Below is a transcript of their conversation:

FBI attorney Page: "Yeah, some extremely offensive video screens set up in front of district. I truly hate these people. No support for the woman who actually has to spend the rest of her life rearing this child, but we care about 'life.' Assholes."

My thoughts and prayers are with the two police officers, their families, and everybody at the @WestervillePD.

This is in response to the announcement that both officers died.


From the Lee Smith Tablet piece Clarice linked on the last thread...

Informed sources in Washington have been whispering for months that Britain’s intelligence service, the Government Communications Headquarters, the U.K.’s version of America’s National Security Agency, was intercepting the emails and phone calls of Trump officials. “It’s not impossible,” a former high-ranking U.S. intelligence officer told me, “that the information came from the Brits. Under certain circumstances, we can search their database, and they can search ours. Our intelligence-sharing relationship with the U.K. is much closer than it is with anyone else, by far the closest we have. But something like that wouldn’t be routine in our relationship.”


The former CIA director has some questions to answer, then. What precisely was his role in initiating the FBI probe into the Trump team’s possible ties to Russia? Will he disclose where the intelligence actually came from? Was it volunteered by one of America’s closest allies, or did U.S. officials request to search allies’ databases for the communications of American citizens? If so, under what authority were American allies being used to help an American intelligence agency spy on a domestic political campaign?

Huh? So no FISA warrant required? "U.S. officials" can just spy on Americans by simply searching British databases?

New Co-Ed curling for this Olympics. Each Olympics they try something different, usually if the host country is really good at it. I don't think the SoKo are that good at curling but who knows.


They have always had mixed curling (I don't know about the Olympics) but these people have only 2 people on the team. Both skip, both sweep every shot, it's very weird.

Why, yes they do, Jack!

dady will attest that it is a true Jewish deli. The guy who founded it, Max Shapiro, passed away a few years ago, and now his kids and grandkids run it. They make their own corned beef and pastrami, have a killer cheesecake, serve matzoh ball soup and potato latkes, and of course, cream soda!

My mother used to eat there when she was attending Butler and frequented downtown. I can remember her taking us there when we were little. I distinctly remember the cream soda!

uuug ... True Pundit.

the reporting on the trump tower meeting always makes my teeth itch ... there was a single Russian in the room, the Typhoid Natahsa lawyer ... her translator was an American, another lobbyist is a nationalized American from some vaguely Slavic decent, and I'm forgetting the 4th person there when she starting prattling on about adoptions of Russian kids

... I also thought she was given an immigration amnesty (not a visa) because she represented, in some vague way, Katsyv (some other Russian dude who has run afoul of US law) in a New York case. Why her immigration amnesty was so overly broad that she could go to Trump Tower (the meeting), show up for a screening of an anti-Magnitsky film at the Newsuem, and show up at a Congressional hearing on the Magnistsky sanctions is anyone's guess.

but here we are.


Interesting, exdem. Thanks for the link.

Here's another article about the worthless Newseum:




An OT Jane Austen sighting!

Current read is The Dinosaur Hunters: A True Story of Scientific Rivalry and the Discovery of the Prehistoric World

Chapter one is the life of Mary Anning, the young fossil hunting girl in south coastal England in Lyme Regis. In the very early 1800's, at about age 11, she started finding ichthyosaur skeletons imbedded in the seaside cliff walls near her home and became expert at digging these things out and passing them on to early Natural History pioneers in London, leading after a few decades to the discovery and early understanding of Dinosaurs!

From Chapter 1:

...In 1792, war erupted in Europe and it became dangerous for the English gentry to travel on the Continent. Many of the well-to-do classes adopted the resorts of the south coast of England. The dramatic scenery around Lyme Bay became a favorite among those who spent part of the season at Bath. In the summer, smart carriages often lined the Parade and the steep narrow streets that nestled into the hillside. The novelist Jane Austen was among those who visited early in the 19th Century. She was charmed by the High Street, 'almost hurrying into the sea', and 'the very beautiful line of cliffs stretching out to the east.' The Cobb curving around the harbor became the dramatic setting for scenes in her new novel "Persuasion." It was here that Louisa Musgrove fell 'lifeless...her eyes closed, her face like death', and was nursed back to health by the romantic sea captain.

