Good Morning J O M

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Good morning, boris.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

From cboldt in the last thread;
--Whatever mess the country is in, don't blame Obama for it, because ALL of it is at the hands of Congress.--

Isn't that a little like not blaming the leader of the delinquents that all threw rocks through a bunch of windows on the theory they could have stopped him instead of joining him?
And Barry threw plenty of EOs and other executive rocks the worthless, useless, disgusting ::spit, spit:: congress didn't have a whole lot of control over.

Miss Marple

Ignatz,

Point me to where Paul Ryan even SAID anything.

You are right about the EO's but they bear a huge chunk of blame as well.

My point, MM, is Barry doesn't avoid blame just because Ryan and company could have stopped him but joined in enthusiastically instead.
Hence ::spit, spit::

Miss Marple

Clarice,

It was Chaffitz who said that to her.

I wonder if he deliberately said that to light up certain phone lines and emails.

Think I'll refer back to the original Latin from now on when referring to the antifa scum.
From now on it's antefa, as in they're precursors or, to use their terminology, the vanguard of total fascism.
"Anti" has taken on too much of an "against" rather than "before" connotation.

Captain Hate

cboldt is 100% correct that the GOP congress bankrolled the Zippy agenda.

DebinGA

Houston is home to two of the largest church congregations in America - Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church and Ted Cruz' Houston Second Baptist. Both claim over 20,000 members. MSM barely noted the great outreach to Katrina victims from AK Gov. Mike Huckabee and AK Christian churches. Probably did the same with Rick Perry and Texas Christians. They may try to focus on the misery and ignore the outpouring of love this time, but people are woke and that ploy won't succeed.

Captain Hate

According to the Horde, Rove joined in with Juan to blast the Sheriff Joe pardon. Rove should be the last to comment after his great advice to dunce GWB to hang Scooter Libby out to dry. Idiots.

Super Pieces, Clarice, as always.
Touching on the tools of the Deep State/Open Society:
I hereby designate the SPLC as a hate organization. By their definition, they have determined that "Antefa" is not a hate group. Their place in the demise of our country was clear from the beginning, starting with their Orwellian name.

by Cate Carrejo
2 weeks ago
The now infamous Antifa movement made itself known to the country in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, counter-protesting, sometimes violently, against a white supremacist rally in the historic Southern city. The counter-protesters are attracting significant criticism from nearly the entire political spectrum, and many are saying the far-left activists are just as bad as the far-right ones. But there's one significant difference between Antifa and many of the other groups represented in Charlottesville right now — Antifa is not a hate group.

The Southern Poverty Law Center outlined its criteria for hate groups in a 2016 memo on why Black Lives Matter can't be classified as such. "Generally speaking, hate groups are, by our definition, those that vilify entire groups of people based on immutable characteristics such as race or ethnicity," wrote Richard Cohen, the organization's president. That means that Antifa wouldn't qualify either, since the movement's focus is on ideology, not demography, just like Black Lives Matter.

Antifa hates the First Amendment, the freedom of speech. That is far more dangerous than a group whose focus is based on demography. The neo-commie thugs show up not to protect any group but to silent ideas *they* have chosen to eliminate.

Miss Marple

I swear to God I would pay cash money to see Trump pardon Scooter Libby.

lyle & MM,

True in a fashion. Newest littoral style ships have lower radar profiles, much like our F-117 and B-2 aircraft. But that is not the issue or problem. Its the training, especially officers who assume deck watches and division control as well as sleep deprivation (skinny navy, more work for existing assets).

At least that is what I am hearing through my USNA-AT -LARGE net and other sources.

--cboldt is 100% correct that the GOP congress bankrolled the Zippy agenda.--

Yes, he is but he's wrong to say "don't blame Obama for it"; it being the mess the country is in.
Am I not saying "a pox on both their houses" [or I suppose in this case all three houses] clearly?

Gotta run.

Didn't Scooter Libby get his law license back?

"Cheney would like it, for sure."
Prog heads would explode! I would hope Markos "Boots on the ground in a military repair shop in Germany" Moulitsas would be the first.

cboldt

Ignatz - Obama couldn't have broken the windows without Congress. He said "throw the rocks," "jump off the cliff" and they did.

The new guy, Trump, is telling them to stop throwing rocks, and they won't.

Clarice Feldman

rocco, I think that last link is to a fake story. It's not reported anywhere and the article is strikingly lacking critical details--like where?

No body gives a carp is right.

Jack is Back!

Good question.

