AF1 on final approach.

There is NOTHING as exciting as seeing AF1 come in. I saw it at Tegel in 1968 I lived in W. Berlin and Nixon came in. I didn't even like Nixon because I was a democrat and a Kennedy supporter. But it was so exciting and everyone was happy to see President Nixon!

Dave (in MA)

Fun with green screen:

Porchlight

What were the hijinks and hilarity? Do I really want to know the answer?

Porchlight

I like seeing AF1 come in but I'm not gonna lie, I loved seeing Trump Force One land in 2016. There's just something about that plane.

“ What the hell is a "green screen"?”

The technology that lets your favorite TV weatherperson walk around in front of the changing map.

Porch, where is that guy’s concealed carry license? Firing a weapon in the air... the bullet does come back down. Very dangerous. Firing in the midst of a riot? That is illegal everywhere, that dude wasn’t under assault. He was chasing a kid along with other rioters.

Another Bob

So I’m late, shoot me... ;)

Porchlight

Totally dangerous, henry. Was anyone else even arrested? Or only Kyle, after the fact?

I'm just pointing out that even if he did fire into the air and NYT is retarded and thinks that's totally okay, Kyle wouldn't have known that he wasn't being fired upon.

That's a fight I'd like to watch up close:

henry

Porch, agree. They haven’t mentioned arresting that guy or lefty, the felon with a concealed firearm that brandished it at the kid.

Tonight the Kenosha Police Scanner is shut down. Huge crowds in Kenosha. Lots of Feds and NG in there too.

Porchlight

Trump is on!

henry, hope all the law enforcement stays safe tonight. Rioters, IDGAS.

Porchlight

Trump talking about the thugs (a quote) after the RNC and DC mayor/Dems not caring about the violence.

Jim Eagle

This is only round 1, despite the NG and Fed reinforcements.

Soros never gives up easily.

MissMarple2

President says the 4 policeman who rescued Rand should be given a medal of some kind. He's going to see about that - told Rand than today.

henry

Saw a couple Antefa at the local Walgreens. They must be casing local towns for gas stations etc outside the Kenosha interdiction zone. I hope they aren’t planning to sack rural towns. Even townies are heavily armed out here.

MissMarple2

I love hearing the Campaign Trail Trump.

Says that they didn't care about law and order until they went down like a rock in water in the polls.

Porchlight

Trump is lit, and so is the crowd.

Barbara

Great crowd in New Hampshire. It really energizes the President as well as the people.

MissMarple2

"Last night he was speaking to the World. Tonight he is speaking to US!"

I hope they aren’t planning to sack rural towns. Even townies are heavily armed out here.


I hope they do, and I hope the locals shoot to kill.
This needs to stop, and if your governor isn't going to shut it down, I'm fine with your neighbors doing so.

anonamom

Glad that rally happened.
He needed it. He deserved it!

I LOVE that they are closing with the YMCA song! Gay hater, my eye!

anonamom

Best thing about Joe Biden and Kamala being his opponents--he doesn't need to exaggerate a thing, or do any name calling--just can factually address their records.
Or in Joe's case, pretty much LACK of one!

Porchlight

His dragon energy gets all blocked up with these teleprompter speeches and has to spill out in rally fire

MissMarple2

I love it, too, anonamom!

That rally shows how he figured out how to work around the stupid rules. I have never forgotten the rally my sister and I went to here.

If ANY of you get a chance to hear him in perso, GO! It's fabulous!

From the Trump political lexicon: nutjobs.

"We're not going to let our country be destroyed by a bunch of nutjobs," he tells NH rally.

He speech tonight ran 1 hr 13 mins, just slightly longer than his Acceptance speech last night.
========================================
Dear Mark: I LIKE him calling them nutjobs!

I do believe Trump spells it as two words: NUT JOB. As in COMEY.

Well, I just gone and done it.

I sang to MrsJ the opening and most important parts of the vocals of Beethoven's 9th Symphony (Fourth movement). In German. I like Schiller a lot!

Alright, smarty pants Dave. Which Mozart piece was that?

lyle

Hint: it involves my last name. Oops, no one knows that!

