For the record, Chuck C. Johnson’s Michelle Fields obsession has now reached 10 posts. Now he’s attacking her aunt for “hating” Trump.

He’s got a screw loose, as my mother would have said.

Accprding to his schoolyard code of ethics, Michelle Fields is “attacking” Corey Lewandowski solely because members of her family “hate” Trump. Chuck cannot comprehend that (1) politics is not inherited and (2) it is possible for journalists to set aside their personal feelings while covering a story and (3) Lewandowski did it.

So, did the Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) sign or veto the electric chair bill before him? I understand he had until midnight Eastern Time to decide that. He wouldn’t say one way or another to the press.

An example of press reporting on this is from The Guardian:
theguardian.com

As the law currently stands, the electric chair can only be used when a condemned person elects it. The bill would allow the state to impose it.

C’mon Virginia, even my state of Nebraska repealed the death penalty. If our Republican legislature can bring themselves to do that, surely a Democratic governor would not sign a bill to make it easier.

Media flogging horse race narrative once again…. I will say this, it’s nice that Sanders is in the race. Without him there and helping to bring into discussion topics like free tuition, income inequality what would we have likely had? In my mind I could see the media still relentlessly flogging the nothingburgers of Benghazi, and the e-mail server and failing that, attempting to pin the failures of the Clinton Presidency on her doorstep. At least the discussion on the Dem side are mostly about issues and not character.

In comparison to the shit show on the other side, lets jail the abortionists because women don’t have any rights when they’re pregnant, lets build a wall and lets bomb everyone who doesn’t suck up to us…. I’d much rather deal with the lefty purity ponies than the outrage brigade over on the right.

Struth. Our big contretemps is that one candidate got all agitated and called the other unqualified. Their big contretemps is that Republican National Convention might leave Cleveland an irradiated wasteland of charred corpses and deflated red white and blue balloons, unfit for human habitation for the next ten thousand years.

I have no idea. She was admitted to the base hospital with blood sugar of 387 and sugar in her pee. Insulin brought her back to normal, but I don’t know if the USMC will accommodate her daily insulin doses.

She just received her commission last month.

I am not seeing any recent (as in after midnight) stories giving McAuliffe’s decision and the legislative page hasn’t been updated (and won’t be until the clerks at the General Assembly get in):
lis.virginia.gov

And the bad thing is that a man was just released after doing 33 years in prison here in Virginia in a non-capital case because someone at the Department of Forensic Science didn’t document exculpatory evidence in his report so the prosecutor wouldn’t be forced to turn it over. The case also involved bullshit forensic evidence involving bite mark patterns and a witness who had been hypnotized:

Yep, and he could be encouraging his supporters to get out there and be involved in the Congressional (and state, and local) primaries, party organizations, and Congressional general election races, which would increase his influence and goodwill and might cause the party to shift more to the left.

But that would be too “establishment” for him.

In Bernie’s case somewhere along the line he saw a glimmer of a chance that he might actually be the nominee, the race being much closer at this point than he thought it’d be going in. His wife admitted as much in a recent interview, that they’re doing far better than either of them ever thought possible. So they went from a position where it was impossible to really even be disappointed to one where they were actually able to get their hopes up.

Exactly. He could be a team player, and encourage his supporters to broaden their idea of the “team.” Instead, he’s acting like he’s the star center, and all the other players are just there running around for no real purpose.

An idiot could tell him that his lofty goals are just not going to happen without a cooperative Congress, one that he could help elect. As it is, if he were elected, the Dems surviving the election would not have a lot of good will toward a presidential candidate who did zero for the downticket.

If you are Jewish, don’t vote for Bernie

Bernie Sanders is not quite Jewish. He’s Jew-ish — a non-practicing, anti-Israel, kinda, sorta Hebrew.

Raised in a veritable shtetl in Brooklyn, the Bernmeister had a bar mitzvah, worked as a volunteer on an Israeli kibbutz — a collective farm modeled on communist principles — for several months while in his 20s, and counts a number of his European ancestors as victims of the Holocaust.

But the geriatric Vermont senator, who craves toppling Her Hillaryness from her presidential perch as he might crave a bagel with a schmear, is hardly down with the Chosen People.

Before running for the Democratic presidential nomination, before making a nebbishy star turn on “Saturday Night Live,” Bernie was something of a ham. He rapped on a folk-rock album while serving as mayor of Burlington, Vt., in 1987. Then, he donned a yarmulke to play a stereotypically obnoxious rabbi named “Manny Shevitz” (oy) in a low-budget 1999 romantic comedy, “My X-Girlfriend’s Wedding Reception,” while serving in the House.

