So the President can tell his resort’s guests about a pending military attack but not Congressional leaders. Uh ok.

I was just posting about that:

nbcnews.com

WASHINGTON — The House adopted a war powers resolution Thursday with the aim of limiting President Donald Trump’s military actions against Iran.

The adoption of the measure 224-194 on a largely party-line vote came amid heightened tensions between the two countries after the United States killed top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and Iran retaliated with a ballistic missile attack against Iraqi airbases housing U.S. forces.

Republicans Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Matt Gaetz and Francis Rooney, both of Florida, voted for the measure, while eight Democrats voted against it: Joe Cunningham of South Carolina, Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, Kendra Horn of Oklahoma, Elaine Luria of Virginia, Ben McAdams of Utah, Anthony Brindisi, Stephanie Murphy and Max Rose, all of New York

These Republicans have gone off the deep end. The entire Republican Party has metastasized into a cancer destroying America. They have got to be so thoroughly slaughtered at the ballot box that they wither, die and get a permanent dirt nap in the political graveyard next to the Whig Raccoon, Progressive Bull Moose, Prohibition Camel, and Federalist Eagle.

re: #34 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

There’s a very real chance that won’t actually exclude any (western) airlines as I really doubt that the 737-max will ever be used on a passenger route ever again.

They’re probably too expensive to be scrapped, but no passenger airline is going to want to put them back into service, as knowingly using a faulty plane would kill their business.

IMO much higher chance that no new ones are made, and all the existing ones are either converted to cargo planes, or sold to African or other third world countries.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. Trump continues to lie his ass off about the justifications for the raid on Suleimani. Pompeo and the rest of Trumpworld continue to abuse the definition of imminent and can’t even identify actions in weeks and months to come that they can attribute to Iran.

Here’s the thing. Until Trump abrogated the Iran deal, Iran had been not only complying with the JCPOA, but no attacks on US forces could be attributed to Iran between the signing of the JCPOA and when Trump broke the deal and then slapped sanctions on Iran.

It was only after the sanctions and Trump breaking the deal that Iran began ramping up actions against Americans in the Middle East.

There’s absolutely no reason for Iran to re-enter a JCPOA type deal now when they see the asshat running the US and how Trump fawns over Jong Un for photo ops all while Jong Un has the time and space to build up its nuclear arsenal and missile tech. Now Iran sees that if they follow North Korea’s approach, they can get the space and time to act - and there’s nothing Trump can do once they go nuclear.

re: #89 The Pie Overlord!

It should be snow at this time of year but it’s rain because the temperature is in the 50’s (10-12 C)

Warmer temps mean more moisture is available in the air - more energy in the system.

For those downwind of the Great Lakes, it means greater shot at lake effect snows when temps are below freezing - since the lakes are at a near record minimum on ice levels.

For those who’d normally see snow storms, we’re seeing rain, which means that snowpack that helps refill aquifers and snowmelt that helps recharge rivers is going to come in quick hits that can lead to flooding and potential drought situations later in the year.

But sure, it’s just weather, not climate. When we see this year after year, it’s no longer just weather - it’s the changed climate and we’re the ones accelerating the changes.

What the hell is wrong with people?

The wounds were grimly familiar to conservationists: Another sea lion had been shot.
Rescuers found the yearling struggling at a popular surfing spot on California’s Newport Beach. One wound — probably from a pellet gun, they found — had left her with a painful abscess. A second projectile was lodged between her ribs.
A volunteer at the Laguna Beach nonprofit Pacific Marine Mammal Center named her Mandalorian, inspired by a binge-watch of the hit Star Wars TV show. For a week in December, the young sea lion got treatment among fellow rescues Yoda, Leia and Skywalker.
But her health kept deteriorating, the center said this week, and eventually the staff made a “difficult decision.” Mandalorian was euthanized.

Sent Tom Steyer some money this morning.

“What? Are you insane? The guy’s a billionaire, he doesn’t need your money!”

In fact, he does. There are so many billionaires any more that they split up into sub-classes just like anyone else. Tom is one of the lesser ones, close to the bottom of the billionaire poverty barrel in fact, at $1.6 billion net worth. Unlike Bloomberg, he cannot finance a presidential run from his own funds, though it has gotten him a good start in the primaries.

I recognize, of course, that a billionaire outsider is a hard sell because of Trump’s negative example. The similarities stop there, with that simple descriptor though. Tom has a consistent record of thoughtful and generous support for environmental action and progressive politics. He has some well formed and articulately expressed ideas. I think he could beat Trump, and he could handle the job.

I still prefer Warren and Klobuchar as candidates, but I will continue to support all viable candidates, since I don’t want to see another Kamala Harris. It still infuriates me that she had to quit, limiting our options more than they really should be.

A little Bowie trivia about ‘Valentine’s Day’…

The song, of course, is about a school shooting. When the time came to make a video, the director wanted to go with a literal interpretation of the lyrics, including footage of a simulated shooting. Bowie nixed the idea, feeling it was too heavy handed. Instead, they shot the video at the Red Hook Grain Terminal in Brooklyn, and Bowie specifically chose the guitar he played in the video (a Hohner GT2) for its resemblance to a rifle, and began and ended the video with the extended arm pose quite like that of hoisting a rifle into the air.

And that’s why he was so good at what he did, in every aspect. The obvious, the literal, was never the path he took.

If true (and it’s Trump, remember), it certainly seems that Trump ordered the strike because Republican Senators told him that this would help him; i.e. he didn’t wag the dog on his own, others with a different agenda pressured him by claiming it would help with the impeachment. They probably looked at impeachment as a godsend because it would allow them to get Trump to do what they long wanted.

