This post indicates why the koi story is actually important.

The story is obviously a lie and is easy to understand from watching the full, uncropped video. There is no excuse for CNN lying about this, except that they thought they could get away with it. Other reporters picked up on it.

York's work in these two articles is important, but for people who don' follow the ins and outs of platforms and dossiers and the like, the koi story is useful for demonstrating that CNN lies.

Ahhhh how nice!!!! Dead Kelley called his Daddy to tell him he had been shot. RIP MOTHERFU#$ER.

Dave, Joy Reid has even outdone The Omen in the stupidity on Twitter department. This is about the third faceplant in as many days.

To quote House -- Everybody lies.

CNN has now been caught in one. Doesn't make 4chan or Julian Assange more credible.

GUS

Dim bulb Judith Miller just asked why we need "weapons like this" to hunt for our lunch.
She wants an end to silencers on guns.
I've got a picture of GUS JR. shooting a 30/30. People have told me that he doesn't need that kind of weapon to shoot animals. I say, "that gun is for shooting you, when you try to take our freedoms away".

Sue

The AP is reporting that the shooter didn't have a license for the gun he used. Just an FYI, Texas doesn't require a license to purchase any gun, including hand gun.

Buckeye

CNN has now been caught in one. Doesn't make 4chan or Julian Assange more credible.

Appalled's pivot is true to form.

rse

GUS--does miller have any idea how much paperwork is involved with purchasing a silencer? Talk about something that is thoroughly known to the existing system.

I went to a 2nd amendment program a few years ago and that was my intro that some lawyers do nothing else. Before then I had never heard of a gun trust.

By last year bloomberg was sponsoring the 2nd amendment program and we almost had rioting in the audience with the propaganda being pushed. Many older lawyers recognized the bs. Many younger believed it was factual.

Was a silencer used yesterday? These people are such idiots. Might as well ban black clothing... at least the shooter wore some of that.

Appalled,

My concern is not with dodgy internet sites, which obviously are susceptible to hoaxes and manipulation.

I AM concerned about an international news organization which pretends to be broadcasting the truth when, in actuality, they are deliberately posting lies about the President of the United States.

Besides, "everybody does it" is not an excuse. That is ridiculous.

The shooter stopped at a VALERO convenience store on his way to hell. I hear he was asked for an i.d. to buy a 32oz Pepsi.
Joy Reid?? Don't know the dizzy bitch, but she appears to be black.

3 words dizzy bitch....SHIT CA GO. 569 murders so far this year. Most of them black men.

We'll see. His Senate run was a bit uninspiring and the formerly reliable GOP vote stronghold of Loudoun County has been drifting leftward for the past decade. Clinton won the county by 15% and 30k votes. VA is oddly left leaning, but I suppose it could surprise and elect some GOPers statewide, since the legislature is in Republican hands (House 66 and Senate 21).

McLame injured himself by putting his foot into his mouth.

Clarice,

I note one critic is ex-CIA. This morning I posted an article which said the now-deposed former crown prince had extensive ties to the US intelligence community, so I sort of discount that guy's criticism.

And look here: Greg Gause is

One guy on Twitter this morning said McCain hurt himself jumping over the fence to support democrats.

Its Bruce riedel who I took to task in my piece on the body bomber. He had one original insight in 1981, and that's about the extent of it. Also brookings got 15 million from Doha so cui Bono.

http://thehill.com/homenews/house/358942-texas-gov-abbot-gunman-was-denied-gun-permit

“Current law, as it exists right now, should have prevented him from being able to get a gun,” Abbott told “CBS This Morning.”

“I can tell you that before he made this purchase, he tried to get a gun permit in the state of Texas and was denied that permit.”

...

Abbott said it’s unclear how Kelley was able to obtain the military-style rifle used in the shooting, but predicted investigators will uncover that information in the coming days.

Not sure what this means. Is a permit required in TX or not?

Serious question: is that evidence of the brain rewiring you've claimed is the endgame of current education? Or is it more experience versus callow youth?

