Fusion GPS Officials Plead the Fifth Rather Than Answer Who Paid for the Trump Dossier

The Salon Hot 25 applauds their brave stance in favor of the First and Fifth Amendments.

Actually, they refused to answer any questions -- but it seems that it's the identity of the patron of the PeePeeParty Dossier that's the secret they're most keen to protect.

Two top officials with Fusion GPS, the company responsible for the creation of the so-called "Trump dossier," appeared before the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, but invoked their Fifth Amendment rights and didn't answer questions, according to a lawyer who represents them.

Peter Fritsch and Thomas Catan, two partners in Fusion GPS, presented themselves to the committee to satisfy a subpoena, but went no further, as was expected.

...

Fusion's lawyer, Josh Levy, called the use of a subpoena an "indignity."

"This disparate treatment is an abuse of power and unethical," Levy continued in a statement. "Nor is it a necessary tool for Congress to use in order to obtain information. Even the Senate Watergate Committee spared witnesses this indignity."

If the DOJ grants them use immunity (that nothing they say can be used against them in court), then this dodgy claim of the Fifth Amendment is taken away from them, and they can be put in jail on contempt for refusing to answer further.

Now, what might that mean? I know that for some damn reason, when a witness is going to take the 5th, the committee sometimes allows the witness's lawyer to make that assertion behind the scenes and the witness is spared the "indignity" of publicly taking the 5th. But, that's just a nicety. It produces the same amount of info: fuck all, as the Brits would say.

So what are these alternate tools to get the info? Tune into CNN and find out what the anonymous sources are saying?

A company has no 5th amendment rights. However, since the individuals who acted for the company do, as long as they face possible prosecution for participating in the criminal acts, they can assert the 5th amendment. If a prosecutor wants to get at the company, he either has to find evidence elsewhere or give use immunity to one or more employees who will implicate the company.

110 Hey everybody.

Sorry to threadjack, but one of the things that enrages me about the whole TWC scandal is that Harv actually had an "above the law" standard about SH written into his contract. I'd like to see the EEOC go after companies that try to get away with that bullshit.

If Nerdy Ned can get fired for asking Busty Brenda for a date, why not Harv?

(Okay, now everybody explain to me how (a) I'm hopeless, (b) will obviously never be a CEO and (c) don't get the power dynamics between men and women.)

Trump Signals He Won't Support Obamacare Insurance Company Subsidies Deal

Meanwhile, most of the GOPe Senators the #SmartSet #NeverTrumpers #SalonHot25 are so enamored with are totally on board with the Alexander/Murray "deal."

Lindsey Graham being a notable and surprising exception -- he says he wants to repeal Obamacare, not prop it up.

I thought I saw FoxNews report Trump signaled that he wanted more reforms, but I don't see this in this article, and i can't swear to my recollection's accuracy. Especially after having my mind blown by that Hillary Clinton reality disjunction.

Trump wrote on Twitter that he was "supportive" of the deal's architect, Senate Health Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), as well as the Senate process, but said he would "never support bailing out" insurance companies, saying they "have made a fortune" under ObamaCare.

Trump stopped short of saying he would veto the measure, however.

Speaking to reporters later Wednesday, Trump said "if something can happen, that's fine, but I won't do anything to enrich the insurance companies."

91 Trump's initial mistake was taking the Republicans at their word. All he had to do was set up a situation where Obamacare was going to fail without immediate congressional action. Now he gets to detail the terms of saving Obamacare. He'll roll these guys back and forth, and each tick of the clock is Obamacare one step closer to the grave. Dems have to come to the table. Repubs have to listen to Trump. The end is likely to be not great, but much better.

He needs to start collecting all the fines and taxes in Obamacare. And start forcing any exempt groups (like congress) onto the program. Just follow the law and this thing will tear itself apart.

94 It is starting to look like Trump has outmaneuvered everyone on the ACA --- kick the illegal subsidy prop out, and then not approve anything which doesn't move us to a freer, more sustainable system. He can scuttle bad ideas with just a tweet.

Trump doesn't have to put his prestige behind anything and he can watch the Congress twist in the wind as they are forced to come up with something.

There is a good Downfall video to be made here where Bannon is on the outside, and Trump is on the inside providing a pincer movement against the GOPe. Go ahead and go to heroic lengths to save the ACA and see what it gets you guys. Alexander is point man because his career is over and he is not running again. But there is only so much room in that bunker.

And I was able to skip the humongous Christmas section (which I suspect they have up all year 'round) and two, count 'em, "craft" sections. The craftiest I get is right here on the HQ.

From what the Daily Mail says, the Church of England has given the official (but not public) okay to the divorcee part.

Now, William has two heirs, and a third on the way, and they'll probably have their own children before it gets down the line that far, so there is practically zero chance Harry would ascend to the throne. If there was, there might still be a problem with a divorcee and an American.

They say QE has completely rethought the whole traditional thing, what with the disaster with her children's marriages. The grand young 'uns seem to be doing much better.

Normally I am quite pessimistic, but honestly? Given that:
1. The Obamunist "quantitatively eased" the money supply so much,
2. The Donald appears to be serious about scrapping Obamunist "Care" and tax reform,
3. In general, the Obamunist edicts, from coal mining to mandatory birth control in health insurance, are being eliminated, which gives business people hope,

Dean Wormer and thelms are correct, I think.

Much as with the "Dreamers" situation, circumstances and politics are just about entirely in Trump's favor here. In terms of leverage, process, negotiation, outcomes.

I think the administration should have been strategically using the f**k out of the incredible discretion given to the HHS secretary to bring the pain, bring the dissolution, inherent in O-care. From the inauguration, really(recall there was one EO - possibly the first Trump signed - formalizing the non-enforcement of the John Roberts Tax). Even in the run-up to the McCain Treachery, I'd have preferred the admin. to bring the heat on everyone by letting the law's unsustainable self-contradictions start to shine through.

Anyway, here we are. I think Trump should use not just the leverage that the subsidy issue gives him (that he gave himself, with his latest EO), but the law's own written-in discretion. Bring the pain, end the waivers, make as many as people as possible luxuriate in the vile idiocy that is O-care. And let both parties writhe and come begging for mercy.

193 Anyway, here we are. I think Trump should use not just the leverage that the subsidy issue gives him (that he gave himself, with his latest EO), but the law's own written-in discretion. Bring the pain, end the waivers, make as many as people as possible luxuriate in the vile idiocy that is O-care. And let both parties writhe and come begging for mercy.

We tried an easy transition and the problem is too many people were just fine with their heavily subsidized health insurance.

Once the Free Shirt Army starts paying out the nose, I see many fence sitters finally getting the picture.

And ObamaCare is totally on Obama and Democrats, the idea that Trump not continuing a subsidy the courts have even said is illegal is not going to absolve Democrats.

