Blush to Judgment (Weds Nov 13, 2019)

(Note: this post went "live" a bit early and says Tuesday, but it is the Wednesday post!)

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, schiff, trump, impeachment, makeup

Today sees the kickoff of the Adam Schiff Show, which we're deeply looking forward to not watching. Ever. For any reason.

Schiff is expected to open each installment with a comedic "parody" opening monologue, followed by telling the TV audience about the exciting roster of guests who will be grilled on the show, after which he'll mime a golf swing and signal the band to play jazzily into the first commercial break.

In this inquiry, which the press is happily and erroneously calling actual "impeachment hearings," all legal standards of what constitutes legitimate evidence have been thrown into a woodchipper, and neither President Trump nor the Republicans are allowed to offer any defense whatsoever. Apparently Mr. Schiff is using the legal playbook from the Salem witch trials, which is ironic considering that his googly eyes alone would have been enough for him to get torched back then ("He looked at my cows and they dried up, my crops withered and died, and my wife gave birth to a changeling with beady peepers!")

We're sure that the Adam Schiff Show will get plenty of press and news coverage, which will be handy for anyone who wants to hear more about it. Because we'll be damned if we're going to say any more about it unless we absolutely have to.


stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, boudin, san francisco, district attorney, bill ayres, obama, weather underground

As another reminder of how screwed up liberals are, San Francisco has just elected a new district attorney whose pedigree and platform are flat out astounding.

Chesa Boudin (sadly not heir to a cajun sausage fortune) is the son of two members of the infamous Weather Underground domestic terror group. When Boudin was still only a toddler terrorist, his parents were packed off to prison for using bombs to murder policemen - which may well be the precipitating incident which made young Chesa dedicate his life to screwing up law enforcement.

Boudin was then raised in Chicago by the violently antisocial ringleaders of the Weather Underground - Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. For anyone who doesn't remember, it was in the living room of Bill Ayers that a young man with a dream (well, the dreams of his father and ghostwriter), Barack Obama, kicked off his ambitious and eventually successful attempt to screw up America and get policemen killed.

Fast forward to the present, and the festering stinkhole that is San Francisco, where candidate Chesa Boudin promised voters that if he was made District Attorney, he would make sure that no one was prosecuted for pooping or peeing on the sidewalks, that no one would be hassled for offering or soliciting sex, and that there would be no enforcement attempts to keep people from setting up tents or cardboard box hovels wherever they like. And the other candidates were so bad that this second generation terrorist/scatologist actually won on that platform.

He'll soon be starting his important job of law non-enforcement and hobbling the work of street cops, but we'd first like to ask him about an apparent inconsistency in his plans. He's making sure that San Francisco's sidewalks will be contaminated with even more pee and poop...but also encouraging the homeless to sleep on those sidewalks. If Donald Trump is responsible for the comfort and hygiene of illegal immigrants at the border, shouldn't D.A. Boudin be encouraging people not to take huge steaming craps on the beds of the homeless?

Frankly, this D.A.'s agenda sounds D.O.A to us.

It's begun. Here's a link to an article on the website with the heart-warming title "San Francisco: Public urination, prostitution will no longer be prosecuted" --

Apparently the rhetorical question "How stupid can you get?" was taken as a challenge. I predict that after this anarchist moron gets entrenched, the first responders will realize that they are pissing into the wind and leave. As will anyone else who doesn't live in a protected enclave. The smarts ones are already bailing out of this Titanic of a state, soon the tax base will consist of homeless, illegals, uber rich politicians and porn studios. The best they can hope for is that the fires will decimate all of the area. Or maybe God will send a repeat of the 1906 earthquake to rid the state of these parasites. We can hope and watch - but only if you have a strong stomach.

Geoff King said...

Jesse Watters of Fox's "The Five" has called for a "Pee Party" where concerned citizens would congregate at Boudin's office every morning and pee on the sidewalk in front of him as he walks to work.
Not quite as profound a statement as the 1773 Boston Tea Party, but I bet Sam Adams and Paul Revere would be proud nonetheless.

Fred Ciampi said...

