Clemency Pool

Monday, September 26th, 2016

I believe we should have a “clemency pool”.
Anyone interested? I pick Mumia.

The Case for Illinois

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016


In 2004, when Barrack Obama was running for first term in the Senate and George W. Bush was running for re-election to the presidency, 1 million voters in Illinois voted for both of them.

In 2010, Pat Quinn (D) won the governorship by winning 2 counties of 104.


In 2014, Bruce Rauner (R) beat Pat Quinn by winning 103 of 104 counties.

quinnraunerAs these are off-year elections, it is important to include the last presidential elections to get a grasp on the possible turn-out.



Between 2008 and 2012 Obama lost 4% of his support.

That brings us to this poll.

moeillinoisThis is where I am having trouble. The party composition would have the democrat candidate +17 if the poll used the results of the 2012 election. But as Obama dropped 4% from 2008 to 1012 it would naturally follows that the 13% the poll suggests Clinton is winning by is a reference to another 4% loss from 2012 to 2016. Conveniently, the poll has a margin of error of 4%.

Here is the composition of the poll:

demographicsillpollAs you can see from the two governor elections, these demographics are not realistic. The Dem/ Repub ratio is much closer to even. So if I make both Repubs and Dems 174 (To make them even) and take 89 from the Dems we then have:

Republicans ………………………………………………………………………………………………..174………………….34.05%



Something Else……………………………………………………………………………………………..46………………….09.00%


question12The 89 votes I took away from the Democrats come off the top of these numbers. 284-89= 195 thus we have:

Total Clinton………………………………………………………………………………………195…………………38.12%

Total Trump……………………………………………………………………………………….198…………………38.74%

Total Unsure and Refused…………………………………………………………………….67………………….13.11%

This is where the context of the governor elections come into play. In 2010 Democrats received 46.8% and in 2014 46.3%, so it is fair to assume those numbers are fairly stable. They won one election and lost the other. So if we give the Dems 46.8% from the Unsure and Refused their number becomes 239.148 votes for Clinton leaving 271.852 for Trump.

Projected Clinton………………………………………………………………………………..239.148…………..46.8%

Projected Trump…………………………………………………………………………………271.852…………..53.2%

The unknown factors include the Democrat  “Ground game” and the Trump enthusiasm. Also the percentage of African Americans that will go for Trump.

Update: Today we have a new poll with Clinton up 6 points in a D+17 (Starts on page 8 of  12)

This is why I hate writing up a post. I just finish and this pops up on my Twitters.

If one is rigging polls, you can bet they all are.

Update: New poll has Clinton winning with margins larger than Obama’s win in 2012 and 2008. 53/28








(Hot) Air Ball [rimshot]

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Like all Americans, Kareem Abdul Jabbar is entitled to his opinion. Including pontificating on the coming “race war”. There are, however, a few points Mr. Jabbar prefers to gloss over.

After he points to the Kent State shooting as a catalyst for change, he writes:

You probably haven’t heard of the Jackson State shootings.

On May 14th, 10 days after Kent State ignited the nation, at the predominantly black Jackson State University in Mississippi, police killed two black students (one a high school senior, the other the father of an 18-month-old baby) with shotguns and wounded twelve others.

There was no national outcry. The nation was not mobilized to do anything. That heartless leviathan we call History swallowed that event whole, erasing it from the national memory.

Erasing it from the National memory, indeed. Well, except for Wiki:

A group of around a hundred African-American students had gathered on Lynch Street (named after John R. Lynch), which bisected the campus, on the evening of Thursday, May 14 to protest the United States invasion of Cambodia during the Vietnam War.[2] By around 9:30 p.m. the students had started fires, thrown rocks at white motorists and overturned vehicles, including a large truck. Firefighters dispatched to the scene quickly requested police support.

Mr. Jabbar then goes on to suggest poverty as a rallying point for change.

The U.S. Census Report finds that 50 million Americans are poor. Fifty million voters is a powerful block if they ever organized in an effort to pursue their common economic goals.

