From the last thread, on the media:

But it's not so much the nastiness as the all-pervasiveness and immediacy of it

Also, my impression is that Callender was just a hit man for hire, happy to smear on behalf of whichever side rewarded him. Nowadays the press will only smear Republicans, and apparently with no reward or even prompting by Democrats necessary.

To James about what would happen at a Constitutional Convention were it happening today...James wondered what impact the MSM would play.

Now without wanting to over-glorify the past or the people of the past, I seriously wonder if we could fill a room today with minds and hearts and character comparable to those that produced this country back in 1776-1789?

Sorry Porch,

I've taken lots of iPad photos and movies already, but with the girls off at school I don't know how to post 'em. Very cute little bugger he is tho'. Cocky and already completely at home. He climbs up on top of big Fry like Fry is his own personal play toy and Fry's tail starts wagging in happiness, even tho' Fry appears to be oblivious.

Scout lets out that low guttural 'grrrrr' as I expected she would when Nelson encroaches, but already Nelson is smart enough to leave her be, and then come back and try it again a bit later.

Momma has puppy proofed the house with little gates and such and it's 90% wood floors so he's happy. T'was a long flight from somewhere near the Canadian Border, but Momma says he was not an illegal alien and that the blood coursing thru him is Red, White, and Blue as Old Yeller's.

He pooped twice for me outdoors last night in 10 degree weather on a neighbors snowy driveway. They came out quick and solid and happily reveal that Nelson is not an anal retentive psychotic like Fry, which is another blessing!

I'll ask another dead serious question:

Are we safer, secure in the form of government we thought the Founders intended for us, with or without the tremendous snooping technologies we have given to the NSA, CIA and all those other agencies?

I wonder if we would be safer with fewer all powerful technical powers but with more hands on security like Israel and other get by with?

After investing gazillions of dollars in them and empowering them to know every tiny thing about each of us, name one major turning point foreseen by our CIA and its siblings in the last 50 years?

I do wonder what we have done to ourselves.

daddy

Mark Steyn sitting in for Rush in Hour 1, is saying there is a good possibility this entire Russian collusion nonsense was simply an excuse conceived by the Obama Administration and Hillary in order to provide cover and permission for legal "Watergating" of Trump.

There's never been a doubt in my mind that Russia, not withstanding its actual threats, was specifically concocted as a ruse to infiltrate and monitor every iota of Trump's movements and conversations. To know Obama is to know evil, conniving subterfuge: his trademark!

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/2017/03/23/obama-appears-on-morning-of-obamacare-replacement-vote-to-insist-aca-not-a-job-killer/

"Ultimately, after a century of talk, decades of trying, and a year of bipartisan debate, our generation was the one that succeeded" in passing healthcare reform, Obama declared in a statement issued by his office. "We finally declared that in America, healthcare is not a privilege for a few, but a right for everybody."

"Since the law passed, the pace of healthcare inflation has slowed dramatically," he added. "Prices are still rising, just as they have every year for decades – but under this law, they’ve been rising at the slowest rate in 50 years. Families who get coverage through their employer are paying, on average, thousands of dollars less per year than if costs kept rising as fast as they were before the law. And reality continues to discredit the false claim that this law is in a 'death spiral,' because while it's true that some premiums have risen, the vast majority of marketplace enrollees have experienced no average premium hike at all. And so long as the law is properly administered, this market will remain stable."

Obama argued that the law "is no 'job-killer,' because America’s businesses went on a record-breaking streak of job growth in the seven years since I signed it."

Too good:

The South Carolina Gamecocks upset Duke 88-81 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Blue Devils (No. 2) were the higher seed, but they were at a significant disadvantage playing in Greenville, South Carolina. It was a de facto home game for the Gamecocks.

This round of games was initially scheduled for Greensboro, North Carolina (less than an hour drive from Duke’s campus). The NCAA moved it from the state in response to North Carolina’s HB2 Bathroom Law, which required transgender people to use the bathrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates.

I was not aware of this. Delicious.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

daddy,

I think at some point the "Russia ties" excuse for surveillance was in my list of possibilities.

I also think they were going to try to creat fake Russian connections on that server for Trump tower so that they could accuse him of espionage.

I never want to hear another word from anyone who thinks the President isn't a damned hero.

In other news that only happens in government...

