The US is the only country with a chance of dragging western civilization, kicking and screaming and despite itself, to safety and continued relevance - because it's the only country with a leader who is worth a damn.

GE is now 8:08.
Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley going to help it out financially.

You are so right!

I don’t consider our political system dysfunctional.
I think Dems are sore losers and refuse to let democracy work.
We will prevail.
Especially if we get off the stick and publish FISA warrant fraud and targeted spying and unmaskings perpetrated by Hillary and Obama cronies.
Now with Michelle ‘s new book coming out what a an excellent opportunity to say “ We will never forgive Obama’s illegal spying on Congress and candidate Trump.
Also we won’t forgive the coup attempt to derail his presidency.
We need indictments now!

Against my better judgement I followed a link to R/[liberal]Politics about the Florida election.

It actually clarified something for me about the liberal talking point: There's hardly ever any 'Voting Fraud.'

Voting Fraud, you see, is for the most part casting multiple votes. It could be in the same state. It could be two different states. Cases of voter fraud don't get prosecuted very often so it is easy for them to say it doesn't happen much. Like when Toni Morrison said she wanted to see a white guy prosecuted for raping a black woman. Maybe that's a bad example. That truly is something practically nonexistent.

So ignoring thousands of illegally registered non citizens in AZ, what is happening and what Republicans always roll over on is ELECTION FRAUD. Like a pal of Andrew Gillum turning in a rent car to Avis with cases of ballots in the trunk just daring Lt Horacio Cain to take him down. But muh Republican Voter Suppression. ID's. Signatures. You know, stuff you learn in second grade even if you take it three times. Especially if you take it three times.

All ballots should have been delivered to main election central after the polls closed on Tuesdsy night.
We need reform in all states, no excuse if Republican Governor is in charge along with SOS.
In Ohio we cleaned up the rolls.
The man responsible was just elected Lt Governor.
Dems howled like crazy when he did it but people who haven’t voted in 10 years and dead people aren’t in the system anymore.

Sherrod Brown 'seriously' thinking about running for president in 2020

Brown, who cruised to re-election last week in a state President Trump won by 8 points in 2016, told the Columbus Dispatch he’s heard “sort of a crescendo” in suggestions that he run for president.

“We’re hearing it increase, so we’re thinking about it as a result,” he said. “We’re not close to saying yes.”

During an appearance earlier Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Brown said he was able to clinch a third term in the red-leaning state because he respects “the dignity of work.”

“That’s what Washington forgets about,” he said, adding, “My campaign was about workers and about the direction where we go.”

maryrose,

Regarding your post at 3:47, ChiTown has a message.

GE is the biggest short sale on The Street right now because 90% or so of institutional investors will have to bow out if the price trades below $5.00.

And that is what is driving the price right now, nothing more, nothing less.

ABC News with David Muir.

The worst.

The Infamous Ignatz

--IIRC, some recent article said that rain in the spring produces lots of new growth; a dry summer turns the new growth to fuel, et voila - big rainy season, big fires.--

Well yeah, they perfected this all purpose shtick before the climate change one;
If we have a dry year then it's EXTREME FIRE DANGER because dry.
If we have a wet year it's EXTREMER FIRE DANGER because new growth.
None of that matters, especially the new growth claim. Grass fires in CA do little damage and grass contributes little to brush fires and nothing to forest fires.
And I hate to be the bearer of bad news but forest management is not much of a cure. There are millions of acres to cover and to make a forest more fire resistant you need to cut out the small trees and the ladder fuels. That is always a money losing proposition so who pays for it? And here's the dirty little secret, in pre Columbian California about 40-50% of the forest was second growth recovering from a fire because even an old growth forest with no ladder fuels to speak of and only huge fire resistant trees will still burn like a Roman candle when conditions are right and they often are.
The west had million acre forest fires 100 years ago.
There is no solution. CA is particularly bad because we have 40 million people which means a great many of them live in the middle of inflammable forests and giant brushfields and all of CA, except the actual desert, has wet enough winters to make plenty of fuel and all of CA has dry enough summers to make huge fires. And since most fires are human caused, more humans means fires.
Stick a bunch of towns out in those fires waiting to happen and you'll have disasters, just like building a city below sea level right next to the sea like Now Orleans or next to a volcano and subducting ocean plate like Seattle or in a flood plain or on an earthquake fault eventually something bad is going to happen.

The Infamous Ignatz

The most effective solution is massively more fire units in place but even that is largely hopeless.
The Camp Fire blew up to 100,000 acres in 48 hours and burned right through Paradise sooner than that. Except for the units right there it takes 24-48 hours to get most of the ground units there and even longer for most of the dozers.
A combination of several years of dumping tons of money into clearing strategic, defensible ridges and basins and tons of prescribed burns, lots more air and ground units and vastly more draconian clearing around homes, towns and power lines would have some effect.
CA will do a little of each and then some retarded thing like a carbon tax to feel good and will keep right on burning.

