    How…very unclever. Their ennui is showing what dullards they are.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I can’t figure out why Newsweak and Time are still a thing ? I was like a 30+ year subscriber to both of them before they went Obama Feral. I’m getting the same vibe from National Geographic (40+ yr subscriber), too much gorebal warming bullsh*t. And print media wonders why they’re losing money?

      • lateblum says:

        Exactly! I quit Nat Geo. a few yrs ago when I saw the continuous drum beating then.
        Sad. 😞

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I have not subscribed to any of them in years- However, I have noticed an uptick in promotional mailings from still existing paper magazines (e.g. National Geographic) begging me to come back. If they are digging though subscription lists from the 1990s – they have to be hurting,

      • 49erDweet says:

        They are ALL hurting. Some costs are down only because they’re printing just 15% of what they used to do. Ads are paying a much higher % of costs now. I see no recovery but they love beating dead horses.

      • Lulu says:

        Da Newz media, most of “culture” media, artz media, etc is deader than a doornail. As soon as they go lefty they die. No one wants to pay for their “enlightened” garbage. It is hooey. This is now sifting into “blogs”. When they go Never Trump, global climate shit, and assorted other nutter viewpoint they kill whatever it was they had that was interesting, informative or fun.

        An example: A Houston “decorating” blog that I had read for years because it was fun, had sourcing of stuff for sale, quirky, and not stuffy and then went gonzo Never-Trump although that had fuck-all to do with what she did. It exposed her as an idiot. Nasty, snotty, mean, and stupid. She went from a middling successful commercial enterprise to NOTHING. I told her to stop it. She was NOT a political commentator and she did not know what she was talking about. She went bananas. Now a year later she begs for readers because her husband is sick and she needs money. Tough shit! Cause and effect idiot. Go get a job selling sofas! And her ads/sponsors all abandoned her because she doesn’t have readers with any money.

        • Lulu says:

          Continued harangue: Politics and the “culture” of class sneering does not mix with commerce. As the months tick by, the sneerers are taking a hit economically. Target, Nordstroms, NFL, ESPN, and as mentioned above National Geographic. And Googley! Bing and DuckGoGo are pretty good. No one but freaks cares what you “elites” think. No one asked you for this but your cruddy little piss ant peon employees with jumped up ideas about their importance. Give us what we paid for. If not goodbye. And their ignorance and presumption is astounding. The facts are that the “sneering elite” are not numerous and don’t have enough money (most of them are aspiring elites anyway and don’t have a pot to piss in) to support and make economically viable much of anything. So keep on sneering and pooping your pants Salon as you can’t pay your rent in NYC, get chased into a slum, and dunned in eviction court. Cost/benefit shows you are not worth it.

          • swanspirit says:

            That is why I never never never make any reference n to any politics of any kind to my Airbnb guests. Not only is it completely inappropriate, it would mean death to my lusting.
            I have made one exception in three years, to a guest who is now an American citizen, but is a Coptic Christian from Egypt. And it was a blessing to have had him as a guest.

            PS. When a Coptic Christian from Egypt tells you B.Hussein Obama is a Muslim, he’s a Muslim.

        • Ann says:

          As a blogger, I gotta say that was pretty stupid on her part. You ALWAYS alienate someone when you bring politics into it. And that is just the readers … the brands no likie either.

          Heck, I have all political ads blocked on my site. You should have seen the threads in my publishing network’s group last year. The ones bitching about Trump ads were so darned smug! And they would go on-and-on about wanting only Hillary ads – and most of those people were FOOD BLOGGERS!! Wth does politics have to do with a recipe for guacamole? Just block all the darned political ads and keep your readers. Shesh

    • elliesmom says:

      I can’t imagine a scenario where I’d be in the middle of making guacamole and want to stop everything to do something very risky. Swap for a sharper knife? Add a ghost pepper? Get a bigger bowl?

      • Ann says:

        ha! I am not the only one with guacamole on the brain. I should have read down and used banana cake as an example. 😛

    has anyone heard that Paul Manafort was one of the wh leakers and the FBI raid was to find proof. I saw one article about on facebook, but can not find anything else. Not sure if it is a hoax or not

    • Somebody says:

      It has to be a hoax Helen, Manafort left the Trump campaign not long after the convention, well before election night. He hasn’t set foot in the Trump WH as far as I know, he certainly doesn’t have any kind of position there. So no, he’s definitely not a WH leaker.

