JimmyK, your post on the previous thread about Page's remarks in IG report about l'affaire Strzok-Page: "The predominant reason that we communicated on our work phones was because we were trying to keep our affair a secret from our spouses."

Who says 'predominant reason' about love or sex? I know these aren't normal or 'regular' people, but wouldn't you say, 'the main reason....' ??

Gawd, where did all these repulsive people come from!



Tom R

Repost from last thread...

It is not necessary to believe that (a) women shouldn’t be fighter pilots, in order to believe (b) lowering standards for the sake of quotas is a bad idea. Of course, you may believe both (a) and (b), but it is (b) that gets people killed.

Affirmative action quotas in military promotion boards are one of the worst kept secrets at the Pentagon. Its been DOD policy for decades.

Military promotions boards work something like this. 1000 candidates are eligible for promotion to the next rank. Only 60% will get promoted. The promotion board reviews all the personnel records, performance reports, etc and ranks everyone 1-1000. After they get the initial ranking they look at the race and gender of the top 600. If the top 600 don't have enough minorities and females in it, then the promotion board adjusts the rankings and moves someone who was originally ranked 601-1000 up at the expense of a white male officer who was in the original top 600.

Promotion boards are conducted under a shroud of secrecy and the board members will get punished if they violate the NDA and divulge how the quota system works.


Ask asians how that works at Harvard.

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

The treatment cured her!

A woman went to the emergency room where she was seen by a young, new doctor.

After about 3 minutes in the examination room the doctor told her she was pregnant.

She burst out of the room and ran down the corridor screaming.

An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was.

After listening to her story he calmed her down and sat her in another room.

Then the doctor marched down the hallway to the first doctor's room.

"What the hell's wrong with you?" he demanded.

"This woman is 68 years old, she has two grown children and several grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?!!"

The new doctor continued to write on his clipboard and without looking up said:

"Does she still have the hiccups?"

The Latin phrase quis custodiet ipsos custodies (which I believe JiB used in one of his Latin quizzes) becomes more relevant than ever. Who will monitor the face/GPS/social media/scanner monitors? Especially since the monitors are likely to have agendas similar to the agendas of the investigators in Horowitz's report.

Tom R wants you to believe that the slow walking of this is a good thing.

De Bruyne to Lukaku goal Belgium FANTASTIC.


Can someone explain Dave's 11:49, or maybe there's nothing to explain?

Go long face masks burkas.

Fixed. Though you were probably already long burkas.


Lukaku scores again for Belgium.

jimmyk, the AI's on Person of Interest used facial scans to identify everyone like in that screen shot representation.


Who says 'predominant reason' about love or sex?

Good point. Also, after I posted my comment I had some sense that there have been comic scenes where someone falsely claims, Jon Lovitz-style, to be having an affair to cover up a more serious crime. "I was . . . um, having an affair, yeah, that's the ticket! I was with Lola in Vegas, so I couldn't have murdered Vinnie in Jersey."


Thanks, CH, forgot that. I know PoI was much-discussed here, but I think I only saw one episode years ago.

Jim Eagle


We are having a Belgium watching party. Mrs. JiB, Frederick, the Beagles and me:) 3-0. Lukaku has 2 of them but Dries Mertens rocket volley into the top left corner was a beauty. Hazard and DeBruyne controlling the field. Now Hazard's younger brother is coming on.


Also, as someone pointed out on Althouse, if that was only the "predominant reason," what were the other reasons?


Jack, I'm a big De Bruyne fan. Not only is he a great passer and extremely unselfish player, but he is a really good man. Lukaku is a beast. Lukaku could have 4 by now. Belgium is a threat this year.

Jane asked me about Phil hitting the moving ball on No. 13 yesterday and I posted my answer accidently on that thread, so here it is:)


I know that hole position on 13. If Phil had not stopped that putt, it would have rolled down into the closely mown area but would also take a strong left hand turn to end up behind the front right bunker. That would have mean't Phil would have to hit a flop shot over the bunker and leave it below the hole. Even for a magician like Phil it would have been a 100-1 shot and if pulled it off would most likely be above the hole and further away. Then he would have a more difficult putt.

It took him 5 more holes to come up the excuse he used. John Daly was DQ for a similar action but Phil is a marquee player and no way was the USGA going to disappoint the rowdy but Phil loving New York fans. It may have been different if Tiger was still playing because at least they would have him shore up the crowds."

[UCONN] Muslim professor made students remove shoes, praise Allah before entering office

Felix Coe, a former professor of biology at the public university, was seen berating a female student for not removing her shoes before addressing him in his office, according to a video posted last week by Jihad Watch.

