Jack is Back!

Time for bed. Chelsea won. The Highland Park nightcap was perfect and the comments on this thread are above anything on the net.

See you on GUS time tomorrow:)

Beckel's last comment before the break is "Get Your Facts Straight."

Sandy "The parallels with the Islamic faith are striking."

Both, we are told, have vast majorities who are reasonable and moderate for whom the troublemakers do not speak. Trouble is, we never hear from either of those two vast majorities, and they do nothing to moderate the crazies within their groups. Jews berate Jews, Christians berate Christians, and Whites berate Whites pretty much all the time, but not Muslims, and not Blacks.

How's that for a parallel?

Jim Miller

hemry - I thought today's WSJ lead editorial was a pretty good summary of the Wisconsin GAB scandal.

But then I have not followed this scandal very closely.

Any thoughts? Anything the Journal got wrong or missed?

"Haters gonna hate"

TM - this is what I am concerned with. A few more dead cops will likely bring out haters on the other side and more shooting will start. If we do not have a race war within the next 2 years, I will truly be surprised. To some degree, we may already be past the point of no return - I certainly hope not. I hope that those who the media are giving a voice to the hate realize the gravity of the situation and put the brakes on fast.

While me and mine are well prepared, I do not want to watch anymore people killing each other in senseless hatred.

"EU Gives Hamas Green Light to Attack Israel

http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4971/eu-hamas-green-light

"Even if the EU court decision is reversed in the future, there's no doubt that it has already caused tremendous damage, especially to those Muslims who are opposed to radical Islam."

"Any victory for Hamas, albeit a small and symbolic one, is a victory for the Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood and other fundamentalist groups around the world."

henry

Jim, the WSJ was on target. They have gotten "leaks" all along. If anything, they understate the GAB delenda est faction in the legislature and the total denial of the GAB director Kennedy, the GAB staff, and the DAs. This is playing out behind the scenes, but is more intense and vicious than the Act 10 protests.

Other news, Holder will step in to "investigate" the Donte no charge and relight the race war.

Extraneus

I wish the right would not take the revenge they are taking.

Please. Rahm's only mistake was saying out loud what every lib knows without being told: do not waste a crisis.

DoT's quotes about Texan haters being responsible for Kennedy's assassination is just one of many examples of this, as are the more recent excuses to stir up the blacks re: Trayvon, the Gentle Giant and Gardner.

I hope this latest crisis doesn't go to waste. Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Wilhelm, LeBraun, Alcindor, all the hoodie wearers, the Hands Up Rams and many others should have their words and phony deeds shoved down their throats, if not elsewhere.

Giuliani had it right when he explained that cops wouldn't be in these neighborhoods if they weren't ridden with crime. I know how NYPD cops handled it in Dinkins' day, so let's see how it goes when cops back off and keep out of the high-crime areas in NYC.

daddy

Compare and contrast:

A)

B)

Interesting isn't it that when the Affordable Care Act was signed and Pelosi and the Congress-folk did their victory Parade, they all heard dozens if not hundreds of racial slurs hurled at them, from Conservatives, but astoundingly none of them were ever recorded on all the Audio/Video of the occasion so no one was ever able to win Breitbart's $100,000 challenge for evidence.

Then on the other hand we have just a handful, just a very, very few bad apples causing problems at what DiBlasio calls a "very Peaceful Protest," and which the Press has irresponsibly focused upon in order to foment a false divisive meme against Liberals: What Do We Want? Dead Cops."


Funny how that works, no?

Extraneus

How's that for a parallel?

Libs never berate libs, either, no matter how extreme. Even the OWS defecators were handled gingerly by their Democrat sympathizers.

"Haters gonna hate, and the "Off The Pigs" crowd has been around since the 60's."

Indeed, the 'same crowd'. It's Alinsky all the way down. 60s radical chic (kill the pigs, africa for the africans blah blah) became 'Three Mile Island', became 'no Pershing/cruise missles in Europe, became 80s 'unilaterally drop nukes, became 90s 'anti globalization', became 2000s 'Boosh Lied', became todays 'Black lives matter'. It's all the same bullshit and same Alinsky cast of characters, the headlines are merely the excuse de jour.

