The Post Convention High

By all accounts (I’ve watched very little of it) the Republican National Convention administered an ass kicking to the Democrat party. So, no way I can top it or even capture it. And since I’m perilously close to my data limit (and it doesn’t renew until two Mondays from now)…I’m not going to try. I might not be around too much, either.

But I remain as convinced as ever that the Dems cannot win without massive fraud. I’m slightly less convinced that the good guys have anticipated and blocked enough of it. (We think we know what they plan to do, but the name of the game is to hit the opponent with something unexpected, and we’d be fools to assume that we know everything that they’ve got up their sleeves.)

As for the house and senate races, there the fraud is at the retail level, and I expect a lot of places will be “safe” for Dems. Certainly those places where the Republicans didn’t even bother fielding someone. And then there are the offices that aren’t even up this time. Will the Trump tide still be strong in 2022 when my state’s executive offices (as well as those of all counties) are up? I hope so, but lately even the Secretary of State office has been taken by the Dems, and that’s the one that runs elections.

Coin of The Day

Unless I think of something later today that won’t chew up bandwidth doing an image search, there won’t be a coin of the day. If you’re reading this sentence, I didn’t think of anything.

But there is something related on my mind.

I belong to a couple of coin clubs and we finally held a Zoom meeting for the first time since the Covidiocy began. There’s one guy in the club who will jump on you if you refer to our lowly copper-plated zinc plasticky-feeling one cent piece (or any of its more honorable predecessors) as a “penny.”

Technically, he’s correct. A “penny” is a British denomination, originally in silver, that was one twelfth of a shilling, which in turn was one twentieth of a pound, so 240 pennies made up a pound. And “pound” of course is sometimes called “pound sterling” and it was, once, literally, one pound of sterling silver (that hasn’t been true for many centuries; it began to be debased around 1300). One troy pound of 12 troy ounces, or 5760 grains. (And sterling silver is 0.925 or 37/40ths pure.) A troy grain is the same as an avoirdupois grain, which is what you use to measure powder and bullets. 24 grains, by the way, makes up a “pennyweight” and is 1/240th of a troy pound. (Those 16 and 8 penny nails at Home Depot or Lowes are a reference to the weight, not the price. And if you ever wonder why they abbreviate it “16d” instead of “16p” it’s because the penny ultimately derived from the Roman denarius.)

Whereas our cent is 100th of our dollar, and our dollar was originally a silver coin with 371 1/4 grains of silver in it. (Our silver dollars continued to have this much silver in them through 1935, excepting, of course, the Trade Dollar of the 1870s and 1880s.)

By the time the US was founded, the pound had been debased to the point where it was worth roughly five dollars, so as it happens, a shilling was worth about the same as a quarter. Which means the penny was a bit over two cents. (The penny could be subdivided into half pennies and farthings, so a farthing was roughly equal to one of our half cents.)

So why do we call our one cent piece a “penny”? And why does it irritate my friend?

It’s not entirely because it’s an unofficial term. He has no problem with calling the five cent piece a “nickel” even though it’s not an official name. (“Dime” is official–look at the coin, it says “One Dime” on it, not “Ten Cents.” That name goes all the way back to the original Federal coinage act of 1792, though it did not begin to appear on coins consistently until the 1830s.)

He’s irritated because “penny” also has another meaning, referring to a different country’s coinage.

But he’s wasting his time fighting it, because unfortunately the word “penny” has a distinct use.

If someone says “fifty cents” to you, it means something distinctly different from “fifty pennies” even if you both understand you’re talking about US money. “Fifty cents” means an amount of money, and it could be made of two quarters, five dimes, ten nickels, some combination, or it could be fifty pennies. Whoops, I telegraphed it! “Fifty pennies” specifically means 50 of those little copper-coated pieces of zinc. And that’s the distinction between “cent” (which is an amount of money) and “penny” (as used in the US), which is the physical object that represents one cent. Technically, of course, you could describe that object as the “one cent piece” and talk about “50 one cent pieces” but people are lazy and that will be cut down in size to some more convenient phrase like “50 pennies.”

[Now if you’re talking to a coin dealer and want to look at the one cent pieces in stock, you could say “Could I look over your cents” and that will be understood, but that’s a special case. But no one would do this, because the dealer will want you to be more specific before he hands you a box full of coins, for example whether you mean Indian head cents, Lincoln cents with the wheat ears (“wheaties,” no relation to Wheatietoo), and so on. And there is a big dividing line between large cents (pre 1857) and small cents (1857 to date), too, so someone might ask for “large cents.”]

