      AFter AOC read about a new book coming out in which Trump likens her to Eva Peron, she’s started tweeting Evita quotes.

      “I know that, like every woman of the people, I have more strength than I appear to have.”

      “I had watched for many years and seen how a few rich families held much of Argentina’s wealth and power in their hands. So the government brought in an eight hour working day, sickness pay and fair wages to give poor workers a fair go.”

      Take a few breaths then one deep breath and slowly let it out half way.

      Hold the rest of the breath and time the trigger squeeze between heartbeats.

      Keep your legs apart and the line of the weapon aligned with a line from the foresight through the shoulder and down one leg, depending on whether you are firing as a lefty or a righty…… not politically! HEH!

      @ Aussie Infidel:
      I shot lefty but got tired of my forearm getting burned by ejected casings, so I learned to shoot right-handed.

      A friend did something similar, but the hot casing somehow ended up in his ear. Stuff like that happened to Kenny a lot. He wasn’t dangerous, except to himself. He was entertainment for the rest of us, but he never knew it. It wasn’t really his fault, given that he grew up in a house with a couch and a broken refrigerator on the front porch.

      Kenny was the kind of guy who would fix anything that wasn’t broken, as long as it wasn’t his, and he’d fix it so well that nobody could ever use it again.

      A bunch of us rented a houseboat and set out on Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee. Great remote area. We were moored in a cove, sitting on the shore, when Kenny decided to hook up some speakers to the stereo. Next thing we heard was a splash. Kenny had tripped over the top rail and took both speakers with him. Kenny & the speakers eventually dried out.

      Dale Hollow Lake doesn’t get great radio reception due to location and terrain. We tried to tune into the Reds game, and it was real spotty, so Kenny rigged an antenna (a wire and a coathanger covered in aluminum foil) to the top deck. It worked, albeit with a lot of static. Then Kenny pissed on the rigged antenna, and the game came in clear for a few minutes, then faded again, so Kenny took out his pecker once more, held it to the antenna, and we heard the entire game.

      Kenny “fixed” the houseboat steering gear on that trip, too. A buddy and I had to sit on either side of the motor, sucking in diesel fumes while kicking it back and forth at the direction of the “pilot”, just to get it back to the marina. Fun times.

      R.I.P. Kenny.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Are they using Epstein(who is clearly guilty) as one of the ways to go after the Clintons? I’m saying that because of the recent cases where officials might have been Arkancided. I’ll probably listen to Bongino tonight. The web of people connected to Epstein looks pretty complex. I haven’t read much about this case, but the headlines should be causing some panic among the super elite class.

      no clue. All I know is that Mueller got him out early, so there was some kind of deal. Then Mike Cernovich won a court case a week or 2 ago that forced about 2000 docs in his case to be unsealed. Cue the ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE music

      As for using girls to procure other girls, that seems to be the modus operandi. It was also done with the Rotherdam gang.


    24. eaglesoars
      24 | July 8, 2019 3:11 pm

      Here is a portion of the docs released last week under the Cernovich ruling and it sure as hell looks like Epstein was an FBI informant and that’s the deal he cut w/Mueller’s FBI

      Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon. Case agent advised that no federal prosecution will occur on this matter

      One person said it’s Foxhall Rd, another Canal Rd. I know both, it looks like Canal Rd to me (both in downtown DC around Geotwn)

      The Dems would be just as happy to let Tommy be murdered in prison as the Brit lefties are. It’s a good thought, but Trump can’t afford to poke the Brit Deep State in the eye. He’s up to his ass in alligators

      There are bloggers who refers to these unlikely weather events “earth changes”. NOT climate change when you have more active volcanos and earthquakes. It’s almost as though the earth is expanding from inside
      and cracking the surface and roiling the waters. Whatever the causes of atypical and fierce weather events are, it is most certainly not global warming. The corn and grain states of the Midwest are still not free of flooding. Then governments pretend they can fix the weather by raising your taxes.

      now you know why I’ll never live near a river again. This was just a lot of rain in a short time. I got pounded a couple years ago swimming in Cinnamon Bay at St. Johns when the water was a little rough. It wasn’t the undertow, it’s that the waves were higher than me and I got nailed. Thought I’d been hit in the back of the head with a 2×4. They had to come get me (and a few others). Unless you’ve dealt with it, you have no idea how HEAVY water is

      You might be right Eagle, but it is a little galling. If a US ambassador spoke that way about a British PM I bet that they would see it differently.

      With just about a few months before Durroch ends his term in Washington and the nominal transition period between Ambassadors, Boris Johnson will be the British PM and his selected Foreign minister will send the replacement ambassador to DC who is a LOT more pro-Trump.

      The nonsense about having a ‘so called neutral ‘Sir Humphery’ type of bureaucrat from the Foreign office is just a load of old ropes. The whole of the British Foreign Office is riven with self serving insiders on the make.

      Boris will appoint a Trump friendly ambassador and that’ll be the end of it!
