Yanks are on a roll.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I am bringing this over just because I am glad Trump has made these loafers get off their rears and do some work!

And I am first again.
I will be doing a 12 week substitution for a counselor on pregnancy leave.
I will probably post less but will catch up in the evening.
Looking forward to this experience.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

maryrose,

How long has it been since you were working in schools?

Just asking because I thought I might sign up as a substitute.

Do not forget what the Red Sox did to the Yankees a few years ago, TM. COuld happen again if they are wusses.

Daddy, I'm certain Sessions is happy to let Rosenstein decide on the NDA. No conflict with a desire to hide how badly RR screwed up the first time on Uranium One, so he can honorably bury this set of facts. Sessions can play asset forfeiture follies without interruption.

MM:
I officially retired in 2010 and did a 6 month pregnancy leave in 2016.
Just apply to all public and private school systems.
They especially need people during the winter months or if teachers are out for a surgery of some sort.Emphasize your availability and you become the first call in the morning.

Henry:
We may have to settle for knowledge coming out that RR did in fact screw up the Uranium One deal.If enough of a fuss is made perhaps he will refuse himself and let someone else allow this good American to tell his tale of the Clintons quid pro quo and collusion with the Russians.

maryrose

Refuse should be recuse

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Thanks, maryrose!

I thought I would apply for the elementary schools down in the township I used to volunteer at, where my grandkids went.

The school where I coached Spellbowl would probably use me, and it's not that far, plus it's just off a road which is cleared as priority if there is snow.

maryrose

Why is ABStoddard always on the panel on Bret Baier's show? She needs to get up to speed on what is really happening.

Captain Hate

The ewok is having a lot of fun with the Salon Hot 25.

I don't have anything beyond a lifetime of hatred against the Yankees. It's not their fault the Indians played like a bunch of choking bitches and came up small in the clutch. So I'm kind of ok if they win. But fuck the Cubs.

maryrose

MM:
Go for it!
The kids are great and it is easy to get back in the school routine.

matt, deplore me if you must

I am sort of longing for a Dodgers - Yankees Series, where the Dodgers ruthlessly crush the Yanks in 5. Let those New Yorkers have one win and then crush their hopes like East German border guards.

Catsmeat

MM, nice story about Cassie!

Extraneus

How is it even possible that Sessions is so walled-off from Trump that Trump can't actually act as his manager and influence his decisions?

I know it looks that way but if that's even remotely true, you have to give Trump a lot less credit than we've been giving him.

Why among us here wouldn't be able to figure out how to deal with these scumbags?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Extraneus,

He is not walled off. Sessions was at the cabinet meeting a couple of days ago, and the press gave him props for some stuff on immigration.

I think he is giving the impression that he is out of the loop because it lures the dems into more arrogance.

Never underestimate him. That is what Hillary did, and we see how that worked out for her.

Astro's being outplayed, out coached and out of their comfort zone. Their fielding has been atrocious and the Yanks have the bats tonight. Very nice evening. Here it is cloudless, around 65F and no wind to speak of. Should stay this way through the weekend.

Frederick and I did burger night at Little Reds. Best burgers in Southampton. Nothing like a juicy burger with carmalized onions, bacon and chedder washed down by a Grey Goose martini (extra olives:).

If it turns out to be Dodgers versus Yankees, I'm guessing TM hopes for a non-repeat of 1963.

this from a year ago. and now the Uranium One scandal.

-peter

I am so pissed: Black Lives Matter is demonstrating at Boston College over what is likely faked hate "crimes" A poster was vandalized as someone wrote in the word "don't" between the words Lives and matter. The other racist incident was a ridiculously stupid snap chat that compared slavery to a philly cheese steak. Now my son is being pressured to boycott classes over this total bullshit. Vile.

daddy

I love that Judge Jeanine on Tucker just called for the appointment of some overload to do an investigation of HollyWood and to keep watch on that den of iniquity. I recommend Jerry Falwell, Ralph Reed, and Franklin Graham for starters:)

Buckeye

MM, I would have paid cash money at times to have you teaching either of my kids.

I particularly disliked the teacher who played guitar in her bare feet in my daughter's 3rd grade class.

Hippie nitwit.

You'll be great!

exdemocrat

"...a ridiculously stupid snap chat that compared slavery to a philly cheese steak."

well let's be honest: that particular outrage has been bubbling under the flame for a while now

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Buckeye,

Thanks! My best time as a sub was at my son's high school, where I had the earth science class and explained faults, continental drift, and seafloor spreading.

I made them understand it and they said they wished I were their permanent teacher.

That was back in the 80's though, so I am afraid I need to boost my self-confidence a bit. I have had a hard couple of years.

