First uh-den.

That YouTube video, was of CNN encouraging Ohioans to wear hijabs in solidarity with Moo-slims.

How about moderate Moo-slims gathering on the statehouse steps of the capitol and renounce sharia law en masse.

Be in solidarity with the infidels....see wha happa, Lucy.

.@Carrier just confirmed "We're pleased to have reached a deal with Pres-elect Trump & VP-elect Pence to keep close to 1,000 jobs in Indy"

Good for President Elect Trump!

Christy stays Gov NJ,
Ross for Sec Commerce
Mnuchin for Sec Treasury

per "reports"

Ooh the juvenile thrill of being 6th, 7th, or 8th!! I like it!

That Carrier deal is really important to Indianspolis! Good job Trump!

Fresh Air, deplorably

Interesting that both Mnuchin and Ross had been predicted over two weeks ago. Ross is older than dirt but really smart. Mnuchin, is of course from Goldman $achs, which is a fox I would rather leave out of the henhouse.

Delighted that Crispy stays in his New Jersey frying pan. Maybe after he loses his governorship Trump will name him ambassador to Kazakhstan.

Miss Marple

Seems to me Christie was measured and found wanting.

buccaneer morgan,

Most of those poeple and the writer seem to be terified that as upper management or upper middle class professionals, they are not getting the respect they feel they deserve.

Those people have spent years looking down their noses at the blue collar guys, and now, when it's apparent that their attitude has caused a backlash, they are all upset and double down on telling us how stupid we are.

They are going to be wandering in the wilderness for a long time.

henry - drunk on prog tears

Closing arguments complete... Now waiting for the judge to do whatever Dane County nutjobs elected her to do.

clarice

Thanks, Henry--I'm waiting with bated breath.

Free James D!

they are going to be wandering in the wilderness for a long time.

However long that time is, it won't be long enough.

henry - drunk on prog tears

From the reddit live commenting, it seems a stretch to grant Stein's demand. But I'm not trained in bike path penumbras.

Another Bob

Henry, she's a Dane county judge? Not a state judge?

henry - drunk on prog tears

Decision imminent.

buccaneer morgan

henry - drunk on prog tears

Another Bob, all state judges at all levels are elected in their district. She is a Circuit judge for Dane County.

henry - drunk on prog tears

DENIED! So normal recount starting Thursday (except The Dane County clerk is going manual anyway).

jimmyk

Even a judge who is sympathetic to Stein and Curb Dive would put a stop to this, for their sake. Time to move on to the next stage of grief.

Another Bob

Thx Henry.

buccaneer morgan

is that much sodium intake, healthy henry, what does that mean in practice?

henry - drunk on prog tears

Judges in Dane County are lefties, in Waukesha County conservatives. Thus the change around Act 10 time to appeal of laws going to a different circuit than the trial. Plus the stakes on a Prosser v Kloppenburg recount for control of the Supreme Court.

clarice

Henry, thank you!

buccaneer morgan

if there was some expectation something would happen, maddow would have been on it,

jimmyk

Ok, so this judge was only deciding on mandating a hand recount, not whether the recount should occur at all. So they'll get it done by the 13th?

And what is happening in MI and PA?

Mnuchin's a good pick. Smart, level-headed, guy. My boss says he's o.k.

Tom Price appointment is smart politics. My people are telling me that Trump has no intention of doing anything to the ACA,Medicare or medic-aid, so he's taking on Price(who won't write legislation as a Cabinet secretary) to give the impression they're about to gut the programs. They're just going to drag their ass on the whole thing for 4 years. Smart.

I give these guys credit for some fancy Political maneuvering.

The wall's not getting built, the Iran deal is staying place, the climate accord is staying in place, the Cuban deal is staying in place, the.....oh just about everything's going to stay the same whoooo hooooooooooooooooo(except for taxes and daca).

Porchlight

Hand recount denied, regular machine recount proceeds. Nice work, judge! Should be speedy. Although the counties can hand recount if they wish.

Big win.

On to Michigan now. PA is decided, right? Like 2.2% of the state is going to a recount.

PA is decided, right? Like 2.2% of the state is going to a recount.

Not sure what you mean by the 2.2%. I thought they missed the deadline in PA, but were going to go to court try to force the recount anyway. That's probably the most absurd of the three, since the difference is 60,000 votes, more than 1%.

buccaneer morgan

kind of awkward.

Can't imagine Romney would have stopped after dinner with Trump to deliver remarks to the press without Trump's permission. Yet, what he said was uninteresting boilerplate with no new insights or news. Very odd.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

DebinNC,

Did you see it?

I think he didn't get the job.

Just what I read, jimmyk. The whole thing is so confusing. On purpose.

Congratulations to Mitt Romney on being nominated Secretary of State.

