The Morning Report 10/12/17

MichHarv.jpg

Good morning kids. Above the fold, the California wildfires are causing potentially as much pain and suffering and destruction as any hurricane. Please stay safe; material things are expendable. You and yours are not.

Still in the lead is the continuing fallout over the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal. There are all sorts of theories as to why this is happening, from the ridiculous - it's a way to bring back the mish-grabbing story as the means to bring down PDT, after which Harvey will have been rehabilitated/restored, to the semi-plausible - Harvey's pro-Israel stance conflicts with the NY Times' openly anti-Israel position (meh, Jews like Weinstein become anti-Semitic propaganda fodder) to the likely - his massive ego and profligate spending (much of which was to pay off victims) drained so much of his power and influence as to make him not just expendable, but a liability. The Clintons and the Obamas, the Left's figurehead leaders of record, are caught up in this shit-storm up to their necks. And in a related story in the links, top Democrat Senators continued to fund Bob Menendez even after his indictment for corruption. And lest we forget, he has been linked over and over again to sex with underage hookers as well as providing same to donors and cronies.

And Weinstein is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to show business' dirty open secret of sexual abuse against women, children and even men. Plus, as Ace alluded too last night in his great post, Hollywood provides the money and the relentless propaganda barrage against our history, culture and way of life so that something like this, if Democrat damage control doesn't work, can perhaps bring down or at least significantly neuter much of their influence on the people and critically the youth of our nation, already brainwashed for nearly 50 years. We will still have to deal with the root cause of the poisoning - the academia-agitprop complex, since everything in life is downstream from that - but this is turning into a gigantic story that could have far reaching implications, especially in light of the public's reaction/rejection of the NFL. If we can channel that reaction and tie what goes on with the anthem kneeling to what is going on in Hollywood both in front of and behind the camera, then that could be a titanic cultural shift in our favor. One that is desperately needed.

In other news, the President made an appearance in Pennsylvania where he pitched his tax plan as well as the continued fight to mitigate Obamacare's destruction if not get rid of it altogether to an enthusiastic blue collar audience. He even hinted at insurance across state lines which would be huge. I love the fact that he is not giving up in the face of a GOP-e that is openly vowing to thwart his agenda. And related to that, conservatives are openly calling for Mitch McCriminal to step down as leader while in the House, you'll be happy to know that nine congressfools are sponsoring a bump stock ban bill. With Republicans like these...

And this is why Steve Bannon is putting the heat on the party. And, no, he is not touting the "we-just-need-to-win-more-elections" as the cure-all. He is saying that after the elections, those we put in office have to fight the fight day in and day out and avoid being seduced by the McConnells and Ryans of this world. That I totally agree with and get. Somewhat related, Ben Sasse-hole is a jerk.

From hither and yon, Part 2 of James Okeefe's NY Times sting has dropped, there's an interesting piece about the even faster leftward descent of the Democrats and the Boy Scouts are now accepting girls. And we wonder about Harvey Weinstein. Sheesh.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

I thank Ace and the COBs for keeping this bastion of decent people alive and well.

18 Rs won roughly 1000 seats after Obama was elected, the greatest repudiation possible. So why do you get the feel reading NYT and watching CNN that Rs are some bizarre fringe group? Roughly 85% of Americans believe in God, but Christianity is always presented as a fringe cult. This is what happens when your enemies have gained control of the story telling mechanisms of the culture. Harvey's predilections were a widely known secret; but he was a dem, and dems control the narrative. In those businesses, being a hardcore supporter of progressive policies gets you a pass that would otherwise land you in jail.

32 I admire the faith and fortitude of Christians trying to sneak Bibles into North Korea, risking imprisonment and death in the process. The many Korean Christians originally from South Korea or some born here are more conservative than many of their mainstream Anglo church counterparts, and take both the Bible and prayer very, very seriously. That would be wonderful if there could be a huge Christian revival in North Korea-if would be one of the factors in freedom from dictatorship, I believe.

