Much better.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

How many VA police were injured?

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

Well it sure feels to me that we are getting close to war in this country. Anyone else feel that?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jane, Two were killed in a copter crash.


Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 3m3 minutes ago

Deepest condolences to the families & fellow officers of the VA State Police who died today. You're all among the best this nation produces.

Jack is Back!

Jane.

Two killed in Copter crash. Had nothing to do with the protests.

 narciso.

So when will they get raided:

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jane,

There are elements who would LIKE to have Civil War. I don't think it's here, regardless of the posers on Twitter.

I absolutely want an investigation of Charlottesville.

Who funded all parties at the scene (Antifa, KKK, BLM, Nazis, etc.). Who organized the rally?

Why were the police not monitoring Antifa, but only the "white nationalists"? (I put that in quotes because I think a great many of that side were NOT anything but disaffected people who wanted a voice.

Why was the street not blocked where the car went almost a block hitting people before stopping? Who was the driver? Reports are now conflicting on his identity.

Why was the news media all pimped and primed to attack Trump over white nationalism? If you were watching Twitter, the criticism of the President was almost instantaneous.

Why are NeverTrumpers attacking the President over this? They sound remarkably like Sally Kohn.

I hope Sessions does a complete investigation, including Terry McAuliffe's role in this.

henry

Jane, I sense someone would prefer that to Trump completing his term. It is Antifa inter squad fratricide so far. Not sure the "alt-right" social media forces and info wars are on our side. 0Hour claims they are paid by the Kremlin... Sputnik and RT news. Something is very amiss, #NeverTrump and the left are cool with it. It seems to be a broader version of the "chaos" narrative, and more in line with the self inflicted nooses and fires.

Jack is Back!

I think a Chris Stroud v. Kevin Kisner last group tomorrow will be compelling golf TV. Let the others force the game. If no rain this evening that course will be 2 to 3 strokes more difficult especially the greens.

I am going 7 under to win.

Jack is Back!

Lets remember who is the top guy in charge of VA State Police at this time.

Jack is Back!

Watching CBS coverage of golf they advertised Stephen Colbert's show having Muuch not Mooch on Monday. Just to show Trump what loyalty looks like. What an ass to go on there.

I'm adding this link because it is amazing to me how much information is available on the web compared to the endlessly repeated content-free tidbits promoted by the MSM.

This reporter seems to me to be fearless, decent, and opinion free.
what a concept.

I like Matsuyama's position, JiB - especially after his closing 64 last Sunday. It certainly looks like we'll have another fist time winner of a major tomorrow - third time this year...

Just stopping by to say get well to Kev. Our next door neighbor had a similar spinal infection last year that nearly killed him. He's in his late 70s and had other problems along the way. They filleted him along the spine, but don't think they actually removed any vertebrae. They speculated (somehow) that he contracted the staff infection while visiting his dad some years before at a Santa Barbara hospital and that it had been dormant for years. Maybe anonamom can clarify that idea.

What was amazing with the neighbor is that he managed to get through the pain killers without any lasting effects.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

henry,

I am glad you are following 0Hour1 as well. He sure does find a lot of information, even if his writing is in Millennial-speak.

Lee Stranahan (whom I discussed earlier and my low opinion of him) does do work for Sputnik.

I wonder about some of the others. Cernovich is a blatant opportunist and borderline crazy. He has been pushing the idea we are in a Civil War on his Twitter feed. I am sure a lot of his followers have retweeted it.

One of the things I have noticed is that social media has given a lot of people an inflated idea of their influence and importance. YouTube has allowed a lot of people to make their own videos anad thus be "stars."

I find I am worn out with all of this. I am probably going to pare my Twitter feed way down. I find I cannot tolerate any more McMullin, for example. I hope he gets arrested for something; sedition would be a good charge, I think.

Marlene

Yes Jane, today's news is so discouraging. I just turned on the TV and the narrative has already been created. MM's point about the Never Trumpers is correct,some Republican Senators think Trump's statement was weak.

Extraneus

So anyone who'd mix it up with Antifa is "alt-right"? I don't even know what alt-right means, but I wouldn't mind doing it.

