An airliner flew into a violent thunderstorm and was soon swaying and bumping around the sky.

One very nervous lady happened to be sitting next to a clergyman and turned to him.. "Can't you do something?" she demanded angrily.

"I'm sorry ma'am," the reverend said gently, "I'm in sales, not management."

I don't have any citations before me but I read that before the infamous Miami FBI shootout a couple of agents were making a waitress sandwich and they either missed the shootout or missed the briefing.

Beasts,

My father told me this story 30-40 years ago. He worked as a loan officer for what became Citibank. One of his customers was a bar owner. The guy noticed that his take was off. So he's watching everything like a hawk. He looked over his inventory list for the last few months and consumption hadn't trailed off. Just the cash flow. So he knows somebody is skimming off the top, but he just can't figure it out, even though he's watching everyone like a hawk. He decides to call NCR to check out his cash registers. He arrives just as the tech is leaving and he asks him if there was anything wrong with the machine. Tech says no there both fine. Owner says I only have one register. Tech says no two, I'll show you the other one. Sure enough, there's a spare register.

He calls up the cops to pull a sting. They station a plainclothes officer there. Owner tells the bartender he'll be back in a few hours. As soon as the owner leaves, the bartender swaps out the registers and the cop arrests him.

Shinnecock is just a beast of a course. It looked like when the wind died down that guys were starting to scorch the course. Jordan Spieth made four straight birdies to get a stroke within the anticipated cut line and seemed dialed in but then bogied 17 & 18.

This came from Unintended Consequences by John Ross. I think the names of those agents weren't used to avoid a lawsuit.

There are other stories he relates that I feel are taken from real accounts like the ATF agent who stomped a kitten to death or the agents who left a family outside in cold weather in their underwear as well as their parrot who died from hypothermia.

Chapter 3, part 1

In this chapter, we provide an overview of the Midyear investigation. More specifically, we describe the referral and opening of the investigation, the staffing of the investigation by the Department and the FBI, and the investigative strategy.

Clinton never personally used an official State Department email account or State
Department-issued handheld device during her tenure, although there were official
State Department email accounts from which emails were sent on her behalf.

How they discovered the server. How they obtained the e-mails. All the ugly details we know about. State IG investigates and hands referral to the FBI.

The FBI predicated the opening of the investigation on the possible compromise of highly sensitive classified secure compartment-ed information(SCI). UNSUB

Despite the UNSUB designation, witnesses told us that a primary focus of the Midyear
investigation was on former Secretary Clinton’s intent in setting up and using
her private email server.

Initial briefing and staffing.

In addition, Lisa Page, who was Special Counsel to McCabe, became involved in the Midyear investigation after McCabe became the Deputy Director in February 2016. Page told the OIG that part of her function was to serve as a liaison between the Midyear team and McCabe. Page acknowledged that her role upset senior FBI officials, but told the OIG that McCabe relied on her to ensure that he had the information he needed to make decisions, without it being filtered through multiple layers of management.

At one point they provide a flow chart of who reports to who that indicates that Page by-passed several layers in reporting to McCabe.

Skipping over some stuff. Discussing briefings. How often. Who attended. Weekly or bi-weekly reports.

McCabe and Comey had daily meetings in the morning and afternoon which may have touched on MYE issues.

Strzok and Priestap made the day-to-day decisions, but McCabe and Comey were involved in the strategy end. The latter two made some of the decisions.

Discussion on the roles of senior DOJ officials, mostly hands-off, Yates kept informed.

The NSD and EDVA prosecutors told the OIG that they were concerned at various points during the Midyear investigation that there was a disparity between the involvement of Department and FBI leadership in discussions about investigative steps.

Lower level prosecutors worked with the FBI. They weren't there at the beginning, but were brought in a little later, at least 3 of them.

Discussion with several DOJ higher-ups on the whys and wherefores. Didn't want too many lawyers muddying the waters. Toscas primary lawyer. He had final(?) decision-making authority (implies that he had to report up, but not directed from above).

end- part 2 in awhile

"Subguns, you asked? As a matter of fact, the FBI did have two H&K MP5s in one of the cars. Problem was, the two agents that had them were busy double-teaming some broad at the restaurant where she worked. They didn't get their pants up in time to get to the gunfight."

..."I keep telling you, Henry. It's the biggest problem Rufus and I have doing our training courses. Cops get used to people doing whatever they tell them to. They get used to routine. That's why they are absolutely undone when they come up against someone that doesn't do what they're supposed to do."

