CH - Yes, it's me. (Auburn grad as are both of my children) Are you an LSU fan? If so - congratulations! It was a heartbreaker for us.

We still love Auburn, though!

To revisit my thoughts on the Iggy and The Stooge show, I envisioned Eyes Wide Shut masks on Skype talking religion between our hero and the mad copypasta adept. I soon realized that could grant too much exposure to The Darkness.

Why not look at The Bottle City of JOM as containing the contagion? We are all unsung heroes.

Captain Hate

No, Mom, I was just cheering for an exciting game. Sorry your War Eagles lost.

Extraneus

I haven't read the whole piece, but...

Did they say this because they believed it was true? Because they wanted to believe it was true? Because they had misplaced confidence in Christopher Steele, the former British spy who shared their anti-Trump contempt? Probably a bit of all those things.

Er, isn't there yet another possibility there, Andrew?

Pinandpuller

I dont know either Spyder Mungo or Alaska Thunderfuck. Just World Famous Wayne.

But the point is: You must always bear in mind that the incumbent leadership of the intelligence community had convinced itself that the Trump campaign was in cahoots with the Kremlin.

Er, no they didn't. They knew the dossier was bullshit.

This guy's such a tool.

Iggy,

I didn't say I was the first to post on Cohl Feury's theorys. You were, of course.

I am sort of surprised they put Bama against Auburn this early in the season. A lot of games like that, it seems. But I love to watch Alabama, not because I am a fan but because I love to watch disciplined football.

Yes, absolutely discipined. From the first tier player to the last tier player. You know your position, for every kind of play, you know your reaction. From the play book you know every play and every contingency when it goes bottoms up. It is drilled into you every day. But then when you were recruited you were in the top 100 if not 50 of the best high school players in America. Then you said to self and family, "why should I not play for Nick Saban." Really that simple.

As long as Nick is there, they will always be a highly ranked team. I used to put Frederick on my side and show him how Alabama works. Every coach should. They work plays differently because their kids are in shape, fast, and disciplined beyond their opponents.

When you break it all down. Nick gets the best kids then makes them better.

Er, isn't there yet another possibility there, Andrew?

I can't make it through the McCarthy piece. I'm sure there's some good info mixed in with the stupidity, but I'm not inclined to go prospecting for it at the moment. If anyone can quote some of the good stuff, it would be much appreciated.

Captain Hate

That was LSU, Jack, not Bama; I think they're playing Ol' Miss.

daddy

Wait a minute...now I may have no idea what an octonian actually is but I do know what first is. Who posted a story about Feury and octonians first around these parts?

It's all relative Iggy, and certainly it depends upon what dimension you posted it in.

From "Elegant Universe", (Published 1999) here's my quick cutting and pasting and hopefully short explanation of why these eggheads came up with String Theory in the first place and why they remain so attached to it:

Pg 182) String Theory is the only way we know of to merge general relativity and quantum mechanics.

pg 13) We could go on but the idea is clear: the universe is the way it is because the matter and force particles have the properties they do. But is there a scientific explanation for why they have these properties?

String Theory offers a powerful conceptual paradigm in which, for the first time, a framework for answering these questions has emerged.

The particles in Figure 1 (atoms, electrons, protons, neutrons, quarks) are the "letters" of all matter. Just like their linguistic counterparts they appear to have no further internal substructure. String Theory proclaims otherwise...if we could examine these particles with even greater precision---many orders of precision beyond our current technology---we would find that each is not pointlike, but instead consists of a tiny one-dimensional loop. Like an infinitely thin rubber band...a vibrating, oscillating, dancing filament...

Pg 130) The size of these strings---The Planck Length? ...a millionith of a billionith of a billionith of a billionth of a centimeter(10-33) if we were to magnify an atom to the size of the known universe, the Planck Length would barely expand to the height of an average tree.

So why the need to postulate super-microscopic dancing strings?

Pages 140-144 (My babbling)---if you apply variations of Euler's 200 year old equation having to do with explaining the vibrations of a violin string, you come up with vibrations that have the properties of a quark, and then octave's up have the properties of electron's, and then octave's up emerge as the properties of a proton, and gravity and etc, ---beguilingly seductive stuff.

I think it is the passion and potential understanding aroused within that seductively interesting idea that keeps these guys so enthralled, but the flip side, IIRC like I believe Feynmann immediately recognized when he begged of String Theory, is what Dumbledore warns Harry Potter about after his afternoon of staring at The Mirror of Erised:



“Can you think what the Mirror of Erised shows us all?" Harry shook his head.

"Let me explain. The happiest man on earth would be able to use the Mirror of Erised like a normal mirror, that is, he would look into it and see himself exactly as he is. Does that help."

