Open Thread

Virtue means doing the right thing, in relation to the right person, at the right time, to the right extent, in the right manner, and for the right purpose. Thus, to give money away is quite a simple task, but for the act to be virtuous, the donor must give to the right person, for the right purpose, in the right amount, in the right manner, and at the right time. - Aristotle

    Exactly why you should NEVER give money to the homeless sitting around begging – rather ask them if they’re hungry, if they need shoes, blankets, etc. If you give them money a small fraction will use it appropriately, the large majority will use it for drugs/alcohol and you will be enabling them.

    So Trump disparaged nations of Africa along with El Salvador and Haiti.

    Just like the Democrats have done over and over.

    Democrats keep using claims that other nations are “shitholes” (they don’t use that word, but their meaning is clear) to justify granting more and more people refugee status – and those people come here and become generational welfare cases.

    So I’m hearing stories DAILY about how companies are raising wages, giving a substantial bonus payment to employees (in at least one case to all but senior executives – who obviously don’t need it) and are now giving more benefits due to two changes brought about not necessarily BY Trump but BECAUSE OF Trump – things that you know would not have happened had Hillary been elected.

    1) Beginning of the end for obamacare – elimination of the mandate.

    2) Tax reform bill.

    “Dick” Durban has gone on record claiming Trump really did say “shithole” and is lying when he denies using that exact term.

    I know from experience that the way you can tell when “Dick” Durban is lying is: His lips move.

  5. Feet2Fire says:

    Getting back to the “SH*THOLE” word choice that upset the whole Lib-world:

    Nobody has offered any actual PROOF of the exact wording that Trump used, and until they do, am assuming he most likely said “hellhole.” A hellhole is probably a little tamer language than the word he’s accused of using, and it probably was NOT DIRTY ENOUGH to satisfy the LYIN’ DEMS whose biggest goal in life is to destroy Trump. So somebody decided to up the ante and claim he said “sh*thole”… We have only the Dems’ and a RINO’s word for it, and they both have terrible CQs (Credibility Quotients). So until they can prove with a video or audiotape that he said the more scatological term, we’re going with HELLHOLE. And America does NOT need any more HELLHOLIANS among us!

    By the way, here’s a clear example of Trump using the word “hellhole” to describe an area that has been ruined by run-amok migration:

    “You go to Brussels — I was in Brussels a long time ago, 20 years ago, so beautiful, everything is so beautiful — it’s like living in a hellhole right now,” Trump continued.

    It’s what “Mad Cow” and other lunatic liberal media elites really want, actually:

    Rachel Maddow Show Sparked FBI Investigation Into Death Threats Against McConnell, Pruitt

    NOTE: The Mad Cow’s show was a rant against the fact Republicans used the same “nuclear option” against Democrats that they had first used against them years ago – and “Mad Cow” praised them for doing it!

    An individual admitted to sending threatening tweets against the Senate majority leader and Environmental Protection Agency administrator, according to the EPA’s inspector general investigation document, first reported by E&E News.

    The unidentified person from Paragould, Ark., said they sent the tweets when they were “drinking while watching the Rachel Maddow show.”

    The threats were serious enough for the Office of Investigations to open a joint inquiry with the FBI, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the Tulsa Police Department in Oklahoma.

    Later, “Mad Cow” falsely accused Republicans of “getting rid of rules that had been there forever” when in fact it was the Democrats who invoked the nuclear option and did away with the filibuster, not Republicans.

    Media praised the ‘nuclear option’ when Democrats did it

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow assured her viewers at the time that “judges can be blocked on an up-or-down vote, a majority vote, like always.

    Schumer regrets Dems triggering ‘nuclear option’

    Reid, Democrats trigger ‘nuclear’ option; eliminate most filibusters on nominees
    Published: November 21, 2013

    Democrats used a rare parliamentary move to change the rules so that federal judicial nominees and executive-office appointments can advance to confirmation votes by a simple majority of senators, rather than the 60-vote supermajority that has been the standard for nearly four decades.

    In the long term, the rule change represents a substantial power shift in a chamber that for more than two centuries has prided itself on affording more rights to the minority party than any other legislative body in the world.

  8. Bodhisattva says:

    Did you hear? Trump kissed a girl!

    And the media thinks this is what will bring him down… today, anyway.

    The story contradicts itself:

    Mr. Trump faced other allegations during his campaign of inappropriate behavior with women, and vehemently denied them. In this matter, there is no allegation of a nonconsensual interaction.


    Another adult-film star, Jessica Drake, later alleged in an October 2016 news conference that Mr. Trump kissed her and two other women without permission in a hotel suite after the same 2006 golf event.

