Holding up appointees has little these days to do with if someone is deserving or not - both parties have been very good about continuing down the rabbit hole of sticking it to the other party when it comes to these things - GOP did it to the Dems, Dems did it to the GOP but better, GOP then went further again when it was their turn to do it to the Dems, and now the Dems have stepped it up even more. This is how we end up with nuclear options in the Senate and going with majority rule. I think we're going to keep going in that direction and the "advise and consent" will be just that.


This isn't about the confirmation process - it is about the security clearance process. The subject of the article was already a cleared DoD official who is going through a reclearance for a new position - and being held up for some fairly questionable reasons

The article is actually from the Wall Street Journal, I linked ZeroHedge so people wouldn't hit the paywall.

I was actually hoping youd disparage the "source"... thanks

Copy what you want and link to the WSJ. ZeroHedge is an alt-right cesspool along with Breitbart, InfoWars, etc.

Since when? :suspicious:

Im pretty sure it was originally a bunch of anonymous Wall Street insiders all posting under the pseudonym Tyler Durden, reacting to the corruption of the 2008 crash.

Maybe it’s changed but initially it was a decent homage to the concept of Durden.

The article is a verbatim, credited repost of the WSJ article.

Nice diversion, but the way to avoid paywalls is to google the first few lines of a WSJ or NYT byline and then see who has reposted it.

If you didn’t read it (see, I was right... again and again) then why make an assumption and comment on it?

At least JSO reads first

I think it's possible Trump is getting played right now. Having North Korea release hostages is not unprecedented. So far the only thing that is unprecedented is a US President agreeing to meet with the North Koreans. Any US President in the past could have done so. That's what the North Koreans have wanted and in the past US Presidents have refused. So it's not like Trump has accomplished something by getting a meeting with the North Korean leader.

We'll see what happens in the negotiations. But if Trump is the negotiator we do not have a highly competent person involved so we'll have to keep our fingers crossed.

We're talking to them so that a certain someone can take credit for neutering them. Just like any good opportunist (i.e. politician) would do.

Pretty cool. His preaching style will be a shock for the royals. But, I guess he will tone it down some. :lol:

Shared a beer with him back when he was Bishop of NC.

Meet the American who will preach at the royal wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship is transatlantic, and now their wedding ceremony will be too. Kensington Palace announced Saturday that Bishop Michael Curry, the first African American to preside over the Episcopal Church, will deliver a sermon at the couple's wedding on May 19.

Curry does not know the couple personally, said Neva Rae Fox, a spokeswoman for the Episcopal Church, but he will meet them before the ceremony.

“It was my understanding that given the fact that he was the first African American bishop and is a wonderful preacher and speaker, it would be appropriate for him to be invited to speak,” Fox told The Washington Post. “The bishop is honored and thrilled to be participating.”

Curry, installed as leader of the U.S.-based member of the Anglican Communion on Nov. 1, 2015, is socially progressive and his sermons often focus on social justice; they are also often funny and highly theatrical.

Curry is the son of the late Rev. Kenneth Curry, an outspoken civil rights activist who helped bring an end to segregated schools in Buffalo. Curry has followed in his father's activist footsteps. As bishop in North Carolina, he was one of the first to allow same-sex marriages to be performed in churches there. He has often drawn parallels between the black and LGBT civil rights movements.

The issue of same-sex marriage is one that has led to a conflict between Episcopalians and the greater Anglican Communion. In summer 2015, the Episcopal Church voted to allow gay couples to be married in religious ceremonies. The archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said at the time that such a decision “will cause distress for some and have ramifications for the Anglican Communion as a whole, as well as for its ecumenical and interfaith resolutions.” And in January 2016, the Anglican Communion announced it would suspend the Episcopal Church from key voting positions for three years due to its upholding of the same-sex marriage decision.

Curry spoke in defense of same-sex marriage. “I stand before you as a descendant of African slaves, stolen from their native land, enslaved in a bitter bondage, and then even after emancipation, segregated and excluded in church and society,” Curry said after the 2016 decision. “And this conjures that up again, and brings pain.”

Despite their differences over the issue of gay rights, Welby, who as the symbolic head of the worldwide Anglican Communion will be officiating the wedding, tweeted that he is “thrilled” Curry will preach at the royal wedding. “He is a brilliant pastor, stunning preacher and someone with a great gift for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ,” he said.
