Today was a GREAT day.

Between House Democrats being totally OWNED by @CLewandowski_
and Hollywood celebrities FREAKING OUT that Trump raised $15M in “their” state...

Nothing makes me happier than pushing a few Democrats off the ledge.
=================================
Did you catch that? President Trump raised $15 million in California!

Well, I got my new computer and couldn’t find the password on the router. So a Comcast guy was next door and I showed him the pix, and he said my router “d-link” sucked and if it didn’t come up on line, I had to call them.

So I called them and they said it was out of warranty and for $39.99 they would hook me up. (Still no password).

So I hung up and went to Walmart and got a router with modem for $134.o0 and am afraid to try and hook it up because i’ll Screw it up.

I should just return the Mac. What a joke.

Read this entire story. It is the biggest bunch of gossipy drama these two reporters could concoct. THEN, when you get all the way to the end of the story, there is this statement from the adviser, Susie Wiles:

“Due to a nagging health issue, it’s time for me to focus on taking care of myself, so out of fairness to the firm and its clients, I have decided to separate from Ballard Partners,” Wiles said in a statement to Florida Politics. “Though I strongly support the president’s re-election, I will also not be active with the Trump campaign in an official position.”

She has health issues!!

This week, leading Democrats have taken to smearing a sitting Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States with discredited allegations. The calls by Democrat candidates for president to remove Justice Brett Kavanaugh from the Court are a disgrace…

and nothing short of an attack on our independent judiciary. Justice Brett Kavanaugh is a good and decent man, he is a principled jurist and a credit to the Highest Court in the land & these attacks on Justice Kavanaugh must stop! #ProtectKavanaugh

His post:

“*Editorial Post* - I’m hearing a lot of chatter that the Gulf states were all *VERY* shaken by Iran’s strike on Saudi Arabia. This was a wake up call. For years the Gulf states have been worried about Iran invading their countries. This attack against Saudi Arabia has convinced the Gulf States, particularly Kuwait & Saudi Arabia that they cannot wait any longer to deal w/ Iran.

I’m told the Saudis are going to strike Iran. The timing, scope & other details unknown but there is going to be a kinetic military response, Saudi will lead it, but other major players will be involved.

It looks like the writing is on the wall; Iran went too far & its going to pay a severe price.

Stay tuned here for breaking news of further developments.”

Good evening, One and All,

the surgeon's office called today to check and see if we would be willing to report on Wednesday morning at 530a for the valve replacement surgery.

that's one day early! Mrs. Kid and i talked it over and agreed to go. so.... this is it! everything's ready to go. i went through last minute testing (blood panel and pulmonary function test) and have been cleared on all fronts. took a tour of the ICU and made friends with the lead professional of that unit.

reviewed the actual order to perform a side port access mitral valve replacement procedure. that put it in black and white. not a simple procedure to qualify for we found out. all of this hard work, dedication, and learning have paid off....instead of 3 months healing and rehab we are looking at less than 8 weeks. the more we hear from the insiders (like the ICU pro) the more jacked up we get!

i haven't been this revved up since walking through the tunnel at Kezar Stadium in SFO to play the first road game of my last season of h.s. football in 1972. very jacked up but tranquilo at the same time. i know what needs to be done. it's all led up to this "one clear moment."

Mrs. Kid is all ready to go. Anya has been trucked cross town to stay at her auntie's house with fellow hooligan pups Finn, Sandy, and Betty Long Back through the weekend.

i'll send word via GUS by text with prelim details from our surgeon, Dr. Khan late tomorrow afternoon when it's all said and done. i should be phone ready this weekend.

see y'all on the flip side. thanks for all of the positive energy, prayers, good wishes and support. this is happening.

The comical thing in Dave's 9:27 link is to read the embittered, embattled, embeciles of the #metoo movement.
These dumbass progs swallowed hook, line and sinker Marcuse and the New Left's utter sexual libertinism and general offense at any restraint of human behavior and then they're shocked that their fellow progs act liking rutting swine.
These unsquarable circles of leftist "thought" will only multiply as they continue to reap the whirlwind of defying God while indulging the beasts of the field in man.