So this turns out to be another chapter in the endless wrangle between prescriptivists (who describe what language ought to be) and the descriptivists (who describe what language actually is). And since “penny” is used in a way that makes a distinction from “cent,” it’s never going away, unless some celebrity comes up with an alternative and manages to popularize it. Personally, I’ve been known to call them “zinkys” but I’m no celebrity, and besides that can’t apply to the plentitude of pre-1982 pieces still circulating.)

PS: Even “nickel” is problematic. Because the first small cents that came out in 1857 were twelve percent nickel, they immediately got nicknamed “nicks.” Then in 1865 came the three cent nickel piece which lasted until 1889. This got named the “nickel” to distinguish it from the three cent silver piece which had disappeared from circulation thanks to the Civil War. And finally in 1866 came the five cent nickel piece we know today. When silver finally started trickling back into circulation, the half dime was simply discontinued because the (five cent) nickel had completely taken over the job. And (oh by the way) these “nickels” are only 25 percent nickel, the rest is copper.

  2. This is off topic , but shopping vegetables today for dinner this realization floated into my consciousness the black live matters theme is to dehumanize white people. I have been told by family that before Hitler came to power how Jews were dehumanized. This is first subtle and then more notable.
    Just as in 1936 corporation and upper class took the wrong side so we see the same.
    As a Christian we know that all lives matter because all people are God’s creation.
    Dehumanization is dangerous because one does not see the one we kill or bead up or whose store gets burned as human. The media has done a good job destroying goodness in humanity. Now Government shut down the church
    why? This is all a plan to destroy our cohesiveness in Christianity our worship to God.

    1. Singingsoul,
      You are correct. The parallels are frightening and the worst thing to do is to cower.

      Never forget THEY ARE NOT THE MAJORITY.

      From the US census:
      Blacks are 14.5% of the US population
      LBGT are 3.8% of the US population
      Hermaphrodites are 1.7% of the US population
      Muslims 0.9% of the US population
      Hindu 0.7% of the US population (Never hear much from them do you?)
      Buddhist 0.7% of the US population (Never hear much from them either)

      If you look at the 2010 Rasmussen poll, the breakdown was roughly 1/3 Tea Party, 1/3 Republican & 1/3 Democrat. That was when the Democrats were still sane. I think if you did an actual true poll, you would find only about 20% at best actually support the Socialist/communist turn the Democrats have taken.

      There are less than a hundred thousand active members of over a dozen different Communist parties in the USA (CPUSA actually doesn’t have credibility with most Communists as they endorse the Democratic Party).

      And eleven percent of the US population (one in nine) would view a Communist revolution positively, while seventy eight percent would view it negatively.

      Of course, that leaves out Communists on the hippy end of the spectrum, and it includes non-Communists who just want something exciting, paradigm shifting, or chaotic to happen and would welcome any sort of revolution or collapse.

      No poll has just simply asked “Do you Identify As A Communist”.

        I know my grandfather had a lot of Jewish customers who came by to say well goodbye in that they were leaving Germany.

        One person once said to my grandfather ‘In the land of schiller and goethe its safe’. That person had sent his kids away. They survived and the rest of the family didn’t. The daughter searched for my grandmother when it was safe years later.

        Most German’s had no clue what was going on BTS. And if they tried to help well you can guess how that turned out.

        I think one very interesting point is that no one talked about what happened in WWII. Not even in school.

        1. My son got a full ration in school of what happened in WWII, and when I first moved here in the early 1980s, I was amazed (especially with only 2.5 “real” television channels) at the number of “breast-beating mea culpa” movies shown almost nightly about how bad the Germans were in WWI and WWII. And this, in Germany.

          Looking back, I wonder if it was a psy-op to get the Germans to hate themselves, just like the libturds are trying to do to Americans now… the BLM “movement” being a prime example…

          My son wrote a paper about the “Bekennende Christen” (Niemöller, Bonhöffer, et. al.) as a term project one year (long and detailed PowerPain Presentation). It’s sobering just what the BK folks had to go through… but it IS being taught in the schools here…

      So THAT is what they are actually there for. To FORCE-ABLY REMOVE President Trump.

