President is due to arrive in France in about half an hour.



Thread by a leftist reporter who was asked asked whether he was fake news at LAX:

"Wow. Just... wow. Just went through LAX immigration. Presented my journalist visa and was stopped by the CBP agent and accused of being part of the ‘fake news media’."

Read the whole thing!

Personally, I doubt it happened. Nor do I think the head of Border Patrol called him. They are now trying to make themselves victims and martyrs.

Yes, Trump does this over and again. Proposes something that sounds ridiculous. The press criticizes him for going off the farm. The man is insane and doesn't understand his authorities.

Trump fires back - what about this this law - that does give me the authority?

Trump is the ultimate troll. He says something. The press fires back. Trump ends the conversation.

There is no way these confrontations aren't scripted without Trump having foreknowledge.


jim nj,

I totally agree. The Greenland thing was another example.

I believe the guy meant Bay of Biscay.

WHEELS DOWN! AIR FORCE ONE has landed in France.


I am heading back to bed for a bit.


You may wonder what life was like before the Reagan administration. Clearly, this guy would have been locked safely away because he is absolutely insane:

If you are wondering what you can do about climate change:

The world's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capitalism as a key requirement to maintaining civilization and a habitable planet.

I mean, if you are looking for something to do.


This is my boss, Fredrick Hegel. He's quite a guy. This is Karl Marx, he's repellent. He's one guy who knows how to sponge off the Bourgeoisie. My name is Lenin. I read both of them, which ain't easy, because when they met, it was murder.

Good morning all! There's a kerfuffle in the UK about Trump wanting to buy the NHS, which is just plain loco.

The heads exploding are better than the fireworks at Disneyland.

Thanks for the A-10 article. Glad to hear that news. Obama was content to shitcan them.

I remember them making mincemeat of the Iragi troop columns in 1991.

Kick ass, take names.


matt-I guess who saw the pedestrian bridge I told you about?




What could go wrong?


One more, then I'm off to spend some quality time with Athena.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Thanks, hoyden.

TM, *any* exit for RBG could hardly be called "early" at this point. Talk about expired sell-by dates!

At my little chess gathering last evening no one admitted knowing about the NYTs 1619 project. But this was voiced: "Trump is demanding that the Fed devalue the currency! For older people, that brings back bad memories."
I said "Fine. Vote for Warren. Let's proceed directly to Venezuela." This turned out to be a good enough response.

James D.

Morning all

Off to San Diego this morning for work (our “Fall” National Meeting).

I really hate TSA. And airlines generally.

James D.

Here's hoping she makes it to 2021.

Why? She’s a shitty judge with terrible, toxic views and an outsized influence.

I don’t wish death on her but a peaceful - and quiet! - retirement would be a good thing for the country, as well as for her personally.

And then we can get Amy Coney Barrett (or is it the other way around). And we can watch the Dems and MSM alienate tens of millions of voters by losing their shit over a devout Catholic mother of seven.


Tusk can tsk, tsk all he wants.

He won't move the Trump needle one iota.


Good Morning! We had friends visiting yesterday afternoon,so I didn't look at the internet until last night. When I read about RBG, my first thought was what a sh*t storm a confirmation hearing will be in the middle of primary season. Does she plan to stay on the court until her last breath?!

James D.

Does she plan to stay on the court until her last breath?!<.i>

I imagine she plans on staying longer than that, if possible.


Went to a neighborhood get together around the pool last night.

Excuse to drink and not cook dinner:)

It is really good to live someplace where the Libtards know they are best off to keep their mouth shut.




Good job jimmyk!

Jim Eagle

My BIL/SIL are quarantined in their home as the top guns meet in Biarritz. Actually they are there watching the whole blizzard thing👨‍🎨🇧🇪🏌️‍♂️


Good morning JOM!
Thank you, Hoyden!


This is typical of the Trump bashing in the MFM today.


