jimmyk, most busing was court imposed. At least in MO. Judges run amok, both 50 years ago and now.

Seems likely that one of Kim's motives is to assure that the dynasty continues beyond his reign. He is believed to have 3 children, the eldest a 10-yr-old son.

Great Pieces Clarice!
It’s amazing to watch Dems promise illegals the sun, moon & stars while peeing on American values & its hard working citizenry whether one is white black blue gray upper class lower class it’s Trump who makes every effort to unite us all while Dems say & do anything they can to destroy us kill us and our unborn babies etc
Seeing the media ignore all calls to confront any of these gutless candidates on their self serving BS lies to get elected is disgusting
I think the president needs to remain vigilant but I’m more confident he will win reelection
Thank you for all you say & do!
Have a good one everybody

This detail at the DMZ will be skipped over for generations, but this “giving of face”, so naturally, makes walls disappear:

That’s a creative master of Asian culture at work. Utter genius. By asking the question, as he did, all of the honor was given to Kim, as a gift. It cost DJT nothing in our cultural norms, but it resonates to the core of all Koreans, which was his complete aim.

Utterly brilliant, thought out, and executed, strategy.

Melinda,

I so appreciate you explaining that. I wondered about him asking when I watched it last night, but I was so dang tired I didn't say anything, and then forgot about it this morning!

jimmyk

Yes but the solon cant admit this, because hes been virtue signaling at least since bork

He must think he's got the nomination sewn up, since otherwise it would be in his best interest to distinguish himself from the commie herd.

henry, yes, it was court-ordered, but by federal judges, so I presume there were federal laws used as justification.

After reading this mornings Pieces, I have a question about the Census citizenship question: Is there anything that prevents the Commerce Dept from creating the questionnaire that they want, with all of the supporting software and database structures, training, web sites, paper copies, etc., and then the courts have to remove it? (And take responsibility for any delays which occur, of course.) As a software developer and designer for 3-1/2 decades, my opinion is that this is the correct way to carry out the project when there is any doubt about the content. This decision seems to me to be at the very core of the executive function -- the logistical details of carrying out the projects which the law and constitution require.

Jane

Don't forget the media James.

What a F1 GP in Austria. Verstappen just passed Leclerc to go first with 2 laps remaining. What a race.

clarice

I have no idea cathy, but I don't see that as a possibility. Hugh hewitt suggests the president prepare an executive order mandating the inclusion of the question on the grounds that besides determining eligibility to vote and preventing vote fraud, it is essential since there's been so much talk about expanding health care and such to illegals we have an accurate picture of the numbers we are considering and the cost. Then the Secretary of Commerce presents this to the district court.

Old Lurker

But seriously, Cathy, I have thought that would be a good strategy on many of the Executive actions that have been rejected even by sole judges in remote courts.

Three obvious problems I know.

1. Trump might not have enough GS-Wonderfuls who would follow his orders to implement an action they do not support...and they do not support the MAGA Agenda.

2. Acting in defiance of specific court orders would energize the Impeachment Mob.

3. And the GOPe would not protect him.

That said, it all comes down to how much time Trump thinks we have to right the course. If he assumes four more years of himself will do it, then he will continue to slog it out as he has been attempting.

But if he thinks the Tipping Point is nigh, then I would say let loose on all fronts all at once and see if the people will support it...and dare Congress to fire him.

Verstappen bombed it in on the inside, and pushed LeClerc off the track. Then had the nerve to complain LeClerc turned in on him.

Despite the media's endless attempts to portray our President as inept and clueless, his knowledge of human nature and history of business negotiations continues to prove them wrong.

I've said it many times before. OBAMA started the RUSSIA bullshit Dec 19 2017. After claiming that it would be impossible for Russia to do such a thing, ONE MONTH before leaving office, OBAMA called for an investigation into RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE with our ELECTIONS. It was a desperate set up. Obama and his criminal clowns WERE DONE. The FRAME UP was alreadly planned. Just ask "ANDY".

Remember how the Left claimed that throwing mere milkshakes at people was a funny and harmless way to show political disagreement?

Well, exactly as EVERYONE predicted, things escalated quickly and now Antifa is mixing caustic chemicals into the milkshakes they throw at the victims:

https://www.foxnews.com/us/ antifa-conservative-protests-turn-violent-as-demonstrators-throw-milkshakes -of-quick-dry-cement-at-police-and-onlookers

"Some of the demonstrators turned violent, throwing milkshakes said to be mixed with quick-drying cement, raw eggs and pepper spray."

The euphemism "quick-drying cement" disguises what they're really talking about -- the main ingredient in quick-drying cement is Calcium Hydroxide, which is a highly corrosive alkali and can cause chemical burns:

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

Mix that with pepper spray and you[ve got quick the concoction.

And I predict it will only escalate from here to worse chemicals.

Want a blackpill?

I think zombie is right.

This violence is not only not being ruthlessly stomped out by the local authorities, it's being tacitly assisted by the local authorities.