Captain Hate

The Repukes got control of Congress by promising to push back against Obama. Yes it was Obama's agenda but the GOP had a chance to minimize it through the tools they had available and chose not to. Merrick Garland is the only exception I can think of and McConnell surely knew that he'd be out of a job if he caved on that.

jimmyk

Which the Dems are taking them to school on since January. At this point there's no excuse for Republicans' failure to change rules to move appointments through.

Look, I have the most heart-felt sympathy for Holocaust survivors. I have read all of Elie Weisel. I have nothing but abject hate for the neo-Nazis, skinheads and white nationalists but I am with Voltaire and Holmes when it comes to "free speech" which this poor survivor seems to not understand. Even if you are a Holocaust survivor you came to America for lots of reason but our bill or rights should have been one of them.

Unfortunately, she is getting more PR than she should. I respect her ordeal and survival but not her free speech opinion.

"Generally speaking, hate groups are, by our definition, those that vilify entire groups of people based on immutable characteristics such as race or ethnicity,"

So an organization dedicated to vilifying - for example - law enforcement wouldn't qualify as a hate group according to SPLC?

Seems to me that if love is love, hate is hate.

Jack is Back!

Porch,

By their own definition, SPLC themselves is a "hate group".

Strange, the videos I've watched had the Unite the Right group clearly chanting "You will not replace us." I've *read* that some were chanting "Jews will not replace us." Most all references now state that it was only the version with "Jews..."

Those sent FIRST to Hitler's concentration camps were journalists, businessmen and outspoken citizens who criticized the Nazi government. Opposition had to be silenced before the rest of the agenda could progress. The full horror came next.

Free Speech died FIRST in Nazi Germany, and it didn't require a law. Thugs with clubs can accomplish a lot in a short time.

Wow, Soros must have done a Dutch Auction and bid down the hate rate to bottom dweller level. Pathetic.

In other news, POSdesta seems to have filed a bunch of amended disclosures admitting the work he was doing for Putin during the elections.

One of Clarice's Facebook friends has pointed out that the e-turned-to-i drift in spelling is the same thing that happened to "antipasto" which is the course before the pasta course. Whether you spell it antefa or antifa, it's the appetizer course of fascist takeover of the US.

henry

The interstates are under water. It's not clear anyone in Houston could evacuate at this point.

Jack is Back!

People in Houston elect their leaders. Their decision to leave or stay is the same as in the election for Mayor. If they were waiting for their choice to tell them what to do, its on them, not the Mayor even if he is a douche bag. Public education or as Neal Boortz called it "government education" has lived up to their proponents ideals and expectations.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

henry,

Which is why Russell Honore was right; they should have started evacuating 3 days ago. All of the models showed Harvey stalling over Houston.

The only way to evacuate a lot of these people will be by boat or helicopter.

Houston mayor should resign, in my opinion.

DebinGA

Activate a Dunkirkesque flotilla of small boats.

#ThanksAlGore #ThanksMichaelMann

Miss Marple the Deplorable

DebinGA,

They have put out a call for bass boats, flat-bottomed boats, etc. to help. Louisiana has residents (Cajun Navy) heading to Houston with boats. Indiana is sending water rescue, as is New York. Coast Guard is sending both boats and helicopters.

I don't think Houston realized how devastating this would be. (Or maybe they did but were looking for the anti-Trump photo op).

The downtown area looks to already have about 4 feet of water. More is on the way tonight.

Not all of Houston is flooded. The rescued folks need to be taken to dry land so they can be moved to shelters. I think boats are capable of that. The Cajun Navy is on the way per MM.

1/4 of TX population lives within disaster zone. Whoa.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I think I may be repeating myself, but I want to provide perspective.

About 8 years ago Indiana got a weird storm in which a huge amout of water was dropped on us in a 24-hour period. I am shaky now on theamount, but it wa somewhere between 6-10 inches.

What happened to me was that waer poured in through my basement window wells, flooding the basement rec room. My daughter-in-law got stranded in a parking lot and my son had to go rescue her with a work truck.

We had fish swimming down my street.

Note the rainfall amounts in that event (6-10 inches) vs. Houston which is already at 25 inches.

More rainfall and flooding is to come. This is a catastrophe. It is going to require fed help as well as Texas support.

Another Bob

Janet, not sure Olby retweeting hit is saying much good about hit.

We had a noname storm down in south Florida, in 2000, came up suddenly through the everglades, caused a fair amount of flooding in the main streets, it flooded my vehicle at the time.
