narciso

Some details I wasn't aware of,


http://20committee.com/2014/01/02/new-intelligence-al-qaida-was-behind-the-benghazi-murders/

narciso

What would we do without Brooksie, I wish they would let us know;

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/01/18/david_brooks_have_we_ever_met_a_voter_who_is_going_to_vote_on_benghazi_no.html

Gus

Narciso. The Day after Benghazi, my younger brother called me. You know the deal, my little bro is State Dept Diplomatic Security. Well, my bro was Stateside that day. He KNEW EXACTLY what had happened. This is all a huge Joke/Charade, and the LIBTARD MEDIA and LIBTARD MARXIST SYCCOPHANTS don't care about anything except POWER and CONTROL

Gus

Narciso, I clicked on your David Brooks link, despite knowing better. I puked. It was predictable. Brooks is a fuktard and a libtard bastard. His face and smirk is what made me VOMIT. Howard Kurtz is the same. Joe Trippi is worse, but at least Trippi is on record as being a LIBTARD FUCKUP.

Ignatz

Interesting that Brooks thinks Benghazi was none of Hillary's responsibility, but both Hillary and Barry thought it was to the extent that they lied through their teeth about in front of the dead guy's caskets.

Kinda sad when the remora are more in the tank than the sharks they feed off of.

BTW; "Controversy surrounds whether a remora's diet is primarily leftover fragments, or the feces of the host."
Which would be more likely with Brooks?

narciso

I tap the link, before I click, Gus, so according to that Yemeni paper, there's an NSA intercept of Jashef talking to Zawahiri, speaking of Benghazi, you would think they would bring that up in this discussion,

Ignatz

--But let me tell you with great confidence that if you don't make plain your point, the responses will dry up.--

I've already given up on the sinuous little pseudo-Socratic twerp.

Gus

Narciso, the whole deal is predicated on EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE of NARCISO.
Narciso, I love and respect you. You are WAY intelligent, and you are way way logical and full of intellect. Everything we are dealing with, is predicated on INTELLIGENT LYING ASSHOLES, SUCKERING the LOW INTELLECT or LOW INFO MASS POPULOUS. Nefarious lying ass holes are counting on SUCKERING and LYING to the POPULOUS.

Gus

Btw. Ignatz, you and I have not chatted for a while. I really hope you are doing well, and my friend. I love you.

sbwaters

Hah, Danube, as you wrote your kindly instructive appeal to our visitor, I was wondering if it wasn’t time for the Narcisolator to do its work.

Gus

Sbw. Bingo. Danube is intelligent, and he does not suffer fools gladly. But even Danube has limits.

narciso

Or killfile, the other wasn't working, since last week, the confirmation of the fraud of the Plame matter was the big get, this week the unraveling of the case for intervention in Syria, is the dog that has acted like a basenji,

sbwaters

Narciso, regarding that Twitchy take on Salon wanting to nationalize Fox, two points:

1) Does anyone visit Salon anymore?

2) Salon must be really desperate for eyeballs.

narciso

Not really, the last big deal was an item, related to my most recent observation, where they discovered the Times's foreign policy coverage was substandard,

Gus

Narciso, if the NY SLIMES reporting was judged on the BANKRUPT MARXIST OBAMACARE SCALE. They would be FINED.

Gus

Ignatz, Rodham, Obumblefuk, Biden, Kerry and even Colin Powell were there at ANDREWS. At FRECKING ANDREWS. NOT DOVER. Andrews PHOTO OP. Biden talked about Dougherty's BALLS to his family. Rodham BLOVIATED like a DRUNKEN SHREW, how SHE "had NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT VIDEO!!!""" It's FUCKING SICK BULLSHIT THEATER. The LIES to cover their fat asses make me sick.

Ignatz

-- I love you.--

Thanks Gus. Likewise.
It slowly and almost imperceptibly gets a little better day by day, but there are still plenty of tears.

Ignatz

And now a shower and a snooze.
Perhaps I'll dream of that Plumb Crazy hemi Challenger with the shaker hood at Barrett Jackson. :)

Gus

Ignatz. I mean it friend. You are an awesome person, and I absolutely am a better man, for knowing you.

