Hail to the Chef.

hit and run

I'm on my second cup.

Clarice

Thanks for the mention and what a great sports story.

Porchlight

"Why not both?!?"

Why not indeed? That's what I'm about to do.

peter

I love coffee and I love Clarice, so why not both, indeed. Great pieces to start off a beautiful Sunday morning.

Stephanie posted this yesterday,but this link doesn't mention a defense fund.

http://godfatherpolitics.com/5813/feds-jail-new-mexico-family-seize-everything-they-own-being-honest-legal-firearms-dealers/

According to the LUN below, the defense fund address is:

"The Deming Headlight published a good story on June 14th detailing the defense's latest maneuvering. If you would like to help the Reese family in their struggle, a defense fund has been set up at:

REESE DEFENSE FUND
ATTENTION Patricia Arias
First Savings Bank
520 South Gold
Deming, NM 88030

I believe helping this family, who have lost everything including their freedom,to the federal government is worthwhile.

So is LeBron going to take his talents to Afghanistan where there are even more troops.

Captain Hate

LeBron has come a long way emotionally since he stabbed Cleveland in the back which is reflected on and off the court.

Issa is stealing souls on FNS and Elijah Cummings is demonstrating why he's one of the biggest embarrassments in the nation.

Captain Hate

Senile fool T Boone Pickens is on FNS claiming to be an expert on energy having lost $150 million on wind power. This is Ailes' idea of an expert.

GMax

Boone was not shilling for wind power. That is what it looked like, but seriously the man is not a fool, he is an Okie State grad and a multibillionaire of his own making.

No Boone knows that the wind does not blow on calm days and thus windpower must have a total redundant power system, which would run on nat gas. How much nat gas does the multibillionaire control? A LOT.

Captain Hate

I sit corrected; he's making a lot of sense on fracking.

centralcal

Oh, dang, you all moved to the new thread and I gave an "optics" report on Restaurant Impossible starring FLOTUS on the now deserted thread.

I second what someone said on that thread about Clarice - entertaining multiple guests at dinner parties, playing non-stop with Wolverine, and still finding to time to write another great "Pieces!" Humming the theme of Wonder Woman, right now.

iqvoice

Like most dicks, LeBron isn't a dick 100% of the time. Just enough for me to hate him.

GMax

Boone's biggest mistake was betting on Obama to push this stuff through. He thought Obama meant what he said, and would focus on a task. And that did cost him the price of a bunch of GE generators, but that was just a ante to see the cards, the payoff was going to be much higher. Too bad he did not recognize the bad bet that Obama was and is...

Captain Hate

Nicole Wallace on the FNS panel? Hope those party invites were all good, Ailes.

Captain Hate

LeBron's remaining flaw is acting like a drama queen on the court when he already receives the ultimate star treatment courtesy of Tony Soprano Stern's striped monkeys. That flagrant foul on Derek Fisher had Hubie Brown and Jack Ramsey incredulous while Don Stern nodded in approval.

Danube of Thought

I like LeBron--I really, really like him. And I don't think he stabbed Cleveland at all--he had a contract with them, he perormed his obligations under that contract brilliantly, and he had no duty to sign eith them again. Why would anyone sign up with Dan Gilbert if he didn't have to?

Anyhow, why not both, indeed? My leg is propped up in the motion machine, I'm watching Sports Reporters, my sweetie just handed me my first cup, and I'm going to read Clarice right after I post some delightfully healthy Raz numbers:

Minus 22 at Raz today.

Trails Romney by 5.

narciso

Buffettt seemed to be a big player in the natural gas parlay, for a time,

narciso

Great pieces, Clarice, btw, it's interesting how even what I thought about Watergate, was
largely wrong, re the Pakula revelations,

Captain Hate

LeBron stabbed Cleveland by waiting to announce his plans when it was too late for Cleveland to take steps through free agency to deal with him leaving. He was given star treatment by Gilbert every step of the way in Cleveland; certainly more than the dimwit Gunds did. If he had just given Gilbert a head's up that he wasn't coming back rather than having some jerkoff show on ESPN with Jim Gray hosting, there would've been no hard feelings. Even he has stated he didn't handle that well as did Don Stern.

