Saw a tweet this morning with a vid of Lindsey Graham connecting the dots (almost) on the dossier, the FISA, and it being very bad if this is the "new normal" so a SC is needed to look into FBI/DOJ malfeasance. I guess he saw new evidence from the OIG.

Texas Liberty Gal,

Thank you so much for your kind words at the end of the previous thread.

I am up earlier than I think everyone except anonamom and Gentlejim, but unlike them, I have no work demanding my time, so it is something I can do here to feel productive.

I do wonder why Twitter was very odd this morning. I have never had it freeze on me like that. Maybe just a glitch in their servers, but it did raise my suspicions a little.

Captain Hate

The Washington establishment and specifically The Resistance will only exert themselves on behalf of the protestors if a credit for a transition to a calmer, free-er, more market-oriented, less militaristic Iranian government can go to Obama/Clinton rather than Trump.

Sounds like the Farsi Ferret has been throwing back Curb Dive quantities of libations.

In the past in Iran, when there are protests the government simply closes off the protest areas to the rest of the public. Sometimes 2 blocks becomes 4 blocks and so on.

The purpose is to make sure most people can't see them.

Old Lurker

.BACK!

And to peace and quiet.

Have you any idea what bedlam ensues when grandparents spend the holidays with their kids and a 3 year old and twin 1 year olds? It was wonderful of course but we did miss hosting our own traditional Christmas at our house. Oh well...natural course of things and all that.

I have lurked whenever I could find a quiet corner and have only three observations:

1. Glasater posted a wonderful picture of a guy in a red jacket sitting on a rock outcropping which would indeed be my avatar for Ledge Sitting if I ever saw one.

2. You guys were too tough on Ext for expressing caution about over interpreting what we know-know from what we think we know about various matters related to the coup. Personally I agree with everyone that we know what they were doing...but the bad guys have too many lawyers to just assume that some of them will not skate on the legal nuances on words like "Insurance" and "Andy's". Lucy's football comes to mind, and we at JOM have been known to assume good news about outcomes that never come to be.

3. RG laid out an extensive roadmap of what he and we all hope, hope, hope is going on behind the curtain to get the bad guys. Observation: I wonder why the focus lately is seemingly just on the DoJ and FBI and we do not hear much about the Clappers, Brennans, the use of the Brit's Intelligence guys wink, wink, the "17 Intel Agencies all agree...", and all those dudes in khaki pants in cubicles with earphones listening to anything they like.

Oh. And thanks for the Tax Law, Mayrose. :-)

This pleases me for a couple of reasons:

1. Investors are noticing that a lot of the entertainment sector is not drawing eyeballs. Virtue signaling to lefties isn't a money-maker.

2. When the companies' stocks are poorly performing, there is less money to fund these BS things like "The Handmaid's Tale". The need to make money is going to produce more mainstream productions.

I can only report what I know.
1. Sessions and Rosenstein were there in July. (This seems odd because DoD has jurisdiction)

2. Mattis was there a few days before Christmas.

3. Reports on some of the chan threads that small planes, some with escorts, were headed in that direction and transponders turned off when they got past Florida.

I had the misfortune of seeing #TheLastJedi with the kids yesterday. Sort of like SJW version of #StarWars with huge plot holes. Difficult to choose the worst bit, but casting Laura Dern as a 7 foot Marge Simpson / Hillary Clinton 'Resistance' leader hybrid was a standout 👇
======================================

Word is getting around. I expect attendance to plummet except for the hard core fans of the genre.

Tom Maguire

That Lindsey Graham thing is interesting, but...

From my viewing, I am worried that Graham is speaking very carefully with the hope that we will hear something he is not willing to say.

As to why he is not willing to say outright that the DoJ used the Steele dossier to get a warrant (FISA or otherwise), I don't know. Maybe because he hasn't quite seen that evidence, or maybe he has seen the evidence but his Senatorial oversight duties don't allow him to disclose that.

Troubling.

FWIW, Paul Mirengoff at Powerline notes the careful wording and is careful himself:

Graham didn’t say in so many words that the dossier was used to obtain a surveillance warrant. However, he said that when the Department of Justice presents a document to a court, it has a duty to the court to be “up and up” regarding “what the document is about, who paid for it, and what their motives might be.” Graham added that having looked at the history of the dossier and how it was used by the Department of Justice, he is “really very concerned.”

Putting two and two together, Graham is saying that the DOJ was not “up and up” about the dossier when it presented information contained therein to the FISA court. I don’t see how his statement to Kilmeade can mean anything else.

Well, I can see another interpretation - Graham *might* be offering a general exhortation for DoJ transparency with the courts and does not yet know for certain (one way or another) whether they were candid in seeking FISA warrants (if in fact they did).

IOW, Graham remains troubled because he can't get clarity from DoJ and is worried judges didn't either, not because he knows for a fact how they used the Steele dossier.

That said, I want to believe.

Extraneus

Miss Lindsay implies he knows what's in the FISA warrant application, and Sundance puts a good timeline together, no doubt.

