Whenever my knee pain gets bad, I take a glucosamine-chondroitin combination. (The brand I use is MoveFree). I take it for a month or so and my knees stop hurting. I usually don't have to take it again for a couple of years.

Covfefe means winning bigly.

So the mayor of Londonistan wants to enforce his own sharia on Trump. How very pathetic. "Nothing to see here, move along".

I was thinking back to the days when the Brits really knew how to deal with terrorists in Northern Ireland. It seems that they have lost their appetite for it.

In 1984 after the Brighton bombing, the IRA said "Today we were unlucky, but remember we only have to be lucky once. You will have to be lucky always".

There is truth in that statement, but there is no excuse for sloppy intelligence work or any form of political correctness. Boston, London, Berlin, Manchester, San Bernardino; we should have seen them coming.

And no apologies, no consequences for the people who screwed up. Where are the Muslim patriots infiltrating the hate mosques? Hell, why didn't the police follow up on the citizen reports on the Manchester and London terrorists?

And why is the media silent?

Anyway, back to Reality. I wonder if her lib social media presence is too pat. The Air Force isn't famous for producing traitors; I guess it's too out there to wonder if she's an exposed good guy that the IC has disposed of?

Or maybe there's a new rift between the Intercept and Assange, and that's somehow a factor. Or maybe it's a little odd that MeAgain's interview with Putin is followed up by this story on the next business day. I dunno.

I think it was JimNorCal who was looking for summer reading for an incoming 7th grader. Well Frederick's school just published their summer reading list. Here are the books recommended for incoming 7th graders:

No, it's just that the man who boasted about finger-raping multiple women, holding them down and inserting his index into their vaginal cavities as they screamed and begged for help is deemed a bit of a scumbag amongst more morally superior nations.

A favorite family photo is my entire family in @1962 all sitting on camels in front of the Pyramids and the Sphinx, and wearing Arab headdresses to boot. I was the littlest so I'm propped up in front of Pop on his camel. We are surrounded by white robed Arab Tour Guides leading each camel. No telling how much Tourist business has been lost since the Luxor Tourist massacres of 30 years ago.

I specifically noticed on my Paris trip last month, while sitting on my regular cafe stool at my regular table just across from Notre Dame Cathedral, how reduced the tourism numbers seemed to be, and especially so as it was in such spectacular weather. The heavily armed Gendarmes and para-military guys were as prevalent as they have been in the the last few years, but the crowds sure seemed seriously diminished to my untrained eye.

Hey, @nytimes, I'm sure humanitarian aid workers in the Mideast appreciate the target you just put on their backs.
Aid Coordinator in Yemen Had Secret Job Overseeing U.S. Military Shipments
nytimes.com

WASHINGTON — An American kidnapped two years ago in Yemen while helping coordinate aid for Unicef and the Red Cross also had a second, secret role: He was shipping materials for elite military commandos under a clandestine contract his employer had with the Pentagon. The arrangement with Special Operations forces has never been made public.

The former hostage, Scott Darden, was the Yemen country director for Transoceanic Development, a New Orleans-based logistics company that specializes in transporting cargo to the world’s most dangerous hot spots. It belongs to a small group of firms that provide humanitarian aid to famine-stricken women and children at the same time that they help set up safe houses and supply networks for the military’s secret kill-or-capture commando units.

Mr. Darden’s work offers a rare look into the shadowy world of military contractors that operate in lawless war zones like Yemen, Somalia and Libya. But arrangements like the one Transoceanic had with Special Operations forces can cast suspicion over aid workers, potentially putting them in harm’s way, and can jeopardize humanitarian efforts in countries that depend on relief organizations.

One congressional aide, just 16, told of being propositioned by Kennedy from the back seat of his limousine in Capitol Hill. She testified that he leaned from the window, waved a wine bottle and asked whether she or a friend she was with wanted to join him.

He reeked of drink by nine in the morning and could be relied on to be bawling drunk at four in the afternoon. In Washington's top La Brasserie restaurant, he once threw a waitress over a table in a private room and tried to have sex with her. LUN

Whether it turns out to be “Comey Week” or “Rogers Week” or something else entirely, the story of the 2016 election keeps getting more unfriendly to its presidential victor. It would be ironic if the 45th president turned out to be a stone loser in the slow unveiling of what actually happened.

A Response to My Conservative Critics About Trump
Dennis Prager | June 06, 2017
facebook

twitter

A Response to My Conservative Critics About Trump
Writers never know when something they write will strike a nerve -- or, in the common phrase of the internet, "go viral."
Yet my last column, "Why Conservatives Still Attack Trump" did both. Aside from being reprinted on almost every conservative website, Newsweek published the column, and The New York Times quoted it.


