I could see from the northern view through the window behind my computer monitor that the sunset must be going swimmingly.

So I scampered out front to catch the western view. Took the trouble to crouch in the middle of the street to include the reflections in the melted snow:

Awesome!

Wow. That is a simply stunning photo. We get some amazing sunsets here in the southwest, and that one equals anything I've seen down here - and the composition of the photo makes it. Excellent photo, Professor!

Red sky at night ...

traditionalguy said...

Woah! That's nice.

Original Mike said...

Yes, tonight was another good one.

DavidD said...

That's pretty; I'm glad getting the shot didn't cause you to get run over.

Jeff Gee said...

Great shot, but we still await the return of the fish-eye.

Meade, link doesn't work for me.

And I am always interested in 'painted ladies'.

I am Laslo.

Meade said...

Those would be nice colors painted on a lady.

Big Mike said...

Another way for a lady to get painted those colors is if a bank clerk accidentally hands you a die pack.

Or deliberately hands it to you.

Laslo Spatula said...

Thanks Meade!

I can really appreciate a woman's front porch.

I am Laslo.

You didn't build that photo.

Ummm, Ann shouldn't you be citing your camera model, with a hot link to its page on Amazon? Now that you're a retired law professor, you need to learn the ABCs of marketing (as expounded in Alex Baldwin's most memorable performance).

The lighting is like a Grimshaw painting.

TRUMP: I would love to meet with the Harward. I think it’s great, Harward. I think it’s great. I actually thought I had a meeting with Harward and he was all excited. And then he said, well, I can’t move, you might be bad for the country. I can’t have that meeting. I was all set to have the meeting. You know, we called him and called him. And he was all set. I spoke to him on the phone, very nice guy.
Wow. That to me was the biggest news of the press conference. Harward can't meet with the President? People are controlling him?
QUESTION: I hear he wanted that meeting with you as well.

TRUMP: He wanted it, but we called, called, called and can’t make a meeting with him. Every day I walk and say I would like to meet with him because I do want to solve the problem. But he probably was told by Libtards or somebody like that, some other lightweight. He was probably told - he was probably told “don’t meet with Trump. he's bad.” And that’s part of the problem in this country. 
I'd like to hear what Libtards and Harward have to say about that. Is the tone so hateful because those who want a friendlier tone are bullied?

Yabutt can you see Russia?

I'm not painting on a lady.
I'm just painting on a friend.

"Melted snow" sounds better than "the puddle in the gutter".

Lovely.

I'll take a whack at explaining the media-created "contradictions" in the Flynn affair. He calls the Russian FM and talks for an hour. The subjects are varied but at some point the Russian says, "I can't believe that bastard Obama levied sanctions like that! I mean he didn't do anything when we laughed at his reset button or invaded Crimea or forced him to take the missile defenses out of Poland."

And Flynn says, "Yeah that Obama is a real asshole and a lightweight too." And then the call goes into other areas of more interest to Flynn, so some weeks later when asked about the subject of sanctions, he say, "I don't think it came up." Pence asks him again the next day and he says, "We didn't discuss, far as I remember."

The call is illegally recorded by Obama's NSA, and shortly after Christmas he has Ben Rhodes leak that "Flynn is blackmailable" on the Russian issue. I heard that rumor way back in the first week of January, I think. Because the subject of sanctions would be clearly incidental to the call as a whole the Obama rats refuse to release the transcript but share enough with Trump to prove the word "sanctions" was spoken by one man or the other. Trump has to ask for his resignation to keep the issue from dragging Flynn down and making his new job impossible. Trump is clearly still loyal to General Flynn and admires him, says he did nothing wrong.

I think that's true. Rhodes and Yates, on the other hand, did break the law by sharing the NSA info. They and the other rats should be hunted down and prosecuted. Trump will make clear that he has the utmost respect for the women and men "on the ground" in intelligence but that the DC -- well Maryland -- bureaucrats are untrustworthy and contemptible.

Even if Flynn did discuss the sanctions at length in detail, so what? That's not against the law, unless you think that this is the first time in 218 years that the law should be used to prosecute someone. And if that's your opinion then what about Obama's NSC designate going to Russia for meetings before Obama was even elected in 2008? Shouldn't we dust off the Logan Act for those guys too?

Beautiful.

Every day I wake up, turn on my TV, and am inundated by the anguished collective cri de coeur of a media that only wants a "friendlier tone."

That's what happens. Swear to God Himself.

tim in vermont said...

Inundated is not the right word there... enveloped? Naah. Swallowed up? No. Surrounded? At least it doesn't mix the metaphor.

tim in vermont said...

gobsmacked?

Hagar said...

Mike above is correct.
But this morning's Journal still has a series of articles from the wire services with no mention of the FBI now stating there is absolutely nothing illegal or improper to be found in yhe transcripts of Gen. Flynn's telephone calls.

Also quite a coverage of the "Day without Immigrants" with the sympathy all on the side of the "undocumented Democrats" with no mention that "illegal aliens" is their proper designation.

This is agit-prop; not reporting.

The one the night before was great too.
