Men's Basketball Trumpenfreude

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 9/13/2019 10:27:05 AM

Basketball coach Gregg Popovich is best known to readers for being a ho-hum, run-of-the-mill, Trump-hating celebrity. Now we can add to his resume the title of Worst Coach of the USA Men's Basketball Team. Hahaha. Oh I love it. He finally got a shot this year at coaching the international team, after a rather successful career in the NBA. And under Popovich's coaching, the team broke a 78-game winning streak, but that loss did not count against their winning streak in tournament games. Popovich broke that streak this week, and lost again to set up a 2-game losing streak.

He is also an angry, retired USAF Col intel weenie and a Russia specialist. Someone check his office at the AT&T center for any Russia collusion material.

An excellent basketball coach. A rotten waste of an Air Force Academy education. I used to watch the Spurs (even had season tickets several years ago). No more.

Houlton Sector Border Patrol agents arrested four Brazilian migrants who initially entered the U.S. legally but overstayed their visas. Rangeley Station Border Patrol agents received a tip about suspicious activity near a Walmart store in Farmington, Maine. Agents responded to the area where they encountered two Brazilian migrants. During an interview with the migrants, Border Patrol agents learned the two men entered the U.S. legally on B1/B2 tourist visas more than 11 years ago, according to information obtained from Houlton Sector Border Patrol officials. Further investigation led to the discovery of two more Brazilian migrants residing at a local hotel. The agents made the discovery after transporting the first two migrants

‘Borders Mean Something’

Former Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out defending the Obama administration from critics on the far-left about its deportation efforts while warning 2020 presidential candidates that the U.S. needs borders. “The emphasis there was on people who had criminal records, people who posed a danger, a public safety risk,” Holder, who served under former President Obama, said of the Obama administration’s policy in a CNN interview released Saturday. “Democrats have to understand that…borders mean something,” he added. In the interview, Holder expressed disagreement with some 2020 Democrat candidate proposals to make illegally entering the U.S. a civil rather than a criminal offense.

A Florida-based search and rescue team returned this week from one of the hardest-hit islands in the Bahamas, describing the devastation sustained during Hurricane Dorian as unlike anything they’ve ever seen. Joseph Hillhouse, assistant fire chief at Gainesville Fire Rescue, was part of a six-man team that collaborated with local emergency services on urban search and rescue missions in the town of Marsh Harbour in the Abaco Islands. (Snip) “There are so many structures that were destroyed, it wasn’t as simple as just going inside… some [bodies] we had to get to, we had to tunnel through debris to be able to reach them.”

Teams of dog handlers from the U.S., Canada and Belgium are uncovering more and more dead bodies among the debris of Bahamas homes hit by Hurricane Dorian, the Health Ministry said. The Category 5 storm was so powerful that it drowned people who had been seeking refuge in their attics, swept others out to sea, and crushed steel-reinforced concrete structures, according to Health Minister Duane Sands. “To imagine the combination of 200 mph winds, a 20-25 foot sea surge, torrential rain, the power out, communications out and you have, and this is no cliche, a perfect storm,” Sands said in a phone interview Wednesday.

When the reports of a possible indictment for Andrew McCabe surfaced, we noted it would be interesting to see how the Lawfare alliance responds. Today we can see that response. Andrew McCabe’s defense attorney, Michael Bromwich (also the attorney for ‘beach friend’ Christine Blasey-Ford in the Kavanaugh narrative), leaks his communication with U.S. Attorney for DC, Jessie Liu, to the New York Times.Leaks to the NYT and WaPo are how the Lawfare alliance push their narrative. These are the same DOJ/FBI officials who leaked to the same media when constructing the Russian Conspiracy narrative around the Trump campaign. [Same exact people]

In a quite admission of food dependency, China purchased 600,000 tonnes of soybeans yesterday (link), and simultaneously announced that U.S. pork and soybean imports would be exempt from further tariff increases. The surface message Beijing is selling, surrounds their magnanimous panda narrative of reaching out to diminish trade friction. However, below the surface everyone knows China cannot feed itself and if food prices keep rising they could likely have growing unrest.Beijing’s decision to not enhance tariffs of pork and soybeans is very self serving. Particularly because China owns Smithfield foods, the largest producer of U.S. pork. In essence China has lessened tariffs against their own company.

The recession-hoping pundits took more blows to their remaining credibility today when both the Commerce Department and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) deliver excellent economic results from August that continue to exceed MSM expectations. The Commerce Dept. announced that retail sales climbed by 0.4 percent in August, twice as high as the 0.2 percent analysts had predicted. The result highlights retail sales strength of more than 4 percent year-over-year. These excellent results come on the heels of blowout data in July, when households boosted purchases of cars and clothing.

A moratorium on the refugee resettlement program is “long overdue,” columnist Michelle Malkin says, after American communities have been forced to absorb hundreds of thousands of refugees from across the globe over the last four decades.

And then there were ten. Showing more mercy than when Democrats took your health plan away, even though you liked it, and much more than they did during, say, the Battle of Poison Spring, the DNC has whittled the debate field down to just ten contenders, facing off on just one night.(Snip)I've been at this for well over three hours, so I'll let one of our slightly less-exhausted (and presumably more sober) PJ writers do the big wrap. I will say this though: This wasn't a debate. It was an over-long display of huge egos touting small ideas to well-meaning (but sadly misinformed) kids and preening celebrity infotainment newsreaders.

