Overnight Open Thread


The Left is freaking out over this tweet from Ivanka, and not because Jared has his hand on her ass.

Apparently we have new rules that say the First Family to stay in seclusion or something whenever someone is suffering somewhere in the world.

There is always something bad happening somewhere in the world, but that never stopped Barack and Michelle from throwing fancy parties at the White House, or from playing golf, vacationing, or going to fundraisers.

Meanwhile, as far as I can tell (cuz I ain’t watching) the Saggy Awards feature a competition to see who can make the most virtuous virtue signaling acceptance speech.

Then there is this from Buzzfeed’s SF Bureau chief:

    In the morning we can find out if anyone watched the scenes with the little yappy dogs. If comments in the last thread are any guide they will be lucky to have two people watching. The movies soung pretty boring and I wouldn’t pay five cents to watch them.

        http://www.honordiaries.com/blog/linda-sarsour-tries-silence-women-like/

        “Up until last week, I had never heard of Linda Sarsour, the controversial co-chair of the global women’s march. But then supporters of my charity (Karma Nirvana) shared their shock and outrage over Ms. Sarsour’s attacks on the film Honor Diaries, a film in which I feature and support wholeheartedly. When Honor Diaries was released in March 2014, Ms. Sarsour worked to discredit the film. She disseminated the hashtag #DisHonorDiaries and made disparaging comments about the film. Why would a women’s rights activist work to silence a film on women’s rights?”

    Ivanka looks gorgeous in that metallic brocade gown.

  3. Constance says:

    You know I’m thinking someone should start a petition to the NFL and FOX telling them we don’t want a Hollywood anti Trump message crammed up our asses during the Superbowl. That would shock the hell out of the media and I’m sure that Gaga has some political message planned. It’s time they respect the millions of Trump voters and STFU and quit blocking traffic.

  4. Dora says:

    It’s a beautiful picture. She looks gorgeous. So does he, actually.

    All those complainers are just fat ugly people drooling with envy.

    That’s my opinion and I’m not going to change it. 🙂

    • Most people can look pretty good when they get fixed up. Ivanka is one of the lucky few who just looks gorgeous all the time. And she’s damn smart too.

    • votermom says:

      she does look always beautiful BUT I do not like either outfit.

      The gown material looks like tin foil and Jared’s jacket makes him look gawkishly tall and skinny.

      • Lulu says:

        They both frequently look exhausted. And they have three little kids. So that makes me like them more. LOL. I don’t particularly like her clothes but she wears them well. Ivana dresses badly (in my opinion) too so there is that.

        • Constance says:

          She has a fashion brand to promote. Also she is really tall, some of her clothes look too short proportion wise, but she has a great figure so no real worries. Maybe she is still nursing the baby because sometimes her tops look snug. It’s hard to wear fitted clothes when nursing. I remember wearing nothing but sweat shirts that zipped up the front or for “dressy occasions” tops with smocking or gathering to facilitate expansion. But at the time I was poor and at no point in my life has anyone looked to me as a fashion icon.

    US-UK Trade Talks To Begin Immediately In Defiance Of EU Rules: What’s Trump Up To?

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-29/us-uk-trade-talks-begin-immediately-defiance-eu-rules-whats-trump

  6. Dora says:

  7. This is the kind of #fakenews story that pisses me off. The whole thing is speculative – they aren’t talking about what Trump did, just what he might do.

    • When and where are they gonna learn professionalism?

