Yep. Crucify your enemies publicly. Hell of a "general philosophy" for governing from Officials in a Constitutional Republic, but there you go.

That's how all of them - the Dems, the MSM (but I repeat myself) and the GOPeErs as well, view all of us. They don't see us as citizens, they see us as subjects.

GUS

Good one Miss Marple. There was a remake of the MONKEES, the NEW MONKEES, and a friend of mine was one of them. Marty Ross.

My band plays LAST TRAIN TO CLARKSVILLE.

The Infamous Ignatz

That anyone could call a memo detailing the use of the surveillance apparatus of the state to try and turn a presidential election "oversold" is simply a measure of how far down into the cesspool of corruption the disgusting cohort of Bill, Hill and Barry have pulled this country in the last 20+ years.
That the Bush family and the Yes, Prime Minister GOPe dopes either stood by or actively assisted the Dem scum is one more measure of how far we've fallen.

The goddamn Dems, assisted by the FBI, DOJ and intel agencies, tried to prevent self governance and install their own corrupt bitch who they had already illegally and dishonestly exonerated for undeniable crimes.
In a constitutional republic does it get any bigger than trying to usurp the constitution and the republic, fer Christ's sake?!?

sammy small

Why would they NOT point the NSA , FBI, etc., at us rather than ... at whom?

Exactly my gut feel when I read the articles about the Obama administration arming so many departments with SWAT teams and buying millions of rounds of ammo.....just waiting for the word to deploy them and put down the deplorables. It scared the hell out of me when Obama first touted that he would stand up a civilian service equivalent to the military.

Actually, Page was apparently an FBI asset in 2013 and helped them nab a spy. every person I know who regularly travels there on high level business--conference etc--are voluntarily debriefed on their return by the CIA and often the FBI as well. It's information gathering.In all the years they were watching Page he never gave them cause for an indicgtment for espionage or criminal conduct. He was picked because he was an easy target--traveled to russia and was (a minor, peripheral) part of the Trump camapign--just a pigeon on whose emails and phone conversations with anyone, even going back years, could be surveilled.Stiloviki conduct

Porchlight

If they had all that info on Page then they shouldn't have needed the dossier...and yet McCabe said that without the dossier there would have been no application to the FISA court.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clarice,

Isn't it the duty of the FBI to notify a presidential candidate that someone on their campaign is a Russian spy? If not, why not?

Seems to me that if they thought he was a spy, they should have notified Trump, who after all was from the world of business and not statecraft.

So they really don't care about spies, apparently.

Thomas Wictor talking about the FBI agent who quit to whine about diversity and Comey being gone. It's pretty good.

https://twitter.com/ThomasWictor/status/959960275800678400

Clarice Feldman

*slivoviki*
I should think if they were concerned they'd do that, MM.

GUS

Exactly Clarice. If PAGE had carried the RESET button directly to PUTIN for OBAMA, or if he had carried actual URANIUM to MOSCOW like MUELLER did, and if TRUMP wanted to frame them, would it be ok, to use any asset at his disposal, so as to win RE-ELECTION.
Basically, the OBAMA admin, the CORRUPT 7TH FLOOR of the FBI and various other CLAPPER, BRENNAN, RICE, POWER types, did their INTEL GOOGLE of all TRUMPS know campaign associates and VOILA!!!!!
CARTER PAGE, and some other goof who got DRUNK in London. The OBAMA admin, was LOOKING to aid RODHAM. By Obama admin, I certainly include specifically COMEY. That FUCKING GOOF is OBVIOUSLY AFRAID of SOMETHING.
I would not trust nor keep ANYONE who had an office on the 7th floor of FBI, if I was TRUMP.

GUS

Why has the LEFT and the MFM assumed that STEELE is a good guy?? Would a FULL COMMIE ....EVER....VOUCH for a former CIA dude who got dirt on a LIB???

GUS

Lovely Miss M.

for you...

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clarice,

I think that is a question that the FBI should be asked.

If your thought Page was a spy, why didn't you warn the Trump campaign?

exdemocrat

And keep in mind that the only record of Flynn’s convo with the FBI - aka Strokh - is Strock’s 302 report.
Which no-one is allowed to see, of course.
Except for Flynn’s lawyers?

