Good Morning!
Looks like a beautiful day.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

There is video of the joint statement from last night.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oW_LPx3ts0

Note below it YouTube says "This video is unlisted so think twice before sharing."

Bah. We need a new internet where the Google/Twitter/Facebook people can't interfere.

Thanks Clarice!

Pagar, you beat me to the punch!

Excellent pieces, Clarice!

Sophistry as practiced by the 9th needs no explanation.

Thank you all for the good wishes.
It was a sweet ceremony. After a short prayer service with some accompanying guitar playing singer gifting us with two familiar wedding standards, our pastor had us all stand, then seat our selves as he asked
"Who has been married 1-5 years?" "6-10?" 10-15?"

Left standing at the end: a couple married 58 years, and one married 61 years.

And interestingly---no one there was married 15-25 years! Understandably--remembering how busy we were then on Saturday nights, transporting children and trying to have some semblance of a social life ourselves.

And then--champagne in the vestibule!

I wonder how they define "terrorist" since they left off Washington mall shooter Turkish-born Arcan Cetin, who murdered multiple strangers in September.

Why aren't the data from European countries just as relevant? If this were some new disease (which it is), and a number of refugees in Europe had it, would MSM idiots like Judy Woodruff be saying, "No refugee to the US has ever had this disease, so we should let them in?"

As to this, any minute we'll hear from such journalists that lots of non-refugees and white male Christians have committed terrorism too, so this is no reason to keep out refugees.

And finally, if an when refugees do indeed carry out terrorism here, it will be Trump's fault for disrespecting them.

Pagar, a bacon, ham and Pork Roast supporter

Another thought on the matter.

So the grey whore, Amazon Unprime and three dimwitted black robed tyrants (is it out of deference to the lawyers here that we don't have a no holds barred discussion of just how unintelligent a lot most of these jobs for life judges are?) couldn't be bothered to find out the facts about terrorists from the seven countries? Excellent reporting imo.

I got sidetracked yesterday and didn't comment on that trash country from the southern border about to spend large amounts of money to keep their illegal vermin from being tossed back making the dump smell even more like diarrhea. Isn't it time to talk about how NAFTA has been about as effective as Landslide Lyndon's war on poverty as far as transforming it into something other than a client state of places that have functioning economies. With their resources, they should be at India's level of growth instead of depending on the kindness of strangers. Ultimately it comes down to a national lack of character and too GD bad if some find that offensive.

Retired Lt. Gen. Hal Moore passed away late Friday night. He would have turned 95 years old on Monday, and the Army hero known for saving most of his men and surviving a fierce standoff despite being outnumbered 10-to-1 in the first major battle of the Vietnam War proved to be a ferocious fighter to the very end.

Someone already posted the NYT link for this story. Repubs at the state level NOT dithering like Congress. Yay!

State G.O.P. Leaders Move Swiftly as Party Bickers in Congress
While Republicans in Washington appear flummoxed by the complexities of one-party rule, struggling with issues from repealing the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, to paying for President Trump’s promised wall on the Mexican border, rising party leaders in the states seem far more at ease and assertive. Republicans have top-to-bottom control in 25 states now, holding both the governorship and the entire legislature, and Republican lawmakers are acting with lightning speed to enact longstanding conservative priorities.

In states from New England to the Midwest and across the South, conservative lawmakers have introduced or enacted legislation to erode union powers and abortion rights, loosen gun regulations, expand school-choice programs and slash taxes and spending.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Arresting guys after they have come to commit terrorism rather than keeping them out and preventing then from commuting terrorist jn the first place is the damned, dumb cluck left's definition of "worked".

Maybe we should apply that to teachers and camp counsellors; come one, come all and when you're done raping our kids we'll catch some of you and you'll get yours.

JimNorCal,

Sorry bout that. The weekend was a broken field play. Planned for 3-4 days and collapsed to just over one. The LG meet was even tentative due to 17 being closed for most of the time. (When we last tried a meet there 3 (?) yrs ago, our pal lived in LG, but is now over the ridge in Santa Cruz.)

Speaking of that last attempted meetup, has anyone kept track of the lawyer who was posting during that time? I recall he lived near Jim, but worked in SF.

