At the Sunrise Café...

F6926F54-355B-4E09-BF4F-ADE4BB9A3919_1_201_a

... you can talk about whatever you like.

The sunrise today was, as you can see, the dullest possible sunrise — solid clouds and not even any interesting texture to the clouds. This is what I am calling a type #1 sunrise in my system of classifying sunrises. Yesterday's was also type #1, as were the sunrises of January 3 and December 27th. You get the idea.

To the Althousian altruists

As observers (not the recipient) of the recent outpouring of support and comfort regarding a heartbreaking tragedy here on this blog, we are encouraged by the many expressions of condolence.
Though we are in culturally/politically tumultuous and divisive times, and unfortunately due to passionate engagement, often fraught with rancor, you did not lose sight of what is most important-- our common humanity.
May God bless us all with peace and goodwill going forward, even as we strive to be true to our convictions

The warmth and sincere sentiments, prayers and condolences were exactly what was needed for a dismal winter day (season) in Wisconsin. Thank you.

Today our "courageous" dems/LLR's refused to bring up a GOP resolution condemning the dems beloved Islamic Supremacist terrorist leaders and praising the protesters calling for greater freedom and peace.

This action by the dems speaks for itself.

Chuck said...

For Althouse and Meade;

I recall your post from the earliest days of Trump-impeachment talk. When impeachment approval was hovering around 51%, and seemed to be going nowhere fast. Althouse had a post which concluded with a notion suggested to her by Meade, in which Meade wondered whether the nation shouldn’t be looking for something like 66% public approval for an impeachment-and-removal, since the Constitutional requirement on the Senate was a 2/3 supermajority to “convict” and remove from office.

We aren’t there quite yet, but now in separate and repeated polls, it looks like popular support for a Senate trial that includes the principal witnesses has reached 66%.

BREAKING: General Flynn to withdraw plea deal

BlackjohnX said...

I'm surprised no one has commented on Boris Johnson's remark regarding joining with Trump on how to deal with Iran.

Browndog said...

I’d love to hear him testify.

Respectfully, you don't count.

Original Mike said...

I'd love to hear Bernie address the fact that his supporters will be burning Milwaukee down if he's not the nominee. Glad I live 90 miles away.

Inga said...

“Respectfully, you don't count.”

Why? I’m a Democrat and a liberal. I probably think like the majority of Democrats and liberals. If I’m interested in what Giuliani has to say, I bet many Democrats are also interested. I also think Bolton should testify, call Hunter Biden, call Joe Biden. I think we all deserve to hear what they have to say.

Drago said...

Admiral Inga: " I also think Bolton should testify,"

Tough.

Trump should completely exert executive privilege across the board for all executive agency personnel. Period. Take him to court if you don't like it.

Besides, the dems said their case was a literal "slam dunk". Sounds good. Bring it on.

Browndog said...

I was referring to the democrats conducting the impeachment, and the upcoming trial.

You know, the one's that matter.

Browndog said...

I wonder if these same democrats think Bolton has forgotten all the nasty things they did to him when Bush nominated him for ambassador.

I assure you he hasn't.

Drago said...

BlackjohnX: "I'm surprised no one has commented on Boris Johnson's remark regarding joining with Trump on how to deal with Iran."

I mentioned it earlier today. I even referenced Johnson's call for a "new Trump Deal" to replace the "Obama deal" (giveaway to our enemies). Johnson emphasized the obama giveaway deal is officially dead (as it should be) and its time to move on.

In addition to Johnson's call for a new Trump Deal, the goverments of Germany, France and the UK have all indicated they are prepared to return to full sanctions against Iran as existed before obama gave the murderous islamic terrorists everything they wanted.

So, as we can see, in a "mere" (mere!) 7 days Trump has brought the entire western world in line against the murderous islamic regime that obama and biden supported with all their might.

The lefties/LLR-lefties here said the opposite of this would happen with the US becoming more isolated and the people of Iran coalescing around their islamic supremacist govt.

