For all the play the brother/sister curlers got, they just don't seem very good. Surely there are other American curlers worth some coverage, no?

"The process also lends impartiality: people criticized in an I.G. report are allowed to review the document in advance and to submit a rebuttal, which should have a disciplining effect on Horowitz’s analysis."

Quoted from: https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/02/washington-braces-fbi-bombshell-nunes-inspector-general

Don't bother to read the article - it's Vanity Fair, after all, but is this true? That if you're named in an IG report, you get to contest it? If so, a lot of people must know what has been found out about them and know what's coming. Right?

Can somebody confirm this?

Does this mean that people in trouble already know they're in trouble?

I had never considered this.

rich

probably talking to myself at this point.

so any thoughts about my earlier comment that something is missing?

-intentionally conflating the Hillary private server and the DNC ex-fil (not a hack)

-the setup Trump Tower meeting

-the Trump Tower server story (mostly forgotten at this point)

-Five Eyes involvment

One reason I like "Busload" so much because the drums are about my limit for pounding something out and stayin on beat.

IMNAL ...but yes they would.

1. Civil service protections would afford the opportunity to those named to make their case.

2. The civil servant has a property interest to his job, therefore, a due process right to the job.

the JOM bar can expound this further. the lawyers caught in the IG probe could get disbarred as a professional sanction though, and it seems it would be unpleasant to get hauled into congressional hearings ...

hell the story wants to move to September/October 2016 but really looks to have started back at least by March 2016 ...

... the FBI found credible evidence the Hillary setup was hacked which would blow up their cover up operation???

... they concoct an out for charges but don't have a good idea where the ex-filed files went???

(...something I was thinking about is when the FBI announces a terrorist attack has no foreign involvement, the group behind it releases a video proving them wrong ... suspect that is coming)

... the election timing???

... anyway.

That seems right rich, but would all those protections apply *before* the official report accusing wrongdoing is released? Or only prior to a job action being taken?

Another Bob

What are you bothered by rich? That this whole thing is much larger than commonly held?

If so I agree with you.

The FULL COMMIE/MFM has lied so long, so often and so blatantly, that the public/liv's will NEVER know the extent of the crimes. UNLESS WE GO FOR THEIR THROATS.

Rich,

I think a lot of stuff is missing intentionally. Will it ever come out? I don't know, but it is possible that some journalists have been reading what we've been reading and are ready to tackle this when they won't be seen as traitors by the rest of the media.

That's the "black swan event" I've been looking for - when the media turns objective. When the narrative becomes too powerful to give shade to the DEMs.. When reporters really want to know what happened, They'll be reviled, they won't win a Pulitzer Prize, but they will be known as the greatest investigative journalists of all time. Forget Woodward and Bernstein. And, if I'm right, there will be fierce competition to keep up with the story.

If not, our favorite conspiracy theorists will be hitting the book market all at the same time.

JimNorCal

Thanks, Dave. That's a gem! The whistling was deliciously understated and completely unexpected.

I would think the protections afforded would allow for those named, and especially those accused of wrongdoing, to prepare a defense before the full report is completed. A notice of investigation of some sort ... MaCabe's "retirement" seems like a data point.

#botheredbysomething

I sure am, Rich, and I'm not sure we'll ever find that elusive fact nagging at us. We've all probably read a snippet of it, among a bigger article.

The thing I can't stand is that they're all thinking we'll never trace it all the way back.

N.B. This comment began deep within the last post and thread while doing catch up, then I couldn't post it due to a "time out" or some such boner. Here goes 2nd try.

Momto2--Breaking radio silence here. Lurker at various periods measured in years. Can't resist response to "Willow is some cute mix of lab, hound, and maybe Rhodesian ridgeback."

That's a wonderful mix, albeit high energy, and quite possibly an aggressive chewer. I'm sure you are aware of the energy part. My Jack is a three year old Ridgeback mix. Very affectionate. One of his favorite places is sprawled across my lap while I'm at the laptop on the kitchen table (my work station). When he does that I exclaim, "OH! Jack is back!"

Keep your things secured. Jack has chewed up everything he can get his jaws on...work boots, hiking boots, jogging shoes, dress shoes, slippers, remotes for all devices, polycarbonate lenses...blankets, memory foam mattress pad, you name it. He likes to remove the caps from water bottles...small to large gallon sizes...doesn't care if the bottles are full or empty. He figured out how to let himself in and out of the house within a few days of coming to live with me. Nice, because I don't have to walk him. He walks himself. I'm in the middle of 5 acres of timber land with amenable neighbors, and when he strays, I've discovered the folks who live farther down the lane have met him, and he's welcome down there. He does chase cats, and that can be a problem. Nice to live in such a place. I'm not terribly far from Haslett Basin mentioned awhile back by Kev. I know that area.