      It is STRAIGHT out of the Commie Handbook. Mob Rule is WHAT the Communists use to take over a country. Protests, riots, being the squeeky wheel making demands. Think about it:

      Hindu 0.7% of the US population (Never hear much from them do you?)
      Buddhist 0.7% of the US population (Never hear much from them either)

      SOoooo, Since when do these small percentages of the population get to DICTATE to the majority HMMmmm???

      William R. Russell was in Russia soon after the Bolsheviks seized power and spent considerable time there, working on Creel propaganda against the Germans, for the Bolsheviks, and later against the Bolsheviks. Russell described how he saw the communist tradecraft:

      The way they worked their way to the seizure of power was as follows: Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed. Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union. Talk on soapboxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Try to break down the democratic processes from within. Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings. Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

He wrote the first stories about the war to be published in the west, often scooping Russian publications…” So he has SEEN George Soros handy work.

        Obama’s coup against Donald Trump and a terrorist plot against America

        It is a long article but here are snippets.

        Imagine the horror of progressive Democrats will feel knowing former US President Barrack Obama hired a complete Information Operation (IO) team to destroy their base. The IO team, initially comprised of over 40,000 foreign operators was hired through the State Department and let loose on dissenting Democratic Party members long before they set their sights on Donald Trump.

        That foreign operators worked with US Intel community leaders cutting the nation in half irrevocably to chop dissent out of Obama’s own party will soon be a matter of record for you. I offer a look inside the callous and nuanced program Obama used to divide the American people permanently and march it toward civil war.

        ….Within a month of that, these plans were fully formed.

        Billionaire globalist George Soros is planning to eliminate the majority of Trump supporters from social media before the 2020 election, according to a leaked document.

        The memo contains plans for defeating Trump through impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat “fake news.”

        Scrolling back to the timeline at the top starting in October 2016, you’ll see the components of IOTA Global’s IO operation and the Diasporas work to start sedition work against Donald Trump. George Soros funding and planning of the protests. How the hacking saga, ODNI report, Propornot, and fake news, Russia –Trump collusion from the FBI and Mueller, planning the 2017 inauguration protests, calls for Trump’s impeachment, the so-called Muslim ban protests, and the Women’s protest all happened in a very short period of time directly before and after the election….

        The current plan is to drive into Portland as a huge caravan at 6 p.m….”

  8. In response to so many posts I am seeing here and elsewhere….

    AMERICA IS NOTHING LIKE GERMANY IN THE 1930’s.

    Any comparisons to same are realistically and historically ridiculous.

    Moreover….

    Everyone here well knows that the left controls the media, and because of that, they get to pretend that we….the “silent majority”….are not the majority.

    Nothing could be further from the truth, as you all well know.

    You also KNOW that the polls are EXACTLY no different than 2016….total and complete pap.

    So why is are so many here filled with such doubt and worry??

    STOP LOOKING FOR THINGS TO BE AFRAID OF!!

    Is POTUS afraid??

    Has God himself not commended you, “DO NOT BE AFRAID”??

    Then WHY are you posting fear porn and CONSTANT worry issues??

    WHERE IS THE CONFIDENCE AND FAITH IN THIS COMMUNITY OF CHRISTIAN WARRIORS????

    The constant fear porn and OMG!! postings are REEEALLY starting to piss me off.

    😡

    Winners don’t cower in fear and worry. Winners are BOLD, CONFIDENT, and persistently optimistic. Winners respond to threats that “the arrows fired against you will block out the sun” by saying, “Good. Then we get to fight in the shade!”

    Do I REEEALLY need to constantly assure you that POTUS has already won this election? That voters….in the face of insanity like “defund the police”….are NOT going to deliver a DECIMATING electoral rebuke to the left??

    PDJT has been delivering win after win after win after win after win. So much so, the left is acting in UNPRECEDENTED and DESPERATE ways that are….by any REASONABLE and historic measure….political suicide.

    WHY ARE YOU DOUBTING THE CONFIDENCE YOUR BETTER SELF IS TELLING YOU TO HAVE??

    Are you SO afraid of loss that you would rather be skeptical of the promises PDJT has and is making??

    LAUGH IN THE FACE OF THE DEVIL AND HIS MINIONS!! YOU ARE AN ETERNAL SOUL WHOSE SALVATION IS ASSURED BY YOUR FAITH AND HOPE IN JESUS CHRIST….

    …WHO HAS UNDENIABLY SENT DONALD J TRUMP TO PRESERVE OUR BELOVED REPUBLIC AND LEAD IT AWAY FROM THE MADNESS OF THE COMMUNIST LEFT.

