    1. Bitterlaw says:

      First!

    2. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “WITHOUT including Crimea, the govt in Kiev can now lay claim to controlling perhaps 55% of its own territory.”

      Its more like aound 80%-90%.

      The size of the Crimea is about 10,000 square miles; the size of the Ukraine is about 233,052 square miles — the size of Texas. It has a population of 43 million. The breakaway eastern Donbass region consists of only about 10% of the Ukraine. Ukraine is a huge, vibrant country with a separate culture from Russia.

      The Crimea is populated by Russians and other ethnic groups, and historically was not part of the Ukraine. It was Khrushchev who arbitrarily included the Crimea in the Ukraine. Its population voted in an plebiscite to be included in Russia, and historically that is where it belongs. Likewise the 10% of the Ukraine that is part of the Donbass in southeast Ukraine could become part of Russia — however there is a significant part of the population in that region that is Ukrainian or of other ethnic background, and would actually like to stay in the Ukraine.

      By the way, the Ukraine is about double the size of Poland. Its army is 288,000, and has been shown to be willing to fight. We need to be sending them the required weaponry to do so.

    3. jason says:

      SDC, you are going to confuse the HHR isolationists, the Putin appeasers, Neville Chamberlains and “peace in our time” morons with facts.

      Putin doesn’t care about the Dombass region, he only cares about re-creating the Soviet Union. Standing by while he does should not be an option.

    4. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      My feeling is Putin is testing Biden like Khrushchev tested Kennedy during the Bay of Pigs. Putin senses Biden is weak and mentally decrepit, and like the rest of the world was shocked at Biden’s incompetence in Afghanistan. Why not provoke a crisis and see what sort of concessions he can get from the moron who is now U.S. president?

      The Germans threw him a loop by delaying the NordStream pipeline. He also has to worry that if there was a conflict with the Ukraine, the Belarus population might rebel and support the Ukraine. It’s up to Biden to act decisively now, which he may not be capable of doing. It’s frightening to think about. Trump would have resolved things with one blunt phone call.

    5. Gordon Allen says:

      SDC. The point I made earlier about Putin’s army of 175,000 being WAY too small to over run and occupy Ukraine.
      The entire standing Russian Army is barely above 400,000 men. It’s strength lies in its nuclear capability, which is scary

    6. jason says:

      The point I made earlier about Putin’s army of 175,000 being WAY too small to over run and occupy Ukraine.”

      Isolationist “peace in our time” BS goal post moving alert.

      Neville Chamberlain thought giving Hitler Czechoslovakia would appease Hitler just like Neville Allen thinks partioning the Ukraine would appease Putin.

      The US has to start a massive offensive weapon airlift to the Ukraine now so Putin understands an attack on Ukraine’s territorial integrity is an act of war and will be very costly in lives and financially.

      Putin is not going to use nuclear weapons to recreate the Soviet Union, he is just going to bully the Neville Chamberlain’s of the world into appeasing him.

    7. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      5. Agree Gordon. Putin is saber-rattling. He thinks he can get concessions from Biden and the new German leader. When Biden unilaterally dropped U.S. opposition to the NordStream gas pipeline, it was another sign to Putin that Biden was weak.

    8. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The Germans are playing hardball with Putin.

      “The construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline was fully completed on September 10, 2021. In order to start pumping gas, the Nord Stream 2 operator needs to get approval from the German regulator. The certification has now been stopped, as the operator Nord Stream 2 AG, headquartered in Switzerland, needs to register a subsidiary in Germany.

      This week, the Federal Network Agency of Germany announced that a decision on the certification of the Nord Stream 2 operator will not be made in the first half of 2022. The Russian side has repeatedly stressed that Nord Stream 2 is a commercial project and is being implemented jointly with European partners…”

    9. Gordon Allen says:

      SDC. You’re right. Putin does NOT have the conventional capability( which is too expensive to maintain) to launch major offensive operations against any sizeable defending force; Crimea didn’t have that anyway. Ukraine, which has a 250,000 men, and an indigenous armament industry, is too tough a nut to swallow whole for him like Crimea/
      Supporting them(Ukraine) with economic sanctions against Russia, and targeted weapons deliveries is helpful.
      China is rich enough to maintain large conventional forces, and IS capable of swallowing Taiwan(vastly smaller than Ukraine) up, and is much the greater threat than Putin.
      Jason, with his myopic love affair w China(truly Chamberlain like-although the latter is somewhat unfairly criticized) will blow up at that. Big Whoop.
      I could give him some useful literature gained from a 40 year membership in the Air Force Association, and 25 years in The US Naval Institute, or from my library of WW 2 books to read, but as he and Bitterlaw believe themselves experts in things that they aren’t( an irony actually shared by those verbal contestants) they wouldn’t accept.
      i agree generally with your analysis.

    10. Cash Cow TM says:

      I have often heard people say
      “Crimea river”.
      *****************************************

      Where is the “Crimea river”?

    11. Bitterlaw says:

      I could give him some useful literature gained from a 40 year membership in the Air Force Association, and 25 years in The US Naval Institute

      Just curious, Gordon. How many years did you actually serve in the military? I was not permitted to serve but I would not tout my years of watching documentaries and lectures as equal to service.

    12. jason says:

      40 years in the Air Force Association?

      LOL.

      Neville Allen is a joke if he thinks that somehow that makes silly isolationist stick your head in sand deny History rants more palatable.

      Neville Allen learned nothing from History. All he does is repeat shallow “peace in our time” mantra without actually having to do any thinking.

      And nobody is more for defending Taiwan here than I am, so Neville Allen can take his “jason love affair with China” and GFH.

    13. jason says:

      “and IS capable of swallowing Taiwan(vastly smaller than Ukraine)”

      Wow, where do I start with this stark display of ignorance?

      If “size” was the main consideration, Israel would be screwed.

      Someone should tell Neville Allen that Taiwan is an island, that its military is much more sophisticated than the Ukraine’s, and that the logistics of invading Taiwan are exponentially more complex than invading the Ukraine.

    14. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      9. Yes, agree with you Gordon that Putin is likely bluffing.

      Apparently Putin is now in a tizzy over the Germans delaying the NordStream pipeline. Putin might be realizing that being a buffoon may cost him several billion in gas revenue. The Green Party is a major player in the new German government, and is likely very happy to shut-off the pipeline as a matter of ecological purity. Little Greta should be scolding evil polluter Putin for not only attempting to destroy the Ukraine, but the whole planet as well

    15. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      On a good note, Europe is now importing a record amount of U.S. LNG instead of Russian natural gas. There presently are 10 large LNG carriers in route from the U.S. to Europe now — these are massive ships carrying huge amounts of chilled natural gas.

      “Russian exporter Gazprom PJSC isn’t booking Yamal-Europe capacities because its buyers, mainly in France and Germany, didn’t make requests for the supplies, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.”

    16. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      15. Oops, was incorrect on the number of U.S. LNG Tankers headed to Europe, it’s a lot more:

      “More U.S. LNG Cargoes Head to Europe to Ease Energy Crisis
      By Sergio Chapa
      15 U.S. LNG cargoes declare European ports as destinations
      11 cargoes with undeclared ports also seem on path to Europe
      The number of tankers crossing the Atlantic with U.S. liquefied natural gas that declared Western European ports as their destinations jumped 50% in just 24 hours as the continent’s energy crisis deepens.

      They are now 15, up from 10 on Wednesday, shipping data compiled by Bloomberg show.”

    17. jason says:

      CNN is desperate. OMICRON HAS KILLED AT LEAST 1!

      “The Omicron variant of coronavirus is spreading quickly in several countries where it has been discovered. Even if it causes only mild disease — and that’s far from certain— that could still mean many people end up in the hospital and dying.

      It’s killed at least one person in the UK and put 10 into the hospital.”

      Wow, let’s shut it all down.

    18. jason says:

      On a good note, Europe is now importing a record amount of U.S. LNG instead of Russian natural gas. There presently are 10 large LNG carriers in route from the U.S. to Europe now — these are massive ships carrying huge amounts of chilled natural gas.”

      You mean the natural gas the Dems are trying to get the US to stop producing.

    19. jason says:

      Give her the Lack of Self-awareness Award for 2021.

      Kamala Harris say her greatest failure so far is “not getting out of DC more”.

    20. jason says:

      Putin is likely bluffing”

      Believing that is not a strategy.

      Calling his bluff is a strategy.

    21. jason says:

      Next Neville Allen will claim he has a friend with over 5000 hours playing Call of Duty, which makes Neville the premier expert in military strategy here at HHR.

    22. Gordon Allen says:

      Heh Jason numbskull. Would you like my AFA Air Force Association Number or a copy of my Certificate of membership for 40 years?
      Give me your mailing address so I can send you a certified copy so I can prove I sent it to you,so people here can know for sure what an ignorant blowhard BS artist you are.
      If your still living in your parents basement, give me their address.
      This site has become one laden with argumentative morons like yourself; I previously thought Bitterlaw was at the apex,but I was wrong.
      You take the cake. If you want to verify further information on me I’ll give you what you want,PROVIDED you do likewise,so others can fairly judge.
      You truly are the definition of an A hole. Congratulations on that.

    23. Bitterlaw says:

      Did Gordon serve in the military or not?

    24. jason says:

      Heh Jason numbskull. Would you like my AFA Air Force Association Number or a copy of my Certificate of membership for 40 years?”

      Zzzzzz….

      I don’t care if you have a number or not, neither does anybody else, the fact you think that being member of an “Air Force Association” somehow makes your vapid, shallow and idiotic rants any more credible is what I am mocking.

      Stick your “Association” memberships up your ass.

      Or maybe go play war games on your computer and then come back here and claim your are an expert in military strategy.

    25. jason says:

      And by the way, Neville Allen, did you answer Bitter’s question yet?

      How many years did you serve?

      Hint: member of the Air Force Association doesn’t count as “serving”.

    26. jason says:

      I previously thought Bitterlaw was at the apex,but I was wrong.”

      Sorry, Bitter, but such is life. One day at the apex, the next day dethroned.

    27. jason says:

      You truly are the definition of an A hole”

      Sorry Bitter, it is not your day.

    28. jason says:

      40 year membership in the Air Force Association, and 25 years in The US Naval Institute”

      There is a rumor Neville Allen was in the Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Army and Marines, although there is a question on whether having a “Semper Fi” bumper sticker on his car actually constituted being in the Marines.

