Scientists now say that the coronavirus may be able to spread throughout buildings, via toilets and drain pipes — an especially alarming prospect for apartment dwellers with suspect plumbing.

Kyle Rittenhouse's fundraiser at GoFundMe deleted and now promotes funds for victim.

The nEGROS are running the asylum.

Maybe they could have a burn baby burn night and play a couple charity games for LEFTY and JACOB BLAKE in KENOSHA.

And maybe a tree could fall in the woods.

On a different subject entirely...

In “honor” of this. https://www.nps.gov/articles/000/suffrage-forward-into-light.htm

The National Parks Service decided to light the Wall of Names at the Flight 93 memorial purple and yellow.

Does this bother anyone else as much as it bothers me? This is what amounts to a cemetery. Not an appropriate venue for politically correct virtue signaling IMO.

Would they do this at Arlington?

In touch with some great people in effort to get Kyle Rittenhouse competent defense counsel. @michellemalkin
is an American hero.

The line in the sand has been crossed. If Kyle cannot defend himself under the circumstances shown in videos, we are all at risk.

Think about it.

I recall reading something like this months ago. The speculation was that an improperly vented sewage line made the CHINESE virus spread throughout an entire HK apartment building. https://www.wlfi.com/content/news/567760192.html

The flight 93 memorial is a victory of the common man over islamist extremism, its really obscene it would be coopted like this

Porchlight

I call BS. There would be visible evidence of this if it were true. For example a test would sizable buildings with shared plumbing but no elevators and no shared entrances, like some old school apartment buildings and motels. You'd see the whole building get sick even when no one is coming anywhere near each other.

As it is, even sharing elevators isn't enough to make entire high rises get sick.

Regarding the debates, imagine this scenario. Camp Biden makes all kinds of unreasonable demands as to logistics, moderators, etc. Based ostensibly on rona fears. Trump refuses to accede. Biden then pulls out of the debates and claims it is Trump's fault.

That Flight 93 memorial was allowed to be built in a crescent shape--the Bush administration let objections to that be marginalized. I think the original plan was to have 44 bells in the tower, symbolizing the number of people on board, including the four hijackers. I hope to God that didn't go through. The party of Bush McCain and Romney is dead? Piss on the bodies.

Narciso,

I hate Vogue. They have ignored an actual fashion model First Lady because she's not a commie, they pushed the horrendous rags that Michelle wore just because she was a democrat and black, and I hope when all of the arrests are made there are quite a few from their editorial board.

Texas county undergoes audit, finds that active rona cases were being massively overreported.

Reported number on 8/25: 4338
Revised number on 8/26: 81

You read that right.

But I'm sure that problem is just happening in one county, right?

While we all have to wear masks, Trump has ripped off more pretend masks than any US prez.

Porchlight

Sorry, that was 4638 active cases on 8/25, typo.

So the county was just adding to its active total and never checking up on recovered cases so they could be removed.

And people think this exact same thing isn't happening all over the world? It's absurd.

peter

Trump should say, if Biden's too feeble to debate, I'll debate Kamala (who's supposed to be so great at cross-examination, but really isn't.)

GUS

Narciso, that article from the CUT or is it the CUNT is ridiculous. And the cost of Melania's garb is nothing compared to what nEGRO LIES MUTTER looted in CHICAGO this past week.

--...police sometimes reacts as if they are scared and lack imagination...--

It is a puzzler, I'll grant you.
A cop is dealing with a felon with a violent record and when he defies and resists and then reaches in his car where a gun would be stored, bizarrely the copper becomes frightened the violent criminal is going to shoot him as happens not infrequently every year. It just doesn't add up, I tells ya.

And when you have a violent felon who has apparently walked through a taser refuses to stop and may or may not have already been in possession of a knife and he does one of the two or three most dangerous things a con can do, reaches into his car, what self respecting cop doesn't ask the hopped up thug for a timesy outy, put on his propeller beanie and take a magical trip to Barney the Dinosaur's Imagination Station?
Cop has exhausted his non lethal means of gaining compliance. He stays close to the thug in an effort to prevent him obtaining a weapon. Thug goes to his car anyway and reaches into it. What is left to imagine?
I may say you're a dreamer. And you're not the only one. I hope someday you will take a ride along; so you'll know the world is full of thugs with guns.

Ig, what would be the only logical conclusion to think in this situation. He's reaching in the car for a pack of smokes??

jimmyk

Trump refuses to accede. Biden then pulls out of the debates and claims it is Trump's fault.

He might try that, but I doubt it will fly. And if it looks like Trump is gaining momentum in September (as it looks now), Biden will probably want to debate as a 'hail Mary.'

Lyle "...Too bad, comrade."

Unless the final circuit breaker in the Constitution produces a Jury of Peers which nullifies the charge.

Rinse and repeat.

Oh dear A-Bob and Ig. The 3 of us should expect a "stern talking to". I suppose it will come from others who actually met MAGUIRE. I'm not judging anyone here based on whom they have met.
I base my comments on the words or actions of the person I am disagreeing with.
I've been proven correct over the last 3+ years.

These nonsensical notions of how POLICE FUNCTION didn't arrive at our HOSTS door wrapped up like a Christmas present this morning.

Ahem. What are you doing off The Ledge, OL? 🤨

Agree jimmyk. It won't fly.

It's because the officers have imagination that they react the way they do.

Iggy, I agree that ride alongs change minds.

I wish my daughter could go on one about now.

