Buckeye

We had both Jr. and Buckeyette with us for the last five days.

Jr. had to catch a flight home today as he has a class to teach tomorrow. The rest of us drive home Sunday.

The most pleasant realization has been that they are finally adults.

I could tell when they took turns picking up the dinner tabs. Will wonders never cease:)

Melinda

Congrats, Buckeye!

There is a reason I am an advocate for Soros getting the 500 yard head shot treatment.

Way overdue in my book.

Buckeye,

My son calls to check on me. That is a pleasant development, and a sign he is a full-blown adult.

In formal impeachment proceedings, the president gets to defend himself, and both sides of the aisle have subpoena power. The Speaker is leading her caucus down a fake “impeachment” path because she knows they’ll lose on a level playing field.

LurkerSusie,

I’m amazed at how “smart” the corrupt democrats are. I bet Soros is a big part of the team. Wonder what he’s getting in return? Overthrow of democracy? And why don’t republicans sue to stop fake impeachment so they too can participate?

Paul Ryan is just as worthless steering Fox to the left as he was losing the House because of his worse than Boehner leadership and do nothing record. He represents everything wrong with the GOP.

Yes, the Mao look. My friend Jan asked if she was planning on wearing it to the (God forbid) Inaugural Ball.

Captain Hate,

Part of my hatred of Ryan is how I was duped. I honestly thought he was an earnest conservative, when he was nothing but a fraud. Same for Romney.

I will not be tricked that way again.

It never ends

Former Director of CIA's Counterterrorist Center joined Burisma's board, and he will help to expand the company's global presence.

Burisma Group, an independent oil and gas company with operations in Ukraine, announced that Joseph Cofer Black will join the company's board of directors. Joseph Cofer Black's past experience includes: Director of CIA's Counterterrorist Center between 1999 and 2002, and Ambassador at Large for Counter-Terrorism between 2002 and 2004. With such a strong background, Mr. Black will be leading the company's security and strategic development .

Yes all aooarently forgiven about blackwater, but the interesting question why they picked cofer because among other things he has served in sudan as station chief, thats when he nabbed carlos the jackal and tried a crack at bin laden

lurkersusie

Last line from Sean Davis article in the NY Post sums up
the latest scam accurately.

The Trump-Ukraine whistleblower complaint looks just like 'Steele Dossier 2 o.

Reporters, lawmakers and others who fell for the collusion hoax might blame naiveté. But that ­excuse won’t work this time around, not when the remix sounds exactly the same as the original song. Those who go along with this charade the second time around — be they in media, Congress or any of the intelligence and law-enforcement agencies implicated in the collusion hoax — have no such alibi.

I get the feeling that the WB report wasn't written by one person. There might have been one original reporter, but this seems to have been worked on by others.

GUS

Jim nj, this is a set up. The DEEP STATE person, who we KNOW is an/a CIA EMPLOYEE, is working in CONCERT, with the FULL COMMIE DEMOTARD PARTY. The deep state EMPLOYEE, who was allowed to work in a sensitive nature, SOLD OUT the NATIONS SECURITY, as a shill for his/her/Xe/Xim POLITICAL corrupt need.
It needs to be PUNISHED. Unlike SANDY BERGER, stealing documents from the national archives, and being given a PASS by W BUSH, there needs to be a SMACK DOWN.
The UNIPARTY is NOT up to the task.

Nothing about the LEAGUE and/or RULES is or was designed to make the NFL, more interesting, more honest, nor more fair. OK, I get the owners and the corporate CASH aspect. FUCKING STUPID AS HELL. Lets all get filthy rich, and in GOODELLS case, he has ZERO SKIN, in the game. But why FUCK THE FANS, and destroy the PRODUCT that made all of this WEALTH POSSIBLE.

How dominant are Chinese companies globally?

I don't know why they used that headline as the article doesn't answer the question, but it does show the growth in size of Chinese companies. That's kind of a suspect way to measure global dominance as the largest companies in China tend to be banks or state owned enterprises. Both categories would suffer greatly in a downturn.

At some point, the theater of the absurd, or rather the question of whether ONE of relative intelligence MIGHT, recognize the WILDLY OUT OF CONTROL and AJBECTLY horrid dishonest world of the LEFT, and dispassionate of DJT, the equation, that LYING TREASONOUS DEMOCRATS should WIN a game such as this, is somehow worthy of debate....IS ABSURD.

https://www.businessinsider.com/us-backs-proposed-65-billion-sale-of-32-f-35-lockheed-jets-to-poland-2019-9

This is good for both parties. Headline should read 6.5 billion. Poland gets the best aircraft available. Lockheed gets a big order.

We will be able to network with the new Polish fighters if we need to come to their aid.

