Mr. McGuire,

I don't think they will moderate, due to the influence of social media and the press, which is no longer cut from Walter Cronkite's mold.

henry

Carter and Clinton as “moderate.” And a racing stripe on a Pacer made it a fast car.*

MissMarple2

henry,

Good point. Carter and Clinton used their southern accents and church-going to give the impression of moderation.

When we really look at their actions, it's not quite as presented, is it?

Marlene

Biden was confronted by protesters yesterday,shouting at him about the deportations during the Obama administration. "Movimiento Cosecha" is another group to add to the list of leftist protesters.
I don't think they will moderate either and Biden will be more confused and be mumbling "c'mon man"more often. :)

Seems like the governor of Puerto Rico was left out of the round up last week. It could be that it would be expensive for the Feds to fetch him while he’s on vacation in the south of France, but I’m going to go with a different tack. The Feds wanted to know to whom he’d chat with afterwards, since they already knew he would:

Tom Bowler

Kevin Drum wonders if the Democrats are now the party of open borders and makes a courageous admission:

I have previously criticized Republicans who accused liberals of wanting “open borders.” President Trump tweets about this endlessly. But I have to admit that it’s hard to see much daylight between Warren’s plan and de facto open borders.

Drum has come to a which realization?
a.) Democrats really are the party of open borders.
b.) This BS about Democrats not being the party of open borders ain't gonna play in Peoria.

I go with answer b.

GUS

They ENCOURAGE ILLEGAL CROSSINGS, then they pretend to shit their pants at what THEY'VE done.

matt - deplore me if you must

The protesters at the detention facilities should take another tack if they want to really change hearts and minds. For every illegal released into the country, one protester should emigrate too Guatemala. That's only fair, amirite??

Thread at NYT:

When Jeffrey Epstein returned to New York years ago after being branded a sex offender, his reputation appeared to rise. It was no accident.

https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/1150099687334133761?s=21

henry

In that NYT thread:

The year after he got out of prison, Katie Couric, Chelsea Handler and George Stephanopoulos came to his Manhattan mansion to dine with a British royal. And in 2011, he was photographed at a “billionaire’s dinner” attended by Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk.

Another Bob

Alison | July 13, 2019 at 09:42 AM on the last thread...

Didn’t start that way. But once regular disagreement was expressed with conclusions and methods used to arrive at them, the tone deteriorated into personal “I’m better than you”.

Not engaging on that set of topics seems wise, which is what many are doing.

Another Bob

MM, tampering with like counts isn’t illegal. Scumbaggy yes, not illegal.

I’m wondering if that wasn’t some technical issue twitter has.

Another Bob

On topic...

Unfortunately for MKE denizens, 1968 Chicago remains in-play I think. If the “justice” dems don’t win or get otherwise granted a meaningful chunk of power, they’ll call in the crazies.

Anyone suspecting the “antifa” thugs are being run by the same zanies running the “justice dems”?Posted by: Alison | July 13, 2019 at 09:42 AM

Jane

With more things like Epstein coming out, it is more and more obvious why the dems hate Trump. He's clean and they are dirty. That's been my theory from early on.

And I figure lots of republicans are dirty too. We need a law that says no one in Congress can run for President.

Another Bob, after the Occupoop in Madison in ‘11, I expect full on stupid in Milwaukee next summer. The question is how far does it spill? Do they follow the bus lines to hit “red” areas, like say the Brookfield Mall? I don’t think they are stupid enough to try anything out where I live. Farmers are armed, and have backhoes to “fix drainage issues.”

Another Bob

They’re not going to kill and bury people Henry.

What is true is the police-to-moron ratio will be low, so the local opposition will feel less “constrained” to respond in kind, which is exactly why it won’t happen. The lefty thugs are fundamentally cowards.

Last I heard, local “vibrants” were already creating problems at the malls. (Southridge and Mayfair?)

