From the other thread (sorry, Tom) regarding immunity which Mueller may or may not have conferred...

IANAL, but if one assumes, as I do, that Mueller is a Member in Good Standing of the Black Hat Gang, 'splain to me why he should have the authority to grant Get Out of Jail Cards to his gang mates? Kings are one thing, but even the Popes got paid in advance for forgiving sins of rich sinners willing to buy indulgences.

OL, simple. Rosenstien (also of the black hat team) is running things while Sessions naps (which is generous to Sessions, who looks swampier by the day).

They got risensteins number on ncis new Orleans last night, even though he was a southern wasp, they even threw in the deep state line.

It is terribly familiar, sessions is a traditional law and order republican but some in his circle were future swamp rat corallo (who would go to rep for chehdoury) Dillon who was the latest mole, laufman who checked out in march.

My youngest sister is in surgery to hopefully correct her knee, which has been causing her pain and limping. She already had one surgery on it and it is vital that she get it corrected, as she is a surgical nurse who is on her feet all day.

I had thought the surgery was next week but just got a text from my middle sister and they just took her in. I guess they got a cancellation and moved her up.

"There are more than 2 parts to this negotiation"

Sure,ZTE steals our intellectual property and takes a shit all over the United States.The U.S respondS with Tariffs and bans.

The second part of the deal is that China agrees to loan Trump 500 hundred million dollars and Trump puts his companies profits above the security of the United States by rolling back bans on ZTE.

Let us know mm. I ended up cancelling pt and switching to egoscue posture therapy as I noticed all the knee rehab was being treated the same, no matter the original injury or surgery. When I asked my I was getting worse, I just got a "it happens".

With the posture shifts I learned it was my hamstrings that needed strengthening to get me more balanced. Not that I am more balanced in my gait the nerves seem to finally be calming down.

Too many PT places these days seem to want to turn injuries into an annuity of income, gamely coming in. O'care really has dramatically changed the healthcare system for almost everyone.

rse,

This particular problem, as I understand it, was that for some reason her knee joint was getting hung up on cartilage that had floated loose after the first surgery.

I will let you know.

I had my knee realigned about 15 years ago. While the knee doesn't particularly pain me, my calf will swell if I am on my feet too long. This is aggravated by one of my blood pressure meds, and my doctor's answer to my complaint was to tell me to buy surgical stockings.

I am unable to wear a dress due to having these ankles that swell like I am some sort of invalid and it makes me pretty mad. I haven't noticed that the medicine does me that much good, either.

These getting old stuff is sure a trial, let me tell you.

Of course, using ex-MI6 officer Steele, for the frothy right, is a heinous crime. But using a Russian billionaire, according to a propagandist who has been regurgitating Trump spin since he was elected, is heroic. Perhaps that’s why a Trump crony, Bryan Lanza, is also trying to help Deripaska’s company beat the sanctions recently imposed on him.

Of course, Solomon doesn’t consider the possibility that FBI and State balked in 2011 because Deripaska himself had proven unreliable. Which would explain a lot of what transpired in the years since. Nor does he consider — nor has the frothy right generally — the possibility that any damning disinformation in the Steele dossier ended up there in part via Deripaska.

Certainly, Deripaska’s own asset, Paul Manafort, seemed prepared to capitalize on that disinformation.

Really now, Kissinger thinks that the following is true?


"Heretofore, the technological advance that most altered the course of modern history was the invention of the printing press in the 15th century, which allowed the search for empirical knowledge to supplant liturgical doctrine, and the Age of Reason to gradually supersede the Age of Religion. Individual insight and scientific knowledge replaced faith as the principal criterion of human consciousness. Information was stored and systematized in expanding libraries. The Age of Reason originated the thoughts and actions that shaped the contemporary world order."


Pretty sophomoric stuff, and surprisingly unknowledgeable, even in a sense illiterate. He repeats the long debunked progressive notions of the so call Age of Fatih.

This is the sort of claptrap once overheard in campus coffee shops, usually from 19 year olds.

I guess I have to reassess my opinion of Kissinger. NO wonder we are in trouble when people like him have such silly beliefs and such a superficial grasp of Western Civilization, or even the life of mankind through the centuries. Just a gaggle of cliches and shibboleths, really.

