That's real retarded, GUS.

lyle

Just hope the F U reaction to lockdown nazi overreach is bigger.<

This is what the think is happening. Bigly.

GUS

Porch, I grew up in Wauwatosa. It is a steaming pile of scat. Used to be the most beautiful suburb.

Extraneus

No, Beasts. Isn't he waiting list something like 3 years on those?

GUS

Sister speaking. Again, I recognized SHEEYIT, and MOTHERFUCKER, but the rest of her lingo is generally intelligent. It's very very very sad.

Porchlight

I believe you, GUS.

My lib friends in MN can't imagine the beautiful green suburbs of their state being slowly destroyed, but that is what will happen if their elected politicians continue to have their way.

Captain Hate

Thanks for that link, Ext, and JMH for bringing it up.

GUS

Porch, I know the D.A. JOHN CHISHOLM. Personally I actually like him. Or rather LIKED him. He has turned hard core partisan left. BIG TIME.

From Dan:

Dan Bongino
Thank you all for your kind words & well wishes.
I’m out of surgery & I feel good. They removed the entire tumor from my neck.
The bad news is, it looks like lymphoma.
The good news is, there are treatments options.
Either way, it’ll be okay. Thank you all for your support Thumbs up

So, which channel is showing the destruction of Kenosha tonight? Or is some other poor city?

Wauwatosa, Jack. In Milwaukee County. BLM might note the NG is set up in Wauwatosa, and trash State Street and the County Courthouse where Chisholm works. Can mess up Barrett’sstupid trolley while they are at it.

Trump has CHYNA VYRUS antibodies, per WH physician.

According to TKAnon, Trump’s 4D plan was to super spread the virus throughout the administration to prove that they can still get business done despite the inconvenience of having flu-like sickness in the workplace.

“We have done a terrific job and I think the America people can now see, through our example, that this virus should not keep us locked down!”

BREAKING NEWS
STATE OF EMERGENCY AND CURFEW HAS BEEN DECLARED IN WAUWATOSA WISCONSIN FROM 7 P.M. TO 6 A.M. STARTING TODAY

There is a wait for the new ones, Extraneus, but Reverb has used listings. Several of the top players swear by the darned thing, but I’ve never even seen one in person.

Thanks, Henry, i always get my So Wi towns mixed up, whether they serve Brats and beer or Perch fry and beer:)

Watch her attempt to out-asshoe Chrissy Wallace tonight.

Porchlight

Oh good, the Wauwatosa curfew is just in time for folks to catch the debate. I'm sure when Kamala comes out strong against the police and in favor of Justice for St. Fentanyl, Breonna, Jacob Blake and whoever this latest WI dude was, that will go down quite nicely.

JM Hanes

Extraneus:

I suspect that to be an Eddie van Halen, you have to live & breath your guitar to the exclusion of almost everything else -- something that seems true of many a genius in almost any field. He was probably hanging out in some iteration of a garage 24/7, just playing around. In several subsequent clips of his solo work, he really seemed to be enjoying himself. And when he went an unexpected direction, he'd look up at the audience with the cutest grin on his face. He looked soooo young in most of what I watched, which is not how I thought of him.

It’s not just Wauwatosa, they’re boarding stuff up in Brookfield basically on the border.

BeastsEngland

’...he really seemed to be enjoying himself.’

Good catch, JM Hanes! Hendrix enjoyed himself, as well. As does GUS’ pupil Greg Koch.

Porchlight

JMH, last night we got out my old spiral bound VH fan book, one of those things you used to be able to buy at record stores, full of huge photos and bios etc. It's actually a pretty cool piece of ephemera. The photos are hard to find now.

Anyway, there's a quote from Eddie about how he's an introvert and doesn't get along with most people and so he just hangs out by himself and plays his guitar.

His faces and wide open mouths and grins were the best.

JM Hanes

Whoa, Melinda! Them's fightin' words from the President!

Does anyone have a copy of the BLM manifesto page? I want to send it to my kids.

