Under the 2018 EO the US would stand to cease and estimated 145 billion dollars in Chinese assets.. Also to be included in this seizure would be 1.07 trillion dollars of debt owed to the Chinese...

Well played DJT, you are definitely the touted mastermind many claim...

Jj 9:39 and 9:50 I'd like to read your story, very much.

A few years ago my cousin got her two full length minks out of the closet and we swanned around in them for two days, went to the shops, a restaurant, a huge alcohol warehouse in Delaware, a retirement community, didn't hear a peep. You need someone like me to egg you on, to be a partner in crime.

MissMarple2

ACK! Apologies for the double post. My fault, totally! (And it would be a long one, of course. Figures!)

Miss Marple, maybe because it is so exciting? I'd like a few fireworks about now.

BuffyUK,

I LOVE the idea of you egging on a co-conspirator!

One of the reasons I love JOM is even if I can't meet everyone personally, at least there are enough people here who share most of my views that I know I am not totally off-the-rails crazy!

Another reply to Code Monkey. Take it or leave it.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the House
Not a Democrat was stirring, not even a louse;
The Bills were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that A Socialist soon would be there;
The children were nestled all cold in their beds;
While visions of being back in school danced in their heads;
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's trap.
When out on the Mall there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow,
Gave a lustre of midday to objects below,
When what to my wondering eyes did appear,
But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny endangered rein-deer,
With a little old hag so pitiful and slick,
I knew in a moment she must be Pelosi that witch.
More rapid than eagles her coursers they came,
And she whistled, and snorted, and called them by name:
"Now, AOC! now, Swalwell! now Jeffries and Lofgren!
On, Schiff! on, Pressley! on, Nadler and Tlaib!
To the top of the Dome! to the top of the Mall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"
As leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So up to the Housetop the coursers they flew
With the sleigh full of free shit and the Speaker too鈥
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney Pelosi came with a bound.
She was dressed all in fur, from her head to her foot,
And her clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys she had taken flung on her back,
And she looked like a robber just opening his sack .
Her eyes鈥攈ow bloodshot! her pimples, how cherry!
Her cheeks were like wrinkled, her nose like a berry!
Her droll little mouth was drawn up like a cow,
And the beard on her chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe she held tight in her teeth,
And the smoke, it encircled her head like a sheath;
She had a broad face and a little round belly
That shook when she laughed, like a bowl full of KY Jelly.
She was sickly and dump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw her, in spite of myself;
A wink of her eye and a twist of her head
Soon gave me to know I had everything to dread;
She spoke not a word, but went straight to her work,
And filled all her bags with valuables; then turned with a jerk,
And laying her finger inside of her nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney she rose;
She sprang to her sleigh, to her team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like criminals on the lamb,
But I heard him exclaim, ere she drove out of sight鈥
鈥淭here will be NO Christmas at all and to all no good night!鈥

Good morning, my favorite owl story about the first officer killed in the Revolutionary War.

The call echoed around Acton and the minutemen rushed to Davis鈥檚 yard, where they made bullets and prepared for a battle that some, making jokes about finally 鈥榞etting a hit at old [General Thomas] Gage,鈥 relished. Davis rebuked his men, reminding them that the day had brought 鈥榓 most eventful crisis for the colonies. Blood would be spilt, that was certain; the crimson fountain would be opened; none could tell when it would close, nor with whose blood it would overflow. Let every man gird himself for battle and be not afraid, for God is on our side.鈥

As certain as Davis was about the righteousness of their cause, he was equally pessimistic about his own chances for survival. Several days before that fateful dawn, he and his wife had returned home from an excursion to discover that a large owl, a symbol of death, had flown into the house and perched on Davis鈥檚 favorite gun, which hung over the mantel. No one was allowed to disturb the brooding presence, which stayed for days and was interpreted by the captain as an omen that, if the struggle became a full-pitched battle, he would not survive.

Too much time is being spent writing on fairly mundane issues. We are scheduled to have a major snow storm, and I would like some advice.

Before a storm, I always put food out for the squirrels, chipmunks and birds, but I am having second thoughts. Any suggestions on how late I should put the food out? I wouldn鈥檛 want to be the cause of them being caught in the storm.

With a bayonet you don't so much "unload" as you go all stabby-stabby, and if you weren't able to see their eye-whites you're probably too far away for the stabs to find purchase.

MissMarple2

Narciso,

Of course they cheated then. They screwed around with the vote totals to make it seem like Obama's 2012 "victory" was reasonable.

They were certain they had miscalculated in 2016 (small Trump margin in several states) so they increased the weighted vote in the Dominion machines.

