Easier to launder Russian funding that way.

I agree with henry.

Once again I would like to say that 501c3 groups should be required to list all donors, just like political parties do.

MM,

Double edged sword. SPLC donors will be protected by the MFM, not the Conservative 501 (C's) - they will get the USA Today treatment of Trump golf club members.

Clinton Angering Democrats With Fixation on 2016 Election: ‘I Wish She’d Just Shut the F*** Up and Go Away’

Since her defeat, Clinton has insisted she takes responsibility for losing but has also laid blame on a variety of other factors, such as former FBI Director James Comey, Russian meddling in the election, coverage of her private email scandal, fake news, poor Democratic National Committee data operations, and sexism.

In interviews with The Hill, former Clinton allies lashed out at her for score-settling when the Democratic Party is trying to move forward.

"The best thing she could do is disappear," said one former Clinton fundraiser and surrogate described as having an active role at the party's convention. "She’s doing harm to all of us because of her own selfishness. Honestly, I wish she’d just shut the fuck up and go away."

Momto2,

This 3-month time period should be very interesting to see what gets accomplished.

It was fascinating to read Twitter and The Conservative Treehouse yesterday and see how many people understood what Trump was doing, while others started the usual "Betrayed! He's working with democrats!" line.

"when the Democratic Party is trying to move forward." One can use Democrats and move forward in the same sentence, Who knew?

From MM's Chitown link:

At that point, Whoopi Goldberg interjected with the suggestion of getting “somebody in the office who recognizes what the truth is,” referring to the ‘birther’ issue.

It still stings them. As I explained in 2012 to the afterbirthers, embracing the birthers is a good thing for a Presidential aspirant to do.

A little early morning ecumenical humor:

At the regular Saturday morning service, the rabbi announced that he was planning to leave for a larger congregation that would pay him more. There is a hush within the congregation. No one wants him to leave because he is so popular.

Fred Shapiro, who owns several car dealerships in Newton and Brookline, stands up and proclaims "If the rabbi stays, I will provide him with a new Cadillac every year, and his wife with a Honda mini-van, to transport their children!"

The congregation sighs in appreciation and applauds.
Saul Cohen, a successful businessman and lawyer, stands up and says, "If the rabbi will stay on here, I’ll personally double his salary, and establish a foundation to guarantee a free college education for his children!”
More sighs and loud applause.

Estelle Rubin, age 88, stands and announces with a smile, "If the rabbi stays, I will give him sex!" There is total silence.

The rabbi, blushing, asks her: "Mrs. Rubin, you're a wonderful and holy lady. Whatever possessed you to say that?"

Estelle's 90-year old husband, Abe, is now trying to hide, holding his forehead with the palm of his hand, and shaking his head from side to side, while his wife replies:

Well, I just asked my husband how we could help, and Abe said: "Fuck him."

Fun, the budget also requires an audit of Planned Parenthood. hehehehe

TK

Part of the answer to the introductory question (So why does the SPLC have so much of its endowment in offshore accounts, unlike other major charities?) lies in the tax code. Offshore investments shelter tax-exempt entities ("TEEs") from unrelated business taxable income, or UBTI. UBTI is any income that a TEE earns through business that is unrelated to its tax-exempt purpose. It can subject TEEs to taxation on that income or even threaten their tax-exempt status entirely if there is too much UBTI. Investing offshore is standard industry practice common for TEEs.

Please note this is only an explanation of SPLC's investment implementation and not a defense of its otherwise odious behavior.

The Clintons should not be allowed anywhere around money, and that includes book tours and charity.

I had a friend text me that the Mayor of Houston announced that they would be working with the Clinton Foundation on hurricane relief. Trouble brewing, if you ask me.

And how much of an advance did she get for that book and who paid it? And why is she charging huge amounts for her book-signing tours? I never heard of an author doing that before.

From David Horowitz, using "hate" to choke off law abiding conservatives.

"The Left is trying to put the Freedom Center on a blacklist of "hate groups" and run it out of business.

The leftists masterminding the blacklist get results by convincing sites like PayPal to stop taking donations for mainstream conservative organizations like the Freedom Center as a way of "stopping hate."

It convinced Guidestar, the premier rating site for non-profits, to designate us a "hate group" to scare off donors.

And last week, a leftist site called bloodmoney.org announced a campaign to force Visa and MasterCard to stop processing funds for 100 conservative groups – including the Freedom Center."

10 years virtually no hurricanes while prog "scientists" say "hottest years ever! and hot makes hurricanes!" = models not invalidated.