Anyhow, enjoy your time with Willow.

An adage I sometimes follow is that it can be better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open my mouth and remove all doubts.

Keep up the lively and informative dialogues.

Resuming radio silence...Ed out.

Jim nj, unfortunately, the current crop of JOURNALISTS......are not professionals, unless being A SHILL is a PROFESSION. The are FULL COMMIE, the transformation had been coming for 35 years, and like HIGH SCHOOL CONDOMS. It's here.
You cannot revert to the TRUTH, when the TRUTH is of no interest to you.
A little of topic, but did you read LISA PAGE'S text about "HATING PRO LIFE PEOPLE"? If not, look it up, she HATES pro lifers, because they don't consider the WOMAN who had to RAISE THE CHILD for the REST OF HER LIFE. So ABORTION is OK, and those who believe KILLING BABIES is WRONG.......are HATED. Her own words.
This is what we are up against. No one caused more of this COARSENING of AMERICAN VALUES, than BILL the RAPIST. No honor = No shame.

can't quite put my finger on it ... had to put on some korn (spike in my veins), smoke a cigarette, a knock back a beer for this ...

... the insistence that nothing is wrong! telling me there are 3 lights when there are 4 lights.

... it reminds me of a drug addict, but not a friend, but family ... and not something trivial, but life and death, quite literally.

explaining away the betrayal-of brotherly love, of family loyalty, of family trust ... for ... a binary choice of Hillary or Donald?

JimNorCal. The RODHAM E-MAILS CASE is obvious.
She deleted 30,000 emails under subpoena. THAT alone is PRISON. They weren't subpoenaed so she could CHOOSE they were DEMANDED. The trail of lies and a whitewash is obvious. Exoneration written months before any interviews or interrogation. Closest aids get to have their lap tops destroyed, and are given immunity in exchange for nothing. PRIVATE SERVER for govt business EXPOSED national govt documents to any 17 year old or foreign enemy. Classified documents sent unsecured. Maid printing classified docs at Rodhams house. Phones smashed to pieces with hammers, server has HARD DRIVE stripped professionally with acid. Lynch and the RAPIST on board Lynch's jet, the week before Comey lets her loose. Call it A MATTER. Strzok changing the terminology of the account of Rodhams criminality. Gross Negligence
becomes EXTREME CARELESSNESS.

I haven't even gotten to RUSSIA/URANIUM 1/CLINTON FOUNDATION CASH FROM FOREIGN GOVTS/or THE RAPIST CASH for RUSSIAN speeches.

joan

you're right about all of this bringing out something ugly -- I feel it sometimes, and I turn away from it because I'll think, 'this is what is driving them, this same rage and hate' and then I'll think, if this drives me to the brink of thinking I'd do anything to them to pay them back for this, is this what they're feeling, because if they are feeling what I'm feeling, we'll never get them to stop.

Wow, ugly.

Sometimes I wonder is this what they've been feeling since Clinton was president and our side went after him? But then I'll think, no, their side hated us before then. Way back before Nixon.

I think basically it's that they are communists--they don't want a society like ours. They want total power.

Given the form, I suspect it wasn't so much the content as the people (message sending really) ... it was only 7 who had their accounts downloaded. If the Russians had rooted the DNC for months they could have dumped an entire archive of hundreds of people, not just 7.

There is a personal story involved with BIG COUNTRY.

jim nj

Why is it that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) allows bundling of cable channels?

From Wiki: "Courts have identified three main factors that must be considered in consumer unfairness cases: (1) whether the practice injures consumers; (2) whether the practice violates established public policy; and (3) whether it is unethical or unscrupulous."

From Wiki again: Tying (informally, product tying) is the practice of selling one product or service as a mandatory addition to the purchase of a different product or service. In legal terms, a tying sale makes the sale of one good (the tying good) to the de facto customer (or de jure customer) conditional on the purchase of a second distinctive good (the tied good). Tying is often illegal when the products are not naturally related.
The basic idea is that consumers are harmed by being forced to buy an undesired good (the tied good) in order to purchase a good they actually want (the tying good), and so would prefer that the goods be sold separately. The company doing this bundling may have a significantly large market share so that it may impose the tie on consumers, despite the forces of market competition. The tie may also harm other companies in the market for the tied good, or who sell only single components.

