Sure would like to know how a wall on the Mexican border prevents the Sackler family from pressuring doctors to overprescribe opiates.

And—the Sackler Family’s consigliere who pushed for deregulation was…Screwdy Giuliani!

This is a real headline, and a real case:

Second judge recuses himself from Spokane County cat pee case as scholar argues sealed records violate First Amendment (Spokane Spokesman-Review, more at the link):

A second judge has recused himself from a secretive case in which a Spokane County judge sued his neighbor over cat excrement and pee on his porch.

Judge Gary Libey, who usually presides in Whitman County Superior Court, had been expected to visit Spokane for a hearing Tuesday, but shortly before it was scheduled to begin, the Whitman County court administrator, Ginger Devorak, said the judge had recused himself. She did not give a reason, and no record of the recusal was immediately available in the Spokane County clerk’s office.

Libey had been expected to decide whether to unseal records in the case, in which Michael Price, the presiding judge in Spokane County Superior Court, sued a cat owner, Jennifer Tanaka-Fees, who lived behind him on the South Hill.

At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if the next CoS is simply a bunch of weasels in a suit.

Amazing that now Trump can’t even give away a position that people would be falling over themselves to get in a normal administration.

As a reminder, Virginia abolished parole twenty years ago during the last conservative “tough on crime” era.

prisonlegalnews.org

While the judge could reduce the sentence recommendation from the jury, he could also troll the murderer:

I’m going to show some leniency on you, son. I’ll knock the Life sentence down to “time served” and you can just serve the other 319 years.

So there is a Wall that, presently, successfully keeps the Brownies out, and a Wall that still needs to be built to keep the Brownies out, or “I’ll shut down the government!”

Brilliant!

It’s the Schroedinger’s Cat of walls. It exists and doesn’t exist at the same time.

Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

As if the Brexit shitshow couldn’t possibly get any shittier:

UK Prime Minister Theresa May will face a vote of no confidence in her leadership later on Wednesday.

Conservative MPs will vote between 18:00 GMT and 20:00 GMT.

The challenge to Mrs May’s position comes after the required 48 letters calling for a contest were delivered.

Mrs May, who has been prime minister since shortly after the UK voted to leave the European Union in 2016, has faced criticism in her party for the Brexit plan she has negotiated.

The prime minister is expected to make a statement in Downing Street at 08:30 GMT.

bbc.com

The “threshold” being referred to is that enough letters have been submitted by the Tories to force a leadership challenge.

Did conservatives have to fight 4 the right to marry? Have children? Do they get beaten up & murdered 4 their identity? Does the VP want them to pray the conservatism away? Do conservative children kill themselves at an alarming rate bc of how they’re treated at school & home?

I have a conservative gay friend who also tells me he has had more trouble with being conservative than with being gay.

he is very much in denial about what a lot of fundamentalists would like to do with him and his kind

PaddyPower putting the odds that May loses the no-confidence at a relatively long shot of 12:5 :

paddypower.com

So the odds favor that May wins.

Still, there is that chance that May loses. Many a horse have crossed the finish line with worse odds against them. So Boris Johnson just might have a chance. We’ll know before lunchtime here in the US.

More sous vide action, marinated a tough, thick chuck steak for a day then ran it at 131 degrees F for 24 hours in the bath, finished it off a couple minutes each side on the grill. Basically upgraded it to a quality sirloin like experience. Yay me.

In RDR2 news: I robbed the doctor’s side business and got the Schofield. I worked it by just getting in there, forcing the Doc to get the gangsters to open up the back door, killed the gangsters in the back ‘cuz there’s no other way, get the gun and then run around back where I stashed my horse and ran like hell. Try very hard NOT to engage the cops during the escape, that’s how you get a huge bounty to pay off. Just run. Also can confirm the obvious, that dynamite in enclosed spaces is a bad idea that will hurt and knock you on your ass for a bit, so my advice is to just pass on the safe and go for the gun which is in a box on the table.

Then, later on, right in the middle of fighting a bunch of got-damned O’Driscolls who I stumbled across while they were trying to free one of their buddies from a prisoner transport we all got attacked by some giant random ass grizzly bear who just charged roaring right into the middle of our squabble. I survived but what a shit show. Also found out if you wait by a prospector working a stream he’ll eventually find some gold and you can rob him for it, which he really doesn’t like, but again fuck him because that guy for sure would’ve voted for Trump. Remember to always put your mask on before robbin’ folk and then ride like hell after doing your dirt.

Oh yeah, if you see some lady on the side of the road complaining about her leg be ready for a scrap because it’s a trap, her and her two hidden friends will immediately try to rob you and it can get messy. If you see a lady who’s actually trapped under her dead horse you should help her and give her a ride home, she’s nice. There’s also another stranded lady who’s nice. So expect nice ladies but also be prepared for shifty gun molls is what I’m saying.

