Ralph L.,

I have no idea. Maybe clarice knows.

Ralph L

She was totally rattled when she was asked about Smollett!
From the way she turned around, I think her staff had tweeted behind her back. No Collusion!
Witch Hunt!

New Deputy AG Jeff Rosen.
Half Sessions/Half Rosenstein ?
Is this a Billy Barr joke ?

Agree, which is why I bring this over:

This is audio of Gorka interviewing Sara Carter. Worth the 11 minutes of your time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=qf9VIZj2hNM

Among other things, at the end they talk about why the unmasking investigation has been stymied: Obama converted en masse political appointees into civil servants so that they couldn't be pushed out. They are the "fifth column that is countering, that is slow rolling the congressional oversight function that is required by law of the intelligence community," says Gorka. Carter is very determined to stay on them, and she seems convinced that this will blow up within the year. I hope so.

keto happiness is never having to use half&half. The only half you need is heavy cream in half gallon containers. Go to the store when you are down to your last half gallon.

No doubt Sara Carter will stay on them if she doesn't catch early onset rigor mortis.

anonamom

janet's 7:59 is certainly thought provoking. Those resignations---caught Glenn Reynold's attention yesterday.

Willie's GF caught Professor Althouse's eye when she appeared totally blindsided when asked about Smollett the other day. Insty linked to this post of hers, which has the video so you can see for yourself how totally unprepared she was to be questioned (which I think in and of itself disqualifies her for POTUS. At a minimum, indicates what role she thinks the press should play in her campaign!)

>i?At a minimum, indicates what role she thinks the press should play in her campaign

Well, when she's got MSM reporters giggling along with her on a shopping trip and picking outfits for her to try on, you can't really blame her for thinking the press' role is to be her lapdog.

Narciso79

Yes I thought, exactly that segment.

MissMarple2

https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2019/02/19/jessie-smollett-letter-brothers-attack/

Local Chicago CBS station reporting that SMollett was involved in producing that hate mail letter. I believe that puts him in the feds' bullseye.

MissMarple2

Smollett's sisters campaigned for Kamela Harris. There are numerous pictures of him with Harris, too.

Janet's friend did a good job of connecting the dots. I think it is going to come out pretty soon.

Jane

John Solomon says he’s coming out with a blockbuster today. It doesn’t appear to be out yet.

Rich Lowry has been in the Trump camp for over a year. Maybe 2.

Nothing wrong with a few strawberries to spice up your heavy cream.

"Rather than actually being about helping queer people around the world, Trump's campaign looks more like another instance of the right using queer people as a pawn to amass power and enact its own agenda," writes @mathewrodriguez.

The New York Times reporting is false. They are a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!

=============================

I have a suspicion that the President has some stuff on the New York Times.

Jane

I’m so sick of the Smollett case. Throw him in jail and be done with it. Or torture him until he confesses it was Kamila’s idea.

Then string up McCabe until he reveals all the elected Dems in on the Russia scam.

Barr starts his job tomorrow. High hopes!

Porchlight

It is interesting that state's attorney Foxx, FOK (Friend Of Kamala), has recused herself from the Smollett (also FOK) case.

https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/comments/asi8a3/breaking_kamala_harris_is_involved_in_the/

It's Chicago, so Idk if any of this will see the light, BUT if Rahm or other powerful Chicago people decide to back someone other than Harris for 2020....

Buckeye

Now we know why Smollett didn't want to give up his phone.

henry

The real question is “did Moochelle set this up?”

MissMarple2

Porchlight,

A message from Chitown:

"The question that will go unasked is who was behind trying to create a Presidential Message at the expense of Chicago cops? With someone's full consent during the last few weeks of a mayoral race?

Who has that kind of clout in the African-American and Gay Community to try and pull that off?

Very short list."

Marlene

Good Morning! Speaking of slicing strawberries,the Florida strawberries should be arriving in your grocery stores up north. Of course,I can go to the farmers market and get them fresh from the field. The quart I just sliced had some strawberries as big as my fist. :)

Captain Hate

I’d also say that the Medicare rules are designed to limit care and choices, which won’t be a surprise to anyone here.

Maybe I've got a doctor that's really good at negotiating the ins and outs of the rules because I don't feel limited on anything.

California now wants to scale back their already failed “fast train” project by substantially shortening the distance so that it no longer goes from L.A. to San Francisco. A different deal and record cost overruns. Send the Federal Government back the Billions of Dollars WASTED!

Porchlight

MM, Chitown's message is interesting. Perhaps Barry might be calling in some favors for Slow Joe?

Marlene

Yesterday I was at the dentist (again) and while waiting,a guy came in and said to the receptionist,I need a tooth pulled now! She explained that he would need an x-ray and he said,I don't want an x-ray! The poor guy was frantic (a very verbal New Yorker). She talked him down,explained the insurance procedure,he called his dentist in NY to have files sent to FL and he's having his tooth extracted today. She was very calm and competent and my experience is that if a doctor's or dentist's office has an excellent front office,the insurance and other paperwork is easy.

jimmyk

I don't feel limited on anything.

CH, I hope you don't have to find out what happens if you have a serious and complicated health issue.

anonamom, from last night's discussion and "Undoctored." I haven't read it (just excerpts), but my issue with that is the extremism. Eliminate all grains, 100%. Forever. Even if you cut back 90% you're a failure. Even if you cut back 100% for 6 months and then you have one cookie, you'll gain back all the weight you lost. You can't go out to a restaurant because who know what's in the food.

