Wow! Another thread. Thanks, Tom! -- First?

Old Lurker

As you watch (I say "you" because you won't see ME watching) those Hollywood A**holes patting themselves on their backs, take some solace in this (from Drudge):

From the Vanity Fair article:

As they stood there chatting, the screenwriter noticed that a tiny droplet of rain remained on the actor’s shoulder. Politely, as they spoke, he brushed it off. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, an employee from the production’s wardrobe department rushed over to berate him. “That is not your job,” she scolded. “That is my job.”

Old Lurker

Another day...another grin:

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump signed an order on Monday that will seek to dramatically pare back federal regulations by requiring agencies to cut two existing regulations for every new rule introduced.

"This will be the biggest such act that our country has ever seen. There will be regulation, there will be control, but it will be normalized control," Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office, surrounded by a group of small business owners.

Trump's latest executive action will prepare a process for the White House to set an annual cap on the cost of new regulations, a senior official told reporters ahead of the signing.

For the rest of fiscal 2017, that cap on new regulations would be $0, the official said on customary condition of anonymity."

Buccaneer, if you've come over here, I just saw that comment about the Moroccan Jews on a comment at a link I'd followed from another link. I was probably a little quick off the mark, but I don't want the vicious, vile left to have any kind of propaganda moment.

As I was saying Joan there's something wrong when you attack any house of worship, but that rule isn't observed in Syria or Yemen, its acceptable in Germany to attack synagogues, they block out an instance in some other German town to assault a cathedral.

ONE OF THE KEY SCENES IN "THE LAST EMPEROR" IS THE EXILING OF THE IMPERIAL EUNUCHS FROM THE FORBIDDEN CITY, WHO PROCEED TO DEMONSTRATE THEIR ANGUISH BY WAVING THEIR MUMMIFIED MASCULINITY AND HOWLING.
Sound familiar?

hrtshpdbox

Anyone see that dummy Dick Durbin on one of the shows yesterday, promising he'd be happy to consider any "moderate" that the president might nominate to the Court? How many moderates did Obama offer up?

Meanwhile dummies on our side of the aisle, i.e. McCain and Graham, think it's just awful that the president is doing what he said he would do. I read some nonsense from Time magazine this morning, celebrating that Republicans are abandoing ship and in a tizzy about what's going on; what Time doesn't mention, though, is that all of those people were never on the ship in the first place.

I support allowing legitimate political refugees who bode us no ill will entry into the U.S.; I think humanitarian efforts are a responsibility we must assume. But President Trump's immigration EO doesn't preclude that from happening, in due time - safety first, America first. Going into the ninth day, I haven't seen one action from this administration that I even remotely disagree with. I'd love to hear that the next EO supports profiling travelers in an attempt to nab the bad guys, the way Israel does it.

Buckeye

The idea that the left will make much progress with this "punch some people in the face" meme is simply laughable.

Bubba thinks that when they say things like "seek to destroy the weak and the disenfranchised and the marginalized” it describes his situation almost perfectly.

He is also just waiting for a libtard to "make his day".

Old Lurker

I would support trading McCain and Graham for any 100 unvetted visitors from anywhere in the ME.

"punch some people in the face"

That is an OLD leftist idea. Can't that actor come up with something new?

Hell, the Dems were paying people to attack Trump supporters.

Instead of - " we will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face "

He should have said - 'we HAVE BEEN punching people in the face'.

Pesky blinders is a much better show, William Murphy was robbed.

Joan

I don't support any immigration until we have absorbed the number flooding in here the past decade or two -- it was a 'take my breath away' moment yesterday as I watched one tv report that over 300,000 ME were arriving on our shores just yesterday. Honestly? 300,000 every day for a month or so adds up. I wonder how many we'd see if that continues ad nauseam?

And, I think that guy at the leftist SAG awards is a bloated, hypocritical moron. They are hypocrites.

NPR: Starbucks Chairman and CEO Howard Schultz says his company plans to hire 10,000 refugees in the next five years in the 75 countries where it does business.

So Trump's order gets companies like this to get off their butt and help refugees. The Donald strikes again.

As some one put it, wynona Ryder was the smart one at the sag awards (she was laughing and smirking through the speech)

windansea

hmmm the Quebec shooting coverage sure has dropped down

Funny how words like Mohamed and Aloha Snackbar can cause a story to plummet

Stephanie despicable me

Joan the 300K figure is not refugees but plane travelers. That includes all people coming into the country including citizens. Out of 300K some less than 1000 were detained.

henry

A bit more on Trump coming to Milwaukee on Thursday. Maybe he will do an EO on govt unions or something while Schumer is freaked about the SC pick.

