One of the tidbits surrounding the Jeffery “Lubin'” Toobin Scandal pointed out by Woke Lola is that playing wargames is what caused Toobin’s privates to stand at attention. (You can’t spell “Lola” without “LOL”) Lola makes a couple points and asks an important question:

The context of the call is the real story here. They were “gaming” out the election by having “journalists” play specific individual or group roles. Someone played Trump and Biden, while others played “the far right” or the “Dem base.” So, as my husband said, they were all masturbating, but Jeffrey got caught in tape. I’d like to see that whole Zoom call, though. Why are “journalists” “gaming out” elections anyway? WTF? And why does Jeffrey Toobin have such poor coping skills? These people are categorically different than normal Americans, and it shows.

Let’s start with a more basic question: WTF is a wargame?


A wargame is a type of strategy game that simulates warfare realistically, as opposed to abstract strategy games such as chess. Wargaming may be played for recreation, to train military officers in the art of strategic thinking, or to study the nature of potential conflicts. Many wargames recreate specific historic battles, and can cover either whole wars, or any campaigns, battles, or lower-level engagements within them. Many simulate land combat, but there are wargames for naval and air combat as well.


Modern wargaming was invented in Prussia around the turn of the 19th-century, and eventually the Prussian military adopted wargames as a way of training their officers and developing doctrine. After Prussia defeated France in the Franco-Prussian War, wargaming was widely adopted by military officers in other countries. Civilian enthusiasts also played wargames for fun, but this was a niche hobby until the development of consumer electronic wargames in the 1990s.

Apparently, wargaming is the hottest thing in politics. You get a bunch of people together and then you have them divide up into teams (representing the real life campaigns, candidates, parties, etc.) and they kick around various scenarios.

Here is a real life example of a wargame:

Adding uncertainty to what is a routine exercise in vote counting (the 2000 contest in Florida being an exception) is this year’s urban unrest. An election night featuring competing claims of victory, confusion, and early calls by the media, only to be reversed on the receipt of newer data, may lead to post-election violence unlike any seen in more than 150 years.

Purportedly aiming to make sense of this fraught election year, in early August, the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) released a report suggesting that President Donald Trump would not likely leave office without an unprecedented struggle. The TIP, a self-proclaimed “bipartisan” group of some 100 people, was entirely composed of those firmly opposed to President Trump.

Their purpose wasn’t so much gaming out plausible post-election scenarios as to generate breathless propaganda suggesting that no matter the outcome, President Trump would refuse to leave the White House on Jan. 20, 2021, Inauguration Day.

Wargaming sounds like a good way to prepare for various eventualities, or for spotting flaws and weaknesses in strategies. But wargaming is not predictive nor will it tell you anything you don’t already know. So you can ask a million ‘what if’s’ surrounding Pennsylvania, like:

What if Trump wins a narrow victory”
What if Trump wins by a landslide?
What if it is too close to call?
What if Biden wins a narrow victory?
What if Biden wins by a landslide?

But all you are doing is making guesses about how people will react if one of those scenarios comes true. That’s how you come up with dumbass predictions like, “Trump won’t leave the White House if he loses.” Put a bunch of TDS-infested RINOs in a room and ask them to predict the election and none of them will predict a happy ending for Trump, or at least not one that doesn’t involve Putin and cheating.

That brings us back to the question: WTF were they doing?

Toobin is a pundit, not a journalist. He got his start in television doing legal commentary on the OJ Simpson trial. In sports, he would be the color commentator, not the play-by-play announcer. But I can see where considering the various possibilities could be of some utility to a pundit.

Remember Journolist? It was an effort to coordinate political strategy and messaging before going public with it. The problem is that journalists aren’t supposed to be on a team.

Journolist didn’t die. In a world where journalists followed ethical standards, Journolist founder Ezra Klein would have been defenestrated from journalism. But he got a buttload of money to start Vox, and Journolist went underground. There is more independent thought among members of a cult than there is in our news media.

Lola’s hubby was spot on with this:

So, as my husband said, they were all masturbating, but Jeffrey got caught in tape.

