The AP story on Trump’s unhinged 46-minute Facebook diatribe contains what is being billed as the “harshest thing the AP has written since it was formed in 1846.”

What is it?

Trump called his address, released Wednesday only on social media and delivered in front of no audience, perhaps “the most important speech” of his presidency. But it was largely a recycling of the same litany of misinformation and unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud that he has been making for the past month.

Trump, who spoke from the Diplomatic Reception Room, kept up his futile pushback against the election even as state after state certifies its results and as Biden presses ahead with shaping his Cabinet in advance of his inauguration on Jan. 20.

Are we seeing the long-hoped-for pushback from institutions?

Systems theory holds that disruptions eventually hit a wall, and then the other players in the system rise up and reject it, using increasingly harsh tactics.

If this holds to be true, the next month is going to see an escalation of Trump’s attacks on democracy, America, normalcy, the Rule Of Law, etc.

The pushback is going to escalate as well. That might mean criminal charges, even GOP leaders speaking out against the madness, as the system resists a force attempting to utterly destroy it.

I’m starting to see hints of this appearing at places like RedState. More on this in a minute.

Indeed. But by the standards of the AP, which vigorously opinion-washes its stories, to use words like “recycling” and “futile pushback” this is fire.

Since the AP is the newswire that goes out to radio and TV stations, which pretty much “read the newspaper on-air,” this has an effect. Dimwit smalltown news anchors start shifting from “well, report the controversy” to “Trump is having a tantrum.”

Think of every word like a stone from a catapult, chipping away at the siege wall of DERP DERP DERP that smalltown voters have been fed…

I know I’m being cynical, but I’m having a hard time with the whole “Look at the brave GOP Georgia election officials, let us tongue bathe them in praise, and erect their statues posthaste” lionizing that’s going on.

I’m glad they said what they said, but as everyone else has pointed out, it’s only because they’re in the line of fire right now. I think what’s pissing me off is how they keep stressing their MAGAt bona fides: “We voted for Trump, too! We love all the horrible shit he did for four years! Please don’t murder us and our families!”

They fucking created this mess by supporting Trump. Now we’re supposed to put them on fucking pedestals.

Yeah: and guess who the “liaison” on the WH side was….

Heidi Stirrup, an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller, was quietly installed at the Justice Department as a White House liaison a few months ago. She was told within the last two weeks to vacate the building after top Justice officials learned of her efforts to collect insider information about ongoing cases and the department’s work on election fraud, the people said.

Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money

In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.

When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.

Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style,” Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. “I don’t think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you’re so ruthless you’re just looking out for yourself.”

Barr has the goods on Trump and the orange idiot knows it. Barr will not simply be dismissed without threatening of either releasing felony accusations against Trump himself or implying Barr on his way out will somehow fail to cover up Trump’s crimes. Pardons are coming. The only question is how the SCOTUS will interpret this as any allowance for Trump to escape justice gives automatic license for Democrats to achieve extreme power while on the White House.

Important to note: what was rejected was a motion for what’s called an original proceeding. SCOTUS and some state Supreme Courts have original jurisdiction in limited circumstances; meaning that they can hear the case themselves rather than it going through trial courts. In modern times it is mostly unheard of that a Supreme Court will take something on original jurisdiction. The three who dissented were willing to hear it as an original proceeding, but from what I gather they also made it clear that disenfranchising the entire electorate was a non-starter.

In a nationally televised interview, El Paso Mayor Dee Margo said El Paso is facing a COVID-19 crisis because Hispanics are far more likely to be hospitalized than “normal Caucasians.”

“And as the CDC said earlier this week — our population is 85 percent Hispanic and we are four times more prevalent to be hospitalized because of COVID than any other, than the normal Caucasians,” Margo said Friday on ABC’s morning news show “GMA3: What You Need to Know.”

[…]

This is the second time in recent weeks that Margo has made inflammatory remarks when discussing El Paso’s COVID-19 crisis.

In October, Margo accused city Rep. Peter Svarzbein — who lost family in the Holocaust — of proposing “Gestapo-like tactics” when he advocated for closing off inside dining at restaurants for two weeks to slow the spread of COVID-19. Margo later apologized.

The portrayal of white people as “normal” — and people of color as not — has a long, racist history in the United States. In 1982, Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl Gates said Black people might die in police chokeholds because “their veins or arteries do not open up as fast as they do on normal people.”

