She took the John deutsch course in information security, yikes, the Alex Jones subplot is rather weak, I didnt much care for him, as he had it in for the tea party when they were the only real movement against obama.

Its like when the x files shied away from a world nearly as crazy as their 90s story arcs.

matt - deplore me if you must

I drove past Gun Court in Kingston a few times on my travels there. My friend lived around the corner from Bob Marley's home and so when we went there it was an interesting drive.

I have a friend who is a priest working with the homeless in Trench Town and another who has a parish in St. Mary's. Love the country and the people, but it is a very violent place.

When one travels to the other islands the worst thing one can be is Jamaican. Luckily I was able to navigate all of that.

It is odd to an outsider when people in each of the countries actively dislike the others and even in places like St. Kitt's & Nevis the same country, for goodness sake, they do the same.

Common sense soon come....

I've started delving into a set of interviews of conservative voices by Teri O'Brien ("Dangerous Thinkers" series).
She's a self-promoter but I can live with that. She's trying to build a brand and make a living.
I enjoyed her talk with Don Surber, also the one with VDH was solid and had some new stuff in it (new to me).
I'd be curious to hear feedback on an interview with Bill Gertz. Probably narciso will be very familiar. I've always assumed Mr Gertz was a conduit for a set of Intelligence folks with a conservative outlook.
Anyway, for anyone who has the time ...
http://teriobrien.com/did-china-cause-u-s-s-mccain-shipwreak-bill-gertz-washington-freebeacon-senior-editor-show-notes-dangerous-thinkers-008/
(Spoiler, Gertz thinks Chinese hacking *could* have been involved with the 2 US warship collisions but he doesn't say it is for sure.)
wiki: "Miles Kwok, is a Chinese billionaire businessman turned political activist"
O'Brien and Gertz quote Chinese leadership as saying this guy, all by himself, is as dangerous to the Chinese Establishment as the entire Tienanmen Sq movement put together.

narciso

I don't know the particulars but this many incidents suggest such a thing, and I trust gertzs hunches.

The Wagner Group thing in Syria is very confusing if you read the press reports. The Russians are admitting to 5 KIA. Other reports filed mention dozens, scores or hundreds of casualties.

I find the low end estimates unlikely. The reports on what the US response was seem uniform - B-52(s), AC-130 gunship(s), Apache helicopters, Reaper drones, 15-E fighters and artillery. And presume an AWACS overhead for coordination.

Which one of these doesn't have night-fighting targeting systems? Reports did seem to indicate a night attack. So with all this lethality in the air and the artillery only 5 died?

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-14/kremlin-stays-aloof-as-army-treats-wounded-in-u-s-syria-strike

From above cite: "Even as the Kremlin denies any official link to them, scores of Russian mercenaries wounded in U.S. strikes in Syria are being treated at Defense Ministry hospitals.

The wounded were brought to military hospitals in Moscow and St. Petersburg, according to two people in contact with them, after more than 200 fighters died in last week’s failed assault on a base held by U.S.-backed forces in Syria’s eastern Deir Ezzor region. The death toll’s rising as some of the wounded succumb to their injuries, according to one of the people."

https://in.reuters.com/article/mideast-crisis-syria-russia-casualties/insight-russian-toll-in-syria-battle-was-300-killed-and-wounded-sources-idINKCN1FZ2DP

Above indicates 100 KIA 200 WIA.

Saw one account at an iffy source, I can't find it again, or I'd cite, was an interview with one of the attackers. Said it was a coordinated attack that lost cohesion, with some units not on schedule - that they expected air support, that didn't arrive. That they were overwhelming repulsed.

http://www.news.com.au/world/syrian-troops-preparing-for-fresh-assault-against-usbacked-sdf-deir-ezzor-bastion-reports/news-story/abf48c26e61587234478e11664351522

I doubt this, unconfirmed reports that the Syrians will try this again.

If this is all tracking correctly, this is the biggest battle loss for the USSR/Russia since WWII.

I don't understand the strategy here. Were they testing US resolve to support our partners? Did they think such an attack, if successful, would send a message to the SDF that US backing was iffy?

I think that somebody, or several somebodies, on their side, grossly mis-under-estimated the situation.

jim nj

Was this A Trump Jedi mind-trick? Putin is in CYA mode. This has to be a major embarassment. Does he, or does he not, control these people. Was this done with his knowledge, and if so, why? If not, who's running this show?

According to the reports I've seen of the use of the de-confliction hotline, the official Russians knew nothing about this. Were they uninformed or just covering for the attack. I believe the first. A de-confliction hotline only works when both sides are being honest professionals. There is a report that after the battle was over the Russians asked if the attack was over and could people rescue/retrieve the attackers. That would seem that they made a lot of phone calls and finally found out what was going on.

