Oneth.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Well, that was certainly something.

Now this dem is calling this a "Russian show trial."

Now he is reading emails of NeverTrumpers.

Pinandpuller

I don't know if it was live or not but I just heard a little bit of Stzok treading water while I moved my car into the shade. What a weasel.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

Bringing forward:

daddy sez "...then were selectively given their Clearances back so that they could be allowed to look at their work material to prepare for their testimonies. It may have been Gowdy who said that."

Then just like Gen. Flynn.
Oh, wait!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

A good question has been asked:

How do we know that this attitude isn't rampant throughout the FBI?

Jane

This hearing forced me to start cocktail hour early. I take no responsibility going forward!

glasater

I don't know how the Ds could be more disgusting in this Strzok hearing.

Jane

Other than his lies I think the most damaging testimony has been about his "smelling" Trump supporters.

Jack is Back!

Does Strzok truly believe that this FBI 'investigation' is a victory notch in Putin's belt? Probably not.

TM,

I think the word you were looking for there is "deflection", and for the guy who famously texted "[that] there is no there, there" is now using Russia, Russia as a consideration of the political intent of the hearing, is beyond irony. And think about it, he is demonstrating, like his bosses, Comey and McNabe, what a bunch of know-it-all, arrogant power players the FBI has become. I wonder how many innocent people are in jail or dead because of them, and how many guilty people like Hillary are walking free as jaybirds?

Bunky

Is this when we hear “hundreds of agents will resign”

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jane,

Going to make myself a martini. I just needed a partner in crime.

daddy

Watching this shit Strzok base his lack of bias on Horowitz's IG Report makes me personally want to slap Horowitz. Oh well.

I don't know what happened earlier but from the little I have seen Gohmert in my opinion moved momentum in the direction of Strzok and the Dems. I considered Gohmert's poorly stated and poorly focused emotional rant almost equivalent to that old McCarthy Hearing thing we've always heard about "Have you no Shame , Congressman?, have you no shame."

Just my opinion but Gohmert did the cause of Justice no favors today. He might as well just have put a big "KICK ME" sign on the back of the Republicans.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

"What a weasel. "

Weasels and snakes are not evil animals. I've decided the appropriate creature is the scorpion. They have no redeeming quality and live only to strike and kill.

James D.

How do we know that this attitude isn't rampant throughout the FBI?

Based on everything we’ve seen the FBI’s leadership and senior personnel do and say over the last two years (and the absence of principled resignations or whistleblower leaks from lower level employees), it seems pretty clear that this attitude IS rampant throughout the FBI.

Thomas Collins

The coup participants need to keep different options open. If Stormy/Cohen or Trump is Psychiatrically Unfit for Office or Trump Is Acting As a Tyrant Would doesn't work, there's always the Mueller/Russian Collusion angle. And even if there is no basis for that angle, if the coup plotters can keep that one going, perhaps Mueller will hoke up a financial crime.

The coup plotters are the most dangerous sort to a republic in that they are doing this not only for power and money, but also because they truly believe that protecting and enhancing the post-modern therapeutic borderless state framework is doing Gaia's work.

Bunky

Here’s what happened today: nobody is getting charged. They can do whatever they want to anybody. And the beat goes on

Jack is Back!

I think it all started under FBI director Robert Mueller, when you think about it. But then the FBI has always been tainted when you consider the crap J.Edgar pulled in his spying and extortion activities.

How about all the domestic Islamic terror attacks where the FBI knew of perps beforehand, and had interviewed them as possible terrorists?

Sue

I’m pretty sure no one but die hard political junkies are watching the hearing. I’m watching reruns of NCIS. And late night tv, where most get their news anyway, will have Strzok winning no matter who is asking the questions. Or grandstanding. That’s all these hearings are anyway. Theater.

narciso

Well seeing the example of Hansen, and that bureau agent on the west coast, its hard to see that they have not been penetrated.

I'd like to give him a purple eye.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

James D. - it isn't "pretty clear" until I see it in the media. My McClatchy rag will never print anything about it.

Jack is Back!

Go to the sidebar: Currently on Memeorandum, and you will see how the left is going to spin it. I wonder how many agents the NYTimes has in their pocket?

Momto2

I agree, Jane. That line was one of the most horrible things I read.

As daddy said in the previous thread, we only had the texts and a few still photos of him. He is lifting the veil today and it's not a pretty sight.

When you see him in action it's...well...like this:

Jane

Thanks MM. I appreciate it! Cheers!

Beasts of England

It's martini time? Okay - I'm in!! :)

Jack is Back!

Oh, BTW, for those of you on the upper East Coast, don't forget the Delta Aquarids start soon followed by the Perseids, comet and shooting star show.

