First is just sittin here for the taking?

TM, you forgot one:

    its Trump's fault

matt, deplore me if you must

I have spent a lot of time on Las Ramblas and despite the crowds it is still magical. The Mercat is one of the finest markets in the world. Another terrible tragedy. They have become the background noise of daily life in Europe now.

Political murder has to be crushed, whether it is the Islamists or the cop killers or a maniac loose in Charlottesville.

"Political murder has to be crushed, whether it is the Islamists or the cop killers or a maniac loose in Charlottesville."

They want to start by crushing Trump.

Captain Hate

Words fail to describe how much I hate television news. If this civil war ever turns hot, the Newseum has to be a prime target

Dave (in MA)

My town's Facebook page is talking about having a 'vigil against hate' rally, prompted by a self-professed "UU pagan" lady who has all sorts of rainbow flag, RESIST, upside-down old glory etc. junk on her profile, so I chimed in with the following sub-thread 3 hours ago. They don't yet seem to realize I'm talking about going to the Sox/Yanks game.

Dave: Regarding the big gathering in Boston on Saturday. I'll be there to protest one of the groups that will be participating. The way things have been going, I fully expect members of both sides to be violently swinging clubs. It's expected that over 35,000 people will be in attendance.

Sharon O.: Be careful...there will be bus loads of paid ANTIFA agitators

Jon: I'm gonna protest u protesting the protesters lol

Dave: The people I'll be protesting aren't even from around here. They're being flown here from New York.

Sharon O.: Organized paid thugs...very dangerous

Dave: There's likely to be a lot of throwing things, too.

Sharon O.: Wear face protection...they like to throw piss & feces

Dave: Never heard of that. Beachballs, sometimes. Some of them show up wearing masks.

Ellen: I've also heard of soda cans filled with cement. Be careful!

Clarice Feldman

Awesome trolling Dave!

Porchlight

Lol, Dave. Fights are likely to break out, as some of us know from experience.

cboldt

Dave: helmets too, some of them wear helmets. You might be able to gin up some fun remarks by speculating one group is certainly going to leave as "losers"

Barbara

LOL!

Be careful, Dave.

henry

does one team wear red hats?

cboldt
Attorney Christopher Gowen told Fox News that federal authorities have no evidence of misconduct by Awan relating to his IT duties.

I doubt there was any investigation there.

Dave (in MA)

I have to keep myself amused when I'm running long tests.

Tom Maguire
I've also heard of soda cans filled with cement. Be careful!

That might explain Aroldis Chapman's current struggles.

Spengler brought up slaveowners raping slaves and selling their own children. My ex-boss had a relative who did that and was murdered for it. No one tried to find his killer, so presumably he was white.

Texas Liberty Gal

MM - According to the all knowing hateful Shepherd Smith that tweet by Trump about the way Pershing treated terrorists has been debunked. He was all so pompous as he reported it. I hope he's debunked and soon!

daddy

From Clarice's 05:25

Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted Thursday on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements.

The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi.

Remind me again where the wife, Hina Alvi, is at the moment?

Oh, That's right, she's in Pakistan, with $12,000 bucks in her pocket.

Porchlight

pagar,

I think your 5:54 is fake fake news.

First, the guy who ran over the protester and Jason Kessler are two different people.

Second, the site is weird. It reads like a parody of a right-wing site, created by lefties. Look at the way the author is described.

Stephanie Puppy Pincushion extraordinaire

Bringing this over from the dead thread cause it is so good.

Unsurprisingly, the Dolchstosslegende was most popular with German military leaders. Likewise the Democrat Dolchstosslegende arose from the ranks of Hillary’s campaign leaders. It’s those in charge of the losing team who have the most incentive to blame anyone and everyone else. The Nazis blamed a long list of people including the Jews. The Democrats blamed everyone from the FBI to the Russians.

Hillary has become another Hindenburg touting her own Dolchstosslegende. Her latest book, ‘What Happpened’, will put the Dolchstosslegende into print. It will list everyone who lost the election for her. ‘What Happened’ may be an awkward title, but calling it ‘Mein Kampaign’ might have been a bit much.

