Winter has returned (if it left your vicinity as it did here this past weekend).

Outdoors is mostly black and white this time of year. Looks cold and wet - into your bones like.

Chuck said...

Okay so as Orin Kerr notes in this Tweet, this is nothing but a stone-cold lie from Trump. The vastness of this mendacity might make it hard to understand what a pure, simple lie this is.

Orin Kerr’s Tweet:

https://mobile.twitter.com/OrinKerr/status/1216753065950232576

Orin Kerr is a lawprof at UC Berkeley (like John Yoo). He’s been a law clerk for Justice Kennedy and a legal staffer for Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX). He leans conservative much of the time, is a contributor to the Volokh Conspiracy blog, and he is a founding member of Checks and Balances.

The other goofy Harvard Law Professor named Larry -- Lawrence Lessig -- has sued the NYT for some article that seemed to portray him as being sympathetic to colleges that took donations from Jeffrey Epstein.

It's pretty convoluted, but Larry won't win.

Larry came to our contention with his quixotic run for the White House in 2016. .

He is a goofball.

“Two-thirds of Americans surveyed want former national security adviser John Bolton to testify in the Senate impeachment trial, according to a Quinnipiac national poll of 1,562 voters released Monday.

Why it matters: Bolton, who is believed to have been a prolific note-taker with key insights into President Trump's decision-making on Ukraine, said earlier this month that he would be willing to testify if subpoenaed by the Senate. Popular support for Bolton's testimony could put pressure on moderate Republican senators to vote to call him as a witness.

The voters who want Bolton to testify include 39% of Republicans, 71% of independents and 91% of Democrats, per Quinnipiac.”

Chuck, If you buy your own insurance rather than through an employer they don't have to cover pre-existing conditions under the ACA. Perhaps you are more conversant with the medicare for all proposals the Dems are offering than I am but I don't think the details of supplementals, which you would have to buy yourself, have been worked out. Am I wrong on that? Kerr's tweet didn't address that.

As I have said repeatedly, Warren is the next POTUS.

Bloomberg cannot win. Bernie will not win. Pete could not even win a state-wide job. Biden will crash and burn about Iraq vote, busing, etc.

This is the 100 year anniversary related to women's right to vote. Warren is the beneficiary.

Trump will cry in Nov. He will cry so hard that it will drown the GOP into nothingness.

Cheers,

Sigh. I foolishly clicked on Chuck's Twitter link. Kerr puts words in Trump's mouth and then calls it a lie. Anyone with a grade 4 reading level can see Kerr misrepresented what a Trump actually said. So the real liars here are Kerr and Chuck.

I would happily bet that not one in ten American adults can tell you who John Bolton is and what his relevance to this matter is. Wait...one in ten is probably far too high. This is the sort of poll that discredits so many others.

Chuck said...

pacwest said...
Chuck, If you buy your own insurance rather than through an employer they don't have to cover pre-existing conditions under the ACA.


Under the ACA, you have it 100% wrong. The ACA requires it. Marketplace plans offered under the terms of the ACA provide it.

Now, maybe, you know something that I don't, and that in recent years, there have been offerings of private individual plans that don't cover pre-existing conditions. I don't know about that. Some sort of cut-rate plans?

But that is not the question. The questions are: Did the ACA require pre-existing condition coverage? It did. Did the ACHA (Republican House plan from 2017 that went down to bipartisan simple-majority defeat in the Senate) weaken pre-existing condition coverage? Yes, it did pursuant to the MacArthur Amendment. Has Trump proposed any subsequent plan that guarantees pre-existing conditions coverage? No he has not. Has the Trump Administration, via regulatory action, made it easier for states to recognize health insurance plans that do not cover pre-existing conditions? Yes, it has.

I might accept an argument from a Trump Administration official saying that, "We need to get away from the idea of universal pre-existing conditions coverage in private health insurance plans. Because it is just too expensive." That is a highly debatable notion.

But what I won't accept is Trump, lying to the nation and claiming that he is for pre-existing conditions coverage while the Democrats are against it. It's just a plain lie.

Let's put Trump's tweet-text up for everybody to see, okay?

….and, if Republicans win in court and take back the House of Represenatives, your healthcare, that I have now brought to the best place in many years, will become the best ever, by far. I will always protect your Pre-Existing Conditions, the Dems will not!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 13, 2020


And so at the sometimes-Trump-apologist National Review, Robert Verbruggen has a very brief but clear-eyed look at the Tweettroversy and concludes out of the gate that, "These Trump tweets have stirred up quite the reaction among lefties. I hate to say it, but the lefties have a point." My only quibble with Mr. Verbruggen is that it clearly is not just "the lefties," but also Trump's increasingly large and vocal critics from conservative circles, who are ripping Trump's recklessness on this subject. Witness the aforementioned Orin Kerr.

I see that Banned Commenter LLR-lefty Chuck is taking a little time out from defending islamic supremacist terrorist murderers (and obambi allies, big surprise!) to once again lie about and smear Donald Trump.

Not surprising really since LLR-lefty Chuck declared his 2 primary objectives here at Althouseblog were to lie about and smear Trump AND drive a wedge between Althouse and her readers.

