When is Rosenstein getting off the Mueller merry-go-round?
Isn’t it supposed to be this week?
TomR :
Will he be held accountable for his FISA signature and abuse of that process?
What about his involvement in Uranium One and that of Mueller?
Any consequences there?

D

President Trump shouldn’t be using misdirection and phony statements about important issues to the American people.

Narciso

Telepathy clearly, certainly the likes of jessie lieu who stopped the awan case dead is no help.

Rocco

I'm not sure if this is legit, it just popped up in the NEW section of reddit.

GUS

We are to have FAITH Miss M. Well over 2 years in, ZERO EVIDENCE that SESSIONS did anything but VIRTUE SIGNAL.
Tom R, has hitched his little red wagon to nonsense.
He invokes RG as cover.

MissMarple2

maryrose,

Well, if you are running a sting operation, or if you are trying to catch crooks without people leaking stuff to the media, I don't know how else you would do it.

During WWII, the allies fooled the Germans into thinking they were invading at a different place than Normandy.

You can read about it here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Fortitude

If, as I assume, our government has been infiltrated by people sympathetic to Iran, China, Cuba, drug cartels, or other nefarious actors, deception is exactly what will be needed to weed them out.

D

President is getting a lot of things accomplished but the resolution of these crimes against his campaign and presidency remain eludes him and us.
No real justice has transpired and traitors prosper , write articles, books and nasty comments trashing our legitimately elected president.
Everyone seems comfortable with that which only emboldens the press and idiots like Omar and AOC to pile on.
I am no longer admiring of any elected official who would allow this travesty of justice to continue without putting the full weight of their office in getting precise honest answers and concrete results. Take a lesson from Chicago.
Indict these losers with the felonies they have committed.
Put their traitorous faces in the public square and call for justice now.

Ray z---beautifully stated! So true!!


Hey, my kid's momma worked! They are not obese.
I am the master of the 15 minute meal! I never bought fast food here--only ate it when we travelled. We don't count pizza do we? This was before I knew carbs kill.

Now, I'm down to ten. ;-)
(We eat a whole lot of some kind of cast iron skillet pan seared protein fish/beef on greens around here, now that I am down to two mouths to feed at most meals.)

And there's always scrambled eggs and bacon in a pinch.

--Iggy, I thought it was common knowledge that Huber was ordered to investigate things.--

I didn't know he had ordered him to investigate U 1.

matt - deplore me if you must

It's great to see so many JOM'ers coming back and de-lurking. Let's keep it going. We all have a voice and an opinion or three and especially now that the loon from Pitzer is seemingly gone, it is a much more pleasant and more legible place.

Clarice, you forgot Brussels sprouts. Not a fan.....

Buckeye

I just got done with my MRI.

My first ever.

Now I know what was the inspiration for electronic music:)

D

MM:
What is your evidence that President Trump is running a sting operation?

MissMarple2

Rocco,

Looks legit but I don't know if it is new. I randomly chose one group and followed through to a single email, which seemed to be Huma and Hillary discussing a visit with Tony Blair after he had stopped by to see Obama. I assume at that date Blair was out of office since the email indicated that Blair's group Windrush was the source of the email. (I hadn't heard of that firm so will be looking about it later.)

Looks awfully elaborate to be a hoax. Links end up going to pdf files.

D

Bush 41 - a source of corruption?
Ah no.
That is a real stretch in my opinion.

Captain Hate

I didn't know he had ordered him to investigate U 1.

I think I learned that from JackStraw.

Buckeye

Speaking of pizza, my SIL is doing the Keto thing.

She discovered that with a really good non-stick skillet, you can do pizza just fine.

Put a layer of grated cheese down, heat it up so it starts melting then take off the heat and let it cool enough to solidify a bit, then just treat it like a pizza crust...sauce, veggies, meat, more cheese and bake as normal in the skillet.

D

Iggy:
If Sessions was doing his job, investigating Uranium One would have been a top priority.

