Yeah, the media and social media giants really treated Sarah Palin’a hacked emails and the illegal recordings of Mitt Romney with such respect and kid gloves.

Dave (in MA)

Newsmax got a "no comment" from Trump when asked about the future status of Barr.

I must be totally retarded as I can't post images even with PostImage. How rude!

Lurking after dinner at my club. Watching SkyNews from the UK and how they are obsessed with George Floyds killing and others here. We are the labortory that the world watches with curiosity as to whether we have created a mouse who can destroy earth or a dandelion who can save us."

Pathetic, really.

Probably JMH from back thread: "links to Twitter lately? I keep getting "Something went wrong, try again" messages"

I wonder if it's a bug but they don't fix it because it means they get multiple hits.

henry

I have no idea. Did Evers send Kung Flu active people to nursing homes? Schools & colleges are hot spots.. but hospital admissions are up. We are still mandatory mask and basically locked down.

@thenewsoncnbc

Wisconsin has opened an emergency field hospital as coronavirus cases surge and doctors urge people to take precautions. @shaqbrewster is on the ground with the latest.

“Wisconsin has opened an emergency field hospital”

Bet that one is empty too.

Another Bob

“It’s long past time for DOJ to investigate whether the corrupt and pro-communist Big Tech monopolies are censoring U.S. officials, including the President of the United States, at the behest of communist China or Russia.”

Amen.

Leading with NY Post article.

BeastsEngland

Mentions his powerful hair and then Biden’s corrupt Ukraine dealings. He’s the master. Landslide, baby.

jimmyk

“ Wisconsin has opened an emergency field hospital as coronavirus cases surge ”

Is there any real capacity problem or is this just more theater in the pursuit political power?

henry

“Never a more corrupt administration than Obama / Biden”

Another Bob

The New York Post main Twitter account has been locked.

Anyone taking bets on Trump’s Twitter account getting nuked?

henry

Jimmyk, current Kung Flu hospitalizations are at a high for Kung Flu. From 200s to 900s over past couple weeks. Never give context on where, or if any hospital is swamped. So whoever knows ain’t telling.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Trump still going on Hunter.

Captain Hate

Thanks for the news about Miss Marple.

Condolences to KK's friend. It's impossible for me to believe the self hatred taught in public and many private schools for young males, particularly white, isn't complicit in these suicides.

What if Trump gives an oval office address, and all the networks and cable channels boycott it? Including FOX?

I'm been thinking about that. Most of the networks stopped covering PDT's daily briefings on covid early on (when it was the big story and everyone was at home to watch) when polling showed a huge surge in approval for POTUS and it was recognized that the American people were for the first time seeing with their own eyes what absolute asshoes the media is, rather than only being allowed to see the manipulated "edits" on the news.

IT'S HAMMER TIME!

“ Never give context on where, or if any hospital is swamped. So whoever knows ain’t telling.”

In other words, no, since if any hospital were swamped it would be all over not just the local news but the NYT, WaPo, CNN etc.

henry

Jimmyk, @maciverwisc. tracks this stuff closely.

Trump now ditching his tie. :)

anonamom

Trump's taking off his tie!

anonamom

Henry, who's got the WuFlu? The "mostly peaceful protestors"?

henry

anonamom, the hotspots appear to be in UW towns. But the spike in hospitalization is a mystery.

The exposes about the Bolsonaro Govt we did all last year and still -- that won journalism prizes, led to the reversal of convictions, resulted in disciplinary charges for prosecutors, etc. - were based on hacked phones. Should that have been censored?

There are a few babes in the crowd tonight... 😎

Mom,

I figure Biden forgot where he brought it, or didn’t know how to get rid of the info.

Guy on Tucker says this is the start of the big tech war v the US.

We have a lot of battles in front of us.

National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien announced Wednesday two American hostages who were held in Yemen by Iranian backed Houthis have been released.

"The United States welcomes the release today of US citizens Sandra Loli and Mikael Gidada from Houthi custody in Yemen. We send our condolences to the family of Bilal Fateen whose remains will be repatriated as well. We extend our sincerest thanks to Sultan Haitham bin Tariq of Oman and King Salman of Saudi Arabia for their efforts to secure the release of our citizens," O'Brien released in a statement. "President Trump continues to prioritize securing the release and repatriation of Americans held hostage abroad. We will not rest until those held are home with their loved ones. President Trump has brought home over 50 hostages and detainees from 22 countries since taking office."

The panic at Twitter has begun.

I knew Dorsey would cave. Just a matter of time.

Porchlight

AB, notice the use of "around" in those three tweets. Such libspeak. I hear it daily at work. Supposed to be "softer" and less "problematic" (read: more feminine) than "about" or "regarding" or "concerning."

Porchlight

JMH, if you're here, it sounds like the Iowa rally is back to off-the-cuff Trump. :)

henry

Dan Gable! Awesome!

lyle

Beasts with the, um..penetrating analysis. 😉

JM Hanes

This might be an opportune moment to persuade folks that a mass exodus to Parler (?) is the best response. If people started spreading the word to everyone who follows them and to their own followers, and if the President and the NY Post and few more high profile Twitter folks led the way it could be epic. Nobody, even lefties are going to leave the President's tweets unread. The media has to read his comments in order to be able to complain about him.

Porchlight

The first glimmer from the RCP average of the inevitable "tightening" (which is BS of course, the giant gap wasn't ever real, it just means pollsters are starting to do what they always do to salvage their "reputations" later):

JM Hanes

Good news, Porch! I picked the wrong night to miss, didn't I?

