TM, they need one candidate for each victim group.

Perhaps you can explain your rationale Maryrose??

That will be hilarious.

Hopefully they won’t figure it out until it is too late.

Just to be on the safe side I would get them in lower numbers with different people purchasing them.
Ohio is pretty good with gun laws and the NRA so there shouldn’t be a problem.

Good to see you!
Sorry, you are fourth.

Sbwaters

So much speculation, including my own.

No telling where McCabe’s threat is aimed. Could be Trump, could be Comey, ... but it also could be Rosenstein.

No evidence, but curiosity.

maryrose

Should be Belaj

maryrose

I wonder what Rosenstein will do?

narcisocenfl

Its like those mob pictures when one of the gang gets pinched, in this case mccabe, and comey Mueller and Co let it happen, and he swears revenge.

Ralph L

Now if they can just find enough Calif Republicans and get them to vote.

Buckeye, from the previous thread, one could easily burn through 100 rounds in friendly practice at an IDPA match and another couple hundred practicing during the week.

I would think that concern would be raised with sudden large single purchases or purchases where one was not known.

McCabe's lawyer is the ex-IG for the DOJ.

This seems sort of odd.

Not really remember huma hired the ex deputy us atty for Alexandria, zebley was one of Mueller top men then he represented Justin cooper, the revolving door can give you vertigo.

McCabe needs to lawyer up and that also means he has to spend a lot of HIS money to defend himself.

Thanks for your concern.


SBW

Since this guy was in your neck of the woods, perhaps you can find out just how much he actually purchased.

Until I had reason to buy 5.56, probably never bought more than 100 rounds of anything at one time. But first purchase of 5.56 was 1000 rounds. That constituted a significant change in my purchasing "habit" would be my guess.

Good thing the colonists didn't get too much scrutiny at the local shot tower.

I hope Levin singles out Kristol on one of his shows. He regularly lumps him in with "the pseudo conservative media" along with the usual suspects but I think he deserves particular scrutiny from Ol' Yeller.

I can't remember reviling someone I didn't actually know as much as I revile Bill Kristol.
I can't think of words sufficiently descriptive to capture his true depth of iniquity.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

I have been suspicious of Kristol going back many years. His last stint in government was as Dan Quayle's Chief of Staff, where he was the one to incite Quayle to split from President Bush and set himself up as his own man. We see how well that worked out.

I also firmly believe he instigated the Jeffords Jump in the summer of 2001, causing the "shared leadership" mess that Bush 43 had to deal with.

He seems to delight in causing trouble and this over-the-top reactioin to Trump indicates to me that he has been involved in something shady. A few of the other Never Trumpers also fall into that category, particularly Risk Wilson, who apparently went into a blind rage last night on CNN.

I also hope Levin goes after him. I would like to see Kristol humiliated, if nothing else.

Rick Wilson is the type of trash the GOP regularly litters the party apparatchiks with, like Schmidt and Wallace. DJT obviously has no use for quislings like them and they're desperate to be regarded as relevant, so they say outlandish things like bratty punks.

Joan,Lisa Barsoomian specializes in responding to FOIA requests--it's an arcane specialty which I think few lawyers handle so it's not unusual that she handled them for so many. And its really not very substantive representation.
Ext, in the last thread I agreed with you on CTH's error about the OIG.

Bela1

While waiting to head out for breakfast with my son home from college, I flipped on the cable network news this AM & as sure as most chickens come home to roost, MSM gets my BP boiling in a matter of minutes.

Do any of these idiots care about the swill emanating from their mouths on an hourly basis? How about the "guests" with their "expert" opinions which are so over the top that it defies logic. Do any of them truly believe what they spout on air? Does McCabe care what he did, or, can this let's play "I'm the victim" end by doing some simple investigating because the MSM cannot be trusted? Not one commentator seems to know exactly what the hell McCabe did which is criminal. I had to explain to my son why this seditionist was fired because he'll never get the facts on what happened from the TV or web unless he comes here to JOM. Even FOX had Geraldo on after showing him taking shots of whiskey. He was the final straw & threw my BP into high gear with his disgusting display of self-serving idiocy. "Donald Trump is my dear friend but what he did is political...." Say again? The media has gone mad and sadly it's due to laziness and self-inflicted denial. On another channel...it's how dare they fire McCabe two days away from receiving his pension. These are the talking points which producers authorize?

