What is sbw's 1:33 in response to?

Buckeye

I'm guessing SBW had to listen to Warren drone on.

CH, Liz Warren is in the news badmouthing people with money. The crime for Warren is success. The opportunity for her is to stoke class warfare.

Elizabeth Warren is one of the smallest of people.

Narciso, I saw Ford v Ferrari the first week it was out. I thought they did a good job of telling the story. didn't give any credit to Eric Broadley and the Lola GT, but that would have taken more time. Maybe too much of the 2 1/2 hours spent on the Ken Miles family theme, but it's possible that viewers who weren't as interested in the cars wanted to see the human story. And as with almost all movies about racing, the mano a mano racing scenes were very fake.

I'm not sure any of them could have beaten The Beast.

I'm pretty sure none of them would have beaten the combination of The Beast and the MSM.

Especially not when every single one of them staffed their campaigns with the same retread advisors and strategists, doing the same things in the same ways as the losing campaigns of 2008 and 2012.

I 100% agree that Princess Paleface is consumed with envy despite achieving an oversized amount of success due to lying and fraud. It seemed like the specific complaint had to do with music copyrights, which piqued my interest.

>>Jon Stewart's legacy is that he'll have had a giant hand in making his political allies stupid.


His legacy is the blurring of news and comedy.
MSM news now wants to be funny and entertaining; comedians all now want to be political pundits.

Life was much better when these two were much more distinct.

Tell me, Liz, if someone is willing to pay a dollar to buy someone’s rendition of a song, how much of that dollar do you want to take away to give to others?

What Lizzie leaves out, of course, is that the dollar that's spent on buying a song, or a DVD, or a movie ticket, or whatever, is spent from what consumers have left over AFTER they've paid the salaries of police and firefighters and teachers (and politicians and bureaucrats) via their taxes, and also AFTER they've paid for their housing costs and their utility bills and food and so forth.

Free citizens have the right to pay for whatever entertainment they want to; who the eff is Lizzie Warren to say that they shouldn't have that right, or that the people who provide that entertainment shouldn't get paid for it?

Jim Eagle

Let us not forget a non-politician, black Neurosurgeon, named Ben, who garnered national attention using a spiritual moment at the National Prayer Breakfast to bitch-slap Zippy in front of a bunch of elites in the National Cathedral.

Plus he was the only candidate of either party to have a movie made about him off his biography.

And we also had another businessman and another black in Herman Cane who at one time was leading until the press decided it was time to spill some putrid beans on him.

Trump is dying.

I love how CNN's article about Trump's doctor said "We know that
Trump is 73, has heart disease, and is clinically obese". Hmm, when did
he have heart disease? Are we talking about how every 73 year old man
has some form of heart disease, just like they have an enlarged
pancreas? And clinically obese? Like 90% of Americans are "clinically"
obese?

I hate these fucks. Meanwhile, questioning Hillary for 2 solid years as she coughed up lizard eggs, fell down more stairs than the Odessa Steps in Battleship Potempkin and spazzed out like Pee Wee Herman on bad acid was all conspiracy theory. Yet people still watch/read this crap.

John S

Narciso, they have the GT40 (Matt Damon) and the Ferrari P3 running side-by-side at 180 mph and the drivers exchanging looks with each other. Another time they have one car pull alongside another and bump it, like NASCAR was maybe 50 years ago. Just looks very fake, but not as fake as Tom Cruse in his NASCAR movie. That was real bumper cars.

Jim Eagle

I know a lot of 73 y.o. guys and even though they are early risers they still don't have the 24/7 energy Trump demonstrates every day. That an the mental acuity he uses to protect, project and profess our American values both here and abroad.

Zippy was the opposite in that regard.

Narciso

Good to know, the impact would be greater at that speed to, right.

One more from my Greek-American friend who owns more MickeyD's than anyone:

A woman, cranky because her husband was late coming home again, decided to leave a note, saying, "I've had enough and have left you...don't bother coming after me" Then she hid under the bed to see his reaction.
After a short while the husband comes home and she could hear him in the kitchen before he comes into the bedroom. She could see him walk towards the dresser and pick up the note...
After a few minutes he wrote something on it before picking up the phone and calling someone... "She's finally gone...yeah I know, about bloody time, I'm coming to see you, put on that sexy french nightie. I love you...can't wait to see you...we'll do all the naughty things you like."

He hung up, grabbed his keys and left.
She heard the car drive off as she came out from under the bed. Seething with rage and with tears in her eyes she grabbed the note to see what he wrote..."I can see your feet. We're outta bread: be back in five minutes."

A nice thread on the Brookings Institute:

Rising serpent
@rising_serpent
1. Fiona Hill testified she received an advance copy of the Steele dossier from Strobe Talbott, former president of the Brookings Institution.
According to Hill, Steele was her counterpart whom she met with in 2016 and in prior years. She called the dossier a "rabbit hole"

Rising serpent @rising_serpent
For all of Fiona Hill's pseudo-patriotic, nonpartisan gobbledegook, she neglected to inform Trump about the Steele dossier, which she received in advance
Repubs thought it unimportant to ask how Brookings institution happened to get it in the first place.

