Yes Jim, it's always good to see you.

GUS

My Son, is my sounding board for anything beyond the TOUCH TONE PRINCESS phone. He will be 18 on Feb 16, and he is the most precious thing, I could possibly imagine.
He's got an engineering scholarship, and he is a wonderful musician. He's handsome, he's very very smart, he's got a frickin beard at 17, he's 6 ft tall, and he is a LEADER in life, in SCHOOL, as an EAGLE SCOUT, and he BLOWS MY MIND, when he FLIPS the SWITCH and SPEAKS in PUBLIC as necessary.
HE'S MY SON, and I see a LOT of ME in him.

They'll have to bring in more troops to get the ones already there out, raspberries to Syria.

So far only equipment is being removed. Which makes sense in an ordinary retro move.

It will be interesting to see what doesn't make sense economically to remove. Like large ammo dumps, say. Maybe anti-tank weapons. Know what I mean?

We have less than 2000 troops in SYRIA. This whole conversation is a cannard.
The MFM, thought that our TOTAL troop/heheheheh/boots on the ground in Syria, was 500 or less, until POTUS said our ON THE GROUND MILITARY was leaving.

There is no scenario, in which a reasonable, or a reasonably lucid person, would see the withdrawal or The limited number of Troops, mostly "advisers", and none of them ACTIVELY ACTING as COMBAT or INFANTRY, as a bug out, or a stab in the back to our ALLIES. It's CLOWNISH. It is the MFM FULL COMMIE, doing what the FULL COMMIE does.
FRIENDS. We must learn this and understand our own INTERNAL ENEMY.

Obama bugged out TENS OF THOUSANDS of TROOPS from IRAQ, on a moments NOTICE.
zzzzzzzzzzzzz, snore, snorfle, zzzzzzzzzzzz, JERRY RIVERS, shed tears about our BOY'S leaving KUWAIT/IRAQ. They were MEN.
So, what is the MISSION in SYRIA. I'm all for kicking ass, and taking names.
We had less than 200 advisors ETC. What was their mission and end game????
Lastly, AMERICAN AIR FORCES, are still blowing the ISIS (I thought they were ISIL) FORCES to HELL

Did Obama even ATTEMPT THIS???????

I've got a programmed tour of the internet that I do every night after reading JOM. I've noticed recently that I'm finding things before Instapundit.

No Biggie. I guess I've been following him for so long that we have similar interests.

I've noticed that JOM posters find stuff at sites I don't normally visit. Sometimes it takes me a long time to catch up because of all the interesting links.

So I post late. I hope the JOMers who read the overnight stuff find my links useful also.

hoyden

Hey, Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA, I know you know it's the message, not the messenger that we celebrate. The arrival of the Bringer of Weekend Humor into our lives is always a time for celebration with another cuppa.

I appreciate your posting Tito's contributions. I don't read PL comments as often because there's so many. The comment quantity makes JOM seem tranquil in comparison. While I applaud PL's exodus from FaceBoob comments, the consequence is there are way more comments than I have time to read.

I've just finished pizza and my second cup, so now I'm primed for my third. In the meantime I'm writing software to control the signals on my model train. It's amazing how much I can get wrong when I don't completely understand the task.

hoyden

jim nj, I appreciate your link highlights. I also read Instapundit regularly, as well as JOM, for my news content. Even with that level of filtering I can spend 3-4 hours a day reading. I'm a slow reader.

From your earlier link, "Very rare, very strange." Not so rare, and not so strange are husbands who can't hear wives.

The challenge posed regarding the Hewitt Bolton interview is that when the Presidency goes Democrat then any and all foreign policy positions can go null and void. I hope our allies understand and plan accordingly. The Kurds and Israel can depend on Trump's, and in kind, America's, support and loyalty. When a Democrat takes over then all bets are off. Assume the worst.

jim nj

Hoyden, yes, I think that what Trump did with Erdogan was political. We will withdraw our troops from Syria, no problem. Later, now here are our conditions for doing so.

We've met your request. Now meet ours.

Some of this seems to be tied to the upcoming local Turkish elections in March 2019.

I expect Erdogan to talk trash until then.

jim nj

I also think the Democrats here are going to be more anti-semetic and anti-Israel over the next two years.

