And any sane person should care what a lying communist whore thinks because why, exactly?

Narciso


I thinks he harps too much on the last point:

Former Palm Beach Sheriff & current whistleblower John Dougan has 1.5 terabytes of evidence from the original Epstein investigation

In an interview with @westall_sarahw he says one video is a current top media exec raping a minor

Surely not related to @abcnews #EpsteinCoverup..

I can certainly appreciate why most believe Epstein was murdered. But would you convict someone if there were a 25% chance that the accused were innocent?

Fractures of the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage in suicidal hanging.

RESULTS:

Twenty male cases of suicidal hanging were reviewed. Fractures of the hyoid bone and/or thyroid cartilage were found in five cases (25%). Two cases ofthe hyoid bone fracture, two cases of thyroid cartilage fracture, and one case was both bone fractures. Mean age of all cases, non-fracture, and fracture cases were 42.40, 35.93, and 61.80 years, respectively The knot was at the back of the neck in most cases (12 cases, 60%) and at the left, front, and right in four, two, and two cases, respectively. However there was no relation between location ofthe knot at the neck and fractures of hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage (p=1). Incomplete and complete hanging were found in 11 and nine cases. Five cases with fractures of the hyoid bone and/or thyroid cartilage were incomplete hanging. The visual and palpatory examination did not detect the fracture of hyoid bone in all 20 cases but stereomicroscopy and stereomicroscopy with Toluidine blue stain detected fracture in three cases. For detecting thyroid cartilage fractures, all three methods had the same result.

CONCLUSION:

Fractures of the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage in 25% of Thais who died of suicidal hanging were related with older ages and incomplete hanging but not related with location of the knot. The stereomicroscopic method is fast and effective in detecting fractures of the hyoid bone and thyroid cartilage.

Jane: I don’t see any chance at consequences except exposure. Can someone tell me I’m wrong?

Okay. You’re wrong.

[Actually, you are correct, and that’s how it should be.]

Messing with the free flow of information to "correct" it, leads to different and invariably worse problems. The process is always subject to capture.

That said, consequences will come, and those consequences will be positive. The MSM will find they undermined their own pedestal.

They won’t have been shoved off the pedestal for having been mendacious since it will have melted for "talent" showing themselves to be irrelevant, unnecessary, and unreliable.

Who needs them? Credentials don’t count. Popularity counts less. Consistent usefulness is what matters.

Under the lights, Brian Stelter’s make-up runs just as rapidly as Dan Rather's.

jimmyk

Yeah, Bevin looks to be in trouble. Well, if Kentuckians want a D governor they have to suffer the consequences. I won’t lose any sleep over it. Apparently Bevin pissed off a lot of people.

94 percent reporting in Kentucky, Gov Bevin (R) trails by 1 percent, or about 12-13k votes. Could still go either way.

Jane

The area yet to be counted in the Bevin race is conservative. Hope that helps.

Lowry has been pretty pro Trump for awhile. He was never as nuts as FRENCH and Goldberg.

Narciso

With 99% in, its still 12,000 votes ahead.

Popping in to brag on the younger Beastette who started as a radiographic technologist with the VA last Thursday!! I asked her how it was going, and she said working five days a week is tough! I reminded her that she worked two days last week, two days this week, and had two days off over the weekend... 😂

I also told her that her grandfathers - both Army veterans - would be over the moon with her choice of career and employer. She’s aware of that, of course, and understands and appreciates the connection. Me, too... :)

Narciso

Wonderful beasts.

Jane

SBW,

You are right, as usual. It still pisses me off,

boris

TR addressing Clarise:

"I suggest you take your own advice and read the story as well. Once you do you will see that my comment was correct"
That seems like a good example of how discourse goes sideways. The example quote from the article (in part):
underlings of Nxivm leader Keith Raniere recruited young women to work as nannies in an upstate New York compound run by [Nxivm]
Which in order for TR to be correct and Clarice to be wrong requires an inference which apparently TR believes to be just as good as proof.

And it is not IMO just as good as proof.

So the last line ...

"Do you really think the recruited young women actually ended up working as nannies?"
... looks gratuitous to me.


Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Boris, yup

Captain Hate

Beasts!!

The Infamous Ignatz

Isn't Bevins quite unpopular in Kentucky with his approval down in the 30s?

Jane

According to Insty he lost but all the other republicans won.

Captain Hate

Yes, I think DJT almost breathed life into a political corpse. Plus Cocaine Mitch doesn't like him. The down ticket races were uniformly red.

