an informative appeal,

JMHanes

Lurker Susie:

I simply do not know how anybody could still describe Pickering as "one of the country’s most respected diplomats."

[Piockering] has been quietly taking money from Boeing while vocally supporting the Iran nuclear deal—testifying before Congress, writing letters to high-level officials, and penning op-eds for outlets like The Washington Post.

Pickering confirmed via email—from his Boeing corporate email address—that he was on staff at the company from 2001 to 2006 and has been a paid consultant for them ever since.

He showed up here last January when a Clinton email revealed that he’d been helping with a Secret Plan to Spark Palestinian Protests — while he was our Ambassador to Israel. He was still carrying Clinton’s white-washing water when he gave her a pass as Chairman of the Benghazi Accountability Review Board . In fact, given his long standing relationship with Hillary, I can’t help wondering if the Clintons don’t have a hand in that latest pot somewhere too.

Just finished watching the Trump speech. I thought it was very good.

If there is one thing I would be able to advise him to change is the "repeal and replace" nonsense coined be the slitherings Romney and Ryan.

He should say that Obamacare will be reduced to ashes and its creator's will be investigated. A simple explanation that the takeover of 1/6 of the economy by the uniparty was the plan, not better healthcare. Threaten to lock up the computer company's scoundrels, cut funding to the most complicit insurers, and lamppost all the faux-lab coats that sat in the Rose Garden.

Quit saying "replace" unless you are mocking the notion.

clarice

Exactly, jmh!

Threadkiller

Looks like a photoshop, clarice.

;-)

Thread counts are in the record books even though the best and brightest don't post here anymore?

#ThanksTrump

clarice

TK, You can't just obliterate it without a plan--he has one which includes interstate sale of insurance policies which will cover what people want--major medical insurance, and supplements for the poor, inter alia.

Threadkiller

It is fine to have a plan, just quit saying "replace" without at least explaining that you are not planning on leaving 1/6 of the economy in the hands of an appointed ding-dong.

Be clear on the scam.

clarice

TK--look closely JohnF is holding her up on one side, and another man on the other. I hope she leaves him nothing..and her kids everything.

buccaneer morgan

yes, we need a framework, but the spinal column of the health care system was blown away,

Lurker Susie

JMH

Pickering is part of the DC exclusive club. Liars, thieves and
cheaters. They should all be in jail, every last one of them.

Dave (in MA)

I guess it was true after all.

I'm sure Manafort will have Trump apologize first thing tomorrow morning.

jimmyk

I agree with TK: "Repeal and replace" sounds too goo-goo-ey (h/t Porch). How about "Repeal and liberate"?

Dave (in MA)

Narciso, he made up for his temporary lapse from stupidity today:

Representative Stephen F. Lynch
Proud to stand with my friend John Lewis and House Democrats to call for action on gun violence. I certainly understand and share my colleagues' frustration regarding our response to the terrorism attack in Orlando, Florida and gun violence. It is long overdue for Congress to prohibit suspects on the Terrorist Watch list from purchasing firearms. Firearm background checks should also be a basic requirement to confirm that individuals who purchase weapons have the mental capacity to do so without unreasonable danger to the public.

buccaneer morgan

well they already keep the likes of neil steinberg from owning weapons.

FWIW - Another big Farscape fan, here.

JMHanes

Yeah, they're all leeches on the body politic. I was really glad to hear Trump bring up the unranium deal.

buccaneer morgan

ah yes, how could you not like farscape,

they catered a sit in, and they kept standing up, to get the food, now they're just ticking us off.

buccaneer morgan

some good news for once,

ttp://rightwingnews.com/top-news/federal-judge-gives-obama-admin-bad-news/

Dave (in MA)

The radio host Tim Constantine of the Capitol Hill Show is convinced that this Mohammad Malik character who claims he ratted out the Orlando terrorist is just a fake character used to put on a PC moderate Muslim front.

He's also convinced that H-> is going to be indicted.

Dave (in MA)

How the frell could you not like Farscape, you mean.

buccaneer morgan

it's conceivable, there are more template slabs then rubix cubes,

buccaneer morgan

you're right, if you don't 'you might be a peacekeeper'

daddy

Good Morning.

Is there anybody you know who is voting for Trump who is not also rooting for Brexit?

On the other hand is there anyone who is voting for Hillary who is not also rooting for Britain to stay in the EU?

In my circle, Brexit equals Trump, and Hillary equals EU. It's a Venn Diagram where the 2 big circles never cross over.

Is it the same for you guys?

Porchlight

Same for me, daddy.

Most of the older classics, Bugattis, Alfas, Hispano Suizas, etc have lagged the 50s and 60s cars, presumably because the 50s and 60s guys are still buying cars from their youth while the guys who grew up with the older cars are, well, kinda dead.

