Important that we support the nonviolent protesters in #Iran. This is the result of a regime more focused on propping up terrorist organizations than addressing the plight of its citizens.

daddy

Good Morning.


Over here in a Breakfast Buffet room surrounded by brand new adopted Chinese baby girls and their new American parents. Always uplifting.

I switched both TVs here off CNN to a local Chinese News Channel. It has been running a recap of the top stories of 2017 and they keep putting up the video of Trump's cute granddaughter serenading the Chinese President and his wife with some old Chinese Folk Song.

I can't over-stress how huge that played over here. Every time it comes up the News gal breaks out in a delightful smile and recaps the incident. Trump and Ivanka were brilliant to organize that compliment to thaw relations. It definitely was one of the top News moments to a Billion Chinese.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Hi, daddy!

Thanks for the info on what's popular in China.

As you can tell the big things popping here are the Iran uprising and the Huma Abedin emails.

When do you leave for the states?

Damn. Mensah was a good one. RIP.

Glad the Frogs didn't feel that way toward the Americas a couple hundred years ago.

Ted Cruz tweets in support of the Iranian resistance and some asshole responds "Not our problem Ted" and exhorts him to work on pending Senate bills. Really?

Catsmeat

Of course it's our problem--and one of our biggest problems internationally could be solved if the mullahs go down.

This ultimately was why we were in Iraq, this was why the sepah armed the militias and armed them epms against coalition forces.

From what I have read that apartment in the Bronx was a firetrap tenement from the turn of the previous century. This is 2017, where local regulation is ubiquitous, except where it isn't. Like the Oakland fire, the apparent willingness of the local authorities to turn the other way for somewhat sketchy situations involving certain communities appears to be at the heart of things. RIP Emmanuel Mensah.

Hi Miss M.

2 more days on deck here in Guangzhou (sunny and 80 degrees) and then we do an evening leg to Seoul and sit there for 36 hours. Then straight home on I think the 3rd or 4th---I've lost track of time.

Just catching up and plus I'm sober now:) but I don't recall Pop ever making a big deal of Lena Horne. I do recall that as a kid I would go through his War chest and in it were a number of small white cartoon sort of things dropped behind Allied lines by the Germans from planes or fired by shell, and they would say stuff like 'Surrender American soldier and go home because we are going to win the war and your girlfriend back home is cheating on you." Those were fascinating, as was all the other stuff in his war chest, like I suspect your pop's was also.

My iPhone is crapping out on me in SV. Sidebar to Beasts: great email.

49 degrees here today. We took a beautiful walk about 2pm. Grilled salmon with red curry veggies. '07 Casanova di Neri Brunello. Cheers!

Willowed from the last thread:

One of the commenters on that Josh Caplan twitter post said "this is a CIA/Israeli backed coup attempt." I wish I knew how to respond on twitter because my thought is "God one can only hope so."

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

What do you guys think is going on in Gitmo?

Do you think Jordan and Saudi Arabia on the same page?

Is there any sign we are helping in Iran?

The whole world appears to be rumbling.

 narcisoyea

Carrying over from the other thread

1) hard to know

2) like we did for solidarity

3) yes for the most part.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jane,

Gitmo is a good place to hold bad actors. Sessions and Mattis have already been there.

A lot of people think people like the Podestas are already there.

I don't know. I just report.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--A lot of people think people like the Podestas are already there.--

Huh?

James D.

A lot of people think people like the Podestas are already there.

In my fondest dreams, they certainly are, and they're not alone.

You should be so lucky to dine with me, anonymous.

Apropos of willowing: we're dog sitting a sweet golden retriever named Willow tonight.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ignatz,

I only report what I read. Neither of them has posted on Twitter in a couple of weeks.
People are drawing connections to the EO the President signed and the sealed indictments which are in courts all over the country.

I don't know what to think. I am, as I said, reporting what I read.

 narcisoyea

The daily express is the only paper that even obliquely covering the story, re reaction from Washington.

According to new documents, Hugh efner specified that his widow, 31-year-old Crystal Harris, and his four children, ages 26 to 65 from prior marriages, must not use any unprescribed drugs or become dependent on alcohol.

If they do, they will be kicked out of the trust, which is valued at $43 million dollars.

Re Ryan and nonviolent protests: It's fine with me if politicians talk about nonviolence. Clearly taking down Imam Khameinei will take violence or the credible threat of violence. I just hope that if we are involved in helping coup plotters, we are prepared to do the necessary, so that we don't have Bay of Pigs redux.

Clarice Feldman

Can't get enough of heroes. where would we all be without them?

matt- deplore me if you must

There are several Army decorations for bravery outside of combat, notably the Army Commendation Medal. There is also the Soldier's Medal, which is a higher decoration. It sounds like this soldier deserves the latter. God bless his soul.

Or if we are not prepared to do the necessary, the Saudis and Israelis are.

Apparently the Hezbos are less popular in Tehran than they were in the 44 White House.

I will go on the record as being in support of both nonviolent and violent protesters in Iran. Iran is not Berkeley.

I'm hoisting a glass of Great Lakes Barrel Aged Barley Wine to the hero of the thread and the brave Iranians who thirst for freedom.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Wasn't criticizing you, MM, just questioning a highly unlikely assertion by whoever said it.
If it's true I might have to start wondering about Trump's authoritarian streak, which in fact is an utter fantasy of the professional victims of the left.

First half was a flat out ass whooping by the Buckeye defense.

See what happens in the second.

--It's fine with me if politicians talk about nonviolence.--

Me too if it is a strategic decision. Has Ryan ever made a strategic decision? He's hell on tactics but strategery seems a foreign language.

Curious what anyone here thinks of Johnathon Richman.
Sometimes he seems brilliant and at others a moron and most of the time he seems. as I saw it put somewhere, like music's version of Andy Kaufman; making a career out of manipulating people into wondering whether he's serious.

Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime’s corruption & its squandering of the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism abroad. Iranian govt should respect their people’s rights, including right to express themselves. The world is watching! #IranProtests

I'd take that "slumlord" piece with some large grains of salt. Seems like the fire likely had nothing to do with any code violations, but was started by a 3-year-old "playing with a gas stove." Even fancy Park Ave buildings get cited for violations, and it sounds like many of the complaints were about things like elevator problems. Maybe the landlord is an evil villain, but maybe tragedies happen without an evil mastermind. But regardless, Emmanuel Mensah was a hero. RIP.

And right on cue, as the Iranian population hits the streets in a mass movement in search of freedom, the Archbishop of Canterbury sees fit to dump on Trump.

Man, I would hate to be in a foxhole with Justin Welby.

Probably they are viewing it through the template of grenfell towers which happenedvunder aomeqhat similar conditions. But this real life Mr. Potter is hard not to pigeonhole.

Dave (in MA)

Reportedly the tot was known to have a tendency to play with the stove, so preventive measures such as putting the knobs in a cabinet would have been the smart thing to do.

But I thought Obama signed a wonderful Peace Plan with the moderate Iranians. Was I misinformed?

daddy,

I see you have noticed that the "Peace Plan" isn't woth sour owl crap.

"The BBC documentary questions whether transitioning is the best path for every child with gender dysphoria."

So it was canceled by the CBC because of protests by "activists."

Emmanuell Mensah, emigrated from GHANA, 5 years ago. He served his beloved Country. He SERVED.
GOD BLESS THIS MAN.

Ask not what your Country can do for you, Ask what YOU can do for your Country.

God bless Emmanuell Mensah. He deserves to be interred at ARLINGTON.
