Progressive lawyer Boudin wins San Francisco’s DA race By DAISY NGUYEN

Progressive lawyer Boudin wins San Francisco’s DA race. By DAISY NGUYEN
'm not sure how it gets any worse than this. A child of literally murderous radicals gets raised by the also violent radical partners of his parents, immersed from birth in radicalism and contempt for this nation, wins an election to be in charge of a major city's justice system. Among his major priorities are to "protect immigrants from deportation and pursue accountability in police misconduct cases". In the city where so famously a multiply deported "immigrant" shot and killed a young woman, yet suffered no real penalty at all for it. And I bet every San Francisco cop is now wondering about early retirement or transferring somewhere else, since they now have the feeling of a target on their backs not just from local criminals but the DA's office. It's going to be interesting to continue to watch SF slide ever further towards chaos. But people voted him in, and as Jefferson once said, in a democracy you get the government you deserve. --Del

U.S. Offers Up to $4 Million for Location of Freed Guantánamo Convict
Excerpt: The United States government on Thursday offered a $4 million reward for information on the whereabouts of a Sudanese man who was convicted of war crimes at Guantánamo, was repatriated in 2012 and is suspected of recruiting for Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen. It is believed to be the first case of the United States offering a reward for the whereabouts of a prisoner released from Guantánamo by the Obama administration.

Andrew McCarthy: THIS is the impeachment question

Andrew McCarthy: THIS is the impeachment question
Excerpt: Is it an impeachable offense? That is the question of the hour. On “Fox News Sunday,” Chris Wallace pressed it on Republican Congressman Will Hurd of Texas. It is a question every Republican supporter of President Trump should be prepared to answer. Democrats, by contrast, determined that the president was impeachable before he ever darkened the Oval Office door; it’s not worth asking them since their answer preexisted any real or imagined occasion for posing the question. It is, of course, the question that must be asked. That does not make it a fair question. It is unfair because it assumes a fact that is not in evidence, namely: that we have a working definition of an impeachable offense on which there is agreement – or at least something close to consensus. We don’t. [This question goes directly to the heart of the matter. It has bearing on the prior impeachments of both Johnson and Clinton, both of which failed in the Senate, just as this one is likely to do, if passed by the House. There may well be no possible “all-inclusive” definition of an impeachable crime since the goal posts will move with every election. Ron P.]

Interesting Take on Electric Cars

Interesting Take on Electric Cars
As one of those obsessive-compulsive science types, I always wondered about the bottom line for electric cars, that is, first, cost per mile, and second, driving range. This article answers those questions. Here's a simple bottom line for people to consider. Everything we do requires energy. Where does energy come from? First, for all of recorded and a lot of unrecorded history, burning things. Secondly, wind power for sails, etc, then water power for turning mill wheels, etc. You might include solar power, in the sense of using sunlight to dry things, like salt basins. In more recent times, a bit of energy from geothermal, but the big difference from modern science is nuclear power. Power from sunlight making electricity is another new one, but not a huge game changer. When you need power that's transportable, like vehicles, what are your options? Well, you could go for batteries, but they tend to be heavy, which means you just added to the load you want to move, which means you need more energy to move it. You can manage this with land vehicles, but not with aircraft. As I once posted on a forum of fanatic ban-fossil-fuel activists, there is never going to be a 747 plane that takes off using batteries. (They subsequently banned me from the forum for "making people uncomfortable"- you can see they were truly modern Liberals.) Well, if you want to pack energy as efficiently as possible, what are your choices? Not batteries, not wound up springs, not compressed air, they all have too many limitations if you just want to drive a car long distance. The most concentrated form of energy (other than nuclear fuel and concentrated chemical explosives) is in the form of liquid hydrocarbons that you can burn in controlled explosions using the oxygen in the air. The 15 gallon gas tank in the car contains far more energy than a battery of the same weight, and besides, refueling time for the gas tank is a few minutes, while for the battery it's several hours. The electricity to charge the car battery has to be generated somewhere, if by combustion with some energy loss, then transmitted long distance through a power grid, with more energy loss. So the cost per unit energy that drives the vehicle has to go up and unless the kilowatts are coming from nuclear, solar, or wind power, plenty of CO2 got generated anyhow. So electric vehicles appear to be one of those ideas that sounds great, but the reality doesn't quite meet the ideal. Anyhow, take a look at the article below, see what you think. --Del

It just gets worse

Judicial Watch: White House Visitor Logs Detail Meetings of Eric Ciaramella. Logs Also Show DNC Contractor Who Allegedly Worked with Ukraine to Investigate Trump/Manafort Visited Obama White House 27 times
This just keeps getting more interesting. At what point do the Democrats realize they can't hide this guy anymore, and he's going to have to testify in public, or be discounted as just another political agent? If it is he, and it sure seems that way, I hope he gets boiled alive for this crap. I still can't get over the rationale that "the President is subverting foreign policy", it needs to be screamed out on TV and in giant type on the newspapers "the President cannot SUBVERT foreign policy, the President is responsible for MAKING foreign policy". As Obama did, in ways that many of us disliked intensely, and anyone is free to dislike intensely Trump's policy too. But like it or not, he gets to do that, get over it. --Del

... “I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans. they, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions.

