Jane, I hope you're right.

It's just difficult to have any confidence in the Congressional R's at this point.

There are only a half dozen or so DBR1s in existence and it was a DBR1 that accounted for Aston's only overall victory at LeMans in 59, driven by Texas's own Carroll Shelby and IIRC Roy Salvadori, so yeah they're purty valuable these days.

McRINO is like a stopped clock dispensing the right time when you're asleep or somehow otherwise not in need of it. I'd love for some interviewer to ask him why he feels the need to troll the members of his party.

SNL should've used Chris Farley's cadaver for Rodham. Btw is NBC declaring that as a campaign contribution?

Jane

I have the same lack of confidence, but not when it comes to Gowdy.

If you look closely you'll notice they pass the same green VW bug about half a dozen times just using different angles and takes.

Hmmmm, you were only supposed to see the car once.

Jane "I have the same lack of confidence, but not when it comes to Gowdy."

Hence the suggestion someone made above that all R's on his committee should cede their time to him so he can do the entire deposition.

This may have been discussed at some point, but as it's on topic, sort of:

No doubt behind the paywall, but Litan (a Democrat) had the audacity to testify against one of Fauxcahontas's boondoggles, on the basis of cost-benefit analysis, and she saw to it that he lost his job. If only Republicans could play that tough, though I'm not even sure I would want them to stoop to that level of Machiavellianism.

IF Hillary runs on a program of confiscating guns, she will get beat like a dime store drum and she knows it. She may throw out some chum for the stupid progs in the primary, but she is not going to walk the plank for them in the general, period. That dog dont hunt.

I put up the Justice press release on that UN Strong Cities initiative this morning and have put up a number of iclei links on my blog in the comments announcing that local governments are the entities primarily responsible for effecting the UN's plans for us.

As I believe I said, Atlanta, NYC, Denver, and Minneapolis are all part of the global push.

GMax

Never get between a congressperson and a microphone. You could get seriously hurt. There is little chance of even one committee member ceding time to Gowdy. They love the sound of their own voice.

James D

jimmyk, they DO play that rough. Just not against the Dems...

The number of bikes at said rental place never seems to change, and I've never seen on anywhere else.

Those bike rentals are all over Manhattan. They do get used, but the program lost a lot of money in the first year, so they're expanding it. :)

I don't know whether it gets explicit taxpayer money, but I'm sure it gets favorable treatment in being able to occupy the most expensive real estate in the country, probably at no cost.

jimmyk

Oh and that's in addition to the bike paths replacing automobile traffic lanes, and turning part of Broadway in Times Square into a pedestrian mall (rerouting traffic). I've talked before about how that last one didn't pass their own cost-benefit test, but they kept it anyway.

lyle

That dog dont hunt

Even a female dog?

Boise just installed the whole city commuter bicycle BS. I've yet to see a single use of one and I work across the intersection from City Hall where there's a parking station with about twenty such bikes...and no riders. There are plenty of radio PSAs pushing the program (the downtown hospital is in on this too) and undoubtedly a bunch of city employees who feel really good about themselves, just no takers. What to do???

Jane

Hence the suggestion someone made above that all R's on his committee should cede their time to him so he can do the entire deposition.

So it's a public hearing? That's not a deposition (as I'm sure you know) but a silly show. Perhaps they are meeting in private as well.

In a depo, it's just our lawyer, her lawyer an her. Someone's been prepping for it for years. I wish it was me.

Re racing old crocks, when I was in the game five decades ago, an old guy running a precious Ferrari said, "it doesn't matter what it's worth, it still just takes an old Italian body man with a hammer and a tree stump and as long as you have the number plate, who cares!"

Bike paths and urban rent-a-bike concessions have both EPA and DoT federal funding. Try and stop it. This is the Uniparty solution to staying power. Fund local initiatives at the Fed level and you control the outcomes and the local powers.

Now the one in Paris is well worth renting and taking a cruise on the Quay's. Its almost an adrenilin rush as jumping off the Matterhorn in a wingsuit:)

DebinNC

"Earnest welcomed Hillary Clinton’s own gun control proposals announced this morning, but admitted that he hadn’t seen the full details of the proposal. He also pointedly criticized the “gun show loophole” for allowing criminals and people with mental problems to buy weapons"

So, Hillary came out trumpeting that as POTUS she'll use executive actions to plug the "gun show loophole" and lead a national movement against the NRA, and BOzo-come-lately comes out this afternoon pushing the same things? I think this means war with those two.

