“When the U.S. Tried to Control Hurricanes”

From the 1940s to the 1970s, Project Stormfury and other government efforts tested the limits of the power of science.

BREAKING: KAEPERNICK’S KAPER
Paul noted a couple days ago the very public “workout” publicity stunt of Colin Kaepernick, which was scheduled to go off at 3 pm eastern time today at Atlanta Falcons stadium. But suddenly this morning Kaepernick complained that the media were being overly restricted, and suddenly moved the event to a local high school and delayed the start time.

ESPN reported about an hour ago:

Colin Kaepernick’s NFL workout is being moved to a new location in the Atlanta area and will now start at 4 p.m. ET Saturday, representatives for the quarterback announced Saturday afternoon.

The NFL had previously declined to allow media and cameras into the workout, as Kaepernick had requested for transparency, attorney Ben Meiselas and agent Jeff Nalley said in a statement. They said media would now be allowed to attend the workout.

No idea if it is going off right now or not (I’m at an airport). Former Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson was supposed to run the workout, but TMZ reports there are doubts whether this will still happen:

Colin’s team is now saying that if the guy’s still up for it, they’d like to keep the invite open for former Browns coach Hue Jackson to oversee the drills and workout Colin will now go through at the Atlanta-area school. Jackson was originally scheduled to lead Kap through QB drills at the Falcon facility — time will tell if he’ll show to the new location.

Stay tuned for updates. My hunch is, this workout may not come off at all, but if it does and if teams are unimpressed with his readiness to play, he’ll blame it on the NFL’s conditions that “forced” him to change the venue, and we’ll start a new round of stunts.

CarlosC 1014am - So, as I surmised in my 915pm, you have absolutely nothing to offer that is substantive to back your TDS tirade. All you can do is repeat your fervent hope that somehow he won't make it to November and face someone from the clown car in the election. Recall, that only you of the Left equate allegations with evidence.

Robert Cross

"Schiff's reading it to her seemed to be a purposeful political ploy to unsettle the witness and get more lamestream media points on the air in real time." WRONG

trumpler's twitter rant seemed to be a purposeful political ploy to unsettle the witness and get more fake news on the air in real time. RIGHT

Everything trumpler put on twitter was a lie, plain and simple. It was a purposeful and laughable attempt (yet again) to discredit a detractor. This time is was a woman (hmmmm is there pattern here?) who spent her lifetime (unlike his own self-serving 3 years) of public service to the people of the United States. It is unfathomable as to how you people can't see through trumpler's 4th grade shenanigans. The man is mentally incapable of doing his job.

How about the chants of "lock her up" aimed at Hillary during the campaign led by Flynn?

George Rebane

RobertC 404pm - So you seem to have missed my point again about Schiff's timing.

PaulE 416pm - Re Hillary, Comey brought up and told everyone of all the evidence that over 30 prosecutors across the country signed a letter stating that they were willing to prosecute on what the FBI dug up. Why do you think Comey came up with that historical press conference to defend Hillary on the totally irrelevant assumption of intent?

Paul Emery

Gregory writes about last Wed's Town Hall Meeting:

It's also a shame that it was a bait and switch... it was about funneling folks to the sunrise movement and their Green New Deal push.

You're wrong again Gregory. The youn man who spoke about the Sunrise Movement spoke for a total of 7 minutes 34 seconds showing it was hardly the focus of the Town Hall and not close to being a "bait aned switch".

I know because I edited the piece for later broadcast.

You're not doing too well today Gregory. You're 0 for 2 so far today.

Paul Emery

The total time of the Town Hall was two hours and 12 minutes.

Walt

Keep trying Babs, Trump has done a better job than most. Including Reagan. Just because Trump is scrapping LIB ideals wholesale,, I can see where you would be pissed and flail wildly.

Paul Emery

So George in your view it's ok for the Trump Campaign to orchestrate chants of "lock her up" before she's even charged with anything?

