Wow, clarice has TM-level posting privileges? TIL

rich

whoa a thread with no name and clarice dusting off here posting privileges.

Old Lurker

I HATE these black robed tyrants:

Fox: "The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether plans by the Trump administration to end the so-called DACA program for young undocumented immigrants can proceed.

The justices announced Friday they will hear oral arguments on the appeal in its next term, which begins in October. A ruling is expected in the presidential election year, putting the high court at the center of one of the most politically charged issues."

Right up there with yesterday's comment about SCOTUS saying a constitutional act by a constitutional official doing his constitutional job in pursuit of a constitutionally mandated assignment, consistent with how the job had been done by administration after administration down through the ages of this republic...was turned back because Roberts said it smelled funny.

We have become a Saturday Night Live skit from back when they were funny.

Old Lurker

Hi Porch.

:-)

Porchlight

John Roberts sucks. Change my mind.

Porchlight

Hi OL! :)

Old Lurker

Can't do that for you, Porch.

U B Right about Roberts.

Oops. Wrong thread.

Davod

DuckDuckGo worked for me, although I did have to sign back in using Typepad.

henry

the thread with no name... is TM on strike?

Old Lurker

Classy guy, that John Kelly.

Davod

Why is the border wall stupid? The only way to keep people out is with a physical barrier.

Narciso79

Dread pirate roberts (ht marko) is every one of tribes students an idiot?

rich

it is a clarice takeover. she's patrolling with the pistolas!

henry

italics up, don't shoot!

Old Lurker

I think he just called ALL of us stupid, Davod.

Melinda

That's not a pistola in her left hand!!

It's a BANHAMMER!!11!! Run away! Run Away! Run away!

So Kamala Harris proved herself capable if Obama level misdirection?

>>>Why is the border wall stupid? The only way to keep people out is with a physical barrier.

argue the strawman ... of course we aren't going to build the great wall of north america but maybe some actual border enforcement including physical barriers wold be worthwhile.

i still find it strange Gen Kelly got high level administration slots.

Melinda

Yes.

She's now denying she raised he hand on illegales.

I love John McPhee, also, and could care less if he is a liberal. None of his books or essays have been political but fascinating discoveries of writing you can't put down. His books on American geology are an example were detail is welcome.

you don't say!

Old Lurker

I was watching some old movie about NASA sending a probe into deep space but still wanting to control it with radio signals. The lag time for the signal out and back was so long that it made for tense moments.

Strikes me that that is how we are asking Trump to manage the biggest government on this planet. Issue an order. Wait for it to get to some court somewhere. Wait for that court to think about it. Wait for the answer to come home. React and repeat.

Narciso79

I know crazy right?

Who is the clerk who wrote that ridiculous opinion, it's like he look at nfib v sibelius and said hold my beer.

Narciso79

Well they so have telemetry but one cant see what obstacles they face until the signal comes back.

Tom R

Since TK posted it here as well as the last thread, I will bring over my response.


TK,

Thank you for the second Kelly article. Both are reporting on Kelly's comments made at Duke. The titles of both articles demonstrate the gaslighting going on, which apparently you (as well as OL and Davod) fell for.

Kelly never said the border wall was "stupid". That's a leftwinger Vanity Fair writer making shit up. Aside from the title of the article the word "stupid" isn't even included anywhere else in the article. Kelly's position that there is no need for a border wall "from sea to shining sea" is the same position as Trump's. It would indeed be a "waste of money" to build a 30'+ wall in areas where it was not needed, which is why Trump is not advocating for that.

Jane

Bet Clarice has no idea she started a new thread. How fun!

Tom R

of course we aren't going to build the great wall of north America but maybe some actual border enforcement including physical barriers wold be worthwhile.

100% correct and also the same position both Trump and Kelly share. Both articles TK linked (apparently thinking they refuted my criticism of Coulter's dishonest rant) are gaslighting readers to deceive them into thinking Kelly and Trump have opposing opinions on the border wall.

https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/ap-fact-check-trumps-shift-on-a-concrete-border-wall

TRUMP: “These barriers are made of steel, have see-through visibility, which is very important. …We do not need 2,000 miles of concrete wall from sea to shining sea. We never did. We never proposed that. We never wanted that, because we have barriers at the border where natural structures are as good as anything that we can build.” — remarks Friday in Rose Garden.

THE FACTS: Actually, he did pledge a wall made of concrete along the southern border. It’s true he did not say there needed to be 2,000 miles of it.

rich

an fyi i have no idea why tom brought me into his pissing contest. i was responding to davod.

Tom R

Rich,

Because you made the same point Trump and GEN Kelly made which I agreed with.

Porchlight

She's now denying she raised he hand on illegales.

I saw it with my own eyes, as did millions.

Old Lurker

So was I, Rich.

It is not a pissing contest unless somebody pisses back.

Porchlight

It’s true he did not say there needed to be 2,000 miles of it.

And that would be the crucial difference wouldn't it AP, you lying apparatchiks.

“The Congresswoman from Hawaii was talking foreign policy during the debate — specifically the possibility of America going to war with Iran. Important stuff, no doubt. However, as Gabbard spoke many viewers focused on her chin and what appeared to be a tiny zit — nothing that would require Dr. Pimple Popper or anything, but still … it was there,” TMZ reported. “Then it happened. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it … YOU MUST. Within a matter of seconds the blemish simply vanished … AS Tulsi was talking!!! Remember, this is on a close-up camera, ON live television.”

