Spin Zone / China and U.S. agree to drop tarrifs
« on: November 07, 2019, 07:58:13 AM »
Sorry, the device I am on won't let me cut and paste, so you will have to open the link, but it seems that all the Dems and Media screaming about the "Trade War" with China just got skunked.

Spin Zone / Obama and Holder meet with Soros son
« on: October 23, 2019, 05:52:40 AM »
Now we know who is running the Democrats, or at least one of the Global Elitists running the Democrats.

You won't find this anywhere in the Mainstream MEDIA.  Why?  It happened, it is newsworthy.

Spin Zone / Massive power outage Norcal
« on: October 09, 2019, 08:53:37 AM »
Looks like PG&E is getting back at all the people that filed lawsuits over the forest fires.  Instead of using the money to keep trees away from the power lines, they have to use it in legal fees, and file CH. 11 bankruptcy.  I lived in the Bay Area at one time (can you believe it?) and know Marin County very well.  It is populated by very wealthy FAR LEFT Progressives.  They are getting what they asked for. 

Quote
Overnight, the utility shut off power to more than half a million customers in Central, Coastal and Northern California. Officials said a second group of about 234,000 customers will lose power starting at noon.

It could take as many as five days to restore power after the danger has passed because every inch of power line must be checked to make sure it isn’t damaged or in danger of sparking a blaze, PG&E said.

The utility, whose lines deliver electricity to millions of Northern California residents, began what they call Public Safety Power Shutoffs around midnight in some regions–Napa, Solano, Sonoma and Marin Counties–as a precaution to prevent deadly wildfires.

PG&E is currently under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after its power lines ignited several massive wildfires in Northern California since 2017. Victims of those fires have filed millions of dollars in damage lawsuits against the utility.

The utility claims a combination of a high wind advisory and red flag wildfire warning forced their hand.

Spin Zone / Trump signs TRADE AGREEMENTS with Japan
« on: October 07, 2019, 12:55:17 PM »
Great news.  Japan has been taking advantage of us for years.

Quote
President Donald Trump on Monday is set to sign two agreements at the White House related to the U.S. trade relationship with Japan.

Trump is set to sign the U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement and U.S.-Japan Digital Trade Agreement, according to the White House.

The president is sealing those deals with Japan days before his negotiators are set to resume high-level trade talks with a delegation of senior Chinese officials. The two economic superpowers are working to hash out a sweeping deal that addresses issues including trade deficits, intellectual property theft and forced technology transfers.

Yet all the Liberal/Progressive bed wetters can do is cry about a "Trade War".

Spin Zone / B-17 crash in CT
« on: October 03, 2019, 06:44:31 AM »
Very sad for loss of life and loss of the aircraft.  On some other forums I'm on they are calling for a permanent stop to all Warbird flights saying they are too old, and too dangerous.  All should be in museums as static, non flying displays.  What say you?

SF Board of Supervisors declare NRA a domestic terrorist organization
San Francisco Supervisor Catherine Stefani wants the city to make better use of a state law that allows gun seizures. Stefani penned a resolution that was passed by the Board of Supervisors Tuesday declaring that the National Rifle Association is a domestic terrorist organization.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution on Tuesday declaring that the National Rifle Association is a domestic terrorist organization. The officials also urged other cities, states and the federal government to follow suit.

These people are just mentally ill.  They are a reflection of where the Left (Democrats) have gone in this country.

NBC, MSNBC both owned by Biden backing Comcast and other outlets like CNN, ABC/ESPN (Disney), CBS, PBS, and almost every newspaper, plus the AP, and Reuters are megaphones only for the LEFT.  Yes, they will occasionally try to give the image of balanced, but it is rare.

For years, media bias has been hotly debated. Let me settle this here and now. The mainstream media is not biased. Bias implies some level of subtly in the prejudice. There is nothing subtle about the media’s blatant partiality which actually reaches the level of dishonest propaganda.