18+ hours straight thru drive from Seattle to OC yesterday. My gawd!

I could see the hills burnt along the 5 in both Oregon and Cali. bad, but not as bad as driving into main gate Yosemite a couple of years ago with the fire crews still putting our embers for 50 miles.

We live in a beautiful country. For 100 miles in the northern part of the San Joaquin Valley it was rice harvesting season. Man, that smell brings back memories. Silos every 2 miles or so all along the tracks, the Sacramento River flowing from the north. California is truly blessed by nature. The politicians have f'ed it beyond hope.

The U haul rental was $900 but if you want to reverse the trip, it's double that.

California is truly blessed by nature. The politicians have f'ed it beyond hope.

It is because California is so blessed and beautiful that they have been able to abuse it like they have. It is so spectacular that people are willing to stay and take the abuse.

lyle

It is so spectacular that people are willing to stay and take the abuse.

Judging by all the the CA license plates I see around here, that number of people is getting smaller by the day.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Never did make the mountains since the smoke was pretty thick.

--Dan Bongino diagnosed with lymphoma, after surgery to remove tumor in his neck.--

I figured either sarcoma or lymphoma. I have three friends who have had non Hodgkins lymphoma [of which there really are 57 varieties according to one of the 3 friends] and all three are apparently cured and doing well. One of them had a very large tumor swell up very quickly on her neck that was considerably bigger than Bonginos.
It is possible to catch it too late but it is usually found quicker than internal organ cancers because inevitably one or more lymph nodes balloons. And the treatment is often more tolerable than standard chemo as a lot of it is monoclonal antibody stuff like Rituxin. If you're gonna get cancer there are many, many worse ones to get.

bubarooni

I read with interest TC's take on McConnell knowing he's playing a weak hand and thus the rush to confirm Barrett.

I wouldn't discount that entirely but, I think he's driven by two things:

1. Capture the seat and thus complete his plan of overturning the judiciary and sealing his own legacy.

2. Eliminate one of the prime factors motivating the left, the open seat which they hope to fill.

I think number 2 will depress turnout on the left and thus it's a good enough reason in it's own right, and probably the more important.

As to the polls, I think they are skewed and a part of the enemedia strategy of depressing the right's turn out.

I thought the same thing last time around and believe that was born out by the results.

GUS

Bub, I like TC, but that analysis is ridiculous.

Let me put it simply. If the GOP doesn't just RAM this nominee down these evil fuckers throats.
THEY ARE PUSSIES, and they are nuts.
One chance and it's RIGHT NOW.

Narciso

Prayers for bongino.

Susan page is what you pull off your shoe, and light on fire, so of course the commission approved her as moderator (yes im using it in the mob sense)

Analyses aside GUS, couldn’t agree more.

Shove it down their throats TODAY. It’s what they’d do.

Jack Lillywhite

No debate for me. I am a locked in Rep vote. Plus I need to read.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Speaking of health stuff I've been watching that video asw linked a few days ago of Dr Malcolm Kendrick who sounds a lot like Anonomom [and others] with his belief cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease, carbs and insulin are bad, fat is good etc, etc.
Interesting stuff. He also has precisely the logical take on Covid; it's bad for sick geezers and not as bad as the flu for everyone else so let's protect the geezers and everyone else take off your masks quit isolating and lets get sick and immune together and get it over with.
Sounds like a very sensible guy. So I did a little investigation of him and came upon an article in something called rationalwiki that I have to quote.
They call him a conspiracy theorist and essentially a quack who cherry picks his data. They particularly ridicule his theory that LDL cholesterol has little to nothing to do with atherosclerosis by citing this footnote;

Low-density lipoproteins cause atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. 1. Evidence from genetic, epidemiologic, and clinical studies. A consensus statement from the European Atherosclerosis Society Consensus Panel

LOL
And he's the cherry picker, but a thing actually called the Atherosclerosis Society Consensus Panel miraculously comes to the consensus that everything they always say is in fact the consensus of truth. I suspect a Society dedicated to a cause and looking for a consensus is pretty likely to find one and it is exceedingly unlikely it will not be the one they already believed in and went looking for from the start.

