Leaks from the Labyrinth

The Police Have Radios? Who Knew? – BSBFB The reason we like to watch “heist” movies is simply because we love to see hard work rewarded. It allows you to more or less root for criminals for a little while. So here’s to you, high speed chase man. You were fun while you lasted. Enjoy your well deserved beating.

Without anybody quite being aware of it identity politics has taken on a life of its own. The campaign against Confederate statues has moved like a pullulating cloud of nanoparticles to the national anthem protest in the NFL. One arm of the cloud has spread to major league baseball. A tendril may soon make the jump to NASCAR racing. There’s no escape from the spreading politicization any more, not in the theater, stadium, school or social media. We’re trapped in hell. The Spreading Cloud

The ‘Salon Left’ Is Killing the Democratic Party This strategy is anti-free speech and, frankly, anti-American. But here’s the good news: it’s not working.

Our technologically advanced society has a posture in which it should not & cannot expect any further significant technological advancement; into the mode of “Everything worth inventing has been invented already,” or to express it with a bit more pinpoint accuracy, “Next thing that gets invented had better be invented by someone female, or else don’t bother us with it.” House of Eratosthenes

It wasn’t the American soldiers interred in honored cemeteries in Europe who aggrieved you, when they were giving their last full measure of devotion, being blown apart by artillery, crushed by rubble, killed in vehicular accidents, shot through the lung by high velocity rounds, burned in fires, fell from the sky, or succumbed to disease. But, it is the flag that you disrespect that did comfort them and decorates their resting places. It isn’t about your impoverished souls; it’s about our unity as a nation. Your grievance is petty compared to one 17-year-old soldier killed in Vietnam, or one 20-year-old sailor drowned in the Coral Sea.

This is clearly the interview of a psychotic woman – She began the interview by saying the President doesn’t care about Puerto Rico, but don’t worry, she’s involved. “FEMA is down there. I’ve called on them to send the Navy, particularly the Naval hospital ship…,” she assured Hayes. “Send the Navy?” I guess she thinks the consolation prize from last November made her Commander in Chief. She’s a scary, psychotic, delusional, race-baiting sore loser who obviously sees no reason to stop lying just because she lost. MOTUS A.D.: Just When You Thought It Was Safe

Hard Data, Hollow Protests Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer. Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers—committed vastly and disproportionately by black males. Among all homicide suspects whose race was known, white killers of blacks numbered only 243.

The implication is clear: home cooks are being radicalized by the site’s recommendation algorithm to abandon their corned beef in favor of shrapnel-packed homemade bombs. And more ominously, enough people must be buying these bomb parts on Amazon for the algorithm to have noticed the correlations, and begin making its dark suggestions. Idle Words

    I lived in LA for a few years in the 90’s. Those live car chases were fun to watch because every once in a while somebody actually got away. Hint: You can’t outrun the helicopters, but they can’t follow you if you drive close enough to LAX.

    “…identity politics has taken on a life of its own…”

    All politics now are simply dress rehearsal for full scale civil war.
    It’s coming, no one knows when, but are you ready for it?

    Good thing Grandma is a mermaid.

    Thanks for the belly laugh at the end. Hope grandma bobs back up.

    Nice comment there in the middle. Complete with Forrest Gump meme support. Gotta love that! Seriously, it is important and, IMEO, critical to read Drudge’s daily headlines on the NFL debacle. Without that, you’d think the NFL was winning the Knee battle. Gate sales busts, merch sales dips, and cable refunds tell a much different story than the regular TV news. The fucking owners have no clue who their audience is! Do these teams even have a board of directors? If so, I’d say some owners need to meet the back door, and fast. Added clue bat: teams will be sold soon for a song. Rush? Donald?

    All this identity politics, posing, infantilizing, hallucinating alternate sexual personalities, deliberately deadening pre-frontal cortex functioning, raging against Trumpian triumphs, are a welcome sign of health on its way. The boil is bursting, the chancre is rotting and is being savored by voracious maggots hungry for the corrupted flesh and foolishness.

    The Stupids are being rejected by their robotic pimpees as the Intersectionalists list to starboard and sink into the swamp of their fractious greedy power plays.

    The Gizzard of Oz digests this pyramid of crap as he himself is exposed as an elephantine vacuum of values.

    The rest of us, astonished, amazed at the contortions of the crazies, cheer those kooks on to their well-earned consequences.
    As the poet Vachel Lindsay has put it, “Rare was the revel and well worthwhile …”

    In re “Identity Politics”…..

    The world needs to be reminded that this is the outcome of the special interest groups created in the 1936 election cycle by……a Democrat. Specifically, Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Brain Trust.” As each new group of voters, farmers/factory workers/manufacturers/students was defined, it was made clear that their purpose was to obtain each his own share of the pie.

    Or in other words FDR imported the Frankfurt School notion of the zero-sum economy: “If he’s got more, it’s because he took it from somebody like you.” Satan couldn’t have put it better.

    “FEMA is down there. I’ve called on them to send the Navy, particularly the Naval hospital ship…,”

    Gee Hillary, I’ll wager the guys in Benghazi would have loved it if you sent the Navy. I’ll even bet that FEMA would have been welcome.
