Pence won and we all care because he exposed Kamala for the lying idiot that she is and always will be.

Plus BLM is converting people looted suburb by looted suburb. Wauwatosa up for destruction after being softened up last night.

More important than a debate:

@jrrosswrites

BREAKING: A split federal appeals court has stayed a judge's order delaying the deadline for Wisconsin's absentee ballots.

In the 2-1 decision, court ruled the proposed change was too close to the election.

Keeps 8 p.m. Election Day as deadline for Wisconsin absentee ballots.

henry

ROFL. Wauwatosa is a continuation of Milwaukee. Not even close to rural.

@rebelheartbea

The BLM/Antifa peaceful protesters are rioting and vandalizing rural homes in Wauwatosa Wisconsin. This is coming to a neighborhood near you soon if you continue to defund police. Get locked and loaded everyone and defend your family and home.

Tom R

Hey Beasts are you a Bama alumni? (willowed)

FYI I've spent the last several weeks on a FB group of parents whose kids attend any public university in Alabama. I have a kid at Bama and to my disappointment the administration at Bama has become the same kind of leftwing lunatics you find at other universities around the country. You would not believe the COVID 19-related draconian/totalitarian measures they have been inflicting on students so far this semester. For several weeks all social activities were banned and students were not allowed to even visit other people in the dorms.

It's apparently worse at Bama than other universities in state. Another thing that makes the situation at Bama worse compared to the other schools is that the mayor of Tuscaloosa is a leftwing Democrat who apparently has adopted the same tactics that DeBlasio is enforcing in NYC. Last week the Tuscaloosa PD arrested several hundred students after the Texas A&M game and gave them $300+ fines for not wearing a mask in public.

Last but not least, the Bama SGA is forcing all student organizations (500+ on campus) to undertake mandatory SJW diversity training. Every student organization must have 20% of their members attend this mandatory training aka SJW propaganda/indoctrination or they won't be allowed to do whatever it is their organization was created to do. There are multiple Christian student organizations on campus like the Baptist Student Union who are being forced to watch "diversity" training that condemns Christians for being pro-life, supports the ANTIFA/BLM movement, etc.

Suffice it to say I and countless number of parents are livid about what has been going on at Bama this semester.

GUS

Henry, I too was going to mention that TOSA is a suburb. It was the most beautiful suburb when I was growing up. Even WARREN SPAHN lived there.

There is nothing about bLACK lies matter or the black community that has endeared them to me.

NOTHING.

Tom R

It's hard for me to believe Wisconsin is even considered a battleground state at this point. With all the destruction caused by ANTIFA/BLM riots you would think Wisconsin is solid red in Trump's favor.

JM Hanes

Hello MaryRose! Sorry to hear you were locked out, but very glad to know you weren't sick!


henry:

"BREAKING: A split federal appeals court has stayed a judge's order delaying the deadline for Wisconsin's absentee ballots."

Do you suppose any of Trump's judicial appointments are having an effect on recent voting-related decisions? I've been so relieved that multiple courts seem to be taking a dim view of giving Dems extra time to come up with the additional votes they need in tight races.

Old Lurker

Willowed Mea culpa to Iggy:

Iggy, you are right of course (1:00 previous thread) that the math is not a straight line. The old adage is that a stock which falls 50% in value has to double to get back to where it was happens to be correct but only at that one spot on the curve. As the fall gets bigger, the climb back gets even bigger (a drop by 2/3 has to triple to get back) and then vice versa for smaller drops. Minus 30% works just as you said.

I shouldn't have skipped over doing the math in making my point in agreeing with Jimmy that climbing up is harder than climbing down. (I confess it didn't look right but I clicked post anyway...)

So sue me.

:-)

The Infamous Ignatz

--So sue me.--

I'll need an address to have you served. I will make sure the process server wears a mask though. Stay safe.

The Infamous Ignatz

Perfect timing by mere seconds, OL. :)

Old Lurker

JM Hanes

TM:

"Time's a wastin' on the Trump turnaround."

If history repeats itself, you won't notice it till Nov. 3, or whenever the networks can no longer deny the obvious, whichever comes last.

