    …Let’s just say, for those of us who have been demeaned by some NeverTrumpers, and who have called out their harsh rhetoric and destructive agenda, it was gratifying to watch this play out. Not only is it time for anti-Trump conservatives to acknowledge this president’s bold and conservative-friendly presidency so far, it is time to call bullshit on those who refuse to do so. Admitting you were wrong—or at least mistaken in your assessment of both the electorate and a president—is never easy. But holding on to a dishonest narrative that a president—who is now doing things that alleged “conservatives” once proclaimed to be among their objectives—is somehow working to undermine those goals, is not being conservative. In fact, it’s just lying.

    I suspect all of this is related to the fact that people who fancy themselves smarter than the rest of us—I am looking at you, Tom Nichols—were flat wrong about Trump. They continue to say “we knew who Trump was all along.” Did you really? Did you expect he would govern the way he has? Did you anticipate the massive regulatory rollback, the conservative judicial picks, the snubbing of the global aristocracy, the strong Cabinet choices, the push for energy independence? Did you expect he would expose the appalling lack of integrity in the nation’s media, or usher in frightening revelations about a wholly corrupt Obama Administration, which many NeverTrumpers blatantly ignore?

    Here, I’ll answer for you: No, you did not. So perhaps we “Bubbas” who you think fell for “boob bait” (as people such as Rubin and Kristol so eruditely like to put it) knew something you didn’t. Maybe, despite your credentials and advanced degrees and Beltway influence, you were blind to something that the folks out here in flyover country detected about Trump. You were wrong, and you refuse to admit it.

    A good week for the president, his voters, and the country. A bad week for the NeverTrump sore losers who keep digging a hole that will be tough—if not impossible—to climb out of. Happy to toss them a rope, though, when the apologies come….

      Happy Boxing Day everyone! Or should that be Wrestling Day?
      Today I begin the Chemo process…with an education class. Port goes in on January 2, and I’m pretty sure the actual first Chemo session will be on January 5, since the oncologist I work with is in the office on Tuesdays and Fridays.
      And I’m gonna have to take my MacBook Pro with me, since I’d be distracted by my iPad because it has SimCity on it! I’ll be OK though. God will be with me, as well as the praysers from so many people!

      A short week this week. Test today, and assuming I pass I THINK I’ll be learning the quality part of the job tomorrow & Thursday while everyone else in class takes calls.

      We’re off on Friday and AFAIK I’ll be off on Saturday while they take calls too.

      Ramp up starts on Tuesday with the start of tax season.

      Better half is off all week, and the plan is to see Star Wars on Sunday with a co-worker & her husband.

      Saw it a couple of days ago. Its amazingly… mediocre. Not actually bad per say, but not anything special. “Bright” was actually quiet a bit better. Despite Will Smith’s ridiculous “Scientology” farce of a religion, which he does manage to not speak much of, he usually produces very entertaining movies.

      Haven’t seen it yet, though it is on the list. My prayers are with you, hoping your Chemo goes well. Only one suggestion for you with regards to your Chemo, if you can schedule it close to night time, everything I have read suggests that it is less exhausting if it is done at night, so that you can sleep after it is administered. Has something to do with the fact that during nocturnes,(the normal diurnal sleep cycle) most of your bodies systems shut down and are therefore less negatively impacted by the Chemo.

      yeppers!

      In contrast to the article CW posted about Trumps’s successes, you might enjoy this. I assure you, hilarity will ensue. It was written for Foreign Policy mag and exemplifies a mental disorder than warms the cockles of my heart – or would, if I had one. Delicious passages such as:

      It is, of course, our president who finds in smoking entrails the proof of future greatness and prosperity. The reduction of all disagreeable facts and narratives to “fake news” will stand as one of Donald Trump’s most lasting contributions to American culture, far outliving his own tenure. He has, in effect, pressed gerrymandering into the cognitive realm. Your story fights my story; if I can enlist more people on the side of my story, I own the truth. And yet Trump is as much symptom as cause of our national disorder. The Washington Post recently reported that officials at the Center for Disease Control were ordered not to use words like “science-based,” apparently now regarded as disablingly left-leaning. But further reporting in the New York Times appears to show that the order came not from White House flunkies but from officials worried that Congress would reject funding proposals marred by the offensive terms. One of our two national political parties — and its supporters — now regards “science” as a fighting word. Where is our Robert Musil, our pitiless satirist and moralist, when we need him (or her)?

      Never mind that the entirety of the CDC forbidden words story was completely debunked before this was written, I seem to remember when jihadi attacks had to me referred to as ‘man made disasters’.

      have fun while we all observe:

      oh man. Karma is a bitch on 4 legs.

      The woman who lost her 1st class seat to Sheila I’m A Queen is hard core and isn’t about to be intimidated by a word like ‘racist’

      The woman Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee accused of racism is a celebrated photojournalist who helped document human-rights abuses in war-torn Guatemala during the 1980s.

