Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

The left loves referencing Harry Potter, so I’ll just leave this here:

“What exactly are you so happy about?' Harry asked her.
'Oh Harry, don't you see?' Hermione breathed. 'If she could have done one thing to make absolutely sure that every single person in this school will read your interview, it was banning it!”

Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix

CCGirl does not like what is going on 😳

Steph at 9:56. Been there since March! With you all the way! So done with the scare tactics.

And actually am feeling quite insulted as a “person on the front lines.” If any one on the left wants to ask me how I feel about masks, please stop in. Arghh

Narciso

Thats fascinating because her work was tamer as she went on.

mike in houston

As to this Wuflu BS. I went down to the corner store for a few items the other night. The new guy behind the counter got on me for not wearing a mask.(I have not worn a mask since this whole thing started)I just told him it was BS and to ring up my purchases. I then insisted he come from behind the counter and wipe down the electronic pen I had to use to sign my credit card purchase. Boy you should have seen his face. I am generally a mild-mannered guy but this little Napoleon got my dander up.

BREAKING: Twitter has locked out popular actor and commentator @RealJamesWoods for tweets regarding the Hunter & Joe Biden BOMBSHELL.

Melinda

@HansMahnke

And there it is. Joe made Hunter share half of his "income".

Lady Susan is fun, as the title character is just awful and completely unscrupulous, but she almost (wittily) manages to destroy a bunch of people before her schemes catch up with her. There was a pretty good rollicking film version a couple of years ago. And Austen was only in her late teens when she wrote it--had no illusions about human nature then or later. That's why I'm an Austen scholar.

JM Hanes, Seriously! Dying to read it, and my oldest will be more on board than I am!

A little like the real life georgianna the dutchess didnt do her justice but kiera has the quality of a block of wood.

Narciso

I think its a little far afield

Burisma is one of those ukrainian nesting dolls the outer shell is zylochevsky amd his network that runs through monaco then theres the inner shell that shares ownership with privat.

Narciso

Mancke i heard about through stephen mcintyre who has been the amerigo vespucci of this new world

CCGirl does not like what is going on 😳

Steph, I always thought Harry Potter was a series that was about the left attacking the right, ala Hitler. And then JK Rowling insisted it was not so, and went a bit mental. But I believe she can not unsee what is happening. Can a person write about tribunals, and then not see them? Plus she’s been under attack from the rads lately.

Narciso

Well she had lefty roots amnesty international and the guardian one might think of it like orwell who had to resort to fantasy her robert galbraith series is more grounded.

Narciso

So rowling thought she was in good standing with the progs but you cannot merely acknowledge their lunacy but evangelize it as the Truth

Porchlight

Holy shit, Melinda.

Another post with Rudy's pic.

Grab the image while you can.

How long before we discover that Hunter was/is a bag man for the Democratic Party?

jimmyk

I saw that Taranto tweeted the NYPost story. But if you click on the story you get a warning that the material “may be unsafe.” But it does allow you to click through to the story. I guess Jack isn’t going to lock out a WSJ editor.

Porchlight

This is turning out to be a hell of a day.

Get healthy soon MM, you don't want to miss it.

How long before Joe cancels the only remaining debate?

Narciso

Now you see why they were pushing for earlier and earlier voting.

Porchlight

Where's Hunter? Trump knew all along, lol.

But seriously, I'd like to know where he is. Will he be Epsteined?

Porchlight

Brilliant catch, Narciso.

DrJ

For every Twitter link posted today, once I clicked on it, I got a message "Not avalaible to you."

Why?

You arent entitled dr. J.

I got that a lot with Twitter today but then I closed my browser and opened a fresh one and it stopped.

I think it's partly to throttle conservatives but also just to throttle in general. So much traffic.

Even a Trump hater like Jim Treacher gets into Twitter jail for PasteCrime. He shared the Hunter bathtub pic.

Just ran across this observation from Ernest Hemingway, although it may not be new to anybody but me:

"I drink to make other people more interesting."

It's no coincidence folks. Mars has been hanging over us in the night sky, brighter than it has been in two years:

I see it every night from my porch while watching rallies. :)

Barbara

This thing must be huge for Twitter and Facebook to be taking such obvious steps to censor their websites.

"Burisma is one of those ukrainian nesting dolls." Excellent visual , Narciso.

Porchlight

Yes, I agree, excellent visual.

Barbara, it is HUGE. We all knew some of it...but we never had the hard evidence.

We all know about kickbacks but Biden insisting on collecting half of his family's haul...that is next level.

Narciso

It is a gas company managed by an ex energy minister and owned by the head of the largest bank which collapsed at the end of 2016 that fellow is like the villain in the first equalizer

Momto2

How long do you think Rudy has had this information? What self-control to hold it until this week!

Will we know who in the FBI was given the laptop and covered it - with a pillow?

The partner of the manager died suspiciously and the company is sheltered in cyprus. In the same towm where of steeles sources drinking buddies hangs her hat limmasol

Improbable as it often seems, and whatever his failings, in this election Donald Trump is the candidate of honesty, competence, and legality.

Now I might change my mind about masks.

Hormel Foods, known for its Black Label Bacon, announced the launch of "Breathable Bacon," what it calls "a revolutionary face mask featuring the latest in pork-scented technology."

