New Alaska Reality TV Show---ALASKA PLANE CRASHES!

Yet another reason Joe Sixpack might be wondering just what we're doing in the Middle East:

Jane, thanks for your funeral comments on the last thread. I'm glad it was a nice service.

Kaleidoscopic would be closer than schizophrenic. Just two views or opinions is far too limiting. We're talking about a mind that is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives and susceptiple to changes in barometric pressure, tide cycles and wind direction.

Lisa Murkowski is upset because the new ALASKA PLANE CRASH reality show is paid for with your Tax Dollars :

The show’s concept is "cruel, hurtful and exploitative. And if that were not insult enough, it is enabled by two taxpayer supported entities," Alaska’s senior senator wrote in a letter to the show’s producers and the Smithsonian.

Murkowski was incensed that, despite the involvement of the Smithsonian and the NTSB, she only found out about the show after reading an article in Alaska Dispatch News.

Your daily Knish:

After Bernie Sanders visited the Marxist Sandanista regime in Nicaragua on a propaganda tour, he argued that the bread lines in major cities were a good thing. “American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing!”

Good thing there's such a big difference between Teh Bern and Teh [redacted]!

Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be built. Who's gonna do it? You? You, NK? You, apppalled ? You, theo ?

I have a greater responsibility than any of you could possibly fathom. You weep for the perfect Republican candidate, and you curse Donald Trump. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That The Donald's candidacy, while tragic, probably saves lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives.

You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want The Donald to build that wall, you need The Donald to build that wall.

We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it.

I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think.

Dave-- Hilligula and Obummer literally herd the 'media' in pens. Personally, I agree with treating the media that way, and the Media seem to be great teammates allowing Hilligula and Obummer to treat them as cattle, or... pigs as the case may be.

So who is showing up to protest at Trump rallies? Organized?

NK

BLM, and other Soros funded groups.

Miss Marple

If Trump is a sure loser, why would Soros-funded groups protest at his rallies? Does Ted Cruz have this problem?

Captain Hate

I don't understand why anybody would go out of their way to heckle somebody. I pretty much regard all of them as congregants in the Westboro Baptist cult.

NK

Trump's phony baloney primary campaign personna (per Dr Carson) is far more hateful than Ted Cruz, so it is much easier to get shock troops out. Your basic BLM moron does not know who Ted Cruz is. These rallies are a payday for the troops.

Lt. Daniel Kaffee

Col. Jessep: Have you ever spent time in an infantry unit, son?

Donald J. Trump: No sir.

Col. Jessep: Ever served in a forward area?

Donald J. Trump: No sir.

Col. Jessep: Ever put your life in another man's hands, ask him to put his life in yours?

Donald J. Trump: No sir. But I always felt that I was in the military.

Col. Jessep: You what?

Donald J. Trump: I attended a military boarding school growing up.

Col. Jessep: The hell?

Donald J. Trump: I probably had more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.

Col. Jessep: You literally have shit coming out of your mouth right now.

Donald J. Trump: Seriously, though, I've been so lucky in terms of that whole world, you know, my sexual exploits. It is a dangerous world out there.

Col. Jessep: What the hell are you talking about, son?

Donald J. Trump: It's scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam-era.

Col. Jessep: Are you brain damaged?

Donald J. Trump: It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.

Col. Jessep: You best get out of my sight right now.

Miss Marple

NK,

I understand that. But someone is paying them to protest.

Who? Why?

If Trump is a sure loser to Hillary Clinton, wouldn't it suit Soros to back him? Or at least not fund protesters?

Maybe it's just TV exposure, which is more likely at a Trump rally. Hmmmmmm.

daddy

FOX News shows there is a protest going on outside the scheduled Chicago Trump Rally.

Guess Rahm Emanuael was right---Black Lives Don't Matter when they protest against Democrats. Black Lives Only Matter when they protest against Republicans.

Anybody, anything without a "D" after the name is to be destroyed before this November. The power of the people must be represented in the protests, leaving no doubt as to who the evil ones are. DT has dared challenge Hillary! and must be eliminated along with any and all others.

There is only one Democrat running for president. Bernie is no Democrat. Why is he not on a different ballot?

NK

that's easy. The Soros type groups pay the POS street circus as part of their 'deal' with Hilligula/Obummer/Dems. Cronies have to advance street $$$, but boy do they make it back in spades. Warren Buffet's ROI from Obummer 2008 was obscene. Trump is a cartoon villain that Soros pays BLM to attack now, to keep BLM on the payroll and happy until the autumn when they are needed against ANY Repub.

The Infamous Ignatz

--the kinder, gentler (but schizophrenic) Donald Trump

Kaleidoscopic would be closer than schizophrenic. Just two views or opinions is far too limiting.--

OK, pet peeve time.
Schizophrenia does not mean dual or multiple personalities.
Maybe the problem comes from the etymology which means "to split" + "mind" but that is a reference to the splitting of the mind from reality and accurate perceptions and experiences not a literal splitting into separate personalities.

