TM should have mentioned that both the presidents of China and Viet Nam have made public statements that they support the denuclearizaton of NoKo.

Operation Magnanimous Panda (H/T Sundance) proceeding as planned. To be followed by a "Marshall Plan" for NoKo. Meanwhile KSA is on anti corruption campaign and na Israel Palestine peace deal is in the works.


Not to worry about hurt feewings; the Asians made it more than clear how much they like and respect President Trump.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Yes, much better to ignore the fat little tub of shit's insults and take the dignified "here is 10 billion dollars if you promise to stop making nuclear bombs" brilliant path that costs us 10 billion dollars, produces a nuclear armed North Korea AND lets the little bastard and his little bastard ancestors insult and play for a fool every preceding president and by extension the US.

Clarice Feldman

Fun--T M.


"reckless remarks by an old lunatic"
Because NK official pronouncements are always measured and judiciously chosen. Sounds like Pres Trump is speaking back to them in language they understand.

Well at least Trump didn't repeat what is well known in North Korea. Little Kim's girl friends all call him short round.

If Little Kim should live that long (and he might) he'll be a disgusting old man deflowering 12 year old virgins, just like Chairman Mao did in his dotage.

Another account which I can no longer recall is that Hillary was frustrated that the dossier was not getting enough attention, directed Steele to get it out to reporters and then the FBI.

There was this - http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/10/hillary-claims-didnt-know-dossier-posted-8-tweets-related-dossier-election/

Whether she had a phone in her room doesn’t seem very "key".
It's not a very credible story but that's not why it isn't.


Joan, late to the congratulations, but that's a very arresting title and book cover image!

MM, I thought the SNL skit was in fact pretty funny--plainly the only person who's come out of the cauldron of the last year okay by the show's lights is Donna Brazile.


Whether she had a phone in her room doesn’t seem very "key"

Maybe the key element is that her mom is skeptical of the story too.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

This didn't seem as significant in October of 2015:



Argentinian President Claims Former Obama Official Asked The Country To Provide Iran With Nuclear Fuel


Several posters are tying this into Uranium One on Twitter.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Maybe the key element is that her mom is skeptical of the story too.--

I didn't get that impression either.
The only part she seemed skeptical about is phone location.
Now, she has no clue as to whether the rest of it is true because she wasn't there, if there ever even was a there there, nor does she know when the there was if there was one.


"nor does she know when the there was"

Could be she didn't have a phone when she was 14 but did when she was 17.


I think Roy Moore will prove his innocence.
As to support from the Republicans , I don’t see that happening.
The establishment wanted Strange so no wonder that they pulled funds from Moore.
I think Roy Moore can win without them and then be beholden to no one.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Very possibly, boris.
If something did occur it seems unlikely, given the other gals in the story, it happened when she was underage.
I suspect that if anything happened between them she is either intentionally or forgetfully conflating their meeting and when anything occurred.


What a wonderful cover and intriguing book.
I am so happy for you!


KK and Momto2:
We need a health update.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

From memorandum;

After a Disciplined Week in Asia, Trump Unloads on Critics

You, see? A "disciplined" Republican absorbs media and Dem lies and keeps his mouth shut like a good little boy.
An undisciplined one kicks the liars back in the teeth twice as hard.
Kinds makes you wonder if the progs mean self disciplined or compliant GOPes who learn to accept helpful and concerned prog administered discipline.
OK, we don't really have to wonder what they mean, do we?

Miss Marple the Deplorable


This is a new type of scam, if you ask me.


Tweet softly and carry a big shtick.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ignatz, sbw,

Trump's tweet inspired lots of hand-wrining from the libs and GOPe.

They miss the entire point. He is backed up by China, Japan, South Korea and possibly Russia (due to his chat with Vlad in Asia).

In Asia, this tweet will be viewed as Kim losing face and being brought down to size (in more ways than one).

In addition, I am almost (but not totally) convinced that the "tunnel collapse" was a lot more serious for their nuclear program than is widely publicized.

