The night of the "No Womenz Day" protests, some pink-shirts malcontents came to my property and vandalized the "PRAY FOR" sign. I found it the next morning laying on the ground, at first, thought the strong wind had blown it over.

Got it cleaned up a bit, painting over the blue letters and outlining the red in white paint. Here's the end result:

Pink-shirts delenda est !

Yes, there was a tweet this morning on the @realDonaldTrump site, plus two on his POTUS account, one of which duplicated his private account and one for referencing his weekly address.

Repeat tweet for those who missed it:

Sandy,

Near the subdivision where I used to live there was a railroad trestle. It was a great temptation for graffiti makersto paint stuff on it, as it was visible to lots of people as it crossed a road which was heavily used by commuters.

I was so impressed that the graffiti would disappear so quickly. I thought it was the railroad covering it, but no!

It was one of my neighbors, a guy who had to pass under it every day as he headed to work out at the airport. He said he got so mad at seeing that that he bought metallic paint and every time he saw it he would overpaint it, often at night.

It became hi hobby. He said he got a charge out of thinking those vandals would come by to show off their work only it was disappeared!

Some Brit writing in the weekend WSJ is panning Trump's wall-building effort because--I'm not making this up--a wall will just allow human smugglers to charge higher fees. PID. (Or as narc has put it: parody isn't dead as much as it's gone into zombie state...)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Also, as a side note, it looks like Kucinich was trying to stop the unjustified Libyan War, which now seems to have been done mostly to make Hillary look like a potential C-in-C. Also, there is talk that Ghadaffi was going to set up an independent bank.

Never saw the appeal myself. He used to come on sometimes at a coffee shop I went to that played NPR. Humor's largely subjective, I suppose, but his always just seemed dopey to me.

MM: "I don't like people who are snobbish and mock the places and people they came from."

I actually have two dear friends in two different cities who serve of the national board of a group I will not name that serves to honor the history of our American ancestors. Now the friend from a city in the Northeast has no problems. But the friend from the South is surrounded by peers who think they are just as blue blood as you could ever imagine and act accordingly.

After putting up with that attitude for a time, my friend went on Amazon and sent each of the culprits this book for them to read:

FOX reported last hour a breaking story of an intruder captured on the White House grounds. Here's the Daily New's take: Intruder arrested on White House grounds while President Trump was at the residence

Secret Service officers on Friday discovered the intruder by the south entrance of the executive home not long after he arrived, CNN reported. Officials told the news station he scaled the the outer perimieter fence by the Treasury Building and East Executive Avenue around 11:30 p.m.

Dan Bongino called in to the FOX Program and said White House Security is woefully inadequate and has been so for years.

Momto2

I don't know if this was posted before (catching up on last thread) but what in the world is going on in India?

A missionary family from out church has lived there for years (children are dual citizens) and are being told to leave. They are appealing but only have days to clear out if it fails which seems likely.

They have worked with girls who have been sold into sexual slavery and are helping them recover and find opportunities to support themselves.

Now Compassion International is being kicked out. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/07/world/asia/compassion-international-christian-charity-closing-india.html?smid=fb-share

daddy

Lyle, did you ask that Brit about Hadrian?

Ha! Beautiful comment OL!

Old Lurker

And they wondered why Trump kept his own personal security...

Yet another sign of the competence of government run institutions, huh.

Momto2

daddy - that intruder on WH property - 12:50 is totally unacceptable!

The level of hatred that exists for our President means security needs to be tighter than ever before. Who's job is it to monitor the fence? Were they hold overs from the O. admin.? I sincerely hope someone is fired over this!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Old Lurker,

I once bought my dad (who was a great self-taught cook) a joke cookbook called"White Trash Cooking." It had a lot of down-home recipes like fried carfish and such, but what I really bought it for was the hilarious shot of the interior of a refrigerator, because it looked exactly like my dad's ( who did almost all the cooking once he retired).

It included these things:

Velveeta cheese
a roll of cornmeal mush
cucumbers and onions in a glass bowl
homemade jelly (I used to help with this project)
butcher shop bacon wrapped in paper
Tabasco sauce
Worcestershire sauce
etc.

Anyway, he got a great kick out of it and even used some of the recipes.

Senator James Webb wrote a great book about the Scots-Irish in America. He is very sensitive about how they (hiim being one of them) have always been looked down on and marginalized. Very interesting book, even if Webb is a bit batty.

daddy

what in the world is going on in India?

