I don't know if you saw that tablet piece, about the prologue to the six day war, in a way it was a miracle the way it turned out, with barzillai and other figures, pushing caution,

Dave,

ChiTown says Steve McQueen tried that in another government documentary, "The Blob." It didn't go well.

It's too bad head shrinkers are almost completely fraudulent because Billy the Kid Kristol and Tweedle Frum are in need of some serious help.
It's especially grating to hear a couple of neocon dickweeds who never saw a pointless war they didn't love lecturing anyone on FP.
Shut up and die.

Ignatz,

I have no objection to foreign workers, provided they enter legally, are screened, and are paid on the books with the same wages, taxes, and Social Security as American workers.

The problem is that too many employers have skated on using illegals and have built their business model on it. That has got to change.

It is particularly bad in agriculture, landscaping, and the food services industries. American consumers are just going to have to suck it up and pay a few bucks more for dinner out, or getting their flower beds mulched. I think we need an educational push on how the system is currently operating and what needs to change.

narciso

it's disappointing, because they forgot that the neocons wanted political action, cultural exchanges et al, and war was the last resort, when general principles calcify into dogma

What ensued was an epic festival of fools. First, the crowd appeared to be made up of low-level White House staffers and slumming lobbyists on their lunch breaks. Judging by the photos, the firm of Squire Patton Boggs upset the New England Patriots last February. The electric Twitter machine was a’glow with reporters asking the attendees who the Philadelphia quarterback was last season. (Nobody knew.) One guy took a knee in the crowd and there was more booing and heckling than you might have expected.

Second, during the playing of "God Bless America," which was the whole purpose of this propaganda burlesque, it became abundantly clear that the president* doesn’t know the song’s lyrics any more than he knows the third verse to “Duke of Earl.” There is video of this now that will live forever. This is good because, some day, our Andromedan overlords are going to wonder how it all went so very wrong.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access — albeit briefly — to the U.S. financial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the public it had no plans to do so.

An investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday sheds light on the delicate balance the Obama administration sought to strike after the deal, as it worked to ensure Iran received its promised benefits without playing into the hands of the deal’s opponents.

So, the Obama Administration went "native Iranian" and lied to outwit those evil "opponents"

I have objection to foreign workers even if they do enter legally, etc, if they;
1. Have no intention of assimilating and instead want to turn America into a version of the shithole they recently vacated and;
2. Vote for Dems who are all for America as shithole so long as they get to rule it.

" The ancient Beringians then pushed south as the ice caps melted and mixed with other Native American populations, which is why many Native Americans today also exhibit physical characteristics more commonly associated with whites."

Dint know there were Native "Americans" during the denouement of the Pleistocene era.

Also from the article, it's unclear to me what this sentence means: "A new genome from a Pleistocene burial in Alaska confirms a longstanding belief that European ancestors first arrived in America."

First arrived or "arrived first"? The link suggested the latter while the sentence sounds like a hedge of sorts.

Was Europe in existence during the Pleistocene? Were Europeans in existence during the Pleistocene?

I agree. We moved around a lot. It's at the heart of the Navajo-Hopi dispute.

Ignatz,

I am not talking about permanent immigrants. My son used to manage a landscape crew who came in the spring from Mexico and returned home in the fall, all on legal temporary worker visas.

These guys just came here for the work and had no interest in uprooting their families.

Of course, if Mexico descends into a Marxist narco-terror state, we might desperately need that wall because there will be millions trying to flee.

Isn't it good to know that the nsf has created categories of groups they want to give advantages to so that the workforce is "diverse"? Clearly peddling a different mlk dream than the one kev was referring to.

I think all the talk of a blue wave in Orange County amounted to bushwa from the results I have seen so far. Glad to see Scott Baugh go down in flames as he deserved.

There was a recall in North County of a Dem state legislator that looks to have been successful and may have just cost the Dems their politburo supermajority. That would be nice.

And that clip, Kev, I will never unsee. That song was orful.

Re Clarice's post about an Awan plea deal having been reached.