Old Lurker

Speaking of GOPe.

Wonder how long they think they can hide behind the rocks before it occurs to them to start supporting the objectives of the voters who elected Trump?

I do not think they have any idea how little we care about the antics of Schumer and Warren and Durbin and the rest since that is just exactly what we expected of them.

But if the followers of Ryan and McConnell think that they can avoid our wrath for long, I pray they are sadly mistaken, and that the pain, when they feel it, is intense.

Joan

Well, thanks, Stephanie! :) I was astonished yesterday -- so I quit watching. Sometimes the news is so ugly that I give up.

I laugh at myself. :)

Also, the report I happened to catch was backed up with a video of distraught hijab wearing women, and I (and I acknowledge that this is bad) have a visceral reaction of loathing when I see women here in the US wearing hijabs.

Please, don't anyone try and convince me it's their right to be stuck home, unable to drive cars, and having their clits shaved off is their choice. What? American women don't have to follow all of those rules? I'm astonished again.

On a lighter note:

Though there's a good argument for actually cutting them in half (since we are normalizing violence).

Old Lurker

MM, soon I hope Trump ends every such video opportunity with a request that, if you like what you see, contact your Republican member and tell them we need a cabinet and legislative action to match our goals.

And "yesterday", not at some distant date in the future, maybe.

BTW, one of those clips from Ryan last week, speaking from the taxpayer funded "retreat" for those hardworking politician, suggested that as soon as they get back from this vacation, they will tackle some of the other things they hope they might have maybe by the time of their "August Vacation" (OK, he said "Recess"). You know when you pencil in this break and that break, while getting ready for the longer breaks, wowza is it difficult to make things happen. Donchaknow.

Femall. Get up early and go to work when Trump does.

Henry, the right response of every one of us when asked for money should be "Sorry. I have no intention of writing you a check until sixty days prior to the next election, and the size of that check will depend on how much I think you have helped us with our new agenda. So leave me alone until then and get to work."

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I am happy that he moved up the SC announcement as I predicted somewhere yesterday (maybe here). I didn't expect prime time, but that's even better.

Reinforces that he IS the president, removes at least an hour of Trump bashing on a couple of cable networks, and makes the newsrooms scramble for research and lining up judicial analysts.

Confusion to the enemy!

OL: "Wonder how long (GOPe) think they can hide behind the rocks before it occurs to them to start supporting the objectives of the voters who elected Trump?"
It's already spent years and years hating on TEA people.

"if the followers of Ryan and McConnell think that they can avoid our wrath for long, I pray they are sadly mistaken, and that the pain, when they feel it, is intense."
Imagine Trump deciding to enjoy a comfortable life, not running. Imagine, say, Jeb winning the nom. Would the GOP still exist? Hillary would be extending Prog policies at warp speed and cementing SCOTUS. May or may not involve conscious thought but GOPe depends on the People not being able to replace them while simultaneously resisting the Dem agenda.

Maryrose "... says Dems will filibuster SC candidate and don't know who it is yet?"

Thus it will be until they feel appropriate pain. And that won't happen until the R's get some of their own.

In my dreams, McConnell announces a floor vote on the entire cabinet this Friday at noon. Then another at noon three weeks later for the SCOTUS nominee. Announce there will be a meeting of the rules committee 24 hours in advance of each of those dates.

PD

Maybe. Isn't is pretty common to find stashes of porn in the hideouts of jihadis after our guys kill them? Swimsuit issue would be mild in comparison.

Merkley is the fool who put up those inauguration crowd photos at Mulvaney's confirmation hearing.

Old Lurker

SBW, the problem with "No not yet" is that to a politician that means well then I will ask you again in the morning. Pushing the check off to some fixed future date pending verified proof of actual productivity, frees them from calling you back, and focuses their minds on doing something.

Oh, really? This guy sez it won't matter:

http://nypost.com/2017/01/29/why-the-supreme-court-fight-is-sure-to-go-nuclear/

However, Reid left one exception when he altered the rules: the Supreme Court. So while Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might abhor trashing tradition, he might have no choice but to use his power to end the filibuster altogether.

Unless he can persuade eight Democrats to back Trump’s SCOTUS nominee while keeping all 52 Republicans in line, McConnell will have to go nuclear.

