Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Tuesday called for reconsideration of a landmark First Amendment precedent, criticizing the 1964 decision that the Constitution creates a higher barrier for public figures to claim libel. https://t.co/iajoH5R4Wl

BREAKING: The FBI has started investigating Jussie Smollett for sending a hate letter to himself in January after he was accused of staging a racial attack with 2 Nigerian brothers this month.

James D.

I haven’t posted anything about this, but any prayers would be welcome for my mom.

She’s been in the hospital the last week due to a bad episode with a blood pressure crash right after dialysis. She was supposed to be discharged to a rehab nursing facility today, but the same thing happened again and she’s back in the ICU. It’s not looking real good at the moment.

James D.,

Prayers offered. My goodness, I wish you had told us earlier! I pray she recovers her health.

*I suspect that a good part of the 130lb weight loss is that having to measure and record everything is a pain in the neck because it turns every meal into chemistry lab. In other words there's all the calories that I don't eat because eating is now annoying.

Part of why the low carb thing works is that people get frickin' sick of bacon and avocados and butter.

It's fun to imagine that Obama bugged the White House before he left, but it's not believable imo. Trump could have blown him and the whole cabal out of the water two years ago if he had evidence of that, and I don't see any reason why he would have waited this long.

Just imagine how effective the tweets and embedded pics of the devices would have been.

I'm not buying it.

unless he wants the drug escapades of his whore daughter, Ashley, reportedly much worse than his non dead son, to be front and center in the tabloids.

Sometimes imagine a scenario and then search out somebody , anybody to corroborate it.
Common sense says no on this.

And think about how hard a couple decent Officers in the Navy had to push to get that useless shit of a Vice President's son booted out. I recall that when one of my bad black troops stole from one of my good black troops, and popped positive to boot, which at the time was a mandatory penalty of being booted out of the Navy, that rotten SOB contacted Congressman Ron Dellums and claimed racism, and the case got tossed and our problem child got reassigned from our Alameda Squadron to a Squadron in Jacksonville Florida. Man did that flame us off, so the pressure on those Naval Officers to overlook Biden Jr's dipshitery must have been enormous, seeing as his old man was the current VP. How truly hated he must have been by his "Shipmates" to have caused them to do what it took to get his useless ass canned for legitimate cause. My bet is a lot more Naval careers than Biden Jr's ended as a conseqence of that nasty slimeball being booted for smokin' crack.

Wray looked like a clueless doofus at his last congressional hearing. Now we have Barr, who's "well respected," who reportedly picks Elaine Chao's deputy as Deputy AG - a guy who has no experience cleaning out rat-infested sheds.

Senator, I knew the Mink Man and Jeff Rosen is no Mink Man.

Here's a bit from Rosen's DoT bio:

During his years at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, Mr. Rosen held positions of Associate, Partner, Co-Head of the Washington, D.C. office, and member of Kirkland’s Global Executive Management Committee, and he litigated cases in courts across the nation. He was also the Chair of the American Bar Association's Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice in 2015-2016, a Public Member of the Administrative Conference of the United States, and a writer and speaker on regulatory, budget, and transportation topics. Among his publications was "Putting Regulators on a Budget" (National Affairs, Spring 2016). He previously served as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center as well.

MM, yes, I saw your good news from the doc visit, and am glad all is well re: your cardiovascular system. But this is what my response was:

No, MM, I have repeatedly posted links each and every time that you've asked for them in the past. There is a massive amount of credible information that you have had access to, if you would simply utilize it.
I am calling you out right now on this "poor me" stuff right now,as it is all your choice, not anything anyone is imposing on you.
You've had ample opportunity to take charge of your health over the past few years, and for some reason, repeatedly chose not to do so.

You've got internet access--you are a very bright woman---it's all yours for the viewing.

McCabe slams Loretta Lynch in new book, says Clinton probe should have gone to special counsel

MissMarple2

anonamom,

I have paid attention to everything you have posted, and I am very appreciative!

Lynch came under fire in 2016 after an infamous tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton days before the FBI decided it would not recommend criminal charges against his wife for her handling of classified information on her private email server. Lynch, reacting to the criticism for meeting with Clinton while the FBI investigated his wife, has claimed she and Clinton only discussed “innocuous things.”

But McCabe said Lynch, after the outcry over the meeting, should have stepped away from the probe – which was code-named "Midyear Exam" by the FBI.

“She should have recused herself from Midyear at that point,” McCabe wrote. “She did not—she made things worse.”

McCabe suggested things would have turned out better had Lynch and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, both appointed by Obama, recused themselves even earlier from the case.

Does anyone else remember when The Handsmaid's Tale was first published? I was reading a lot of sci fi at the time and was even part of a book club that offered it. Even in the pre Internet age the word got out quickly about what an unreadable turd it was; so much so that I was extra careful to send back the form promptly telling the club not to send it.

The book must appeal to really horrible people with bad taste; I usually try to avoid making statements like that but not in this case.

I like how the financial amount Nick Sandmann's Lawyer is going for from the WaPo is $250 Million. From the suit:

19. In order to fully compensate Nicholas for his damages and to punish, deter, and teach the Post a lesson it will never forget this action seeks money damages in excess of Two Hundred and Fifty Million Dollars ($250,000,000,00) - the amount Jeff Bezos, the world's richest person, paid in cash for the Post, when his company, Nash Holdings, purchased the newspaper in 2013.

Pope Francis is, like most leftists, stupid.
What person on planet earth thinks any of the situations he described are avoided because it makes people look like a communist?
Every situation he describes is individual Christians helping out the less fortunate. Not one Christian or pastor in a thousand disagrees with what he said our duties are.

Were he honest, or less stupid, or both, he would note that communism is the forced governmental action of giving alms, not to the less fortunate but to the state. And that the state then throws people in prison, impoverishes them and refuses to give them medicine or have enough beds in the hospital for them.
Sorry Catholics but your present pope is a shit for brains dope who can't follow Christ because he's too damned stupid to know the difference between the things that are God's and the things that are Caesar's.
