The NYT only dons a trench coat to flash tourists in Times Square.

Is that the same hacker who claims the FBI offered him money for testimony that corroborated the narrative?

FBI Probe Into Clinton Emails Prompted Offer of Cash, Citizenship for Confession, Russian Hacker Claims

 narciso.

In that's a different one, that's the spam king, he is identified with the neva rivee, its really striking how much they can make of this gornisch

henry

cboldt, wasn't Guccifer2 the one offered money? (and suspected by the chans to be a DNC IT staffer). This guy has a different nom de hack in use, might be the Weev guy tied into Chernovich / Loomer via secret chats (that the chans exposed). That Weev guy is in Ukraine hiding out. Seems a very tight circle of conspirators behind all this.

cboldt

henry - yes, I agree, the anonymous hacker referred to in today's NYT article and my "hacker offered a bribe by the FBI" are two different people.

Further, I think Guccifer 2 is made up, not associated with any name. Guccifer is associated with Romanian "Marcel Lazar Lehel"

 narciso.

He may be part of the shaltar boltoi, 'Humpty Dumpty' hackers which operated a little like the janus syndicate, inside the fsb among other agencies. Still. Very near beer.

I was hoping the title was referring to that backstabbing pile of shit, Bob Corker.

Corker is up for re-election in 2018. I hope there is a primary candidate ready to go.

 narciso.

Is there any evidence the networks are more secure than last year, or the year before that, Shirley?

Captain Hate

A member of the Horde pointed out that leaks have gone down since Priebus was sent packing.

Also there was this:

I really do wonder what all of Our Betters, such as Jennifer Rubin who is now openly stating that she thinks the 25th Amendment should be used, think will happen should they succeed in deposing Trump somehow.

Because it really does seem as if they think that they can do that and then everything will just go right back to normal and I don't think that will happen at all.

Trump won 61% of the vote in Tennessee; Corker is even dumber than I thought.

When 6 sailors were slain by a Kuwaiti lad 2 years ago, corker rode a squirrel.

All the tell tale signs clearly do not confirm any Russian intrusion. But crowdstrikes billion dollar capitalization was at stake.

Ace - "The media are not historians nor political scientists. They are literally, and I say this with all intended denigration of myself, merely fucking people who write sentences, and, increasingly, who don't even write sentences -- they just talk words on the Television.

How on earth did people whose skill-set used to consist chiefly of shorthand notation and fucking typing elevate themselves into "experts" on politics, history, economics, and foreign policy?"

Trump can't get his nominees out the Senate, but Corker thinks he's supposed to run the USA by himself. IMO, Sen Corker and many other politicians should turn themselves in to the DOJ for taking money and not doing their job. I'm pretty sure that is still against the law.

IMO, one American is currently doing his job in Washington, D.C. That American is Donald Trump. May God bless and Protect him and his family.

Sundance points out that The Big Ugly is coming, where people like Flake and Corker are going to be forced into a corner.

He also points out that the economic stuff Trump wants done are not ideas thought up by Bannon or Miller or anyone else; they are issues he has talked about for years, which he believes in and are deeply personal.

Good article!

henry

Kristol stupidly thinks whatever totalitarian government he replaces Trump with would have a use for him beyond licking dog poop off the carpeting. What a loser.

I said to our intern yesterday: Journalists are nobody special. They are only as good as what they write, today.

I told him that my goal as a journalist is to be able to look back on what I did yesterday and feel proud about what I had written.

cboldt

I'm fairly sure that the folks at CNN, NYT, and WaPo are proud of their work too. I'd wager that liberals and progressives in general have a surplus of pride.

Miss Marple,

That Sundance article is great! I'm looking forward to the President's next rally in Arizona, and wish I could be there. I hope that they take sufficient precautions. The enemy will be out in force.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I have faith in the security people around President Trump, Barbara. They aren't going to let Antifa get anywhere near him.

I really recommend that Conservative Treehouse site. Some of the comments are a little effusive, but Sundance's articles are often very well researched with good analysis.

Plus it has a positive tone, which is not something to be ignored these days.

I also recommend following @ThomasWictor, @_0Hour1_, @Degradelai, and @drawandstrike on Twitter. They do Twitter threads and good analysis.

