    Trump Establishes Voter Fraud Commission

    President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Thursday creating a commission aimed at investigating alleged vote fraud — a move that drew swift rebuke from civil liberty groups and liberal lawmakers amid worries the panel’s work could seek to justify voter suppression.

    Trump’s order establishes a commission to review alleged voter fraud throughout the American election system. Vice President Mike Pence will head the group, called the “Presidential Commission on Election Integrity.”

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, an immigration hardliner and strict voter identification law advocate mulling a gubernatorial run, will serve as vice chair.

    The panel will be tasked with studying “vulnerabilities” in the voting system, as well as potential impacts on “improper voting, fraudulent voter registrations, and fraudulent voting.”

      Good morning. The Progressive mind is a wonder to behold. ” Trump collaborated with the Russians” without a scintilla of evidence. Bob Beckel actually said that the suspicion is justified because there is an investigation.
      Got that? But there is no voter fraud! They want proof, but don’t investigate to find some proof.
      Everybody knows that fraud is rampant in Chicago, St. Louis and any city run by Democrats.

      This morning the Chicago Tribune has eight Op-Ed pieces attacking Trump, one attacking Ivanka, and one attacking
      Spicer. Pro Trump pices ? None, but don’tbquestion Media objectivity..

      There are too many instances to excerpt here, but if you read the context this report is wrapped in, it can be summarized as ‘Trump is trying to disenfranchise minority voters by looking for non-existent fraud he’s been lying about since the election”.

      It’s still the “How the hell did we lose to this asshole” trauma in full plumage

      Maria Bartoromo has a guy on selling raw milk door-to-door, citing peoples’ desire to go back ‘closer to nature’.

      People, PLEASE DON’T DO THIS. You know Hubby was born and raised on a dairy farm and shoved his own cows for years. You could hold a gun to his head and he will not touch raw milk.

      I know the arguments, especially the ones “I’ve been drinking the stuff for 30 yrs, blah blah blah” and all that says is that you’ve been lucky. Or I drank it straight from my grandma’s cow or whatever. My father did just that when he was 10 – 1925, literally from his grandma’s cow – and nearly died from ungulate fever.

      I am astonished when people cite what was done 3 generations ago as something untainted and pure, but can’t figure out that the life expectancy in 1900 was something like 45. Gah

      Don’t.

      I blame things like seat belts, air bags, and all those warning labels they plaster on everything.

      In 1900, the stupid people killed themselves off before they were able to breed.

      Irony alert:

      Mexicans Are Upset About Immigrants Bringing Crime To Their City

      Residents of a Mexican city are upset about immigrants causing crime, according to a Tuesday report from El Universal.

      The report said that there was a press conference held in Tapachula by a leader of a local group called: “For a different Mexico.” The group’s president, Victorino Alvarez Fuentes, said that immigrants were urinating in public and sexually assaulting women and minors.

      Tapachula is near the Guatemalan border and besides immigrants from Central American countries, there has been a recent influx of African immigrants entering Mexico seeking to eventually get to the U.S.

      The El Universal story centered around a home for immigrants called “Bethlehem,” and said just a couple weeks ago an immigrant staying there was arrested for sexually assaulting a five-year-old boy.

      Did anyone see the Keith Olberdork call for foreign intelligence agencies to assist HIM in overthrowing Trump. This guy has completely gone off the rails. In essence, he has issued an internet appeal that technically violates 18 USC 2381 et.seq.

      Olberdork is seriously mentally ill. If GQ has any sense at all, they will dump this clown NOW.

      @ Deplorable Barbarian:

      The only difference between Olberman and the rest of the MSM is that he’s open about it. They ALL think they are masters of the universe, insiders privy to knowledge and wisdom the rest of us plebes are excluded from. “Fake but accurate” is their equivalent of ‘Amen’. Dan Rather wasn’t drummed out because he lied and forged, he was drummed out because he got caught.


    10. 10 | May 12, 2017 10:55 am

      @ eaglesoars:

      Remember how they gave him a “Lifetime of Service” testimonial dinner afterward. Geez, the guy was caught, red-handed, using forged documents to try to influence the outcome of a Presidential election and the media was mourning his firing like there had been a death in the family. They completely ignored the fact that CBS/Rather/Mapes had been colluding with the Kerry campaign about this story – in fact, the Kerry camp had an ad ready to go on the TANG memos that they had to scrap.

      Meanwhile, these same dirtbags are screaming and yelling about so-called RUSSIAN interference.

      Once upon a time, there was a job called ‘foreign correspondent’. These people got assigned an area of the world and lived there for years. There have been books written by people whose area was Moscow. It wasn’t fun, it wasn’t pretty, but they knew people and they knew STUFF. Now, they get invited to lunch at some restaurant in Geotwn by some KGB flunky at the embassy, end up paying for it on their own expense account, and walk out believing they have a clue. If you asked ANY of them which directorate has the counterintelligence mandate, they’d ask you what a directorate is.