Arizona Democratic Party will hold vote to censure Sinema. “The Arizona Democratic Party is planning to hold a vote this week to determine whether Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) should be censured. The Arizona Republic reports the censure vote is due to the fact that progressives in the state Democratic Party see her as too accommodating to President Trump and his policies.”

During the election she was pitched as a moderate aisle-crosser. Nobody meant for her to actually be one.

Narciso79

No just the evening,

jim nj

That NPR article was odd with the added update. Totally changes the tone. 1st part was typical hand-wringing that we need to talk, but Rouhani has ruled that out. So the hand-wringing part by the usual suspects was useless.

That we may have intelligence that shows the missiles moved into position in Iran is big.

We should take our time. Build as strong a case as we can with multiple intelligence sources. Our own and anybody else who wants to contribute.

The above article suggests we are taking our time in responding. The Saudis should have a large say in this. As should its neighbors.

They are the ones that will receive any reprisal attacks if/when we do take action with the Saudis leading.

Iran is target-rich in terms of what I think we already know. The refineries are fixed targets. I'm sure we know exactly how to attack them already. Known missile sites are obvious targets for taking hits to prevent their use in a counter-attack. What else, or what different to target is beyond me, other than de-capitation strike, but I don't think we are at point yet. Maybe better to hit them before they disperse, though.

I certainly wouldn't want a one-off attack plan. I would want a multi-day plan that could be scaled back.

And we should take the Iranian people into account. Weaken the government without angering the normals.

Narciso79

This is just theit naval complement:

jim nj

Narciso,

Here's the types and numbers of the Iranian Naval vessels.

https://military.wikia.org/wiki/List_of_current_ships_of_the_Islamic_Republic_of_Iran_Navy

Narciso79

Well there is that, one would have to commit to a rather extensive declawing effort up and down the gulf

jim nj

In any event, the Iranian Navy wouldn't last long if it was a target. We wouldn't send ships after them. Missiles mostly. and all at once if it came down to that. Wouldn't even need to be large missiles since these are mostly smallish ships. Just need to damage them, no real need to sink them.

Narciso79

Well the first wave, but how to make sure that from bahrain to omam are not hit, amd targwta inland including king khalid airbase.

jim nj

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-saudi-aramco-security/costly-saudi-defenses-prove-no-match-for-drones-cruise-missiles-idUSKBN1W22FR

Interesting as it mentions that there were Patriot anti-missile batteries at the Aramco facility.

Read somewhere else that the attacks were expected to come from the Houthis and were oriented in that direction.

From combined sources the Patriot batteries have countered 230 ballistic missiles and are not designed to counter drones and cruise missiles which fly lower to the ground.

So it appears the success of the attack was due to low-flying weapons and the direction they came from.

jim nj

Narciso,

That is a real concern and that's why planning will have to consider these bases in an Iranian counter-attack. I thought I mentioned that earlier, if not, I was remiss.

Puzzling it out, I think the Patriot batteries would take out the ballistic missiles, unless they were hit by an overwhelming number of missiles.

Anti-ship missiles and cruise missiles with their flatter trajectories could be a problem.

Assuming just airstrikes, that's something for the targeteers to work on.

If there really is a GCC commando force they could be added into the mix for some operations against missiles.

For political reasons would Iran refrain from an attack on the US airbase in Qatar?

I think they looked at a lot of these issues after the downing of the US drone.

Already filed in the "lessons learned" file.

Show some forbearance and you are "weak." I don't expect that to happen again.

If there is to be an attack on Iran, I would use it to reduce their "counter-options" at the same time.

Anon,

Digital, as in either it is or it isn't, it's light out, or it isn't.

And I'm absolutely gobsmacked. I'm thinking PAD or spinal stenosis. Then the thought occurred to me that maybe it's mechanical and I need more lift on my shorter right leg.

I pull my sneakers off and the the right heel 1/8 inch lift pad is MISSING. I have no idea how, or how long it's been missing.

I had a new spare pad and inserted it. It's too soon to tell if that's the problem.

But it's mind-boggling. How did the lift disappear? When? Why didn't I notice that?

I'll have to walk around tomorrow to see if it makes a difference, but it could account for why the kink in my back got worse.

Again. I'm baffled, but it does give one the idea about how much I've been thinking about this.

And how hard it is to diagnose things. This may be it, maybe not.