Just because it was legal by terms of the contract doesn't mean it wasn't a prick move. That isn't a difficult concept to grasp.

Rick Ballard

Great Pieces. I'm so looking forward to next week's examination of the great Constitutional Law lecturer's quotes on the constitutionality of Obama care. The Tribe quote on Obama being such a special ed law student he couldn't be trusted with mundane tasks has proven to be absolutely true.

Captain Hate

Jerry Sandusky performed brilliantly in coordinating the defense under Joe Paterno in fulfilling his contractual responsibilities.

MarkO

Always good to the last drop, Clarice.

LeBron is a gifted player with poor PR advisors--his high school pals, apparently. But, I don't see him as the GOAT.

Did any of you, who are interested, see Mark Cuban slap Skip Bayless? It is interesting if for no other reason than to debunk the meaningless phrase, "he wanted it more." There's a reason Cuban is a billionaire. Here's a link.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hv2jqFd2-qI

Captain Hate

First of all, Bayless is hired to create controversy by the world's broadcast leader in sports entertainment so even when Cuban reveals him as an imbecile he's doing his job. Second, even though "he wanted it more" is a trite phrase, it would be equally stupid to think there's no mental aspect to the game. In the past LeBron has pulled disappearing acts that shouldn't happen to the best player in the game. I think last year he wasn't focused enough to take on the Mavs, who all had their heads concentrating on the prize. That was illustrated when he and Wade were making fun of Dirk's illness. This year he was focused in the Finals.

Ignatz

I thought this Rick Reilly column on LeBron from a couple of weeks back was pretty good.
Having said that and having no particular grudge against the guy his game just seems kind of ugly to me. Not sure why; he just doesn't seem to have a lot of finesse or grace ala Doc J or Jordan and little showtime entertainment like Magic and not a lot of apparent thinking man's game like Bird or Russel.

"Excellent News: Would-Be D.C. Suicide Bomber Eligible for Obama DREAM Act, In-State Tuition in the State of His Choice"

Porchlight

Three in a row for -22. Seemingly out of nowhere (but not really). Wow. Could it be that the WH didn't realize that amnesty is unpopular across the spectrum?

MarkO

It is difficult for me to imagine that professional players in the championship series lack focus or intent, or in the parlance of this decade, feelings such as “wanting” to win. They can be unable to execute because of the pressure of the game and they can choke. Nonchalance in such circumstances is like the laughter in class just before the final exam; it is a sign of anxiety and fear.

Durant broke down and cried after game 5. He didn’t want it enough? No, the team did not play well enough to win. I particularly enjoyed Cuban’s description of what Dallas had done to make the game more difficult for LeBron, like hitting to your tennis partner’s backhand. He may “want it” but he can’t hit it.

Clarice

Thanks, Rick. If the case comes down Monday I might be able to pull it off before I head to Provence for a week.

Clarice

Looks like Egypt is about to initiate a novel solution to its problem of too many unemployed, uneducated young radicalized men.

Porchlight

The Tribe quote on Obama being such a special ed law student he couldn't be trusted with mundane tasks has proven to be absolutely true.

I never thought of Tribe's comment that way. I guess I should have.

rse

Having spent the morning reading documents created at the beginning of the UN's decade of Education for Sustainable Development that started in 2005, I no longer have any question whatsoever that putting the UN's various global aspirations for individual intrusion and overall looting was bo's Job One. From Day One.

Now we just have to talk about it so we can really clean house. I was thinking yesterday that the 2nd amendment subversion that is the core of F&F is par for the course of what he meant by fundamentally transform.

Yet instead of the irreversible change hoped for so much of this just blew the covers off of machinations that had been going on quietly under Bush. Now we know so much more about how this all works and just how much evil these various NGOs have been spreading.

