James D.

From a WS article about how Bernoe's wife bankrupted the college she ran (and profited handsomely in the process):

But here in Burlington, “People are doing everything they can to protect Bernie,” one former professor told me. Even those who recognize Jane Sanders’s wrongdoing—trustees who witnessed weak leadership and faculty members she fired—remain wary of Brady Toensing, the lawyer and Vermont Republican party vice chairman who alerted the state’s U.S. attorney in early 2016 to the possible bank fraud underlying Sanders’s deal.

So people who lost their jobs because of the venality and greed of Vernoe and his wife will still defend them.

Eff them all. Maybe we really do need a hot civil war and open bloodshed in the streets. Because there's no way to reach compromise with people like this.

James D.

Thinking further about the debacle in the Senate, I have to ask:

Would this country be a better place if, on 9/11, all the firemen and police and janitors and restaurant workers and office temps and other "ordinary" people who died in the WTC had lived, and every single person who worked on Capitol HIll had died in their place?

It's a no-brainer to me.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

James D.,

I still say we should just let each state put citizens' names in a hat and draw 2 for Senate.

I can name at least 50 people I know personally who would do a better job.

Hi cboldt! You're in the Sebago Lake area,correct? Any thoughts about Collins?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

George Neumayer is right up there with Spengler and Wretchard as a consistent must read.

A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump.

When I joined the AF I'm doubtful I could even have gotten in with that history and I know I could not have received a TS clearance with it.
How then did Brennan shortly thereafter?

cboldt

Tumultuous wave! From the southern end of Biggest Sebago lake, where the waves are high and the tourists are higher.

Umm, no printable thoughts on Collins. I would support her trading places with LePage though.

I've been following along on JOM since, oh, about the time of the best election ever, and I remember all of them, back to Ford. Memory, second thing to go, I forget what the first is.

Enjoyed Marple's post. A new British spy name there, not Steele. I half expect Wilson and Plame to show up any day now.

Ignatz,

When I married my first husband who was in Air Force Security Service (linguist) they had to see every campus organization I belonged to before they would ok my marriage, plus they went and interviewed my parents and grandparents. True story, although this was 1967 and before the SJW's infiltrated the government.

cboldt,

Nothing would surprise me on this.

Isn't it interesting how conspiracies seem suddenly to be reasonable theories?

The statement "Homeland Security Secretary canoodling w/terror-linked jihad inciter @CAIR leader Hassan Shibly" is a quote from Pamela Geller.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Except it wasn't Kelly canoodling; it was some underling who is head of the CRCL in DHS.
There shouldn't be a CRCL in DHS or IMO even a DHS, and CAIR should be labeled a terrorist supporting org, but Geller was still inaccurate and the fact she cut off the bottom of the letter where it would not have had Kelly's signature doesn't help her credibility.

henry

The WSJ editorial staff is having a #NeverTrump meltdown this morning. Even cheering on the "mug Russia" sanctions for constraining Trump. Last gasp coup is at full swing today.

henry

Muh.... auto spell is part of the coup

cboldt

Worrisome letter can be seen at Trump’s DHS thanks Hamas ..., Pam Geller website (popup rich place), and is referred to in Secretary of Homeland Security Thanks CAIR at Clarion Project.

cboldt

Maybe I should get rid of muh coup-coup clock.

Don't forget, we are now dealing with Congress's Russia sanctions, which the press has been able to turn into Trump sanctions because he didn't veto them.

Ah hannigan, he was fired a week after the times piece right before the inaugural, and was nit replaced for six weeks.

Head of the CRCL? That's like the pointy end of a cantaloupe or something.

henry,

I'm convinced that the problem with auto spell is that the components installed on most androids were created by individuals for whom idiomatic, American English is either unknown or a subsidiary language. The "thought patterns" are quite different, and the droid seems resistant to be schooled. In contrast, my cell android is much better.

exdemocrat

some thoughts re the Awan matter (sic):

1. how on earth did an IT tech charged with bank loan fraud secure legal representation by a Washington power lawyer intimately connected with the Clinton's??

2. who arranged that representation? and why?

3. why did the FBI accept being denied direct access to the DNC servers etc?

4. when Comey was asked whether he knew why the DNC denied access to the FBI, he said "not for sure," rather than "no."
what did he think was the reason?
5. what reason would justify giving access to a private company - no matter how "highly respected" (per Comey), rather than the nation's premier law enforcement agency?
6. and again, why was the FBI ok with that?

7. and who at the DNC - specifically - negotiated this arrangement with the FBI?

8. what was that person (or persons) acting obo the DNC so keen to ensure the FBI did not find?