Not necessarily. A beneficiary of a trust-fund doesn’t get to spend out the capital in the fund, they just receive the interest and/or a regular drawdown. Someone I knew had a trust fund, part of a family financial instrument that paid him enough to live on without him needing to work, but no private jets or limos. He wanted to get his hands on “his share” of the capital fund to live the high life for a few years but he couldn’t.

Steven eventually died in a car accident under the influence of drink and drugs. He was rather aimless, the money from the trust-fund insulating him from real life in some ways but it wasn’t enough to permit him the hedonistic lifestyle he felt was his due.

The problems of the rich aren’t the same as the problems of poor people, but they are problems. You don’t have paparazzi crawling through your garden trying to take candid pictures of you, your family, your kids, your pets. You don’t have to worry about crazed stalkers obsessed with the characters you play in movies or worry about kidnap and extortion. You don’t have to maintain a private security force for every trip outside your heavily-guarded compound, wear kevlar in public, spend your life maintaining the family fortune for your successors and wading through bullshit that others don’t have to.

The Panama Papers investigations have revealed that between $1 trillion and $4 trillion has “leaked” out of China to offshore accounts since 1997. That’s around $1,000 for each citizen of China, many of whom live on much less than that annually.

WASHINGTON — When it comes to nominating presidential candidates, it turns out the world’s foremost democracy is not so purely democratic.

For decades, both major parties have used a somewhat convoluted process for picking their nominees, one that involves ordinary voters in only an indirect way. As Americans flock this year to outsider candidates, the kind most hindered by these rules, they are suddenly waking up to this reality. And their confusion and anger are adding another volatile element to an election being waged over questions of fairness and equality.

In Nashville a week ago, supporters of Donald J. Trump accused Republican leaders of trying to stack the state’s delegate slate with people who were anti-Trump. The Trump campaign posted the cellphone number of the state party chairman on Twitter, leading him to be inundated with calls. Several dozen people showed up at the meeting at which delegates were being named, banged on the windows and demanded to be let in.

Backers of Senator Bernie Sanders, bewildered at why he keeps winning states but cannot seem to cut into Hillary Clinton’s delegate count because of her overwhelming lead with “superdelegates,” have used Reddit and Twitter to start an aggressive pressure campaign to flip votes.

In New York, tight laws and early deadlines will compound the challenge for Sanders.

There is no same-day registration in the state. Independents or members of third parties who want to vote as Democrats had to change their party registration by October 9.

And new voters - another key Sanders voting bloc - had to register by March 25, just days after the Sanders campaign deployed their first paid staffers in New York and the day before they opened their first field office there.

Confederate General John Hunt Morgan was a Confederate general and cavalry officer in the American Civil War. Morgan is best known for Morgan’s Raid when, in 1863, he and his men rode over 1,000 miles covering a region from Tennessee, up through Kentucky, into Indiana and on to southern Ohio. This would be the farthest north any uniformed Confederate troops penetrated during the war.

I think Earl Van Dorn was my favorite Confederate general:

It was Van Dorn’s reputation as a womanizer, not a Union bullet, that led to his death. In May 1863 he was shot in his headquarters at Spring Hill in Maury County, Tennessee, by Dr. James Bodie Peters,[30] who claimed that Van Dorn had carried on an affair with his wife Jessie McKissack Peters.[29] Alone in his office at the home of Martin Cheairs (now known as Ferguson Hall) Van Dorn was writing at his desk, and Peters entered and shot him once in the back of the head, killing him instantly.[31] Peters was later arrested by Confederate authorities, but was never brought to trial for the killing.[29] In defense of his actions, Dr. Peters stated that Van Dorn had “violated the sanctity of his home.”[32]

Classy guy.

The important thing is that you make sure that neither the favorable nor the unfavorable critics move into your head and take part in the composition of your next work.

— Thornton Wilder

So, what was Satie’s satirical response to Debussy’s advice that he should “pay more attention to form” in his music? He wrote “Three Pieces in the Form of a Pear.” But the work actually had seven parts:

A Way of Starting
Continuation of Same
Piece One
Piece Two
Piece Three
One More
A Rehash

Satie had fun with lots of his titles some of which can be seen as forerunners of outlandish, goofy names for bands. There’s “Dried Up Embryos,” “Dreamy Fish,” and “Disagreeable Perceptions”. I think the funniest is “Authentic Flabby Preludes (for a Dog)”.

As Harry said.

I fired him because he wouldn’t respect the authority of the President. That’s the answer to that. I didn’t fire him because he was a dumb son of a bitch, although he was, but that’s not against the laws for generals. If it was, half to three-quarters of them would be in jail.

1000 meters was about the limit of the effective range of Civil War artillery.

That fits if it was a 12 lb mountain howitzer (the sort of gun he would hump, and what the round looks like). It was at the limit of it’s range, failed to penetrate a double-brick wall.

