No, unless the Senate goes into recess for more than three days.

The appointment must be approved by the end of the next Senate session, or the appointment ends.

And remember that Turtle Fucker McConnell is trying to delay the summer recess until he can strip away healthcare from 32M+ people.

Also, had the primaries come out differently and Sen. Sanders had won, she would have been running against him, not Mrs. Clinton (and Mr. Trump might very likely still have won).

Would there be interest in a Page about a resurgent scam going around where people are trying to do transfers or write checks on the Federal Reserve. This bad craziness is going around Facebook and YouTube. Here’s the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on it:

Video Scam Targeting Federal Reserve Bank Routing Numbers; Prosecution Possible
July 2017
Recently, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York became aware of a scheme promoted in online videos whereby individuals claim that U.S. citizens may make payments using fictitious accounts held at the Federal Reserve Banks. These fictitious accounts have been most commonly styled as secret accounts and/or Social Security trust accounts, and the individuals publishing the videos claim that substantial amounts are held within them for each U.S. citizen. To facilitate the scheme, the individuals publishing the videos have also offered bogus information on how other individuals may use online portals, such as bill-pay websites, to initiate payments from the fictitious accounts using Federal Reserve Bank routing numbers.

More at the link, but that’s what I’m talking about: newyorkfed.org

This scam has gone around before, but it seems to have caught fire in the last two weeks.

well, its patently obvious that Trump will not leave voluntarily… I mean, they could show him the pee tape, in front of Melania and then threaten to runn it, uncut on CNN and he would probably not give a fuck.

I think the only way to get him to go, is to publish just how poor he is and display, who really owns him, show the spreadsheet that has the dotted lines and solid lines as to what his assets are, what money he has and who really owns the businesses with his name.

Then, maybe you can shame him off the stage, otherwise, you’re looking at some kind of GOP revolt, be it the moderates or the tea party types who have finally had enough of this guy shitting on their brand, it will not be because of ethics or morals, although I’m sure that there will be lip service paid to them…

What will cause this epiphany will be the inability to get anything else passed, no HC bill, no tax cut, no infrastructure, no budget… it all goes up in flames… then and only then, when the realization that he and Pence (and maybe even those folks that sat on the treason knowledge will go) and then the GOP splits into its nihilist wing and those that simply choose to discriminate in the name of sound fiscal conservatism.

The first and foremost thing for most Republican politicians is to secure their future sinecure (reëlection).

As more and more of their wealthy donors say “enough, we didn’t buy you for this,” and Rs in vulnerable seats see their grasp on power slipping, Trump will be out the door.

Indiana is still looking into Mike Pence’s hacked E-mail account (and his wife’s) on which he conducted state business in Indiana (not sure how this is going in Indiana, but that could bring state charges).

I read parts of it as he was working on it, so it’s going to be funny and snarky.

His name sounds familiar, though I am sure I’ve never met him.

I have some money invested in Bitcoin and Ethereum. Not enough to put me in the poorhouse if it all goes bust, but for now it’s given me decent returns. The technology behind the concept I believe is sound, but the people using the concept are somewhat less trustworthy. The Bitcoin community (users, miners, code devs, etc.) have been divided about changes to the basic code, and a major change is due to take place Aug. 1. There’s talk of there being up to six different types of Bitcoin by the end of the year, because the community is diverse and divided between anarchists, libertarians and more rational people who favor some centralization. Basically, a mess.

Ethereum, OTOH, had some sketchy aspects from the start, with the devs raking in a shit-ton of money at the launch, enough to attract the attention of the SEC. Meanwhile, there are scores of other projects being built on the Ethereum platform, which have also made those devs and project leaders a shit-ton of money. Well, money represented as the coins they have sold to willing investors. Cashing out millions of dollars tends to attract attention from all sorts of people.

I don’t believe all of these cryptocurrencies are scams. Most are, but a few address some real-life financial issues in a logical and secure way. The trick is determining which are going to go bust (or to jail) and which will survive into the succeeding decades.

Anyway, I’ll keep an eye out for David Gerard’s books.

nytimes.com (We’ll Miss You Sean Spicer, more at the link)

Today, after 183 days, 58 news conferences, one perfect “Saturday Night Live” skewering, and countless packs of stress gum, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, has resigned. But first, he slammed the door in an ABC News reporter’s face.

Reports indicate that Mr. Spicer quit because President Trump had appointed Anthony Scaramucci White House communications director. After all that’s happened in the last six months, for Mr. Spicer, The Mooch was a bridge too far.