I have pretty much dropped going to most of the conservative and news sites due to NeverTrump and leftists infesting them.

Beasts of England

A few random items:

- I wasn't around during the Plame days and know of cboltd through the sidebar links here, and perhaps at Talk Left (?) during the Travon Martin trial. Anyhoo, it's enjoyable to read his comments here, re: current affairs!

- A few JOMer comments were cobbled together and referenced in a fine column by Harry Stein.

- Other than receiving a credible death threat a few hours ago from the very jealous boyfriend of a, um, certain girl, I'm doing just fine and dandy. Heavily armed, but fine. :)

Looks like the few people I did read at NR are now writing for American Greatness:https://amgreatness.com/2017/08/14/anti-trump-bourbons-learning-forgetting-nothing-time-2020/

Clarice Feldman

Seems that the few writers I enjoyed at NF are writing for American Greatness. Here's VDH:https://amgreatness.com/2017/08/14/anti-trump-bourbons-learning-forgetting-nothing-time-2020/

Porchlight

Be careful out there, Beasts.

Is there a link to said JOMer's husband's article yet? Apologies if I missed it.

DrJ

Clarice,

These days NRO is unreadable. VDH, Cooke (usually) and Nordlinger (when he stays to music) are about the only exceptions for me. Here's a quote from the latter:

Pianists aren’t ranked like tennis players, but if they were, Yefim Bronfman would be right up there. He is a Russian-born pianist, long a U.S. citizen. (He celebrated his citizenship at the Russian Tea Room next to Carnegie Hall. Hosting the party was Isaac Stern, the legendary violinist.) Bronfman’s personal No. 1 is Emil Gilels, the Russian pianist who lived from 1916 to 1985.

I like Gilels too. A lot.

 narciso.

Yikes beasts,

So American industrial competitiveness and infrastructure is fine is it. How far up their (reacted) are these ceos

cboldt

IIRC, I did comment at Jeralynn's Talk Left during parts of the Trayvon Martin trial. Haven;t been there since. I spent considerable energy at Volokh, mostly on NSA stuff, before it merged with WaPo. Sparred slightly at Balkan; told the dunderheads at EmptyWheel that "torture" was a losing argument, use "inhuman treatment" instead, and come and go at FreeRepublic depending on mood, workload, and issues.

Very much a righty by my own account. Others may differ on issue-by-issue basis.

Anyway, thanks Beasts for the more than kind compliment.

Porchlight

American Greatness is terrific. Source of "The Flight 93 Election" that was so influential last year. Some of the Claremont folks are doing excellent work there as well.

cboldt

Oh, and stay away from windows, get a dog, and sleep lightly as long as that credible threat is hanging.

Oh they are snapdragon nuts, jeralyn had a brief but of sanity and returned to the crazeh

Clarice Feldman

*NR*, not NF

By the way, where is Bill Clinton's disavowal of the racist segregationist J. William Fulbright, for whom he clerked? I see that the Fulbright-Clinton Public Policy Fellowship is going strong.

Where is Algore's renunciation of his segregationist dad?

 narciso.

Fulbright went on to flack for the uae where they didn't ban slavery till the 40s I think, that tidbit camevfrom Steven Emerson, 30 some years ago.

Clarice,

Thank you for the article by Victor Davis Hanson. I love his organized mind, his historical approach and his clear,strong writing style.

American Greatness is going on my "must read" list.

In the Harry Stein article mentioned above is a link to the story of a Confederate soldier, Richard Kirkland. He was named "The Angel Of Maryes Heights" for providing care to gravely wounded Union soldiers at the risk of his own life.

Whoever 'he' was for 'they' were, the story bears repeating especially now.

Captain..are there any investigations by media into the $$ and collusion of these fraudster politicians selling hate, anarchy to save their gravy trains sponsored agendas?
They've sold out the citizens of USA to the global cabal...And they got pawned by their object of envy? Trump !!'
If Trump isn't "unmasking" his enemies , we should--efficiently and by law.

I'm ready for the throatslashing, glenda. Those duplicitous lazy idiots think that if they just get rid of Trump, we'll fall in line behind them. They really must be terminally dumb. 2018 will be taking the Eric Cantor Experience on a national tour.

I am always happy to talk up Jeralyn Merritt and Marcy Wheeler.

