Michael (fpa P4F) Stop the WitchHunt-Stop the Coup

You can't be making "progress" unless you are raising taxes, don'tcha know?

Foist?

Narciso79

What I was referring to on the other thread:

https://mobile.twitter.com/JordanSchachtel/status/1083112014166327296?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Etweet

daddy

the only thing certain is life is death and hypocritical Krugman columns on taxes.

I wish Octavio Cortes was better looking. If I'm gonna' have to see her on TV 8,000 times a day it'd be nice if she was significantly cute.

Narciso79

Exactly take tulsi gibbard (yes she's a doc brown supporter with an animus against the kingdom. I mean not all can be like ayelet shaked who could be eva greens twin.

Porchlight

I think she's cute enough. I can think of a lot of Congress losers that I'd rather look at less.

Captain Hate

Willowed

Liberal teachers and parents are probably more likely to report perceived bullying of non-Trump supporters now that we are living under a Nazi regime.

Lib teachers are more likely to punish outspokenly conservative children with every tool at their disposal.

jimmyk

She's sort of cute, as liberal women go. It's just hard to get past the stupidity. As someone I think on Althouse said: She's the first member of Congress from the smartphone generation. But having a smartphone doesn't make you ... smart.

Captain Hate

Yes, being reasonably attractive isn't AOC's weak spot.

Buckeye

daddy,

first hit the mute button, then it will be easy to avert your attention:)

daddy

Bezo's new squeeze is cute and all but I don't think she's worth $70 Billion.

Jane

A bob, I was trying to help. She's a drunk, and was ready to kill the guy helping her, and when sober a good person. Her husband died last year, and I loved him. He was a great neighbor and a great guy. So I went over and got to know her. She had terrible stories of what her son was doing with no court approval and that bothered me. Turns out he did have court approval that she didn't know about. 9or can't remember)

In the last 5 days she has gotten drinker every day and remembers nothing. She has called the police 3 times today (remembers nothing) and the third time they took her away in handcuffs. And there is nothing I can do but regret getting involved, which makes me very sad,

Tom R

Barr good friends with Mueller...

Ain't no way Trump is just bumbling his way through this minefield, picking a guy he can't trust for AG. If he did, he'd deserve his fate.

Extraneous,

Is this revelation that Barr and Mueller are good friends moving your needle away from the “Mueller is on a witch hunt” direction and towards the “Mueller is working with Trump” direction?

lurkersusie

New Democratic talking point

Kamala Harris
@KamalaHarris
Holding the American people hostage over a vanity project is certainly not what a leader or President of the United States is supposed to do.

Jane

Not me Tom, I think Trump better wake up.

daddy

Twenty to twenty-five Billion tops, but no way is she worth 5 times more than Trump's border Wall.

Definitely cuter than AOC, but why buy the cow herd...

Narciso79

Sorry to hear that Jane,

matt - deplore me if you must

I need some help fellow JOM'ers. I think I have an idea for a new TV show that would be a guaranteed hit.

I'm calling it "I've Got a Grievance". Every episode the celebrity panel would have a number of questions to try and guess what the mystery guest's grievance is.

I think this is a natural fit for the college and potsmoker sets. Put it on late in the afternoon up against Jerry or Maury or whoever.

"cops took my stash", "orange man bad", "transgender misidentification",

We could pitch it to the execs as a way to atone for their collective guilt.

We could get special guest stars like Alyssa Milano and Oprah and Danny Glover and other Hollywood types who can lecture the audience on how unfair everything is.

Prizes could include a week in Caracas or living with a Cuban family for a month, or a trip to Western China to see the Uigher re-education camps or even an evening at the Trump Tower Moscow in the presidential suite.

The studio audience could dress up in various wacky protest outfits like lobsters or crabs or or illegal aliens or antifas. Monty Hall could lead the bad slogan chanting between commercials. Instead of a green room they could have a safe space.

I'm tellin' ya, it could be a hit!

Narciso79

The example daddy mentioned in the other thread;

https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2019/01/trumpenfreude-hits-sarah-silverman.html?spref=fb&fbclid=IwAR2tb_5riLXL_X9HH4pHK1gjw0rd1udqccwvUD_qZb39KXt4UCDAqi_7aZI&m=1

She had roles in jag and monk, then it's like a some alien creature takes over them

Captain Hate

Securing the border is a vanity project? Is that Kaballah or Willie's DNA talking?

