The thing about what is obviously the Weissman theory of obstruction is that it makes the prosecutor king.If perfectly legal conduct can be deemed obstruction whenever the prosecutor with no objective basis for doing so decides it obstructs his take on the case, we really do have no need for judges or juries or--come to think of it--laws, do we? It's like the inquisition or the witch trials.


She and her husband were co chairs for Romney in 2012, but that's to be expected

Dealing with Zoolander is probably good training.

Meanwhile back at the monkey house

I feel increasingly as though “Republicans” by and large represent opinions I disagree with. Watching Ted Cruz mock the idea that a distortion of the report could matter when the report itself came out a few weeks later, I realized that I had much more in common on this particular issue with Pat Leahy and Dick Durbin, who were asking Barr how he could possibly have failed to mention the Mueller letter when asked by Crist.

That said, Pat Leahy and Dick Durbin will vote to smear good judges and confirm awful ones every time, and Ted Cruz will vote for and support the good judges every time. So let’s not get carried away here. I haven’t changed; I just despise the Republican president even more after the issuance of the Mueller report than ever before.

Finally, Mainstream Media is getting involved - too “hot” to avoid. Pulitzer Prize anyone? The New York Times, on front page (finally), “Details effort to spy on Trump Campaign.” @foxandfriends This is bigger than WATERGATE, but the reverse!



Why Barr is our new hero.


Lyle: glock

Absolutely unfamiliar with Glocks other than that the grip angle throws off my aim because I'm not used to it.

I'm sure you Googled, "glock stuck slide". Lots of different approaches.

I tend to agree with Ig, though. I use a 1911, Springfield Armory, and CZ75B.

This is a statistic I had never seen before.

In the United Kingdom the name (Mohammed) has been the most popular in England and Wales for six straight years according to a report released in September, as well by the British government.



BREAKING: US created 263,000 jobs in April, vs 190,000 expected


I think the sentiment expressed above 'I hate him 3000, vs 'hes a good man'


HUGE jobs reports out! Best since 1969.

Ample evidence to justify further investigation into whether DOJ and FBI ran a shady counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign, misled the FISA court, and gave Clinton a pass because of political bias.

There is no head of the deep state. It's not like this is something that just sprang to life under Obama.

The bureaucratic state has been growing and mutating for decades. Many people have various levels of involvement, some all in and some not so much. Some are true believers, some are transactional players and some just seem guilty by association or circumstances.

It can be used by (mostly) Democrat administrations in various ways and degrees to influence or downright destroy. There are players inside the government and outside for things like funding (Soros), media (Fusion), nefarious deeds (Halper, Mifsud, Chalupa).

This isn't all black and white. It's 500 shades of grey which is what makes it so difficult to know who is a good guy and who isn't.

Cmm is still totes for bland vanilla.


I'm so impressed with Trump's tweet from last night telling Congress to get together to accomplish some stuff. I'd be tweeting that all of them are going down. He's truly amazing in his demeanor.


Well certainly Pompeo or haspel dont control it now but there is a whole superstructure like thise germans in their bunkers.

Momto2, I’ve had the opportunity to go to/through the UK roughly yearly since the mid-‘80s. You can see the steady change that brought them there.

They’ve thrown their culture away. Same is happening here.

Mayor Barrett's proposal to extend Milwaukee's streetcar line by just 0.4 miles will cost $28 million. That's $13,257 per foot or $1,104 per inch!

On my mind:

I am beginning to believe--and would like the question to be asked by TBTB, just how many candidates have been under surveillance?

I suspect--since we are fairly well assured that the spying on DJT began in 2015--that every single one of the Republican candidates were placed under investigation, i.e. were spied on at the beginning of their candidacies. The spying continued, in my estimation until they dropped out, or until they were no longer considered to be an option as a Veep candidate.

I think the concept might have been to initiate activities on all, and then close down those activities as a clearer picture emerged of who the R candidate would be.

Likely a small network completely apart from various classified main network(s) was created to capture all information on the various investigations.