And last, that tweet was extremely popular with his base, particularly the younger set.

So, you guys are right. They would like him to be compliant like the GOPe, and they should realize that he isn't going to follow their approved MO.


I thought your article today covered all the topics thoroughly and illuminated all of the facts admirably! Thank you for always being a reliable, trustworthy source of information.


Loved that comment of Trump's about the 17 agencies.

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One, Trump said: "They're political hacks. So, you look at it, and then you have Brennan, you have Clapper, and you have Comey. Comey's proven now to be a liar, and he's proven to be a leaker. So, you look at that. And you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with that. Now, you are not going to get into an argument, you are going to start talking about Syria and the Ukraine."


pagar, a bacon, ham and sausage supporter

The source:


" New evidence has now come to light that the Washington Post’s now infamous hit piece on Judge Roy Moore might in fact be a complete fabrication, or at least a carefully planned exaggeration of the truth."

"No friend to Moore or Trump for that matter, its now come to light that McConnell’s people had been spreading these allegations out long before the Washington Post story, hoping to hurt Moore’s election chances."


My thoughts on the phone in the bedroom comment -

I find it significant because she was reportedly sneaking out to see Moore as a result of these surreptitious phone calls. When I was growing up with one wall phone in the kitchen, I could not possibly have made secret plans to meet a man without my parents' knowledge.

I still remember getting my first phone in my room - a "princess phone" on my 16th birthday. It was not a common thing in those days to have a phone in every room so that is probably why the mom remembers it.


Thanks clatice i wasnt aware of fusions part
In mirtchev's defamation only the part about the emirate Prince re fusions predecessor


This rings true because it makes sense.
I hope Moore wins big in his lawsuit against the Washington Post.


Clarice - wonderful "Pieces" this morning! I love the touch of ending with the obituary. The contrast is so stark and what a great last sentence: "It’s good to remember that once upon a time in a country called the USA we had people with enough courage and wit to know how to do the right thing.

Thank you!


I like how Trump does his DEFCON-omedy* Jam over being called "old" and gives being called a "lunatic" a pass.

*The pussies at Paterico think you should cower to bullies that have nukes.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

The "artist" in MM's 11:41 is none other than Marina Abramovitch of Spirit Cooking infamy.
She didn't actually keep the the 2 mil apparently but was shocked to learn her plans which cost the 2 mil to evaluate were going to be a bit more expensive than the 2 mil.
Immoral and stupid is no way to go through life, Marina.


This is great news.

Thnx, Maryrose--I think it perfectly clear from Simpson's role in slandering Mirtchev with forged documents and fabrications--brought to Holder's attention that DoJ and FBI knew he was totally unreliable.

As I said, there is money in being a victim. I am certain Hollywood is full of predators and assorted creepy men. I am also certain that Hollywood attracts people who have switched from allowing this behavior in order to get ahead to capitalizing on being a victim in order to get publicity.

I have YEARS of suffering through Ashley Judd's annoyances while she was married to one of the 500 drivers. If I had had to bet, I would have placed money on this book coming out. She will be on TV for MONTHS with her book tour, hitting everyone from Oprah to The View.

And I predict right now, she will blame President Trump for "enabling" the culture in Hollywood.


I, for one, found Trump’s NORK tweet funny. Treating Rocket Man as a Team America super villain, rather than as a serious person makes sense, if you are sure Kim will do nothing. It’s a “all your nukes have really bought you nothing, not even dignity” approach, and while it’s not in the diplomacy handbook, it is in the Hollywood/ Real Estate negotiators handbook. (And maybe even in Art of the Deal)

Nothing has worked with North Korea. Not really. Diplomatic solutions require constant international monitoring, which often falls apart after a few years. So maybe this does. The risk always is the NORKs lashing out in a panic. But I don’t think they want to be destroyed, and they aren’t as crackers as they wish to appear.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


THANKS for reminding us who she was! I knew that name and she looked familiar, but I couldn't place it so just posted the story.

