brought her inside the building and Michael showed up 5 minutes later, ran into the building, chasing after her. He screamed repeatedly, "She hit me first."

Update: Slappy Avenatti's estranged wife says it wasn't her involved in this punch-up. TMZ has now corrected that they "now know" the woman who filed the complaint was not Slappy's wife.

...

"She hit me first."

What a fighter.

Now, I know the Democrats are willing to excuse a stray bit of rape or depraved-heart murder against women, but I don't think Michael 'Ave-a-KnuckleSandwich's presidential hopes are going to survive this.

TMZ says 'Ave-a-KnuckleSandwich is "currently in custody."

Coming Soon: The debut of the Austin Powers "She's a mannnn, baby!" defense.

Hey, Remember When 'Ave-A-KnuckleSandwich Challenged Donald Trump Jr. to Some Kind of MMA Match?

I wonder if he was just sparring with his wife, without telling her beforehand.

Jeff Flake: I Will Tank Conservative Judicial Nominations Until an Unconstitutional Bill Purporting to Limit the President's Power to Fire Executive Personnel Is Voted On

Bonus/Update to Last Story: First, it looks like Julie Kelly did elicit comment from NeverTrumper Jon Podhoretz. You know, the guy who pays himself almost $400,000 a year to "run" the amateur Republican Cosplay webzine Commentary.*

He's accusing anyone of reporting on Bill's new donors of "drooling McCarthyism."

My my -- sounds... defensive!



And... I say, why, what's this? Look who was spreading Pierre Omidyar's twitter propaganda back in January 2017!!!



Huh -- the marginally employable Rick Wilson suddenly became un intime cher of Pierre Omidyar's after the election.

Quelle surprise! Quel choc!

I bet you if we begin searching certain accounts for defenses or retweets of big-money leftist donor Pierre Omidyar, we'll find lots and lots of interesting connections!!!

BTW, Omidyar also funds Glenn Greenwald's The Intercept, which pretty much justifies every Hamas attack on Israel. Sometimes they even kinda-sorta say the Jews are bombing themselves (in as much as "they created Hamas").

So this is NeverTrump's sugar-daddy.

#MuhPrinciples.


* By the way: Look at his Twitter timeline. It's constant yammering on Twitter.

It's sometimes every two or three minutes! And that's just his posting! Obviously he's doing some reading of twitter in between making terrible jokes on Twitter.

Bill Kristol Replies to Disclosure He's Funded by Left-Wing Tech Billionaire: Thank God for the "Public Spiritedness of the Left," I Just Wish We Could See Equal "Public Spiritedness on the Right"

—Ace of Spades

So this is an implicit admission: He links Julie Kelly's story and congratulates his left-wing friends on their "public spiritedness." He only wishes the right, which he concedes is not funding him at the left's level, would also give him equal amounts of money.

I mean, give him equal amounts of "public spiritedness."


By the way, this same left-wing billionaire also bankrolled Evan McMullin. Go figure. Other left-wing Silicon Valley magnates funded him too, but McMullin hid behind "dark money" laws to hide their identities.

A defense of Kristol will be made that his principles haven't changed, only the marks he's grifting money from, so why shouldn't he take the money?

Well, let me ask Kristol's defenders this: Do they really imagine Kristol is not compromised by a desire to please his new benefactors?

Is it just a coincidence that Weekly Standard employees -- not employees of Kristol's various money-grifting political organizations-- seem to move in lockstep to support his political organizations' operations?

Is there really no diversity of opinion at all at the Weekly Standard? Or is it just accepted that if you disagree with the goals Kristol's buckraking operations, you keep your mouth shut?

I emailed Lee Smith at his Weekly Standard address to ask for his opinion about this, but I found out Smith had been fired days after he submitted a report on FusionGPS.

I'm sure that was just a coincidence, though.

I ask again: What is Weekly Standard's policy about keeping a separation between magazine business -- the Standard is supposedly an independent journal of opinion, after all -- and Bill Kritol's buckraking political ops?

Do they have a policy of separation to make sure that Kristol's extracurricular activities do not overly influence supposedly-independent magazine journalism? Or is it all just loosey-goosey and anything goes?

The response to these questions from Kristol's NeverTrump friends, below.

Fox Files Briefing In Support of CNN's Curious Claim That Jim Acosta Is the One Citizen In the Whole of the US with a Constitutional Right to a WH Pass

—Ace of Spades

Cucks.



Meanwhile, James Freeman of the WSJ and Mollie Hemingway of somewhere or other disagree:



BTW, if anyone can access that article, please quote some if it in a comment. I'd like to put up an excerpt.

Mollie Hemingway wrote her own response to Jim Accoster.

Jim Acosta Bears Most of the Blame

Precisely no one actually thinks that Acosta is a good news journalist. He might be good entertainment, for some, but he doesn’t break news or accurately report it. He's a pundit who loves to offer his opinions all day, every day.


Even among his colleagues he’s known as a preener rather than a reporter. He doesn’t break stories or dig into facts. He preens on camera and does it in a way that makes it harder for legitimate press corps members to hold the administration accountable .

Every second that Acosta uses to preen and whine at a press conference is a second that a real journalist can't use to ask questions or elicit information the American people need to know about. His behavior doesn’t just damage his own reputation, it hurts CNN’s and the entire journalism profession.

His behavior last week crossed a line when he physically refused a young female intern attempting to provide the White House microphone to another reporter. He then doubled down and falsely claimed without evidence that he didn't touch her. In fact, video evidence showing he did touch her is incontrovertible.

A commenter had a great idea (which is just a sort of revenge fantasy) should a Hawaiian judge rule that Jim Acosta does have some special penubraic right to a hard pass:

Trump should declare that if Acosta has a personal constitutional right to a hard pass, so does every citizen in America, given that no queeny drama volcano has special rights over any other citizen.