Beats me Momto2, but this is probably the reason for the NYTimes story:

More than 11,000 nongovernmental organizations have lost their licenses to accept foreign funds since Prime Minister Narendra Modi took office in 2014. Major Western funders — among them George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and the National Endowment for Democracy — have been barred from transferring funds without permission from Indian security officials.

I can't conceive of Soros ever doing anything for the benefit of anyone other than himself.

Old Lurker

You might enjoy the one I posted, MM. Far from a joke, it is a quite serious study of our roots.

Threadkiller

Sources say that when it was discovered that the intruder had no identification a senior Secret Service agent said to him, "if you really wanted the Whitehouse Xerox Multitask Workcenter, Barack, you could have just asked for it."

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Why did CNN get the scoop on this? Was the guy a Deep State agent?

I am suspicious of everyone these days.

I toured the White House in 2008 while Bush was still president. There were gobs of security people, including snipers (ran into one just coming off the roof at end of shift, all in black with a very scary looking rifle).

What has happened to the Secret Service? If I were Melania I would tell Preisdent Trump in no uncertain circumstances that he needs to get to Mar-a-Lago until they get that place secure!

Why don't they have cameras that can be monitored? Why aren't dogs roaming the grounds? Why isn't that fence electrified at night?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Momto2,

There is a rise in Hindu nationalism in India. The current leader was elected on a center-right platform but there is fear that the far right Hindu nationalists have gotten too much influence.

http://www.worldpolicy.org/blog/2015/02/20/modis-position-hindu-nationalism

I have a feeling that this may be tied into a feeling of religious superiority which apparently is heavily entwined with the Indian culture.

Caveat: I am by no means an expert on this. I saw some stuff about Modi last year and your post reminded me about it so I went looking for information.

The Uniformed division of the Secret Service, and if memory serves, the US Park Police ... there were a few serious breaches during the Obama Administration as well.

narciso

I told you who was in charge of secret service at dhs, Doncha now.

Old Lurker

Not like it's not the first SS crisis or WH intruder in the last five years, huh?

Herein lies the difference between real jobs and government jobs.

Way back in the day I worked for a gazillionaire who owned a bunch of companies and as a fresh new MBA of course I was interested in rising as far and fast as I could.

My direct boss was president of one of the many subsidiaries owned by the big boss, and he was an A#1 jerk who among other sins thought he was actually in control of the company he ran..which among other things owned a real fancy apartment building in town. One happy day I came to work to the news that my Jerk Boss had been fired and was off the premises already. Then the big boss sent for me...

Checking my hair and the neatness of my suit, I went to see him. He explained that he had made some changes and that effective immediately I would be president of that company. Score! was my first thought, followed by my second when I asked "If I might, sir, could I ask what prompted this?"

He went on to explain that he had been approached at his club by another member who commented that he lived in the subject building and had been offended by my former boss.

Hence his firing and my promotion.

Now while coddling a tenant in a building might seem beneath many when there are so many other "important" things that have to be done...several years later when I met and married Mrs. OL, one of the nicest gifts we received was from the wife of that guy who complained about my predecessor.

The wind bag point I make is that the current head of the SS was given that job largely because another intruder had jumped the fence and made it to the door of the WH when Obama lived there. While there might be 100 items on his to-do list, doncha think not letting another jumper in would be job 1?

Someone mentioned yesterday that if you modify "justice" with an adjective (social justice, racial justice, etc.), you get something that's not justice.

I noticed when reading about that EPA Official who just resigned, Mustafa Ali, he first worked for the EPA's Environmental Equity Office before they got the name changed to the Environmental Justice Office.

He helped found the environmental justice office, then the environmental equity office, in 1992, during the presidency of President George H.W. Bush.

Or maybe it was first the Environmental Justice Office and then they renamed it the Environmental Equity Office.

Whatever.

Mustafa Ali: “I feel that it’s best if I take my talents elsewhere,” Inside Climate News reported.

Looks like he's in luck, as The WaPo reports he has found new employment: Ali has taken a job as senior vice president at the Hip Hop Caucus, a nonprofit civil and human rights group that tries to foster grass-roots activism among younger Americans through hip-hop music and cultural events.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clarice,

This is an odd thing. I am certain I saw Preet say (in the lobby of Trump Tower) that he had been asked to stay.