Another Bob

BTW, do they already have plans to call up national guard to augment the cops?

henry

Indeed on south ridge and Mayfair. Both in Milwaukee County. Nothing new there. Add the state fair to the zone of troubles, and Summerfest’s main entrance. It has been calmer lately, but import some crazies and who knows.

As far as farm response. If they start harming cows (those farting threats to the planet), all bets are off.

Rural mischief is more likely a bus load or two down highway 11 in union grove. (Repeating ‘11 intimidation). Police would deal with that.

Manuel Transmission

Went to our little yacht club for dinner last night which we generally only do about once a month. Ended up chatting with one of our pals (a couple) in the bar and started talking about all the Epstein nonsense. So the wife of the couple starts telling a story. Turns out her first husband was a mover/shaker type with both a G-II and a G-4! As with most of those players he offered rides for various bigshots and certainly was not too biased on which side of the political spectrum just to keep his options open. Now, a second element: a lady who acted as a flight attendant on these company planes was key to everyone's comfort on these flights. She was apparently a plain woman, who sort of disappeared in the small groups, but spoke five languages and was very sharp.

So, one day the boss (the ex) offered a ride to some young governor and his entourage. After the trip, the attendant told the boss to never offer them a ride again!

You guessed it, the Clintoons. She said they spent the whole time slamming their adversaries and scheming on how to fuck them over. Totally disgusting mob.

henry

Another Bob, call up the National Guard? Evers is on the other side, much like the Portland mayor. I’ll be shocked if Ablee or Barrett let the Sheriffs or Police do much. We don’t have Sheriff Clarke or Scott Walker in power anymore.

Ugh,the Clintons. I think I mentioned this a few years ago. We rented a house in Florida for three months before buying a place.Hubby took a flight back to Maine to work in the office for a week. The connection was in Philly. The man sitting next to him was from Scranton. They started talking politics. The man's friend owned a restaurant where the funeral reception for Hillary's father was held.
In our world,the family pays the expenses. Hillary and her brothers stiffed the restaurant owner and eventually the DNC paid the bill.
They are horrible people.

Who Is Mike Gravel, The Former Democratic Senator Who Told House Dems To ‘F–k Off’

Former Alaska Sen. and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Mike Gravel told House Democrats to “fuck off” after the caucus’s Twitter account attacked Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Friday.

The caucus called out Saikat Chakrabarti for “explicitly singling out a Native American woman of color” when the staffer insinuated in June that freshman Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids of Kansas was enabling a “racist system” when she voted to provide emergency funding for the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

...

Gravel, 89, served in the U.S. Senate from 1969 to 1981. He’s most well-known for effectively declassifying the Pentagon Papers by reading them into the Senate record in 1971.

I was listening to a talk radio show in the car one day and heard a caller from Concord MA call in and tell the host that one of the two Dunkin's in Concord has a sign on the front door that says, "coffee served in fine china when requested." Having a close friend from Concord, I couldn't wait to ask him if Dunkin's coffee tastes better when served in fine china rather than the styrafoam cups that us peasants have to suffer. He didn't believe me so we took a trip and sure enough, the sign was there.

MissM posted this on the last thread and a link on that page describes Epstein's shady dealings with African dictators.

When we met in 1986, Epstein’s double identity intrigued me — he said he didn’t just manage money for clients with mega-fortunes, he was also a high-level bounty hunter. Sometimes, he told me, he worked for governments to recover money looted by African dictators. Other times those dictators hired him to help them hide their stolen money.

We have a real problem with anti-vaxxers here in California. I decided to go to the farmer's market near UC Irvine this morning an there were a couple of hundred of them completely misrepresenting the medicine behind their claims.

They were basically a lot of soccer moms and what we call in the mental health bidness transitional aged youths. Well meaning, but clueless.

My stepson got his MMR or whatever it is when he was 2 over 25 years ago and is autistic. But I also believe there is a genetic predisposition that one of the vaccines may set off. But all of the many studies are conclusive, so how does one argue with the science?

When I say the whole world is going crazy, maybe there is some truth to that.
