Doing catch-up and just got to this from the last thread 2 threads back now:

The Last Words Of Ambassador Stevens In Benghazi Have Been Revealed...

Diplomatic Security Special Agent Scott Wickland, the ambassador's bodyguard, revealed Stevens' harrowing last words:

“When I die, you need to pick up my gun and keep fighting," Stevens told Wickland.

This happened on Sept 11, 2012. Why was this kept from the public for 5 years? Why were we not allowed to know that? Who benefitted?

It used to be that that we admired famous words of American Patriots, especially if they were their last. For Instance---"I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."

So why the censorship?

"I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."

"Don't give up the ship!"

"I have not yet begun to fight!"

"Damn the torpedo's, full speed ahead!"


“When I die, you need to pick up my gun and keep fighting."

Wickland's testimony:

In his testimony, Wickland admitted he didn’t know if he was going to survive the attack. He also described the heartbreaking moment he lost Stevens and U.S. State Department staffer Sean Smith.

Wickland said he saw Stevens and Smith crawling behind him as they searched for a bedroom with a window to escape out of. When he exited the window, he was alone.

Vomiting from the smoke and taking fire, Wickland climbed out of the room and pulled the ladder up.

“That's when I knew [Stevens and Smith] were dead,” Wickland recalled.

Bergdahl to plead guilty:http://nypost.com/2017/10/06/sgt-bowe-bergdahl-to-plead-guilty-to-desertion-misbehavior/


Justice dies in darkness



From our lurking unit: In reply to Tom B,

One would think so, but the following dimension might be hard to adjust.

The Government has expanded its workforce since 2008, while the Private workforce has contracted to what it was in 1978. So, when the teachers go back to work, it swamps the data with its sheer size.


From Narc's link:

But another reason that I never considered trying to report the story myself, even, truly, in the years after I did start writing about gender and power as my beat, was because it felt impossible. Sisyphean. I remembered what it was like to have the full force of Harvey Weinstein — back then a mountainous man — screaming vulgarities at me, his spit hitting my face. I had watched him haul my friend into the street and try to hurt him. That kind of force, that kind of power? I could not have won against that.

Oh brother. Gimme a break.

On Topic!!!, so reposting this from the last thread:

Good point by a Rush listener calling in in hour 2. Caller calls in and says that he thinks the Harvey Weinstein case gives a picture into the brain of Hillary and the Left. No wonder these Leftist women always depict men as depraved, sex obsessed dirtbags. They all know Harvey Weinstein and he's their poster boy for this activity. Same as "Lying" Ted Kennedy, and "the rapist" Bill Clinton, and all the rest of them. The gals of the Left project that behavior onto all men because it's the behavior that they see from the men of the Left.

So what say we put on our JOM Hive-mind thinking caps and start listing the depraved Left Wing Men. So for starters

Harvey Weinstein---Demanding Sexual favors for jobs
Ted Kennedy---Lush, drunk, murderer, serial adulterer
John Kennedy---Serial adulterer, drug addict
Bill Clinton---Rapist, sexual assaulter
Jesse Jackson---Adulter
Al Gore---Deep chakra
Bill Ayers---imprisoned a woman until she had sex with a Black radical


Notice how she lumps Trump in with Cosby, Ailes, O'Reilly, etc.

Has anyone accused Trump of sexual harassment (yet)? Paying off women to keep quiet?

Old Lurker

Oh darn I was answering Narc & MM on the old thread:

Narc. Softball.

Once upon a time, my two partners and I did a deal. We each made Capital Contribution of $1,000 each to form a new LLC (technically the first entity was an LP but when LLCs came along we converted). We bought up land with bank loans (Prime + 5% when Prime was 20%), converted warehouses to retail space with bank loans, then tore it all down so we could build a humongous office building on the by then valuable site with loans from a big pension fund.

Twenty years later we sold the office building and netted, here I will be vague on purpose, cash of way more than $10M but less than say $200M. Half that went to pay the taxes (cap gains rate, thank you and yes we timed the sale because the rumor was that the 15% tax rate was going up under Obama who was about to be elected) we had deferred for two decades, divided up the balance and told the accountants & lawyers to close down the LLC and make sure it was all audit-proof.

