Of course there is a new thread. I just posted on the old one.

Thnx, though for the new thread. :-)

Speaking of royal twits, knowing that the slogan 'mental health' is getting used to teach buddhist mindfulness training to 7 year olds is infuriating. https://news.sky.com/story/why-focusing-on-childrens-mental-health-means-success-in-later-life-11346749?mc_cid=d95d88798e&mc_eid=e5a76e5a55

That's a lot of meddling in the name of one stupid woman who died because she didn't wear a seat belt.

This is for the unconstitutional protect Mueller bill. I don't know if Grassley is being blackmailed or what but he and the rest of them need to go with that asshole Flake.

Posted by: Captain Hate | April 26, 2018 at 10:34 PM

He's skillfully robbing the Democrats of another hoped-for stunt / lie. The UniParty put something together and previously had Grassley's word that he would support a bipartisan bill.

That's what he did and he kept his word.

Politics 101; McConnell is on record here and will stop it cold. No big deal.

Mark Penn: In typical cases, much of what the prosecutors gathered might be exempt from the rule. But if runaway investigations are going to be corralled, then it will take judges who hold special counsels to the strictest possible standards in all their actions and limit any exemptions because such prosecutors have vast, largely unsupervised and unchecked power along with unlimited budgets.
The best way to end all this is not to fire Mueller and Rosenstein or wait for them to wrap it up but to challenge this entire process in court as irretrievably tainted. If Mueller does not agree to end the investigation in exchange for presidential interrogatories, then it may be time to try to block the whole thing in court, with full discovery into whether its foundation was so corrupted — and the stonewalling actions so blatant — that the doctrine of the fruits of a poisonous tree can be invoked to stop this national distraction

20,000 such documents for a year is a massive version of the same thing and should not be allowed. Put up or shut up within, say, 30 days, or the indictments should die.

OL . . . are you working for the Democrats?

They should be brought out when the administration, in their professional judgment, decides to bring them out. They are rather obviously being held for investigatory purposes. That happens all the time.

What *doesn't* happen all the time is the historic nature of what is being investigated, and what will have to be prosecuted, from actions taken during the past administration.

So, not unreasonable at all IMHO.

I have been to Venice many times, mostly on business since we had done the study on installing a barrage to control the flooding, then doing the pre-construction planning before the government shut it down due to costs and the corruption that attracts:)

Those plans of the Mayor take away a lot of the cultural trails a lot of people use to track the history especially the architecture. I think the hotel and restaurant folks are plenty upset since it will reduce numbers or you'll just get a more dumbed-down crowd. Can you say Japanese?

--Anyone else with littermates see the same behavior?--

Jack - I don't have littermates but I have heard people say not to adopt littermates. One theory is that they will bond so much to one another that they will not be as affectionate with the owner. Also that they will have a pre-determined role in the pack - one will be dominant - which could cause issues. This doesn't make sense to me because once they are in your house one is going to be the alpha dog regardless of their litter.

The longer I'm around dogs I think they are all so different - much like people - so it's hard to make statements like that (don't adopt littermates.)

Do you have crates for them? Sometimes my foster dogs like to take their treats/toys into their crate (with door open) just to get away from the others and enjoy without any issues.

fdcol63, re: Agile / OODA Loop / 4D Chess -- it appears to me you just don't see the political play. Many on this board don't seem to get the political play and this is why I suspect the Democrats have been so politically successful over the years. They much more intuitively see the political play.

It's what Trump meant when he said I'm going to show you how to win.

There's no way in hell 4D Chess is a solo play by Trump. None. It is precisely the opposite of a solo play.

Culture war continues...

Someone posted a photo of kids praying in a Longhorn restaurant before their prom. Posted a short comment "“So impressed with these young people on their prom date at Longhorn.
They all said Grace before eating and were all well behaved.”

Which of course unleashed a firestorm of comments like this:

“So now we are supposed to praise kids for praying to an invisible man in the sky for animals that were slaughtered so they could eat?” one commenter wrote. “Maybe they should be thanking that animal for giving up it's [sic] life so they could eat instead. So tired of Christians pushing their beliefs onto everyone else.”

I think Kanye West's statement following President Trump's successful meeting with Macron, someone he considers a friend and who doesn't agree with him on some issues, is very important for this country.

We have GOT to get over this idea that people have to be 100% in agreement with us. I imagine Kanye West wouldn't agree with me on federal funding for schools, dress codes, and certainly taste in music. However, he does good things in the black community and I don't have to listen to his music or wear his clothing, which apparently a lot of younger people like.

Same with Macron: he stepped up and paid his NATO dues, helped with the Syria strike, and generally showed respect and friendship to our country.

