Ingraham told Republicans to get on the "offensive."

"Republicans need to get off the defensive and stay on the offensive," Ingraham said. "Demand action by the House that actually helps working families remind voters that the Democrats' real motivation behind impeachment is rage and hatred and vengeance and impeachment travesty."

The reality is that political ads are usually arguably true and arguably false. So who gets to decide what’s true and what’s not becomes the key question. In this polarized atmosphere, whom would you trust to make the calls?

matt - deplore me if you must

My theory is that the home teams were having too much fun/distraction at home. Very hard to understand how some of the best pitchers in the game just melted down on both sides. Maybe there were some Mantle antics involved.

But it was a hell of.a series and you can't argue too much except a few calls, and no ump is perfect.

Matt, my daughter just started playing volleyball and she said she found home games really distracting, that it was much easier to focus on the play at away games.

We assume professionals are beyond those human foibles, and we apparently would be wrong.

Very hard to understand how some of the best pitchers in the game just melted down on both sides.

Except for Stras and Max, the other Nats starters are good but not aces and the Astros lineup is just full of mashers particularly in that bandbox of a stadium. Frankly I think the Nats pitchers overachieved.

From Narc's 10:32

One can speculate as to what was really driving Yates those three or four days in January 2017. Perhaps she saw the Flynn affair as a last stand against an administration she’d come to despise in the very short time she served under Trump’s leadership. Perhaps she needed one last scalp before she moved on to private life. Who knows?

Perhaps she was a goddamn traitor who should have been fired at 12:01 PM on January 20th, and marched out of the building by security, along with everyone on her staff.

Narciso

Point taken, but she was part of the tripwire, she couldnt be fired untio there was an atty general in place.

Tom R

From Narciso's 10:32 link

Carter Page’s communications—and those of anyone with whom he communicated, and anyone with whom they communicated—were being monitored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Security Agency.

This is a good time to point out the likely reason Rosenstein approved the extension of Page' FISA warrant. It is an established fact that Stefan Halper communicated directly with Carter Page prior to the 2016 election. Thanks to the 2-hop rule described in the quote above, by renewing the Page FISA warrant Team Trump was able to reverse the direction of the surveillance and monitor every electronic communucation from Halper as well as anyone from the Deep State/Obama criminal cabal that Halper communicated with.

The Infamous Ignatz

--While the utilities own the right-of-way for their transmission lines there is no reason that state agencies or the California National Guard can't help out.--

It's not quite that simple. The hue and cry of fickle Californians to seeing right of ways cleared of enough vegetation to truly make fires significantly less likely would probably doom the career of the politicians backing it. We're talking about almost 40 million people and the power lines that service them. To make right of ways fire proof/resistant through the scores of thousands of miles of lines that go through the tall forests of CA and the communities/developments in them would simply not be tolerated. The griping now about PG&E just going back to their previous level of clearing after decades of minimal pruning [at most homeowner's insistence]
is nothing compared to what would happen if they went full bore.
It's a very difficult problem to solve. The people are fickle; they don't want fires, but they don't want what will prevent them and they most assuredly don't want to give up living where they occur. California has vast forests and fast growing and very large trees. It has millions of people living in them and a vast grid of power lines going wherever the people do. It also has a hot dry season that in my area that usually extends from mid/late April to mid/late November.And except for the central valley and deserts is mountainous and rugged.
All that = lots of fires. The worst fire in memory, loss of life wise, was the Camp Fire started by PG&E equipment last year. What caused it? A transmission tower.[same with the current Kincade Fire] The relatively few transmission lines already have massive clearing done under them so that no tree can touch them and they are on metal towers so big most trees are under them anyway. But it would not even be possible to so sterilize the right of ways they're on to prevent fires. Most transmission lines are fairly remote and it only takes one spark to start a fire in grass or groundcover that hasn't had rain for five or six months.
CA is also prone to dry lightning, and lots of stupid/negligent/evil people which is what starts the worst blazes. PG&E is responsible for a minority of fires in CA.
CA is also far too big to log/treat/burn enough area to seriously dent the propensity for fire.
When the white man arrived about half the forests were old growth. The rest was at some stage of recovering from fire.
we have had bad policies for decades so we can nibble at the margins and reduce to some extent the problem, but the problem is at its essence an accident of climate, tree cover and terrain and the presence of far too many people in the most fire prone parts of that terrain.

Narciso

Thats no reason to do anything tom R, this is a total fraud that they keep pilimg on to.

Water is wet

@PZF

BREAKING NEWS: House of Representatives has passed the Democratic resolution establishing procedures for the next phase of their impeachment inquiry.

