Specifically, the athletes who are the focus of the I.A.A.F.’s rules are those who have testes. Starting in puberty and as adults, their testes produce sperm, not eggs, and supply testosterone in quantities that biologically female bodies and their ovaries never come close to producing.

How about as a starting rule: if you have testes instead of ovaries, you can't compete in women's events. I really don't see why that's so horribly unfair.

Instead of men's / women's events we get alpha's / beta's?

How about Chromosomes. That would be nice.
Then Caitlin could compete in the DECATHLON.
Otherwise, those "formerly known as men", should be able to compete on the ladies golf circuit. LPGA as it's been known.

Morning all! Off for a nice day with nineteenth-century scholars (all sorts)--yesterday, with the same seminar we treated 1) a map by David Livingstone; 2) a Wordsworth sonnet; 3) Dickens's only fairy tale, "The Magic Fish-Bone" (this was my presentation; 4) German late century racist and imperial children's toys; 5) habeus corpus pleas in Seattle in 1885; 6) the correspondence between George Eliot and Harriet Beecher Stowe. An interesting melange (as here, often)...more today starting with the skull of Chief Wakara (Ute).

If Mueller can't make his case without talking to Trump, why would a sane lawyer agree to an interview?
Obviously political advisors might take a different line.

If that outcome is the plan, it is a dumb plan. Indict your enemies immediately before the midterms? Political Purge / Kristalnacht / Facist Coup !!!eleventy!!! Trump isn't stupid, so he wont do that as a plan.

Really? I thought the general consensus from the Ledge dwellers is that you guys are demanding indictments of Obama officials and the Clintons and a lot of are pissed off that they haven’t already happened, which is the basis for the criticism against Sessions for his perceived inactivity.

Do you really think moderate/independent swing voters will punish GOP candidates and support Democrat candidates once the full scale criminal corruption of the Obama administration, Clinton Foundation and DNC is publicly exposed?

This is a good explanation on why we needed Trump.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Since the subject has been re-introduced, I am going to post my comment from the end of the last thread:

henry,

If Mueller is up to his eyeballs in Uranium 1, then it would make sense that he is in danger of prosecution and disgrace.

One theory I have read is that Trump already knew that and leveraged him into heading a Potemkin investigation, hiring all dem donor types to lull the miscreants into thinking they were safe.

Pretty fanciful, but it IS one explanation.

Like I said yesterday, I do think Trump is aware of things and isn't going to be trapped. (Look at his tweet you posted earlier).

What I DO believe is that the first indictments, possibly before the midterms, will be of people who did something so outrageous, with obvious proof, that it will be indefensible by the left.

Notice how Anthony Weiner was abandoned. 1. There was incontrovertible evidence. 2. Sex with underage girls is indefensible. Thus, Weiner became a non-person. Huma Abedin has also disappeared because of her association with Weiner. (She is no doubt still around, but not in the public eye.)

If the investigations so far (from Huber and Horowitz) don't contain something like that, then I believe, like you, that prosecutions will be later, as the potential for charges of persecution and such would play into democrat hands.

Therefore, it is imperative that we win the midterms.

If that outcome is the plan, it is a dumb plan. Indict your enemies immediately before the midterms? Political Purge / Kristalnacht / Facist Coup !!!eleventy!!! Trump isn't stupid, so he wont do that as a plan.

But that would have also been the reaction had Trump done it earlier, as demanded by the Ledgers.

It would be dumb to do it immediately before the midterms, but it would have been great to do it on January 21, 2017?

I'm confused. When is/was the optimal time?

My whole thinking as a member of Team Stealth is that it makes zero sense to indict right away after coming into office. You don't have the team, you don't have a case put together (obviously), you're focused on bigger things, and the country as a whole doesn't want it. And you've got previous administration holdovers to deal with who are going to be dangerous.

But as time goes by and you've made progress on your agenda and more details of the past administration's crimes are exposed to the public and you've had time to edit the team and assemble a case and there's an election coming up....

“The questions are an intrusion into the President’s Article 2 powers under the Constitution to fire any Executive Branch Employee...what the President was thinking is an outrageous.....as to the President’s unfettered power to fire anyone...” Joe Digenova, former US Attorney

I hope this is true!

Tehran terrified, U.S. expert says

The Iranian regime is "humiliated" after a daring Mossad operation seized scores of secret documents, the former Pentagon official said.

The Iranian regime is “quaking in its boots,” after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed secret nuclear-program documents appropriated by the Mossad, an ex-Pentagon Iran expert told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

Harold Rhode spent 28 years at the Pentagon and studied in Iran before the 1979 revolution there. The fluent Farsi speaker, who is now associated with the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, said his view stems from a wave of recent Iranian infighting.