I also successfully hunted a legendary ram, so again yay me.

One popular Instagram gimmick in these parts is for tourists to pose naked at various scenic areas in Thailand. They usually get busted by the Thai police and immigration.

A Chinese photographer had one of his female models pose nude at the Forbidden City. Though her naughty bits were artfully covered, Chinese authorities arrested both of them for “non-harmonious” behavior.

Right. Dissenters are non-harmonious. So are people wishing to follow their particular religion, like Uighur Muslims, or Tibetan Buddhists, or Falun Gong-ists.

Basically, anything that threatens the primacy of the Party and the “feelings of the Chinese people” is non-harmonious and can get you in trouble.

PaddyPower putting the odds that May loses the no-confidence at a relatively long shot of 12:5 :

paddypower.com

So the odds favor that May wins.

That seems a reasonable assumption, as this vote of confidence is an internal Conservative party procedure, and as such, only Conservative MPs will be voting on their confidence in May’s leadership, which puts the odds in May’s favour.

If this was the type of motion of no confidence that Nicola Sturgeon etc are calling for- a House of Commons motion of no confidence in the Conservative government, in which all MPs can vote- then May would be in a far more precarious position.

Dr Lizardo  Dec 12, 2018 • 4:02:09am

A bit early to tell for certain, but I think that PM May will survive this no-contest vote from her own party. If she does, she’s secure in her position for another 12 months.

45
Dr Lizardo  Dec 12, 2018 • 5:09:57am

That’d be the smartest thing May could do - part of the rationale behind this attempted leadership challenge we’re seeing today is that a faction of the Tories are genuinely frightened that she’ll be leading the party into the next election, which is due in 2022.

If she steps down, say, towards the end of 2019 or the early part of 2020, I could a majority of Tories willing to put up with her until then, simply to get Brexit finished and then move on for the next general election campaign.

That’s provided that a general no-confidence vote doesn’t pass and the UK ends up with early elections anyway. I’ve seen some predicting it could happen as soon as next month.

High political drama, to say the least.

Trump says the Huawei CFO’s arrest may be used in negotiations w/ China AND he offered to intervene in the Justice Department’s case against her. This is after the admin claimed he was unaware of the arrest. In another world, this would be a bigger deal:

It might also be mentioned that she was arrested for violating trade sanctions against Iran, which exist only because Trump cancelled the Iran nuclear deal.

SMOTI watch: Immigration white nationalist agenda:

Hoft, Trump, and other white nationalists spew this nonsense about the cost of illegal immigration, and every last one of them is inflating the costs. They’re also exaggerating the effect the wall would have when most here are on overstayed visas, not from illegally crossing the border.

It doesn’t address that those illegals are paying taxes, whether it’s sales tax, fuel taxes, etc., while not being able to benefit from safety net programs or Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. Enforcement is certainly a cost, but not one running to $150 billion.

It’s all a sham to try and shut down immigration of nonwhites. Same as always from a white nationalist party.

I would argue that shipping all of them out would cost the USA $155M in lost revenues and taxes. They spend their wages within the USA, and fill jobs that employers could otherwise not fill with “native” workers.

Deporting them is very short-sighted, as well as cruel. See also, Brexit types, who want to ban all those non-British people coming from the EU.

I do house league with my Dad as my brother’s a senior in high school still. We have some women coaches. It’s good to see. The awesome thing is how the NBA leads by example. I honestly even though I don’t have a NBA team have so much more respect for how the NBA is run versus the MLB and NFL. When you’ve got guys like Lebron and Curry as the face of your league, you’re doing something right. Both are stand out guys and great role models for young men and women. And then there’s Pop who I think will go down as the Red Auerbach as his era not just a great builder of teams but a visionary, whereas Red was responsible for ending the color line, Pop has done a lot on gender and coaching too. You’d never know that Pop, an AF academy guy would be such a staunch liberal but he is and I love him for it and I’ve always admired his teams. I had a camp counselor that went to Wake Forest with Tim Duncan in the mid 90’s so I had the inside sports scoop on why Duncan was going to be the top pick that year. And yeah back to Nancy, she showed yesterday why there shouldn’t be any doubt at all who leads the Dems in the House. I really hope Seth Moulton and Tim Ryan learned something watching her interact with Trump yesterday. They could learn from her.

The thorn (T or t), yes, it was supplanted for a while by “y”, which did not exist in English, leading to “ye olde taverne”

Old English spelling was much more logical, particularly “hw” for the “?” sound—much better than the “wh” we use nowadays. In between, after the Norman Conquest, French-speaking scribes were completely thrown by it, coming up with messes like “quh”, which is why we get names like Farquhar and Colquhoon.

