Hah, Weiner was sexting a 15 yo since January. Huma may break Hilligula's lamp throwing records at this rate.

rich, yes

Hillary will be using poor black children as props today in Orlando.

Here's the latest I can find on Rahami's family travels:

Mother: As for the suspect’s mother, New York Daily News reports that Najiba Rahami, went on a trip to Turkey three weeks ago, and she has not yet returned to America.---Daily Mail said she was heading to Pakistan.

Wife: Rahami’s wife left America a few days ago on a trip to her native country of Pakistan. Mrs. Rahami was halted by officials during a stopover in the United Arab Emirates

1 Brother: Mohammad Khan has not been arrested or charged and it is unclear if he is currently in the United States. Social media suggests that he had split his time between New Jersey and Pakistan and Afghanistan.

2nd Brother: His older brother Qasim is believed to have returned to Afghanistan

3rd Brother(?) Hard to tell if there is a 3rd brother since 2 of them are named Mohammed.

1 Sister: at Rutgers

2nd Sister: appears to have lived in Quetta, Pakistan with her husband and young children, although again it is unclear if she remains there.

Isn't that illegal for Weiner?
DebinNC:
Will the children hold her up if she falls or takes a header?
She needs all the props she can get.

Trump was asked about the police shootings and gave what I think was a pitch perfect answer.

Finished up with a woman pastor ON FIRE who said he "was raised up for such a time as this."

That was an amazing event, all the way around.

henry

mr, that's illegal for anyone

Miss Marple 2, Deplorable and Proud of it

The left is now attacking Don King on Twitter, pointing out his past criminal record, which he does not hide.

What disgusting people they are.

Miss Marple 2, Deplorable and Proud of it

I was also struck by Pastor Scott's discussion of a "Satanic attack" against Trump and how the democrats tried to stop him from having this event.

The next month and a half are going to be very difficult. I had better get over my snit at the Pope and get back to church.

daddy

Something metallic sounding is now continually banging away on the side of the house whenever the wind blows. Oh well, what you gonna' do. That's part of the fun of living up here.

henry

I'm sure gutters were nice when you still had them daddy

the generalisticly deplorable rich

good grief.

This Filipino President is growing on me:


F#$% You, EU!

good grief ... so, so gross.

I've got an idea, lets put them all back in power and find out how gross they all are.

henry

Future majority leader Schumer's former aide rich. It is all of them, either directly or abetting.

DebinNC

Reuters on Israel anti-protest "weapon":

"Imagine taking a chunk of rotting corpse from a stagnant sewer, placing it in a blender and spraying the filthy liquid in your face. Your gag reflex goes off the charts and you can't escape, because the nauseating stench persists for days. ... This is "skunk", a fearsome but non-lethal tool in Israel's arsenal of weapons for crowd control. It comes in armored tanker trucks fitted with a cannon that can spray a jet of stinking fluid over crowds who know how to cope with plain old tear gas."

The "nauseating stench persists for days"? I wish LE here would buy it by the ton.

Deb, Charlotte">https://twitter.com/MBarberWSOC9/status/778583048233164805">Charlotte protestors planning to go to the suburbs. Be aware.

oops... the Charlotte suburbs protest link

Daddy, do you have a stove vent exiting your house? Could be flapping in the wind.

Thanks for the warning, henry. Our youngest and her husband live just off I-85 in Belmont ~10 mi west of Charlotte and 1/2 mi. from a Walmart SuperStore. Yikes!

the idea of going into the nice areas of Charlotte is getting a lot of push back in the comments.

henry's on the case.

henry

rich, it is the escalation they need for martial law

JM Hanes

Thomas Collins:

”Hillary wants to go down in history as being sworn in as the first female POTUS, thus breaking that glass ceiling…. The plan is just to get her through to inauguration day.”

Hillary and her supporters will doubtlessly be burnishing up that broken glass "legacy" from day one, but I've always thought that's more sales pitch than driver. The press barely noticed that upon Hillary's precipitous resignation from the State Dept., the very first thing she did was hire a persoanl lawyer. That seemed like a big tell to me.

