sbw,

That's all they got? An inflated answer to a question going back 30 years because of a "top of my head" during a radio interview. Well at least they chose a clown who is not a lawyer to ask the question and to keep humping the chicken while Sessions answered in completely honest terms and details.

They don't have much and what they do have in regards to the job of the AG is that he should be an activist who makes up the laws and selective enforcement as he goes along. Sessions not having any of it.

Looks like the photog have got Louis Gorhmet a little upset.

It's 'nepotism' if Trump gets advice from his daughter's husband, but A-OK if the first lady tries inflicting single payer or this on us.

Franken emerged from the crowd and charged one male protester, grabbing him with a bear hug from behind and slamming him onto the floor. “I was a wrestler so I used a wrestling move,” Franken said.

Frau Grammatik

Corey Booker and Meryl Streep are just two useful idiots in the yuge basket of dem despicables.


The 60 Minutes program was sandwiched in the middle of a carefully arranged media blitz by NRDC staff. The day after the 60 Minutes program, the Alar story was taped for the Phil Donahue Show. Before and after the 60 Minutes program, Meryl Streep played a prominent speaking role against Alar, including an appearance on the Phil Donahue Show. Streep had been steered to NRDC by Robert Redford after they finished filming Out of Africa. She told him she wanted to get involved in an environmental cause.

The combination of EPA, NRDC, 60 Minutes, Meryl Streep and others worked. By the summer of 1989, the manufacturer voluntarily took Alar of the market.


Others? how about an "old friend" -
The study was wrong. The accusations about Alar were groundless. Still, (David) Fenton was unrepentant: “We designed [the Alar campaign] so that revenue would flow back to the Natural Resources Defense Council from the public,” he told his other clients in an internal memo later reprinted by The Wall Street Journal. “And we sold this book about pesticides through a 900 number."

Fenton boasts he is the midwife of the organic food movement. Daddy Soros is pleased.

“I was a wrestler am a sniveling coward so I used a wrestling coward's move,” Franken said."

Fixed if for you, illegitimate Sen. Al.
Pfui!

the generallyistic deplorable rich

the democrats with bylines have been practicing #fakenews for a while.

Oops had to erase the double underline.

Fenton set up the Real Climate site to push climate alarmism shortly after Steve McIntyre started making waves with his critique of the Crook't Hockey Stick, and several years before Gore made his big hit with The Convenient Untruth. The climate scare has been a tremendously successful piece of propaganda, enriching and empowering a tremendous number of the leftist elite; its success continues its whistled march past the the graveyard, filled with those who thought narrative could overpower nature without time limit.

Clarice Feldman

Yes, frau--how could we forget that? Tough toots for the Washington State apple growers. OTOH I remember the first food scare--it was cranberries which were supposed to kill you cause they were touched by DDT or something--It was just before Thanksgiving. My mother came back from the store with twice the usual amount and said we eat them every year--they've been grown the same way--and this year they are half the price.

I have since viewed all food scares the same way--B.S.

lol I had a big think comment at about 2AM one morning a few days ago pointing that out (the accusation, not that part of the report though). surprised that that would have made it into the report (the evidence is more credible that they fund the activities in Europe, in the US, plenty of others can step into the void, not the least of which is the Dallas Fed or the EPA or Energy).

Most younger Eeyore's smoke marijuana, the most powerful gateway drug in America.

Their parents who smoke it believe it's harmless and "safer than alcohol."

Berkeley isn't a microcosm for the greater population of the US; but it certainly runs sympatico with college-bound youth where "chronic" smokers are made, not born.

Eeyore's who smoke marijuana on average 3 days per week for two years develop "pits" and "holes" in the top regions of their brains. There is a book coming out in 2018 with the photographic evidence for how the brain literally begins to "digest" itself inside a chronic marijuana smoker. (Sorry I can't use pinpoint science on this but I saw the photo masters and heard the author speak in May 2016. Not a crusader, a medical doctor who is investigating the metabolic and physiological effects of "harmless" drugs.)