Restrictions were passed against building fire roads since doing so would require "clear cutting."

The optimal tree stand per acre is 40. In California we are over 100.

The grass and shrubbery is tinder. The number of dead, dying and decaying trees is the kindling. And sappy evergreens are the logs.

Peruvian "beauty queen" arrested along with one of the top law enforcement officials in Peru after their gang was dismantled by law enforcement. Carolina Preciado was a member of a group who called themselves "The Heartless Human Traffickers". Her job was to actually sell the children themselves. Her organization and herself sold the children to organ harvesters after convincing mothers looking for abortions to carry to term and allowing them to confiscate the child.

Curious where children are being procured for heinous crimes? That answer would be shit hole countries like Peru where ugly instagram-thots buy and sell children to pay for their shitty photo shoots.

The Infamous Ignatz

Researchers have determined an insect killed stand was actually less of a fire danger than a green forest after the first year. Once the dead needles drop there is far less ladder fuel off the ground to produce superheated fires and fewer embers to leapfrog with spot fires.

Kevlar Kid

"Every time I clap my hands a child in Africa dies"

Reminds me of stat cited in the film "The Big Short": for every point increase in the unemployment rate 40,000 Americans die.

every six minutes in America someone dies from complications of Type 2 diabetes. (forget who came up with that...wasn't American Diabetes Association that's for sure.)

Is there a difference between insect-killed vs drought killed? Seems to me there'd be more drought killed trees per acre than vice versa.

The Infamous Ignatz

There are very few trees that die directly from drought, Kev. Native trees are adapted to periodic droughts.
But drought stresses them so their natural defenses against insects, particularly the pine bark beetle, are down and it becomes a vicious cycle of the more trees the bugs kill the more beetles breed to make more beetles.
The beetles lay their eggs in the bark and the tiny grubs then munch their way around the cambium layer under the bark girdling the tree.

Pinandpuller

Yeah, like we need more hairdressers and Cher impersonators:

There are by now multiple caravans on their way to the US border. Amongst them was a group of about 80 LGBTQ Hondurans who felt discriminated within the largest caravan and therefore decided last week to take the bus directly to Tijuana. They have arrived there yesterday and are ready to cross the border.

Journalist Jorge Nieto travelled with the group, which is only the first to arrive. The group traveled in buses to an Airbnb in Playas de Tijuana, paid for by U.S. lawyers traveling with the caravan.

As they arrived in a shelter, they clashed with the locals: "Yelling at them go away go to a shelter, this is not your place, all you came here this is a safe area and we are afraid of you."

“The shelters at the moment are over capacity.”

Reporters Cassie Carlisle for 10 News confirmed: “These migrants are just a few miles south of the border at Playas de Tijuana and they had mixed reaction as they arrived at the bus station.”

“They claim that in the caravan they faced discrimination and that’s why they separated. The group says it’s normal because at home they face the same discrimination in Honduras.”

There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process. Supervisor Snipes should be removed from her office following the recounts.

Since the advent of Trump, it's starting to dawn on them that maybe the base doesn't WANT anyone ruling over us. Hence, their alliance with the people who are willing to make it happen.

How many people do doctors kill every year?

Captain Hate

The GOPe sees their base as the same way the progressives do: racist, uncouth, potentially violent, prone to religious delusions.

So long as the deplorables followed their 'betters', it was all good, because that way they were under control. The GOPe thus saw their role as being a noble sacrifice for the greater good.

But once they lost control, they decided it was safer for everyone if the GOP base was put down. I call this my "war elephant" theory of Never Trumpism.

When they controlled the elephant, it was good and they enjoyed using it to stop on people they didn't like.

But it's no longer obeying their commands and they're afraid it might step on something they like, or even THEM.

So it needs to die. And they'll take any help they can get to kill it.

This pro-abortion ad is the most ghoulish thing you'll see today

The ad depicts what might be perhaps the world’s cutest baby. With a knit cap on and sweet baby skin glowing, the child coos and Brahms’s "Lullaby" twinkles softly in the background. Slowly the caption reads: "She deserves to be loved. She deserves to be wanted. She deserves to be a choice." The final screen says "#StandwithPP," which has led most viewers to believe the ad was produced by Planned Parenthood Federation or Planned Parenthood Action.

However, it was not. The ad was produced by the relatively small and unknown Agenda Project Action Fund. The ad is actually three years old, but for some reason it has gone viral again.

Pin,
I don’t have a body cam, but I think the issue with audio has to do with the microphone being basically unprotected. I believe they lack a foam or other type protective covering. I do have an in-car camera. It has an external mic that I keep on my body armor. I use the mic on the receiver, which sometimes has audio quality issues due to wind or other ambient noise because it is unprotected. There is an option for an extended mic with the foam cover.

Hope that helps.