Yep, daddy. The way I see it, BREXIT = Exterminate the parasites and leeches and begin the restoration of sovereign Britain.

TRUMP = Exterminate the parasites and leeches and begin the restoration of sovereign America.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I challenge anyone here, male or female, to live with, let alone get schtupped by that odious, gangling, socially retarded Herman Munster for 20 years and not look worse than Turrayzzzuh does.

The miracle is they so far haven't had to fish his lifeless body out of the waters of Nantucket.

I'm heading to Yellowstone in July. Isn't Yellowstone near Idaho??? Heh heh.

I'm kind of excited about the trip, but I AM DRIVING.

Thoughts?

**The miracle is they so far haven't had to fish his lifeless body out of the waters of Nantucket.**........YET.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

so far = yet. :)

Gentlejim

GUS,
I would suggest heading west. 👍🏻

daddy

Team Joely Bug (T411) is 2030 miles in, 1058 miles to the Finish. Will cross the Missouri River at Washington, Missouri in a short while, then 100 miles on will cross the Missipp' a bit north of St Louis. Still leading the Over 50 Pack with an average speed across the country per hour of 19.35 MPH if I understand it correctly.

The solo riders started a few days before the Teams started, and the 2 current Solo Leaders are a guy from Germany and a girl from Switzerland. The guy is in western Virginia so he should be at the finish line probably sometime tomorrow.

Miss Marple,

They'll pass through Bloomington Indiana, so tell Nathan if he's looking for another fun Sports Story, to get out there with his pad and pen and get an interview as they ride by, probably some time tomorrow. They're a friendly bunch.

GUS

Narciso, the mother f(redacted) PENTAGON is the source of the NEWS RELEASE. The effing PENTAGON is the EFFING MILITARY. This isn't a MILITARY decision. What mother F(redacted) SOLDIER of any RANK would approve of this Bulls(redacted).
This is followed by OUR JUSTICE DEPT, lying, hiding, and redacting 911 CALLS, and then EXPRESSING UNDYING LOVE for gays and TRANNIES.

And yet #NEVERTRUMP imbeciles want MOAR of this sh(redacted)it.

GUS

Gentlejim, I know I can always count on you!!!!

Lots of driving. Holy Cow, I've taken Gus Jr. all the way thru, S.D., the Black Hills, the Badlands, into Cheyenne for some "BULL NUTS", it was PRICELESS. "Daddy, did you make me eat something DISGUSTING"..... Yes son, why yes I did.
Cheyenne is quite cool, HUGE RAIL HUB and beautiful capital city. But last time, we then headed South to Denver and Co Springs. As many of you know I have 2 brothers with homes in SW DENVER, one of whom actually lives in S America.
This time, we're heading all the way thru YELLOWSTONE, and if possible a bried segue into Idaho, then 600 miles back to Denver for beer, brotherhood, and Mexican food in Morrison Co.

buccaneer morgan

how about that:

GUS

That is way cool Daddy. The things human beings will do. Unbelievably cool.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Barry lies about immigration.
Unexpected!

daddy

Have missed a lot lately, but I see from this WaPo story just up that Video of Orlando attack shows shooter firing at those already wounded

I thought a few days back Judge Napolitano told us that all the dead were shot only with Police Weapons or some such nonsense. I'm guessing that video of Omar shooting the wounded point blank to kill them might raise some doubt about whatever Napolitano said, but YMMV.

Gentlejim

GUS,
However you decide to go, be safe. Sounds like a great time. How long are you figuring for the trip?

Daddy,
Team Joely bug is plugging away. The last 700 miles or so appear as though they'll have a tough slog. That's not to say it hasn't been tough already. Lots of up/down windy roads.

GUS

Narciso, Loretta Lynch should be called Loretta Susan Rich Lynch-ette. Her BULLSHIT and abject lies flowed so naturally. The UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT of INJUSTICE has had BACK TO BACK MARXIST NEGROES, who have NO INTENTION of seeking JUSTICE. Both LYNCHE-ETTE and YOU HOLD 'ER, YOU BROUGHT HER, are MARXIST/LEFTIST CLOWNS.
I imagined my VERY SUCCESSFUL immigrant Grandfather reading and hearing this CLAP TRAP utter bullshit, and laughing at them.
NO ONE IS LAUGHING NOW. There are NO ADULT AMERICAN FATHERS,GRANDFATHERS, nor POLITICIANS that SHOUT OUT, what complete LOSERS these people are. We are in deep trouble. The lack of BALLS in AMERICA, is EXACTLY why TRUMP is "TRENDING".

Janet

Your 12:52 is interesting, narciso.

All men. One Syrian.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Most of what Judge Napolitano says is about as reliable as what Janet Napolitano says.

