Bringing Barbara lee anywhere in little havana is akin to bringing a pig to Mecca, versailles is the civic center, the agora if you will.

American Thinker keeps redirecting me to some trash site. Between that and the clickbait shit that increasingly infests it, the content is extremely difficult to read.

Old Lurker

That AT article even put a smile on MY face.

Captain Hate,

I have the same problem with The Daily Caller. Without an ad block program (which I don't have on this iPad) it's impossible to read.

Ah Seth you still haven't figured out this dog and pony show:

I'm at the shop getting some new tars for my car, so I'll take the phrase of the day...

Nothing is faster than rumor.

How many tars does your car use?

Captain Hate

I cleared cookies and still have the same problem. Fuck that site.

Fer, Jane. ;)

Old Lurker

How come guys in the South need so much tar?

Where do they get the feathers?

That sucks. I wonder if out of control adware & malware on conservative sites is a feature to Goolag / FB (controllers of 95% of online ad placement).

Beasts-butler tires is not far from my house and I probably drive by for some reason 4 days or so a week. Red tells me that is where everyone with a high-end or customized car, especially athletes and entmt moguls, gets their tires. The vehicles we have seen there in just the past 12 months or so are truly ridiculous.

Last week it was a customized, two-tone rolls coupe of some kind.

"Political Lawyering for the 21st Century"--

"Legal education purports to prepare the next generation of lawyers capable of tackling the urgent and complex social justice challenges of our time. But law schools are failing in that public promise. Clinical education offers the best opportunity to overcome those failings by teaching the skills lawyers need to tackle systemic and interlocking legal and social problems. But too often even clinical education falls short: it adheres to conventional pedagogical methodologies that are overly narrow and, in the end, limit students’ abilities to manage today’s complex racial and social justice issues. This article contends that clinical education needs to embrace and reimagine political lawyering for the 21st century in order to prepare aspiring lawyers to tackle both new and chronic issues of injustice through a broad array of advocacy strategies. "

MM, on iPad when you put the curser in the box to type in your login, look carefully at the band on top of the pop up keyboard. In white letters in the grey you should be able to see your login and just touch it to fill in. It is small and easy to miss if you are not looking for it.

Diamond and Silk are starting a new social media site which is in beta testing right now. They had a bunch of stuff pulled off of Facebook without warning and no one from the company would even talk to them.

The name of the site is Chitchatme. And the web address is www.chitchatme.com.

I have wondered if competitors would start to spring up.

I'm sick of reading that. If these commie, anti American creeps can invite half the world here illegally and so hate our country that they tear it in two in either a bloodless or bloody rebellion against everything it stands for, why are they entitled to any of it?
If they think Europa and Canada are so great and they absolutely love migrants to death then they can take their sorry prop asses and do what they're always threatening to do and become migrants and go live among their like minded co-suicidals.

I wonder what the MSM's motivation is for the fake poll stuff. Do they think it actually influences the vote? I think it's just clickbait for their increasingly selective audience. Their credibility is in shreds anyway. I'm looking forward to the lamentations of their women on November 7th.

Jamal Kashoggi to the white courtesy telephone!

Miss Marple

jimmyk,

I think in some cases it is to depress GOP voters. I vividly remembe radio and TV quoting polls saying that Trump had no chance of winning. The last week it was almost constant, to the point that I felt a wave of gloom sweep over me. I went to the polls determined to cast my vote as a lost cause effort.

I don't think that trick will work again. Peopl no longer believe polling. They are wise to weighted samples and how many people refuse to participate. They also look at who pays for the poll.

I can only think it is done to get donors although one would think that donors would be skeptical, too.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Consider the prog;
Through half-wit anti American Barry's incompetence, fecklessness and disgraceful unconcern about protecting this country the Chinese rolled up our entire spy network in China and murdered many of the spies working on our country's behalf.
About this the progs gave less than a shit or in some cases probably approved.

Some muslim-fundamentalist, MB-whoring, anti-American, Qatari-paid Saudi may or may not have been killed and it may have been someone who may or may not be connected to the Saudi's, and all of which had nothing to do with the US, and they try to make it into a gigantic affair.

To save this country, in the end, will evnetually require killing many of these people. As Subotai says at Wretchard's they are TWANLOC; those who are no longer our countrymen.

