From a friend. Sounds really excellent to me!

"Laughing about Trump threatening the media credentials. Maybe they'll have to fill out a form, have an instant background check, the license is only good for the state in which they've done the form and there's a waiting period before they can print stories. And one fake story and they lose their license forever."

I've been tempted to nap in that common room at HGS. I also note some common rooms / seminar rooms were known for other horizontal uses during the wee hours, less so during exam reading times (last week or so of each semester, as in when this event happened).

That said, a prog meltdown is always a good spectacle.

Did the black student live in the dorm?

If not, she had no right to be there at 1:30 am at all, sleeping or not, studying or not.

I work on an urban university campus that doesn't have 1/10 the crime problems that Yale has. I've spent lots of time on the Yale campus. It's more dangerous now than it was then.

Going down the rabbit hole of the "accuser's" beliefs and past is completely irrelevant and also dangerous, as it will make the next person think twice about calling the police for any reason at all. Which I would argue is actually the goal of the left here.

Of course, JNC, reading that didn't give me a headache.

Has anyone found out what RACES the 2 people in this story are said to be.
I mean the RACE of the NAPPER and the RACE of the person who reported the NAPPER are VITAL to understanding this.
Do we know yet??

We know, GUS. I'll leave it to you to guess.

The wonderful thing about exercising your humanity is being able to adopt differing hypothetical frameworks for argument’s sake.

I dare any prog or lib to explain to me which framework of theirs is foundational, which one is real.

The internet conspiracy theorists are going into full scale overdrive on the possibility that Stormy Daniels is a member of the NXIVM sex cult. I think it was MM who provided a link to the story on Twitter. Daniels has a tweet from several years ago from where she stated she had joined a gang/cult (she used both terms). Someone then looked at pictures she had posted of herself on Instagram and it does appear like she has a NXIVM symbol branded on her body but hidden with a tattoo.

If Daniels really is a member of NXIVM then it raises a lot of interesting possibilities as to what is really going on regarding her accusations against Trump.

Ralph L

The napper said she was surrounded by papers, which should have tipped off the racist, who sounds like a professional student.

henry

Ralph, good point. Bear in mind, during reading period some get stressed beyond sanity and mentally crack. Since riding that edge is what SJW stuff is all about, it is not a surprise a broken one would be left to roam and damage all around. Moar victims that way.

Porchlight

We kick people out of the library in the wee hours all the time. Many of them are doing harmless things like reading or studying. Many of them are surrounded by papers. But if they aren't current university students, faculty or staff, tough. That's the policy. And they have to show ID to prove it.

The other student could have asked "hey, do you live here? Just checking" rather than straight up calling the police. But if the napper couldn't provide ID at that moment, what's next?

Miss Marple

Tom R,

I posted that so people's le would be aware of the story. That stuff is not my cup of tea. She me of the stuff I see is just weird fantasy, like the guy who thinks Trump's goal is to get whoever killed JFK.

The other student could have asked "hey, do you live here? Just checking" rather than straight up calling the police. But if the napper couldn't provide ID at that moment, what's next?

I don't know how big the dorm is, but this is the end of the school year, so the two students have been living in the same building for 9 months, which makes the whole thing seem pretty odd to me.

I also have to wonder, since the napper was, well, napping, and therefore wasn't posing an immediate threat, why didn't the other student go find the RA or RD and ask them to do something, before escalating straight to the police?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Boy, remind me to not post on my phone!

I am home. MY stuff at the garage sale was priced and marked. OTHERS had not determined value of antiques and collectibles so I used up my battery looking up prices on eBay.

Then when my dem sister started bossing me around I decided it was time to leave.

She currently is upset because the city has decided to put a walking trail behind their neighborhood. No one asked them about it and the (DEMOCRAT mayor and DEMOCRAT council were very surprised to find out that anyone would object to strangers walking right by their back windows.

A member of the council came by to walk the area and that is when I made my exit, before I was tempted to say something insulting.

henry

James D, hint is "Hall of Graduate Studies" as the dorm. These are grad students not undergrads, so they have no RAs or RDs living there. It is possible that one of the students involved was an RA at an undergrad dorm, but went to HGS to study. The story does not have all required facts.

OL, the wedding plans sound good for a pretty and arresting effect--doves, rent-a-moons, and flowers of the Orient. But it lacks pomp. Have you thought enough about pomp? I suggest you think Aida here. Since Ringling Bros. went down there must be loads of pachyderms hanging outside the Home Depots looking for work...then, and perhaps only then, will you have sealed the nuptials with proper solemnity (a key goal of any father-of-the bride).

Jack is Back!

Well, I have been going back and forth to Yale for the past 3 months. Frederick and I walked all over the place from our hotel (The Omni), up Temple, through the Green to the Old Campus and onto Beineceke Plaza and over to the Shops at Yale on Dixwell. Then in the mornings we walked down to College and S. Frontage to the CSC at Yale Med.

