As we edge ever closer to a matriarchal society, we raise bubble wrapped progeny. That's my view.

I will second that. It's definitely happening in medicine.

From MM's 1:25 link:

Flynn's calls with the former Russian ambassador during the transition were picked up in surveillance and information about them was later leaked. Flynn’s case returned to the national spotlight after the DOJ moved to dismiss charges against him of lying to the FBI about those conversations, despite a guilty plea that he later sought to withdraw.

Considering those calls raised widespread concerns about Flynn, Democrats like Schiff in turn pressed Grenell for the underlying documents. The transcripts Grenell has declassified, though, are for five phone calls Flynn had with Kislyak on Dec. 29, 2016. Flynn's specific call with Kislyak from Dec. 22, 2016, which was picked up in surveillance and later leaked to the press, is in the FBI's possession, a source told Fox News, noting that it was not in Grenell's jurisdiction to declassify.

Did we know about this 12/22 call, and that the FBI has jursisdiction?

I've always stressed to my girls that I'm their father not their friend. That doesn't mean that we can't have spirited discussions on things and do fun things together. But badmouthing me or my convictions isn't an option. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that they honestly believe that what they promote will produce the best outcome, no matter how naive I think they are being, and I expect at least the same consideration.

Leftwingers ridiculed Reagan when he announced his "Star Wars" Strategic Defense initiative. Today Reagan's foresight has led to the US possessing the capability to intercept incoming ICBMs. Trump's Space Force initiative is the next step in technological progress. A nation's ability to defend it's satellites, both military and commercial, is a major national security issue. It's not surprising why the left and Hollywood are ridiculing it.

If it wasn't in Grenell's jurisdiction it was certainly in AG Barr's jurisdiction so I don't think it makes a difference. I bet its almost a certainty Grenell and Barr coordinated together and were in agreement on declassifying it.

Yesterday on iirc PJM, a comment to an article on Ric Grenell, surely from a Patterico level troll, referred to him as a "gay activist". I was wondering when this would start because, although Grenell is gay, the only reason I know that is Mutt Rombley dropped him from his campaign in 2012 because of it. He keeps his private life secondary to being brutally efficient in doing his job. Tammy Bruce has been praising him for a long time and I expect bigger things from him in the future.

Captain Hate

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

Science, how does it work?

MissMarple2

I knew Grenell was gay, but never mentioned it, as far as I know.

He was hired because of his knowledge of foreign policy. He's a super-star with the MAGA crowd and has really helped the President.

So far it looks like the Left, having alienated a fairly large number of blacks, and killed off a bunch of seniors, are now getting ready to make a bunch of gays angry.

So last week as I was out I noticed the fresh produce stand had its wooden stall up so I hoped it meant they would open. Just checked.

I now have fresh pole beans, shelled pink eye and lady peas (bag of each), cantaloupe (just explained to diva if it has no smell do not buy), and 8 ears of white corn to make skillet corn with tonight.

So excited as I haven't had any of this since at least last september. My pole bean water is simmering for another 15 minutes or so before I add the pole beans.

Was already making turkey meatballs (with dark meat) for dinner. Fresh produce from a farm stand makes it officially summer. No one but me there and the cash had been in my wallet since March. Only place now that wants cash.

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) A new poll conducted by Cygnal shows Tommy Tuberville with a 23 point lead over former U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions.

Yeah, and 10,000+ are already recovered, most never sick or barely sick.

(To understand the weird perverse incentives of contact tracing... If you are a contact and test negative you have to quarantine 14 days; positive & no symptoms, 10 days. Positive with symptoms, 10 days from onset of symptoms or 3 days from symptoms resolving, whichever is later.)

The nutjob Karen was clearly unhinged and abusing that dog. Threatening to call the cops and falsely accuse the black guy of assaulting her was out of line as well. Her firing seems fully justified to me.

I'm enjoying reading the blue on blue comments. This woman is a stereotypical Progtard. It's good for the black community to find out they are just as racist as the Progtards accuse conservatives of being.

--That is a Himalayan region where India and China have been biting each other’s ankles for years on which border is correct...--

I know the dispute isn't new JiB, but this latest incursion of 10k CCP troops camping out in India is and is in line with Xi's current bizarre attempts at what seem to be making sure the entire world is China's motivated enemy.

It's like they actively want to commit financial suicide:

The nearly 500,000 students enrolled in the California State University system’s 23 campuses should expect to pay full price for tuition this fall.