    A White House official responded to questions about Ms. Drake by referring to a previous statement by the Trump campaign, which called her account “totally false and ridiculous.”

    “These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election,” a White House official said, responding to the allegation “This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client. You have attempted to perpetuate this false narrative for over a year; a narrative that has been consistently denied by all parties since at least 2011.”

    And they waited at least 5 and in some cases 10 years to speak out. Waited until he was running for President to speak out.

    And I hear, according to the LIEberal media anyway, Trump eats babies for breakfast.

    Amy = moonbat

    You may ask what this has to do with Haiti (although any president with a competent staff would have this information at his fingertips). Here’s the answer, White House staff: Napoleon wanted to sell this fabulously valuable piece of New World real estate because for more than a decade he had failed to put down the startling slave revolution in the French colony of Haiti, losing two-thirds of French forces there in the process.

    The First Consul (that’s Napoleon, Mr. President) could see the writing on the wall. France was pushed to the limit of its military and financial means by the Haitian uprising, and the future emperor (NB: also Napoleon) had lost his taste for further involvement in the Americas. He sold us Louisiana. Then on January 1, 1804, Haiti declared its independence from France, and by extension, from white men like Donald Trump.

    Trump’s Immigration Remarks Outrage Many, but Others Quietly Agree?

    Wrong – I agree LOUDLY!

    The political reality is that migration has become a salient issue — and not only for right-wing, populist and nativist politicians. There are concerns about demographic change, as the world becomes less white and as western societies age.

    Moreover, the chaos and violence that have driven people from the Middle East, Southwest Asia and sub-Saharan Africa – due in no small part to Obama’s policies – to seek to live elsewhere, even as far away as Australia and Canada, have also raised fears about refugees who do not appreciate the values of the countries hosting them — or even worse, fears of terrorists taking advantage of humanitarian policies to infiltrate societies and then carry out attacks.

    Remember, even claims of what he allegedly said are being questioned.

    And then there’s this:

    Most Agree with Trump that Illegal Immigration Increases Crime

    Fifty-three percent (53%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe illegal immigration increases the level of serious crime in America, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just five percent (5%) think illegal immigration decreases the level of serious crime in this country, while 33% say it has no impact on crime.

    Voters remain overwhelmingly positive about immigrants who come to the United States to work hard, support their families and pursue the American Dream. The problem is that just 54% now believe that is what most immigrants have in mind.

    That means a growing number, now as many as 46%, understand that a primary motive of many illegal immigrants is to get welfare for life by coming here.

    Liberal moonbats are always going on about how many people the U.S. has in prison and how we have more than any other nation. Well…

    94% of incarcerated aliens are in US illegally

    94% of aliens currently held in federal prisons are in the country illegally, according to a new report from the Department of Justice.

    “Nearly 95 percent of confirmed aliens in our federal prisons are here illegally. We know based on sentencing data that non-citizens commit a substantially disproportionate number of drug-related offenses, which contributes to our national drug abuse crisis,” said Sessions.

    “The simple fact is that any offense committed by a criminal alien is ultimately preventable. One victim is too many. It’s time for Congress to enact the president’s immigration reform agenda so that we start welcoming the best and brightest while turning away drug dealers, gang members, and other criminals,”he added.

    The report also details the number of “known or suspected” illegal aliens in federal jails as 58,766, which accounts for 31% of all federal prisoners. This number is up from the previously reported statistic of 25% as reported several years ago.

    If we were tougher on immigration we would have nearly 1/3 less people, a reduction of nearly 60,000, in federal prisons.

  16. Bodhisattva says:

    More FAKE NEWS, apparently:

    Media outlets are somewhat obsessed with whether Trump accurately described some nations as “shitholes” or not, but they’re also waiting in the wings with a story about a porn star who was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about some encounter she had with Trump.

    Only she denies the story has any merit.

    The paper described a plot by the Trump campaign to pay off an adult film actress who had been negotiating with Good Morning America for an exclusive interview about her brief affair with the president in 2006, just one year after he married Melania Trump.

    According to the WSJ, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen arranged a $130,000 payment to the Stephanie Clifford, who 10 years ago was one of the biggest adult film stars in the US, working as “Stormy Daniels.” In exchange, she had to sign an NDA barring her from discussing her experiences with Trump.

    While the WSJ had previously reported the rumor about the GMA negotiations, the paper’s latest report goes much further. It describes how Cohen arranged for the payment to be made through Clifford’s lawyer, and how Clifford signed an NDA explaining she couldn’t talk about it… which she apparently is doing now.

