Thanks, Marlene.

Buckeye

MM, so sorry to hear of you BIL's passing.

Praying for your sister, you and the family.

Beasts of England

Prayers for you and your family, Miss Marple.

Jack is Back!

MM,

Sorry to hear of your loss. May the Marine Rest In Peace. Simper Fi!

Jack is Back!

...Semper Fi....

I have been a correspondant and friend with virtually everyone who comes here. You are all awesome people.
TOM R. came here and behaved rudely to people I care about. His "WHY DON'T YOU EDUCATE YOURSELF HORSESHIT" is NEVER going to fly with me. He is a rude self absorbed ass-hole. HIS CHOICE.
A year ago, TOM R. was crying his pathetic eyeballs out at Memorial Day. We exchanged a few posts about our families sacrifices for America. Tom R, was rude as usual. I pointed out the extensive sacrifice that members of my family had made for America and even Britain. Tom R decided to tell me to (and I quote) "FUCK YOURSELF".
He did so twice. THEN, Tom R, rude person, decided that I was a "dick', and he got to decide who is a "dick", even after telling that person to "FUCK YOURSELF" twice. He has continued to be rude to people I care about. Yesterday, he was RUDE to Henry. Henry is a REAL LIFE friend of mine, and Tom R gets NO free pass from me. You see, I'm still sore from FUCKING MYSELF. I could go on and on about TOM R whining like a little girl to to others asking why they don't tell me off. Telling me "he's glad I'm not dead", crosses a line, that I will not abide.
Tom R. wants to play tough guy. He's not tough, he's a whining cut and paste artist who is almost always rude. And I'm not dead.

Jack is Back!

Masters: first tee time is 9:05AM, Eddie Pepperel goes off with a marker.
Last tee time is 2:45 when Molinari and Day go off. The first six on the leaderboard are all major winners.

Why should Radical Left Democrats in Congress have a right to retry and examine the $35,000,000 (two years in the making) No Collusion Mueller Report, when the crime committed was by Crooked Hillary, the DNC and Dirty Cops? Attorney General Barr will make the decision!

I detect a subtle strategy to split the Obama faction from the Hillary faction. I think this will be quite entertaining.

The Masters and British Open have always been my favorites. I've had the pleasure to play Augusta back in the 20th century, and I've played several of the British Open courses over the years, CARNOUSTIE being my favorite. Closely followed by the OLD COURSE at ST ANDREWS.

Beasts of England

It looks like the next wave of storms won't hit Augusta until tomorrow afternoon. I hate that it may happen that way, but buy some extra pimiento cheese just in case it's a Monday finish. ⛳️

Beasts of England

You played ANGC with your grandfather and a celebrity, if I remember that correctly, GUS. And fired a damned fine score, too.

Jane

MM, Sorry about your B_I_L. It's tough whenever it happens.

Mom-to2: hope the surgery goes well - and I want to share in Capt Hate's praise. I'd like to take lessons from you on handling loss. (Actually I'd rather not have loss but that seems unavoidable)

Had cocktails last night with Mr & Mrs Marlene and it was great to see them. I'm such a hermit but I have to see more of them next year.

The season here is ending. For some reason the permanent residents (me) love it when the season ends. But there are some people I'll really miss.

Melinda

Not even the sycophants want to hear them being publicly stroked by Begala:

GUS

Henry Fonda Jack.

For what it's worth Jane and Jack. I am feeling very quite well, and I am thinking about rescheduling my Florida trip very soon. I really REALLY look forward to seeing both of you, if we can.
I'll be in touch.

Buckeye

Jane

You are only a hermit because you have to spend summers inside next to the air conditioning duct:)

GUS

Beasts my apology. It was Henry Fonda.

Jane

Buckeye,

I've always been a hermit. Partially because I'm not married (and during certain ages everyone was) and partially because I've been a news junkie since college.

But I kind of like it. I do have cocktail hour here every night and see my friend then, and I go to the pool. Other than that Kiwi and I do our own thing!

MissMarple2

rse,

Checked. Yes, a V on the award citation, during the Tet Offensive. (You know, the battle we won but the media had most people convinced that we lost.)

GUS

Beasts, Alan Pakula was the member who hosted us.

Jack is Back!

MM,

If your sister is writing the obit, make sure she has his DD-214 form which is a summary of his service and will list all his awards. Being a jarhead in VN means he has earned at least 3 more ribbons. Bronze Medal with V, means combat action. Plus he will have a unit award, overseas and VN service award among others. If she needs help interpreting the 214, have her go to the nearest VFW, American Legion or DAV post.

Melinda

That Wikileaks dump looks real:

Beasts of England

Thanks, GUS - that's bigly!

Jack is Back!

GUS,

Wow. Alan Pakula was your host? I will never forget how he died. He was on his way to his home in East Hampton driving on the LIE when a truck in front hit something and a pipe it was carrying slammed into Pakula's car killing him instantly. A very freakish accident.

Marlene

It was a terrier palooza at Jane's,three Yorkies and Scout. Adorable dogs. :)

Narciso79

Cool gus, he was a lefty but not insane about some moonbat took his name to post their screeds.