36 Speaking of ole Harv, there were multiple reports that he had flown off to Europe for some sort of sex 'rehab', and then yesterday there were reports that he was at his daughter's house in LA and she called the police because he was suicidal.

As the sleaze news oozes out about Hollyweird (which has always been sleazy, if you've read 1/10th of MP4's stories thereof), I wonder if finally the Republicans will finally develop some balls and go after their tax breaks and Hollywood accounting practices.

65 A couple of Weinstein thoughts that me get me booed out of here:

1. Will Weinstein be charged with sexual harassment and will he fight back in court? Will Paltrow and other big names who have accused him follow-through and agree to be questioned under oath in public court? Weinstein's lawyers will do what lawyers are often accused of in rape and sexual abuse cases: Try to put the accuser on trial. Plus, the evidence in most of the cases will be of the "she said, he said, with no other witnesses" variety. Any of the Horde lawyers have thoughts about how this plays out in the criminal courts?

2. I am sad to see Hollywood starting to erase Weinstein's producer credits. In other words, they are erasing history. No different than trying to erase the Confederacy and Christopher Columbus, in my opinion. Simply more virtue signalling by the Entertainment Wing of Progressives Worldwide, Inc.

88 Plus, as Ace alluded too last night in his great post, Hollywood provides the money and the relentless propaganda barrage against our history, culture and way of life so that something like this, if Democrat damage control doesn't work, can perhaps bring down or at least significantly neuter much of their influence on the people and critically the youth of our nation, already brainwashed for nearly 50 years.

Weinstein has been in show biz for several decades already. It will be virtually impossible to remove his name from the credits of his catalog of films. And to do so on future DVD releases of old movies already in stores would cost a fortune.

Rosenstein I suppose still has oversight on the Mueller witch hunt. Of course he has his own conflicts and assigned his old boss (I guess) knowing of those major conflicts, and now as Mueller digs into everything Trump for the last 20 years, Rosenstein "stands down" ... the favorite way for deep state to allow evil to occur by their henchmen.

If Sessions won't unrecuse, it seems someone could still replace Rosenstein, put someone above him or demote him. Put in Adams or someone that won't watch the coup continue apace.

The "stand down" thing ... that applies to Weinstein as well. They all accepted the above the law status, including very powerful politicians that had been helped into their kingdoms by Weinstein.

177 BSA started the slide by allowing homosexual scouts, then it was scout leaders (or was it the otehr way around?). Then last year it was trannies. Now girls who will have to be accommodated and catered to. Plenty of extra sensitivity and Don't Rape classes and endless new rules, proper conduct and guidelines because they didn't have enough of that already. This will destroy or transform BSA from something completely different that what it was..

http://preview.tinyurl.com/yajp8ppv

I don't think this is #fakenews.

The arrest of the security guard as an accomplice and second shooter means that the Vegas shooting absolutely is a conspiracy. ( The legal definition of "conspiracy" is when two or more people plan and execute an illegal act. )

The forensic sonic analysis that shows what is now a third shooter at a different location comes into even more significance.

I suspect ISIS claims are eventually going to be verified; they wouldn't be claiming to have Paddock's conversion video if they didn't really have it.

202 I'm a bit mystified about some of the reaction to Weinstein. These people bartered. He's gross, but these chicks knew exactly what they were doing.

The argument really goes back to the advisibility of legal prostitution. Historically, the arguments against it were disease, social decay, "pimping" of women who couldn't get out of it, etc. None of those apply to the starlets.

Weinstein gave them careers in exchange for sex and being demeaned by him. They accepted the deal. Is that abuse?

I contend these women acted in full knowledge and with full agency. They made a deal. In fact, he "taught them to fish." They got entire careers out of it instead of cash.

The original goal was 50,000. The need and the success has now moved the goal to 100,000. Please pray for protection and for the Word of God to get into the hands of the North Korean people.

206 a lot of powder residue on Campos' hands. wow ... that advances the Coulter idea from her article, which she says has no evidence, but they won't tell us anything. But the Campos angle and his story to the FBI being out of sync with facts indicates they are probing other sensitive leads, so need to keep it secret.

