Nuke Seattle.

Yeah, we’re all for nuking Seattle as long as the prevailing wind is in the right direction. The 70% of our commie county would suddenly be the odd ones out.

"If you believe women are physically stronger and faster then men, then we are no longer arguing but bending the dimensions of reality."

Seems to me you've arguing against a position that noone here has taken. I certainly don't believe in lowering standards that are there for a damn good reason just to be "inclusive." I was simply curious about how often those who've served have, in fact, had to haul a comrade to safety over a considerable distance. Has anyone here ever had to do so?

If anything, I'd put myself in the Kev camp, when he says, "Suggestion: why not create a tradition within western militaries where elite all-female fighting units are developed?" Just as men have the muscularity to do certain sorts of jobs, women are better at others, surviving cold for example, I believe. They may not have the 3D spatial acuity that men do, but they are better on the linguistic front. They can perform very well where endurance is required, and a 120 lb. woman can go a lot of places that a 220 lb. man cannot.

That doesn't mean I think they should be serving on all the same teams. There are a lot of women who would like to fight on the ground for their country or beliefs, and where Ranger training takes advantage of male skill sets, I think it's a shame that that's the only avenue available. I can certainly imagine certain types of special ops which could take advantage of some uniquely female skillsets too. Could women could haul other women to safety? I don't know. but I can also imagine women being more ruthless than men in certain situations.

Just a comment on all the amplifier/cable arm waving discussed recently, I’ve played with a lot of high end stuff for about 50 yrs. Had a buddy (ex-Ginormous Research) that opened his own high end shop down the street from our shop, so I got to play with a lot of fun toys. In signal analysis there is a thing called transfer function analysis. There was a guy about 30 yrs ago who actually used TFA to create any sound you wanted. Can’t remember his name, but he made a splash for awhile. It generally is compromised by the inductance in speaker coils and output transformers, if there are any. Many ‘ears’ get conditioned to expect the distortion caused by inductors. If you ever break free of that colored image, you can never go back. I also remember there were some guys in WV who were duplicating guitar amps with TFA circuits, but I never heard any, so I don’t know whether they succeeded.

'...but I can also imagine women being more ruthless than men in certain situations.'

But enough about how my ex found about forty tabs of ecstasy in my bathrobe and took them to her divorce attorney, who then threatened to have me arrested.


Well that would be problematic. Yikes.

Nice to hear Andy McCarthy on the Levin show make the obvious point that Rosenstein has a bigger conflict of interest in the case of SC Mueller than Sessions ever did:

McCarthy: What I find odd about the situation with Rosenstein is if the removal of Comey is part of the Investigation, he is in the middle of it as a witness. If the FISA Warrants are of any consideration in the Investigation, he signed off on the last one. It seems to me that he's got a bigger conflict here than Sessions had and Session's conflict is what gave us Mueller in the first place.


BOE - I must say, you make our lives seem rather boring...but in a good way ;)

Now 5 figure shotguns...everyone knows they make perfect sense. :/


I thought cumberbatch was merely arrogant:



Only caught the last half of Levin's Show with guests David Limbaugh and Andy McCarthy, but at the closing both Andy and David said they thought the Mueller investigation would not lead to indictment nor impeachment, that Trump would in effect be cleared of any criminal action, but that the FBI/DOJ would receive pats on the back for doing the good investigative job that they had to do under these circumstances of Russian Election meddling.

Levin disagreed but did not elaborate, simply stating that he thinks we will hear the term "Obstruction" of Justice appearing in Mueller's report. I tend to agree with Levin, especially with what Levin did not say. I do not trust that snake Mueller at all.

All 3 agreed it has never been a criminal matter but instead has been a political witch hunt from Day 1, solely devoted to figuring out how to get this President impeached. I concur.


And we think we are still masters of this realm:



Maybe they are just merely mad over there:

Anyway the plaintiffs are taking their best shots and falling short. If they lose, as I expect, it will set the bar even higher for another attempt.

Ig and Man Tran,

Concur. You do your research. You spend as much as you have to to meet your needs.

Pay too little and you have to buy a replacement when it doesn't meet your full needs. That first purchase was wasted money. Pay too much for something that has more bells and whistles than you'll ever use and the extra expense is wasted money.

Case in point, I started photography with a 35mm SLR that was given to me.

When it was time to upgrade I knew I wanted a NIKON. I knew it was the best that I could afford. I went to a reputable NYC photography shop. 2nd floor (they paid lower rent that way) Stools at the counters. Customers like to haggle at these shops. I was hoping to get a Nikon F body and maybe some more lenses. We're not getting anywhere. He asks me if I would consider a used camera. Let me take a look at it. It was absolutely mint and from the serial number I knew it was only a year old. The discount buying price for used made the deal. Written 90 day warrantee and an agreement between us that when I came back for more purchases I'd only deal with him.