Also who were the 30 prosecutors you referred to and under what circumstance were they summoned.

Walt

Paul Emery | 16 November 2019 at 04:36 PM

Seriously you think you have some sort of a point on "lock her up" That is one of your lamest allegations I have heard from you lately. My friend Susan started that chat in Cleveland and you loons of the left still repeat it. I suggest you take your tirade to ANTIFA and their pals who beat people up and destroy property to keep a conservative from speaking on campus. Now that is something real. People in an audience screaming that chant are pussycats next to Black Lives Matter seeking to fry the police like bacon. You have lost your little mind.

Paul Emery

Toad or excuse me Todd, that chant was advocated by the Trump campaign. Antifa is an outlaw anarchist group with no connection with the Democratic campaign.

Walt

Emery. You go right ahead and explain to us why Hillary is innocent of the charges that were laid out by Comie.
From felony mishandling of gov. secrets to destruction of evidence. And the pile of other charges in between.
Yet there is no evidence whatsoever against Trump. After three damned years of looking and trying to fabricate evidence.
Clintons can do no wrong in your addled mind.

The drop in CO2 emissions in the USA is almost entirely due to fracking, as the natural gas recovered is cheap and has been displacing coal.

Fracking is therefore to warmistas a lot like appendicitis is to a Christian Scientist.

re: Gregory@5:44PM

That's interesting. I'll google a bit for that.

It sounds like the craziness concerning oil pipelines. It's as if trucks, trains, and tankers are somehow more safe at moving gas and liquid substances than an underground conduit. Go figure. No doubt there's always that push to decommision nukes in order to drive the numbers back up again.

Upside-down world must be a fun place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

Gregory. So hang on a minute. I admit that I don't follow climate news closely.

Looking at this:

https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2019-04/documents/us-ghg-inventory-2019-chapter-executive-summary.pdf

US CO2 emissions have been dropping for years. Slightly above 1990 numbers and far below 2005. Methane dropping since 2005. So what is all the new-found uproar about, complete with horrid hectoring Swedish child activists?

Am I missing something?

“Libs circulating doctored photo of Rep. Elise Stefanik giving the finger after Marie Yovanovitch’s testimony”

“You can tell that Rep. Elise Stefanik hit a nerve during the impeachment hearings Friday, as George Conway and a bunch of follows are posting their donations to her opponent’s campaign and celebrating already that she won’t be reelected. Don’t be too sure though; they tried to shut her down Friday, but she persisted.

You know they’re desperate when they’re passing around a Photoshop of Stefanik giving the finger as former ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was receiving a standing ovation from the Democrats.”

THE “WITNESS INTIMIDATION” FARCE

“Unfortunately for the Democrats, Trump didn’t engage in it today. And if Trump’s tweets of his opinions about witnesses become the basis for an article of impeachment, I think the public will laugh the Dems out of court, so to speak, on that one.”

The chi coms think they can impose censorship on people in other countries the fools -

Australia's parliamentary intelligence committee head, who has previously criticised Beijing, said he had been blocked from entering China due to his "frankness about the Chinese Communist Party".

Andrew Hastie warned several months ago that the world's approach to containing China's rise resembles the "catastrophic failure" to prevent the advance of Nazi Germany.

He said Australia's sovereignty and freedoms could be threatened by Beijing -- much as France lost its territory to Germany at the beginning of World War II.

Hastie, along with fellow government politician James Paterson, had planned to travel to China for a study tour next month but both have been banned from entering the country.

"We regret the decision of the government of the People's Republic of China... that at this time Mr Hastie and Senator Paterson are not welcome on a China Matters study tour to Beijing," tour organiser China Matters said late Friday.

In an opinion piece in the Sydney Morning Herald in August, Hastie wrote that Australia, like France during the war, has "failed to see how mobile our authoritarian neighbour has become".

Trump and the Deplorables new theme song
http://sierradragonsbreathe.blogspot.com/2019/11/trump-and-deplorables-new-theme-song.html

Paul Emery

Trump is 0 for 2 in recent Gov races. This last one in Louisiana.

"Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards won reelection Saturday, the second gubernatorial victory for Democrats in a red state this month.

Edwards, the only Democratic governor in the Deep South, narrowly defeated Republican businessman Eddie Rispone, 51 percent to 49 percent, according to The Associated Press. His victory came despite President Donald Trump traveling to the state twice over the final 11 days of the race to campaign for Rispone."

So we can surmise that the pony tail of ignorance is in full support of the highly restrictive abortion bill signed by Edwards from @843. As for Kentucky we swept every other office and have super majorities in both houses.

‘It’s Really Refreshing And Relaxing’: College Students Say Ditching Their Smartphones For A Week Changed Their Lives

Seven days later, “who’s excited they’re getting their phones back today?” Professor Donna Freitas asked.

Gone were the nerves and the shakes.
“Everything is perfect right now. I’m having a lot better relationships… it’s a stress free environment no pressure about social media,” Jacob Dannenberg said.

“I think it’s really refreshing and relaxing… I was able to fall asleep a lot easier,” student Adrianna Cigliano.

They managed to find their way, even without GPS for a week.
“I just had to take the same route everywhere,” one student joked.

They were also more productive.
“Doing homework was 100 percent easier. I got it done faster, I was in the zone,” Cigliano said.
Prof. Freitas says it’s important for everyone to assess their addiction.

“Are the conveniences worth it because the drawback are pretty significant,” Freitas said.
“The face that no one can focus, that my students can’t sleep… They feel bad about themselves because of social media, the list goes on and on.”

The sweet reunions went sour quickly as endless notifications piled up.
“Oh my God this is so bad!… I just want to shut it off now!” the Adelphi class said.

Students say they’re not quite breaking up with their phones, but promise the relationship will change.
“I want to keep that balance and figure out the healthy relationship that we deserve to have with our phones,” Cigliano added.

“My screen time is definitely going to go down and I’m going start to appreciate my surroundings more because usually I’m looking at my screen all the time,” Ashley Castillero said.

The US natural gas export business saw record-breaking growth in 2018, and the trend is set to continue in 2019 as well which makes the Democrats new green deal look even more like a Hollywood fantasy tale.

The latest data collected by the US Department of Energy shows that liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports hit a new record in November 2018 with approximately 110 Bcf. This is a substantial 35% increase from November 2017.

It's not a bad idea though, offering to help out his family. Rogue elements in the Justice Department can look over every bank transfer, phone call, email, private conversations of everyone in Trump's family. A fishing expedition like that can surely turn up something. Show me the man and I'll find you the crime.

----,,,not sure how these State Department officials that have served under both Republican and Democrat administrations for decades suddenly became Demo Deep Staters???

Political contributions from DOJ employees ran 79% (D). State Department ran 88% (D) in 2016 and 96% (D) in 2020.

----‘’’you mean like what Ken Starr did for years during the Clinton administration???

Yes, but orders of magnitude larger in terms of both staff and technology, in a partisan and most importantly, independent investigation. That wasn't line staff actively bringing down an administration.

Honestly, if you can't see the danger of the current situation (let's say that the intelligence agencies and DOJ executives were trying to bring down President Hillary, the same thing would be true), there's no point in the conversation. Those ex-executives at NSA/FBI/CIA are truly a danger to the republic.

Dude, just go back to your partisan bickering. Not a moment is spent criticizing any kind of real Trump foreign policy or legislative position, it's just trash talk. Being an unwitting militarist is a tough gig, but I guess someone has to do it.

Administrivia - Gentle people, I'm doing my best to have you keep your comments under the relevant commentary posts. Current impeachment comments belong under the recent Scattershots where I again raise the issue. If your comments disappear, it could be because Typepad erroneously put them into the spam folder (from which I rescue them as often as possible), or I delete them because the commenter is not paying attention to my posts. If you don't care about what I write, you're on the wrong website. RR always has an open Sandbox for topics I don't cover, but when there's proximal post with the topic of your comment, then PLEASE place it accordingly. It's a pain in the ass to take time deleting otherwise fine comments in the wrong place. Thank you.

