Non Tweets Under the Fedora 2/25 No CPAC for You, Alarming Trends, Trump Delivers Again, Dozens! and S.A.B.L.E. Goslin Powers Washington

CPAC 2019 is com­ing up soon and while I attended the last two and as always con­ducted exten­sive inter­views, but this year my finances and the bal­ance of my debts made it imprac­ti­cal to take the time off. Part of being con­ser­v­a­tive is not spend­ing money you don’t have and while Stacy McCain has kindly offered to share his room it’s too late to get the time off from work and as my finances didn’t allow the trip I didn’t bother to get credentialed.


One of the sad things about miss­ing CPAC is not see­ing friends like Debra “Nicedeb” Heine Fri­day at PJ media she noted that the attack in Berke­ley was not done in a vac­uum:

For those keep­ing score at home, in just the past week Trump sup­port­ers have been phys­i­cally or ver­bally attacked in Berke­ley, Calif., Fal­mouth, Mass.,Over­land Park, Kan., and Bowl­ing Green, Ky.

Will any­one in the MSM say any­thing about this alarm­ing trend?

Well they might if the MSM decided that any­thing about this trend was alarming.


In 2016 when I was try­ing to decide if I was going to sup­port Don­ald Trump it was Father Frank Pavone’s assur­ance before the GOP con­ven­tion that he would be pro-​life that allowed me to to so. Boy was he right:

Don­ald Trump likes to remind peo­ple about how often he keeps his promises. Pro-​lifers have new rea­son to agree after the admin­is­tra­tion issued a final draft on a new HHS rule that could cut $60 mil­lion from Planned Parenthood’s haul at the fed­eral trough. The new Title X reg­u­la­tion bars reim­burse­ments to any facil­i­ties that per­form abor­tions or for­mally refers women to abor­tion facilities:

It’s worth not­ing that when the GOP Sen­ate had the chance to com­pletely defund Planned Par­ent­hood was as staunchly pro-​life it took the same Don­ald Trump that so many in the party insisted was a phony to do what they did not.


On Slash­dot there is word about a let­ter from Microsoft employ­ees object­ing to their cur­rent project with the US army. The phrase that inter­ested me most from the story was this:

the let­ter which orga­niz­ers say included dozens of employee sig­na­tures at pub­li­ca­tion time

Dozens? From a com­pany the size of Microsoft? I guess in the age of chrome­books and IE going from ubiq­ui­tous to invis­i­ble they’re lucky to get dozens to pub­licly speak against the sure thing that a gov­ern­ment con­tract is.


Goose Goslin home­red twice and Boston man­aged just three hits as the 1924 Wash­ing­ton Sen­a­tors com­pleted their sweep of the 2004 Boston Red Sox 20

The Sen­a­tors got on base early and often against Derek Lowe (L 01) and seemed to run at will in the 1st Bucky Har­ris walked and stole both 2nd and 3rd with one out when Joe Judge hit a grounder to 2nd. Mark Bell­horn made an excel­lent pickup and rifled the ball home in time to cut off Har­ris at the plate. Judge promptly stole 2nd but Muddy Ruel grounded to short to stop the threat.

This would be a repeated theme through­out the game as Wash­ing­ton run­ners would be caught off base. After the Goslin solo shot to right lead­ing off the 2nd Peck­in­paugh fol­lowed with a dou­ble only to be caught off base when Caberea speared Wid Matthews line drive. In the 4th with Judge on 2nd Goslin sin­gled to left but Manny Ramirez gun­nded down Judge at the plate, in the 7th Peck­in­paugh was picked off by Lowe, in the 8th Sam Rice was caught steal­ing off of reliever Terry Adams AND both the 8th and the 9th would end for Wash­ing­ton with run­ners caught try­ing to take third after singles.

Mean­while while Boston had their chances against Joe Mar­tina (10) they just couldn’t make things hap­pen in the 4th the Sox had two men on with none out and the bases loaded with two out but couldn’t push a run across. in the 7th David Ortiz would sin­gle to cen­ter and an errant throw by Penk­in­paugh try­ing to turn a dou­ble play would put Mil­lar on 2nd with one out Mar­tina hung tough leav­ing the tying on on base in the 7th and 8th before Goslin would con­nect for his 2nd Homer of the day to give him a two run cushen.

The best chance for Boston came in the ninth with one out David Ortiz dou­bled to left and Goslin mis­played it get­ting him to 3rd with one out. Relief ace Fripo Mar­berry (S2) came in and inten­tion­ally walked Mil­lar before Orlando Car­bera hit a scorch­ing liner to the left which looked off the bat as if it would eas­ily score Ortiz and put the win­ning run on 1st but Penk­in­paugh chose this moment to make up for his baserun­ning and throw­ing errors with a spec­tac­u­lar leap­ing catch retir­ing Car­bera fol­lowed by a light­ing fast throw dou­bling off Ortiz to pre­serve the shutout and end the game.