The news media is all one big TDS circle jerk.

    We played the board game Risk a lot when I was in college. Elliesdad was really good at it. I spent a couple of years working for the ROTC department at school. One of my jobs was to type up the class notes for the major who taught the military history course. He was a great source of help for me to learn how to hold my own against ED. ED and our son liked to play a computer game that included the Battle of Gettysburg. Rob was about 12 when we took him to Gettysburg. He knew the topography really well although it was his first time there. Playing competitive games that require both strategic and tactical thinking is good for kids. Maybe not for Jeffrey Toobin. He should stick to single player versions.

    Trump needs to talk about Hunter Biden EVERY time Joe’s mic is off. I don’t even care if the moderators interrupt. Also, might as well throw in a few Toobin comments at the same time.

    • Somebody says:

      I disagree strongly. If the opportunity presents itself for a good segue into the info on laptop go for it, but go after Joe and Joe’s role not Hunter.

      You have to realize a LOT of people have no idea about the laptop or any of what was found on it. If Trump just shouts Hunter, Hunter, Hunter all night people that don’t know will be like WTF? Does Trump think he’s running against Biden’s son? Sure Trump’s base will love it, but he has his base. Elections are about addition, not subtraction. If Trump brings up Hunter the moderator is going to pounce on him and probably say he’s spreading Russian disinformation. If he brings it up he’ll be debating the moderator, as if he won’t anyway.

      I’m not saying it shouldn’t come up, but he has to insert it where it makes sense. He also can’t just talk about the laptop all night, he has to make his case to the audience. He has to defend his record, promote his successes and lay out his vision for a second term. Half the debate or more will be covid, covid, covid. We’ll also hear how divisive he is, the fine people on both sides lie and denounce white supremacist bullshit.

      He has to strongly push back on racist claims and pivot to his record on AA employment, opportunity zones plus justice reform and his EO’s regarding police brutality and throw shade at Biden’s record. If he just talks about Hunter he leaves tarred with allegations thrown at him that he didn’t defend.

      He gets really defensive with covid criticism, I hope he’s worked on his responses. The “plan” Biden put out is BS, he’s done everything on it well before anyone suggested it. Biden was in charge of H1N1 which thankfully wasn’t as deadly, but infected 60 million plus. Calmly point that out, if it had been covid millions would have died. Tout his early travel restrictions, but most of all throw Joe’s criticism back in his face.

      Throw in his face bare cupboards, decades of offshoring supply line and pharmaceuticals to China which Joe was directly complicit in. It weakened us and made us vulnerable. But the most important thing, the thing I have yet to see him do is to defend Americans. When Joe is all snarky about covid sure he’s criticizing Trump and his administration but more than that he’s criticizing Americans. American companies and workers that rolled up their sleeves and built ventilators. The people of Hickory, NC that fired up a mostly shuttered textile mill and made cotton. Garmet district workers in NYC that made gowns from that cotton. National guard that distributed them. Competitors like FedEx and UPS that worked together side by side, their employees that worked round the clock. Frontline doctors and nurses, on and on the list goes.

      The companies and the Americans that stepped up are truly an American story. They personify the American can do spirit. The assembly lines, the logistics all of it was and is a thing of beauty. That didn’t happen by itself, it was spearheaded out of the WH. But beyond that and more importantly, when they got the call Americans from all corners of this country, from different backgrounds with different political ideology rose to the occasion because that’s what Americans do.

      That’s apple pie, that’s morning in America, that’s flag waving. I’ve yet to see Trump or his people tout that. I’ve yet to see ads featuring it. He’s defensive whenever covid is mentioned, yet he and his administration led an impressive response despite what media constantly spews. Just once I’d like to see Trump not be defensive, not say we have the best tests, we test more, not talk about Fauci, blah, blah. Just once wrap himself in the flag trumpet the Americans that were part of the response. Throw it back in Joe and the media’s faces. Because when they criticize our response they are really criticizing thousands of Americans that rose to the challenge and left it all on the field. Trump is only one man, he didn’t make ventilators or tests, Americans did. Then he should thank all Americans that were part of it and demand Joe acknowledge and thank them. He should also add humble shout outs and thank yous to his rallies and by George make a morning in America ad.

