Rumor: Horowitz Report to be Released to Public in One Hour
Mark Meadows: I Now Understand the Reason for Media/Democrat Defensive Leaks; It's Worse Than They've Been Claiming




The DOJ inspector general report on the origins of the Russia probe has been transmitted to Congress.

— Alex Salvi (@alexsalvinews)

#twoweeks

The Daily Caller sets the table for what the report will talk about.


At the heart of the probe is whether the FBI misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) regarding information from Christopher Steele, a former British spy who worked in 2016 for the DNC and Clinton campaign.

The FBI relied on information from Steele to assert there was probable cause to believe Carter Page was a working as an agent of Russia. Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s highly respected inspector general, opened an investigation March 28, 2018, that initially focused on how the FBI handled Steele’s information, and whether investigators disclosed everything they knew about the dossier to the FISC.

Horowitz since expanded the investigation to look at whether the FBI had a sound basis to open investigations into four Trump campaign associates in late July 2016. The watchdog also investigated whether the FBI properly handled confidential sources used in the probe.

That part of the report will likely focus on at least two FBI informants: Steele and Stefan Halper, a former Cambridge professor whom the FBI tasked to connect with Carter Page and Trump aide George Papadopoulos.

...

The report is also likely to include an assessment of whether FBI officials were biased against Trump during the Russia probe. During an investigation into FBI activities during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Horowitz’s team discovered anti-Trump text messages that FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok exchanged with FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

People associated with the Trump campaign have spent time in jail, like George Papadopoulos and Paul Manafort. Others are facing the prospect of jail time like Roger Stone and General Michael Flynn. Known perjurers like Andrew McCabe and John Brennan are hired as consultants by the Deep State media."

136 O/T but worth mentioning again:

415 The Epoch Times is independent and is owned and operated largely by Chinese nationals (ex-pats), largely in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the US. The people who own the Epoch Times are virulently anti-communist (they were part of the Nationalist forces if you go back far enough) and are sympathetic to the Falun Gong.

They are not a Taiwanese/Chinese or Falun Gong organization, though their owners are very sympathetic in that direction. Their primary thing seems to be anticommunism and surfacing human rights violations in China. They run dailies in Hong King and Taiwan, along with New York and Washington. They run a weekly for the rest of the US.

Recently, they have come out as fairly pro-Trump and virulently anti-coup, apparently because they view Trump as a holy force sent down to defeat communism.

My take as well. If they had anything, they'd have brought it up long ago. Now they're reduced to having grossly partisan "experts" opine on things on which they have no firsthand knowledge.

And probably no knowledge of any kind, apart OrangeManBad.

285 Steele was interviewed extensively by the IG's office this year and handed over documents. As is standard, he was able to review the portions of the report that mention him. So it's unclear why he's been prevented from reviewing/being briefed on the newly declassified info.

=========

The report says that information is being declassified, not newly included. Steele reviewed it already, he just wasn't told that it was going to be declassified.

No. If he had released it after the fake transcript was read into record, the Dems would have said the real transcript was fake. By releasing it so quickly, he set the narrative.

Also, they tipped their hand as to what they were attempting when they screamed that putting the transcript in a secure server was conspiracy (or some such). Their plan was to edit the transcript but Trump released it before they could access it to edit it.

I don't think the FISA court is empowered to take any actions. It reviews petitions and issues FISA warrants for, well, everything that is asked of it.

(I heard someone on FNC this morning say "well they're used to being able to trust the FBI so they naturally assumed it wasn't bullshit", or words to that effect).

Combine this with the fact that Horowitz doesn't prosecute anyone and the report (later denied by Barr's office) that Barr doesn't agree with some of the conclusions of this report, and there's definitely room for continued optimism.

"I don't think the FISA court is empowered to take any actions. It reviews petitions and issues FISA warrants for, well, everything that is asked of it."

Unless there was an exception carved out for FISA, and to my knowledge it was not, any judge or magistrate who was misled via perjury and/or fraud can subject the offending party to criminal contempt proceedings. It's more or less a one-man band show, too: warrant issues, offender has to appear and defend and then face the music.

BREAKING: After Naval Base Shooting, Pensacola Mayor Says City Is Under Cyber Attack
Posted by: artisanal 'ette


The Pensacola News Journal was first out of the gate this time around with what is a recurring feature of establishment media coverage of jihad attacks: the follow-up weeper about how the local Muslims are shocked (Shocked!) by the massacre, and are now cowering in fear of an "anti-Muslim backlash."

Is that true? I am not being snarky, I just don't know. But can the DoJ (haha, I know) not say, "we respectfully disagree with the IG's assessment and we're opening investigations and grand juries anyway?"
Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at December 09, 2019 12:54 PM (I2dne)

--------

In the event that there are no criminal referrals, the DoJ can do that very thing. Whether they would or not is anyone's guess. Same with criminal referrals in the report to be gin with.

We'll know soon though.

Given the early and unrebutted reports the FISA courts granted warrants without hearings in some cases, they must loan out those rubber stamps (only the first shows signs of wear).

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"Democrats and their progressive media allies shrieking about Russia 24/7 need to step back and listen to themselves. And knowing a little history wouldn't hurt. Back in the 1950s, they used to laugh at the Birchers who were finding commies hiding under every bed. And who also made the claim that President Eisenhower was self-consciously a Soviet agent. That last bit was the straw that broke the camel's back for William F. Buckley, who barred anyone associated with the John Birch Society from appearing in his National Review magazine.

He thus booted them from the conservative movement. And it worked. The John Birch Society was effectively marginalized to this day.

