It’s astounding that the story is the Nunes Memo didn’t work as a political maneuver and not that Republicans were willing to destroy the FBI and betray the country.

The FBI were betraying our Chosen Leader!

The US government is staffed and run by professionals whose careers span more than one Presidency. They are expected to maintain institutions and processes. These people are often specialists and cannot just be replaced with someone whose political views are more closely in line with the current administration.

Naturally they are expected to serve and obey the Chief Executive but they are also aware that the current one will not be the only one they serve in the course of their service.

That does not make them Deep State. It makes them civil servants.

America elected a President with no history of public service, and a history of private business that is generally unknown as he has declined to release his tax returns.

I caught the last 20 minutes or so of This American Life today. The story was about a Louisiana state lawmaker who was asked by her parish sheriff to sponsor legislation banning toy guns from schools because with school shootings up he doesn’t want his officers mistakenly called to a school and shooting a kid with a toy gun by mistake. Seems pretty simple, right? The lawmaker is a republican woman who carries a loaded Glock in her purse and had a reputation as strong 2A advocate. But when gun folks heard about it they turned on her. It became the talk of gun rights radio shows and even the NRA’s 24-hour cable channel. Ultimately she had to withdraw her bill and she’s now labeled a RINO, all over an attempt to protect innocent kids from mistakenly getting shot. I won’t tell you why because I’m sure you can guess why the gun nuts (mostly GOP now) opposed her.

I know there are responsible gun owners and enthusiasts here. I’m not one. My purpose isn’t to criticize gun ownership here, but rather to point to the extreme paranoia on the right and its close relationship to the 2A issue. (The reporter tried to draw an equivalency to liberals and abortion, by the way….)

Gun nuts are poisoning the issue. The most messed up thing to me has been seeing the NRA oppose things they once strongly promoted. And then there’s how openly bigoted they’ve become with kooks like Loesch.

You know what I love about the Trumpers is for all their disdain of “big city elitists”, they’ve embraced a New York elitist. I never thought that would happen TBH. I thought Christie wouldn’t resonate with the more rural/suburban based GOP base since Christie’s style like Trump’s is more how sould I say urban.

MN is giving the superbowl visitors a nice sampling of our weather this weekend. It’s snowing right now and it’s making driving a hassle. 2-3” by the time it’s done. Temps are going to drop all night until it’s -3 by tomorrow morning and only warming up to +5 on Sunday.

We’ve also got this per the NWA:

… Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect from 4 am to noon CST
Sunday…

* what… very cold wind chills expected. The cold wind chills will
cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.
Expect wind chills to range from 20 below zero to 30 below
zero.

* Where… portions of central, east central, south central and
southwest Minnesota.

* When… from 4 am to noon CST Sunday.

re: #47 FormerDirtDart

I too find it hard to believe that the general public gives a second thought to Afghanistan.

This is the problem with a perpetual war - it has its own life.

Empires of the past were in perpetual war, and in hindsight it is easy to see that such things eventually leach the life out of a society, but while embedded at the time an ordinary person won’t recognize the problem.

In some ways the US today is less influential than it was just 10 years ago. This has to do with Trump, yes, but also the simple fact that we’re becoming more caught up in our own slow-boil angst and less inclined to take on global projects.

And part of the reason for the latter is very much to do with Afghanistan and the so-called War on Terror.

Rotten Tomatoes has issued a statement in wake of an anti-Disney fringe group threatening to use the site as a platform for review bombing Black Panther later this month.

This isn’t the first time the group, “Down With Disney’s Treatment of Franchises and its Fanboys,” has attempted to review bomb a movie. Created by an anonymous person who aligns themselves with the alt-right, a radical movement that propagates racist, misogynistic, xenophobic and various other hateful ideologies, the group campaigned against Star Wars: The Last Jedi in December for the film’s inclusion of female characters and “men being portrayed as idiots,” according to Huffington Post.

..

“There was a time we ruled society and I want to see that again,” the creator said.

There is more to this than you think.

In my area I’m regularly addressed, in person, as being Jewish. Everything from the nice “Happy Hanukkah,” the occasional “Chag Sameach,” and sometimes the churchcreepy “We’re big supporters of Israel (by which they mean Bibistan).”

Admittedly, I have twice claimed to be Jewish to avoid incredibly aggressive people trying to save me…one in between the fancy cheese and the self-serve coffee. But that is a Matrix level of panopticism.

Belafon  Feb 3, 2018 • 1:10:17pm

Back from the Rockwall Democratic lunch. We have two Democrats running in our primary this year, which is two more people than we had running against John Ratcliffe in the last two elections. The fourth district of Texas, which he represents, is the 5th most conservative district in the nation, and John is the most conservative voter in Congress.

One of the candidates is Lander Bethel. He’s a Presbyterian minister whose for more spending on education and health care, and reining in military spending. His big story was getting to sit next to Ratcliffe on the way back to Texas after they stopped attempting to repeal Obamacare back in April of last year, and having to explain to Ratcliffe what “entitlement” actually meant.

The other is Catherine Krantz. Util about four years ago, she was living in Mexico, working for nonprofits in a coastal town. She currently has dual citizenship with both US and Mexico. She said she acquired Mexican citizenship to show she was invested in making the area better. Four years ago, she moved back to Texas to take over her dad’s small business near one of the lakes (I don’t remember which one). She’s very much about schools and healthcare, and how we as Democrats need to work on bringing people, especially the young and rural people, into the Democratic party.

