The Dems were pushing nonsense long before this particular instance of academic tomfoolery. Remember Pelosi and "welfare creates jobs" excuse for raising taxes?

Schweizer was on Fox and Friends this morning and announced this.

You mean like the consumer price index not including food or energy costs? If they want to limit the amount of federal payouts or make them less volatile, then come up with something different to base them on. But don't lie about the cost of living being not based on two items that everyone uses.

Joe Biden now has a tax the wealthy plan to rival that of Warren and Sanders.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Iggy - You read encyclopedias?--

My parents had a nice set of Funk and Wagnalls which were a fortunate step down from the Britannica for a ~ten year old.
My wife had a set of Britannicas from the first half of the 20th century that were tough to get through if it was any technical subject. They did not write to a high school level in those.
Used to read the dictionary too, just to find unusual words. Anthropophagyte might be my favorite or at least most memorable. Callypygian and spathic are up there too. :)

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Should be Callipygian?

clarice

spathic is a new one for me.

The Infamous Ignatz

So did Hunter Biden break a law? He was the fortunate beneficiary of an indirect bribe. They gave him a job and paid him for doing nothing for access to the WH and his pop. Who wouldn't take that? He exercised no undue influence on prosecutors did he?
The actual parties to the bribe were Joe/Barry and Burisma. He might have to disgorge that income were it found to be a bribe but not sure what his criminal liability is.
And I'll bet there is a huge cache of docs and evidence that the pressure from other countries on removing this prosecutor was mainly from the US and other corrupt cronies at risk, not because he was corrupt.

That's the most infuriating aspect of these people; they get their corrupt, handpicked LE puppets to declare them innocent and then talk about how squeaky clean they are.

clarice

Iggy, maybe we can invent a new word for that.

Captain Hate

If Momto2 reads this I also liked the illustrations of oceans showing a cross section of the surface with whales leaping down to the floor with nautiluses (nautli?) dorking around

The Infamous Ignatz

Yeah, I knew I spelled it wrong, but it's a comment on a blog so figured who cares? Jim. Jim cars. :)
Spathic is related to callipygian; a geologic term MM probably knows. It means having good cleavage. :)

Narciso79

So its related to fibonacci then

Two geologic terms that aren't often seen:

Both are derived from Hawaiian and refer to types of lava.

James D.

So did Hunter Biden break a law?

Given the tens of thousands of pages of federal criminal laws ( and refs with criminal liability attached) I’d say it’s virtually certain he has.

I’d also say it’s absolutely certain that if one of Trump’s or Pence’s kids was getting $50K a month from a sketchy Ukrainian company in return for nothing, they’d be under indictment right now.

They gave him a job and paid him for doing nothing for access to the WH and his pop. Who wouldn't take that?

An honorable human being. I doubt you’d take it. I like to think I wouldn’t.

He exercised no undue influence on prosecutors did he?

We don’t know that. We do know that given Hunter’s track record of using Daddy’s influence to get what he wants, and behaving stupidly and irresponsibly at every turn, that he’s totally the sort of guy who’d reflexively say “Do you know who I am?” whenever called on his scummy or criminal behavior and then beg Daddy to hire a good lawyer for him.

My husband also read encyclopedias as a child.
We have his original set in our home.
Momto2:
I especially enjoyed the medical section.
We have the dictionaries as well.
Henry and JamesD:
That article you cited really struck me today as I read it.
If Horowitz downplays this corruption our only hope is Durham.
I also want Hillary to suffer more.
However , every day she wakes up and realizes it is her own fault she isn’t President is a day of joy for me.
She has received her just desserts from the people she deemed deplorable.
Poetic justice or hoisted on her own petard.
You make the call.

MissMarple2

Rep. Mac Thornberry, Republican of Texas, has announced he will not seek re-election. I think that makes 6 GOP reps from Texas.

D

JamesD:
They are going to get Hunter.
It is why Biden is begging the networks to silence Giuliani.
It isn’t going to work.
By helping his son illegally , Biden has once again put a stake in the heart of his Presidential campaign.
He missed his chance.
He should have run in 2016.
But Hillary would not be denied her turn.

D

We need strong Republican candidates from Texas.
I suggest the Governor and AG run for office.
I would also like Porch to consider a run.

Captain Hate

Ahhh Paste Eater, we hardly knew ye

Legal Insurrection has a great story on how Biden's campaign is trying to get Giuliani banned from all network appearances, because He Says Mean things. Meanwhile, Biden is refusing all interviews, and is just putting out statements that "these stories have all been debunked."

That's an incredibly weak move on Biden's part. "Mommy! Make them stop talking about me!!!" No matter what else happens, Biden's campaign is toast.

It'd be nice of McTurtle was a little bit more supportive of the President, and a little more dismissive of Nancy and her lunatics and the House. Something like:

"If Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats continue on their path and produce a ridiculous impeachment resolution based on lies and fabrications, the Constitution requires that we take it up in the Senate, and I promise that I will give it precisely the respect it deserves when we do so, which is none at all."

