OL, on the last post, you were asking about a good Scotch for the Ledge. Try Dalwhinnie if you are looking for a smooth Scotch without a ton of peat.

Catching up from the last thread:

DrJ, sorry for your loss.

There was some discussion of Saudi Arabia. Saw this on Twitter:
-----
Ron M. @Jewtastic 1hr

The new Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia is pledging massive Islamic reform, talks to Israel, and has allowed women to drive.

It's a big deal.
-----

The Trump effect.

jimmyk on iPhone

Discovered something else on Twitter: Bill James (of baseball sabremetrics fame) apparently follows Iowahawk.

For some reason I found that interesting.

Neo

Interesting that it is never mentioned that Laurene Powell Jobs is the widow of Steve Jobs, but I guess we were supposed to know that.

Is anyone shocked by this?

I'm a little conned for the prince, we know what happened with sadat, who only had the chicken pox in Egypt,

Yes clarice the history of covert action specially in eastern Europe was not promising, valuable (the failed Albanian operation) the Ukraine which involved some downright disreputable characters, S you well know the win. Campaign in Poland, which seemed to be a copy of the trust.

The name did seem familiar, so Leon 'went on the lam, then they cheesed him'

Tied up in the 9th!

Uh-oh.

Walked Forsythe with 2 outs ..

Wow. 5 women accuse Mark Halperin of sexual harassment.

Tying run two second on a wild pitch!

Sheesh. Wild pitch.

Holy guacamole. 2 run homer.

Bums' pen not getting it done either. 7-5.

Aother 2-run Homer by the Astros. I'm going to bed.

The bad throw hitting the ump might've saved the game.

Here's the Halperin piece.

////

Every time I peek at the game the Dodgers do something... Go Stros! from afar...

jimmyk on iPhone

Finally!

mad jack

stros need to thank the ump for getting in the way of that pick-off attempt...not that he had any options as the pitcher threw it right at him.

jimmyk on iPhone

Probably not decisive--weren't there two outs at the time? Next batter flied out.

I guess I finally understand why progs got so outraged that Trump noted there are a lot of broads who will voluntarily let rich guys grab their pussies.

They're ticked the dumb ass thought you had to wait until a willing participant came along.

I guess Halperin isn't rich enough.

MM, (from prior thread)

"A lot of this stuff seems to be breaking this week. I don't believe in coincidences."

Yeah, I was thinking a similar thought, like some kind of change in momentum. Flake and whathisname go ballistic and the only ones who care are Libs and GOPe.

Bannon is a real force and people are following his lead against the GOPe.

EPA says it will no longer engage in "sue and settle" nor pay generous plaintiff's lawyers fees.

DOJ states it will no longer allow "slush fund" payments to liberal groups. Will they audit them? Prosecute former DOJ people for the way they handed out the graft?

DOJ un-gags the Uranium whistle-blower.

Eight years of Obama's administration behavior up for investigation.

DWS and Awan, and so many other things coming to a head like Comey and Mueller and their past actions.

I read it as peak Trump, in the sense of what more can they accuse him of, before his adversary's look bat-shit crazy like the Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, complaining about the re-electrification of Puerto Rico contract.

I think it's Karma catching up with the DEMs all at once.

Let's adopt the DEM/Alinsky theory and indict as many Dem wrong-doers as we can and bankrupt them like they did to Scooter Libby.

As Obi-wan-Kenobi said to Luke "Luke, use your white privilege."

I'd also like to see a Republican appeal to blacks (Oh all right, African-Americans) about the effect of illegal immigration on their opportunities.

When I was younger, blacks did back-breaking work on landscaping crews. Dawn to dusk in the summer. If the company was legit, the employees got unemployment in the winter and could supplement their income with off the books work.

Or they could work at a car wash, not optimal, but with tips maybe not so bad.

Or as janitorial crew, but now, they, like whites, are sabotaged by Hispanics, who want to bring their cousins on the job.

I'm not advocating that Blacks are fit only for only entry-level employment, but that, as an economist, America can only be great if all native-born Americans, regardless of color, are able to reach their full potential. Even if we are only talking about stepping-stone opportunities on a path of self-improvements. Immigration is screwing our black community. And they are my friends, and they should be reminded that if they continue to support the Democratic Party that they are voting against their own interests.

Illegal immigrants are stealing what used to be entry level jobs for blacks.

If you're still wondering about my outlook here, read about George Washington Carver, the peanut genius, and tell me that he is not the quintessential American hero.

This mornings fake news meme on CNN:

Donald Trump is a braggart.

Donald Trump is a bully.

Donald Trump is tearing the Republican Party apart.

Donald Trump thru Cambridge Analytica and Wikileaks/Russia worked in tandem to bring down Hillary and that is The Scandal.

Not seeing much about DoJ slush funds, dossiers, uranium and such.

Good morning!

Brian Kilmeade on Fox just now: "You know they're making progress when we see less of Adam Schiff."

HA!

I love Kilmeade. He just blurts stuff out. I've loved him since right after 9/11 when Bill Clinton was walking around in New York City biting his lip and hugging people, and Brian walked up to Bubba and said, "Mr. President, do you feel any responsibility for this?"

I don't think it's working, though. When the Clintons were last in power and dealing with scandals, they had access to the full power of the executive and were only confronting some investigative reporters from rhe American Spectator, Fox News, and a few MSM outlets.

This time, there are hundreds of thousands of people on the internet, assembling time lines and connecting dots.

One thing those Wikileaks files from the Clinton campaign last year showed me is that the Clintons surround themselves with mediocre people who are not able to think quickly about much of anything. They are going to be unable to spin this story the way they used to.