    29. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – Do you want to join? I did not see any requirement to have actually served in the Air Force.

    30. Cash Cow TM says:

      Left WV this afternoon where the temps were in the 60s and flew to Minn./St. Paul where it is cold and snowing. Walt let Cow have the window seat.

      Spending night here and then drive the 4 (or more) hours north to near Mason, WI. Low temps there will be below zero.
      *****************************************
      Parking lots at Dulles Airport were pretty full of cars (flew out before Christmas and are not returned yet). But the human traffic was light.

      Mask mandates everywhere. Very few people not abiding by them. But saw no maskless people wrestled to the ground or tazed.

      Saw more people travelling with dogs/little pups than I remember. Some pooped on the carpets of the hallways at the airports.

      They better hope this Cow’s bowels and bladder do not cut loose.

      Walt packed his cigars in non-carry-on luggage. But lighters and matches are (again) banned items and cannot be carried on or put in suitcases. At the hotel, Walt can’t find any matches, the rental SUV is push button start, turn a dial to change gears–very different from what he is used to. Had trouble figuring out how to lock the vehicle.

      So Walt is half pi$$ed–about the rental car setup, his smokes, inconvenience of airports travel in general, during the flight a crying tot on lap of a young mom in next seat up, had a lot of trouble finding a parking place at the hotel.

    31. Cash Cow TM says:

      Cow is in MN, but has not seen anything of lisab yet.

    32. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Russia announces withdrawal of 10,000 troops after drills near Ukraine.”

      Putin and the new German Chancellor are going to be discussing the Ukraine and other issues in January. If things go well, assume the German Chancellor will call and wake Biden up from his nappy and update him on what happened.

    33. jason says:

      Jason – Do you want to join? I did not see any requirement to have actually served in the Air Force.”

      What is the incentive?

      It hasn’t helped Neville Allen.

      Of course, that IS a low bar.

    34. jason says:

      I can see Walt misses the good old days when he traveled by horseback, slept in inns, and cavorted with bar wenches.

    35. jason says:

      Bitter, the requirements to join the Naval Institute are very stringent and only for the crème de la crème of military strategists.

      You need $65.

    36. jason says:

      Give me your mailing address so I can send you a certified copy so I can prove I sent it to you,so people here can know for sure what an ignorant blowhard BS artist you are.”

    45. mnw says:

      The Elizabeth Warren effect:

      Per the website Legal Insurrection (quite a respectable outfit, imo), census data shows the Native American population in the U.S. has increased 86.5% in the last decade, between 2010-2020.

      This is not due to natural increase or immigration. This is entirely due to white people going all Elizabeth Warren in order to get in on the racial spoils, i.e., college admission preferences.

      The losers here are ordinary white Americans with college age kids, who can’t or don’t play these games.

      On a personal note, I know an atty, who was a Presidential appointee under Obama, who spent $20000+ on genealogical research, to establish that he/she was part Native American. This person (& his/her spouse also) are as white as freshly-fallen snow.

    46. mnw says:

      P.S. to post 46:

      I forgot to add:

      to the extent that any genuine Native Americans benefit from racial preferences, they are the primary victims, I suppose.

      Warren just pioneered this scam. To my horror, people think it’s a GREAT idea, apparently.

    47. jason says:

      mnw, you should have your attorney friend speak with Tsla, who is an expert on getting government freebies due to his “disadvantaged” status. He has taken several DNA tests to try to increase his black ancestry above 7%–I assume that he figures that if he studies a bit harder he can get to 12.5% and claim “octoroon status” and some extra cash–but I’m sure that he hasn’t spent anywhere close to $20,000 on his “credentials.”

      If oil goes to $100/bbl from $75/bbl, that would be a one-third increase, not a 25% increase.

      Even though oil prices are way off their 2021 highs because of COVID/OMICRON, consumer spending is quite robust. The point being, if the Biden regime tales its foot off our necks by easing restrictions, oil consumption will likely return to recent highs, I think. AND the regime just very quietly eased some of the restrictions, i.e., the COVID quarantine time.

      Here is how the moron Biden caved in to Putin on the NordStream pipeline:

      “Initially the Biden administration’s approach was one of continuity, copying the firm line adopted by Trump and urging Europe not to make itself vulnerable to Russian energy blackmail.

      But by May, the line had softened. German diplomacy was at work. On 19 May Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, waived sanctions on Nord Stream’s chief executive, Matthias Warnig, chair of Nord Stream 2 and a close friend of Putin, explaining he wanted to give time for diplomacy to work. By 7 June Blinken said the pipeline was a fait accompli, and on 21 July, a week after meeting Merkel at the White House, Biden lifted sanctions altogether in a farewell gift to her.”

      “During an interview on Tuesday with former President Donald Trump, conservative commentator and activist Candace Owens questioned the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines.

      “Oh no, the vaccines work,” Trump said. “The ones who get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don’t take the vaccine. But it’s still their choice. And if you take the vaccine, you’re protected.”

      “Look, the results of the vaccine are very good, and if you do get it, it’s a very minor form. People aren’t dying when they take.”

      Woke golf pays up.

      Of course they expressed satisfaction. Trump got a fat check and the PGA saved themselves from having to write an even fatter check.

      “Former U.S. President Donald Trump has resolved a dispute with the PGA of America over the golf association’s decision earlier this year to pull a major professional tournament from a Trump-owned golf course, the PGA of America said.

      In a press release, the PGA said it had reached a confidential settlement with the Trump Organization that resolves legal claims stemming from its decision in the wake of the storming of the U.S. Capitol to shun Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

      “While the terms of the settlement will remain confidential, representatives from both the PGA and the Trump Organization expressed satisfaction with the agreement,” the press release stated.

    102. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      101. The irony is Trump would have pushed people to voluntarily take the vaccine. I don’t think he would ever have supported mandates. So much controversy would have been avoided, and we likely would have had higher vaccination rates.

      “I parked to check Google Maps and suddenly there was this guy with a gun forcing me out of the sleigh,” a tearful Claus told police. “I didn’t have time to dig through my sacks of toys to get out a Red Ryder BB Gun and defend myself. It all happened so fast.”

      “Ugh, I had over seven PS5s on that thing!”

      Claus says the sleighjacker pushed him out of the sleigh and then took the reins, taking the magical flying vehicle on a joyride through the skies of Philly. Investigators believe the sleighjacking was random and that the perpetrator simply intends to get it over the Mexican border where it can be sold for parts. The reindeer may be taken to Canada where they’ll be made into jerky.”

      Trump favors the vaccine, but also opposes mandates — common sense position:

      “The tweet seems to reflect the awkward position many outspoken supporters of the former president have found themselves in as a result of his recent vaccine advocacy. At an event with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in Dallas on Dec. 19, Trump confirmed that he had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and revealed that he had received a third shot, a comment that prompted boos from some people in the audience. In another interview with conservative commentator Candace Owens later that week, Trump continued to tout the efficacy of the COVID vaccines, which were developed under his administration.

      “The vaccine is one of the greatest achievements of mankind,” Trump told Owens. “And if you take the vaccine, you’re protected. The results of the vaccine are good.””

      Harry Reid was a seedy politician. He was effective at enriching his family. Reid would get money allocated for wind and solar projects in Nevada, which his son’s law firm would then represent in obtaining permits and approvals.

      One particularly putrid example of Reid’s family cronyism took place in Reid’s home town of Searchlight. Residents opposed a wind farm on sensitive land adjacent to the town. Reid’s property was in the southern part of Searchlight, and he made sure the wind projects impacts to his property’s views was removed before supporting the project:

      “Views from Reid’s property, however, won’t be ruined. That’s because when Duke Energy scaled the project down from 161 turbines to 87 turbines, it removed the proposed turbines near Reid’s property on the west side of Searchlight. According to maps presented by Duke Energy and the BLM, only the turbines proposed for the town’s east side remain. While Reid will still have his “beautiful views of the mountains,” some turbines will be just 1,000 feet from private property lines.

      Meanwhile Reid’s son, Rory, had no problem voting for the project as a County Commissioner, despite his law firm representing the applicant:

      “Reid’s son, Rory, the former Nevada gubernatorial candidate and now a partner in the Lionel Sawyer & Collins law firm, is also connected to the Searchlight Wind Project. Lionel Sawyer & Collins represents Duke Energy, as well as several other renewable-energy companies championed by Harry Reid. This did not prevent him from voting for the project in 2010 as a member of the Clark County Commission.”

      Anyone who has ever watched Nevada politics is amazed at the blatant and often open corruption.

      Thankfully, an environmental lawsuit by a local Indian tribe and residents killed the project. The area is now part of the area of the proposed Avi Kwa Ame National Monument — its an amazing beautiful area with some of the nicest Joshua Tree forests in the nation. Both Searchlight and Boulder City, which are the nearest towns, both strongly support the new national monument.

      Statement by Former President Donald J. Trump on the Passing of Former Senator Johnny Isakson
      DECEMBER 19, 2021

      STATEMENTS AND RELEASES
      Melania and I and the entire Trump family are saddened to learn of the passing of Johnny Isakson, the distinguished former United States Representative and Senator from Georgia.

      Senator Isakson was a colleague and a friend. We served together and traveled together, and found common ground built on mutual respect for each other and the institutions that govern our nation.

      Johnny was a proud Republican, he put country before party, and valued political combat.

      In Johnny’s memory, let us heed the wisdom he offered upon retiring from the Senate, where he urged everyone to devote less energy to describing problems and more effort to fighting for the right solutions.

      Johnny Isakson was a patriot and a gentleman.

      Georgia has lost an indispensable son.

      America has lost an exemplary leader.

      Our prayers are with Dianne and the entire Isakson family.

      I think you agree with me that the hemorrhaging of support for Republicans in the suburbs due to Trumpism is very bad politically for Republicans.

      Those are the voters Republicans need to win back in order to win nationally, instead of having them vote Democrat for President as they did against Trump. We did see in the down ballot races and in Virginia and other places this year that there are a lot of people willing to vote for Republicans, but not for Trump. The rural and small town voters who are somewhat new to voting Republican are unlikely to go back to being Democrats any time soon.

      I never prosecuted these cases at either the state or federal level. However, at the state level, case law was that a good faith mistake as to age WAS a valid defense– & it was a jury issue as to whether the mistake was in good faith.

