In 1907, The University of Chicago was a football powerhouse under Amos Alonzo Stagg. They were also vegetarians were their famous cheer was "Sweet potatoes, rutabagas, sauerkraut, squash!"

Must have been a gassy huddle.

The latest mission impossible is deep in the deep state dynamic, practically no one is who they seem, except Ethan hunt, and Alex Baldwin pretends to be noble, his best acting since red october.

Dave, LOL

Tom R

Mueller requests another delay in Flynn sentencing.

The last film, suggested what happens when the operators from a dozen agencies slip their leash and wreak havoc on a global scale, 'because they just want to see the whole world burn to cite another film.

If anyone is interested, there is a ST marathon on Starz. Currently just starting The Search for Spock.

And verdicts in the Manafort trial.

How can they not start with wrath of Khan, what kind of network are they running here?

narciso

Why did they pick alpha bank, because compared to sberbank the equivalent of Deutsch bank it's a piggy bank,

Extraneus

Strange ruling, Clarice. I mean, wasn't Steele a foreigner attacking the very foundations of our democracy, as it were? Now he was simply acting “in furtherance of the right of advocacy on issues of public interest”?

What's the difference between him and a Russian with a Facebook account?

(Judge was a GWB appointee, btw.)

If you want to launder money you do it through that one of renaissance capital, but guess whose paws stick in that instance?

They started with ST 1 - the Motion Picture. I just found it doing a guide search for anything to watch (background noise) whilst working.

Dave (in MA)

Looks like he won't be getting 300 years.

That's one ok, I saw it on a plane with out sound, consider what a trip.

Alpha Bank can certainly appeal.

It really does make me feel like they bit the right level of cynicism, there is a character in this film, that reminds me of the awans of mifsud.

Guilt on 1 count of FBFA

Are you informed by Sundance? Is that the barometer?

Marlene

Guilty on 8 counts.

Manafort convicted on 8 of 18 counts.

So does Mueller now squeeze Manafort for Podesta?

Jim Eagle

Manafort = Al Capone. Yawn.

jimmyk

Mistrial on 10 counts. Could he be retried? I'm sure Mueller would want to.

Frau Wieselchen

"Tommy boy" = SOB guaranteed


clarice feldman

He could be retried on those 10 but I don't think they'll do that.

Jim Eagle

Mueller needs to shtut it down. Every verdict is before Trump. What a waste of taxpayer money. But fat pigs like Cavuto are happy as being in a pile of mud shit.

Eye Doctor

Tommy boy

Was it Trump's 4d idea to go after Manafort?

Captain Hate

Has anyone ever read, or started to read and put it down in disgust, a book titled Geek Love by Katherine Dunn? There's a member of my book group, a really pathetic closeted queen, who has been shilling for this disgusting waste of words for literally decades. We finally agreed on it just to shut him up and I didn't even make it to page 20 before I got sick of wasting my time on it. If the concept of a carney family deliberately having deformed offspring through drugs and radiation while pregnant to have them star in a freak show seems like a good idea to you...

I'm glad I have until Saturday to gather my thoughts on why I'm not enduring this.

Eye Doctor

So be it, Frau

narciso

Didn't they charge delay with similar Bunkum reversed on appeal, similar with Stevens but didn't come soon enough to save his life.

Frau Wieselchen

Hogg/Occasional-Cortex in the future?

Captain Hate

Mistrial on 10 counts. Could he be retried? I'm sure Mueller would want to.

He has an unlimited bankroll thanks to the cowards in Congress. And Sleepy Jeff.

Tony Podesta is shaking in his boots now, huh Tommy boy

What? Not guilty of Russian "collusion"! I thought the Manafort trial was for "collusion"!!! What's this old bank crap? Drumpf will just commute any sentence. The tears continue...even worse than before! Please help!!!

clarice feldman

NBC:Manafort was convicted on five counts of tax fraud, one count of failing to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts and two counts of bank fraud. A mistrial was declared in three counts of failing to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts, and seven counts of bank fraud and bank fraud conspiracy.

narciso

Back, mind you they immunized the embezzling partner, the banker the accountant and their little dog toto.

