Jane, I thought I read that while there are tight spots in the cave, the divers were getting through with their tanks.

My point was that I have dived with and taken classes from some Navy divers and some Rescue Divers and I have never encountered a group more careful of belts and suspenders and of every single minute detail than those folks. So I hope it was something else like a medical problem.

that gay US ambassador in Germany sure seems to be doing some good work, especially after all the socialists were so upset with him.

Tante Angela must be in quite a tizzy.

The Chinese news is also quite interesting. They have been leaking documents that purport that China wants to be able to fight the United States on an advantageous footing. Another tidbit was that they have fielded a very powerful rail gun on one of their ships. Hope they wired it properly cause a ground fault would be a bitch.

That the Chinese have successfully purchased container freight stations around the most key infrastructure in places like Panama and Long Beach has me worried and they now have a range of bases from Sri Lanka to Pakistan to Djibouti and looking for more. The Russians and Chinese are also deep into Venezuela now and may take over their oil assets in repayment for the loans they made.

A lot of global gamesmanship right now.

As for emojified female singers I nominate Joni Mitchell. Her stuff with Jaco Pastorius is amazing.

"Jane, I thought I read that while there are tight spots in the cave, the divers were getting through with their tanks."

OL,

It was pretty clear from the picture I saw there was an area that was too narrow for someone wearing a tank. I suppose it's possible that his body got stuck and he was carrying the tank.. The report I heard said he died from lack of oxygen. So who knows.

Near the bottom of this link you can see a graphic of the cave. Apparently they are 2.5 miles from safety.

Good Morning!

Rush in Hour 1 is channelling Captain Hate in his righteous anger at the maltreatment of Paul Manafort. It is nice to see Rush highlighting the abusive System that allows Mueller to get away with this injustice and it is good to know that Mueller and that system are being so publicly reviled on the airwaves. Rush, in addition to the Manafort incarceration, is also covering Mueller's fraud in indicting the Russian companies and then doing all the related back-peddling of not providing 'discovery' to Concord, and all the excuse making to the Judge who ought to throw the thing out since the Judge has told us he's fully aware of Mueller's dishonest intentions. That devolves into Rush then recounting Mueller's background of keeping the four innocent men in Jail in Massachusetts (re: The Whitey Bolger thing), for years while knowing they were innocent. Anyhow, good to wake up to that, and the only surprising thing is Mueller hasn't yet brought charges against Rush.

So I'll give a hat tip to Captain hate for this one. I don't know where Rush is picking up his anger but it's contagious.

Whew! Back from Kroger and I got about 2/3 of the car unloaded andput away. However, my knees are bothering me so I left the rest of the stuff in the car until my daughter get home and she can bring it in. I got all the perishables and frozen stuff in and put away.

Regarding Manafort - his lawyer filed some sort of grievance this morning which I will try to dig up. I think Byron York posted a section of it. While he is being kept in a solitary cell for his own safety, he is only allowed out 1 hour per day unless his lawyers show up to meet with him - and they are about 2 hours away by car. This sounds like crap to me.

matt,

When my ex-husband was still communicating with me 5 or so years ago, he let me know that he was running into Chinese all over Africa.

He is a mining engineer and had contract work in South Africa, the Congo, amd Zimbabwe. He said that they were all over those countries and they were very belligerent to other nationalities doing work.

I fail to see why port facilities should be allowed to be controlled by ANY foreign power, let alone China.

Oliver Snort!

the president* departed the rails briefly and went after George H.W. Bush for what was perhaps the most inoffensive and banal remark ever uttered by a sitting president.

“Thousand points of light. What does that mean? I know one thing. Make America Great Again we understand. Putting America first we understand. Thousand points of light, I never quite got that one. What the hell is that?”


Bush family retainers, and a number of people afflicted with common decency, went up the wall, as well they should. But I recalled that GHWB had pardoned everybody who could’ve tangled him up in the crimes of Iran-Contra on his way out of town in 1992. Surely, Poppy could have dropped some wisdom on the current president* on the subject of how to pardon your way out of trouble. Another opportunity lost.

