Roger Stone? He runs with Alex Jones in the land of make believe. The true cutout was Sasquatch... (or Stone’s mother, they can pass for twins).

If Mueller and the Dems are counting on Roger Stone as their big get.... all that comes to mind is Charley Brown at Halloween, “I got a rock.”

The problem with this theory. Is everyone got a copy of the Wikileaks, but that is real compared to that apocryphal Turkish tape out of saw.

Whether Mr. Stone was, in fact, a trusted intermediary to WikiLeaks — or simply a master of puffery that made him appear so — remains a paramount question for Mr. Mueller’s investigators, who are examining Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential race and whether any Trump associates conspired with Moscow’s effort.

What effort was that? Russian efforts to buy Facebook ads in Russian? To organize inauguration protests? To provide disinformation to Steele?

So far, we haven't seen any evidence of any "Moscow" effort to interfere with the election, and as the indicted company's lawyer has mentioned, there's no law against it even if it happened. We've interfered in dozens of foreign elections.

Just silliness.

The Times wonders with the rest of us

Who is this "the rest of us"? It doesn't include me.

As always, one must ask: What exactly is the crime that is being investigated here?

GUS

Not possible. Mueller and Rosensteeeeen are both white hats. I've been told this.

MUELLER is dirty. He's now ignoring RODHAMS ties to RUSSIA including MASSSSSSIVE payments to RUSSIANS for GOLDEN SHOWERS FANTASIES
Mueller must not be aware of this, but soon he'll find someone to charge with something.

HELLO!!!!?? MR RAPIST MUELLER. Check out RODHAM, you'll find plenty of criminal action.

Jack is Back!

One of the problems with these omnibus kind of investigations that gone outside their envelope is they may turn over something some deep staters have been hiding.

Like Seth Rich's murder for example.

I just have this funny feeling that Mueller is leading us to a Black Swan event without knowing it.

Just too many players, scenarios, complexity, etc. Its like walking in the dark, knowing your way, but you still trip over something you didn't know was there.

Also, about half an hour ago I asked in the comments section of the NYT article my question above: "What exactly is the crime here?" My comment hasn't been published. They did publish a couple of critical comments, though, along with the usual moonbattery.

The Democrats might capture the House this year, but every GOP pickup makes that prospect less likely. Here in Minnesota, we have two very strong pickup opportunities, open seats in the 1st and 8th Congressional districts, both of which went strongly for President Trump in 2016. I am pretty confident that the Republican candidates, Jim Hagedorn and Pete Stauber, will win those races.
Until now, hardly anyone has taken seriously the chance that Republican David Hughes can upset longtime Congressman Collin Peterson in Minnesota’s 7th. But, in a stunning move, Real Clear Politics now rates the contest a tossup.

Local gun shop owner offers rabbis free weapons

COLORADO SPRINGS – Following the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting last Saturday, numerous people and organizations have stepped up to raise funds and offer assistance to the families of the victims.

Even the leader of the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh announced that the Muslim community has raised more than $70,000 for synagogue attack victims and their families. There’s been an outpouring of support at many vigils held across the nation.

Just outside of Colorado Springs, the owner of Dragon Arms is offering a different type of support. Mel Bernstein, the owner of the store, is offering to give rabbis a free AR-15 or a handgun. He’ll also include training and ammunition.

TRUMP PROMISES SWEEPING ASYLUM CHANGES AS CARAVAN NEARS

President Donald Trump pledged to sign a comprehensive new executive order which would force asylum seekers to go towards legal ports of entry and to end the policy of catch and release, in a major Thursday afternoon immigration address.

Trump noted that the U.S. military would be erecting major tent cities along the U.S.-Mexico border and pledged that anybody detained seeking asylum would await their adjudication procedures while in custody. The president did not offer specifics on the plan but noted that he will try to circumvent current loopholes which allow illegal immigrants to claim asylum and gain entry into the country.

The president also noted that he had deployed 5,200 troops to the U.S. border to harden ports of entry who would assist in border enforcement. Trump warned the migrants that “anybody throwing stones, rocks, like they did to Mexico and the Mexican military, Mexican police, where they badly hurt police and soldiers of Mexico, we will consider that a firearm.”

You German speakers might appreciate this song:

On one of my numerous hitchhiking trips I met "Poinariu" (name changed...), a then 40-year-old Romanian who fled from Bucharest via Paris (the place where I met them) to Berlin before her violent husband with her young German lover. We hitchhiked back to Berlin together and there I supported "Poinariu" in her attempt to free herself from her repressive husband. At our meetings I saw how she blossomed and began to live her own freedom. And yet, as it went on, I had to watch as she was gradually being haunted and captured again by the "Spouse Demons" from within. One day she didn't come to an appointment and left me only a text message that she would return to her husband. I never saw her again.

Trump fired Roger Stone in August 2015. Stone claims he resigned. Regardless of whether Stone was fired or resigned, anything he did in 2016 relating to WikiLeaks had nothing to do with the Trump campaign.

