"TBH, my intuition is that Theo starts with a conclusion and argues back."

That shouldn't be a problem if the conclusions are right, right? But, seriously, isn't this how real business lawyers work: you tell them what you want to do, and they figure out how to defend it.

A longish review of climate forecast history... from SO2 climate cooling through CO2 warming (all from coal).

“The [natural] variability of climate from decade to decade is monstrous,” stated one leading scientist. “To say that we’ve seen the greenhouse signal is ridiculous.” Said another to Kerr: “Confidence in detection [of anthropogenic warming] is now down near zero.”

Given a certain presumption, that team Barr wasnt likely to get a DC court conviction of McCabe MIGHT there have been a concern over double jeopardy re leaking classified information?

i'm under the naive impression the USG is building a complex case against a cabal. prosecuting McCabe on a narrow charge in a single case might have jeopardized the wider attack against the cabal?

had he been charged and arraigned what would discovery have revealed (by inference?) about the government's wider case(s) against the cabal?

i think rather than characterizing Barr as having folded, perhaps at least one other way of looking at this is Barr executed a strategic withdrawal in order to redeploy to better ground.

btw, can't the executive branch petition for change of venue? especially in light of that rigged Stone jury.

I know that you are well read enough that you have read many leftist moral high horse rants that exactly parallel the one you let loose with here. You know the drill (you could write it better than I could) about how conservatives are racist, sexist scum being led by a bunch of greedy bastards who want to pile up great wealth for themselves by denying a decent living, housing, healthcare or whatever to the people. And who use the fake morality and false pie in the sky in the great hereafter of religion to keep the people under control. You sound in tone just like them.

My view remains that by and large the people on the left are just as decent and moral and well meaning as the folks on the right. We have different ideas about how to achieve and maintain a just society, but both sides for the most part want just that. Sure there are left wingers motivated by selfish considerations but that is true of some on the right as well. Conservatives are of course better looking but on the whole not better in terms of honesty or decency or morality.

Do you really think that the people you know in real life — relatives, friends, colleagues, cohorts, countrymen- whose views could be considered left of center are monsters who want to kill babies, destroy society, steal our wealth and enslave everyone ? Isn’t that just a bit over the top? I submit to you that the overwhelming percentage of liberals that I know and know about are well meaning people who want thins like affordable housing and decent healthcare for all Americans. Their plans to achieve these things are not well thought out or terribly realistic, but their hearts are in the right place.

For sure politics is downstream from culture. But culture is not very much amount morality either. Culture represents the informal ways we choose to interact with and accommodate one another. It is not a struggle between good and evil but competing visions of acceptable societal norms. The greatest cultural changes in our lifetime center on greater acceptance of individual sexual choices — homosexuality, pre marital sex, divorce, etc. I have no problem with such acceptance and in any event it has nothing to do with true “morality..”

You keep talking about progs or Democrats or whoever “celebrating” the “killing” of babies. It is over and over again the centerpiece of your claim to moral superiority. You pretend that this is separate from the abortion issue but of course it is not. Do you really know anyone who is such a monster that they actually “celebrate” killing babies? This does not describe anyone that I know and virtually no one that I know of. Passion runs deep on both sides of the abortion issue but the vast and overwhelming percentage of the people who are pro choice are not monsters and could not be described except by the most grotesque hyperbole of celebrating the killing of babies.

The odd duck in this conversation is the one who engages in such over the top characterization of people with different views on a policy issue, combined with the occasional vivid fantasy about killing people to achieve or maintain his vision of a righteous society. That is not me, my friend. But that’s okay, normal is overrated and your passion is admirable.

Again I submit that the cast majority of our friends, neighbors and countrymen are decent well meaning people. We can and should be able to disagree with them without demonizing them.

Who is the most decent and moral and well meaning Democrat in The House presently? Same question for The Senate.

Betting favorites for VP slot, in order: Stacey Abrams, Kamala, Klobuchar, E Warren, Mayor Pete, Hillary, Tulsi, Julian Castro, Cory Booker.

The shocker, though, is the Dem ticket betting favorite (at two different places), which is Sanders and his co-chairman Nina Turner, a black ex-State Senator from Ohio. After Sanders-Turner, the ticket favorites are Sanders-Warren, Bloomberg-Buttigieg, Sanders-Harris, Buttigieg-Harris, Biden-Harris and Buttigieg-Warren.

Absolutely. That is why I assumed that Theo would have had an answer inside of 5min. Not that I demand instant answers though; JOMers have other priorities in life.