I don't expect him to suddenly drop his concerns about climate change or abandon the EU, of which France is a member.

This is why I got frustrated with the Never Trumpers. Yes, President Trump can be a bit vulgar at times.

And on the other side, we control the House and Senate, possible peace with North Korea, tax cuts, deregulation, good judges, strong military, new respect on the world stage, and no communists appointed to the government.

I think all of that is worth hearing a few vulgarities.

RG,

"There's no way in hell 4D Chess is a solo play by Trump. None. It is precisely the opposite of a solo play."

Exactly! This is precisely why I have always disagreed with the 4D chess analogy, because that scenario implies a lone chess master calling all the shots.

It's precisely why I prefer to think of what's happening as an Agile-inspired TEAM effort, where Trump has surrounded himself with able aides, and together they are running a shotgun offense that's running rings around their opponents and exhausting / confusing them, while achieving real results.

None of this means that I deny or appreciate the gains that Trump is making. And I'm not as impatient as others who have expected immediate results, because I hope that competent people are taking their time to dismantle the Deep State in an efficient, complete, and LEGAL way. I know building legal cases take time, and something as vast as the Deep State is now, which has taken decades to build, will take time to destroy.

But the Trump issue is different from the reasons for my longer term pessimism on the future of the country and the Millennial generation, and why I more often find myself on The Ledge.

It's a shame that you think my view is so disagreeable or a cause for a potential "I-Told-You-So" in the future. But it is what it is.

However, I still look forward to our continued meet-ups and brew sessions, bro!

Please keep this response as part of my testimony, too. LOL

There was something hinky about the involvement of the Chicago Trib, maybe related to the financing of a stadium(?), but I can't remember exactly what it was. Might also have been related to the timing of the Libby (or Blago?) indictment, or maybe not.

(okay, I'm about to do a long rant about soccer and football; scroll on by if needed because this will likely be disagreeable to many of you)

* * *

JiB, I knew you'd go down that soccer is ascendant / football is in a death spiral road. Here's my very, very biased (and necessarily adversarial) take (it just is what it is, I mean no harm but I am passionate about what I say on this topic):

I'm not saying it's going to replace soccer in Europe. I don't give a damn about soccer in Europe. I appreciate the game. I can enjoy watching the game with friends. But it's an inferior game to *this* American eye.

I also don't give a damn about how many American kids are playing soccer. You know who those kids are? They aren't our elite athletes. They never will be. You know why? Because it's a game that penalizes offensive, individual excellence and rewards defensive, group excellence. That ain't us, my friend.

I'll tell you something else. African Americans *hate* the freaking game, and we don't care if Black people from other places love the game. If you don't see this as extremely important, you're not paying attention. We're average Americans and we have no love for that game.

And you know why we have no love for the game? By penalizing offensive, individual excellence you're not only penalizing athletic excellence but you're stifling creativity. And by rewarding defensive, group excellence you're *also* stifling creativity. It's a double-whammy.

I've had this argument with many foreign friends down through the years who just could not understand why the game wasn't more popular in this country.

Real Americans don't give a damn what the world prefers. Real Americans don't give a damn what the world thinks. With respect to sports, the DNA of our country loves -- first -- athletic, individual excellence and spontaneous creativity. It defines us in ways that escapes the comprehension and appreciation of Europeans. It's another manifestation of individualism and liberty.

That said, we *also* love group excellence, but we revere individual excellence. This is our major, generic advantage over Europe and the rest of the world.

So, to hell with soccer. My only argument: football is a threat to them because it is much more accessible to the gambling thirst. Many, many stops and starts allow for itemization of bets, etc., crazy conversations about strategy and what should have been done vs. what was done, etc.

Soccer? Man, it just flows-zzzzzzzzz. But, they love to gamble more than us. So American football will grow, commercially, in Europe in ways soccer will not grow here.

That, and the fact we're entirely unique in all the world. No other nation has 4 major professional sports. None.

Can soccer compete in such a world? I don't think so. And concussions? Women's soccer has as great a problem, right? Men's soccer? The concussion discussion is best seen within the prism of a controlling big government with trial lawyers driving the train and transferring wealth by insinuating themselves into every facet of individual life.

To hell with them . . . play on !!!

More than 70k fans now for virtually every home game and a multi-year wait for season tickets. It really is a sight to behold and healthy for the city to have such a diverse experience.

Here is a cop who remembers something from the 3 years he knew DeAngelo.


Farrel Ward, 75, served on the Exeter Police Department with DeAngelo. Ward called him a "black sheep," saying he was quiet and didn't fit in with other officers.