Captain Hate

Did any of you watch the Oklahoma State/Kansas game from the Phog? It was an exciting game for a variety of reasons but near the end they had a bang/bang play where one ref called a blocking foul on Okla State and the other ref called an offensive foul on Kansas. They conferred for a while (on the replay it looked like the Okie moved under the guy after he became airborne but it was very close) and then announced it was a double foul with a call on each player and gave the ball to Kansas because the possession arrow was going to them. Even though the zebras may have been patting themselves on the back for using the wisdom of Solomon in resolving the situation, I'm pretty sure they screwed the pooch because either it was a block or an offensive foul. There's no middle ground on this.

Despite that bit of dumbasserey, it was a very exciting game. Joel Embiid for Kansas has to have every GM in the NBA spanking his monkey because he's a big guy with an almost infinite upside.

Gus

Hey Capn. How the heck are you friend?

Captain Hate

I'm pretty the heck good, Gus. Although I'm headed off to bed shortly. I've found a site which has tons of downloaded concerts that I've been sifting my way through.

Here's the link to one page which you can click on the alphabetical of what you're looking for: http://tela.sugarmegs.org/alpha/a.html

Gus

Thanks Capn. You're awesome my friend.

boricuafudd

Cap'n I thought the call offensive foul called was also goofy. The OSU player flopped, a flop worthy of the Premier League or La Liga in soccer.

The replays showed that there was no contact, yet after reviewing the "foul" OSU was given 2 shots and the ball. Those four points almost cost KU the game.

Gus

Boricuafudd, the REPLAY rules are SILLY. There is no intent of FIXING a bad call.

boricuafudd

Gus I realize that, but it could have been a regular foul which would have given OSU the two shots, I believe they were in the bonus at the time, but the free throws and the ball was excessive.

Regarding AA vs Dr's, I subscribe to the theory that many physical problems have roots in the spiritual realm. Unresolved spiritual conflict manifests first as mental/emotional problems, and then as physical ailments.

In AA I learned the difference between spirituality and religion. This knowledge was critical to my eventual recovery. Spiritual recovery as embodied in the Serenity Prayer goes a long way towards accepting a less than perfect physical recovery.

Grateful today for 24 years, 9 months, 2 days of recovery.

I have posted my final response to Truthbetold.

clarice feldman

I go to sleep and Gus and Iggy have become a couple. Not that it matters/ (Smooches to you both.)

Narciso--what interesting stuff. I'll try to read thru it all later. Great catches.

Good Morning JOM and thanks to Clarice for another great Pieces.

In New Film, A dramatic look at Mitt Romney's Loss of Confidence

"But for viewers who follow politics closely, especially for Republicans who desperately wanted to defeat Barack Obama, there is a revelation in "Mitt" that is not just unexpected but deeply disheartening. At a critical moment in the campaign -- the two weeks in October encompassing the first and second general election debates -- the Romney portrayed in "Mitt" struggled with a nagging pessimism and defeatism, unable to draw confidence even from a decisive initial debate victory over President Obama. Deep down inside, the Romney seen onscreen in "Mitt" seems almost resigned to losing to Obama in those crucial showdowns."

As they say read it all. Very revealing and I am left wondering why he is now back in the limelight.

peter

Today, Slim's dancing chimps are joined by a new chimp, Greg Grandin, who writes an entire article explaining the racism of the tea party. The basis of his assumption that the tea party is racist? The one idiot who showed up with a confederate flag at last October's Million Vet march. sheeesh.

Clarice @ 6:44 - zing!

miss Marple

Regarding Romney, I don't know what to think. He's a good man, but I am wondering if the time for him has passed.

I think we are past needing a smart money guy and more to the place where we need someone who will fight ferociously. Who would be pushing him to run again? Not his family, because I think they have had enough.

narciso

Milo Minderbinder, yes a very good analogy, clarice, Grandin is a Latin American specialist,
my that I mean a left partisan of the guerillas and Chavez, there was some semblance of a similar operation againsr Pablo Escobar, los Pepes who figure in Bowden's Killing Pablo, were allied with the Cali cartel,

Great job Clarice. I pay a lot of attention to the news yet I learn many new things from every Pieces.

Thanks.

From the article narciso linked: " the circumstances of Zambada-Niebla’s arrest raised eyebrows in Mexico. A mere five hours prior to the raid on his safe house, Zambada-Niebla had met with two special agents from the DEA in an upscale Mexico City hotel located across the street from the U.S. Embassy, according to court documents filed last year by both the prosecution and the defense. Zambada-Niebla attended the DEA meeting with Humberto Loya-Castro, a lawyer and adviser to the Sinaloa cartel. The defense argues that Loya-Castro had agreed to serve as an intermediary in the DEA’s communications with the cartel.