Accountant called a few months later and told us she could not close down the LLC because my two partners and I had never actually paid in the $1,000 each in Capital and that would have to be paid before the LLC went away.

True story.

Old Lurker,

Thanks for the explanation of yet another world of finance I don't understand. I am learning a lot of stuff between all of you.

So, if I read your story correctly, the only cash you used was the initial $1000.

Don't you think it odd that a supposed real estate investor would pay cash for a house, in fact, a couple of houses?

No one has turned up any properties so far but personal houses. Also, they aren't particularly investment-type properties.

I don't care if Ambassador Stevens was a total prog, he atoned for it by dying as well as a person can. Gives me chills.

His words make Hillary's "What difference now does it make" doubly criminal. If she had the ability to be shamed she would commit seppuku over their pointless deaths and her unspeakable callousness before and after she made four unnecessary heroes.

Exactly right. Survey the casinos; do his winnings match up?

I doubt it. This guy is a thievin' hustler. But the weirdness of leaks to firm up his narrative still concerns me.


Yeah, Mom2. I think he was censured for that. Ask Janet what a heinous punishment that is.

Yep I am suspicious of this whole "won lots of money gambling" story. If he really was, he wouldn't brag about it. I have never heard of a pro video poker guy making $5 million per year, if so he would be making $20 million a year selling books on how to do it.

Somethings fishy, follow the money. Casinos and IRS would have records of anything over $10 k

Old Lurker

MM, lots of people from lots of countries desiring to hide cash will buy houses or condos in the US for all cash.

Also, note in my story we never did put the $1,000 capital in until the end when the CPA discovered we had just put IOU's in on day 1.

The many and vile crimes of all these Democrat politicians and leftist media figures and fundraisers were "open secrets."

Their friends and co-workers knew. Their acquaintances and business rivals new. The media knew. Everyone knew...except the general public, to whom all these rapists, pedophiles and perverts were sold as upstanding citizens and leaders and role models.

I don't ever want to hear another word from anyone working at any MSM outlet whining about "fake news" or how conservatives don't trust them, or anything else. Because they are all a bunch of goddamned liars who have spent decades protecting - and promoting - some of the worst human beings ever to walk the earth.

I hadn't thought about teachers as being seasonally employed, expecting that the payroll survey would be adjusted in one way or another: add them in to June, July, and August, or subtract them out of the rest of the year. Option one I'd expect.

But then in the household survey, would teachers respond in August by saying they were not employed when they were really still on vacation? I wouldn't if I were a teacher, but I suppose there can be a fair number of teachers between jobs over the course of a summer. That many? Maybe.

Admittedly shooting from the hip in my post at LL -- as usual. However, I'd like to see if the September household survey looks like this (Employed = +906,000) every year when teachers go back to school, but I can't find that data right now.

+906,000 still seems like a big number, and I'm still inclined to give Trump some credit for it. The payroll survey would still seem to me to be the outlier, hurricanes notwithstanding. Consumer and business confidence have improved over the year. That along with regulatory relief I expect would be reflected in employment numbers sooner or later. Thought it was now. Guess we'll see.


Have we heard this before?

Investigators are looking into two key pieces of evidence that seem to suggest that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was not entirely alone in his Mandalay Bay hotel room.

The first is a cell phone charger that does not match any of the devices that belonged to the gunman.

The second is a hotel record showing that one of Paddock's key cards was used to access his room while his car was outside of the hotel's parking garage.

daddy - I remember you mentioned the information that might be gleaned from the key card!

Clarice Feldman

Where is that from? mom to 2?


Tom Bowler you are in NH,correct? I just read that Shea-Porter won't run for Congress next year. The Republicans should have an easy time picking up that seat.


Tom B, my impression was teachers collected unemployment checks all summer. I don't track the numbers anymore (not since the 80s). I tend to ignore it all until after the adjustments (usually 3 more reporting periods?). Have reduced regulations hit yet? The big three haven't: ACA repeal, Dodd Frank repeal, tax reform (better be cuts).

Our Chitown friend does track them. Just passing along another view of it all.

That must drive the moonbats crazy. I hope so, anyway.


John Kelly's personal cellphone was compromised, White House believes

White House tech support discovered the suspected breach after Kelly turned his phone in to tech support staff this summer.

