The Border Surge Continues, And No One's Doing Anything
— Ace

Over 10,000 unaccompanied minors have been caught at the border in the past two months, compared to around 5,500 in the first two months of this year.

Rubio, meanwhile, continues trying to wriggle free of the amnesty noose he put around his own neck, trying a new tact: Hey, sure, my Senate version of the Gang of Eight proposal sucked, but that's just because the Senate was controlled by Harry Reid.

I was counting on the House to put all the stuff into the bill that I couldn't!

Here's what our own Drew says about that bullshit: It's bullshit.


Rubio inteded the Gang of Eight to pass in the House as written in the Senate. As AllahPundit asks, how could Rubio believe that the Democrat-held Senate would approve the alleged "tough border provisions" he secretly wanted in the bill, just because now the House was asking for them, when the Senate was dead against them?

On what planet was a more conservative immigration bill somehow going to pass the House and Senate? As Rubio says, Democrats controlled the Senate at that point with 54 votes. The Gang of Eight was a reflection of the reality that only a delicate bipartisan compromise with goodies for both sides (but mainly for liberals) could possibly hope to reach 60 votes, which it did. Anything that came back from the House with some of the Democratic treats, like a path to citizenship, stripped out would have been DOA in the Senate.

AllahPundit points out that Ted Cruz tried to make the bill tougher in the Senate, but his amendments were blocked-- by Rubio's hand, as a matter of fact.

The only reason it didn't pass the House, as written, was because the Revolt Against the Establishment then began in earnest.

As I keep saying, Rubio's lies are the most optimistic, youthful, and forward-looking lies of any candidate this race.

3 Oh, yeah, illegal immigration. Duh. Obamas trying to get as many Democrats-to-be in the country as possible. And the Republicans will not stop it. Possibly maybe Trump will build a yuge wall if/when he wins. Probably won't happen though, and this "migration" will continue until ... well, forever.

Like or hate Trump, this has been his signature campaign issue.  If he does not make a great effort to accomplish some kind of REAL border control, he might get lynched.

People are mad,  really mad.  People say all kinds of unsolicited stuff to me about how MAD they are about the border, Obama,  etc.  The Magic Negro gets little overt public pushback, but there is no widespread respect or admiration for him.

There is a level of unmeasured, underground  RAGE in this country that really no one in the Media has any feel for.

40 The white population of the US is now at 65pct down from 78pct in 1965 so I'm guessing this will continue until it's at least under 60pct.

89 "There is a level of unmeasured, underground RAGE in this country that really no one in the Media has any feel for." No one in the media has been held personally accountable for their actions. The only "journalists" that have suffered personally have suffered at the hands of the thugs the "journalists" protect with propaganda; to be covered up in turn There is no current reason for "journalists" to be concerned about the consequences of their treason.

90 I'm not going to eat a bullet, but the "news" and the discussion of it is increasingly depressing, partly because of the effect the news has on people discussing it, which is to make them hysterically angry. So it's just a spiral of anger, alienation, despair, and hysteria. This is why people bury themselves in funny cat pictures or TV series binge watching or anime or whatever - there's just too damned much cortisol poisoning when you look at the world (well, the depressing parts of it that demand your attention). Also, the grammar errors.

I think when you listen to  NFL  insidery  types  you get the distinct  impression Chip  isn't very popular with much of anyone in the NFL ol' boys  network. 



Some of these hothead college  coaches come to the NFL  and get their hats handed to them, or they have marginal success, and the league  will more or less be somewhat  forgiving.  Give the guy a second chance to get that college game out of  their systems, maybe  take the role of coordinator  somewhere to relearn what  they didn't learn the first time.



Kelly came  in acting like he invented  the game, and the  insider  types were just waiting (and expecting)  for him to fail.  I think he won't ever see  another NFL  job.

Probably quite similar to many college coaches and their baptism by prima donna pros'  not listening to them the way college players do.



Same was said about Harbaugh in San Franny.  Harbaugh is back at college.  The difference with Chip  is not just  that he treats  players like college kids, he  treats the game itself like the college game.  It just isn't. 



It  might have worked for a short while, because other teams aren't expecting it, but his scheme is not all that complicated, and once other teams figured out what he does, they had a way to defend it.