That's the really big deal in all these sales of F-35s to allies, if needed, we can join with them and act as one combined air force sharing targeting info on the fly.

jim nj

Gus,

The media is still spinning this trying to get some traction. So you get a 3 minute segment on the 11 o'clock news that lacks any nuance.

If the whistle blower doesn't come forward this dies. And, if he does, he will have to name names or lose credibility.

Barbara

Just a thought, but the timing fits. The one person who would have been privy to that conversation, as well as have information on Rudi Giuliani's actions on behalf of the Attorney General's probe into certain matters involving the Ukraine is John Bolton.

jim nj

Barbara,

I doubt that, it's not John Bolton's style.

Barbara

The so-called Whistleblower complaint to Adam Schiff was dated August 12, 2019. Bolton was fired September 10, 2019. The President stated, “I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House." The excuse given was something to the effect that he, Bolton, didn't get along well with the rest of the President's team - specifically, Mike Pompeo and one or two others.

After the President's press conference in New York with Secretary of State Pompeo and Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, the President referred to this whistleblower complaint and commented something to the effect that "We know what happened. We know everything."

Barbara

Jim nj,

I wouldn't have thought it would be Bolton's style either. I’ve always liked the man, but he apparently clashed with the President on Venezuela. When he was terminated, the President didn't just let it go as a simple resignation. He emphasized that Bolton was fired. That's what initially caught my attention. Other than that, I can't figure out who else would have access to the areas of information covered in the brief to Schiff.

Barbara

Well, it's time to turn in. I hope this gets sorted out soon.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

You know, I think this IS sorted out but Dems and their media allies will keep up a hubbub of noise and confusion for quite some time.
Unless/until there's a price to be paid they'll keep it up.

jim nj

Barbara,

You may find the timing interesting, but John Bolton just doesn't fight his battles that way.

He's not a back-stabber, he's an in your face arguer. If he thinks he's right he won't back down. And he's a force of nature in that regard, but he has an integrity that wouldn't allow that.

Yeah, he's really good in a knife fight, but, as I said, he doesn't back stab.

jim nj

Jim Sunny,

Agreed. It has been sorted out. The MSM will try to keep it alive while Congress goes into recess, but it won't help.

I think the flaw in this is Adam Schiff. I believe he had this report early on. Got his staffers to work on it to beef it up and then leaked it before the hearing.

His opening statement wherein he egregiously misquoted Trump and now calls it a "parody" sinks the whole effort.

You're either meticulous and serious, or you go the buffoon route. Schiff took the buffoon route.

Pelsosi, apparently taking the buffoons lead, has beclowned herself.

jim nj

I expect there are some Democrats who signed on to impeachment who now regret their move. They were told that something was coming that they had to back or be lost. They're lost.

jim nj

Primaries will be a wondrous thing next year. The general election will be even better.

https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/09/26/ftc-match-com-used-fake-accounts-to-lure-500000-subscribers/

Odd story.

"The lawsuit claims that Match.com will let non-premium users know that they have an incoming message from an account and then encourage them to subscribe in order to see the message, knowing that many messages are from scammers or other fake accounts."

jim nj

Never saw this before. Got an incoming call on my cellphone. Looked at the identifier and it said, "unknown caller, scam likely."

Wow, thank you. They left a message in a language I couldn't understand.

I don't take calls from numbers I don't recognize. They can leave me a message that might induce me to call back, but that doesn't happen often.

I've been doing the same thing with e-mails for 20 years. If I don't recognize the sender, I just delete it with opening it.

https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2019/09/26/repo-madness-day-8-ny-fed-pumps-110-billion-of-cash-into-market/

Again. Still. WTF?

8 days in a row?

For all its complexities, this is really a very simple market. A repo provides overnight liquidity. You trade good bond collateral for very short-term money.

There is either too little cash to be invested overnight or too much demand for liquidity.

Quick, dirty analysis - the FED fucked up, big time. And still hasn't found a way to fix the problem.

Every once in a while you get a structural change in a market. Is that happening here? I don't know.

I'm baffled. Any thoughts on the repo market?

James D.

Why am I worried about impeachment, and not at all convinced that the President is winning in any sense right now?

https://pjmedia.com/trending/former-romney-advisor-claims-30-gop-senators-would-vote-for-impeachment-in-secret/

I absolutely believe that this is true, despite the lack of names attached to the story. I don't know about 30 GOP Senators, but I count 15 who I wouldn't be surprised if they voted to remove the President, and if that happened, plus all the Dems, they'd only need to get four more.

Introduced by a bipartisan group of senators last week, the bill states that foreign companies will face delisting from U.S. exchanges unless they grant American inspectors full access to their audit reports -- something Beijing has blocked in the case of Chinese companies. Enforcement would follow a three-year grace period beginning in 2025.
