Friday Afternoon Thread: Al Jarreau Week

Moonlighting

So Good

Since I Fell For You w/David Sanborn

  • JBL20010

    For anyone living in California:

    State Sentate President Pro Tem, Kevin De Leon, has introduced the California Values Act. This bill would prevent any state resources being used in cooperation wit Federal deportation activities, including the sharing of state databases and the use of state or local law enforcement, to assist with Federal agencies for the purposes of immigration enforcement.

    Maybe “states rights” could finally be used for a good cause.

        Maybe she can Tweet about during the next SOTU address, like she did during a SOTU of her party’s leader. Yeah, Claire, we remember.

        • Admiral_Komack

          Damn right.

    • Tunisia

      The actual “Democratic base” is what keeps getting her ass reelected. There is a difference b/t the base and the left wing purist.

      • Miranda

        Very true.

        But you can’t tell the purists nothing – they really believe you can win over all of flyover country if you just stick to yelling “wall street” every 5 minutes.

      • Miranda

        The DNC has been criminally negligent in making that clear.

    • goldenstar

      She was the one who said that she knew that Ferguson Prosecutor and that he is exemplary. So she may want to do a retreat with great self-reflection.

      • conlakappa

        Oooh, is that a new curse, on the ‘low? A cleaned-up version of Aqua G’s cactus? “May you do a retreat with great self-reflection!”

        • sagittarius

          I actually like that as a curse… will have to keep it in the arsenal!

          • conlakappa

            Smiling sweetly while doing so! Years ago, like decades, my mother taught me that when someone is acting up and it really is nothing worth getting bent out of shape about, just smile beatifically while saying internally, “eff you.”

    • sagittarius

      Afternoon aleth!

      Claire’s humongous problem is she wants to do the Scarlett O’Hara white woman’s thing, then retreat to her privilege when she gets called out.

      She needs a damn primary because she doesn’t understand that Black folk are not and will not retreat to slavery, Old or New Jim Crow. We will die on or feet and not live on our knees. Shit, they can’t do anything more to us – they killing us because we have the nerve to exist. Fuck Claire and her ilk sideways, backwards and forwards.

      Fam, I don’t want to derail the conversation with greetings under this post; will provide proper greetings upthread.

    So the new excuse from Trumpkins about the historic escalating costs for security for the Trumps and travel costs is Trump is receiving so many death threats especially from left wing nuts. What a joke! After all the death threats Barack Obama and his family received. That has to be one of the saddest excuses I’ve seen yet.

    • Admiral_Komack

      The orange shitgibbon is supposed to be rich; he’d better spend his own money.

    • conlakappa

      “I’m getting death threats… yooge death threats… more death threats in the history of the nation…” Any of these tactics seem to be factors in the “why Clancy resigned’ reasoning than any claims of spying. Secret Service folks are neutral/not connected to any administration.

    Why Harward said “no” (and his wife probably said HELL no):

    But here’s the problem: Harward is a national security professional. In his conversations with White House officials this week, he began to fear that Trump didn’t understand what that phrase means — that is, someone who thinks rigorously about formulating and implementing foreign policy. Harward knows, as Trump does not, what it means to execute policy on the ground, and especially how difficult it can be to figure out how to implement ill-conceived strategy into an acceptable outcome. He has seen comrades bleed and die on orders he issued.

    Partly because of such experiences, he understands that the job is far bigger than one person. To be done right, it requires a team. Harward is also a SEAL veteran, which means, among other things, that he is a team member. He wanted his own team, people he trusts, with experience and expertise. He didn’t just want to drive Trump’s clown car. One report said he wound up considering the job a “shit sandwich.”

    In short, he was willing — if he could do the job right. Listening to Trump, he felt he couldn’t do it right. So he went all Johnny Paycheck on the president.

    His balking is going to resonate in the military, especially in the Special Operations community. Harward is known and respected in Spec Ops, and the fact that he looked the president in the eye and found him wanting will give a lot of people pause. Trump hasn’t attacked the military as he has the intelligence people, but this could be the beginning of some wariness.