      I’m not too happy about the phrase “falling” for some defense, btw– I made my own decisions based on what LE brought in. For every case I issued, I probably declined four.

      I don’t know how old the victims were on pedo island when the bigshots (in whom Tina is interested) had sex with them. I don’t know what jurisdiction pedi island is in.

      The age of consent varies from state to state. from 16 to 18, with 17 being the norm.

      Again, as a practical matter, if the age of consent is 17, & the victim is 16… you’re just not going to find many prosecutors who are interested in charging that case.

      While the Biden Troll gives Andrew Cuomo a pass while trolling about Trump being a “bad person”, the policies he voted for are causing millions of poor people to have a hard time.

      No wonder he doesn’t want to own up to his vote.

      “The coronavirus pandemic has led to a new era of inflation inequality, economists warn, in which poor households bear the brunt of rising prices.

      That’s because a bigger portion of their budget goes toward categories that have spiked in cost. Food is up 6.4% over the past year, for example, while gasoline jumped a whopping 58%. And now many people are facing those higher prices as federal stimulus programs fade away.

      “They’re essentially looking to stretch a dollar most days,” said Chris Wimer, co-director of the Center on Poverty & Social Policy at Columbia University. “It’s going to lead to difficult choices between putting gas in the car or paying for your kids’ child care or putting food on the table.”

      A recent analysis by the Penn Wharton Budget Model found that low- and middle-income households spent about 7% more in 2021 for the same products they bought in 2020 or in 2019. That translates into about $3,500 for the average household.

      By contrast, spending by wealthy households went up by only 6%.
      Shift in spending for the wealthy

      This disparity is typical during inflationary periods, said Kent Smetters, who directs the Penn Wharton model. But since the 1980s — the last time prices rose this quickly — higher-income households have shifted more of their spending away from goods and toward services. For example, in 2020, food was 12.7% of the budget for the top 5% of households, compared with 16% of the budget for the bottom 20%.

      Meanwhile, pandemic-related production disruptions have driven up the costs of commodities that poor households rely on.

      “What they happen to be buying has been hit harder by the supply crunch,” Smetters said. “It’s broader-based than in the past.”

      The findings dovetail with an analysis of credit and debit card data by Harvard Business School economist Alberto Cavallo at the start of the pandemic. He showed that low-income consumers experienced price increases that were roughly double those of wealthier ones.”

      I have seen zero evidence Maxwell personally enticed and transported minors for purposes of sexual exploitation.

      The person who “transported” them was Epstein. The person who exploited them was Epstein.

      In my view, Maxwell was an employee following orders and about as responsible as the pilot or the cook. The pilot “transported” the minors, the cook fed them.

      Maybe she could have been charged as some kind of accessory, if there is such a thing.

      In my view she was railroaded and the charges for which she was convicted were bogus. The prosecutors put on a dog and pony show using a lot of emotion and innuendo and very few witnesses and facts.

      Because that moron JeffP was here saying the testimony was “damaging to Trump” (it wasn’t) I actually read it all.

      I think the people here jumping on the conviction bandwagon just read the MSM narratives and not the actual testimony, which I found contrived and unconvincing, at least as it pertained to Maxwell.

      All the fed statutes define “a minor” as a person under the age of 18.

      To convict Clinton or Bill Gates of sexual exploitation of a minor, my first quick take is that they “either knew or recklessly disregarded” the victim’s age, & that they traveled with intent to have sex with a minor(s). On its face, this looks like a tough burden for a prosecutor to meet.

      I don’t understand what type of federal criminal charge(s) Turley envisions for the men who were Epstein’s guests on pedo island. And I don’t really care. While I never prosecuted a federal sex crime, I knew those who did prosecute such cases for nearly 30 years. I can tell you this: the age of the victim needed to be closer to 12 than 17 to create a case that would be indicted.

      And now, my interest in this area of federal criminal law is officially exhausted… How ’bout those Blues, huh?

      In her closing argument, Maxwell’s lawyer told the jury that her client “knew nothing about Epstein’s depraved appetite for young girls.”

      1) I’d give 5-1 odds that Axne loses– she’s got a district Trump carried; this is a dreadful looking year for DEMs– much worse than last time; and even more importantly, a Selzer poll earlier this year showed the DEM brand imploding in IA. Remember that poll? Everybody was shocked by it, but because it was Ann Selzer, nobody questioned it.

      2) I’d give even better odds that Harrell wins. She knocked off a DEM incumbent in 2020. Now Harrell has the Biden regime’s open border record, & the regime’s anti-fossil fuel policies, to use against her (as yet unknown) DEM opponent– last time, all Harrell had to run on were her suspicions about these things. Now she has facts, not suspicions. In 2020, the then-incumbent DEM ran away from Biden as hard as she could. She even ran ads explaining why she opposed Biden’s energy proposals– and Harrell still beat her.

      Conclusion: Cook’s reported state of play looks too DEM-friendly to me. Imagine that! If Cook is this messed up on Axne & Harrell, it makes me wonder how many other races he messed up that I HAVEN’T followed.

      In her closing argument, Maxwell’s lawyer told the jury that her client “knew nothing about Epstein’s depraved appetite for young girls.”

      Zzzzzz….so what?

      Is Maxwell on trial about “what she knew about Epstein’s sex life”?

      That is what I would have asked in the jury room.

      Maxwell would be stupid to admit she knew anything about his “depraved appetite” because THEN the jury could say well why did she stay on then.

      That is another reason why I think this trial was a travesty, Maxwell has been convicted as a stand in for the real criminals.

    238. jason says:

      Maxwell was not Epstein’s nanny nor his moral counselor.

      The prosecution presented her as Epstein’s “spouse” and partner in crime, but actually she was an employee, not a partner, and the fact that she slept with him or not should not have been material to the case.

      “Procuring 14 year olds” is not a crime if it is done for legitimate reasons. If Epstein was holding a teen pageant on his island that would not be illegal. When Epstein introduced one of the teens to Trump at Mar-el-Lago hoping to get into Trump’s pageant, that was not a crime despite what JeffP the moron said.

      The entire case is based on the word of three women who stand to make a lot of money as victims about something that happened decades ago. Nobody else in the households over many years saw Maxwell do anything illegal.

      I didn’t see the whole trial, but I read at lot of the testimony. From what I read, I would never have convicted her.

    239. mnw says:

      “Is Maxwell on trial for what she knew about Epstein’s sex life?”

      Yes. She was charged as a co-conspirator of Epstein’s in multiple counts. IF she knew that Epstein was a sexual predator, that would be evidence that she was in fact Epstein’s co-conspirator IN A CRIME, and not an innocent dupe. Such evidence would be relevant as to her guilty knowledge (“mens rea”) of the conspiracy’s criminal objective, I think.

      disclaimer: I’m not a judge & did not go to Yale Law like Meldrin!

    240. jason says:

      So it sounds to me like if she admitted “knowing Epstein’s depraved appetite for minors” she might as well plead guilty.

      So I don’t think it was “dumb” to deny it.

      But of course I am not arguing about what a co-conspirator is, what I a skeptical about are the “co-conspirator” charges to begin with.

      I don’t think she is a co-conspirator. Epstein was the billionaire, not her. She worked FOR him, not WITH him.

    241. Meldrim says:

      #240, mnw, you wrote “I’d give even better odds that Harrell wins. She knocked off a DEM incumbent in 2020. Now Harrell has the Biden regime’s open border record, & the regime’s anti-fossil fuel policies, to use against her (as yet unknown) DEM opponent– last time, all Harrell had to run on were her suspicions about these things. Now she has facts, not suspicions. In 2020, the then-incumbent DEM ran away from Biden as hard as she could. She even ran ads explaining why she opposed Biden’s energy proposals– and Harrell still beat her.”

      If Harrell was running for reelection in the same district in which she won in 2020, then I’d agree 100% with you and say that she’d be the prohibitive favorite. But NM Democrats gerrymandered the congressional districts so that the western part of Albuquerque is now in the same NM-02 as the most of southern and southeastern NM (including Harrell’s home turf), and the more Republican portions of Harrell’s current district are in a NM-01 that includes the rest of Albuquerque (and is the most heavily Democratic district in the state) and in a NM-03 that includes hyper-Democrat Santa Fe and Taos and is composed of mostly new territory for Harrell.

      Harrell represents the current NM-02 and most likely will run in the new NM-02, which, as I mentioned, includes her home base and has more of her old CD than any other of the new districts. The partisan lean of NM-02, as measured by 538.com, went from R+14 to D+4, an 18-point swing, and the CD now favors whoever wins the Democratic primary. The NM-02 went from being a comfortably Republican CD that only elected one Democrat in the past several decades (Torres-Small in the toxic environment for Republicans of 2018) to a CD that leans Democratic about a much as the traditionally Democratic NM-03 (which went from D+14 to D+5).

      Herrell can win the NM-02 in 2022, and a strong GOP candidate could win NM-03 as well, but in each case the Democrat likely will be favored. In each of those districts, the Republican nominee needs to capture a much higher percentage of the Hispanic vote in 2022 than Republicans did between 2016 and 2020. I am hopefully optimistic that the swings towards the GOP that we’ve seen among Hispanics during the past two years, particularly in rural areas, will continue this coming year and that NM (and AZ and NV) will catch up with TX’s gains, but I wouldn’t call Herrell’s reelection bid a “toss-up,” much less “leans Republican,” just yet.

      Marxists are so touchy:

      “Readers of the British newspaper, The Guardian, are accusing the outlet of deactivating an online poll that asked readers to vote on “Person of the Year” after it became apparent that J.K. Rowling would handily win.

      “Tell us: who is your 2021 person of the year?” ran the headline, posted on Dec. 15, with the subtitle, “Time Magazine chose billionaire Tesla boss Elon Musk – but who would be your choice?” A short time later, when Rowling was far and away in the lead, the voting form disappeared, as did the results. A message in small print stated, “This form has been deactivated and is closed to any further submissions.””

    250. jason says:

      If the ignorant masses don’t pick the right person of the year, the exalted left wing elites will pick for them.

    251. jason says:

      My predictions for 2022:

      Amoral Scumbag will continue to ignore the fact Biden is a train wreck as President and will continue to drive by to talk about Trump, Fauci and me.

      The Biden Troll will continue to drive by and fail to own up to the fact he promoted and voted for the far left agenda, radical policies and woke culture the Dems are implementing and now owns them.

