..limiting prices thru gov't coercion isn't something I'd like to see anyway.

Well, then I shouldn't even mention my hopes for an EO forcing all ice cream companies to produce a coconut pistachio offering.

Jack is Back!

I think it was Clarice who was the first to theorize "inside job" on the Podesta emails. Right out of the gate. Correct me if I am wrong.

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen..

(whelp, I'm first to double post on this thread...)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Well, if the lefties are going to freak out about this then I assume that they will welcome the dismantling of the CIA and a newer, more professional agency with a narrowly-drawn focus.

Egg McMuffin did it.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I still want a review of the Michael Hastings car crash. I think there is a good chance that was an assassination.

henry,

I would pay a serious chunk of my divorce settlement if that guy got arrested.

Increasing My Paranoia

Like looking in the mirror and seeing a po-lice car.

DebinNC

Another nugget for the paranoia file ... Reportedly BOzo admin's 3rd and finally successful Trump FISA attempt occurred on Oct. 15, which was the last day for then DOJ Attorney General National Security Division John Carlin. The current interim took his place the next day. I can imagine Carlin having severe qualms re the previous failed FISA attempts, opting out entirely from the October "streamlined" one, and getting out of Dodge asap.

henry

consider using "AI" to trip on keywords and start surveillance on domestic political enemies. Kind of what FB and Twitter do within their realms, but here by the govt across the board. That is what they set up.

jimmyk

Reposted from the previous thread, on Ryancare aka Barrycare lite:

Avik Roy is not a reliable witness. RG, I'm not a perfectionist, but the one thing I do feel strongly about is enshrining slippery slopes into law. This could be a beautiful bill, but if it confirms the notion that health care (or health insurance) is a right, then all sorts of damage can come from that down the road. Ideally the federal government wouldn't even be involved in health insurance. We're stuck with Medicare and Medicaid, but outside of that (and much of Medicaid can be left to the states), I don't see a role for the federal government.

Captain Hate

Every time Sandy brings up Saint Michael it reminds me of one of my favorite places:

I think its a potential intrusion tool, but it wasnt the malware that broke into the dnc that much was clear from wordfences analyses as well as Robert m lee,

When I think about it I can't remember when was the last time that I learned anything from the MSM that

(A) could be relied upon as factual and

(B) I didnt learn about in more depth from alternate media sources.

Great to see Media credibility getting murdered today.

Captain Hate

I'd again like to thank all the gutless Senate Repukes for confirming LoLy as AG like a bunch of craven cowards and abrogating their responsibilities by inflicting this fat cankled partisan hack on the country. Here they are: Kelly Ayotte, Hatch, Goober, Collins, Flake, Kirk, Portman (ugh), the great Thad Cochran, Johnson and McTurtle. Shocking that McRINO wasn't part of this although he was probably back in his pre-election pretend conservative mode.

Was she ever asked about what she would do if asked to submit a FISA request based solely on domestic politics?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Well, THIS schedule has an interesting mix:

TRUMP TUESDAY:
-call w Kenya
-lunch w Lindsey Graham
-Tom Cotton & David Perdue
-House Deputy Whip team
-Richard Trumka AFL–CIO
-Boy Scouts.

You betcha, TM

Old Lurker

a) Look at all those "click here and listen in" capabilities revealed at Wiki today.

b) Clinton B, Clinton H, Sandy Berger, Obama, Jarrett, Brennan, Clapper, McMuffin, Koskinin, Holder, Lynch, Schumer, Reid, Pelosi....stop me when you spot a name who would object to using those tools for political gain. I can continue with more names if I must.

Clarice Feldman

JIB, I don't know if I was the first, but it seemed utterly possible to me from the outset that someone--possibly a Bernie supporter or an honest person--on the inside of the DNC was angry and got those emails to wikileaks.

Clarice Feldman

Iggy, what Free Republic link?