Really good!

Clarice Feldman

pagar, that's an obvious photoshop and the guy who rammed the crowd was not Kessler. I'd dump that site from your repetoire. It's fake.

RattlerGator

No more apologies. No accepting of the Democrat or MSM framing of questions, or of their lies and slanders.

We've tried that, for years and years, and it has failed, every time.

Agreed, 100 percent.

Many folks are expressing real concern about the future of the country. Not me. I see this much like a juvenile temper tantrum. And I don't think it is playing well with most sane Americans, including those who are young and impressionable. The Democrats are losing an entire young generation of white voters.

Wolf Blitzer said that the Barcelona terror attack was a copycat of Charlottesville. Let that sink in so you realize the moronic level of hate they have descended to.

Also, Shep Smith should go back and read that tweet again:

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 4h4 hours ago

Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!

==================

President Trump didn't say WHAT Pershing did, so how is thatbesmirching Pershing and how is that something that could be discounted?

For Appalled and the ACLU -
Look closely. These are the rioters who went to the Austin TX streets to attack demonstrators and the police. They are not alt-right people. The are destructive hard-core communists.

Their stated goal is to overthrow the US government.

RG,

I waver between depression and your more optimistic view.

On one hand, it seems to be very easy for bad people to achieve certain goals with almost no resistance.

On the other hand, I believe you are correct about what's happening to voters, especially young voters.

But will our votes continue to matter?

Captain Hate

Oh c'mon, Frau; McCain, Rubio and Romney think Antifa members are on the same level as WW2 liberators.

Jack is Back!

Solheim Cup starts tomorrow and the Euros have a few Spanish players. Not a great way to begin but the great women golfers will make it special. Its in Des Moines. Iowa has room for a golf course - who knew.

cboldt

Porchlight - votes haven't mattered except maybe in local elections, for as long as any of us have been alive. The election of Trump is the first time pretty much EVER that the apple cart has been so thoroughly upset by the voters.

Elected politicians are actors. The deciders are off in the wings. The vote keeps the people fooled and passive; and is also used so the actors can say "you elected us, so whatever we do is legitimate."

Captain Hate

Bodacious slattering of the fraud named Jake Tapper:

'Trump's "good people on both sides" was jaw-dropping.'

No it wasn't. It's just yet another example of people who understand what Trump is saying versus those who don't. (Apology to my most generous host here)

He not saying there are "good" NeoNazis or KKK ers--he means there are good people who support keeping the statue as a tribute to the valor of those who fought for states' rights, and certainly many who want it removed are big-hearted people who have great empathy to the true pain having any reminder of slavery, not evil anarcharistics whose goal is to destroy this country.

Anything else I need to translate into elitism? I've spent a whole lot of time in those circles in the past decade, and about a decade twenty years before that.

matt, deplore me if you must

Porch;

$12,000 goes a lot further than you think in Pok-ee-ston. You can buy 1,000 goats and still have money left over to purchase 3 or 4 wives.

But if you're a woman it will probably just get you a beat down by one of your brothers of father.

matt, deplore me if you must

or father

clara

Anonamom, So sorry you have had to spend so much of your life dealing with elitism. Must be horrible.

Captain Hate

Very well put, a-mom.

 narciso.

Apparently this was connected to an explosion yesterday in another part of Spain. Wonder if this is tied to the gitmo detainee who wasguven 3 million euros, and wee caught tryingvto form an Islamic state cell.

Captain Hate

The local news was just aghast that Trump's comments were drawing so much criticism from foreign elites pretending to be leaders as they sell their own countries out. Let me translate for those ignorant fuckfaces: Free Speech, bitches; love it or shove it.

Wasn't this the point of the US vs Larry Flynt which the elite dickholes massively spooged over?

Barna has a special place in my work heart. 1991-1992 I made many visits there as my old firm managed the prep for the Olympic games. My guys were in charge of El Poblenou, the port area we developed contingent to the games.

