First?

James D.

I've got a much shorter and clearer answer:

The writers at Polotifiction are fucking liars, and the world would be a better place had their mothers been regular clients at Planned Parenthood.

There.

rse

Well I have made it through all 1,059 pages in about 13 hours of reading.

GOPe really should be shot.

James D.

The same applies to the WaPo, obviously.

Either Ryan is deliberately lying about the way ESSA works or he needs better staffers that can accurately read statutes.

buccaneer morgan

Acquainted with grizzlies I say.

NK

So if the WaPo Barbash creature is knowledgeable about Madison and the 1787 Convention, then he is deliberately lying about Carson. This is my shocked face!

NK

OMG, Cohen is brain dead, but still has his byline. This is beyond moronic.... he's gone plaid:https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-president-who-lost-his-voice/2015/11/30/dac3b812-978b-11e5-8917-653b65c809eb_story.html

Indeed,NK.

Appalled

Gee. Jefferson was upset there was no Bill of Rights. He agitated for one to be added. And gee- what do we mostly fight about these days when we talk about the Constitution. The Bill of Rights.

Jesus -- reporters will go to any lengths to demonstrate a tea party politician is ignorant about history, and almost always end up soiling their underwear in the process.

http://fusion4freedom.us/where-did-that-97-of-all-scientists-agree-comment-come-from/

A useful retort to the nonsensical claim about 97% of climate scientists agree that AGW is real and dangerous.Send a copy to the pope if you have his addy.

lyle

From NK's 1:04:

But [Obama] is a cautious man who fears his rhetoric running away from him.

"Cautious"? That's what the elites are calling it? "Pusillanimous" is more like it.

buccaneer morgan

Seeing as they see little use for the most of the amendments.

Au Contraire.

Yes, c, the use of '97%' immediately marks the user as an ignoramus or a propagandist.

The quarrel isn't so much over AGW, as the Catastrophic AGW. It ain't happenin'.

Old Lurker

The quarrel isn't even about that.

It is about transferring wealth.

And it is about controlling populations.

Maverick weighs in:

http://hotair.com/archives/2015/11/30/mccain-lets-face-it-trumps-rhetoric-is-turning-muslims-all-over-the-world-against-us/

The ne plus ultra of the GOPe.

NK

The legitimate statistical-physics quarrel is about the magnitude of the temp changed caused by the CO2 ( I am sticking with Crichton's 1C from doubled CO2) What the UNers and Statists are up to has nothing to do with that legitimate inquiry.

Old Lurker

Ask the old man for a complete list of all Muslims who are not already against us. One sheet of paper should be all he requires.

What a fool.

GUS

NK, why do you hate TEH CHILDREN?? This is about stopping all the CHILDREN from enjoying a future that President Dick Suck is trying to build.

Threadkiller

Jefferson the loon?


On January 6th, 1821 at the age of 77; Jefferson began writing his autobiography.

On page 35 of the draft version, Jefferson recalls a debate over treaty obligations for The Treaty of Paris, which was formally signed between America and Great Britain on September 3rd, 1783, though not finally ratified until it was signed by the Continental Congress convened in Annapolis on January, 14th 1784.  According to Jefferson, based on International Law; the validity of the instrument did not go into effect until ratification:

"On the contrary, it was argued by Monroe, Gerry, Howel, Ellery & myself that by the modern usage of Europe the ratification was considered as the act which gave validity to a treaty, until which it was not obligatory."1

But..., but..., Vattel wasn't translated until the 18th century!

Did these guys read French?

Impossible! Or, as they say in France, "Impossible!"

Doesn't stand a chance at getting elected.

But, ah, the purpose he's there! So you can be accused of racism.

That's how the MSM works.

Rick Ballard

It's rather fitting that progressive fascism should end with a congregation of bankrupts assembled in Paris promising to spend money they don't have to fight a problem which doesn't exist.

NK

Click for the cartoon. Maybe some enterprising JOMer could copy it and post it here.

lyle

Of course the cartoon is from WUWT.