Captain Hate

maryrose you have to lose that soft spot for the Bush family after they get together with the Clintons and have a good laugh at our expense.

MissMarple2

maryrose,

What is YOUR evidence that President Trump isn't doing anything?

The answer is that neither of us has evidence and we are simply onlookers.

That is why I refuse to argue about this, and I refuse to heap criticism on the President or on Sessions.

If the President is powerless (as I saw some said Obama was when he got in office and therefore was constrained from certain actions) then we are already lost.

If he is doing stuff behind the scenes, I don't need to know as I don't want the bad guys tipped off.

I know of no other person who would have risked his life, his family's lives, his business and his fortune to step forward and try to right this country. There was no one else.

SO, I am not going to pull an Ann Coulter and throw a hissy fit because things aren't being done according to my timetable.

D

Always easier to point fingers at others who haven’t been in office for 37 years and are now dead than to expect the current administration to declassify the information and expose the enemies of America.

D

All other presidents have risked their lives and some who were president gave their lives when they were assassinated while in office.
I can think of 10 other presidents who have done much more than our current one so no , no sainthood yet.

Captain Hate

Which 10? This should be good because it will include Saint JFK.

Tom R

Tom R, you are not correct about anything.

Gus,

Once everything becomes public and confirms I (and RG) turned out to be correct, will you be man enough and display integrity and admit you have been pretty much wrong about everything when it comes to Spygate?

I certainly will if it turns out you were correct.

Tom R

I'm not going to argue with you other than to say when you have people under you lying in a legal proceeding about actions that have been taken and suffer no consequences, you're not in charge of anything.

CH,

What subordinates of Sessions do you perceive was lying in a legal proceeding about actions that have been taken?

Jane

Has the JOM funeral been postponed until 6:00?

Captain Hate

Tom,

Whoever was the attorney who refused to turn over the letter in a FOIA proceeding. I'm sure she wasn't a direct report to Sessions but still is in a line relationship to him in an expanded org chart.

I'm not discussing this any more now because I have real life things to do.

sbwaters

I’ll just slide in this pew here.

I’ll take my cues from the regulars about when I should stand up, sit down, or kneel. I’m afraid our flavor never had to genuflect or cross ourselves but I’m comfortable with whatever customs fit.

Please don’t ask me to sing. Our hymns are keyed so I have to change octaves and it doesn’t sound pretty.

sbwaters

Jane, 2 pm Eastern = 10 am anchorage. It’s now.

Momto2

I'm here...but I was told there would be no singing, sb!

MissMarple2

Please let's drop the arguing. It's almost 2:00 PM.

I came across this feature from CBS This Morning, which I do not follow on Twitter but someone linked, and it reminded me of daddy's love of books.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

PowerLine had an article on AG Sessions way back early. He was meeting with staff and showed graceful courtesy and collegiality to disrespectful snot nosed leftie interns.

It was clear that he was out of his depth, and unable to bring a needed, no nonsense forceful approach to that dysfunctional environment.

Jane

Why don't people post about their favorite Daddy memory.

lurkersusie

As requested by the family, put on some jazz music and drink
a beer.

sbwaters

... Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart

peter

sbw @1:56 heh

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYqcad3cIW0 comes to mind.

sbwaters

... And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.

Jane

My favorite Daddy memory was in Paris. Caro and I had just met up in the Airport and made a pit stop in the ladies room. As we walked into a packed bathroom, Caro, in all her glory yelled: "Daddy says the first one is always the cleanest".

In Daddy's honor, anyone who has heard that, from anyone here or any where else has never forgot it. Including me. And he's right!

Today the 1st ones will be full.

MissMarple2

My favorite daddy memory is my first meeting with him, because he was just like he appeared on this site. He was waiting for me at Shapiro's and had described himself as looking like Terry Bradshaw.

Not really, except maybe his hairline. He called me "Miss Marple" and I don't think ever actually addressed me with my real name.

Talked non-stop and the time just flew by. I will always be grateful he was my friend.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

matt: "Brussels sprouts. Not a fan....."