Remember how Trump told us to vote in person? Remember how he had all of those airport rallies with huge numbers of people showing up, even though they knew most couldn't get in? That was to encourage people to vote in person as a demonstration (and also to make it more difficult to mess around with the vote totals because they would have less time).

When the Trump numbers proved far higher than the Democrats anticipated, the Democrats had a short time frame to work in; they went into full panic mode and shut down counting (forgetting to stagger the times shut downs were initiated) and made other foolish errors.

Now people are still asking uncomfortable questions about OTHER elections (including 2012) despite people like Mitch McConnell making bone-headed statements calling Biden the president-elect.

My inner cynic is warring with my internal, eternal optimistic nature, and which will be proven right, I do not know.

Cecil Turner,

You don鈥檛 know me and probably wouldn鈥檛 want to; however, for years I enjoyed your intelligent and thought provoking comments. You added so much to discussions on this blog. I never did address you before but I鈥檓 going to comment on what you said this morning:
First you criticize:
鈥溾iscussions devolve into personalities, usually based on nonsense鈥,
鈥淎long with various not-very-veiled jabs that make my point about insults better than I ever could.鈥
鈥渕any Trump supporters seem so invested they lose perspective.鈥
Then you make a comment about Hunter Biden: 鈥淎nd the Hunter Biden tax evasion investigation. I don't have any more (or less) concern about him being prosecuted than them . . . and don't see why I should.鈥
I don鈥檛 even understand this one. 鈥渨ho is 鈥榯hem鈥? The people shouting 鈥榣ock her up鈥? I think the general opinion on here about Hunter Biden is the way his larceny was hidden by our own Justice Department and FBI and lied about by his father.
My daughter and I were talking about a person we love who is infected with 100% Trump Derangement Syndrome, and I said, 鈥業鈥檓 not going to get into a discussion with him even though he keeps trying to force one on me. If I do say something noncommittal he comes back and attacks me. She responded, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 what I don鈥檛 understand about people who want to tell you how they feel about things, when you try and say what you think, they get angry. They brought up the subject, but they don鈥檛 want to hear what you have to say.鈥
So, what did you expect when you came back here and started discussing President Trump鈥檚 mistakes? Agreement? Polite debate? Not after almost five years of the left鈥檚 lies and the hate spewed by Comey, Clapper, Brennan, CBSNBCABC,MSNBC,CNN, plus the lies on major newspapers.
Now, you can SOB me.

The snow here is quite light, much worse just south of Cowlumbus.

I put suet and seed out for the birds when I can find the suet but the squirrels can do lots of damage if they get in your house. My wife had a habit of throwing bread in the yard, for the birds she claims. Then squirrels chewed through the insulation on some wires in her sisters attic and my wife finally stopped feeding the little rodents.

Tom R

I listened to the Project Veritas recording of Assange talking to someone at the State Department. I'm not exactly certainly what the significant revelation is here. I think the revelation is that 1) Bradley Manning gave the 250K+ State department cables to Wikileaks
2) A fired Wikileaks employee had a copy of the cables
3) Assange called the State Department to warn the US that the fired employee was about to release them to the public and that Wikileaks had nothing to do with it.
4) The cables were released to the public by the fired employee and Assange had nothing to do with it.

If that is correct, is the purpose of this new video to prove that Assange is not guilty of what the Deep State accuses him of and that he never should have been indicted in the first place?

I don鈥檛 even understand this one. 鈥渨ho is 鈥榯hem鈥? The people shouting 鈥榣ock her up鈥?

I think this belonged on the dead thread, but . . .
Steve's point (paraphrased) was various personalities (including me) would be all "Yeah, it's true that in America we don't go after our political rivals" when Dem AGs and prosecutors "came after Pres Trump and his family." "Them" is Hillary and Hunter.

I get you're okay with going after Hunter Biden. And frankly I don't have any problem with it. What you can't see, apparently, is that it's hypocritical to simultaneously maintain Pres Trump is somehow immune on principle to prosecution.

All of which I wouldn't give the first bloody crap about, except for words put into my mouth which I didn't and wouldn't say.

"All of which I wouldn't give the first bloody crap about, except for words put into my mouth which I didn't and wouldn't say."

Well, there you go: I am not a hypocrite.

Do the democrats have his laptop?

I never said President Trump is somehow immune on principle to prosecution. The AG of NY has been going after him for seemingly years if I'm to believe what's reported. Suing for his business records. He was investigated by Mueller for, what, 2-1/2 to 3 years, then investigated and impeached by Nadler, et al. If the President was dirty, he'd be gone long ago.

