Off to the pool!

This will be portrayed by some nutter somewhere as an attempt to attack immigrants and embarrass Ilhan Omar.

I'm unclear why this is a bad thing?

Immigrants who support a barbaric practice like FGM SHOULD be attacked. Ilhan Omar SHOULD be embarrassed at all times.

What am I missing?

James D.

Oops!

JIB,

Where can you watch the Masters before 3:00PM? (other than Augusta that is)

She defended 9/11 which was planned by two of the players in the Mogadishu ambush, atef and adel, the last is still alive in Syria somewhere.

As we now know, in sworn testimony given in the United Kingdom, not even Christopher Steele would vouch for the dossier's accuracy. And equally damaging, in testimony before Congress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page stated that, contrary to standard FBI procedure in counterintelligence operations, the Trump campaign, purportedly the target of Russian infiltration, had not been warned of the Kremlin's nefarious efforts because the FBI did not deem the Steele dossier reliable enough to compel such a warning.

Page's testimony sets up an irresistible line of inquiry. If the dossier was not reliable enough to justify a warning to Trump's campaign about the Kremlin's plot, how could it even remotely serve as the basis for obtaining FISA warrants to spy on the campaign? By her benighted testimony, Page has framed the issue nicely and invited a full vetting of who, what, where, when, why, and how the dossier was used to dupe the FISA court.

Powell has so completely disappeared from the public radar that I had completely forgotten about him.

He understands self preservation better than those other dopes and was keeping his yap shut and hoping to skate on everything. Then the data dump happens. Oops!

Thanks Beasts!

Thanks, Beasts. I was reading my "Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr.Hyde" that Catsmeat assigned:)

Jane,

Its the tail end of the pack now. In the last 13 Masters, the winner has come out of the top 10. So the best time to start watching is after 1:30 PM.

Sidwhite

please forgive this not short OT post.

Buckeye – I feel for you. I had pretty severe sciatica last year. It developed in March and finally resolved in May. During that time, I couldn’t stand up or walk more than a couple of minutes until the pain on my left side became unbearable from my hip down to my feet. I slept on my right side on the couch. I was working remote in a double wide temp office about 4 hour drive away and fortunately, sitting and driving created no significant pain. I managed to walk from my temp quarters to my vehicle, drive, walk into my office, and function. Same think for the trips home.

After 1) waiting (give it a week and see what happens) 2)Chiropractor, 3) therapy, 4) silicone shots, 5) the back surgeon rescued me. Much prayer from numerous friends - family also involved. I had a bulging disk and spinal bone spur that were challenging the sciatic nerve for the left side. I was walking around the block within 2 days after surgery. I have mild sensation in either my thigh, calf or hip most of the time, but I will NOT complain as I experienced what real pain was about for a little over 3 months.

So the message from here is don’t give up. Continue to pray and find the right medical formula to put this in the rear view mirror.

Jack is Back!

MM,

I think in a majority of states, the highest paid public servant in the State is the university's football coach.

While flicking through the Wikileaks files at random I opened one labeled Angela Merkel. It was old, 2007.
A bank on the island of Guernsey asked her to close her account as it was obviously being used to issue bribes.

To those unfamiliar, I am a Lurker from the Libby days back for my bimonthly contribution. Still working full time (semi-retirement is in the not too distant future) so it is hard for me to stay current on comments to be able to make any real-time contribution. Try to read at least 200 comments on each blog, but usually stay a day or so behind. I find this site provides great current insight on what is happening. Lucianne is my other daily go-to. These pretty much keep me familiar and educated with (national) current events. Mrs. Sidwhite is impressed by my knowledgeable discussions when TV news is a day or two late to discover significant events.
Have a great weekend all. Storming here in the Big Country so my plans for today are a changin’.

Buckeye

Certainly true in Ohio. Second highest tier isn't even close.

The latest theme is that President Trump is inciting violence against Omar with his tweets. As this guy demonstrates, the messaging is very consistent with similar phrasing. He has assembled a bunch in this thread so that you can see it:

Jeff Knox, luckiest guy in the world today and possibly tomorrow. He is the non-competing marker playing with Eddie Pepperell who is the last man on the cut. Not many guys get a chance to play in the Masters without earning it:) Last year he played with Rory.

I think he is either a member or part of the professional staff. This is like his 6th time being the non-competing marker.

Buckeye

As this guy demonstrates, the messaging is very consistent with similar phrasing. He has assembled a bunch in this thread so that you can see it:

Coordinated messaging needs to be a theme at one of Trump's rallies.

Don't just call them fake, illustrate how corrupt they are.

Sidwhite

Yes Buckeye. My boss and I had discussion in September when the TDY in San Antonio was coming to a close. I would reduce workload just enough to hold on to employee benefits by the end or 18. That's been moved out a couple of months a few times and I expect we will be nearing '20 when it happens. Starting 2 month TDY in Plano north of Dallas next week. Oh well, golf and fishing next year.

