    NY Attorney General And Trump Foundation – Much Ado About Not Much

    It is widely reported that the Attorney General of New York is suing The Donald J. Trump Foundation. Danny Hakim of the New York Times reports that the lawsuit is “scathingly worded”. Well, when something like this happens, I feel compelled to start my own investigation. If you want to follow along my sources are the AG complaint and Form 990-PF for the Donald J Trump Foundation for the calendar years 2014, 2015 and 2016. Spoiler Alert – My conclusion is that the Donald J Trump Foundation is kind of rinky-dink, slightly sketchy and pretty sloppy. I also think that if Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood is focused on rooting out abuse in the charitable sector, she should really go fight crime somewhere.

    You really could turn this around and praise the Foundation for running on such low overhead, which is what was done in the response the Foundation issued. The Clinton Foundation has ten people on its payroll that make more than $200,000 per year. On the other hand, it is much more substantial organization with over $60 million in revenue that actually operates programs. The Donald J Trump Foundation just writes checks to other charities. In the spirit of whataboutism, it is worth noting that in 2015 Republicans made a big deal out of a foot fault by the Clinton Health Access Initiative Inc. It boiled down to a clerical error on Form 990. The AG has a lot more than that on the Donald J Trump Foundation. I just don’t think it amounts to more than more of Trump being Trump.

    People older than me can probably remember how medicine worked as consumers in the 1960s and 1970s pre-Whitlam/Fraser. I’d be very interested to know.

    My parents were in the lower, working class strata. They had private insurance with the GUOOF, and the premiums were very low. It covered several hospitalisations that I recall, all in private rooms. If there were no singles, then it was shared or at worst, the public ward.

    Only the very poor were uninsured. They went straight to the public ward and were treated by the resident physician.

    Many doctors and specialists did pro-bono work in the hospitals. Doctors charged a small fee for “surgery” visits, more for appointments and home visits. Even the best specialists charged small fees for their work, most of which was covered by the fund.

    You had ten children so you could easily afford to lose some.
    Cancer was a death sentence, and the doctors would bullshit you nothing serious was wrong so you could enjoy your last few weeks on Earth.
    Immigrants didn’t use public hospitals as a GP service.
    Nurses were young, dressed in starched uniforms and smoking hot.
    Blokes did not have to attend child birth and stand about lamely taking in horrific scenes that if they are lucky their subconcious erases immediately after.
    In short: everything was better.

    Iirc there was some public subsidy to the insurance schemes from the 1950s, but the poorest remained uninsured. This was the rationale for Medibank and then Medicare.

    In my NSW country town people often got consultations on tick. Doctors knew who was doing it tough and didn’t pursue them for payment beyond the usual bill and a reminder or two.

    I just wanted to say ‘hello’ to her and I thought it would look really crazy if we were living in [a] world [where] I couldn’t shake hands with the Attorney General, you know, when she was right there,” Clinton is quoted as saying, in a report released Thursday by the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice.

    “I did not have corruption with that woman.”

  10. Bruce of Newcastle

    Am I completely wrong or just a bastard?

    Dot – My understanding is that the supply of MDs has gone into surplus. That means those GPs who are willing to bulk bill have an advantage as the others are undercut on price. They don’t get business. My GP bulk bills everyone and doesn’t charge a top up, not even for people with money.

    I’ve also noted a rise in mobile GP franchises who bulk bill.

    The key is obliterating the AMA engineered shortage of GPs. Free markets are a fine thing, except for wannabe Maserati drivers.

    My parents were in the lower, working class strata.

    Mine, too. We lived in Queensland until I was 11 and health care was free, thanks to the Golden Casket. Most families, including mine, had private health insurance as well and so a hospital stay-my appendectomy, for example- could be a little money-spinner.

    Dad bought a lawnmower with the money from my op. My brothers made a small fortune from it doing the neighbourhood rounds. I never thought to charge them for the hire of it, and they never offered a penny. Opportunistic beggars!

    Comey and Mueller Should Be Incarcerated – Not Emulated

    Despite the Deep State’s best efforts, we had managed to learn some of what was put together in said report. But there was revealed therein a whole lot more ridiculous unprofessionalism and Democrat-partisanship.