Love 'em now, late in life. Steamed with lemon and spices.
"Gourmet, miniature designer cabbages"

sbwaters

Mrs. sbw sings beautifully in church.

I couldn’t do either of those songs. I’d tear up and my voice would break.

anonamom

"Alexa, play Billie Holiday"--done

I think daddy would not mind if I have gin, not beer, would he??? I'll put some jalepenos in it. He'd probably even like that!

peter

Moe's books in Berkeley was a place daddy mentioned to me as being one of his favorite bookstores. Here's its website:

https://www.moesbooks.com/

sbwaters

My first daddy was courtesy of Jane in Sturbridge. So many good people gathered.

anonamom

sbw, you've been to a lot of Catholic funerals, I see.

I love both of those hymms, even if I end up crying through them rather than singing.

peter

You're so right about church singing, sbw. I think the person who compiles those hymns goes out of his or her way to put them in keys requiring octave jumps. Minnie Ripperton couldn't hit some of the hight notes. Sometimes I just try to sing what I imagine a bass line would sound like if they published multiple parts. I don't sing loudly enough that anyone near me gets offended.

Tom R

Whoever was the attorney who refused to turn over the letter in a FOIA proceeding. I'm sure she wasn't a direct report to Sessions but still is in a line relationship to him in an expanded org chart.

IANAL but I am fairly certain whoever that was did the proper thing, both ethically and legally. Why would the DOJ turn over criminal evidence to the public before indictments and a trial to any Joe Blow who submitted a FOIA request?

MissMarple2

Joyful, joyful, Lord we adore thee
God of glory, lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee
Opening to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us with the light of day


All thy work with joy surround thee
Earth and heavenreflect thy rays
Stars and angels sing around thee
Center of unbroken praise
Field and forest, vale and mountain
Chanting bird and flowing fountain
Call us to rejoice in thee

The music to this hymn is "Ode to Joy" and I really couldln't help but think of it whenever I think of daddy.

Jane

SBW - we sure had fun that night, didn't we. And remember, Ann even sent a cake! And I think the Python (Bubbles) was even there!

Porchlight

Hello everyone. I know daddy would appreciate this.

sbwaters

Bubbles was there. Happily.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Al Stewart did an album back in the day that covered a lot of historical topics. I bet it would appeal to daddy. This one has one man's view of World War II. A Russian soldier who escapes back to his comrades through chaos and German lines after the blitzkrieg rolls through.
Years of heartbreak, danger and then triumph. But on his way home he is questioned by Stalin's police and for murky reasons is sent to the Gulag.
Quite nuanced and detailed for a pop song!

Momto2

So many favorite memories of someone I sadly never met in person. I remember once we were discussing some airline event and he discovered I was a former flight attendant. He posted some hilarious photos of "vintage" flight attendants.

But, I suppose my most favorite memory was waking up, signing on to JOM and discovering daddy had posted one of his famous photo embedded comments overnight. He could find the most hilarious and appropriate photos to make a point.

Narciso

Just one in random

Jim,Sunnyvale, I appreciate your tribute to daddy by going off thread in his honor. ;-)

Who knew? There's a statue in Alaska commemorating the Obama years:

A few years ago, a young CPA and his wife were trying to adopt a child from China. Daddy graciously, a my request, exchanged emails with them about what he had observed of the process during his many visits there. Luckily, they never had to travel to China, but instead adopted newborn twin boys born here in California.

My last Christmas email to him was a joke card I found and I ended it with “shut the garage door” - a familiar refrain of his for a period of time after he had had a moose intruder.

“Peace. Peace. He is not dead, he doth not sleep - he has awakened from the dream of life. ‘Tis we who suffer.”

joan

besides being compelling and bright and intelligent, daddy was kind. A couple of times (usually late at night) when the conversation would go to posting pictures and/or writing, I mentioned that I had a new book and loved the cover but no matter how hard I tried, I usually flubbed up on posting images. Within a few minutes, daddy would have my covers posted on here. Always made me smile.

