ESPN's Torch Watch: "Where is Olympic flame today?"

I clicked on the ESPN feature "Where is Olympic flame today?" and ... yeah, I should have guessed:
Torch watch: Where is Olympic flame today? 
A leader of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, runs with an Olympic torch in Grozny, the regional capital of the southern Russian Caucasus province of Chechnya, during the Olympic torch relay.  

In other Chechen news, Larry David buys a detonator from Tibor the Chechen.

In future Chechen news:
Ex-Chechen Strongwoman Denounces Putin in Cannes
New York Times, May 14, 2015
Wearing a stunning floor-length Givenchy gown, former Chechen strongwoman Ramzana Kadyrova was the center of photographers' attention once again as she walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. Fired by Vladimir Putin after Chechen rebels dressed as biathletes shot up the grandstand at the Sochi Winter Olympics, Kadyrova was reduced to obscurity until she electrified the global media last fall by announcing that she had "always felt like a girl on the inside." 
Since then, she has become the bearded, lantern-jawed face of the global struggle for transgender rights, as she passed up no photo opportunity to denounce the Russian president for his vicious transphobia. Her campaign climaxed last night with the debut at Cannes of the new movie she originally executive produced when still ruling Chechnya in 2013. The frontrunner for the Palme D'Or, this rapturously-received protest film entitled Fire Me? Putin, You Bastard, I Fire You! stars Steven Seagal, Gerard Depardieu, Jean-Claude van Damme, Hilary Swank, Mike Tyson, Elizabeth Hurley, and Diego Maradona as a crew of veteran mercenaries who fight transphobia wherever it raises its hateful head. A GCI version of the Russian president appears to have been added in post-production and much of the film consists of Putin being blown up in numerous fireballs, eaten by a tiger, and repeatedly run over by a monster truck. 
During the 15 minute standing ovation after the lights came up, Kadyrova took the stage with her stars and was initially ecstatically gratified. But as the applause went on and on, almost as if none of the assembled celebrities dared be the first to sit down, she seemed to grow bored and mischievous. Eventually, she pulled out a solid gold pistol and, winking broadly, goosed Ms. Hurley and Ms. Swank with it. Then Kadyrova hiked up her dress to ostentatiously scratch her testicles, and finally she urinated, quite accurately, on Michael J. Fox sitting in the third row.
Observers were unanimous in their condemnation of Putin, who is currently digging in at Volgograd for what promises to be his last stand against NATO's tanks. "Along the banks of the quietly flowing Volga, Operation Engendering Freedom shall leave no stone atop another stone," promised Vice President Josephina Biden, whose campaign to become the first female Democratic presidential nominee has soared since the invasion of Russia began. Ms. Biden trumped Hilary Clinton's effort to become the first woman President by declaring herself not just a woman but a pre-op transgender lesbian and marrying Miley Cyrus. Polls predict Ms. Biden will meet the Republican frontrunner, former California governor Arlene Schwarzenegger, in the White House's first all-woman race.

Kadyrov's motorcade. Completely dwarfs Obama's.

OT, Is anyone aware of any bloggers, writers, or researcher that focus and publish on economic protectionism, in particular the positive aspects of protectionism?

Pat Buchanan is a protectionist who pens quite a few posts in its favor.

If you can truly tell a man by his enemies, than Putin must be a hell of a great guy. All the "right" people hate him.

This was the recent Fletcher book, fewer than 300 pages of text actually; but it's pretty serious/plodding, basically the opposite of a Gladwell or Friedman "big idea" airport book

In addition to Buchanan, Vox Day often blogs against Free Trade. See his blog archive on the topic here.

A lot of the Trans activists don't seem a million miles from Ramzan, except they're less sweet-natured.

I guess it's one of those "The Revolution always eats its own" things that the cultural Marxist Ladder of Victimhood leads inevitably to a point where the ones on top are macho white heterosexual males, albeit they wear high heels and call themselves "pre-operative transgender lesbian feminists", I think is the right terminology.
A "pre-operative transgender lesbian" is a man who wears dresses and wants to have sex with women.

See the Richmans' (three generations of economists) blog. They've got a pretty clever proposal to balance trade that addresses some of the criticisms of old school protectionism. In a nut shell, their "scaled tariff" would automatically decline as our trade deficit with the other country declined.

See also this post by Ian Fletcher, about how protectionism/mercantilism helped build the US into the biggest economic power in the world, and how China is doing to us now what we did to Great Britain.

Some Sailerbait, or the next Sacha Baron Cohen movie idea.

Funny, but "Ramzana" seems like a stretch. They usually pick some sort of weird alter-ego for their girly name, so I'd guess he'd pick something like "Catherine the Great Kadyrov", or "Hillary Kadyrov".

Look at the giant homo flag. Who designed it? Who controls the media that promoted it? How much did it cost? Who paid for it?

And yet, GOP is all about pandering to Wall Street.

GOP pandering to Jews and homos is just like Yahoo, Google, and Apple pandering to China's censorship laws. Since they wanna do business with China, they not only overlook but adapt their technology to aid and abet China's police state.

Profitics is politics.

In China, you gotta pay tribute to the bosses of the Communist Party.
In the US, if you wanna do business, you gotta pay tribute to Jewish monarchy and homo noblemen.

True conservatives are gonna be all alone like Will Kane in HIGH NOON. Everyone is either hiding, giving up, or collaborating with Pink Miller.

It's business.

Hm, the way things are going I can see Arlene Biden and her Presidential Guard digging in at Cheyenne Mountain for a last stand against the Russian tanks... 'President Putin has assured the American People that the Russians come not as Occupiers but as Liberators. Polls indicate that most districts are broadly supportive of the Russian intervention.'

Chechens.

I can't possibly think of a more desirable group of immigrants to enrich America with.

Actually, yes.

See, for example, Eleanor MacCoby's book The Two Sexes: Growing Up Apart and Coming Together.

They very clearly recognize who is male and who is female at a young age based on play and behavior styles, and want to be with those of the same sexual identity.

Chechens are a rough lot, but Chechenology may be useful to us.
Civilized folks need infusions of barbarian soul or else they become decadent.

It's like some plants are too strong for eating but they may have chemicals that may be good as medicine. So, you draw out the chemicals.
Similarly, we can draw out the Chechen warrior soul and absorb it without taking all the bad stuff associated with Chechen culture: wife stealing, throat-slitting, beating up wives, drinking too much, and blowing stuff up.

Just ask the chancellor of the Ex-Chechen.

Seriously though, if one can be ex-Mormon, or ex-JW, or ex-Moonie, then why can't one be ex-Jewish?

That's impressive. Is that for real, or are they just driving round-and-round the block to make it seem bigger? The celebratory automatic-weapons fire was a nice touch. Truly, their big-man is very big.

I saw VP Cheney's motorcade go by. It was about 15 vehicles.