The Infamous Ignatz

Bezos has always reminded me of one of these;

So when I saw a picture of him last year looking like a buff, studly sippy bird, I figured something was up.
Shor 'nuff...

Narciso79

It's the new gravitas talking point.

Did kapucinski do any confirming research re herodotus clains

daddy

Matt,

Top prize might be a ride in The "WokeMobile,"

henry

Daddy, when you said “wokemobile” I was looking for a solar powered manure spreader with frikken laser beams... the real thing was disappointing.

daddy

Narciso,

Sarah Silverman was great in her supporting role as the bitch of a girlfriend of Jack Black's character in "School Of Rock." (Excellent flick BTW)

She was bitchy and unfunny and mean as a snake and she plays it likes it was the role she was born to play. Other than that I have never seen her in anything because she is bitchy and unfunny and mean as a snake, plus she's even less cute than AOC.

who gets to keep the Washington Post, him or her?

The Infamous Ignatz

SS seems a good bit cuter than AOC, though neither one strikes my fancy [and I'm sure the feeling would be mutual].
SS was pretty funny as Monk's lunatic groupie in a couple of episodes.

Captain Hate

He pretty much knew the problems associated with transcribing oral history. What he does effectively is weave what H wrote into his experiences in differing countries. He had a brief vignette, only two or three paragraphs, while in Cairo during Nasser being in charge, of how third world tyrants make use of street people to be their eyes and ears. It's so condensed that I might transcribe it in the Sunday Book thread if my iPad doesn't reboot on me.

Narciso79

She played a very junior officer in the latter seasons of jag and a fan of monk. And she seemed appealing in both except a little cloying on the latter, which was acting on her part.

daddy

Henry,

Here's the pic and comment that accompanied the story when it was linked at Insty:

Spotted outside the exhibition hall yesterday and today was the Wokemobile: Check Your Blind Spots mobile tour sheds light on unconscious biases.

anonamom


Any word from Rich who was dreading Monday?

If that was a week or two ago, he said it turned out to be no big deal.

clarice

Thanks. Whew! anonamom

Another Bob

Sorry to hear that Jane.

Difficult to do the nice/right thing then find out it seemingly didn’t matter.

Narciso79

I think Frank Miller gilded the lily when it came to the portrayal of xerxes. Which Dominic santoro chewed too much of the scenery

Narciso79

They are doing a sequel to big trouble in little China, if they are lucky ot will end up like the tron resurrection or something.

The CGI'd Jeff bridges in the last was truly jarring

Porchlight

Sadly it seems she was already beyond help, Jane. It was kind of you to try.

daddy

The Daily Mail is on the story!

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos 'has been having an eight month affair with a 49-year-old TV anchor, sharing sexy selfies and exotic vacations together' and only announced his $140bn split from wife of 25 years because the fling was to be made public

Jane

Very sad, and very time consuming. I didn't get to be me until about 3;00 every day. Most sad is she isn't going to get to be her, probably ever again. Her son says it's been 20 years. What starts that stuff?

daddy

The rich are different”… The real story behind the famed “exchange” between F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway.

Jane

Just for the record, I know a lot of very cool stories about Bezos as a very cool kid. I know he is a liberal, but his pathway to success deserves a lot of respect,

Narciso79

Oh and in the jeopardy category, Kim Campbell the fmr defense minister and doomed prime minister candidate has a bout of tds.

Buckeye

I like to think my unconscious biases are there to keep me alive.

So far, so good.

daddy

The Enquirer says it trailed Bezos across five states for four months in what it calls the 'largest investigation' in the magazine's history, with its photographer catching the lovebirds 'doing the dirty on their spouses together no fewer than six times in 14 days.'

The magazine claims that the affair has gone on for some eight months behind the back of both Bezos' wife and Sanchez's husband.

The bombshell story is a major coup for the Enquirer and its CEO David Pecker, a one-time ally to President Donald Trump, whose scorn for Bezos' Washington Post has been no secret.

daddy

Has Jonah Goldberg told us that "character is destiny" yet?

henry

Never piss off a guy who buys ink by the barrel, even if you do too.

jimmyk

who gets to keep the Washington Post, him or her?

The loser, presumably.

And while I'll leave it to the distaff JOM to judge, but somehow "sexy selfie" and Jeff Bezos don't resonate.

Jane

Come on. Who here would not want to be that successful, particularly the way he did it.

Narciso79

And who ends up with the 500 million dollar contract with the company?

Captain Hate

Ol' Yeller is aiming both barrels at the Kochs and Gas Chamber.

