Trump: Let's Debate the Wall in Public, Now
Pelosi and Schumer: No Let's Hide the Debate and Stage-Manage It
Leftwing Media and Cucks: This is Terrible, Why Won't Trump Agree to Stage-Manage the Democratic Process?

—Ace of Spades

Worth the watch.

The leftwing media and their cuck cocktail party plus ones are beside themselves over this.

Doesn't Trump know that Democracy is supposed to be stage-managed? How can you have a successful Failure Theater production without a script?



You can't know how ebola is really transmitted because that might cause a lack of confidence in the NIH.

You can't know how the FISA was obtained because that might cause a lack of confidence in the IC and FBI.

The people need to be Made Confident in their betters or else the whole system falls apart!!!!

Guys -- our Betters really cannot bear too much direct scrutiny. If the Deplorables and the Garbage People see the low quality of the alleged Betters we might have a Yellow Jackets situation on our hands.

LOL: The Oscars Academy Is "Considering" Having No Host at All

—Ace of Spades

They're probably "considering" this because, due to #WokeStasi political purges, No one in their g****** right mind would put himself through the Struggle Session Gauntlet of just going on TV and telling terrible, terrible jokes.

This will be a spectacular televised demonstration of The Great Disappearing -- an Oscars with no host, because they #Purged the last one and no further volunteers for the bloody altar of Political Correctness are volunteering.

I'd love it.

And we'd have an Oscars with no audience and no host.

Kevin Hart's abrupt departure as Oscars host has left the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences scrambling to find someone to take the gig. As of now, the situation remains fluid as the group's leadership explores options, including going host-less, individuals familiar with the situation told Variety.

The Academy was blindsided by Hart's announced departure Thursday night, according to two insiders. The Board of Governors will convene on Tuesday night at a previously-scheduled meeting where the matter will inevitably be discussed.

"They're freaking out," said a top comedy agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity. There were no contingency plans in place by the Academy or broadcaster ABC, according to another insider. The show's producers are back to square one.

Late night hosts might seem an obvious choice, given their national profiles and history with the show (think Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Stewart and David Letterman). But the Academy is now said to be gun shy about going with someone anyone who might be too edgy, noted an industry source. Then again, going too safe could be fatal for the show’s record-low ratings -- the telecast was watched by 25.6 million people in March, a 19 percent drop from the previous year.

Another option being tossed around is not having any host at all, but rather "a bunch of huge celebs, something 'SNL' style, and buzzy people" to keep the show moving, the insiders said. A stunt like a group monologue was floated, one source added.

Yes, let's see a group of people we can hang from the fucking lampposts for our Ritual Mortification Amusement.

I like Kevin Hart. I don't love him, but I like him.

But if this guy winds up putting The Great Disappearing on live TV, because he dared to do three things --

1, saying "Fuck you, I'm not apologizing again, I didn't even mean the first fucking apology you made me make and I'm a lot richer now than I was then so go fuck yourself" and then

2, saying, "You know what? I just called my accountant and he says I'm richer than I thought I was. So I don't need to do the fucking Oscars. Go fuck yourselves and good luck getting a host ready by showtime" and then

3, not saying "Nah it's cool, we're fine" when other black people start accusing the #OscarsSoWhite of racism--

then I think I will love him.

They set the fires. Let the motherfuckers burn.

Verses 2 through 5: From Victor29.

2 And I saw a strong Tweeter proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the envelope, and to loose the seals thereof?

3 And no man in hollywood, nor in the comedy circuit, was able to open the envelope, neither to look thereon.

4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the envelope, neither to look thereon.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition



When Rick Perry spoke of his desire to make the Federal government a much less important part of Americans' lives, this is exactly the stuff he was thinking about. The French government chose to degrade the quality of life of its average citizens to such an extent that the apolitical...the quiet and politically disinterested...were moved to demonstrate and march and riot to be be heard. Crushing the working class with onerous, politically-driven taxes is just the tip of the iceberg in France. That the people have risen to protest is a testament to their lack of choice, and even worse, their despair.

Professional protesters chanting their canned pap is one thing, but when the people -- the real people -- feel strongly enough about something to uproot themselves and act, then we all must pay attention.

Riots in Paris: The police underestimated the madness of the crowd.

They couldn’t have seemed less disposed to violence, nor more apolitical. They were respectful of the police, and vice-versa. As cops drove by, relaxed, the Gilets Jaunes smiled at them, like kids excited about their first trip to the big city, waved at the officers, and gave them the thumbs-up. The cops reciprocated. The sentiment was fraternal. “We’re all weary, overtaxed working men,” they were saying to each other. “We’re on the same side.”

I concluded they were just what they were advertised to be: family men and women who couldn’t make ends meet and who were tired of Macron’s attitude. Why this protest, why now, I asked? The fuel tax was just the straw that broke the camel’s back, they said; it made the difference between “able to make ends meet, barely,” and “not able to make ends meet.” It had just been getting steadily worse every year since the economic crisis began. They had run out of hope.

France is a strange place, with strange political traditions, some of which are quite passive and conciliatory (Vichy anyone?), and some of which are quite violent (Jacobins anyone?). I am trying to draw parallels with the United States, and while some of the feelings are similar, we simply don't have enough in common for any significant similarities.

That is not to say we can't respond to government intrusion...I just don't think we would do it the way the French are acting. I wonder how America would respond if a Democrat administration crushed the middle and working class with similar taxes? Would we riot? No, I think not, but we would punish them at the polls.

So what is the proverbial American straw?

The Morning Report - 12/11/18

—J.J. Sefton


Good morning kids. Lots of things jumping this Tuesday so here we go. As the year draws to a close and the Democrats are set to take over the House in the coming weeks (feh), there seems to be this sense of the President stalling, committing unforced errors, going overboard with Twitter etc. etc. and a concomitant perception that he's losing the one and only thing that he can't: the support of the base. Anecdotally, I've read commenters here as well as elsewhere and callers into the national talk shows getting all wobbly and eeyorish and I can understand the temptation. The border wall is unfunded, we were stabbed in the face by the GOP-e with the Obamacare repeal fiasco, Planned Parenthood remains essentially fully funded courtesy of the same GOP-e that should have cut them off as well as pushed for a balanced budget and fiscal responsibility with no more continuing resolutions during the two years it controlled the purse strings. But no.

