  • Here's What Malls Looked Like Back in the '50s

    Shopping malls have always been a hangout for bored teenagers or families looking for something to do on a rainy day. They've probably also been around a lot longer than you might think. Long before Americans made malls their own, residents of ancient Rome met in the marketplace to buy goods and catch up on the latest gossip. In Victorian times, arcades with covered walkways became the precursors to today's malls. With the rise of the suburbs and automobile culture in the mid-20th century, what's generally accepted as the first enclosed mall in the country opened near Minneapolis in 1956....
  • Unpopular French Senators, and Piece of Sh*t Engages in Projection

    Delightful Peter isn’t satisfying his voters back home. – It turns out that running fake Twitter accounts and bashing the sitting President who easily won your state in 2016 is not a great strategy. A new poll of Utah voters shows the state’s creepy Twitter lurking Senator is now underwater with his constituents by a 46-51% margin. Not earth-shattering, but also not optimal, and it’s important to note that this poll was taken before Romney’s creepy nom de plume was revealed for all to be repelled by on Monday. But Pierre Delecto, aka Creepy Uncle Mitt, did not run for...

    Democrats are running exploratory committees that are set up so as to curtail President Trump, the White House, and others their due process rights so that Democrats can gather information and engage in whatever actions or endeavors they desire while intentionally denying the same to Trump. The question remains: is this illegal or immoral and unethical? Republicans like Lindsey Graham, Cruz, etc, need to get on TV 24/7 and explain to Americans that this is at the very least immoral and unethical behavior on the part of Democrats, they aren't going to going along with it, and the Senate will...

    What we are witnessing with such gems of hysterical mendacity are the pathetic death throes of a discredited political franchise and its rapidly disintegrating narrative.If you haven’t had your daily dose of petulant surreality, swivel over to read this astounding editorial at what used to be America’s paper of record. This curious effusion warns that “The G.O.P. will not be able to postpone a reckoning on Donald Trump’s presidency for much longer.”Oh, dear. Are things as bad as that? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. And you know that it is really serious because the cri de coeur not only...

    “Times have changed and they will continue to change. Avoiding victimization is your personal responsibility and how you choose to react to situations can have a very meaningful impact on the outcome for yourself and others. As Americans and New Mexicans, we are very resilient, resourceful people who always find a way to rise to the occasion and triumph. I have no doubt we will continue to do so. God bless those who have suffered and God bless those who have risen up to defend the defenseless.”

    The greatest carpetbagging atrocity since the Bush clan moved to Texas has occurred at Whataburger. The patties are thinner,the buns are smaller and overall they taste like schiff. If you replaced their fancy new wrapper with Micky D's you couldn't tell the difference except maybe they're worse. Boycott 'em and drive them into bankruptcy for the good of the state and it's citizens.

    Why should the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee get a pass? – No one is more frustrated with the empty promises of Lindsey Graham than I am. The Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who must stand for re-election to his South Carolina Senate seat in 2020, has spent this entire year rushing before the nearest TV camera to make empty promise after empty promise about his plans to force people to testify before his committee. He’s done this so many times, he has become the Senate’s version of the boy who cried wolf. It’s to the point now...

    Hey, remember when there were not one, but two fake whistleblowers? – I do. It was just, like, 10 days ago, right? So, what happened to them? Where did all that 24-hour a day fake news coverage of them disappear to? What happened to the promises from Bug-Eyes Schiff that the first fake whistleblower would be testifying before his fake Intelligence Committee posthaste? Hey, I know: The narrative changed, so the goal posts had to shift with along with it. The trusty news-fakers over at CNN gave up that ghost Monday afternoon with a piece titled “Democrats see impeachment proceedings...
  • The Problem with Elizabeth Warren’s Wealth-Tax Plan

    The Mises Institute ^ | 10/21/2019 | Germinal G. Van
    Elizabeth Warren is among the strongest contenders and Democratic hopefuls for the presidential election of 2020. During the fourth Democratic debate, on October 15, her “Wealth Tax Plan” received close attention as to how it could reduce income inequality in the United States.The central argument of Warren's the wealth-tax proposal is this: through a progressive wealth tax system — which means those with more wealth will pay higher tax rates — the wealthiest people in America will pay their “fair share” and that fair share will enable the equal redistribution of wealth. Set forth by French economists Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel...

    The fake news outlets are taking turns parroting the Coup Cabal’s talking points. – Saturday was the New York Times day, and Sunday, it was NBC’s turn at the fake news bar as the Coup Cabal continues to try to build an exculpatory narrative in advance of the release of the Horowitz report. We’ve seen this repeatedly over the past few years, as America’s fake news media continues to toady for its Democrat masters. NBC News started its shilling right at the top, with a hilariously-slanted headline: “AG Barr expands mysterious review into origin of Russia investigation.” Oooooohhhh, it’s all...

