@McCormickProf
I'm not a Tulsi Gabbard fan, but I tell you: keep your eye on her. She's smart, articulate & ambitious. She's figured out how Trump beat the establishment of both paties in 2016 and built his base. She's making the adjustments. A key moment will be the party switch. Watch for it.

George is a snake. Member of the cfr, major pusher of communitarianism, kicked off the common core coordinated deception back in 2011. I was on the communitarian oriented webinar he did with rabbi jonathan sacks maybe a month before his death and then with robert putnam and the aspen institute's social weaving project maybe a month or so ago.

I did learn he is a big Aristotle virtues fan per his own touting, which is interesting as it actually fits with the Pope's Humanity 2.0 work I have been tracking and a deceptive https://www.independent.org/pdf/policy_reports/2020_09_23_greco_roman.pdf report another think tank is fundraising off of.

Recognising what was wrong with that 'Policy Report' (vdh's role seems to be correcting the bad historical info ) led me straight to this. https://aeon.co/essays/what-can-aristotle-teach-us-about-the-routes-to-happiness

It is Edith Hall being quoted at end of Policy Report.

I asked my husband why Macron closed the border, as it only hurts French truckers and he said "are you trying to understand the French?"

I like your husband's sense of humor, Buffy.

Less than 10% of the bill Congress passed goes to individual Americans.

Merry Christmas, Miss Catsmeat. Somehow or other I manage to catch your missives such as the one on this opening comment page. I’m glad you said something because I thought you might be in Florida. Good to know.

I see there was a little “birther war” redux last night.

I never had time to form an opinion on where Zero was born, I was too busy wishing he had a death certificate.

Tom Bowler

I always thought Zero started the whole birther issue himself, claiming to be born in Kenya for the advantages of being an exchange student. Easier to get into Columbia. Then there was that literary agency that that advertised him as an up and coming author, born in Kenya. They didn't make that up by themselves.

Hillary exploited it, but it wouldnt have had legs without zaphods contributions.

Buckeye

Well, one thing for sure, Zero is comfortable lying about anything to anybody.

Buckeye

Of course, most politicians have that lying trait.

They aren’t there to serve us, they are there to exploit us.

Tom Bowler

I'm sure Hillary pushed the story along, but I think the literary brochure predated that. The brochure was from the 90s if I recall.

Well, if we could prove he was born in Kenya, that right there would be foreign interference in an American election, and the whole dang DNC could be sent to Gitmo.

Good Morning! Merry Christmas Eve!

I have to go to Walmart because I have 2 more pups coming tomorrow! Now 5 - and they get stockings and seats at the table. Then time to brine the bird!

MM @9:02

Yes!!!

MissMarple2

Jane,

I go with the President and dream big. I would like a concession from Biden, and a public confession.

Tom Bowler

Actually, I think Zero was born in the U.S. I think he lied about being born in Kenya to get himself into Columbia. I doubt we'll ever find out for certain.

Another Bob

Can we send the DNC to Gitmo anyway?

Melinda

My Bishop Tony Evers told me that I can mail in my Mass attendance, so long as it arrives within 6 days after the actual MASS is over. No I.D. nor SIGNATURE required.

MissMarple2

Melinda,

Is that the video that the President linked in two parts last night? It sure pulls no punches and even suggests dropping Google and using Duck Duck Go.

It also calls most of the dems and media commies. About time, I say!

Tom Bowler

AB, he could have gotten a scholarship, I suppose, being a foreign exchange student and all. And I thought his grandparents were pretty well off, not to say they were rich.

I can vouch that you were there but didn't witness what caused the banning like I did with Miss Marple. I can certainly vouch that you're an honest man and if you say that's what happened I believe you. Plus ace could be very much a prick back then, from which he's been a lot better.

Threadkiller

But no matter how I did it, unlike the BC PDF, the elements wouldn't be scattered randomly,

It is obvious that you have no idea what was on each layer of the digital document posted on “whitehouse.gov.”

TK, I can no longer find a link to the multi-layer BC PDF. If you have one, please post it so people can look at the layers and decide for themselves whether my arguments hold water.

LOL! Do your own homework, PDF Expert. Haha!

but TK just can't let go of the "layers" business, and after a while it gets on my nerves.

Sounds more like you can’t let go of it. I assume what gets on your nerves is actually the fact that you are a very smart person that got over your skis on what you think transpired with the image and insulting my intelligence prior to begging me for help doesn’t feel like the win you were hoping for had you been better prepared to make me your nightly foil during the absence of TomR.

Homie don’t play that.

cathyf

That second Trump fraud commercial from MM’s 8:46 is a disaster. It claims that the ballots in the suitcases pulled out in the Georgia arena were from “Democrat precincts”. That is an absolute lie. Those ballots came from underneath a table, and as far as I know there is NO evidence at all of where they came from. And there are no precincts whose ballots are otherwise unaccounted for.

(Where is the camera footage showing the complete history of the tables from when they were set up to when the suitcases appeared? Why don’t we have the footage of when the suitcases were put under the tables?)

Buckeye

Well GUS,

If I disappear from here, you’ll know why:)

Buckeye

“I think Zero was born in the U.S”

Agree again.

But I’d sure like to know who paid his bills back then.

I’ll bet WE did.

Threadkiller

Was this what it was like during the "Birther Wars" period?

