I gather Obama is the latest Biden surrogate. That should be fun! Maybe he could stand in for Slow-Joe in the next debate.

MissMarple2

Porchlight,

Let me recommend The Dilley Show on You Tube.

My sister also pointed out that she couldn't understand all the pearl-clutching and Karening on Trump's mouth; our father was much worse, having worked in the army and in construction all his life.

We wouldn't clean our rooms until Dad told us to get off our buttermilk butts and get busy and he often said an employee wasn't worth sour owl shit. My sister (the artist) once sent me a cartoon when I was overseas labelled "The Famous Sour Owl." HA!

And speaking of Karening, daughter told me not to stay up too late, so I am off to bed.

Good night, all!

Miss Marple,

I think Fauci, like Joe Paterno, will come to regret sticking around too long.

Not to worry. It does look like a plan with a lot of moving parts may be coming together!

We re-watched the first Inspector Morse episodes this week. I'd forgotten what a lousy detective he was. The bodies dropped until there were few suspects left. He did a better job as Endeavour (less alcohol damage). Arrogant jerk in both.

Had the CHINA BIDEN VIRUS, not come to the fore,

Joe Buy'd me, has stayed around to collect the graft, POP, is going to be responsible for is SON, going to federal prison. I GUARANTEE, he'll cry and use his DEAD SON, in attempt to extricate himself. IT'S SICK and it's real.

Biden is shitting his already SHAT, britches.
I'm quite sure TEACHER JILL, is completely in the dark about where JOE the Chin Biden, got all of his CASHISH from. LIES, BLUFFING, TOUGH BUY POSTURING, EGO and HUBRIS.
Throw the nearly dead bastard into PRISON. Then ask Obama about the rest.

I'm pretty sure actual photos of Joe Biden's son with a crack pipe are not "Russian disinformation."

GUS

I mistyped Fraudski's salary from the tax payer.
Fraudski, at 79, is only bringing home $384,000.00 PER YEAR.
I apologize for the error.
He's barely scraping by.

Dave (in MA)

As has been pointed out by JOM sources familiar with the topic, it's a meth pipe, not a crack pipe.

Narciso

The problem was it was uncomfortably preachy in the prequel. As if they shoe horn current sentiments into life 50 years ago.

GUS

Dave, why am I not seeing, Hunter-Meth Smoker Biden pictures and quotes all over the INTERWEB????

Ralph L

As I recall, he did do better in the later Morse episodes not based on the books. He's less distracted by the ladies. He's superhuman as a young man in "Endeavour," when the crimes are incredibly complicated.

Another Bob

Isn’t there a touch of “pathetic” in this? I almost feel sorry for Clapper here. You know he knows better, but he’s in someone’s pocket so he has to do this.

https://twitter.com/cnn/status/1317307227963678721

Nah, never mind. He should burn.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

So, are Clapper, CNN and the NYT saying the Russians put a meth pipe in Hunter's chops while he was sleeping or that they photoshopped it?
Are they saying he didn't set up corporations with Jim Biden to receive Chinese money?
Are they saying the wife of the former mayor of Moscow had a legitimate reason for giving Hunter $3.5 million?

Let's face it, between Obama and Biden and the press's role in covering them, Trump and Rudy Giuliani are Woodward and Bernstein, Barry and Biden are Nixon and Agnew and the press are Nixon's Plumbers.

Another Bob

Substitute Clinton fof Tattaglia and Biden for Barzini?

GUS

A-Bob, Clapper, was once an extremely important SECURITY OFFICER for the United States of AMERICA.
He was caught lying to CONGRESS, and has been involved with the ATTEMPTED COUP of our DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT. He got in too deep. He did stuff for OBAMA et al, that can never be RIGHTED.
He was not worthy of the offices he held. His character, rather, lack of character, is emblematic of small time HUSTLERS, who made their "BONES" by doing Obama's dirty work. BRENNAN IS/WAS WORSE.
The concept of a FRUITCAKE, such as OBAMA having so much power, and having CHOICES of DEPARTMENT HEADS, who are ALL TAINTED, dishonest, and corrupt is EPIC.
All of this funneled to, and led to the SPYING and OBAMA approved coup attempt, versus, POTUS DJT, who was duly elected and scuttled OBAMA and RODHAM'S cover ups.

Also true of Murdoch and Foyle (whom I didn't like). The hero must pass muster.

Dave (in MA)

Pretty sure that pix of wasted nekkid Hunter Biden with drug paraphernalia didn't require a whole lot of SVR involvement.

