Another Bob

Ext, Janet, it's all about:
1. Tom's construction of his fact-free conclusions, all based on his interpretations and conjectures.
2. That when questioned demands hard evidence despite the utter lack of his own.
3. That he questioned Clarice who, I suspect, JOM believes should be trusted as a starting position.

I always wonder about lawyer's terms when defending someone from check fraud.

Speaking of Climate Change, it was nice to see this in the local rag:

Resigning Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke praised by Alaska senators, governor

Alaska’s U.S. senators bemoaned the resignation Saturday of President Donald Trump’s Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke, calling him an advocate of the state’s priorities to develop its resources and unlock federal lands.

Clarice,
It doesn't matter to me on THIS issue, but in the future, if you're searching for an old article, you might try looking for old links on FB.

*go to the news feed page
*type a key word in search
*then narrow search to "posts from" YOU

You can narrow the search by date too.

Anyway....just FYI for future use.

To me, as a woman of color in physics, von Abele’s public words cut deep. They communicate that people like me are not welcome and that progress to dismantle these exclusionary structures is not as far as it should be. Moreover, as a non-Black woman of color, it is important for me to acknowledge that I will never know the experiences of the Black students who were harassed and who are on our campus, as this act of white supremacy was a reflection of the racism that still runs rampant everywhere in our community.

John H,

I brought it down with me. It is in a nice dark, and cool place, waiting for the Christmas Day reheat, and a wonderful brandy frosting. This year I sort of screwed up, and await the verdict of no suet. I got some veal suet and thought I could crumble it better in a blender. Wrong. Suet is 90% water:) But I have plenty of peel, fruit, brandy, a little flour, a few breadcrumbs for binder, etc.

The Beagles got out. I have a different invisible fence here, and you have to keep charging the collars, which I forgot to do. Its incredible that they could squeeze through the fence. Only 6 inches between the twines. Been running around all day looking up and down the beach for them. The croquet players saw them on the courts hunting their way down to the beach walkover. Oh, well, they will get hungry and come home. They always do. Different kind of beagles.

TomR,

I don't really know you. But thanks for your service as a "Screaming Eagle". However, we have already had one OCD guy here, that was so extreme, he deserved a book I wrote about him. Not saying you are the same as Marty aka Ernie Souchak aka Truth Be Told, but, damn guy, you are on the precipice of it. And when Clarice comments, you don't need a citation. She is the citation.

Tom R

This information is for those of us who agree the entire Flynn case makes zero sense AND admit to the possibility there could be some kind of a sting operation going on.

We know from the Mueller sentencing memo that Flynn and his legal team met with the SC 19 times for a total of 62 hours and 45 minutes. That gives us a starting point for guesstimating Flynn’s legal fees. A week and a half worth of billable hours. Obviously Flynn’s lawyers spent some time working on Flynn’s case outside of the 19 meetings with the SC. Anyone have a idea of how much the average DC defense lawyer charges per hour? Once that value is known you can estimate how many hours Flynn’s lawyers billed him outside the 62 hours and 45 minutes already accounted for. The bulk of these hours would have billed after Flynn already plead guilty. The final estimate would tell you how much legal fees Flynn has incurred after already pleading guilty as a result of him agreeing to keep extending his sentencing date which is driving up his legal fees.

Threadkiller

I also didn't see the harm in this particular question from Tom. Many times JOMers serve as fact checkers and proof readers for Clarice's Pieces and their questions and contributions don't get dismissed quite so readily.

At the same time I do understand the built in bias knowing how reactionary Tom usually gets when he thinks his question, in and of itself, also serves as an answer.

Trump tweet(s):

“It looks here as though General Flynn’s defenses are incidental to something larger which is for the prosecution to figure out if it can find a path to Donald Trump without quite knowing what that crime might be. It stops looking like prosecution and more looking like......

....a persecution of the President.” Daniel Henninger, The Wall Street Journal. Thank you, people are starting to see and understand what this Witch Hunt is all about. Jeff Sessions should be ashamed of himself for allowing this total HOAX to get started in the first place!

....The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax, started as the “insurance policy” long before I even got elected, is very bad for our Country. They are Entrapping people for misstatements, lies or unrelated things that took place many years ago. Nothing to do with Collusion. A Democrat Scam!

Anybody know the backstory on this or is this simply McCain's being McCains?

John McCain's family turns on Martha McSally

Meghan McCain’s husband said that Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., would be an “unwise choice” for Arizona senator...Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Republican Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. and a host of the cable television show The View, retweeted her husband’s comment.

I think I should also point out that Clarice's comments here make me think that she is equally frustrated that the citation appears to not be readily available through Google.

I have no reason to not trust Clarice, and I don't think anyone has suggested that she shouldn't be trusted.

We are all in the same boat wrt this particular fact and we should work together to resolve the dollar amout if it important to the discussion.

