Just checked. My Prog library in SVL doesn't carry Lee Smith's Plot Against the President.
I still have a valid card for the nearby Cupertino library. They have 1 copy with 17 holds. Now 18 LOL.

$1 trillion in federal spending has done nothing to close the achievement gap.

It was never intended to.

It was intended to produce students who are ignorant of history, and deficient in life skills, to make them less self-sufficient and this more reliable Democrat voters. And it has succeeded dramatically in that aim.

If we have the TRANSCRIPT, why do we need the analysis and opinion of former OBAMA employees.

A strategic bacon reserve for when the African swine flu gets to this continent, might be a real good idea.

Once teachers were no longer allowed to discipline students, achievement gap exploded.

Thugs in the cities are basically telling the teachers to eff off, with no consequences.

Not rocket science.

I am fully in favor of an overhaul of how we fund public education, which is where I think DeVos is going. I want to emulate the Arizona model, which is essentially vouchers that can be spent however a family chooses.

We deliberately chose to live in our school district because of the public alternative middle/high school that pperates a bit like a charter school and is basically grandfathered in as it was a 70's era experiment that has enough support in the community to keep the money grubbers from shutting it down, as they desire to do every 10 years or so.

The problem is that the school has a lottery system and the demand is incredibly high - last year only 41% of the applicants gained admission. People start questioning whether to continue to fund it whenever budget cuts are in view.

My assistant principal in high school was also the head football coach. He had a wooden paddle with holes in it and every single student knew if they got into a fight, got caught smoking or broke whatever rule they were going to his office and getting their ass whacked.

What’s the JOM take on this new testimony by Sondland on the quid pro quo? Haven’t read the transcript but it seems like it’s all his subjective understanding of what Rudy might have been thinking. Hardly a smoking gun, but the NYT and WaPo are in an orgasmic state.

2. Lying Dem spin cycle #5348 since mid 2016.

jimmyk:

Wish I could remember for sure, but I believe I read Sondland's "new" testimony consists of saying something like, on second thought he had "come to believe" there was a quid pro quo. So it's not new facts, just a revised opinion.

clarice

TomR and MM, read the damn Post story--they recruited girls from there to be nannies in upstate NY using as a ploy they'd be out of danger. Doesn't mean the group was part of that cult.

Captain Hate

Texas Monthly, a pretty liberal magazine, published a nice epitaph on Beto's campaign, noting that he had destroyed his ability to ever run for office in Texas again. They had what I thought was a good take on how he went so wrong - first, he never realized that during his Senate run, he was totally a media creation, with fawning adulation. And that was all "look at young, hip, Moderate Beto, who is Friendly and Cool, compared to that nasty mean old Ted Cruz!!!"

Beto thought it was all about him and how great he was, but it was just marketing. So he went national thinking it would happen again, but here came Butttigieg, and he was the same as Beto but a point higher on the Victimology pyramid, so all of the media support dumped Beto and moved to the new exciting Gay Guy, who was otherwise the same.

This is where Beto should have started to try and develop his own political voice, but he panicked and decided he REALLY needed to go Total Woke to get the magic back. And that's when he started to talk about confiscating guns, and penalizing churches. His plan not only failed miserably, it was so badly thought out that it destroyed his chance to ever run for any public office again. Bye Bye Beto!!!

JMH,Susan Collins is probably in for the run of her political life. Her opponent,Sara Gideon is an attractive and popular southern Maine candidate,although her campaign has already had some campaign money *issues*. Maine is trending blue,despite ME-02 going for Trump. The ME-02 Dem Congressman (Jared Golden) voted for the impeachment inquiry,so he got his marching orders. We heard lots of grumbling about Collins over the summer. She hasn't announced her run for a fifth term, but a good source told me that McConnell will put all his eggs ($$$) in the Collins basket before any other tight race.

JMH - Still steaming from this comment "Perdue has his work cut out for him in this demographically shifting state. He needs to turn out rural, conservative voters who are loyal to the president, while not turning off well-educated, suburban voters repelled by Trump." What about well-educated suburban voters who love Trump? Just so pathetic...

Not sure how things will shake out in Georgia. I'm sure the Dems will pour $ into Ga. with an open seat at stake. I'm fairly confident Alabama will replace Doug Jones.

I am with you. I have a BA, live in the suburbs, and LOVE President Trump!

I am way tired of hearing people trash him. I do not find him vulgar or abrasive, I find him charming and friendly, a few cuss words don't bother me, and I LIKE the guy!

President Trump is way smarter than the news people think. How do they think the President has gotten all of this stuff done?

Re. the latest FBI screwup in the Flynn case, when does this judge decide he’s had enough of being embarrassed by the government turning his courtroom into a clown show?

The Infamous Ignatz

--Brady material is not ordinarily produced before a plea agreement--

I find that a thumb on the scale of justice in favor of the prosecution that is incompatible with the American theory of justice.
It allows the prosecution to suppress exculpatory material that would in many cases no doubt lead to a different or no plea agreement if it were revealed.
I don't care if it's a pedophile, a rapist or a serial killer case; it allows the state to unduly pressure a citizen into confessing to a crime without actually charging him with it until after he confesses. It is institutionalized, SCOTUS approved prosecutorial abuse IMO.

Marlene

Clarice @ 6:19

I suggest you take your own advice and read the story as well. Once you do you will see that my comment was correct. According to the article, the Mormon community these slain Americans lived in was CONNECTED to the NXIVM sex cult.

The outpost Mormon community in Mexico is where underlings of Nxivm leader Keith Raniere recruited young women to work as nannies in an upstate New York compound run by the accused cult — suggesting at least in part that the jobs would get the girls away from their home region’s drug violence, according a man hired by Raniere to produce a documentary about the group.

Do you really think the recruited young women actually ended up working as nannies?

Narciso

Organization, that became the heart of the sinaloa cartel, guzman loeras.

Captain Hate

Lots of hanging judges at the Marcy Wheeler site ready to toss rights of the accused in the wood chipper. Must be prosecutors with substance problems.

Jane

We know for sure the WP and NYT made up stories to aid and abet the deep state. I don’t see any chance at consequences except exposure. Can someone tell me I’m wrong?

MissMarple2

Ugh. Hoggsett the Democrat was re-elected mayor by a fairly large margin.

That means more potholes unfilled and more electric buses. Plus a democrat in charge of the elections next November.

The Infamous Ignatz

--According to the article, the Mormon community these slain Americans lived in was CONNECTED to the NXIVM sex cult....
...Do you really think the recruited young women actually ended up working as nannies?--

I believe clarice was referring to the connotation that "connected to" means "a part of" not "a victim of"; a connotation I noted myself.
It may not have been the intended implication but that's what it sounded like.

Ig, Marcy didn't know when she wrote that that the DOJ has just fessed up that the two agents' notes were mixed up--whoops! The whole question of which agent wrote what when is hugely important and it looking like Pientka was not the main note-taker but our friend Peter S., who was of course out for blood.

Tom R

Iggy @ 7:58

The article could use more details but based on the choice of wording it sounds to me like it was Mexican girls getting recruited as sex slave, not white Mormon girls.

...the jobs would get the girls away from their home region’s drug violence

Would that region in Mexico be the home region to white Mormon girls? Also, sounds like that Mormon community is a mission. They wouldn't need to become nannies to escape the drug cartel violence. They would just go back to their permanent home in the US.
