So, anyone see this???

WTF?

Bernie stepped in it big time with his Castro remarks. It will hurt him in most primaries. The question is how much it will hurt him. I had him figured to beat Biden in SC until the Castro stuff came out.

I posted an email that covered that very subject a couple of days ago.

WHO either needs the pandemic or needs to sell a billion dollars in bonds. I’m sure the $425 million is long gone.

About that cop shooting in Chicago, the station it took place in is one of the two that are used for most of the “on Tourist” crimes are sourced. Since the new drug permissive laws have been passed here, plus a slew of anti-police shootings under Rahm police are more than a little reluctant to approach the obviously cranked on PCP CTA riders and get caught with another Laquan Macdonald Event, manufactured into an “event” by the local “woke” media types that iBama trained under.

Some may recall a video of a white man getting a beat down by two AA youth which only ended when said white male drew his concealed carry, held fire, and the two “yutes” ran off. That occurred at the McD’s at the top of the stairs of the CTA stop just one station north of the above shooting. These two stations are the source and escape routes for 95% of the Michigan Ave “Snatch & Grab” crimes, especially the school holiday timed “youth swarm” shop storming, where 30-40 kids will storm a store and clear the racks. Under Rahm, arrests were discouraged. Not long after, the conceal carry video was filmed.

Mayor Lightfoot may have a different approach coming, but Juicy Smollett (thank you Dave Chappelle for that name) was the perfect opportunity to tie her hands by her losing opponent. This fight is ongoing and that dirt will see the light of day, eventually, probably after the April elections, here.

New York may have bad bail issues making things worse, now, but they were tested here for years, as unwritten policy, first.

Re the Althouse link CH mentioned:

I cannot imagine sitting through one of her classes. I’d want to kill myself just so I wouldn’t have to hear her anymore, if this is a representative sample of her “logic”

I'm writing from a position of cruel neutrality. I like observing how this salad is made, and I understand liking it and resenting people who don't get it, but I also understand the people who are horrified.

Buckeye,

There are TWO tranches that need to get paid on 7/15 if an event is declared.

Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

Extraneus,

I read yesterday that a higher per cent of blacks were fans of The Apprentice than whites.

Apparently the entrepreneurial bent of the show appealed to them.

What a great video! I think it should be shown at the convention, too. No chance of that, however, with the pearl-clutchers hanging around.

Mom to 2--In response to your question the keto bread (recipe posted yesterday evening) is the best yet. I toasted it and you might, too, to minimize the "wet" feel from the psyllium powder. It doesn't taste eggy. Because there are no preservatives in it, I recommend you slice it, wrap it and refrigerate or freeze it and then just take out a slice a day.

Yeah, I saw it in the NYT this morning. Unbelievable

“All he has left is his art”

Oh, and 3 kids from his divorce (after his wife presumably dumbed him for being a crack addiction and sleeping with his sister in law), and his illegitimate kid in Arkansas. And of course the millions in foreign graft money that is doubtless squirreled away in foreign bank accounts far from the eyes of the IRS.

MissMarple2

Melinda,

I see art is apparently how they are going to funnel money to Hunter. No way in jell anyone would believe he wrote a book, plus he would be compelled to get too many stories to work together.

But a crappy painting that he could stamp a $50,000 price tag on? Easy-peasy! It doesn't even have to show skill, given how weird the art world has become. And of course, the New York Times is right there to help facilitate the fraud.

D,

Agree with you, and the news people have made a big deal of the Clyburn endorsement, because he has a state-wide organization, and supposedly that will account for Biden's win over Sanders.

I wonder how Clyburn will be paid off.

Old Lurker

MR "I have had just about enough of liars Pelosi and Schumer."

Get used to it until the Prog Movement is dead and buried. Getting Winston to accept blatant untruths as truth is a prime objective of 1984. The dumber people are, and the more emotionally WOKE they are, the easier that is for the left to accomplish.

Captain Hate

OL,

I 100% agree with you that the best thing in November would be a choice between DJT and Bernie. Capitalism versus communism; let's get it on. If you're looking for the biggest reason the Overton window keeps moving to the left, look no further than GOP Top Men trying to blur the differences between choices seeking that illusionary "middle". The last time there was a real ideological choice (Trump was still an unknown ideologically in 2016) Reagan won in a landslide yet Top Men learned nothing from that.

