"For a guy who complains that the media only quotes 'half-sentences,' Trump's real adversary is the full-length transcript. These aren't speeches, they're seizures."

It will be LED lights next, and how he knows more about them than anyone else.

Slightly OT, but the one big takeaway I had from reading Omarossa's book was that even during the campaign through presidency (as far as she got), was that when he came out of the gate with stupid :shit:, they had to scramble like crazy to put some air of believability to it.

I had toyed with making a similar comment. Thanks for stepping in :boxing:

Do we have data on how many birds have died over the centuries that windmills have been in existence?

There are quite a lot of articles about the modern type of turbines, based on the blades being much thinner and faster than the Old Mill kind.

for example

IIRC there have been problems reported over wind turbines getting built in traditional bird migration paths. Twice a year there would be a certain number of casualities due to the technology.

The number of birds killed by windmills/turbines in North America is likely many orders of magnitude smaller than the number taken by house cats.

A far left magazine, or very “progressive,” as some would call it, which has been doing poorly and hasn’t been involved with the Billy Graham family for many years, Christianity Today, knows nothing about reading a perfect transcript of a routine phone call and would rather.....

...have a Radical Left nonbeliever, who wants to take your religion & your guns, than Donald Trump as your President. No President has done more for the Evangelical community, and it’s not even close. You’ll not get anything from those Dems on stage. I won’t be reading ET again!
Somebody's reading it.
Mark Galli, the editor in chief of Christianity Today who authored the op-ed, acknowledged to MSNBC on Sunday that the magazine has lost subscribers, but he said there has also been an outpouring of support.

“A stereotypical response is ‘thank you, thank you, thank you’ with a string of a hundred exclamation points — ‘you’ve said what I’ve been thinking but haven’t been able to articulate, I’m not crazy,‘” Galli said of the response from supporters. “We have lost subscribers but we’ve had 3 times as many people start to subscribe.“

More of the Christian press jumping off the Trump bandwagon.

@NappNazworth
Announcement: Today, rather abruptly, I was forced to make the difficult choice to leave The Christian Post. They decided to publish an editorial that positions them on Team Trump. I can't be an editor for a publication with that editorial voice. ...

I'm saddened by what happened for many reasons. I've been with CP for over 8.5 years, made many friendships, and had lots of exciting opportunities along the way. ...

As long as I was with the company, they strived to be a place that represented the diversity of evangelicalism in the US. I even wrote about this diversity in the last published article I wrote on Sunday. ...

When the editors had disagreements, we would work through them, letting those discussions and debates inform and improve our coverage. Now, CP has chosen to go in a different direction. Like so many other media companies, they've chosen to silo themselves. ...

They've chosen to represent a narrow (and shrinking) slice of Christianity. That might be a good business decision, short term at least. But ...

... it's bad for Democracy, and bad for the Gospel. It means there will be one more place where readers can go for bias confirmation, but one less place where readers can go to exercise their brains on diversity of thought. {end}

I do not have the time to post Trump's bitching about the Do-Nothing-Dems, Impeachment and whatever. I thought this was strange.

Pollak's HLS law degree doesn't impress me any more than his awful beard or his ridiculous commentary.
"For completeness," Breitbart:
The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution explicitly states: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial.” Impeachment is not a criminal proceeding, but it would be difficult to argue that the president enjoys fewer rights than an ordinary criminal defendant.

Thank you to Franklin Graham for stating that his father, the late great Billy Graham, voted for me in the 2016 Election. I know how pleased you are with the work we have all done together!

FISA court was told about the FBI abuses in early 2018. It did nothing. It's disingenuous to only now act shocked and angry.
