The Babylon Bee won the Internet today:

’A troubling new survey released by The Babylon Bee confirmed Wednesday that too many people think Snopes is a real fact-checking website.

The survey found that over 60% of people believe Snopes is a real website, while only 25% understand that it's satire. The remaining minority thinks that Snopes is the name of a gangsta rapper from California, "one of those guys who makes the hip-hop about the devil's lettuce and shooting people."‘


Snopes should really just pack it in. They’ve been had.

Soooo.... who's next to have suicide committed?

-ex cell-mate of Epstein's? Desperately wants to move-- told to "shut up"?
-well-known UK asset/"Mysterious Russian" Mifsud aka DiGabriele? He gave
an audio deposition before going into hiding.
-Prince Harry? Nah-- but more pics of him w/ V. Roberts, and he's been
quote "shitting himself" lately.
-Epstein's pilot? He testified flew Harry and Roberts together.
-Virginia Roberts? Maxwell? Kellen? Marcinkova?
-Dr.Robert Epstein? (unfortunate surname these days) On Cankle's shit-list
cuz he testified Goolag manipulated "at least" 2.6 million votes for Hill

surely we missed a few promising candidates

Tomcc said...

I'm still pondering that post from a few days ago featuring Dean Baquet's "town hall".
One of the staffers made the statement:"I just feel like racism is in everything."
Stunning.
I would be concerned if this was said by a person of "color".
I would be even more concerned if they are not.
If the transcript is accurate, no one in the room challenged the assertion. Gotta love the free give and take of ideas!

I don't understand why that would be so upsetting to the children. They wouldn't be here otherwise.

This is an old story going back to artificial insemination in the 60s. The scandal at UCI was about frozen embryos that the donors did to want to pay for . The fertility docs, who were not American, decided to give frozen embryos to parents whose GIFT treatments had failed. A disgruntled lab tech ratted them out. A friend of mine, an OBGYN professor who had nothing to do with it, was accused and bankrupted. It was hysteria. It is now standard practice with permission by all parties.

Speaking of Satire.

If you have 20 minutes Go read "Thank you for firing My Ex-husband Kevin Williamson. A Letter to the editor of The Atlantic, Jeffrey Goldberg" by Penelope Gristelfink

Its insane. 1/3 through, I though this has to be satire! Its nuts. And then there's the Authors name. I mean who's called "Penelope Gristlefink?" LOL - I had to google to verify. No, its a real person. And the letter is real. I guess. If true, it means Kevin Willamson "Conservative" is more bizarre then we thought.

stevew said...

I will vote for Trump in November 2020. It won't matter, in that it won't help get him elected, because I live in MA, but he is who I support. I'm planning to tell everyone, especially all my super left family and friends. If and when they ask, with incredulity, why (WHY?!?!!) I shall answer simply: because I think he is the best choice.

Learned recently that I am a racist. I'm male, and white, and over the age of 40 (by quite a bit, actually) so even if I don't treat people differently because of their race or ethnicity, these features mean I am, at best, subconsciously biased and racist. Meh, ok, good to get that out of the way.

Here in MA we have a lot of Nowheresvilles though I'm not going to name them, that would be mean. NH has some too (see: Dixville Notch) and ME, sheesh, have you been to the county lately?

Who is the smart money on, the Twins or the Indians?

If we really wanted Greenland we could make a secret deal with some Africans, say 50,000, get them in boats and have them sail for Greenland intent on "Amnesty". They could say they are escaping poverty and 100 degree heat and want to chill out and have a coffee and a warm Danish. The Danes would let them land. Otherwise they're "Racist".

Of course, then they would demand to part of the USA. We get Greenland on the cheap. Blockbusting.