"Well, that was then, this is now. The progressives do not have anyone like Buckley, no voice of reason or sanity who can stand athwart history, yelling 'STOP!'

"And since the only way to maintain a conspiracy theory against the evidence of facts and logic is by expanding it, they just keep getting crazier and crazier. Look at those WaPo headlines. One Republican after another gets declared a Russian asset, and then the *entire party* gets labelled a Russian asset, and there is no evidence that any editor at the WaPo ever said, 'Wow, this is just crazy talk' or 'We need to dial it back a bit, otherwise we'll sound like a bunch of kooks and lose the confidence of our readers.'

They're all on board the crazy train, and there's no brakes."

This whole reboot stuff from 30 years ago is pretty new.

Before, it was the odd sequel like The Color of Money (sequel to The Hustler) or Saraband (sequel to Scenes from a Marriage).

The closest from decades past may be Bond changing from one movie to the next and no one mentioning it.

In terms of franchises today that continue despite failures, there are a handful. Superman Returns acted like Superman III and IV never happened. The newest Halloween acted like none of the sequels since the original Halloween happened. The newest Terminator acted like nothing after Terminator 2 happened.

Actually, yes it is. The left only knows one way to have trials: show tribunals. You're already guilty, the trial is for them to demonstrate their virtue, warn others, and create an atmosphere of terror.

The college tribunals where they don't evenallow the accused to present a case, the Soviet trials where you're guilty, and the trial is merely to establish HOW guilty. Obviously you must be guilty, the people in power say you are, and they cannot be wrong. To even question this is yet another crime.

109 Movie actors ARE pretty stupid. Truman Capote made the same point. It's to their advantage. The camera is absolutely unforgiving when it comes to anything that looks like "acting" or self-consciousness. That's the problem both Olivier and Streep have. They're both brialliant actors, but we can see them acting. Works great on the stage. Not so much in film. Olivier strikes some poses in "Hamlet" that make you want to run head-first into a tree, without a helmet. That's why Katherine Hepburn told Hopkins--"Don't act. Just read the lines."

128 Putin says Ukraine was corrupt ... Trump says Ukraine was corrupt ... therefore Trump is a Russian Agent. Sure, that makes sense.


They say this even as indictments are coming down for many Americans involved in money running out of Ukraine, and the clear prima facie evidence of Joe/Hunter taking millions in bribes (influence money) is widely known. Old Joe bragged about his clout.


But can they work up to Soros, and open the books on his propaganda enterprise, that reaches into 100 different influence operations?


Influence Ops are a BFD, they are foundational to how our FBI/CIA works covertly to dirty up their enemies (like Trump). It is the whole of the Fake News Industry (war on traditional America) ... and the whole coup is one giant influence op, working right within the DC corridors of influence peddling and sedition. It sways elections globally, and domestically.

137 This is just devastating. Trump should end this now. Note how much the Obama years made it worse.

Off the Record, U.S. Officials Acknowledge our Strategy in Afghanistan Is "Fatally flawed" https://t.co/EQmd0Asoa9

...Over in that faraway, deeply troubled country, the American taxpayer has paid for soybeans that won't grow, weapons that Afghan military forces lost, a $2.9 million farming-storage facility that was never used, and a $456,000 training center that "disintegrated" within four months. An Afghan power plant that the U.S. helped build was operating at just 2.2 percent of power production capacity. The SIGAR office round that significant portion of the U.S.-built buildings for the Afghan military are more flammable than international building codes permit. (Hey, why would you need to worry about burning buildings in a country at war, right?)

Inspector General John Sopko... uncovered waste, mismanagement, corruption, and all kinds of problems that no one wants to see, whatever their view of the war in Afghanistan.

...Heavy losses in the poppy-growing province of Helmand have required rebuilding an Afghan army corps and replacing its commander and some other officers as a result, a U.S. general said, of 'a combination of incompetence, corruption, and ineffectiveness.'"

...U.S. officials acknowledged that their warfighting strategies were fatally flawed and that Washington wasted enormous sums of money trying to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation."

Judging from the report, the more the United States tried to fix Afghanistan, the more they complicated and worsened existing problems.

During the peak of the fighting, from 2009 to 2012, U.S. lawmakers and military commanders believed the more they spent on schools, bridges, canals and other civil-works projects, the faster security would improve. Aid workers told government interviewers it was a colossal misjudgment, akin to pumping kerosene on a dying campfire just to keep the flame alive...

In public, U.S. officials insisted they had no tolerance for graft. But in the Lessons Learned interviews, they admitted the U.S. government looked the other way while Afghan power brokers - allies of Washington - plundered with impunity.

...The expectations got ratcheted down a little more, hoping that the Afghan government would get a little closer to something resembling a functioning state that would not collapse the moment we left.

It is not for lack of trying or lack of studying and attempting to adapt our efforts to be effective within the local culture. In 2010, the Pentagon started assembling Cultural Support Teams, a secret pilot program to insert women alongside Special Operations soldiers battling in Afghanistan. The Army reasoned that women could play a unique role on Special Ops teams: accompanying their male colleagues on raids and, while those soldiers were searching for insurgents, questioning the mothers, sisters, daughters and wives living at the compound.

The United States has allocated more than $133 billion to build up Afghanistan - more than it spent, adjusted for inflation, to revive the whole of Western Europe with the Marshall Plan after World War II. Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have deployed to Afghanistan, many repeatedly. Of those, 2,300 died there and 20,589 were wounded in action, according to Defense Department figures.

