In case of a loss on this issue, can Trump make other orders which are similar? Can he ban all immigration in the interestof National Security?

Probably 2-1 against. The Obama and Carter judges will go against Trump, the Bush one in his favor.Despite that, I do have a respect for the Carter-appointed judge that heard this case. He has the right temperament for a judge; the Obama one is a huge hack.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Religion Of Peace edition

Good morning, faithful readers – let’s get suited up and hit the ISO chamber, shall we?

The Freeperati have been taking The Darnold’s “fear of the other” football and running with it like Tony Dorsett on a good day.  What could possibly go wrong?

First, there was this:

Shooting at Quebec City mosque, reports of multiple wounded (Several dead)

Quebec City Police are outside of a mosque where multiple gunshots were fired.

Multiple people are feared wounded, according to CBC’s French-language service Radio-Canada. Their condition is not known at this time.

A number of ambulances are parked outside of the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood.

Police have set up a perimeter around the mosque.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – best laid plans edition

Good Monday morning, sane people!

The insane people are going full speed ahead – right into the rocks.

First of all, from my home State –  “Sheriffs are elected??  Who knew???”

Sheriff Sally Hernandez responds to Gov. Abbott’s threats

kvue.com ^ | Jan. 26, 2017 | kvue

Posted on ‎1‎/‎27‎/‎2017‎ ‎10‎:‎48‎:‎48‎ ‎AM by bgill

Tuesday, Gov. Greg Abbott informed Hernandez in a three-page letter that her ICE policy would betray her oath to residents of Travis County. He also added that failing to remove the policy before it is enacted on Feb. 1 would run the county the risk of losing grant money from the Criminal Justice Division.

Abbott upped the ante Wednesday by telling Fox News Wednesday that he is working with lawmakers to create legislation that would include civil and criminal penalties for public officials wanting to create sanctuary cities.

Hernandez responded Thursday that she would continue on with her policy because it does not go against the state or federal laws.

This is the county where uber lib Austin, TX is. There’s 1.8 million in state funds on the table. It’s only 1% of the sheriff’s budget but it’s still a chunk of money.Hope Abbott find s a way to place her inside a cell in her own county jail.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – one toe back in the water edition

OK, folks – time to quit posting my musings from the Book Of Faces, and get back to some wingnut mockery.

But slowly….Let’s start with just one – Fake Flag Arms Alert!!

Donald Trump’s Bodyguard Has Fake Arms For This Reason
Frag Hero ^

Posted on 1/22/2017, 1:57:10 AM by TigerClaws

After yesterday’s presidential inauguration, many members of the military and law enforcement community noticed something very unusual about one of Trump’s bodyguards. The secret service agent, who happens to bear an uncanny resemblance to Hitman Agent 47, seemed to have very stiff arms that were in an unusual resting position. donald trump bodyguard fake arms Upon further review of video and images, they noticed his hands stayed in that exact same position for hours.  The conclusion they reached, was that he did indeed have tactical fake arms. Take a look at the video and you can even see how they remain unusually still while he’s walking:

If this were true, what would be the point? Everyone would know this. Why use the distracting fake arms, after the second time. Why not just hold the gun under the coat?

Today on Tommy T’s mundane musings – the invisible man

Well, good people, I actually saw the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen on Facebook this week.

A wingnut in one of my political discussion groups actually replied to a liberal poster by calling him a “Commie”.

For reals.

Habit, I guess.

commiescleese

I’m thinking that he didn’t get the memo from The Darnold that red “commies” are the new black.

One more random musing, as Freeperville is still pretty boring (although I did save a thread about their former hero Paul Ryan’s town hall which was pretty amusing).

The Invisible Man

Being a bass guitarist is like being the invisible man of the band. The guitarists get all the attention, the drummers get all the women, and you get the bar tab. Bassists seem to compensate for this in several ways. Some jump all around in an attempt to be noticed (see Flea), some retreat even further into the shadows (see Entwistle), and some overplay (see me).

But do you know something? Without the bass line, the song falls apart. The rhythm stops. The guitar noodling with no sub-strata to hold it up just sounds like some guy practicing scales,  and the kick drum sounds like a petulant ex kicking the door to be let in.

And if your removal from the band’s sound doesn’t do this, you’re not doing your part as a bassist. Your contribution has to be just that – a contribution. Not a dull drone or a kick drum with a note attached to it, but an integral part of the sound.

If it’s not, you may as well just sell your shit and buy a motorcycle.

(bonus Musing below)

Tech Support Humour

Years ago, at my first tech support job, there was a Supervisor who had that obnoxious “You’ve got mail” .wav file tagged to his Outlook incoming mail event.