I've come to the conclusion that those airing on Morning Joe suffer from mental illnesses.I also noticed this AM that even Hugh Hewitt is out of his (bleeping) mind.

So the 2018 Spring Cleaning continues....
Thank God!

Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone.

Mccabe cares he seems to been outsmarted, like the coyote, but this is just act 1, it isn't even the playoffs. Most of these other idiots have been listening to brennan or laufman, or rybicki spinning their tale,

Yes Dr. Evil wee crying over Mccabe lost pension.

Given that I live on a rock pile where it is not legal to ship certain things on the ferry system, my last ammo purchase was about $2300 worth so MT Jr could drive it up in his truck. Never bothered to count, but by unit cost, that was probably ~6K rounds. Haven’t shot hardly any, however when the AR 2.0 balloon goes up, I will have plenty of bartering mat’l. :)

Something I overlooked last night reading McCabe’s statement on his firing.

“It was not a secret, it took place over several days, and others, including the Director, were aware of the interaction with the reporter.”

Comey testified under oath he never allowed leaking.

His father was one of the original neocons. I hesitated to answer that because the term is used by the ZH crowd and elsewhere as shorthand for warmongering Jew.

Yes they misunderstand the term, jeet her now at Chris Hughes tax loss, has made a career of it.

Michael  (fpa P4F)

Wishing everyone in the JOM family a very Happy St. Patrick's Day. Eat up, drink up, and celebrate your Irish heritage, but take care if you're driving.

With the news of McCabe's firing, and the epic upset of the 'Hoos by UMBC (UMBC ? - what the he**'s a UMBC ?) it looks like "catching-up status" is some kind of mythical place I'm *never* going to reach . . .

The vitriolic attacks on Pres. Trump by Brennan and Swalwell sound almost unhinged. Is it Trump's threat to the Deep State, or threat to their plans to cripple him/ensure a permanent Dem government that has them so concerned?
But I'm rejoicing in the McCabe firing, and hoping that he is just the first of *many* to go down.

Can't overlook wishing Porch a belated Happy B'day, too.

And thumbs up to lyle's great wine dinner selection,
and to ed's kudos for Merl Reagle's genius at crossword puzzles.

Back to March Madness, mad Dems in the news, and the eternal quest to catch-up with JOM!

Kristol, like most snotty brats, has been overly class conscious. He liked the concept of the Tea Party but not it producing parvenus like Sarah Palin or, dear God, COD.

As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State. #DrainTheSwamp

Making false statements to federal investigators is a crime. Ask Martha Stewart how that works.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe last night, in part because McCabe lied. To federal investigators.
...
Firing McCabe is a good start. Now prosecute.
I want indictments.
Including McCabe's.

I am not a vengeful man. Far from it. Oh, I engage in schadenfreude, the snickering over a mishap by someone I do not like.

But this is a very serious matter. We must prosecute to save the republic.

We gave the FBI way too much power, which resulted in J. Edgar Hoover. Rather than rein in that power, 46 years later we have an organization that tried to sabotage the Trump administration, and overturn the election.

We need to hold McCabe, Jim Comey, and others accountable for their lawlessness. Trying to nullify my vote (not to mention 62 million others) with a bogus Russian scandal is an outrage that deserves punishment.

University of Michigan Baltimore county

One of these is not like the others. I agree The Retrievers is a clunky name although I like The Terriers and not just as part and parcel of my Airedale fixation.

Until last night I thought it was University of Maryland Baltimore Campus and was in the city like Johns Hopkins or Goucher instead of being in Catonsville. Fun Old Line State factoid that I think I remember but am too lazy to look up: Baltimore city is not part of Baltimore county even though it's almost completely surrounded by it. The city stands apart from any county for some reason, probably in the city charter and related to money.

Good Morning!

I reread this article late last night from Sarah Carter, which had the full extent of the just released Strzok-Page texts.

In those texts, before they mention the [REDACTED} name, they refer to "her" once and "she" twice, in discussing someone who has provided advice about making sure there are 6 at dinner to make it not look like collusion. They makes me think [REDACTED} might be a woman, not McCabe. What women might fit? Sally Yates?
