Bubarooni

Yer out!

JimNorCal

Whew!

Threadkiller

Let the reasonable discourse continue.

Bubarooni

"I am a certified iFixit pro."

JiB is definitely gonna move in this weeks JOM Power Rankings.

I hate replacing screens on anything. Apple or not.

henry

Baseball does not have a designated hitter.

henry

Removes bow tie.

danoso

Finally figured out what’s been bugging me about the ‘one beer’ thing. That’s the sort of thing someone over the limit would tell the cop when they get pulled over. They can’t say none since the reek of alcohol, but don’t want to say ‘a few’ since that implies too many.

She says she was at a party, so of course she drank something. But she sticks with one to make it sound like she was under control.

Idk - comes across as a tell to me.

Captain Hate

George Will must be so sad today.

danoso

Oh, and boo Yankees

henry

Danoso, might be true. As the song goes, "one scotch, one bourbon, and one beer."

Frau  Lehrerin a.D.

Yuuuge thanks to TM even though I had no trouble going past page 20. Did we make a new JOM record? Am a survivor?

Extraneus

Let the reasonable discourse continue.

In that case, please confine yourself to the previous thread.

lyle

Yes, you’re a survivor, Frau. Everyone is! Yay!

Jack is Back!

Who is the top HR hitter in baseball? Is he a Yankee?

Be careful TM, this is not a foregone conclusion.

But who can think baseball, when we are getting ready for hockey. Fittingly, the Bruins, my first team to root for when a kid in Newfoundland, play the Caps. Go get'em guys.

Bunky is now Savotage!!!

Thank God!!

narciso

You saw her authorized yearbook picture, still. Found in scribn o think, it was probably just on keg (maybe a good name for a blog) for her.

Jack is Back!

Caps score already in less than a minute, at the 24 second mark. LOL

Bunky is now Savotage!!!

So accuser has bona fide deep state connection. Funny that

Dorothy Jane

Yay! And I want to say how much I am missing Miss Marple links - I hope your connection gets better soon!

Bunky is now Savotage!!!

End of Cop Land is so epic

Jack is Back!

And another one at 18:13! JamesD is in euphoria at the game. The way to start a defense of your trophy.

Extraneus

Finally figured out what’s been bugging me about the ‘one beer’ thing.

Flake and Collins whined, but Trump was on that last night.

"Oh, she only had one beer? That's the only thing she remembers." (Something like that.)

He's kicking their asses with his endurance and work ethic.

Remember that 1990 interview when he lamented about his friend's need to get 8 hours of sleep a night, and how said it was that his other friend would be worried about a home mortgage while Trump was in the process of setting up an air shuttle between NY and DC, buying some sort or sports team (or league), and one other fairly major thing, yet sleeping like a baby for 4 hours per night?

narciso

Which one, swetnick had clearances for state justice and homeland, doesn't that make you feel all warm and fuzzy.

Miss Marple

ATTENTION:

Please go to my post at the very end of the last thread.

I am currently unable to copy links or tweets from Twitter. I am locked out.

I will be calling my GOP senator in the morning.

Bunky is now Savotage!!!

Advising agent on poly (?)

daddy on iPad

She remembers drinking only 1 beer as firmly and precisely as Corey Booker remembers groping that gals breast in 1984 with "Highway To The Danger Zone" ringing in his head.

Jack is Back!

Okay. at 18:13 it means they scored again at 1.87 minutes. They clock down in hockey, not up.

James D.

It is pretty crazy here at the Capital One Arena (ugh, I hate that name).

Can’t ask for a better start to the title defense.

Extraneus

Thought I was serious?

Miss Marple

Jack,

On my last post at the end of the last thread, I thanked you for your kind offer and will take you up on it if my son's friend cannot help.

Pergram

Fox has learned that Jackson Cosko arrested in connection with doxing senators was an unpaid intern with Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX).
Fox is told that Cosko has only been with Jackson Lee’s office a couple of months but has now been terminated.

=====
Lee it is.

Bunky is now Savotage!!!

Wasn’t Lee at some of the Kavanaugh hearing on last day?

maryrose

Narciso:
Swetnick that whack job with a security clearance scares the heck out of me.
I want James D to be happy at the game. However down the line I want the Cleveland Indians to win it all this year.
It is our turn after so many years in the wilderness and coming so close to winning it all.

narciso

Yes she was handling envelopes to various members

Jack is Back!

The Hill is filled with Cosko kids. The Reps and Senators do nothing to control them. Its been going on for years, and years. They get the "power" bit and think they are invulnerable. About time capital police stomp on them.

When I was there, they would brag about how distracted their senator or rep was and how they could just say or do anything. Not anymore.