    In short, the Comey FBI was a hack arm of the Democrat National Committee. It had nothing to do with actual, impartial law enforcement – you know, its actual gig.

    One new wrinkle revealed yesterday – was a text previously withheld from the Congressional oversight folks. We had seen Page’s preceding text – just not Strozk’s response:

    Page: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

    Strozk: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

    Who’s “we?” The entirety of FBI leadership – up to and including Comey.

    And Attorney General Loretta Lynch – and almost certainly her henchmen and women.

    And lest we forget – President Obama his own self

    Many, many members of Comey’s staff – were running amok in a heinously partisan fashion….

    Yep, everyone is laughing at Comey for not knowing Weiner was the husband of Hillary’s chief of staff whilst Secretary of State, AND vice-chair of Hillary’s 2016 presidential campain, Huma Abedin…

    Premier Daniel Andrews says men have to take responsibility for violent crime despite police calls for caution after dark.

    the Killer and only the Killer was responsible for raping and killing the young woman. But the cop was right about assessing risks and I would say the girl knew that given her text message about nearly being home “safe”. And SpongeBob Square Face Daniel Andrews is totally wrong to blame all men especially when this killer seems to be some sort of f****** nutter who should have been locked up not roaming around stalking women.

    I don’t think many here would disagree with that.
    A Century ago women were far less safe – technology and Constabulary, no doubt, people don’t change, despite Leftoid hyperbole.

    You do realise the judge who so sorrowfully revoked Manafort’s bail is an Obama appointee don’t you?

    So now whenever a judge makes a ruling we will assess it based on who appointed them? Is it a new normal?

    It was pretty clear Manaford was a crook but I did not realize he is also an idiot. He knew he was under a microscope and still contacted potential witnesses. I will be surprised if he does not plead guilty. It will be pretty hard to argue that Gates is lying.

    Odd that this shit is uncritically digested by the commentariat.

    The IG Report says the meeting was unwelcome and that Clinton only got through Lynch’s FBI security detail and onto her plane because ‘former President’. Loretta Lynch herself reports a rambling, awkward conversation about golf, family, nightclubs, Clinon’s travels, Brexit and cheesy compliments on her work performance:

    …Lynch said that when she thought about it later that evening and discussed it with her staff about in the context of the case, she concluded “that it was just too long a conversation to have had. It…went beyond hi, how are you, shake hands, move on sort of thing. It went beyond the discussions I’ve had with other people in public life, even in political life, it went beyond that [in terms of length].”

    Her staff apparently had to usher Clinton off Lynch’s plane.
    Perhaps she narrowly avoided a #metoo incident…

    “So just make sure you have situational awareness, that you’re aware of your surroundings,” Clayton said. “If you’ve got a mobile phone carry it and if you’ve got any concerns, call police. The implication that women are in some way responsible for the harm inflicted on them is one his government has fought for almost four years to counteract.

    I live in tropical Australia. If you go near the water, you have to “have situational awareness”, always, day or night, because otherwise you will probably be eaten. Or stung. Or bitten by a poisonous snake. If I come to harm because I have not done this, I would have been an idiot.

    I will be surprised if he does not plead guilty.

    He won’t do that Boris. Manafort was supporting the same side in Ukraine that Obama was supporting: Yanukovych. I suspect he’s waiting until he is forced by the court to divulge information which he is unable to volunteer due to confidentiality.

    Also Manafort wants full discovery. That will be fun. Mueller is delaying and slowing things down as much as possible. Having Manafort in jail is part of the persecution, hence this ruling.

    I suspect that Mueller will spin this out as long as possible, then drop all charges to avoid discovery and a trial where witnesses will be called under oath.