Lord & Taylor sold most of their flagship store building in NYC this week to a company that rents out short-term office space.

We no longer really have a department store in Indianapolis other than Macy's, which has a couple of floors in the downtown mall. We also have a Nordstrom's branch downtown but it's mostly women's clothing.

As late as the early 70's, we had 3 local department stores downtown: L.S. Ayres, Wm H. Block CO., and Wasson's. Ayres' building was 9 stories, included furniture and appliances, a book store on the mezzanine, a tea room and a basement cafeteria, a pharmacy, and a fantastic toy department. Their china and crystal department had run the premier bridal registry in Indianapolis for generations.

I sure miss that store. Ordering on line from Williams Somona and Pottery Barn just isn't the same.

MM--i was in NM with red about a year ago looking at shoes and discussing how faddish all the expensive shoes were. Salesperson started chatting with us and said that the physical shoe department had mostly become a place that handled the returns of shoes people bought online without trying them on.

That's not a sustainable business model, even on the high end. Plus with all the splost's the sales tax is more in my atl county than it is in NYC. It hits everyone shopping where these high-end stores are located in atlanta. OK for tourists who use send if they are smart.

Last thing I bought was a sales lady who has known me since law school who told me there was a one day 20% off sweaters sale. I think she just reduced the price on the spot to encourage me to buy.

anonamom

So, just like NPR yesterday, the adulterers on Morning Joe are playing the "I went to an Ivy League college" as the 7 am lede.

I wonder when they are going to get to him asking the press why they haven't reported on his calls to the other three families of Niger victims?
Because they've all been contacted, he noted.

I'll let you know if they report on favorite and long-time regular Mark Halperin's sexual assaults.

I really loved department stores growing up, and am sad to see them in decline, but I just don't shop at them very often.

That said, we went to Sears the other day and found everything we were looking for, reasonably priced. It wasn't stuffed to the gills like other department stores, either. Very pleasant experience.

The Trump Tithe

It’s estimated that Donald Trump has lost $2B, or 14%, of his $14B estate, since becoming president. He knew this would happen. Compare this with average congresspersons who come to Washington with small assets and retire a few years later as millionaires, almost all of it off the books. Finally, an American who has given back to his country a true tithe rather than plucking it like a goose. Cheerfully.

This is an old article from September of 2016, but it demonstrates the importance of the Reddit site and crowdsourcing, which is why the old Clinton playbook won't work anymore, as I mentioned above:

Porchlight,

Hello.

I posted a message to you about Sessions at the end of the last thread.

Robin, upstate

JimNJ at 5:01am:

Your observations are exactly what I have witnessed, both in the south and in my rural upstate NY area with dairy farms.

I recently used the economic argument against illegal immigration and the effect on black Americans in a discussion with an extreme lefty (highly sympathetic to Hispanics) friend. Her response? "I never thought of it that way."

I don't think for a minute that POTUS hasn't thought long and hard about how and when to put that argument to the public. I suspect he is waiting for congress to do nothing and weaponize for 2018 midterms.

Regarding blacks losing jobs to hispanics:

It's more than just that. My union democrat brother mentioned several years ago that the closing of the Chrysler Foundry here was really hard on the black community. It was a relatively high wage (UAW union) employer who had a high number of black guys working there. Those jobs disappeared and it devastated the families who were dependent n those incomes.

Buckeye

From a WSJ technology alert in my email this morning, bolding mine:

The social-media company said it realized during the third quarter that it had been including users of a service for third-party apps as monthly users that should not have been counted. Twitter restated its users for the past three quarters--revising them down by 1 million to 2 million--but said it didn't have user data going back further than that.

Twitter's error in counting users tarnishes the company's credibility during a critical period as the growth of rival Snapchat has increased competition for advertising dollars.

No big deal, only overstated by 50%. Glad I don't sell ad space for these guys, going to be tough sledding for awhile.

Janet 🚬

MM's 7:44 is a wonderful link.

I tell you what, it is sickening what the Clintons & the Obama administration have gotten away with.
I look through my "On This Day" feature on FB & all the past corruption is overwhelming.
IRS, Benghazi, Planned Parenthood, Pigford, violence & slander against conservatives, citizens of other countries pouring into America, ....

& no consequences. That is the frustrating thing.

Last night I broke protocol and allowed Bret Bair to intrude on my cocktail hour, wondering how he would handle the dawning reality that he backed the weak horse.

I assumed they would just do a straight up reporting of the cascade of s**t coming to light and pretend they have always just been straight up news guys.

Boy was I wrong. Their reporting was basically just more of the old NT meme they have been on since Bret & MeAgain revealed their stripes in that debate.

After about 20 minutes of waiting for some "balance", Bret says "more on this in the Roundtable" but by then I was already clicking on my car shows.

Since TM's post is on another vile serial sexual harasser, I thought i would mention the latest just posted on Lefty Journalist Mark Halperin:

"During this period, I did pursue relationships with women that I worked with, including some junior to me...I now understand from these accounts that my behavior was inappropriate and caused others pain. For that, I am deeply sorry and I apologize.

Who of the sordid slew of the recently outed sexual harassers and their enablers has driveled out the most pathetic apology to date?

Previously I'd have gone with Ben Afleck's cowardly statements, about how he knew about all this stuff but how he didn't really know because whatever and blah, blah blah, blah blah...but Mark Halperin's statement, that he has suddenly discovered that his actions, may have been construed by his multiple victims as inappropriate, to me tops the list of dishonest, disingenuous butt-coverers.

JimNorCal