To my point: our national history will include a chapter on marijuana and its impact on the body politic, the American family, the criminal justice system, and now- American agriculture.

It's enough to make an Eeyore outta the staunchest Tigger if Tigg is operating without information that's likely to be buried away from public view for the sake of the afflicted.

Then there is the backflow of $500 billion to a trillion $ into US banks for laundering.

"A diplomat from Sudan was arrested for allegedly grinding against a woman on a Manhattan subway Monday — but the charges were dropped because he has diplomatic immunity, police sources said.

The 49-year-old diplomat, Mohammad Abdalla Ali, was riding an uptown 4 train at about 2 p.m. when he allegedly approached the 38-year-old woman from behind as the train was leaving Grand Central and rubbed his crotch against her, police sources said.

The final cost of Hillary’s futile bid for the presidency — including monies spent by the Democratic Party and supporting PACS — exceeded $1.2 billion.

Re: gloves, a coworker (who moved here from NH) couldn't believe I didn't have any gloves on yesterday when we were starting to walk out to our cars after work, and the temp was in the single digits. If I wore gloves my hands wouldn't fit in my pockets. I keep them in the car in case I need them.

When I have to shovel snow, I put on a pair of these and then shove my hands into a pair of these, although those prices are far higher than what I'd pay. If it's warm enough - over 25 or so - I skip the double layers.

Dave (in MA)

BTW those gloves at Walmart are $7.50.

If your son works outdoors a lot, I would also recommend the fleece lined work pants from Walmart. $19.97 made by Wrangler and very warm. Several of his friends have now bought some as well for winter outdoor yard work.

Walmart actually has a lot of work clothes. Makes sense and they are definitely blue collar oriented.

Robert Kennedy Jr. says he's accepted job offer from Trump

President-elect Donald Trump met with Robert Kennedy Jr., a prominent vaccine skeptic, on Tuesday. According to incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer, the two discussed “the issues pertaining to vaccines and immunizations.”

After the meeting concluded, Kennedy told reporters that Mr. Trump had asked him to “chair a commission on vaccination safety and scientific integrity.” Kennedy said he told Mr. Trump he would chair such a commission, and that their meeting was held at Mr. Trump’s request.

Hungary plans to crack down on non-governmental organizations linked to billionaire George Soros now that Donald Trump will occupy the White House, according to the deputy head of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party.

The European Union member will use “all the tools at its disposal” to “sweep out” NGOs funded by the Hungarian-born financier, which “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told reporters on Tuesday.

Yes. The MRI studies have been discredited. The author shared evidence shot with actual cameras on cadavers.

Also had some interesting photoslides on light-bearing qualities of certain food sources.

Had slides comparing umbilical cord biopsies from 1980 to those biopsied in 2010 (Yeetch!)illustrating the dramatic uptick of chemical residues.

It was one of those presentations where I stopped taking notes after 5 minutes.

lurkersusie,

That isn't a job offer. It's an independent commission I think.

Trump is skeptical about some of the vaccines. So, amazingly, is Sheryl Atkisson.

I don't know what to think about this. My kids all got vaccinated. I got all the vaccinations, too. No harm to anyone in my family, nor any suspicion of such.

I also know about herd immunity, and a real danger with some of the illegals bringing in stuff like drug-reistant TB and polio.

Maybe the best thing would be to get some public testimony so that people will quit being frightened. On the other hand, I don't like a Kennedy being involved in anything, because criik opportunities areenormous.

Atkisson has done some work on fudged figures at the FDA concerning vaccines. I haven't paid enough attention since vaccine years are behind me.

Again, not happy with a Kennedy.

I hear ya. The "war on" is a con and cover for the banks to launder ever-greater amounts of narco-bucks off the books, IMNSHO.

As a chronic pot smoker from age 18-35, I learned the hard way. Although I enjoyed my fair share of success financially and professionally during those crucial years of young adulthood---- I missed out on a lot as a result of chronic use.

It didn't really occur to me why although the obvious was quite evident. But I received a solid answer one day in the sweat lodge listening to my "anchu" (teacher")pray in the presence of about 30 inmates we were sweating that day.