No words can convey how I feel knowing that the once beautiful city that I grew up in has become such a shithole. I am glad that I moved 30+ years ago to the Appalachian Mountains. Here, only the bears shit in the woods. Actually, bears shit wherever they want to. And they're cleaner than San Francisco politicians. I feel saddened for the good citizens of San Francisco who have stayed and tried to keep 'The City By The Bay' their home.

Fred Ciampi said...

And another thing; Thomas Jefferson is turning in his grave over his college's latest: Citing ‘gun violence,’ UVA cancels 21-gun salute portion of Veterans Day ceremony. Enough said on that. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Fred Ciampi said...

And still yet another thing: it's OK to shit, pee, and whore on San Francisco streets but you cannot eat your Egg McMuffin on BART. Where in hell have priorities gone?

I'm on a roll today.

TrickyRicky said...

I will not watch a minute of the Schiff show shenanigans. Ah, alliteration in the morning. Anyway, I have to work today, and I can always catch the low points on the interwebs. I am a bit curious how, even with his absurd and patently biased rules, Schiff can keep this circus from being recognized by even the lowest low info voter for what it is once it hits the networks.

More popcorn please.

Jason Anyone said...

"And before we get started, I don't wanna hear any more whining about the so-called "Right to face your accuser" bullshit. You already know how we feel about the 1st and 2nd Amendments. You'll probably get a good look at how we feel about the 6th very soon."

Unfortunately, mine wasn't a parody.

Obama's "You of Ayers" education aside, I can't help but wonder if he's the reason for talk of his MiniMe possibly joining the rest of the hounds in baying at the moon.

rickn8or said...

That clapping sound you hear from the west is my daughter-in-lawyer in Oakland applauding Boudin's platform and election. I am cheered by this, as she'll have a front-row seat for the upcoming debacle.

CDH said...

I keep waiting for a (another?) disease outbreak to really clean the place up...

KanB said...

Not watching a minute of the "Schiff Show" you'll also have to forgo being anywhere near a TV during the evening "News" hours, they'll be wall to wall Schiff Shit.

John the Econ said...

The Adam Schiff Show: An apt description. As we've discussed here before, this is nothing more than a year of scheduled programming of a sitcom based upon the premise of "orange man bad" to distract people from the fact that the current slate of Democratic candidates are crazy socialists and fascists, with a couple of "I've got mine, now I'll screw you" billionaires thrown in for supposed respectability.

Where is Dirty Harry when we really need him: Perhaps Clint Eastwood should update Gran Torino, except this time he's a retired cop in San Francisco screaming at homeless people to stop turning tricks and dropping turds on his front lawn.

But seriously, that Chesa Boudin is who he is should not be a surprise to anyone. What I honestly cannot understand is why people who live in that city would vote for a chief law enforcement official who literally promises to make their city even more unlivable than it's already become.

Perhaps this is a grand scheme to solve San Francisco's legendary "affordable housing" problem. By making the city literally unlivable, the middle class will eventually abandon their homes and the cheap labor servant class wealthy Progressives like and have been importing can totally take over.

Here's an upside: As the power grid in California is headed for imminent collapse and more cities are denying natural gas hookups as a counter-productive cure for "climate change", it's only a matter of time before Californians are cooking with feces just like they do in the turd-word:

People Are Cooking With Human Poo—and That’s a Good Thing

The best part will be the free home delivery.

Colby Muenster said...

Some of the Republicans, like Nunes, are screaming bloody murder, but their opinions will never, ever be heard on the alphabet networks. Perhaps they should, as many have suggested, just boycott the whole damn thing.

Piece of Schiff will not allow them to get even the slightest toehold, they will never get to call any witnesses that are worth calling, their votes on the committee are meaningless, if they do actually gain any ground, the media will see to it that it becomes "one step forward, fifteen steps back." If it comes to a vote in The House (which it undoubtedly will), they can't possibly win. So why participate at all? Go back to your districts, and spend time with your families and constituents. The only thing this will do is speed things along, so the Senate can shitcan the whole works in a matter of hours.

Sam Frank's Disco.... I figure eventually, California will be crying to the Feds to help them solve their problems (i.e. send money). I hope Trump tells them to perform aviated coitus with a rotating perforated pastry. I do not wish ill will on the fine Californians who despise what has happened to their state, but the snowflakes need to learn the hard way. Then again, what if it gets so bad that the snowflakes start moving east?! GAAA!! Maybe we need to start shipping them to Venezuela and Cuba right now!