--McEnany's going on Hannity to talk about the Twitter suspension.--

I'm guessing she went on Hannity to listen to Hannity talk about the twitter suspension.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Haven't been around much the last couple of days, so sad, but then glad, to hear MM had a pretty serious issue, but it sounds like it's solvable and being solved.

Also sad to hear of KK's friend's stepson. Bipolar that does not respond to meds is hell.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

One more observation before I hit the sack;
Imagine the delicious irony if the anti trust laws, which were used to such powerful effect by our first progressive president Republican Teddy Roosevelt against the so-called robber barons, are used by a reelected conservative Republican president Donald Trump to gut the modern day progressive robber barons of Big Tech.

Maybe Trump should give a Cross of Silicon speech like William Jennings Bryan's Cross of Gold, except, you know, win instead.

@JohnBrennan
is one of the hardest-working, most patriotic public servants I’ve ever seen, and our country is better off for it. As president, he was one of my closest advisors and a great friend. And in his memoir, Undaunted, you’ll see why. I hope you’ll read it.

jim nj

Yes, lost my internet for two days and catching up was very concerned to hear about MM. A little relieved to hear that it may not be so bad. Very displeased that anything at all happened to her.

I usually don't comment on blegs for prayers and such. I offer the prayers, but I'm kind of anal about doing so publicly.

I'll make an exception for MM. And for KK's friend's son. My sister struggles with bi-polar disorder.

KK reminded me that I should call her and see how she is doing.

https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/the-founders-wanted-you-to-own-an-ar-15/

"Not one Founder mentioned anything about “hunting” or “skeet shooting” during the debates over the drafting of the Constitution."

"arms" was a commonly understood, and plural, term at the time. 30-40 years earlier in the French-Indian War it would have meant musket, pistol, hatchet, knife and more. Rifles appeared in the Revolution. Progress in weaponry, I think, was already assumed by the time of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights..

anonamom

This thing with FBI not doing anything with the Biden laptop info--
time to pardon Snowden.

Arguably, he is a patriot who had NO ONE he could trust in this country to go to with the information he had.

Change my mind.

hrtshpdbox

anonamom, agree completely; people on both the left and right have long said that Snowden should have faced the music here in the U.S. if he was a proper whistleblower, but maybe he had a pretty good idea why that wouldn't work out so well for him.

Re: travel.
We've done plenty; took our sixth plane ride Sunday. My kids have too. Some friends and some of their adult kids too.

We wear N-95s, but take the beverage the nice attendants offer, so take them off for part of the trip; use the hand wipes on the flights we've been given them. So far, so good.

At work, we (who are reportedly covered in aerosoles of the pharyngeal secretions of every patient we ventilate, so basically every patient who has a general anesthetic, and REALLY covered during intubation and extubation) number about 300 across all our facilities---and we are stable with ONE person testing postive for Covid back in April.
Which she is pretty sure got from her teens, who were both positive.

One person in seven months.

We wear N-95s during intubations and extubations, cover our eyes with glasses or goggles or the super cheap disposable plastic shields, and wash our hands.
That's it--and you can do that on a plane too, if that concerns you.

Zinc, HCQ or quercetin, vit D.
Vit c if you feel like you need a boost.

WASH YOUR HANDS! DON'T TOUCH YOUR FACE.

I was able to post it hrts.
I've been retweeting every Tweet that refers to Hunter or NYPost that passes my eyeballs, in an attempt to see when (if) they lock down the small potatoes.

How do we decide which Townhall we watch? Seeing Biden tonight is of interest to me--is he stressed out beyond coherence?
Is there something like Res Zone, where both will be on the screen at the same time?

(When they play the audios along with them, it makes me CRAZY!)

do you suppose the Bidens did not report this income to the IRS?

I'll be a "vote by mail" (VBM) election observor later today ... and hopefully frequently from here on out as ballots are starting to arrive. RoV (Registrar of Voters) office expects things to get heavy starting Oct 21.

Headline from Insty: TO BE FAIR, SHE’S REALLY IMPRESSIVE: Amy Coney Barrett Stuns at Third Day of Hearings, Leaving Feinstein ‘Really Impressed.’

But the 15 year old, following news via her left wing site told me ACB flubbed a question on the contents of the 1st Amendment. I'm not watching, anyone know what that's about?

Another Bob

I’ve stopped watching the clown shows Jim, but I highly doubt she flubbed much on anything. Especially First Amendment jurisprudence.

Jane

Good Morning! Should be a very interesting day!

Manuel Transmission

I caught part of a fairly lengthy interaction on 1st Am where she was emphasizing the gummint vs non-gummint constraints as well as states vs. USG. Would have needed some sentence diagramming to make total sense out of it. And of course that would leave lots of room for unscrupulous editing.

Momto2

Today should be interesting. I see some of the Twitter accounts have been unlocked. Too little, too late is my opinion.

AND (as if anyone needed more evidence) it's plain as day the whole "trending" thing is being manipulated - no mention of Hunter/NY Post/ censorship, etc.

James D.

Twitter is not a nonpartisan “public square”. Why do we seem to be expecting otherwise?

Of course it's not. But if it presents itself as one, we (and, more importantly, elected officials with the power to regulate it) keep needing to call out the hypocrisy and partisanship and bias and rank dishonesty there.

Another Bob

“Biden is winning by 14 points?”

There’s a distinct lack of shame and self-respect. I certainly would consider that an embarrassment, and be sure I’m not put in that position again.

But it happens to him again and again...