Never had a confrontation. Saw a few crazies talking to themselves and look like outdoorsmen (PC for Homeless). At night we even walked 8 blocks to a restaurant recommended to us, Adriana's on Western.

Maybe we were lucky.

Harvard had a recent BLM excitement when Cambridge police had to use force to subdue a black student (Naked) near Harvard Square. The usual PC ruckus ensued. Probably will go on ad naseum until someone pays up.

Pinandpuller

I don't mean to crosspost as it were but I think that conservative Michael Medved, school chum of Bill and Hillary, is proving to be silly and stupid in his predictions:

I actually believe that Trump represents the very, very worst elements of our politics and would be very threatening and damaging for the future for my kids, the republic, our economy and our national security — and really, more than any other candidate in my lifetime he represents a threat to the viability of the United States of America,” he said.

On all of the issues, the core issues that make people Conservative, Trump is wrong. He is on the other side,” Medved said. “My inclination right now — this is a terrible situation for hosting a talk radio show … I’m not at all sure that on the issues that matter most to Conservatives that Trump is better than Hillary (Clinton). I think he is probably worse.”

I wish I could remember all the details of the last Lauder wedding or an Indian moguls my friends were at--but in that one elephants were ivolved.

Frankly, I think people should just decide on a budget and tell the kids anything not spent on the wedding they get to keep.

Selbstfussenschutzen seems to be a canon of moderate Republicanism these days.

But this more than offset with the cnnibalism occurring the Democratic Party now. Spankypants Schneiderman is much more entertaining that a washed up hooker and her ambulance chaser and how can you beat the liberal outrage at someone wearing a gown from Weinstein's wife to the Met freak show. But wait! There's more!

We can watch as the radical, looney tunes leftists make every simple daily courtesy an act of racism, sexism, oppression or cultural appropriation (take your pick).

Someone needs to package this and highlight the sheer parody of it all. So much for Ralph Waldo Emerson. Pajamaism rules the day if you look at the coasts.

I think that I'll just head for my safe space in the gun room and smoke a Cuban and eat some steak tartare and admire my bust of Mahatma Gandhi.

Only one elephant? Cheese-parers, evidently.

I agree completely with you, Clarice--not only should a person spend no more than they can readily afford but the strategy of giving the top budget and promising the residue to the planners (in the right hands) will lead to a good result (and less pomp). One of the things I specially like about today's culture in the inculcation of a bride's "special day." In the war--I am thinking of WWII, but it applies to most wars--you marry where you can, and quickly. There's a deep romance to such weddings.

MM, in Imperial Beach a new development was forced to put a bike path behind an existing neighborhood. Shortly after the path opened the residents of the neighborhood got a pile of notices to clean up their backyards in 30 days or get fined.

The city is trying to back peddle out of the PR nightmare. One solution proposed was to spend taxpayer money to improve the private yards.

Jane,

NXVIM is a sex cult that has been in the news recently when the FBI arrested their leader Richard Raniere and actress Alison Mack (who I had never heard of before until the story broke). Best to just Google it. I do know the leader Raniere has some connection to the Clintons.

The articles I read when the story broke a few weeks ago is that many of the women members of the cult are treated as sex slaves who are brainwashed, drugged, etc and who must submit to the whims of Raniere. The sex slaves all get branded with Raniere's intitials somewhere on their body. In the case of Stormy Daniels, someone enlarged photos of her from her Instagram account and point out what they believe is Raniere's brand hidden inside a tattoo. Its a bizarre story to say the least.


Tom R

Correction on the NXIVM cult leader's name. Its Keith Raniere, not Richard.

Good Morning!

Just passed my Physical with the annual EKG. Yippie! The Doc very wisely has a huge old Alaskan style Malamute in the office, who lies on the entrance rug and when I come in I sit down and pet him and we two become good buddies all over again since I smell like Fry and Scout. Doc stepped out of the office after examining some other guy and then started talking about how studies were done showing how letting guys like me roll around on a rug with a friendly dog lowers our Blood Pressure substantially. I'm sure he's correct as I was having fun instead of sweating passing the test.

All that said, I missed lots of Rush's Show, but I did catch a good long monolog of his examining if one of the reasons Nunes is being stymied by the DOJ is because the FBI may have planted an informant in Trump's Campaign and they're refusing to give Nunes his/her identity. Here's the transcript from Rush:

Did the FBI Plant an Informant in the Trump Campaign?

The only trouble with Stormy Daniels in a sex cult is it reminds me of the I, Claudius depiction of Messalina vs Scylla.

Scylla asks to be paid for her trouble, saying in effect, I do for money what you do for fun.

How would you like to clean 10 houses then go home and scrub your bathtub?

Has anyone commented on the fairly new (to me) custom of taking the wedding party on a get-away before the wedding? Many of the friends of my children are getting married now (20 somethings) so I hear it all.

One took all of the bridesmaids on a Caribbean cruise and another had to settle for a weekend on a riverboat while cruising the Tennessee River.

It all seems to be a one-upmanship exercise to me.

Do you like sex cults? Do you like conspiracy theories?

