George, Edward, Amnesty and TOTUS


The trial of George Zimmerman started yesterday. Here are the highlights. The best place to follow the trial is at Legal Insurrection. Defense attorney Andrew Branca is doing excellent play-by-play and analysis.

Edward Snowden has disappeared. China said he left for Russia but the Russians say he never arrived. I’m gonna take a wild guess and say that somebody is lying.

The Senate Gang of Eight’s immigration amnesty bill will not be filibustered, meaning that it is virtually assured to pass in the Senate. All it needs now is a simple majority vote. If it passes in the House, you’ll know the fix was in.

TOTUS will be reading a speech today on the topic of Global Warming Climate Change. (We’re saved!) If Obama really wants to do his part to stop global warming he’ll quit giving speeches. All that hot air is harming the nation.

What else is happening?

    Love how the prog media refers to George Zimmerman as Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin as Trayvon. Why not call Zimmerman George or Trayvon….Martin. The bias is no longer subtle.

    Not newsworthy at all, but a friend of mine appears to have met somebody and it cracked me up. On FB she posted a picture of a cat and said, “look what woke me up this morning”. Her friends, who have no mercy, have been posting, “that’s not your apartment and that’s not your cat. Should I call somebody?” and, ” Do the people who live there know you’re having an affair with their cat?”

    It’s election day in MA! Time to move the pond scum to a different pond. Because the other guy leaves the toilet seat up.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Who will win? πŸ™‚

      • elliesmom says:

        Markey, “the pond scum” is highly favored to win. It’s going to be in the 90’s today here. I don’t know how that will affect turnout.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I see the Elizabeth Warren supporters are happy, no matter who wins, Warren will be considered the senior Senator from MA in ONLY 6 MONTHS !!!!!!1!! This remarkable lady is now ready to be PRESIDENT !!!!!1!! Sigh.

      • elliesmom says:

        It’s highly likely Ed Markey is going to win the senate seat. He’s been in the House since they started slicing the bread so it’s ludicrous she’ll be senior to him, but her whole candidacy has been ludicrous since the beginning. I truly believe the vile progs are planning to run her as the next “historic president”. I think a Republican can beat her – if the Republicans really want to, but lately, I’m not sure that’s in their plans.

        • Constance says:

          The Dems really should branch out from being the east coast elitist Ivy indoctrinated party. It just doesn’t appeal to most of the country unless they are angry with Republicans.

        • catarina says:

          AP calls it for Markey, but Gomez got a LOT of votes.
          Final counts aren’t in yet but it’s the usual bullshit.
          Somerville, Cambridge, Boston, “Woosta”-all the unionites got driven like livestock to the polls as usual.
          Lots of broken voting machine stories floating around. Same sad stuff.

      LOL! That is so true. When men give women advice it usually comes across as condescending, as if they’re trying to fix something because you’re too stupid to fix it yourself. When women give men advice, it usually comes across as nagging or scolding.

      Seriously, the best approach is to just sigh, say okay, and then ask them how much bail money they think they’re going to be needing πŸ™‚

        While my heart was at the Buffet concert, after 40 years I’ve realized you can’t have fun if the person with you isn’t having fun, too. Dinner at the inn and our accommodations were lovely. Saturday is my birthday. Poor guy has it rough the end of June. My SIL has planned a Sunday brunch. My grandson wants to take me to the aquarium in CT on Friday. Both will be lovely, too. But no one has yet asked me what I would like to do. So I’m taking my husband to Bermuda for his birthday in October. I didn’t ask him if he’d like to go. I know he’ll have a good time. lol It’s worked for 40 years. It will work for a few more.

      • Condescending — it’s part of the burden we bear.

    If she had, she’d be getting the “Snowden” treament by the press.

    again backtrack sticks to the American people. hurt the coal industry. wonder how much his BFFs will pocket on this plan

    • Mary Effler says:

      was it ever really on? The Daleys are masters @ fixing elections & stuffing ballot boxes.Especially this last one. I think the only reason he was reelected was becuz of early (read multiple) voting laws

    • Constance says:

      If Toure said the N word he should be fired immediately since that is apparently the standard.

      Or possibly the men who run Food Network would rather have a younger babe like the wonder bra Italian cook and so they slandered Paula, a common woman’s favorite to get rid of her. There rally is no racism standard only a prejudice against women over 40 who are fat.

    way off topic.

    I am watching an excellent cross-exam of a witness that is either stupid or lying.

  12. wmcb says:

    Good interview with a climate scientist on the difficulty of explaining the now 15-year lack of rise in temperature. He’s quite honest. He says that it casts much doubt on the AGW models, and if it extends to 20 years, it will pretty much falsify them.

    If that happens, there are two possibilities, he says: 1) Our models were wrong because CO2 has a much, much smaller effect than we theorized, or 2) We have completely underestimated the extent of natural fluctuations in climate.

    Yes. Because while the hysterical alarmists tried hard to overhaul countries, institute policies that would bankrupt economies, and change everything about everyone’s lives, some of us out here were yelling “SLOW DOWN! STOP THE PANIC! I DON’T BUY IT WHOLESALE.” For our efforts we are lamblasted as anti-science cretin “deniers” in the pay of Big Oil.

    After the next 5 to 10 years, when this mass hysteria over a non-existent OMG CRISIS! is finally laid to rest, I will be expecting my apology from those mindless politically-motivated lemmings who call my skepticism anti-science and ignorant. Think I’ll get it? Or will it go down the memory hole that they ever even tried to change the entire world’s behavior via force, over a senseless emotional panic? You know, like the fact that in the 60’s and 70’s they freaked out over a new Ice Age on the way is now buried.

