Dershowitz: Trump Wins Presidency if Hillary Moves to ‘Kooky Left’

Anyone know how much money Dersh won from BeanTown Taxpayers, for slipping on his ass on the wet toilet floor of the Boston Garden?

Good night, everyone!

Cap'n Gus tee shirts; I love it!

That Weekly Standard piece explains why Noot was so upbeat today while the perfectly named Mook had a nervous smile on his youthful mug. His unlikeable harridan candidate squandered an opportunity to put some distance between her and Trump before he fired back this week with a shot across the garbage scow's bow that had Levin more enthusiastic than talking about any GOP candidate since Reagan. And that's only the beginning.

Rodham can only respond with the Uncle Leo "I'm an old woman and can't help myself" while her surrogates think OMG. The HMS Mumu is taking on more water than she's retaining. There has to be some serious gripping going on as Slick removes all the lamps and ashtrays.

daddy,

I now spend much of my day with the TV off.

I only turn it on for an important speech or breaking important news (teror attacks as opposed to loose llamas).

Then the makers of Viagra (New Single Packs!!!) have certainly lost money on you Miss Marple, as they've run at least 89 new Viagra ads on the Baseball Channels since I've been home from my last trip:)

They're back to using the blonde model again, so obviously they're racist.

Now that I have finally caught up it is Dog Walk time. Cheerio.

BTW, should be some decent campus chow at CalTech this week, as the LIGO bunch think that as a by-product of the detection of the 2nd set of Gravitational waves, they may have discovered Dark Matter!

"We're not going to bet the house. It's a plausibility argument."

Further 30 solar-mass collisions would shore up the suggestion according to co-author and postdoctoral fellow Ely D. Kovetz.

"That the discovery of gravitational waves could be connected to dark matter" is creating lots of excitement.

Go ahead. Bet the House!

On the dog walk. Top of the hour news on ABC radio is all Hillary, and story number 3 is. the sound bite iofMitch McConell refusing to say that Trump is qualified to be President. Great job Mitch, George Will is proud of u.

daddy and fry  and scout

1st story was New poll showing HillRy way ahead and then reading the big percentage numbers that believe Trump is biased against women and Muslims. Story 4 was sound bites of Jesse Jackson hollering about Gun violence and somehow ties that into Repubs and photo ID trying to stop minorities voting.

All Left, all Hillary, all the time.

Daddy, BITCH McCakeHole, cannot possibly be unaware of what he sounds like. I've said it for YEARS. The GOP loves being the LOSING COACH at the SUPER BOWL. Bitch McCakeHole was HAPPIER when ONE EYED JERK HARRY REID was the MAJORITY LEADER. McCakeHole had less heavy lifting to do.
I have NEVER EVER considered myself a REPUBLICAN, because KRISTOL and GEORGE WILL and BITCH McCakeHole HAVE considered themselves Republicans.
I am voting for TRUMP, and TRUMP has exposed these MOTHER F(redacted) more than anyone else in history. The GOP is more afraid of TRUMP than they are of RODHAM. THE GOPe, has no interest in losing POWER, and their POWER is being LOSERS and controlling the GOPe JUST THE SAME.

DrJ

Well, I asked my father about the Kennedy/jelly donut quote some years ago. He is a Berliner through and through, and he was a staunch anti-communist, so he was no lover of Democrats. In fact, he despised them.

He thought Kennedy's quote was fine, with no "jelly donut" overtones.

GUS, story 2 was Whte Supremicist violence in Sacramento at some protest. No mention of who beat who, nor any arrests.

Take away is that racists, probably Trump supporters, caused the problem. That story followed the story saying voters largely think Trump is a racist and it preceeeed the story of Mitch refusing to say Trumps qualified to be Pres, followed by Jesse Jackaon on 2nd Amendment loonies and Repub efforts to suppress Black voters, Hardly had time to mention a Singapore air emergency landing before cutting to a commercial break. Orchestrated good as Goebels

I've been trying to figure out who the involved parties were and who prompted what at the "scuffle" in Sacramento. It is hard to tell from the local reporting. The national reporting is even worse.

daddy and fry  and scout on iPhone

DrJ,

It was all used simply to smear Trump. No facts whatever---just a marriage of the words "White Supremacists", "violence", and Trump the racist.

I really do have to admire ABC News though. It was a marvelously flawless bit of propaganda put together seamlessly, and by finishing with the quick factual blurb of the factual Singapore plane emergency, the average brain would unconsciiously absorb the "Trump is a Racist" meme without reflection, because they finished with a bit of fact that caught ones attention. The average. brain would then subconsciously think everything they just absorbed was factual. It really was beautiful put together. Wish our side did that..

