If the GOP can’t win this argument there really is no hope for them. Ferchrissakes they’re holding people’s livelyhoods hostage in favor of illegals. I sure hope Trump makes that clear, in the most provocative way possible.

For those asking, the Republicans only have 51 votes in the Senate, and they need 60. That is why we need to win more Republicans in 2018 Election! We can then be even tougher on Crime (and Border), and even better to our Military & Veterans!

Good Morning.

Euro-TV channels are going to town on the shut down and naturally blaming Trump. It happens to be a year since his Inauguration and French 24, BBC, Sky News etc, were all set to do a year in review of the "chaotic, divisive" President, and they are gleefully piling on with this latest tidbit.

In other news, I see that Tom Petty died of drug overdosing. Here is part of what he had in his system:

An autopsy found that Petty had several drugs in his system including fentanyl, oxycodone, temazepam, alprazolam, citalopram, acetylfentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl...

Since there has been so much discussion of Homeless shelters on the thread lately let me post this article on big problems at our Anchorage Homeless Shelter. Neighborhood chaos drives a new approach at an Anchorage social services hub

It has been a real crime ridden scene and my Nephew in Law is mentioned prominently in the column since he is a paramedic firefighter:

Now fire officials are trying something new. Paramedic firefighter Mike Riley, who has a background in what's called "community paramedicine," has been part of the team at Bean's Cafe and Brother Francis Shelter this month, joining cops and social workers patrolling the shelter parking lot and the blocks nearby.

Riley's duties have included helping shelter staff and clients know when to call an ambulance. For a seizure, for example, medication from the Brother Francis Shelter health clinic would be more effective than a trip to the emergency room, said assistant fire chief Alex Boyd. In at least one case, Riley recognized that a "seizure" was actually an uncooperative client pretending to have a seizure, Boyd said — an event that might have drawn down an entire ambulance crew as well as police in the past.

He is a good man and I sure do not envy what he has to go through, but he is definitely making a name for himself as a figure of consequence in our City.

If the Dems and Big Media are so certain they will win back Congress in 2018 then why did the 5 most vulnerable Dem senators vote for the CR?

The GOP votes against are not vulnerable since Flake isn’t running.

Why did Schumer think he could outflank Trump on this?

Because he has never had to deal with a “stable smart genius”. Should have paid closer attention to Adm. Johnson’s presser.

Miss M,

I don't know how he is able to seemingly come home and leave that stuff at work. I know I couldn't, but he seems to manage it. He is an exceptionally mature and very decent, well grounded young man. He and my niece have 3 young happy kids, 2 dogs, and a rustic cabin style home with a view and plenty of bears in the backyard. He goes off on hunting and fishing trips with his best bosom buddy from grade school and I think that is probably his personal therapy to handle such potent emotional stuff he deals with at work. I do know that the Firefighters quit going on calls to the Homeless Shelter about 6 months ago unless they had a Police escort, since the place was so crime ridden and out of control they feared for their personal safety. Nice to see from the article that at least they are trying to deal with the awful situation of our burgeoning drugged-out homeless population up here.

Also worth mentioning that one of our former pilots, a very committed Christian woman, retired early from the company about 10 years ago to devote herself entirely to working at this shelter trying to help these folks. I hear her interviewed on local talk radio frequently, explaining what she is up against. She and Michael are both way better men than I.

Even with a 90% negative media on the Dem's side, I can't see this being a winner for them. If Trump is remembered for one promise during 18 months of campaigning around the country it's his proclamation on "The Wall" and why we need it. He won the electoral and where he didn't is where "illegales" are a big part of the population.

I see the same dynamic here and Trump has a huge bully pulpit. If he goes back on the Rally Trail, heaven help those Dems in States that went for!

Buckeye,

My niece from Beaufort on the NC coastline came up to visit with a college girlfriend from the Alaskan bush. She stayed at our house for 2 weeks one summer and fell in love with the place---the natural beauty, the dog walks, everything. One night at I think Moose's Tooth Pizzeria she and her buddy were sitting next to some handsome young bush Firefighters and that was it. They fell in love, but she had a job in Raleigh NC, so he joined her in NC and went to School there to get his paramedic quals while working as an Ambulance guy for one of the Hospitals. Once he got his Qual which as I understand it is very valuable, he applied back to the Anchorage Fire Department and they took him in a heartbeat. She was able to work out a gig doing whatever she does from long distance on computer from Alaska, so she joined him shortly after, they bought a house in Eagle River, and the rest is history. They live about 30 miles away so we don't see each other too often, especially with me being gone so much, but we text constantly and are good buddies.

Daddy,

Citalopram is used to treat depression.

Your homeless shelter is an out of control criminal enterprise. The director should be fired. The shelter should be closed immediately. The idea that a shelter should be a no-go zone is obscene. Close the shelter, arrest anyone who deserves it, and start over or close it down.

Shelters are not meant to be criminal asylums.

They are very optimistic about their future. They are raising good outdoorsy kids who love hiking and fishing. Mike was straining at the bit to get out of Raleigh and get back to God's Country, and pretty much so was my niece. He's making a name for himself in his job and has been ordered by the Fire Chief to speak to the City's Assembly members a few times because of his expertise. It daunted him the first time but now he's used to it and I can tell from the write ups in the paper that he's considered a person of real consequence and expertise.

Buckeye,

It's a beautiful state. The view out my living room window, even on the shortest and coldest day of the year, is spectacular. Winters are indeed a bit long, so a winter break to Hawaii is pretty much essential, and you come back ready to tough it out till spring.