Pete (Detroit) said...

CDH - Right? Ho long can it POSSIBLY be until an epidemic of typhus or other such fun takes over? With all the rats living in among the homeless in LA, can an outbreak of Plague be far off?

Old Cannonballs said...

@ Colby Muenster -- "I hope Trump tells them to perform aviated coitus with a rotating perforated pastry." I laughed so hard when I read that that milk would have shot out my nose if I'd been drinking some, but I hadn't. Still wiping away tears of mirth, though.

John the Econ said...

@Fred Ciampi, I remember when people used to debate which city represented the pinnacle of culture in America; San Francisco (not LA) or New York. At the time, New York had long since descended into dysfunction (overrun by criminal gangs and bankruptcy) but San Francisco shined. For a time, post-Giuliani New York gave San Francisco a run for its money.

How far we've come in barely a generation. So today it's a crime to eat your egg-a-muffin on BART and you will be cited, but if you were to drop trou and take a dump, people would just smile at you. Will someone try to convince me that this is not insanity

I haven't been to SF in decades now, but I always had a great time there. Like you, it saddens me that I may never see what it once was ever again. Today, San Francisco is just a museum of where Progressivism wishes to take us. On purpose.

UVA cancels 21-gun salute: How long can a nation survive where everything has to be subservient to the emotional dysfunction of the snowflakes?

Speaking of insanity in California:

A Bucket of Hot Diarrhea Was Randomly Poured on a Woman by a Homeless Man

"It was diarrhea. Hot liquid. I was soaked, and it was coming off my eyelashes and into my eyes," Van Tassel said. "Paramedics who came to treat me said there was so much of it on me, that it looked like the man was saving it up for a month."

Yes, this is the world that our Progressive betters argue that we should be sequestered in. No thanks. You can have it.

Regnad Kcin said...

After listening to R.L. put forth his educated oratory on the "hearings" this morning, it reminded me of the line in "Manchurian Candidate" uttered by James Gregory after eyeballing the Heinz ketchup bottle on the table. His estimation was just a little off by about 500%. Still, history does repeat itself every so often. I'll bet these loons make all their mothers proud of their chest thumping.........

Pat Cummings said...

@John the Econ: AHA! At last I see the reasoning behind banning Starbucks cups—it's so that no homeless person (however gendered) has the wherewithall to collect steaming poo-fluid to pour on someone else!

Now if I could just figure out how plastic straws figure into this rationale...

MAJ Arkay said...

I'm watching the hearing on Fox, since my cable company does not carry CSPAN 3 or 4, where I would prefer to watch. At least Fox is not interrupting with commercials or talking heads, so I can hear what is actually being asked/answered.

So far, I'm hearing massive amounts of hearsay, which will not be admissible if the Senate actually has a trial.

The best lines so far are from Jim Jordan, who succinctly pointed out that, in order for this situation to be an impeachable offense, the Ukraine president must be held out as a liar, since he's repeatedly said he was never pressured for anything.

Shelly said...

A similar proclamation was made by the newly elected DA of Dallas County. He stated he would no longer prosecute crimes for theft under $750.00. In other words, an invitation to low level thieves to walk into a store, help themselves to $749.99 in merchandise and thumb their nose as they walk out. Why we keep electing leftists to higher office when this is the result we get is beyond me.

Rod said...

There sure are getting to be LOT of places I will fully boycott; but I can and will do it. One person alone means nothing. Many people I know? still no big deal, at least those around ME. 50% of us, not sure; maybe starting to be effective. Close to 80% could mean something. Damn near all us?... San Fran who? I'm good for my part. Even their damned bridge is very old news. Never been there; won't go and I will start checking resumes, bios, business addresses and phone numbers as well.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Anonymous- Where "no punishment fits the crime."

@Old Cannonballs- Damn, that's a nasty article. This guy is even worse than I thought.

@igor- When it comes to making living conditions even worse, San Francisco has an impressive work ethic.