I will be patient waiting for the answer. For example last December TomR was so concerned about answering a simple question about Nunes he promised to have a well composed response fashioned the next day after play time with his kid. I waited for 2 weeks, and a new year to begin, for Tom to come back from play time and respond.

Of course his response was that he now thought the question to be unimportant. Either way it put him in hiding for 2 weeks. 👍

The ONLY decent democrat my local friend and I could conjure up yesterday when talking on the phone was Evan Bayh. His wife, Susan, was diagnosed with a massive brain tumor a year or two ago and since he seems to have disappeared, we assume he is taking care of her.

We both thought that he would be welcomed by democrat voters with relief, given the rest of the crowd.

Not a word from him, which also could indicate he realizes how the electorate has changed here. He got defeated by points in the 2016 Senate election by Todd Young, even though Bayh had been both a governor and senator. That should tell you how strong Trump's coattails were in Indiana.

In addition, although he's a nice-looking guy and doesn't sound crazy, he's VERY liberal, as can be seen in the record Wikipedia discusses.(Supported the Partial Birth Abortion Act, for example.)

Did it ever occur to you that TomR may have fashioned (straight away, even cutting into the kids' play time) an answer so elegant, so compelling, that it's being published on its own now, and with a foreword by Rod Rosenstein? I think that theory explains the delay, unless you can disprove it.

There is one key difference. I'm right and they're wrong. If I didn't believe that then I would believe what they do but, they're wrong, so...

--Do you really think that the people you know in real life — relatives, friends, colleagues, cohorts, countrymen- whose views could be considered left of center are monsters who want to kill babies, destroy society, steal our wealth and enslave everyone ?

Their plans to achieve these things are not well thought out or terribly realistic, but their hearts are in the right place.--

So someone who believes in killing a third trimester, viable baby has his heart in the right place? Someone who believes a baby who survives an abortion should be left to die has their heart in the right place? Every single Democratic Senator, representing many, many millions of Americans is apparently okay with having their heart in that "right" place.
Stalinist Russia, Maoist China and Nazi Germany had many many millions of perfectly decent citizens who loved their families and would never think of kicking their dog. But they were the cogs who enabled the ideologues to exist and tyrannize their fellow citizens. The nature of the True Believer is to exist in a state of cognitive dissonance that can be tolerated because they inure themselves to the immoral and tyrannical regimes and ideas they support by fooling themselves they are more moral and reasonable than the innocent neighbor they're turning into the Stasi.

The left is not the right and the left is not like the right. Progressivism and conservatism are not equidistant mirror images of each other. The whole concept of a center that is flanked by equal ideas on the left and right out to corresponding extremes is a fraud and one exploited by leftists, as I've explained to you before. The political continuum stretches from the common venom sac of socialism/communism/fascism/Nazism/Islam and all the other collectivist political ideologies that seek to rule their fellow man, to the other side of those who seek to the greatest extent possible, self-rule, self-determination and self-governance. There is a fundamental moral difference between those two sides. And progressivism, regardless of whether its adherents know it is on the unfree side of the spectrum and invariably eventually leads to the other extreme isms that lurk there. The French Revolution and the American one demonstrate that historical distinction and truth better then anything else I can think of. And if you can't discern the moral distinction between the guillotine and the Liberty Bell, well...

I suddenly realize in the middle of writing this I have to stop myself from wasting any more of my time.

Arguing about mass movements and ideologies with a guy who explicitly refuses to educate himself with two of the best books on the subject and dismisses them without even reading them and who simultaneously seems to reject the concept of objective truth itself is a lost cause.
Either you truly are a concern troll or you are invincibly ignorant and enjoy being in that state.
In either case have a good day.

"My view remains that by and large the people on the left are just as decent and moral and well meaning as the folks on the right. "

Speaking for myself based on my experience of the Left's evolution in these United States making such a comparison of two monolithic groups is specious at best and a dangerous subterfuge out here where the rubber meets the road.

I've experienced financial ruin at the hands of moral and decent progressive-liberal-anarcho-radical-LGBTQ LEFTISTS.

And what it came down to was their BELIEF i was moral and decent like them, although i am not a white man, until i asserted myself on moral grounds: i will not lie for you people and spin a yarn for the media to cover up your duplicity and deceit over denying constitutional rights to people who are not part of your self-enrichment system inside your fiefdom.

