General Comments / Re: GOP nutbag of the week

It is really hard to keep up with all the nutbaggery.

Speaking at a religious service Sunday in Colorado, she told worshipers: “The church is supposed to direct the government. The government is not supposed to direct the church. That is not how our Founding Fathers intended it.”

She added: “I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk that’s not in the Constitution. It was in a stinking letter, and it means nothing like what they say it does.” Her comments were first reported by the Denver Post.

Boebert. Republican embarassment number 329.

Your rebuttal, Mr. Madison, on behalf of the founding fathers?

Nothwithstanding the general progress made within the two last centuries in favour of this branch of liberty, & the full establishment of it, in some parts of our Country, there remains in others a strong bias towards the old error, that without some sort of alliance or coalition between Gov' & Religion neither can be duly supported: Such indeed is the tendency to such a coalition, and such its corrupting influence on both the parties, that the danger cannot be too carefully guarded agst.. And in a Gov' of opinion, like ours, the only effectual guard must be found in the soundness and stability of the general opinion on the subject. Every new & successful example therefore of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters, is of importance.

A PERFECT separation.

That quote points out something the religious folks salivating for the changes have been oblivious to.

The danger cuts both ways.

When the pendulum swings,and it will, there will be no protecting your religious institutions from the counter swing because the barriers to do so will have been removed by your own hand.

 These cycles are long and I’m not sure I will live to see it but it will come to pass.

Echoing the high court’s language in striking down Roe, the Alabama appeal filed on Monday argued that the state has the authority to outlaw puberty-blocking hormones and other therapies for transgender minors in part because they are not “deeply rooted in our history or traditions.”

And with that we continue sliding down that slope into poorly reasoned madness.

Maybe we should just follow the Texas workaround to Constitutionality. Make it possible for private citizens to sue anyone who helps a mass shooter commit that crime. The Uber driver that dropped them off, the guy who sold them the gun, the ammo, anyone who instructed them how to use the gun, anyone giving advice on how to aim it...

Maybe some state needs to pass a horrendous law like that to get the Supreme Court off their ass in striking down end runs around the constitution.

My position is again. No AR-15's (or similar semi-automatic high capacity, high power rifles). The death totals are way higher using that type of rifle than someone using handguns. Doubt the current supreme court would allow such restrictions. Maybe just let everyone mount 50 cals to their cars and trucks. Right to keep and bear arms. Who cares if our streets start seeing gun fights like we're in a war zone, gun rights shall not be infringed. Ignore that militia part.

Just have a few peaceful protests outside Supreme Court homes say ten thousand well armed people holding a torchlit vigil. Laws will change.

The laws will change but probably not in the way you want. Laws to ban the speech or bearing arms around the justices but nothing for the rest of us.

Indeed. Some pigs are more equal than others.

Not sure what you mean about the Philippines? I've been ignoring the news though, so I guess it must be something recent.

The Chinese are ascendant in the Pacific and have scored in placing the progeny of the old dictator back into power by manipulating social media there so he won the election.

Well now, I know a certain producer who is likely to have an accident for booking this guest.

Russia's mainstream media outlets offer a view of the Ukraine war that is unlike anything seen from outside of the country. For a start, they don't even call it a war. But our Russia editor reflects on a rare exchange broadcast on state TV.

It was an extraordinary piece of television.

The programme was 60 Minutes, the flagship twice-daily talk show on Russian state TV: studio discussion that promotes the Kremlin line on absolutely everything, including on President Putin's so-called "special military operation" in Ukraine.

The Kremlin still maintains that the Russian offensive is going according to plan.

But on Monday night, studio guest Mikhail Khodarenok, a military analyst and retired colonel, painted a very different picture.

He warned that "the situation [for Russia] will clearly get worse" as Ukraine receives additional military assistance from the West and that "the Ukrainian army can arm a million people".

Hmm looks like a pivot to me. They’ve always claimed that Ukraine is being used as a stooge for the west now they’re needing to build a case for how the Ukraine is even more dangerous than they realized and opens the path to using more serious weapons and painting a portrait of how it’s the West’s weapons that are killing young Russian men and not the stupid blunders of Russian leadership,

No comment on the shooters reasons for the shooting?