And now Mueller is set to release his "findings" which will find not a shred of evidence to even hint that the President conspired/colluded with the Russians to steal the 2016 election, but which will no doubt smear him as borderline crooked, incompetent and sleazy which is all the Democrat-Media Complex will need to move ahead with impeachment. Circling back to our own media, when Tucker Carlson and other staunch supporters starts to get all wobbly on Trump, it's no doubt that many of us will start having our own doubts about things. And this is exactly what the Left wants with all of this crap; to sew the seeds of doubt in your mind so that the President loses the kevlar/teflon coating of high 40s to low 50s approval numbers and drive it down to a level that makes it politically acceptable for Republicans in the House to join the Dems and call for his impeachment and even resignation.

STOP RIGHT THERE. Whatever failures there were in the implementation of the key agenda items, the fault lies with the GOP leadership and NeverTrumper underlings in Congress and elsewhere that did all they could to sabotage him with every bit as much zeal as those on the Left. And when you consider what has been happening both at the border, in the economy, in foreign policy, and in completely exposing the frauds and hacks in the media and showing those on our side in Congress who are willing to listen how to fight back and win, the first two years of this Presidency have been wildly successful. And much of it was achieved almost entirely singlehanded by this President. Now more than ever, he needs and deserves our support.

And this leads us to the news links and to immigration and amnesty where, in spite of everything the President has done - or perhaps out of desperation because of everything he has done - illegal immigration has spiked to the highest number in a decade. Meanwhile, the Left is freaking out over the President's insistence on a no freeloader rule for those seeking citizenship legally. Also, echoing my sentiments at the outset Lindsey the Graham-inator is encouraging the President to not give in on border wall funding, an honest judge actually ruled in favor of Trump ending an Obama asylum program, the invasion caravan is looking like it's failed and is petering out, and a would-be invader displayed the Pelosi spark of humanity by dumping her toddler here and vamoosing south.

To the Democrat corruption files or embargoed news items from the Agitprop Media, lawyers are desperate to seal all documents related to the FBI raid on the Clinton Crime Family Foundation whistleblower, thousands of Chicagoans commit voter fraud at the behest of the Democrat ward healers to keep an insurgent reformer off the ballot (guess the party), and Lacy Clay is a goniffing momzer of the first order, paying his sister a cool $200-Gs from campaign funds. But, but, but Stormy Daniels!!!!

And speaking of which, as impeachment talk ramps up, in Mueller witch hunt news, James Comey continues to put his foot in his mouth, seemingly with no repercussions at all, the Michael Cohen plea deals is blood in the water to the insurrectionists and Rand Paul with a friendly reminder about the true nature of special prosecutors.

In politics in general, the big news is who will Trump pick to replace outgoing chief of staff John Kelly? A dark horse yet a welcome name is that of conservative stalwart Mark Meadows. A couple of good essays analyzing the situation as well as putting it in context to my opening paragraph. Elsewhere, the DNC is ordering the staff to be completely impartial for the 2020 primary (comedy gold), perhaps Nancy Palsi isn't the shoe-in for Speaker as Andrew Cui-Bono is putting the screws to a recalcitrant Congresscritter on Long Island, with all the bullshit about Trump politicizing the new AG pick, lest we forget who ran the DoJ under Obama, how to fight back the Dems' dirty pool and a good piece using Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco's fascistic reaction to being criticized as an indicator of fascistic proclivities of the Left.

To First Amendment and Fake News Fakery, a yuuuge victory for James O'Keefe/Project Veritas and the first amendment, Google stands accused of attempting to sabotage Breitbart's ad revenue while at the same time helping Pakistani head-choppers and clit-clippers keeeeel you, the aforementioned Media Trump derangement is really deranged and did you hear about the Neo-Nazi jailed for threatening Jews who is likely a Leftist? Me neither... as intended.

On the international scene, Theresa May's career hangs in the balance after totally cocking up Brexit, to the extent that she had to cancel a vote on the issue because the legislation is a hot mess that leaves Brussels in control of the process. And there was a wild scene in Parliament debating the issue. Across the Channel, several good analyses of the rioting in France and Macron's apparent surrender. Is it about Global Warming, Socialist Failure, Taxation or all of the above? See the links and discuss amongst yourselves. Elsewhere, the administration is taking a tough line on Iran, Michael Ledeen on Iran at war, the Euro-peons enabling the Farsis to get nuked up, Jared Kushner is a boob for falling into the peace process process crime, and the administration calls out several top NorKs including Whoa, Fat's! #2.

Over to the wonderful world of Islam where the Feds charge an Ohio man for planning an ISIS-style synagogue slaughter, CAIR loves David Duke and will the Feds be charging the New Mexico compound jihadists with terrorism? Stay tuned...

Domestically, Chief Justice John Julia Crockovich Roberts teamed up with Brett Kavanaugh in rejecting two cases that would have stopped federal funding to Planned Parenthood, to which the conservative justices reacted with a strong rebuke to the duo. We know Roberts is the new Kennedy. Let's hope this is a one-off for Kavanaugh. Then again, Terry Jeffrey reminds us that Kavanaugh ruled that it was totes kosher for an illegal caught at the border to get an abortion in the US.

Elsewhere, some very good economic news about food stamp usage (down), factory job openings (up), and Trump perhaps holding the upper hand for ratification of the USMCA. I thought this was a done thing. Oh well. In health news, big CPAP is listening, and euthanasia pimps pimp starvation for the terminally ill.

In Indoctrination Inc., Massachusetts schools lead the way - mostly in Jew-baiting, teachers withhold grades to protest Confederate monuments, and students demand "safe spaces" before allowing comedians to come take the stage. No, they're not afraid of their words, per se. They're afraid that their words will ring true and thus challenge their rule.