One and a half hurricanes = models proven, science settled.

Matthew hung pretty much to the coast which wiped out our dunes and A1A in Flagler Beach. Looks like current NHC/NOAA model is showing Irma going offshore on its way to GA/SC.

This Comment by TM from the last thread:

this isn't clearing the decks - this is increasing the complexity, hopefully to create more bargaining chips.

That works as well. One thing is certain, for the short term Congress will not be bogged down with the endless debate over the debt ceiling. Think back over the last two decades. Every time that this issue comes up the same arguments are raised, the threat of a government shutdown occurs, sometimes the government actually does shut down, the Republicans get a black eye and the debt ceiling eventually gets raised. Meanwhile the Congress gets nothing done.

Why go through all of that when you have a squishy Republican majority? They will have to face the issue eventually, but there are more important things to do right now.

When DACA comes around, I expect that President Trump will do some more horse trading. The bridge has already been approached, if not built, and the President has established a foothold by working in a bipartisan manner.

President Reagan used to say that if you can't get 100% of what you want, take the 80% and come back for the rest later. I believe that is a sound strategy. Get things moving along toward your goals rather than staying mired in a losing proposition.

I really like Marlene's description of the group picture in the Oval as a hostage photo! That's exactly what it was.

Old Lurker

Regarding insurance mentioned above. As RSE, Narc, Jack and I are all to aware there are several real obstacles in getting the coverage regualr people hope to have.

First is the battle of whether the damage was a flood, or was it wind, or was it wind blown water...The basic policy will cover wind but not floods because you are expected to have bought that coverage from the Feds. Two problems right there: flood policies have pretty low caps on the amount you can recover, and limits within about which floor got what damage. Second problem is that the Flood guy will say it was wind damage, and the Wind guy will say it was flood damage so you get sucked into that storm.

Next area of issue is that at certain levels, homeowner policies will say "we will cover regular losses s/t a deductible of $X (whatever you decided to buy) EXCEPT in the case of damage from a "Named Storm" in which we require the homeowner to pay the first X% (usually 10%, sometimes 20%) of all damage before the insurance pays anything.

When Matthew hit Hilton Head, hundreds of houses had damage of $100-150,000 and everyone I know had to pay all of that out of pocket. (I have always thought this is why all of a sudden every little depression gets a name assigned to it.)

I know, I know. "1% Problems".

Old Lurker

I said this badly "homeowner to pay the first X% (usually 10%, sometimes 20%) of all damage before the insurance pays anything."

I meant that the homeowner has to pay all damages up to x% of the total value of the policy before insurance pays a dime. So if a named storm does $101,000 of damage on a $1M house, the homeowner pays $100,000 and insurance pays $1,000.

Thank God the US can continue its path of all forms of energy with new technologies used to reduce pollution and protect the environment. The sham Paris accords would have done nothing to improve our path but it would have tranferred hundreds of billions is U S tacpayer dollars to corrupt foreign goverments who would have lined their politicians anf frindes pockets. Those are funds we now have to protect and rebuild places like Houston and Florida. The economic benefit will be a by product.

Another thing I don't understand about people preparing for 'Canes: Water. Watching TWC about "liquid gold" aka water and how the Publix markets are being overrun by people looking for water.

Do what we do. 1) fill up every container you have including lined garbage cans if necessay with the water you have now at home (it is potable and has to be), 2) Fill up bathtubs if you think water distribution will interrupted. Plenty of time before Irma hits.

If you're not evacuating and are staying put understand that if you don't have running water you won't have sanitary working either and that is the real water problem.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Home early! Nice brunch with my sisters and brothers.

My youngest sister just sold her 30's Cape Cod (full price cash) and luckily found a 60's ranch with beautiful trees and fenced back yard (dogs). She has knees as bad as mine and wanted to avoid steps. House has been completely redone so is in move-in condition and empty.

She will be moving at the beginning of October. She will sell most of her current furniture and has decided to go Mid Century in her new home, which fits more with the architectural style. She has a resale shop coming to look at her stuff next week.

My brother is looking at property over in Cincinnati where both of his daughters and their families live. He wants to build something for retirement and have it to his specifications. So it looks like he will be moving as well, probably next summer.

That means we are going to have to figure out what to do about Thanksgiving, because he was the one with the biggest house. For sure this one won't accomodate 20 people, and everyone else has a small house, too. Maybe we will start going to Thanksgiving buffets or something.