At this point, I think she's determined to make it to inaugurationn day, even if she has to crawl over the threshold, because that's her only guaranteed, permanent get-out-of-jail-free card. It's the only way the Clinton syndicate can keep the money they've sucked up, and protect the influence peddling scams that produce(d) it. If Hillary goes down, the Foundation goes down, and the knives will come out, politically, legally, personally and financially. The Clintons have made a lot of enemies along the way, folks who will only hold their tongues as long as it looks like Hillary might still end up with the power to crush them.

nothing would surprise me at this point. think I mentioned it before, but this is starting to feel like a coup.

if Mecklenburg County and the state political officials are smart they'll send in a heavy Nat Guard MP battalion and a Highway Patrol division. Be heavy handed, the alternative is only worse.

This is a fascinating Reddit thread in which most of the posters are from outside the US and are complaining about how biased their media is (except Eastern Europe).

Well worth reading to get a feel for how Europeans are seeing this election. Also fascinating that so many are following it and rooting for Trump!

I wasn't aware of this but you guys probably were:

"The 28-year-old’s brother Mohammad and sister, Aziza, have also posted pro-ISIS material on Facebook supporting the so called caliphate and renouncing democracy."

JM Hanes

daddy!

I assume you're battened down and won't do anything foolish! I'm jealous of your weather map (complete with topo and roll-over explanations, no less). Our forecast comes out of Raleigh, which makes do with a pathetic little line drawing. I could be missing something, of course, but we seem to have a different set of options.

To see what's going on (or at least was going on 10 minutes ago), I use the Blacksburg radar, or, my fav, the National Mosaic animations. For those who aren't familiar with it, you can increase the size of the whole thing by increasing the font size. If you click on the area you're from it will take you to the nearest local radar (a la Blacksburg). If you click on the local radar map it will zoom you in.

Hmm... Looks like in Toledo Trump will speak on a stage alone with flags but no people behind.

Thomas Collins

I think your explanation as primary motivational aspect is more plausible than mine, JMH. But perhaps they are related. In addition to Oligarch Media's bias towards Dems, Oligarch Media would be reluctant to go after the breaker of the glass ceiling during and after the time that The Hill is POTUS.

rse

henry--that anger against suburbs turns out to be part of MLK's real vision as today's post lays out. http://invisibleserfscollar.com/chocolate-cities-strangled-by-white-nooses-hacking-out-the-rights-of-the-citizen/

That is two separate quotes juxtaposed but MLK did say both.

henry

rse, sure. that's why all govt plans include "regionalizing" the suburbs back into central city control.

daddy

Miss M,

I can personally vouch that in Europe there is no bit of News on the local channels that paints Trump as anything other than a bigoted racist and the second coming of Adolf or Mussolini. Even in India, where you might expect he'd get a fair hearing due to his concern with Islamic terror, he gets nothing but the standard CNN smears, simply regurgitated by India media in the local languages with the ticker underneath in English.

What I have noticed tho' is that unlike in previous elections where the European bookstores prominently displayed Obama's and Michael Moore's repulsive offerings like yard signs in their windows, this election season there's none of that. Hillary's "Hard Choices" has been out long enough that everyone knows its dishonest, unreadable, and unsellable, so tho' there' nothing visible promoting Trump in any way, there's nothing promoting Hillary either, which to me signals a big change from their standard practice in the past. Even Europe knows she's repulsive.

James D

Deb @ 12:28

I note that the WaPo just HAS to put "Black man" in the headline.

I am no big fan of law enforcement or prosecutors, and i do think that a LOT needs to be done to fix the way police are hired, trained, supervised and held accountable.

But this BLM garbage does NONE of that. All it does is stoke racial division and hatred, while ignoring the real problems that do need to be addressed, and that do impact citizens of all races.

The WaPo article notes that 697 people have been shot and killed by police this year, 172 of them black men. So according to BLM, and the WaPo, and apparently our President and the Democrat party, those other 525 people just don't count? They don't matter? THEY deserved what they got?

I am so sick of this. It's NOT about race! It's not about the police "hunting" young black men! And every story that pushes that narrative does more harm to everyone, not that the authors or those who profit from BLM care.

But we can survive four eight years of Hilligula, wingnutz!

James D

Also re: the Tulsa shooting - here's a solution:

If it's shown to be a bad shooting, an unwarranted one, that the officer overreacted, or panicked, or whatever, then she should be fired and stripped of her pension...and so should whoever signed off on the decision to hire her, and also whoever signed off on passing her through the police academy.

