Trump threatens tariffs, and then everyone calls him offering deals, essentially "free money" for the U.S.

It's more than a little amusing that our media overlords STILL do not understand this, it's been two years, and my gosh, @ScottAdamsSays even wrote a book on it.

Also, when your name is Turnbull, you have to do whatever you can to avoid getting a Trump nickname. Looks like it was a narrow escape.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clarice,

Thanks!

I have spent a few years following and unfollowing people in order to assemble a reliable news feed.

I did this because I realized (beginning with Andrea Mitchell LYING about something Ronald Reagan said in a press conference back in the 80's) that I could no longer depend on the MSM. Twitter has proved to be a gold mine for me.

I follow an assortment of government officials, conservative sites, a few lefties, and local stuff, with an added assortment of arts, antiques, and pop culture.

If people would take the time to assemble a grouping like this, they wouldn't need to even turn on cable news.

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

Ex, SBW,

I don't have a problem with either of your opinions, but I do think many kids at 18 are hardly adults and that is a parenting problem. Of course one has nothing to do with the other.

But I am very in favor of allowing school personell to carry. I agree the rest is a compromise.

narcisocenfl

Cernovich was actually about Kaufman being a mole, but he kept his reasoning sketchy.

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

Excellent point MM.

We are blessed to be able to tune in MM news.

Per usual, many days late and dollars short. My mother, who grew up in Maryland and South Carolina, said she when she and her friends went to soda fountains (presumably in SC) they ordered "a dope." Hat tip, I suppose, to Coke's cocaine antecedents. She was born in 1923, for historical soda/pop/etc. context.

Captain Hate

Back at AoS I was drawn to Miss Marple because she seemed to have excellent sources for things going on.

narcisocenfl

That mit study didn't consider bezos or Carlos slims fake news, did it?

Catsmeat

I second that, hoyden, about MM news!

I too order "coke" and mean a soft drink (FL upbringing).

The Varsity, rse! My FIL and his brother used to take a trolley there as Emory undergraduates and splurge.

Captain Hate

they ordered "a dope." Hat tip, I suppose, to Coke's cocaine antecedents.

Yes! The old timers who used to come in "the Greek's" in Laurel used to do that.

GUS

I use Lovely Miss M as my twitter feed.
Capn' your Sunday am's were awesome too.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

I am blessed with having taken what was called "Developmental Reading" back in the early 60's.

It was a method of teaching speed reading with comprehension. I ended up reading over 900 words per minute; probably a little bit slower now but I am still pretty fast.

When I look at Twitter I can scan through the tweets and see what is relevant fairly quickly. I then link the ones which I think are pertinent.

I follow everyone from Piers Morgan to 4chan, including most cabinet secretaries, the President and VP, local reps and our senators, Hollywood people, reporters, etc.

Also follow antiques sites, foreign news sources, art links, etc.

Twitter is made for people like me: fast readers with a short attention span!

sbwaters

JAne: I do think many kids at 18 are hardly adults and that is a parenting problem.

Yes it is. A lost generation of parents creating another lost generation of students/parents, and schools and government kicking the can of responsibility down the road.

GUS

Parenting isn't what it used to be.
The FREE LOVE generation, spawned many kids and too little LOVE. It shows, and has manifested itself in a lot of dysfunction.

Is it possible that the mountain can no longer contain the fallout?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

jim nj,

I have seen speculation that the US used the Rods of God on that site.

I have no way of knowing, but that theory is out there.

clarice feldman

I think something happened--what exactly we may never know--but I bet the President does. And the economic squeeze on countries and companies doing business with him has made the country (and Fatso's) continued life even more precarious. Apparently Trump is offering him a security guarantee.

How long will the airport channel survive after this? Place your bets.

Speculation about meetings next weekend at Mar-a-Lago.

Some of it seems BS. Just letting you guys know.

Ralph L

I guess no one picked up my feeble JiNm/torque pun off Clarice's typo. Just as well the metric system didn't catch on here. I will now pound feet.

narcisocenfl

They were showing the odessa file on one of those classic channels, I guess voight reasonably pulled off a German accent as he penetrates the kameraden this secret society of ex as veterans. Of course subsequent research shows the odessa was not as vast an organization and yet had prominent sponsors from Italy to Argentina. Keep in mind at the time this was a fairly well kept secret except to the likes of Frederick forsyth who we now know was mi 6.

The point being peter miller didn't know who to trust outside of his family and a few others anybody he contacted could be in league with his pursuers. We are led to believe that wiesenthal
may have exaggerated some elements in his tale, hence his depiction both in this film and as the readily identifiable yakov Lieberman in boys from brazil

Indeed clarice, reading most of the reporting at the time by talbott, Friedman gunman dickey one never saw that as much as the Reagan administration conducted overt military and covert paramilitary, they did as much propaganda economic manipulations et al even then the accounts are in reviews like sebestyen winik schweitzer

I've thought that Phat Phuq has probably upped the domestic radiation to a very dangerous level by overuse of a single underground test site. Kind of like how the Rooskis dumped nuclear waste willy nilly under the Ural Mountains until one day the infrared scanners on our spy satellite saw a very hot spot.

i just read in our local weekly that our school committee and the high school administration have ok'd students walking out of school next week to support of gun control. i am now going to be forced to attend the next school committee meeting to ask them what other constitutional rights they will allow students to leave school to protest without consequence. idiots.

