  26. Herodotus

    I don’t mind that Sky has some lefties, or that The Australian does too. But can’t they be a bit more selective than having a dud like Nicholas Reece? He’s just been on tonight with Sharri Markson and Chris Kenny, and was appalling. He looked pretty worried by the end of the show when Kenny pinged him about Peanut Head’s female accuser being given no credence. Lots of blinking.
    He’s so far down the totem pole compared to Kelly or Richo that it’s a joke.

    Is fibromyalgia the scientific term for fat bitch who should shut up?

  28. cohenite

    Costa always thought gerbiling was bullshit. That’s nothing new.

    The point, head prefect, is he enunciates the utter crap of alarmism as good as anyone, even me, and is well informed. Tonight he even mentioned hindcasting which tripped up Bolt who is a bit of a dilettante on the subject. So, as I say Costa and Latham should get back into parliament so some sense on the subject can be reintroduced into politics. With Roberts no longer there no one, not one pollie, can talk about the subject without looking like either a flat-earther or a green imbecile.

  29. Death Giraffe

    Maori are awesome warriors.
    Bayonet charge against machine guns in Crete:

    Although the German invaders had suffered heavy losses, their complete dominance in the air left the Allied defenders facing impossible odds. By 27 May 1941 New Zealand’s depleted 5th Brigade had fallen back to a sunken dirt road named 42nd Street, near Suda Bay. As the enemy advanced, the Māori Battalion led their comrades in a ferocious bayonet charge, severely mauling a battalion of crack German mountain troops. The Māori alone claimed to have killed more than 80 Germans for the loss of only four of their own number. (See also the Battalion battle diary for May 1941.)

    Tunisia:

    Medenine and Tebaga Gap
    Ngarimu
    2nd Lieutenant Ngārimu, VC
    On 1 March 1943 the Māori Battalion helped beat off a determined German counter-attack at Medenine in Tunisia. The New Zealanders’ next task was a sweeping ‘left hook’ inland to seize Tebaga Gap and outflank the enemy’s Mareth Line. The Battalion’s objectives were Point 209 and a foothill the Māori named Hikurangi. Led by Captain Arapeta (Peter) Awatere, C Company seized the latter on 26 March and held it throughout a night of desperate counter-attacks from Panzer Grenadiers. Point 209 fell the next day, with 231 German prisoners taken. The Māori Battalion had suffered almost 100 casualties, including 22 dead. Among the fallen was 2nd Lieutenant Te Moananui-a-Kiwa Ngārimu, whose inspired leadership would earn him a posthumous Victoria Cross.

    The Child Bride watches ABC TV and and the regional one every day. Nearly every time I walk past, it is some BLM/Australia show telling her how horrible the white man is and how both Aboriginal and Maori peoples lived in an idyllic, peaceful life before we arrived. The change in her personality over the last five years is astounding.
    She believes everything she sees and seems to have lost all critical reasoning ability.
    It’s not looking good.

    Winston, I understand completely what you mean, except in my case it’s the male half of the spousal arrangement, and he listens to nothing but the ABC radio – RN, Classic FM and ABC News radio. He’s gone from a smart, sceptical, thinking, analytical, educated man to almost full-on Trump Derangement Syndrome (it’s worse when his brother is around, he’s even worse), despite cheering when Hillarity lost. He also thought Malcolm turdball would be a great PM, but at least he did see through that one fairly quickly. He does read the Australian, which is still reasonably balanced. And he still knows that CAGW is a total scam, and maintains his anger about that. Frankly, if he ever starts to sound like he’s believing that bullshit, there’ll be a divorce.

    Death row blasphemer Aasia Bibi’s final appeal

    AP

    1 Comment

    Pakistan’s Supreme Court is set to hear the final appeal of a Christian woman on death row since 2010 accused of insulting Islam’s prophet, a crime that incites mobs to kill and carries an automatic death penalty.

    Her lawyer Saiful Malook is optimistic Aasia Bibi will win her last legal appeal. But if not, he will seek a review, which could take years to complete. “I am a 100 per cent sure she will be acquitted,” Malook said on the eve of the hearing. “She has a very good case.”