      Bitter will continue to pretend the crime stats, drug culture and political corruption in Philadelphia do not actually pertain to Philadelphia, just to Bad Philadelphia. To justify this, he will say Rittenhouse Square has a lower crime rate than other areas. Move on.

      Bitter will continue to disparage the deplorables and the working class by saying they live in cultural deserts and that he would rather be shot than live close to any. At the same time he will say that yes, he would like to see them in the R party, as long as they follow whatever the suburban country club elites tell them they should follow.

      Walt will continue to spend 20 hours a day doing chores, maybe as a way to redeem himself for all the pillaging he did during the Crusades.

      NYC will continue to claim WE ARE WINNING on immigration as millions more cross the border and will continue to give Trump a pass on everything he attacks other politicians for doing. There will be no conservative principle he won’t sell out for Trump. He will also continue to claim that if you don’t support deadenders, you must not support the primary system. Chuck Schumer will continue to view him as a valuable asset and propaganda tool and will send him a “Chuckie Loves You” mug.

      Tina will continue her zero tolerance RINO policy and 100% litmus test every R and every statement and vote. As a result, at least 512 newly minted RINOS will be created in 2022. She will also create 63 new nicknames, and 54 will be funny.

      wes will continue to insist the Dems could not have stolen PA, NV, WI, MI, GA and AZ because they did not steal NC. This will continue not to make sense to anyone else, but here at HHR we
      encourage independent thinking.

      Meldrim will continue to insist fascism and discrimination are ok as long as practiced by private businesses. He will continue to claim that “show me your papers” is actually “freedom to run your own business”. He will propose the unvaccinated and those with natural immunity wear
      a yellow Star of David on their clothes to make it easier to practice freedom.

      Neville Allen will continue to claim it would have been better for Hitler and Stalin and Japan to have divided Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America among themselves because it would have brought “peace in our time” to the US. Yes, they would have killed tens of millions more in ethnic and ideological cleansing, but it would have been worth it and the US would still have Canada to (fair) trade with.

      Tgca will return and claim that during his absence he became an expert in 28 more fields.

      Happy New Year!

      250 SoHope

      SoHope is correct. 6R-2D, same as last time.

      Meldrin & I discussed MO redistricting at length here.

      I first argued strongly that MO would leave the AA DEM Congressman in KC (Wheat) alone, because there has been a de facto bargain in place forever– the DEMs get 2 AAs, & the GOP takes the rest. Both sides liked this, & it avoids claims of racial gerrymandering by the GOP.

      Meldrin, & the Wise Men at RRH, talked me around– I changed my mind. I thought that the GOP (which controls everything in MO) wouldn’t leave money on the table for once.

      WRONG! When you look at how the MO GOP behaves, it has been timid even though MO has turned ruby red.

      Quite a disappointment. I will trust my own instincts about MO in future– and not Meldrin’s thoughtful & persuasive map.

    256. jason says:

      He is just a regular viper.”

      Wow, everyone in a magnanimous mood, the compliments just keep coming.

    257. jason says:

      Well at least mnw has abandoned the “AA District” BS, in favor of the more accurate AA DEM Congressman.

      It seems like the GOP is taking a more long term approach to redistricting, shoring up R districts rather than trying to maximize the short term gains. The rationale is that in the future the GOP could well lose some of the marginal seats in a less favorable environment. It is a risk averse strategy, no doubt, but not every year is going to look as good on paper as 2022 does.

      I would have gone for the MO seat, personally. I would not go for a lot of seats that only look good for 2022 however.

    258. mnw says:

      HOW did I “abandon” the “AA District BS,” exactly? Did Wheat get a skin change that I didn’t hear about? I must’ve missed that. I’d wrongly assumed he was still black, I guess. And now he has a much safer seat! They’re stripping out the most Trump-y parts.

      The GOP state legislator, who announced the new proposed GOP map, made implied reference to WANTING to keep the AA District in KC, fwiw. “We think this new map will KEEP MO’s Congressional delegation looking like MO does.”

      I didn’t “abandon” one GD thing.

    259. Bitterlaw says:

      If it makes Jason feel better, if I am killed in Philadelphia, there will be many deplorables around my body. There are more deplorables in the city than in Jason’s Nowhereville.

      Deplorables are good people. Jason lives in a cultural desert. Both can be true.

    261. jason says:

      HOW did I “abandon” the “AA District BS,” exactly?

      Because you consistently lied about this being an “AA District” until you were called on the lie.

      Hope that answers your question.

      Ok, I will try better to expose your absurd attempt to whitewash the crime and corruption in Philly and your blatant hatred for deplorables next year.

      I am sure there is always room for improvement.

    272. Bitterlaw says:

      More than of looking and Jason has no posts where I expressed hatred of deplorable. Of course, he found many where expressed respect for them. Of course, only one of us supported the deplorables’ candidate twice at the polls. Hint. It was not the Deplorable Whisperer.

      So Jason admits there are no posts that prove his BS claims that I hate deplorables. Glad we resolved that before 2022.

    286. jason says:

      There are hundreds of posts where you disparage deplorables.

      I am sure more are coming in 2022.

    287. Bitterlaw says:

      If there are hundreds of posts, it should be easy to find one.

      I noted that the goalpost moved from hating to disparaging. By midnight it will be expressing mild disdain.

    289. jason says:

      By midnight it will be expressing mild disdain.”

      Stop begging.

    290. jason says:

      It’s ok Bitter. I don’t think you are an intentional deplorable hater. I think its a product of your upbringing and where you live an work. In other words, you are culturally conditioned to disparage deplorables.

      It is not your fault.

    291. Bitter says:

      I did not admit to disparaging anybody. I just pointed out you gave up on the word “hates” because you have no proof. Just like you have no proof of disparagement.

      Let’s cut to it. Do you think you are a deplorable? Would deplorables think you are a deplorable or just a wealthy international businessman trying to pass as a man of the people. The irony is that the deplorables and I voted the same way in 2016 and 2020. You did not.

    292. Bitterlaw says:

      Will Tgca appear at midnight?

    293. jason says:

      I didn’t claim to be a deplorable. I don’t even claim to share all of their politics, but at least I don’t pretend their views don’t exist. I just mock your superior and disparaging attitude against working class people which I think are important to the future of the R party.

    294. jason says:

      Here is the deal. We don’t agree on what a winning and long lasting coalition for the R party should look like.

      You want to pretend that somehow we agree. We don’t. I am perfectly willing to admit that my view could be wrong and yours could be right.

      Let’s leave it at that an celebrate the New Year, hopefully it will be better for all of us.

    295. jason says:

      Since it is New Year’s and we need to start the year on a positive note, I will take back the “hate deplorables”, even though I meant in a a political sense.

    296. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t like myself. I don’t consider myself superior to anybody. I wish I had useful job skills. I can’t be a plumber, mechanic, carpenter, etc.

      I can’t recall seeing very many more bizarre statements from a national political figure than this one:

      AOC: “Republicans have a strange kind of sexual frustration because they can’t date me.”

      Wow! What can one say about THAT? She used to be a barmaid/bartender, so maybe it’s leftover saloon patter from those days.

      A possible first runner-up:

      Gen. Wesley Clark, during his 2004 campaign for President:

      Clark: “I’m for abortion until the head comes out of the womb.”

    332. Wes says:

      Also, Walt, Dems didn’t have a majority in both houses of Congress for the whole four years of Carter’s presidency. Republicans assumed majority control of the Senate on 1-3-81 while Carter didn’t leave office till 1-20-81. Thus, for the final 17 days of the Carter Administration, Washington had divided government.

      GWB actually had GOP majorities in Congress for longer than four years. From 1-20-01 to 6-5-01, Republicans had the same type of nominal majority in the Senate Dems currently have while Republicans again had more Senators than Dems had from 11-22-02 all the way till 1-3-07.

    333. Wes says:

      Who doesn’t want to date a crazy communist Congresswoman, Mnw? She only looks like the donkey from Shrek when she laughs and sounds more vapid than the stereotypical bimbo cannon fodder in an ’80s slasher flick.

      Then again, I’m sure she’s great in the sack. Just make sure her hands are in sight at all times unless you want Basic Instinct reenacted.

    336. jason says:

      Clark is a moron. First in his class at West Point and a Rhodes Scholar, still a moron.

      Shortly before the New Hampshire primary, Clark fielded a question about rival John Kerry’s Vietnam experience. “With all due respect,” Clark noted, “he’s a lieutenant and I’m a general.”

      The general was trounced by the lieutenant in the primary.

      Let’s start out the year with some controversy:

      “The paper – published December 30th by the German agency the ‘Robert Koch Institute’ – included information on the vaccination status of 4,206 individuals who contracted the latest variant of the virus.

      Four thousand and twenty people who reported contracting Omicron in the study – which equates to 95.6 percent of total cases – had received at least two doses of COVID-19 vaccines. Twenty-eight percent of the Omicron-positive group had also received a third dose or “booster” shot.

      Just 186 people contracting Omicron were unvaccinated in the entire sample, showing that vaccinated individuals were over 21 times as likely to contract the COVID-19 variant.

      On December 14th, The National Pulse declared the COVID-19 situation worldwide a “pandemic of the vaccinated”.”

    339. jason says:

      “A look at party identification reveals more Independent voters favor disobeying Presidential mandates – 42% to 31%. For Republicans, it’s 49% – 26%, and for Democrats, 26% say it’s ok to disobey, with 49% believing it’s wrong.”

      Color me skeptical 26% of Rs believing in Biden’s mandates.

      Maybe they polled the Biden Troll and Amoral Scumbag.

    340. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      342. Hope that Tgca did not have a run-in with the lastest viral variant, which is highly transmissible and running rampant in urban areas. I know a lot of people who have caught it, but no one who got very sick from it.

      Then again, Tgca may simply have decided to take a break from posting to enjoy the holiday season.

      For single men on this thread and married men who wish to participate and lesbians, please answer the following:

      1-Is AOC attractive?
      2- Is your criticism of her vast intellect due to your carnal desire for her?
      3- With respect to above #2, would you change your answer if she said yes to an indulgence with you?

      My answers:
      1- Good figure combined with a horse face. Not a good mix. Ask Stormy Daniels

      The Biden Troll is an “analyst”?

      Who knew?

      “Critics blasted President Biden on Wednesday after he posted a tweet boasting about the state of the US economy and referencing “one analyst” who touted him as having the “strongest first-year economic track record” in half a century.

