I agree:

Former NSA Chief Of Staff Suggests Whistleblower Had Help From Congressional Democrats In Crafting Complaint

Jane

And the beat goes on: I suppose, that isn’t entirely fair. Hunter once ran a hedge fund with his dad’s brother, James Biden, and associated with a notorious Ponzi schemer. James would go on to snag a job as executive vice president of a construction company in 2010, despite having virtually no experience in the field. And only a few months into his tenure, the company would win one of its biggest contracts in its history, a $1.5 billion deal to build affordable homes in Iraq.

By pure happenstance, Joe was also the Obama administration’s point man in Iraq at the time. Funny how these things work out.

Clearly, it is indicative of no knowledge, louise mench could have written it.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

"Maguire is free to have his opinion"

Of course!
I think we should ponder and try to learn from the fact that a decent and smart guy doesn't agree with the majority opinion here
So far, I've eliminated the possibility that Never- and Rarely/BarelyTrumpers are right and we're wrong LOL. But I'm certain there's more insights to be gained than that.

Narciso79

Add to that peter galbraith bidens sherpa on iraq and his oil concession from the kurds, which we still threw under the bus. After they basically beat islamic state.

Narciso79

Really interesting:

That would sync with Toobin testifying that the DOJ is corrupt.

I bet HIS definition of corrupt DOJ people isn't the same as ours.

If Ace 'did a 180' is MissM allowed back?

Probably, I think it's her choice not to.

MissMarple2

Melinda,

They think WE are stupid, else we would agree with them.

They are also used to having all of their duplicitous deeds swept under the carpet and they still haven't grasped that not only are the records not being hidden, but there are a host of extremely loyal Trump supporters who will dig them up.

Narciso79

Remember burisma is tied to atlantic council as well as crowdstrike, the form according to mcintyre was backdated.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I will go give it a try.

Yes, I am! Thanks for giving me the idea, Captain!

I will refrain from telling them all that I was RIGHT about Trump. LOL!

James D.

I think we should ponder and try to learn from the fact that a decent and smart guy doesn't agree with the majority opinion here

I do not understand how any decent, intelligent human being can be even remotely on the side of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff and the management of MSNBC and The NY Times editorial board.

Even if you think Trump is a vulgar, dishonest asshole, how is the other side not a thousand times worse, and how can any thinking person not see that?

And even if you do, how can you also argue with historically low unemployment, historically low black and Hispanic unemployment, historically high stock market, new factories, new trade agreements with multiple countries, conservative justices on the SC and lower courts, and no new wars or even major military deployments?

I’d love an explanation.

Narciso79

I told you the twist that onychenko found out out about petro, it probably helped seal his fate.

MissMarple2

James D.,

I have a daughter, a sister, and one of my best friends from high school who all vote democrat.

They are all honest, hard-working, decent people. The problem is their news sources and the fact that they really aren't on the internet much, and when they are it is on recipe sites, shopping, etc.

It also has to do with who their friends are.

This is my theory, anyway.

Narciso79

Tapes between he and the oligarch, but you have to read the local paper kyev post, unian to know this.

If another Flight 93 crashed into the Capitol this morning, I would cheer, and I don't really care how that makes me sound.

I made a similar comment to amom the other day... except I was wishing 93 was the first plane and not the 3rd.

I'm not entirely clear what TM's view on any of this actually is, but whatever it is, he's at least as entitled to his opinion as anyone else here.
I only object when people feel entitled to their own facts.

MM @ 11:43

I get that. But our host DOES have plenty of alternative news sources. And he’s well aware of the inaccuracy, carelessness and outright dishonesty of the MSM - he points it out himself often enough!

Buckeye

Yesterday we had lunch at Husk. This is a one of 4 across the Southeast that Sean Brock launched to focus on the cuisine of the area.

He is no longer involved and is opening something new in Nashville that will focus on Appalachian cuisine.

Too bad my grandma Ginky isn't still alive. She could teach him everything he needs to know:)

Lunch was excellent, but the country fried steak was sitting on top of a bed of roasted veggies in a teriyaki based sauce.

Sorry , but teriyaki ain't low country, no way, no how:)

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Lunch was excellent, but the country fried steak was sitting on top of a bed of roasted veggies in a teriyaki based sauce.

Heresy! If it ain't covered in white biscuit gravy, it ain't country!!!!

MissMarple2

Buckeye,

In my neck of the woods, country fried steak is accompanied by milk gravy and mashed potatoes.

On a bed of roasted veggies with teriyaki sauce? HORROR!

Buckeye

My point exactly Steph, but it was tasty:)

Buckeye

See, even us flatlanders know better:)

MissMarple2

Exactly, Stephanie!!

I can remember pounding that steak with a meat tenderizer and breading it for my mom when I was in the 5th grade. When I got older she put me in charge of learning how to make the gravy.

Roasted veggies with teriyaki sauce. Gadzooks!

Melinda

Vegetables?

What is this “vegetables” you speak of accompanying delicious chicken fried steak?

henry

teriyaki steak sticks from the truck on the beach. yum. (Mom grew up in Hawaii).

Narciso79

One of the few times i agree with scary larry.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Fusion. Asian Country. Ick! Coulda known it was weirdo cooking just from the name - Husk. Seriously? Proper country comes from a place named Dillard House or Mary Mac's or Lucille's.

Chicken fried steak goes with mashed taters and green beans or greens with the gravy all over the taters, too.

mike in houston

There is a little place north of Conroe, TX that makes a chicken fried steak that probably could feed four. Veggies include mashed potatoes and my favorite, fried okra. White gravy is the only thing that can be used!