    In 2009, Bibi went to get water for her and her fellow farmworkers. After she took a sip, some of the Muslim women became angry that a Christian had drunk from the same container. They demanded she convert, she refused. Five days later, a mob accused her of blasphemy. She was convicted and sentenced to death. Malook said he will argue that the many contradictions of the eyewitnesses taint their evidence. Malook said he will also argue that the witnesses were not judged in keeping with Islamic injunctions, which requires they be proven to be “pious, to never have lied, to be of good character”.

    The US gave hundreds of tanks and Humvees to the Iraqi Army when they “withdrew” under Obama. They ended up in the hands of ISIS and were used to take over huge swathes of Syria and Iraq. There was something incredibly “fishy” about the whole thing.

    You would think that the “worlds greatest military” would have satellite tracking of every one of their own vehicles, and know exactly where they were. A “kill switch” maybe? It beggars belief that all the drivers left the keys in their multimillion dollar vehicles and some illiterate jihadis jumped inside and just drove off in them. The yanks had no clue where to find them, and no means with which to destroy them? Give me a break. FMD. It’s ludicrous.

    No wonder Trump defeated ISIS in a couple of short months.

  40. Death Giraffe

    Stupid German convoy make the mistake of attacking Maori infantry with tanks, only to make them mad:
    ..

    “At seven o’clock the tail comprising tanks and artillery hit us dead centre and the fun started again. The tanks go right into our position and played around but we kept them off the pits with tank bombs, grenades and everything we had until one light tank got onto a trench and killed two of the boys L/Cpl K. Tanara from Omaio and Pte W. Heretaunga from Whaka. When the boys went mad and went after it, the occupants caved in and were promptly killed. Things got a bit hot for the enemy with our anti tank rifles etc., so they withdrew and went the way the others went… In the Italy up we found the above two and Geo. Hall [of] Ohinemutu killed and four wounded, while three were missing, presumably collected by one of the tanks.”
    During the night B Company captured seven prisoners who had been left behind and were firing flares to show their positions. In addition to several dead Germans, daylight revealed 1 tank, 1 armoured car, 1 Bren gun carrier, 1 ambulance car, 4 staff cars, 1 truck, 3 light cars and 5 motor cycles on the Māori front. The lads from the Bay of Plenty managed to get all but two of the vehicles going.

    Regarding computer climate models it’s good to remember this story from Freeman Dyson (a climate change sceptic, by the way) , though computer climate models weren’t what he was talking about. The principle still applies:

    “In desperation I asked Fermi whether he was not impressed by the agreement between our calculated numbers and his measured numbers. He replied, ‘How many arbitrary parameters did you use for your calculations?’ I thought for a moment about our cut-off procedures and said, ‘Four.’ He said, ‘I remember my friend Johnny von Neumann used to say, with four parameters I can fit an elephant, and with five I can make him wiggle his trunk.’ With that, the conversation was over. I thanked Fermi for his time and trouble, and sadly took the next bus back to Ithaca to tell the bad news to the students.”

  61. cohenite

    Back testing is bullshit. It’s similar to back-testing models in trading, What could’ve worked back in time, means shit going forward.

    Correct but you miss the point head prefect. If the climate models can’t even predict the weather we know we’ve had in the past they certainly can’t predict the weather we’re going to have in the future. This is a crucial point and explains why the alarmists are furiously changing the past climate records, particularly temperature. Concurrent with this revision of past climate Hindcasting is one of the essential proofs of alarmism used by the alarmists. Fortunately an expert on Hurst and stochastic effects, Koutsoyiannis, has done a number of papers on the defects of alarmist hindcasting. I’ll link to the easy one with big pictures for you.

    And if you read all my posts on the subject one day you may really know as much as me.

If the power rests with the senate, which looks like it will be for the foreseeable future, it doesn’t really matter which party is in control of the lower house, because they will be mostly unable to do shit.

  70. Old School Conservative

    Andrew Bolt took on climate change alarmism head on this evening – and then rolled over for Kitching. A soft interview with little in the way of tough questions.
    For example – KK tilts head and opines on the value of “rule of law”. Bolt ignores the ACTU’s stand on “it’s OK to break unjust law.”
    He has his strengths and I applaud much of what he says and does. His instantaneous reaction to the thugs who bashed him is a good example of his positive mental mindset. I wish he was like that 100% of the time.

  80. Hey Cats, we all know property is on the nose at the moment and there is a correction under way.
    But tonight when I checked my Australian Super account this message was front and centre on the first page:
    ‘If you are invested in the Property option.
    We’re making some important changes to the Property option. If you are currently invested in the Property option, you’ll need to provide your consent to the changes and re-select your investment options via the ‘Stay in Property’ button below before 4pm (AEDT) Friday 9 November 2018.

    If you don’t want to stay in the Property option you can:
    1. Make a new investment choice by going to ‘Manage my account’ – ‘Super investments’ – ‘Change my investments’ and completing the form, or
    2. Do nothing and we’ll automatically switch your property investments into the Balanced option.’

    A bit scary. They are moving you out of property unless you explicitly provide consent to stay.
    What’s happening with their property portfolio?
    Any Cats got any info?

    Did she mention how she sexually assaulted her sister? Technically, Dunham’s sister is a sexual assault survivor.

    I hate the term “survivor”, it implies some sort of life and death situation. In most cases being pressured into sex is not even close to a life and death situation. THe left have over-dramatised the damage involved, which in many cases is zero. Same with sexual “assault”, the implication is that it’s just as bad as a real physical assault, ie getting bashed. But clearly having your bum pinched is not a damaging event, nor should it be treated like one. The left like to create an ever expanding class of victims. How long before microaggressions are seen as criminal.THis must be stopped.

  86. C.L.

    Stewart was placed on trial in Sydney as an accomplice to murder, but because the Ngāi Tahu witnesses were considered heathens, they were not allowed to take the oath and were therefore ‘incompetent’ to act as witnesses.

    Tell me Achmed…

    Kicking and screaming, the GOP has essentially cast away most of RINO’s. Not all, but a very large number. This occurred without the need to destroy the party. The mechanics of the party structure allowed for this change with the beginnings of the Tea party movement, soc change can most certainly occur. And before you start bullshitting that Trump changed things, let me say that you don’t even go there. It was the Tea party movement that brought out the change. Trump is there because of the tea party.

    As for changes here… We’ve seen it in the Liars Party and the way they now elect their party leader.

    If there was going to be a right movement we would have seen it by now with more support of the AC. It’s basically moribund.

    In any event, why are you even discussing this as you’re not a conservative with the exception of a few social issues. You’re basically an old style Laborite and the quicker you see that the better it will be for you.

You’re the one arguing that a Liars party trouncing would be great because it would cause a new conservative group to form.

    Taken from a parliamentary debate in 1912, Viscount Helmsley nailed it.

    The way in which certain types of women, easily recognised, have acted in the last year or two, especially in the last few weeks, lends a great deal of colour to the argument that the mental equilibrium of the female sex is not as stable as the mental equilibrium of the male sex….It seems to me that this House should remember that if the vote is given to women those who will take the greatest part in politics will not be the quiet, retiring, constitutional women… but those very militant women who have brought so much disgrace and discredit upon their sex. It would introduce a disastrous element into our public life…it is little short of nauseating and disgusting to the whole sex…

    Far out.

    NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. — Anthony Mancinelli shook out a barber towel and welcomed the next customer to his chair in Fantastic Cuts, a cheery hair salon in a nondescript strip mall, about an hour’s drive north of New York City.

    “Hey, paisan — same as usual,” said John O’Rourke to Mancinelli, who began layering O’Rourke’s hair with his steady, snipping scissors.

    “I don’t let anyone else touch my hair,” said O’Rourke, 56, of Cornwall, New York. “The guy’s been cutting hair for a century.”

    Actually, O’Rourke was off by three years. Mancinelli is 107 and still working full time, cutting hair five days a week from noon to 8 p.m. He has been working in barbershops since he was 11. Warren Harding was in the White House.

    In 2007, at a mere 96 years old, he was recognized by Guinness World Records as the oldest working barber. Since then, the commendations have rolled in — from local civic groups, elected officials and barbering companies — all congratulating him: 100 years, 101, 102 and so on.

    Mancinelli just keeps outdating the awards.

    The salon’s speakers were playing hip-hop on a recent afternoon. “He’s used to the windup record players,” O’Rourke teased.

    Mancinelli has a trim build, a steady hand and a full head of hair, albeit snow white. He spends much of his day on his feet, in a pair of worn, cracked black leather shoes.

    “People come in and they flip out when they find out how old he is,” said the shop’s owner, Jane Dinezza.