Given the era he's probably acting in, his teeth would be decayed, missing and they sure wouldn't be white like those.

about has a new commercial out for a boutique distillery. I don't really
get it. She is with two friends, and they are sitting at a table, with a
martini in front of each of them. Staring into space, Ms Pelaton
robotocally tells her friends that this gin is really smooth. Then
proceeds to shoot the entire martini down, while her friends stare at
her and mumble something about the evening was going to be interesting.

The solution to this obvious. This is a clear-cut case of market failure.

The only thing to do is to permit Hollywood to make their woman-hating pap for general sale, but to ensure a federal subsidy for right-thinking films and will be guaranteed wide distribution.

Ah, thanks!!

A while back I listened to the Joe Rogan (I know) interview with Dan Ackroyd and it turns out Ackroyd is wayyyy into the supernatural, and knows all this stuff about UFO/alien sightings, ghost encounters, and even had an experience with a ghost in a previous home. Kinda wild listening to him chat about this in detail years after Ghostbusters.

I actually sat and cried reading his father's statement.

21 y.o. Airman Apprentice Cameron Walters graduated Great Lakes on November 22, and hadn't been at Pensacola Naval Station but a brief time. He was following in his retired Navy dad's footsteps.


On Thursday night, he and his dad video chatted. His father said his boy proudly told him he had passed the exam qualifying him to stand watch and help secure building entrances at NAS.


When news broke the next morning of shots being fired at the base, Shane Walters called his son's cellphone repeatedly throughout the day. There was no answer. He learned later his son was standing watch at the classroom building when he was killed.


God bless and comfort that dad and family. I can't even imagine.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but only the "right person" could tell the angry neighbors that they had to shut up and accept the loss of the ER.

Somebody who checked all the right boxes, including having the right last name?

The hospital was losing money hand over fist, and wanted out from under the burden of running a Level I ER in a mostly diverse neighborhood. Those ER's are usually full of people who don't pay, but not just "anybody" can tell the neighbors to shut the hell up and beat it. This is something Larry Elder could explain better than I can.

And the GOP will remain the same, based on current trends. Recall that the more ridiculous the Dems, the less responsive the GOP has to be. "What, you're going to vote for THEM? Oh, actually, no, we have no agenda and will not be tying ourselves to real objectives, thanks for asking."

I assume it was drained outdoors and cleaned before being brought in. It still needs to be skinned, but that would ruin the tranquility of the picture, so they probably deviated from the normal order in the interests of aesthetics.

I'd go with some type of beet.
The greens don't really look carrot or parsnip-like, and there are varieties of elongated beets in addition to the more common (in modern times, anyway) round ones.

62 I like these kitchen still life paintings. They are realistic enough to provide a level of life-like detail while retaining artistic elements of light and position. And being 'household' scenes allows the artist to show the deep wood grain and other details that appear so rich in indoor lighting. They are both effective and attractive.

Radishes are also a possibility. The greens definitely look more like radishes than carrots or parsnips, but I'm still going with beets.

We ate rabbit and squirrel and frogs legs and venison and grouse and all kinds of fish and whatever else we could nab with guns and poles and nets. But the one time my dad and his buddies got a couple snakes and cooked them in strips held over the fire I was dead set against eating any.

Finally coerced into trying a bite, I did not find it to taste chicken-esque and was in no hurry to add it to my regular menu.

128 A good object lesson to watch is taking place this week with the UK elections, for anyone who wonders if a legislature would do anything so stupid that it would cost many members their seats. Remember all the maneuvering and infighting to block Brexit that took place in September - October previous? The Parliament was able to block it temporarily, but at the price of being forced to call new elections. (when they could have put those elections off for 3 years if they had allowed it to go forward)

UK Elections are on Thursday, and estimates are that, from all parties, at least 50 - 80 members of the previous parliament will be tossed out and replaced by pro-Brexiters. This also includes some conservative party members who refused to support brexit, and who have been replaced as a result.

So yes, politicians with puffed up egos commit political suicide quite easily.

I stopped drinking for eight years because my marriage was on the rocks and I was being a shitty father. It was mostly frustration about being in a shitty job but drinking lessened my ability to deal with stress. So I just stopped cold turkey and set up a long term plan to make my life better. And it worked. I drink moderately on the weekends and when I go out but never get hammered. And I saved my marriage and have a great relationship with my children.

290 I figure my upbringing was about halfway between those parents/guardians who keep starved kids in cages and the angelic couple raising happy, well-balanced children. "Halfway" being a broad range... somewhere between.

I didn't think about how bad it was vis-a-vis other families. Loved my family, hated the cruelty. Only after growing up and gaining a broader perspective did I realize, wow! That was really bad!

Yet even then, I find out, bad as it was, many have had it so much worse; it was only averagely cruel for the time and place.

Averagely savagery.

At this point, he would make a pretty good fall guy that could maintain the battle lines within the Democratic Party without tilting that fight one way or another in a loss.

He would hurt the establishment more than the activist left, for sure, but he's so damaged by his own sins (that many will come to think of as unique to him) that he could end up standing a bit apart.

445 Oh, and Biden is going to get smoked like a pack of Kools in Iowa, he and his campaign team have stated they fully expect to lose and aren't really trying very hard there. I think his strategy is to come on strong afterward.

But Iowa is a caucus, so anyone can win by simply playing enough dirty tricks and dumping money into it to flood the caucus. So who knows? Not only is Iowa basically meaningless to the electoral college but their primary election has no reflection upon the will of the voters there beyond occasional coincidence.

He'll also lose New Hampshire.

And he'll lose Nevada.

Yes, he'll probably win South Carolina.