I have no idea what his reasons were.  I assume the guy is a racist *censored*. I also assume he is crazy. I would like to read what he posted online before the shooting but apparently, the ministry of truth doesn't think I should be able to.  I would also like to know what happened the last time he made threats but for some reason the feds wont release that information.

“Crazy” is something the gun nuts like to position as a reason for people doing this.

Law enforcement experience doesn’t bear it out. Most of them are as sane as you are.

They’re male and somehow feel disappointed with their lot in life and that there is some conspiracy that is oppressing them. (The gays,the left, Jews, black people, immigrants and so on)

That’s the common link.

The last time he made those threats about a year ago he got pulled out of school, had to get psychologically profiled and they locked down all the schools in the community for the day . Then they decided he was just another dumb white kid with a promising future and he went on to go to attend his local community college.

The weapons he used were in fact illegal in the state under the SAFE act. Legal as he purchased them then illegally modified. Had he been pulled over for a traffic violation on his drive out and searched he would have been in jail for a felony assuming he didn’t shoot the officer pulling him over.

Meanwhile, 33 people shot in Chicago this weekend 5 fatally.

Nothing on the national news about that.

Sounds like another vote for “tax arms sales and body armor for everyone!”

More like a vote for "start enforcing the gun laws that are on the books".

So you support enabling the ATF to more efficiently track guns and gun sales so they can more easily identify straw purchasers and the gun dealers they buy from?

No, I don't support that.  I support charging criminals found with illegal guns with felonies and prosecuting them to the full extent of the law.  Rather than pleading them out to misdemeanors and releasing them back into the street.

So your position is that all the guys engaging in this shootings are doing so with illegally owned firearms?

Also that we have no right to safety merely hoping that the perps will be found and prosecuted after we are laying in the cold hard ground?

Since you’re a big advocate of enforcing the laws we have on the books you’re also willing to step up and pay more taxes to help out our IRS? The country needs money badly. Oddly enough our tax collectors keep getting their budgets cut by the folks who have the most money to the point where they are barely even a functional unit of the government anymore. I’m sure it must be a coincidence I mean it’s not like it’s good business to not pay taxes right?

What the hell does that mean?

also, maybe we should ban body armor. That is not protected under the 2nd Amendment. The armed guard at the shop who shot the gunman but was then gunned down because the gunman had body armor.

Ban body armor for anyone who is not in law enforcement.

We are almost at 200 mass shootings this year and we aren’t even halfway through the year.

Last year there were over 600.

The same for the year before.

I want extra tax on guns and ammo sales to outfit every single one of us with full body armor.

Most referrals on books are not about removal - but to redirect erotic or offensive books out of youth shelves. I remember seeing The Valley of Horses by Jean Auel in the book section reserved for very young kids. The title let it get past the librarians. Once called to their attention it wasn't banned, just put in the adult stacks.

Baby formula shortages 'are leaving a lot of parents in a bind

“While mothers and fathers stare at empty grocery store shelves in a panic, the Biden Administration is happy to provide baby formula to illegal immigrants coming across our southern border,” the governor added. “This is yet another one in a long line of reckless, out-of-touch priorities from the Biden Administration when it comes to securing our border and protecting Americans. Our children deserve a president who puts their needs and survival first — not one who gives critical supplies to illegal immigrants before the very people he took an oath to serve.”


Kind of the exact opposite of America first. American infants go without while their nutrition takes a back seat to everyone else. That's Joe Biden's America. He's so generous he'd give a perfect stranger the shirt of your back, or the formula out of your baby's bottle. Of course as everyone will say in a story like this, that doesn't mean we shouldn't take care of people in need. It just means that when our own people are in need we should take care of them too.

It’s like the entire right only has one brain between the lot of you and you pass it back and forth on a timeshare.

The bulk of the state of Texas loses power for a week during a minor storm because of gross utility mismanagement, customers get handed bills for tens of thousands of dollars to power a single family home and we are told “personal responsibility” and you all preach the power of capitalism and the free market.