Let’s just assume for the moment that Mr. Jabbar’s statistic of “50 million Americans are poor” is accurate. This is an indictment of LBJ’s failed policy of a ‘War on Poverty’. Liberal policies were supposed to end poverty. Fifty years of liberalism either created more poverty or they fudged the numbers to continue the charade.

Then it gets good:

I’m not saying the protests in Ferguson aren’t justified—they are. In fact, we need more protests across the country. Where’s our Kent State? What will it take to mobilize 4 million students in peaceful protest?

Oh, I don’t know… 4 million students that stay in school so they can get good jobs? Ever seen the drop-out rate of students in urban areas?

Because that’s what it will take to evoke actual change.

Oh, I don’t know, that peaceful protest thing hasn’t worked out too well for Fr. Phlegar with all the shootings in Chicago. But let’s spend one minute listening to what his message is.

(Skip the first 30 seconds.)

Sorry about that. But I had to do it to show you what, exactly, this war on poverty means: They want us all poor. You see, if we are all dirt poor then there will be no looting. Or something like that.

The middle class has to join the poor and whites have to join African-Americans in mass demonstrations, in ousting corrupt politicians, in boycotting exploitative businesses, in passing legislation that promotes economic equality and opportunity, and in punishing those who gamble with our financial future.

We now understand how the middle class will join the poor under Obama, but why do whites have to join African Americans? Whites elected Barrack Obama to the highest office in the land and that magnanimous gesture has been dismissed out of hand. Why can’t African Americans join whites now that we know what a complete and utter failure he is? And if there really is 50 million in poverty why are we allowing more impoverished people to cross the border unchecked?

If we don’t have a specific agenda—a list of exactly what we want to change and how

Oh, I think Mr. Jabbar has a ‘specific agenda’. It’s “Change you Can Believe In”- the same communist crap Obama was peddling.

Makes one wonder if Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Barrack Hussein Obama are communists because they have Muslim names or if they have Muslim names because they are communists.


The Cow Pie War

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

We haven’t had a good range war in several decades. This one is heating up nicely.  Some 200 federal agents have descended on Clive Bundy’s ranch rustling cattle and generally making a nuisance of themselves. His ranch has been in his family for  generations, some reports say since the 1870’s. Until the 1990’s the BLM charged for grazing rights and used the money to help the rancher build his property. Then they stopped using the money for that purpose but still charged the fee.

The government claims they are protecting the ‘desert tortoise’. That’s like a snail darter, delta smelt or a spotted owl, only different. The same ‘desert tortoise’ the government cared so much about they decided to euthanize them. The only problem with that assertion is Harry Reid (D-Nevada) changed the boundaries of the ‘desert tortoise’ so that his son, Rory, who happens to be involved with the Chinese in a Solar Farm Project in the same area, could get a handsome commission. It was on the BLM’s website until the guano came in contact with the oscillating devise. Then it was removed.

Some reports suggest the cattle are being euthanized. Where’s PETA?

Now word comes that certain ‘militias’ are heading to this range war to protect the ranch from snipers and low flying helicopters. Government snipers have a propensity to ‘accidentally’ hit women and children.

You will, of course, recall the case of the North Dakota rancher Randy Brossart. When 6 cow wandered onto his property he demanded payment before their release:

Brossart and his family face various criminal charges that relate to a conflict they got into with law enforcement officers after six cows from a neighboring farm wandered onto their land. Brossart declined to return the cattle to their owner until he was paid for the feed they had consumed. When police got involved, three of Brossart’s sons allegedly chased the officers away with guns. In the end, a drone was deployed, Rodney Brossart was repeatedly tased and then arrested, and the cows were handed over.

Brossart had drones from the Dept. of Homeland Security tracking him without a warrant for essentially the same dispute over just 6 cows. In Nevada, 600 cows wander onto BLM land and the government confiscates them for not paying grazing fees.

In the end, Brossart was forced to apologize, and given a 6 month sentence. The judge had this to say about the case, which applies to the Nevada case as well:

“This case should have never happened,” state District Judge Joel Medd said in court. “Chalk it up to stubbornness, to stupidity, to being at odds with your neighbors or any combination of those. We should never have been here if the cows would have just been returned.”