The door slam was more befitting a moody teenager than the man whose job it is to communicate, but it was the perfect, flouncing end to Mr. Spicer’s tenure. How else could a six-month run of lying, whining and whining about being asked about lying end? All that was missing was a shrieked “I hate you!”

Park Service to raise senior citizen lifetime park passes from $10 to $80, on August 28.

The new price reflects the system-wide general park pass price, so essentially a senior citizen discount disappears from the Park Service on that day.

Passes issued before August 28 will still be good for life.

Disabled vet passes are not affected (they are still free).

Trump, probably not. Not crafty enough, and also entangles him if Sessions has stuff on him.

The family of an 11-year-old girl murdered last week in New Jersey have implored President Donald Trump to let them into the US to attend her funeral.

AbbieGail Smith was allegedly stabbed in the neck by her neighbour while taking out the rubbish on 12 July.

Her father, Kenroy Smith, was deported from the US to Jamaica in 2001 following a cannabis arrest.

The State Department is not saying whether they will grant the visas (the girl’s sister in Jamaica is also denied), citing “confidentiality.”

Dr Lizardo  Jul 22, 2017 • 2:38:27am

So, Jennifer Rubin, in her WaPo opinion piece “This Presidency can’t be saved. It’s all downhill from here” outlines four scenarios, as follows:

In light of news reports that President Trump’s team is scouring the record for conflicts of interest on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s team (the essence of chutzpah) and contemplating pardons (of aides and/or himself), it is worth considering how this may all play out.

We offer several scenarios:

1. Trump orders Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Mueller. Sessions quits, as does Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand. Eventually someone agrees to fire Mueller. Republicans either will not pursue impeachment or are obliged to begin impeachment hearings but refuse to vote out articles of impeachment. In 2018, Democrats sweep to victory in the House and gain a seat or two in the Senate. Trump cannot be removed (two-thirds of the Senate is required for removal), but his presidency is in tatters. Some aides or ex-aides face criminal prosecution. LESSON: Republicans’ failure to stand up to Trump early dooms his presidency and crashes the GOP.

2. Trump orders Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Mueller. Sessions quits, as does Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand. Eventually someone agrees to fire Mueller. Republicans, together with Democrats, pass by a veto-proof majority an independent prosecutor statute. Before impeachment proceedings can finish, Democrats sweep to victory in 2018 in the House and gain a seat or two in the Senate. Trump cannot be removed, but his presidency is in tatters. Some aides or ex-aides face criminal prosecution. LESSON: Fire Mueller, and Congress will hire him back.

3. Republicans join Democrats in warning Trump not to fire Mueller. Mueller remains and keeps digging. Mueller subpoenas damaging documents; Trump refuses to comply. A court orders him to comply. He doesn’t. We have a full-blown constitutional crisis. LESSON: Congress cannot delegate all responsibility to Mueller. It must conduct a parallel investigation and, if need be, commence impeachment proceedings.

4. Republicans join Democrats in warning Trump not to fire Mueller. Mueller remains and keeps digging. Mueller subpoenas damaging documents; Trump refuses to comply. A court orders him to comply. He declares this a witch hunt, an attack on his family (or whatever). Then he resigns, claiming he has already made America great. He tells the country that Vice President Pence will carry on in his place. LESSON: Congress must protect Mueller and preserve the possibility that Trump may be forced to resign.

Interesting observations on her part.

OK……off to do the weekly shopping. Back later; in the meantime, what do you think of Ms. Rubin’s scenarios?

re: #152 Dr Lizardo

I’m afraid that she’s not taking into account who’s going to be allowed to vote in 2018, and that there’s a fifth, most likely scenario where ‘1’ starts to play out, and then, just like Russia in 2012, it stops because the playing field’s been tilted.

Trumpkins might *finally* realise they elected a king afterwards, but it’s too late to do anything other than hope that after Trump dies, his heirs can’t maintain the oligarchy and we might therefore get something resembling a democratic republic by 2030. More likely, they find someone to keep things going and the world outside France and Germany is safe for authoritarianism (since China loves it as well as Russia doing so) until I’m in the ground at least, and I’m 40.

The least “Destroy The Entire Country” option is option 4 and that one still makes Watergate look like a disagreement about pizza toppings. EDIT: It does seem like a replay of Watergate at first, but the Republicans are different and far more dangerous now.

Then there’s option 5, Mueller is fired, Republicans close ranks, Democrats unable to win majority thanks to gerrymandering and voter suppression. I can’t really speculate on what happens after that, except *BOOM*

I see option 5 as more likely than 3 or 4.

Like it or not, I’m honestly wondering if there were ever a single country to destroy, any more than there was a single Austria-Hungary or Yugoslavia.