      End of rant, off soap box……doesn’t matter won’t happen

      • taw46 says:

        Oh my, I wish you could sit down with Trump for one day. Because you are right, he needs to talk about and thank Americans. He does get defensive, and that is exactly what the left wants him to do.

        My relatives listen to MSNBC 24/7 and they don’t have a clue about what is on the laptop. Because it isn’t discussed. Just this morning I heard Joe talking about how racist Trump is, that is constant on MSNBC. Lies, lies, and more lies.

        PDJT, please listen to Somebody! (I still think he will win 11/3, if we can overcome the cheating.)

        • taw46 says:

          I think he has every right to get defensive, because of what has been done to him and his administration the last 4 years. But as you said, this debate is about adding votes.

        • Somebody says:

          Karl Rove whom I’m no fan of gave a succinct point by point defense of the left talking points on covid. It was on Martha McCallum show, it was very well done. I wish team Trump would watch it and copy it. Rove’s response would fit in the timeframe for a debate answer.

          Unfortunately it didn’t include a mention of the decades of offshoring, because it was Rove. It also didn’t give a shout out to the Americans that stepped up, but all in all Rove made one of the best arguments against the left and media talking points I’ve heard.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            When rove lets his brain work independently and he leaves the political jumbo jumbo at the door you can see why his advice was sought after. But so much of the time it is lost in a sea of misdirection and camouflage. .

      • Constance says:

        He needs to stomp on the moderator. When she starts in say “voters don’t tune in to hear the hear the moderator push your narrative, I’d like to speak to the topic”, “I’m speaking!, I’m speaking!” and bring a recording of the whole “fine people” quote and play it. Then ask “was that unclear, I denounce white supremacy, did you process that this time?” But what about Biden speaking at the funeral of the KKK senator, do you plan to ask him if he is now against white supremacy?” The next day when media tries to call him out for sexist behavior towards the moderator just say “it is not sexist to expect women to behave in a professional manner.”

National Hug a Liberal Day? Anniversary of the founding of Planned Parenthood? The possibilities are endless. The Dems would have found SOME reason to be outraged about the date no matter what, IMHO.

  18. lyn5 says:

    Donald Trump, as he was starting his presidential run, knelt down and prayed. And he said:

    And the Lord said in return:
    “Hold My beer and watch this.”

  19. jadzia1971 says:

    More weird conversations with Europeans about Trump and the election:

    *Chilean ex, came here as a refugee a LONG LONG time ago because his father was on Allende’s side. LOVES LOVES LOVES him some Trump because businessman and his stance on immigration. Huh?

    *French friend, fancy executive, wears stylish scarves, yet is straight. Has been telling me for two years that he HAAAAATES Trump. At dinner last night he said well, Trump lowered unemployment and did all these great things, but he’s just “not presidential,” like Macron, who he wishes would be more like Trump and put France first. This friend is an educated person who likely took a logic course at some point in his life. At least he was willing to LISTEN, although it’s clear that his mind isn’t going to be changed.

    *Muslim bf, from Morocco but has been a French citizen for longer than I have. Again, LOVES LOVES LOVES him some Trump because businessman and, he informed me the other day, because the USA has been having a lot fewer Islamic terrorist attacks (things like the nightclub shooting) since Trump was elected.

    When I listen to RFI (national mainstream radio news station), they are more fair in their coverage of the election than I would have expected. Yet the average person here seems to think that most Europeans hate Trump.

They were able to come back but it took months to get used to letting the toothBrush do the work. She also said to avoid whitening toothpaste at my age. She said its like using comet.

      I started trying to avoid google right around 2000. It was clear even then that they had decided to move into darkness. After I tried to uninstall Chrome from my bosses computer because it was causing problem and found not where there numerous hoops and a mine field to get the darn thing off the computer . but the uninstall still left little pieces behind and they kept popping up with boxes asking me to explain why it was not wanted. Finally found a tool at a geek site to get every last bit of that horror removed. They have also worked to kill off competitors.

