McConnell: ‘Workers Don’t Need Washington to Inflict Some Far-Left Extreme Makeover on the Country’

He makes some great points.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--And here I thought that neologisming was anathema to you.--

Well, first, you forgot the ethos [and slogan] by which I live, comport myself and judge others; "It's funny when I do it". :)

Second, it is not neologisms per se that are anathema.
It is the verbalizing of nouns [especially the fashionable verbalizations among the smart set] that tasks me with being ogred.

Captain Hate: I haven't followed the discussion about Flynn's legal bills -- have just seen a couple of your comments -- and think you're through with the subject :) -- but in Flynn's pleading to change his guilty plea to not guilty, if I'm remembering correctly, he says he owes the Covington firm over $3 million, and he's sold his house to help pay his legal bills.

So, it is stated clearly that he owes money.

If I haven't picked up the subject correctly, I apologize (I only read 50%, or putting it another way, think I'm only seeing your comments.)

--house-democrats-unveil-3-trillion-relief-bill--

This is like the minimum wage; if they really believe what they claim why make it $15 an hour when $150 would be so much more better?

Why an arbitrary $3 trillion when $30 trillion would make us all rich enough to buy $24,000 fridges for our precious ice cream? And for another paltry trillion on top they could all be outfitted with perches for our fleets of flying monkeys.

MM,

Fauci is not CDC but rather a branch of NIH that gets to raise their flag and mug on TV every 4 years. And he is the biggest Eeyorian fear-monger out there. What I don't understand is why the Commissioned Corps of the US Public Health Service are on the sidelines and they let little Tony Fauci take the spotlight? I think the USPHS is 6K Officers (MD's, RN's PA's DDS, etc.) strong and this CoVid19 should be in their wheelhouse.

Tom R

Why you insist on painting it in some noble light is beyond me except that it's too hard to just admit you were wrong about the creep.

It's called trying to be honest and objective i.e. anti-Sundance when presented with new information that goes against a pre-conceived notion.

I have made it clear I think Comey is either insane with guilt knowing his corruption is about to be exposed OR he is a master of kabuki. My current position is the jury is still out which one is correct and there are logical explanations for both cases.

Moreover he certainly knew how corrupt they were when he was setting Flynn up and setting Trump up for an SC.

I agree with you on this. IMO the event which caused Comey to learn how many of his senior leaders were corrupt is how they intentionally mishandled the Hillary email server investigation.

Sidenote: one of the most ironic twists of events is that Horowitz was originally directed by AG Lynch to investigate how the FBI mishandled the Hillary email server case. This was the first signal that when Hillary got elected Comey was going to be her first victim for how he "mishandled" her case. In other words, in their attempt to frame Comey to justify Hillary firing him, Obama/Lynch set the stage for all the stuff that happened later that exposed their corruption.

I agree with you after the election there is no doubt Comey knows how corrupt McCabe, Strzok and others are. Keep in mind in mid-November it is widely believed ADM Rogers informed Trump that Obama had been spying on him. During the transition period Comey knows at some point Team Trump is going to have access to all the evidence to the crimes of the Obama administration. He has a choice at that point to either side with the Obama criminal cabal OR to spill the beans to Trump and explain to him everything the DOJ/FBI did.

IMO at this juncture anyone who is interested in saving their own skin is likely going to side with Trump.

No one knows what Comey told Trump in the multiple meetings they had prior to Comey getting fired. Remember Trump's tweet where he warned Comey there might be tapes of their meetings? I think that was a clear signal to the Deep State/Swamp that Comey spilled the beans to Trump to include the information that the White House was bugged. If it wasn't Comey who informed Trump the WH was bugged then I don't know who else would possess that significant knowledge.

Judge denies Michigan's request to shut down 77-year-old barber who opened shop in defiance of Democratic Gov. Whitmer's COVID-19 order

Manke's barbershop in Owosso has been open since last Monday, and the 77-year-old got a packed lobby of customers the first morning, two citations before Friday — as well as a promise from Michigan Militia members that they won't let police arrest him.

"We're willing to stand in front of that door and block the entrance so the police will have no entry there today," Daniel Brewer told WEYI-TV Saturday.

...

During a triumphant press conference in front of his shop late Monday afternoon, Manke told a crowd of supporters that "I'm gonna stay open 'til Jesus comes."

...

"I feel the governor is not my mother, never has been," Manke said, according to the paper. "As a matter of fact, this administration, for the most part, I've been in business longer than they've been alive."

They're not gonna get away with another lockdown next year.

The Blue Angels are going to fly almost over my house in half an hour!

Two of the hospitals are on the South Side so they are doing a modified figure-8 path starting over the intersection of I-65 and I-74 on the southeast side, flying across downtown to the west side, looping back and flying south over I-465, then northeast backtracking over downtown again, straight north to I-465 on the north, then straight south over the east side, then due west towards the airport.

It's supposed to last from 2:00 until 2:11. I am going to try to take a couple of pictures.

Ignatz:

"It is the verbalizing of nouns..."

Hence my use of neologism-ing. Admittedly, that happens to be one word which should not exist, but in general verbalizations of nouns (something of a terminological abuse, itself) are words that should, and in all likelihood will, eventually find their way into the official lexicon. There's a good reason that turning nouns into verbs is even technically possible in English; it's part of what makes our native tongue one of the most flexible languages evah.