    Heard a story of an incident that occurred at a Sydney Catholic Primary school that has been convieiently swept under the carpet . It seem the children were being indoctrinated in the “stolen generation lie “ ,a class of seven year olds were all marched from the classroom and told “you are being removed from your parents as you are neglected and we are taking you to a home to live. You will not see your parents again “. The children were distressed naturally ,no one told them it was a pretend thing . One teacher remonstrated and was told .this is a good teaching tool , those children will always remember the “stolen generations”.
    The story is on the net somewhere I don’t know where , but a friend read it out to me from the phone . It seems none of the guilty were even semi indigenius but members of the teaching staff . Shocking abuse of children ,as bad as the socialists Hitler and Stalin . A suggestion to Catholic Education punish the culprits and give classes on child sexual abuse by catholic clergy so the kids are aware of the matter ,now that would be educating . The u.n.communists have even infiltrated the RC s , well the pope is one paedophiles and communists ,what a bloody mix

    IG Report: FBI Lawyer #1 Tashina Gauhar and The Huma/Weiner Laptop Issues

    ….
    The ‘insider narration’ makes it difficult to see what happened with the Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner laptop; and how the Clinton emails were discovered.However, because the issue is so important the IG report spends three chapters on this time-frame between September 28th and October 29th, 2016; and ultimately the next day, Oct. 30th, when a search warrant was executed for the laptop content.

    IG Horowitz takes this aspect of the investigation into granularity and nuance (Chapters 8, 9 and 10).

    At the heart of the activity during this critical period is FBI lawyer #1 Tashina “Tash” Gauhar who was on a video conference call with the FBI New York Field Office (NYFO) as the discoveries of hundreds of thousands of Clinton emails were relayed internally to the Mid-Year-Event (MYE) team in DC on September 29th, 2016.

    Almost a full month went by until October 27th, 2016, when the MYE team all gathered with James Comey to talk about the laptop issues and the emails. Within the IG review of this period, there is a bunch of ass-covering documentation that takes place in hindsight to the events. The IG is careful to point out each time his investigation is presented with documentary evidence that was clearly written long-after the events being questioned.

    The central IG question is: why didn’t the FBI take immediate action to review 725,000 Clinton-centric emails on the Huma/Weiner laptop? Why did they wait a month before seeking a search warrant? Why were they doing nothing?…

    OK.
    This is the story we are expected to believe.
    1. They got Weiner’s laptop (but have no idea who he is).
    2. The laptop was handed over to the DC FBI by NY FBI office because they discovered State Dept emails and material on it but Weiner was not an employee of State. So it wasn’t like it was exchanged between two low level operatives and sat on someone’s desk until they got around to it, like it was some routine bank fraud.
    3. So, we have a highly blackmailable pervert with unauthorised State documents on his computer and, with all the resources of the FBI, no-one can track the source of the documents.
    4. The IG report does not say if any of the documents were encrypted. Presumably they weren’t because, if they were, that might help excuse part of the delay.
    5. The documents were mostly emails, with names of senders and receivers (either as full addresses or abbreviations) and probably with system generated signature blocks giving the name and title of the sender.
    6. Weiner may not have been well known here but he was a six-term Democrat NY congressman and had been in very public trouble in 2011 and 2013 over sexting scandals.
    And we are expected to believe it took a month for the FBI to link him to Humador and Illary.
    Yeah.
    But nah.

    Emails at odds with Bailey union denials

    Newly released correspondence appears to show a union boss reminding Queensland Labor minister Mark Bailey that he “pulled strings’’ to get him into cabinet.

    Emails, obtained under state Right to Information laws, also indicate Mr Bailey personally directed his “comrades” at the Electrical Trades Union to contact him on his now-controversial private email account just hours after being sworn into the ministry in 2015.

    The email appears to contradict last year’s claims in parliament by Mr Bailey, a longtime ETU member given the energy ministry that employs thousands of union members, that he had had no control over who contacted him on his private email.

    Mr Bailey, who this year was dumped from the energy portfolio, has faced controversy over his back-channel correspondence with ETU bosses through his [email protected] account.

    Only some of an estimated 1200 work-related emails from the account have been released under RTI, but seem to show Mr Bailey receiving demands from ETU bosses on a range of issues.

    Last year, Mr Bailey told parliament it was a “private email ­account, I treated it as a private email account’’ after controversy erupted when he deleted the ­account, initially blocking RTI ­access to its contents.

    Given that I cannot control who emails me and that I have had that account for 20 years, I had no control over who would use it so I removed that possibility to ensure I carry out my duties appropriately,” he said at the time.

    The newly released emails show that just hours after being sworn in, Mr Bailey sent an email from his Yahoo account to ETU national official Lance McCallum, with the subject “Were You Going to Send Me Some Info Comrade?”

    “Send it to this email address please … thanks! M.”