The Infamous Ignatz

--I just can't understand what happened to this once great can-do state.--

--Whatever happened to the visionaries who broke every rule to bring water to Laos Angeles?--

The second question answers the first. The "visionaries" were progressive criminals who surreptitiously bought up land and water rights in the Owens Valley, which is fed by the snows of the Sierra east slope and used the power of government and cronyism to largely destroy a once fairly verdant valley in the arid rain shadow of the Sierra in order to fuel their vision of millions of teeming Los Angelinos sedulously making a mess of the coastal plain.
That same criminal vision is now turned to the modern version of progressivism which has turned from exploiting people to feed their old idea of progress which was forced development and central planning to the new incarnation of forced de-development and central planning.
The new boss is more destructive than the old boss, but it's the same coercive crew of crooks.

Narciso @ 11:29

I think you missed the point. Don't you think Team Trump should use any legal tactic possible to uncover the corruption that occurred under the Obama administration?

I would be willing to bet you a six pack of beer that a significant amount of the evidence Durham will be using to get convictions will come from Halper and all the other conspirators he communicated with.

Narciso @ 11:48

What does Codevilla's oped have to do with the price of rice in China? Are you just unwilling to admit that it is possible Rosenstein reapproved the fourth Page FISA warrant because he was a loyal member of Team Trump and Team Trump used the Page FISA warrant to surveil Halper and other members of the Deep State/Obama criminal cabal?

James D.

Release the Horowitz report.

I’m sure it’ll be out in just another #twoweeks, right?

Narciso

Any day no this (redacted) garbage from a company cubicle warmer gets put out.

The Infamous Ignatz

The San Joaquin Valley was originally alternately verdant and arid. There used to be a large lake in it southern end of it Lake Tulare which was the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, but it is also on that line where winters can be wet or often pretty dry.
The water feeding Lake Tulare was diverted for agriculture which dried it up.
When that proved insufficient the California Water Project was born to deliver more and more Northern CA water to southern CA, both residents and San Joaquin ag.
Vast parts of it are now dry again the victims of court orders to dump water into the delta and ocean for fishies, too many people and an effective moratorium on new dams/water projects.

Narciso

Tom R @ 11:57

I’m u willing to admit that Rosenstein is anything other than - at best - a self-serving careerist rat.

Which I don’t even believe; I think he’s just another corrupt traitor one among thousands at DoJ. Self-Serving rat is the best case
Scenario.

I am beyond sick of the Robert Ludlum crap. If there actually are good guys working for the President, they need to start doing things that are unambiguously good, and doing them publicly.

Tom R

Now that House Democrats have held their sham PR stunt vote Trump and the GOP should counterpunch by aggressively attacking all the House Democrats from districts Trump won in 2016 who voted for the sham PR stunt. Even though it wasn't a formal, binding impeachment vote, that is how Team Trump should spin it in the hopes it puts those vulnerable House Democrats on the defensive.

Narciso

Just another rubber stamper, but seeimg the collage of fusion sourced pieces you could see the pressure to do something.

Tom R

I think he’s just another corrupt traitor one among thousands at DoJ

At least you are consistent with your beliefs even when presented with plausible, logical alternatives.

James D.

Tom, you may be right.

But I have no faith left to give anyone in DC (other than the President himself, since he's actually tried to do everything he promised). I need to see actual proof. Not just inferences or guesses or logical possibilities, but actions that can't be misinterperted.

Given the decades of lies and obfuscations and distortions, I don't think I'm unreasonable in that.

Jane

Boy there have to be serious ramifications to this.

Tom R

I think its perfectly reasonable that Trump is the only person you have faith it. With that in mind remember Trump almost certainly learned about Obama spying on him a few days after the election when ADM Rogers visited him at Trump Tower. March 2017 timeframe is when Trump sent out a tweet accusing Obama of wiretapping him. Rosenstein signed the final Page FISA Renewal in late June 2017 timeframe AFTER Mueller was appointed SC on 17 May 2017.

The exact date of when Trump learned that Obama used the Page FISA warrant to spy on him is unknown but my bet is sometime between November 2016 and March 2017. At a minimum that gave Team Trump 3 months (March 2017 thru June 2017) to develop a counterattack strategy. In the movie I am watching my faith in Trump leads me to believe there is no way in hell Trump allows Rosenstein to keep his job if Rosenstein backstabs him and renews the Page FISA warrant to help the Deep State/Mueller SC destroy Trump. I am almost certain Trump fully blessed Rosenstein renewing the Page FISA warrant for the reasons I already spelled out.