Harry thought. Then he said slowly, "It shows us what we want... whatever we want..."

"Yes and no," said Dumbledore quietly.
"It shows us nothing more or less than the deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts. You, who have never known your family, see them standing around you. Ronald Weasley, who has always been overshadowed by his brothers, sees himself standing alone, the best of all of them. However, this mirror will give us neither knowledge or truth. Men have wasted away before it, entranced by what they have seen, or been driven mad, not knowing if what it shows is real or even possible.

And that's all I have to say about that.

"I hope the president follows through, at least to the extent he can do so without putting intelligence methods and sources at risk. Accountability is essential here."

Made up b.s. bought and paid for by one of the most corrupt individuals in American history and circulated by some of the most perverted individuals in American history, and protected by one of the slimiest pricks in American history--- those sources and methods?

WEll said, Boris. My bad.

Captain Hate

4d or not, according to what JackStraw has been posting, what they're uncovering is huge and the corruption goes back at least to the GWB administration and maybe earlier than that. Forget small trash jokes like Watergate, this blows all the collected scandals since the start of the country out of the water. This could permanently impact how people think about the federal government. The only thing I can compare it to is how my parents generation thought about the Depression.

I don't think McCarthy's brain can process the magnitude of it.

Clarice Feldman

Plus feynman was very cute and very funny.

Andy McCarthy said: "We’ve had a lot to say about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s failure to comply with federal regulations that require showing a factual basis for a criminal investigation — i.e., reason to believe that a crime was committed — before appointing a special counsel, Robert Mueller. But Rosenstein was just riding the tide. The FISA warrants show that this practice of launching a criminal investigation in the absence of a crime long predated Rosenstein and Mueller. "

So.F*cking. What?

I posted the article on Octonians just before bringing the hot-spot back to the library. Interesting that it is still being discussed. I'd like to say I understood it all, but, alas no. The big thing that hit me that it seemed to be Math based on the eight primary particles.

narciso79

Well its travesty of justice, almost an exact inversion of the Minneapolis case.

Captain Hate

I don't know, Jack; he's our only chance to reveal it.

Miss Marple (the real one)

Captain Hate,

I saw a post today by Imperator Rex which discussed this very thing.

His opinion was that with the corruption and bad actions being so wide-spread and for so long, Trump was moving very deliberately and slow. Removing everyone in Justice, FBI, and other agencies would effectively decapitate the government and cause wide-spread panic.

In my opinion, Trump is moving methodically.

1. Remove Deep State funding. This would include stopping foreign money, stopping crime syndicates which pay off people in agencies and Congress, going over budgets and asking about slush funds and mysterious projects, etc.

2. Remove influence of the media and press. This has been well underway and continues. This also includes Hollywood, who are losing influence by the day.

3. Get Americans up to speed on what has been going on, although gradually so that people don't panic.

4. When all of these are far enough along, drop the hammer.

This is why those of us who are already well aware of what's been going on get impatient. It's a plan which makes sense to me if it is what is really going on. Of course, it's only my theory.

Extraneus

Btw, there's no "intelligence community." There are intelligence "services." And who or what are they supposed to be servicing?

Not communities.

MF'ers need to be totally exposed, including "sources and methods."

Jim Eagle

jim nj,

It is for me, an engineer in higher math (Ops research), a very interesting concept, and thanks for bringing Dr. Feury to our attention. She is on a lonely track and I wish her well. These are the complications of computations that keep you awake at night. Thank God, I decided to forfeit doctoral for working in the real life. I would still be baffled by what I can't believe. She is going through the same process.

daddy

I see that Dershowitz has raised fears about the Manafort Plea Deal, whereas Andy McCarthy 2 columns back has said there's nothing there so don't worry a bit.

Without any inside knowledge I gravitate to Dersh's worries because Dershowitz, being a lawyer who sued the Boston Garden because he slipped on the wet floor of the toilet at some Celtic's Game, Dershowitz knows full well how unethical Lawyers can be, whereas how many times have we seen Andy M show up on FOX and Friends explaining how he never dreamed his former colleagues in the DOJ would do whatever their latest egregiously unethical and illegal act was. My general recommendation to Andy M is that he has somebody tattoo the name Ted Stevens backward on his forehead so that every time he looks in a mirror he reads the Ted Stevens, and his memory is triggered about how the FBI/DOJ intentionally coached their "Star Witness" to lie under Oath, thereby handing the Senate Seat to Mark Begich and giving Obama his 60th Vote for ObamaCare.