    “He never calls in sick,” she said. “I have young people with knee and back problems, but he just keeps going. He can do more haircuts than a 20-year-old kid. They’re sitting there looking at their phones, texting or whatever, and he’s working.”

    Asked — for the umpteenth time — about his longevity, Mancinelli offered only that he has always put in a satisfying day’s work and he has never smoked or drank heavily.

    But no, longevity does not run in his family, and he was never big on exercise. Dietwise, he said, “I eat thin spaghetti, so I don’t get fat.”

    He has all his teeth and is on no daily medication. He has never needed glasses, and his hairstyling hands are still steady.

    “I only go to the doctor because people tell me to, but even he can’t understand it,” he said. “I tell him I have no aches, no pains, no nothing. Nothing hurts me.”

    One reason he continues to work, he said, is that it helps him stay busy and upbeat after the death of his wife of 70 years, Carmella, 14 years ago. He visits her grave daily before work.

    Mancinelli lives alone, not far from the salon in New Windsor. He drives to work, cooks his own meals, watches television — he is a big pro-wrestling fan — and is adamantly self-sufficient. He still trims the bushes in his front yard with no help.

    “He won’t even let anyone sweep up his hair clippings,” said his son, Bob Mancinelli, 81, who noted that his father even gives haircuts to himself.

    As Dinezza observed, “he shops for himself, does his own laundry, pays his own bills — it’s crazy. He’s just in the right state of mind.”

    Trust me on this, Struth. The Chinese have no interest in “governing” Australia – or nearly anywhere else, for that matter. By the late 1990’s/early 2000’s, they had learned, like the Americans before them, that domination through trade is far easier, cheaper, and less messy, than domination by force.

    Whereas George Soros has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition against the United States and its citizens, has created and funded dozens (and probably hundreds) of discrete organizations whose sole purpose is to apply Alinsky model terrorist tactics to facilitate the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United State, and has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government, the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic terrorists, and have all of his personal an organizational wealth and assets seized under Civil Asset Forfeiture law.

    Re your comments above, you will appreciate this article – worth a read.

    How Trump Win changed US Politics forever

    The Trump election scared the ruling Elite and for the first time in this 70 year period where a group of 6,000 people controls the planet, they decided to pull out all the stops. They will do anything and everything to destroy Trump NOT because they really care about him personally, but because of what he represents. “Drain the Swamp” means about 40% of the political class will be in prison for life. It’s easier said than done. But going back to the political class in USA, we need to single out a single force unfortunately, George Soros; to act as a public example of how this shadow government and shadow banking system operate.

    For the first time ever – they used these tools DOMESTICALLY. The CIA really doesn’t operate on US soil – until Trump. The deep-state activated all of their sleeper cells, tools such as the brainwashed Dr. Ford, they had perhaps been planning to use on other targets (Syria, Putin). Speaking of Putin, Trump and Putin have quite a bit in common politically, which is the topic of another good article.

    The CIA has fixed hundreds of elections in the world – BUT NEVER CONSIDERED operating in the United States – until Trump.

    Let it be known that the CIA works hand in hand with various international business interests – one of which is George Soros, but he is just one man there are perhaps hundreds, or thousands of other examples. However, Soros has amassed a huge fortune from this activity, and note that his public net worth is probably a fraction of his global holdings.

    So let’s understand what Soros does and how he is different from Wall St. ‘traders’ – Soros is a very savvy, perhaps one of his kind, international businessman and investment banker. He profits by manipulating politics. He’s not a ‘trader’ – supposedly he profited by ‘breaking the bank of England’ but that was only possible with inside information from the very guy who was making rate decisions. His Billion Dollar bet by the way, even during that time, would have been a drop in the bucket in FX. One would need TRILLIONS of dollars, NOT BILLIONS to really manipulate the FX markets because they are so big and central banks have access to unlimited capital. So this nonsense about his trading acumen is absurd. His friend at the Bank of England was providing information to him he knew what they were going to do before they did it. How much did he pay his friend for that information? The world will never know. But here’s the point – he pays for such information and gets it by manipulating politicians.

    Meet Justice Kavanaugh’s Four Female SCOTUS Law Clerks

    “I’ll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all women law clerks. That is who I am. That is who I was,” Brett Kavanaugh said on Sept. 27, testifying after the emergence of sexual misconduct allegations.