Gentlejim

JiB,
My two youngest had teachers that used Kahoot in HS. They both enjoyed it.

Extraneus

"I have had just about enough of liars Pelosi and Schumer."

They're pretty shameless. From the Russia email joke, to the very-fine-people hoax and now the virus hoax hoax, their leaders and troops are more than willing to repeat clear, provable lies without even a hint of embarrassment.

Old Lurker

Cap'n, you have been dead right since the get-go that GOPe Top Men are the problem. Looking back to 1980 at least, they have been perfectly trained Judas Goats, and they have led GOP leaning sheep right to the door of the slaughter house.

MissMarple2

Extraneus,

I suppose that magazine cover is supposed to make us old ladies and Franklin Graham and all get all upset.

Pfft.

Old Lurker

Far as I am concerned, there is nothing good about "the middle" anymore. Wake up. Study the two choices (Communism v Capitalism constrained by a functioning Constitution). Make a choice. If you can't decide, sit down and shut up.

Old Lurker

What GOPe Top Men learned from the Reagan landslide was that they needed to improve the camouflage lest they be fired from their jobs as Judas Goats. Worked well for them until Trump called them out.

Captain Hate

Exactly, OL. I kept sitting and wondering "why do they keep avoiding what gave them landslides?" The answer was clear all along and I just refused to acknowledge it.

Swap those last two numbers and I think you'd be a lot closer to the truth, OL.
TeddyR may be on Mount Rushmore but perhaps that's because he was the original GOPey prog dope who first set the Republicans on the course of prog-lite.

@RoscoeBDavis1

So the Biden Camp donated $50k to Jim Clyburn's church Morris Brown AME Church in Charleston. So now we know what it took to get Clyburn off the couch for Biden. The delay in the planned endorsement was they were waiting for the check to clear. Not surprising at all

Students Demand Their School Treat Coronavirus-Themed Party as a ‘Hate Crime’

A group of students at the University of Albany are demanding that a coronavirus-themed party — featuring buckets of Corona beers and partygoers in surgical masks — be treated as a “hate crime.”

The controversy started when the Twitter account @BarstoolAlbany (which, by the way, is not officially affiliated with Barstool Sports) posted a now-deleted video of the off-campus party with the caption: “Corona virus isn’t gonna stop anyone from partying.”

WGY News Radio, a local station, also reported that a quick, “if you blink, you miss it” shot in the video seems to show “a white sheet with the word virus and two faces.”

The outlet’s report states:

One has the letter X over each eye and looks like a sick face. The other is a frown, with what looks like straight lines for eyes. Is it supposed to be an Asian person with the virus? It certainly looks like it could be.

In response, the school’s Asian American Alliance issued a statement on Instagram, demanding that the university “investigate this illegal student group and related UAlbany students, requiring them to delete this video and to apologize on their Instagram homepage.”

anonymom was asking about Notre Dame and their Rome programs -- they pulled the plug yesterday:

The CDC and the U.S. State Department travel warning levels for Italy have been raised to level 3 -- avoid unnecessary travel. In the interest of your safety, Notre Dame has made the difficult but necessary decision to suspend its Rome programs effective immediately and begin returning students to the United States as soon as possible. The University will book your flights for as early as Sunday to the major U.S. airport closest to your home. It is of the utmost importance that you return to the Gateway at Via Ostilia for and 8 a.m. meeting Saturday (February 29th) to prepare for departurs. Please respond to let us know if you can attend the meeting or not. Information on travel accomodations and re-entry procedures will be provided in a subsequent message. Please share this message with your parents and/or emergency contacts.

Iggy, yes, being nice to CH is creepy, right?

As to 1980 v 1908, couldn't agree more...and 1908 probably began in 1860 or so too.

Wilson, TR and FDR sowed the seeds of the whirlwind.

The significance of 1980, starting the book in the middle, is that the WWII-Depression generation was alive and kicking and even the Democrats had to be careful about trashing the country and the Constitution. Now Vietnam and us 60's brats were already nibbling away at the foundation and Ayers in Education, and Law Schools were minting SJW Living Document clowns fast as they could, but for awhile the old guys keep the "rules" in place somewhat.

With Bush #1, the Judas Goats started building the ramps up to the slaughter house entry and they hid their Uniparty from a whole bunch of us including me for several decades. They have had free run of the field ever since Reagan and came THIS CLOSE to sealing the deal before Trump came along.
