Snowing, headed into the deep freeze (wind chill warnings on top of double digit negative temps this weekend). I have beer and firewood. I emptied my fridge before spending Christmas in Jane's 80+ neighborhood. Probably ought to get some food at some point.

Definitely classified stuff on Abedin's email.

I think Abedin was what is known technically as a SPY.

And did she have a conection to those Awan brother? And where are they, anyway?

The Lord does look after this nation, that's for sure.

ChiTown alerted me to a Wicror thread. I am going to go find it.

About that Al Sura story1) no one else had it 2)
Its an Iraqi outfit that doesn't cover Jordanian affairs 3) the hashdmite said zayed are ostensibly on the same side against zur and the Kosan armada, I mean Qatar Iran and turkey.

Hmm. That didn't work. How about:

Yes Lovely Miss Marple. Fear is setting in.
It's fun to watch. I wouldn't waste my time reading the shyte, but the panic is obvious.

Yes abedin was part of a wider network that comprised Al massif and that other fellow I called the godfather of the salafi. The Closest parallel was to the ware network that recruited lager hiss.

Wictor claims most of Iran's bad ass rev guard and basin assholes received their allotments of virgins goats in Syria. Thus the mullahs can't crack down now. Makes you wonder.

JimNorCal

Startling. I tried posting that UN-Building meme ("Trump Library future home").

I added the text "copied from G A B dot A I" but without spaces.
It didn't post. I thought, "huh. did I forget to hit the 'post' button?"
so I posted again. Claimed to post but was lost in the void.
Posted it a third time but without the text. Came through OK.

So now I know not to use the magic phrases:
G A B dot A I, and
S h a r y l A t t k i s s o n
both of which are banned by TypePad.

Which is a shame.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

narciso,

Yes. I said on the other thread I posted that without checking. It startled me so much that I just copied it without thinking about it.

I wonder if what is really happening is that the brothers have taken troops somewhere.

This is better than bowl games for me. If Iran falls without a shot, like the Soviet Union, we will have a much better world.

Dave(MA), try posting a link from her website.
That is what failed me before and MissM hit it recently.

I'll try right now, too.

Dr Weevil

At this point, it looks like the over-and-under on how long the Iranian regime will last may be the end of the year. That would be bad news for any brutal regime any time of year, but very bad news for Iran right now. Sorry, I mean very bad news for the brutal Iranian regime right now, very good news for the Iranian people.

Posting the link to her website, or a link to one of the articles both failed for me.

"Reza Shah, Bless Your Soul" people chant in Qom! The bedrock of Shia clerics

https://dailycaller.com/2017/12/29/cnn-finally-solves-the-big-white-truck-mystery/

CNN on Friday finally “close[d] the loop” on its obsessive coverage of a white box truck that blocked the network’s view of President Trump golfing earlier this week.

A reporter for the network confirmed that the truck had license plates that showed it belongs to the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office.

Mike Magnoli, a reporter with CBS’s West Palm Beach affiliate, tracked down the truck. He reported that the vehicle belonged to the sheriff’s department but that it was not intended to block reporters’ views of Trump golfing at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

As far as I know, they have yet to report on the POLITICO story about Obama letting the Hezbos deal coke in the U.S.

Jane

Boy I am so hopeful the Iranian regime falls. But I assume the protestors need help from us.

I've got a close friend who is Iranian, and who was in college here when the Shah fell. He father worked for the Shah. Actually he worked for himself which involved giving 50% of all profits to the Shah. They were fine with that given what happened. Don't forget, before the current regime, Iran was the Paris of the Mideast. I would so love to see it return to that, and to visit.

Please Potus, help the protestors.

California Supreme Court Set For Ruling That Could Cut Pensions For Public Workers

For decades now public pensions have been guided by one universal rule which stipulates that current public employees can not be 'financially injured' by having their future benefits reduced. On the other hand, that 'universal rule' also necessarily stipulates that taxpayers can be absolutely steamrolled by whatever tax hikes are necessary to fulfill the bloated pension benefits that unions promise themselves.

Alas, that one 'universal rule' may finally be at risk as the California Supreme Court is currently considering a case which could determine whether taxpayers have an unlimited obligation to simply fork over whatever pension benefits are demanded of them or whether there is some "reasonableness" test that must be applied. Here's more from VC Star:

At issue is the "California Rule," which dates to court rulings beginning in 1947. It says workers enter a contract with their employer on their first day of work, entitling them to retirement benefits that can never be diminished unless replaced with similar benefits.

It's widely accepted that retirement benefits linked to work already performed cannot be touched. But the California Rule is controversial because it prohibits even prospective changes for work the employee has not yet done.

The ballooning expenses are an issue that Gov. Jerry Brown will face in his final year in office despite his earlier efforts to reform the state's pension systems and pay down massive unfunded liabilities.

His office has taken the unusual step of arguing one case itself, pushing aside Attorney General Xavier Becerra and making a forceful pitch for the Legislature's right to limit benefits.

"Lots of people in the pension community are paying attention to these cases and are really interested in what the California Supreme Court is going to do here," said Amy Monahan, a University of Minnesota professor who studies pension law.

"For years, self-interested parties, overly generous promises whose true costs were often shrouded by flawed actuarial analyses, and failures of public leadership had caused unsustainable public pension liabilities," his office wrote. A ruling is expected before Brown leaves office in January 2019.

I was prepared to give Obama the benefit of the doubt, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, when he was elected.
His craven non-response to the Iranian resistance was to me an eye-opener.
Pure, unadulterated, shameless appeasement if not actual collaboration with a brazenly repressive Islamist regime in the jackbooted stomping of the mildest assertion of freedom by incredibly courageous individuals. He not only stood by but actively supported the regime. Appalling.
I have few illusions about the ability of the current protesters to succeed, though I wish them well with all my heart. What I do know is that Trump will not let them die in vain.