    • Now, look, I’m personally still leery of Trump. I’m willing to give him time to see what he will do. But, as I keep arguing on Twitter and in comments at other sites, if you think Trump is winging it, if you think he doesn’t know what he’s doing, if you’re, to use a George Bush word, missunderestimating him, then you’ve already lost. We saw this during the primaries, the general election, and since Trump won. You can bet that Trump, as a long time businessman, has action plans out the wazoo. You know the old saying about the Pentagon having plans to attack Canada? You can bet that Trump has deep plans.
      And one of the action plans is probably entitled “How To F*ck With The Media.” When Trumpites said that “the media was on the ballot”, I argued that they weren’t, that Trump needed to focus more on Hillary and Democrats. I was wrong.
      We all know that the Media Industrial Complex treats Republicans different from Democrats. We all knew that they would treat Trump in a certain way. Most of us on the Right have been calling for elected Republicans and their people to fight back against the news media and the Democrats. They rarely did. Under Bush 43, they decided not to discuss the constant personal attacks, and, forgot to defend their own policies.
      Well, under Trump, he’s set the tone to be combative. He and his people are free to attack back. There are times that they might go too far, but, what they end up doing is making the media look ultra-partisan. The media brings up the inauguration attendance in an attempt to weaken Trump. Team Trump fights back. Then the media starts whining about this issue, which they created, and wonders why we’re still talking about it (as they continue talking about it.)
      As Glenn Reynolds noted, he’s playing them. He’s gaslighting them. GOP figures are damned if they do, damned if they don’t. So, rather than be cowed, they should fight back. Trump is fighting back. He has the Credentialed Media spinning in circles, acting like ankle biters.
      As far as what Fred Hiatt wants, it won’t happen. Partisanship and activism is too embedded in the Credentialed Media, especially those in positions of power.

      • Lulu says:

        If this is what that old Hyatt is floating they are thinking about trying to bamboozle. I don’t think most of the media are smart enough or disciplined enough to do it. Bezos must be complaining about costs and a change in tactics since their old media business model is in the toilet. Paying a bunch of hair on fire goobers that fewer and fewer read, and new media is ridiculing, is getting too costly for slave wage paying Bezos. WaPo is turning into Bezos’ money pit.

  8. Lulu says:

    Looking around the inter-tubes this morning, I’m sensing some burnout from the outrage machine. Just a slight shift but they are wearing themselves out. While the Soros employees are still ginning it up, the mobs are getting kind of exhausted. Said mobs are not really known in their private lives for hard work, focus, and stick to it discipline. The “media” is basically running into a brick wall with a honey badger behind it. They are bashing their heads into the wall and then hearing “Oh funny, I don’t give a shit” from the Trump administration.

    Virtue signalling isn’t working any more. The racist trope was used, overused, and worn out by Obama. It did not work in the presidential election. Neither did “misogynist!”. And Mexico and illegal Hispanic aliens are going to be hog-tied very soon. The Muslim stuff is getting very old. The public has been bombarded with their endless problems since forever with wars, sectarian violence, terrorism directed at us, oil crap, etc. Always outraged and huffy about something the sympathy is petering out for Muslims. In a country that can assimilate any group, Muslims stand out as the ones who can’t or won’t. Now they are resisting being vetted like everyone else. People who hate US citizens are siding with Muslims who want to enter at will to blow us up. How very odd. And unsympathetic. And frankly psychotic. Like the US senator who is tweeting her outragey support for illegals and refugees from a state that went Trump +35% who is up for reelection in 2018.

    Trump told the Saudi king to promise to start paying for his mess. Jihadist-Salafism, a transnational religious-political ideology based on a belief in “physical” jihadism and the Salafi movement of returning to what adherents believe to be true Sunni Islam, comes from Saudi Arabia and they need to pay for their export since we don’t need their oil any more and the oil thieves in the US are out of power at least for the next four years. Trump is going to use US oil production to beggar them if they don’t along with Russia.

    • Trump is baiting them. The Left is gonna collapse from outrage fatigue.

      • Lulu says:

        They have a mania and he has dealt with maniacs before. They wear themselves out. The anti-Trumpers are lazy butts, spoiled, and undisciplined personally (and their personality disorders are showing) and it is becoming a spectacle of true nuttiness. I always think of my grandmother’s saying when she had purposely infuriated someone “they don’t know whether to shit or go blind”. It is a very effective tactic.

      • Constance says:

        I’m sick of the Left’s self indulgent outrage. I’m planning to lounge out with friends I haven’t seen in a long time during the Superbowl and if I hear one virtue signal or load of outrage on that broadcast I’m going ballistic. You know it’s going to happen. I don’t even care about football in fact I don’t know who is playing I just am intending to hang out, drink and eat and listening to yapping liberals isn’t going to happen.

