You guys really need to see the photos in this short article.

FCPA and Goldman Sachs

The U.S. Justice Department is planning to announce Thursday morning multiple criminal charges related to a multi-billion dollar Malaysian sovereign wealth fund scandal, including against two former Goldman Sachs bankers and Malaysian financier Jho Low

reading the WSJ article... Sessions got a $43.7 million asset forfeiture out of one of the GS guys: Tim Leissner.

TomB, it is Eeyore.

It all comes down to Tuesday. If he holds Congress then all is forgiven about slow walking the other priorities.

If he loses the House, I stand on my prediction of doom.

Old Lurker

$1 will be awarded to the spotter of the most weasel words in the above post:

"But three sources close to the president say that Trump and his aides are privately far more pessimistic. Recently, the president has stressed in conversations with confidants that if things go south for the GOP in November, he won’t take the blame and is prepared to scapegoat other party leaders. In Trump’s West Wing, words such as “slaughter” and “massacre” have come up among political, policy, and communications advisers in their private predictions of what this month could bring, according to three sources present for such conversations."

MM,

Thanks for that link to Surber. I have sent this to my Vet's group. From there it will go viral, that you can bet on. Of course, the media will respond by noting those two young ladies have hairstyles reminiscent
of 1940's Nazi women.

Before I spend the time to identify all the weasel words - are you really gonna pay out that dollar, OL? :)

I'm not an expert in all the renditions of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, but the one by E. Power Biggs (1906-1977) is bone-chillingly excellent. Last night was a perfect night to be discussing this, but I watched the Rocky Horror Picture Show instead.

(Click to hear on youtube.)

Tom Bowler

You sounded so upbeat that I couldn't resist, OL.

But I'm not so sure we'll lose the House, and even if we do, I don't think it spells doom. A set back for sure, but not doom, since the Dems will likely have it for only two years.

We'll know Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. In the meantime I await election day with a sense of calm anticipation. :)

Deplorable Don notes strengthening ties between Israel and pro-Trump countries of the midEast.
https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2018/11/peace-breaks-out-in-middle-east.html
(US official): "In the last few days we have seen our regional partners Oman, Bahrain, and the UAE make statements and/or gestures signaling warmer ties with Israel. A more stable region leads to a stronger and more prosperous region. It is good for all"

And the Jerusalem Post reported, "In an unusual move, the Palestinian Authority, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar have all made official statements on Sunday condemning Saturday's mass shooting in a synagogue in Pittsburgh."

The article also mentions (I know MissM approves) the sword dance and Trump's direct flight from Saudi to Israel.

Miss Marple

Yes, Miss M approves! Thanks, JimNorCal!

Now I am going to get some work done around here. Back in an hour or two.

JiB, I just finished that book about Evelyn Nesbitt, the murder of Stanford White, and subsequent trial by your friend Mary Cummings, Saving Sin City. Fascinating. Thanks for the recommendation.

President Donald Trump’s administration has approved Gov. Scott Walker’s controversial plan to require childless adults on Medicaid to work or lose coverage, but the federal government rejected Walker’s proposal to require drug screening and testing.

The Sanford White case, in 1906 declared “the crime of the century” with 96 years still to go, found its way into the Broadway play, “Ragtime”.

Old Lurker

TomB...still looks binary to me. Russian Roulette with three loaded chambers, three empty. Then every time I see a new economic stat I wonder why in the world the country would risk all that and then I think four empty chambers. Then I realize how really really uninformed and dumb so many people are and I go back to three/three.

Like the monkey said who caught his tail in the fan, "won't be long now".

AP played up Paul Ryan in separate articles on the campaign and on the caravan, trumpeting it as I knew they would. they misreport the analysis, as I knew they would. Here’s one excerpt:

Trump slammed outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., tweeting that Ryan "should be focusing on holding the Majority" instead of weighing in on the president's push to end the Constitution's guarantee of birthright citizenship.

Trump tweeted that Ryan shouldn't offer "his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about!"

Trump has said he can end the right to citizenship for babies born to non-U.S. citizens on American soil with an executive order. And he has argued that the right isn't covered by the 14th Amendment, even though the text of the constitutional amendment says that "all persons born or naturalized" in the U.S. are citizens.

Ryan, who is retiring, said Tuesday that Trump couldn't "end birthright citizenship with an executive order."

maryrose, Ryan may be a nice man, but he is a political *ss.

Ethics Panel: Florida Mayor Solicited Sex for Speed Bumps

“The mayor should be ashamed for what he did,” Padilla told the Palm Beach Post. “I think it’s time he steps down. He needs to be accountable for his actions, and he needs to do the right thing and step down."

Btw, she admits she had sex with him, but claims it was in return for speed bumps.

Janet

((Has she disappeared, Janet? I wanted to see her do an interview in the girly voice.))