    Kenosha, WI looks NOTHING like a true war zone. NOTHING.

    America is NOT 1930’s Germany. Not. Even. Close.

    President Trump has not failed on a SINGLE issue….let alone a major one.

    We ARE witnessing a revolution in the USA….a REJECTION of the leftist pap and filth that has plagued us since Reagan. 😀

    REVEL IN THIS MOMENT!! SEE THE DESPERATION OF THE LEFT FOR WHAT IT IS!!

    What are they gonna do next….release a global pandemic??

    Can’t you recognize a defeated enemy when you see one??

    Please.

    Stop with the fear and worry.

    Have confidence. Have FAITH. Yes, you CAN believe what folks like Flep, Thomas Wictor, and President Trump are telling you!

    And you have the commandment of the Lord….DO NOT BE AFRAID.

    THIS IS AMERICA!!

    Could we fall? Could we fail?

    Yes. But NOT now. And most certainly, NOT with this President.

    Let’s give the fear porn and worry a break for a while.

    Please and thanks.

    Trump’s been doing nothing but growing his base since 2016.

    They never stopped working on that ground game.

    Meanwhile the Democratic Party went baying-at-the-moon-and-eating-it’s-own-sh*t insane.

    And you can see this in places like Portland, Chicago, NYC & other Dem-run towns.

    The Democrats did everything wrong since that 2018 midterm election when they got control of the House.

    They immediately made a bunch of uber-far-leftist radicals like AOC the new face of the future of their party.

    They introduced The Green New Deal.

    They fielded the largest Democratic presidential field of all time that went further and further left as the primaries went on.

    They **all** proudly boasted they’d open the borders & institute massive tax increases to give full health care benefits to illegals.

    They all put their hands up.

    Then Beto O’Irishman, the guy Biden has proudly tapped to be his ‘gun legislation guy’, boasted “Hell yes we’re going to take your AR-15!”

    And then at the end…the lone survivor was…Dementia Joe…..

  12. Brent Cates has a play by play of the Kyle Rittenhouse saga that has new info. The Dumpster fire extinguished was being pushed by the rioters INTO GASOLINE PUMPS AT A GAS STATION!!!

    “…Footage has emerged of Rittenhouse moments before running to give that Extinguisher to the man who used it to PROTECT EVERYONE THERE from being blown up.

    It’s reported that this enraged Rosenbaum who immediately focused on Rittenhouse.
    Rosenbaum charges at Rittenhouse & **tries to disarm him**.
    The 17 yr old breaks away & begins running with the ENRAGED 36 yr old & about 8 BLM protesters in hot pursuit….”

    Note that Brent was really ticked off at Kyle a couple days ago, thinking he was a vigilante but now that the real story has come out he has shifted sides.

    The thread is well worth the read and is good to pass on to others.

    Motorcycle Club Crashes Black Lives Matter Street Protest in Florida – Starts Chanting, “USA! USA!…” (Video)

    This wasn’t supposed to happen!

    Black Lives Matter were having a perfectly fine protest against cops in Florida on Friday when several members of the local motorcycle club interrupted their march by revving their engines as they drove through the protest.

    Of course, the cop-hating BLM activists complained to the police and demanded they be arrested on noise charges.

    They hate cops until they need cops.

          1. OK, but that isn’t the question I’m asking either.

            I am NOT worried that Trump will lose the election, but I’m seeing that claim used as a “factoid.” So either it’s not true, a partial truth leaving out key stuff, or it IS true somehow but it is some sort of anomaly.

    1. They are comparing television numbers. Those were lower. VIEWS for the entire convention were much higher for Republicans. I have not seen a “break out” of views for Trump’s speech. Lots of us, me included, don’t have cable, so we watch online.

      1. True it’s hard to assess these things.

        If it does turn out that indeed, TV ratings for Biden were higher than Trump, but internet ratings swamped them, then that’s a good answer–on the other hand being able to tell the sack of shit liberal they’re lying outright would be more satisfying.

          1. Hmm. Well, your monitor is the same kind of device as the telly–in fact the prevalence of 1920-1080p monitors (dreadful for computer work, too damn short when a document is shown full width) is because they could be made from the same production machinery as wide screen TVs. And likely neither one is a CRT any more. The true distinction is in the source of the crap it displays, not what it’s being displayed on.