        • Somebody says:

          The New England Patriots are playing the Atlanta Falcons.

          A superbowl party isn’t the place for politics in general, sports used to be immune from politics but some of the sportscasters and now the players have changed that…..for the worse IMO. It used to be no matter your background, your religious or political beliefs for a couple of hours you put all that aside and everybody cheered on their team. Liberals, conservatives, Christians, atheist, Muslims, Hindus, black, white, space aliens, none of that mattered during that game everybody came together and shared a common bond, enjoyed the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat. Quite frankly a superbowl party is not really the place for a lot of yapping period unless the yapping is in a room removed from the game……….football game etiquette 101.

          Many people who don’t care about football still enjoy the superbowl for the commercials or the halftime show. Lady Gaga is doing the halftime show

          • Constance says:

            Yeah Lady gaga is the one who will likely do the lib drama. Gag me. These folks live in West Seattle with the most stunning view of the city ever. I will be sitting on the outside on the deck, rain or shine, drinking margaritas. The game is usually over before the last half anyway, (unless the Seahawks are playing).

    Diud you know there is global chaos erupting all over the planet? That was the headline on Crap News Network this AM. I expect that governments are falling, war disease and famine are everywhere, etc etc. No, just some protests, here and there. But GLOBAL CHAOS people, global chaos.
    Also, latest that I read on the mosque shooting in Quebec was perpetrated by Muslims from a rival mosque, and not white supremacists, as initially reported. That could be wrong too, but who can depensddepensd on the news these days?

        • DeniseVB says:

          Miyam breastfed her kid til he was 4 or 5 because he wanted to. I’ve written her off as a lefty loon years ago.

          • Miranda says:

            I’ve heard of this from various hippie-crunchy types. Ew.

          • Somebody says:

            Breastfeeding longer is fairly normal in a lot of countries, but she was at the outer edge with her son it sounds like. In most countries where they breastfeed that long it’s due to necessity though.

            Age 4 or 5 is school age in most western countries. It’s quite normal in some western countries to breastfeed to 18 months to two years, but the only countries I know where it’s routine to breastfeed a child to school age are countries that are famine stricken. I remember an interview a couple of years ago about a woman in the UK that was still breastfeeding her kids and they were 7 or 8, to me that seems to indicate mom has an issue…….but what do I know?

          • votermom says:

            you gotta stop breastfeeding when the kid’s beard gets scratchy

          • Somebody says:

            Well it started out innocently enough, I was going to find and post the interview with that nutty woman from the UK. I had no idea that people, lots of people put up youtube videos of them breastfeeding, WTF? Oh and breastfeeding an older child, yep lots of that too……posted on youtube for goodness sakes.

            What is wrong with this generation? OMG I can’t unsee that, hell I can’t unsee the titles on the sidebar, no, just no. If your 12 or 18 year old son is still breastfeeding you both need mental help.

      • DeniseVB says:

        As long as BBT doesn’t go the full “Will and Grace”, when the entire cast reunited to make an anti-Trump video (I forget the fauxrage at the time), I’ll still watch the reruns when there’s nothing good on HGTV 😀

    Commentary: Don’t be fooled ­ protests and marches aren’t coming ‘out of nowhere’

        ^^^THIS^^^
        I have no problem with and in fact fully support real protests. I fully defend everyone’s 1st amendment rights, even if I think they are a douche bag. However, rioting is NOT protesting, also you do NOT have the right to block highways and such. Breaking windows, setting fires and looting is not a protest. Those are not peaceful assembly and protest, they’re riots.

        It is obvious to me that there exists within this country rent a mobs of protesters that show up with neatly printed signs, etc. Within those groups are people that sow violence, many of them anarchist. We need to start arresting these people and get them to roll over on who is financing them. Then we need to build a case and put all of the money men and the violence fomenters in prison.

      Radical Islamists(a political ideology) kill muslims (the religion) all the time. It’s probably why the peaceful muslims keep their mouths shut about condemning terrorism. Something at this mosque must’ve triggered the shooters. Will the media look into it or ignore it? 😉

In other words, do they really want the “native-born Islamic radical” problem that is causing so much trouble over here?