Far from applying pressure to end it, the press is mostly ignoring it, and some on the press fringes are encouraging it.

Eventually someone, not even necessarily "of the right" will fight back and kill some of these clowns.

This will be the trigger for a crackdown, not on the thugs "who are only exercising their free speech rights", but on the targets of the violence who had the temerity to fight back against the thugs.

Longer this goes without being ended, the worse it'll be when it does explode.

Captain Hate

Gus, that the GOP convention went off without a hitch in 2016 is still a source of amazement to me. That we didn't have Katshit, Mutt Rombley, the Bush Crime Family or any other prior presidential candidate except Bob Dole probably had something to do with that.

@KamalaHarris

Two decades after Brown v. Board, I was only the second class to integrate at Berkeley public schools. Without that decision, I likely would not have become a lawyer and eventually be elected a Senator from California.

That’s the power a Supreme Court Justice holds.


With the comment I quoted above;
From second grade on, Kamala Harris went to school in Westmount -- an overwhelmingly Jewish, wealthy suburb of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Lying is not second nature to her. It's her FIRST nature.

Not only is her claim profoundly dishonest and ludicrous, she commits the cardinal sin of thinking anyone else thinks it's a good thing there is another incompetent, crooked lawyer and infernally busy body senator in the world committed to making our lives more miserable and expecting us to ask "please bitch, may I have some more" of the misery she dishes out.
She has always struck me as preternaturally ambitious, dangerous, duplicitous and, more than anything else, profoundly, internally angry, in a way bumbling, conniving dopes like even the Clintons and Barry weren't.

Re. Erickson's comment...

Those who are complaining most loudly about the "enemy of the people" appellation being applied to our wonderful news media are the same people who make no objection at all to throwing the label "Nazi" around.

Forgot to say, last summer a mountain lion was spotted a few blocks from our house. It's fairly hilly.

A woman here had let her small dog out just before going to bed, and he started barking and growling. She got a shadowy, dim picture of the lion and the newspaper published it.

I would be amazed to get to see one, but afraid for our pets. Don't think the woods are thick enough in our neighborhood, plus we don't have deep gullies for them to travel along. Lots of woods, though.

We used to see lots of coyotes when we lived in the country. One of our horses (Chance's Prince, Thoroughbred-Quarter horse cross) hated them -- if he saw them crossing our pasture, he'd gallop toward it and run it off. He didn't like our dog, though. Our other horse didn't mind them and would let Forfar, one of our shepherds, eat out of his grain tub. :) Some of the sweet feed has an aroma like maple syrup.

One time (long ago) we had a horse that liked watermelon. :) His name was Sailor Boy Braz, quarter horse, Copper Chestnut, flax mane and tail. Wasn't gelded.

Oh, something else that's gotten my notice.

Since we moved back here some years ago, we've been reminded again and again about the 1921 Tulsa Race Riots. A terrible tragedy where 'Black Wall Street', as well as other neighborhoods were burned. Just after we moved, there was a months'long campaign and search for mass graves. None were discovered. The search is on again. But, the tragedy is now being called Tulsa Race Massacre, and I read an account the other day that supposedly people went up in airplanes and bombed part of north Tulsa -- using home-made napalm, the first time it had been used in our country. (I'd never read that before, and I'm not sure it's true.)
Anyway, the community leaders are determined to find mass graves.

"Bynum announced in October that the city will initially examine three sites for possible mass graves related to the 1921 massacre: Oaklawn Cemetery, which has been searched before for unmarked graves; Rolling Oaks Memorial Gardens, formerly called Booker T. Washington Cemetery; and property near Newblock Park.

"The last time the sites were examined was in the late 1990s and early 2000. That study was led by the Tulsa Race Riot Commission. This time, the Oklahoma Archaeological Survey, which assisted in the initial study, and the state Medical Examiner’s Office will lead the effort.

“The technology we have available (today) is light years from what they had available to them” two decades ago, Bynum said.

"If anomalies consistent with mass graves are identified at any of the sites, excavation would occur."

/snip/

"“This is not DNA on somebody that got killed a couple of weeks ago and you just go to the next-of-kin and get a match,” he said. “We have to find descendants of these folks who are dispersed, at this point, to points all over the world.”

"The massacre, which was known as the Tulsa Race Riot for generations, occurred May 31-June 1, 1921. Dozens of deaths were confirmed, but some estimate that hundreds of people were killed. Hundreds more were injured, and thousands were left homeless. The prosperous black business district on Greenwood Avenue was destroyed, as was much of the black residential area.

"Bynum told the Tulsa World last year that he has been thinking about the project for years, including when he served on the City Council.

"“I always thought, if I am ever mayor and in a position to have executive authority, that I would do something about it,” he said then. “Because I think if there are mass graves there, the citizens of Tulsa deserve to know, and the victims and their families deserve to know it.”"

Talk about reparations -- we don't have to go back to the Civil War.