[…]

I don’t know if this was previously posted here, but a November 16 Politico article about DeSantis included the following:

Provocative — In the immediate aftermath of the election, Gov. Ron DeSantis went on Fox News and floated the idea that GOP-controlled Legislatures in Michigan and Pennsylvania should overturn the results and name electors for President Donald Trump.

So my theory expressed earlier that DeSantis would rig Florida results for Trump seems totally on target. Georgia Republicans limit their rigging before the voting; DeSantis rigged the election beforehand too — but does seem eager to also rig it afterwards.

“… Artiles recruited Alexis (Alex) Rodriguez, a longtime acquaintance and Facebook friend. …”

“… The no-party candidate with the same surname as the incumbent Democrat had been a registered Republican until just before his qualifying papers were filed to make him a candidate for the Florida Senate. He received 6,382 votes in the election. …”

That would not come from the Wisconsin Supreme Court decision. He would have to be in federal court for that, I think. And so far, they haven’t even let him get his foot in the door.

You can go from a state Supreme Court to SCOTUS but usually it has to involve a federal question (most often it is equal protection under the 14th Amendment). But even then, SCOTUS is typically wary of ruling on something decided entirely on state law.

The December Gun Show is back on! Friday through Sunday Dec 4-6 in Phoenix at the AZ State Fairgrounds. This show is all outdoors, with required mask wearing. We will have piles of ammo, but no guns this time.

KGxvi  Dec 3, 2020 • 1:34:56pm

Also worth noting, all of these cases are being kicked based on basic civil procedure grounds like standing or failure to state a claim or failure to properly plead the requisite facts. Those are not typically the sort of cases the Supreme Court will hear. They typically get bounced pretty quick from the Courts of Appeal, for that matter. They’re literally losing on things that are part of a first year law school civil procedure final exam, it’s actually pretty embarrassing from a lawyerly point of view.

Trump aide banned from Justice after trying to get case info

The official serving as President Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department has been banned from the building after trying to pressure staffers to give up sensitive information about election fraud and other matters she could relay to the White House, three people familiar with the matter tell The Associated Press.

Heidi Stirrup, an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller, was quietly installed at the Justice Department as a White House liaison a few months ago. She was told within the last two weeks to vacate the building after top Justice officials learned of her efforts to collect insider information about ongoing cases and the department’s work on election fraud, the people said.

I had a 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit with the 1.6L diesel engine. It served as my daily driver for a couple of years between 2010 and 2012, after I had just bought my house and wasn’t yet in a position to accumulate funds to pay a down payment on a new car. I drove it until the rear axle separated from the frame on one side. I could get 50 mpg over a full week of driving when traffic was light.

Anymouse would chuckle. We also had a Smart until my ex totaled it on a snowy road in December of 2004, she walked away unharmed. Solid little buggers and it used 3.4 liters of diesel per 100 km, which is…(gotta look it up)…69 mpg.

But only a two-seater. I now drive a 4-seater Volkswagen Lupo that uses 5.5 l/100 km, or around 42 mpg.

Based on your risk profile, we believe you’re in line behind 23.0 million people across the United States.

When it comes to Nebraska, we think you’re behind 151,700 others who are at higher risk in your state.

And in Morrill County, you’re behind 300 others.

Behind 23 million. There are some advantages to being an old.

I had a bike shop recommended to me to rehab my late 80’s Rockhopper. I was also told he was kind of eccentric.

Cycle shops around the Western world have never been so busy thanks to COVID-19. There’s a bike shop literally a metre from my street door (I measured it once) where the owner, also a bit eccentric, is working ten and twelve-hour days six days a week fixing bikes, selling new bikes and buying in old bikes[1] and refurbishing them. He takes great care to wear a mask, he has a counter across the door and no-one’s allowed in the shop because of COVID-19.

[1] Edinburgh, where I live is a student city. A lot of students buy cheap-ish second-hand bikes when they arrive at the beginning of term to get around, despite the hills and steep streets in the city centre. Comes the end of term or they finish up their degree, they’re moving out and leaving the city and they don’t want to take the bike with them. The bike shops buy them back at a fraction of the original cost, fix them up again and wait until the new term. Ka-ching!

I was staying late, do whatever the client wanted (who were major assholes in their own right; think Trump-style family), and this guy would pretty much be an obnoxious pain in the ass. They eventually got rid of him, but Christ; I really don’t get what this guy’s appeal was.

I currently have a Chevy Silverado, V6 automatic.

