  1. jace, thank you. hope you are feeling better.  this on fasch from bachcantataswbsite: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Lib/Fasch-Johann-Friedrich.htm

    Johann Friedrich Fasch, a contemporary of J.S. Bach and Georg Frideric Handel, was one of Germany’s leading composers in the first half of the 18th century. He was a chorister at Weißenfels in 1699 under Johann Philipp Krieger, a scholar of the Thomasschule in Leipzig from 1701 to 1707, where he studied law as well as music, the latter under Johann Kuhnau.

    […]

    J.S. Bach held Fasch’s music in high esteem, and copied out five orchestral suites of his. An autobiographical sketch appeared in Marpurg’s Historisch-kritisch Beyträge in 1757.

    None of Johann Friedrich Fasch’s music was printed in his lifetime, and much of it is lost. In the collection of music left by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was a whole set of church cantatas by Fasch. Several masses, a Requiem, eleven church cantatas and motets, one Passion-setting, various overtures, trios, sonatas, etc., are preserved in manuscript at Leipzig, Dresden, Berlin and Brussels. …. Unusual and progressive scorings feature in his orchestral music, and his output shows a transition from Baroque to early Classical style; some late works anticipate the idioms of Gluck, Haydn and Mozart.

  2. and across the pond

    (Bloomberg) — Theresa May’s cabinet is in open revolt against the prime minister and wants an interim leader to complete the Brexit process.

    According to the Sunday Times, at least six senior ministers want her deputy, David Lidington, to take the job until there’s a formal leadership election. They’ll confront her at a cabinet meeting Monday, and threaten a mass resignation if she doesn’t step down, the report said. Michael Gove, a leading Brexiteer in the 2016 referendum, and Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt also have some support.

    Senior cabinet ministers won’t support immediate attempts to replace May as their priority is to get Brexit policy back on track, ITV journalist Robert Peston said in tweets. He added that they need to first make sure whether there will be a no-deal Brexit, amended deal or referendum, and only then replace the prime minister.

    […]

    The report comes hours after hundreds of thousands of Britons poured into the streets of London demanding a second public vote. Most of the attendees favor Britain staying in the bloc.

    If May were removed, it wouldn’t necessarily trigger a general election. Under the country’s Fixed-Term Parliament Act, the next election is scheduled for May 2022.

  3. Good morning all.  Thank you Jace.  Hope you are on the mend.  I’m still in recovery mode but at least out of hospital and under the care of children.  More info after beginning of April. 

  4. The silence from SFB continues.  The few tweets that have shown up are obviously by a staffer.  Perhaps he is working on a plea deal to exit the WH in exchange?  If that hate monger pence shows up I would expect him to offer a pardon to the SFB and its mob/cult.

  5. bbronc,  don’t get your hopes up. mueller, barr and Rosenstein are not likely to go against doj std op procedure and report/list the twit’s criminal behavior since there’s no new indictment coming.  they’ll pass this stuff to the intel and judi committees behind closed doors.  all the legal action (criminal, civil, state and fed) will be elsewhere.  it’s going to be a long bumpy road.   as was noted the other day, his goal is to stay prez as long as possible until relevant statute of limitations run.

    however, there may be a sealed/silent indictment sitting in some court safe waiting for the happy day he’s no longer prez.

  6. new fox news poll out on mueller. 

    here’s a summary by newsweek: Majority of Americans Say Trump Interfered in Mueller investigation: Fox News Poll

    A majority of Americans in a newly released poll say President Donald Trump tried to interfere with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election. 

    Far more voters say they trust Special Counsel Mueller more than President Donald Trump when it comes to potential 2016 Russian interference, according to the Fox News poll, but simultaneously, a large majority of Americans say there is no chance something in the report could change their view of Trump.

    An overwhelming majority of Americans (73 percent) are demanding to see Mueller’s report released publicly, but stark differences arise in what people expect to learn from it, according to the Fox News poll released Sunday.

    Regardless of the report’s outcome, 52 percent of Americans said they believe Trump has tried to interfere with the investigation over the past two years. Thirty-six percent said they do not believe Trump has attempted to interfere in the probe. 

    […]

    Fewer than one-third (29 percent) of Americans said they trust Trump to tell the truth about any dealings with Russia, compared to 45 percent who trust the word of Mueller. About 1-in-10 Americans trust neither Trump nor Mueller. 

    Despite many U.S. voters polled by Fox News saying Trump tried to interfere with the investigation, but far fewer think the Trump campaign actually coordinated with Russia to push the billionaire businessman into office.

  7. Rep Jim Jordan R-teen trafficker is disgusting.  What is wrong with the voters in his district that they would re-elect him knowing that he turned a blind eye to sexual abuse in the wrestling department at Ohio State University.   Not too mention that he is much like Trump a big fat liar say anything even if it is a delusional fantasy to support his nutjob agenda.

  8. Since the Justice Department says you cannot indict the president  what did the stupid goopers think was going to happen —  what about when the report says — the president is a giant sleaze and if he could be indicted he would be

  9. KGC – something that is not heard much is there are seventeen to nineteen sealed indictments, which we know of, sitting in courts.  There are around fifteen or so active investigations and guesses there are other which might be counter-intelligence and not public.  Flynn and Gates are currently cooperating with some investigations, obviously not Mueller’s.  And, the Congress has ongoing investigations.  Not disheartening, but hopeful. 

  10. So according to Barr, Mueller found no evidence of coordination between Trumpco and Russia re its efforts to fuckup the 2018 election but made no findings one way or another regarding SFB obstructing justice. SFB will be high fiving all over the damn place. Idiots. 

  11. Well I am disappointed.   I thought even if the dupes at Trumpco unknowingly participated they were still guilty

    Nancy P was right

  12. Ok so Barr cleared Trump but not Mueller on the Russian charge -ack ack ack
    we are  once again Mueller isn’at going to say anything and Fat ass the golfing president can say anything he wants including lies

  13. Ms Bronc’s assessment bears repeating.
    ” . . . something that is not heard much is there are seventeen to nineteen sealed indictments, which we know of, sitting in courts.  There are around fifteen or so active investigations and guesses there are other which might be counter-intelligence and not public.  Flynn and Gates are currently cooperating with some investigations, obviously not Mueller’s.  And, the Congress has ongoing investigations.” 

  14. Jamie, glad to see you back.  hope the recovery is going well. i’ll repost your comment to