I concur.

Boehner’s Happy Campers

Friday, January 31st, 2014

Today I was left another dropping. It came in the form of an e-mail from the GOP inviting me to send them some cash. “Send us some money or you’ll have to live under democrat rule.” Oh no. These guys can’t even jin up scary thoughts for their own supporters. I mean, really, what is scarier, democrats that we have had to deal with for the last five years or republicans that hate their base? And, Chris McNulty (twitter @GOP ), sending the e-mail with the subject line of “[No Subject] (2)” as if you had answered my last missive, was cute. A bit condescending, but cute. It just reminded me that you didn’t answer my last e-mail.

But I do know how to get you to listen, Mr. McNulty. It came to me while I was researching a eastern religion/cult. It is so simple in complexity it is staggering. And the perpetrators can be unemployed for years. There can be no stopping them. Their lives will have meaning again, just like the lives of the illegal aliens John Boehner wants to legalize, only different.

First, lets look at Boehner’s last election. His vote total was 142,731 in 2010. Generally speaking, in a primary election you have about 30% of that vote. 42,819.

Mr. Boehner has a challenger this cycle. His name is Eric Gurr. Mr. Gurr is severe conservative, like Mitt Romney, only different. He means it. I don’t know Mr. Gurr, except what I read, but Boehner isn’t listening, so he has to go.

Eric Gurr, CEO of a computer consulting firm says he will challenge Boehner, primarily because of two things: Boehner’s position on immigration reform and his support for U.S. military involvement in Syria. (Boehner says he supports incremental immigration reform, but Gurr won’t have any of that).

We now know Boehner supports more than “incremental reform”. He supports full-mental reform.

The primary election is May 6, 2014 in Ohio. And as you might expect, the eligibility laws are very stringent:

Ohio law requires that every voter, upon appearing at the polling place to vote on Election Day, to announce his or her full name and current address and provide proof of the voter’s identity.

The forms of identification that may be used by a voter who appears at a polling place to vote on an Election Day include:

  • A current and valid photo identification card issued by the State of Ohio or the United States government; or
  • A military identification (“military ID”); or
  • An original or copy of a current utility bill; or
  • An original or copy of a current bank statement; or
  • An original or copy of a current government check; or
  • An original or copy of a current paycheck; or
  • An original or copy of a current other government document, other than a voter registration acknowledgement notification mailed by the board of elections, that shows the voter’s name and current address.


According to the Domestic Mail Manual, the Post Office is required to deliver mail as marked on the envelope.

1.0 Recipient Options

1.1 Basic Recipient Concerns

1.1.1 Delivery to Addressee

Addressees may control delivery of their mail. Without a contrary order, the mail is delivered as addressed. Mail addressed to several persons may be delivered to any one of them.


If you tell them where you will receive it, they must get it to you, it might take a while, but by law, they must give it their best effort. And if you tell them where you are, they will have no excuse.

Which brings us to The Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. He sort of devised this plan in the ’80s. You see, a homeless person cannot be denied the right to vote. A campsite is a mailing address. And the Public Library will no doubt be delighted to mail you a library card. All you have to do is tell the letter carrier where to deliver it, or stop by the local post office and tell them you want “General Delivery”. Once you have the library card, you go register to vote. Just remember to register before April 6th, and that your campsite is in OH-08.

Come to think of it, a letter from the unemployment office would do nicely as it would reflect a higher rate of unemployment in the district.

The Bhagwan came up with 7,000 registered voters. With only about 21,410 votes needed to get Mr. Boehner to listen and an already viable candidate, I’m sure just the sight of 10,000 campers will bring Mr. Boehner to tears.

Hell, the sight of a good steak would bring him to tears, but that is another problem.

Be a happy camper, dump Boehner.