There is an unmistakeable trend in play – some evil and/or demented person kills and injures a large number of innocent people and the extreme Left and the “mainstream” media (but I repeat myself) blame conservatives for the evil-doer’s actions. This is an almost reflexive reaction for the media and the Left.

In 2011, I was on a liberal television news show to defend conservatives from charges that they were responsible for Jared Loughner’s rampage in Tucson, Arizona that killed six and severely injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. To the host of the show, it was self-evident that Loughner was motivated by conservatism and/or conservatives.

The only problem with the host’s theory is there was, and is, absolutely no evidence to support it. The shooter was not a conservative. Loughner’s friends and writings showed him to be decidedly “left wing.”

After the Aurora, Colorado movie theatre shooting in 2012, news sources reported that the shooter was a member of the Tea Party. That not only proved to be entirely false, but there was no reliable evidence to support it. It was pure speculation.

The Left loves to play this blame game and loves to call their ideological opponents vial names because they seek to silence and delegitimize their adversaries.

Spin Zone / Wisconsin College Campus Free Speech Bill
« on: August 20, 2019, 07:44:03 AM »
I don't understand why the Left (Democrats) are OK with giving up their Natural Rights.  Specifically Free Speech and the Right to possess firearms.  Two basic rights that they actually want GOVERNMENT to largely abolish.  They want whatever the government defines as "Hate Speech" made illegal, and want to ban and confiscate ALL firearms starting with semi auto rifles which are hardly ever used in crime. 

However, this bill is aimed at Free Speech on College Campuses, which in the last forty years have become strictly bastions of PROGRESSIVE thought with the support only for Democrats.

Quote
Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin will soon introduce a bill that will allow the University of Wisconsin to punish students who aggressively disrupt speakers on campus in an effort to “ensure free speech on UW campuses.”

The Campus Free Speech Act defines disruptions as those who engage “in violent or other disorderly conduct that materially and substantially disrupts the free expression of others,” according to a copy of the legislation obtained by The College Fix.

I think this is a great idea!

Spin Zone / Robot Army, Navy, Air Force?

THE US Navy wants to build a fleet of ten robot warships over the next five years.
The huge ships referred to as Large Unmanned Surface Vehicles (LUSVs) would function as scouts for the main battle fleet, carrying radar and sonar as well as anti-air and cruise missiles.

“The LUSV will be capable of semi-autonomous or fully autonomous operation, with operators in-the-loop (controlling remotely) or on-the-loop (enabled through autonomy).”

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9747088/us-navy-robot-warship-unmanned/

More and more we see the Air Force using unmanned aircraft, "UAV's, and now we will see unmanned ships, and I am sure ground forces.  Unmanned tanks, and robotic soldiers.  All connected with software to allow situational awareness with their counterparts and air, and sea assets.

Artificial Intelligence will rule the battlefield.  "Autonomy" is a term used over and over.  It this a good thing?  Is taking the human element out of war a positive?

Well, well, many of us have been saying since the Democrat/Media Russia COUP failed, that the Media has moved to Trump and all Trump supporters are RACIST narrative.  This just confirms it.

Quote
Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the New York Times, said recently that, after the Mueller report, the paper has to shift the focus of its coverage from the Trump-Russia affair to the president's alleged racism.

"We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well," Baquet said. "Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story."
Baquet made the remarks at an employee town hall Monday. A recording was leaked to Slate, which published a transcript Thursday.

In the beginning of the Trump administration, the Times geared up to cover the Russia affair, Baquet explained. "Chapter 1 of the story of Donald Trump, not only for our newsroom but, frankly, for our readers, was: Did Donald Trump have untoward relationships with the Russians, and was there obstruction of justice? That was a really hard story, by the way, let's not forget that. We set ourselves up to cover that story. I'm going to say it. We won two Pulitzer Prizes covering that story. And I think we covered that story better than anybody else."