Sue

Oh wow! The suspect in the mollie Tibbets murder is an illegal immigrant.

Frau Wieselchen

Good to know that at least one D.C. juror did not buy Mueller's carp.

Now onto William 500 k Jefferson's lawyer, hello is this thing on?

Looks like you might be able to attribute another dead body to Fat Teddy's legacy.

DebinGA

That's sick stuff, CH. I hope the pathetic guy doesn't pose a danger to the group.

Sue

Michael Cohen just said in court that he he made the payments to the two women.... (Karen McDougal & Stormy Daniels) in coordination with and at the direction of candidate for federal office AKA Trump.

Someone’s Twitter.

Extraneus

What happens to Manafort if the Rodger Stone guy wins the appeal about Mueller not being legally appointed?

Not that I care about Manafort, btw.

henry

Sue, yet Cohen is "not cooperating." Something doesn't add up.

Eye Doctor

Tommy boy

Who outed Brewster Jennings & Associates and Valerie Plame?

Captain Hate

No danger, Deb; we pretty much ridicule him constantly. And by "we", I mean almost entirely "I".

clarice feldman

So what? Did Trump tell him to use his own money? As I recall, Trump told him to pay them with a checks , meaning it should be above board with a record of payment.

narciso

Was it Brian Ross, he's going to work for dan abrams.

Liberal Tears

Are either Karen McDougal & Stormy Daniels Russian? If not, I will be cranking my tears up to 11!

henry

Per our Chitown Lurker, Harwood (aka ValJar's stenographer) is pushing the "Cohen is cooperating" / "Cohen said Trump ordered the payments" crapola. I suppose we wait 24 hours and see if anyone will print news instead of spin.

Extraneus

Who doubted that it was at Trump's direction? Didn't Trump himself say that these hush money deals are common at his level?

Jim Eagle

Just read a long interview from 2002 of Paul Tibbets by Studs Terkel where Tibbets reveals there were strategic plans to use the A-Bomb also on Europe.

Anyone ever heard of that before?

Extraneus

I'm sure the lefties are humping their pillows but how would Cohen know who to pay off if Trump hadn't told him, and why would he have done it if Trump hadn't approved?

Marlene

A caller to Howie Carr's "chump line"..."if the ostrich coat doesn't fit,you must acquit!"
*snort*

Eye Doctor

When did paying hush money become illegal?

narciso

I think thats true, but by 45, it was impossible to find an untouched target, on the continent, like Hiroshima and nagasaki.

Captain Hate

No, Jack; maybe that was something they gamed out in case the Germans were getting close to developing one.

GUS

What does any of this MANAFORT stuff have to do with FBI CRIMINALITY and RUSSIAN COLLUSION with RODHAM??

narciso

Dresden waa perhaps the last target on the list,

henry

Ext, the bigger question is what any of that had to do with "campaign" funds rather than an extortion insurance fund of some sort.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I can think of a few Euro weeny cities that could use a good nuking right now.

Sue

I don’t know but why plead to violating campaign finance laws if it wasn’t illegal?

Eye Doctor

Tommy boy

What U.S Attorney was put in charge of record turnover in this circus?

narciso

The villains in fall out are a clique of these anarchists with state resource and funds.

Pee-resident DJT

Kev and jim nj usually like to weigh in on surveys and statistics:

https://www.libertarianism.org/media/free-thoughts/who-elected-donald-trump#transcript

henry

I got the impression from my grandfather they made a plan to use everything everywhere just in case. So the existence of a strategic plan to drop the bomb on Germany should not be a surprise. The bigger question is how close were they to needing it.

James D.

here were strategic plans to use the A-Bomb also on Europe.

They can drop one on Washington. DC right now. It’s the only way we will ever see one square inch of swamp get drained.

