Here’s a blast from the past:

Public Service Message

It has been pointed out that all of the rioting is nominally on account of criminals who resisted arrest in one form or another, and someone suggested schools ought to teach people not to resist arrest.

Chris Rock on a similar vein, in 2007

Granted an “ass kicking” isn’t the same as being shot, but both can result from the same stupid act. You may ultimately beat the rap, but you aren’t going to avoid the ride.

A Reminder Of Today’s Big Issue.

Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People...Our campaign represents a true existential threat, like they’ve never seen before.

Then-Candidate Donald J. Trump

Needs to happen, soon.

Lawyer Appeasement Section

OK now for the fine print.

Please note that our menu has changed, please listen to all of the options.

This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Political correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines,  here, with an addendum on 20191110.

We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

1. No food fights
2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. The first rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government take your guns.
5. The gun is always loaded.
5a. If you actually want the gun to be loaded, like because you’re checking out a bump in the night, then it’s empty.
6. Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
7. Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
8. Be sure of your target and what is behind it.
9. Social Justice Warriors, ANTIFA pukes, BLM hypocrites, and other assorted varieties of Marxists can go copulate with themselves, or if insufficiently limber, may substitute a rusty wire brush suitable for cleaning the bore of a twelve or ten gauge.

(Hmm a few extras seem to have crept in.)

Coin of The Day

The Wooden Nickel.

No, there was never a wooden nickel–except possibly issued by shops as a “good for five cents in trade” token.

But we do have that old advice to not take any wooden nickels and it’s sound advice.

A lot of people, fourteen days ago, were speculating that Big Things were going to happen over the next thirteen days. I more than half expected it to be baloney, but went along with it, primarily to keep it fresh in people’s minds.

(And because Darwin is cute.)

The thirteen days have passed, and what has happened? RBG has died. And maybe someone is actually going to do something about Hunter Biden…and then again maybe not. Congressional investigations generally turn out to be kabuki theater. Even if someone gets referred to DOJ for prosecution, nothing ever seems to come of it. Look at McCabe, for crying out loud.

In other words, the heat has been turned up a little on the Deep State, but hardly a spectacular, earth-shaking thirteen days.

This all stemmed from ONE person on the internet speculating about what it meant that someone on Durham’s team had quit. And it turned out to be nothing.

I see us doing this a LOT, to be honest, and I’ve been caught myself.

We are rightly skeptical of anything the other side puts out.

But we really need to be cautious about what people who are (or at least appear to be) on our side are putting out too. They could be “controlled opposition.” They could just be self-aggrandizing assholes trying to look smarter than they are (I won’t name names here but there’s a very well known pair of initials). Or they could just have over-active imaginations.

Even people I’ve been told are “reliable” and I shouldn’t label as “just Someone On The Internet” have made statements, pronouncements and predictions that have simply come to nothing.

Look at everything you are told with a critical eye, especially the stuff you are hoping is true.

Obligatory PSA/Reminder

Just one more thing, my standard Public Service Announcement. We don’t want to forget this!!!

Remember Hong Kong!!! And remember the tens of millions who died under the “Great Helmsman” Chairman Mao.

I hope this guy isn’t rotting in the laogai somewhere!

中国是个混蛋 !!!

For my money the Great Helmsman is Hikaru Sulu (even if the actor is a dingbat).

      Ground report Carson City / Dayton, NV

      Going through stores I always take a visual “inventory” of the stores, overall inventory posture. Generally looking at groceries, household stuff and OTC meds and vitamins. .

      – Two local Walmart’s and local Smith’s (Kroger). Few “holes” on the shelves – less “not in stock” items. But the depth of material, or quantity of stock, is NOT deep. Shelves, including chill and frozen, NOT packed as they were in January of this year.

      – Other areas of both Walmart’s is really crappy. Numerous holes – out of stock quite common. Depth or quantity of material, terrible. They ARE struggling to get stock in. IMO.

      – Local COSTCO, filled to the rafters lately. Have not looked up to see what is up there. Could be Christmas crap. I need to look at that aspect.