There has been much written about Grace Kelly since her death, in 1982. Beautiful, serene and mysterious, she captivated the world for decades. A much-anticipated exhibition at the Victoria & Albert museum next month will focus attention on her role as a style icon, with pieces from her wardrobe displayed alongside her films and photographs, yet apparently, beneath the glamorous facade of her fairy-tale life lies a dark underbelly. Whispers of sexual promiscuity and even the suggestion that Kelly was not at the wheel when the car carrying her and teenage daughter Stephanie plunged off a rocky hillside continue to surface. None is more bizarre, though, than the claim that, shortly before her untimely death, Kelly was initiated into a cult called the Order of the Solar Temple. The allegations centred on interviews with a man who worked for over a decade for di Mambro, a senior leader of the sect, and an acupuncturist who claimed she helped prepare the princess for the initiation ceremony that is said to have taken place in the summer of 1982 in an ancient priory in Beaujolais. The Order of the Solar Temple achieved worldwide notoriety in 1994 when 69 members in Europe and north America died in what appeared to be a planned series of mass suicides and murders. All the dead were followers of Luc Jouret, a 46-year-old self-styled guru and supposed homeopathic healer who lectured on New Age theories. While di Mambro directed the group from behind the scenes, Jouret was its persona. Like many cult leaders, Jouret warned his followers of a coming apocalypse. He explained this would occur through environmental disasters and only the elite would survive.

Good afternoon! The daughter calls the wedding business the "wedding industrial complex." Ha. After being in two large weddings of college friends,she decided on the beach wedding with only both sets of parents. One of the weddings of a friend was a huge Italian wedding. Sadly,her friend is now divorced,but actually was never married! The priest never submitted the paperwork to the state of NH. Her friend is a lawyer,so was able to deal with the issue. The couple didn't have children,which would have complicated the matter.

New Tom Steyer PAC Ad Compares Republicans to White Nationalists

What's wrong with being a white nationalist? But get a load of the ad:

The video shows a mother talking about her son, who is in college. The woman explains to the camera that, when her son was younger, he would steal from less fortunate kids. Meanwhile, the ad shows what appears to be a yearbook photo of the son with the quote: "Go back to where you came from."

The mother adds that her son was never afraid to talk to girls, as the ad displays a picture of him yelling at women while holding a sign that says "Baby Killer" and wearing a Trump shirt.

"It wasn't until I met his college buddies that I realized it might be too late," the woman says as a picture of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia appears on screen. "Only a mother can catch the signs early. This Mother's Day, talk to your child about the GOP. I wish I had."

Well I don't know a ton about paying for a Daughter's Wedding since I haven't arrived yet at that bit of Cultural insanity, but my take is it's probably a bit like that scene in The Big Lebowski where Walter and Jeffrey Lebowski (The Dude) are at The Funeral Home trying to figure out the proper and respectful way to deal with Donnie's ashes:

So far so good. What's up with all these guys of a certain age shaving their mustaches? MM, Alan Dershowitz, Alex Trebeck, and Jay Sekulow? I don't like it.

Yeah... If you met me you'd think I was a bum, too. Wanna cut a deck of cards for your entire net worth?

P&P,I read somewhere that Jimmy Stewart's wife was on the set of "Rear Window" every day because of Grace Kelley's reputation.

Beasts, a couple notes:

1. Steyer and I were on the same team then
2. He's a big dude.
3. Lots of time at practice 1 on 1 "in the box" drill.*
4. Neither of us backs away from anything.

* This drill puts a defender (e.g. Steyer) and a forward (me) in the penalty area plus goal keeper. Balls are tossed randomly in the box. Shoot or clear in one touch. The trick (for a forward) is to take the first step away from the ball into the defender, they naturally push you towards the ball giving you space to turn. (I think the defenders just tried to kick you and the ball upfield / didn't care which). Two minute rounds, new ball arrives as the current ball is touched. Tommy is big, so I stay low and shoulder to stomach for the bump free. My elbow went where it went. ;)

Daddy, great news your physical. Kinda like sudden death from hell if you flunk.

The Big Lebowski was the all time favorite of Jr. and his buddies. Probably aired 30 times at the Buckeye residence.

2. Now that you are woke, do you have any doubt at all that they did exactly that to get within the two-hop rule for wiretapping the entire Trump organization?

We already know that thanks to the Carter Page FISA warrant scandal that the Obama administration was able to wiretap the entire Trump campaign using the two-hop rule.

BTW the speculation I have seen (IIRC from Sundance) regarding the unnamed individual in the Boyd letter that the DOJ refuses to identify to Nunes is that it is judge Contreras who was originally assigned to the Flynn case but forced to recuse himself. He is also a FISC judge and the speculation is he is the one who approved the Carter Page FISA warrant but I don't think that is public knowledge yet. Of special note is that Contreras and Strzok are personal friends with each other.

As in every report I recall for at least ten years, his final recommendation was "Lose five pounds".

Sure that doc didn't drop a zero OL???
