The same people who will cheer this because Trump’s being “tough” would be the first to whine if any Democrat, but especially Obama, had done the same.

Lily update for Balloon Juice readers: Lily made kind of a last second recovery last night. She’s still very sick, so John hasn’t brought her home yet. Even the vets don’t really know what’s going to happen. One thing for sure is that John is facing thousands of dollars worth of veterinary bills.

I have a T-shirt sold by a Chinese clothing line (Metersbonwe) with the cartoon Beatles on it. One of my middle school students was wearing one, and he was 14 at the time. He bought it because it was cute-looking, not because he knew who the cartoon figures were.

I had to explain that, and also why his American teacher was so excited to see the shirt.

People blame Yoko for the break-up, and while she may have a contributing factor, the boys were not really getting along very well together leading up to the split. Now Sir Paul and Sir Richard (Ringo) seem wistful about it all.

re: #29 Belafon

I just sent this to the gal I want to be the Democratic candidate to defeat our Republican congressperson in CO District 3.

The caucus is in June, and guess what! Colorado passed a law in 2016 that allows people to participate in caucuses and primaries regardless of your registered political affiliation. I voted no because I thought it would result in mucho ratfucking in how parties choose their representatives. Well, there were plenty of third party Bernie Jill fuckos in Colorado that thought that open primary voting was a great idea. Rush fucking Limbaugh came up with this shit on the radio in 2008, he called it Operation Chaos. He urged his listeners to switch parties and vote for Hillary against Obama in the primaries. In Colorado, thanks to the voters, it doesn’t matter. Republican, Democratic, independent, you can participate in primary/caucus elections.

allegro  Apr 20, 2018 • 10:01:25pm

I really had the funnest time tonight. Turned out to be a most excellent blend of people - well all 6 of us with me being the only common contact - 2 decades old friends, 3 neighbors. Weed being the common interest. Two of the neighbors I don’t know that well but had enough contact with to feel comfortable inviting. I was kinda jaw-dropped when one looked like he was headed for some real racist shit in talking to my old friend, a South African. Her husband plowed right into that at the start, telling him in an admirably diplomatic way that he was full of shit and stop now. I was all :D at that. Guy totally backed off and was a sweetheart retired architect after that… but now I know who he is.

After that it was all joy. We talked, we sang, we laughed.

To bring it to the topic at hand, what we had in common was weed. It’s a winning issue.

ORANGE FARM, South Africa (AP) — Dressed in a red robe and a gold-trimmed bishop’s miter, the clergyman pours whiskey into his cupped hand and anoints the forehead of the man sitting before him.

“You are hereby invested as a minister … This is a double tot,” he says of the remaining whiskey in the chalice. He hands it to the new minister, who downs it.

“Hallelujah!” shout the congregation members who erupt in singing and dancing, swigging from bottles of beer.

Welcome to Gabola Church, which celebrates the drinking of alcohol. The South African church was started eight months ago and has found an enthusiastic following.

“We are a church for those who have been rejected by other churches because they drink alcohol,” Gabola’s founder and self-declared pope, Tsietsi Makiti, told The Associated Press. “Gabola Church is established to redeem the people who are rejected, who are regarded as sinners. We drink for deliverance. We are drinking for the Holy Ghost to come into us.”

Others in South Africa are outraged by Gabola, saying it is not a church at all.

“Gabola has nothing to do with the word of God. Those are not church services,” said Archbishop Modiri Patrick Shole, director of the South African Union Council of Independent Churches. “They are using the Bible to promote taverns and drinking liquor. It is blasphemous. It is heresy and totally against the doctrines.” He said his organization intends to see that authorities close Gabola for breaking municipal regulations that say churches should not be located near bars.

As was noted the other day by another lizard, the wingnut belief is that Mueller and his “witch hunt” are manufacturing evidence to pressure Trump’s associates into lying under threat of long prison sentences.

