Honored to have Republican Congressional Leadership join me at the @WhiteHouse this evening. Lots to discuss as we continue MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Yankees hired a guy who had never managed at any level to be their field skipper. It is costing them. They haven't been showing up ready to play.

Not true about grand juries--The jury cannot speak, but the witnesses can. You can even lie about what occurred in the full knowledge that they cannot be contradicted until it's over--That's what Sid Blumenthal did to Starr.

I think in the cases of the people Ext mentioned, it is in their interest to keep their simple yaps zipped for a long time. Stealth Jeff reminds me of what JackStraw is like and they make me think that Sessions is one cool operator who doesn't leak. I'm still not happy about Flynn and Manafort and none of the 4Ders have given me what I consider a convincing response to that, but I'll STFU about that for now. Serenity now.

henry

Good grief. Walker just signed "Sara's Law" making it illegal to threaten or kill attorneys. I assumed even attorneys knew it already was illegal to do that, but then I remembered Althouse was a law prof in WI.

It figures attorneys would get in on the victim class games.

Captain Hate

Yeah, I like that picture, too. I hope Scalise is going to be ok and isn't going to be in pain for the rest of his life. Has Little Dick Turdbin ever released his emails with Hodgkinson? The GOP should be banging that prick 24/7 over that.

Captain Hate

-peter,

Canning Girardi after how they performed in last year's post season is one of the dumbest things I've seen since Boston let Francona go.

maryrose

Captain:
I would like to see those emails also.
I would like to see Scalise as the next Speaker.
Stunning that Page and Strok still have their top secret clearance ability.

Capatain, re Giradi, why was he canned?

Nunes threatening to impeach Rosie and Wray if he doesn’t get documents finally paid off today.
Gowdy and Nunes now have the document which prompted the Russia Trump collusion fiasco.

Captain Hate

Bunky, you'd have to consult -peter for the insider details.

Here's another entry for Janet's HOF zombie file:

The battle is this:

The Left has united around a party -- the Democratic Party.

The Right has untied around an ideology -- conservative/libertarian/free-marketism.

Which is the correct, winningest way to organize one's side - -by party, or by ideology?

Ace, and many "conservatives," are pretty much disgusted by the Republican Party.

But the same is not true on the Left -- 99% of leftists vote for Democrats.

So the result in the real world of party politics is that Democrat candidates have an easier road to winning. GOP candidates only get about 50% of conservative voters, because the rest of us are disgusted.

And another problem the right faces is there is still no good catchy name for the ideology that I clumsily called "conservative/libertarian/free-marketism."

But on the other hand, the Democrats don't "stand for" anything, other than bald-faced totalitarian power. That's not a good way to win hearts and minds.

certain "folks" are testifying in front of a GJ to avoid being the subject of a GJ. loose lips can raise problems for those "folks" so if they listen to their wise attorney they STFU. that's why you rarely hear about GJ testimony.

BREAKING NEWS ALERT: Code red sirens sounding in Southern Israel, incoming rocket warning, seek shelter immediately.

Buckeye

Jr. flew to Pheonix last night to visit friends and relax.

He is staying with his best bud who is married and has 4 kids, an 8 year old, twin that are 5 and a 6 month old. Jr. is godfather to the twins.

Luckily they have a guest house so he can escape:)

He also has an old flame that lives in Scottsdale. Hope nothing gets "reignited". She grew up with 3 older brothers and was spoiled by a daddy with lots of dough. Only person I ever knew that managed to have her own horse boarded at college. They don't come any higher maintenance than this gal.

Pompeo failed to disclose ownership interest in a Chinese govt Oil & Gas firm (The Hill). This right after Hillary called and told him to stop purging her people at State. Was she trying to extort policy from Pompeo?

Very curious.

JNC,

You're a girls volleyball coach?

You just went to the top of my list!

I'm an absolute nut for the sport.

Primarily due to daughters playing but love the action too.

My 16 year old is currently in club ball and conditioning with the school team getting ready for her junior season.

I can't wait for it to start. I'm readily identifiable as the noisy parent in the stands.

narciso

Seems like weak tea, he gave up majority interest 10 years ago.

Extraneus

Er, the CIA director has an "ownership interest" in a Chinese energy company?

Sounds like b.s.

But I guess it depends on the meaning of "ownership interest."

Disclaimer: I have an "ownership interest" in Home Depot.

Ellison Attacks Mulvaney for Lack of Transparency Due to Frosted Windows

"When you got to the CFPB, was the glass clear in your office?" Ellison asked Mulvaney.

"Yes sir," Mulvaney said.

Ellison then put up an image of Mulvaney's office to the room, pointing out that the new windows are frosted.

"So when somebody walks by your office, they're obscured from seeing what you're doing," Ellison asked.

"Uh, yeah. They are," Mulvaney said. "That's the whole point."

"Yet you are the champion of transparency, right?" Ellison asked, before reading quotes where Mulvaney said he cares about transparency.

"And yet you have obscured yourself physically! And I find that to be ironic, sir," Ellison said.

Props to Mulvaney for not beating the shit out of him.

henry

The Hill provides no context. Lack of disclosure gave Hilligula an angle. Unless it was more 4D chess?

Thanks for the Zombie quote, Captain.

Regarding that Erickson article, I want to point out that it was re-tweeted by Stephen Hayes.

I quit following him because of that.

I guess there is no down side for writing up any ugly gossip/lies. Why not do it?

