I do agree about kissinger and the arabist turn, for pollard you cam also substiture edward lee howard, who barely knew where the cia commisary was.

Narciso, you have a unique world view amongst all of us here at JOM. You are eclectic and I believe you are smart and learned. You are also somewhate obtuse and somewhat cryptic at times. I am not criticizing nor judging you Narciso. I would think and believe, that after all of these years, that you and I are friends. What we are witnessing in REAL TIME is AMAZING and extremely scary. MOST OF THIS can be "distilled" quite SIMPLY into it's own logical reasons for BEING.
Schumer is SCUM. He blustered and bloviated like a CLOWN and spoke like a BIG MOUTHED FOOL....about and vis a vis, the INTEL COMMUNITY having 6 ways "FROM SUNDAY" having the ability to get back at POTUS DJT, for questioning or holding this group of ROGUE FEDERAL and BUREAUCRATIC PEOPLE to account. THINK ABOUT THIS. POTUS DJT, is ACCUSED of HIGH CRIMES and MIDEMEANORS, for having a NORMAL CONVERSATION with the PRESIDENT of UKRAINE. Yet SCHUMER makes the claim and threat, that the PRESIDENT will be in jeopardy from the DEEP STATE, by QUESTIONING their actions and methods.

Narciso

Narciso, Sir, you are a friend, and you are full of vim and vigor.
I have morphed, or in the case of BI-BARRY, I may have EVOLVED in my hard nosed beliefs.
The IRAQ/AFGHANISTAN and other over seas ENDLESS WARS, have become troubling to me.

OK, lets go to WAR. I am a CONSERVATIVE in my more ADULT years. My most beloved and now mid-thirties and DADDY to 2 with a wife NEPHEW , was SHOT THRU and THRU the left shoulder as a MARINE in 2004 in ANBAR. FOR WHAT????
Win the FIGHT or don't send our SONS and NEPHEWS to be TARGETS.
My NEPHEW is OKAY. No permanent physical injuries,
When he came home, he and I, his uncle Gus, stayed up ALL NIGHT DRINKING BEER and purging his SOUL and HEART and GUTS of what he ENDURED, SAW, and went back for another TOUR of duty in IRAQ.

Win or don't get in.

Narciso

Its going to be 17 years off and on, that the us has been there. The place is in open revolt like lebanon for similar reaaons

GUS

You know what Narciso?? I'm pretty precise, and I need to know details and the truth for the sake of making my OPINIONS, or to be able to truthfully and accurately debate LIBTARDS or even well meaning non-libtards.
I never calculated March 2003 until TODAY.
Narciso, I am somewhat embarassed to admit it.
When my beloved nephew Richard became a MARINE, FOX COMPANY 2/24 out of Wisconsin and deployed to IRAQ, I was so so so so proud. I still am.
Rick/Richard was wounded in ANBAR in DEC 2004, if memory serves me. He was fortunate, and he recieved a PURPLE HEART and other combat medals, and he went back for 2 more tours.
THIS IS MY FUCKING NEPHEW. MY SISTERS BOY.
I have a BOY, I have a SON.

Win or DO NOT GET IN.

White House directing federal agencies to cancel NYT and Washington Post subscriptions

It's not just the White House cancelling the papers. I like this idea.

Reminds me of boss Frank Hague, mayor of Jersey City from 1917 to 1947. The local paper, The Jersey Journal, pissed him off. He banned the paper at city hall and threatened to fire any city employee who bought a copy. They arrested newsboys for littering. Fire wardens cited the printing press area as a fire hazard twice - first over the ink - then over the rolls of newsprint. The paper's lawyers had to go to court twice to re-open the paper.

After a truce was declared The Jersey Journal had a new nickname, "The Jersey Urinal," because boss Hague had pissed all over it.

Gus,

Given the current technology, I think it's foolish too, but with the CAFE standards in place they have to do this.

The big three can't compete economically in the dinky fuel-saver car market, so this is how they have to move to meet the CAFE standards.

jim nj

https://spectator.org/the-case-for-indicting-john-brennan/

GUS

Jim nj. You are PROLLY correct. Our country our nation, has created LAWS and RULES, designed to satisfy, FUCKING DISTURBED FUKWADS. Bureaucratic rules and LAWS prohibit the "errrrrrrrrrrrr" GOVERNMENT, and retarded fukwads from doing what NORMAL TAXPAYERS, would logically do.
Jim nj, my friend....you mentioned "CAFE" Standards. Do you recognize how FUCKED UP, that entire CONCEPT is???