Theo

No, it was not his accent. In Germany, people in the country would ask for a jelly donut of a certain style that was made popular in Berlin. Quite naturally, this style of jelly donut became known as a "Berliner." The people of Berlin never referred to themselves as "Berliners" (I am not sure how they did refer to themselves). So when JFK said, in reasonably passable German "I am a Berliner" it caused the crowd to titter, not because of his accent, but because in idiomatic terms, he was saying "I am a jelly donut."

DrJ

daddy,

It really was beautiful put together. Wish our side did that.

Sure, conservatives can run such a thing on one of their many television stations or in their plethora of newspapers.

BeenThereDoneThat

Talk about pure propaganda, there's nothing in this story that is factual. Nothing! It's all bent and twisted and pulled sideways, to give the reader the perception the good guys were the bad guys...

I was thinking on the Dog Walk that there is a huge opportunity, if Trump picks the right VP candidate, for that Candidate to give one hell of a speech at the Convention about why this Election is of such monumental importance, and why elite snots like George Will and Bill Krystal should go straight to Hell and stay there. I'm still mulling over the particulars, but I just came across Roger Simon's latest piece going after George Will, and it's a decent start:

Why George Will's Moral Narcissism Matters

Roger Simon says that George Will said this as his latest reason for leaving the Party:

Obviously feeling embarrassment (he should), Will now asserts his real reason for departing the Republican Party was Trump's attack on the Latino judge.

Seriously? That's it? Trump said something crude but honest about a La Raza affiliated Hispanic Judge? Seriously? And that's from the same guy that I quoted yesterday who said this: The multiplicity of Republican rationalizations for their refusal to even consider Merrick Garland radiates insincerity."

Geebus, George, take a hike, and take your "Moral Superiority" blanket with you.

Jack is Back!

daddy,

In the UK, the political, cultural and financial elites are not prepared to give up. They are not just pushing for a "redo" [even though most of the pettion are fraud] but also inside sabotage by getting their own candidate into the PM race.

Like with Trump it is truly turning into a "civil war" between the elite, globalist establishment and those on the margins that kind of leadership and aspiration has created.

Unfortunately, it attracts the crazies and extremists on both sides and of course they get all the press.

Buckeye

Hmmm,

Maybe the split in Britain will lead to a revolution.

Oh, I forgot. The people got strongarmed into turning in their firearms years ago.

Free James D

Re JiB's point:

One argument that out side doesn't make strongly enough (and that Trump is very well placed to hammer the Dems on) is that it's not "merely" a matter of the elites being disconnected with and dismissive of the people they wish to rule over.

They're also simply incompetent at it on their own terms. And they absolutely refuse to be accountable or to take responsibility for their failures, ever.

What do all these things have in common?

The Snowden debacle
The OPM hack
The EPA poisoning that river
Benghazi
The disastrous Obamacare rollout
The endless carnage in Syria
ISIS terror attacks
The needless deaths of VA patients and subsequent cover-up of same
The IRS targeting of innocent citizens

There has been NO one held accountable in any way for any of them. Not one person has been fired demoted, reprimanded or suffered ANY consequences of any kind.

If you want to be an elite and make decisions for the rest of us, that means you pay a cost when you screw up, and people get their identities stolen, or their water poisoned, or die waiting for life-saving surgery that you couldn't arrange because you had other priorities.

It's really not complicated.

Captain Hate

Martin O'Malley, a lowlife piece of mick trash who doubled down on being a horrible governor by being a joke of a presidential candidate, is apparently assigned to be Zippy and Rodham's attack gerbil on CNN's low ratings bonanza in the first of daddy's last links. Jan Brewer is 100% right, and backed up by Ken Cuccinelli, that 404 makes everything about race (and him) to deflect from his and Granny's failed policies which have displaced Muslim vermin flocking to every western country.

The country clubbers keep feeding them material with full occupancy fainting couches so, once again, well done Repukes.

MM-there is a lot of discussion by the political elites and their fundees in the behavioral sciences research that includes ed globally about how to control people without recognition of the extent of the coercion.

So china and ussr were not really valid attempts at marx's vision because they were created on an agricultural base and not an industrial, technologically advanced base. Secondly, the people recognized the extent to which their lives were controlled and manipulated.

This time is supposed to be different, but it is sickening how often I have come across someone commenting on the problems once people recognize they are being coerced. Given the age discrepancies in who voted for brexit, it appears the older generation recognized the coercion and the young generation simply accepts circumscribed choices as desired Statist coddling that makes them feel safe and secure.

