Wonderful Church service at Camp David. Thank you!

Captain Hate,

So, it's a variation on what I discussed at 9:04.

Who benefits from those companies being squeezed? Which water company can pass the impossible standards and is ready to fill the gap?

That's the root of the problem: these unelected agencies can play winners and losers for any reason they want or are directed to. The DOJ destroyed Arthur Anderson in an action that was reversed 9-0 by the Supreme Court after the damage was done. And the architect of that, Andrew Weissmann, just signed a whopper book deal. Where is the justice? Where is the outrage?

MissMarple2

This has the BBC clutching her pearls:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47670717

Pompeo tells Christian Broadcasting Network on Purim that Trump, like Queen Esther, may have been raised for such a time as this.

When I was a kid up until at least the 1967 war, it was a given that we rooted for Israel as the only democracy in the Middle East. It's amazing how rooting for and helping Israel has suddenly become suspicious to the democrats, when they used to hold that belief. Harry Truman was the one who enabled Israel's establishment.

James D.

MM, it’s not sudden. The Dems have for the most part hated Israe and embraced anti-semitism since st least the mid 1990’s.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I think book deals should be investigated. I firmly believe they are used as one of the methods of paying people off.

There was ZERO justification for the massive advances Michelle and Barack Obama got, and never mind Jim Acosta.

There was plenty of outrage here when I posted the news of Weissmann getting that book deal, but if you think that the press, who never bothered to wonder why ALL of the attorneys Mueller hired were democrats, will say anything, don't hold your breath.

I know EXACTLY how people in the Soviet Union felt trying to get news from behind the Iron Curtain. We are fortunate in the rise of the internet in that we can track this stuff without relying on the MSM.

Not on CH’s list of beers, but tasty just the same.

CH, re. the arsenic story?

“California nonprofit Center for Environmental Health”.

Yeah, big grains of salt on that. Consumer Reports isn’t appreciably better, they went to hell in a hand basket when they stopped doing statistics on wash machines and injected themselves into political questions.

James D.,

I know it's not really sudden, but WHY did they change? Who instituted this policy? Is it money from Qatar?

Momto2

Jim - Just keep going with your Keto trial. Before Keto my BP was flirting with 150/90. Yesterday it was 128/72 after just 9 weeks of Keto eating.
If you like Big Mac hamburgers - this recipe is really good. (Only 2 net carbs) https://www.wholesomeyum.com/recipes/big-mac-salad-cheeseburger-salad-low-carb-gluten-free/?fbclid=IwAR3nuFFF-w1VESTqRMSsl6yUPb6WFx952u_C878qlIo5QcwtmbKtPjZcXCc

MissMarple2

Momto2,

Thanks for that recipe. I have been trying to convince my daughter to try keto, as she needs to lose about 20 pounds and has elevated cholesterol.

She's been doing calorie counting a la Weight Watchers but I think keto would help her more.

I need to scour around that site and find some recipes like that salad, so that she won't miss pasta. Because of the food budget I cannot run 2 separate diet plans.

Kavanaugh has already signalled he's "no friend of agency power".

Yuengling is a good brewery. If I didn't consciously restrict my beer consumption they'd be in my regular summer rotation.

How they illegally donated to the Clinton campaign.

MM, I think they always felt they way. They’re just emboldened to take off the mask and openly proclaim their hatred of Israel and Jews generally three days.

Headline:Trump administration reviewing foreign money to US colleges

The U.S. Education Department has opened investigations into foreign funding at Georgetown University and Texas A&M University as part of a broader push to monitor international money flowing to American colleges.

Both universities are being ordered to disclose years of financial records amid concerns they have not fully reported their foreign gifts and contracts to the federal government, according to letters sent to the schools Thursday and obtained by The Associated Press.

The inquiries are part of a broader campaign to scrutinize foreign funding going to universities and to improve reporting by schools, according to a Trump administration official familiar with the effort.

Yuengling is a huge fave of brew lovers on BJG blog too :)
I assumed from the name that it was a Chinese beer till they set me straight.

