    This time, we will not be silent on Iran

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/this-time-we-will-not-be-silent-on-iran/2018/01/03/d1cfc34e-f0cc-11e7-97bf-bba379b809ab_story.html?utm_term=.ad4a8ba4e537

    Mike Pence is vice president of the United States.

    Eight-and-a-half years ago, Americans watched the people of Iran rise up to claim their birthright of freedom. In the β€œGreen Revolution,” millions of courageous young men and women filled the streets of Tehran and Tabriz, Qazvin and Karaj, and what seemed like every city and village in between. They denounced a fraudulent election, and as the days went on, they began to demand that the unelected ayatollahs end their decades of repression and release their iron-fisted grip on Iran and her people.

    Months before the protests started in Iran, the president predicted that the days of the Iranian regime were numbered. Speaking at the United Nations in September, he said, β€œThe good people of Iran want change, and, other than the vast military power of the United States, Iran’s people are what their leaders fear the most.” Much like another president who made similar predictions about the Soviet Union, the president was mocked.

    There is no way Vice President Pence penned this without knowing the outcome of the Iranian protests. Regime change.

    Remember he name Maryam Rajavi. I think we will be seeing a lot of her in the future.

    • My folks woke up this morning in central FL, it was 30 degrees. They had to activate the emergency heater (I don’t know what the heck it’s called) in the heat pump, which involves lots more electricity and heating coils. It’s the first time they’ve ever had to do that.

      We’re getting 18 inches today in South Haven. On top of the two feet we already have.

      I wish I had a pair of cross-country skis. And the boots. And poles.

      I did many years ago. I haven’t seen this much snow since I was a kid.

        I haven’t seen that much snow in my life, if you take out my visit to Alaska last year.

        I did see more snow than I ever thought I would though. In a place where a couple of inches shuts the world down, it snowed a foot in January 1988, and two feet in March of 93, a blizzard which crippled the south for weeks and caused tremendous damage, and I am guessing, some lives lost.

        We were without power for days, and literally took a trip back a century, sleeping in front of the fire, with blankets nailed up around the room, and cooking on the grill and in the fireplace. Everyone missed work for a week or more.

        I was in a small town just outside Minneapolis years ago when it dumped 3 feet of snow overnight, with winds that created 6 foot drifts. Even the snow plows couldn’t get out for a while, and Minneapolis ran on snowmobiles for a few days, getting pregnant women to the hospital and such.
        I had a great time playing with the kids digging snow tunnels in the drifts. πŸ™‚
        My car parked in the driveway of the home I was visiting wouldn’t start. When I opened the hood, I discovered the wind had packed the entire engine compartment full of snow!

      As a former Floridian (Miami & Tampa) I absolutely identify with both. In the mid 70’s I lived in a beautiful apartment building from the 30’s in Coral Gables, with jalosie windows (read no insulation between the panes) on three sides. No heat of any kind. On cold nights I dressed in my clothes for the next morning, put every warm thing on the bed, invited the two cats under the covers & crawled in. Next morning, I took my coat out of the pile on the bed & went downstairs to my car, which had heat. Hurricanes, no problem!

    Fun in the new international market.
    Late last nite I ordered, on line from a big box store, a mattress for my new GS’s crib along with a bedding set. Simple you’d say, just point, aim and click. Normally it would be but it was me and the gods were bored.
    I use a wifi connection on my laptop and the store’s ordering site, which has more going on than a Bollywood musical, picks up the satellite’s downlink site as my location and not where I’m at. The bedding was available and shipped directly to my son’s house but the mattress had to go to his local big box location. I was on their baby registry site and one would think that when the order site said ‘ship to local store’ it would go to the store their registry is at. At least I did – wrong. As I noted the order recap I saw the mattress was being shipped to the satellite downlink location – Houston, TX – and not their hometown – Denver. NO SWEAT! Just call big box customer service…so I did. Only thing was that their service site is India and the ‘A’ team wasn’t on for late nite US callers.
    After the nice woman in India adjusted her headset to where we could actually hear one another I explained my problem and she offered her cure: we just drive to Houston to pick it up. I asked if she were familiar with US geography and she said “no”, so I explained that it’s some 2000 kilometers (I do on-the-fly conversions) from Denver to Houston, a bit too far for a drive. A moment of silence…”so are you saying you won’t be picking it up, sir?”. I avoided one of my usual replies. Ahhhhhhh, the joys of the global market.