Bill Tozer

Dr. Rebane (@10:13 am), forgive us as we know not what we do. In regards to Scenes (and my concern) of the DAMAGE the Administrative State is doing to our democracy and future Presidents, it is an valid concern that extends beyond the current “ low rent sequel to Russia, Russia, Russia”.

The next President will not feel free to discuss confidentiality with his advisors and kick around complex ideas lest he be called up before Congress. Future Presidents will be surrounded with heads of the FBI, DOJ, CIA, NSA, State Department and the multiple of the Alphabet Soup agencies that’s he/she may consider back stabbing leakers and so forth. Obama had his wingman (Holder) who he could trust to carry out his priorities and many more such people in the Executive Branch. Not so anymore. A future President will naturally shield him/herself from such employees that work for him/her out of distrust and not avail himself to all information to set policy.

“The impeachment hearings going on in the House right now are a joke.

Anyone who understands the process knows that Trump isn’t going to get thrown out of office, especially not with Republicans in control of the Senate, where the impeachment trial would have to take place.

But don’t underestimate the damage that the impeachment is causing.

Trump has no chance of getting a trade deal done — or any deal for that matter — with other governments when foreigners think there is even a tiny chance he’ll lose his job.

What’s going on in Washington right now is a disgrace. What it is doing to the country is unconscionable.”

Hmmm. I noticed the Dems in the Senate blocked Trump’s plan to reduce the cost of prescription drugs....under the guise that it does not go far enough. It goes pretty far, but 1/2 to 3/4 a loaf is a non starter in this current climate.

Thank goodness there are people like William Barr who are well versed in the separation of powers and that an assault on the Executive Branch is an assault on the Constitution. Now there is a chorus to impeach Bill Barr, as well as Pence and the local mayor of Nevada City.....without a crime that can be named. No lol.
——————
“Recall that after Dems took the House in 2018, Trump complimented her, saying, “I give her a lot of credit . . . She’s worked long and hard.”

He added: “Hopefully, we can all work together next year to continue delivering for the American people, including on economic growth, infrastructure, trade, lowering the cost of prescription drugs. These are some of things that the Democrats do want to work on, and I really believe we’ll be able to do that.”

None of that happened. Pelosi aligned her power with the resistance and rejected Trump’s offer of bipartisanship, especially on immigration, where she refused even to negotiate.

Worse, she made the fateful decision to join Schiff and others in pushing Russia, Russia, Russia. When Robert Mueller gave them nothing to work with, they instantly seized on Ukraine, which GOP Rep. Devin Nunes rightly called a “low-rent sequel.”

Eric Ciaramella, whom Real Clear Investigations suggests is the likely so-called whistleblower, received emails about Ukraine policy from a top director at George Soros’s Open Society Foundations.

The emails informed Ciaramella and a handful of other Obama administration foreign policy officials about Soros’s whereabouts, the contents of Soros’s private meetings about Ukraine and a future meeting the billionaire activist was holding with the prime minister of Ukraine.

A primary recipient of the Open Society emails along with Ciaramella was then-Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland, who played a central role in the anti-Trump dossier affair. Nuland, with whom Ciaramella worked closely, received updates on Ukraine issues from dossier author Christopher Steele in addition to her direct role in facilitating the dossier within the Obama administration.

Polls, polls, and more poles.

THE DEMOCRATS AREN’T FOOLING ANYONE

Rasmussen asked this question about the Democrats’ politicized impeachment charade: “When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump, or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?”

The results:

Most voters don’t expect fair play from the media when it comes to news coverage of the Democrats’ impeachment attempt.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Likely U.S. Voters think most reporters are trying to help impeach President Trump when they write or talk about the impeachment effort. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 32% believe most reporters are simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner. Eight percent (8%) say most are trying to block Trump’s impeachment.

