Has anyone in the MEDIA/MFM ever investigated FRANK GUISTRA and the relationship of URANIUM ONE, and the CLINTON FOUNDATION?????

This is what ANONAMOM is aluding to. We cannot trust the MEDIA, nor ANYONE in the FEDERAL GOVT, in any position of responsibility or POWER.

Well there you goRich.

Scratch that, they make ted levines monks boss and buffalo bill from silence of the lamb brennan.

I am HALF-BRITISH Miss M. I actually lived in Scotland as a child. It hurts to see what the TRUTH is. There was a reason that ANDREW PICKED Sarah Ferguson. It wasn't because she was a sweet virginous vision of WIFE and MOTHERHOOD.
Most of the ROYAL FAMILY are rich spoiled clingers.
UNFORTUNATELY.

GUS

A-bob, you LITERALLY took the words out of my mouth.
Par for the course, the Brewers are mediocre and cannot take advantage of their own largesse.

I feckin' LOVE baseball, and I've gotten used to 45 years of ZERO from my Brewers.
They ALMOST made it last year. Almost doesn't count.

GUS,

True, and I am one who was brought up with an Anglophile mom who LOVED Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and the rest. I even watched Prince Charles's Investiture as Prince of Wales.

I think I started giving them a side eye when Diana was treated so poorly.

Anyway, Andrew's involvement in this doesn't completely shock me.

GUS

I hate replay. In any fashion. Unless the rules are designed to get it RIGHT, it's useless.

Braun still has massive opposte field power.

Narciso

Well anyone who would camilla bowles to diana, probably needs to have his head examimed.

GUS

MissM, I have always loved your interest in the BRITISH ROYALS. I have always been very very proud to be the son of a SCOT/BRIT. Sometimes the fantasies or portrayed notions of things are hard to give up.
I still love Britain.

Born to Royalty. Why are they relevant to anything???

What did Prince Andrew consort with EPSTEIN for???
Epstein doesn't even have a College degree.

anonamom,

You may be right. The question is, why?

GUS

A-Bob, you are an honorary CHEESE HEAD.
Rich, my first MLB game was in D.C.. As a kid, I saw the Senators play the TIGERS in 68. Denny McClain pitched. Ted Williams was the SENATORS manager. I was a little kid, and I was hooked.

clarice

anything's possible, anonamom, but you can rarely go wrong betting on laziness and incompetence.

GUS

Laziness and incompetence is Par for the course.
To buck the trend can be hazardous to your health.

Joan, I watched a bit of season one of Billionaires, found it a bit over the top, to say the least. The wife of the DA is the in-house shrink for the guy the DA is pursuing like Ahab? And it goes on from there. Mrs K loved it, though.

The journals front page screans the tariff which wont arrive for two weeks even with the exemptions.

Billions, yes its implausible but remember andrew ross sorkin to wrote that doorstop on the subprime crash and still mamaged to miss the point. Is that shows eminence gris.

I saw a few episides hard tp tell who is more loathsome damian lewis or giamatti. Ans yes considering whar the former character did, its still a tossup.

Much microeconomics, and the ending is not as happy as klingsor, large part why putin stays in power is because people remember the chaos the outright theft of the 90s in russia and rightly or wrongly the liberals are blamed for much of it.

Always had a soft spot for Damian Lewis after his portrayal of Dick Winters in Band of Brothers. Felt like I was a actually watching the real deal regarding the guys in the 101st.

Saw an interview of him later and he seemed ... a bit of a modern British PC lefty. Oh well, I'm still pulling for him.
Haven't seen Billions yet.

Narciso

Thats why i left out what this master of the universe, of course having been the manxhurian andidate on three seasons of homeland suggests a clue.

GUS

I am fascinated about where EPSTEIN'S wealth came from.
I am very very logical. Epstein had no COLLEGE DEGREE, and he had no cache entre into being a FINACIER, or some svengali to the WEALTHY.
Yet he had millllllllllllions or even billlllllllllllllions OF WORTH.
How so???
All of the ARCHIVED stories of EPSTEIN being a Harvard connected benefactor or advising member of some nonsensical GROUP or COMMITTEE is laughable. This creep with TONS OF CASH, that has no reasonable reason to exist, is just accepted into the INTELLECTUAL CASH REALM????
His CONVICTION vis a vis, SOLICITATION for PROSTITUTION and a SENTENCE that was allowed to be mitigated to HIS OWN FREEDOM to go to work.
NO ONE NOTICED????? NONE OF THOSE HE FINANCED or PAID NOTICED???? He was KNOWN to cavort with BILL CLINTON??? No one, no MEDIA OUTLET ever investigated where his MONEY came from???????
Even after his conviction???

matt - deplore me if you must

How many years was Epstein facing? My understanding was that the Federal charges were something of a rehash of the state charges. If so, wouldn't that be double jeopardy?

If the Feds raided his residences and the underlying case is flawed he could have walked. And with the attorneys he could afford they could have muddied things up very nicely.

I have a bot of a different perspective. When I lived in Dana Point 40 years ago or so we lived across the street from the Brown family, as in Nicole Brown. They were maybe 16-17 and extremely hot. Your California beach blondes. Saturdays I would be out in the driveway washing the car, a Mazda rotary getting ready to go bracket racing at OCIR. They were fast little suckers.

