AOC/Markey = now there's the best and the brightest in a veritable brain trust.
If the Dems/MSM weren't the flip sides of the same commie coin somebody would ask this question;
"If the Feds gobbling up 20% of GDP is inadequate and 50% is better they why isn't 100% best?"
They're always allowed their incrementalism.


Lots of good posts on this thread thus far.
Prayers to all of you and your families as regards to health issues.
PD, I'm so glad you got the help you needed.

Frank Robinson has passed away. First black manager in MLB. Only person to win the MVP in both leagues.

When I was at Cincy, he was the top dog on the Reds, along with Klu, Temple, McMillian and Bugess. One talented team but no pitching.

Had a terrible thought while listening to the recording of the SOTU last night. Trump went on at some length about the values of compromise vs revenge. I'm really afraid that this is prepping for letting all of the dem criminals off the hook.

Does he REALLY not understand that one law for the prog elites with a different law for us deplorables is the end of the United States as we knew it?


Mr Pin: "Question What is the association between myopia and ultraviolet B radiation, serum vitamin D concentrations, and polymorphisms in vitamin D metabolism genes in a cross-sectional, population-based random sample of participants 65 years and older from north and south Europe?

Don't know. But I've followed the Insty postings on Vitamin D. Nearly all my friends got D prescribed and low D is correlated with various problems. So Mrs NorCal and me have been taking it as a supplement.

But Insty's latest (a few weeks ago) was evidence of correlation but not causation. So now they're looking at other chemical pathways to explain things. Probably lower than optimal exposure to natural sunshine is the underlying cause. And vitamin D shows up due to that.


PD, re: guns and ammo lost in a terrible boating accident.

Eh? ... Oh! ...Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket! My guns and ammo were ALSO lost in a boating accident.
As the state of CA squeezes gun rights I predict an unbelievable number of boating accidents.

Republicans need to be "finding" dossiers on every Dem. that is gonna run for POTUS in 2020.

Just get a foreigner to type some made-up crap on a piece of paper. Call it a "dossier" because that sounds more important than 'made-up crap on a piece of paper'.

If any Dem. wins, we can at least appoint a Special Council & hound them while they're in office. Spy on them, tap their phones & offices, bring lawsuits against their friends & family members.
That would be okay, right?

Acting AG Whitaker Pushes Back Against Dems – Says He Won’t Testify Unless Dems Withdraw Subpoena Threat

In a 23-13 vote along party lines, the Democrat-led House Judiciary Panel authorized Congressman Nadler to subpoena Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker if he does not answer certain questions.

Whitaker pushed back against the Dems Thursday in a statement, calling their threat to subpoena him an attempt to create a “public spectacle” adding, “political theater is not the purpose of an oversight hearing, and I will not allow that to be the case.”

“Consistent with longstanding practice, I remain willing to appear to testify tomorrow, provided that the Chairman assures me that the Committee will not issue a subpoena today or tomorrow, and that the Committee will engage in good faith negotiations before taking such a step down the road,” Whitaker said.

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd backed up Whitaker in a separate letter demanding “written assurance” by a 6 PM deadline that the Judiciary Committee would not issue a subpoena.

Matthew Whitaker volunteered to appear before the Committee to testify, but the Democrats still threatening the head of the executive department with a subpoena in an effort to “refocus the hearing on President Trump’s confidential communications with the Acting Attorney General, which raises confidentiality interests that are vital to a President’s ability to discharge the responsibilities of his office,” Boyd wrote in his letter.

“Absent such an assurance,” Boyd wrote, Acting AG Whitaker will simply not show up for Friday morning’s hearing.

I'm really afraid that this is prepping for letting all of the dem criminals off the hook.


Think of this way. What a better way to prepare them for safety when in fact he is ready to spring the trap.

Tom R

Assuming the Democrats pull their PR stunt and subpoena Whitaker, since they have no power to enforce the subpoena themselves, wouldn't they have to request the DOJ's assistance to arrest Whitaker for failing to comply with the subpoena?


Trump went on at some length about the values of compromise vs revenge. I'm really afraid that this is prepping for letting all of the dem criminals off the hook.

I took it more as a warning.

The only thing stupider than a SJW getting triggered that Gucci created a piece of clothing that they believe promotes "blackface" racism is the fool who would pay $900 for it.



I see no evidence that a guy who had a whole chapter on Revenge in his book "Art of the Deal" is suddenly going to change his spots. Not even if he had some sort of religious experience.

I think that was a "last chance, stand down or else" offer.


Oh hear the great words of the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ..

In her FAQ about the Green New Deal, she helpfully explains:

We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren't sure that we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.