So IF Paddock made his millions dealing guns, some guy bribes Campos to open his door and he goes in and shoots Paddock, does the mass murder, escapes after ten minutes while no one yet in the hallway. That also "explains" why he quit after ten minutes, and why (allegedly) Paddock had gloves, so it would cover up why no powder residue on his hands. (but they surely checked his sleeves)

That probably didn't happen ... but another report says Paddock actually opened the door and told Campos to take cover before all the shooting down the hall. Will we ever know?

And the acoustics guy says definitely a second shooter a couple hundred yards closer. He didn't account for different types of rounds, but that maybe couldn't make THAT much difference, idk.

All the MFM knows is that white males are the problem, and gun confiscation is the only answer.

*****

As is often the case, the linked "article" has absolutely no details, little more than the headline. I am still waiting for someone to explain how a federal order (be it an EO or actual legislation) such as this will actually work. Are we going to eliminate 50 individual state insurance commissions? Are we going to nullify the state-by-state definitions of what is a minimally acceptable healthcare policy? Is there to be one federal standard (the Obamacare definitions of minimally acceptable plans or something else)?

And what insurance companies actually remain in a position to deal with such a bureaucratic mess?

I just don't see how this will fix anything. Maybe someone can help me out.

My understanding is this is an expansion of the arrangement that Rand Paul has been pushing. It will allow associations like trade groups, small business groups, etc. to band together and offer alternative buying groups to people anywhere in the country who qualify. Supposedly, these groups won't be bound by Obamacare rules.

The devil is in the details but this would seem to be a magnet for healthy people who want to avoid the onerous coverage requirements to buy scaled down plans, no mammogram coverage for 50 year old men for example. This could really hurt the public pool leaving less healthy people in the Obamacare pools.

Devil, as always, is in the details.

Of course it didn't and anyone who was paying attention before they elected that Marxist would have understood that.

They aren't "ashamed" of the country. They hate the west. They're anti-colonial global redistributionists. They despise Western Civilization because it gets in the way of the spread of global communism and because they think it exploited and oppressed brown people who would benefit by the spread of global redistributative collectivism (communism). That's why they hate Israel now because they see it as a colonial power and because it is a democracy.

None of these little marxists take the time to notice what communism actually does to "brown people" or to the poor. They're more interested in punishing "the rich" which in their view is anyone not living in a redistributative hovel and depenedent on the government. How has any system not the West and not capitalism worked for any country? It sucks. So much of Africa was better off being "exploited" than under their own aegis.

They will be sanitized, packaged and forcefully ejected from the house, like so many icky cooties, thereby purifying Hillary and absolving her of any connection to the guy.

245 >>>>As is often the case, the linked "article" has absolutely no details,
little more than the headline. I am still waiting for someone to
explain how a federal order (be it an EO or actual legislation) such as
this will actually work. Are we going to eliminate 50 individual state
insurance commissions? Are we going to nullify the state-by-state
definitions of what is a minimally acceptable healthcare policy? Is
there to be one federal standard (the Obamacare definitions of minimally
acceptable plans or something else)?



And what insurance companies actually remain in a position to deal with such a bureaucratic mess?



I just don't see how this will fix anything. Maybe someone can help me out.
.
.
.Well let's reverse engineer this thing. obamacare nullified all 50 States Health Insurance definitions of health insurance, so there is already precedence for that.

Then it mandated minimum coverage which only a few States like CA, NY and some others had, screwing over most of the people who had never been needed to obtain anything other than a catastrophic policy.

And finally, obamcare mandated that every single person in the Country must purchase health insurance, something that had never been done before and went totally beyond what any State law said.

So I am fairly confident that Trump can work around a few things and offer some sort of pool like they are talking about.

252 "He's gross, but these chicks knew exactly what they were doing. " dagny

that's very true, and hopefully the "nice girls" escape Hollywood and lead a decent life in some decent community.

