Strzok-Page Texts Mention Meeting of "Secret Society," The Day After Trump's Election

This doesn't sound suspicious at all.

I'm sure noted RUSSIAN BOT expert Allahpundit will later note that this story is being spread by RUSSIAN BOTS.


House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News on Monday that one of the newly-revealed text messages spoke of a "secret society."

"The day after the election, the day after what they really, really didn't want to have happen, there's a text exchange between [Strzok and Page] ... saying, 'Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society,'" Gowdy said. "So, of course I'm going to want to know: What 'secret society' are you talking about?"

Deb Heine reports that Congressmen want a second special prosecutor to investigate this.


There is serious talk on Capitol Hill about the appointment of a second special counsel amid several new bombshell revelations swirling around the Trump/Russia probe.

First, there are the allegations of shocking and substantial government surveillance abuses under President Obama outlined in the FISA abuse memo.

Secondly, the FBI lost five months of key text messages between the anti-Trump/pro-Clinton FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page. And now there's talk of a "secret society" of officials within the FBI that apparently met the day after the election of Donald J. Trump to plot against the president-elect.



@RepRatcliffe
The thousands of texts @TGowdySC and I reviewed today revealed manifest bias among top FBI officials against @realDonaldTrump. The texts between Strzok and Page referenced a "secret society."

Top Republicans now believe there may be real grounds for a second special counsel, Fox News reported Monday evening.

Do you let Mueller just continue to humiliate himself and spin his wheels, or do you shut it down?

My only fear is Mueller keeps this going for the entire Trump Presidency and just hopes a Trump crony does something stupid and cuts a deal.

Obviously, any real "prosecution" would go up in smoke if it went to trial as there's plenty here to show over the top bias and tampering.

I want those involved fired and investigated for treason and sedition and perverting their oath of office.

And THAT is why the Strzok/Page affair story is a distraction.

No, this was not just cutesy sex roleplay.
They were key members of an FBI-DoJ-Obama WH team who were abusing FISA 702 queries (likely for years) in order to do all sorts of hihly illegal and traitorous stuff, including getting Hillary out of charges for her email server/careless handling of classified docs, Uranium One deal, and attempting to outs an elected/sitting president.

159 Comey went to the NY Slimes with intent to generate a special "prosecutor/counsel", probably according to plan, knowing they had Mueller all lined up. That's not how it works ... no the correct legal procedure.

The fact Deep State is still operating and their criminals are still not indicted, not even fired ... is a sign this separate shadow government is still functional, still has government resources at its disposal.

That's not good ... but it seems only public opinion matters at this point, not law. So exposing the documents is supposed to sway public opinion, since our government is not just lawless, they are the enemy. (at least the ones still running the machinery are the enemy, even if they are slightly on the defensive now)

Maybe the great roundup is underway ... maybe chess pieces are in position ... but no one is resigning the game, so now what?

I guess more raw exposure of evidence till the public gives the go signal? Lots of bad players in NYDC ...

Keep in mind a large number of people in Congress and govt. hate Sessions, and blame him for Trump having the message and ability to get elected. Read Sessions memo from back in the day that totally condemns Congress and alerts Americans. I will love and defend that little Keebler Elf for that alone. He may not be perfect, who is, but he has earned my respect and loyalty and the benefit of doubt. Unlike most in the UniParty.

At some point we all must hoist the black flag. Since we don't have black flags, and we don't have knives, we just throw poo.

Palestinian group pulled out of Women's March over Scarlett Johansson's Israel ties

"While her position may not be reflective of all organizers at the Women's March Los Angeles Foundation, PAWA cannot in good conscience partner itself with an organization that fails to genuinely and thoughtfully recognize when their speaker selection contradicts their message," the Palesitnian[sic] women's group [said].

Don't insult my intelligence with your transparent attempts to hide your rabid Jew-hate with the noble cloak of political disagreement with the Jewish state. Israel has a vibrant political opposition, is socially liberal, has robust anti-discrimination laws, and allows pretty much anything except bomb-building and planning terrorist attacks against its citizens. Israeli women are, by far, the freest in the Middle East, and are on par with the women of any other Western country.

I'll pay more attention to these genocide enablers if a couple of them fly to Saudi Arabia or Iran and give each other big old sloppy kisses in public, sans burka.

Let us extend this argument just a bit, shall we? How about parents who spend their own money on their children...shouldn't that be double-taxed like an inheritance? After all, it's simply a matter of timing.

Little Billy Kristol has abandoned all pretense of being a conservative, or even a liberal Republican. This is full-blown redistributionist, class-hating socialism. And not particularly clever or interesting or well phrased. The least he could do with the expensive education that his parents paid for is use it correctly.

******


Does Chuckie Schemer have the most irritating voice in politics? Obviously Hillary Clinton retired the trophy, but she isn't an active player, so I think Schumer is the winner.

******


Oh my! This about the most ridiculous thing I have read in a very long time, and that includes Billy-boy Kristol from above.

So...morality is relative. Isn't that sort of nonsensical? One doesn't create one's own morality, it is based on a universal truth, otherwise it is simply what feels good.

-Our other brother-in-law with the cancer around his heart is doing well with chemo/radiation. We pray that it continues successfully and with few side effects.

Methos- (12/12/17) Mother has Alzheimers and friend Herb died shortly before Thanksgiving, leaving a wife with unspecified memory issues and three adult children.

LCMS Rulz!- (12/12/17) 1) Advancing dementia in my Mother-in-Law: we're going to have to move her all-too-soon;
2) Praise and Glory be for the near simultaneous cancer healings among three of my in-laws.

Michael the Texan- (12/12/17) Difficult divorce from longtime physically abusive wife. Please pray for my wife, too, as this divorce will leave her with much less financial freedom.

Elisabeth- (12/12/17) Chronic stress from my perpetually low income is worsening my known autoimmune problems and probably some that haven't yet been diagnosed, and I've just started my fifth course of antibiotics for a recurrent sinus infection and nothing I've tried to improve my income situation (finding a better job, asking for a raise, selling my work, finding cheaper housing) has worked. Plus, I need new glasses but can't afford the eye exam.

Redinabluestate- (12/12/17) Prostate cancer.

Physics Geek- (12/12/17) Both my mother and stepdad (divorced and not together) are suffering from dementia, with my stepfather's case being somewhat further along.

NoLongerInTheBellyoftheBeast- (12/18/17) I need to have prayers added to the list for a friend and cow-orker named Renee who just got diagnosed with endometrial cancer. I could also use prayers for myself. Major joint pain and long term major depression. And prayers for better finances to pay medical bills.

Johnny- (12/19/17) About a year and a half ago my wife divorced me. It was all very civil and amicable. Today she told me (texted me) that she is now engaged. This whole time, I've been torn up and depressed, of course, but, I don't know, maybe I was in denial or something, because when she told me that.. Gah. It's really over. That life that I was so excited about, will never come to pass.

Tone Staple- (12/19/17) For a relative with Pick's Disease, and for his family. Pick's Disease is a form of dementia that starts with gradual loss of language.

Arch Stanton- (12/19/17) My dad is recovering from having a pacemaker put in, and battling COPD.

Captain Whitebread- (12/19/17) I've had to go to the local hospital ER a couple of times since heart surgery because I was concerned I might be having more heart trouble. I didn't, but since I didn't have insurance, the bill was huge. I tried paying a little every month, but sometimes I missed because money is really tight.
Monday, I was served with a court summons. The collection agency working for the hospital is taking me to court. I owe $4500. I have no way of paying in full. I have to appear in court with the next 35 days.
All I am asking from the Horde is prayers that a workable solution might be found. I am not asking for money; everyone has done more than enough after my heart surgery and when I almost had my electricity cut off a couple of years ago. I believe that with enough prayer, a way will reveal itself. At this time, I don't know what it is. But I believe there is one.

Ladyl- (12/20/17) My dad is back on Hopice and isn't doing great.

Anonymous- (12/19/17) ...Her family has to leave the R.V. park because her husband lost his job two months ago. He has a job prospect in Texas so he is going after it. There are 7 of them living in a 16 ft. trailer but the children are always clean and happy. She has been driving for Uber just to keep food on the table. She's scared about moving, trying to be normal for the kids, doesn't know what will happen if this job prospect doesn't work out. She's got such a good heart and is trying so hard, right now she feels a little desperate and tired.
Please pray for her and her family. I know how much it helps.

Anonymous- (12/22/17) A dear friend who survived cancer--twice--died unexpectedly Thursday night. Not from cancer. He was one of the kindest, sweetest people I've known. His widow is in shock, and sitting in their house looking at the tree they decorated together, and their gifts to each other under it.

Patrick from Ohio- (12/24/17) Can you add my Sister In Law Denise she suffers from LUPUS like symptoms and nothing is really working.