He was such a joy.

Jane

Wonderful Centralcal - but how rude of him to make us suffer!

henry

Just popped for the extra fee “DNA traits” at Ancestry in honor of Darwin etc. yay I’m a 1 percenter! (Genetic redhead).

I’ll report on Brussels sprouts when I get to that page. (Yep, bitter greens are in there).

joan

I forgot to put 'joan' on my post about covers. If I leave the jjm (that I had to start using because of being locked out) then usually people call me 'jim'. :)

sbwaters

Steph, this memorial is not so stiff that you can’t post a Texas joke or two. I let Mrs. sbw read some of them for a good snicker. I don’t read them out loud to her.

Extraneus

I don't know whether to be sad or post a pic of Kate Upton licking an ice-pop.

rse

I am going to post this https://www.southernliving.com/souths-best/southern-soul-barbeque in honor of the NC boy who regularly got a chance to try the memphis version.

Anyone know which he came to prefer the most?

caro

When daddy was backing out of Jane’s driveway after the Sturbridge visit he hit a hydrant or some other obstruction an did some damage to the rental car. We all burst into laughter because this man drives huge planes perfectly.

joan

sbw, those two songs you posted, our choir has sung 'Eagle's Wings' for a few funerals of congregational members, and I always choke up when we sing 'Here I Am, Lord' as a Sunday hymn. Lovely music.

joan

Strawman Cometh

daddy was brilliant while humble, as has been pointed out by others, his only flaw was his allegiance to UNC. In a thread re:Duke Lacrosse, I took too much pleasure in pointing out to him that Nifong, and John 'baby daddy', two-Americas Edwards were both products of UNC law school.

Jane

Ihave an invocation that I will post at 3:00PM. It is the last invocation that will be said today at Daddy's funeral. It's an arbitrary time because I don't suspect we will stop celebrating his life anytime soon.

Momto2

Not a traditional hymn but I love the lyrics and thinking of daddy's girls and future generations...

FIND US FAITHFUL

We're pilgrims on the journey
of the narrow road,
and those who've gone before us
line the way.
cheering on the faithful,
encouraging the weary,
their lives a stirring testament
to God's sustaining grace.
o may all who come behind us
find us faithful,
may the fire of our devotion
light their way.
may the footprints that we leave,
lead them to believe,
and the lives we live
inspire them to obey.
o may all who come behind us
find us faithful.
Surrounded by so great
a cloud of witnesses,
let us run the race
not only for the prize,
but as those who've gone before us.
let us leave to those behind us,
the heritage of faithfulness
passed on thru godly lives.
After all our hopes and dreams
have come and gone,
and our children sift thru all
we've left behind,
may the clues that they discover,
and the mem'ries they uncover,
become the light that leads them,
to the road we each must find.

Thank you for that Steve Green song. I had forgotten about his music since our Christian radio station switched to another format.

I will be looking up his work, and I agree the lyrics from that song are very appropriate.

Just keep the beauties clothed. ;-)

That was perfect!

Here's one of daddy's posts from 2010 about crazy laws in other jomer's states:

Sorry TM, But I'm sticking it here. Goodnight!

Earlier tonight I was disturbed at discovering that disgraceful business about MASSACHUSETTS making it illegal to eat more than 3 sandwiches at a wake, or that your gorilla has to ride shotgun in that State. This prompted me to do some further research to see if any other states have (or have had in the past) Laws as Crazy as those BeanTowner's. I invite you guys to be the judge.


In honor of our outstanding host TM, allow me to start in New York:

NEW YORK:
1) "Citizens may not greet each other by "putting one's thumb to the nose and wiggling the fingers". (Perhaps thats why they use that other finger to say "Hey")
2) "Donkeys are not allowed to sleep in bathtubs in Brooklyn, "
3) "In New York State it is still illegal to shoot a rabbit from a moving trolley car."

