Project Veritas Sting Video: Claire McCaskill Staffer Says Planned Parenthood Doesn't Donate Directly to McCaskill So As Not to Alienate Pro-Life Voters, But Smuggles a Lot of Money to Her Through Cut-Out Organizations

—Ace of Spades

Digested at RedState.

Journalist: What were you telling me last night about Planned Parenthood?

Starost: How they never- How they don't donate to Claire because they don't want to ostracize pro-life voters in Missouri.

Journalist: But they still somehow get us money?

Starost: They put it through, like, different organizations.

Journalist: Keep the Planned Parenthood name off the thing, but we still get the dough?

Starost: Yup. I love that stuff, man. It's f-ing beautiful.

The Obama State Department Subverted The Rule Of Law During The Investigation Into The Clinton Server Scandal


Laws are for the little people, and if an illegal and unsecured server was hacked by seemingly every one of our enemies...well, that's just the price of being a serf in the Obama/Clinton world.

State Department provided 'clearly false' statements to derail requests for Clinton docs, 'shocked' federal judge says

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was "shocked" and "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.

"I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case," Lamberth said during Friday's hearing.

I wonder whether there is a critical mass of judges on the federal level who in spite of their partisanship are even more disgusted by the overt dismissal of the rule of law by the elites, and the explicit assumption that at a certain level within the government, all are immune?

I sure hope so.

Judge "Shocked" at State Department Providing "Clearly False" Statements to Avoid Disclosing Documents Related to Clinton Email Investigation

—Ace of Spades

I'm shocked that he's shocked, to be honest.

In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing "clearly false" affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was "shocked" and "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.

"I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in -- by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case," Lamberth said during Friday's hearing.

Lamberth rules against a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against the State Department, citing the fact that they have lied and lied and lied about searching for Clinton's emails, and other matters.

"It was clear to me that at the time that I ruled initially, that false statements were made to me by career State Department officials, and it became more clear through discovery that the information that I was provided was clearly false regarding the adequacy of the search and this -- what we now know turned out to be the Secretary's email system," Lamberth said Friday.

He continued: "I don’t know the details of what kind of IG inquiry there was into why these career officials at the State Department would have filed false affidavits with me. I don't know the details of why the Justice Department lawyers did not know false affidavits were being filed with me, but I was very relieved that I did not accept them and that I allowed limited discovery into what had happened."

During a tense exchange with Justice Department lawyer Robert Prince, Lamberth pressed the issue, accusing Prince of using "doublespeak" and "playing the same word games [Clinton] played."

That "was not true," the judge said, referring to the State Department's assurances in a sworn declaration that it had searched all relevant documents. "It was a lie."

Note this tweet about this story by Jason Chaffetz, calling out the Cuck's Champion Ben Sasse for aiding Clinton and the Deep State in the cover-up:

They're not NeverTrump -- they're NeverConservative. They're just on the other side.

They always have been.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition



Maybe a taste of totalitarianism is a necessary prerequisite for the preservation of freedom. In the greatest experiment in freedom the world has ever known (that's here, in case it wasn't obvious), we seem to have gone off the rails. Perhaps the people who are suggesting that the "burning times" is a necessary first step on the path to our roots of freedom and self-determination and independence, are correct. Because we are fat and happy and barrelling down the mountain toward a country that has absolutely no sense of any of the things that innervated those very smart men who founded this country.

Hungary Enacts Plans to Ban Gender Studies Courses, Tangles with Soros

The Soros-funded Central European University (CEU) said on Oct. 16 that it was a “major infringement on academic freedom and university autonomy.”

Soros is touted by Orban’s government as public enemy No. 1—as the puppeteer behind leftist influences that Orban says he wants to replace with traditional “Christian values.”

The Hungarian government’s anti-Soros campaign forced his Open Society Foundations to leave the country earlier this year, after creating new rules on influence by foreign organizations.

And look at that! Good old Nazi George is involved, and getting his pet brain-washing project sidelined by the Hungarian government. Why, it's as if the government is trying to conserve the traditional culture of the country, and not let it be subsumed by globalist nonsense in the form of 71 genders and idiotic pseudo-intellectual blather.

I'm trying to think of a reason why the Hungarian people would be wary of a left-wing globalist perspective, and the use of academia to control society. Anyone have any idea why they seem so sensitive? Anything in their history?

The Morning Report - 10/18/18

—J.J. Sefton


Good morning kids. Thursday and as the Midterms approach, the Democrat-Left violence and intimidation is ramping up. You'd think that with a massive victory all but in the bag, or so the press has been telling us all year long, violence and intimidation would be the last thing they'd be fomenting/participating in. Snark-asm aside, this situation is intolerable and is only going to get worse - a lot worse - especially if the promised massive victory fails to materialize, which day by day is becoming a very distinct possibility.