Threadkiller

In that case, please confine yourself to the previous thread.

Catsmeat

Harry Crews is, I agree, a great writer--just brutal but funny on his dirt-poor Georgia childhood.

I too am a survivor! Gosh, that thread did take the cake. MM, come back to us!

Yowza -- Senate Dems say in new letter that there is information in Kavanaugh's past FBI background checks that involve either inappropriate sexual behavior or alcohol abuse (aides won't elaborate which)

DOJ National Security Division has a press conference scheduled for 9:30 tomorrow morning.

Yes, it does. So does the "I remember the laughing, it was indelibly seared into my memory". Let me explain.

The survivor of the Last Thread and many a blackout, too many to remember, the last thing to go was always the hearing. Of those times I do remember, the only thing I can remember in detail was the sounds, usually of people laughing at me and maybe some hazy, distorted images. I think the laughter seared into the memory part means she drank too much and passed/blacked out.

That is if she didn't dream the whole thing up and lied through her teeth.

lurkersusie

There is this

Sohrab Ahmar
@SohrabAhmari
Sen Judiciary staffer writes me on background:

"This is a desperate effort to bluff the press into thinking there is something sensational behind the curtain. There's no there there, but they know that confidentiality rules prevent us from dispelling the notion fully."

Clarice Feldman

Thank you, TM!!!!

PD

Can’t ask for a better start to the title defense.

Enjoy! Drink in the moment.

Was that a poetic phrase or a command, one cannot be sure.

Porchlight

The "pinballing" down the stairs also strikes me as a tell. That's something you see, not something that you can distinguish from sounds you hear while you're hiding in the bathroom with the door locked.

But whatever, it's all lies.

DebinGA

Anything info sent by Durbin is suspect.

BREAKING: Former top FBI lawyer James Baker gave "explosive" closed-door testimony on Wednesday detailing for congressional investigators how the Russia probe was handled in an "abnormal fashion" reflecting "political bias"

PD

The FBI confidential Kavanaugh report: Who's allowed to read it and where

The information in the background investigation file is not marked top secret or classified, but it is not to be leaked to even characterized. Senators are "not allowed to share any details whatsoever," a committee aide said.

That rule will likely be tested.

You mean the (D)'s are not above leaking information? Who knew!?!

henry

Reading the linked Baker story, it appears an unknown source for FISA was revealed. An "explosive" source per Rep Jordan. Rosenstein gets questioned next week.

narciso

Yankees are up 2-0

Simon schuster is the latest to be handed the fusion file.

James D.

Anything sent by Durbin is a lie. By definition.

daddy on iPad

Fox is told that Cosko has only been with Jackson Lee’s office a couple of months but has now been terminated.

I remember when Chuck Schumers aides illegally accessed RNC Charman Michael Steele's SSN number and were caught using it to snoop for dirt or him, and Schumer explained it was just some overzealous Junior folks being kids and no harm, no foul, and blah, blah, blah. Odd how these junior aides keep doing this stuff all on their own, under the very noses of their Congressional employers who naturally know nothing about it at all.

And Craig Livingstone and FBI file-gate...
And Awan...
And Sandy Burgler...

Miss Marple

You guys should go to Imperator Rex's time line. Look for the thread which starts "OK buckle up."

Big stuff including a DOJ press conference.

Miss Marple

Thanks, Henry!!!

Dorothy Jane

Such interesting times we live in!

Yankees are up 2-0.

Carp, in the taxi across the damaged bridge to the Osaka airport this instant. cant find the game on Radio. and won't know what happened until we arrive in hong Kong in about 5 hours. Bummer:(

Beasts of England

Thanks, henry!!

I think Page flipped. I think Ohr accidentally testified truthfully. It's been a while, but wasn't the consensus that Baker was an honest broker?

Frau  Lehrerin a.D.

Why is Durbin still in DC or even alive? Who is responsible for his continued existence? He called US military in Iraq "Nazis."

To quote my West TX mother, Durbin is not worth the powder and lead it would take to blow him to Kingdom Come.

JimNorCal

"The Hill is filled with Cosko kids"

Yet, I've read multiple times that Repubs routinely hire staffers that are Dems and have worked for Dem Congress people ("experience" getting more value than "trustworthy").

henry

Beasts, I have no way to evaluate any of them. Not sure I label any of those three "honest." In a multi-player prisoners' dilemma, I evaluate those three as most likely to fault (break the thieves code of silence). As a contrast to Strzok or McCabe (or in my book Rosenstein or Sessions).

narciso

Well he went to work for goldsmith lawfare, and was a,mutineers back in March 04, but maybe he saw the light.

maryrose

Frau:
I ask myself that question everyday.
Durbin was also behind some of the targeting of conservative Tea Party groups by the IRS with Obama’s approval.