“Take your shoes off,” Mr. Coe barked at the student.

“Why?” she asked.

“Then get the hell out of here. I don’t want to see you,” Mr. Coe responded.

“I am a Muslim,” he later explained. “You don’t come into my office with dirty shoes. That’s a curse.”


In the same video, two men confront Mr. Coe in his office and ask why he required students to follow such rituals.

“I wanted to know why these [signs] are necessary,” one of the men asked Mr. Coe. “Why would a student have to take their shoes off? Why would they have to say [Bismillah]?”

Mr. Coe responded, “Because I am a Muslim and I don’t want them coming in my office with dirty shoes.”

“This is your office, this is not a prayer place,” the man argued.

At one point in the video, Mr. Coe tried to grab the other man’s recording device as he tried to escort them out of his office.

“Don’t touch,” the man fired back.

The university told Campus Reform that Mr. Coe retired since the video was taken in December and that the signs were taken down as soon as they were made aware of the issue.

Video, too.


HUD to evict union from office space.

Officials at the Housing and Urban Development Department told federal employee unions last week that they must vacate government-provided office space by mid-July, a move that union officials say is an attempt to undermine collective bargaining negotiations.



I saw that story EXT. If FELIX had tried to take my recording device, he would have RETIRED on the spot.

Hillary Clinton: Gun Control a ‘Political Necessity’

While speaking to a group of activists in San Francisco, Hillary Clinton stressed that gun control is a “political necessity” and part of “taking back” the country.

This helps explain the hysteria by Trump's enemies over the border family separation kerfuffle.



What time does the Horowitz hearing start?


Good Morning!

Rush in Hour 2 monolog having the courage to call out Laura Bush for selective outrage. El Rushbo is going headfirst and unapologetically into the manufactured smear of Trump and Republicans as racist separators of illegal immigrant kids from their illegal immigrant parents.

I'm usually 100% in the USGA's corner on how they make playing the Open a very arduous experience but there was something really wrong in how they tricked out Shinnecock over the weekend to the point that I didn't watch the end. I've never seen DJ look so clueless as he was on the greens for the last two rounds and his idiot brother flitting around like Tinker Bell on meth didn't improve the image.

It starts at 2:00 Eastern.

Sundance has 3 live stream links available here:



Read the AT article by Wauck (A Guide To Spygate)--Strzok's spin will be clear if you read Wauck's account of the process today at American Thinker. He will say the informants were part of a normal preliminary investigation done without the need for warrants and the lawyers, not he, are responsible for any misrepresentations in the FISA applications.

Thanks, Clarice. Reposting this because I found it such worthwhile reading.

Kevlar Kid

clarice posted the Breitbart article about the Holder plant in the Mueller investigative process from Justice.

it seems that Comey is the poisonous tree which launched Mueller in the first place. Sessions' recusal was ESSENTIAL to having another DOJ LIFER (Rosita) be Mueller's inside man at Justice.

Eric Holder planted "Tash" in the Department of Justice during his tenure there. This smells like Obama/Clinton (Holder arranged the Marc Rich pardon) control of the process at high leverage points.

that the IG separated Comey's lawlessness from a)his firing and, b) the resultant imposition of a special counsel, while c)substituting "bias influencing the investigation" as a main concern for posers like Trey Gowdy, table-pounding Ryan and the Alphabet Media to lap up---


it's enough to keep anti-Trump public opinion in place long enough to move the needle in November toward Dems favor in the House, and facilitates BURYING the damning facts behind a goofy, ambiguous obfuscation like "bias."

(Everything human beings do has bias in it. STFW?)

also, it is not a surprise that McConnell and Clapper (Deep State assets) are calling for the Mueller investigation to shut down: they are expecting (incorrectly) a Blue Takeover of the HOR....and they will definitely be calling for the SC to be shut down. They will no longer need it.

Even if Mueller decides now to wrap up the investigation, he's wired a time-eating ploy into the process with the Russian company indictments and his foolishness re discovery.

Mueller will say "I'm trying to wrap it up but the process must go on until finer issues get resolved by the courts."

All of that chicanery and lawlessness will keep the Blue base thinking "Where there is smoke there is fire" like they do now... right up to election day.

If Blue takes the HOR, Mueller goes away.

The previous (insert Dionysian term here) is how i am looking at just one side of this political infection at the Department of Justice.

I'd be interested to read more about the other side of the disease signature, such as "10 Things AG Sessions must do RIGHT (THE F*CK!) NOW.