Many have suggested that the investigation into DJT was known as "Crossfire Hurricane" in homage (or nod) to the Rolling Stones' song.

Possible, sure.

But, here's another idea. Not sure if I got the information on the "X-Fire (pronounced "Crossfire")" software here or elsewhere. (See below.)

What I think may have happened is that that the Crossfire software was used to track the various investigations into all/ALL of the Republican candidates. "Crossfire" as the prefix name to distinguish the investigation from more traditional on-going FBI efforts.

Anyone 'in the know' would know that the "Crossfire" prefix regarded an election investigation. The suffix "Hurricane" was the (my guess) suffix applied to DJT.

Similarly, there may have been (and I believe there were) an investigations into all of the candidates, e.g.:

Jeb Bush Crossfire alpha
Ben Carson Crossfire bravo
Chris Christie Crossfire charlie
Ted Cruz Crossfire delta
Carly Fiorina Crossfire echo
Jim Gilmore Crossfire etcetera
Lindsey Graham "
Mike Huckabee "
Bobby Jindal "
John Kasich "
George Pataki "
Rand Paul "
Rick Perry "
Marco Rubio "
Rick Santorum "
Scott Walker "

AnotherBob - That entire article was frightening. It appears their strategy is to infiltrate the capital and larger cities of every country and then start reproducing as quickly as possible. It reminds me of how cancer cells perform.

I'll see your 2015 and raise you to February, 2009.

NonSeasonally Adjusted NonFarm Payrolls was up 1,126,000

Private payrolls +1,060,000

Wayyyy, way stronger than the headlines.


Yes another Bob, the word Is al hijrah, which happens to have been the name of aulaqis Virginia mosque.

Well, sure, and no argument. James Rosen, Sharyl Attkisson, et al.*

I suspect the domestic spying operation was massive--in this I think we are in violent agreement, Melinda.

The OPM loss of data on those of us with clearances might have been part of the coverup... But that is some-dimensional chess of many wearing some-colored hat (!), mainly black.


* but in so far as the election spying began, obvi could not begin spying on candidates until they announced; that is, unless they were already being spied upon as potential enemies of the people.


heh, suck it Evers:



"Little Nads" Nadler will huff and puff a lot today.

Hope he gets drowned out by the sound of SHTF on multiple fronts.


It contradicts an earlier headline


Sandy Daze

Brennan's CIA was spying on Feinstein's intell cmte:



No wonder we haven't seen press coverage of this committee meeting.

Climate Statistician Dr. Caleb Rossiter: ‘We are trying to save the people of the planet from the people ‘saving the planet.'”

Climate statistician Dr. Caleb Rossiter from the CO2 Coalition hijacked the Democratic Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and the Democrats climate hearing on Capitol Hill on April 30.




They surveilled any and all philosophical opponents. It's part of the Cook County Skool a Bidness curriculum. They can't help themselves.


MM's early morning link reminded me of a quote by John Rees-Davis (Gimli)

There is an extraordinary silence in the West. Basically, Christianity in the Middle East and in Africa is being wiped out – I mean not just ideologically but physically, and people are being enslaved and killed because they are Christians. And your country and my country (Wales) are doing nothing about it. ... This is a unique age. We don't want to be judgmental. Every other age that's come before us has believed exactly the opposite. I mean, T.S. Eliot referred to 'the common pursuit of true judgment.' Yes, that's what it's about. Getting our judgments right, getting them accurate. ... We have lost our moral compass completely, and unless we find it, we’re going to lose our civilization.

RIP Peter Mayhew the actor who played Chewbacca.

Oh, no. We used to see him here in Austin where he lived for a time. He used to patronize the independent video store where my BIL was managing. Softspoken, unfailingly polite and friendly. RIP.


The initial response of cell death can nearly overwhelm the body--don't be discouraged if you hear he's in the ICU in a day or two.

Thanks so much for this information and for your encouragement, anonamom, and I'll keep you posted. I know he is required to stay in Houston for a few more weeks to be near the clinic, surely for just that reason.


What a week for Trump. Damn straight he will take a victory lap (or five).