It seems increasingly likely that a bunch of Confederate descendants were secretly never in line with the idea that Californians or New Yorkers were of their nation, and I’m not entirely sure that, even if the original split attempt was masterminded from Moscow, said Californians and New Yorkers don’t now agree with them (we’re talking people who were able to hide how bigoted they were for their entire lifetimes, in most cases, before intentionally setting up the Voting Rights and Civil Rights Acts to be declared unconstitutional. I’ll have no more trust for any of them even if we can short-circuit a renewal of Jim Crow, and an authoritarian state; than any wizard in Rowling’s 1990s should have had for ‘reformed’ Death Eaters).

Watching that DW documentary, a couple of things strike me… They don’t venture much outside the borders of Germany as to the network of organizations. Also, the organizations in the network for the large part formed at roughly the same time, not only in Germany but elsewhere in the West. The “plausible deniability” ploy is common.

I’ve been hearing rumors about people having been suckered in by some sort of “global conservative revolution” scam, the perpetrators being the power clique in the Kremlin, but there’s contantly this distance which keeps it from being blown wide open. The US is one of the places it seems most apparent at this juncture.

Option 6:

Trump keeps talking about firing Mueller, but can’t get anyone to do it for him. And his own team can’t get united behind the idea.

Look… even if Sessions quits (which I can’t really see happening, only because Sessions is enough of a stooge devoid of principles), Rod Rothenstein becomes acting AG. Trump could do to Rothenstein what he did to Sally Yates, but that’s assuming his team is unified behind the idea. I don’t think they are. See this appointment of Mooch as WH comms director… Bannon was/is opposed to that shyster, and Trump did it anyway. This could devastate his inner circle more than you think.

In the end, it’s another empty threat, Sessions doesn’t quit, and Trump’s legal team of Sekulow, Cobb, Dewey, Cheatem and Howe continue to be outmatched and outwitted by the varsity squad.

Midterm elections come and while the DNC does well enough to win a thin majority in the Senate, gerrymandering and voter suppression ensure the GOP maintain the House by a thin sliver. 2019 begins with the House GOP setting out their plan for the next two years: Run down the clock. Meet calls for impeachment with “He’ll be gone in two years,” while using the time on the clock to pass partisan bills they know won’t pass in the Senate but will help boost their support amongst their base.

Any scenario that relies upon the GOP seeing the light, realizing that Trump is a danger not simply to the party but to the country, and turning on him should be taken with a Texas-sized grain of salt. There’s no evidence whatsoever that such a GOP exists anymore, that there is a modern day Goldwater to venture to 1600 Penn Ave and tell Trump that he needs to resign “for the good of the party.” Or that, even if one exists, they could get it through his rapidly-degrading brain that there’s no future for him if the party bails on his ass.

It’s the cases of financial impropriety preceding January 21, and/or even his campaign, that Donnie may really be worried about… the ones that Eric Schneiderman is investigating and whom Preet Bharara got fired over.

I could be terribly wrong, but from the sounds of it, that might not even warrant impeachment?

Yeah, just imagine Trump’s reaction if it’s ultimately revealed at the state level that he’s nothing more than a colossal fraud. That he’s nothing even remotely what he’s claimed to be and now he stands exposed as a flim-flam artist before the entire world: everybody pointing and laughing at him.

Someone probably told Trump that firing Preet Bharara didn’t erase the existence of his investigation into Trump, and that Mueller would have access to it. That would be more devastating than Comey, because Preet’s investigation was more personal and threatened to expose more… so much more.

Thus the preemptive slam on Mueller, the “self-pardon” trial balloon, the rumors of firing Mueller and now attempting to blame Clinton again (although the Sessions leak is not from Team Mueller, it still fits the overall pattern).

What I’m seeing is someone who now knows he’s in deep, deep trouble and desperately trying to find a way out.

I wonder if he purposely wrote it with the errors to tank it.

It really does seem the healthcare bill by the Republicans has turned nuclear on them and they don’t want to touch it. But they made so much about it they have to touch it.

So, Mitch goes off into his own secret little room and conjures up a bill that may just blow itself to pieces before Mitch ever has to do anything further with it like put it up for a vote.