Fifty times a day. “You’ve got mail!” “You’ve got mail!” “You’ve got mail!” “You’ve got mail!” “You’ve got mail!” “You’ve got mail!”

I was pretty fed up after a week of this, and the next time there was a Supervisors meeting, I went to his machine, unlocked it with my Admin password, and replaced that event sound with one I had brought from home – the sound of someone violently projectile-vomiting.  It was in stereo, and so well-recorded that you could hear the secondary splatter and chunks falling from the wall after the initial – um, surge.

Then I turned the sound card volume up all the way, and removed the volume control icon from the systray. I went to several of the techs on the floor and had them prepare innocuous emails to the Supervisor and not send them until they saw him come through the door to the floor after the meeting.

He did, and they did. Puzzlement on his face turned to revulsion which turned to anger, which turned to horror when he realized that the puking and splattering that filled the air was coming from his machine. Panic when he was unable to mute the volume, and desperation as he yanked the speaker leads out of the back of the computer.

As Tech Sargent Chen from Galaxy Quest always says:

“It’s the simple things in life you treasure.”

Today on Tommy T’s Mundane musings -Tape Doesn’t Lie!

Well, folks, the Freeperati still haven’t realized that they’ve been Don-conned, so I have this fond memory for you :

Back in my studio engineer days I had a guy come in with a karaoke tape he wanted to sing along to (first one I’d ever seen).

Horrible little low-fi cassette, with his vocals on our good U47 mike laid over it.Okay.

It’s his money.

Then this guy, who is loaded up with bling, proceeds to dance around in the vocal booth. Really. Big moves and all. Like he’s doing a music video.

The bling’s clinking and clanking, his polyester outfit’s whooshing and zzziping like a bedsheet in a whirlwind every time he moves his arms up to frame his face, it’s all being sucked up by the microphone, and since I have to put a ton of compression on him (because he’s dancing around and moving sideways away from, and toward the mic) all the noise he’s making is as loud as his voice (which isn’t very). At several points he spins around, which means that he’s singing at the rear Auralex sound-absorbing wall instead of toward the mike.

Between verses, he’s smacking his tongue against the roof of his mouth and sucking air through his teeth. I can hear the studio owner and a visitor laughing in the next room through the open side door to the control room.

Finally, the guy finishes after several stopped takes, and comes into the control room for the playback. I’m waiting for the explosion – ” What is all that noise?? I don’t sound like that!!” (this is the common reaction of someone actually hearing themselves for the first time on tape, and it doesn’t sound anything like it does when they’re singing in the shower or along with the stereo)

He slaps me on the back and tells me he’s very happy that I captured the essence of his personality.

Tape doesn’t lie.

Today on Tommy T’s Local Yokels – letter of interest

Good people – I’d like to tell you about someone I met yesterday at the Democrats HD65 strategy / committee elections meeting Saturday.

youngsung

His name is Young Sung, and he’s an impressive individual.

MBA, Deacon in his Methodist church, Korean-English translator for dispute resolution, the FBI, and Homeland Security. One of the mainstays behind development of the incredibly successful “H Mart” here in Carrollton (our fair city) Tx.

Endorsed by the Carrollton Fire Fighters Association, the Carrollton Police Officers Association, Ron Branson (former Mayor of Carrollton), Becky Miller (former Mayor of Carrollton), and many others, he ran for a seat on the Carrollton City Council last May.

Guess what happened?

He surged in early voting, and the Tea Party incumbent Anthony Wilder’s re-election was in danger.

Then, this was mailed out to Carrollton voters.

Today on Tommy T’s random musings…

OK guys – I told you that funny stuff at Freeperville is getting harder and harder to find.

Now, it appears to have vanished completely.

I’m taking a unavoidable break from “Obsession” for a while, and am instead gonna subject you to random musings from my Facebook page. Take that.

Oops.  Posted one from last May accidentally.   Here’s a different one:

Today – Nuclear fearmongering, and a modest proposal

I see a lot of hysterical gobspatter over the Iran Nuclear Treaty.

ZOMGtheIraniansAreGoingToBeIncludedInMonitoringOneOfTheSites!!!

 

You know what?

GIVE the Iranians some of OUR nukes.

Go ahead. They’ll come to the same realization that every nuclear power has – that the things are fucking worthless.

Why?

You can’t use them.

They’re hideously expensive tinkertoys that serve no offensive military purpose, other than to try to keep someone (like Israel in this case) from nuking YOU.

 

I’m about as worried about Iran launching an ICBM they don’t have (with a nuclear warhead they don’t have on it) at us as I am of a plane crashing on my house.