Narciso

Cant dissagree:

The Infamous Ignatz

--Would that region in Mexico be the home region to white Mormon girls? Also, sounds like that Mormon community is a mission. They wouldn't need to become nannies to escape the drug cartel violence. They would just go back to their permanent home in the US.--

As you say, details are insufficient, but there are a couple of Mormon colonies, not missions, in the Sonora area, remnants of the large Mormon colonies there before the Mexicans ran them out.

Another Bob

Correct Jane, and Cocaine Mitch got the first republican AG since 1948 and the first black AG in state history elected.

Tom R

Boris,

When searching for a reason why discourse go sideways, why did you ignore the initial comment from Clarice?

TomR and MM, read the damn Post story-

Her comment implied neither I or MM understood what we read. JOM Double Standard at play again?

Narciso

No just being a jackalope, tom r:

JM Hanes

Sounds like the NXIVM cult "recruited" girls almost exactly the same way the Japanese recruited their "comfort women" from the Koreans - promised them great jobs and good wages they could send home to their families from Manchuko or wherever. The women had no idea they were going to be prostituted to the Japanese troops.

BTW, Tom R, I thought a lot, or most, of the Mormons there were actually born in Mexico, presumably to US citizens which is why they had dual citizenships. Young girls might well have been both Mexican AND white, of course.

clarice

Thanks, Boris.

There's a shock.

boris

If the story was perfectly ambiguous your comeback still was way over the top.

I do not read the story as perfectly ambiguous. Appears to me there is a conventional interpretation and an unconventional interpretation.

If the unconventional interpretation did not occur to Clarice then her initial comment makes sense.

And if your unconventional interpretation is actually mistaken then it's all on you TR.

Tom R

JMH @ 10:00

If the Mormons were sending their own daughters to NXIVM, I think that warrants further investigation. Were they ignorant of what NXIVM was?

Narciso

Besides the particulars, this was an extraordinarily savage crime, i think lopez obrador encouraged it with his cowardly atandown in culiacan

Tom R

Boris,

Got it. If you think someone doesn't understand an article they link, then telling them to read the damn article is perfectly acceptable. I will remember that for future use.

Narciso

Furthermore, the folks who plug the xartel tv evening bloc were relatively without much words.

Marlene and Mom22:

Thanks for your thoughts on the at risk candidates. It's depressomg tp to hear that even Susan Collins may not be purple enough for Maine any longer. I can imagine conservatives must be torn, as I am, about contributing to her campaign!

Mom22:

"Still steaming from this comment 'Perdue has his work cut out for him in this demographically shifting state. He needs to turn out rural, conservative voters who are loyal to the president, while not turning off well-educated, suburban voters repelled by Trump.'"

I'm right there with you! Awhile back Condi Rice was getting props for defending Trump voters, but when I read what she said, I wrote some of it down, and meant to comment on it myself. She, too, was just stuck in the conventional wisdom, offering up sympathy for those where were "disadvantaged by globalization" or the "unemployed coal miner in West Virginia," or the "opioid addicted person in Pennsylvania." Bless her little heart! She has no idea who we all are, either.

Almost everyone who talks about Trump voters makes that same sort of mistake -- even NeverTrumpers on the right, or maybe especially them. Maybe it wouldn't be so irritating, if we start thinking of ourselves as Trump's secret weapons.

Romney's father was born in a Mormon colony in Mexico, but they came back to the US when the Mexican Revolution broke out.

Gah! henry already reported about Romney's Mexican roots.

I suspect recruitment was probably more subtle than "would you like to send your nubile young daughters to be nannies for our sex cult?"

Plus, I can easily imagine that there are plenty of folks living in Mexico who have never even heard of the NXIVM cult in the first place.

Dems Change Mind On Border Wall After Realizing It Will Keep People From Leaving When We Switch To Socialism

"We thought the border wall was a bad, racist idea," said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "But then this light bulb turned on over my head. It was actually just a light bulb though, not an actual idea, which was disappointing. But that got me thinking about trying to have an idea. And I got an idea: when we switch to socialism, everyone's gonna try to run away. But what if there's a big, solid object along the border? Then they can't run away. I mean, they could try to climb, but we could shoot them."

Millennial Wishes There Were Some Historical Examples Of Socialism We Could Study To Have Some Idea How It Might Turn Out

"If only there were other countries that have tried socialism before," Hatter said to a friend at an ethical coffee shop, Commiebrews, Monday afternoon, after he finished his paper route. "Then, we could see if there are any pitfalls."

Hatter said it'd be nice if there were books that covered things like world history and economics that we could read.

It's my understanding that all "Brady" material is required to be handed over before the start of a trial. That it actually needs to be delivered in a timely fashion so that the defense team has enough time to absorb it.

Yet some lawyer is claiming it isn't required before a plea deal? How can that be? It makes no sense.