They may also be counting on Trump noise getting so high they can slowly put healthcare out of their agenda and claim the country has much more dire needs right now and they will repair the ACA for now and get back to a new bill later which never comes.

re: #165 Targetpractice

Scenario 5: Trump fires Mueller, Republicans circle wagons in Congress and defend his actions as being within his powers as president and fend off talk about impeachment. Midterm elections come and while the DNC does well enough to win a thin majority in the Senate, gerrymandering and voter suppression ensure the GOP maintain the House by a thin sliver. 2019 begins with the House GOP setting out their plan for the next two years: Run down the clock. Meet calls for impeachment with “He’ll be gone in two years,” while using the time on the clock to pass partisan bills they know won’t pass in the Senate but will help boost their support amongst their base. Trump’s presidency basically becomes a hollow shell of itself, with nobody taking the man seriously and everybody counting the days until 2021 when whoever the DNC runs against him takes office.

That scenario actually has some tinges of positive optimistic outcomes in it. At least the Republicans aren’t taking over the entire government forever and we’re all gonna die. That is a good thing!

But I think it still gives the Republicans too much power. The people are still angry and don’t really know who to take it out on. They really didn’t like the usual Republicans look how Trump walked all over them. Usually that much unrest manifests itself into a “throw all the bums out” kind of scenario that opens up the playing floor even with gerrymandering and voter suppression.

Add in an 11% Congressional Approval rating and 2018 is still open for the Dems to get a majority. It’s volatile out there. I think it is not always good to look at all of this from the politicians and their political party. It still comes down to the people and they are a wild…wild card.

The Democrats need some coordinated and very creative marketing strategy based on the Republicans putting Trump into the presidency and protecting him all the while doing nothing for the people.

Unshaken Defiance  Jul 22, 2017 • 7:53:32am

Changeup-So thanks to LWC, we are going top see Chris Nolans Dunkirk tomorrow. He found the one theater near us that is actually projecting in 70mm film. CNN has a great article on why that is a better way to see a grand spectacle film. IMO better picture than digital and a very wide format that complements rather than tries to limit your eyes looking around on the screen. Room to compose a far better scene. Sadly CNN also has that page all gummed up with autoplay video that like to jump in the way in an extra annoying way.
So…

David Schwartz, chief curator of New York’s Museum of the Moving Image, explained that before digital projection, films were typically shot on 35mm film. 70mm was another option that was twice as big. Since the size of the film was bigger, it changed the look and experience for moviegoers.
“You get a much bigger image, you get more detail, you get more light going through the film from the projector,” Schwartz said. “You basically get a much brighter more vivid image.”
The format came to prominence in feature films during the 1950’s and 1960’s when filmmakers used it to create epics like “Lawrence of Arabia” that felt bigger than the screen itself. Then with the rise of smaller multiplexes, changing tastes, and 70mm being expensive to both print and project, it fell out of vogue.
The medium has since staged a brief comeback thanks to big-time directors like Quentin Tarantino, who used it to film 2015’s “The Hateful Eight.” Now, “Dunkirk” looks to continue the tradition.

But if you like WW2 films, Dunkirk is going to play well for you regardless of your theater. They had me at “it has Spitfires flying in it”.

From her website:

Senator Flake has failed to deliver during his decades in DC - he is simply too weak to fight for Arizona. Over the course of this campaign, we will show the stark difference between our philosophies and our track records. A glaring example of our differences is that while millions of us fought to stop Hillary Clinton and elect President Trump in 2016, Senator Flake supported the Clinton crime family by being a vocal member of NeverTrump and casting his ballot for Evan McMullin.

I think she got the wrong family for “crime family”.

I’ve gotten so many awful sunburns as a child and adult, and now that I know skin cancer (melanomas) run in my family, I cover up when I’m in the sun, even in Las Vegas. Long sleeves, long pants, hat, sunscreen. I’ve told my kids that I’d wear a burqini. It would cover everything, including my scalp. I’m not really into getting into pools or going to the beach so I don’t really worry about swimwear for me.

Abraham Lincoln: “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

Franklin Roosevelt: “Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort. The joy and moral stimulation of work no longer must be forgotten in the mad chase of evanescent profits. These dark days will be worth all they cost us if they teach us that our true destiny is not to be ministered unto but to minister to ourselves and to our fellow men.”

Dwight Eisenhower: “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone.”

Ronald Reagan: “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”

George W. Bush: “As I begin, I thank President Clinton for his service to our Nation, and I thank Vice President Gore for a contest conducted with spirit and ended with grace.
I am honored and humbled to stand here where so many of America’s leaders have come before me, and so many will follow. We have a place, all of us, in a long story, a story we continue but whose end we will not see. It is a story of a new world that became a friend and liberator of the old, the story of a slaveholding society that became a servant of freedom, the story of a power that went into the world to protect but not possess, to defend but not to conquer.”