It does look like he’s expecting Mr Cohen to talk, so he’s getting his excuses in early, doesn’t it?

He’s trying to thread the needle by arguing that Cohen is a great guy and friend, so if he flips then anything he says will totally be lies forced upon them by Mueller. Any defense attorney worth his salt would be drinking heavily right now if this were their client.

I really want to see this go to trial now just to see Cobb present their theory in open court that Mueller’s entire case is based upon fabrications, that all his witnesses are liars who were coerced into offering false confessions, and there is no need to offer a defense because it’s obvious the whole case against his client is fraudulent and Mueller should immediately be indicted.

And, he is not crowing about North Korea supposedly halting their nuke testing for which you would expect him to take credit for and be boasting for days???

Dang, if Cohen is getting more of Donny’s attention then North K’s Kim Jong Un, things with all the investigations, suits and indictments are getting to him.

Nunes has utterly destroyed any pretense of bipartisanship, has utterly discarded the rule of law, has utterly betrayed his oath, and in doing so has turned congressional oversight into a weapon to be actively, brutally used by the majority.

Amusing as this would be, it is worth noting that this is pretty much exactly what might happen. And that it has a chance of success, because 40% of the country believes exactly that, and if it were presented, every single American would see or read pundits, politicians, and people they know talking about it as if it were a totally valid point of view.

I don’t know if any of you are on nextdoor.com for your neighborhood, but people in mine are having a debate in it over the walkouts that occurred yesterday. Rockwall High School actually did one, which really shocked me. Well, lots of oldies are angry, and by oldie I mean any old enough to be on the website. There were two I had to respond to.

The first was some guy saying that back in the 60s, college kids protested. We know that’s false because it was suspensions in Des Moines that led to the Supreme Court decision that kids could wear attire for a political statement. But I told him that of course college students did, they were being sent to fight. Now, it’s school kids that are being shot at, and they have the right to protest if no one else is going to seriously solve it.

The second was a guy posting this video,

Young Gun Control ‘Mastermind’ David Hogg Interview

, and stating that David’s a false leader because how would you let any kid that talk’s that way be a leader (and his kid would get a size 12 boot up the butt for talking like that). I had to remind him that:
1. David has had friends massacred
2. He’s being recorded.
These are the only two differences between what he’s saying and the way kids talked when I was in school. We cussed and cussed about the adults around us, and didn’t think they could do anything. The difference now is that, with respect to guns, the adults can’t seem to do anything.

The interns, which Harley hopes to select by mid-May, will be given bikes and taught to ride. Then, throughout the summer, they will attend motorcycle events across the country, and maybe overseas, documenting everything through social media.

Eight students, expected to be college juniors and seniors and at least 18 years old, will be chosen for the 12-week, paid summer internships.

The program is open to any student looking to pursue a career in social media, communications, public relations or marketing.

snip

In addition to a salary, and riding experiences, the interns will spend some time at Harley’s headquarters learning about marketing and other functions at the world’s largest manufacturer of heavyweight motorcycles.

And, of course, they get to keep the bike they rode through the summer.

Probably because unlike Senators, Republican Representatives have to face the voters on a regular basis - and their campaigns are more localized, and thus more dependent on backing from GOP Big Money (and also more likely to have obsessive wingnut blocs in their districts). It makes it easier for a House member to go along with the nuttery like it or not. Senators have always been more “independent”. Mostly.

The Bushes relationship with Obama is an interesting one. Obama rightfully so was critical of President Bush as both a Senator and a candidate but there seems to be no personal animosity between the two families. I have to say, the more I learn about George and Barbara’s granddaughters, Jenna and Barbara, the more I like them especially comparing them with Trump’s adult kids but also Romney’s, Palin’s, and even McCain’s daughter Meaghan (won’t comment on McCain’s sons since I know nothing about them) but Jenna and Barbara seem like kind, compassionate young women who despite growing up first as the granddaughters as POTUS and then daughters as POTUS have a good head on their shoulders.