I differ because I believe the dollar amount is irrelevant in the face of an unrefuted statement from a Flynn family member that he needs money due to a "great burden" placed on him from this legal nightmare.

The source was someone Sara Carter interviewed who said:"“He’s nearing roughly $3 million in legal debt, sell his home, sell his car and is barely able to make ends meet,” said a source close to Flynn. “Almost all his military pension goes to his lawyers and he has not been able to get any new contracts or speaking engagements.”

Lynn CHU: April 10, 2010 was the 70th anniversary of the Katyn forest massacre by Stalin of the entire Polish elite, which FDR let Stalin get away with pretending that the Nazis did it, till, almost by accident, the truth came out in the 1950s. On 4/10/10, nearly the entire Polish conservative leadership, President, prime minister, cabinet officials, parliamentarians, journalists, were wiped out in a suspicious plane crash on a Russian runway. In another interesting coincidence, 9/11 is the birthday, which Putin and the Russian secret police celebrate every year, of Felix Dzerzhinsky, the father of the Cheka, the original Soviet secret police (a Polish aristocrat turned communist), renamed with regularity, but formerly known as the KGB and today as the FSB (2002 was Dzerzhinsky's 125th birthday).
Alexander Litvienko told a Polish newspaper in 2005 that Ayman al-Zawahiri had been trained by KGB in 1996 for 6 months and sent to infiltrate OBL's Al Qaeda in Afghanistan in 1997. In 2006 the FSB poisoned him to death with polonium. This was the same toxin used on Nikolai Khoklov, a defector of the 1950s, who luckily survived.

So just to verify.

Monday the 17th we get Comey testifying. We might get some enjoyable fireworks from Gowdy grilling Comey but I doubt anything of consequence will come of any of it.

Tuesday--18th: Judge Sullivan will issue some decision on Flynn--- either toss, convict, or delay a decision into 2019.

What else do we have on the Calendar worth watching this week?

I have no reason to not trust Clarice,

Well she quoted me, so I urge everyone here to be very very skeptical.

Another Bob

“The source was someone Sara Carter interviewed”

No worries Clarice. Tom is toting up the bill personally.

Has no idea what Flynn’s lawyers charge, nor now many of them there were, no idea how many prep hours were billed, but it’ll be less than $3M and Carter’s source is a liar.

jimmyk

It's fair to ask for sources. Isn't it also fair to ask for some test that could definitively falsify a theory? The 4Ders remind me of the global warmers, for whom everything (heat, cold, storms, lack of storms) are just further proof of global warming climate change.

henry

I go to the dentist on Thursday. That will have as much impact as I expect from the DC events.

On the Flynn hearing, one nagging question:

Flynn plead guilty to the lying. What bigger (and secret) crime might be hiding in the background? As noted this makes no sense, not even in the conspiracy entrapment of Mueller case.

Cohen has big taxi medallion tax fraud, Manafort has a long list of crap. Both pled to lying. What is the hidden real crime of Flynn?

On the other hand, Pence was pissed st him. Did Flynn listen in on Pence’s phone calls? Just shooting holes in the sky here... something is off, and I don’t know what.

JimmyK,

Loved this line from Darwin's Bulldog, Thomas Huxley:

many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact".

The full line is this, " Science is organized common sense where many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact," but since no Climate tests are ever offered to allow falsifying of AGW theory, AGW theory, whatever it is, no longer meets the common sense definition of Science as Thomas Huxley understood it. Brave New World indeed, Aldous.

Thank you for that fascinating article on the stone gates in the Arabian desert. I have seen articles in the past which indicate SA was greener than today. There is so much we really don't know about the past, despite what certain historians claim.

daddy,

Glad you liked that article about the kid in the Army in East Germany. One thing stood out to me - his familiarity with how cops treated you when they knew your family didn't have money for a lawyer. That smacks of how Flynn and others have been treated by the FBI.

"tweet by Flynn's sister which I'm not sure I completely understand the logic of, but she presumably has more knowledge than most;

“One thing that people/so-called reporters ask-why did he lie?
Did Anyone Ever consider that information He had was Top Secret! And could Not be shared with some random FBI idiots!!”

My absence this afternoon was because I was at Kroger shopping for groceries. What an ordeal! NEVER shop on Sundays.

1. Sale items are sold out.
2. Frozen food item had a hole poked in it that I didin't notice. The cashier spotted it and sent someone back on a run to get a substitute.
3. Daughter's requested items were not as she said, so I had to text her for clarification.
4. Package of toilet paper broke and had to be rebagged into 2 separate bags.
5. Cashier was under 18 so had to call for someone to ring up my Beefeaters.