      Jean-Marie Simon, whose first-class seat on a United Airlines flight was given to Ms. Jackson Lee, Texas Democrat, lived and worked in Guatemala during the turbulent decade that saw the military seize control of the government in a coup. Hundreds of thousands of Guatemalans were killed or “disappeared” during the conflict.

      Now a teacher, Ms. Simon, 63, is the author of “Guatemala: Eternal Spring Eternal Tyranny.” A 2012 blog post on Amnesty International saidMs. Simon donated 1,000 copies of her book to schools and universities in Guatemala “to keep the truth of what happened alive.”

      It’s time we started taking people out and shooting them at noon at Lafayette Park.

      The security clearances for the Awans were forged. And it looks like the 3rd party company that was used for background checks, etc., never actually did the work

      FBI insiders used the word “forged” to describe the process of what happened to the Awan files. Federal law enforcement sources with knowledge of the case divulged:

      Either someone with clout in Congress, or higher, made sure the Awans received their security clearances despite glaring problems or the investigators pushed their files through for approval as part of a systemic breakdown.
      Many assertions in the Awan-linked applications and files could not be verified by subsequent FBI vetting as part of the criminal case now pending against Imran and Hina. The files are problematic, FBI sources said.

      Two tech entrepreneurs, including a man who invested in the film studio that made the “Twilight” movies, were convicted of fraud on Tuesday in New York.

      A federal jury convicted Kaleil Isaza Tuzman, 45, and Omar Amanat, 44, of all charges after a six-week trial.

      The convictions stemmed from the men’s role in the technology startup Kit Digital.

      CW, anybody…what IS this apoplexy over carried interest? As I understand it – and I will be corrected if needed, I trust – a partner who has NOT invested in a fund that realizes a profit can be compensated with some of those profits as part of his/her income. I also understand that the fund is owned by the company the partner works for and is not a fund managed for clients.

      Is that right? So, why is everybody acting like there’s some sort of moral outrage? What’s the difference in the taxable rates?

      I’m confused.

      I’ll take what’s behind door #1. Investigators do not push files through when there is a glaring problem. What happens is that the clearance application goes to the bottom of the stack after a request for more information is sent to the requesting organization.

      They did at USIS. That’s why they went out of business:

      Among many failures, the IG found OPM had no way or verifying if all components of each applicant’s security clearance file had been vetted. One company, USIS which likely conducted the majority of Awan background sweeps for Congress, was caught forcing through thousands of security clearance cases without having examined their contents, the report shows. One USIS investigator approved over 15,000 case files in one month “with most of these occurring within minutes of each other on multiple days,” according to the report. USIS conducted clearance sweeps for OPM until late 2014 when the businesses folded.

      I actually applied for a job with them once. Glad I didn’t get it.

      @ AZfederalist:

      USIS was the biggest contractor doing clearance investigations for the government.

      They were shut down following some spectacular failures, like the Navy Yard shooter.


    46. lobo91
      46 | December 27, 2017 7:48 pm

      Former FBI McMahon said USIS forged as many as 665,000 federal security clearances.

      McMahon has been trying to meet with President Donald Trump to discuss ways to seal the dangerous trap doors in government background checks.

      “If the FBI had fixed the name check issues when I blew the whistle and held those responsible publicly accountable while in FBI during 2008 to 2009 or thereafter, I believe Navy Yard killer, Riverside killers, Mr. Manning, Mr. Snowden and the 665,000 falsified USIS background checks might never had occurred,” he said.

      Keep this in mind next time the Dems start whining about “universal background checks” for gun sales…

      The Anatomy Of Hillary Clinton’s $84 Million Money-Laundering Scheme

      Was it against the law? Donna Brazille certainly thought so and she talked about it quite a bit in her book. As a matter of fact, one way to read her book is as a get-ahead-of-the-law “I’m innocent” manifesto.

      Sheryl Atkkinssen recently brought attention to the tens of millions Tom Steyer has spent/been spending.

      Has anyone else noticed anything about all this?

      All that money was for naught. It may have bought some votes, but not nearly enough.

      I wonder now, with the media outlets far less concentrated than they used to be, if money has lost the impact it once had because there are just too many targets to focus on.

      It was against the law, but only FEC violations.

      The campaign and/or DNC could be fined, but that’s it. No criminal penalties that I’m aware of (unless some enterprising prosecutor could come up with racketeering charges or something).

      Women need to learn how to throw a punch and then do it. Leave the cops out of it.