      I am surprised my favorite duck duck is still swimming. If not I use bing.

      I would urge caution with some of these “reports”, which are actually rumors.

      When there is damning info a common tactic is to float your own damning info. Then you disprove the info you floated to cast doubt on the other damning info. It muddies the waters and causes some to tune out and some to disbelieve everything.

      Rudy, Bannon or the NYP have released anything else. They supposedly are today or tomorrow. All these swirling rumors since the initial release may be chaff and countermeasures, I view them with a skeptical eye.

    As a science teacher, my classroom was a lab. There was a long raised height table across the front of the room. My chair was a stool. From my “perch” I had a bird’s eye view under all of the kids’ desks. Not every 13 year old girl has mastered the fine art of how to sit in a short skirt without broadcasting the color of her panties. No one ever did a “Sharon Stone”, but I had a lot of requests from my male colleagues to say something about it to the girls. Thirteen year old boys sometimes went “fishing” under their desks. I had a bird’s eye view of that, too. When I asked my young male colleaugues to reciprocate and talk to them, their response was I was somebody’s mother so I’d be a better choice to do it. My response was to slip a bathroom pass down on the boy’s desk. It was embarrassing to them because while I said nothing, most of the kids caught on.

    This Jeffrey Toobin thing smacks of middle school boy behavior to me. Ann Althouse asked how this would be handled differently if the person caught on camera masturbating was a woman. I’m trying to imagine that scenario happening. I can imagine a woman deliberately doing a strip for the camera or maybe a legitimate wardrobe malfunction, but while I had many male students pleasure themselves during class, I never caught one of the girls.

    • Somebody says:

      I knew a woman that might be a Toobin candidate 😏 She did a Sharon Stone in front of my husband, her husband (now ex-husband) and me. They visited us once and that was enough🙄 She also walked around in a towel and pulled it down to show off her tan line to my husband, as well as her very large breasts.

      Apparently she was quite the exhibitionist. Her husband would have co-workers over to play pool sometimes. He told me multiple times she chose to shower in the basement bathroom and would forget her towel🙄 As I said they’re divorced, I was shocked to hear the news🙄 We lost touch decades ago, but I hear he remarried. I hope he’s happy, he was a really nice guy. Dead ringer for John Cusack.

      Funny thing she was a beautiful woman, like Melania beautiful. She was built like a barbie doll, thin with enormous breasts. Yet she was so insecure or something. She always wanted to be the center of attention at least when it came to men. She always wanted to be wanted. She wanted to be told she was pretty, etc. I saw it as insecurity, maybe it was narcissism?

      I don’t know I was young in my mid 20’s, at the time I just thought she was whack. I mean, who does that? I did like him though, he was a nice guy. She was a bitch, a high maintenance bitch. She was forever making him grovel, it was disgusting.

      So I do believe I know at least one female that would Toobin. She probably loves the internet age, maybe she’s already a soft porn YouTube star. Is it untoward of me to hope her big tits knock her knees now? 🤭

Hit Joe Biden HARD with taxes, defund police, border security, HUNTER, Obamacare LIES and the rise in prices and no keep doctors, and so on and so forth. Trump needs to talk about what is REALLY going on in BLUE STATES re: jobs, exodus, horrible dem. leadership. He needs to FOCUS on his success and delineate them ONE BY ONE slowly and with emphasis on Economy, jobs and WORLD SAFETY. He needs to talk about middle east and his triple Nobel Peace Prize Nomination. Since they said there would be NO interrupting he could use this time to address important issues and ALL of America would hear him. He should be firm and polite but not back down. I love this man so much my heart cries with pride and appreciation. GOD BLESS Donald J. Trump, his family, this country and all people and please send assholes to hell sooner than later thank you 🙂

It feels like they want to end small businesses. There is an independent spirit that individual stores hold which does not gel with dims.i know of at least 3that have decided its time to close. One was a handmade candy store. It was pricy but it made chocolate covered pretzel ice cream cones. Heaven. They are done. You have to park blocks away to get there and walk. City Hall is killing all the businesses in an almost ten block area to put in crosswalks . it’s completely shut down. Why cobble stone walkways. It’s not a quaint village in New England or Long Island. It’s a congested suburb. You shut down half the city to put in a silly aesthetic. I wonder how snow plows will deal? And how can it take 9 weeks to install? All i see is crippled mom and pop stores. I find it hard to believe that no one in local government thought mid endless pandemic let’snotshut down all traffic in the heart of the borough. I cannot fathom why any planner would even want brick crossways on a major paved road. Won’t they respond differently with changing weather?

