Have you ever taken CNN--aka the Comic News Network--seriously? I mean those guys live in an alternate non reality based world. If they ever remove their lips from any "progressive" politician's posterior, it will be the first time.

--But ask me about John McCain, who may have been the one guy that could have impressed Putin.--

Had been a curiously humorless morning until this nugget.
Trump was the one guy besides Reagan who put America and its interests first and consequently is the one guy who handled Putin well. Clinton, W, Barry and the present dolt all occasionally talked tough but mostly were embarrassing in both their open pleas for cooperation and backing down on what mattered despite their occasional rugged rhetoric. They and the soft headed shits at State have no idea how to play the game.

McCain? Scarier to Putin, no. Demands bigger piece of Putin’s action than Biden? Yes. Otherwise post return to US soil, McShame might as well be Xiden… a corrupt, pompous asshoe.



Thanks for the manchin leaked phone call on previous thread. Had a good college friend go to work for bacon many years ago and is still there last I looked.

Interesting new CRT video out https://www.city-journal.org/theoretical-roots-and-practical-consequences-of-critical-race-theory that certainly validates my intuition based on knowing these theories and players that all this hype has a synthesis in mind.

Biden is no worse now vis a vis Russia and Red China than he would have been twenty or thirty or forty years ago. For example, Biden was a stalwart opponent of Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative. Biden has always been a reliable Dem accommodationist to the commies.

Re the Foreign Affairs article on Taiwan in the prior thread: I suppose if Taiwan has a open secret nuke program similar to Israel's, we would have heard about it by now. The only hope for Taiwan to keep its democracy would be to have a nuke program that could credibly cause a nuke visit to Xi's men's room.


Meanwhile from the land of a thousand lakes peaceful protests:


"Minn. has 100 National Guardsmen on standby as new gun evidence emerges in Winston Smith shooting" NEW=gun+6 spent .380 shells found in Mr. Smith's (20x convicted thug wanted on felony gun charge) car. Translation: he shot at cops. But they gotta riot!



What McCain said when others fawned over Putin:

“I looked in his eyes and saw 3 letters: A K, a G, and a B.”


I'm not a lawyer (nor have I ever played one on TV) so I'm curious about the concept of the federal government out sourcing activities forbidden by the Bill of Rights.

We've seen this brought up in RussiaGate when the idea came that the CIA/FBI had gotten MI6 to do their dirty work. Early this year, it came up again when DHS talked about using it for avoid 4th amendment concerns. Now, it comes up again with Merrick Garland enlisting 'Big Tech' to help do their 'dirty work'.
What is the legal underpinnings of this concept. Is it illegal ? unconstitutional ?

Likewise, on the flip side .. we have had Mark Zuckerberg spread his ZuckerBucks during the election to buy ?? no one seems to know. We've also had Mike Bloomberg buying State's Attorney General's offices by sending money to cover activities (i.e. gun control, etc) that he would like them to investigate.

I see a great danger in the public/private partnerships that have no transparency.


Yikes! MT.


Well, that's an inconvenient add to the narrative.


Georgia audit documents expose significant election failures in state's largest county

Records suggest more than 100 batches of absentee ballots in Fulton County could be missing. Some experts see "election tabulation malpractice" as state officials seek to remove county's top election supervisors.

Documents that Georgia's largest county submitted to state officials as part of a post-election audit highlight significant irregularities in the Atlanta area during last November's voting, ranging from identical vote tallies repeated multiple times to large batches of absentee ballots that appear to be missing from the official ballot-scanning records.

The problems in predominantly Democratic Fulton County potentially impact thousands of ballots in a presidential race that Joe Biden was certified as winning statewide by fewer than 12,000 votes.

I'm not inclined to elaborate conspiracy theories. Simper explanations often prove right. So, my take is the reason so many officials don't want to explore US funding for Wuhan is that it makes a lot of the bureaucracy look evil or at least incompetent and opens the floodgates on questions of using cut outs to fund things Congress could never approve.

I don't think the CCP can be certain of this. In case you didn't know TC, in the 70s Taiwan developed a nuke program right up to the point of being able to build a bomb but did not do so. At US insistence they officially abandoned the program. But they unofficially continued it and it was only the placement of a US spook that revealed the secret research program they continued that rendered it an open secret.
The lesson they learned was either to not have secret programs or they learned to be better at it. Either way, not a small risk in assuming they don't.
No doubt the CCP has plenty of spies in Taiwan but spies are pretty good at telling you what they know but not at telling you what they don't.

