The Failing New York Times, in one of the most devastating portrayals of bad journalism in history, got caught by a leaker that they are shifting from their Phony Russian Collusion Narrative (the Mueller Report & his testimony were a total disaster), to a Racism Witch Hunt.....

.....”Journalism” has reached a new low in the history of our Country. It is nothing more than an evil propaganda machine for the Democrat Party. The reporting is so false, biased and evil that it has now become a very sick joke...But the public is aware! #CROOKEDJOURNALISM

I once ordered a short blonde at Starbucks (for those who wouldn't be caught dead in a Starbucks, blonde is the lightest Starbucks roast, and short is the smallest cup of coffee one can get at a Starbucks). The barista asked me what was wrong with a short brunette? She was a short brunette. With my usual sense of political correctitude, I said there was no short brunette on the menu, or I would have ordered a cup of it. We both had a good laugh.

Thomas Collins,

LOL! Thank you for explaining, as I have never been I a Starbucks in my life.

Good Morning! TC,have you read the speculation about Joe Joe Joe challenging Ed Markey for the Senate. Ha,poor Mr. Frosty.

Ah thats the guy who pretends to know spanish?

Thomas Collins

Short (8 oz.), tall (12 oz.), grande (16 oz.), and venti (24 oz.), MM3. At one point the company was thinking about introducing a larger size, but I don't know whether they did. Oddly enough, if you ask for the sizes, short is not mentioned, even though it was the original Starbucks size. In addition, those bookstore and highway rest stop coffee shops operating under the Starbucks name typically don't serve a short size.

I think I have just locked up the 2019 JOM Gold Medal for Purveyor of Useless Coffee Shop Information!

OL,

My wine cellar (actually a special enviroment/room at 56 degrees F) is stocked with mainly French (Bordeaux) wines. Includes 12 unopened cases of pre-2000 and 2000 (great year). They were already in the multi-thousand range but thanks to Trump my investment has doubled:)

Lately, I have been drinking "open house" wines neighbors bring over when you have them for dinner.

Today, Mrs. JiB sat outside with our covfefe's and it was the first time this summer we had a nice cool breeze and it is was off the SW. Pretty early for mid 70 level temps here. Wonder if that means 'Cane season to soon start?

Narciso

Its been a bit of a research project in cuba in the 40s, which aspired to a green nude deal of sorts with the 1940 constitution, the student activists that deposed the previous president became a power on to themselves, fidel and sone of his rivals arose out of thar atmosphere.

Hey!!! Does anyone know if Starbucks sells a SHORT BLONDE??

Bela1

Hi there Marlene,
Yes, I'm in MA and I was just trying to figure out who this Joe is that may run against that leech, Markey. My first thought when I learned it was Joe K is "oh dear Lord, help us all!".

I can't stand Markey, Warren, Biden or any other Dem running.

I like Lewandowski & do hope he runs in NH because I think he'd make a great Senator. Trump, I think will take NH this time but I still worry deeply about what Soros plans to do. We're in for some trying times until the next election...

Off to the dump with my son. TTYL.

Perhaps, Chris Cuomo is having some career anxiety since his Southampton home on Corrigan Street is for sale. I think for $2.75 million.

He does have a screw loose if you count drag-racing in Southampton:)

GUS,

I learned about Seward's Folly in HIGH SCHOOL.

GUS

Chris Cuomo is a fucking stooge. Calling him a douche bag would be unfair to douche bags.
I think someone should call him FREDO. It fits.

Thanks for the hat tip clarice. I can see this conspiracy snowballing forever.

I'm still laughing at meme someone (i think hoyden) posted about a customer being asked his name. The customer yelled out, "may the Lord be with you." To which all the customers responded, "and also with you." (which was changed a few years ago)

I love Lewandowski and he's one of the few I trust around the president. It's a Lowell thing!

GUS

Lovely Miss M. I learned about Sewards Folly in grade school. I doubt todays recent college grads know what Sewards folly is. But they prolllly know about ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE.

Tom C. Thanks, can I borrow $20 for a cup o'starbucks???

In Vienna, the locals order their coffee as “melange”. Strong espresso and hot milk. Perfect for a European breakfast of breads, butter, charcuterie and cheeses.

I wonder if there is a Starbucks in the Cafe Capital of the world.

Re. the king of Jordan in Sioux Falls and Fargo, yeah that seems odd.

The Jordanian Air Force is heavy on F16s, and both places are F16 bases for US air national guards? The king is a pilot himself? Training thing?

I went to the Packers game last week. Not pretty.

The Brewers are in their 50th season.
One World Series. 7 game loss to St Louis in 82.
Now they are in the same division with St Louis.

Tom, it doesn't seem possible, but the PACKERS missed the playoffs the last 2 years.

henry

Rogers got woke, Packers went broke.

Thomas Collins

OK, it's Garlic Dill Cheese Curds versus Starbucks Gift Card. At first glance, it looks as if I have the better side of the bet. On closer inspection, however, GUS has the better play. It's more likely that Brewers will win WS this year than both Packers falling under .500 and Brewers falling short. Most, likely, it will be a push.

