Back To The DNC Hack

Which one? There's like a dozen everytime I turn on CNN or MSNBC.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ever-original, Hillary's people are debuting a hat:

"We're still here" sounds like a line from a horror movie.

Buford Gooch

MM, it's way more likely that they finally took some polls and didn't refuse to admit that the results were correct.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Well, Hillary is promoting a new platform for the people who didn't vote for Trump. You are asked to register.

I assume this is going to be the on line version of MSNBC or something. What they want is to trap their people in the echo chamber.

That's what the hat is about.

I am not impressed.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Porch's pal Mark Regnerus out with a new book explaining why hos [the internet seems somewhat divided on the proper plural form of ho] a plenty means guys don't get married.
The PJM author [a chick] and many bitter men in the comments think it's matriarchal marriage laws and all the devious women who proved unworthy of the noble dudes in comments.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ignatz,

It's very sad that people think this way, but it's a result of media pushing against marriage for a very long time.

Melania should wear these next.

many bitter men

It is amazing the bile that comes out when Helen Smith (a/k/a Mrs. Instapundit) posts anything. She always supports men.

Rocco

I think I've mentioned that my son wrestled a blind kid in HS. The only rule change was that he had to maintain contact and every time that contact was broken, the ref blew the whistle and started them over. After it was over, my son said he almost let the kid win.

TM, a lot depends on the bandwidth available at each end. At work, I have fiber bundles to allow many simultaneous downloads of program fixes to our customers, Our cloud service is on an external server. We transfer massive updates back and forth. The internal lan is the slow part. I doubt the DNC is set up that way, but without details, it is all bs anyway. Occam's Razor always favors internal penetration. That should be assumed without hard proof of other.

Porchlight

Damn, I've been out of pocket and just saw cboldt's post on the earlier thread. RIP, Walter Becker. Really sad news.

jimmyk

why hos [the internet seems somewhat divided on the proper plural form of ho] a plenty means guys don't get married.

Seems to me the direction of causality could be reversed: Men don't get married as much, so there's more need for alternatives. (Demand vs Supply)

As to why men don't get married as much (which of course implies that women don't get married as much), I would attribute to women's increased earning power, making traditional marriage less of an economic necessity.

Janet the expert 🚬

"Make America Sick Again"

"Resist"

"A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages, PaPa John's"

"We're still here"

Porchlight

jimmyk, don't discount the softening of social mores. Unwed motherhood is now "okay" and we mustn't judge. That has had a huge effect.

Yet unwed motherhood is still the shortest route to poverty for women and children, no matter how much women's earning power has increased.

Dan Quayle was right.

The other reason is that sex is more available outside marriage than it was 50 years ago. No incentive for men, either.

Helicopters have been flying over all day doing water drops and checking for hot spots. There was a huge wall of dark grey smoke that moved from West to East as the fire jumped the freeway again to burn back into the canyons. It's dissipated now.

A tropical storm - Lydia, I think - has moved in and is now dropping a light rain in our area. There was even hail in the Santa Clarita Valley earlier today. Very weird with the temperatures in the high 90's.

The fire is about 15 percent contained, and as anyone knows who's experienced a fire in Southern California, it ain't over 'til it's over. There's a lot of work yet to do. People are being allowed back into their homes in some areas, so that's a good sign.

I hope McCarthy never writes a defense of me.
"Yeah, my pal is a gutless, spineless worm without principle who did what he was told and knew was a lie but, hey, it wasn't his lie."

He not only didn't effectively defend the musteline Comey, he actually made him look worse by pretending going along with corruption is not profoundly corrupt itself and on top of that McCarthy discredited himself with such an asinine perspective.
He just can't let go of his pals and embrace their utter venality.
Earth to Andrew; they're bums. Lying, crooked bums, regardless of whether they know the DOJ secret handshake.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

LOL! Best laugh I've had all weekend.
Hillary Clinton voters are the media.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ignatz,

Stuff like McCarthy wrote is why a lot of people like me start listening to conspiracy theories.

When you think that the DOJ is some sort of secret society with a club handshake, what else are we to believe?