JQ- (12/26/17) 'Twas an otherwise Merry Christmas, because it might be Dad's last, as he has advanced cancer. Dad (80s) is ambulatory but slowing down...
The reality of Dad's situation hit hard tonight after I got home and my heart is breaking.
Prayers welcome, if you would please.
Thanks, Merry Christmas, and God bless you all.

Jim, Sunk New Dawn- (12/26/17) From a rather chilly Orlando, FL. 89 y/o Step Mom in deteriorating health. One way trip, and a contest as to what gets her first. Water around enlarged heart, or OldTimers.
Looks like I'll have to make a hasty long term TDY to Orlando, for however long time is left.

DaninMN- (1/8/18 ) Daughter came home from NICU and met her 19 Month old Sister.

mpfs- (1/1/18 ) Mom was taken by ambulance yesterday afternoon to the hospital. Possible stroke. When they took her sugar last night it was... 759. Even the neurologist did a double take.

Catman- (1/2/18 ) My dad died tonight.... Please prayers.

Ron- (1/2/18 ) Please pray for the family of Zack Parrish, the Douglas County Sheriff's
Deputy who was slaughtered in an ambush in Highlands Ranch, CO on December
30. He was a true follower of Jesus Christ. Zack was 29. Please pray for his
wife Gracie and the two little daughters he left.

rocketeer67- (1/2/18 ) Praying for strength to get through a totally unexpected, unforeseen and unwanted divorce from my wife of 20 years. Praying for understanding as to why she has asked for it. Prayers that her eyes would be opened to the hurt that this is causing everyone around her, even if we're all trying to accept it (with varying degrees of sucess moment by moment) with dignity, grace, and love. Most importantly, prayers for our young children, who while appearing to be bearing it better than expected are clearly (at least to me) not themselves.


AllenG- (1/9/18 ) None of my normal pith tonight. I desperately covet the prayers of the Horde.
The 9 yr old son of one of my old HS/Church youth group friends wouldn't wake up this morning. They took him to the ER and an MRI found a mass in his brain. A first surgery to remove it was only partially successful, he still hasn't woken up, and he's been back I surgery for the lady couple of hours.
His name is Brody Nelson. I grew up with his mom, Courtney. They and their family could really use a miracle right about now...

Gabe- (1/9/18 ) I have a couple of good friends, Patrick Porter and Barbie Turner who are both battling cancer. A petition to the almighty by the horde would be huge IMO.

Commander Cobra- (1/9/18 ) Prayers for active Service Members and those who have served.

sulla- (1/9/18 ) I'd ask to have my mother and sister-in-law added. My mother broke her shoulder this week, and my sister-in-law is recovering from a liver/kidney transplant.

Fox2!- (1/14/18 ) Please add a friend to the list. She is in ICU, sedated and intubated.

jeannebodine- (1/14/18 ) feeling particularly low right now in this brutal winter. My 68-year old husband suffers from Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease and he is deteriorating rapidly.
We have no family around us and friends are thin on the ground, even though we always had many friends throughout our lives. Even close friends have disappeared.
It sure is a different world out there than the one I grew up in. Prayers would be so appreciated for my husband and for me, a full-time spouse caregiver.
Thank you so much. Prayers for you and the Horde from my end.

Mary Poppins' Practically Perfect Piercing- Job issues; (1/16/18 ) A friend's wife of barely 2 years was killed by a train. No word on whether it was an accident or suicide. Prayers for him and his daughters.

Nathan- (1/16/18 ) Kitsapbass (and family) homeless. Long story short. Wife's ex husband has custody of elder two kids, goes to jail. We move in because state is mandating parent must be in residence, requiring us to break lease. Ex-husband kicks all (including kids he has custody of) out of house because he is upset that we are in the house (even though he knew all this was required by state).

Kim Jong-nun- (1/16/18 ) Please pray for the complete recovery of Wayne DuPree's sister who has the most virulent form of breast cancer.

Northernlurker- Wife has passed, (1/17/18 ).

Czarkazm- (1/17/18 ) We are grateful to God for taking care of our daughter in her first semester at college while earning a 4.0 GPA.

thathalfrican- (1/19/18 ) My mother for healing from her cancer and weight gain. My father for having the weight of the world on his shoulders. My siblings for being so young and having to endure all this. My wife for a safe finish to her pregnancy and delivery of our child.
Some good fortune for my family would be helpful heh.

Big earthquake in Kodiak, Alaska, per the Morning Report. I don't know where tcn in AK is but until we hear from her, please keep her in your prayers. Just in case. (1/23/18 ).

"Catholics for choice" is a Soros-funded front group intended to undermine the Catholic Church. It is not affiliated with the church in any way. Catholic teachings on these subjects are quite the opposite, even if the current Pope doesn't like to emphasize it.

35 Catholics for Choice is rather like Jews for Jesus, or maybe Palestinians for Jew's Rights, or "I love you as you are, now change for me."

Cafeteria Catholics are just attention whores who know they can't get an audience if they go full on Protestant, so they claim to be Catholic while being nothing of the sort.

Of course, their sins are no worse than mine, but blasphemy is a dangerous path if one cares about one's eternal soul.

Under the version of His Daddy was a well known conservative thinker who founded a magazine which was inherited by his idiot son, Bill, who tried hard to pretend he was a conservative that his Daddy would have been proud of, up until the day that Trump began to win. At which point Bill Kristolnacht did the full Chuckie Johnson and went all out, hard core leftist.

69 Never has there been a greater divide between Democrats and Republicans on the subject of Israel in forty years of polling, according to a new survey published on Tuesday.


The Pew Research Center findings show Republicans more sympathetic than ever toward Israel, with Democrats increasingly divided, now equally likely to support the Palestinian cause.

Overall, 79% of Republicans sympathize with Israel in the survey compared to only 27% of Democrats.



Since 2001, the share of Republicans sympathizing more with Israel than the Palestinians has increased 29 percentage points, the pollsters found. Over the same period, the share of Democrats saying this has declined 11 points.

The Left/Dems love Israel just like they love The Military: ie not at all

89 I really don't mind Trump's trips to Mar-a-Lago.

Here's why: Obama was on the road nearly every week, to attend silly townhall discussions and make speeches in flyover country, mainly as a cover for what the trips were really for: attend fundraisers. Also, the tens of millions on lavish Hawaii and Martha's Vineyard vacations (and *rental* mansions).

So Trump going to his own place to relax and work is preferable to BS trips to avoid work and raise money for OFA, Obama library, etc.. By the way, where did all that money go? The DNC was so broke in 2016 they could be manipulated by Hillary just to access some of her campaign funds (and she put the DNC on a budget!).

Posted by: votermom pimping great books! at January 23, 2018 11:16 AM (hMwEB)

There is a fair amount of liquid in the meat itself, so it should be okay. But take a look about halfway through the cooking, and if it doesn't look like it is nice and moist, add some liquid. A beer would work. HAlf for you, and half for the pork butt.

Votermom-every couple of hours, check the meat, and if it is starting to look dry/burned around the sides of the crockpot, add 1/2 cup of broth-vegetable or chicken. Beef is too strongly flavored for the pork. Beer would also work well. If you want a sweeter bbq, add 1/3 cup cola or root beer.

185 As an avid Shark Tank watcher, I remember Scott E vests pitch to the sharks. Even Cuban, who often invests in dumb crap, told the guy that the vest was already outdated, that wireless and Bluetooth was current and no one needed a vest with wires strung through it for six different applications. No one carries that many devices anymore since phones have so many additional features today.

The clown didn't get a deal, both because the vest was dumb and also because he ended up pissing off the sharks with his attitude. LOL, I guess they were quite the fortune tellers about this guy.

By the way, this guy went to law school. Enough said.

210 The dems did NOT get 90% of the Jewish Vote. Just for the record:

71% of Jews supported the democratic nominee in this years election, slightly more than the 69% who voted for Obama in 2012, but significantly less than the 78% who turned out for Obama in 2008, the 74% who voted for Kerry in 2004, or the 79% who voted for Gore in 2000.

A September 2016 poll conducted by the American Jewish Committee found that approximately 50% of Orthodox voters favored Trump while 21% supported Clinton (a full 15% said they would not vote).

And I would suggest the % of Jews voting for PDT will rise in the next election

They followed up British Steel with Point of Entry, which wasn't really a bad album, but it was no match for iron maiden's Killers. It was a huge fuckup.

It is a maddening enigma why so many Jews are still mindlessly Left, but the trend IS positive at least. See also certain Asian Americans.

My hunches as to why:
1. Academic indoctrination, where many are,
2. HollyLeftism, where many are, at least in the Los Angeles area anyway, and
2. Deep Statism, to which many have tied their futures.