What is going on?

And Yang's microphone suffered individual, and timely outages, like when he would try and speak.

Donna Brazile passed her Dem Secretish bag o' tricks over to Tommy "X as in Marx" Perez.

Hah!

Discussing Tulsi has TK offered up any comments on her being born in American Samoa. At least it's an American conclave unlike Cruz's Canada.

Jane

She's now denying she raised he hand on illegales.

Actually she is saying she didn't understand the question.

Jane

BTW Kamilla isn't black, her parents are both Indians. And she grew up in Canada. And her lies know no bounds.

henry

she is saying she didn't understand the question

what a coincidence. she doesn't understand economics either.

Tom R

Jane,

While her mom is Indian, Kamala's father is Jamaican and a hardcore pro-Communist economics professor who IIRC was on a student visa when she was born. Fully agree with the last sentence.

Porchlight

I think I read that Harris is one quarter black. Her dad is from the West Indies and is half black. And he doesn't support her candidacy at all.

Porchlight

Didn't understand the question. Yeah right. They talked about it for several minutes afterwards. Liar.

henry

Yet if my cloud service is hacked... I go to jail (CA Data Privacy starting Jan 1, Iowa criminal code today). If LEOs can get in, criminals have a welcome mat.

THE DEEP STATE HAS WANTED THIS AT LEAST SINCE THE CLINTON-ERA “CLIPPER CHIP” FIASCO: “Senior Trump administration officials met on Wednesday to discuss whether to seek legislation prohibiting tech companies from using forms of encryption that law enforcement can’t break.” It’s an awful idea, it’s probably unconstitutional, and why would Trump want to give the Deep State more tools to use against Americans?

Porch @ 12:01

Indeed. The political gaslighting going on by Trump, pro-Trump pundits, the Fake News media, Trump's political opponents, you name it, has reached the point of being out of control. Its one of the biggest, if not the biggest, contributors to the infighting that occurs on this blog.

I hope the people here who dislike me realize how TK's two recent links about GEN Kelly clearly demonstrate how fellow Trump supporters are sometimes victims of gaslighting. Both of those articles intentionally and dishonestly twisted Kelly's comments out of context to gaslight both Trump supporters as well as Trump haters.

The leftwingers doing the gaslighting are trying to convince voters that Trump is so bad that GEN Kelly, who is highly respected nationwide, opposes Trump's border wall plan. That is Fake News at it's worst. If anything, since Kelly was Trump's Chief of Staff at the time he was probably the person most likely responsible for convincing Trump that a border wall "from sea to shining sea" was not feasible and a "waste of money". The gaslighting in the two articles has the added bonus of deceiving Trump supporters into thinking GEN Kelly is "backstabbing" Trump and trying to undermine him.

Pretty bad when after listening to those 20 candidates, Kamala Harris is the only one you'd want on your side in a knife fight.

And then, only if she was in front of you.

Porchlight

I can't figure out the Kelly angle, Tom R. I don't trust many sources. Seems not worth fighting about most of the time, though.

Tom R

Porch,

Only reason Kelly is getting discussed now was because of the Ann Coulter oped that got linked yesterday. She indirectly called GEN Kelly an imbecile so I made the comment I thought she was full of shit.

Melinda

Vanity Fair is mostly the former.

How bad is it on the border? This bad:

Unknown medical issues and diseases.
A 10 year old girl found with 20 different semens inside her.

More an inhumanitarian crisis than anything.

You all should pop over to the new thread and check out the nifty chart.

Kamala mother is from India and her father was from Jamaica.

"Jamaica?"
Willie Brown: "Yes, I did."

clarice

Apologize for starting this thread. I've no idea how this happened.

peter

Has anyone investigated whether Kamala Harris might just be Obama in drag? Then we'd have constitutional grounds to stop her/his xhi third term. oh wait, Roberts is still on the bench, anything can happen.
I thought it very curious that Trump mentioned NBC's technical failures in a tweet the other night. Maybe he instinctively was on to something

GUS

20 different "varities" of SEMEN....... DIVERSITY!!!!!!!!!!!

Get WAYFAIR on the phone!!!

GUS

I'm so so so sorry. I thought the 20 varities were inside of KAMALTOE.

Is this Clarice prepping the pistolas?

I don’t believe in reincarnation but this gay trans Aztec person at Taco Bell must have got some kind of Jim Nabors upgrade.

Speaking of Sangre de los Indios, how many so called immigrants from the south aren’t even assimilated into Mexican or Guatemalan culture? Quite a few don’t speak or read Spanish, right?

Pinandpuller

My evergreen podcast DJ Dr E Michael Jones was talking about his trip to Tanzania. He engaged a guy in the few phases of Swahili he knew and the guy went to town. Dr Jones stopped the guy and confessed he wasn’t fluent in Swahili and the guy asked,”Then why did you come to Tanzania?”

There was an old joke that needs to be retired. A person who speaks three languages is trilingual. A person who speaks two languages is bilingual. A person who speaks one language is an American.