CH, your daughter will probably know the current details by the time you get there, but all the roads in/out of SC were hammered for a variety of reasons this last week.

OT in another direction, I ended up with a brand new Ford Fusion Hybrid and was quite impressed with it. Probably put a couple hunnert miles on it doing the usual Cal freeway 80 and ended up pumping 4 gal back in. It was, however, a little anemic when you tried to go from 70 to 80 on those passes over the ridge in the East Bay. If I was ever stuck doing the daily commute again (never!), I'd seriously consider it.

Unless a Yemeni had blown one of these three 9th Circuit judges up in the judge's chambers, these three folks were going to rule against Trump. That's just the way the 9th Circus rolls.

Captain Hate

Laura Ingraham: a new better EO will happen shortly. This is a distraction from other campaign promises. Julie Pace: Trump is privately upset at the rollout and knows his followers care more about ending ZippyCare. Michael Needham: the ninth circus is absolutely wrong and the security of the country demands that something be done. Laura is arguing that screwing this up would have long term consequences. Juan is being dumb about the courts.

Pace: the Flynn story has changed multiple times and it isn't cool to lie to Pence. Laura is skeptical about all these leaks.

Captain Hate

Needham: the donks are in big trouble with paleface squaw as the face of their party. Attacks on Ivanka need to be hung around Schoooomer's pencil neck. Juan: Ivanka's troubles are all Donald's fault and High Cheekbones is a great civil rights icon. Pace: Needham is a meanie. Laura: a lot of these "protesters" are criminals and Zippy and congressional donks need to stop encouraging it. Juan's cooter hurts over so called judge comments. Pace is upset that substantial talk on issues gets sidetracked by tweets.

I almost didn't watch this but am very glad I did.

There wasn't IRS trouble for OFA.

"Run by old Obama aides and campaign workers, federal tax records show “nonpartisan” OFA marshals 32,525 volunteers nationwide. Registered as a 501(c)(4), it doesn’t have to disclose its donors, but they’ve been generous. OFA has raised more than $40 million in contributions and grants since evolving from Obama’s campaign organization Obama for America in 2013."

Insty linked to a Megan McArdle piece about immigration (and the Democrat Party messaging troubles).

12 overly long paragraphs to say what could have been said in one, which is typical of her. And even then, as usual, she dances around the obvious point for fear of offending her regular readership: the Dems are pushing for totally open borders but know perfectly well that there IS no winning or logical argument for it, so they rely on emotion and lies and slander.

Old Lurker

Had to laugh out loud during church this morning.

Our Episcopal Parish has a new, young priest. I began to smell a rat on the Sunday after the Inauguration when for the first time since I started paying attention in Church back in the 50's, the Book of Common Prayer's prayer for guidance and wisdom for elected officials was not uttered. Not a peep.

Today, his sermon was to educate us in long term trends in the church, which was interesting. But from the original BCP in 1549 in the Reformation, to its big edit in the 1600's and then with minor tweaks after that to "The 1970's when the BCP was rewritten to include laypeople and to provide more focus on the Social Justice which was then becoming important to Episcopalians..."

In 1930 the Episcopal Church had about 1.7M members out of a total population of 123M. By 1970 the church had almost 3.4M members before they "improved" the BCP and started down the SJW path. This year, the church has 1.7M members from a population 2.5 times bigger than 1930.

I exited through the back door so that I would not embarass my wife by connected those dots for him at the front door.

Grrr.

Chuck Schumer doesn't get what he just said.

He is shocked that Trump ran as a populist against both the Dems and the Repubs and now he seems to be betraying the people who voted for him by governing from a far-right position.

Here is a shocker, Chuck, the populist position is further right than the limp wristed aisle reach arounds of the spineless GOPe.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clarice,

Any idea when Kelly is going to start releasing the weekly report of crimes committed by illegals? That should stop a lot of this "poor illegal immigrants" nonsense.

The Founders were well prepared for pobrecita's problem, Clarice.

I saw video of Miller on MTP. Of course the left was jumping all over him for his speaking style (which is a little stiff), accusing him of reading from a script or using a teleprompter, which seems rather unlikely. Substantively he was very good. Chuck was basically left floundering and asking why more countries weren't included in the EO.
