THE WEEK IN PICTURES: PIERRE DELECTO EDITION

The closing of the conservative mind: Politics and the art of war

Rather than being the creation of a fanatical Eurosceptic minority, Tory populism is a sign that the Conservative Party is reinventing itself again just as Britain becomes ungovernable.

A little long, but interesting.

He raises a very interesting question about the wish of many for a 2nd Brexit referendum. Who has the mandate, the authority, the righteousness to word such a question fairly now?

Given the current condition of politics in the UK I fail to understand how the question could even be formed without some party objecting to, at least, some part of the wording.

Jim, I’ll bash Big Pharma in two ways.

One, their agreement to play the price-fixing games with the Europeans that results in inflated prices paid by American patients.

Two, the patent games that keep prices artificially high, beyond the protected period of the initial patent. I have some understanding of the costs and risks involved in research, and don’t (yet) have a big problem with permitting some period of exclusivity. But Big Pharma is sorely testing my patience on that.

AB, the pharmas don’t make the rules. It’s the idiot politicians and FDA bureaucrats. It’s hard to expect the companies to be altruistic

Sundays, Sunday nights, Monday nights, even Thursday nights and Saturdays once the college season is over. If Goodell and his staff of nitbrains were more concerned with developing a set of rules that could be reasonably enforced and finding good refs, the game would be much better than the abomination I boycott.

I generally don't like slide-show articles, but this is interesting.

My father's aunt had a Sears built house erected in Closter, NJ. The property was adjacent to the railroad, so the pre-cut kit was shipped by rail and unloaded onto their property.

“General Michael Flynn’s attorney is demanding that charges be immediately dropped after they found that FBI Agents manipulated records against him. They say that James Clapper told a reporter to “take a kill shot at Flynn. This has been a complete setup of Michael Flynn....

Captain Hate

Speaking of slaps on the wrist, I think Emmitt Sullivan is in the put up or shut up situation in the Flynn case. I shared daddy's outrage that not more was done to the DOJ miscreants in the Ted Stevens case when the full extent of what those traitors did was revealed. I'm not going to name names but I think a few people went easy on Sullivan because he's black and was appointed by Reagan, to which I emphatically say fuck that shit. Until proven otherwise that prick is just as gutless as John Roberts.

It was first reported in The NY Times article and now getting repeated by MAGA pundits that Durham is investigating whether the CIA “tricked” the FBI into starting the Russian investigation. What isn’t clear to me is whether that refers to allegations Trump colluded with the Russians and Steele dossier stuff OR if it refers to the CIA tricking the FBI into believing the Russians hacked the DNC server, which would mean it wasn’t the Russians who hacked the DNC but someone who made it look like the Russians.

I think in terms of destroying the Deep State proving the latter would be more beneficial.
