WHITE HOUSE CONDEMNS ATTACKS ON PRESS AT TRUMP RALLY

“President Trump condemns all acts of violence against any individual or group of people – including members of the press. We ask that anyone attending an event do so in a peaceful and respectful manner,” Sanders said.

...

The attacker is shown screaming “f**k the media” before he was ushered away by security personnel. A campaign worker suggested to BBC News after the incident that the attacker was intoxicated.

Still no name.

I don't remember Eisenhower very well but the job seemed to visibly age all DJT's predecessors.

He's also by far the most experienced executive of any president in memory, so presumably he knows how to use his time efficiently, to delegate, and to motivate his employees. Of course to the MSM it will just be "evidence" that he's lazy and uninvolved.

Proving that the left has NO sense of humor. Anyone who saw that rally with that comment knew it was a joke!
“Joke” is the wrong word, MM. The "Russia, if you're listening..." line was pure snark to make the point that because of Hilary’s reckless disregard for any and every security measure it’s possible that ANYBODY and EVERYBODY could have her emails.

Ike was a very experienced executive. Ask Churchill or Monty. You invade Nazi Europe, conquer the German empire at that time, come home and run for POTUS. In my opinion he was the most qualified POTUS candidate since Jefferson.

Re Kamala and the jail snitch case, it is a real stinkeroo. That she didn't intervene is criminal. I know some of those involved and unfortunately our Sheriff's Department is in it up to their eyeballs.

They have been refusing to turn over records for years and may well have destroyed much of the evidence. It was just released last week or so that they were listening in to attorney-client phone calls from the jail as well. You just cannot do that shit. It caused an old friend of mine, a Superior Ct judge, to throw out the death penalty in the Scott DeKraii case.

Now think about this; DeKraii killed 6 people, confessed and that just wasn't good enough for the jailers. They put a known liar in as their snitch, and now this has affected 20-30 other cases minimum. The wiretapping is going to really up the ante.

Our former DA is a douche I never liked. Our former Sheriff was a LA glasswork ceiling appointment who never did much and, it seems to me, let the jailers do what they pleased. Now she and her hubby are double dipping on their pensions to the tune of well over $1 million/year.

The new DA is a whacko, but may be straight. Stay tuned. It ain't over.

When Ike was president the entire Federal Budget was well under $100B (crossing that line was JFK I think).

Today the Federal Budget is what, 40 times bigger and with less to show for it (IMO). Even adjusted for inflation "that's crazy talk".

Old Lurker

I peel them when I eat them, Hoyden. I think the ease of peeling is the luck of the draw and from what I read, fresh eggs are harder to peel than older eggs so we wait a few days before cooking them. (or so the egg dish fairy tells me)

HOUSE REPUBLICANS LEFT IN DARK OVER GOVERNMENT FUNDING DEAL DETAILS

WASHINGTON — Alabama Republican Sen. Richard Shelby announced Monday night that congressional negotiators reached an agreement to fund the border wall, thereby avoiding another government shutdown on Friday, but House Republican leadership had not seen details of the agreement when Shelby made his pronouncement.

Georgia Republican Rep. Tom Graves, a member of the bipartisan Conference Committee who has been negotiating the deal since the government re-opened nearly three weeks ago, tweeted Tuesday morning, “I haven’t signed off on the reported ‘deal,’ nor have I seen it. Based on the reports, I have concerns. Lots of questions, too.”

When The Daily Caller asked House Minority Whip Steve Scalise about Graves comment he replied, “He hasn’t he hasn’t seen the details I haven’t seen the details. I don’t think Leader McCarthy has seen the details.”

He added, “Clearly, the details matter and I’m waiting to see those and I want to speak to the president later today as we’ll see where he is once he sees all the details.”

Hmmm.

Reading about the train scam ended today in CA, this sentence made me smile "According to the audit, the state risked having to pay back as much as $3.5 billion in federal funds."

What they have not reported is how much State and how much Federal cash has already been spent?

Old Lurker

I will dribble out tidbits. The very first advice offered by A-mom last summer was "don't skimp on the band". So the kids nailed down a Boston band as their first thing. Yes, we provide transportation and hotel rooms...

