Captain Hate,

While those Punks of Portland were making a fuss for the press and media, THIS was going on:

https://www.chicagotribune.com/columns/john-kass/ct-michael-madigan-comed-illinois-kass-20200718-d5kzsdujabfcnbpw6kfrggj2ne-story.html

Headline:

Boss Madigan can see what’s coming and like Chicago’s top fed says, ‘It’s not good'
========================================
Looks to me like Swamp Dwelling, Midwest Edition --MM

Captain Hate

That's a BFD, Miss Marple.

joan

Oh, I just read your 12:08, TK. I am so relieved and happy they are giving you some good stuff.

May our Lord bless you with healing.

henry

On the Chicago / Madigan thing. That mob owns Barrett and Evers, too. Should be fun.

MissMarple2

Jack,

I cannot imagine one all day. That is why I told that plumber yesterday morning that he could go without one, only he couldn't because they had surprise mask inspections!

I can't take more than 45-min to an hour inside. I get claustrophobic and/or short of breath.

How is your son going to dine while wearing a mask?

Comanche Voter

Well I'm still wasting money on the Los Angeles Times. Most mornings I can read it in three minutes or less--all I have to do is filter out the anti Trump and pro BLM codswallop, and there's not much left. I've been taking the dead tree edition of the WSJ for 50 years or so. It's worth a read.

And Captain Hate, I just can't understand why you don't come right out and say what you think of that red nosed pervert William Jefferson Clinton. My wife and I were on vacation in England at the time of Lewinsky. I was sitting peacefully reading one of the London papers at breakfast when I learned that there was "a wanker in the Oval Office". Or so the London reporter wrote.

Captain Hate

I know, CV; I really need to cut loose.

The Horde is having a lot of fun speculating on how much pipe the Yellow Horde will take if the Three River Gorge dam cuts loose. Nike might as well be throwing sneakers in to try and shore it up. Maybe rocket surgeons Kaepernick and Lebron have some ideas...

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I have always found Kass a good reporter and a fine writer.

He used to read him columns on the Saturday talk radio station, and I learned a lit from him about Chicago politics, although not as much as others here.

Link and headline again, since it was on the previous page:

Boss Madigan can see what’s coming and like Chicago’s top fed says, ‘It’s not good'

Old Lurker

TK, I read last week about using low dose radiation on lungs to shorten hospital stays by half or more...

MissMarple2

If you want to see how the Remdesiver issue and the Hdroxychoroqine/zinc issue is politicized, look at the replies to this tweet of Marco Rubio, politicized by both parties.

Old Lurker

I feel your pain, Joan. Yesterday I answered the very same question from Mrs. OL by telling her about Jane's eye and TK's Covid and DrJ's everything on the same day.

If you are not in the JOM Club, you know nothing about the JOM Club.

CH,

I hate supporting AARP but United Health has an extremely affordable Medicare supplemental plan for retirees with no major health problems.

I agree, and MrsJ got one. United Health has paid over a million dollars for MrsJ's cancer treatment. We have not paid a dime. It has been well worth the modest policy cost.

Captain Hate

DrJ,

Since Mrs H is likewise a cancer survivor hers is more expensive than mine but her recent hospital stay, for something else, was very well taken care of.

Narciso

So were talking the legion of doom, henry

I told my neighbor who inquired about genealogy about you, she had just come out of the hospital for some condition, previous radiation treatment had weakened her.

Narciso

If its good enough for thr president of brazil who's operating on one lung.

DrJ

CH,

They have been very good to us. MrsJ now has eye problems, which is not uncommon in cancer-treatment patients.

We have transferred the case to the UC Davis Medical Center, to the guy who did one of my cataracts about 15 years ago. Senior faculty, and a nice Jewish boy. He has been great for me, and I trust he will do the same for MrsJ.

henry

Legion of doom? Five families? Definitely. Next steps are Pritzger, then Durban. (Possibly the IL Supreme Court, one of which is the wife of early arrestee Alderman Burke. Each capo has a zone).

Sammy Small

I enjoyed the video's of the Feds whupping up on Antifa in Portland. Remember what Gaylord said back in 2008..."We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

I guess he never thought that idea could come back to bite the lefty groups.

