Robin, eff 'em all

I'm using the generic "him", Robin, as in "any journalist".

Sure, but in that instance I do feel like the gender of that particular journalist was important. That sounds like a lot of lefty women I know who are sure they just haven't explained the situation well enough, because of course they are right and everyone else is dense.

It's this attempt to sound rational and helpful (bless their hearts) rather than confrontational.

Caveat, I couldn't read the actual article because my usual paywall bypass system didn't work.

In your place, I might have told her that if she felt so strongly about climate issues, then she can start living her whole life accordingly.

And then take away her iPhone and anything else made of plastic or that was manufactured overseas and shipped here using fossil fuels etc etc etc etc.

How shrewd of Trump to muse out loud, before the impeachment noise, that he might hold the Chinese deal until after the election.

The Chinese needed to know that Trump didn’t feel over a barrel.

JamesD @ 11:05,

She's a good kid and pretty rational, so we're operating with seed planting in mind. Teenagers do rebel against authority, so I'd rather she see her teachers as the problem, not us.

Taking away her phone would be like losing an appendage - unlike her momma, she's an extrovert.

I heard Salena Zito yesterday on one of the Ricochet podcast say that Biden is the only Democrat who can win western PA and the rust belt.

Imagine.

Marlene, why would they show up? They already know how they will vote.

Robin, eff 'em all

Narc, when I told my husband, who grew up in HK and traveled to the Guangdong province for work several times a year, about the protests emerging there he was shocked.

Robin,

I don't think Biden's health would let him make it through the campaign. And I am pretty sure that there is going to be even more damaging stuff coming out about Hunter and how he got those positions because of his dad. I wonder how much money got transferred to Joe?

henry,

They are desperate to keep that IG report off TV, and of course the media will mostly oblige.

Andy is only looking at this as a courtroom.

On the other hand, the President understands stagecraft. I wonder what he will have up his sleeve.

So Pelosi asked if she "hates" won't give a yes or no, but, in political correctness, she hates when people use the word hate.

Rhetorical camouflage ... in incandescent orange.

Nancy Pelosi just had a nervous fit. She hates that we will soon have 182 great new judges and sooo much more. Stock Market and employment records. She says she “prays for the President.” I don’t believe her, not even close. Help the homeless in your district Nancy. USMCA?

MissMarple2

Dave,

Where did those 2 Obama girls disappear to?

Tom R

And MY reaction is, WHY are they so unhinged?

Answer: quite a few will be going to jail as this plays out.

People make mistakes when they act out of desperation and/or fear. IMO EVERYTHING we are seeing from the Democrats, especially the sham impeachment, is a sign they are in mortal terror of what is going to come out of the Horowitz IG report and Durham criminal investigation. There is no other rational explanation for their behavior.

Captain Hate

I don't think any arrests would come from the OIG report.

It will be interesting to see how CBS covers things per Mel's speculation.

MissMarple2

henry,

If you guys don't think the President is right, take a look at that video I posted the link to at 11:41.

I think I appreciate his bluntness here, saying he doesn't believe her. I don't believe her, either.

Maybe he's trying to get her to retire so he can deal with Steney Hoyer.

Since I am not a physician I am allowed to diagnose Pelosi's 11:41 physical and mental state. She has some kind of palsy in her arm and hand actions which seem uncoordinated with her speech. And a woman who has been criticized by not only the Pope but also the Chief Justice of the Vatican, is not a GOOD CATHOLIC.

In my opinion she is in onset dementia.

MissMarple2

Jack,

If I operated like a democrat, I would accuse her of attacking James Rosen because she is an anti-Semite.

Of course they would, unless properly bribed:

henry @ 12:24

Under Obama, a GOP-controlled Senate bent over backwards to abdicate its Constitutional role so that the Iran deal could proceed without a vote and billions of dollars in cash could be shipped to a terrorist state that's openly at war with us.

Under Trump, a Democrat-controlled House refuses to act on a trade treaty that benefits American workers, AND that incorporates many items that Democrats themselves have pushed for, purely to spite the President.