    • wmcb says:

      I’ve never been one to adamantly proclaim that no warming or cooling due to man happens at all. My beef was always the “We must DO SOMETHING right this second!” *manufactured crisis* aspect of it.

      Look, whenever you get politics involved in trying to make immediate sweeping changes in policy based on a fairly new science that is a *blip* on the timeline of the phenomena being studied, my bullshit detector goes off. Study all you want. Publish your results, pro and con. But don’t try to forcibly change the behavior of the entire human race unless what you have is so iron clad and obvious that NO ONE outside of a truly mentally ill person can deny it. No one today argues whether the earth is flat, except a loon. Saying that climate science predictions had met that standard was pure political propoganda.

      • Jadzia says:

        I am not a scientist (ha ha ha ha ha), but am just commenting to note that it is almost July and we are FREEZING OUR ASSES OFF. And technically we live in the SOUTH of France. The weather has been unseasonably (I am told) cold here for the past 3 years.

  13. myiq2xu says:

    The prosecution’s case against George Zimmerman is deflating like a balloon.

  14. wmcb says:

    • They and the AGW crowd favor the same technique. Scream and make outrageous claims, and convince TPTB to pass laws assuming you’re right. It sucks when that falls through.

    interesting take on backtrack’s speech about Keystone pipeline

  17. wmcb says:

    Great interview with Nassem Nicholas Taleb, author of Black Swan. It’s long, but it’s very very good. I largely agree with him about decentralization being the safest path for very complex systems. If one must have errors (and they are inevitable), it is better that the risk is spread. I don’t like banks that are too big to fail. Or corporations that are too big to fail. Or governments that are too big to fail. Because when they DO fail (and they will) the damage is catastrophic.

    He makes an interesting comment about Switzerland being a country that, while decidedly leftist in many ways, has avoided the error of a too-centralized govt. The *local* govts there have a lot of autonomy, so all the volatility on the micro level translates to more stability on the macro level.

    I’m also glad to see him pointing out that real market capitalism was never intended to be debt-based. It was intended to be equity-based, which is not the same thing at all. Debt in a succesful economy is a short-term tool, not a long-term structure. Debt-based economies in history have been disastrous, period.

    I’m a big fan of as much localized control in govt as possible. Not because I will necessarily always think those local decisions are the best, but because when they are BAD, the damage is limited. Anyway, the interview is fascinating. Give it a read if you have time.

    • angienc says:

      Does he point out that in Switzerland every male is given a state-paid for gun and ammo on their 18th birthday?
      ‘Cause that probably has a lot to do with their ability to avoid a too-centralized govt.

      • 49erDweet says:

        Ka-BOOM! Nailed it!

      • Jadzia says:

        Although guns are not state-issued here, I was pretty shocked when we got here and I learned that almost everybody (at least here in the rural areas and small towns) is armed. There is a LOT of hunting, too (to the extent that there have been weekend mornings that I’ve had to keep my kids inside bc I can hear the gunfire). My FIL has something like seven guns. To protect, I don’t know, the pool I guess? But notwithstanding the fact that the socialist party is in power, our government is fairly decentralized as well. Most of one’s interaction with the government here takes place at the mayor’s office or at what would be equivalent to the “county” level.

    Just for giggles

    • Jadzia says:

      When I read the title of that video too fast I thought it said “Coke in Heaven,” and couldn’t figure out why anybody would oppose that.

  19. 49erDweet says:

    Speaking of our bat-crazy VP, guess who’s photo adorns the wall of our local SSA office instead of backtracks. Yep! ROFL!!!! Almost threw me out.

    There is no need for a war on coal . We could have green house gases back to pre-industrial levels

    interesting little loophole in unread immigration bill

    really monkeys with buttons would be a lot cheaper then what we are paying congress now and most likely we would get a better job done

    Sad News. Crackpot Ed Markey Beats Gabriel Gomez in Massachusetts Senate Race

    Sad news.
    Now, Massachusetts has two communists in the US Senate.


    Toldya. Ironically, considering its history, the Northeast is probably the most sexist area of the country.

    • Constance says:

      I know it is really distasteful and shocking to see the sexism that east coast media spew as if it is normal. You do not see that sort of thing in Seattle local media and if you did northwest women would attack the media offices not merely accept it or try to join up with the sexist males and degrade other women.

  25. wmcb says:

    This made me all verklempt. I love my doggies.

  26. Selene Bahadoor needs to hire an internet specialist, post haste. I just looked her up minus Zimmerman and found out her phone number, where she works, that she’s a registered Democrat and signed up for speed dating last year. She also recently deleted her Facebook account.

    Not that I’m going to do anything with that information, but it does give some insight into her testimony & character.

  27. HELENK says:

    1–2–3 racist. oh wait a minute this guy is on the left so a white guy insulting a black supreme court justice is just fine. I forgot my bad

  29. yttik says:

    I’m praying for a fair trial in the Zimmerman case. I don’t know what it is about human nature that makes it so easy to label people a communist, racist, witch, murderer, whatever, and then condemn them in the court of public opinion without any evidence, but it’s an evil thing and our legal system is about the only way we have to stop it.

    • leslie says:

      As you all realize by now, I work in chicago and with the poor and for the most part, AA and Latino communities. This trial is NOT being discussed openly here. As I was waiting in line at the outpatient pharmacy Monday, an AA woman came in and began to loudly swear at the teevee in the waiting room. It was CNN coverage of the Zimmerman trial. She demanded to know, from no one at all, why “they” hadn’t hung that “n—– hating mofo” yet for “killing that sweet little boy, Trayvon” Thank goodness everyone ignored her. But ^this is fueling a lot of the fire here. Otherwise, it is peaceful here if you don’t count the 12 shootings each night and the murders and assaults and robberies, etc…