Therefore, he should announce that one-week passes will be available by the lottery system, and news departments must sign up for the lottery like any other citizen. 40 names will be drawn each week and if the media's names aren't called, so be it!

Now, before anyone says, "But you'll have a bunch of partisan crazies cursing out Sarah Sanders...!"

How is that any different than the current system? At least around half of the lottery winners would say things like "MAGA!" and "CNN SUCKS!"

Filmmaker Embedded in "Migrant" Caravan: This Caravan Costs Millions of Dollars. Who's Paying for It? Why Isn't Any Media Asking Who's Paying For It?

—Ace of Spades

He says the main group funding for this, Peublo Sin Fronteras, is being funded by groups which have been funded by [CENSORED] in the past.

Because you're not allowed to say George Soros funds the left, according to the left and the left-adjacent "conservatives" which have suddenly grown so very protective of him now that, coincidentally, their previous streams of grifty funding have diminished.

Completely unrelated, but over at the Weekly Standard, proud partner of famously-conservative organization FaceBook, they've once again fact-checked a right-leaning micro-rando to, get this, defend George Soros' good name.

In this case, they don't even try to establish this "conspiracy theory" is widespread. They do not demonstrate it has any reach. They can't say it's widespread; the most they can say is that it "has begun to resurface."

It has begun to resurface? Well then -- let's call in the Sixth Fleet! This aggression will not stand.

In fact, they cheekily even reference the fact that they spend a lot of time defending George Soros' good name these days.

In further fact, they even reference the fact that I've referenced that fact.

Fact Check: Another Soros Conspiracy Theory HOLMES LYBRAND 1 MIN READ

November 5, 2018 at 3:44 PM

"Oh look, TWS is defending Soros again." -Ace, probably.

Yeah those are actually the first words of their "fact-check."

And yes, they're defending Soros again. Of course.

I imagine the fact-check is probably accurate enough; I just wonder why they're spending so much time tracking down each and every minor reference to Soros and defending him as if he were, I don't know, paying handsomely for the reputation-rehabilitation service or something.

Which I'm sure is just preposterous. George Soros doesn't fund political organizations that advance his leftist vision of the world, ever. It's antisemitic to say otherwise.

The Weekly Standard lets a thousand false claims by the left pass by unmolested, but say one thing about George Soros, and bang! They're on it like grifters on a well-heeled sap.

Broseiden Asks... Why is it antisemitic to criticize George Soros' funding of the left, given that Soros is not really Jewish, while it is not antisemitic to attack Sheldon Adelson's funding of the right, even though he is Jewish?

It's almost as if the "antisemitic" claim is being deployed in a dishonest manner to protect a well-heeled ally and not deployed so that attacks on an enemy can continue unimpeded.

Angela Merkle Supports Macron's Idea to Raise a European Army to Fight The United States

—Ace of Spades

Okay.

Good-bye.

You do you, guys. We're bringing our troops home.

She suggested that the EU needs their own standing army so they can be well defended against possible aggression. She was supporting Macron's recent comments where he said Europe needed protection from, "China, Russia and even the United States of America."


When you've got the Brits standing up and yelling "rubbish" at you, you've really touched a nerve.

Julie Kelly: Bill Kristol's NeverTrump Front Groups Are Funded By Billionaire Leftist Money

—Ace of Spades

Who funds the Bill Kristol Retirement Fund?

NeverTrump "conservatives" are aiding Schiff and the media in their campaign to paralyze if not remove [new acting AG Matthew] Whitaker. Commercials attacking the acting attorney general were aired on several Sunday morning political shows. The ads were sponsored by "Republicans for the Rule of Law," a group founded earlier this year by Bill Kristol, the editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard. The group's primary role so far appears to be pimping for the Mueller probe, a political witch-hunt that Kristol and his fellow NeverTrumpers pray will lead to the impeachment and removal of the president. The Left and their NeverTrump footsoldiers fear Whitaker will thwart the special counsel's investigation instead of rubber stamping Mueller's ever-expanding investigation as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has done over the past 18 months.

Buying primo air time on network television doesn't come cheap. So who is funding "Republicans for the Rule of Law" and their attacks on the Republican president and his acting attorney general? Is it big Republican donors?

We haven't found any, but we have learned learned that one of Kristol's benefactors is progressive billionaire Pierre Omidyar, the co-founder of eBay.


In addition to funding dissident ex-conservatives, Omidyar, 51, and his wife--who have pledged to give their more than $10 billion fortune to charity--operate an extensive network of nonprofits and foundations around the world. Omidyar has directed millions of dollars to a variety of progressive causes and political candidates: he and wife "have have given more than $500,000 to federal candidates and groups--nearly all of them Democrats--since 1999," including six-figure donations to the Democratic senate and congressional campaign committees.

The Omidyars have also been among the most prolific supporters of left-wing causes for years. According to a 2014 report by the Media Research Center, "Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Pierre Omidyar, Tom Steyer and George Soros's son, Jonathan are major funders of the left. Together, they have contributed at least $2.7 billion since 2000 to groups pushing abortion, gun control, climate change alarmism and liberal candidates." And lately, Omidyar seems to have become a big fan of Kristol's, probably because of their mutual hatred of Donald Trump. Digging a little deeper it looks like they may have more in common since Kristol has recently found his "inner socialist" and he now opposes Republican candidates.




One of Omidyar's nonprofits is the Democracy Fund. In 2015, the Democracy Fund awarded nearly $9 million in grants, "many of which went to left-wing organizations" One Democracy Fund recipient is currently in court fighting the results of the Georgia gubernatorial race, which was won by Republican Brian Kemp.


An affiliate of that fund disclosed on its website that it has given as least $600,000 to Kristol's umbrella group, Defending Democracy Together, since May. (Other NeverTrumpers involved in the group are author Mona Charen, strategist Linda Chavez, and former governor Christine Todd Whitman.) Republicans for the Rule of Law operates under the purview of Defending Democracy Together.