Actually, less, as there is a one-in-fifty-million chance of the plane crash.

 

So – let’s say Iran does have nuclear weapons. Weapons they don’t dare launch because the retaliatory strike will make a crater where Tehran used to be, before their missile even lands. See? You can’t USE the damned things.

 

But –but – what about nuclear terrorism?

 

What if Iran slips some of those nuclear weapons they don’t have to a terrorist group?

 

Allow me to introduce you to a term : “Nuclear forensics”.

What does it mean?

It means that there is NO SUCH THING as an anonymous/untraceable nuclear device.

 

If the nuclear device the terrorists don’t have was exploded, and the forensics results pointed to Iran – well – see above.

 

Even if Iran did have a nuclear device, the LAST thing they would do is to give it to someone who would be stupid enough to use it.

 

So – let’s give them some of OUR nukes. They need something non-productive to spend their money on maintaining and guarding.

Trump shares letter from Putin: ‘His thoughts are so correct’
thehill.com ^ | 12/23/16 | Harper Neidig

Posted on 12/23/2016, 1:04:51 PM by ColdOne

President-elect Donald Trump on Friday praised Vladimir Putin and shared a Christmas letter the Russian president sent him.

“A very nice letter from Vladimir Putin; his thoughts are so correct,” Trump said in a statement. “I hope both sides are able to live up to these thoughts, and we do not have to travel an alternate path.”

In the attached letter, Putin emphasized the importance of cooperation between the two countries.

“I hope that after you assume the position of the President of the United States of America we will be able – by acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner – to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a qualitatively new level,” the Russian leader wrote.

Ivanka Trump is meeting Monday with climate change activist and former Vice President Al Gore.

The president-elect’s daughter, who reportedly wants to make global warming one of her signature issues, will meet with Gore at Trump Tower in Manhattan, according to transition spokesman Jason Miller.

The former vice president will not be meeting with the president-elect, Miller said in a conference call with reporters on Monday morning. He would not elaborate on the contents of the meeting.

Libertarians – can’t live with em, can’t bury them in the backyard

OK – for once, a NON Freeper post:

The recent libertarian outbursts in some of the political groups on Facebook started me thinking about the entire libertarian attitude/POV, I don’t do this much, any more than I ponder the viewpoints of the Flat Earth Society, since by numbers they are a tiny minority – a fringe of a fringe, if you will.

Of course their vociferous nature is compensation for their tiny numbers, but the whole thing is amusing, in a watch-someone-slip-on-their-greed-and-fall-down way.

libertarians decry laws, regulations, and the other hand brakes that the civil contract enacts to keep us honest and accountable, but amusingly, only those laws that they disagree with. They pretend that they want to set us free, but only from those things. If there is such a thing as “cafeteria catholics”, I suppose their doppelganger would be the “buffet bourgeoisie” of the libertarian (I would say Libertarian Party, but this silly pretense at unification fell apart in 2006).

So – from the old anarchists came the modern libertarian. Even the old anarchists knew that “Do what thou wilt will be the whole of the law” was not only not original (thank you, Alistair Crowley), but would ultimately make it EXTREMELY hard to hold onto their imagined future gains, since anyone with the wit to lay in wait for them and snuff out their candle and simply TAKE those gains could do so with no penalty. “Buffet bourgeoisie” libertarians do say they want laws against such, but only because it would mess up their Randian utopia.

Real word relevance? I’ll see your Friedman and raise you a Pinochet.

Ron Paul? At least Friedman has a job.

Libertarians would tell you that REAL LIBERTARIAN VALUES have never been applied in the real world. Let’s ship the current leadership of the Von Mises Institute off to Somalia and let them report on that real world progress, shall we?

Bottom line?

For me, it’s that the people who demonstrate the very reasons for laws and regulations are typically very good examples of why we have them.”Fuck you, I’ve got mine” is not the description of a social structure, but a rationalization for greed and the utter and complete lack of a soul.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “Dave’s not here” edition

Good morning, gentle people.

Many thanks to the thousands that read First Draft’s special on the debate!

I’m taking a week off to go and recharge my batteries   This wonderful place in Nacogdoches looks like just the place to do it.

Jude asked me (on the book of faces) if it was full of roaches, and I do intend to stand on the stage  where The Four Nightingales became The Marx Brothers.  Steve Simels – if you’re reading this, I’ll bring back some pics.

As for the place Barbara and I are holing up for the next four days, take a peek :

Bone-us Obsession – the “I can’t take it anymore” Freeper debate thread

I got permission from Ms. A to do a special, because – holy shit.

I’m as partisan as they come, but  – christ on a cracker – what a slaughter that was!