Also, the prospect of a known crackhead dropping off his Mac laptop at Geeks R Us and forgetting about it doesn't exactly call for much suspension of disbelief, but that's just me, I guess. Maybe I don't read enough cold war spy thrillers these days.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

It's worth remembering that FDR didn't have to pack the court. He merely had to threaten it and the SCOTUS became putty in his progressive little hands.
John Roberts is already silly putty and Biden hasn't even explicitly said he wants to do it, yet.

Are we supposed to still be in high dudgeon, because POTUS, picked a replacement for Ruthie Ginsburg???? Ruthie, by her own admission, hung around, despite pancreatic cancer, in hopes of being replaced by RODHAM'S CHOICE, or by leaving a note with regard to her PERSONAL and POLITICAL opinion of WHO SHOULD REPLACE HER, or HOW the REPLACEMENT PROCESS should exist????

Ignatz,

Someday I want to see the house of cards come tumbling down on John Roberts' pious head.

GUS

Jim, Wisconsin elected a pathetic cadaver to the highest office in the State.
Tony Evers (Evil), is a clown. He couldn't be the manager of a church festival. He's a complete and utter loser. He won. Elections are so completely dysfunctional, because LIBS CHEAT. Evers(Evil) won. He can barely tie his own shoes. SERIOUSLY.
People who claimed UNEMPLOYMENT, in a STATE LOCK DOWN that EVERS (EVIL) Created, have not in many cases been paid, from MARCH CLAIMS. Create an EMERGENCY, squeeeeel about THE PEOPLE and "working families", but don't have COMPETENT department heads, to do their jobs, to aid those who EVERS (EVIL) and his losers, have harmed.

jim nj

I noticed that the date to vote Comey out of committee is the same as for the debate.

I looked at the debate topics and saw a lot of anti-Trump bias in the selections.

Trump seems to enjoy/endure these things though he knows he's going into the lion's den. The Biden drip, drip, drip is perfect for Trump to greet Biden at the debate with, "Hey, big guy, how ya doin."

jim nj

GUS,

I'd trade you Murphy for Evers, but I'm not that stupid.

“Comey”??

Who would have ever thought an announcement like that would be made in America? The American people will not tolerate this. Wonderful patriotic crowd! God bless them!

"Play the Marseillaise. Play it!" Victor Lazlo, Casablanca

cathyf

Comment I heard was that it was from 2015, and they were supposed to play a recording, but something went wrong (technical difficulties). Not so much unpatriotic as just dumb. The crowd simply solved the problem in an obvious way.

(My kids spent their high school years trekking about singing the anthem at school sporting events. The different groups split up the games. Small school, where the chorus teacher is also a football coach.)

GUS

Jim, Murphy is an asshoe. Evers, is a cadaver.
It's worse that EVERS (EVIL) doesn't do his own work. He's incapable. He's a weak little man, who has never accomplished anything in his life.
GUBMINT LIFER, got elected thru FULL COMMIE CHEATING.
Jim, people like EVERS (EVIL), allow the SOY BOYS and LEZTARDS run the show. It's truly pathetic.

GUS

My beloved Barbara, you are indeed correct, however, how many Americans, and propagandized 40 and under AYERS AMERICANS, will see this crap??

We have 25 years of FULL COMMIE, anti-American public school dis AND mis INFORMATION, and of course PUBLIC SCHOOL PROPAGANDA, that infiltrates our society. Look at the MEDIA. 40 somethings, all the way down, who hate America, because that is what was TAUGHT to them.

GUS

Cathyf, the microphone worked. One team came back out after being told that there would be no NATIONAL ANTHEM. One team did not come back.
THE MICROPHONE WORKED. Many in the bleachers took it upon themselves to sing the ANTHEM. Why didn't the MC, with the mic, do so???

GUS

I ....ALWAYS, hold the door at a store, at an office building, at my church, for EVERYONE and ANYONE, who is following me. And I mean within 50 yards of me. Most smile and say THANK YOU, some nod and move on, on occasion a lady will reject my kindness. I get it. I pity the fool. The LEFT makes EVERYONE in their clutches, into some sort of aggrieved victim. Too many of US, do the kind thing, and are looked at, as bigots of some sort.
FULL COMMIE LIBTARDS, do not respect RANDOM ACTS of KINDNESS.

Barbara

GUS,

That's why President Trump is such a pivotal character in our history. He has clearly drawn the lines that were obscured from GHW Bush through Obama and awakened Americans.

cathyf,

At the beginning of the video, I believe I heard the announcer say, "This season we are not going to play the National Anthem." Perhaps he said something else, but that's what it sounded like to me. I think that's what caused the angry reaction in the crowd.

I also love Jonagold apples!

