Global Warming Pinned On Kid Who Keeps Leaving The Front Door Wide Open While The Heater Is On buff.ly/2DhvGew



This columnist thinks Melania's clothing is beautiful. At the bottom of this is a video of the designer who does a lot of her clothing, and it's interesting that he also did items for Laura Bush and Michelle Obama.



Finally finished that loooong article on Obama in Politico Magazine which I linked on the prior page.

Second paragraph before the end, I see this:

"One close adviser remarked that Obama actually enjoyed the backlash and debate that his recent comments created and that he was eager to help quarterback the campaign against Trump next year. “As we all know, he’s an extraordinarily self-confident guy,” he said. "
Bolding is mine. I hope Brad Parscale picks that up and realizes that any candidate getting the dem nomination is going to have a kibbitzer giving unwanted advice. I cannot think of anything more disruptive.



In an era of virulent political tribalism, how can we recover the habits necessary for meaningful citizenship? Please join AEI for a conversation about the strategies and institutions we need to depolarize American politics.

Americans on different sides of our political divide seem increasingly incapable of speaking to one another or holding a coherent set of facts in common. The reasons for this development seem to have less to do with traditional ideological or policy divisions and more with a profound cultural breakdown we are only beginning to understand.

Please join AEI for a conversation with Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Jonathan Rauch and Mercatus Center Senior Affiliated Scholar Arnold Kling on the forces undergirding modern tribalism and the tools that exist to curb its noxious effect on American political discourse.

Because nothing will heal the cultural divide like public policy think tanks that at best differ on methods to shared goals they are rarely detailed about using a narrative that is duplicitous to anyone that has factual knowledge of the subject.

Apparently ramapnt ignorance heals the divide.

Ryan Lizza's ability to communicate complete nonsense is striking even by the low Politico standards.

AOC encouraged workers at a growing solar
energy startup to unionize. They did, and the CEO fired the entire
workforce. LOLGF, learn to code.

You'd have to have a heart of stone not to laugh at that.

Oh, the blue states don't like it when the rich get taxed?

The formal aid that Biden was threatening Poroshenko he would cancel if he didn't fire the prosecutor is just the tip of the iceberg. There where hundreds of millions of dollars also flowing into Ukraine from other government agencies in the form of grants, loans and loan guarantees.

Check out this thread. It's all well sourced.


Yes, they are scared.

Requesting a prayer from anybody who can spare one - my Aunt Charlotte (90 years old) is in the hospital with an unspecified infection, and some divine help probably couldn't hurt.

James D.

Maybe also a prayer that the son she gave up for adoption gets over whatever issues he's nursing and comes to visit her - he came to see her once, back in 2018, but has dropped out of contact since then and the lack of contact since then has really hurt her.

I think I posted about this - the whole reason they even met was because I did 23&Me, and this guy's daughter also did it and showed up as a second cousin. She then emailed me asking if I had a relative named Charlotte, because they thought she was her dad's birth mother (at the time I had no idea my Aunt had ever had a child - he was born 4 years before me). I talked with my cousin (20 years older than me) and he said, yes, Charlotte had a baby in 1965 and put it up for adoption (she was unmarried, the father was a married man, she was a good Catholic, etc). And apparently Charlotte had been having recurring dreams for a while about the baby she gave up.

Anyway, we all met last September, and it seemed to be a good visit, but since then the adopted son has refused to speak to any of us, and it just breaks Aunt Charlotte's heart.


Peayers for her james d.

James D.

The hilarious thing about my cousin's retelling of my Aunt's pregnancy was the way that, even when she was obviously, unquestionably pregnant, and he (in high school at the time) could clearly see it, NOBODY would say a word about it or acknowledge the fact.

Prayers for your Aunt Charlotte and also the son she gave up for adoption.

I also had an Aunt Charlotte. A devout Catholic who scared the hell out of me and my cousins. She was the aunt we were all threatened with, "Do you want to spend the weekend with Aunt Charlotte?" I bet she's still praying for us, I'll ask her in prayer to pray for your Aunt and son.

Just getting started, but the snowball is definitely building up a head of steam.


Been trying to get some housework done and checked Twitter where some reporter was whining because they are "forced to shout" at the chopper pressers!


That's the idea, moron!

The school deserves to go bankrupt, and based on the behavior of the administration over the past year, it certainly seems like it may be headed in that direction.

Parnas was arrested with prescription antidepressants & opioids. The sole source for CNN’s “Devin Goes to Vienna” lie is a drug-addled, indicted sleazeball desperately hoping that Schiff can get him an immunity deal. He can’t. Hope CNN has good lawyers.

This is priceless. If leftists hate someone for any reason whatsoever, call him Trump. LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva won an upset victory by being anti-ICE. So, he's the anti-Trump. but now the loonies who voted for him are upset that he is bringing back deputies who were fired for excessive force and other charges by his predecessor. So the leftists do an immediate about-turn and we get this in LA Magazine:
"Meet Sheriff Alex Villanueva, the Donald Trump of L.A. Law Enforcement."

To hell with Oberlin. They had Antioch available as a cautionary tale and didn't learn a damn thing. Willful ignorance.



Every time I hear the name "Oberlin", my thoughts go to its Administration and what is undoubtedly their motto...



Looks like the German Green Party Commissars have decided elect "Famine" as their platform:

Stedman is upset at Gaylord for not encouraging his Presidential aspirations. There are lots of comments that apply, none of them favorable to those two clods.



Someone on Twitter mentioned Angela Merkel hadn't been sighted in a while.


I want to mention that Cheshire Cat grin of Pompeo's made me feel quite cheery.

Also, lots of things seem to be happening with more frequency.


John Bolton
It probably goes without saying, that our country’s commitment to our national security priorities is under attack from within. America is distracted. Our enemies are not. We need to make U.S. national security a priority. #JohnBolton

I really can't explain it either. I would think that as sibs grow older they would treasure those relationships. I blame it on sensitivity overload. Family makes an easy target. For some, opinions also tend to become entrenched after a certain age as that youthful spirit that engages and discusses becomes brittle and entrenched. It's silly, really.

I love the story about the door decoration for your father. That he enjoyed it is all that matters. You'll have to tell us what you find for a Christmas decoration.

Abdullah Al Saleh | عبدالله الصالح

My name is Dr. Abdullah al-Saleh and I was the guest of the Qatari government and Prime Minister for 6 months. I learned of their operations in the West and can testify and confirm that everything Alan Bender said in his deposition regarding Rep. Ilhan Omar and Qatar is true.
According to what I read, Omar has been selling information to Qatar who in turn give it or sell it to Iran.

I will pray for your Aunt Charlotte and for her son in the hope that he will come to visit her.
