MT, I take it you are going to TUD for a meeting. Remind me who the Professor was there who wrote the book on Railway Engineering. I don't think he is there now. When we were doing HSL Zuid, we met with him to discuss embedded rail systems.

Back from our school reception. Game is at 4pm tomorrow against Albany Academy. Then big tail gate grill for the team, parents, coaches. Expecting 80. CH, We have a dog park in southampton, conveniently located across from the Police station:) Just in case, I guess. Never took the Beagles there but when they meet other dogs on the beach walks all they want to do is smell them, and then play. Hope Teddy feels better. If Grassley sticks to his guns, she is not coming, and the Dems, MFM, Soros-Styer Cult Machine will then go into high PR gear. Make the GOP evildoers and villians for not appreciating women's rights, supporting sexual abuse, etc. It is the game they play, right out of Alinsky's playbook. Wouldn't surprise me that Zippy has his fingerprints on their playbook. BTW, most PGA Tour guys are conservatives, and over 56% voted for Trump. Only about 12% voted Dem. The rest are foreign guys or didn't vote. If she was a PGA groupie, then it proves she is batshit crazy. Off to dreamland. Slaap lekker, tot morgen.

We are pulling into Bridgeport on the Port Jeff ferry. Going up to see Frederick's first game at Canterbury. It took me an hour to finish the last thread, and to this poing on the Friday thread. I knew Grassley would fold like a cheap suit. Now CNN is supposedly reporting that Rosenstein proposed using the 25th amendment to bounce Trump? Well, it is CNN, so most likely fake news. https://go.cnn.com/?stream=cnn%3Fsr

I am late to the thread since last night, but FBN had Dersh on the Money Honey show this morning. He was absolutely livid at this Kavanaugh spectacle. He was calling out the ACLU, the Dems, Libertarians, everyone who would agree to Ford's demand that Kavanaugh testify first. I mean, he was full blown angry at this whole charade. When you've lost Dersh, you have lost the war. I have no idea where this is headed, but if Grassley, and the GOP allow this thing to delay past Monday they are dead to me. Plus if they allow any of the Ford/Katz demands then it really is time to reassess the party as a whole. I think CCC puts up an ice rink every year with an inflatable dome. They even have their own junior hockey team, IIRC. The club ironically is in CC Section 5 where Kavanaugh's wife is or was the manager.

Clarice, Pin pulls bullshit out of thin air all night here. When does he sleep?

That house on Thornapple doesn't have a pool. Now what?

Grassley is a farmer. Common sensical. Understands how flyover country feels in these kind of situations. If he caves, I will be absolutely surprised. He will be fair but not an idiot. He he disappoints me, then he is kaput in my book as an honorable man.

daddy, One of my prized possession is a Terry and The Pirates proof that I have framed. Back then they were like 24" by 56" So they could be photo-printed down to the newspaper size. Signed by Milton Canniff.

I just can't get the Whelan confidence out of my mind. He is a damn credible person when you consider his CV, and experience. Why would a guy that accomplished hang that credibility on something impeachable by the left? No. Clarice is right, he needs to put up or shut up by tomorrow of the latest.

There are the parents who owned the house, right? Could it be that Whelan has found them, and they can state that Kavanaugh wasn't one of the kids there that night? Or, would they prefer not to even admit it was their house, since it had underage drinking going on? I just have a suspicion that the house, and party, and date in question gets revealed. Kavanaugh has a lock tight alibi.

One other thing. Of all the POTUS's we have had since Truman none of them have done what Trump has done for our Korean War dead, and brought them home. Added to this list of accomplishments: http://www.magapill.com Its a non-stop juggernaut. No wonder the Dems and the left are looking for the smallest of victories like delaying a vote on Kav for a week.

Okay, I am a little over 300 miles north-northeast of Bethesda, and we open our pool up in Mid-May (to beat the Memorial Day openings). Have it heat big time since May's night temps are in the 60's, sometimes 50's. That said, I would think, the pool party in Bethesda was most likely either right before the term ended or had ended. In New York, public and parochial schools get out mid June. NYC private schools much earlier. When would Holton-Arms and GP get out? I say the party was 1982 in June.

If Grassley caves on "conditions" then he has lost the plot. Kavanaugh didn't have any "conditions" except to have to sit through the bleeding-dick rages of MoveOn, Pinkos, Sorosbots, and the inane questioning of Mazie Hirono, Kamala Harris, and Spartacus.

I see Twitchy is all-a-twitter over Ed Whelan saying he is 100% certain a shoe is about to drop that vindicates Kavanaugh, and will force DiFi to apologize. Ed is a Harvard Law grad, clerked for Scalia, wrote a book about Scalia, and is now NRO legal pundit. As old John McLaughlin would say, "its in the range of metaphysical certainty." Damn I hope so, we need to put this tired, and deranged episode to bed, quickly.

Christine Ford appears to be as batshit crazy as our resident troll. Her attorney is a mirror image of both. This is where my admoration for Grassley's leadership on that committee gets risky. If, she doesn't give an affirmative by tomorrow, schedule the vote for Monday, or send it directly to McConnell. Time to get off the pot.

For all our Jewish friends and family at JOM: β€œG’mar Tov.” Clarice, since you are the resident gourmand & chef here, what's on the menu for tomorrow's breakfast?

Heard on Varney that since the election, the Dow has achieved 100 closing highs. Your Latin Phrase of the Day: Romani primum diem a sole appellaverunt, qui primus est stellarum. Think that Observatory in New Mexico.

Tom R, Because, once again, Trump will and did meet with anyone just to know them, uderstand their aspirations, ideas, biases, etc. Why is this so difficult for you to understand. Jesus, guy, go read his books and intterviews. Typical Trump.

Strata, kugels, and smoked salmon bagel for me. Happy Yom Kippur.

Tom R, Because, he is smarter than Mueller, Sessions, Rosenstein. He knew since Sessions recused that he would need to be ready for an onslaught and so far he has prevailed. You don't have to win every battle right away, sometimes they punch themselves out.