However, Super Tuesday is next, and it includes California. Biden going into California, having lost 3 of the first 4 states (no matter delegate counts) will stink of a loser. He'll lose California and probably a few other Super Tuesday states.

Not sure about this. The old lady just called. Her friend manages a thrift store, and said they just got a whole year's worth of brand new baby clothes. She'll let us use her 50% off discount, and will assess them at a low value, as they're old friends.

It's a great deal, but I'm not sure if I want cursed miscarriage clothes.

I mostly consider Sandler an annoying fuckhead but Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, which I watched as part of a personal Jim Caviezel non homo film festival, was extremely informative of what the local politics were at the time.

515 All of my nephews are estranged from their biological fathers, with good reasons.

They turned out okay, anyway, very much because of good step-fathers.

I've mentioned before, a cabbie we had (last century) in Chicago. In short, during the ride, we talked about his son (picture proudly displayed on dashboard), somehow got on religion (said he was a non-believer). I said something about God as a father, and he cursed about his own cruel father. "Not like the father you had," I managed to say, just before we parted, "but like the father you want to be for your son."

Unnecessary exsanguination causes an imbalance of the four humors. The solution is to flush the sinuses to reduce phlegm and induce vomiting to reduce the biles.

I thought it was a beautiful, albeit minor, moment to have the DiCaprio character glance up at the sky.... puzzled. There was something different, something odd, a change in the atmosphere of some kind, but he couldn't figure out what it was, because... beyond his experience. Same for the audience. (It was the first, very slight 'whoosh' of incoming naval artillery shells.)

I also loved the scene where a mob throws a paving stone through a store window, which had until that moment featured a photo of... Abraham Lincoln.

The Morning Report - 12/9/19

trutrea.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a new week and the top stories are the release of the IG Horowitz Report and the House Judiciary Committee set to charge President Trump with treason. Yes, gentle reader, you read that right: T-R-E-A-S-O-N. These people are truly sick. They are doing more than just playing games; they are playing with fire, here. If I had the ability to hold back and not slam my fist into Jerrold Nadler's gaping maw, I would certainly displace the perpetual slab of pastrami with a microphone and try to get him on record to answer the question "do you realize treason is a capital crime?" Okay, I get it. You turds are doing anything and everything you can to sabotage the President while covering up for your own crimes of sabotaging 2016 and then Trump's nascent presidency, which for the record, come within a red nether-hair's breadth of actual dictionary definition treason. Meanwhile, we still have hearings set for today, which you gave the Republicans on the committee essentially zero time to prepare for, dumping thousands of pages of evidence at the last minute. Not that that would matter since the committees are a farce of both fairness and legal precedent.

The Democrats have ensnared themselves in their own trap. For over three years, everything they have done to rig the election and then sabotage this president has failed, and spectacularly so. And since impeachment was promised even before Trump took the oath of office, impeachment is what they are going to have to deliver. But invoking treason is truly crossing a line. For argument's sake, let's say the House votes to impeach - and the jury is still out on if they even have the votes (although I suspect they do and the scuttlebutt that they don't is a head-fake), and then he is exonerated in the Senate. What then? Forget the shmoo-like bespectacled "G-d-cursed chimptato hybrid" screaming at the clouds. Will the Antifarians turn into Weathermen 2, Electric Boogaloo? I almost feel the Democrats would cheer that on, if not intentionally engaging in all of this to enable exactly that. As I said, they are playing with fire here.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

Yes, we all want the bad guys to pay a price.

But, first of all, let's not beat up our own people based on partial quotes. I think that Trump's instincts are right about a trial - he is going to win, and this way he gets some licks in on the other side. But I also think that it is better to have it over and done with.

Draw this thing out for months and making it ugly - because you know the Dems will lie and cover up and the press will push their story - is not necessarily the best thing for the country.

Quid pro quo failed.

Bribery failed.

It's polling worse and worse, so they keep upping the ante.

Treason will fail, too. Making the charges more extreme doesn't change the fact that no one believes the charges.

But it's a sure bet that censure is off the table. you can't charge treason and just settle for censure.

You are projecting, worse still you don't realize that they are communicating in a different language than you.

When they hint at "treason", it is because they want to change the meaning of the word. The Left has a very long history of deconstructing the language and converting words into emotional triggers where the emotion has little to do with the word's original meaning when used in a structured language.

The idea here is conjure up manipulative emotions for those who understand that there is concrete definition of "treason", but more importantly, they are preparing the word to have a different emotion among their usual clients they routinely manipulate.

Most people don't know what "treason" is, but there is an amount of strong emotions behind the utterance of that word.

Look at the word "racist". A generation ago, someone throwing that word at you would end up sifting their stool before heading off to the orthodontist. Now "racist" doesn't have any meaning other than being used as an emotional trigger, and even that trigger has lost most if not all of its effect just in time when the world is recognizing that those who have been slinging around the word "racist" all the time, are indeed bona fide racists (in the traditional sense).

In that way, "treason" might be receiving the same treatment, use it while it has some emotional clout against their enemy, and when the word has been abused sufficiently that it no longer holds any meaning, that is when we discover the actual legal treason when the indictments start rolling out. If/When there is a day of reckoning among the coup d' etat actors, the word "treason" will only solicit a yawn.

117 Are you ready for the most cynical prognostication for the near future?


Well here goes...


Horowitz report is released Monday and it is a complete and total whitewash.



Lindsey Graham's judiciary committee hearing cements the theory that the LE/IC apparatus did nothing wrong and acted reasonably given....



....The findings of the totality of Obama's IC apparatus and signed off on by the GOP lead Senate "Intelligence Committee that Russia materially interfered with the 2016 election....