Yes, our lefties and LLR-lefties are just that moronic, stupid and unteachable.

Inga said...

“I'd love to hear Bernie address the fact that his supporters will be burning Milwaukee down if he's not the nominee. Glad I live 90 miles away.”

Meh, not gonna happen. If any angry Bernie Bro’s come to Milwaukee to cause mayhem we’ll just offer them free beer, a brat and Gemütlichkeit and they’ll leave happy.

Saw fifteen minutes or so of Pence speaking. Realized I had never seen or heard him speak that long.

Not too bad, made some jokes at Dems expense.

Not vicious, malicious, disingenuous, disgusting or vile like Democrats. Kind of a typical Republican.

Looking forward to final debate so as to solidify my choice of candidates in the primary. Hard hitting, pertinent, insightful, in depth questions anticipated, along with detailed, reasonable, truthful, original, thought provoking responses.

Original Mike said...

"I’d love to hear [Bolton] testify."

So, if Bolton were to testify in the basement of the capitol, behind closed doors, and McConnell wouldn't release the transcripts of his testimony, you'd have a problem with that?

Drago said...

Inga: "Meh, not gonna happen. If any angry Bernie Bro’s come to Milwaukee to cause mayhem we’ll just offer them free beer, a brat and Gemütlichkeit and they’ll leave happy."

Given your Iranian pronouncements, we can safely assume the exact opposite of what you assert will happen will actually occur.

Including Steve Bannon, you idiot. Steve wants witnesses, including both Bidens.

The Democrats and you think Bolton will help you as a witness. His testimony will blow up in your faces, if he testifies.

rhhardin said...

Veep season 7 is good. Great quips. It hasn't caught up with Trump zinger style, still playing on the difference between what's the politically correct pose and what pols actually calcuate with. Trump takes out the politically correct posture half, making that particular satire impossible. Also Trump is actually, underneath, well meaning, unlike these guys.

Veep seasons 1-6 were good too, so if you didn't like them, you won't like season 7 either.

stevew said...

I am undecided on the value of impeachment trial witnesses except for this: if there are any the list must include both Bidens. If not them then none.

Drago said...

BTW, anyone catch NBC and other legacy media organizations finally coming clean about Trump and the strike on Soleimani?

The new reports completely obliterated the earlier talking points Admiral Inga and LLR-lefty Chuck were spouting just days ago.

Trump originally wanted to target Soleimani in 2017, but the obama/biden "We Love Islamic Supremacist Governments!" holdovers in the federal agencies didn't act on it.

That was followed by these same types pushing Trump to take out Soleimani last spring but Trump did not want to escalate. However, Trump did give instructions that if Iran/Soleimani escalated the conflict by killing American's or if future attacks targeting Americans directly were in the offing that the US would take immediate action.

Soleimani and crew killed an American, attacked our embassy and were gearing up for other action.

Then Trump took decisive measures against him.

Needless to say, Admiral Inga and LLR-lefty Chuck (The FIGHTER!) have had NOTHING to say about these recent revelations from their own favorite news sources.

Unexpectedly.

Of course, no one is surprised as Inga still believes Carter Page is a russian spy and Kavanaugh is a gang rapist.

Further even though you are supposed to be the greedy one their entire economic program is taking your money rather than setting conditions so the economy grows, and all other (supposed) problems are solved with your money.

Why it's almost like everything else is a distraction and all they care about is your money.

@Drago, as far as most young lefties are concerned, they’re not moronic, not stupid, and definitely not unteachable. The problem is that they’ve learned from the wrong teachers. One key piece of my own evolution from ardent Bobby Kennedy supporter to ardent Trump supporter was going through BCT with all sorts of different people. Today’s college students meet a handful of carefully vetted affirmative action undergraduates and imagine that they’ve experienced “diversity.” Reality may be a hard to grasp concept for the likes of certain of the resident Althouse trolls, but most people quickly discover their need to live in the real world.

