Terrible news for Hillary;
Jill Stein Promises to Pardon Snowden and Appoint Him to Her Cabinet.

You carefully court the traitor vote by exposing vital intelligence to enemy hackers and the next thing you know some dumb, commie, Jew broad is offering to put a real traitor in charge of national security.
Poor Hill, can't win for losin'.

Apropos of nothing, I'm kinda liking Ace's sobriquet of the Dem nominee: Beefy Elderly Drunken Crazylady.

When a newspaper story says "transgender woman" does that mean it's someone born a man who has lopped off his privates to be come a "woman," or someone born a woman who gets a man's privates grafted onto her? Or is it someone who just feels like being the opposite sex? In this case it seems to be the latter. My guess is there's no rhyme or reason to the usage, and this "woman" is as much a "woman" as I am. (No snarky comments, please.)

you're a brave "man" jimmyk:)

Catching up, also wanted to comment, perhaps obviously, on this from the last thread:

From the WaPo:

few people privately will make the case that Donald Trump is qualified or temperamentally suitable to be commander in chief

Could anyone honestly make the case that Hillary is qualified temperamentally, ethically, or any other way qualified or suitable?

And why "privately"? This idiot is suggesting that (wink, wink) regardless of people's public support of Trump, no one seriously thinks he's qualified. It's more likely the opposite: In the privacy of the voting booth millions have declared him not only fit, but their preferred candidate, while the enormous abuse heaped on anyone who publicly supports him no doubt has inhibited people from public proclamations.

Frau Tee oder Kaffee?

lyle - one guy's wide stance is another fella's manspreading.


Porchlight

jimmyk, I have trouble keeping it straight, but I'm pretty sure "transgender woman" means born-man-now-woman and "transgender man" means born-woman-now-man.

In other words the person's current identity is the one mentioned in the phrase.

lyle

Way to man up, jimmyk. 😎

Porchlight

Darn it, I didn't even answer the question you asked.

My understanding from SJW observation is that it doesn't matter whether or not the person has had surgery. If they identify as female and are still in full possession of male sporting equipment, they are female. Such as Caitlyn Jenner.

It's all about the feels.

Lurker Susie

A trans woman (sometimes trans-woman or transwoman) is a transgender person who was assigned male at birth but whose gender identity is that of a woman. The label of transgender woman is not always interchangeable with that of transsexual woman, although the two labels are often used in this manner. Transgender is an umbrella term that includes different types of gender variant people (including transsexual people).

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Yeah, but transgender can be either pre-op, post-op or like apparently many of them never-will-op.

Sue

A military coup happening in Turkey? Not sure what is going on.

lyle

Huh. I thought it had something to do with heels.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Hey, the movie Bengazi will be on TCM in a little while.

Victor McLaglen is playing the part of Hillary.

lyle

never-will-op

Or do-wop.

(Maybe I should take a nap...) 😀

Porchlight

I thought "transsexual" was now an archaic term as we must use "gender" now at all times ("sex" being too binary or something).

It used to be that "transgender" was identifying as opposite gender, regardless of whether surgery had taken place, and "transsexual" was if you actually had the surgery.

But I think it's all "transgender" now and if you actually went and had the surgery that doesn't make you any more special than Joe Blow who decides to put on a dress and wander into the Target dressing room for the day.

I really hate being lectured on "American values" by some narcissistic, anti-American, anti-Western, anti-capitalist, anti-Semitic, jihadi-apologizing Marxist-Socialist who grew up in remote Hawaii and Sunni Muslim Indonesia, who was weaned by an atheist mother and Communist pal Frank Marshall Davis, and whose Chicago buddies were domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

Privately a lot of people know how outrageously crooked, phony, dishonest, sick and dangerous Hillary! is but do not dare voice this in public.

Ah, here's a little good news from Mr. Porchlight Sr. My folks are in the well-heeled western Mpls suburbs. Verrry blue. Lookie what popped up next to the local liquor store about three miles west of their house:

You bet I'm going straight there when I arrive in a couple of weeks.

Miss Marple 2

So, I head up to take granddaughter to work, and by the time I get home there's a coup attempt in Turkey.

These Friday news days are something, aren't they?

Hostages at Turkish military Hq in Ankara, but according to Fox Erdogan is safe.

All flights stopped. Low flying planes over capital.

Before they were pre-emptied by Turkey's military hijinx, the BLM peeps had a national "Day of Rage" planned for this evening.

Question: who had enough popcorn for today?

Sandy Daze

Watching Gorda on Fox Business.

Useful comments.

I want the military to succeed, Erdogan to fall.

Miss Marple 2

Isn't the military in Turkey sworn to uphold the secular government originally established by Attaturk?

I am sorry if this is wrong information and a stupid question, but I am on information overload on Middle Eastern governments.

I agreed on the other thread and I do on this one as well.
Obama is t like us.
He doesn't share our religious or American values.
So when he says that is not who we are.
We are not him.
He is foreign to me.
I cannot relate to him as a fellow American.