Ward said it's possible that DeAngelo helped with a search in a killing he's now suspected of committing. Ward doesn't recall DeAngelo directly working on the case but said it's possible he joined the hunt for the killer.

Ward said he thought DeAngelo was overqualified for the small-town job because he graduated from Sacramento State with a degree in criminal justice.

As to littermates, we have two hounds. One was the first out and the other is the runt of 14.

We had issues with their bonding to each other when they were pups. They spent all their time together and so it was natural. Very rowdy animals. But we sent them to doggie boot camp for training and they did very well.

A year or two later we then adopted an Australian the same age and there was hell to pay. He thought he was going to be the alpha and went after the other two. It took a few months and then the occasional snarling match to cool down.

The hounds have each others back, but that's about it. The three of them are a joy most of the time except when an omelette gets stolen off the kitchen counter whole (with no evidence whatsoever, sneaky bastard) or one of them does something scatalogical.

Brits revive death penalty.
But only for children.
https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2018/04/britain-revives-death-penalty-for.html
On August 13, 1964, Britain executed Peter Anthony Allen and Gwynne Owen Evans for the murder of John Alan West. This was supposed to be the last executions by the state in that nation.

But nearly 53 years later, Britain executed Charles Matthew William Gard.

His death was not by hanging. They did not draw and quarter him. The British did something far worse. They starved him to death by denying him medical treatment because the treatment was too expensive.

Charlie was 11 months old.

His death at the hands of government come from the same people who lecture Americans on how we let people die because we don't have socialized medicine -- a lie -- we provide the best care for the poor through Medicaid.

But it doesn't negate him being used as a deceptive tool; a very useful tool.

For our mutual reference, I'm going to post a series of comments (there are 64 total) that lay out what is (for me) the controlling and accurate narrative on what's what with the Trump / Sessions thing. These comments are not mine; they were originally posted on Twitter in November 2017 at this link. Down the road we'll perhaps be able to take a look back and see how close to the truth they came.

Just remember, in many of the best operations certain hands will remain invisible and unacknowledged but it appears by the close of May we should know whether this is largely true or not. Others may have a different take but any of you should feel free to reference this narrative when questioning or critiquing me about this, that or the other in the coming months:

https://twitter.com/drawandstrike/status/926770966226595840

The series is A - G.

[A]

1) This started either before Trump announced his run for President, or soon thereafter. Someone who knew what happened told him.

........[RattlerGator says: *This* means the combined PSYOP / Counter-Intelligence operation ongoing against the Deep State]

2) SOMEONE in the IC, likely military intel, sat Trump down & laid out the entire #UraniumOne bribery scheme.

........[RattlerGator says: General Flynn; remember, my theory is Trump (and his team) had a viable plan to take down these folks whether or not they won the election]

3) How all across the breadth of the Obama Administration people in high offices took massive bribes to facilitate sell of uranium to Russia


4) It involved so many people, it compromised so many agencies, the people who did it counted on it never being exposed or prosecuted.


5) The lengths to which they corrupted our government offices to enrich themselves by selling out our country virtually ENSURED they'd walk.


6) People knew but nobody could talk, the people involved in the scheme were at the HIGHEST levels of the American government.


7) So patriots in our gov't had their hands tied. There was nothing they could do to stop the sale.


8) Even after SOME of the dirty facts behind #UraniumOne became known in 2015, it was easily buried, ignored, passed by.


9) Somebody took a chance on Trump. They sat him down, walked him through what happened.

Ponder the impossible task being revealed.


10) Even if he WINS the election, he'd be taking over a gov't that had been corrupted & compromised by the previous administration to a


11) degree that was almost unfathomable.

HOW do you go about restoring the US gov't to what it should be, instead of what it's become?

RattlerGator

[B]

12) [So] Trump and his advisors came up with a plan.


A brilliant plan. An intelligence operation based on DECEPTION.


13) It started during the primaries when Trump began taking every opportunity he could to brag about what GOOD FRIENDS he'd be with Putin.


14) Trump literally could not seem to SHUT UP about how awesomely AWESOME his relationship with Putin was gonna be.


15) It became a running joke, a campaign feature, engendering much hand wringing & concern among Never Trumpers, including me at the time.


16) WHY does Trump keep going out of his way to incessantly BRAG about the sweet, sweet deals he & Putin are gonna do together?


17) But go back and look. During the primaries, during the general election campaign, what happened EVERY TIME Trump did this Putin act?


18) He *literally* trolled all the people who took dirty Russian $ to compromise our nat'l security into ATTACKING HIM FOR IT.


