WHAT?! Alexander Vindman's Identical-Twin Brother Is the Deep State Official In Charge of Reviewing Bolton's Book for Declassification... You Know, the Same Book That Was Just Leaked to the Media During the Impeachment Trial

Incredible.



Meanwhile, even the New York Times' Trump-deranged Maggie Haberman can't help noticing that Bolton seems to have pecuniary motives here:

Technically yes. As I said on the earlier thread, though, he practically can't. Not yet. He has been under investigation the entire time. Hell, him firing one of the worst assholes in government lead to the Mueller farce.

Trump firing people means "obstruction" and constant, hand-tying, hamstringing investigation. Even if it doesn't, the Senate will slow-walk or flat-out deny his replacements whenever confirmation is needed - and they never recess anymore (which is a grotesque trick and Trump should forcibly recess them) so recess appointments are out.

105 51 In the past, even here at AoS, people on the right admired "The 'Stache" John Bolton. Now he seems to have flipped sides and everyone hates him. What happened? Why did Trump hire him, and why did they have a falling out? Is it because Bolton was a pro-war "neocon" and Trump upset his plans to Invade All The Things? Or..? Someone help me out here.

Posted by: zombie at January 27, 2020 01:23 PM (fK2gX)

My assessment is that Trump uses his Secretary of State pick to present a certain image. When they no longer serve the purpose he needed them for, or they start to think they're allowed to drive policy, he gets rid of them.

Bolton was specifically hired for his aggro reputation imo. In order to scare the bejeezus out of some countries.

That was the biggest fuckup of his administration, yes - but even then, it would have resulted in the same outcome we have now in terms of constant investigation and impeachment. Remember, Crossfire Hurricane was in full swing and the groundwork had been laid. We might be better off overall had he purged the ranks *entirely* on day zero, but I am not certain of that. With folks like Priebus on the team, the new guys would have been more of the same (as they often were at the beginning).

119 Democrats are going to win on getting witnesses because of Bolton -- but if they were smart, they'd want to lose. LOL! You'd think they'd want to paint Republicans as engaging in a coverup, and at the same time avoid calling any witnesses that will blow up their case. Only way to do that is to lose on calling witnesses. It's probably why they worked so hard to insult the rinos. They'll get Bolton (not worth spit) and Trump gets the anonymous whistlebugger, Eric Ciaramella, and all the other coup conspirators. Watch for D's to scramble to avoid calling witnesses now. Time to stock up on popcorn!

Note to the next outsider that becomes President - do not trust anyone from DC. If they've been in this town more than ten years, or worked for the prior administration, don't trust them. Get rid of them if you can.

A new person in the spot, even if incompetent, will not have the advantage of inside the beltway connections. Don't believe anyone extolling the virtues of "knowing how to work the system".

Anyone that knows how to work the system will work the system against you.

This leak comes just as Bolton's publisher announces the book.

Gee, I wonder who's behind this leak.

This has the intended effect of getting the Eternal Turncoats to turn coat.



Many people are asking if John Bolton has been playing games just to give his freshly-announced book a big advertising boost:

Bolton: I had no desire to die in an east Asian rice paddy for a lost cause.


Oh yeah Mr. Fucking Tough guy John Bolton, tell that to the men you sent to die in Falujah and Anbar province with ROE's that pretty much guaranteed that many of them would be coming home in body bags.

134 yeah, I had better hopes from Bolton ... he now seems more like part of the Swamp than ever. Perhaps he wormed his way in with TRump via the "I am not a NeoCon Animal" routine (he flatly denied being a neo-con, on Red Eye on night iirc).


To pull this last minute cunning stunt, is despicable. -- or at least it was exposed last minute, perhaps long in the planning to inject in the middle of the Trump Defense Time, especially since his ghost writer was in Qatar recently. Was Bolton upset with Soleimani's death, or is he more cozy with Kerry and company or other subversives? idk

I think it was written up over at Federalist or somewhere that the Bolton leak does not say what the press is claiming it does, that they're into obfuscation and paraphrasing and selective quoting again as they've done all along.

The fact that it was leaked to Haberman, of all the disreputable members of the legacy press it might have gone to, gives a fair picture of what's going on.

It's like I tell people, when you cry for Justice make sure you're crying to someone for it - there is no 'arc of history that bends itself towards Justice' - if history bends, its being bent by someone. In the absence of kings people seem more apt to believe that things just magically right themselves, like the return of spring. Once evil people realize that they aren't just magically going to be punished by nature (or something) for doing evil, they really go at it.

Think about that: Everyone knew he wasn't going to ever testify. Do you think it a bit odd there's no memo, no note, no email--absolutely nothing that confirms one single part of this tale?

Nothing but words.

We know the sworn to uphold the Constitution to a secret FISA court FBI lawyer changed the description 180 degrees on Carter Page. These assholes in the publishing industry and deep state Vindman types will make up anything and the media assholes will breathlessly report it.
2. If Bolton wrote it, the Stache, once a person worthy of high respect, is now dead to me. He is in the Colin Powell/Mitt Romney category of pissy, bitchy traitorous fools.

But Bolton, if a patriot, could come clean now and say he has no evidence that Trump was demanding a quid pro quo for Biden's head. (quid pro quo to stop Ukraine corruption, and to push for burden sharing, sure, those are fine, if they even happened).


But instead from Bolton we get "neither confirm nor deny" ... wtf? But in a sense I think, bring in the clowns (witnesses), and also bring in the real witnesses ...

Historically incorrect. The Ruling class will win as long as it is competent.

An incompetent ruling class will eventually be overthrown by the people, once they have weakened the society enough.

Once read an interesting paper on the French Revolution. It postulated the dueling was one of the reasons it succeeded. It seems the almost 30% of the French Aristocrats had killed each other in duels over the prior 150 years.

And it killed the bravest, best, and most honorable, leaving the dregs to those existing positions of power.

Now, look at our Congress, and the stupidity of some of those elected.

Biden sold the second highest office in the land and should be investigate.

234 The Bidens "taking the fifth" won't really help them all that much.

Republican questions, read aloud by Roberts, could be devastating in their sharpness, scope of accusation, condemnation by inquiry, all on their own.

When met by the Bidens' response of "I will assert my right to remain silent under the fifth amendment" after such questions, it'll be tantamount to confession.

