Will be making a decision soon on the appointment of new Chief Economic Advisor. Many people wanting the job - will choose wisely!
This is a repeat from the last thread. I wanted to make sure people saw it.

Robin, eff 'em all


I thought that was a stupendous interview too. Wasn’t it you who suggested Teri O’Brien’s podcast? I’ve listened to a bunch of them. She’s a wonderful interviewer and has a great radio voice.

Jim Eagle

Off to bed. Big day tomorrow. Suppossed to be a big snow storm but I think it will be big wind and rain. We'll see.

I think Dave, Rocco and others in the Boston area will get hit with snow.


We're supposed to get about a foot here in Manhattan.

Besides Cynthia Nixon, I read somewhere that one of the hot lady DAs from L&O was going to run for something in NY also. Ridiculous.


Oh, and not Angie Harmon, who I believe is conservative. I think it was Diane Neal, the redhead.


If America survives the Trump fiasco .... I think it will be the final end of the boomer-class on any control whatsoever of the country.

good riddance to the most corrupt, selfish, worthless generation ever to live -- who gave us Trump.

"The President whispered back "I am the storm.".

And then the deep state screamed back "YOU'RE WHAT?SORRY.....WE CAN'T HEAR YOU MISTER PRESIDENT.CAN YOU SPEAK UP?"

And then the President whispered back "I said I am the storm".

And then the Deep state screamed even louder "NO,DIDN'T GET IT THAT TIME EITHER".

Evidence mounts that the real problem isn’t the Russians It’s the corrupt & resolutely stupid leadership of our own elites. That’s why Trump won. It’s why the EU is collapsing. Just this weekend in Italy the ruling party was crushed while anti-establishment candidates won big.


Exactly they want to pretend real concerns about economic imbalances and immigration negative feedback can be denied.

Talked to teacher sister tonight and she has been on a high-fiber, low fat diet for her cholesterol for 6 weeks. She's lost 5 pounds but her cholesterol is still up.

I told her she needs to look at alternative diets like high protein low carb diets. Do you have any good sites she could check out?


Why do we even need national economic council chief, wasnt this just a place to stash bob Rubin till he could ne nominated for treasury secretary?


Well that's unfortunate:

The @RealDonaldTrump administration is absolutely right to go after lawless politicians in California for their dangerous sanctuary city policies! We must stand for the rule of law. We can't allow liberals to put illegal immigrants ahead of the safety of Americans!


My former representative before I moved, and now primary candidate for the Senate. I will be voting for him.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Everyone is concentrating on Hillary's actions as Secretary of State, but Kerry has his own actions which are iffy and should also be investigated.

I would like to see him perp walked, as I said up thread.

Lois Dobb's plays a clip of Trey Gowdy and Goodlatte joining the call for a Special Counsel to go after the obvious criminality of the FBI and the DOJ in the Dossier affair, then turns to his guest from Judicial Watch, Chris Farrell, for comments:

Dobbs:...Lets begin with your Lawsuit seeking Bruce and Nelly Ohr's records to find out the relationship with the discredited...Steele Dossier and of course GPS/Fusion's relationship to all of it.

Farrell: Well the American Public is owed the communications, the records, the messages, the texts, between Ohr, who was the number 4 guy at the DOJ, the same man who served as the conduit for all the phony Dossier/Fusion?GPS/ Christopher Steele nonsense. He was the 'go to" guy, to funnell that information to the Justice Department, and was the personal contact of Steele. And of course his wife Nelly Ohr, was working at FUSION/GPS, as an employee there. Ohr is the very nexus of all this information flow, and this peddling of up phonied up dirty information, so we need to see who he was communicating with and what he was communicating.

Dobbs:...It seems too me the FBI and DOJ would want to have those answers and that information itself, because it seems highly inappropriate on it's face, that's highly irregular conduct...highly inappropriate...there is no sign they are going to expedite a response to your Lawsuit. How long do you expect it to take to get resolution?

Farrell: We filed those requests in early and mid December. We sued yesterday. And we get before a Judge in the next couple of weeks. There'll be a scheduling conference. I would guess... probably within 60 days...They'll start producing them within 60 days... I am sure they'll start crying "woe is me " and have a hundred reasons why they can't do it in an expeditious manner.


