Jack is Back!

TM, there is real, dangerous, false political world outside your CT bubble. Go to NYC, DC, Kenosha, Portland or wherever and live it before speculating and ponticiating. It is real. Even the approving Lefttist mayor of Portland had to change addresses.

Reminds me of the reducation program in the CCP.

It is beyond cavil that billionaire money is behind the effort to turn DAs into part of the woke brigade. Even Establishment Media recognizes this.

https://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-prosecutor-campaign-20180523-story.html

I haven't dug deeply enough into funding of BLM and Antifa to know whether billionaire money is behind them. However, given the effort with respect to DAs, it would hardly be surprising.

JiB, I think it goes beyond the CT bubble. In my opinion, persuadables in Wisconsin, Minnesota, NH, Pennsylvania and Michigan also have a certain dismissive attitude toward Trump stemming from a rank cultural bias (Trump simply is too nasty to make many people comfortable voting for him). That's why, although I try to be polite here, I think that the notion that Trump is going to win a convincing victory is simple wishful thinking. This election will resemble Franken/Coleman. Dems won't give up.

Where are they getting this stuff?

We already know there are groups paying their bail so they can be back out on the streets without delay. Comma-La fund-raised for them on Twitter.

They have sizable GoFundMe-type accounts for bullet-proof vests, Kevlar helmets and other battle gear.

How much of a stretch is it to believe that they're being funded in other ways, and yes, flown in to the front lines?

(Hey, y'all.)

Thomas Collins

The 2020 POTUS election is going to surpass the Jackson/Quincy Adams 1824 affair and the Hayes/Tilden 1876 festivities in bare knuckle politics.

Jack is Back!

TC,

Disagree. My tally for the EC vote is Trump 400+.

The riots are our friends.

I listened to Biden's comments in his faux press conference, and had to wonder what alternate universe he's living in.

Love Peter Ducey. Respectful and right to the heart of the matter.

Jack is Back!

All these polls forget is the Trump parade.

Where are the Biden boat parades, the Biden road parades, the Biden flags?

We are a screwed country if the majoriity of people favor a guy with visible dementia.

MissMarple2

Oh, FGS!

Yes, when I was a kid in grade school in the 1950's (when J. Edgar Hoover was still looking for Commies and running the FBI) and when the TV networks still pretended to be American and patriotic, I was taught that we were the best country in the world, because of freedom and the Constitution.

Remember Edgar R. Murrow on CBS and his program The 20th Century? Remember rooting for the American team in the Olympics? Remember when Castro took over Cuba and RUSSIA brought in ships to dock and establish a Russian base?

Trump is 2 years older than I am, and I am certain he remembers that as well. I swear to God he is not interested in being just like Putin. Who did that guy work for before Trump....Bush? Pfft.

They need to get over it or explain why they are so panicked that a regular guy is running the country! My answer is loss of bribe money or fear of outright criminality being discovered.

lyle

President Donny-from-Queens

Really, TM™? Unbelievable. But in fairness, you allowed me to call the previous guy “preznit jiveass” on your blog, so there’s that.

Old Lurker

EXT!

about damn time you showed up!

lyle

Where ya been, Ext?

I suppose our gracious host has no problem with this, though:

“Bitch set me up.”

Barbara

President Donny-from-Queens

lyle,

It reminds me of other leaders in our history who didn't fit the profile of an acceptable leader, yet did great things. They too received unfair criticism, but I'd rather have a leader who stands in their ranks than all the poised and polished Mitt Romney's and John Kennedy's in the world. I say this as someone who supported both of those men.

Jane

OL,

We are in a civil war. The problem is, our side isn't fighting. Yet

MissMarple2

You know what?

I would be happy if my dad could have been President Bobby-from-Edgewood, or my son could be President Chris-from-Brownsburg.

What is all of this snooty stuff? I am not interested in that, and this country isn't supposed to have a permanent aristocracy, which is what this sounds like.

