First (getting to be an easy accomplishment, yes?).

simply stupid

Reposting from last thread
One of the issues with Google is that their searches trend left plus we get lazy to do the actual search and discovery and do not verify the truthfulness of the search results. Or in some instances things are slipped through the rabbit hole.

Case in point what is the etymology of the word privilege that is spewed so often by the SJW crowd. I recently read a Marcus Lehman's book Josel of Rosheim. In his prologue he states that the Jews had to pay to the Church privilege to be able to conduct business in various trades. So privilege in the middle ages was similar to jizya and how the meaning of the word privilege has been so turned on its head in modern times.

Nutroots is, indeed, the spot for Warren who remains a joke on every level.

henry

Wait. When the freedom caucus doesn't give in to moderation or logic (aka whatever McCain is smoking), they are labelled extreme.

So Lieawatha is promising to be extreme? Is this a day ending in y?

Good afternoon! Lizzy Warren is more of a shrill b*tch than Hillary. Is that even possible?!

Marlene, Ms Harris says "hold my beer"

Clarice Feldman

From a friend who says this account is from a long time reliable source: A close friend lives in Charlottesville, was out and about yesterday tending to personal business and saw a portion of the events. In a note to me this morning he said; "What a circus. Not surprised in the slightest but it's criminal the way the media is reporting this. The "counter protestors" outnumbered the "demonstrators" by about 20-1, the police funneled the demonstrators right through the middle of the counters, with no protection and the sides just inches away from each other. Quel surprise that violence broke out. Honestly I think the politicians here and the cops wanted it to happen."

Clarice Feldman

Marlene, they're just slugging it out for the Shrew Bitch title.

Marlene

That is interesting,Clarice. I heard or read that there are over 700 Confederate statues and many will be removed. Lexington,Kentucky is planning a removal. Are riots planned in all of these places?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Removing the statues won't be enough. The next step is new statues extolling the left's heroes. Expect to see pushes to put up barack Obama statues.

I am serious.

Captain,

As I understand it there were 2 Lawsuits re:Taylor Smith.

The 1st was that the fired Disc jockey named Mueller sued her for $3 Million for intentionally getting him fired. That was tossed out by the Judge a couple days back.

The 2nd is her Civil suit against him filed I think after the first Lawsuit and asking for retribution of only 1 Dollar total. She is going after him and his Lawyers very hard on the witness stand and doing very well from what I've read.

I think he intends to file a 2nd Lawsuit against her mom and agent for intentionally getting him fired after this 2nd Trial proceeds. My impression is that he is as untrustworthy as the other Mueller and is getting his ass handed to him. I really am amazed the Oprah's and the Ellen Degeneris types aren't full of praise for her toughness on the witness stand. There has to be a reason for them to be as uninterested in her trial as their apparent uninterest in the Sarah Palin Trial.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

daddy,

Thanks for the update. I hadn't been following the Taylor Swift thing.

Oprah and Ellen not interested? I am so surprised.

Clarice - Gov. Unindicted Crook Mc Offal showed his hand before it started by predicting a dangerous situation. How could he know? I hope his leadership is questioned repeatedly. I am copying "simply"'s suggestions from the previous post.

Hey Virginia is having a gubernatorial election in November thus Charlottsvile . Let Judicial Watch and ACLU do FOIA on all e-mails of the Charlottsville Mayor and Governor Macauliffe. Also start going after him on Mccabe and the EB-5 scam and let Trump start a twitter storm on Macauliffe there was no great job Brownie moment on this one from Trump to be hung to dry by media.

From your information, I would include the communications of the Charlottesville police in the FOIA request.

To borrow from our friend MarkO..EWarren..is just not that smart..

Matthew 23

Godbotherers our own Jihadis.