Somehow I thought you were a smidge older, maryrose, but it is impressive you do all this commenting with a one year old toddler to take care of.

boatbuilder

-Peter--It is truly sad when students at a top-tier educational institution think they are accomplishing something by not taking advantage of the education that they are paying for, or for that matter they think that is what "boycott" means.

Captain Hate

-Peter, tell your son to tell the rabble rousers to fuck off.

He is paying for an education, has a right to get his money's worth.

Even when I was an extremely immature undergrad, when campus anti war riots cancelled classes I said "these assholes are trying to shortchange me from what was paid for and that shit ain't gonna fly."

Not that easy with peer pressure on a teenager unfortunately. Buckeye. They hound kids off campus--did you read what happened at Reed College?

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

Peter,

My 30th law school reunion at BC is the first week of nov. it's not on campus, and the law school is a different campus, but I will be pissed if that stuff is going on.

Tell your son to hang tough.

I far prefer a cheesesteak to slavery. Who could possibly think otherwise?

The ultra lame "joke" that someone snapchatted was "I like my cheesesteak like I love my slavery--unseasoned." That's the triggering racism. It doesn't even make sense. The other horrible crime-- writing in the word, "don't" on a black lives matter poster, which I would bet was a fake hate crime.

henry

Peter, I agree. That makes no sense at all.

daddy

Roger Kimball is the guest on Dennis Prager's Radio Show and he just made the brilliant point that the hatred from the anti-trumpets and #NeverTrumper’s towards Trump is because "Trump committed the unforgivable sin of getting elected President without their permission."

Dennis loved it!

daddy

Meanwhile, over at Tucker's house, Mark Steyn says we are all fully entitled now to engage in Conspiracy Theories because for whatever reason the mysterious missing MGM Security Guard, Jesus Campos, scoured all of the Media outlets on the planet that he could give his important eye witness account to, and of all of them he decided the most high profile and important venue he should give his one and only interview to was Ellen Degeneres.

daddy

Has Ron Rosenstein started writing the paper exonerating Ron Rosenstein in the Uranium 1 Case prior to interviewing Ron Rosenstein?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

daddy,

I heard that. He was exactly right about how people cannot help but feel there is something weird going on, as they kept changing the timeline and then Campos disappeared for 3 days and then turned up on Ellen's show, which is run by MGM, owner of the Mandalay casino.

He also brought up the attempt to delay releasing the papers on the JFK association, delaying the release for another 25 years.

Human beings are wired to see patterns. When people aren't given adequate explanations and see patterns, the mind goes to some sinister plot. I said this to my sisters one day when we were driving through Illinois and saw huge parts of machines on trucks in a convoy. I told them that as a public service, the company should label the parts as to what they were, so that people didn't think they were UFO parts or something.

Victoria Toensing to join Hannity in a few minutes on his TV Show about her silent FBI Informant client who needs the NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) lifted.

Captain Hate

Anybody read Orwell's Homage to Catalonia? I joined the Horde reading group last weekend (I wish I'd done it earlier when they tackled Meditations by Marcus Aurelius but that didn't happen) and the group read is something by Orwell with the main concentration on 1984 or Animal Farm. Although I'm a big proponent of rereading books, I've wanted to read HtC for a long time so that's what I'm doing.

daddy

Hannity is going after Sessions for being such a mealy mouthed cowardly weasel in reply to Grassley's questioning today. OL, add an extra chair on the Ledge for Sean.

daddy

Anybody read Orwell's Homage to Catalonia?

Captain,

A Spanish co-worker from Catalonia gave it to me about 10 years back and I read a short bit but it never captured my interest so I put it down. If multiple JOMer's rise up and say it's worth reading I'll give it another try.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Victoria Toensing says she just got a letter from Grassley asking her client to testify.

daddy

My co-worker's pop was an Iberian Airlines Captain. His son, my friend and co-worker, was very very smart and very well educated. All his other steers to me were excellent, like Orialano coming down the Amazon in @ 1540, and books on the first Geo-Mappings of Equador, etc.

daddy

Thanks for that Miss M. Let me see if there's anything else from her in that segment worth transcribing. Off the top it looks like Grassley has balls. Sessions, not so much.

Captain Hate

Thanks, daddy; I sent out a heads up at the group site that I was reading it. Even if it doesn't grab me, although the first few pages look promising, there's a certain inertia in group reads that can overcome early misgivings.

I am reading Homage to Catalonia again since I mentioned it the other day talking about books about Catalonia. Typical Orwell. Lots of psychology of beliefs and interesting insights of the “struggle” from a committed socialist. But very enjoyable and provocative read.

THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM!!

Trump should have said that. Heh heh.

LOCK HER UP.

My transcript:

Hannity: I'll start with you Victoria. This is your client. He wanted to tell Congress about all the Bribery, all the scheming, all the kickbacks, all of the corruption. He had the information, he wanted to tell the story. What happened?

Toensing: Well when he started working for the FBI IN 2009 they had him sign what's called an NDA, a Non-Disclosure Agreement. They never gave him a copy of it and when he went public in 2016, way after all this case stuff was done, the Justice Department under Loretta Lynch, called him and threatened him with his freedom if he violated the NDA. Now I've never heard of an NDA that had a criminal penalty for violation but they won't show him a copy of it, so we decided to go to the members of Congress in the Senate, and I have breaking news for you. While I was in make-up, I got a message from Chairman Grassley asking my client to give them information. Now what this does is set up a Constitutional Issue because the Executive Branch can not say to someone "Don't you give information to the legislature." So It will be a very interesting thing to see how the Justice Department responds.

Hannity: So they have the power to lift that NDA--That would be amazing.

I reread that and realized what poor sentence structure it was.

Given what Pilgrim's Progress has to say, the Ledge should certainly charge admission, while the optimists (me, RG, maryrose, MM, others) are on the pleasant daisy-strewn path, which by definition has no admission (this should of course lead right to satanic domains, given that hard is better, almost always). But we might actually be right in this case, so we'll see.

daddy

He's adding a lower deck to the ledge, silly:)

daddy

Lets discuss the Constitutional Issue posited by Victoria Toensing:

So the Executive (DOJ/FBI) has a guy sign an NDA promising not to tell.

Now he wants to talk to the Legislative Branch at their official Request.

Who Trumps who, or do we have to go into special Sessions?

Captain Hate

So regarding this Samantha Power "somebody planted that bag of blow in my pocket", to unmask someone, which you only do for really really important reasons because doing it for political gain would look real bad, there has to be a sequence of well defined steps to be done to make sure that everything is on the up and up, amirite?

So why is anybody buying this halfassed excuse?

You have to admit it shows a little more enterprise than the Clintonian "duh, I don't recall", CH.
And given the last regime's corruption, I'm not sure it isn't a little more plausible.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Catsmeat,

I don't talk about this much, but I honestly believe that the election of President Trump was a miracle.

I therefore have paid attention to things that have been happening: the unmasking of so many in elected office; the mysterious sudden reveal of the horrible stuff in Hollywood (yes, it has always been bad, but the general public never knew); the sudden defeat of ISIS; the collapse of the NFL; on and on.

I also paid attention to the support of the evangelicals, particularly Jerry Falwell Jr., Franklin Graham, and Robert Jeffress. Who would have thought that a billionaire with a playboy reputation would become their champion, or that Mike Pence, a committed Christian, would accept being his running mate?

President Trump is of the generation who doesn't speak about faith much. I couldn't help noticing in his Inaugural speech that he said "We will be protected by God." That was spoken with confidence and struck me as perhaps someone who has had an encounter with Christ.

So, I remain confident and hopeful. Others can go to the Ledge. I just can't do so, myself. I am not criticizing anyone. Maybe I am wrong, but I don't think so. The country is changing in good ways, although getting rid of the bad stuff isn't pretty.

"The light shineth, and the dark has not overcome it."

daddy

So regarding this Samantha Power "somebody planted that bag of blow in my pocket", to unmask someone, which you only do for really really important reasons

I recall Krauthammer on the panel pontificating to us that there were so many safeguards in the FISA apparatus that there was no way anyone could ever do any unmasking that wasn't totally above board and 100% honest, and if anyone thought otherwise you were a looney tunes Conspiracy Theorist. Too lazy to dig up the clip, but I recall mocking it at the time. Hope he recovers from his current ailments, BTW.

Well if it's a Constitutional Issue I'm thinking 6, maybe 8 months of Court challenges,, and the entire thing done in super super secret Closed Testimony so that once again the Public is told nothing and the Dem's will provide all the necessary adjectives to the MSM.

Local Channel 2 NBC Alaska News on TV is covering the Sessions Hearings, but only in regards to 2 items; his many denials of being complicit in colluding with the Russians during the 2016 Election, and then for comments about DOJ's latest Policy on Dreamers. Nothing else of note happened in the DC Hearings today. Then a short clip of Lamar Alexander and "The Mom In Tennis Shoe's" Legislative deal to make it legal for funds to go to bail out the ObamaCare Insurance companies. Patty Murray's comments damning Trump were included.

I suspect that is the very same verbiage you heard from your local NBC Nightly News guys.