In FemiNazism, the first time two of the top "Women's March" leaders met they had an anti-semitic Joo-hate fest that was so hideous, evidently it was covered up until now. Shocking, right? And from hither and yon, Francis the Talking Pope is changing the lyrics to "The Lord's Prayer," the Baby It's Cold Outside madness, an interesting take on the welfare state through the lens of life in Mumbai and lastly, a lengthy piece from our friends at City Journal about the ills of modern life, government and control. Quite good.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"There is no better or more appropriate veteran to name the Manhattan VA after than Margaret Corbin," Kristen Rouse

Quote II

To the extent that PETA does any of these things, it does none of them well, opting for only the most ham-fisted Banksy-type shit in an attempt to shame individual people into becoming vegans. And this strategy hasn’t just failed—it’s made a mockery of the animal rights movement at a time when strong, well-organized advocacy could do a lot of good for everyone, regardless of whether they choose to eat meat or not.

Fix your shit, PETA, or fuck off. Paul Blest

Ahh, the left "eating" the left.

Quote III

Today’s Mrs. Grundys — let’s call them Mx. Grundys to be up to the moment — are progressive bullies intent on shutting everyone the hell up lest anyone fail to conform to their narrow sense of what is and is not acceptable. The humorless scolds have decided they are in charge, and for complicated reasons the rest of the culture is going along.

Married "Transgender Men" Will Not Impose a Gender on Their Child Until "It" Tells Them What It Is

—Ace of Spades

This is child abuse.

Transgenders are less than one tenth of one percent of the population.

But they're raising a child, who is 99.9% likely to have a conventional gender, as if it were a transgender.

These are the same sort of people who scream that it's monstrous to make gay kids "act straight" or pretend to be straight.

Is it better to take a normal-gender kid and put it through a transgender childhood to see if it takes or not?

Don't tell me the answer; of course the answer is "yes, it's so much better."

Victor Davis Hanson: In Order to Justify His Deviation from the Law, Robert Mueller Has Also Embraced Unequal Justice

—Ace of Spades

Mueller probably knew there was no "collusion" from early days, but, to justify his mandate and appease the leftwing media culture which is demanding he reverse the 2016 election, he has gone after a series of process crimes, crimes that did not precede the investigation, but occurred during the investigation -- claiming Flynn "lied" to investigators, for example. (Despite the fact that the investigators Flynn "lied" to say he didn't lie at all.)

Mueller has gone after peripheral figure racking up pleas for process crimes not associated even remotely with his actual ambit, which is Russian collusion.

Well then, Victor Davis Hanson asks -- if you've gone beyond your brief to prosecute peripheral process crimes, why are you ignoring a rather large number of crimes committed by Hillary's Minions to set this all up?

Mueller has already weaponized politics, making a crime out of the tawdry business of opposition research -- but only sort of, since his interests in doing so are highly selective. And so his chief legacy will have little to do with whatever he finds on Donald Trump. He has already established the precedent that there is now no real equality under the law, at least as Americans once understood fair play and blind justice.

Once Mueller deviated from his prime directive of determining whether Donald Trump colluded -- sought help from the Russian to win the 2016 election in exchange for the promise of later benefits -- and turned to indicting political operatives for supposedly giving false testimonies about political shenanigans and engaging in illegal business practices, lobbying, and tax avoidance, he either knowingly or unknowingly established a precedent that the serial misdeeds of 2016 would be treated unequally under the law.

Yet Christopher Steele, a British subject and de facto unregistered foreign agent, is eminently indictable and extraditable. He was paid through two firewalls (Fusion GPS and Perkins Coie) by Hillary Clinton to tap Russian sources to compile a smear dossier on her opponent, with the intent of warping the U.S. election -- a classic example of foreign-agent interference in an American campaign. If we were to take away that one purchased document, then the FISA court warrants, the informants, and all the CIA, FBI, and DOJ machinations would likely have disappeared or never arisen.

Obama-administration officials Bruce Ohr (whose wife worked on the dossier) at Justice, James Comey at the FBI, and John Brennan at the CIA all in some manner colluded with Steele, either directly or indirectly, to monitor the Trump campaign and then to seed the dossier among government agencies and courts, both to ensure its leakage and to brand it with a stamp of official seriousness, warranting investigations and media sensationalism.


Bruce Ohr filed a false federal disclosure affidavit, in that he did not reveal, as required, that his wife was employed by Fusion GPS to work on the Steele dossier. Nor did he disclose that after the election he had been in contact with Steele, offering his help in the effort to find proof of collusion.

James Comey, along with Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, and Sally Yates, at various times submitted requests to a FISA court that deliberately never disclosed that their chief evidence for such surveillance was 1) paid for by Hillary Clinton (instead, the applications claimed vaguely that it was a product of generic opposition research, likely and by design confusing its Republican-primary origins with its maturity under Clinton auspices), 2) used as a circular source for news accounts produced in turn to establish its fides, 3) unsubstantiated and either not fact-checked or found to be impossible to verify, 4) compiled by an author already dismissed by the FBI as a unreliable asset.

Either Andrew McCabe or James Comey has likely perjured himself; or both may have. Their conflicting testimonies about leaking information to the media, and the relative importance of the Steele dossier for FISA court warrants, cannot be reconciled.

And so on.

Read the whole thing. Jonah Goldberg won't, so maybe cook up a juicy Hot Twitter Headline for him, would you?

Families of Hostages Held by Iran: "We Will Remain Quiet No Longer"

—Ace of Spades

Weird, I keep hearing about this Jamal Kashoggi fellow but I never heard much about the Americans still held hostage by Iran when Obama was delivering them $150 billion.

I'm sure there are reasons for that.

Families of hostages held by Iran, including Americans, declared in an open letter this week to world leaders, media outlets and human-rights organizations that they "shall remain quiet no longer."

