But that title says tells the future. (pray to God and hope to die otherwise) JTC Mar 29 2019 at 12:08 am “says tells”? Ugh. Tells. Bedtime. gafling Mar 29 2019 at 5:45 am … how ’bout “tolls” … Delilah T. Mar 29 2019 at 12:09 am Useful idiots. The landing will be hard. WayneM Mar 29 2019 at 12:40 am From where I’m sitting, it seems like their run might finally be coming to a self-inflicted ending… Long, long overdue… Hopefully (as is often the case) the Canadians will be inspired and start throwing off our self-imposed shackles as well. formwiz Mar 29 2019 at 12:44 am More like 80. James Gemind Mar 29 2019 at 12:46 am The eyes on Pelosi aren’t crazy eyes this time. Impressive work they match the statement she makes of how obvious the guy is… As to hard landings, the ones who voted Nay on the Green New Deal are smarter than that. Hell, even the ones who voted present may be coming to the realization that their days are numbered… Delilah T. Mar 29 2019 at 1:38 pm Ms. AOC has now thrown an official temper tantrum, recorded on video during her speech (rant) over losing the vote on the Green Nude Eel. Dis gonna be good, kadaka Mar 29 2019 at 2:20 pm I will be so grateful when people stop talking about Alexandria and her Green Nude Eel, as that sounds like a movie an unemployed barista could be talked into making, and I don’t have enough brain bleach. Buck n Willcox Mar 29 2019 at 2:41 am Over a hundred – they passed the Federal Reserve Act and established the IRS in 1913. John D. Egbert Mar 29 2019 at 9:43 am Also the direct election of Senators — the first disemboweling of the Constitution. Punta Gorda Mar 29 2019 at 9:44 am After killing the opposition who were on the Titanic. 1500+ additional deaths to further their cause? Perfectly acceptable. Hillary’s big advancement was to be more efficient with less collateral damage. kadaka Mar 29 2019 at 3:48 am Embattled Chicago prosecutor Kimberly Foxx never legally recused herself from Jussie Smollett case The police union threatened an investigation because she was texting w/ Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, a Smollett family friend. So Foxx said she was recusing herself to shut them and the public up. Now her office says that term was used “colloquially”, in the sense she was stepping back and letting her first assistant Joe Magats handle the mess and make the call. She was never formally recused at all. Imagine the fun if judges and elected officials didn’t “formally” recuse themselves, they only “colloquially” said so. Or if Jeff Sessions hadn’t “formally” recused himself and was quietly directing Mueller. MJ Larkins Mar 29 2019 at 1:03 pm Only in Shitcago… Bill G Mar 29 2019 at 5:05 am This is where they are, and Her Hillaryness was supposed to finalize it. And people wonder why they are so crazed at Trump beginning to dismantle their carefully built plans. eon Mar 29 2019 at 5:50 am It was once said that the old Soviet Union would be at its most dangerous when its leaders believed that they could get away with anything. Not long after that, they invaded Afghanistan, and set in motion the chain of events that led to the destruction of the USSR. The progressives over here believe that there is nothing to stop them. And if they are wrong, and they destroy the United States, to them, that counts as a win as well. As France learned the hard way a century and a bit ago with their bomb-throwing, bank-robbing anarchists, it is very difficult to deal rationally with nihilists whose philosophy is “Obey us or die”, with a side order of “And even if you do obey us, we may kill you anyway, ‘just because’.” clear ether eon kadaka Mar 29 2019 at 7:34 am Macron has just sent in the army against French citizens to quell the yellow vest riots, projecting a strong “Obey us or die” message. He will have Order! Looks like the French political class learned everything they needed to only 80 or so years ago. Delilah T. Mar 29 2019 at 7:52 am The Committee got fed up with Robespierre and his blind hatred and sent him to meet with Madame La Guillotine. There ended the destruction. Nikita Krushchev began the slip-slide toward the end of the USSR after Stalin’s brain fart killed him. Gorbachev’s “glasnost” and expenditures in Afghanistan finished the job. The Vietnamese invaded Cambodia and put an end to Pol Pot’s grip of horror on that country. Idi Amin spent eight years brutalizing Uganda and was finally ousted in 1979, so he ran away to Saudi Arabia. The difference between then and now is the 24/7/365 stream of events. We have that to our advantage. The “They” forget that. A while back “The X Files” did an episode on AI bugs from ‘outer space” spying on us. It was silly, but it can happen to The Them. That old “fly on the wall” might simply be a tiny microphone transmitting info to someone who is not part of The Them. Have a Nice Day!