      Wish I could have been in New Orleans for the ‘demonstrations’. The more upscale demonstrators hire brass bands, lots of folks dress up like they all went to a going out of budiness sale at a giant hippie/grunge/glitter store and there’s lots of booze. If you’re gonna listen to thst crap a lotta booze helps.

    Seen on Facebook:

    Randy Bock

    “While I was getting a coffee, I overheard 7 young people (22-26 years old, 5 males, 2 female) who have been protesting in downtown Portland the last two nights.
    I told them I was doing research and asked nicely if they would answer some questions. They were cool with it, so I sat down and went for it.
    Ø Three voted. Of the four who didn’t, none was registered to vote.
    Ø None of them researched independently either candidate.
    Ø All were for Hillary but preferred Bernie.
    Ø Why the Democratic Candidate?
    Β· “More things are taken care of.”
    Β· “Time to have a woman President.”
    Β· “Democrats aren’t sexist or racist.”
    Ø Six of them live at home.
    Ø All are under their parents insurance.
    Ø Two have “real” jobs.
    Ø Three aren’t working, nor are they trying hard to find a job either.
    Ø Parents pay for everything in their life or subsidize it.
    Ø Six get money from mom or dad every month.
    Ø Two have been on unemployment for 6+ months.
    Ø One is at Portland State U, doesn’t work, and parents pay for everything.
    Ø All 7 said Trump is a racist/sexist. I asked to cite proof … “That tape, man!”
    Ø When I asked, as a man myself, β€œHave you ever said anything like that when you’ve
    been hanging out with your buddies? All five males said “Yes.”
    Ø Would you say it if you knew you were on tape? All five answered “No.”
    Ø What’s the difference? I asked. β€œYou’ve all said bad stuff like that. Does
    that mean you hate women and are a sexual predator?” Nothing. No answer.
    Ø None could tell me how our government works … they didn’t know how
    laws are passed, how the House of Representatives or the Senate work.
    Ø None could explain how a bill is passed.
    Ø Only one could tell me the difference between legal and illegal immigration.
    One of them said, “Legal immigration is when you immigrate legally.” Seriously.
    Ø None could explain the purpose of the Electoral College or how it works.
    In 10 minutes they felt they had explained everything. Nice kids … but so ignorant. I know some awesome, phenomenal young adults; but I’m afraid the majority are like these seven. Too many participation trophies, too much coddling by parents and teachers.
    In 1944 18 year-olds stormed the beach at Normandy into almost certain death.
    In 2016 18-year-olds feel unsafe because words hurt their feelings.”

      I am very disappointed. It hasn’t rained in so long and there was 100% chance it would rain today, starting with thunderstorms around 8:00. I got up in anticipation of the T-storms and it still looked very dark out. It was dark out because it was early. O_o The stupid sky was almost completely clear except for some filmy clouds around the edges of the sky being blown away. {sigh} It is now a little after 8:00 and the sun is out, and there is a completely clear sky. πŸ˜₯

    Queen’s chaplain quits over cathedral Koran reading which said ‘not to worship Jesus’

    “After a conversation instigated by officials at Buckingham Palace, Β I decided the most honourable course of action was to resign,” Reverend Ashenden wrote.Β 

    “I have held the position for the last nine years. But over the last few years people who objected to my defending the Christian faith in public wrote to both Lambeth Palace and Buckingham Palace to try to get the association ended.

    “When I was confronted with these attempts to silence or defenestrate me, my reaction was to ask ‘in what way is a priest defending the faith on behalf of a monarch who was Defender of the Faith, incongruous or improper?’


    May God bless Reverend Ashenden as he fights the promotion of evil and false values of “co-existence.”

        I think we are going to see a mass movement to Islam amongst the liberal elites. They believe anything is what they want it to be it is rather than what it has proven to be. Wait for the Hollywood elites to begin converting and they’ll be followed by the sycophants.

        They will be pleased as punch until they literally start losing their heads rather than figuratively and psychologically losing their minds.

