GOOD NEWS ANECDOTE

Yesterday was heading to the BART (subway) station in Berkeley. All along downtown were freshly applied posters, stickers and signboards for some event sponsored by the RCP -- the Revolutionary Communist Party. This is in no way remarkable -- the RCP constantly plasters Berkeley with their posters and signs. You always see them everywhere. But here's where the story gets interesting:

As I got tot he BART station entrance, a mid-20s bearded white guy -- an obvious new recruit in the RCP cult -- was standing there handing out flyers to passersby, saying, "Come learn about socialism and how it's the REAL solution to our problems!"

Walking directly behind me were two tall Cal student boys who had been talking about the classes at UC Berkeley. Just as I passed the RCP dude and started down the stairs to the subway station, he again repeated to the group behind me, "Come learn about socialism and how it's the REAL solution to our problems!"

Guess what happened next? One of the Cal students yelled at the guy angrily, "FUCK socialism! FUCK communism! Communism is responsible for 100 million deaths since World War II! Get those fuckin' flyers out of my face!"

And the yelling continued as I made my way down to the train.

Made my day.

The tide is turning -- even in Berkeley. I have never ever EVER heard anyone talk back to the communist leafletters in Berkeley. Until yesterday.

mr: Gowdy wants to go back to being a prosecutor where you get results one way or another

Not THAT is funny!

So Gowdy is a Democrat? Their cabal wanted to get results one way or another.

Jack,

Grandson has made it through IU without succumbing to the brainwashing. It may be that he working towards a business degree with a concentration in sports marketing, rather than one of the sjw majors.

Granddaughter is doing well but her major is very touchy-feely and she is already liberal, so I figure she will be much worse when she graduates.

GUS

SBW, don't forget, GOWDY is a STAND UP GUY.

Why on earth anyone would think that is bizarre.

Stand up guy was sitting on his skinny ass on CBS Morning show, shitting on the country.

Paul Ryan follows suit. SWAMP meet SWAMP.

daddy: your 3:04 about all the new tech systems your company is transferring to and question 'why do I need it?'

Great questions. The changes are constant. I won't call them improvements -- things get more complicated. I still wish I had Windows 7 instead of 10. I wish I didn't have to submit things in Office 365 Microsoft 16 instead of Microsoft 2003. The menus, toolbar, options were easy and streamlined on '03. When I open 16 I sometimes get anxious just looking at all of the options. And, somehow I have two One Drives, one on my regular email a/c and one on an a/c I opened on Outlook -- and I don't remember opening but one. :(

I never had any kind of training for all of the programs, well, I did take a Lotus class one time at our community college, enrolled in another computer class and dropped out when we needed exponentiation, I must have sailed by that when I was in school. I went back to work part-time after our children were in college and the first attorney I worked for didn't have a computer, he still provided a word processor.

At home, my husband bought me a Tandy from Radio Shack and I started creating things. I've got an Underwood electric typewriter mind in a Microsoft (Ferrari) World. :)

Sometimes when the computer guys on here start talking about things, I'll think, I wish I could have gone to college and learned all of that (but we were paying for college for two children.)

And, yes, to all of you whizzes, some things are so much, much easier. I realize that. When I started working, I used to have to make six carbon copies, (reader's file, section's file, and men in the field or other departments) -- I became an expert at correcting typos. If something went to a vice-president, I used to get sick to my stomach trying not to make any errors.

Haven’t met a prog yet that didn’t think that with just a little more power they would succeed in making the world right.

Extraneus
(The Hill) […] Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.), however, said he felt that Priestap didn’t say anything that would indicate there was “political bias that motivated the Hillary Clinton email investigation.”

Priestap “completely” backed up everything that Comey said, according to a source familiar with his testimony.

Only three lawmakers — Jordan, Meadows and Krishnamoorthi — attended the hearing, which took place on the first day after a weeklong recess.

Priestap’s interview comes after the joint House investigation stalled for months after being first announced.

Jordan and Meadows can do a fine job of grilling Priestap and get all the information to Gowdy and Goodlatte.

Gowdy wants to go back to being a prosecutor where you get results...
He is fed up with the lying and double dealing and backstabbing Washington swamp.


Prosecutor Gowdy: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Spartenberg Jury, it's great to be back home in South Carolina, and I want you to punish these defendants here to the full extent of the Law by sentencing them to death by Injection.