Capt Hate's MARYLAND:
1) "A woman may not go through her husband's pockets while he is sleeping." (Damn fine Law if you ask me)
2) "You cannot swear while inside the city limits of Baltimore." (Quick, somebody tell the Captain!)
3) "It is illegal to mistreat oysters."

Janet's VIRGINIA
1) "It is illegal to kick your wife out of bed." (Bummer)
2) "Spitting on a sea gull is not tolerated."
3) "You cannot sell lettuce on Sunday, but you can sell beer, wine etc." (My kind of place!)

JMH, Hit's, Deb's NORTH CAROLINA
1) "Chapel Hill: It is a misdemeanor to urinate or defecate publicly." (Broke that one!)
2) "Asheville: it is illegal to sneeze on city streets." (Broke that one)
3) "In Nags Head North Carolina you can be fined for singing out of tune for more than ninety seconds." (Broke that one!)
4) "it is illegal to make love on the floor of a hotel room between two double beds." (Hit?)
5) "Elephants may not be used to plow cotton fields."

JiB & Narciso's FLORIDA
1) "It is illegal to fish while driving across a bridge."
2) "Failure to tell your neighbor his house is on fire is illegal."(But when the Firemen show up, they can watch it burn if you didn't pay some fee. Or was that Tennessee?)
3) "It is illegal to fart in a public place after 6:00pm on a Thursday." (Note to self--Don't order the chile relleno's at the Copa).

PorchLight's TEXAS
1) "It is illegal to urinate on the Alamo." (God Bless Texas!)
2) "Houston: It is illegal to sell Limburger cheese on Sunday."
3) "Obnoxious odors may not be emitted while in an elevator." (This place just keeps getting better and better!)
4) "Sixteen-year old divorced girls are prohibited from talking about sex during high school extracurricular activities."
5) (And from Janet's old hometown...) "In Kingsville, there is a law against two pigs having sex on the city's airport property."


Melinda's & Obama's ILLINOIS (psst, It's gone to the dogs)
1) "Chicago: It is illegal to give a dog whiskey."
1a) "It is illegal for anyone to give lighted cigars to dogs."
1b) "It is illegal to take a French poodle to the opera."
1c) ""It is against the law to make faces at dogs."
1d) "It is illegal to attempt to have sex with one's dog."(Don't know why this last ones even necessary, since if you can't wine 'em and dine 'em and take 'em to the Opera, chances you're gonna' get some are already slim to none)
2) "There is a $1,000 dollar fine for beating rats with baseball bats." (No wonder the ChiSox & Cubbies's can't hit---they lost all that valuable batting practice)
3) "Champaign: One may not pee in his neighbor's mouth."
4) "Joliet: It is against the law to mispronounce the city's name."

Glasater's WASHINGTON
1) "Everett: It is illegal to display a hypnotized person in a store window."
2) "It's illegal to sleep in an outhouse without the owner's permission."
3) "Anyone under the age of 18 must have parental permission to throw a tear gas canister."

Dave's ARIZONA
1) "There is a possible 25 years in prison for cutting down a cactus."
2) "Donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs."
3) "It is illegal to take naked photographs before noon on Sunday."
4) "Tucson: Women may not wear pants."

DoT, Matt's, CC's, DrJ's, Elliott's, Iggy's, Sara's, & everyone else's
CALIFORNIA
1) "Illegal Aliens are entitled to Instate College Tuition."
2) "In Los Angeles courts it is illegal to cry on the witness stand." (Yeah, right)
3) "It's against regulations to let phones ring more than nine times in state offices." (Yeah, right)
4) "It is illegal to drive more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Boulevard at one time."
5) "It is illegal to pile horse manure more than six feet high on a street corner." (No word on sheep poop height in Hollywood)

Another Barb's HAWAII
1) "Coins are not allowed to be placed in one's ears." (That's all. They haven't been a state long enough to come up with any other stupid ones... and I had such hi-hopes. Bummer)

daddy & Mefolkes ALASKA
1) "It is illegal to whisper in someone's ear while they are moose hunting."
2) "Waking a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking a photograph is prohibited."
3) "It is an offense to push a live moose out of a moving airplane." (But they can ride in the backseat unlike gorilla's in Massachusetts!)
4) "Anchorage: No one may tie their pet dog top the roof of a car."
(Somebody's glad about that! Cayyyyyyyyyyyyroooooooooooooooooooo........)

