Beschloss attacks Wilson, will he attack FDR next? The left eats its own.

Oh, and First

Captain Hate

perhaps ultimately saved lives.

Perhaps, the ultimate cop out word. Aerial bombing to save lives is one of the more counterintuitive things I've heard; it was employed by the MFM dolts in service to their hero Slick for conducting his Bosnian misadventures strictly by aerial action with no troops on the ground. He blew up the Chinese embassy in Belgrade with one of those smart missiles.

FDR should get the full SJW treatment? What, SJWs hate Jews too?

I was wallowed re Winik who presents the facts more forcefully.

Oil was the Wermacht's achilles heal. divert bombs from that and how many more months of killing does the SS get?

--Trump to Macron: “MAKE FRANCE GREAT AGAIN.”--

Trump has a lot of gaul to go over to France and say that. :)
Did anyone ever think France was great? I mean besides the French.
There was that time Chuck Martel booted the musselmen...but since then? Hmmm....

The Infamous Ignatz

Many bombs strayed far from their intended target so a possible if not outright probable outcome of bombing the camps would have been thousands of Jews killed by us rather than the Nazis followed by either the rapid repair of the rail lines or transporting of the Jews by other means or simply a slaughter by other means were the gas chambers destroyed.
Given the psychopathic nature of the Nazi regime it's possible they would have been spurred to greater efforts to kill even more if they saw their efforts being thwarted.

henry

Maybe the left should sue FDR for a redo... like they are doing with Acosta and Rosenstein. It worked for the loser in Georgia.

McGovern had the usual 60's left-of-Humphrey squishy logic but wasn't actually an evil creep like so many on the left are today.

The Infamous Ignatz

--But I think he made two great mistakes in World War Two.” One was the internment of Japanese-Americans; the other was the decision “not to go after Auschwitz ...--

Leave it to a prog to not consider Yalta and the abandonment of Eastern Europe to an evil fully the equal of the Nazis as not one of FDR's great mistakes.

narciso

Wallowed, you probably couldn't do much for those prisoners from Yugoslavia they had made their own hellhole the first time I had heard of auschwitz was in winds of war, where hafstaegl is telling speer about it, in tones befitting a horror film.

Maybe they put it that far east to keep it put of the bomber, the tragedy of the ss St. Louis which my parents homeland had a small part in, does rest on saint delanos hands in part for appointing mussollini fan breckenridge long to the relevant post.

narciso

But what was the objective of the war, if it was to end it as soon as possible, well maybe unconditional surrender want the best strategy.

Captain Hate

I think they put them where they wanted people worked to death with minimum transportation costs. The Slavs definitely weren't part of the Master Race.

I'm going to become TK2! You'd think I'd have learned by now to refresh before posting during catch up!

A-mom, I have a hard time criticizing any way a married couple goes about having children to raise.

My post wasn't a criticism of either Obama, or anyone's "choice" of how to have children.

Decreasing fertility in women is a fact, with each passing year post 31 showing a dramatic decrease, to rather unlikely without assistance by 40 for the majority of women.

That fact is one that I think far too many young people are unaware of---even medical school graduates. Not to mention the increase in rates of birth defects, learning problems, and miscarriages in assisted pregnancies, as well as the increased rates of premature births and maternal morbidity and mortality in mothers over 40.

You want kids--get cracking!

My infertility doc didn't even know that 27 years ago, which is why my children don't have a sister! ;-)

((Mueller Set To Issue New Indictments "As Soon As Today"; Stone, Corsi, Don Jr. In Crosshairs | Zero Hedge))

"Corsi, who has called the potential indictment a "perjury trap," is suspected of having prior knowledge of the WikiLeaks dump of Hillary Clinton's campaign emails.

Reports have suggested that Mueller‘s interest in Corsi stems from a review of communications between him and Stone in 2016 about an impending release of Clinton campaign emails by WikiLeaks, the transparency activist organization. Mueller is investigating whether any Americans had advance knowledge of the email dump, which dominated the final weeks of the campaign. -Politico

NBC News reported in late October that Mueller was investigating whether Corsi knew that WikiLeaks had obtained emails stolen by Russian hackers and whether he shared this information with Roger Stone. "

Stolen by Russian hackers?
Are they talking about the Podesta emails or the DNC emails?

I don't think it has been established that "Russians" hacked anything.
Are they going by CrowdStrike's word?
Podesta fell for a scam & gave out his password, "password".

All of this Mueller stuff is evil.

Bernardi Dr la paz

Yes Janet, when assuange released millions of confidential cables they said nothing same when he compromised sources and methods. Like I say these documents were available to everyone with a scifi connectkon.

