Yeah, Trump can fake Hunter emails, but 4 years of full time work by CIA/FBI/FiveEyes/Mueller couldn’t fake anything that stuck on Trump.

So as far as faking evidence, we are to believe Trump is competent while the globalists/ Biden people are useless posers. OK.

Or we could be sane and recognize no evidence was found against Trump for the simple reason he isn’t an international criminal, while plenty of evidence against Biden is lying around and confirmable because Biden has been corrupt for at least 47 years.

I choose sanity.

At this point, why would Trump trust the "experts"?

And Melinda, you're making me crazy with your veiled commentary regarding the ongoing revelations. It sounds like you mapped out the level of corruption and are now watching the sun begin to disinfect.

jimmyk

You'd think Hunter would be out there vigorously denying the authenticity of the e-mails, were they, you know, actually fake. Or even if there was no way to establish their authenticity.

Never confuse credentials with capability. “Experts” have the first.

I can't quite let go of that hockey player story....

In these days of social media and videos going viral, every 14 year old is (or should be) aware that anything they do can have a dramatic impact on their future. We do them no favors by pretending otherwise. Normally, I'm pretty forgiving of 14 year old boys' hijinks, but teaming up with another kid to bully and beat up a weaker kid is character defining. It's not that I don't think that people are irredeemable, but it sounds like the only remorse Miller had was that he got caught. He did the minimum required by the court to make amends.

Pro athletes are role models. Yes, there are some awful ones out there, and I'm guessing that some other hockey team might have no trouble overlooking his earlier transgressions and bring him into the fold. Sports teams have to balance talent with chemistry and it might be that Miller hasn't changed his spots.

Difficult to do with a crack pipe in your mouth.

I witnessed an acquaintance get strung out on crack. Went from being lucid to bat-shit crazy in a very short period of time.

After about five years of being clean, he is still just a feeble shell of his former self.

Is meth even worse than crack?

Way, way behind on catch up here--but found this from last night--

OK - I'm going to ask the obvious "old fogy" question. Do parents no longer encourage/want their children to wait until marriage to have sex?

I just told them they had to wait until they were ready to be a parent, because that always was a possibility.
(To which, my then eight year old asked "How about if you are engaged?")

And I have been told I "ruined their sex lives" because of that message, delivered more than once, starting before puberty.

Their love lives have been just fine though.


And my oh my--in the JOM TMI department that opened up yesterday (why I have to read every day!!)--Beast's truly surprising post(considering when we grew up and all--FREE LOVE was most certainly the message) caused me to realize that in not too many years, I will have had his stated experience FOR fifty years!!

God willing.

via @BreitbartNews

Robin, I can't agree with you, as sympathetic as I am to that being a very, very cruel thing to do.

I have sat around campfires with my male family members and in offices with a bunch guys as our work day wound down, and heard stories from their youth.

From fellows who are not just OK, but truly fine guys, who have owned doing some equally cruel things in their early adolescence.

The need to belong at that time is strong; you fall in with the wrong crowd, with an alpha guy whose personality disorder causes him to end up in prison ultimately, and there you are.

So I won't say a single event in anybody's life is "character defining."

When I've heard some of these things, no one was bragging, or proud. Often came up when people were looking for some guidance regarding their own kids at that age, as an example of something very much not good, but did not mean a ticket to ruin.

Amom, that's true. But a young man 4 years removed from his transgression is quite different from one 30 years removed. I suspect if Miller had done more to atone for his action as a 14 year old, the victim would have been more forgiving and wished him well in his pro career.

As it is, he is now an example of how a very poor decision can have a lasting impact on your future with how the world works now. Video evidence of his cruelty exists and is hard to overlook. Everyone has a phone. 14 year old boys have to be far more careful even if developmentally they aren't ready for that. Society keeps behavioral norms because those that transgress are held up as examples - losing status and opportunities.

Don Jr. had an event near Bangor that had a last minute change of venue. The business that had planned the event was told by the state health department that more than 100 people would violate the outdoor gathering rule. After the apple orchard event, there was a sh*t storm because mask and social distancing rules weren't followed. The owner of the orchard said he had "regrets" because he was supposedly told by the Secret Service that Trump's visit would be a quick photo op.
Well,when the word leaked out about the visit thousands of people arrived at the orchard. It won't be surprising if the blue state governors limit the crowd sizes at Trump events the next few days.

Marlene, Minnesota state authorities forced Trump out of a 5000 seat venue in Rochester and into a 200 seat place for the upcoming rally there.

Public health concerns were the stated reason, but we all know that’s likely nonsense. Await the reporting that Trump is losing popularity as the size of his events has dramatically declined.