Funny thing, now that I think of it. My father was one of those hard-hat "riot" guys in Manhattan. Came home with blood on his shirt one day.

Hopefully Soros wasn't funding that, too.

I missed the comment about KevlarKid's health, but get well soon, buddy!! :)

sbw

Among the matters Mr. Mueller wants to ask the officials about is President Trump’s decision in May to fire the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey

Dear Mr. Mueller. No. It is not obstruction of justice to stop injustice. You know that Comey overstepped his bounds. You know Comey illegally leaked to set up your appointment.

You admit that in public and then we’ll talk, but but not until you admit the injustice of your own position, your own fishing expedition, and your own heavihanded prosecutorial excess.

Manuel Transmission

On a separate note, our usual Friday meeting of the Young Republicans and Ammo Reloading Society, included the doctor son of a new retired doctor member of our little group. After interacting with the son, I invited him to come join the JOM gang. He was amazingly up to speed on all things we talk about and would be a great addition. He lives down near Frau in Redlands and practices in Loma Linda.

OL, after reading your lament about the neighbors in Nantucket, I can empathize. The difference out here in this county where Hitlery got 70 some percent of the vote, is that most of the people we have found that are nominally conservative are mostly all self-made folks. No trustafarians in that small crowd.

Why are NeverTrumpers attacking the President over this?

Miss Marple,

Because of this by henry.

Not sure the "alt-right" social media forces and info wars are on our side... Something is very amiss, #NeverTrump and the left are cool with it.

At least that's what I've been sensing for a while since the President took office and the media - along with the #NeverTrumpers, the Democrats, Republicans and the Deep State - began its onslaught against him.

They've been beaten back by the President time and again, but they're never going to stop. He is a threat to everything that matters to them.

sbw

ManTran, please advise the son he will be obliged to filter out the noise from the signal.

Manuel Transmission

sbw. Heh.

Barbara

some Republican Senators think Trump's statement was weak.

Marlene,

I've been away and haven't yet heard the President's statement. But to be called "weak" by the Republican Senators has to be the most insulting and comical thing I've heard yet out of this mess that's called Washington.

The President makes a strong and appropriate statement about North Korea, and they cower. But let the President make a measured statement about what happens in this country, and he's not strong enough.

In psychology, they call that "crazy making."

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Barbara,

He condemned violence on all sides. He thought we should probably investigate. And he called for people to love their country and each other.

Horrifying, according to the left and Never Trumpers. I guess they wanted him to call out Richard Spencer by name or something.

It occurs to me that if the DOJ is going to open an investigation, it's probably etter if the President is seen as not goign after certain people, prejudicing any case against them.

A little wild kingdom action: there's a long gentle hill on the road towards our house with a hayfield on one side and heavy trees on the other. Someone punted a half-grown deer into the berm on the tree side where it was hidden in the weeds. Coming down that hill a couple days ago, without knowing the deer was there, I spotted a half dozen buzzards hunkered together and when we got close, they flew off to reveal the fawn. Next day, same spot there was a baldy there and it finally decided our arrival would require it to liftoff and glide down about 30 yds to a tree limb. For all the baldies we see every day, it was startling to realize its wingspan nearly reached across the opposite lane of the road!

henry

Wow... Man Tran! I had a young baldy fly over my duck hide once, but as a juvenile not as big as you describe. They are magnificent birds.

Porchlight

Obvious false flag operations in Charlottesville. If the left didn't already have David Duke and Richard Spencer, they'd be obliged to create them.

/pol, who are experts in fake Nazism, will find out who ordered the flags and torches, and the left isn't going to like it.

Barbara

Thank you, Miss Marple.

His response was measured and caring. Unlike what we've seen in the past, he didn't add fuel to the fire. IOW, he acted like a statesman, not a politician.

Marlene

The eagles are awesome,we have them on the river. Hubby was kayaking with my brother a few years ago and my brother yelled,watch out! An eagle took off from a tree hanging over the river and the limb the eagle was sitting on broke,fell into the river and almost hit hubby on the head.

Barbara,

I just unfollowed Laurie Dhue for retweeting a vile Joe Scarborough comment that Trump was afraid to denounce Vladimir Putin and white nationalists.