"We come from many countries, with different backgrounds and different perspectives, but we have banded together now to come to you as one voice," they wrote, noting that in September, on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, "several of our families gathered together for the first time to share stories and struggles about getting our loved ones released."

"We met again a few weeks ago, this time to share our testimonies with the UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Iran," they added. "The similarities between our loved ones’ cases is striking. Each story is not just a case of arbitrary detention, but deliberate and tactical moves by the Iranian authorities to secure bargaining chips."

The coalition includes the family of hostage Baquer Namazi, 82, who was arrested in Tehran in February 2016 after trying to secure the release of his son, Siamak Namazi, a U.S. citizen and businessman who was arrested in October 2015 while visiting a friend in Tehran.

Read the whole thing and then ask yourself why the media only seems to care about the information op being run on us by the Turkey-Iran-Qatar access.

It might have something to do with the media relying on the liberal Brookings Institution to tell them what foreign news is important and worth covering, and which isn't.

And it might have to do with Qatar paying huge money to the Brookings Institution.

From Wikipedia:

An investigation by The New York Times, reported on September 6, 2014, found the Brookings Institution to be among more than a dozen Washington research groups to have received payments from foreign governments while encouraging U.S. officials to encourage support for policies aligned with those foreign governments' agenda.[108]

The New York Times published documents showing that Brookings Institution accepted grants from Norway with specific policy requests and helped the country gain access to U.S. government officials, as well as other "deliverables".[109][110] In June 2014, Norway agreed to make an additional $4 million donation to Brookings.[108] Several legal specialists who examined the documents told the paper that the language of the transactions "appeared to necessitate Brookings filing as a foreign agent" under the Foreign Agent Registration Act.[110]

The Qatari government was named by The New York Times as "the single biggest foreign donor to Brookings", having reportedly made a $14.8 million, four-year contribution in 2013. A former visiting fellow at a Brookings affiliate in Qatar reportedly said that "he had been told during his job interview that he could not take positions critical of the Qatar government in papers".[108] Brookings officials denied any connection between the views of their funders and their scholars' work, citing reports that questioned the Qatari government's education reform efforts and criticized its support of militants in Syria. However, Brookings officials reportedly acknowledged that they meet with Qatari government officials regularly.[108]

Of course, Brookings is just one of Qatar's smaller investments.

Environmental Sissies Celebrate: Yay! Shipping Giant Maersk Says It Will End Its Use of Fossil Fuels by... Um... 2050

—Ace of Spades

See this limp sap squeeing about it.

Here's the article, but I'm sure you can already predict the future: Maersk collects up Coupons for Free Hugs from enviromental sissies for 30 years, then, in 2048, writes its first press release stating that "Man, this vow to stop fueling our ships with, you know, fuel, we might have gotten a bit ahead of ourselves with that," then in 2049 writes another press release stating "Where the fuck are the fusion reactors? We were told we would have fusion reactors by now. It's those pointy-headed limp-dicked scientists' fault, not ours!"

Then, in 2050, they write: "We intend to be fossil fuel free by the year 2090."

And the sissies start squeeing again.

Anyway, here's part of the article:

Maersk's target, although distant, is one of the most ambitious from a global industrial group promising to end carbon emissions altogether.

Newsflash: It's not ambitious to promise a thousand hamburgers on a Tuesday 32 years off.

The further off the completion date of the promise, the less ambitious it is.

I vow that I personally will use only renewable, clean fuels by 2050 myself.

Caveat: 1, I'll probably be dead, and will be providing fuel rather than using it, and 2, pretty much my promise relies on fusion being perfected.

In other words: I have the same plan as Global Warming Hero Maersk.


Maersk is not pushing one technology -- ideas such as biofuels, hydrogen, electricity or even wind or solar power have been mooted -- but is stressing the urgency as most vessels have a life of 20-25 years, meaning that viable solutions need to be found soon.

In other words: We're waiting for someone else to fix this for us.

Which is weird, because that's my plan.

"To reach the target by 2050, in the next 10 years we need some big breakthroughs," Mr Toft said. 

Soooo... Fusion then?

We read each other so well, Maersk. It's like fusion-powered kismet.

The Telegraph: This Christmas, Why Not Give Your Wife the Gift of Cuckery?

—Ace of Spades

I just got an email from Max Boot: "THIS +1000."

When I told my husband I was interviewing a writer who thinks men should give their wives a 'cheat pass' this Christmas, he understandably had some questions. "How would the wife find someone suitable for the occasion?" he wondered.

I think by asking "How would the wife find someone suitable for the occasion?" he just gave her, implicitly, a cheat pass, for being such a homo.

(We were talking in the abstract, of course...

Of course you were, darling.

...and I deemed it safer to treat this as rhetorical.)

Safer to treat it as rhetorical. Which implies it could be treated another way.

I assured him that yes, it was all very unfeasible, and concluded he'll more likely gift me jewellery.

In other words, it's feasible.

But Wednesday Martin, whose latest book Untrue explores "why nearly everything we believe about women and lust and infidelity" is wrong, is not being flippant. "We now know long-term relationships are harder on female desire than they are on male desire," she says.

Wednesday Martin is the freak who just called for women to go on a "sex strike" unless Democrats won the midterms.

She also argues that it's not men who crave sexual novelty, but women:

They have learned that the overfamiliarity with a spouse and the institutionalization of the relationship that accompany companionate domesticity actually dampen female desire in ways they don't male desire -- suggesting long-term, monogamous relationships may actually be harder for women than for men. Anthropologist Meredith Small has noted that the single most documented preference across species of female primates is ... a taste for sexual novelty. Canadian researchers found that straight women's bodies respond to a greater range of sexual stimuli than heterosexual men's, calling into question the easy presumption that it is men who have wide and varied sexual menus. Other research and experts like Esther Perel tell us of female study participants and patients who find the security and comfort of their marriages -- the very things we are taught women crave -- to be anaphrodisiacs that blunt their lust.

It is women, not just men, and women perhaps even more than men, who pine for sexual adventure. Without it, many of us find our libidos wither. And then we may resign ourselves to serving what we think others deserve, rather than feeling entitled to get ours and get off.

