Why talk about Trump's negotiations with the Chinese when you can talk about his good buddy Kraft?

There is a reason I have "journalists" at the top of my "list".

Jack is Back!

We are going down to Jupiter/Juno Beach on Monday to play a round of golf at Seminole Club. Be interesting to hear the scuttlebutt at the club since a lot of those old codgers caught in the sting are probably members.

Old Lurker

Jack, I know where you can get a manicure.

Jack is Back!

OL,

Funny that the manicure/pedicure nail salons are all Chinese or Vietnamese owned.

Dry cleaners are mostly Korean owned.

7/11's and Motels, mostly Indian owned.

Diners, Greek owned.

At least it seems that way to me.

Captain Hate

Doesn't Kraft have a significantly younger squeeze since his wife passed? Maybe his wife was the only thing that kept the old goat tethered to reality. Pretty embarrassing if true but still just a gossipy pseudo event for the MFM to fixate on while they ignore the predations of Clenis.

Buckeye

I think Clarice's take on the Jupiter "sting" is probably correct.

I also think that there is more to human sex trafficking than meets the eye.

A lot of prostitutes in 3rd world countries go to great lengths to relocate to the West.

Pay is better.

I am sure this comment won't pass the "politically correct" standard.

clarice

JIB, nothing funny about it--these are low capital outfits and family and friends from the old country help each other into the business.They know how to open and run them , the suppliers, etc. In DC(and I think NY) this is true of most of the best greengrocers--Korean.Often these people pool money to help one member of the pool open shop, When that becomes profitable the recipient kicks in for the nest one.

clarice

clarice,

I mean't funny as in curious:)

Our dry cleaner in Southampton was started by an Armenian family. They owned it for over 50 years, then about 10 years ago they sold it to a Korean family. At one time there were about 8 in the shop. Then 4 broke off to operate cleaners in Hampton Bays, and East Hampton. Just like you wrote.

Jane

Thanks Anonamom. I'm enjoying it quite a bit!

Re Russia, I think we're closer to the period after the time of troubles in the early 16th century when even Poland had taken advantage of them, the time of the sienkowitz novel I mentioned early in the week this was when Sweden was a major power.

Extraneus

Kraft could have had a high-end call girl visit him at his own place or hotel room whenever he wanted. His main crime was going the seedier route, for whatever reason.

And Jane, I wasn't old enough to learn much about the pigeons. That grandfather was kind of estranged from the family and I only saw him a few times.

Yes Putin was able to annex half of the Ukraine and part of Georgia which was more in Catherine's view but still

Captain Hate

Have you read that, narc? He's written a gazillion books, the only one I think I've heard of is Quo Vadis.

Narciso79

I started on a bit if it, that very perceptive Filipino brought it up.

Narciso79

You can kind of see where the polish and Lithuanian enmity begins with Russia

Captain Hate

Yep, any time I need a good jolt of understated rooski hate, I dial my Lithuanian friends.

MissMarple2

Sorry to disappear. I laid down to listen to a bit of Rush's show (podcast) on YouTube and promptly fell back asleep (had been up since 4AM).

MissMarple2

I actually have read Quo Vadis about 3 times. First time in high school, second time when I got it out of the base library in Berlin, and third time about 20 years ago.

You have to get your mind adapted to the flowery language, but it really is a very good book, and amazing when you realize the author was Polish.

"Our dry cleaner in Southampton was started by an Armenian family. They owned it for over 50 years, then about 10 years ago they sold it to a Korean family. At one time there were about 8 in the shop. Then 4 broke off to operate cleaners in Hampton Bays, and East Hampton."

Thomas Sowell wrote a whole book on that phenomenon. He was explaining why each profession did not have tidy racial percentages that matched the ratios in the overall national population.

He did the research, then recounted example after example from various occupations and in various nations as well.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Sowell' point, of course, was that it was not "racism" when the numbers didn't match.

This thoroughly refutes "disproportionate impact" too, if you harbor intellectual honesty, IMO.

Robert Taylor, IIRC, and Deberoah Kerr. Never read the book but I did read Ben Hur.

Also Victor Mature as Demetrius, who starred in the sequel movie Demetrius the Gladiator!

Ben Hur was written by the Civil War General Lew Wallace, who was from Indiana.