225
Maritime, no comprendo. The number of people ruinously affected by O-care (individual and some small group markets) exceeds those on subsidized plans (up to a third of those may be O-care "refugees" who were priced out of their market but finagled income levels to get the subsidy - I know several in this category). There was no political imperative for O-care - despite nearly two decades of Dem pushing (it all started with a special election to the Senate in PA, in the early 90s). It's not "popular" now. It's small, and shrinking.

The problem is people like you, and the 80%+ of the market, have never really felt the effects. I see the hilarious comments here about "12% increase!! eleventy!!" and just shake my head. As I say, if people on group/employer plans felt 1/3 the pain of the others, the thing would have been repealed within a few months of the hammer falling in Jan. 2014.

Hillary's Closest Hollywood Confidante and Galpal, Designing Women Inflicter Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, Knew About Harvey Weinstein's Predations

And if she knew -- Hillary's closest Hollywood confidante -- then Hillary knew.

But Hillary says she never heard of these harassments and assaults.

How to square these incompatible accountings of reality?

Well, I have only one thought. It's a hateful thought, and one I don't speak lightly, but, if you'd like to hear it, please follow the advise I offer below first.

Look, I know the last two years have been stressful for many, as many of us have lost faith in the old verities that kept us moored (we thought) to a stable reality.

What follows may be so shocking that you doubt my sanity -- and then, after hearing it, you may doubt your own.

So in the interest of your own psychological health, I'd like you all to practice some calming deep breathing (breathe in four counts through your nose, breathe all air out for four counts, then hold on your empty lungs for four counts) for six or eight repetitions to calm yourselves before you read the next line.

Have you gone through six or eight repetitions? Can you feel your heart rate having slowed?

Well, I hope so.

Because this is the only possibility I can imagine:

Hillary Clinton may not be entirely truthful with us sometimes.

There, I said it. I hate even writing those words. It's like uttering a mutating blasphemy against the righteous solidity of what we take to be reality.

But -- fears about your congnitive dissonance aside -- I thought you need to know from me first, in a comforting #SafeSpace where you may discuss this psychic assault on the core of your being with other victims of catastrophic revelations.

Now, I hate having exposed you to that one shock, and I hate even more exposing you to this next one: The Frank Guistra/Clinton Foundation/Kazahkastan government/Uranium One deal was absolutely shot through with filthy corruption at every level and at every step,* and, even more incredibly, Barack Obama and his minions knew about it but chose to cover it up.

Let me say this to you guys for once:

You've done a great job just processing that Reality Shattering revelation, so I think you should all take an early day.

Just try to find a place of peace and #Safety and find some center.

Namaste. Prayer-hands. The broken light in me salutes the broken light in you.


* Seriously, once you have regathered the broken pieces of your mind into a shape roughly resembling their former configuration, read that piece from start to finish. It's either 1) worse than you remember or 2) worse than you ever knew.

Meanwhile, the Salon Hot 25 still wants her as their president.

38 Look, when people talk about people to other people, they don't usually accuse the guy of being a rapist, murdering bastard with a fetish for ficus.

They usually say something about not being alone with the guy, and even that is a bit too much, so they have to confuse the issue a bit by saying, take someone with you for support.

Otherwise, they might get sued for defamation.

Like, my Uncle Bob. Everybody has an Uncle Bob because otherwise, no one would ever understand the saying 'Bobs your uncle.'

Uncle Bob was 'odd'. He was a 'funny' uncle, but he never told jokes and didn't talk much. So as a kid, I really didn't understand the comments.

So ya, I never knew that Uncle Bob was a pedophile serial killer of small boys, because we just never talked about it.

See the Daily Mail: Lana Del Rey. She included the line "Harvey's in the sky with diamonds" in her song "Cola". Uncle Harvey insisted she change that.

Another line goes "Let's take a ride .... I know your wife and she won't mind".

She now denies she ever had a relationship. She says why, I had a boyfriend at the time.

54 Funny, Ace. ;^) I didn't even need deep breathing or yoga to process those two ideas.

And BTW, I've always hated that phrase "Namaste" when it's used by people who aren't Hindu. I've been told that besides meaning "I bow to you." in can also mean, "The God in me bows to the God in you." Since it's unclear with some of these people (who are as Hindu as apple pie) as to what God they're talking about, since they're Atheists it just sounds to me like cultural virtue signalling. In fact the Hindu people I now don't use it with me. I mean, they may use it with Hindu people but not with me.

Yoga is good stretching, and sometimes some good ass-kicking humiliation/reminder on ab strength and balance, but I am a blasphemous cold-blooded bah-humbug on all the "namaste" crap. When everyone puts their hands together and bows when the instructor says the "instructor in me salutes the instructor in you" crap, I look around and through olympian discipline stifle a laugh.

Think someone needs to come up with Gun Yoga, or something, to offend the clueless and rescue some useful exercise from the tyranny of inner peace and assorted nonsense. Combine basic yoga moves with basic firearm handling/stances. Breath control can finally be put to good use. Instead of bowing and stupid furrin' phrases, everyone recites the Four Rules at the end.

Oh - and 511s, not yoga pants.

Getting humble people to admit they were wrong is tough. Usually the best you can do is lead them to their own conclusion and wait.

But these pompous asses have way to much invested in themselves to ever allow that. Besides, there's been no downside whatsoever to being NeverTrump, even at this date. Where they reside it is social currency too valuable to give up.
Plus, as members of the Progressive Uniparty, they'll be happy to mark time getting nothing done until he's gone.
And the sooner the GOP loses the house, senate, and Presidency, the sooner they can go back to being Conservative Inc. Principled opposition.

Tactical spork. Yep. Someone posted a link of that for me a couple weeks ago, which I followed, and a few days ago I got an email from Amazon with a "we thought you'd be interested in this " and a lovely selection of tactical spork links.

Muldoon, that's horrible.

For some reason, this reminds me of a related pet peeve: the hugging thing between guys. WTF?

Unlike almost anyone I know who does this, I've actually spent time outside the country, in places where men do the kiss on the cheek thing, for example. Fine, it's a furrin' culture.

It hasn't been happening that long. A few cases, I sort of put the other side off-balance by refusing the hug by continuing the handshake.

Saw the sidebar post about the article in THE HORSE magazine that discusses insulin resistance in horses.

Yes, it is a real thing. And for those on here with horses who want to know a lot more detail and understand how to "treat" IR in horses(you don't treat it per se, instead it is considered a metabolic type in horses and needs to be accommodated through proper feeding and exercise) go to www. ecir.org. A real life huge study group of owners and professionals who have been on the cutting edge or recognizing this syndrome in horses and how to prevent or deal with it so the horse becomes healthy again.

