The U.S. government revealed in court filings Friday that the FBI used multiple confidential informants, including some who were paid for their information, as part of its investigation into former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“The FBI has protected information that would identify the identities of other confidential sources who provided information or intelligence to the FBI” as well as “information provided by those sources,” wrote David M. Hardy, the head of the FBI’s Record/Information Dissemination Section (RIDS), in court papers submitted Friday.

Hardy and Department of Justice (DOJ) attorneys submitted the filings in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for the FBI’s four applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Page. The DOJ released heavily redacted copies of the four FISA warrant applications on June 20, but USA Today reporter Brad Heath has sued for full copies of the documents.

Hardy’s declaration acknowledged that the confidential sources used by the FBI were in addition to Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the infamous anti-Trump dossier.

“This includes nonpublic information about and provided by Christopher Steele, as well as information about and provided by other confidential sources, all of whom were provided express assurances of confidentiality,” Hardy wrote, referring to information disclosed in the four FISA applications.

My goodness, even the Dems are officially embracing a whole new level of sock puppetry: GOP Women’s Group Attacking Trump Funded Solely by Male Democratic Donor.

In case you were wondering, "The co-founders of Republican Women for Progress previously led Republican Women for Hillary during the 2016 elections." which pretty much tells you all you need to know about these media darlings. Is there a term for women socking themselves?

With the MSM all agog over the last minute gazillions flowing into Democrat coffers, it seems like 2016 dead-enders everywhere are looking to "relitigate" the theory that all you have to do to win elections is to pour money into them. Good luck with that!


At least they aren’t using tax dollars this time. (Or at least less of it comes from tax dollars or “settlements” with CFPB and EPA).

And since this is a sports related thread, I just wanted to wish Brewski and LaLa fans a thrilling Game 7 tonight. How about a 40 inning game to keep up the excitement until well into tomorrow? Of course, my wishes have nothing to do with any desire for the NLCS winner to arrive in Boston on Tuesday with the necessity of having a bullpen game with position players! :-)

I felt like I didn't even need to read this column: What Is The Point of The Washington Post Opinion Section?

It ends by listing the titles (with links) of some 60+ opinion columns:

Below is a sample of the Post‘s opinion output since July 2018. This isn't to suggest the paper never publishes anything worthwhile. (See here.) But it will make you wonder why Jeff Bezos doesn't just print "Trump is bad" at the top of every page. Think of all the money and column space it would save.

Why don't they just call it a tie and start with the 10th inning? Then folks could take all the time they want for post-game carousing.

boston sports fans are tired of winning.


-rse, thanks for asking. I'd say it's been an interesting mixed bag for my son's assimilation into college. He's doing well academically; he loves his economics prof. He's gotten out of his comfort zone and has joined some clubs; but he still hasn't "found his people," to use a cliche popular with helicopter parents. He is certainly doing better than my wife's worst fears. We are going to Charlottesville next weekend for family weekend.

Since this is a sort-of sports thread, “Rachel” Mackinnon, a “trans woman” won the UCI (cycling) women’s world championship.

Thus heralding the end of women’s sports as we know it.

It’s twitter feed is awash with the worst collection of self-serving SJW “l’m a victim” crap I’ve ever read.


Tom Collins, the Red Sox don't need any additional help; I'd say they are the overwhelming favorite against either NL team. They would have to really work hard to blow it; hell even Price had a good start.

Been warning bleeding hearts about this for at least two decades:

Typhus, Hepatitis, Cholera Anyone?


peter-The diva realized she could not find time to fly home this fall so she asked her dad to come visit for the weekend. He hates to tell the kids no, a problem I do not have, so off he went.

If anyone wants to give me advice on NZ she decided london wasn't going anywhere, but going to the southern hemisphere would be more fun. I guess it is certainly a more fun way to master a british accent.

Hope she likes wind. Lots of if. Outdoor paradise if hiking, mountaineering, kayaking, sailing, skiiing are your thing. That and Rugby. Oh, yeah, the Rugby which means the All-Blacks, the Haka, and winning. [They are to Rugby Union rules, what The Patriots are to the NFL, and Bama to College ball]. I envy her.