Too many names in all of these scandals, I need charts and spreadsheets or something!


The truth can only stay hidden for so long.


maryrose - thank you for checking on me. I finally have an appointment tomorrow with the vascular specialist to make sure my artery is healed.
Hopefully, it will alleviate my alarm at every strange or quirky feeling.

I worked full-time this week for the first time.On Thursday, I came home, went straight to bed, and slept for 14 hours! So, I assume I am still not 100% but getting there.

I also drove for the first time and I am working through my fears. That will probably take longer than my physical healing but I refuse to let it ground me.


I remember that Robert littell novel back in the early is where the cia provoked a chain reaction at an Iranian nuclear facility by introducing nuclear material which caused a cascade reaction, disguised as an earthquake.

I am no Moore fan, but I am curious how WaPo found its way to this story, and why there is only one teenager molested.

Think I am in same place as Powerline. Moore thanked heaven for little girls, but the proof he acted is lacking.


Well the pattern still obtains, compare that with how jay Solomon was treatedm

Israeli firm apologizes for working with Weinstein. At least there is confirmation of this portion of the story.

matt, deplore me if you must

She stood up in front of 100,000 other crazy people and told the world that she is a vagina and a naaaasty woman. What new revelations could she possibly have?

She did nasty stuff with nasty people. Wouldn't that immediately disqualify her testimony in a court of law?

On another note, Idiocracy was on last night and I really think the best candidate for the Democratic Party nomination is Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.

As the script voiceover said:

"The years passed, mankind became stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes the genetic engineering would correct this trend in evolution, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections. "

Sorry to be late for Veterans Day with this:

In 1916, during the height of World Word War I, the British Army who like the police initially rejected the idea, came to realize the need for these unique canines. The Army needed messenger dogs that could quickly deliver correspondence to the front from the trenches. Richardson initially provided two Airedales (Wolf & Prince) for use as message carriers, both of which quickly proved their value, and successive Airedales were given additional duties such as guard dogs, and locating wounded.

Richardson, in a report evaluating the effectiveness of messenger dogs during the war:

“During a very heavy bombardment by the enemy the casualties among the runners, especially when they have to cross much open country exposed to snipers, machine gun fire, or a heavy barrage, are heavy, and sometimes none succeed in getting through. A runner has sometimes taken two or three hours to do a journey from the trenches, which a dog has done in half an hour or less.”

The most famous of the Airedale war dogs was Jack, a dog that embodied loyalty, courage and devotion by giving his life to deliver a message from the trenches to the front that saved an entire British battalion of the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment (The Sherwood Foresters) from being annihilated by the enemy.
In the British War Museum there sits a small wooden memorial:

“To the memory of Airedale Jack, a hero of the Great War"

"Not just a dog but a hero who in 1918 saved a whole British battalion from certain annihilation by the enemy. Airedale Jack was sent over to France as a messenger and guard. There was a big push on, and he was taken by the Sherwood Foresters to an advance post. The battle raged, and things went badly against the Foresters. The enemy sent across a terrific barrage, cutting off every line of communication with headquarters, four miles behind the lines. It was impossible for any man to creep through the walls of death that surrounded them and certain destruction of the the entire battalion was inevitable unless reinforcements could be secured from headquarters. But there was just one chance - Airedale Jack. Lieutenant Hunter slipped the vital message into the leather pouch attached to the dog's collar. A pat on the head and then simply: 'Good-bye Jack . . . Go back, boy'. The battalion watched Jack slip quietly away, keeping close to the ground and taking advantage of whatever cover there was, as he had been trained to do. The bombardment continued, and the shells fell all around him. A piece of shrapnel smashed the dog's lower jaw . . . but he carried on. Another missile tore open his tough, black and tan coat from shoulder to haunch - but on he went, slipping from shell-crater to trench. With his forepaw shattered, Jack had to drag his wounded body along the ground for the last three kilometres. There was the glaze of death in his eyes when he reached headquarters - but he had done a hero's work and saved the battalion. “

Jack was presented with a posthumous Victoria Cross; the highest military decoration awarded for valor in the face of the enemy to members of the armed forces of the Britain.

