Diz Warren is such an alpha hotel her colleagues refer to her legendary outburst which prompted Tortuga McConnell to gob smack her as " 'roid rage."

"professional grass killer"

Is that the same thing as "buzz kill"


"Can you imagine having the likes of Warren in the Senate for a long time because she comes from a prog state like Kennedy and is a woman also?

She is so immature and her behavior during the Sessions hearings bordered on the bizarre."

You have described her to a T. I suppose we're stuck with her. Better that she's a Senator and not the President.

On this "nasty woman" meme that the left seem so enamored with, I just can't understand it. I think it sets a bad image for young girls and women today. I've never held with the view that women have to give up their femininity or class to be heard or accepted. Oh I'm not saying that I don't get angry at things from time to time and let it fly, but that's in private - especially when Shep or Chris Wallace are on Fox. I try to keep that in bounds too because it really does me no good and they can't hear me anyway.

One of the things that I'm hoping comes about in the next four years is the beginning of an end to the personal rancor that we've seen growing at an accelerated pace in the last two decades. People don't just disagree, they seem to want to demolish the opposition both professionally and personnally. I don't know how we change it especially with snakes in the grass like McCain and Schummer setting the bar so low, but it must be done. We can't continue with a nation so divided.


When the co-ed at Pitzer filed the complaint against our Dad, she called him "creepy", and she said that he had "touched her" in an unwelcome manner. Big deal, he did that to us too.


The one person who can get Warren out of the Senate is Curt Schilling. The only thing liberals in MA like more than asshole politicians is sports stars.

Kushner Omitted Meeting With Russians on Security Clearance Forms

While officials can lose access to intelligence, or worse, for failing to disclose foreign contacts, the forms are often amended to address lapses. Jamie Gorelick, Mr. Kushner’s lawyer, said that the questionnaire was submitted prematurely on Jan. 18, and that the next day, Mr. Kushner’s office told the F.B.I. that he would provide supplemental information.

Mr. Kushner’s aides said he was compiling that material and would share it when the F.B.I. interviewed him. For now, they said, he has an interim security clearance.

In a statement, Ms. Gorelick said that after learning of the error, Mr. Kushner told the F.B.I.: “During the presidential campaign and transition period, I served as a point-of-contact for foreign officials trying to reach the president-elect. I had numerous contacts with foreign officials in this capacity. … I would be happy to provide additional information about these contacts.” No names were disclosed in that correspondence.

Posted to the wrong thread, and citing the wrong person.:(

I've got 28 tabs open at the moment.

I've had no problem on Firefox with narcisolator, which includes extraneus's version of killfile, in which you just click on the "Posted by" to "kill" a commenter.

However, I don't know where the code is obtainable any more, other than by e-mail if someone asks me for it.


Can I help?


You have to block every name individually. Clicking "Hide" does not take much work.




Thanks drj.

Old Lurker

Mom "do I have to block every name individually?"

Yes you have to Hush each new troll name you see. (would be great if they killed the troll's IP address wouldn't it!) But the good news is they carry on to the next thread.


Thx for the primer dudes, dudette

Have a nice Day.


Oops! Make that "Hush" instead of Hide." You can always "unhush" a person, or view a particular comment if you so wish.

So, for example, if you generally don't like what I post, you can hush me. If I set off a storm with a particular comment, you can always see what idiocy I've written to see what set it off.

Old Lurker

Never you, DrJ...

How much of a strategic dunce is Schoooomer? By going full hair on fire against Gorsuch, who a lot of non-mythical moderate donks thought was ok to replace Scalia (and who probably has a better chance of turning into another Roberts, Souter (ugh) or Earl Warren (quadrupel ugh) than adhering to Antonin), he created no good will to employ if Ruth Buzzi Ginsberg stops stealing Gaia's oxygen and a conservative replacement will absolutely shift the balance.

Jim Eagle


Had to run and get some tonic water for Mrs. JiB's G&T and forgot to give you Black Lives Matter in Latin:

Nigrum Vita Res

If McKesson was smart (hey he went to Bowdoin, right) he would change all their signs to that and confuse the police.

But then they can do Pepsi commercials with a girl in a toga going up to the cop and saying: "Caeruleum est vita" But that is not a correct translation since it means Blue Lives like in sad. If memory serves me correct Blue the color is "hyacinthum".