Drago said...

Banned Commenter LLR-lefty Chuck: "But what I won't accept is Trump, lying to the nation and claiming that he is for pre-existing conditions coverage while the Democrats are against it. It's just a plain lie."

Gahrie said...

The only thing preventing it I can think of is the problem of casting/portraying Miles. Otherwise, it would be perfect for today's market. The Vorkosigan universe is woke, but not offensive about it. Shards of Honor would be a hit. A romantic action adventure with interesting plot twists, great action scenes and a heart. If they weren't tied to their Marvel characters...how about Josh Brolin as Aral and Scarlett Johansson as Cordelia? I suppose Peter Dinkledge would almost have to be Miles.

Inga said...

Drago, if Chuck were banned his comments wouldn’t be allowed to stay up. You should know that by now, but you can’t help your obsessive tendencies when it comes to Chuck or others you disagree with. Why don’t you stop bitching about Chuck commenting here and accept Althouse decision to let him, or myself comment. It’s her decision, not yours. Don’t you realize how odd your fixation with Chuck is?

Drago said...

Admiral Inga: "How many embassies were under imminent attack or should I say “eminent” attack?"

Inga and LLR-lefty Chuck will not rest until Soleimani is avenged!!!

Btw Inga, did you happen to catch the latest reports from all your favorite outlets that Trump approved whacking Soleimani months and months and months ago, thus utterly demolishing yours and LLR-lefty Chuck's "Trump acted rashly" talking point.

Did you ever go back and amend your earlier lies?

Btw, for those just tuning in: Inga still believes Carter Page is a russian spy, Trump colluded with russia and Kavanaugh was a gang rape leader.

Ken B said...

Chuck just quotes a nevertrumper he does not address what Trump really said vs what Kerr claimed he said.

pacwest said...

No, Chuck. The ACA does not mandate that insurers provide right of issue (pre-existing) unless bought through employers or the government subsidies (marketplace). As I stated above. I am pretty sure carry forwards ARE mandated though. Heaven help you if you skip a year of coverage after age 65. And, as above, I have not seen full details of Dem plans. Regarding anything I've seen from the Repubs or Dems I think they are both nuts in any economic sense. ACA falls into that category also.

But don't let me interrupt your Trump bashing with policy talk. Off to watch the game.

OM, I did feel I was wronged by Althouse, but that doesn’t matter anymore. Life is short, very short, last April I lost my 35 year old son. He was my only son, I still have my three daughters. I learned that love is what really matters, forgiving each other is a manifestation of love. Loving each other as spiritual beings in human form is very hard to do on earth. We’re still human and do foolish human things, but if we can realize that we are from the same Source, that one day we’ll be back to the Source, God, Heaven, the hereafter, whatever you want to call it and what transpires here on earth is important only in how much we can learn to love.

As a life-long Republicanish libertarian, I will simply predict that our first woman President will be Nikki Haley. Our first WOC (that's "woman of color" for the unwoke) President will be Nikki Haley. And, our first 2nd Gen American President will be Nikki Haley.

seriously my friends if you do not know that college football is a sad thing, where rich kids and sad kids who think they have to be something they do not want to be are manipulated by losers to waste some of their best years of life eating lots and lots to get big and fat to be little gladiators who nobody will care about 12 months from now, seriously my friends if you do not know how sad college football is, well,

just sit down with sackcloth and ashes and read the Bible and hope and pray someday you will be a decent human being

etbass said...

Sorry for your loss, Inga. I am sure nothing could be worse than losing a son or daughter.

I wonder if racist fopdoodles are likely to live past January 20, 2025 to witness the first day after Trump's presidency.

Anybody giving odds?

stephen cooper said...

i mean college football is fine if it is West Point or Navy where the players plan to be real officers and real men some day, like I was back in the day, but it breaks my heart to see these rich college coaches exploiting every kid they can to make them big and fat just to win meaningless college games, when those kids could have been doing so much better things with their time.

Saban gets a pass because he won so often, but most of those college coaches are fat loser middle aged men who are exploiting poor kids and encouraging those poor young men to get fat and big and who are giving those poor kids orders and it just makes me angry. They are lucky they did not try and recruit one of my sons.

narciso said...

Whats their alternative, i wager at least sone of these coaches came into the field through this venue.

SC, your theology is pretty far off the beaten path of any known religion . But equating indecency with college football takes it into a realm where no man has gone before.

stephen cooper said...

Their alternative, narciso, is to do what I did.

Find a job where nobody respects you but where you get paid.

There are a few college coaches I admire - the ones who went through West Point or the Academy - but for God's sake what kind of a man decides that what he wants to do in life is boss around poor kids on a football field?

Fuck Paterno, that bastard, and fuck every single college football coach living in his expensive campus house pulling down his big state salary making the poor kids knock themselves out in the summer heat in order to have a chance to win a fucking meaningless game that nobody will care about a few years from now.

That being said, Saban is a good guy, and football at places like the military academies and places like BYU and Notre Dame is ok.

But trust me, you do not want to face God at the end of your life and tell God you were one of the typical college football coaches of our day.

