For Christmas I want to know what Doug Collins knew and when he knew it.

From the tail-end of the last thread:

https://nypost.com/2019/12/11/ig-report-shows-russia-hoax-a-coup-attempt-devine/

"It took five hours of questioning about the FBI’s motivations, but Horowitz, prudent and impartial as he is, finally delivered the money shot.

Asked by Republican Sen. Mike Crapo if the 17 “significant errors or omissions” he found in the FBI’s surveillance operation could possibly be “accidental,” Horowitz said: “I would be skeptical.” "

Hannity tweeted the picture with a link to the article. I would like to see some press members ejected from the Capitol.

I put the link up on the previous thread but remember the revolution is coming in through the local level and in the name of 'the children' and racial equity" as a legal mandate.

StriveTogether has been on this journey since we became a national network. The roadmap has never been straight and the work has never been easy, but equity has been at the heart of our work from the beginning. We know we must be vigilant and relentless in continuing our parallel internal work to ensure we are truly advancing racial and ethnic equity within our organization and within ourselves. As a network of nearly 70 communities committed to a racially equitable and just world for every child, we believe our specific work positions us to be effective and impactful. Change is possible when we work together for youth and families.

From your Jarrett link, MM:


Rep Gaetz stated, “Before I make my point, during the break, a Reuters photographer, Josh Roberts, approached the dais and took pictures of the notes [on] the desks of several of my Democratic colleagues. We noticed that, announced it to staff. That photographer has been removed. I would just say, no member, Republican or Democrat, should be subject to that.”

Thank you. Armed with that info I wouldn't have gotten so worked up. I missed where this must have been highlighted prior to the 5-not-1 link that prompted me to ask for proactivity amongst JOM twitter users.

4 years ago, Everyone Smart knew that Brexit was going to lose at the polls bigly. 4 years ago, they were all wrong.

4 years ago, Everyone Smart knew that Hillary Clinton was going to be the next President of the United States. 4 years ago, they were all wrong.

Since then, British media and their Smart Set have been demonizing everyone in favor of Brexit, and loudly proclaiming that it was a fluke and not fair, and that it didn't mean what it clearly meant, and that if the vote was held again, then people would vote a different way, and have done everything in their power to prevent it from happening.

Since then, the US media and their Smart Set have demonized all of Trump supporters, loudly proclaiming that he didn't win the election fairly, that he's a terrible person and trying to deligitimize the election, and get him thrown out of office by any means necessary.

Last night, Brexit won at the polls again.

So... I'm sort of looking forward to November.

CH- At great risk of stinkin' up the thread again, this may or may not have been willowed:

I was wondering where the hell the WSJ got it's "Boris wins with a comfortable majority" carp and it totally explains the Malarkey like this:

Dan Alpert
@DanielAlpert
Non-representative Democracy:
The UK and US have similar problems. We have presidents elected here with a minority of the popular vote and a Senate led by senators collectively elected by tiny minority of the American people. Yesterday, the majority of voters opposed #Brexit...
...and, yet, the Conservative party - promising to get #Brexit done - prevailed by a wide margin. Count up the votes for Labour, Lib Dem, SNP, Greens, Alliance, SF, SDLP, and Independents. Assume 95% were solid remain votes given defections to the Tories.
theguardian.com/politics/ng-in…

The answer is clear - there were more voters supporting candidates vowing to support remaining in the #EuropeanUnion than the other way round. A proxy for what would have happened in a 2nd referendum. Yet the other way round will now prevail. Johnson: "a victory for democracy" ?

Not a day passes that I regret letting my wsj subscription, which I'd had since the mid 70s, lapse in 2010. When Rupert bought it a lot of people said "welp that's it for that paper" about which I was skeptical of someone screwing up a cash cow. I was very wrong.

"Jo Swindon, the leader of the LibDems in the UK, lost her MP race to a SNP candidate and in her news conference blamed it on racism."

The Infamous Ignatz

Heh.

Captain Hate

FWIW, Mr Porch thinks young Hillary was a total fox.

There were times in the White House, before the excessive drinking added very large numbers of empty calories, that I thought the taxpayers subsidized skilled professionals to make her look presentable. But there's NFW those upside down bowling pins were ever attractive.

The Infamous Ignatz

I think that's a function of the flash lighting too Porch. The shadows under her cheekbones look the same.
She might have had something done under her eyes but even that is hard to tell.
The range in looks of people in photos is sometimes hard to believe. Just compare the main pic of people at dating sites with the rest. "Wow! She's hot....ohhh. Never mind."

As for Hillary being a total fox, I'm sure she asked her mirror every day who was the fairest in all the land. After that apple didn't quite do the trick, she decided to hire professionals from then on.