Once i asserted a principled stand based on my constitutional duty as a free citizen i was subjected to a public persecution and smear that got me blacklisted and with loss of at least $1.5m in consulting contracts, plus university salary along with supports earned through educational achievements and specialized experience and training.

I wasn't a target of vengeful misguided individuals.

I was targeted by true believers in a secularized creed predicated on the best of intentions but with the aim of using lethal POLITICAL impacts on a perceived THREAT (me) to maintain conformity, even using covert acts of violence for good measure. It all ocurred in Bernie Sanders' Vermont 1991-1998.

Let's stick to specifics.

In the 80s the flow of government money wasnt being siphoned off to quite the same degree into "non-profits" as during the Clintonian hey day. But even in Bumfuck Illinois where i spent the 80s, the signs of the grand moral decency of the Left was showing signs of malignancies we see today.

“ jurors are under oath in voir dire and in filling out their questionnaires. Some have been prosecuted for perjury for hiding their biases by lying.”

In her case it seems more likely that she was truthful about factual matters, but lied about their not affecting her views of the case. That sort of lie seems impossible to prosecute.

This is all starting to seem more like “Chinatown,” but I still have confidence in Barr. At least I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt.

Man Tran:

Your experience with jigsaw puzzles reminds me of my own with drawing (and a lot of other things, actually). Every now and then I sign up for a life drawing class down at the local visual arts center. I'm not terribly good at it, because the human body is very complicated, and if you don't get everything just right, you know immediately that something is out of whack. You just don't know what it is. Did you make something too long, too short, etc.? Every change ricochets through the whole composition. Sometimes I just end up randomly erasing things and redrawing them just to see if that's where the problem lies. I'm often wrong.

What's frustrating is that if I look at the drawing a week or two later, I can see exactly where the mistake is immediately, "Jeez, that shoulder angle is all wrong."

Your brain is always working on something whether you know it or not, and it's amazing how often an answer for one thing will occur to you in the middle of thinking about something else completely.

Jimmy, she also said she had not followed the collusion case closely nor knew much about the stone case and her tweets show that to be false. While in most cases such a claim of being unbiased might be difficult to prove--it isn't here where among other things she asserted that DJT was a racist and all his supporters were, too.

That happens to me with crossword puzzles. I’ll be completely stalled, so I put it down. And later when I pick it up I immediately get at least one answer and can go on. I attribute it to fatigue from a focus on one activity. Doing something else for a while sort of resets the brain, and you can get a fresh start when you return to the first activity. That’s just my own interpretation though. For me at makes everything a tradeoff: Focusing intently on one thing is productive, but only to a point. Then I turn to JOM. :)

Cambridge Academic Says Human Race Must Become Extinct To Save The Planet

“Hats off to Morticia for cutting to the chase,” writes Dave Blount. “Worship of the other, hatred for your kind is at the core of liberal ideology. This has inevitably led to support for open boarders, Affirmative Action, anti-Americanism, et cetera. It leads to wanting humanity exterminated just as inevitably. A liberal who doesn’t want the human race to die out has not thought matters through.”

Yes, I had to shut it down this morning and pick it back up, (kind of like when a sudoku puzzle becomes hard to stay focused on). The timeline Sundance lays out re: the period between Comey's firing and Mueller's appointment seems to back up suspicions that Mueller was offered the SC position days before the phony FBI Director "interview."

boris

I think MJW's last question on the last thread is an interesting one:

DOJ simply folded, almost certainly because the odds of getting a conviction did not justify the effort.

... Suppose a liberal politician and a conservative politician committed the same offense in Washington DC. Conventional wisdom says a DC jury is considerably more likely to convict the conservative -- and I think conventional wisdom is correct. Does that mean the conservative should be charged, but not the liberal?

Great example of Disparate Impact people. Seems like prima facie justification for any politically tainted trials to be held elsewhere.

Jimmy, there's what I call "prissy law", an explanation of why judges punish most severely those who mislead the court, for example. I do not see how Tomeka can get off, the judges have to wrap their robes tightly and act in the face of this IMO. And I bet if she's charged, the judge overseeing the trial will do a far more thorough job of vetting jurors. They simply cannot get away with looking the other way at such conduct.Of course, that just my opinion--the DC court might not mind having lots of expensive mistrials.

I try to id Sundance links for those who don't like him. Personally, I appreciate his willingness and ability to get into the details, but he still has a tendency to leap to conclusions. In today's piece, for example, he claims that Rosenstein authorized Mueller to go after Flynn Jr. as if that's a known fact. Immediately following that, he reiterates that we haven't been allowed to see the scope memos and then posts an image of the redacted IG report where Flynn Jr's name is presumably behind one of the redactions.