The problem is, Trump has rarely embraced global governance and many economists blame his “America First” approach for propelling the widespread sense of economic uncertainty rippling across the globe.

In the meantime, he will be crafting a deal with Boris.





Includes transcript of their written responses to CNN.





President Trump delivers remarks upon departure. 8 minutes


Captain Hate

I also that think some of what Bush, the Treasury and the FED did, prior to Obama, was also illegal.

Anybody remember when TCO (I think that was his nic) was loudly proclaiming that and lots of people thought he was being trollish?


I pulled that link from this thread, which has several pictures, including President Trump having lunch with President Macron and a couple of Melania's arrival outfir, as well as the Saturday schedule.

Captain Hate

The problem is, Trump has rarely embraced global governance and many economists blame his “America First” approach for propelling the widespread sense of economic uncertainty rippling across the globe.

As much as I hate the globalists, particularly how they stain conservatism with their open borders treason, the protectionists are bottom loaded with dumbasses too. Case in point: I wrote here earlier in the summer how Mrs H and I went to a neat railroad roundhouse in Sugar Creek that's an outstanding collection of steam engines as well as diesels. When we first got there, in the parking lot was a car painted with Pennsylvania RR maroon and old gold, complete with stenciled logos and pin striping that looked very well done. I took some pics of it which I subsequently posted on a Zuckerberg page for the roundhouse figuring that people would find it interesting, which they did from the volume of comments. But included in the comments was one from a polack yinzer stating "a Honda? Oh the irony!" I rolled my eyes and didn't respond because it was pretty transparent what he meant and there's no upside to wrestling with a pig. But someone asked what he meant and he spouted what he and his deadbeat buds bitched about over pitchers of Iron City about how the Jap car manufacturers ruined everything domestically. I can't tell you how many times I heard crap like that from otherwise intelligent people, long after the Japanese economy went completely in the shitter, and how futile it is to try to get them to understand they're wrong.

If DJT can appeal to these guys fine, but they're not kindred souls. At all.



Transcript of remarks at the working lunch with President Macron and President Trump.



That was a very interesting tweet by that reporter (from the Washington Post, surprisingly) and the replies have a lot of information, too.

I was especially interested in how the Chinese have endeavored to place China-friendly candidates in many of the governments of the West.

Les Nessman

It'd be extra ironic if that Honda was made in Ohio.

Captain Hate

That was one bubble popper, Les. Along with domestic railroads surely transported them to wherever they got put on trucks, assuming they weren't all on trucks from the port of entry.


It's a glorious day with temps in the low 70's. I am going to go outside for a while.

matt - deplore me if you must

The Japanese have a huge presence in the US with factories all over the place. I think most are non-union, but pay just as well as the Big Three. They came in. Their supply chain came in and tens of thousands of Americans build those cars. Kia and Hyundai also have large plants here.

China owns most of the Belt & Road bordering governments, but there is huge discontent. They don't play nice and all the profits flow back to China.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I love the comments on that World Bank twitter thread.
The World Bank studiously ensured the loan was not used in Chinese concentration camps.
So I guess loaning money to Mr Hitler to educate Jews would have been dandy so long as he demonstrated the funds would not be used to build ovens.


Unfortunately not on the case against Mark Steyn, but on another, phony scientist Michael Mann forced to pay legal costs: https://tinyurl.com/y2sd7kt2



When I looked up to the sky and jokingly said “I am the chosen one,” at a press conference two days ago, referring to taking on Trade with China, little did I realize that the media would claim that I had a “Messiah complex.” They knew I was kidding, being sarcastic, and just....

....having fun. I was smiling as I looked up and around. The MANY reporters with me were smiling also. They knew the TRUTH...And yet when I saw the reporting, CNN, MSNBC and other Fake News outlets covered it as serious news & me thinking of myself as the Messiah. No more trust!



Not behind the paywall. Important article if you know people who do a lot of shopping through them, especially for children's items.