      That is only TV viewership, so it tells me that more Biden supporters watch TV and network news than Trump supporters. 🤫 But don’t tell the media that a huge number of people have turned them off altogether.

    Tucker Carlson to reveal ‘shocking’ conversation between Michael Cohen and CNN host Chris Cuomo

    “Television is a famously phony medium, grown men wear makeup to work. Hate to admit that, but it’s true. But television also, over time, is revealing. If you watch long enough, you can tell who is real and who is fraudulent. Well, you’re about to have all of your perceptions confirmed,” Carlson began, teasing the tape.

    “Remember Michael Cohen, the president’s former lawyer, the one who went to jail for tax evasion? Cohen was a committed sleazeball, so it probably won’t surprise you to learn that he was very friendly with a number of well-known media figures. Underneath it all, they had a lot in common. The unethical lawyer and the unethical talk show hosts. Cohen talked to all of them recently. Well, it turns out those conversations were tape-recorded … Copies have been floating around for quite some time now, none has aired publicly yet. Who is he talking to? A lot of people,” Carlson said.

    “Chris Cuomo at CNN was one of them. Cohen and the governor’s brother had a pretty shocking conversation. Bottom line, Chris Cuomo is not the person he pretends to be on CNN. And there is more. This is a developing story. We’ll have all of it for you next week. Tune in.”

    Excited to announce that I have officially been endorsed by Rabbi Alan Sherman, who served as the Executive Vice President of the Palm Beach Board of Rabbis!

    He’s been a lifelong Democrat, he has known my opponent Lois Frankel for over 35 years (longer than I’ve been alive), he’s voted for her in the past, but can no longer support the Democrat Party & their hatred for Jews & Israel.

    After meeting with me, he has fully endorsed me and switched his voter registration to vote Republican!

    He’ll be voting for me & President Donald Trump on November 3, 2020!

    Rabbi Alan Sherman is the only Reform rabbi out of 1500 Reform Rabbis to Openly support Trump!

    He’s leading the way for Jews to leave the Democrat Party, which is now the party of Jew haters & Israel haters!

    I am thrilled to have his endorsement! And I’m looking forward to unseating my radical Democrat self-hating Jewish opponent who …

      1. The Father of Abram, Isaac and Jacob would destroy enemies that were dangerous and who would not be rehabilitated. To me that always meant that at the appropriate time in history, the enemies of God would be destroyed ……. completely, or they would rally back, sometimes many years later. Make no mistake, this is a war between good and evil. The corrupted politicians who support extreme left ideology must be totally and completely crushed at the polls. Not one remaining to find new ways to rebuild.

          Worse still, the liars manipulate weak minds who have an overwhelming need to “be good”, even if evil people are telling them how to be good in a very sneaky way.

          White people white-knighting for black people to get themselves killed by cops by defying those cops – led by an organization called “Black Lives Matter” – it’s so Orwellian, I don’t even know where to begin.

          1. I agree completely. It bears reminding me that this is not my battle, it is the Lord’s, but He achieves it in many ways including thru His people. So I need to do all possible with what He has given me.

            I have a great respect for many of the people on here, but I’m not persuaded that many realize the gravity of this time in history.

            in our midst God has raised up examples to rally our support …. each using our own God given skills and experience to share. I thank Him for the role this blog and other WP blogs play. Not all warriors and not all teachers but some simply encouragers and some examples as J.MacArthur in CA reminding Christians of the importance of fellowship together and challenge rules that are contrary to Biblical principles. The lies from this ‘pandemic’ are almost beyond comprehension.

            In the US, there is a means to be able to recognize truth as well as corruption with the ability to call it what it is. The same cannot be said in Canada. We have lost our freedom to speak our minds and lost the ability to bear arms to defend against a corrupt Gov’t. And we have a dictator who bullies people against other groups. We are split by politics, ethnicity, colour of skin, spoken languages, dependence on Gov’t handouts while overtaxing others and differing worldviews. They have continued to allow many legitimate immigrants or illegal migrants to bolster their support at the polls. And we have no Trump at this stage to give voice to our cause. Our Schools are so liberal and espouse a further developed stage of communism with each graduating class that I believe the Universities serve no useful purpose and should all be closed if we are to survive.

            So please continue to be diligent in your resolve to not lose any more of your freedoms. Keep kickin’ butt an’ takin’ names. DJT is God’s man for this time and he needs the support of every free breathing person during these times. He is surrounded by many who represent the enemy of our souls. And he gives voice to all free people around the world.