The MSM has their narrative and are running with it. I hope Porchlight is right and /pol finds out who was involved. Frankly, those guys are better than the FBI.

MM Where did you hear that the driver who rammed the crowd was IDed?

sbw

AP dredged up Jesse Jackson. I thought he had died years ago. Maybe it was just interest in his race-baiting, graft, and extortion.

Fortunately, I can wait for Monday before I have to edit AP again.

AP also invoked the journalistic SAD of “some said”.

Dave, Wictor and 0hour on Twitter pointed out the driver was ID'd. Then a lot of confusion as an erroneous ID was back tracked. Waiting the 24 hour rule out makes sense re this driver.

jimmyk on iPhone

Catching up on OL's observation: "I do not think we could find 12,000 people of their equal even among 325,000,000 today, in or out of government."

I would argue the bigger difference is not in the number of great minds, but the willingness of the rest of the population to be persuaded by them and to be governed by them. As amazing as the Founders were, the fact that the American people signed on was the most remarkable thing.

Nowadays the great minds are relegated to the periphery while mediocrities and worse maintain power, and most of the population likes that just fine.

Jack is Back!

Forget NK, the country you need to worry about is ANA.

They just won the Women's high jump at the IAAF world championships in London. The funny thing is that Putin is the president of that country also. Is there nothing that guy cam't do?

7 didn't even know has anything worthy to say, so why would have followed her In The first place

Miss Marple the Deplorable

jimmyk,

It has become apparent to me, looking at our political class, that over time, probably since the beginning of the last century, both political parties have organized themselves to elevate mediocrity and corruption.

It begins at the local level, with county commissioners and town councils. The competent are pretty much weeded out at this level, although a few manage to make it into state legislatures.

By the time they are running foe the House or Senate, they pretty much are in the pocket of the medicre Uniparty, inc. Along the way, they get an inflated idea of their intellect and importance.

Hence that stupid comment of Mitch McConnell's and other blather we hear from a variety of Congress members on both sides of the aisle. We admire a few like Grassley or Gowdy only because the others are so pathetic.

I am in my cynic mode tonight. Pay me no mind.

 narciso.

Followed her years ago. She doesn't tweet much, but boy, she couldn't wait to jump right on the virtue signalling train. I imagine she's looking for a job.

I told her why I was unfollowing her.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Sasse is another one. His last actual job was a small college president. I see no evidence he has ever done anything productive.

He seems to spend most of his time posing in the manner of Flake, as narciso points out.

I never under aclu logic re skokie, allowing Nazis to match there aS with Miami beach would seem to be fighting words and at worst a direct threat.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

narciso,

I grabbed that because there was apparently an actual stand-down order. This s the first confirmation I found that it was true.

narciso

No it's an important detail, I was speaking of the ignorance or malice behind the original decision.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

narciso,

Since the Mayor has come out and blamed Trump, I think we can figure malice.

I really want an investigation of everyone involved in this: all protest groups, media, cops, city government. It is absolutely disgraceful.

daddy

Am in the Paris Hotel, where all the international channels are damning Trump for taking too long to condemn the White Supremacists in Charlotte. No surprise. Every channel exudes an atmosphere of group-think that Trump is an enabler of White Racial violence and if anyone is responsible for Charlottesville's violence, it is Trump.

On the French TV channels Macron continues to take a beating in the opinion polls. I wonder if it has anything to do with Macron not personally attacking Trump, because when I see news clips over here of Venezuela's Maduro, I do not get the sense at all that the Media has created a narrative of hating Maduro, and I wonder if any of that has to do with the fact that Maduro has been vocally anti-Trump.

It really seems to me to be no more complex at this time than if a world leader publicly disses Trump then he is a guy worthy of Media respect but if he does not publicly diss Trump he is deserving of media criticism. Welcome to Junior High.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Hi, daddy.

Been following this all day and the more I find out, the more I think this was a coordinated episode of violence in order to start the attacks on Trump as a racist.

I have unfollowed a bunch of people on Twitter, including many reporters, because I refuse to even read this bilge.