It's very fall-like here. I got to wondering with the hurricanes if there was a correlation between the number of severe hurricanes and colder winters. (My theory being that the heat converts to energy which is dissipated by the storms, hence little heat left for winter.)

Of course, there is no easy way to search for that because global warming, so we will see if I am right. I am drawing on childhood memories of hurricanes and cold winters, so I might be all wet.

As to Trump's strategy: I dispute York's "clear the decks" strategy. Instead of "decks" I would use a hostage metaphor - now EVERYTHING can get pushed into reconciliation or debt ceiling, or at tied to it. Maybe Trump trades wall funding for a different tax rate.

That strategy can work - some brilliant negotiator (I am getting a dim glow saying it was James Baker) used to say that if a problem is intractable, make it bigger. More moving parts means more chances to find a winning combination. So maybe tax reform by itself is undoable but coupled with DACA or the wall, something can give.

But no, this isn't clearing the decks - this is increasing the complexity, hopefully to create more bargaining chips.
Posted by: Tom Maguire | September 07, 2017 at 09:26 AM

TM, Byron York says clearing the decks. You say taking the process hostage by increasing the complexity. If you’ve worked within a legislative process, you’re familiar with legislative trains. To me, both of you are saying the same thing. Which is: the possibility for action has been increased by the effort undertaken by our President.

It was a masterful stroke and Trump was the very clear winner.

The train is getting ready to roll, fellas. To hell with the bullshit, it's now time for making deals.

On that note, I think Ben Domenech is one of the people sounding another correct note:

http://thefederalist.com/2017/09/07/trumps-potential-triangulation/

What this amounts to is a triangulation from a position of strength over your own party (technically). It comes from a recognition that the country largely hates the GOP. A combative, populist non-ideological president not hung up on small government budget principles who infuriates the left and says anti-politically correct things and delivers on judges is, as it turns out, what “his own party” wants. The assumption that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell represent some large constituency of Republican voters turns out not to be true.

The fact is that the Republican Party has been the party of Trump for a lot longer than Washington thinks.

It's very fall-like here. I got to wondering with the hurricanes if there was a correlation between the number of severe hurricanes and colder winters. (My theory being that the heat converts to energy which is dissipated by the storms, hence little heat left for winter.)

It's unusually cool here for this time of year, as it generally has been since mid June give or take a few isolated bursts of heat. Apparently it's been cool everywhere except the far west. Regarding the hurricanes I don't think it works like that; hurricanes get over 99% of their energy from the Atlantic Ocean (that was a local coffee quiz question this morning) and even if they drained the ocean of energy, fronts move west to east.

Trying to explain weather eludes almost everybody, particularly the insane clown warmist cultists.

How's that One World Government looking now, Chumps?

"The top EU court, European Court of Justice (ECJ), has dismiss the lawsuit filed by Hungary and Slovakia challenging Brussels’ forced migrant redistribution plan. According to the court’s ruling, individual member states had ‘no grounds to refuse to take in migrants,’ media reports suggest. The judgment opens the way for the EU to start relocating 160,000 migrants currently in Greece and Italy. The governments of Hungary and Slovakia, backed by Poland and the Czech Republic, had filed a case against the EU’s centralized ‘refugee’ distribution plan."

Captain Hate,

I see what you mean. I was just thinking out loud because I dimply remember a year when I was in junior high where we got the leftovers of a hurricane and then a blizzard the following winter.

I am not locked into my theory, of course, unlike the cultists.

I did notice Antarctic ice was way up this year, so that may be a precursor to our hemisphere also being cooler this winter.

Or not. I will wait for the Farmers' Almanac in order to get serious weather science. HA!

As for the Southern Poverty Law Center, I go back to something I said yesterday and expand on it: the SPLC is something of a perfect sadistic marriage of black guilt and white guilt utilized to co-opt an ostensibly civil rights movement organization into something it was not originally concerned with at all. This has also been done to the NAACP, the Urban League, the political approaches of our alumni fraternity and sorority chapters, etc.

Black people used to be incredibly pissed off by this sort of thing; forever doing something in “our” name that doesn’t have a damn thing to do with us or what we’re truly concerned with. In this sense, the SPLC is the perfect representation of how the ProgressiveRegressives have completely bastardized things. They need to be exposed.

Another tip someone posted about water was to fill up zip-lock bags and freeze them. It serves two purposes. They can be melted down later for water. If the power goes out, having them may prolong your frozen and/or refrigerated food.

They live in South Carolina now and have two children. They have already evacuated to her mother's home in Ohio.