Maybe that's necessary for people with serious health issues. I consider myself pretty healthy and would just like to stay that way. I can't see upending my life.

peter

I think if I polled most JOMers, especially those who have read Michelle Obama's Princeton thesis, most would say that her memoir was 100% ghost written. Here's a little letter from Moochelle explaining how important book clubs to her. What a phony industry the publishing world has become.

MissMarple2

Porchlight,

Fascinating clues, for sure!

ChiTown says if things keep happening in the Smollett case, he wouldn't be surprised to see Harris suspend her campaign.

Another clue is that sudden appearance of Michelle Obama on the preferred candidate polling.

MissMarple2

peter,

She got a HUGE advance for her memoirs. I don't remember how much, but it seemed far in excess of what would be expected from sales, even if her book was a best-seller.

I don't know much about the publishing business, but it seems to me a high number are privately held, which means they don't have to file reports for shareholders.

Captain Hate

I think Kabbalah's toast already this week especially considering that if she overcomes everything to win the primaries, she wouldn't be facing a GOP doormat in the general; rather someone who would gleefully point these out multiple times.

jimmyk, I can only report on what I've experienced.

It's nothing to do with NY's high taxes and spending, and progressive income tax, it's all Trump's fault for taking the subsidy away.

I trust Sandmann's attorneys to know what they're doing than AllahSoyBoy.

I am a big fan of AllahP but I think he is wrong-ish about this. $250MM won't happen but this is a high-powered law firm clearly working on contingency. They didn't need the publicity - they took this with a payday in mind.

I would not normally link a Guardian story but this one is worth while since it is AI + Elon Musk + Reid Hoffman in re: GPT2 text generator. Mrs. JiB had a De Staandard interview on in Dutch where the guy was explaining how they fed 8K pages of text into the program and it spit out a single page of continuing dialogue.

CH and JimmyK

I think the biggest determining factor when on Medicare is the willingness of the Doc's to accept Medicare rates, which are crappy and getting crappier.

Since all my Docs are Ohio State Medical system guys, the decision is made, and I haven't had any issues, yet.

All of Mrs. Buckeye's Docs are private practice guys. I suspect we will have some issues when she goes Medicare in December.

MissMarple2

I believe I have mentioned here before that when I was in college the Big Scare was a coming Ice Age, and that somehow it changed until by the mid-80's it had become Global Warming, which mystified me as I hadn't been reading all of the professional ppaers during that time period.

This guy has cataloged a bunch of headlines and news articles about what was being said to scare people in the 70's and then into the 80's. This is a VERY good article if you have someone trying to argue with you about "settled science."

Captain Hate

Btw, I owe TK a partial apology for not adequately noting what he reported; the urine tinged comments from the glorified paralegal did in fact take happyfeet to task for not defending the inarticulate dunce in the comments at PJM and Instapundit. I somehow overlooked that howler among his rationalizing his traffic dropping like his IQ because happyfeet was driving his few remaining "friends" away. It also revealed that his deadenders send him messages complaining about other commenters like junior high school girls having their first periods.

I also sent an email to PJM telling them they were dumber than Red State for adding that oaf to their lineup. Another "smart online conservative site" repeating the same mistakes.

In case you weren't aware, Someone dug up an old John Wayne Playboy interview from 1971 and the SJW's on Twitter got all outraged:

I'm stealing the observation that the outrage was so great that John Wayne will never find work in Hollywood again.

Yes, Buckeye, my doctors are part of the University Hospitals system with a fleet of bean counters scrutizing all regs to create navigation charts.

Great news, Rocco. I think my Pater Noster put him over the top:)

Clarice's 10:18 is a howler. When I lived in San Franciso, you'd run into everyone of the article's stereotypes at Whole Food. They are literally batshit crazy people.

Old Lurker

A-mom via James:

"Anonamom losted last night that doctors have to spend too much time following government and third party regs to actually read, and based on our experience with my mom this last week and the Medicare rules the hospital has cited for most of their decisions, that’s totally true.

I’d also say that the Medicare rules are designed to limit care and choices, which won’t be a surprise to anyone here."

Adding to everything A-mom says, as the father of a daughter in the midst of it all, I was not surprised, but was nonetheless deeply concerned when I read the story below, yesterday. Bottom line is that doctors have the highest suicide rate of all professions and not the least of contributing factors is the huge quantity of time docs have to spend fighting the computerized records monster. My daughter confirms the "typical 100 hours per week at the hospital" and says that does not count the prep time for presentations etc that are also expected. ("rules" limiting their weeks are a joke they all say, and complaining is the fastest way to the bottom of the barrel.) Her mother and I have both noted with concern how close to the surface are her tears these days.

And she's a rock star so imagine the others.

I heard that some universities are now offering degrees in "Medical Management and Accounting". You watch, those skills will out earn the Doctors' practicing medicine or surgery. That is topsy-turvy our whole legislative, regulatory, and reporting actions have become.

Just pull the tooth! I want the tooth pulled...here's the money....pull it.

I went for a teeth cleaning appt. & now there were forms for medical history, habits, personal info, etc.....
It bothers me.
Just clean my teeth....here's the money....do it.