One effect of tying can be that low quality products achieve a higher market share than would otherwise be the case.

Tying is often used when the supplier makes one product that is critical to many customers. By threatening to withhold that key product unless others are also purchased, the supplier can increase sales of less necessary products.

Certain tying arrangements are illegal in the United States under both the Sherman Antitrust Act,and Section 3 of the Clayton Act. A tying arrangement is defined as "an agreement by a party to sell one product but only on the condition that the buyer also purchases a different (or tied) product, or at least agrees he will not purchase the product from any other supplier." Tying may be the action of several companies as well as the work of just one firm. Success on a tying claim typically requires proof of four elements: (1) two separate products or services are involved; (2) the purchase of the tying product is conditioned on the additional purchase of the tied product; (3) the seller has sufficient market power in the market for the tying product; (4) a not insubstantial amount of interstate commerce in the tied product market is affected.

So why is "tying" or "bundling" OK in the cable industry?

In my mind it isn't legal. If you are a cable subscriber you don't get to choose what you pay for. You get to subscribe to a "bundle" of channels that the providing cable company has negotiated for you on your behalf. The content providers tell the cable companies that they have to negotiate over our complete bundle of offerings. That's not legal. That's "tying". "Tying" is illegal.

If the cable providers were negotiating on you behalf, they would say that .005% of our subscribers watch this channel X, if it's free, we'll take it. But no, it's tied to some more popular offering. So you have to pay for it.

It's a corporate media imposed "Tax" that you can't avoid.

If there was true consumer choice, many of these media entities would collapse, or offer their stuff for free.

The Yankees wouldn't be able to pay the salaries that they do if they lost the ability to impose themselves on cable providers.

We wouldn't have to support CNN or MSNBC.

Think about it.

It's like the British equivalent of BBC taxing you just because you have a TV. And sending trucks into the streets to find un-taxed TVs.

Uranium One is going to bag all of these miscreant commie fucks.

And I hope that they are all tried by military tribunals. This nonsense of getting the FBI involved in fighting terrorism and using criminal courts to let the animals out and back into the fray was a mistake. And I knew it when the decision first came out that the Bureau was going to be in the lead.

Now, the notion that stacked courts in DC are going to determine the fate of these boils?

I hope we set a serious precedent in modern times---- you betray constitutional government in the service of a foreign power then you've committed an act of war and will be tried in a military court as a spy.

To hell with The Rat, Hillary, Blumenthal, Podesta, Jarrett, Rice, Power, et al....even Bag Holder.

Rich, I posted OBISEXUALS' snarky response to ROMNEY in their debate. Romney said RUSSIA was our Greatest geopolitical foe basically. Ofukwad, like the true FULL COMMIE and dimbulb that he is, went on to mumble about the COLD WAR being over, and that the 80's called and wanted their FOREIGN POLICY back. Obama is a clown, and not even glib.
I would have responded. Mr Obama-Soetoro, the 80's called and asked for their CRACK PIPE back.
I completely UNDERSTAND where you are coming from RICH. My SERIOUS opinions on this blog have always been factual and I cut thru so much HORSE-SHIT. I will not play the FULL COMMIES game.

When I was younger, much younger, I was enthralled by the books of Carlos Casteneda.

I later learned that he may have been a fraud, but the idea that you could train with a shaman and achieve a higher consciousness was compelling. That you could have an "animal spirit" to guide you and that judicious use of psychotropics could lead to a higher understanding.

It sounded like existential "street smarts."

It sounded utopian.

Nowadays, listening to the Kevlar Kid is more enlightening.

Back when I was a teen-ager I hung out with a rough crowd at a friend's house on Pindle Ave. in Englewood, NJ. It was a street that had been block-busted. Went from white to black almost overnight.

I'll explain block-busting if anyone wants clarification.

Anyway we were all white, but so crazy, that black families cautioned their kids not to interact with us, or they'd fall to the dark side.

Going to a nearby basketball court we passed a young black kid who was enthralled with us. He was ignored. And then he said something that pissed of one of our crew. Who decided that he needed to teach the small black kid some respect.

I intervened. Pulled my guy, who could have probably beat my ass, off of him and shamed him for beating on a young kid.

