How tolerant for the protesters to call him a pig in front of his grandchildren.

Buckeye

Marlene

You and Mrs. Buckeye are on the same wavelength. She is pissed at the language given his grandchildren are in the chamber.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Those protesters have to receive tickets from democrat Senators. There is no way that Code Pink isn't recognizable to Capitol Hill police.

Even I, out here in the Heartland, recognize Medea Benjamin's mug.

Twitter comment from MTV News guy over Sessions' adopted grandchildren:

Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys "R" Us you stole her from

jimmyk

Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys "R" Us you stole her from

"Adopted grandchildren" were presumably adopted by his kids, not by him, correct?

Bad move:
It's a losing strategy: you don't pin pawns with your queen.

Good move:
Pawn threatens King; Knight takes Pawn.

Of course there would be no good move if the 3AM bad move was never tweeted.

Here is a video of the Fox and friends interview that includes the long setup to Conway's excellent response:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/01/09/kellyanne_conway_i_wish_meryl_streep_was_as_concerned_about_disabled_boy_tortured_on_facebook_live.html

I look at this chessboard as a multitasker. Trump's Queen did not get used at all in this set of moves. He wore a different hat to cause the mayhem that led to the Knight's better position. IMO he didn't even put on the hat of a Pawn. Instead he inserted a little red game piece from "Sorry!" into the traditional media Chessboard that went unnoticed.

They think they are playing the same game because they always think high level pieces are moving on the board. Not only are all the pieces moving, there are pieces they have never seen that are moving, as well as the whole board is spinning.

His tweeks take zero time and usually direct the game his way. Streep wasn't a Pawn in this set of moves. She is a high value piece. Look at the press she generated. I'd make her a Rook, and the Media the King.

Trump used a Sorry piece to disable their Rook and force their King to start dancing when they were confronted by his Knight.

I like it.

Me too.


MAGA.

the generallyistic deplorable rich

This is my shocked face that the hearings are turning into a freak show.

So much for the comity of the senate. Kerry was confirmed 94-3.

Jim Eagle

Isn't Mr. Khan's 15 minutes up already?

The Democrats are showing everyone that they learned nothing on November 9th, 2016.

Sandy Daze

I'm in Dunedin, FLA for a few days. Any JoMers nearby for a cuppa joe ?

Sandy,

common man aka GMax is in that vicinity.

Hostage situation in Alabama. Sure hope not tied to Session's hearing.

buccaneer morgan

Mock is removing all doubt.

Marlene

Sandy,we're a couple of hours south of you. :(

Thomas Collins

Depending on one's concern about a pawn becoming a queen, it may be a good move for a queen to pin a pawn.

Marlene

Dunedin is near Clearwater? I think common man is in Destin.

Sessions just said he would recuse himself from any Clinton investigation.

Jim Eagle

Credit Union in Tuscaloosa but not a robbery.

And reconfirming the rightness of the outcome.

Thomas Collins
"Great speech by Collins."

Don't mention it, Marlene. Glad to be of service.

Jim Eagle

marlene,

Thanks for the correction. Need to change my contacts out. Read it as Destin not Dunedin.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Sessions will recuse himself from Clinton. Says he would defer to a deputy to make decisions. Grassley helpfully points out that Lynch didn't do this. Heh.

Sessions says we do not prosecute political opponents but we also need to make sure people are not above the law.

Grassley asks him if he would submit to oversight, unlike many who have gone before, who says they will in confirmation hearings and then don't. Grassley gives him a bunch of letters sent to Obama's AG's which have never gone answered.

Feinstein is now asking about child sex trafficking. ( o ^ O ) YIKES!

>>>When North Koreans hacked Sony Pictures ...<<<

I think he meant the inside job, then the troll job after ...

>>>At the time of the D.N.C. attack, water treatment plants, nuclear power plants and even casinos were on the Department of Homeland Security’s “critical infrastructure” list. Voting equipment was added last Friday, but we must do much more to protect the people who animate our democratic process. Imagine how stolen information could be (or already has been) used to influence or corrupt officeholders, or voters themselves.<<<

Wouldn't a list of what is not critical infrastructure be shorter?

