Butter Swim Biscuits (quick and easy!)

This simple homemade recipe is TO DIE FOR! The butter makes these biscuits soft and moist on the inside, with a flaky crust on the outside. Add a little jam or jelly, and you've got heaven. 

Servings: 9

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. 

  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. 

  3. Next, add the buttermilk and mix all of the ingredients together until a moist dough is formed.

  4. Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl, and then pour it into an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish (make sure that your pan is not too small or shallow so that the butter doesn't drip out of the pan while it's baking).

  5. Place the dough right on top of the melted butter and use a spatula to spread it evenly across the pan until it touches the sides.

  6. Cut the unbaked dough (it should be swimming in butter at this point) into 9 evenish squares. 

  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top. 

  8. Enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner! These biscuits are the perfect companion to any meal. I prefer to eat them with raspberry jam. ๐Ÿ™‚

Something very interesting happened at the Supreme Court itself while all the wide world was enthralled with the saga of the guy nominated to be its ninth member for the next several decades. In August, a federal district judge named Beryl Howell ruled that nonprofit groups placing political advertisements have to reveal the identities of anyone who gave them more than $200. Last Saturday, Chief Justice John Roberts jumped in with an order that blocked this ruling. Then on Wednesday, the Court itself refused to agree with Roberts and refused to block Judge Howell's order. From The New York Times:

The case was brought by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, a watchdog group. It sued the Federal Election Commission and Crossroads GPS, a conservative group. Judge Howell struck down a federal regulation that had effectively allowed secret contributions, saying it conflicted with a federal statute. A federal appeals court will hear an appeal of Judge Howell's ruling, but no decision is expected until after the elections in November. That means many groups placing campaign advertisements will have to disclose their donors in the meantime.

Crossroads GPS happens to be Karl Rove's outfit, so that makes this a decision that has campaign-finance reformers turning handsprings.

The ruling applies to groups like social welfare and business organizations that do not register as political committees with the election commission. The commission had required disclosure of donors only when they contributed money for specific advertisements. That allowed them to evade statutory disclosure requirements, Judge Howell wrote. "A donor contributing over $200 during a calendar year to a not-political committee for the express purpose of advocating for or against the election of a candidate for federal office, would nonetheless not be identified," she wrote, "absent the donor's express agreement that the funds be used for the specific expenditures reported to the F.E.C., even though the donor may otherwise support and in fact contribute for the purpose of funding those expenditures."

That is Christmas in September for those embattled souls who have been trying to make sense of how to do politics in an era in which the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision essentially legalized anonymous influence-peddling. There will be an appeal but, at least through this November's midterms, these completely phony "public-service organizations"—"Public service" in this case being defined as informing the public that your opponent is a Communist baby-killing liberal fascist who wants to steal your firearms and give you a gay-marriage abortion—will have to cough up the names of the peddlers of influence that are financing them. That this also will apply to liberal groups doesn't matter a damn, not to me, either.

What matters is that, in this case at least, there seems to have been a faction on the Court that is willing to be flexible on dark money, and that's willing to overrule the Chief on the subject, too. Of course, it's a 4-4 court right now. I am not optimistic about the future, but this was a nice moment.

"To some Germans and, no doubt, to most foreigners it appeared that a charlatan had come to power in Berlin. To the majority of Germans Hitler had — or would shortly assume — the aura of a truly charismatic leader. They were to follow him blindly, as if he possessed a divine judgment, for the next twelve tempestuous years." – William L. Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany

"In his case, what had been hardness became cruelty, while a tendency to bluff became plain dishonesty. He often lied without hesitation and assumed that others lied to him." – Ibid.

Daily Debunker

Blowin' in the Wind. Despite being downgraded to a tropical storm after making landfall, Hurricane Florence continues to wreak havoc with heavy rainfall and devastating floodwaters in the Carolinas.

The storm also continues to dominate national news coverage, with television reporters doing live updates almost around the clock. Strangely, some of this coverage has wound up being labeled "fake news" after clips circulated on social media.

A widely-shared clip from the Weather Channel shows a reporter bracing himself as he is buffeted by high winds that appear to leave others visible in the footage almost entirely unaffected. Was it a case of dramatic license, or some unusually selective heavy wind currents? Read more

Similarly, a video that appears to show CNN's Anderson Cooper reporting live from an extra-deep hole in a flooded field was called out because the video crew can be seen standing in much shallower water. Was the footage staged? For that matter, was it even shot during Hurricane Florence? Read more

Rumor Rundown

Off the Rails. Did NRATV digitally add Ku Klux Klan hoods to "Thomas the Tank Engine" characters? A National Rifle Association television segment hosted by Dana Loesch caused controversy in September 2018. (True)

Satanic Sneakers. Does Nike make shoes featuring the "all-seeing eye" symbol? If you think that your shoes are watching you, maybe they are ... if you own this particular Nike line. (Mostly true)

Faith Trumps Government. Did President Trump say that "faith is more powerful than government?" The U.S. chief executive employed the phrase at a National Day of Prayer event in May 2018. (Correct attribution)

Define 'Christian.' Did Chelsea Clinton say it would be "un-Christian" to protect babies from abortion? Clinton stoked controversy during a town hall radio broadcast by framing her stance in support of Roe v. Wade as "deeply religious." (Mixture)