Narciso

Yes like the tambov have st petersburg and spain, the solnetvo have moscow and czechosovakia and vienna

The former has a small part in my novella.

https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2020/07/18/fauci-holds-up-new-york-as-model-for-fighting-coronavirus-they-did-it-correctly.html

KEY POINTS

* National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci on Friday praised New York for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying the state did it "correctly."

* "We know that, when you do it properly, you bring down those cases. We have done it. We have done it in New York," Fauci said in an interview on "PBS NewsHour."

* Gov. Andrew Cuomo instituted some of the strictest reopening requirements in the country, insisting that stay-at-home orders remain in place and many businesses remain closed far longer than other states.
=========================================
MY key points:

*Isn't Fauci involved in a financial interest with a vaccine and Bill Gates?

*Why isn't the Governor of South Dakota,getting praise?

*Why hasn't he retired, since he's almost 80?


Narciso

Btw the whole crew of that mob, who were the supposed link to that russian gal who had the affair with the overstock ceo were acquitted two years ago.

Narciso

They killed 25,000 people half in nursing (winning the future) is he talking about

Neo

Interesting that Black pioneers like John Lewis pass in the middle the BLM nonsense along with Delbert Africa, one of the MOVE “back to nature” activists in West Philadelphia.
A real change of the guard.

rse

MM--

Fauci is involved as an advisor to the Gates-funded Grand Challenges, as is a Dean at Imperial College London where that horrific model came from that led to shutdowns.

So I have been going through the curricula for "Reopening" K-12 schools and there are lesson plans created for children to "visualize a new reality for society:. Don't even get me started on how much Racism and george floyd come up.

Paging STEPHANIE

I sent you an email last week, but catsmeat and momto2 and I have lunch reservations for a late lunch Tuesday and we would like very much for you to join us. I picked a place with outside seating under a tree canopy with easy access from several major highways, but it is over on the river near the cobb fulton border.

We decided to stay out of confused keisha's domain.

lyle

confused keisha's domain.

I guess this turn of phrase is better than “confused bottom’s domain.”

So the fmr saudi intel chief abscomded with a bunch of money from the counter terror fund, interesting

At 10:18am ET it’s 88 degrees at the President’s golf club and forecast says it will be 96 degrees so he may avoid the heat and visit with old friends inside or use one of the conference rooms to do some work. If he plays a round of golf we will see pics.

OL: "If you are not in the JOM Club, you know nothing about the JOM Club."

:)

Funny, I'll read my husband jom posts or tell him things, and he nods and agrees, but he doesn't really understand how fond you can get of different people on here. I can remember telling him about daddy passing away, and he said, 'oh, no, the airplane pilot?' I told him I had always planned to fly up and have lunch with daddy, Miss Marple, and GentlemanJim one of the next times they met. He nodded in agreement that I should go if I wanted to, so he does indulge me about my passion for this place.

I had back surgery the year everyone went to the Tea Party in Washington, DC, and have regretted not being able to meet so many of the jomers.

*******************

I ordered some Quercetin to have on hand and whoever fulfilled the order inserted a package of Two-layer Anti-Bacterial Face Masks. Made in Vietnam. Note on pkg. says: Not intended for medical or healthcare use. :)

Jane

Joan,

The DC Tea Party meet-up was fabulous. Clarice took us all to lunch. We all marched together. And we all remain friends to this day. Wish you had been there!

Not to be rude, but John Lewis lied about it, saying people threw things at him. As a result my mourning is curtailed.

Narciso

Joan i tried to send you what i had worked out on my novella did you get it, ive revised since the last time.

lyle

My mourning never started.

Narciso

My mother got two sets of masques now that theyve gone back to twilight zone status

MissMarple2

joan,

joan I am so sorry you never got to come meet with us! Maybe one day.
======================================

It occurs to me with Cuomo acting like a mob boss, Newsom shutting everything down, and Chicago getting lots of government people being arrested, this might be like when thhe Tory government was in shock after Brexit, when they thought they could just orter the Brits around.

joan

No, Narciso, I've never received anything from you -- not email or novella.

haven't looked at email today, will check and let you know.

