A clear case of reverse reverse discrimination, with a dollop of logic on top.

Sbw on iPhone

I thought Chelsey Manning set the standard?




I can't figure out why Harvard is wasting time recruiting murderers to be incoming students, when they could get much more "bang, bang, bang for their buck" by recruiting murderers to be Law Professors:

FREE (Professor) MUMIA!

And lets not forget Biology Prof Amy Bishop.

Who else am I missing? OJ? The UniBomber? Surely there's tons of other well educated triggermen out there who could impart those beneficial skills to Harvard undergrads.

Captain Hate

I skimmed the article (you're welcome, TM) and think that this case gets into the question that if a person serves their time, are they then rehabilitated and eligible to be evaluated solely on the basis of their work. I'm curious about whether her work is any good or not as far as a finished work of history. It's pretty obvious that she, and fellow inmates at her direction, did a large amount of raw research for something I find mildly interesting at best. I can't imagine it being particularly well written, either in terms of being grammatically correct or written in anything other than sterile and boring academic jargon making no attempt to be more than a compendium of barely coherent data. But maybe that's all the school requires.


I realize the story is slanted in favor of the woman. But it seems like Harvard is rejecting the possibility of redemption, and blaming Rush Limbaugh for it. That's so NE Progressive.

Captain Hate

Who could ever forget DR. AMY BISHOP?


Former acting CIA Director Michael Morell resigned his non-resident Senior Fellow position at Harvard on Thursday in protest of convicted military leaker Chelsea Manning joining the Kennedy School's Institute of Politics.


Remeber how Rep. Scalise had tha post op infection and had to have more surgery??

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/09/13/official-trauma-hospital-dc-powerbrokers-cuts-costs-amid-sewage-leaks-safety-problems/608083001/Sewage that leaks down the walls and on the operating room floors is among the many problems at the go-to hospital for Congress and the White House, according to interviews and documents obtained by USA TODAY.

The D.C. health department is now investigating the leaks at MedStar Washington Hospital Center only after the department received a complaint, not because it was alerted by the hospital. The problems included the room in which Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise had his last surgery after being shot at a congressional baseball practice in June.

Twenty years for murdering her child? Why only twenty years?

As far as redemption goes, I am all for murderers dedicating their lives to atonement. That doesn't mean they get out of jail or get out of the electric chair.


On Jan. 24, 2017, Becerra vacated his congressional seat to become California's attorney general. "He wanted to wipe his server, and we [a 'senior official'] brought to his attention it was under investigation. The light-off was we asked for an image of the server, and they deliberately turned over a fake server," the senior official said.

What I want to know is who is "They"? Is it Bacerra or is it Awan Imran, or somebody else? Sadly tho, if there aren't any consequences forthcoming I suppose it doesn't make a damn bit of difference who "They" are.

I find it perplexing that we already have some DOJ IG looking into Steve Mnuchin's supposed unwarranted request for some Government plane to fly him up to see the Eclipse, and Ron Widen's already mouthing off about it, yet for massive corruption like this we apparently don't even have Barney Fife on the case. We need to nip this in the bud.

The light pole guys must have thought it was all copper. Looks like they were in the Big House many years.


Murderers at Harvard? lots of Kennedy types went through there.


Medstar Hospital... owned by SEIU?



She's a better addition than Chelsea Manning.

Tom Maguire

Tom Collins on the last thread raises the key issue:

I believe if the [Indians] win tonight, they set the record for consecutive wins in Major League Baseball. I believe the New York Baseball Giants' 26 game streak without a loss was punctuated by a tie.

Yes, but... its complicated. The gist - baseball does not have ties if fixable. That game was erased and replayed the next day, with a Giants victory.

When that happens today (as in 2005, 2016) players stats still count.

A tie was never an acceptable result of a baseball game," explained Steve Hirdt, executive vice president at the Elias Sports Bureau, Major League Baseball's official record keeper. "If one happened because of darkness or rain or some certain circumstance, the game was played over.