That comes under what used to be called multiple personality disorder and, last I checked, dissociative disorder.

They are essentially unrelated in that schizophrenia is a physical disease apparently caused by chemical imbalances and faulty receptors in the brain and being little effected by trauma or childhood experiences but has a seemingly more organic cause. The symptoms are not multiple personalities but hallucinations, delusions, paranoia and assorted other similar affects.

Personality disorders on the other hand have unknown causes that are usually resistant to medications and therapies and have unknown causes. What if any role genetics play or environmental causes is unknown as is the mechanism that produces the traits. They often but not always involve deep seated reactions to early trauma or malformed or not fully developed personality traits dealing with self image and misperceptions of how others perceive them. They almost invariably involve irrational reactions and coping mechanisms to deal with their misperceptions.

The Donald may be neurotic or suffer from a PD, although I suspect he simply has some traits of a PD, but he is in no way schizophrenic, not even as a half serious metaphor.

I just remembered a buried story from 2012, where 2 Virginia Reporters in a car were attacked by a Black Mob, their car stoned, and severely/savagely punched in the face. Black Mob Attacks White Reporters..media blackout

The story was buried for 2 weeks, and the excuse from the Paper was that the savagely beaten Reporters didn't want to report the story or press charges, nor did the paper want to cover the story.

Odd how Reporters getting punched in the face is nothing to even report about, but some Reporter alleging she got a bruise on her arm is National News that ought to derail a Presidential candidate.

More Profiles in Couragelessness:

Reporter Ed Henry and Brett Baire

Brett: Ed, what is the deal with Hillary Clinton apologizing to her base for complementing Nancy Reagan today, the day of this Memorial Service?

Ed Henry: Pretty remarkable. She did a nice thing, she attended the Funeral as we mentioned, but then did an interview with MSNBC and praised the Reagan's for raising Aide's awareness. That raised objections from who Liberals who said that the Reagan's did just the opposite. Normally on the day of a Funeral you would think something like that might just pass, but there was so much pressure from the Left that Hillary Clinton went on Twitter and apologized for praising the Reagan's on that point. We hear a lot about Republicans caving to the Right Wing. This is an example of a Democratic Presidential Candidate caving to the Left Wing.

Miss Marple

I see now Ms Fields says she was a closet Trump supporter ans will be on Megyn Kelly's show tonight because if he would do this to HER, what about others?

I am missing the connection here. Is she accusing Trump of instigating this? Even if Corey did grab her arm, I do not see the need for all this drama.

Except I do not believe for one minute she supported Trump.

Interesting that when you watch the whole segment, you learn that the 2 beaten reporters had to take a whole week off because of their injuries, and we also learn that the 9/11 call the female reporter made to the cops is "harrowing!"

AB and Krauthammer were especially effective

daddy

Still doing catch-up and just got to Narciso's link of Republican Governor Rick Scott of Florida being shut off on Morning Joe because he did not have the balls to answer a straightforward question about Muslim Hatred of America.

Whatever answer Governor Scott has but refuses to give, it is a great example of why iTrump is so refreshing. Trump can actually answer such a question, while almost everybody else either has to shut up, spouts out inane PC platitudes, or so pretzels themselves up in qualifying clauses that their answer becomes oatmeal. Rick Scott just demonstrated to me that he has no business whatever getting within a hundred miles of the Presidency.

Panel is asked for Obama's comments on the Liby SHITshow bing due to the failure of David Cameron.

DrK: It's the usual Obama now we've heard for 7 years. Whenever he encounters a failure, particularly abroad, he blames it on others. The idea that this is a President who expected the Europeans to do the heavy living, in Libya or elsewhere, is ridiculous. Every President since truman has underwood that the Europeans are free riders---that's a fact of the post WW2 era, and you accept that and you deal with it...Obama pretends that he was betrayed by his allies. He was betrayed by his own arrogance and now unwillingness to admit he was wrong.

Miss Marple

Maryrose,

I did not accuse Carly Fiorina of being bought off by Ted Cruz, and I expect you to give Dr. Carson the courtesy of accepting that is who he thinks has the best chance, which is what he said.

You castigated me rightfully for posting only negative stuff about Cruz, and now look what you are posting!

Endorsements are done for a variety of reasons, both political and personal. Having listened to Carson's interview on Cavuto, I can tell you he was not promised a position of any kind and he made his decision based on who had the best chance to win and turn the country around.

Unless, of course, you want to accuse Ben Carson of lying.

Lewandowksi says something to Terris a second or two after whatever happened to Fields occurred. Looks like Terris responds "Yeah, ok." while nodding. Has he reported what Lewendowski said to him?

Just had dinner with 4 transplants to Florida and 2 Bay staters - all in their 70's.

All the men wanted to sit next to me. I was flattered until I realized they all wanted to talk politics. (Perhaps I was then more flattered)

All are voting for Trump Tuesday. (or did 2 weeks ago)

All would be willing to vote for Cruz if he gets the nomination, but all want to make a statement about DC.

