Tucker is wrong in thinking the Left loves abortion because it sets the mother free economically. Shame on him for being so shallow.

Having our population accept the Left's moving target for OK abortions amounts to the fundamental, and nearly final, repudiation of the tenets of the Judeo-Christian foundation of Western Civilization. Once that pesky barrier is removed, then Katy can bar the door but the law of the jungle will take over.

Like getting 1984's Winston (am I right on that reference?) to admit that 2+2=5 is not because his tormentors believe that 2+2=5, but that getting Winston to say it means his slate is now clean and ready for new programming.

Aborting, with acceptance, live full term babies is that fundamental a breakthrough for the Left.

Bernie Sanders is being accused of racism and sexism over this announcement

Democrats are accusing Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) of sexism and racism over his announcement that he would be giving his own rebuttal speech to the State of the Union speech from the president.
James D.

OL, I think you're exactly right.

Extraneus
"We hope that @berniesanders understands that in many progressives' minds he has a woman problem and a POC problem, and by presenting his own response it will just confirm those issues," remarked the account for the progressive radio station WMNF. "This doesn't have to be about his 2020 plans. Let @staceyabrams be front and center."

...

"Just one day. That's all," Clymer tweeted. "Wait until the little hand does two complete cycles and have at it. Why is that so much to ask? Why is @BernieSanders choosing the same night as the first Black woman to deliver a State of the Union response? It is so damn disrespectful."

Etc.

Extraneus

According to Twitter, Bernie Sanders making a statement on Facebook means he's erasing the experiences of all American black women, or something. Definitely looking forward to a very measured and rational 2020 primary process

Wonder how much of that crap would be ongoing two years in if Brennan, Clapper, Rice, Comey, McCabe, and a bunch of Clintonistas had been charged with the crimes even we know about right out of the box, and if they were about $1M into lawyers and fearing prison as we speak?

Old Lurker,

Good point.

Indictments and prosecutions would have increased the anti-Trump frenzy, however. I wonder how much of what we see now is the fear that such is coming.

I don't know. The President has a huge amount of stuff on his plate. As I scan the headlines today I see Iran, China, Venezuela (with Iran, Russia and Cuba involved), the border wall, abortion/infanticide, the economy, etc.

All of this with very few allies even within his own party. (Look at that crap amendment McConnell put out yesterday on Afghanistan.)

My position is this: I elected President Trump to lead the country. He is the one who knows all of the problems on his plate, not me. I trust him to do what is best for the country.

Would I like to see all of those people on trial? You bet. Do I want to see the FBI disbanded? Yes. In my opinion the CIA needs more oversight.

As I said, I trust him to do what's best.

MM "Indictments and prosecutions would have increased the anti-Trump frenzy, however. I wonder how much of what we see now is the fear that such is coming."

Doubt it. Half the country hates the man's guts and are blind to any sense of reality. Part of their hatred is fed by the incessant attacks from people who should, as I said, be spending all of their time with their K Street lawyers and setting up trusts for their kids for when they will be in prison. As to "fear of prosecution for crimes long long ago..." Ha Ha to that.

henry

note from Chitown Lurker:

OL has a good thought @ 9:15, but I believe it to be much simpler than that.

One of the underlying premises of both “Climate Change” and the Left’s “Fixed Pie” economics is that there are too many people on this planet for proper “control”. Therefore, starting with you, the individual, accepting their concept that babies as being the first that are ok to go, it doesn’t take much of a push to get to the next unchecked box on their little list.

James D.

Indictments and prosecutions would have increased the anti-Trump frenzy

How much more frenzied could they be? The mass protest rallies and calls for his impeachment began before he was even inaugurated.

...it is easy to forget that a not insignificant sized group [of the left] really does think the world would be far better off with something like 2B humans.
It's more like 600-800 million, OL. Forget the global warming cultists -- even if we are limited to "organic" non-GMO food then the planet won't support even one billion people, let alone two.

The problem is with the other fraction of the left, who doesn't appreciate that Malthus was in fact correct. If we are limited to just the technology available at Malthus's time, we really ARE doomed.

(I've been saying all along that we should propose a New Social Contract: those who say that the earth would be better off with fewer people need to die first. In other words, put up or shut up. The beauty of my plan is that whether zero die or 7 billion die, either way they STFU.)

Threadkiller

What I gleaned from the must read Hugh Hewitt interview of Chris Christie. (Not necessarily in the same order as the transcript)

Trump can't learn unless the knowledge is passed to him verbally. And that is assuming you can get a word in edgewise since he talks a lot.

Trump has no loyalty per some anonymous source Christie feels comfortable quoting despite his ranting about Bannon doing the same kind of sourcing.

Trump is "getting rolled" with the notion of a 355 ship navy.

Trump didn't win in 2016; Hillary and Comey lost.

Trump should be nicer to the media.

When Ginsburg and or Thomas are gone Trump needs to pick among ladies and blacks for replacements.

Trump is too self involved to notice that he is trying to kill Christie with Scallops. (Hugh found that to be hilarious)

The Media made Trump.


Did I miss anything besides the reason why this interview is a must read?

henry

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Wow, two great links by Narc last night.

That New Yorker profile of that Mallory nutjob was like reading the biography of a more flamboyant version of my brother. Uncanny.

And the toxic mushroom story hits close to home. I have been a mushroom hunter since my mom taught me as just a stripling.
The most delectable mushroom in these parts is the amanita calyptraderma which unfortunately bears a faint resemblance to the death cap. I even gave up collecting them for a time, but have resumed doing so using a hard and fast rule that the ones I pick must have three characteristics which preclude making a mistake.The problem is variations in traits can theoretically overlap but sticking to my rule makes it pretty much foolproof, which in my case is a necessity.

Threadkiller

Oh, and Trump was stupid enough to believe a Drudge poll that was correct.

MissMarple2

Threadkiller,

Other things learned:

Jeff Sessions shouldn't have taken the job.
Trump is intuitive, way more than other people.
Trump is good at persuasion, more than people realize.
Trump has an excellent memory.

I found the "audible learning" portion interesting. This is really a talent, whether Christie or Hewitt realize it.

Given that he heard a lot of stuff at all of those parties in New York where he was probably the only one not drinking, and given his excellent memory, the dems really should fear him. LOL!

I will say one other thing about that interview. On the question of loyalty, I think Christie is wrong. I think Trump IS loyal.

He's definitely loyal to the people who voted for him. (Note promises made and kept.)

He's loyal to the troops.

He's at least loyal enough that he gave Jeff Sessions the AG position, which didn't turn out to help him at all.

Listening to Booker, Harris, Blumenthal, Hirono, et. al. I am starting to question their academic credentials. One of the first rules of interviewing is to ask questions that you all ready know the answers. And if not, ask in a factual not speculative manner.