...The GOP controlled Senate will have simultaneously asserted that the Russians interfered with the 2016 elections and the actions of the LE/IC were reasonable in investigating and spying on the Trump campaign.



This one-two punch takes the sails out of the Barr/Durham investigation and they close up shop sometime early in the new year, just as....



The trial of President Trump starts in the Senate...



...Giving McConnell the whip hand against President Trump in being able to extract from him pretty much anything he wants in order to preserve his Presidency, The Quidest of Quid Pro Quos will ensue...



If Trump agrees to McConnell's terms, the Trump Presidency continues, if not then McConnell whips the Senate against the President and Trump becomes the first President removed from office via impeachment.



Trump agrees to McConnell's terms and we get a neutered President Trump having to dance to the uniparties tune.



We go into the election with Trump/Pence vs Biden/Abrams, Biden/Abrams are able to whip just enough of the the white working class in the rust belt and agitate just enough blacks and POC's to regain PA, WI, MI, take a couple of southern states and win the electoral college and the Presidency descively...



The Donks maintain control of the House by a couple seats, they regain the Senate by two seats, relegating McConnell to minority leader, a position he excels at as he can horse trade votes to keep the pork and spice flowing to the GOP puppet masters, which he can't do in a divided congress or with lean majorities in both chambers.



Having lost, Trump is indicted 5 minutes after Biden/Abrams is sworn in by the SDNY, arrested at his home in Mara Lago a day later and the world is treated to the image of the first mug shot of a President of the United States, Trump is tried and convicted by a NY jury, and spends the remaining days of his life in prison.



The SDNY and various other DA's spend considerable time and effort harassing his family from there on out.

It is not on the calendar. Sunday Nadler said he might hold it this week, but Nadler is a liar. He wants to pretend that his mind isn't made up, that he is being judicious.

Thursday is the last voting day before the Christmas break. Nancy could extend the session until the following week but I don't see it.

They are having a hearing today in Nadler's committee - Monday is not a usual business day. So they are doing that for a reason. I expect they vote the bill out of committee tomorrow to give a full day before voting in the full House on Thursday.

These people are so brainwashed - they pray at the alter of "diversity" for diversity's sake. It is bizarre. Your job as mayor is not to arbitrarily f#$@ around with the social/cultural make-up of your cities. How can they not get that?

It was probably based on false optimism and the expectation that someone called "Inspector General" would act with honesty and try to root out wrongdoing.

276 So with all that talk about fidelity to the Constitution from Nancy and crew, they've re-written it to get Trump:


The Constitution specifically defines 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."

The House Judiciary Committee report, however, expands that
definition to include what it calls "betrayal,"
and declares: "Although
the Framers did not intend impeachment for good faith disagreements on
matters of diplomacy, they were explicit that betrayal of the Nation
through schemes with foreign powers justified that remedy."

The phrase "schemes with foreign powers" is sufficiently vague to
include the "quid pro quo" plan that Democrats allege the president
attempted to make with Ukraine, trading U.S. aid for investigation into a
political opponent.




They are now saying negotiations with a foreign state - quid pro quo - is akin to treason. This is something every president does.

Post Kavanaugh, Graham, as head of the Senate Judciaiy committee, should have taken action on those who perjured themselves before his committee, and those who enabled it.

Instead he did nothing about it. Not one thing. He didn't have to wait on a FISA report to do anything about that.

Biden's impeachable offenses have been made the Gold Standard already. But, yeah, the next Democratic president needs to have impeachment proceedings ready to go upon swearing in and any Republican who isn't on board has to go. Need to get that latter part underway this cycle, too.

345 I was amused, but not surprised, that the FBI was "partnering" with the USPS in seeking fingerprints.

AOSHQ posted a story 10 days or so ago about genealogy services providing their information to the government. My take is that the government already has enough DNA samples to narrow down many criminal acts to a relatively small number of people.

My college roommate and best friend recently retired after serving as ambassador to two important countries. The FBI interviewed me twice to check into his background and took my fingerprints during the first interview, which was around 1985. I've no doubt they've updated my file a number of times since then and I don't think it's too much to assume that they already have my DNA.

My beautiful wife is giving me the 23AndMe and AncestryDNA tests for Christmas. If I were in my early 20s, I wouldn't take the tests. However, I turn 60 in April and believe that the government knows more about me than I do, so I'm submitting the tests.

@marwilliamson
Vaccines save lives absolutely. But asking for an independent commission to review vaccine safety is not "anti-vaxx." It's "safe-vaxx," which is totally understandable given over $4B paid in vaccine injury claims. Why are so many people so invested in protecting Big Pharma? Odd.

415 The Epoch Times is independent and is owned and operated largely by Chinese nationals (ex-pats), largely in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the US. The people who own the Epoch Times are virulently anti-communist (they were part of the Nationalist forces if you go back far enough) and are sympathetic to the Falun Gong.

They are not a Taiwanese/Chinese or Falun Gong organization, though their owners are very sympathetic in that direction. Their primary thing seems to be anticommunism and surfacing human rights violations in China. They run dailies in Hong King and Taiwan, along with New York and Washington. They run a weekly for the rest of the US.

Recently, they have come out as fairly pro-Trump and virulently anti-coup, apparently because they view Trump as a holy force sent down to defeat communism.

If they do it, the reason will be (they hope) to strengthen their case with independents, and weak-minded citizens. My guesses at their private rationale:

To charge Trump with both of the impeachable crimes specifically called-out in the Constitution (He's BAD);

To charge him with impeachable crimes no President before has been charged with by the House - bribery and treason (He's REALLY BAD);

To pad the number of charges, to get the number higher than what the House charged Clinton with (four?) (He's REALLY REALLY BAD, THE WORST EVER!)