So why is a group of so-called principled "conservatives" accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars from a leftist billionaire who has shown zero dedication to conservative causes, an activist who finances interests that are inimical to conservative values and policies, and who bankrolls Democratic candidates hostile to mainstream conservatives?

Because the same phonies who claims to be all about principles and integrity are now the folks willing to do almost anything to take down Trump. (Remember that the next time they lecture pro-Trump Republicans about being a cult.)

Note that while Weekly Standard staff supposedly work for The Weekly Standard and not Bill Kristol (or his billionaire leftist tech donors), they seem to follow Bill Kristol in whatever his latest grift is:


Does the staff of the Weekly Standard belong to the actual Weekly Standard, or are they just all Bill Kristol's gofers?

Does the Weekly Standard have any kind of firewall or protocol about separating magazine business and magazine resources from Bill Kristol's leftist-funded extracurricular activities, or is it all just a sort of slush-fund Thunderdome?

Kelly also notes -- and I'm grateful for this -- that Kristol and his hangers-on have seemed strangely compulsive about defending the good name of the totally-not-a-socialist-sugardaddy George Soros lately. This strikes some of us as interesting, because, and see if you can follow this, Bill Kristol and his remora fish need a lot of money to continue living large while doing almost no work, and George Soros, by strangest of fortune, has a lot of money, and gives it to advance the leftist agenda.

She says "more on that later." Can't wait.


Note: The corporate owners of The Weekly Standard shuffled Bill Kristol off from his Editor in Chief job to an Editor at Large job -- not the editor. Supposedly just a senior writer.

And yet the staff seems to follow his every (leftist-funded) political directive.

Is he the editor in chief or is he not?

People have suspected that Bill Kristol never really left the Editor in Chief job, and that this move was mostly a fiction to try to insulate The Weekly Standard from fallout from Kristol's increasingly toxic persona.

Would the Weekly Standard like to confirm this suspicion? If a gofer like Michael Warren jumps to do Bill Kristol's political organization work, doesn't that mean Kristol is still calling the shots and his removal as editor in chief was always a scam?

Is there any separation between Bill Kristol's leftist-funded political work and the Weekly Standard's supposedly free-and-independent "journalistic" operations, or nah?

Question: Are any Weekly Standard personnel double-dipping -- collecting a check from both the Weekly Standard as well as from Kristol's left-wing political venture socialists?

"Did you know that the first ever Korean-American woman was elected to congress last week? It's not official, but Young Kim's 1900+ vote lead over Gil Cisneros in California's 39th CD is apparently going to hold. This is a seat formerly held by a retiring Republican, so it's not a GOP pick-up, but where are the loud huzzahs from the doyens of diversity and the demands that we celebrate Kim's race and gender and how we're racist if we don't applaud with the requisite enthusiasm? Actually, I *am* applauding, but not because of Ms. Kim's ethnic background or gender, but because she's a Republican. Which is probably why our betters in the MSM aren't saying too much about it."

The Morning Report - 11/14/18

—J.J. Sefton

PelLoop.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek and the big story continues to be the hostage situation in Florida (and perhaps Georgia as well) with the attempted theft of another Senate seat and governorship. And yes, I do mean to imply that, however piss-poor a campaign and candidate Martha McSally was, the evidence strongly suggests the Democrats stole that election as well (and there's also the last minute shit-ton of ballots up in Milwaukee that torpedoed Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir,, shenanigans out in LA and quite a number of other races all over that are ripe for the swiping but if I keep going with more examples, we'll be here all day).

As I have mentioned both here and various threads ever since last week, and even before all this, after 2016 and what has so far been an incredibly successful first two years of the first Trump administration, the Democrats are going to go all out and attempt to steal not only Florida but every single swing state and district they can come 2020. Matt Gaetz echoes my sentiments openly in a link below, and of that I have absolutely no doubt. Aside from the filthy, banana republic nature of this, the Democrat-Left-Media complex is continuing the mass propaganda/big lie that started with George W. Bush in 2000, to wit, that whenever Democrats win elections it's the will of the people, but whenever Republicans win, they did it be disenfranchising the typical "victims," subverted Democracy and stole it. Of all the projections the Left smears us with, this one is particularly disgusting. It also prepares the battle-space, if you will, of the next Democrat propaganda meme; that since the electoral college is a sham meant that enables the white male conservative patriarchy to maintain overlord status over people of color, women etc. etc. (translation: it prevents the Upper West Side and Santa Monica from determining who wins the Presidency), not only must it be abolished but in point of fact, elections themselves must be abolished if we are to achieve true social justice. For the people. We laugh at idiots like Loopy-Ocasio Fiasco at our peril. More on her in a moment. In any case, all the latest links from Palm Beach, Broward and elsewhere dealing with this crap. One in particular shows a very interesting/alarming link about the attempt to steal the election and the hidden gun control agenda. Meh, with Gillum-'n-chill 'em, it's out in the open.

