RG, he said he was "leaning strong Biden" on Twitter. Posted by: James D. | September 02, 2020 at 09:38 AM * * * * * Ummmmmmmmmmm . . . you cannot be serious. In fact, I don't believe that. Anyway, let me know if y'all can click this link and see the image of my offending tweet (thanks for the effort, Porchlight). https://kekpe.pe/i/5f4fa81b1b33f.jpg sbw, around 1 p.m. I'm supposedly off suspension. Hopefully no one has been perpetrating as the world famous RG !!!
Did PhotoBucket stop allowing free use of their site to post a photo to the web? Anyway, the link included in my tweet goes to this thread (if it is still there -- I've already deleted my tweet but saved an image of it; if I find a way to post it here I will do so): https://twitter.com/pilartx/status/1294324538440810496 For all I know, this woman who tweets at that address may have been suspended too.
I've certainly noticed his somewhat balanced skepticism on Twitter. I have no problem with that. We all need to keep a healthy skepticism, even when a heavy Trump partisan. And I do consider myself a *heavy* Trump partisan. But I never thought of him as a Never Trumper. Even though I do remember multiple curious comments in multiple topics that struck me as conclusory. Anyway, kudos -- still -- to TM for his efforts, this site, and our shared community.
But in the meantime, did I read an earlier comment correctly: y'all think TM is a NeverTrumper !?!
I'm multitasking this morning but waiting to try and get a photo positioned so I can post my "offending" comment. I'm not experienced with running afoul of their algorithm but I think it could be that *my* comment wasn't the problem. It could be they flagged what they thought was a problematic comment in a thread I either started or participated in, I simply don't know and don't much care.
Test. Twitter has suspended me for a few hours so I'm taking that as a sign I haven't spent enough time lately with my JOM family. But since I log on here via my Twitter account, time to see if that process still works. If y'all can see this, I'm good to go. Narciso, please send me an eMail addressing your prior submission to me and I promise I will hunt it down this morning.
Good morning, good people. What a glorious day. The best day after a political convention ever !!! It had to be, given it follows the best political convention ever. Four straight days of knockout punches. I'm honestly blown away by how well they did.

Let freedom ring with prodigious respect for Jeff Sessions, CH! * * * Don't think so. You claimed that Sessions was a key ingredient in taking down the deep state and DJT was in his corner 100% despite his recusal. That last statement is obviously not true and the first one's on a shaky foundation. Ultimately I wanted for Sessions to be vindicated but that hasn't happened as Trump is openly campaigning for his primary opponent. I don't know how more obvious it could be that DJT wasn't pleased with his performance as Attorney General. It was and is a huge job and being in that den of dawdlers called the US Senate for a long time wasn't the best job training. Posted by: Captain Hate | July 04, 2020 at 03:53 PM No, what I recall claiming about Sessions is that he was an outstanding Attorney General and he protected President Trump from a damn good trap that had been set -- even if the Prez doesn't know how to publicly acknowledge that or, for strategic reasons, doesn't *want* to publicly say so. To me, he unquestionably protected 45 from that trap. Anyone claiming otherwise necessarily dismisses the tremendous level of opposition to Trump that Sessions had to deal with. Opposition that CONTINUES to reveal itself even at this late date. It's remarkably foolish to do so when not only Ed Meese has acknowledged how good Sessions was, so has Mike Mukasey and our current A.G. William Barr. That's three respected names. Just wondering, can you read and give *them* some credence CH? GUS ??? [1] Ed Meese, January 30, 2018 Jeff Sessions is the most underrated member of the Trump administration The Attorney General has returned law and order to the Department of Justice — and the United States. https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2018/01/30/jeff-sessions-most-underrated-member-trump-administration-edwin-meese-column/1074410001/ [2] Hans A. von Spakovsky, November 13, 2018 The Legacy of Jeff Sessions https://www.heritage.org/crime-and-justice/commentary/the-legacy-jeff-sessions * * * But, hey . . . y'all know better. I mean, he was just a squish, right GUS? Good grief.