Buckeye

This year I plan to buy a fishing license and possibly a hunting license.

Last time I fished with any consistency was when I was 12.

This will be my first fishing license in my life!

I have a BIL who is an avid angler, and is retired, so having somebody to fish with isn't a problem.

Another BIL has a boat not getting enough use:)

Neo "...was used to dupe the FISA court."

Wait. Doesn't CJ John Roberts have responsibility for the FISA Judges?

Wait again. If the FBI "tricked" the FISA and all the DAGs and AGs into approving spying on the Trump Campaign, does that make James Comey a liar this week for stating that since all "spying" is done at the "order" of a judge, golly, does that make James Comey a liar?

Question about the Free Market.

So a hot shot college football coach holds up his college by threatening to go work in the NFL for big bucks unless the college matches the ginormous pay.

Since there are only "a few" NFL coaching slots and they are all filled, but there are hundreds if not more college coaches playing the scam, perhaps the colleges should just say "sorry", this is all we pay coaches and make the scale similar to a professor level pay...

The best coaches are always going to want to coach the best teams, nobody is leaving 'Bama for HicksVille U, so what's the risk?

Just sayin.

Sidwhite

Thanks Jane and Narc

Buckeye, for 4 years my son has a travel trailer with an add-on wood frame den permanently located on the gulf at Aransas Pass. He lost the first one in the hurricane a couple of years ago, but he is going great guns now. Been there about 4 years and I have only been down to wet a hook once! Looking forward to more Sid "things to do" time.

Jeff Knox is a member and an Augusta native, JiB. He holds the course record from the Members Tees: a handy little 61.

In 2017, Ohio State Football program value was ranked #1 in the country at $1.5 billion/year.

Seriously big business.

I wouldn't be surprised if Purdue is more than $500 million.

They can afford to pay the coach (CEO).

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 12, 2019

This is the tweet that President Trump already has pinned to the top of his Twitter page, with the video of Ilian Omar and 9/11 at the link.

It remains pinned but he has also retweeted it today.

I am assuming he is NOT apologizing to her.
=====================
Now, for some speculation.

Omar has been very vocal in her antisemitism, support of terrorist groups, and mockery of 9/11. She is a serious problem for the democrats, right?

They would LOVE to get rid of her. She obviously isn't going away, and no democrat would primary her because they are all afraid of her.

What to do, what to do? Perhaps she merits the Seth Rich treatment.

What better way to do it than to get someone to remove her who can be blamed as a Trump supporter? That is what all of those posts saying Trump is inciting violence are all about.

However, the Very Stable Genius knows how they operate. It is quite possible that FISA's have been executed on some of these people because in actuality they ARE working as foreign agents. (Pick from the list: Iran, China, drug cartels, etc.)

What if Trump can catch them ordering the hit?

How's THAT for a Tom Clancy ending?

Beasts, thanks for the info on Jeff Knox. He is a player, that’s for sure.

As a country we have a short memory of history. It was not a bunch of Arab Lutherans who killed 3K+ on 9/11. Then you go to Trump’s tweet and read the first dozen comments and is obvious the Left doesn’t want to remember.

Carrying this over from the last thread. Clarice and I both agreed it was likely the Clintons behind the Manhattan DA’s decision to go easy on Epstein. What I would really like to know is how did the court records get unsealed on Thursday? Was Trump behind that in some manner?

As you know,Lewiston,Maine has a large Somali population. Any "incidents" are seldom reported by the Maine media,but last June they had no choice. A (white) man was killed during a brawl at a Lewiston park. The police have arrested three suspects,including a 13 year old. The brawl was some sort of turf battle about who "owns" the park. At the time,witnesses told police a gang of 30 Somalis and Congolese attacked a group of white people. The police did a very thorough investigation,including a search warrant for a videotape of the brawl. One of the men arrested is now 18,so his name has been released. Emmanuel Knurunziza has been charged with manslaughter after telling police he threw a rock that caused the blunt force trauma that killed the man. The other suspects are charged with simple assault for stomping on the man and causing other serious injuries. The man's (Donald Giusti) family aren't happy with the simple assault charges. To their credit,the family sound like decent people and have held vigils with the Somali community. Law enforcement obviously walked on eggshells during the investigation. The man arrested for manslaughter was found 300 miles north of Lewiston in a northern Maine town. He's been wandering around the state for 10 months. Another interesting fact is that an interpreter translated English into Lingala (a Bantu language) during his court appearance. How long has he been here? Did he attend school?
Are officials "allowing" certain groups to claim turf and turning a blind eye? If this is happening in Maine,I can't imagine the issues in larger cities.

It's been a whole six days since I got back from our trip to Italy and I am finally starting to feel normal. Work this week was a bear. I don't know how people who travel a lot cope with jet lag. Last night Mrs. and I sat down to watch a BBC mystery and both fell asleep without ever finding out who dunnit.

They just showed Jack:The Masters on CBS before the telecast coming up now. In it they chronicled his history of winning 6 of them including the famous 1986 one.
