  1. Fantastic. I get this sense that there are layers of normies who never got the alternative media memo in the late eighties, and who will listen to something from latter day Cronkites which they would reject coming from, say, us.
    Dennis Prager has been very good about the SPLC too. There has been a certain building momentum togetting someone as solidly mainstream as Stossel to do a story. Alexander Cockburn had been attacking them for decades but he’s neither without baggage nor mainstream.

    Agree. The mask has finally slipped.

    OT: very amusing story today in which the official Physician to the President, Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, who is pretty much unimpeachable (appointed by Obama, has been serving in the position for 5 years, 22 years as a Navy doctor, served in Iraq), spent an hour in the White House press room thoroughly blowing up the Lügenpresse's libel about Trump's physical and mental health, and reported Trump to be an extraordinarily healthy and energetic 71 year old.

    http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/16/presidential-doctor-donald-trump-good-genes/

    Money shot, which has had leftists on Twitter tearing their hair out:

    ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl asked Jackson, “Can you explain to me how a guy who eats McDonald’s and fried chicken and all the Diet Cokes and who never exercises is in as good of shape as you say he’s in?”

    The doctor’s blunt answer to the question stunned the reporters in the room:

    “It’s called genetics. Some people have great genes. I told the president if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old. I mean, he has incredible — he has incredible genes. If I didn’t watch what I ate, I wouldn’t have the cardiac and overall health that he has. So he’s very healthy despite those things, and I don’t think that he does that any more. I mean, you know, he’s in the White House now. He’s eating what they’re — what the chefs are cooking for him now, and they’re cooking a much healthier diet for him now. We’re going to continue to work on that, make that even healthier. I would say the answer to your question is he has incredibly good genes, and it’s the way God made him.”

    There's a documentary called Fathead that tries to rebut Supersize Me. If I remember correctly, the subject loses weight eating McDonalds by switching the supersized Cokes in Supersize Me to Diet Cokes.

    Anyway, I doubt Trump had room for McDonalds after all the borscht, stroganoff, solyanka, blinis, etc.

    If anything, the SPLC money-raising apparatus is even more insidious that that of Holy Roller preachers. And it is much funnier, because all those Jews being conned are much better educated than the blacks and white Gentiles who toss much smaller piles of cash at the Holy Roller preachers.

    Of course, if we see the SPLC for the monster it is, we also then are likely to see the ADL for the monster it is.

    You guys need to stop with this. SPLC is funded by the government, corporations, "charities" -- ie, it's mostly your own money that is funding this red guard. They're not called international frugalists for nothing -- they know how to make you pay for your own oppression.

  9. Stossel had a show on FOX which was pretty good. His views were often too libertarian for my taste, but he always had interesting content. A notable highpoint was a segment where he interviewed Roy Spencer and Gavin Schmidt on Global Warming. Schmidt refused to share the stage with Spencer, as it would confer legitimacy on Spencer he thought that Spencer did not deserve. In short, Schmidt behaved like a collossal d*ck. Stossel accomodated Schmidt’s demand in a way that made plain what a jerk he (Schmidt) was being.

  12. It’s a shame Josh Mandel withdrew from the Ohio Senate race. It would have been nice to have a senator who was willing to call out Abe Foxman.

    • Replies: @Maj. Kong
    Mandel is the most despised Republican in Ohio, he underperformed Romney in 2012. His reputation is that of a big-spending liar. He was also the lowest performing Republican in 2014, when the Dems threw in the towel months ahead of the election.

    I'm scratching my head as to why Kasich doesn't want to run for Senate, unless he fears losing the GOP primary. His ego couldn't take being an unimportant freshman with designs on a 2020 primary challenge for the Presidency. Despite all of that, he would be the party's strongest candidate.

    There are those trying to promote JD Vance as a candidate, he should consider running in his adopted state of California. An Egg McMuffin voter cannot and should not win a GOP primary in Ohio.

    Read his thoughts on immigration, he still supports the free market, free movement of people nonsense that even Larry Kudlow has abandoned.