Old Lurker

Of course this could never happen here!

"HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba on Tuesday re-imposed limits on doctors leaving the country, saying its universal and free healthcare services have been "seriously affected" by the flight of vital medical specialists.

In a rare backtrack by Cuba on modernizing reforms of recent years, the Communist government said it would reapply restrictions that had been lifted in 2013."

Talk about Crocodile Rock!!! CHOMP!!!!!

Jim Eagle

To bee, or not to bee, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The stings and welts of outrageous mis-fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die—to sleepst...

Here's the cartoon.

Al Gore says there are fish swimming in the streets of Miami. No shit sherlock. Anyone who has ever been to The Red Fish in Coral Gables off of Old Cutler Road knows all about fish in the streets and parking lots. Its called high tide, full moon and wind out of the east.

matt

Of course the author of the Declaration of Independence had no influence whatsoever on the Constitution despite having sent a number of letters on the exact subject to its authors.

Last week the Left's meme was that Carson was wrong about Jefferson as an author of the Constitution. When that fallacy was pointed out they went on to another fallacy. It's is the political version of 3 card Monty.

GUS

Jack that's not what Gore meant.
Is it not ironic that the EXACT time frame since Gore has left office, the world has cooled and GORE has become wealthy. My son is 14, schools (not his) have taught GLOBAL WARMING throughout those 14 years.
A lie is the truth to LIBTARDS.

He also includes this, which makes my previous point:

Cecil Turner

This is a new twist:

U.S. to deploy additional special ops forces to Iraq, Syria
President Obama has ordered the deployment of additional special operations forces to both Iraq and Syria to gather ground intelligence, conduct raids and enhance the air campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Defense Secretary Ash Carter told Congress on Tuesday. [ . . . ]
Carter explained that the "targeting force" will focus on strengthening the Iraqi Security Forces and defending Iraq's borders.
It appears Obama's neo-vietnam strategy has finally reached the "vietnamization" phase. Again.

henry

Yeah Obama is in full LBJ mode now.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Except Barry is playing both the French and US roles by starting out with his own Dien Bien Phu by withdrawing and losing a won war and now having to go back in and deal with a mess he created.

He will likely avoid the late LBJ role by being too timid to commit enough troops to make a difference.

All of the bad aspects of Ike, JFK, LBJ and Nixon with none of the virtues; a tour de force.

henry

well put Ig

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Damon Linker demonstrates his fetal mind.

NK

LBJ-- for all of his Vietnam faults (and they were huge and many) at least he wanted to defeat Ho and the Soviets, he was a fool advised by fools. The MB mostly likes ISIS, and will join with them once ISIS topples the Alawite Ophthalmologist. Obummer loves MB, but also has an alliance with the Mullahs who own the Ophthalmologist, so it's complicated. He's putting our people in the middle of all that with no clear objective. Poor devils.

NK

Ig, indeed, very true. Alas

DrJ

Jeff Sessions says the omnibus crap sammich just finances 404 for the future including refugee settlement and sanctuary cities. I'm so glad Saving Private Munster is making such a difference.

Only for the past few years, RB.

I saw that story about Clock Boy.

Wonder if he has the right to return?

lyle

Thanks, MM2!

Cecil Turner

He will likely avoid the late LBJ role by being too timid to commit enough troops to make a difference.

He already avoided the main LBJ role by running for reelection.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Tammy suggested Clockmed's ambulance chasers have suggested his trash family has a better chance of winning the scam lawsuits if he is back in the state.

Old Lurker

Dropping that suit should be the minimum price of letting him back in.

lyle

Which means it won't happen, OL.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I think we should import millions more Clock Boys.

Jim Eagle

Don't you have to go through those little things called interrogatories and depositions in civil lawsuits? I don't think Texas is a Sharia state, yet.

