Open Thread

Trump is doing wonders for peace in the Middle East. The Palestinians fired off a few rockets at Israel, but that is just the pointless action of people being left behind. Only the Palestinian leadership and the Mullahs have an interest in continued war in the Middle East, and Trump has sidelined both of them. Trump should get a Nobel Prize for all this but he won’t because the entire global Ruling Class is garbage.

Who will win November 3rd? I think Trump will; but I don’t know. No one knows. Its all about whether the Love Trump+Fear Dems outnumber the Hate Trump people. For those of you who would like some good insights into what is happening on the ground, I suggest checking in from time to time with Larry Schweikart, M Joseph Sheppard and Cotto/Gottfried. They’re not mindless boosters but they also aren’t doom-and-gloom naysayers. They are, as far as I can tell, giving out info they think is correct. They are all on Twitter so, sorry Amazona!

Senator Cotton wants to undo China’s Most Favored Nation status. This is something we never should have given to China. But whatever merits it ever had, it is clear that China treats us as an enemy, so we might as well be realistic about such things and cut them off from our markets.

Are the ChiComs funding BLM? They’d be the most amazingly stupid people who ever lived if they aren’t. For China, BLM does two things: harms American unity while also allowing China to say, “see, America has civil rights problems, too.” All we know is that at the drop of a hat, BLM has rioters wherever wanted and bail money is provided very fast. Someone is funding BLM…and it isn’t American patriots.

Air Force says they are already test flying a 6th generation fighter. If so, good. Air superiority plus Naval supremacy are the twin pillars of American power. They allow us to intervene whenever we want to at minimal risk to American safety.

Suzie Sorority has become a BLM radical...and, as you suspect, it is because she’s been made insane by Progressive propaganda at college. But now, in Lancaster, PA, at least these upper class Bolsheviks are facing million dollar bail.

    China funding BLM? Makes sense. They fund the NBA which is just an extension of BLM so why not? BLM also distracts the media from China’s human rights violations against the people of Hong Kong and the Uyghor’s.

    Black Lives Matters are targeting police for assassination across the country. You would think the media would mention that?

    Have you all heard that Joe Rogan invited Trump and Biden to debate on his podcast? Trump accepted within hours, no word from Biden.

    • Retired Spook September 16, 2020 / 2:56 pm

      I heard Biden misunderstood and thought it was an ad for Rogaine.

    • M. Noonan September 16, 2020 / 9:33 pm

      The conventional wisdom is that Biden can’t debate: personally, I think their plan is to lower expectations so much so that when he accepts a debate, the fact that he didn’t drool will count as a win. Not sure if it will work: not sure if the Democrat overall strategy will work. But it seems to be stealth candidate plus fear-mongering and making everyone miserable so they’ll vote Biden just to end it all.

      • Cluster September 17, 2020 / 7:27 am

        Biden will not debate. In my opinion, he or someone on his staff will come down with COVID shortly before the debates and then they will all “follow the science and quarantine”. That’s my guess anyway. Biden is no shape to stand on a stage and debate Trump or anyone for that matter.

    The genius’s are at it again on MSNBC. The panel is decrying the “name calling” and the “disparaging” tones Trump uses towards illegal immigrants and the panel fears for their lives and their safety.

    Unfortunately they didn’t have the presence of mind to apply the same standard to themselves in regards to the police. Maybe next time

    Also I briefly heard Rush do a segment on the toxic masculinity article we discussed yesterday. Rush has been talking about this however for 20 yeas and unfortunately it’s unfolding before our eyes.

      All this bogus hysteria about “fearing for their lives” is getting really old. With some it is probably just hyperbole, but some are so stupid I think they believe it. I remember a black woman not long ago insisting that a restaurant manager walk her to her car after an armed law enforcement officer entered the restaurant, because she was afraid he would shoot her down in the parking lot.

      She may have had a point, if stupidity were ever a legitimate cause for shooting someone.

      My point is, as the Left continually ramps up the shrill hysteria, I think they push more people into a binary decision—Do I buy into the hysteria and squeal with the rest of them, or do I finally realize they are full of poo and start looking for smarter people to hang out with (and vote for)?

