    Ah, yes…celebration of the pagan fall ritual!

    Every year my parents come down for Halloween and my Mom and Mrs Coldwarrior take the girls out trick or treating and Mom gets to visit with her old friends in town. They go 100% and come back with an amazing amount of loot.

    I set up a bronze chimnea on the corner and have a nice fire for peeps to wram themselves by. Dad and I stand on the porch, smoke cigars, drink some booze and hand out candy whilst the women are out and about (aht n abaht in pittsburghese)

      We will have a bowl of candy out and Fox TV on to scare the trick or treaters a little bit. All in good fun. Sean Hannity is really Santa Claus. He is just gearing up for the holidays.

      I’d only been in my last apartment a few months probably when I had what might have been a poltergeist. I was living alone at the time. I walked down the hall, turned and took a single step when I was hit in the back with a penny. Nobody else was there, and it never happened again.

      I also make pizza in the pizza oven before everyone goes trick or treating.

      Good dough is key.

      Reid introduced the Immigration Stabilization Act in 1993, which would have revoked birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants. Reid stressed at the time that he intended to remove the “incentive for pregnant alien women to enter the United States illegally, often at risk to mother and child, for the purpose of acquiring citizenship for the child and accompanying federal financial benefits.”

      Mexico Deports Caravan Migrants Wanted for Murder, Drug Trafficking

      Mexican law enforcement officials deported two migrants traveling in the caravan that is headed for the U.S. border as they are reportedly fugitives wanted for their roles in a triple murder and drug trafficking.

      “The arrest took place as part of a joint effort between Mexico’s Federal Police and the National Migration Institute (INM) in conjunction with Interpol, Mexico’s Secretariat of the Interior said,” journalists Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz reported. “The two men were part of the migrant caravan from Honduras and requested permission to travel through Mexico.”

      Mexican authorities — in coordination with Interpol and the Honduran National Police — arrested and deported Adin Josué “N,” 21, and Juan Carlos “N,” 47, who are respectively accused of drug trafficking and being involved in murdering three people.

      But remember…there’s no evidence that there are any bad people in the “caravan”…

      Here’s an interesting side piece to the Codvilla article Aussie posted.

      Democrats’ Hidden Civil War

      What’s happening is that the energy in the Democratic Party now is coming from richer educated white liberals who are most motivated by issues that don’t resonate with the ethnic minorities who make up the Democratic base. For example, did you know that in the bellwether House race in which newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unseated veteran incumbent Joe Crowley, the challenger’s strongest precincts were the whiter, wealthier ones, while the incumbent ran strongest in the most heavily minority precincts?

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      THANK YOU for the Codevilla essay from The American Mind! It’s EXACTLY what I have been looking for to help explain THE GRIM POLARITIES in U.S. and Canadian politics. It has families and friends at each others throats.

      Codevilla describes the “Revolutionary Spiral” using History & chiefly starting with Woodrow Wilson. There are 4 Stages of the Spiral. (action and reaction) and we are at the 4th. He writes why this is no longer reversible if you agree with his model.

      I had to read it more than once, so the brainiacs among you can dash it off.

      @ eaglesoars:

      From ‘the democrats hidden civil war:

      “Democratic/Independent Liberal Elites”:

      As a group, DILEs are younger, whiter, richer and better-educated than the rest of the country. Strikingly, it is the only cohort across the political spectrum not to rank jobs and the economy as a top priority, preferring the environment and climate change. Polls show that people like Winston’s DILEs are also far less religious and far more socially liberal than the rest of the Democratic Party on issues like abortion and LGBT rights. In evaluating candidates, these Democrats consider diversity, and hailing from outside the political establishment, hugely important.”

      This is the Trudeau mantra. The stupidity of the NAFTA drawn out talks were an example of this rift. Trudeau does NOT reflect Canadians, but it’s different up here. There is no REAL Conservative to run against him. We work from the abysmal ‘Charter of Rights’ created by Trudope’s father Pierre. It’s a hodge podge of moral relativism. I don’t even remember it, so Eagle can’t ask me any questions.

      There is no Republican apparatus to speak of in the City of Pittsburgh.

      Only city residents can vote for mayor and the “Pittsburgh metro” area has resisted becoming part of the “City of Pittsburgh,” unlike in many other cities of it’s size. Still lots of independent boroughs and towns around it.

      How stupid are these people? This is the headline from the Associated Press

      President Trump’s first 3 children did not receive birthright citizenship

      That is the CORRECTED headline. The correction reads

      CORRECTION: The headline on this story has been corrected to show that Trump’s first three children did not receive birthright citizenship.

      The Associated Press reviewed this story after it was surfaced to third-party fact checkers as part of an initiative with Facebook to assess the accuracy of news content.

      AP’S ASSESSMENT: Mixture. It’s true that Ivana Trump was not a citizen until 1988, but the father of her children was a U.S. citizen and there would have been no special status needed to make them citizens.