Republican Sen. John Cornyn, who faces his own reelection fight this year, is practically licking his chops at the thought of Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, along with independent Bernie Sanders, sidelined from the campaign trail in the weeks leading up to the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3 and the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 11.

Hopefully poetic justice will kick in and the Democrats end up shooting themselves in the foot twice over the sham impeachment.

JiB @ 4:38

I (and I imagine Trump as well) am perfectly fine with all the unhinged leftwingers displaying their negativity and hatred. I think the end result is it is helping him get re-elected.

Do you believe rational, independent swing voters are swayed by the negativity to vote for Democrats?

JM Hanes

Hello from Salt Lake City! I’ve never seen such a quantity of wheelchairs lined up on a single exit ramp before. Light snow, low ceiling but getting to Bozeman sometime today still looks doable.


JiB:

I like the President’s tweets, especially when custom delivered to us by Miss Marple and henry, which is very different from when I go there myself. I’ve begun to feel like Twitter is something we all do together, a kind of JOM community bonding with each other and the Prez. If you do look at the replies, maybe it would help to think that every nasty message represents another idiot who is not actually doing anything useful to help Democrcrats get or stray elected.

YMMV, of course.

MissMarple2

Jack,

We do not have cable. Can't afford it, and I imagine a lot of lower income households are in the same boat.

Trump's tweets are a gold mine of information and you don't need to read the replies. I copy the text ones over to here, and the ones in which you do see replies if you click on them (the ones which have videos attached) you can just skip.

I am glad the President uses Twitter and lets us know what he's thinking. You can just read the ones I post here and ignore the site. Jack the owner doesn't make any money off me scanning tweets and copying them to here.

I also appreciate the people who use it to post investigative work. A lot of those people don't have enough money to start their own web sites.

There are plenty of positive things on Twitter. There are a lot of animal rescue sites, charities, etc. I follow a lot of those as well as the political ones.

Twitter is my news aggregator, since Drudge went all left wing. It's how I find links to post here. You can just avoid going there, but I am going to continue to use it until something better comes along.

Tom R

From Salena Zito:

https://nypost.com/2019/11/23/rust-belt-voters-on-trump-id-vote-for-him-again-in-a-heartbeat/

Polls echo this dynamic. Earlier this month, Cook Political Report election analyst Amy Walter crunched numbers from a recent New York Times/Siena poll to show that Trump’s edge in the Electoral College remains the same or has even grown a bit since 2016 in places like Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and even Minnesota, which he lost by a hair.

You know its bad for the Democrats when the NY Times is forced to acknowledge that. I bet that sample for that poll was skewed in the Democrats favor which makes the outlook for Trump even better.

Jim Eagle

MM,

Honestly never considered that. Yes a lot of Trump supporters have to be in your class.

Jim Eagle

MM-

Add in the rest of MFM “pillowness” or outright fabrications, people have abandoned “traditional” and are searching for their own news sources. The ratings Bear this out in spades. Audiences continue to shrink into the single millions, and for a country of 350 Million?

I expect failure theater to begin in earnest when the campaign ad revenue fails to appear on time.

MissMarple2

Melinda,

A wise assumption. I do not watch television very often, even though daughter pays for Netflix. My entertainment is watching the Trump Presidency.

I suspect I am not the only one. You would be surprised how much my furnace repair guy new about trade talks, the sham impeachment and Adam Shifft, how the schools don't help kids get into trades (he and his wife home schooled because they were afraid of ALL of the schools, both public and private). and other things we discuss here every day.

He was a Trump supporter and would vote for him again. He and his wife missed getting into the Trump rally that my sister and I attended.

I think you are right about TV ad revenue, too. Bloomberg is going to be surprised at how little the needle moves with that huge ad buy he made.

Isn't this fascinating? Watching the "experts" shoot themselves in the foot over and over is pretty enjoyable for me. I still think there will be a new communication/entertainment venue emerge, maybe a combination of direct communication lie Twitter coupled with an on-demand entertainment venue like Netflix. I wouldn't be surprised to see one of the Trump kids start it, and it would have a huge number of guaranteed subscribers.

I wouldn't be surprised if Eric Trump was working on it now.

From a commenter at Ace, on the thread about Bill Kristol's more than usual stupidity (saying that a Warren presidency would be less a threat to the republic than a second term of President Trump:

"They still think it's all going to go back to 'normal' after Trump. All is forgiven. We all go back to 'grilling hotdogs' and abandon this 'fighting the culture war' foolishness. These people don't live in bubbles. They live in iron diving bells."

I really liked the substitution of iron diving bells for bubbles. True.
