Cool story.

Jane

Perhaps Trump should mention that Haiti is only a shithole because of the rip offs by the Clintons.

Extraneus

He didn't call Haiti a shithole, Jane. Tapper reports:

Jane

Well then he can blame Obama Ex.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Notice how they pushed to make it about Haiti and sort of ignored Africa. Why would that be?

Because there is a large Haitian community in Florida with votes. A lot of them supported Trump in the election because of Hillary Clinton robbing their country blind.

So therefore, it's important to alienate the Haitians.

So the MD AG promises to sue if the Feds don't give MD a drilling waiver "like FL where Trump has a big resort...we are going to see them in court."

I hate Fox after lunch. The entire afternoon is full of Never Trumpers. And Outnumbered has Juan Williams on as the guest, so I turned it off because I am not listening to an hour of this BS about something said in a PRIVATE MEETING.

Weather update: We have transitioned from sleeet to freezing rain again and now it is snowing.

I am not stepping outside. I do not want everyone thinking I have a monitoring bracelet on my ankle because I am clomping around in a boot.

By the way, anyone seen the Clintons or the Podestas?

I wonder if it's dawning on Tapper that thinking he and his ilk can take DJT out is a really bad idea.

OL-

there isn't but the administration did say the states effected could apply for a waiver. I thought it a way to give the envirowackos too many targets so drilling could finally take place in Alaska and at least exploration work can start on the Atlantic OCS. Disappointing too because Delmarva and the Chesapeake are probably one of the better areas to explore on the Atlantic coast and that area is about as poor as you will find in the US.

NBC confirms U.S. Ambassador to Panama John Feeley is resigning on principle, telling the State Dept he can no longer work under @realDonaldTrump. He is the first U.S. diplomat to resign over the president's comments.

And then Richard Grenell (STILL waiting for confirmation as ambassador to Germany) replies:

Who did you confirm this with? it is wrong and must be corrected. It was well-known at State in December that he was leaving.

And from another tweet, we discover that he announced his RETIREMENT in December.

The press is our enemy. Never forget it.

I've prattled on before about the Chesapeake crater and the geological work linking impact features and oil fields. iirc some old field work in Chesapeake indicated 3 billion barrels but that was an extrapolation from data from a 50's water exploration survey.

for some reason I've thought the OCS of the Carolinas would be about one of the best places to explore although the depth would be deeper the GOM (if memory serves).

Even if Trump said what the Bezos Daily Worker reported he said, I heard on a CBS News radio update that he used a profanity to describe immigrants from African countries. Not the countries, but the immigrants.

And they have this beaut of a headline up on their site right now: "Trump commemorates MLK Day after "sh*thole" comments" [Though Googling for it shows it to you without the *]

Good afternoon! I just read a story in the Portland paper that is reprinted from Seafood News. Switzerland has banned the culinary practice of throwing live lobsters into a pot of boiling water. Lobster may no longer be transported on ice,but must remain in their natural environment. Lobsters must be "stunned" before being thrown into boiling water. Italy has also adopted similar rules. Keeping lobster on ice causes unjustifiable suffering because according to studies,a lobster can differentiate 1/10 of a degree fahrenheit. The science is settled!
A wry commenter said,"either way the lobster is screwed."

I deleted an earlier tweet about Ambassador Feeley's resignation over concerns the phrasing was misleading. Feeley resigned December 27th, according to the State Dept. In the resignation letter read to @reuters, he cited political conflict with the current president's policies.

Sadly, Haiti would probably still be a shithole even without the Clintons. It's because it's a shithole that they were so easily able to steal billions of dollars (and a few villages worth of children) from it.

Isn't it funny that the narrative went from "he's going to cave on immigration" to "he's asking why we have to take people from shithole countries"?

Interesting link, exdem.

Dave (in MA)

My employer just announced in a posting that they're increasing parental leave benefits to mothers or fathers who've had a child, effective 1/1/2018.

Immediately, two of my close co-workers chimed in with comments about how it's unfair to people who have recently had a child before the increased benefit was announced. Both of them were Waaah-Trumpers who were bleating in Nov. '16 about how they were planning to have kids and buy a house but now they can't because the "Economy is going to get all Trumpy". LOL

Dave, did you mention the global footprint of all the wee children, and how bringing children into Crazy Trumps Shit Hole of a World is Immoral??

Hard to understand what happened in that Oval Office meeting. Did Trump really think that Dems were patriotic Americans who could relate to the benefits of merit based immigration? I realize he asked a good question and I'm sure it got no answer, but he had to know that they love people from Shitholea more than Americans. He's been on the immigration issue for years.

Washington Post Quietly Drops Reporter After Attending Democracy Alliance Conference

The Washington Post quietly put a reporter on leave after the Washington Free Beacon discovered her attendance at a secretive meeting of the Democracy Alliance, a liberal donor club where members are directed to spend at least $200,000 a piece to advance progressive causes, CNN reported on Thursday.

Janell Ross, a national political reporter who covered the 2016 presidential election for the Post, appears to have initially been put on leave last November after the Free Beacon revealed documents showing she gave a presentation to the Democracy Alliance's fall investment conference, "Beyond #Resistance: Reclaiming Our Progressive Future." Ross briefed the donor conference, attended by liberal billionaires such as George Soros, on "getting the economic narrative right," according to conference documents.

"Two GOP senators say they don't recall Trump's 'shithole' comment at White House meeting

Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) said Friday that Trump definitely made the remark, and two Republican senators said they had been told about it by others in the meeting.

But Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Sen. Davild Perdue (R-Ga.) issued a joint statement Friday suggesting otherwise.

“We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically,” Cotton and Perdue said. “But what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest.”"

This is a wicked storm. We are getting snow now but it was freezing rain for quite a while in the middle of the day.

So the layers outside are ice, sleet, snow, freezing rain, sleet, and now snow again.

My daughter was allowed to come home early and got here about 2:30. Her car is all iced over again and will have to be scraped tomorrow if she wants to go anywhere.

And the temps are supposed to drop into single digits again this weekend.

Just got a note from my bud that initiated all the In Charge discussions. He is down at his Santa Ynez place and along with info from his next door neighbor, who we have also met, there is a lot of awful news related to the S.B./Montecito mudslides. All the rescuers are staying up north of the disaster and they are really a mess. They are poling the mud for bodies and they are still looking for 47 missing persons that are likely buried in the mud. Ugh. That's beyond the 17 already found.

The neighbor posted this:

Yes they must know something. Our daughter Emily had a mother’s group in our home on Wednesday there were 40 very distraught women. One of them heard that there they had found 80ish body parts. So I think they are going to use tractors now to clean up and don’t want the public to see.