I’m lusting after a 2003 BMW Z4 with the 3.0i & 6 speed manual and rag top. $7500 at 110,000 miles. Decent shape, 2 owner vehicle that’s well maintained. The bank however would laugh at me.

I could get 50 mpg over a full week of driving when traffic was light.

What really surprised me was when I had a 2005 Ford Five Hundred with a CVT (perhaps the first US manufacturer to use a CVT in a passenger car) I was able to eke out 30 mpg - in a full-sized sedan.

I still see some of those beasts on the road up here (either the Five Hundred or the Mercury-badged Montego) - looks like that Duratec 3.0L is hard to kill.

Ford’s pre-Ecotec engines were almost bullet-proof. Engines in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s were the final evolution of the early EFI designs, and had been refined to maximize reliability and simplicity. However, the continuing march of CAFE standards necessitated the efficiency of gasoline direct injection and/or using smaller turbocharged engines (Ford Ecotec, GM High Value/Family 0).

I’ve never heard that. Admittedly, the one guy I talk to most about Volkswagens is absolutely an enthusiast for the little beasties, but one of the reasons I was considering buying one was its record of reliability and efficiency.

Vdubs have been trying to position themselves as being at par with Mercedes for some years now. Their prices keep going up but their quality doesn’t.

I wanted a stick shift for my daily driver, but Mrs. Fish wouldn’t have it because she said she might have to use my car someday, and she can’t drive a stick. That’s not my problem; if you can’t drive it, I’ll buy you a car you can drive, and you can just stick to that, honey. Next daily driver I get will be clutched and shifted the way God intended.

I went automatic transmission on my car last December for the first time. Mainly due to my Subaru catching fire 150+ miles from home just before Christmas. And the dealership I limped it into did not have any manual transmission cars available.

When I got my Challenger back in 2013, there was only one or two manuals available in all of southern California (at least for the RT, I’m sure the SRT8 there might have been a couple more). But they mostly just don’t exist anymore… when I last took it in for service I was wandering around the lot and none of the Jeeps had manual transmissions, which just seemed weird.

I’ve seen that a lot of the supercars have gone away from manuals because drivers just can’t keep up - even with the flappy panels. I suspect as more hybrids and electrics populate the road, the manual gearbox (along with the automatic) is going to end up in the Smithsonian.

I’ve driven a Tesla a few times now, and I think that as much as I love the stick, which I really do, the inertial drag/automatic braking thing gives more precise control over acceleration and deceleration AND is fun. I’m pretty sure my next car will be electric.

both pick ups I’ve driven (89 toyota when I turned 16, and an ‘05 F150 I got after I graduated law school) were automatics. So was the 99 Mustang I got as a 21st birthday present to myself. The Challenger is the first manual I’ve owned and it took some getting used to. I do enjoy driving a manual, but have been intrigued by the electrics lately.

Then again, the goal as always been to have a classic car for side quests, so maybe that’s still the goal? I can get an electric in the next couple of years for my daily stuff and the car from Bullitt as my side quest mobile

My dream car is a 1968 Corvette with the incredibly rare L88 racing engine package. It was from a time when endurance racing leagues required manufacturers to offer their race cars and engines as production vehicles. Like every other manufacturer, Chevrolet deliberately de-rated their race engine so that customers would opt to buy the (apparently) higher-power Tri-Power offering, leaving the stock car package for people who knew what they were offering.

re: #128 wrenchwench

I have a 1995 Schwinn that I shift with the old-fashioned levers that pull (or release) cables. I live in a flat enough town now that I could go single-speed. Don’t know whether I can safely operate with just a coaster brake. Maybe front-wheel handbrake. I used to think that was a stupid way to go, but I have become stupid enough…

My Specialized is 1995 also. I have the rear brake disconnected, don’t need it on account of the disk brake in front. (Not original equipment - the bike is on its 3rd fork) Does pretty well at getting me to and from work every day.

Now I know what your ‘RBG’ is for; Rear Brake, Gone!

My bike is on its 4th fork. I never broke one, just upgraded. The first one was a crappy suspension fork that would make me crash when I started really off-roading. The second one was a rigid fork from a Trek, the third was an upscale (but nearly worn out) suspension fork that matched the bike pretty well. When it started leaking oil, I put a rigid Trek fork on again. Not matching this time. I have an alternating red and yellow theme going on.

V-brakes were my best upgrade. My commute is only a mile, so I walk sometimes. I did an eleven mile commute for a year. That’s worth changing clothes for.