So, I want their corruptocrat asses up there at the witnesses' table, pleading the fifth, for some tens of hours at a stretch.

And let the questions fly.

235 It might be uncharacteristic optimism on my part, but this kind of thing boosts both Bolton and Trump immeasurably. Bolton obviously gets better sales, and Trump gets to push neoconnery further away from political relevance on both sides of the aisle.

Either way, it really is on the Republican Party to drag in witnesses. They don't have to make a deal with the Democrats: just drag in Hunter Biden and let the dominoes start falling. Given how the President has handled every challenge up to now, I doubt rumors from a book are going to hurt him worse than three years of extensive investigation.

The only way Bolton's sales improve is if he has some negatives on Trump.

If pre-sales rumors do not pan out during his testimony, his sales plummet.

Or.. maybe Bolton is hoping they vote for no witnesses.. in that case his book sales skyrocket, and he can keep the tease going til it goes on sale.

279 One thing I noticed recently. Local news person (young, eager, clueless) reporting on a local rally in support of Trump reported that the president had been charged with "obstruction of justice".

I tend to think that the Democrats choosing the made-up charge of 'obstruction of Congress' was not accidental.

From Murder She Wrote to Law & Order and every police show in between, the popular culture frequently uses the phrase "obstruction of justice" to the point that it has permeated the vernacular. Obstruction of justice is always thrown in as an added charge.

Ask anyone you meet to complete the phrase "Obstruction of _______". What do you think will be the most common answer?

So then, as designed, obstruction of Congress (not an actual crime) now becomes conflated in many people's minds with obstruction of justice (an actual crime)

He can't.

If he speaks publicly on this, then Executive privilege before Congress goes out the window.

Which may be the ploy.

They are trying to get the President to wave Executive privilege to stop the firestorm of coverage and allow Bolton to speak.

Which would mean Schiff could call him before the HOUSE again, now with a legal argument to get him to testify.

284 This is all about perception. It has nothing to do with whatever Trump did or didn't do.

The idea is to create the perception that Trump isn't on the up and up, and you don't need facts or evidence to plant a doubt in the public mind.

Mind, I don't think his supporters will turn away from him. And it's possible that the Dem's shenanigans will turn off any hesitant voters who might have supported them (the dems).

377 If he speaks publicly on this, then Executive privilege before Congress goes out the window.

Which may be the ploy.

They are trying to get the President to wave Executive privilege to stop the firestorm of coverage and allow Bolton to speak.

Which would mean Schiff could call him before the HOUSE again, now with a legal argument to get him to testify.

Posted by: Don Q at January 27, 2020 12:44 PM (NgKpN)
+++++++++++++++
Would it? I don't know enough about executive privilege, but is Bolton even allowed to waive it? Isn't that determined by the president?

Is it possible that, in the event that he publishes (leaks) privileged information, he had no right to do so and that privilege remains despite the breach?

+++++++++++
I'll defend him a little longer. There are two problems with firing all of them, and neither of those problems are related to whether they deserve it (they do).
1) He has been under investigation since day 0. Mueller. Crossfire Hurricane. Impeachment. Firing someone is suddenly obstruction. It's bullshit, of course, but mass firings of everyone who deserves it would tie him even more than he is now. Mueller came as a result of him firing one such deserving son of a bitch.
2) He can't get his own people in. The Senate never recesses and so he can't do recess appointments and most of his picks won't get confirmed. McConnell is great at ramming through judges but is happy to slow-walk political appointments. Now, it might be that it would be better to have vacancies but then it is just more swamp rats at a lower level who do the wrong things.

I am inclined to cut him a bit more slack on this particular topic. He hasn't been great on personnel in general to be sure, but he is also constrained like no prior president I know of.

Yes, they keep Senate investigations of the deep state from going anywhere, but here's the thing. At that point, Donald Trump will openly excoriate the "secret Democrats" in the Senate and wonder why the hell they exist at all. That many defectors will make actual Republicans go along with it. And Susan Collins has, despite all the press releases, been relatively reliable as a Senate vote. McConnell won't tolerate her going too far over the line.

442 First, Bolton is kind of scumbag for taking advantage of this situation to pump up his book, though how do you live in Washington for that long without that level of scumbaggery not rubbing off on you, so seems kinda to be expected.

My bigger guess, Bolton is trolling the Dems to see if they'll take the bait by putting this in his book. Since when would it be a criminal offense if one of your advisers thought you privately felt a certain way about something? He could make these kind of statements about his opinion of the position of the President without actually giving them anything that is evidence that crime was committed, unless know we've reach the peak stupidity of thinking we can impeach a President for "wrong thought crimes".

Yep.

I'm not buying all this "Executive Priv" shit. Bolton wrote a book, for crying out loud. He's not motivated by keeping secrets.

Nonetheless - either Bolton gets up there and lies, which will get him caught, and we get to watch in real time a former Bush loyalist, neocon, and party establishment ally commit political suicide from the comfort of our own living rooms. That's what I call winning. Lets do this.

Or - Bolton tells the truth, and Trumps lawyers get to shove this shit show down Nadler and Schiffs throats, again, as well as throw in a little scold for the Weak Sisters Collins and Murk for voting for it in the first place. Also - winning. Trump was wrong. I don't get tired of winning. I could win all day, every day, and that shit would still never get old.

Lets do this.

NYT reporter who peddled Bolton's book spin, which has now been directly contradicted on the record by both Trump and AG Bill Barr, is already starting to back away from Bolton's alleged claims.
Maggie Haberman @maggieNYT

Bolton left the White House on terrible terms and was not always seen as a reliable narrator by colleagues. The he said/he said of him versus Trump on tying the aid to investigations is testing that in a pronounced way.

"I'm writing this on Sunday night, and social media is all abuzz about material from a book John Bolton is supposedly writing about how it confirms the Ukrainian quid pro quo.

"I'm not going to bother reading any further. I know it's fake news.

"I mean seriously, c'mon, if the quid pro quo hoax was true, they wouldn't have had to wait to find in un an unpublished book, even one written by John Bolton.

"All based on anonymous sources.

"Right.

"Remember the big bombshell about a depressed Trump stumbling around the White House in his bathrobe, chugging Diet Coke & watching the Gorilla Channel?

"Remember how the Mueller Report was going to be the end of Trump? The wheels are closing in and all that?