He really could have used the moment to talk about perspective. The Bushes were together longer than he’s been alive. Never would have voted for H.W. but there’s something deeply beautiful about that. My own grandparents- Dad’s parents met in middle and high school. They weren’t together as long as the Bushes since my grandfather was only 66 when he died but there definitely was the same love there.

So Donny is using being snubbed by the Bushes as another excuse to retreat to Mar-a-Lago, as if he needs excuses by this point. Look forward to reports from staff that he spent the time watching the coverage and raging at the lack of press about his absence from the proceedings.

I can’t quote exactly but he said something to the effect of “Can you believe they’ve been married for 73 years? I am never going to make that record.”

Nana was widowed for 26 years. During that time my brothers and I were born and many of her great grandchildren. I never got to see her at her happiest. The love my grandparents had for each other I think really was one of the most romantic things I’ve seen. My other grandmother has been widowed for nine. Like yours she recently became a great grandmother.

Sadly, Melania can look forward to coming home to a very angry and petulant child…oh, and Barron as well. Donny is gonna see those images of her with a smile on her face while sitting next to the Obamas and assume that they were joking at his expense. She never shows that smile when she’s around him, never looks that happy when they’re in public, so she must have been glad to be away from him. And it’s going to eat into his paper-thin ego.

lawhawk  Apr 21, 2018 • 10:40:46am

Greets and saluts from the Resistance in the NYC metro area. It’s finally feeling like spring today, after the first half of the month felt like January redux.

Then again it’s been Groundhog Day around here since 1/20/2017, when Trump took office amid scandal and it’s been one scandal after another.

Trump can’t be bothered by spelling, and the spelling is the least of his problems. Wharton wants their degree back because Trump doesn’t know basic economics. He doesn’t care about facts, and he ignores logic while rejecting anything that shows his addled worldview or beliefs is wrong.

The problem starts with fact that his supporters share his addled worldview and Fox is a huge part of that misinformation/agitprop campaign.

It’s all they do - hour after hour of misinformation spewed by people like Newt, “Diamond and Silk”, Gorka, Lewandowski, Conway, and assorted other smear merchants and liars.

Heck, Newt was among those who called Mueller a great pick for Special Counsel, right up to the moment he started indicting people all around Trump. That’s when he claimed Mueller was out of control.

The fact is Mueller could indict - and get guilty pleas as quickly and from as many people as he has to date - is that Trumpworld is compromised, complicit, and criminal.

All the years of investigating Clinton and her family yielded nothing but nonstop innuendo and conspiracy theory. Congressional GOPers even got their wish and got her testifying under oath on Capitol Hill for 11 hours. After that, they had to admit they had nothing, but still think another investigation will find criminal conduct. That’s where the GOP is now - hoping that the DOJ launches another investigation into Clinton, Sessions, Comey, Obama, etc., hoping someone among them engaged in criminal wrongdoing.

Well, I can make it simple for them: Sessions perjured himself in his confirmation hearing. The GOP didn’t care and confirmed him anyways. But it doesn’t make the perjury any less of a crime.

They’ll stop at nothing to deflect attention from Trumpworld criminality.

Even Trump can’t help but admit that he’s got criminal conduct going on because he thinks Cohen’s going to flip (or wont flip). There’d be no reason for someone who is innocent to flip - that assumes criminal conduct. Everyone seems to think Cohen’s going to get indicted, even Cohen’s lawyers. The only question is which investigation and how many charges.

Even the GOP seems to know this - but doesn’t care and continues enabling the regime, even those most maverick-y of mavericks like Flake and McCain.

But if you want to know the state of trumpworld, it’s this: Barbara Bush funeral ceremony is being held and other living presidents and first ladies are in attendance. Trump is not.

It’s not because he’s a disruption (every other president is in the same room).

It’s because not a single one of the former presidents, especially the Bush family, can stand the vulgarian Trump. Barbara made that explicitly known.
