THIS LAST PAGE! Not the above.

Wasn't that also a description of BushHitler?

Happy Saturday to all!

Off to take Mom to dialysis. She seems to be doing slightly better this week, although she still refuses to do any physical therapy at the rehab and she basically can barely stand up and walking even with a walker is totally out of the question.


How is playing defense working out??

Captain Hate

The Morning Monolith has a front page article on how Johnnycakes and the other RINO governors who expanded Medicaid (not sure if any of those dipshits lied so blatantly on how it would be financed, which isn't mentioned in the article) and have ripped into the latest Senate plan. That fucking idiot, Rob Portman, doubtlessly after discussing this with his homo son, is withholding his support despite having campaigned as being TOUGH ON SPENDING.

I will contact Portman's office to tell him to get his head out of his ass, for what little good that will do. This Medicaid expansion is single payer under a different name.


Good Morning! Bangor has attracted many music acts in the last few years. The river front venue brings in lots of country acts and aging rock stars. Last night Rod Stewart was in town. Cyndi Lauper is touring with him. During her set,she called Susan Collins to the stage. Lauper said "this woman is my hero,and she's a Republican. She has helped so much with the LGBT homeless youth."
I'm surprised our Congresscritters have time for their pet projects when they are so busy investigating Russia,Russia,Russia.

I am going to have to start checking as I posted articles on the last page, one of which was the one TM chose to lead off this thread.

I am going to report one, however, as I think it has significance:


This is in Forbes, not Breitbart or some alternate news web site, which should give the dot-connecting some legs.

This will surprise absolutely no one here, I'm sure:



TM's Sarah Palin Post just got Instalanched!

Well done, Sir.

Pretty good article. Video will not play if you have an ad blocker, so I didn't watch it.


JamesD,we know a woman who recently became a diversity officer at a college in the mid-south. We've known her for over 30 years and she asked hubby to give a reference. She and her husband have progressed in their professional careers over the years and hubby thinks the world of her.
Hubby was amazed by her job description and salary.


Quick observation:

FBI tapped Manafort's phone. A recording or transcript of the Don Jr / Russian lawyer gal meeting exists.

Thus: the absence of an indictment one year later indicates nothing happened in it.

Cyndi Lauper and Rod Stewart must be trying to fleece the codgers one more time. Shocking that a rock ribbed conservative like Lauper is a big Susan Collins fan. Or is she confused and think she's Phil Collins?

The Texas Observer was wild eyed prog nonsense before wild eyed prog nonsense was cool.

Discount nearly everything the Observer says except for quoting directly two Democrats about doing everything possible to stall the wall...

CH,the local TV news did a report from the venue last night. We were laughing,because the people attending the concert were mostly codgers.

Shocking that one of Yo Frankie's dago SJ buds engages in cartoonish stereotyping of the land of the free. Time to include the Vatican on the do not enter list until they fumigate the place of Jesuits.

But Veselnitskaya said the Trump campaign would need to research it more. After that, Trump Jr. lost interest, according to Akhmetshin.

“They couldn’t wait for the meeting to end,” he said.


tough questions, daddy. four way tie for last place.

brought the BC soph home last night. all are exhausted and sleeping in.

thanks again to all for uplifting prayers and messages.

I think it's irresponsible for the FISA judges who were blatantly lied to in green lighting approval for eavesdropping on Trump people to come out strongly against how they were misled deliberately for political purposes. Failure to do so undermines the public confidence in FISA and they should be very aware of that.

Captain Hate

Dammit, to NOT come out strongly...


We may be an avocado republic compared to Brazil, where they actually convict the guilty;


who what

I wish i could remember all of the details from a meeting 13 months ago. especially if it ended up being wothless. on the other hand, if i purposely staged it for some reason...


The other day Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania explained why Republicans are having such trouble with health care. Speaking at a town hall during the July 4 recess, Toomey said, "I didn't expect Donald Trump to win. I think most of my colleagues didn't. So we didn't expect to be in this situation."

Well what the hell have you been doing since the day he did win?


I work off a few news feeds like that Texan academic, who is even more cynical than iowahawk, so he captues the trapped nazguls and the truly wise like this fellow:

Asking again: why does a person that supposed does not speak or understand English need to be in the front row of a Congressional hearing with Obama staffers?

Now the question is, why doesn't some enterprising reporter out that judge?

The reason is why Glenn Simpson worked with akmetchin, it can be very profitable down the line.

James D.

If Speaker Ryan had any sense, or balls (you can laugh now) he'd counter by having GOP House members reading actual idiotic statements from Dem members on the floor and for the CSPAN cameras. The collected sayings of Maxine Waters could occupy weeks just by themselves.


Pointing out that tip over Johnson employs akhmetchins nephew should be barrels of fun.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


THAT should be a major story. I couldn't believe it when I ran across that yesterday.

We need a damn chart to keep track of these people.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


This has a photo capture of an anecdote about Trump and Mattis. Really great to read!

Honestly, I wish we could get some Reddit guys to follow Ryan around and blast out with air horns whenever Ryan says "That's not who we are."

From yesterday, MM:

In El Cajon, a city on the outskirts of San Diego, a former mayor commented on his disgust that the middle eastern people who sign up for free lunches for their kids at the public schools also drop them off at school in Mercedes.

The 2nd highest population of towelheads promptly relieved him of his job.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Old Lurker,

You might be interested in this.



man, that was quick. went out a minute and Muguruza bagels Williams.

In September 2013, El Cajon’s City Council passed a law allowing the city to revoke alcohol permits from stores that sold to minors or committed other violations. They created a tough foe. Arabo objected to the rules. His organization’s many members in El Cajon believed the regulations were too strict.