    • Lulu says:

      Bolling was already very rich. He is a “retired” Wall Streeter. This was his second career and just for fun. Now they have smeared him but I’m not sure “they” realized he can afford to fight back. He is a strategic thinker and went after the weakest link who is an independent journalist like all Salon writers are. And Salon can’t pay their rent so that is a broke ass dead end and can’t pay writer guy’s legal bills for him.

  3. Good. People that drive in the wrong lane should be deported.

    • 1539days says:

      She was CAUGHT because she didn’t change lanes. She’s being deported because:
      She doesn’t have a license
      She crossed the border illegally
      She crossed the border illegally before and was deported.

      • Jadzia says:

        Thank you!!!

      • 49erDweet says:

        But the other way sounds SOOOOO much Trumpy-er.

      • Lulu says:

        The “lane change” is not a little thing. Not changing lanes with out a blinker stuff. She zoomed by a cop with someone pulled over and could have hit them by staying in the outside lane. DANGEROUS! Very reckless driving. She could have killed herself, the cop, the pulled over driver, her kids, everyone. Cops and people pulled over get hit all the time by assholes like this selfish law be-damned illegal alien. And she had already been deported once which is why she is on a one-way van to Matamoros. She can play bumper-cars down there.

    interesting take on the trump win

  9. Pfffffft.

    Well, here’s a guy who’ll never get laid again. 28 year old software engineer James Damore, incautiously wrote a memo complaining that Google, the place where he worked, had too many women in it.
    Yes, at 31% women, google is teaming with stressed out bitches and there is such a thing as too much diversity. Maybe it’s because they’re surrounded by 69% male assholes who like to interrupt them, demean their intelligence and steal their credit? Just a guess.
    Mr. Damore also said there’s not enough of a conservative voice at google. I know, we’re all playing our tiny violins.
    BTW, this guy was a graduate student in molecular and computational biology before he went to google. Normally, the more narcissistic and sociopathic elements among my former colleagues went to Wall Street to cash in big. Sounds like Damore just couldn’t cut it or didn’t even get an offer.
    But all’s well that ends well. Google fired him.
    That’ll learn them to tighten up their candidate screening.

  10. Playing it again, because this little girl is fucking awesome.

  12. Via Ace:

    Tuesday’s bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs — left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time….
    The Director of National Intelligence and Obama officials subsequently tried to dismiss Lamborn’s disclosure by claiming the DIA assessment was an outlier that did not reflect the views of the rest of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

    It was clear what Obama officials were doing in 2013. The DIA report represented inconvenient facts that threatened President Obama’s North Korea “strategic patience” policy — a policy to do nothing about North Korea and kick this problem down the road to the next president. Obama officials tried to downplay the DIA assessment to prevent it from being used to force the president to employ a more assertive North Korea policy.

    • lyn says:

      At least they aren’t commenting on Trump’s bowel movements. Yet.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Twitchy hasn’t been much fun since they went full Never Trump last year. Unless I missed the sarcasm and this was meant to be a media hit piece ? I guess I missed the media being verklempt over Biden taking AF2 home to Delaware every weekend, then sometimes fly back on Saturday to play golf with Obama, fly back to DE, then return to DC on Sunday?

      You can golf without being on vacation, Trump just so happens to have golf courses in some of his backyards. How it that different from taking a bike ride, hitting the gym or going for a jog?

So is grilled cheese sandwich, biscuits and ham, monkey bread, Welsh rarebit, croque monsier/madame, Hot Brown, hamburgers, hot dogs, pot pie, Cornish pastie, Natchitoches meat pie, poor boy, burrito, tacos, etc. Anything you can put on bread is a pizza. Onions on or in bread is good!

    I was talking to a drug counselor about the drug epidemic that is plaguing entire towns. She was a cankles supporter. I asked her if she can recall hillary ever mentioning it. All dims want to dobis increase spending for treatment. Not looking at causation.
    I asked her what she thought of Trump addressing it directly. She sees all rethugs as heartless and dims as angels. Every place I know that is over run is dim controlled.
    I said a fresh approach is needed.
    She was not aware that Trump’s brother drank himself to death. Her unfounded hate blinds her to any good Donald might do. She thinks he’s heartless.
    I do wish Sessions would drop marijuana prosecutions. Bigger fish to fry.

