Details about Hunter Biden's murky finances from windfall deals in Ukraine and China related to his father Vice President Joe Biden could soon be revealed in paternity suit against him if court requires him to file "affidavit of financial means" in support of love child

In #TwoWeeks, no doubt.

Ohio Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan drops out of the 2020 presidential race

matt - deplore me if you must

The Chinese send their kids here for the chance to obtain visas and residency as well as gain coveted American degrees. Hongcouver to a lesser extent. We have it here in the San Gabriel Valley and Irvine.

To an extent they are still locked into the mandarin syndrome where, unless you pass the test/have the right piece of paper, your career stalls.

It will be very interesting going forward to see if Emperor Xi re-introduces political litmus tests that cast foreign educated Chinese as capitalist roaders and revanchists.

From Dersh

All civil libertarians should be concerned about an Alice in Wonderland process in which the search for an impeachable crime precedes the evidence that such a crime has actually been committed.

Don't hold your breath waiting for the libertardians to say one fucking thing about anything not involving pot.

Captain Hate,

No one except for a few grifters is interested in going back to the old way of doing things. Even those GOP guys who went into Schiff's hide-out yesterday were markedly stiffer in the spines and I will bet are even more proud of themselves after getting thanked and praised by the President this morning.

People LIKE being brave. People LIKE the rallies, tweets, and chopper pressers. They LIKE the campaign swiping Biden's Latino web site. They LIKE the humor, the glamor, and the surprises.

So anyone who thinks the GOP is going back to a Romney type candidate is truly as delusional as the Ace commenter says.

I think as a general rule, children of politicians who themselves go into politics or the media are worthless at best and more likely loathsome beyond all reckoning.

Correction: Oliver's plea was from 2013, and it went thusly:

"Do it. Look at me. Do it. I will personally write you a campaign check now on behalf of this country, which does not want you to be president, but which badly wants you to run."

That's exactly right. People go to rallies to meet like-minded folks probably more than to see the president. It is what preference cascades look like.

That John Kass piece is exactly right about living in a one party state. I have some small hope at our local township level this year, but we'll see.

Just heard on CNN that the "impeachment inquiry" needs to be in Schiff's SCIF, bc what's being discussed includes CLASSIFIED info. That would have made some sense if not for the VERY specific instructions given out by Schiff every depo that NOTHING classified can be discussed.

The only reason Adam Schiff is conducting these unclassified interviews in a SCIF is to allow Democrats to control the narrative getting to the press.

30 findings from the NTSB. I have not gone into detail yet but it seems they are pointing the big finger at FIGG.

But of course it is Mayor Bane territory.

MissMarple2

I just got done listening to Dan Bongino's podcast for today. Towards the end, he took a little bit of time to explain his position on Syria and why he feels the way he does.

He agrees with the President and thinks he made the right decision. His uncle was killed in Viet Nam before he was born. All of her life his grandmother was a broken woman. He listened to President Trump talk about greeting the flag-covered coffins at Dover. Bongino believes as I do, that the President is unwilling to sacrifice more young American's lives for a never-ending war.

People like Bill Kristol see this as an exercise in personal clout within the Beltway, with soldiers merely like plastic army men on the field. President Trump sees them as people, and it deeply bothers him to see the grieving families.

I ask you, did Obama go to Dover? I don't remember reading about it, and I don't think he did. I would much rather have a Commander in Chief who takes war seriously and values the lives of his troops.

Captain Hate

Oh yes, Jack; Unseld, Monroe and Gus Johnson brought in a long run of the Bullets being a perennial playoff team. Earl and Gus left and they got the Big E along with some very good players like Phil Chenier, Truck Robinson and Dandridge.

This is the first NBA season in at least eight years that hasn't begun with an overwhelming favorite to win it all.

Anyone understand the deal with this Houston Astros GM who just resigned?

In the midst of their ALCS win celebration, in the locker room, he supposedly shouted “I’m glad we got Osuna” in the presence of two women sports reporters. Osuna is apparently an accused domestic violence perpetrator.

You’re no longer permitted to mention a DV perpetrator’s game in the presence of women? There had to be more to it, right?

Tom R

Have any prominent Democrats, the leftwing media, or Hollywood celebrities called for Katie Hill to resign yet?

Her behavior is considered normal for Progressives so My guess is from their perspective she didn't do anything wrong and shouldn't resign.

Tom R

AB @ 4:52

Osuna sucked that night and gave up a 2 run homerun in the 9th to tie the game. In other words, Osuna's performance in that game was nothing to celebrate which means it's likely Taubman said what he said on purpose to taunt the female reporters.

Whether he should be fired for his politically incorrect comments is a matter of opinion.

Another Bob

If that’s the deal Tom, little girls should grow up IMO.

Was that the game won by a home run off Chapman, who has a history of tuning up de wimmenz and was instrumental in the Cubs breaking the drought? Where do you draw the line? I'm sure there's a backstory here.