Except he lulled this carp before against Gonzales, with Fitzgerald against comey and quattrine, he doesn't need prompting.

David, Internet Deplorable

Remember, that wonderful person Andy McCarthy assured us all the Fitz was a straight shooter who, "cross my heart and hope to die," would never, ever, pursue a political witch hunt against Republicans. Really, he was not and never had been a dishonest political hack who, from day one, was planning to go after any Republican he could find.

Every since McCarthy's defense of Fitzgerald in the Scooter Libby prosecution, I have never listened to a thing he said.

David

Clarice Feldman

Iggy, you made me look up musteline. I certainly share your view.

Clarice Feldman

I am particularly bitter about his long running defense of Fitzgerald. I had a friend who sat thru the entire Blind Sheikh trial and warned me about the tactics of the SDNY guys and there were plenty of signs early on it was a wtich hunt but people who respected McCarthy held back based on their high regard for him and acceptance of his judgment.

Iggy

weasel like ... lol. had to look it up.

When did the FBI open the investigation or matter or review ... whatever they were calling it?

Trump ending DACA with a six month window places it right in time for the mid-term primaries.

This forces the GOP to either side with Trump or the Democrats while trying to beat upstart, Trump supporting candidates.

"With its cornerstone gone, the Russian collusion story collapsed. For form’s sake Special Prosecutor Mueller will fan the embers for the next few months, perhaps uncovering a technical violation or two of this or that inconsequential law, perhaps releasing some sort of face saving report, but even the most rabid anti-Trumpers appear to recognize that the Russian hack dog won’t hunt." ...
"When California Senator Diane Feinstein says conciliatory things about Trump, infuriating her base, you know things have changed." ...
"When the major mainstream media outlets in unison condemn Antifa’s violent tactics, you know things have changed." ...
"Trump’s supporters can’t believe their man’s primary motivation is acquiring power. Trump’s enemies, other than Senator Feinstein, can’t believe how good he is at it. Neither side will recognize the real danger until it’s too late."

The decision not to indict Hillary Clinton was not made by then-FBI Director Comey. It was made by President Obama and his Justice Department – Comey’s superiors. If you want to say Comey went along for the ride rather than bucking the tide (as he concedes doing when Lynch directed him to call the Clinton probe a “matter,” not an “investigation”), that’s fair.

Thank goodness it's fair to think that---I wouldn't want to go out too far on a limb here.

So if I understand the Andy McCarthy column, James Comey is an automaton following the direction of the President if the President's name is Obama, but if the President's name is Trump Comey is instantly not an automaton but is completely capable of independent thought and action and started taking secret notes the instant the President named Trump said "hello," because saying "hello" might be criminal but ordering the exoneration of Hillary wasn't. OK. Got it. I also want to know if the President was the guy who told Comey he would be "nauseous" if he didn't give Hillary a pass or if Comey came up with that "nauseous" feeling all by himself. You never know abut the automatons.

And finally, if it's fair to ask, which Comey is the Comey with all that personal and professional integrity that Andy and all the legal talking heads have all that respect for?---The Obama Comey or the Trump Comey? Or both? It's fair to ask that, right Andy? Personally I hope McCarthy is on the NRO cruise this very instant and being keelhauled by Jane and Caro.

Time to rip off Boy George and Culture Club:

From Narciso's 09:25 on Dem Rep Carson, Awan Imran's alledged Video games buddy:

Carson also criticized The Daily Caller, a conservative media outlet that reported on Awan. He said The Daily Caller is pushing a false narrative.

"The Daily Caller is not a reputable entity," Carson said. "I think that they've proven themselves to be very bigoted, Islamophobic and anti-black.

Wish the reporter had asked Carson which video games he and Imran played together. I bet if Carson was a Republican the reporter would have demanded that info.

I think they call that the Chewbacca defense.

And also, what with Debbie Wasserman Schultz being Jewish, wouldn't the Daily Caller have to be Anti-Semitic as well as Islamophobic and anti-black?