And that brings us to politics where the internecine struggle within the Democrat party is more and more visible. The aforementioned buck-toothed-Bolshevik came down to DC to join in some sort of youth protest outside of Nancy Palsi's office about global warming or something. The salient point is freshmen congressmen are not supposed to do this, especially to a party leader who has been in office for decades. You go where you're kicked or you get buried for two years and then dumped. Evidently Loopy and the other Young Turks Jerks didn't get the message. Despite the destruction the Democrats have wrought since the founding of the nation, and especially over the past 50 years - including the creation of a massive propaganda/brainwashing machine that created these little monsters in the first place - evidently it's neither fast nor thorough enough and so it's time for a purge. If Palsi and company survive this, no doubt the new generation will be seething and embittered, as they were after Hillary and the DNC stole the nomination from that other paragon of youth and vigor Bernie Sanders. And, as an aside, our two-tiered justice system has cleared his wife Jane of all corruption and fraud charges related to her fraud and corruption as a dean of some defunct propaganda mill up in Vermont. Thank goodness, as I was worried that our criminal justice system wouldn't work as it should (*pukes*). Backtracking, if the Young Pioneers manage to wrest control of the Democrat Party in toto, then it will be bust-out in-your-face anti-American socialism 25/8/366 in all 57 states thus guaranteeing their relegation to the political wilderness for the next 40 years. Or will it? Despite the coming of Trump and all the incredible things that came with it, the one thing that we do not control is the brainwashing complex that is academia. Along with the attempt to replace the American population with a permanent underclass of third world, non-English speaking peasantry who know nothing and perhaps care to know nothing of the nation to which they have been allowed to enter (other than where to go to claim their birthright to your money), we have at least two if not three generations of young people who have been lied to about this nation and what it stands for and have been taught to hate it with every fiber of their being. When you see Kyrsten Cinema, Andrew Gillum, Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco, and far too many others, you are staring into the face of America's future. I'm pushing 59 and my time on this rock is ticking away faster and faster. When to even attempt to communicate with young people gets you tagged as a racist, sexist, bigoted, Islamophobic homophobe whose opinions are hate speech, then the outlook is seriously in doubt. Still, here we are, and yet we persist. There's no way to predict the future and I don't believe in inevitability. And for Trump to have been elected defies the odds and perhaps indicates some sort of sea change going on that we just are not aware of, mostly because of who controls the media and the messages. With that, keep hope alive and to be sure take back the damn schools. Anyway, lots of links about the potential Democrat civil war and some negative portents about the GOP going forward.

Moving on to first amendment and fake news news, little Ben Shapiro got protested at Ohio State, even Bob Woodward calls the CNN/JmJ Acosta suit a farce, a man is kicked out of a Disney World ride for the unspeakable crime of having a Trump 2020 sign and Daniel Greenfield on the nature of why the press hates PDT.

On the Amnesty/Invasion front, the first waves of the invaders are evidently at or very near the border now, and as that catastrophe develops, the triple murderer in Missouri who had "sanctuary" in Jersey got here under DACA, even a CNN exit poll shows overwhelming support for Trump's border policies and how the invasion presents an opportunity for the President.

In gun news, a massive spike in permit applications in DC since the laws have been relaxed and a piece cautioning about how junk science can be used to quash your gun rights.

Internationally, as war seems to be brewing in the Middle East, Democrat leader Sarsour the Hamas Louse blasts Israel for not just dying already, a potential showdown between PDT and Xi at the G-20, Macron's threat to form an army is a joke, Austria not too thrilled with the EU and PDT rejects the news about NorK deception on its nuke sites as fake news. Meanwhile, as if we didn't know that the UK now means "unmistakably Koranic," Italy has stepped up to the plate to offer Asia Bibi asylum from the medieval animals in Pakistain.

Domestically, more on the First Lady's open call for the ouster of a top NSC official, the President has tapped Neomi Rao to fill Brett Kavanaugh's seat on the DC Circuit (perhaps a dark horse [no pun] for the next SCOTUS vacancy?), thoughts on the national debt and paying it down, a custody dispute could be a motive in the slaying of 8 Ohioans, Congress is about to push this crime bill that looks to be a disaster as well as - yay bipartisanship! - yet another Obamacare "fix" which no doubt fixes nothing but high costs and other assorted tyranny in stone.

In Lysenkoism, Moonbeam is taking heat for vetoing a bill that could have helped mitigate the deadly destruction of this Camp wildfire, Obama was spectacularly wrong about energy policy (if he was right, it would've ruined his streak), and a cautionary tale of hijacking science for political ends. You know who else did that?

From hither and yon, Stan, Spike, Barbara, Shelia who can tell the difference? An excellent piece about Democrat-Socialist Jim Jones, a Dutch man uses transgender logic to identify as a 29-year-old and lastly Orson Welles' lost masterpiece makes its debut.

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

Trump May Replace Kirstjen Nielsen With Someone Whose Name I Don't Have to Look Up the Spelling of Every Time a Tough-on-Crime Border-Enforcer Who Once Called for Sanctuary Cities Officials to be Charged With Crimes

—Ace of Spades

Michael Walsh at PJMedia excerpts this from Politico:

Tapping Homan to run the Department of Homeland Security would almost certainly energize Trump’s base. The tough-talking lawman once recommended charging so-called sanctuary city politicians "with crimes" and has pugnaciously defended even Trump's most controversial immigration moves, including separating children from their parents at the border.

"Trump wants John Wayne on the border and Tom Homan is John Wayne," said a former Homeland Security official, who cited Homan’s frequent, and often fiery appearances on cable news as a part of his resume that Trump would especially like.

He once served as acting head of ICE, so Democrats will love him.

The problem, though, will be Senate confirmation -- I'm not sure if we're gonna come out of this with enough senators to beat the Margin of Cuck.

John Kasich: I STAND WITH FRANCE

—Ace of Spades

Of coruse, the Son of a Mailman (Had you heard?) John Kasich can't wait to march under a foreign flag.

French President Emmanuel Macron's thinly-veiled shots at President Trump over the weekend won at least one hearty American "oui" -- from Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Mr. Kasich, a frequent critic of Mr. Trump, took to Twitter to second Mr. Macron's attack on "nationalism" at a speech Sunday marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

"@EmmanuelMacron is right," Mr. Kasich tweeted, going on to quote what the French leader said in front of Mr. Trump, who has taken much criticism as racist for calling himself a "nationalist."


As Trump pointed out -- probably correctly -- Macron is probably trying to increase his pitiful 26% approval rating (71% disapproving) by picking a fight with a foreign leader even less popular in France than he is.

But that doesn't stop Katshit from moving quickly to endorse a foreign impotentate.

Seems like Katshit is running for the Bill Kristol's Last Remaining Donors primary.

Ahoy -- or as they say in French, ohe'.

Today Show Ratings Climb After Exit of MeAgain Kelly

—Ace of Spades

A thaw after the departure of the Ice Queen.