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 John D. Egbert Mar 29 2019 at 9:54 am And non too soon, either. The Soviets were very close to convincing themselves that could win a nuclear war when Afghanistan blew up in their faces — otherwise they probably would have and tried . . . John D. Egbert Mar 29 2019 at 9:54 am Damn, not enough coffee . . . “none” . . . Jim Smith Mar 29 2019 at 6:22 am Excellent insight by Chris. One quibble: It’s worse now than it’s ever been. They—the parasite political power elite and their clients—have never had the extent of power they have today. In order to be where they are now the Constitution has to have been ignored, weakened and ultimately destroyed (they’re well on their way). Tagg Mar 29 2019 at 6:51 am When we look at the big, and long term, picture, Trump is a blip on the radar. We have to maintain the “Take America back” movement, or it, and we, are done. Cliff Mar 29 2019 at 7:07 am The swamp is a very big organization. Vast and treacherous like the alligator/python infested Everglades. WayneM Mar 29 2019 at 8:09 am To quote C.S. Lewis…. “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” Kafiroon Mar 29 2019 at 10:49 am A good shotgun works on those in the Everglades. Delilah T. Mar 29 2019 at 1:41 pm Are they getting enough to eat down there in the swamp? Could they use a few more sandwiches? Kafiroon Mar 29 2019 at 8:14 pm They eat each other! JTC Mar 29 2019 at 11:47 am Please keep the accurate “vast and treacherous” descriptor for that fetid DC swamp separate from my ‘glades where I spent many hunting seasons traipsing through on airboats and buggies enjoying what God hath wrought just for me to enjoy. The ‘gators belong there although do-gooders with their protections from hunting caused a huge surfeit much as they did with the deer who contract disease and starve due to their interference with nature and resulting overpopulation. The damn snakes are something else altogether and pose a serious risk to that ecosystem; how awesome would it be to relocate all of them to the northern swamp you reference where they might not even be noticed as the blend right in, but best scenario would devour some of those hideous invasive two-legged creatures there that are lower on the food chain than the pythons. Bill G Mar 29 2019 at 11:58 am The pythons would not survive long in the D.C. swamp; they are not venomous and could not begin to compete. JTC Mar 29 2019 at 12:28 pm No, they swallow their prey alive and whole…cool! But failing that, Kafiroon’s method for the FL swamp creatures would work pretty well for the DC ones too. Kafiroon Mar 29 2019 at 1:13 pm I really, really like the constricting and swallowing alive part that we do get to see down here. OK. Live trap and release in DC! Both gators and Pythons. Delilah T. Mar 29 2019 at 1:50 pm The constrictor snakes are not endangered, right? And is it open season on them down there? I know they’ve done a huge lot of damage to the birds in the Everglades, which is why I’m asking. I also know that there is no “endangered” label attached to them, which is why you can find snakeskin shoes, purses and belts everywhere. NotYetInACamp Mar 29 2019 at 2:18 pm The invader snakes should be killed whenever encountered. I do not know the exact legalities. I just know that legislators refused to ban them when I asked them as a kid and later as I gained more apparent political power. That was because they were stone stupid, or the pet importers had a lobby that legislators adore as they donate. I did get other laws passed and changes in regulations made in various places over time based on merit. I never was paid anything for those efforts. JTC Mar 29 2019 at 3:43 pm Don’t know the details but pretty sure there’s a significant bounty on the damn things. I for one will not be collecting any though. :I JTC Mar 29 2019 at 3:46 pm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do2n-id4eP4 JTC Mar 29 2019 at 3:53 pm Before somebody bitches at me about the NBC youtube link (looking at you k-man 🙂 ), here’s some better info. https://www.sfwmd.gov/our-work/python-program kadaka Mar 29 2019 at 9:08 am The TV just told me Climate Change could take out the Monarch butterflies within a few decades due to stronger storms etc, so they must be listed now as a federally protected endangered species. Except extreme weather has been in decline for decades and climate scientists say a warmer world will be calmer. For years the media said there’s a worldwide decline in frogs and other amphibians that must be caused by Climate Change, explaining how these vanishing frogs are the “canaries in the coal mine” signaling the apocalypse to come if we don’t immediately combat global warming with Everything Possible. But now we know there’s a super fungus doing the killing that’s been spread worldwide. I read a few years ago it was actually biologists who spread a lot of it, they’d examine all these remote populations with the fungus spores on their equipment, then recheck the populations years later and, poof, they’re gone. Must’ve been Climate Change! Sometimes I think the media likes lying to us and never correcting the mistruths as it serves their agenda. NotYetInACamp Mar 29 2019 at 2:21 pm So there are man made effects on the environment. I wonder if we will be wiped out by intergalactic scientists studying us. Space spores, ya know. billrla Mar 29 2019 at 11:59 am Pelosi is done. Too old. Too white. Poor thing still thinks she’s in charge. I use the word “thinks” loosely. In Pelosi’s case, it’s more of a brain stem function, at this point. kadaka Mar 29 2019 at 12:11 pm But she’s female and represents SanFran, she’ll be good for a few more terms after she comes out as a lesbian married