Warn her that if is Southern Hem summer, the squitos there are out of this world.


A good front just blew through here. Supposed to drop from high 40s this morning to mid 20s by this afternoon. Hope it teaches Boston in time for the series. Northwest 45 mph gusts. Nice firewood resupply dropping on my driveway. ;)

re Typhus, Hepatitis, Cholera link:

two nights ago returning home from SFO, driving through west Berkeley, we passed a homeless "encampment". Mrs Kid laments. i grumble:"they should remove them and burn it down."

"that's just terrible!" she groaned.

Terrible? Here's what's terrible: local and state government bureaucracies with loaded salaries, benefit plans, and pensions are growing right along with the numbers of people who come here to BE HOMELESS.

there is a growing trend here for people to live on the street so they don't pay rent, but actually work.

the number of RVs on Berkeley back streets covered with blue tarps to keep out non-existent rain is a dead giveaway. some of those streets are so choked with RVs that they are effectively 1 lane roads now.

what's terrible? DISEASES that were 3rd world fare are growing in scale and size. Meanwhile the CDC is all about fighting the AIDS crisis for the last 30 years. "Scarce resources" is what we hear about. Bull shitake.

What's terrible? traveling into San Francisco proper is a health risk. the Mayor of SFO is a moron. and the Left is creating more jobs for lefties and their enclaves by AVOIDING the problem.

Mrs Kid apologized. "I'm sorry. I really had no idea all of that was going on."

NPR. NPR. NPR. "The City's Homeless" is the euphemism for SQUALOR and a complete lack of political will.

yeah, yeah, yeah, mental health and hard times etc etc etc---- but the creators of this problem and the benefactors are not going to solve it.

Biology will.

Easily worth $25k/yr now, plus beneficial effects on future earnings if they select the right major and take the education seriously.


I love Deplorable Don's writing. Short snappy and frequent amusing phrases. Good news, too, much of the time.

"Democrats had the Senate tied on September 25, according to Real Clear Politics.
The site said Democrats were poised to pick up Arizona, Nevada, and Tennessee, while losing Missouri and North Dakota, for a net gain of one seat.
On October 3, Tennessee flipped back to Republicans.
On October 11, Nevada flipped back to Republicans.
On October 13, Arizona flipped back to Republicans.
On Thursday, the site said Republicans would gain a third state, Florida."

Ever since the final Nixon 5 o'clock shadow turned the election for Kennedy (HA!) political marketers have stumbled all over themselves to insinuate their high fees into campaign spends based on nuttin at all.

the MsB affair is being milked for all it's worth.

i think this kind of shite has been factored in to voters' lack of thinking re their votes.

NY Dem Candidate Objectified Korean Women in Blog, Said ‘Effeminate’ Male K-Pop Stars ‘Awkward to Look At’.

Obvious click bait, chez moi. From my admittedly second-hand observation, most of what candidate McMurray said about Korean culture was on the mark, or very close to it. I obviously disagree about the appeal of K-Pop and its stars (eye-candy notwithstanding), but even his putatively "offensive" joke is one that I can easily imagine making the rounds in Seoul, where the desirability of white, western facial features is no secret. Parents give their daughters plastic surgery for their birthdays, and the most popular option for both men and women eliminates the extra Asian eyelid fold.

When I couldn't find any particularly compromising mountain in this molehill, I wondered about the author's age. Sure enough "media analyst" Cameron Cawthorne graduated from UVa in 2013. I'm afraid straight-laced PC culture may be endemic in the callow young professional crowd, and I hope this narrow view of what is acceptable will not ultimately prevail. If I want to take imaginary offense, I can do it myself; I don't need some over-sensitive young reporter exploiting the PC canon on my behalf.

the Dems motto: vote early. vote often.


Colleges, imho, should go back to AMATEUR sports, not be farm teams for the NFL and NBA. Let true amateurs among legitimately admitted students play. For the fun of it.
Focus on academics not fluff, not sports, not Olympic-grade facilities, not layers upon layers of administrators. Not social justice.