Ahhhhhhh, I get it now!!! Since there are no borders, why is importing Mexican and el Salvadoran criminals OK, but importing Honda Civics is bad?

Fucking liberal retards.


Yes, the FEDERAL TAX DOLLARS were not used to actually ABORT and KILL the children, those dollars were used pay the rent. The OTHER MONEY paid for the ABORTIONS.

Captain Hate

Michael Mann should achieve Sandusky status on what he's done to that institution of higher learnin'.


This has the video of the meeting between Trump and Macron, the transcript of which I posted earlier this morning:

“Face It, You Probably Got A Tax Cut!” This was a New York Times headline, and it is very true. If Republicans take back the House, and keep the Senate and Presidency, one of our first acts will be to approve a major middle income Tax Cut! Democrats only want to raise your taxes!

North Carolina Governor Cooper Vetoed a Bill that would have required Sheriffs to cooperate with Ice. This is a terrible decision for the great people of North Carolina. He should reverse his decision and get back to the basics of fighting crime!


My mother, like RBG, had a bile duct stent 3X (every 4-5 months)
RBG has less than a year to live.

One other thing .. Ginsburg will be losing weight over the next few months she has left. She won’t feel like eating but she will live, more or less, as long as she eats.


Good morning, I still think Hillary will announce she's running for president in a last ditch, desperate attempt, to bury her criminal past. The party's a mess right now and I think she'll ride in staking a claim for the moderate middle.


In case you want to take a tour of the Obama's new house (before the seas rise). Note everything in the entire house is white.


OOOPS! : https://www.coldwellbankerhomes.com/ma/edgartown/79-turkeyland-cove-rd/pid_30921770/

Comanche Voter

Justice Ginsberg is a tough old girl. But I doubt that she will make it to 2024 (I'm assuming that Trump will win re-election). The megillah that will occur over her replacement is going to be epic.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Only at the SCOTUS is the possible departure of an 86 year old mummified squirrel called an "early exit".


I heard that Ginsbergs replacement is going to be a GANG RAPIST.

Yeah, we're supposed to be nice to the old coot.

That's who we are.

Old Lurker

Dead or even barely alive, RBG will be a great GOTV movement for the Progs. If dead, the GOPe will wither under pressure not to confirm another Trump pick "since he might be impeached or will certainly lose the election", and if barely alive, Roberts will carry papers to her house for her to mark with an X to pretend she is active on SCOTUS, then the Progs will have a rallying cry to ensure her future replacement is named by a Prog.

Best thing for Trump is she dies, he nominates Barret, and the GOPe a**holes in the Senate cram her through. I can see the first two, but not the third part.


Hi, Jane. Emailed the old account of yours I used to see if it still works.


I find it suspicious that we haven't heard one damn word about her health UNTIL it looked like Trump's impeachment was not gonna fly and it was obvious that the GOP has a bazillion more dollars than the dems.


MM, she's been treated for 3 weeks. It is odd that no one reported that until now.



I also noticed that while the GOP didn't say much (other than President Trump tweeting about it yesterday) David Axelrod was Johnny-on-the-Spot to start marshalling the troops to oppose whoever Trump would nominate.

MM, she's been treated for 3 weeks. It is odd that no one reported that until now.

Not so odd for a bunch of propagandists with obvious agendas.


Paul Sperry‏ @paulsperry_

BREAKING: Host city Charlotte expecting so many violent protests at GOP National Convention (Aug. 24-27, 2020) that CMPD has denied all officer vacation requests during the event. No one can take off. CMPD already training w Secret Service, drilling for mass shootings, even riots


Miss M, the circus is coming to Milwaukee next year, and it will be a riot. Literally.

I believe the FIRE DEPARTMENT will need to cancel all vacations.


I ran across this thread just now on Twitter. This is the wrapped version and it is about how smart Trump has been on this trade deal with China. It was fairly easy for me to understand and I would like to know what the people who understand finance and bonds and things like that think about it.


