Just reflecting gratefully, respectfully,, not only because the above is a sweet track but because of everyone at this site expressing all kinds of views here over the years, and Charles’ dedication and courage - even if I have made the odd criticism about partisanship at large, my bugbear - he runs a fine service, and more power to him. I hope that doesn’t sound like random sycophancy, it is a note of support because he’s steering it all so very well.

More power to you.

i don’t know if anybody here has covered this, but aside from the notion that farkas admitted that obama committed a felony - “uncovering” names of surveilled persons - the right wing suckers have gotten it into their heads, via limbaugh, that obama’s current vacation on some rich person’s private island is actually him fleeing prosecution by hiding out in a place w/o an extradiction treaty with the u.s.

Judging by your LGF stats, I don’t think you have to worry about anybody thinking you’re some kind of sycophant.

You’re right, though. Charles provides a hell of a website for folks to engage with.

If/when real evidence of Trumpian malfeasance regarding Russia comes to light… the reaction of the wingularity will be very interesting.

Well, I am back from my state water operator’s school. I am not sure I passed the course (there were a lot of prerequisites to the course the state didn’t bother to tell the village about, and I spent a lot of time lost in class). We’ll see in a couple weeks if I passed the examination.

The test required memorising a lot of state and Federal regulations regarding public water supplies, as well as memorising a lot of calculations for things such as water disinfection and such. In the Navy we were taught (and rigorously followed) you never rely on memory to do anything … you always follow the publications.

As it was put in the class when we were given the four-inch thick book of state regulations: These are the things you can go to jail for.

All that for a job in this town that doesn’t pay anything.

Aside from that, today is the forty-ninth anniversary of my father’s death in Vietnam.

My wife wrote Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE) about her concerns with Judge Neil Gorsuch and her concerns about Russia’s alleged involvement in the Trump campaign being entangled.

(Sen. Fischer won’t respond to me but will respond to my wife. Something something Democratic village trustee I don’t represent Democrats)

I’m wondering if Senator Fischer is looking toward her reëlection campaign in this letter, because it sure doesn’t read like she is on the Trump Train now (indicating that Neil Gorsuch’s nomination needs to be looked at in light of the Russia allegations). On the other hand, Deb Fischer is the kind of person who would vote for Satan if he had an (R) after his name, so we’ll see.

Sen. Fischer was one of Donald Trump’s first supporters, but is up for reëlection in 2018. She responded to my wife with a link to an unclassified version of a document made available to the Senate which includes things that haven’t been covered by the media. It is quite the read. (That link is provided below in the letter)

Dear (my wife’s name that I will redact here),

Thank you for contacting me about the Supreme Court. It is good to hear from you.
Filling a vacancy for a lifetime position on the Supreme Court is a matter of great significance. Although the Constitution gives the president the authority to nominate an individual to serve on the Supreme Court, the Senate has the power to provide or withhold its “advice and consent.” I take this responsibility seriously. When reviewing a nomination for such an important position, I expect the nominee to have a keen legal mind, a clear record of applying our laws as written, and a steadfast commitment to the Constitution.

On January 31, 2017, President Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as an associate justice of the Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch attended Columbia as an undergraduate before earning a law degree from Harvard and a doctorate from Oxford University. He clerked for two Supreme Court justices, worked ten years at a firm in Washington, D.C., and served in the Justice Department. Judge Gorsuch currently serves as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, a position he has held for ten years. It is critical to note that Judge Gorsuch required Senate approval before he could take a seat on the circuit court. That approval was granted by voice vote in 2006, without objection. Some very notable Democrats supported him, including Barack Obama and Joe Biden, both members of the Senate at the time.

You discussed the Supreme Court vacancy in relation to investigations concerning Russia. Both the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence are investigating recent reports of communications between the administration and Russian officials. I believe this is an appropriate way to address the issue, as this matter is within the jurisdiction and role of the intelligence committees in their oversight of national security and intelligence. Regarding the possibility of cyber intrusions affecting our recent election, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the Director of Homeland Security issued a joint communication stating they were “confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations.” Recently, the DNI released the unclassified version of an intelligence community assessment of Russian activities and intentions in regard to recent U.S. elections. To read the report, please click on the following link: www (dot) dni (dot) gov/files/documents/ICA_2017_01 (dot) pdf

I changed the dots to dots so a huge pdf file didn’t show up in this comment.