Parody account Miss M.

Jane

Ooops! Dumb me.

Clarice, fabulous Pieces, even if I disagree.

When I was in my third year of college at CU, my best friend was a Chinese girl from Hong Kong. She invited me to Hong Kong for the summer. I had a bank account, opened when I was born, with $800.00 in it. I asked my mother if I could use that money to go, and she agreed.

My friend's father owned the Hong Kong stock exchange, and her mother (in a very fun story) was the #1 trader in China. I was very excited. What an opportunity to learn so much!

That spring the Chinese came in and threatened to take Hong Kong over (it was under the control of the UK at the time) and my friend's family picked up and moved to Canada. End of trip. I'm still mad at the Chinese for that!

Robin

What year was that, Jane? My husband grew up in HK and I want to see what he remembers.

Gus, count your blessings that the Brewers got to 7 games in the only World Series they played in.

My team is the San Diego Padres--also an expansion franchise that's 50 years old or thereabouts.

The Padres went to the World Series twice--lost to the Detroit Tigers 4-1 in either 83 or 84; then got swept 4-0 by the Yankees in 97 or 98. Those things hurt so much that the dates are fuzzy in my mind.

Robin

Heart (Is that a good way to address you?),

I am an infrequent poster too, so often feel a little out of the loop despite reading almost every thread through. It's like real life in a way - there are the people you interact with daily, and therefore their absence is striking. Then there are those who you see occasionally and wonder what they're up to over a long absence.

My extended family is not very close, so the JOM folks are kind of stand-ins for the extended family I don't have. I mostly observe, appreciate, and, if I'm caught up (which isn't very often), chime in. But mostly, I enjoy the personalities and the differing points of view. Yours is a voice I enjoy, so I hope you'll be around more often.

That said, if anyone is still with me, my husband was telling me about a woman in, I think, Michigan who knows everything there is to know about bearings for old machines, primarily woodworking. And I wondered randomly if anyone here knows about her. She sounds like quite a character.

Robin

Thanks Jane! He was ten at the time. I'll ask him if he remembers anything.

Funny how the media wants nothing to do with Bill Clinton going to Pedo Island. Absolute silence.
The notion that Bill Clinton wouldn't be part of this perversion is laughable.

The Infamous Ignatz

--How do we cover America, that's become so divided by Donald Trump?--

That's a quote from Clarice's pieces from the NYT dolt.

Before Trump the left was calling us racist pigs and shoving homosexual marriage and every other perversion they could think of down our throats. It wasn't Trump who promised to fundamentally transform the US. It wasn't Trump who launched his career from a radical leftist terrorist's house, a left wing terrorist embraced by the educational establishment of this country. It wasn't Trump who put his financial interests before middle America's and transferred our industry and wealth overseas so they could cut their skim off the top. It wasn't Trump who called us deplorable and irredeemable or told us we're a bunch of dumb hicks clinging to our guns and religion like Linus's blanket.
Trump hasn't divided America. Trump is just the first Republican to point out the leftist sharks and their attendant, ruling class, globalist remora have already divided the nation. And he is also the first to point out they seek to unify us in the same way an amoeba seeks to unify with its next meal.
They're not mad he's dividing America. They're mad he's not another mealy-mouthed sycophantic GOPe creep pocketing his share of the cream while patronizing the people who elected them.

The Infamous Ignatz

The left is mad at Trump and the deplorables for exactly the same reason Xi and the PRC commies are mad at the people of HK.

GUS

Water is wet Rupert Gazette version

Local prosecutors in Manhattan labeled Jeffrey Epstein a low-level sex offender nearly a decade ago, against the recommendation of a state panel of experts and to the shock of a New York judge.

Documents obtained through a public-records request provide new insight into how Mr. Epstein wielded influence within the criminal-justice system, as his lawyers tried to prevent the financier from having to report to New York City police regularly or appear in a public sex-offender database.

Apparently these Antifa thugs and these young whippersnapper reporters are too young to remember the Chicago 69 democrat convention and the backlash from it.

My dad, a staunch union democrat, was fit to be tied, and although he wouldn't admit it, I think he voted for Wallace. I don't think my mom voted.

Might be explosive...Mueller lied

According to Mr. Mifsud’s attorneys their client was working for the CIA and was NOT a Russian operative as reported by the Mueller witch hunt team of liars.

Maria Bartiromo: We know that there were informants thrown at certain Trump campaign people, like George Papadopoulos. George Papadopoulos was on this show and he told me directly on this show that Mifsud was the guy they wanted him to meet in Italy… That is the individual who told him that Russia has emails on Hillary Clinton. Why is that important, John?

John Solomon: Well, I interviewed Mr. Mifsud’s lawyer the other day, Stefan Rowe, and he told me and also provided me some deposition evidence to both Congress and myself that his client was being directed and long worked with Western intelligence. And he was being directed specifically, he was asked to connect George Papadopoulos to Russia, meaning it was an operation, some form of intelligence operation. That was the lawyer’s own words for this. If that’s the case that means the flash point the started the whole investigation was in fact manufactured from the beginning.