Crazy in the head, also crazy in print

Nonpartisan Unbiased Lifelong Republican Reverend Jim Comey: We Have Use "Every Breath We Have" To Push Trump Out of Office

—Ace of Spades

There are only two ways to explain this:

Either he was already incredibly biased against Trump at the start of of his "investigation" and therefore should have recused himself, or started unbiased but became outraged, radicalized, and insane because Trump decided he wasn't doing a good job and fired him.

Neither is very reassuring about this "investigation," the FBI, or the permanent Derp State of bureaucratic Washington.

Former FBI Director James Comey asked American voters Sunday night to end Donald Trump's presidency with a "landslide" victory for his opponent in 2020.

"All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021," Comey told an audience at the 92nd Street Y on New York City's Upper East Side. He all but begged Democrats to set aside their ideological differences and nominate the person best suited to defeating Trump in an election.

"I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be," Comey told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, "but they have to win. They have to win."


"Leakin' James Comey must have set a record for who lied the most to Congress in one day. His Friday testimony was so untruthful!," Trump wrote, adding in a second post: "On 245 occasions, former FBI Director James Comey told House investigators he didn't know, didn't recall, or couldn't remember things when asked."

Comey laughed at the idea Trump had even looked over the actual testimony, joking to Wallace before she could read the tweets, "He's finished reading the 253 pages?"
After hearing the words out loud, he turned serious.

"My reaction to it is actually disturbing to me, which is kind of, 'Eh, there he goes again.' I thought I was 'Lyin' James Comey' now I'm 'Leakin' James Comey'. But I kind of shrug and sometimes smile and laugh about it and then I have a secondary reaction, which is to be horrified at my own numb reaction," Comey said. "We have to remind ourselves the President of the United States of America is publicly announcing that people are committing crimes, that they should be in jail."

Comey used the power of the state to put Trump in jail just because he wanted Hillary Clinton to be president, but it's dangerous for Trump to tweet at him.

And note that CNN claims that Trump is claiming without evidence -- the media's new favorite phrase -- that Comey is not telling the truth when he claims so much failure of memory. But as the next article points out, there is evidence of this -- at least of Comey claiming a suspicious amount of early-onset dementia.

On Friday, Comey admitted to congresssional questioners that he never even bothered to verify the claims made in the "dossier" he used to secure a FISA against Trump and people in his orbit, and made the further astonishing claim that he doesn't think it's his job to do so.

Republican lawmakers were aghast at his sudden lack of recollection of key events.

He didn't seem to know that his own FBI was using No. 4 Justice Department official Bruce Ohr as a conduit to keep collecting intelligence from Christopher Steele after the British intel operative was fired by the bureau for leaking and lying. In fact, Comey didn't seem to remember knowing that Steele had been terminated, according to sources in the room.

"His memory was so bad I feared he might not remember how to get out of the room after the interview," one lawmaker quipped. Lamented another: "It was like he suddenly developed dementia or Alzheimer's, after conveniently remembering enough facts to sell his book."

Faintness of memory is a common symptom for witnesses under the intense spotlight. But lawmakers were relieved when Comey could remember one fact that is essential to understanding if his FBI acted appropriately in the investigation of Donald Trump and Russia.

The towering ex-FBI boss confessed that the FBI had not corroborated much of the Steele dossier before it was submitted as evidence to a secret court to support a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the final weeks of the election.

And Comey admitted much of the dossier remained uncorroborated more than six months later when he was fired by President Trump.


Comey now has confirmed what Republican lawmakers like Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have warned about for months -- that the FBI used an unverified dossier, paid for by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party as political opposition research, to justify spying on the duly nominated GOP candidate for president just weeks before Election Day.

John Solomon's whole article is good.

Note that the media uses the phrase "without evidence" to describe the statements of Republicans who are first-hand witnesses to events. In other words: They don't count.

The Morning Rant


talking ape.jpg
"I'm watching the 6-part documentary 'The Clinton Affair' on A&E, and you know what chaps my buns? They write off the exposure of the Clintons' crimes as just smear campaigns by political operatives such as 'The American Spectator' magazine, and Rush Limbaugh. But then they need to show someone who tells us these things, who sort of tells us the way things really are, a straight-shooter whom the audience can trust, and do you know who they pick? David Effing Brock. They don't bother to mention Media Matters or American Bridge 21st Century or any of the other organizations Brock has put together to smear conservatives, boost Hillary Clinton. The audience is never told any of these things, and one of the most rabidly partisan attack dogs in national politics is presented as a more or less neutral, unbiased observer. Oh, and attack politics was completely unknown in Washington until it was invented by Newt Gingrich. I'll bet you morons didn't know that, either. But 'The Clinton Affair' isn't all bad, it does do a pretty good job showing how Bill Clinton was such a complete sleazebag. Unlike Trump's past sexual adventures, Bill was carrying his on while he was on the job, as President, in a little room adjacent to the Oval Office. One of his secretaries obviously knew what was going on and ran interference for him. And some of the women who are now hollering '#MeToo' were among his most ardent defenders. So when Trump's critics bring up Stormy Daniels, they only response they deserve is a loud, braying horse laugh."

The Morning Report - 12/10/18

—J.J. Sefton


Good morning kids. Monday again and we have lots of linkages so here we go. The Mueller witch hunt and ongoing soft-ish coup against President Trump and We The People (E-Pleb-Neesta for any Yangs or Komes out there) takes the top slot for the first time in quite a while as the long-anticipated report from Torque-your-mudder Mueller is expected to be released. There will naturally be absolutely nothing of any substance or even remotely resembling this thing we call "the truth" insofar as the claims that the President conspired, collaborated, colluded or in any other way stole the 2016 election with the aid and assistance of Vladimir Putin. With regards to James Comey, the apple-robbing crooked cop who willingly allowed himself and the FBI to be used as a weapon to try and sabotage candidate and then President Trump, Daniel Sobieski over at American Thinker says it best: "Comey lied." His full essay on the subject is worthy of your time as is the usual outing from Victor Davis Hanson who unpacks the whole horrid thing. But the Democrats sure as night follows day will not allow a minor detail like the truth get in the way of using this mountain of nothingness to attempt to impeach the President once they officially preside over the House come late January. More on that later.