440 There is no such thing as an Evangelical Protestant Church.

You have Evangelicals, who are largely non-denominational Free-Will Dispensationalists (aka "The American Religion"), and you have Protestants who have a Confession (e.g. London, Westminster, et al) and have as a doctrinal statement recognition of the Doctrines of Grace.
Posted by: Blue Bird of F'ing Joy at December 09, 2019 09:14 AM (lD3vL)


I assume you know what you're talking about so thanks for the knowledge. I'd always used Protestant as a term meaning people who believed in Jesus who weren't catlickers.

But just so I'm clear: Evangelicals don't believe in confession to remove the stain of sin, even a general group one? Because that's a BFD IMO.

It's stupid through and through, but another stupidity is that both Judea and Egypt were Roman provinces at the time, and there were no restrictions on travel.

Speaking for my 60 plus years of evangelical, confession and repentance are a very big deal indeed. One is to always come before the Father in repentance of sin, and ask forgiveness. We believe that in doing so, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins, and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness.

They, in their delusions about the nature of man's relationship to power, believe they are creating heaven on Earth.

We who have no such trust in their false god can see that this is not unique or new, but a repetition of the extreme political movements of the last century, which not only created hell for their subjects, but also caused the largest war in all of history.

I think it's better to say that Evangelicals and some more mainstream protestants, such as the various flavors of Baptists, do not believe that there are such things as "sacraments", a physical act which results in a theological remission of sin. (maybe there are better definitions) Theses groups are theologically descended from those known as the Anabaptists, who have been around and in opposition as long as the more orthodox beliefs have been followed.

They DO believe that Confession is a good thing to do, and is required when someone has harmed someone else.

The people who own the Epoch Times are virulently anti-communist (they were part of the Nationalist forces if you go back far enough) and are sympathetic to the Falun Gong.

They are not a Taiwanese/Chinese or Falun Gong organization, though their owners are very sympathetic in that direction. Their primary thing seems to be anticommunism and surfacing human rights violations in China. They run dailies in Hong King and Taiwan, along with New York and Washington. They run a weekly for the rest of the US.

Recently, they have come out as fairly pro-Trump and virulently anti-coup, apparently because they view Trump as a holy force sent down to defeat communism.

And why did I believe it? Ah, right, they didn't mention he was a freaking Arab from Saudi Arabia, so I just figured some poor schlub in a secure armed area went non-linear and used his service weapon.

509 But just so I'm clear: Evangelicals don't believe in confession to remove the stain of sin, even a general group one? Because that's a BFD IMO.

Protestants descend from Luther, Calvin and those who broke free from Rome, their birth is on October 31, 1517. When speaking of "Confession" it isn't the booth and a priest version, rather it is a doctrinal statement, a catechism, the denomination's systematized faith statement. Protestants, traditionally stand behind the Five Solas, and share various levels of high church.


Baptists claim their provenance from John The Baptist, so their thread doesn't go through Rome. Baptists branched about a century or so ago from roughly abiding with the 1689 London Confession of Faith, to syncretize into an Evangelical denomination.

Evangelicals are usually associated with "Big Box" since they reject orthodoxy w/r/t Election and substituted it with various forms of Pelagianism, Arminianism or rarely four points of Amyrauldism (Calvinist TULIP without the L) which focuses on Free Will decisions (Finneyism) and thus work on manipulating the masses into Heaven through outreach, programs, concerts and sanguine homilies.

Evangelicals usually are either ignorant of or hostile to the Doctrines of Grace and such Evangelicals and Reformed (traditional Protestants) don't agree on much outside of the deity, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

As far as I know, Evangelicals look at a sinner as drowning and are capable of receiving a life preserver of salvation once convinced it will indeed save them. Protestants look at the sinner as drowned and dead and needs full resuscitation.

Evangelicals believe that man comes to salvation by his own free will, Protestants say a man is dragged in to salvation kicking and screaming in protest.

Of course the media were silent about all this.

Jack says stuff then turns around and says he didn't say it. Unfortunately the AoS comment system makes it difficult to pull relevant comments.

Most recently he said the IG writes the conclusions to the IG reports, which makes sense, but when the mid year exam IG report came out he jumped on that the IG didn't write the conclusion to that report (because that conclusion was a whitewash).

Then it was "wait for the FISA IG report" , which has now been going on for a year and a half! And now we are getting "the IG is limited".

I half think JS only purpose is to string things out so the deplorables don't get too rowdy.

This was the difference between what Christ taught and then what the Church taught for a while but lost it's way.

I didn't vote for Trump due to some supposed prophesy and I'm sure not voting for him again for that reason. I'm voting due to who his opponents are (just like last time) and what they say they will do if they're elected (just like last time).

Quote IV

"The Internet as we know it was developed by taxpayer-funded research, using taxpayer-funded grants in taxpayer-funded labs.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is a scuzzy POS. It's bad enough he is proceeding with this sham impeachment of POTUS Trump. Now, he's sowing seeds of doubt about the election results.

After three years of using trumped-up allegations of Russian collusion to try and stymie President Donald Trump’s agenda, it appears congressional Democrats are scheming to pull the same stunt again in case the president wins reelection next year.

It’s hard to draw any other conclusion given the recent rhetoric of the party’s top figures, including House Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler.

Speaking Sunday morning on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” he accused the president of posing “a threat to our election” and suggested that, if ultimately acquitted by the Senate, Trump “will do everything he can to make it not make it a fair election.”