    While WSJ wasn’t able to speak with Clifford, Cohen was kind enough to send over a two-paragraph statement by email addressed “TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN” and signed by “Stormy Daniels” denying that she had a “sexual and/or romantic affair” with the president.

    “Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement said.

    Watch Chris Matthews Joke About His ‘Bill Cosby Pill’ Before Interviewing Hillary Clinton

    On January 5, 2016, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews interviewed Hillary Clinton in an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season. Network footage obtained by the Cut shows Matthews, during the interview setup, making a couple of “jokes” about Clinton. He asks, “Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” And then, as he waits for the water, he adds, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then laughs, delighted with the line, for an extended moment, as the staffers around him react with disbelief, clearly uncomfortable. (Cosby has been accused of sexual impropriety by dozens of women, some of whom allege that they were drugged and raped by the comedian.)

    Matthews has a long history of talking disparagingly about Hillary Clinton, whom he once called “witchy,”and often seems to channel what a hypothetical sexist Republican might say about a woman candidate: “she-devil,” “Madame Defarge.” In 2005, he wondered whether the troops would “take the orders” from a (female) President Clinton. “Is she hemmed in by the fact that she’s a woman and can’t admit a mistake,” he asked in 2006, “or else the Republicans will say, ‘Oh, that’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind,’ or ‘another fickle woman’? Is her gender a problem in her ability to change her mind?” He once pinched her cheek following an interview, and, though he later apologized, on another occasion suggested that she only got as far as she did on the political stage because her husband had “messed around.”

    Montecito is best known as a getaway for the rich and famous — the median home price among current listings is more than $4 million.,-tragedy-mount-for-California-mudslide-town

    Most of the people of Montecito, a town usually known for its serenity and luxury, were under orders to stay out of town as gas and power were expected to be shut off Saturday for repairs.

    Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown on Thursday expanded what was known as the public safety exclusion zone to incorporate most of the town. That meant even those who had stayed behind would have to leave and those who entered the zone would be subject to arrest.

    “It is a little frustrating,” said Sarah Ettman, whose home was undamaged and whose section of town still had gas and electricity. “It’s martial law here, basically.”

    However, with most utilities about to be cut off and sewage running into the nearby creek, she decided to heed the order to leave.

    “I mean you’re losing all your basic health and sanitation services,” she said. “When those go down, you have to leave.”

    Turns out Canada isn’t so “immigrant friendly” and “immigrant welcoming” after all!

    Nearly half of Canadians support “increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally,” according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Monday. The same share said they supported sending migrants that crossed from the United States right back over the border, while just 36 percent said Canada should accept them and let them apply for refugee status.

    Illegal Immigrants May Not Find Warm Welcome in Canada
    A new poll shows nearly half of Canadians want border-crossers sent back to the United States.

    Male Models Accuse Photographers Mario Testino and Bruce Weber of Sexual Misconduct

    This morning, the New York Times reported that multiple male models and assistants have accused photographers Mario Testino and Bruce Weber of sexual misconduct. Representatives for both photographers said they were blindsided by the allegations. “I’m completely shocked and saddened by the outrageous claims being made against me, which I absolutely deny,” Weber said in a statement from his lawyer.

    The obvious question, again, is if this has been going on so long and has affected so many, why are we just hearing about it now?

    And as we are about to see, it was no secret…

    ‘Terrifying and humiliating’: male models accuse fashion photographer Bruce Weber of sexual harassment

    The wave of sexual misconduct scandals rolling through Hollywood, politics and the fashion world has engulfed another high-profile fashion personality, with photographer Bruce Weber facing accusations of harassment from not one, but two male models.

    Last week, the New York Post reported that model Jason Boyce was suing Weber for inappropriate touching during a December 2014 casting session at Weber’s flat. Yesterday, a second accuser, model Mark Ricketson, held a press conference with Boyce to say that Weber had also harassed him in a similar context.

    Both men described separate experiences of meeting Weber for casting sessions during which the photographer, known for his sexually charged work, instructed them to remove their clothes, fondle themselves and then engage in sexual activity.

    His M.O. was well known. People didn’t go into this blind or not knowing what to expect. It was known and condoned.

    Weber has built his career on sexually suggestive images of sweat-slicked, muscular models, most prominently for Calvin Klein and Abercrombie & Fitch, and glossy portraits of Hollywood stars. His nickname in the late 1980s was ‘starmaker’ for his power to catapult models to fame.

    These “models” sought him out – wanted something from him – clearly were willing to do what had to be done for their shot at fame and glory. And now they complain.

    Women taking their right to go topless to state’s high court

    In a case that pits freedom of expression and equality against public decency, three women are challenging a New Hampshire city ordinance prohibiting public nudity and taking it to the state’s highest court.