DrJ

Lyle, for you then it didn't happen!

The Mozart Alla Turca (the one posted where the player usedd a bcyle pump) is one piano Sonata that most pianists have played. It is not that difficult technically, but like most Mozart Sonatas it is hard to play *right*.

Narciso

Is that from the seraglio play.

henry

So your last name is Mozart? Noted. :)

Dave (in MA)

Lyle, Beats me.

Narciso

'Taking care of business' is that oblique enough.

DrJ

More accurately, Mr. Bicycle pump played the fourth movement of Mozart's 11th piano sonata.

DrJ, Schiller was our mascot in college:

I'm pretty sure he lived in the dorm rooms right below mine for awhile during sophomore year. But those guys kept the secret well.

Porchlight

Yes, DrJ, these organic traditions are special. I am currently feeling less close to my alma mater than I ever have, due to politics, but I hope that feeling doesn't last. I certainly loved it there and have loved going back.

Narciso

Its kind of surprising since previous call of duty games have featured similar scenarios.

DrJ

Porch,

The closest thing we had at Michigan, I suppose, was hash bash. Somehow that's not the same.

DrJ

Let's try that again: there is the "painting the rock" tradition at Michigan:

Hi, Porch! I've read all the Miss Silvers too--sad that they run out at some point--perhaps time to start again. Not first-rate, but very pleasant second-rate! Did you get my Lucky Jim lecture?

And hi RG! Beasts! CH! hrt! Old home week, evidently.

I know Lyle’s last name but I’m not telling.
See you in two days!

Some of you (ahem, Porch) are close. DrJ has an unfair advantage...

👊👊 Caro!!

DrJ

lyle, I'll never tell! What is revealed as private, stays as private.

MissMarple2

Narciso,

I suggest you read the last 2 paragraphs of Sullivan's article again.

1. He suggests that if Trump loses, Trump will refuse to concede.
2. If somehow he can be FORCED to leave if he loses (thereby setting up the legitimacy of a forceful overthrow), then
3. He will set up an opposition group outside the government, attempting to de-legitimize Biden, much like the WEIMAR REPUBLIC, so therefore,
4. Biden is the only reasonable choice.

There is perhaps a flash of insight at the beginning of Sullivan's article, but in my opinion, he goes completely off the rails at the end.

Narciso

Thats why i put it out there, they wont admit there is a problem at his old haunts

If the incompetent Mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, doesn’t get control of his city and stop the Anarchists, Agitators, Rioters and Looters, causing great danger to innocent people, we will go in and take care of matters the way they should have been taken care of 100 days ago!

I assume this is in response to the absolutely stupid letter Mayor Wheeler sent to the President this afternoon.

MrsJ relates a story about a putative protest at Arizona State. The group, whatever it was, was slated to protest in a glade in front of an administration building.

The night before that entire glade was fertilized. With manure.

That ended the protest before it even started.

MM @ 9:45

Sullivan went off the rails about 17 years ago.

If he says anything coherent or sensible now, it’s just proof of the broken clocks theory.

Or maybe the infinite monkeys typing out the works of Shakespeare.

clarice

Yes, Sullivan is not worth reading and hasn't been for years.

MissMarple2

James D.,

I agree. I had hoped when I read Narciso's link, that it was a sign Sullivan had gotten back on the rails. Alas, it was not to be so.

In addition, the American political press grow more and more insane. Did you know they are worried about that Lego White House Ivanka talked about last night? Not anything Hunter Biden stole, of course.

I still remember PLs John Hinderaker a few months ago, downhearted, saying it was sad but there was really no way MN could go red this year. He seems a bit more upbeat now.

FWIW, our county now is off the CA COVID-19 "list," and a coalition of those in the county have petitioned the state to allow *everything* to reopen. If the state does not approve, we probably will do it anyway.

Gov. Charlie Baker activated 1,000 members of the state's National Guard in an order signed Friday.


There was no reason given for the move. The activation is in effect immediately.

Baker's order said the National Guard is being put on "active duty to provide necessary assistance to State and local civilian authorities and/or special duty and emergency assistance for the preservation of life and property, preservation of order, and to afford protection to persons”