      Have noticed freezers and fridges in stock at Lowe’s and Home Depot. I probably need to snatch up a freezer as mine is ten years old and absolutely full. Can’t afford to lose all that food. Two fridge/freezers eight and five years old. Those should suffice.

        Freezers are great…but they require electricity.

        Got a generator?
        With that kind of investment in frozen food, a generator might be a good idea.

        Dry goods like rice, pasta and beans, are a good idea.
        Also canned sources of protein like tuna, sardines and canned hams.

              2. Sounds counterintuitive, but fridges and freezers also have a low-temperature design point, beneath which they won’t run (or will seize up). At least over here, there are temperature bands in their operating specs (e.g. S, T, ST, etc.) that specify in which temperature zone they can safely operate.

                Probably the compressor(s) or condensor coils might freeze up…

                Would be neat, though, to be able to pipe in cold air to chill the evaporator coils and carry the heat away…

        1. My parents grew up in the depression… Dad never forgot… always had reserves. I was very “impressed” with that particular trait… beginning when I was on my own and later married, always backups. I didn’t get into prepping I think because of all the teasing I got from the grandchildren… but I was well stocked when the lockdown came and we never ran out of anything. As Wolfie suggested, still making sure we have reserves… just in case. 😉

          1. And that is all prepping is, to me. Having reserves. Breadth and depth of reserves an individual decision based on needs, ability and comfort level.

            Do I really believe we’ll have problems, no. Not really. But I never believed we’d have an event like our faux plandemic.

            Agree with Wolf assessment somewhere tonight, President Trump won’t let it happen. President Trump has worked wonders with persuasion and Emergency Powers of the Presidency.

            As an aside, for many, many years better half and I literally planned every meal from payday to payday. Shopping on payday for exactly what we needed, which was all we could afford. A few days before payday, scraping together loose coins to buy milk, bread… Thankfully those days are well behind us. 🙂

              1. Exactly. Having “too much month at the end of the money” is not a good thing, but also results in learning planning and discipline (and some very odd meals 🙂 ) which help in later life. Both my parents lived through the depression and WWII, albeit on opposite sides ot the pond, and their attitude about waste not, want not lives on through my family.

  2. FBI Agents So Worried About Russia Hoax They Purchased Liability Insurance

    https://www.sgtreport.com/2020/09/fbi-agents-so-worried-about-russia-hoax-they-purchased-liability-insurance/

    FBI agents were so worried about the legality of their activities during the Trump-Russia “collusion” probe that some purchased liability insurance to protect themselves if the pro-Clinton conspiracy were revealed, newly-released court documents show.

    Filed in the federal government’s malicious prosecution of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, the documents reveal texts between agents that show where the real “collusion” was: among top government agents who, with the Crossfire Hurricane probe, tried to interfere nullify the 2016 election because they didn’t like the winner.

    But that’s not all we learn from the texts, disclosed yesterday at The Federalist. Top FBI officials hoped Crossfire Hurricane would help elect Hillary Clinton.

        There is one Jewish guy who continuously engages the Nazis, and I need to follow him just because he’s “on point”, but I can’t read his stuff most of the time because it’s almost as psychologically damaging to just read his counters, which have to “logically restate what he’s countering, as it is to read the things he’s quoting or replying to. This is what the Nazis did in Germany – they just beat down ALL opposition until the opposition has that “battered” complex SD talks about – it’s VERY real. And THAT is why the Dems and their media are so much like them, as were the Soviets.

Prime example, of course, is the FauxCoronaChiComVirus. She’s declared that there is no cure at present, and probably will declare that everything will be shut down until there’s a vaccine…. which she will TRY to force upon us. Perhaps, finally then, the long-asleep German citizenry will awake and find their future slipping away from them, but at least in time to halt the slide, and claw back all the losses (and THAT will take some time, too)…

  3. Kelly Loeffler’s Bill To Protect Female Athletes Is A Sign The GOP Finally Figured Out The Culture War

    Sen. Kelly Loeffler, in the midst of a heated campaign, introduced legislation this week to protect female athletes under Title IX. The Georgia senator is picking exactly the kind of culture war battle Republicans long avoided, terrified of inciting controversy with the media and left. Loeffler’s decision to introduce the bill now, as she fights to retain her seat, is deeply telling. Social conservatives should take heart.