Since Kelly’s exit from the third hour of "Today," viewership in the key demographic favored by advertisers in that time period is up around 10%, according to Nielsen. And in each of the last three weeks, overall audience for the flagship first two hours of the NBC A.M. mainstay has been larger than that for its main rival, ABC's "Good Morning America" -- a testament to some of the big breaking news stories that have recently gripped the nation, including a recent shooting tragedy in Pittsburgh.

In more happy news about people I don't like, Starbucks will be laying off around 5% of its corporate workforce.

And Bob Woodward is deriding CNN's lawsuit.

"In the news media there has been an emotional reaction to Trump," Woodward said, later adding, "Too many people for Trump or against Trump have become emotionally unhinged about this."

"The remedy [isn't a lawsuit]," he argued. "It's more serious reporting about what he's doing."

...

Woodward has cautioned reporters covering the president in recent months, once telling The Atlantic that the American people "see the smugness" of some in the press and that "following the facts" without injecting feelings and opinions into reporting is one way to help regain trust of the public.

Surprise! "Man" Who Insulted Tucker Carlson's Daughter as a "Whore" and a "C**t" Is... On the Board of Directors of the "Women's Initiative"

—Ace of Spades

Who could have seen this coming.

The Women's Initiative refused to provide comment about Board of Directors member Juan Manuel Granados who allegedly attacked Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s daughter with vulgar language in a country club in October.

The women's group refused to respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation's multiple phone and email requests for comment, electing to remain silent following the allegations that Granados called Carlson‘s 19-year-old daughter a "whore" and a "f**king c**t" at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"Sorry, we don’t speak to reporters," said a Women’s Initiative employee who answered TheDCNF’s first phone call requesting comment about its position regarding Granados and the alleged incident. Elizabeth answered the phone next, saying only, "We're not offering comment." She then hung up on TheDCNF.

TheDCNF called a third time to ask if Granados's alleged actions comport with the group's values and if it intends to take action. "I can't speak to that, but we have no comment at this time," said Andrea who answered the third phone call.

WH Chief of Staff John Kelly, Deputy NSA Mira Ricardel, and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Might All Be Fired from Trump Administration

—Ace of Spades

Some of this has to do with feuding with... Melania Trump.

NBC:

"There have been instances where the East Wing staff were not treated as equals to the male-dominated decision makers in Chief Kelly’s office," one White House official said. "Promotions were denied then finally granted after months of requests," the official said.

Melania Trump raised concerns with her husband earlier this year, amid the height of the controversy over his alleged affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels, that Kelly had repeatedly denied her requests to promote some of her aides, two White House officials told NBC News.

The requests languished for months as Kelly insisted there weren’t enough available positions for the first lady’s aides to have senior titles, these people said. During this same period however, West Wing officials working for Kelly received promotions, the White House officials said.

Having learned of the dispute, the president was furious and told Kelly to give the first lady, who has a smaller East Wing staff than her recent predecessors, what she wanted, these people said. "I don't need this shit," Trump told Kelly, according to one person familiar with the conversation.

...


Kelly has also sparred with the East Wing over travel arrangements for the first lady's staff, people familiar with the issue said. He often wouldn't reserve space for Melania Trump's two aides on Air Force One or on helicopters. They would find themselves without hotel rooms and not listed for motorcade movements. The omissions have caused last-minute logistical issues that the first lady viewed as a slight, these people said.


Meanwhile, Mira Ricardel also drew the First Lady's ire:


One of the sources said that their dealings over the trip "didn't go well." The other source said that Melania Trump felt that Ricardel tried to short-change the first lady in terms of U.S. government resources allocated to support her Africa tour.

The sources did not elaborate on the clash over resources.

...

A source familiar with Ricardel's White House performance said Ricardel also ran afoul of much of the NSC staff and "sort of alienated everyone" except for Bolton, the veteran conservative foreign policy expert who has been Ricardel's immediate superior.

Melania isn't using the normal route of whispers and leaks to express her anger at Ricardel: she's publicly declaring she no longer deserves "the honor" of working at the White House:



Meanwhile, Trump is reportedly also looking to eject DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who is reported to be a close ally of John Kelly:

Kirstjen Nielsen, his secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, is potentially the next to go, multiple officials with knowledge of the matter said. Her departure could portend another high-profile exit: chief of staff John Kelly, Nielsen's top advocate in the administration.

Trump could ask Nielsen to resign in the coming days, multiple officials familiar with the matter predicted, describing the President's continued frustration at her handling of his signature issue: immigration and border security.

CNN Sues White House to Get Jim Accoster's Credentials Restored; Sarah Sanders Says Nah Brah

—Ace of Spades

How could women (both real and pretend) feel safe around this toxic male?

Sarah Sanders called the move "more grandstanding from CNN."

@JenniferJJacobs "Just more grandstanding from CNN, and we will vigorously defend against this lawsuit," @PressSec says. "CNN, who has nearly 50 additional hard pass holders, and Mr. Acosta is no more or less special than any other media outlet or reporter with respect to the 1st Amendment."

@JenniferJJacobs
"White House cannot run an orderly and fair press conference when a reporter acts this way, which is neither appropriate nor professional. The 1st Amendment is not served when a single reporter, of more than 150 present, attempts to monopolize the floor." -Sarah Huckabee Sanders

The judge assigned to this nuisance-suit isn't a liberal, which was CNN's only chance:

@chrisgeidner

Update: The CNN lawsuit against Trump has been assigned to Judge Timothy J. Kelly, a Trump appointee who was a former counsel to Chuck Grassley.

By the way: This AP story claims the gif of Acosta swiping away the woman's arm was "doctored," even though experts have debunked that. They'll lie and lie and lie to protect the Guild.

This video debunks another claim made in Accoster's defense: The bizarre claim that he did not push away the 105-pound young woman's arm, and maybe her arm just moved downwards on its own.