      It was the US System shorn of the three military only channels and only sporting the two commercial channels. Back 20 years ago when Dr. Kevin Parkinson (a Kiwi) found a way to counter the US Military ‘dithering channels’ (2 commercial channels that were deliberately de-tuned to make them less accurate to prevent using them to be used for targeting, by going around them and processing the dithered channels to make them much more accurate the US military was shocked to say the least. After a bit of denial they realised that eventually the Russians would also stumble on the secret they decided to un-dither the commercial channels that now became as accurate as the military channels and the GPS for everyone revolution was born.

      True story. I was Kevin Parkinson’s best man!

      My sister is working the polls in Panama City Beach. She sez the Dem turnout is heavy. However: That area of Florida has been pretty much destroyed by the hurricane (I didn’t tell you about the phone call I got from her, people have NO idea what’s happened down there). Follow-up studies by weather people show that thing made landfall as a Cat 5. A lot of mail-in ballots are missing/gone because the post offices were heavily damaged, etc. They’re concerned about fraud because there’s no way to prove who lives where, people have lost EVERYTHING including id.

      The covert ‘swampies’ amongst the full time administrators and bureaucrats who tell the talking head politicians what to say lest they cease to remain elected. The real question one should ask is who is pulling their strings.

      The Swamp is both broad and very deep and has been in the making since the Civil War but especially over the last 50 years. It even runs in families and can be tracked if you really want to waste the time to do it. These born to rule elites seem to think that they have a god given right to rule and it shows. They come from BOTH sides of the political spectrum, which in the end is there to give the illusion of democratic choice to the plebs.

      Alas I get cynical some times but with good reason.

      …. ‘Senior State Department officials working on the Iran issue are said to have convinced Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to permit Iran to remain connected to the international banking system, providing a key lifeline to Tehran as its economy teeters on the brink of collapse.’ ….

      …and there it is!

      Senior State Department Officials . Name these swamp dwelling bastards. Shame them and run them out of town on a rail with a coat of tar and feathers. The CIA FBI and State/ Justice are the deepest stretches of the swamp. They should be drained and re-staffed!

      Don’t get me started on the goons and thieves within the International Banking System. They should be invited to a short hemp rope and a long drop ASP

      No, they don’t. There is no right under our Constitution for them to come into the country illegally, or to apply for asylum.

      For those who might want a gander – here’s the complaint as filed in the USDC for the District of Columbia. You can read it here: https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/5026840/11-1-18-Pineda-v-Trump-Complaint.pdf

      No doubt Justice counters with a 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss on several grounds – (1) that under international law, asylum must be requested at the FIRST country of arrival – which in most cases will be Guatemala but in other cases will be Mexico; (2) that they have no standing to sue as the case is not “ripe” for litigation – they cannot sue based on what is currently a hypothetical – that they will be denied asylum or entry – they are not here yet; and (3) the President has the constitutional right to secure the borders of the United States against invasion. As of now, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico are not considered “refugee” nations. You may have violence in your country, but that does not automatically entitle you to refuge in the United States. Ask the people of Chicago.

      No, they do not have standing. But you watch. The court will issue the standard “case management conference” calendar, which it does with every lawsuit that is filed, and the media will immediately jump up and say “SEE?! The District Court believes the caravan has a CASE!!

      The Court makes no such judgment. It will be the answering documents of the DOJ that will make the court decide whether they have a case or not. BTW, look for the DOJ to request an expedited hearing if they file the Motion to Dismiss.

      Interesting background on one of the law firms who filed that lawsuit

      http://serpentrising.com/2018/11/02/shady-group-suing-trump-for-the-migrant-caravan-under-investigation-for-exploiting-illegals-for-money-relocated-parkland-fl-shooters-brother/

      The suit was filed on their behalf by the law firm McFadden & Shoreman in Washington, Nexus Derechos Humanos Attoreys in Atlanta, and Williams Oinonen LLC in Atlanta.

      [criminal history and political activity here]

      But how does a firm that claims to do pro bono and charity work for the downtrodden get to such dizzy height of success? The answer is by using bonds in immigration, an immigration bond is different than in the state judicial system, where a person usually pays between 10 percent and 20 percent and offers something as collateral, typically real estate. In immigration court, the detainee has to raise the full amount of the bond and often doesn’t have collateral to entice a bondsman.

      Nexus/Libre contracts with a bail bond company, which actually posts the bond required by the court. Libre then securitizes it by mandating that the client wear a GPS ankle monitor until his or her day in court or until they pay back at least 80 percent of the bond, after which they make arrangements on the terms for covering the rest. Here is the case of Victor (pseudonym) who was milked by Nexus/Libre and explains their cash cow modus operandi. The contract agreed to by Victor’s wife called for a payment of $3,880 up front.