Ralph the SOCCER team and it's coach had heard about DRUNKEN FRAT BOY MOB PARTY within this cave. Apparently it was supposed to be at the 2 MILE MARKER, so naturally the TEAM followed the trail of broken and smashed TV's, then took a left at the HEAVY SET CHICK ordering chicken wings on her cell phone. You know the girl, she's the one wihtout PEPPER SPRAY.
Apparently the UNIVERSITY of WISCONSIN had cancelled the PARTY, and by this time, global warming had caused the waters to RISE, thereby trapping the TEAM. Domino's was called to see if they could rescue the TEAM, but they were too busy filling pot holes in BEL AIR.

This could happen to ANYONE.

Gus,

I apologize if linking to Trump's former lawyer and someone who clearly stated he was personal friends with Manafort lawyer upset you so much. In hindsight, I realize linking that article made your point come across as absurd (that Manafort's bail was revoked and he was put in solitary confinement to coerce Manafort to testify against Trump). Please forgive me. I wasn't intentionally trying to embarrass you but I can see how you could view it that way.

Via catch-up, from Miss M's 09:27: Memos detail FBI’s ‘Hurry the F up pressure’ to probe Trump campaign

“That’s what Bill said,” Strzok wrote back, apparently referring to then-FBI chief of counterintelligence William Priestap. “I suggested we need to exchange our entire lists as we each have potential derogatory CI info the other doesn’t.” CI is short for confidential informants.

It’s an extraordinary exchange, if for no other reason than this: The very day after Trump wins the presidency, some top FBI officials are involved in the sort of gum-shoeing normally reserved for field agents, and their goal is to find derogatory information about someone who had worked for the president-elect.

HERE IS THE COMPLETE LIST: Dirty Cop Mueller’s Indictments and Where They Stand Today
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/07/here-is-the-complete-list-dirty-cop-muellers-indictments-and-where-they-stand-today/

Tom R

One concession I'll make to Tom: no matter how much he leans on him, I don't think Manafort has anything that he knows about Trump that would be useful to Mueller.

I came to the belief several months back. If you and I can piece together what facts we know and come to that conclusion, then you know good and well Mueller knows that as well. Once you accept that Mueller is probably not trying to squeeze Manafort to give up some dirt against Trump, you then have to come up with alternative explanations for what Mueller is doing. Putting the squeeze on the Podestas seems like a plausible explanation to me but based on Manafort's slimy background as a Swamp denizen there are probably a lot other possibilities as well.

GUS

Fernandinho and De Bruyne thus far for Belgium in the first half.

Captain Hate

Kudos to Rush for getting the word out on Manafort because his audience is huge compared to Ol' Yeller's. I haven't been shy on criticizing him in the past but this gets a thumbs up.

Back from the annual Ox Roast in Mesopotamia, Ohio. Some of the Amish girls working in the booths, and in the general store at the main intersection which is a really neat place, look a lot more healthy than the girls used to. I'm wondering if the local leaders figured out there was too much inbreeding going on and made a point of bringing in outsiders because these girls look attractive instead of visually appearing to have rickets. Definitely MAGA land in God's country on a cool summer day.

narciso

Sorry tamaleo, limone is still alive along with salvati, I think its more likely podesta and weber were used to target manafort.

Tom R

Someone on Twitter commented that the DOJ/FBI release of the new Strzok memos today was probably a warning signal to him prior to his appearance before Congress next week that the Trump DOJ/FBI has possession of everything he said, emailed, texted, etc

narciso

One of those is like pappas who died of a heart attack after sullivan, the connelly standin made him good for a certain hit.

Eye Doctor

Yeah Tommy boy, Manafort is sitting in prison because he won't give up Podesta. Oh brother.

Hey Tommy, maybe someone can get word to Mueller that if he wants Podesta he should raid Podesta's house and his attorneys office.

Captain Hate

Putting the squeeze on the Podestas seems like a plausible explanation to me but based on Manafort's slimy background as a Swamp denizen there are probably a lot other possibilities as well.