"And it was all fake.

"Couple possibilities here: this could be a "canary trap" where Trump would have caused this information to be known by one suspect (and no one else), and if gets leaked to the press, they know who the leaker is.

"Another possibility is that journalists are a roomful of cats, and Trump is a prankster with a laser pointer and they're jumping all over each other trying to get that infernal red dot, which keeps disappearing mysteriously and reappearing on the opposite wall.

"But we'll get it this time, the journalists yowl. Oh look, it's over there. Come on, boys, after it!

"And the laughter is Trump as he tucks into his second scoop of ice cream."

You can claim anything you want about a public figure in a book and its nearly impossible to get nailed for libel. Just because you may have worked with them briefly doesn't make it true or reliable.

Related everyone is laughing at the "But Trump said to fire her!" audio freakout, like he's not allowed to fire someone.

126 It's a shame that we've never seen the real Tarzan, the character that Burroughs brought to life, on screen. Each actor has had some of the required traits, but usually not all. Looking at a list, I guess Lex Barker had the right look, and so did Ron Ely. Herman Brix (aka Bruce Bennett) was apparently good too -- at least they made the later Tarzans educated men instead of the "Tarzan have many animal friends" style of speech.

Tarzan, of course, is such a larger-than life character that it's almost impossible to find someone who embodies everything that makes him Tarzan.

137 57, Jackstraw, Some folks worry too much about everything, others do not worry enough. However, most things are not as bad as they appear at first glance but not as good as we would like to believe.

In the case of Bolton, there was a reason he was not regarded a team player and he is loyal most of all to himself. Bureaucratic infighting as practiced in DC is full of people that use sharp elbows, putting cronies in as support staff, and strategic leaks to climb the greasy pole by winning policy foodfights. Bolton was one of these critters.

So Bolton was using Trump to get what he wanted and Trump was using Bolton--probably to get some deadwood to leave the NSC and play bad cop in NK and Iran situations. Due to past credentials via the Bushies, Bolton was acceptable to the folks on Capitol Hill as a known quantity. His temperament meant that he was always going to crash and burn at some point and I believe Trump took advantage of it to suit his needs.

Yeah, book Tarzan spoke flawless French (which he'd learned from French soldiers) but originally did not speak English. He could, however, read English, because he'd taught himself from the books his dead parents left behind.

That was an important plot device in the first book -- "This guy can't be the same one who's leaving these beautifully-written notes, because he doesn't even speak English".

You don't survive and thrive in the world of NY commercial real estate by being outsmarted by people who are constantly scheming against you.

And sometimes that willingness to keep on working leads to a long career, and recognition for their talent. Robert Vaughn, for instance, said that he parlayed his 15 minutes of fame into a 50-year career, partly because he had the view that he was a working actor, not a "star" or anything that exalted. His recognition came early, in a 1959 Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination.

Michael Caine has been gracing our screens since the early 1960s (Zulu! I think was his first big role), and he's never thought of himself as a star, but he clearly is.

523 AIDS virus is only 0.1 micron



The spacing (gap inherent in rubber) of a latex condom is about 5 microns.



Posted by: rhennigantx at January 27, 2020 10:55 AM (JFO2v)



So why don't health care workers wearing latex gloves all contract
aids when handling bodily fluids such as saliva, etc. from AIDS
patients.
---
There's a thing called surface pressure for fluids, The vira don't travel on their own but in the fluid. Basically this means they can go from one fluid to another through a cell membrane, but can't travel through a mm of latex, even if they could fit through the holes in it, because the fluid can't travel through the latex.

This is how condoms work, basically. They can't stop the stuff in the fluid, but they stop the fluid, which is good enough. (If you think about it, water molecules are quite tiny, much smaller than the vira, yet they don't go through either.)

218 176, Jackstraw,

Devil's advocate question---How would we know whether or not DJT was worried or even faking being worried? The only sources we have might not be accurate after all.

The predictable last minute crap is done to step on DJT's Defense, tie up the Senate some more in delays, try to use the issue as a wedge to get Rep. Senators in tough states in trouble, and give the Dem compatriots in the media something else to talk about rather than the tawdry failure of the House Impeachment managers.
In the end, I am not worried about the removal but rather the wasted opportunities in judges, etc.

It also takes concentration from the drip drip drip of Democratic misconduct in office regarding FBI abuses, NSA intercept abuses, etc. For the Dems, win win, for the Republicans, more time on defense rather than offense.

225 Bolton could clear it all up ... but he is going with "neither confirm nor deny" BS? If it is in the book, it is hardly a matter of national security, except that keeping it alive as a rumor is useful for flipping the RINOs.


And since the house did not subpoena Bolton when he said he would testify if subpoenaed, seems like maybe this "last minute leak, NEW evidence" was art of the plan all along.


Most absurd, Trump trying to stop a coup, to drain the swamp ... damn right Trump should have called code red, if that means revealing the Biden (and others) corruption, rooted in Ukraine. But it does not seem there was such a call for Biden's head on a pike ... it was for Ukraine to come clean, and for Germany and others in NATO to "burden share" ... since the US has been pulling most of the load.

General rule is, any girl who is all three is smart enough to retire pretty quickly. I doubt the girls get royalties for their acting even if their producers get them. In any case 'hot' is highly negotiable, probably most girls that can act can 'be hot' too. The main requirement for the business is 'willingness to perform [x] acts on camera.'

Afaik, the origins of the business was some New York man of a certain demographic filming a stripper and selling the tapes. I don't know if it's still true, but the demographic of actresses is basically strippers. Based on weird anecdotes I've heard, in addition to whatever else that entails, it probably means a larger proportion of women who are autistic.

In terms of life choices for strippers, it really beats being sex trafficked.

265 226, JoeF.
McConnell is a canny operator and I am sure that they knew Bolton's stuff was out there--the book date, the NSC review, etc. I am also sure that DJT's team knew about it before the reveal and know exactly what is in Bolton's book. A lot of this stuff is basic game theory of messaging and narrative wars.

Answer, as hard as it may be, wait and see. The whole Hunter Biden thing is more or less a blind and a threat to Senators that their honest graft might be a collateral casualty of witnesses. I believe that the real DJT play on witnesses is to get to Atkinson and Ciarmerella if the Republicans need to call witnesses. They give up Schiff most probably which sinks the Dems because the crisis was manufactured whole cloth by them.