The Kansas City police chief announced his retirement. The city will have to cut him a check for a little shy of $500K.

$230K for ~2500 hours of compensatory time (I assume this is unpaid overtime? He was known to show at crime scenes on his personal Harley in street clothes. Was he being paid for that kind of time?)

$270K for ~1500 hours of vacation time and ~5400 hours of sick time.

His annual salary is about $190K. No idea what his actual pension will be.

Government employees are very astute about gaming the system for their maximum benefit.

He probably spent hours of work time figuring out how to reap the financial rewards he will be getting.

My ex-brother-in-law (sister's ex-husband) once bragged to me that he would be a "triple dipper" (his words) because of getting Navy, Post Office, and National Parks Service pensions.

I was not amused, as he is the most non-self starter I have ever known. The word drone fits him to a tee, and not the type that flies and shoots.

I officially come from a trash state:

In Wake of Alleged Brutal Rape of 14 Year Old By Illegal Immigrant, Maryland State Legislature Votes to Become a Sanctuary State

They have their agenda and they're not changing it for anything.

Maryland Democrats this week took a major step to becoming a "sanctuary state," drawing outrage from Republican Gov. Larry Hogan and concerns it would protect an 18-year-old illegal charged with raping a 14-year-old girl in a school bathroom last week.

The Democratically-controlled House of Delegates voted 83-55 to OK the Maryland Law Enforcement and Trust Act. Generally, it would bar state and local law enforcement from helping federal immigration officials seeking illegals, including requests to detain inmates for deportation.

Bre Payton at the Federalist has more.

More: From JJ's Morning Thread, Tucker Carlson intergoofs leftwing shill who compares ICE to Nazis, and also makes excuses for the rapist of a 14 year old girl.

Also from JJ: "Major media" (um, a term which is increasingly divorced from reality) completely censored the story.

An uninformed public is a propagandist's best ally.

Ready to get sold out, guys and girls?

Is the GOP This Stupid, Or Just Almost This Stupid?
—Ace

The Democrats are proposing a "deal" in the Gorsuch confirmation: For promising to not block his nomination, which they can't do anyway, they want Republicans to promise not to nuke the filibuster for any subsequent nomination -- you know, the one that's really important because it might just well tip the Court's balance for 20 or 30 years.

In short, the Democrats are offering to take a Big Something from the Republicans in exchange for Nothing.

Here's the thing: The Republicans actually want the Democrats to keep the filibuster, because they actually don't want a conservative court. Or to have the power to enact any of their legislative measures that they claim they want to enact, but in fact do not want to enact. They like pretending they want conservative reforms, while loving the fact that the Democrats can block those reforms.

Then they get to have their cake and eat it too -- they perpetually run on issues they don't want a resolution on, while being able to explain away their failure by saying "Because Democrats" or "Because Political Reality."

So some Republicans -- I'm thinking of Orin Hatch and John "Build the Dang Fence" McCain and Lindsey Graham and Susan Collins and maybe Mitch McConnell -- might just seize this non-deal "deal" as a political fig-leaf for getting what they wanted anyway (keeping the Court "balanced") while citing their eternal excuse of "The Democrats made us do it, don't you Hobbits understand that?"

Old Lurker

Besides, SBW, it is not just his adjectives and nouns, but the verbs and adverbs that make Cap'n such a wordsmith.

After investing gazillions of dollars in them and empowering them to know every tiny thing about each of us, name one major turning point foreseen by our CIA and its siblings in the last 50 years?

I think this is a great point. They can do nearly anything with the technology, things literally unimaginable even a decade or two ago, but they're so enamored by and reliant on, the tech that they've forgotten (or never had to learn) how to do without it, and they don't know how to judiciously use it or evaluate the results it produces.

We see the same thing in modern movies. CGI lets them show literally anything on screen, any superpower, any alien world, any era of the past, and make it look real. The problem is, the filmmakers rely on that so much that they forget how to actually tell stories, which was the original point.

The tool that should HELP them do their job (whether it's making films or defending the country via intelligence collection of adversaries) instead BECOMES the job, and everyone is the worse for it.

James D

Now without wanting to over-glorify the past or the people of the past, I seriously wonder if we could fill a room today with minds and hearts and character comparable to those that produced this country back in 1776-1789?

Absolutely we could. But it certainly wouldn't be filled by people currently in government.