Some of the Horde are pointing out that the current goings on in Saudi Arabia are a deserved kick in the balls to the Bushes.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

exdemocrat,

How long has it been since we have had a First Lady wearing Dior? I would bet Jackie Kennedy was the last.

Michelle Obama always wore those edgy designers (who probably paid her to advertise) and Laura Bush seemed to always wear the same designers favored by her mother-in-law.

Great pictures of Melania! Thanks!

ch-the neural rewiring has been going on in some school districts for a while. It's just nationalized and then global now.

Given the ages involved and the attitudes I think it is more a product of college ed and then the current nature of law school with its emphasis on using the law to mandate social change. Most of the angriest lawyers were young minority women. I think they get very caught up in using the law to impose the society and economy that strikes them as "fair".

It's not just lawyers though. When I was at the rollout of the Metro Atlanta Equity Atlas I was deeply saddened to watch accomplished physicians who saw themselves first and foremost as black and put upon. I am working on something now involving area school supers who are ridiculously paid and who lie to parents and school board members about what they are doing and why. One of them is an Hispanic woman and I think she justifies what she is doing here and did in austin and before that St Paul because she has a huge chip on her shoulder about this country and any template where children of successful parents are more likely to be good at traditional academics.

On FOX Business, Diedre Bolton is on with Trish Regan discussing the illegal leak of Wilber Ross's Tax info about offshore holdings. I guess it is called The Paradise Papers, some info hacked by by somebody and given to some German Papers to damage certain folks like the Queen, Bono, etc. Diedra says the revelations may be bad PR but none of it is illegal.

Diedra: Trish, none of this Tax Avoidance is illegal...so tho' it might be bad PR for them, it is not illegal. There are plenty of critics out there who are saying "listen, maybe this system should be addressed because it adds this one more layer of secrecy, critics say, to the possibility of illegal activities, because the whole point of this is that normaly this is secret." What happened is that there was this huge Data Breach, a leak basically, hackers went in, stole, there's no other way to say it, 13 and a half million documents, gave it to a German Newspaper, which then the German Newspaper distributed to an international Journalistic consortium, and then it has come to our attention.

Trish: ...So basically how it works is somebody like Wilber Ross may say "OK, I want to be investing in a vehicle that is actually located offshore", and in doing that what, I save a little money on my Tax Bill?

Diedra: Yeah. Essentially it is fewer taxes and lower taxes by putting money in places that are offshore that are often very stable politically...but you are allowed to, and oftentimes it is not the Billionaire...it's their investment advisers coming to them and saying...here is this offshore account, are you OK with this?

Trish: In the case of Wilber Ross, he very much was painted over the weekend as doing something that was "quote, unquote "Shady Dealings" with Russia.

Diedra: ...Especially in his case , he , as far as I know, did not go out and look for this investment, and the company that he had a part investment with is actually publicly traded, it has not been sanctioned by the US Government, it was suggested to him by his advisor...He knew, but he disclosed when he joined the Administration, all of this is Public Record.

Trish: So he put it all out there? They were trying to say initially he didn't disclose this.

Diedra: No, no, no. It has been disclosed.

Trish: Thank you for clearing all that up.

I tell ya, the Trump White House has more fashion sense than anyone since Jackie and the media are suppressing it, I say, suppressing it!

Hope Hicks knocked it out of the park last night in Tokyo, while Melania continues to stun and Ivanka is right there with them.

That the media sucked up to Michelle Obama and does nothing but denigrate the Trump WH is appalling. We got 8 years of flabby arms and hobo/bad tourist cargo pants and capris jetting off for long weekends with mom in Malaga and London on the working man's dime. That is just wrong.

Nancy R had great style and a lot of Hollywood friends from the old school. Unfortunately, what passes for class in NYC these days is anything but.

Not that Melania cares much, but Anna Wintour can bite me, the witch.