(oh, and the classical Greek did just fine without a priinting press, BTW.)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Just got a text from middle sister. Get this:

Some levity:

The best story of the year doesn't give the proper praise and credit for this painful but understandable story told by a loving wife.......

The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers. Suzie Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise. Two months ago, my husband, Tom, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him." You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Tom must have experienced. "Tom was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move caused him terrible pain."

We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Tom's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold it in place."
Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Tom.

"Now," she announced in a quivering voice, "thank the Lord, Tom is out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover completely."

All the men sighed with unified relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say. A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium. He said, "I'm Tom Smith." The entire congregation held its breath. "I just want to tell my wife the word is sternum."

This is a thread in which Larry Schweikhart is reviewing a book about the election called "Devil's Bargain." He has uncovered some interesting bits of information from it, and also some errors.

MOST interesting is this part of the thread:

28) Green shifts to Trump doing the "Apprentice," and notes that Trump had EXCEPTIONALLY high ratings across all demos. DT himself had a very high "Q" score among blacks & Hispanics (approval). Indeed his Q w blacks was 3 times HIGHER than with whites.

— Larry Schweikart (@LarrySchweikart) May 16, 2018

====================

Larry says this means that his ability to attract minority voters is not as difficult as the general consensus has been.

I also think this might be part of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

As I have said before, my democrat sister was a HUGE fan of Donald Trump and The Apprentice. She used to watch it every week and recommended that I watch it, because she said you could learn a lot of good business tips.

I am wondering if a lot of liberal democrats had too much invested in the party emotionally and felt betrayed by Trump when he went to the GOP. I think perhaps blacks and Hispanics just sort of voted the way they did because they hadn't thought about it, but were not emotionally invested in the democrat party the way liberal whites are.

It's just a theory, but my dem sister is really a strange case. She stuck with Bill and Hillary, while Bill's behavior caused my teacher sister to switch parties. I think part of this is that my dad was a democrat and she feels like she would be disloyal to his memory.

Seriously, she cried on election night and couldn't understand how Trump won and why we voted for him. She wouldn't talk to me for about a month, even though I had never talked about politics much with her.

Thomas Collins,

That series of teets this morning is a clue and the press is going to take every utterance from Kim and magnify it.

The press would like the negotiations to flop, as they would rather risk nuclear war in Asia (and possibly the US) rather than see Trump win.

The degree of panic from all quarters indicates to me there is a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes and many people are in danger of exposure, INCLUDIG members of the pres. I would like to know how many members of the press received money from Fusion GPS or the Clinton Foundation. THAT will be interesting, if it ever gets revealed.

The biodynamic wines I have tasted have uniformly sucked. We had lunch a few years ago with a raucous table of winemakers in Yountville and they were up in arms about the complete BS the biodynamic crowd has been pushing.

A Copper Sulfate based product is typically used to treat the vines for mold. Has been for many years. Works great and relatively cost effective. The bio correct product is much more expensive, builds up in the soil and is much deadlier over the long run. This is one of the central issues the enviroscammers harp on. The list goes on and on. Making wine is perhaps one of the most natural things we do as humans. It has been going on for over 5,000 years.

And now some Marxist ecoterrorists tel us that we are all wrong. Again. Whether it is sexuality, gender relations, race relations, the issue of life or death, or any of a number of other common sense issues, their aim is to disrupt and destroy society in order to make themselves the arbiters of everything.

An interesting factoid about Django. From today's Daily Torygraph:

"He married at 17, and the following year the English bandleader Jack Hylton came to Paris and signed him up. Before Reinhardt could take up the position, he knocked over a candle in his caravan, igniting the piles of celluloid flowers his wife made for sale. He suffered extensive burns, but refused to let the doctors amputate his legs. He eventually regained the ability to walk, but lost most of the use of the ring and little fingers on his left hand. Undeterred, he picked up a guitar and invented a technique for playing with thumb and two fingers, using the two paralysed fingers only for some supporting chord work on the top two strings. He set out busking in Toulon, but was soon spotted and brought back to Paris, where he once again drew crowds."