Porchlight

It's okay JMH, there are many more to come!

Another Bob

So is Dorsey just not in control of his crew? He always acts surprised that these things turned out the way they did.

They’re playing a dangerous (for them) game.

Captain Hate

What reputations would those be, Porch? I ridicule the poll monkeys every election.

This is a discussion of early voting in MI. Progs beginning to grip hard:

Small orange diamond Counties that tend to vote GOP: R +34.2%
Small blue diamond Counties that tend to vote DEM: D +29.1%
Small orange diamond**BELLWEATHERS**: R +17.4%

In Michigan's historic bellweather counties, the GOP currently has a vote lead of just over 40,000 right now. (17.4%)

That is... unexpected.

Dorsey's like all the nouveau riche; when you make it that big that quickly you have no real perspective on how to act when what you do has large consequences.

Pinandpuller

Dayum! Wolf Blitzer getting under Nancy Pelosi’s considerably loose skin.

BeastsEngland

Trump could issue an EO prohibiting federal government agencies from using Twitter and Facebook for official communications. Or even accessing those sites on government-issued devices. That would get their attention.

Thank heavens you got through to MM's family--if not her not-so-great daughter--Momto2! I am so relieved. I bet what happened before (the passing out, the amnesia) was caused by dehydration too.

Narc, do keep your "positronic relays" going smoothly! Since you never post actual nonsense, I searched these out and found it's a Starfleet energy system thing--so perfectly reasonable.

Captain Hate

Shelby Steele, a black conservative who teaches at Stanford, has written and narrated a film about the death of Michael Brown (the "hands up" guy shot in Ferguson by the cop he punched).

Amazon is refusing to allow the film to be sold on its platform, on the grounds that it does not meet Amazon's "content quality expectations."

Steele has a Ph.D. (in English), has won a National Book Critics Circle Award, and is a senior fellow at Stanford.

But his film isn't up to Amazon's "quality expectations." AYFKM?

Amazon's "expectations" are that everybody will toe the leftist line and repeat the lies about Brown that the race baiting MSM and all the race hustlers like Sharpton and Crump have been peddling for years now.

And if an actual black academic like Steele tries to correct the record and tell the truth about what happened, Amazon shuts him out.

F*ck these fascists.

Thanks, lyle and JM Hanes. When the WuFlu hysteria breaks, we need a JOM gathering. Maybe in Atlanta or Nashville? Or possibly somewhere more exotic if ManTran or Hoyden can give me a lift... :)

Captain Hate

To elaborate on my thing about Dorsey, he's only drawn more attention to the story he tried to censor. And he doesn't come off as smart.

Ok I'm going to read and listen to music. This day has worn me down trying to keep up. Trump is a genetic freak with his energy level.

ccgirl

Poor, Miss M! I am so glad she is okay! Best she has time away from this news cycle! The ups and downs are nuts, but WE ARE WINNING! I can feel it!

But my town is solidly and sadly blue. And certainly there are many stories of hypocrisy going on. Not new around these parts. Whatever. I am so done with the local bs, I am not scared to tell them all to take a good look at their hypocrisy. The horror!

KK, so sorry to read your post. The left and it’s fifth column has been a huge part of the misery content in this country, and 2020 is the apex.

Jimsc, thanks. I feel reassured that he is probs okay after speaking with customers who have either been a mess and cleaned up their live. One in particular has been through it all. He took a minute to ask, and reassured me.

I hate to ask. Where has Gus been? I miss his caps and rants.

I'd like to see Shelby Steele sue them in such a way that they would have to articulate what precisely what their content quality expectations are. There's got to be some legal way to get at that information, or at the fact that they have no explicit standards at all. We can all recognize the weasel words here, but we have to figure out some way to protect individuals from the depredations and manipulation of the mega corps. This may not be discrimination on the basis of race in this case, but it is discrimination nonetheless, and if we can't figure out how to make it illegal, we need to do start busting up some corporate chops.

Beasts,

A meet-up is definitely in order. I was pretty tempted by the idea of ice fishing with henry last time we were dreaming up a get together, but at this rate, who knows which states will be open or shut this winter.

It would be fun to go somewhere we could all hang out for more than just a couple of hours, but I'm not sure where that would be.

Wow! The liar has been caught and is in the trap. Seems the Facebook and Twitter censors have failed in their mission. They should be investigated for campaign interference --much worse than the Russians and Chinese. I wonder if Facebook and Twitter are controlled by Putin?

The other day I was wondering why on earth someone like Brennan would hang onto all sorts of incriminating material instead of destroying it. It struck me that just like last time, he probably didn't believe that Trump could another election. Perhaps he wanted a record of all his dubious achievements ready when the Biden administration rolled back into town.

Who Is Lady Susan?
A French publisher is realeasing a facsimile of Jane Austen's first book:

Lady_Susan_Austen

This first significant novel written by Jane Austen, Lady Susan is believed to have been composed in the 1790s when Austen was 18 or 19. The epistolary novel was not published until 1871, 54 years after the author’s death. In it, we meet the titular heroine, a selfish, scheming, and serial seducer. Scholars have compared the novel to Les Liaisons Dangereuses, also epistolary in format and published in 1782.
Sounds like fun, no?

Narciso

Hes like the stock villain from alias or covert affairs. Like philby pere he went native and doesnt acknowledge his home country.
