@realDonaldTrump

Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought! @JudicialWatch

narc-

"The market" and "The economy" are two distinctly different things.

GUS

Greenland's population is 56,000

henry

Gus, sounds like they need half a million migrants, asap!

Narciso

True, but market moves sometimes correlates.

Narciso

Just a little schadenfreude:

Every time I hear Greenland mentioned, I cannot help but think of this hymn, which was sung by the missionaries in James Michener's novel "Hawaii."

From Greenland’s icy mountains,
From India’s coral strand,
Where Afric’s sunny fountains
Roll down their golden sand;
From many an ancient river,
From many a palmy plain,
They call us to deliver
Their land from error’s chain.

2
What though the spicy breezes
Blow soft on Ceylon’s isle;
Though every prospect pleases,
And only man is vile;
In vain with lavish kindness
The gifts of God are strown;
The heathen, in his blindness,
Bows down to wood and stone.

3
Can we, whose souls are lighted
With wisdom from on high;
Can we to men benighted
The lamp of life deny?
Salvation! O salvation!
The joyful sound proclaim,
Till each remotest nation
Has learned Messiah’s name.

4
Waft, waft, ye winds, His story;
And you, ye waters, roll,
Till, like a sea of glory,
It spreads from pole to pole;
Till o’er our ransomed nature,
The Lamb for sinners slain,
Redeemer, King, Creator,
In bliss returns to reign.

MM-

I was hoping you'd ask for a wrapper for that, please. Thanks.

Melinda

nevermind, it's been wrapped. Thanks anyway!

GUS

Going to have to use solar panels to charge up that Tesla.

Narciso

Theyre getting rid oc the bus routes in milwaukee, do you get the flintstones cars instead.

GUS

Yes Narciso, but we have a choo choo that goes around in circles.

Jack is Back!

Reading about the new turnkey Mexican airport at Texcoco reminds me that we were studying that before I went to London in 1996. If I recall, we didn't like the risk scenario that revolved around uncertain subsurface conditions. But it was in the tens of millions even back then.

Chauncey Starr when he headed up EPRI used to caution that every MegaWatt of renewables had to have an equivalent of dispatchable fossil or nuclear power because of its inherent unreliabililty. Nice to see how that is working out:)

Jane

Article doesn't even touch on most of the conversation. And my memory sucks, but I learned so much listening to that, and I'm not exactly completely uninformed.

Narciso

Theres some controversy over heathrow expansion isnt it.

And yet another view:Esther Goldberg "I wonder who the marketing genius was who first used the term "sex slave" to describe girls who wanted to visit mansions, fly on private planes and hobnob with celebrities in return for sex."

After following "Modified"* keto for last 18 months, my moderately high blood pressure is now low ~105/76, consistently for the last 6 months, and I'm down 15 lbs, which leaves room for more.

I follow keto, mostly, (henry has seen my exceptions up close) during the day, while spouse believes "recent studies" and wants us to go solely plant based, including "good carbs", courtesy of our good research partners at NBC.

henry

Melinda, technically beef is plant based. Cows eat plants.

Narciso

So hos long can you do keto for an extendes period.

Narciso

Yez miss roberts seems to have gone along for the ride, without expecting to pay for a ticket, but why disnt she tell patterson about mitchell and richardsom, why did same collaborate with clinton

Narciso

It appearz the blacklist and blindspot were underplaying the situation.

Melinda

I'm told "red meat" is the worst thing for men, ever.

My deep concerns for the Chernobyl herd were not appreciated.

Ester Goldberg is a guy, and an act.

Sharyl cites publicly a Twitterati Drive By who scolds her for not replying via DM when he criticized her bias citing Brock products. Complaints arose when her followers returned the favor with their own deep research into his biases. Entertainment with a large dollop of ButtHurt follows:

Forever.

Anonamom can pipe in, but I believe you should think of it as an alternate long term diet/eating habit.

Oh snap, theyve handing the puffer fish they cant understand why others wint inbibe.

Trump's tweet referred to a 2017 white paper published by the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology (AIBRT) suggesting that Clinton's popular vote margin was almost entirely attributable to pro-Clinton bias at Google.

