NYT has to put up with Brooks and Stephens at office parties? They are already burning in hell.

This is the healing Obama brought. Where you are known by your skin color (and whichever of 57 genders you claim), not by the content of your character. Eff that.

All seven swore the same oath of service, and paid the same ultimate price. They honor themselves through their character. I thank them for doing so.

Team Trump’s New Strategy: Vetting More, Betting Less – Wick Media Productions

I’ve spent the past two weeks peeling back the layers of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein like an onion. With every layer I peeled back, I found one deep state connection after another. The network of government lawyers in DC is a dazzling matrix of dinner party pals, Ivy League marriages, and is probably the one place where bipartisanship flourishes; provided you subscribe to naked and uninhibited reciprocity. It’s here, like a yellowed and over-stuffed rolodex, where you will find the seedlings that sprouted the endlessly and awkwardly enduring government career of Rod J. Rosenstein

narc,

Demographics! Plus we were discussing transient professionals the other day. How many residents in this district were born and raised there versus those who have moved there in the last 4 years. I'll bet that there are a lot of transient professionals there. And that changes the voting dynamic.

The Latest: Mueller meets with House intelligence leaders
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Jun 20, 2017, 7:40 PM ET
Email
The Latest on the investigation into Russia's actions in the U.S. election and possible ties to Trump campaign associates (all times EDT):

7:30 p.m.


Leaders of the House Intelligence committee say they met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to ensure their concurrent investigations don't interfere with one another.

Reps. Mike Conaway, a Texas Republican, and Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, issued a brief statement after they met with Mueller late Tuesday. The statement says the meeting was productive but provides no details about their discussion. Both lawmakers had declined to answer questions from reporters about the meeting on Capitol Hill.

Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

The House panel is conducting a separate inquiry into Moscow's interference in the 2016 election.

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a hacking and disinformation campaign aimed at helping Trump's candidacy.

Dave reminds me that we catch the 0900 ferry to New London on Friday for our annual summer trip to Boston for Frederick's camp. For our Bosox friends we are at the Liberty Hotel over by the Charles. Friends are there and its our annual meet up.

BTW, Carl's nephew ran for Mayor in Southampton and lost last week. No Yaz in the hot seat. Show's you how much a Bosox name even local can resonate in Yankee land. But I happen to be a Bosox fan like a lot of us but just not enough.

We were settled by pilgrims from Lynn in 1640. Still has a place here with a lot of people.

By all means, it would be glorious if actual Republican opposition to Trump's many, many acts of bumbling lunacy suddenly started popping up. His budget was preposterous, his first international trip was widely described as a disaster, he's staffed government positions with persons who are either incompetent or publicly opposed to the agencies they are now tasked with heading (or both), his profit-seeking business ties continue—but the majority of Republican lawmaker effort so far appears to have gone into defending each of those things. We've yet to see a House or Senate hearing about Russian intervention or potential Trump obstruction of justice in which the Republican contribution was not primarily outrage that these things have been "leaked" to the public to begin with. Efforts to yank Trump from holding government functions at his own corporate-owned locales, surely a no-brainer for those Republicans who have peacocked off their own campaign-trail commitment to government ethics and boundaries, have zero Republican support.

So why, exactly, are reporters so fixated on this notion that the Republicans who privately grouse to them about the White House's erratic, incompetent, and dangerous behaviors will surely, sometime soon, make their break from the buffoon? How can you spend so much time covering the party's descent into a vehicle that a race-baiting, misogynistic know-nothing could easily commandeer and still be forever waiting for a faction of mythical adults in the party to come patch everything back up?

Ossoff, by contrast, is running a relentlessly positive campaign, betting that he can reach suburban moderates turned off by harsh partisanship. He almost never mentions Trump, though his frequent calls for a more civil, inclusive politics are an implicit rebuke to the president. Speaking at a Juneteenth celebration in Marietta, Georgia on Saturday, he emphasized that the nation’s eyes are on the district:

“This is a chance for us to stand up and make a statement about what we believe in. That we believe in kindness and decency and respect, that we reject fear and division, that we want to pursue greater economic opportunity together, not apart.”

The fact that Ossoff is doing as well as he is in such a Republican district is testament to his considerable political skill as well as to anti-Trump backlash. People often say he reminds them of Barack Obama, and not just because of his lanky frame. He has a similar unflappability and slightly aloof self-possession, and he seems to speak with a three-second delay as he carefully weighs his words. He’s committed to civil rights—his political mentor is Rep. John Lewis, for whom he interned in high school—but sells himself as a post-ideological problem-solver. Nationwide, many progressives have soured on this sort of technocratic liberalism, but it goes over well in a district that is affluent and among the country’s most highly educate

Just caught up on the last thread.

When you research genealogy, history seems much closer. My grandfather lived with his grandfather who had fought in the civil war. Before the war, he was in medical school. After the war, his confederate money was useless so he tried to farm to survive. He had been wounded which affected his walking. That's why my grandfather moved in to help him. He told me many stories that his grandfather told him of their hardships.

I have his Confederate musket and fiddle.

Tim Cook is an arrogant asshole of the first order.

I've used Macs for everything from the start, too. I thought their stuff was so superior to Windows, that I told my stock broker to buy some Apple Stock, even though nobody else seemed to think much of it at the time. When the stock price tumbled even further, I was so embarrassed that I put on my bravest face, called him up and said, I thought it would be a good time to buy some more! It wasn't long after that that Steve Jobs returned to run the show....

NATE SILVER 9:23 PM
If we wind up with Handel winning by like 2 points and Norman winning by about 4 points, that’s by no means the worst outcome for Democrats. In fact, it’s a sort of par-for-the-course one, given expectations going in. But it’s just about the most annoying possible outcome for Democrats, closing the gap in a lot of places, but not winning anywhere yet.