DebinNC

I followed BOzo's daily schedule regularly and was struck at how infrequently it showed him eating with dignitaries visiting the WH, beyond state dinners. The "sick" part of him imo requires feeling in total control at all times, and normal situations like sharing a meal and chatting with strangers must be almost unbearable since his schedule showed he almost never did so.

Thanks, Iggy!

Deb, note from Chicago:

Tell Deb that publishing a schedule for iBama would've invited scrutiny of the WH logs of comings and goings. Those lunches and meetings took place, just mostly with Ayers and the like.

Is it just me, or does CLAPPER seem to be ALL HAT and NO CATTLE?? He seems to be a dim bulb with OBAMA SYNDROME.
Obama Syndrome is that of a (REDACTED)WAD, who thinks he's genius.

Carlos Slim, Bezos, Zucker and all their underlings: How does Trump's ass taste?

jimmyk

explains what can and what cannot be achieved thru reconciliation

Can someone explain (I don't have the patience for learning the intricacies of the legislative rules): Wasn't the entire piece of [redacted] passed via reconciliation? So can't it be repealed via reconciliation as well? And once repealed, can't Republicans make any bill they want and dare the Democrats to vote against it?

In other words, it seems to me the Rs are giving the Ds veto power on some aspects of 404Care by undoing it piecemeal. But no doubt I am misunderstanding something.

Very nice sample first chapter to Finders Keepers. Ordered it and recommend it.


[Could not seem to order the full book from the sample on my iPhone Kindle reader. I thought that typically a button allowed that. So I went to the webpage.]

Captain Hate

Maybe Goober will get a dossier of Soros connections that might embarrass his cuddle pal if they ever got released.

James D

SBW, thanks so much!

I think it's a fun book - much lighter in tone than my other series.

Yeah, the Kindle app on iPhone/iPad doesn't let you buy directly. I'm not sure why they do it that way.

lyle

The "sick" part of him imo requires feeling in total control at all times, and normal situations like sharing a meal and chatting with strangers must be almost unbearable since his schedule showed he almost never did so it would opened up too many opportunities for other people to size up what a weak intellect he possessed along with other manifestations of a malignant narcissistic fraud.

Slight edit.

Lol.

Anyone else but me think of Nick Danger in the old Firesign Theater spoofs when you here the word "dossier" tossed around?

Trump is intentionally and conspicuously "yo' mama"-ing BOzo, which he can't continue to ignore imo without losing face with his prog homies. The Dozens game doesn't include a "hide out and stay mute" provision iirc.

This is from a few threads back and wanted to second all the comments to your fantastic piece at your blog.

From your comment in that thread:

>>>The whole thing makes me wonder if things were always that corrupt and we just didn't realize it because pre-internet media outlets had the power and control to hide it. Or are things getting worse? A little of both I suppose.<<<

I think it has been "always that corrupt" and it is getting worse. I suppose my "red-pilling" was when I started to look into the Oil for Food scandal. It went well beyond scandal actually and should be called a war crime. A bakers dozen countries had criminal investigations into it and people from all over the world went to jail over it.

Other than the oh-so-predictable/perfunctory slams on Prez Trump, this is a well written companion piece to Wretchard.

dublindave

I've been a progressive since I first came to this country, however, after learning about my former President, Barrack Obama ordering the illegal wiretapping of a Presidential election campaign I am changing my political affiliation.


What the former President did is a felony and a direct assault on our Democracy. I am now calling for the immediate arrest and incarceration of President Barrack Obama and anyone involved in this disgusting practice.

Some people will doubt my sincerity and given the way I have behaved here over the last few years I would not blame them. But, as of Friday I will be a registered Republican.

Democrats are truly evil.

"You still suck, doucheydave"


I deserve that. I'm an asshole.

I can't believe how blinded I've been. Without election integrity we have no Democracy. And now I'm starting to think that the C.I.A et al have been setting Trump up from the beginning.


I'm done.


I'll take my knocks from the right, but I'm here to stay.


Now, where do I go for the lobotomy?