For those who don't know, uncontrolled insulin in horses leads to one of the worst afflictions a horse can have which is laminitis in their feet. Imagine having your toenails ripping off while you are required to stand on them. That is what the pain of laminitis is like for a horse. Many of them end up euthanized.

256 NY Post: "The bureau even flagged the routing of millions from Russian nuclear officials to cutouts and on to Clinton Inc.

Hillary Clinton, again, sat on a key government body that had to approve the deal--though she now claims she had no role in a deal with profound national security implications {the janitor did it!} and during the campaign called the payments a coincidence.

The Obama administration--anxious to "reset" US-Russian relations--kept it all under wraps, refusing to tell even top congressional intelligence figures.

And when the Obamaites in 2014 filed low-level criminal charges against a single individual over what the FBI found, they did so with little public fanfare.".......

That's the hallmark of every Clinton Crime Wave--some other patsy always goes to jail in her place. Such as the Travel Office's Billy Dale, when the Empress wanted to give the travel contracts to the Thomasons, but didn't want any criticisms. Solution: throw an innocent man in jail.

They even fired an FBI Director to keep up the charade. Eventually, Special Prosecutor Robert Ray said Sure, she lied under oath, but that's just our Hillary. No charges.

No wonder these thugs think they're above the law; they are.

257 Had lunch with a good friend who is very Democrat, but not really political. In the other room, some news conference was going on--couldn't hear any of it other than noise.

She said, "I hope that conference is saying that Trump is being arrested over the Russian interference."

I explained the latest bombshell news, about the Clintons and Obama in collusion to sell the Russians our uranium.

She was shocked, then said, "I'm going to ignore what you just said. I hope they're saying Trump was arrested."

Glad you posted this. I never made it to the comments section because I came straight here after I read it to summarize & call bullshit.

You know, ol'Linda is exactly like Anna Wintour/Meryl Streep/
Shondra Rhimes (Grey's Anatomy & Scandal)/Marti Noxon (Buffy the VS)/Jane Fonda/Carrie Fisher/Nora Ephron.

Out & proud lib women; so-called feminists; denigrators of conservative women everywhere; defenders of Bill.

At least the late great Ephron consistently rolled her eyes at stupid organizations like "Women in Film" -- her point being, Christ! stop celebrating the short list of accomplishments and get out there and just make movies.

Hollywood/NY women older than me, and women in my age group, who have for YEARS shunted aside anything conservative women have to say; telling us we were part of the problem for having the wrong letter after our names; forcing us underground in order to stay in the industry. An industry that said one thing at the Oscars, and practiced another on the soundstage.

Your hypocrisy is out there now for all the world to see. You think writing op-eds saying, Yeah I knew/Yeah it goes on a lot -- will let you off the hook? Because you are only being half-truthful. Except for LBT admitting she still "loves Bill", and having to have her comments closed, because they're filled with folk telling her, We're onto you now!

Now who's part of the problem?

Longtime Hillary Pollster Mark Penn: You Know, It's Not Really Credible That Russia Could, or Would Even Think It Could, Swing an Election In Which $2.5 Billion Was Spent With $100,000 in FaceBook Ads (Which Themselves Had Mixed Messages)

Salon's Hot 25 hardest hit.

In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal:

[C]onsider the scale of American presidential elections. Hillary Clinton’s total campaign budget, including associated committees, was $1.4 billion. Mr. Trump and his allies had about $1 billion. Even a full $100,000 of Russian ads would have erased just 0.025% of Hillary’s financial advantage. In the last week of the campaign alone, Mrs. Clinton’s super PAC dumped $6 million in ads into Florida, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

I have 40 years of experience in politics, and this Russian ad buy, mostly after the election anyway, simply does not add up to a carefully targeted campaign to move voters.

But the Salon Hot 25 who worship Jake Tapper think this is a plausible reason why their constant attacks on conservatives who thought had just a chance to win were actually justified. A conspiracy theory created to salve their bloated but bruised egos.

It's always amusing when those who fulminate the hottest against conspiracy theories dabble in (or dive right into) them themselves.

55 The sheer screaming stupidity of leftists is jaw-dropping. That anyone could seriously think Hillary lost because of "Russian intervention" is a sad commentary on the leftists among us. As far as rigging elections, I never hear of voter boxes stuffed with ballots found floating in the waters of Republican-controlled areas, or in the trunks of Republican cars. I don't think the Republicans gerrymandered districts to obscenely manipulate the electoral constituency. I don't remember a Republican president prancing around foreign nations telling them how to vote and threatening them with trade sanctions if they don't vote the way he dictates. I don't remember a Republican president actively engaged in funding opposition in Israel (our ally) to topple its prime minister - of course the leftists never bring up Obama's role in that.

ace, every bit of this has been, obviously, absurd from the get-go.

It's like Lyndon LaRouche's ravings about the Queen and the drug cartels were taken seriously. To the point the DOJ appoou inted a f***ing special counsel to "investigate" the nonsense.

And the pundits you rightly disdain are stupid. It's not about their "egos". And that would be no excuse. Why the universal default gymnastics to, effectively, distract and excuse people who demonstrate they don't think well? There's a bell curve, it's real. People who assert ridiculous things are not to be taken seriously. They're stupid.

Posted by: rhomboid at October 18, 2017 04:34 PM (QDnY+)

61 Here's the bottom line.

Russia tried to influence the election, of course they did. They've been trying for almost 100 years every election. So did Israel, Germany, England, France, Japan, China, and every other major nation on earth. They all want to influence the US election, because it affects them so significantly.

This is not new. It is not different. Its annoying, but inevitable.

The Democrats are trying to pretend this is some kind of anomaly, some new horror we must stop. Its ridiculous, and I'm convinced it all stems from the Obama administration realizing that they'd been illegally spying on Trump and were about to be caught with their pants down by the new administration, so they came up with this cover story.

70 Listening to Sanders on the Senate floor. He really is "Crazy Bernie". All he does is rail against "the top 1%" 100% of the time.

Bernie Sanders could barely afford to put food on his family's table before he got into government. He and his social climbing wife now own what? Three nice houses?

According to the CBO, the 1% started at $347,000 pre tax in 2007. After tax that's $252,000. That's a damn healthy salary, but I don't see that as "three houses" salary. More likely one nice house, new cars every couple of years, and a nice vacation every year.

Sanders is most likely living a lifestyle that's beyond most entry-level 1%ers.

re-post of OT:

Judicial coup status:

[X] Intact, and thriving
[ ] Other than intact, and thriving


MD fed district judge has blocked parts of the latest routine exercise of plenary presidential authority over admissions, er, "travel ban". Using the same delusional, completely unjudicial and spurious "reasoning" of all the other courts to date.

It was not wild speculation when, at the time of the first judicial usurpation in this matter, many predicted that failure to deal decisively with the problem would only lead to more of it. A lot more of it. Here we are. And it is likely to get much, much worse.

84 Slightly OT, but I just read the Hollywood Reporter op-ed written by longtime Clinton BFF Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, as re: Weinstein Chronicles.

While admitting knowledge of perpetual industry harassment, the only name she names is Bill Clinton's, and only goes as far to say he "tested [her] feminist bona fides*" (is that what the kids are calling it these days?), but she still loved him, blahblah.

She pointed out Designing Women never got an Emmy for writing/directing/acting, though the series had a lot of socially conscious storylines (I always thought it was because the series was heavy-handed & overacted, but what do I know).

The line that chaps the most is at the end, where she waxes poetic about how any girl driving into town in some old car should be able to live her dreams without being groped. She could have said the same about "any girl" driving into D.C.

Here's the thing though, the "posted by" inclusion at least tells someone "hey they're responding to me" rather than just some number you have no clue about. So that person knows you are directly responding to something they have said. Others can move on or scroll up to refresh. The number alone is almost useless.

168 My brother used to live next door to a guy with a German Shepard mix which got along very well with my brother's retriever. There was a chain link fence separating the yards, but they would leave a gate open so the dogs had twice the space to run around in while my brother and his neighbor were at work. One day the neighbor said, "OK, why did they decide that your backyard is the playroom and my backyard is the shitter?"

224 220 133 Bernie Sanders keeps banging the same drum.

Bernie's theme song is Todd Rundgren's "I Don't Wanna Work, I Wanna Bang On The Drum All Day."

Way back in the 1992 Presidential debates, Ross Perot said that the net worth of the Fortune 500 couldn't cover the Federal budget for one year.

IIRC the AMA has a lobby that protects the "guild". Ie. there is some sort of federal law that limits the number of people who can become doctors every year. Just an arbitrary limit, nothing to do with aptitude.

One way to decrease price would be to remove this limit. Flood the market with doctors. I also hope that most of the functions of doctors can be automated in the future, which would also reduce costs.

At that rate, it'll be 610 years until the oceans rise six feet. I'm pretty sure we can plan for that.

The bill for shopping at Walmart was consistently ten percent less
for the same list of items purchased at other stores. It isn't worth my
time to comparison shop anymore.

.I shop at Walmart all of the time but you have got to watch their meat. Way too much *added ingredients make up 17% of the total weight* even with some of their fresh meat, pork chops especially. I saw one Great Value Ham at Christmas that was 25% added ingredients, water being the number one on the list.

Patient's don't really pay for it. If it was a free market you could make that argument, but medicine isn't a free market.

Good point.

Med School ought to be like an apprenticeship. Medicine is so specialized that to train the mind in other disciplines is an exercise in diminishing returns. Just cut out the extraneous and get on with it because the amount of specialized knowledge required is almost overwhelming.

Those who might need the more classical ladder should probably be reserved for MD-PhD programs where clinical medicine is not the goal.

Of course automation and robotics are going to change the industry before anything else does, so this is all probably moot.

I can relate. My taxes and insurance go up and my coverage gets shittier every year. What hasn't gone up is my income. It isn't physicians to blame.

302 "IIRC the AMA has a lobby that protects the "guild".
Ie. there is some sort of federal law that limits the number of people
who can become doctors every year. Just an arbitrary limit, nothing to
do with aptitude."

sounds right ... I hung out with a bunch of perfusionists (and other med miscreants) and they got to choose their little crew. They had a good laugh about the doc that would open (and therefore ruin) a $2000 thing that wasn't really needed, on behalf of his buddy, for some extra bucks.

But perfusionists ... basically less skill than an auto mechanic ... watch for bubbles ... stop the bubbles. Maybe a little more than that sure, but because they chose their special people for their specialty, started at like $75K, 25 years ago.

AND they got to decide which vendor sold them expensive equipment. Their vendor was a great guy, sponsored their volleyball team I was on, threw a big booze party with the jungle juice coming out of the profusion machine. How cool is that ... of course we want to buy THAT guy's machine. Free Booze ... parties ... thanks guys like me that now must pay $12K/yr to fund all their scams, plus all the illegals, plus Blue Cross has to find Someone to gouge.

But I showed them, dropped my insurance, and am buying toys with that money. Obamacare guns, Obamacare Tiller, Obamacare beer equipment ... cheers

FBI Confirms: Yes, James Comey Finished His Draft of the Speech Absolving Hillary Clinton Months Before Concluding the Investigation

A lot of people most convinced of their holy integrity are actually vile rats.

In documents it released on Monday, the FBI confirmed that former FBI Director James Comey drafted a statement about the conclusion of the Hillary Clinton email investigation months before interviewing Clinton.

The records show that on May 2, 2016, Comey emailed Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, general counsel James Baker and chief of staff and senior counselor James Rybicki. The subject of the email was "midyear exam," and though the email says its contents are unclassified, the body of the email is redacted in the release.

...

FBI and Justice Department analysts are divided on whether Comey violated rules or broke with tradition by drafting the statement prior to interviewing Clinton and other witnesses. "To me, this is so far out of bounds it’s not even in the stadium," Chris Swecker, who retired from the FBI in 2006 as assistant director for the criminal investigative division and acting executive assistant director for law enforcement services, previously told Newsweek. "That is just not how things operate.... It's built in our DNA not to prejudge investigations, particularly from the top."

For Comey's response, we'll have to wait to see what he leaks to his friend at Columbia and then to the New York Times.

92 I was mad at a boyfriend once & put mascara & blush on him while he was asleep. He went to class like that. Ha! He came home and was all up in arms b/c people were staring at him & whispering all thru Chemistry.

Truthfully, I expected him to look in the mirror before class. But, oh well. :-)

93 88. Did you do a good job of it? I mean, not just glopped on, but a proper application?


Pretty good. The eyelashes were hard with his eyes closed, but when he got home from class I could see they were well done. The blush was a little heavy handed.

Thing is, we was blonde with green eyes, so the make up really stood out. I wish I'd added liner...but I was afraid it'd wake him up. When he walked thru the door and I saw he still had it on I was like...uh oh. Tried not to laugh and failed badly.

It was an early morning class. Like 8 am, and we were off campus. So he was late and in a rush. I never showered before my early classes. No make up either. Like the rest of the class. Poor professor. Heh.

Virginia Democrat Gubernatorial Candidate Ralph Northam Deletes Black Running Mate from Campaign Literature

Bill Kristol's wife Susan's candidate is an ethno-nationalist, purging black men from campaign literature?



Susan Kristol hasn't commented yet. But I imagine she'll be just hysterical.


Update: Susan Kristol, who I'm designating as an Honorary Member of Salon's Hot 25, wouldn't like this at all:


#FakeNews? Well, it's a type of #FakeNews: Real news that progressives don't know about because their progressive #Gatekeepers suppress the information to keep their souls untainted:


Update: Black activists are displeased with Northam's eliminationist ethno-nationalism:

95 we kinda already have individual 'secession', to the degree we our recognized as having inalienable God given rights.

When ANYONE says they will take such liberty, because they decided communist control over our every action better serves their purposes, or their "clientele" --- then we have the constitutional sovereign right to "object" ... with our constitutional gun if necessary.

On the higher scale ... we not only have the right, we have the DUTY to destroy all such oppressors.

once they got them here, they just dumped them into the local population, and didn't do shit for them. since the latins are horribly racist with each other (mexicans call slavadoreans "cerrote" which is "piece of shit"), they formed their own gangs out of necessity.

They only printed 30,000 for that super targeted area where they need to gin up some black support where it is wavering because of the DNC's support of all things ghey and tranny - which regular African American, churchgoing southern folks absolutely detest. Otherwise they take the black community for granted and treat them as a new plantation for their use. This is a large, heavy and hardened cudgel, made that way by the politics of race and division created by the Demoncrats and socialist lefties. I say : Pick it up and start bashing them over the head with it - they have absolutely NO defense to it and it hurts them massively.

Soverign Citizens are hilarious.

There legitimately is a Constitutional right generally knows as "Freedom of Movement" which allows one to travel between states at will.

SovCits twist this and claim they have a "right to travel" which means they can drive a private vehicle without a license, registration, or insurance and are exempt from regulation as long as they're not engaging in commerce or causing harm to people or property.

As soon as a cop pulls them over, the SovCit will demand to know why their right to travel is being restrained. They will argue they're not driving, they're travelling. They'll demand to have proof of the crime they've committed which permits the LEO to pull them over. And as soon as they're yanked from the car because they ALWAYS refuse to identify themselves, they'll scream that the cop doesn't know their own laws and is violating the SovCit's rights.

Nikolai Yezhov would be a better analogy. The photos of him and Stalin are the standard example of Soviet airbrushing. By the time Beria got his Excedrin Headache Number 9, the Soviets weren't doing the airbrushing thing quite so diligently.

Incidentally, both Yezhov and Beria screamed and kicked like little girls when they were taken to the basement for their bullet. Appropriate, I think.

317 Facial tattoos are almost required gang identifiers with Latino gangs since putting the gang tattoos on your face shows absolute commitment.

Young men in Central and South America who want to drop out of their gangs--usually because of religious conversion--must remove their gang tattoos to show no affiliation. Many of them do this by burning off tattoos with repeated 'skin treatments' of Nair hair remover and other readily available chemical mixtures, such as lye, that burn skin.

The scarring is horrible but most who leave the gangs consider it worth it.

But yeah Jeffy, the swamp are really nice guys ... if you hang with them long enough. Weinstein was nice ... I hear Dr. Jekyll was very sociable.

Then he'd hit 330 with 20 home runs and steal 30 bases while you're laughing. The guy was amazing, and he's still hilarious today.

It was amazing, at the same time Kruk played, Will Clark was on the Giants. Clark was a great player, got tons of respect, was held up as a baseball god... they both had pretty much identical stats. but Will the Thrill looked like an actor and Kruk looked like a fan on the sofa.

I agree. But maybe the audience for country music changed. Maybe it's no longer truckers and shit knickers who listen to country these days. I don't care for today's country. If I want to hear '70's and '80's rock, I'll listen to '70's and '80's rock. Because that's what today's country is.

You're wrong. When I say "classic rock" , I should have clarified that I didn't mean Zeppelin or Hendrix or any of that. But '70's rock radio was loaded with stuff like the Eagles, America, Firefall, The Belamy Brothers etc. and the '80's had those power ballads like the ones by Poison and a few others whose names escape me.

NFL Decides at League Meeting That It Will Not Require Players to Stand for National Anthem

It will merely suggest that they do so.


Don Surber discusses the NFL's cash cow drying up, and links this great Victor Davis Hansen article about our failing institutions of civic unity (the media, the NFL, etc.), which contribute to the nation's rush into total dissolution.

Which, at this point, in my opinion, is as inevitable as it is welcome.

The public is turning the channel on what used to be the markers of its weekly existence.

Slowly and by hit and miss, Americans are learning that they do not need to go to a theater to see another Harvey Weinstein movie; or watch network news or read traditional journalism; or, on NFL Sunday, see more zillionaires in their luxury boxes above grow giddy as their employees below score, only to see a showboating player kneel on all fours to mimic a urinating dog, which is apparently less offensive than standing for the national anthem.

We have no common values, and we increasingly have no common culture. Progressives spearhead efforts to remove a common language.

With nothing left in common, how are the states united in anything but name?

Call an Article 5 convention, enact an amendment permitting secession, and let two or three or four young and vital New Americas bloom out of the dead stump of the old one.

It is still possible that full revealing of these crimes cracks the left ... and America First seems reasonable, and the insanity of 'open borders' arises from the PC ashes as obvious.

From what I've read, there might be de jure ability for secession, but the Civil War decided the other way in a bit more of a de facto fashion.

No need. Secession is certainly permitted under the Constitution. What happened in the Civil War was that the SOuthern states seceded and then the United States went to war with a foreign nation - afterwards readmitting the seceded states into the Union.

If secession wasn't possible then there would have been no reason to have to readmit the states into the Union.

Don't think that it would require the Federal government. You forsake the laws of the land, the laws of the land no longer protect you. And with a contiguous border next to potentially hostile tribes, and/or hostile tribes within, I think you might see a return to the wild west in short order, while you have given up the protection of the Federales.


Just because an existing government decides it wants to splinter off, it does not mean that they are owed continuity of allegiance/deference.

No the NFL won't go away or bankrupt, but it will lose its status as a bit of Apple Pie Americana.

It will exist at a lower pay/lower status level...like pro-bowling.

Then encourage them to enact single payer at the state level.

Curious as to what excuse she used for the switch. (I assume she once loved you or said she did.)

I'm fascinated by the reasons given. Especially these days of entitlement and rampant feminism.

Does anyone wonder about the fact that since no fault divorce became almost universal in the states that divorces are initiated by the women in 70percent of all filings?

That the majority of states have some sort of communal property laws and laws requiring the husband to give up residence in a house he's paid for and somehow find other shelter when his pay only barely helped pay for the house he's been removed from? That you never hear about these inequities from the feminists and male bashers. Only about wife abuse. (which also begs the question, what about the man when he is abused by his wife? Happens more than you think and not a small number.)

Ah well. You've gotten me started. I'll shut up now.

^That's stupid. 1st democrats don't get to steal parts of our country, not in 1861, not now. They do get to die by the hundreds of thousands and watch their cites burn.

false to their pledges, their honor, and their interests are not law, and
that such a government is unworthy of the support of a brave and free

absolved from all allegiance to said government, and that they have a

The NFL could have nipped this all in the bud last year by telling Kopernick's coach that he can't protest on the job, to stand up and be a part of the team. But they didn't. Now, too manay are involved in this idiotic stunt because the NFL set precedent that its perfectly fine to spend on job time with your personal schemes and tantrums, so they can't say no at this point. To many players are involved and how they have leverage and strength to defy the team and the league.

262 OFFS, it's only football. "We" never declared it a national institution, and by the way that did not happen in the 70's. Football's PR department, not entirely divorced from certain shadowy gambling interests, worked from the 1930's on to Heisman-off the ethics lobby trying to outlaw it. Because--spoiler--it's crooked.

It will shock some of you snot-noses standing on my lawn that Rock and Roll Music was not part of the real-American football experience. It will shock you only because you've grown up with its glossy production values. Real football, pro, college, and high school, marched to Sousa. Even great old classic rock and roll like Elvis and the early Rolling Stones had no place there. Truth of the matter? Just looking like a rock fan could get you roughed up at any football game a scant 50 years ago. It changed.

Football wheedled its way into the National Institution business, to keep the baksheesh flowing. If the rest of us do not choose to "evolve" with the bootleggers and dope-dealers, well, we had Most Popular Sports before this one and they weren't all team ball games. Folks managed to have a good time.

Crew boat races, open-air swim meets, and rifle matches were the most popular spectator sports at the turn of the last century. American motor sport -- sprint cars and the Indianapolis 500 -- were immeasurably bigger than football in the 1950's. All those events are still being held. And they sell tickets for the public to watch. Compared to a hundred or so to watch the Ghetto Motherfuggas bash heads with the Drugged-Up Mish-Snatchers, admission is a tremendous bargain.

I know it's a metric four-by-four to the side of the head for sommayaz, but we don't need a constitutional convention to decide we like another game better.

Have ICE put together a large SWAT team, and have them surround the facility where he is being held. Wetback doesn't leave, or get transferred, without ICE's say-so.

If California LEO's attempt to interfere with ICE, or worse, fire upon them, Trump declares California to be in rebellion, and send troops into Sacramento to arrest Jerry Brown, and all the Dems in the legislature, and hang them on the spot for treason.

That would send a message.

How much hate is real and how much is manufactured?

How many locally are doing it for attention?

Back in the day, there used to be something called the Silent Majority.

Today, those are the people that voted for Trump.

As for new prog hate vs. old prog hate, I think it's the same amount.

I was even in a shelter while I had to pay his bills during the divorce (because I couldn't reduce the value of communal "assets.")

I lost the house and one of my retirement accounts. He didn't work during the marriage, so what got split was EVERYTHING I HAD WORKED FOR. So much for supporting someone "in the arts."

It's not like the players are inciting violence.
Other folks have the freedom to not watch.
I'm not watching nfl, haven't in years, and won't ever again.
We should all cherish our freedoms to choose.

Instead of trying to force players or 'actors' to stand up for something, they should simply be mocked and shunned as ridiculous, petty, ironic, and hypocritical.
Viewers tuning out is accomplishing exactly that, silently. Cutting the cord, not watching, not caring, and not ever going back is the course for me, an individual.
I can't make a millionaire child-man care for America or her symbols or anthems any more than he can make me care about his "protest" of her.

I still love the game of football, the strategies, the decisions, the grit, the togetherness that exemplifies teamwork, but I can no longer watch national football on account of the individuals not realizing what whole they are a part of.
They can choose to kneel. I can choose, too.
That is another great thing about America and the freedoms we all have, for now.
I have the freedom to laugh at them and not empower them with attention or money.
I have that freedom, until they tell me that laughing is 'hate speech', which is the endgame for SJW's here and abroad.
I choose to laugh at them, soundly and loudly.

People behind the game were geniuses at promotion and emotional manipulation, they did such a good job at turning basically a dull game into an exciting super spectacle with sound and graphics and replays and exciting-seeming narration.

When you turn what, 20 minutes of play into 4 hours of TV time and people still watch... its not the product, its you being really good at shaping the product and selling it.

314 So speaking of the Vegas shooter, did this Gellar beheading dude have a connection to ISIS?

Of course not.

ISIS is just a social construct.

Also, it has been PROVEN that the Manchester bombing of the Ariana Grande concert had nothing to do with the peaceful religion of islam and was not a hate crime. It was the act of a Lone Wolf.

Just like that fellow in Vegas.

Lone. Wolf.

No sympathy for them.

As PT Barnum said, "Never give a sucker and even break."



Unlike GOPe in Congress who are traitors & we have no current influence over. With the NFL we do have power. We can vote with our reaction and money. So we do have the power on this.

Depends if people use it. Tipping point. This is an easy win, if people care. But even on this site, last week, people were posting about the games as they watched.

But watershed moment for country, IMO. If people can't even give up something this non-essential to make a point, we've lost the bigger battles, and maybe the war.

The NFL commissar is stuck in the "social responsibility" zone that many US corporations have adapted as a way to exemplify that they are not just a cold profit-making enterprise, but extol many of the PC-approved SJW ventures to paint them as a kinder, gentler capitalist enterprise.

I really liked football when I was 13-14 years old. Have no idea what started the fascination, maybe because my neighborhood was all boys and I used to join them in playing touch football.

After a decades long hiatus I would tune in to games from time to time because my workplace was highly testosterized and I felt like I needed material for water cooler convos. I noticed how everything surrounding the game had gotten turbo-charged and amped up: radio announcer voices, graphics for the pre-game shows which by the way started on Saturday evening and continued on through game time.

It was all over the top and too much. Then the Sandusky scandal erupted and the awful situation in Sayreville NJ football team. I wondered wtf had happened to this game that used to be ...just a sport?

It really is, IMO, for many reasons. (I'm prejudiced, I'll admit.)

First, people don't get hurt.

Second, it's not nearly as specialized.

Third, because it's not as specialized, it tends to select for normal-sized people. The typical MLB player is around 6'1" 205 lbs. (With some exceptions, either way, of course.) It's not generally an advantage to be 7 feet tall, or weigh 300 lbs., because you have to haul that around in the field and on the bases.

The Superbowl pregame stuff is the ultimate overkill. Week upon week of buildup and interviews and retrospectives and on and on.

Because its just one game. A couple hours and the entire season is over with. They need to milk it for more. Other sports its a multi-game final series so they have more days of content to keep attention and make money with. Football has just one game.

At this point, if this were really about whatever the players claim it
is about, they would give it up because it's only alienating people from
their cause.



I got into a pretty lengthy twitter argument months ago about this. It was enlightening.


What do you and I believe is the point of a protest? To raise awareness and bring others to our cause, right? To say, "This is good/this is bad, and here's why." Because we protest to change things from the ground up.


The leftists sniping at me in my timeline were of a different view. "No, protest is to force change. It's to make people in power uncomfortable so that they fix things."



To leftists it's not about gaining support from the ground up, but about coercing action from the top down.


That made the Mizzou debacle make so much more sense in my eyes. Here are a bunch of idiot students complaining about some illusory affront to their dignity, but instead of getting their faces and placards in front of every camera they could find, they were actively keeping cameras AWAY. Hence Melissa Click's "I need some muscle over here!" gaffe.



At the time I wondered why any protest worth its salt would be actively trying to AVOID publicity. Now I know. They don't want to persuade and cause organic social change.

379 The other behometh...Hollywood...is gonna change too.

I wasn't sure until yesterday. A known actor came out and w/o using Affleck, Clooney, Damon, or Streep's names, called them liars. He said anyone who had been in Hollywood 5 years knew about this. That he had heard stories for over 25.

He said that people had tried to do something about it and been destroyed.

Also, Reese Witherspoon talked about her assaults. That shocked me. She started very early in business. Under 16. Anyway, you can read her speech &'Facebook post. Her hisband is also a bigwig at an agency.

It sounded to me like they are going to form an organization to protect the girls coming up now. That's what she implied to the audience. So Hollywood may not break apart, but they are going to be held accountable going forward, for the first time. And there are some power hitters to make sure.

I don't mind interleague play, but I hate the DH rule. It's a step toward the "footballization" of MLB, i.e., the tendency toward specialization.

Think how much fun football would be if everyone played both ways again. Now coaches would have to balance a player's performance on offense against his performance on defense, and conditioning would be a huge factor.

Now it's like those video games where you get to choose maximum firepower, maximum armor, and maximum speed, i.e., you don't have to make any tactical decisions on firepower vs. armor vs. speed.

Cutting out virtually everything you wrote in favor of one small thing:

I hate interleague play because it feels less consequential in some ways that the rest of the games. I also think it's lazily put together (especially the idea of following the rules of the home league). I'd be a fair bit happier if the home team had to adopt the opposite league's rules, especially around the DH. Give the home audience a perspective of the other league's play up close.

Also, it seems to make the WS less consequential on some level. We could have two teams that already met this year. The only rematches should be from previous WS's.

His uniform was always off-kilter too, like the pants were usually flood length. Loved that guy.

So my friend's daughter got them to ... wait for it ... build a fence - yes! what a concept! - to keep the goddamned animals from shitting in their water supply, and not to drag goatskins through the crap in the village.

Yes. Electricity, roads, watermains, etc. The infrastructure is too tightly connected.

I think the way this would work itself out would be if individual states seceded, and would drastically change their policies towards cities, for instance really cracking down on sanctuary cities. The people in these cities would then migrate out of the red nation to the blue nation of their own volition. Blue states would no doubt do the same. In other words there would be two phases to secession: voter driven phase to get the state to secede, then a policy driven phase to persuade people to resettle.

People can vote with their feet. If Austinites or Madisonians don't want to live in the USA, they can move back to the California Republic. If Illini don't want to live in a nation dominated by Chicago, they can move to The USA -- Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, etc.

I can see a couple of cases where a big chunk of the new nation may secede and want to join the USA, as West Virginia did. Perhaps that would include northern and eastern California, eastern Oregon and Washington, and upstate New York.

But in general, I would think there would be a reshuffling of population.

514 So my friend's daughter got them to ... wait for it ... build a fence -
yes! what a concept! - to keep the goddamned animals from shitting in
their water supply, and not to drag goatskins through the crap in the
village.




ARRRRRGH!


*tears hair*


It's got to be the world's longest con job. That's the only answer. Idiotic notions of cultural appropriation aside, "ways to keep shit out of our water" tend to be among those things that spread easily between cultures, because no one wants to drink sewage water. Africa is not some far-flung place with no access to the outside world. It's been long enough by now that "don't drink downstream of the herd" should have sunk into the continental consciousness.


So it's a con job, but it's a con job that's gone on FOREVER. I mean hell, if I could get a bunch of eager, earnest college grads to fix up my house, dig me a well, hand me a wad of cash and inoculate my chickens, and all I had to do in return is nod my head and say, "I understand," I'd be signing up for it without a second thought.

True, but a lot of 3rd wave feminists are among the one's doing the unmasking in the first place. Rose McGowan's a third waver. So's Ashley Judd. They'll grab hold with both hands and won't let go now that they've got any kind of moral platform from which to speak. It'll be a shit show.



Wow. This is the problem with making everything political. And about male/female power dynamics being what people care about. And since you want to dump on Judd & Rose. Guess what? If men had not allowed it, then you wouldn't be getting this, now would you.

You all seem concerned about that, not the victims. It'll be a shit show? It already is a shit show. I care about the people, the children, the men and women whose lives were totally ruined. It has been going on for decades. No one did anything.

No flyovers. No color guards (where provided out of DOD resources). And especially - no advertizing associated with NFL broadcasts or events. Zero.

It is beyond outrageous that the USG - and the DOD itself - would in any way support this idiocy with taxpayers' $$$$.

Men allowed it. So did women. Rose and Ashley allowed it. So did Jane Fonda, Gwyneth Paltrow, Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Tom Hanks, and dozens of others who KNEW and DID NOTHING. Don't blame me for making this political. Abuse isn't political. I'm not "dumping" on Ashley Judd Rose McGowan. I'm actively describing their feminist ideologies. They are rabid 3rd wave feminists, and if you think they will give up this opportunity to turn the screws on Hollywood in general, and men in particular, viciously and without scruples, you are naive.


I have sympathy for the victims. I have the most sympathy for those whose career's faltered after crossing Weinstein. I have no sympathy for those who enabled his behavior, even if they were victimized themselves. That includes McGowan and Judd. I'm glad they're doing something now, and I hope that, in the end, a better, less predatory industry grows from Hollywood's ashes.

Agreed. But you see that this 60 year evolution of corporate "social responsibility" has seeped into almost anything / everything that is purchased and produced on a large scale and scope.

It is sickening to me that you buy one thing and finance the both the producer and third parties in the purchase price (govt, and socially responsible third party linked to the producer).

A lot of this is due to the tax-code, where corporations can deduct charitable & inkind contributions to these 501c entities - the SJW social responsible ones. The utility company is likely spending dollars on an SJW environmental project, but wouldn't know it without checking it out for yourself. So are the "evil" big oil companies. They have been forced to finance things contrary to their initial business purpose.

