    let’s follow the reaction and coverage of the press and the politicians to Hurricane Florence and compare it with that of Hurricane Katrina.

    New Orleans is “Chocolate City” -Mayor Nagan’s Words, and heavily Democrat.

    NC and SC coastal areas are golf clubs and republican white bread. OF course, the press wont give a whit about the inland rural poor in the low-country/piedmont as they are conservative (black and white).

      Hiya Guys and Gals.

      Great news from Down Under.

      Grandson born this morning via emergence C-Section. Bonny little guy with blonde hair and big blue eyes. His mum had laboured marginally for 36 hours and nothing was happening and little Rohan was getting tired and distressed so the specialist decided that it was time to step in. Both the new Mum and her wee man are both well. Rohan took his first breath and then dozed off as he was tired. The new Dad is due around here for a late breakfast. Both he and his big brother, uncle Ben were chatting all night during proceedings. We are truly blessed. Aunty Bi-bi (going by her nickname given by Chloe #1 grandchild) will speak only Italian to Rohan so that he will be naturally bi-lingual as she did with Chloe. The Italian? She’s really good at it that’s all 🙂

      Great thanks and happiness in our whole family.

      🙂

      Since WaPo is behind a paywall, I’ll link to a story about WaPo’s hurricane coverage.

      Trump is ‘complicit’.

      Yet when it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters.

      wait. I’m confused. Didn’t somebody tell us that Jews control the weather? Some D.C. councilman or something?

      Beware of PBTech stores worldwide. They are Chinese tech sales and distribute tech enabled Chinese government surveillance cameras that down road to embedded online Chinese spy agencies.

      https://www.pbtech.co.nz/category/cameras/drones

      see most common make of drones stocked

      Nah…. just me being paranoid, move on, nothing to see here.

      … Another field in which a Chinese company is a global leader is consumer camera drones — the camera-toting quadcopters that have become increasingly ubiquitous.
      More than two out of every three consumer drones sold this year was made by Da-Jing Innovations, better known in the West as DJI.

      The company’s drones were increasingly being used by military and police forces around the world until August last year, when the US Army banned them due to “increased awareness of cyber vulnerabilities”.

      In the months leading up to the US ban there was reporting by security researchers that DJI was collecting audio, visual and telemetry data on every flight of every single one of their drones, and the potential for the Chinese Government to leverage that collection was significant.

      The Australian military responded to the US action within days, banning the drones.

      “There were some concerns regarding the cyber security characteristics of the device,” the deputy chief of information warfare, Major General Marcus Thompson, told a Senate hearing in October.

      The Australian military ban was lifted two weeks later following the introduction of “revised operating procedures”.

      Defence declined to describe those new procedures to the ABC.

      At the time of last year’s ban there were about 40 DJI drones reportedly in use by the Australian military.

      This is when I want to find somebody to hurt. That the Chinese will take/use every opportunity to spy should be taken as the default position.

      I mean, what exactly does it take to figure this out?

      One of my best friends got involved via the internet with a woman from the mainland who said she owned her own company and she was going to come visit him.

      If you knew him and his family connections, you’d understand why I pitched a screaming FIT. I’ll just say that his sister still works for the CIA and they are of Japanese ethnicity. My friend is the most politically naive person you will ever meet and he didn’t believe me. It took his sister to tell him “Not a good idea, Sparky” to put the kabosh on that.

      As much as I admire a great deal about their culture, I don’t trust those people as far as I can spit. They ARE the enemy. I’d trust an individual Russian before I would a Chinese.

      So if I get, I don’t know why our so-called ‘intelligence’ doesn’t.

      I know why.

      The guys and gals at the front line KNOW IT but their superiors (the higher and more remote from the day to day reality of the cyber war) still think in general terms that included trade and making money out of Chinese connections. The truck is separating the making money part from the loss of security part. Can’t be done in my estimation. ALWAY and eventually the Chinese will turn ANY association into a spying operation and an IP theft opportunity for themselves. Such is the reach of the Chinese security services operating as they do in a State tyranny where the rules are what they say they are!