THERE'S your accountability.

Miss Marple 2, Deplorable and Proud of it

Deb, thanks for the links! I forgot to go look for the Toledo event. Much appreciated.

rse and henry,

Indianapolis has had a joint county-city government for some time. Back in the 70's, Mayor Richard Lugar (later a senator) establiished something called Unigov. The way he got around objections was to allow the suburban school systems to remain outside of the Indianapolis Public School System. We have 8 township school systems surrounding the massive IPS district, which is increasingly turning out poor students at higher cost than the townships.

The other thing that has remained separate is the division between the County Sheriff and the head of the Indianapolis Police Department, I think because the sheriff is elected but the police chief is appointed. Both report to the mayor, though.

Things have remained pretty much this way since the 70's. However, we have another democrat mayor after having 8 years of a good Republican one, and I fear there will be more of a push to blend the schools and push out into the outlying counties. I have already seen complaints that the outer suburbs should share in costs of downtown amenities since they commute to downtown.

jimmyk

Any other Dem nominee than HC, and we'd be hearing about the evil Trump Foundation 24/7.

My impression is the opposite: Outlets like the WaPo are flogging the evil Trump Foundation to try to distract from the corruption of the Clinton Foundation. Like this guy for example:

Shooting of unarmed Tulsa man clouded by video seeming to show car window he supposedly reached through for a possible weapon was rolled up. Oh boy

Janet

THe Washington Post is a disgrace.

henry

the outer suburbs should share in costs of downtown amenities since they commute to downtown.

that is a classic. I should be taxed for the Brewer's stadium (a tax that was supposed to sunset by now), the Bucks new arena (the state made them stuff that one), the trolley, and of course something like 80% of the Milwaukee Public Schools budget (local property tax is redistributed across the state) while Milwaukee claims "home rule" on anything else. femall

henry

Plus the commute is suburb to suburb. Downtown is pretty empty these days.

jimmyk

Bob Owens has been all over Twitter on the Tulsa thing, making the point that when a cop says "Put your hands up!" and instead you reach down toward your waist, you are very likely going to get shot. For example:

Any truth to the rumor that Cankles has adopted Tom Petty's 'Free Falling' as her campaign theme?

Not sure Beasts, new Marquette poll is now out (can't find a link). SS Cankles barely leading Trump in WI right now (likely voters). Ah,updated link. Hilligula now +2.

Don't know about "Free Falling", BoE, but per Lyle's link it sounds like Bono is hard at work on her behalf. Maybe he can fire up the crowd with "She Moves in Mysterious Ways".

Under a blood red sky, of course.

What's the perception here of The Bush family comments on whether President GHW Bush is voting for Hillary?

Profiles in Courage?
Profiles in Cowardice?
Neutral?

Mine is that it is another example that GHW Bush never learned anything from his predecessor, and explains why he was a 1 Termer. That may be unfair, but that' my knee-jerk reaction. Good riddance Bush's.

I am in the Shanahan Theater where we're expecting DJT soon.

Have spent the last half hour being interviewed by a Japanese newspaper-man, in the states to learn about DJT.

When it was announced DJT's plane had landed, and that he'd be here soon, a ROAR broke out.

Hayward quotes Hadley Arkes:

Perhaps the only thing that can rescue Trump at this moment is that expectation that he will be working hand-in-hand with Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to enact that Republican program, beginning with the repeal of Obamacare, the reduction of taxes, the scaling back of regulations. But all of this would require Trump to meet with Congressional leaders and convey those central points. And yes, for Trump that would require a self-effacement as uncommon as it is wrenching: the confession that the election is finally about something more than himself.

I believe Mr. Arkes is in good company with all Top. Men. But he's pretty out of touch if he thinks those two actually give a shit about the "Republican program." They're members of the Uniparty© first.

DebinNC

Poppy never got over losing to Reagan in the primaries even though he was brought on the ticket to benefit from two huge landslides. Once he was elected President he served in such a slapdash manner that Perot ran to give people who Bush infuriated someone to support; which ended up giving Slick the win. Just a horrible person who surrounded himself with vipers as narc has pointed out.