Barbara

GUS,

You are a gentleman and a scholar! I remember the days when women were so "woke" that we were supposed to refuse to let a man open a door for us. Silly and foolish. I thought women had dropped that nonsense.

cathyf

Gus, 45 years later, every time I go through a door I still hear the voice of Sr Pascal "Hold the door for the person behind you!"

(She was the principal, an old style nun in full habit who always seemed to be everywhere and know everything.)

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Dag nab it!
Lyle posted that national anthem story hours ago.
I did make an attempt to check. I searched pages of JOM comments for my link. But I had a twitter link while lyle had Twitchy.
Oh well. Sorry!

GUS

God bless you Barbara.
Whether the MC-scammer, said "this year, we'll shit on America, and the Veterans who have kept us free"
Or the douche bag who gets a stiffy by having a microphone at a girls/womens soft ball game, feels "empowered", has some relevance.
I play lead guitar and I am LEAD singer in a POP ROCK BAND. I have a MIKE/MIC, in my face all night. I love it, but it doesn't give me POWER.
Cutting to the chase. Anyone who is given that SHURE SM57 mic, needs to understand that his/her tripe, isn't part of the GIG.

jim nj

GUS,

From a distance I can see that Evers isn't up to the job.

Here in NJ we are stuck with the Goldman Sachs curse. Corzine and Murphy must have had really smart deputies at Goldman propping them up. When they became governors they couldn't attract that kind of supporting intelligence. Either that or they had no political sense.

Then you get a guy like Evers, who seems to have enough political sense to become governor, yet has no apparent common sense.

In some ways Trump is like Murphy and Corzine. A businessman who is somewhat off politically.

People used to complain about the turmoil in the Trump administration. All the people who left or were fired. I think that was just Trump realizing that he had some very poor subcontractors.

jim nj

JimSunny,

Thus the new neo :)

jim nj

My internet is bouncing up and down, so I may give up.

One of the things I'm seeing from governors is that they don't have a unity of purpose.

They can do the best thing for their people or they can do the best thing to thwart Trump.

The former is a long-term strategy, the latter is extremely short-term.

I suspect a lot of people are figuring this out. If I'm right, this election will foster a trend in later elections.

I lost my business to elect Biden is not a comforting thought. Especially when it doesn't work.

GUS

Jim+ Nj. The MURPHY and Corzine FILTH is BIG TIME vs the Tiny Evil/Tony Evers shit. Wisconsin is 5.6/7 million peeps. Pretty average for AMERICA. Furthermore, Corzine, was EXTREMELY WEALTHY and hooked up. He even got injured in a wreck, where he wasn't wearing a MASK...heh heh, Gus means he wasn't wearing his SEAT BELT RESTRAINT.
Jim. Character means EVERYTHING. My son Mickey was told that about an hour ago. And my boy already lives it. Democrats/Full Commies, never live VALUES.

jim nj

I didn't take offense at that Barri Weiss Tablet article, other than the obligatory Trump denouncement.

How often do we see that from somebody supposedly on the right? Every day. Trump, but...

So for somebody on the left to use that same construct is not unusual. It's like, yes Trump sucks, but forget that for the moment.

And that's where the truth arises. Trump isn't coming for you. Trump isn't "coming" for anyone.

deBlasio, Cuomo and lots of others are.

jim nj

GUS,

That's kind of what I'm writing about.

Corzine ran a financial behemoth with lots of smart people having input on his decisions.

He retires and becomes governor of NJ and when the state trooper tells him to "buckle-up" he ignores the advice and the law because he knows better than the lowly trooper.

That's what is interesting to me about Trump v. a Corzine. They both know, from experience, where the decimal point belongs.

Where they differ is in how either knows where the decimal point comes from.

GUS

Jim, I remember when bearded Corzine, didn't wear his SEAT BELT. Those rules are for losers and the hoi polloi.
Corzine is a wealthy fuck up.

jim nj

I don't think that Trump is a financial genius. Too many bankruptcies. He's a developer and a financial risk-taker.

Developers thrive on OPM (other people's money) and bank loans. It's called leverage.

I want to build, create this "fantastic new thing, who else is onboard?"

A little showmanship and your project is funded.

After that it's project management. If a low-bid contractor can't perform you fire them and don't pay them.

A perfect project is rare, so you you go into battle mode.

Trump would have been a different president if he had been left alone. He wasn't, so he did what he knew. Battle mode.

jim nj

nytol, I'm feeling impaired.

ccgirl, re bottling. Cleaning is very important, clean every tool you will use. Also be very consistent in filling, need room at the top but not too much. Don’t forget the sugar for carbonation, again consistent measuring is important if you add to the bottles — some add to the add to the batch after moving the beer to a new container (more stuff to clean). Make sure the caps have a good seal.