I guess since the latest investigation found nothing wrong with Hillary the Q-anon folks will admit defeat and admit to their delusions and we won’t hear from them again, right?

Unlikely: they’ll probably just assume that “Killary” “got to” the investigators, and threatened them into NOT finding the “obvious evidence”. Said threats, one assumes, being sent pictures of Hillary and Chelsea standing over Seth Rich’s body with bloody machetes… and YOUR NEXT as a caption….

Dude. You’re not far wrong. Here’s the ramblings of the demented minds at Rapture Ready:

“All members of the House, Senate and Executive Branches are in office as our “representatives.” However, personal agendas are totally obvious, and it just keeps on going on. Would you agree with me that evil forces are involved? I do not recall any other time where a president who has improved our economy, reduced unemployment, and overall has made America “respectable” in the eyes of the world again has been persecuted as this one has.

Sad part about all of this, it will not get any better. Satan is pulling out all the stops. Alternate lifestyles, advocating the killing of newborn babies, open satanic worship, and just about every other form of evil is rising at unprecedented rates. Jesus spoke of this. Paul, Peter, John and others also warned us that these times would be here just before the end of this age. To present ourselves as being followers of Jesus is to leave us open to verbal, and sometimes physical abuse. Some very liberal areas are enacting laws that would have been seriously challenged previously. One is taking parents’ rights away as to the curriculum that their kids are being exposed to, and it’s being started in the lower grades.”

Spicy….

The de Blasio administration has referred findings from a review of the Trump Organization’s property tax filings to the Manhattan district attorney’s office, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday morning.

In October, WNYC reported that President Donald Trump’s business portfolio would cite lower income from its properties when reporting to the Department of Finance, which is in charge of levying property taxes, but would report higher values when speaking with investors.

The desire to shrink property taxes has spawned a cottage industry in New York. Each year, landlords big and small hire tax certiorari firms to contest assessments from the finance department in an attempt to revise them downward. However, WNYC cited experts in its report that said the discrepancies in the Trump Organization’s reported income may rise to the level of fraud, Marritz said.

The District Attorney’s office declined to comment.

re: #212 Jay C

Businesses regularly try to reduce their property tax burden. If they’re reporting the same or similar amounts both for property tax and income tax purposes as well as to their investors, then there’s no problem.

But if you start reporting completely and wildly different figures to those different constituencies, then you have a problem. Wire/mail fraud, tax fraud, etc. Because you’re claiming that the property has one valuation for property tax purposes, and an entirely different value for income purposes. It’s the degree of difference.

Trump doesn’t deal in degrees though. He’s spent his entire life flouting rules and avoiding consequences. But now it seems he’s determined to show how much of a crook he is, thinking that he can avoid the consequences even now.

Boeing’s all-star board bears blame for flawed corporate culture: Experts

The board is packed with a number of high-profile members, including Amgen CEO Robert Bradway, the Seventh Vice Chair of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Edmund P. Giambastiani Jr., Duke Energy chair Lynn Good, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and former Allstate CEO Edward Liddy.

But while the board is loaded with powerhouse names, it may lack one critical factor - relevant experience.

“The board didn’t have the level of broad range of expertise that would’ve made them more sensitive to these issues earlier on,” Charles Elson, the Edgar S. Woolard, Jr., Chair in Corporate Governance at the University of Delaware, told FOX Business.

In a statement, it described the general’s demise as an act of divine intervention that benefitted jihadists.

Whoda thunk that Donald Trump would become an agent of Allah’s Divine Will?

WASHINGTON — Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s massive campaign apparatus and an army of some 500 staffers will march on through the general election in November even if he loses the Democratic nomination, campaign officials tell NBC News, shifting their efforts toward working to elect whomever the party selects to face President Donald Trump.

Bloomberg’s vast tech operation will also be redirected to help the eventual nominee, as Democrats struggle to compete with the vaunted digital operation built by Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. Hawkfish, a digital company started by Bloomberg that’s carrying out his $100 million online ad campaign, will be retained through Election Day to help defeat Trump, the officials said.

Grew up a huge Ripken Jr fan in the 90’s and never looked back. Camden Yards is where I fell in love with professional baseball and even though the tough times out number the good, I can’t imagine rooting for anyone else.

I grew up in LA as a Dodgers fan; my dad grew up in Brooklyn as a Dodgers fan. Whenever they had a bad year, we could console ourselves with the team’s proud history.

They certainly do have that. I have family that were Dodgers fans since my Grandmother had cousins in Brooklyn. With the O’s, we certainly do have the history too. Just finished an excellent biography on Brooks Robinson.

re: #265 BeachDem

And this, from an unlikely source:

Boeing’s all-star board bears blame for flawed corporate culture: Experts


But while the board is loaded with powerhouse names, it may lack one critical factor - relevant experience.

“The board didn’t have the level of broad range of expertise that would’ve made them more sensitive to these issues earlier on,” Charles Elson, the Edgar S. Woolard, Jr., Chair in Corporate Governance at the University of Delaware, told FOX Business.

foxbusiness.com

Usually an unlikely source for such a story; but at this particular moment, Fox has a strong motive for suddenly caring that board members should have relevant experience.

Unfortunately, even as they can’t find shit to actually pin on her, the collateral damage to the Dems and the country remain, which is exactly why the GOP pursues it.

And instead of getting mad at the Republicans, we have a gigantic swath of liberals and lefties who want to burn Hillary in effigy instead for being the bane of all the party.

OK, this is the first decent news I heard today.

Now, if only Bloomberg would abandon the ego-driven Presidential campaign and focus on ratfucking the GOP senators in vulnerable states, I might move to canonize the little shrimp.
