Surprised I have not heard a peep about the overseas US Military Ballots this Election. Usually there is always some big stink about how they were never sent or received in time, and then some Congress-critter grandstands in pledging to fix it so that this never happens again. Did somebody actually finally fix it?

Frau Indianerherz

daddy - AFAIR the Seattle homeless were allowed to "use" addresses of public buildings since they had no personal address. OK but the kicker was ballots found a week or so late in some drawer and some elsewhere. They were AOK too because--say it with me--"every vote counts." When will we learn it's "every legal vote that counts"?

Saudi Crown Prince Claims Assassination Attempt Against Him Was Thwarted

BBC Arabic reports based an exclusive Jerusalem Post story that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman told a group of Evangelical leaders who met with him in Riyadh earlier this month there was a recent plot to assassinate him, and that the plan was thwarted by Egyptian intelligence.

The Jerusalem Post first broke the story this week based on accounts of the returning Evangelical delegation who met with the crown prince on November 1. Joel Rosenberg, who led the delegation of American Evangelical Christians said MbS relayed that the head of Egyptian intelligence recently came to Riyadh to inform Saudi authorities that a terrorist cell with Saudi citizens had been caught in northern Sinai. “They were planning to assassinate me,” MbS told the American delegation.

Bill McGurn, (WSJ) says on FOX that he doesn't believe that Pelosi will work with Trump on Immigration because she does not want Trump to have any Legislative victories prior to the 2020 Election Campaign. That makes sense to me.

Last week I think I had mentioned that I moved the oldest daughter to Chicago after landing her first 'real job' after graduating from I.U. in May.

She texted us this morning 'Help me! It's snowing!'

Yep, Darling. You are in the Windy City now.

daddy

Good point, Frau.

I wonder if Malibu does burn down if all the celebs who live there and have always threatened to run away to Canada will finally run away?

My guess is "No", and I loved Rush's story today telling us that Actress Melissa Mylano has offered to donate both of her Kidneys to Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Hell, if the sperm donor wasn't an American citizen then neither of them can run for President either.

I remember the 2000 election well. With voting in the panhandle still going on, the Gore campaign hired a telecommunications company called Telequest to call voters and request they call and complain about a confusing ballot.

I'm sure they're at it again somehow, maybe texting.

Michelle Obama says she'll never forgive Trump over birther conspiracy: memoir

“The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” reads an excerpt, according to the report. “But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks.”

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/michelle-obama-rips-trump-in-upcoming-memoir-report

She should ask her husband & his publisher why they were "birthers". No Republican wrote the promotional booklet. Donald Trump didn't write the booklet.
For 16 yrs. (1991-2007) Barack Obama was marketed as being "born in Kenya" by his publisher.

I know that smell DrJ, so best of luck. When our house almost got burned down 2 August's ago we had to have the windows open due to the Summer Heat but the smell and smoke from the billows just over the next hillside was thick and oppressive and really stunk up everything.

Jeff Carlson, CFA, thinks the DOJ succession plan was in place in early October.

Acting AG Whitaker, Mueller’s Investigation, and the Rosenstein Memo

Very interesting piece, as usual for Mr. Carlson. Here's a nugget:

On Aug. 6, 2017, Whitaker penned an op-ed for CNN that has been widely read, where he discussed the potential scope of the Mueller investigation:

“Investigating Donald Trump’s finances or his family’s finances falls completely outside of the realm of his 2016 campaign and allegations that the campaign coordinated with the Russian government or anyone else. That goes beyond the scope of the appointment of the special counsel.”

Whitaker has been attacked for these views but people should read the article. Whitaker references the Rosenstein interview discussed above and closes with this:

“It is time for Rosenstein, who is the acting attorney general for the purposes of this investigation, to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel.’

Whitaker simply requested that Rosenstein require that the Mueller investigation be held to the confines of its agreed intent.

Whitaker also made another, less-reported comment regarding Mueller, in the summer of 2017, while on CNN:

“There is no honest person that sits in the world of politics, in the world of law, that can find anything wrong with Bob Mueller,” he said, adding that if “something’s wrong with Bob Mueller,” then “our republic is in more trouble than we might imagine.”

Frau Indianerherz

From Jim Miller who used to chime in here:

"Last Night, Seattle Leftists Demonstrated In Support Of Alabama Conservative Jeff Sessions: They would't describe it that way, of course, but they were protesting his firing.

(Unless provoked, I wouldn't mention that oddity to any of them.)"

Btw I agree with what maryrose said about DeWine although I'd express it a bit differently. He's like that beat to hell pair of basketball shoes you find in your closet when you're looking for something to wear while cutting the grass that you don't care about getting stained and are comfortable. Usually after a goof like Katshit, Ohio voters punish the state GOP, as was the case post Taft and Voinovich, by electing true slime like Twitch and Celeste, after which the state subgeniuses come up with someone more palatable. I don't know if Johnnycakes chose not to give his pearly gates endorsement to DeWine or, more likely, everyone told him to stay the hell away, but it worked out well.

An interesting question. Sessions met Kislyak in the official capacity of his office as Senator.

I tried to register for typepad earlier. It kept giving me an error on my hotmail email address.

Curious, I eventually tried I tried to 'login' instead of registering.

No luck.

Frustrated, I eventually tried an old password I used to use for various accounts a LONG time ago. No numerals or special characters.

Voila! I was in.

First thing I did was change the password to something with numerals and special characters.

I first visited here during Plamegate around a 2005 timelime. That woulda matched up when I used that old 'insecure' password.

I'm wondering now if I've had that account for 13 years and forgot about it!

The phrase 'Three Dog Night' originates with Australian Aboriginals. It refers to a night so cold you need to sleep with three dogs to keep warm.

Or as Bill Clinton likes to call it, 'Till Death Do Us Part.'

TC, the world championship (of chess) began today. The American (Fabiano Caruana) played poorly against the current champ, Norwegian Magnus Carlsen, but eventually and painfully scraped a draw.

They're playing in London.
