      “Kamala the Pandering, Hypocrite Goes to School” would make a delightful children’s book intended for Safe Spaces at college campuses and break rooms at social media giants’ headquarters..

      Kamala thought she was going to an Iowan nursing home to repeat the lie of Republicans planning to take away the healthcare services of the elderly. Kamala thought the residents would sit quietly in varying states of dementia and believe she really, really cares. All she wanted was a quick photo op of Karing Kamala. Kamala hoped her elder audience wouldn’t remember The Chosen One’s preference in treating the aged–give them a pain pill. But one resident did remember.

      Poor Kamala. What started out as a staged photo op to try and make her appear compassionate and caring ended rather badly.

      She wanted to be herself and really say what was on her mind but momentary political expediency didn’t permit her that freedom. She wanted to thrust her angry fist in the air and start lecturing those old, white people on how she wants to clean out whatever savings or assets they may still have in the holy name of Reparations. She wanted to call them racists for the crime of being born white. She wanted to lay blame for all the world’s woes at the feet of their walkers…..but she dared not.

      Instead, she condescended and pandered to one woman that still has the requisite capacity to see a scam artist a mile away. Instead of a tear-jerking scene Kamala hoped could be made into a sweet video clip at the Convention when she accepts the nomination, one very articulate, smart lady wasn’t having any of it. Poor Kamela. Today’s lesson during the nursing home field trip was, “Don’t urinate on my boots and tell me it’s raining.”

      Sadly for Kamala, things only got worse. She staged another photo op–gnarling away on a pork chop with bare hands. Certainly that was an inopportune moment for her climate change base that demands farm animals all become extinct–to hell with the Endangered Species list for filthy, flatulence filled cows and pigs. And then there’s those Iowa farms using big diesel guzzling tractors and chemicals necessary to produce grain to feed those soon-to-be pork chops. “How could you betray us, Kamala!?” her triggered snowflakes must be screaming in between teeth gnashes.

      “When will this hideous Fair in this hideous pig-infested state be OVER?!” poor Kamela has been overheard saying. Kamala had a very bad day at school….

      As Kamala was whisked away from the cornfields of Iowa on a climate destroying private jet, she harkened back to another photo op during the Iowa State Fair in days gone by that actually played very well because it was genuine. She recalled seeing Donald Trump arrive in Iowa on Trump Force One and children being taken on tours of the impressive plane. “Why can’t I connect with average, hardworking, law abiding, tax paying Americans like that?” Kamala wonders. Why, indeed.

You take these things for granted even as you plot to destroy them. Simply stated, your “radical plans” won’t work, and will never actually be taken seriously by anyone other than your sycophants. That isn’t useful political leadership. It will take you nowhere.

      They’re getting an early start on the VOTE Rigging for 2020…

      “Report: Critical Election Systems ‘Left Exposed Online’”

      | An exclusive report from Vice News claims that researchers have discovered that 35 critical U.S. election systems have been connected to the Internet for months despite manufacturers and election officials claiming that the machines are never online. …

      — Vice News explained that some of these voting machines are meant to only be connected to the Internet for a brief few minutes in order to rapidly deliver election results to county officials: |

      https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/08/10/report-critical-election-systems-left-exposed-online/

      Also from Vice article cited:
      | But a group of election security experts have found what they believe to be nearly three dozen backend election systems in 10 states connected to the internet over the last year, including some in critical swing states. These include systems in nine Wisconsin counties, in four Michigan counties, and in seven Florida counties—all states that are perennial battlegrounds in presidential elections.

      Some of the systems have been online for a year and possibly longer. Some of them disappeared from the internet after the researchers notified an information-sharing group for election officials last year. But at least 19 of the systems, including one in Florida’s Miami-Dade County, were still connected to the internet this week, the researchers told Motherboard.

      The researchers and Motherboard have been able to verify that at least some of the systems in Wisconsin, Rhode Island, and Florida are in fact election systems. The rest are still unconfirmed, but the fact that some of them appeared to quickly drop offline after the researchers reported them suggests their findings are on the mark.” |

        This is a challenge. Most of us are used to devices by default being connected.
        Toggling on and off is unusual.

        It may be human nature to leave these machines connected.

        From my experience, the city or county people controlling the actual mechanics of elections are partisan elected people. They are not technocrats, but must interface with the technical people.

        The technical people, advising what machines to buy and how to set them up, may generally be tech people with low knowledge of the election skullduggery that we have.

        This opens opportunity for skullduggery?

        A party guides and advises the local County Clerk? Who informs the technical person how things must be done?