But if that were the case, why would Accoster's arm move downward with it? Was his arm magnetically attached to hers so that when her arm moved own, his arm moved down in sync with it?

More: Jim Accoster is a whiny little bitch.

German Organization Withdraws Human Rights Award from Womens March Due to Its Founders' and Leaders' Antisemitism

—Ace of Spades

You're just noticing this?

The think tank for the German social democratic party withdrew its Human Rights Award to the Women's March USA in Washington, DC, on Thursday because doctoral students associated with the foundation accused the organizers of the march of hardcore antisemitism and support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign targeting the Jewish state.

"We believe that the Women's March USA does not meet the criteria of this award, as its organizers have repeatedly attracted attention through antisemitic statements, the trivialization of antisemitism and the exclusion of Zionists and Jews since Women's March USA's establishment in 2017. Women's March USA does not constitute an inclusive alliance," wrote members of the scholarship working group, called Critique of Anti-Semitism and Jewish Studies, from the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in a public letter.

The foundation, which generates ideas and policies for the Social Democratic Party, a governing party in Chancellor Angela Merkel's coalition government, was slated to present its Human Rights Award to the Women's March USA on November 12. According to the foundation award's mission statement, it honors a "commitment to a strong, active and inclusive civil society."

..

The letter stated that "Since its inception in 2017, Women's March USA has attracted media attention due to the antisemitism of its board members and chair women. Linda Sarsour, a member of the board and former president of Women's March USA, is notorious for her propagation of antisemitism toward Israel. This transpired not only through her statement from March 2017 claiming that feminists could not be Zionists simultaneously and that Zionists were Nazis, but also through her demonization and delegitimization of Israel, as well as the application of a double standard. She also calls herself a 'very staunch supporter of the BDS movement.' These forms of antisemitism were also visible at the Berlin Women's March in January 2018. The organizers did not show any attempt of critique or disassociation."

In case you didn't hear, McSally has conceded to Sinema.



What a fighter.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

The vast majority of the news reports about this disgusting display of police overreaction focus not on the general (non-race-based) failure of policing in America, but on the race of the security guard who was shot and killed because he was doing his job. I don't have the details, and my impressions may be incorrect, but I doubt it. My guess is that the cops barrelled in, lights and sirens and running down puppies, and jumped out of their cars guns blazing. I do not believe that this poor guy was shot because he was Black; I think he was shot because the cops were out of control and didn't use what little cognitive ability they may have. "Oh look! Guy with gun! Let's shoot him!" Four other people were shot, and it doesn't sound like the bad guy was the one firing, so that means the cops shot five people. Impressive!

The problem now is that "this business is already out of control." Policing in America is broken, and I see no rational solutions being suggested by anybody. BLM wants cops out of Black neighborhoods, and that is moronic beyond belief. Ignoring the fact that most Blacks are not insane...they want the police around...that will not fix the problem. And Whites are killed by cops at approximately the same rates as Blacks, so it's a fallacious argument anyway. But reflexive support for the police is a very shortsighted reaction too. All it does is embolden the crooked or arrogant or power-mad cops who are the lawbreakers, and reinforces the status quo, which is unacceptable.

The thin blue line needs to be discredited, because policing as an occupation is nowhere near the most dangerous one in America. Besides, cops become cops with the understanding that it may get dangerous, and that they may need to go into harm's way. So why is their safety more important than ours? That security guard wanted to go home to his family at the end of his shift, just like the cops who killed him.

Cop fatally shoots security guard at bar in Chicago suburbs

A police officer gunned down an armed black security guard who tried to stop a shooting at a suburban Chicago bar, according to reports Monday.

The 26-year-old guard, Jemel Roberson, had restrained a thug involved in the shooting outside Manny’s Blue Room in Robbins, Ill., after gunfire broke out at 4 a.m. Sunday, according to local station Fox32.

But cops who rushed to the bar mistook the guard for “one of the bad guys,” witness Adam Harris told Fox32.

Maybe in rural America the cops know how to shoot, but in the cities and many of the suburbs they practice far less than many regular folk who go to the range a few times each month. NYPD officers requalify twice each year, and let us be generous and say that the skill required is nothing impressive. Sure, there are lots of cops who take it seriously and are probably fine combat shooters, but they seem to be in the minority. And it isn't just their skill (or lack thereof) with their weapons, it is their ability to evaluate the situation and decide to shoot or not to shoot that seems to be lacking.

But all of this is secondary to the larger issue: the police are not an occupying force; they are not our rulers; they are not all-powerful. They must be held accountable for their failures just like anyone else with a gun, and until that happens we will continue to have a rapidly growing divide between the cops and the rest of us.

A number of things popping all at once this morning including the continuing attempt by the Dems to steal the Florida election, the successful theft of the Arizona Senate seat, war brewing on the Islamic Shit-Hole/Israeli Border and the California wildfires. So, in the immortal words of my late mother's flaming colleague and future first principal of New York's Harvey Milk School, "lez-be-on our way."

