Bringing this over from a dying thread...On F&F this morning, they had a graph up of how much time was spent by ABC, NBC and CBS on the 50,000 missing texts. Zero. Zilch. Nada. None of the major 3 networks mentioned the missing texts.

Sue

I personally think enough people were aware that our military was not getting paid because of Dreamers.

Someone pointed out earlier somewhere, I forget where, that illegals are Dreamers and I, others like me, or Deplorables. Odd times we live in.

Sue

I do not support granting citizenship to Dreamers. A green card with the ability to apply for citizenship but not amnesty.

I would like to thank the Dreaming Shitholdovers for their lice contributions to my daughter's school.

They did a job to her thick long blonde hair that an American wouldn't do.

We discovered it this morning.

You're deplorable because you're privileged, Sue.
Here's the thing I don't get, but I'm pretty sure progs will be taking it up pretty soon, if not already;
who is more privileged than smart people?
A smart black guy has about 1,000 times better chance of making it than some white imbecile, unless the white imbecile becomes a journalist or politician.

Isn't it time morons of the world unite? They have nothing to lose but their brains, and that's no great loss anyway.

Sue,

I agree with you. Green card with citizenship only after classes and English language learning.

As an evidence of how immigration is changing things, here is a fourth grade classroom in the township my grandkids attended.

Those kids with olive skin and thick black hair are either Hispanic or Chin (refugee group from Southeast Asia.)

Costs the schools for translators, English language instructors, and social workers. Bori has a comment from the end of the last thread I will bring over if Bori doesn't do so.

I just don't see the long term viability of Netflix's business model. As more studios do their own Netflix thing and withhold content from Netflix, it can't keep paying $100 million for its own content based on subscriber fees.

Netflix brings in more than $600,000 million a MONTH in subscriber fees and is no longer seen as a repository of second run shows from other sources... Producing dozens of movies annually, and even more original series. Waaaaay ahead of the curve.

I heard Gowdy talking on Fox about half an hour ago, and he was frothing at themouth about texts from the lovebirds which not only talked about the "secret society", but displayed animosity towards the Trump CHILDREN and went on to hope for the failure of his businesses.

That, to me, indicates fanatical politicization and people should be fired and put into custody.

My suggestion is to form a completely new federal investigative bureau, taking the best from the FBI and discarding the rest. Keep the lab technicians and people like that, but all agents need a complete and thorough background check including known associates, finances, and computer/phone records. First year hires are on probation.

I am just gobsmacked at this.

I notice Strzok's wife is an attorney/Asst.Director of some unit at the Securities and Exchange Commission. I'm sure people there know her connection to Strzok, but she seems to have wisely used her maiden name since arriving there in 2008 and perhaps her entire professional life.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

Erickson is one of the most annoying of the Never Trumpers to me. I am convinced he followed that group simply because he thought it would be more financially advantageous to him. Shows you what a dim bulb he is.

At one point, before Trump announced, back when we weren't as wise about pundits, he even got to guest host on Rush. (So did Chris Matthews, if I recall corrrectly.)

--Keep the lab technicians and people like that...--

OK, but there has been at last one major scandal involving the FBI labs as well.

I have noticed that the spouses of these people always seem to work in federal agencies or for government contractors.

You never see any of them listed as schoolteachers, pharmaceutical reps, or department store or boutique managers.

In that case, scrap the lab people as well. I am done being patient with the entire organization.

---Don't overreact. My older daughter, the physical therapist, started out with an Anthropology degree.

Now the way i look at it is that we here at JOM have tons of Econ Majors, and History Majors, and Engineering Majors (computer, mechanical, electrical, chemical, math, and aerospace) Journalism Majors, English Majors, Library Science Majors, Classic Studies Majors, Geology Majors, pre-Med and Medschool Majors, Music Majors and Graphic Design Majors, but only one guy here was willing to take on the exceptionally challenging Major of Comparative World Religions.

Bringing over from the last thread:

In Re all the discussion about the worth of certain majors and/or their lack of value in today's job market: Read the link. LOL. Even at Harvard they have certain courses available to pad your GPA. This one is now dead but "Hebrew Bible" was evidently the go-to course for that.

I remember back in the day at UC, there was an Art History course that everyone turned to to elevate their GPA.

DebinGA

Strzok's wife began working at the SAEC in 2008, but she was appointed to her present high level position in Oct. 2016, which at least suggests her promotion was a reward for her hubs stellar work on HC's behalf.

http://offendedamerica.com/exclusive-imran-awan-top-democrat-staffer-day-hezbollah-money-launderer-night/

I am unfamiliar with this site, but the guy seems to have done a good job of piecing together pieces of information from Politico, the Daily Caller, etc.

This paragraph stood out for me:

"Evidence is mounting that Awan was one spoke in the wheel of Hezbollah’s massive terror network. If indeed this is the case, it raises serious questions about how Awan was able to participate in felony money-laundering and bank fraud right under the noses of congressional democrats, who paid him more than $7 million for IT services. FBI investigators are currently trying to figure out how this happened, and how counter-intelligence agents didn’t discover it sooner."

Maybe those "counter-intelligence agents" were too busy texting each other about how much they hated Trump and his family.

Out of concern for his legal future, FBI Agent Peter Strzok hired David Boies, Esq., chairman of Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP. Do you know who else Boies previously represented? None other than Harvey Weinstein!