My guess is that most of those who say the press is merely reporting the news don’t actually believe it, but are just Democratic Party loyalists.

Interestingly, minorities are more skeptical of reporters’ motives than whites:

Other minority voters (60%) believe even more strongly than whites (51%) and blacks (53%) that most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump.

I expect President Trump to do quite well with all the principal minority groups (blacks, Hispanics and Asians) in next year’s election.

The Kentucky gov's race was lost because the GOP candidate was not liked. An incumbent who had 4 years in office to make his case and the people said no. All the other statewide races were won by GOP candidates.

And in Looseyana, the Democratic incumbent was wellliked and more of a Republican than most Republicans in California... seems to be a modern Blue Dog Dem.


In other words, Paul: stop lying through your teeth to try to manufacture a false talking point.

Paul steps on his own feet - "You need to be refreshed on the 233-197 seat lead in the House the Dems achieved during the Blue Wave House midterm elections . Now it seems the Pubbers can't even win Governors races in strong Republican States-Kentucky and Georgia of all places. You can thank Trump for that."
Uh, Paul...
I could have sworn that Trump was destroying our democracy.
Can't have it both ways.

Funny how Trump who has never held a single political office until 2017 is to blame for decades of problems in the US.

Virginia has been turning from red to purple to blue over years. It’s mostly due to the number of federal employees in the state who are about 90% Dem. Now, the college that Thomas Jefferson himself founded (U of V) is now hell bent on removing his name or any reference to the name...not to mention George Washington.
On top of that, they elected a Governor who wore a Klans hood, a Lt. Gov that has raped black women (with 10,000 times more evidence than what was used against Kavanaugh), and a Attorney General who donned black face.

Just like old times. Yep, the Dem south shall rise again.

Quote of the day.....maybe.

“I was surprised when Epstein killed himself, but not as surprised as Epstein.”

Interesting discussion about the gov not being able to change election rules...It’s been done before by F.D. Roosevelt as mentioned here.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected President of the United States four times: 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944. ... As a result of FDR's unprecedented four terms, the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified in 1951, limiting all future presidents to two elected terms.

"You need to be refreshed on the 233-197 seat lead in the House the Dems achieved during the Blue Wave House midterm elections"

Punchy needs to be refreshed as to what had been happening in the two years between Nov '16 and '18... Trump was derided by your buddies as perhaps even a Russian asset, and beginning with the initial Mueller start, a countdown to the next election and the Mueller results which was expected to right the wrong of Nov '16.

Didn't happen.

While the Congress changed hands, not by a huge majority, many of those seats were from areas that Trump carried handily... and if the 'impeachment' doesn't end with a removal... '20 might not work out as planned.

Scott O

Barnie - Yeah - funny how all of those things the Trump Haters said Trump would do, actually were done by a famous Dem POTUS. Whom the left still idolizes.
FDR said that being a servant is all an African American would be good for. And he put American citizens in concentration camps. Based on race.
And he signed the bill to take job opportunities away from Blacks.
But Trump is EVIL, because he just maybe, might do what they fantasize he will do.
But has never done.
The fact that he proves them wrong every day enrages them.

" the Trump Haters said Trump would do"

I'm not altogether sure they believe all of that either. My theory on the matter is that Trump is a guy that they viscerally can't stand, the loud guy on the football team that made fun of them in the locker room, so you accuse him of being the absolute worst thing you can think of.

The urban left, humming 'The Internationale', think of him as a Nazi, ready to round up Jews and marching in jackboots towards Russia (well, maybe not Russia, Berkeley perhaps). Feminists? He's a rapist mysogynist bastard who reminds them of their ex-husband. The Republican-hating African-Americans? KKK personified, putting up Nathan Forrest statues and interfering with naming every main street in America after MLK. (hmmmm, maybe an idea for Broad St?). Open borders zealots? He's Vlad the Impaler tearing infants from their mothers' breasts, impaling them on spikes, keeping hundreds of millions from rejoining families in the promised land.