      Follow the money. What contractor is doing the job and making the money to put in the crosswalks?.

      Don’t get me started on cobblestones.

      OK, I’m getting started. They are SO FUCKING DANGEROUS if you wear shoes that aren’t flat (and yeah, I’m addicted to high heels). Especially in wet weather. I have wiped out numerous times on the cobblestone in my town. Always a dignified look!

    RCP has just flipped OH to Trump.
    (I guess Biden’s statement that he’s considering Kasich for a cabinet post boomeranged,)

    • DandyTIger says:

      Ha, the analysts and polls that were right in 2016 has had Trump ahead by 5-10 points for a couple of months. You can tell who the suppression polls are by how they “narrow” as we get closer. No one is changing their minds or just deciding, so if the numbers change, it’s been fake up to that point.

    The Democrats are going to boycott the Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Amy Coney Barrett. That will deny the committee a quorum. Apparently, the majority can use a different Senate rule to pass her out of committee for a full vote of the Senate, but they need every Republican on the committee to support it. Is Ben Sasse going to be a jerk? I think everyone else will get on board.

    I just looked up Joe Allen on Restaurant Row in NYC. It is legendary pre and post theater. It was tables cramped together. It sold burgers, liver and onions, meatloaf. Nothing fancy and because it was in the theater district no substitutions ever on anything. The entire place got up at once to see a Broadway show. The kitchen had to pump out food fast as most people came in around the same time. I hear if you are in Paris you go to Joe Allen Paris if you crave an American burger. There is also a store in Covent Gardens, London. It was an absolute privledge to work therein my early 20s. Joe is a unique man. He opened his place over 50 years ago. It was then mostly a bar. He had friends that got off Broadway gigs making next to nothing. He let them run tabs. Those people still just sign checks. They have names like AlPacino. There is a flop wall. Broadway shows that closed in under a week. Celebrities flock there. It is super basic. You did not get to taste wine no matter the price. It got plopped down on the table and you had to do your own pouring. It was so NYC because everything was fast, fast, fast. Hundredsof people were all seeing a show. It wasan amazing place to work. I learned so much from Joe.i a kid from a steel town delivered magnums of yellow label on opening night to the world’s biggest stars. He saw in me then someone who he could carry on his tradition. Joe would, back then fall into the dumpster next door from his apartment upstairs. Joe dated the likes of Laureen Bacall. He was a businessman. I think kinda like Trump. itwas 199 something. One of the waiters had spent his life as a photographer traveling. It wasthe 90s. He loved unsafesex in Peru. He decided not to try the things like AZT or whatever AIDS drug was. He decided to die. He was estranged from family and had gone into hospice. He had worked off and on for Joe for almost 20 years. Mr. Allen put up his familyfor the entire time this young man died. There was no cost for any meals and they stayed in the apartment upstairs.
    Joe taught me so much, mostly he taught me about how to make money I did the books. I looked at website for NY I can run the figures. I actually did the paper work. He owns the building but 25% can not pay the bills. I have owned a bar andheld interests in many. You cannot surviveon 25%. I did the biz for almost 30 years. Joe may stay afloat because he will eat a loss, but for how long? It makes no sense allowing a restaurant to operate at 25%. I have worked in hospitality since high school. You cannot pay your bills on 1/4th capacity.

    Remember when the SDNY arrested Steve Bannon over “Build the Wall”? They must have had some idea Bannon was planning something. He must be just laughing his ass off dripping this story out.