I'm sorry. Until We the People are informed what exactly has been going on, who paid, and how it has been fixed, I take ANY plea deal as a Swamp tool for hiding the truth and setting the stage for repeats ad infinitum. Old days, perhaps, but now that nobody associated with our system of justice and intelligence can be trusted, only brutal cynicism is warranted when one hears news like this. The sooner President Trump recognizes that he is accountable for fixing this mess, it will hamper his agenda too.

Femall.

"removing all doubt"

Probably.

Could be trying to save the institutions they seem to care about regardless of recent "African Swan" POTUS misuse and abuse.

Seems like the "Dog ate my homework" excuse where Trey and Ryan are saying "Well if the dog really did eat the homework then the assignment should be granted an A because benefit of doubt"

NO SHIT Old Lurker. Try this on for size. Call your Congresscritter, mine is million year veteran, Conservative millionaire Republican Kimberly-Clark heir F.JAMES SENSENBRENNER, ask your guy/gal about any of these SWAMP ISSUES/SCANDALS. AWAN, SPYING, SAMANTHA POWER, McCABE, McCABE'S wife, STRZOK, PAGE, OHR, OHR'S WIFE/Rodham investigation ETC ETC ETC ETC.....no fucking response, a form letter full of bullshit....and they still cash their TAX PAYER funded pay check.
THEY DON'T FUCKING CARE. They ARE the swamp.
Tell me a single fucking REPUBLICAN who is as pissed off as ANY of US.

Has anyone suggested that Paul Ryan die in a fire? I'm willing to step up, if not.

Old Lurker

They don't get it, Boris.

The institutions they want to save are ruined already.

Trust needs to be rebuilt from scratch before that "Consent of the Governed" thingy kicks back in, and even that cannot commence until enough people with three digit IQs actually can see the wreckage and agree that yes, that really is wreckage and not modern art.

Any Awan plea is unacceptable to me. He needs to sing like a bird.

From what I can understand a whole bunch of Democrat paid unbelievable amounts of money to a bunch of non Americans to steal every secret the house had and sell them to our enemies. I do not understand why every one of the Democrat politicians involved are not in jail.

Because they personally profit by it, while having to shoulder little or no responsibility for the results.

Did you guys see this from ABC News (linked by Drudge)?

DOJ watchdog finds James Comey defied authority as FBI director, sources say

Comey and Lynch will be singed by the IG. Comey accused of "insubordination," Lynch of derilection, etc. It's ABC, so they like to say the tarmac meeting that "just happened" was a coincidence, but the report must be ready to drop.

henry,

I have Andre Carson. Bah. I should have made staying in a GOP district a search criteria when we were looking for houses. That's probably why my daughter got such a good price for the house.

You could still call and raise holy hell, just for the satisfaction of it!

James D.

I do not understand why every one of the Democrat politicians involved are not in jail.

Considering what the ISI gets up to, there's a good argument to be made for everyone who paid the Awans to be tried for treason (based on the literal Constitutional definition) and executed for it.

Old Lurker

Agreed, Pagar. All the crooks and enemies paid each other, but so far nobody has paid Lady Justice squat. Perhaps she should remove her blindfold and take a damn look around herself.

GIULIANI SAYS MUELLER’S TEAM IS TRYING TO ‘FRAME’ TRUMP

We would have been so lucky, Narc, had they been AWOL. Under Clapper and Brennan, they diverted it to attack us inside the tent they were charged to protect.

Whitewash.

Comey used abuse of power to protect Hillary and sabotage Trump.

If the report is watered down that much it is useless anyway because Comey will remian Hero of The People Left.

This blurb in the ABC report addresses Exdem's (?) comment last night assumning Trump has the unredacted IG report:

"...There is no indication the president has seen – or will see – a draft of the report before its release. Horowitz, however, could revise the draft report now that current and former officials mentioned in it have offered their responses to the inspector general's conclusions, according to the sources."

The IG report will be a finger waging. Nothing more.
