Mm,

What channel is the rally on? And how many things can I watch at once?

Comanche Voter

Schiff has kind of covered himself in Schiff today. It's not a pretty sight.

But folks need to understand that, going back to at least 2010, Nancy Pelosi has thought of Schiff as her "best and brightest". When the Dems were contemplating a "town hall strategy" during the summer Congressional recess before ultimate passage of Obamacare, Schiff was sent out to try a town hall in his district. I attended that town hall. Schiff had lots of support---the SEIU had bussed in a crowd from all over Los Angeles. There were preprinted signs and banners. Schiff had lots of "experts" up on the stage with him. OTOH, there were lots of Tea Party folks in the audience.

Bottom line? Schiff couldn't pull it off. Pelosi figured that if Schiff couldn't get it done at a town hall, no one could get it done. They abandoned the town hall strategy.

Is history repeating itsef? The Schiffster, who couldn't get it done at an Obamacare town hall--might well be the pencil necked geek who couldn't shove impeachment over the line! Sorry Nancy.

From CH's ace link;

"A friend says: "Well, maybe Rick Wilson will succeed in getting a Republican elected once in his incompetent life!"" referring to the Don Le-moan escapade.

My first thought on reading that Trump voters have higher verbal ability, AKA are smarter, than Clinton voters is does anyone doubt the first thing a prog thinks reading that is this;

it's all those people of color and Mexicans that make us dumber.

And then they call us racists again to atone for their moral failings.

Do we know what time questioning will end tonight? I heard on the radio that Lamar Alexander will "decide" and announce his intention to vote for or against witnesses at the end of tonight's questioning. It was stated that this would be a good indication of how the votes would go.

News: ,u daughter's large corporation wanted them to make sure they had their computers in good condition in case they had to work from hom due to the coronavirus. She stoppe by and had hers checked on her way home from work.

And this evening she ordered cases of canned goods from Aldi's to be delivered in case we needed stuff to eat and couldn't leave the house.

This is the type of thing that happens when you cannot believe the media and the government sends mixed messages.

ENRDV

Dr. J, I only get to read JOM in fits and starts, so I don't know if anyone gave you suggestions about music streaming services that have good classical suggestions. In case they didn't, I copied an editorial from The Absolute Sound (February 2020 issue) about what's going on in that world, planning to paste it here. But that didn't work. Bottom line, Tidal and Qobuz offer a lot of CD-level and higher quality streaming music, and Amazon has said that it will start doing the same. Apple Music and Spotify have so far stuck with the less good "lossy" formats. Hope this helps.

ENRDRV,

I have read The Absolute Sound on streaming, and many others have become excited by Idagio. I wondered if anyone had any experience with them.

FWIW, I don't think much of The Absolute Sound, particularly after Pearson gave up magazine control. I'm too much of an engineer to trust anything they say, since they too often just get basic things wrong.

Unfortunately it seems that one needs a manager to deal with the awful streaming interfaces, with Roon being the most popular. It does other things too, but I have other means to deal with that.

Once I get things settled down here (don't ask) I'll give some of these a try. I'm not quite ready for that yet.

In Austin, John Bolton voices support for officials called in impeachment hearing | KXAN.com

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Speaking at a private event in Austin Thursday, Former National Security Advisor John Bolton defended government officials who testified in front of the U.S. House impeachment inquiry.

The United States Senate could soon decide whether to call Bolton to testify himself in the President’s impeachment trial.

Sources tell KXAN Bolton defended former diplomatic and state department officials Fiona Hill, Tim Morrison, Alex Vindman, Bill Taylor, and Marie Yovanovitch.

“All of them acted in the best interest of the country as they saw it and consistent to what they thought our policies were,” said Bolton, during the question-and-answer time after his keynote speech.

He went on to say members of the Trump Administration should “feel they’re able to speak their minds without retribution.”

“The idea that somehow testifying to what you think is true is destructive to the system of government we have — I think, is very nearly the reverse — the exact reverse of the truth,” said Bolton.

It sounds like the Republican Senators have determined that Senator Collins has the most to lose by opposing more witnesses and documents. She gets the opportunity to vote for additional witness testimony thereby appeasing her constituents. If Senator McConnell can hold the remaining Republican Senators together, then I'm okay with this deal.

The democrats seem to have played their last card. Outside of John Bolton running screaming into the Senate Chambers demanding to be heard, I'd say this charade is over.

This evening I've been listening to Stephen Kovacevich playing some of Beethoven's middle sonatas, starting with #18.

Very interesting sound -- I have many of his CDs, but have not listened to them for a long time. Light touch, technically proficient, and he gets the musical core right. He is great at bringing out Beethoven's humor when it is there.

Currently he is on Waldstein -- one of my favorites -- and while I don't think he will displace Gilels as my favorite, he is darned good.

If true, he’s a two-faced scumbag.

Alexander is trash, just like Corker was. The Tennessee GOP must be a big Gas Chamber clown show unresponsive to the state voters who overwhelmingly voted MAGA in 2016.

There was another treacherous weasel in that play.

Barbara

Romney's vote for more witnesses is pure pettiness. In his question posted by MomTo2 above, he asks if there is any evidence to show that President Trump directed anyone to tell the Ukrainians that security assistance was being held on condition of an investigation into the Bidens.

I don't recall the House Managers putting this particular spin on the matter, nor have they entered any evidence to that effect. So where is this coming from?

There is the possibility that this is what John Bolton will claim, but given his open disagreements with the President, the history of his contrary nature while at the White House and his ultimate termination, his testimony at this point should have little weight.