58 Picasso and Braque experimented with Cubism. Gris, a very serious and earnest sort, ran with it, and (in my view) took it as far as it could go. Along with Picasso, Gris' Cubist paintings and drawings are among the very few Cubist works that I find aesthetically pleasing.

Braque, the real originator, the guy who came up with the initial idea, was a brilliant conceptualizer but a terrible technician. He just never had mastery of his materials. Granted, attempting to capture time in a two-dimensional picture plane is one of the great challenges in art, so props for trying.

Posted by: Miklos, paraphrasing at January 27, 2020 09:44 AM (QzkSJ)

87 Analytic Cubism. The general idea is that the subject was broken apart into hints of its composite shapes and forms. The viewer was then supposed to analyze the work and piece it back together in his head. In this way, the viewer examines the work deeply and has a personal relationship with it. If this were a Picasso/Braque piece, the work would be much more complex and tougher to read. The colors are usually drab so nothing distracts from the analysis.

Very soon, around this same year, Analytic Cubism will give way to Synthetic Cubism. The Cubism of Picasso and Braque will never devolve to total abstraction. It would get very close tho, which is one of the reasons why Synthetic Cubism was developed.

Alternate Title:

"Nadler Five Days After He catches the Chinese Coronavirus"



Last night, the movie "Contagion" was on cable.

I'd never seen it and it was actually pretty good.

On the upside:

Gwenyth Paltrow died and had her skull sawed open (Take that, "Seven"!)

On the downside, tens of millions of people died worldwide and it severely disrupted society.


Funny thing was, "Contagion" rhymed a lot with the current Chinese Coronavirus

Beginning with the plague was "birthed" by bats and pigs.

Check it out if you get the chance.

Avant garde was the goal of Modernist art at the time (and still may be). Something new, something different. A new way to think about art and to look at the world. Art movements at this time were notoriously short-lived-- 5 to 7 years tops before they became too popular and accepted and no longer, by definition, "avant garde". To be new was its reason for existing.

Cubism is probably THE most important modernist style in history, a very close second being Fauvism (To some scholars, they are even). Almost every style in Modernism borrows something from Cubism.

Exactly. The poseurs who wanted and still want to be like Picasso don't get the reality that you have to learn your craft (in this case, putting realistic images on canvas or paper) before you can break the rules of that craft.

In prose terms, you need to be able to write as clearly as Steinbeck before you can break the rules like James Joyce.

Not all ideas are good ones. Postmodernism, for example, is one great big bad idea, but telling artists that this or that idea or approach is where (visual) art starts and stops won't get you anywhere. No one would think to impose those kinds of strictures on music, for example.

Back in the analog cable days, at least where I lived, the premium channels were blocked at the box by little round canisters - they were band-stop filters blocking those particular channels. All you had to do to get the channels was catch the box unlocked (it happened) and pull the filters. If you got caught, play dumb.


My dad was never as proud of me as when I figured that out.

Back in my childhood, there was a pay over the air channel called ON TV. After midnight, they would go to Adults ONly and show porn.

cubism is like trying to represent sculpture on a 2D surface - multiple views and perspectives

also, artists tried to show motion throughout time (like impressionism)

I was in a training class once and we were doing post-course exams. The instructor did this weird thing where we took the exams for each person, but as a class group. To keep it from getting out of control, she put a time limit on it - use one song. It played in the background. If the group finished the exam before the song finished, great. If it took longer than that, you stopped there and submitted the exam.

A lot of people did the predictable ones - American Pie, In In A Gadda Da Vida, etc. I went with John Cage's farce of "4:33." This is a piece of "music" made by the asshole Cage that is actually just silence. There's no music at all. As a result, when playing in background, you don't know when it ended. Unlimited time.

Instructor was not amused.

313 So.

I hate my Boy Scout district.

Gotta get this out, and it may be a little long so skip to the next post.

My kid's Cub Scout Pack is a bit of a mess. Few volunteer parents, and the Committee Chair was basically phoning it in last year. He left with zero notice in September and left a HUGE mess behind. Since the only other person on the Committee was...me...I now have to clean this mess up. Adding insult to injury, he also acted as Cubmaster and did an even worse job there.

Anyway, got a Cubmaster who is awesome but we're still behind on basic things like, oh, a Pack roster and new applications. Whatever, we're getting it done slowly.

What's now frustrating is the new District Commissioner is being a giant butt. He's very "concerned" that the rechartering is late. Yeah, because there's money for the Council involved here. He "offered" to "help" and is making a hash of everything, pissing off our few remaining volunteers in the process. But hey, this is important because golly we have to get that check written to the Council!

What's more galling is that he's fronting like this is all for the benefit of the Scouts, but when we have actual real issues (and I'll spare you descriptions of the 47 times I called the District for help) he's nowhere to be found. But if the Council thinks we owe them even $50, this Commissioner is calling me two-three times a day.

He promised to help with the Pinewood Derby - never showed up. Later that day he calls me with demands for dues collected by Scout and such. I flipped and told him off but good. This is usually the timeframe where I feel a bit regretful but I gotta say...I don't. Assmunch deserved to get pushback. I said he's worse than my HOA because at least the HOA gets the street plowed and the common area mowed....he doesn't even do that much, only around to take credit for our work.

Sorry to vent. BSA is rocketing down a trough now.

Regardless, there's no way to know given the trust situation in China. We should cancel flights from mainland China and restrict entry by Chinese nationals until we know more. At worst, we overreacted. At best, we help contain inflow into our country.

Apparently the mullah regime has destroyed the credibility of Islam and mosques are.
Iranian Christians own no property and have no income because they but the church.
Those Christianity are strong supporters of the Jewish people and Israel.

The entire regiment was impressed as orderlies and stretcher bearers. The regimental commander, a man of means, provided each of his Marines a pint a day rum ration out of his pocket. Non fell ill.

368 More BSA - they raised the dues last minute, *after* I had the budgets worked up and the amounts sent to the parents.

But oh, to make up for it they extended the deadline to 31 December.

Commissioner tells me that the Executive really wanted the rechartering done by the 28th "so we could enjoy the holiday." What?! I told him it wasn't going to happen.

Now he's pushing for a 31 January deadline with half-assed rechartering paperwork because, gosh, if we go past that date we "run the risk" of having to charter as a new Pack. So please write that check right away!