To the immigration and amnesty front we go where although things have seemingly quieted down on our southern border vis a vis the bought-and-paid for swarm of invading Central American peasantry intent on invading our country and claiming their right to citizenship (and our wallets), we have a Mexican national sentenced to 8 years for helping Bob Menendez with his love life, the US is adamantly opposed to the UN's effort to destroy our and the west's national sovereignty, more on that hack-in-black and thug DA who shielded an illegal alien criminal from ICE, and Humberto Fontova on the real refugees fleeing real tyranny that the media is strangely silent about.

To politics we go where the Sacramento Bee is having none of Kamala "Toe" Harris' Sergeant Schultz defense of her top aide's sexual harassment suit, John Kelly is set to ankle as chief of staff and Luap the Lesser is not happy with Trump's choice of Bob William Barr to replace him, Jerry Nadler, who wouldn't float if he was tied to the Hindenburg is seriously floating the idea of impeachment while, of all people, Maine Senator Angus King is warning of the implications if the Dems pull the trigger (which no doubt they will), Pew Research has an enlightening poll showing what happened after 8 years of Obama and SJW madness, Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco is mum about her support of Joo-haters, Schemer and Palsi are playing hardball over a potential government shutdown while the lame duck GOP is fighting hard to waste even more taxpayer dollars and line their pockets before time runs out, a look at the 2020 field from the Never-Trumper perspective, Tucker Carlson is wrong about blaming the President for the lack of a wall and Obamacare repeal, New York's lawmakers stink on ice and a very interesting case out of Massachusetts could have big implications if/when it reaches SCOTUS.

In First Amendment and Fake News Fakery news, the Media are total hypocrites when it comes to Heather Nauert's nomination to be UN Ambassador, Daniel Greenfield unpacks what the Leftist antipathy to Facebook is really all about, Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco lets her inner tyrant flag fly in response to Trump Jr., and more on that New York scheme to take away guns for wrong-think.

And segueing perfectly into the 2-A category, now that Jersey has effectively banned 10-round magazines, how are they going to enforce that law? And pint-sized putrid pre-pubescent punk Little Shitler Camera Hogg blasts Rubio and the Word of G-d, as well as a look at deconstructing the anti-gun cult.

At the foreign desk, I love Paris when it sizzles and evidently so does Belgium and the Netherlands, Canadians might torch Ottawa if Justin Trudeau pulls a carbon tax in Canuckistan, several essays on this Huawei incident including speculation from Spengler that the Deep State had the CFO arrested in order to torpedo Trump's trade deal with the Chi-Coms. Meanwhile, Deutchers go uber ballistic for guns, while Putin continues to make maneuvers around the globe including sending nuclear capable bombers to Venezuela to bolster Maduro, which also no doubt sends a message to Trump vis a vis Ukraine and the US Navy's maneuvering through disputed waters off of Japan. In related national defense category, the President taps General Mark Milley to head the JCoS and General McChrystal is putzing around in Afghanistan which begs the question, what the fuck are we doing there? And in the wake of the UN not condemning Hamas, the dark age pedophiles/bestiality enthusiasts celebrated by shooting up a pregnant Israeli woman. Meanwhile, an Irish professor in Paris had a little bit of an oopsie; he showed a drawing of Mohammed in his class and was stabbed to death.

Back over here, the US murder rate is taking a dive, a private prison operator in Illinois is pissing off the right/wrong people by actually reducing recidivism, a case involving the recouping of forced union dues is heading to SCOTUS, two essays on the US oil boom (thanks Obama, NOT), break up the Fed before they break us up, and a really interesting piece on Ron Wyden's wife getting mugged by reality here in the rotten apple. Also, a look at the fantasy of "free" healthcare, more on the Church sex abuse scandal, a Virginia high school teacher is fired for refusing to knuckle under to the transgender madness, and a good companion piece on the utter shambles (as intended by the Left) of American education.

In Red-Green enviro-Communism news, sea level rising is a hoax, Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco's plan to fight so-called "climate change" is an impossible and impossibly expensive shit-show, and California will now mandate expensive solar panels on all new houses. Hmm, what if I started a company to sell fake-but-accurate looking solar panels to the trade? Charge full price and give a 97% rebate - winning!

From hither and yon, two pieces on the Twitter shaming of Kevin Hart and the guy who just won the Heisman Trophy, the Left wants us to knuckle under and crawl and a look back at Alexander Solzhenitsyn on the centennial of his birth. Amazing how his words ring true today and serve as a warning to us. Hope we heed them.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

Food Thread: Set Aside Your Childish Ways And Come To The Savory Side (It's In The Bible!)



Why...yes! That is a stuffing waffle. And a damned good one too. As I may have related to you a few weeks ago, I made a lot of stuffing. Maybe three times what we needed, so I froze a lot and made this waffle with a bit.

Nothing much to it, although I thought it through a little and mixed the stuffing with egg, flour and some baking powder. It took more than 10 minutes to cook, but it ended up quite nice and moist, with a crisp exterior and some loft from the baking powder. The stuffing was savory and rich (yup...sausage!) and the waffle was an excellent accompaniment to some roast chicken. It didn't rise as much as a plain waffle, so be warned, you'll have to load up the waffle iron with lots and lots of the stuffing mixture.

I know that some of you deeply deluded and, frankly, wrong-headed people like bread and eggs with sugar, but it is time to leave your childish tastes behind and become adults. So put down the syrup and pick up the salt and butter and pepper and all of those marvelous grown-up flavors that separate the men from the boys.

Seriously, this worked out really well and was easy to make, so give it a shot. You'll thank me. Well, no, you won't, but still, try it anyway.

Should We Take Occasional-Cortex Seriously?
This Guy Says, "Yes."


