BS.
Momentary blips in homicides may be local but the huge downward trend over the last thirty years has been universal and has been almost entirely produced by different policing and incarceration techniques nationwide.
If deepening poverty caused crime to spike then the decline would have reversed in recessions. It didn't.
End "mass incarceration" and watch those trends reverse, which will be great for the criminals; not so great for their victims.
But progs love brown people. They love them to death.

I remember a map showing DC homicides for a year decades ago. Yuge concentration in 2-3 very small neighborhoods. Maybe 1 in NW.

From InstaPundit.

"The woman Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee accused of racism is a celebrated photojournalist who helped document human-rights abuses in war-torn Guatemala during the 1980s.

Jean-Marie Simon, whose first-class seat on a United Airlines flight was given to Ms. Jackson Lee, Texas Democrat, lived and worked in Guatemala during the turbulent decade that saw the military seize control of the government in a coup. Hundreds of thousands of Guatemalans were killed or “disappeared” during the conflict. ... In a tweet Tuesday, Ms. Jackson Lee suggested Ms. Simon was upset about her seat being given away because it was given to an African-American woman.”

Malia Obama, rebel?

Per usual, I'm only as good as my sources, but my sources say: Malia, who plans to be an English Literature major, is outspoken in English classes against political correctness! She defends the canon, and when asked to assume a character for an essay, chose that of an Irish man (dear God, not Duda, one hopes!). Anyway, only as good as my mysterious sources!

From MM's link:

However, to best understand the DOJ side, it’s helpful to look at a specific time, September and October 2016. That’s when the second FISA application was presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), using the information from the FBI counterintelligence operation (Steele Dossier etc.) as the basis for that application.

How do we know that?

 narcisoyea

Yes that is a very good piece, miss marple I didn't know about this Evans character he's new to my understanding

Extraneus

Later he says this:

Summary of October 2016 so far: ♦Bruce Ohr is meeting with Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson and not telling his bosses. ♦The DOJ National Security Division submits FISA application for FBI use (likely using dossier).

In other words, he doesn't know if the dossier was used and neither do we. (I'd bet Trump knows, though.)

DebinGA

I noticed Steele's first dossier memo referred to the golden showers fiction in the presidential suite of the Moscow Ritz Carlton. Steele noted the Obamas had stayed there, and after the words "Michelle Obama" Steele added "who he hated" - "he" being Trump. What an obvious crock. Impossible to believe anyone in the DOJ fell for the "dossier", much less the FBI Director and the AG who had to sign any FISA application that referenced it.

Rep. Charlie Dent says President Trump a factor in decision to retire

“I’d say the president was a factor but not the factor for me deciding to leave,” Mr. Dent, Pennsylvania Republican, said on CNN. “I’ve been thinking about leaving Congress since 2013, ever since the government shutdown. I really thought it might be time to move on.”

He announced earlier this year that he would not seek another term in 2018 and would return to private life. Mr. Dent said his colleagues are aware of the challenges they face, not only because of Mr. Trump’s unpopularity, but because of the historic challenges for the president’s party in the midterms.

Meanwhile, Drudge is reporting that Trump and Obama had the same polling numbers after year 1.

I don't know Dent, but he seems to be making the right decision.

henry,

My teacher sister's ex-husband was here several years ago to visit his daughter. He was in the Navy, worked for the post office, and then got a job at the National Parks Service. He proudly told me he had qualified as a "triple dipper" (meaning he would draw pensions from all three.

I told him that was NOT the thing to tell someone who had to rely on 401K's in the private sector. Grrr.

The Infamous Ignatz

Given the Carter Page angle, the way they're stonewalling congress and the fact that if they had something else it would have already leaked, it's pretty tough to imagine something besides the dossier as the FISA "evidence".

Extraneus

Agreed, Ig. I just don't like when it's stated as a fact. It's hard enough keeping track of this stuff.

This DailyMail article states that McCain gave Comey the dossier on Dec. 9th but the last section of the dossier is dated Dec. 13th? Why did the FBI add the last section after McCain turned it over? FISA related?

DebinGA

I'm sure when DossierGate broke last year I read this BBC piece but certain things didn't stand out then that stand out now:

"Last April [2016], the CIA director was shown intelligence that worried him. It was - allegedly - a tape recording of a conversation about money from the Kremlin going into the US presidential campaign. ... It was passed to the US by an intelligence agency of one of the Baltic States. The CIA cannot act domestically against American citizens so a joint counter-intelligence taskforce was created. The taskforce included six agencies or departments of government. Dealing with the domestic, US, side of the inquiry, were the FBI, Department of the Treasury, and the Department of Justice. For the foreign and intelligence aspects of the investigation, there were another three agencies: the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the National Security Agency, responsible for electronic spying. ... Lawyers from the National Security Division in the Department of Justice then drew up an application [FISA]. They took it to the secret US court that deals with intelligence, the Fisa court, named after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They wanted permission to intercept the electronic records from two Russian banks. ...Their first application, in June, was rejected outright by the judge. They returned with a more narrowly drawn order in July and were rejected again. Finally, before a new judge, the order was granted, on 15 October, three weeks before election day."

It wasn't just a rogue FBI - 6 agencies were involved. Iirc it's illegal to go to a different judge if the initial judge turns down a FISA application. I wonder if the winning 3rd try was before the 3-judge FISA appeal panel - all Clinton appointees?

Democratic Appointees Reluctant To Give Trump More Judgeships To Fill

One circuit judge claimed Trump’s nominees lack the qualifications necessary for judicial service.

“Given the caliber of nominees I’m seeing, I’m not comfortable creating a spot that might be filled by someone consistent with the qualifications, or lack of qualifications, of some of the folks I’ve seen nominated,” the judge said. The judge is eligible to assume senior status, a quasi-retirement under which aging judges may leave active service but still participate in a handful of cases.

Seems like he should be required to take a remedial English course before they let him do that.

Another circuit judge accused the president of “blatantly politicizing” the courts, as they expressed anxiety about Trump’s agenda.

“This president is someone who I am just so anxious about what he might do and also the quality of some of the nominees, some of whom have now withdrawn,” the judge said. “That makes it a greater concern for me than if it were a different president who happened to be Republican but was making wise decisions with respect to the judiciary and wasn’t so blatantly politicizing it.”

Both judges were appointed by Democratic presidents, according to BuzzFeed News.

All golfers should live so long as to become this kind of old man!

Toward the end of the Sunday service, the Minister asked, "How many of you have forgiven your enemies?"

80% held up their hands. The Minister then repeated his question. All responded this time, except one man, Walter Barnes.

"Mr. Barnes, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?"

"I don't have any," he replied gruffly.

"Mr. Barnes, that is very unusual. How old are you?"

"Ninety-eight," he replied The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.

"Oh, Mr. Barnes, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?"

The old golfer tottered down the aisle, stopped in front of the pulpit, turned around, faced the congregation, and said simply,

"I outlived all them assholes."

Then he calmly returned to his seat.