Captain Hate

The Paste Eater said 40 people were killed at Kent State. It was just like Tiananmen Square only small, really really small.

My response to the movie reviewer Dyer who claimed to have been questioned about "Fake News"...

"Assuming it actually happened...

It shouldn't have. But the CBP agent is also a citizen with First Amendment rights to make certain observations.

Trump has zero to do with it. The lying and overt political bias of "journalists" has everything to do with it."

Another Bob

Neo: "My mother, like RBG, had a bile duct stent 3X (every 4-5 months)
RBG has less than a year to live."

God help us. Potentially right in the middle of the presidential election campaign.

Stock up on food and ammo...


This article was written by one of my former students, Madeline Fry. She references Dr. Sellers who taught her in 12th grade and she was my student when in 9th grade. We're all proud of her.

I thought some of you might enjoy it. It's about Fahrenheit 451.




AP Exclusive: NC county illegally removed kids from homes


Even Ole Neil knew there were only four dead in Ohio.


Not surprising at all:



I really like Richard Grenell, don't you?

U.S. Ambassador To Germany Richard Grenell on having a united front with Europe: “Look, let me be very clear, if we want a united front then Europe needs to dial-up, we don’t need to dial back. The fact of the matter is our economy is the one that’s humming”


Jim Eagle


Also, Frederick’s favorite book. That and Boys in the Boat. He had to read it for summer reading between 7th and 8th grade then again last year in English lit. He says censoring the internet is today’s F.451:)

Jim Eagle

If we are going to eventually have a gay POTUS I hope it’s Grennell and not some Prog tranny.



What a wonderful article about Ray Bradbury and Fahrenheit 451! I had to read it in high school, myself.

Lit teacher: James Fulcher, Korean War Marine vet and had learned karate. Got everyone's attention the first day by kicking the front of the old oak teacher's desk with his heel while sitting on top of it. Actually made a dent in the front!

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

I probably missed Robin's reply but this made me smile so I'm posting it again.
Click and scroll down a bit to see the "I'm your huckleberry" craftwork!

My reader who left the Ravelry knitting site after it banned Trump supporters reported, "This popped up on my new knitting group..."



Grenell was a very early supporter of President Trump's, which was exceptionally brave of him as both a gay man and a State Department employee (which I think he was at the time although resigned to advise the campaign).

I was very pleased that he got appointed to the German ambassadorship.


And romney was one of the firsr to shut him down:



It works but I never go near it.

Try Medusajtw@icloud


"I really like Richard Grenell, don't you?"

I've met him and had dinner with him and just love him. He's also very typical of all my gay friends. You never notice.


I always liked this from Will Rogers:
“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”


RIP, sweet Lili. ❤️

Is that your German Shepherd, Lili-Beth? If so did she just pass? Sincere condolences if so.



RIP to your beautiful Lili. I am sorry for your loss.

CH Yes, that’s my girl. She was almost 12, old for a shepherd, but she acted like a pup to the end. She collapsed this week doing what she loved - chasing a bunny.

Thank you and MM too.

MM @ 2:01

That story is horrible but not surprising. Inespdcially joyed this:

The practice of using private custody agreements was implemented by longtime county and DSS attorney Scott Lindsay, who was recently fired from the agency.

Lindsay declined to say why he bypassed the court system to remove children, or how many of the arrangements his agency made over the years. He provided legal services for DSS for nearly two decades.

That guy needs to be asked the same question under oath in front of a judge.


Oh, dear, Lili-Beth. My heart breaks for you. I’m so sorry.


So sorry for your loss of Lili, Lili-beth! She was a beautiful girl. Growing up we only had German Shepherds and they were such good dogs -- devoted, loyal and very protective.

Jim Eagle


Was Lilly a Shepard or Malinois? My Shepard when I was a kid drove my Dad nuts. Beside stealing burgers off the outside grill he also destroyed my Dad's nascent chicken raising hobby:) May she rest in peace and meet Will Rogers.