"Sports fans are used to the nuance in hockey and football of the difference between a winning streak and an unbeaten streak or consecutive games streak without a loss. Baseball has never had those two different records. They would replay the game until a legitimate won or loss result was achieved."

That said, there are rare late-season ties that aren't re-played (eg., 2016 Cubs-Pirates) because they don't affect the standings. The Reds-Astros June 30 2005 tie was re-played the next day. Player stats from the tie game do count.

Ralph L

Why only twenty years?
Someone at Althouse says it was mandatory parole on a 50 year sentence in Indiana. Anyone verify?


Tom Maguire, do you figure Rodham puts on her ORANGE TELETUBBIE MOO MOO or is it MAO MAO outfit, as she eats TRUMP sized hand fulls of GOLDFISH right out of the 2lb box???

Milwaukee Brewers trail Chicago Cubs by 2 and a half games.
This weekends series VS the Miami Marlins has been reversed to MILWAUKEE HOSTING.
So in it's infinite FAIRNESS and WISDOM, MLB has limited the ATTENDANCE in MILWAUKEE to 10,000 on Friday, and 23,000 for Saturday and Sunday, because the games are in Milwaukee.
Does Roger Goodell work for MLB too???
Only the 1st of Miller Parks 4 decks will be used.
AND, They are closing the roof and heating the STADIUM to 100 degrees and 90% humidity!!!!!

Ughh, Anonamom, though I did think it cool that they just discovered that bacteria in Zero-G aboard the International Space Station can apparently shift their shapes to better survive: 'Shape-shifting' bacteria spotted on International Space Station

Bacterial cells treated with a common antibiotic have been spotted changing shape to survive while aboard the International Space Station...

The "clever shape-shifting" was detected in bacteria being experimented on in the near-weightlessness of space, and is believed to help the bacteria survive.

An experiment on the common E coli bacteria subjected it to different concentrations of the antibiotic gentamicin sulfate, a drug which kills the bug on Earth.

However, in comparison to a control group on Earth, the space bacteria showed a 13-fold increase in cell numbers and a 73% reduction in cell column size.

Isn't life amazing?

In other fascinating stuff, apparently we just learned via this discovery that the earliest use of the numeral 0 appears a few hundred years earlier than previously believed. The origin of zero: First evidence of the symbol is discovered in the Indian Bakhshali manuscript dating back to the 3rd century

The linked story says they thought Zero didn't appear until the 900's but Amir Aczel 2 years back wrote a book about having discovered the number 0 on a carved Stella near Cambodia from the 600's so you can't even trust this story to get it right. Oh well:(

Here's Amir Achel's earlier "zero" stella to prove I'm not crazy, and you can see that it very closely matches the depiction of "zero" in the newly uncovered Indian manuscripts from the 300's.


That's it. I'm swearing off Goldfish for good!! 😎


ZERO first appeared July 27, 2004, at the Democrat Convention.

Regardless of the merits of admitting her given her criminal past, she lied on her application. That's grounds for rejection right there--academic dishonesty. Even the future Lion of the Senate couldn't get into Harvard Law after cheating.

Post-surgery Will update from his dad--

Will seems to be doing fairly well so far except for some bleeding issues, which were expected. He is still in the OR and will be there until his bleeding decreases.

He also needs to have a HD catheter placed to allow for dialysis now.

The heart surgeon told us Will was one of his more difficult cases, if not the most difficult he has done.

That's is what we know as of now...

House voted to make gang membership deportable offense. Recent local arrest of MS13 members shows need for action.

This is my rep I had before I moved. GOP fairly conservative, and one of 2 running in the senate primary.



You have a point--Teddy's rejection was probably 60+ years ago, when Harvard still had a shred of integrity.

Raw sewage leaking into hospital surgery facilities---- we've achieved 3rd world status.

And the Gummint isn't running the whole show yet.


Since returning home from the hospital we've been cleaning every surface in the house in an effort to sterilize and reduce the odds of getting any kind of blood infection going forward.

There's only so much one can do but the home front is where we can be most vulnerable due to the number of hours of daily exposure.

I'm not in danger of becoming a germophobe fanatic---- but I'm doing a lot to reduce the chances of infection.