White House officials believe that chief of staff John Kelly's personal cellphone was compromised, potentially as long ago as December, according to three U.S. government officials.

The discovery raises concerns that hackers or foreign governments may have had access to data on Kelly's phone while he was secretary of Homeland Security and after he joined the West Wing.


Clarice - NBC (I posted link)

The charger could have been left by previous guest.

Not sure about the card/car explanation.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Or, this means they are using Kelly's phone for an excuse for data breaches due to the Awan brothers, since these are "government officials."


If a statement by the sheriff privy to evidence we haven't seen isn't foundation enough for reasonable speculation, I don't know what is.

Posted by: Threadkiller | October 06, 2017 at 10:35 AM


It's not good policy, I don't think, to presume weariness or incompetence or anything else in a situation like this, especially in a locale such as this that regularly has to deal with real criminal elements.

The Sheriff in a top-tier destination resort city in a major investigation? For now, everything the Sheriff says needs to be carefully considered.

Marlene, Correct, I am in NH and delighted to hear that Shea-Porter is done, though I haven't heard anything about who will challenge for the seat. I'm still anticipating another bloodbath for the Democrats regardless of all the negative coverage of Trump.

Henry, Back when I was in college teachers often got part-time jobs in the summer, but that was before education unions were voted in and things have certainly changed since then. My impression now is that teaching is considered a profession with commensurate pay. Anyway, I appreciate your input and perspective.


So I'm totally able to understand the idea of using one's position to get hot young starlets to satisfy one's desires.

But "watch me take a shower?" A fat ugly guy wanting hot young starlets to watch him take a shower?

Imran Awan ‘Very Strongly’ Wants To Block Review Of Hard Drive, Was Using Alias

Lawyers for Imran Awan, an ex-aide who ran information technology (IT) for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, “feel very strongly” that data recovered from a hard drive on Capitol Hill should not be valid as evidence because he put a note that said “attorney client privilege” near it before leaving it in a phone booth, they said in federal court Friday. A police report shows that the backpack contained a laptop with the username “RepDWS,” copy of Imran Awan’s ID, and the notebook.

Is that the first admission that Imran left the laptop?


Locker room talk? In a 1998 Time article, Vernon Jordan happily described "locker room talk" with Bill Clinton - "All we talk about is p***y"

Too bad Romney fangurrrl #1 isn't here for this shocker:





California is becoming a parody.

The law’s effect is limited to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, but mandates that those who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” can be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, according to the California Heath and Safety code.
Known as the “LGBT Senior Bill Of Rights,” the legislation also requires nursing homes and care facilities to allow residents to use the bathroom of their choice, regardless of biological sex.

The second is a hotel record showing that one of Paddock's key cards was used to access his room while his car was outside of the hotel's parking garage.

Occam's razor would tell us that there is Zero chance that Paddock, knowing he had all those guns and tripods and amo laying around in his hotel room, would let anyone use his key card to enter without that individual being someone he totally trusted. If someone used Paddock's key card to enter the room with all that stuff in the room, and it wasn't Paddock, then he had an accomplice.

If it was a maid entering to clean his room that would be by a different key and would probably be recorded as a different electronic signal, and I am positive that Paddock made damn sure he didn't want any "Maid Sevice" while turning his rooms into an Armory.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


So, if Paddock used the card to access his room, where was his car? Was it parked somewhere else other than the garage? Or, was someone else driving it?

Prosecutors revealed that when they arrested Imran at the airport in July as he tried to board a flight to Pakistan, he was carrying a resume with an alias in the Jackson Heights, Queens neighborhood of New York City. Imran may have planned to “relocate” there, seemingly under a different identity, Prosecutors suggested. They said he had wiped his cell phone hours before the arrest, suggesting that he was taking “active measures” to hide evidence.
Clarice Feldman

daddy, is it possible he paid the valet service to move his car .

Clarice Feldman

The story is that he planned to escape the carnage--perhaps he thought getting it out of the hotel garage would make that possible,

“They found a file called ‘.obliterate’,” Marando said of the iPhone Imran was carrying when authorities arrested him at the airport. “It includes the time it was wiped, which was at 6 p.m.,” hours before he was arrested. Imran had just purchased the phone, Gowen said.