Which would make sense as I haven't seen any reports on our part of launching further attacks during the recovery.

daddy

Your analysis makes good sense to me jim nj.

simply stupid

Dr. J, a couple of pointers, Please ask HHSOIG auditors why your grant was selected for audit and re-read the scope of the audit carefully. Then ask the individuals who issued you the grant who in their division is handling the responses to the OIG audits if it is centralized. Speak to that individual and ask to who is HHS OGC who handles issues from the OIG. The regular folks make actually be on your side and also do not like OIG peering over their backs.

As much as you think they are auditing you they are auditing the process of issuing the grants as well without realizing the 800 lb gorilla of the additional cost that you are incurring in responding to some usual nonsense and their response just like the FBI is that they are doing their job . Very narrow minded myopic and silo based thinking but that is the government for you.

jim nj

Does this send a message to Turkey also? Don't mess with the SDF, or the same thing will happen to you.

I've been reading for months, if not longer, that Russia has been in a superior diplomatic position vis a vis, the US, in Syria, with contacts in Syria, Iran, Turkey, etc.

I think that just changed. Apparently, the US, with a smaller footprint in the country, may have just gained a veto power. Or even more.

If Putin didn't authorize this attack. And I don't think he was that stupid, then he's lost control over some of his forces. How can you act as a guarantor in peace negotiations if you can't control your own people?

Assuming that Russia doesn't want a direct confrontation with Israel or the US, the Syrian Air Force is now vulnerable from either the Israelis or us. One of us can decide that it's a menace, particularly if we learn that they did intend to supply air cover for this recent attack.

How would you deploy Russian air power after that without the fig leaf of the Syrian Air Force? Any further air attacks would show only Russian thinking.

How would Iran and Hezbollah continue to operate without Syrian air power?

Just spit-balling here, but I think this recent attack, causes a lot of strategic re-thinking.

jim nj

Russia has military and diplomatic power in Syria because it has an airbase and seaport in Syria.

How much justification do we need to take them both out?

I agree that that would be a HUGE move, but if you're targeting our military, it's justified, and just possibly, given the recent attack, explainable to our allies.

Anybody out there think we don't already have actionable plans to take out that airbase?

Yo, Putin, yes you, remove the airbase or we will.

Still spit-balling.

Quarter past three here, or was when I sat down. Awoke with strains of Brown Eyed Woman running through my brain. So I sang myself awake in the darkness until I'd woke up Jack, and we both got up to take a leak.

I'm lucky to have the music I listened to a lot before going deaf "seared into my memory." Where have I heard that phrase before?

Another random thought re music...decades ago I had a double album set of Glenn Miller tunes. One disk was of the original Glenn Miller band with him playing and conducting. The second disk was his band playing the same tunes with a different conductor after the war. Same songs, same group for the most part, possibly even some of the same instruments...only Glenn was missing. Even to my uneducated ear the difference was palpable. To this day I can still hear that music.

But of course, no one else can. :-)

Which brings to mind another tune...
"You may see me tonight with an illegal smile...it don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while"

An interesting bit of info -

This happened back in Sept. 2016.

Corrupt Democrats OUTSIDE - on the ground - pushing the 'Russia Show'.
The bird dogging act put on by Shirley Teter that Project Veritas later exposed.

"Things got uglier as people were leaving, she [Teter] said, when she taunted them, saying “‘You better learn to speak Russian,'”


~So back in Sept. 2016 there is a Democrat operative pushing the 'Russia Show' narrative.

Dems set up all the pieces.

The letter is from the end of Aug. 2016.

"Why is it that the Democrat National Committee was unwilling to allow the FBI to inspect their servers? And why, given the clear-cut lack of evidence, were congressional Democrats nevertheless clearly itching to pin the blame for the hack on Trump? It’s almost as if they were trying to frame him."

Political philosophy is fundamental and at the basic level, not too complicated but woefully unexplored, at least unexplored intelligently, these days. Here is a superb essay that coincides precisely with my thinking and explains to the nitwit nevertrump guardians of pure "conservatism" like Goldberg, Kristol, Gerson et al why the term conservative has largely lost any meaning when what you are fighting to conserve is the last 100 years the progressives have wrought. Good read.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Janet,

Exactly! I cannot see how it is anything other than an attempt to frame him as revenge and a lesson to anyone who would oppose them.

All of this hysteria and running around trying to form "The Resistance" and such is because they know the evidence is there. Everything that happened AFTER Trump won is a slapdash effort to provide a reason for their illegal activities BEFORE the election.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I think Trump has provided extra incentive for prog nuttiness but were already trending toward far left authoritarian lawlessness more and more as the New Left vanguard and their sick spawn complete their conquest of the Dem party and other institutions.
In perfect compliment to that Amgreatness link I posted above we are transitioning from the old political relationships to a new one in which the "conservatives" of necessity become revolutionaries while the revolting left having largely completed their Gramscian march become the defenders of the faith and the status quo, though they seek to extend and make permanent their gains through what would effectively be a one party state and the end of self governance.
I don't believe they will be allowed to but it may destroy our Founding framework to bottle up and suffocate these disgusting, liberty loathing prog termites.