@michael hutson- Isn't it funny that the radicals who wanted to burn everything down end up being filthy rich?

@M. Mitchell Marmel- I thought you meant we should be battling over chicken sandwiches!

@Jim Irre- You're quite right. And it isn't a hole in the ozone that will do us in - it's the hole in so many heads.

@Snark- I don't wish any more natural disasters on California, as there are a lot of good people out there, too. But the exodus of industries, the wealthy, and the sane are all appropriate - and a self-inflicted wound. I'm genuinely staggered by how many things are done as wrongly and stupidly as possible in California.

@Geoff King- I love that idea! And how long do you think it would be before Boudin found a way to arrest conservatives who were annointing the sidewalk in his honor?

@Fred Ciampi- You ARE on a roll today, and for all the right reasons. No 21-gun salutes? No Egg McMuffins on BART? But "golden showers" partytime is okay on the streets? Madness.

@TrickyRicky- I watched about 5 seconds of Schiff today, with the sound off, and it was still all I could physically bear. I'll stay informed on this fustercluck, but I'm not watching it closely out of genuine concern for my health and mental wellbeing. As M. Mitchell Marmel suggested, I'm getting awfully damn close to that Popeye Moment: "That's all I can stands, I can't stands no more!"

@Jason Anyone- Neither Trump, the Republicans, or We The People have any "rights" in this mockery of justice. What we're seeing isn't law, it's theater.

@rickn8or- I think that's like having a front row seat at a Gallagher show or a Blue Man Group concert: a dangerous place to be.

@CDH- Well, they're certainly ASKING for a resurgence of plagues out in Californy. I recently read where leprosy is spreading, along with a lot of what we formerly considered third world diseases. Can Ebola be far behind?

@KanB- I skipped the news to watch "Jeopardy!" (stay strong, Alex!) followed by an episode of the Andy Griffith Show. I have no doubt at all that it was the right choice.

@John the Econ- Fine points throughout. And at the point "cooking with poo" becomes common, Rice-a-Roni may want to consider becoming some OTHER city's "treat."

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Colby Muenster- My home state of Texas is already drowning in renegade Californians...all of whom seem to want to vote in the same governmental fiascos that forced them to leave home. WE DON'T WANT THEM HERE.

@Pete (Detroit)- It seems likely that we'll get some kind of galloping plague out there soon. And let's not forget how many of these illnesses were brought into these (disease) sanctuary cities by illegals. Punishment, meet crime.

@Old Cannonballs- That was a damn fine line, wasn't it?

@John the Econ- I think San Francisco can still lay claim to being the pinnacle of liberal culture in America. Well, assuming that spirals of street poo can be considered "art."

@Regnad Kcin- I'm betting those Moms drink a lot these days...

@Pat Cummings- Well, a plastic straw can make a pretty good pea-shooter for someone who has the whole day to roll their feces into sun-dried pellets...

@MAJ Arkay- Yes, Jim Jordan's remarks were very welcome (well, what I've seen of them). And you're right that this is "all hearsay, all the time." Such BS...

@Shelly- Living on the outskirts of Dallas, I was stunned by the "take all you want up to $750" edict. Suddenly this city that I know so well has become shoplifter Heaven. And does anyone want to guess how business owners will react to letting every single customer steal $749 worth of merchandise every freaking day?! I'm expecting to see a lot of vacant buildings where there used to be stores...and liberal crusaders bitching about the lack of shopping opportunities in bad neighborhoods.

@Rod- I've got a soft list of things/people/places I'm boycotting. And yeah, San Francisco is pretty high on that list!

Sortahwitte said...

One of our kids and her family live in OKC. In the northeast part of that city used to be a large neighborhood grocery store. It shut down due to rampant shoplifting and violent episodes when the perps were confronted. If you know what I mean and I think you do. Now there is a loud reaction for city buses to pick up these people and haul them to outlying places to shop. Yep, let's just move the lawlessness around. And then, kiss civilization good-by.

Colby Muenster said...

@Old Cannonballs and Stilton,

I wish I could take credit for the rotating pastry line, but I heard that from a co-worker back in the early 80's.

And thank GOD for Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes and Mark Meadows! Hey, Mitch McConnell! You should hang out with these guys a while.