Notes: Goslin’s 2 Home Runs were the 1st two hit by Wash­ing­ton bat­ters this sea­son. Johnny Damon’s two out­field assists are the most he has man­aged in one game in his entire career. Wash­ing­ton stole six bases in this game, none of them result­ing in runs. Wal­ter John­son is expected to start in the opener at Yan­kee Stadium.

CPAC 2019 is coming up soon and while I attended the last two and as always conducted extensive interviews, but this year my finances and the balance of my debts made it impractical to take the time off. Part of being conservative is not spending money you don’t have and while Stacy McCain has kindly offered to share his room it’s too late to get the time off from work and as my finances didn’t allow the trip I didn’t bother to get credentialed.


One of the sad things about missing CPAC is not seeing friends like Debra “Nicedeb” Heine Friday at PJ media she noted that the attack in Berkeley was not done in a vacuum:

For those keeping score at home, in just the past week Trump supporters have been physically or verbally attacked in Berkeley, Calif., Falmouth, Mass.,Overland Park, Kan., and Bowling Green, Ky.

Will anyone in the MSM say anything about this alarming trend?

Well they might if the MSM decided that anything about this trend was alarming.


In 2016 when I was trying to decide if I was going to support Donald Trump it was Father Frank Pavone’s assurance before the GOP convention that he would be pro-life that allowed me to to so. Boy was he right:

Donald Trump likes to remind people about how often he keeps his promises. Pro-lifers have new reason to agree after the administration issued a final draft on a new HHS rule that could cut $60 million from Planned Parenthood’s haul at the federal trough. The new Title X regulation bars reimbursements to any facilities that perform abortions or formally refers women to abortion facilities:

It’s worth noting that when the GOP Senate had the chance to completely defund Planned Parenthood was as staunchly pro-life it took the same Donald Trump that so many in the party insisted was a phony to do what they did not.


On Slashdot there is word about a letter from Microsoft employees objecting to their current project with the US army. The phrase that interested me most from the story was this:

the letter which organizers say included dozens of employee signatures at publication time

Dozens? From a company the size of Microsoft? I guess in the age of chromebooks and IE going from ubiquitous to invisible they’re lucky to get dozens to publicly speak against the sure thing that a government contract is.


Goose Goslin homered twice and Boston managed just three hits as the 1924 Washington Senators completed their sweep of the 2004 Boston Red Sox 2-0

The Senators got on base early and often against Derek Lowe (L 0-1) and seemed to run at will in the 1st Bucky Harris walked and stole both 2nd and 3rd with one out when Joe Judge hit a grounder to 2nd. Mark Bellhorn made an excellent pickup and rifled the ball home in time to cut off Harris at the plate. Judge promptly stole 2nd but Muddy Ruel grounded to short to stop the threat.

This would be a repeated theme throughout the game as Washington runners would be caught off base. After the Goslin solo shot to right leading off the 2nd Peckinpaugh followed with a double only to be caught off base when Caberea speared Wid Matthews line drive. In the 4th with Judge on 2nd Goslin singled to left but Manny Ramirez gunnded down Judge at the plate, in the 7th Peckinpaugh was picked off by Lowe, in the 8th Sam Rice was caught stealing off of reliever Terry Adams AND both the 8th and the 9th would end for Washington with runners caught trying to take third after singles.

Meanwhile while Boston had their chances against Joe Martina (1-0) they just couldn’t make things happen in the 4th the Sox had two men on with none out and the bases loaded with two out but couldn’t push a run across. in the 7th David Ortiz would single to center and an errant throw by Penkinpaugh trying to turn a double play would put Millar on 2nd with one out Martina hung tough leaving the tying on on base in the 7th and 8th before Goslin would connect for his 2nd Homer of the day to give him a two run cushen.

The best chance for Boston came in the ninth with one out David Ortiz doubled to left and Goslin misplayed it getting him to 3rd with one out. Relief ace Fripo Marberry (S2) came in and intentionally walked Millar before Orlando Carbera hit a scorching liner to the left which looked off the bat as if it would easily score Ortiz and put the winning run on 1st but Penkinpaugh chose this moment to make up for his baserunning and throwing errors with a spectacular leaping catch retiring Carbera followed by a lighting fast throw doubling off Ortiz to preserve the shutout and end the game.

Notes: Goslin’s 2 Home Runs were the 1st two hit by Washington batters this season. Johnny Damon’s two outfield assists are the most he has managed in one game in his entire career. Washington stole six bases in this game, none of them resulting in runs. Walter Johnson is expected to start in the opener at Yankee Stadium.