He said when things are not going well in Iran, Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps officials and rival ayatollahs start attacking each other in a public blame game that expresses how exposed and vulnerable they feel their rule has become.

Rhode named senior Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli from northern Iran who has been lashing out at rivals, saying their corruption was bringing down the regime.
Israel claims proof Iran "lied" about past nuclear program, April 30, 2018 (Reuters

Israel “humiliated the Iranian government by capturing all of this material,” Rhode said, and many Iranians were laughing at the Islamic regime on social media.

While the global media stopped covering protests against the regime months ago, he noted, the protests are still churning.

The former Pentagon official said that when he asked Iranian friends for a list of where the protests were happening, they said protests were so widespread it would be easier to make a shorter list of cities where they were not happening.

He also said the audacious Mossad raid, “proves what they think of Jews – that they are the smartest people on earth and can do anything.”

Rhode added a personal anecdote from when he lived in Iran decades ago. When asked about the Jews’ ability, he joked to some Iranian friends: “There was a Jewish technology of tiny little zippers between our foreheads and hairlines to send messages to conspiracy central where the... ‘Elders of Zion’ collected everything. They believed this was how things really worked.”

Last week, the body that likely was that of former Iranian ruler Reza Shah Pahlavi – which had been hidden by the regime since the revolution – was discovered. That, he noted, has led many Iranians, who often think superstitiously, to question whether the discovery is an omen indicating the revolution leading to the Islamic Republic was a mistake.

Rhode said the average Iranian “would like nothing more than to wake up and have this nightmare regime over with and again proudly be accepted as members of the international community.”

In that light, he said, it is now “the time to reassure the Iranian people that we stand with them against their brutal rulers,” and reassure the Iranian people that “after their terrorist regime is overthrown, we will gladly welcome them back into the community of nations.”

It's bad enough I had to sit through graham pontificating on impeaching Roseyeyes while protecting mueller's illegitimate investigation. Both men scare me given their prior behavior but graham etc are worse bc they seem to care more about the brotherhood. Onmatter how corrupt! The reactions from the public is like ah well so what if coney did this or Hillary did that or Obama using the excuse Repubs have done far worse
The MSN has been no help at all in this - they encouraged it lied about it
It's why Trump tweets
What is the worst in all this is the majority in the GOP establishment don't know how to fight this evilong or hard enough to get results. I get so frustrated that actions that need to be taken and taken swiftly with justice falls. Facts truth fall by the wayside when you rely on upcoming

ChiTown Lurker wants me to remind you that IRGC stands for ISLAMIC Revolutionary Guard Corps, not Iranian.

Was that your error (I have made it as well) or is it the error of the expert, in which case maybe we should look a bit askance at some of his theories.

I saw the article on the Shah's body being found and the article also mentioned the superstition of the people about it, so that information was already out there.

There is no doubt their economy is in trouble, based on what I posted earlier. I just am a bit leery of people who seem too eager to get us involved.

The Iranian regime is "humiliated" after a daring Mossad operation seized scores of secret documents, the former Pentagon official said.

Thomas Wictor and some others on Twitter are asserting that due to the bulk of the materials acquired, it is highly unlikely a Mossad raid seized the documents. Instead someone within the Iranian government (likely in the military) who realizes the theocracy is on the verge of collapse willingly gave all the documents/CDs to Mossad or Saudi agents undercover inside Iran.

Jane:

"Last week, the body that likely was that of former Iranian ruler Reza Shah Pahlavi – which had been hidden by the regime since the revolution – was discovered."

That intrigued me. Per Wikipedia:

After his death, his body was carried to Egypt, where it was embalmed and kept at the royal Al Rifa'i Mosque in Cairo, (also the future burial place of his son, the exiled Mohammad Reza Pahlavi). In May 1950, the remains were flown back to Iran, where the embalming was removed, and buried in a mausoleum built in his honor in the town of Ray, in the southern suburbs of the capital, Tehran.

The Iranian parliament (Majlis) later designated the title "the Great" to be added to his name. On 14 January 1979, shortly before the Iranian Revolution, the remains were moved back to Egypt and buried in the Al Rifa'i Mosque in Cairo. However, in a recent documentary "From Tehran to Cairo," his daughter-in-law, Empress Farah claimed that the remains of the late Reza Shah remain in the town of Rey.