"Tom, can you imagine what the FBI would have said if it had been the local Miami coppers that had gone after known, heavily armed killers, and left their vests and shotguns in the back seats of their cars, then rammed the suspects' vehicle to precipitate a hundred-forty-round gun battle in the middle of a residential neighborhood!"

If this is what happens when the feds go after a couple of bank robbers who know they're in the wrong, what's going to happen to the feds when they go after a couple million trained, motivated, heavily armed citizens who haven't done anything worse than exercise their Constitutional rights?

Chapter 3, Part 2

The Midyear team sought to determine whether any individuals were criminally liable
under the laws prohibiting the mishandling of classified information, which are summarized in Chapter Two. To do so, the team employed an investigative strategy that included three primary lines of inquiry: collection and examination of the emails that traversed former Secretary Clinton’s servers and other relevant evidence, interviews of relevant witnesses, and analysis of whether classified information was compromised by hostile cyber intrusions.

Discussion on how e-mails were collected including by searching other sources.

As described in Chapter Five, the Midyear team did not seek to obtain every device or the contents of every email account that it had reason to believe a classified email traversed.

Here's a good chuckle -
Witnesses stated that, due to what they perceived to be systemic problems with handling classified information at the State Department, to expand the investigation beyond former Secretary Clinton’s server systems and devices would have prolonged the investigation for years.
That's how good the security is at the State Department.

Looked at the e-mails and consulted elsewhere to determine if any were classified. Witness interviews helped them understand the system and where to look for more e-mails. They were able to find originators of e-mails and copies on other users PCs.

The team sought to assess whether Clinton or her attorneys deleted or directed the deletion of emails for an improper purpose, such as to avoid FOIA or Federal Records Act (FRA)
requirements.

The FBI also conducted intrusion analyses to determine whether any classified information had been compromised by domestic hostile actors or foreign adversaries. Agents and analysts specializing in forensics examined the servers, devices, and other evidence to assess whether unauthorized actors had attempted to log into, scan, or otherwise gain access to the email accounts on the servers and, if so, whether their efforts had been successful.
They also examined various FBI data-sets to assess whether emails containing classified information had been compromised.

I see no conclusion here.

THE BRIDGE

A man on his Harley was riding along a California beach when suddenly the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, God said, 'because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.'

The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want.'

God replied, 'Your request is materialistic; think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help man kind.'

The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally, he said, 'God, I
Wish that I , and all men, could understand women; I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, why she snaps and complains when I try to help, and how I can make a woman truly happy.

God replied: 'You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"

Pinandpuller

Other issues were brought up in the aftermath of the shooting. Despite being on the lookout for two violent felons who were known to use firearms during their crimes, only two of the FBI vehicles contained shotguns (in addition to Mireles, McNeill had a shotgun in his car, but was unable to reach it before or during the shootout), and none of the agents were armed with a rifle. Only two of the agents were wearing ballistic vests, and the armor they were wearing was standard light body armor, which is designed to protect against handgun rounds, not the .223 Remington rounds fired by Platt's Mini-14 rifle. While heavier armor providing protection against rifle rounds would normally have been hot and uncomfortable to wear on patrol in Miami's April climate, the agents, spending the day sitting in air conditioned vehicles on the lookout for a single target, were facing good conditions for its use.

The other six agents involved in the stakeout in five vehicles, who did not reach the shootout in time to participate, did have additional weaponry including Remington shotguns, Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine guns, and M16 rifles.

The big difference between the 1986 FBI shootout and Strzok and Page is which way the guns were pointing. The FBI can change overnight but only if there's a reasonable enough existential threat.

The ones I worked with were nice guys, but they were about as ignorant of street knowledge as the average citizen. They also, like many posters on Arfcom, believed the Hollywood rumors about handguns, i.e., that handguns are "deathrays", and anyone you shoot with one is DRT.

We live in an age of the minority mob. An odd expression, I know. Mob rule used to be an assertion of power through violence by the great unwashed, be it in the French Revolution or America’s racist deep south, when it lynched individuals.

It has been replaced by the no less illogical (and hardly less chilling) hysteria of a knot of activists who weaponise minority rights — they seem particularly obsessed with lavatories — and wield them as a political threat against the majority. More often than not, these agitators themselves are not part of the minorities that have allegedly been offended. They belong instead to a class of professional busybodies who seize on the minorities game for their own ends.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Two Johnson County parents may be stuck with a $132,000 bill after their child damaged a sculpture inside the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center.

The child’s mother, Sarah Goodman, told 41 Action News the incident happened during a wedding reception last month.