I acknowledge there are other opinions about, at least, the sports side of things on this blog.


JimNorCal, sports may be the last place in academia where excellence is allowed.


" ... let’s ruin the reputation of the guy who was dismembered – while he was still alive. "

What is it with Muslims and cutting off people's heads while they are still alive?

Glad to see our troll lurch into the truth that this should be deplored. Still waiting for it to be deplored in ALL cases, not just occasionally in support of random Dem talking points.


kk: I used to head up to Berkeley 4 or 5 times a year to browse bookstores, attend speaker events, and see music or film performances that were not mainstream. I cant recall the last time I went. Maybe to get together with DrJ and assorted JOMsters, LOL? A long time ago!

I still head up to SF from time to time, usually to accompany visiting friends.

I guess it's just a Free Beacon morning here. US Pledges $300 Million in Aid to Iraqi Christians

Programs to rebuild Iraqi Christian communities destroyed by Islamic State are being implemented with the support of $300 million from the United States. Approximately 40,000 Christians have returned home after escaping persecution at the hands of Islamic State.

I'm glad to know that someone is finally paying attention. Alas, this is not the only place where Christians are and have been under crushing attack. In stories that barely break the surface in the MSM, what's happening in many parts of the world should really be called religious genocide.


Posted by: JimNorCal | October 20, 2018 at 01:51 PM

that ain't happening anytime soon.

so what did the coup plotters need to cover up by saturating the airwaves with the k-hog story?


Excellent point, henry!

JM Hanes


I'm not sure I can tell the coup plotters from the coup platters, at this point, but what I do know is that saturating the airwaves with Khashoggi is very convenient for Dems with no platform to talk about-- or more accurately, with a platform they don't want to talk about. Impeaching the President, blowing up the economy and raising taxes is not a good look.

Back from all the errands. Got what we needed at Lowe's and then decided to go to a different Kroger since It was close to Lowe's. It was one of their Marketplace stores, with TWO FRONT DOORS.

When we walked in, I told my daughter I wouldn't be shopping there regularly. Walking in the door labeled "pharmacy" and seeing a huge fashion and clothing display with several aisles of garments for men, women and children is NOT what I want out of a grocery. I also noted how they directed your path to encourage more spending.

Now I am sitting with my feet up since 2 hours walking around on concrete floors does a number on my joints.

Also, we saw 2 car wrecks in the space of 3 blocks, and got caught in the traffic jam between 2 sets of emergency vehicles. Had to take a long detour to get home. Fortunately, Henry's cold front has't hit here so it's a sunny but coolish day, so no wind or rain.

had a 6 pack of SN Oktoberfest last night.


Kevlar Kid


the only occasion for me to viz SFO is when friends land there from out of town. other than that, nuthin' there to rave about anymore.

used to spend our anniversaries at the top suite in the Mandarin Oriental. to our chagrin it was bought out by a major chain and subsequently had its soul removed and its prices doubled.

Berkeley's city library doubles as a homeless community center. abandoned using it in 97. the Cal libraries remain world class and a very inexpensive resource for doing deep dives when required.

the natural beauty of the surrounding area is divine and uncrowded September through Memorial Day. i leave it to the Chinese Communist touristas in the summer.

of course, the politicos who run the city and its numerous regulatory boards and commissions have padded their pensions, benefit plans and salaries to the point of collapse-- all the while creeping along by creating 1/2 time positions for cronies and miscreant clingers on to the Great Transformation Project put onto steroids by The Bath House Rat.

saw a gum for sale at a Walgreens the other day "I Just Kissed a Republican" Chewing Gum.

a political button: "Let's Party Like Obama Was Still President."

that's all going on at sea level. if we din't live 300 feet above sea level then we'd scram.

maybe the tide will wash it all out to sea with the rest of the smelt and human waste flowing into the bay.