Also, if collectivization is bad generally, and in specific cases, deadly (say in agriculture), wouldn't it stand to reason that collectivization of networks or data is bad?

Jim Eagle

Sex trafficking and Comet Ping Pong not mentioned once.

buccaneer morgan

That was another crowdstrike bullseye, rich.

The wandering coma's enforcer, general gondin, has gone Norwegian blue.

"Police have not yet spoken with the suspect, but are trying to establish contact with him. It isn't known how many employees are inside, but the bank was not open when the situation began."

henry

rich, collecting information in one place makes it a better hacking target... The ACA website opened the entire Soc Sec database to all comers on day 1. The feds are a hindrance, not a help here.

Truthbetold5

Still worried about your pal Alefantis, Jack?

the generallyistic deplorable rich

Crowdstike came up with the Norks did it thesis for the Sony hack?

iirc, some of the more marginally attached anonymous script kiddies came up with the Norks after the fact.

buccaneer morgan

Yes that hacker out of anapa, belan says thanks

James D

Sounds to me as though it's time for the full nuclear option.

The Dems are making it clear that there is no other way to deal with them.

Cecil Turner

Cecil, Does this amount of homework fit with your knowledge of General Mattis? If so, he sure ain't mentally lazy.

At the time, he was a LtCol Inf Bn C.O. attached to a Task Force (Ripper) centered around a tank Bn. In effect, he was an alternate ops officer when he was doing staff work and of course commanded his own unit.

The few interactions I had with him were in his staff function, and no, he certainly wasn't lazy. In fact, they had a bunch of crazy ideas (in one, they proposed a bunch of 4-man infantry "hunter killer" teams with a TOW missile spread all over the desert: obviously unworkable and I don't know if Mattis himself was involved in that one, but you get the idea: highly innovative). As a loosely attached staff aviator, he mostly ignored me.

Trump used a Sorry piece to disable their Rook and force their King to start dancing when they were confronted by his Knight.

That's one way of looking at it. An alternate is that when he got around to delegating, he did a good job.

Just glancing at those tweets (about Russia, the disabled guy, intel weenies, dishonest media, and Streep), there's little doubt it's sucking up some of his brain bytes. And no offense TK, but if someone is going to convince me he's not fixated on minutiae, it probably won't be you.

dublindave

Dude, watching Meryl Streep, not just a national but a world treasure, destroy the republican party for it's lack of morals was a thing to behold.

Jesus.

The Republican party and it's base had to defend their right to humiliate a man with a serious disability...their right to humiliate and fucking degrade him as a disgusting piece of shit......Republicans.


This will never be forgotten...it will go down in history.

Cecil Turner

Sounds to me as though it's time for the full nuclear option.

Read somewhere a few days back there were already three (R) senators eschewing it. Can't find it (and they obviously could change their minds), but my sense is that senators tend to take that whole senate thing fairly seriously. Prediction: if they do use the nuke, it'll be a limited strike.

Willy

Thank the gods we'll have an AG with a fetish for voter integrity.

We can't tolerate the wrong voters.

henry

yep, wait for this level of bull the set in, then nuke before SC nomination

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Republican Senators take tradition seriously.

Democrat senators ignore tradition, like Corey Booker testifying against Sessions tomorrow (even though he previously had thanked Sessions for his Civil Rights work).

buccaneer morgan

According to the wiki, they pinned it within two. Days.

DebinNC

These Dem shenanigans are a great backdrop for BOzo's "I did it all for you" ode to himself in Chicago tonight.

Interestingly, every citizen in India has an ID for voting, even people who belong to the Untouchable caste.

TC "...concern about a pawn becoming a queen..."

Wait. This thread is about Lindsay Graham?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Deb,

So true. I won't be watching. I used up my tolerance for listening to Obama after the last State of the Union speech.

Willy

MM

How quickly do you think Sessions will eradicate 'voter fraud'?

buccaneer morgan

Leaky Leah has a tantrum again.

hrtshpdbox

I don't think I've ever met someone who actually likes Meryl Streep. Thinks she's a good actress, yes, thinks she'd be fun to meet, no.