Off to read Clarice.

rse

Excellent Clarice.

By the way in yesterday's work on accreditation and how it is about to start pushing the gutting of higher ed as we know it, also with this admin's explicit permission and push, the presidents of both Princeton and Dartmouth have testified on how poisonous accreditation has become.

I found that interesting. The Ivies know who is pushing them to gut the transmission of knowledge. Parents and taxpayers should too.

Jack is Back

No matter how much I dislike Cuban, I have always tuned out that know-it-all Bayless and his strident droning. Cuban is more right in his observation than Bayless is in his. I'd like to see Bayless tell Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook that "they didn't want it as much". But probably not the consequence since I'd rather have Durant on the Olympic team than sitting in jail for assault and battery.

/Bayless = Doofus

dublindave

Issa the car thief just got creamed on 'Meet the Press' as Gregory slowly took apart the logic of his witch hunt.


Frank Luntz has admitted to conducting a focus group on how to lessen the appearance of a Witch hunt with regards to the oversight committee's 'fast and furious' investigaton.98 per cent of respondents suggested that by mentioning the Terry family, it made the Republican witch hunt seem like a 'fight for the truth'.


Danube of Thought

"Jerry Sandusky performed brilliantly in coordinating the defense under Joe Paterno" He also committed multiple felonies on the side.

LeBron had no obligation to make his decision, or to announce it, any sooner than he did. If Gilbert can't arrange his affairs successfully under the existing rules, he's probably in the wrong business. I'm wondering how he plans to honor his "personal guarantee" that Cleveland would win a title before Miami did.

Danube of Thought

Once or twice a year I send Bayless an e-mail asking him in what year Vince Young is going to lead his team to the first of the "multiple Super Bowls" Skip predicted for him. No answer yet.

Jane

Issa just handed Gregory his hat on Meet the Press, and then crunched Andrea Mitchell and Sandy Berger like stale tacos on the panel. The liberal press is lying about F&F and getting caught.

Jack is Back

So what is it, a "witch hunt" or a "fishing expedition"?

The problem with progs is that they get stuck on cliches and miss the critical rationale for the investigation. David Gregory couldn't cream his coffee much less Issa. Of all the dumb analogies you made DuDa that one takes the cake.

It is my humble opinion that the Committee has a smoking gun but want Holder to hand over the docs instead of relying on those given to them by the whistleblower. And what is that smoking gun? A complicit detail of how this whole operation started as a continuation of Wide Receiver but without the controls and communication and was picked up by Holder's DoJ and the WH as a way to turn public opinion toward stricter gun control.

It was political and ideological fraud - a democrat/prog specialty.

MarkO

LeBron could have walked away from Cleveland without the rancor, but he chose the Greek column route. Imagine how much work it is to make Gilbert seem the victim.

I don't like the shift in competitive balance achieved by the collusion of a few players. There was a time when such a thing might have been deemed not to be "in the best interests" of the game. Much of the problem lies in the cap restrictions and other policies of the NBA that restrict a free market for players.

On reflection, however, one might come to the understanding that the "best interests" of the NBA may not be the same as the best interests of competition. After all, the "rougue" official that the League did not catch, said the NBA was not competition but entertainment.

Danube of Thought

"98 per cent of respondents suggested that by mentioning the Terry family, it made the Republican witch hunt seem like a 'fight for the truth.'"

Please quote the question and the response.

Then pour yourself another Bloody.

Threadkiller

T. Boone said wind was worth it when Nat gas was $7 a unit. If Nat gas goes below $6 a unit wind becomes too expensive. He then said Nat gas is $2.50? a unit.

Energy prices would have to necessarily skydive to get of this renewable scam.

narciso

It does beg the question, considering the problems with Wide Receiver, why attempt another operation with fewer safeguards, and
the last time, it didn't claim two law enforcement officials.

MarkO

Seeking the truth for the family of a dead agent seems like a reasonable thing to do, unless you are hiding something that incriminates you in the killing.

It is simply so Nixonian.