It seems that IF a 'religious authority' (an Imam) assigns a concubine to you, you get have all the randy sex with her you want. You are not supposed to pass her around... BUT said religious authority can change her assignment at any time... even for a short period... like a day. Also under Islamic Law, you can have multiple wives, and to get divorced, the Man just has to say 'I'm divorced' three times... You can also get approval for a forced marriage (again, an Imam must approve...)... So you can marry for a night... or a weekend... have all the freaky sex you want, then divorce and its all OK... even with no consent from the woman... And Feminists worry about a War on Women in American colleges???

I tend to rank teams in the NFL by which  ones I hate  the most.   Philly wasn't anywhere near as high on my list until Kelly arrived.  I  would have thought they might come down a little with him gone, but now I'm thinking  they'll stay where they are.  Nowhere  near as hated as Seattle and the Gints, but  somewhere in that next tier.

370 Trump was giving a little press conference on his plane saying he's thinking he's going to start spending some money. A reporter said "But Jeb has already spent $40M." Trump corrected him, "No, he's wasted $40M" and he's gonna get the most for the least.

   I think Trump is really a tightwad, like most of the local rich guys I've known. The ones that really make it themselves are always tight. It's only the wastrel children and trust fund types and wannabes who really spend money, and foolishly.

 Jeborah has just blown $40M, most of it going to nothing but feathering the nests of the consultant class.

413 When the wolves are among the sheep, quiet dogs survive. We're down to that - it took us a while to get here, but the signs of the end have been evident for a long time. When the system's falling, and you depend on the system, your goal is just to try to survive as long as you can.

417 Swiss Chocolatier Barry Callebaut Creates Heat-Resistant Chocolate to Survive Global Warming Swiss chocolate company Barry Callebaut has created heat-resistant chocolate in an effort to expand to more tropical climates. Other chocolate companies, like Nestle and Hershey, are also developing heat-tolerant chocolates to sell in warmer regions. In an effort to introduce its products to new markets, including warmer climates, Swiss chocolate company Barry Callebaut has introduced commercially available heat-resistant luxury chocolate, a new blend that can resist temperatures up to 38 degrees Celsius or 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit -- four degrees higher than normal.

448 True story, I went to another town to see a Nixon speech when he was president and I noticed a guy about my age up in a tree with a sign saying 'Impeach Dick Now'. A couple of years later at college I had an apartment mate and one night the subject of Nixon came up. He said he was at the same speech, ha ha, but that he was up a tree with a sign that said 'Impeach Dick Now'. It's really a small world.

Are there still chat rooms?



I remember eons ago, when  all this computor  stuff was shiny and new, I was interested in vampires  back then (SHUT UP!  This  was pre-sparkley  teenaged girly type  vampire  nonsense), and stumbled into a chat room about vampires.  I thought it  would be  a discussion of Bram Stoker, F.W. Murnau, and/or Carl Dreyer... but no.  It was something... else.



I  never again entered a chat room.

590 The cool thing about the Mac platform is that you can have the best of all worlds. On my Mac laptop I have Win7, Win 10, several distros of Linux and some testing VMs. You definantely pay a lot more but you get a lot more for your money. The thing that sucks is Apple has gone to a non user upgradeable hardware model but most of the other manufacturers are going that route anyway.

