loving this weather pattern. it's like the old days here. rain all winter.

Kev,

We landed in Oakland last night to the south, on Runway 12. That happens only about once a decade, but the tail winds were out of limits for landing on Runway 30, so ATC had to swap everything around in the Bay from the normal landing patterns. Runway 12 is used so infrequently that it doesn't have any Category 2 or Category 3 capability, just a Cat 1 ILS, and the glide slope is a very odd -2.75 degree downslope rather than the very standard -3.0 degree glide slope used at almost every other large Runway in America. Was raining heavy on final so glad to see the Bay get some of that.

In more political grandstanding, Governor Gavin Newsome "reinstated" the individual mandate in California. The state will penalized uninsured Californians (but not illegal migration squatters, obviously).

Other highlights of Newsome's "taking power" is the declaration that California government has "moral power." (Dontchoo needa hab etix to have mole power, Ese?)

"Creating a state-purchasing program for prescription drugs used in Medi-Cal. “We will use our market power and our moral power to demand fairer prices for prescription drugs,” Newsom said."

daddy,

OAK was a mess the last few days. glad you got in okay.

was the AERO-Beaner airline still on the tarmac oozing mexxykin pilot righteous indignation? that was a fiasco. the Americanos onboard bumrushed the door to get the passengers sprung after nearly 4 hours of no air, water, or first aid for the elderly and sick.

Should your point be interpreted to mean Trump not only knows there is tangible evidence of the crimes of the Obama cabal but he also knows things are going on behind the scene to bring them to justice?

You can interpret it any way you want but my intentions were to state that people like me need to know that progress is being made behind the scenes, preferably by making things very transparent as was promised.

Yeah...amplifying only Russia is sketchy.
Iran, Pakistan, China???...any calls picked up from them? Any unmasking?

and even with Russia, were any Democrats picked up & unmasked? There was bound to be some calls made to set up Bill's speeches.
Anyone listen in on those?

narciso had mentioned something that got the hamsters turning the rusty wheels in my head on one of the overnight ... if my narcisolator is calibrated, his point was some of these political intelligence firms specialize in sanctions busting and export control busting. we have sanctions and export controls on Russia, but i can think of a few other countries that also applies too ... it seems it isn't so much about russia, but the back-office corruption of sanctions and export controls. anyway ... i've stocked up the fridge for snow and working on beer and my own 4D theorems.

Apparently Sperry and others think that Horowitz and Huber should have interviewed people who could provide evidence against the cabal, which seems logical.


Who are these people Sperry claims to have interviewed? Page and Papadopoulos are two options but what evidence of criminal activity could they provide about the FISA abuse scandal that Horowitz/Huber don't already have?


The Uranium One FBI whistleblower Campbell is mentioned as someone Horowitz/Huber haven't interviewed yet but why would they interview him? The Horowitz IG investigation has nothing to do with Uranium One.

I don't think publicly notifying the members of the Obama cabal of the status of the investigations collecting evidence to indict them and possibly sending them to prison is a smart tactical move. Fairly certain that is what would happen if Trump's Swamp draining actions were transparent to the entire world.

It's been two years and nothing's happened. If everything's so hush hush, why is Trump tweeting about it? Sometimes when it looks like nothing serious is happening, it's because that's what's really going on. I'd prefer that it was otherwise but every day makes that more difficult to take on faith.

IOWA GOP SENATORS CONDEMN STEVE KING

Iowa Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst are the latest Republicans to distance themselves from Iowa Rep. Steve King, as both condemned their fellow Iowa Republican for his comments on White supremecy.

During an interview with the New York Times last week, King claimed he didn’t understand why “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” were offensive teams.

“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” King asked. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”

Ahem.

“I condemn Rep. Steve King’s comments on white supremacy; they are offensive and racist – and not representative of our state of Iowa,” Ernst said on her Twitter account. “We are a great nation and this divisiveness is hurting everyone.”

Grassley also condemned King’s remarks to Axios’s Jonathan Swan.

“I find it offensive to claim white supremacy,” Grassley said. “I will condemn it.”

King’s comments have been widely condemned by Republicans in Congress, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who called King’s language “reckless.”

henry - Thanks for the explanation about your hearing situation. Even though I was going for the cheap 'n easy joke about spouses, it was interesting to read what you experience, and how you have managed to find a 'workaround' that enables you to hear what you would otherwise miss.

Explains why there were what sounded like both serious and joking responses to the same post.

Thanks for taking the time to explain your perspective - I really appreciated it.

Btw - When I was in college, I volunteered to be a lifeguard to help a school for the deaf who had lost their regular lifeguard. I had studied ASL, and could communicate on a basic level using it, and thought it would be a good chance to improve my skills while helping them.

Let me tell you - no one enjoys the simple joy of splashing water and jumping into a pool more than deaf kids. And somehow, the water *magically* rendered those mischief makers completely unable to understand *any* sign language, or simple gestures, or to even read a clock when they were enjoying their chance to let loose in the swimming pool.

Talk about a bunch of uncontrollable little hooligans. Whew, what a handful.

Playing catch-up, but this:

the main reason Rosenstein appointed Mueller SC was to protect Trump from McCabe who was leading the bogus investigation.

is preposterous. McCabe has been gone almost a year, but Mueller is still grinding away, indicting Russians, extracting guilty pleas from Manafort, and showing no sign of closing up shop, or that he has any interest other than in people connected with Trump.