When Ghislaine Maxwell was spotted at the In and Out in LA she was reading "The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives"

She does a lot of Amazon reviews and left this one on August 15 about this book:

G. Maxwell

5.0 out of 5 starsA comforting read after a personal tragedy

August 15, 2019

Format: Kindle Edition

A good friend of mine died recently under very tragic circumstances. Some of us saw it coming for quite a while but it was still a huge shock when it finally happened. I picked up this book at the advice of a friend and absolutely couldn't put it down. I'd read it walking the dog, getting fast food, or even just lounging around the house. It helped me realized that my friend really believed in something, and that giving your life for the CIA, NSA, FBI, Mossad, or other intelligence agency is truly a higher calling and not something to mourn. A wholehearted recommendation.


https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R2I84ALLN2YK56/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B000XUBFEC

It does seem to be the real Ghislaine Maxwell. The photo at In and Out was not some random stranger either but her lawyer who is admitted in both the US and Britain.

I added the emphasis above. The book is about people who in died in service to the CIA. Her review makes it sound like her "close friend" who died "died recently" (5 days before) worked not only for CIA but also MOSSAD, NSA, FBI and intelligence agencies.

John C Dvorak, not normally given to conspiracy theories thinks that there is a hidden message in the photo being taken at an In and Out rather than a Burger King or Chik-Fil-A or some such. He thinks she is telling someone that she is "out" in the cold and wants to come "in". Saying "Help!!! Come get me!!!".

I have an original CIA poster, 8X10, that has a sort of pathetic looking silohuette in a fetal position on it and says, in big block letters:

Want to be noticed?
Like to meet people?

(Tagline in smaller type) LEAVE YOUR SAFE OPEN TONIGHT

Authentic CIA art, came directly from the original Langly building in the mid-60s.

I believe it has a CIA form number on it but it is covered by a matt and I can't read it.

Poll suggestion:
“Will Assange's suicide be as surprising as Epstein's?”

Bay Area Guy said...

"It won't matter, in that it won't help get him elected, because I live in MA"

I think that's a logical fallacy. Of course, 1 vote in and of itself won't change an outcome. So, therefore your 1 vote in Mass won't matter. So, therefore nobody's 1 vote in Mass matters. Therefore, nobody's 1 vote matters in any state matters.

In 1980, a lotta liberals were nervous about Jimmy Carter, so they voted for John Anderson. Thank you very much! Each of those voters helped Reagan win a landslide.

My approach is think of the enemies of Liberty want (vote Hillary or stay home), and then do the opposite. (Vote Trump, not stay home).

So, if you live in Mass think about what Lizzie Warren wants you to do, and do opposite.

Latest Trump Outrage at Politico: Trump says he wanted to give himself Medal of Honor

President Donald Trump claimed to laughter on Wednesday that he sought to give himself a Medal of Honor, but decided not to after being counseled against the move by aides.

The offhand remark from the president came during his address to the 75th annual national convention of American Veterans, a volunteer-led veterans service organization also known as AMVETS.



"That was a big day, Medal of Honor. Nothing like the Medal of Honor,” [Trump] continued. “I wanted one, but they told me I don't qualify, Woody. I said, 'Can I give it to myself anyway?' They said, 'I don't think that's a good idea.'”



The president’s assessment that he should receive the nation’s highest award for acts of military valor followed his statement earlier Wednesday afternoon that he is “the chosen one” in relation to his administration’s trade conflict with China — a proclamation he turned to the sky to deliver.

Trump never served in the military and was granted five draft deferments — four for college and one for bone spurs in his heel.


Well, then! I guess that writer told him, huh?

Finally got around to seeing Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Good movie, didn’t feel ripped off, lectured on my politics, or anybody else’s for matter, and as always with Quentin Tarantino, you often don’t know whether to look at the girl, or look at the car. He must have had every vintage car in Southern California working as “extras” for the freeway scenes.

Some donor conceived adults care very much about this, others couldn't care less. Questions which may help you to understand an experience you have not had: Do you like knowing who your father is? Did you care whether the baby you took home from the hospital was the one you gave birth to or would any one do?