    The following day, Mr McCallum emailed with suggestions on energy policy reforms, and offering a briefing on key ­issues and advice on choosing ministerial staff.

    The ETU endorsed Mr Bailey for preselection, campaigned for Labor to win government, and was rewarded when he was given the energy portfolio that runs the state-owned power companies and employs 7000 of its members.

    Secret correspondence between the ETU and the minister continued for more than a year with the union even sending an “incoming brief’’ of demands that were mostly delivered by Mr Bailey in the first term of government.

    At one stage, the union sent Mr Bailey a CV of human resources executive Mark Algie, championing his eventual appointment to the Energy Queensland board even after applications had closed. The appointment is the subject of a probe by Queensland’s Crime and Corruption Commision.

    After Labor regained government in 2015, the ETU was reported to have been instrumental in the selection of cabinet ministers, including Mr Bailey.

    In the newly released material, ETU state secretary Peter Simpson appears to boast of his influence in securing the portfolio for Mr Bailey in an email with the subject “An Angry Email from a F. king Angry Man”.

    “I’ve spent the past 5 months or so talking up this government and our star recruit, you, telling all and sundry that asked how you were going as our new minister, that all was ticketyboo,” Mr Simpson wrote in the June 2015 email.

    “My pride, given the amount of effort and strings I had to pull to get you there have all kept me in defence mode; well not tonight.”

    Angry at Mr Bailey and others in government for paying only “lip service” to the union, Mr Simpson threatened to ramp up industrial efforts.

    Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington said the new emails confirm Mr Bailey was “owned lock, stock and barrel’’ by the union and that Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk should sack him.

    “Mark Bailey’s cosy relationship with the ETU makes his position as a cabinet minister untenable,’’ she said.

    Mr Bailey’s office did not return an approach for comment by The Weekend Australian.

    The emails were just hours after it emerged that Mr Bailey had used a second private email address as a minister.

    Mr Bailey rose in the House just before lunch to address questions earlier by the LNP about his [email protected] account after an RTI application made by the Opposition returned several documents.

    Deputy Opposition Leader Tim Mander tabled emails from Mr Bailey’s [email protected] account in state parliament, in which he corresponded with ministerial and union figures.

    Mr Bailey said there was nothing inappropriate about his use of the email account shortly after he was elected to office in 2015, as it was a holdover from his time as an anti-uranium campaigner.

    Later, Mr Bailey rose again to reveal he had a third private mail account, an Outlook account, which had not previously been made public.

    “The existence of this account was considered in the previous CCC investigation,” Mr Bailey told parliament.

    Google’s black and Hispanic employees make up 2.5% and 3.6% of US employees, according to the report.

    That’s minimal movement compared to last year’s report, which found black employees make up 2.4% and Hispanics make up 3.5%. Representation in the tech roles is slightly up for black employees, making up 1.5% of the 2017 workforce compared to 1.4% the year prior.

    For the first time, the report looked at the intersection of race and gender for employees; black women and Hispanic women make up the smallest percentages of the workforce.

    A leaked draft of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) amnesty deal could lead to the “biggest” amnesty for illegal aliens in United States history, experts tell Breitbart News.
    Ryan’s immigration deal would go beyond giving amnesty to only the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens who are enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    According to a leaked draft of the amnesty deal, obtained by Breitbart News, Ryan’s plan would allow the entire “DACA population” to be eligible for amnesty so long as they meet low educational, work and criminal requirements, prompting the amnesty to explode in size.

    On Thursday, the University of Chicago announced that it would no longer require the ACT/SAT for admission, becoming the most-selective institution ever to adopt a test-optional policy. With that, the South Side campus caused an admissions-obsessed planet to wobble. Several deans and college counselors predict that the move will soon prompt other high-profile colleges to abandon their testing requirements. At the very least, the national conversation about testing has changed, probably for good.

    As The Washington Post first reported, Chicago has unveiled a broad initiative to increase access for low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students. Dropping its testing requirement for all domestic applicants is just one part of the plan (those who don’t submit scores will still be eligible for the university’s merit scholarships, officials say).

    Residents in southwest Kansas are starting to speak with a distinct, new accent as the Latino population continues to grow — and the accent is most prominent among young people.

