matt - deplore me if you must

The Patrick O'Brien novels were based upon Admiral Thomas Cochrane, whom they called the "Sea King". He was the finest single ship captain in British history. But he was as O'Brien described him. Irreverent, disrespectful of his seniors, a risk taker. And a winner.

And we should introduce Pierre Delecto to Carlos Danger, don't you think?

Narciso,

Thanks! Christine O'Donnell is it. I will NEVER forget how nasty Rove was after Castle lost!

That is when I started to know without a doubt that he was no good and that W was a dim bulb for hiring him. It's also when I realized they thought they had things all rigged their way.

MissMarple2

matt - What man would choose those screen names unless he was a porn star or a pedophile or something?

It's sort of like the Trump Curse has struck again!

Narciso

Well thats what you need more of, less gilbert and sullivan parodied captains and admirals

When i saw he followed ashley parker, that (redacted) who humiliated him all through out the campaign

Captain Hate

Remember in 2012 when Sara was telling us how tech savvy Mutt's kids were (she may have specifically mentioned Tagg) and how Gaylord wasn't going to blow Team Rombley out of the water IT wise? That was probably the start of Pierre.

Brilliant strategy imo!

Now in her defense, she didnt know brin and zuckerberg had tipped the balance

I wonder how he got the teaching credentials to work in any school? I will try to find out.

I emailed my friend. His response was 2 words:

"Last Name"

Shocker:)

Buckeye,

I still can't get over he taught French and drama. LOL! All you have to do is look at his blamk face and you know the guy is not exactly a very stable genius! :-)

Narciso,

On that Ryan Fournier tweet I keep getting the "something went wrong" message. What's it say?

Narciso

Its about the katie hill case, amd hes tying it to the sexual harassment settlements disclosure.

Buckeye

Roger that MM.

Narciso,

I can't even imagine. I am still dumbfounded at the gals peeing in the open that Iggy described yesterday.

We are having rain and occasional thunder plus it's about 10 degrees colder than yesterday.

Grabbed from Finch.

Narciso

Note how they dont site any actual statistics of economic growth.

Melinda

Looks like Ukraine was the portal for skimming both USAid AND IMF cash.

Melinda

Who was the head of the IMF for that stretch? Oh. yes, the French Chicago woman.

Narciso

If course it was, and they dont touch thar with a 10 ft barge poll, dsk is a lech, but he was probably a better choice for imf or even prime minister.

Narciso

Of course most of this falls on the putative 'good guys' from tymochenko to poroshenko, so its awkard to ask about the lost money, like oliver twist asking for more gruel.

MissMarple2

OK, I give up. This sucky web site censors content by both url and by subject.

There is an op ed on USdefensewatchdotcom which is an open letter to a notorious Naval officer on the left who got a lot of TV play over the weekend. If you can find it, it's worth reading.

MissMarple2

Here is how Stu called that open letter to my attention:

This is a reminder about the SOB McCRAVEN, who should be recalled to active duty and then brought up on insubordination charges under the UCMJ:

The President is currently in a cabinet meeting. I hope he orders Pompeo to pull Nancy's passport.

3.5x more likely to die of any neurodegenerative disease
5x more likely to die of Alzheimer's

This is big

So rush was right, again?

Jack is Back!

McRaven, even retired, is still covered by UCMJ. All you need is the CO of JAG to bring him up on charges.

As CinC, Trump could do it.

That is when I started to know without a doubt that he was no good and that W was a dim bulb for hiring him.

Rove did a great job for W, overall. The problem is he's part of the GOPe crowd.

That said, as much as I wanted O'Donnell to beat Coons and for the GOPe to fight for its voters' chosen candidate, O'Donnell was a bit of a mess.

Fortunately PDJT knows how to pick and choose among candidates and makes them work for his endorsement.

Melinda

That ALS/MND connection ties into the BMAA risks. High moisture content surfaces, potential standing water.

Interesting.

Washington criticized that decision, which it said recognizes that China uses state-owned enterprises to subsidize and distort its economy but contends the U.S. must use “distorted Chinese prices” to measure subsidies.

Happy Trafalgar Day! Eleven years ago we were in Greenwich looking at the bullet hole in Nelson's uniform right about the time he died (4:30 pm GMT). Only we didn't realize it was Trafalgar Day until an hour or so later.

My friend and I ate whitebait and drank ale in Trafalgar Tavern afterwards. A great day. I still have a really cool mug from the Royal Maritime museum - a replica of an original Success To Nelson mug in the museum collection.