Kevlar Kid

experiencing drunks get hauled away and put in the system is traumatic. my sympathies.

the emotional toll that display takes on observers is significant. not many are aware enough about how to deal with the aftermath--- we live in a "move on, get over it culture."

picking out the splinters requires a deep-dive on ourselves: what did it remind me of; how do i project myself into the same sitch--- what would happen to me....

JOM is a tough crowd and these kinds of things tend to piss people here off. but, if people want to be useful in the aftermath-- say if the neighbor comes home, some of these suggestions can prove useful....including that rope i was talking about.

FYI.

Catsmeat

Bezos is only "sexy" to the degree that a lot of money and achievement are sexy (which of course for most people is all that seems to be neede)--but not in and of himself, certainly not. Poor thing!

Catsmeat

And I'm sorry, Jane, about your neighbor--and your own pain. But 20 years of this kind of hard drinking means there wasn't much you could do in the long run. You were being kind--that's all that matters, at least as far as your self-judgment should go.

Jane

Thanks Catsmeat. It does break my heart.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

I think it was MissM who posted a tweet about the US paying for a wall in Jordan.
One of the BJG guys gave this link:
https://www.breitbart.com/immigration/2018/03/22/gop-democrats-fully-fund-border-wall-jordanians/

And apparently there is a wall on Mexico's southern border with Central America that was partially funded by the US, but a link was not provided.

Apologies if already posted, busy day.

Jane

Enzo's is sexy in deed, IMO, going all the way back to HS, imo. I'm too old for him however and on his wrong side polically.

Jane

Bezos not Enzo's

MissMarple2

Nytol!!

clarice

Jane, you did the right thing trying to be of assistance, and you did what any good neighbor would do. OTOH none of us is a miracle worker. Unless she wants to stop drinking, she won't. Luckily, it seems it's now in her son's hands.

The Mainstream Media has NEVER been more dishonest than it is now. NBC and MSNBC are going Crazy. They report stories, purposely, the exact opposite of the facts. They are truly the Opposition Party working with the Dems. May even be worse than Fake News CNN, if that is possible!

Gave an OFF THE RECORD luncheon, somewhat of a White House tradition or custom, to network anchors yesterday - and they quickly leaked the contents of the meeting. Who would believe how bad it has gotten with the mainstream media, which has gone totally bonkers!

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Two alligators were sitting at the side of the swamp near the lake.

The smaller one turned to the bigger one and said, "I can't understand how you can be so much bigger than me. We're the same age; we were the same size as kids. I just don't get it."

"Well," said the big gator, "what have you been eating?"

"Politicians, same as you," replied the small gator.

“Hmm.....Well, where do you catch them?"

Down the other side of the swamp near the parking lot by the Capitol."

"Same here. Hmm.... How do you catch them?"

"Well, I crawl up under one of their fancy cars and wait for one to unlock the car door. Then I jump out, grab them by the leg, shake the sh*t out of them and eat'em!"

"Same here." says the big gator. "Do you eat Democrats or Republicans?"

"I eat the Democrats" says the little guy.

"Ah!" says the big gator. "I think I see your problem. You're not getting any real nourishment. You see, by the time you finish shaking the shit out of a Democrat, there's nothing left but an asshole and a briefcase.”

It's called survival instincts like keep your hands away from the buzzsaw and never blindfold yourself in a public place unless there is a pinata in front on you.

jimmyk

It's a slow night on JOM. I wanted to note the passing of Moshe Arens, who helped Netanyahu get into politics.

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Remembering-Moshe-Arens-The-Father-of-Anglo-politicians-576653

He always seemed to be the most decent politico in Israel, not interested in power itself, just in doing right by the country.

It was always sad to me that he has a son, Yigal, who is a complete a**hole leftist, anti-Israel academic out at USC. Needless to say, also virulently anti-Trump.

Narciso79

So everything is what passes for normal now rich?

me agreeing with you here. and wanted to include that i agree with your take on why the "hundreds and hundreds" of agents haven't resigned. the whistleblower programs are broken (take a 15 year veteran with a few kids, a home in NoVa, and a wife with some health problems: he's going to put his fate into the hands of the House and Senate-save that for hollywood), and as i suspect, the coup reached into the executive office of the president, they all saw the writing on the wall well enough.

Rich, trashing the thread at night? I'll ask JIB when he next shows up.

I always thought we enlighten with the night crew. The day crew does the heavy lifting and we come along and find any gems they might have missed.