Dave (in MA)

When I was in school, some weeks on consecutive days we'd get "veal parmesan", "country steak" and "salisbury steak" for lunch in the cafeteria and it didn't take a genius to figure out it was the same stuff dressed up 3 different ways.

boris

Well, James D .... when a deplorable president is Republican the level of social hostility and discord is much higher than when a despicable president is Democrat.

Maybe less hostility and discord seems better than more hostility and discord for some people. They can deliver their sincere reasonable criticism of the ruling class in relative peace and quiet.

henry

Anybody know how much is invested over there? (aside from forced minority stakes in subsidiaries to ensure prompt IP transfer, unless such investments are included here).

The White House is weighing a block on all U.S. investments in China, a source familiar told CNBC. The discussion is in its preliminary stages.

The goal of such a block would be to protect American investors, the source said, adding no decisions have been made and it’s nowhere near complete.

Captain Hate

You're welcome, Miss Marple. I erroneously thought it was your decision to stay away. Btw, Gus was banned there too.

Jim Eagle

buckeye,

We’re you in Charleston? Love Husk.

James D.

We had more of a progression in the dining hall at Crewe.

Day 1 - roasted chicken
Day 2 - chicken cutlets in some sort of sauce
Day 3 - chicken and dumplings
Day 4 - chicken soup

Look at it this way ... someone might be willing to endure the higher level of social hostility and discord for a "good" president but not for a "deplorable" president.

Husk is the name of a parasitic disease in cows, pigs etc.
The name does not inspire my salivary glands.

Unless wrapped around a tamale?

GUS

I need to apologize for criticizing our host.
Jack Dorsey needs an apology from me too. He hosts me also. Patterico, now there's a guy I REALLY REALLY need to apologize to.

Miss Marple, I met Capn at AOS many many years ago.
I got banned there for criticizing the "host".

Sorry Mr Maguire.

MissMarple2

Ignatz,

Around here a husk is the outer leaves of corn, when dried often used to wrap tamales.

I never heard of the parasitic disease.

The White House is weighing a block on all U.S. investments in China, a source familiar told CNBC.

I can just picture the chaos of every U.S. fund manager getting the word that they need to divest everything China pronto - unfortunately, American investors wouldn't escape the wreckage.

MissMarple2

GUS,

That's what I got banned for, too. I didn't know you had gotten banned, until Captain Hate just now told me.

You are free to criticize whoever you want, including me. I was just explaining why I don't, cause calling me a coward was a little hurtful to me.

Buckeye

JiB

We are at the beach. Seabrook Island.

Been in Charleston couple times this trip for dinners and lunch.

Yesterday we had to make a return visit to the French Huguenot church so Mrs. Buckeye could take pictures of the plaques on the wall honoring some of her ancestors who were founders or financial contributors.

Elias Boudinot
Mareen Duvall
Jacques Geurard, Sieur de Boscheon du Bourg
David des Merest

All but Boudinot were early, French born who came in the 1600s.

We have an invitation to the "collation" after Sunday's service. I suspect the wines will be spectacular. Too bad we will be on the road to Ahia.

Next time:)

MissMarple2

I wonder how much of banning US investment in China is really about keeping China from bribing people through imaginary returns and such.

I am still wanting to see those Bain Capital books and where he made his money.

What a coincidence, I was reading some climate news,blogs and statistics today. I really can't stand Steve McIntyre, he doesn't care about the planet. All of the other "CLIMATE SCIENTISTS" love the planet far more than Steve McIntyre does. We have 11 years and 3 months left. THEN WE'RE ALL DEAD. Poor Ocasio-Corrtezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz might never get to see her grandchildren.

Hank "Guam" Johnson. He's actually in charge of a Congressional subcommittee.

Think about that folks.

Narciso79

I know gus, mcintyre makes polar bears cry.

Rush is mistaken the weapons were never withheld or shevchuk wouldmt have been boasting about them in early august. I know he wasnt supposed to admit that.

How dumb is Hank Johnson? He actually thought he could play the "Chair sets the rules card" against a hound-dog like Jim Jordan. All of that blatter and Jim still got to skewer that Toobin snake.

Narciso79

Well billy madison dumb, appalled doesnt seem to mind.

Melinda

Good bye, Joe Wilson.

Mel-

Brookings was started with rockefeller money per their centennial foundation color commemorative report and was created to be the exemplar for all future think tanks.

It works closely with unesco on something called the center for universal education.

Narciso79

The punchline was they wanted the documents to counter the pentagon papers, and they were stored at brookings.

MissMarple2

Jack,

Glad you saw that video with Johnson, Jordan and Toobin.

Jordan did great, even with Johnson trying to play the "Chairman," (and doing so badly). He is one of my favorites.

Totally unafraid and takes no prisoners!

This is disgusting. The left is now going after Karen Pence in order to stir up trouble between Pence and Trump.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/leave-me-alone-karen-pence-refused-to-kiss-husband-on-election-night

Karen Pence has been a trooper, going to all sorts of places and doing all types of volunteer work. To bring up the Access Hollywood tape, and pretend that they knew whether or not she kissed Pence IN THEIR PRIVATE SUITE, is just disgusting.

This also is an effort to shave of evangelical votes, even though Trump has done more than ANY GOP president for causes that group supports, like going after Planned Parenthood and abortion, supporting religious freedom, prison reform, etc.

This is just awful. She is a nice woman who has never hurt anyone.
