The Infamous Ignatz

--So I'm not really upset at this whole thing, but I think the next step is to bring Turkey to its knees with economic sanctions.--

Why?
Erdogan is scum. So are 90+% of the rulers of the world. Why harm the people of Turkey because some Turks are shooting at some Kurds and Syrians? They've been shooting at each other with whatever weapon existed ever since Turks, Kurds and Syrians existed.
If the object is displacing Erdogan how do we know we don't get someone worse?
If we did succeed in forcing Turkey's withdrawal from Syria they'd probably just move down the street and start killing Kurds in eastern Turkey instead.
How about we worry about and protect OUR interests which don't seem appreciably advanced by a Turkey on its knees economically.

The big takeaways from the Hunter Biden interview? Sleazy runs in the family. Same insincere, pandering tone, same condescending way of trying to con you, dumb enough to actually believe we’re dumber than them. #HunterBiden

The Infamous Ignatz

Consider how far gone our politics are for just a minute;

Republicans used to point out that Lyndon LaRouche is affiliated with the Democrats, in order to embarrass them through guilt by association, whenever LaRouche's group would do or say something really nutty.

Now, LaRouchies are parodying the Dems by making fun of Dem arguments and its LaRouche's bunch in danger of being embarrassed by their association with the nutjob Dems who are now considerably farther out in Fruitcake City than even conspiracy kooks like the LaRouchies.

More on Hunter Biden:

There are both video clips and text in this article.

What jumped out at me:

“I was vice chairman of the board of Amtrak for five years. I was the chairman of the board of the U.N. World Food Program. I was a lawyer for Boies Schiller Flexner, one of the most prestigious law firms in the world,” he said.

In other words, he got one position after another due to who his father was.

@ByronYork

Well look at this. Dems impose tight secrecy on impeachment interviews. Can't let witnesses coordinate their stories! And yet, a detailed version of damaging parts of Fiona Hill testimony appears in NYT. Meanwhile, Republicans obey secrecy rules.
=====================================
Jim Jordan mentioned something about this yesterday. The question is, what do we do about it?

If the GOP guys leak, the dems will go after them and kick them out if the hearings.

Former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has rejoined the law and lobbying firm King & Spalding, the company announced Tuesday.

Coats, 76, will be a senior policy advisor in the firm’s National Security team and based in Washington. He will advise clients about how the national security landscape implicates their businesses, emerging tools and processes employed by the U.S. and other governments to mitigate national security threats and the congressional process.
==================
1. He knows a lot of Top Secret stuff. Why is this allowed?

2. Why, at 76, he isn't retiring?

3. I think we should get a client list immediately. Fat chance, I am sure.

So now presstitutes deserve special protections??

Sen. Richard Blumenthal proposes bill making threatening or attacking "anyone doing fact gathering or news operations" a federal crime.

Well, Senator Dick can just go screw himself, first of all.

Second of all, who defines "fact gathering or news operations" ? Will there be a strict definition in the bill? Will it be a list of approved news organizations that receive protection? Will it be based on how long the organization has been in business, how many employees it has, how many readers/viewers, how much profit it makes?

Question for the CA folks:

Here in Ithaca, our district routinely fails to get the buses to school on time. It's a sore spot and the transportation dept has thrown out a bunch of excuses, which mostly allowed them to get away with not fixing the problem. We now have the extensive (and well-paid) administrators on it to solve the problem.

Anyway, a friend of mine with school-aged kids in Berkeley said that districts no longer offer bussing. A private company called Traffix offers services to be purchased by parents, but that not enough seats are offered so it's first come, first serve. I'm surprised that's legal, which makes me wonder if that could happen in NY too. She also said that the new law mandating the 8:30 start time is hugely problematic for working parents.