Miss M. the NY SLIME printed an op ed by JOSH CAMPBELL. I wanted to puke. OH POOR POOR JOSHY, HIS CORRUPT FRIENDS ARE BEING FOUND OUT.

The idea that RAND and FILE FBI agents are being attacked, is like saying YELLOWSTONE PARK RANGERS were attacked when NIXON was hounded out of office.

Josh Campbell is a pussy.

exdemocrat

Btw, as I share a fair bit of Steele’s background, as soon as I heard of him and read his dossier, I knew (a) he was a rabid Trump hater, (b) his dossier was not written by him personally, and (c) he should DIAF.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Gus,

Read that thread by Wictor.

He's exactly right. The guy, who was in counter-terrorism, was all concerned about DIVERSITY.

Yeah, when I am confronted by a Muslim head-chopper, I really worry that the person defending me isn't a transgender black person.

Paul Simon - Me and Julio down by the Schoolyard

DebinNC

Comforting to read verification of how much Comey loved being FBI Dir., imagining how much it killed him to be publicly axed less than 4 yrs. into a 10 yr. term, and see he's obsessed with shredding any remaining remnants of respect.

GUS

Miss M, I just watched the video for ME and JULIO a couple minutes ago.

Spud Webb!!!!!


Jack, my Scottish Mom had 2 American music heroes,
Johnny Cash and Ray Charles. A black man, and a man in black.
My best friends MOM loved Ray Charles, and my pal's middle name is RAY. His older daughter who passed away was Mallory Rae.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

My favorite from that Paul Simon song:

"When the radical priest came to get me released, we were all on the cover of Newsweek.:

LOL!

exdemocrat

Steele is a good example of why, after 30 years living in the US and gratefully accepting her citizenship, I have never once taken either responsibility for (a) Britain’s sins, or (b) credit for her gifts.
But it has always amazed me how Americans wishing to understand the real mindset of our (ostensibly) closest allies never ever ask.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Gus,

I have to thank you for this idea of the dance party.

I am finding music I haven't thought about in years. It is very cheerful!

exdemocrat

If we’re going to do vintage Paul Simon - especially in these crazy times - then I propose this:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5NWcQ9NEsa0

GUS

Deb, note the SCUM that COMEY put in high command positions. Note that Comey didn't MAN UP, when Loretta Lynch snipped his balls. Comey, like Strzok, was afraid of RODHAM'S disapproval, if he actually DID HIS JOB, and yet RODHAM still won.
Strzok made that apparent, Comey's actions made it obvious. THE MATTER. Comey was willing to play along with DJT, until DJT, recognized the CUT OF COMEY'S JIB, was PATHETIC.
Comey isn't a MAN. A man has honor, dignity and scruples. COMEY didn't express JACK SHIT about DJT, until he was SHITCANNED. He's a pussy.

Paul Simon "Late in the evening"

The Infamous Ignatz

It is important we never forget Hillary's exoneration and the plot against Trump were contemporaneous.
Any time you start wondering whether they could be so corrupt as the Trump stuff seems, remember the egregious behavior they displayed and the tortuous hoops through which they pushed lady justice to keep that flea ridden bitch out of chokey.
And remember this little bit that is often forgotten. They had a legal duty to report to congress their counterintel investigation into Trump's associates and they didn't; they kept it hidden. When called on it Nutjob Comey just shrugged his narrow little shoulders and tried to disappear into the drapery.
Short of an armed coup, this is as bad as it gets. They tried a bloodless one and having failed are trying to avoid the consequences that every failed palace intrigue deserves.

Wictor's latest was very good, especially this bit: a new cartoon sound effect:

I told you about a very dark roman a clef by BBC sjydragon editor Andrew mar called 'head of stage' which nonetheless predicted two years ahead of time, he also mentioned a brief Boris Johnson premiership.

In the book he outlines a loose affiliation of remainers among British spies corporations newsPaper publishers who ultimately founder, I was reminded of this:

ex,

As a descendent of Old Bligthy and having lived there I understand. It is quite eye opening to all my English friends and relatives when they visit. Mostly how cheap every thing is especially cars, food and homes.