Ignatz,

And why hasn't John Brennan been called on the carpet over this?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Ordinarily I find Codevilla a paragon of concise writing but, and I'm only half way through it, I have to agree with CH. Regardless of the merits of the ideas, the writing is convoluted, turgid and hard to follow.

henry

what a tool:


Jim Acosta
@Acosta

Tonight the Trump campaign/WH turned up the music so loud the press risers were vibrating. Nearly impossible to do live TV. I suppose the WH loves those kinds of shenanigans. But I wonder if it’s a security concern for USSS or local law enforcement. They can’t hear either.

Federal Judge Says State Department Provided False Statements to Derail Lawsuits Over Hillary Clinton’s Private Server

Bernardi Dr la paz

One forgets, but codevilla saw the entrails of the deep state about 40 years ago, when they eviscerated David sullivan, the former marine turned corporate analyst that told Robert Novak what a fraud salt 2 was based on. Of course the paste eater of Scranton reassured the senators there was nothing to worry about.

Extraneus

Codevilla's point about federalism, at the end of the piece, is the best-case scenario, and even that probably can't happen without some bloodshed.

I also want info about Rosenstein testimony and Ohr’s today.

Old Lurker

.I endorse every single word, sentiment and prediction made in that Codevilla piece. Indeed he said in more elegant words and phrases and in more thoroughness pretty much what I have inartfully been shouting since 2016.

If he left anything out, I would say it was not laying as much blame on our church(es) as they deserve.

As to "The altar of Trump" the man, not the movement, this quote from page 10 nails it:

"...what happens in our revolution's third turn depends less on what Trump will do than on what millions of people on all sides will do..."

EXACTLY why I point to these midterms in such a binary manner.

Miss Marple

Whine, whine, whine, Acosta has a million complaints.

Did anyone else complain?

JiB:

"The Philip Vickers Fithian?"

How in the world did that come up??? I used Fithian as my screen name for quite awhile, elsewhere on the web. I picked it up, when I was on the board of Stratford Hall (the Plantation, not the school), where I was always far more interested in its Colonial/Revolutionary War history, than its connection to Rbt E. Lee. You didn't happen to be visiting when we provided a night of Colonial doggerel, which I wrote & narrated as the famous tutor himself? I was active at Stratford for quite some time.

“I can only think it is done to get donors although one would think that donors would be skeptical, too.”

You’d think, either to generate donors or audience, the bias would be to make the contests closer than they really are, not favoring the Ds. But I suppose the really rich donors give to the front runners with the expectation of a quid pro quo.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Having read the whole thing, Codevilla did finally hit his stride after the first quarter or so of the essay.
The first few paragraphs had me blinking but he got back to much clearer writing later.
Hard to fault anything he said.

Iggy:
Some people get caught up in style rather than substance and judge a piece accordingly.
If I can glean some truth or fact that is new to me than I enjoy the essay.

Kushner story is fake news and the Castro needs to be sued for slander.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I was just a bit too slow in hushing Ben's latest Ignazi comment.
There's no wig or Whig being flipped, retard.

Remember someday that I told you the following; if you and your like minded statists continue on your present course you will force the millions of decent normal Americans to defend themselves and their country against you and to kill you by the thousands or the millions if you persist in your project to turn this country upside down.
It is very slightly possible your kind will lose enough political power to dissolve as the Whigs did before you force a conflagration but if one occurs your kind will be devoured by the whirlwind you'll reap.
Your reply to this will be your typical, arrogant, retarded, snide, blind brick of shit but in the end you and your kind will be dead, in exile or in a political wilderness akin to your child, the KKK, and your fathers, the communists and fascists.
Period.

The nice thing about knowing each other as much as we do, Iggy, is we can spot a sock from a mile away. I usually give a generic troll half a line if that before moving on and at most an Iggy-Wannabee gets one whole line before I am sure.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Iggy:
Some people get caught up in style rather than substance and judge a piece accordingly.--

Style isn't the question. The first duty of a writer is to write clearly enough that someone is willing to read it and if they do, that they can understand it.
That has long been George Gilder's problem. His ideas would have been far more influential if he wasn't such an idiosyncratic [read, awful] writer. He used to be very good but for whatever reason might as well be speaking his own language half the time now.

Old Lurker

Ext, I am removing your "click to enlarge" privilege for ten days.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

His Ignazi comments aren't sockpuppeting; it's just the affectionate nickname by which he refers to me, OL.
It's actually relatively clever, for him, but unfortunately the usual brown shirt projection as well.
Or perhaps, considering what a caricature of a nutjob prog he is, he engages in black shorts projection.

Those sonsuvbitches ought to be shot for such a headline. it refers to trump haters being disappointed, as if those are the only people who matter. Why not,"Prepare for Elation" instead of "Prepare for disappointment?" Rotten press bastards.