Then you will wait a couple weeks. The yeast has more to do (it doesn’t all fall to the bottom of the fermenter). Store the bottles in a cool, dark place. Don’t refrigerate until you are ready to drink them. The yeast will keep on cleaning up its work for months if you let it. So save some bottles for Christmas and perhaps Valentines Day. You will be able to taste the difference.

One of the big curses of human nature. The skills/talents required to get a job often have little or nothing in common with the skills/talents required to actually do the job well.

It’s a constant whether the “job” is a 9 to 5 actual job, an elected office, or a husband/wife.

If you’re lucky, the person who’s really good at selling themself also happens to be good at whatever it is they’ve sold you onto buying from them, but as we see in our “leaders” it doesn’t happen often.

Henry is right. Clean clean clean!

Tons of people here are sick of ANTIFA. This, even as we see this population prepared to elect a pro-ANTIFA mayor.

I know some here don’t like calling the voters stupid, but there comes a point when I don’t know what other word applies. Regardless of how crappy his opponent is, how can anybody who’s not a blood relative vote to re-elect the idiot mayor there?

Dems gonna pack the Senate as well.

In June the House for the first time passed a bill that would make the Dis­trict of Co­lumbia a state, and Barack Obama in July called Puerto Ri­can state­hood a pro­gres­sive pri­or­ity. Sen­ate De­mo­c­ra­tic leader Chuck Schumer said re­cently that he’d “love to make them states.” This can be done with an act of Con­gress, so a 104-seat Sen­ate would be on the ta­ble with a De­mo­c­ra­tic sweep.

gus posted I'm quite sure TEACHER JILL, is completely in the dark about where JOE the Chin Biden, got all of his CASHISH from.


I can't tell if he left the /s off that post.

Gus, did you watch Sopranos? One of the thing the intellectual types spend reams of pixels discussing about the show was the spouses, mothers, daughters, sisters---how they APPEARED to not know what was going on, but unquestionable did. Much of the development of Carmella's character was about that conflict--raising "good" kids,being best of buds with that priest for a few seasons, but never questioning why her husband was in the ceiling hiding cash, or grabbing his gun to go out at 2 am. You know, just "normal" life at their house.

Slow Joe is both not smart enough and runs his mouth so much that there is NO WAY Jilly doesn't know where the money to keep their lifestyle going comes from. She well may not know what per centage comes from Ukraine v China--but she sure as heck knows if she wasn't propping him up right now, they all might be in jail cells.

Slow Joe being the candidate becomes more clear with each passing day. How could they label this as "just political" if he was a four year retired VP, Obama had moved back to Chicago and taught?

Biden isn't out there to just protect the Bidens--he's giving the entire Uniparty cover right now. Romney's staff guy included.

Remember the big deal about Kerry's ?stepson? formally disassociating from Hunter? There's a whole lot of twenty and thirty somethings who are stepkids, nephews, cousin's kids who have been in on this game for a long, long time.

Good gorgeous morning!

clarice-

The Qtah17 link was a two parter. One, giving credit to the source of the Rudy & Chinese defection , with Bannon and the virologist in the background of said photo. That was a unique photo in and of itself. 2nd part being that it moves, once again, the standard deviation further out from an ever flattening Bell curve that other possible explanations may exist for today’s reality. I don’t know, but am more open to learning different things that I wouldn’t have been able to even accept as remotely possible 3 months ago.

I DO know that the Biden Cash flow games include Panama Paper corporate shell games, unquestionably, just a matter of the mapping now. That info is out there, as well as the banks that facilitated/managed it, for a slight fee (~10-20%, if I were to guess. Legal limit is supposed to be 8.5%)

jimmyk

We’re also getting some insight into how so many politicians get mega-rich as “public servants.” The only difference is most don’t have a drug-addled son involved who leaves a laptop at a repair shop full of damaging emails.

And while no doubt it occurs on both sides of the aisle, Rs know that the MFM will jump all over any dirt on them, whereas Ds can be confident any story will be smothered.

I lived the “Soul of the New Machine”.

At the time it was written, the company I worked for was the largest volume Digital Equipment Corp OEM.

We were hard at work moving our product line to the VAX platform, which is what DG was trying to compete against.

Too little to late. DG failed miserably.

IBM didn’t fare much better in that space either.

Of course Digital Equipment is long gone now too.

When the PC became available, I helped launch a spinoff to exploit that platform. Handwriting was on the wall.