About her youth outreach, she told about a 17 year old in Royse City running for city council, and a 19 year old in Mt. Pleasant. She said she made the mistake of asking if he was old enough to vote and he said not only that, but he’s precinct chair in his district. She also mentioned the need to make the party more inclusive for younger people. In one area, a young adult wanted to get involved with the Democrats in the area, but they we’re doing the “wait your turn” so he went and started his own group. She’s trying to bring him back in.

It’s not going to be easy, especially since this is a big district , 16 counties, and Ratcliffe has $1M on hand. But we’ve got candidates running.

I grabbed a yard sign from her.

House Approves New Payday Loan With 200 Percent Interest Rate

The Indiana House approved legislation Wednesday to create a new type of payday loan - with interest rates of up to 200 percent - that opponents argue amounts to predatory lending.

The legislation creates a loan of between about $600 and $1,500, with a term of up to 12 months. Rep. Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) says the loans are aimed at those with poor credit who have nowhere else to turn.

Tennessee Man Concerned Google Home Will Not Answer Questions about Jesus Christ (goes to The New Yorker)

If you ask an Amazon Echo “Who is Jesus Christ,” the robot will prattle off something from Wikipedia. “Jesus, also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth,” and so forth and so on. But if you ask a Google Home, you’ll get crickets. (Actually, the device will say, “I’m not sure how to help you with that.”) David Sams, a man from Tennessee, is very concerned about this conspiracy. “It’s kinda scary, it’s almost like Google has taken Jesus and God out of smart audio,” Sams told WJLA. “First it started with schools.”

(more, with video)

We don’t have things around here like Amazon Echo or Google Home, so I can’t test this … I’m assuming the man cited (and his friends, there are more of them in the article) gave an unclear question or something, so it must be a conspiracy!!!!

And when was “smart audio” a thing that Google could take Jesus out of?

Dooood. Are you kidding? If mitt wasn’t a known entity and Mormon in UT, he’d be primaried out of the GOP.

The GOP is nothing but cranks and crackpots. Sane people can’t get out of any primary.

And I hope and pray that no GOPer is ever elected again. We need two sane parties. The GOP can’t ever be that. Not now. Not after the last 20 years. It and Fox need to die if the US is to survive.

You miss the whole point. Mitt can be elected a Senator from Utah. So, he won’t be primaried out. I don’t want him for anything more than a wrench in the machine gears tearing up the party machine. I want the party torn down too. I think Mitt can help with that. I don’t want him elected to anything but as Senator.

I think the point is to be outraged at liberals (or in the case of Google, libertarians) taking God out of the public square as their lord Satan commands them!!!!

It doesn’t even matter if it’s true (that Google Home does or doesn’t answer a question about Jesus). There are videos all over YouTube already claiming Google is trying to destroy Christianity.

Not including the whole Wiki entry because it’s a spoiler.

“The Nine Billion Names of God” is a 1953 science fiction short story by British writer Arthur C. Clarke. The story was among the stories selected in 1970 by the Science Fiction Writers of America as one of the best science fiction short stories published before the creation of the Nebula Awards. It was reprinted in The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Volume One, 1929-1964.”

Trump’s about to go on a rage bender after a day on the links in Mar a Lago.

Perfect.

Trump hired Carter Page to be part of his campaign and to advise him.

Who was Carter Page actually working for?

As Carter Page tells it, Page was advising the Kremlin for years. There’s a reason he was under surveillance by the US Government and there were FISA warrants issued to track his communications.

Page is just one of many in this cabal of cronies, this criminal syndicate that Trump surrounded himself with.

And all they do is lie about everything they did, especially the meeting with Russians in June 2016 that also meant that Kushner repeatedly lied on his SF86s (each 5 year prison sentences under 18 USC 1001 - and why is he still with security clearances?!).

The entire thing is rotten to the core, and even if Page is a counterintel asset, then this memo does more damage by its release than anything else.

Everything Trump has done has undermined US national security and strategic interests around the world, enabling Russia to expand influence.

I hope Democrats say exactly what you just laid out so succinctly in all the Sunday talk shows. Our side needs to push back harder. They need to just come out and say “Carter Page is a spy for Russia who deserved to be under government surveillance. Period.” Repeat that over and over again. Go on the offensive with the truth.

I used to work about 5 blocks away. I went to eat there a couple of times.

There was a Mickey’s near University and Snelling in the 70’s that my band used to visit often late night after gigs. We used to call eating there “meal roulette” because it would never fail that at least one of us would have to reorder our meal because they didn’t have the food or a piece of kitchen equipment was shut down. It seemed pretty random.

Are Democrats invited?

The way I’ve heard Sunday political shows go is:

When Democrats are in power, we need nothing but Republicans, so they can explain the opposition position.

When Republicans are in power, we need nothing but Republicans, so they can explain the majority position.

The election of Donald Trump is very much about older Americans afraid their God isn’t there anymore.

This is exactly the case with my parents, they are concerned but also anticipating the impending Rapture. Where they differ is my mother worries that my agnostic family will not be saved in time, while my father cannot wait for sinners to get their comeuppance