It's not hypocritical to hate unfairness, to hate what's been done to President Trump. I didn't like him when he seemed to come from out of nowhere and win the nomination. I do admire his strength of character in working for the average American. Unless there is evidence out there that somehow the left hasn't managed to uncover, he appears to be a decent man. A decent man who has been subjected to cruel, devious attacks and obstruction. Instead of being silenced or weakening and slinking away, he's fought back. I admire his courage.

We had a typical windstorm a couple days ago with gusts in the 40kt range along with lots of rain. The next morning I found a little Junco on the deck with a tiny twig that suggested that it was blown out of the adjacent tree while hanging on to a limb and must have been blown into the house.

https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/12/courage-vs-covid-jack-kerwick/ is very good. Leave it to cs lweis to put this into perspective.

A reader recently brought to my attention an article that C.S. Lewis had written on the panic over the prospect of an atomic bomb attack that had seized the members of his generation. Lewis鈥檚 contemporaries at least had something truly dangerous to fear, for an atomic bomb, being an indiscriminate killer, was certain to leave in its wake widespread destruction and death. Nothing remotely similar can be said for COVID. Still, it is worth revisiting Lewis鈥檚 sagacious counsel, as his words resonate, or should resonate, more profoundly for those of us living today than perhaps at any other time within recent memory.

In 鈥淥n Living in an Atomic Age,鈥 Lewis shares how he is 鈥渢empted to reply鈥 to those who question how life should proceed under the constant threat of nuclear attack. 鈥溾橶hy, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat at night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accident.鈥欌

Lewis elaborates, warning against the loss of perspective that arises 鈥渂y exaggerating the novelty of our situation.鈥 Death was 鈥渁 certainty鈥 long before the invention of the atomic bomb. What 鈥渢he scientists鈥 have done is simply add 鈥渙ne more chance of painful and premature death to a world which already bristled with such chances [.]鈥

This being the case, if and when it comes, 鈥渓et that bomb鈥ind us doing sensible and human things鈥攑raying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts,鈥 and 鈥渘ot huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs. They may break our bodies鈥ut they need not dominate our minds [.]鈥

Lewis concludes with a warning that all of us in the 鈥淐OVID era鈥 should take to heart:

鈥淣othing is more likely to destroy a species or a nation than a determination to survive at all costs.鈥

I never said President Trump is somehow immune on principle to prosecution.

Then I suggest you missed the point in the original (admittedly paraphrased).

If the President was dirty, he'd be gone long ago.

It's a theory.

It's not hypocritical to hate unfairness, to hate what's been done to President Trump.

It is if you only hate it because it happens to be happening to Pres Trump. (And support something similar against someone else.)

2. Shows clip from Maria Bartiromo's show in which she says her sources in the intelligence community say that President Trump won the election, no doubt. (I hope someone steps forward who is willing to reveal his/her name and provide what we know in our hearts is true.)

3. Shows quite a bit of the Project Veritas video with Julian Assange talking to a lawyer for the State Department under Hillary's watch.

4. Discussion of how many people do not want to be forced to take the vaccine, how the survival rate from Covid is actually a little bit better than from complications from taking the vaccine.

Probably some other stuff, but I have been dealing with naughty pets knocking over bookshelves and other work-making annoyances, so will review and add anything else later in the day.

(By the way, this is a good exercise in why FBI 302's are simply a way for them to make up what they want on the subject's report, as it is very difficult to do a detailed recap, which is what those 302's are claimed to be by the FBI.)

Yes nuclear catastrophist which hit its peak with the freeze movement premeditated surrender in the 80s.

Since biden was for the nuclear freeze, then we'll probably be going for abject surrender, just like eliminating fracking is a point against us.

Hi Joan! Merry Christmas!

The supplement is a capsule form called Balance of Nature. The doctor has a radio presentation ( taped) on saturdays 5pm pst on KSFO talk radio. In depth on the nutritoon science and the extraction tech.

Order by phone: 866.655.1213

69.99 for 1 months supply; 6 capsules ( 3 red 3 green) gives you the 10 servings per day recommnded; mrs kid takes 1 of each for 3 servings per day. I'm in month 18 at 10 servings. Good baseline nutrition. Levels intake and alleviates meal planning variety challenges and spares me having to wander in the produce aisle eating the crap from unknown origins--- and the farmers' market where chinese relokes peddle chinese produce "labeled" organic.

Sorry if this more than you wanted to know.

No snow here yet but my shovels are ready!

Does anyone else think the impeachment charges were brought against Trump to protect Hunter and Xiden? That was the plan al[l along.

Dave (in MA)

If Xiden was a typo it was a good 'un.