Haven't seen any links to this effect.....the "bias! no-bias!" chatter is deafening as the FIX takes hold.


It starts at 2:00 Eastern.

Let the grandstanding begin!

What are the odds Horowitz actually gets challenged and pushed to answer real questions?


The OIG is infected by a far more dangerous disease than political bias — fear.

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow such a disaster.

In other words, the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General is filled with people who fear the FBI. Think about that for a minute. What is the usual term for a government whose members live in fear of its police arm? Ronald Reagan famously said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” The OIG report suggests that its demise may be only one election away.


How did DEEP STATE get SESSIONS to recuse?

Seems to me SESSIONS was VIRTUE SIGNALING to his and our own detriment.

How do we know that the kids being detained are the biological children of the claimed parents? I ask because when they try to reunite the detained kiddies with their loving parents, they can't be found. I know as a parent I wouldn't do anything else in life until we were again together. It doesn't add up.

matt - deplore m if you must

Unfortunately I have a meeting shortly and will miss the England match. So far it sure is interesting. I don't know if the upsets so far will affect the end result, but it has been a heck of a start.

We were in the LA garment district, which is deserted except for hipster restaurants (foodie child #2's choice)and there would be a big boom every few minutes and Mexican flags were everywhere after they knocked off Germany.

Here you go, Beasts.


“We will not apologize for the job we do or for the job law enforcement does, for doing the job that the American people expect us to do,” Nielsen said during her Monday address to National Sheriffs’ Association in New Orleans. “Illegal actions have and must have consequences. No more free passes, no more get-out-of-jail-free cards.”


From October 2017 to this February, we have seen a staggering 315 percent increase in illegal aliens fraudulently using children to pose as family units to gain entry into this country,” she said. “This must stop. All this does is put the children at risk. To address these issues we’ve asked Congress to change the law to allow for the expeditious return of unaccompanied children, regardless of their country of origin. We are also asking Congress to allow us to keep families together while they are detained.”


Horowitz did not say there was no political bias. He said there was no documentary evidence showing political bias. A big difference that at least Ryan and Gowdy got.

Beasts of England

I think I follow you, GUS, but I'll reiterate - all the Mexicans I know are family-oriented. Bigly. It doesn't make sense that they wouldn't retrieve their kids. Something's fishy.

Eye Doctor

Jane that's horseshit.

There is evidence! Horowitz is just glossing and suppressing it.


He said there was no documentary evidence showing political bias.

How could the Srzok text to Page saying "We'll stop it" be anything other than documentary evidence of bias? Do they actually have to write "We are doing this because we hate Trump" on a memo about a particular course of action before the IG calls it documentary evidence?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I had the first live feed Sundance linked on, and lo and behold, there was Hillary, invoking compassion and accusing Trump of cruelty to children.

This has been planned for some time. She had a prepared speech all set up.

Grassley starts with a bang, Comey out of country except I saw that he was in Iowa this weekend. Hope he's having a good time! HEH


According to the NR piece at 2:01, "stays last between twelve and 36 hours." That's what all the fuss is about? Separations that last for a day or so?

Tom R

If the kids getting detained at the border are not the children of the detained adults then where did they come from? Are adults buying/renting these kids from orphanages until they get across the border and then once inside the US sending them back to the orphanage or even worse abandoning them?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Grassley going after the double standard.

Thanks, henry - I will expand my comment to include people from Latin America in general.

Feinstein leads with "no evidence of bias"

thus turning the hearing into a train wreck.


DIFI peddling her line of bullshit right outta the chute.


Kids coming across the border not with real parents hmm. I wonder how much is linked to the pedophile racket?


If there was no political bias then obviously there would also be "no documentary evidence showing political bias".

That's not documentary evidence a knife


Republican Congressman from California upset about inhumane conditions for children at border.

How much is he paid and how many staff does he have? Still, he does no research before opening mouth.


All of the above, Tom R.

Some kids are basically human shields. Some are kidnapped. Some are being transported by coyotes at the cost of thousands to their parents back home in wherever country. Some, I assume, are actually children or at least relatives of the adults they are traveling with.

We can't detain them together because we can't verify they are the children of the people claiming to be their parents. What if they are sex trafficking victims?


He said there was no documentary evidence showing political bias.

No, he said he had no documentary or "testamentary" evidence that their obviously extreme bias was responsible for their decisions.

No one said, "I just used the bogus dossier to convince my buddy Rudy to give us a FISA on that motherfucker," because that might have given a false impression of impropriety.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

This is the continues twisting of the truth by DiFi.

I am afraid this hearing will be useless.