Because Israel is always the problem in the ME.

Deplorable Don finds significance in this before-and-after.

https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/01/star-democrat-freshman-says-shell-vote.html
Katie Hill was a superstar last summer after Democrats nominated her to face Republican Congressman Steve Knight. The Guardian called her "America's most millennial candidate." And she won.

(Before):
"Hill, D-Agua Dulce, said the only way to end the two-week-old shutdown is for the public to urge the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate and White House to support a House-passed budget resolution that doesn’t include the border-wall funding Trump wants."

(After): ... today, five days later, Hill changed sides ... "I mean, I will definitely, I don’t know if it’s steel, I will vote for some money for physical barriers." So no wall. Just physical barriers.

hoyden

jim nj, "I expect Erdogan to talk trash until then."

Our DNC MFM, spit, will spin the trash talk as proof of Trump's foreign policy failure. The DNC MFM, spit, doesn't need any incentive at all to trash talk Trump's foreign policy.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA, Yep, peeking under the flat rock of modesty, who doesn't enjoy basking in a little bit messenger celebrating?

Agree, coffee and pizza, with extra bacon on top, doesn't get much better.

jim nj

I like they way Ron DeSantis, the Florida Governor, installed a black Democrat sheriff in Broward County. Apparently, despite being of different parties, he likes him. And Broward would vote for a Democrat sheriff anyway in the next election, so this guy is the front runner.

If sheriffs are competent and non biased I don't care what party they belong to.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

What putzes, putting her on a MORNING show! Such clueless exes.
As noted well here at the time, there is NOTHING the least bit warm and fuzzy about that skinny skanky narcissistic (help me out here CH!).

Not just debate question stuff---she didn't even step forward about Ailes til long after it would make any difference to "others," despite her rational.

She'd already alienated any former fans from Fox.
Who did they think her viewers were going to be?
The 80 year olds who watch network TV at nine am didn't know her from Eve.

As you note, Instapundit is almost always days late. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. Someone here posts "48 hours" often when "breaking" things get reported. The delay at Insty lends credibility to things, but not always--that link from there to "RBG resignation tomorrow" Thursday was rather misleading, unless I missed that yesterday.

Jonah's momma's site has more current happenings, as her readers pass things on to her, and Powerline is generally on top of the things which interest them as well.

I left you in the lurch with Carbide Cannons...

My grandpa bought me one in the late 70's. The basic idea is a cast iron barrel with a breech that twist locks in place. There's a small 'coke spoon' and flint striker on the breech. You put water in the barrel in a reservoir and add carbide with the coke spoon. Twist the breech in place. As you know adding carbide to water produces acetylene which ignites when you hit the striker. About like Miss Marple's neighbors.

Yeah, I have no interest in Meygen, one way or the other. When I watched many, many years ago she was really sharp. I didn't have access to FOX to see what others saw after that.

I would applaud anybody who took $69 million from NBC. I'd like to take $69 million from NBC, but I don't have a contract with them.

I suspect they paid the full amount to get her to sign a NDA. I think she learned some more about the NBC shenanigans before she left there.

If I was in charge of her career I'd tell her to retire and enjoy the money, if she wasn't cool with that, I'd turn her into a fire-breathing chastised conservative.

You know, I tried to play nice, but these liberals are evil and sought to strike me down as soon as I left FOX.

As a prodigal daughter, returning to the fold, she could be very powerful if she has learned her lesson.

James D.

So, instead of calling the police, he called 2 friends, who showed up armed. Instead of warning the perps, when the perps showed up the 3 guys opened fire, killing one, wounding one, and one fled. Police are still looking for the 3rd guy.

The police don’t have a duty to protect you. The Supreme Court said so. What were they supposed to do?

I think those three guys should get an award. If I were the President, I’d invite the. To the White House and praise them to the skies.

From the learn something new every day file.

Last year I bought a Nikola Tesla pillowcase on eBay.

When I inserted the pillow the case had a lot of extra length. A few weeks ago, after buying another memory foam pillow, I saw that there were other sizes offered, queen and king. The queen size looks like it would fit perfectly so I've ordered it. Has anyone told Bernie Sanders that we have so many pillow size choices?