A year or so later I bought a Vivitar 135mm lens thinking I could save some money instead of buying the Nikon version. I did save money and it was an excellent lens, but it focused in the opposite direction of Nikon lenses. The longer I used it, the more I came to hate it.

Buy the quality you need.

Writing words on a computer screen can make this seem like we’re pole vaulting over rat shit.

But let’s get clear here, just like we would if we were all sitting out on my deck watching the sun set on the Bay this evening.

I would say to you in a quick rebut of your overgeneralization ”everyone here” that it is unfounded.

It only takes one exception to it to be unfounded.

My exception isn’t some error in judgement by thinking “it fits when it doesn’t.”

Now all of this would have taken 45 seconds at most for me to say “LIVE” and perhaps a quick 15 seconds for you to own that you misspoke and that you didn’t really mean to say "everyone" at all.

Now that’s how “easy” relates here, not as some kind of caution to “ease up--- you’ve got it all wrong.”

No need for that.

And I am assuming my reply verifies that I am correctly standing my ground here.

That is all.

Again- Peace.

Hope you’re having a good sleep.

Re-posting the huge thread that MM posted.

Thank you so much for that MM. Took hours to read, paying attention to the cited sources.

It does make me think that if all these citizen journalists collaborated on a book it would be devastating. Hell if they only wrote own books, the compilations would be devastating.

It reads like a novel gone wrong. There is no hero, just a vast bungling conspiracy that goes further off-track the longer it exists.

We're not going to find out if any of these anti-heroes find redemption until the OIG reports start coming out.

If I was a redeemed anti-hero, I would already be writing my book. People will read those books to help figure out what was going on. I'd want to know where their fingers were pointing. Even without enough evidence or indictments, those people would be ruined in the eyes of the public.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

jim nj,

I think there are several heroes: General Flynn, Devin Nunes, Admiral Rogers, and of course President Trump.

One of the things that fascinates me about President Trump is his ability to attract people to enlist in the fight. I am not talking cabinet members or White House staff. I am talking about everyday people who put together web sites (like the Reddit guys), all of the investigative people I follow on Twitter, Diamond and Silk, etc.

One of the people I follow is a woman from NEW ZEALAND who is so inspired by the Trump presidency that she wants to emigrate and get citizenship! And you cannot tell me that the Italian election wasn't inspired by President Trump as well.

It's more than charisma or celebrity. I still haven't figured it out, but it is really amazing to watch.

And you are right - it would be a great novel.


Miss Marple,

Finally got through your AppThread Link with 249 tweets from early this morning. Took forever, but very interesting seeing all the characters involved. I'll never remember it all but worth a read to see the voluminous connections of all those evil conspirators.

I admire Richard Grenell so much. He was an early supporter of President Trump and stuck it out through all of the attacks during the campaign, including personal attacks on him because he is gay (from the tolerant left, of course).

Now the Never Trump gang has started mocking him, but people like Kurt Schlichter are standing up for him, which I am glad about.
Schilchter gives no quarter and will tell them off in his own inimitable style. If I remember correctly, Schlichter is the one who coinedthe term "Fredocons" for the people like Jeff Fllake and Bill Kristol.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I have learned from Wictor to look at actions and to think about what those actions mean.

Going back to the early days of the admiinistration, do you guys remember that a trip to the U was cancelled? Some excuse was given and it was said it would be rescheduled.
The anit-Trump people of course considered that it was a snub by the British government and also that Trump would be met by embarrassing protests, etc.

I don't think that was it at all. I think that President Trump discovered exactly how involved UK intelligence was with this entire Russian hoax. I think he has known for a long time.

May did come over here a few months ago, but it was a "business meeting" with little fanfare and few photos. I wonder if that was when he laid the evidence out before her.

Exactly. It took a long time to read, but it was well worth the effort. And all the citations. Monster effort.


The media are the megaphone, but these citizen journalists will bring down the media if they are right.

We kid each other about the ledge and the veranda. And we argue about the strategy and whether we want it now or in the bye and bye with ice cream on top.

Whether it's 4D chess, checkers or Mahjong. Or no strategy, but these people are discovering things that the media are just missing.

Are they fantasists? I don't think so. So much of what they find makes sense to me. Are they conspiratorial, hysterical people?
I don't think so.

Are they finding only what fits into their side of things? I don't think so.

So am I in the RG camp, or the OL camp?