    A research team at Kansas State University has found that as demographics change in the region, the way people speak English also changes.

    The team is calling this new way of speaking a “Liberal accent” or “Liberal sound.” Liberal is a Seward County, Kansas, town of about 25,000 people. About 59 percent of the town’s population was Hispanic or Latino in 2010, according to the U.S. Census. Just a couple of decades ago, Liberal’s population was about 20 percent Latino, the K-State news release says.

    The sound change, which lead researcher Mary Kohn calls a “Latino-English” sound, is more prominent in youths — including those who do not speak Spanish.

    More fun and games from the (completely non-biased) FBI, courtesy of the IG Report:

    FBI Agent Joked Clinton Associate Who Lied Would Never Be Charged

    An FBI agent joked about how a witness who lied in the Hillary Clinton email investigation would never be charged, according to a Justice Department inspector general report released Thursday.

    The witness had obviously lied to the FBI about handling sensitive information, the agent told one of his colleagues, but it didn’t matter, because regardless of what the Clinton associate said, the FBI wasn’t going to do “sh-t” about it. Here’s the exchange:’

    FBI Employee: “boom…how did the [witness] go”

    Agent 1: “Awesome. Lied his -ss off. Went from never inside the scif [sensitive compartmented information facility] at res, to looked in when it was being constructed, to removed the trash twice, to troubleshot the secure fax with HRC a couple times, to everytime there was a secure fax i did it with HRC. Ridic,”

    FBI Employee: “would be funny if he was the only guy charged n this deal”

    Agent 1: “I know. For 1001. Even if he said the truth and didnt have a clearance when handling the secure fax – aint noone gonna do sh-t

    The agent has since told investigators he doesn’t recall this February 2016 conversation about the witness, who assisted the Clintons at their Chappaqua residence. Here’s how he explained the exchange to investigators:

    Yeah, I, I don’t think I can say there’s a specific person that I worked with in this case that wouldn’t charge him for that. I think it’s a general complaint of, you know, of FBI agents that are kind of, kind of being emotional and, and complaining that no one is going to do something about, about something. … But there’s nothing specific that I, that I can tell you.

    The IG report deals with the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.

    Premier Daniel Andrews says men have to take responsibility for violent crime despite police calls for caution after dark.

    Andrews also called for some type of Education Program targeting young men.

    Let me do an old whatever, from the WSJ:

    Climate Change Has Run Its Course
    Its descent into social-justice identity politics is the last gasp of a cause that has lost its vitality

    Climate change is over. No, I’m not saying the climate will not change in the future, or that human influence on the climate is negligible. I mean simply that climate change is no longer a pre-eminent policy issue. All that remains is boilerplate rhetoric from the political class, frivolous nuisance lawsuits, and bureaucratic mandates on behalf of special-interest renewable-energy rent seekers.
    Judged by deeds rather than words, most national governments are backing away from forced-marched decarbonization. You can date the arc of climate change as a policy priority from 1988, when highly publicized congressional hearings first elevated the issue, to 2018. President Trump’s ostentatious withdrawal from the Paris Agreement merely ratified a trend long becoming evident.
    A good indicator of why climate change as an issue is over can be found early in the text of the Paris Agreement. The “nonbinding” pact declares that climate action must include concern for “gender equality, empowerment of women, and intergenerational equity” as well as “the importance for some of the concept of ‘climate justice.’ ” Another is Sarah Myhre’s address at the most recent meeting of the American Geophysical Union, in which she proclaimed that climate change cannot fully be addressed without also grappling with the misogyny and social injustice that have perpetuated the problem for decades.

    The descent of climate change into the abyss of social-justice identity politics represents the last gasp of a cause that has lost its vitality. Climate alarm is like a car alarm—a blaring noise people are tuning out.