Here you go, daddy:

OSLO, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Rapid shifts in the Earth's north magnetic pole are forcing researchers to make an unprecedented early update to a model that helps navigation by ships, planes and submarines in the Arctic, scientists said.

Compass needles point towards the north magnetic pole, a point that has crept unpredictably from the coast of northern Canada a century ago to the middle of the Arctic Ocean, moving towards Russia.

"It's moving at about 50 kilometres (30 miles) a year. It didn't move much between 1900 and 1980, but it's really accelerated in the past 40 years," Ciaran Beggan, of the British Geological Survey in Edinburgh, told Reuters on Friday.

Those three defending an empty house. They may have been within the law by shooting home invaders, but I think a warning shouted before they pulled their triggers would have been a better tactic.

A second or a split-second before firing, after the warning, would justify them.

No warning, beforehand, leaves them open to prosecution.

You should be able to kill home invaders, if it's a surprise, and your options are limited, i. e., kill or be killed.

Waiting, when you think a home invasion is imminent and you are armed, and then you fire first without warning, seems to be a stretch of the law.

But defending what may have been a rental property. Not knowing if the intruders were armed, or not. That's really going to test the laws of self-defense and standing your ground.

No one should rally to their side.

1. Must be in an immediate and unavoidable threat of death or grave bodily harm,

4. Must use only the minimum force.

Jim, the shooters weren’t defending themselves from anything. They were lying-in-wait.

It sounds like Daniel Borden got a raw deal. Four years for participating in a so called beating of DeAndre Harris.

Harris served eight years for attempted murder but was let out by Gov. McAuliffe. Harris was roaming around the riot with a metal flashlight and some guys decided to stop him from beating on people and the DA turned it into a hate crime. That's what it sounds like anyway, because black people are relentless victims of white racism everywhere all the time that explains everything.

Another Bob

“They have named the storm”

I hate with white-hot-passion the Weather Channel slicks who started this nonsense of naming snowstorms. They hype perfectly normal events for no reason other than to call attention to themselves, and are making an environment where real warnings will be ignored.

(There’s their globull warming hucksterism too.)

jim nj

Yeah, it just disgusts me because I think they took a perverted view of the law.

I support the Second Amendment, the right to stand your ground, to defend your family or home from armed invaders.

None of that seems to apply here.

I think those home invaders ping ponged around for sure but Don Pendelton never used that term in any of his Mack Bolan books.

They make bean bag rounds for civilian sale. Some more like those skoosh balls. In that scenario I'd be willing give those thieves the surprise of their lives and some pain they wouldn't soon forget. I'd be prepared to use deadly force though. And I'm losing sleep for my own purposes tonight, not some generic trashy shitheads.

jim nj

MM,

Yes, you want to help people who want to transition. Many are willing to work if you provide housing, benefits, etc. that allow them to work for cheap wages.

They are no longer homeless, but the benefits allow them to survive at a low poverty level. A steady work history allows them to apply for better jobs.

A desire for a better life can move them into the mainstream, even if they are working for the DPW.

On the inquiry earlier in the thread on who Robert P George is, in my world he is a major component, via the American Principles Project and Witherspoon Institute, of the false narrative on education in a most coordinated premeditated fashion. The author of the book to reimagine the constitution in a progressive manner, Sanford Levinson, thanks George in his Acknowledgments.

He regularly does panels with cornel west on their shared visions and he works with communitarian sociologist Amitai Etzioni on a series of books on desired cultural change. Henry will recognize the significance of his being a board member of the Bradley F.

That AEI Values & Capitalism program works with many of the nation's religious affiliated colleges and universities on what kind of economic system Jesus would have wanted. Fits right into the MH vision unfortunately. Joy Pullmann from The Federalist also works with that AEI group. I get invited to their conferences in case anyone hopes I am exagerating.

Mitt Romney’s daily schedule -

7am - wake up, look in the mirror for an hour.

8am - $200 cup of coffee

9am - apply 20 lbs of hair gel and comb hair exactly 400 strokes per side.

10am - see what Trump tweets so he can take the opposite view.

11am - 10pm - act like a dick.

Lyin’ James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter S and his lover, agent Lisa Page, & more, all disgraced and/or fired and caught in the act. These are just some of the losers that tried to do a number on your President. Part of the Witch Hunt. Remember the “insurance policy?” This is it!