Every time I hear Greenland mentioned, I cannot help but think of this hymn

I remember a catchy old ballad from the Limeliters records I used to listen to as a child. The lines I remember were something like:

Greenland is a dreadful place
A land they seldom go
Where there's ice and snow and the whale whistles blow...

Anyone know that one? I'll have to Google.

jimmyk

Found it. My WJOM contribution for the day.

The part I sort of remembered comes at the very end.

Why do you comment as SMOD @ AoS but not here?

"So hos long can you do keto for an extendes period."

As Buckeye said, "Forever". It's a very healthy way to live. I go on and off, but I always feel better when I'm on.

Rewriting the classics.

That's a pretty funny story, though when I saw the headline I was sure that somehow someone was putting Trump into '1984.'

Neo

Donald Trump's Twitter habit has caused no shortage of controversy during his presidency. Now, Democrats are hoping to turn it into a liability for his re-election.

One of the party's top think tanks has been privately encouraging lawmakers and candidates to attack the president for failing to deliver on the promises he made because he's too consumed by social media. It is, undoubtedly, the first case of a campaign tactic geared towards turning a president's online behavior into a liability; though rarely has a president's reliance on - and use of - a media bullhorn been such a defining personality trait. Those pushing it have offered new polling data to bolster the idea that the argument will move voters.

About two months ago, the Center for American Progress commissioned the firm Civis to test messaging that framed Trump not as corrupt or unethical but as "ineffective" - and to attribute that ineffectiveness to his being absorbed by his Twitter feed. The results were notable. Of the six messages tested on Trump, the idea that he was "more focused on his Twitter account than on delivering on his promises" was the only one that consistently moved the vote towards Democrats, including among Obama-Trump voters.

.. two questions .. why would you telegraph this strategy to The Daily Beast ?
.. why would you make an issue of something that was ineffective ?

Jack is Back!

Great idea, jimmyk!

Trump flies Air Force One not Airstrip One:) and sure as hell isn't. Winston Smith. Yet Fake News is damn close to the Ministry of Truth.

Of course, the left will cast Trump as Big Brother because of his popularity.

I’ll write those guys in India and suggest that for their next re-write😜

jimmyk

A couple of lines on Greenland stolen from Althouse commenters:

"Trump wants to make Greenland great."

"I never thought about Greenland much, but now I want it."

"Cars go too fast and take up too much space in American cities. Let's get rid of them, says @ryanlcooper: http://bit.ly/2HaHktO "
People are finally coming around to my idea of getting rid of cities.
Jack is Back!

Dave,

The only problem with getting rid of cities, most of whom are blue hell’s, is that their teat-suckers come and populate our safe, well run communities.

No, let them continue to fester as a leftist and visible cancer of their ideas and ideals.

henry

Dave, as JiB said... leave them in the cities. Take away the cars, then knock down the bridges. There is no escape from Stalag 13 New York.

jimmyk

Ok, henry, just give me a couple days notice.

Catsmeat,

Which begs the question for you. Have you ever thought about how you would have written certain passages in Jane Austen novels. It must be a challenging temptation to someone who is teaching the subject. I never thought about it until I read that article. I wonder if there are fake classics out there that have actually been taught?

Melinda

Oh, you know that “Bold!!11!!” act by FB & Twitter against “bad China accounts”?

Yeah, the check did clear:

Good afternoon! It has been so rainy here that the stream is running really high for August.So,Maine has many pick-your-own strawberries,blueberries and apples signs along the back roads. Why not a pick-your- own hemp? A mid-coast organic farm is one of the few certified in the state to sell hemp. I'm so old I remember picking buckets of blueberries this time of year with my siblings. Ha. Hemp is the new blueberries. :)

Jack is Back!

I don't know about the rest of you but If I had Epsteins assets especially the liquid ones, I would be challenging every accusation and indictment. Nothing to lose, plus with the right criminal attorneys I expect he could have got bail and temporary freedom.

He was not a candidate for a "forget it, I am done" kind of suicide.

Very interesting Melinda @ 4:27,especially the mention of Irving. Hubby read it and said,this (Irving) all goes back to one of our current Senators who was a former governor. I don't think I can count the number of Irving gas stations/convenience stores in northern New England.

That Trudeau thing is just maddening. I defy you to find something that smarmy in Trump's government, because he kicks people out.

Plus Ross and Mnuchin are rich on their own, so they don't need to do any smarmy machinations.