First up, in Florida as the Dems attempt to seal the governorship and a Senate seat comes the news that corrupt Broward County election official Brenda Snipes "found ballots" in the 2012 election as well. Look on the bright side; she might have prevented two terms of Mitt Romney (that's only marginally sarcastic, all things considered). This is so bad that even Jeb Bush, the schmuck who hired this criminal in the first place, is calling for her to step down. Given the fact that Snipes is defying a court order to hand over all ballots and stop counting, the odds of her voluntarily stepping away with both a Senate seat and governorship to steal and all that that implies vis a vis the amassing of incredible political/institutional power for the Left, The good news is that at this stage I don't think that the Dems can overcome the deficits in either race with he inevitable recounts, automatic or hand. And that is why this meme of "count every vote!" is being shouted from the rooftops by the usual gang of momzers and miscreants. First, it implies that every vote was not counted in the first place since, after all, it resulted in Republicans winning (sarc). It also is a battle cry to count votes that in a sane world are totally ineligible - from non-citizens. As I snark in the headlines, I wonder if those truckloads of ballots didn't come from south of the border and filled out by Guatemalans and Hondurans. This whole thing is both disgusting and alarming at the same time. And in the midst of it all, this Andrew Gillum insect is howling about illegal voting by e-mail from the Florida panhandle who were displaced by last month's hurricane. Naturally, the vast majority are from Republican strongholds who are also, coincidentally, actual legal American citizens. This whole thing is a hot mess and already Gillum is pounding the pavement in the black communities whipping up the racism angle in case the swindle fails. Meanwhile over in Arizona, this raving whack-a-doodle Kyrsten Sinema is going to be the next Senator, as McSally has conceded. That "victory" too seems very suspect as well since from seemingly out of nowhere thousands of ballots from Maricopa County appeared out of nowhere to take her from several thousand votes down to 30,000 votes in the lead the next day. Wrapping this up, I hope that this is a giant alarm bell for 2020 since every battleground state and district is now going to be targeted for thievery by the Democrats. Bank on that. If I were the President and/or local and state GOP officials, I would be putting the screws to the Democrats; clean up the voter rolls and oust every crooked election official right now.

Segueing into politics (via the Deep State coup), despite Nancy Palsi's lies, the Dems are allegedly set to launch dozens of subpoenas and investigations in order to further hamper is agenda in the second half of his first term, and true to form the President is preemptively warning them that he is not going to take that lying down. Meanwhile, as Jerome Corsi intimates that he is going to be indicted by Mueller for the high crime of liking and supporting the President, Lindsey Graham, who is seemingly positioning himself as Trump's Frank Nitti, is blasting critics of Matthew Whitaker and the alleged impropriety/unconstitutionality of his hiring.

Meanwhile, the Dems are hoping to pull another Doug Jones deal in Mississippi, Daniel Greenfield on the internal struggle within the Democrat Party for control, what will happen during the lame duck session, the Waters crime family helps its own, a look at the word "nationalism" and son-of-a-postage-stamp, with a brain to match, naturally sides with the French to blast our own President (fuck you, Kasich), and a good essay on populism in terms of what we saw last Tuesday. On the Amnesty front, speaking of the lame duck session, the Koch Whores are going to do a full court press on DACA amnesty, the number of weekly illegal border jumpers is staggering yet gets no coverage for obvious reasons, and a look at the birthright citizenship controversy vis a vis Justice Kavanaugh. Lastly, there are reports that PDT may axe DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. Stay tuned.

In first amendment and fake news fakery, aside from flinging raw sewage at the Trump administration, the Dems are going all out for gun control and censorship on real Americans, how Matty Yglesias' revoting comments on the assault on Tucker Carlson's home are a good thing, why you haven't heard a word about the election of the first Korean woman to congress and Facebook is a friggin' menace.

Internationally, artillery and missile fire is being exchanged between the Israelis and the Gaza-tinians. Honestly, unless Israel unleashes a gigantic Rachel Corrie on that sewer, no matter what the reaction may be overseas, then this is not going to end. Couple of factors might be in play including the pressure on Iran internally thanks to Trump tightening the screws there and the Khashoggi affair which could help distance the Saudis from Israel (such as they may be cooperating openly or covertly). Of course the intentional media is standing by to fake images of Israeli soldiers butchering innocent Palestinian children. Meanwhile, China's Xi is leading the Communist Party's expansion of control internally as well as on American university campuses (I'm only semi-sarcastic there), and French Prime Minister Macron wants an army to defend France from Trump, or something. This while innocent people are shot, stabbed, thrown out of windows, tortured, run down and beheaded by people-other-than-American. A flash of sanity comes from Germany where even a far left NGO cancelled an award for the Women's March because it is infected with the Sarsour Joo-Hate.

Domestically, once again as a wildfire devastates California the usual gang of shysters and idiots blame "climate change" when in fact the culprit (if not deliberate arson) is the insane environmental policy of felling trees for firebreaks and controlled burns. Trump is 100% right about this and the Left is reacting predictably. Elsewhere, the Vatican is putting the kibosh on an American Bishop's reform plan, the cops shoot the wrong guy, a Christian student in Berkeley (really?) is being pressured for wrong-think, Jimmy Kimmel invites Borat on to be a pig, and an optimistic assessment of the trajectory of Democratic/demographic inevitably. The author thinks it's not going to happen. His mouth to G-d's ears, but I fear that that situation is very much in doubt.

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

Open Thread (Plus: The Press Has Always Been Rotten Cowards)

—Ace of Spades

Here's a fun story about the bravery of the press.

Napoleon was exiled to Elba as a treaty provision after having lost the war to pretty much every other country in Europe.

A lot of French still revered him, but many were glad to see him go. He had, after all, declared himself Emperor, which was a complete repudiation of the ideas of the Revolution.

The Bourbon dynasty, which was installed to replace him, of course enforced the official state line that he was a monster.

So back to the press: Here are the Paris press' headlines, from the moment they hear that Napoleon has violated his treaty terms and escaped from Elba, to when he lands on French soil, to when he begins gathering his old loyalists (grognards), to when he is within a few days' march of Paris, to when he actually arrives.

Napoleon's march on Paris as reported via newspaper headlines (1831)

As published in The Museum of Foreign Literature, Science, and Art, Volume XVIII

The French newspapers which, in 1815, were subject to the censor, announced the departure of Bonaparte from Elba, his progress through France, and his entry into Paris in the following ingenious manner:

-- 9th March, the Anthropophagus [literally "Man-eater"] has quitted his den

-- 10th, the Corsican Ogre has landed at Cape Juan

-- 11th, the Tiger has arrived at Gap

-- 12th, the Monster slept at Grenoble

-- 13th, the Tyrant has passed through Lyons

-- 14th, the Usurper is directing his steps towards Dijon, but the brave and loyal Burgundians have risen en masse and surrounded him on all sides

-- 18th, Bonaparte is only sixty leagues from the capital; he has been fortunate enough to escape the hands of his pursuers

-- 19th, Bonaparte is advancing with rapid steps, but he will never enter Paris

-- 20th, Napoleon will, tomorrow, be under our ramparts

— 21st, the Emperor is at Fontainbleau

-- 22nd, His Imperial and Royal Majesty, yesterday evening, arrived at the Tuileries, amidst the joyful acclamations of his devoted and faithful subjects.