      “We’re ending 2021 with what one analyst described as the strongest first-year economic track record of any president in the last 50 years,” read the message from the @POTUS account. “Let’s keep the progress going.”

      A Grabien transcript search found the word “Trump” was uttered on the show 11,668 times from Jan. 20, when Biden succeeded Trump, to Dec. 30. As for Biden, his name was mentioned just 4,710 times, nearly 2.5 times less often on Wallace’s program, which airs weekdays from 4-6 p.m. ET and features a mixture of reporters and left-leaning pundits.”

      “We are surprised by these results, as ‘tossing Fauci in a volcano’ wasn’t even one of the options on the survey,” said a spokesperson for Pew. “Thousands of people just wrote that in.”

      Health experts say the trends in public opinion are “very concerning” and may point to decreased trust in lying political hacks who dress up in lab coats and claim to speak for science.”

      AOC scores decently in the “political world scale” but is nonexistent on the “saw her at the club scale” unless it’s 2:01am, I’m *%$#faced, and she’s asking to see my snow globe collection at home. In that case I’m sure we’d both be disappointed in the morning.

      Her objective stats are:

      If you didn’t already think the NFL was a woke joke, evidently Antonio Brown took off his jersey and gear, flung it into the stands, ran half naked into the end zone, did some jumping jacks, gave the peace sign, and ran into the tunnel.

      Probably won’t be fined, after all players should be allowed to “express their feelings”.

      “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the buck-toothed Member of Congress from Queens, is upset people have noticed her hypocrisy. She’s on vacation in Florida while her district is being crushed by COVID cases. She once attacked Senator Ted Cruz for doing the same thing with a trip to Mexico, now she’s pretending it’s different when she does it.

      Moreover, she’s pretending every Republican critical of her hypocrisy simply wants to sleep with her. In response to a picture of the Member of Congress who could eat a sandwich through a fence and her boyfriend, AOC tweeted, “It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women, & LGBT+ people in general.”

      It couldn’t possibly be that she’s a fraud – the “woe is me” brat with the six-figure salary driving a Tesla, living in one of the most expensive buildings in DC, pretending to be just a former bartender scraping by – now, could it?”

      From the liberal The Hill:

      “After Barack Obama’s 2008 White House victory, Democrats believed they had created an unbreakable “coalition of the ascendant” voters, driven by increasing participation of minority groups and college-educated women. But recent left-wing economic and policy woes have brought about a demographic realignment that threatens to sink Democrats’ chances not just for 2022, but for the next several decades.

      4 in 10 Republican voters approve of Jan. 6 panel, survey finds
      As President Biden’s approval ratings have tanked with nonwhite voters, the Democratic Party increasingly has become dominated by liberal white women who virtue-signal with suburban lawn signs and then henpeck people in supermarkets to pull their face masks up over their noses. Or, put more simply, the Democratic Party is at risk of becoming a party of “Karens.” Recent polling suggests that Hispanic and Black voters are abandoning the party — many of these individuals are being harmed by the surging inflation, anti-business COVID measures, and exploding crime rates in urban areas brought about by a year of left-wing measures.”

    395. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Last night, I used the AOC Doctrine on a Liberal woman in a NC town near mine. I have known Erika for years.
      She started loudly mao-maoing me about Jan. 6th. I told her that she is saying this to me due to her frustration that I have not asked any sexual favors from her. The AOC Doctrine!!
      She became speechless, then finally said all flushed–What are you talking about?! I quickly explained The Doctrine and just as quickly Erica walked away in a huff!

      Addendum- Erika is a very nice woman but a true MSNBC Democrat! She’ll laugh about it the next time we visit!

    396. jason says:

      Say what you want about Antonio Brown, it looks like he stands on principle (pun intended).

      Evidently he only needed one more TD catch to earn a $333,000 bonus, 55 more yards for another $333,000 and 8 more catches for a another $333,000 bonus.

      Conceivably he could have accomplished at least 2 of those if he just complied with the coach request to enter the game in the 3rd quarter.

      I would have done the unprincipled thing, racked up the $666,000 and THEN given the finger to woke football.

      Really scary.

      Of course, “people familiar with the matter” could be BS.

    414. Bitterlaw says:

      CDM – Tgca was a vicious, terrible person. However, I don’t like HHR shrinking. I agree that not having to read thousands of his posts is a relief. I just thought he would make an exit rant. I doubt he was banned.

      “Efforts to help their wallets”? Puhhhhhleeeeze…

      President Biden’s disapproval rating reached a new high in December, according to a new CNBC-Change Research poll.

      Overall, the survey showed 56 percent of voters disapproved of Biden’s performance in office, an uptick from 54 percent in September and 49 percent in April.

      His approval rating now stands at 44 percent.
      – ADVERTISEMENT –

      “Biden was particularly hard hit when it came to the public’s opinion of his handling of the economy and the COVID-19 pandemic.

      Specifically, the poll indicated that 60 percent of respondents disapproved of Biden’s handling of the economy and 55 percent disapproved of his pandemic response.

      For the economy, 72 percent said they disapprove of Biden’s management of the price of everyday goods, and 66 percent said they did not approve of the president’s efforts to help their wallets.”

    448. jason says:

      More on the FBI poll. Politicizing the agency is killing its reputation.

      “Fifty percent of voters now believe the FBI director is influenced by the president in his decision-making, while only 26% believe Wray is truly independent of the administration, and another 25% are not sure. That’s a near-complete reversal from May 2017, when 53% believed the FBI director was truly independent and 26% thought he was influenced by the president.”

      And overall, the public is divided on the FBI, with 46% having a favorable impression and 47% an unfavorable view.

      Rasmussen addressed the politics of the agency and said, “President Biden’s strongest supporters have the most favorable impression of the FBI. Among voters who ‘Strongly Approve’ of Biden’s job performance as president, 86% view the FBI favorably. By comparison, among voters who ‘Strongly Disapprove’ of Biden’s performance, only 19% have a favorable impression of the FBI.”

      Here is my analysis of percentage of blame for the key figures in the 1986 Boston Red Sox loss of Game 6 (and 7) of the World Series.

      John McNamara 55%

      1) Roger Clemens had yielded only 4 hits through seven innings and was still dominating the Mets in Game Six, and everyone involved (including closer Calvin Schiraldi) expected Boston to ride Clemens all the way to the title in Game Six, where he would only come out if the Mets started to ding him. According to Clemens, he told McNamara after 7 innings of work that he had a blister but it only affected his slider, and he could continue. McNamara says Clemens begged to come out of the game. Who lied? Clearly it was McNamara. Clemens was a fierce competitor who would never ask out of a game–especially one where he could be on the mound only six outs later to celebrate a World Series win. Furthermore, Clemens was seen in the dugout with his batting helmet on expecting to hit in the top of the 8th.
      2) Adding to the mistake of pulling Clemens in the after 7 innings, the Red Sox had Dave Henderson on 2nd with one out in the top of the 8th, and instead of bring up slugger Don Baylor to hit for Clemens, McNamara sent rookie and light-hitting Mike Greenwell to the plate, and he struck out on three weak swings.
      3) With only a 3-2 lead going into the bottom of the 8th, McNamara errored in asking Schiraldi for a two-inning save. He was the best Red Sox reliever, having taken the closer job from Bob Stanley, and should have been reserved for the potential save in the bottom of the ninth. Instead, Schiraldi struggled in the 8th inning, giving up a couple of hits, and after a sacrifice, intentional walk, and bases loaded sac fly to tie the game, he finally worked out of the inning without worse damage. But clearly after that labored 8th inning, there was no way Schiraldi should be able to go 2 more innings, but McNamara had painted himself into a corner.
      4) In the top of the 10th, after Henderson homered to give Boston a 4-3 lead, the pitcher’s spot was up, and after Schiraldi had labored badly in the 8th and 9th, most expected the ignored Don Baylor to finally hit. He didn’t. Instead McNamara let Schiraldi hit (he struck out), and then Boggs doubled and Barrett drove him in for a 5-3 lead. Nice insurance run, yes, but had Baylor hit, the inning might have been even bigger.
      5) McNamara failed to see how badly Schiraldi was struggling. The first two outs of the bottom of the 10th inning, Backman and Hernandez, both got pretty good wood on the ball. Schiraldi was clearly worn out, up in the strike zone, and was just putting it there to be hit. Then both Carter and Mitchell had hard-hit singles, and yet McNamara sits there. Stanley was ready in the bull pen. It was way too late of a decision to finally go to Stanley after Knight singled to bring home Carter.
      6) The Dave Stapleton fiasco. In every post-season Red Sox win, Dave Stapleton was brought in as a defensive replacement for the hobbled Bill Buckner. Inexplicably, in the bottom of the 10th, with a two-run lead, Buckner was still out there. McNamara later claimed that Buckner was the best fielding first-baseman on the team, and that Stapleton had the nickname ‘Shaky’ due to his alleged defensive weakness. When asked directly about this, teammate Bruce Hurst said he never ONCE heard Stapleton called ‘Shaky.’ Clearly, McNamara wanted Buckner on the field at the moment of victory, a decision that would blow up in his face.

      Bob Stanley and Rich Gedman 23%

      There was absolutely no excuse for Gedman and Stanley to get crossed up on which pitch would be thrown to Mookie Wilson. This was a HUGE mistake, as Gedman was leaning away from the batter while Stanley threw inside. Instead of trying to get in front of it, Gedman just jabbed at it and missed. And Stanley didn’t just miss the plate, his pitch was so wild it nearly hit Mookie Wilson–whose acrobatics to avoid the pitch should be credited with scoring Mitchell because most batters would have been plunked resulting in bases loaded, and still a 1 run lead. But Stanley and Gedman shoulder a HUGE amount of blame for allowing the game to be needlessly tied.

      Calvin Schiraldi 15%

      Schiraldi was asked to pitch by his manager more than he could actually do, but he does shoulder the blame for allowing the game to be tied up in the bottom of the 8th, and then failing again in the bottom of the 10th, and then failing again in Game 7.

      Oil Can Boyd 3%

      When game seven was delayed 1 day due to rain, McNamara pulled the start from Boyd, allowing Hurst to pitch on short rest. Boyd was crushed and got himself drunk, rendering himself unable to pitch at all in Game 7.