Since the end of the Civil War, it has often been suggested Lee was in some sense opposed to slavery. In the period following the war, Lee became a central figure in the Lost Cause interpretation of the war. The argument that Lee had always somehow opposed slavery helped maintain his stature as a symbol of Southern honor and national reconciliation. Freeman's analysis places Lee's attitude toward slavery and abolition in a historical context:

This [opinion] was the prevailing view among most religious people of Lee's class in the border states. They believed that slavery existed because God willed it and they thought it would end when God so ruled. The time and the means were not theirs to decide, conscious though they were of the ill-effects of Negro slavery on both races. Lee shared these convictions of his neighbors without having come in contact with the worst evils of African bondage. He spent no considerable time in any state south of Virginia from the day he left Fort Pulaski in 1831 until he went to Texas in 1856. All his reflective years had been passed in the North or in the border states. He had never been among the blacks on a cotton or rice plantation. At Arlington, the servants had been notoriously indolent, their master's master. Lee, in short, was only acquainted with slavery at its best, and he judged it accordingly. At the same time, he was under no illusion regarding the aims of the Abolitionists or .the effect of their agitation.[68]

From the previous thread: Does anyone know what the facts are around the NY Magazine debunking of the internet download speed versus a local download to a flash drive?"

---I know we have been told that the FBI has never forensically examined the "hacked" DNC Servers.

---The other day I read that we had not yet interviewed the Brit Spy, mr Steele.

---Somewhere else I read we still have not demanded and received an answer from the FUSION/GPS creator as to who paid to create this Russian Dossier.

Is it honestly possible that the greatest investigative service in the world has honestly not done those 3 things? Is that humanly possible? Can it be true that within 12 hours our DOJ has leaped into action to do a Civil Rights Investigation of the Charlottesville "murderer" yet they're still sitting on their hands for those 3 things I listed above?

I had a snarky text exchange with the daughter about Charlottesville. They are in Europe, arrived in Vienna today. One of my remarks to her...BLM was in the neighborhood,I'm surprised they didn't go to Monticello and burn it down, Jefferson being an old white guy and slaveholder.
I really hope that history being erased won't be tolerated.

Frau  Knuppel in der Hand

I am convinced that Gov. "Free Speech for me but not for thee" McAuliffe organized and got the desired outcome in Charlottesville.

“Virginia is the birthplace of the rights to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly that make our country great. I expect that most of the individuals who participate in tomorrow’s events will honor that proud legacy by expressing their views safely and respectfully. However, in advance of tomorrow’s rally there have been communications from extremist groups, many of which are located outside of Virginia, who may seek to commit acts of violence against rally participants or law enforcement officials. In the event that such violent or unlawful conduct occurs, I have instructed state public safety officials to act quickly and decisively in order to keep the public and themselves safe.

“Finally ... Many of the individuals coming to Charlottesville tomorrow are doing so in order to express viewpoints many people, including me, find abhorrent. As long as that expression is peaceful, that is their right. But it is also the right of every American to deny those ideas more attention than they deserve.

Soros and his Anti-fa goons were on hand to deliver.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Kev,

Feeling better? We sure missed you!

 joan

Kev, I feel like I'm intruding but would you tell me what is wrong. I missed your post, and then saw a couple of posts that said to go back two or three threads to see what you had said. I went back to two, but I had a bad headache and literally got dizzy trying to scan for your post. Again, I sort of feel like I'm being nosy, but I have been worrying about you.

Prayers lifted for your return to good health.

And, by the way, just after anonamom posted her suggestion, I bought two copies of Plant Paradox -- one for my sister and one for me. I'm glad I did because I just discovered Friday that my sister's test returned 'cancer in her colon.' I'm depressed -- our mom died from colon cancer (that had spread everywhere.) Anyway, in reading the book, it seems like you, Kev, have been living much of the Plant Paradox.

Take care and God bless you.

Unindicted crook McAuliffe said "However, in advance of tomorrow’s rally there have been communications from extremist groups, many of which are located outside of Virginia, who may seek to commit acts of violence against rally participants or law enforcement officials"

Extremist groups to commit acts of violence against rally participants?

I am convinced that Gov. "Free Speech for me but not for thee" McAuliffe organized and got the desired outcome in Charlottesville.

I am, too.

MM laid out the all the connections on the previous thread. It's amazing how reporters all knew what to expect, how every prog and NeverTrumper had their tweets and statements queued up and ready to go, and on and on and on.