Thanks for the encouragement, Momto2.
I definitely want to give keto a more extended trial.
Though I'll have to fall into defensive, "best effort" mode while traveling.

Jane

Jim,

The longer you stay on Keto, the easier it is. I tend to stay away from things like Keto bread, because it makes me crave french bread, altho I will say I love keto ice cream.

sbwaters

Jim keto is best effort, not torture.

To help though. Try to separate carbs from protein by an hour.

If I have an ice cream cone or something else, I’ll minimize protein until the body stops sending signals to store everything as fat.

When our Country had no debt and built everything from Highways to the Military with CASH, we had a big system of Tariffs. Now we allow other countries to steal our wealth, treasure, and jobs - But no more! The USA is doing great, with unlimited upside into the future!

Nader Mohamad Farhat, a Lebanese national who ran a large, currency exchange biz in Paraguay, who has suspected ties to Hezbollah, was just extradited to Miami to face money laundering charges.

henry,

Melinda and I have been noticing the number of money laundering arrests.

I wish someone would put up a web site that shows all of the revenue streams that the Left is losing. That foreign money to colleges is another one, along with all of the arrests in child porn and trafficking, the drug cartels, Planned Parenthood, etc.

MissMarple2

Boy, there sure is a lot of news today!

I am going to put my feet up for a bit. Back later.

henry

That Lebanese above is Hezbollah

Have to thank clarice for the biggest laugh line of the weekend.
From Pieces;

--Whether or not the President live tweets them, even the Washington Post concedes they will be awful. In the short time available to each candidate he/she will be desperate to stand out in a way that reasoned argument could not.--

Like that was an option. Stop, you're killing me!

Yuengling only became available here within the last couple of years. Before that, a case or two always came home with my boys when we'd travel to NY to fish. The oldest brewery in America.

Melinda

Thanks for the excellent take on Gundy, Clarice. I bet the reception Sec. Perdue got for the USDA Kansas City plans may be a light precursor for the unfortunate adjustment to the greater DC home valuations you might be experience in the next few years. Looking at the housing market since the credit collapse, the loss of thousands of jobs in the financial biz, as management tries to maintain the pre-collapse pay scale, has undercut multiple markets as those ex-Manhattan management rotations stopped. The tax base has not been well managed by Blue Hell governments as they try and maintain past spending levels by rejiggering their millage methods.

This has yet to fully play out, but it is happening.

Tom Arnold managed to find the one dem candidate who is stupider and more obnoxious than he is.

Melinda, as the govt moves out, more non-govt employers move in. Luckily for us our house is in the city in easy commute to everything. The problems now are hitting owners of Macmansions in the suburbs.

My daughter is going to this place:

Stephen Schwarzman, ceo of blackstone, has donated 150 million pounds to oxford u to create an institute on the ethics of ai.

Melinda

It always works in ripples, price points and associative costs weighing on every transaction. Macroeconomics appearing in pricing, every day. Some appear small in movement, whereas other locations it’s much more glaring. The “Nonstop Flights to Beijing” spoke and hub phenomena on housing seems to be the most glaring as their own credit collapse adjusts.

Glad your area has a built in replacement market, others aren’t so fortunate.

Jack is Back!

rse,

Schwarzman and his wife do a lot of giving to NYC inner city schools, mostly private and parochial. When we were trying to save Mercy ut we approached his wife (she is Catholic) but ran out of time.

Yes, Oprah. Trump would clobber her.

Schwarzman also started a $100 million scholarship program for Chinese students modeled on the Rhodes program at Oxbridge.

Yes, Oprah. Trump would clobber her.

You know the donks have nothing when they resort to this. Orca offended half her base by her obnoxious shilling for Gaylord and Big Mike.

Trump was a gift to the moribund GOP and frankly one they didn't deserve. We are the ones who deserved Trump after being sold out by the ruling class. Both branches of the Uniparty are trying to smother that and keep it from going viral.

Jack? Is it just me, but didn't Cameroon have a player at least 15 yards off side????