Pretty much. ;-)

Typically I would crack a joke and it would go thermonuclear within hours, then I would help with links and sources. But now, since it is the holidays and a decade of time has almost passed since the crime was committed, I have no intentions of filling the pages like the good old days.

Len, 11:19 p.m.: Holiday Movies! :)

I've been wishing for some great Holiday and Christmas movies. My husband and I watched Holiday Inn a few nights ago. I can remember going to that movie when I was young -- my sister and I sang together all of the time, and we had every word of 'Sisters' memorized. I usually enjoy that movie a lot but for some reason, not so much this year.

I am the 'Evening Entertainment Producer and Presenter' for my husband. I unwittingly took this job on when we first started 'streaming' movies and tv shows for us at night instead of him going to sleep in front of the tv and me trying to knit, crochet, decoupage, embroider, or read a good book. Anyway, every evening he hands me the remote, after he's clicked through 500 channels and can't find anything he wants to watch, and I try and find something he likes.

A couple of nights ago I decided to 'present' every movie I could think of that had Christmas in it so we watched 'While You Were Sleeping'. He seemed to approve of this one, so last night I snuck in 'The Lake House' (I like Sandra Bullock). He kept looking at me and finally asked indignantly 'What is this?' I said, 'it's a fantasy.' I was waiting for the scene where Bullock and Reeves dance to

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GdHVwII_zQ&ab_channel=mebei26

such a romantic few moments. :) The only thing, and it's a small critique, is that they aren't dancing or moving to the 4/4 rhythm they should be, but they are so lovely. :)

Anyway, we'll probably watch 'Holiday' with Jude Law and that pretty blonde. He'll just have to endure my choices the next few evenings. He won't watch 'It's A Wonderful Life' -- we've never watched it. ???

Christmas Eve is here! Thank goodness! My lovely ones will be here.

Merry Christmas to all jomers!

Mrs Buckeye has royal blood from Scotland, England, France and Austria.

Nonetheless, she has done a good job over the last 45 years convincing me she’s a “regular gal”:)

....Actually, I think Zero was born in the U.S. I think he lied about being born in Kenya to get himself into Columbia. I doubt we'll ever find out for certain.

I agree with this, and always have. I don’t think Obama ever considered his Kenyan lie as harmful to a run for President. I don’t think the lazy stoner ever had that aspiration until he was discovered by his future handlers.

Hillary thought she had him with the Kenyan nonsense but all she really did was provide the cover story for Obama. Once the “born in Kenya” garbage started yesterday playing in the Birther circles nobody was allowed to discuss his actual eligibility problem without always getting slammed with a stupid strawman.

The Dems never have much more of a master plan than rob the treasury, but they are very good at calling plays on the field and taking advantage of weak minds. That is how the fake birther narrative took center stage to cover the real problem.

Narciso

There is no chain of custody. What does that matter.

Buckeye

But sheldon is a royal idiot.

Yep, big time.

It was cover for the FM Davis carp and his being molested by his own father, IMO. The Kenya angle was for scamming Oxy and then Columbia.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Don't forget that Malik Obama posted a BC from Kenya that showed Obama was born in Kenya. It's still floating around the nets somewhere.

Buckeye

A very good friend was class mates with Gorsuch and Obama at Harvard.

They all thought Zero was a con artist.

He played the “poor, poor little black boy” shit to the max.

Threadkiller

Again. I agree.

It was cover for the FM Davis carp and his being molested by his own father, IMO.

I don’t know that I can disagree. But it definitely had people asking Odummy the wrong questions when they were allowed to ask any questions.

I found it a mostly unproducrive endeavour that ignores who obama was.

Mike in Houston: I enjoyed your music. :)

I started a youtube Christmas music list a few years ago -- for some reason I put this one on it -- again it's not Christmas, but the visuals are compelling, plus the music.

A taste of the lack of questions:


I just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates. Everyone except Barack Obama. As usual- he wasn’t there. Not even a video greeting. Not a personalized letter to his classmates. Nothing. But worse, no one at our 30th reunion ever met him. The President of the United States is the ghost of Columbia University.

I’m certainly no “Johnny come lately.” For five years now (since 2007 when it became clear Barack Obama was running for President), I’ve been quoted in the media as saying that no one I’ve ever met at Columbia can remember ever meeting, or even seeing, our college classmate Barack Obama. Don’t you think the media should be asking questions? Isn’t this a very strange story?

It was always obvious that he’s a con. What I will never understand is how anybody who wasn’t actively in on the con couldn’t see it immediately themselves.

Joan,

When I was in grade school they would show "Miracle on 34th Street" in the gym with a projector, the last day of school before Christmas vacation.

Catsmeat said that they were discussing the ethics of encouraging kids to believe in Santa Claus a few weeks ago when I mentioned our Scout Reindeer tradition, and your post reminded me of THAT just now! (Not to mention Santa being on the local TV station asking kids to sit on his lap and tell them what they wanted him to bring them!)

The neocon perspective was always a matter more of convenience and treading a path between what they were against more than what they were for, so it's no surprise how easily swayed they are by the prog zeitgeist.

From-me-to-we is the opposite of American enterprise and historically has been the road to hell the well intentioned are always repaving.

I haven't read a post in about a week so I hope all is well with everyone. I've been busy babysitting with my daughter having PT twice a week and also to give them a break to get ready for Christmas.