Ain't that the coincidence!

Herschel Fink, the director of the AZ Democrat Party, says Stacey Abrams helped the Dems “win” in Arizona.

Daughter took me to the clinic and they sent me to ER due to low oxygen. So I am waiting on chest x-ray and I think they are going to give me an inhaler. Bonus: I will save money not smoking. 😄



Wouldn’t Stacy be guilty pf interfering in a federal election? That. AZ AG needs to have her arrested !


Sorry to hear that miss marple hope you're feeling better

I was told ron was focusimg on ufos


Miss M, one grandmother ended up with emphysema. Tied to an oxygen tank. Ride out the nicotine withdrawal and don’t resume smoking. You will thank yourself.


Get some Habitrol gum MM. it will stop the cravings.

Thanks for the tip. I actually dont have cravings now. When you start coughing every time you put one in your mouth, its pretty easy to ski ligjting up. 😄

Waiting for x-ray results. Hope I can leave then.

matt - deplore me if you must

Listening to the two dolts announcing the Juneteenth holiday was traumatic. Joe's son is a one man racism machine as Joe lectures the 99% of the country who are not racist while Kamala has perhaps the worst public speaking abilities of anyone ever elected to Congress.

Senator Turdley from the great state of MasterCard and his sidekick, the Senator most likely to be duct taped after 30 seconds.




Watch this parent absolutely obliterate Critical Race Theory at an Illinois school board meeting:

“How do I have two medical degrees if I’m sitting here oppressed?”



Crap. I have to stay overnight.


Matt, just tell everyone you love declaring the day Republicans freed the slaves a National Holiday.


Interesting. The Covid bill prohibited tax cuts. (And Evers will veto anyway).


GOP is proposing a $3.4 billion tax cut, which comes out to $1,200 in savings per typical family, $900 income tax relief per typical family, $300 property tax relief for typical home, and $200 mil tax relief for to main street.



How Soviet.


A federal judge wants every attorney whose name was on court filings seeking to overturn Michigan's presidential election results in the "Kraken" suit there to show up for a sanctions hearing on July 6.



CRT is so blatant that I wonder what the ratbags are trying to sneak in while all eyes are on CRT?


Henry. That Twitter account has some weird responses.


Hope it goes ok, MM.

Mel Jocelyn the clown was snarking. She's a Wellesly and Harvad tool.


Clarice: questions of using cut outs to fund things Congress could never approve.

Should Congress or an inspector general discover that such a cut-out was used, the appropriate response would be to excise the offending department from government. Fired. No benefits. No replacement.

Letting it remain leaves in place too dangerous a construct.

Well its not up to scale.



Imo y’all should stop attacking @McAdooGordon. Whether she is ultimately proven right, her argument for why un-indicted co-conspirators is unlikely to be the proof of the “led by the Feds” theory is actually strong. And he career gives her an awareness of how the system works.

I think they should ban shorts and reward massive frauds.


So it was solyndra on wheels. They should give the guy a medal.


And maybe gm should do some forensic accounting when it commits that much money to a project like this although when the ceo resigns more than two years ago


So, the admitting doc came and told me I might end up staying 5-6 days. I have to get my O2 level up consistently and my heartbeat is a bit irregular.

I have crap TV and will be-no longer a smoker. I giess I don’t get to have any vices anymore.

I cant say i admire volodya but i understamd him to a degree and have a certain level of respect. Most who analyse him like fiona hill dont understand him or his country.


MM, you were mentioned at my new home and I wanted to let you know that I am praying for you. I hope everything turns out well.

For what it is worth, when I had breathing troubles due to covid, I adopted the breathing exercises that Amom had posted earlier that year. The most important thing was to avoid laying on your back as that closes down the airways and allows pneumonia to set in. The doctors were very pleased with me that I had knowledge of this and was diligent in doing it. They will bring you extra pillows to make it more comfortable.

I have no idea if this is a technique for all, most, or only some lung issues. I certainly hope it helps you.

Love you, MM.


Going over to Twitter to see what’s going on.