      I remember when Obama kicked some Russians out not long before his term ended – big brouhaha – and there were tons of stories about their ‘mansion’ on the Chesapeake that was all news to them. People in the neighborhhod have known those Russians for years, delivered their booze, yada yada. It’s not like it was on another planet – unless you’re a ‘journalist’.

      Is Joe Scarborough The Next Keith Olbermann?

      Scarborough began with an 8 minute rant trying to make the case that Comey was fired because he wanted to expand the FBI’s investigation into Russian espionage during last year’s election based on an anonymous allegation in a New York Times story.
      []
      The only problem with Scarborough’s analysis is that it isn’t true
      []
      But he continued, arguing that if the Senate doesn’t “grill McCabe” and give the FBI every penny that Comey allegedly requested “that this is a constitutional crisis.”
      []
      Scarborough may have forgotten that spending bills originate in the House of Representatives where he once served.

      ouch

      OT, posted this on the dead thread too late last night —
      I posted this at WZ as well. This could be an interesting thread.

      OT: Apparently this is a thing:
      https://www.gvsu.edu/cms4/a

      http://peopleofficeplaces.c

      I love the “story” at the end of the first one. Apparently they are getting pretty low quality straw men. That argument is so easy to shred it’s not funny.

      So let’s shred that stupid “dialogue” in the first link:

      Our Message, In Story Form

      Our message/story addresses multiple concerns in order to address various concerns. A typical conversation/class presentation goes a little like this:

      Sustainability Champion:

      Did you know that our recycling goes to the Holland Rescue Mission? The sorting becomes part of their job training program and the profits go to keep their programming going. For that reason (and because we’re committed to sustainability), we’ve implemented centralized hubs with bins around campus.

      Other – Student, Faculty, Staff (nodding):

      Cool. (everyone typically agrees with the first part)

      Person with two brain cells to rub together: That’s nice, how much does that “donation” cost the campus in terms of additional time, work, and effort?

      Champion:

      And in order to encourage everyone to make responsible choices (so that we can optimize our donations to the Rescue Mission), we’ve also removed trash containers from individual offices and classrooms around campus”

      Other (looking confused/concerned/perplexed/bewildered)

      What? No way. You couldn’t have. Why? Where am I supposed to put my trash?

      Person with two brain cells to rub together: Well, that’s a dumb@$$ thing to do. How much productive time is going to be required for someone to throw away a tissue or food wrapper? How much disruption of workflow and thought processes is this going to induce? … or are you expecting that people will either turn their offices into trash dumps or improvise their own trash containers so they can work productively? Since, that, after all is really supposed to be our end product, not recycle product

      Champion (gently, perhaps with a twinge of sarcasm):

      You can put it in the centralized hubs … best practices show that when individuals are presented with options, they make good decisions… so we wanted to make sure that each time you went to throw something away, you were presented with the best options so you could make the best choice.

      Other:

      I always recycle! I put paper into the blue bins, try to put bottles into the recycling and then put everything else into the trash…

      Person with two brain cells to rub together: You really are a smug, condescending scrunt, aren’t you? You seem to be mistaking a cause with the real end-goal of our organization. Interrupting people’s work for what is essentially cents or tenths of a cent worth of trash seems somewhat counter-productive, don’t you think?

      Champion:

      I’m sure you do… but not everyone does… we did a dumpster dive…

      Other: (intrigued, possibly disgusted) What?!?!

      Person with two brain cells to rub together: Well good for you

      Champion:

      Yes, a student and faculty volunteered to sort through the dumpster to see how things were being disposed. Turns out that about 90% of what was bound for the landfill could have been composted or recycled.

      Other:

      Wow. That’s a lot… (making connections) and it could have been going to the Mission.

      Person with two brain cells to rub together: So, did you really do that, or are you just making @#$% up just like most people on your side of the political aisle do?

      Champion:

      Yeah, and after we took away the trash cans, we waited 4 weeks and did another dive. Turns out that the second time, only 20% or so could have been recycled or composted.

      Other: (recognizing the value, but reluctant to change behavior) Hmmmpph… Doesn’t my tuition pay for a janitor to take care of my trash?

      Person with two brain cells to rub together: So, how much additional work was required by the people doing that? How much productivity was lost, how much was that recycle worth compared to the lost productivity and unintended consequences? Did you even think to measure that?

      Champion:

      We’re trying to keep tuition down, and this not only allows us to take responsibility, but also is a cost saving measure because our janitorial staff does not have to empty as many bags. It also saves money because we don’t have to buy as many bags, and …

      Other: (sensing no way out) OK

      Person with two brain cells to rub together: Oh, so that means you are going to be laying off janitorial staff since you won’t need as many? How do they feel about that. So, how do the cost in bags compare to the lost productivity I keep asking about? … and you are OK with paying professional wages to people to remove their own trash?