But then came the Mueller report, with special counsel Robert Mueller failing to establish that the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to fix the 2016 election. "The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened," Baquet continued. "Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, 'Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.' And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we're talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We're a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that's what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?"
Baquet used the gentlest terms possible — "the story changed" — but the fact is, the conspiracy-coordination allegation the Times had devoted itself to pursuing turned out to be false. Beyond that, Democrats on Capitol Hill struggled to press an obstruction case against the president. The Trump-Russia hole came up dry.

Now, Baquet continued, "I think that we've got to change." The Times must "write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions."

"I mean, the vision for coverage for the next two years is what I talked about earlier: How do we cover a guy who makes these kinds of remarks?" Baquet said. "How do we cover the world's reaction to him? How do we do that while continuing to cover his policies? How do we cover America, that's become so divided by Donald Trump?"

The town hall was spurred by angry reaction, both inside and outside the Times, to a headline that many on the Left faulted for being insufficiently anti-Trump. After the El Paso shootings, when the president denounced white supremacy, the Times published a page-one story with the heading, "Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism."

"I think one of the reasons people have such a problem with a headline like this ... is because they care so much," one staffer said to Baquet. "And they depend on the New York Times. They are depending on us to keep kicking down the doors and getting through, because they need that right now. It's a very scary time."
Baquet vowed a transition to a new "vision" for the paper for the next two years. "How do we grapple with all the stuff you all are talking about?" he said to the staffer. "How do we write about race in a thoughtful way, something we haven't done in a large way in a long time? That, to me, is the vision for coverage. You all are going to have to help us shape that vision. But I think that's what we're going to have to do for the rest of the next two years."


The headline controversy, it appears, was a preview of a new 2019-2020 New York Times. If Baquet follows through, the paper will spend the next two years, which just happens to be the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, building the Trump-is-a-racist narrative. (Baquet added, almost as an afterthought, that the Times will "continu[e] to cover his policies.")

The employee town hall was not intended to be public. But the Times is a news organization, and no one could be surprised that a recording of it leaked, possibly by Times employees who want to push Baquet in an even more anti-Trump direction. In any event, it's now public. And the results will play out for the next two years.

FOX 29 has learned Hill has an extensive criminal history including at least a dozen arrests since he was turned 18. Hill has been in and out of prison since 2002 after being convicted on charges including illegal possession of guns and aggravated assault.

Most recently, Hill was convicted of perjury in 2013 and was sentenced to seven months’ probation.

Multiple Felon, did jail time for possessing illegal weapons, and jail time for other violent crime, and drug dealing yet he's on the street to commit more violent crime.  The Mayor says that weapons and "fire power" are the problem and need to be addressed.

Spin Zone / Why are so many Democrats running for President?
« on: August 09, 2019, 09:39:45 AM »
Do they think Trump is vulnerable?  Do they just want name recognition for other political office, cabinet positions, etc.?  Do they think they actually have a shot at the nomination?

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Jake Poorman is exhausted. He's been trying to get every Democratic presidential candidate to sign a baseball, a souvenir of the wildest Democratic primary he's seen in his 60 years as an Iowan. He's gathered so many signatures — 16 — he had to get another ball.
That, coupled with the constant controversies out of Washington, has him a bit burnt out on politics.
"It's a lot of work," he bemoaned. "There's starting to be a bit of fatigue."

Iowans treasure the national attention that shines on them every four years when presidential candidates descend on the state, whose caucuses mark the beginning of an election year. But as virtually every Democratic contender swings through Iowa this weekend to participate in the famed state fair, even some die-hard Democratic activists are getting restless.

Spin Zone / Is President Trump to blame for the recent Mass Shootings?
« on: August 07, 2019, 05:31:20 AM »
The Democrat Presidential candidates, other Democrats, and the Media are blaming Trump for the recent mass shootings.  Is it his fault?

Quote
Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said that no politician, including President Donald Trump, was to blame for shootings like those in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, which left at least 29 people dead this weekend.

As Democratic presidential candidates point the finger at the president's divisive rhetoric, Mulvaney said on ABC's "This Week" that the suspect who allegedly killed 20 people at a Walmart in El Paso appeared to have been motivated by beliefs he harbored before Trump became president.