    Yeah, I’d also like to know what he actually said about “free movement of people”. Free markets are a completely different story … what are we a bunch of Commies here?

    I used to like Stossel’s show in which he pointed out all the idiocy in government regulation.

    Maryland GOP voters need to switch their registration to Dem and vote Mr. Manning for Senate in the primary. That would be a nice payback for the Christine O'Donnell fiasco in neighboring Delaware eight years ago.

    It's a shame Josh Mandel withdrew from the Ohio Senate race. It would have been nice to have a senator who was willing to call out Abe Foxman.

    Mandel is the most despised Republican in Ohio, he underperformed Romney in 2012. His reputation is that of a big-spending liar. He was also the lowest performing Republican in 2014, when the Dems threw in the towel months ahead of the election.

    I’m scratching my head as to why Kasich doesn’t want to run for Senate, unless he fears losing the GOP primary. His ego couldn’t take being an unimportant freshman with designs on a 2020 primary challenge for the Presidency. Despite all of that, he would be the party’s strongest candidate.

    There are those trying to promote JD Vance as a candidate, he should consider running in his adopted state of California. An Egg McMuffin voter cannot and should not win a GOP primary in Ohio.

    After 9/11, and the subsequent mass killings conducted by Muslims, I don’t think anyone has to be manipulated into being wary of Muslims. It’s kind of amusing how 9/11 led Muslims in America to be afraid of being slaughtered en masse by the infidel, when the only inter-religious mass killings since have been of Americans by Muslims.

    Agree. The mask has finally slipped.

    OT: very amusing story today in which the official Physician to the President, Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, who is pretty much unimpeachable (appointed by Obama, has been serving in the position for 5 years, 22 years as a Navy doctor, served in Iraq), spent an hour in the White House press room thoroughly blowing up the Lügenpresse's libel about Trump's physical and mental health, and reported Trump to be an extraordinarily healthy and energetic 71 year old.

    http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/16/presidential-doctor-donald-trump-good-genes/

    Money shot, which has had leftists on Twitter tearing their hair out:

    ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl asked Jackson, “Can you explain to me how a guy who eats McDonald’s and fried chicken and all the Diet Cokes and who never exercises is in as good of shape as you say he’s in?”

    The doctor’s blunt answer to the question stunned the reporters in the room:

    “It’s called genetics. Some people have great genes. I told the president if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old. I mean, he has incredible — he has incredible genes. If I didn’t watch what I ate, I wouldn’t have the cardiac and overall health that he has. So he’s very healthy despite those things, and I don’t think that he does that any more. I mean, you know, he’s in the White House now. He’s eating what they’re — what the chefs are cooking for him now, and they’re cooking a much healthier diet for him now. We’re going to continue to work on that, make that even healthier. I would say the answer to your question is he has incredibly good genes, and it’s the way God made him.”
     

    Trump vindicated once again.

    Everything Stossel said has already been covered by Conservatism Inc or even mainstream publications. There isn't an excuse for a donor not knowing about the SPLC by now. They just don't care.

    Maybe you’re not aware, but most people do not have an iSteve level of interest in non-profits and policy advocacy of the likes of SPLC. Stossel’s report is one that needs to be repeated every so often for the many uninitiated, if only because the lapdog, ankle-biting media keeps validating SPLC by citation.

    Millions in offshore accounts in notorious tax-dodging havens Caymans and BVI? And $400k+ salaries for the head honchos?

    The thing stinks to high heaven. These facts need to be repeated again and again.

    SPLC is a tax-exempt 501-c (3). What taxes are they dodging? Why can’t they keep off-shore accounts? Who should determine the salaries they pay?

    No one said they "can't keep off-shore accounts" or "salaries should be regulated." That's your absurd absolute hallucination. There's no law against those things, nor should there be.

    The SPLC represents itself the paragon and arbiter of morality and goodness. They have accumulated great treasure and power.

    Given that, it's quite reasonable and proper to ask why does a non-profit need a $100 million dollar cash hoard presumably collected in the USA and moved to offshore accounts in notorious tax havens beyond the reach of American law enforcement? Why are the leaders paid outrageous salaries?