The woman is a national treasure; everything she says is a wonder of stupidity and ignorance and vacuousness and best of all, cluelessness. She really does think so highly of herself that she doesn't bother to stop a bit and learn something about the topics she discusses. We are all luckier for her existence, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Besides, her presence in the next Congress is meaningless; her voting record will be exactly what her predeccesser's was.

But is she a threat? Is her rank stupidity simply not enough to prevent her insane ideas from going more mainstream? This guy thinks so.

Why The Right Should Start Taking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Seriously

Yes, the tweet was incorrect. Yes, it would be nice if the people in our government had some actual knowledge about the things they talk about. Still, it is critical for folks on the right to avoid the mistakes made by the left. We must learn from how they treated (and treat) President Trump and endeavor not to make the same mistakes.

Do not underestimate this woman, and do not think your savage mockery of her stupidity will be an effective tool to stop her. It won’t. It will instead be personalized by her supporters, creating an army that will lay down and die for her (or at least vote for her), just like the army Trump has. You should be afraid of Ocasio-Cortez. Be much more afraid than you are.

I think his comparison to Trump is interesting but ultimately incorrect. There is a core of truth and undeniable utility in most of Trump's pronouncements as a candidate. Many of them were twisted beyond recognition by the media or simply truncated without the ability to appreciate his context.

Ocasio-Cortez is different. She really is stupid, and she is probably a bit nuts too. But that might not be enough...

You Will Be Forced To Celebrate!


Remember back in the day, those simpler times when the professional homosexual pressure groups (a subset of the far left) swore up and down that all they wanted was acceptance?

Christian Teacher Fired for Refusing to Use Transgender Student's New Pronouns

Vlaming, 47, was charged with discrimination after failing to use male pronouns to address a biologically female student. Vlaming did not intentionally misgender the student, but avoided using any pronouns to address or talk about the student in order to accord with his Christian faith, the Times-Dispatch reported.
This is a travesty of biblical (no pun intended) proportions. Simple recognition of biology is no longer enough to navigate the world. We must now acquiesce to, and actively participate in the destruction of 2,500 years of Western thought and ignore a moral code that has seen us through unimaginable brutality and created the foundations for the glory that Man has achieved.

No, we must now revel in the profound psychosis that is transgenderism, and we must lift our hands and pray to the new God...the God of self absorption and id and selfishness and narcissism.

I am sure it will all work out well.

Sunday Morning Book Thread 12-09-2018


thomas mann archive, zurich.jpgThomas Mann Archive, Zurich

Good morning to all you 'rons, 'ettes, lurkers, and lurkettes, wine moms, frat bros, and everybody who's holding your beer. Welcome once again to the stately, prestigious, internationally acclaimed and high-class Sunday Morning Book Thread, a weekly compendium of reviews, observations, and a continuing conversation on books, reading, and publishing by escaped oafs who follow words with their fingers and whose lips move as they read. Unlike other AoSHQ comment threads, the Sunday Morning Book Thread is so hoity-toity, pants are required. Even if it's these pants, which do have one virtue in that at least match the rest of the suit.

WARNING: The Sunday Morning Book Thread May Be Hazardous To Your Wallet, Bank Account, Or Credit Rating.

Pic Note

Thomas Mann was an author, and social critic. Born and raised in Germany, he beat feet for Switzerland in 1933 when Donald Drumpf Adolf Hitler rose to power. His best known novel is probably his first one, Buddenbrooks: The Decline of a Family, which is considered a modern classic. It also earned him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1929.

The Saturday Night Joke


A man came to visit his grandparents, and he noticed his grandfather sitting on the porch, in the rocking chair, wearing only a shirt, with nothing on from the waist down.

"Grandpa, what are you doing? Your weenie is out in the wind for everyone to see!" he exclaimed.

The old man looked off in the distance without answering .

"Grandpa, what are you doing sitting out here with nothing on below the waist?" he asked again.

The old man slowly looked at him and said "Well...last week I sat out here with no shirt on, and I got a stiff neck. This is your grandma's idea."

Saturday Evening Movie Thread 12-08-2018 [Hosted By: Moviegique]



I approach revisiting most of the comedies made in my lifetime with a degree of trepidation. Much like horror movies, comedies tend to lean on surprise and atmosphere (which I'm just realizing now as I type this), both of which are very ephemeral. Additionally, comedians tend to wear out their welcome rather quickly, and just mentioning their names can be eyeroll inducing. Then, when enough time has passed to forget (or at least forgive) the desperate last gasps of a great comedian, the original stuff is rediscovered and enjoyable in all its original genius.

Saturday Gardening Thread, Going Bold [KT]

—Open Blogger


Lurker anonymous sent in the fun photo above:

Living in San Diego I look forward to my display of aloes and succulents blooming. They bloom late fall and add so much color to the yard. Sometimes it takes a year or two for them to start producing and in some cases even longer. This one only took a year.

In front is an Aloe cameronii, which I believe is in the red aloe family, and the taller succulent in back is a Pedilanthus bracteatus.

Once you get hooked on aloes you just want more!

PS really look forward to the garden thread and the pet thread each Saturday. Thanks for doing this.

I love how the succulents, artwork and birdhouse go together, don't you? The fence serves as a fine backdrop. I wouldn't be surprised if the succulents attracted some hummingbirds, too. Bet they are easily visible.

Are surprises good for us?
Think Macron considers surprises to be good right now?

Ace and others have been writing here about the Yellow Jacket protests in France this week, which were expected to escalate today. I have seen some interesting information in the AoSHQ comments this morning, too. Skynews reports that tear gas and water cannons have been used. There are several dramatic photos at the link. Weren't we just told that Trump was a war criminal or something for using tear gas? How could this be happening under Macron?

The Wall Street Journal had a headline up reading, "Globtrotting Macron overlooked swelling anger at home". On Facebook, they referred to him as being "Astride the globe". How long do you think THAT will last?