      I was recently given a Chinese drone with camera capability by a Chinese commercial entity. I was suspicious and the drone ended up in a church jumble sale. Now the spooks in Building 101 in Shanghai can watch Mildred’s drone camera system hovering over her grandkids at the beach!

      Maybe I’m getting a little too paranoid but as a spy catcher mate once quoted someone …” You’re not necessarily paranoid as sometimes the bastards really are out to get you!”

      The senior members of the intelligence services are constrained by the other institutions of government who want to leverage anything they can into a money making / money saving situation. Compromises are made everyday and it almost always results in less security and more access to money making schemes.

      Such is human nature. The lower down you go in the intelligence services the greater the emphasis on security (because that’s their job) and the less emphasis on making dosh (because that doesn’t enter their world) except perhaps the Quartermaster general’s department looking for money saving technologies.

      Nagan was such a f*cking incompetent turd, but New Orleans was always a criminal, corrupt shit hole. Remember all those cops (IIRC about 180) who didn’t show up to work during Katrina— just to find out they didn’t exist, but their paychecks were cashed none-the-less. Yeah.

      I never heard much regarding what happened to residents during the hurricane and the aftermath– was it a rapefest hell hole at the stadium as claimed or was it pretty tame? Never got the verdict on that.

      well since this is trumps hurricane, I am so glad he is dialing it back

      Florence’s nighttime winds were down to 110 mph (175 kph) from a high of 140 mph (225 kph), and the Category 3 storm fell to a Category 2, with a further slow weakening expected as the storm nears the coast. But authorities warned it will still be an extremely dangerous hurricane.

      Au Contraire

      The WE means the Socialist Party of America. Google is not a Democrat liberal support company. It is a hard core Socialist / Chinese government supporting entity that facilitates the Chinese Communist Party in spying on and totally controlling the Chinese populous through Google and other American IT companies’ products and technologies. Already the Chinese tyrants of the CCP can track watch cross reference biodata files and allocate a citizen’s ‘reliability score’ in real time, as that unaware citizen walks down a street in Shanghai or any Chinese city.

      This no less than Google creating the IT tools of George Orwell’s fictional book 1984, that in 2018 has become all too real.

      Google is a socialist supporter of a Chinese fascist version of socialism with a blend of quasi liberal economic opportunities for the party compliant combined with the iron hand of communist dictatorship complete with slave labour camps (are you listening Nike) and massed murder.

      Behind the smiling face and propeller head hats, Google is a powerful powerful monopolistic tyranny that is challenging liberal democracy everywhere through the capture of information flows.

      The problem with this B.S. is that for a week they invoked Hazel the Hurricane from the 50s, which really was a strong storm, and now they’ve got what amounts to a tropical storm. No one will believe them anymore. They got out over their skis on this one. I just checked NOAA’s site, there’s a presser at 8:15 this morning.

      That was all rumor/myth. Bush got the blame for that mess when in reality it was Nagin (who is now in prison for something or other) and the loser governor, Kathleen Blanco.

      The evacuees turned out to be the problem. Houston’s crime problem just about doubled, surrounding areas (e.g. Lafayette) STILL can’t get rid of the little thugs who are now big thugs. WaPo started to run a day-by-day profile of a family that evac’d to the wife’s sister’s place in Silver Spring, MD. The wife was a physician,the husband a teacher. The wife was pregnant and all she did was moan about losing everything. Then it turned out they left their dog behind to drown. The husband got a part time job as a teacher’s assistant but was fired for smacking the snot out of the kids. The sympathy meter pegged to -minus 100 and suddenly there were no more articles.

      The Fifth Column Treasonous Marxist Propaganda Machine have fallen into their own trap. Believing their own propaganda that Trump is mentally damaged/retarded, evil, and just plain stupid, they believed they could over report the strength of the storm, and when the storm cause billions of dollars in damages, Trump’s being unprepared for the storm and his failure to provide a quick response could be used as a weapon against him for the Nov midterm elections.