That's how I understand it. Pence made a public statement that no one had spoken to any Russians. Yates & Co. knew that Flynn had spoken to Kylsiak, so she knew Pence had misspoken. Flynn copped to lying to Pence to save Pence, even though Pence probably made his statement without ever speaking to Flynn. I doubt that Flynn lied to Pence; that was always a b.s. explanation of why Flynn was fired. It was because Pence made an uninformed statement and nobody wanted to leave Pence dangling in the cross-hairs.

When I came down stairs this morning Momma had on the Food Channel with that Giada gal making something. A commercial came on, almost like a Music video, with very glossy, very high quality clips of scenery and people from Myanmar, and the whole gorgeous thing wound up being a commercial to subscribe to the NYTimes. It's images explained how the real story in Myanmar of the booted out Muslim minority was all false and only after the NYTimes started listening to the children speaking the truth about went on and fact checking it did the real story about Myanmar's discrimination against the Muslim's come out. Something like that. Very glossy and persuasive, and it struck me that putting that sort of commercial on The Food Network will reach millions more eyes in flyover country than anything on any of the news channels, and it'll be persuasive since it's glossy and one sided and tugs at the heart strings.

I can't find the commercial so as to link it, but it deserves a parody of Walter Duranty excusing the Times intentional cover-up of the mass starvation by Uncle Joe Stalin of millions in the Ukraine in the 30's. Then finish with the exact same ending about subscribing to the NYTimes.

Anybody else see that? I need to see the commercial again to verify the take I had on it.

Catsmeat,

Very interesting about "Beefeaters", the book.

You may want to skim through some of my favorite novels by English and Indian writers about India. Started on this reading fad when I had a big project in India, and I wanted to get a feeling for the history and culture before I started weilding the baton:)

Forget Forester's tripe "A Passage to India". Really a poor illustration of true India.

I really liked "The Guide" by RK Narayan. But my favorite was "The Great Mutiny" by Christopher Hibbert. "Staying On", by Paul Scott (hope you are into saving Hindus by killing off the leopards and tigers who feast on them). But for historical reference to the blood toll, " The Siege of Krishnapur" by JG Farrell.

There is also "Red Earth and Pouring Rain, by Vikam Chandra that I think you will like. Stay away from "A Suitable Boy". Everyone wants to brag about reading it, much like bragging about reading Proust. Its over 1,250 pages of mind numbing Proust except in English by a Hindu:)

a distant relative had to retain counsel, high-priced New Yawk loyas, to the tune of $140K per month to keep plaintiffs and the government from going after "cash and saleable assets from supposed ill-gotten gains" following the Madoff collapse.

he got in during the 1st decade of the scheme. the late half of the second decade crowd were not so lucky, enjoying weaker returns on greater risk. so the latecomers were suing the early entry crowd for "their fair share." weird. i know.

2 years. $3.3 mil later he had successfully protected his estate and core holdings from the Swarm. he was able to keep what was rightfully his.

that's an incredible burn rate in a high stakes game.

no reason to think General Flynn's loyas aren't burning up billable hours at a similar rate for just thinking about the Flynn case while sucking up that retainer month after month.

though the fees may add up in someone's accounting, the story won't until the levee breaks.

and it will. the cabal has resources but those don't ensure zero vulnerability against wild cards. those will make the difference.

HILLARY SENDS LETTER TO THIRD-GRADE GIRL WHO LOST CLASS PRESIDENT ELECTION TO A BOY

Martha Kennedy Morales is a third-grade student at Friends Community School, a private Quaker school in Maryland. As part of its curriculum on U.S. government, Friends Community recently held elections for class president and Congress. Morales, wanting to win the top spot, ran for president among her mixed class of third and fourth grade students.

Her opponent was a fourth-grade boy.

Even in the seemingly inconsequential election at Friends Community, there was controversy. A second vote was required after six ballots were filled out incorrectly and deemed invalid. In the second election, Morales lost by just a single vote.

Morales’s father became involved during the campaign, writing updates and posting the results on his Facebook account. News of the results eventually traveled into top Democratic circles, with political activist Bryan Weaver telling The Washington Post a friend of his “welled up with tears” at the news of her loss.

Someone who knew Hillary Clinton informed the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee of Morales’s razor-thin defeat.

i commented on this very thing in the wee hours this morning. this is the jihadi lite that will embed sharia controversies in the federal level of government, the all-out pursuit for even more outrageous "unequal protections under law" using 1st amendment law against non-Muslims.

the Islamic code of jurisprudence which encompasses sharia AND the protocols for militant jihad will come in on the hem of that Fakestinian infiltrators garb. Phase 1: jihadi lite (the pen and the phone); Phase 2: the militant application of forced submission ultimatums with the "out" being conversion.

very soon Linda Sarsour, the "American Anti-Semite Muslim Brotherhood" feminist--- of pussyhat march fame--- will get herself elected to the House, as will other "strong women." and Jews will vote for them.