The next month, Arabo got his hands on a tape. It was of El Cajon Mayor Mark Lewis saying racist things about Chaldeans and other ethnic groups.

Lewis had told a left-wing website that Chaldean children who receive free lunches at school are “being picked up by Mercedes Benzes.”

“First time, they come over here, it doesn’t take them too long to learn where all the freebies are at,” Lewis told The Progressive.

It got worse. Lewis also said that Chaldeans were intimidating Mexicans and blacks by taking over their drug-selling turf.

Arabo rounded up a congressman, a San Diego city councilwoman, the NAACP and various religious leaders to demand Lewis’ ouster. Lewis, who had served nearly a quarter-century in office and had been slowed by health problems, offered his resignation a few days later.


I do not trust the majority of so called Chaldeans. Lewis was absolutely correct in his comments.

If you want drugs or fireworks or booze for the underaged? Go to the "Arab" liquor stores. That is true for San Diego County as a whole.


Williams just flat out got an a$$ kicking.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)


That Forbes link is great. It truly puts it all together.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Even more interesting is that it was published in June, before all of the Don Jr. email stuff started.

Someone linked it n Reddit and I am glad to see they gave it wider reading.

This information was available PRIOR to that Sexton reporter for the NYT getting ready to spring his big scoop (which the release of the emails undercut).

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Evan McMullin retweeting David French who retweeted Jonah Goldberg saying that people not caring about the Russia story is false.

I think that connection is interesting.

We care alright, just not in the way they want us to.


Williams just flat out got an a$$ kicking.

Still an amazing run for a 37-year-old. She beat some top young players along the way.


I used to communicate with Jonah for a time till he got the vapors full time.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Heck, I was hoping you guys were talking about Juan Williams!


Is there any minute corner of society that the left is not trying to destroy? I know the answer.

As I prepare for my yearly class at the local 4-H camp (making biscuits) I started receiving Facebook links to all things 4-H. I was a 4-Her and have been on the board of our little local camp for many years.

They advertised this curriculum "We Connect - A Global Facilitator Guide" which contains this in the description: International education helps us examine our assumptions
and the ways in which we come to conclusions. It
also attempts to inform our thinking by helping us see
the world in all of its complexities. It helps us recognize
that we are not always right and that the standards and
values we use in our own life should not be imposed
on others.

So this is one more wholesome organization that once taught our children public speaking skills as well as life skills like cooking, healthy choices, raising animals, training dogs, growing crops, etc. has now descended into telling them that those horrible old American values are "not always right" and that they live in a "global society".

So depressing...



MM - thanks for the Forbes article. I'm sharing it!

Miss Marple the Deplorable


You're welcome. It's an older article, but as I told Jane, it's doubly valuable as the writer had put all that information out BEFORE the NYT and CNN started in on the Don Jr. hysteria.


More nonsense:

What's Wrong With Gender-Reveal Parties?

For starters, gender-reveal parties don't actually reveal gender—they reveal anatomy.



Marching through those institutions, mom.

The Girl Scouts were official participants in the 1976 celebration in Philly put on by the aspen institute intended to redirect our focus from independence to interdependence.

Seriously 4H shows up regularly now as an entity providing "after school programs" that must also be focused on the Positive Youth Development template. PYD doesn't mean what you think unfortunately.

If you check out any of Zuckerberg's Facebook posts, you will find that amazingly he has a group of true fans ( or as we would call them, paid sycophants) who find his every statement just SO insightful and fascinating.

Someone needs to ask Tim Kaine what method of execution for treason he prefers, firing squad, hanging, or gassing.

Old Lurker

Cap'n "Failure to do so undermines the public confidence in FISA and they should be very aware of that."

Seriously? It is possible to dig beneath a court which rules 99.9% in favor of Deep State and against the individual marks?

Old Lurker

Go read this one at AT:

"FISA transcripts of the meeting in June 2016 may have also served the basis of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, now headed by Bob Mueller.”

"So two people in the meeting were working with the ‘political intel’ firm which had been hired by Democrats to dig up dirt on Trump and produced the dirty dossier? Really? Can we say set-up, folks?"

I do not understand how any American could pay any attention to a Democrat politician.

I wonder if the Italians actually have the guts to go through with this and show the EU how angry they are: UK TIMES: Italy plots ‘nuclear option’ to send migrants north

Senior Italian government figures have threatened to allow 200,000 migrants who have reached its shores to travel across Europe by exploiting a little-known Brussels directive as the country struggles to cope with a huge rise in refugees fleeing north Africa.

A minister and a senator are plotting to issue migrants with temporary EU visas...

And here's the SUN's version: ‘Abandoned’ Italy threatens ‘nuclear option’ of granting 200,000 Libyan migrants visas that allow them to live ANYWHERE in Europe… including Britain

Old Lurker

Trump should be careful citing the stock market since that can and will change on a dime.

In truth it surprises me anyway. I thought it spiked on Trump's election because the MAGA agenda would be good for the country and the markets. I am surprised that it has not tanked since then because Obamacare is not going to be repealed - that was a con by Congress, Congress shows no appetite for serious tax reform, hard to imagine a MAGA budget will follow if a budget happens at all, deficit spending is soaring again, the Mueller cloud ending the Trump presidency cannot be dismissed, and while it is early, I would be taking no bets on retaining the House in 2018.

So. Thin ice for sure.

Can Kaine really be as stupid as he sounds? Does he struggle to find his way home in the evenings?


Yes on both counts.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

common man,

If your world is populated by Maxine Waters, Al Franken, Hank Johnson, and the like, Kaine probably blends right in.


I see that Jared Kushner's Lawyer, the execrable Jamie Gorelick, has resigned from representing Kushner.
