If you ask me, this is Zuckerberg's version of "Baffle them with BS" which we witnessed a couple of days ago on Twitter.

Through all of his gobbledygook about conversational health and such, what he has done is hire some sociologist who is veheently ant-Republican and anti-Trump.

I can just see where the "conversational health" is heading.

His theory is that the FB rats are getting ahead of the blue wave petering out, and setting the table with pre-emptive excuses.

Hola GUS!

to your sarc question as to why i "hate" homosexuals....

it's the unequal protection under the law status they've engineered... to gain "privileges" under the law....vs the rest of us.

their campaign to sexualize the entire voting public, forcing a focus on "their issue" and subjugation of all others, has become so controlling but projects a power that is ultimately false--- like NOKO, the EU, Arab oil states, Iran, Red China and trade....

our ship will right itself and these hull-clinging queens of all stripes will find themselves underwater at worst, and in our wake at best.

that's on them, their lack of political imagination, and dependence on social blackmail.

Kev

Kevlar Kid

because so many patriotic Americans will be voting this fall, the mid-terms are going to wash away a lot of Blue.

it'll be close but we'll win it. the cheating will be high against us. but like it was with the Boozy House Dress, high morale will win out over mendacity.

the Kool Kids and the Prom Queen have been found out to be total scabbies.

Miss Marple

Kev,

You think those people waiting in the rain today until 7PM are going to stay home in November? Singing the Star Spangled Banner, too!

Not a chance.

Kevlar Kid

back when i was 10, my Maw led a local fight against a local developer who wanted to tear down the Meek (railroads and agriculture) Mansion across from our home. the 10 acre estate surrounding it had shrunk from the original land holdings of the 19th century.

Maw wanted a park. she found a local neighbor by canvass who had some coin and said he'd back her fight for a park. they won. we had a park three years later. it still stands.

it was a political fight. but it had a purpose--- to get something done that enriched our community. some 50 plus years later the neighborhood still shines because there IS NOT a 100 unit ghetto instead of a park.

politics used to get stuff done that had lasting value. what i see happening in Zerkeley today isn't politics at all. it's regulatory control.

Kevlar Kid

"You think those people waiting in the rain today until 7PM are going to stay home in November?"

uh no. i don't think that for a second. my comment spoke of "patriotic Americans." i'm supremely confident.

Kevlar Kid

so Z*ckF*ck's marching orders include throwing major shade on the mid-term results by impugning the integrity of the vote because of muh Russhhah?

i'll buy that theory.

"it was a sure thing and Russia cheated us out of our majorities in the House and Senate."

or something.

DICK DURBIN CALLS FOR KIRSTJEN NIELSEN’S RESIGNATION

“I am today calling on the architect of this humanitarian disaster, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, to step down,” Durbin said during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on family reunification efforts. “The family separation policy is more than a bureaucratic lapse in judgement, it is and was a cruel policy inconsistent with the bedrock values of this nation.”

Durbin reiterated his demand for resignation on Twitter following the hearing.

“In the name of the 711 lost children, the families that have been “deleted” by her agency, and common decency, I’m calling on Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, the architect of this humanitarian disaster, to step down,” Durbin said in a tweet.

The library made DVDs available again this week and they had a new release of great interest: Chappaquiddick. I'm about forty minutes into it and it's, so far, a very powerful film. The CIA operator from Zero Dark Thirty plays Ted, the dentist from The Hangover is an aide, and Jim Gaffigan is the Massachusetts State Attorney. Even the hardest screw that ever walked a turn at Shawshank appears as Robert McNamara.

and what do these masterminded Russkies put up on Z*ckF*ck which are interfering with casting votes in our elections?

how is the excrement coming out of the mouths of American media and the ooze of the Never Trump boils affecting the course of our elections?

big time lame-assed misdirection. must be that more "eyes" are being cast upon the Lyin Swine Media.

Miss Marple

Someone smarter than me could maybe answer me this: how hard would it be to make up a basic Twitter program?

It seems to me that posting in chronological order (like we do here) is pretty simple and actually what people want.

To that you add some sort of program which only shows the people you choose to follow, and a search engine for finding names of people to follow.

What else is there? Adding links, pictures and videos, I guess.

Marlene-also be careful about regularly voting absentee or having materials sent to your other home in several elections.

They do watch. Sometimes I was there during elections, especially early voting, and sometimes I drove down. Sometimes I had materials sent here depending on how crazy things were, but every election official I knew personally says they watch and cross reference.

Judicial Watch: New Emails Reveal FBI Official Peter Strzok Insisted on Retaining Declassification and other Authorities for Mueller Special Counsel Assignment

A series of emails reveal Strzok’s insistence that he retain all the authorities he held as a deputy assistant director (DAD) in the counterintelligence division (CD), including his security clearance, after his reassignment to the special counsel’s office. In a July 13, 2017 email to numerous FBI officials, some of whom are redacted, Strzok says:

Broadly, I need to be able to act at least in the capacity of my old CD DAD job – approve NSLs [national security letters], conduct [redacted] declassify information, [redacted] agent travel, requisitions, etc. Of those, the most problematic and one of the most essential is declassification authority.

In response, FBI assistant director of the Counterintelligence Division William Priestap assures Strzok he will remain free to act just as he did while a deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division and, further, that he will remain on the FBI’s books as a “floating DAD:”

In answer to your initial question, while assigned to the Special Counsel’s office, you will retain your CD DAD authorities, to include declassification authority.

Since you will take your non-transferrable declassification authority with you, CD will work to obtain another declassification authority slot for the DAD who is chosen to replace you.

Assuming the 7th floor approves, you will remain on CD’s books as a fourth (floating) DAD. When you move on from your DAD position, your DAD slot will revert back to HRD.

“These new emails show anti-Trump FBI official Peter Strzok’s ‘assignment’ gave the Mueller Special Counsel operation special authorities to target President Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We know Strzok can’t be trusted and the Special Counsel should tell us if Strzok abused his special authorities to target President Trump.”

DNC REFUSES TO PLAY RNC IN TIME-HONORED SOFTBALL GAME

Despite being a time-honored tradition going back many years, the DNC is refusing to play the RNC at this year’s annual softball game.

RNC sources tell The Daily Caller that they were “stunned” when Democrats abruptly pulled out of the good-natured game between leadership and staffers at opposing political organizations.

The game was an opportunity to put aside the partisan bickering and come together in friendly competition. The decade-old tradition typically ended in staffers having a drink at a nearby bar.

RNC sources familiar with the decision said the DNC told them that “all our players are out in the field this year. We won’t be able to play.”

...

The Daily Caller reached out to the DNC for comment, but they did not reply in time for publication.