Still, if the trend is positive, I will be patient with them.

Far more sensible to appeal to them than the GOPee strategy of "Hispandering", which has proven to be a failure time and time again.

Maybe if intelligent, dutiful parents give their kids extra tutoring, the government should outlaw that those parents give their own children an unfair advantage. And then require them to give free tutoring to those they deem "underprivileged".

Got mine on Amazon. If you go to the MyPillow site they are more expensive because they offer a steep discount for an additional one. The Amazon price was the equivalent of the price per pillow if you applied the 2-fer deal.

316 Kristol really is a douche. And what is his constituency these days? Are there really that many NeverTrumpers to keep his stupid magazine afloat?
Posted by: JoeF.

Irving Kristol, his father has been called either the Father of Neoconservatism (probably true) and the Godfather of modern conservatism (probably false, or at least an exaggeration).

Irving gave up a lot of his Red friends, when he abandoned the Left in the 1960's. He even wrote a book about it, called "Former Friends", which documents his move from the Left. You can argue that Irving Kristol ended up being wrong about certain things, but he didn't lack courage or convictions.

Like a dog returning to its vomit, Bill is becoming the man that his father left behind, because Irving, formerly a man of the Left, realized the Left hated America and wanted it destroyed. And this was over 50 years ago.
Maybe Bill should read his father's own book.

The atheist Jew is culturally still a Jew, but would not attend synagogue."

You don't know much about the Reformed Judaism movement, the dominant Jewish group in America. (but NOT in Israel!!!)

The Question is, if you are a Reformed Jew, can you still believe in the actual existence of any God? And the answer is, probably not.

The Orthodox are the only group that openly, unashamedly believes in the God of the Fathers. The Conservative Jewish movement kind of does, but they've fallen into the trap that Episcopals and other main line churches have fallen into, in that they tend to focus on moaning about "why can't we all be friends?" and taking no hard theological positions on anything anymore.

411 The presidency of Donald Trump is a "miracle" for Israel, according to Science and Technology Minister Ophir Akunis.

Minister Akunis spoke with Arutz Sheva about the speech US Vice President Mike Pence delivered in the Knesset Monday, the raising of the idea of the two-state solution during the speech, and compared the Trump Administration's treatment of Israel to the previous Obama Administration's.

"The vice president's speech is the greatest Zionist speech ever delivered by a guest in the Knesset plenum. This is a high point in the relations between Israel and the US since 1948, not only because of the moving announcement about the transfer of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but also because of the [acknowledgement of the] historical ties and connection between the people of Israel and the Land of Israel, which the Vice President did impressively. This can even teach some of the political figures in the State of Israel," Akunis said.

Ozzy's solo career songs are very enjoyable, lots of fun. But they lack the profundity of his Sabbath years. Maybe "pop-metal" would be an appropriate term.

426 Arab Knesset members from the Zionist Union and the Joint List would not want their daughters to marry Jews.

In a Channel 12 interview, Knesset Member Zuhair Bahlul (Zionist Union) said that "intermarriage is not recommended, nor do I want my children to be assimilated. I want you to preserve your culture and I'll preserve my culture. As far as I'm concerned, a Jewish son-in-law isn't recommended."

Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi said his daughter would decide on the matter, but her decision was already clear: "She'll decide, and she'll decide not to go in this direction. I know what she thinks and she told me she'd never marry a Jew."

437 69 Since 2001, the share of Republicans sympathizing more with Israel than the Palestinians has increased 29 percentage points, the pollsters found. Over the same period, the share of Democrats saying this has declined 11 points.

Posted by: Nevergiveup at January 23, 2018 11:12 AM (5y11N)


Makes sense to me. Upon seeing Palestinians gyrating with glee following the September 11 terrorist attacks, any shred of sympathy I had for their plight went out the window. Also, the left has developed a strong kinship with Islamists since then--not surprising, as both groups generally loathe Christianity as well as Western liberalism.

438 "383 So in the movie "Truth" what is the argument,that the document was real?That the story was true even if the document was fake?"

You couldn't pay me enough to watch that piece of idiocy, but I remember at the time that for a bit (until they were laughed off the national stage) Dan Rather and Mary Mapes tried to claim that the man who gave the doc to them (Bill Burkett) burned all of the originals after faxing them to CBS. He did this because he was worried that the BOOSH FAMILY had sent SuPeR SeKriT NinJa SpieS after him to get them back and kill him in the process.

The important point about claiming that they only had fax copies - document examiners will always specify that they will only examine original copies for verification, since errors always come into any copying process. So, even though it was shown beyond doubt that these docs were bad forgeries, no document expert would ever examine them, because they were only copies. So, Rather and Mapes used that trick to say "so maybe they're real!!!"

The source of the documents, Bill Burkett, had a long history as a disgruntled nutcase, and his story about the documents he was providing changed radically with every different person who interviewed him. One time, he was facing some truly hard questions on camera, and he actually threw himself on the floor and did the whole fake heart attack thing to get out of the interview. (It got better)

The whole thing truly was a 3 ring circus.

442 @146, CBD: "If you believe that the Messiah has come then you aren't Jewish." When did the belief that the Messiah MUST arrive at some point in the future become essential to Judaism? And where was it taught that it is essential? Does that mean that, when the Messiah does eventually come, that those Jews who recognize the Messiah ceases to be Jews?

First, it was always part of Pharisaic Judaism, and is still part of Orthodox Judaism to this day. The party referred to as the Sadduccees back in roman times, much like the Reformed Movement today, didn't believe in it so much.

A local Rabbi I know likes to tell his Christian friends, "If I am here and the Messiah Comes, I really will have only one question for him: Is this your first visit, or your second???"

447 The Christian version of a Messiah seems a more spiritualized thing than exists in Judaism (ex. Psalm 2). Jesus tells his disciples at the ascension in the beginning of Acts that he did not return to restore the kingdom at that time.

84 Another fine example of the Romantic theme of Man vs. Nature. Look at how the humans are rendered puny and powerless. They even blend into the landscape with only a small daub of red to draw your eye to them. Meanwhile, the landscape is huge and menacing. The crashing, crushing waves slam against the solid, towering rocks. Notice too how the people, who should be the focus, but aren't, are limited to the very bottom of the piece, while the exact center holds the most violent image of the painting. Vernet further emphasizes this area buy giving it a spotlight effect. This spotlight is repeated on the people--while he wants them to remain secondary, he doesn't want you to miss them entirely. Vernet wants you to feel the terror, drama and tragedy of this scene.

Nice find, CBD.

98 That painting reminds me of the time I jumped into the wave pool at Wet n' Wild years ago and it was a lot more intense than I expected. I kept trying to swim to the side, but the waves kept washing me back and interrupting my breathing.

I remember a girl on an air mattress saying, I think that guys drownin'" in a lovely southern drawl.

I was thinking, "Could this be the end of Rico."

Anyway, long story short, I survived.

So that was the two times I was in the wave pool--the first and the last.

127 Love the use scale and of color in this storm scene with the grays of the water, clouds, and the wet rocks. The small figures emphasize the deadly force of nature that humans face in their endeavors on the ocean. Anyone who has shivered watching waves smashing against rocky cliffs can feel the wind, mist and cold. Very effective. Also a bit different from many other Vernet paintings which are usually very bright even when the subject is tragic.

Doyle has Sherlock Holmes mention he is related to Vernet the artist. Looking at these other paintings I can see how they would appeal to Doyle, who thought his White Company adventure and other books would outlive the Holmes stories.

Best things about dogs is if you love them a ton when the are little, they will give it back tenfold for the rest of their lives.
Be sure to get the right size and shed/not shed style and a dog will never be a bother. I think the "right size for you" is the biggest thing to think about.

I don't care for little dogs. I like me a 50 pounder- 90 is good, but getting into "needs special vehicle" range.

Best things about dogs is if you love them a ton when the are little, they will give it back tenfold for the rest of their lives.
Be sure to get the right size and shed/not shed style and a dog will never be a bother. I think the "right size for you" is the biggest thing to think about.

I don't care for little dogs. I like me a 50 pounder- 90 is good, but getting into "needs special vehicle" range.

Posted by: Cuthbert the Witless at January 23, 2018 10:00 AM (ymnmz)

I'm quite a distance from making a decision but honestly I'm leaning Akita--probably a female, which would run maybe 110 pounds. That breed would require focussed training for the first six months, maybe year to establish dominance and socialize her but that might be an awesome distraction. I'm aware of shedding issues but I can take her out for brushing once or twice a year.
A dog that is gentle with visitors but slightly aloof might be my personal preference over a dog that jumps on every lap.

265 I'm quite a distance from making a decision but

honestly I'm leaning Akita--probably a female, which would run maybe 110

pounds. That breed would require focussed training for the first six

months, maybe year to establish dominance and socialize her but that

might be an awesome distraction. I'm aware of shedding issues but I can

take her out for brushing once or twice a year.


A dog that is gentle with visitors but slightly aloof might be my personal preference over a dog that jumps on every lap.

The ghost would enter through the portals at night and attack various passengers, until they set up a watch.

289 some were talking about Napolitano at FOX ... it seems to me he got "a little hinky" after his brief "suspension". imo he started getting a lot of things wrong, not sure who he was serving but it wasn't good.

anyway ... so I looked up why he got suspended, it was over his claim (March 2017) that Obama had spied on Trump using FISA, and that he had used the Brits (GCHQ) to get around the "Americans spying on Americans" problem.

He came back to Fox a new man, or a neu'tered man maybe. He said he had good sources, he probably did. But shadow people didn't want that known. They claimed it was debunked, but all that word means now is that they could not confirm it was true, not that it is proven false.

The Democratic House members have it so easy.
They really don't have to vote and when they do they can vote "no" (or anything) and it has no event.
(keep in mind that when this same situation occurred under Newt Gingrich, Henry Gonzales (D-TX) didn't show up in DC for most of the two years of his last term)
For House members to point at the Senate and say "They Caved" is truly disingenuous.

297 Hi everyone.

So - brake cleaner. This is normally something I would have asked my dad, and he would have insulted me for not knowing it before he grudgingly gave me the answer.

I'm setting up to do a brake job, and I need to clean up the calipers. Conventional wisdom has been to keep the brake cleaner off any rubber, plastic, or painted parts. No problem and I've always been very careful about that - but then I got a brake cleaner that doesn't use a chloridated solvent and apparently it's a bit murkier.

So, can one use a non-chloridated brake cleaner and not worry about getting it on the rubber brake lines....? Anyone have any experience with something like that?

322 The only way the whole black/female/trans James Bond thing could work is if you believed the fan theory that "James Bond" is a codename passed down from one agent to the next. However, the backstory portions of Skyfall, as well as the fact that Roger Moore made multiple references to a dead wife (happened on Lazenby's watch) disprove this theory and establish that the movies are about Ian Fleming's character.

SJWs cannot create, they only cannibalize the creations of others. Also, Fleming would definitely be a Moron.

346 The only way the whole black/female/trans James Bond thing could work is if you believed the fan theory that "James Bond" is a codename passed down from one agent to the next. However, the backstory portions of Skyfall, as well as the fact that Roger Moore made multiple references to a dead wife (happened on Lazenby's watch) disprove this theory and establish that the movies are about Ian Fleming's character.

SJWs cannot create, they only cannibalize the creations of others. Also, Fleming would definitely be a Moron.
Posted by: Biggs Darklighter at January 23, 2018 10:34 AM (mynhJ)

It was bandied about--or suggested--that since "007" was a code name and not any one individual agent, the door was open for Connery, Moore, Brosnan, Dalton and Lazenby to appear in the same Bond film at some point.

It's as if these people don't understand how these people are expressing bigotry against the very groups they claim to champion.

It's basically an admission on their part that they are incapable of creating any compelling original characters who are female or black, therefore they must parasitically feed on characters that are neither, that have already been created, and hope they can dupe, lure enough people with a bait-and-switch. Just make a quick buck one more time before people get wise.

It means they're denying the FBI and DOJ from having any right to look at copies of what they have or to find out any information as to what they are doing, until those committees decide to release results publicly. It's a separation of powers thing. If they were cooperating, then the FBI and DOJ could use that cooperation to keep tabs on what they had found out so far.

Bottom Line - Congress is now officially treating the FBI and DOJ as criminal conspirators who cannot be trusted with any confidential information.

This entire story is starting to have an April 1945 feel about it.

392 FYI, for those who read JJ's report below, no tsunami and no damage from the series of earthquakes last night in the Gulf of Alaska. UAF Earthquake Center reports two quakes of 7.9 magnitude, rather shallow (8 and 9 miles respectively) and several aftershocks in the range of 4.5. These were a long way from Kodiak Island, and pretty much in the middle of the gulf, so not too close to civilization.

Not to worry.

Personally, I slept through them, so they must not have shaken much here in Anchorage.

The Congress/FBI thing is very interesting. Yesterday it was limited to the three big House chairmen involved in the Mega-Scandal investigation refusing to share "the memo" with the FBI. Of course the memo is supposed to have been built on materials provided by the FBI, so the FBI's request was somewhat odd in itself.


If true that most comms have been cut with FBI, it is 1) extraordinary, and of course unprecedented in our history, indicating the gravity of the institutional collapse we have witnessed, and 2) ho-hum, routine.

417 "JFK was one of the worst Presidents we ever had"

Which raises the question of what would have happened if he'd been reelected in '64, or if Goldwater or another Republican could have beaten him. Most people assume he would have easily won, but keep in mind that the whole reason he went to Dallas was, as I understand, to mend a rift in the Texas Democratic party. So perhaps he was already getting concerned about his prospects?

424 I'm setting up to do a brake job, and I need to
clean up the calipers. Conventional wisdom has been to keep the brake
cleaner off any rubber, plastic, or painted parts. No problem and I've
always been very careful about that - but then I got a brake cleaner
that doesn't use a chloridated solvent and apparently it's a bit
murkier.



So, can one use a non-chloridated brake cleaner and not worry about
getting it on the rubber brake lines....? Anyone have any experience
with something like that?

Posted by: WitchDoktor, AKA VA GOP Sucks at January 23, 2018 10:28 AM (eytER)

The non-chlorinated brake cleaner is basically alcohol in a spray can. It won't harm the rubber parts. In fact methyl alcohol is the recommended solvent for cleaning hydraulic brake components.
But I have had no issues with using the chlorinated stuff, either, and I prefer it, because it cuts grease much better.
Just don't get either on the car's paint job. It probably won't cause damage, but if it does, dollars grow wings...

No, he wasn't in office long enough. The tragedy is that we'll never know.

He made a bad play in Cuba that was left over from Ike, then he made a good play in Cuba that kept us from going toe to toe with the Russkies with nuclear things. He dabbled in Viet Nam, nobody knows what he would have done, it was Johnson who got really stupid about it.

Consider the POV of the Dem Leadership:

The leaders are hunkering down in their bunkers, still professing confidence in victory. Enemy columns are coming in from all sides, defenses crumbling as the situation gets more and more desperate. All thoughts of new offensives have been given up as fighting to save what they still hold consumes every waking hour.

Meanwhile, the enemy gets bolder and bolder by the hour.

They know the situation has only one possible ending, but their ideology doesn't allow them to accept that conclusion yet, hence no plans are being made to deal with it when it comes.

The Morning Report 1/23/18

gman.jpg

Good morning kids. First, above the fold, reports are coming in of a massive earthquake hitting early this morning off the Alaskan coast near Kodiak Island, triggering a tsunami warning down to British Columbia and watches even further south towards the California Coast. No reports of damage or injuries yet, but an 8.2 magnitude quake is extremely powerful. More updates as and when they happen. Preemptive prayers up. Stay safe if you or loved ones are in the region.

Down here, the political earthquakes continue to hammer away at the foundations of our nation along two fault lines. First, more revelations from the Deep State and what is now sadly safe to call its front group, the FBI. Rogue agent/insurrectionist Peter Strzok and his adulterous girlfriend and colleague Lisa Page evidently spoke of setting up some sort of "secret society" the day after Trump's election. No word on exactly what they meant by that, but I'm sure it was in par with Spanky and Alfalfa forming the He-Man Woman-Hater's Klub. Also, current FBI Director Christopher Wray reportedly threatened to resign over pressure to shit-can Deep-Stater McCabe. If that's the case, then this is a sign for Wray himself to be shown the door.

The second major story is of course the epic failure of the Schumer-Shutdown. We have a number of links that deal with how this shakes out for DACA and Amnesty in general, both in the Democrats absolute intransigence on this issue, the hardcore Left base's incandescent rage at their party for what they perceive as a total cave to Trump and the GOP, the near civil war within that party between those who want to drive it even further left (if that is possible) and those who want to maintain the wafer-thin illusion of being "moderate," and how the GOP-e is still hell bent on opposing the American people and the President in their lust for cheap labor and to maintain their position as the sham opposition party for the Democrats.

Circling back to the American people, polls indicate that a shocking (I guess to the Media-Democrat Complex in and out of the Beltway) plurality of Americans not only oppose Amnesty but want a serious curb to even legal immigration. They know that this is the single issue that will decide the fate of this nation and its identity. In fact, indications are that Americans of black and even Latino heritage are solidly anti-Amnesty so this is yet another golden opportunity for the Golden Scalpweasel to gain inroads into these heretofore solidly Democrat voting blocs and another opportunity for the GOP to miss an opportunity to do the same, contrary to all their incessant kvetching about "Hispanic outreach to win elections" or some such dreck.