            To stop the dismantling will be difficult. To slow their roll is an achievable goal.

      • Miranda

        Here’s hoping EPA staffers or somebody in intel will find something – ANYTHING – that is serious enough that it causes him to have to step down. Otherwise, he is going to wreck the place – I expect a great purge of top level employees beginning Monday.

    Oh but I thought Trump claimed he was making Ford keep all of these job in the US? No?
    ———————–
    Despite Trump, Ford moves ahead with plans for Mexico plants
    February 17, 2017: 1:39 PM ET

    Ford Mexico CEO Gabriel Lopez said at a company event in Mexico City Thursday that it’s going ahead with plans to expand two of its plants — an engine plant in Chihuahua and a transmission plant in Irapuato.

    These plans aren’t new — they were first announced in 2015. But they may seem at odds with all the recent buzz about U.S. automakers bringing jobs back to the U.S., particularly Ford, amid pressure from Trump.

    Ford got a lot of attention last month when it dropped its plans to build a $1.6 billion assembly plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. But the small car production originally planned for the discontinued San Luis Potosi plant is shifting to an existing Ford Mexican assembly plant, not returning to the U.S.

    Ford (F) never claimed to be bringing work back, but onlookers could be forgiven for getting confused. On that same day, Ford announced plans for a $700 million investment and 700 new jobs to build electric and self-driving cars at a Michigan plant.
    Fields said the investment was a “vote of confidence” in the incoming Trump administration. But that production was never supposed to go to Mexico.

    So presidential historians have come up with their president survey for 2017 and President Obama is listed as number 12. Pretty impressive for a president who just left office to be close to the top ten and ranked that high already. President’s like Truman and Ike moved up in ranking over time and after more evaluation of their presidencies in a larger context. It will be interesting to see these surveys as time goes on, but I do believe that the Trump presidency train wreck is making Obama look even better.

    • edp4bho

      No doubt this is the caucasion perspective. As it relates to black folks, I’ll pass on this survey, and decide that he is among about 2 or 3 who were good for this AA female here. IMO, he’s number one.

      • jziglar

        Yeah we all know the ranking would be even higher if black people were doing the ranking. But still it’s impressive that presidential historians ranked Obama close to the top ten and he’s only been out of office less than a month. Most presidents in modern times didn’t rank that high after leaving office. It usually took time for some to move up in ranking. Most likely he will be in the top ten quicker than some others.

        • edp4bho

          True.

    • MsKitty

      And it’s worth noting that PBO is helped by being sandwiched in between 2 presidents that will be at the bottom at the list when all is said and done (though GWB’s stock has risen a teensy bit since Trump is so godawful).

      • jziglar

        Yeah GWB has improved very slightly but he will always be ranked near the bottom due to his disastrous second term with Katrina, Iraq war debacle, and the financial crisis. What’s amazing is how Trump is making his predecessors look better in less than a month’s time. God only knows how bad it will be in a year.

    • Admiral_Komack

      I would have ranked Barack Obama #9 and Lyndon Johnson #10 (I think Vietnam would have dragged LBJ down somewhat).
      Wilson and Reagan would NOT be in the top 10 IF I had my say.

      “Trump hasn’t committed any act yet that even remotely rises to the high bar of impeachment offenses. ”

      I disagree and investigations should prove otherwise. But Pence is a horror story all by himself. Heard this morning that he consistently refused to grant a pardon for a black man who was proven to be innocent. The man has since been exonerated by the current Governor. Pence is the personification of evil.

    Furious caller hilariously flops after radio host asks him to name just one media lie about Trump

    Radio host James O’Brien of LBC (Leading Britain’s Conversation) Radio completely stumped an angry caller on Friday by asking him to name one falsehood that the press has propagated against Pres. Donald Trump.

    This whole Obama shadow government BS some on right are pushing is just them going through Obama derangement withdrawal and it’s laughable. Also they need to come up with an excuse for Trump being a train wreck. And blaming Barack Obama, or Hillary Clinton, or George Soros, or Hollywood, etc. is their favorite pastime since they refuse to own up to their own failures.