Surveillance video obtained by 41 Action News shows the child hug the sculpture, then seconds later, it fell.

The crazy reason the FBI didn't search the devices of Hillary Clinton's inner circle

The real answer is because they didn't want to look knowing they would find something, but here's the excuse they trotted out for the IG:

...for some reason, agents never searched the Blackberries or other email devices belonging to her inner circle at the State Department.

Horowitz and his team received a crazy response when they asked FBI agents on the Hillary Clinton email investigation why not...

...the agents thought that they might find so much classified information on unauthorized servers and systems that they would become lost in the maze.

Maybe it's just me but I'm beginning to think there may be just a tad less than 37,000 super-wonderful FBI Agents.

Daddy,

I agree they purposely restricted their search at the State Department because they already knew it was a cesspool for mishandled classified intelligence.

Which means to me, that the FBI should have investigated the State Department much, much earlier.

Which also means to me, that Clinton set the tone for that, or it was already ingrained.

How can a secretary of any department set up their own private server without push-back?

Were they afraid of her? Or so unconcerned about mishandling classified information that they took no offense?

It begs the question of just how important does the State Department think itself.

What they're the permanent government?

Chris Farrell to Lou Dobbs on Agent Number 2 in the IG Report:

Farrell: ...and then lastly there is a startling admission by the character who's named as Attorney Number 2, where he says that there are Legal Documents, with his name all over the Legal documents, investigating President Trump's Staff, and that E-Mail or text was written a day after the Election. This is a "Stop the Presses" moment. You've got the President of the United States, Obama, wrapped up in the investigation according to Lisa Page, and you've got an FBI Attorney talking about how he was investigating the President (Elects) Staff the day after the Election.

Lou: The reason Chris Farrell here is referring to the Agent as Attorney Number 2, is because his name is not revealed in that document.

Farrell: Which is offensive at face value. The American Public deserves to know the name of every single one of these characters.

It's my intention to continue to condense these OIG report chapters. At the very least I intend to read the whole thing.

It's hard to condense and I have to leave out some stuff. Some of it may be important, but, Readers Digest, you know.

I'd like to see more judgement, more speculation, but it's a fact report, and as you read, and in my case, re-read it, it's really clear that certain things are alluded to, but not explained.

I think it's important, not because it explains things, but because it sets a base for discussion.

So far, journalists and citizen journalists, not in the thrall of the MSM are doing a good job of picking this apart.

You have to be willfully obtuse, like the MSM, not to grasp how damaging this report is.

And while it's recommendations are pablum, it doesn't argue against re-opening the investigation on it's original lines or on alternative lines.

While it accepts that there was no criminal intent, that may not be enough. I think the better approach is to look at the cover-up.

I acknowledge those who think that criminal intent isn't needed to indict, but suggest that the conspiracy after the revelation of the server is more fertile ground.

The part of the IG that really frosts me is the "directly connecting" statement. Horowitz sets forth plenty of circumstantial evidence that political considerations affected the Clinton probe. Plenty of people go to the hoosegow on the basis of circumstantial evidence. When Horowitz penned or pixelled his "directly connecting" statement, he should then have referred to the circumstantial evidence.

You have to be willfully obtuse, like the MSM, not to grasp how damaging this report is.

Particularly to the MFM, who paid or otherwise bribed leakers within the FBI. There's no way to put a positive spin on that so they'll just ignore it. If the MFM operated at anything close to the ethical level they forever claim for themselves, there would be mass firings for this. But their ability to self police is nonexistent.

Levin last night said the head US Attorney in DC, a recent female appointment named Liu iirc, should empanel a grand jury to examine the rot in the FBI. And that what Sessions has empaneled in Utah is too slow moving and ill defined in its mission to adequately address the real problems in the report.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

rse,

Are they going to sell on eBay? Here is my advice:

Using advanced search on eBay, look at what comparable items have sold for, NOT what people are asking.

Then, list the items as "fixed price or make offer". I rarely did auctions after I got started, because you had no control over the price.

They will need a Paypal account. They also should visit the Post Office web site and order free shipping boxes for Priority Mail. (Never send anything parcel post.)

The procedure for a sale would be the following:

1. Photograph and measure the item (some customers will ask things like skirt length).

2. WEIGH the item. The weight plus the weight of the box will be what the USPS charges for shipping.

3. Price the item, adding approximate shipping cost into the price so that it can be listed as FREE SHIPPING.

4. List the item through eBay's program. (There is a company I used for formatting listings, but I did 30 or so per week and I assume they wouldn't want to pay for this service unless they expand).