The most commonly stolen book at the San Francisco Public Library may surprise you

In liberal San Francisco, you might think sticky fingers at the public library would pull Barack Obama's "The Audacity of Hope" off the shelves.

Nope.

The books that mostly commonly go missing — and are assumed to be stolen — at the San Francisco Public Library are written by a conservative radio host who was among the first to endorse Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

"The one author our head of collections has to check regularly and purchase new copies of our books by Michael Savage," library spokesperson Kate Patterson wrote in an email. "We check once a year to see if all the copies are gone and reorder. We have moved to e-book for most of them, so we can ensure copies are around. The main title that disappears quickly is 'Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder.'"

Marlene--- i had MANY interactions with Bernie and his comrades. Bernie was in and out of town alot. his appearances around town and gown activities during that time were few but the Progressive Party agenda on health care, housing, policing and security, cultural affairs, formation of the city human rights council was his run by a few of his old guard who got him elected mayor then to congress.

Bernie is a bore, rather uncouth and unkempt. his current clipped version is new. i've made mention before of his halitosis. it's bad. and he insists on being a thumbs length away fr my face when bludgeoning the conversation about "social justice" with his take on what it's like to be "a puhsun of culla" and what "your real needs are." (Thank you Kimo Sabe.)

wear a raincoat too because Bernie has a spray problem. avoid eating at his table lest you have to see everything sloshing around in his mouth while he chows. eww.

The University was top-shelf back then. i had the run of the place on both the academic and student affairs sides of the house. being that my job also entailed conflict resolution duties between minority students and the President and college deans i had input on academic policy and institutional advancement. overall students received a quality education there if they were serious about their prospects. the work i loved the best was admissions support and student retention--- the people business aspect of the university.

Bernie's plants were everywhere. my sources there tell me it's only gotten worse. interestingly enough the University research community brings in a lot of genetics and biotech money, broad industries creating millionaires and billionaires, anathema to the Bernie Bot personae. that crew will stomp its feet until they get some cash for their own "woke" pieces of that tainted pie.

Bernie learned a lot fr Jesse Jackson.

Thanks for your response,KK. Vermont was the first state to suffer from the invasion the progressives. NH and Maine aren't far behind.

Nothing will happen to the Stone juror.

But I read that if played right, Stone has a pretty good argument for a new trial.

The juror lying in voir dire and removing the ability to remove her for cause created a structural issue in that Stone only had eleven impartial jurors.

Someone mentioned getting a text from Bloomberg.
Here's mine from earlier today:

Hi! I'm James from Mike Bloomberg's campaign. With so much at stake, Americans deserve a Democratic candidate who can beat Donald Trump. Will you support Mike?

Answer: "Don't know how you got my number. I agree much is at stake...therefore I will enthusiastically support our President, Donald J. Trump for 4 more years! MAGA (followed by 8 American flags!)

So does Sam Donaldson have to go into his terrible toop guy every week and get another dead squirrel to lay atop his noggin that is just a bit more white than the one the week before?

I met a couple conservatives in Santa Cruz including the South Korean neighbor of my daughter, who loves Trump. There's even a campaign going on to recall two loon town council critters who care more about the homeless bums than productive citizens. I don't know if it will work but I saw quite a few signs.

’s policies have kicked America’s economic engine into high gear:

Last month marked the 23rd consecutive month that unemployment has been at or below 4%.

✅ 7M+ jobs have been created
✅ Record-breaking stock market
✅ 2.4M lifted out of poverty

No inbound political texts... so I can’t respond ”Candidates must be at least 5’10” without a box or lift shoes. Sorry.”

While Democrats have tried to obstruct at every turn, @realDonaldTrump
has nominated, and the Senate has confirmed 192 Article III judges.

In doing so, he has flipped 3 federal appeals courts.

POTUS is keeping his promise to appoint rule of law judges!

Prior to @realDonaldTrump’s administration, black unemployment had never dipped below 7%.

It’s been below that for 2 years and wages for black Americans are rising!

This Washington Post piece on Mike Bloomberg's treatment of women is absolutely horrifying.

Bloomberg's been smart to run his campaign where other candidates aren't focused on him, because this stuff is beyond toxic.

Just imagine what else is out there.

Jimmy,

There is probably enough pressure on her to declare a mistrial, but I sure a hell don't trust her.