The Infamous Ignatz

Mirengoff with a good one to counterbalance his simpleminded stupid one from yesterday;
BIDEN AT GETTYSBURG

These three words are enough to make me sick. Why? Because as my friend Steve Silbiger reminded me, in 1987 when Biden was running for President he bragged that “we Delawareans were on the South’s side in the Civil War.” He also touted the fact that George Wallace once praised him as one of the outstanding young politicians in America.

That’s not all. In the 1970s, Biden worked closely with arch-segregationist James Eastland. He boasted about their relationship just a few years ago when campaigning for Doug Jones.


Almost makes you wonder why an anti-racist like Kabala deigns to run with Biden the bigot.

lyle

So the FBI claims they uncovered a plot by right-wing militia to kidnap Waxy Whitmer? How convenient.

Seems they aren’t all that motivated to uncover plots by Antifa and BLM...

Old Lurker

And if TM can say this "...but if that debate didn't change any minds then Harris won", then I can repeat what I said early this morning:


Any country that would willingly put Biden/Harris in control over the alternative of Trump/Pence is not a serious society that even pretends to want for itself the dreams expressed in the preambles of the documents that established the country in the first place.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Catch me if you can, Ig.--

I'll just tell my process guy to look for the big house on the beach with the cantilevered Ledge™ and the gun turrets on the corners.

Who cares? (My apologies for actually responding to the blog host's post.)

According to the totally neutral moderator last night, both Trump and Biden are likely to croak in office, so one would think that if you prefer Pence over Harris, then you would vote for that ticket.

Who cares? Anyone who lives in the suburbs who doesn't want the federal government taking over zoning regulations.
Who cares? Anyone who doesn't want a green new deal which will make Solyndra look like small potatoes?
Who cares? Anyone who doesn't want the SCOTUS packed with clones of Sotomayor and Elena Kagan who will become a new superlegislature.
Who cares? Anyone who doesn't want Washington DC and Puerto Rico to become states.
Who cares? Anyone who has more than two dimes in a 401K that they wish to hold onto once all the other hare-brained liberal schemes cause them to run out of OPM and start looking for other sources of revenue?
Who cares? Anyone who doesn't federal control of police procedures, and a national list of police, who have broken federal guidelines, red meat for the trial lawyers..

Is this the Andy McCarthy column that has people pissed?
Not treason, not a crime — but definitely a gross abuse of power

I recoil at the idea what Brennan, Barry, Hillary etal did was not a crime. But was it? If so what? I suspect there are not a small number of underlying crimes that they could and should be charged with, especially Hillary, but was their use of the levers of government against Trump criminal? If not the statutes need updating, no?

Soylent Red

Ignatz:

Hillary, at a minimum, is guilty of mishandling classified information. The fact that it was found on an unsecured computer and server makes it handling and storage. For that alone she could get five years in FAPP and fines.

Brennan, Comey, and Clapper lied to Congress under oath, when it has been proven that both had firsthand knowledge of what was going on. That used to send you to jail. Probably still does for us plebians.

Brennan, as CIA director, briefed this to Obama. Not sure whether anything can be done to him, but if it ever came out he ordered or blessed criminal activity, it would definitely blot his already garbage record.

This is all theoretical. Special people have special rules and get special treatment. More evidence that rule of law in this country is a forgotten relic.

Captain Hate

This is reason enough to terminate the FBI

Neo

The Biden ads in PA have been casting the Trump delayed withholding of Social Security and Medicare taxes as taking money away from those plans .. and from Seniors. Actually, it merely delays collection.

Trump also dropped a comment at one point that "perhaps we could get rid of them completely", which turned into taking money from SS and Medicare to support his tax cuts.

Captain Hate

Is this the Andy McCarthy column that has people pissed?

Not I. It was a tweet making excuses for Haspell.

As BLM riots continued in WI, isn't it curious the FBI has an informant in every "White Militia" in the US, but yet are unable to infiltrate ANTIFA, BLM, or the NFAC. They spend all their time trying to encourage/entrap 1 group, while completely ignoring the other. Wonder why?

Mask and sunglasses. MY comment is that this mask mandate benefits certain miscreants. How in the heck can you identify a guy who has on both a mask and sunglasses?