Richard Fernandez made the following observation about this unexpected preference cascade:

Macron, the media -- nobody saw it coming. Nobody really predicts anything. Pearl Harbor, Hitler's invasion of Russia, the fall of the USSR, 9/11, 2008, Brexit or Hillary's loss. The really important info is not what you know but what you've ignored.

Senior Kamala Harris Aide Resigns Over Sexual Misconduct Allegation

—Ace of Spades

Kamala Harris claims she had no idea of this major scandal happening right under her poorly-shaped nose.

Quick, let's nominate her for Commander in Chief before she changes her mind.

Advisor Larry Wallace submitted his resignation to the California lawmaker after the Sacramento Bee inquired about a 2017 sexual harassment suit that targeted Wallace. Wallace reportedly settled the matter with a $400,000 payout to an employee who alleged, among other things, that she was told to crawl into some tight locations that would likely reveal more of her skin.

"We were unaware of this issue and take accusations of harassment extremely seriously,”"Harris spokeswoman Lily Adams said, according to the Bee. "This evening, Mr. Wallace offered his resignation to the senator, and she accepted it."

Kevin Hart Forced Out as Oscars Host Over Shocking Discovery That He, as a Black Comedian, Has Deployed Jokes Involving the Word "Gay" In the Past

—Ace of Spades

Quick, give me a glass of water so I can spit-take it all out.

The turn of events followed outcry over previous anti-gay tweets, and comments Hart made during stand-up routines nearly 10 years ago. Some of the tweets were feverishly deleted throughout the day on Thursday, leading to an Instagram video from the comedian that only made matters worse for him.

"My team calls me, 'Oh my God, Kevin, everyone’s upset by tweets you did years ago,'" he said in that video. "Guys, I'm nearly 40 years old. If you don't believe that people change, grow, evolve as they get older, I don't know what to tell you. If you want to hold people in a position where they always have to justify the past, do you. I'm the wrong guy, man."

Those words rang as a defiant non-apology for many. Hours later, Hart resurfaced with another video stating that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had given him an ultimatum: Apologize or we'll find a new host.

Forced apologies are what America is all about.

“I chose to pass on the apology,” the 39-year-old actor-comedian said in the video. "The reason why I passed is because I've addressed this several times. This is not the first time this has come up. I've addressed it. I've spoken on it. I've said where the rights and wrongs were. I've said who I am now versus who I was then. I've done it. I'm not going to continue to go back and tap into the days of old when I've moved on and I’m in a completely different place in my life."

That, too, rang hollow for many. Less than two hours later, Hart announced via Twitter that he was removing himself from the gig, and he finally offered the apology everyone was looking for.

Wired is just beside itself and just can't even!!!

The several-years-old missives, filled with homophobic slurs, began circulating almost as soon as Hart was announced as the host of next year's Academy Awards ceremony. The 39-year-old actor and comedian deleted many of the messages, including a 2011 tweet in which he wrote that, were his son to play with his daughter's dollhouse, Hart would "break it over his head & say n my voice 'stop that's gay'." But the internet quickly dug up several more crude and cruel statements from his Twitter feed, some of which included terms like "FAT FAG" and jokes about AIDS.

Kevin Hart's forced apology was made, of course, to try to stop the NPCs from ending his career completely. Which they're going to try to do.

Nooo! Anti-Israel Extremist Rashida Tlaib Received Stipend from George Soros, But Misrepresented That Monetary Support in Financial Disclosures

—Ace of Spades

It's weird that George Soros funds antisemitism and then cries "Antisemitism!" when he's criticized.

Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) did not disclose the name of the source of funds for a fellowship that was paid by liberal billionaire George Soros—as required by the House ethics committee00and also disclosed a lesser amount than she received, according to a review of tax and financial disclosure forms.

The Washington Free Beacon obtained the most recent copies of tax forms for a number of Soros's organizations, including the Open Society Institute, the legal name for the Open Society Foundations, the entity in which Soros pushes millions in funding to a number of liberal causes and organizations.

BTW, this entire article is antisemitic, because it mentions that the non-Jewish George Soros fund the left, and it became antisemitic to say that the non-Jewish George Soros funds the left the moment he started funding segments of the former right.

An expenditure of $85,307 to Rashida Tlaib in Detroit, Mich., from 2017 is shown on page 97 of the 321-page report to "to increase involvement of disenfranchised urban communities of color with their local governance process by creating a community benefits strategy for equitable development and creating a leadership training for impacted residents focused on negotiation skills and identifying leverage at the local level."

Tlaib did not report any income in the amount of $85,307 on financial disclosure forms submitted as she was running for office, which identified the names of the sources that provided her income in three of four cases.

Any guesses on which name she kept off her financial disclosure?

However, the fourth reported source of earned income is marked as a "Leadership in Government Fellowship," but does not identify who provided the payment.

A press release from 2016 shows that Tlaib was chosen for a "leadership in government" fellowship by Soros's Open Society Foundations along with seven other individuals.

Prosecutors Looking Into the Podesta Group?

—Ace of Spades

The Podesta Group had the same foreign clients as Paul Manafort, and likewise did not register, as the law requires, as a foreign agent.

Is Mueller actually looking into them, even if just to "make it look good," or is he trying to find out what they heard about Random Trump Flunkie #8?

Federal prosecutors have recently resumed interviewing witnesses in an investigation of two lobbying firms that worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, including one operated by the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

According to The Associated Press, prosecutors in New York have in recent weeks started contacting witnesses and attorneys as part of an investigation into the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs.

The two firms worked with Manafort through 2014 on a consulting project aimed at fluffing the public image of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

Prosecutors have also focused on Greg Craig, the former White House general counsel under then-President Barack Obama and a former partner at the firm Skadden Arps. CNN reported in September that prosecutors were weighing charges against Craig, who has since left his firm.


According to court filings submitted in Manafort’s case, the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs failed to register as foreign agents of Ukraine despite knowing that they were working on behalf of Yanukovych.

And at Skadden Arps, Craig helped craft a report aimed at smearing one of Yanukovych’s political rivals.