Jane Austen's letter to her sister, Casandra, reveal that during her short stay she met an artisan in the town by the name of Richard Anning. He was summoned to value the broken lid of a box and, according to Jane Austen, was a sharp dealer. She told her sister that Anning's estimate, at five shillings, was 'beyond the value of all the furniture in the room together.'

What we then learn was that Richard Anning, a poor carpenter, was the father of Mary Anning. But then we learn that Mary Anning died horribly at age 4 from being left alone in a room with a fireplace and her clothes catching on fire. Ughh and awful, but then shortly after the Anning's have another baby girl so naturally they name her Mary as well. That's the one that became the famous fossil hunter. The book says her life was also touch and go in that at age 2 there was a festival just out of town everyone attended, young Mary being carried by a nurse.

...Then, in the words of the local schoolmaster, George Robert's: 'a vivid discharge of electrical fluid ensued, followed by the most awful clap of thunder that any present ever remembered hearing, which re-echoed around the fine cliffs of Lyme Bay. All appeared deafened by the crash. After a momentary pause a man gave the alarm by pointing to a group that lay motionless under a tree.'

There were 3 dead women, among them Mary's nurse, Elizabeth, whose hair, arm and cap along the right side were 'much burnt and the flesh wounded.' She was still holding the baby, who was insensible and could not be roused. The second Mary Anning, known to be 'dear to her parents,' was carried back to Lyme, 'in appearance dead.' But when bathed in hot water, gradually she was revived, to the 'joyful exclamations of the assembled crowd.' According to the family, this was a turning point for the young Mary Anning: 'She had been a dull child before but after this accident she became lively and intelligent.'

The rest of chapter is as fascinating as it details her discoveries of various ancient sea-monsters, and her selling them to the London Naturalists is the only thing that keeps the family out of the Poor House for the next few decades, since her father dies and the rest of her siblings but 1 all succumb to disease and poverty.

Here's Mary and her Ichthyosaur!

Apologies for the long OT:)

Mary Anning is well-known to me from an early age, as there is a chapter on her in "All About Dnosaurs" by Roy Chapman Andrews, which was a selection of the Weekly Reader Book Club, back in the day when it had worthwhile books.

I happen to have a copy, which was a gift from my oldest granddaughter, who remembered me telling her that it was the book that set me on my geology degree.

Yes, it seems in character for loyalist Preet Bharara* to have granted Veselnitskaya a really special visa which AG Lynch ordered. Now who told her to do that? Was it *after* Clinton on the tarmac with Lynch?

So enjoyed that excerpt, daddy - this was so interesting:

'She had been a dull child before but after this accident she became lively and intelligent.'

Are they implying it was some ancient/natural form of electric shock therapy?


Did she get struck by lightening?

#MeToo enters a new phase.

Mystery woman appears at hotel door of Republican lawmaker in suspected entrapment attempt

[Utah] Republican state Sen. Evan Vickers told media he was preparing to leave his room at the Little America on Thursday night when the woman appeared, KSTU-TV reported.

“I opened the door and there was a young lady standing there and she said ‘Hi,’ and I said, ‘Hi, who are you?’ And she said, ‘I’m your date.’ I said, ‘No, you’re not.’ She said, ‘Yes, I’m your date,'” KSTU reported.

The woman refused to leave and kept repeating that she was Vickers’ date.

“She was standing in front of the elevator and I said, ‘I don’t know who you are and what you’re doing here,’ and she said, ‘No, you don’t understand. I’m your date.’ I said, ‘No I’m not and walked back into the room,'” he told KSTU.

Vickers returned to the room, locked the door, and asked a legislative colleague to escort him out of the hotel. The woman left, and he was left wondering what she was trying to accomplish.

Hotel security is reviewing security video footage and police are also investigating, the report states.

iirc, and my memory is fuzzy on this point, is that the Tarmac Meeting was late June 2016 (June 27th?) and Typhoid Natasha was roaming around nattering on about adoptions June (NYC) and July (WDC) ... not sure when she left.

seems a lock that she will appear prominently in one or more of the rejected FISA applications.

Since the meeting was set up by an English subject seems a lock that the GHCQ could have started vacuuming up the crumbs Goldstone (one of the people in the meeting and weirdo and a Jabb the Hutt look-a-like) was leaving ...