I think I will go pour myself a glass of cheap red wine from the local liquor store I am helping out, where tonight all of the customers were either college kids (all dutifully wearing masks) or roofers, drywall hangars, or landscape guys who were NOT wearing masks but were dutifully standing on their six-foot interval spots.

lyle

Now the salon owner is—wait for it—getting death threats. It’s all cool, though. Right, TM™? I mean, it’s not like Donny From Queens vulgarities, huh?

Extraneus

Been moving, peeps. New chapter. I had a dock, but I now have a roofed boat lift next to a much-bigger dock, which is actually a pier, and deeper water. Bought a magnificent house as well, not to brag. :-D

Narciso

Over the solon from scranton, no contest and you knoe my long standing objections until 2015.

lyle

The problem is, our side isn't fighting. Yet

Oh, we have SOMEONE fighting, Jane. Too bad he’s the trashy Donnie-from-Queens.

lyle

Good for you, Ext.

Dave (in MA)

There's been talk about going after the salon owner because CA is a "two-party consent" state where you have to have consent of both parties or otherwise it's not legal to record them.
But...

It's OK if the non-consenting party is doing something illegal.

And...

We don't know if the salon owner was involved.

lyle

Of course, several hacks from the MFM are trying to defend MaligNancy. Dear You Know The Thing, I despise the MFM.

lyle

It was footage from a security camera. One of the bazillion all over this country and the world. There’s no “consent” needed. But prepare for the city DA to bing charges against the poor gal.

Jane

Good for you Ex! Enjoy every minute!

Jane

Lyle,

At some point he's gonna need some help.

James D.

I hope the GOP is cutting add right now with the security cam footage of Pelosi, and the other prominent Dems who imposed strict lockdown rules and then personally flouted them because they just needed a haircut or vacation or whatever.

I’d make the biggest ad buy in history with it.

Captain Hate

Where are they getting this stuff?

Have you been attacked and suffered a punctured lung?

Captain Hate

Yo Ext!

lyle

Very much agree, Jane. Unfortunately, there are too many invertebrates in the R ranks in Congress. Who you got in the Senate besides Cotton, Hawley and maybe Johnson? The House? Who knows?

GUS

People in WISCONSIN LOVE Trump. They share his values, not ANTIFA'S nor bLACK lives matter.
Your standard issue TEACHER JILL types. (yes TEACHER JILL) love them some gubmint money.

Ext,

You moved to NC, right? Isn't it great to be out of the city?

lyle

My brother just got home from visiting his son and DIL who live outside Madison, GUS. He said outside of that shithole, the Trumps signs were ubiquitous. It’s a shame that all those deplorables are so taken in by the cult of President Donny-from-Queens, don’t you think?

Captain Hate

Jane

Dave,

I saw the salon owner on Tucker (I think). She has several people who work there, for themselves. They simply rent the seats. He called her and said he was going in, I think she was told it was for Pelosi. She wasn't thrilled, but thought she had to let him go. (She didn't fight back).

BeastsEngland

’Bought a magnificent house as well, not to brag.’

No problem on the house, but if you have a nicer boat than mine then I really don’t wanna hear about it... 😜

Good to see your moniker, sir!!

This only underscores what will happen when the despised deplorables start fighting back which will act as an aphrodisiac for the commie news.

MissMarple2

Call from friend driving through lyle's state, although not near him (I think).

Everyone enthusiastic about Trump, lots of Trump flags and signs everywhere, very few Biden signs.

Too bad lyle's state doesn't have 25 electoral votes!

Rocco

Great to see you back Ext and congrats!

I haven't seen a male Ruby Throated Hummingbird in about a week, just a lot of females coming in to feed. I've read the mles leave a couple of weeks before the females so enjoy the last few weeks of Hummingbird season. In these parts anyway.

And why isn't Trump yelling from the rooftops that Biden/Harris bailed out the antifa rioters?