9. did Crowdstrike physically collect the server(s) to perform its analysis? If so, has a chain of custody been established? if not, why did the FBI not confirm one, as is routine?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

DHS letter an obvious forgery.
Nobody can possibly really be named Veronica Venture outside a comic book, can they? :)

10. if Neumayr's characterization of Brennan is on point (and i believe it is), who was Hillary's adversary before Trump - and how did she dispose of him?

11. How might a CIA chief determined to ingratiate himself with Hillary have assisted in that disposal?

DrJ,

You're right. I've left auto spell on when I use the Kindle because in most cases it will think ahead and save me keystrokes. Even so, when I use that feature, I have to remember to tap on the suggested word or auto spell may change it for me.

It's a balance of convenience and frustration. When the frustration exceeds the convenience, then I'll switch the little monster off.😊

exdemocrat - I read that the FBI had "used" crowd strike, too, which let them buy the assurances about the DNC computer problem(s). I don't know if that is accurate or not, but it makes sense. A commenter noted that the FBI were not the experts we expect them to be. then there is this:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado, April 17 (2012) (Reuters) - Vowing to step up his battle against attacks on U.S. computer networks, the FBI's former top cybersecurity official, Shawn Henry, said on Wednesday he is taking a top job with CrowdStrike, a new firm founded by two former executives with security software maker McAfee.

Henry, who retired from the FBI last month, said he looked forward to continuing his fight against cyber attacks from outside government, where such work often ran into bureacratic, jurisdictional and legal constaints.

"I have always said the private sector needs to be a bigger part of the solution, and with CrowdStrike I'll have more flexibility and opportunity to make a difference from this side
of the fence," Henry wrote in a blog on the company's website.
......
Henry, who spent 24 years at the FBI, served as executive assistant director of the FBI's Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch since September 2010. Before that, he was the
assistant director in charge of the FBI's Washington field office.

"Flexibility" is the power word!

cboldt

No no no, not diff-E-Q. Make them integrate!

Clarice Feldman

I think that. like Sessions, Ashcroft was hornswoggled by the DOJ lawyers who hated Cheney and infected with scrupulosity--the notion that keeping their reputations for probity spotless rather than taking on the tough work of defending the nation's interests no matter how much mud was slung at them.

exdemocrat

Frau - what else would he say when interested in marketing his new position.

In his testimony, Comey agreed that the FBI's normal and preferred practice is to do the forensic work itself, with direct access, as this provides 'the best evidence.' In his testimony, he made it clear that they accepted the crowdstrike solution as a compromise.

why?

DrJ

Make them integrate!

:)

How about contour integration? These can be useful for inverting Laplace transforms.

exdemocrat

Clarice - surely Corn’s conclusion - that “the Trump campaign was—or wanted to be—in cahoots with a foreign adversary [by receive information from Putin] to win the White House.”- is actually self-refuting, no?

after all, in what universe would the actions alleged (even if they occurred) possibly amount to a crime (let alone a “high crime”)?

Further, how would such action (again, assuming they occurred) possibly amount to grounds for impeachable since they (allegedly) occurred prior to DT holding the office he now holds?

'Liberals knowing so much (and with such certainty) that is wrong.'

It makes one wonder, when Woodward was leaked that the cia supported the maronites as well as sadat and king Hussein whose interest did that serve, this was back inn the 70s.

Um, isn't that what they do at Diversity Training?

I say make them explain standard deviation, correlation coefficients, and regression analysis on a bell curve.

Clarice Feldman

Yes, exdem. And as I've argues before, who would the broke Russians have preferred in the WH they guy who wanted to strengthen our military and increase energy production or Hillary who would have surely continued Obama's feckless defense and energy policies?

Frau  Fidibus

I dunno, exdemocrat. Perhaps Queasy Comey was encouraged [matter not investigation style] to let Crowdstrike--working for the DNC--render the evaluation. IIRC it ended up as the DNC didn't want the examination and the FBI didn't ask for one. With super dooper, best ever ex-FBI cyber chief vouching for DWS's security [hahahahahaha!], it was less work for the Feds and better for the Dems whose crooked eyes were focused on the glass ceiling.

cboldt

And skew them with kurtosis ... as long as it's all random it works as good as ridicule.

exdemocrat,

My best recollection is that it occurred after Wikileaks released a large volume of Podesta emails in the fall of 2016. The DNC then claimed that their computers had been hacked. The information in those emails released just before the election were scurrilous enough to get DWS and Donna Brazile fired.

After she lost the election, Hillary grabbed on to that meme as a way of explaining how her anticipated landslide turned into an embarrassing loss. When or whether these events caused the FBI to investigate the claim, I can't say for certain.