    This outcome was predictable. Political scientist Anthony Downs described the downward trajectory of many political movements in an article for the Public Interest, “Up and Down With Ecology: The ‘Issue-Attention Cycle,’ ” published in 1972, long before the climate-change campaign began. Observing the movements that had arisen to address issues like crime, poverty and even the U.S.-Soviet space race, Mr. Downs discerned a five-stage cycle through which political issues pass regularly.
    The first stage involves groups of experts and activists calling attention to a public problem, which leads quickly to the second stage, wherein the alarmed media and political class discover the issue. The second stage typically includes a large amount of euphoric enthusiasm—you might call it the “dopamine” stage—as activists conceive the issue in terms of global peril and salvation. This tendency explains the fanaticism with which divinity-school dropouts Al Gore and Jerry Brown have warned of climate change.
    Then comes the third stage: the hinge. As Mr. Downs explains, there soon comes “a gradually spreading realization that the cost of ‘solving’ the problem is very high indeed.” That’s where we’ve been since the United Nations’ traveling climate circus committed itself to the fanatical mission of massive near-term reductions in fossil fuel consumption, codified in unrealistic proposals like the Kyoto Protocol. This third stage, Mr. Downs continues, “becomes almost imperceptibly transformed into the fourth stage: a gradual decline in the intensity of public interest in the problem.”

    While opinion surveys find that roughly half of Americans regard climate change as a problem, the issue has never achieved high salience among the public, despite the drumbeat of alarm from the climate campaign. Americans have consistently ranked climate change the 19th or 20th of 20 leading issues on the annual Pew Research Center poll, while Gallup’s yearly survey of environmental issues typically ranks climate change far behind air and water pollution.

    “In the final stage,” Mr. Downs concludes, “an issue that has been replaced at the center of public concern moves into a prolonged limbo—a twilight realm of lesser attention or spasmodic recurrences of interest.” Mr. Downs predicted correctly that environmental issues would suffer this decline, because solving such issues involves painful trade-offs that committed climate activists would rather not make.
    A case in point is climate campaigners’ push for clean energy, whereas they write off nuclear power because it doesn’t fit their green utopian vision. A new study of climate-related philanthropy by Matthew Nisbet found that of the $556.7 million green-leaning foundations spent from 2011-15, “not a single grant supported work on promoting or reducing the cost of nuclear energy.” The major emphasis of green giving was “devoted to mobilizing public opinion and to opposing the fossil fuel industry.”

    Scientists who are genuinely worried about the potential for catastrophic climate change ought to be the most outraged at how the left politicized the issue and how the international policy community narrowed the range of acceptable responses. Treating climate change as a planet-scale problem that could be solved only by an international regulatory scheme transformed the issue into a political creed for committed believers. Causes that live by politics, die by politics.

    Yesterday morning I told the doc with a view to working together to identify the culprit drug and he went off the planet. His attitude was that it was better to be a drug-hazed zombie than mess around with ANY of the meds as prescribed by the hospital.

    So I went it alone, and this morning took everything but halved the dose of what I felt to be the most likely culprit. So far, so good. My BP, which was consistently around over 70, is now back up in the 100 over 80 range. Score: Engineers – 1, Medicos – 0.

  220. Dreher on the NYT’s “Love City: 24 Hours of Romance, Lust and Heartache in New York”:

    At this point, you may ask yourself: what kind of parents want their teenagers involved in a polyamorous bisexual threesome? And, as these three are minors: what kind of parents give permission for The New York Times Magazine to profile their relationship? Welcome to 2018.

    By now, you readers should be onto this strategy. You should be savvy enough to recognize that what is observed sympathetically in a place like the most important newspaper in America — the one read by the people who make movies and television — will eventually be mainstreamed through the mass media. In 1995, a movie called Kids, about semi-feral New York teenagers who drifted through life smoking dope, skateboarding, and having sex, was so controversial it almost didn’t get distribution (who distributed it? Harvey Weinstein!). In 2018, The New York Times Magazine writes a romantic piece about a teenage threesome, which features a photograph of the lesbian couple in this ménage washing up after having spent the night together … and it’s no longer edgy, as it was in Kids, but now it’s bourgeois and mainstream. Hey, Hanna’s a rabbi’s daughter, and the rabbi tells her daughter that she too would be interested in bonking women, but she’s married to dad, so … but good luck, honey! You girls have fun up there!

    I’d bet you a thousand dollars that producers are on the phone this morning with Hanna and Beaux and Harry, trying to buy rights to their story. And that it will be on Netflix, or Amazon, within a couple of years.

    Very tempting Lizzie, but it’s a long, long way home afterwards and I’d certainly not be under 0.08 by the time the evening ended.

