Did Trump/Mattis set up a “rope-a-dope” in Manjib, Syria? Syrian army tried to enter but American SOF still there.

Good Morning! Yes,one of Gov. LePage's last acts was to certify the ME-2 election. In a parting shot,he called it a "stolen election."

Our Netflix account stops at the end of the month because I cancelled. We watched Black Mirror: Bandersnatch last night. Very strange. I told hubby that it was a dark and weird version of Groundhog Day,without the laughs. If anyone watches it,please explain it to me. :)

Marlene,

The left/progs/Dems, are always coming up with new ways to steal elections. The latest 2 schemes are "ranked voting", and "bundled votes".

I guess the Chicago way isn't sophisticated enough for the new generation of Progs.

I really want to know. What "disinformation" caused Hillary to lose? All I saw was #FakePolls with D+12 samples and 98% negative Trump coverage. So a few Russian Facebook ads overwhelmed the entire US media machine?

It's laughably preposterous.

Goldman Sachs 2019 forecast: Financial conditions and fading stimulus = "we have revised down our US growth forecast for the first half of 2019 from 2.4% to 2%; we continue to expect growth of 1¾% in H2." Also faster wage growth, lower unemployment (3.25%), NO RECESSION.

That is odd, MM. An unexplained polio type disease strikes 40 States randomly in 2014?

Call me a loon, but wasn't that the same year Cruz, Beck, and Obama welcomed thousands of illegal incubators to join the American experience after hopping the border? The same thousands of illegal incubators that were shipped randomly across the nation by bogus charities that were on the government dole?

To paraphrase something attributed to Larry the Cable Guy, if we can trace mad cow disease all the way back to the original source cow, is it really that hard to check up on a few dreamy incubators?

Mrs. JiB was going through some old photo negatives, and glass plates from the 1890's that were in my grandparents possesions. We are just now getting around to them. Here are some photos of a football game being played in Southampton around the 1895-1900 period of time. Note football britiches but no pads and helmets.

We also have a very fragile standing chest/cabinet full of early-music recording cylinders from the initial Edison phonograph eara. They are so delicate that if you touch them they disinigrate into dust.

"BONUS PARANOIA: Suppose Russian Intelligence decided to exploit Hillary's paranoia"

I doubt they needed ANY prompting whatsoever. If wishes came true, I'd love to learn how many other Repub campaigns and Repub candidates have been targeted in the past! I bet this didn't start with Trump.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Iggy,

You're a lumbrjack? I used to watch one of those TV shows on logging. Maybe on the History Channel. Looked to be as dangerous as the Alaska crab catching show except you got squashed instead of thrown overboard.--

It's fairly dangerous on machines like loaders, skidders, dozers. It's extraordinarily dangerous on the ground like fellers, knot bumpers etc.
Overall it's a lot more dangerous than fishing. In fishing all you have to do is not fall overboard and not sink and you're ok.
In logging you are constantly around large vertical cylinders weighing thousands of pounds and rendering them horizontal from point blank range. And there are others around you doing the same. On top of that are guys on giant machines driving up to grab those cylinders and move them and all of it usually occurs on the side of a mountain.
Fishing's for girly men. :)

I didn't follow the Birther discussion that closely, but this gentleman has some clear evidence there are really alarming discrepancies on Obama's birth certificate.
Posted by: MissMarple2 | December 28, 2018 at 09:05 AM

MissM - Watch out! If you start posting 'birther' comments, you're likely to get TK all riled up again - and that isn't good for JOM.

But a word of caution - that writer has some specious claims there. He claimed that "Kenya did not even exist until 1963" although the name comes from a native name for Mt. Kenya.
As Wikipedia says, "The Republic of Kenya is named after Mount Kenya." "The mountain's name was accepted ... as the name of the country. It did not come into widespread official use during the early colonial period, when the country was instead referred to as the East African Protectorate. It was changed to the Colony of Kenya in 1920."
And "In 1920, the East Africa Protectorate was turned into a colony and renamed Kenya for its highest mountain." per the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Even your nom de plume character's author, Agatha Christie, referred to "Kenya" in several of the stories she wrote in the period of the 1920's through the 1950's.

Additionally, the certificate does not use the term 'African-American' as he claims, and oBOzo said he was proud of his *grandfather's* service in WWII, *not* his father's.

Given those major errors, I would not be surprised if the claims re the hospital names have a different explanation that he missed, too.

Thanks btw, for all of the links to interesting stories and breaking news that you post here - I enjoy them very much, and I'm very grateful you post them here for all of us to read.

Jib, yes, the ninth is my district.

Yes, Ds stealing that election. Based on what is COMPLETELY legal in CA, per a bill Moonbeam signed two years ago. So, a CA rep can get seated while our election gets disqualified. (I do understand that states set up the election laws. Still--ironic, no?)

AND the reason the Ds knew to protest the election is the guy who did this works for Ds as well as Rs, so he's harvested for Ds in the past!

Along with OLs 8:49, there's this from yesterday.