Deb,

Or, it could have been a pay-off tokeep quiet about the Awan brothers and their money-laundering for Hezbollah! (See my previous post!)

DebinGA,

A perfect realization of The Swamp and how it works. To drain it will take more than 64 miles (circumference of the beltway) of dewatering-wellpoints. That is why I want the memo released, the forensic discovery of the missing texts and a high quantity of public frog-marches as a good start.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Boies was hired to make sure all of the stories are kept straight.

This is getting really good!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

At this point, it seems to me that we have to believe that quite a few people in DC in BOTH PARTIES knew a lot of stuff, either through being participants, gossip, or being blackmailed by various agencies.

I think a lot of people are goig to end up in jail or at the least, leaving government in disgrace.

It is really easy to see why they were determined to keep Trump from winning, and now to understand the level of panic they are demonstrating.

Time to call out Michael Wolff and his fabricated bullshit! I had dinner with the president a few weeks ago and he was in fine form. He was optimistic, engaged, on top of the world, loving the job. And already talking about his 2020 re-election run!!

This is interesting. I had thought Drudge had gone to the Dark Side, given his tweets I have seen. So, how did this remain out of the public eye?

Pretty interesting. I wonder who else was at the dinner.

Shock poll: Americans want massive cuts to legal immigration

Well remember TM, we used to think the poll question "Is the Pope Catholic?" wasn't a Shock Poll, but it is nowadays. Thankfully though we can still count on bears to shit in the woods, except in King Cove Alaska, where, because of Trump and the planet destroying Ryan Zinke, they will now shit on an environmentally dangerous, Eco-Killing, Gaia murdering, 12 mile stretch of gravel roads.

FWIF, have had the most cherished seat here at my cafe catty-corner across from Notre Dame Cathedral now for about 4 hours.

Erickson is one of the most annoying of the Never Trumpers to me. I am convinced he followed that group simply because he thought it would be more financially advantageous to him

Iirc he was dropped from the Kristolnacht cruises, probably because the ship's larders were being depleted faster than ever seen before.

Thomas Collins

From the Columbia Journalism Review piece:

"The idea then was that it was time to take the story back; to not let Trump, and his acolytes, control the conversation. That was going to be our job. We were going to decide what mattered, how our audience spent their time. In the months since, Trump has done his thing, taunting and lying and promising lawsuits and legislation and more threats. We, unfortunately, have failed to hold up our end of the bargain."

Gee, silly me. I thought the job of journalists was to get the who, what, when, where and how correct, and then and only then, to venture modestly into the why (but not letting their views on the why affect the who what when where and how reporting). I didn't think journalists should view their task as deciding how readers should spend their time.

daddy,

I wish we could all be together somewhere watching all of this stuff in DC unfold while drinking good beer and eating Shapiro's corned beef.

Guess who resurfced on Fox? Julian the Clintonista, the guy who used to wear lip glass when appearing defending Bill Clinton!

I haven't seen him in years! I notice the Obamabots are missing in action, so they had to pull someone out of the third string.

He was still trying to blame Rubio for the dossier!

Just watched 2 Gendarmes on horseback cross the bridge just in front of the Cathedral and my restaurant. As they passed I noticed both gendarmes were women and both had holstered sidearms. Cool. A night turning gorgeous in this City of Light's, and none more wonderful than the lighting on the Cathedral itself as the twilight continues.

As mentioned many times previously, where I sit on the Left Bank, just 200 yards from the Cathedral, is also within 300 yards of central Police Headquarters, and so far today/tonight have only heard two occassions of the sirens blaring and the police vehicles hustling thru the streetlights with sirens blaring. The Police presence tonight is very reduced and invisible from normal touristy times, so maybe terrorists don't like lousy weather.

Scott at PowerLine quotes Horowitz's memo to Grassley and Johnson:

Following our review of those text messages, the OIG expanded our request to the FBI to include all text messages between Strzok and Page through the date of the document request, which was July 28, 2017. The OIG received these additional messages on August 10, 2017.

According to the Department of Justice cover letter sent to Senator Johnson last week, however, the FBI did not preserve text messages between Strzok and Page between approximately December 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017. See Senator Johnson’s letter dated January 20, 2018, to FBI Director Wray that I posted here yesterday.

Horowitz’s letter, however, seems to indicate that he has in hand messages that include the period of “lost” or unpreserved messages. Whatever he has, it is crucial evidence.

...

I haven’t seen this element of the story addressed anywhere and wanted to bring it to the attention of readers.

Maybe he should start reading the JOM comments.

I lived through their raving lunatic anti-American, pro-bin Laden, anti-Israel broadcasts during and after 911.

Toobin downplays the texts on CNN:

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/23/toobin-lost-strzok-texts/

Host Poppy Harlow put several text messages between Strzok and Page on the screen that discussed the 2016 presidential election and disparaged then-candidate Donald Trump.

“So what? What does that tell you?” Toobin asked, shrugging off the controversy. “I mean, yes, the fact that this investigation was going on in the middle of a presidential campaign, everybody knew that. Obviously, they had to resolve it. This idea that FBI agents can’t acknowledge what’s going on in the real world. I read those text messages and I think, so what?”

Extraneus
“Let’s see. There can be an investigation of why these text messages disappeared. We all worked in big bureaucracies, Stuff gets lost. It happens in law enforcement,” Toobin said. “If there was someone who got rid of these text messages for some sinister reason, that we should know. If they disappeared just in the normal course of business, we should know that, too.