So, was Preet LYING? Why was he there if Trump hadn't wanted him to stay on, since it would be very odd to have a special meeting to tell him he was going to be let go like all of the other political appointees?

You would have to be really brazen to show up and lie about something like that, so that doesn't make sense.

Zerohedge says something has changed, but what?

Very strange grandstanding, but since he used to work for Schumer, he obviously isn't quite the non-partisan type his publicity touts.

Old Lurker

He might have been asked that then MM, but I read somewhere in the last several days that he had offered words of support to those state AG's who had filed suit on Trump's EOv2.0.

If true, that is all it should take to have Trump dump him.

Old Lurker

Of course he was dead to me at "former GC for Chuck Schumer..."

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Old Lurker,

That makes sense. I don't see why he wants to be fired, though.

I am all for firing insubordinate attorneys. If firing Sally Yates didn't cause much of a stir, I can's see why firing Preet would do so.

narciso

Perhaps then again it's based on unamed sources so it could be anything.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Man Tran,

One thing I have noticed in the old regency romance books written by Georgette Heyer (herself English), is that the aristocracy, particularly the men, are portrayed with aquiline noses, and usually dark eyes and hair - what I think may be a lingering memory of the Norman French, who took over the landed estates from the Anglo Saxons after the Conquest.

In her books the middle class (trade and merchants) are often portrayed as blondes with snub noses (the ditzy blonde character types or the Fezziwig merchant figures).

It's fascinating to think about, isn't it?

I particularly like Chapters 13 and 32.

It is mostly myth that shipwrecked sailors from the Spanish Armada contributed much to the gene pool of Ireland. They were largely slaughtered, by the English. However, there is only one instance of the 'killing of Spanish castaways by Irish not directly in English pay, and it aroused general reprobation.' The Irish helped them, and helped them escape, which a few hundred did, mostly to Scotland. Those who escaped thought they'd left few of their own behind.

Judicial Watch has up a story up and a second link detailing the wasted money that the EPA's Environmental Justice Department has thrown away to idiotic causes: Axing Wasteful EPA Program that Gave Leftist Groups Millions “Racist”

The Trump administration is being accused of racism for cutting a wasteful program that’s given leftist groups tens of millions of dollars to help poor, minority and indigenous communities attain “environmental justice.”

Here's the 2nd Link: Corruption Chronicles which includes this outrage: The government agency that’s wasted millions to bring minority communities in the U.S. “environmental justice” announced this month that it’s spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund projects in Mexico. It marks the latest of many controversial foreign allocations for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an agency that’s been on a manic spending spree during most of the Obama administration.

My guess is that Mustafa Ali was dumping funds into The Hip Hop Causus that wound up giving him job. If so, nice racket he had going there.

WSJ:

Preet Bharara, the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, said he was fired from his position as the Manhattan U.S. attorney, after he defied a request by the Justice Department for the remaining Barack Obama-appointed U.S. attorneys to resign.

I love how when I was young, I was a victim of the media's obsession with my generation, a division between it and my parents' ("Don't trust anyone over 30") constantly pushed in popular media, from Time Magazine to movies like "The Graduate."

Now that I am old, the division starts up again, also fueled by the media, who now portrays us as the destroyers of civilization, while in our youth we were portrayed as enlightened.

Neither, of course, is true. It's simply a ginned-up generational animosity caused by the media. I first noticed it on Ace of Spades about the beginning of the Obama regime. The Left does love its "divide and conquer" strategy.

La voici la heureuse journee.

Chapter 13 is about Coutras, and 32 about the end of a tall man, the Duke of Guise, engineered by Henry the Third.

Boomers just started going on medicare (1946-1964), only up-to 1950 on medicare right now.

They grew in an America in charge of the entire world, economically growing for everybody, with strong religious and civic institutions.

What did they do with that? They let all the middle class jobs disappear, weakened both religious and civic institutions. (both from right and left: see charles murray from right, or Putnam from left). Stopped economic growth for most people. Left disastours american infastructure after handed everything. Hyper-polarized Washington.

The 2008/9 bank bailout -- is the proto-typical boomer event. Completely morally bankrupt. Its not limmited to finance, its corrupted every american insitution boomers run. Everything. Just not as visible.

American in gradual decline starting probably at end of clinton years -- and now getting an extra speedy push from Trump.

Literally grew up with American on top -- took charge -- and are going to leave us in ruins.

Thanks guys! Bipartisan.
