From the poorly-messaged democrats file:

'This emerging far-left wing of the Democratic Party, highlighted in part by the election of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is too much for even CNN apparently, which criticized the ‘Abolish ICE’ movement.'

I would send JiB with a team of Bechtel Get-R-Done Engineers, a few heavy lift copters for the pumps and generators, and that cave would be dry in about 24 hours... The kids could eat Big Macs while the water goes down.

And why I still walk across the street without demanding police assistance remains a mystery...

One late night, I missed my uptown Manhattan subway stop and wound up getting off in Queens. I had a ridiculous amount of cash in my pocket, for some reason, and I immediately found a cop and made him stand there with me on the subway platform until the train showed up. I'm not embarrassed.

Now that Harley-Davidson is moving part of its operation out of the U.S., my Administration is working with other Motor Cycle companies who want to move into the U.S. Harley customers are not happy with their move - sales are down 7% in 2017. The U.S. is where the Action is!

The article did tell me that the coach is 26, which explains his foolishness in taking them into the cave. He's not that much older than some of the older kids.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Lest we get too cocky re polarizing progs let's not forget the long ignominious history of Dems sending out the repugnant vanguard to test the envelope and express where the Dems secretly hope to get.
If the envelope tears then the conventional Dems tut-tut about extremists on both sides but suggest the barricade bastards have a point even if they do have a messaging problem.
Soon enough the marching morons of the middle nod their heads pretty vacantly and, voila, Dems are halfway to crazytown and they seem reasonable getting there.

Ignatz,

Coincidentally I just read an article recommended by Scott Adams about that very phenomenon.

https://quillette.com/2018/07/02/political-moderates-are-lying/

It's about how a few partisans can move the middle one way or another.

I also think it is why that Walkaway movement has gained momentum - through that very srong gay guy who posted the original video.

Good Morning.

I have in the last 2 days got involved in a little Russian collusion myself:)

A guy in St. Petersburg found a Jas. Lillywhite, Frowd "Kingcraft" model tennis racquet and contacted me thinking it was from the turn of century (19th to 20th) but I had to tell him it is actually from 1956. Seems he has his own collection of "The history of clothing and accessories from 1880 to 1910". IOW's the Last Czar period of time. In communicating with him I find out he is also the Curator of the Firearms collection of the Military-historical museum of artillery, engineers and signal corps in St. Petersburg.

Told my gay cleaning lady about "WalkAway" this morning. She was psyched. Like many gays she has always thought she HAD to be a democrat, because the right is racist, sexist and homophobic. But if a gay hairdresser could do it, so can she!

It all boils down to the mindset that you can accomplish whatever you want if you work hard enough vs. it's not my fault because I'm gay, black, fat, hispanic or whatever.

I don't think that's an accurate statement. All they EVER do is brazenly lie. They can't "move on" to something that has been fundamental to who they are from day one.

"the old acme denounce both sides but still drag us to the left trick ..."

was saying the other day, even those who pull the lever for R could have ideological bones to pick with the R party and end up purpling "us."

the monolithic Left shares some long-life political DNA: Being against something while claiming liberty and justice for all--- equally of course, which is not equal at all--- which creates the opposite of its intended effect.

my take on #WalkAway has been dialed down from "Hodee Chit!" to "Watch What They Do over the next 90 days"

That is all.

What fascinated me about that gay hairdresser's video was how full it was of the usual liberal buzzwords--that he then turned around on the Dems. "I reject hate."

This is what happens when your party brainwashes people into believing that absolutely everything is racist, homophobic, sexist, blah, blah, blah. So when some lefty gay guy lisps "I reject hate" and your party is behaving obviously, openly hateful, don't be surprised when your brainwashed proles start seeing the hate in you. Because it is in you.

(As an aside why do all lefties talk like that? Normal people don't talk like that. It's like they think that they have to throw around words like "heteronormative" to prove their bona fides to other lefties. That all they got to do is talk right, and that will gain them entry into the "the club.")

Tom R

The #WalkAway movement is all fine and dandy for the upcoming midterms but IMO in order for Trump's MAGA agenda to fully succeed largescale and longterm education reform along the likes of what RSE talks about has to be put in place so that the Marxists are no longer capable of brainwashing and indoctrinating multiple generations of the nation's youth. Whether its possible to actually complete such a Herculean task and rehabilitate those already brainwashed remains to be seen.

Kevlar Kid

"It's like they think that they have to throw around words like "heteronormative" to prove their bona fides to other lefties."