Acosta has the right to ask endless "questions" at White House pressers, to refuse to give up the mike until he feels he's done with his "questions", to grandstand on live television from the White House if he so chooses, to talk loudly over anyone at the podium if he doesn't like what they're saying, and to eternally grimace and shake his head at the outrages he perceives. Anything less is a violation of his 1st Amendment rights.

& how in the world can Mueller get away with the vague term "Russian hackers".
Who exactly?
Name the person/persons.

"Russian hackers" is an evil boogieman that can be anything that Mueller needs it to be.
Is he alleging that Donald Trump was in cahoots with the shadowy "Russian hackers"?

It is all so absurd & evil.

Dems & their media machine have gotten away with not just slandering our people..but slandering them with ABSURD accusations.

Years in the public spotlight and all of a sudden:

Donald Trump is a homophobic, anti-Semitic, racist nazi that is in cahoots with Russia.

Iggy, especially because none of them have any audience with anybody on our side. Why arm the propaganda arm of the Left with such access.

As to speaking with the FBI or the "government", I have had a standing joke for thirty years with a guy who has become one of the go-to guys when a big shot gets in trouble in things like that. The joke is that I will neither open any mail nor speak with any person from the DoJ or FBI without having him speak for me, and in return he promises to take my call at any hour. (I wish had had nailed down his hourly rate three decades ago when we struck this understanding.)

Old Lurker

There is no constitutional requirement that the POTUS or even his staff subject themselves to any such access, just as there is no constitutional requirement that POTUS journey up to the Capitol to deliver his "annual report".

I would be perfectly happy to have him just say "watch my actions" for the next two years. See you at the polls in 2020, punk.

Kevlar Kid

although not in the absolute, i remain unconvinced that bombing rail lines closer to the camps would have stopped or even slowed nazi slaughter mechanics.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsche_Reichsbahn

worth a read to gain insight into the magnitude of what an effective bombing campaign would have required logistically and in terms of precision bombing.

Below the line is for anybody wishing to know some details about my position on the matter.

++++++

(i'm leaving the allegations of anti-semitism out of this to look at the purely strategic challenge of disrupting the camp slaughters using strategic bombing-- Mrs Kid's maternal line is Ashkenazi Jew, so the anti-semitic FDR doesn't go unnoticed)

Why i remain unconvinced, so far:

Rail lines operated effectively and efficiently for much of the war, even to the Russian front.

The wiki explains how the largest European enterprise (the nationalized German rail system plus the Reich's incorporation of conquered nation's assets)in history was key to nazi military campaigns even up to the Battle of the Bulge in '44.

The complexity of the "imperial" railway system was a by-product of the Treaty of Versailles in that it was key to paying the $11 billion war reparations owed to creditors following the War to End All Wars.

In the most simplistic terms, the consolidation of rail assets from autonomous German states created one of the largest capital assets in Europe's history.

And, as one can logically surmise, that means 10s of thousands of miles of track throughout the Reich were operational and fully responsible for supporting the blitz and other early campaigns. this support, continued to be effective even as late as December 44.

deported Jews slated for extermination in the camps came from all over the Reich by rail.

Allied bombing from the first waves of RAF until 45 seemed not to have been very damaging to the war effort.

during the Russian campaign, the rolling stock damaged by Russians during their retreat in the face of Operation Barbarossa, the nazis replaced over 16,000 km of track.

even with the Russian tracks being an engineering non-fit, the Reich was able to lay compatible track to support it's troop advance--- one of the largest rail deployments in military history.

on balance, the Allies weren't that effective in destroying enough track to prevent the movement of tanks and troops to the Bulge in 44.

destroying track outside the camps, by comparison, might not have been as effective as destroying nazi repair and reconstruction centers which stored the replacement rolling stock and housed the skilled teams required to do the job...but that would've required more on the ground demolitions, if those demolition resources were even identifiable or manageable. and, at what human cost?


Extraneus

I like it, OL. That would also blow away any argument that CNN is being singled out, and in the process piss off the rest of their "colleagues." Win-win-win.

Kevlar Kid

henry: indeed. the raw equivalent of "movie grain" for me are raw cashews.... a diversified use source of nutrition---

cashew milk- a base for making raw cake, pies, and pastries

cashew butter

crushed cashews- a thickener for the batter used to make dehydrated crackers

and general nibbling throughout the day to quell hunger pangs (which emerge like clockwork even as they did when i was eating industrial diet foods).

the follies continue unabated!

After that Hawaii judge, or much of the 9th Circuit, anything is possible.

In the "Me or your lyin' eyes" category, NBC has the audacity to write this:

Sanders claimed in a statement that Acosta put "his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern" during the confrontation with Trump. A video of the exchange does not appear to support that accusation.