to a transfemale, after she gets her husband to go along with it. Punta Gorda Mar 29 2019 at 3:06 pm With as much botox and embalming fluid as is in her daily routine, you honestly think she can get a date outside of the mortuary business? kadaka Mar 29 2019 at 3:44 pm She’s married right now, to a man, but by current standards for being “trans” they just need a shave and maybe some eye shadow to use whichever bathroom they’re comfortable in for three minutes, give or take. interventor Mar 29 2019 at 9:31 pm Cotton Mather expressed sorrow she was the witch he didn’t catch circa 1677. NotYetInACamp Mar 29 2019 at 2:51 pm I have been swimming in those Democrat waters all of my life. The Democrats ran everything in Florida, I recall. I remember Dade County electing its first republican State House representative. I used his early personal PO Box for our Jaycee Chapter for years. I am probably the only person even slightly around politics that did not get a photo with Democrat US Congressman Senator Claude “Red” Pepper and then put it on my wall or somewhere in my office. I did know good Democrats like Senator and Governor Bob Graham and House Foreign Affairs Chairman Dante Fascell, and I did help a friend get elected as a State Representative who then was voted by his party later to be Speaker of the Florida House (Maybe, he might only have led the opposition by then). Of course as a 17 yr old freshman I did destroy in public debate and argument Bill Ayers, of the murderous terrorist group The Weathermen of SDS, during a time he visited ND to recruit people to join hm and his gang to use violence to change America. He listened to well to my arguments I later found out. The Democrat reign has been over their implementing destruction of the USA and the culture and Western Civilization that developed its strength. Even when Republicans held “power” the majority of government and democrats and RINOs were obstructing what the people wanted and had voted fo4r. The war has barely begun. We must do our own long march removing them from power. Government must pay the conservatives, libertarians, and such to undo what democrats have been financed to destroy over the decades. The long march (Mao’s Long March redone by the new communists) has been across the nation and world through governments, universities, foundations, businesses, schools, and just about everywhere. And Smollett style false flags have been occurring and protected by those Democrats just about every time they happen. Chris has been on a great roll recently (Like he hasn’t before? He has.) and I have missed a target rich environment for great comments to make contemporaneously. So I have just read through many of the comments. Enjoyable. NotYetInACamp Mar 29 2019 at 2:55 pm Taking over foundations and returning them to their intended purposes would be a start, with them paying for the new long march to undo what they had previously funded. How? Legal details. Something the left has rarely concerned itself with. JTC Mar 29 2019 at 4:03 pm @ NotYet, at first I though you were still talking about swamp snakes in South Florida, and then I realized you were. 😉 But. “Government must pay the conservatives, libertarians, and such to undo what democrats have been financed to destroy over the decades.” Fuck that. Gov ain’t got no money but what they take from me. Tom Stockton Mar 29 2019 at 2:57 pm Rhetorical question, but… Oh My God!! When will all of this madness end?? It seems the leftists get bolder and bolder every day, and I worry for the good men and women who will die in the fight to return things to their rightful order, the way the United States of America used to be — and should be again. Be safe, my friends! Regards, Tom Stockton JTC Mar 29 2019 at 8:52 pm Speaking of the Everglades, POTUS landed Marine One today on top of the dike (levee) around Lake O in Canal Point directly across from where I played Little League in ’63 and looking out over the big lake where I fished, swam, skied and lived for most of my elementary through early marriage years. Point of the visit was the speedup in the levee reconstruction and dealing with the inflow/outflow of water flow that is key to environmental health and issues for all of the FL peninsula. Canal Point and the lake ag region is forty miles but a whole world from Mar A Lago and DJT proves more every day that there is no such thing as flyover country in America while he is prez…it is fly-to country. JTC Mar 29 2019 at 8:59 pm Desantis, Scott, Rubio et al were all there, skip over the self-serving tweets from Little Marco at the bottom if like me you can’t stand that smarmy twerp; he made sure he was in camera view the whole time. https://www.wptv.com/news/protecting-paradise/live-coverage-president-trumps-visit-to-lake-okeechobee-herbert-hoover-dike Punta Gorda Mar 29 2019 at 11:12 pm Speaking of Lake-O, during the last election one blathering point that was pounder on was big sugar being the cause of the Red Tide problem. Not a single one mentioned that Miami-Dade sewage treatment facilities had been fined nearly a million dollars by the EPA for untreated sewage releases in the previous year. One thing that Karina Brevis loves is free nutriants. cmblake6 Mar 29 2019 at 11:18 pm Their time is coming. Oh yes, it is.