Extraneus @ 5:36

My guess for why House Republicans were left out of budget negotiations is because they have no leverage on whether a compromise budget bill is passed or not. Since the Democrats control the House, as long as Pelosi agrees to it then it will get passed.

Cheney Questions Climate Change Panelists on Green New Deal, Wonders if They Support ‘Vacation Commissar’

Cheney wondered how the government would regulate who could travel, and on what grounds flights would be approved. Chandra Farley, the Just Energy Director at the Partnership for Southern Equity in Atlanta, Georgia, offered that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) would make those decisions.

Cheney questioned whether the government would still allow Americans to fly for vacation, or whether California's representatives would have to bicycle to and from Washington, D.C. In the style of a Soviet government, perhaps there would be a "vacation commissar set up in the government" to make those decisions, she offered.

She further wondered how the panelists, who hailed from West Virginia, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, and Louisiana, were living out the vision of a world without flights. She asked the panelists to first answer "how exactly they arrived in Washington, D.C." for the hearing.

Multiple panelists confirmed they traveled by air. Cheney later asked whether any of the witnesses supported the Green New Deal.

"So let me ask you then," Cheney asked, "are there any other witnesses on the panel who do support the Green New Deal?"

Following a few moments of silence, some jumped in to express qualified support, or deferred, denying expertise on the specific legislation.

"freshmen GOP senators Mike Braun of Indiana and Rick Scott of Florida introduced a proposal Tuesday to end tax-funded congressional pensions.

“It’s time for term limits and it’s time to make those in D.C. realize that the era of career politicians is over. Americans should not have to foot the bill for generous salaries and pensions for members of Congress,” Scott said.

Both men promised not to accept tax-funded pensions when they leave Congress"

My cousin married a stock broker who was flush with funds (at the time) and my Aunt made him do it up at an expensive place in New Jersey. We all had rooms, and let me just say that my Aunt also made him buy a giant house, with the kitchen floor costing $80K, not to mention a 4-car garage with matching white Land Rover, Jaguar, MB and BMW.

The entrance to the wedding hall featured ice sculptures, which accompanied a very large seafood island with many treats over ice. The rest of the party was equally top-notch, including the cigar room, which if I remember right provided genuine Cubans.

Surely you can surpass this, OL! I want to hear about another tour de force wedding!

I always cool eggs in cold water but an easy way to peel them is softly smash it on the counter just hard enough to break the shell. Then roll it once between your hand and the counter. The shell will just about fall off the egg in two pieces.

HH: (laughing) He never reads any briefing material, the President, does he?

CC: Yeah, I mean, you know, it’s got to be relatively short, and something that he’s really interested in. He is an audible, an audio learner. He is a verbal learner. He, when you brief the President, you have to do it verbally. That’s the way he enjoys it. That’s the way he learns best. And people who try to buck that lose, because he just won’t do it. So you know, whenever I’ve briefed him on things, both during the campaign and otherwise, it’s always been to do it verbally. That’s the way he enjoys it best. And by the way, that’s the way he learns best.

GOP/Dem Deal Keeps Catch and Release for Thousands of Illegal Aliens

A Republican-Democrat border deal keeps current rates of Catch and Release of illegal aliens, border crossers, and adults who have trafficked children across the U.S.-Mexico border at around the same level as this previous year.

As Breitbart News reported, the Republican and Democrat lawmakers’ deal includes about $1.3 billion in border wall funding — a fraction of the $5.7 billion that President Trump had requested — that can only be used in certain areas of the southern border and must be the bollard fencing that the Bush and Obama administrations previously deployed. The funding will add 55 miles of new barriers at the border.

Additionally, the deal keeps the amount of detention space that federal immigration officials need to detain illegal aliens and border crossers at about current levels. As of today, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is only funded for about 40,250 beds in detention centers.

Ah, this makes it clear. Men have no rights of free association.

The plaintiffs — a sophomore and two juniors — have demanded in the lawsuit that Yale and its fraternities rein in the parties.
