Bernie bro tries to burn down GOP office.

By no means an endorsement of Nate Silver predictive models but something very interesting today- the nomination model shows a tie between Bernie Sanders and ‘nobody’ winning the nomination on the first ballot.

In other words Bernie and Hillary are tied!

Violent Leftist slaps a 15 year old in the face.

"Police said the incident happened Tuesday as Bradley exited the voting location inside the high school and was walking by a Trump campaign tent occupied by several supporters. As he passed by the tent, police said, Bradley slapped a 15-year old juvenile across the face and then assaulted two other adults who attempted to intercede.

Bradley is also accused of throwing Trump campaign signs and attempting to knock over the campaign tent, police said."

History of the penis and the clitoris, Gresham lecture
https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/history-penis-clitoris

The penis gets most of the time because the clitoris was only discovered in 1559, by Renaldus Columbus.

A reason to mark Columbus day.

"The penis continues to be measured in inches long after most of the world has gone metric."

Personally I hope the tweets keep coming. His lunatic need for attention is the only thing keeping the Dems in the race at the moment.

Trump says John Kelly must 'keep his mouth shut' after ex-chief of staff said Vindman did the right thing. Trump said Kelly has a "military and legal obligation" to "keep his mouth shut."

Oh the irony.

Earnest Prole said...

His lunatic need for attention is the only thing keeping the Dems in the race at the moment.

Peace and prosperity, with the opposition on the verge of nominating a man who makes George McGovern look like a conservative. Trump: How can I make this more exciting and turn what should be a landslide into a close race?

Inga said...

“Oh the irony.”

Now let’s see how Trump will try to retaliate against Kelly. Trump might be making himself some enemies in the military.

mccullough said...

Vindman did the right thing. He showed that Trump understands Ukraine better than The Interagency Consensus.

And that they all knew about the Bidens profiteering in Ukraine, but said nothing.

The problem with The Deep State is that they suck at their jobs. Explains the last 30 years. We’re stuck with shitty leaders overseeing third stringers.

Barr likes Trump, and respects him. Think about it.

“Jim Jordan called me crying, crying, groveling, on the Fourth of July, begging me to go against my brother, begging me, crying for half an hour,” DiSabato said. “That’s the kind of coverups going on here.”

He said that Jordan called him repeatedly, in a panic. “I had to have my lawyer call him, telling him to stop calling me.”

Adam DiSabato said that he had also reported the abuse to Jordan, who was the assistant coach at the time, and others associated with the university’s wrestling team. “They did nothing,” he said. “They told me they went to their superiors [who] told them to be happy where we’re at and keep our mouth shut.”

DiSabato made his feelings about Jordan explicitly clear. “He’s thrown us under the bus, all of us,” he said. “He’s a coward. He’s a coward. He’s not a leader. He’s a coward.””

It does not matter from the point of view of "the news" and history ==== Kelly - and me, and you ---- are all headed to historical obscurity.
What matters is whether we are loyal and kind and virtuous.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! . . .

"The last shall be first and the first shall be last" ---- one of my favorite quotes from the Bible.

God loves us all and loves us all the way we are but loves us too much to let us stay that way.

or .....
(from page 92 of "Love Alone: the way of Revelation", a short book by H. U. on Balthasar, a young fellow born in Switzerland a dozen decades ago, we have this, at footnote 1, and I quote in full .....)

"God himself, as Creator and Redeemer, thinks and acts [with a view to the future] in this sense: in the light of the final image that 'hovers before [H]im God loves us [all], not as we are, not on account of our merit, but as we will be as a result of his gift (Prosper, [at] the Second Council of Orange, c. 12, Dz. 185)."

Yancey Ward said...

Since it was lost at the end of a thread from this morning, I wanted to repost this since it was a must read comment by Lee Moore. It was about the Stone/Barr/Trump "scandal".


Y'all gotta remember that this is asymmetric warfare.

If Nixon wants his enemies' tax records, he has to do something himself to get them - under the eyes of the IRS bureaucrats, who are all Democrats and who are going to go the press. If Obama wants his enemies' tax records, he doesn't have to do squat. The IRS bureaucrats will send over anything interesting without even being asked. So the question of going to the press never arises.