Pictures at an Execution. Does a viral photograph show 26 "corrupt" politicians executed by China? A picture didn't capture "corrupt" politicians or an execution, although some of the latter followed afterwards. (Miscaptioned)

Premature Burial. Was Essie Dunbar discovered alive in the coffin during her funeral? In 1915, Essie Dunbar was allegedly pronounced dead after suffering from a seizure. Legend has it that she was discovered to be alive mid-way through her burial. (Unproven)

Fist Pump Fever. Was President Trump's 9/11 "fist pump" a greeting to a cancer victim? Deceptive memes purport to correct misinformation offered by other supposedly deceptive memes. (False)

U.S. Coast Guard Member Removed from Hurricane Response Team Over Hand Gesture. "These types of actions are not reflective of the core values of the Coast Guard." Read more

Robert Sapolsky, Intellectual Heavyweight | Model P and Mayor Ford | Korean Kindness

I marinated at Stanford for four years and had the incredible luck to observe, learn, and unlearn from many distinguished speakers. Right now the biggest regret I have about my time at Stanford is not to have taken or sat in a class or even a lunch talk that included Robert Sapolsky. Some of the leading public intellectuals of our time include Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Pinker, Malcolm Gladwell, Barbara Ehrenreich, and Yuval Noah Harari. Robert Sapolsky should be as well known as any of those thinkers, and I believe anyone who reads his works will find it immensely accessible, insightful, and helpful to better understand humanity.

Sapolsky is best known for Behave: The BIology of Humans at our Best and Worst but I encourage readers to check out two of his earlier works: "A Primate's Memoir" and "Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers." The former is excellent and one that I really enjoyed while listening to it as an audiobook. The latter is an "acclaimed guide to stress, stress-related diseases, and coping." And it will shape how you think about managing stress, Type-A people, poor people and stress, and stress and aging. If Daily Pnut was a book club, this is a book that I would heavily advocate the group read. Although we have linked the books to Amazon, we encourage readers to check out the books from their library.

The release of FISAs like this is off the charts. It is especially unprecedented considering that the FISAs have already gone through declassification review and the President is overruling the judgments of his subordinates to require expanded disclosure. 1/3

Trump: "Classified" Illiterate or Treason?

He just released more unredacted classified documents. That will place human sources in harms' way and possibly expose those that contributed. Putin loves this...makes it easier for him to kill spies and plug leaks.

One year after alleged sexual assault, Kavanaugh's friend and alleged accomplice (Mark Judge) thought it great to associate himself with this quote in their high school yearbook 1983:

"Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs"

Mormon fighting to end youth interviews ousted from faith

Mormon fighting to end youth interviews ousted from faith

Mormon fighting to end youth interviews ousted from faith

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Mormon man who led a campaign criticizing the church's practice of allowing closed-door, one-on-one interviews of youth by lay leaders that sometimes included sexual questions has been kicked out of the faith following a disciplinary hearing.

Sam Young read a verdict letter for the first time Sunday that had been delivered to him following last week's hearing with local church leaders in Houston.

Young and his supporters say the interviews where youth are asked if they're following the law of chastity led to inappropriate conversations and shaming.

Young called his excommunication "a supreme disappointment" and was emotional at a news conference attended by about 100 of his supporters.

"The whistleblower has been kicked out," he said. "But they have no power to excommunicate me from the cause of protecting children and protecting the healing of my friends. For our children's sake, this whistleblower is not going to stop roaring."

Young, 65, recently finished a 23-day hunger strike in Salt Lake City near church headquarters to bring attention to his cause. In March, he organized a protest march of about 1,000 people who walked to church headquarters.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints doesn't comment on disciplinary hearings to respect people's privacy.

While not a lifelong ban, excommunication is a rare move that amounts to the harshest punishment available for a church member.

Young becomes the third high-profile Mormon who led protests about church policy to be excommunicated in recent years.

Kate Kelly, founder of a group pushing for women to be allowed in the religion's lay clergy, was excommunicated in 2014. John Dehlin, who runs a podcast that allows doubting Mormons to tell their stories, was kicked out in 2015.

In his summons to the disciplinary hearing, church leaders told Young he was facing excommunication because he encouraged others to vote against church leaders and because he organized more than one public action that expressed opposition.

The youth interviews usually happen twice a year starting at 12. One of the questions asked by men who are called bishops deals with sexual activity: "Do you live the law of chastity?"

Young and the Mormons and non-Mormons who back his campaign say the question is unnecessary and inappropriate.

The church changed its policy earlier this year to allow children to bring a parent or adult with them. Parents were only allowed in a hallway or adjacent room under old rules. Youth can still go in alone if they choose.

In June, the faith, for the first time, posted the list of questions lay leaders are supposed to ask during the interviews.

Mormon leaders say the interviews are an important way for bishops to get to know youth better and determine their religious habits and obedience to God.

Young's ouster means he'll be leaving a religion he's been a member of his entire life. Mormons usually have tight-knit connections with other people in their congregations, bonds forged by spending worship and social time together.

Excommunicated Mormons and those not in good standing can't go inside temples where members are married and other ordinances such as baptisms for dead relatives are performed.