The left really won't be happy until there is full scale civil war, will they?

 narciso.

Rocco

I'd be willing to bet that the majority of those thugs were McAuliffe's ex cons. The female reporter from The Hill was punched after being told to stop recording. My first thought was he didn't want to be recorded doing something illegal at the protest but then we find out the thug had warrants. He didn't want to be recorded because he had warrants and I'll bet most of those thugs cover their face exactly for that reason.

Kev...hope all is well

Captain Hate

I really am amazed the Oprah's and the Ellen Degeneris types aren't full of praise for her toughness on the witness stand. There has to be a reason for them to be as uninterested in her trial as their apparent uninterest in the Sarah Palin Trial.

She seems to be navigating the channels of stardom superbly, given what little I know of her. She handled Kanye's boorish attacks in stride without whining about it. She doesn't seem to care about SJW things and she wrote a song about breaking up with a Kennedy. I think she's been on Ellen's show before, a long time ago.

I guess its the obligatory sentiment

Interesting onscene, eye witness report from Infowars chick [who sounds quite sane and sensible] on what happened at Charlottsville.
Not exactly a bunch of poor innocent peeps linking arms and singing "We Shall Overcome" attacked by rabid Nazis. Just the opposite in a large way, in fact. Grain of salt of course but sadly in this world Infowars has considerably more credibility than all the Alphabets put together.

As to reporters etc being there; this was apparently fairly well known as a probable confrontation as even the detestable McOffal admitted when he acknowledged the rally was threatened with violence before it occurred.
However they obviously wanted a confrontation by how they handled it.

And of course dusting off the "white supremacists are the only real terrorists and Reps have to disown them" meme requires no lead time to deploy. It's their default shibboleth.

Kev's post is at 12:45 P.M. at the top of the page.

Due to 'Just 10 Hours' I hadn't heard anything, and was about to ask where Kev had been, when I learned why he was AWOL, so I looked through the old threads till I found it.

I join you in wishing the Kevlar Kid a total and speedy recovery.

I'm so sorry to hear about your sister's diagnosis - prayers will go out for her, and for you and the rest of the family.

Thank goodness Virginia has one term governors.

I haven't seen any video or photos of the aborted rally. Looks like both sides would have documented it.

I'm sure you're correct, mockmook.

By filing those stupid suits, the doofus is making sure he can't find work in the field again, although there are bigger fools everywhere.

Speaking of which, lots of troll activity today.

I didn't hear that DOJ was opening a civil rights investigation. I heard they were opening an investigation into everything that happened.

Ah, never mind, it was described as a civil rights investigation - with FBI and the western district of VA.

Having a great time of it today. Fiddling with the pain meds trying to find out that sweet spot where I can minimize pain and avoid the drone-like existence that comes with "pain-free" standards.

There are 3 different variations on the daily pain menu. Delaudid (sp?) was the Satan of them all. Nasty brain splattering tonic.

Mrs. Kid said I should have rigged myself to some tape machine while I was on that 24 hour ride at the beginning of this gig.

Is Elizabeth Warren a transgender? She, in my view--please I don't care what snowflakes pretend--is the most masculine fake Cherokee I have ever witnessed. She is very harsh, severe and unlikeable!

off topic...but post-two day celebration of grandson's 16th year..I decided to try to organize his education opportunities ( the arena for brilliant autists differ from "normals"--) But researching future offerings, I worry what all young minds could be subjected? brainwashed?? Into...

There are male, female human beings...a very few births present with both and their chromosome/beta protein hormone blood tests will determine sex, along w organs. It's just science. It's also science adult same sex attraction is a personal, "chemical" reality, not as common as heterosexual--but private personal ADULT matter. I am reading some class material the grandson, would study in a secondary/collegiate Science crossover course, and the young adult "body dysmorphia" being pushed as a physical treatable post-pubertal condition , to me is child abuse by unethical experimentation!! I'm not a morality prude, but neither a heretic. The acceptable in society , science, history ( and Its progressive rewriting of it) are antithetical to producing successful civilizations!...