I remember reading some years back about a cyber break-in.
The FBI had noticed an attack, of which the target was oblivious. IIRC the attacker was China. The intended target was a big US firm. However, the actual target was the company's law firm (!) because they were much easier to penetrate. And, as mentioned, the law firm was SO un-techy that they didn't even know they had been compromised.

The fascinating point to the story is that after the FBI got them clean and back up and running the law firm chose NOT to disclose what had happened to their client. It would have poisoned the business relationship or something! So the big firm went ahead doing business in China, knowing nothing.

This resonates with the DNC/Wikileaks story. After the FBI inexplicably chose NOT to examine the server, after the in-house investigation, after so much time has passed ... one thing is clear. Just as in the law firm cyber break in, there is a set of major players who are determined that the facts of the case will NOT see the light of day. Despite what most citizens would regard as simple fairness, ethical due diligence and the public good.

And they changed the origin story, for American assasin no longer its panam 103, its some kind of beach attack like we've seen in Tunisia OT Thailand.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Good morning!

jimnorcal,

The author of your piece recognizes Trump's talent, but misunderstands his motive. Anyone who saw him interacting with the kids in Houston would understand his motive. I think for some people it's impossible to imagine that he's simply a nice guy who wants things fixed for his kids and grandkids, and he knows he's the only one who can do it.

daddy. Kudos on your Comey dissertation, and bonus points for Boy George!
North Korea in the news again as I got up.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Tony Schaefer was on Fox and brought up what I have suspected, that Iran is in cahoots with North Korea. He brought up the large amount of cash and the rapid progress the Norks seem to have suddenly made.

I got to thinking all the way back to the late 70's, when the odious Jimmy Carter, who is still not dead, stabbed the Shah in the back and started us down the road of Islamic terrorism.

So Carter is the first part of this. Then Bill Clinton and Madeline Albright, giving nuclear stuff to the Norks and missile technology to the Chinese.

And then finally, Obama, who ignored the Norks and gave all that money to Iran.

A tragedy in 3 acts, all perpetrated by democrats whose foreign policy was one of propping up dictators, undermining national security, and getting as much loot as possible. As far as I am concerned all 3 should be in prison.

Jim,

When I read about Awan and his secret E-Mail account still open at Rep Carson's Congressional Office, it makes me think the smartest place for hackers to hack directly into is Congress---they seem even stupider than the Lawyers in the Law Firm you mention.

From The Daily Caller last week:

A spokeswoman for Carson, Jessica Gail, did not express concern or surprise when contacted by TheDCNF about Awan’s still-active email address Monday morning. Bennett said Tuesday morning Gail had not even informed him of the details.

Bennett, who is Carson’s deputy chief of staff, told TheDCNF he has no control over the 123 address. “However this happened, it was not with my consent or control,” he said in an email. “For the record, I do not, nor have I ever, had control of the 123@mail.house.gov email account or any other account connected with Imran Awan or his family.”

Apparently nobody in Congress knows about cyber-security and nobody in Congress cares about cyber-security. Femall.

Miss Marple the Deplorable | September 04, 2017 at 06:04 AM

I agree with you on Pres Trump's motives.
Also that guy bought The Nation theory of "insider leak" not "hack". As TM demonstrates in his post that's debatable! For me, the interesting part is that the article argues Trump is gradually clobbering Deep State. The Russia conspiracy, prominent Dem leaders, even the enemedia are starting to crack. (In his opinion).

Some truth there, but I'll feel better when/if the RINO wing of the UniParty shows signs of collapse.

The NeverTrumpers are less acute. They are pretty much astroturf. A few loud leaders, no popular base. Once the MSM no longer needs quotes to gin up fake outrage the NTers will fade quickly to oblivion.

Yet unwed motherhood is still the shortest route to poverty for women and children, no matter how much women's earning power has increased.

And unwed mothers require government programs to replace all the things fathers would provide; just as those in poverty require government programs to make ends meet.

EVERY progressive position and policy is explicitly designed to destroy traditional family and social structures, thus requiring government to step in and do for people what they could previously do for themselves. EVERY ONE.