Cuban is the kind of guy you sometimes say "What an XXXX" and others "That was pretty cool what he just did". He's grown on me over the years and the good seems to outweigh the bad.

The same can be said about LeBron. He has never had that "spectacular" thing. Even in Miami, Wade is the one who does awesome best. LeBron just drills 25 or 30 and defends reasonably. He does flop, though, which has become a pet peeve.

The art goes back to Al McGuire and seems to have, along with greasing for the stars,gotten out of hand. Back in the day you had to be Brando to sell it. Now you can be Brad Pitt and just show up and sell it.

Most sports reporting, like most reporting, is histrionics these days. Barroom opinion. One watches for the entertainment value.

Every now and then you see the great stuff; the Red Barber or Liebling or Roger Kahn. Even Plaschke here in LA is pretty good. Great sports writing is among the best writing there is.

As to OKC vs Miami, it was very simple. The new kids a little nervous and didn't execute quite as well. It was great basketball, but watching OKC come down the court at critical points and miss high percentage shots hurt them. Guys like Haslem and Chalmers earned their pay and a ring.

OKC's going to be up there for a while now. Lakers are a mess but the Clippers are intriguing.

The ebbs and flows of the game are what is fascinating. We've got a kid out here right named Trout who is making baseball fun too.

Rick Ballard

Porchlight,

Lawrence Tribe diminished himself, Harvard Law School and every law student who ever took a class from Tribe when he declare Obama to have been "the best student I ever had" without reference to a shred of evidence in support of his spurious contention. It is difficult to determine whether Tribe or Sunstein is the more perfect exemplar of credentialed morony.

Jane

Is there a chance that the military (or whoever is in charge) will throw out the result? Or are we past that?

peter

I turned on Meet the Depressed for about one minute before I started to become physically ill. There was that fat turd, Bill Richardson, pushing the "GOP voter suppression is the real reason for the F&F investigation" meme. Shameless doesn't begin to describe these creeps.

Danube of Thought

I'm with you and DuDa, TK.

Somebody help me out here: is there any reason not to believe that the Brian Terry murder weapon was found at the scene because someone wanted it found?

If there is no such reason, then who wanted it found there, and why?

I am not sure but I am starting to hear it has something to do with voter supression, I did not get the Journolist memo for complete details as of yet...

"Or are we past that?"

We're past it. The Egyptian electorate has exercised its once in a lifetime opportunity to vote and chosen to wear Islamic chains until starvation makes them too heavy to bear. The carrion stench of President Obama's fetid Arab Spring is going to be with us for quite a while.

Captain Hate

When it came down to what Magic always called "winnin' time," I saw Durant. I didn't see LeBron. Some guys often show up big-time when it really counts; some guys never do.

The sand is dribbling through the glass for this particular King.

Clarice

Jane: "Is there a chance that the military (or whoever is in charge) will throw out the result?"

The Egyptian military owns all the major industries in that country. I don't see them giving that up without a fight.

DoT: "If there is no such reason, then who wanted it found there, and why?" I suppose one could argue that the shooters were in such a hurry to flee they forgot their weapons and ran, but the more likely explanation is that (a) they were told to drop their weapons behind if pursued or (b) the Border agents suspected what was up and made sure the shooters had no ability to take those guns with them.

centralcal

DoT: Commenter BR has an intersting theory (question?) about this on the prior thread (toward the end).

Obama and Holder want "Justice for Trayvon".

Obama and Holder do not want "Justice for Brian Terry".

MarkO

In my novel of the same name, the brilliant cartel mastermind leaves the weapon to cause confusion among Obama’s unripe staff, resulting in a directive from Obama to suspend all laws related to Mexicans.

Danube of Thought

"Some guys often show up big-time when it really counts; some guys never do."

I assume we can all agree that LeBron has now done so--not yet "often," but he definitely has now done so. Those who do not agree are free to explain.