The most recent examples include a Soros-paid goon being arrested and charged with assault after attacking the campaign manager for Nevada GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt, two Minnesota GOP state candidates have been under near constant verbal and physical assault, a propagandist professor in Mississippi is openly calling for Republicans to be confronted and harassed by "sticking fingers in their salads" (literally or is that a euphemism?) and most disgusting and disturbing is an incident in Portland, Oregon, which has now devolved into Gaza on the Willamette. During the protests a woman evidently ran afoul of a brave, Antifa "freedom fighter" who upon learning that the woman was a 9/11 widow was told...

"...your husband should fucking rot in the grave."

As revolting as this is, I think I am even more disgusted by the fact that not only did he not cover his face as the incident was being recorded, but everyone around him all had a good laugh as this woman had the memory of her husband defecated upon by this slug and everyone around him. Certainly, all things considered, I imagine if there was anyone nearby who felt compelled to come to her defense quickly disabused themselves of that notion since Portland is now officially a no-go zone for any and all Americans and other law-abiding citizens. On a personal level, I hope that this vile entity is identified and, shall we say, gets his comeuppance.

More broadly, there is no longer even the tiniest scintilla of common ground. The mentality of the thug in question is not an outlier. It is the mindset of the leadership and members of the Democrat Party, its media/propaganda arm and virtually all of academia, from pre-school through post-graduate. There can be no longer any question that the nation is in a state of dissolution, even as the seemingly routine events of regular elections take place in the midst of it. It's all so damned bizarre, really. It's not mere rhetoric to say, as Lindsey Graham did at that travesty of a confirmation hearing, that I hope to G-d the Democrats never get back into power. After everything we have seen and are continuing to live through, it would not be wholly inaccurate for me to say that I think the Democrats should be prevented from ever attaining power again - and I do not mean merely via the ballot box. You know, for a while now, Augusto Pinochet has been a recurring theme in the comments but as time goes on, it's becoming less snark and more wishful thinking on my part. G-d help us. Let's move on before I write something I might regret.

The other big story is the phony migrant "caravan" slithering its way through Central America and towards our southern border. Evidently it has grown to approximately 4,000 people, mostly from Honduras as well as most likely funded by your favorite Nazi collaborator and mine George Soros (4,000 people don't just appear out of nowhere). The President has warned that nation and others that they are risking being cut off from foreign aid if they allow this to continue. That said, he is fully within his authority as chief executive to stop this on his own, an Hawaiian hack-in-black notwithstanding. In any case, Nancy Palsi has assured us that there will be no border wall if, G-d forbid, she ever gets her bony digits on the Speaker's gavel. Any GOP candidate running should be hitting this note and hard for the next 20 days. And lastly, an illegal alien has been arrested and charged with practicing dentistry without a license. He was quoted as saying "Hey NGU, you're doing it wrong!"

And speaking of politics, the seemingly ignominious end (if that is possible for Democrats these days) of Fauxcahontas' political aspirations tops the category as a real descendant of the real Pocahontas demands an apology, Andrew Cuomo refuses to debate his GOP challenger Marc Molinaro, Krysten Sinema is a freak, Malkin on "puta-chica-Domincana" Bob Menendez electoral woes, Scott Wallace uses a gun felon as a character witness, several links about the all but evaporated "blue wave," Chelsea Hubbel denounces Calypso Louie but not Sarsour the Hamas Louse, Cuck Schemer is silent about his party's open Joo- and Israel-hate, the gun-grabbers are quietly shifting focus and bucks to other Dem issues this cycle, and yet Ben Jealous persists with an insane gun-grabbing scheme for Maryland, Keith X's Muslim protege denies she married her brother and guess what country is going to observe our elections.

On the international front, the President and SoS Pompeo are sounding the right chords on this Khashoggi affair, the Trump of Brazil is sounding the alarm bells on Farsi electoral interference there, Nikki Haley still shines at the UN despite that filthy sewer's attitude on the fictional nation and people of Palestine so-called, Billy Ayers must have a hard-on for the Chi-Com re-education camps, and war is brewing along the Gaza border (Gaza-Gaza, not just Portland-Gaza).

In Mueller witch hunt news, Go-Go Gohmert says that the announcement of an impending conclusion of the investigation is only to keep the Dems from being depressed when he announces that there was no collusion, if the Dems take the House, Adam Schiff-for-brains is going to bury everything that can implicate his party and Byron York on the intractable Rod Rosenpenis.

Domestically, some sort of weird polio-like disease is busting out all over (mostly near the border), PDT signs into law a measure to clean up our oceans, the EPA is praising his efforts on lowered greenhouse gas emissions (I smell a rat there) and e-mails reveal even more of the plot to sue oil companies out of existence.

From hither and yon, thanks to Kavanaugh the #MeToo movement is drawing more skepticism than ever, American academia is a vast nest of propagandists and hacks, Democratic Socialism is neither (and worse), and Carroll Spinney is hanging up the Big Bird costume after playing the character on Sesame Street for 49 years.

Lastly, the President has awarded the Medal of Honor to Marine Sgt. Major John L. Canley for his heroism in Vietnam. He ain't no Danang Dick Blumenthal, but still. Oo-rah! and thank you.