Jim nj,

I didn't know what you'd think of our Homeless Shelter situation but I appreciate the input. We have an enormous amount of the Native population that is homeless, and they are probably the majority of the homeless in our shelters. The standard sociological problems exist with any such group who's Culture has pretty much disappeared, and who's Genome never developed the ability over 3,000 years or so to drink alcohol without going crazy and winding up in the gutter. Fetal alcohol poisoning is a huge problem up here, and according to the papers IIRC sexual assaults of Native women and children in the villages lead the nation every year by huge numbers. As I understand it most all of our Natives receive some significant amount of income from the Native corporations, whether they work or just lay around, so there is no imperative, no real incentive to have to work, and it is tragic that on almost any street corner downtown you see numbers of homeless lying around or panhandling. I have no solutions, but I sure admire my Nephew In Law for trying.

'Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown. Tonight they put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country’s ability to serve all Americans.

We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators.

When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform. During this politically manufactured Schumer Shutdown, the President and his Administration will fight for and protect the American people.'

JiB,

Yesterday read about 110 pages in that interesting book on the 1854 Cholera Plague in London, "The Ghost Map." Had been carrying it around in the book bag for quite a while but finally got to it yesterday and it hit the spot. Not beautifully written, but the information is excellent and well worth the read. Interesting to read that it started in Soho, on the same block where Karl Marx and his family lived, though in a different year. I noticed as I started it that the receipt from when I bought it was inside. It had a date about 5 years back, and was from the Anchorage Salvation Army store. The price? 25 cents😀 Is there anything in America you can buy anymore for 25 cents? I doubt it. Feels like I made a killing!

If it wasn't rainy and nasty over here, 37F, I'd consider hopping the train to London and wandering the plague blocks of Soho.

Got a laugh out of this graph in Surber's latest:

So the good people at the once-respectable Wall Street Journal have been following President Donald Trump's tweets for a year now, reading them like the entrails of a goat to divine some sort of evidence that will once and forever end the presidency of a man the snobs of journalism decided is unfit for office.

Step six: Democrats have cranked up the blame machine. Republicans have majorities in the House and in the Senate. This is a fact that Democrats believe makes them blameless in the Senate, but anyone who buys this line is ignorant of the Senate’s rules. Any spending bill must have 60 votes to pass the Senate. That means that while Republicans enjoy the majority, they don’t control the outcome by themselves.

Which, thanks to Trumps twitter account, is a fact that MSM Dems can't hide.

We suspect it was from the bottled water people favored from those hand-pump wells in SoHo. He took ill in the morning and died at 7 PM that day. Cholera works fast.

UK teen gained access to CIA chief's accounts: court

LONDON (AFP) -
A British teenager managed to access the communications accounts of top US intelligence and security officials including the then CIA chief John Brennan, a London court heard Friday.

Kane Gamble, now 18, was aged 15 and 16 when, from his bedroom in Coalville, central England, he managed to impersonate his targets to gain highly sensitive information....

...The court heard how the teenager founded the group Crackas With Attitude (CWA), who used "social engineering" -- manipulating call centres and help desks into divulging confidential information -- which they then exploited.

Gamble impersonated Brennan in calls to the telecommunications companies Verizon and AOL

Doesnt say a lot for John Brennan if a 15 year old in pajamas with a Brit accent can make telecommunication Security experts think he's John Brennan.

re staying grounded doing hazardous work with dead, dying, wrecked humans- first responder work....

So on the memo, 200 Reps in the House have seen it and nobody is calling for McCabe or Rosenstein to be fired? They don't have to disclose any classified info to say that one or both of these two shouldn't be anywhere near high-level law enforcement decision-making authority.

Talked to my friend n Wednesday who was in the accident last weekend.
He came around a turn in the right lane and blinked when he saw headlights apparently to his right coming at him. He had time to move into the left lane [he was in a stretch of road with a passing lane] but the gal must have woken up at the same time because her car veered to his left as though to get back in her lane. Bam.
Said after he assessed himself he got out and found their car in the dark. Said he could only see the top of the driver's head because she was jammed down in the footwell as was her daughter on the other side.
The sad thing is he emailed a pic of their car later and there was plenty of room for them to have survived if they'd had their belts on.

Gamble's "Crackas With Attitude" is a wigger play on the old time rap outfit "Niggaz With Attitude" (NWA) from the early to mid-90s.

When I worked in cultural affairs in Vermont's main hire ed salt mill, we co-sponsored bringing "Public Enemy" (Chuck D and Flavor Flav before Flav got jail problemas), "Naughty by Nature", and NWA.

My admiration for anything related to rap ended with that concert b/c it seemed like Def Jam records and Russell Simmons took over with their "bitches, ho's and bling" nonsense soon after.

Public Enemy to me was a tour d' force but had its market undercut by the sensationalist hip hop hucksters like Simmons. They also had a dj who did his scratchin the old fashion way with turn tables not DATs.

I'd never seen a live musical audience move in synchronous motion for over 5 hours of music (not even a Dead show) like they did for our concert lineup. Haven't been to a hiphop or rap show since. Was only there because I was working. Raised a lot of money for the arts and the homeless. Wild times in the Green Mountain State.

Kev,

Nope on salt and pepper. Mostly grey and I keep it trimmed short. Don't drink beer at all even married to a Fleming:) But thanks for the compliment.

Go Jags!

I think you're right, danoso. Only a few people are authorized, but apparently it's supposed to go to the top.

by some weird coincidence, a friend of mine from elementary school was treated by a nephew who works in an ER, they got to talking about last names, and my nephew gave him my email address, so we are going to get together for coffee soon, reuniting after 50 plus years. My friend lives in Park Slope, told me this morning he is going on the women's march, supports PP, etc, etc., I told him that's ok, some of my friends are leftists. I see it as an opportunity for some soft exchange of information.
