I am going to have to go back to bed for a bit. I woke at 3:00 and couldn't get back to sleep for some time.

Maybe henry or one of you guys can keep an eye on Trump's Twitter feed, although I think he's now about to head to the palace to meet the Queen.

henry

I assume English is not required. Clearly citizenship or even residency don't matter. They know they gotta cheat bigly to win.

Instead, there would be no requirement “other than spoken or written” proof from someone seeking to register or vote. The resolution would also allow a voter to complete a change of address online or by phone.

IS GINA HASPEL THE NEXT SPYGATE DOMINO TO FALL? Did you know the current CIA Director is a loyalist to former CIA Director John Brennan? Did you know the current CIA Director was the agency’s London station chief in 2016? Did you know that put the current CIA Director at the command center of the U.S. government’s spying on the Trump campaign?

I also highly recommend LI's coverage of the gibson's/oberlin college case https://legalinsurrection.com/2019/06/gibsons-bakery-v-oberlin-college-trial-reflects-higher-ed-disconnect-from-the-lives-of-most-americans/

It should go to the jury this week. The emails the college officials sent out make it clear just how corrupt supposedly elite higher ed has become.

Pompeo had brought her on as deputy, when brennan was forced out, recall cord meyer was sent to London after he was ops chief and previous to that head of int organization labor media et al.

I thought Haspell was another swampy choice by Trump. But you do need people who know how to operate the organization.

One hopes Pompeo put enough of his people in to assure Haspell couldn’t get too far off the reservation without Trump knowing.

Yes, I've been duped. So sorry! Why do people post lies like that? The part about being a Trump supporter is also apparently not true.

Catching up is hard when you keep going back and forth looking for a link someone posted. That would be the latest Yaakov Aplebaum link. I thought it was this thread but could have been the previous one.

Can someone please post it if you have it or know where it is?

Reading Khan's OpEd in El-Gaurdian, he like every journalist over here misrepresents what Trump said after Charlottesville. Once you tell a lie and it is repeated every time the subject is brought up it becomes the truth.

That's a lot of "Must have" in that one article from Babbin. I appreciate his speculation, but speculation it remains. And no mention of Rome's role, which, by the way, has me wondering all over again about those notes supplied way back in 2002-03, but that's for another day.

When you are pregnant you have to drink this rather foul orange drink that gives doctors info on who is at risk for developing gestational diabetes so they can follow closely. Because I liked to cook my diet was always healthy enough that I didn't even need prenatal vitamins.

I did however always lose at least 5 pounds in the first trimester because of having to give up wine with dinner and those lovely margaritas at the excellent mexican restaurant near our old house. The doctor would ask why I was losing weight and I always admitted it was the removal of alcohol and she would grin and thank me for being honest about it.

Ignatz,

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I would be a lot more sanguine about Trump's reelection chances if he were undertaking these policies at the beginning of a business cycle rather than the end of one.
A poorly timed recession was fairly probable anyway and a trade war might make one more likely.
If it does, not only will he have a hard time winning a second term, but the ideas behind him and the "populist" movement he's leading will take a severe shot as well.
A high risk environment, but a risk worth taking since the country is dying anyway unless something drastic is done.

MissMarple2

Ignatz,

My dad had a furnace repair company and sheet metal shop, which our house was behind until we moved to the farm.

We used to take scrap gutters and downspouts and make long "obstacle courses" for rolling tennis balls, using some sawhorses to elevate one side. We also had a tree house we made out of a shipping skid and some scrap wood.

When we moved to the farm we used to walk on the barn rafters.

Amazingly, no one ever got a broken bone. The stitches I got were from cracking my head on a corner in the house when I slipped running after one of my sisters (7 stitches) and on the heel of my left hand when falling while holding a toy metal dishpan.

Melinda

The business cycle has been transformed since the corporate tax and regulatory cuts. The perception shared by The Street has more to do with the quality of their information sources (what we kvetch about every day here) and their personal circumstances being bombarded by negative news.

Removing excess credit as fuel to markets and a return to “America’s Business is Business.” Is slowly emerging from decades of thumb on the scale governing. If I were to point out one thing as the best indicator of “This time it’s different, it’s the resurgence of the Great Lakes fleet for the first time in nearly 40 years, so much so that mothballed ships are being brought back to service instead of postponed trips to the breakers, and a new order being placed for the first time in 35 years.