What has Gowdy ever provided other than good sound bytes? Maybe it's unrealistic to expect more than that but I'm tired of people like Scooter Libby going to jail for nothing and the lying about the circumstances of the death of an ambassador not producing squat. I doubt that I'm alone in feeling that way.

Marlene

Driving home from an appointment,I listened to Howie Carr and he mentioned that Hillary Clinton has moved to Bernie's left on gun control. Bernie voted against legislation to allow victims to sue gun manufacturers.
Hillary thinks campaigning for gun control as hunting season approaches in NH is a good idea? Ha,Ha.

What I want to know from our host is what he thinks about Sabathia leaving the team to check into an alcohol rehab center on the eve of trhe playoffs? Are you kidding me. The old Yankee teams would be flabergasted that they could have stopped drinking and stopped playing wtthout anyone complaining:)

A hospital in the Sandbox gets bombed. USAF is in deep shit. Barry has top drawer talent in his admin, right?

So who’s in charge of the Air Force? Deborah Lee James was appointed Secretary of the U.S. Air Force in December 2013. She’s a lovely woman and a great Democrat bundler, which has earned her appointments to posts about which she knows nothing in both the Clinton and Obama administrations. In June 2014 someone in the Air Force thought it might be a good idea to give her a ride with the very famous Thunderbirds aerial acrobatic team. If they could impress her, she might save them from the sequestration cuts. Alas, the ride made her “violently ill.”

Kudos to whomever thought giving her a ride was a great idea.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

For their next great trick they should put her in the bomb bay of a B 52.

 Jack is Back!

lyle,

You can blame the dumb blonde but the problem was G2 and having no FAC on the scene. Relying on target selection inputs from friendlies leads to these mistakes. Plus how much pressure is being put on local air commanders from DC as a result of Vlad's success in Syria? Think about that. Its not new. I went through it 55 years ago.

lyle

I'm certainly not "blaming" the dumb blonde, JiB. Simply pointing out the appalling ridiculousness of appointing someone with almost assuredly no military experience--and, almost assuredly a deep seated animus to all things military--to head up the USAF. Also, note the press not going into paroxysms of outrage about the mistake and contrast that to the press reactions to mistakes made in war/combat when W was in office. Young Josh the Barry Crotch Sniffer unctuously assured the press that the US military goes to extraordinary lengths to avoid civilian casualties. You know, unlike when an R is in the WH...

If you recall Ig, Moss cracked up his own car and another at the Monterey Historics a few years ago. What's a few hundred thousand dollars in damage among friends?

The murder rate has gone down 50% in the past 40 years; suicides make up 60% of the gun violence.

And the leftist turd merchants are trying to paint the country as an ultraviolent Mad Max dystopia.

Throw in the AA drug dealers and gang bangers slaughtering each other in gun free zones and the narrative had better change real quick.

In Lyle's link is this little nugget:

The hospital treated the wounded from all sides of the conflict, a policy that has long irked Afghan security forces.

I have long suspected Doctors Without Borders to be playing for the other team. This would seem to support that notion...

Shares Of Gun Makers Surge Following Clinton’s Gun Control Proposals

At 1 p.m. ET, shares of Smith & Wesson’s rose more than 5 percent to $17.44, while shares of Sturm Ruger’s climbed 3 percent to $57.96. Sales at both companies also climbed in recent years after politicians called for gun control measures.

S&W was up 7.3% for the day.

IIRC Gowdy was a DA and an AG. He prosecuted several death penalty cases. He's got the best style of a prosecutor I've ever seen. And he is honest as hell.

The outcome of the Benghazi hearings will be a majority report primarily authored by Gowdy. The slave pen barons will issue a minority report absolving the Red Witch but the majority findings will be supported with meticulous care - that is Gowdy's forte and I believe expectations regarding a Perry Mason moment are ill founded.

The findings are the broomstick breaker and Gowdy's measure should be taken after reading them. The soundbites will also come after issuance of findings for those who will never in this world take the time to actually read anything pertinent.