E Volokh too, but that should be obvious.

Barbara

Those duplicitous lazy idiots think that if they just get rid of Trump, we'll fall in line behind them.

Captain,

I don't know what will happen if they succeed, but whatever it is will be unending and horrific.

The people who elected and support this President (and the numbers are growing) will not go quietly as they did in the case of Nixon. The attempt to impeach Bill Clinton was a failure, not because he wasn't a lying SOB, but because the American people do not approve of what is essentially a political assassination.

They tried it with President Reagan, twice, and failed. They tried it with GWB, and he served up Scooter Libby instead. How Barach Obama escaped impeachment could fill volumes. But if they try to impeach this President because of the flimsy reasons put forward by the Republicans, the Democrats, the compromised media and the Deep State (redundant, I know), they are going to have a fight on their hands.

Barbara

I should have said, the attempt to convict Bill Clinton. He actually was impeached.

Captain Hate

Barbara, you didn't mention it because the MFM pretends it never happened. But it's the IMPEACHED Slick, an otherwise undistinguished rapist, coward, traitor and son of a whore who lowered the character of the office and never received 50% of the popular vote.

On that note, Nytol.

Goodnight Capn. Bill the Rapist Clinton is the bench mark of what MARXIST/LIBTARD ALYNSKI acolytes try to PIN on REPUBLICANS. GOPe aka candy assed wimps, wear their clean TOGA'S and find common ground and brotherhood with a MAN, like CLINTON, who shot his PRESI-DEW onto a 23 year old INTERNS DRESS, in the Oval office. He lied before a Grand Jury, and his disGUSting sordid rapacious past is EPIC, if only looked at even casually. Pedo Island has Billy the Rapist on it's VIP GUEST LIST. The MFM........CRICKETS.
This HISTORY of the MFM and the likes of C FUCK TODD, et al, should have taught us, and made it VERY VERY CLEAR, who this MFM is.
They are NOT merely BIASED, they are CORRUPT, DISHONEST, cradle to microphone/camera, LIBERALS and MARXISTS. It's been OBVIOUS for YEARS. Dan Rather? Georgie SnuffaluffaGUS, and every other GOOFY ASSED LIBTARD CLOWN.
BLITZ WOLFER?? Wtf????? Andrea Mitchell???
And those are the SUPPOSED main stream "URINALISTS".
It's comical. Trump fights back. Therein lies the difference.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Great point at PJM;

Western civilization ended slavery. You can still buy people in the Sudan and areas of ISIS controlled Middle East. Want to buy a 10 year old girl or boy, go to Haiti. In ALL cases, slaves are sold by Muslims or Blacks to other Muslims or Blacks. Christians are not involved in the slave trade unless they are the slaves. This is the sad reality of the world today. Yet activists are focused on things that happened 150 years ago rather than on things that are happening right now. Why? Because these activists are cowards. They know going to Africa or the Middle East to work against slavery is a death sentence.

GUS

Ignatz, surely Stalin didn't use SLAVE LABOR???
The bought and paid for FAKE....Antifa....is not SERIOUS. BLACK LIVES MATTER is not SERIOUS.
The failure to recognize that, is similar to voting DEMOCRAT, because you believe DEMOCRATS care about "the little guy".
How many "little guys" does Planned Death Hut exterminate and the "part out" each year???

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Another view on McMaster from the credible Michael Anton, not some anonymous source.

GUS

Ig, Paul Mirengoff's problem, is that he is honest and has a conscience.
It's very difficult to give ANY OBAMA hire, ANY BENEFIT of the DOUBT.
Here is my reasoning. Even an apolitical appointee, must have the ability to critically judge those he chooses to associate with.
How smart can someone be, who willingly see's Obama's 8 years and his earlier history and track record, and yet still TRUST him??
Judging someone's character, requires the SOMEONE to HAVE CHARACTER. Obama does not. Obama has been DISHONEST all the days of his life. I recognize that. Who wouldn't??
Not a rhetorical question at all.

Kevlar Kid

Using the term "character" and the name Obama in the same paragraph is utter nonsense.

I pray that you are well and on the mend.

It's not difficult at all. Difficult implies that there is a possibility of eventually giving them the benefit of the doubt. But there's no reason to even consider it, ever.