GUS

Gentlejim, "We" are in negotiations vis a vis the time frames! It is 1200 miles from Oconomowoc Wisconsin to Cody Wyoming. Leave Friday 6am, stop somewhere in South Dakota at dark, arrive Cody next day late afternoon. When I am on vacation, I am up at the crack of Dawn. No offense to all of you named Dawn. And GO GO GO GO GO. Things to do places and peeps to see.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I love these crazy isolationist stories at Zerohedge where the poor ChiComs are the put upon victims of the big blue American meanies.

Gentlejim

I agree Iggy. I've seen him make several glaring errors on seemingly basic legal questions.

GUS

Hey again Gentlejim, I'm originally from Hagerstown MD. The trip thru the Blue Ridge and Appalachians in WV,VS and Western Maryland is beyond beautiful, BUT, to a bike rider, it is two wheels forward, one wheel back, it's RISE and RUN, but it's not at "elevation". Gorgeous is what it is, and it's NEAR THE FINISH LINE.

Gentlejim

GUS,
I'm the opposite while on vacation. I'm perfectly happy to have nothing to do after sleeping in. A good sleep, coffee and a smoke and I'm good.

GUS

I wish Gentlejim. My favorite spot on planet EARTH, is Perth Scotland. My closest relatives other than my Sis and 3 Brothers all live in Scotland, and the closest of the close live in Perth. Gleneagles golf course is in Perth.
When I am in Perth, there is nothing on earth I love more than, getting up early, and taking the short walk to City Centre, with my boy, and buying a MEAT PIE at MURRAYS. That is relaxation.
I wish JIB was here!!!

Dave (in MA)

daddy | June 23, 2016 at 12:03 AM, Bernarchists would probably think Brexit is a gluten-free organic cereal you find at Whole Foods.

GUS

The CHI-COMS, easily recognize that Obama is a WEE WEE TINY DICTATOR in a YOOOOOOGE POND.
Obama is bringing America down. There can be NO OTHER EXPLANATION. Someone mentioned Cloward-Piven yesterday, Beasts or Daddy MAYHAPS.
We seem to want a CLOWARD-PIVEN I.D.CARD to be able to recognize the COMMIE who is bent on DESTRUCTION, much like LIBTARDS and THE MFM seem to think a MASS MURDERING MUZZZLIM, cannot be ISIS, unless he has the OFFICIAL ISIS JAYVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DECODER RING. All of the ANAL...ysis....is predicated on the MFM LIBTARD not wanting to believe.
So tonight, BIN LADEN's right hand MAN, is released to motherfucking (sorry) MONTENEGRO.

WTF, WTF, does that tell you?????

GUS

This BREXIST thingy!! Don't you think that JACK "CHEESE SANDWICH" LEW, such a really really really nice man (GOLDMAN SACHS), and TEEEEEEENY TEEEEEEEEEENY TINY TIMMMMMMY GEITHNER, could be called into ACTION.... to save the U.K.????
I mean LEAVING MEGA-EUROPE MULTI-LEVEL GUBMINT TAXATION INCORPORATED, will cause such DISASTER, THAT ONLY LEW and GEITHNER could save them???

Gentlejim

That sounds great GUS. My meat pie would have to be for brunch. Don't know why, but I hate mornings.

GUS

Gentlejim, I too am not a morning guy, BUT, I should be. I DO NOT sleep well, and even when I get little sleep, I always find, that I am better, by getting up and gettin' at it. I mean, I hate to get up, but when I do. I'm better, and I sleep better THAT NIGHT.
As for the Perth, Murray's meat pie. I am the son of a Scottish Mom, I lived in Edinburgh as a little kid, I LOVE SCOTTISH meat pies, AND, it's kind of COOL, getting to be there and have one, in the a.m.. I have to go to Scotland very soon, as I've got an Uncle that is not long for this earth, and his son, my closest and dearest Cousin, had a "heart attack/stroke episode as his Dad was declining. This will be a short and SOLO trip.

Gentlejim

GUS,
I fail to see how Turbo Tax Timmy would help even if Intuit makes software for EU countries. 😀

Gentlejim

We are very similar GUS. Sorry to hear about your Scottish relatives. Speaking of sleep, I'd better head that way. Niters

GUS

Gentlejim??? Because Wee Timmy Geithner is the ONLY ....TINY MAN.....WHO CAN SAVE US.

The hilarity is in the SIZE of the BULLSHIT/LIE.

And who fed us this SHIT SANDWICH?????

ABCBSNBCNN etc etc etc. They not only LIE, but they ROOT for the COMMIECRATS.

GUS

Love you Gentlejim.
Good night.

Threadkiller

Has the quote attributed to Napalitano been confirmed?