      In the meantime I am still waiting for someone to point out that a vote for Trump is a vote for Trump, while a vote for Biden is a vote for ?????

      • Cluster September 17, 2020 / 8:16 am

        A couple days ago MSNBC had 2 Trump voters on and 2 Biden voters on and asked each voter about their decision. Both the Trump voters were able to list the accomplishments of Trump … lower taxes, great economy, no new wars, new trade deals etc. When the Biden voters were asked of their decision, both of them could only point to how bad Trump is … neither Biden voter listed any accomplishments or anything that excited them about Biden. Only that he wasn’t Trump.

    We definitely need more POC right? White people are born evil and racist and are, let’s face it, irredeemable. That’s the media narrative right? If only we could be more like those more tolerant countries governed by people of color who could show us the right way. Maybe something like this:

    A teenager has been gang-raped by at least 11 men and thrown to her death off a six-floor building in Somali capital Mogadishu.

    Such beautiful societies.

    So according to CDC chief Redfield, masks protect you from Covid more than a vaccine will. Got that? And remember, we’re just going to “flatten the curve” so hospitals aren’t over run. If you don’t think the “experts” and ruling class are conditioning the public to wear masks and comply with government then you’re not paying attention:

    “Face masks are the most important powerful public health tool we have,” Dr. Robert Redfield testified to Congress on Wednesday. “We have clear scientific evidence they work, and they are our best defense.”

    This is Orewellian shit people, resist at all costs.

    • Retired Spook September 17, 2020 / 12:39 pm

      “We have clear scientific evidence they work, and they are our best defense.”

      Actually, according to the CDC’s own multi-decade metadata, that is a LIE!

      The Democrat militia is now branching our from just shooting cops

      I haven’t seen or heard it said anywhere else, but it seems to me that the “Democrat militia” is nothing more than the Klan in different clothes. The Democrat Party has about as close as you can get to a total monopoly on violence as a political tactic, and it’s going to come back to bite them in the ass at some point.

        Listen to the podcast of today’s Glenn Beck show—he goes down the list of the 7 pillars of overthrowing a government, and the ability to mobilize tens of thousands of violent activists is one of them.

      • Retired Spook September 17, 2020 / 5:22 pm

        I heard Glenn outline the “7 pillars” on his show today as well. I’m back to listening to him again after a long hiatus. I still tend to think he over-reacts, at least I hope he’s over-reacting. I’ve often said the last thing I want to do in this life is shoot another American, even in defense of myself, my family and my home. My worst fear is that they’ll give us no choice. I guess I’ll know well in advance before that kind of violence ever gets to rural northeast Indiana. I know a number of guys younger and more gung ho than I am who are chomping at the bit for a fight. Once it starts, there’s no dialing it back until one side cries uncle, and I don’t think most folks on both sides have thought it through completely. We will be forever changed by a fight for the soul of this country.

    Black Lives Matter is funded by China:

    Alicia Garza, 39, is the principal of Black Futures Lab, an advocacy group she created two years ago that is funded by a US-based group linked to the Chinese Communist Party….. The New York Post reports that the group is receiving funding from the San Francisco-based Chinese Progressive Association with ties to the People’s Republic of China.

    But no worries folks. FBI director Christopher Wray has his eye on the ball and knows the dangers this country faces:

    F.B.I. Director Warns of Russian Interference and White Supremacist Violence

    That’s right. According to the FBI, white supremacists have been raging through this country all summer. Good job FBI.

    Why in the hell does Wray still have a job??

      I smell a fall guy coming on November 4th when it all goes down the crapper.

    • Amazona September 18, 2020 / 10:27 am

      I wondered something similar about Wray when I started to hear his warnings about the Russians trying to interfere with the election and posting bad mean nasty stuff about Biden.

      He says “… he did not know off the top of his head the exact number of cases the FBI has opened into white supremacists, he said racially motivated violent extremists in recent years have been responsible for the most lethal activity”. Really? How lethal? Define “lethal”. How many people have died in white supremacist activity? How many cops have been killed? Injured? How many buildings burned? How many businesses destroyed? How many people beaten, threatened, intimidated? Don’t stop there, Chris, and stop your weasel-wording. We all know you are right when you say ” racially motivated violent extremists in recent years have been responsible for the most lethal activity” we just know it isn’t “white supremacist” activity. We have TV sets, Chris.

