Fair point narciso. I think Lee knew a KO was needed if the Confederacy was to survive before the industrial strength and population of the North ramped up. In the Pacific Yamamoto knew that lesson too, hence Pearl Harbor, where missing the carriers made his war lost on day one. Midway was a consequence of that miss.

To close out the week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) indicated that Trump could expect no assistance from the Senate in overcoming the deadlock over the funding of the wall and reopening the government.

Who did Mitch appoint to take over Flake's and Hatch's seats on the Senate Judiciary Committee?

Anonamom, you wanted instapot recipes--here are some from Sur laTable
nstant Pot Lemon Chicken with Green Olives



Serves: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 lemon, sliced into thin rounds

Turn the Instant Pot on to [Sauté]. Heat the olive oil. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season with the salt and pepper. Add half of the chicken, skin side down, and cook until the skin is golden brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. Flip the chicken and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining chicken.

Add the garlic to the pot and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the onion, lemon, olives, and thyme, and cook, scraping up the brown bits from the bottom of the pot, for 2 minutes. Lay the chicken on top. Press [Cancel].

Lock the lid. Press [Manual] and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Use the “Quick Release” method to vent the steam, then open the lid.

Serve the chicken with the onions, lemon, and olives, and sprinkle with the parsley.

To the Instant Pot, add the orange juice, chipotle, adobo sauce, garlic, and onion. Stir to combine. Add the pork. Lock the lid.

In this step, you have the option to slow-cook or pressure-cook (don’t do both!). To slow-cook: press [Slow Cook], leave the vent open, and cook on "More" for 8 hours. To pressure-cook: press [Manual] and cook on high pressure for 1 hour 15 minutes. Use the "Quick Release" method to vent the steam, then open the lid.

To make the salsa, in a medium bowl combine the pineapple, onion, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, and salt.

Fill the tortillas with the shredded pork and top with the salsa.

Mark Steyn raised some hackles amongst the ladies, of course, but I seem to remember a catfight over Karl Rove as well.

bubarooni

The Kurds problem is their 'homeland' exists in 5 nation states:

Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Iran and Armenia

I think the only way to unite those 5 countries in a common cause would be to present them with the possibility of a 'Kurdistan'.

My sympathies lie with the Kurds but I'm not sure that is row for the U.S. to hoe.

rich

liquidated -> liquidating

bubarooni

I think that's basically true rich. I think the Brits referred to it as "Mandatory Iraq".

The Brits and the French drew the lines for most ME nations after they booted the Ottomans in WW1.

Those lines were drawn on the national interests of the Brits and Frenchies 100 years ago instead of the interests of the people who resided in those areas.

Hey, it happens when your building empire.

Things change though, empires rise and fall and those peoples are stuck with the lines.

Peace in the ME will be achieved when those lines are redrawn.

Nation States have a lotta sticking power these days and there is no one in that area with either the will or means to redraw them.

The entire ME will supply lots of hijinks and capers until a local champion who has the will and means to redraw those lines appears.

Because so many non-local interests are involved it's probably another 100 years before it all gets sorted out.

Rear Admiral explains moving the SS Cuck home base to Port Omydar:

Calling all psychologists: When things are falling apart, isn’t it a common defense mechanism or avoidance strategy to hope things will get better if you just go to a new place? “Let’s do the meeting with Hill leaders in the Sit Room!” “Let’s have a staff meeting at Camp David!”

Related to nothing, a series recommendation.

"Life on Mars" (UK)...it is a 2 season show.
One of the characters, DCI Gene Hunt is WONDERFUL. Refreshingly non-PC.

The story continues with the "Ashes to Ashes" series. It is 3 seasons.
It brings a final resolution to the whole "Life on Mars"-"Ashes to Ashes" storyline.

A retro Brit. detective show with a twist.
Very good. DCI Gene Hunt is fantastic.

The Brits and the French drew the lines for most ME nations after they booted the Ottomans in WW1.

The best read on this is "The Peace to End all Peace" by Fromkin. Like Tuchman in "Guns of August" he starts out around 1910, in this case depicting both the decay of the Ottoman empire, and the conflicting interests of the British, French, and Russians over the Middle East.

One thing I remember is how the British opponents of Churchill talked about him the way #NeverTrumpers talk about Trump: Mad, reckless, dangerous, etc. They were only too eager to blame him for Gallipoli, even though it wasn't his fault.

rich,

I disagree. The child porn and child trafficking arrests have been numerous and reported all over the country. You are talking everything from the Catholic Church to the American Gymnastics Association to teachers and charity groups.

I pay attention to that stuff, so I know for a fact that there have been huge increases in the numbers caught.

As far as the drug cartels, catching them and their money-laundering operations is more complicated, but Trump is absolutely committed to it. If you listened to his press availability on the way to Camp David he brought drugs up several times.

Also, there was that EO which said that certain crimes (drug cartels being one) would have their assets confiscated by the US government. It seems to me that this would indicate that the government intends to reap some financial benefits from arrests and convictions.

on the JFJ jr thing, I recall about 4-5 years back posting here that i had just flown with a guy who IIRC had previously worked as an Instructor at FSI (Flight Safety International) and I asked him if he ever knew JFK jr. He replied that he did and that he was disliked by the Instructors beccause he had an attitude that he did not have to put out any effort to study or prepare, that it would all be handed to him on a silver platter, and that ultimately he would be given his ticket and ratings because of who he was and thats the way it worked out. He said he was not surprised one bit at JFK jr killing himself, nor was anybody else at the Training Facility who had dealt with the young prince of Camelot. I'm on iPad at the Library so I can't search for it but that was pretty much the gist. i think the more interesting question is why ABC is doing this "turd-polishing" revisionism and I think there is validity in the assumption that the Media is trying to give pseudo-Kennedy Beto a boost, in the same corrupt Media way that they ran all those stories from unnamed sources of Trump supposedly sayng the E'ff word in order to mitigate damage for that Dem Muslim gal saying Mutherphucker. Samo, Samo.

Anything new from the BBC, the Guardian, or Sky News as to why that White Racist shot that 7 year old Black girl in Houston?