FIRED FBI DIRECTOR COMEY LIKELY DOCTORED HIS MEMOS

FIRED FBI DIRECTOR COMEY LIKELY DOCTORED HIS MEMOS IN EFFORT TO TAKE DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE US SENATE MAY HAVE THE EVIDENCE. By Pamela Geller - on November 3, 2019

The Military-Intelligence Complex

The Military-Intelligence Complex
Excerpt: Had any of the current generals said anything similar about President Obama in the fashion they now routinely attack Trump, their public careers would have been ruined. There would have been Adam Schiff-like progressive congressional inquiries about the current status of the code of military conduct as it pertains, not to quite legitimate political editorialization, but rather to “contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State . . . ”  Attacking Trump in “contemptuous” fashion is not speaking truth to power but a confirmation of the existing status quo of the media, progressive orthodoxy, and the general Washington bipartisan bureaucracy.  The result is that many retired high-ranking officers have made the necessary adjustments. Many have gone well beyond legitimately articulating why Trump may be wrong on foreign policy, and now feel free to malign, insult, and even dream of removing their commander-in-chief, on the grounds that Trump is sui generis, that the media will applaud their efforts, and that the bipartisan foreign-policy establishment will canonize their deep-state bravery. [In the body of this excellent essay, Hanson makes reference to a now-nearly-forgotten 1964 movie called “7 Days in May.” (If you haven’t seen it, you ought to.) I think that’s a little extreme, but only a little. In the minds of many of those on the left, they may well see that as the most direct solution, ignoring what it would do to the fabric of the nation. This is not a door we want to open. Remember that what one side does now WILL be repeated later by the other side. Ron P.]

Nancy Pelosi’s Impeachment Banana Republic

Nancy Pelosi’s Impeachment Banana Republic
Excerpt: But unlike real republics, this one is not designed to defeat the singular bane of democracy that our Founders dreaded, that inevitable dynamic of unchecked majority rule that they most feared—namely, “majority faction.” Rather, it is designed to enshrine it. It is an audition for the California-style, one-party government that Pelosi hopes to sell to the American people in 2020 on the basis of its frightening efficiency—not to mention her personal cleverness in sticking it to Trump. And they can get away with it because the Constitution says “the House shall have sole power of Impeachment.” There really aren’t clear rules about precisely how the House of Representatives has to perform this function. So it’s all the more important to see precisely how the House engages its duty in each case. If you take a step back and consider the actual process described in the resolution, the House Democrats are driving a Mack truck through the impeachment clause and attempting something so politically ambitious, one is almost impressed by their diabolical genius. [This is an upsetting way to look at the whole “impeachment process.” That it might be correct should be shocking, but it won’t be. Ron P.]

The Last Trusted Prosecutor in Washington

The Last Trusted Prosecutor in Washington
Excerpt: John Durham may be the most consequential and least known figure in Washington right now. In May, U.S. attorney general William Barr selected Durham, a longtime prosecutor with a résumé so sterling it nearly glows, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether it was properly predicated. (...) By 2000, Durham had built a reputation as one of the country’s best prosecutors, and he got the call from FBI director Louis Freeh and Attorney General Janet Reno to handle one of the Department of Justice’s most infamous cases: the claim that FBI agents had protected notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, even as Bulger continued to commit violent crimes. This was a jaw-dropping tale of corruption that later inspired the film The Departed and was also dramatized in Black Mass. U.S. Attorney Donald Stern had recommended Durham for the job, and he told the Associated Press in an interview years later, “We didn’t go to Washington with a list. We went to Washington and said, ‘We want John Durham to do it.’"  John Le Carré wrote in The Russia House, ‘Some things are necessary evils, some things are more evil than necessary.’ That is the fundamental question of what was going on in Boston,” Durham said in his lecture at the University of St. Joseph. The Boston scandal represented the Bureau’s nightmare scenario. FBI special agent John Connolly Jr. had grown up in South Boston with mobsters James “Whitey” Bulger and Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi, as well as Whitey Bulger’s younger brother William Bulger, who was elected to the state house in 1960 and state senate in 1970. [Jim Geraghty has written what is likely the longest in-depth profile of Durham ever produced. This almost reads like a thriller you’d expect to have John Grisham or Tom Clancy listed as the author, but it’s all true and verifiable. Amazingly, Durham was even praised by AG Eric Holder. You really do want to read this. Ron P.]