    The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2020, co-sponsored by Sens. Mike Lee, (R-Utah), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), stipulates schools that receive federal funds would be in violation of Title IX should they “permit a person whose sex is male to participate in an athletic program or activity that is designated for women or girls.”

    Sitting Federal Prosecutor Says Bill Barr’s ‘Unprecedented Politicization’ of AG’s Office Has ‘Brought Shame’ on the DOJ

    https://lawandcrime.com/department-of-justice/sitting-federal-prosecutor-says-bill-barrs-unprecedented-politicization-of-ags-office-has-brought-shame-on-the-doj/

    While Bill Barr was rebuked in June by more than 1,250 former employees of the Department of Justice, this week marked the first time a sitting federal prosecutor directly and explicitly called out U.S. Attorney General for having intentionally turned the department into a political tool of the Trump administration.

    In a letter published in the Boston Globe on Thursday, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts James D. Herbert derided Barr’s second tenure as head of the DOJ, saying that his conduct in office “should concern all citizens.”

    “While I am a federal prosecutor, I am writing to express my own views, clearly not those of the department, on a matter that should concern all citizens: the unprecedented politicization of the office of the attorney general,” Herbert wrote. “The attorney general acts as though his job is to serve only the political interests of Donald J. Trump. This is a dangerous abuse of power.”

I got tied up with “stuff” and was not able to hear the “Live” announcement of ACB’s nomination and introduction but I was able a bit ago to listen to all of it, thanks to prayingmedic’s periscope. I have to say my take on Judge Amy is she has courage. How do I know, you may ask. She said so… yeah, She SAID so. In my book that takes self awareness and confidence. I think It was a direct message to the Commies. I sure hope they get it, cuz this gal who grew up in New Orleans, was No. 1 in her class at Notre Dame, clerked for Justice Scalia, was appointed by President Donald Trump as Judge for Chicago’s 7th Circuit WILL be the 9th Justice for SCOTUS. Judge Amy has a SPINE.

    Then I spent about 30 mins surfing the net only to discover that all my favs are talking about is… what the Commies are saying about Amy.

    I’m callin’ a lid on it… just going to scroll on past it. Not just tonight but in the weeks to come. I mean, if the Judge is
    going to ignore them and move through the confirmation process with her head held high, then the least I can do is
    ignore the screaming children and their lies and scroll past the peeps bringing it. I can put the time to better use, by praying for the Lord to hold her steady as she walks this path.

    oh, don’t forget… Monday is Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement (or At onement, depending on your emphasis… ) so it
    will be Tuesday before the Senate takes up the hassle over the Continuing Resolution and funds the government beyond Sept. 30, when the present one expires, until December 21 iirc. Judge Amy will no doubt be making the rounds of meet and greet with the Senators (mostly Republicans, as a few of the DIMS have already forgotten their manners and stated they will not meet… ). My senator, Ms Lindsey, has announced that his Committee will hold a Hearing on Oct. 12th which I find confusing as Congress will recess (actually many will leave on the 9th) on the 12th so that those running for reelection can go home and reintroduce themselves to voters who haven’t seen them in ages. Wonder if Ms. Lindsey checked in with Potus or maybe Mitch didn’t send him a memo indicating they may not even hold a “Hearing”… ? (I made that part up… it’s a fantasy I share with some here… one which will cause many DIM heads to explode I’m sure)

    Got to run… binge watching an ACORN original. Remember, I won’t be “liking” your reports about what the DIMS
    are saying about Judge Amy, just scrollin’ by… no offence, just that I haven’t the time for their tantrums. Anyway, I’ve
    already seen the movie.. I think it was called Kavanaugh…

            There is an effort to fight this ‘trans’ invasion of women’s sports – they have a good argument – and there is bill that is addressing this problem – this is another reason many are joining the #walkaway movement.
