It must be great for the President to get a welcome like that from a huge group of everyday people, not at a political rally, but just out to enjoy the game. And every time something like that happens, other people getjust a little more comfortable with the idea that no matter what anyone says, it really is OK to like this president.

So, let's say your state has realized bullet trains to nowhere are expensive boondoggles and has curtailed its existing project to, literally, nowhere to nowhere [sorry Merced and Bakersfield]. Whaddya do?
Well, if you have guessed the state is CA then yes, you were right when you also guessed;you build another frickin bullet train to nowhere boondoggle.
I wonder if an initiative to rename CA The State of Dementia would qualify for the ballot.

He was pitch perfect at the reception for the Nats and, imo, disarmed a few detractors at how gracious he was in putting the focus on them and their accomplishments.

"Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice, 'since Epstein didn't kill himself?'

Via Instapundit: A Kristallnacht refresher. In some ways it's hard to believe that it was only 80ish years ago. Anti-Semitism has been on the rise for a couple of decades now, but it has seriously accelerated in Europe, for reasons we all comprehend. So far we haven't seen government incited anti-semitic incidents, but hushing them up is not going to reverse the trend, and I worry that tipping points are not as hard to reach as we might like. With people like Ilhan Omar "normalizing" the public expression of anti-semitic sentiments, it's time for Republicans to start challenging Democrats on where they stand. I find it almost impossible to understand why such a big chunk of the Jewish vote still goes to Democrat candidates.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads to fortune yet Epstein didn't kill himself.

Ha. Typepad would not let me post my comment with a link to "The Lid" (formerly known as the Yid with Lid, I believe.) Tried three times. I converted it to a Tiny URL, et voila, the comment posted, no sweat. More than a little ironic, given the topic.

JM Hanes

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: Nay, nay, we shall not die
Tonight! But soft ye now! Who goes there?

Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show that Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself.

In 2016, I was one of a small number of pundits who predicted that Donald Trump would win the presidential election. This was not because I fully appreciated Trump’s appeal to voters; rather, because I had been saying for years that Hillary Clinton would never be president ...

I am now ready to say the same about Elizabeth Warren: she will never be president.

It was the cell in which Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.

Stone Barrington and Dino Bachetti entered Elaine's on a Sunday evening, and drinks were brought to them immediately.
They took their usual table, and Elaine came over and sat down. "You two are oddly dressed," she said. "For you. What's going on?" They replied "Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself."

Lots of countries are backing Gen. Haftar against the UN-backed Tripoli government.

I've also seen reports that Russia's Wagner group has sent snipers into the country to back Haftar.

Neither side has warplanes, but they both launch attacks with missile-firing drones.

Turkey seems to be the only country backing the Tripoli government.

"Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who only speaks on politics in times of crisis and wields enormous influence over public opinion in Shia-majority Iraq, held security forces accountable for any violent escalation and urged the government to respond as quickly as possible to demonstrators' demands."

"He says he's supporting protests and that we should keep going, but he hasn't helped. The speech won't make a difference either way," said one woman protesting in Baghdad whose son was killed in recent clashes.

"without any evidence" is the next meme we should ridicule.

Sherlock Holmes, "without any evidence," solved the crime with deductive reasoning. He simply "inferred" the evidence. Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard was unavailable for comment after earlier disparaging Holmes efforts.

hoyden

jim nj, I look forward to the day when Democrats and their MFM presstitutes get saddle sore from riding the "without any evidence" hobby horse.

jim nj

Oh, and, Narciso, thank you for the link to NEMESIS. Fascinating.

I click links to new tabs and then review them when loading up a new comments page and can never remember who posted what.

Otherwise I'd give credit where due.

Last night I surmised how we might confuse the issue of an undersea naval vessel or airborne warplanes with decoys, jamming or some other method of confusing the enemy's detection systems.

I'm still trying to figure out how to disguise, spoof or not have a surface vessel register on defenses. I mean there is a certain amount of bulk associated with a surface ship.

And then I thought we might be playing "mind games" with the Chinese.

Let them think we can disguise a fleet approach. Create sub-surface or surface drones that can pop-up, so to speak, and mimic a surface fleet.

You would have to fool more then one defensive detection system. It would have to happen instantaneously. Something that would give them no time for further analysis. It would have to engender a launch or no-launch decision.

A drone that could instantly change its perspective from covert to overt.

Something reflective and designed like an automotive air bag that could explosively expand to multiples of its original size.

Jim Sunny,

With modification, it's a direct quote from the beginning of Stuart Wood's "D. C. Dead."

Good Pickup. I've read dozens of Stuart Wood's books. Stone Barrington is the lead character in all of them, and one book builds on another so it's best read in series.

It's the kind of book that's hard to put down.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084997/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Chiefs, a mini-series based on his early work, was awesome.

He wrote several different series of books. All of them interesting, and then combined all of the characters in his Stone Barrington novels.

You will like any of his books, but it is best to start at the beginning and watch the character grow.

The plot thickens:

A State Department official who served in the U.S. embassy in Kiev told Congress that the Obama administration tried in 2016 to partner with the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden but the project was blocked over corruption concerns.

George Kent, the former charge d’affair at the Kiev embassy, said in testimony released Thursday that the State Department’s main foreign aid agency, known as USAID, planned to co-sponsor a clean energy project with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden as a board member.

At the time of the proposed project, Burisma was under investigation in Ukraine for alleged corruption. …

Kent testified he personally intervened in mid-2016 to stop USAID’s joint project with Burisma because American officials believed the corruption allegations against the gas firm raised concern.

The time line is important here. Hunter Biden started getting money from Burisma in 2014. In February 2016, Burisma’s top-shelf international lobbying firm used Hunter’s name to fast-track an appointment with a senior State Department official to deny reports of corruption involving Burisma:
