Gus,

That a 7 year old girl died in Border Patrol custody is newsworthy, but not the way they are trying to slant it.

No one dies in 8 hours from dehydration.

The press wants to know if the BP fed or watered her?

I'm sorry, but anywhere north of the border, that father would be under arrest for child endangerment.

It would be very useful if we, with our western hemisphere allies, could take out Hezbollah's criminal, financial network.

If you flew commercial you could do a TSA check where they first take the firearms out of the secure case and muzzle everyone in sight while clearing the barrel. That's what I heard anyway.

I know lots of people take their firearms to AK to go hunting so it can't be the hardest thing ever.

A friend of mine's brother died hunting Dall sheep in AK but all the sheep they rounded up had alibis so they dropped it.

Sports Fans, please tell me why it's so important that a basketball player must publicly pronounce that the moon landing was real?

Pinandpuller

What I heard is that the first Super Bowl was recorded over the footage of the moon landing and then they recorded Battle of the Network Stars over that. So really we have very little proof the moon landing really happened other than Suzanne Somers' word for it.

Jim nj,

From your Matewan link: when the 17th-century villages of Matteawan and Fishkill Landing were united in 1913. The name was inspired by the fires that blazed atop Mount Beacon during the American Revolution to warn George Washington of British troop movements

That reminds me that my favorite Tavern in Summit NJ was The Beacon Hill Tavern and it used to have some literature mentioning it's roll in the Revolution as a signaler to Washington's troops of enemy movements.

Is that the same territory? The Tavern was a nice old 'hole in the wall' place that we really enjoyed.

jim nj

Daddy, hard to tell.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beacon_Hill,_New_Jersey

Down the shore overlooked the Raritan River which would have been an attack route for New Brunswick, NJ, which curiously hosted a migration of some Dutch from the Albany, NY, area before the war.

Your club seems to be in Summit, NJ.

https://www.beaconhillclub.org/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summit,_New_Jersey

Wiki suggests that there was a Beacon Hill in Summit. With an elevation of 374 feet it may well have been a good location for a beacon fire.

NJ is relatively flat. High Point, NJ, is our highest elevation at 1,803 feet, but we have a lot of small ridges and valleys.

Mean distance between the ridges would have given several hours of warning about an advancing British force.

jim nj

NJ was a major battlefield in the Revolutionary War.

Off the top of my head, Boston evicted the British army and navy. NJ suffered several attacks. The British lost at Saratoga, in part because of a planned campaign against Philadelphia. NJ was never captured. Upstate NY and New England were lost to the British, which made NJ the new choke point to be eliminated.

With NJ still in the mix they could communicate northward through NY. And they could communicate to the south.

When the British shifted their attack to the south, they eventually wound up in Yorktown pursued by the southern forces. Washington, with his forces, slipped out of NJ, and met the southern forces at Yorktown.

NJ had several setbacks, with the British gaining control of many areas, but they were always retaken.

JOM must be breaking the odds for long-term marriages and parents over 90.

I'm half in that category. My mom is 87, she had one aunt who lived to 101, another to 97. My paternal grandmother lived to be 92, and my aunts on that side are all in their 90's and still going strong.

The men in my family, on the other hand, don't tend to live nearly as long. So we'll see who i take after.

Hi Robin!

Maw would crank out 5 dozen on Christmas Eve morning for post-Mass gorging on Christmas afternoon. Along with medudo and her legendary enchiladas.

She didn't use any grasa in her masa nor did she use pork in her fillings. But she had this way of making her masa light and flavorful---- she'd boil a pork roast in "las palmas" brand enchilada sauce until it fell apart. the broth got mixed in her masa concoction. sooieeee!

her fillings were several: 1)beef with chili sauce (ancho); 2)chicken with ancho sauce; 3) green chilis (halved- deveined) with a strip of jack cheese - from Monterrey!; 4) minced jalapen~0-- straight no chasers; 5)"sweet tamales" with raisins seeded into the masa, no filling (the abuelitas would come over and dunk these in their Chase and Sandborn instant coffee Maw would serve them, their favorite cafecito).

Maw didn't use measuring devices of any kind. And she taught me to do the same.

Tom R: that link re the DIA papers affirms my "belief" that military intelligence is the backbone of POTUS' strategy to take down the Deep State.

There was an article, which i'm sure you remember, about "Trump's Spooks" from early last week(?) that laid out the theory.

i also have a theory that Mossad has been useful gathering information and evidence of CIA/FBI misdeeds. The US military intel and Mossad combination has the juevos to bring the entire mess down--even snaring The Rat and his NatSec cabal of Rice, Power, Brennan, the Clap et al.

just broad brush stroking here. Solomon has been annointed as the media mouthpiece for planned dissemination of information it seems to me.

what's your take on the impatience and pull the pin on this declass "yesterday already!"

i think the use of military tribunals are imminent. and it's why Mueller is being allowed to taunt Trump with federal judges who seem to grace the SP with favorable decisions--- building the case for Trump to execute the cabal in military courts.

at any rate.... i do confess to finding the slow drip excruciating in the wake of losing the House. everyone likes to win *all the time*, right?

James D @ 8:39

Something did happen. John Solomon is on Hannity pretty much every single night. At no point since Flynn was indicted has anyone ever reported that the DIA, who Flynn used to be the commander of, possessed exculpatory evidence in Flynn’s favor.

You can infer that whoever Solomon’s source is leaked that information to him within the past day or two. That tells you that there are some people, likely military if the leaker is from the DIA, who know the truth and want that information to be made public. The other comment that should stand out was the comment that Trump doesn’t know about that DIA information. That tells you whoever leaked that info to Solomon is a Trump ally. Now the public can call for the declassification of the DIA info. If Trump declassified the info, his enemies would say he is obstructing justice or some other BS.