But Tucker (or a guest) was explaining that the company itself was involved in "procuring" these young women, looking for a role. A female would set up the meeting and she would be there so the girl thought it was safe. Then the staffer exits stage right and the young woman is left alone with the wolf.

She probably still had a chance to run, but the coercion is still real. It is not exactly back alley rape (afaik) but the effect approaches the same end. The "power" difference between the two is huge, and the woman is made vulnerable, and the company itself seems to have participated. And we don't know what other threats are involved.

I recall drinking with a bunch of oil guys, some fairly high up, and talking about one worker I knew. She'd gotten some flowers from a married higher up, and I think there may have been more to it than that of course. Anyway ... not illegal, but he got reassigned to another city. The boss/worker thing is a large power differential, and most real companies have rules on that crap.

The rules/law are different of course, for powerful Democrats, but something is cracking.

262 On the Scouting issue, I sit on the committees of both a Pack and a Troop.

One of the things we are navigating are that the chartering organizations still apparently have a say. It's unclear what form the Troop integration will take, but if the chartering org doesn't want to have co-ed Troops then our read is that the BSA is not going to fight. On the other hand, if they are single-gender troops then a chartering organization is not required to charter at all.

The Cub Scouts is a little dicier - the plan is to have Packs integrated with single-sex dens. Again though, if the chartering organization doesn't want it to happen, my committee there is going to do what that organization wants. Ultimately they are the ones providing the physical space and the support for the Scouts.

One thing is certain - this is going to get pretty messy over the next two years.

*****

If it serves as a means for individuals in different states to form associations in order to purchase insurance at group rates I can see that helping those who don't get employer-sponsored insurance. But you still have the issue of different state insurance commissions. I suppose you could define a home state for the association and have the requirement for minimum coverage satisfy that state's rules. That would mean associations would seek out the state with the most favorable terms and effectively nullify the other 49 states.

Like I said, I haven't seen any details addressing this aspect of it.

I think, from what I've heard, he's going to change the definition of what is acceptable insurance.

Which is already part of O-care. Note how O-care itself did not require policies to cover abortion (the famous fig leaf for extinct Blue Dogs) but Mr. Pen-and-Phone was able to write regulations requiring such.

And O-care already preempts state insurance rules, AFAIK. That is, if it is acceptable under O-care, then the states must allow it to be sold.

Note how under O-care, many states were well on the way of only having one carrier.
I think that was a function of O-care not allowing policies--which were previously acceptable to that state--to be sold any longer.

Most of the women he attacked were young and new to the business. They weren't long time Hollywood vets.

This hurts any political aspirations she may have.

307 it was interesting to read seth macfarland's strong condemnation of weinstein (vis drudge). he's been running interference for clinton's predations on women for years through his "family guy" show. the acceptance of bill's sexual abuse and rape led to the culture of abuse that allowed weinstein, a powerful democrat, to act without fear of sanction.

Which kind of comes back to my original point. If there is a federal standard for what constitutes minimum acceptable coverage rather than 50 individual "laboratories of democracy", any advantage to selling insurance across state lines goes away. That argument only holds if there is an actuarial difference in the required coverage allowing a bigger selection of plans, menu pricing, various forms of catastrophic coverage, etc.

The state lines will have been effectively erased.

327 He even hinted at insurance across state lines which would be huge.
---
It really isn't.

What they're talking about is me in Cook County buying my insurance from a company in Indiana, which isn't going to be any cheaper because to offer me a policy in Illinois, they have to jump through all the same hoops as my (hypothetical) insurance company in Illinois does. The only place they can cut into is the company's profit which is a very minor part of the equation.

What would help is incentivizing me to go to a state where I can get the actual health care cheaper (like the famous for reasonable prices Oklahoma Surgery Center), though the best way to do that is to ban health insurance entirely so that we pay attention to raw health care costs ourselves. But that doesn't seem to be what anyone means by "across state lines".

I knew the class would be like this, and yet he had the grades to do AP and so wanted to take it. Prayers for my boy would be appreciated.

We go through this with our patients.