Agreed but only if it could happen with no more people moving in than there are now.

lyle

Somewhere in the house I have an old political button from 1964 which reads, "In Your Heart You Know He's Nuts" — a play on Barry Goldwater's campaign theme ("In Your Heart You Know He's Right"). The tendency on the left to diminish its opponents as unintelligent, foolish and dangerous has only grown more acerbic and vitriolic over the years.

Ronald Reagan was incompetent and dangerous. He would lead us into World War Three. The Bush–Hitler memes still resonate. And President Trump is still viewed as a grifter from Queens in certain circles. Yet how can the left minimize or ignore his accomplishments? I need not list them here. They a many and significant. Would they rather that we be beholden to China and see our economy sink further into the abyss? Would they rather that we continue our decades long wars in far off lands to no avail? Are they willing to give up their security in a world grown terribly small seemingly overnight?

William Buckley, Jr. once said that he was told if he voted for Barry Goldwater, we would be at war in Vietnam. He added, they were right. They said terrible things against Senator Goldwater and later learned to regret them. Let's hope that the opposition in our country comes about and realizes the tremendous gift we've been given before it's too late and we squander everything we are on the altar of political correctness.

"When I was flying twice a week covering domestic and international unrest I would see several far leftists boarding planes wearing typical antifa gear

This is normal and the media is lying"

Narciso

So if the police and the national guard wont defend the lives and property somebody will, this has certain dark aspects like weve seen in beirut sarajevo baghdad.

lyle

This is normal and the media is lying"

Which means the media is in on it and they’re hiding the huge funding behind these jackals.

The Infamous Ignatz

--“I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to...many times…It was a set up, and I take responsibility for falling for a setup.”--

O.M.G. what a P.O.S.
That not a single prog will defend the salon owner or call that bitch on wheels Pelosi out over this shows you they are beyond the pale.
What was the word she trusted, 'yes you can come in here and break the law with impunity that you try to shove down everyone elses throats and it'll be our little secret?
When I hear imperial shit like that from these bourbon soaked Bourbons I kinda hope there is no political resolution of their project to end America as we know it. Wiping the slate clean, and not like with a cloth, has a lot of positives to it.

TM, 110 of 175 arrestees in Kenosha were from out of the city. They did not ride bicycles. Did they fly in? Maybe. Did the bring shields and weapons on the plane?

https://babylonbee.com/news/politicians-officially-exempted-from-lockdown-rules-since-lizard-people-cant-catch-covid

The Infamous Ignatz

I think one of the major problems for the good natured, reasonable middle like TM is, admitting the truth about what the Left is and what it's doing [and by Left, I now of necessity include the entire Dem party] entails some very distasteful conclusions and ramifications.
And a loud, politesse-challenged guy like Trump is in many ways the perfect excuse to avoid those distasteful things. It's as if the kid who declared the Emperor has no clothes had first spent all summer putting flaming bags o' dog poo on the reasonable middle's porch and throwing M80s over their back fence before he spoke the truth about the Boss.

And so in a world where hundreds of millions are given to an overtly Marxist group like BLM and we see antifa thugs forming caravans and using sophisticated methods of coordination it's a lot easier to ridicule Donny from Queens than admit the overt and imminent threat to reasonableness and middleness and good naturedness the snowballing radicalization of the Democratic party and society presents.
In such a case even someone as sensible as TM can actually consider Joe Biden who is the embodiment of the Scarecrow as Emperor; he not only has no clothes on, he hasn't got a brain either. But the fanciful idea that electing a cipher like Biden who is spouting mumbo jumbo that would have embarrassed Gus Hall will somehow bring America back to the middle is preferable to admitting; "Goddamit these crazy fuckers are commies!" cuz you gotta fight and kill commies and there are few things the good natured, reasonable middle looks forward to with less enthusiasm than living in a world where you gotta kill commies. So it's easier to engage in magical thinking and pretend the problem is Trump.