    • Lulu says:

      I think Sessions sees marijuana as the gateway or beginning for later addictions which are ruinous and kill people. I do too really. If it only stayed with an occasional joint would be one thing but it leads to dumb-assery pretty fast especially for young people. I have NO problem with medical marijuana but other than occasional use it is very bad news. It is self medication for other problems and makes people dumb(er) and lazy(ier) which in turn leads to other problems. And the louder the advocates claim it has no side effects the more I know it must have them since they get so agitated and freaked out.

      • mothy67 says:

        Kids think because a few states have legalized marijuana that there are now no ramifications. When we were going through custody my nephew told the judge it was okay because it was legal in many states. He’s not the brightest. ( custody is a done deal – he pushed and pushed until he had to take the MMPI. Did not fare very well) wakes and bakes. I believe when young kids self medicate for anxiety they never learn any other coping skills. Same thing with psychotropics. Adolescence is tough on everyone. You learn and hopefully grow if you are not lost in a fog.
        My issue with pot is that legalization will increase teens and preteen usage. The chemistry of the body changes so much during that time. I bet if you polled the Seattle homeless crowd you’d find a huge amount of pot abuse during early years.
        I smoked in college. Remember shoving towels under the door. I out grew it. I know adults who smoke to unwind.
        My issue with Sessions is not that I don’t agree with him, but that he seems anachronistic. He seems to me to be taking a 1950’s approach. A 20 year old during the summer of love is now 70. No one is shocked by a joint. Right or wrong going after recreational users to me seems petty. A criminal record? Is there any benefit to incarceration for a user? Feel that long term treatment would be cheaper and more effective. On paper agree with Sessions I just don’t see that the approach works.

        • John Denney says:

          I’ve known people who smoked pot their entire lives and yet were very successful professionally.
          They only smoked in the evening after work. They were very sharp people and knew that when stoned, about the only equipment they should be operating is the stereo.
          Prison or rehab for them would be nonsense, like prison or rehab for a lawyer having a scotch at the end of the day.

      • jenlyntx says:

        ABSOLUTELY. Hate to rain on Clown’s parade but pot is not harmless not in least. Ever seen someone operating motor vehicle, flying plane, driving car, answering 911 calls, etc., etc on pot. DEATH. Besides for fact we don’t need people MORE stupid we need people LESS stupid. I say stick with laughter, liquor (yes yes in moderation), and chocolate for releases 🙂

      • Constance says:

        I think alcohol or cigarettes are the gateway drugs. Pot is a step or two into the chain. And dependency doesn’t happen in everyone who uses pot or alcohol it is a certain mindset but not the mindset of most users.

    • lyn says:

      My hubby’s sister pays $1,500 a month in property taxes. She lives in Queen Anne.

      • Jadzia says:

        I lived in Queen Anne in 2000-2001 and even then it was crazy. It was right before the dot-com bubble burst. Landlords were taking BIDS for apartments. I would’ve noped right out of Seattle then and there if I hadn’t moved there for a (one-year) clerkship. My primary memory of the place is being so lonely.

      • Constance says:

        I paid $9000. in property tax this year and have received notice that it will go up next year. I live in a 4 bedroom 3 bath 1948 brick rambler which is valued at $1,200,000. I’m not making that up! My kitchen is old and trashed, one of the bathrooms I call the diarrhea bath as no one who wasn’t desperate would use it. So yeah, Seattle is going nuts. Right now the city council is debating letting self contained RVs park anywhere in the city. (I know several people who plan to park Rv’s in close in neighborhoods and Airbnb them as soon as this policy begins) The people who run the city are so damn dumb they bitch that landlords are causing higher rents but they can’t fathom that the ever increasing property tax and city owned utilities are causing rents to increase.

    • helenk3 says:

      as most of you know I have visited many cities in the US through my work with the RR. Seattle was the only city where I did not feel safe. No matter where you went swarms of teenagers were begging for money. They all had the same story they were looking for money to get home. I finally took one to the RR station and bought him a ticket to get home. The ticket agent held the ticket until train time. The kid came back with a friend trying to get the money for the ticket. The agent called me at my office and told me what happened and sent the money to me. He said he wished more people would do what I did instead of giving them money.

      • Jadzia says:

        How did you find Portland? I found the two cities about the same in terms of the threatening-transients factor.