Want a politically motivated prosecution of an opponent or a troublesome journalist ? Good luck getting away with that Mr Republican President. But if you're a Democrat President it'll happen automatically - that's what the autopilot is set to.

Want an ally who's in the legal soup to get off ? If you're Trump your best chance - though still a forlorn hope - is to tweet*. But if you're Obama you don't need to do anything. It'll happen automatically. Did Obama have to tweet to get that computer guy off ? The guy who actually did obstruct justice by deleting Clinton emails when he knew they were under a subpoena ? Of course not. The DoJ gave him a soft - nay positively moisturising balm - plea deal.

"Tell us everything you know and we won't charge you with obstruction."
"I'll take that offer."
"So what do you know ?"
"Nothing."
"Well, great, that about wraps it up. You're free to go."

Or Awan or Wolfe. Which happened during the Trump Administration. I say "during" rather than "under" lest anyone imagine that what the DoJ did pre-Barr had anything to do with Trump. It was still a cabal of his enemies. And indeed it still is, minus Captain Barr, who is alas not in control of his ship.


*btw the idea that Trump woud have been better off to whisper his concerns about Stone quietly to Bill Barr instead of tweeting, is TOTALLY NUTS. Wanna avoid people thinking you're secretly pulling Bill Barr's strings ? Hey have you considered secretly pulling Bill Barr's strings ?


Me again- couldn't have written it better myself.

Yancey Ward said...

And this, also, from James Sarver in the same thread bears a repost. It begins with a quote from Althouse blog post, then addresses it.

"There's an equality value in following the rules for everyone, famous or unknown, connected to power wielders or friendless."

Nobody seems to appreciate the irony inherent in taking this position in the Mueller/Trump/Stone context. McCarthy states explicitly the ridiculous predication of the entire case and then dismisses it because rules is rules. As does our esteemed host apparently.

Rule of law is not just the narrow context of rules being followed. Every tin-pot dictator ever has had a system with rules that they followed, pretending at rule of law.

Congratulations to narciso for his newfound linking abilities. Nonetheless, I will continue in my efforts to remain as uninformed as possible about the plots and counterplots of Trump and his enemies. It's exhausting. For the record, it does seem that Hunter Biden's dealings in the Ukraine seem far more suspect and just obviously wrong than those of Trump. I'm not going to study the issue further.....The Bojack Horseman cartoon series on Netflix is pretty good and far more worthy of your attention. It's not exactly binge worthy. I could only take one or two episodes at a time, but it's very good. Some of the family scenes are more harrowing than anything in O'Neill. The fact that they are acted out by cartoon animals with funny wisecracks only makes them bleaker. As Bojack points out, Strindberg is pretty good, but he's no Ibsen. SPOILER: The penultimate episode is a dark bath of nihilism and blackness swallows all. Then it turns out to be a dream, and nothingness turns to the daily grind of emptiness. This ultimate ending left room for a sequeal and was true to the spirit of Bojack.

Lovely photo, I especially like the composition. Still winter.

Trump didn't threaten anyone. He criticized another of the coequal branches of government. Nothing wrong with that. Barr says Trump's tweets are a hindrance, not helpful to the execution of his duties, which I understand to be an assertion that Barr is not doing Trump's bidding. Trump tweets are accomplishing what they are meant to, the magician's tactic of distracting one's gaze.

Browndog said...

That works only if you're using a laptop running the “right” browser. (And no, I'm not giving up my iPhone and carrying a laptop around with me, then running Chrome.)

Using html hyperlinks, a more general strategy to use for seeing in advance where the link will take you is to “hover” your mouse over the link (that allows you to see the hover-over text for the link, if any, at the same time). On, e.g., an iPhone, simply hold your finger on the link for a couple of seconds, and the link and hover-over text will be shown (along with a subsidiary open menu).

<a html=""

then close the bracket, add the text you want highlighted and close the a by putting /a in brackets.

As for the slanders of Jim Jordan, you must understand that a College level Wrestler has no need for any protection from a coach or athletic trainer. They would simple attack them. That's all they do all day long: attack bigger, quicker and stronger men. I am serious. The abusive coach would need the protection.

if one has such a chance, please take advantage ....

TELL THEM YOU KNOW HOW MUCH GOD LOVES THEM
