"The vote Thursday morning on releasing the memo to lawmakers was along party lines, with Democrats voting against making it available for all members.

The process for releasing it to the public involves a committee vote, a source said. If approved, it could be released as long as there are no objections from the White House within five days."...

McCain Associate Who Handled Dossier Asks Judge To Seal Deposition
An associate of Arizona Sen. John McCain’s who handled the dossier is asking a federal judge to block the release of a videotape and transcript of a deposition he recently gave in a lawsuit related to the salacious document.

David Kramer, a former State Department official and former director at the McCain Institute for International Leadership, filed a motion in federal court in Florida asking a judge for a protective order to block the public release of his deposition.

OT

Re: magnesium and a fib:
My super duper smart vice chief of the Dept. Of Internal Medicine at UM, Dr. Faith Fitzgerald, was preaching the crucial importance of magnesium to us forty years ago!

As noted here---every single cell in our bodies needs it, especially nerves and muscles, and it may well be in short supply with farmed out soils and inadequate intake of magnesium rich foods.

Because magnesium is an INTRACELLULAR electrolyte, the blood level is ALWAYS a very small number, so to get that little number to be below "normal," LOTS is already missing from the inside of cells. And I do believe you can be very low intracellularly--have cramps, arrhthymias---with a low "normal" magnesium.

Supplementation makes sense if you have reason to suspect you suffer from ailments related to low magnesium.

Stephanie Nene Not your normal Grandma

If we have a government shutdown, who gets to decide if the Mueller investigation is 'non-essential?'

It most certainly is non-essential.

:)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

anonamom,

I have a friend who reads JOOM but doesn't want to post. We were discussing magnesium today since it's been discussed here.

She was prescribed it for fibromyalgia but discovered about a month ago that she had only been taking half of the dose she should have been so she doubled what she was taking.

She has noticed sleeping better and vivid dreams, which she remembers.

I started taking a vitamin-mineral supplement before Christmas and have noticed the same thing, although not as much as her. I am going to go get some magnesium once I can get out to a pharmacy.

I have been following the magnesium, cramps, afib discussion because I have the latter two. During enthusiastic biking my heart rate will suddenly rise to 220 per the hrm. It could sometimes take 30-40 minutes for heart rate to return normal. I've gotten better at catching the onset and if I stop and rest the heart rate will drop back in less than 5 minutes. Went for a heart ultrasound but nothing found. Leg and for cramps at night more annoying than alarming. I will up my mag in addition to potassium. The heart ultrasound did put me on the FAA's radar and the wanted the full report before renewing my 3rd class.

Miss Marple, for reference, the product I use is from Trace Minerals Research. A blue bottle about the size of a large nosedrops bottle. It has a graduated dropper and 1ml contains 100mg of magnesium.

I've eased my way up to 300mg a day, taken in a vitamin drink, which seems to be doing it for me.

'We will prosecute' employers who help immigration sweeps, California AG says

The state's top cop issued a warning to California employers Thursday that businesses face legal repercussions, including fines up to $10,000, if they assist federal immigration authorities with a potential widespread immigration crackdown.

"It's important, given these rumors that are out there, to let people know - more specifically today, employers - that if they voluntarily start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office," state Attorney General Xavier Becerra said at a news conference. "We will prosecute those who violate the law."

This seems an opportunity to turn the federal court system back on the lefties who have misused the court system for too long.

Immigration falls under federal purview, and state law doesn’t protect them. The courts could demand compliance, find officials in contempt, and strip them from office.

They really should not be using Democrats Orville Faubus and Bull Connor as role models.

Supplementation makes sense if you have reason to suspect you suffer from ailments related to low magnesium.

Or if you've had a blood test and been told that officially.

Typical Sundance. Making something out of the ordinary. Can't believe anything the Cape Coral Con Artist writes anymore. How many wives is he on now 4? Does he still write bad checks?

The guy has a history and its not exactly one that provides confidence in anything he writes.

daddy

Lou Dobbs in his opening 10 minutes giving Martha McSally (R-Arizona, and candidate for Jeff Flake's senate Seat) a platform to push her views on DACA and the continuing resolution and funding the Military and all the rest. To this LIV voter she is very impressive and comes across as a stronger speaker and personality than Kelli Ward whom I watched on another TV Show yesterday. I would be happy with either of them over any Dem, but currently, from motivational performance, I prefer McSally. Just tossing this out there for comment.

Late to the threads but Lou Dobb's in segment one on the abuse in the still held secret info on the FISA documents, plays clips of a Repub Congressman saying that if they see these 4 page documents they will immediately call for the firing of Rod Rosenstein.

Word of what is in that report must be being talked about, even though it hasn't been published yet.

Clarice Feldman

Sara Carter: A Bombshell House Intelligence report exposing extensive FISA abuse could lead to the removal of senior government officials.
A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated.
These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.
The document also apparently outlines “several problematic” issues with how FISA warrants were “packaged, and used” state several sources with knowledge of the report.
Over the past year, whistleblowers in the law enforcement and intelligence community have revealed to Congress what they believe to be extensive abuse with regard to FISA surveillance, as previously reported.
But the government official, who viewed the document said “it will be tough for a lot of people to see this and especially the media, which has been attempting to deemphasize the dossier. It’s going to punch a hole in their collusion narrative.”

So, what is the over/under on the release of the HIC report?

I am going 2/6 (days). Ryan has to be careful here since it is NatSec and he doesn't want to be political. (That is the way he is).

Maybe tomorrow to make the Sunday talk fests.

If its as bad as suggested then the Dems will have to find better places to hide.