The Ace of Spades Cob Dental Plan is second to none. I'm hoping this guy isn't our In-Network Provider.

In Alaska, a dentist is accused of fraud, unnecessarily sedating patients, and performing a dental procedure on a woman while riding a wheeled, motorized hoverboard, authorities say.

Seth Lookhart, 34, is charged with felony Medicaid fraud and reckless endangerment.

From AP:

A former patient testified Wednesday at his trial that she was angered when an investigator showed her an unauthorized 2016 video of Lookhart extracting one of her teeth while she was sedated and he was riding the hoverboard. Veronica Wilhelm was “pretty livid” about the dentist’s actions, she testified.

“When did Dr. Lookhart get your approval to take out your tooth on a hoverboard,” prosecutor Joan Wilson asked in court.

A slow weekend. President Trump trolling like a champ.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—There wasn't much happening in the world today, so Trump simply sat at his desk looking for something to do.

Then he got an idea. Picking up his desk phone, he dialed a number and waited for the man on the other end to pick up.

Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick was sitting around nervously waiting for his phone to ring at long last. As his ringtone, the USSR anthem, began to play, Kaepernick lunged for the phone and picked up on the first ring. "Hello?" he said, attempting to sound casual.

"Hi, uh, yes, is this a Mr. Kaepernick?" Trump said, stifling laughter.

"Yeah, it's me. Who's this?" Kaepernick said, trying not to get his hopes up.

There may be a shortage of potatoes. That's a bummer.Early cold snap hurt Idaho potatoes. Early cold snap? I thought the world was hot, hot, hot.

A cold snap may put a freeze on French fries as farmers deal with smaller potato crops this year.

From an extended rainy period in the Red River Valley of North Dakota, to an early frost in Idaho, weather negatively affected the harvesting of potatoes, reducing the expected haul in the U.S. by 6% as compared to 2018, according to the Department of Agriculture.

As of early November, only 73% of total crops had been harvested.

In Idaho, the state that grows one-third of all potatoes produced in the U.S., a freeze hit between Oct. 9 and 11.

Cierra Brown estimates her commute to work would only take about 25 minutes if she had a car. That’s part of the reason she returned to McDonald’s in January: Her car had broken down and she needed money. But at McDonald’s, Brown only earns $9.50 per hour as a cashier, which barely helps cover rent and is far from enough to solve her vehicular woes. Without a car, one of Brown’s main headaches is getting to work. Her typical bus commute to McDonald’s takes as long as two hours each way.

I joined the Fight for $15 and a Union because I’ve worked in the fast food industry for 14 years—about half my life—and all these jobs have a few things in common. They all paid poverty wages. None of these jobs have given me the opportunity to come together with my coworkers in a union, or receive any healthcare benefits. And the only way we'll create change in these jobs is workers coming together and demanding it.


Once upon a time I worked in a restaurant for a short period of time. I knew that it wasn't going to be a career for me. It didn't take me 14 years to realize it doesn't pay well.

I'm pretty simplistic when it comes to art. This is simple, but it isn't for me. Is it for you?

Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan’s latest provocation, a sculptural intervention that consists of a banana duct-taped to the wall of Perrotin’s booth at Art Basel in Miami Beach, has been sold. The work, titled Comedian (2019), had been priced at $120,000; like most of Cattelan’s works, it exists in an edition of three, plus two artist’s proofs. Two of the three editions of Comedian had been sold by Wednesday afternoon, and according to a Perrotin rep, the gallery is “currently speaking with a museum that wants to acquire the third.” The work comes with a certificate of authenticity, and owners of the work replace the banana as they see fit.

Well that didn't take long. Buh-bye art.

Is it alright to tell your children there is a Santa Claus?

In general, we try to be pretty honest people. I mean we're journalists. But when it comes to Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the tooth fairy, or whatever it is in your family ... is it bad to lie to your kids to keep the magic alive?

Cory's gotten deep into the Santa ruse: setting out the reindeer snack, calling into the Santa tracker on Christmas Eve. Anya wrote notes impersonating the Tooth Fairy and when that didn't work, she even set up a phone call! The con has gotten really long, and the kids might be on to us. We know we're not alone.

Here are four tips for handling that awkward moment when your kids start doubting the world of magic. Luckily Rosemarie Truglio, a childhood development specialist and senior vice president of Education and Research at Sesame Workshop, is going to help us figure out how — and how long — to keep the magic alive.

'Alcohol may have saved humanity from extinction, scientists claim'

Humanity’s ancestors may have been saved from extinction by alcohol, scientists have suggested

In a new book, called Alcohol And Humans: A Long And Social Affair, professors Dr Kim Hockings and Dr Robin Dunbar say that African apes who lived around 10 million years ago evolved to metabolise ethanol, the chemical compound in alcohol.

These primates eventually gave rise not only to humans but also to chimps, bonobos and gorillas, all of which share the ability to break down booze. The common ape ancestor evolved to carry a protein that made metabolising ethanol more efficient, which allowed them to eat overripe fermented fruits that fell on the ground.

According to Dr Hockings and Dr Dunbar, these primates were in competition for survival with rival monkey species who were able to eat unripe fruit that was still on plants.

I don't know about extinction, sure has kept the advertising firms in cash.

Do you have someone hard to shop for on your Christmas gift list? Do you have money burning a hole in your bucket? Oh boy does The ONT have the gift for you.

An average mug costs between $5 and $10, while a nice travel mug goes for around $20, or maybe a little more if you’re feeling fancy. So how on earth does a company justify a smart mug that costs a whopping $180?

