This is a good article by Newt, and I am glad he is brining up Feinstein's Chinese spy/driver again.

I still say he may have been a courier rather than a spy; in other words, Feinstein was selling information.

Should someone propose a 70% tax on the Patriots so that NFL competition is more fair and equal? Asking for a friend.

James D.

MM @ 5:40

That’s a fantastic thread.

MissMarple2

James D,

I thought so, too. While we notice the "herding" and division that's being caused, it was fascinating to read the same ideas from someone with his background.

MM, James, the guy was making observations that are obvious to anyone paying attention.

But there’s an argument that the herding part is wired into people.

MissMarple2

Another Bob,

The whole point is that for a lot of people it is NOT obvious. I deal with this in my own family.

James D.

Should someone propose a 70% tax on the Patriots so that NFL competition is more fair and equal? Asking for a friend.

They kind of do have that, with full revenue sharing and a strict salary cap. And yet, shocking enough, some teams and coaches manage to win consistently, and some lose consistently.

It's almost as though skills, work ethic and a strong internal culture lead to success or something. But that's crazy talk, right?

MM - Was that MAGA Superbowl 2019 ad shown during the Super Bowl? Its a wonderful ad.

You have to give Drudge credit - he comes up with some of the snappiest captions. This is what he posted re:Levine's performance - MOVE OVER, JANET JACKSON: Adam Levin shows his breasts during halftime show! 😂

Robin

A very astute observation from MM’s 5:40 twitter thread:

But his “racism” is really just acceptance of the racial and gender stereotypes already created by the media.

James D.

But there’s an argument that the herding part is wired into people.

Human nature is what it is.

Social media and a 24/7 "always on" media make it infinitely worse.

And unprincipled, soulless people who are happy to take advantage of it regardless of the cost or the damage done make it worse still. For example, pretty much every elected official in the Democrat Party.

Robin

My daughter is in an alternative Ms/hs and this week they are focusing on the BLM guiding principles, which are really an affront to young black men.

Here is the only criticism I could find via google, apparently, people are the left are not willing to question the orthodoxy. I wrote my daughter’s principle and asked about the language in the documents, waiting for a response.

I've been a U.S. senator for three weeks now, and I can tell you that reports of hate and incompetence in Washington are severely understated. Things are actually much worse than they appear.

Another Bob

To clarify James, by “wired in” I mean people are inherently prone to self-segregate. Should that be thought of as inherently bad?

clarice

MM--that report on Fairfax is hilarious.

MissMarple2

henry,

That article by Senator Scott is good.

boris

"inherently prone to"

But not so difficult to overcome And while the media give lip service and virtue signal about overcoming they encourage the opposite and stoke resentments to help dimorat exploit the divisions.

MissMarple2

clarice,

Ir is hilarious! The dems have TWO millstones around their necks with the Georgia Gov and Lt Gov!

I love it!

Any reason to believe Fairfax might have engineered the Northam hit?

The Fairfax metoo hit is simply return fire?

I'm going to bet Under, which has dropped from around 59 to 56 but is still plenty high as an under/over. I'm hoping for a sloppy game, plenty of turnovers, uninspired play call, and a paucity of scoring.

Whoever wrote that first post of this thread gave us the best no-worries bet of the year, woohoooo!

James D.

they did have to sneak in some criticism from Ben Rhodes and "members of the foreign policy establishment."

Here's a question:

Considering the absolutely contempt that Rhodes showed for the media in his long NYT Magazine article a couple of years back, and the way he bragged about using them as dupes to spread lies about the Iran deal and other Zero administration policies, why would any reporter with even one ounce of self-respect or integrity EVER speak to him?

Texas Liberty Gal

CNN only reports news that fits its narrative-but we already knew that.

rse

Robin-it sounds to me like your daughter's school is using the materials created by the SPLC and the NEA. It was something they had created long before C'ville, which was supposed to be the primer for its widespread use.

I have a new post up which translates into why I don't think Governor DeSantis is actually taking Florida out of the Common Core, whatever his personal intentions.

Narciso79

Probably not, but there isn't an available replacement template is there?

rse

Sure there is. We could go back to actually teaching subject content instead of treating it as the source of experiences to transform each student's Worldview.

I only used a small sample of the materials I have pulled in just the last month, all pointing in the same direction. Usually available on multiple servers once we become aware of the title.

You cannot insist you are pulling out of the common core while simultaneously pursuing a Whole Child education template. It's simply a failure to appreciate what cc is really about.

Headline: MLK’s Niece Calls On Ralph Northam To Apologize For ‘Agreeing To Kill Little Babies’

Tom R

From MM's 9:39
Whitney: Super Bowl XXV 1991, Tampa. Her incredible voice❤️Her rendition came at a particularly patriotic time, just after the onset of the Persian Gulf War

That brings back a great memory from Desert Storm. The Super Bowl had been played about 3 weeks earlier when a new soldier arrived to the unit. He was in my platoon and told me he had brought a VHS tape of the Super Bowl if we wanted to watch it. Only problem was we were out in the middle of the Saudi desert close to the Iraq border with no TV and no VCR. I had an old crusty platoon sergeant who was known as a "scrounger". We were a supply unit so he had plenty of things to use as trade bait. It took him about two weeks to acquire a TV and VCR. I asked him where he got them from and his response was "you don't want to know".

We setup a GP Medium tent for the entire company which came to about 70 people. After Whitney performed the anthem every single one of us were crying. We ended up rewinding the tape and watching her performance 4 or 5 times before everyone was ready to start watching the game. Whitney's performance will never be surpassed for me.

After the game we found out a lot of parents had VHS tapes sent to them from their family for Christmas that they hadn't gotten to watch yet. We watched all of the family tapes and there was even more crying. All in all it was a great night.

Great story, Tom R!

MSNBC is airing in the break room and there is a black pundit on talking about how Northram has to resign. He said something to the effect he has to resign because this scandal is giving Fox News and the Russians an opportunity to turn some of the black community against the Democrat party, which is the only party that advances their causes.

Justice Ginsburg is back in the office today!

I was just informed that she was seen in the basement of the building.

Let my assistant take this as a request to please alert the other justices' chambers of her return and to request everyone to please promptly assemble in the justices' conference room to welcome back Justice Ginsburg.

Also, if you would please arrange for coffee and pastries to be brought into the conference room, as well as some Gatorade for Justice Sotomayor.

And please reschedule all of my meetings and telephone calls for the next few hours.

I'm sure everyone else will be as excited as I am to see her and to find out how she is and what she has been up to during her recovery!

We have so much to catch up on! It's been so long since we have seen her.

UPDATE: The person thought to be Justice Ginsburg has turned out to be a mentally-ill bag lady from the street whom security guards brought into the building to check on.

So it appears that Justice Ginsburg is not in the office today, again.