New thread
Still waiting for those magic three words from RG on Jeff Sessions. Isn't hubris a sin? Definitely a human failure of character. Posted by: Captain Hate | July 04, 2020 at 10:39 AM So, the Sessions question has been settled? Really? What, pray tell, *is* the question that has been settled ??? Maybe we're talking past one another.
The genius was to take the supposed strength of the opposition — demeaning of representations of great Americans — and turn it against them. More genius to salvage schooling from public curricula and shatter misrepresentations of the media lens. Being "offended" by the past is no longer the weapon Leftist activists and politicians hoped to use against America. Posted by: sbwaters | July 04, 2020 at 09:19 AM Agree 100% -- and your brilliant idea about multiple gardens around the country is right on the money!
So . . . where do y'all think that new Statuary Garden should be placed? I'm very biased, of course, but I say it should go somewhere in the Orlando area. Already the family vacation center of the nation and drawing the most visitors, we should make that teaching tool available to the masses where they already go.
Thanks, henry. Egotistically speaking, I agrees ;-) I'm not sure if this link will work but if it does -- for those here who haven't met this Florida Boy -- y'all can hear my voice: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TdJiKTimLLeyeyEuV11xVvXQ_r4Ppri1/view?usp=sharing Family and friends have been very positive. My target is September. I plan to get aggressive in my search for VoiceOver work around that time but I won't be crushed if it never happens.
Catsmeat! Yeah, I know. But that doesn't lessen my frustration. I saw a video done by Scott Adams today. Interesting discussion but he said the debate is over, the science is conclusive, masks unquestionably help. Wut ??? But this explains why the President has to prudentially address the crazy issue of masks. No one has yet explained to me how it is Sweden doesn't have crazy deaths with no masks, no shutdowns, merely prudential precautions undertaken. Or why the decline in deaths, the steady decline in deaths since April, doesn't end this discussion.
Oh, sorry bruh. I'll go back and check it out no later than tomorrow.
Narciso, forgive me but I'm drawing a total blank. You sent me something via eMail?
Hello, MM. JiB, did you happen to see that video from the Clay County Sheriff the other day? Deputizing county residents if trouble breaks out? That's the suburban county where I grew up. I don't think Jacksonville is going to have an issue. As I've said to many, Jax ain't Plastic City Orlando, it ain't Cigar City Tampa, and it ain't Capital of the Americas Miami. It's True Blue, I Love America territory. Antifa can bring the bullshit if they want to, they will regret it. To my great pride, even law enforcement down in Miami has not been putting up with any craziness.
Lyle, my man! I still can't quite get the hang of this cookin' thang but I am making slow progress. Happy 4th of July, everybody.
I'm good, Narciso. Wife still driving me crazy because the damn Democrats have convinced her and many in her crowd that the virus, the virus, the virus is going to get me because I refuse to wear a damn mask. I honestly and seriously want to crack some damn skulls.
Get ready to get cancelled, Mr. Wiley. That is, if you haven’t already been by now... Posted by: lyle | July 03, 2020 at 01:56 PM Not gonna happen. That show, luckily, has carved out a space where dogmatic adherence to leftwing social justice warrior sports bias does not rule the day. Jason Whitlock did a great job setting up that show, and is unabashedly pro-American. Yes, it's definitely Black in its orientation but not embarrassingly so. Now that Jason has left Fox Sports and joined Clay Travis, that promises to be an interesting partnership.
The board seems full of despair. That's precisely what they want, what they've planned for, what they desperately need. Why give it to them? It was an outrageous Supreme Court decision by John Roberts. It dares to dictate process to the Executive Branch for a matter exclusively within the purview, constitutionally, of the Executive. The solution is simple, it seems to me. Attorney General Barr, harking back to his November 2019 Olson Lecture, repudiates the decision as an unconstitutional encroachment on the exclusive powers of the Executive and he announces his advice to the President to give it no effect. That's not a constitutional crisis, that is a constitutional check implemented and empowered by the Founders. Announce it at your Saturday rally, Mr. President. They have no Army, and they are the most dependent of the three branches of government. Good faith is their friend and they have squandered good faith. The Army that does exist clearly sees what is going on, the unrelenting harassment across the board including from some in the military chain of command, and will maintain order. Most important of all, for me: begin announcing indictments of the wrongdoers. If I'm reading Adam Lovinger's recent discussion with Saul Montes-Bradley, the Administration is ready to move forward. Looks to me like the time for maximum impact is now. Bring the pain, Mr. President, bring the pain.