Jane

Yup Mom, and he turns bright red when he is lying,cheating, spewing - IOW being himself.

BTW I loved when he said he doesn't lie.

Momto2

Arrogance and contempt for all of us~

Beasts of England

Gutierrez is a [redacted].

Jack is Back!

I had a friend who was a prosecutor before he joined the old firm, tell me that it is easy to spot liars during interrogatories or in examination. A liar must remember every lie. If you tell the truth, not so much. So, like Jordan, Gowdy and other's, they are plugging away to find which lie Strzok can't remember, and I think, today they found a few.

Catsmeat

"Definition of éclat;

5. French pastry filed with cat's meat." Ig, you bad.

M2M, daddy, thanks for the link to the Hereford monastic library--how cool. And the sidebar at the BBC site led to "the donkey libraries of Columbia," with a very cute donkey saddled with large book bags--like the Bookmobile but a donkeymobile! That was very cute. As for the manuscripts at Herculaneum, there was a thriving Christian community there when the volcano blew, and so what I would particularly want would be to affirm the pre-70 AD date of the Gospels! That would be proof indeed.

Pinandpuller

Gutierrez is a human Glory Hole.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

My conclusions:

1. The FBI should be disbanded, except for the fingerprint and forensics labs, which can serve as resources for state and local police departments.

2. Intelligence should be turned over to the military, who screen people better and swear an oath which they are held accountable to.

3. Retire everyone in the FBI with their pensions, with the requirement that they not work in government again.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

Do I believe Strzok's honest testimony or his lying emails?

This is painful watching. I'm itching to throw a shoe at the TV.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Oh for God's sake,

Guiterrez is an ass.

Momto2

Dental update - endodontist found a crack in my tooth so no root canal. Was sent immediately to an oral surgeon who (thankfully) worked me in and extracted the molar.

Now I'll need a bridge or implant $$$. Endodontist says the accident possibly caused the tooth to crack. Was glad to be numb for several hours and now I'm home with antibiotics and hydrocodone. No alcohol so I cannot join you in an early cocktail but grateful to have that part behind me.

They thought my BP was excellent for being in pain and facing the procedure (122/88) so I obviously had not been watching or listening to the hearings. :)

Pinandpuller

Scott Dejarlais is my guy. Savage.

Jane

He turns red when he lies.

Janet 🚬

Insulting the Khan family??

Whatever happened to that joker?
Are Dems & MFMers still visiting the grave of their son? That was a big deal for a day or so.

Pinandpuller

Let me check my notes so I can answer your question honestly.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

daddy - I believe Gohmert was not calm and collected because he firmly believes--reliable sources--that he has been monitored by "the other side." Makes me wonder about extent of the Awan business.

Beasts of England

Gowdy is a sharp guy.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I bet you cash money that few GOP agents donated money to Trump because they weren't looking to buy favors.

Isn't it amazing that the democrats, who for years sucked up to the commies, are now suddenly the biggest enemies of the Kremlin ever seen?

Pinandpuller

This guy with the Jamie Lee Curtis haircut is pretty good.

Janet 🚬

My concern was Russia on social media???

SO stupid.

Pinandpuller

Did Kelly ax an actual question

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Sean Spicer claims that back when Hillary Clinton was expected to win the 2016 election, and Trump was warning it would be "rigged," the Homeland Security Dept. assured them there was simply no way Russia could manipulate the outcome https://t.co/lqxPXRojIY via @alanagoodman

Beasts of England

Obama also said there was no way to sway our elections. That was then, I guess...

Janet 🚬

This guy is good.

Rep. Labrador

Jane

Yes he is.

Pinandpuller

The first instance ever of a Labrador ripping a guy's throat out. Where's he from? I think I see where he's going. To one of the other branches.

Pinandpuller

Ooh, I have a pink tie and Barak Obama hand gestures/

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Glad to see Labrador got both the hot mike statement to Medvedev and the debate statement to Romney on the record.

How many votes did Putin take from Hillary? He sat at a table with Jill Stein, why isn't she up there?

So-called Commander in Chief? David Duke?! Roy Moore? Who is this idiot?

Ahoy!

Pinandpuller

Degenerates hahah! How many animal metaphors can I fit into one run on sentence?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

Glad to see Ace post those tweets because Pohoretz has had me blocked on Twitter for a couple of years.

If you ask me, the neo-cons are a long-term Russian effort to infiltrate the conservative movement and push commie ideas.

I would like Kristol, Podhoretz, French, and Boot called to testify before Congress.

James D.