The “I Can’t Take It Anymore” Thread

Let’s hear it from people who can’t take the Clinton/Trump debate any more. I turned it off after 26 minutes.

This whole thing is such a farce. Really, Hillary Clinton has “solutions” for people out of work? SHE’S A SOCIALIST! Any “plan” she has is for MORE GOVERNMENT! Why can’t Trump come out and say that?

Today on Tommy Ts Obsession with the Freeperati -Beaucoup Bonus Birther Bonanza Boogaloo

Well, folks, The Darnold did his hotel commercial   stressed the stage he was on to the point of collapse  slapped the birther wingnuts in the face  last Friday with his non-apology apology.

So – how did that play in Freeperville?  Glad you asked.

You see – it used to be like this (from 2011) :

Trump’s disgusting, dangerous dance with birthers
The Washington Post’s Post Partisan ^ | April 7, 2011 | Jonathan Capehart

Posted on 4/7/2011, 10:50:30 PM by 2ndDivisionVet

Donald Trump (Birther-N.Y.) is at it again. In double-barrelled interviews on NBC’s “Today Show” and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump continued his disgusting and dangerous dabbling in the disproved conspiracy theory that President Obama was not born in the United States. This might be good for the ratings of his television show. This might even be good for his business. But it is terrible for the nation and public discourse that someone who claims to be so smart is so willing to perpetuate a lie.

Alex Koppelman snipped this strand of the conspiracy in Dec. 2008 and again in July 2009. And he’ll most likely have to do it again now that Trump has embraced the fallacy with both hands. This all stemmed from a interview of Sarah Obama, the second wife of the president’s grandfather, by Ron McRae, a street preacher, through a translator over the phone. As Koppelman reported in 2009, “Sarah Obama is not the president’s biological grandmother, but he calls her ‘Granny Sarah.’”

In a clear lost-in-translation moment (and over an international phone line), which you can listen to in full here, Mrs. Obama said she was there for her grandson’s birth. When McRae asks where in Mombassa the president was born, the translator, Vitalis Akech Ogombe, repeatedly corrected him….

Then any law or bill he has ever signed and every person appointed to any position is null and void. All the deficit spending money sent to unions, Acorn and bailouts of Democrat(sic) donors/supporters etc. should then be paid back, in full, to the American taxpayer by the Democrat(sic) party that certified him as being eligible to hold the highest office in our Republic.

Then arrest all conspirators involved for treason and give them swift and final judgment.

To: Jim Robinson

Jim, This is like revisiting history. This was my first introduction to FR back 2008. No one would listen to us. I figure we’ll see justice in history. Obama will become a pariah, a usurper in office. Today, though, all we can do is grimace and just focus on defeating Clinton. The lies, the damage they have both caused America are unforgivable.

Obama is an (Raila) Odinga Kenyan. Everyone knows it. Our old friend Kenny Bunk was a scholar on the subject. He knows it. He got into schools because of it. There’s no question about it. Either you understand the “Birther” (Long form / COLB / hospital) issue… Or you think “trhere’s nothing to it he was born in Hawaii. Trump did scholarship and his own legacy a great disservice today.

Clinton ad ties Trump to KKK, white supremacists

A video released Thursday by Hillary Clinton’s campaign makes the case that Donald Trump is the candidate of racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

“The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in,” a robed man identified as the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan says at the top of the video, followed by images of a Confederate flag fluttering in the wind, Trump waving after a speech, and a man performing a Hitler salute at what appears to be a Trump rally.

OK gang – I’ve beefed up the seals on the iso chamber door, put new rubber walkway covers in, and there is now an emergency shower handle every 15 feet with a “You’ve GOT to be fucking kidding me” sign marking each one. Maybe NOW the RCRA guys will get off my ass.

Let’s get started.

The Freeperati are beginning to freep out since The Darnold’s poll numbers have started going in the shitter.

Is it the skewed polls? The dreaded Em Ess Em? Lord Xenu and the Marcabs? (the name of my next band)

It couldn’t POSSIBLY be that Freepers are a fringe of a fringe, and that the majority of sane people in this country are realizing that Orange Julius is a couple of tacos shy of a combination plate.  No way.

TOM BAUERLE: CAN SATELLITES REPROGRAM VOTING MACHINES?

A fervent prayer that radio talk show host Tom Bauerle and Yours Truly won’t become the ‘dearly departed’ following “mysterious deaths” while walking our dogs, hoisting barbells down at the gym or walking home.

Bauerle is the braver of the two because he is right in the U.S., in graver danger for digging like a terrier at the truth about the satellite-reliant election equipment that may now be being “rigged” to get Hillary Clinton elected as the next U.S. president.