This guy puts every slimy used car salesman in existence to shame.

373 Listen to an expert. Drink more liquor. True Fact - liquor was invented to find some way to keep water drinkable over long periods of time. The alcohol content kills the bacteria."

It wasn't just to keep it drinkable, it was to start off with it being drinkable. In the great Typhus epidemic of London that finally led to the imposition of water quality standards and a public water supply, it was found that one of the few groups who seemed to be immune to the epidemic were working men who only drank beer, never water. Having been boiled during the distillation process, beer was bacteria free.

Going back in time, unless you had your own private well that you were very careful with, all of your water had flocks of sheep and herds of cows crapping in it upstream from you. Not to mention Country Joe and his inbred offspring.

I saw it again recently. It was filmed on location in pre-"We're a theme park now!" New Orleans. You can see the original riverfront with its warehouses. The block that Widmark and wife Bel Geddes live on, we're shown, is as poorly paved a bit of street as this place has to offer (I bet you it hasn't been paved much since 1950), and nobody seems to have air conditioning in homes or offices. A very good glimpse of the city before Tourism became the be-all and end-all.

Youngsters who haven't been around hospitals much don't understand that one of the worst things that can happen to someone who's sick is that they take so many strong antibiotics that all of their gut bacteria is wiped out. When that happens the intestinal tract starts to malfunction in all kinds of nasty and painful ways like spastic colon and all of that. A lot of people have had sections of their intestines surgically removed when probably all they really had was a gut bacteria problem.

Commissioner is angling to try and insert a Friends of Scouting fundraiser/begathon talk in our February Blue and Gold dinner. Said it's ideal because all the parent will be there.

I told him to forget it - the parents are there to accept our thanks for them being a part of our Pack, to hand out PWD trophies, and so on. They aren't there to get lectured to with a hand out for more money by the District.

Well, I didn't say all that - I just said "Gosh, the program is already very full and I don't think we have time for that. I'll ask the B&G coordinator. Stand by."

Yeah, no way am I buying dinner for that grifter.

My hometown ditched the Boy Scouts several years ago because all the money was going out of the local org and into the national. Now most only did cub scouts up to the 4th or 5th grade so there weren't any full fledged Boy Scout groups beyond that and you had to go county level I think. They replaced the Cub Scouts stuff with a boys club. They essentially do all the exact same stuff without the Boy Scout name.

If you're interested I could probably reach out to find out what they all did and if your area would have the interest to ditch the dying organization but continue with the local tradition.

I use them when I am sick but absolutely *must* be in the office. This is rare. My box of 20 masks has been around for years. They're sealed and should be fine. I have only used a few of them - I try to stay home when I'm sick.

499 infectious contagions have at times (and with good reason) been compared to a wildfire.

The rate and extent of the spread hinges on multiple factors. The suggestion that this virus is genetically similar to SARS suggests there will be a similar pattern of contagion.

Mathematical modeling of contagion is helpful but not infallible.

Lay reporters when interviewing an epidemiologist or infectious disease specialist will likely be given a range of possible severity and the headline will scream the worst-case scenario presented.

Be aware, stay informed, but don't light your hair on fire. Sneeze-uational awareness.

That has been, hands-down, my favorite Coronavirus conspiracy theory so far. That this started at the bio lab in Wuhan, and spread because the lab techs were selling dead test animals to the nearby meat market.

Wild supposition and almost certainly untrue, a bizarre melding of urban legend and panicked conspiracy. Truly, a thing to behold.

There is another possibility.

In order to believe Team Trump was blindsided by this you have to believe Trump is and idiot who doesn't realize there are disloyal people in his administration who are constantly leaking and trying to bring him down. That seems unlikely to me.

I also doubt that Bolton has decided to kneecap Trump and go against the team he has supported his entire career to side with people who hate him and who he hates. The Democrats have no idea at all what Bolton will say and it seems to me the odds are way in the favor of him saying LOL GFY.

The Morning Report - 1/27/20

pinobolto.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a new week and its deja-vu all over again. So what took two whole days and half the oxygen produced by the Amazon rain forest for the Democrats to make their "case" and present their "evidence" in the Senate was utterly decimated on Saturday by the President's team of impeachment managers in less than a couple of hours. In fact, it was such a thorough evisceration that Senator John Barasso said that when the transcript of Schiff-for-Brain's perverted, pornographic fantasy of the Trump-Zelensky phone call that he used to open the House hearings was read back and mocked in the Senate, he watched as "the blood drained from Adam Schiff's face." Yes, that's all well and good but the fact is that most Americans had completely tuned out after Thursday and certainly Friday, and no one was going to be watching on a weekend. In any case, Schiff-for-Brains' and Nadless' insane ravings turned off the wrong people; the four GOP swing Senators they were hoping to vote with them for more witnesses.

That was the state of play until yesterday, when, speaking of Amazon, a section of former NSA John Bolton's upcoming book was "leaked" via Bezos' behemoth in cahoots with the Slimes and it just happens to contain a passage that claims President Trump indeed demanded a "quid pro quo" from Ukraine in exchange for investigating Joe Bribem. How's that for fortuitous timing. It seemingly gives the RINO squishes cover to vote to extend this fiasco and call for witnesses, instead of killing this garbage and acquitting the President by the end of the week. Then there's this little nugget; it turns out that Lt. Col Vind-Bag's brother Yevgeny is the person at the NSC in charge of clearing publications before they're released. No conflict of interest there, right? The President has, of course, categorically denied this and called the contents of the transcript bullshit, and a stunt to sell books.

It's so risible and patently transparent a fraud, yet the Democrat-Media Complex keeps trotting it out time after time. In this case because they have absolutely nothing left. No matter what they claim or how loud they claim it, all you have to do is read the transcript of the phone call between Trump and Zelensky as well as look at the timing of events and the fact that Ukraine received all of the aid promised by Trump with essentially zero delay - unlike Obama who, despite a treaty to come to Ukraine's aid in the event of trouble after they agreed to disarm, didn't lift a finger to help as Russia gobbled up the Crimea. Whatever requests to investigate the Bidens were in regards to ongoing corruption investigations and election interference both there and over here. Yet again, the Democrats want to crucify Trump because he might have wanted to do something or thought about doing something, despite the fact that he never did anything except his job in dictating and executing American foreign policy.

