Extraneus,

The answer to your boot question is Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Cal, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

By the way, a new Q-anon series of clues hints that the big tech companies were going to take over space, put in monitoring satellites, and control the Norks so that they could threaten everyone with nukes and control all of us.

I personally think that is a bridge too far on conspiracy theories.

If Nutjob Comey is defending someone publicly you can safely assume they ought to be in the same cell block together.
It's especially rich and telling to see him whining expansively about good, decent public servants being hounded because of partisan politics.
Of course they are Lord Projector Jim: they and you are being properly hounded for polluting your non partisan jobs and agencies with your own destructive and illegal partisan and personal animus and favoritism.

It's not too early:

What's going on at Politico? Two blockbusters in last several days - that BOzo Inc. blocked a years long investigation of Hezbollah to get the Iran deal, and yesterday that Comey FBI pal James Baker was the likely source of Buzzfeed's dirty dossier scoop.

Thomas Wictor is convinced Ben Rhodes is a psychopath due to his flat-face effect. And to further bolster his claims, he reminds us Rhodes couldn't get a security clearance. Here is an article from last January, whcih I didin't remember because the news was full of stuff to do with the transition:

Ben Rhodes is not very smart this is why he was on Lee Hamilton's staff who always had the wrong answer to a question that's why they put him on the 9/11 commission.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Think about the intellectual corruption of the left for a moment.
Nutjob Comey, a federal employee, creates, on government computers and government time, some phony memos regarding his job and then leaks them to the press for the corrupt and express purpose of instigating an SC over an issue he already knew to be a lie. Progs argue that is not a criminal leak because those memos are his personal private notes.

Trump's transition, a 501(c)4 private non profit, is told by the official public archivist of the Federal government that their communications are their own private property, backed up by the statute creating the apparatus for transitions and by precedent and the progs argue that the GSA can give away even attorney-client communications of a private entity to a prosecutor.

One of the marks of psychopathy is a pathological dishonesty that can seamlessly and effortlessly tell diametrically opposite stories in the space of a single paragraph.

JimNorCal

MissM, that 10:33 was warm story to read. Being with daughter and step daughters this holiday is making me all emotional and teary :) :)

We assume those memos exist, Michael Schmidt wouldn't lie, the rosneft deal is the big thing that Steele promised Harding it turns out it was a mcvuffin.

Welp, before heading out to dinner last night I was shaving and managed to cut myself. On my right...ear. The distaff side of JOM may or may not understand how this might happen. 😬 Bled all over the damn place as I held a tissue on it while attempting to open a bandaid simultaneously. Went to dinner with the stupid thing on. Fortunately I didn't have to explain to anyone just how this came to be...

Carry on.

can't keep up. Slept in, to catch up on much needed sleep. And today I have to work out, gift wrap, fix my son's license plate bracket with epoxy (in the pouring rain that won't work I'm sure,) and go to the barber. If anything really important got posted in the last eighteen hours, let me know. thanks.

My last HS shop project was building a 1215 MHz transceiver based on an IFF transponder out of a Korean War vintage F-86. That was such a new amateur band, I think there were about two guys playing on it. Awesome xmit tubes.

-peter, sounds like my weekend.

In addition the the clogged drain yesterday, Mrs. Buckeye clipped the frame of the garage door.

Tore a tab off the front bumper cover. Attempt with an epoxy repair was a total bust.

Luckily I have a good friend who owns a string of body shops in Cincy who has an ace painter. He can make a new cover match perfect.

$800 later should be just like new.

As I finish wrapping I am thinking how much I enjoy wrapping books! They are just such a nice, hard surface and perfectly shaped so that the paper makes crisp edges and the ribbon is easily pulled tight before tying.

I'm giving my son this (which was hard to find)
"As Little Design As Possible" for his design library https://www.amazon.com/Dieter-Rams-Little-Design-Possible/dp/0714849189/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1514047772&sr=1-1&keywords=as+little+design+as+possible

I gave our history teacher this (was on his want list)
"The Storm Before The Storm"

I hope there are some book-shaped packages under the tree for me this year!

Thanks to Trump’s new Executive Order dealing with human trafficking and corruption, could it be used to seize the financial assets of anyone in the Obama administration and federal government who conspired to spy on Trump and his team?

It wasn't lack of coordination, Buckeye. I was actually shaving my ear since the older I get, the more hair seems to sprout on them. But the advice on the styptic is very good. I would have killed for it last night.

From the doggie destruction stories...