19) And all HE was doing was TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING HE HADN'T DONE YET and would NEVER really do.


20) Literally ever single time Trump talked about his good friend Vladimir, Hillary 'reminded' him Putin is...NOT our ally!

Davod

From Ace:

"Note: The little boy has been granted Italian citizenship, by the way. So Britain is basically executing an Italian citizen without any kind of a trial. I wonder what international repercussions this is going to have."

RattlerGator

[C]

21) Obama condescendingly chided Trump for his friendly talk about Putin. Holder was aghast, Lynch was stunned! etc.


22) They fell right into his trap. He TALKED about doing deals with a guy ALL THESE TRAITORS TOOK BRIBES FROM TO SELL URANIUM TO.


23) He's talking about hypothetical deals with Russia & people who took massive Russian bribes on the U1 deal rushed to ATTACK HIM for it.


24) What possible EXCUSE are they going to have when the truth comes out?
They're not going to have one. He made SURE of that.


25) Everything Trump does is calculated for effect.
So now you know why he showed all that 'Putin-Love' during the campaign.


26) The traitors had no idea what he was really doing & rushed to attack him for merely TALKING about doing deals with Russia.


27) Then Trump won the election. He and Sessions went to work.
Now here's something people overlook or don't understand.
Pay attention

28) All this stuff about #UraniumOne we're now just finding out?
Trump & Sessions knew about ALL OF THIS before they were sworn in.


29) Part of the intelligence operation Trump & Co. are running is you never show what you know, you keep your enemy in the dark.

........RattlerGator says: If, that is, the Ledge will calm the hell down and allow you to do so ;-)

30) Trump & Sessions knew about ALL the details of #UraniumOne BEFORE the election.
Who got how much, from who, all of it.


31) How much uranium was being shipped to Moscow, who facilitated that shipping, they already KNOW all of this.


32) They just haven't TALKED about until now. They PRETEND they are just now becoming aware of some of this stuff.


33) There was NO WAY they were going to come into office in January & tip all these people off "Yeah hey we're going after #UraniumOne!"


34) Trump & Sessions know what happened with #UraniumOne. All the dark, dirty details. START with that premise, replay the last 9 months.


35) You need to start an investigation where somebody deep dives into #UraniumOne BUT you can't let anybody outside KNOW that.


36) So here's where the second part of the intelligence operation begins.
You convince people it's TRUMP & HIS TEAM being investigated.


37) All the traitors who facilitated the #UraniumOne deal were on high alert after the transfer of power. Will they be sniffed out?


38) Well not to worry. Almost IMMEDIATELY the new President & his team end up being embroiled in a very public scandal.


39) Trump asks Comey to back off of Flynn, then fires Comey, who leaks memos to the NYT's & DEMANDS appointment of a Special Counsel.

40) With a President who bragged about doing deals with Russia, an advisor caught on the phone with the Russian ambassador.....

40(a)...and who briefly for 3 months hired a guy known to be 1 of the SLIMIEST and DIRTIEST Russian-connected people in DC as his manager.


40(b) [of course, now we know after the election it was actually JARED KUSHNER running the TRUMP campaign behind the scenes]


40(c) while Kelly Anne Conway was handling the public PR & media chores.
and Manafort was brought in as ANOTHER reason to investigate Trump!


41) ...everybody AGREES: yeah, great idea! Let's appoint a special counsel to investigate RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE in our election! So be it.


42) Jeff Sessions then recuses himself from the Russian investigation. [But remember: HE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ANYWAY]


43) Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein then appoints Bob Mueller & tasks him with investigation Russian interference in the 2016 election.


44) MUELLER AND ROSENSTEIN *both* already know that Trump & Sessions BOTH know all the details of #UraniumOne.
Got that?


45) Everybody involved in this ALREADY KNOWS. Everybody was in on this from the start. Trump, Sessions, Mueller & Rosenstein.


47) A lot of scenarios go wrong because they start by assuming Trump was clueless, didn't know any of this, Sessions didn't either or


48) was part of the #UraniumOne coverup. Same with Mueller & Rosenstein, whom many assume to be dirty, trying to HIDE the evidence.


49) An intelligence operation based on deception calls for putting the enemy at EASE because they don't understand what you're REALLY doing.

Boy would I like to see the process of the Italian citizenship reward used here. I can only imagine it is without merit.

I am not wishing any ill will towards the child. I am just curious about the new sovereignty busting procedure.

Did the parents apply for citizenship for themselves?

50) So: what do the #UraniumOne traitors & DNC Media & Democrats THINK has been going on for the last 8 months?