Our contracted pharmacies make deliveries to all our patients. Being in QA, I hear all the complaints from patients re: missing medications. These meds are more than BP, statins, etc. They are oxy, fentanyl, etc. The pharmacies hire the lowest common denominators who drop off deliveries to the wrong homes, leave the stuff sitting out on doorsteps, then it's stolen, etc.

It happens all the time. We've had multiple discussions over the years about whether or not cars and employees should be marked with our logo/name so that people watching do not know there are patients who are more than likely receiving powerful narcotics in the area.

I think the power differential matters for children. I think grown women should be expected to have some agency. Sometimes you even have to take a hit if you don't want what the guy is selling.

348 it doesn't seem "sell insurance across state lines" really solves the "must cover xyz and all pre-existing conditions thing". It might help some where the insurers all dropped out, but still expensive.

As Coulter says, it is still illegal to sell real insurance, where you pick what you want insured, and it is based solely on your personal risk status (age, smoker, weight, condition when start insurance, etc.)

You just can't throw someone into the "pool of insured in one healthy class" one who is an obese smoker that demands a knee transplant and a lung next month. (not to mention the illegals). That triples the rate for the healthy.

Those irresponsible people must get lower level care subsidized in a different system (which is already mostly Medicaid). If we move some into a better than Medicaid plan and get them to at least pay something and have a little of their own "skin in the game", fine. But that is not how real insurance works.

Obama planned to skyrocket rates (the way he planned to bring clean power, by skyrocketing electric rates ... all they know to do is destroy things). But Obama gave a $5000 tax increase to the middle class worker, to fund what? 10 million more on Medicaid, and a few including illegals on a hugely subsidized plan. Half the GOP is in on the scam and wants full government care.

281 I think there's room to both demonize Weinstein and acknowledge that these women created the opportunity for their abuse by choosing be in the entertainment industry. However, how far are will this 'the women knew what they were getting into' apply - does this apply to the female reporter, the female writers on Letterman's staff...is pursuing any role in entertainment considered an acceptance of casting couch behavior?

Screw Hollywood, they do not get a pass just because that's how it's always been done and these women should have known. They should be destroyed by the rules they helped establish via political contributions to Dems and Lefty causes, their own pussy-hat wearing activism, and their moralizing movies/tv shows. They're ALL to blame.


Posted by: Lizzy at October 12, 2017 08:52 AM (W+vEI)

The shame is that there are probably lots of young women who are as talented and lovely as anybody in Tinseltown and they don't go into acting or their careers are nipped in the bud because they're not willing to play the game.

If you had a beautiful, talented 18 year old daughter with ambitions of going to Hollywood and becoming famous, would you say "Oh, great, go for it!" knowing the scum that inhabit that pond?

I think to a certain extent that this problem is going to exist in any industry where you have powerful men and lots of good looking and ambitious women (and men). What is really galling is that these people, who would be willing to run over their grannies to get a good part in a movie, presume to lecture the rest of America and act like they're morally superior.

415 Actually it can lower premiums. Buying Insurance over State Lines will
allow "Associations" to negotiate a better price for their members
nationwide and leverage the greater number of participants
---
We (not you and I specifically) keep talking past each other when this topic comes up.

Yes, there is an argument to be made that all other things being equal, buying insurance across state lines will cause insurance premiums to be lower *than they otherwise would be* [roughly your point]. But it won't be by enough to really matter [my point].

If, picking numbers out of midair, my IL company is gouging me (or rather its entire customer base) for 20% more than it pays out, and IN company is content with 5% profits, and the rest of the industry is somewhere in the middle, I will be better off buying from IN company, so that my insurance cost is 105% of my expected health care cost rather than 120% [remember your premium is calculated by cost of conditions coverd times probability they will occur, plus company profit], which means I save 15/120 = 12.5% in the year I switch plans.

IN customers see no benefit as they're already getting the best available price. Other folks around the country would get some, but less benefit than me, though the way that would likely resolve is by their companies dropping their profits enough so that switching to IN company isn't worth the hassle.