Oh ..and then their energy grid starts failing again and everyone is told to set their thermostats higher and conserve energy during the day and it’s only mid May.

That’s to say nothing about all of us paying more for things because Abbott spoiled a bunch of produce locking it up for days in Texas traffic while he searched the trucks for snipe. He’s like a one man inflation machine!

Baby formula companies drop the ball on manufacturing and it’s Joe Biden who is behind it personally.

Maybe the free market you all keep preaching about actually sucks. Maybe the GOP is actively sabotaging the economy again because they’re desperate to make the democrats look bad. God knows none of you sycophants could tell the difference and even if you could you’d dutifully turn you air conditioners up and pretend that hot air blowing from the GOP was a refreshing spring breeze.

The global supply chains sure aren’t working out these days. More failed capitalism. Or maybe it’s just the latest shots fired in Trump’s trade war with China. The Chinese are great at playing the long game. Trump still cheats at golf an your entire political congregation still lies about it to massage his ego.

Trump breaking the FDA and every other federal oversight institution may well have played a role in setting this up too.

Half of our government still doesn’t work two years after he left office.

Maybe that is Biden’s fault. But repairing things properly is always much more time consuming than the psychotic toddler you foisted on America took wrecking them with a sledge hammer.

So see my prior post.  Remove all left wing politicians for their inspiring of anti-fa violence.  And no disputing that their responsible, the standard you're articulating is unproven and barely sourced responsibility.   It should apply both ways.

In fact, the people who make death threats should be the ones in trouble, not the people who make the "inspiring" posts (which really aren't inspiring of the conduct).  If real people are connected to the accounts that should be easy to do.  Those death threats are coming electronically, why not dox those people.  Won't take long to week out such illegal content and then there's no more "harm."

So I should be free to create an anonymous twitter account post non stop that someone is a Nazi child abuser. Create deep fakes that purport to show them doing those things, publish their address and then be completely free of responsibility if someone gets violent against that person? Even if all that crap is false? Most of it is defamation but that's what you are arguing for, twitter can't stop me. What if my account is anonymous or located in Russia? Can't sue then, it just gets to stay up and continue defaming and ruining peoples lives? Free speech right? Twitter just has to host and broadcast to the world the most despicable content that damages reputations and lives because ... freedom?

No one is arguing that these people go to jail for their lies and disinformation. Just that we let platforms have some standards as to what is acceptable and help prevent radicalization and extremism. Should twitter have kept ISIS accounts active? Help them broadcast their message of hate to the world and recruit more followers?

There’s an import point we need to know before making that assessment.

Biden and the Democrats who voted for him are for the rights of women, you say?

"The Taliban on Saturday (May 7) imposed some of the harshest restrictions on Afghanistan's women since they seized power, ordering them to cover fully in public, ideally with the traditional burqa."

That's Biden's world. That was his decision and that is his Presidency. You don't see much about it in the news though because it doesn't fit the liberal agenda. In fact, it not only doesn't fit, it's a total embarrassment. Looking at Afghanistan before and after Biden, the idea that Democrats are willing to fight for women's rights is a bad joke.

You can say what you want about American conservatives and abortion but at least they would have let the Afghan women walk around without the burqa. Most conservatives apparently prefer they didn't even wear a Covid mask. It's ironic seeing the American liberal women fretting about the imposition of the world of The Handmaid's Tale in America while the guy they proudly voted for and still enthusiastically support ushered in that and worse for women in Afghanistan.

Weighed on the worldwide scale of women's rights, the good that conservatives did, especially Donald J. Trump, is far greater than the loss of women's rights Biden and his voters imposed.

Incidentally which branch of the armed forces are you currently serving with?

Whoever receives, conceals, or retains the same with intent to convert it to his use or gain, knowing it to have been embezzled, stolen, purloined or converted—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both;

A lot of it is loss of control of the employees.

Workplaces like having employees tied into routines,places, social structures,

It’s makes assets easier to manage and salaries easier to control. The breakdown of the office social structures alone are causing employee retention problems for many companies.

Places in more “low rent districts” are losing employees to employers coming from zones where employees get paid two or three times the salary and those employers are picking up bargains.