It's good to be you, OL.

Hayward at Powerline quotes a Chitown (where else?) portfolio manager in this piece that is worth your time:

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/03/are-republicans-blowing-it-on-health-care.php

A bit (but do click):

Instead I want to point something out that seems to be missing from the discussion of health care. And that is the fact that politicians don’t seem to understand just what insurance is. Insurance is a financial service that pools money (premiums) from a cohort of individuals in order to provide protection from rare, but financially devastating, contingencies.
lyle

I think this has been linked. If so, consider yourself flattered (imitation and all that):

I do believe on the other thread, Lyle.

Old Lurker

Rush is on that exact rant right now, Lyle.

So easy for us to understand. So difficult for the ruling class.

lyle

Well, okay then. I've committed no JOM etiquette breach for today...

Old Lurker

The day is young even here in the east, Lyle.

So difficult for the ruling class.

As the good Prof. Reynolds sez: "there's not enough opportunity for graft"™ in an insurance system that actually makes sense, OL.

Stacy, an Idaho-based woman who serves as a co-administrator of The Liberal Prepper group, became interested in prepping in the months leading up to Election Day. As a single mom of a kindergartner, she says she now worries about her son's education (especially with Betsy DeVos as education secretary) and the possibility of him learning hate rhetoric from some of Trump's followers.

Parody is dead. Long live parody!

Dave, HYANNISPORT is where you go for your Kennedy Daughter lobotomy.
Then to St Colleta's here in Wisconsin until you die. The Kennedy's are/were as ethical as Obama.

Perhaps I'm being a bit too hasty on judging on poor Stacy's plight. With this new SecEd, her kindergartner son might miss out on learning of all those homosexual acts that Arne Duncan's cabal wanted taught to him.

GUS

Lyle, I'd like you to meet Kevin Jennings, Kevin Jennings this is Lyle!!!

Mr Jennings is going to be YOUR "safe schools" Czar. Mr Jennings is our resident expert on FISTING. No not twisting, FISTING.

Obama actually wanted JENNINGS to be his SAFE SCHOOLS CZAR.

Which CZARS has Mr Trump hired thus far??

DebinNC

American Spectator: "Lawyers from the National Security Division in the Department of Justice then drew up an application. They took it to the secret US court that deals with intelligence, the Fisa court, named after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They wanted permission to intercept the electronic records from two Russian banks."

That's why I think it's very suspicious that the head of the NSD's last day on the job was Oct. 15 - the day the BBC says they finally got the FISA warrant after two rejections from another FISA judge.

lyle

No judgments until we are further along in the process for me.

The longer the process takes the potential for worse outcomes increases, IMO.

Frau Karl Martel

GUS - Chubby Checkers is not too happy with Kevin Jennings' thievery: "Let's fist again like we did last summer" is definitely intellectual property theft.

Safe schools for whom?
Pfui!

You know you FIST soooo good, FIST SO GOOD, you know you FIST soooo fine, FIST SO FINE,

Yesterday, male coworker referred to female coworker #1 who has a French last name as "Mademoiselle" last-name, just trying to be cute. Female coworker #2 bristled, complaining that there should not be separate titles for women based on whether they are married, this is 2017 after all.

I'm thinking that if I see her here tomorrow it might not be a good idea to say "hey, I thought you broads were taking the day off today".

Reminds me of that Joe "Leo" Pesce line from Lethal W... "They [redact] you at the drive through."

The Ryan cabal in the House---- need to keep their eyes on the midterm elections "They [redact] you at the mid-terms."

Tom Bowler

"But ultimately, they offer no proof that the CIA had any hand in hacking the Democrats."

But ultimately we've seen no proof that the Russians hacked the Democrats. Last I heard, the FBI was denied access to DNC servers. Of course we can take Clapper's word that the Russians did it.

mockmook

Tom,

If we can make it look like the Russians are hacking, then so can the Chinese, Isrealis, Iranians, etc.

See where I'm going with this?