Yet again, this is a gigantic Food-of-the-Gods squirrel nothing-burger that will ultimately come to naught. If indeed the squishes squish and we do extend this garbage, the Dems will get exactly what they want, but not quite the way they want it: Bolton as well as the Bidens, Eric "Ciaramella" Whistleblower and maybe even Schif-for-Brains himself will be flayed by Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow. Should be fun to see how he answers why he, Schiff, has buried his contact with Ciaramella under the guise of being a state secret. Bring it on.

51 The woman who questioned mayor Pete on abortion made an excellent point: it's not even a pro or anti in the Democrat party, their platform is it is a reproductive right to get government paid abortion up to the day of delivery. That Buttigieg wouldn't yield an inch on that is incredible. Glad that is being questioned in a townhall and publicized.

Who are the extremists again?

". . . he did not answer the second part of my question and the second part
was: the Democratic platform contains language that basically says that
we don't belong, we have no part in the party, because it says abortion
should be legal up to nine months, the government should pay for it, and
there's nothing that says that people have who diversity of views on
this issue should be included in the party," Day responded. "In 1996 and
several years after that, there was a language in the Democratic
platform that said that we understand that people have very differing
views on this issue, but we are a big tent party that includes everybody
and so therefore we welcome you, people like me, into the party so we
can work on issues that we agree on."

"So my question was would
you be open to language like that in the Democratic platform that really
did say that our party is diverse and inclusive and we want everybody?"
Day asked.

They avoided the Executive Privilege litigation in the House as to whether Bolton could testify and depended on Romney and other eager squishes to carry their Marxist water in the Senate and compel witnesses--ie Bolton-- to show up and testify. ..

"China's unprecedented reaction to the Wuhan virus probably couldn't be pulled off in any other country"

That China is able to pull something like this off is thanks to the ability of a centralized, powerful leadership to react in a crisis. It's also a sign of just how vital it is for that leadership not to screw up.

My dad has been fighting several (possibly related) illnesses for a while. Yesterday, he got admitted to the hospital with suspected pneumonia. Reduced kidney function (unknown etiology I think) plus reduced lung function (can't remember the name of what they think he has but it's a progressive lung disease that ends in either transplant or death) plus bone marrow cancer (right on the border between MGUS and multiple myeloma, has been doing chemo for a few months. He was recently said to be in remission but needed to continue chemo) plus pneumonia does not equal a story I want to think about.

My dad is a kind, humble, funny man who has barely spoken a cross word to anyone in his life (unlike me...or my mom...). I can't describe what he means to me and my mom, and my sister, and his four grandsons, and pretty much every person he's ever met, without a bunch of hackneyed cliches.

Actual quote, "But, therefore, an occasional impeachment does concentrate their minds on the fact that there can be consequences, that an abuse of power can be conjured up, can be asserted. And so a nervous president is probably a good thing to puncture the presidential swagger that we've been living with under both parties."

And that is the last thing I will ever listen to from that guy. Maybe he should be prophylatically charged with a crime to puncture the delusion he is an expert on anything.

It's not like there is video of biden bragging about threatening to withheld $1 BILLION in aid to the Ukraine unless they fire the investigator looking into corruption at the company where his son has a cushy no show job or anything.

Here's a thought. If biden wins and the House flips do they impeach him for quid quo pro?

Even McCain. Even Clinton (yes, I voted for Billy Jeff when I was young). My vote for Mitt Romney practically leaves more bile in my throat than the other two combined. Attention whore, backstabbing, jealous POS.

Voting for that empty suit violated every instinct I had and, in retrospect, the country was better off with Gaylord winning because of having the Orange Scalpweasel now. Voting for McRINO could be rationalized by Palin in contrast to that shitweasel Paul Ryan. Mutt Rombley is a distillation of everything I hate about the GOP.

137 Lesson: Never trust a neo-con. They live on this earth to put the national security of other countries over America. They also will lie, cheat, and in general scheme everyday of their life to subvert America for their precious international order.

Even if this is all false, even if it is made up, I am sick of neo-cons writing books while on the job. It seems like that is their goal in life. Writing book about their grand strategy plans for the wastes of Central Asia, or some other "delightful" spot on this earth.

We Americans have the best dam ground around on this earth and they are worried about Russia in some waste land. I am more worried about the American left at this point, they are a bigger danger to my freedoms.

219 Good morning. When the senators get to ask questions, here's the first that should be asked: Mr. Schiff, you referred x number of times to the "debunked" conspiracy theory that the Bidens corruptly enriched themselves in the Ukraine. Would you please vote the official investigation that exonerated the Bidens or debunked these allegations. For example, you referred, multiple times, as if fact, to alleged Russian collusion which was debunked by the official report of Special counsel Mueller. What agency investigated and officially cleared the Bidens?

At least it would keep them off the campaign trail.

That said, having Vindman's *brother* be in charge of clearing material for release might be fine in general (it probably isn't, but that isn't exactly the point), this is a clear conflict of interest. He should have recused himself from that one. Barring that, he should have been forcibly recused and censured. It's what would happen in my evil profit-making company.

And I think the NYT is a tell. Amazon leaked it, but their captive organ (the WaPo) didn't publish it, the NYT did. I suspect this means that the FBI and not the Washington IC is orchestrating it. The FBI uses the Times as its organ, the main Washington IC uses the WaPo.

It's a removal while an investigation is ongoing.

I've been saying this for over two years now but one of the fist things done by the DOJ and DNI was to set up a special leak hunting task force because of the enormous number of leaks that started before Trump was even inaugurated.

They are still at it. When acting AG Whitaker left after Barr was confirmed he said there were over 2 dozen active leak investigations ongoing.

Does anyone really believe that the Trump administration doesn't know by now that the NSC is largely staffed with Obama holdovers and that Lt Col Jelly Donut's brother is probably trustworthy.

I'm not sure exactly what's going on but I'm 100% confident that Trump was not blindsided about this leak.

I recall (story told on here I'm sure) early on, some group was trying to raise money to bring Jews from Europe to America, and finding that, broadly, their testimony about what was already happening just wasn't believed. 'Germany couldn't be doing that! It's the height of civilization, music, architecture, etc.'

Hell's pretty facade.

Which one of the Democrat all-stars do you see giving Trump a better run than Hillary?