GUS

Miss Marple, you've known me for a long time. You must know how much I love music.
My DANCE PARTY tonight had a theme. Each and every song I played and some offerings from our JOM friends had a JEWISH artist, artists or leader of the group.
From Gene Simmons AND Paul Stanley of KISS (Dr Love), to Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) to SUSANNA HOFFS (The Bangles) Walk like an Egyptian...to NEIL DIAMOND....on and on...it interested me, how little we know about some ARTISTS/MUSICIANS, and how interesting so many of them are.

Jack is Back!

The Martian is rescued again, so I am off to dreamland.

Ok, here's my rare contribution to the music night shift: Hired Gun on Netflix.

It's like Wrecking Crew, but for the 80s.

GUS

Jack, when I visit Scotland, and also Ireland, I am fascinated at how they are taxed vs us. VAT, TV's, gasoline. I've come to the conclusion that my Scottish Aunties and Uncles, and my Cousins, have a similar standard of living as we do, but they are not QUITE as FREE. And I may be wrong.

"Short of an armed coup, this is as bad as it gets"

There has been this separation between those who say "we survived Obama, we can survive Hillary, things aren't so bad" and those who say "Fuck that".

It occurred to me today that the 2nd group make the USA what the USA is.

Gus,

I didn't even think of a theme other than you seem to like instrumental stuff, which I am not as big a fan of as I don't play.

What an interesting theme! When you do this again I will pay more attention!

Re Contreras, I’m torn between 2 lawyer jokes about judges:
(a) what do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 75? Answer: “Your Honor.”, and
(b) “he’s the best judge that money can buy!”

But at least Contreras helps to provide us with the diversity without which we couldn’t survive

For some reason, I thought abracadabra was by Toto, instead of the steve miller band, well their hooks ate similar.

GUS

Exdem, it's much more dangerous HERE. MUCH MORE.
If the UK, had, had our 2nd amendment, there would be blood EVERYWHERE in the streets. EVERYWHERE.
Britains problem, is pretty much the same as EUROPE and the SILLY NOTION of the EU...in general.
THE HAVES, import the problems of THE HAVE NOTS.
Libtards see BRITAINS glory, economy, and MOSTLY it's former CULTURE, as bad wrong, greedy and selfish. PUPPYCOCK. I have an analogy. Take a gallon of milk. Pour out 1 ounce of milk, and pour in one ounce of CAT PISS.
What do you have now?????? A GALLON OF CAT PISS.
Our countries EXTREME violence problem is CLEARLY TRACEABLE to LIBTARD/FULL COMMIE policies of GENERATIONAL GUBMINT DOLE DEPENDENCE. Coupled with the freedom to KEEP and BARE arms, has given the CRIMINAL ELEMENT access to those guns.
It is a problem that requires STRONG PENALTIES in order to reverse or defeat the problem. THE FULL COMMIE is not interested. The FULL COMMIE relies on COLORS, SEXES, CULTURES and specifically MADE UP VICTIM groups, to garner a plurality to stay in power....and so it goes.
The UK, is now in a situation, where the influx of "IMMIGRANTS", has ceased to ADD to the RICHNESS of DIVERSITY, rather, it has created new problems that THE FULL COMMIES will NOT address.

Way more than 10 years after Love to Change the World

One I liked to play back in the day.

Quicksilver I Found love

GUS

Exdem, No, we don't play any Clapton. Capn gave a CLAPTON song to the GUS JUKEBOX last week, and I respect Clapton a great deal. I'm more of a POWER POP guitarist. I have CHOPS, but my love is POP.
If you've ever seen my links to GREG KOCH, Greg was a friend of my younger brother, and a STUDENT of mine. He loved Clapton, as a LAD, now at 5o, and 6ft 8" he can play ANYTHING ver batim.
Great song Exdem. I own a VERY VERY VERY sweet STRAT, that mimics the sounds CLAPTON, Stevie Ray, and even Bonnie Raitt GETS.
And as a 1/2 British kid, and a boy who lived in the UK, I love every bit of BRITISH INVASION stuff.

boris

Used to do a few Stevie Ray, still do "Empty Arms"

GUS

PORCH!!! Great song, you can sushrightup and touch the sky!!!
I'm sure YOU are aware that Stevie "GUITAR" Miller, was born in MILWAUKEE, Les Paul was his GODFATHER, and GUITAR TEACHER. But most of all.......STEVE MILLER was a UW-MADISON dude, and had a band with BOZ SKAGGS in Madison.
If you haven't seen his ROCK N ROLL HALL of FAME induction speech, IT'S PRICELESS. Last year, same year as my BELOVED Cheap Trick.

