Good thing Centerist Kaine is her running mate!

Comey said the FBI was able to retrieve 2000 emails
from the destroyed servers.

My guess is JOM has had a million comments in the last 20 years, yet I bet there's no way they contain more than a dozen mentions of Yoga, and only a couple hundred max mention wedding planning. If she could write 30,000 emails on Yoga and Wedding planning she's unfit to be Prez just due to being so damn boring.

Yevginy:. "Hey, Ivan, what'd the US Secretary of State post today, more Super Top Secret satellite shots of critical installations?"

Igor: Nah, Igor, Vlad is gonna' be pissed! It was more Imperialist shit about Chelsea's wedding dress. Chelsea wanted it made out of Leather, but Ivanka Trump told here no.

Yevgeny: Well is there anything new on illegal arms shipments to Libya? Any new backstabbing at the DNC? Or did she maybe out another undercover CIA Agent we can capture and torture?

Igor: No, it's all E-Mails about Yoga, Yoga and getting that hog of a daughter married off to some sleazeball felons kid! But she did screw up and include some great financial info you and me ought to be able to get rich off personally.

Yevgeny: . What is it?

Igor: Invest heavily in Greek Hedgefunds!

Tom Bowler

Is it the consensus among the lawyers who comment at JOM that Hillary most likely broke federal law by setting up her home grown server, by sending and receiving classified information on through it, and by deleting emails without oversight?

I'm trying to imagine how we avoid a national crisis if she gets elected, when more than half the nation thinks she should have been prosecuted.

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

Re-education camps, Tom Bowler. It was foretold.

Remember going to summer camp? It will not be as much fun.

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

The first Tea Party in DC was able to get a permit, restricted in area but still given and with adequate port-a-potties.

After the documented mistreatment of the Bernie delegates in Philly, I envision a protest area behind double fences and off in some dark industrial corner of DC for dissenting citizens who will be identified and renamed disturbed subjects.

DrJ, it wasn't me directing you to the nekkid pix of Trump's wifey on the previous thread. Just so that's clear.

So Loretta Lynch's old law firm that is profiled here for its ties to clinton is also where Khazr Kahn worked.

If we're lucky, in 3 years Loretta lynch will be the wrong answer to a Jeopardy Question about which one was a Country/Western Singer from Tennessee?

It's hard to tell what they're yelling, Beasts.

Btw, the correct name of the donk stooge is Khan, not jimmyk's last name.

daddy on iPad r u guys drinkin' enough?

What's this about nekkid pix of Melania? Can't some caring soul post them here? 😬

Let's cut to the chase. Opinions mandated of all JOMers per double secret Delta House rules. Who would you rather see naked? Hillary, or Trump?

For me of course, it's another historic glass ceiling broken by Hillary. First time in my life I'd rather see a guy naked than a gal.

How's it hanging, Donald!!!

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

Comey warned in his testimony that a person--in the FBI--* doing the same things as HRC would face the consequences.

(*weasel words, Hillary and her 300 were not FBI.)

Words to remember:
"The director agreed that a sophisticated government employee should have recognized what the marking meant, but said he believed Clinton may not have. “I think it’s possible, possible she didn’t understand what a ‘C’ meant when she saw it in the body of the email like that.”(LATimes)

We may be treated to an unsophisticated government employee as C-I-C, and one who does not listen to warnings from the FBI about security.

It's a two-fer: a woman at the helm and an unsophisticated one!

Tom Bowler

Frau,

Never went to summer camp, though I don't consider myself deprived because of it. And I didn't do so well on the education front the first time around, so I'm not sure how re-education will do me any good.

Didn't the Democrats already designate free speech areas a couple of DNC conventions ago.

I don't know if I'm hopeful or fearful.

Captain Hate

Tammy Bruce has said that any true feminist is horrified at the thought of a helpless shrew like Rodham being the first woman President.

Lovely wedding yesterday for our son and his bride in a small country church, carried off with warmth, style, and grace.

At the reception, for their dance, they chose a waltz. During the planning, my wife suggested they learn some basic steps so that it would be true ballroom dancing.

They have been so busy, planning the wedding, building an addition on their home-to-be, working at their day jobs.

While juggling all of that, they raised the reception to another level: a 3-1/2 minute choreographed waltz worthy of Dancing with the Stars.