My Mom’s grandmother just missed the 1924 quotas by a few years. Makes me wonder too. And Anne was also born the same year as my grandfather too. Talking to foreign born cousins reminds me what fate really is. The events we have no control of yet lead us to today. Otto Frank also served in WWI and was from Frankfurt. My German family origins are about a hour from there. Always thought he was a particularly tough man to survive losing his entire family and then shared his grief by introducing the world to his daughter, whose writings will be with us many years.

I always found the WIlmer McLean full circle of the Civil War interesting. War started in his backyard in Mantissas, Virginia and then ended in his parlor in Appomattox. Or how the first and last British soldiers to die in WWI are buried side by side and that wasn’t by design.

That works as the effective end of the war, but it died a sputtering death. (Alabama surrendered a week or so later.) The last Confederate general to surrender was a Cherokee, who had spent most of the war fighting Union Cherokees. The last ship was the commerce raider CSS Shenandoah, six months later. They were concerned they would be treated as pirates because they hadn’t got the message. Couple weird facts in there.

That was the other song I listened to every morning.

You can cover “Little Wing” note for note as far as I am concerned (Stevie Ray Vaughn did a great job of it), but what really makes it for me it is the rotating speaker platform he used in the recording. There is a part where the Leslie speaker comes around (just as he walks up to that C-chord) that just lifts he top of my head off and tickles my braims every time.

But ‘Little Wing’ is one song (the intro and solo in particular) where you could put 500 guitarists in a room, and they’d all play it in their own limited way (because Jimi was an alien whose style could not be duplicated) and they’d all swear that they were playing it ‘right.’

No one can catch the actual flow and timing of Jimi’s licks. He had a texture that was all his and it came from the gods and shall never be repeated.

There is one guy though that might have been the closest and is sadly no longer with us either. I came across this the other day, been years since I listened to this tune (and album). They were friends too. I don’t think he ever wanted to copy Jimi, this tune might be as close to Jimi as he wanted to go. He had his own style too that not many can copy.

This particular charge is an entertaining sideshow; the Democrats will never have potential impeachment hearings to investigate this allegation. It is doubtful that this had any impact on the election results — it’s not as though Donny was a Michael Pence who would be suddenly unmasked as a three-timing adulterer. It would be more akin to the Clinton impeachment than the Nixon impeachment.

Trump needs to be brought down for his treasonous allegiance to dictators, for treatment of immigrants in U.S. custody, for his contempt toward the Constitution, and for money laundering and other financial crimes during his entire lifetime.

Sentencing hearing for Cohen is underway.

Cohen’s lawyer argues for leniency - claiming that no bank lost money on Cohen (as if that fucking matters). Trump directed Cohen to engage in criminal acts, Cohen engaged in criminal acts at behest of Trump, which ultimately included money laundering by and through Trump Org.

Cohen cooperated with Mueller means something - and a reduction is possible. But Cohen isn’t cooperating fully with the SDNY on the money laundering as it relates to Trump Org, so there’s that.

On balance, Cohen is fucked (legal term), and I think it’s likely to see his sentence in the 3-4 year range (reduction as per Mueller, but not full cooperation as with SDNY).

Must have been a wild scene in Greenwich Village in ‘66!

Wiki - Jimmy James and the Blue Flames

Jimmy James and the Blue Flames was a short-lived American rock group that was fronted by Jimi Hendrix, who was then going by the name “Jimmy James”. The band was Hendrix’s first extended foray into the 1966 Greenwich Village music scene and included future Spirit guitarist Randy California. At various New York clubs, they played a mix of rock, blues, and rhythm and blues songs as well as early versions of songs that became part of the Jimi Hendrix Experience repertoire. It was at such a performance that Animals’ bassist Chas Chandler first heard their rendition of “Hey Joe” and decided to invite Hendrix to England and become his producer.

Trump is an unindicted coconspirator on multiple federal felonies.

Everything else is spin. Cohen, Trump’s lawyer admits to engaging in felonies on behalf of Trump in open court.

The only question is Cohen’s sentence.

What is beyond a question at this point is that Trump engaged in crimes. He did.

The DOJ has rules to not indict a sitting president, but those are guidelines - never tested in court, and he should not be shielded from indictment because these crimes ultimately aided in him becoming president.

Speaking to Politico’s Eliana Johnson about what she wanted her legacy to be, Sanders said she hoped it would include turning up every day and doing “the very best job that I could to put forward the president’s message.”

Sanders also defended the president’s attitude toward female reporters, which has included insulting their intelligence and accusing them of asking “stupid” questions.

since the sentencing is so clear, someone should ask trump:

- was this guy one of the ‘good people on both sides”?
- which ‘side’ was he on?