They don't think Trump knows what he is doing, or that he understands how to do anything, but they want to make that statement.

The funny thing is Cruz is the guy who wants to fire everyone in DC, and Donald will just go all in on big government. But it's the P-u-C that everyone is after.

Very very interesting.

Oh and they all hate Rubio because he was absent so much. Now they have no idea what, or if there was an impact from that, but they have bought into the meme.

Dreams from the Atlantic's parallel universe:

+ A writer at heart(!!!!), he (Obama) had a suggestion

+ Obama then cited America’s increased influence in Latin America—increased, he said, in part by his removal of a region-wide stumbling block when he reestablished ties with Cuba—as proof that his deliberate, nonthreatening, diplomacy-centered approach to foreign relations is working.

+Just as the leaders of several American allies have found Obama’s leadership inadequate to the tasks before him, he himself has found world leadership wanting: global partners who often lack the vision and the will to spend political capital in pursuit of broad, progressive goals, and adversaries who are not, in his mind, as rational as he is. Obama believes that history has sides, and that America’s adversaries—and some of its putative allies—have situated themselves on the wrong one, a place where tribalism, fundamentalism, sectarianism, and militarism still flourish. What they don’t understand is that history is bending in his direction.

+ George W. Bush was also a gambler, not a bluffer. He will be remembered harshly for the things he did in the Middle East. Barack Obama is gambling that he will be judged well for the things he didn’t do.

Facepalm from my parallel universe...

The Infamous Ignatz

This Lewandowski thing is fascinating to me for some reason. Hey, at least I'm on topic.
Here is a David French article at NRO that misrepresents things fairly thoroughly but the interesting thing is the embedded video.
It starts with the Cspan video already seen but switches to a different one about way through. At the 35-45 second mark you can see the principles and actually see Fields look like she gets tugged sideways, but you can't see by whom. Lewandowski and the SS guy reappear together.
The really interesting thing is when they do you can quite clearly see WaPo's Ben Terris talking to Lewandowski and L talking back.

Here is Terris's original account of the event.
He is at best a really bad writer and his coverage of what occurred reflects that. Interestingly he nowhere mentions his conversation with Lewandowsski only a second or two after the event.

Here even TPM questions the guy's journalistic ethics.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Anyone know why Lewandowksi apologized for assaulting Fields before he denied it?--

Jane,
If you're talking about the alleged statement Lewandowski made to Boyle at Breitbart regarding the incident, Boyle has already confirmed that the story at the Daily Beast claiming this, was a complete fabrication and the two hadn't spoken for weeks about anything, let alone about the incident.

Jane

I wonder what the impact, if any, will be of this event in Illinois? Will people decide Trump is too dangerous to elect?

The former PM of Canada read this at Nancy Reagan's funeral.

I can't even imagine being loved that much: I hope the rest of you can.

Ronald Reagan’s Christmas Letter To Nancy Reagan In 1981

Dear Mrs. R,
I still don’t feel right about you opening an envelope instead of a gift package.
There are several much beloved women in my life and on Christmas, I should be giving them gold, precious stones, perfume, furs and lace. I know that even the best of these would still fall far short of expressing how much these several women mean to me and how empty my life would be without them.

There is of course my “First Lady.” She brings so much grace and charm to whatever she does that even stuffy, formal functions sparkle and turn into fun times. Everything is done with class. All I have to do is wash up and show up.

There is another woman in my life who does things I don’t always get to see but I do hear about them and sometimes see photos of her doing them. She takes an abandoned child in her arms on a hospital visit. The look on her face only the Madonna could match. The look on the child’s face is one of adoration. I know because I adore her too.

She bends over a wheelchair or bed to touch an elderly invalid with tenderness and compassion just as she fills my life with warmth and love.

There is another gal I love who is a nest builder. If she were stuck three days in a hotel room she’d manage to make it home sweet home. She moves things around – looks at it straightens this and that — and you wonder why it wasn’t that way in the first place.

I’m also crazy about the girl who goes to the ranch with me. If we’re tidying up the woods, she’s a peewee power house at pushing over dead trees. She’s a wonderful person to sit by the fire with, or to ride with or first to be with when the sun goes down or the stars come out. If she ever stopped going to the ranch I’d stop too because I’d see her in every beauty spot there is and I couldn’t stand that.

Then there is a sentimental lady I love whose eyes fill up so easily. On the other hand she loves to laugh and her laugh is like tinkling bells. I hear those bells and feel good all over even if I tell a joke she’s heard before.

Fortunately, all these women in my life are you – fortunately for me that is, for there could be no life for me without you. Browning asked; “How do I love thee – let me count the ways?” For me there is no way to count. I love the whole gang of you – Mommie, first lady, the sentimental you, the fun you, and the peewee power house you.

And oh yes, one other very special you – the little girl who takes a “nana” to bed in case she gets hungry in the night. I couldn’t and don’t sleep well if she isn’t there – so please always be there.
Merry Christmas you all – with all my love.
Lucky me.
