narciso, I surely remember about de Man--also Heidegger, also Althusser, also (their name is legion, that is of radical theorists aligned with the powers of darkness...no need to go to Lysenko...)

Yes it was some of the dreck I encountered whenever I did literary criticism, but I found about de man, and heidegger nazi connection, only recently did I discover about hannah ahrendts connection to him and most recently to marcuse.

Discovered some of the dreck, you try to write a straightforward paper on goethe's Faust and you had to wade through this,

Closing in

Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson was in contact with a State Department official who had close contacts with dossier author Christopher Steele, according to emails recently obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The September 2016 emails show Simpson was desperate to make contact with Jonathan Winer, a longtime associate of then-Secretary of State John Kerry.
Winer has been confirmed as a source for an article published the following day. That article, written by journalist Michael Isikoff, was the first to publicize Steele’s claims about Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Another Cohen-related narrative bites the dust. WaPo reported that House Dems were investigating pardon discussions regarding Cohen. Turns out, it was Cohen's lawyers who raised the idea, which was rejected. Cohen has insisted he wants no pardon.

Any theories on why we are so quick to give Israel a pass on stuff like this?

Israel has a long record of getting U.S. military technology to China.

In the early 1990s then-CIA Director James Woolsey told a Senate Government Affairs Committee that Israel had been selling U.S. secrets to China for about a decade. More than 12 years ago the U.S. demanded Israel cancel a contract to supply China with Python III missiles, which included technology developed by the U.S. for its Sidewinder missiles, The Associated Press reported in 2002

January 4, 1962
NEW YORK (Jan. 3)

Gradual democratization of the Soviet Union and the abolition of wars by 1987 is predicted by Israel Premier David Ben-Gurion in a statement published in the current issue of Look magazine which carries a number of interviews on the world outlook 25 years from now. Mr. Ben-Gurion’s statement reads:
“The image of the world in 1987 as traced in my imagination: The Cold War will be a thing of the past. Internal pressure of the constantly growing intelligentsia in Russia for more freedom and the pressure of the masses for raising their living standards may lead to a gradual democratization of the Soviet Union. On the other hand, the increasing influence of the workers and farmers, and the rising political importance of men of science, may transform the United States into a welfare state with a planned economy.

pin's 12:18 has a weird significance for me. I once defended a lawsuit brought by Peter J. Spielman, Associated Press editor. I have taken his deposition. He sued the company I work for, for personal injuries out of a slip and fall accident. He was one of these libs, like Pauline Kael, who didn't know anyone who voted for Nixon. In between questions about his personal injuries (most of which were imaginary) he just assumed that everyone else in the room was just as liberal as he was. He cracked wise about Sarah Palin. It was my chance to see a journalist close up and to realize what morons most of them are.

On the eve of the special counsel's report, the Democrats' 'Russian collusion' narrative is fading for one reason: because there was no collusion. It was a political conspiracy theory. To say the case "fell apart" would be kind—because there never was a case from the beginning.

There are multiple 302's, including one written 7 months after Flynn's interview.

I remain convinced that the FBI should be required to record all interviews on video and preserve copies. I cannot understand why no one has questioned this situation that has allowed agent recollections and impressions of witness interviews to be accepted as actual evidence.