Not sure Evers will follow through on this.

James D.

Rove did a great job for W, overall.

Did he, though?

I'd argue that he - like Carville - was never the genius he was made out to be. They're both like coaches that had everything go right and won an unexpected championship, and dine out on that for the rest of their lives, even if they never again come remotely close to winning in future seasons.

That said, as much as I wanted O'Donnell to beat Coons and for the GOPe to fight for its voters' chosen candidate, O'Donnell was a bit of a mess.

Maybe. But if she hadn't been openly sabotaged by Rove and Castle and the NRSC, she might have won anyway.

James D.

Further on Rove - the genius label, and the view that he somehow singlehandedly dragged Bush to victory, is something you see in Hollywood, too.

It's human nature to point to the one person in charge as the indispensable genius. Look at George Lucas. It's true, Star Wars would never have gotten made if not for him. But if not for all the folks around him who made it better (and in some cases steered him away from bad ideas), it probably would have been a flop.

A little history to Trafalgar Day from my USNA-at-Large buddy:

'Thank God I have done my duty.'

On October 21, 1805, off the coast of Spain, the fleet of the British Empire, under the command of Horatio Lord Admiral Nelson, engaged and decisively defeated a larger French and Spanish Navy.

Previously, Admiral Nelson had lost his right eye capturing Corsica and his right arm attacking the Canary Islands. He captured six and destroyed seven of Napoleon's ships at the Battle of the Nile and successfully assaulted Copenhagen. However, Admiral Nelson is best remembered (and immortalized) for winning one of the greatest naval battles in history, The Battle of Trafalgar. The daring 47-year-old Nelson defeated Napoleon's [age 36] combined French and Spanish fleets, consisting of 33 ships with 2,640 guns off the coast of Spain.

Napoleon received fifteen million dollars two years earlier from selling 600 million acres to the United States [Louisiana Purchase], but it was not enough to change the outcome. Admiral Nelson's defeat of the French navy abruptly ended Napoleon's power at sea, and with it, his dreams of world conquest. The 90,000 French troops assembled on the coast of France were forced to abandon their plans of crossing the English Channel and invading Britain.

During the Battle of Trafalgar, cannonade and musket shot ripped apart ships at point blank range, killing or wounding nearly ten thousand. Admiral Nelson was fatally shot in the spine. He was carried below deck to the ship's surgeon where he died. Admiral Horatio Nelson's last words were: "Thank God I have done my duty."

[At the Naval Academy, the Plebe uniform has three cannonball buttons that represent those 3 battles, Corsica, Canary Islands and Trafalgar.]

Captain Hate,

I just watched this video of Devin Nunes. It was made while he was still running the Intelligence Committee, but it offers some insights into his interactions with Caniddate and then President Trump, and also some clues about how quickly the Intelligence Committees suddenly switched from saying there was no danger from the Russians to Russian Collusion.

Video at the link.

Devin has always gotten it ~ he's just aware that he's allowed to say it out loud. I love him.https://t.co/PH4pNEaP9Z

Maybe. I always thought the 2000 race against a fat mentally ill piece of shit with daddy issues should have been a landslide instead of a nail biter, but the more I see W being chummy with Slick maybe it turned out exactly right.

Some of The Horde credits Rove with turning Texas red which I thought was confusing correlation with causation.

Patterico despises Devin Nunes. You can't beat that as a thumbs up.

Captain Hate,

Nunes is funny and unassuming in that video, and has some interesting stories, too. Since that video was made over a year ago, some of his comments have more significance than they did then.

Romney is gonna soooo regret his idiot kid doing this

Nunes has always been a good guy. Paul Ryan not lifting a finger on his behalf when he was attacked by Schiff proved that.

Porchlight

I should have been clearer - I think Rove did a great job getting W elected. Especially the 2004 re-election (obviously 2000 was way too close).

The strategery thing, not so much.

New Thread.

There might be something to that. Ann Richards was still a huge figure in Texas when W defeated her in 1994. We take the redness for granted (more or less) now, but it certainly wasn't the case when W arrived on the scene. Rove as W's campaign manager and advisor has to get some credit for that.

The irony is that it is the GOPe's feckless immigration blunders that has given the Dems their greatest shot at turning the state blue again. That and the seemingly infinite number of prog refugees from California that have been pouring in to the cities for the last 10 years.