A Story About Gamblers, Gun Runners, and the City of Sin


When there is no explanation for something like that Las Vegas massacre, people start doing their own digging.

I am no certain all of this fits, but it does make you wonder about a lot of things that haven't been explained.


"Argentinian President Claims Former Obama Official Asked The Country To Provide Iran With Nuclear Fuel"

For the life of me, I can't come up with any explanation for Obama's Iran actions other than a desire for Holocaust-2 via the nuking of Israel. And that seems like an off kilter priority in many, many ways.
Am I missing something?

Captain Hate

No, Jim, that's exactly it; a mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv was the endgame and anybody saying otherwise is a gutless liar.


Appalled: "I, for one, found Trump’s NORK tweet funny"

On balance, I did too. But you could argue that it wasn't dignified or Presidential. I'm won over by the thought that appeasement policies by multiple Dem and GOPe Admins have been found wanting.
Taunting (and as noted above, reacting to "old" NOT "lunatic"), feels like a reasonable policy element. Along with lining up allies and regional powers in the event of an opportunity to take action.

MM-That SNL skit was hysterical-I laughed out loud at the Donna Brazille character - Very funny. Thx for sharing.


Made the mistake of opening up the dead tree edition of the Slimes today. There is an incredibly sophomoric Editorial about Trump and the Constitution. I hope someone with more patience than me Fisks it good.

Brilliant story of valor and loyalty. Dogs love humans so much, they have been proven to suffer melancholy and depression when not around us. Jack was as much a hero and worthy of a King's Cross as any human.

Give Teddy a pat on the head for me this Veteran's Day Sunday.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

Thanks for sharing the story about the heroic Airedale, Jack.

My dog Maggie is getting old and I fear in the next year or two she will leave me. I find as I have gotten older I have a greater appreciation for the loyalty of dogs.

Beasts of England

This morning's paper had a story about Moore's accuser working for Hillary's campaign, pictures of her with Biden and Clinton, and that she had FB posts promoting Moore's dem rival. There's no there, there.

They also ran a story about a member of our state's GOP executive committee comparing Moore to the story of Joseph and Mary, invoking the rarely-used 'G-d liked 'em on the young side, too' defense. Only in Alabama, peeps... :)

No NFL for me today. 5th week.

Instead watching a replay of the Denmark v. Ireland World Cup qualifier.

Demark has a player named Delaney and Ireland has a black goal keeper named Rudolph and two other black players while Denmark has one. All this while the Poles are having their own version of being called fascists because 60K nationalistic christians marched to support a Polish identity.

This is what the left's "indentity politics" has led to.

Jeb-a-reeno reminds me of the hapless Benny Hill plumber who arrives to save the buxom babe in distress over her flooding kitchen.

the sink is overflowing as the faucet rages. Water everywhere. Plumber is so overwhelmed by the mamz on display he fails to shut off the faucet worsening madamoiselle's plight.

I make a fresh half-gallon of sun tea for the occasion infused with fresh, homegrown spearmint.

And at 1115 PST I bring up AT and wait for "Pieces" to appear. A hot off the press kind of experience like the old days when we got the Daily Review 20 minutes after the presses stopped 3 miles from our house just west of Hayward where it was published.

Great Pieces this week. I've got 19 new readers for you, conservatives who weren't reading AT (I know. LOL). You've already become an icon and they circulate your Pieces to rather large email lists.

Not surprising. You know that anti-semiticism is rampant in Europe. Most of my Belgian (Flemish) newphews are anti-Israel. Have tried to engage them but they refuse to explain. Mrs. JiB is the opposite.

Also, on MTP today, Chuck Todd said the response from McConnell (about Moore) felt orchestrated, and that said that it was a "pedo smear."

Both of these are NBC shows, which coincidentally was the network that carried "The Apprentice."

Maybe someone got a heads up on something. Or maybe it's just a coincidence.