    A day after the bitter fight over his nomination ended in his elevation to the Supreme Court, Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh was in his new chambers on Sunday, preparing for the arguments the court is to hear as it enters the second week of its term. …

    Justice Kavanaugh met with his four law clerks, all women — a first for the Supreme Court — in chambers that had until recently been occupied by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who has moved to Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s old chambers. …

    Justice Kavanaugh said in his testimony last month that he had started to take action to address the underrepresentation of women among law clerks after reading a 2006 article in The New York Times noting that only seven of 37 Supreme Court clerks were women.

    “A majority of my 48 law clerks over the last 12 years have been women,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee. “In my time on the bench, no federal judge — not a single one in the country — has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have.”

    Long Island’s elite are planning against MS-13 invasions

    I’m old enough to remember when Democrats lectured us about how concerns over illegal immigrants coming into the country and joining up with MS-13 was mostly hype, an unfair characterization of immigrants, a “political tool” of Donald Trump (NY Times), mostly a myth (WaPo) and any number of other denigrating statements. Of course, if you’ve been awake for just the past year you’re probably old enough to remember that also. But not even everyone in the liberal community buys these claims.

    Some of biggest strongholds of Democratic donors (with deep pockets) in the northeastern reaches of the country have chosen to take the issue seriously. And they’re putting their money where their mouths are… lots of it. As the New York Post reports this week, out on Long Island, some of the wealthier residents are upgrading their homes at tremendous expense, but it’s not for a new art collection or a second yacht. They’re putting in panic rooms, bulletproof glass, arsenals of weapons and top line security systems. And they’re doing it to hide from MS-13 raids.

    Hamptons millionaires build luxe panic rooms to hide from MS-13

    here is a specter haunting the Hamptons — one that’s turning some of the priciest properties in the country into fortresses equipped with bulletproof glass, weaponry and panic rooms.

    “I sleep with a gun underneath my pillow: a Walther PPK/S, the same one James Bond carried,” said John Catsimatidis, owner of Red Apple Group and Gristedes Foods, who has a vacation property in East Quogue. “[My wife] Margo prefers a shotgun. Although, once, she thought she heard something, got the shotgun out and shot through the door.”

    The billionaire and his family, like others in the Hamptons, are shaken up over concerns that the vicious Salvadorian gang MS-13 is too close for comfort. In April, members of the gang massacred four young men behind a soccer field in Central Islip. Three months later, a Hampton Bays brothel raided by police was found to be tagged with an MS-13 sign. And in 2016, a man with MS-13 connections broke into a Southampton home and sexually assaulted a woman.

    Last year, Southampton Town Police Chief Steven Skrynecki publicly expressed concern that the gang might spread further east. When he deployed police equipped with antiterrorism gear, including automatic weapons, along the perimeters of summer 2017 charity galas, locals took note.

    Calli, I note thàt the ticket to Yardenit carefully speaks of ‘spirit’ but doesn’t mention John the Baptist. They know the Jordan is the only thing they are selling.

    Did you also try out the Dead Sea. We went there after a hot day at Masada and I was looking forward to a dip. It was awful. Firstly so many people at this one so-called beach, simply a muddy progression down steps that once were jetties. For the Dead Sea is visibly dying.

    Once an evaporated sea which had reached a steady state with incoming waters of the Jordan River, so that the below-sea levels were maintained, it is now evaporating at the rate of a metre a year. The jetties are responses to this and become a series of descending steps. This evaporation has also caused many sinkholes, closing some other beaches, adding tourist pressures to those remaining. Apparently siphoning off the Jordan for human usege, including irrigation, is disrupting the long held equilibrium and the sea needs more fresh water than it now gets. Once part of the Mediterraneàn, it will turn into a Lake Eyre, a saltpan.

    Bringing in more salt water from the Med is one mooted Israeli solution; scotched by Greens, suggests Hairy.

    I changed in the women’s changerooms, which were busy, then tripped to the shoreline with Hairy and in we went: it was slimey, slippery, muddy and very, very uneven. Hairy flipped onto his back and paddled out but I was immediately in difficulties, floundering, with the current trying to turn me over into the forbidden position on your tummy. You couldn’t swim at all nor properly float without turning over. Thus when Hairy unfairly accused me of acting like a beached whale I took great umbrage and slithered out to the open beach showers to wash off the mud, being eyed by Muslim men whose wives were actually trying to do the immersion wearing burkas. I got the worst of the mud off and retreated to the women’s changerooms. It was bedlam in there.