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

    Quote III

    We must never remain silent in the face of bigotry. We must condemn those who seek to divide us.

    White Privilege Means Having Your Reputation and Career Destroyed for Asking a Black Guy for I.D. [Warden]

    —Open Blogger

    Yet another white person convicted by the media of racism, condemned by the internet mob, and fired from her job--all before her side of the story can be heard.

    Well, you can hear it now that her life has been ruined by baseless smears. This "racist" white woman stopped another building occupant who she didn't recognize from following her into the building. The reason she didn’t allow him in is because there had been crime and at least one mugging in the building previously, and she had been instructed by her HOA to never let anyone into the building who didn't have a key fob.

    So, she followed the instruction and asked to see the man's key fob that would prove he was an occupant. It turns out he was. He'd just moved in. The problem is she asked a member of a privileged class here in America, a black man, and he took offense.

    Instead of simply saying, "Oh, hi. I'm new here. I've got my key fob right here. Let me introduce myself," he chose to cry racism.

    And thus her life was ruined by yet another round of the media's favorite new game, Smite the Normie.

    If you aren't familiar with this game, here's how it works.

    1. A white person asks a minority, usually black, for identification or to follow
    some general rule of membership, property, etc...

    2. The black denies the perfectly reasonable request, claims racism and
    escalates the conflict while recording it on a smart phone.

    3. The video is posted on social media, often edited and always with missing

    4. The media runs with the "look how racist white people are to blacks"
    narrative and convicts the white person of racism.

    5. The story goes national.

    6. The white person is threatened, harassed, and then fired from his/her job,
    despite the conflict not having taken place at work and having nothing to
    do with their employment.

    Now here's the fun part: If and only if you watch the video on that news website do you discover that this "racist" white woman is married to a black guy.

    Days later, buried at the end of a video most people won't watch is a piece of context that most people would deem exonerating. Aren't journalists terrific?

    This is happening every other month or so, which leads me to believe that the people who record these videos know exactly how much power they possess to harm whites through weaponized online outrage, eagerly stoked by the left-wing media.

    Robert Hampton at American Renaissance documents other recent cases here.

    This incident followed that of a black babysitter looking after two white children who complained on camera last week that a white woman called the cops on him--this even earned a report from the New York Times. The babysitter is a 27-year-old black man, hardly a typical caretaker for white children. The Times called this "babysitting while black."

    There were two similar cases in July. A white CVS manager was fired after he called the cops on a black woman customer who threw a tantrum over the rejection of a fraudulent coupon and refused to leave the store. The man's name was all over social media and the press sided with the black woman.

    A white neighborhood swimming-pool monitor lost his job after he called the police on a black woman who angrily refused to show her ID. His name was also on social media, and again, the New York Times covered the encounter, dubbing the man "ID Adam."

    These incidents came after the much-covered “racial profiling” ruckus at a Philadelphia Starbucks in April. Video showed two black men being ushered out of the coffee shop by police after they asked to use the rest room, refused to buy anything, and then refused to leave. This video had a huge impact and probably taught blacks the value of taping encounters. The result was intense, undeserved humiliation for Starbucks and for the manager who called the police. There was also a "confidential financial settlement" between the blacks and Starbucks.

    We need to get a handle on this abuse. It's turning whites into second class citizens--people who can have their entire lives ruined by anyone belonging to the victim class who decides to level a charge of racism at them.

    You are interested in civility, in getting along. But there is an entire group of sociopaths on the left who are not interested in these things at all. What they want is the power to control, humiliate, and ultimately ruin you.

    If that sounds familiar to what happened to Judge Kavanaugh, well it's clearly a go-to tactic of leftists these days. It’s not the individual person who is being smeared that matters. It's the message that’s being sent to the rest of us.

    Shut up. Sit down. Know your place. We’re in charge and don't you dare question anything we do.

    You deserve this, you filthy white piece of garbage.

    Frustratingly, some of the most enthusiastic participants in these internet mobs are other whites, particularly white women--happy to throw an innocent person under the racism bus simply for a few up-votes and Facebook likes.

    They don't seem to understand that they could be next.

    For as much abuse as Judge Kavanaugh took, at least he had part of the government backing him up. To where does your average person turn when they've been smeared on a national scale and had their ability to make a living permanently crippled?

    We need to find ways to fight this, starting with setting up funding for anyone who is victimized in this manner. We also need to press for legislation protecting non-public facing workers from being fired for private acts. We also need to fund lawsuits against companies who do this. Possibly a case could be made for disparate treatment simply by combing other employees' social media accounts for "offensive" material. I don't know. I'm not a lawyer.

    Like ace, I've had quite enough of this fetishizing the "rights" of private companies to abuse any employee who happens to be on the political right. It's time to make political ideology a protected class.

    Minnesota Democrat Party Suspends (Not Fires) Party Official For Encouraging Political Violence After Two Republicans Are Physically Attacked

    —Ace of Spades

    Gee, I just hope there wasn't any gloating by Republicans that would justify these assaults.