620 It is creepy when you know someone and you find out they have disgusting kiddie porn on their computer. This happened at a job I worked at, coworker went on this guys computer for something and he had a ton of stuff, with 8 year olds or so. Sick. Posted by: Lea at December 29, 2015 08:42 PM (vmMMi) ---- Being in IT, over the years I've had to deal with two cases of this, one was clear and unmistakable for what it was and I was the person who came across it and turned the person in, I don't know if the police ever got involved, but that person did not work at the company the following day and I was instructed to not add to the rumor mill about it, but once again to send out a reminder about people not having personal sh1t on company gear. That was during the late 90's. The second was mid 2000's brought to me by one of the helpdesk folks who came across something she considered CP, and of course as luck would _not_ have it, it was the CEO's laptop. Pics of some kids doing gymnastics, and mostly same kids at a pool, other seemingly random pics of some other kids, some fully clothed some in swimsuits. Also it was the second time we found links to escort sites on his laptop (first time we just removed without saying anything). I basically got in a fight with the helpdesk person saying it's not CP, could be relatives (his own two kids were older 18+, one had interned with us), could be church group, outreach group I knew he was part of, friends kids, any number of things, though... of about 100 pics there seemed to be 30 or so that were not of the same group of kids. Anyway my tech wanted to go straight to the police, I basically told her fuck that, not for what we had in hand, if she felt compelled then to do so but I would not back her up what so ever. Said I'd take it to our CIO and HR along with the escort links, see if his expense report turns up anything questionable that might be escort related (none of our business imho unless he's using company funds), and I'll pass on the concern about the pics of kids even though nothing in the pics was illegal, just admittedly odd, told her just save an image of the HD, and re-image it clean and hand it back to him as scheduled. I restore the disk imagine to a dupe laptop and went though it again, including restoring previously wiped files looking for 'more'. Didn't find jack, then brought it up the chain. Our CIO couldn't wait to used this crap against the CEO because there were on-going office politics trying to force out this CEO at the time, which even I wanted to happen...but not with trumped up crap. Turns out nothing unusual in his expenses re the escort front and while our CIO totally was convinced that he was up to no good CP (thought I was nuts to think otherwise...as I thought he was nuts) wise HR saw it like I did, all they had is the guy storing fully legal photos on company assets, something frankly everyone in the company probably had to one degree or another, but she would ask him about it and go from there. Anyway a week later I was told by head of HR it was 'handled'. At which point I removed the image of the laptop retained on network storage. Couple days later the CIO (who I was also good friends with) came to me looking for the drive image. I asked what for cause HR said it was resolved, he said he was gonna package things up and forward them to board members anonymously. Things were never quite the same between us after that cause I told him I'd removed it, but if he wanted to he could go restore them from last weeks tapes, but that I was having no part in it because a) it wasn't CP and he knew it, b) the escort crap (if even real and he was indeed cheating) didn't include company funds\business and there was plenty of legit things to use against the guy, going dirty like that with innuendo was just low and could have lasting effects outside our company. I asked him again a few weeks after that if he ever did what he told me, he said no. CEO resigned three months later, rumors of these event persisted long after his departure, as did mysterious 'letters to the board'. So maybe I was the douche in that situation, maybe I wasn't, but that, beyond various other stories in the news involving over-hyped 'CP', I don't immediately assume just cause someone or even leo uses the term that's it was actually CP till there is some level of detail to the story. /sorry for the book.

692 @658 Ha! The key is to work dialogue into your normal day-to-day conversations. It was especially funny with someone that was unaware. Best "get" wins. For instance, I once worked "why, I myself fetched $30,000 on the black market. And that was 1954 dollars." into a simple chat about adoption one day, and the couple we were with didn't blink. Bruce just stood up, tossed his wallet at me, and walked out of the bar.

761 Wow. I admittedly didn't look at the pictures in this case (because ew) but several people did and I think it was legit, not just random stuff. But crazy to think people would see random pictures and jump to that but also I can kind of see it being a bad sign if there were other signs that led you in that direction for the individual? But not cp. not illegal. Etc. On the escort thing, I had a roommate one summer who became an escort. That was weird. Posted by: Lea at December 29, 2015 09:54 PM (vmMMi) --- There really weren't other signs, the tech in question had been the person to find crap on his machine before (escort links, related adult pics in browser cache), so I think she was just sensitive to it all (which was odd cause she was far from prude) and some how in her minds pics of girls in swimsuits and gymnastics outfits = cp, to be fair the only strange part was that out of like 100 pics only 2 or 3 had boys in them. Even if he was really a closet pedo, didn't much matter to me cause there wasn't 'evidence' of it, and I knew about 1/3rd the company was on team 'lets oust the ceo', fk so was I, but like I said, I'll play dirty, but not outside-of-the-office dirty. What's a little ironic about her concern not just the CP thing but him cheating on his wife, is a year later I caught her and another co-worker friend both cheating on their spouses with each other. sigh...

822 Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, josh brolin and Barry Pepper != John Wayne, Robert Duvall, Dennis Hopper and Glenn Cambell. Having said that, the Cohen Brothers version is a better film simply because of the girl and because it's just simply a better made film. You should see both.

Posted by: Kreplach at December 29, 2015 05:37 PM (X48et)

823 "True Grit"  with John Wayne and "True Grit" with Jeff Bridges are the same movie,  but have a totally different feel to them

The Wayne movie is a homage, of sorts, to a lot of characters played by Wayne (and he played an exaggerated version of himself as Rooster) and to the style of western that used to be made.