    As predicted, polyamorous relationships are all the go these days. The $Oz has a full article (no comments) about a devoted wife making her devoted husband’s dreams come true by arranging a three way with a stranger (female).

    She had intended to buy him an expensive watch. Turned out he wanted to watch and more.

    Just for mUnter clinging to the delusion that the IG report has no impact on Mueller’s grand plan.
    Let me explain it simply.
    There are three arms to Mueller’s attack.
    Firstly, there is the Wussian collusion, which we all know has come up empty (and isn’t even a crime in the first instance).
    Secondly, is the possibility of getting Trump on obstruction for the firing of Comey. This was obvious from the leaked written questions Mueller put to Trump’s lawyers. Over a quarter of them were around Comey’s firing. That is now demonstrably justifiable which is what Trump can now assert.
    Thirdly is the possibility of catching Trump in trivial mis-statement in interview and charge him with lying. With Guiliani now on board, that interview is never going to happen.
    Fold your cards Bobby.
    It’s over.

    A lot of Trumpkins are going to spend a lot of time in federal ass-pounding penitentiaries.

    Monty it is my understanding that rape is a wrong, and an institution that allows it even by inaction is completely outside any ethical bound.
    Are you saying that you approve it for non-Leftists?

    Yep the media is complicit in promoting all sorts of perversions or societal ills. Conservatives warned that polyamory would be next after gay marriage and it will pass after which Sharia law will be a given and will be given legal status. And then we will sit back and see if gay trumps Muslim trumpz woman trumps lesbian trumps tranny. Remember the pe-do and zo-ophile clubs are also gearing up just as was also predicted. They make no secret that they use the gay lobby as their inspiration for their strategic lobbying.

    Dreher on the NYT’s “Love City: 24 Hours of Romance, Lust and Heartache in New York”:

    At this point, you may ask yourself: what kind of parents want their teenagers involved in a polyamorous bisexual threesome? And, as these three are minors: what kind of parents give permission for The New York Times Magazine to profile their relationship? Welcome to 2018.

    Very interesting DB. I’m inclined to take his conclusion seriously. Time to do some Ark building.

    yes Boris I drop in, I post, I might stay away for a few months I drop in again,

    I do the about same. But If you came here even occasionally it 2015-16,you would couldn’t possibly missed srr, who as I said was not like you. She was thr most prolific cat commenter ever, or maybe second only to Bird.

    So I went it alone, and this morning took everything but halved the dose of what I felt to be the most likely culprit. So far, so good. My BP, which was consistently around over 70, is now back up in the 100 over 80 range. Score: Engineers – 1, Medicos – 0.

    Maybe it was supposed to be that low to keep the pressure of the newly knitted arteries?

    When we have a dodgy pressure line and have to keep it going until replacement we reduce the pressure.

    Firstly, there is the Wussian collusion, which we all know has come up empty (and isn’t even a crime in the first instance).

    We shall see. I think we will soon here from manaford and cohen.

    Secondly, is the possibility of getting Trump on obstruction for the firing of Comey. This was obvious from the leaked written questions Mueller put to Trump’s lawyers. Over a quarter of them were around Comey’s firing. That is now demonstrably justifiable which is what Trump can now assert.

    Not at all. Trump had full right to fire Comey. It did not need any wrongdoing on his behalf. However, if it turns out that he fired him specifically to stop or change course of investigation, this may be serious.

    Thirdly is the possibility of catching Trump in trivial mis-statement in interview and charge him with lying. With Guiliani now on board, that interview is never going to happen.

    Well no one ever is forced to lie. Of course trump lies all of the time, so it is kind of hard to change on’s habit. I think Giuliani prefers for trump not to testify, but it appears hat Trump actually wants to testify.

    Noting so far looks like an impeachable offense. But the wheels of justice move slowly.

    Boris , your Trump Derangement Syndrome trolling is pathetic. Surely you have something new, original?

  233. DrBeauGan

    Of course trump lies all of the time, so it is kind of hard to change on’s habit.

    Do you have an example of Trump telling a lie, Boris? Do share it.

    I have a friend in the US who has TDS, and she gave a list of his lies. So I started on the first one which was about Sweden having problems with its immigrants. She stopped answering my emails after a while. We never got onto the others.
