Jack is Back!

mike in houston,

Once again, the difference between American English and English-English:) I think we would all be surprised on how many theses or reports or essays have been written not understanding the difference.

'You know good and damn well the allegations Trump was facing when he took office...'

Hahaha!! You started with 'charges' - a term with a specific legal definition - and then in your reply switched to 'investigations' - a term with a specific legal definition - and have now switched to 'allegations'!!

And then you accuse me of quibbling? 😂

JIB, 500 attendance is always a somewhat mysterious number. The Speedway doesn’t publish the number of seats they have in grandstands, nor the number of tickets they sell. They claimed the grandstands were sold out this year.

At any given moment, thousands are in restroom or concession lines, or otherwise out of their seats. With the threatened rain, decent numbers of people with tickets who come from some distance chose not to make the trip.

From my history there, looks a pretty good crowd. 200K easily, probably 250K with the infield GA.

Thanks, henry. I see stuff like that and I don't think of reflections.

I think Rossi was indicating displeasure at being nearly run into the inside wall WAY down the front straight. By Bordais, who just caused the red-flag wreck.

Rep. Liz Cheney Says Govt Plot Against Trump ‘Sounds Like a Coup’ and ‘Could Well Be Treason’

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, was attacked by several Deep State actors on Sunday after she said on ABC’s This Week that the plot against President Trump by high level law enforcement officials “sounds an awful lot like a coup. And it could well be treason.”

...

RADDATZ: And the president attacks back. Is that the right thing to do?

CHENEY: Look, I think that, you know, what we have seen…

RADDATZ: Retweeting these videos.

CHENEY: I think what is crucially important to remember here is that you had Strzok and Page, who were in charge of launching this investigation, and they were saying things like we must stop this president. We need an insurance policy against this president. That, in my view, when you have people that are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that, that sounds an awful lot like a coup. And it could well be treason. And I think that we need to know more. We need to know what was Jim Comey’s role in all this? These people reported to him. Andy McCabe, reported to him. What was Comey’s role in that? And that is what the attorney general is going to be focused on and should be.

RADDATZ: Let me talk about this, because you saw what the president did with Attorney General Barr. He said he could declassify all this intelligence. Do you worry that sources and methods might be revealed? Do you have any problems with him saying declassify this intelligence even though he won’t give the Mueller report — an unredacted Mueller report to Congress?

CHENEY: Look, first of all, the Mueller report has been delivered to Congress, every single piece of it that could be within the law. The amount that’s been redacted that’s available for key officials in Congress to see, the amount that’s been redacted, is something like less than 2 percent. So, it has been turned over.

Secondly, I have complete confidence in Attorney General Barr in terms of this decision that he’s going to make.

And thirdly, as I said before, he has to have the ability to look at what happened. Think about what happened. Think about the fact that we had people that are at the highest levels of our law enforcement in this nation saying that they were going to stop a duly elected president of the United States, saying they needed an insurance policy against him. That is something that simply cannot happen.

We have to have confidence in our law enforcement. And the attorney general has got to get to the bottom of what happened, how it was that those people were allowed to misuse and abuse their power that way.

I like that Dale Jr. is impressed with the driving. Different than NASCAR but didn't one driver once go from Indy to Daytona for the 600 one time?

Rossi is some athlete especially his mental capacity and strategic mind.

JIB, a few drivers have Done the Double. Most recent was NASCAR guy Kurt Busch. He did a remarkable job at Indy.

Tony Stewart is the only driver who has completed the whole 1100 miles. Stewart is a tough guy, but he was laid out on the asphalt when he got out of the car after the 600 in Charlotte.

Jeff Carlson:

Impact of Barr’s Declassification Authority Triggers Political, Media Panic

In a stroke of irony, the New York Times rushed out a story decrying Barr’s investigation and the pending declassification, citing potential risk to a CIA Asset from the declassification. The reality is the article by the New York Times appeared to be designed to actually burn that same CIA source in advance of the pending declassification.

The description provided by the New York Times—male, still alive, long-nurtured by the CIA, close to Putin, highly placed and provided information to the CIA about his involvement in Russia’s 2016 election interference—appears sufficient to allow for foreign intelligence agencies to determine the source’s underlying identity.

The source being discussed by the New York Times was not your run-of-the-mill CIA asset. Former CIA Director John Brennan viewed this source as so important that he “would bring reports from the source directly to the White House, keeping them out of the president’s daily intelligence briefing for fear that the briefing document was too widely disseminated, according to the officials. Instead, he would place them in an envelope for Mr. Obama and a tiny circle of aides to read.”

The article—and the description of the CIA asset provided in the article—appears to be a preemptive move to get information into the public domain in front of the impending release from Barr’s investigation.

Etc.

BRUSSELS (AP) — A European Parliament election that could reshape the political order across the continent drew toward a close Sunday with the anti-immigrant far right projected to win in France, and Germany’s centrist governing party headed for heavy losses as well.

The four days of balloting across the 28 European Union countries were seen as a test of the influence of the nationalist, populist and hard-right movements that have swept the continent.

Exit polls in France indicated that Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally party came out on top, in an astounding rebuke for French President Emmanuel Macron, who has made EU integration the heart of his presidency.

Exit polls indicated the party of German Chancellor Angela Merkel also suffered major losses.

With the stakes high, turnout across the bloc — not counting Britain, which is quitting the EU — was put a preliminary 51%, a 20-year high. An estimated 426 million people were eligible to vote in what was considered the most important European Parliament election in decades. Full results were expected overnight.

The balloting, which began Thursday, pitted supporters of closer unity against those who consider the EU a meddlesome and bureaucratic presence and want to return power to national governments and sharply restrict immigration.

Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, a major figure among the anti-migrant hard-line nationalists, said that he felt a “change in the air” and that a victory by his right-wing League party would “change everything in Europe.”

Mainstream center-right and center-left parties were widely expected to hold on to power in the 751-seat legislature that sits in both Brussels and Strasbourg. But the nationalist and populist parties that are hostile to the EU were expected to make important gains that could complicate the workings of the Parliament.

Some have speculated that Brennan may have leaked the information of a source close to Putin to the NYT:

Let me get this straight: John Brennan calls President Trump treasonous. The next day, he calls the New York Times and apparently reveals to them that the United States intelligence community has placed “a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin”. Unreal… https://t.co/Oa7qeUvtfQ

Here are some helps I can offer for people having trouble.

Typepad doesn't think all sites are legit. MSM and a few think tank blogs like Townhall and Heritage, yes. Otherwise, you post the link but it disappears.

I have found that if I add a sentence or two of comment with the link, it WILL post it. Have no idea why this is true.

As far as logging in, I now log in with my Twitter id, as it works every time. The only problem is that when it logs you in, it takes you to the first page. However, if you post in the box on the first page and then hit "post another comment" it will take you to the last page. I hope that is understandable.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

LOL Dave and Henry.

We were at the AAA game today, but left early. It was 95 at first pitch. By the 5th inning Ariel was red faced and no amount of chilled Propel would cool her off. She downed a sippie cup on the way home and fell asleep in the carseat.

We moved from the second row behind home plate to the first base side to shaded seats before the game even started. Sparse crowd, too, for a Sunday. I think everyone is at the Lake or Beach. You could probably walk across Lake Lanier today with all the gazillion boats.

We have box seats for next Friday's Braves game. I'll be sure to go pour a milkshake on those evil strike recording racists! ;)