I was not expecting such a strong sentence, not to say that I am not entirely pleased.

Every time some RWNJ speaks all I can think is how their worldview and language are stuck in the 19th century.

Important to get this treated while you can. A friend had surgery 5 years ago and seems to be doing fine. An uncle ignored his condition for years, at which time it was too late to perform any corrective surgery.

My dad put off the surgery for years afraid to “go under the knife” in case they screwed up and leave him unable to walk. He finally had it done and could have kicked himself for not having it done years earlier.

I don’t even know how many Gordian Knot twists your brain has to be in to see Kenneth Starr as a “fixer” for the Clintons.

But this columnist over at WingNut Daily tries to make that case, as they bleat about the “betrayal” by Brett Kavanaugh over de-funding Planned Parenthood.

I hate to say it, but I saw this one coming.

When President Trump selected Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, I knew it was at least a very risky pick.

But he won the hearts of conservatives because of the insanity of the opposition.

Now we know, for certain, that Brett Kavanaugh is a fraud. He should never have been President Trump’s first choice. He’s a weakling. He buckled to the extreme left to salvage his own reputation. I had a bad feeling about this guy - ever since his role in the Vincent Foster cover-up and his tutelage by former independent counsel Kenneth Starr.

How many times do we have to see this kind of betrayal by Republican nominees of Supreme Court justices - Sandra Day O’Connor, Anthony Kennedy, David Souter, John Roberts?

Apparently, Joseph Farah can see things that nobody else can see … know things that nobody else can know … can detect the slightest deviancy from Correct Thinking and expose it in micro-seconds.

May she be the first of the few left to see the light:

As a state house member, Senator Barbara Bollier often found herself at odds with her party: a pro-choice, pro-Medicaid expansion, pro-LGBT rights Republican who voted to the left of even many in the Democratic caucus. A few weeks before she announced her run as a Republican for the state Senate seat, Rep. Bollier was the top potential recruit for Democrats to run in that same Senate seat. Meeting with her that week, then Representative Bollier stood by her thought that if we wanted real change, people inside the Republican Party would have to change it from the inside — to keep it from becoming completely out of control.

Mission Hills Sen. Barbara Bollier this morning officially changed her party affiliation from Republican to Democrat.

Citing “frustrations that have been ongoing for nine years,” Bollier said Wednesday that the inclusion of anti-transgender language in the party platform had proved a breaking point for her.

“Morally, the party is not going where my compass resides,” Bollier said. “I’m looking forward to being in a party that represents the ideals that I do, including Medicaid expansion and funding our K-12 schools.”

shes close to a sociopath

She IS a sociopath.

Considering her family, possibly a psychopath.

I see May is up for a no-confidence vote tonight. It’s not likely but the best possible outcome is her failing, the fascists Conservatives failing to form a new government giving it over to a new Liberal government that then holds a new referendum that puts brexit in a grave with a stake through it’s heart.

Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that the Labour Party would stage a second referendum. Corbyn is a Brexit supporter in his own right, though he might agree to a second referendum - but that’s not something I’d be willing to bet money on.

“What’s in his heart” might get him banned from 4chan.

That is just code for “listen to what we tell you he said and not to what he actually says”

Don’t worry Rob. Nancy Smash can multitask.

Robby got his party talking points.

Hmmm. I may need to contact Rob and give him some shit about that and to remind him no one has forgotten Her Emails? and BENGHAZI? investigations.

Oh how I hate Rob Portman. Fucking lightweight wimp.

re: #84 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

The thorn (T or t), yes, it was supplanted for a while by “y”, which did not exist in English, leading to “ye olde taverne”

Just wanted to point out that this is a common misconception. Both T and Y were in Old English. In the 14th century, T began being replaced by TH. You only see “ye old” due to it becoming rare to find in printer’s typesets and its resemblance to Y (much more so in the fonts of the day) as well as some confusion about thorn itself due to it falling into disuse.

re: #232 Backwoods_Sleuth

in Ohio:

There is no way John Kasich is going to stop those bans.

He has done the Kasich thing. He doesn’t talk about what the Ohio House and Senate are doing regarding these abortion limits/bans. He let’s them take the heat and then when they get to his desk he will simply sign them and then tell the women of Ohio he is doing what is best for them…just as Jesus would want him to.

And if the women complain he will remind them to get back in the kitchen.

I will be more than surprised if it goes any other way.

Which is why I call it the best possible outcome. I just wish it were more likely.

Wasn’t that also during the time of the Great Vowel Shift that pretty radically reshaped English as well?

IngisKahn  Dec 12, 2018 • 11:51:40am

Actually it is thanks to that vowel shift that English spelling is so fouled up. They didn’t change any spellings as they did with previous vowel shifts.