In any case if the underlying health care costs continue to jump 20% - 50%, the improvement I get for switching, while it exists, won't lower me year to year, and doesn't help at all after that. Nothing matters until those underlying costs are addressed and that can only happen by diminishing demand (by reducing availability of insurance and making people pay out of pocket for the service like everything else) or increasing supply (more hospitals and magically more doctors-good luck).

NBC could always get a monetized youtube channel that would never be shut down no matter what they say. They could start giving speeches on their views like Berkeley or Evergreen, without being molested. Their offices will never experience anything like the DA ordered Wisconsin raids. In other words, they'd still be more able to exercise their first amendment rights than any conservative individual or group.

Very true and it's not always about sex. The stories of powerful people using underlings in abusive ways is as old as human nature.

Remember that movie The Devil Wears Prada? It exposed how awful powerful people in the fashion industry are to young hopefuls. But if you want to get into that industry you play along. You can find examples of this in pretty much every industry.

Think the problem is that while actresses and actors are prime targets, this is happening to others. Weinstein started harassing a temp receptionist on her first day, Weinstein was groping waitresses and lord knows who else, Letterman pressured his female writers to sleep with him in his sleazy secret office bedroom, etc. How many stories will come out now, such as the Terry Crews groping?

So, not just the beautiful people, not just the women who seek celebrity and stardom - happening to women (and men?) who want to write, costume, set design, work for a production company, and so on. I get that you have to know that the casting couch will be a requirement if you're an actor/actress, but I am disgusted that an entire industry should be allowed to be so deviant as to expect all women (and men?) to be treated like meat.

438 Scouting (both boys and girls) has always been co-ed in smaller communities until the kids get older. Nobody ever talked about it, but informal arrangements were always made. I had my girls in regular little kids baseball rather than softball because the training was better. The girls were resented sometimes because up until about 5th grade, the girls are more coordinated and stronger. Everything changes at puberty. Couldn't get my kids into scouting because I couldn't do the parent time requirements (single parent).

And his daughter, unlike Weinstein's victims, has Secret Service protection. That's not to say that she is never alone - but if old Perv came out of the shower naked and she screamed - gun-hating Harv would be looking at several pointed right at him in no time flat.

yes everyone knows that buying across state lines and allowing associations to flex their power thru numbers will not solve a whole host of problems, like pre-existing conditions ect...but it's a start. And a start is better than nothing.

454 "A female would set up the meeting and she would be there so the girl thought it was safe. Then the staffer exits stage right and the young woman is left alone with the wolf. "

And that bitch of a staffer would go home knowing that she had set up a young woman to be sexually assaulted.

That's why this "sisterhood" malarkey is bullcrap. Any woman who has spent a lot of time with other females knows very well it's not all huggy and "you go, girl!" affirmations. Women can be really mean to each other.

458 Insomniac-Try not to confuse God with life.
IMO, God is not the master puppeteer arranging every detail, and so if s*** happens it does not mean God wanted someone to lose a job, or lose a spouse or whatever. My view of the Christian life is that God ultimately wants us to be more like Christ who sometimes had a lousy life-betrayed, rejected and killed and yet he is our God. The only religion where God suffered and died-and rose again. So, yes, you seem to have this perception that God is out to get you-and yet in my view God brought you through things that might have caused someone else to take their life-and so you wouldn't have had at least the four blessings in your life which you do have. The problem of suffering and evil in life is a big one, yet people have come through that with their faith intact because nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. We have a choice-either turn to God when things go wrong or turn away. I choose the former

459 Prayers for my boy would be appreciated. In the scope of much bigger, heartbreaking problems for dear ones here, it's nothing, but he's still not well and he's the only boy I will ever have. Thanks.
Posted by: FenelonSpoke at October 12, 2017 09:04 AM (iVOAv)

Fenelon, I have been exactly where you are right now. Have a meeting with the Eco Science teacher and the guidance counselor asap, because his hospitalization, and the aftermath are absolutely the cause of the low grade-not his intellect. The instructor should have been working with him to make up the assignments he missed due to hospitalization, and subsequent treatment. You could also discuss his dropping the class without penalty due to the above. You also need to work out a 504 plan for him that recognizes his current condition, and provides for his needs-a later start because of his medications, etc.

