Hey GUS! Sorry I fell asleep on the couch last nite. My guitar question: (Going out to the doctor in two seconds)

I have a Dickens, custom made Spanish guitar (brazilian rosewood)....limited edition...one of 250...i own two.

Want to sell one of them. Can you recommend an online source to either broker a sale or buy it from me outright?

No rush. Wanting to buy a nice electric. Looking for a price in the 3500-4000 range for the Dickens.

Any thoughts?

If this judge really wanted to wash his hands of this, he should have got 20 years. Let the next D Prez commute the sentence. Honestly, with all going on this is the most sickening.

"I've been distracted by our booming economy"


The Economy added 2.36 million over the first 10 months of 2014(Obama)

2.19 million over the first 10 months of 2015(Obama)


1.92 million over the first 10 months of 2016(Obama)


1.68 million over the first 10 months of 2017(Drumpf)


Yet it's the lowest number that Maguire wants to celebrate. Just like a dopey Republican to get excited over diminishing jobs numbers and wage stagnation.

sorry...the Economy added 2.36 million jobs....

matt, deplore me if you must

I am going to say that the judges made a determination and that Bergdahl will have to live with it for the rest of his life. A dishonorable discharge is in itself life changing.

Unless he hooks up with some Dem/Marxist antifa group or something similar, he will not be welcome in most of our society. We all know that he betrayed his oath and his comrades. He is already dead to the military.

The only problem with the election anniversary is that the day before we are likely to reelect Mayor Bane to four more years. Sad!

In the first 10 months of Trump's administration, more jobs were added (1.68 million) than in the first FOUR YEARS of Obama's maladministration (1.23 million).

From the 'Who didn't know that?' files:

There were rumors about the owner of my favorite dive bar at the lake looking to sell out and retire - and like the Remington guy, I bought the company. Heh.

Anyhoo, when I was for the first time headed out of the office door earlier this week, there was a huge sign taped to the back informing its viewers that sexual harassment is illegal. Thankfully I've already banged the snot out of the two bartenders who were on my radar, so I got that out of the way. Kinda like a pre-nup, I guess. :)

There's a spate of nuanced examinations of uber-liberal Reed College in Leftie articles similar to the one Appalled linked to yesterday. Starting to get religion, I imagine.
https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2017/11/the-surprising-revolt-at-reed/544682/
When a few professors get into a heated exchange with RAR leaders, an African American freshman in the front row stands up and raises his arms: “This is a classroom! This is not the place! Right now we are trying to learn! We’re the freshman students!” The room erupts with applause.

I caught up with that student, whose name is Pax. “This is a weird year to be a freshman,” he sighed. Pax is very mild-mannered, so I asked what made him snap into action that morning. “It felt like both sides [RAR and faculty] weren’t paying attention to the freshmen class, as it being our class,” he replied. “They started yelling over the freshmen. It was very much like we weren’t people to them—that we were just a body to use.”

JimNorCal

Heh.
https://www.thecollegefix.com/post/38511/
The aggressive sit-in has resulted in the finance office being closed for three days and prompted officials to quickly relocate sensitive financial documents so they could not be absconded with.

Student protesters have been occupying Reed College’s administrative building, Eliot Hall, for about 10 days demanding the university cut ties with Wells Fargo.

Who the hell can even follow those threads? It looks like a bunch of line noise with stupid Jap cartoons mixed in.

derwill

One thing occurred to me while catching up yesterday . . .

The players in the Dems' three scandals are all interconnected and overlapping--the Podestas and Hillary, Fusion and the dirty Russian dossier, the failed Russian sting against Trump, involving Papadopolous, Uranium One and the Russian bribe, Holder and Lynch and Obama's wiretapping maybe using the dirty Russian dossier, Comey's FBI paying for the Russian dossier, Comey covering for Clinton over the email scandal, FBI's cover-up of the investigations into both Uranium One and the Russian bribery and spying and Manafort's activities at the direction of Holder, Manafort was working for the Podesta Group during the Uranium One scandal. All interconnected with the same players involved across the board.

So who got indicted? Manafort and Papdopolous--who were players, at least in part, with the Dem scandals. Maybe their arrest wasn't to get them to flip on Trump. Maybe it was to flip on the Podestas. And the Podestas are involved all over the place with the all the Dem scandals.

In any event IF Manafort is the lever, and IF Mueller is investigating the Podesta Group and the other related Dem scandals, it is way too soon for indictments.

The Infamous Ignatz

From the last thread;

If the Clintons or Soros is indicted for any reason, can the DOJ seize the money that is under the control of the two foundations?

Civil asset forfeiture, I believe, does not require a person be criminally indicted. That is the original purpose of it; to seize assets from those beyond the reach of the criminal law.
The gov seizes assets and files a complaint maintaining the assets are the proceeds of criminal activity or were used in criminal activity. The asset owner may then answer, at which point there is a hearing where the government must show by the preponderance of the evidence their claim is true and the asset owner can present evidence to the contrary.

Note, I am merely describing the process, not endorsing it nor denying there are grave abuses.

h/t:Instapundit:
JUDICIAL WATCH: New Documents Show FBI Deputy Director McCabe Did Not Recuse Himself from the Clinton Email Scandal Investigation until Week Before Presidential Election.

The news that Clinton used a private email server broke March 2, 2015. Five days later, former Clinton Foundation board member and Democrat party fundraiser, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe met with the McCabes to recruit her for a run for the state Senate. She announced her candidacy on March 12. Soon afterward, McAuliffe-aligned political groups donated nearly $700,000 (40% of the campaign’s total funds) to McCabe’s wife for her campaign. Around that time, Gov. McAuliffe would also come under criminal investigation by the FBI.

An April 29, 2015, document titled “Protocol regarding Potential Conflicts of Interest” sent from the Washington Field Office to various FBI officials – and self-approved by McCabe – indicates that he was “consulting with individuals within the Washington Field Office and [FBI headquarters]” prior to the announcement of his wife’s political campaign:

In March 2015, Dr. Jill McCabe announced her candidacy for Virginia State Senate. Dr. McCabe is the wife of Washington Field Office ADIC Andrew McCabe. Prior to Dr. McCabe’s official announcement, the [assistant director] consulted with individuals within [Washington Field Office] and [FBI headquarters] to identify limitations on his participation in her campaign and to identify areas where Dr. McCabe’s campaign may present potential conflicts of interest for the ADIC in WFO investigations and operations. [Emphasis added]

While this same document advises against McCabe’s involvement in “all public corruption investigations” concerning the state of Virginia during the campaign, no restrictions are advised in his involvement in Virginia cases following the campaign or his involvement with the Clinton email investigation. Also, it advises with respect to other conflicts of interest the Washington Field Office “will assess all other matters on a case-by-case basis,” and provide a “protocol” for their examination, which would be reviewed by a subordinate of McCabe’s, the Chief Division Counsel.

“The FBI is compromised. Mr. McCabe should have been nowhere near the Hillary Clinton investigations,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “That he saw fit to recuse himself only days before the election further demonstrates the FBI’s Clinton email investigation was a sham. No wonder it took a year and a federal lawsuit to get these records. It is well past time for the Justice Department to reopen the Clinton email investigation.”

The reason I asked the civil asset forfeiture question was because even if Hillary or George Soros was to get indicted I doubt either of them would ever get convicted in the state of New York because you know good and well there will be at least one Democrat on the jury who would ignore all the evidence and vote for acquittal.

I was just curious if this was a way to punish the Clintons/Soros for years of quid pro quo corruption without having to get a conviction.