      THIS is the main reason to oppose efforts to change the Electoral College. As it stands, if California submits a bazillion democrat votes, the damage is limited to their EC contribution. Without the EC, the cheaters in California determine our elections.

      • Even in the Colonial days, several of the Colonies had many times the population of all the others. (No, it wasn’t as extreme as California is today.) So, the Founders determined that the States would elect the President using the same scheme used in the House of Representatives. (DC was added later by amendment.) In 2016 we saw the wisdom of that.

        A very modest “get out the vote” campaign in California could turn out more votes in that one State than exist in the State of Wyoming. Five States would determine the popular-vote based outcome for all fifty, and a President elected in that way would find it impossible to perform his or her Office. “(S)He’s not my President … (S)He’s California’s President!”

      My mother’s late cousin was an Israeli politician/businessman. I remember him telling us, during a visit to Sweden, that he never flew with Air France. The French had made a deal with the Arab terrorist groups, paying money to avoid being hijacked. However, one never knew when the French for one reason or another stopped paying, and then they would be the prime target for the terrorists.
      I never found any reason to doubt what he told us, and this piece of news is a late confirmation of the deals the French struck with the terrorists.

      The comments by the old head of DST are pretty disgusting:
      “And it worked. There were no more attacks from the end of 1983 until late 1985. Yves Bonnet showed satisfaction with the results during his interrogation, and he refuted the term “collaboration” preferring to call the deal “non-agression”. “Afterwards they committed terror attacks in Italy for instance, but that did not worry me overly since there was nothing in France.”

        But not the Internet! Why not?

        Consider what the reports of the illegal data-dumps told us – that they can track your car as it’s driving down the street. No doubt they can locate every phone. Your “Siri” is listening to you all the time; so might your refrigerator. If you actually knew what was going on right now, would it be “okay” with you? I didn’t think so.

    • As Rudy Giuliani pointed out in another thread posted here, “prisoners know what to do with perverts.” “He was the one prisoner everyone in there most wanted to kill.” He was a marked man – and, I say, deservedly so.

      But you really don’t need a “Deep State” in this case. Prisoners and prison guards have daughters, too. This man’s unrepentant crimes were so heinous and outrageous that they weren’t going to go “unpunished.”

      There will now be raids of his island, and of his other homes say in New Mexico, and I’m sure the French will help us out in Paris. And we already know what we’re going to find more of in all of those places.

      Rudy said he was a “treasure trove of information” had he been forced to testify in Court, but I really don’t believe that. Once a liar, always a liar. Once a blackmailer, always. I say he forfeited his right to be alive, and that someone obliged him. Who cares who did it. Maybe this is the Orient Express and everybody did it. Anyway, “what needed to get done, got done.” Enjoy Hell, Mr. Epstein.

        Best thing we can do for sea critters is to dump our medium and large scale rubbish like car bodies, car tyres etc into the ocean creating reefs for little fishes and other small critters to use as homes. Medium fishes will thrive on those little fishes and big fishes will thrive on the medium ones.

      Both guards asleep, and both for three hours? What a coincidence. Were they both sleeping at the same location? Or at different locations and both awoke simultaneously? Where were they sleeping?

      There is no periodic check-in required as they make their rounds?

    Sheldon Whitehouse: “The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be “restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.”

      It truly is a small group of people whose motto is “whine till you get it.” Look at that group of senators, nothing but the elite of wards of the state. The only real achievement is to convince enough people to vote for them for free stuff they remove at the point of a gun from their productive fellow citizens. “We work they eat,” They’ve latched onto the body politic their entire lives and are sworn to destroy the very institution that allows them to be glorified bums, the USA.

      These dedicated Marxist are doing what Marxist have done since time-immemorial, destroy, divide & conquer. They create nothing but derision, lies, acrimony, hate, darkness, hopelessness, mobs and this evil is their coin that they spread it like a disease. All ballyhooed by their dutiful MSM.

    I am expecting a raid on this Google insiders home from the FBI cleanup crew shortly

    “A former Google insider claiming the company created algorithms to hide its political bias within artificial intelligence platforms – in effect targeting particular words, phrases and contexts to promote, alter, reference or manipulate perceptions of Internet content – delivered roughly 950 pages of documents to the Department of Justice’s Antitrust division Friday.

    The former Google insider, who has already spoken in to the nonprofit organization Project Veritas, met with SaraACarter.com on several occasions last week. He was interviewed in silhouette, to conceal his identity, in group’s latest film, which they say exposes bias inside the social media platform.