On the international front, VP Pence gave a fantastic speech in Israel's Knesset where he publicly proclaimed Jerusalem as Israel's capital, announced the speeding up of the process to move our embassy there by 2019 and the surprise announcement that President Trump will indeed decertify the Obama Iran Nuke sellout when it comes up for review next May, IIRC. In the comments yesterday, people were calling Pence boring, possibly the same people who complain about Trump tweeting and being crude. The only thing that matters to me, in the last analysis, is results. Whatever one thinks of Pence, or for that matter another name that has been bandied about as a possible future GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley, clearly being around Trump has been a very positive influence. Yes the two of them caved big time on RFRA and the BLM anti-Confederate cultural revolution. But I don't think that either of those should necessarily disqualify them in the future. And these two are burnishing their foreign policy chops and perhaps even their style/attitude in the way they treat the Media-Democrat-Leftist complex. This is indicative of another intangible that Trump has brought in his first year - fighting back for what you believe in and fighting back hard. But I digress...

France is charging an ISIS terrorist with plotting a major bomb attack, international NGOs are helping Haiti cause trouble with its relatively stable neighbor, the Dominican Republic, CIA chief Mike Pompeo is sounding alarm bells on the status of Whoa, Fat's! nuke arsenal and the Iranians are conducting large scale maneuvers and threatening US Navy ships.

Lastly, back at home, the President is leading the way in helping states cut off Planned Parenthood funding while (not linked here) the Utah legislature has introduced a bill to ban selective abortion of Downs Syndrome babies.

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

63 Are your traffic jams getting lighter?
If you take a train, does it seem more crowded than ever?
Is your small town now bursting at the seams with houses getting crammed into every available space?
Is your school budget increasing due to "overcrowding"?
Are the forests and farmlands of your youth now mostly "developed" due to crowding?
Are your water supplies now "strained" almost every summer?
Every spring do your streets get flooded because they've paved over too much of the ground cover?
Are the lines in your supermarket getting any shorter?
When you look at the night sky do you see stars, or just a glow from spreading megalopolis?

A country I grew up in of about 200 Million people is now one of "320 Million" and probably quite a bit more if all those "in the shadows" were fully counted.

Aside from the (enormous) issues of cultural assimilation (or lack thereof) our country has become way, way more crowded in a generation, to the point that most people would easily recognize the change, and not a good one.

We need an immigration pause. And, we can and should sell it to millenial "greens" and suburbanites on grounds of overcrowding as much as anything.

68 I take it the goal of firing McCabe, at Sessions' and Trump's insistence, was to prevent him from retiring with a pension. Because in March he's eligible for a full pension, and has already announced his plan to retire then.

I'm sorta NOT okay with that, since he's been convicted of no crime. Or even charged with one at this point. Yeah, I think he's dirty, and he definitely lied about campaigning for his wife, and he hid the donations to her campaign on his disclosure forms. Not to mention what he may have cooked up within this possible secret society.

So instead, how about reforming the pension plans so they can be clawed back upon a conviction for misdeeds in office?

And then charge that scrunt Lois Lerner with something. Anything. Stealing office supplies. Sucking as a human being. Aggravating my tranquility. The thought of her sucking down a phat gubmint pension paycheck for life makes me do that grrry hands thingy.

Oh, and good morning all.

Two country girls head into the big city, for the first time. They marvel at the shops, get themselves dolled up at the beauty parlor, and head over to the photo place. They're going to get their pitcher taken! First time ever!!

So as they're standing there, looking all pretty and stuff, the photographer sets up the camera, gets under the hood...

One of the sisters turns to the other and says "What dat man doing with his head in there up under dat sheet?"

The other girl says "He gonna focus!"

Yup. I also think they're a tool to see how effectively the MSM narrative is, which then gves them the ammo to report opinion as fact, as in:

1. MSM floods the zone with one of their stories, such as: Donald Trump drinks diet coke and sleeps in every morning.

2. Polls on the diet coke/sleeping stories show many Americans are concerned about Trump's health.

3. MSM reports as fact that Trump's health is threatening his presidency, people believe he is unfit to lead.

There is no way of knowing but one of my biggest fears was that PDT was going to "make deals" since that is what he does and he's not a political animal.

After a year, he has seen just how the Dems operate and how the GOP is anti his base, which means anti him.

I think and now believe PDT will do all he can with the power he has to prevent the GOP from stabbing us in the back.

Isn't the FBI law enforcement???

I work for the Fed Govt and it looks to me that some or all of the the FBI is totally rogue. Wray or Sessions should tell people that they will either have those messages on his desk, or a report on why they were deleted and who did it, by sundown. Tell them if they don't do it, they'll be sitting at a basement desk forever, starting tonight, and we'll get someone else to do it. And Wray and Sessions can send trusted managers to watch-over the work and bird-dog it. Bullshite if the above steps are not happening. No Civil Service rules stand in the way of orders like those.

So for instance, the company (GOPe/ deep state, shadowy oligarchs) wants open borders, so Pence would have been soft on the shut down, buckled. Trump handled Schemer with ease, or so it appears. Trump also had to handle the GOPe.

Pence has been supportive of Trump, but rather passively. We need seven more years of Trump to take down the globalist NWO efforts, which use the illegal invasion here and in Europe to create chaos and cause burdens inside communities. Some want cheap labor usre, but at the top they want to "balkanize" and break the American spirit.

The MSM has been covering for the DACA activists, bigly. They have gotten bolder over the past few months, such as with breaking in to Schumer's and McConnell's DC offices and refusing to leave, as well as yesterday's blocking of the Disney entrance. If people saw them, heard their demands - and the demands of their parent who created this mess, I would guess people would be far less sympathetic. Same goes if the news reported on the "dreamers" who break the law, which apparently is more than double the crime rate of US citizens in their age group.

And as a rule MSM and politicians intentionally compartmentalize these groups. They'll pitch immigration based on sob stories about people who just want a chance at the good life in America, but then never let you see how this impacts other pet causes like homelessness and pollution/environmental concerns. DO they ever talk about the hideous destruction along our southern border due to the waste the immigrants leave in their wake? Do they ever talk about the waste and disease at the homeless camps? Do they ever talk about how the millions of immigrants effects housing and resources like water in California? No. That's how they get higher poll numbers, by keep the narrative clean from any consequences of what they're pushing.

Your lemonade stand analogy is flawed. Polls are indeed intended to shape public opinion and not necessarily reflect it. And since they are a business that thrives both on money and the perception of credibility, they usually are much more accurate as an election draws nearer.

That said, last year, except maybe for the LA Times, every major pollster predicted Hillary in a landslide. Now, you can argue that it is because they were blind to their bias or they were consciously biased or even both. But they most certainly want an outcome and will do whatever they can to either weight the poll they way they want or phrase questions in such a way as to force people to answer them that yields the desire result.

Look at the media. They too are a business and yet the NFL, the network news and motion pictures are losing money and credibility like never before.

And yet, they persist. How's that for a lemonade stand?

On a trip to Oregon a couple years ago I become acquainted with the homeless problem there. Everywhere we went there seemed to be large numbers of what seemed to be mostly healthy, young and white people panhandling, often in groups. It seemed almost cultist and I got the feeling it was all very voluntary, or at least there was no effort or desire made to change their situation.

It really detracted from the place and became quite annoying after a few days. Especially their attitude and signs that constantly implied I had some moral obligation to help support their lifestyle choice. My wife was appalled and said she would never consider moving there, which were were before the visit.

Howling rage would be in 3 inch font at the top of all the newspapers and MSM news scrolls if Republican operatives had said "Let's form a Secret Society " to F up the new president and take him down, and then it was revealed that they actually took conrete, documented steps to do that, and then started deleting communications that showed they were doing it.

I mean WTF? Are there any Dems in congress that find this a wee bit unnerving and banana republic like? Are there Dems that are frightened by the precedent? Do any of these people think that the power to do this will not one day be swung around and aimed at them? Do they really want to be under the boot of these rogue agents? Cause lets face it, Bernie, Liawatha, and other low tier (Low T) Dems are on the block too, whether they know it or not. Everyone but the Clintons and Obama can be sacrificed.

But Bernie an Liawatha would have to move to the right and make peace with some of the centrist republicans to do that. Would they lose their seats as a result? Maybe. They are old too and I don't think they give a shit about anything more than 18 months out at any given moment.


But if some Low T Dem with a future not tied to the "Marxist Rage Machine" started to paint the picture that there is an out of control faction deep inside the DOJ and FBI that harms Dems and Reps alike in the long run, then maybe they could thread the needle. Someone is losing the democrat civil war and I don't think the winners win moving hard left. The Overton Window is shifting right, which is something I never thought I'd say.

And another big reason why Teddy Kennedy (may he rot in Hell) pushed for open borders is because as America changed and blacks gradually became more and more economically independent and integrated into American society, the Democrats would lose a huge constituency.

So, keep blacks beholden to Uncle Sugar and the Democrats with welfare and by destroying the family and then replace them with third-world-shitholers as the compassion of the Great Society kills off black America.

That's why DJT is such a refreshing change. Even if you ignore the stench of RINO that permeated both of the Bushes, they appeared extremely uncomfortable dealing with pressers and fuckhead Rove didn't see anything wrong with that so the MFM got to create the narrative. Mutt Rombley looked like a nervous Ward Cleaver in front of the camera, like he discovered Eddie Haskell put a turd in his pocket and he's hoping nobody can smell it before he gets offstage.

Trump relishes pointing out how dumb those idiots are and they prove it constantly by pushing back when they've got nothing. I honestly was afraid that something like this would never happen and the country would get flushed down the shitter.

I agree with that, and if the affair did in fact compromise either of the two from a security point of view that just further points to the incompetence of the FBI to police their own.

What I do not care about is if the two were getting it on, and how it affected (or not) a marriage. None of my business really.

true, but as with the pee pee story, sometimes the salacious content is what actually carries the message, makes it go viral.

The average listener needs the soap opera, and in the end the numbed American needs to feel they are the jilted lover of the deep state cheaters ... "you said you loved me", as they angrily turn on their abusers. It already started to some degree as Hillary stole it from Bernie, and now Schumer let "them" down.

But the abused don't yet seem the real effort (by Merkel, EU, globalists) to destroy "the West". The general population does not want to accept such vast deep state conspiracy. Normalcy bias, cognitive dissonance, brainwashed for decades ... whatever, it is a shock to the system.

449 Are Strzok and Girlfriend traitors?



A Traitor is defined by Merriam Webster as:

1. one who betrays another's trust or is false to an obligation or duty

2. one who commits treason


The Constitution gives a very exacting definition to the word "Treason" in Article III section 3:

Treason
against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against
them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No
Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two
Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

Under definition #1 of the word "Traitor" they certainly qualify. Under definition 2 (the legal definition) they don't.

So morally they are "Traitors" legally they are not.




incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

So they don't exactly qualify on the dictionary grounds. However they have violated

The buzz words "civil rights of our time", or any facsimile thereof, are just their Pavlov's dog's salivating. The words are meant to rile up. Nothing more. Illegals do not have or deserve American "civil rights."

480 Re the interviewing of Sessions by Mueller:

I have some sympathy for those who are concerned with the precedent that prosecution of high officers of the previous administration could set, regardless of their guilt. I suspect that concern is common among the GOP.

But President Trump needs to send the clear signal that any prosecution of current administration officers by the agents of a previous administration will instantly remove any such reservations.

481 Greetings:

And speaking about Alaskan earthquakes, I recently read "The Great Quake" about the one back in 1964. The author was a NY Times writer so he didn't notice the parallels between the emergence of the "plate tectonics" geological science at that time and today's Global Climate Warming Change.

Back in 1964 the geological science establishment (maybe 97% of it) fought tooth and nail against the plate tectonics cabal only to be proven wrong.

Quotes of The Day

Quote I

I believe in immigration reform. What if I persuaded my caucus to say I’m going to shut the government down, I’m going to not pay our bills unless I get my way. It’s a politics of idiocy, of confrontation, of paralysis.”Sen. Charles Schumer (Hypocrite-New York)


Quote II

"What they [Republicans] are saying to the American people tonight is ‘maybe we have lost the presidential election, maybe we've lost seats in the Senate and in the House. It doesn't matter! We can now bring the government to a shutdown–throw some 800,000 hard working Americans out on the street, and we are going to get our way no matter what."Sen. Bernie Sanders (Hypocrite-VT)


Quote III

“Today is a terrible day. A terrible day for the millions of working families in this country. . . . A terrible day for millions of people who just want to get on with their lives and not have Congress cost them even more money.”Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)


Quote IV

“In rare circumstances, the aggravated nature of the crime alone can provide a valid basis for denying parole, even when there is strong evidence of rehabilitation and no other evidence of current dangerousness.”Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA)

Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls. It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world. Just ask the NHS.

Women who identify as men are not being routinely offered potentially life saving NHS screening for breast and cervical cancer, amid fears it might offend them it is claimed.

However men living as women are being invited for cervical smear tests even though they do not have a cervix, an official guidebook states.

Will the flu be detected before you are struck with it? AI may diagnose flu before it strikes.

A study published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B took 16 healthy volunteers and injected them, at different times, with both a placebo and a type of E. coli bacteria that causes flu-like symptoms. The volunteers, who did not know which injection they had just received, were photographed two hours after each shot. These photographs were then shown to 62 participants who were asked to judge whether the person in the picture was healthy or sick. These participants had to make the judgement after only viewing the photo for five seconds.

Will trips to Walgreens or CVS be a thing of the past? In the future you could use 3D printing to make your own drugs.

Forget those long lines at the pharmacy: Someday soon, you might be making your own medicines at home. That’s because researchers have tailored a 3D printer to synthesize pharmaceuticals and other chemicals from simple, widely available starting compounds fed into a series of water bottle–size reactors. The work, they say, could digitize chemistry, allowing users to synthesize almost any compound anywhere in the world.

“It could become a milestone paper, a really seminal paper,” says Fraser Stoddart, a chemist and chemistry Nobel laureate at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, who was not involved with the work. “This is one of those articles that has to make [people] sit up and take notice.”

We do live in interesting times. The Far Left nibbles around the edges of the Left.

Speaking at the University of Michigan on the apparent benefits of life in the Chi post-graduation, Emanuel’s storied poise was dealt a blow by protesters scornful of his controversial plan to spend $95 million on a new police academy on the city’s West Side.

A 45-second video is making its way across the Twitter-tinged ether of the internet showing Emanuel’s composure slip when presented with the opposition.

Two protesters in the crowded Ann Arbor auditorium interrupt Emanuel’s scripted remarks by shouting:

Money for kids, not for cops, no cop academy!

The protesters also note that Chicago is “$600 million in deficit,” in an apparent attempt to highlight the controversial nature of massive spending on behalf of Chicago’s notoriously corrupt police force.

And why do people like Bruce and Nellie Ohr still have jobs at my expense? And Peter Strozk and Lisa Page?

Why are you accepting of the FBI saying they "can't retrieve" 5 months of critical texts between Strozk and Page? That's insulting and anyone w/ 2 brain cells knows they can be retrieved.

As my elected representative I'd like an answer, if you could be bothered. You pretend you are a conservative Republican, why do you not act like one?

104 I'm confused by the whole Chelsea Manning thing. Wasn't s/he dishonorably discharged? If so, s/he's no longer in the military. But doesn't being dishonorably discharged preclude you from being able to vote much less run for office? And of course if s/he hasn't been discharged yet, s/he's still in the military -- in which case s/he can't run for office. So whether s/he's still in or not, s/he shouldn't be able to run for office.

Wednesday was sleepover at Roni's. Joyce told me that "the sleepover was fabulous. She is fabulous and so is her husband Alan."

And Roni confirmed it:

"The sleepover was wonderful -absolutely wonderful -we had a fabulous time. She stayed till about noon the next day."

Which is good, because Friday was exercise with Jess day:

"Joyce did aerobics while I swam. Then we took soup to a friend who just had rotated cuff surgery. It was s great day."

So, exercise **and** a mitzvah - Sweet!

In charge of the naval component of that attack was Admiral Vernon, earlier successful at Portobello (namesake of the famous roads in London and Edinborough). Despite the failure at Cartagena, Lawrence remained a supporter of Vernon. He gave the name Mount Vernon to his estate before passing it along to George.

203 Iron Mike is totally right. I was just about to write that one up.
People in "postwar" houses think they have "plaster" walls, but, plasterboard. Better than pulp-board, but, not the same.

Some of those older lath-and-plaster assemblies have metal grid in them, or real horsehair. All of them have three different layers, and consistencies, of plaster. It was an art. They are very substantial. And will drive you nuts.

Some other things that will screw up electronic and magnetic sensors? In my house I have some recycled 2x4's which are two inches. By four inches. Oak. In many places they are exactly on 16 inch centers, so all you have to do is pre-drill every nail hole. In the part that was going to be "just" the garage, the spacing, um, varied a little. Large dense wood responds differently to a densitometer than sundried "SPF."

Sometimes the last SOB who was in there, check your notes to see if it was you, missed the stud with a nail or screw, or 2 or 3, and just left them in. If you use a magnetic detector, you will miss by exactly the same margin.

232 203 Iron Mike is totally right. I was just about to write that one up.
People in "postwar" houses think they have "plaster" walls, but, plasterboard. Better than pulp-board, but, not the same.

Some of those older lath-and-plaster assemblies have metal grid in them, or real horsehair. All of them have three different layers, and consistencies, of plaster. It was an art. They are very substantial. And will drive you nuts.

Some other things that will screw up electronic and magnetic sensors? In my house I have some recycled 2x4's which are two inches. By four inches. Oak. In many places they are exactly on 16 inch centers, so all you have to do is pre-drill every nail hole. In the part that was going to be "just" the garage, the spacing, um, varied a little. Large dense wood responds differently to a densitometer than sundried "SPF."

Sometimes the last SOB who was in there, check your notes to see if it was you, missed the stud with a nail or screw, or 2 or 3, and just left them in. If you use a magnetic detector, you will miss by exactly the same margin.
Posted by: Stringer Davis at January 22, 2018 10:52 PM (H5rtT)


The aggregate in my middle layer of plaster has a high mineral content. Plays hell with WIFI. I ended up pulling cable hither and yon to set up access points.

Mom's house is old. The addition is post Civil War. Original part of the house dates to 1830s. 18x18x30" quarried sandstone blocks for the foundation, floor joists are 12 inch logs hewn flat on the top side.

Studs are black walnut. Sheesh.

Put a new floor in her kitchen (over the log joists). Boy, was that ever so much fun getting it flat.

250 I've built a few kitchens, and always beefed up the wall cabs hanging arrangment by cutting away the sheetrock between studs, installing 2x4 nailers, then screwing the rock back on.

With that, we can screw the wall cabs up on a count and spacing we want, no matter the cab size.

And always used the specialty cab hanger screws made for the purpose. Definitely not sheetrock screws.

But that's the installation-half part of it. The cabs are either built with nailers added to their backs, high and low, or with full-thickness backs, like 5/8 or 3/4 inch.

And that's my carpentry advice for the blog tonight.

251 Sometimes the oak-stud finders and the black walnut-stud finders sit down with a bottle of pretty good whiskey and co-miserate. And sometimes they don't get back up.

BIL bought the family farm, out in the real Black Swamp, and has been in a tizzy ever since. When he had the foundations re-done, he wanted rid of those quarried blocks. His wife did not. I had to hurt him pretty bad to hang onto those. He had a bid from "his guy" to lay them into a loose retaining wall for $10K. I told him I'd do it for bourbon money, if he'd help. Then I told him what he needed was a Mexican. He thought that was a racist joke, until he met a Mexican (retired from the GM plant, been in the county about as long as we have). Now he has a beautiful wall, a new "his guy," and a steady stream of people driving up the side road to see that "Mexican stone work." I razz him about that pretty good. Cost about $1200.

Now he's worked his way up to the 3rd story, where wife found that the big attic dorm room has real hand-hewn 8x8's, mortise-and-tenon with wood pegs, and actual brick laid up as the firestop/insulation. She wants to save it all, and I'm afraid I'm on her side here. We're going to need a "dendro-chronologist" on this job.

280 I worked on a job for just a couple of days in North Carolina one time, when my folks lived in the piedmont. English guy, retired British Army (Uhuru Rebellion and Malaya!) was rebuilding an antebellum manse. Among many things we had to talk about, he said the first thing you had to do to restore one of those houses was to find another one in bad enough shape that it had no historic listings, and buy that one to use to make new building materials.

I learned an awful lot about historic restoration in just a couple days. Pretty much decided that like so many other interests I had, it made a better hobby than a living.

It's interesting but between the commercials and repeating what they've already done after each commercial break, the show is probably just 17 minutes long!

I learned in the old houses. I'll never forget the day I had to learn how to seriously plaster. Beautiful old house we got called in to fix, because the electricians were the fucking 3 stooges. They blasted holes 1foot X 1foot in a ton of walls for electrical boxes, and left the boxes just hanging by the wires. These arrogant bastards had the balls to cut big squares through original hardwood floors with a sawzall. They left entire walls looking like somebody got thrown into them. It took a month and half to put it back together.

I actually have ancient molding planes, so I could somewhat reproduce old moldings. We had a backroom loaded with old original moldings, and that saved my ass a shit ton of times. A crime what some people did to old houses.

But doesn't being dishonorably discharged preclude you from being able to vote much less run for office? And of course if s/he hasn't been discharged yet, s/he's still in the military -- in which case s/he can't run for office. So whether s/he's still in or not, s/he shouldn't be able to run for office.

About 10 years ago, when my car was in the shop, I took the bus and a young guy got out and asked the bus driver - something, but it was entirely unintelligible. The black driver asked him to repeat it and again, neither the bus driver nor I (I was sitting right at the front) could make heads or tails of it. After repeating himself about 5 times, the dude finally took out a scrap of paper and wrote "Whole Foods" on it. I asked him where he was from and he said France. I know the frogs don't pronounce the "h" but I had no idea "Whole Foods" was such a tongue twister for them.

Yeah, but the article I mentioned said that the gene editing technology was invented in the US, but American doctors can't use it because of FDA red tape. Chinese doctors are meanwhile forging ahead with it.

373 I just had to get a new fake "knockoff" hub for the American Racing chrome-reverse on my 66 El Camino. Cost about 50 bucks it did, and had been sitting around Coker's warehouse long enough that I had to re-glue the little crossed-flags emblem to the center. I was awfully glad to get it, though.

If I'd broken it myself, I'd have bitched to myself. But no, I'd taken it to a buddy, a legendary hot rod and drag race guy, so that I wouldn't screw it up. You'd think a guy would learn from these experiences sooner or later, but, no.

386 I know there are many of the Horde that loves MLB and is looking forward to the season (as am I). Here's some links and a rant for y'all. The 'Baseball Hall of Fame Tracker' is an on-line, excel spread sheet that shows the sentiment of the chance the player has to get voted in to the HOF (2018 version).

For those that don't know, the HOF voting is cast by qualified members of the BBWAA (Baseball Writers Association of America)- The player must garner at least 75% of the vote to gain entrance into the HOF.

(Rant)- And, yeah, the majority of the MLB journalists are cut from the same cloth as their leftist, MFM, hack brethren, only worse. In an ironic twist, they believe to be relevant as the gatekeeper of the sport all while their Marxist peers of the Pravda news typically treat them as hoi polloi.

Example: You can't find any article or analysis about Curt Schilling that doesn't mention his 'outrageous political opinions' or at best rate him as 'controversial'. It's actually used as reasoning why Schilling is non-deserving of HOF entrance. Schilling is in his 6th year of eligibility for the HOF (original voting). He has only received about 64% support. For Schilling not to have made the HOF on the first ballot is total bullshit.

Last of rant, then links: So, for all the animosity rightfully thrown at the NFL, the political correctness and leftism does permeate in all sports at all levels.

392 You guys like superheroes, right? Here's a kind of funny story about a classic superhero, Supergirl.

She was slapped together at DC because they caught wind that someone else had figured out a loophole in copyright law. DC had trademarked Superman, but that wouldn't keep some small-press publisher from making a female version of the same character named Supergirl. This is also why Hawkgirl, Spider-Woman and She-Hulk were created later.

Anyway, Supergirl's birth name was Kara, and she was taken in as a foster daughter by the Danvers family. Her "earth name" was Linda Lee (she had that L.L. thing going on, just like pretty much everybody who was important in Superman's life). Incidentally, this resulted in Kara/Cara becoming a semi-popular girls' name in real life. This name did not exist before Supergirl.

Marvel Comics later created Ms. Marvel. Her real name was Carol Danvers; this was obviously a tribute to Supergirl. Ms. Marvel was Marvel's equivalent of Supergirl, after all, and she was named accordingly, having a similar first name and having the same last name of Supergirl's adoptive family.

Well, now we have the Supergirl TV show. The producers of that show thought Linda Lee was a boring name, so she instead goes by Kara Danvers, making her the only character ever to be named after herself, and also the only character ever named after a knock-off of herself.

394 From the photo, it appears the cabinet back was adequately screwed to the framing; the cabinet itself came apart where the back was attached to the carcase. The load of all the dishes, etc., was too much for the glue and/or staples, and the cabinet sheared away from the back in one piece (well, until it hit the floor). A 1x4 inner rail at the top and a 1x2 at the bottom could have prevented this; all the cabinets I've built this way (over almost 40 years) have stayed where I installed them.

As for finding studs, even with plaster walls: start at an electric outlet and try first to the left of the box. Most electricians are right-handed (most everyone, for that matter) and it's easier to nail a box to the right side of a stud, so most boxes will have a stud to the immediate left. Other studs will be found at 16" c/c (at least in most houses built since 1900 or so) from the first, so you're likely to find one from 14-1/2" - 16" to the right of the left edge of the outlet box.