In secret, they drove 30 miles to Syracuse three evenings a week for twenty-two lessons plus practicing at home. Stunning. A lovely show put on for the benefit of all their guests.

How nice of them to exceed expectations for us. It leads us to believe their marriage will exceed expectations, too.

Now my good wife and I get to relax and recover.

Captain Hate

Congrats sbw.

Joel Kotkin has had it with the Zombie Democrat party of today. Despite his rejection of Trump, he really shows who the Dems of Today are, how repulsive they are and how bad they are for the country. There are many good points in his j'accuse article.

"What happened to My Party?" For virtually all of my adult life, I have been a registered Democrat. But as the party has abandoned critical commitments to color-blind racial equality, upward mobility and economic growth, I have moved on to become a registered independent. This makes me part of the fastest-growing “party” in America – the politically homeless.

daddy on iPad  I wanna' be a public servant


Let's see, a Muslim died valiantly 12 years ago fighting in a war for which Hillary Clinton voted, therefore neither Donald Trump nor anyone else is allowed ever again to have opinions on how many Muslims we should import into the United States.

Do I have that correct?

Has anyone ever explained why after OBL was purportedly killed he was allegedly given a proper Muslim burial?

Great point TK. The frogs aren't burying the Islamist murderers of that Christian Priest in Normandy, and attention ought to be paid to who and what does bury him because, as Obama and Khan tell us, Terrorists aren't Islamic. So let's sprinkle a little pork blood in the grave, and...

daddy,I read your comment about Kerry Kennedy on one of the previous threads. Funny story...earlier this year the daughter was at an early morning event and was minding her own business when someone tapped her on the shoulder. The person said to her,where did you get that? The daughter said,this old thing?She thought the person meant her jacket. The daughter said,oh at Walmart. The person said oh no,I mean where did you get that,pointing at the Starbucks cup in her hand.
The daughter laughed telling me the story,because the person was Kerry Kennedy.

gotta let this one roll around in the ole' brain bucket for a while ...

"America's greatness is built on the principles of liberty and preserved by the men and women who wear the uniform to defend it. As I have said on numerous occasions, a religious test for entering our country is not reflective of these fundamental values. I reject it. Many Muslim Americans have served valiantly in our military, and made the ultimate sacrifice. Captain Khan was one such brave example. His sacrifice—and that of Khizr and Ghazala Khan—should always be honored. Period."

Thanks Speaker Ryan.

I don't recall about Jefferson, Brad thor had some thoughts before he went rabid, but this was the precursor event,

http://www.usconstitution.net/tripoli.html

a little like estrich's limited hangout, concessions don't work,

there's also another apocryphal example attributed to ibn saud, he was petitioned by two sets of claimants to include churches or alcohol, among the rules of what would become the aramco concession, he told them to chose
which priority, they said alchohol, he mused for a while and then reproached them, saying if you had requested churches I would have granted you both, as you requested alcohol, I grant you neither,

jimmyk

I don't recall about Jefferson, Brad thor had some thoughts before he went rabid, but this was the precursor event,

Yes, if Mr. Khan thinks Jefferson is so great he probably is unfamiliar with that bit of American history. Whatever Jefferson may have thought in the abstract about Islam, in practice he saw its practitioners without any rose-colored glasses, unlike our current leaders.

Typical Jefferson: Some dreamy ideals in the abstract, but when push comes to shove very pragmatic.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

This will sound stupid but my heart was pounding a little for Jimmy Walker.
He's been such a good player the last couple of years when it didn't count and I'm such a sucker for an underdog that I was really pulling for him.
And between Day's eagle on 18 and virtually Walker's only mistake there it had a pretty dramatic finish.

As an aside, as a southpaw and from some French Canuck stock on my pop's side I was always a bit of a Mike Weir fan.

A reminder...the Boston Islamic murderer ended up being buried in a Muslim graveyard in Virginia because nobody would claim his body.

A Muslim graveyard. Why would that be?

squaredance

Khan does not have the intellectual heft or the educational depth to even vaguely understand the founding of this country, or even what America is. In the absence of that, he does not have the cultural bearings to understand it either.

He understands America--and it is a deeply flawed understanding--from the vantage of the "propositional, multicultural America" hogwash the Left puts out, coupled with a "legalistic" understanding of the country, and one can bet that the latter is decidedly 3rd rate too.