MM @ 3:53

There are plenty of horror stories about incompetence, corruption and rampant perjury with the FBI’s forensics unit, too. I don’t think they get a pass,

No to the pensions, too. I have no interest in paying lavish benefits to people who despise me and are trying to overthrow my President. I’m willing to go as far as letting them walk with no retirement, and a lifetime ban on working in any capacity for any government or law enforcement at any level, in return for not prosecuting them for treason.

narciso

Idaho near Lyle's way, or eib if memory serves.

daddy

What a liar to say he does not recall having ever heard Obama saying, "The 1980's are calling and they want their Foreign Policy back."

Thats as big a lie as Comey not knowing Huma was marred to Weiner.

FWIW,

I have the benefit of Dartmouth sitting on the couch next to me acting as a Barometer. Very interesting.

narciso

His creme brulee, had too much crust.

Pinandpuller

Do you know how it is when you say funny stuff to your lover, Mr Chairman?

I yield that question to my colleague from South Carolina.

Jane

"I would like Kristol, Podhoretz, French, and Boot called to testify before Congress."

No you wouldn't. The elitism would drive you nuts!

Beasts of England

I'm impressed to be hearing from someone even more arrogant than Obama. Dayum.

Jane

Oh dear he is getting redder and redder!

Pinandpuller

I didn't know how long it was going to take to frame PDJT, Mr Chairman.

Pinandpuller

Do Democrats know how to pronounce names?

Janet 🚬

This Dem chick doesn't know Strzok's name.

Pinandpuller

HOO-KE-D ON PUH-HONICS WOR-KED FOR MEH!!! FOR MEH!!!

Extraneus

Strozak?

Janet 🚬

Puerto Rico is under water!!! Mr. STTTTROZACK.

Beasts of England

But what about Guam!! It's tipping over!

Pinandpuller

95% sure she's an ex NJ school teacher, Janet.

Pinandpuller

I'm not kissing him, lady, I know where his mouth has been.

Janet 🚬

That lady has a weird mouth..maybe she can't pronounce his name correctly.

Extraneus

Didn't someone just say impugning the President was against the rules?

Beasts of England

She has a weird brain - that's the issue.

Pinandpuller

Is Family Guy still on?

Hey Pe-tah! Remember when you and Lisa Page and Osama Bin Laden colluded to bring down the Trump Presidency?

Jack is Back!

Interesting that Kristol, Podhoretz and Boot have generational ties to Russia and the eastern bloc, no?

That said, I am biased, just like Strzok admitted. We all have political views but I can absolutely do my duty as a fellow customer at Loeb's Deli, and not punch Admiral Bill in the nose.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

daddy sez: "I have the benefit of Dartmouth sitting on the couch next to me acting as a Barometer. Very interesting."

I bet.

Has anyone told Strzok that he and his band of insurgents have left the FBI in tatters. It ain't the hearings.

Janet 🚬

((She has a weird brain - that's the issue.))

Hahaahaha!

Frau Edith Steingehirn

Where is lyle, btw?

Beasts of England

Holy shit!! He was out of scope and still had SCI access?! Unreal.

Jack is Back!

Weird mouth?

Is it Carolyn Maloney from Lunguyland?

narciso

Yes, but kristol and podhoretz sr and probably boot's per were more discerning.

Janet 🚬

"Every democrat sounds dumber than the last one." - Jane

True

Pinandpuller

I'm not a security expert.

Wat

Beasts of England

He's full of shit, Pin. He knows damn well that he has to be read-out - at least until his next poly.

narciso

Well its good to know counterintelligence has nothing to so with security.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

"Every democrat sounds dumber than the last one"

It's the far left side of the Bell Curve, Jane.

Jane

This guy has been interfering all day long. He's dangerous. Probably wants to be speaker.

Jack is Back!

Beasts,

I think I posted here the delta in numbers of TSC(crypto) clearances when I got mine in 1966 and the present today. It was an astronomical increase. Back then all the service Investigative agencies like ncis and osi did the background checks. 26 weeks minimun. Now its contracted out. 8 weeks minimum.

Better criminal and drug records, better school records, better employment records, but it just means lots of duds slip through. I mean lots.

Pinandpuller

This is a campaign...

Agreed. The democrat talking points are the point of order

The Rule of Law...

My sides.

Jack is Back!

So, after listening to Strzok who followed Comey, McCabe, and Wray, do you feel safer than before?

Captain Hate on the iPhone

daddy sez: "I have the benefit of Dartmouth sitting on the couch next to me acting as a Barometer.

Are we just supposed to guess at the barometric pressure?

Beasts of England

It's very different now, JiB. The FBI showed up to interview my neighbors - in person - for my initial TS clearance. Actual agents, not some contractor checking my Facebook posts...

Pinandpuller

Beasts

I'm guessing it's like a CDL driver or pilot having a current physical and still driving or flying, right?

Pinandpuller

Not having a current physical.