      Trump, once again did not fall into their trap, but was on top of it from the get go. As a consequence, the media fell into their own trap.

      At the same time, the data underscores the lasting damage that the Great Recession did to the majority of American families. U.S. households are still earning essentially the same that they did in 2007 just before the Great Recession. And their inflation-adjusted median income remains slightly below the record in 1999 of $62,000, the Census Bureau said.

      I think the Fed downgraded growth projections from 4.2% to 3.8% today. Somebody was mewling about inflation but I was busy and didn’t really catch it.

      Speaking of globalization, I’m writing papers for my politically naive friend and the one I’m working on now is about global warming, globalization, etc. Do you have a source on the economic impact to the U.S. of ‘globalization’?

      So John Kerry has admitted to engaging in foreign negotiation to undermine the Presidency of Donald Trump with representatives of Iran.

      Secretary Pompeo should advise him that his U.S. Passport is revoked and DOJ should immediately begin an investigation into his violations of the Logan Act. Of course, that would mean Attorney General Keebler Elf would have to look up from his reports on MS-13 long enough to realize there are other crimes of a great nature taking place. God knows the Clinton Russia collusion has escaped him.

      True. Although I am hearing reports that the FBI/DOJ FISA warrant business IS being investigated. I’d like to see Rosenweasel, Comey, et al. prosecuted for the types of process crimes that Flynn and Papadopolous were hauled into court for. And watching Sally Yates wearing a pair of bracelets and doing a perp walk would be pure GOLD, since she advocated trying Flynn under the Logan Act and Kerry’s out there conducting subversive foreign policy.

      Let me look her up. Gloria Allred, of course, was disgraced over her representation of that woman in Alabama, who’s claims about the “diner” were very sketchy and Allred refused to turn over documents prior to the election for review by the press. I imagine they’re looking for a new hero to parade so-called victims around in the final hours.

      Why does she need representation? Statute of limitations has run out. Apparently the letter has been turned over to the White House. Feinstein needs to explain why she has been holding on to this information since JULY and why she has never shared with committee.

      Also, Kavanaugh has a right in any circumstance to face his accuser. Her grandstanding is deplorable and I see this completely blowing up in her face. Supposedly the FBI said “pffft” and gave the letter to the White House, who I hope leaks it. They don’t owe the letter writer ANY confidentiality.


    73. 78 | September 13, 2018 7:08 pm

      Katz pretty much seems to represent whistle-blowers. It may be that she agreed to represent her simply because she wanted to have a lawyer in the DC area in case she was called to testify. Katz doesn’t appear to be anything special, but I’m sure the media will inflate her C.V. and bona fides to make her appear the most powerful woman lawyer on the Eastern Seaboard and is here to protect this client from getting the “Anita Hill” treatment.

      thanks for the research, much appreciated. The blurb about Katz being a #metoo rep came from a Daily Mail article, I don’t know where they got it from.

      The timeline as suggested by your new info looks like:

      1. anon. allegation in letter to DiFi

      2. DiFi gives letter to FBI

      3. FBI investigates, finds nada, gives to WH.

      If DiFi has had this letter and the FBI and WH have had this letter, why hasn’t Grassley seen it? If the WH has it and Grassley doesn’t, has Kavanaugh seen it?

      Why is DiFi spewing this now if it’s already been put to rest?

      Feinstein got the letter from Anna Eschoo, a Congress Critter and Pelosi confidant. IN JULY. At no time did she question Kavanaugh about it or ask that the FBI make it part of the vetting process.

      My guess? The girl is going to say she didn’t consent to having sex with Kavanaugh when they were both in high school, essentially trying to imply that he “raped” her. Because teenagers just having consensual sex in high school has been around since….well, forever.