Is the Kill File the same as the Narcisolator?

I suppose if you blog on a number of sites it would be useful. I only blog here, so I use the Avatars as a way of 'screening' comments by trolls or those that I may not be interested in reading. There are a few shared Avatars, and on those occasions the first sentence of the comment will usually ID the blogger. In this way, I can screen what I read pretty quickly, and I don't miss out on anything that may be useful or interesting (e.g. a link to a another website or story).

No, they are not the same.

killfile is a simple Chrome plugin.

bgates wrote the narcisolator to accomplish two things. The first is to block viewing of troll's comments; you have to maintain a list of known trolls to do so.

The other was to clean up narciso's posts back when he composed in Word and copied and pasted into the text box. That often gave strange formatting results.

It relies on a slightly more complicated infrastructure, since it requires the tampermonkey or greasemonkey plugins in addition to the narcisolator script. But it does work with all browsers as long as one can run TM or GM.

I only wish our trolls were as dedicated as the Quality Assurance Audit team on a Nuclear Reactor site.

Their MO is to 1) Fly in, 2) Drink all the coffee, 3) Ask question, write a report requiring numerous time consuming irrelevant answer, then 4) Leave after shitting all over the place.

I feel its deja vu again.


Posted to the wrong thread ... hjta is trying to gin up opposition to the stupidity known as the CA Dem legislature. There's actually a fair number of decent folk in CA. No organized leadership tho. And plenty of confirmed prog doofuses.

For all us Californians consider subscribing to the 2 or 3 email per week newsletters from HJTA.org.

Taxpayers respond to massive $52 billion, dark of night, attack on California drivers
"Increasing the gas tax by 43% and raising the car tax is another blow to already struggling working Californians. This is money that will come out of the budgets of families who can least afford it. Sacramento has lost its way. Clearly the arrogant politicians would prefer to spend nearly $100 billion on a bullet train than fix the roads, unless they are paid an additional “bribe” in the form of a $52 billion tax increase.”


"...Gorsuch, who a lot of non-mythical moderate donks thought was ok to replace Scalia (and who probably has a better chance of turning into another Roberts, Souter (ugh) or Earl Warren (quadrupel ugh) than adhering to Antonin)..."

Captain at 5:39 PM


That's my concern as well. I'm still troubled by that plaid tie he wore on the night that President Trump announced his nomination to replace Justice Scalia. I have to wonder if the President was reminding Gorsuch of the significance of this appointment by having Justice Scalia's widow present in the front row both that evening and on the night of his speech to the Joint Session of Congress.

I wish him well, but I hope he doesn't have a creative streak in him like Roberts and Kennedy have shown in two very important decisions.


narcisolator also hides the avatar boxes, if no one mentioned that yet.

Well, it does that even if someone already mentioned it. :-)

I think that the intelligence agencies no longer providing blackmail information will sort of stop that stuff.

I see no reason to believe Gorsuch, who has along and distinguished record for following the Constitution, would suddenly go rogue.

Moonbeam Brown and his miscreant legislative baboons have lost their minds. Not only is the gas tax going up:

"Drivers would also face a new annual fee to be paid with their vehicle registration, ranging from $25 to $175 depending on the value of their vehicle. The taxes and fees would rise each year with inflation."

Former Governor Gray "AstroChimp" Davis was recalled over vehicle reg fees.

But all is forgotten with the promises of $52 billion more in graft coming out of our pockets.

Yet, the Gov waxes before baying at the moon:

"Tonight we did something," Brown told reporters in a hallway news conference outside his office. There's real money and people can afford it...It helps bring jobs. It helps bring prosperity."


You'd actually feel the emotion SHAME, if true clarice?

Kev, we have a gas tax battle here in WI. Walker says no, but the Assembly Leader wants to spend, spend, spend! Robin Vos wants to raise the gas tax, he is holding everything else up to get his way. Meanwhile, the WISDOT could stop wasting money and eliminate the need for a tax increase. The whole thing has me surly.

Note: Robin Vos held my beer when I go my photo with Walker during the recall. Literally held my half full Spotted Cow. Then he redistrictedme out of his district, but given the courts invalidated redistricting maybe I'm back in.