Here's a good tip for Road Warriors who travel and then tend to come down with something upon returning home after flying and staying in hotels-----

The dirtiest culprit on that trip is the HOTEL TV REMOTE CONTROL. Solution: take an extra sandwich sized zip lock bag and toss the remote into it. Do not touch the remote!

Also, do not drink out of glassware in the hotel room until you've soaped it, scrubbed it and rinsed it with blazing hot water.

The help seldom runs the glassware through a sanitary dishwashing cycle. There's no time. What they do is use pump spray surface cleaner that leaves a nasty chem residue on the glass and doesn't disinfect the vessel near as much as it needs. Even in the "best" hotels.

So what does Pelosi Galore have to say about this?



The stories at 3:51 and 4:28 can't possibly be true. This morning I heard that Trump gave the Dems everything they wanted.


Howie Carr just said that he doesn't think the Wall will ever be built.

I think enough of the Wall will be cosmetically built to allow Trump to say the Wall is being built while allowing enough openings for illegals to enter to satisfy the Uni-Party, the Dems, the Media, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Pope.

Hot email from Pres The Donald!
OK, just a fund raising letter. Still, pretty quick turnaround I'd say.

"There’s been a lot of noise today and a lot of rumors.

Let me set the record straight in the simplest language possible…


Apparently, liberals in Congress and the mainstream media need one more reminder that building the wall is non-negotiable."


Amash appears to be the only republican that voted against the Gang Banger Act.

He is an odd duck.

Other than a handful of dems that voted for it, this was pretty much a partyline gig.

On to the Senate. Will Mitch be having any dinners with the successful half of the uniparty?


Howie is asking for the US to implement the same entry restrictions to America that the Mexicans impose on American citizens entering their country.

Old Lurker

Maybe the noise and the rumors were caused by poor message control from the WH and perhaps Trump himself (if those Wash Times words were really what he said)?

Maybe it was all trail balloon to see how we would react?

Wasted my day, that's for sure.


Gowd-mouth was on my rader for a long time. I took some heat for calling him a soapboxing stooge.


Incarcerated researchers, shirley



Maybe the media/Dems lied and thought, once again, Trump wouldn't fight back against their misrepresentations.


I'm about ready to go listen to the Beatles White Album to see if Charlie Manson was on to something.


Will keep praying for him
Your statement about President Trump's ability to succeed and how it is irrelevant to you tells me all I need to know.


Now that's possibly the weakest excuse possible, now one recalls there was a UAE Prince at bin Laden's falconry camp pre 9/11. I don't know what to thinl.


Still like Gowdy and Ryan
Nyah Nyah. Nyah...

Of course, that was true of the Beatles as well...

Medstar is where Seth Rich died.

FWIW, the rumor is that the ambulance guys were surprised to hear later that he didn't make it. Apparently - again, this is the rumor - his injuries didn't look that serious.

I don't want Trump to make this country worse. If he's effective at getting what he appears to want, he likely will.

Look at this as the flip side of Rush not wanting Obama to succeed. And draw your conclusions accordingly. I take politics seriously, but I also admire and am interested practitioners of the art of politics, whose policies make me cringe.


Oh noes, Drumbledumpf is betraying hiz base!!! And up go the lighters to ignite the hair.

Brilliant, Porch. Brava.

Captain Hate

Oh c'mon Porch, that story's been thoroughly scrutinized by the MFM. NPR's Morning Sedition devoted a complete week to it. Charlie Rose was more confrontational with the gumshoes working round the clock on it than with Bannon.

The Gipper Lives

They keep telling how "elite" they are...and proving the opposite. At any rate, they should do it on their own dime for a change.

For example, Treason at Harvard, Then and Now:

Then... "This act was done deliberately, because the traitor, like Benedict Arnold, loved money better than he did principle, friends, honor and his country, all combined."--John F. Kennedy, Profiles in Courage, 1957

...and Now: "The John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University has named convicted felon and transgender activist Chelsea Manning as a visiting fellow at its Institute of Politics for the 2017-18 academic year."--The Free Beacon, 2017

In sixty years, Democrats have gone from condemning treason to celebrating it, recruiting for it and practicing it openly. Hell, it's all but mandatory. I'm glad JFK didn't have to see what they are perpetrating in his name. The Japanese once sliced his PT boat in half. Today, Democrats do the job for free.