What's the crime?

Davod

Maybe the DOJ/FBI has a tame judge n the FISA court. which maybe why one application was rejected but the second approved - different judges.

henry

Thanks for the 10:51 TM. Somebody is hiding something big.

Captain Hate

is there a greater aggregator of fake news than memorandum?

Drudge accepts that challenge.

Extraneus

Absolutely, Davod. Isn't the suspicion that the same judge who approved the warrant was the one to take Flynn's guilty plea and then recuse himself from the case? I don't think that's been backed up by evidence but I might have missed it. I do think we know the judge served on the FISA court in the timeframe of interest.

danoso

As mentioned before - it would be hard to believe this is the first and only time this rouge group presented less than credible evidence to the FISC, the purpose of which to reverse target their domestic political opponents.

Probably about 99.9% chance they have. And 100% chance Trump knows all the details.

Threadkiller

What's the crime?

I'm not sure, but I assume the people who won't answer the questions that Congress keeps asking them in hearings think that a crime exists.

At least their ass-covering word-soup non-answers ghost give that impression.

Threadkiller

No idea how that snuck into my comment.

Here's evidence that Contreras has served on the FISA court since May, 2016.

The Infamous Ignatz

1. The "Resistance" already makes common cause with our enemies so even if Trump didn’t exist they would not exert themselves at all for the Iranian people. This is especially true since their putative leader Barry, long ago chose sides and he chose the mullahs.

2. What possible good could that plague of Judases do if they did support the Iranian people? They would invariably pay them lip service then stab them in the back when they most needed support.
The only chance the Iranian people have is if the "Resistance" takes no interest in them whatsoever.

Jane

Trump has the power to publish a FISA warrant.

Jane

"Sometimes it's not the crime but the cover-up that gets them. Or so they say."

Maybe Trump doesn't want to expose the FISA warrant because it will bring down Mueller's investigation which is now concentrated on the dems.

Yeah right - Fat bloody Chance!

Point taken, but drudge does actually try for real news.

Brett Stephens, "conservative" moron:

Tax cuts. Deregulation. More for the military; less for the United Nations. The Islamic State crushed in its heartland. Assad hit with cruise missiles. Troops to Afghanistan. Arms for Ukraine. A tougher approach to North Korea. Jerusalem recognized as Israel’s capital. The Iran deal decertified. Title IX kangaroo courts on campus condemned. Yes to Keystone. No to Paris. Wall Street roaring and consumer confidence high.

And, of course, Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court. What, for a conservative, is there to dislike about this policy record as the Trump administration rounds out its first year in office?

That’s the question I keep hearing from old friends on the right who voted with misgiving for Donald Trump last year and now find reasons to like him. I admit it gives me pause. I agree with every one of the policy decisions mentioned above. But I still wish Hillary Clinton were president.

henry

Bret's opinions don't matter because he's a pussy. Stupid logic yields stupid nevertrump results.

The Infamous Ignatz

The problem the "we don't know if the dossier was used" argument has is a year and a half later there is still no evidence that there is anything else they could have used and we do seem to know for a fact the eff-ups who would have been the ones applying for a FISA warrant clung to that dossier as their Trump Rosetta stone.
The chance whatever they used was not knowingly false and misled the court is vanishingly small and since the dossier appears to be the only thing that could have backed up whatever they presented to the court it's getting pretty hard to consider any other possibilities.

Captain Hate

Lol @ Goldman Showers

Extraneus

Trump has the power to publish a FISA warrant.

That's the interesting thing, isn't it? He knows the details but hasn't let them out. All the stonewalling from DoJ and FBI could be handled in an instant, and anyone resisting could be fired for insubordination. Yet, we're still in the dark about the evidence that Trump and Sessions obviously have.

MM,

Nicolae Ceaușescu did exactly the same thing. He organized a giant rally--and the crowd overthrew him.

The armed forces joined in, and that turned the tables.

We stood in that square and listened to a gentleman who was 15 when it happened and was wounded along side his buddy who had his head blown off. About 1200 killed in the fish/barrel situation, but that was the end of it all.

I had our fave snapshot of the fearless leader and his evil wife mid-fall on my phone and never passed up an opportunity to show it to the locals we were traveling with. They were all happy to see it and remark that the evil wife got many more bullets than he did.

He should be worried about all those future taxpayers moving out of New York and being left with illegals on welfare. At some point the math doesn’t work.

One of the biggest world wide epidemics has been taken on by the Trump Admin from Day 1. Think Saudi Arabia. Think raids all over our country.

And its only gonna escalate. Let the guilty hang.

John McCain‏Verified account @SenJohnMcCain

For too long, the Iranian people have been oppressed by their government, which cares more about sowing instability abroad than its own citizens. The U.S. stands with the brave protesters who yearn for freedom, peace, and an end to corruption in Iran.

Oh my gosh! I am SO sorry! Hopefully we will get to the next page soon!

I am having weird stuff happen with the computer today. I think I will confine myself to commentary and do no copying and pasting for a while.