    And I hope there was no #OwningTheLibs, either. Which is the same as punching someone, to hear some of our sob sister cucks tell it.

    The Minnesota Democratic Party has suspended a spokesman for calling for violence against Republicans even as two GOP candidates have been assaulted in suspected politically motivated attacks.

    The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party has suspended communications staffer William Davis for one week without pay after making a Facebook post joking that Democrats would "bring [Republicans] to the guillotine" on Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections. Minnesota Republican Party chairman Jennifer Carnahan said the suspension was not enough, calling for his immediate firing in the aftermath of separate attacks against Republican candidates. She said she has been subjected to numerous death threats during her tenure as the state party leader and that death threats are no laughing matter.

    The rest of the article talks about the violence.

    Week's suspension. Wow.

    And -- don't accuse them of mob-like tactics!

    Report: Mueller Preparing to Announce Key Findings in Russia Hoax Probe After Elections;
    Rosenstein Reportedly Urging Him to Wrap It Up Already

    —Ace of Spades

    Not sure if that bit about Rosenstein is legit or just disinformation pumped out there to trick Trump into letting him stay on at Justice.

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to issue findings on core aspects of his Russia probe soon after the November midterm elections as he faces intensifying pressure to produce more indictments or shut down his investigation, according to two U.S. officials.

    Specifically, Mueller is close to rendering judgment on two of the most explosive aspects of his inquiry: whether there were clear incidents of collusion between Russia and Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, and whether the president took any actions that constitute obstruction of justice, according to one of the officials, who asked not to be identified speaking about the investigation.


    Rosenstein has made it clear that he wants Mueller to wrap up the investigation as expeditiously as possible, another U.S. official said.

    This isn't as big a deal as you might think, because the Democrat-Media Complex has its next conspiracy theory cum Special Counsel investigation lined up: Whether or not Trump aided and abetted the Saudis in killing a guy who, quite frankly, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and staunch Islamist who used to pal around with a terrorist named Osama bin Ladin.

    FBI Makes Arrest in Case of Illegal Leaks of Financial Information About Paul Manafort

    Either she goes to jail for this, or I'm personally vowing I will vote "Not guilty" in each and every federal case I'm a juror on.

    Either the laws apply to all or they apply to none. If the government is not going to prosecute and jail criminals who are in their little club, then as a citizen, I'm going to practice jury nullification and extend the same Privileges and Immunities to citizens who aren't sucking at the government tit.

    Obviously we should trust our Uncivil Servants implicitly.

    Let's Play A Game: What Would America Look Like If The Supreme Court (and Others) Could Not Overturn Popular Will


    Let us ignore for a moment that this turd fished out of the Charles River and tossed into Harvard Yard did not argue something completely different just two years ago.

    Harvard Law Prof Who Wanted to Unleash a Liberal Supreme Court Now Wants to 'Abolish' the Court

    There are two components of the case for getting rid of judicial review. One is that, as a matter of basic democratic principle, the people ought to be able to consider policies and then vote on them without having the courts step in and say "no." So from a democratic point of view, it's hard to justify allowing the courts to single-handedly overrule popular will whenever they choose.

    The second component is that judicial review may actually impair the public's ability to engage in serious thinking about what the Constitution means, and what we want to do in light of what we think our Constitution says. In a way, the Supreme Court simply takes on this conversation for itself, and leaves the citizenry as bystanders.

    He has no understanding of the basic principles of our country's political philosophy! And he is a professor. At Harvard.

    "So, to recap, after months of trolling by President Trump, who likes to call her 'Pocahontas', Sen. Warren released the results of her DNA test. Yes, shd did. And it turns out that she isn't 1/2 Cherokee or 1/4th Cherokee or 1/8th Cherokee or even 1/16th Cherokee. No, you have to go all the way down to 1/1024th to match the percentage, which means that about 10 generations ago, one of Warren's ancestors kissed an Indian on the lips, and that's the extent of Warren's native American heritage. In other words, nothing. She's 1023/1024 white bread American. Heck, *I've* got more Indian blood than she does, and I'm a gorilla. And now Warren and her defenders are out there running a victory lap like it proved she was right, when actually it's the exact opposite. If it proves anything at all. Because supposedly there's not much Amerindian DNA in the databases that they can use for comparison, so in reality, the 1/1024th is probably some sort of Latin American DNA and that's as close as they can match it to anything. And you gotta love Donnie Two Scoops. When the journos asked him to comment on the test results, he just said 'who cares?' and walked away."

    The Morning Report - 10/17/18

    —J.J. Sefton


    Good morning kids. Midweek and we'll get to the Democrats continued self-immolation with Fauxcahontas, McAssKill, Heitkamp and Clinton at just under 3 weeks from the Midterms in a moment.

    But the top story is the disappearance and and most likely liquidation of "journalist" Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudis. The meme that is being pimped by the propaganda machine is that Khashoggi was some sort of fearless investigative reporter who, because of his exposing the corruption and tyranny of Saudi Arabia's new putative reformer Prince Mohammed bin Salman, became an embarrassment and was therefore targeted for termination.