CROSSFIRE is my favorite Stevie song.

I .....LOVE.....the album family style, with his brother Jimmy.

So Gus, ever see these guys Danny Miller Band"?

The bass player in the video moved away but before this he was in several of the bands I played with around Southern Wis.

boris

The singer in one of the bands I was in along with the bass player from the video was at the concert the bight before the crash that killed Stevie.

GUS

I was at the concert the night before Vaughn was killed. Clapton and Buddy Guy too.
I live quite close to the ampitheater and I have played the venue in my glory days.
Boris, you played in SOUTHERN WI??? I have played in a band in SE WI for nearly 40 years.

HOLY SHIT. HOLY EFFING SHIT. I live about a mile from the NASHOTAH CLUBHOUSE. This is UNBELIEVABLE.

Exdem, I believe we have a lot in common. I always smile as I remember that Winston Churchill's Mother was an American, and My Mother was a Scot. President Trumps Mother was also Scottish, from Stornaway Isle of Lewis. I am VERY proud of that, and I am extremely proud of the SCOTTISH HERITAGE that I grew up with. Directly. I lived in Scotland and I visit whenever I can. Ironically, my Mother is buried at ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY.

Nice version exd

GUS

Exdem, I saw your next link, Clapton with Paul Carrack. I am a HUGE SQUEEZE fan, in fact SQUEEZE, Difford, Tilbrook, Carrack et al, once witnessed MY BAND PLAY, after a GIG here in Milwaukee. It was surreal.

As for you BORIS, I am shocked. I've always seen your AVATAR, but WOW, what a neat and personal connection. As I was doing my GUS DANCE PARTY the lovely MRS GUS, was looking over my shoulder and she commented on SUSANNA HOFFS, Rickenbacker.

Not making any claims these are the greatest or best rock tunes ever but these ones I can listen to over and over forever;
DC5; can't you see that she's mine
Dreaming; Blondie
My gal is red hot; Robert Gordon and Link Ray
St Louis Blues; Flaming Groovies
Dead Flowers; Stones
Little Deuce Coupe; Beach Boys

Ig great shit, the best song the GROOVIES ever did was YOU TORE ME DOWN.
I opened for Blondie a year or 2 ago, and they didn't play PICTURE THIS.

GUS

Ex, my Mom was here from 59-61, then again from 66-until she died in 2011. She became an American after the millenium. She didn't want to give up her UK/SCOTTISH citizenship. EGO. She finally became AMERICAN, so as to be BURIED with my natural Father at ARLINGTON. And she is.
My Mom died suddenly the very night the GREEN BAY PACKERS won the SUPER BOWL. I found her at her house a couple days later. Her interment at ARLINGTON was BEYOND BELIEF. As you have seen, I am a VERY VERY PATRIOTIC American, but that does not preclude me from loving BRITAIN. I love BRITAIN, and I see it declining for POLITICAL reasons. Same as most of the REST of EUROPE.
BRITAIN VOTED TO LEAVE THE EU. The LIBERAL POWERS that BE, are ignoring the will of the people. SOUND FAMILIAR????

GUS,

After watching Hired Gun, I see why your bass player hates Billy Joel. He was such a sociopath his bass player committed suicide at 26 and he eventually screwed all his old band out of everything. (Not the the game isn't cutthroat, but sheesh.)

GUS

Man Tran, you are a very good judge of character.
Billy Joel has made HUNDREDS of MILLIONS, and his life is one divorce or car crash after another.

I'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND THAT, other than, if you have no HONOR, you cannot be HONORABLE.

Hollyweird and FAME are like that

GUS

Gentlejim...I may be driving thru your area on THURSDAY. Going to CLEVELAND.
I'd love to say HELLO.