I saw that info about Brady earlier.
It will give Grappo a chance.
However just the typical Browns luck.
He will be able to play against us in the fifth week.

Erdogan has been a pita, and worse, much worse. Military back in power would be stabilizing force for good, a push back against increasingly islamized Turkey, and a wall against ISIS, which Erdogan supported.

henry

Twitter has Turkish Intel saying the coup is being suppressed -- near over. They have their own Bagdad Bob?

Miss Marple 2

Sandy,

So, we should root for the coup, just like Sisi in Egypt.

It is a pretty sad state of affairs when I am forced to root for military coups.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

If they truly give that bastard Erdogan the boot that is not only the best news this year, what will our poor little Islamist in Chief do?
Cry in his wadded panties?

daddy on iPhone

Top of the hour CBS radio news already in protect Obama mode, simply playing sound bites of him saying we must stay true to our values of Freedom and Diversity. That is followed by an impassioned sound bite of Reverand Al saying it is wicked to want the Presidents Birth Certificate but not wanting an ID to buy a gun

Daddy, did the Rev Al say where you can buy a gun without ID? For a friend.

This lake I've been coming to for six decades is less than ten miles from the National Guard training facility used by Michigan, and at least parts of Indiana and Ohio too.

So I grew up hearing artillery rattle the windows as a routine part of the best days of my life, and regarded the bombers flying overhead as security.

Things got very quiet since 1992 or so. Rarely even saw anybody in uniform in town any more.


There have been more planes drilling in the past two weeks than the past two decades though.

Just sayin.'

daddy on iPhone

Wickedness should be made of firmer stuff. Wickedness is driving a Mack truck into 220 innocents. That's wickedness. And Wickedness is the President standing up and refusing to say that Islam is the cause and the source of that wickedness, while doing everything possible to smear good people who do correctly point out that the source of that wickedness is Islam. That's what wicked is.

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

The news out of Ankara sounds very hopeful.

Erdogan was probably grabbed by the army's special forces while he was attending 'services' at his usual Friday afternoon mosque.

The tanks and troops sealing off the airports, the bridges, the ferry terminals, etc. sure make it sound as if the military was successful.

The only fly in the ointment is the news that Erdogan has been absent for the past six days - that doesn't sound like a coup that was attempted this afternoon.

A successful coup would be the best news possible wrt the war on terror and ISIS.
Keeping my fingers crossed - but it surely appears as if the military has already succeeded.

Comey may have settled on his legacy, but the only people who actually seem interested in exposing the truth are still in business: Lawyers seek to block Clinton testimony in email case. I've already given Judicial Watch some money, but at this point I'm thinking it might be worth sending them a monthly stipend, since Congress & DoJ sure don't seem to want the job.

I hear reports Erdogan is loose in the mountains somewhere. All third hand.

http://pix11.com/2016/07/13/transgender-woman-accused-of-videotaping-18-year-old-in-target-fitting-room/

The title of the article should be - "Man in a dress accused of videotaping 18-year-old in Target fitting room"
He is a man, not a woman. It is ridiculous that "news" organizations play along with the Dem/Progressive agenda by calling this man "she".
Putting on a dress does not make a man a woman.
How insulting to women to even think that. Shame on our "news" media for going along with this craziness.

FTA - "According to the affidavit, Smith told the detective “she finds the video sexually gratifying” and when the deputy looked at the camera roll on Smith’s iPhone, he “observed a video of a young adult female undressing in a changing room at what appear to be Target. The defendant admitted to me that this video was recorded at Target.”

So he is a heterosexual man.

Miss Marple 2

General Flynn on The Five now.

First talking about terror fight, which seems like a repeat of what he said last night.

Guilfoyle asks about how to improve intelligence. He says we have to figure out new ways to operate, dismisses Hillary's intelligence surge as "What? We haven't been doing that already?"

Is Kerry in Turkey and if so has he.been taken prisoner also? I ask because back in 82 or 83 when the Guatemala Coup went down, they planned it for when the President would have been meeting with the Americans. With Kerry who is somewhere over there I think, they would know when and where Erdogan might be meeting. Just wondering. Lot to learn later

MSNBC is reporting Erdogan has fled to Germany.

Of course.

One more link "on topic" that I put up on FB
The video at this link is too sad & pitiful. It is alarming that our society is so fallen that we can't even tell this sick man THE TRUTH.

It is disgraceful that the "news" media participate in this agenda by referring to Sean Smith as "she". Sean Patrick Smith is a man.
He needs help, not lies that validate his delusions.
The video at the link is very sad.
It made me mindful of these Biblical truths:
*God created you - Psalm 139:13-16
*God knows you - Psalm 139:1-4, Romans 3:23
*God loves you - Romans 5:8, John 3:16
*God will help you - Psalm 86:5-7, Psalm 91:14-16, Acts 16:30,31
That is true for Sean Smith, it is true for me, & it is true for every individual.
