certainly there was little notion of planning to London,

"We're doing really well with the evangelicals," he continued. "And by the way, and again, I do like Ted Cruz, but not a lot of evangelicals come out of Cuba, in all fairness. It's true. Not a lot come out. But I like him nevertheless."

TK,
Brownells! I just thought back and realized I've been a customer of theirs for about 40 years now.
God, I'm getting old.

narciso

yes, it's damning with faint praise, the evangelical experience was pivotal in cruz's family experience, as faith is with carson,

daddy

There's an interesting story in today's NYT about how outside of Beijing they've built a city called "Jackson Hole" where they've reproduced large wooden houses that look like those in Wyoming which quotes Chinese residents saying they want to live like Americans in big houses with yards (and presumably in suburbs)

Clarice,

In Guangzhou (Canton) they built an artificial mini-European City called The Dragon Lake Hotel Complex

Looks quaint, don't it.

Our guys were stuck there initially for a year or so if we were saddled with the dreaded "Hotel Standby" period, (that's where you have long periods where you can't drink and you can't really go anywhere because you have to be close enough to the airport where if they call you out you can show up at the plane in about 30-45 minutes. Anyway, this place was fairly near the airport and way out of town, so no fun could be had, and as this place was basically totally empty it had the feel of the old Brit TV Show "The Prisoner" with Patrick Magoohan, so that's what we nicknamed it:

We had our own designated Chinese "handler-girls" who would come running and escort us around this large abandoned place and set up meals and massages and the usual, but eventually it drove our guys nuts, and following heavy bitching and some complaint of water contamination in the manmade lake, we finally got out of having to be imprisoned there any longer, so now we are either downtown (if lucky) or imprisoned at the hotel at the airport (if unlucky).

I was only stuck at the Dragon one time thankfully, as I hate Hotel Standby so I never bid it, and I'm senior enough to usually avoid that odious duty.

My guess is there's a few more of these abandoned Western-style villages dotted around the country, and someday they may come in handy should they need re-education camps.

Trump was carrying on about how many weapons he and his family had bought from them, Ig.

The owner came up to a cheering audience and was a genuinely likeable guy.

Thanks, narciso. I was looking for that. I'd found an interesting video depiction, but the maps are easier to folloe,

daddy

I expect, the gun control program will not survive the first court challenge, daddy.

Clarice,

Levin's point was not that Obama's move wasn't un-Constitutional, (it is) his point was that hardly anyone in the MSM is railing about it being un-Constitutional. If it had been Reagan or Bush or W or anybody with an "R" on their back doing the same thing the MSM would all have gone ballistic, but instead they hammer Trump for his un-Constitutional comments nonstop, while completely ignoring the ongoing un-Constitutional edicts coming out of the White House on almost a weekly basis.

The Infamous Ignatz

Long time family owned business, TK.
I have to question whether Trump has bought guns from them. They do sell a few guns [I may have bought a barreled action or two from them] but far, far and away the bulk of their business is gun replacement parts, custom parts and gunsmithing tools.

clarice

Well, daddy, there's no need to repeat the obvious about disparate treatment..but as I said years ago when they first started fluffering for Obama, they're going down with him, and they are.
As for the abandoned developments, Jackson Hole is not a megalopolis--it's a western style old west development and its fully occupied with people who arrive in their suvs. Some wanted it as a weekend place (rich), but some have found they like american style living so much, they've moved there year round. Ot's about an hour from Beijing.

the Simpson, back when they still retained a modicum of wit, did a parody of the Prisoner,
homer ends up sent to the Island after he unwittingly discovers a real conspiracy,

one of those bubbles follows him, when he escapes and he pops it, provoking the ire of no. 1. of course some think the prisoner is just a sequel to another McGoohan vehicle, where he also played a secret agent,

narciso

couldn't find that part of the segment,

Clarice, Cecil had a good comparison between Obama;s "must act now" when he was sure a bitter clinger was the shooter and "beware of backlash" when it turned out to be Islamic.

The other thing with that is how Obama & the Dems run to stand with Imams at mosques. It is the one culture/religion/ideology that gets official protection when one of Islam's believers commits terrorism or a crime.

"The Democrats set to attend include Reps. Don Beyer (D., Va.), Joseph Crowley (D., N.Y.), Betty McCollum (D., Minn.), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D., D.C.), and several Virginia state lawmakers, according to the New York Times." - http://freebeacon.com/national-security/democrats-to-attend-prayer-service-at-radical-mosque/

and this

"Jeh Johnson to hold brief with imam tied to organizations with links to Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas" - http://freebeacon.com/issues/dhs-secretary-to-hold-press-conference-at-mosque-tied-to-muslim-brotherhood/

Janet

Why didn't they go visit a church or synagogue or some organization that provides services and programs to people with developmental disabilities (like the San Bernardino facility)?

clarice

Or to the families of the BLM thugs--Janet.

narciso

clearly they see Islam as legitimate, and of course, 'cursed' to suffer the backlash, Stephen Emerson, noted some 30 years ago, how contributions from the gulf, was shaping policy at key think tanks like CSIS, and major universities, he noted
then the approach to buy Bert Lance's bank which became a cornerstone of BCCI,