Just for fun, I contemplated turning verbalizing into a noun above as in "verbalizings." But never mind. Just think about what goes into phrases like governments disappearing undesirables...

Do you think the rabbi who wrote that oped is in the majority or minority when it comes to the beliefs of the Jewish rabbi community?

Robin:

"So I have a question, if you live in a state like NY that has actively discouraged the use of HCQ and you develop symptoms of the Coronavirus, can you ask your doctor to prescribe the HCQ cocktail and if they refuse sue them?"

If HCQ has not, in fact, been approved for that use by the FDA, I think your suit would run into trouble pretty quickly. Off-label usage is apparently not illegal, but I think it would be tricky to assert that a doctor could be compelled to write such a prescription.

I think this is where you paint yourself in a corner by refusing to consider an alternative. Trump was only one man who couldn't even count on his own party to support him. In two years Ryan had tanked the House into donk control and subsequent impeachment. The Senate contains a lot of Richard Burrs who still obsess over Russian collusion.

I think Trump has prevailed against those traitors even as he's fighting the China bought whores throughout the derp state. But a lesser man would have been broken by it. And there was no way to know how things would shake out at the time.

That is the Sundance approach. IMO wrong to outright dismiss the possibility when there is evidence supporting the conclusion.

The evidence from most of his career is of a self absorbed, self regarding, intensely ambitious and self promoting oddball.

OK if I stipulate your take on Comey's character is 100% accurate how does it conflict with the theory Comey spilled the beans to Trump and plead for mercy to save his own skin?

IDK. That's what I'm trying to determine. I thought kabuki meant a White hat pretending to be black.
At what point did your theory of white hat Comey working for Trump change to crooked Comey pleading with Trump for mercy to save his skin?
Perhaps I misunderstood your position when I criticized you for limiting the possible scenarios. Perhaps you actually subscribe to an unlimited number of them in which case whatever happens will confirm your suspicions.
Whatever the case I'm content to let things play out to see where the truth lies. In the meantime I'll just note what is observable and leave the speculatin to others.

Ig-

I take a slightly different approach to my proven stupidity, seeing as I have photographic proof I can fit 2 size 12s in my mouth at the same time, or so the spouse tells me.

In regards to Flynn and the DJT led counter-insurgency, there is NO way I am privy to the same information that they possess. BUT, the "Powers-that-be" have dropped a few breadcrumbs along the way that indicate where they're going was not unpossible, the money laundering convictions to date are broad and obscure enough that they can't be random, but have commonality in their methods of transmission. They all lead through the same, as yet, unlit doors. So does all that missing "Aid" sent to Ukraine.

So that's not to say that I'm stupid enough to believe everything coming down the pipe, just that my "Coincidence!" meter's peg keeps getting bent when I look down the path the COIN has traveled so far.

We will see, but I have very high hopes, because it seems I'm no longer climbing that hill, but starting to go down it.

CH @ 2:18

I agree with your characterization of Swamp RINOs in Congress. Based on the evidence available to the public, the difference between NeverTrumper RINOs in Congress and Comey is they weren't involved in the spying on Trump nor the coup attempt by the DOJ/FBI.

I am factoring into my conclusion Comey's past opposition to warrantless surveillance during the Ashcroft bedside event. To his credit Comey was willing to take a principled stand in support of the Constitution and oppose the neocons back then. I think it's possible that after 15 years of the Deep State Swamp abusing the Patriot Act warrantless surveillance program everything he warned would happen by reauthorizing that program ended up happening. If there was one ounce of patriotism left in Comey I can see him siding with Trump to try and put an end to the illegal spying he had taken a stance against 15 year earlier.

When I use the term "kabuki" I am referring to deception. Trump has been using it routinely ever since he took office.

At what point did your theory of white hat Comey working for Trump change to crooked Comey pleading with Trump for mercy to save his skin?

I made the point here a long time ago that Comey's post firing anti-Trump comments were either kabuki or a sign of insanity on his part because he knew his corruption was going to get exposed. I don't recall ever taking the definitive stance Comey was a White Hat and ruling out he was corrupt and part of the Obama criminal cabal. I've always considered that a distinct possibility.

Here lately my position is that the new evidence is pointing the needle in the direction Comey was not part of the Obama criminal cabal HOWEVER there is still not enough evidence to prove it one way or another.

Melinda is making an observation that DawsonSFields made a long time ago. His twitter feed is filled with reporting on the global money laundering crackdown. Fields points out that the FBI's crackdown on global money laundering actually started back in 2016 when Lynch was still AG. 2016 is also when the Panama Papers leaked and the speculation is that the FBI's crackdown on global money laundering is likely connected to the Panama Papers leak in some manner.

This has not been a good day... After spending the last two weeks quarantined. I decided to go horseback riding, something I haven't done in many years. It turned out to be a horrible big mistake!!! I got on the horse and started out slowly, but then we went a little faster, before I knew it, we were going as fast as the horse could go. I couldn't take the pace and fell off and caught my foot in the saddle stirrup, the horse was then dragging me. The horse just would not stop. Thankfully the manager at Walmart came out and unplugged the machine. He actually had the nerve to take the rest of my coins so I wouldn't try to ride the Elephant...