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/lame-duck-gopers-limp-home-lame-duck-dems-kneecap-gopers-required-reading-at-the-last-refuge-compa/
... comparing the out-going GOP House majority in 2018 with the out-going Democrat majority in 2010:

“While 63 Democrat seats were lost in the November 2010 election (and six Democrat Senate seats), those exiting Marxists, despite just having suffered the worst defeat in almost 100 years, audaciously –and unapologetically– voted in the December 2010 lame-duck session, to fully fund President Obama’s next two years in office.

“This was done by Speaker Nancy Pelosi specifically to block the incoming GOP wave from upending the priorities of the Obama administration in 2011. That was called the ‘Porkulous’ spending bill; and the Democrat-Marxists didn’t give a snit about how it looked.

“Now, did Speaker Paul Ryan or Senate Leader Mitch McConnell do anything as bold to fund and secure the budgetary priorities of President Donald Trump in this lame-duck?”

Lesson (Just one among many): A One-and-a-Half Party system isn’t a Two-Party system. Go here (link) for the rest.

Ah tk how goes the job search.

Jack! "Mrs. JiB was going through some old photo negatives,"

I am doing the same sort of thing.

By random chance, I came upon three striking pictures: 1) My paternal Grandfather (same name as me) circa 1920 standing ready to go to work about age 25 in a crisp white linen suit. 2) My own father in exactly the same pose circa 1950 also about age 25 standing getting ready to go to work in a crisp white linen suit, then...3) A picture of myself circa 1970 in exactly the same pose at almost 25 standing ready to go to work in a crisp white linen suit.

Now don't you think I HAVE to send those to a photoshop restoration guy to have them cleaned up and combined into one image as if they are all on the same day in the same location?

Extraneus

Infinite density would require either a finite mass existing in zero volume or an infinite mass existing in a finite volume. I'm not an expert but I don't think either of these unpossible conditions is an advertised feature of black holes.

Captain Hate

Lesson (Just one among many): A One-and-a-Half Party system isn’t a Two-Party system.

You're giving the GOP too much credit. Nobody should be surprised by this considering how they marginalized the Tea Party. Now they're pouting because all the RINOs are getting tossed and Scalise has realized all that going along with the commiecrats got him was nearly killed. They still insist on putting RINOs like McCarthy in charge so they won't go quietly.

Old Lurker

Cap'n "In fairness to Gowdy and Goodlatte, Congress is a toothless tiger when it comes to investigating things, "

Sorry, no quarter deserved nor offered by me.

That is a perfectly true observation about the effectiveness of a Congressional Investigation, but those two, especially Gowdy, played the "but it will be different THIS time card" over and over for his own political gain.

At the very least, their going home message should be "Sorry, we looked as best we could and those who assume massive violations of accepted Constitutional rights in the last decade are certainly correct, but alas Congress is just no good at uncovering such things when the government is so divided and the crimes so outrageous at such high levels of government."

anonamom

Marlene, we too watched Black Mirror last night---the "most lighthearted/least dark" episode per my oldest---the PM/pig encounter one. It's about the dark side of technology.

"Mom, you'll love this. It's about all the stuff you hate."
As he sat on the couch next to me, scrolling his Twitter feed.
(He'd already seen that episode, in his defense.)

I think that one episode will be enough for me. Who needs dark?

We're going to watch Friends instead. THE hot thing on college campuses, per my plugged-into-pop-culture guy. And the youngest's GF is binge watching it while she has a break on rotations, so we'll bond over that with them.
I was rather busy when it was on originally- children, practice, household--and not the least bit interested in what single people were doing. Especially as the one episode I did watch with my then elementary-middle school children had a character going out on a first date, with the next shot being the two of them in bed the next morning.

UH UH! Not having that in my house!

Lord, I felt like every day was a battle...

Captain Hate

those two, especially Gowdy, played the "but it will be different THIS time card" over and over for his own political gain.

I'm no special pleader for Gowdy but the one who irritated me the most by promising everything and delivering nothing was Darrell Issa.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Infinite density would require either a finite mass existing in zero volume or an infinite mass existing in a finite volume. I'm not an expert but I don't think either of these unpossible conditions is an advertised feature of black holes.--

I believe the theory is that what they call the "singularity" at the center of a black hole, in fact has no volume and consequently the finite mass contained in zero volume produces infinite density.
Obviously black holes can't have infinite mass or the entire universe's mass would be contained in one black hole, although the density of Ed Markey's head does raise the possibility we are in fact living inside one.

TK - It certainly wasn't my intention to rile you - or anyone - up.

But now, after reading your comments to what I wrote to MissM, I am curious about two things . . .

1) Do you think "Afterb****ers" is a neutral term, with no inherent pejorative sense to it?
2) Where is 'Natural Born Citizen' defined in the Constitution? If not defined there, where is it defined?

Just for the record, I think that "Afterb****ers" is not neutral, and is of a sort with referring to conspiracy theorists re the OBOzo birth certificate as "Birther L**ns".