Or don't trust me, I don't care.

stephen cooper said...

etbass --- you make me laugh.

and God bless you for that.

etbass said...

Very touching story, Inga and one where it is easy to believe the Lord used the most odd circumstances for your comfort and blessing.

Inga said...

Sorry for your loss, Inga. I am sure nothing could be worse than losing a son or daughter.”

Indeed, yes. I’m so blessed to have my daughters and sons in law and grandchildren who were hugely supportive. I don’t know what I would’ve done without them. This something I posted to a support group I belong to. Hug your kids, tell them how much they are loved.
———————-
My son, aged 35 while in Maine, April 18, 2019, working as a contractor fell off a floating pier into a 41 degree river with flooding and a fast current. He was seen falling into the river by two co workers and they never saw him come up. Searches were unsuccessful and he was missing for an entire month. We had no body, we couldn’t get a death certificate, without that death certificate we couldn’t even get an obituary published in the paper. We held a memorial service with no body, we were in limbo regarding settling his affairs, all the while trying to wrap our heads around the fact that we’d never see our son and brother again in this lifetime.

He’d be turning 36 on May 17th and in despair I posted a birthday message on his Facebook page with pictures of him at various ages. I ended the post with telling him how much he was loved and how much we miss him and please come home to us. At 8 AM the next morning on his birthday, I got a call from my daughter who had just gotten a call from the Maine authorities, he was found!

A lovely couple who own the flower farm that lies adjacent to the shore of the river he landed on, found him that AM. They had been to that spot the day before and he wasn’t there. They said how unlikely it was that he ended up there as he went upstream instead of downstream and because of the way the river narrowed and channeled off there. They sent beautiful flowers they had just picked with his body when he went to the coroner. What a loving gesture after the shock of finding him. I believe he heard my pleas for him to come home and he did, on his own birthday.

My daughters went to Maine, we had him cremated and they saw where he landed in that beautiful sad place, visited with the couple who found him. The couple planted a flowering crabapple tree in the spot they found him as it blooms every spring around his birthday. My daughters brought home my son in a box supplied by the funeral home. I bought a beautiful urn and he sits on my bookcase, home with me forever.

Sadly the day after Christmas, his elderly cat, who I took care of suddenly became very ill and we had to euthanize him. More heartbreak, I feel like the last remnant of my son on earth is gone, his cars, his tools, his house, his cat. Gone, gone, gone. A good friend of mine reminded me that my connection to my son is eternal, not earthly, that was comforting.

etbass said...

Thanks for the choice, SC. I'll have to opt for not trusting you as I haven't heard anything to make me think you have a unique handle on spiritual matters despite your constant claims.

there is not a single verse in the Bible that I do not believe is true.

Trust me, when I say that the college football coaches of our day are almost all degenerates, I know what I am talking about.

Apparently, Clemson gives lifetime free tuition to their football players; which is The Least They Should Do.
While you're playing football, you're not taking and Real classes, so at least Clemson actually gives them a scholarship, they can use, later

BudBrown said...

You know back in the day every kid in Tampa dreamed about playing for the Gators.
It was Gator country - in a boat a mile out the game would be on a radio, lost in camping country there'd be the game on some radio. Back in the mid sixties gators had a middle linebacker went about 150lds, hey i could be a middle linebacker, me and Ray Nietzsche.
Guy down the street, not too big, worked his butt off and was a walk on ended up starting a few games for the Gators. Another guy I played a lot of sandlot with, he walked on ended up all american. Another kid he started practice kicking in jr. high school he ends up kicking for them. None of them were poor kids.

Thanks Narciso, losing a loved one suddenly is a trauma to one’s psyche. The group I belong to has one story after another of sudden deaths of loved ones, sometimes it’s stressful reading these accounts, but it serves to remind us how fragile life is and how much we have in common in our humanity.

Inga said...

“My sincere condolences, Inga. I can't imagine that heartache, for you, and for his sisters.”

Thanks Laslo.

Big Mike said...

It’s my theory that no liberal woman will be elected President until enough time has passed for conservative women to forget how Sarah Palin was treated in 2008. I scarcely know every conservative woman, but I know more than a few and this is what I get from them. Will a dozen years be enough? I think not.

So Bernie is probably right as regards Warren and that Minnesota woman who eats salad with her comb.

I really have to ask. Was there ranch or bleu cheese dressing on that salad? Did Senator Klobuchar later comb her hair and walk around looking like Cameron Diaz in “There’s Something About Mary”?

etbass said...

Took the Tigers awhile to get their stuff together. But I think they are going to show that they are clearly the best in college football this year.

narciso said...

I thoughtthe koudelkas were all female, elena would have to be like olivia munn just spitballing here.

But cordelia would have to be younger then scarlet, it couldbe done in a prequel

Actually, now that I think about it, the perfect movie for the times would be John Ringo's Live Free or Die. Ryan Reynolds as Tyler Vernon. Release it on July 4th. Cut scene of the trailer is Vernon's speech when the aliens threaten to destroy Washington D.C., followed by a CGI of the strike. I bet it would set records, across the Anglosphere.
