Death by taxes

Bryce Harper signed with the Philadelphia Phillies today.
The San Francisco Giants made a big offer as well.
But thanks to California taxes, Harper gets more take-home pay in Pennsylvania.
Yes, Democrats, people make decisions based on high taxes.
They avoid them.

Slow boat to anywhere

Via Instapundit, what it would take to replace diesel container ships with electric.
Technology we definitely don't have.
The conclusion is obvious. To have an electric ship whose batteries and motors weighed no more than the fuel (about 5,000 metric tons) and the diesel engine (about 2,000 metric tons) in today’s large container vessels, we would need batteries with an energy density more than 10 times as high as today’s best Li-ion units.
That’s a tall order indeed: In the past 70 years the energy density of the best commercial batteries hasn’t even quadrupled.

It's a cotton-picking shame

Virginia first lady Pamela Northam is in trouble - for giving a teenager a piece of cotton.
Virginian first lady Pamela Northam gave cotton to black students and asked them to imagine being enslaved during a tour of the governor’s mansion — and one of the children’s parents complained in a letter to lawmakers.
The Washington Post reported that Mrs. Northam, wife of embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, made the offensive action last week in the midst of the controversy surrounding the governor’s yearbook page featuring a person in blackface.
The Northam family has two more years of this kind of scrutiny in Richmond - unless they decide it's time to head home.

For the history books

When historians remember this week in the future, what will top their lists?

  • President Trump's summit with North Korean's leader.
  • What the House is doing
  • Michael Cohen testifying to Congress.

I think Trump's trip will trump what's going on in Washington.

Lessons learned

Via Scott Adams' Twitter feed, the story of a man who made it out of the projects.
He learned five vital lessons, including how to keep a cool head in tough situations.
While a guy might not have a gun, he might not care about catching an aggravated assault charge to defend his honor. (This is assuming you call the cops, which everyone in the ghetto avoids: it just increases the likelihood of retaliation.)
Since I didn’t know who cared about staying out of jail, I just addressed everyone with basic respect.

Suspect interview

Andrew McCarthy looks at the Andrew McCabe interview and what was missing.
We know that what Trump wanted made public was something very specific about Russia, namely, that Comey repeatedly told the president he was not a suspect in the Russia investigation. Trump was frustrated — over time, ballistic — over the fact that Comey was privately telling him that he was not under investigation, yet making statements that would lead the public to believe Trump was suspected of conspiring in Russia’s hacking operations. Trump wanted Comey to state publicly that he was not a suspect; Comey’s refusal to do so made no sense to the president, especially after Comey gratuitously implied, in his stunning March 2017 House testimony, that Trump was a suspect.
Lots of suspects in this group.

Male it in

How do I know President Trump will win reelection?
Democrats will convince enough people their choice must meet a quota - and white males need not apply.
Still, the straight white men—including Biden and Sanders—are not being irrational by hesitating. Yes, they are risking a loss of media buzz, A-list staff and access to donor networks by allowing others get a head start. But they have good reason to tread carefully. Issues pertaining to race and gender are bound to be prominent in the campaign, and white men do not exactly have the best track record of dealing with them.

Winning formula

With each candidate jumping into the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, the odds go up for President Trump winning in 2020.
They just have to keep talking.
There’s ample room to criticize the way Trump has handled immigration and shoved all his chips into the center of the table for his wall, but some of the Democrats’ rhetoric about immigration — the need to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement, for example — hasn’t made them appear like a reasonable alternative.
A host of other story lines, largely ignored or downplayed by the mainstream media, have caught the attention of conservatives nonetheless, from increasingly open hostility to Catholic judicial nominees to greater tolerance for anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Ten years to go

Apparently, we only have 10 years to solve climate change before it's too late.
The good news - Democrats have ideas to solve it.
The bad news - it will take bureaucrats at least 12 years to approve construction on any of their solutions.

Willie sees the problem

Former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown may be a Democrat - and former squeeze for Kamala Harris - but he sees straight after watching President Trump's State of the Union speech
No matter what you think of Trump’s message, his delivery was impressive. He stayed on script and kept referring to everyday heroes in the gallery, thus forcing the Democrats to stand and cheer.
It was populist theater, where presence and impression trump content.
And the overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite. 

What Trump did Wednesday

Salena Zito has the story of a class from Webster County, West Virginia getting an unexpected call from President Trump.
Senator Joe Manchin was chatting with the students when he found out President Trump wanted to talk. Manchin advised what he was doing, and Trump wanted to join in.
“So, I pick up the phone and his assistant Madeline says, ‘The president wants to talk to you, Joe.’ And I said, ‘OK, Madeline. I'm on a call. Let me just tell these kids I'm gonna put them on hold for a little bit. Just a second, I won't tell them anything,’” Manchin explained.
He tells the kids he needs to put them on pause for a few minutes and from their vantage point, Stout and Williams explained all they saw was a black screen. A few moments later, Manchin comes back and tells the students he has “a little surprise for you.”
Manchin put the phone on speaker, and the president starts to chat with the kids.

Look at what we're doing for the state - don't throw it all away.
And comparing Northam and Herring's blackface outings.
Did Herring's announcement turn out better because his offense was lesser, or because he watched Northam and corrected his mistakes?

Causing trouble and how

The Democrats ticket for 2020 should be Ralph Northam and Elizabeth Warren.
One dressed in blackface and the other pretending to be an Indian.

Fair facts

Ralph Northam is still governor.
Justin Fairfax is still lieutenant governor.
Friday night, did you think that would still be the lineup on Tuesday.
And probably for many more days to come.

The Post comes through

A cheer for the Washington Post Monday- after Justin Fairfax tried to use them to show that a sexual assault allegation had been disproved.
Fairfax and the woman told different versions of what happened in the hotel room with no one else present. The Washington Post could not find anyone who could corroborate either version. The Post did not find “significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegations,” as the Fairfax statement incorrectly said. . .
The 3 a.m. statement dies in the light.

Check the yearbooks

Do you still have your high school or college yearbooks?
I know the industry is faded for the current generation - neither of my sons have a high school yearbook covering the past eight years.
They've got enough pictures of themselves out there on social media.
But we didn't have social media in the 70s, 80s and 90s.
The prime years for current candidates for public office.
Thanks to Governor Northam, yearbooks are back in the news.

Is there any forgiveness?

Governor Northam tried to explain things Saturday.
His fellow Democrats aren't listening.
They want him gone.
Northam really appeared to be blindsided Friday.
While commentators were suggesting he had probably been hiding this picture for 35 years, it appears he didn't know about it.
He didn't buy the yearbook and didn't see it.
If it a believable defense?
But if it's the truth, why would Northam resign when he was the innocent victim?
The picture appeared on his page, but he had nothing to do with it.
The fight continues - for who knows how long.

Saturday, February 2, 2019

It ain't me

Governor Northam plans to fight on.
The pictures you saw Friday weren't him.
Who are they?
Why are they on his page?
Why didn't he buy the yearbook?
Why didn't any of his classmates tell him about it over the years?
Lots of questions still remaining.