That Ship of Fools

Thursday, January 16th, 2014



When we last visited the saga of the Mavi Marmara, one of the ships in the Gaza Flotilla, along with The Audacity of Hope, and the Rachel Corrie (obviously a flattop) and several others, it was the subject of a legal action that accused it’s owners and donors of material support for terrorism by violating the Neutrality Act of 1794.

Israel had imposed a blockade of Gaza and the flotilla attempted to run it.

Consequently, as these things usually do, a commission was empaneled to set blame.

Turkey is particularly upset by the conclusion that Israel’s naval blockade is in keeping with international law and that its forces have the right to stop Gaza-bound ships in international waters, which is what happened in the 2010 episode. That conclusion oversteps the mandate of the four-member panel appointed by the United Nations secretary general and is at odds with other United Nations decisions, Turkey argued.


From Wiki:

Nine activists were killed in the raid: Cengiz Akyüz (42), Ali Haydar Bengi (39), İbrahim Bilgen (61), Furkan Doğan (18), Cevdet Kılıçlar (38), Cengiz Songür (47), Çetin Topçuoğlu (54), Fahri Yaldız (43), and Necdet Yıldırım (32).[18][127][128] All of the dead were members of, or volunteers for the İHH.

That would be the Turkish Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (İHH).

Which brings us to Tuesday’s NY Times:

Turkish anti-terrorist police raided the offices of an aid agency on the border with Syria on Tuesday, in part of what local media said was an operation in six cities against individuals suspected of links to al Qaeda.

The Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) said police had raided its offices in the southern Turkish city of Kilis, which borders Syria, and detained one person.


Then it gets worse:

Among those arrested was Ibrahim Sen, al-Qaida’s Middle East deputy, who was released from the U.S. prison camp in Cuba in 2006, Today’s Zaman reported Monday.


Sen has a lawsuit against Donald Rumsfeld which is in the appeals process:

On February 1, 2013, two years and nine months after the motions to dismiss had been fully briefed, Judge Lamberth dismissed the plaintiffs’ claims. Plaintiffs have filed an appeal to the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and expect to brief the case over the course of 2013, arguing inter alia that the three plaintiffs who were determined to be “Not Enemy Combatants” by their CRSTs have cases that may be distinguished from those of the plaintiffs whose claims were dismissed by the D.C. Circuit in Rasul v Rumsfeld.

The appeal to the D.C. Circuit has been fully briefed and the case is set for oral argument at 9:30am on Friday, February 21, 2014 before Judges Brown, Tatel, and Randolph.


I think that ship has sailed.

We know who wears the mom-jeans in that family

Monday, January 13th, 2014


Frank Marshall Davis, who penned a thinly veiled memoir celebrating his and his wife’s sexual relationship with a 13 year old girl stated:

“The number of white babes interested in at least one meeting with a Negro male has been far more than I can handle.”

I wrote about him before and have seen the pr0n shots allegedly of Ann and I think it is safe to say there is a culture in The Movement. A kind of War on Women, if you will.

Activist Stokely Carmichael articulated the general vibe in an infamous, and candid, response.  When asked the role of women in the Students for a Democratic Society,  Carmichael replied, “The position of women in the movement is prone.

Fifty years later, at the memorial service for the greatest Community Organizer in like EVAH we get treated to this:

BbItGNECcAAt3Xh.jpg large

Look how stoic Mrs. Obama is. She is so sweet. They are just having a little fun.

BbIRHYrCUAI8-4Z.jpg large

Uh oh. The Eye™. This is going to leave a mark.


How charming, how chivalrous. He kisses her hand because he knows when she bashes him it’s going to be sore.

And look at Ambassador Susan Rice behind Mrs. Obama with the “Oh boy, are you in trouble” look.

What was he thinking? Who is that woman?

Helle Thorning-Schmidt and her husband Larry Kinnock

Helle Thorning-Schmidt and her husband Larry Kinnock

Is that your Gheydar going off? Larry is the son of Neil Kinnock, who was plagarised by Joe Biden some time ago. Neil was also involved in the Oil for Food Scandal. But here’s where it gets good…

Their marriage became the subject of intense speculation in the Danish press, with one newspaper raising questions over Mr Kinnock’s sexuality. Confronted with the allegations, Miss Thorning-Schmidt was forced to publicly deny Mr Kinnock was gay. ‘I can only say it’s not true,’ she declared.