PBS fundraising week for us Idahonians. Great documentary on saving elephants in S. Africa. I might have teared up a bit. But, hey, isn’t that the desired end. I still didn’t pledge...

The other PBS channel was an English boys choir—angels, as they were billed and costumed replete with lipstick (hey, don’t blame me, the camera close-ups could not be more revealing)—that was quite moving. Hollywood and NAMBLA pervs were doubtlessly spanking it.

Killfile working overtime today. I love that app.

I've dealt with some really nice SSA people also. They seem to be oriented toward problem solving.

They make you sign into a machine that basically asks who you are and what you want to talk about. When your number comes up they have your file already on their computer.


From Narciso's 10:07 link: "Harvey Weinstein's lawyer said Saturday a woman having sex with a Hollywood producer to advance her career is "not rape", in a British newspaper interview on the eve of the Oscars."

It reminds me of the short TinselTown bio's I read of the 2 Femme Fatale's on last nights 1962 Perry Mason Episode: "The Case of the Double-Entry Mind."

Femme Fatale 1:
...Playboy’s "Playmate of the Month---Miss November 1958"
...meets Hugh Hefner at a cocktail party in Los Angeles...etc

Femme Fatale 2: (early 1950's) ...is chased by a Hungarian director around his office with a vibrator. He's shouting "Oy! Oy! Oy!"..
-[email protected] director at Paramount invites her to his office and
[redacted} into her hand. She ends up working with him....

[email protected] that she may have had an affair with producer William Alland...

---1953...necks with Edward G. Robinson, the best kisser in Hollywood, behind the scenes...

I'm thinking Harvey Weinstein may have an argument from precedence, especially if he has Perry Mason as his Defense Attorney!

You know I really don't understand a lot of these requests for e-mails. I mean if you're in government or the financial industry they archive these things.

I couldn't reply to such a subpoena, I regularly delete sent and received e-mails so the program opens/runs faster.

I once had a trader complaining about his computer being slow. I was stymied so I called one of the best IT techs to come down and look at it. We talked a little bit about the symptoms and the first thing he looked at was Microsoft Outlook. The user had thousands and thousands of inbound and outbound e-mails that took the program forever to open and clogged his hard drive with all the e-mail crap.

He had never deleted anything. The tech knew some way to delete any e-mail more than a month old, and with agreement from the trader, he did so. The tech told him to pay more attention to deleting e-mails he didn't need anymore.

Then he de-fragged the hard drive to reclaim all that used space. The PC ran like a champ after that.

The PC tech said this was not unusual and that I should regularly delete my own e-mail. I've followed that dictum ever since.

Notes the passing of composer Harvey Schmid who wrote the score of the "Fantasticks". The longest lasting "off-Broadway" production ever.

My interest in this is that I was a childhood friend of Victor Noto, the nephew, of Lore Noto, the producer of the play. Victor's father was a regular at the Bergen County Playhouse, an amateur mainstay here abouts.

In the way of all things childhood, I lost touch with Victor, but I believe he went on to acting.


Here's tomorrow's Media "Feeding Frenzy:"

Stormy Daniels sues Trump, says ‘hush agreement’ invalid because he never signed

"Stormy" claims they had an intimate relationship that lasted from summer 2006 "well into the year 2007."

Here's the gist of the Lawsuit: ...In the lawsuit, Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels) alleges that in January 2018, Cohen (Trump's Lawyer) , "concerned the truth would be disclosed ... through intimidation and coercive tactics, forced Ms. Clifford (Stormy) into signing a false statement wherein she stated that reports of her relationship with Mr. Trump were false."

I'm trying to put my hand on what he saw in her.

On the low carb diet front, my cholesterol and triglicerides just came back as "normal." The ratio of LDL to HDL is still off, but improved. (Zinc supplements? I was way low on zinc and that is the one change this time).

Net, I switched from the low fat diet in the fall, and the numbers got better, then got better again. It now seems normal to go to the grocery store and get nothing but produce and meats. Beer I get at the beer store, better selection ;)