That was a big bite Miss M! ;)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

henry,

I absolutely have no idea how that happened, just like the double post this morning.

Maybe there is too much static electricity in the air do to the low temperatures. Yes, that sounds scientificy enough, I will go with that!

Brett Stephens, "conservative" moron:

...I agree with every one of the policy decisions mentioned above. But I still wish Hillary Clinton were president.

An insult to morons everywhere.

Why the lack of coverage of the Iranian protests by CNN and the networks?

My theory is that Obama sent word to avoid it, hoping that regime change will fail. Why?

I am convinced he and Hillary are afraid of what documents are in the Iranian government's hands, which would then fall into the hands of the pro-US factions in Iran.

I am serious. CNN has even offered the excuse that "Americans aren't interested in international news." I saw that by one of their reporters on Twitter.

I haven't forgotten how they sided with Iraq before the Gulf War. They are terrible people.

DebinGA

Speaking of miscreants' docs falling into the wrong hands, CTH links to a doozy today - a September 2016 BOzo National Security Division filing to the FISA court admitting they'd been covertly surveilling Americans (BOzo "enemies") since 2010 - without FISA sanction if I read it right, which is no sure thing.

Hey @CNN

Is there a white truck blocking your view of the #IranianProtests?

Janet 🚬

This is good - https://spectator.org/the-prince-and-the-community-organizer/

" For a self-described community organizer, full of the anti-colonial dreams of his father, Obama seems to enjoy inordinately rubbing shoulders with monarchs and princes. The BBC this week hailed his embarrassingly empty chat with Prince Harry as his first post-presidential interview (it was actually conducted last September but released only on Tuesday). The interview allowed two vapid liberals to wallow in their privilege while babbling about a world without privilege. Nothing phrases like “platforms of change” tumbled forth as they both longed for greater egalitarianism. The prince and the community organizer agreed that they are both “passionate” about helping paupers."...

William of Occam would argue it's because he prefers the mullahs to the people.

You are probably right, but I bet there is all sorts of interesting stuff in their archives.

Quite surreal chants in Bandar-Abbas, south Iran. "Reza Shah, may your soul rests in peace"... quite confusing, unprecedented pro-monarchy chants across Iran this evening:

(This is followed by a retweeted post in Farsi.)

In more important news, Larry Carlton is playing in Sun Valley next Sunday. Guess who is getting VIP tickets.

Damn lyle!

First I lust after the contents of your wine cellar, now your VIP tickets:)

Carlton has gravitated to the top of my list of favorite Jazz guitarists. Amazing touch/tone, a true master of his craft.

GUS

Lyle, where did BEASTS get Larry Carlton tickets??
He should take you as his guest.

The Infamous Ignatz

I still think Dinesh D'Souza was closest to what motivates Barry. Yeah he's a sanctimonious leftist but as his self indulgent even if not self written book makes clear he's got big time daddy issues. And who was daddy but an oppressed colonized African, ground down by that Churchill guy [explains the peculiar slap in the bust].
He's a knee jerk anti-colonialist to the point he will support any homegrown tyrant so long as he is hostile to the ultimate evil in the world; Western colonial powers, including the US.
Combine that with Shelby Steele's illuminating reflections on Barry's struggle with his detested cracker half and we have what CH always decries; a country that elected a mental case who used the presidency to try and work out his personal demons [unsuccessfully] for eight years.

Thomas Collins

Here's to the Trump and Netanyahu Administrations (and perhaps the Saudis, too) if they can pull off assisting in the toppling the mullah regime in Iran. Quite a bold move. Spontaneous protests? There may be an element of that, but this looks to be planned. Clearly whatever help the opposition is getting from outside needs to be kept under wraps.

Jack is Back!

Boy, am I enjoying my Apple TV 4K (HDR). By just keeping the basic Opitmum account in Southampton, I can get all the BPL, College and Pro games plus Netflix, news and other shows both there and here in Florida.

The threat to cable companies must be significant as people drop their large bundle accounts and install Apple TV, Roku and/or Fire.

Bret Stephens is all about the feelz, facts be damned.

That plus an inability to admit he was wrong.

Old Lurker

Jack, if we were to retain our big FIOS bundle in Potomac, then reduce Comcast on Nantucket (where we have Apple, Fire & Roku already) to just Internet and Basic cable, would we be good to go?

Buckeye

JiB

How much is the service in NY? Is it for both cable and Internet?

What kind of Internet service in Florida?

I am reevaluating my situation, would love to be able to tell Time Warner/Spectrum to get lost.

Iggy gets it 100% right.

I'm grinning ear to ear in anticipation, Buckeye and Gus. VIP tickets get a meet 'n greet. It will actually be the second I've met him. I met him a guitar shop in Reseda, CA in '78. Long story but it involved a mint '59 Les Paul two-piece flame top...

Right effing on, Ig, BTW.

Thanks MM, but I am wondering what the point is. Is someone afraid to arrest 100 people? I'm missing something.