They whisper the stories to each other in a peculiar sort of fear pornography. The horror, the horror.

Naturally, his backers of whatever policy persuasion combine all those features.

Really all you're seeing is an argumentative guy who went to Washington without a pre-built shadow government ready to roll. Oh well.

Oh my. Victor Davis Hansen takes his gloves off against Max Boot and David French. A man can only take so much of the Unhinged. Rather long for the average sock puppet.

The Wages of Trump Fixation

First paragraphs:

“Max Boot recently wrote that my arguments against the impeachment inquiry are prima facie proof of why the Democrats should, in fact, impeach Trump: “If even the great historian Victor Davis Hanson can’t make a single convincing argument against impeachment, I am forced to conclude that no such argument exists.”

In fact, I made 10 such arguments, all of which Boot attempted, but has failed, to refute. In this context, Boot’s intellectual erosion as a historian and analyst is a valuable warning of stage-four Trump Derangement Syndrome. I offer that diagnosis with regret given I once knew and liked Boot. But his commentary over the last three years has become sadly unhinged.

Most recently Boot declared—and then quickly retracted it only in embarrassment after popular outrage—that chief ISIS mass-murdering psychopathic Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi did not kill himself in cowardly fashion as Trump had described: “The assertion that Baghdadi died as a coward was, in any case, contradicted by the fact that rather than be captured, he blew himself up.”

When Baghdadi was cornered by American forces, he chose to murder three innocent children rather than surrender—consistent with his entire venomous career of ordering the beheading, burning, and mutilating of innocent captives from a safe distance. The murder of defenseless children is cowardly.

No one should know better the horrific crimes of a mass-murdering Josef Stalin than the Russian-born Boot. Stalin’s purges, orchestrated famines, gulags, show trials, liquidation of the officer class, and atrocities during World War II perhaps accounted for over 20 million Russian deaths. So how could Boot write, “I would sooner vote for Josef Stalin than I would vote for Donald Trump”? Twenty million dead souls don’t quite match Boot’s hatred of Trump.“

Last paragraphs:

“As to specifics, it was not Fox News whose anchors falsely assured us about every month or so that the “walls” of the Mueller effort to get Trump “were closing in on him.” Throughout this entire sad saga, it is also not Fox News but rather CNN that has been frequently forced to fire or reassign a large number of marquee reporters, analysts, and anchors for unprofessional, unethical, or simply incompetent journalism.

At many levels, the psychological pathology of projection has characterized this entire three-year effort to remove Trump. That syndrome also applies to the NeverTrump rump that for over 1,000 days has misled and smeared in its self-righteous pursuit of supposed truth and civility.”

No, it's an example of an old fashioned "argument" generally described as a coherent series of reasons, statements or facts intended to support or establish a point of view.

I'd suggest you give it a try but I don't think you've the knack for coherence.

,,,lots of shoot em ups on the news lately,,, sure is great having all those guns floating around...looks like Trump is deranging the entire country!!! With America Doing So Great Now why all the shootings???

Have you heard Trump wants to make auto/truck pollution requirements a standardized federal standard???

That is what is needed for gun control...one federal standard so you cannot buy a gun in one state with little to no background checks and take it to another state.

Supreme Court Temporarily Blocks Subpoena of Trump Financial Documents

“For the first time in our nation’s history, Congress has subpoenaed the personal records of a sitting president from before he was in office,” read a statement last week from Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow. “And, for the first time in our nation’s history, a court upheld a congressional subpoena to the president for his personal papers. Those decisions are wrong and should be reversed.”

CC 10:41 - "That is what is needed for gun control...one federal standard so you cannot buy a gun in one state with little to no background checks and take it to another state."
And pray tell what 'standard' would that be?
What evidence do you have that the recent shootings in Cali involved guns brought in illegally from another state?
Ah, yes - that's right.
None.