So if you've been critical of Soros for years and only recently found out that he has a Jewish background, I guess that makes you a Retroactive Anti-Semite.

That's me! I was at a British bank (sitting next to the FX guys) when Soros broke the pound in early 90's. Back int the day I linked to the New Yorker piece in 2004 that described his Billionaire Boy's Club targeting Bush (which mentions his being Jewish).

Si I know I have been exposed to that info. Just in one ear and out the other because who cares?

But obviously some nutters care for real and now libs care that I don't keep score of every possible affront to every possible sub-group.

I would say to them "If you hear the dog-whistle, you're the dog" but they'd fall down sobbing that I had erased their humanity and then waterstains everywhere... who needs it?

Sad, discouraging story: last Hong Kong bookshop selling titles banned in China shuts:

High on the best-seller list of forbidden books were taboo topics such as politics, religion, and sex. From the private life of President Mao to the history of the cultural revolution, mainland customers could leaf through books supporting the 1989 Tiananmen Square movement or essays on the struggles within the Communist party, as well as bluer topics such as oral sex bibles and sadomasochism guides.

When the Chinese government increased its pressure, “the industry experienced a significant turndown and banned book are not published any more,” said Malinda Ye, Acquisition Editor at the Chinese University Press…..

The closure of the shop leaves Hong Kong with no outlet that challenges censorship. Albert Cheng, renowned Hong Kong political commentator, said the concern was that “the ‘one country, two systems’ principle will gradually fade, while Hong Kong will become simply another Chinese city.”

That, of course, is the government's plan. I suspect the owner is hoping go avoid being disappeared like 5 other Hong Kong booksellers, whose fates in Chinese custody remain unknown, I believe.

It is weird how the Dem-Media machine pick which aspect of a person they want to amplify, depending on if they want to inoculate them from criticism or if they want to ruin them.

Why isn't Soros a evil white man? ...or an evil 1%er? What happened to that whole evil 1% crap? Steyer, Soros, & Oprah seem to be exempt.

If I got in trouble, would my 'woman card' carry any weight?...No way. I'd be a Trump supporting, rabid Christian.

The release of the planning docs just shows how f'd up the deep state is. That information was probably in the hands of the march organizers before the press got it.

When Soros had his big estate in Southampton on Old Town Road by the beach access he used to walk the beach down to Little Plains where I would see him. He is small, wrinkled, clumsy, and unapproachable.

The ordance inspector spent a lot of time citing his estate for wasting water by having his irrigation system water Old Town Road. His ex wife still lives here on Cooper's Farm Road. His son was staying in the old Ave Maria Convent on Mecox Bay. No longer a convent but a pricey mansion.

George didn't like Southampton. Too conservative.

JEFF SESSIONS PLANS TO WAGE THE TRADE WAR WITH CHINA IN THE COURTS — HERE’S HOW

The Department of Justice (DOJ) will support the Trump administration’s efforts to counter China’s unfair trade practices by establishing a unit focused exclusively on the prosecution of economic espionage by Chinese agents, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Thursday.

Sessions unveiled the program, dubbed the China Initiative, during a speech in Washington, declaring Beijing’s alleged theft of American trade secrets a “real and illegal threat to our nation’s economic prosperity and competitiveness.”

“This initiative will identify priority Chinese trade theft cases, ensure that we have enough resources dedicated to them, and make sure that we bring them to an appropriate conclusion quickly and effectively,” he said.

This follows the news about Chinese theft of trade secrets from Micron Technology. As some here know, I've been in that business for a fairly long time.

In the 80s, we used to worry about the Japanese, Hitachi and Fujitsu in particular. Believe it or not, in the men's room at a bar close to work there was a sign above the urinal with a "loose lips sink ships" type of message.

Ten years or so later, I had the opportunity to hire some PhD engineers, and the stack of resumes I got from HR was dominated by Chinese green card holders, but also included some Indians (from India) and a small number of Americans, several of whom I hired. (Pretty sure I violated a non-discrimination rule by giving preference to Americans.)

It was obvious at the time that the Chinese would soon learn everything we knew about how to make semiconductor chips. Sessions is closing the barn door after the cows got out, or whatever that metaphor is.

Doesn't a person have to apply for asylum in the first country they come to?

I thought so too, and I remain confident that that is the rule in the EU since they are under one treaty.

However, for US/Canada/Mexico it seems to be different.

EL PASO, Texas, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- The migrant caravan of Central Americans headed toward the United States has provoked an increasingly frustrated President Donald Trump to tweet "people have to apply for asylum in Mexico first."

But for that to happen, there would have to be a "safe third country" agreement between the United States and Mexico. There isn't.

Canada is the only country to have such an agreement with the United States, signed in 2002.

The Trump administration has been trying to secure such an agreement with Mexico for months. With the Honduran migrant caravan headed to the U.S.-Mexico border, two Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee have urged the administration to do so, to "send a message to our partners across Central America that they, too, must share the burden of unsanctioned mass migration."