In Indiana you pay 12.50 for the plates and an excise tax depending on the year and model of the car.

It decreases every year as your car ages. My 2001 Jeep only cost me $25.00 total. HA!

I think the most you pay for something like a new Cadillac is $200.00

He's going to lose a lot more, because he tweeted today that the MSM accusing him of abandoning Trump is "fake news."

There was no doubt in his tweet last night that he was done with Trump. I assume his effort to walk it back today was financial.

He's young and emotional, I understand that. However, he has a lot of followers and should be more responsible and thoughtful when covering events.

He's going to learn a hard lesson. Many people followed him because he supported Trump. I know I did. Well, turnabout is fair play and all that.

I saw Alex Jones was walking back his hysteria from last night, too.

I don't know why I should support an internet semi-celebrity over my president.

I can understand your viewpoint but the ME is in turmoil in large part because Zippy decided to bug out and created a huge power vacuum which was quickly filled with bad actors. The world is a safer place when we have a presence in the ME. It doesn't have to be nation building so much as helping the people we like stomp the ISIS bugs.

The question is who is to be boss.

OK, I don't like the term 'alt-right' because the Clinton campaign made it up.

One air strike at an airfield in Iraq doesn't preclude doing something about Chicago.

I like PJW too, but his hysteria, copled with his lying today about what he said last night made me quite angry. A statement that he had misjudged the situation and overreacted, with an apology, would have been fine.

But to say he didn't say what he said and label it "fake news," well, I cannot go along with what is truly a falsehood.

Also, we don't hav a choice about the Middle East. If we are to defeat ISIS (whose goal is to come over here and destroy America) then we will have to be involved. That is the unpleasant truth.


Calling Kim!

A real outrage alert. In tonight's Jeopardy, under the category "Gates" (as in Watergate, etc.) there was this beauty: "Leaked emails from the University of East Anglia in this country were seized upon by climate deniers." Maybe not the precise wording, but that was the sense. And "climate deniers" was used. It's akin to screenwriters in the 30s slipping their political messages into movies to further their agenda.

Alt-right is a term for the blogs and YouTube sights which are right wing but not establishment right wing. National Review, Weekly Standard, Rush Limbaugh etc. are traditional right wing.

Alt-right is Infowars, Prison Planet, Breitbart, Milo, etc.

The left has tried to portray the alt-right as racist and Nazi-like. Although within their fan base there are a few like that, most are not.

That's fine, a lot of people here feel that way or are at least sympathetic. Still, it's one thing to disagree with the President, quite another to repudiate him entirely. He needs the support of everyone who agrees with him on even 80% of what he does.

Of course 'soft' could easily calcify.

Just read subsequent comments.


"Ann Coulter proved herself as a weak kneed national security maven. She was the biggest pro-trumper and is now all verklempt.



I completely agree. Can't they at least give the President the credit for being informed and using all of his experience and abilities to achieve the goals that he laid out in the csmpaign? Or are they so used to being the opposition, that criticism is their default reaction when faced with a controversial or sensitive problem (ie. negotiating health care legislation or in this instance forming an appropriate response to the use of chemical agents on a civilian population.

Michele Malkin reacted in a similar fashion last night on Fox Business News. She was being interviewed by Lou Dobbs primarily about Surveillance Gate. Dobbs' program had been taped before information was released on the strike in Syria so they were uninformed. Dobbs asked her what she thought of the President's previous comments on Syria. Malkin said that she hoped the President wasn't thinking of "dipping his toe in the revenge waters" or something to that effect.

It troubles me that these pundits think that because they supported him, now they can substitute their judgement for his. In Malkin's case, she wasn't armed with any details let alone the intelligence and advice that the President had available to him. I'd like to see conservatives, especially Trump supporters, hold their fire and wait until the facts are known before making critical comments.

This will all end with whimpering, but it will be a long dragged out process.

It's nice to see that climategate has penetrated well enough to become a trivia question. That's progress.


Barbara, the #NeverTrump people proved "virtue signaling" is not exclusive to Social a Justice Warriors.

What I see Trump doing is what successful business people do: set a goal, then change out staff or methods as new facts arrive. This notion of "perfect" responses is a silly thing, whoever deploys it. Foreign entanglements do suck, but they suck less than foreigners entangled here. Just ask the Swedes.