Richard Engel is after Wilbur Ross. He's excited as hell. I (accidentally and regrettably) caught a few minutes of his turgid excitement. It's connected with those Paradise Papers. The few minutes/guests I saw all said, 'doesn't appear to be illegal (I'm sure they're twisting in their pants hoping they'll discover something, though) but the 'appearance of impropriety' with a government official, and one as high as Ross, makes this very troubling.

You'd think after twelve months of this rabid hate, the media and left would have headaches, but they keep running down this highway of hate, foaming and frothing at the mouth.


The murder rate in Tulsa has increased 20-30% in the last two years. The world is going crazy.

http://nypost.com/2017/11/06/sharpshooting-plumber-fired-shot-that-took-down-texas-church-gunman/

I keep thinking leaders in both political parties will come to their senses, speak up, and try and calm down the raging hatred, but the public doesn't hear anything from prominent Democrats (who have kept this nation at a boil for so long) except hatred and division.

Not all of the anger is on the left, but I haven't heard a statesmanlike public comment from anyone in the Democratic party. They cheer their acolytes like that smirking, twisted man on CBS who replaced Letterman. Every night all three networks prime late-night SUPPOSED COMEDY SHOWS bray and jeer at President Trump. (I don't watch them, but they are quoted as if they're experts. Our local newspaper's tv guide, prints synopses of their shows, and every one is about something bad or foolish President Trump has done.

Well, thanks for letting me get this off my chest.

Well, I cannot judge on Maria's top since I never found a photo of it, but the "Moses, Moses, Moses" thing daddy posted really got me guffawing, since my sister and I hated Nefretiri. My sister used to do a mean imitation of her in that movie, complete with hand gestures.

Richard Engel had about a 12 minutes expose on Ross and his investments. He was super-excited.

Last night I only listened to one man who worked as some kind of ethics expert for the Bush administration (reminded me of the Tin Man from Oz) who thinks Ross should resign.

Engel had a couple more people expounding on the "apparent" and "possible" close links to Russians by Ross's holdings.

Final Va poll, for the record, has Gillespie losing 51:45.
Posted by: Old Lurker | November 06, 2017 at 03:08 PM

And as we all know, polls are never wrong. 538 has average of last 10 polls showing Gillespie behind by only 3 points. Pretty much within MOE. I remember way back in 2015 when nobody thought some loudmouth builder from NYC had a chance.

Why Ed Gillespie is surging in Virginia (WAPO)

In the run-up to Virginia’s 2014 Senate election, Republican Ed Gillespie trailed Sen. Mark Warner (D) by double digits in almost every single public poll. Gillespie knew the polls were wrong, but to the GOP establishment, Warner seemed invincible, and as Election Day approached, the party focused its resources on more “winnable” races (such as Scott Brown’s failed Senate campaign in New Hampshire). Two weeks before Election Day, Gillespie tried to get the GOP to kick in just $350,000 for ads and get-out-the-vote efforts, but his pleas fell on deaf ears.

In the end, he lost not by double digits, or even single digits. He lost by just eight-tenths of a percentage point.

snip

First, he is a tireless campaigner. Gillespie says that he has shaken 1 million hands and that his volunteers have knocked on 1 million doors. He attends every county fair and ethnic festival. “I’ve just flat outworked him,” he says

Gillespie is following a proven model that has brought the GOP unprecedented success at the state level over the past decade. In 2008, there were just 21 Republican governors; today, there are 34, tying an all-time high for the party, and the GOP controls both the governor’s mansions and legislatures in more than half the country. Republicans won this unparalleled control of state governments at a time when Barack Obama and Democrats were dominating on the national stage. They did it by ignoring Washington and offering up better ideas to improve the lives of citizens in their states.

Interesting use of the word "make"...

The firm at the center of the Paradise Papers says everything they have done is legal. This all a part of the globalist agenda where governments have been played off against one another and are now fighting dirty to get some sort of tax truce. The Queen had a lousy $13 million in some trust and they have hit all sorts of rich and famous who probably didn't even know what their accountants and lawyers were up to.

And apparently, Donna Brazile has some stones according to the latest drop from her new book.