Florida school shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez on President Trump’s tweet: “The FBI were some of the amazing first responders who were helping us get to safety and the fact that he wants to discredit them in any way… it’s not acceptable.” http://cnn.it/2ECLPxX

=====================================

I don't have a lot of expertise about law enforcement, but would the FBI have been called to help lead the kids to safety? Who would have called the FBI?

The guy who retweeted points out that CNN is using these kids to prop up McCabe and Mueller. I already saw a story from Laura Loomer (InfoWars, for what it's worth) that CNN is rehearsing kids for the town hall they are having, so it wouldn't surprise me if CNN is putting words in these kids' mouths.

On the other hand, if the FBI WAS there, someone should explain who called them and why they were there so quickly that they could help lead kids to safety. Seems fishy to me.

Did anyone else hear the student interviewed last night, on abc I believe, who announced they were going to 'first change the state and then the nation' on the issue of guns?

They have absorbed the desired narrative that the law and public policy are what gets used to create compliance in 'we the governed'. Reminds me of the original plans issued just after ww2 with carnegie and rockefeller financing to revise the nature of the american high school and the desire to use "organizations and legislation" to create a new kind of democracy.

I was working on something this weekend involving learning standards and the webinars to be presented in 2018 as so much of the ed agenda goes live.

an old post about Cummings & True the Vote just as an example of how it is done -

* Ohio Dems, Elijah Cummings' Attack on True the Vote Reveals Real Agenda -
"It’s interesting to note that Cummings sent his letter late on October 4th (2012), a Thursday, and before True the Vote had an opportunity to respond. Cummings was immediately on Soledad Obrien’s CNN morning show where he falsely claimed True the Vote was “under a congressional investigation” due to concerns the group was attempting to “suppress Democratic votes.”"

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2012/11/02/ohio-democrats-and-elijah-cummings-attack-on-true-the-vote-reveals-much/

It is pure slander....a set up "show" where he decides to "investigate" & then smears the group by saying they are under investigation!
-------------

"Cummings cites a 2012 report promulgated by the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights accusing Ms. Engelbrecht’s True the Vote organization of sending poll watchers only to heavily minority counties. Ms. Engelbrecht explains to a seemingly confused Cummings that True The Vote sends no volunteers anywhere. Rather, the organization only trains poll workers."

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/02/the-cummings-confusion.php

--------------

"Emails released today by the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee show that Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) has some explaining to do. The emails show that Cummings and the IRS were asking for nearly identical information from election integrity watchdog True the Vote. Further, the emails show communication as Lerner was feeding information to Cummings and his staff."

This is a lame excuse to explain why they didn't alert Americans to Russian involvement. The only logical reason (following my pet theory, of course) is that they didin't want to alert Trump that they were crafting a tale of Russian collusion and espionage.

Mueller has no authority to issue a report, except confidentially to the Justice Department. It would be up to the attorney general (or presumably his deputy) to release it.

This is from his interview with Saryl Atkisson on "Full Measure" yesterday.

Partial transcript included, in which he says there were "hundreds and hundreds of unmaskings" and that then the names ended up in newspapers.

People need to go to jail, in my opinion.

Sharyl, not Sayrl. Need more coffee!

Sure do, Appalled, but Miss Marple is dignified - unlike myself - so there's no confusion...

Enjoying Obama's economy? You're welcome!

"Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud" ---Donald J.Trump

When we take back the WH in 2020 one of our first jobs will be restoring dignity and decency to the office of the President.It won't be hard.

Our next job will be taking care of Russia and the Americans who ran interference for them.At a DNC meeting the other night in Hillsborough some of the things I heard our speakers say turned my hair fucking white. There was some push back from some of the more feeble members but when it was explained why they're about to do these things everyone was on board.

With the help of the FBI and the intel community and especially the media who need to cover this up there are plans in place to wipe this scourge from America once and for all.

Hmmm. A gal I follow on Twitter says one of the on-camera kids on CNN is the son of an FBI agent.

I am waiting to see evidence before I accept that as true, but obviously people are as suspicious as I am.

To heck with that. I want them facing gallows or firing squads.

Sometimes it's what you don't see that is important. When is the last time you saw the media defending our flag, our founding, capitalism, our culture, a non islamic religion, our military or speaking up for any of our freedoms. They have only defended their freedom, free press.

This is an excellent point!