Ooooo. A duodenum spelunker?
So off the Obama’s go to their usual Hawaiian Holiday, scheduled for 17 days, only a day or so before it ends, Mrs. Obama cites her upcoming birthday as the reason she is staying for an extra two weeks or so. Leaving Barry and the girls to fend for themselves, with the help of Mrs. Robinson, of course. And the White House staff. She really wants to celebrate her birthday without her husband and daughters? Pulease.
The foreign press is having none of it:
The First Lady reportedly claimed following the photograph incident that she was humiliated in front of hundreds of millions of people in the world that watched the ceremony.  The report alleges that she yelled at her husband because she is “tired of it” and it is difficult for her to absorb such a humiliation because of his actions.
Other reports claim that the couple has been sleeping in separate rooms in the White House since the incident and that Michelle turned to a divorce lawyer to handle the matter, in order to ensure that she will receive half of their shared property.  An official in Washington even appraised that the couple will end their relationship and that it appears like a “sure bet.”
OMG! A divorce lawyer. Is that higher than a Constitutional Law Lecturer?
“I’VE had enough!” Furious first lady Michelle Obama hurled those fight­ing words at her husband after he publicly humiliated her by flirting with a leggy blonde foreign leader at South African icon Nelson Mandela’s memorial ser­vice, sources say.
OK. It’s the National Enquirer. To that I’ll just say: John Edward’s love child.
Maybe the Danish Prime Minister likes her men… Dainty.

The White House rarely comments on the first couple’s private life, and there was no official confirmation last week of where Michelle was staying in Hawaii, or when she intended to return.

Yet the security umbrella that surrounds the couple descended on the Winfrey estate where The Daily Caller, a Washington news website, claimed Michelle was staying with a small group of female friends including Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House adviser, and Gayle King, a television presenter and close friend of Winfrey.

To quote Stokley Carmichael again:

“The position of women in the movement is prone.

Well, Michelle isn’t going to take that lying down. Not without The Oprah™ and Gayle King.


The Privileged Class

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

Of all the left wing insanity we have had to endure these past few years, this just tops it all. It’s like watching sausage being made.

In its attempt to define who’s a journalist and who’s not, is the US Senate trying to say that Thomas Paine, a corset-maker, wouldn’t have deserved the same protections from government heavy-handedness as a newspaper publisher like Ben Franklin?

The first version of a media shield law that handily made it through the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday defined for the first time what constitutes a “real reporter” deserving of extra protection versus what Sen. Dianne Feinstein called a “17-year-old blogger” who doesn’t deserve a legal shield.

The cynical side of me says this is merely a consolidation of power. The left has nailed down all the journalism jobs in the dinosaur media and is attempting to nail the door shut by controlling who gets into J-school- thus who gets this new ‘protection’. But it is far more insidious than that.

Let’s go to the video tape…

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Common sense would dictate that the defining of a ‘journalist’ by Congress would reasonably be deemed an abridgement of ‘the press’, but let’s not let a silly piece of paper get in the way of important business of the Senate. We all remember how leftists enjoy their stupid titles of nobility. Like Barbara Boxer:

I have long advocated the next president should issue White House press passes to right wing bloggers foregoing the Dino-media and their Eason Jordan mentality. Think of it as ‘progress’. For the childruns.

Recently, Vladamir Putin allegedly wrote a piece for the New York Times. The New York Times, being broke, had to cut out the middleman and go directly to the source. Walter Duranty would be so proud. Maybe Vlad will get a Pulitzer for that piece. Who knows, stranger things have happened. Like Obama getting the Nobel Peace Prize for doing… well, nothing.

Leading from behind!

Leading from behind!


Here’s where we get to the nitty-gritty:

“All we’re doing is adding privilege to existing First Amendment rights, so there is, logically, zero First Amendment threat out of this,” said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, (D) of Rhode Island.