But you are right, the less you willingly finance these efforts, the better.

We have to man up, acknowledge secession has taken place, and negotiate borders and treaties. The only other option is war to throw out the occupiers.

Two: When does the walls around California go up?

Three: They go and we continue to be the United States. Our Constitution remains the longest running. We're not starting from scratch because we didn't f*** it up, they did. (And John McCain can go with them.)

Four: Suppose California really does secede? At which number do we start the countdown to when they shift their eyes to a new prize? Ten days? When they realize they can't pay their bills and our wealth becomes "unfair"?

539 The whole business model of Hollywood and the NFL relies on one thing: An audience. Eyeballs, butts in seats, etc. They are pissing off a significant percentage of people, everyday - millions of potential paying customers. As the old saying goes, it's a lot cheaper to retain an existing customer than get a new one.

There's also a whole generation of people who do not want to pay for ANYTHING - They watch videos on YouTube, or pirate movies, or play video games they buy six months after release for 50% off. I have three sons, and only one of them expresses any interest in any movies at all. All three barely watch TV, one not at all. They are not atypical. The "coveted" 18-34 year old bracket are tuning out, and politics have nothing to do with it.

You keep your customers HAPPY, by providing VALUE for their dollars. And right now, while many are struggling... the economy is improving. Gas prices, energy costs, and food costs are down... and increasing competition is driving down the prices of goods and services across America. Any extra dollars people have... in many cases, it's not going to Hollywood.

The final shoe to drop is Netflix. Netflix is THE big disruptor, as it started the movement of people from theaters to their homes - pouring BILLIONS into original content. Amazon has followed suit.

The problem is, the growth and spending they have poured into creating new content - it's not sustainable. If Netflix and Amazon stop spending it will cripple many if not all studios and production companies... Netflix will spend $8 BILLION next year. What if people stop subscribing, and they then stop that spend? DOOM.

I think it'll happen by 2019/2020. Hulu/Netflix/Amazon/etc. will pull back from original content. Disney will sell ABC and ESPN. Time Warner will dump CNN. And Hollywood will be BEGGING people to watch their shows and movies. BEGGING.

THAT'S a show I'll enjoy watching.

545 It is now time to let the other shoe drop on Hollywood and the NFL. Until now it was necessary to point out that they basically held their audience in contempt. But now that is understood and the terrain has shifted.

Now they have pivoted to attempting to lock-in a smaller but rabidly partisan sub set of their remaining viewers. For this to succeed they need to remain a topic of conversation among their former viewers. Their only value now is in being able to draw in viewers who perceive them as an effective tool to agitate the other.

The means to deny them this is to deny them any further mindspace at all. Do not post about not watching. Do not discuss their latest attempt to provoke controversy. Simply cease making any mention of them whatsoever.

You don't need to. Their audience is now SJW bitter clingers who don't actually like football. The only incentive they have to tune in is to attempt to inject their narrative into the media stream. In order to that, they need command their former audience's attention through continued acts of provocation. Without that attention, they cannot inject the narrative into the media stream and the whole enterprise fails. With it, they are able to nurse along with a smaller, partisan audience and the free promotion that comes through commentary on the web and linking to monetized video. The advertisers will figure it out soon enough.

I'm not saying we should ignore them to be polite. I'm saying we should ignore them because it is now the thing that will ensure the rotten enterprise comes crashing down.

When all those people decide to not buy season tickets NEXT season? And when local business don't buy those expensive skyboxes? That's when the NFL will see the material impact to their bottom line.

Obama's UN Ambassador Susan Power: I Didn't Make Those Unmasking Requests. Someone Must Have Made Them Using My Credentials.

Then that would be a major crime, right?

Someone within the Obama administration’s intelligence apparatus made requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

That's what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview.

South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday that Power was “emphatic” on the point that someone else in the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her.

Fox News recently reported that Power made approximately 260 unmasking requests -- a rate of one per business day -- in her final year in office, including up through the end of Obama’s term.

I'm halfway willing to believe this -- but then, I'm gonna need a major investigation to find out which Obama personnel were using Power's logins and such to illegally make these unmasking requests.

Apparently someone without the power to do so himself -- or someone who had the authority, but knew he was engaged in an illegal operation, and so wanted to conceal his identity.

Seriously - the DOJ should be in high overdrive right now and I can't for the life of me figure out WTF Deputy Dawg is doing with himself these days.

Pity.

34 It's not too hard to believe, given the Obama administration's systemic and unbelievably cavalier attitude towards national security in general, and computer security in particular.

37 >>I'm halfway willing to believe this -- but then, I'm gonna need a major
investigation to find out which Obama personnel were using Power's
logins and such to illegally make these unmasking requests.


Same.

However, too f'ing bad if one of your Obama administration colleagues did this to you, lady. Prove it.

38 We would be able to trace exactly who made the fraudulent unmaskings, but the details were on a hard drive and, gosh darn it, the thing crashed just yesterday. Totally unrecoverable. We checked. And since it was unrecoverable, we ran it over with a steamroller and melted it in the incinerator, so there is nothing left to even look at.

39 "11 I think Ace means "Samantha" Power. "Susan" is Susan Rice."


Correct. I think Susan Power was the lady with the blonde crewcut that had the weight loss infomercial in the early 90's. Came on after Tony Robbins.

43 I'm thinking this might be the pry bar that cracks the lid off this mess,

Ms Power, who might have had access to your ID and Pword? Would you care to name a name? Otherwise, we just have to assume it was you, because you are super smart and would have protected you id and pword because of your super secret access.

So who "took" your password and made the requests against your knowledge?

Squeeze this pig.

Posted by: JoeF. at October 18, 2017 12:31 PM (7uYFy)

45 She is saying her minions did it using her password

or her assistant used her (Power's) computer after it was logged in with her (Power's) password.

Because VIPs don't keyboard. Secretarys do all the administrative work.

Which means it was just an administrative screw up, not a big deal. things happen.

You cannot expect us to believe that someone impersonated her 260 times and there's no audit trail, no witnesses. Not buying it. Show us the records.

61 All of these request must be done on paper, or at least a form must be filled out.

Also, the results of the unmasking must be sent somewhere, and that would be on the form...

But the Government employees who run this crap, do NOT want the Public to have any information about what is actually going on...

Don't worry. I've been assured that the government is totally trustworthy and if they say we never know, it means we'll never know.

And if they're keeping things from us, it's for our own good!

69 I see, the "someone Using My Credentials" defense (*tries hard to find a real life occasion where can use this one*); really ? a US UN ambassador had such a loose relationship with her credentials in matters of security that someone without her knowledge could do such a thing ? I don't know for sure, but wouldn't there be several levels of authorization and authentication ? to make sure that this was indeed her ?

Because her secretary was just that interested in national security matters.