Miss Marple (the real one)

Captain Hate,

I have thought about this a lot, because of the make-up of my family. My dem sister will be in shell shock when this is revealed, as will my daughter. Neither one likes Trump at all and think Obama did a good job. My old classmate from high school will be the same way.

These are people who will have to have definitive evidence and proof, or they won't believe it at all. Now multiply that by millions.

That is why I don't get upset that thinks aren't moving at rapid speed. If Trump had rounded them all up right after the Inauguration (as they richly deserved) there would have been blood in the streets.

Jim Eagle

CH,

Either of them don't have the defense to take on Bama. Ole Miss is a SE conference team. They may get the 2nd and 3rd applicants but they get more than USC and Texas. No contest against Bama.

I am a Gator, and Bearcat fan, so I have no reason to pump anyone up or lower anyone down, but Bama is a complete team. Its what Sabin and his crew does every year.

Ignatz,

I have discovered that what I need to do is keep my brain from overtime thinking. If I am lying in the quiet and dark, my brain starts running on finances, family problems, plans for yardwork, etc.

What I try to do is listen to something on live feed which distracts me and keeps my brain enough occupied that I am not overcome with worry. Last night I listened to the hurricane coverage, which put me to sleep fairly quickly. Some nights I listen to videos playing one after another from the White House YouTube site. In addition, some nights I also play a game on my iPad which is geometric and has no characters or plot.

The WORST thing for me is staring off into the dark and quiet.

boatbuilder

Re: Paul Ryan. Is he really so dense that he doesn't know this isn't about statistics?

He's supposed to be a politician. Isn't the proper and competent politician's response to say "I don't think this is really about how post-hurricane deaths are measured, which is a relatively new and uncharted discipline. This is about a biased media's attempt to manipulate and abuse a tragic natural disaster in the service of their favored political agenda."

Is that so hard?

--Screw National Review & Andrew McCarthy. --

Scott Johnson demurs.

The invaluable Andrew McCarthy has now cracked open the window a little wider in two columns with one theme: FISA Docs Show: Long Before Mueller, Trump-Russia Was an Investigation Without a Crime. The first column (posted yesterday afternoon) is “Reading the FISA redactions.” The second is “In the Russia Probe, It’s ‘Qui S’excuse S’accuse’” (posted this morning — the French expression is to the effect that “he who excuses himself accuses himself”).

These are long, detailed, illuminating and educational columns that draw on McCarthy’s professional expertise. Stick with them — both of them. Do not miss either one.

I've been reading some of the "look-back" articles on the 2008 financial panic. Most of them are clueless after 10 years of possible reflection and studies that ensued from the event.

They point with childish simplicity at this or that, completely missing the point. 2008 was the worst financial panic that the US had ever seen. It was a near-total collapse of all the markets at once. Pointing at this or that aspect just doesn't cut it. It might suit your worldview or your politics to decry some aspect or other.

None of them look at Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac as the ones who set up the panic in the first place by adopting Michael Milkins' junk bond concepts and applying them to the home mortgage market.

But if any of them did that, you would realize that only happened because Congress allowed it to happen. They exhibited no oversight of those agencies and their increasing stupid schemes that brought in low-quality borrowers. In fact they encouraged it by forcing banks to make riskier loans due to the "Community Banking Act" of 1977. "Activists" complained every time a banking license was up for renewal that whatever the bank's name was they weren't doing enough business in inner cities.

This is akin to how I would go to choir practice back inthe 80's and be all exhausted, and then when we were done, I would be all energized. I think it was because when you are doing choral singing, you have a host of things to concentrate on: notes, breathing, pronunciation, timing, volume, etc.

By the time I left rehearsal, I would feel all energetic. I assume it was because my brain was distracted from everyday worries.

I think my insomnia problem is related, which is why I choose things which occupy my mind passively (listening) without making me do heavy duty thinking.
It's enough that I follow along with the talking and pretty soon, I am getting drowsy.

Iggy,

It was so bad the FED had to deploy tools it had never used before, didn't know they were allowed to use, probably broke several laws in the process or had some extremely clever lawyers pointing out that it may not be allowed but it isn't explicitly barred.

Actually, I'd be fine with a hands-off, to the victor go the spoils approach, if it had only been the institutions involved.

And I think the FED was trying to that. They were going to let Lehman Brothers fail. They were in talks about how to save Lehman Brothers by some other financial entity, but when private talks broke down, they didn't try to impose a settlement.

There was an earlier investment firm that the FED helped (the name eludes me) and I think them got to thinking that that wasn't a good precedent. Something they should be doing on a day to day basis.

Let me know if you can remember the one before Lehman.

One thing I do remember about Lehman was that their leverage ration 25-30:1. That's not an investment bank. That's a hedge fund or a badly run casino.