True, it was only one hand, so "hands" is a false accusation.

A federal prosecutor’s body was discovered on a Hollywood, Florida beach in May 2017.

Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr. was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district in Broward County at the time of his death.
He was shot in the head.

Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr.’s body was found in May 2017 by a random individual. Local police investigated to determine if Whisenant’s death was a “homicide, suicide, or something else.”
Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district.

Officials later decided Beranton’s death was a suicide and he shot himself in the head.
But no gun was ever found.


The Sun-Sentinel reported:

Detectives and a medical examiner found Whisenant had shot himself in the head, Hollywood police said.

Police searched for two blocks north and south of the crime scene but couldn’t find the gun or any other weapon.

He was assigned to the Miami office of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and been hired as federal prosecutor a few months earlier.

More… Three whistleblowers ended up dead in Broward County.

The ruling class ignored the people; the people struck back.

By Charles Kesler’s reckoning, the populism that brought Trump to power emerged from the sound conservative instinct to rebel against the modern administrative state. Conservative voters elected the orange-haired real estate mogul to restore limited government! This is wishful thinking. Trump voters in 2016 were not the Claremont Institute’s well-catechized Publius Fellows. They went to the polls to elect a man whose signature public stances entailed rejecting the the postwar era’s political culture, including mainstream postwar conservatism.

Well, now. I was driving my daughter to the airport and navigating with Google Maps on my Android phone.

My beloved daughter began complaining about how her smartphone had a deplorable negative attitude ever since she turned off the location tracker.

Now whenever she begins to type in her home address the phone is useless, making suggestions like 25 Maple Ave Indianapolis... 25 Maple Ave Boulder Co and so on when it ought to know damn well (as my daughter explained) where she lives.

Hoping to boost her spirits I said, "Yeah, why is your phone so passive-aggressive? Hey, Google, how are you going to turn that frown upside down?"

After about ten seconds my smart phone navigator chirped and said "I am sorry. I cannot help you with turning that frown upside down".

I am home!! Thank goodness. I was excused because I was dubious about the plaintiff's ONLY witness being a chiropractor.

The plaintiff attorney (who made sure we knew he went to Butler and grew up in Fishers which is next door to Carmel, swank suburb of northside Indy) asked how we felt about chiropractors. When he got to me I said I was unsure, but that my sister had been a scrub nurse for an orthopedic surgeon for years and she felt like they were half-way between physical therapy and folk medicine.

I am pretty sure that comment got me excused which was deliberate on my part. HA!

I wouldn't have minded staying but let me tell you, attorneys on both sides were the most BORING speakers I had ever heard, and the trial was going to take two days. I would have been nodding off like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The other question that might have gotten me excused was about ifi ANY damages were two high. Some farmer-type guy brought up the Monsanto Round-Up case where the guy was awarded $280 million which he thought was ridiculous. I asked if that was pain and suffering or punitive damages. Lawyer gave me a furrowed-brow look at that comment, too.

Anyway, I have done my civic duty and hope I don't have to do it again until the weather is more pleasant. It's cold as heck outside with a pretty stiff breeze.

i'm by no means anti-audiobots (Alexa etc)... we're laying groundwork for consumer bookings in custom and luxury travel bundles that are shopped on Amazon.

"Alexa--- find me a two week all inclusive mediterranean cruise with some nightly stays along the Amalfi coast."

Our agents will function as "affiliates" to assemble the inventory, include it as Amazon inventory, and handle the bookings and provide carriers with a real-time human contact to manage particulars to avoid the Expedia effect of mishandled details, a big flaw in self-booking travel happening more often than not.

so we're all in on the tech. our application will prove at least mildly disruptive to the order of self-booking platforms.

of course, all tech is abuseable in the "right hands."

A fundraising enail I plan to ignore after laughing at (sorry porch, librarians will not get my money):

Yale's library system is a fantastic resource but its size and complexity can be intimidating to first-year students. The Personal Librarian Program for undergraduates matches every new student entering Yale College with a research librarian and is designed to help them become more comfortable using a large academic research library.

Diana Lopez’s ES ’19 first encounter with Jana Krentz, the Curator for the Latin American and Iberian collections, was when she received an email with the subject line “Greetings from Your Personal Librarian.” Diana and Jana immediately connected over their shared home state of Wisconsin. Jana developed into a mentor for Diana as she navigated the myriad of resources available at Yale both inside and outside the library system.

As an Ethnicity, Race, and Migration major, Diana has worked with Jana throughout her academic career including on her senior essay. “At first, Jana guided and encouraged me to seek out resources available to me as a 1st gen student.
