Old Lurker

Razzle Dazzle Man, Henry.

James D

From the pathetic, failing New York Daily News, where the sports is every bit as politicized as the rest of the paper:

Giants fans can watch Big Blue play while fighting off a turkey-induced food coma this year.

For the first time in franchise history, the Washington football team — which bears a Native American as its logo and has an offensive nickname — will host a Thanksgiving Day game, according to the Washington Post. And the squad is slated to face Big Blue for the Thursday night matchup.

I think Dan Snyder is a clown (and a complete jackass, according to people I know who've personally had to work with him), but I am behind him 1,000% on refusing to change the Redskins' name.

Speaking of which, James:

As predicted, a complete cross section of America here at Ss.

The computer which does the take a number system is messed up, so numbers are being called out of order by the clerks. The natives are restless so we had an announcement but people didn't listen so are still complaining.

Miss Marple

Now we had an explanation of the number system.

There are lots of tattoos here.

MM,

Bet most there are on the "disability" scam.

There to sign up for "disability".

Clarice Feldman

according to today's WaPo Rs ought to be terrified --they're coming "perilously close" to losing their Congressional majority.

The CBS pie e about the molehunt, quelled surprise is inaccurate, I imagine the number of people who have access to these family jewels, is rather small, like the suspects in the prisoner.

Anyone ready for more schadenfreude?

They didn't note the sarcasm in rush's voice, was it this insane in Nixon's time, or did the fact that they held congress a restrainer.

Threadkiller

I don't like hearing "numbering system" and "tattoos" mentioned regarding a government office.

henry,

Razzle Dazzle man made his announcements in London, henry. Nice of him to share with us while toiling along the Thames.

And whatever respect I had for

Buckeye

I don't like hearing "numbering system" and "tattoos" mentioned regarding a government office.

I bet if MM sticks around long enough, she too will hear them tell someone to sit down and STFU.

At least this time it won't be me:)

Old Lurker

It was not this insane during Watergate.

The crazies were mostly us Boomers, but DC still had mature WWII vets on the Hill and while partisan, they were more patriotic by a mile than Progs and even GOPe are today.

Forty years of dumbing down and rewriting world history has had the desired effect.

Threadkiller

If you subtract about 1,000 posts eliminated by Kill File, is the current 1795 posts a JOM record or not?

During Scorekeeper's heyday, he never ruled out all of my trollish birther responses to the non-trollish after-birther arm waving when it came to setting records.

If that helps. ;-)

James D

On April 27, Clinton’s top aides are attending a “thank-you party” at the apartment of Charles Myers. The source added, “Everybody will be eyeing everyone else suspiciously.”

What a fun event that will surely be.

It puts me in mind of those sting operations the police sometimes run to catch people with outstanding warrants - they send out fake letters telling people they've won money or something, or were nominated for a community award or whatever, and once everyone is there, they lock the doors and arrest everyone.

....had for Joni Ernst went bye-bye with her comments on Trump and weekends and golf. Pretty ironic coming from a member of a club that works only part of the time in April on the People's urgent business.....

Old Lurker

Narc, this line in your 9:49 explains exactly what happened to Bret Baier's show starting last summer. Femall.

"If I were Fox talent right now, I'd be very nervous and especially careful about saying anything too positive about Trump. I'd remember to add a few negatives, maybe more than a few, to undercut any approving statements about the president or his policies, just like they do it on CNN. The Murdoch boys will be watching. "

Old Lurker

Jack, as I did the math last night, Joni gets to work 7 days of 30 in April, and Trump works 30/30 starting at 5am.

Old Lurker

And even on the golf course, do you have any doubt that Trump is working working working with real opinion learders vs Obama playing only with staff or celebs.

jimmyk

It puts me in mind of those sting operations the police sometimes run

Heh, though in this case they better damn well show up, and with a smile, as anyone not there will be a prime suspect.

Old Lurker

Jimmy, the person who does not show up is the rat.

I do like that movie scene where all the bad guys are seated at a round table as the big boss walks behind them with a baseball bat...

narciso

The untouchables, there was a similar setup in the departed.

JimNorCal

"You don't have to like AC or BOR to realize how badly they're both being treated."