      Bill Buckner 2%

      Okay, the ball did go through his legs allowing the winning run to score in Game 6, but people forget that the TYING run had already scored on Stanley’s wild pitch. Even if Buckner fields the ball, analysts of the play say there was a 50/50 chance Mookie beats Buckner to the bag, and it didn’t appear Stanley would get there in time either. But even if Buckner gets Mookie out, the game goes on to the 11th inning with the Mets retaining more bull pen options that the Red Sox in a game that thereafter would clearly favor the Mets.

      Wade Boggs 1%

      There is an often overlooked play in the famous bottom of the 10 in game six, when Ray Knight was at the plate. The Red Sox still led 5-3. A few swings before Knight stroked a single to score Carter, he hit a slow dribbler up along third. It was in fair play, and Boggs could have fairly easily picked up the ball and thrown out the slow-running Knight to win the World Series. Instead of creating for himself a career moment, he took the too conservative approach and allowed the ball to roll foul. Even if he fielded it, threw to first, and didn’t beat Knight, it would have been only bases loaded, with two outs and a two-run lead–a much better position they would have been in than Knight singling to score Carter.

    465. DW says:

      One more I forgot with McNamara. In game 7 Roger Clemens was ready to come in for relief and give Boston a few quality innings. The call never came.

    466. jason says:

      I agree, except I think Wades Bogg should be 2% responsible.

    467. DW says:

      I thought about giving Boggs 2%. Its admittedly a tough call. When you re-watch the play, its somewhat astounding that he didn’t pick it up and throw him out. He should have known Knight wasn’t that fast.

      In reality a carveout of “voting rights” would be even worse than BBB, because it would pretty much ensure one party rule, while BBB would “only” destroy the economy. Presumably you could right the economy in the future, but not if Dems made sure they would never lose elections.

      “But Joe Manchin has already popped Schumer’s bubble and done in this goal. He told reporters today that any carveout would be a “heavy lift,” that if you did that “you eat the whole turkey,” meaning you once you go down that road, you’ve killed the filibuster. He refused to go along with anything that wasn’t bipartisan. Translation: No dice, Chuckie.”

      Sinema has been very quiet lately, I don’t know if she has been bought off or just letting Manchin do the heavy lifting. She had been pretty clear she was against tampering with the filibuster.

      In reality, I always thought she was less likely to be bought off than Manchin, who had a history of caving at the end.

      Nikki Fried calls DeSantis a “dictator”.

      Will go over well with all the people in FL that fled real dictators.

    485. DW says:

      Democrats always like to call Republican leaders ‘dictators’ and then when the Dems finally get into power and actually acts like dictators, then they are called ‘visionaries.’

    486. Tom says:

      494. Democrats are hypocrites?! Who knew??

    487. jason says:

      Yep. This is what Obama said about Fidel Castro, who for decades was a brutal communist dictator that killed thousands and jailed all dissidents.

      “We know that this moment fills Cubans — in Cuba and in the United States — with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him”

      Trudeau on Castro:

      Trudeau described Castro as a “legendary revolutionary and orator” and praised him for making “significant improvements to the education and health care of his island nation.”

    492. jason says:

      Biden often does not know where he is. Or where to go. Or what he is saying. Now he doesn’t even know what year it is.

      Remember when Amoral Scumbag got VERY excited that some quack diagnosed Trump on TV as “mentally incapacitated”, and couldn’t stop posting about it?

      Biden? Crickets.

    493. jason says:

      Where are these people?

      “A petition signed by 350 psychiatrists and other mental-health professionals claiming that President Donald Trump’s mental health is deteriorating rapidly amid impeachment proceedings is set to be submitted to Congress on Thursday.
      “We are convinced that, as the time of possible impeachment approaches, Donald Trump has the real potential to become ever more dangerous, a threat to the safety of our nation,” said Drs. Bandy Lee, a Yale psychiatrist, Jerrold Post, a former CIA profiler, and John Zinner, a psychiatrist at George Washington University.”

    494. jason says:

      Chuckie gooal post alert!

      We went from “holding a vote” to “having discussions”

      “Asked about what might be changed in the Senate rules re: the filibuster, Schumer only says ‘there are many different proposals out there and our caucus is discussing them.’ But Schumer acknowledges there is no deal among Democrats.”

    495. mnw says:

      I formed my opinion of shrinks from watching them for 35 years, when I noticed the perfect correlation between their expert opinions and the party paying them.

    496. jason says:

      I hope the Dems keep spending money to run ads against Manchin in WV…

      https://www.nysun.com/editorials/game-over-manchins-job-approval-soars-to-59-as-he/91863/

    497. mnw says:

      DEM senators facing tough reelection contests (NV; AZ) must want to kill Schumer for scheduling difficult votes– in order to punish Manchin & Sinema.

    498. jason says:

      I don’t know if this is what mmw meant by schtum but I will take it…

      “Kyrsten Sinema reiterated during yesterday’s virtual Democratic caucus lunch she will not support any effort to get rid of the 60-vote threshold, according to two sources familiar with the call”

    499. jason says:

      Of course, always skeptical about “sources familiar”, just like I was skeptical when Axios reported that Manchin was negotiating “according to people familiar with the matter”, which turned out to be wrong.

    500. jason says:

      Let’s see if Schumer really schedules the vote.

      Right now he is trying to pretend the vote is 48-2. It is not. It is 52-48 at best.

      It destroys the narrative that “one or two people” are destroying civilization as we know it.

    505. jason says:

      All murders, robberies, carjackings, burglaries, rapes, assaults, drug related deaths and crimes and political corruption happen in Bad Philadelphia.

      Good Philadelphia it is a beautiful peaceful, paradise completely isolated, separate, and apart from Bad Philadelphia, which for all practical purposes should be considered to be thousands of miles away. Good Philadelphia is a cultural mecca where elitist suburbanites from places like Radnor can go to while professing to not knowing anything about Bad Philadelphia.

      When it comes to Bad Philadelphia, the elitists “know nothing, see nothing, hear nothing”.

    506. jason says:

      State Police and transportation officials took to the air to monitor progress because highway traffic cameras went dark amid power outages, Northam said. While expressing sympathy for stranded motorists, Northam said more should have heeded warnings to stay off the roads.”

      Did he tell Tim Kaine he should have stayed off the roads?

    507. jason says:

      Looks like Fairmount is in Good Philadelphia. These things like fires are not supposed to happen there…there should be an investigation since this is only normal in Bad Philadelphia.

      “Home to Philly’s truly world-class museums, Fairmount is synonymous with fine art — but art is far from the only draw for this northern neighbor to Center City.

      Often referred to as the “Art Museum Area” because of its walking-distance access to Philadelphia Museum of Art, Franklin Institute, Rodin Museum and Barnes Foundation, Fairmount possesses a distinct personality that thrives independent of those many hallowed halls.”

    508. DW says:

      516 – more were on the roads because their flights home were canceled due to Covid madness, and so they had to rent cars and drive home.

    509. jason says:

      Schtum was actually new to me, and I consider myself well versed in Yiddish slang for an Incan.

      Well, time to schlep some llama feed over to the barn.

    510. jason says:

      I don’t actually blame Northam for the debacle, storms happen, but the hypocrisy of blaming Youngkin first and then giving Northam a pass second is astounding.

    511. Bitterlaw says:

      If Philly-hater Jason had ever been to Philadelphia, he would know that Fairmount is a mixed area. There are expensive high-rise condo building, middle class homes and low-income sections. The fire was in Section 8 housing. It is subsidized for low-income people.

      It does have nice bars and restaurants. It also has a thriving girls softball league.

      On a good note, the U.S. is about to become the world’s top LNG gas exporter.

      “The U.S. Energy Information Administration recently forecast that the new Venture Global and Cheniere facilities will increase the country’s peak LNG production capacity from 11.6 Bcf/d as of November 2021 to 13.9 Bcf/d by the end of 2022 across the seven export facilities. The agency forecast that baseload U.S. LNG liquefaction capacity will increase from 9.5 Bcf/d to 11.4 Bcf/d over the same time frame.

      With all of these terminals at full capacity, the U.S. would become the biggest global LNG producer, ahead of Australia and Qatar, which export 11.4 Bcf/d and 10.3 Bcf/d, respectively, according to the EIA.”

      I’ll do so again if Trump wins the 2024 primary, but if he doesn’t run I will support another candidate, but most likely not Cruz. Unforced error today, and that misjudgment will cost him my vote.

      Questions a out 1/6/2021

      1. How many people were gathered for the rally in D.C.?

      2. How many people broke windows, etc. and forced enter into the capitol?

      3. When did Trump address the crowd?

      4. When did the breach of the Capitol happen–before, during or after Trump addressed crowd?

      5. how many capitol police were at the capitol to deny illegal entry? Was this security force in any way beefed up for that specific and important day?

      6. When did a call go out to bring police reinforcements? How long did it take for reinforcements to get to the capitol bldg?

      7. How many people who entered the capitol were the ones who broke windows/doors to gain entry, physically assault police, destroy property, stole property?

      8. How many people actually entered the capitol building? What % of this group were part of a violent mob, just bystanders who were there inside but did not commit any acts of violence, just entered and walked around and took pictures?

      9. What % of the people gathered for the rally entered into the capitol bldg.?

      10. How many FBI assets (people) were actually in the crowd? In the smaller crowd who forced entry? Entered the capitol? We all know the FBI musta had some people actually in the crowd.

      11. Did authorities arrest the person(s) who were videoed taking down the perimeter fence?

      12. Who was it that removed metal barricades? Some videos I saw, it looked like the police were removing the barricades.

      13. Were there instances where police actually opened doors and let people in the capitol?

      14. Of the thousands of hours of video tapes from various sources, can the public still see all those?

      I remember seeing one video clip where someone (tall dude) outside the capitol doors rushed in and looked like was beating on one of the people trying to break windows in the door.

      15. Why didn’t security forces inside capitol use firehoses on the people trying to enter capitol through broken windows? or use stun grenades? Rubber bullets?

      Hey, Cow

      In addition to sussing out the fact that old white conservatives are irresistibly drawn to her, due to her irresistible sexual aura, Sandy also said (not long back):

      “Republicans– they’re old white men who sit around and talk about the good old days, when Hershey bars were a nickel.”

      I know that’s what my friends and I always discuss, whenever we get together– because we’re dumb & a little senile, & haven’t read widely like AOC has– so that’s all we CAN talk about! Candy bars! Boy, those Hershey bars were something back then, weren’t they?