Horowitz will be bland, and I fear we will see a replay of Wray's less-than-stellar PR campaign for the FBI.

Personally, I want the FBI reformed. This would include firing ANYONE who spoke to the press whether from a political grudge or for bribes.

I also want all interviews recorded. I want those 2 Ted Stevens prosecutors fired and disbarred.

It is obvious to me that Bill Clinton got a lot of people embedded into both the DOJ and the FBI. When Bush came along, his AG's ere preoccupied witht he War onterror and didn't pay attention to these moles. Once Obama got in, they forced out the Bushpeople and hired leftists in all positions from janitor to AG.

I am outraged about these agencies and I want to see some firings immediately.

Kids between the ages of 12 - 19 make good mules.

This entire issue has a cartel angle to it. "Violence and crime" are usually reasons given as to why "people want to come here" from MexxyCorp and "Latin" America.

Remittances sent back from "hard working" immigrant isn't the only river of money flowing out of the US back to Mexico and other narco-run States.

Here's a newsflash: Kamala Harris and Bercerra's catch and release programs of criminals is a bow to the narcotraficantes seeking control of California through other means. Lenient enforcement of laws and codes HELPS narco traffickers.

Case in point: my home zone of Hayward/San Lorenzo CA. in some single family dwellings there are as many as 8 families in a ticky tacky 1950s home at one time. That is against conventional housing laws. But now? much of the lower rent neighborhoods remind me of 1960s Tijuana (when we used to travel there when visiting relatives in San Diego).

500 miles north of Baja. Landing site for going into the Four Directions and infest other local economies and expand narco influence. The fugitives are continued marks for narcos to lean on to carry out menial tasks (and even murder) to further the expansion of narco influence and empire.

"Take back the country" Hillary? Lying sac. Continue to the undoing of the Republic is more like it. "It's broken and we're the ones to fix it."

Sadly, the hearings coming out of the IG report release are predictable time burners Deep State is calculating will run out the clock without any decisive actions by Justice against any of these players and dupes.

That explains a lot about Strozk making the same claim Charlie Manson made during his trial "No one knows me as a person."

I worked with a guy whose first wife was Guatemalan. She ended up going back and telling him to raise the kids here. She was more interested in a Romeo from la puebla.

And the statute of limitations is passed.

OTOH I was at Tractor Supply and I saw a family of eight get in an extra cab Frontier. Not one over 5'5" kids from 2-12. And they had a 20# propane bottle in the back for good measure.

Orrin Hatch is letting Wray have it.


Comey refuses to testify to Congress, McCabe pleads Fifth Amendment: Grassley

Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Sen. Charles E. Grassley said.

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation.

Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Mr. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey was in Iowa over the weekend, visiting a key state in presidential campaigning.

“He has time for book tours and television interview, but apparently no time to assist this committee,” said Mr. Grassley, an Iowa Republican.

He said he had sought to compel the three to show up to testify, but Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, blocked him. Under committee rules, the ranking Democrat must agree with the chairman in order to issue a subpoena.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

You know, the tone deafness of Wray continues. They are going to have TRAINING.

How hard is it to know that you are being biased because YOU HATE DONALD TRUMP?

How many people are going to be FIRED? That is what I want to know.

I am so mad that I don't even know how to leave a decent comment about this.

From the celebrity post-suicide watch:

"Suicide is the tragic, but reasonable response to being confronted by life’s reality with no salve of deeper meaning to bandage the wound. This is why a life without God, no matter how grand, will always leave our hearts unfulfilled.

So please, take medication. Talk to your family. Go get treatment. Your life is precious to God and the people around you. It is worth fighting for. But no matter what help those things bring, our hearts only find true peace when they live for the one who created them. I wish my friends Kate and Anthony had felt that peace."



"If there was no political bias then obviously there would also be "no documentary evidence showing political bias"."

Yes, and if there was political bias it is also possible to have no documentary evidence of it. I don't think they consider a text message to be a document. I;m not defending them, I just see the report as something different than you do.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


I was glad Orrin said that. I also like it that he pointed out that there was so much bias in this small group, what would they find if they investigated the whole department? (Good point, as I think they have been screening for leftism for the last 8 years).

Fairly certain the bombshell text from Strzok was always part of the IG report. It just wasn’t made public until the IG report was formally released. Since that bombshell text can be used as evidence in a criminal trial it was almost certainly not provided to Congress with the original batch of text messages that we have known about for months because Trump and his team did not want the info getting leaked to the public yet.


Won't answer any questions because the investigation is ongoing.

Probably be ongoing as long as it takes for people to forget about it