The trouble with covert operations is not knowing how efficacious they are. The failures are obvious but if an embed is being successful you don't point that out. Obviously our Intel has had some worthless creeps (Wilson, Plame, Brennan...) but when you can't trust the people entrusted with oversight (and the number of people I believe were burned in the last eight years is huge) then you have a very large problem.

Captain Hate

henry

Rocco, this guy has been in the weeds for 2 years and is a questionable source going back 10 years. Nunes info relates to surveillance last year Nov to Jan this year. Obviously a different set of info. Montgomery is not Nunes source. He may be a deep state ploy to bury the real info Nunes has. We must be careful here, and only accept high grade sources.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Rocco,

I think there are multiple sources.

1. Montgomery
2. Admiral Rogers
3. Unknown people at lower levels in CIA and FBI.

Remember, those unmasked reports were passed around to several agencies. Could have been several people got this information and thought, "Holy cow! This isn't right!"

Montgomery left government employ in 2010 or so. He couldn't have had the information on the transition team surveillance, which happened in November, December, and January. That had to come from someone else.

Also, if these reports were scattered throughout various agencies, there is no doubt in my mind that Obama was reading them every day, so that he could figure out how to mess up President Trump's first days in office.

This is also why he is hiding out in Tahiti. By the way, where is Brennan. I know for sure that guy is guilty of a bunch of stuff.

clarice feldman

Montgomery is a scam artist. I doubt he was the source for Nunes.

Old Lurker

Cap'n if the Senate goes for that "deal" they should be fired at the first opportunity. Under that deal, the Dems will get their pick for the next couple of vacancies because they, unlike our side, will damn sure stick together. And by the next election our side will be so damn sick of GOPe begging for "just give us the xxx" that the chance of giving them 65 or so in the Senate (60 + the RINOs) is zilch.

narciso79

Exactly reliable human sources are the key, in aq there was one Moroccan fellow at the beginning then the Danish biker and the saudi asset Brennan burned.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clarice,

I agree.

I am not very confidant in Larry Klayman, either. He's like the proverbial stopped watch.

I have caught him in too much exaggeration and opportunism to have much confidence in him. (And this goes all the way back to Clinton impeachment days.)

Could be Montgomery has something, but if he does, it will be discounted in the press due to past behavior.

I prefer whoever Nunes got the info from. And I don't need to know who that was, as I would prefer that people feel safe coming forward.

sbw

Rep. Jackie Speier, a California Democrat , said Nunes apologized

Miss Marple the Deplorable

sbw,

Agree. I 100% approve of Nunes going out to say something to the press, then quickly Ryan and then to the President.

No democrats should have been told what he had, as they are complicit. Also, Schiff is totally untrustworthy.

I prefer to think he said "Sorry, not sorry. I will tell you when we have the information all locked down. "

Jack is Back!

I'm still hanging my hat on Admiral Rogers (an officer and a gentleman) may sound corny but it is institutionalized among those with honor and I consider him honorable. He looked a little bothered a the hearing sitting next to Comey.

Unless EO12333 was retroactive, if any of the Nunes motherlode includes November and December intercepts then that means its original Signal intelligence which leads naturally to NSA even in America since it was foreign sources being surveyed.

clarice feldman

I don't see how an executive order ccan override the rules of the FISA Ct under which the intercept was approved.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

Since Admiral Rogers went to see Trump without informing his superiors (Clapper and Obama) I am sticking with him as being a source.

There was a reason Clapper wanted him fired.

On another topic, Sean Spicer is really doing an excellent job as press secretary. Every time I watch him he gets better, adn today he really shut a couple of reporters down with their pathetic "process" questions.

The guys at Reddit want to send him a present!

Captain Hate

I think JiB is correct on Rogers.

Schiff needs to go after Colon Bowel's email server while he was SoS since he was so concerned about that a few months ago that even Chris Wallace told him to zip it. If he finds something on which to indict that pompous gasbag, let the cards fall where they may.

Old Lurker

I also don't see how EO122333 could retroactively permit that which previously was not legal?

In all my shoot em up books, the Presidential Finding permitting the proposed illegal activity has to be signed before the good guy takes his sniper rifle into the field.

So that must be right, right? How could all of my junk books be wrong about that?