The president and Members of Congress have received classified briefings on this assessment. As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I believe it is appropriate for Congress to look into the extent and source of this hacking. I also believe Congress has the capacity and specialization to investigate matters related to Russia while also reviewing Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court. This nomination will be considered first by the Senate Judiciary Committee. If Judge Gorsuch’s nomination is approved in the committee, it must then be considered by the full Senate. I am looking forward to a vigorous confirmation process in the Senate.
Thank you again for contacting me. If you have additional comments or questions, I urge you to visit my website: fischer.senate.gov.

Women Democratic Senators being denied visits with Judge Gorsuch by White House.
shareblue.com

According to Huffington Post, Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) have been denied meetings with Gorsuch, despite multiple requests. Duckworth’s office proposed several dates to meet with the judge, one of which he accepted and then canceled at the last minute, without offering any alternative times to meet, just a week before the Senate is scheduled to vote on his confirmation on April 7. (More at Share Blue)

As a spokesman for Duckworth’s office told Shareblue in an email:

If Judge Gorsuch had wanted to meet with the Senator, he shouldn’t have cancelled their meeting without offering any additional times that worked for him.

Meanwhile, Cortez Masto’s office was not even given that much. According to her spokesman, Rey Benitez:

“They said, ‘Give us a good reason why the judge should sit down with the senator,’” Benitez said. “That’s ridiculous that they’re asking us to do that. She’s a U.S. senator and she’s trying to do her job.”

Recycling is not available here.

I do rinse what I throw away (such as tin cans or jars) precisely for pest control (amongst other things, the Dumpster for the houses in my area of town is right across the alley from my backyard).

We reuse what we can, since recycling is not available.

Mylan NV said it was expanding a recall of its EpiPen allergy injection to some lots of the device that have been distributed in the U.S., after defects were found that could keep the injectors from working in an emergency.

Mylcan called the defect “extremely rare,” and is recalling 13 lots of the pens. The company said it will replace pens from the recalled lots at no cost, and that people should keep the ones they have until they get their replacements.

Perhaps Bernie needs to come down from his ivory tower and read some of these “Pity the Trump voters” articles, because then he might get an insight into just what these people really feel. Because the same theme keeps popping up in every article: “I didn’t think it would happen to me.”

“I was okay with throwing out ‘illegals,’ but I didn’t think it would happen to someone I knew/cared about.”

“I was okay with taking away healthcare from ‘those people,’ but not my healthcare!”

“I was okay with a Muslim ban, but don’t ban my love one!”

Etc, etc. They either endorsed it, made peace with it, or they lied to themselves. And you’re doing all three when you argue that they’re anything but what objective reality shows them to be.

Ruminating on my father’s death forty-nine years ago, I came across a quote I’ve heard many times:

A Veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to and including my life.”

I’ve wondered where that quote came from before, so I went searching. The Honolulu Advertiser claims it comes from Gene Castagnetti, Director of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

I just sent out my monthly E-mail denoting flag holidays in April (Easter is the only day designated in the Flag Code). I’ll leave aside for now my opinion on religious holidays being designated in the US Flag Code as particular days for displaying the flag. (I guess that sentence pretty much describes my opinion on that.)

Easter occurs this year on April 16, if you are a person who is interested in days the flag should be displayed.

A dirty rotten job, but someone in the village has to be the person in charge of ensuring the village’s flags are properly displayed (so they gave that job to the uber-leftie socialist because I don’t know why).

I don’t have any more respect for Lubbock’s two major political parties than I would for 2 rival gangs of drug dealers, maybe less. No drug dealer called me on the air and tried to contradict and “correct” me with alleged facts he had obviously just pulled out of his…….endless store of lies and misinformation. A certain neo-confederate Republican made a habit of that. This was the same one who thinks the Israeli Mossad should be investigated for complicity in the 1993 WTC bombing. On the other side, no drug dealer or other criminal came on and lied about the content of statements I had just made to thousands of people. A certain Occupy/Dem moonbat did just that, in the apparent belief that insulting me and making an ass of himself on the air was more rewarding than having my support or anyone else’s. And they wonder why nobody takes them seriously: The condederate nutburgers of the GOP wonder why Obama got re-elected and the trustafarian moonbats on the other side of the asylum wonder how tea party conservatives keep getting elected in this part of the country. A pox on both their (nut) houses.

NYTimes: Who’s Worth What at the White House: The Financial Disclosures

The Trump administration released the financial disclosure forms from members of the White House staff. Here is some of what they reveal.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner still benefit from their real estate empires.