Nevertheless, then-U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who stepped down in June, dismissed Zambada-Niebla’s claims. “Contrary to [the] defendant’s claim, no immunity was conferred upon him… Nor was any immunity conferred upon Loya-Castro,” Fitzgerald declared in documents filed last September with the U.S. District Court in Chicago.

Still, Henning is skeptical of Zambada-Niebla’s chances in court. “It’s not an easy defense to make out,” he says. “It just can’t be his word against what the government says. A lot of times [when] these defenses are raised, they are not raised successfully."

Do you know what happened at trial? The article is from Nov 2012.


miss Marple

Clarice, I know Fitzgerald is now in the private sector. Do you know where and for whom he is working?

Captain Hate

As they say read it all. Very revealing and I am left wondering why he is now back in the limelight.

From that article, and everything else I saw, I'd have much rather voted for Ann than Mitt. That article just confirms every negative thing I thought about his candidacy.

narciso

I don't doubt that something like this happened, past is prologue, however it seems a bit too much like that episode from 'Sons of Anarchy'

windansea

Clarice

I think you are referring to my link above.

more:

As of now, Zambada Niebla's lawyers have successfully severed his case from the other defendants, and he will be tried alongside the Flores brothers. The trial date for the others is Jan 21, 2014; no trial date for Zambada Niebla has been set.

He's with Skadden Arps, Miss Marple

clarice feldman

Ah, yes, sorry windansea..Interesting to watch that case. Thanks.

Captain Hate

Thanks for the Pieces; that reads like the underlying plot in last week's POI.

narciso

Except for bitcoin bit, yes it's remarkable how close, they have come.

peter

So right, Narciso at 8:48; Look at Grandin's answer to question #3 at the LUN. What do you say to people who say Che was a totalitarian murderer? To say he ducks the question is an insult to ducks.

clarice feldman

Thanks, CH--I never watch POI or anything on TV so they can't claim I cribbed it from them. There's a great piece in Thursday's {?} ESJ about how TV is dying in which, inter alia, the writer bemoans the cable bundling, complicated remote/channel systems all of which have at the end a sea of almost unmitigated crap. Ah, a kindred soul..

clarice feldman

"ESJ" should be WSJ.

DMZ

I would, however, like to hear more about the special relationship between Perle and Feldman. Not too many details, if you know what I mean.

Captain Hate

The show has very topical subject matter intertwined in it. Even as annoying as I find Root, they've effectively incorporated her into the show without going full Rambaldi on us. And with the machine being completely unleashed while still providing numbers, through enhanced means now evidently, the sky is the limit to where the writers choose to take us.

I think it's the most interesting show on television bar none. It's a damn shame that it doesn't get the recognition that the HBO cabal does but as long as CBS feels that it's a viable entity, I got no complaints.

oops

Heh. The little people should eat cake.

"Instead, the New Jersey governor was whisked into an event at the Country Club of Orlando, and, later, a fund-raiser at a Palm Beach home owned by the heir to a sugar fortune.

Inside, Mr. Christie found what must pass, at this difficult moment, as an oasis for him: a group of Ferrari and Jaguar-driving Florida Republicans for whom traffic in New Jersey is a distant thought.

Getting into his Bentley after the fund-raiser, one guest, Geoffrey Leigh, called the controversy over the lane closures “little flies on the wall, quite frankly.”

A great report today at the end of Fox News Sunday's "Power Player of the Week" concerning 3-D printing in the medical field. (Last segment of FNS.)

In particular, the piece focused on reproducing organs (e.g. the heart) prior to performing any medical procedure (e.g stent emplacement). The docs say, being able to hold an accurate facsimile of the (damaged) heart in one's hand, before conducting the procedure is immensely helpful. So far, the 3-D printing of hearts has been done seven times.* The doc said that replacement hearts are not yet being printed, that doing so was a ways off, but now a case of being an eventuality rather than fiction.


*no insight re effect of ACA on this medical advance.

Regarding 3D PRinting: Both Pratt & Whitney and GE are moving quickly towards complex jet engine parts made this way. Prototyping and flight testing. UCONN has an engineering program set up in coop with P&W where they are making headway.

Regarding Benghazi: I was changing after my workout on Saturday and overheard a couple of died-in-the-wool dems talking. Amazed to find out that there is a secret paper coming out at just the right political moment that blames the lack of security in Benghazi on the Republicans for denying funding - specifically denying funding for security in Benghazi. Hard not to laugh out loud. I wanted to say to them, "What does it matter now?"