After the 1979 revolution and during the period of the Interim Government of Iran, Iran faced a series of rampages at the hand of an extremist mob lead by the cleric Sadeq Khalkhali - the same mob that attacked the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. During this rampage, happening all over the nation, any construction depicting or even citing the name of the Shah and his family was destroyed. This included the destruction of Reza Shah's mausoleum, but they were unable to find his dead body.

In 2018, a mummified body was found in the vicinity of Reza Shah's former mausoleum site. It was believed to have been Reza Shah's body. Officials said that they had buried the body again.

I think history will show that many so-called conservatives are actually using words with unappreciated hidden meanings to advance the MH prog vision without that being readily apparent. For many the so-called conversion was merely a rejection of stalinism or maoism and not a rejection of a belief that government can mandate that all needs be met given the current state of technology and world wealth.

Rather than own up to the history of their vision and just how much it relies on a changed conception of education they lie and hide behind terms like school choice and quality learning. Meanwhile they know precisely where their espoused ideas come from. They simply hope that we don't know and will defer to people like jonah or bill kristol or david horowitz as the designated intellectual who will tell us what we need to know. No need to read those resources for ourselves.

I listened to a lecture horowitz gave at the reagan ranch back in march and was struck by just how much he seemed to be wrapping an mh vision in language of the supposed 'founding fathers'. He also made quite a strawman of soviet communism as if it was synonymous with what marx actually had in mind. roger kimball does the same thing.

I’ll stick with what I have been saying since the outset. Everything part of the ORT (new term pending approval by Ledge dwellers) plan, the Mueller investigation, the Horowitz IG investigations, the investigations into Uranium One, Clinton Foundation, sex trafficking etc is all scheduled for release prior to the 2018 midterms.

I honestly don't remember you specifically saying this.

It is very similar to what I said last year about giving up on Sessions, so I don't know how I missed it.

The big blowup we had would have been adverted if I knew this.(or if you reiterated it when I asked about time frames.) I'll try to pay better attention to your comments that have specifics. Or, better yet, I'll let TC do all the asking. :-)

I have always been an advocate of the same position as Porchlight. There is no way he could have shitcanned everyone on day one and quite a bit behind the scenes needed to be done. You won't find a single comment of mine that would disagree with that.

I have not been a fan of the vague predictions that make it impossible to not be wrong when reckoning day comes.

Staking out a period in time where 4D needs to reveal itself is a bold step that I applaud. BTW, I don't speak for all ledge dwellers. I think the group is a little more diverse that it has been characterized.

10 Principles for a Federal Job Guarantee

Register Now

________________________________________
Amid growing economic insecurity and persistent racial economic inequity, a federal job guarantee can be the cornerstone of an inclusive, thriving, and sustainable 21st century American economy. By ensuring that every person who wants to work has access to a quality job, a job guarantee would eliminate involuntary unemployment, unlock human potential, decrease poverty, and raise the floor on low-wage work while building stronger, more vibrant, more connected communities.
PolicyLink, in partnership with Dr. Darrick Hamilton of the New School and Dr. William Darity Jr. of the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University, have developed a set of policy principles to guide the development of a federal job guarantee that delivers maximum benefits, particularly for those left behind in our current economy.
Join this webinar for an introduction to the federal job guarantee and discussion about our policy principles. This is the first in a series of webinars that we will be hosting in 2018 to build a robust public conversation among equity advocates about the power of a job guarantee to build an equitable economy.

A job guarantee will quickly morph into guaranteed income, especially when slackers figure out they can't be fired. Good grief!

I honestly don't remember you specifically saying this.

Well I have made the point on multiple occasions over the past several months when discussing the validity of the 4D Chess theory. On the times I've stated I think the investigations have been intentionally slow-walked to maximize impact on the 2018 midterms it was usually followed up by disagreements from a couple of the prominent Ledge dwellers.

Amid growing economic insecurity and persistent racial economic inequity, a federal job guarantee can be the cornerstone of an inclusive, thriving, and sustainable 21st century American economy.

Easy solution for that without any new legislation. Anyone who wants a Federal job can enlist to serve in the US military.

Btw, how would they know if the new scouts are girls?

Jane,

Thanks! Will pass it on.

I don't recall that at all. I'm not saying it didn't happen. I'm just stunned that we both were saying something so close and I never picked up on it.

I may go birther crazy and go back and look, because I don't know how I missed it. Again, I am not saying you are lying. I don't think you operate that way. It is just that if I knew this I wouldn't have asked the TBeans question in the 1st place.

I thought it was a clear sign that the prosecutors cheated and haven't got a damn thing on him.

He's providing dirt on Trump while campaigning against Tester in Montana. Got it.

Rodham tried to join the MARINES and they laughed at her.

Yeah, I'm sure that LIE is true.