What does that tell us? To a reasonable person it tells us that the entire idea of racist cops killing innocent black people is pretty much a complete left-wing lie. Posted by: The Infamous Ignatz | June 08, 2020 at 11:48 AM Exactly right, Iggy. It sickens me just how much they've made the Black community reflexively demonstrate for what amounts to -- invariably -- criminal elements in our community who have likely stolen from and abused mostly people within the African American community. It's reflective not necessarily of a sickness but something of a sickness combined with remarkable political immaturity. In a nation that allows for the exercise of full adulthood, we politically keep insisting on acting as a 6 year old in a house full of adults who willingly goes to a back bedroom, locks the door, and keeps screamig UNFAIR, UNFAIR, UNFAIR !!! I'm convinced the Black millionaires threatening to take a knee during the national anthem in the NFL should be made to apologize to the nation if they follow through. They would be willing participants in a blatant lie and that should not be tolerated.

Well, I hope this isn't pandering, good people (by the way, Good Day to all), but I've put together a VoiceOver reel and am beginning the process of hunting down work in that form of media. If y'all know a little sumpin' sumpin' *or* somebody in the field, I would be much obliged to receive that info (rattlergator) (at) (gmail)

I avoided Facebook for years because I knew it would only lead to conflict with family and friends. But, so far, I've avoided political discussions and enjoyed reconnecting with family and friends. Tonight, though, a favored niece made my heart sink. Brilliant chick, honors grad from FSU, weirdly chose the College of Education for her Ph.D. out at UT-Austin. She posted something tonight that stopped me dead in my tracks. Paraphrasing, she said to her circle on Facebook to reach out to her if they needed info / resources explaining how colorblindness harms communities of color AND the individuals claiming to be colorblind. Damn. Damn, damn, damn. I'm not really clear why but in the middle of all this racial foolishness, *that* was quite a gut punch.

Good morning, everyone. When I contemplate just how effectively America is about to prosecute these Antifa thugs, two things jump out. [1] Just how long they have tracked and documented their outrageous activities. Everything appears to have been done with an eye for prosecution and conviction, first and foremost. [2] Contact tracers. If you've paid attention to the health care industry (and Big Government) lust for tracking a "spider web of transmission," in order to follow a pathogen as it spreads from person to person, you'll no doubt have an idea of how the Trump Administration has checked out Antifa. They have identified ringleaders, they've data-mined their phone conversations and social media sites via the NSA, they've pinged their phone locations for multiple years. In this national emergency, with the vast and truly phenomenal powers available to the federal government, Trump [yes, dammit, our Very Stable Genius and 4D chessmaster] has weighted most everything for maximum impact. That moment appears to be now. On the streets with Antifa, in the Courts with (among others) General Flynn, and in the Legislative Branch via upcoming hearings and the inevitable revelations. All of which will likely take place as a cascading series of indictments get announced as we roll into the 2020 national elections. I'll end with a modified form of my eMail signature from years ago that I've likely shared here a time or three because it captures my oriention *and* this moment in American history. I think of them as my nine notorious concepts for a contented life: [1] Patience. [2] Preparation. [3] Perseverance. [4] Attention to Detail. [5] Flexibility. [6] Resiliency. [7] Never think that God's delays are God's denials. [8] Hold on; hold fast; hold out. [9] Patience is genius. It begins with patience, and it ends with an affirmation that patience is genius. The single most impressive thing about Donald John Trump to me is that he appears to embody this, even while frustrated by the varied inadequacies of everyday life. Maybe that is wishful thinking, hubris, and / or projection -- but that's the way I see it.