Jim Eagle

LOL at AOC and Markey.

Once again, I will remind everyone that for every MW of so-called Green Energy, you will need an additional MW of either Coal, Nuclear, Oil or Gas energy. It comes down a simple exercise of running RAMS.

Reliability, Availability, Maintainability. When the wind dies, of the sun is covered by clouds, and the solar plant requires monthly wipes, that old direty baseload coal fired, or 1200 mW nuke is humming right along.

False doctors kill one or two or a few more individuals before being caught. False engineers like AOC and Markey could end up killing millions with their breath of scope. Good lord please find a way to put those idiots in a different ring of hell.

If the fickled American voter didn't see the calamity they voted in a the SOTU then we are really screwed. Hopefully they did since the Indies are in the 80+% approval range. That demonstration of retro Klan outfits, and very unattractive Stacey Abrams had to be a turnoff.

And now Jerry Adler, the fat man of Manhattan's west side and Greenwich Village is goWhiing to go circus on the DOJ? BTW, want to see a gerrymandered district, google 10th Congressional District of NY. I hope Whitkaer shows up and shoves a 12psi inflated football up Jerry's bung hole.

Cathy. "I'm really afraid that this is prepping for letting all of the dem criminals off the hook."

I am more cynical than you. That ship sailed long ago, at least since 1/20/17 if not before. Trump never had any intention of prosecuting those bums and has just been waiting for the right time to tell his base.

This conclusion is the one thing that fits all the visible actual facts, if not the fantasies of some previous and the current flag carrier.

James D.

It never, ever ends:

Major League Baseball will rename the disabled list as the "injured list," a source familiar with the plan told ESPN.

The league will make the change out of concern that the term "disabled" for injured players falsely conflates disabilities with injuries and an inability to participate in sports.

I think that was a "last chance, stand down or else" offer.
That's actually exactly what I'm afraid of. That Trump will let them off the hook in A Deal in exchange for standing down on their witch hunt of him. In other words, all you need to do to get away with anything is to gin up a witch-hunt as a negotiating ploy.

That's still "different law for me as thee".


“farting cows and airplanes”

I seem to remember that the rockets in Flash Gordon (Buster Crabbe) tended to “fart” from time to time, but I’ve never seen a “farting airplane” that didn’t fall out of the sky in due course.

Cathy, and this "Does he REALLY not understand that one law for the prog elites with a different law for us deplorables is the end of the United States as we knew it?"

But he ain't done a lick in that direction in two years and counting.

If Pelosi actually said that then I expect to see the Democrats ask for something in return like full amnesty for DACA that they know Trump won't support. She wants to be able to claim she was willing to give Trump what he wanted but now he is rejecting the deal.

My FB friend Mary wonders if the new "green" buildings will be like the ones built by Brad Pitt's venture in New Orleans.


For instance, an honest discussion about guns would note white Americans kill each other at relatively similar rates to Europeans. But the dishonest discussion we have instead is "look at how high US murder rates are compared to Europe where they have strict gun control."
That is true but deceptive because the controlling variable is not guns but race.

I think per capita America has the highest, um, gang participation rate(?) in the world. Something like 10 times higher than Europe at least.

James "It never, ever ends"

And it will never end while the current population of Progs walk the earth. There is simply nothing we can do, short of mass white suicide and capitulation of our country to the One World Masters that will even get their attention. And even then they will complain about how we did those two things in order to meet them halfway.

Another day another leak of Congressional Spygate testimony. The FBI's lawyer never even looked at the Page FISA packet before signing off on it.


Jim Eagle

Do you people really think that all DJT has been through with the MFM, #NeverTrumpers, GOPe, the Dems, that he is going to throw in the towel to keep some asshole AG's and simpleton congressmen on committees for investigating him? He has been done this road before and won.

The level of abandonment is getting a little too close to leaving Trump for what? Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler? Hang in there the war is only starting.

Ah, NYT has Pelosi.

She’ll accept whatever deal the negotiators come up with. Pure uniparty crap must be coming:



I can't wait for the FULL COMMIE MFM to call PELOSI-GALORE to task for shutting down the GOVERNMENT and making MILLLLIONS and MILLLLLLLLLLLIONS of KIDDIES SUFFER.

Had this dried up old TUMBLEWEED negotiated in good faith, HER GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN would never have had to happen.

Old Lurker

Jack, if you mean me, I am no way abandoning him or looking for somebody better. But I will not accept that the restoration of equal justice for all has been attempted and perhaps not intended, and I will always think that was a failure in agenda setting back during the transition. I cannot imagine him caving to the attacks for all the history we all know. Nevertheless, the mass attacks are and are going to be, a problem for the next two years.