To quote Old Lurker: "Lunacy!"

The Infamous Ignatz

Soylent,
Those are all underlying crimes and they should but probably won't be prosecuted.
But is mounting a CIA and FBI op to discredit Trump and swing an election a crime? If it isn't why the hell isn't it?
The Hatch act would be a tough sell because they weren't explicitly electioneering or campaigning for the sozzled, old gargoyle.

Old Lurker

James "Nothing he says can possibly have any value at this point."

And therefore I have not wasted ten seconds reading anything he has written in more than two years - just about as much attention as I have given Drudge or Fox News. I like Joe deGenova, but I do not waste time on his crap either.

The Infamous Ignatz

OK, now you guys quit bugging me. I've got stuff to do. :)

Old Lurker

Ig: "...and swing an election..."

Those things continued well into the elected POTUS's term in office and that right there should be another category of crime.

If ANY of these things are not crimes, then the entire "Rule of Law" is a scandalous fiction.

Soylent Red

But is mounting a CIA and FBI op to discredit Trump and swing an election a crime?

IANAL but...seems like an attempt to deprive someone of their civil rights. Moreover it seems like it would violate one or more laws regarding election tampering.

TBH, I don't see this so much as a problem of determining criminal activity but more of will. When they decided to railroad Flynn, they decided what they wanted to do first and supported it with law. This is the Soviet nature of how DoJ works, if I can believe what I read. Whatever the case, I am confident that if someone really had a hard on for these people, they could all be put away for a good long time.

One of the early stories of the alleged kidnap plot against MI Gov Whitmer mentioned that one of the plotters was shown in a video in front of an anarchist flag.
The real questions seems to be:
1) can you be an anarchist and a white supremacist ?
2) can you be a right wing anarchist miltia member and a white supremacist ?
BONUS question
3) can you be a socialist revolutionary anarchist and a white supremacist ?
some of the videos of BLM/Antifa encounters with police have them saying obvious racist chants to minority policemen

From Ig’s 4:00:

The lockdowns may have been justified in the spring, when so little was known about the virus and the ways to contain it. But now that we know more, there’s no ethical justification for continuing this failed experiment.

As if ethics ever had anything to do with the lockdowns past the first few weeks.

PD: FTAReligious groups filed two lawsuits Thursday challenging the constitutionality of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order limiting the size of gatherings inside houses of worship in communities seeing a rise in Covid-19 cases.

The order was part of new lockdown restrictions after city and state officials have for weeks tracked increases in cases in sections of Brooklyn, Queens and Rockland and Orange counties. Most of the affected areas are home to large Orthodox Jewish populations.

The lawsuits were filed in federal court in Brooklyn on behalf of the Diocese of Brooklyn, which represents the Roman Catholic community, and Agudath Israel of America, an umbrella group representing prominent Orthodox rabbis. The restriction took effect in the city on Thursday.

In its lawsuit, Agudath Israel said that Mr. Cuomo imposed the restrictions on the eve of three Jewish holidays, which fall on Oct. 9, 10 and 11, depriving tens of thousands of people of religious worship and observance.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

he United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Wednesday reversed a lower court decision to grant a new trial in a fraud case involving Hunter Biden's ex-business partner Devon Archer.

Hunter Biden was not charged in the scheme, but Biden's name was reportedly "invoked at various stages of the fraud as a selling point in transactions."

Archer was indicted on March 26, 2018 and charged with conspiracy to commit securities fraud and securities fraud for a Native American tribal bond scheme hatched by Archer and several of his business partners. After a trial lasting approximately one month, the jury found Archer guilty on both counts. Archer asked the district court to set aside the jury's verdict and successfully pushed for a retrial.

Old Lurker:

Ditto here. I'm trying to remember the last time any of his predictions came to pass. I've never really forgiven him, or Tensing (?), however, for giving Eric Holder their stamp of approval when he was proposed for the Atty General spot. They temporarily allayed my fears, but he quickly proved far worse than I had even imaged. Corrupt, arrogant, bigoted, he must be pretty damn slippery to have avoided mention in all the DoJ dirt that's been revealed, when he was Obama's right hand and top of the DoJ heap the whole time.