There's all kinds of people who truly believe Qanon is real. I see references all the time. I have my doubts. I think interpreting Qanon posts is on a par with interpreting Nostradamus. The stuff posted on crazydaysandnights is cryptic but real, sometimes revealed. Epstein is real. And look at the people involved with Epstein - a British royal and a former POTUS. Weinstein is real.

One of the early things Qanon interpreters said was Trump and Sessions were going after child pornographers and similar. I'm 64 - 4 years ago I didn't know anyone arrested for child porn. I'm now up to 3, including my former doctor. Seems that prediction was right on target.

Birkel said...

Royal ass Inga wants us to believe the conspiracy to deprive US citizens of their God-given and Constitutionally recognizes civil rights did not happen. But the IRS under Obama has to pay damages to the groups and individuals it deprived of civil rights. And the DOJ/FBI/CIA has definitely acted in a conspiracy to spy on US citizens. FISC judges have written as much in 2016, 2018, and again in 2019.

Denial of those facts is impossible.

Three leakers have been charged with felonies for leaking classified documents to MSM sources. Two were convicted. One awaits trial. Those were government employees operating in violation of the law against the civil rights of US citizens.

This cannot be denied.

And I will get bored long before I finish typing - from memory - the crimes the Obama Administration committed against US citizens.

Also, I want full declassification of CIA/FBI/DOJ communications about the coup attempt against a sitting US president. All the 702 searches regarding politically connected US persons should be declassified. All the Carter Page FISC filings should be public.

No redactions. Burn the FISC to the ground. Jail the bad actors.

@Original Mike

from our post the other nite

per @DevinNunes, the ICIG wants to claim his office is incompetent and didn’t know any better. That’s fine but he’s going to have to prove that’s the case.

The Democrats know there’s a problem with the ICIG. His testimony is the only one they haven’t released.

So no Inga, some make believe article from Juice Box Vox means absolutely nothing.

No. I’m trying to understand the appeal of the QAnon thing among Trump supporters and Trump himself. You don’t see anything strange about this?

The president’s recent retweets have conspiracists in overdrive. “Best case is we’re up getting a medal at the White House,” one QAnon luminary gushed.

DanTheMan said...

So is Lord of the Rings. Another work of fantasy.

The Dems say "Trump tried to use the power of his office to damage a political rival".

Which is EXACTLY what Pelosi just said she did to Trump.

Him, and his old boss, former DOJ NSD AAG Mary McCord who was the highest level person signing the 4 Carter FISA applications before they went to the AG or DAG for their final certification before being transmitted to the FISC. After leaving the DOJ, she joined Lawfare and went work for Schifty and his HSCI. IC IG Atkinson was her chief in-house attorney during that time, and is likely the conduit between Atkinson and Schifty.

Narayanan said...

I need to clarify:
Can Pelosi hold back any of the materials and persons Schiff and Nadler used to develop the articles?

Should not the first thing to do be to "mark up" House work product?

McConnell should remand back to Pelosi if case not ready which it clearly is not if more witnesses needed.

Drago said...

What, by the way, is a "QAnon luminary"?

Original Mike said...

I bet Admiral Mike Rogers would be a hell of a witness.

Just today, TODAY, Nancy Pelosi stated Mitch McConnell is a russian asset.

Just today.

Not some random nobody. The Speaker of the House accused the Senate Majority Leader of being a russian asset.

And several other dems in the House reiterated that charge.

Inga also still believes Trump and Carter Page are russian assets.

She also still believes Kavanaugh is a mass gang rape leader.

We clearly need more lectures on conspiracies from Inga.

Oh, and speaking of the Barrs, the fact that Epstein was hired way way back when by Barr's father for some teaching job means Barr had Epstein killed!

forget the fact that epstein started working after barr left dalton, now his ties to hoffenberg and les wexner are a little less easy to ignore as was his partnership with leon black homcho of telemundo

I was listening to Mark Steyn today and he made a salient point. He traces all the political strife of the last few years to the democrats inability to accept the results of the 2016 election. Ironic, considering Hillary's charge late in the campaign that it would be Trump acting like the child.