I don't know...THAT is weird in itself.
For being such a saint to the left, you'd figure she would be on the talking head show circuit.

Not on 'The View'? How can THAT be?
Why isn't she sharing her vegan stew recipe on 'Good Morning America'?
Kimmel & her could be bustin' a gut over jokes about cutting off Kavanaugh's penis.

From the Milo link - "This, by the way, is the reason the Left ends up mobbing people on Twitter and cheering on Antifa. They don’t have stable families, communities, friends, jobs or churches. So they have to build something to compensate. What they build is always dreadful, and it always impoverishes them, financially, physically and spiritually. Ronald Reagan was asked once about some filthy hippies protesting him with signs that said MAKE LOVE NOT WAR. His response was that they didn’t look like they could do either."

That's true.

Janet

"According to an October 16 piece, Business Insider thinks dreamcatchers, sheikhs, geishas, rastas, soldiers, Mexican Day of the Dead homages, ballerinas, fat suits, Hooters waitresses, Kim Kardashian outfits, Stranger Things characters, snake charmers, convicts, clowns, hobos, straightjackets and animal costumes are all “offensive” and “problematic” and the journalist Susannah Heller says you should stay away from all of them. I genuinely don’t know what’s left."......


"The Left seems intent on stopping cross-dressing for Halloween, which seems entirely at odds with their dedication the other 364 days of the year to turn men into women, women into men and children into desperately confused, suicidal genderqueer fuck-ups. Some schools have gone so far as to ban it entirely. Or they call it Orange and Black Day or the Fall Festival. They have even changed it to Hat Day in some places."

JimNorCal

Tom Bowler has it exactly right. Be attentive but calm and equable.
Don't obsess over polls.

But this one show McSally leading.

"Hooters waitresses"

I promise never to dress up as a Hooters waitress. And when a Hooters waitress brings me wings and beer, I promise to admire her. . . table setting style. I guess I'm woke!

“In this case, not only is the accuser credible, but one of her best friends who was also there watched her go up to the hotel room allegedly with Robert Mueller. This corroborating witness is also very credible. This is not a person looking for profit. These are not people who are politically motivated. These people aren’t political, they’ve never voted. They are certainly not looking for profit, and they certainly don’t need profit. I’ll put it this way, these are a couple of very wealth people, prominent people.”

Gorgeous November 1st here in Southampton. 65F and flowers on our arbor are re-blooming:) Not a cloud in the sky. Still no frost.

If the republicans don't hold the house, how can anyone blame Trump? I don't remember any POTUS who has worked so tirelessly campaigning for DC pols like he has. Plus he also has Pence, Ivanka, Don Jr all out on the road. I would think if anyone is discouraged it has to be the Dems. Who is out there on their side bringing 12-15K to their rallies?

I am beginning to like our odds.

Rosenstein can keep Mueller under control and has as far as damaging DJT. He's recently been a non issue. I've come to realize that Manafort was worse than I thought but it still doesn't excuse the police state tactics used against him.

That doesn't really address the question of why would Rosenstein even hire Mueller in the first place knowing that he was a Deep State Made Man/Black Hat.

Bird egg colors inherited from dinosaurs:

Wiemann and her colleagues analyzed 18 fossil dinosaur eggshell samples from around the world, using non-destructive laser microspectroscopy to test for the presence of the two eggshell pigments. They found them in eggshells belonging to Eumaniraptoran dinosaurs, which include small, carnivorous dinosaurs such as Velociraptor.

MissM, They're lining up at 6 am in Columbia MI for a 6:30 pm rally. I have a plan...get in line at 6 am and put out a couple of old beat up lawn chairs that you won't miss if stolen. Sit out there for a couple of hours and then fake an emergency call and ask your neighbors if they'd mind watching your spot until you can get back. Go warm up somewhere for a couple of hours and return with a good story that will keep you leaving during the day. Then you can sit behind the Prez during the rally? And the dollar store has cheap hand warmers.

Janet

from henry's 11:01 - "birds inherited their egg color from non-avian dinosaur ancestors that laid eggs in fully or partially open nests."

Birds were created before land animals.

Eggs having some same color qualities only shows the same Artist created them.

I don't think we are allowed to take in signs. Plus, if the weather is like today, I am going to be holding an umbrella!

The book I read which hot me interested in geology was from the Weekly Reader Book Club (before that publication and club were liberalized and dumbed down.)

The title was "All About Dinosaurs" by Roy Chapman Andrews. He was the geologist who found the first fossilized and intact dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia.

Captain Hate

That doesn't really address the question of why would Rosenstein even hire Mueller in the first place knowing that he was a Deep State Made Man/Black Hat.

Maybe the burden should be on you and RG to prove why such a career lowlife who destroyed the reputation of the FBI, along with a number of innocent lives, is this great guy.