A shout out to the suicidees, past and future:

To all those whistleblowers, sexual abuse victims, and anyone who had dirt on the Clinton/Deep State machine-- we salute you.

Though many of you had every reason to live, or be kept alive, you somehow managed to 'do the deed'. Despite under duress, you came thru in the clutch.
Suicide isnt easy. Suicide isnt something you can do often or practice. Yet, when the challenge arose, you came thru like true professionals-- exhibiting skill that only comes from years of experience.
No missed shots to the back of the head, no ropes breaking, and uncanny, prescient choices in lethal air travel. Many of you went out of your way to "make it look like an accident" so as to minimize the unwarranted suspicion of foul-play.
We commend you also for your humility-- never being too proud to accept assistance when the task at hand proved prohibitively daunting or desired.
Finally, we would be remiss not to mention your excellent sense of timing. Unbeknownst to you, each had the wisdom and foresight to pinpoint the crucial timeframe of your demise.
Your example has inspired many to embrace one of Life's simple truths:
"Silence Is Golden"

I think that liberals secretly like having their chains yanked. I can’t think of any other explanation. Some kind of humilation fetish like in Whose Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Naaah. That’s Never Trump Republicans mostly. Notice how the Burton character likes to be cuckolded? I just don’t get what liberals get out of their obsession with Trump. What is the reward that keeps them in this tight obsessive loop?

AAT said...

I think their reward is a bigotry based feeling of superiority to a huge number of people who exist mostly in their imagination, but that’s real enough to give them their endorphin rush!

Grand Beagle Fen said...

So...Legal Beagles...

I'm trying to find a case to cite where it was decided you don't have to petition the government to get your rights back, it's the other way around.

I'm not communicating the concept very well, but an example would be Red Light Cameras not allowing due process or the right to confront your accuser. Say you are braking your car on slushy ice at a red light. Car starts to slide. You realize you will likely skid into a telephone pole so you let off the breaks allowing your car to slowly roll through the red light. No other vehicles are at the intersection.

Red Light Camera tickets you. But an actual cop at the scene would have the judgement to realize you only ran through the light to avoid an accident.

Now, a judge might claim you could still come down to the courthouse and ask for leniency, but you are still having to take the day off from work, losing money, to fight the ticket and hope the court is merciful

(Aside - Most people decide to avoid the hassle and pay the fine. What they are actually doing is paying the Rule of Law to go away, like one would do with a whore. That's not the way it's supposed to work)

Anyway, I'n trying to think of a case to cite where it's ruled that the burden is not on me to assert my rights AFTER they have been violated.

AAT said...

Look what’s buried in the DrudgeReport big red link on the cut in job growth numbers:

“This makes some sense, as the 223,000 average monthly increase in 2018 seemed too good to be true in light of how tight the labor market has become and how much trouble firms are said to be having finding qualified workers,”

I don’t see the problem, but I get the feeling that Drudge is negative on Trump, or he finds that the anti-Trump headlines drives up his traffic, I don’t know. In any rate, though the story does it’s best to bash Trump and wishcast a recession, the above line sort of immolates that tack.

Interesting over the last several days. Dan Bongino publicized a definition of Antifa as “anti first amendment”, which makes a lot of sense - much more sense than “anti fascist” because they are, of course, fascist thugs. Kelly Ann Conway picked it up and used it from the White House maybe Monday, and the Dems melted down. They all, in lockstep explained that Antifa couldn’t mean anti First Amendment because reasons. Which he suggested was akin to asking a guy if he is still beating his wife. Because discussing why Antifa doesn’t mean anti First Amendment, esp when that seems to be one of their prime purposes, gets people talking about their anti First Amendment actions in trying to eliminate speech that they don’t like. They all overreacted, and if Conway knows, then so does Trump, Rush, Hannity, etc. so expect that this narrative will continue to make headway. Should be interesting.