Some Guy

It is very important to distinguish that all of this is based on lies.

Not on misstatements, differences of opinion, varying perspectives, etc., but deliberate and intentional lies -- falsehoods repeated and amplified AFTER they were proven to be untrue.

Complete BS like 'Trayvon was ambushed and murdered by a cop wannabe with a Jewish sounding name'

'The gentle giant was a sweet kid innocently standing with his hands up'

"a cop chokes an unarmed man to death"

They were lies INTENDED to inflame and incite, for crass political gain.

Now the perpetrators and peddlers of those lies want to pretend they don't have blood on their hands or that this cause is righteous. DuDa, and everyone like him, are responsible not only those cops murders, but for the additional violence that is coming because they choose lies. They did it knowingly and willingly.

IF these idiots had a shred of humanity, they'd at a minimum crawl in a hole and hide. They wouldn't go on television or the internet and double down on the lies.

We are very lucky to have Giuliani speaking plainly to dolts like Chris Cuomo. Rudy's position is "You don't take 5th Ave, not in my city." It's as if DeCommio has never heard, "give them an inch, they'll take a mile."

And the SEIU 32BJ tool was charged with inciting to riot. Not too far along that vector to the mental loser pulling his pistol. This sort of connection used to be self evident - hence written into the criminal code.

Has Rahm's son made a public statement that centuries of Slavery and Jim Crow justified the Mugger's knocking out his teeth?

Why not? What's the matter with Rahm's son? Where the hell is his compassion?

Iggy

Concern trollery brought to new heights of artistry as Mama Cass Sunstein compliments W on his "graceful" silence as Barry burns the world down and blames W for it.
OTOH he has harsh words for Panetta and Gates for letting anyone know what a feckless idiot Barry is.
He tops it off with the most disingenuous hope that Barry will be equally graceful in his dotage.

"Hacker Grugq makes an excellent point that laying this on North Korea is incredibly convenient, Lets Blame Our Perennial Adversary! He points out that we know how North Korea does this kind of stuff, and this is very different. “This is a media blitz campaign by a group that is steeped in Internet culture and knows how to play to it. They can manipulate it to maximum effect. This is definitely far more sophisticated than the usual rhetoric from North Korea.” And Jericho lays out a detailed case that nothing anyone has said comes anywhere near to convincing us that this was North Korea, Anatomy of a NYT Piece on the Sony Hack and Attribution.

the additional violence that is coming

They'll probably continue to flourish elsewhere in the city, but I would guess that the protests will die down on Staten Island. The white boys there are surely pissed off right now.

Btw, I didn't realize until I read the link below that the Gardner crisis happened five months ago.

They almost let that one go to waste.

Hmmm, this guy claims the marginal price to keep oil flowing is $20 for Saudis and shale. He expects oil to fall to that price. Bad for new wells, but no wells will stop producing while demand stays sluggish. My SUV approves.

"DuDa, and everyone like him, are responsible not only those cops murders, but for the additional violence that is coming because they choose lies"

That is a good point.

The combination of deliberately provocative falsehoods spread by dimorat officeholders and their union/media/academe allies is different than "freedom of speech".

The right is not taking revenge. The right is responding to cultural pearl harbor and nine- eleven.

Break point for Saudi oil is $60. If it goes to 20...oh well.

There are myriad lies spread by the Dems, but chanting "What do we want? Dead cops." Followed by dead cops cannot be compared to rancorous lies or heated rhetoric.

It was incitement to murder. It still is.

Did any significant Dem condemn those chants?

Police Chief Flynn just went all out condemning Dontre's brother for calling for "getting rid of the pigs" after the DA announced no charges this morning. Walker looked calm, noted the National Guard has been planning for this with Sheriff Clarke for several months. It's dark, the rain stopped, and the protestors are now next to city hall at the park where Dontre was shot. The big lie here was Dontre was minding his business, not clubbing the officer with his own baton.

