Chinese spy Fang like Confucius say of Swalwell:
“Good things no come in small packages.”

Pennsylvania officials on Thursday filed a blistering brief at the Supreme Court rebuking the Texas lawsuit seeking to overturn President Donald Trump's defeat in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, casting the move as using a "cacophony of bogus claims" to support a "seditious abuse of the judicial process."

I see we are at the “pound the table” stage, after “pound them with the law” has failed.

Good afternoon! I'm not sure if I'm in the Christmas spirit, but I've done some shopping at local small businesses and they really are appreciative. Of course, I'm still adjusting to Christmas lights wrapped around palm trees. :)

This is the Christmas poem read at our Christmas Eve every year as long as I hosted it:

A Christmas Poem

When Autumn's last breezes have yielded her leaves,
And icy winds swirl over porches and eaves,
Then comes the merriest time of the year,
With sleigh-bells and Santa, warmth and good cheer.

The memories crowd 'round and beckon us all:
Larry the lion, the Baby Dear doll.
The year that the pony was out in the yard,
The Christmas a boy slept in St. Francis' ward.

Yuletide in Guuantanamo or Milan,
A long-ago Christmas in Cold War Berlin.
A Christmas in Florida with Aunt Salome,
(The years we were scattered yet longed to be home.)

We are the happy, the chosen, the few
Who feast on both Chili and (yikes!) oyster stew.
We have the Scout Reindeer who checks on us all.
Our Christmas Eve is like Fezziwig's ball!

So raise high your glasses and let's give a cheer
FOr all of the good times we've had through the years -
For Christmases past and for those yet to be.
We're family forever, 'round our Christmas tree!

I feel like this is going to be a proble:

At the outset, more than a hundred years of Supreme Court precedent forecloses Texas and its amici’s theory that the Constitution requires legislative bodies alone to set election procedures. In Ohio ex rel. Davis v. Hildebrant, 241 U.S. 565 (1916), for instance, this Court rejected an argument in the analogous Elections Clause context that a state legislative body alone must structure the election process when the Court upheld a popular referendum that rejected redistricting legislation passed by the Ohio Legislature. Id. at 567, 569. Later, in Smiley v. Holm, 285 U.S. 355 (1932), this Court similarly held that a governor may veto a congressional redistricting plan, even though a Governor is plainly not part of a legislative body. See id. at 372-73. There, this Court emphasized that the function envisioned by the Constitution’s reference to state legislatures “is that of making laws,” id. at 366, and it is within “the authority of the state to determine what should constitute its legislative process,” id. at 372. More recently, in Arizona State Legislature v. Arizona.....

Presidential Message on Hanukkah, 2020

Issued on: December 10, 2020


During this holiday season, the First Lady and I send our warmest greetings to the millions of Jewish people in the United States and around the world as they begin the celebration of Hanukkah and the miracle that kept the flames of the menorah burning in the Second Temple for eight nights.

The candle-lighting tradition that began over 2,000 years ago is rooted in perseverance and faith—two virtues that are indicative of the Jewish culture and the Jewish faith.

This year’s observance of the Festival of Lights comes at a time when the unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel has never been stronger. Over the past four years, my Administration has stood in unwavering solidarity with the Jewish people. In recent months, we brokered historic peace deals between Israel and major Arab countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan, ushering in unprecedented opportunities for enhancing stability and prosperity in the region. As we enter this season of celebration and reflection, we must continue to build on this progress and work toward a brighter and more secure future in the Middle East and around the world.

Over the next eight days, families and friends will gather to carry on the time-honored tradition of lighting the menorah. The First Lady and I wish you all a joyous celebration. Happy Hanukkah!

Thanks to JOMever posted the lemon pie recipe.

https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/how-to-make-shaker-lemon-pie

I made two variants today; one with evil sugar and one with sucralose. Rather than slice the lemons super thin I put them in a blender. Then I added the sweetener and let them sit for two days on the counter to matriculate. I substituted an almond flour crust because I'm allergic to wheat. The recipe called for corn starch, which I did not have, and substituted twice as much of some white poweder in an unmarked bag that I prayed, Dear God, please let this be tapioca. Next time I will try making a keto meringue for on top. Pie wasn't like what Mom made, but not too bad for a first try.

If the SC blows off the Texas suit then I think it's time for a little martial law. Trump gave the courts a chance and the courts blew it. It's unconscionable to turn over the government to China compromised Democrats.

And the example of a governor vetoing legislation is not on point either.

I agree. The pieces are in place. DJT is trying to do this their way. If the result is some candy ass decision, then the system is irretrievably broken and further measures must be taken to restore the Republic. Just ask Abraham Lincoln.

We are fortunate that this conflict does not pit sections of the country against each other. Over the past year, the left has put on a display of what they intend to do. A huge swath of Americans and even some rational democrats will support whatever reasonable actions the President employs to stop the steal.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Top U.S. intelligence officials were so concerned heading into the 2016 election that the Russians were aware of and potentially manipulating Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s plans to smear Donald Trump as a Russian agent that they personally briefed President Barack Obama on the matter, newly declassified Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) documents show. CIA officials also requested that the FBI investigate Russian knowledge of the Clinton campaign’s collusion smear operation.

Newly declassified handwritten notes from former CIA Director John Brennan show that the U.S. intelligence community knew in 2016 that Russian intelligence was actively monitoring, and potentially injecting disinformation into, Clinton’s anti-Trump collusion narrative. The intelligence concerning Russia’s knowledge of Clinton’s campaign plans was so concerning to Brennan and other national security officials that they personally informed Obama of the matter in the Oval Office in the summer of 2016. The handwritten notes from Brennan were declassified by Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe and provided to Congress on Tuesday afternoon.

OL,

Isn’t it though! What I was referring to was a block of contiguous states opposing another block of contiguous states. To be sure, even in the civil war there were those who sympathized with the opposition. Most joined up geographically with their chosen side.

This situation is so much more complex. We already know what the left will do, so we can anticipate that the President will not leave it up to the states to deal with the problem as he did before. States like California will be a mess, however the results of the election hint that this may not be a problem. The people of California hate Newsom, his lockdowns and the legislature from hell, so I believe it is safe to say that they will not oppose anything that is done to restore order and the rule of law. Time will tell, of course.

I can't help but recall the early 1990's when the Japanese were flush with cash and were buying up real estate all over the country. Hotels, resorts, golf courses, the Rockettes, politicians — nothing escaped their buying spree. It didn’t last in the long run.

Of course, the Japanese weren't necessarily trying to take over the country and import state capitalism like the CCP. They just wanted to own it, haul in the profits and get a little pay back for the loss of face they experienced on the Battleship Missouri.

RattlerGator references two documents in his Twitter comments. The first is a descent by Justice Thomas joined by Justice Alito on the denial of a motion for leave to file a complaint in the case of Nebraska v. Colorado (https://t.co/pZbMeinE8P?amp=1), and an address (lecture) by Attorney General William Barr at the Federalist Society's 2019 National Lawyers Convention, November 15, 2019 (https://www.justice.gov/opa/speech/attorney-general-william-p-barr-delivers-19th-annual-barbara-k-olson-memorial-lecture). Both are interesting: the first on Justice Thomas and Alito's views on the jurisdiction of the court, and the second on the powers of and need for a strong Executive Branch.

RG references these in his determination on why the Court may rule in favor of Texas et al.
