Drink in the disgusting irony;
Dude murders his five months pregnant girlfriend in Queens.
Gets charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence, criminal possession of a weapon and abortion.
Dad kills a five month old fetus and its a crime. Mom kills a nine month old one and it's a celebration.
Come on brimstone.

henry,

These past few days are why I have confidence in Trump.

Either he is using his "executive time" wisely or his rumored (by Q people) allies in military intelligence are doing a bang up job.

It's quite satisfying, isn't it?

The Infamous Ignatz

--I think the concept of checks and balances was one of the wisest decisions the Founding Fathers made. How exactly do you think the SCOTUS would have a check against the power of the other two branches without the ability to rule a law unconstitutional?--

Excellent answer if the question was "does the Constitution contain checks and balances between the three branches of government".

However the challenge posed was actually;
"And there is no such thing as equal branches of government. Show me in the Constitution where it says that."

Congress is by far the most powerful of the three branches. It can remove judges including SCOTUS ones. It has to approve them in the first place. It can drastically restrict Federal court jurisdictions and even eliminate entire Federal court districts up to and including all of them, except SCOTUS. It can remove the President. It declares war. It originates all legislation and can override the President's veto of it. It can, along with the states, amend the Constitution.
Now it's true it has abdicated some of its powers and others have been arrogated by the other two branches, but that unconstitutional behavior is part of why we're in a mess.

If the Schiff story were true, that would be something. Did Schiff’s people rerun it because he got caught with his pants down with the Fusion GPS dude Simpson and a distraction was needed? Is it possible for a baptism scene to run for a year?

I think Adam Schiff is cisgendered and straight; and there's everything wrong with that.

The dog that doesn't seem to bark was about the Schiff Simpson collusion in Aspen, did any of our side push Whitaker on that.

The bigger news on Adam Schiff is his secret meeting with the Fusion GPS guy. Remember what they did to Nunes including taking him off thr committee.

Trump;

My representatives have just left North Korea after a very productive meeting and an agreed upon time and date for the second Summit with Kim Jong Un. It will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam, on February 27 & 28. I look forward to seeing Chairman Kim & advancing the cause of peace!

North Korea, under the leadership of Kim Jong Un, will become a great Economic Powerhouse. He may surprise some but he won’t surprise me, because I have gotten to know him & fully understand how capable he is. North Korea will become a different kind of Rocket - an Economic one!

I can't figure out whether democrats have lost their minds exhibiting that they are complete morons, or if we have a New Democrat cult who have brought moronic behavior to the forefront.

Oh, and that Traveller survived the war and retired with Lee to Washington College (now W & L in Lee's honor, where Lee is buried)--really amazing. There's a novel somewhere written from Traveller's point of view (following off Black Beauty, the first novel to take a horse as the teller) in which Traveller after the war assumes they won it because Lee is cheered everywhere he goes! At W&L they have Traveller's stall still there and daily it is filled with hay. It is to weep (I certainly did).

**JOKE TIME**

A bakery owner hires a young female clerk
who likes to wear very short skirts and thong
panties...
One day a young man enters the store, glances
at the clerk and at the loaves of bread behind
the counter. Noticing her short skirt and the
location of the raisin bread, he has a brilliant idea...
"I'd like some raisin bread please"...
The man says...
The clerk nods and climbs up a ladder to reach
the raisin bread located on the very top shelf...
The man standing almost directly beneath her,
is provided with an excellent view, just as
he thought.
When she descends the ladder, he decides that he
had better get two loaves, as he is "having company
for dinner"...
As the clerk retrieves the second loaf of bread, one of
the other male customers notices what's going on and
requests his own loaf of raisin bread.
After many trips, she is tired,
irritated and begins to wonder "why the unusual
interest in the raisin bread"...?
Atop the ladder one more time, she looks down
and glares at the men standing below...
Then, she notices an elderly man standing amongst
the crowd. Thinking that she can save herself a trip,
she yells at the elderly man, "Is it raisin for you too"...?
"No," stammers the old man, "but it's quivering a little".

Chapter 4: "I hold my beers with my Left hand, just like Al Jolson!"

From the Buzzfeed story above:

...Northam is still struggling to convince those around him that he should be able to complete his term in office, and that he was not in fact in the yearbook picture.

His chief argument as he has huddled with advisers and staff that he was not: The people in the picture were holding beers in their right hands...

That stuck Northam as odd, a source close to his office said. In medical school, Northam told advisers, he’d been so awkward with his right hand that he had to force himself to hold the scalpel with it. His left hand was his dominant hand, and indeed, the hand with which he was holding a beer in the picture of him alone in a cowboy hat — next to one that could yet alter the course of his political career.

That convinces me the Coonman is innocent.

How 'bout you guys.

Catsmeat,

Re: Robert E Lee and Traveler, From "The Sneads Of Fluvanna," one of my great great great Aunt's published diaries of the War Years she witnessed as a young lady, page 84:

...Philip Benjamin, one of the twenty-one, lost his life in
reconnoitering, a few days before the raid, expecting to
obtain the correct information as to where Sheridan*s army
was. In company with another soldier, he rode some dis-
tance from home, and in attempting to cross the River James
on his return with the information, the river being much
swollen by rains, his boat was upset and both of the young
men were drowned.

It looked as if the words of the poet, "Misfortunes never
come singly, but always in battalions,** were being verified,
for a few days afterwards, the sister of Captain Snead*s
wife, Jeannette Broaddus, was returning from the wedding,
and was drowned in a river near her home. The writer,
returning to her home in Richmond, Manchester side, about
this time, reached there in time to see a pageant the world
has seldom equalledi — ^that of Lee*s Army of Miserables
going south to their surrender, with Richmond in flames, and
a few days later, Grant*s army, also Sherman's, coming in
with their gaily caparisoned steeds, soldiers with glittering
uniforms, bands playing wildly all the airs of conquering
heroes, that, if one had been in sympathy with itwould have
sent the blood a-tinghng with rapture unspeakable;
but instead, the Southerner, who had not dreamed of defeat
or dared to mention it, was face to face with the sorrowful
moment. Never can the picture presented in the days after
the Surrender, of General Lee's return to Richmond be
effaced from memory. The rain was falling; some one
called that General Lee was coming. It was on the south
side of the James River. A rush to the door, and there,
sure enough, was General Lee, the great, good man, on
"Traveller'* with an aide on either side. He wore a water-
proof cape. It was the only sight of General Lee ever given
the writer. The Richmond Dispatch^ in writing of this
return to his home, says that *'A small group of horsemen
appeared in the morning on the further side of the Richmond
pontoon across the James. By some strange intuition, it
became known that General Lee was of the party, and,
silent and uncovered, a crowd of Virginians all gathered
along the route the horsemen would take. There was no
excitement, no hurrahing; but as the great chief passed, a
deep, loving murmur greater than these rose from the very
hearts of the crowd. Taking off his hat, and simply bow-
ing his head, the man, great in adversity, passed silently to
his own door; it closed upon him, and his people had seen
him for the last time in battle harness."