GUS

Do you mean the quote, that said....ALL of the Orlando victims were casualties of the POLICE and/or RESCUE personelle????

GUS

THOSE. The very GOVERNMENT, who would keep us safe from attack and "ALLAHU AKBAR-ISM", is a useless pile of CRAP.
Omar Mateen's BRIDE OF DEATH. IS MISSING.
How on MOTHER F(redacted) EARTH, could this complicit PALI-TERRORIST-ETTE, not be 100% known and contained. FOR THE LOVE OF GAWD, how pathetically fucked up is Obama's gubmint???

daddy

Just in from overseas and I see on FOX that the petulant House Dem's are illegally orchestrating some big protest in the House demanding some Gun Vote.

I don't know more than that, and am too tired to investigate, but I see that it puts Speaker Paul Ryan in the spotlight as unable to herd cats. Any ideas on if this diminishes Paul Ryan? Lately his anti-Trump words and actions have driven me toward hating his guts and hoping he loses his re-Election, ala Eric Cantor. Just interested in your impressions, and I suppose if I start reading the thread you guys probably already covered this.

GUS

Daddy, it's mostly the NEGRO coalition, Cummings et al... ACTING UP.
Daddy, I HAVE NO PROBLEM calling this SHIT STAIN exactly what it is.
Our PROBLEM has been, BEING TO FUCKING PANTY WAIST to tell CUMMINGS...et al... TO ....FUCK THEMSELVES WITH A 2X4.

GUS

John Lewis is a LEADER beyond reproach from the days of MLK and he once blah blah blah blah tied MLK'S shoes as he BLAH BLAH BLAH was a HERO and licked Ted Kennedy's LYIN. blah blah blah blah blah.
I'M SORRY ...JOHN LEWIS is NOBODY. I don't care what COLOR John Lewis's ass is. I don't care if Elijah Cummings is a REVERED NEGRO. Seriously, I don't give a FLYING FUCK who the COMMIES claim these WELFARE PIMPS CLAIM TO BE.
I don't.
John Lewis is a CLOWN. Elijah Cummings is a CLOWN. I don't care that these 2 CLOWNS are SOME KIND OF BLACK.
They are CANCER. They are LOSERS. FUCK THEM.

Sorry. I should have REDACTED. CUMMINGS and LEWIS are FUKWADS. They can kiss my ASS.

GUS

In case I wasn't clear. John Lewis is a FUKWAD, and ELIJAH CUMMINGS, is a likewise FUKWAD.

I do not CARE how REPUBLICAN PUSSIES piss their panties in horror at my TRUTH.

ELIJAH CUMMINGS and JOHN LEWIS are piles of SHIT.

henry

Not sure what that sit in is all about... Dems in the Senate voted down all the bills on gun control, so it's not clear what difference a House bill would make. In the telephone town hall the other day,Maryam said something about having a vote for the 72 hour delay thing (the old 72 hour "instant" background check is smarter government?), but later this summer. Must have been a last minute squirrel to hide how badly Trump damaged Red Broom One.

henry

That would be Ryan..... (Maryam???)

henry

Do we know what time the Brexit results will be in?

jimmyk

Has the quote attributed to Napalitano been confirmed?

No, in fact I believe it was refuted, and that he actually said only that no one was killed until the police moved in, not that the police killed anyone.

jimmyk

And in fact that statement by Napolitano was describing what the government claimed in its initial "transcript" release. Napolitano also pointed out that it was incorrect, or at least that some people had been shot long before the police breached the building.

Interesting development Guy who created GAB one of 3 finalists for WI SC appointment. Note that Brad Fraley (of the odious anti-Trump letter to delegates) is cited as a character witness for this chump. I had the judge placed as part of the old Tommy Thompson statist wing of the WI Republicans, which fits with Fraley as well. (Remember Thompson got ~ 24% of the primary vote when he tried to run against Tammy Baldwin. That same 76-24 split we see in who trusts Republican "leaders" today. Makes you think).

James D

I wonder if any of the Democrat congresspeople actually know:

Who is responsible for putting people on the no-fly list that they want to use as a gun-ban list?

What kinds of activities, connections, behaviors or suspicions cause someone to be put on the list?

What evidence is required of the above to put someone on the list?

Is there any judicial body or oversight process to evaluate said evidence?

What specific legislation authorizes all of the above, and sets forth the particulars for each above item?

What is the process by which a citizen can find out if they are on the no-fly list?

Can a citizen discover why they are on the no-fly list?

What procedures exist for a citizen to contest their placement on the list and get themselves removed?

To whom does a citizen make that appeal?

I would bet cash money that none of the clowns having their temper tantrum on the House floor can answer any of those questions.

And we already know that none of the corrupt leftist stooges at the NYT, WaPo or any of the TV news networks would even think of asking said clowns any of those questions.