I don't know if this is the same thing, really, but here's some changing-of-a-tune from a CNN "analyst:"

Another Blow-Off Post

—Ace of Spades



Definitely read the article, it's funny.

Hey, anyone remember Rick Wilson, who pretended to be Mr. Big Swingin' Dick of Florida Republican Politics?

And who didn't say a blessed word in the gubernatorial race, which featured a Marxist under FBI investigation for corruption as the Democrat candidate? Mr. Florida Republican just couldn't be bothered?

Well, now there's an effort to overturn the election through vote fraud, and guess who's still quiet as a mouse?

Maryland Cops Descend on Man's Homes to Confiscate His Guns Under New "Red Flag" Law; When Man Scuffles to Keep Possession of Guns, He's Shot Dead

—Ace of Spades

Wonderful.

It seems like a member of his family filed the "red flag" complaint, so it's possible this guy was behaving strangely or threateningly enough to justify some kind of an intervention.

He also seems to have opened the door with a gun in hand, which is legal, but also seems provocative.

This doesn't bode well for "red flag" laws going forward.

Two police officers ordered to remove firearms from a house on a "red flag" protective order fatally shot an armed man Monday morning in Ferndale, Maryland, police said. Anne Arundel County Police arrived at the house at 5:17 a.m. to remove guns from the home under a new law that temporarily allows for the seizure of firearms if a person shows "red flags" that they are a danger to themselves or others, CBS Baltimore reports.

A man, later identified by police as 61-year-old Gary Willis, answered his door with a gun in his hand, Anne Arundel County Police Sgt. Jacklyn Davis said.

Sgt. Davis said the man put the gun down. But then, according to a police press release, Willis "became irate" when officers attempted to serve the order. Willis picked the weapon up again, "a fight ensued over the gun," and a shot was fired, Davis said. The first shot didn't strike anyone, but the officers then fatally shot the man, Sgt. Davis said.

Neither of the officers were injured. Their names weren't released.

It wasn't clear why the "red flag" order was issued. A spokeswoman for the Maryland Judiciary denied a request from the Baltimore Sun to release protection order requests associated with the home, citing the law which states the orders are confidential unless a court rules otherwise.

Michele Willis, the man's niece, told The Baltimore Sun that one of her aunts requested the protective order against Willis, but she declined to say why.

What a Shock: PayPal Has Cut Off Yet Another Competitor to Tech Monopoly Platforms
Is this all just a coincidence or are tech giants acting in concert to destroy all possible competitors? Bitchute was terminated by PayPal, one assumes, for failing to be heavy-handed with censorship like YouTube is now; but when YouTube itself was less heavy-handed, PayPal didn't attempt to deplatform YouTube. Twitter, too, used to be less heavy-handed, and yet there were no companies working to deplatform them.
One begins to see a pattern that goes like this: the established tech giants establish a censorship guideline, which is taken by other companies, for no good reason, to be the required censorship guideline. Then anyone not conforming to the established tech giants' current censorship policies (and remember, these change all the time) are deplatformed by other tech giants.
You can't say you're not acting in concert when you take Twitter's or YouTube's rules of the day (which can and do change) and then use that as your justification to exclude all competitors to YouTube and Twitter. You're just using their censorship-policies-of-the-month to justify always acting in YouTube's and Twitter's interest. You're just using their censorship policies as cover for eliminating their competitors.
When YouTube and Twitter decide "No conservative speakers at all," will PayPal, MasterCard, and the rest then begin denying services to a conservative competitor start-up?
We need congressional investigations into this, but it won't happen: The Democrats are all-in on censorship and harassing conservatives out of public life (including their jobs), and too many Republicans are simply paid off by Big Tech.

(They won't let us secede, of course: they mean to "correct" us, preferably as against our will as possible, to increase the pain.)

S.E. Cupp: I Don't Think We Should Be Dunking on My CNN Colleague Michael Avenatti
What a Company Gal! Even Brian Stelter is embarrassed at what a shill she is for CNN. She is the walking embodiment of the Corporate Line. I'll give S.E. Cupp one thing: When you buy her, you own her for life.
By the way, read the replies to get a sense of Cupp's Dumb-Bunny fanclub -- a bunch of conspiratorial lunatics who think this is "all a set-up" arranged by a guy from Gateway Pundit and who have a bad case of lunatic loser hero worship, proclaiming that Michael Avenatti is "too smart for this." So that's Cupp's new demo, and she got it by saying deeply stupid things that made professional rageaholic and propagandist Jeff Zucker smile.

John Sexton Called It: CNN Refused to Run the Story Until They Had the Full Lawyered-Over Bullshit Denial from Their Virtual Permanent Guest Michael "Smack My Bitch Up" Avenatti
CNN Lied in its very headline, claiming this was "Breaking" news when they reported it. No, CNN, it was breaking hours ago. Everyone else had reported it by the time you got your pal's statement. Which turned out to be a not-very-unexpected "I'm like totally innocent and I expect to be fully exonerated or whatever" canned statement. So newsworthy!
I wonder if Chris Cuomo will break out the "Not all punches are bad" defense he used for antifa to cover for his pal Avenatti.

I just got an email: "I like this Avenatti's style. Real ship-shape and squared-away. Do you think he'd like to see a Phil Collins concert with me?" It's from a guy named Patrick Bateman. I don't know him. But pass on the message if you see Slappy.