I haven't met many 'celebrities' in my life, but I do have a Telly Savalas non-story story. (My biggest 'thrill' was, while in high school, having dinner with Dr. J at a private house while Dr. J was with the Virginia Squires of the ABA.)

One year, I was at my ex's office Christmas party at a hotel on Central Park South. It had a small u-shaped bar. I was early and thirsty. So I stopped by the bar to get a drink. At one end, against the wall, sitting by himself nursing a drink was Telly Savalas. I looked at him, saying to myself, 'That's Telly Savalas'. So I lifted my drink and nodded to him, in effect saying 'I know who you are'. He lifted his drink and nodded back, in effect saying, 'Yeah, good for you, thanks for not bothering me'. I then left the bar and without any words spoken between us, but having had a conversation none-the-less. Like I said, a Telly Savalas non-story story.

Why don't more Vet's specialize in Canine Medicine?

Around here in the Kingdom, Vet's specialize in Cows, Horses...farm animals.....an They're the ones to call for that......as is expected, givin it's a rural, farming demo......

But, specialized Canine Vet's are hard to find......and given how many folks have dogs......a Dog centric Vet would be incredibly lucrative and sought after.....

The stuff I see on Harleys done by supposed professionals is un frigging real. I'll go out on a limb and say 75% of the Harley wrenches shouldn't be touching bikes. I found at least 8 or 9 fuckups on this last motor I took apart a few weeks ago, and it was rebuilt only 2000 miles ago. He brought it in because it blew a head gasket, and that's because the studs started pulling out of the case from being over torqued. As I got farther and farther in I kept finding more and more stupidity. The motor was a time bomb, the blown head gasket probably saved it's ass.

Last week was some custom bike, it looked like it was wired by a 3 year old. Wires twisted together and taped. Nothing on it was tight. The intake manifold was ready to fall off. the main alternator wire was bare from rubbing on the frame and started melting, and burned out the charging system. Back wheel was crooked, and on and on.

lots of people touching tools who shouldn't.

408 Here's a question that's been bugging me for a few days:

- Regular gasoline is car food. You put it in the car to make the stupid light turn off.
- Premium gasoline is for fancy-pants high compression engines and prevents detonation. Use it if your manual says to (I wouldn't be surprised if modern ECUs can safely adjust for regular, but just use premium or else why did you get that car in the first place).
- Using premium in an engine that isn't rated to require it isn't dangerous, but there's no benefit to it so just save the money.

What is mid-grade for? I've never heard of a car that took anything but regular or premium.

425 When it comes to city vets, they work on dogs and cats and now exotic birds, too, like African Greys and other large parrots. There are now a lot of 'bird' people out there, along with the cat and dog people. My friend just lost the last of her birds, a 19-year-old cockatiel. But African Greys and the like have a life-span of 75 years and up. People who have such pets have to have provisions for them in their wills as most will outlive their owners. There's a lot of bird rescues around now for such birds as well as for mean birds who could take off multiple fingers with their large and powerful beaks. Birds pretty much bond to one human just like many dog breeds do (German shepherds come to mind).

When he started his practice in the early '60's it was probably half suburban cats-and-dogs and half large animals from the surrounding farms, but over the years the farms slowly disappeared. In the late '70's, after getting injured once again by a cow, my mother told him he had to give up the farm animals.

He developed a reputation as a bulldog specialist. I don't think it was anything he sought, but he must have been successful with one bulldog client and then had other vets sending their bulldog clients to him.

437 I find that my cars prefer mid-grade during really cold spells - like we just had. They just don't want to start as easily or run as smoothly on regular when it's 15-20 degrees or less.
Posted by: cfo mom at January 23, 2018 01:04 AM (RfzVr)


Interesting. I hadn't considered trying that. Mine starts fine, and I let it idle until the tachometer goes under 1000 when it's cold, but there's always that cranky rattle for the first mile or so. Starting the Jetta diesel was fun in the winter. With the bracklebracklebrackleBRAKBRAKHRRRM and the cloud of blue smoke, I should have invested in a leather helmet and a ridiculous handlebar mustache and an effete British accent. Maybe some .303 Brownings.

It looks like we're not getting a daytime high below 30 for the next month at least, though, so I don't know if I should bother trying midgrade the next time I fill up or if it wouldn't make any difference. Daytime highs of 30 are like playing winter in easy mode. It's almost cheating.

Append, or prepend like a cover sheet? Either way, there are free options, and the really good ones can be scripted to grind through a whole directory full of files.

If it's just a few, and the contents aren't sensitive, there are lots of free pdf processor websites too. They won't watermark the documents either (except maybe adding a line in the document info metadata).

Yes. In the summer, when I make pitchers of iced coffee, I've been known to thrown in some cocoa powder into the ground coffee 'for a change of pace.' Although I probably wouldn't use a cocoa mix because of added sugar and would stick with unsweetened cocoa powder.

A-10s are sexy so I followed the link. I like the story. I think if we still have the blueprints we should make more of them and if we don't have the blueprints we should reverse engineer them and make more.

But why are we still risking American lives in Afghanistan? It's been seventeen years. Win, lose, draw, quit, do something. My kids are not military but they're that age. Why are people that age facing death in that stupid place?

Studs:
I take my fist and pound on the wall and can usually find pretty close to the stud. There's a difference in sound and feel between the hollow area and where the stud is. Then I take a short 2" or so finishing nail to find the *exact* center of the stud. If you don't feel resistance after the first inch, there's no stud. Then using a long level pencil a line down the wall from that center. If you're hanging cabinets that cost a couple hundred dollars apiece - no excuse for failure.

I suspect the installer could not hit the stud on the left side from inside of the cabinet and thought the two - one in the center, one to the right - would do the job. Perhaps if the cabinet frame was made of actual wood and not particle board that would have worked. But the combination of weight and cheap particle board was too much.

Only answer is to open up the wall and tie in a short section of stud where the screw can hit from inside the cabinet -- or buy better cabinets.

Looks like cheap pine on the fronts of the cabinets and particle board for the rest. That was 'the look' for a while. A lighter look. Ignoring the fact that dark wood is the stronger wood. People with dark wood cabinets where considered old and unfashionable.

But you wait long enough styles change and sure enough dark wood cabinets are a good thing again. Fashions change, quality doesn't.

Meghan McCain to Ana "Bob Menendez Is Family" Navarro: It's Kind of Hard to Understand Why You Still Claim to be a Republican

Time was that someone could (and many did) ask this of Meghan McCain.

But that was a while ago.

Now she's a fairly mainstream member of the party and she's curious why Ana Navarro still markets herself as a "Republican."

While the rest of the panel tried to place the blame for the shutdown on Republicans, McCain argued that the Democrats caused it by trying to attach DACA to a spending bill.

"Plain party politics," she said. "There's another month to figure out DACA -- they"re attaching it to a spending bill."

"I understand that DACA is a very emotional issue at this point but most Republicans are on my side on this one, Ana, and it's difficult for me to understand sometimes why you still consider yourself a Republican," McCain said.

She needs to ask Jen Rubin the same question.

By the way, federal prosecutors have announced their intent to re-try Bob Menendez on the bribery and corruption case which resulted in a mistrial last time.

"Republican" Ana Navarro has fund-raised for this corrupt Democrat and says he's a "member of the family" just because he's Hispanic.

Which is, of course, racist.

48 Schumer quickly became a punching bag for the right and left.

"It's official: Chuck Schumer is the worst negotiator in Washington - even worse than Trump," said Murshed Zaheed, political director for the liberal group CREDO.

"Today's cave by Senate Democrats - led by weak-kneed, right-of-center Democrats - is why people don't believe the Democratic Party stands for anything," said Stephanie Taylor, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. "These weak Democrats hurt the party's brand for everyone and make it harder to elect Democrats everywhere in 2018."

Frankly, this is the problem with women, which whom I sympathize. Throughout human history, they've survived through social contacts, as they had to, with most of their lives consumed with child bearing and rearing.

That leaves them ill-prepared to look at the herd and say "Fuck you, that's what I think, and if you don't like it, fuck you again." I call it the "Savonarola dipsy-doodle."

55 And since this issue often sees this other terminological outrage, let's address that too.


So-called press stories routinely refer to public figures supporting - sit down for this - enforcement of immigration law as "hardliners".


Are people who support enforcement of environmental laws and regs ever described as "hardliners"? How about tax laws? Patents, anti-trust laws, obligations of bonds and other financial instruments?


Of course not. A small but key example of how utter distortion of facts and frameworks disfigures and cripples America. Because the MSM *still* entirely controls the idiot marinade in which vast numbers of apolitical Americans soak.