Jack is Back!

What a bunch of wussie wimps to think playing in 96F is awful and taxing. We play in that heat and humidity every day in July and August. We do have specially scented (lavender) ice towels that are the best thing since sliced bread:) BTW, a lot of the members use pull or push buggies - 18 holes in this heat is rough driving a cart but walking 18 and using a buggy is plain insane.

I don't know if I mentioned it but my little girl Beagle, Lady, found her way out through the back pool fence. Her Fido collar was discharged, so no Zap for her. Finally, she came back dehydrated and hungry. That'll teach her:)

Off to Publix, so I can wear my mask.

joan

narciso,

DrJ

he doesn't really understand how fond you can get of different people on here.

MrsJ doesn't either. I stick around for the people, though the signal-to-noise ratio has gone down.

I had a good chat with Matt. He is a very good man.

Marlene

Good afternoon! We're letting the daughter and son-in-law de-stress up here in the woods. The were mumbling about the spotty cellphone and internet service. Ha! Too bad! Hubby is cooking pulled pork and baked beans with a side of cole slaw for supper tonight. Tomorrow noon is the lobster feed, I wish you all could be here!
P.S. Thinking of you, TK!

Is JOM classified as “social media”?

I am enjoying watching Tony Finau. He was playing a few groups behind us here in Park City last week.

My wife and I were on vacation in England at the time of Lewinsky.

I was, too. My Democrat mom and I (I guess I was still technically a Dem at the time but I was already disgusted with Clinton) watched the televised deposition on the TV in our London hotel room. We were both completely embarrassed and demoralized.

We're having my BIL and his super lefty girlfriend over for dinner. Last time this happened during the 2016 election it didn't go well. BIL is lefty too but hates conflict, especially family conflict. She didn't want to visit with us much after the election, lol, that's why she hasn't been over since, although BIL comes over once in awhile.

I suspect we'll all be on best behavior. Wish me luck though. There's so little to talk about re: current events that isn't a minefield.

I really like her but she has a hard time not bringing up politics.

sbwaters

There is room for grace even where little, if any, is deserved.

sbwaters

Porch, how do remarks go over like "I understand your view, considering your upbringing" and "I understand your view considering the news bubble you are in."

YOu could also finish by saying, "Come visit again and I can nudge you toward a more sensible world view you can validate for yourself."

Just trying to help.

That's a lack of character flaw of the left. There's so much else to talk about in life but they let it define them. I can't and don't respect anyone like that.

GUS

Why should I mourn the passing of John Lewis????
I will pray for the repose of his soul, but John Lewis, did damage to our nation, by helping to create and funding a welfare state.

Another Bob

"And a disruptive element is gone."

I've noted that too. Voluntary?

matt - deplore me if you must

How dare faucial say such a thing!

If you remember, the timelines were incredibly damning of Pelosi, Cuomo, an DiPhonio.

There was dancing in the streets a the fog of the virus came rolling in. ben after Trump had shut down air travel, these monsters were calling him names.

Cuomo and the other idiot governors sending the most vulnerable patients into the nursing homes is worthy of Stalin or maybe some of those frontier monsters who gave the Indians blankets infested with disease.

And the barking seals clap.

matt - deplore me if you must

It's time for a new keypad for this computer. It is also time fo me to proofread more carefully!

DrJ

And a disruptive element is gone.

That's right, of course, and it is easy to forget. Still, I miss DoT, daddy, frau and pagar. I probably missed a few (like Ann).

We are an older group, so we will lose people, but I still miss them.

My keyboard needs replacement. too! On top of it sticking, many of the most-used letters have worn off, so it's like I am taking touch typing in high school again, and trust me, I wasn't very good!

The worn out keys are R,I,O,H, and N.S is on its last legs.

MrsJ, OTOH, goes through a keyboard a year. Go figure.

Dr J,

I was thinking about Ann today. And I think about Daddy everyday. I still miss PUK and others too. Frau was with us in DC for the Tea Party rally.

I also miss Hit and other people who thank god are still living!

MissMarple2

This is true, because my son who was in high school in the 80's was VERY familiar with who Donald Trump was. HA!