Drago said...

I think it would serve Inga well if she confessed that she fell for the hoax dossier conspiracy, the hoax Trump collusion conspiracy, the hoax Carter Page Russian spy conspiracy, the hoax Kavanaugh gang rape leader conspiracy, the hoax emoluments conspiracy, etc etc etc.

I don’t have Trump’s best interests at heart. I do have my fellow Americans interests at heart. The POTUS shouldn’t be retweeting such groups, it doesn’t serve the American people well, it’s based on nonsense. There is enough misinformation out there, we don’t need a POTUS to add to it.

Bruce Hayden said...

Everyone is posturing right now concerning what witnesses should be called in a Senate trial. The Democrats want to call Bolton. The Republicans are likely to counter with IC IG Atkinson as well as alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella. My guess is that there will effectively be a MAD (mutually assured destruction) compromise not to call witnesses. Of course, the House Democrats can’t figure out what they want to do - on the one hand they are supposed to vote tomorrow (1/15) on sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate. On the other, HSCI Schifty is talking about reopening his investigation. Should be interesting.

If I thought the charges were reckless, I’d give them no credence. What the rest of America is worried about is that a reckless president is tearing the nation apart. We’re not going to see eye to eye on eye on this, that is pretty clear.

Bruce Hayden said...

“Good question. The Daily Beast is a leftist rag. I would surmise from their word choice an acknowledgement by them they believe Q is real.... How else would someone get to be a luminary?”

Funny thing though is that Q appears routinely to be fairly accurate a lot of the time.

It very much appears that President Trump has some connection to Q. He has on numerous instances validated Q posts. One theory is that Q is Eric Trump. Another is that Q is tied to military intelligence. in any case, a number of prominent people on the left, Democrats and Deep Staters, are very scared of Q, surmising, probably for good reason, that their misdeeds are going to be exposed in the near future. Which, of course, is why Inga was dissing Q and his Qanons tonight.

buwaya said...

I am of course a broken record, with respect to US politics. I don't post much because there really isn't much to add.

But to reiterate- the only realistic approach to understanding current events, and much of history, is through what so many dismiss as "conspiracy theory".

The full truth behind the public phenomena we can occasionally glimpse is obscured, deliberately and circumstantially. We have a very poor idea of what is going on behind the curtain. We have very little to go on with which to create a worthwhile model of the ongoing conflicts.

And we are subject to constant deliberate manipulation through the media, pushing narratives designed by - whom? for what purpose? That part is also behind the curtain. All we can know, through observation of patterns and inadvertent information leaks, is that there are persons behind it, and that they have a purpose.

Qanon is no less, or more, manipulative than the MSM. It is pushing a different narrative, through a different and innovative method, using a different frame, and just occasionally providing additional facts, or changing the emphasis of certain facts vs others. There is no reason to dismiss Qanon's narrative and frame just because it diverges from the MSM.

One thing though that Qanon repeatedly emphasises is the need to do your own research, and find facts for yourself. Not something the MSM encourages! Our local ideal with respect to this bit of Q's advice, should be narciso, who does a superlative job of hunting "open source" information, and making connections that others don't.

The grand conspiracy of Qanon is not absurd. It is actually the well known analysis of hegemony that goes back to Gramsci, if not earlier. It has been elaborated by many others, "left" or "right" regardless, as it is not really ideological. Noam Chomsky and Angelo Codevilla are both really saying the same thing.

As for pedophiles and etc. - well, there certainly is a lot of smoke in that direction, no? This should not be a surprise. A decadent elite that feels secure in its impunity is prone to callous personal misbehavior among many of its members, sometimes on a grand scale. And about which the hegemonic power elite is prone to close ranks to protect, for the sake of mutual benefit. This is also a lesson of history.