    As is always the case, there's a lot more to the story than what's being reported. It turns out that Khashoggi, who is a relative of the infamous arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, was part of the old-line faction of Saudi royalty who pimped extremist Wahabbism, and was himself a member of the Muslim Brotherhood that has as its central tenet rabid anti-western and anti-modernity worldview. As, for lack of a better word, "progressive" as the KSA can be for a medieval society, the new prince (who is a millennial and a big fan of Silicon Valley high tech [that region's Leftist bent notwithstanding]) represents a direct threat to that. Khashoggi used his position as a Washington Post writer to go after him, ostensibly as a muck-raker but in reality as a poo-flinger. And the western press ate it up since by extension Khashoggi was also attacking President Trump, Israel and the anti-Iran alliance that has been building since the former took office. John Hinderaker at Powerline has a good take on it:

    It's understandable that the U.S. and the Europeans are reluctant to damage their economies over the fate of one man in a bloody region of the world. But for the U.S. in particular, it's not just a question of economics. Saudi Arabia is a key strategic ally in the quest to thwart Iranian ambitions.

    Rather than remaining neutral in the struggle between Iran and Saudi Arabia, the Trump administration picked a side. As between the two unsavory powers, it picked the Saudis.

    Both decisions were reasonable and, in my view, correct. The strategic thinking behind the decisions applies in full force even if, as seems very possible, the Saudis were responsible for killing Khashoggi.

    THIS. Considering our very troubled, to be charitable, relationship with Saudi Arabia, I'm not exactly taking a Pollyanna-ish attitude about this new prince. That said, he has taken some positive steps internally and externally and said some very positive things vis a vis the future of his nation in relation to its past. As time passes, it certainly is looking more and more that Jamal Khashoggi was an enemy to progress (at whatever form and speed it takes in that nation) and he had to go. The fact that his death resembles a scene from Fargo rather than Munich is another issue entirely.

    But to me, the most disappointing and disturbing reaction comes from Lindsey Graham who has stated in no uncertain terms that Prince Mohammed bin Salman "has got to go." Considering all of the above as well as the fact that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is not a Jeffersonian Democracy but an autocratic theocracy, Graham's ignorance on this is absolutely radiant (stay tuned to the Amnesty/Immigration headlines). He ain't going nowhere, Lindsey. The issue of political assassinations is a touchy one, and has been for well over 50 years now. Considering Vladimir Putin's polonium proclivities, and the Left's perpetual shrieking of "collusion," the Saudis have put themselves and by extension us into a bit of a PR situation. There's no easy way out, since the pro-Iran/pro-caliphate dhimmis in the media are not going to let go of this. No doubt Jm J Acosta will claim the President has blood on his hands and Steve Cohen will push for a posthumous Purple Heart for Khashoggi. Hopefully, more revelations about the latter's past and activities will come to light and help defuse this situation.

    Speaking of political assassination, the Democrat-Left continues to ramp up the rhetoric and incitement in the wake of the Kavanaugh confirmation and in the run up to the 2018 Midterms. Maoist and dullard Tim Kaine is not quoting the Rolling Stones but actually calling for fighting in the streets, something his convicted Antifa thug son knows all about, some psycho at the psycho Minnesota Democrat Farm Labor Party called for Republicans to be "beheaded" (they say it was "an inside joke"), along with packing the SCOTUS and abolishing Senate, the Dems now want to expand the House (presumably by gerrymandering Mexico City and Tegucigalpa) and J.T. Young and Daniel Greenfield about what the Kavanaugh confirmation was really all about vis a vis waning Democrat political/policy power.

    Moving down the list to the scandal sheet, the FBI has raided the offices of corruptocrat San Juan PR Mayor, and vicious Trump-hater, Carmen Yulin Cruz and the Democrat Awan IT scandal still reeks to high heaven and there is still much more to be revealed. And in First Amendment Fake News and Fakery, Joe Arpaio slams Slim's Slimes with a defamation suit, Facebook deletes a disabled vet's page after ripping him off to the tune of $300,000 in ad revenue, and some college ham radio host warns that President Pence would be worse than Trump if he gets impeached (meh, been hearing that since forever already). Lastly, a frightening report about Scotland's backhand official persecution of Christians if they utter "hate speech."

    On to politics with a soupcon of Amnesty since the two are bigly and inextricably entwined. Along with his cluelessness on what's going on with Saudi Arabia, Lindsey Graham is set to shoot himself in the other foot by pushing for a hideous new DACA "fix" which in fact fixes nothing. Just when I was thinking he was coming around, he steps on his pee-pee. Maybe he hasn't seen that a new poll is out showing voters are overwhelmingly high on limiting immigration. Also, Nancy Palsi's dentures are clattering something about no compromise on the "immoral" border wall and something about the President's manhood. Meanwhile, sanity rules as PDT has threatened all countries south of the border who allow their citizens to flow north are going to have their foreign aid cut, and that immediately caused Honduras to send out a plea for the 3,000-strong caravan of would-be border jumpers to turn around and come home. Senator Graham, please take note; this is what is known in the trade as "motivation."