      A source who said they were briefed on the contents of the letter said it described an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman that took place when both were 17 years old and at a party. According to the source, Kavanaugh and a male friend had locked her in a room against her will, making her feel threatened, but she was able to get out of the room. The Guardian has not verified the apparent claims in the letter. It is not yet clear who wrote it.

      isn’t clear what side of the door Kavanaugh was on

      109 | September 14, 2018 12:19 am

      @ yenta-fada:

      Ah, time for an oldie but goodie:

      Dr. Schambaugh, of the University of Oklahoma School of Chemical Engineering, Final Exam question for May of 1997. Dr. Schambaugh is known for asking questions such as, “why do airplanes fly?” on his final exams. His one and only final exam question in May 1997 for his Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer II class was: “Is hell exothermic or endothermic? Support your answer with proof.”

      Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following:

      “First, We postulate that if souls exist, then they must have some mass. If they do, then a mole of souls can also have a mass. So, at what rate are souls moving into hell and at what rate are souls leaving? I think we can safely assume that once a soul gets to hell, it will not leave.

      Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for souls entering hell, let’s look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, then you will go to hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and souls go to hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in hell to increase exponentially.

      Now, we look at the rate of change in volume in hell. Boyle’s Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in hell to stay the same, the ratio of the mass of souls and volume needs to stay constant. Two options exist:

      If hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter hell, then the temperature and pressure in hell will increase until all hell breaks loose.
      If hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until hell freezes over.
      So which is it? If we accept the quote given to me by Theresa Manyan during Freshman year, “that it will be a cold night in hell before I sleep with you” and take into account the fact that I still have NOT succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then Option 2 cannot be true…Thus, hell is exothermic.”

      That’s it? Really? Two 17 year old boys lock a girl in a room during a party, she feels threatened and is able to get out of the room? That is a bombshell? That’s not even a smoking cap stick.

      Doesn’t even rise to Mitt Romney giving someone haircut level.

      So she remembers this incident from what – 25 years ago and that it was Brett Kavanaugh? Sounds to me it’s one of those pussy hat wearing looney birds that thought making this allegation would derail him by insinuation. Supposedly the woman was found by another news source and refuses to talk about it. Sorry, but if the bitch won’t go on the record, smarmy Feinstein had no business bringing it up.

      Here it is. Attempted rape

      BREAKING NEWS: Trump’s Supreme Court nominee hit with bombshell claim of drunken sex attack when he was 17 as woman says he held her down, covered her mouth and tried to force himself on her

      @ eaglesoars:

      And Feinstein didn’t think this was important enough to pursue in JULY when she first received notice of this? And it apparently never showed up on any of the three FBI background checks done on this man?

      This is now the Democrat playbook. Bring forward a sex allegation at the last minute.

      And sorry, but this bitch needs to be dragged into the sunlight. You don’t get to make this sort of allegation against someone and then go “I don’t want to to discuss it.”

      Did she report this to her parents or tell the police?

      A couple things about this:

      Feinstein’s people took this to Ronan Farrow to give it the weight of the Weinstein bombshell. Nothing against Farrow, he earned his bones.

      The person other than Kavanaugh who was said to be involved says he has no recollection of the incident.

      Kavanaugh denies it

      And the bitch is insisting she doesn’t want to be named

      Lemme see here, Kavanaugh is at a party with girls from a nearby school. He went to a boys Catholic high school, and I am betting that hers was a Catholic high school. The scenario is very familiar to me and none of us would have had the nerve, we were far too awkward around girls. I don’t buy it.

      I don’t know why I am getting so bent out of shape over this maneuver by Feinstein. Maybe it’s my sense of right and wrong. This is effing outrageous on her part – a blind, disgusting accusation that apparently should be given full credence. She held on to that for six weeks and never mentioned it. Her excuse? Oh, I promised her “anonymity” and “confidentiality” – since when you allow an accusation of this sort to be made against someone and not give them the chance to face their accuser?

      What bothers me most is that she’ll get away with it, and the voters of California will probably return her demented ass to the Senate in November. Where she’ll lie in wait for the next Supreme Court nominee to emerge so she can destroy him on a national audience.

