Jussie Smollett Cries in First Interview Since Alleged Attack

Days after the story broke, Smollett gave a concert at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, telling the crowd that if he did not perform, it would be a victory for the assailants. “I had to be here tonight, y’all. I can’t let the motherfuckers win,” he said as concert-goers which included Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and filmmaker Lee Daniels looked on. “I have so many words on my heart. The most important thing I have to say is thank you so much and that I’m okay,” he said. “I’m not fully healed yet, but I’m going to. And I’m gonna stand strong with y’all. l will always stand for love. I will never stand for anything other than that. Regardless of what anyone else says, I will only stand for love. And I hope that you all will stand with me.”

FORMER OBAMA AIDE SAYS GREEN NEW DEAL ROLLOUT BLUNDER PUTS CLIMATE FIGHT AT RISK

“[The FAQ release] was a monumental screw up. It is putting the potential for a robust climate action at risk,” one anonymous source within the Obama administration told Axios Wednesday morning.

The source noted how a botched document about the GND posted on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s website on Feb. 7 helped Republicans change the narrative. The resolution, which several potential presidential candidates supported at the time, effectively avoided hiccups, the person said.

“The resolution itself did a great job of avoiding these controversies and finding a way to appeal to a broad spectrum of Democrats,” the person added. “But because the FAQs drove the narrative, McConnell sees it as a way to hurt vulnerable Democrats and embarrass the 2020 field.”

A bunch of republicans should abstain, say that they cannot take the bill seriously and so will not vote on it.

Someone described Brent Bozell as a NeverTrumper. I don't think that's true. He was very anti-Trump before the nomination, but once Trump got that, as far as I'm aware he's been a Trump defender. His writing seems closer to Kim Strassel's than to any NeverTrumper. Lots of reasonable people (as we can see here) can disagree about this deal.

The hiccup being the document itself, it's like the ark dont open it.

Ok, question about illegals and catch-and-release: could Trump find a way to take away an H1B visa for every illegal who is “paroled” and released, and only if the parolee shows up for their immigration hearing does the visa get released?

It would sure give the Chamber of Commerce types some pause...

Part of the problem with the propaganda is that they have successfully tarred Trump as being against all immigration, not just illegal. If he were to say “ok Congress has allowed X number of immigrants. So we will have X number total and every illegal takes a spot away from a law-abiding legal immigrant. If you are in favor of illegal immigration then you are against legal immigration.”

Clandestine US Program To Sabatage Iranian Missiles, Rockets Revealed In Leak To NYT

Thanks to another felonious leak of classified information to the New York Times, we now know that the Trump administration has accelerated a secret American program aimed at sabotaging Iran's missiles and rockets by sabotaging their supply chain with faulty components, "according to current and former administration officials."

The success of the effort is unknown, however the Times suggests that Iran's two recent satellite launch failures "within minutes" may be due to the previously undisclosed program.

Jack is Back!

So, it has gone from 86F yesterday to 58F today. Almost whip-lash differernce.

I know Trump promised a wall in his campaign but now I think he is using the Dem's refusal to actual fund a wall, and other immigration ruses, to make them the campaign issue for 2020, while he finds the money elsewhere and builds it. Of course, it all has to survive the 9th circuit Hawaiian Judge gambit. And I don't think our Solicitor General will be able to convince Roberts to act on any appeal what with his public tete-a-tete with Trump.

Like with knucle-headed Cuomo on Infantacide, the Dems never realize it is too late to find a ladder to climb out of the hole they dug.

Justin Fairfax’s accuser gets standing ovation at #MeToo event

The Scripps College professor didn’t directly address her allegation against Fairfax, but did talk about students who’d confided in her about their own assault experiences, adding that, “sometimes you have to lead by example. No matter how hard it is.”

“When women and survivors start comparing notes — that’s when the lightbulb goes off,” she told the crowd, according to a CBS report. “This has been happening to everybody. That’s the most important part of #MeToo.”

Tyson also recalled watching Christine Blasey Ford testifying with her own sexual assault allegations during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing last year.

“As she shook, we shook with her,” she said. “As she told her story, we felt the pain she so visibly demonstrated.”

Trump could have gotten rid of Sessions for 2 years and chose not to. Why? It's not like he didn't fire anyone else during that time.

Because there would have been a grueling confirmation battle, assuming Grassley would have scheduled one and I've read that he pledged not to do so. Trump complained about Sessions recusal frequently; Tom claimed it was misdirection but I think the history speaks for itself.

Perhaps the 4D explanation is that Sessions passed asset forfeiture to ultimately use against the swamp; maybe that might happen but thus far it's just a crummy policy waiting to be misused against innocent people.

daddy

Thanks, guys. Never heard of it.

Thanks to daddy, I now know there's a difference between copse, chase, and spinnies.

Copse: A copse is a thicket of bushes or a small stand of trees. A copse of trees can provide a good hiding place during a game of hide-and-seek.

If you go to your local garden shop and ask about how to take care of your copse, you may get some blank stares, as it's not a word you'll find much in everyday use. The word first appeared in the late-sixteenth century, as a shortened form of coppice, a word still used in British English, referring to an area with trees or shrubs that are periodically cut back to the ground so that they grow back thicker.

Chase: a tract of unenclosed land used as a game preserve

Spinnies:
Spinny \Spin"ny\, n.; pl. Spinnies. [OF. espinaye,espinoye, espinei, espanoi, F. ['e]pinaie, from L. spinetum a thicket of thorns, fr. spina a thorn. See Spine.] A small thicket or grove with undergrowth; a clump of trees.

The downs rise steep, crowned with black fir spinnies.
--C. Kingsley.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Asked by reporters about antisemitic statements made by Omar and fellow freshman congresswoman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Hoyer replied, “Congresswoman Omar apologized,” adding that “the real test is the actions on the floor.”

“We need to treat one another with respect and without language that would refer to any kind of interpretation of bigotry, prejudice, or hate,” he continued. “We’ll continue to pursue and advocate for that, and very frankly, if that doesn’t pan out, there may be further action we would take.”