5. Br prepared to answer questions. One of them should check the account every day at least once.

6. When an item sells, ship within 24 hours. eBay did have a way to print off shipping labels and pay the post office directly out of your Paypal Account in a seamless operation. Then you just cut out the shipping label and tape it to the package. The customer is notified when you print the shipping label that the package is shipping, so don't print the label and have it laying around for a day or so. There is a tracking number which the customer can enter with the post office to see where the package is.

Once they get the hang of it, it's pretty easy and should generate some income for them.

I just did an advanced search (upper right corner of home page in small letters next to the big search button) on SOLD items under the words St John knit. This list is only items sold, so I don't know out of how many listed these sales occurred. However, you can see some sold for a pretty good price, particularly jackets:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=St+John+knit&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=0&LH_Sold=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=15&_stpos=46142&_sargn=-1%26saslc%3D1&_salic=1&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_ipg=50&LH_Complete=1&_fosrp=1

You can schedule a pick-up at your home. That is what I used to do. It alerts your carrier that there is a package, and if you have printed out the shipping label the postage has already been paid through the Paypal account, so you just tell the Post Office (through their web site) ow many packages you have and where they wiill be located. You can say "on front porch" for example. Saves time and money!

Better?
Better.

That's a good observation by Sundance.

4. I've read and highlighted 400 pages of the IG Horowitz report so far...

5. ...and I cannot find a single factual citation that anyone on the Mid-Year-Team actually went through the Huma Abedin/Anthony Weiner laptop and read or reviewed the Clinton emails.

Jack is Back!

Taking Elliott down to Lake Agawam for the shuttle to Shinnecock. Mrs. JiB and I are going later for the 11:30 tee time of Phil and Beef Johnston. That is going to draw the big crowds before the leaders 3 hours later. Wind is out of the N by NW today at around 10mph at 8:40 in the morning. Expecting to pick up later. Greens are going to be fast and furious and it will take something monumental to overcome DJ, unless he folds like in the past but from what I am seeing, that is behind him.

Cloudless, bright day so far.

And for those chasing DJ, an apropos Latin Phrase of the Day:

Numquam periculum sine periculo vincemus

Extraneus

From p.324:

By no later than September 29, the FBI had learned virtually every fact that was cited by the FBI in late October as justification for obtaining the search warrant for the Weiner laptop, including that the laptop contained:

 Over 340,000 emails, some of which were from domains associated
with Clinton, including state.gov, clintonfoundation.org,
clintonemail.com, and hillaryclinton.com;

 Numerous emails between Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin;

 An unknown number of BlackBerry communications on the laptop,
including one or more messages between Abedin and Clinton,
indicating the possibility that the laptop contained communications
from the early months of Clinton’s tenure;178 and

 Emails dated beginning in 2007 and covering the entire period of
Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.

Probably all of the missing emails and more.

Anyone know what ever happened to the Weiner laptop or if it's hard drive image still exists?

No bias.


A WAR IS COMING.

Extraneus,

I have no idea. I am afraid it's in that huge landfill near NYC.

Was it two or three years ago at that weird course in Wisconsin that he was putting for the 72 hole win and ended up being out of the playoffs? I think he learned a big lesson from that.

Merkel is the poster child for what can go wrong when your parents live in a democratic country and choose to immigrate to a commie country.

Adds a whole new dimension to "Lutheran Liberal".

Remember when Armitage the Plame leaker called a witness and coached him on what to say and Fitzpatrick had no problem with any of that?

The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their horrible and cruel legislative agenda. Any Immigration Bill MUST HAVE full funding for the Wall, end Catch & Release, Visa Lottery and Chain, and go to Merit Based Immigration. Go for it! WIN!

=============================
The President retweeted his own tweet on the immigration bill from yesterday, so I am reporting it as I assume he wants to make sure interested parties in Congress see it and pay attention.

The Horde was confused yesterday regarding DJT's intentions on the latest Repuke Amigo Grande sellout. I really wish he'd start targeting Tom Donohue and Mike Fernandez as enemies of the country because the sooner those donor class scum are rejected the better.

These people really are unhinged. A similar book about Barack Obama did not engender these types of complaints.

Having worked book fairs for the PTA for years, I can tell you that there were also biographies about EVERY new president. They are factual, full of pictures, and innocuous.

Furthermore, the book is for sale to interested parties, not required reading.

Speaking of eBay, I thought car aficianados would find this interesting.