Wealthy people who are not celebrities do not experience these problems.

They do have the problem of never being sure how many of their friends are really “friends”. How many of the people wanting to date them really care about their personality or intellect or sense of humor. Who really enjoys their company and wants to be with them, and who just love their house and their car and are already calculating possible divorce settlements before they even get to the second date.

Finally a news story about the bill:

Gov. Terry McAuliffe has recommended dramatic changes to a bill that would allow the state to use the electric chair as a fallback option in executions, suggesting instead that prison officials be allowed to make emergency deals with pharmacies to obtain drugs needed for lethal injections.

Under the governor’s recommendation, the identity of any pharmacy providing lethal drugs could be kept secret and would be protected from being outed in civil lawsuits.

McAuliffe is expected to formally announce the action during a news conference this morning at the Capitol.

The good thing that happened when the Republicans nominated Cuci is that it resulted in the Dems gaining the governor, lt governor, and AG’s office. I’m still no big fan of Terry but he’s been way better than Cuci would have been. But yeah that is the predicament we often find ourselves in. I do like Kaine though.

‘Morning, Lizards!

An update on this week’s Long Island Trump appearance - he’s scheduled to appear at a Suffolk County GOP fundraiser at a club called The Emporium in the Village of Patchogue.

For those not familiar, Patchogue is a small village on Long Island’s South Shore. Like many towns on LI, it kinda went dead economically for years, but is now making a strong comeback. Lots of good restaurants and cool music venues, plenty of new construction going on in the center of town.

This Trump appearance is rubbing the locals the wrong way, for a number of reasons. The Emporium is the one venue in Patchogue that has had real violence at their shows - shooting incidents, brawls in the street outside, like that. The easy-going Patch locals call it ‘asshole central.’ Kind of the most appropriate venue in town for Trump to appear.

But it’s located right in the middle of town, about a half block off the main drag. Between the Trump fans trying to get into the club and the protesters who are guaranteed to show up, it’s a lead-pipe cinch that it will tie the town in knots for hours. (By contrast, Trump’s Nassau County appearance last week was at a former industrial location, away from the town of Bethpage proper, so it was a much more manageable place to hold a political rally.)

Further complicating matters is the fact that the rally is going to take place on the same block as the murder of an Ecuadorean immigrant in 2008 by a gang of teens. Local clergy are criticizing the location as incredibly tone-deaf considering the high Hispanic population of the town, and are trying to convince SCGOP to move the rally to another venue. Whether SCGOP will even try to do so remains to be seen.

Also - the cheap tickets for the event were priced at $100 last week. Over the weekend, the venue raised the price to $150 per. Like I said, asshole central.

That’s what desperation tends to do to you: Leaves you grasping at any reed, no matter how thin, in the hopes that it will be your salvation.

I heard Bernie’s Senior Advisor Tad Devine asked about campaign manager Jeff Weaver saying Hillary help create ISIS. His answer; Jeff’s his own man and he is a tough ex-Marine.

There you go! Even the management has no control.

It really seems it is all a lark for these guys.

Everyone wondered if Trump was serious, and then as he got more and more out in the lead they wondered if he knew what he was actually going to do if he wins.

I get the same feeling from Bernie at times.

Yep, and he could be encouraging his supporters to get out there and be involved in the Congressional (and state, and local) primaries, party organizations, and Congressional general election races, which would increase his influence and goodwill and might cause the party to shift more to the left.

But that would be too “establishment” for him.

It’s why I’ve been reflecting in recent days on the ridiculousness of comparing Sanders to Obama in some effort to suggest that he could succeed. Obama was not an outsider in ‘08, not like Sanders is now. He was a rookie Congressman, but he was also an accomplished state-level legislator as well as the protege of Ted Kennedy. Even in ‘04, when he gave the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention, he was already seen as being groomed for a presidential run. So when he ran against Hillary four years later, he did so with the backing of powerful forces in the party.

By contrast, Sanders is an outsider and one who has done nothing to ingratiate himself to the people whose support he needs to be taken seriously as a candidate. The powerful members of the party don’t support him because he’s done little for them and has actually made a name for himself butting heads with them on major legislation. The rank-and-file see an old man with few accomplishment to his name and love for his supposed adopted party. And party supporters only see a man who is bashing his more accomplished opponent in an increasingly negative campaign.

And that’s not even getting into the more rabid of his fanbase, who are largely “independent” voters who are actively trying to divide the party in the hopes of creating a party with major backing that is more to their liking. They lack the initiative or will to build a viable third party, mirroring the same lacking in their candidate who chose to latch onto a major party rather than engage in the heavy-lifting necessary to stage a successful third party run.