GUS

Narciso, I guess the PALLET CASH PLANE wasn't available to pick up Levinson in Switzerland.
or
We had no official BANKING relationship with IRAN, so we couldn't make additional deposits.

Mad Jack, my sons JESUIT aka SOCIAL JUSTICE High School did a lot of hand wringing, and came to a REALLY REALLY $13,000 per year heady decision.
Yes, the VIRTUE SIGNALLING "BOYS" can walk out, onto the FENCED IN ATHLETIC PRACTICE FIELD, in FAUX SOLIDARITY. They'll feel really good about themselves, and their newly minted power over the ADULTS.
My son??? He'll show a bit of independent thought.
He plans to do a SIT IN. Actually, he hopes to get 40 winks. Oh, BTW, my boy owns a VINTAGE 12 GUAGE, and is on the VARSITY TRAP SHOOTING TEAM.

narcisocenfl

Heck my old high school is in the news because there was a bit of a 'hazing' incident in the classroom, the teacher put tape on the students mouth, 'oh the huge manatee' @captain

mad jack

well GUS a public school doesnt have the option of picking and choosing what rights they get to favor. i'd like to think that at least one of the few attys on the payroll of our town might have mentioned that fact to the board. oh well. this will be fun going forward.

GUS

Mad Jack, the town attys, are probably garden variety FULL COMMIES. They have been trained over the last 8 years, that THE LAW is irrelevant. Their COMMIE opinions ARE RELEVANT.
It's the ERIC HOLDER effect. Just as Obama IGNORED enforcing laws, using the Police had "discretion" nonsensical argument. Obama has done decades of damage that needs to be reversed and unwound.

jim nj

I'm just spit-balling on the NoKo test site, but we've seen the photos of the mountain showing landslides and depressions.

But what I'm stuck about is - why the sudden change in heart? Are the sanctions biting that hard? I think not enough yet. Pressure from China - likely, but I don't see that to be enough either. Both the above in combination? Some other unknown reason?

And that leads me back to the test site. If that site is now compromised and they don't have a back-up - how long would it take to carve out a new site - years? Is it possible that their atomic R&D is at a standstill?

NoKo says no tests, no launches. I welcome that and the idea that they may be willing to de-nuke.

I just don't understand the timing unless something really big happened in NoKoLand that we're not privy to.

https://www.inquisitr.com/4820026/nasa-twin-study-results-astronaut-scott-kelly-reacted-to-news-of-how-his-dna-changed/

Weird science from NASA, one twin astronaut stays on earth, the other one goes up to the space station on a 342 day mission. He comes back, they analyze his DNA and find changes that are temporary, but final analysis shows a 7% overall change in his DNA. Genetically he is no longer himself!

Another Bob

Cosmic rays damaging that amount of DNA?

That can't be good.

mad jack

jim nj: ive always wondered how nk has even functioned to the extent it has to now. given the apparently real pressure PDT has put on them as compared to the apparently fake pressure and sanctions priovious admins claim to have imposed i think we are starting to see results. we have had smoke blown up our ass from these dc aholes, both dem and gop for decades. i was a pdt sceptic until he won the nomination but his actions have shown me that i was the one with the scales on my eyes.

GUS

Jim nj. So his twin here on earth retained the ORIGINAL DNA.

Which DNA is better.

Mad Jack, God bless you. Donald Trump DOES. Barry Bi-Obama SAYS.

We've seen fantastic 4 right, not the latest film which is unsalvageable but the previous series. We may need to develop superior shielding.

Another Bob

Jim, the NorKs have at least two nuke test sites I know of. Are both unusable? Don't know. I don't think sanctions matter, the people are literally eating dirt as it is.

I think this is either the Chinese acting for their own reasons, or Kim opening a new propaganda front.

If he tries to play games with Trump, I think he'll be unpleasantly surprised.

Mickey Fickey

At the grandsons kindergarten play last night in the high school auditorium, the director started the presentation by thanking the (armed, uniformed) police chief for being present. Very heartfelt applause. He then thanked the (armed, uniformed) patrolman who was present for the last few weeks for rehearsals. More heartfelt applause.
The general feeling of our community is not supportive of the latest walkout fads in the news.

mad jack

GUS: one civil rights lawsuit between the eyes, with the attendant attorneys fees for the plaintiff's counsel should be enough for these town's and their counsel to get "woke" to the consequences of picking favorites when it comes to civil rights. im thinking it might be a nice retirement sideline for me in a few years.

Another Bob

Re. possible reasons the Chinese would curry favor?

Tariffs?

narciso

Possibly after all when we switch to Nevada desert for further nuclear testing, the early 50s

The tacitus link at the express reminds us when they ask for evidence of Jesus life, why would it be so obvious Jerusalem was still a backwater at the beginning of the first century, a remote territory like tattoine, Christian proselytizing was significant but they did not become significant element till the 2nd century.

mad jack

AB: if the chicoms are actually cooperating on nk, which i doubt, it's because the cost benefit isn't there anymore. they may be cutting back in obviously nk support for the moment but the second they think they can get away with it they will prop their mad dog up. trump has their number and his willingness and ability to cut their trade balls off definitely has an effect. whole new game being played. amazing to watch.

Oh, and I'm not holding my breath that Trump-Kim will be the historical, Nobel-winning event some seem to anticipate.