■ The president’s daughter and son-in-law will remain the beneficiaries of a sprawling real estate and investment business still worth as much as $740 million, despite their new government responsibilities.

■ Ms. Trump will maintain a stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

■ Mr. Kushner’s financial disclosures said that Ms. Trump earned from $1 million to $5 million from January 2016 to March 2017, and puts the value of her stake at $5 million to $25 million.

That’s just the daughter and son-in-law, folks. There’s much, much more at the article….

Underwood’s feelings about the bill, however, are complex. She wants a replacement for Obamacare, but she wasn’t pleased with the AHCA either. “I didn’t really have strong, preconceived notions of how Washington would accomplish this,” she said. “If that means more government spending to make that happen or more free market enterprise options, it is more or less irrelevant to me. I just wanted to make it happen.

Driftglass calls out David Brooks’s endless “both siderism”:

David Brooks Is Feeling Guilty So We All Have to Pay

The problem, as Mr. David Brooks fucking well knows-but-will-never-say is that his Movement and his political party and his propaganda engines have all gone straight to the devil, on purpose. They’re all nuts. They have Brexited from the Enlightenment and they no longer honor the coins of that realm.

But of course Mr. Brooks’ is so deeply in hock to that Movement and that political party and that media that he cannot even hint that any of this is true. So he must lie continually (hence the obsessive Both Siderism) in the full knowledge that he is lying (hence the guilt.)

Secular philosophies that grew out of the Enlightenment have fallen apart.

No they haven’t. For the last 30 years they have been taking a shit-ton of incoming fire from the ghouls and con men who run Mr. Brooks’ Republican party, but the fundamentals of the Enlightenment aren’t going anywhere.

More at Driftglass, who had the insight to include the theme to Super Chicken.

More:

And here comes the Both Siderism…

We haven’t entered the age of milquetoast bourgeois relativism. Instead, society has become a free-form demolition derby of moral confrontation: the cold-eyed fanaticism of students at Middlebury College and other campuses nationwide; the rage of the alt-right; holy wars over transgender bathrooms; the furious intensity at every town-hall meeting on every subject.

Got that?

Students protesting “Bell Curve” Murray at one campus = “campuses nationwide” = the American fascists who now occupy the White House. And “holy wars over transgender bathrooms” = millions of Americans who are terrified and furious that the Randites and fascists who now run the government of the United States are trying to strip them of their health care.

The Virginian-Pilot reported that severe storms on Friday night struck the Hampton Roads region, which includes the cities of Virginia Beach and Norfolk. The newspaper quoted fire department officials in Virginia Beach as saying that about 50 homes there were damaged or destroyed.

The newspaper quoted National Weather Service official as saying that teams would be sent to the area Saturday to assess damage and try to confirm whether a tornado had touched down.

In the city of Chesapeake, the Real Life Christian Church was heavily damaged.

Senators grilled President Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of the Air Force on Thursday over $450,000 in alleged improper payments her private consulting firm collected from Energy Department laboratories, but their questions and Heather Wilson’s answers did little to shed additional light on the matter.

The consulting agreement in question dates to seven years ago, but several lawmakers pursued it on the grounds that it was relevant to her role in overseeing acquisition and contracting, one of the primary responsibilities of any military service secretary.

Wilson said Thursday that the deal was made after the president of the Sandia National Laboratory offered her a full-time position. She concluded the job was “not a good fit” for the time commitment she was willing to make, so the two settled instead on a “quarter-time” arrangement in which her sole-proprietorship consulting firm was paid $10,000 for 50 hours of her work each month.

According to the Energy Department’s inspector general, contracting officers at Sandia ran afoul of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) by not requiring Wilson’s firm to document any of the work she performed or the time she spent on the contracts; in some cases, the invoices her firm submitted said nothing more than “consulting services.”

Are there going to be any arrests for storing highly flammable materials underneath an interstate highway? Who’s stuff was it?

Before the arrests, attention turned Friday to the piles of supplies stashed beneath the highway. Russell McMurray, commissioner of the state Department of Transportation, said his agency owns the property and the material — some of it high-density plastic — had been there as long as 10 or 11 years. He said, however, that it was not combustible and posed no threat in itself.

“It’s no different than having a plastic cup in your cupboard,” McMurray said. “It needs something to ignite.”