The Bridges  (Coen) movie looks and feels more like the ornery drunken marshal that Cogburn was supposed to be.  Bridges is a  great actor, and can and has played some really great roles.  Sometimes you don't even realize that it's Jeff Bridges playing Rooster Cogburn.  It takes modern movies to make really stark and sometimes ugly realism, as the old movies were usually telling or selling a more attractive myth.

So yeah, the Coen Brothers "True Grit" was probably much more like the book, because they could afford to make harsh realism.

It's just that they can be felt farther away from the source in the Northeast, even though they are mild by California standards. With all of the faults in California, they can be devastating locally, but aren't transmitted for long distances.

831 Not at all. It's just that they can be felt farther away from the source in the Northeast, even though they are mild by California standards. With all of the faults in California, they can be devastating locally, but aren't transmitted for long distances. It was a joke. A bad one obviously.

834 Some time in the next two or three years, we will hear or read about Rubio being caught up in some sort of sexual and/or financial scandal in a warm climate somewhere, possibly being indicted by President Trump's Department of Justice. Neither Trump nor Cruz would be stupid enough to put this pathological liar on their ticket so he will be working in what passes as the private sector today, one of the dying crony capitalist outposts of the also terminal GOPe. Rubio just has that slimy vibe about him. My mostly apolitical wife commented the other night that Rubio is the only person who gives off a sleazier vibe than Hillary, no small feat there. His poor character becomes more and more apparent the more he appears in public, again much like Clinton.

835 "Bad Santa"  is a funny movie, but you really can't watch it very often  (like more than once) because it loses its edge on re-watching.

"Raising Arizona"  is a movie you can watch over again, as there is a lot of subtle satire you might miss on the first watching.  The Lone Biker of the Apocalypse  (Randall Cobb) was really funny as a parody of typical tough guys in movies.

868 MH, it would have more parkour, but I am not sure it could be more gritty.

Casablanca had a fatalistic edge to it, no-one wanted to do the right thing, and they wound up doing it anyways.  In a way it was the opposite of Noir, where no matter how they squirmed and feinted they wound up making good things happen.

A gritty film to me means people doing things they don't like to people they like even less. It would be the antithesis of Casablanca.

If your worried about shit like facebook just block access to everything but http\https and then either proxy their traffic (where you can block specific uri, or subscribe to lists\groups of things to block), or block it via deep packet inspection fw rules, though these days most SMB type firewalls come with such features in addition to the basic FW features. Another method on top of that is just using custom dns servers, so that things you don't want them going to will not resolve to ip's, there are free ones, and low cost subscription ones for that and their pretty darn effective to keep most people where you don't want them (opendns is one of those, there are others, cost will depend on your environment). Note that it's not going to be 100% effective there will some smart employees that will still find some site that isn't blocked that isn't on a block list that will then proxy their traffic to where they want (facebook...ace..where-ever)... but your average office drone isn't going to bother. I prefer to let them to most places, the blocks we have in place are more about blocking malicious content\ads, or know rouge hosts that can attempt infections of people via their own surfing or social engineering that slips though email or chat system. But we know who's going where and how often... if we need to look, which is rare.

Posted by: Adriane the Movie Critic ... at December 29, 2015 06:12 PM (AoK0a)

907 MH, I wonder if storytelling is mostly dead.  In a way it might reflect the blockbuster thinking: a big-budget film costs so much it has to be a block-buster. So you do what you did before, but in EXPLOD-A-Vision, and CGI.

But storytelling is risky, and is dependent on timing and pacing and moving the point of view

I understood, also, that Joseph Campbell had a great influence on Geo Lucas, and Lucas influenced a lot of other filmmakers - if only because of his income - about plotting the hero-story that Campbell believed was basic to human stories.  I was never convinced that was the only way to organize a plot.  Can you imagine Rick being Gawain or Luke Skywalker?  Rick wasn't looking for maturity, he wasn't trying to find his father, he wasn't undergoing trials to make him a man, he had done that and got beat up, and that was why he was in Casablanca in the first place.
He was looking for a reason that things were the way they were, and looking for something worth while to be.

So not only would Rick have to be grittier, and less meaningful in a remake, he would also be rootless and looking for something to make him into a real man. 
That would make the movie into a travesty at best.  It would turn it into Tropic Thunder in the Spanish Sahara at worst.