      Easier said than done going on the pattycake punch throwing that I see at the gym by BOTH guys and gals but especially gals. Then there is one gym lady who actually uses her hips and shoulder to deliver. She regularly terrorises the heavy bag. There is no reason why a woman can’t learn how to deliver a serious strike and make it count. You only need one serious punch and that’s enough to allow you to leave the scene. Of most of the faux- asian styles that promise much but are all flash and show, the Israelis provide a basic effective training system on how to deliver a punch and where to deliver it. It’s the WHERE that allows a punch to be effective when one is fighting to injure and not as some sort of sport counting system of delivered blows. Remember ladies that you only need ONE full on strike delivered with determination , aggression and malice that will drop 90% of males and allow you to walk away quickly. Most makes just don’t imagine what is possible and are therefore totally open to a targeted strike. Begin with eyes, throat and balls ladies and go from there!

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      Dad taught me. When I was 10. Because that little prick Rickie Frazier kept throwing my skirt over my head during recess. So I knocked his teeth out (yes, I did) like he taught me and promptly got thrown out of school. Until my father stormed in and demanded to know who the hell was going to protect them from HIM when they couldn’t protect a little girl from a bully.

      And we never saw hide nor hair of that little prick Rickie again.

      I’ve trained some since then and of course the height and weight differences/advantages are much different than they were when we were 10. A punch to the face against someone w/8 inches on me would be problematic. Not to mention, I’m trying to break HIS bones, not my knuckles.

      Mark taught me some other handy stuff a small woman can use, tho.

      None of this matters without the father. I listen to women today and realize their dads were very different from mine, who expected that I would get in some bad spots and tried to prepare me for them. Cops don’t enter the picture until clean up.

      Number of cops killed near 50-year low in Trump’s first year
      President Donald Trump’s first year in office has coincided with a near 50-year low in a very grim statistic: The number of police officers killed in the line of duty.

      A report from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, shows that 128 officers died in 2017. That number is a 10 percent decrease from 2016, when 141 officers were killed while wearing the badge.

      In fact, the number of officers killed in the line of duty had been on the rise for the past three consecutive years. The steady rise in police deaths coincided with the Black Lives Matter movement that arose after several high-profile incidents between law enforcement and African-American suspects.

      President Obama sympathized with the Black Lives Matter movement and even honored the leaders of the controversial group with invitations to the White House.

      President Trump, on the other hand, focused much of his 2016 presidential campaign on the topic and promised to “restore law and order for all Americans” and criticized Obama and Hillary Clinton’s embrace of Black Lives Matter.

      Randy Sutton, a spokesman for Blue Lives Matter, a group advocating for officers’ rights, told UPI that he believes the decrease may be attributed to cops’ reluctance to engage with suspects.

      “There’s a saying in law enforcement: You can’t get in trouble for the car stop you don’t make,” Sutton said. “They don’t want to be the next Ferguson, the next officer burned on the stake.”

      The 2017 death toll is the lowest in 50 years except for 2013 when 113 cops were killed. The Black Lives Matter movement began the next year.

      Pretty sure if his folks lived just a little further north he would have been shoveling closer to 240 metric tons.

      A storm that has dumped more than 65 inches (165 cms) of snow this week on Erie, Pennsylvania, is expected to slightly taper off on Wednesday after leaving drifts that buried cars, paralyzed the area and made the county declare an emergency.

      But the respite for Erie, a city of about 100,000 in northwest Pennsylvania on the shores of Lake Erie, is expected to be short-lived, with a fresh round of winter storms coming Thursday night predicted to bring as much as 10 inches more snow, forecasters said.

      https://ca.news.yahoo.com/erie-pennsylvania-pummeled-record-5-feet-snow-164237215.html

      They said 10 miles south of the city limits they barely got a third of that. Lake-effect is a bitch.

      Hubby’s family is suffering. Oswego/Fairhaven NY, Lake Ontario. It snows there in MAY sometimes. Not fun when you have to be up with the sun shoving cows. I think it’s around 5 there right now and the SIL says there’s some lake wind.

      When I was younger – back before God started making dirt – I thought I might want to live off the grid, in the woods somewhere where there aren’t many people. Alaska sounded good.

      There are moments I wish I’d done it. Then I watch Life Below Zero.

      Our Bailey is old, but still displaying her penchant for drama.

      She’ll be in the snow for her poop walk for a very short time and suddenly start lifting her paws and limping like she’s been shot, complete with sad looks, but when something happens to distract her in the middle of this she all of a sudden gains the ability to bark and run furiously with none of the symptoms previously displayed.

      I think this started happening when my wife felt sorry and started carrying her across the street…

      I should also mention, that one has to practice being in a fight. So many individuals will take a “self defense” course, and then never brush up on those skills. Then there is this attitude that certain martial arts classes are Exercise Class, where one is going to be in Adult Gym.

      A few days ago I read that dogs have the intelligence of a human 2 yr old.

      Try 5

      The other nite we were eating dinner in the family room to watch TV. I was at the coffee table. Willow went to the door to ask to go out on the deck, so I got up and opened it. No Willow. She’d ripped a 180 and nailed my plate.

      Also, dogs lie. And no, they don’t care.