A spokeswoman for the system told The College Fix via email that tuition is expected to remain at the regular price despite the system’s decision to remain virtual for the fall 2020 semester.

“There are no plans to reduce tuition and campus-based mandatory fees at this time,” said CSU spokeswoman Toni Molle. “One of the benefits of announcing our planning now is to allow for additional professional development opportunities for faculty and staff over the summer which lead to the best possible learning experience that we can provide for students.”

https://www.thecollegefix.com/california-state-university-no-plans-to-reduce-fall-tuition-despite-keeping-classes-online/

Why on Earth would ANYONE pay full tuition - and "mandatory campus-based fees" to attend a school that's conducting its classes entirely online?

When her employer came out and said they were putting Karen Dogstrangler on admin. leave, I thought it would have been nice if the guy contacted them and asked them not to fire her just because she acted stupidly.

YouTube Blames ‘Error’ for Censoring Anti-China Phrases

Comments that contain such phrases are deleted within seconds, which suggests that it’s the work of an algorithm.

One apparently banned phrase is “gongfei” (共匪), which can be translated as “communist bandit.” It seems to date back to the Chinese civil war era.

Another phrase that has been deleted is “wumao” (五毛), which literally means “fifty cents” and is commonly used to describe the army of internet trolls the CCP uses to spread its propaganda online. It’s rumored the trolls used to be paid around 50 cents per post.

...

After Luckey’s tweets went viral, attracting the attention of the mainstream tech media, YouTube’s official Twitter account finally responded, stating that the removal of the anti-CCP terms was an “error in our enforcement.”

“This isn’t a new policy or result of a policy change. Appreciate you reporting it.”

Despite YouTube’s comment, a question still remains: if this really was just an error, why did the company remain silent until the story picked up more attention?

I sent that ZH article around that Iggy posted earlier on the pension disaster and one of my buds responded:

It has been a disaster in the making for some time. It’s the elephant in the room. The market returns won’t ever fill the gap of unfunded pension liability. And, the unions won’t ever ask for sufficient contributions to make up the difference. If they did the Unions would collapse - not a bad thing.

Old blue states would be a nightmare, and so would California. This will be one of our next big Financial crises, and there will be a run on the bank due to early retirements. Who will get holding the bag? Taxpayers will likely get stuck with it if the socialist Dems have anything to say about it.

Unfortunately our politicians do not have the will to address the problem. The solution would be draconian. It would be a mixture of of measures. All new employees would be on defined contribution plans. Existing employees would convert to defined contribution plans effective immediately. Retirement age would be adjusted to a sliding scale starting at 70 and Benefits converted to an effective contribution model given the assets existing in the pool at the time of conversion. Those who were in the pool will be allocated a percentage of the pool based upon age brackets, with lower age groups getting nothing. No pension plans will exist in the future other than defined contribution and employer matching will contribute to those plans like they do payroll takes - i.e., no borrowing. This would be a major bankruptcy haircut and result in a death Nell to unions. The socialist pukes will fight for public contribution through additional public debt. Conservatives will argue equity and fairness. Fears expressed by public voting will influence the outcome. The result will be a much more competitive economy going forward.

The economic rape of our country needs to be righted. After all, business went to China for a reason, and our blue collar class largely paid the price. China does not have an unfunded pension liability problem. This is going to be ugly.

Prayer of healing to Saint Raphael the Archangel

Oh, kindly Saint Raphael the Archangel, I invoke you as the patron of those who have been struck by disease or bodily infirmity.

You have prepared the remedy that healed Tobias’ blindness and his name means “The Lord Heals.”

I turn to you, begging your divine assistance in my present need: Please heal my dear friends vision.

If it be of God’s will, cure her illness, or at least grant her the grace and strength she needs to endure it patiently, offering it for the forgiveness of her sins and for the salvation of her soul.

Teach her to unite her sufferings with those of Jesus and Mary and to seek the grace of God in prayer and communion.


I want to imitate you in your eagerness to do God’s will in all things.

Like young Tobias, I choose you as my companion on my journey through this valley of tears. I want to follow your inspirations every step of the way, so that I can reach the end of my journey under your constant protection and in the grace of God. Please heal my friend Jane.

Archangel Saint Raphael, you revealed yourself as the divine assistant of the Throne of God, come into her life and help her in this moment of trial.

Grant her the grace and blessing of God and the favor I ask of you for your powerful intercession.

Great Physician of God heal Jane as thou didst with Tobias, if this be the will of the Creator.

Saint Raphael, Resource of God, Angel of Health, Medicine of God, pray for her.

Amen.