        • helenk3 says:

          yes there were the same problems but it seemed worse in Seattle. I watched a crowd cheering when a cop was hit by a car. Would never want to live there

    • Lulu says:

      Seattle is a port. Port cities always have problems. 1) Lots of money, 2) Lots of sleaze, vice, and corruption 3) they think they are cosmopolitan but really they just have sailors and traders and con-men/thieves/parasites 4) the bigger they get the worse the problems become 5) they go to shit 6) See New Orleans or Marseilles or Liverpool which are shit-holes 7) the harbor silts up or blows away or sinks and they disappear and no one really misses them and another one is built.

    • elliesmom says:

      I’ve only spent a few days in Seattle. What I remember was all of the people standing in front of places I wanted to go or blocking street corners where I needed to cross picketing because they were “under-paid and not appreciated”. We were in a cab, and we passed a parking lot with a $5/park all-day sign. I said, “Wow!”, and the cabby said, “You’re right! Parking costs in the city are way too high.” When I stopped laughing, I told him $20/day in Boston is a bargain.

        Expect homeless camps and panhandlers.

        • Constance says:

          The Dems who run the city seem to think of homeless and pan handlers and other feral people as their pets. They don’t give over their own money to support these people but in typical Democrat mindset they think they are virtuous because they want to tax everyone and support their pets with other peoples hard earned money. I support donating to the poor but give your own money and don’t make it compulsory by making donation a tax.

      • Constance says:

        We also currently have the worst smog anywhere in the country because of the wildfires in British Columbia. We haven’t had any rain in 53 days and everything that someone hasn’t watered is crispy looking. We might get lucky and get some fresh air flow by Friday night.

    • Constance says:

      Wow, that is a great summation of what is going on here. Kennedy left off any mention of our gay mayor who has been accused of paying for sex with young drug addicted men he was supposed to be mentoring. But it isn’t PC to talk about that.

      • mothy67 says:

        Was Charlie Royer a good mayor? I was friends with his niece in college and he was painted as a demi god. Did he start the spiral?

        • Constance says:

          Royer was a long time ago back in the days when Democrats were still competent and cared about working people. I seem to remember him as a good mayor.

        • Lulu says:

          He is obviously mad. It reaches a point where you cannot ignore the dangerous loon any longer because they are a hazard to others. The various defenders in the US are the same people who say don’t bother the guy going down the street cursing and hitting his head against the side walk because everyone should be free to do whatever they want. Or something. They never see a threat because it has been programmed out of them by nature or education or something. I think they are just immune to human suffering while claiming to prevent it.

    REPORT: Andrew Cuomo Risks NYC Blackouts By Shutting Down Nuclear Plant, Fracking

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is risking the stability of New York City’s electrical grid by closing a nearby nuclear plant that supplies a quarter of the city’s total electricity, according to a report from the Manhattan Institute.

    The closure is part of a Cuomo administration initiative to provide half of New York state’s electricity through renewables by 2030.

    Al Gore: Trump ‘inherited a very dangerous situation’ in North Korea

  41. Somebody says:

    A little story I’m sure some of you ladies can relate to. This past weekend I found a pair of capris on clearance for a song. They were a super soft denim, the color was soft coral, little embellishments on the back pockets. I bought them thinking surely something in my closet will match them……I only paid like $7 for them.

    This morning I had to take my daughter to the orthodontist, so I decided to wear my new capris. I pulled out several different tops……close but not quite. Then eureka! Near the back of the closet was a shirt I’d gotten on clearance who knows when that is multi-colored sort of a a watercolor looking shirt. Damn me if it didn’t have the exact color of coral in it…..#winning! The combo looked great together and they both fit me nicely. Shoes, shoes…….oh wait…..I remember buying a pair of sandals last summer that I thought would match something and they didn’t……but maybe….OMG, perfect match…..#winning!! OK, I know I have a couple pairs of earrings that will match, which ones, oh look a bracelet…..let me grab this purse…..OMG, I am totally all put together!!!

    Just as we were ready to go out the door, I grabbed the younger two grandbabies shoes. I had the youngest sit in a chair and I turned my husband’s computer chair around to sit in it and put her shoes on. I sat down and got one shoe on when it dawned on me that my ass was wet, WTF? The middle grandchild took off in a hurry, sure enough she had an accident and pissed the chair and there I sat in a pool of piss in my nice put together outfit, FML!

    I quickly changed into jeans and a tee shirt, cleaned up the middle grandchild and changed her, then cleaned the chair. We barely made it to the appointment.

    By the time I’m not at risk from sitting in someone else’s pee, I’ll probably be wetting my own pants!