I'm still in the RG camp, but I thank OL for keeping us grounded in the possibility that people are trying so hard to defeat us, that they still might.


Another exonerating bit of evidence for General Flynn:

Trump lawyers reveal previously unknown evidence in Michael Flynn case

New released E0mails show that there was evidence for Team Trump to conclude at the time that Flynn had not lied and was not still under Investigation, even as that weasel Comey and that shit Sally Yates refused to straight out say so.

Now, with the Trump lawyers' memo leaked to the New York Times, it seems clear that all the key players in the Flynn affair, including the president himself, were aware of the FBI's assessment in real time. And the president's knowledge — that the agents did not think Flynn lied, plus strong hints that the investigation was actually over — underlay Trump's Feb. 14, 2017, statement to Comey that, "I hope you can see your way to letting this go, to letting Flynn go."

The UK thing. I think I agree. We're certainly not giving them the usual deference in the "great Alliance."

Assad and North Korea.
I think one of the things Trump wants in an agreement is access to North Korea intelligence on all the other bad guys who dealt with the NoKos.

I think the talks between Trump and Kim will not be detail oriented. I think they will be conceptual, or visionary. If the the two of them get along and reach a mind-meld, so to speak, that NoKo intelligence would be invaluable to us.

If Trump and Kim feel good about each other, we've got a deal. Don't worry about how long the details will need to be worked out. The trust process will give us enormous amounts of information in the meantime.

I think Kim does want a deal and one of the ways to show us that he does is to give up other countries.

I wasn't specifically thinking about the intelligence chief, but, yeah, they are thinking about how much to trust us. Who better than their intelligence chief to figure that out.

And then we hear that the top 3 guys in the NoKo army have been replaced.

The media are the megaphone, but these citizen journalists will bring down the media if they are right.

Jim, I sure hope so.

When I read the Byron York piece at 04:48 about the newly released contemporaneous memo's from Trump's Legal Team written just before the time Trump asked Comey to go easy on General Flynn, it reinforces to me that Comey and Yates were engaging in the exact same thing that Halper and all the rest were doing---planting ideas in Team Trump's head that General Flynn was in the clear and not any longer under Investigation, so when Trump later comments on General Flynn to Comey, Comey can them scribble into his diary "Ah ha, Gotch'a! You bought hook, line and sinker what we wanted you to believe about Flynn. Now I'll portray your behavior, which was legitimately based upon what we led you to believe, as instead an example of you intentionally obstructing Justice by asking for special treatment for General Flynn since we're framing the both of you as Russian Colluding cronies."

That's exactly the sense I get out Comey, and it fits in with him having testified to Grassley and Gowdy that the Agents interviewing Flynn concluded Flynn was innocent, but now Comey hitting the TV Talk Show circuit with his book saying people were mistaken if that's what they thought they heard me say about General Flynn. What a dirty cop!

It's eye opening and beneficial to see how dirty these guys are, how they are all incestuously connected, and how they accomplish their dirty work.

Meanwhile, a bunch of blue check marks journalists are spinning a theory that Melania is either a victim of domestic abuse (possibly dead) and the White House is coering it up OR she has turned against Trump and has gone to Mueller.

Brian Stetler of CNN even has a graphic posted saying she hasn't been seen since May 10 (even though a CNBC reporter saw her in the White House a couple of days ago ).

Her appearance at the Gold Star Family Reception tonight? Fake and doesn't count because no press.

I am not exaggerating. These people are insane.

jim nj


That's my take on these things. They don't take you out with a direct attack, because that would require direct, correct evidence.

So they destroy you by poisoning people against you. Innuendo, gossip, etc. leaked to the the media, who can spin stories without further facts, except gossip, innuendo, etc.

And the media quiz officials who don't know what's going on. And the press accuse them of covering up

If someone could boil also this down to a board game, like Risk or Clue, we'd all be wise to this by now.

My wife, who watches those ABC dipshits, said something about Melania from out of nowhere yesterday, so I figured that pack of gossipy vermin is pushing a line of shit just like j0r's obsession with Puerto Rico having more deaths than the Black Book of Communism.

Both of the Splash Brothers are offspring of NBA players. Dell Curry was with the Cavs for a while; I think it's impossible to find somebody who had anything bad to say about him. Klay Thompson's dad, Mychal, was probably more highly regarded but I thought was hugely overrated and was fortunate enough to be a role player on Magic Johnson's teams.

It's probably curtains for the Cavs but they looked dead on the roadside after the first two Celtics games so we'll see. It would be nice if JR Smith decided to show up.

Raising children well interferes with being their friend, which so many parents seem to cherish. I have noticed though the stable adults it cultivates are quite friendly because of the respect created.