He said: "Creator, help these young men realize that weed is a danger to them. They sit here before you seeking their own hearts. Help them to understand that weed will hide them from themselves."

That answer came some 14 years after I quit smoking it and growing it on our farms. It was a way of life. It occurred to me that I followed people down a lot of dead trails during my time with weed.

The opportunity cost to weed smoking is unbearably high. I shared this knowledge with my youngest and he's stayed away from weed, although he tried it to see what all the fuss was about. The kids here in Berkeley are sparking up by age 8. And their parents are known to smoke with them.

Baby Kev is clean and he's sober. No one man can foretell the future for any other man. But it does matter if one's elders can explain why "don't do it" is the more prudent course. My folks grew up poor in barrios and smoking weed was the scourge among families---> kids who started smoking were lost to their families.

My anchu drove home the "why." He was a weed smoker for 18 years too. It was the hardest drug for him to quit. We both shared a story about how much we loved not only smoking it but the ritual of handling it, growing it, and sharing it/selling it. (Semi-loads to Chicago?)

But what I realized was that I was searching for my own true medicine: GrandFather White Sage (salvia apiana). Incredible how my relationship with that mother of all healing plants lifted my fascination with the cheeba....the look, the feel, the stickiness of the sap, the cross-pollenating, the crushing, the wrapping and tying of "wands"...the scent.... almost a dead ringer for the Mata.

Only it cleanses and purifies and *never* misleads or lies.

Vaccines... what to believe? Heard from some fellows in May 2016 about the trials and tribulations of the HPV vaccine push on young girls. Big bidness.

We vaccinated all of our kids. We always made sure that the kids were never vaccinated without us present, and that kids were never immune system compromised when getting vaccinated (sometimes the doctors wanted to multi-task and vaccinate on the basis of "while you're here you might as well..." )

It would take a lot of evidence to the contrary to suggest that Big Pharma isn't trying to exploit the reappearance of TB and other eradicated diseases due to lax immigration enforcement. Huge federal subsidies to them for fixing this problema I would imagine.

Jack is Back!

Kev,

All good glove recommendations but I don't know if they could stand up to the USAF Cold Weather survival school at Goose Bay, Labrador.

We went with NWOT Nomex Flight Gloves with hand warmers on ocassion. I think they'd be available in any military supply store near you unless the kids of Berkley have burned them down by now.

Basically the same gloves WW2 gunners used on the bombers as there was no heat and no pressurization.

rse

I knew our windy city lurker would weigh in.

KK-my kids believe that it is ritalin and other attention-span drugs that are the gateway as they make mood alteration a norm from an early age. Then the age 21 drinking minimum up from 18 makes pot and alcohol equally illegal. The equivalence becomes a habit.

I am still trying to catch my breath from this morning when someone tried to break into my house while I was at the grocery store. Husband called me to ask where I was as alarm company had called him. Came home to one garage door up and door wide open and alarm blinking. Found two cats almost immediately but couldn't find the older two and did not want to mention it. Finally an hour later the tomcat appears on stairs and just keeps staring at me. Took him another 30 minutes to slowly come down stairs, Found the other under Red's bed where she has stayed all day.

Alarm went off almost precisely 30 minutes after I left. Not a fun feeling.

"A man walks out to the street and catches a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, 'Perfect timing You're just like Frank.’

Passenger: 'Who?'

Cabbie: 'Frank Feldman. He's a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happened like that to Frank Feldman every single time.'

Passenger: Well, I don't know about that. There are always a few clouds over everybody.'

Cabbie: 'Not Frank Feldman. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star. You should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy.'

Passenger: 'Sounds like he was something really special.'

Cabbie: 'There's more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody's birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse and the whole street blacks out. But Frank Feldman, he could do everything right.'

Passenger: 'Wow, some guy then.'

Cabbie: 'He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Frank, he never made a mistake and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake.

Cabbie: 'Well, I never actually met Frank. He died and I married his wife."