Then there’s a legal and taxation aspect. When an employee suddenly admits they’ve been telecommuting from Italy for the past year it can make taxation very hairy.

If this instant results do it yourself mouthwash test works out it seems like that could be a game changer.

"Among a group of 80 individuals, 26 tested positive for COVID-19 via swab testing. When that same group used a mouthwash test, the exact same 26 individuals tested positive as well. Importantly, both the nasal and mouthwash tests were of the polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) variety. Researchers say these tests are highly sensitive and capable of producing a result in real-time...

... “This sampling procedure can be conducted safely in a general practitioner’s office without extra protective equipment for physicians’ staff, as the patients themselves perform the sampling,” Dr. Hauck explains. “We usually sent the patients with the gargle solution and sampling container outside.”

All medical staff have to do is watch the patient from a window to ensure they gargle the solution and spit it back into a cup correctly.

“We need not expose trained personnel to the danger of taking samples from so many potentially infected people,” Dr. Hauck adds.


After that people who knew they were infected would just have to act responsibly and not go to Whataburger maskless sneezing and coughing all over the place without even covering their mouths.

Then you just get into the same kinds of problems as the nasal swab but at least the testing would be so much easier. We're making progress.

Hypothetically, if everyone knew if they were infected or not could that end the pandemic?

It didn't say how expensive it was but let's say it's cheap. You have your bottle of covid detecting mouthwash at home and every morning you check yourself and if it's positive you stay home or at least away from people until you get two days in a row negative. No need for masks anymore because everyone knows if they are infected or not.

I know better than to get my hopes up because too many people wouldn't do the right thing with one excuse or another and the accuracy remains to be seen especially with new variants but something like this could still make a big difference.

And besides relying on integrity, people could just be checked outside offices and schools and even malls or concerts and such just like with the fever checking gun. It would definitely be great for family gatherings and weddings where no one would want to infect their own loved ones. Hopefully it pans out.

With nearly half the country is still claiming the virus is a hoax or at most an over dramatize cold … good luck with that.

“What allegedly happened here and happened in the Madoff case is a white-collar equivalent of what goes on in a Mafia gangster case,” says Roland Riopelle, a defense attorney and former federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York who represented a Madoff employee, Annette Bongiorno, in that scandal’s aftermath. “Members of the conspiracy are encouraged to commit crimes, using the organization for their own benefit. That ultimately becomes the way in which the organization binds the individual to it and encourages loyalty.”
It’s what Riopelle calls “false generosity as a way of keeping people in place. It’s false generosity because with each gift, the recipient is sinking deeper into criminality.”

This sums it up nicely as to what is “really going on”

It’s fairly simple to see how this premise has been leveraged nationwide. Trump Allies always find themselves somehow compromised. Often the values they espouse to have are traded for short term gains promised by a morally bankrupt man. Many of his supporters have arrived at the point where they’ve become so practiced at making excuses for poor ethics they’ve talked themselves out of their own.

Now to hedge a bit with the disclaimer, the same one Seriati has been using, I admit to not knowing how many fraudulent votes were cast in the election and I have no idea whether or not it was enough to change the results. So far from what I've seen it wasn't enough to change the results since I haven't seen any proof showing otherwise. I would like some more investigation into the matter though and fail to understand how continuing to investigate possible voter fraud is wrong somehow. I will go on the record though as firmly believing that there was definitely more than one fraudulent vote cast in this election and some of those were for Democrats. Did Republicans perpetrate more voter fraud than Democrats? Did it all balance out perfectly? No idea. We need to investigate to find out exactly what happened even if it turns out that, unlikely as it seems, nothing happened at all.

It is almost impossible that there were enough fraudulent votes to change the outcome election.

In terms of not knowing, consider this analogy. I'm pretty sure that no one in my neighborhood is a murderer but I'm absolutely certain none of them are running death camps in their backyards. So I can't know for sure there isn't a murderer around, the probability of their being death squads running rampant is pretty much zero. That doesn't mean we don't pursue individual allegations of voter fraud but it does mean acting like we need to delay the certification or that there was potentially enough fraud to change the outcome is irresponsible.

