anonamom,

I would prefer not to discuss religion here.

I will consider what you said, but please do not bring it up anymore.

Threadkiller

I do believe Alexander Hamilton wouldn't have met that criteria, and he sure seems like a pretty committed American to me.

You would be incorrect.

Although The Founding Fathers had more on their Merit Badge sashes than Nikki Haley they still didn't think that was enough to waltz into the oval office just off the cheers of the less knowledgable. They knew a supreme law was necessary.

Even with all they accomplished they still carved out specific language to exempt them from the eligibility requirements. They wrote the carve out because their blood was British blood at birth.

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident ..

They intended to be the only Presidents that came into the world without a sole allegiance to the USA. Their successful Revolution bestowed upon them the right to such a loophole.

Afterwards everyone was to be of unencumbered allegiance. And all Presidents since then, save two, met that fundamental requirement. One was Chestur Arthur, who burned his family records to hide his ineligibility and the other was Obama, who was selected after countless attempts to change the Constitution and finally, through a senate committee hearing with Orin Hatch and Dick Durban, it became clear that they could fight off the Constitutionalists with slurs and shouting.

If Haley has the moxy you attribute to her, she should welcome judicial review of her birth circumstances, not denounce lazy keyboard warriors.

Threadkiller

Clarification: You are incorrect about the criteria surrounding his eligibility. You are correct about his commitment to America.

Ruh roh! News we can use.
Misgendering by using the wrong pronouns is now a crime??!!

Uhhh...have you read to the end of the Book?

LOL

KevlarKid

Why, Jack? i'm so glad to hear from you. did your handler give you permission to engage? your last showing was such a drunken embarassment; then radio silence. so glad you're sharing the Christmas spirit. what did you ask Big Nicky for this season (besides another "shot?")

Bye, Jack.

Marlene

AB,the break was just above her left knee replacement. She had ORIF surgery. My sister saw the x-ray,she said Mom's leg is full of hardware. Two plates with screws, a rod and comb-like hardware,I assume to anchor the bone. Our concern is her commitment to rehab,because of her stubbornness. I doubt she will regain full mobility. I will very likely be making a trip up to NH after the New Year.

anonamom

jane 10-10 at the half.
Bills scored in the last few seconds.
Looks really, really cold there.

KevlarKid

too much "Shen Yun" advertising and robo calls, Iggy?

Jane

Geez MM, Amom can bring up anything she wants. You don't have to answer her.

Jane

Heard it AMom, which is not as good as seeing it, but still...

President Trump Delivers Remarks at Turning Point USA Student Action Summit

MissMarple2

Jane,

I sure didn't mean to be rude. I was explaining why I wasn't answering.

I didn't realize that would be taken as rude. I will just not answer from now on, if that seems best to you.

Jane

MM,

You can do whatever you want. You put everything out there, so don’t be surprised if people respond.

This is a Facebook story that has gone viral. What a sweet and caring boy!

GUS

Miss M, I know how passionate and how hurt you've been at the reign of Pope Che. I am a devout Catholic. We will survive this. As for Anonamom, there is no more class a JOMer than her. I'm sure she means no offense. Jane, thank you for your kind referreeing.
God bless all of you

Jane

Anyone thought about why Obama would start spying on Trump long before he got the nomination. My theory has always been that the deep state was worried about a guy who owed nothing to the swamp. But it seems odd they would be that worried then. When did he get the nomination?

MissMarple2

This is a thread detailing Strozk-Oage texts which mostly haven't been seen:

MissMarple2

Ack! I meant Page!

Captain Hate

I can't find the comment by Miss Marple that a-mom responded to. I figured it was on the last thread after I quoted, or paraphrased, the Peronist Pope but saw nothing.

anonamom

jane--Pats went for two and got it--24-17 with 5 minutes left.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

Let's just drop it. I am not going to say anything more about the Pope. I am going to have to figure out what to do, and this is no one's problem but mine.

KevlarKid

will back the Pats in AFC runup because of Bay Area phenom Julian Edelman. his documentary "100%" on Showtime is a must see for any football fan. he's salt.

A Pats-Niners SB would be cool with me but LeMar may have something to say about it.

MissMarple2

Here is a link to the full speech by President Trump on Periscope:

Year 3 of the boycott is still in place. No idiot refs to complain about nor dumbass rules.

Serenity now!

KevlarKid

i just want you to be happy, Captain Hate.

Another Bob

Thanks Marlene, doesn’t sound like a rod/nail procedure. Must have went well if they released her this quickly.

Make damn sure the rehab place changes the dressings daily.

KevlarKid

i boycott the announcers.

Jim Eagle

As usual, KK is full of himself. The king of what is east of the sewer call San Franciso. Full of his usual vomitous crap. Glad you can still type full sentances.

I don't need to kill file you since you are my morning, afternoon and evening comic entertianment.

Drunk? I wish I was, so I wouldn't have to read your crap.

KevlarKid

Oh, Jack. Let's diagram your second sentence shall we? Is that a full sentence? It certainly is not complete.

It's after 4pm out east, Jack. You're ploughed. (Nile delta anyone?)

Living life looking through one's rear view mirror, hanging with knobs--- you're the entertainment, Buddy.

who uses the word "vomitous" anyway?

That speech at Turning Point USA is great.

I have it on to re-listen, it's great!

I care more what people believe than where they re from.

Dear God, who designed that drop cloth.

Iggy, I agree. I don't understand the acrimony that surfaces here every now and again.

Jane

What a game!

sbwaters

Clarice, ifyou are on a Mac, it is likely click the Apple on the upper left and select system preferences. Then select the Mouse icon.

Not sure what options you will find. Of course you always have Command C, Command V.