    The long low ceilinged room reminded me of a gas chamber. Half naked or fully naked women and a few children were so packed in it was difficult to move and the yabbering noise in mant tongues merely sounded disturbingly panicked. I thought I’d go straight for the loo to wash my hands and face and get out fast, but a large Muslim woman was guarding the entrance to the toilets, fiercely insisting that each and every woman join the long line to the showers first. You could see naked women shrieking at each other in the open row of showers, as though something was wrong. My imagery and claustrophobia got the better of me. I found a corner where I quickly threw on some clothes, so thankful for my thongs keeping my feet out of the swampy wet floor, and allowed discretion to be the better part of valour. I went back to the bus a true swamp creature and was amazed at how much mud still remained on me and my cossies when I showed back at the hotel.

    How did you go? aked an American woman I had got friendly with on the bus as we clambered back in. I thought it was horrible, disgusting, I told her. She immediately turned to her husband saying triumphantly, see, I’m not the only one who hated it. Swampy buddies, we became for the journey home. Hairy also apologised for not being more patient with me. He had ten blissful minutes not sinking until his various small knocks and cuts had started to sting. They warn you about that.

    George Soros’s March on Washington

    Saturday’s protests and unlawful disruptions were brought to us by a well-funded network.

    Some 200 protesters march across the lawn of the U.S. Capitol to the foot of the south wing. Inside, the U.S. Senate is wrapping up its debate, hours before the Saturday afternoon vote to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Members of the crowd rush up the steps, unfurl professionally printed banners, stand defiantly, and pump their fists in the air.

    “Whose house?” they shout.

    “Our house!” they answer.

    By the time of the vote, they’ve moved across the street to the Supreme Court building. After getting word of the vote, again they rush the steps. Two women climb the statues flanking the steps—“Contemplation of Justice” and “Authority of Law”—for more fist-pumps.

    On the steps, Bob Bland, a co-founder of the Women’s March, silently sends a thumbs-up signal to another leader, later boasting: “We took the Supreme Court.” On Friday the Women’s March had tweeted out a photo of Sen. Susan Collins, who cast the deciding vote for Justice Kavanaugh, with “Rape Apologist” written across her image.

    In a series of tweets and rally comments, President Trump described the crowd as “an angry left-wing mob” of “professional protesters who are handed expensive signs” and “paid for by [George] Soros and others.” Mr. Trump’s detractors accused him of engaging in conspiracy theories, and even of anti-Semitism against Mr. Soros, a billionaire donor to liberal causes. Yet he has a point. Many Americans genuinely oppose Mr. Trump and Justice Kavanaugh. I am a liberal feminist whose views on abortion and same-sex marriage align with the Democratic Party’s. Yet while most demonstrators are not paid for their efforts, the protests at the Capitol Saturday, and the ones that have included stalking lawmakers inside and outside their offices, are organized by groups of which Mr. Soros is an important patron.

    I started following the money for the “resistance” when it was born, hours after Election Day 2016. I have organized my findings in a spreadsheet I have made public. At least 50 of the largest organizations that participated as “partners” in the Jan. 21, 2017, Women’s March had received grants from Mr. Soros’s Open Society Foundations or similar funds in the “House of Soros,” as his philanthropic empire was once called internally. The number of Soros-backed partners has grown to at least 80. At least 20 of the largest groups that led the Saturday anti-Kavanaugh protests have been Open Society grantees.

    On Saturday I also studied the fine print on the signs as protesters waved them defiantly at the Capitol and the high court. They came from a familiar list of Democratic interest groups that have received millions from Mr. Soros: the American Civil Liberties Union, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the Center for Popular Democracy, Human Rights Campaign and on and on. MoveOn.org, a Democratic organizing and lobbying group founded with Soros money, sent its army of partisan followers regular missives that led them to a Google form to ask for train tickets and places to stay.

    Under a ginkgo tree on the East Lawn of the Capitol, Center for Popular Democracy field marshals put protesters through a “training” Saturday morning. “Are you ready to be arrested?” she asks. “Yes!” the crowd shouts, although one woman asks quietly: “For what?”