Happy Birthday, Henry Thoreau, you gassy old crank

Over at the New York Times, historian Douglas Brinkley argues that Thoreau, who died in 1862, influenced the creation of our national parks. Thoreau certainly was an inspiration for Smokey the Bear. His neighbors called Thoreau “the woods burner” for setting fire to 300 acres of local woodlands, almost eradicating Concord in the process.

Here is Thoreau’s classic, unrepentant response: “I have set fire to the forest, but I have done no wrong therein … it was a glorious spectacle, and I was the only one there to enjoy it.”

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.

Had it been up to others, Britain would have squandered its air defenses to fight a losing Battle for France and been left without anything to stop the Luftwaffe blitz.

Scarab deletes his old tweets so he doesn’t have to explain his evolution.

As somebody who’s gone through somewhat of an evolution, this does not engender trust, it destroys it. Being able to explain one’s personal change and evolution is an opportunity, not an exposure. This guy doesn’t want the distraction from his job as Chief Bullshit Artist.

re: #317 Blind Frog Belly White

Zeena The Worrier Princess so worships the ground Mrs. FBW walks on that when Mrs. FBW goes out, Zeena will often lie on the rug by the front door, whimpering piteously. At times like that, she can only be distracted by scritches, treats, and walkies.

Zeena also tells Mrs. FBW when it’s time to retire for the evening, standing in front of her barking till she gets up and goes to bed.

It’s one of the clearest examples of a dog choosing her human I’ve ever seen.

Of course, when we got her, Zeena was supposed to be MY dog.

Same thing in my house except it’s my dog who waits for me and looks for me when I’m not here, waiting in front of the door into the garage during the day when I’m out of town. She was NOT supposed to be my dog. I had no choice in the matter. She definitely chose me.

re: #315 Romantic Heretic

Now I’m going to rant a little about Hugh Dowding. The man spent the decade before the battle preparing for it. He nursed the planes, the radar and the control system into being. He commanded them in the battle, and he won it.

The British government thanked him by firing him and sending him to America to buy aircraft. Assholes.

Which is still nowhere near as awful as what they did to Alan Turing. His work shortened the war by 2 years, saved tens of millions of lives, he deserved every medal and honor ever. And they drove him to suicide.

re: #350 Blind Frog Belly White

From Vance’s column…

This scenario is a simplistic version of how many conservatives view the health care market. According to them, there was a time when the market worked reasonably well: Providers competed to offer quality services and consumers shopped around, curbing prices. Then the government, with its mandates and subsidies and regulations, wounded the market, driving up costs and decreasing quality.

And oddly enough, there’s no indication he realized this was a joke when he wrote it.

Posted this in another thread, but for a brief, glorious moment this was Scaramucci’s Wiki page:

Anthony Scaramucci (born January 6, 1964) is an American entrepreneur, financier, political figure, and author.[1] In June 2017, he became a senior vice president and chief strategy officer at the U.S. Export-Import Bank[2], and on July 21, 2017, President Donald Trump appointed him the White House Communications Director.[3]

On July 21, 2017 he buried his face deep in Donald Trumps butt. On January 12, 2017, President Donald Trump announced his intent to appoint Scaramucci Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs.[4] Scaramucci’s swearing-in was reportedly delayed by an extended review of his finances by the Office of Government Ethics,[5][6] although the ethics office denied that clearance was necessary before making White House appointments.[7] Ultimately, George Sifakis was appointed instead.[8]

Following the 2016 election, Scaramucci served on the Presidential Transition Team Executive Committee.[9] In 2005, Scaramucci founded global investment firm SkyBridge Capital,[10] serving as co-managing partner before selling the company in early 2017[11] to take a role in the Trump administration.

It’s funny - the Greyhounds have never gutted a plushie. Our Golden used to do that within a day of receiving them. Zeena doesn’t play with them so much anymore (not dignified!), but Rango loves to toss them, and go find them and toss them again, though recently he’s been taking them out in the yard when he does Zoomies*. He’ll usually do a lap or two with them in his mouth before he drops them, runs away, runs back and grabs them (repeated multiple times).

*Greyhounds, about once a day, get a wild look in their eye, and go tearing around at full speed for about 2-5 minutes. Rango runs circles around our flowerbed, up to 15 circuits. Then they come in, pant like mad, flop on the floor, and sleep some more. Zeena doesn’t do it anymore (not dignified!)

We had Salukis. They did the run thing, too. Our farm has a very steep hill a hundred feet tall or more. When you climb it, you put out your hand, and you are touching the hill. Our last Saluki, when he was young, would do loops up and around the hill several times, then come in, take two deep breaths, and be back in calm mode. No panting. What a heart lung machine!