This is an clearly underlined by his extraordinary arrogance in standing before this nation waving the constitution in our faces. This is revolting in the extreme. Imagine a white Christian moving to a Muslim country and then standing up and shaking the Koran at the citizens there.

Nations are not propositional in essence--those that think America primarily "is an idea" have little understanding of anything. Nations exist in the real world in real places with real histories, and they are built by real people over generations. The is much more to being an American than taking the oath of citizenship. At best, this is a starting point down that path.

Mr. Khan does not know what he is talking about, and that the Democrats put him out there like that just shows how fundamentally flawed and dangerous is their comprehension and apprehension of of our Nation, polity, and indeed our Civilization.

They need to be called on it.

Miss Marple 2

buccaneer morgan

we are a propositional nation, first other than that it becomes a tract of land like any other,

Hillary PR Team ‏@OnMessageForHer 51m51 minutes ago
Do YOU have a personal tragedy Trump had nothing to do with that could nonetheless be cynically leveraged to attack him? Please contact us!

squaredance

NO we are not a propositional nation. I most stridently disagree. This has been noxious notion for perhaps the last 45 years or so, and it has been put forward by sections in both the right and the left, but it most decidedly not true. We certainly did jot consider ourselves this prior to the 60s and the vast waves of immigration that followed, no matter what the Propaganda of the Left may say. You are much to young to remember this.

There is no such thing, and in flies in the face of all History, Philosophy, and common sense.

Nations are inhabited by a people, who create it, and Nations are rather different things than States. This distinction is obscured in America due to the long continuity of our State, but it is merely obscured, not absent. The left and the rightist globalists push the propositional nonsense in order to destroy it. If America is to be restored, this must be abandoned.

Lastly, I cannot parse this phrase:
"first other than that it becomes a tract of land like any other". What do you mean here.

Janet the expert

That's good Momto2!

buccaneer morgan

that's not the proposition, what has kept us together even through the strife of the mid 19th century, albeit imperfectly, a nation's identity is the glue that holds it together,

DrJ

DrJ, it wasn't me

Uh huh.

As your punishment here is Liszt, Solti, Chicago:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJmZPWJTuuY

squaredance

Again, I cannot parse grammatically what you are say.

If you are saying that the notion of America being "an idea" is what kept us together after the Civil War, you could not be more wrong. What held us together was the fact that the north and the south were basically the same people: Englishmen and Celts, with a smattering of northern Europe, with traditions and culture in the country long before it was the USA, and whose forbears had a part, often a large part, in the creation of that state. Not "propositional" at all.

In fact the creation of the broader USA herald by the Civil War really to the rest of the 190th century to come into full bloom and was only accomplished by the settling of the West.

Threadkiller

a nation's identity is the glue that holds it together,

You and I both know the nation's founders were ok with dual identities. Especially when it came to CIC.

Yeargh

really to the rest of the 190th century = really took the rest of the 19th century

buccaneer morgan

well I was pointing out the inflection point, however, denied that proposition that 'all men are created equal' and what flows from it, has a lot to do with where we find ourselves now,

buccaneer morgan

effendi will rationalize this as well,

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/07/belgian-priest-stabbed-asylum-seeker-home-offering-man-assistance/

squaredance

I would say that "where we are now" has much more to do with the wave of Central and Southern Europeans in the late 19th and early 20 century than anything else.

Here the meaning of "all men are created equal" becomes radically transformed from the older sense, that sense being that there were not separate political structures for an aristocracy. It merely meant that all were citizens and not subject, and that all stand as notional "equals before the ballot box and the courts. This was possible because of the fact that we were the same people. It then morphed into the notion that "equality" meant that one section could pillage another section in the name of "equality".

These waves eventually gave us the disaster of the New Deal and the Democrat coalition, and we have be struggling to preserve us as a nation (and state) ever since. We are at the final breaking point of that assault on this nation.


This is why the very idea of a propositional nation is so noxious.

If we do not confront it soon we will not have a nation at all. What will replace it will be neither nation or state but a wholly artificial construct that cannot possibly endure, followed by chaos, tyranny, and eventual complete civilization collapse.

All of history points to this; it will be no different for us.