    And segueing into politics, Claire McAssKill has accused opponent Josh Hawley of setting her up in that Project Veritas sting (did he make your lips move, sweetie?), new Kirsten Sinema soundbites emerge wherein she rips the state she wants to be Senator of, Brian Kemp is in a bit of a nail-biter with that rotund schmuck Stacy Abrams for the Georgia governorship, Julian Castro is the latest Maoist-du-jour to throw his kepi into the Dem 2020 prexy derby, the Bredesen campaign treasurer has been accused of a Hatch Act violation (he's Democrat so nothing will happen), Rabbi Dov Fischer on the Dem whine-fest, and a rather disturbing report about voter registration info being stolen and available on the dark-net.

    The great news, all but embargoed by the propagandists, is the economy. The US has recaptured the title of world's most competitive economy for the first time in 10 years (remind me who was president during those years?), the Fed has collected an all time high in tax revenues thanks to the Trump tax cuts and bookending that, the number of jobs available is also at an all time high at 7.14 million for the month of August. July was at 7.1 million which was also a record. But, "Blue Wave!!!" Meanwhile, Mitch McConnell says his biggest disappointment in Congress was not dealing with entitlements. After picking myself off the floor when the laughter died off, a part of me thought, is he just saying this as a tease in the run up to the Midterms or is he perhaps promising something if the GOP retains Congress? The cynic in me says it's the typical ploy, but since Kavanaugh maybe PDT put a few nice words in his ear about winning (he did get a standing ovation at a Kentucky rally the other day which Rush noted). I hope he doesn't backslide like Graham evidently has.

    Moving along, we have warnings about another potential ebola outbreak, a Maryland cop is arrested for raping a woman during a traffic stop (the ethnicity of the officer may memory-hole this story), SCOTUS wrestles with the redefinition of the term "violent crime," Asians sound off on leftist school admission policy, and the latest in the disastrous Catholic church sex abuse scandal.

    From hither and yon, the Rosanne-less Roseanne sequel aired (big fat meh), Sarah Silverman is a phony slag, and a thoughtful piece about Kanye West and what it means for the scales to be falling away from his eyes - disaster for the Dem-Left if he can convince fellow blacks to burn down the plantation. Please G-d.

    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

    Of course, if true, it’s HUGE. Kavanaugh’s demeanor when drunk in college sounds nearly as awful as liberals’ behavior when sober — obnoxious, aggressive and argumentative. I refer you to the recent antics we’ve seen on Capitol Hill, as well as anywhere Ted Cruz stops in for a bite. Ann Coulter

    Quote II

    "President Trump was not the person I wanted to become the nominee of our party, but he's president now. The policies he's promoted have been pretty effective. And I support a lot of those policies. When there's a place where I disagree, I point that out," Mitt Romney

    Quote III

    'And now in my adult life, in my relationships, it's a way for me to feel vulnerable and exposed and close to my partner. It's a very intimate thing.

    'Imagine if the easiest way to delight your partner is you just throw a ball across the room. Relationships wouldn't fail anymore if that's all you had to do. Tony McGinn

    Polls: Blue Wave Receding

    —Ace of Spades

    CNBC doesn't find Democrats outperforming their normal registration advantage.

    CNBC All-America Economic Survey shows no big blue wave in November 3 Hours Ago | 00:52 With economic optimism soaring in the country, will Democrats be able to sweep to power in either house of Congress or will buoyant sentiment help Republicans keep hold of their Congressional majorities?

    The latest CNBC All-America Economic Survey offers mixed signals, but leans against a wave Democratic election like that those that swept Republicans to power in 2010 and 2014.

    The poll of 800 Americans across the country, with a margin of error of 3.5 percent, found a six-point Democratic lead on the question of who voters will choose in the November congressional elections. The 42 percent to 36 percent margin is not far from what pollsters would expect given the greater percentage of Democratic registered voters.

    "A six point differential is not something that's going to cause a big electoral wave," said Micah Roberts, the Republican pollster on the CNBC poll, a partner Public Opinion Strategies. "Economic confidence that people have among a lot of groups is providing a buffer" for Republicans.

    And while an ABC poll finds a nine point Democrat lead in the generic congressional poll -- 53-42 -- in the sixty-six districts that are actually competitive, that actually are in play, Republicans lead those by a single point, 47-46.

    Guys, don't vote because you believe the Republican Party should be rewarded.

    Vote because you hate the progressive totalitarians and dealing them a setback may actually drive them mad.

    Social Justice Warriors Now Outraged Over the "NPC" Meme

    —Ace of Spades

    This article from Breitbart explains the meme.

    The new "NPC" meme mocks leftists by depicting them as unthinking and reflexive automatons. The meme has upset the left so much that Twitter is now banning people posting it for "dehumanizing speech," but its humble origins are the computer-controlled characters of limited intelligence found in most video games.