Wasn't Rush denied the right to bid on a sports team at one point?

henry

More detail on the "new' health deal. Looks like a total cave by the Freedom Caucus.

jimmyk

This Missouri church vs state case is interesting. Looks like only the wise Latina and Notorious RGB will vote against the Constitution.

http://www.scotusblog.com/2017/04/argument-analysis-justices-leaning-toward-ruling-trinity-lutheran-merits/

If Trinity Lutheran wins, it will make the obvious point that the Constitution is not anti-religion.

Old Lurker

Sure looks like a Better Way to me, Henry.

Would not want to pull anything out by the roots, doncha know.

"Posted by: henry | April 20, 2017 at 08:56 AM"

I persist in thinking that time is on our side, at least more so than not.

Miss Marple

Now I got to see a guy at the window who typed a bunch of st uff in the computer, so am waiting now for my name to be called. Then I have to be interviewed.

The Infamous Ignatz

Story for Porch on the Berkeley commie running UT Austin.

Miss Marple

Thug apparel count is 8

The Infamous Ignatz

So what is different about AHCA from ACA?

Every provision mentioned except the waiver:
1. Guarantees health insurance will continue to cost a fortune.
2. Maintains and now makes it official for both parties that health care is entirely a federal run show and;
3. Makes health "insurance" become not insurance but a public/private welfare plan most people have to pay for themselves.

BTW, if Roberts held Barrycare unconstitutional on commerce clause grounds but constitutional only on the grounds it hinged on the taxing power of the Feds, if the Reps undo the mandate or at least the fine for not having insurance have they accidentally put a SCOTUS poison pill in the thing?

henry

Iggy, that would be nice. Have the Chamber of Cronies "experts" better way themselves out of their handouts.

The Infamous Ignatz

Let me answer my own question.
No. The question was, is a scheme in which a mandate commanding all buy insurance constitutional and Roberts said it was not based on the commerce clause but was based on the taxing power.

Absent a mandate or a tax/fine presumably he would then find it no longer violates the commerce clause.

However, absent a mandate/fine and keeping those other provisions how does it not blow up even faster than Barrycare?

Captain Hate

Wasn't Rush denied the right to bid on a sports team at one point?

Yes, part interest in the Philthadelphia Iggles iirc; which I would consider a very unconservative thing to do but far be it for me to tell Rush how to spend his jack. Rush was set up on this by the Mormon cocksucker who used to run MSG and the Knicks; I'm to lazy to look up his name but he was a nasty piece of shit whom Rush was ill advised to be dealing with in the first place.

jimmyk

Since we've been talking about Coulter, a reminder of the brilliant simplicity of her health care plan:

Congress passes a law, pursuant to its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce, that says: "In America, it shall be legal to sell health insurance on the free market. This law supersedes all other laws, taxes, mandates, coverage requirements, regulations or prohibitions, state or federal.”

Captain Hate

Errrr too lazy...

Jack is Back! (Overlooking the East River and Roosevelt Island)

CH,

I thought it was to save the St. Louis Rams? He was joining a syndicate. Sticks in my mind for some reason.

Clarice Feldman

Something must be going on here--presidential motorcade passed by my house twice this morning (could be Trumpfamily members ofrveep or the president) Several embassies around here--most likely Malaysian or Italian--haven't checked Trump schedule today,

Porchlight

Iggy, sounds about right. This doofus sadly isn't alone; most of the people under him are equally leftist, including my department's director. Fenves actually reins it in a bit more than she does. He also has a better handle on punctuation and grammar, or at least a better editor.

James D

JiB, I remember it that way, too

matt, deplore me if you must

Can someone send out a search party for TM? 1800+ comments on this thread?

Porchlight

Trump schedule for today:

10:30 am || Receives his daily intelligence briefing

Noon || Announces a trade practices investigation

2:00 pm || Meets with National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster

3:00 pm || Begins meetings with Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni of Italy

3:50 pm || Holds a joint press conference with Gentiloni

All times Eastern
Live stream of press conference at 3:50 pm

Captain Hate

You guys are correct on the Rams; Dave Checketts is who set him up.

Clarice Feldman

So that's it--the escort took the Italian Ambassador to the Wh and back--Porch.

narciso

He aS on Twitter some time last night, pointing a number of things.

Captain Hate

Per matt's statement, everyone using a touchscreen device should be grateful for the last page link on the first page.

James D

Dave Checketts is who set him up.

So it wasn't enough that he helped screw up the Knicks.

Maybe it's just a curse - everyone and everything even tangentially connected to that franchise sooner or later turns to crap.

narciso

Yes full admiral ackbar.