Yes, MM - I agree about Steve Green's music. That song was one from my husband's funeral and I thought it was appropriate for daddy as well.

Another song for daddy, his beloved Beach Boys remember the good old days and vow to ...,

It's almost impossible to pull up an exceptional daddy post because there were so many. There's a reason they call it the Ether, because our work evaporates in no time flat. His never put you to sleep or caused headaches, but ever the reverse.

joan

daddy did like Kate Upton, didn't he. :)

Catsmeat

Daddy's favorite, Twain, was born when Halley's Comet sailed through--and predicted he'd go out he'd die when it came again--and he did. Daddy didn't have a comet to go by, but he has the blaze of our love.

caro

The first evening at Jane’s we went out for dinner. Daddy ordered Mac n cheese with lobster. Now I love Mac n cheese and I love lobster. But together? Eeuww. I ask you gourmets out there!

Narciso

That's an intriguing combo,

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Because of his flight schedules , daddy's presence here on the blog was scatter shot. Thus, he was able to interact directly with all the time stratas.

The moniker "daddy" was so appropriate because you felt his caring was unconditional. He was curious but not at all judgmental about everyone.

Encouraging and positive.

Jane

Excellent Momto2

peter

Some really wonderful posts here. Thanks to all.

Jane

Caro,

They serve it everywhere around here now. I'd forgotten about that. Thanks!

sbwaters

Cayyyyyyyyyyyyroooooooooooooooooooo........

How could I forget daddy trying out different JOM names until finding caro -- the right one to holler while walking the dogs to warn bears of thier approach.

Manuel Transmission

RIP Rob.

We salute you down here in the lower 48.

caro

I forgot about the Cayyyyyyyroooooo story. Daddy knew he should make noise to warn the bears he was nearby with the dogs. He was trying out shouting all the JOM names to see which calls worked the best. Yeh. Cayyyyroooo just trips off the tongue.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

daddy's favorite might be Twain, might be Darwin but he loved him some Admiral Nelson!
I seem to recall him remarking on seeing an old uniform (online? at a museum?) and being startled to see a (patched?) bullet hole, realizing that he, daddy, knew which battle it happened in.

sbwaters

Trafalgar. The bullet killed Nelson some hours later.

anonamom

Jim, Sunnyvale, interesting observation.

Why we all mourn his passing, shall miss him, and will long treasure his memory.

Jim Eagle

For daddy:

High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .​
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.​
— John Gillespie Magee, Jr

Jane


Walt Whitman (1819–1892). Leaves of Grass. 1900.

209. The Last Invocation


1

AT the last, tenderly,
From the walls of the powerful, fortress’d house,
From the clasp of the knitted locks—from the keep of the well-closed doors,
Let me be wafted.

2

Let me glide noiselessly forth; 5
With the key of softness unlock the locks—with a whisper,
Set ope the doors, O Soul!

3

Tenderly! be not impatient!
(Strong is your hold, O mortal flesh!
Strong is your hold, O love.)

sbwaters

I think Jane mentioned the recessional at 3 p.m.

If I drank beer, I’d open one and toast daddy at 3:01.

SBW!
Remember the morning the day after the big meetup you and W came back to Jane’s and we sat in the living room just hanging out and talking like we had known each other forever. Daddy was like that.

A poem I read in high school, and I always have remembered it. Too long to post here, but the last lines are:

Nelson-was Francis Drake!
O, what matters the uniform,
Or the patch on your eye or your pinned-up sleeve,
If your soul's like a North Sea storm? '

sbwaters

Daddy was like that.

Yes, he was! :-)