Ralph L

My accent came up as Inland North, which I guess is upper MidWest. Who knew 2 hours in O'Hare could do so much? I lived in Norfolk, Newport, Charleston, and SoCal before age 9, then Alexandria VA until age 31, and NC (where my parents were from) since.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

That Doc Kendrick guy reminded me of the Lancet chief who proclaimed that 50% of science is wrong. And that is based on actual meta studies that found at least 50% of scientific papers were irreplicable.

So, if half of the published studies that pass peer review and are presumed scientifically worthy are in fact wrong I have to wonder which science it is we're supposed to follow. With some new thing like this bug I'm guessing the number may be closer to 75-80%. Following a guy with a pocket full of fortune cookies or coins to flip makes at least as much sense as "following the science".

Relinking this provocative and important twitter thread from earlier today;
Thread on why the Ukraine 2014 Euromaidan Revolution is probably going to end up the defining event of the century.
Weaves disparate facts together convincingly. May not be completely right but close enough for communist government work.

Threadkiller

Were you suggesting that I was suggesting 4D chess, TK?

I wasn’t. For several days I have been telling friends and family how I think Trump could really use his quick recovery and his administration’s overall strength through “crisis” as proof that this is no worse than a bad flu season as far as the effect it should have on our lives.

Threadkiller

My fav was the one where they are going to use Trump's plasma as the base for a new improved COVID vaccine....

LOL

BeastsEngland

’I wonder if they could tell a big difference in a blind test. I'm pretty sure I couldn't.’

I’ve listened to audio samples of a Klon versus the better clones and I could hear the difference. Like the original Ibanez ‘Tube Screamer’, it may be one of the few effects that can’t be accurately duplicated.

Imagine how crazy the left would go if we nominated a gay guy for President. I’m all in!

In CA Prop 16 is the re-establishment of racism in state gov't contracts, university admissions and hiring. I posted this on my local NextDoor and waiting for the deluge of "why do you hate Black people" posts from white liberals.

Prop 16.
I'm reading the Proposition language.
Sentence 1 says the old Prop 209 prohibits the use of race and other personal characteristics by the California government for hiring, awarding contracts and university admission.
Sentence 2 describes various state and local government bodies.
Sentence 3 says we should repeal Prop 209.

Isn't this racism, straight up?

But above and beyond the morality of awarding contracts, job offers and admission to schools based on race, ethnicity, sex and so on ... how would this be implemented?
If you wanted to get a job in the DMV would you be encouraged to get genetic testing similar to 23andMe? Would the state issue laminated cards that display our racial makeup for us to carry around?

Who else is old enough to remember when South Africa's racial policies and apartheid was considered a bad thing?

JimNorCal

I'm ready for the inevitable claim of systemic and systematic racism in society.
Our Prop16 only applies to CA state and local gov't entities.
Not private.
Not other states.
Not federal.

If you believe our state gov't is cheating black (and other) citizens, instead of amending our state constitution, you should be "un-electing" the officials of our one-party state who are oppressing all these people.

Porchlight

Another indicator I hadn't thought about until just now: the incredible proliferation of righty/sane/Trump supporting media since 2016.

RSBN increasing their presence, OANN, a new effort called FirstTV that just sprang up, American Greatness, The Epoch Times, the Daily Caller is now huge, Tucker etc.

Fox is shriveling aside from Tucker and declining due to left-wing inside influence.

These venues wouldn't be doing so well absent substantial financial and viewer support. AmSpec was on life support for awhile there and is now booming. National Review is a husk of its former self and The Weekly Standard is gone.

I do not understand why anyone still gives Andy McCarthy any credibility or respect at this point.

For him to act as though the unelected bureaucrats at DoJ, FBI, CIA or anywhere else in the federal government, will simply and automatically follow orders from the President, after 4 years of daily demonstrations that they won’t, and that they suffer no consequences for their failure to do their jobs, is a bad joke.