More importantly, many major conservative writers responded to it, mostly in disagreement.

It is interesting that the column elicited so much attention. Maybe, like the man who bit the dog, an articulate case by a mainstream conservative in support of the president is so rare that people felt a need to publish it and respond to it.

Whatever the reason, I feel compelled to respond to some of the disagreements.

SEE ALSO
At Least One Democrat Is a Fan of Extreme Vetting
Before doing so, I want to note the respectful tone that permeated virtually every one of the disagreeing columns. We have enough cannibals on the left without conservatives eating each other up.

After reading the responses, I feel confident in saying that they confirmed my primary thesis: Anti-Trump conservatives do not believe that Americans are fighting what I call the Second Civil War, while pro-Trump conservatives do.

Indeed, Jonah Goldberg in National Review said as much. He denied that we are in the midst of a civil war on two grounds: One is that it is not violent, and the other is that we are fighting a "culture war," not a civil war.

Whenever I write about the subject, I almost always note that this Second Civil War is not violent. I never thought that the word "war" must always include violence. The word is frequently used in nonviolent contexts: the war against cancer, the war between the sexes, the war against tobacco, the Cold War and myriad other nonviolent wars.


Perhaps Goldberg would respond that he did not write that all wars are violent, only that all civil wars are violent. But if there are nonviolent wars, there can be nonviolent civil wars.

Nevertheless, what most disturbs me is his second argument -- articulated in various ways by most of those who disagreed with me -- that there is simply no civil war. And many repeated the universal belief among Never-Trumpers that a Hillary Clinton victory would not have been a catastrophe.

My response is that "culture war" is much too tepid a term for what is going on now. Maybe anti-Trump conservatives are fighting a "culture war," but the left is not. The left is working to undo the American Revolution. It's very close to doing so.

Of all people, one would think Jonah Goldberg would understand this. He is the author of what I consider to be a modern classic, "Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, from Mussolini to the Politics of Change."

His book leads to one conclusion: We are fighting fascism. How is that not a civil war? When you fight fascism, you are not merely fighting a "culture war."

So, shouldn't the primary role of a conservative be to vanquish leftism? To me, that means strongly supporting the Republican president of the United States, who has staffed his Cabinet with conservatives and already won substantial conservative victories. As I suggested in my previous column, conservatives would have been thrilled if any Republican president had achieved what Trump has at this point in his administration.


"But what about Trump's character?" nearly all my critics ask. Or, as John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary Magazine, tweeted, "For Dennis Prager, who spent 40 years advocating for a moral frame for American politics, to argue as he argued today is, may I say, ironic."

First, I have indeed dedicated much of my life to advocating for morality -- for ethical monotheism as the only way to achieve a moral world; for raising moral children (as opposed to concentrating, for example, on raising "brilliant" children); and for the uniquely great Judeo-Christian moral synthesis developed by the Founding Fathers of America.

But I have never advocated for electing moral politicians..

""The vast majority of people who do the National Security Agency’s intercept work, who translate and analyze — most of them are fresh out of high school," said Matthew Aid, an intelligence historian who has written about the NSA. "There are thousands and thousands of 18 to 21-year-olds doing critically important and secret work around the world." ...

"The NSA is a military intelligence agency, and many of the people who work on the front lines of intelligence gathering in the military are young enlisted personnel. If they are eavesdropping on anyone from a terrorist in Afghanistan to a Russian colonel, they need a very high security clearance. The equipment, the methods, the words they hear — are all highly classified."

Whaaaaaat?

The document leaked by the Intercept was from a printer with model number 54, serial number 29535218. The document was printed on May 9, 2017 at 6:20. The NSA almost certainly has a record of who used the printer at that time.

The situation is similar to how Vice outed the location of John McAfee, by publishing JPEG photographs of him with the EXIF GPS coordinates still hidden in the file. Or it's how PDFs are often redacted by adding a black bar on top of image, leaving the underlying contents still in the file for people to read, such as in this NYTime accident with a Snowden document. Or how opening a Microsoft Office document, then accidentally saving it, leaves fingerprints identifying you behind, as repeatedly happened with the Wikileaks election leaks. These sorts of failures are common with leaks. To fix this yellow-dot problem, use a black-and-white printer, black-and-white scanner, or convert to black-and-white with an image editor.

Printers have two features put in there by the government to be evil to you. The first is that they recognize a barely visible pattern on currency, so that they can't be used to counterfeit money, as shown on this $20 below:

The second is that when they print things out, they includes these invisible dots, so documents can be tracked.

Yes, this code the government forces into our printers is a violation of our 3rd Amendment rights.