I think MLB should have a NO BALLS LIST.

How will you pay for it?

The same way we paid for the New Deal, the 2008 bank bailout and extended
quantitative easing programs. The same way we paid for World War II and all our
current wars. The Federal Reserve can extend credit to power these projects and
investments and new public banks can be created to extend credit. There is also
space for the government to take an equity stake in projects to get a return on
investment. At the end of the day, this is an investment in our economy that should
grow our wealth as a nation, so the question isn’t how will we pay for it, but what
will we do with our new shared prosperity.

No! Not singling out anyone. Just saying give him a chance. He has been known to have the patience of an oyster in business dealings. I give him a lot more rope than anyone else because he has successfully putl off stuff well past their experiation time.

I still cant establish how old the dam was:



1) Brookings obviously is a racist organization

2) No surprise my Calculus TAs were Chinese

Is nuclear a part of this?

A Green New Deal is a massive investment in renewable energy production and
would not include creating new nuclear plants. It’s unclear if we will be able to
decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of
nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible. No one has put the full 10-year plan
together yet, and if it is possible to get to fully 100% renewable in 10 years, we will
do that.

James D.

I hope everyone read this Green New Deal memo. It is hilarious. Well, scary, but mostly hilarious.

WE should start calling for every supporter of the Green New Deal to make all those proposed changes in their own lives right now.

If all those things are the right thing to do, why are they waiting until it's enacted into law and forced on the rest of us? Why don't they set an example for us?

Every GND supporter should stop flying anywhere, right now. No more conferences, no more trips overseas, it's Amtrak, hybrid-electric Greyhound bus (if there even is such a thing) or bust.

Every GND supporter should get rid of any fossil-fuelled vehicles or other devices they own. Cars, motorcycles, lawn mowers, portable generators. And they shouldn't sell them, or even donate them for tax write-offs. They should be recycled, at the owner's expense, since that would be the only truly green way to do it.

Every GND supporter should move into more earth-friendly housing. Which means no more than, say, 600 square feet, and served by public transportation, and totally dependent on only renewable energy to provide electric power. And the thermostat should be permanently set to never go above 66 in winter or below 86 in the summer.

Every GND supporter should immediately go vegan - not just vegetarian, because they still eat dairy, which of course means those horrible "farting cows" AOC warned us about. And, further, they should only eat food produced less than 20 miles from their home, otherwise there'd be wasteful and Earth-murdering cars and trucks transporting that food long distances.

If it's so great to do, and it's so righteous, and it's such an easy thing, why shouldn't they do it first, and let us hold them to all those rules, to show us the way to the future?

92 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans support the Green New Deal

Is it really worth reading beyond that?

How will you pay for it?

The same way we paid for the New Deal, the 2008 bank bailout and extended quantitative easing programs. The same way we paid for World War II and all our current wars. The Federal Reserve can extend credit to power these projects and investments and new public banks can be created to extend credit.

As part of the Green New Deal everyone who believes humans are causing climate change should be forced by law to get sterilized. That way they can prove their commitment to saving the planet.


Resolution Summary

 Created in consultation with multiple groups from environmental
community, environmental justice community, and labor community

 5 goals in 10 years:

o Net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition
for all communities and workers
o Create millions of high-wage jobs and ensure prosperity and economic
security for all
o Invest in infrastructure and industry to sustainably meet the challenges
of the 21st century
o Clean air and water, climate and community resiliency, healthy food,
access to nature, and a sustainable environment for all
o Promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and
repairing historic oppression of frontline and vulnerable communities

Hirono: Green New Deal’s Flight Restrictions ‘Would Be Pretty Hard for Hawaii’

Despite the plan being short on details — and without a price tag — several leading Democrat presidential contenders, including Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) have come out in support of it. “I’m excited to join @AOC and @EdMarkey to introduce the #GreenNewDeal. Climate change is real, it threatens all of us, & we have no time to waste to address it head-on,” Warren wrote on social media.

MSNBC Guest Argues Blackface is the Same as Sexual Assault

Thompson argued that because Northam’s blackface photo was uncovered before Fairfax’s accuser stepped forward — that it somehow makes it more important than her sexual assault.

“It would be different … but the original crime was blackface on the part of Northam,” Thompson said.

“Which is awful, but it’s not a crime,” Ruhle said.

“Well, it’s a crime to us as black people,” Thompson replied. He also argued that black men have a history of being falsely accused of rape so it some how makes him care less about his black female accuser.

Thompson went on to argue that getting rid of the two white politicians and keeping the black accused sexual criminal is important because Virginia Democrats need the black vote.