Atlanta Fire Chief Joel Baker said he wasn’t sure how hot the fire would have to be to cause the bridge collapse, but said the stored material helped it get there.

I lived in a tiny rural town in northern Japan for a couple of years and was invited to play guitar with a local swing band. Mostly farmers, small-business owners, and local government employees, they were really good—mostly just from their high school days. I was the one faking it most of the time (rock background).

Trump’s busy deflecting.

Things he and the GOP can’t explain:

Why the heck did the GOP platform suddenly get a whole lot more pro-Putin the moment Trump began digging into the platform process? That’s a statement of intentions from the GOP, and they went from supporting Ukraine to taking a pro-Putin position.

That’s, um…. what’s the word I’m looking for…. suspicious given how Trump’s ongoing statements, positions, and actions have been to inure benefit to Putin and Russia.

Come on, Kushner’s got this all under control.

Did I say Kushner. I meant Bannon.

And by Bannon, I mean dumpster fire to sabotage functioning government.

Is it culturally/religiously insensitive to suggest starting a GoFundMe for a Sabbos goy so we don’t all die?

Not much to do in the winter in small town Japan, I guess. ;-)

I was really surprised during my travels there by all the jazz playing in bars, cafes, and restaurants as background music. In China, you might hear bossa nova, but never bebop, cool jazz, big band, or any other variety of jazz.

I honestly believe he forgets he’s the President, you know? Like he’s just some rich schlub commenting on what he hears on the TV, which has no real consequences, except that Presidents are not supposed to do that, and when they do, it has consequences.

Sooner or later, he’s going to tweet out an accidental confession of some crime he committed.

You made me google my college friend who spent time there off and on playing jazz piano in bars. I see he wrote a book on it, sort of. Sounds more scholarly than I remember his stories as being. And he teaches at a Midwestern college.

That’s exactly right. I had a fairly low salary and still came home with quite a bit of savings because there was nothing to do—nothing but travel to spend on. As for jazz, I know that US jazz musicians love playing Germany and Japan because of the depth of knowledge of the fans. How about China?

Dr Lizardo’s #74 got me started on my excursion down swing time lane: from Alice Francis, I went on to discover electro-swing and Pavel Stelar’s dubbing over Fred Astaire dance routines, then into straight swing jazz, and finally Swing Girls. Not bad for a free evening — new music and a cute movie I’ll probably watch again.

Here is Stelar’s Booty Swing, played over Fred and Ginger in Swing Time.

Pretty much what I do here, too, because my town does not have a lot of stuff to do in the evenings.

China is behind the times when it comes to jazz. There are clubs in the big cities like Shanghai, but not in the hinterlands where I live. So, any jazz musicians typically hit only the big cities. My favorite Japanese drummer, Senri Kawaguchi, did a China tour last year and did hit Chengdu (capital of Sichuan province) and Xi’an (capital of Sha’anxi province), but not MY capital city. I was bummed.

This morning I hit the First Saturday (of each month) garage sale at a local church and picked up 2 CDs: music from The Devil’s Toothpick, only because it has Gilberto Gil on it, and one of my customers has a Gilberto Gil icon on his bicycle, so I’ve made a point to listen to him at my few opportunities, and Steal This Disc 2. A buck a piece! How could I not?!?! (Of course, that ‘reasoning’ did not apply to the other 150 CDs they had for sale.) Then I peaked in at ‘my coffee shop’. The ‘good partner’ from the old version has taken over the property, as it was supposed to happen on this date. He’s planning to open at the middle of the month. Yay! He even has the big sign with the new name ready to be hanged.

It’s all a bunch of purity ponies who are fighting to see who can take the most stuff away from grandma.

Trump/Ryan: We can take away coverage from 24 million
Amash/Free-dumb caucus: We can take away more; you’re leaving some stuff in govt control.
Trump/Ryan: But we’ve got shiny tax cuts for millionaires
Amash/Free-dumb: Too much goes to the poors. Do more or else we wont vote.

Trump/GOP caucus: BUT WE WANT OBAMACARE REPEALED NOW!!! WAAAH!

All: It’s YOUR fault Democrats. If you didn’t pass this law, we wouldn’t be here demanding slashing and burning all of Medicare/Medicaid and taking coverage away from millions. If we had our way, they’d never had gotten the coverage in the first place!

Cool. I went down the rabbit hole a bit too and ran into this:

The movie got bad reviews but this sequence is cool to me. Hamburg, 1939, when Swing could cost you…