    Powerline ^ | 21 Oct 2019 | Paul Mirengof
    The Baltimore Orioles were down three games to one to the New York Mets entering Game Five of the 1969 World Series. The Orioles thus needed to win three straight games. The previous year, the Detroit Tigers had overcome a three games to one deficit against the St. Louis Cardinals. However, that was only the third time in the history of the World Series this had been accomplished. The Orioles could take heart from the fact that during the regular season they had won three straight games or more 17 times. Indeed, in the ALCS they had taken three straight...
  • Hi, I’m Mitt Romney, aka Delightful Peter!

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Maybe we should start calling him Creepy Uncle Mitt. – I kid you not, that headline is for real, folks. Mitt Romney, the RINO di tutti RINOs, was revealed on Sunday as having used a fake Twitter account under the name Pierre Delecto. If you think that’s weird, well, you’re right, but it get weirder. According to various online dictionaries, the latin word “delecto” has a variety of meanings. Those meanings include “[verb] delight, please, amuse, fascinate; charm, lure, entice; be a source of delight. Thus, Pierre Delecto translated into English most commonly means Peter Delight, or Delightful Peter. That...

    The Houston Courant ^ | October 21st, 2019 | K. Schleicher
    Our founding fathers fully understood the gravity and polarizing effect of the impeachment process. Alexander Hamilton warned us of the subsequent divide resulting from political warfare. He predicted a fragmenting in our nation and animosities among its people. Political manipulations and misinformation leave an offensive aftertaste, yet America and her endless possibilities remain enticing. The tasteless Russian collusion investigation left the ravenous democrats empty and hungry for revenge. Two plus years of waiting on the edge of their seat for satisfaction, the democrats experienced just the smell of validation, like a cookie scented candle. Starvation drives seemingly sane people to...
  • Greenland needs new jobs and foreign labour

    The Nordic Labour Journal ^ | October 18, 2019 | Marie Preisler
    There is an urgent need to create new jobs in Greenland’s mining and tourism industries. At the same time more foreign labour is needed, say the social partners. Cutters and trawlers in Northern Greenland are catching fish and prawns in such numbers that the Greenlandic economy is close to overheating. The fisheries fairytale has triggered a veritable construction boom in the capital Nuuk, where cranes and new builds shoot into the sky everywhere, while house prices do the same. It has become difficult to live in the capital unless you earn a lot of money. Meanwhile, Greenland’s fish processing plants,...

    If you pay close attention to the fake reporting of the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and a few other Deep State fake news organizations, you can easily see how the FBI/CIA/State Department goons who choreographed the three year “Russia Collusion” fantasy play are trying to manipulate the public narrative in advance of the release of the Horowitz Report and the slow-rolling Barr/Durham investigation. A piece published by the Times on Saturday serves as a prime example. The report, written by Adam Goldman and William Rashbaum, two of the most reliable deep state mouthpieces in the media, is chock-full...

    On Friday, news broke that Hillary Clinton called Tulsi Gabbard a "Russian asset," and Hillary believes the Russians are now grooming Gabbard to run as a third-party candidate in 2020. Hillary also said that Jill Stein, the Green Party's nominee for President in 2016, was similarly a Russian asset who was responsible for Hillary's loss to President Trump. [Jill] Stein responded during an interview on CNN, characterizing Clinton's accusations as "a completely unhinged conspiracy theory for which there is absolutely no basis in fact." She continued, "this is a wild and insulting theory, and I think it speaks to Hillary's...

    U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued six Haitian nationals attempting to cross the Rio Grande River near the Del Rio Port of Entry. Two of the six rescued were children under the age of one. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) says that Border Patrol agents in the nearby area observed a group of individuals struggling to cross the Rio Grande River. The agents maneuvered a patrol vessel towards the group and helped pull the six people from the water. The Haitian nationals were then taken to the Del Rio Border Patrol Station for processing. According to a press release from...

    The national media blasted President Trump’s withdrawal of 50 US military advisors from the Syrian border with Turkey as a “sellout,” a “betrayal” and a “huge strategic blunder.”Let’s be clear: None of them truly care about the Kurds. Otherwise, they would have been sending correspondents and camera crews to Rojava, as the Kurds call northern Syria, on a regular basis.[....]I have met with Kurdish political and military leaders in the region, including the PYD, the political arm of the Kurdish YPG militia. And while they were thrilled to have US backing in the fight against ISIS, none of them had...