Now it is true that the Defendants did not attempt to Un-Constitutionally conspire to overthrow the Election of a US President, nor did they Un-Constitutionally authorize illegal surveillance of American citizens for partisan personal benefit, nor did they Un-Constitutionally Leak the name of General Flynn and other Confidential information to the Media, nor did they Un-Constitutionally conspire to frame innocent Americans of treasonous charges, nor did they Un-Constiutionally lie to FISA Judges in order to get Warrants to spy on their fellow citizens, nor did they Un-Constitutionally exonerate a former Secretary of State from prosecution for multiple undeniable violations of America's Security Acts.

No, these Defendants didn't engage in any of those illegal behaviors, nor did they illegally hack into and steal the Top Secret servers of the House Democrats and funnel that information to Pakistani Counter Intelligence, a crime so monstrous that as head of the House Ethics and Oversight Committee I should have been the top person in the US Government demanding to know all about that instead of having to feign total ignorance to aide and abet the coverup of Congress's iniquities, but nonetheless, these Defendants didn't engage in any of those capital crimes so since they didn't I cannot afford to look the other way and pretend they simply acted to protect America like me and James Comey pretended to do when we were officials in Washington DC.

Therefore, now that I am thankfully back among you good people of South Carolina I don't have to deal with any of that pressure, so that is why I want the defendants here in front of you to get the Death Penalty, the full measure of Justice they deserve for the horrible crime they engaged in,---
the crime of robbing the Sak O' Suds in a mint green 1964 Buick Sky Lark lacking posi-traction!

Prosecuting perps is pretty cut and dried.

True, but that assumes the prosecution brings charges, and once that happens they put up evidence that doesn't get tossed out.

Not the least bit confident either will happen with the slimes in the DOJ or FBI.

Joan, confusion in the new technology? Too many options?

A couple things drive that.

One is the "feature checklist comparison" method of choosing. System integrators and analysts do that to make themselves look smart. Simple scheme, like asking kids if they want soda fountains in the back seat of the new family car. Everyone checks yes on everything, so the thing with the longest feature list wins.

Second, from above, usefulness of features never enters into the decision. The integrators / analysts bill more hours if they teach everyone everything. Then if something doesn't do anything, they bill even more to program around it.

Daddy's firm is stuck paying $ millions for #2 after paying $ millions on #1 to choose Office/360 over Google Apps (which is just as bloated). All so daddy can no longer check his email before transporting packages by flying them where they need to be. That little activity is not important to this project. Guarantee the idiot in charge at daddy's firm will get a bonus and become the next CIO somewhere else. That is the important part of the project. The idiot will then hire the same integrator / analyst at the new job. That is the other important part of the project.

I hate analysts / integrators. They are as useful as herpes in a girlfriend.

INSTEAD OF FALLING FOR FBI PERJURY TRAP, TRUMP SHOULD CUT DOJ AND FBI BUDGETS

The pernicious Trump “collusion” probe is a stupid waste of money and an unnecessary national embarrassment that will backfire on Democrats.

It is what the Russians wanted, and they knew we would overreact. Dems took the bait. They want the verdict now and the trial later. The whole thing is a conspiracy in search of some facts.

In reality, if you give the ex-FBI chief $15 million, a big all-Democrat donor staff, and all our laws-layered-upon-laws in America, they will get 90 percent of us guilty of something. This is what should worry us all, Democrats included.

Is this the legal system we want? One that indicts out of political vengeance with antiquated laws no one understands?

All the indictments have been handed to Mueller by a grand jury from Washington, D.C., made up of folks like those you see at your local bus stop … or at a Bernie Sanders rally … in a city that voted 91 percent in favor of Hillary. Trump would fare better being judged by two of his former Miss USA winners, whom he later said got fat.

Etc. :-)

Howie to Michael Doran (Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute, on the topic of the Secret Obama Deal to funnel 5.7 Billion to Iran via American Banks.

Howie: So we already gave them (The Iranian Mullahs)...$150 Billion, correct?

Doran: ...Many, many tens of Billions of dollars.

Howie: So what was the big deal about getting this $5.7 Billion if you have many tens of Billions of Dollars? Why was it worth it to the Obama Administration to lie to Congress to get the money to these, basically to these terrorists?

Doran: Because the Iranians were complaining that they were not seeing the Economic Benefits that they were expecting, and that in order to sell the deal at home in Iran they needed access to dollars, and so we saw John Kerry going out to Europe doing these road shows and trying to drum up business in Europe for Iran. This was sort of a secret connection of that effort.