Ben

"“This is again the key reason why the United States right now decided it needed to open up a new front against Russia and this is the whole United States-Cuba agreement.”

Estulin noted that “the global market for physical gold is extremely small” compared to the market for paper gold; “$360 billion per month are traded in paper gold and only $280 million a month are traded in physical gold.”

“The West has spent as much of its efforts and resources to artificially increase the purchasing power of the dollar and lower oil prices and artificially lower the purchasing power of gold but the problem for the West is that the stocks of physical gold in possession of the West are not unlimited,” he said.

“Russia poses a real threat to the American model of petro-dollar world domination,” he added."

"DuDa, and everyone like him, are responsible not only those cops murders, but for the additional violence that is coming because they choose lies"

Is is not that they choose lies, its that they have to. Cases of the actions they attribute to cops and others are extremely rare.

They are trying to protest a perception, a feeling of racism. As such all they are left to do is to create falsehoods to fit those feelings and perceptions.

Sandy - plenty of oil and natural gas in Michigan, not always cost effective to do so.

NKvirusedand back

Unless Dana has gone totally mental, I don't think Ben is Dana. Dana mostly avoided making specifc factualy assertions which could be rebutted. 'Break point' for saudi oil is $60/b, huh? Saudi variable costs are under $2/b, and capital costs are below $4/b, total production costs are below $6/b. They have by far the lowest production costs in the world. at $110Brent they made over $100/b. Life was amazing for the princes. Now they 'only' make $50/b; yes a lot of nice things have to go and the government budget will be cut, but 'breaking point'? Just stupid; Dana avoided trapping himself that easily. Maybe he has gone mental.

Not terribly knowledgeable about Oil and NG stuff, when I read about the Henry Hub Price, from reading at the RBN site, I thought first it was some sort of automotive accessory shop you were involved with, Henry.

Imagine how long they can survive with those low costs.

That's the point Injun Joe. If they want to break some backs, that is.

Or are they providing assistance to the consumer as a Christmas treat?

Iggy - sunstein's choice of panetta & gates as contrast with W rather than Clinton & Carter reveals both his bias and the real purpose of his piece, no?

PDinDetroit

Sandy - The Oil and Natural Gas "Pumps" are still pumping and Exploration is still going on in Michigan. Certain areas have been prohibitively expensive, generally due to depth of deposits.

My brother just bought house and property on the West Side of the state, there are oil wells in the vicinity but they did not obtain Mineral Rights in the transaction. There have been times when Mineral Rights were given up to the State in lieu of Property Taxes, so it may not be straight-forward in access to drilling on specific properties.

Back from church (penance service). It's raining here.

O'Reilly on phone with Greg Gutfeld and was very hard-hitting on DeBlasio. Said the mayor sided with the protesters and considers Sharpton a friend and ally, and although he didn't directly cause this, he was responsible for creating a climate of hatred for the police and now he is trying to talk his way out of it. (Not a verbatim report like daddy does, just general gist.) O'Reilly was as angry as I have ever heard him.

I don't know, Iggy. I last saw him Nov. 1, when he was extremely frail. McC had not yet begun talking about the Senate report and his views on EIT (although he had expressed them in the past. I spoke to Ed frequently and in detail about his Hanoi experience--he was very open about it--but never asked what he thought about the Gitmo procedures.

He hosted a fundraiser here for John during the '08 campaign, and he and I did a few-odd things to help out. He was always loyal to McC as a fellow aviator and prisoner, but I very much sensed that he was disappointed in him as a Republican, for pretty much the same reasons I am.

Some regret among our "mainstream" journalists?

I may be imagining things, but most of the stories I have seen in the past two days on the assassination of the two New York police officers are delivered by journalists who seem a little ashamed of their part in hyping the anti-police stories.

As they should be -- though I don't expect those feelings of shame to last forever. Or even very long.

(I'm in the Seattle area, for those who don't know.)