It seems to be a form of Stockholm Symdrome, to cozy up to one's captors, or in this case to those who threaten us with violence. I'm not talking about people like Obama or Ellison, who are more fundamentally sympatico, but garden variety liberals. Bizarre.

narciso

reading that book on Entebbe, I was struck how many films, referenced elements from that incident, Gruber's phony demands are right out of the Baader

In the 90s, there was this sudden wave of attacks on Pope Pius, the sources of which are scene in that romanian defector's book, but new facets are seen from Riebling's tome mentioned above, from Cornwell to Constantine to Carroll, even Dan Silva
got in on the act,

narciso

well one could be crass and point out, how he has done a good bit of business with Prince Talal, not ordinary folk, who has sponsored some of the Deobandi lobby's handiwork, ethanol isn't about oil, it's about the price of food staples, like bread and milk, and sinecures of course,

GUS

Jimmy, Bergdahl DESERTED. He went willingly into the loving arms of Muzztard terrorists, who beat, used and drugged him.

WTF IS wrong with US. Bergdahl has since been USED by OBAMA to further FUX us, and Bergdahl has paid NO PRICE for his desertion, for his treason, nor for the loss of AMERICAN servicemen who were sent to save him. Obama is a motherfucking criminal. Obama and Bergdahl deserve adjoining lamp posts.

Read this SHIT. It's what passed for URINAL-ISM, in the LIBTARD infested MFM.

This is not JOURNALISM, this is BIASED BASTARDS pretending to represent some sort of non-biased reporting. It's BEYOND a JOKE.
The LIBTARDS decide the truth, then these UNBIASED pricks, use THEIR CONCLUSIONS to interrogate anyone who doesn't accept their sick, dishonest and immoral bias.

Dave (in MA)

Unfair, when I attempted to watch that movie I was asleep within a half hour.

The Infamous Ignatz

My takeaway was Trump supports ethanol subsidies. What a radical outsider.

BTW,how is Trump any less susceptible to special interests because he's self funding?
He is a special interest.

Special Q for TK; Trump says "I'm with everybody".
Is that the same as Jindal's 100%?

The Right Scoop commenters are nearly as cult like for Cruz as Sundance's commenters are goofy for Trump.
Something's gotta give.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Read this SHIT.--

Hilarious. The Yahoo cites the AP, another paid PR firm for the DNC as the authority debunking PP videos.

"So Mr Molotov, have we starved any kulaks today?"
"Not a one Mr Stalin. They're fat and happy."

The Infamous Ignatz

Off to slumber.

GUS

Ig, Trump is an egomaniac, a bully, and has ZERO SCRUPLES. He actually telegraphs his glee at SHITTING on anyone who would dare "challenge" him. And he DOES attack ANYONE who gets in his way.
Some of this shit is obvious. Unfortunately, CULTISTS, whether right or wrong, are very poor at self assessment.
Trump is the result of the GOP allowing us to be shit on.

GUS

Yes Ig, the AP cites Yahoo or vice versa. It's become WIDE OUT in the OPEN.
At what point does the MFM realize it's own suicide??

I knew they were questioning the guy who set up Hillary's E-mail server, but I didn't know that State Dept emails of Hillary Clinton IT staffer who invoked the 5th go missing

Now it turns out the State Department can’t find any of his emails that cover the time in question:

You are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America.

Withdraw from the U.S presidential race as you will never win."

Remember - "... the five wealthiest countries on the Arabian Peninsula, that is, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain, not one has taken in a single refugee from Syria. Instead, they have argued that accepting large numbers of Syrians is a threat to their safety, as terrorists could be hiding within an influx of people."

pagar, at a minimum you;d think the coordinator would have studied up on it before her appearance.

Jojo

GUS you know a lot about Trump, I guess you've watched all his speeches to know so much.

Jojo

GUS Trump does a riff on Bergdahl in mostly every speech, things you won't hear from any other candidate. The cult leader is pretending to believes the same things about him that you do and puts on a pretty good act of sincerity.

Cecil Turner

If ya'll are sick of my posts about the pilots missing in Ga. -

No, in fact I'd missed the story entirely. But are they pilots? The initial blurb said they didn't show up for "maintenance" training, and the pic of the guy on the left is an NCO without wings (which generally means he's a guy who works on aircraft, not flies them).

clarice

As I recall, Cecil they were maintenance guys.

Clarise:
Please write about Cruz' subcommittee with Steyn and Curry. That has dropped off everyone's radar except Daddy's. Thx

Clarice, not Clarise.

Go watch, tickets are free.

Keep the faith, Jk; that video is powerful, Steyn and Curry questioning the Senator. Here's the commenter pottereaton, whom I call the Duke:

"The exchange between Judith Curry, Mark Steyn, and Senator Markey will likely be remembered as one of those compelling moments in which the alarmists and their extremist environmental accomplices lost control of the debate. In terms of the theater, nothing is more dramatic than witnessing a respected scientist(backed by a talented polemicist) force an ideological windbag to confront the shallowness of his beliefs.

Markey, to his credit, did not flee the room. But he probably should have."