When the movie came out with Charleton Heston, they took my entire 5th and 6th grade to see it at the Indiana Theater downtown.

More importantly - I love how she calls them "MY STAFF" - when the money to meet the payroll doesn't come out of her pocket and she doesn't have to put a product to market to sell for profit in order to meet a weekly payroll. What a phony!

Skoot

I find the Muthana case quite interesting, and think it's falls under a JOM "core competency" as it swerves into US v. Wong Kim Ark waters :)

There's a good write up at American Thinker stating it may be used to argue illegals from southern border are hostile enemies so don't fall under birthright citizenship per US v. Wong Kim Ark decision.

However, I agree with Jane that a lower Ct will probably rule she was considered a citizen at one time, so she is still now. Though, I think taking up arms with ISIS is actively renouncing citizenship.

Like I said, It's a good one.

MissMarple2

jimmyk,

No, it doesn't matter but it sure has made people mad!

Narciso79

Well was he a citizen at the time, perhaps permanent resident, but glsigning up with Islamic state is definite disqualifier that's why you have cair to muffle the waters.

I'd let her in, then immediately send her to GITMO. ISIS in Iraq, Syria, and The 'Stan were allied against American forces. They are combatants just like the Taliban. Why is she any different?

MissMarple2

This is an interesting discussion of how to win the 2020 election in a landslide. I am not sure I agree with all of it, but there is some interesting thinking within this thread.

Well you could render from Kurdistan, how did she get access to a lawyer in the first place.

The problem with putting her in Gitmo for life, is we have to pay for it.

Not one dime!

Jane,

You'd rather have her free on the streets of America? She is an enemy combatant. You join ISIS, you are fighting American forces. How do we know if didn't learn any terror skills like bomb-making?

Lynne Patton is moving into New York Housing Authority apartments for the next 4 weeks. She wants to see what families are dealing with, and why their complaints haven't been addressed for years (since way prior to the Trump Administration).

She thinks the money is being spnt "unwisely" (too diplomatic a term if you ask me) since the Housing Authority receives $30 million per week from the federal government to take care of 400,000 residents!

Narciso79

McCabe makes a big point of this fellow spin ghul who was extradited from Italy, had killed two us servicemen In Afghanistan he had fled to Pakistan and somehow ended up in libya until 2011. Who was not tried by military commission but civilian courts

Narciso79

He was in contact with two high profile al queda operative al Iraqi and al libi, the one who wasmt blown up

I agree with Clarice wrt the Kraft kerfuffle.
Anyone who sides with President Trump and has money is fair game to the Dems. They are trying to isolate him and lessen the amount of money he can raise for 2020.
Whoever is the candidate will be the sacrificial lamb.Preident Trump with his record of success is going to bury Them.

Narc, Her father filed in the US, with help from CAIR.

He was a Yemeni diplomat on the losing side of the civil war so claims his employment terminated in Sept 94.

Pompeo's position is, Obama admin stripped of citizenship because the father was still on the "blue list" in Oct 94 when she was born, Hence, her passport was fraudulent.

Narciso79

So he was south Yemeni, wonder where his loyalties with the houthi?

Hubby just returned from his Saturday kayak club paddle. He said,I babysat the 93 year old guy,because he was getting tired and it is really hot today. The British couple in the group also babysat the old guy. Hubby,the old guy and the two Brits were separated in the mangroves from the larger group. The mangroves are dense,like being in a tunnel. So,they finally rejoined the group and a couple of airboats flew by them,causing some choice words back and forth. Some guys in the second airboat mooned the kayakers. Hubby then ended the story with,did I mention I stepped in a fire ant nest? I said,sounds like a fun time! :)

I didnt think Wayne's comments were so outrageous:

I finally read it, and neither do I. He didn't like gay sex in movies, and probably didn't like gays, either. Big deal. Everyone doesn't have to like everyone else. He didn't approve of race-based preferential treatment. So what? Neither do a lot of people.

Anyway, off with his head, just like the Confederates and the Founding Fathers. After the country splits, maybe he can have another airport named after him.

I can't see a Democrat controlled House with all their muzzie members, socialists, etc. ever passing a law like that. That's why she should be treated like an enemy combatant until we can get a House that will have the common sense to pass a law that removes citizenship if you join organizations that sponsor terrorism.