Biden needs to be put on notice....after his NAP, that, he can make all the excuses he likes, or his "handlers" like. We've NEVER expected him to man up. He's been HIDING for months. Literally hiding in his basement.
I suspect the MASTER will troll this demented old fool quite a bit in the coming days.

Pres Trump says he was prepared to postpone his convention speech tonight until Monday because of Hurricane Laura, but says storm did not inflict as much damage as feared. Says he'll probably visit the storm zone this weekend with stops in LA. and TX.

Porchlight

Good, MM. Onward to the acceptance speech! Which will be live, unlike Sleepy Joe's.

We're watching the RNC tonight with our conservo (but rona timid) neighbors. Over time they've become comfortable with socializing in person. They are excellent hosts so it is a pleasure.

The only drawback for me is that I like to be online following along with reactions (here if possible and on TheDonald.win). Also I like to be chainsmoking. :)

But maybe I can at least bring my laptop to check in here and there.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

The former president of the United Auto Workers was charged with conspiracy to embezzle union funds on Thursday, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Michigan announced.

If found guilty, ex-UAW President Dennis Williams could face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

UAW LAKEFRONT HOME SEARCHED IN CORRUPTION PROBE GOING FOR $1.3M

Williams, 67, is the 15th person charged in connection with corruption in the UAW related to the ongoing investigation by the Department of Justice. His successor as UAW president, Gary Jones, pleaded guilty in June to a more-than $1 million scheme that stole money from union members.

Jane

So no one saw Kamilla's speech. I suspect it was on every network, and it was truly one big pack of lies.

jimmyk

The retina guys (and gal!) I work with are the same. Truly dedicated, caring opthamologists.

Mrs K and I were in Nice, France, a couple of years ago, and she had a sudden 'floaters' problem and knew she should see a retinal specialist. It was a Sunday, and she found the name of a prominent local retinal specialist and e-mailed him. Within an hour or two he e-mailed her back, saying he was away, but go to a nearby hospital where one of his residents would be waiting for her. She checked out fine. A couple of days later the first doc e-mailed her to ask how she was doing. Pretty amazing.

jimmyk

Hey, CH! Must have been because I mentioned your name earlier today.

Captain Hate

Hey all. My Santa Cruz daughter had to evacuate so they drove to my son in law's sister's place outside Seattle. Not everyone *had* to evacuate, I guess, because their neighbor stayed put and said nothing was torched. So I think they're returning this weekend. Well run state imo.

Jane

What the hell did she think she was rebutting?

Barbara

It's because the officers have imagination that they react the way they do.

Porch,

I'd say it's because the officers have training and experience. If they were untrained and had no experience, then perhaps our host's reaction to the incident might apply. It would also
be a very irresponsible and costly way to run a jurisdiction.

In actuality, police departments and jurisdictions put a great deal of time, effort and money in training officers in the academy, during probation and on the job not only to avoid the "errors" that are being alleged, but also to get them through such very dangerous situations alive.

lyle

If this Michael Walsh quote is not truer than ever, I don’t know what is:

Democrats are a criminal enterprise masquerading as a political party.

Always have been and are even more so now.

Jane

It's pretty clear, covid is going to be the entire democrat platform.

A friend sent me this today. I have no idea if it will come about, but it's all about covid being rigged, and Fauci being in on it.

FTR, I too have a sibling who is LEO.

I don't want anybody who hasn't spent a month in the winter on ride alongs on the 3-11 shift, in a town with 20% unemployment, telling me how police "should" act. Going to doors where there's been a domestic reported, waiting to see who's going to be greeting your knock, and with what weapon. And how liquored or drugged up they'll be.

You do that, then you can share your opinion on how the cop "should" be acting.

So the people I value when commenting on any cop/ deceased video is rocco and gentlejim--and I will note, I think even they may have gotten the George Floyd thing wrong, it appears.

For the rest of us--TK's 72 hour rule is a good place to start.

(Though assuming whatever the MSM reports is wrong works most of the time.)

Jane

I'm at the point where I will believe absolutely anything about the democrats.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate!

Daggone it, I was prepping the early stages of supper! I will be here from now until the curtain falls on RNC2020, and I sure hope you come back to see what President Trump pulls to make the democrats go even more insane than they already have.

Porchlight,

How are the kids over on The Donald enjoying this? I ave to tell you, I am thrilled with how this has been handled, and I will bet it has been cheaper than the old way they used to do conventions. A LOT more interesting people, too! Plus no Mitt Romney! Yay!

lyle

Police do undergo a lot of training but it’s an open secret that they don’t regularly hit the gun range nearly as much as private citizens.

Momto2

Have you ever heard the term "OG?" It's become a big deal in one of my plant groups. The administrator re-named the group "The OG-----Plant Group."

She said she just thought OG referred to "Original" because another group had surfaced with a similar name. She was informed by the PC brigade that it meant "Original Gangsters" and it was inappropriate for her, as a white person, to use that term as it was only allowed to be used by POC.

So here is my question...Why would a POC WANT to appropriate the term "gangster" and forbid its use by white people?

This all blew up overnight and it appears it will result in the entire group (which is 9 years old) dissolving. They found something in her SM from 5 years ago that "proves" she is a racist!

Captain Hate

Nobody commented on Iggy's use of the sappy Imagine lyrics on TM? Do I even know you guys?

hrtshpdbox

... police departments and jurisdictions put a great deal of time, effort and money in training officers..

Yet still they turn out clowns like Derek Chauvin, or officers who don't cuff drunks who fall asleep in the drive-thru line, and their negligence gives the left all the ammunition they need. Better training, and better screening. It's called for.