Fake hate crimes, CBC members lying about Americans that opposed Obamacare, Reid lying about Romney & the Koch brothers on the Senate floor.
The MFM just print up the lies. No verification.

DiGenova says that Sessions should fire Rosenstein.

Dershowitz says he should be recused. Says that Trump should make a motion in front of a judge to get him recused.

Dershowitz is pissed about the ACLU supporting the raid, He has been a life-long member, and he is outraged.

narciso

I was about to link that, it deals in a trope I've used nyself

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Dershowitz says that Rosenstein and Mueller are using a grand jury to terrorize people, which is an abuse of power.

They are really dragging the fake news re greitens, evidence is just optional now.

maryrose

Watching Hannity’s very good show.

GUS

Did John Chisholm join Mueller's team?

Tom R

Do they give out acting awards for the kabuki theater that Nunes and Rosenstein performed in the past couple of days?

If Rosenstein is a Black Hat trying to destroy Trump, why did he give Nunes the classified EC document Nunes has been asking for? Wouldn’t a Black Hat have told Nunes to F off?

My guess is:

1) Nunes was likely told what was in the EC document months ago. His threats were all an act.
2). Trump/Sessions are ready for the information in the EC document to become public. Rosenstein gave Nunes the EC document when the timing was right, which appears to be directly connected to the release of Comey’s book.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Qanon just thanked Alan Dershowitz and welcomed him aboard.

The last part was that Dershowitz said that Sessions was wrong not to tell Trump he was recusing before he accepted the position. Dersh feels Sessions should resign.

NOW, since the President hinted we should watch Hannity, I am assuming he is sending a message to Sessions.

Jack is Back!

Back over an hour ago from the Save Mercy meeting. Been scrolling and laughing and frowning and even crying over the comments.

In a nutshell, God Love Them, the crew running the rescue have not oars, no boat, no life vests and don't know how to swim but they think they may have access to a helicopter:0

I tried to inject some sanity into the plan.

1) wearing special "Save Mercy" tee shirts to mass will not do anything you think it will do to save the school.
2) writing letters to Bishops, Papal Annuncios, Cardinals and the Pope don't work either unless you enclose a check for $10million.
3) if you really want to save the school, you need to meet with the Bishop who closed it and have a bullet proof business and financial plan to run it, maintain it and cover its expenses.

Duh! guess where No. 3 went?

Still working no. 3 hard and I think I will win in the long run but time is the enemy and we basically don't have any.

I will pray for your son tonight and tomorrow.
I helped on at least 12 Kairos retreats over the years at the school I taught at for over 25 years.
Be sure to ask him if he would like to be a leader next year.

Nothing like these school issues to teach a person about the insanity in group dynamics, JiB. Hang in there--sometimes logic wins.

JIB:
Your plan is the way to go.
Also go in person and insist on speaking directly with the Bishop.
A conversation with the admissions person and some 5 year projections for enrollment would be helpful.
Also a plan to recruit more students from other suburbs and the city.
Talk to feeder school pastors and get them to support your effort.
Raise lots of money.
Good luck and I am praying for your school and your son.

The Yankee player deserved that drilling from Kelly for intentionally spiking Holt sliding into 2nd earlier in the game. Everything is equal now.

maryrose

Get the big buck people on board.Any chance of merging with another school.

GUS

Maryrose, yes I did, but my son is well aware of how much I love him. The owner of my company's son, is in my boys class and at the KAIROS. I know his son, and sent him a short letter, his Dad sent my boy a letter. I'm certain that I'll shed a few tears tomorrow night.
Thank you for asking.

Tom R

About the eC--there are still redactions in it, Nunes whould proceed to contempt,

The only redactions were the name of a country and the name of a government official from that country. Sundance thinks it was Australia and Alexander Holder, the guy Papadapalous said stuff to while drunk at a London bar. I don’t think Nunes has a problem with it.

GUS

Maryrose, he already asked to be a leader next year. One of the Seniors this year is a fellow Eagle Scout from his Troop. I'm very proud of him.

-peter

What are you talking about Tom R. He slid right into the bag. Holt is a whiner.

maryrose

It is the best type of retreat.
He may give a witness next year as well.Well done dad!

Tom R

Replace Holder with Downer as the name of the Aussie official Papadapalous talked to.

Dave (in MA)

He went across the bag and lifted his foot to take out Holt's leg.

GUS

Oh Good Lord, Maryrose, my Dad passed away over 4 years ago. He would always say to me...."WELL DONE, SON".

mad jack

the 3:15 minute game last night was too quick for yanks-soxs so they are back on the usual 4+hr schedule. #baseballneedsatimeclock

Tom R

What are you talking about Tom R. He slid right into the bag. .

Fairly obvious in the video replay the Yankee player intentionally stuck his left leg out when sliding into 2nd base and spiked Holt in the leg. It was a force play so there was no reason for sticking his leg out like that.

It’s all even now.

anonamom

Oh Gus--who'da guessed maryrose would be channeling your dad? Isn't JOM just the best???

Trump had thought Cohen-Watnick began working at the Justice Department in the fall, but a confidant told the president during a recent phone call that he was not, according to a person briefed on the call. Trump was displeased, and told staff to make it clear he wanted Cohen-Watnick on the job as soon as possible.

Wouldn’t it be the shiznit if the confidant Trump spoke with was LTG Flynn?

-peter

If the slide was so obvious, why didn't the umpires call it a double play.