Old Lurker

Iggy, I saw that story on Drudge but can't figure how the bear got the zipper down without a thumb?

lyle

Here, I'll save you a click:

Ex-scientist James Hansen, who abandoned science as "just another corporate lie" and resigned from NASA after his plan to send cats to the center of the earth was shot down, has published a new, shattering, on-the-eve-of-the-Paris-conference-government-funded study in which he argues that Barack Obama is in fact an all-wise ancient space alien sent to earth many thousands of years ago by an all-wise race of ancient space aliens.

"He is here from ancient alien space to save humanity from climate change at the Paris climate conference," said ex-scientist Hansen. "Just listen to the man talk. Have you ever noticed he always talks to us earthlings like he is God speaking from on-high to simpletons? Like he's smarter than everybody else? That's because he's an ancient space alien sent here thousands of years ago to save us from climate change at the Paris conference."

For his proof he has produced numerous ancient artifacts purporting to be pictures of ancient aliens one of which he claims is Obama's [O Ba Ma, as Hansen spells it] ancient real birth certificate. It is a hieroglyph of two alien-looking creatures and a small jug-eared baby creature wearing what appear to be space helmets or fish bowls depending on the angle of the viewer.

The study, which concludes all humanity should listen to and obey O Ba Ma about everything was funded by a generous pre-Paris conference government grant.

Jim Eagle

LBJ had McGeorge Bundy as the NSC rep in his bomb plans lunch group.

BHO has Ben Rhodes in the same role.

What could go wrong? At least Bundy had the intelligence to resign and join the Ford Foundation. Ben's only out is to host the CBS morning show if he wants it.

Bear actor rape is a national disgrace. I demand congress act and fund the "National Bear Actor Rape Prevention" law.

Alternatively, this bear actor rape thing, er, fleshes out the punch line of the old joke about the hunter (I know, stick with me, here) who, after several attempts to hunt a bear with ever more increasing gun lethality and instead gets buggered each time by the angry bear, the bear finally asks the hunter, "This isn't really about hunting, is it?"

They usually are, Ig.

French President Francois Hollande is hosting Obama, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and other top advisers at L'Ambroisie — one of the finest gastronomic restaurants in the trendy Marais.

L'Ambroisie's menu is fit for a king — or an occasional president. ...

Obama told reporters snapping photographs to be careful in the luxurious surroundings, "Don't break the chandelier. You can't afford it."

Insert puchline here: _______________

Old Lurker

Back in my borrowing days when called to account by my banks, I wish I had thought to talk back to them like this:

"Puerto Rico’s governor, Alejandro García Padilla, told the US Senate on Tuesday that the troubled Caribbean island has “no cash left” and can no longer repay its $72bn debts. The territory announced it would honor a $354m debt payment due on 1 December as Padilla was testifying, but Padilla said austerity measures had not only eaten into essential services but caused tax revenues to crater. With more than $900m due in January, the governor said his options were restructuring or disaster. Padilla gave the Senate a deadline of Dec. 11 to provide Puerto Rico a viable restructuring plan."

lyle

Mea culpa to all JOM cinephiles!

The province of Nova Scotia has approved a lease to allow the Norwegian oil company Statoil to explore near Georges Bank and the entrance to the Gulf of Maine. The reporter at the Portland Press Herald received most of his information from an oceanographer from the Bigelow Laboratory. Then,halfway through the article, the reporter makes the disclaimer that he is a trustee of the Bigelow Lab. Fair and balanced,ha,ha.

French President Francois Hollande is hosting Obama, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and other top advisers at L'Ambroisie — one of the finest gastronomic restaurants in the trendy Marais.

My fashion designer niece lives in the Marais and was walking back to her atelier when the Gendarmarie all of sudden cordoned off her sidewalk and the street. So, she stood there and watched Bozo and his entourage pull up, inconvience everyone in the area then walk into the restaurant (over-rated in my opinion as well as Michelin). She is French through and through, although from the conservative southwest and was not impressed.

But like she tells me, she survived the attacks on Friday so Obama is not so hard.

Marlene

Dave,I'm amazed about that endorsement.
When I was in 5th or 6th grade,I worked on the school paper. One day I came home from school and said,now I know how William Loeb feels,running a paper. My parents laughed.