    Heidi Lilley, Kia Sinclair and Ginger Pierro were ticketed in 2016 in Laconia after they went topless at Weirs Beach over Memorial Day weekend. Pierro was doing yoga, while the other two were sunbathing.

    Some beachgoers complained and a police officer asked them to cover up. When they refused, they were arrested. A legal motion to dismiss a case against the women was denied so they have appealed it to the New Hampshire Supreme Court, which is expected to hear the case Feb. 1. The women want the court to dismiss their conviction by invalidating the city’s ordinance.

    The three women argue there’s no state law forbidding female toplessness and that the ordinance is discriminatory since men are allowed to go shirtless. They also contend their constitutional rights to freedom of expression were violated.

    “The law in the state of New Hampshire is that it is legal for a woman to go topless so we’re trying to get the town of Laconia to recognize and to stay with the state,” Lilley said. “The town ordinance, in our opinion, is not constitutional. We’re hoping the Supreme Court will see that.”

    Caption of photo at link (above):

    In this Aug. 26, 2017 photo, women go topless as they participate in the Free the Nipple global movement during Go Topless Day at Hampton Beach, N.H.


    Don’t get your hopes up, guys. I spent a lot of time in the USN in Europe, and the women who went topless on those beaches were the women nobody wanted to see topless; the attractive girls were all modestly dressed. No doubt it will be the same here; beaches will become horror shows if these wymyn win.

    Land whales are not people thus they don’t have human rights.

    Unfortunately, the women that want to go topless are not the ones you want to see.

    (some “artistic license” was taken with this article… see link for original)

    Officers in Ceres have arrested a man who allegedly shot and killed his own mother after an argument.

    The incident happened Thursday night at a home along 1300 block of River Valley Circle in the city of Ceres.

    Officers responded to the scene a little before 10 p.m. to investigate, and found a 68-year-old woman who had been shot in the head. She was taken to the hospital but later died from her injuries.

    Investigators believe the woman’s son, 28-year-old Matthew Nicholson, was in [her basement] playing video games and apparently got upset and started yelling. The mother went [down] to check on him, but an argument between the two soon followed.

    Nicholson allegedly broke the headset to his game, blamed his mom and threatened to kill her.

    At some point, Nicholson got a handgun and shot two rounds into the wall then another shot at his mother, investigators say.

    Moby Says CIA Agents Asked Him to Spread the Word About Trump and Russia
    “They said, like, ‘Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that… sort of put it out there.’”

    Last February, following the Presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, Moby posted on social media claiming to have insider information on connections between the Trump administration and Russia. The producer/DJ said that “after talking to friends in DC,” he had allegedly learned that the Fusion GPS dossier was “100% real” and that the Russian government was “blackmailing” the president. Now, in a new interview with WFPK in Louisville, Kentucky, Moby has doubled down on his claims (as CoS points out).

    Talking with WFPK’s Kyle Meredith, Moby cited “active and former CIA agents” who were “truly concerned” about Trump’s collusion with Russia. “They were like, ‘This is the Manchurian Candidate, like [Putin] has a Russian agent as the President of the United States,’” he said. “So they passed on some information to me and they said, like, ‘Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that … sort of put it out there.’”

    He added, “It’s really disturbing and it’s going to get quite a lot darker. Like the depths of the Trump family in business and their involvement with organized crime, sponsored terrorism, Russian oligarchs, it’s really dark. I guess we should all, like, fasten our seat belts and hold on.”

    Bradley Manning is considering running for office

    Manning eyes U.S. Senate seat for Maryland

    Manning, the transgender U.S. Army soldier who served seven years in military prison for leaking classified data, is seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Maryland, according to Federal election filings seen on Saturday.

    Manning, who was granted clemency by former U.S. President Barack Obama, was released in May from a U.S. military prison in Kansas where he had been serving time for passing secrets to the WikiLeaks website in the biggest breach of classified data in the history of the United States.

    Democratic Senator Ben Cardin was elected in 2006 to that seat and is expected to run for re-election this year. He is the senior Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

    Cardin was easily re-elected in 2012, beating his Republican challenger by 30 points in the heavily-Democratic state.

    There are idiots who walk around with the face of Ernesto Che Guevara on their shirt and they have no idea that he was a Communist mass murderer. But hey, who needs history?

  35. Bodhisattva says:

    Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña (Fort of Saint Charles), colloquially known as La Cabaña, is an 18th-century fortress complex, the third-largest in the Americas, located on the elevated eastern side of the harbor entrance in Havana, Cuba. The fort rises above the 200-foot (60 m) hilltop, along with Morro Castle.