      Can you remember when you could get 5 of them for a quarter, Cow?

      Gee our old Lasalle ran great, too. Those were the days!

    558. mnw says:

      567 Gordon

      I don’t agree about selling. I think cash is trash. I prefer rotating into high dividend value stocks, especially energy, & especially natural gas.

    559. Cash Cow TM says:

      Here is who Cow blames for CAUSING the unfortunate riot/assault on the Capitol on 1/6/2021:
      ************************************************

      1. George Floyd trying to pass counterfeit money, eating drugs, refusing to get into police car.

      2. The policeman who had a knee on the back/neck of George Floyd that was involved in causing Floyd’s death.

      3. The tens of thousands of asshats who participated in George Floyd riots and hundreds of millions of dollars of destruction (in dozens of cities) for 7 months.

      4. Antifa/BLM/Anarchists/nutjobs who spent months nightly attacking federal buildings and agents defending same on the left coast.

      5. The city and state authorities that allowed #3 and #4 above to continue and did not meet those riots with sufficient force to end the violence, deaths, assaults, arsons, destruction of personal and government property.

      6. The asshats who set up and funded free bail money for all the anarchists who were were arrested in #3 and #4 above.

      7. The U.S. court system that REFUSED to actually hold ANY court case to investigate ANY specific and/or widespread CHARGES of election fraud to prove or dispel the charges that fraud existed in the 2020 election.
      [I do not understand how votes could be counted without poll watchers present if State law required the presence of poll watchers from both parties being present during the vote count and tally.]

      8. The R party officials in PA and other states who did not attempt–prior to the election–to thwart violation of State laws by State court judges of existing State election laws as a result of Covid.

      9. The fricking Chinese for unleashing Covid on the U.S. that messed up normal election procedures.

      10. The media for not fairly covering LOTS of things and not presenting both sides concerning charges of election fraud, irregularities, violation of State laws, etc.

      11. People who voted for Biden merely because they think Trump is an a$$hole.

      12. Trump for being an a$$hole who could not control his fingers or mouth and caused many voters to want to vote against him and instead vote for a senile simpleton who will go down in history as a very failed president.

      13. The authorities who failed to take proper steps to prevent a breach of the U.S. Capitol building.

    560. Cash Cow TM says:

      As to what happened on 1/6 a year ago, Cow–months earlier–correctly predicted that sh!t would hit the fan due to:

      A. MONTHS of frustration of a large segment of Americans who were incensed by the government(s) allowing lawlessness to seize the cities and take over the streets. Eventually the non-left wing nut jobs would conclude that they ALSO MUST take their grievances to the street and use violent methods to achieve their goals.

      B. failure of the courts of refusing to hear cases concerning election fraud/irregularities and WHICH WOULD EITHER PROVE OR DISPEL the 2020 election fraud/irregularities charges.

      Since even a COW could see this coming, it lends credence to those who think that the Left allowed and underhandedly encouraged those on the Right to do what they did on 1/6 so the boom could be lowered on the Right.

    561. Cash Cow TM says:

      “A 6.1 earthquake just struck 50 miles from the capital of Nicaragua.”

      Trump’s fault.
      Either that or GlowBull warming.

      The permit was for 20,000 (or other souces say 30,000). But there were 3 permits for 3 separate rallies on 1/6/21 totaling 75,000 expected attendees.

      The actual crowd on that day was 120,000 people.
      Despite the huge size of the crowd, a D.C. city official (can’t remember his title) on that day before it all hit the fan viewed the crowd and said he thought it was at the low end of 20,000–maybe LESS!
      ___________________________________________
      2. How many people broke windows, etc. and forced enter into the capitol?

      ANSWER: earlier it was said by authorities (FBI) that about 800 people entered the Capitol. Weeks/Months later this was changed to 1,200 people.
      They have arrested over 800 so far.
      _____________________________________________

      3. When did Trump address the crowd?

      ANSWER: Trump addressed the crowd at 12 noon.
      The assault on the Capitol took place shortly before 1 p.m. (and Trump was still addressing the crowd still gathered at the White House.
      _______________________________________________
      4. When did the breach of the Capitol happen–before, during or after Trump addressed crowd?

      ANSWER: Before 1 p.m. while Trump was still speaking the assault began. Breach of the Capitol building happened about 2 p.m.
      __________________________________________

      5. How many capitol police were at the capitol to deny illegal entry? Was this security force in any way beefed up for that specific and important day?

      ANSWER: Outside on one side of the capitol building were about 24 officers. Outside on the grounds on the side where the Trump rally had been happening was about 18 officers. Inside the Capitol were maybe 150-200(?) officers.
      Top Capitol police chief WELL BEFORE Jan 6 requested more police to be on duty for 1/6. They could have had about 300 more Capitol Police deployed that day. Before 1/6/21 other federal agencies offered the use of their officers. The 300 extra CP were not called in beforehand. The offer from the other federal agencies was rejected.
      ____________________________________________
      6. When did a call go out to bring police reinforcements? How long did it take for reinforcements to get to the capitol bldg?

      ANSWER: Called for reinforcement when they lost the exterior lines outside the bldg. well before 2 p.m. (Maybe 1:15-1:30?)
      Interestingly, at4 about 3 p.m. is when Ashly Babbitt was shot and killed. 3 or 4 CP were outside the locked/barricaded interior door (to the House/Senate?). These CP had not pulled their sidearms, had no helmets or shields and were holding back the crowd from forcing through. Though the crowd did reach past them to break the glass in the doors/windows. At about 3 p.m. about 6 heavily armed CP with AR-15s in riot gear came up the steps to relieve those 3 or 4 practically unarmed CP. The unarmed CP stepped away and before the heavily equipped CP squad could get to that door and in those intervening seconds is when the crowd broke out the windows and Ashley Babbitt tried to go through and was shot and killed.

      National Guard/Federal troops–while ready to be there and just 20 minutes away–were not activated and put into play until like 4 p.m. or later. By 6 p.m. riotors were cleared from the building and capitol grounds. The Pentagon brass would not give permission when first requeted. Some say it was due to bad optics when they deployed them in June 2020 over BLM/Pink Floyd protest and they took heat over that and were reluctant to do so again.
      ___________________________________________

      7. How many people who entered the capitol were the ones who broke windows/doors to gain entry, physically assault police, destroy property, stole property?

      ANSWER: Authorities now say @ 1200 people entered Capitol…unknown how many did the things listed above.
      _____________________________________________

      8. How many people actually entered the capitol building? What % of this group were part of a violent mob, just bystanders who were there inside but did not commit any acts of violence, just entered and walked around and took pictures?

      ANSWER: see answer above

      9. What % of the people gathered for the rally entered into the capitol bldg.?

      ANSWER: So if 120,000 in crowd and 1,200 entered building…1%
      ___________________________________________

      10. How many FBI assets (people) were actually in the crowd? In the smaller crowd who forced entry? Entered the capitol? We all know the FBI musta had some people actually in the crowd.

      ANSWER: unknown. But one 40-minute video telling what happened showed that Epps guy (FBI paid guy) TWICE inciting the crowd to get into the bldg.

      11. Did authorities arrest the person(s) who were videoed taking down the perimeter fences?

      Answer: unknown.
      ____________________________________________

      12. Who was it that removed metal barricades? Some videos I saw, it looked like the police were removing the barricades.

      ANSWER: unknown. Most of what I saw was protestors pushing down barriers while police were trying desperately to prevent that from happening. [Long ago, I DID see a video where it APPEARED it was police officers who were removing the barriers and waving the crowd forward.]
      _______________________________________________

      13. Were there instances where police actually opened doors and let people in the capitol?

      ANSWER: At one of the 8 breaches, the CP stood there and made no effort to try to stop the breach and keep people out.
      ____________________________________________
      14. Of the thousands of hours of video tapes from various sources, can the public still see all those?

      ANSWER: I do not know.

      I remember seeing one video clip where someone (tall dude) outside the capitol doors rushed in and looked like was beating on one of the people trying to break windows in the door.
      [have never seen this video since about a week after 1//6/21]
      _____________________________________________

      15. Why didn’t security forces inside capitol use firehoses on the people trying to enter capitol through broken windows? or use stun grenades? Rubber bullets?

      ANSWER: The Cap. Pol. outside the building had no riot gear, shields, helmets, crowd control weapons. By the time the thin line of CP (and ensuing reinforcements) lost the line on the grounds leading TO the capitol, the commander ordered the tactical squads in. It took them a while to get there. They were armed with stun grenades and tear gas and other gear and used what they had on the crowd. This would have been well before 2 p.m. when the capitol building itself was actually breached and people began entering the capitol bldg.
      Apparently, rubber bullets were used on BLM protestors back in June 2020 at or near the capitol.

      I don’t see the Democrats strategy of focusing on the “insurrection” from a year ago as being a very effective strategy. Americans now in 2022 are focused on economic issues and the coronavirus epidemic — and the Biden presidency has failed miserably on both issues. The Democrats present shrillness about last year’s events comes across as a smoke screen to hide the Biden administration’s failures over the last year.

      Finland’s leaders say they will decide whether to join NATO despite warnings ?from Russia against joining the Western alliance, as the military standoff on Ukraine’s border has heightened tensions between Moscow, the US and Washington’s European allies. ?

      “Finland’s room to maneuver and freedom of choice also include the possibility of military alignment and applying for NATO membership, should we ourselves so decide,” President Sauli Niinistö said in a New Year’s address over the weekend.

      Niinistö also urged the European Union to become actively involved in curbing Russian aggression, saying: “In this situation, Europe cannot just listen in.”

    590. jason says:

      Cruz just made Tina’s RINO list?

      I think she should start a new list of who is NOT a RINO, much more manageable.

      Not only will it be very short, it will get shorter each day.

    591. jason says:

      I don’t think Cruz should have referred to anyone at the Jan 6 protest as “terrorist”, even in the context of those that attacked police officers.

      I am not a fan of Ted Cruz as I have often considered him a grandstander.

      However, to pretend he is anything less than a committed conservative is really stupid.

      If Ted Cruz is not conservative enough for the 100% litmus testing morons, conservatives will be a tiny minority consigned to the fringes of power for eternity.