Thanks, sbw --My son set up one to operate very automatically on one of these but it only works on my air mac and I'm trying it out on my home computer. I'll try that.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

The acrimony is, sometimes, sudden and inexplicable.
Merry Christmas all!

Well some folks cant get over macho grande, turning this into an airing of grievances, you would think recent experiences would temper such sentiments.

KevlarKid

Inexplicable. LOL

GUS

Narciso, it's like FESTIVUS.

Narciso

Thats why i referenced it this way. We lost more than a few friends this year, daddy frau pagar, it should make up let some minor fracas be elided.

Ben Carson
@SecretaryCarson

I believe God's providence was very much part of him becoming our Commander-in-Chief, and he understands the importance of making sure our Judeo-Christian values remain the core component of our country's foundation.

Men and women of faith should be praying for our President @realDonaldTrump, not casting stones.

GUS

Narciso, I have toned down my act. Very few Jom'ers, have mal-intent.

This is the first part of Ben Carson's thread:

Ben Carson
@SecretaryCarson

I know @realDonaldTrump. He is a good, caring man, and someone that puts our country's trust in God. He understands the rights of every American come from our Creator.

Narciso

Red queen must be doubling up on the coronas.

Thank you, GUS

GUS

Rodham is out of touch with reality.

Narciso

Its a bug with this party.

GUS

JimNorCal, you are a major reason that I've mellowed. You are a good man and a good friend.

GUS

Henry's brother knows Ben Carson as well as anyone with a pen or microphone.
To assert in any way that Dr Carson, is not a extremely intelligent and eminently qualified public servant is ABSURD.

Narciso

Of course you know the skill and discipline it takes to be a brain surgeon, and how his reliance on the Word gave him the will to make it from trying curcumstances.

D

A friend once gave me some good advice.
She said look at each interaction with others and ask yourself “Was I my best self in that exchange?”
I probably sound like Pollyanna, but I try especially at this time of year to look for the good in people. I try to put myself in their shoes and compliment the good hard work they are doing.
After reading most of yesterday’s posts I thought about taking a hiatus from the blog.
Fortunately my real life intervened and I decided to lurk today to see if things had improved. Sadly I was disappointed again.
I will check in tomorrow with hope in my heart that the Christmas spirit has returned.

Narciso


No good deed, goes unpunished:

Heading to bed. I will try to be a more conciliatory poster tomorrow.

I apologize to anonamom and to anyone else I offended.

Good night, everyone!

Yes its fully weaponized autococumbers.

Marlene, my 94 YO MIL broke her hip (high femur) Oct 8, 2018. Had a rod inserted. Set a goal to return home. Went to rehab, worked hard and got to return to her condo by Dec 24, 2018. She needed daily assistance which was met by her 3 surviving daughters and assisted living. Once home she sat in her recliner, did nothing to continue with her physical therapy. Died Apr 30, 2019 in her home. It’s was a good death.

I believe that a broken hip/femur/other significant medical issue sets the clock running. I hope this is not the case for your mother.

GUS

Good night Miss M. You are awesome. I don't believe you offended anyone.
God bless you.

Robin, eff 'em all

Mary Rose at 9:14 - love that. Bringing our best selves always.

Amom - I'd say that Nikki Haley has figured out the legal hoops re eligibility already. She strikes me as capable.

As long as we're discussing eligibility, wouldn't it be awesome if somewhere in that treasure trove of emails we found documentation about the executive order protecting Obama's past records? Maybe there is some opposition research that never saw the light of day....

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

It's always the people who don't cause a problem who end up apologizing. :/

Anyway, can't recommend narc's Caroline Glick column at 9:05 highly enough.
She expertly clarifies the issues, parties and stakes in Israel and prescribes the path to victory for Netanyahu over the globalist, socialist, lawfare slime that lurk everywhere.

Narciso

Powerline had it in their selection, carolyn is not an unqalified endorser of netanyahu but knows the staked

From that Polka Dot Tent Hillary link;

Hillary Clinton praised Pelosi’s sham impeachment hoax against President Trump this week during a “Gutsy Women” book tour stop with Chelsea.

Yeah, "gutsy" women are the very ones who tend to wear polka dot tents.

As an aside, while the video was not top notch quality I note her face did not seem to be sporting that gruesome new altered visage those other pics indicated.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I saw it at PL as well.

Also at PL, Mirengoff takes Yuval Levin to task for a typically imbecilic truckload of silage on impeachment at NRO.

He still has to smudge his toga though.

Interesting Jim, I always wondered about the California cancer warnings you see on nearly everything. Was unaware they did their own epidemiology. Or is it finding someone else’s study they happen to like?

WHO has declared, without evidence, that glyphosate is a possible carcinogen.

I forget the exact circumstances, but WHO commissioned a survey of existing literature. The man doing that was ready to publish a paper showing that it was not a carcinogen, but WHO ignored that paper which had yet to be published and went with the consensus of the existing literature.

I may have some part of that wrong, but that's the general idea.

jim nj

Most of these product lawsuits are based on shoddy science. I presume in California that lawyers have some influence over the branding criteria. Get the state to call it a possible carcinogen and it's easier to file a lawsuit and use the state designation to preen in front of the jury.

If memory serves me correctly, the EU, influenced by the WHO, is considering a ban and the European farmers are throwing a fit about it.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I think you have that backwards, jim.
Roundup has been studied six ways from Sunday and the WHO always accepted the results of those studies that showed it is pretty much harmless.
Some goon did a biased, poorly conducted study that showed a tenuous link. It was critiqued so heavily he had to retract or correct it but the WHO dumped the real science in favor of this tenuous stuff to justify the stupid coming ban and at the same time stuck Bayer/Monsanto with a massive unjustified liability.