    The popular NPC meme trend frames its targets as non-player characters (NPCs) who reflexively spout neo-Marxist axioms in response to real-world events. Actual NPCs are computer-controlled characters in video games with limited scripted responses given the parameters of the games in which they appear. For example, NPCs may assign quests to the player in games like Skyrim, or join the player as a companion in Fallout.

    Built on the long-running Wojak meme, the NPC meme mocks leftists as expressionless in appearance and bot-like in behavior. The universal standard appearance illustrates the left's political homogeneity.

    Breitbart has a good collection of memes, depicting leftists as barely-sentient simulated life-forms.

    NPC blog Kotaku bemoaned the mockery of NPCs:

    NPCs have no agency; NPCs don't think for themselves; NPCs don't perceive, process, or understand; NPCs arrive at the same worldview not because it’s authentic to their experiences, but automatically. As a descriptor, it suggests that those to whom it applies aren't even human, but are rather, functionally, robots, or clusters of computer code. That this has resonated as widely as it has is funny, but also a little scary.

    Breitbart notes:

    Despite the left's insistence that the NPC meme is "dehumanizing," there seems to be no similar outcry from the same people when conservatives on social media are dismissed as "Russian bots" by opponents.

    Tim Pool did a video about the evolution of this meme and the left's lunatic reaction to it.

    He then did an update when leftists upgraded the NPC meme from "dehumanizing" to "fascist capitalism."

    He did a third video when he realized the weird "meme magic" going on with the NPC meme.

    Wow: Heidi Heitkamp Puts Out Campaign Ad Identifying Sexual Assault Victims by Name and Address... Without Their Permission

    —Ace of Spades

    The wheels are coming off all the buses.

    Some women say they're not even sexual assault victims.

    "We are here to let you know that you are wrong -- this is not 'a movement toward victimization' it's about being a survivor," the ad reads. "We are here to let you know that we have all suffered from domestic violence, sexual assault, or rape -- and that yes, we expect somebody to believe us when we say it. Because it happened."

    At the bottom of the letter is a long list of North Dakotan women who are identified as sexual assault survivors. However, some of the women named in the ad say the campaign did not seek their permission.

    "A lot of these people listed, including me, did not give anyone permission for our names to be posted," Kady Miller wrote on Facebook. "I don't even support Heidi Heitkamp and I am not a domestic abuse survivor."

    "This is completely unprofessional," commenter Keeley Beck, who also found her name on Heitkamp's list, wrote. "I want justice," she added. "For myself and others who were illegally used and taken advantage of for corrupt, infactual, political propaganda."

    Another women wrote on Facebook that she was "disgusted" and "furious" to see her name in the ad.

    Phil Kerpen has a long thread in which he quotes Heidi Heitkamp's response, presumably from a press conference. She takes responsibility, which isn't really a heroic gesture -- she is responsible for this. She's not being magnanimous.

    Here's one of the women, venting:

    The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition



    Lost in the joys of winning day after day is the reality that the federal government is still hemorrhaging money...our money! Spending on healthcare is approaching 30% of the budget, Social Security is about 25% Defense is about 15%, and the rest of the oh-so-vital federal government pisses away about the same...15%. What is going to get nasty is the tab for interest on the debt, which with rising interest rates is going to be a bigger and bigger issue.

    This is the one area that President Trump's business experience is not helpful. He is used to highly leveraged deals, with the opportunity to refinance and refinance and possibly just declare bankruptcy if cash flow doesn't cover the debt service. But the federal government doesn't have that option, and he needs to start swinging that budget-cutting axe a lot more forcefully.

    Trump sees federal deficit soar in first full year

    President Trump oversaw a massive increase in the deficit during his first full year in office, the Treasury Department announced Monday, pointing to rising spending and stagnant taxes that threaten to send the government back into the realm of trillion-dollar shortfalls.

    The government ended fiscal 2018 at $779 billion in the red, or 17 percent more than fiscal 2017, which was split between President Obama and Mr. Trump.

    I don't know what the actuarial tables will say about this, but it seems like the only way to dig ourselves out of the Social Security quagmire is to stop indexing to inflation and couple that with an option to opt out in exchange for a decrease in the SS tax. Disability and Medicaid could be made more efficient simply by cracking down on the unbelievable abuses inherent in the systems. But...in the long run, without comprehensive overhauls, we are screwed.

    The Morning Report - 10/16/18

    —J.J. Sefton


    Good morning kids. Tuesday and the top story is actually a couple of things that individually are, to be charitable, suboptimal in the optics department for the Dems but together I think are just disastrous for them. First and largest of these turds in the electoral punch bowl is Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas/Lieawatha" Warren's DNA test which was guaranteed to prove once and for all that she is not lying about her native American heritage, but in the event proved beyond any doubt that she's so white, she's translucent. More like transparent, as in fraud. But instead of stopping and slinking away, she threw away the shovel and went for the mine excavator to dig deeper than the Marianas Trench, despite everyone on her side begging and pleading with her to stop. And this shrill, shrieking shrew is allegedly a top contender for the 2020 Dem prexy slot. Or was. No reason to go on and on about this own-goal of epic proportions, but I'll end it by saying when Orrin Hatch pwns you, that should tell you something.