GMax

Getting into a fight with a congressional oversight committee and invoking a privilege sure to bring on Nixon comparisons and make your top law enforcement official look like the guy caught with sterling silver forks and spoons in his trousers, seems to correlate highly with the RAS drop in approval. I am sure I am wrong on that, both Double Douche and David Gregory fail to notice the correlation so that certainly gives me pause ( how do I turn off the sarcasm spigot?).


Captain Hate

Those who do not agree are free to explain.

I'm not disagreeing; he had a great series.

Jack is Back

I don't believe they have ever traced the weapon's found to be ones that killed Terry. I could be wrong but there was speculation that the 3rd weapon found was a F&F weapon and had been used to kill Terry but I think that was debunked.

Anyone know?

Danube of Thought

P.S.--to provide a little perspective, when Le Bron did so for the first time he was a year younger than Jordan was when he got his first one.

Ignatz

If someone on this side of the border wanted an F&F gun left at the Terry crime scene to push the gun control angle then it was a risk of almost unimaginable proportions considering the number of people who knew of the program.
Almost impossible to feature such an insanely brash move, which if found out would almost certainly bring the entire administration down.
I'm much more inclined to suspect they were simply too stupid to think beyond 'guns go across border=more gun control for us', not even considering the end game when those gats started showing up in embarrassing and inconvenient places and the criminals actually started, you know, doing what criminals do.

Threadkiller

I wish Issa would have done a Gingrich on Meet the Press. He should have asked all the "reporters" how many times they talked about Fast and Furious up until now.

Danube of Thought

"I'm not disagreeing; he had a great series."

He did indeed. The question now is, was it a one-off, or has he now been launched into MJ space? If I had to guess, I'd say it was the latter, but that's why they play the games. Ideally, from 2012-2020 Durant and LeBron will give us what Magic and Bird did from 1980-1988. There are a lot worse ways to spend the NFL offseason.

Clarice

Ig: "I'm much more inclined to suspect they were simply too stupid to think beyond 'guns go across border=more gun control for us', not even considering the end game when those gats started showing up in embarrassing and inconvenient places and the criminals actually started, you know, doing what criminals do."

I'm with Iggy on that one, We aren't talking about master chess players, are we?

Threadkiller

They did not expect the "shellacking" in 2010, Ig. Terry was killed 1 month after the election. Possibly the shooter did not get the cease and desist memo from Holder.

If the Dems still controlled the house, do you think there would be an investigation?

I belive this was more stupidity than anything else. With this administration, you never know for sure.

Melinda Romanoff

JiB-

I seem to recall that the 3rd piece at the Terry murder was lifted by the FBI. I bet narciso knows where that one is on file.

Kevin B

Maybe the reason the bad guys drop their guns if they've been used is so that they don't get caught with the murder weapon?

And anyway, they can always ask Holder for a new one.

Ignatz

--98 per cent of respondents suggested that by mentioning the Terry family, it made the Republican witch hunt seem like a 'fight for the truth'.--

Hmmm, always a challenge to figure out what drunken Romney shill weeDavey is trying to say.

Apparently in a free republic the best thing would be for the populace to be shielded from the information on which to determine whether a congressional action is a witch hunt or a 'fight for the truth'.[notice how witch hunt has no scare quotes?] and to be shielded from the information as to just exactly what it's agencies have been up to.
Too bad Brian Terry wasn't coincidentally named Winston Smith. Would have made him more difficult to fit in the memory hole they're trying to squeeze him down.

GMax

We aren't talking about master chess players, are we?

Not even tic tac toe.

Speaking of brilliant chess moves, the Fortnight for Freedom launched by the Catholic Bishops continues to culminate on July 4th. From the pulpit today we hear a rousing defense of freedom of religion, and get UCCB insert into the bulletin for further reflection.

This move was Guiness Stout "Brilliant" by the incompetent one and his minions.

Gmax-Gregory was the MC for a forum I attended back in May. So he may have planned his remarks but he was also somewhat off script before the cameras started rolling. He was maybe 20 feet away. I was on 5th row on his side.