I can't tell you it gets better quickly, because we are still dealing with it, and trying to help our son is a daily challenge. But the school is supposed to be equipped to assist you with things like this-make them do it. (But bring cookies to the meeting-I was amazed at how much more helpful the counselors and teachers were when I showed up with fresh chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies.)

You and yours are in my prayers. You have to adjust to a new kind of lifestyle now, but it can be good-just different.

(Also, have you gotten lockboxes for meds/knives/sharpes? I highly highly recommend that. it's a little inconvenient, but it gives you an added layer of peace of mind.)

Thanks very much for the compassionate. empathetic and helpful post. He actually got out of the hospital in August but he really hasn't been well since before he went in at the end of July. He's not threatening harm to himself. He never did. He just said, "It all seems pointless" I think the med for depression may6 be kicking in now, but it's still going to take a while. It does not help that the friends he has-insofar as thisi ntrovert on the spectrum can have friends-all are on the honor roll and know exactly where they are going to college. I don't recall the level of competitiveness being so bad when I was in school. Thanks too-very much for the prayers.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at October 12, 2017 09:49 AM (iVOAv)

463 Fenelon, you are a treasure. Also know that depression meds are notoriously bad in kids-they aren't designed for undeveloped brains-they are designed for adult brains=25 years plus. There are so many changes going on in adolescent brains vis a vis hormones and chemistry that antidepressants can cause more depression. Stay on top of this with your son's psychiatrist. It (sadly) took us seven years to get the right medication and dosage for our son. He's still not well, but at least he is much more stable. (Severe agoraphobia/social anxiety/depression) Just be watchful. Hugs to you, dear lady.

464 The Bourdain "Twitter rant" about Hillary only shows how leftists will never rethink their narrative in light of things like new facts or logic.

Basically, Bourdain gives her a tongue bath for her unprecedented intelligence, statesmanship, etc etc and in light of those superlative qualities, has been "disappointed" that she could not muster her usual brilliant leadership on the issue of Weinstein.

And, to be sure he signals to all the Right People, he makes various asides at how the illiterate knuckle-draggers will try to make hay of this.

So, I share JJ's wish that the in-your-face, bare-naked hypocrisy of Clinton Inc might make some the "cultural elite" rethink their positions. But I tend to doubt it.

475 All they have to do is stop talking about and it's over.

They've done this before and Weinstein is going through the steps taken by others:

1. story can't be held off any longer by normal means
2. So big liberal media outlet takes it on so as to shape it and ride herd on it so that they will be the ones to shut it down.
3. the target lawyers up but goes to rehab preferably in another country. (just in case)
4. when the Times decides enough words have been said and some lower level roaches have been exterminated. they'll shut the story down. Remember all they have to do is not print anything.
5. When the story dies down, Weinstein (if a DA hasn't indicted him) will return all apologetic and throwing money around and on the talk shows crying about he was an Addict and needed help so please feel sorry for him. And all those who claimed he did this or that. Well their careers were dying and thought this would be a boost. And he'll be on the late night with jimmy kimmel and they'll yuck it up. And when he's been sufficiently sanitized the pols will start being seen with him again. Maybe a dedication to some rehab in Cali. Soon no one will say anymore and you and I will stand here with open mouths while he proceeds to recover his career and influence without being punished or even being censored. Weinstein isn't like Cosby. Cosby started to piss people off so they went after him. Weinstein got so blatant about his perversion that the story was going to break no matter what.

Damage control to the Liberal/leftist/Democrat brand is what the NYT is alllll about.

477 "Atty. Gen. Snoozy McSnoozerson Orders FBI to Probe Weinstein"

The funny thing about this is that Sessions probably thinks this is a throwaway gag to please the rubes. In reality, it could be a major blow in the culture war, which is the only war that really matters.
He's too hidebound to see that he'll be doing actual damage to the left.