Extraneus

You could be right about that, TK. Here's the piece from The Hill that he was basing it on:

http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/390908-house-gop-presses-top-fbi-official-on-strzoks-role-in-federal-probes

Lawmakers and congressional staff questioned Bill Priestap behind closed doors for several hours as part of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees' joint probe into the FBI's decisionmaking during the 2016 election.

Only three lawmakers — Jordan, Meadows and Krishnamoorthi — attended the hearing, which took place on the first day after a weeklong recess.

About learning to use computer programs, lots of times I find myself doing things on the right side of my brain instead of my left. And, that's not the way it's supposed to be. The right side is the arty, dreamy intuitive side, isn't it? I'll look it up in a minute. I think the left side is the 'hard facts', logical side.

I once had a book called 'Drawing On The Right Side of The Brain' and learned I could draw intricate things 'upside down' -- there was an illustration of a Chinese man, very elaborate. The author said, 'try and draw him', then a little later, she said, 'turn that picture upside down and draw him' -- when I did that, (of course with her instructions to relax, not worry, not trying to draw him correctly,) and turned my drawing right-side up, he was almost perfect. :) Eureka. Really fun book. Later, I read another book called 'Writing on The Right Side of The Brain.' It had fun exercises in it.

There's an Adobe Sharp program that I play with sometimes, and I couldn't tell you how to do it, but I've made some fun little videos using it -- and there weren't really instructions. I guess most were just sequencing -- maybe just a little logic there. :)

Lawfare:

The Manafort Tampering Allegations

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has accused Paul Manafort of attempted witness tampering. If the allegations are true, Manafort will have violated the conditions of his release and might have his bail revoked. Judge Amy Berman Jackson has scheduled a hearing on the matter for late next week.

I yield to no one in my disdain for President Trump. [Goes without saying, asshole, as is mine for you.] And I certainly have no brief for Manafort, who has been accused of laundering tens of millions of dollars from sources connected with Russia and the Ukraine. Thus my overall assessment is that Manafort has some significant legal exposure and that, given his role in the Trump presidential campaign, that exposure is of concern to Trump and of interest to the special counsel.

All that said, I think that the special counsel's allegations of witness tampering are rather ... thin. The FBI agent's declaration in support of the allegations is long on detail about what Manafort and the "Hapsburg Group" did before the elections and short on information about the tampering allegation itself. Drill down into the exhibits and you will see that only one, Exhibit N, is evidence of communications between Manafort and the witnesses he is alleged to have contacted in a tampering effort.

My F-15 boy from last trip was talking how he had some problem with the piddle packs on his last ferry Mission across the Pacific, and urine was all over the damn cockpit and smelled like hell upon landing Hickam hours and hours and hours later:)

A Blast Splash from the Past.

Air Force Report Concludes F-16 Crashed After Pilot Tried to Relieve Himself

The pilot of an Air Force F-16 was trying to urinate in a cockpit device when the $20-million plane went out of control at 28,000 feet and crashed at Palmdale Regional Airport in December, an Air Force report said Friday...

...Fisher put his jet on autopilot about 40 minutes into the flight, took the piddle pack from his flight suit pocket, unlatched his lap belt, "and began to raise himself up and forward in the ejection seat."

"He used his feet on the rudder pedals to help with this upward motion," the report said. Then, the jet began a "very aggressive and rapid" roll to the right and down. Fisher unsuccessfully fought to regain control of the falling jet, including turning off the autopilot, before ejecting...

...The single-engine, single-seat F-16C--a model the U.S. military used extensively in the Persian Gulf War--crashed and exploded 432 feet north of the passenger terminal at the small airport run by the city of Los Angeles in the Antelope Valley, the report said. The crash, shortly before 10 a.m., left a crater beside a runway.

Rollins: ...Ryan I'm sure has a sycophant staff around him saying Mr Speaker, Mr Speaker. I think it is very important for us to have an Ex-Speaker at this point in time...Any member can stand up on the Floor tomorrow in the conference and make a motion to Vacate The Chair...Republicans have to understand, I tell you this with 50 years of experience, they are in a war, a war like I've never seen. They can hold this Congress, they can expand a little bit, but only, only if they have some Leadership and they have someone out there who can lead them.

Text of Radio Address - Prayer on D-Day, June 6, 1944:
"My fellow Americans: Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest-until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violences of war.

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

And for us at home -- fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas -- whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them--help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.

Many people have urged that I call the Nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God
Amen

Only thing I can figure is that the Dems have pictures of Treytor with little boys and Paulie with little girls.

Otherwise, their behavior is inexplicable.