Right to Confrontation: The Latest Bogus Legal Argument over the ‘Whistleblower’

Right to Confrontation: The Latest Bogus Legal Argument over the ‘Whistleblower’
Excerpt: If there is a prosecution in court, the Justice Department has various disclosure obligations that take precedence over a witness’s interest in remaining anonymous. Whistleblowers who are essential witnesses in criminal prosecutions do not get to remain anonymous. (...) The law imposes this highly qualified confidentiality requirement only on the ICIG. It does not bind other government officials, much less members of Congress, the media, and the public. The point of the law is to shield whistleblowers from reprisals (being fired, demoted, denied promotion, transferred to Anchorage, etc.), not from public identification. The posturing on this point has been patently political. If we were dealing with actual classified information that could compromise a significant national-security program, the media would breathlessly reveal it and lecture us about the public’s “right to know” newsworthy information. And when the whistleblower complaint first emerged, it was impeachment impresario Adam Schiff himself who insisted that the whistleblower had to be brought forward to testify.  (...) The confrontation clause protects only the accused at a criminal trial. The point is that before one’s liberty is taken away, one must have the opportunity to question one’s accusers. Impeachment, however, is not even a legal proceeding, much less a criminal trial. It is a political proceeding. [Sometimes, it’s easy to be distracted from what is really going on. McCarthy is metaphorically reminding us that we aren’t baking a cake, we’re building a tree-house. It’s necessary to keep in mind what’s really going on. I added emphasis. Ron P.]

Trump awards posthumous Presidential Citizens Medal to Sept. 11 hero Rick Rescorla

Trump awards posthumous Presidential Citizens Medal to Sept. 11 hero Rick Rescorla
Excerpt: "We were all sitting in our holes with our knees knocking, we have dead guys all around us, and here comes Rick singing Cornish songs," Sam Fantino, who served with Rescorla in the battle of la Drang near the Cambodian border, said in 2015 when a conference center at Fort Hood, Texas was dedicated in Rescorla's name, according to Military.com. After the first plane hit the towers on 9/11, Rescorla ordered Morgan Stanley employees to get out of the South Tower and ignore building announcements telling people to stay at their desks. As he directed workers in the stairwells, Rescorla went right on singing his hymns. One of Rescorla’s last phone calls was to his close friend, Dan Hill, who he had known since his days in Rhodesia. Rescorla told Hill to get to New York to help with the aftermath of the attack. Rescorla then resumed singing a hymn, Hill told the New Yorker magazine in 2002. [Rescorla was a genuine hero several times over. He was prominently mentioned in the book ‘We Were Soldiers Once, and Young.' In fact, the photograph on the book’s cover is a picture of him. During the evacuation of his people from the Twin Towers, he has been credited with saving the lives of over 2500 people. He was residing in Morristown, NJ at the time of his death. There is a really good write up about him at Histornet at this link: https://www.historynet.com/rick-rescorla-hero-of-ia-drang-and-the-twin-towers.htm There were also some good magazine articles at the time. Read what you can about this guy. It’s inspiring. Ron P.] (I have read his wife's book, "Heart of a Soldier." Great book, worth reading. ~Bob)

The Pledge

I was MC at a symposium on the Viet Nam war history today, but after we opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, I told the audience the following story. One of them asked me later if I would send her a copy of it, because she wanted to send it to others to think about. I don't know how many others might like to see or use it, but here it is, just in case. --Del
============================================================
I do guest lectures at high schools, and last Spring I was in a classroom when the Pledge of Allegiance was recited over the PA system. The teacher and students stood to say it, as did I. But one student in the front row remained sitting and did not take part, and I looked right at her for a moment. Later on she came up to me to explain that she meant no disrespect to me, so I said thanks for that, but why did she not take part? She said because she cannot be a hypocrite. I asked how is it hypocrtical to say the Pledge? She replied that we do not in fact have "liberty and justice for all", so it's a false and
hypocritical thing to say. I thought for a second and then said "Of course you are correct, we did not have perfect liberty and justice for all in 1776, or anytime since, and not today, and not any day in the near future. But then again, what nation now, or at any time in the past, has ever had perfect liberty and
justice for all? None, not ever. We are mere human beings, such perfection is beyond us, the question for us is never about attaining perfection, it is always about achieving good. What we say in the Pledge is not some arrogant claim of our perfection, it is rather a statement of our ideals, what we believe in, what we have been committed to and working towards for all our existence. We have been making steady
progress towards that ideal over the centuries, through the work and sacrifices of so many. And we are a good nation, with all our flaws, defects, mistakes, we still have far more positive in our history than negative, more cause to have respect, affection, and even love of our country than we have for regret or shame. So we need to understand that, and as Americans be glad to stand and say the Pledge with conviction and pride."