    And this comes on the heels of the Bollard that ate Chappaqua spewing that her husband should not have resigned over the Lewinsky scandal because it was not an abuse of power. You'd think that after a humiliating defeat at the hands of Donald Trump she'd just slink away to plot the coup against him in silence. But no, the TV cameras are as powerful an addiction as a swimming pool full of the Everclear/Sterno/Aqua Velva that she chugs. I'm sure the Dems appreciate her whoring for the cameras with this 3 weeks before the midterms as much as Bill does for exposing (phrasing) him to an entire new generation of low-info youth and others to the scandals that the media has covered up rather effectively for the past 20 years.

    To cap it all off, Project Veritas has once again struck, this time catching the Senator from the great state of St. Louis and her staff admitting that to be open and honest about their desire to destroy the second amendment would be political suicide, and lastly Dan Bongino on how President Trump completely owned Lesley Stahl this past Sunday on 60 Minutes.

    With all of this really on the heels of the huge victory over the Democrat-Media smear machine in confirming Brett Kavanaugh, at the risk of being repetitive, this is not very good for the Democrats as the finish line to the Midterms comes into view. And then there's this Beto O'Rourke. Evidently, he has amassed something like $38 million dollars for his campaign war chest, and all of it is going to be wasted since, by all honest accounts, he will more than likely lose and handily to incumbent Ted Cruz. As a side note, the President has announced he is traveling to Texas for a big campaign rally with Cruz in Houston. In any event, with the Senate in doubt for the Dems now, a number of candidates sure could use some of that cash to which Beto has responded FOAD.

    Moving on to more serious matters, a hazmat team was dispatched to Susan Collins' home because of a suspicious envelope, Antifa Maoists are leaving severed pig heads at campaign offices in Texas (where the hell is McSnoozerson?!), and Sen. Perdue's office is pushing back on the snatched cell phone kerfuffle and propaganda about the incident.

    In politics, McSally hits Sinema with a treason charge, Greenfield on Planned Parenthood endorsing Senator Woman-Biter and Bob Casey is pulling that horrendous smear TV ad against Lou Barletta but only in the latter's home market. And speaking of the media, PDT's approval is likely much better than is being told and less than half the public now trust the media. And still they persist.

    In coup news, James Wolfe, the Senate staffer who leaked classified info, plead guilty, Carter Page is suing the DNC and Perkins Coie over the "dossier" and AG Sessionszzz rips rogue judges.

    On the international scene, the President has dispatched SoS Pompeo to Saudi Arabia to get a handle on this Khashoggi business, the Federalist has 10 questions to ask before swallowing the MFM official story and things are heating up with Hamas and Israel. Possibly related to the Khashoggi disappearance? At least Israel knows the US has its back.

    Domestically, a couple of interesting takes on SCOTUS vis a vis as a rogue legislative entity, Ben Carson on loosening restrictions on development to ease the cost of housing, and AG McSnoozerson is on the warpath... against gangs. You may want to take a look at what's going on in Portland, Jeff. Sheesh. We also look at the economy and PDT's North American trade triumph, Sears goes Chapter 11, public unions are floundering (good), and the minimum wage is a prosperity killer.

    From hither and yon, the Cultural Revolutionaries want to replace Clarence Thomas' name on a school building at SCAD with, get this, Anita Hill's, Gloria Steinem's covering up a rape, a piece about another aspect of the dissolution of the American family and lastly 40 years on from the Jim Jones nightmare and the shooting of Harvey Milk. Funny how those two coincided with the rise of Chi-Com Dianne Feinstein.

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

    Krysten Sinema Summoned... Witches

    —Ace of Spades

    It had to end here.

    The Democrats are all so normal and non-insane, it's unbelievable.

    Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, is not a witch. But she has been known to hang out with witches. It was during the height of the Iraq War when Sinema, then a far-left protest organizer, summoned supernatural help to stop the Iraq War.

    Emails obtained by the Washington Examiner show Sinema inviting a prominent group of feminist witches in Arizona called Pagan Cluster to celebrate International Women’s Day and to protest the war in March of 2003. Code Pink protesters wore pink, obviously enough, and the Women in Black wore black. But Sinema encouraged the witches to wear "colorful clothing and come ready to dance, twirl, and stay in touch with your inner creativity and with the Earth."

    The Sinema campaign would not say why she invited the witches or clarify why she thought members of the occult deserved a seat at the table during discussions concerning war and peace. The witches in question, it should be noted, claim to practice only nonviolent magic. Per the about section on their webpage, theirs is a peaceful and democratic kind of sorcery.

    Out of the broom closet and into the public square, the Pagan Cluster focuses "sharing spiritual insights and participating in direct democracy." Their visions are decidedly liberal and many of their coven "have roots in the Reclaiming Tradition of feminist Witchcraft."