      Nielsen dates back to the dark ages of television, abd I’m betting their presentbdydtem ain’t much better. Thry can get numbers from cable, satellite and wireless providers but I’m betting it’s harder getting numbers from internet providers.
      I’m betting Nielsen doesn’t have those methods of counting folks with antenna reception and even the satellite, cable and wireless have problems figuring out if you’re watching or if you just didn’t turn your system off. We’re back to looking at the actual results and not using tainted guesswork.

    Meanwhile the pope obliquely compares Trump to Hitler.

    Pope warns against populism and ‘saviours’ like Hitler

    “Of course crises provoke fears and worries,” he said but added that for him “the example of populism in the European sense of the word is Germany in 1933.

    “Germany… was looking for a leader, someone who would give her back her identity and there was a little man named Adolf Hitler who said ‘I can do it’.”

    “Hitler did not steal power,” the pope said. “He was elected by his people and then he destroyed his people.”

      I am growing suspicious of the continued comparisons to Germany and in turn, Hitler.
      I wonder how much is echo chamber and how much is based upon actual historical events.
      I seem to recall reading that hyperinflation in the Weimar Republic of the 1920’s and people starving to death, murders and assassinations of hundreds of political figures, contributed to Hitler’s rise to power in the 1930’s.
      The National Socialist German Workers’ Party political strategy focused on anti-big business, anti-bourgeois, and anti-capitalist rhetoric. Kind of like the rhetoric Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the rest of the left spew.

        I think for some it is with full knowledge of historical events and current happenings, I would include the pope, Sanders, Clinton, Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Soros, Merkel, Islamic leaders, et al in that list of “with knowledge and malice” and as usual the minions are the pussy hat wearers, window breakers and sign holders as the echo chamber. The oligarchs know what a dictator is the echo chamber doesn’t know the difference between a dictator and a four leaf clover.

        I do believe that Hillary said “If Trump wins we will all hang,” after being blindsided by the Matt Lauer interview, the oligarchs know exactly what is happening, they have studied history that is why we see so many American political dynasties trying to retain their power and avoid the gallows.

    This is a new low, the Rats have morphed into true sewer followers and nothing will bring them back. The children of the president have always been off limits but this new breed of kindler, gentler fascist has thrown all the rules of decency out the windows. Imagine if they’d have been swept into power and prominence with Hillary – a fluffy Hitler in Spanx.

      They still don’t get that they got Trump elected by acting the way they do.

      I read at AT today something to the effect of, “These rioters have got away with this for the last 8 years!”

      No, for the last 16. They started with A.N.S.W.E.R., right after 9/11/2001.

      And the riot industry began rolling down the track.

        Lenin was a msster of using violence in political revolution and these latter day rats have adapted and adopted.
        Back in the lste 60s and early 70s, when I still played active pol games, you could go to a Rat political meeting and see ‘organizers’ who had contacts with ‘action groups’. These action groups would skate on the thin egde of legality to stir up emotions during any political events, especially provoking police. These same groups exist now in various forms from ansrchist to communist to jerks that still live in their parents’ basements, some being violent. They are organized and their use by the Rats is mutually beneficial, look st how well Obama used them.
        This may turn violent like the Weather/communist/ethnic terrorist movements of the 60s/70s and the social engineers will use the MSM and alternate media to blame conservatives and try to use the fallout to influence voters and legislation.
        I dtill say 2018 is going to be the crux. The Rats have already started to get candidates lined up and deodorized, if they can take the Senate back they can pull a stall and make Trump look bad. Keep your powder dry.

      He was cheered by the workerbees but there may have been problems with the political apointees and their eronenos. Trump putting an insider inside is no different than what any other president has done and the president’s/DCI’s total control of the Company is not total.
      If the CIA had wanted to torpedo him they could have, those who don’t know the breadth and reach of the agency know it wouldn’t have been that difficult a thing to do. I’m betting the active ‘dump Trump’ was, if it existed at all, was mostly Obama’s political appointees and followers.

          People have nooooooo idea. Company’s operating budget is classified, mostly buried in appropriations in other agencies’ budget sheets. There’s also the issue of proprietary Company companies that produce a lot of income, but it’s what ya gotta do to survive when you operate in an environment where Rat traitors scurry through the halls of government.