In defense of the suicidal inauguration codger, he can't be less in contact with reality than Leaky.

Leahy's column, best graf:

As senators prepare to gather in the Kennedy Caucus Room for the confirmation hearings of Senator Jeff Sessions to be attorney general of the United States, I cannot help but wonder what Ted would think.
Oooo, I know, I know: "if I hadn't drowned that girl, I could probably have been AG, just like Bobby."

Dave (in MA)

My gay bil's FB posts frequently mention either Diana, Bette, Cher, the other Bette, Joan, Golden Girls, Barbra, Designing Women, or Meryl. I don't get it. Oh, and the occasional Brady post.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

rish,

So true. Europeans on the Reddit site are completely dumbfounded that we have so many states without one. (Indiana has a strict one, with financial help and even transportation for those who needhelp getting one.

This is simply a democrat vote fraud scheme. Everyone knows it, including the democrats.

The other thing is that states need to check for doubly registered people in two states, deceased voters still on the rolls, and fraudulent names and addresses.

A very long time ago the dems used to believe "One man, one vote." Since they have been taken over by the progressive left, they seem to have switched to the "as many votes as we need however e manufacture them" method.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

rich, I mean.

Captain Hate

I cannot help but wonder what Ted would think

How do I defend my rapist nephew?
How do I defend my murderer nephew?
How do I defend my idiot son Patches?
Who do I get in a "sandwich" with odd Dodd?
How can I sneak a drink to my ex wife who is trying to stay sober?
Why does my bathroom scale give such high numbers?
Why are there all those broken capillaries on my face?
How does anybody in Vermont believe an asshole like Leahy?

shhhh, don't give them any ideas Miss Marple.

Old Lurker

When do my payments to that dead girl's family end?

Does anyone remember when I asked Russia to defeat RR?

Does anybody else know that we moved our family loot to Tahiti to avoid US laws?

iirc nuking state voting systems was the good idea of Cloward-Piven and started apace with motor voter laws.

now it is critical infrastructure well protected by DHS.

Frau Grammatik

Barry was absent from school that day: incentive is a noun.
Duh!

This noun dates back to Middle English, from Late Latin incentivum, from incentivus "stimulating." In Latin, incentivus meant "setting the tune," from incinere "to sing." The related English verb is incentivize. The less common verb incent was first used in the early 1980s, and has been criticized as business jargon.

Where was writing expert Ben Rhodes?

GUS

Lindsay Graham concerned that Russians HACKED OUR ELECTION SYSTEM.
Total fucking bullshit.
Marty worried about Comet Ping Pong from his Arlington Heights Apartment. Hilarious.
Dickless Durbin wants more CRACK DEALERS released.

Good Times.

Durbin seeking freedom for convicted Crack dealers. A crack dealer in Chicago ruined the lives of thousands of Chicago "children".
Now Durbin Blames Sessions for wanting to RUIN the lives of CHILDREN, whose parents came here illegally.

Other than playing to the base, I'm not sure where they're going with this. Might be battlespace prep for the upcoming fight over the deep cleanse of the civil rights division (which oughta be dismantled, but won't be).

GUS

Have they asked Senator Sessions to comment on Dana Gilbert Ward's dead military child??
I hope they do, I want to know which child it was. Dylan? Maya? Jesse?
Which one gave the ultimate sacrifice for our Nation!?

At least the Tide didn't embarrass themselves.

Cecil:

Other than playing to the base, I'm not sure where they're going with this.

I think the Dems honest to gosh do not believe they did anything wrong and Trump's election is a fluke. So they are set to treat it as an aberration, and will go hard left in 2018 and 2020. I can see myself voting Libertarian for a very long time...

Also, a lot of donors for the Dems are hard left, so oppositional tactics mean money.

the generallyistic deplorable rich

viz cleaning out the Justice Department.

Maybe Dabo can afford a less goofy cap that doesn't make him look like a cross between Norman Bates and Robert Gordon.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

rich,

This casinos being "critical infrastructure" reminds me that in New Orleans, levee repair money went for constructing casinos.

Maybe DHS got confused because of this moving of money to casinos in New Orleans and thought because that was done, they must be critical.