The post-Obama/Clinton Democrat leadership of today are largely either traitors, criminals, grifters, perverts, child molesters, baby-killers, cannibals, extremists, communists, Islamist sympathizers, race hustlers, Deep State seditionists or anti-American globalists, or some combination thereof.

What a sorry, disgusting collection of miscreants.

Jack is Back!(On his iPhone)

Back in the 90's I attended a Infrastructure Conference at the Plaza Hotel and they had Trump as the Key Noter. Could be wrong but this was during his Marla Maple period and a fellow attendee who worked for the Trump Orginization confided that DJT was a germaphobe and didn't even like to shake hands. I don't see that now with all the personal interaction on his trips.


Good tip but according to CondecNast Travel magazine it's the hotel bath tub that is the most dangerous for germs. Ugh!

Have egg



In her new book, Hillary Clinton says many political reporters "can't bear to face their own role in helping elect Trump, from providing him free airtime to giving my emails three times more coverage than all the issues affecting people's lives combined."

She believes the media playing field was tipped in Donald Trump's favor during the campaign.

And she thinks there should be more liberal-leaning shows and publications to counteract a right-wing media apparatus that she calls "propaganda."

This woman is clinically insane.

From Capt Hate's New Republic link above, titled "Hillary Clinton’s Legacy Is Huge and Lasting."

Far from being a historical footnote, she's a pathbreaking pioneer...These dismissive judgments (against Hillary) aren’t just wrong, but betray a fundamentally flawed view of what’s important in politics.

This insane column jibes with my point about why it is essential to have Hillary's missing 33,000 E-Mails published. As the years ahead soften our current view of Hillary from repulsive conniving evil shrew to the reincarnation of Saint Eleanor Roosevelt, we will grow to appreciate how privileged we happy few were to be alive during her blessed scene upon this mortal stage, and with that in mind nothing is more important than learning all we can about her wonderfulness. This why we need her 33,000 mundane scribbles and innocuous tweets pawed thru like Indian peasants gleefully pawing thru Monkey turds looking for treasured coffee beans excreted tangy and whole from the digestive tracts of such venerated primates. Only by this method will we get to know the deeper side of Hillary that posterity demands we preserve for future generations.

Somewhere in the last few days I read a story about the Canadian health care system which included a story about someone waiting 13 months for a kidney stone. Was it here? Anyone else see it?


Tried staying away from the predictably teary-eyed talk shows but I failed. Just turned on the radio in prep for Larry Elder's sensible show and caught a few minutes of Fair-weather Fanitty's belly aching.

My best guess is he thinks he has a shot at tickling Ann Goulter's Adams Apple from inside her throat.

What a bunch of wimps.



Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations. The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

The secret server was connected to the House Democratic Caucus, an organization chaired by then-Rep. Xavier Becerra. Police informed Becerra that the server was the subject of an investigation and requested a copy of it. Authorities considered the false image they received to be interference in a criminal investigation, the senior official said.

TK - Just don't badmouth Larry Elder, the son I wish I'd had.

James D.

this case gets into the question that if a person serves their time, are they then rehabilitated and eligible to be evaluated solely on the basis of their work

Putting this specific case aside, that is a difficult question. In a truly free society, it ought to be up to individual employers whether they're willing to hire someone who committed whatever crime is at issue, regardless of what the state parole board says regarding their rehabilitation.

And that would totally depend both on the crime, and on how that crime related to the employer's business. I wouldn't expect MADD to hire somebody who killed a carload of kids while driving drunk, no matter how remorseful they were, or what a model prisoner they'd been, for example.


I love his show, Frau. The local station cuts off his last hour in favor of a one hour rerun of The Jay Sekulow Shamwow Screamers.

It is very irritating.
