Anonamom's Svetlana Lohkova thread - worth the read:

I read the Svetlana thread.

I'm doubling down on my belief that "journalists" should be at the "top of the list".

The MSM screamed that Bibi's talk of annexation would be destabilizing. Sure enough, he's reelected, and:

Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, a tycoon from the UAE, called on the Gulf States to seek “peace and cooperation with Israel,” economically and scientifically, as well as in agriculture and defense.

Al Habtoor posted a video on Twitter calling on the Gulf States to declare peace and with Israel while underscoring that the biggest enemy is Iran and not Israel.

Somebody should pull Kamala aside and explain that she isn't as young as she used to be, and the country isn't as desperate as Willie Brown used to be.

I can imagine Trump going there, on the debate stage.

Guess I'm not "woke" yet:)

Sorry to say but @foxandfriends is by far the best of the morning political shows on television. It rightfully has BY FAR the highest ratings, not even close. Morning Psycho (Joe), who helped get me elected in 2016 by having me on (free) all the time, has nosedived, too Angry...

....Dumb and Sick. A really bad show with low ratings - and will only get worse. CNN has been a proven and long term ratings and beyond disaster. In fact, it rewarded Chris Cuomo with a now unsuccessful prime time slot, despite his massive failure in the morning. Only on CNN!

“Harley Davidson has struggled with Tariffs with the EU, currently paying 31%. They’ve had to move production overseas to try and offset some of that Tariff that they’ve been hit with which will rise to 66% in June of 2021.” @MariaBartiromo So unfair to U.S. We will Reciprocate!

“The best thing ever to happen to Twitter is Donald Trump.” @MariaBartiromo So true, but they don’t treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people. Different names-over 100 M.....

.....But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games. No wonder Congress wants to get involved - and they should. Must be more, and fairer, companies to get out the WORD!

MM, you earned your rest. I had assumed last evening took its toll, and you were recharging.
Nothing is harder for me than seeing loved one's suffering, and feel helpless to diminish the pain.

You are helping though, by your presence. As did everyone else who showed up last night.
I am glad she lives nearby, and has her boys. You are right about the evenings. That is what my momma and her merry widow friends all found the toughest.

She looks like a dragged out cum dumpster in every recent picture. Her taste in clothes isn't as wretched as Mooch's (faintest possible praise) but it isn't as flattering as her funhouse mirror is telling her.

KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

Buckeye

In my inbox this morning:

Have you ever noticed that laws that promise to protect the public “actually bolster the corporate bottom line.”

For example, the ongoing and furthering of “The Asbestos Transparency Act” didn’t help people exposed to asbestos. It was written by corporations who wanted to make it harder for victims to recoup money.

The “HOPE Act,” introduced in nine states, was written by a conservative advocacy group to make it more difficult for people to get food stamps.

At the same time, it enriches private contractors by outsourcing the work of verifying people’s eligibility for social-support programs, including Medicaid and SNAP (food stamps).

Those who likely qualify for assistance off of these programs get thrown under the bus to improve profitability for the private contractors.

All under the guise of “Helping People.”

Talk about Orwellian.

These points (along with yesterday’s rant) are only a few things that get my blood boiling. (Can you tell?)

Add in the fact that 2019, The Political Year from Hell, is only in its fourth month and you’ll see how the term crazy may be an understatement.

Oh!

And while I’m ranting, what ever happened to Larry Silverstein? (who famously signed a 99-year lease on the World Trade Center complex in June 2001, two months before the attacks).

Silverstein took out an insurance plan that just happened to cover terrorism.

After 9/11, Silverstein took the insurance company to court, claiming he should be paid double because there were 2 attacks.

He won, and was awarded $4,550,000,000 (He originally claimed $7.1 Billion).

My question is, what happens to guys like this or corporations that write laws like “The Asbestos Act” or The Hope Act?”

Do they just slither under another rock somewhere?

Naahhhh!

Hopefully they’ll be in the spotlight soon when the indictments start to fall…quite possibly before 2019 is over.

The writer dislikes the GOPe as much as he dislikes the Dems.

Buckeye,

Extraneus,

I took it upon myself to post his tweets here. Not everyone here is on Twitter, for one thing, and for another (as he alluded to in that long rant about Twitter) not all of his tweets will show up on your timeline even if you follow him.

It's my small contribution to this site and to MAGA. So I am thankful when I oversleep or have to be absent that henry picks up for me. I know I don't have to do it, but I do.

Beasts of England

Thanks, Extraneus!

Extraneus

It's a strange thing Reynolds has about his comment section. Probably because he went so long without allowing comments, he seems to think it's such a great favor to his readers that they should be thanking him on their knees. Most of his weird open thread messages seem to result from this thinking.

Extraneus

It didn't need any accompaniment, Buckeye, including the vinegar sauce, but I did have some of that. :-)

Melinda

Ext-


After some chats, I bet the comments section results in reducing his email down to a rush from a firehose. He does use tips emailed to him, which would be hard to see if not for the responses flooding that address.

And I'm sure there are no lefty flaming bags dropped off there either.

Just a side take.

MissMarple2

Buckeye,

Regarding that state visit: you KNOW that we will be treated to gossipy "leaks" from the palace (manufactured crap) about how gauche Trump behaved.

I will be satisfied that Melania will stand next to Camilla and the contrast will be striking. HA!

What does it say about the modern-day Democrat Party that @BernieSanders and @KamalaHarris seem more concerned about giving mass murderers like the Boston Marathon Bomber voting rights, than protecting the civil rights of law abiding American citizens who legally own guns?

The immediate point of interest in Russiagate at the moment .. Don McGahn.
Don McGahn stopped his POTUS from doing "stupid things" while Rhodes, Rice, Clapper, Brennan et al helped their POTUS to do "stupid things". Perhaps, a more cynical press may have helped, but that's water under the bridge.

I am beginning to feel a big envious of the ad/media people responsible for Trump 2020! Has there ever been a richer source from which to draw? I'm sure the talented amateurs online will come up with some great ones as well.

Yesterday I went out with some of my mom's friends to celebrate her upcoming birthday and sat next to an old friend who is a retired missionary to a majority muslim country in asia. Apparently there was a gap at some point in their obtaining a renewal of their visa and they were sent to sri lanka to a church there. Her tone in discussing the bombings and anger reminded me that they must have believed for decades with being told they might be killed simply for being christian missionaries.

When Jr. was inducted Phi Beta Kappa, the group was not very diverse, and not very big. A few Asians and a bunch of "white" kids.

This was at the largest undergraduate University in the country.

It's interesting to me because these same institutions give presentations now and have for the last five years at least proclaiming that they "want to be majority minority" institutions when that doesn't fit the population or their applying students' demographic. That makes it clear that the criteria then warps the expectations throughout.

I also am not sure when this selection as a junior designation began. Like I said, I found it interesting especially after the treatment of the christakis' couple. https://www.city-journal.org/free-speech-camille-paglia