Looks like the Searchlight Pederast left the Dems in a bit of a pickle. We'll see if McTurtle has the stones.

I thought McTurtle already said he wouldn't go nuclear on SCOTUS. Fool that he is--even if that's the outcome he wants, giving it away displays Zippy-like bargaining skillz.

I think it's time to send Timken a letter to get a primary challenger ready for Portman in five years. He seems to be trying to be indistinguishable from the Restraining Order, which certainly wasn't the message of his campaign.

OL,

No Rules Committee in the Senate. Majority leader runs everything and makes the rules. This will be a Mitch moment as to how he handles filibuster and cloture. He is going to need all his members including the RINO's (you know who they are) plus at least 8 Dems.

I think a guy like Machin may come over, then you have to get 7 more, likely from those states Trump won and are up for re-election in 2018.

Heh. I like thinking about Mitt Romney with his nose pressed to the glass.

Also, this should get Egg McMuffin in another snit since he likes to pose all sinless and constitutional and such.

Trump told them he was going to show them how to win, and it looks like he's well on his way.

Old Lurker

OK, Jack. Then I would modify my notice for each Friday noon vote to say "First order of business will be to approve a change in the Filibuster Rule as to the upcoming vote, and then then the up or down vote will follow. You can be back in the Dining Room slurping Bean Soup by 12:30 each day".

There is zero chance McConnell will find 60 votes any time in the foreseeable future for the SCOTUS person. 50 + the VP will be hard enough.

McQueeg will never forget the blow to his image by Trump in the primaries (which surely added to his simpleton willingness to spread that "dossier" garbage which most house pets' IQs would know was bogus) so the best we can hope from that senile menace is to abstain.

He held the nomination until the election of Trump. He has the stones -- real issue is whether McCain or some of the other Republicans will agree to killing the filibuster for this. I'm pretty sure they will, but McCain thwarted a previous effort to kill the filibuster on nominees, so no guarantees.

As an observation, a leader can lead only if he has enough people to follow him.

he Lone Ranger's Last Request

The Lone Ranger was ambushed and captured
by an enemy Indian War Party.

The Indian Chief proclaims,

"So, YOU are the great Lone Ranger"...

"In honor of the Harvest Festival,

YOU will be executed in three days."

"Before O kill you, I grant you three requests"

"What is your FIRST request?'

The Lone Ranger responds, "I'd
like to speak to my horse."

The Chief nods and Silver is brought
before the Lone Ranger who whispers in
Silver's ear, and the horse gallops away.

Later that evening, Silver returns with
a beautiful blonde woman on his back.

As the Indian Chief watches, the blonde enters the Lone Ranger's tent and spends the night.

The next morning the Indian Chief admits he's impressed.

"You have a very fine and loyal horse",

"But I will still kill you in two days."

"What is your SECOND request?"

The Lone Ranger again asks to speak to his horse.

Silver is brought to him, and he again whispers in the horse's ear.
As before, Silver takes off and disappears over the horizon.

Later that evening, to the Chief's surprise, Silver again returns,
this time with a voluptuous brunette, more attractive than the blonde.
She enters the Lone Rangers tent and spends the night.

The following morning the Indian Chief is again impressed.
"You are indeed a man of many talents,"
"But I will still kill you tomorrow."

"What is your LAST request?"

The Lone Ranger responds, "I'd like to speak to my horse...alone."

The Chief is curious, but he agrees, and Silver is brought to the Lone Ranger's tent.

Once they're alone, the Lone Ranger grabs Silver by both ears, looks him square in the eye and says,

"Listen Very Carefully!!! FOR...THE...LAST...TIME...

"BRING POSSE!"

Not to speak harshly of the absent, particularly because there were plenty of positives, but some nameless people who used to excuse doing nothing because "we don't have the numbers", as if we put a bunch of ten key adding machines into positions of responsibility, infuriated me. Politics is about persuading people to commit to a course of action. Reagan understood that but then precious few bothered because it was too hard or something.

The fretting over 404Care is a good example of why government keeps growing. Clearly some people (recipients of subsidies, mainly) benefited from it. Many others (people who lost their plans, doctors, are paying more) were harmed.

Yet somehow merely to revert to the status quo ante is deemed politically impossible because...some people benefited, and those benefits can't be taken away. Why not? What about the people who benefited from the status quo ante? Why was it ok to harm them?