Whoever is running Fox News has no business sense. It reminds me of the people like Susan Branch and the Ravelry owners who had no reason to attack the President but couldn't help themselves resulting in huge losses. Maybe the NFL would be a better analogy size-wise.

OT

Right before we left for the beach, Poogan (my dog) lost a rear toenail. We have been treating it with Epsom Salt soaks and neosporin. On Thursday, he started limping, so I called the Vet, and he sent a script for an antibiotic which I got filled in S. Carolina. He responded well, but the Vet still wanted to see him.

Took him in today and the Vet thinks it is likely a squamous cell carcinoma of the toe. We are going to keep him on the antibiotics for another week to see if swelling recedes. If not, toe has to come off. That possibility will likely keep me tied up, as he will need help getting outside to do his bidness, and he is too big for my 105 pound wife to manage.

Hope it is just an infection.

MissMarple2

Oh, me too, Buckeye!

Captain Hate

Best wishes to Poogan!

Momto2

Prayers for Poogan, Buckeye! How old is he?

"I wonder who the clowns running FNC think their audience is at this point?"

On a more common man view of Hunter Gatherer Biden....
What would the MF'ingM be saying if the son of a prominent Republican, was
Banging his late Brothers' widow?
Flying to China with his VERY CONNECTED and powerful father, and returning with a $1.5 Billion dollar deal from the CHINESE, for his own business.
The son was getting paid THREE MILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLION Dollars by a gas and oil business in UKRAINE, despite having zero experience in the industry. Atnd his POWERFUL FATHER, had bragged ON CAMERA about with holding AmericanTax money, until an investigation into his sons GRAFT-FATHER was quashed.
And what if this POWERFUL Republican's failure and sleazebag of a son, was an admitted Cocaine abuser and renter-gatherer of HOOKERS???
AND!! What if this LOSER of a son (a BIDEN) has been SHITCANNED by the NAVY for drug abuse/cocaine? He had age requirements waived to
get a commission at the age of 42, and he lasted ONE YEAR before failing a drug test for COCAINE.

What would the MFM be saying about him AND HIS FATHER, if he was a CONSERVATIVE??

Buckeye

Momto2

Poogan is a 10 year old Labradoodle, and otherwise very healthy and active.

Had a similar situation with my dog Gus. I took him to my vet and she sent me to a specialist who said exactly the same thing that your vet said. A week of antibiotics and he was right as rain. Hope the same for Poogan.

Starting to look like a set up? STARTING??

"Pelosi is OK if pursuing impeachment means Democrats lose the House next year. "

According to the executive, James Biden made it clear that he viewed the fund as a way to take money from rich foreigners who could not legally give money to his older brother or his campaign account. “We’ve got investors lined up in a line of 747s filled with cash ready to invest in this company,” the executive remembers James Biden saying.

As dog owner (3X), I am praying for Poogan. My little girl Beagle, Lady, gets allergies that spread to her paws. Constant attention. I sometime think Vets are a bigger cash cow than a regular physician:)

Captain Hate

Biden should have gelded his drug addict son after he was banging his dead son's widow. What type of lowlife father considers that acceptable behavior? And where are the GOP mouthpieces to point this out? Can't Rove fit it on his high tech whiteboard or has he given up on Delaware after he couldn't get the great Mike Castle past COD whom he subsequently torpedoed.

For Catsmeat and any other bibliophile:

In a little brown shingled cottage on one of the foothills of Mount Varcrobis, there lived with her father and mother, Mr and Mrs Eigleen, a little girl named Eepersip. She was rather lonely.” So begins The House Without Windows by the American child prodigy Barbara Newhall Follett. First published in 1927, when Follett was just 12 years old (and republished by Penguin this month) it’s a dreamlike adventure in which Eepersip leaves home to wander through the wild meadows and mountains, eventually becoming “invisible to all mortals, save those few who have minds to believe, eyes to see.”

In December 1939, at the age of 25, Follett herself vanished. After a row with her husband, Nick, she left...

This is why everyone should swear off using the Wikitards

Oooh, looks like Jake Tapper or one of the many DNC minions have edited the wikipedia page for Hunter Biden to try to downplay his corruption.

Here's the new edit to his page:

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

"There is no evidence that Hunter Biden was ever under investigation by the government of Ukraine, or that Vice President Biden sought the removal of Shokin to protect Hunter Biden or Burisma Holdings.[1][2][3][33][34][35][36] In July 2019, Trump ordered the freezing of $391 million in military aid[37] shortly before a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump asked Zelensky to initiate an investigation of the Bidens.[38][39] Trump falsely told Zelensky that "[Joe] Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution" of his son; Joe Biden did not stop any prosecution, did not brag about doing so, and there is no evidence his son was ever under investigation.[40] "

All of that are 100% Biden campaign and Fusion GPS talking points.

The footnotes, of course, all link to left-meaning Democrat-shill media outlets.