Trump beat Hillary with a shoestring budget and a chaotic campaign team. He goes into this election with the best record of any presidential first term in modern history and a campaign team that has been building a ground team for over a year now.

They're not wrong, but they're also missing the key point. Is one man worth the destruction of trust in the press? Is one man worth destroying the free press? Is one man worth the destruction of political standards? Is one man worth tearing down due process? Is one man worth ending attorney-client privilege? Is one man worth the conversion of the state into a jack-booted machine that railroads its enemies?

No. No one man is worth that. And no one man is responsible for it.

Trump is not the cause or the target of all of this. He is as a man, but if he were just a man this wouldn't be happening. Trump is a symbol. He is a representation. He symbolizes the "other" side (in Washington and other capitals - he represents "our" side outside those spheres).

Are the *ideas* that Trump represents worth all this? Are the ideas of unencumbered private life, a free economy, and constrained state, national preference and self-determination, etc. worth it?

Yes. The man is but a very good symbol. The man isn't worth it. What the man represents most assuredly is. If we lose what he represents, you'll have Adam Schiff stomping on your face while Mitt Romney furtively masturbates in the corner, wishing he were man enough to participate.

It's a fight for the soul of American civilization. And yes, it is worth it.

Oh, and Bolton cashed out as books advances and the speech circuit are the accepted honest graft and bribery inside the Beltway given to Uniparty folks for services performed. This book will be in the remainder bin by April along with any of the Obama books, Clinton's memoirs, etc.

Hint, recently these books suck in general, a lot of it is designed on purpose to be what they felt or intuited rather than factual information that can be proven false, it generally defends the idiotic decisions undertaken by the 'hero' and attacks the enemies of the 'hero'. If done by someone else, the term is Hagiography, if done ostensibly as an auto-biography, it will have a ghostwriter or two or an uncredited total rewrite by an editor.

I have had occasion to sort through this sort of trash literature to get a few factual instances for particular purposes and most of this stuff is already rancid and self-serving from the very first page.

One of the best things that could happen is that a ten year ban after leaving office on any 'public servant' trying to cash in on their 'service' via books and speechifying.

Bingo. There was something of a dustup over there (before I was banned) regarding a bet with one of the regulars (don't think he's there anymore) who weasled on language. He didn't welsh on the bet so much as he changed the terms/timeframe at the last moment before they were set...or something. I forget now.

Hell, I forget. It was basically for not grovelling appropriately. I don't buy the BS of insulting groups of people, calling them stupid as a whole, but then pretending that doing such to an individual who obviously belongs to that group is something different. It was basically the BS of lawyerly pearl clutching that I ran (a couple of times) afoul of. Came back two other tmes under different names but rather quickly got banned for similar reasons. Propriatahy, Sir! The whole lot of them are nuts. I mostly liked watching Happyfeet tweek their noses but I see they banned him as well now. There's a Sammy Finkelman (or something) who is pretty even headed so he's the only reason I drop in there anymore.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Quote II

"Increasing housing and ensuring equity across our City is my top priority, which is why I am so proud to open San Francisco’s first Trans Home on Washington Street. This new program will provide trans people with the safety and support they as they find a permanent home in San Francisco," Mayor London Breed


Quote III

“I’ve been in a lot of dangerous situations, both in and out of the Marines and I’m confident in my ability to handle them. But it doesn’t mean I wasn’t afraid of her.”Ben Feibleman, Former Marine and Columbia University student


Quote IV

"All states have their own protections for waters within their borders, and many regulate more broadly than the federal government," "Our new rule recognizes this relationship and strikes the proper balance between Washington, D.C., and the states." Environmental Protection Agency chief Andy Wheeler


Quote V

Quote VI

“But to me, when I see the president do this, you know, as someone who’s been around awhile, I saw Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan didn’t do this. George W. Bush, his dad [George H.W. Bush], none of them did it. Why does Donald Trump think that this is good? It divides the country.” Juan Williams


I got booted off of Twitter for asking him if he was retarded. I should have told him to pull his head out of his ass at the same time.

Divisive?

“Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.” The life and times of H.L. Mencken.

In this age of dim digitized media in which E.J. Dionne and David Brooks are honored as distinguished columnists, the byline Henry Louis Mencken is virtually forgotten. Mencken, who died in his sleep 64 years ago this week after listening to Die Meistersinger on the Saturday afternoon broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera, is unlikely to be remembered by the mediacrats who abhor everything the man stood for.

Yet Mencken in the 1920s was one of the most celebrated figures in America, and even the western world. The erstwhile bad boy of Baltimore has been alternatively described as a ‘Jeremiah come to pass judgment’ on a decadent and mentally paralyzed America, the ‘American Nietzsche’, the heir to Voltaire and Swift, the greatest journalist of his time, a Communist agitator and the secular Antichrist.

Don't let Florida Man paint your house. And so you have been warned.


Someone turned a $500,000 home in Florida into a multicolored mess, and now the community is taking legal action.

Saturday, January 25, 2020 1:35PM
NAPLES, Fla. -- Talk about extreme makeover, home edition!

Someone turned a $500,000 home in Florida into a multicolored mess, and now the community is taking legal action.

With paint splattered and sprayed in multiple bright colors all over the house, trees, lawn and mailbox, the home in the small community of Il Regalo Circle in Naples looks like something out of a cartoon.

The man who owns the house is 40-year-old Jeffrey Leibman, according to the Collier County Property Appraiser.

Neighbor Alan Klawans told WBBH-TV this unique paint job happened over the course of a week.

"I can't tell you," he said. "Obviously has a drug issue or something going on because I have just never seen anything like this in my life."

The "artist" even spray-painted "Who is Omar?" on the side of a van parked out front.

When the government gets into the business of business, the government loses.

Looks like another federally backed solar energy plant has gone bust. Bloomberg News reports, “A $1 Billion Solar Plant Was Obsolete Before It Ever Went Online.”

In 2011 the $1 billion [Crescent Dunes] project was to be the biggest solar plant of its kind, and it looked like the future of renewable power. Citigroup Inc. and other financiers invested $140 million with its developer, SolarReserve Inc. Steven Chu, the U.S. Department of Energy secretary at the time, offered the company [$737 million in] government loan guarantees, and Harry Reid, then the Senate majority leader and senior senator from Nevada, cleared the way for the company to build on public land.