51) Trump has been STAGGERING on the ropes in desperate trouble trying to avoid a KNOCKOUT BLOW as Mueller relentlessly stalks him!


52) The reality? Mueller has been digging even deeper into #UraniumOne & into #FusionGPS & the Trump dossier.


53) He *has* found Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Do you know what it was?
Shall I tell you?


54) He found a MASSIVE Russian bribery scheme involving 1 of the Presidential candidates in which she compromised US nat'l security.


55) He *also* found this selfsame candidate illegally funding solicitation of info from Russian gov't sources to smear the OTHER candidate.


56) And to compound THAT offense, this candidate also tried to HIDE her funding of this dossier by using a law firm, which is illegal.


57) The investigation is mostly over. Most of the indictments from the grand jury/juries have been made, sealed.


58) You're all about to witness something that was deemed to be an impossibility.

RattlerGator

[G]

59) A previous administration that was so corrupt across so many agencies with so many people involved, it made it invincible....


60) is about to be rolled up.
Dozens of people are going to prison. And you know most of the names.


61) Not until the hammer actually falls & all the indictments are unsealed will most people figure out what Trump & his team did.


62) DNC Media never had a chance to compromise/thwart the investigation of #UraniumOne & #FusionGPS because they fell for the COVER STORY.


63) It's literally too late at this point to stop what's coming. That window closed weeks ago.


64) Examples will be made out of these people. When Trump & Sessions are done, NO ONE will ever try this kind of treason again.

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Elmer Fudd has already been spanking some serious azz behind the scenes but now, just for The Ledge, he's going to let us all in on it.

"I am not wishing any ill will towards the child. I am just curious about the new sovereignty busting procedure."

The moral travesty and emotional tragedy of little Alfie notwithstanding, I had similar thoughts. That's essentially, if not always technically, what Putin does whenever he wants to take back a bit of the old U.S.S.R. by force. He justifies such action for the "protection" of fellow Russians. Neither he, nor the Russians, invented the practice, however, which actually has a fairly long history.

Jack is Back!

Catching up.

clarice,

I know the Mayor announced for the festival but knowing Italian politicians especially the Mayor of Venice he will most likely make it permanent until someone comes from the hotel association and pays him off:)

momto2,

The 3 beagles can't stop loving us. Smother us all with tongue baths everyday. That's not a problem. No. 2 guy acts like the Alpha dog. He is faster, more energized and most sensory but No. 1 guy is more patient, more polite, less begging, etc. It just seems odd to me that No.1 wants to entrap No.2 with his food, chewy or toys. Like I say masochistic in a way.

RG,

Plausible. My bet is Flynn knew Rogers wanted to brief Trump and set it up while Zippy was still POTUS. But I don't buy the Mueller white-hat theory based on Trump deception. I hope I am wrong because nothing would make the members of this board happier, champagne sipping and smiling all day then to see the NYT/WaPo/NBCABCCBSCNNMSNBC nexus embarrassed and disqualified as news outlets but only the propaganda arm of the Resistance movement.

Under what I think should be the standard for the Nobel Peace Prize, Trump shouldn't get the prize until the year in which inspections of the NoKo nuke sites actually begin. In other words, a definitive peace agreement wouldn't be enough. However, if the standard is the one applied to Barry Obama, Trump should be immediately rewarded the prize. Trump has already done more to move forward the peace process in the Korean peninsula that Barry O did to move forward any peace process in his life.

If the Korean War really ends and inspections begin, look for NY Times to write a long and detailed article assuring its fans that it was really the Chinese and SoKO leaders and diplomats that achieved a real peace agreement and effective implementation procedures, and that it happened in spite of Trump.

"The Blogo indictment was designed as a distraction to draw attention away from Obama's criminal ways."

I'm sure that's related, I'm just trying to remember something about the indictment(s) timing that hinged on a pending Trib business deal somehow. If nothing immediately springs to mind, I'll see what I can dig up with Google, at some point.

They'll also give credit to Bubba J and Maddy All-too-Bright for dancing with Kim and the appeasement of the "Agreed Framework".

There were multiple Tribune deals. And timing was a factor,but It's convoluted.

Remember, Greg Craig (Skadden Arpps) was representing the Sam Zell owned Tribune.

Willowed since I just got back from a tour of President Garfield's house:

The claims come side-by-side with a revelation that Chelsea apparently saw herself as Kate’s equal, implying that the Clinton’s be the answer to America’s version of a royal family.

I'll forgive anything royals related as long as it illustrates the delusions of the latter day Snopes trash family. Does it get any more common than that?

RG, how stunning if true. If you think you can abandon us now, forget about it. we'll have Jane deputized to drag you back here.
