s/b take back

jim nj

This article appeared in my local paper April 1st. Interesting in light of the Feds taking down a telemarketing scheme that billed over #1 billion for braces that wern't needed.

https://www.app.com/story/money/business/consumer/press-on-your-side/2019/04/01/nj-woman-sent-back-brace-she-didnt-need-medicare-taxes-paid/3128794002/

She answered the phone and hung up and they still sent her braces she didn't agree to take.

I wonder if this is at all tied into the late night TV ads I see offering free braces to Medicare users.

jim nj

Speaking of late night TV ads I hate the lawyer sponsored ads looking to convince people that they've won the lottery by being a victim of some notorious company.

Vultures who take your information and then pass you off to somebody else for a piece of the action.

They found the wreckage of the Japanese F-35.

The Russia Hoax was originally aimed at Flynn, not Trump.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Well, not just that comment. The article and many of the comments

jim nj

nytol,

I think Jim is right, Gen. Flynn, as well as Trump, was a target of our intelligence agencies. They could not withstand a close look.

jim nj

They botched Syria big time and knew it.

Good news is the F-35 didn't end up in Chinese hands.

Bad news is an F-35 crashed under mysterious circumstances.

Re. the crashed F35: First one assembled in Japan? That a major USAF asset is built outside the US seems problematic to me. I realize it was always destined for international sale (as all aircraft eventually are) , but construction?

Pilot had only 60 hours on the F35.

Another Bob

Re. the changes at DHS: ABC “reported” that an unnamed official called in a bunch of reporters to tell them that the reason for the purge is those peoples’ refusal to clamp down on asylum policy.

Local scumbag radio tacked on their editorial comment that it had to be Steven Miller.

As he’s the last Trump loyalist left, expect a media campaign to drive him out.

No doubt they are going to try.

Miller is, if nothing else, a throat slitter. I suspect he will give it back in spades.

This could be enjoyable:)

jimmyk

My skimming of that JW ‘cover up’ story suggests that it’s not so much a cover up as just total indulgence of Hillary’s violations. It’s as if no one was willing to enforce the law and State policies and procedures, so instead they sat around wringing their hands trying figure out how to clean up her messes. Not so much an active coverup as a failure to do their jobs. Fine distinction, I suppose.

henry

Firing for cause. DC needs moar of that.

And to clarify my comments on Miller: I appreciate that he’s a Trump loyalist, and that he wants to clean house. Glad he’s on the team. My opinion is that he’s better at doing all that behind the scenes than he is at appearing on MFM shows with hostile interviewers.

Health note--my right shoulder has been bothering me and it occurred to me that it was because I was sleeping on it but it's hard to change a habit that occurs when you're not awake. So last night I placed a pillow on my right side so I could not fully roll over on it--voila! problem solved. Shoulder is fine today. If you are having shoulder pain and this might be the cause, you might want to try this.

Threadkiller

From Patterico's asylum:


So far the IRS has seemingly allowed all the evil stuff in the NYT story you linked. Nothing has been proven in court it’s all allegations that haven’t gone anywhere in decades.
But keep pounding. You’ve got a hammer so Trump must be a nail.
Has anyone ever told you you are vindictive when even slightly crossed? Or prompted you towards introspection and self inventory?
If so, I’m guessing you responded by mocking them, arrogant in dismissal.
Don’t eat yourself from the inside out over Trump. He is just another flawed human who became a leader. One of the ongoing themes in the Bible is a parade of deeply flawed leaders. Moses murdered an Egyptian. David committed adultery and sent Uriah into the heart of the battle to be killed.

Have a better day tomorrow and an even better day the next.

That the loon's supervisor hasn't made him shut down that online insane asylum points out the complete inability and unwillingness of the legal profession to self supervise, particularly prosecutors offices.

James D.

the complete inability and unwillingness of the legal profession to self supervise, particularly prosecutors offices.

Exactly.

This is why people (like me!) become anti all government, anti-law enforcement, anti-FBI, etc.

Because even though we are told over and over and over that the majority of people in those jobs are good, honest, honorable people...they do NOTHING to police (what we are told is) the tiny minority of bad actors.

Given claims Huber or Horowitz has been doing this for the past 2 years, why would Barr have to start anew as reported here? Perhaps all that lack of evidence of an investigation was the lack of an investigation, not superhuman leak security?

from the WSJ teaser, SDNY nailed Trump!!!!:

The Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office has gathered more evidence than previously known in its criminal investigation of hush payments to two women who alleged affairs with Donald Trump, including from members of the president’s inner circle.

Prosecutors interviewed Hope Hicks, a former close aide to Mr Trump and White House communications director, last spring as part of their campaign finance probe, which ultimately implicated the president in federal crimes.

I am leaving shortly to go to the grocery, before we get rain.

henry, I am so sorry you have snow flurries. Could you check on President Trump's Twitter feed from time to time? Thanks!

I am going to be gone for 2-3 hours because I have other errands to run in addition to the grocery.

Dan Crenshaw
@DanCrenshawTX

Notice that many people conflate the terms “illegal” and “legal” immigration.

This debate is about whether we should have operational control of who enters our country.

Why should some immigrants be able to illegally cut in front of legal immigrants? Does that seem fair?

This is not something i should have to disclose to some HR or payroll clerk.

While the new form hasn’t been released yet, the IRS last summer put out a draft version and instructions seeking feedback from tax preparation companies and payroll firms. Instead of claiming a certain amount of allowances based on exemptions – which have been eliminated – the draft form asked workers to input the annual dollar amounts for:

Nonwage income, such as interest and dividends
Itemized and other deductions
Income tax credits expected for the tax year
For employees with multiple jobs, total annual taxable wages for all lower paying jobs in the household

Manuel Transmission

Ig,

That read about like I would expect. Mixed signals all around. Arp, the only guy who ever seemed to look at it without all the unverified baggage preceding his observations, came to some elegant conclusions that he backed up with images. The fundamental, utterly unverified assumption that affects all others is whether all red shift = velocity. Age, space warping, all kinds of things might affect it, but noooo! We have our consensus and we’re sticking to it.

"Spying DID OCCUR" on the Trump campaign

A quote from Barr today!

Jane

Even tho we all knew that, it's HUGE!

Tom R

Based on the fact Barr confirmed the Obama administration was spying on Trump I imagine the Democrats and leftwing media will soon be in full attack mode claiming Barr is a partisan stooge for Trump and unfit to be the AG.
