Does anyone understand what George Soros’ motives are?

I missed the beginning of the rally and didn't realize Lee Greenwood sang "God Bless the USA" LIVE!

How epic!

Catsmeat

I love Georgette Heyer's mysteries, but her Regency stuff is just not historically accurate enough for me--great on the diction, the material culture, the settings--just not great enough on the worldview. Just me! I remember annoying MM making this same point years ago! My best friend loves Heyer's historical romances too--it's just a matter of taste. I'll try Frederica and see if I change my mind.

Tom R

TomR is back on my killfile list. If you can't use killfile on your favorite device, maybe we all need to scroll on by, as we have done for trolls in the past. Because that's what he is.

Is it my fault that Gus behaves like he does and JiB has a hypocritical double standard where he accuses me of being guilty of the behavior his friends display? That’s pretty F’ed up.

Narciso

He has a chip on his shoulder against the west, at ome time he was seemingly a good guy against the soviets, but like bin laden he picked up certain notions

I noticed him first whem aome of the legalize ptopraganda was being funded

Orin Kerr has always been a jackalope, if by jackalope you mean a mushy, middle of the road squish.

It doesn't bother me because I don't know enough about it for iti to bother me. HA!

Kamala Harris claims that she's falling in the polls because people can't accept a woman of color as their President. Funny thing is , these are the primaries and not the general election.

Corrected:

The only people she's actually accusing of racism are her own Democratic primary voters.

I think Soros's definition of an Open Society has always been one that would inevitably close.

I think it depends on the type of society.

Tom, the problem is the same as usual. You constantly insist that your opinion be presumed correct without proof, then demand - sometimes stridently to the point of rudeness - that everyone else prove their opinion beyond a shadow of a doubt.

That’s pretty F’ed up.

Did you see Jane’s post where she claimed she knew where Nunes got his information? If someone is going to make an assertion like that then it needs to be backed up with factual information or a logic based conclusion. I politely answered Jane’s question yet she never told us where she got that information. I made it clear I think Team Trump was who gave Nunes the information. Jane and anyone else is free to disagree with that but if they aren’t willing to provide their own opinion while attacking mine, then IMO that is messed up.

This is what TomR said at 3:36;

If you think you can help Jane out you are more than welcome to answer the same question.

which was in response to this;
Ask yourself Jane!!!!! Hahahahahahahahhaahaa. Tom you crack me up. Do you have a red nose and floppy shoes on???

Later he was called a loser, an asshole, a punk and several other names, but his 3:36 is the comment singled out for criticism while the others are ignored. The double standard borders on the bizarre.

Lexington, KY local politics is run by the National Socialists that run the University of Kentucky.

Unless it messes with the horse business, then they turn more Conservative than any one of us.

I've heard of the petitions to recall the CA Gov but I haven't physically seen one. Our new CA GOP chairman is good. Tough job though.

CAs Dem legislature is trying to break Prop 13 starting with business owned properties first. Prop13 limits property tax increases to a maximum amount per year

Yes, I just had a friend in Oakland complaining about having to pay for busing to school because of Prop13. I guess that's what the school boards are using as an excuse in CA. In NY, they complain about unfunded mandates.

Note the irony in the ecommunist cover.

jim nj

Still catching up. Lots of links to look at and too much commentary on Tom R.

Two things to start off.

The Powell filing in the Gen. Flynn case eviscerates the prosecution and prior defense counsel. I can't see how this can go to sentencing without all these raised issues first being resolved.

The VDH piece on retired generals slandering the President makes my blood boil. These people should be brought before a UMCJ hearing instead of the special operators they are crucifying for no good reason.

jim nj

OK, I've heard enough about the Lee Smith book that I want to read it.

Went on-line to reserve a copy from my library. They are part of a co-op with more than 70 libraries, they have collectively, one copy of the book.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/11/analyst-iraq-protests-overcome-sectarianism-191104190411464.html

I think this is an accurate analysis. The Iraqi people are disgusted with their government, but a lot of the violence is Shia on Shia. Those affiliated with Iran vs. those opposed to corruption of any kind.

The Iraqis also seem to be adopting Lebanese tactics. In particular, choking off roads with barriers and burning tires.

https://www.politico.com/news/2019/11/04/china-trade-tariffs-trump-065669

"China is demanding that President Donald Trump not only eliminate a round of tariffs scheduled to go into effect in mid-December but also wants him to lift another substantial round of penalties imposed in September as Chinese President Xi Jinping considers a visit to the United States to sign a "phase one" trade deal, said three people familiar with internal discussions."

Giving up the pending December tariff increases might make sense. Maybe even the September ones, but no more than that.

Iran-backed Iraq leaders agree on ‘road map’

al-Sistani, the top cleric in Iraq, is backing the protestors. al-Sadr, considered to be Iran-backed, may have slipped his leash for the moment.

I'm beginning to think that if you are an unaligned Iraqi that you don't get to participate and that they see this for themselves.

If you are aligned with a ruling faction you benefit. If you are aligned with the Iranian-backed PMUs you benefit. Different sources of funds. Iraqi in the former, Irani in the latter.

I don't know about the average Iraqi, but if I realized I was just a stinking pawn I'd be pissed.

"Cooperation between Europe and China on reducing climate-warming emissions will be “decisive”, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday, after the Trump administration filed paperwork to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement."

Such idiocy. China has agreed to halt the rise of their emissions in 11 years. I guess Macron is off to India next to heap praise on them for generating almost as much smog in Delhi as in Beijing.

JimNJj, the black cat was the least of the Giants’ problems.

They bring their own bad luck with them. Some other names for “bad luck” are John Mara, Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur.

Hamilton. I think he was the most loyal of Washington's aides, but he had a different perspective on what the economy should be founded upon.

He had little faith in the Jeffersonian ideal of farmer gentry. He believed in banking, finance and manufacture.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_for_Establishing_Useful_Manufactures

Hamilton backed SUM. It took a while, but Patterson became an industrial powerhouse.

North of Patterson many New England streams were dammed and became manufacturing powers.

While farmer gentry may have been a great ideal, the power of the US arose from manufacturing.

Shipping raw materials overseas would have left us as a mere colony. Producing our own goods created a new power.

I've have been a Hamilton fan for a long time. I wish he would have lived a lot longer.

jim nj

James D,

I haven't watched most of the Giants games, but allow me the fantasy that a black cat did them in.

I can't handle the truth.

I'm not a Jets fan, but the 1-6 Jets meet the 0-7 Dolphins and lose. They wind up with a tied record?

Another two weeks, or so, and I'll be off my depression meds, but apparently I'll have to keep up my NFL boycott to succeed.