I have written about ‘privilege’ before, but let’s go through it again, shall we? A privilege is a permission to do something that would otherwise be a tort. In effect, the Senate is issuing forth license to the dead-tree media to protect it from slander and libel, while at the same time bloggers are placed on notice.

The notion that somehow ‘privilege’ adds to a ‘Right’ is at the same time laughable and depressing. Even the Supreme Court has ruled a Right cannot be converted into a privilege. (Don’t make me find the citation.) Explained a different way: Suppose an idiot politician were to say they are going to make breathing air a privilege. You would still have the Right to breath air, but they were just adding privilege to the Right. How fast could you find the tar and feathers?


I got yer ‘privilege’ right here:

TACOMA, Wash. – Legislators headed to work can’t get speeding tickets — or so says the Washington State Patrol and at least one local police department.

A spokesman for WSP says Washington lawmakers are constitutionally protected from receiving noncriminal traffic tickets during a legislative session, as well as 15 days before. A spokeswoman says The Tacoma Police Department abides by a similar policy.

State Patrol spokesman Bob Calkins says the privilege not only applies to moving violations near the state Capitol in Olympia, but potentially anywhere in the state.


Burning Down the House

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

From The Washington Times via Gateway Pundit:

The legal watchdog Judicial Watch released an audio recording Thursday of a Department of Justice staffer urging Sanford, Fla., city officials and the minority advocacy group Dream Defenders to seek justice for Trayvon Martin, because “if a community perceives that there’s something wrong in the black community, there’s something wrong.”

That’s right, screw every other community that perceives this to be wrong. This is the Administration rewarding the race-baiters with the full weight of the Federal government. The Justice Department has gone out of it’s way to accommodate these hustlers in their quest for Zimmerman’s scalp. But it’s not about Zimmerman. This has more to do with the anti-gun crowd making a statement.

Wait. It gets better.

“CRS is an arm of the department that we call the Peacemakers,” Thomas Battles, regional director of the DOJ’s Community Relations Service, said at a meeting at the Shiloh Church on April 19, 2012. “We work with communities where there is real or perceived racial tensions.”

Mr. Battle’s statement indicates he understands there is a difference between real and perceived, by his use of the word “or“. In the world of race-baiting, perception is reality. You can see how this ‘perception based reality’ works when you tune on the news and this case gets wall-to-wall coverage as Benghazi, the IRS gestapo tactics, Fast an Furious, and a host of other scandals are pushed to the back burner for this astro-turfed rent-a-mob.

Let’s continue, before my pyloric valve explodes.

“…When Trayvon happened, for many of us, it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back,” he continued. “We had grown up in a state and environment where race is a way of life … We’re not from Sanford, but what Sanford represented to us was the very real problems going around this state and this country. We wanted to figure out how could we stand in solidarity, and how could we make this about not just justice for Trayvon, but using this moment and using the opportunity to honor his memory, to honor his spirit by working to bring down the various structures and the various systems that allow something like this to happen.”

Mr. Battle is admitting that he job at the Justice Department is to destroy structures and systems. The structures and systems that allow people to defend themselves. There is no distinction between the law abiding and the thug. This is about destroying any semblance of justice. He has ousted a police chief, and taken over the investigation into the truth. The judge has pulled out the stops to see to it that Zimmerman gets convicted. Of something, anything.

The conversation about the guilt or innocence of Mr. Zimmerman is irrelevant. Don’t even bother. The conversation is about whether or not justice died in this country. When justice can be meted out by ‘perceptions’, make no mistake, it’s dead. When a judge can tell a defendant “You have the Right to remain silent, are you going to testify?” and then DEMAND an answer from said defendant, what you have is tyranny. Or a tranny. Whatever.

So yeah, go ahead and burn down the house. We’ll build another. And you will find out how unpleasant it is to stay outside when the weather gets crappy. Go ahead burn that bridge. When you are done you’ll have to stay on your side.

Slash and burn works really well. Until the fields lay fallow.