Life carries risk. We take risks every day. I don't need Andrew Cuomo or any other Nanny to tell me how to live.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been campaigning recently to promote new legislation that would set forth a legal framework for riders of e-scooters and e-bikes within the Empire State. In short, Cuomo looks to pass regulations that would provide clear rules for those that choose more sustainable methods of transportation than heavily polluting cars. Among these regulations is one that clearly states these riders must wear helmets when mobile, a solution that Cuomo alluded to helping everyone who frequents New York's crowded roadways. But when Streetsblog NYC asked if Cuomo might consider a seemingly outlandish safety measure—helmets for motorists and their passengers—the governor didn't shrug off the suggestion; instead, he called for data to support the claim.

Cuomo called the current state of these transportation methods a "legal vacuum" and addressed the need to officially mandate safety measures. This would ensure that casual riders and delivery drivers alike are protected from "arbitrary enforcement" as they navigate the busy streets of the five boroughs.

"We need an alternative to automobiles driving in New York City," said Cuomo

Aging has-been actors don't grow old gracefully. Star Trek Actor George Takei Thinks He’s Entitled to Royalties for the Space Force Logo

George Takei has been suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome for a long time and has probably spent more time in the past few years criticizing Trump than breathing. Nothing is too petty for Takei to gripe about when it comes to Trump. When Trump announced the new logo for the U.S. Space Force, it was inevitable that the has-been actor, mostly known for his portrayal of Lieutenant Sulu on Star Trek: The Original Series, would have an opinion.

New Zealand's attempt to be a super power has failed.

The Defence Force is battling to find a buyer for 30 unwanted armoured vehicles which cost about $186 million.

It is another chapter in the long running saga of one of the army's most expensive, and most controversial, purchases.

The Army quietly increased the number of NZ Light Armoured Vehicles (NZLAVs) for sale from 20 to 30 early in 2019.

Only a government employee could come out of the Epstein death incident smelling like a rose. Warden moving onto green pastures.

The warden in charge when Jeffrey Epstein ended his life in his jail cell is being moved to a leadership position at another federal correctional facility, putting him back in the field with inmates despite an ongoing investigation into the financier's death, two people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

The federal Bureau of Prisons is planning to move Lamine N'Diaye to the role at FCI Fort Dix, a low-security prison in Burlington County, New Jersey, the people said. The move comes months after Attorney General William Barr ordered N'Diaye be reassigned to a desk post at the Bureau of Prisons' regional office in Pennsylvania after Epstein's death as the FBI and the Justice Department's inspector general investigated.

Bailiff whack their pee-pee. The University of Conneticut has a federal judge pissed at them.

When a judge tells you twice in one week that you are violating students’ constitutional rights, it may be time to listen.

A federal court in Connecticut handed the University of Connecticut a stinging rebuke yesterday, holding that the university likely violated an accused student’s due process rights when it ignored exculpatory evidence and prevented him from questioning witnesses in his sexual misconduct case. This is the second time in a week that U.S. District Judge Michael Shea has issued a temporary restraining order against UConn in a case involving students’ constitutional rights: Last week, Judge Shea barred UConn from proceeding with a disciplinary hearing against two students impermissibly being disciplined for their constitutionally protected speech.

The French are not known for their fighting prowess. Even President Trump is "skeptical" of their forces.

According to a new report from NBC, France is pleading with President Trump to not cut off U.S. military support to French forces fighting Islamist militants in Africa.

Trump administration officials have expressed skepticism on the effectiveness of French counterterrorism efforts.

French President Macron has repeatedly clashed with President Trump on topics including NATO spending and the U.S. decision to leave the Paris Climate Accord.

Macron has also been plagued with low favorability ratings in his country and mass protests.

Oh woe is us. We couldn't do anything. Funny how Cindy McCain can rationalize away knowledge of Jeffrey Epstein's behavior.

Cindy McCain, the widow of late Sen. John McCain, blasted authorities who were "afraid" to arrest convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein even though everyone "knew" what he was doing.

"Epstein was hiding in plain sight," said Cindy McCain. "We all knew about him. We all knew what he was doing, but we had no one that was — no legal aspect that would go after him. They were afraid of him. For whatever reason, they were afraid of him."

McCain's comments came after she was questioned by an attendee during her appearance at the State of the World 2020 conference in Florida.

I'm sure her late husband and his staff could have done more. They sure knew how to get a Bull Shit dossier to Buzz Feed.

PHOENIX (AP) — A 62-year-old man was cited in Arizona this week after trying to disguise a fake skeleton as a passenger just to use the HOV lane.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a trooper pulled over the man on Thursday after noticing he had placed a fake skeleton in the passenger’s front seat.

The skeleton was sitting upright, wearing a hat and tied to the front seat.

Not only were they peaceful protesters, they were clean as well. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Thousands of people flooded the surrounding streets of the Capitol in Richmond on Monday for a gun-rights rally, however, locals in the area say the roads are the cleanest they've seen in quite some time.

There's a reason for that, said Matthew Keisling, a protester who made sure that once he shared his message, he went above and beyond to protect it.

"I've been in the area when there have been other protests and demonstrations and people leave a lot of trash behind and it waters down the message," Keisling said.

Advocates told 8News they made sure to clean up after the rally because they felt leaving trash behind "represents the group and the movement very poorly."

55 Woot-Woot!! Another ONT! Spectacular photo up top Mis Hum. Thinking of how that flag must have flown in the breeze brings on the goose bumps, it does.

Great song, too. Haven't heard John Prine in quite a while.

Pray for our president and valiant warriors.

56 Re: the slide story. As a wee intern I was working in a San Francisco hospital during the AIDS epidemic. We had a gentleman come in with bacterial pneumonia, who was HIV-positive (in those days you could assume the patient had full blown AIDS, as we didn't have any meds worth a damn). So we got a sputum sample, put it on a slide. Three guesses as to what I saw, and the first two don't count.

59 25 Funny Nasty story for the Horde:

My daughter is a freshman in college. She went to her bio lab Friday morning at 8 am. She and her classmates had to swab each other's mouths to look at germs under a microscope. One of her classmates yells,"There's a tadpole in my slide!" The prof says, "That's not a tadpole; that's sperm." The girl says," Oh, that makes sense." 8 A M