GUS

One of the reasons, WE, are all still great friends for the most part, is that, we can fight, disagree and get mad, but generally, we're all sensible, logical, and full of fun and love.
I cannot tell you the love I've been given HERE, and on my PHONE and on my E-mail, AND in person.
DrJ. It's been a LONG TIME, since DoT stopped appearing here. He is missed. He is a THROW BACK ADULT MALE AMERICAN. The shit we are going thru must make his head spin. His Pal JiB likewise. Men who gave and gave and gave TO AMERICA, to see the ingratitude, and the MARXIST attempts to both RUIN AMERICA and to COUP our PRESIDENT.
Frau reached out to me with VERY kind words. Pagar was one of a kind. DADDY'S PASSING made me cry. We move on, and we gain a few news pals here and there.

DrJ

Jane,

After I posted, I remembered hit. I used to organize an annual get-together when he would come to the Bay Area for his annual salesforce.com meeting. He may still do it, but he has not contacted me.

There also is Ms. Texas Bluebell, whose name I forget at the moment. She worked with JMH and me on the Obama education stuff. Wonderful person.

Jack is Back!

Heh, all.

Of course we miss our Hall of Fame of JOM inductees, which by the way I am the Commissioner, and DoT, Frau, Ann, PUK, and pagan are the initial inductees.

I have a special place on the wall for Sue and a rejection letter for Andurol.

I'm old enough to remember the Profumo affair, when banging prostitutes was enough to bring down a government.
Howie Carr was off for his daughter's wedding yesterday and his sidekicks played this podcast about Chappaquiddick yesterday, July 18th being the anniversary, and about 24 minutes in it talks about Mary Jo's landlord was a bag man for a bunch of Democrats including LBJ, and who also served as a high-priced pimp for politicians. The pols included not just JFK, but Gerry Ford, and LBJ and Hoover were able to use this to coerce Ford into helping whitewash the Warren Commission investigation.

(It figures Howie's daughter would get married on Chappaquiddick day)

Hello Lovely MissM. Our friend/fiend Barry Hussein, graduated from a very prestigious H.S. Ponahuo, he was an average student. The link I posted is kind of ass licking, but had the bones to understand a bit about OBAMA. He sat on the bench in BASKETBALL. I.O.W. HE DID NOT PLAY MUCH.
His former Coach has made it clear, that OBAMA was a bitch/cry baby. Obama was never an ACHIEVER in his H.S. and COLLEGE years. No work ethic to be noticed. No JOB, no lifelong friends to stand beside him and tell the LEGEND.
This is OLD TERRITORY, but......what we are witnessing now, is OBAMA'S LEGACY. The man is not IGNORANT, he is IDEOLOGICAL, and he has a CHIP on his SHOULDER, the size of TEXAS.

Thanks for that reminder! I keep hearing the political press and other dems touting Michelle as the POTUS. HA! No way!

The only work she did in 8 years was picking out drapery colors, assigning workers and volunteers for the Easter Egg Roll, and supervising the Lighting of the Christmas Tree.

Otherwise, she was meeting with fashion designers who made ugly clothes and going to parties.

McCain was interested in being a big shot at thee Pentagon, and Romney would have sold us out to the Chinese! Every time I see Romney now, I have a visceral reaction; he just makes me sick!

Back later! At least I got the kitchen clean, 3 load of laundry, and the floor mopped!

Laura Ingraham is very good Dave. I can't stand Hannity, but I love Tucker. Lou dobbs (Fox Biz) is very good as is Bartaromo. on and I love Brian Kilmeade. The rest not so much. So is Newsmax on line or TV?

GUS

Capn, I agree on the McStain and Mutt Wrong Knee point. We WANTED to believe McStain and/or Mutt Wrong Knee, were on our side. We needed to believe that the BALL-LESS GOP, actually had a CONCEPT, that was different from the LIBTARD-O-CRAT party.
Both MUTT and JOHNNY CRASH, were not HONORABLE MEN, who had even a clue about AMERICAN VALUES.
If MUTT RUMBLEY had won, he'd be finishing his second term right now. What did this son of a bitch stand for.?