Their penchant for such amoeba words are what shuts off any open path to communicate with ProgTardoz here in Zerkeley.

At social gatherings it's been heard (buzillions of time): "If they aren't going to address the heteronormative bias of their politics, I got nuthin to say to them." (Followed by the neck wiggling thumbsnapping Damond Wayans popularized as the homonormative Black film critic on "In Living Color" back in the 80s...very tired.)

Those amoeba words Lefties expect EVERYBODY to address, more of a labyrinthine trek into a buzz saw--- or a C-, or conversation will somehow be rendered "unclean."

The habit (or "construct") is adolescent. "If you don't validate me and all of my b.s. then it means you just HATE ME!"

"Why do you hate me so much?"

Well, Lena, I LOATHE you because

1) you smell-- hygeine is very affordable, even without your ability to sustain a living wage by your own devices;

2) you have a sex problem around which you've built an entire legal code; and,

3) you've distorted the meaning of family and reduced it to mean "whomever has put their knees under my kitchen table in the last 10 years."

So, we good? (That's my closing question at Zerkeley dinner parties.)

My routine ultrasound of my aortic aneurysm is today. It never seems to grow so I don't imagine any changes will be detected. Sometimes I pray that it gets slightly larger so I qualify for surgery.

Somehow I lucked out and was blessed with an aneurysm that is large enough to put me on blood pressure meds and hand me a weight lifting and hard work restriction that is completely opposite of the type of person I was when I built my business and supported my family.

Two separate cardiologists have said they wouldn't crack me open unless the aneurysm shows a little more growth. So until then I am the guy that can't lift more than 30lbs.


In the meantime I will stick to the less stressful version of JOM.

OL, thanks for the complement ref: Getting those kids out of the cave. I guess it is not large enough to use a mini-sub to get them out one at a time. Why bring in a portable barrage and dam it up temporarily? Don't know the topography but there must be severe restrictions to not have them out already.

Jane

"I don't expect many of them are going to start voting republican"

I dunno. Trump is not your typical republican (altho I'd love it if he were). And if they actually realize their vision of the right has been created by the left's hate, we might see more than you think. I also think a lot of the people moved by that video know Trump is doing a great job for them, but they were told not to believe it.

Or maybe it's wishful thinking on my part.

And they spew all the buzzwords out all together, mostly in the same order, every time. Like they have a button in their back that gets pushed and the tape runs on a continuous loop.

During a hearing before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington, Awan pleaded guilty to making a false statement on a loan application. As part of the deal, the prosecution dropped charges against his wife, Hina Alvi. Prosecutors also said they investigated allegations of misconduct by Awan as part of his role in Congress, but determined federal charges were not warranted.

from the Fox News article linked above. Can you say whitewash?

That such a potentially massive abandonment of the Pied Piper Party is even necessary speaks to the "You've been played" impact of Progressive Indoctrination Institutions throughout America.

Iranian General Accuses Israel of Causing Drought by Stealing Clouds

Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali, head of Iran’s Civil Defence Organisation, said that the changing climate and drought in Iran is “suspect” and a coalescence of malign, anti-Iran forces are to blame, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

“Foreign interference is suspected to have played a role in climate change,” General Jalali insisted, adding that an Iranian scientific study “confirms” the claim.

“Israel and another country in the region have joint teams which work to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain,” he said.

General Jalali cited a survey carried out over the past four years covering the climate of high altitudes stretching from Afghanistan to the Mediterranean Sea.

He said that above 7200 feet all mountainous areas are covered in snow, except Iran.

OL @ 11:43

Agree 100%.

This can't be dragged out very much longer. When you have obvious, blatant, widespread criminal behavior, there NEED to be equally obvious consequences and punishments.

If any average voter had committed a fraction of the crimes the Awans did at a private company, they'd be looking at a couple of decades in prison, and fines that would bankrupt their family for the next three generations.

To see them let off on a ridiculously lenient plea deal, with the vast majority of their crimes just swept under the rug, is unacceptable.

The

interviewing approximately 40 witnesses; taking custody of the House Democratic
Caucus server, along with other computers, hard drives, and electronic devices;
examining those devices, including inspecting their physical condition and
analyzing log-in and usage data; reviewing electronic communications between
pertinent House employees; consulting with the House Office of General Counsel
and House information technology personnel to access and/or collect evidence;
and questioning your client during numerous voluntary interviews. The