Safeway in Berkeley bought out 5 "Andronico" boutique/Trader Joe Wannabe stores, rebranded as "Safeway Community Market".

higher end snooty shee-shee product lines with some continuity with regular Safeway inventory--- just 15 to 30% more added to the grocery bill for shopping there.

it's for the arched-eyebrows crowd and their reuseable/contaminated shopping bags. our Safeway is using plastic bags again.

one hears the grumbling about the lack of affordable this and that--- yet people are spending $1000 a month feeding two.

Ever since the eleventh, through which the temperatures were much higher than average (in one case the low temperature was higher than the average high), temps have steadily been lower than average, on two days the high temp was equal to the average low.

White House leans on Mexico to shut down migrant caravan.

Trust the Daily Mail to provide a multiplicity of photos for any single event. You can imagine which ones a sympathetic press would pick out, but what I've noticed looks like a certain shortage of infants and children. The further down I scrolled, the more I understood just how brilliantly Trump outfoxed the Dems, when he demanded that the caravan be halted at Mexico's border with Guatemala.

The Dems can try to make something of Trump's "These aren't little angels" remark, but that's nothing compared to the October surprise they had in mind. Just look at a couple of Daily Mail videos and then realize what the Dems had planned for us on our own southern border. It's truly appalling.

Let's just hope that Mexico will not give way, and that Honduras and El Salvador can be persuaded that it's in their best interests step up to bat. Even if Mexico abandoned the effort now, the caravaners are still more than a thousand miles away from the nearest U.S. entry point. Unless they've got a whole lot more vehicles than it appears, this seething mass of humanity looks to miss the election window. It will be interesting to see if they turn around at that point or not.

So, having denied the Dems their main event, I suspect it will be Khashoggi & MBS with a side of Jared 24/7, till Nov. 6th, at which point Election 2020 will take off with a vengeance.

How is Chuckie v2.0 working out?

Thanks for the additional information.

She can hold her own with the Euros, which is a plus as well.

I know my fashion comment sounds superficial, but for God's sake, if I, as a Midwestern grandma, knew that round necklines on a busty woman make her look frumpy, why didn't Laura Bush? I have her figure type, and I NEVER wear anything but V necklines! Why were her designers allowed to sabotage her look?

I won't even discuss Michelle Obama's fashion disasters.

Personal appearance in a First Lady is very important since we entered the television age. It's not like the era of Bess Truman or Mamie Eisenhower, where an occasional newspaper photo is all that the public saw.

Chuckie 2.0 is probably working out better than Davis 2.0.

At least Year 1 under a new regime is expectedly horsesh*t. They are about to trade away Amari Cooper. Derek Carr is wound so tight he can't sh*t straight. The defense is pointless despite the big gun from Cincy (allegedly) DCoordinator.

Fans are in full-scale mutiny mode over the Mack trade. That's on the GM messing up the money. We're back in cap hell.

And there is Cash Flow Hell:

We're still paying Jack Del Rio 7million a year for the foreseeable future according to his Paw who is a crony of mine.

Nice gig if you can swing it.

Rebuilding in perpetuity until Davis can unload the team in Vegas, filling his piggy bank, which was the goal all along.

Better days will be ahead once Bowl Cut Davis is out of the business.

Chuckie looks in nearly every photo as if he'd landed in hell.

I don't think he survives Vegas as he is Mr. Control Freak when it comes to player conduct. "How ya gonna keep em down on the farm..."

Glad to hear you got colors! Minneapolis/St Paul area had colors going on that were better than the 9 years of much-vaunted color seasons in VermInt. Always an excuse as to why they sucked, were muted, or short-lived. M/SP were exploding!

One more suggestion. They have to spot all opposition 21 points to begin each game.

Think it will make any difference?


Once Trump threatened to deploy the military to the border, the Dems were toast. Can you imagine the pride and cheering of normal people if that were to actually happen? The military is the most respected institution in this country, and almost no one truly wants open borders - not even Dems or Hispanics.

This caravan is a total desperation move. I hope they make it here in time for the election.

There are a lot of people askeered to display their support for republicans and Trump and it is damn past time to show the nation our strength.

Numbers and a show of support can make a difference if more folks decide to vote due to that.