Captain Hate

The ewok chronicles continue:

A New Low for the Partisan Fanatics at CNN

Many are dismissing Nunes' disclosures as being too vague, too filled with "may be's" and "could be's," too reliant on Nunes' subjective assessment that the intel reports seem make him "uncomfortable" and strike him as "inappropriate."

Fair enough.

But is that the standard the media uses in examining all such leaks?

No it is definitely not -- this tough standard of review goes out the window when the leaks being discussed are anti-Trump.

At Powerline, check out CNN's maybe-kinda-sorta "breaking news."

The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings, according to those U.S. officials. The information is raising the suspicions of FBI counterintelligence investigators that the coordination may have taken place, though officials cautioned that the information was not conclusive and that the investigation is ongoing.
Odd how CNN comes together as a single mind to declare Nunes' claims as "too speculative" and not sufficiently backed by evidence which is disclosed and open to examination, while at the same time they essentially make up reasons to re-re-report the same unevidenced "suspicions" their Obama loyalist sources feed to them.

And note that none of this is new at all -- this is the same bullshit they've been feeding us for months. CNN's goal here is not to break new news but to maintain political pressure by simply re-re-reporting that which has been reported to death. The Democrats have an agenda item -- they are campaigning for a special prosecutor or special investigative committee which will have free reign to go on a fishing expedition on Trump for four or eight years -- and CNN is an important political operative in agitating for that scheme.

Meanwhile, where is CNN on the question of whether Nunes' charges similarly require constant re-reportage and their own special prosecutor who can go on a fishing expedition against Obama loyalists for two or eight years?

Nah, no need for that -- there is insufficient evidence for that sort of thing.

But for Trump -- we need that, stat. Also based on no evidence.

But CNN thinks its Obama loyalist sources are super-swell guys and Big Patriots and you should too!

A Freeper says

that Pete Hoekstra said

on the Rush Limbaugh show

that the Trump surveillance transcripts went directly to the White House:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3537419/posts

Old Lurker

Hoekstra was speculating.

Jack is Back!

I too was scratching my head when Nunes briefed the House press first then went to the WH to brief Trump (who is still the subject of an FBI investigation, if you believe all the reports) and then another press briefing outside the WH. All this before informing his committee and/or the ranking member.

Then it dawned on me that what he saw was very credible, very disturbing and even if legal seemed to highly irregular. IOW's it was objective evidence of the Obama administration using FISA or the FBI or others in its corner and pay to surveil an incoming administration in order to set them up for a fall (the fake Russia collusion scenario including installing malware on servers in Trump Tower.

John LeCarré could not have written such a contrived plot line but Zippy and the Ferret could probably with a little help from his fiction writer and DNI liar.

Rememb

daddy

Way behind, but caught much of Mark Steyn who has been excellent today sitting in for Rush. In Hour 2 or 3 he had on Pete Hoekstra, Former Repub on the Congressional Intel Panel. Hoekstra says he has a guest OpEd coming out in the WSJ tomorrow explaining his views. He says that both Comey and Rogers had a Legal Duty to state loud and unambiguously to the Hearing folks the other day that they knew and have known about all this stuff for a long time and that in effect both broke the Law by not doing that in the hearings. Said it is equivalent to a Lawyer having a duty to the Court sort of thing.

Hoekstra says Nunes did correct to publicize this and tell the president once he learned about all this from the WhistleBlower, and Hoekstra also made the point that this in effect puts the lie to Comey saying he had briefed on some quarterly basis the Congress, since Nunes is the head of the House Intel Committee and did not hear squat about this stuff until yesterday.

That is what I recall from the Steyn chitchat which I could not rewind for verbatim points, so I look forward to the WSJ getting that ugly smear from Bret Stephens off their pages and replacing it with Hoekstra's opinions tomorrow.

He did not say he wanted John McCain's head on a spike, but if he had said that I would have been behind him 100%.

Jack is Back!

..Remember how Watergate took months and months before the hearings and then it needed Deep Throat to give up the President....

Steyn thought that Chelsea Clinton winning a LifeTime Achievement Award from Vanity Fair was the most over the top idiotic award since Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, but I think he thought Chelsea's award was even more over the top than Obama's.

I remain unconvinced on that score. How about you guys? Which is more preposterous, Obama's Nobel Peace Prize or Chelsea's LifeTime Achievement Award?