If you thought the 25 year economic wave after Reagan’s cuts were great, this is going to be even bigger, once it gets rolling.

Buckeye

And I am crazy for saying someone should have put lead is Soros's head long ago.

He has done more damage than if the Soviet Union had invaded with troops.

I didn’t think the Fonz could be that old. His mother lived in the penthouse apartment of the building I first moved into in Manhattan. I’d see him now and then. She passed around 20 years ago.

We wouldn't have thought twice about defending ourselves from that menace.

That "we" only encompasses about half the electorate. A good chunk of the other half would welcome them in, and happily inform on the rest of us so we'd be shipped off to the gulags.

Lovely photo!

Jack is Back (Again)!

That Aplebaum post on the Nigerian/Ghanian scammers made my head hurt like eating your ice cream too fast. And that is what you need to do with any of his posts. Read only 500 words at a time, think about it, re-read if necessary and then move on to the next 500 (plus the photos, graphs, etc.).

The guy reminds me of Harold Finch & his machine from POI but with exhausting detail on every subject he touches. BTW, our own JJ Minor made a cameo appearance in the Comments section.

JohnH

Iggy, as one of 7, we had all but two of the toys. We never got hurt from them. We were particularly clumsy however. My poor mom had to make 54 trips to the ER.

They definitely left off some doozies, water pressure rockets, Jarts and caps. We would scrape the powder out of the caps and make “bombs”. A little brother nearly lost a eye when one of the bombs left a 2 inch piece of glass embedded in his forehead just above his eyebrow. “Don’t tell mom”.

Jack is Back (Again)!

From that photo at 10:05 it appears that the Queen is fascinated with Trump the Leader who will most likely not be giving her a boxed collection of his speeches on CD.

JohnH

I was never hurt by any of those toys, but my mom had to run me to the ER a few times.

Once, when I was a 3 oe so I used a high chair to get on the kitchen counter. Got the bottle of baby aspirin out of a cupboard and downed the whole bottle. I still remember the tube going down my nose to pump out my stomach.

Another time I was standing on the rail on the front porch and took a swan dive into some evergreen bushes. Got a chunk part way down my throat that needed extracted.

Never broke any bones however.

George Will and Peggy Noonan seem pretty much the same. Anyone ever seen them together?

I cannot tell you how infuriated that tweet by Will made me this morning!

“A poorly timed recession was fairly probable anyway and a trade war might make one more likely.”

Agree. On the other hand, if Trump manages to wrangle a reasonable agreement out of the Chinese and the Mexicans in the next 9 months or so, there could be a well-timed stock market rally. That’s my hope.

I downed bottles of aspirin twice. One time was the morning of my Aunt Heidi's wedding. My sister, 4 years older was the flower girl and I think I was jealous. That was in Maine. The second time was at home in MA. Don't remember that one, and don't remember my stomach being pumped out twice.

--The business cycle has been transformed since the corporate tax and regulatory cuts. --

I hope so Mel. I remember saying a year or so ago that either the economy was coming to the end of its cycle or possibly there was so much pent up activity that had been deferred by Barry's 8 years of stagnation that maybe it would be different this time.
We'll certainly find out soon enough.

Momto2

MM - Don't you think the My Fair Lady comparison was an attempt to denigrate our First Lady? They have an incurable disease -- a parasite in their brain that seeks to cast a nasty light on anything and everything related to our President.

In searching for the Applebaum article this morning, I accidentally clicked on Anne Applebaum's Twitter account where she retweeted this awful comment. "My respect for the Queen (which is large despite my republican leanings) will be even greater if she makes sure @realDonaldTrump does not manage to get his ghastly family photographed with hers as part of his effort to project himself and family as some kind of US equivalent"

Momto2,

That Applebaum comment is terrible. What is wrong with her? Barron doesn't even go on trips like this, and neither did any of the other kids, whom I find charming and well-spoken. The only family member with him is Melania, who looks beautiful.

Possibly the Today Show was trying to denigrate, although comparing her to Audrey Hepburn isn't exactly an insult, and most of their viewers and readers now probably haven't seen the movie.