This completes our invasion of the Trump cabinet. The doors for deal making between Republicans and Democrats can begin.

It is business as usual in Washington.


jimmyk

You think Trump told him right there? I thought he said something like "We'll have to see."

I think he maybe thought he was going to get the offer, but as the post right below yours shows, more auditions tomorrow.

"We'll see" isn't exactly a positive sign.

If Romney doesn't get the job, Ann is going to tie him to the roof of the station wagon for the drive home.

LOL, Iggy!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Does anyone remember the choice of Secretary of State being such a big deal?

Actually, I don't remember any cabinet positions being followed with such interest.

Having all those people come into Trump Tower has magnified the importance (and the glamour) of the posts.

I am enjoying the heck out of this.

dublindave

6.00 am tomorrow morning. My people are telling me that's when the announcement for Romney's position is going to take place.


Well played, Kelleyanne(with keen direction from Herr bannon), well played. Create tension within the Trump camp over the Romney pick so that when it's announced you can play up the perception that it was a difficult, controversial choice.


It was always going to be Mitt, which is why he agreed to be humiliated for 6 days.

I think the Alt-right's gonna see through this childish charade.

Are you trying to get back in Jack's good graces?

jimmyk

Does anyone remember the choice of Secretary of State being such a big deal?

Only in '08 because of the question of whether it would go to Hillary despite the obvious hatred they had for each other. I suppose there's a sort of parallel with Donald and Willard.

Buckeye

I don't remember anything about Zero's transition.

Probably selective amnesia.

DebinNC

The only good thing about Corker as SoS is it would take him out of the Senate. He's prime "Gang of..." material, and McConnell will have enough problems without headline seeking gangsters monkeying up the works.

An Open Letter to My Boss, IBM CEO Ms. Ginni Rometty
Elizabeth Wood | Nov 28, 2016
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/open-letter-my-boss-ibm-ceo-ms-ginni-rometty-elizabeth-wood

Quit because IBM CEO endorsed "Trump plan"

jimmyk

Actually if you drill down to Rometty's actual letter, it doesn't do what this nut claims ("Your letter offered the backing of IBM’s global workforce in support of his agenda that preys on marginalized people"). It merely congratulates Trump and shares a bunch of pretty mainstream ideas related to IBM's activities. For example:

You’ve said we need to invest in America’s infrastructure, and we agree. As we build big, let’s also build smart. The country should focus on infrastructure investments that incorporate Internet of Things (IoT) technology and artificial intelligence to improve performance.

Pretty boilerplate stuff. I think this ninny was upset not because of anything the CEO said, but because the CEO didn't follow the lead of Pepsi's CEO and badmouth Trump. I'm sure IBM is saying "Good riddance."

Tim Blair documents a rash of phony "hate incidents" attributed to Trump supporters that were actually staged by the "victims." Mostly on college campuses, naturally.

As an example:

In the latest case of a faked hate crime, a 20-year-old man has admitted he made it up when he told Malden cops he was harassed by two men proclaiming it’s “Trump country now.”

narc @ 1205,

I received an email on Sunday - - along with, no doubt hundreds of not thousands of others - - from the 'Trump Michigan' organization asking if I'd volunteer to be a monitor of the recount process.

Yes? Well okay then, please go to this website to register. When would you be able to monitor? A number of time-of-day options are presented.

Clearly, the Team Trump, or should I say PE45 team, don't want to be caught flat-footed.

Mish is an econ blogger and Ron/Rand Paul loyalist. His views on foreign policy can be off-putting.

He has a couple of interesting posts on Euro issues this week.

The right is surging in Austria.
https://mishtalk.com/2016/11/29/juncker-pleads-no-referendums/
"European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker issued a warning to Austrian presidential candidate Norbert Hofer, regarding referendums. Hofer, an anti-immigration, candidate is in a tight race for the election coming up on December 4."

And similarly the right is surging in the Netherlands. How many times have you heard that Geert Wilders is "far right"? How many times have your heard his actual words? This post includes an extended quote of Wilders' statement to a Dutch court, the one which is hearing a case brought against him for speaking out against Muslim immigration.
https://mishtalk.com/2016/11/30/multiple-simultaneous-threats-nexit-next/
The election is planned for March 15, 2017. Not sure when the trial is expected to complete.
Wilders: "..I tell you, the battle of the elite against the people will be won by the people. ... Common sense will prevail over politically correct arrogance. Because everywhere in the West, we are witnessing the same phenomenon."

buccaneer morgan @ 11:01,

Tweeting demeans the presidency, huh?

Well, I have had enough of vulgar rap singers in the White House, interviews on "Between Two Ferns", and trashy gifts given to the Queen of England, for which the Times never once objected.

They REALLY hate that he tweets. They are going to go ballistic when he starys the rallies on Thursday.