      Other here seems to be a wilting snowflake

      Breaking on Fox News:

      This is supposedly the Trump short list for Comey replacements:

      According to the White House official, the candidates include:

      Ray Kelly, the former and longest-serving New York City police commissioner

      Mike Rogers, former House Intelligence Committee chairman and former FBI agent

      Former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher

      Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.

      Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas

      Paul Abbate, executive assistant director for the Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch

      Former New York prosecutor Mike Garcia

      Mayor of Colorado Springs John Suthers

      Former federal appellate court Judge Michael Luttig, now executive vice president of Boeing

      Larry Thompson, former deputy attorney general under President George W. Bush

      Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe

      Of all of them, I like Gowdy best personally, but think we’re better off with him in the House.

      I like Andrew McCarthy but he isn’t on the list

      And NO to McHabe. I think while he gave excellent testimony before the Senate yesterday, I wouldn’t trust that snake as far as I could throw him. He’d get the job and immediately work overtime to protect Democrats. Besides, isn’t HE under investigation for conflict of interest?

      @ eaglesoars:

      There are rumblings that Kennedy might be retiring (he said he would not do so in the past because he did not want Obama to appoint his successor) so he might still make it to SCOTUS (and the DumDumDems can’t do a damn thing to stop it!) and God knows Buzzy Ginsberg is seriously on her last legs. Maybe get Luttig into the Bureau for the time being and then move him to SCOTUS when the time comes. That would give them some breathing room to do a real hunt – and my No. 1 is still McCarthy.

      Wouldn’t that be sweet? A 6-3 majority? Hell, maybe we can send that judicial fraud Kagan running for Harvard and her “safe space.”

We are harming developing countries by producing so much oil, it’s unfair to those emerging countries because they can’t make enough extortionary profit from their supplies, they are being undercut by the big bad USA

      Aussie, where art thou???

      In the course of researching No Higher Power: Obama’s War on Religious Freedom, I learned that the late Chicago cardinal Joseph Bernardin helped pay for the education of Barack Obama in Saul Alinsky’s ruthless tactics. A forerunner to Pope Francis, Bernardin was a devious socialist who poured the faithful’s money into the pockets of the hard left. No Higher Power contained a copy of the check — a source excavated it from the archives of the archdiocese of Chicago and gave it to me — proving that Bernardin had financed Obama’s trip to a training seminar in California organized by Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF).

      Never heard of the book, will have to get it.

      On Tuesday, while visiting Barnes and Noble, I noticed David Garrow’s new mammoth biography on Barack Obama, Rising Star. It is so big readers may need a wheel-barrel to bring it home. Curious to see if Garrow grappled with the issue of Obama-Bernardin collusion, I cracked it open up and discovered that he not only engages the subject but uses my scoop as one of the primary sources for it (see page 1147). He confirms the account in No Higher Power. (He also confirms its appendices, which included a letter showing that the bishop of Gary, Indiana, acting under the direction of Bernardin, urged his priests to work with Obama. Garrow references that letter in the book.)

      have to get that book, too.

      For the musicians and music lovers: Da Vinci invented an instrument that was never built. Until now.

      Rather than tapping the strings, as a harpsichord would, this instrument, called the viola organista, lowers the strings onto spinning wheels which are wrapped in horse hair. This acts as a bow would on a violin. The resulting sound gives the impression of a group of string instruments. The project took Zubrzycki 3 years and 5,000 hours to complete.

      CW, did you know of this person?

      William J. Baumol, 95, ‘One of the Great Economists of His Generation,’ Dies

      Professor Baumol, who taught for decades at both Princeton University and New York University, identified what has come to be known as Baumol’s cost disease. This so-called affliction is actually a critically important economic insight that explains why the cost of services, like haircuts and college educations, rises faster than the cost of goods, like T-shirts.
      []
      It was in 1965 that Professor Baumol began explaining how technological advances raise productivity and naturally push up wages as workers are able to produce more goods, from hammers to coffee cups, at lower cost.
      Continue reading the main story

      But those same increases in productivity, he found, do not apply to labor-intensive activities like concert performances, doctor examinations, college lectures, soccer matches and oil changes.

      For example, he said, it takes exactly the same number of people and the same amount of time to play a Beethoven string quartet today as it did in, say, 1817. Yet the musicians who spent years studying and practicing — and still have to eat and live somewhere while doing that — cannot be paid the same as their 19th-century counterparts. Their wages, too, will rise, even though they are no more productive than their predecessors were. As a result, their work eventually becomes increasingly expensive compared with more efficiently produced goods.