Dorothy Jane

Was Page attached to Baker? I agree - I think she told them the truth. I hope what is about to be announced isn't along the lines of the "Hillary was guilty but didn't mean it" version Comey provided.

henry

Also note, Sessions was subpoenaed by the House today. (Explosive source? Real reason to recuse? We really don't know diddly here)

maryrose

Dorothy Jane:
I have no idea what will be announced but hope fervently that at last the corruption is going to be revealed.

DebinGA

"6 officers injured, 1 killed by shooter in Florence, SC; suspect in custody" - Deputies were serving warrant to elderly man. Serving warrants seems to be very risky.

Jack is Back!

Now 4-0.

JamesD is getting his money's worth tonight.

narciso

This was before we knew he was the contact man to the courier who led to ubl.

Clarice Feldman

Henry--it was a subpoena to produce the relevant FISA materials the FBI has refused to release.

Jack is Back!

5-0.

How can this be? I really feel sorry for the Bruins goalie. Not his fault. He needs some support on the check line.

Miss Marple

Dave (in MA),

Haha! That is a great graphic!!

Dave (in MA)

Ugh

maryrose

Henry:
I am cautiously optimistic but dont want to get my hopes up.

James D.

Now the Caps need to slow it down and save something for tomorrow night vs Pittsburgh

Tom R

Any predictions on the topic of the DOJ press conference tomorrow? Thanks to the Solomon article yesterday Uranium One is a strong possibility. I think the FISA abuse scandal falls under the National Security division but any news on that should be coming from Horowitz,

Pinandpuller

I'm developing a new conspiracy theory around Project Veritas featured jerk offs slow walking the NCIS system for Red States. Is it even possible?

I never had an issue before from GHWB to BO. Just passed a Homeland Security background check no problem. Just renewed my CDL and Hazmat with five freaking forms of ID and domicile.

Out of curiosity what other states are moving to eight year renewals for DL and gun permits?

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

Also note, Sessions was subpoenaed by the House today. (Explosive source? Real reason to recuse? We really don't know diddly here)

He was in Utah with Huber today... supposedly.

Jack is Back!

Dave,

It could even get uglier for you guys. The Caps came to play and the Bruins not.

Beasts of England

Strzok is the one I think they'll try to use as the fall guy, henry. Of course, he can't blow his nose without permission from above.

Rosenstein is boxed-in like no one in history. And he's not stupid; he knows he can't escape. Whether he flips or not I can't assess - he's that arrogant.

And I know it was a typo that you included Sessions in that group. ;)

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

Also note, Sessions was subpoenaed by the House today. (Explosive source? Real reason to recuse? We really don't know diddly here)

It has been reported that Sessions was in Utah meeting with Huber today. Follow on with that?

boatbuilder

The Bruins are still in preseason. Oog.

James D.

JiB, they gave the stat before the game that Ruuk (the Boston goalie) had one won in 15 starts vs the Capitals, so clearly they have his number.

Looks like it will be one win in 16 starts now...

JimNorCal

I'm getting a Planned Parenthood ad on the sidebar which features RBG. The photo gives life to this old rumor. Truly, there is a resemblance!

Dave (in MA)

My ugh wasn't a response to you, MM. I have NBCSports and TBS going in separate tabs.

JM Hanes

Henry:

"Also note, Sessions was subpoenaed by the House today."

He was subpoenaed to produce documents, though not to testify. I'm on a different computer right now, so I'm sorry I don't have a link to the info, but the documents demanded include a bunch of FISA stuff, IIRC.

henry

WI real ID DL is 8 yrs; CCW is 5.

maryrose

We will find out for sure tomorrow .
Or not.

JM Hanes

And of particular interest, Goodlatte (sp?) demanded unredacted docs.

henry

Thanks Clarice and JMH, busy today. Missed that detail.

henry

Sessions in Utah with Huber: Utah US Attorney's office caught the ricin mailer. But it could be a multi item agenda.

boatbuilder

Am I the only one who wants to know if the FBI interviewed anyone from the PGA? ;^)

mad jack

this press conference is likely to be about the arrest of the dude who sent the powder in the mail to PDT and mathis et al. i think we will be kept waiting on the 4d shyte forever. i truly hope i am wrong. i really do but...

maryrose

Dave in MA:
Your post on 25 Page megathread was really funny!

JM Hanes

I somehow skipped over a bunch of posts and didn't realize clarice had already mentioned the subpoena.