I'm only willing to concede what I've stated. After indicting a Russian company which didn't exist during the period scrutinized, Mueller could well be dumb enough to think Manafort really has something on DJT that he can force him to give up even though I, and I assume you, don't believe that to be the case.

I'm trying to avoid arguing with you, and recently haven't called you names, but this is one of the more plausible things you've stated imo. But I'll never sign off on how Manafort has been treated, even if he's as corrupt as you believe.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Don't know about anyone else but I am waiting for photographic proof of this 4D chest theory.

Here's Rush's long monolog where he defends Jim Jordan and then does the long impassioned rant explaining Manafort's predicament due to Mueller's corrupt Inspector Javert obsession: With Paul Manafort in Solitary, Deep State Targets Jim Jordan

It's long, but this bit way down in the rant explains why he's doing it:

RUSH: I am kind of going at a machine gun pace today. I’m repeating certain things to make sure you get it, but there’s a lot to get through here today. And I am so ticked off at some of this stuff that I’m finding it difficult to restrain my passion. When that always happens, I try to slow down and speak just a little more slowly.

But this Manafort thing just ticks me off, the Jim Jordan thing just ticks me off. They’re out there accusing us of this fascist stuff going on. These people pose the greatest threat to this country right now, these people inside our country. And I tell you, it’s not new. It’s almost like the sixties are being reborn here.

The only thing that hasn’t happened yet that happened in the sixties — and we’re on the verge of it — is a bunch of these radical leftists starting to blow things up...

Tom R

From the article someone linked earlier.

“Yes it’s normal, when someone like him can’t be in “gen pop” (general population) due to a separation order for safety,” white collar defense attorney and Law&Crime trial analyst Caroline Polisi said. “Prisons are so understaffed that there is just no way they could otherwise guarantee his safety if he were allowed to access the public areas of the facility, given the high profile nature of his case. … He’s not getting anything special just because he’s Paul Manafort. This is the way they’d do it for anyone else if they felt his safety was in question.”

Criminal defense attorney and Law&Crime trial analyst Julie Rendelman had a similar take.

“It is not unusual when a ‘celebrity’ or well known individual is incarcerated in a federal facility to be put in this type of confinement,” Rendelman said, “when there is concern for that individual’s safety i.e. another inmate might go after Manafort to make a name for themselves in the jail.”

Has anyone seen it stated anywhere that Manafort wants to be allowed to mingle with the general population but was denied?

Has there ever been any indication anywhere that Mueller wants to take down the Podestas?

Tom R

After indicting a Russian company which didn't exist during the period scrutinized, Mueller could well be dumb enough

You made a comment along these lines a few days back that I agreed with. Some of the things we are hearing about the Mueller SC investigation are so ridiculously dumb that it doesn't make any legal sense how someone could screw things up that badly.

The Deep State isn't dumb. They are evil, corrupt, ruthless, cruel, conniving, brutal etc. In a high profile case involving the President of the US how could a Deep State operative display such bumbling incompetence? Its almost like Mueller is intentionally trying to screw things up.

Eye Doctor

Yeah Tommy boy, now Mueller is intentionally looking like a crooked fool.

Yeah, that's the ticket.

Is that what you're doing?

Eye Doctor

He is so dumb he can't be Deep State defense.

New Thread.


You look at Mueller, or John Effin Kerry, or most of Congress and it is hard to refute the null hypothesis that the deep state is dumb as a post. Possibly as dumb as the turtle stranded atop the post.

daddy

I have a tough time thinking the many thousands of texts exchanged between Strzok and Page, illustrating their animus and collusion on a daily basis, was not dumb, but maybe they're not technically considered Deep State.

Captain Hate

Tom, I can only speculate so far and my head starts hurting. I'll just leave it that I'm very perplexed about what Mueller's up to because sloppy filings in a big money operation with experienced prosecutors, no matter what I think about their character, make no sense.

My guess is because Manafort is so far refusing to cooperate with Mueller and testify against the Podestas. Perhaps Manafort is in fear of his or his families life if he testified against the Podestas?