      Planet Wray must be a quirky place, where white supremacists fight shoulder to shoulder with black activists and promote Black Lives Matter and the Leftist government of Russia is trying to defeat the Leftist candidate in the United States.

        Well, when you put it like that, it does sound kind of ridiculous.

      • Amazona September 18, 2020 / 10:45 am

        To quote from the Prager article DB cited, On the left, the concept of objective truth is increasingly deemed a form of white supremacy.

        Which is handy, as with this definition any effort to make sense of anything is an admission of being a white supremacist. But then, so is saying a person has to have female genitals to be considered a woman, or that 2+2 can only equal 4, or that bowel movements on public streets are not acceptable, or that taking the property of others is theft, or any of the other tenets of sanity and civilization that now only prove how awful a person is.

        For many years I have been saying that Liberalism is the short cut to the Higher Moral Ground—all you ever had to do was be FOR something that sounded moral or noble and you were there, no matter whether or not you ever did anything. But that isn’t true any more. Now to be “woke” you don’t have to pay lip service to what is moral, you have to reject it, defy it and try to destroy it.

      • Amazona September 18, 2020 / 11:57 am

        OK, there is the lack of a moral compass, and then there is the lack of intellect. There is insane, and there is just plain stupid, and on the Left the two are not only not mutually exclusive they seem to be interdependent. There is stupid, and then there is dumb as a box of hair.

        Case in point: Why it is racist for white people to have dogs.

        Why White People Owning Dogs is Racist

        Shortly after the Eurasian people worked so hard to train and bond with wolves, most of them were shipped off and given to Europeans.

        These filthy white savages took the work and credit from the Eurasian people and branded these magnificent creatures as their own.

        The need for white people to claim premade or pre-discovered things is not isolated to just this incident. Countless times in history, whites have been caught stealing the work and talent of POC for their own success.


        “Filthy white savages”—but I’ll bet he claims he is not a racist.

    Has everyone heard Trump’s speech yesterday yesterday at the National Archives? Worth a listen if you haven’t — only 18 minutes. The complicit agenda media is calling it “racially divisive” and “bizzare.” I don’t know how anyone with an ounce of intellectual honesty could come to that conclusion. If anything it was racially uniting. They are on the run folks.

    It appears Democrats are not too keen on Trump filling the vacancy on SCOTUS before the election.

    Democrats threaten violence if GOP fills SCOTUS vacancy: ‘Burn the entire f***ing thing down’

    ‘Over our dead bodies. Literally.’

    Since it will be almost exclusively blue cities and states they’ll be burning down, I’m OK with that. I’m OK with the “over our dead bodies” part too — more than OK.

    Rush was talking about this article yesterday. Great analysis.

    • dbschmidt September 19, 2020 / 8:06 pm

      Read the article and it makes a lot of sense in this land of no sense. I have often wondered what makes a President Trump the plague of mankind? He has fulfilled a great many of his promises unlike any in history. Apparently stands for the Constitution–which a great deal of his advisories despise. I would have to venture that a great deal of these “activists” and just people in general are no longer educated in the least about government. If they were–we would not have Sen, Pelosi.

      There is too much to bring forth in even just an article–this might be the end of the world as some of us old-timers remember, With that I am one of the young old timers and have considered outside of Casper (friend) and at the base of the mountains in Arizona (miles South of Scottsdale)

      Doesn’t count until we see if the election is won or stolen.,

        I’m south of Casper and happen to have plenty of room for a select few if there is a need to hide out from a zombie apocalypse. The property I bought has a couple of cabins on it and I’m at the end of the road, easy to get to but hard to find, with less wind than Casper. (An old oil field exec once told me he had lived all over the world, and Casper Wyoming was the only place he ever lived where the wind was so strong he had whitecaps in his toilet.) Wyoming is the last sane state, as far as I can tell.