In a joint effort - one of the cats knocked 2 of my carolers off of the piano and Darby proceeded to destroy one and severely damage another one. My husband used to give me one of these every year so I'll have to research if they are even still available. :(

Gunman targeted police officers in shooting spree: authorities

Authorities in Harrisburg, Pa., were wondering Friday what drove a 51-year-old man to go on an afternoon shooting spree in which he apparently targeted police officers.

Police eventually shot and killed the gunman, whom authorities later identified as Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty.

What could possibly drive a guy named Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty to go on a shooting rampage?

Marsico said the FBI was assisting in the investigation to determine if it was a planned act of terrorism, the station reported.

“We can’t comment on that at this time,” Marsico told the station. “But the investigation will continue and it will be thorough.”

momto 2-yes byers carolers are still available and are one of those items like baccarat crystal that contractually are never supposed to be sold at a discount. I have a large collection as does my mom who got me started.

The best selection I saw this year was in the ace hardware on n'side parkway and west paces by the apostles church.

The diva always gets the carolers out thanksgiving night so the friday afterwards the house is suddenly decorated while she sleeps in. Of course no one but me puts anything away in january.

just got a beef tenderloin in the oven. Just under 6 pounds so I can give leftovers to fil and my parents. Red said it looked bigger than the average baby.

Tomorrow night is cioppino as we are revising some of our traditions so there is less of a comparison with christmas eve from previous years. My youngest refused to look at the open casket so there will be finality tomorrow.

Had a wonderful dinner with my side of the family last night. Ten of us in total, including the two fiancées, and everyone was in a good mood. It was the first year my Mom didn't cook her prime rib feast for the crew, so she took us all to a wonderful German restaurant in town. Delightful in every way.

The coolest thing was my brother's gift to my Mom: 23andMe. She did the swab a few months ago and he gave her the results last night. It's one of the great family mysteries, as her side of the family has stories of being all sorts of Indian and black Dutch.

She wouldn't open it in front of everyone, but I'll get to see it when I take her to lunch Christmas Day. My brother - who already peeked - said it's 'very interesting'. 😜

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Granddaughter got her laundry done and left.

We braved the traffic. Aldi's had a broken cart in the mix so we couldn't get a cart out because it had jammed the entire row. (The carts have locks in which you deposit a quarter which you retrieve when you return it.) I gave up on that while people were trying to unjam it and paid a couple of ladies for their cart, which they were just finishing unloading.

Got our stuff at Aldi's plus a few extras including the most enormous green olives I have ever seen, which are quite good, imports from Spain. (I already ate 3.) I went to Dollar General to pick up a few stocking-stuffer type gifts. It was very clean and organized and I found everything I wanted, including a paid of high powered reading glasses which I need to finish a needlepoint.

Meanwhile, my daughter had gone down to Dollar Tree, which we were in the other night and I absolutely refuse to shop at again. It is a filthy store - trash all over the floor and everything jumbled by customers. Worst type of place and I have my standards. (Around here there are Dollar tree, Family Dollar, and Dollar General.)

We are home, everything is unloaded, and I am thawing chicken to make Chicken Marsala for supper.

We've done 23AndMe, and this year my spouse gifted his sibs and momma. Well received.

My husband did his a few years ago, and gave me a kit for Christmas.
I didn't do mine for quite a while, not wanting to know if I had the Alzheimer's snip---figured every time I misplaced my phone I'd think it was the end.
Once my older son did his, he "outed" me on many genes he had that he didn't get from his dad, so I went ahead and did it.

FDA keeps 23AndMe from giving you a report on all your information, but you can then send your data to Promethease for about five bucks and get a massive report.

Best news---do not have the gene that is related to increased chance of cirrhosis with alcohol consumption. Or the Alzheimers one either!

Singer Joy Villa accuses Corey Lewandowski of inappropriately touching her at Trump Hotel party

According to Politico, Villa claims was circulating at the party when a friend brought her over to introduce her to Lewandowski. She claims that Lewandowksi seemed irritated and dismissive when he thought she wanted to take a picture with him. Villa told Politico that she said, “[I]f you’re busy, don’t worry about it, we don’t have to take a photo.” According to Villa, someone then jostled her into Lewandowski and he posed for a photo.

That’s when things allegedly took a turn for the worse. According to Politico, Villa said, “I’m wearing this silver suit and stretchy pants, and after the photo, he smacks my a** really hard. It was completely demeaning and shocking.”

Villa further claims that when she confronted Lewandowski about it and said she could report him for sexual harassment. According to Villa, Lewandowski replied, “Go ahead. I work in the private sector,” and smacked her on the backside again.