    “If not,” the field marshal orders, “stand in line for the visitor’s gallery so an experienced protester can go inside and yell.” One organizer hands out tickets to the Senate visitors gallery for the express purpose of violating the law. That they did—the proceedings were repeatedly interrupted by shrieks from the gallery.

    The agitators even have help with their handmade signs. Across the street from the Supreme Court, a woman uses supplies provided by UltraViolet Action to write, in Spanish: “No more r#pists in power.”

    Back on the Capitol lawn, people from Megaphone Strategies, a public-relations firm founded by former Obama adviser Van Jones, manage interview requests from USA Today and other news outlets. Women’s March lieutenants exchange T-shirts for completed “Legal Support Sheets” with information in case of arrest.

    Suddenly everyone stands to walk in unison to the Capitol steps. When they arrive, the few Capitol Police officers on the scene silently watch them. The protesters walk up the stairs—though they don’t “storm” them, as the leaders have claimed. There are no barricades, no phalanx of armed police.

    Rethink Media created a “social media strategy sheet” back in August for anti-Kavanaugh protesters. One talking point: “Kavanaugh was hand-picked by dark money groups and their billionaire backers.” Rethink Media is itself a Soros grantee, and Saturday’s protests and unlawful disruptions were part of a well-funded, orchestrated network that books buses, hotel rooms and churches for such agitation.

    MoveOn.org wrote a guide, “How to B#rd Dog”—harass officials in public places—in the spring of 2017, in preparation for town-hall meetings during a congressional recess. Over the past year, I have dialed in to MoveOn.org’s Sunday evening phone calls where they plan the operations and tell their “troublemakers” how to corner lawmakers. I still get alerts for their planning sessions. The last ones have been to #stopKavanaugh.

    MoveOn.org announced that its call the night after Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation would feature Ana Maria Archila, the Colombia-born s#xual-assault victim who cornered Sen. Jeff Flake in a Senate elevator last month while a confederate screamed “Look at me!” She is co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy. Her salary was listed as $156,333, with a bonus of $21,378, in a recent Internal Revenue Service 990 form.

    What I have pieced together is an open secret but one that journalists tend to avoid. Many (including me) sympathize with the liberal causes Open Society champions. Some have been paid Open Society Fellows or grantees. And many are put off by conservative anti-Soros rhetoric, which gets truculent at times.

    Mr. Soros, much like the Koch brothers, funds causes he cares about. There’s nothing wrong with that, but democracy is better served if we follow the money on the right and left and find solutions where they are likeliest to lie: in the middle.

    Trump And Rosenstein To Face Off At 30,000 Feet As Meeting Moved To Air Force One

    President Trump will meet with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein aboard Air Force One on Monday, suggesting that Rosenstein’s employment status is safe for the time being following a tense several weeks of speculation over whether the man running the Russia investigation would resign or be fired. Prior to the flight, Trump told reporters that he has no plans to fire Rosenstein.

    “I actually have a good relationship — other than there’s been no collusion folks, no collusion,” Trump said, adding that he looks forward to being with him.

    “We’re going to be talking. We’ll be talking on the plane.”

    Margot Robbie to replace Amy Schumer in Barbie movie

    That they even considered Amy Schumer is a sign of how messed up Hollywood has become.

    There really does not seem to be any way around the fact that Barnie is supposed to be a glamorous and vivacious creation. Kids would see Schumer, and quite apart from wondering if there was a new version of the doll – you know, Hollywood Barbie, Career Barbie, Hideous Screeching Retarded Barbie.

    They would have seen the quivering stack of offal before, and if not they would very likely see her afterward, being herself.

    That would be enough to break whatever spell they hoped to weave with the movie.

    Robbie vs Schumer.

    Wow! The last thing you need to do if you have average looks is to cut your hair short and dress like a bull dyke. Schumer could be a pretty little thing with a healthy trail of love interests tracking her, but feminazism has made her ultra-ugly. Sad.

    These drugs are dangerous to health.
    The ABC reports both positions without contrast.

    Trump says had ‘good talk’ with Rosenstein; no plans to fire him

    It was not immediately clear whether Trump and Rosenstein talked about the controversy during their 45-minute-long conversation on the flight, where Kelly and another Department of Justice official, Ed O’Callaghan, were also present.

    They talked about support for law enforcement officials, border security, crime in Chicago and “general DOJ business,” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said