      Augghh! Insert picture of Charlie Brown falling as Lucy pulls football away! I just cancelled an order I was going to place online because, like you, when I called customer “service” I was connected to a woman (in Mexico?) who could not understand either English, or was intelligent enough to understand my question about the website. What is depressing is that this company had previously employed people in PA I think. So I went out and purchased items from a store somewhat of a distance away, also on sale (after season clearances are when I do 90% of my shopping). If I need to give something to people far away, or like the last wedding shower (set of heavy cast iron cookware I could not lift), I give a gift card I pick up from the nearest food or drugstore, and a pic of what it’s for. Then they can take the cash card, and buy it themselves.

    Seen on Facebook (please excuse the coarse language):

    A little old lady from Wisconsin had worked in and around her family dairy farms since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work and little compensation.

    When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores in the 1940s, she read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan.

    The producers wanted a rhyme beginning With …….”’Carnation Milk is best of all………’”

    She thought to herself; I know everything there is to know about milk and dairy farms. I can do this! She sent in her entry, and several weeks later, a black car pulled up in front of her house. A large man got out, knocked on her door and said,

    “Ma’am,…..The president of Carnation milk absolutely LOVED your
    Entry……So much, in fact, that we are here to award you $1,000 even though we will not be able to use it for our advertisements!”
    He did, however, have one printed up to hang on his office wall.

      She’s right. I know because I grew up on a farm where we just had two cows – for our own milk/cream/butter needs. Involved all of what she says and more. One of my jobs was to wash the separator every morning (for city folks – – that’s a wonderful floorstanding contraption with a large open tank on top where the milk is poured in, and then it easily separated the cream from the milk whilst the big handle was being manually turned…. which is why we had ice-blue skim milk and thickthickthick yellow cream all the time……it used the simple principle of centrifugal force, 27 thin metal disks, and two funnels to do that…). And it had to be washed every day after the separating process, except in the winter when the basement stayed cold enough that the remainders of the thick cream wouldn’t start stinking within 24 hours, as it would in the summer time. In winter, it was washed every other day. Then my mother did it because I was at school.

      I’m sorry Carnation didn’t feel they could use the slogan. Would’ve upped their sales amongst the country folk who understood.

      Speaking of understanding – I’ll never forget what the Home Ec teacher went through – who came to Culbertson, Montana to teach Home Ec (to country kids??? right there’s a problem with assumptions on the part of whoever hired these people….)…..anyway, yes indeed, Betty came to the small country town. Turns out she didn’t know where eggs came from.

      Oh, dear.

      Fortunately, the small town kids and the country kids were knew what their parents would do with them and to them if they were rude about how they used this information about the new Home Ec teaher. It was all kept very, very quiet, but the news traveled through the student body (about 250 in grades 1-12 combined) quickly.

        Our neighbors had cows when I was in grade school, and my brother later had a dairy farm in California. I am familiar with the cow thing. I don’t think our neighbors had a separator, but I could be wrong. I remember the milk cans on their covered back porch. The most fun on that farm were the pigs – they would get out and invade the suburban-type street nearby (it was a changing neighborhood after the war). I remember my mother helping to round them up.

    Morning everyone! πŸ™‚
    Here is another sunny one for a drab, gray day! Sunflowers is the name of two series of still life paintings by the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. The first series, executed in Paris in 1887, depicts the flowers lying on the ground, while the second set, executed a year later in Arles, shows a bouquet of sunflowers in a vase. If you go to https://www.vangoghmuseum.nl/en/collection/s0031V1962 you can see an amazing close-up of the brushwork in this painting.

    Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853 –1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In just over a decade he created about 2,100 artworks, most of them in the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterised by bold colours and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. Van Gogh was unsuccessful during his lifetime, and was considered a madman and a failure. He exists in the public imagination as the quintessential misunderstood genius. His reputation began to grow in the early 20th century. He attained widespread critical, commercial and popular success over the ensuing decades, and is remembered as an important but tragic painter.
    I could have put more detail into his bio, but I’m trying to keep it light πŸ˜‰
    I’m going to be dealing with snow etc. most of the day, so have a safe and happy day! I’ll have to try and catch up on yesterday and today later in the day πŸ™‚

      Thank you again for your postings of visual art work with thumbnail bio & historical info. When I visit a city I almost always include an art museum; if you or someone like you wrote a commentary next to every piece, I would be extremely satisfied. Best day ever was in 2001 visiting my brother ( who has a strong visual arts background) in NYC. We did 3 museums focusing on old masters, impressionists & European renaissance. He showed me how the artists made the brush strokes, a created light and dark, and balanced colors.

I was just saying to DH the other day, that when I’m too old to do anything else, just put me in front of a computer where I can research art! I have at times without realizing it, spent hours doing just that! (insomnia). I have never been to NYC, but would love to go to the museums there. Detroit, before it was destroyed, and San Francisco as well, were 2 cities I would have loved to have seen, not only for the museums, but the architecture as well.

      Beautiful, I love, love, love van Gogh. We went to the Art Institute of Chicago a couple of years ago while it had a van Gogh exhibit. Part of the exhibit was a to scale reproduction of van Gogh’s bedroom set made famous by his painting.

      The bedroom was so small, the bed so small it just spoke to the loneliness of his life so my daughter and I just sat there crying for a while.

        That is really, really interesting! I wonder how many other paintings you could do that with? Yes, his life is also very sad. From early on it seemed like he was always somewhat lost and searching for something. He could not relate well to other people, had mental health problems, and sold only 1 painting before his death: Red Vineyard at Arles. Executed on a privately primed Toile de 30 piece of burlap in early November 1888.

        I’ve read a few long multi-page articles on his life on various art websites, and the Van Gogh museum. I wonder how much of his (and other) artists problems stemmed from, or were worsened by the toxic paints etc.
        The Art Institute of Chicago is also somewhere I would have liked to have seen. I have been lucky enough to be within reasonable distance of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Isabella Stewart Gardner, and actually another good museum in Manchester, NH with some impressive first rate paintings.

    Like others here, I will be captive inside today – wind gusts to 48 knots (!) blowing around white stuff is a great reason to make some beef soup with roast beast bones left over from Christmas. I generally add a little bit of acidic somethin’ somethin’ to the stock – supposedly it helps leach bony goodness into the broth and today tomato paste was going to fill that role.

    When I originally read about this trick, it was one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” moments, so I thought perhaps some of you might like it as well.

    Buy large cans of tomato paste and, using a 1 Tablespoon portion scoop, put ‘buttons’ of tomato paste on a parchment/wax paper lined cookie sheet. Freeze, uncovered, until the buttons are frozen and then plop them into a freezer bag. When you need tomato paste, voila! One tablespoon portions ready to come out of the freezer and into your recipe.

  15. I had my phone interview yesterday. The station is doing more phone interviews and then we’ll see who makes it into the second round.

    I hate telling how interviews went because 9 times out of 10, I’m wrong, but I did feel good when this interview was done. I don’t know what the station thought on their end, but I rather liked playing offense in an interview, rather than defense. I was in my element for a change, and it felt good.

    Temp agency called and left a message for me today. I wish they’d stop leaving messages to say “please call back” and instead just tell me what’s going on.

    As for the job they sent me to interview for, I don’t know what scares me most: getting that job, or not getting that job.

      I sure hope it’s true. Went to the FOIA site and did a search on the term “Marina” (HRC’s maid)

      There’s a lot to be suspicious of. Take a look at just two email headers:

      From: Abedin, Huma
      Sent: Monday, June 8, 2009 7:1 1 AM
      To: humamabedin [redacted B6]
      Subject: Marina print 3

      Sent: Thursday, June 23, 2011 1:50 AM
      To: ‘humamabedin [redacted B6]
      Subject: Marina, print and give her. Important.
      Attachments: S Q and A on Libya War Powers.doc
      Importance: High

      So Huma sends an email to herself but the subject line directs Marina to print the information????

      That could mean a couple of things. Either they shared an email account and Marina saw everything that came through, or Huma ‘gave’ the account to Marina to avoid FOIA snooping, or some other easily attributable scheme. And Huma wasn’t the only one sending information to Marina for printing.