Back in May

Former FEC Chairman Bradley Smith on the Stormy Daniels payment: "I think that there's a very strong argument that this is not a campaign contribution, and not a campaign expenditure." @IngrahamAngle

Extraneus

Anyone here ever been to Dresden? I was there not long after the reunification and there were still giant bombed out ruins plain to see. Also barracks where the Stasi and Soviet overseers had been stationed.

I spoke with a young couple at dinner and they were happy about the transformation from communism, but they said that old people were screwed. That probably changed soon after then when welfare payments kicked in.

narciso

Yes the strategic bomb8ng survey indicated the campaign did not appreciably affect the enemy's will to fight, something McNamara should have figured out, he was part of it.

Pee-resident DJT

So Pee-resident DJT's campaign manager and personal lawyer are convicted/admitted criminals.

CH.

The 509th Bombardment Group was stood up in September 1944, well before the end of the war in Europe. The US might have had European targets for the A bomb but it wasn't tested until Jul 1945 over two months after VE Day.

Howie Carr@HowieCarrShow This is the illegal alien who murdered Mollie Tibbets. Don’t forget this when you vote in 2018.

That's where they sent Putin, not a sign of confidence in his abilities, otherwise he would have gone to Berlin or stuttgart.

So they lose weapons in boating accidents too?

Extraneus

I was at a crosswalk in Dresden one night with around 10 locals all waiting for the light to turn green. It was just a little one-lane road and not a car in sight, yet they all stood there and obediently waited for the signal. That moment was seared, I say seared, into my memory.

Again. Who exactly is Mueller's target?

Serious question: If Trump paid Perkins-Coie and
they paid Stormy, would this be a campaign 
finance violation?
Jim Eagle

Ex,

Been to Dresden a few times while living in SFO and London. Wonderful city. Ate once at the Opera House restaurant was pretty good. Stayed across the river at a really nice hotel. Took in the cathedral ruins, the Schwimmer, and Opera House.

Was another transit project we were looking at. Took the train from Chemnitz where Siemens has a large light rail transit plant. Very interesting city, as it was once called KarlMarxberg under the East Germans.

Extraneus

Stock market ETFs fall in after-hours trade as ex-Trump attorney implies he violated campaign law at behest of Trump

The ETF SPDR S&P 500 ETF SPY, -0.38% which tracks the S&P 500 index SPX, +0.21% and the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average, which tracks the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.25% were both down by at least 0.3% in after-hours trading

0.3%!

Davod

Narciso: The fact that the survey found that the area bombing did not have a major impact on moral is understandable. After all, who is going to say it did.

A different indicator of whether moral was affected could be in the number of weapons used to defend against area bombing.

The Germans diverted one million guns for Anti Aircraft use to defend the homeland. Just think of the damage those 88 mm guns could have caused on the East and Western fronts.

Eye Doctor

Yes, if Trump paid Perkins-Coie it would be the end of civilization as we know it.

Jim Eagle

Correction: KarlMarxstadt

I agree about Dresden. Very nice city. I was visiting Infineon, a Siemens spinoff, and stayed at the Kimpinski, which was pretty nice.

I say let’s investigate regardless of party all the lobbyists and other various and sundry individuals and groups who munch off us tax payers for tax and bank fraud, insider trading and anything else illegal that they do and that would land an ordinary citizen in jail. Hang em all.

Trump used his own money to make the whores go away, so who cares. It was only sex, after all.

Manafort had nothing to give Mueller on Trump or he would have caved long before now. So Mueller has struck out on getting anything from Cohen, Manafort and the 12 Russian “spies”. Who’s he going to after next? Barron for skipping school in kindergarten? He’s been hurting the Dems way more than he’s been helping for awhile now, because he’s coming across as a vindictive inquisitor and with every failure to try to get Trump it just makes Trump look even more innocent.

Davod

Henry and Pinpuller - The Russians advising that they are searching for a wayward missile is shorthand for they are also looking for the submarine the missile was stored in (Pun).

The FSB is also searching the US for a Scottish speaking seaman wearing a Russian Navy uniform.