He leaves. I'm checking on the young black kid, and his mother comes out the front door ready to beat my ass silly with a broom she's carrying.

To his credit, the young black kid tells his momma, that I helped him, don't hit him.

We talk, I explain what happened, she tells her son to be more respectful. Tells me she will beat the crap out of anyone who messes with her son.

I arrive at the basketball court. Tell everyone what happened. Don't mess with young Thomas or you'll be humiliated by a black woman with a broom.

After that, when Thomas says HI, everybody says HI back.

Roughly twenty years later my car is in the shop and I've visited my parents at their home. And it may have been about the time that they wee ill. So I'm walking from my parent's home to my apartment downtown.

Pindle Ave. is on the most direct route. Preoccupied by my thoughts, my highly honed street radar is off. Black guy steps in front of me and we do that little dance. He's not giving away. He's a foot in front of me when I stop. OK, there's going to be a confrontation. But he's too close to me. I can hit him with anything I want because he's too close to me to see it coming.

Then I hear a voice behind me. And I'm like damn. I missed two of them. This is not good.

And the voice behind me says "you remember me, don't you", 'You're scared." Bluster always being a good defense, I say "Not really, I'm just trying to decide if I need to cripple him, or kill him."

Guy, in front of me steps back quickly realizing he's too close. Guy behind me says leave him alone to the other guy.

I'm intrigued, so I turn around to the guy behind me. "You don't remember me, do you, I'm Thomas."

Iv'e got my hand down measuring the height I've remembered him as. He's looking at me, well over six foot and filled out. Says to me, "I've grown some since then."

Well I blasted him, what are you doing hanging out with trash like this who is too stupid to let somebody get that close to him to take him out quickly.

Well it quickly devolved to a friendly conversation.

It was a modern-day daniel and the lions den.

I'm not violent, but there are no rules in a street fight. I would have punched him in his face, head butted him, put a knee to his vitals, and broken a leg with my other leg, before he knew what happened to him.

Bottom Line, it was fun. I didn't have to resort to violence. Re-connected with an old friend. and the clueless guy realized that I was so close to him that he was defenseless.

And I guess I can say the same thing about others on JOM. The collective effect is as if a shaman was talking to you.

Young un, you don't see what's happening, let us enlighten you.

Jom has an "animal spirit" that foreshadows the truth. It's a "collective consciousness" that's inspired by.... I don't know... a search for the truth. JOM is contrarian.

Contrarians are often wrong, but when they win the gains are astronomical.

Gus,

I've had a couple of those. Transferred from one Catholic school to another in 7th grade. Some fool convinced another kid that I was his mortal enemy. Didn't know the kid or have a problem with.
We met behind the field house. I'm telling him I don't want to fight him, because this is bogus, he insists on fighting, I'm taller with a longer reach. If I stay away from him I win, so he charges at me and his head is unprotected.

He's humiliated. I'm talking to him after the fight. Why did this happen? He doesn't know.

I tell him I'd like to know who goaded him into this. He won't say. I looked into his eyes and I knew the next time i'd know.

What Democrats and their camp followers in DOJ, IRS, CIA, NSA, and other assorted Administrative State agencies, don't understand, just like garden variety criminals don't understand, is that it takes incredible effort to pull off a perfect crime. So much effort that it hardly ever succeeds. Yet Democrats and criminals never give trying, thinking that next time they'll get it right.

"As we head into the 2018 midterms, there is a reasonable chance that President Trump could become the fourth straight president to lose control of Congress."

It occurs to me that if Trump does NOT lose the House, that too would be a big story.

Buzzfeed (Buzzfeed!) reminds the rest of the MSM and Twitter that perhaps acting like the dictator's sister is a rock star is perhaps not a good idea, since she runs gulags and such.

I believe I posted a tweet of his yesterday or the day before in which he pointed out how much social justice stuff is really just pushed to give others power and money.

I can report South Koreans here in Pyeongchang are not as enthralled with Kim Yo Jong and the North Korean cheerleaders as it seems some media are back home.

Something about N.K. killing, starving, & imprisoning its people while threatening South Korea with nuclear annihilation.

This is the Sunday Today Show host, and NBC guy. Seems there are some chinks in the propaganda wall.

re Rasmussen--how hard is this to figure out. The Republicans give you a tax break vs. The Democrats wreck your health care . The Democrats are for swamping your community with welfare recipient illegal immigrants inclines to commit crime vs. the republicans want to close the border. (Even for DACA recipients--the republicans offer you a way to legalization provided there will be some changes vs, the Democrats could have legalized you but didn't and now threw in the towel and abandoned you.