MM @ 7:54

Here's the third paragraph of that article:

On Friday, Farage called that claim a "mistake." (Kudos to the incredulous TV reporter who then followed up: "Do you think there are other things people will wake up this morning and find out aren't going to happen as a result of voting this way?")

(REDACTED) the WaPo and the writer of this particular article and the editor who let it be published.

Did the WaPo or any of its reporters EVER display any incredulousness towards Obama? Or follow up questions about what else "might not happen" after he was elected?

I'd say they can all go die in a fire, but that would be far too quick and too merciful for them.

Also re crappy, dishonest, elitist screed that MM linked, here's the one-line bio of the author:

Emily Badger is a reporter for Wonkblog covering urban policy. She was previously a staff writer at The Atlantic Cities.

Wonkblog, which of course was Ezra Klein's creation, so we know all we need to know right there.

I probably shouldn't follow any of these links (or the horrific and yet totally unsurprising link Janet posted @ 8:06) first thing in the morning. It's too upsetting. I need to watch my blood pressure.

I posted Ms. Badger's article because it shows how these Millennials think. It's akin to that guy who went "exploring" in Kansas because he couldn't understand why Kansans would vote against their own self-interest.

I emailed our County Board about WHO WROTE the resolution & got back a long reply, that didn't answer the question, from Dorcey (who introduced the resolution).

So I wrote him back ...

Mr. Dorsey,
Thank you for responding. Just to clarify, I understand that you introduced the resolution, but did you write it?
Who wrote the resolution?

I watched the County Board meeting (6-21-16) & saw the speakers from the New Virginia Majority organization. Did that organization write the resolution?

I got this short response from Mr. Dorsey -

"I wrote the resolution with substantive feedback and edits from other Board members and staff.

Representatives from New Virginia majority did provide input in advance of my first draft."

I don't know why we even have elected government officials when Progressive organizations are essentially writing & implementing laws now.

Obamacare, EPA with all the enviro. groups, & on down to the local level. :(

more on the stabbing story - http://reason.com/blog/2016/06/26/anti-fascist-leader-very-proud-of-white

"At least five people were stabbed in a statehouse skirmish between members of the white-nationalist Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP) and "anti-fascist" activists from a group called By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). The white-power group had gotten a permit and was demonstrating in front of the California capitol. BAMN members came brandishing wooden bats and shouting "fuck fascists. Beat the fascists. Beat them." One member Yvette Felarca told CNN she was "very, very proud" of the counter-protest that had produced such violence."

JM Hanes

An interesting comment by “Caedmon” at Neo-neocon:

A great driver of the Leave vote was resentment against immigration from the EU, not from outside it. It is about Labour Protectionism, not xenophobia.


Labour Protectionism may be futile (that is a matter for the economists) but it is not irrational. East Europeans are generally liked and admired for their work ethic, but the view in the provinces is that there are only so many jobs to go around, and a Pole behind the wheel of a builder’s van means a British lad on the dole.

An observation tellingly confirmed this morning by The Guardian
After a spate of alleged xenophobic incidents over the weekend, the Polish embassy issued a statement expressing its shock and deep concern.

Reported incidents included graffiti sprayed on to the walls of a west London Polish community centre and cards reading “no more Polish vermin” posted through letterboxes.

So no one asks were these companies all overvalued four days ago, if so why?

Old Lurker

All the economic doom predictions are merely symptoms of the disease of extreme nearsightedness that has contributed to the decline of Western Values.

Most of the reporting both here and over there is about the impact on stock prices TODAY or the impact on some export TODAY or the impact of some other transition matter TODAY. In business the skewed view is all about stock price and earnings this quarter with less focus on investment that will pay off over the long term than ever before.

The cancer now killing us has been metastasizing for a century if you measure from Wilson and WWI, and it cannot be corrected in anything but "the long term", and pretending otherwise is to invite disappointment.

It remains to be seen if we have the collective will to truly change direction and avoid the cliff.

--In business the skewed view is all about stock price and earnings this quarter with less focus on investment that will pay off over the long term than ever before.--

This sounds pretty disturbing, no? Trump Embraces Executive Orders to Avoid Congressional Gridlock. Except that it ends up reading like a Trump campaign leaflet, citing promises Trump has made which are, in fact, all well within traditional executive powers — with the possible exception of canceling the Paris climate accord which, as a non-treaty, never saw the light of day in Congress in the first place.

BLM is claiming they have 2000 people being bused in and another 6-8000 arriving by car.

Let them stay with the black robed tyrant and AllCriminalsLoveUs who are more concerned with those lowlifes ability to destroy a peaceable society than people who follow the rules. The sooner those bastards get put on the financial hook for everything which happens from their witlessness the sooner common sense returns.