Did not come across as sharp. You know how lots of time you can see intelligence in people's eyes like a spark or sometimes a bonfire. Almost dead. Very egotistical about his height and how it startles people who meet him in person.

He's a script reader with an ideological orientation and an absurd income for what he knows how to do. Like many in media.

OMG - I'm watching David Mariness on Chris Matthews. They are all french kissing each other and Bozo. It is completely amazing.

Mariness started out by saying: Thank you for letting me come on to talk about the book everyone else is talking about without reading".

The issue is "coolness", accd to Mariness. The country isn't used to coolness.

People on both sides don't understand the "integration" of Bozo, because frankly they don't have the same quality.


No wonder these people can be so shocked by things like Supreme Court arguments.


Captain Hate

The question now is, was it a one-off, or has he now been launched into MJ space? If I had to guess, I'd say it was the latter, but that's why they play the games. Ideally, from 2012-2020 Durant and LeBron will give us what Magic and Bird did from 1980-1988.

Hard to say on the first one because he's a completely different type of player than MJ (who had been in the league a year less than LeBron when winning the championship because of his two years at Chapel Hole). His defensive skills are probably better than anybody I've seen in the league, including the Big O and Magic, because he can guard all positions (only the extremes at both ends, Rondo and Dwight Howard, would be problematic for him). His jump shot isn't nearly as good as MJ's but Jordan, while being able to drive incredibly well, was more graceful inside rather than banging bodies. One thing he does share with Jordan, and it was new this year, was effectively getting his teammates open looks out of double teams. After the second game I can't remember a mental error on his part; and they were very scant before that.

Getting back to the mental thing for a second, I think that's where Phil Jackson excelled in getting players prepared for the game. There's a reason they called him the Zen Master and his detractors who say he only did it because of the talent he had can't answer why Doug Collins, a perfectly fine mediocre to good head coach, couldn't win it all with the same players.

Durant still has a lot of upside. His quickness is just incredible for somebody his side. Late in the second quarter he made a move on the baseline from a standstill and threw down a dunk that was one of those "did I just see that" moments. Plus he has an incredible shot for a big man. Durant wasn't the reason the Thunder lost.

TK,

You're correct. The entire Obama Administration was counting upon at least a 1000 Day Reich and their actions through at least July of '10 have to considered on the basis they were taken with the sure and certain knowledge the actions would receive the same scrutiny as Charlie Rangel or Maxine Waters ethics.

Charlie Cook looks in the wrong direction today. He's absolutely correct about no Dem wave but he's dismissing the Wisconsin effect as steadfastly as Sabato or Rothenberg.

Bruce
Somebody help me out here: is there any reason not to believe that the Brian Terry murder weapon was found at the scene because someone wanted it found?

If there is no such reason, then who wanted it found there, and why?

I think that the alternate theory is that since weapons are so easy to obtain, etc., that it is safer to dump the weapons after use, than trying to keep them. And, this may have esp. been the case with Terry, since the gunmen presumably headed south across the border after the gunfight.

Ever see them match bullets from previous shootings in CSI, etc.? Do it all the time, and they are able to catch perps by combining the information from different crimes. Now, as everyone keeps reminding me, it is TV, and therefore fiction, but... there is probably some truth to it, AND the Mexican cartel members likely watch our cop/CSI shows too to get an idea of how to avoid getting caught (my kid just came back from Spain, where they watch these shows dubbed into Spanish, and told me that the Gibbs from NCIS just doesn't sound right dubbed in that language - a lot his charm is in how he speaks, and that is lost in translation).

GMax

Cook Sabado and Stu are all Democrat shills. Their usefulness is when they act like the early warning message for a forming tornado, warning Democrats off their current path. It does not often happen but is quite predictive when they do hit the panic button. I thought Cook was quite close to doing that last week, BTW.

Auerbach, of all people, understood the psychological aspect of coaching and shouldn't have been so petty when viewing it in somebody subsequently. Eh, you need a big ego to succeed in sports and it's hard letting it go.