Mrs Kid is taking a lil longer getting prepped for public appearance this morning. it's always worth the wait. she can make sack cloth look fit for the red carpet.

just read MM's Federalist "bombshell article"---

"On Tuesday, attorneys for Michael Flynn filed a sentencing memorandum and letters of support for the former Army lieutenant general in federal court. The sentencing memorandum reveals for the first time concrete evidence that the FBI created multiple 302 interview summaries of Flynn’s questioning by now-former FBI agent Peter Strzok and a second unnamed agent, reported to be FBI Special Agent Joe Pientka."

Doesn't this appear to be a misstep by the SP? It opened a door for the judge to order release of all existing 302 material.

Will this turn Mueller's giordian knot into a hapless slipknot re LTG Flynn?

The judge can still take dismissal off the table.
But wouldn't such a glaring miscarriage of justice by a federal court judge cement the case for using military tribunals when POTUS goes on the attack?

Should the judge order a dismissal of the LTG Flynn case, wouldn't that put severe pressure on Mueller to wrap up his weenie smear report, and turn over his "roadmap for impeachment" to the HOR to take up come January?

all right then. more sewage. sorry. :D

daddy,
Here is the straight [non Chester] poop.
Your sister can ship the guns to a dealer in Alaska for you to receive them from. She doesn't need to take them to a dealer on her end.
HOWEVER, she can't use the US Post Office to do it. If they were long guns she could but USPS regs prevent private citizens from mailing handguns.
So she can UPS or FedEx them to your dealer. She might want to check prices because it might actually be cheaper to just take them to a dealer on her end and use the USPS, considering it's an AK thing.
Not sure why you can't just toss them in the cargo hold of your plane next time you're in Indy but you know company regs better than me.

I don't agree with TomR's [and RG's] 4D chess ideas.
Having said that, Tom does keep track of a lot of details and corrects a lot of mistaken beliefs. He can be prickly, but aside from the odious troll no one here is more criticized or personally insulted than him, usually prior to his prickliness.

Moreover, while I don't subscribe to 4D theory, neither do I think Trump is simply sitting there with his hands on the proof of what a bunch of criminals out to get him have done in the past without a plan to make them pay one way or another.
Part of the problem is he is hemmed in so long as Mueller keeps monkeying around which is no doubt why Mueller keeps monkeying around. But it strains credulity that he has not instructed investigations to proceed regarding the vast treasure of abuse by these creeps.
I mean to say, the Collyer report indicates 85% of the searches of NSA and FISA stuff is improper? That by itself is an astounding level of corruption and lawlessness.

My belief based on Trump's history is two components are delaying things;
1. He can't compromise ongoing investigations and;
2. He takes seriously the idea that Mueller and the Dems will really try to remove him from office and he has packaged up a doomsday event of dirt that he won't use until Mueller and the Dems get to their end game.

I know the midterms were viewed by some as the be all and end all but perhaps Trump doesn't see it that way. He isn't dumb and he has shown in the past a pronounced ability to think strategically and long term and to play things close to his vest until he needs them. I see no reason to start thinking otherwise.

Narciso79

I think that's a fair reading, thats why there is all this chaff released.

Senator Feinstein’s 2016 senior staffer (with Gang-of-Eight security clearance) was Dan Jones. It was revealed this year that Dan Jones sent Fusion GPS over $50 million to continue work on the Russia Conspiracy angle after the 2016 election toward the ideological goals of removing President Trump. [See Here]

The [See Here] link goes to a piece that says no such thing, and there's no reason to believe that Jones would fork over that amount of money to Fusion GPS.

He's overly argumentative in support of a lifetime creep who personifies the excesses of the Deep State, based on a brief meeting with DJT prior to his appointment as Special Counsel in which nobody knows what happened. Plus Tom consistently defends the power of the state over the rights of the accused.

So while Sundance's claim as to where the money is being siphoned was wrong, its use is as he stated, which in a lot of ways is more troubling. How many other secret prog hit squads are out there?

--Did Jones really say that? Here's from the website:--

Here's what the Congressional report says he told the FBI;

Jones met with the FBI and described PQG as "exposing foreign influence in US elections."
It also quotes someone [not clear if it is Jones and they forgot to redact his name one time or if it is someone else from PQG] that 7 to 10 wealthy donors had given him $50 million to do so and he had funded Fusion and Steele from that and intended to give PQG's entire holdings to the FBI.

Seems to me, considering what we know has occurred and what was told to the FBI, it's a pretty safe bet Jones is doing exactly what he said he's doing and rather less than what his company's prospectus claims.

I agree he keeps track of a lot of details but I think he corrects only a scant few "mistaken" beliefs.

Mostly, he counters opinions that lack evidence with his own opinions that lack evidence. That doesn't correct anything.

Except Ryan had no interest in a maga agenda, in fact his surrender is in no small part responsible for the lack of enthusiasm that led go the House lost, hes just a slimmer boehner.

So, I'm wondering if any of the WS cheerleaders might get a clue that maybe just maybe they are the ones who need to rethink their beliefs and join the fight on the right side rather than the rest of us being a bunch of uncouth morons.
Yeah, I know.

That's just crazy talk, steer into the iceberg, the hull will only be dinged.

in the words of Thurston Howell, III, "Ye gads! A Yale Man!"

The reason I never applied to Harvard. I would rather be uncouth than fit in with those dandies.

Applies to WS too.

TomR has time and again reminded me of issues, statements and FACTS that counter what someone else has said.
Anyone who has an opinion about a lot of this stuff, from any side, necessarily does not have all the evidence. But for some reason his assumptions and his person are particularly subject to ridicule.