... now to go in a completely different direction: iirc during the course of the Hillary private server investigation it was speculated in the media that her server was hacked-what if that was the concern-investigations had good reason to believe that it was and all the contents downloaded. We know now that Obama, using an alias, emailed her. Whoever had the full archive had all the contents of the emails, dirt on the Clinton Foundation, and a whole roster of alias addresses of Obama administration officials (including Obama himself) ...

Second WH Staffer Accused Of Domestic Abuse Fires Back: It Was My Ex-Wife Who Abused Me

Just to be clear, we’re talking here about David Sorensen, not Rob Porter. Sorensen is, or was, a speechwriter in Stephen Miller’s office. He quit yesterday when word got around that WaPo was planning a story based on his ex-wife’s tales of spousal abuse. Like Porter, Sorensen claims he’s innocent. Unlike Porter, he claims that he, not his ex, was the one getting knocked about. And he’s published a statement online, featuring photos and screenshots of texts, to support his story.

Gotta watch short track for men coming up next.


This is more common than most men will admit.

Another voice in the CA wilderness: Susan Shelley -

Trump offers not fear, but an America of our own choosing
If the course of our lives is determined by our race, gender, ethnicity, religion, or some other characteristic not of our own choosing, then no matter what we do, we cannot change our destiny. If that's the way it is, we are essentially all victims, and the government's offer of protection is very attractive.
But if we have volition, the power to make our won choices and steer our own course, then what we need is not more government, but more freedom.

What frauds and charlatans! Epater les bourgeoisie indeed! The 70s were a bad time to be a teenager. I was at least reading NR and a lot of other things--knowing about other times and places helps a lot in understanding one's own--a platitude but so really true and re-learned I think with older people all the time.

I would've missed the Andy McCarthy article you posted last thread in my hasty ketchup antics.

I'm not sure what Andy's future holds, meaning what positions he'll take in his lawyerly fashion. Can't say. Don't care.

However, I sent that article to my Paw in Virginny where he and his NPR loving wife sit every morning and get their heads pumped full of bilge by the "intellectual sounding" lip smacking commentators with the faux high brow music station.

Paw and I have a very beautiful relationship. We speak of goings on in DC, Califas, and Virginny sparingly by the code: your political views are none of my business. It works. What it does is that it keeps me from ranting about the enemies within and him from cracking endless "pendejo" jokes about POTUS (whom he knows NADA about.)

All this to say, is that he has a keen respect for EVIDENCE when it's put in front of him. God Bless Paw as he is 85 years old and reads a 12 page local paper down in Lynchburgh.

So, the Andy McCarthy article is on its way to him with the email subject line: Follow the evidence.

Paw is still sharp as a tack and near photographic memory. I think, if i know him, the article is going to turn him from the Happy Valley NPR Democrat klatch. Not only that, he knows quite a few Sons of Virginia. And they talk. They do not love the federal government although Paw is Korean war vet and former FAA executive (80s). These other guys are railroad pensioners mostly. They even make their own guns.

All this to say: You have set in motion a ripple effect into very wide pond in Southern Virginia where people tend to mistrust Republicans and somehow know nothing of the "lesser of two evils" and what that was metastisizing into with Her Majesty.

Thank you. I feel like General Kutuzov in "War and Peace". He was being pressured to attack Napoleon while the French were trapped in Moscow. But he waited and it appeared he was doing nothing. "Attack? Now? And have the army completely destroyed?!!!!"

Kutuzov waited until the impatient and angry Napoleon decided to retreat---- and the rest is history.

This is comparable. And it's been a battle of lawyers which will continue. High time that McCarthy (an influencer) calls this treachery out as the vainglorious transgression he thought he'd never see.

Thanks, Clarice.

Sorenson worked for Gov. LePage before going to DC to work for Trump. The Maine media is having a field day about the accusations. Sorenson and his ex- wife were known in Maine political circles. His ex-wife was a bridesmaid at LePage's daughter's wedding. The only thing Lepage gets any credit for is his strong support for domestic violence victims,because of his own childhood experience. According to media reports in Maine that I've read, LePage's circle and other Republicans didn't have a clue about Sorenson.



Got a chuckle out of your Chreokee wanna be article. I was pretty skeptical when my cousin Lisa brought all this up.