Flaming Libs like Mitch McConnell have gone on record declaring there was no significant voter fraud.  It’s already been investigated to death. To see “what happened” read the transcript between Trump and Raffensperger.

If you can’t believe the testimony of your career allies then you’ve got into tinfoil hat territory where you’re still going to be arguing over who shot James Garfield a century after people have forgotten that he died from poor medical care.

A better use of investigative resources would be tracking down all the heads on the insurrection that struck the Capitol yesterday and cutting them off. That’s going to keep a lot of people busy for a very long time.

Oh.. and hatching a new security planning for congress because you can bet that our friends around the world have noticed you can take out congress with 4 bus loads of Sunday school children. The movie myth of super competent dedicated protection is gone in a poof of smoke.

Well it looks like I tested positive for the virus yesterday.  I have been feeling just a bit under the weather and woke up Tuesday morning with a 101.5 temp.  Temp is down on low 98's now and no major symptoms. Will be working from home.

Best luck with that. It really really sucks.

“We are in the timeframe now that probably for the next 60 to 90 days we're going to have more deaths per day than we had at 9/11 or we had at Pearl Harbor,” Redfield said during an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations.

Good thing it’s just the old and weak or this might be a problem.

Ok so what will be the next 70D chess move that WmLambert will bring forth that shows Trump is winning?

Well there is the plan to just get the states to send electors that don’t match the votes.

DETROIT — President Trump has invited the leaders of Michigan’s Republican-controlled state legislature to meet him in Washington on Friday, according to a person familiar with those plans, as the president and his allies continue an extraordinary campaign to overturn the results of an election he lost.

Yeah ..that’s totally business as usual.

Here's a nice summary of Biden on the border and on illegal immigration which he will for all practical purposes legalize.

I saw no mention in the article of Covid-19 but I'll throw that in there as well. Trump's immigration policies must have to some extent reduced the spread of Covid-19 in Latin America and to the United States for all the good it did anyone anyway since it's pretty much out of control in both places. It's hard to imagine that Biden's policies could make the Covid situation any worse than it already is but encouraging the restart of the migrant caravans seems like one of the best ways to do exactly that.

Got anything that isn’t an opinion piece? You call that a’s just a political hit piece.

As for COVID-19, it’s going away soon, so I’ve heard from my President. That’s a nonissue.

“Seriously? You must have exactly the same opinion as the president and his son's to each individual claim of voter fraud they make?”

Individual fraud will not be made public, especially if uncovered by an attorney, without prosecution and conviction. On that I am certain their opinion matches mine.

Why won't voter fraud be made public? Why would a crime be kept secret until the prosecution and conviction of the perpetrator?

You're getting into a circular reasoning argument here. There is no evidence of voter fraud because they would keep all the real evidence secret. When will we see anything?

How do you feel about the Dominion claims? How about the 138,000 votes in Michigan?

What’s more remarkable is the same people who are willing to take the allegations of mass fraud purely on faith will argue zealously that voter suppression isn’t real despite all of the evidence to the contrary.

The GOP has become a religion.

The biggest problem with the outgoing ones is they lack competency. Their only skill set is sucking up to Trump, For the most part it’s good riddance.

A good litmus test would be anyone who resigned or fired out of a greater sense of duty.

As for the Trump appointees that have been embedded with lifetime appointments despite being unqualified, there’s a bunch of research in Utqiaġvik that desperately needs staffing. They’re also deeply understaffed for judiciary.

I expect it will be a lot of the same, but hard to tell what's happening behind the scenes.

InB4: within the next 4 years a police action is taken on some poor schmuck nation.

Who knows? Maybe the Saudis will attack us again so we can blow up *spins globe and sticks finger random place* I’m sure Corsica has it coming...buncha socialist losers.

Will there be a Thanksgiving this year, in the modern sense?  I can't imagine tens of millions of people travelling cross country twice in a week in this environment.

It did not stop the Sturgis rally did it? Something like 40% of the population is so hardcore behind the “hoax” and “just the flu” sound bites that they will proceed as normal.

That’s a large enough portion that what the rest of people do does not matter.