    592. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Scott Rasmussen makes a good point:

      “I believe the Democrats have made a terrible miscalculation with Hispanic voters. The Census Bureau defines a Hispanic person as anybody with any Hispanic heritage. If your parents were both born in America, but their parents came from a Hispanic country, you’re counted that way? Turns out, about half of Hispanic voters think of themselves as White, especially in West Texas, South Texas. It depends on if you live in a community that is heavily Hispanic and has strong ties to new immigrants coming in.

      “Democrats want to present this notion of persons of color, that they are all the same. It is not a coalition that exists in the real world. And when you appeal to a Hispanic voter who thinks they’re White, trying to make their life in America, and you say ‘fighting for civil rights,’ it doesn’t connect.”

    593. Bitterlaw says:

      The great irony is that Trump is not on Tina’s RINO list. He spent decades funding hard-core leftists. He only ran as a Republican so he did not have to face Hillary in a Dem primary.

      I did not like Cruz’s statement but it did not make him a RINO.

    594. Wes says:

      Ironically despite her not being a Republican, Tina considers herself the gatekeeper for who RINOs are and are not.

    595. Gordon Allen says:

      Cruz has no shot in 24.
      I read his whole statement and some of his questions. Big picture was different.

      He was sucking up to the witness at the start; foolish, but doesn’t make him a Rino.

      Is that the new standard? When it counted?

      Seems to me “when it counted” Ted Cruz was ALWAYS more conservative than Trump.

      Bitter is right, if Cruz is a RINO, Trump is a MEGA RINO.

    600. jason says:

      The fact is, 90% of the RINOS the 100% litmus test morons attack here are more conservative than Trump.

    601. Bitterlaw says:

      So in order to encourage the use of electric vehicles in California, they are going to have mobile charging station vehicles that generate their electrical charge from onboard natural gas tanks:

      “But the mobile charging station developed by L-Charge, which runs on relatively low-emission liquefied natural gas (LNG) or hydrogen, also offers a solution that doesn’t involve additional strain on the grid. This is an important innovation in a world in which demands on the grid are expected to grow rapidly over the next decade.”

      Meanwhile California is building more natural gas power plants to avoid blackouts in the summer.

      So much for the green energy revolution. Maybe Al Gore can fly the Swedish scold to California on his private jet to lecture Newsom.

    606. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      So not only don’t the vaccines prevent infection, it now appears the COVID tests do not detect early infections. What a complete joke of a public health establishment. Let’s see how Fauci spins this one.

      NYT headline:

      “Emerging Data Raise Questions About Antigen Tests and Nasal Swabs
      A new study adds to evidence that common rapid tests may fail to detect some Omicron cases in the first days of infection.”

      Why not just run cars on LNG if possible? But I do not know if it is possible or safe. Maybe SDC knows.

    609. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      619. I often drive a natural gas truck. However, it runs on CNG, condensed natural gas. LNG is expensive because it requires the natural gas be keep at a low temperature to liquify it. It would also be an energy use hog in a small vehicle.

      The mobile recharge vehicles would likely be good sized trucks with large LNG tanks that could charge a large number of vehicles each day. Charging an electric vehicle is not cheap, unless you have a home charger. A recent study found it was more expensive than the cost of gasoline for a gas engine vehicle.

    610. Bitterlaw says:

      Walt is offended by the term “fossil fuel.” He says those fossils used to be his friends.

    611. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Here is a comparison of the costs of charging an electric vehicle vehicle vs. a gasoline vehicle. It does not include the costs of driving around to find an open electric charger, or the hours necessary for an electric car to be charged:

      “A mid-priced internal combustion car that gets 33 miles per gallon would cost $8.58 in overall costs to drive 100 miles at $2.81 a gallon, the study found. But a mid-priced EV, such as Chevrolet Bolt, Nissan Leaf or a Tesla Model 3, would cost $12.95 to drive 100 miles in terms of costs that include recharging the vehicle using mostly a commercial charger.”

      “On a yearly basis, assuming the mid-priced cars traveled 12,000 miles, it would cost $1,030 to drive an internal combustion car and $1,554 to drive an EV.”

      When it counted was Jan20,2017 to January 20,2021.
      Yes. That was and is the only litmus test. Full stop

    616. DW says:

      Biden administration lawyer is apparently watching the results from some other planet:

      Biden administration says vaccine mandate is ‘single most effective’ tool OSHA has.
      Justice Thomas asks the Biden administration’s lawyer whether there are other tools and methods OSHA could have used instead, rather than the vaccine mandate.

      She says that the requirement is the “single most effective way of targeting” what OSHA is seeking to combat, including serious illness, transmission etc.

      “Vaccination provides protection on all of those fronts,” she says.

      Protection? From what?

    617. DW says:

      Sotomayor claims vaccine requirement is not a mandate, says it is ‘something totally different’

      yeah, it all depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.

    618. Gordon Allen says:

      Jason you’re being argumentative again. No one cares about unilateral definitions of RINO on this site.
      We should care about them in Congress,and Governors offices ” where it counts”.
      We can be sure in most cases who those are by their actions

    619. jason says:

      No one cares about unilateral definitions of RINO on this site.”

      Since I never call anybody RINOS, you obviously are confused.

      Talk to the 100% litmus test morons here that are RINO hunters.

      As far as being “argumentative”, yeah, I like calling idiots out.

      GFY.

    620. jason says:

      I hope SCOTUS denies something totally different.

    621. jason says:

      Maybe Neville Allen can help Tina turn off the lights when the last true conservative becomes a RINO.

      It might take two, one to turn the lights off and one to check they are really off.

    622. jason says:

      We can be sure in most cases who those are by their actions”

      Of course.

      The rule is that true conservatives are only one vote or one comment or one nanosecond away from becoming RINOs.

      Ted Cruz, a fire breathing principled conservative for decades and right wing hero for single handedly shutting down the government, who in the last year has been lauded for mercilessly skewering Biden, Fauci, Kamala and all of Biden’s left wing nominees in the Senate, became an INSTA-RINO for calling people that attacked police officers terrorists, as defined by people who regularly call BLM and Antifa thugs who attack police officers terrorists.

    623. DW says:

      Reading the questions SCOTUS judges put to the attorneys is always tricky business, but if I had to guess its looking like a 5-4 decision against the Biden Admin using OSHA to force employees to get the shots.

    624. Tina says:

      Red Ruze is a lawyah and a politician. He knows what he said. He is an idiot.

      I worry about Beotchy, Bushie, and Souter.

      They like “big gubment”conservatism and mandates.

    626. Tina says:

      And for once, like to see one of the four commies vote with the conservatives on the court.

    627. jason says:

      Why not just run cars on LNG if possible?”

      Many countries have cars that only run on LNG, there are millions of LNG powered cars in Latin America. Refueling can be done at easily accessible pumps at regular gas stations and is much more convenient than recharging electrically.

      Also, conventional cars can be adapted to run on LNG, so that is another advantage, all it takes is a “kit”, so that they can run on both gas and LNG.

    628. Tina says:

      We don’t have to worry about Alito, Thomas, or Gorsuch.

    650. jason says:

      Bitter it is ok to attack Sotomayor for making up stuff at the hearing while making up stuff that Ted Cruz never said.

    651. Bitterlaw says:

      I said during the BLM and Antifa riots that people who broke the law should be prosecuted. I said on 1/6/2020 that people broke the law should be prosecuted. I never equated BLM and Antifa to the 1/6/2020 protesters.

      Tina either thinks that none of the protesters went too far on 1/6/2020 OR the ones who broke the law should not be prosecuted. She should just say it.

    652. mnw says:

      I never saw any def assert an entrapment defense in either state or federal court.

      I’d be curious to know what the standard is for a def to get discovery (Were undercover police present? If so, what did they do & say?) for a prospective entrapment defense.

      I never explored the deep weeds on the J6 defs. Didn’t they all plead guilty?

      More than other defenses, entrapment is unusually fact-driven. I’m trying to envision “entrapment” & “trespassing/property damage,” without much success.

      There’s also a thing about whether entrapment is judged by an objective or subjective test, & I have no idea which would apply to the J6 defs. Apparently their own attys didn’t think that avenue was very promising.

    653. jason says:

      However, some were invited in and others apparently were entrapped by the Fib or other Federal agencies.”

      Huh, no.

      At some door the cops did not try to prevent people from coming in, but “entrapped” sounds like BS. Everyone who invaded the Capitol was there voluntarily and knew they were trespassing. They were not terrorists and they were not insurrectionists but they were not “entrapped”.

    654. Tina says:

      The same word other people here called him in 2018, when they wanted the Skateboarder to win.

      Who specifically on here wanted Cruz to win, Tina? I recall statements by several posters on here, I included, saying because Cruz in public comes across as a smug, unlikable jackass, Beto would make the election closer than it should have been.

      That’s what I’m thinking, DW. Dems have no candidates of the same caliber as Bill Proxmire or Herb Kohl to challenge him, so with Biden’s popularity having fallen precipitously over the past year, I think Johnson wins by about the same margin he unseated Feingold by.

      The remedy for that is not to throw away the institutions, it is to change the educational system and the dynamics that allows such people to dominate them. Of course, that is much more difficult than shallow and simplistic knee jerk “solutions” such as “dismantle the FBI”

      MNW: Not really worried about the inheritance tax.
      The advance distributions are because my heirs need assistance earlier, rather than later when they’ve established themselves. More bang for the buck.
      Waiting for me to “move on” when they won’t need it then seems foolish. Each to his own.
      Shows how easy it is to make assumptions.
      For instance, graduating from Columbia, being an Attorney, living in Connecticut and then Massachusetts(Cape Cod), statistically would scream lefty Democrat from the North.
      But instead I fit perfectly here in very conservative SW Florida. Leaping to conclusions is a mistake.

      I never saw Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? before. My daughter wanted to see it because Sidney Poitier died and is the same as my dad. I can see how it must have been very daring/shocking in 1967. Great movie.

      Of course, it seemed like 200 years ago to my daughter. My wife and I were born in 1968 so we could not relate to the racial issues that existed when the movie came out. But we could relate to the idea of parents having to accept differences. My mother was not happy I was marrying a Jewish woman. She also thought my wife could do better than me. I am sure she was right. My wife’s sisters also married Christians. When we got married, he said “Why am I the only Jewish man with 3 daughters and no Jewish sons-in-law?” I replied, “Why am I the only man with a Jewish father-in-law who doesn’t own a beach house?” We we’re close after that.

      The fact you think we should just let Putin recreate the Soviet Union because “the world sucks” shows you have zero understanding of geopolitical situations.