Old Lurker

Iggy, if that is where we go with terminating Obamacare on "Day 1", then what was one of the Pillar Justifications to vote for Trump and the GOP will now be reduced to "Well. Hillary's fix would have been worse." (as if the truck doesn't get to single payer this way, just slower than the Progs wanted.)

I chalk that up as a big win for the Uniparty and a big loss for the good guys, and it does not bode well for bold action on the tax system.

Sure it seems like over reaction on my part, but a failure to reverse course on a big-government-welfare-state mentality vs a return to individual responsibility and to get in it's place a small change in direction and speed....sucks.

Better go do my weekly inspection on the Ledge and check the bar supplies.

Old Lurker

To expand...since I live in either MD or MA, the chance of either of those states asking for a waiver of relief from the mandates is zero. In that case I'm not sure anything changes for me under that list Henry posted at 10:07.

Thanks for nuthin.

JimNorCal

JiB sleeps in his own bed tonight? Excellent!
Wish Mrs JiB good luck driving on the mean streets of NYC.

Thomas Collins

Stay off the ledge, OL. Anything that helps the red states is fine! We need healthy red states for when blue states turn full throttle into a combination of the worst of North Korean totalitarianism and sharia law fascism, and we need to move.

Of course, as to whether the red staters will let us in at that point. . . .

henry

we already need a wall on our southern border.

Old Lurker

:-) TC.

I wish Nantucket would ask to join another state, but there is not a Red State within island-floating distance I'm afraid.

The whole scheme was to remove enough big government from the necks of the Red States to create so much growth and prosperity than some Blue States would change course, and together the explosion in prosperity might refloat enough boats to think about the debt and unfunded liabilities. Short of a massive tide of growth, as many here have said how hard it will be to deal with the damage already done...but at least Trump had a shot.

If the ACA is a cave; and if the Tax Code continues to look like a slow-mo cave too, then there is not enough good that Trump can do to float enough boats to avoid the inevitable.

Since Progs never ever ever change their goals, once Trump is defanged and the boats are burned, the Progs will just pick up where they left off. Sure the Trump changes in regs and judges will make potholes for them, but that's nothing in the life of a long march.

It ain't rocket science.

Old Lurker

Henry, so far GOPe has shown no willingness to fund that wall on the Southern Border, and until Trump reveals how he can get around that new found power of the purse, that Pillar Justification too is in doubt or at least at risk.

henry

Walker hasn't built one either OL

henry

OL, message from Chicago:

Remind OL that the Better Way is by and large a "My cronies now, yours have had their turn." gambit.

Old Lurker

Tell Chi Lurker that in that game of Razzle Dazzle, the slim chance of a Trump miracle is being pissed away.

Old Lurker

Go watch any video of Tom Perez if you need to be reminded what it will be like when those guys come for our heads.

-peter

Jeez OL, hope you have several chilled pitchers of ManhattanS on that ledge

Old Lurker

I do, Peter. And I do bounce from side to side I know.

I wake every morning thankful that Trump is in the WH and the bitch is not. But he cannot do it alone and his Congress is slow walking him toward failure of the MAGA Dream. As much as I love seeing Regs pulled and pipelines approved, once the myth is gone and Trump supporters give up, it will take the Perez style Red Russians no time at all to make up for lost time killing the White Russians.

Chi Lurker knows what I'm talking about.

narciso

Yes we know Perez the red lectroid, quite well he is Ted Jason from the drury tales.

henry

OL...

Ans: "All too well."

New thread

Old Lurker

Bye bye old thread.

Regarding the FBI and the dodgy dossier:

"Another American intel source who lives in St. Petersburg, Russia, told The Daily Caller that the dossier lacks credibility because it alternately uses British English and American English...

Both “programme” and “program,” and “organise” and “organize” are used in the document.

Similarly, “the tone of the language is not the way someone from the U.K. would write. The bottom line is I don’t believe these documents were written by a British person,” he said.

Wilber said he believes the dossier was “written by an American, not a Brit. Brits simply talk and write differently.”

https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/04/19/report-fbi-used-dodgy-dossier-to-justify-fisa-warrant-on-carter-page/

Davod

PS:

"Wilber said he believes the dossier was “written by an American, not a Brit. Brits simply talk and write differently.”

Of course, the dossier could have been prepared by a confused deep cover Russian operative who has worked in both the UK and USA.
