    Historical Pictures Thread

    Curious. I'm assuming this photo is about this news story or one similar. https://lakewood.advocatemag.com/2015/01/26/cafe-bonnie-parker-worked-new-restaurant/ I guess the question is if the woman above is THIS woman below...

    "Pigs" Have A Hard Job

    Oregon jail inmates drunk on hand sanitizer escape work crew on ATV, deputies say https://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2018/11/oregon_jail_inmates_drunk_on_h.html It's not clear from the sheriff's office how much hand sanitizer Turre and McCallister drank nor if the other two inmates drank any. The amount of alcohol in hand sanitizer ranges from 45 percent to 95 percent, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers. Wine has 10 percent to 15 percent alcohol, and beer contains 5 to 10 percent. ... The deputy in charge of supervising the inmates noticed McCallister and Turre were missing around 11:25 a.m. and saw the gate had been forced open. Someone later called 911 and reported seeing the duo speeding in the area on the ATV and riding in circles, the sheriff's office said.

    "Pigs" Have A Hard Job

    Although comical looking, you'd think SUV driver @ 0:25 would have done something more proactive like ramming the shooter's car door, trapping him instead of reversing away.
  5. Oh God, the WW1 ceremonies. Another red letter day for the the Left and media. The White House pilots don't want to fly marine 1 to the ceremonies because visibility is too low and the Secret Service nixxed the idea of driving a Presidential Convoy through the narrow roads to get to Bellau Wood. And the Leftists and media start REEEEEEE'ing about Trump being afraid of the rain. Literally 8 hours later, the President appears in the pouring rain at Suresnes. *Silence* There is literally no way to have an adult conversation with the political Left and most of the media.
  6. It's because the "caravan" has splintered into smaller groups. As has literally been reported on the news several days ago. Admittedly the coverage has been reduced, what with news about a certain fire, a trip to France, a shitlord at CNN scrabbling over a microphone with a female intern knocking it down a bit.
  7. I literally just listened to a report on the radio about the caravan reaching the San Diego border, climbing on the fence, and assaulting immigration agents by throwing bottles and debris at them. @Belesarius Posse comitatus. And that governs the military's role in law enforcement regarding American citizens. Not doing its actual duty by patrolling the border so foreign invaders can't cross. Legally, it is akin to when the US Cavalry was used to prevent Poncho Villa from crossing over the border.
  8. Literally front page, above the fold headlines yesterday
  9. I guess he's qualified to be the Attorney General for minnesota.

    General news thread

    Forest fires are named after their point of origin, namely Camp Creek Road in this instance. https://www.sfgate.com/california-wildfires/article/Why-is-it-called-Camp-Fire-name-Butte-County-destr-13380824.php I don't know why it's not the "Camp Creek Fire". ... Also, you'll hear about "Complex" fires which are generally multiple different fires that have merged into one.
  11. Hillary Will Run Again Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination. https://www.wsj.com/articles/hillary-will-run-again-1541963599 Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House. ... But Mrs. Clinton’s transformation during the primaries, especially on social and cultural issues, cost her an easy win against Donald Trump. As Hillary 3.0 catered to the coastal elites who had eluded her in 2008, Mr. Trump stole many of the white working-class voters who might have been amenable to the previous version. Finally she had the full support of the New York Times and the other groups that had shunned her for Mr. Obama—but only at the cost of an unforeseen collapse in support in the Midwest. ... The generation of Democrats who have been waiting to take over the party from the Clintons will be fuming that she is back and stealing their show. But they revealed themselves to be bungling amateurs in the Brett Kavanaugh nomination fight, with their laughable Spartacus moments. She will trounce them. Just as Mr. Trump cleared the field, Mrs. Clinton will take down rising Democratic stars like bowling pins. Mike Bloomberg will support her rather than run, and Joe Biden will never be able to take her on. ...

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    Good Guy With A Gun in Seattle helps apprehend shit-stain who stabbed ex-girlfriend to death near the Space Needle (the Seattle Center). Background behind the event and his decision as to why he became a CPL carrier here. http://mynorthwest.com/1179134/man-who-held-off-seattle-center-killer/ ... As for the video itself. This is what you can expect in Seattle. People wandering around obliviously while a murderer with bloody hands is waving a bloody knife around, while a guy holding a handgun is trying to detain him. And the useless rent-a-cops in the video were as worthless as tits on a boar hog. And yeah, that was a rent-a-cop on a fucking Segway. Also look at the moron with the mace, who was lucky he was stabbed to death. Which shows you how effective that shit is. Further observation, Good Guy With The Gun did the right thing by immediately putting his gun on the ground when the Seattle Police finally decided to show up.

    European Union common defense thread

    I believe Loooser is talking about the Soviets pulling out of the Warsaw Pact countries a couple years before the whole Soviet Union broke up, implying that the US would break apart as a Federal republic after it leaves NATO. @Oedipus Wreckx-n-Effect I’m not disparaging the notion of the country breaking apart. It was a fear of our Founding Fathers and almost happened a couple times in our history. But I doubt the political or economic downfall of the US will be brought about by asking that our NATO allies actually fulfill their treaty obligations by contributing to the alliance militarily or financially, a task they’ve shirked now for almost three decades.
