Where am I supposed to be bringing my wine collection, again? Is it to The Ledge™?

Jack is Back!

When you look at it seriously, are their any competent candidates so far that will ignite the imagination and passion of our voters? I don't think so.

All the Dems so far will knock each other out. I have no idea who will be left standing but whoever it is will be weakend by the primary. If I had to take a guess right now, it would be Slo Joe.

“If I link a story from there again, someone call me on it, please.”

Are comments moderated? I wouldn’t necessarily blame the site owners for the commenters, though I suppose if it gets ugly enough, they should do something. On the rare occasions that I go to that site—usually because Ig links to it here—I know not to bother with the comments.

If Trump fails, we all lose

https://onenewsnow.com/perspectives/tim-wildmon/2019/02/07/if-trump-fails-we-all-lose

"One of the reasons President Trump has been taking unrelenting, incoming fire from the liberal elites – even before he was sworn in – is precisely because he is not ashamed of the Bible, the Constitution, the family and the free enterprise system."...

"The political progressives in this country are secular humanists. They have taken over one of the two major political parties in America. They have open disdain and in some cases hatred for the God of the Bible, His morals, values and His people. This is becoming more apparent. The path they are going down will lead to the persecution of Christians. Even physical persecution."....

"The man is fighting these same people who want to destroy our country and who want to ruin our lives unless we bow the knee to Baal. And they are vicious and they are ruthless. And they, the God-haters, are after President Trump because in many respects – politically speaking – to them he represents us.

We need to pray for President Trump ... every day."

Well, I said I could give them a pass on the anti-semitic comment section since they don't moderate it but they have consistently crapped on even financial pressure to get rid of our enemy Maduro. Straw - camel.
Almost all of their good articles are just aggregated from elsewhere so I think I'll forego the middle man.

I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called “Carbon Footprint” to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military - even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!

All these characters are typical lefty sleezoids, except the sheriff, who still stepped in it badly. And the one lawyer, Power, who we supported in the last election to chase out Gaylord, the ultra crappy County Prosecutor.

It is the second case the San Juan Prosecutor’s Office has lost due to misconduct in the Sheriff’s Office in recent years. In 2016, Eaton — then sitting as a superior court judge — threw out the felony conviction of a high school teacher accused of having sex with a student after it was revealed that the sheriff’s detective on the case was having sex with the victim and had lied.

Just to add to the pile, we had the adult daughter of our worst lawyer in town boinking under age boys and momma flew her to Mexico and then sat down there while she negotiated a deal for herself and her doofus daughter to come back.

Sacked cardinal issues manifesto in thinly veiled attack on pope
========

I saw an article about this this morning on a Catholic web site. I wonodered if this was a disguised rebellion on Pope Che's activities. Apparently Reuters thinks so.

This cardinal was one of Pope Benedict's inner circle.

"Elizabeth Warren’s Christian faith is deep and authentic, and it informs her work as a senator."

So it's kind of a shogun motif, this Mueller is indeed part of the inner circle

Yes they called him the poison king, he struck Roman colonies in Asia minor, about 20 years after the numidian war in north Africa

Jamet.

I always count on the Boston Globe to assess the authenticity of Christian faith, don't you?

If you stand up for abortion and infanticide, you are not Christian. That is my opinion, but it is one that until recently most denominations shared.

MM, long way from a “rebellion”. The “conservatives” have had problems with Che from day one. They aren’t winning too many over. Like lay politics, everyone is pretty dug in.

Speaking of Kashoggi I've been following the Alex Jones, Jack Dorsey and Joe Rogan beef. Jack Dorsey and Twitter are in bed with the Saudis. Maybe as much or more than Newscorp.

Also, speaking of defamation Alex Jones accused Jack Dorsey of securities fraud viz Bitcoin. He may just be inviting a lawsuit for the lulz. I don't know if Jack Dorsey has anything to do with Bitcoin.

Hi, Pin--that's wonderful about Mithradites--he shows up in Sayers' Strong Poison when Wimsey quotes the end of A.E. Housman's poem about him:

The cardinal is upset about his demotion, therefore he is lashing out at Pope Francis.

Doing catch-up:

When confronted with the Aspen conference photos of Schiff, in sport coat and open-neck dress shirt, and Simpson, wearing casual attire, representatives for both men tried to minimize their discussion, insisting nothing substantive about the Russia case was discussed.

“In the summer of 2018, Mr. Simpson attended a media-sponsored social event where he exchanged small talk with Rep. Schiff and many other people who were in attendance,” Fusion GPS said in a statement to me. “The conversation between the two was brief and did not cover anything substantive. There has been no subsequent contact between Mr. Simpson and Rep. Schiff.”

I recall that scooter Libby and reporter Judith Miller met in Aspen. They talked about the roots of Aspen Trees. For that they both went to jail.

I guess Aspen Trees are more substantive than discussions about how to illegally bring down a President.

D

I saw a report that McCarrick may be defrocked.

D

I like Mark Meadows because he is a straight shooter.

Catsmeat

We all got a natural history lesson at the time about the interconnectedness of aspen roots, and that meant, we all learned, that Miller and Libby were working out a conspiracy. That line of analysis went on for rather a time, odd to recount, as it's not a very plausible one.

I've read several screeds today about what Candace Owen said about Hitler and Nationalism. They all totally misread a key sentence: "if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine." Did she really have to say Hitler was actually a mass murderer, etc?

Just like with all the misreadings of Trump, you have to wonder if they're really that stupid or just think their audience is, or both.

What's all this "WE" business? Sounds like he is gonna make all Virginians - even kindergartners - atone for HIS past behavior. He's gonna read some stuff while Virginians will have to go to sensitivity training? That's absurd!
What's happening to AG Mark Herring?

FTA - "“It’s obvious from what happened this week that we still have a lot of work to do. There are still some very deep wounds in Virginia, and especially in the area of equity,” he said. “There are ongoing inequities to access to things like education, health care, mortgages, capital, entre­pre­neur­ship. And so this has been a real, I think, an awakening for Virginia. It has really raised the level of awareness for racial issues in Virginia. And so we’re ready to learn from our mistakes.”"...

"“First of all what I plan to do . . . is to make sure that we have sensitivity training — in our Cabinet, in our agencies. I also plan to reach out to our colleges and universities and talk about sensitivity training. Even into the K through 12 age range, that’s very important.”...

--Iggy:

What actual evidence do you have that is their motivation and if it is, why doesn't it apply even more so to Pope Francis who has worked his way to the top o' the perks?

Perhaps, and this seems to be the real case, based on what I have read of both cardinals, they understand and defend real church tradition and teaching, and far more important to this Protestant, actual biblical doctrine and Christian orthodoxy.
Perhaps you might apply the Biblical exhortation of discernment, testing the words of leaders against the scriptures as the Berean church did and judging Christians by their fruits. Do these demoted cardinals have rotten fruit? I haven't seen any, but Francis sure throws a lot of it around.
Doesn't mean he's always wrong of course but he spends far, far too much time worrying about what is Caesar's to the neglect and the outright distortion of the things of God.
I'm starting to think his primary problem is like most progs; he's a dope.