      When Judge Alito was nominated by George Bush, one of the partners at my firm was very excited because he had clerked for Judge Alito. He became so incensed and angry at the behavior of the Democrats during the confirmation hearing – he felt I was the only one he could turn to to express his anger. I looked at him and said “don’t you know, Jim? If you’re conservative it’s open season.”

      I wonder what it’s like to live completely in a fantasy world.

      Bill Kristol building ‘war machine’ to challenge Trump in 2020 primary

      Kristol told the network that he’s preparing “for a primary run against Trump,” adding that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is on his shortlist of possible candidates.

      Kasich was unsuccessful in his 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, only managing to beat Trump in his home state.

      Kristol also said Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) are also being considered.

      Kasich and Flake and ‘war machine’. I dunno, it’s missing a beat somewhere

      @ yenta-fada:

      Thanks, Yenta.

      I didn’t have the privilege of meeting her until she was three. My wife went through the divorce of her first husband with her, and in many ways Bailey helped her through. Her ex came to her parents where she was staying, wanting to “share custody” with the dog. Her Dad, an ordained minister and Salvation Army officer now retired told him point blank that he should have thought about that before he f*cked around on his daughter.

      So despite all our time together, she was still more my wife’s dog than mine.

      I was getting worried that I was going to have to override her on the whole “it’s time” thing, but she came to it on her own at the right time. She had never had to make a decision like that before, and it sounds stupid but I’m proud of her.

      Bailey may have been lucky, but we were luckier.

      It was most probably a brain tumor. It was clear it wasn’t an ear (or any other kind of) infection, or any other kind of condition that was treatable with any efficacy.

      The vet suggested a pet neurologist about a month and a half ago, and I had ANOTHER very hard conversation with my wife about what exactly that would entail with a 15 year old dog coupled with a history of increased seizure activity and vestibular syndrome . Pretty much three grand to image and tell us what we already pretty much knew.

      We opted to take her home and manage her care.

      I KNOW I made the right call there, but my grief is second guessing it today.

      (I have many anecdotal stories of people giving older dogs radical treatments, and I don’t feel it’s fair to the animal in many cases. Like you said, the animal doesn’t know why you’re putting it through terrible things like radiation or dialysis, and it has no consent. Not to mention the debt. I’ve heard horror stories.)

      The one blessing was that she wasn’t in any physical pain, but her fear and confusion was evident in her last two days. Up until then, she could still get to her dishes to eat and drink (with a little difficulty) when she wanted. Two days ago I had to bring her water to her because she couldn’t steady herself enough in front of her dish to get a drink. That was my line.

      This is the first time I’ve really had to deal with neurological issues with a pet, and in a way it made it difficult because all of her other physical systems were working fine. She ate, she drank, she peed, she pooped normal. She just couldn’t get around. The way she was moving, had she been a larger dog, I think the decision would have been made earlier. Not regretting, just noting.

      While I’m here, I’d like to note that I’ve been trying to get a NeverTrump perspective by listening to Ben Shapiro’s podcast, given that he’s stated he’s going to give Trump a fair shake and only “call balls and strikes.”

      He’s a piece of garbage that is only going smell worse as time goes on. He hates Trump even more than any NeverTrump guest he interviews. He DRIPS with elitist hypocrisy, and is spiraling.

      He’s getting a pass because he riles up the SJWs on campus and can handle them well, plus he wears the ‘conservative Jew with a yarmulke’ gig like a pro.

      He’s a liar and a disgrace to the Judaism he purports honor.

      Tucker Carlson takes on Stormys creepy porn lawyer face to face and it does not go well for the lawyer.
      He goes on the View, CNN and MSNBC blusters and smears, and they eat it up..
      But in a straight up debate he looks like a fool. He defaults to sophomoric taunting and nonsequitors.

      This is bizzare. Hispanic Taco Bell worker refuses service to African American because the customer does not speak Spanish.

      Michael Moore Thinks Donald Trump Wrote NYTimes Op-Ed Piece: “He’s the master of distraction, he wants us to believe there are adults in the room”

      For once I wish Micheal Moore was actually right about something. It would be the biggest trolling in HISTORY…