Porchlight

It won't be surprising if the blue state governors limit the crowd sizes at Trump events the next few days.

Agree, Marlene. But that's just going to piss Trump supporters off even more.

Trump should tweet over and over again:

"If you are unable to get into my rallies because of X asshole governor, please use the time you would have spent to GO VOTE!"

That should rattle their cages.

jimmyk

From narc's link on Sharansky:

Sharansky dwells in considerable detail on his struggle to live in truth [in the Soviet Union]. There is a reason for that. He is deeply concerned with what he views as the dawning of an age of doublethink in America—a phenomenon best captured in the Cato Institute’s recent finding that 62% of Americans have political views they are afraid to share.

Doublethink is dangerous for democracy, he warns. That the new brand of cultural totalitarianism that induces people to self-censor doesn’t come from the government, nor is enforced by a KGB-like agency, is cold comfort to him: Manufactured public opinion of the kind that today’s social and legacy media produce is just as capable of silencing people and pushing them into split lives as are state propaganda and brute force. Against this, there is only one remedy, he told me: “first and foremost, each person must decide for himself that he will not be a doublethinker; that she will say what she really thinks.”

Yep.

Porchlight

Await the reporting that Trump is losing popularity as the size of his events has dramatically declined.

Of course but it will make zero difference. The only people who eat that stuff up are already voting Biden.

There used to be a decent sized Russian population in MN. I don't know what the numbers look like now. The old Nordeast neighborhood in Mpls sported Russian markets and delis as late as the early-mid-90s, but it's all hipsterized now.

I've heard via my MN sources that people are leaving the Twin Cities in droves. Could affect some races there (like Ilhan's). Most are moving to suburbs/outstate, but others leaving the state entirely.

GrandSoylent#1 and I are taking a field trip to the luthier today as part of her Soylent Elementary school day music appreciation section. Gonna talk to the man, see about getting a guitar that hasn't been played in 20-ish years back in working order.

Yesterday she expressed her admiration for the musical stylings of David Gilmour, and she was first introduced to the eternal question of "how can you have any pudding when you don't eat your meat/"

It's gonna be fun.

Cato Institute’s recent finding that 62% of Americans have political views they are afraid to share

Consider which side of the political aisle cancel culture comes from. Losing your job, your reputation, is pretty daunting and these fascists know it. IMO, this is the greatest threat to our country.

Crack vs Meth
I've known regular users of both at some point in my life. Also known cops who have dealt with addicts (my 1SG was a Baltimore Co. homicide detective with some stories). Through those observations, I think it is safe to say that while crack may make people crazy, meth tends to make people evil and crazy. Meth makes people do really bad stuff, and just not care.

Meth is also more heavily favored by gay men as it apparently enhances certain sexual acts. Considering the rumors that there are pix of Hunter either about to, or getting, pegged on the hard drive, my guess is that he is a meth addict. What little soul he proably ever had has been cooked off by that stuff.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Everyone has a phone. 14 year old boys have to be far more careful even if developmentally they aren't ready for that. --

So ask them to do something they're developmentally incapable of doing or they're branded for life and their character defined forever?
Imagine if Big Brother had a drone following everyone everywhere at all times. Think how careful we'd all have to be.
I know a very large number of people who did really stupid and criminal things as youths and those things didn't define their character nor deny them a chance to do the thing they love to do. The punishment that is meted out in court is supposed to be the punishment. Once that price is paid, especially by a first time juvenile offender, he is supposed to have a clean slate to prove it was not a habitual act.
If it turns it was a habitual act THEN he should be sanctioned. But if it wasn't and he's sanctioned beyond his sentence anyway, you might very well turn an otherwise good citizen into a bad one.
The reason we're even talking about this demonstrates it is not a legitimate act by hockey. And the reason we're even talking about it is because white-guy-hits-black-guy.
If it was black-guy-hits-white-guy not a single person outside the two parties would even know about it and the NHL would be proudly talking about their inclusivity by drafting a black hockey player.

The degree to which NBC is actively participating in concealing the Biden corruption is really breathtaking. The fake “document” they’re going on about is entirely irrelevant to the Biden issue at hand.

The Infamous Ignatz

In a country in which the local Democratic civil authorities encourage millions of their people across the country to demonstrate in close contact and large crowds and either condone or do nothing to stop innumerable criminal and violent acts by their people and then turn around and limits the crowds at their political enemies' legitimate peaceful political rallies to a few hundred people and in a country where the entire mainstream media ignores the now clear fact that the Democrat's presidential candidate is a blatantly and even openly corrupt goon accepting large chunks of illicit cash from foreign powers and enemies, if we wish to keep our liberties and values rather than be subjugated by these very same people we will almost certainly be forced to wage a hot war against them.