Jane

"friendSS" I do have more than one!

GUS

My Grandfather was close with Pakula, GF lived in Greenwich, the Stuart Fla.
Used to get 20 bucks for my birthday from Uncle Alan.

That's a real mess, like a blue whale did a discharge,

Nice. Retaliation? Who knows?::https://techcrunch.com/2019/04/12/police-data-hack/

In my inbox this morning:

“And the three men I admire most: the father, son and the holy ghost, they caught the last train for the coast, the day the music died.”

Don McClean/American Pie


Did the music just die in America with the recent arrest of Wikipedia founder, Julian Assange?

I believe so.

We can’t possibly cover the depth of this event in an email.

So, we’re going to cover a few points and illustrate the significance of the danger that’s been loosed on the world.

One thing you can bank on is that the world is one step closer to war as a result:

1) Assange is NOT an American citizen.

2) He was extradited from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for the purpose of being brought back to the United States.

3) The USA will no doubt want to put him on trial for ensuring Hillary lost the White House.

4) The British police say they were invited in the Ecuadorian embassy where he has been holed up since 2012.

5) The rumblings behind the curtain are that the Democrats are behind this, hoping to force him to say he got Hillary’s emails from Putin.


This whole mess doesn’t pass the smell test. In fact, it stinks…Royally.

This battle is just getting started.

Keep in mind, those who are after Assange are the same people after you and me.

More so, the arrest of Julian Assange is meant to send a message to all Americans and journalists: be quiet, behave, toe the line. Or you will pay the price.

Journalists saying the “British police were invited in The Ecuadorian embassy” forgot to mention the part where the US made the recent Ecuadorean IMF loan ($4.2 Billion) contingent on Assange’s asylum being dropped.

Hmmm!

Buckeye

Don't know if I agree this means we are closer to war, but otherwise seems a reasonable synopsis.

GUS

I'm so glad that the LAWYER/CLIENT privilege that RODHAM enjoyed with STRZOK et al is being held in high esteem when it came to Cheryl Mills and others, but not with Trump and Cohen.

Beasts of England

'The USA will no doubt want to put him on trial for ensuring Hillary lost the White House.'

I think that's entirely wrong.

Catsmeat

That wikipedia dump seems both legit and comprehensive--he's got stuff going back to at least 2004 and covering the world's scandals all over (from FARC to Druze). The most interesting thing I found was a longish email from Colin Powell telling HRC how to get around security measures with her Blackberry--she was right that he gave her advice about what she did and that she did it (though he warned that the info he had out of the system was incidental and not important and that she should do likewise--as we know, she didn't). There's a huge amount of info in this dump--it will take millions of people to get through it all--remember the media's call for citizens to help them go through Palin's emails? (and there's something in there about Palin's emails to boot)...

Buckeye

I get your point Beasts.

I took that to explain motivation.

Buckeye

Regardless, I expect the press to do their best to exploit his prosecution as a potential way to re-invigorate the "Russian Collusion" narrative.

They sure don't want to let that go.

GUS

Buckeye, the MFM are LIBTARDS. They CANNOT let the HOAX/FRAME=UP go. They are part of it.
They went all in DEC 19, 2016. The SCAT was about to hit the fan in 3 weeks. It has been delayed 2 and a half years thus far.

Beasts of England

No problem, Buckeye - I just can't control my bulldozer personality sometimes... ;)

MissMarple2

Jack,

She had the DD-214 and went over it with the funeral home director. They decided to only list the Bronze Star with V (now I forget the exact phrase she told me) because she figured since she put the Tet Offensive and Vietnam in the obit that everyone would understand he got the overseas ribbon. He left the Marines as a captain.

I cannot be too picky with her about how it is listed, as I am sure you understand. She is trying to make everything perfect and this is extremely traumatic for her because it was so sudden.

lurkersusie

Maybe it was about getting Assange for posting the
Podesto emails.

Jennifer Jacobs
@JenniferJJacobs
Rod Rosenstein at private lunch today at Metropolitan Club said don’t forget what Mueller probe was about: cyber crimes. When it comes out, lot of what we see will deal with *that*; it’ll clear up questions about Russian election interference, he said, people in room told me.

Hey Beasts, that is one of the personality traits we respect and admire!

Can't go through life being a wallflower:)

MissMarple2

lurkersusie,

So, Jennifer Jacobs did not have lunch with Rosenstein nor did she speak with him. She is reporting what "people in the room" told her.

WHAT people? Waiters? People eavesdropping at a nearby table? Did they even understand exactly HOW the Russian election interference would be clarified?

This is typical media gossip similar to the last 2 years. Notice how she authoritatively begins that tweet like she knows exactly what's going on, when in fact, by the end of it we discover she is simply repeating gossip.

Captain Hate

Having Powell implicated in the coup would be a bonus. If ever someone deserved to have his reputation placed under the magnifying glass and critically dissected it's that pompous backstabbing ass.

Beasts of England

New thread

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

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

Beasts of England

lol, Buckeye!!