    Several weeks prior, the insider mailed a laptop to the DOJ containing the same information delivered on Friday, they said. The former insider is choosing to remain anonymous until Project Verita’s James O’Keefe reveals his identity tomorrow (Wednesday)

    Facebook Paid Contractors to Transcribe Users’ Audio Chats:

    Facebook Inc. has been paying hundreds of outside contractors to transcribe clips of audio from users of its services, according to people with knowledge of the work.

    The work has rattled the contract employees, who are not told where the audio was recorded or how it was obtained — only to transcribe it, said the people, who requested anonymity for fear of losing their jobs. They’re hearing Facebook users’ conversations, sometimes with vulgar content, but do not know why Facebook needs them transcribed, the people said.

    Facebook confirmed that it had been transcribing users’ audio and said it will no longer do so, following scrutiny into other companies. “Much like Apple and Google, we paused human review of audio more than a week ago,” the company said Tuesday.

      What if we had a coalition of retired GOP Congressmen who, instead of being paid talking heads on network TV, dedicated their name recognition, inside knowledge and relatively good financial security (Congress has a great retirement plan!) to various conservative causes? Or to organizing and training volunteers for any number of causes?

      We need some top down leadership that trains and organizes conservatives, helps activate them into productive and effective action.

      We need to study what they are doing, their methodology, then copy and improve the best parts and apply that to our own causes and issues.

    ICE: Undocumented immigrants in Md. rape FRIEND’s 11-year-old sister on separate occasions

    1st paragraph.

    GERMANTOWN, Md. (ABC7) — Two undocumented immigrants are accused of raping an 11-year-old girl on different occasions, the common denominator being a FRIENSHIP with the victim’s older BROTHER.

    They frame the BROTHER as the link, which in effect is blaming the 11 year old victim.

      Some excerpts out of order:

      In December 2016, an immigration judge issued Barrera-Navidad a “final order of removal.” It’s unclear why the Salvadoran national remained in the country.

      Barrera-Navidad was born in El Salvador, has four children and works for a demolition company. Up until his arrest, he was residing at his brother-in-law’s home along the 25900 block of Largo Court in Damascus.

      In 2014, federal authorities removed Palacios-Amaya from the U.S. for an undisclosed reason. The 28-year-old — who ICE referred to as a “repeat immigration violator” — returned to the U.S. on an unknown date.

      Up until his arrest, Palacios-Amaya was residing along the 18300 block of Quondal Court in Gaithersburg.

      Our laws are so f’d up. If companies were severely punished for employing illegals and if people were severely punished for housing illegals there would be very few cases like this. Add to the mess the “sanctuary city” nonsense. Meanwhile people are being killed, it seems mostly women and girls. Thanks Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats.

    Observations from a smaller limb.

    How about we take a look at what is happening in European economics.

    First the four largest economies: 2nd quarter only by GDP growth ranking.

    Spain: +0.5%
    France: +0.2%
    Italy: 0.0%
    Germany: -0.1% 🗑🗑🗑

    Annual GDP for western European countries as reported Y/Y 2nd quarter 2019. Only those that have reported 2nd quarter.

    Spain: +2.3%
    Denmark: + 2.1%
    Netherlands: +1.8%
    Portugal: +1.8%
    Austria: +1.6%
    France: +1.3%
    Belgium: + 1.2%
    Germany: +0.4%
    Italy: +0.0%

    European countries that have lived under the wonderful world of socialist governments. Also known as the old Soviet Bloc:

    Hungary: + 5.1% 🏆
    Romania: + 4.6%
    Poland: +4.1%
    Lithuania : +4.0%
    Bulgaria: +3.3%
    Latvia: +3.0%
    Czech : +2.7%
    Slovakia: + 2.5%

    European Area over all. 19 : +1.1%
    EU: 28 +1.0%

    Other information:
    E.U. Industrial production fell -1.6% M/M

    Germany has fallen into negative numbers, Italy is on the verge and France is continuing a definite slide down.. Meanwhile Eastern Europeans are still doing well.

    2020 is going to extremely interesting to watch, PDJT seems to have this timed perfectly as noted by Sundance earlier. Can you see the wedge ? An announcement of U.S. troops moving to Poland from Germany, if done, will be a hit with a sledge hammer.

      You want to nail Comey for his many abuses of his power and position. For something illegal and big that he unquestionably did do. Hit him with the biggest baseball bat you’ve got.

          He’s obviously guilty of the referral charges but they are relatively minor and depend on interpretations of the relevant laws. No Prosecutor wants to risk taking such a charge before a DC jury where 95% of the jurors will be registered Democrats employed by the Federal government or its contractors. An almost certain Not Guilty verdict regardless of the evidence would risk harming future prosecution on much more serious charges that Barr may bring.

          Note that the declination is reversible at any time. It’s a case of “not now”, not one of “not ever”.