GUS

Jim 3:59. This is the PROBLEM.
We are playing by THEIR nonsensical COMMIE rules.
"CAFE STANDARDS" or RULES, or LAWS, are MORONIC.

Marine amphibious assault ships that could previously only launch tilt-rotor aircraft and helicopters can now carry 13 F-35B's.

jim nj

Gus,

It's like everything else the government mandates. What seems to make sense early on becomes unobtainable later.

The CAFE standard assumed, when it was implemented, that the Big Three could compete in the gas-sipper market at a profit and these cars would offset the bigger vehicles.

They can't. They've tried. They failed.

IMO they should abolish the CAFE standards outright. That will never happen because of the environmental groups and California.

If memory serves me correctly CAFE stands for something like Corporate Average Fuel Economy. A possible move might be to an industry-wide measure. Let Detroit build what it builds best and let the gas-sipper companies do their thing and average it out.

All that CAFE managed to do was to cripple the Big Three so badly that two of them had to be rescued by government bail-outs.

This is like Chinese central-planning at its worst.

This is why it's important for Trump and the Federal government to pry away California's ability to set its own standards that other states can adopt.

If that happens the next argument against CAFE standards is consumer freedom. Let people buy whatever car, SUV or truck they want and let the industry decide which market niche they want to supply without penalty.

Yes, we've talked about this before. For whatever reason, I thought GWB was younger than the other two. Slick looks like something a dog barfed up, surely from multiple unrevealed STDs and being married to The Beast.

“TV Reporter Climbs All Over Classic Cars”

I see no reason other than spite for this clown to do this.

Station couldn’t fire him fast enough, and I hope every owner files vandalism charges and sues him for the cost of refinishing. If there was a producer urging him on, charge and sue him/her too.

Matt K. Lewis: Please donate to my Patreon and I'll give you this gayballs shirt I designed.
Is it that bad, guys? What price dignity?
Might I suggest a course in learning to code?
Matt K. Lewis has always challenged conservatives with intriguing and provocative questions, like: Who the fuck is this guy? Why does this guy float from one cush job to the next (always at a liberal website, of course) without having any kind of actual audience or influence? Has anyone actually read one of his "columns" all the way through without taking a nap or being overcome by the intense desire to inappropriately touch a schoolboy? Who the fuck arranged to have him declared Blogger of the Year at CPAC, and which dessicated mummies from the Rockefeller era were his greatest competition that year? Who exactly is this foppish dandyboy's Angel Backer making sure he's always in a jaunty blazer with Big Shiny Nautical-Themed Buttons! despite not having any kind of audience? No, seriously, whose D is he S-ing? Who is the Corporate Liberal Daddy Warbucks who decided that MSNBC-Friendly Milquetoast Fake Republicanism has a fever, and the only cure is more Matt K. Lewis?
Ever notice that a lot of these guys are always the ones that lefties want to hire to be ineffectual or push a liberal version of "conservatism" that their leftwing readers won't be too upset by? Why are so many of these alleged "conservative" media types coincidentally the left's favorite "conservatives"?

I never got how WeWork ended up a Street darling.

If I understand it, they leased space, built generic office space, then sublet to very small and startup businesses? The selling point being certain shared facilities that each business might need from time-to-time, but didn’t have to provide for themselves?

Wish OL were here to speak to this, but that seems a “grind it out” sort of operation, not a big quick hit operation that would be a big hit IPO. There had to be a quasi-scam somewhere.

And that Neumann clown sure seems out of his depth (and an egomaniac).

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I still maintain that "human scum" comment was meant for something more egregious than disagreeing with Trump.

WeWork space demands required owners to refi to upgrade to spec. That created new CMBS.

Like the other internet companies that aren't earning money I wonder if Amazon is too focused on next-day delivery. They are losing money on next-day delivery.

I'm sure that Amazon thought they could crush their competition with next-day delivery, but how many people are there that need that immediate gratification?