While it might sound outlandish, this question isn’t purely hypothetical, because thanks to the Ember’s second-gen Travel Mug, the value of a $180 smart mug is something that actually needs to be examined. So what makes this travel mug so smart?

27 So, totally OT but it's an open thread, so...

I was watching a program from 1986 about education and technology. There was one little segment with a woman who ran the technology for an under-performing school in the San Francisco inner city. It underscores just how profoundly stupid so very many education policies and funding decisions are, and for how long this has been true.

We have two computer labs. We have one computer lab that was purchased through federal funding, and that was specifically for the low socioeconomic students that had low test scores. ... I realized that 80% of our population were using these computers, but 20% couldn't because their scores were too high. ... In our school, they have been very helpful the remedial [case], and like I said, we had 80% of students who had been using them and there scores have gone up so now it's 50%.

She goes on to talk about whipping up more grant money to furnish a lab for the normal or high achievers, since they were forbidden by policy from using the equipment furnished for struggling students.

Mind-boggling.

28 Hey everybody.

Since there wasn't a movie thread this weekend, I wanted to ask everyone, has anyone here seen the movie "A Ghost Story"? It came out about two years ago I believe, and stars Casey Affleck (who's under a sheet almost the entire movie) and Rooney Mara. Supposedly there's very little dialogue in the entire film.

I read about it this past weekend. It sounds very interesting, but also very sad.

In the book industry, wholesalers and publishers had sites, but the wholesalers required a password and an account, and publishers blushed their books and gave the PRC.

50 The "Fight for 15" crowd needs to be very careful what it wishes for.

Have they seen the interest rates and capital markets lately? Ever since the Great Recession, access to capital has been very easy (indeed, too easy) for blue chips. An automatic burger joint is possible. It has been demonstrated. It actually works fairly well. The problem is the cost of the machines. At $10 an hour for the employees, the machines don't make sense.

Up that by half, factor in low interest rates and easy money for major corps, and you're gonna see fast food automation almost faster than you can blink.

I had a friend from Connecticut who moved to Brooklyn with some other friends. I visited them and for breakfast, we went to a soul food restaurant. They had grits on the menu. I ordered them. They were good.

She had heard of grits, but never tried them. She tried some of mine. She did that thing you do with grits (munge them, I guess - you don't chew 'em).

She sat silently for about 15 seconds and said, "Well, we don't have *that* in New England."

118 Hi Jewells
Do you still have the Ace keychains?
I need at least one.

119 Cierra will not have to worry about walking 2hrs each way to her job if she keeps this up. She'll simply be replaced by automated machines.

How is it that all these fools think that these jobs are supposed to be full-time careers? Anyone with half a brain has always known that these types of jobs are simply for teenagers to make a few bucks and learn about the responsibility of working a job. Who the hell starting teaching people that they should aspire to be a burger flipper?

This! And by wasting her time at "Fight for 15", all she is doing is making herself toxic to other potential employers.

She would be much better off using that "spare time" to attend night school and upgrade her education.

That is wonderful, Jewels! Tell us about it!

123 Speaking of the Skandi Girl David Hogg, I assume y'all saw this?

124 Winston, getting more of the medallions in. Hopefully in the next few weeks. I will make a dozen of them. Will let you know.

Awww, Hrothgar! You've been on my heart recently. I hope all is well with you.

Posted by: Ladyl at December 08, 2019 10:30 PM (TdMsT)

126 Yeah, I'm gonna pass on breakfast.

127 Good evening NaCly.

128 Hey, I also have another question for everyone, if it's okay.

Does anyone have any experience with flex jobs.com? I want to sign up, found some good leads there, but I'm not sure how reputable they are.

I'd like to have a ready backup in case this job I have goes south, although in fairness things have been going better lately.

But the question still remains: what are *you* doing it about, Dame?
Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at December 08, 2019 10:09 PM (rCIE4)

The National Sport of Virtue Signallers.

Raising awareness.

I don't recommend it, Joe. You lock up and vomit your buffers all over the floor enough as it is. Don't change your routine. You're barely equilibrated as it is.

132 Bravo would be my first choice, PSA second, Bushmaster third.

Thank you sir!


Seems like my ratings are pretty close to accurate anyway. Sometime you just need a second set of eyes.

How are you?

134 Up that by half, factor in low interest rates and easy money for major corps, and you're gonna see fast food automation almost faster than you can blink.

And the one or two hourly employees who remain to operate and service the new machines will get $15 per hour, or maybe better, but Cierra ain't going to be one of them.

135 Empty and uneventful. How was yours?
Posted by: Insomniac at December 08, 2019 10:16 PM (NWiLs)

I had a really great snarky response, but since it's close to Christmas, I decided to just say it's good to see you here!

Posted by: Commissar Hrothgar at December 08, 2019 10:32 PM (BiNEL)

136 Thank you Jewells. I have some things I'm going to need and love your work.

137 A cold snap may put a freeze on French fries as farmers deal with smaller potato crops this year.
From an extended rainy period in the Red River Valley of North Dakota, to an early frost in Idaho, weather negatively affected the harvesting of potatoes, reducing the expected haul in the U.S. by 6% as compared to 2018, according to the Department of Agriculture.

As of early November, only 73% of total crops had been harvested.

In Idaho, the state that grows one-third of all potatoes produced in the U.S., a freeze hit between Oct. 9 and 11.



Damn. Goin' to be a vodka shortage this year.

Glad you are happy.

Is it the Chiefs? The playoff teams for NCAA?

Your husband has made a full recovery and you need to sign off soon?
