I beseech you almighty God, give us the day that we can write "the failed, defunct, pining for the fjords New York Times".


Those layers of [laid off] editors at work.

[Overheard at a recent New York Times editorial board meeting]

"What leads today? Not Russia, again?"

"No, we have something that will tingle the nerves of everyone except one guy on the UWS."

"You tracked down the Paki, Imran Awan, and he had UBL's email address?"

"No, its better than that."

"Oh, you've been able to track that kid Ellison directly to Bannon?"

"Not that either, better."

"We need a stinger today, something that will send shock waves through Manhattan and Charlottesville."

"We have Ajit Pai agreeing with all the other broadcasters to allow Sinclair to claim more stations and release Bill O'Reilly back on to a unknowing public."

"My God. Why didn't you say so in the first place. Shit. I'm calling Pinch, right now. Page One, above the fold Triple the font. Ask graphics if they still have that Nazi flag with Rush Limbaughs photo on it."

"This is what we live for, folks, and ask our subscribers to believe in. Good work, Everyone."

Tectonic plates have no resale value, since they do not have a mark on the back.

It's not very often that my old profession and my second profession converge. Thanks, Jack, for the laugh!

How do they suddenly detect a tectonic plate?

So they are still chasing the grishenko squirrel


Narciso, leftover angular momentum means they missed something. They still have leftover momentum, just less of it. So if you see an unidentified tectonic plate lying around... let them know.

Regarding tectonic plates and continental drift:

When I was a kid, specifically in 5th grade, I wondered why the coastlines of North America and South America seemed to line up with the coastlines of Africa and Europe. I even asked this question in class and was told it was just a coincidence.

When I majored in geology, many years later, they had discovered tectonic plates and established that continental drift was real. I was overjoyed to know that what I had noticed was correct.

For those unfamiliar with the concept, the continents rest on plates. There are also plates without continents. The seafloor and adjacent areas operate like conveyor belts. In the Atlantic, for example, the crust rises at the center and moves to either side and then plunges under the edge of the continental shelf. Those areas where it plunges are called subduction zones. In the Pacific, there is a huge one on the edge of the West Coast.

Subduction zones are prevalent to earthquakes and in some cases, volcanos, because of the friction as the crust dives under the surface.

Anyway, am glad to see the tectonic plates in the news again. Prior to the 1960's, anyone proposing this theory was mocked because "the science was settled." Now we see it wasn't.

Top men cintinue their sterling track recird:



Clarice..your FB friend's post/what Rabbi expressed regarding the Left's new Hate Propaganda meme (erase confederacy BS) will not stop once all Dixie flags, confederate historical monument, or if President Trump was to condemn kkk, nazi's, and executive order the word "White-anything" illegal.

After covering up any War Memorial--Civil, World Wars, Vietnam, Gettysburg, Shanksville, PA., Pearl Harbor, NYC World Trade Center, Holocast museums will be eradicated from history.
Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, Mount Rushmore are symbols of independent thought and honor that safe-spacing immoral bigots fear ..

The status quo has sold their soul to Soros ( an actual NAZI collaborator), Chinese $$$ , Iranian dogma, and Davos $$ to open border, class warfare to destroy creativity, capital markets and freedoms.
The nevertrump, Bernie fools, Clinton-Obama, Merkels, European Union finance, enable HATE mobs, because they will never ever be trusted or supported, much less WIN a free fair constitutional election.

All debate is now closed by fear and controlled by special interests that placed the poor non-whites in their crumbling lost hope.
Trump, as flawed and unpolitically correct the media and establishment could not imagine winning --strengthens with each deceitful ploy...but the danger is the thugs believe anything goes--after all, the system never holds the oppressors to account-----until Trump !!

Ya know, this Charlottesville meltdown is another example of Democrats being unable to handle security.

This latest brouhaha has a Democrat Mayor & a Democrat Governor blaming the President of the United States for their lousy response to a known & permitted controversial event.
Could they not handle it?

Once again, Democrats show how lousy & unprofessional they are on security:
open borders
unsecured computer systems
crowd/event control
Awan brothers


So quelle surprise the Charlottesville masher was a nasty piece of work going back to 2011, that way before the teacher Mr. Hand pegged him as a nazi, shades of Tucson and charleston.



Praying for a speedy and complete recovery, and that the surgeons do everything right.


Yes tucson loughner (I've worked so hard to forget that name) was let loose because sheriff dupnik owed a favor to an employee of his. Judge roll and a young girl paid the ultimate price, giffords was grievously wounded yet who bore the burden, even among her putative allies.

The funny thing about this episode is the mainstream left doesn't realize how revealing it is...again.
The fact is, despite their hysterical denials they are communist sympathizers.
They are irate with Trump because they really do think Nazis are exponentially worse than communists.
That's because they know in their hearts, their ideology has the same roots.
Communists speak the same anti capital, pro collectivism the libs do because the libs are just a milder version of them and they may decry communists excesses but they sympathize with their goals.
If they didn't they would equate Nazis and communists as any sane person does.
They don't because deep down they don't think they're all that bad; they're just a little enthusiastic and who can really get upset by a few broken eggs by enthusiasts just trying to build the utopian omelet?

From maryrose on the last thread.

I am so saddened that there is not a single channel I can turn to for news.
Just can't believe the propaganda networks.
Might as well be living in Russia.

I so agree with you!

I come here to JOM, and with many thanks to all of you who post links to stories, comments and Tweets, I have access to news stories, videos of events, newspapers, journals and analysis as well.