Tom R

Speaking of Rosenstein, how does the white hat crowd spin the Oct 20th scope memo that he signed, giving Mueller authority to go after Flynn's son.

Since you asked...

Did you read the release of FBI interview transcripts released a couple days back? There are quotes from Trump administration officials stating that Trump was annoyed with Flynn's actions. We don't know the full details yet but if Flynn was still getting paid by Turkey to lobby on their behalf while he was serving as Trump's National Security Advisor then that was a major F up on Flynn's part.

There has to be some reason AG Barr is still trying to enforce Flynn's plea bargain. If you reject the idea that there is 4D Chess involved and that Flynn engineered some kind of sting against the Deep State/Swamp, then the likely explanation is that Trump was indeed annoyed by Flynn's actions, Flynn did indeed do something unethical and/or against the law, and both Trump and AG Barr want to hold him accountable for it.

So Flynn now a black hat to support Rosenstein as a white hat. I am trained in both formal and fuzzy logic so I can follow along, but that combination of flips and spins exceeds the Lougainis limit.

matt - deplore me if you must

Nancy's been praying to Moloch for a long time now.

I do agree that this farce is accelerating to try and derail the IG report. If there are in fact over 100 criminal investigations it's is going to explode all over the place. I'm sure there are some duplicates in there, but since when did an IG report create so much chaos within those being investigated?

I stand by my comment that the flights out of DC to non-extraditable countries are going to be full shortly.

Melinda

Even moloch says you can be too devoted.

But they are expert i dialing to noise up to eleventy.

Tom R

Henry @ 12:37

That's a strawman. I never made the point that Flynn is a black hat.

What I did do is offer a possible explanation based on NEW information that was revealed this week.

MissMarple2

A friend just texted me that John Kerry was going to campaign with Biden on Friday.

I guess they figure that Kerry is coherent, although obnoxious. I guess he has been drafted into helping because of his step-son Heinz being involved in Ukraine. Maybe Kerry himself was even the recipient of some of the money.

henry @ 11:22,I know how they (Dems) will vote but I'm worried about the Senate RINOs,I have zero confidence in Susan Collins,she's probably clutching her pearls right now. There will be "no comment" from Senate Republicans,because they are the jury.

Hope Hicks, the former White House communications director, told agents about Trump’s annoyance with Flynn during a Dec. 8, 2017, interview. Investigators noted, “Trump told Hicks that Obama told him to watch out for Flynn” and “Hicks thought the comment sat with Trump more then she expected.” Trump “thought Flynn had bad judgment” and “it bothered Trump that both Flynn and his son sent bad tweets,” according to investigators.

TK @ 1:11

Is it your formal position that Hope Hicks did not say what she is quoted as saying in that Examiner article?

I am curious to know why you refer to that as moving the goalposts? Aren't opinions supposed to be on facts and information? If what Hope Hicks is quoted as having said is indeed true, doesn't that means your opinion should be updated to reflect that new information?

Buckeye

As much money as Pelosi has, I don't understand why she hasn't gotten dental implants.

She probably has crappy bones under those dentures. At some point, as you get older, bone grafts don't work and there just isn't anyway to get a structurally sound foundation. Particularly with women.

My perio guy pushed me to do the implant I didn't need quite yet at 50 because higher success prospect as compared to waiting.

Plus he had a Porsche payment due:)

Melinda

I'm sure it has nothing to do with her poppy seed habit.

MissMarple2

Buckeye,

I can't tell you how much I wish I had gotten dental implants back when I was covered by my ex-husband's dental insurance.

Then the lay-offs and closures hit the mining industry and he had to go work overseas.

Never did get them.

My son, who hadn't been to a dentist in 25 years has to go see a periodontist. When he finally went to the dentist last week, he only had one cavity (the dentist couldn't believe it) but his gums are in bad shape.

I told him to do whatever the guy said because he does NOT want dentures. He apparently inherited my dad's genes for strong teeth but unfortunately my weak gums.