In the opening of the third Democratic debate in Houston, Texas, moderator Jorge Ramos spoke part of his opening statement in Spanish before finishing with “This is our country, too.” The extremely racially-charged rhetoric from Ramos preceded several race-based questions regarding the status of illegal aliens in the country, where numerous false assertions were made. Ramos falsely claimed that President Trump referred to all immigrants as “rapists,” and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro (D-Texas) falsely claimed that President Trump inspired the El Paso shooter, even though the shooter admitted in his own manifesto that his views “predate Trump and his campaign for president.”

It’s simply hard to know where to begin to respond to the staggering chutzpah of Jennifer Rubin’s recent Washington Post opinion column accusing the president of undermining our intelligence community. Rubin used the recent leak regarding the exfiltration (Snip)of an undercover “asset” in Russia as a hook to make the case that the president is somehow responsible for outing this source and therefore harming U.S. interests. Her column is an example of the backward view elite leftists have towards democracy and the Constitution. These elites, in desperate need of a remedial civics class, have convinced themselves that our elected president must learn to take orders from the intelligence community.

One of Brett Kavanaugh's male classmates at Yale has alleged the Supreme Court Justice made unwanted sexual contact with another female student while at the school. A New York Times expose details a story by classmate Max Stier who says he saw Kavanaugh at a party with his pants down. Friends allegedly pushed his penis in to a female student's hand. Stier told senators and the FBI about this, but the bureau did not investigate, according to the NYT. Stier runs a non-profit in Washington and has declined to discuss the story publicly.

The DoJ’s rejection of a last-ditch appeal by the legal team representing fired FBI Director Andrew McCabe and the recommendation by federal prosecutors that charges actually be filed against the documented liar, leaker, and co-conspirator in the attempted coup against duly elected President Donald Trump puts the deep state in a face-to-face confrontation with a potential legal Armageddon. An indictment will leave McCabe with no excuse for not carrying out his threat to bring them all down with him.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) said Wednesday that Miami has only a few years left on this planet. At an NAACP forum, the democratic socialist touted the Green New Deal, her radical climate change plan many have criticized as unrealistic. Economists, investors, and energy industry experts have frequently noted the plan's astronomical costs and the unreliability of renewable energy, but Ocasio-Cortez said her critics are the ones who are "not realistic." "When it comes to climate change, what is not realistic is not responding … with a solution on the scale of the crisis—because what's not realistic is Miami not existing

Mayor Pete Buttigieg criticized some gun owners on Friday, suggesting it was sad that their “sense of manhood” depended on owning a gun. In an interview with TMZ Live on Friday, Buttigieg was asked about the Twitter feud between former Congressman Beto O’Rourke and Texas Republican Representative Briscoe Cain. After O’Rourke told gun owners that “Hell, yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15″ during the Democrat debate on Thursday, Cain dared Beto O’Rourke on Twitter to come and take his AR-15. Buttigieg agreed with O’Rourke that Cain’s comment on Twitter was a “death threat,” and the South Bend mayor admonished Cain for failing to have a more intelligent conversation about gun issues.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs went after Sen. Mitt Romney on Friday after the Utah Republican said this week that he does not plan to endorse President Trump or others in 2020, asking, "What is wrong with this man?" Dobbs, a vocal backer of Trump, referred to the GOP senator as a "never Trumper and RINO" in a segment Friday night. He began the segment by touting Trump's electoral chances in 2020 as well as predictions that there won't be a recession next year. "Can you hear the tears falling on the marble floors under those terrible, terrible anti-Trump-ers?" he asked, suggesting more attention should be paid to "this booming Trump economy."

In all of the decades that the modern version of the contentious debate in America over guns, freedom, and the Second Amendment has been going on, the gun-control advocates have repeatedly assured gun owners of one thing: they don't want to take our guns away from us. My, what a difference one presidential primary full of unabashed Democratic statists makes. After years of being told that we are paranoid for saying that the anti-gun Left wants to confiscate our weapons, the anti-gun Left is letting us know in no uncertain terms that they want to confiscate our weapons. Loudest among them is Robert Francis "Horse Mouth" O'Rourke

Microsoft attempts to fix the various issues plaguing Windows 10, but the latest patch release only caused more problems in the system. It's been tough going for Microsoft when it comes to Windows 10. Specifically, the patch caused issues in the search option of the Start menu and Taskbar. Microsoft released a patch called KB4515384 on Tuesday, Sept. 10, which was meant to address issues in Cortana and SearchUI functionality causing high CPU spikes and the Desktop Search to cease functioning properly. Unfortunately, the patch proved to be an unreliable fix, with reports of the Windows 10 Start Menu failing to work properly. ExtremeTech

Marilyn Synek loves the coffee and crepes at Cultiva Espresso & Crepes in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her weekly visits have become something of a tradition. But on Wednesday, Synek tells me she was confronted by one of the employees who demanded that she leave the coffee shop because of her conservative beliefs. “Marilyn Synek! I didn’t recognize you until now, but I just realized who you are, what you stand for, and the work you do. You are f------ bigoted trash, and we do not want you in our restaurant,” the irate employee shouted. It’s true that Ms. Synek is a conservative. She is employed by the Nebraska Family Alliance.

In the most contentious Democratic debate thus far, a winnowed field of 10 Democratic candidates took the stage in Houston Thursday night and sparred over hot-button issues such as health care and immigration. Notably, this was the first time that frontrunners Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden shared the debate stage. Warren and Biden exhibited stark differences on style, policy and vision for the Democratic Party, embodying two opposing theories of what the party should be.