The media as it existed in the past is in its death throes through its own fault. Progressives rail at the Internet for this reason calling "evil." It's true that the Internet can be used for evil purposes. However, the Net with its access to sites like JOM and so many others is the mega equivalent of the flyer or pamphlet in days gone by. And I love it that it drives the left nuts!

I found this interesting from twitter:

Replying to @drawandstrike @JakWilllson and 5 others

This appears to be what happened in Charlottesville. If the cops are there, they'd end up on conflict with antifa over control of the street


For a change of pace, here's an exciting and fun story from 'down under' that we can all enjoy, tho' some of us may enjoy it more than others:)

You'll recall that 2 Aussie Senators from the Green Party had to recently resign their Seats in Parliament when they discovered that they were dual citizens of New Zealand. It is against the Law to be a citizen of any other country and be an Aussie politician---something having to do with dual allegiance.

Well it has just been discovered that the number 2 guy in power in Australia, Barnaby Joyce, who is Aussie Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's top deputy, is a Kiwi himself, and thus he's ineligible to be deputy! Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull faces uncertain future after deputy discovers New Zealand citizenship

Barnaby Joyce is a New Zealand citizen and may be dismissed from parliament.

Mr Joyce, best known internationally for his threat to kill the pet dogs of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, became the latest victim of the nation’s dual citizenship crisis after revealing he may be a New Zealander via his father,

This means that Mr Joyce could be ineligible to be an MP under section 44 of Australia’s constitution which disqualifies candidates if they are a citizen of a foreign country.

The development could cost Mr Turnbull his one-seat majority in the House of Representatives and require him to depend on the support of independent MPs

In other papers it appears this is causing hilarity.

Since Aussies generally believe that Kiwi's are individuals known to have unnatural relations with sheep, hi-jinks ensue: Sheep jokes, Barnaby as the 'beached as, bro' whale and plenty of Kiwi fruit: Social media mocks Deputy PM Joyce after he reveals he's a New Zealander and may have to quit parliament

Oh if only Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan discovered they were Kiwis:(


Your (almost!) daily Wretchard:



http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/08/14/taylor-swift-wins-groping-case-against-dj-david-mueller/ is the real end to what we discussed.

I said I had seen my friend in the drawings as he is unusually tall. Fun to see a picture.

Hopefully I will get back to sleep. I just knew the clock was going to chime 5 or 6 times when it was just four.


I suppose we had to learn something from ISIS eventually.


This is the statement from Living Cities that was created by the Rock and Ford F's but is now funded by virtually all the major banks.

Think of the stand down to police in light of this being seen as an excuse for revolution that was already being sought by fiat.

"This past Saturday, white nationalist groups converged on Charlottesville, Virginia at a rally that ended with the death of a counter-protester at the hands of a white supremacist from Ohio. Watching this unfold, I felt like I could have been in Germany in 1938 or Mississippi in 1960.

Saturday was a horrific and undeniable reminder how close hate is to the surface of American life and how important it is to speak out about it when you see it.

Race in America is a complex thing. We are a country undeniably founded on the genocide of one people and the enslavement of another. Throughout our history, systems were designed that isolate and separate us, and that empower a select few—based on the invention of race. These systems made it so misunderstanding, fear, and ultimately hate, are in our groundwater.

We have yet to eradicate that legacy from our society. The result? Not only senseless deaths like those in Charlottesville but extreme disparities across all major indicators of success and well-being between white people and Americans of color.

This latest horror in our nation’s tarnished history on race must be matched with both words and action. Inaction or equivocation in the face of white supremacy is reckless, and we must commit as individuals, as members and leaders of institutions, and as Americans to ending it now. As an institution, Living Cities is deeply committed to doing that. We’re convinced of the need for affirmative approaches to tackle these issues directly; to living a different set of values, rooted in a vision of racial justice and equity.

Read Nadia Owusu's piece, Philanthropy: We Need to Talk About Power.

Leaders in government and other sectors must not equivocate on this point: the American Dream belongs to us all, and it’s worth fighting for. As long as white supremacy persists in all its forms, whether overt or covert, institutional or systemic, that dream will remain out of reach."




That piece that was so hard to download Resilient Boston laid out the plans for this shift back in July and now this tragedy is being used to force its implementation.

As I explained here yesterday http://invisibleserfscollar.com/shocks-stresses-and-yokeability-resilience-as-the-balm-masking-total-control/ this is all a different kind of communism that is more consistent with Marx's actual theorizing than anything Mao or Lenin tried or even knew about. That work was translated late per Daniel Bell and was something the behavioral scientists in the US were drawn to starting in the 50s.

Now we are about to get a full assault, which the media is trying to justify as a necessary transformation.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

If you have to argue with one of these idiots (including weak-kneed GOP people) here is a compilation of Trump disavowing David Duke and the KKK repeatedly, since 1991 and numerous times during the primaries.

Any reporter pushing the idea he did not do so is lying. Period. They are pushing an agenda.



It's prudent to presume a reporter is lying, period. The presumption is of course rebuttable.


Back from my travels, saw this at Althouse, a positive contrast to recent events:

This is how the press is. As I said, they KNOW he isn't racist. They KNOW he got an award from Jesse Jackson for outreach to the Black Community. They KNOW he disavowed David Duke and the KKK repeatedly. They KNOW he stood up for Mike Tyson when everyone abandoned him. They KNOW he was a friend of Michael Jackson.

They are maliciously promoting a false story in order to delegitimize his presidency. Most shamefully, GOP elitists are running with the story.

The press has become a full-fledged lynch mob.