You don't have to be a fortuneteller,

The enemy of their enemy is their friend, MM.
I have little doubt no small number of the msm are actually rooting for the most brutal dictator in the world over Trump. Their anti Trump mania knows essentially no bounds.
Besides, Kim is a communist and despite their rhetoric, the left in the West kinda likes brutal communists, though they occasionally embarrass our pet progs by being a bit too blatantly brutal.

If you want proper credit for being a racist I think you have to capitalize the C, MM. :)

This month despite the Dems wails that the tax changes were for the rich (megaphoned by the media) most people are seeing a considerable tax break. i predicted years ago the media would be taken down by their slavering over the left, and I think I was right.

Clarice,

I think you were right, too.

Their slavish devotion to whatever bilge Nancy Pelosi spills, and their reflexive opposition to anything Trump does, has put many of them on the side of those who want to destroy the country, both domestically and internationally.

Jack is Back!

Great Pieces, Clarice.

How Trump keeps from cracking is unbelievable. He is being waterboarded all and every day with leaks, innuendo, rumors and falsehoods. But he keeps pressing on regardless.

Clarice Feldman

He is a phenomenon, JIB..even in foreign affairs per Kissinger.

Educators and student choir members gather on the balconies of the Louisville Hyatt-Regency atrium to sing "The Star Spangled Banner" in what has become an annual tradition.

Video at the link, and it is really beautiful. Recommended listening, especially at the end where the crowd breaks into "USA! USA!"

Fascinating short interview with John O'Hurley (J. Peterman from the Seinfeled show).

In which we discover that William Shatner, age 86, visits 4chan.

some comments:

Shatner is Q

set phasers to rekt

This makes me love him MOAR

TOP KEK.

Dammit Jim, I’m a doctor not a shitposter.

Hah!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Janet,

Glad you enjoyed that! It made me laugh I follow Shatner on Twitter, and mostly his discussions are with fans or non-fans trying to push Star Wars or something.

But every once in a while he drops a real gem.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I have now seen two Twitter posts, plus a reference to Gorka also asking the same question:

Is the FBI slow-walking White House clearances and holding back information until it can be used to damage Trump?

James D.

I think it is not so much the movie but the political statement the SJW crowd would like to make ... Wakanda could as easily have been on Xandar or any of the other half dozen worlds in Guardians.

And this is why I have no interest at all in seeing Black Panther. And a lot less interest in seeing anything Marvel or Disney puts out from here on in.

James D.

Fantastic Pieces, Clarice!

James D.

I have little doubt no small number of the msm are actually rooting for the most brutal dictator in the world over Trump. Their anti Trump mania knows essentially no bounds.

They rooted for Obama even when he was treating them like garbage. They cheered when he wiretapped them. They cheered when he lied to them. They cheered when he prosecuted the Fox News reporter. They would be perfectly happy in NK, the whole lot of them.

Jack is Back!

Reminds me of the Jim Jones massacre, James D.

Surfing the TV before heading to mass, I just watched an American kid win the Men's Luge. The favorite German guy screwed up one of his turns and almost crashed out.

According to the announcers "this is a shocker!" I only wish someone would hand him a MAGA cap. Moar winning.

CORRECTION: The American kid only wins silver but that was against the odds according to the experts.

MM: Is the FBI slow-walking White House clearances and holding back information until it can be used to damage Trump?

Add to Rich’s list.

What is missing, Rich, is finally the realization that corrupt behavior is a Lifetime Political Habit of Clintons, Obamas, and, ergo, the Democrat Party.

What is missing: Democrats air-kiss corruption as easily as Hollywood air-kisses Weinstein.

Miss M, that Russian plane had all the Trump evidence on it. (We all know there isn't any).

NEW THREAD

Miss Marple the Deplorable

sbw,

I am of the opinion that if the FBI and other organizations cannot be abolished and reformed (due to democrats in Congress) then they ought to be reorganized, with different divisions moved to different cities. For example, move organized crime to Indianapolis, human trafficking to Salt Lake City, etc.

First of all, many employees wouldn't want to relocate so there would be some attrition. Secondly, conspiracies like we are discovering would be more difficult without the ability to have secret, in-person meetings. They would have to communicate by telephone and email, which could be monitored.