One of the greatest cities in the world to visit. Very friendly and like matt says, the food, the wine, the fun.

You don't think we are sexist?

For the Ryder Cup we have B2's flyover but for the Solheim all they get is a KC135 refueling bird. Iggy knows those crafts.

Mark Levin reporting the van attack in Barcelona is somehow related to a couple of house bombings in "Akenar" (my ph.) Two suspects in custody. Driver on the lam. Point being there is a network. He is not getting this from US news reports.

Trump;

The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help.

Son of a bitch didn't even call out what sort of terrorists they are.
If he did the media would have an effin' cow precisely because he did say who these evil nuts were.

Show me where Trump said what you are criticizing him for?

Don't forget the almost $300,000 wired previously by the Arwans to Pakistan.

--Political murder has to be crushed, whether it is the Islamists or the cop killers or a maniac loose in Charlottesville.--

One of these things I suspect may not be like the others.
Not clear of course, but so far the evidence has me leaning to 'unsavory guy panicking' more than 'political maniac murdering'.

Related; I don't watch TV anymore. Is there some evidence the nazi guys actually engaged in much violence?
I have seen videos of commies smashing that guy's car and of nazi guys being funneled back through commies who took swings at them.
IOW anyone got a handle on com v naz violence in Charlottesville?

Massive explosion at Alcanar house on Wednesday night linked to Barcelona terror attack

Police in Spain initially dismissed the explosion in Alcanar as a gas explosion. ...

Inside the house, which police believe was occupied for a few months, they found around 20 canisters of butane and propane gas.

Ignatz, the 0hour dude on Twitter showed a couple KKK leaders than would instigate attacks (and fall to the rear immediately). One is apparently ex green beret. Both he showed were ex cons too. I think Wictor picked up on it. But I may have that mixed up, it was a couple days ago.

The video here debunks one guy, but the slowed down shots show the Unite the Right people being attacked & only fighting to protect themselves.

I think the event was shut down before it even officially began. Then they were funneled down the street in the video.

Corker, via ZH.

Comanche Voter

Having been on Las Ramblas a couple of years ago, I'm surprised that the van driver only hit that many people. At most times of the day it's jammed with people. As for the house blowing up in Catalonia, it sounds like the same sort of splodey dopes that blew themselves up making bombs for the Weathermen back in the 70's. In a just world Bill Ayers would have been there in the Weatherman bombmaking facility with his then girlfriend---just before she atomized. But as Ayers proudly boasts, he's guilty as hell and free as a bird. Sometimes Karma misses.

Comanche Voter- I was immediately reminded of Billy the Bomber's bomb factory in the family apartment of his unwitting girlfriend. He, of course, was absent when the disposable worker bees were busy at work.

A couple of days ago I would have been inclined to kick a cork up Corker's dumb ass.
But now he's just some dumbshit from somebody elses corrupt imbecilic party of hogs at the trough.

Imagine a member of the most feckless, pompous, sanctimonious, dissolute and dysfunctional deliberative body in the world lecturing someone else on competence and knowing what makes the country great.

Frau  Steingehirn

From Mountain Man at Althouse.

Most Confederate bodies were never returned home, just buried quickly in shallow mass graves on the battlefield that would then be dug up by wild hogs and other animals. In northern VA, where so many battles were fought over the same land, troops might go into battle marching over the remains from the last battle. Of the 5,500 Confederate dead at Gettysburg about 2,000 are still there, buried in the fields and woods, with no identification. Sometimes, when doing maintenance or restoration, the NPS will come across one. They just leave them where they are.

That's why in the South we have all these monuments on the courthouse square. They are for the men who never came home and were never heard from again. And that's why they should stay. There (sic) the only funeral markers that exist.

At least at Andersonville, the awful Confederate POW camp, the 13,000 who died now have a beautiful national cemetery with every grave marked, plus a museum. Henry Wirz, the Swiss-born commander, was the only Confederate office executed after the war. But I can't think of anyone in the South who ever want to deny those Union men the honor and memory that they deserve.

 narciso.