    – – —House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz
    (R-Utah) is working on legislation to require future presidential candidates to release the results of an independent physical exam.

    The measure, which isn’t finalized, would mandate the major-party
    presidential candidates to undergo a physical exam by a Navy doctor and release the results to the public. Recent remarks from Chaffetz before The Washington Post editorial board left fellow lawmakers with the impression that the legislation would specifically include a requirement that presidential candidates undergo a mental health exam.

    “If you’re going to have your hands on the nuclear codes, you should probably know what kind of mental state you’re in,” Chaffetz said.

    Trump yells at CIA director over reports intel officials are keeping info from him
    February 17, 2017, 5:28 PM

    CBS News has learned that on Thursday, an angry President Trump called CIA Director Mike Pompeo and yelled at him for not pushing back hard enough against reports that the intelligence community was withholding information from the commander-in-chief.

    The agency then drafted a strongly worded statement rebutting the claim. “We are not aware of any instance when that has occurred,” read Pompeo’s statement. “It is CIA’s mission to provide the President with the best intelligence possible and to explain the basis for that intelligence. The CIA does not, has not, and will never hide intelligence from the President, period.”

    DeVos: Critics want to ‘make my life a living hell’
    February 17 at 9:20 AM 

    In her first full week as U.S. education secretary, Betsy DeVos wasted no time in getting to work to try to explain her vision for education and the U.S. Education Department — and to go after her critics, saying they want to make her life “a living hell.” She also said she has identified people in the department who want her to fail, but vowed not to let them.
    […]
    In a speech and several interviews, DeVos made clear that she is planning to push the expansion of school choice — charter schools, voucher programs and other alternatives to traditional public schools.

    In an interview with Axios, excerpts of which were published on Feb. 17, she said:
    “I expect there will be more public charter schools. I expect there will be more private schools. I expect there will be more virtual schools. I expect there will be more schools of any kind that haven’t even been invented yet.”

    The one thing she said she didn’t expect more of was traditional public schools.

    As far as the role of the federal government in education, she said:
    “I think in some of the areas around protecting students and ensuring safe environments for them, there is a role to play. … I mean, when we had segregated schools and when we had a time when, you know, girls weren’t allowed to have the same kind of sports teams — I mean, there have been important inflection points for the federal government to get involved.”

    But when asked whether there are any other issues in which the federal government should intervene, she said: “I can’t think of any now.” As to whether the Education Department should be eliminated, she said:
    “It would be fine with me to have myself worked out of a job, but I’m not sure that — I’m not sure that there will be a champion movement in Congress to do that.”

    In an interview with conservative columnist Cal Thomas published on Feb. 16, the Michigan billionaire blasted protesters for the second time in the same week, saying they are “sponsored and very carefully planned” and not “genuine protests.”

    • Alma98

      He we go with the white woman tears routine. She tried to clean up that segregation comment. Bitch you ain’t slick, your intention is to make sure black kids and kids of color get no education. They want us back in churches and shacks teaching our kids.

      • Aquagranny911

        Hola Alma! Maybe that is not such a bad thing that we teach our own kiddos. What I have been seeing lately is not good for POC. I went to a small rural Catholic school that probably would qualify as a “shack” today but we got an excellent education. Maybe we didn’t have much & we sometimes shared books & other materials & maybe the teaching nuns were sometimes mean but we learned! We got a basic foundation that I am still grateful for today.

    — – –Kyla McMullen, CSE MSE 2007, PhD 2012, has become the first African American woman at the University of Michigan to graduate with a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering. She is now an Assistant Professor at Clemson University’s School of Computing, where her primary research interests lie in rendering spatial audio virtually to enhance virtual environments and to sonify information sources.

    McMullen’s doctoral work in the Interactive Systems group at the
    University of Michigan involved assessing the individualization of
    rendering virtual sounds over headphones. Once that was resolved, she
    studied how listeners could be trained locate and remember these
    virtual sounds as they “walked” through the virtual environment. Her
    dissertation was entitled,”Interface Design Implications for Recalling the Spatial Configuration of Virtual Auditory Environments.”