      Marina printed a new draft of your testimony. She will have it with your clips

      How did Monica know that Marina had printed a new draft? Was there a phone call? Was there an email? Was it a vast right wing conspiracy?

      Any one of us would already be in jail for this BS.

      Here’s another one that will increase your blood pressure exponentially:
      Case # F-2014-20439
      Document # C05796339

      The Secretary’s Call Sheet for Darrell Issa, Chairman, HOGR (House Oversight)

      Access to the entire meat of the paper is ‘denied’. However, the last ’email’ is from Hillary to Huma. The email address Hillary in the ‘to’ field is the same one that Huma uses when she’s really writing to Marina.

      Based on the dates, this is probably HRCs testimony about Benghazi…..and the maid printed it out. SMH.

      I think the real secret is that it was never closed, even by Loretta, I’ll bet she was so lazy and arrogant she did nothing whatsoever after Comey’s little ode to Hillary.

      “She is just so dumb,
      Drinks too much rum,
      She is not smart,
      Please have a heart,
      She didn’t mean to do it,
      And Putin hates Hilary,
      So don’t think ill of me,
      As no prosecutor who loves his life,
      Would cause Hillary a moment of strife,
      As she would surely kill him.”
      ___James Comey

      Jeff Sessions is under no obligation to tell the general public about an active investigation especially if the “folks of interest” are still actively committing crimes in connection with the crime being investigated.

      Remember back when so many people were complaining about the Twin Peaks bikers all getting arrested and I kept saying two things 1) LE knew what was happening before the gathering and 2) likely a long going investigation was taking place. Then boom! that is exactly what was happening. I think the investigation was almost two years old when the Twin Peaks incident took place.

      Clinton faces the same problem only on a much deeper scale. Clinton/Obama did not plan for a Trump victory, not even for a nano-second so they did what they could in the 60 odd days until President Trump’s inauguration but the sheer breadth of their crimes can not be wiped away. And you can bet that each department had people keeping files against Obama and Clinton. They are not warm people. They are not liked. They are users and they are used. And now they are on a slow march to the gallows.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

      comment from above article- Gee β€’ an hour ago
      Since he is too stupid to understand a two-year old, I challenge him on being sentient. He is obviously not, so we can kill him.

      2012 – In the Journal of Medical Ethics, two ethicists argue plainly for the killing of babies post birth. They’re not hedging their bets. They’re saying it plain and simple. Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, associated respectively with Monash University, in Melbourne, Australia, and with the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, in the UK, wrote a piece called β€œAfter-birth abortion: why should the baby live?”

      I did a web search on “british australian professor thinks it’s ok to kill babies and toddlers”, and saw the evil that popped up.

    Dow closes above 25,000, extending milestone-breaking run for blue-chip stock index
    Adam Shell in USA Today

    β€œThe milestone-busting Dow has done it again,” USA Today reports on the record-setting close of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which today closed above 25,000 for the first time in its history.

    β€œRising stock prices have been powered by a global economic recovery and optimism that the Republican tax-cut bill will provide a fresh boost for U.S. growth and help American companies make more money,” Adam Shell writes. β€œDow 25K is just another milestone, not the top,” adds Brian Belski, the chief investment strategist at BMO Capital Markets.

    Paul Bedard in Washington Examiner writes that more than 100 companies are giving β€œTrump bonuses” after the Republicans’ historic tax victory. β€œThere is a broad and deep tsunami building,” John Kartch of Americans for Tax Reform tells the paper, as businesses across the country look to raise wages, increase charitable giving, and extend bonuses.

    CNBC reports that job-cut announcements in 2017 hit their lowest mark since 1990β€”20 percent below 2016’s number, according to a report from Challenger, Gray & Christmas. β€œLast month saw 7.4 percent fewer job-cut announcements than November,” CNBC’s Chloe Aiello writes.

    Vice President Mike Pence writes in The Washington Post that the United States will not be silent when it comes to standing with the people of Iran as they protest their country’s oppressive government. Axios reports that the U.S. Treasury Department issued strong new sanctions today on the Iranian regime.

    In the New York Post, Rich Lowry argues that β€œif there’s any aspect of the Trump immigration agenda that should command universal support, it’s his crackdown on [MS-13], an immigrant gang whose motto is β€˜murder, rape and control,’ and whose signature weapon is the machete.”