    In January 1959, communist rebels led by Fidel Castro seized La Cabaña; the defending Cuban Army unit offered no resistance and surrendered. Che Guevara used the fortress as a headquarters and military prison for several months. During his five-month tenure in that post (January 2 through June 12, 1959), Guevara oversaw the revolutionary tribunals and executions of suspected war criminals, political prisoners, and former members of Buró de Represión de Actividades Comunistas, Batista’s secret police, massacred or disappeared.

    Guevara remains a hated figure amongst many in the Cuban exile and Cuban-American community of the United States, who view him with animosity as “the butcher of La Cabaña”.

  36. Bodhisattva says:

    Che Guevara’s granddaughter poses semi-naked for animal rights… with a string of carrots for ammo.

    Her grandfather fought to overthrow the corrupt Batista regime and replace it with something far worse.

    Lydia Guevara is simply fighting for attention.

    The granddaughter of the Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara has posed semi-naked with bandoliers of baby carrots slung across her
    shoulders in an advertisement promoting vegetarianism.


    Lydia Guevara, on the set of the PETA photoshoot, wore a red beret and bandoliers of carrots.

    And she made sure to wear the iconic beret so associated with the famous grandfather she never knew.

    Miss Guevara, 24, has been recruited by animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, who’ve blown it again by revealing their hatred for humans by conjuring the memory of Castro’s private executioner, a mass murderer who knew nothing of “ethical treatment”.

    Let’s recall the real “Che” and try to discern why many supposedly democratic, civil libertarian liberals still swoon over this Stalinist mass-murderer.

    He’s the original SJW:

    The (communist) party line says Che personifies the selfless humanitarian courageously fighting for “social justice.”

    The real Guevara was a reckless bourgeois adrenaline-junkie seeking a place in history as a liberator of the oppressed.

    But this fanatic’s vehicle of “liberation” was Stalinism, named for Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, murderer of well over 20 million of his own people.

    As one of Castro’s top lieutenants, Che helped steer Cuba’s revolutionary regime in a radically repressive direction.

    Soon after overthrowing Batista, Guevara choreographed the executions of hundreds of Batista officials without any fair trials.

    He thought nothing of summarily executing even fellow guerrillas suspected of disloyalty and shot one himself with no due process.

    Che was a purist political fanatic who saw everything in stark black and white.

    Therefore he vociferously opposed freedoms of religion, speech, press, assembly, protest, or any other rights not completely consistent with his North Korean-style communism.

    How many rock music-loving teens sporting Guevara t-shirts today know their hero supported Cuba’s 1960s’ repression of the genre?

    How many homosexual fans know he had gays jailed?

    Did the Obama volunteers in that Texas campaign headquarters with Che’s poster on the wall know that Guevara fervently opposed any free elections?

    Oh, wait, what the DNC and Hillary did to poor Bernie “B.S.” Sanders, and they still voted in droves for Hillary, proves they do not accept the need for free and fair elections and in fact they apparently fervently oppose them as well.

    Guevara was such a zealous ideologue that he relished the specter of millions of Cuban lives sacrificed on the altar of communism, declaring Cuba “a people ready to sacrifice itself to nuclear arms, that its ashes might serve as a basis for new societies.”

    Che was a narcissist who boasted that “I have no house, wife, children, parents, or brothers; my friends are friends as long as they think like me, politically.”

    Adding to the ridiculousness of the Che cult is that he was virtually a complete failure. But then again, typically, so are the moonbats who worship him.

    As a medical doctor, he never even had a practice.

    When put in charge of the Cuban economy at the start of Castro’s government, his uncompromising communist diktats ran it completely into the ground, from which it never recovered.

    Humiliated, and also angry that Castro wasn’t fomenting enough revolution abroad, he then tried to lead such quixotic adventures in Argentina, the Congo, and Bolivia, failing miserably everywhere while sacrificing the lives of scores of naïve, idealistic young followers as deluded pawns in the service of his personality cult.

    Though he preached sexual purity to his colleagues, he was a shameless adulterer who abandoned two wives and many children, some legitimate, others not.

    The public Che who supposedly had such great love for humanity privately couldn’t stand most folks.

    Guevara’s promiscuous communist adventurism was the pattern of a terminal adolescent running away from his problems to get caught up in some heroic crusade against his eternal bete noir, “Yankee imperialism.”

    Open cesspools, which, in fact, they are. And if you have any doubts, just take a whiff of the Tiajuana River, which crosses the border from Mexico into the U.S. right at one of the busiest border crossings in the entire U.S.

    Open cesspool indeed.