      This breaks down to $2,250 for the premium to the bonding company; $750 for a general consulting fee; and $880, split between $420 for the monthly GPS tracking and a $460 activation fee.

      None of those charges goes towards paying down the $15,000 bond.

      At $420 a month, the couple in the first year will have paid $8,920 for fees and the monitoring costs. After two years, when his court date is scheduled, they will have paid an estimated $13,905 in fees, insurance and a bond premium with none of it ascribed to the bond total. Now imagine having a steady flow of illegal aliens coming into this country, what does that do to their business? It is pure unmitigated boom market should the migrant caravan fall into the clutches of this company.

Mugu California back in 2001 (this is the crash that formed the “basis” of the Denzel Washington movie “Flight” – except Flight 261 had no survivors). Some months after the crash, there were some very shady lawyers in Miami and California who brought claims against the estates of four of the men who were killed, along with their families, in the crash. Apparently, they had all “fathered” children in Guatemala. It was preposterous, it was bogus, but lawyers saw a way to exploit it. Makes you ill.


    101. 102 | November 2, 2018 4:29 pm

      @ RIX:

      The problem here is that they filed a lawsuit. They didn’t petition the court for a temporary injunction; this means that the whole litigation procedure must play out – answer/motion for dismissal, discovery. Hell, these idiots even requested a JURY trial. It takes about three years to get to trial on the federal docket, and the D.C. District is pretty damn busy – it’s where every single agency case goes to get litigated. If they’d had any smarts at all, they’d have filed in the District of Arizona.

Do these jerks forget Ivanka and his grandchildren are also Orthodox Jews? This man is the best friend Israel has ever had in the Oval Office!!

      Double standard again in play – Trump’s remark about Russia and Hillary’s emails is a plea for them to interfere in the election, when we all know it was a joke, but Hillary saying “yeah, I know, they all look alike” and then cackling was soooo funny.

      And just like that, the smear merchants are getting their comeuppance. Remember that “Jane Doe” from Oceanside that said Kavanaugh raped her in the back of a car? Well, the Committee found out who she is from an email and have referred HER for criminal prosecution as well:

      Want to run against Trump in 2020, Kamala? You put this letter out. Between this and your “Where’s Willie” escapades to get put on the public payroll, you’re going to be sliced and diced like a Chevy’s fajita entre.

      I’ve found something at another source that says she said she is NOT the author of the Jane Doe letter. She READ the Jane Doe letter and then emailed the Committee and said she was the author to get some attention. I don’t know. I think she is the author and is now furiously backpedaling knowing she is in trouble.

      In fact I am going to vote Beto as many times as I can.

      Remember that “Jane Doe” from Oceanside that said Kavanaugh raped her in the back of a car?

      She’s a history prof at some college in KY. She gave 2 reasons: she was angry AND – this is the clincher – she wanted attention. She is WAY older than Kavanaugh.

      I’ll bet she has long grey hair that looks like it’s been thru a jet turbine, is 45 pounds overweight, no makeup,never married, and is really angry because she missed out on being the kind of female the Kavanaughs of the world would ever consider suitable.

      So many of these people are mentally disabled.

      @ RIX:

      The problem here is that they filed a lawsuit. They didn’t petition the court for a temporary injunction; this means that the whole litigation procedure must play out – answer/motion for dismissal, discovery. Hell, these idiots even requested a JURY trial. It takes about three years to get to trial on the federal docket, and the D.C. District is pretty damn busy – it’s where every single agency case goes to get litigated. If they’d had any smarts at all, they’d have filed in the District of Arizona.

      Could this be dismissed for lack of standing.

      Inspection is finished. A few big ticket things like a number of the upstairs windows will need replacing, some mud jack work and grading, and little stuff like an outlet cover and adjusting the garage door opener chain. We’ll see what we can get from them.

      Home inspection is tomorrow. We close on the 21st. Trying to figure out how we’re supposed to pack stuff since we don’t have any free space to store it until moving day. I’m hoping they’ll let us start getting stuff in early. Off season clothes. Books. Bikes. Some of the kitchen things. All the crap that’s in the basement.

      Rent a container. They’re cheap to rent and are watertight and fairly secure.

      Heck, if you can afford it, buy one. They are water tight, make great storage and really aren’t that expensive compared to an outdoor building.

      @ Aussie Infidel:
      I suggested a storage unit, but she said it’s not worth it.

      Okay… Moving days will be interesting.

      “Beto” is an Irish nickname that means asshole in most latin-based languages.

      In Celtic, “Beto” means the anus of a mule.


    122. 123 | November 3, 2018 2:08 am

      O’Rourke means “of the mule.”


    123. 124 | November 3, 2018 2:10 am

      I could be wrong.


    124. 125 | November 3, 2018 2:13 am

      Nah. Beto Robert Francis O’Rourke is indeed the anus of a mule.