      There is no cure for the cost disease

      One from Joe’s side project, Black Country Communion:

      Black Country Communion is an English-American hard rock band based in Los Angeles, California. Formed in 2009, the band is a supergroup composed of bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes, guitarist and vocalist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham and keyboardist Derek Sherinian. Originally formed by Hughes and Bonamassa with the help of producer Kevin Shirley, the group released its self-titled debut album in September 2010. Second album Black Country Communion 2 followed in June 2011, which was promoted on a European tour later in the year. The band released its third (and to date latest) album Afterglow in October 2012.

      Following an impromptu performance together in Los Angeles, Hughes and Bonamassa started the side project in November 2009, recruiting Bonham and Sherinian on the advice of Shirley to finalise the lineup of the band. The name Black Country Communion is derived from the term Black Country, which refers to the West Midlands area of England where Hughes and Bonham grew up. The group’s sound is intentionally reminiscent of popular classic rock groups of the 1970s, reflecting the previous work of frontman Hughes (in bands such as Trapeze and Deep Purple) as well as the link between Bonham and his father John’s band Led Zeppelin.

      It makes target selection a breeze.

      Look to those who are attempting to manufacture propaganda pieces and use all your power to destroy them. It is really as simple as that.

      These progressive folks seem to believe that they are fighting a one sided war. A Cild Civil War where they are able to hide behind excuses whilst waging unremitting warfare against their enemies.

      That has got to change and every time some Progressive arsehole puts his head above the parapet he gets figuratively shot between the eyes.

      The conservative side of the equation needs heavy counter-battery fire to suppress and attrit the enemy.

      Maria Bartoromo has a guy on selling raw milk door-to-door, citing peoples’ desire to go back ‘closer to nature’.

      People, PLEASE DON’T DO THIS. You know Hubby was born and raised on a dairy farm and shoved his own cows for years. You could hold a gun to his head and he will not touch raw milk.

      I know the arguments, especially the ones “I’ve been drinking the stuff for 30 yrs, blah blah blah” and all that says is that you’ve been lucky. Or I drank it straight from my grandma’s cow or whatever. My father did just that when he was 10 – 1925, literally from his grandma’s cow – and nearly died from ungulate fever.

      I am astonished when people cite what was done 3 generations ago as something untainted and pure, but can’t figure out that the life expectancy in 1900 was something like 45. Gah

      Don’t.

      If you hanker getting back to ‘nature’ in the raw.

      Try milking a wild cow.

      Get back to me with that from hospital

      I blame things like seat belts, air bags, and all those warning labels they plaster on everything.

      In 1900, the stupid people killed themselves off before they were able to breed.

      Darwin knew a thing or two!

      🙂

      The Annual Darwin Awards should be properly developed into a media frenzy where the idiots of the world kill themselves in the most exotic and unusual ways.

      It might be instructive to the herd to be aware that they are NOT living in a Disneyland environment where outcomes are always programmed to turn out ‘nice’

      :

      Then again maybe we should thin out the herd a little by just letting them kill themselves in innovative ways.

      Pass the popcorn

      For the musicians and music lovers: Da Vinci invented an instrument that was never built. Until now.

      Rather than tapping the strings, as a harpsichord would, this instrument, called the viola organista, lowers the strings onto spinning wheels which are wrapped in horse hair. This acts as a bow would on a violin. The resulting sound gives the impression of a group of string instruments. The project took Zubrzycki 3 years and 5,000 hours to complete.

      Listen to the viola organista

      That is exceedingly cool. Thanks for posting that. I’m surprised it only took him 5000 hours to complete something like that.

      This was actually started by an entertainer named Steve Allen. He founded The Tonight Show in 1954. He developed a show called Meeting of Minds where actors would play people from history and discuss politics, etc. So yeah, invite Julia Child and Escoffier and whoever invented ramen noodles.

      I haven’t eaten a Skittle in probably 15 years. Hopefully this advertising doesn’t lead to an increase in sales.

      I like the ostrich ad because it: a)Successfully conveys the message – you can do the impossible with our product, b) It alienates nobody along political – racial-sexual lines, and c) it follows a short but easy dramatic script.

      Seriously, it’s a great ad. WAY better than anything aired during the Super Bowl.

      It really is a great ad. Terrifically creative, sells what the product does in a unique way — this will be one of those ads that they show to aspiring marketing writers as a terrific example

      Sadly, I like Skittles, much better than peanut M&M’s and close to chocolate M&M’s. Guess I’ll be needing to increase my love for Chocolate M&M’s cause I’m not buying Skittles for a while now

      Dude, I grew up on as farm, I milked 200 cows every morning before going to school and again when I got home from school. I am not joking. Between the ages of 9 and 11 my best friends family owned a Dairy and I earned 2 dollars a day working there.