    • Somebody says:

      You hit the nail on the head. I read that Giuliani called Bannon and asked for his help. Bannon said sure I’m meeting up with this other guy but I’ll leave early and come to your office first. He spent 3 days I think it was working with Rudy going through hard drive. He was going to make some calls and put a team together when he got back from his meeting on the yacht.

      He apparently had been very guarded with info about his meet up with the guy on the yacht, but had mentioned it to Rudy on the phone when Rudy called asking for his help. The article I read said it was surmised that Rudy is under surveillance for FARA it is thought, so the feds got the tip on Bannon listening in on Rudy. If they were about to arrest Bannon I’d think it is just as easy to assume he was under surveillance. I’m guessing they both are.

      Clearly they were not deterred by the tactics. It might have delayed them a bit. The headlines on Bannon might have scared off some of the people he was hoping to bring on the team, but they moved forward and yes I’m sure he’s loving it🤣

      Speaking of the whole we build the wall arrests, that Brian Koflage guy in his charging documents they say he extorted money to build a fancy house. The guy is a triple amputee, the fancy house he owns was built by tunnels to towers and given to Koflage several years ago before we build the wall was even formed. There was some other crazy stuff too, I can’t remember it all, but some of the “extravagant” things they put in the charging papers were provided by the VA, because he’s a veteran, a triple amputee.

      There well may be questionable things in those charges filed. The article I read was pro Koflage. He’ll have his day in court, but there is no excuse to claim he stole $ for a house provided by tunnel to towers or for medical aids provided by the VA. The SDNY didn’t make an oopsie, they wanted to smear him and bully him. When arrested he was asleep, they wouldn’t allow him to put on his prosthetics, nor would they help him. He had to belly crawl to the car, since he only has one arm they couldn’t cuff him. I’m sure they would have if they could, bastards.

      • Constance says:

        Very interesting. I give money to “We Built The Wall” they were ready to start building two more sections of wall right when they arrested Brian and Bannon. As far as I know they haven’t started on those two sections yet. But then WBTW always keeps their operations as secret as possible as long as possible. They build on private property and they pick the top 10 smuggling routes and block them off. They have had to have large groups of heavily armed security while they build and they have been shot at repeatedly while setting up the wall. So it is fairly obvious that these next to wall plans threaten some big time cartel bribes in our government. I would have expected state Democrat politicians to come after WBTW but the fact that it was the Feds usingthe SDNY shows how high up the cartel bribes are going. Seriously when Trump wins he needs to mover the DOJ and FBI to South Dakota.

        That “mingling with the enemy” automatically discredits whatever he says- regardless of the research or statistics. When I brought up HCQ research and data with my illustrious bil, he actually ignored the information and said, “You sound like a Trump apologist”. And completely disregarded anything that might have presented an informed argument. That is how my family deals with information that is contrary to their beliefs.

    Why would a democrat bother to campaign in Philly? The party owns the votes there. Remember how obummer beat the butcher of Benghazi. Voter fraud is rampant there. 106% often vote there.
    It is the rest of the state that will decide. Biden keeps running ads that seem stolen from 2016 Trump. Building back Better. I am the only one I know in my family who has taken a severe hit. Mine were investments in restaurants that I may never see a dime from again. Covid response has killed small business, but it has not really hit the big money. My siblings are doing better. My sister in law is in heaven working from home. She makes crazy money as head of Human Resources for a big pharma company. Her dad was a coal miner and her mom cleaned houses for the wealthy. She got a masters from a state school. She loves telecommuting. She has all day to get her job done and only has to be present for arbitration. They built this big campus reflecting silicon valley. It had open tables and all kinds of campus life. She is an exec. She wades through high level applications. She takes complaints as an email. She never responds herself to a perceived sexist joke she sends it to legal. They have found that many if not most of the jobs can be done remotely. They can rent a large office they do not need a building. Most of the work was already done by field sales reps. A rep can send it all in by phone. She says her area of pharma never needs to return to fulltime onsight work.
    She hated Trump in 2016. Even with The Donald saying enough big pharma stealing from the taxpayer she sees in him a brighter future down the road.