55 years ago today

Fifty-five years ago today, I graduated from MCRD Parris Island and earned the title “Marine.” I have carried it ever since; I hope with honor and courage. That day, after 11 weeks, I said goodbye to my Drill Instructors, Sergeant William H. Harris (Senior DI), Sergeant Michael P. (PT) Martin, and the late Sergeant Ezekiel Owens, Jr. I never saw them again, but I did talk to Sgt. Owens twice on the phone, and sent him copies of the books I dedicated to my DIs. He died in 2013, a week or so before I had my lung transplant. I was with 11 weeks, and they’ve been with me every day since. They taught me to accept responsibility for my actions and to focus on the mission and get the job done. They gave me resiliency, tenacity and self-discipline. Because of my DIs, I’ve had a long, happy, and successful life. I thank God for them every day. ~Bob

Difficult to overstate the miserable state that Obama and Biden left this country in

Saagar Enjeti: Difficult to overstate the miserable state that Obama and Biden left this country in
Excerpt: Former Vice President Joe Biden's handlers, they let him out of his private airplane yesterday to do a rare campaign rally in Fort Dodge, Iowa. I suffered through most of it so that you wouldn't have to, and I really have to tell you how shocking it is. It’s literally like being transported back to the year 1999. The rhetoric and policy proposals are exactly the same; the only difference is he says something along the lines of how this election is, quote "a battle for the soul of this nation." The rally just completely lacked the self-awareness and the reflection for any person who wants to hold the oval office in the year 2020. Biden remarked on terrible things in American life, as if he has had no role whatsoever in crafting the policies that lead to these terrible things in the first place. Take this lamentation on the state of the middle class. Further on, he says quote, "I'm determined to give the middle class a real shot in this country. If we ever lose that, we begin to lose the soul of the country. It’s about who we are. I mean, who wants to tell him folks? How exactly did the middle class get into trouble? It is absolutely stunning that one of the politicians most responsible for our current plight has the gall to express concern for those he took a direct role in hurting. Biden is, of course, behind the 2005 effort to strip bankruptcy protections for millions of Americans. Protections they probably could have used when the bottom fell out of the economy in 2008.

Examining the House Impeachment Inquiry Resolution

Examining the House Impeachment Inquiry Resolution
Excerpt: 7) Whether the proceedings ultimately will be seen as open and transparent will depend in large part on whether the heretofore secret proceedings are disclosed. Significantly, the resolution allows for that, but does not require it. The issue is placed in the discretion of Chairman Schiff. This is part of what I referred to at the start as the resolution’s flaws. Schiff is a notoriously sharp-elbowed partisan, the protégé Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) placed in charge of implementing the unauthorized (by a House vote) inquiry practices of closed hearings and selective leaking. The question of disclosing transcripts will be a good early test of how straight Chairman Schiff is going to play this. The resolution empowers him to decide what should be made public, and to direct “appropriate redactions” for not only any classified information but anything he decides is too “sensitive” to be disclosed. 8) With that as a concrete example of what’s at stake, we should pause to deal with the central procedural issue. Republicans continue validly to complain about the rigged process. Whether it will be rigged going forward, though, depends on how committed Schiff and, ultimately, Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) are to open proceedings that both are and appear to be fair. It is not frivolous for Republicans to grouse that the future open proceedings with due process are tainted by the month of closed proceedings without due process, which has made impeachment a foregone conclusion. But the procedural argument won’t win the day, and Democrats still have to make their case to the public, no matter how one-sided things have been to this point.  I am not without hope that there will be real due process in the public hearings — not because hardcore partisans Schiff and Nadler will suddenly transform into paragons of fairness, but because it is in their interest to be fair. [The excerpt is from a 12-point overview of the resolution passed by the House yesterday. McCarthy’s take makes a lot of sense and points out the built-in booby traps awaiting the Republicans and the public. Ron P.]

Spooky Halloween asteroid flyby one of the closest near misses ever seen
Excerpt: A near-Earth asteroid currently identified as C0PPEV1 was spotted in the early morning hours Thursday by the Catalina Sky Survey, based in Arizona, and shortly thereafter by New Mexico's Magdalena Ridge Observatory and Arizona's Mt. Lemmon Steward Observatory. According to data from these early observations, the asteroid came closer to the surface of our planet (without actually colliding with our atmosphere) than any other close approach in NASA's database of known near-Earth objects. Simulations show the asteroid passing above southern Africa within 3,852 miles (6,200 km) at the moment of closest approach, around 7:45 a.m. PT. To get an idea of how close this is, consider that many telecommunications satellites orbit at an altitude of 22,236 miles (35,786 km).