The sun would be shining and some 35 year old guy in a Porsche or an Alfa or name your exotic would pull up and one of them would jump right on in and off they would go. I got schooled in the way of the world young.

I hate to say it but my sister was the same. Ended up marrying a guy 30 years older.

As it was, my soon to be ex is 13 years younger than I and her first hubby was @ 40 and she was 18 when they got married.

Lots of daddy issues and lots of other issues as well. I'm not generalizing; just reporting what I saw and experienced first hand.

Not excusing Epstein, but there is plenty of jailbait out there. That's why they invented the word.

GUS

Rich!!! I think you're a little happier now.

The Arc of Billions is bitter enemies, cautious allies, seeming friends, back to enemies but only one side knows at the cliffhanger.

GUS

Pin, that is simply the logical conclusion to the FULL COMMIE.

The WISCONSIN LEFT, is absolutely COMMIE.

Pinandpuller

Damian Lewis was good in Homeland, when Homeland was good.

He’s also in a Stephen King ensemble movie.

Narciso

Thats a fair summary pin without guving too much away. I havent seen since the firsr seasom, but the description seem apt.

GUS

Rich, again!! I love your passion.

Narciso

Yes i stuck with homeland probably through season 5.

Another Bob

That’s a good point Matt.

Adding to that, every so often I find some reason to pull out my high school yearbooks from the ‘70s. Whether it’s culture, nutrition, hormones or whatever, sixteen year olds then don’t look like sixteen year olds today.

Posted by: joan | August 17, 2019 at 04:52 PM<<<

far be it for me to try to cheer someone up, but this i think is far to gloomy. i do think that dark times are upon us, but no where near as worse as we have seen before. i do have faith and hope. i do think we will finally sober up, figure out that we have to solve our problems, vote out the crooks, jail the ones that won't stop bothering us, and start a new american century.

GUS

Matt, I've read MFM tomes on EPSTEIN facing 45 years or such.
EPSTEIN was DONE. Never to see day light again.
Never to bang juveniles again. Never to black mail again. He was USED TO having and doing anything he could ever want.'
He was DONE. Baked, put a fork in him. No more fun and frivolity.
Epstein was accepted as a PRIVATE SCHOOL TEACHER in his YOUTH. The CON began. He may have been smart or even BRILLIANT, but he was not HONORABLE, HONEST or IN ANY WAY QUALIFIED.
THE REST IS HISTORY.

GUS

Rich, the MOOSE is LOOSE.

Great game my brother.

He was hoffwnbergs and wexners instrument and the former was a piece of work but even nack in 2004 witj landon thomas who wrote puff pieces for fortume and other publications that still had clues, now wexner bank rolled romney and was pushing jeb was he a fusion donor, thats left unclear.

joan

The thing about Billions that has surprised me is how much I loathe Giamatti. And, because we've been going thru what the previous administration did and has contined to do since leaving office, has made me pull for Axe, Damien Lewis's character, even though he isn't all that admirable. Everything Giamatt's character does makes me angry. And, I'm pulling for the bad guy to win, instead of the 'supposed good guy'--who represents our government working for the people.

The show is over the top, and Lewis and Giamatti are histrionic at times, but I am enjoying it.

GUS

Listen to this nonsensical horse shit.

so how did he miss signs of the billionaire's sexual deviance?

This in reference to Prince....Prince....Andrew.

How did the RICH BY BIRTH NANCY BOY not recognize his pal's sexual deviance??? It's so much beyond comedy. PRINCE ANDY is a SLIME BAG.
What would indicate OTHERWISE?????

Narciso

Exactly joan chuck rhoades just needs a mustachs to twirl and he is exactly in the comey fits schneiderman vein.

joan

Aw, rich, your 10.19 is almost sweet. :) I guess I'm fed up with the left. Everything that comes out of their side is perverted.

GUS

Joan you are correct. There is NOTHING about the LEFT that is honest or believable.

BLUF: Revolution underway in Hong Kong -- You saw it here first...
I've been going to dozens of protests and watching and listening and talking and often just sitting there taking it in.
This movement contains all the elements of revolution. There are many groups involved and so you might here different things from different people with different goals and analytical abilities.
Those who have read my work for years know how well I am able to analyze situations such as this -- and sound crazy all the way up to the point that my analysis was obviously correct.
Bare bones, in skimpiest detail, the situation:
1) Pre-existing conditions make near perfect conditions for rebellion: cultural, language, governmental, economic, and other conditions created a wide gap of mistrust and unease between 'native' Kongers and Mainland Chinese. This creates extreme vulnerability
2) Mainland Chinese and the government are systemically abusive to Kongers and on their face wish to eradicate, control, and absorb Kongers. Kongers resent and do not want this. Extreme vulnerability.
3) Extradition treaty was a ton of straw suddenly dropped on the camel. The spinal snap was audible the world 'round. I heard that snap and flew to Hong Kong.
SNAP!
The treating created an inflection point in early June 2019. I heard the snap from thousands of miles away and flew to Hong Kong in late June.
By mid August, I have seen enough. Remember my track record in Iraq, Afghanistan, Thailand, more. Extremely good on taking in these situations and finally giving a trained opinion that withstands time.
4) Massive protests in early June.
5) I arrive late June.
6) July/August: Protests morphed into General Civil Unrest. This is a completely new phase and should not be confused with the previous protest phase. Yes, protests are still occurring and they look the same on television, but they are not the same. This is General Civil Unrest.
7) Even by June, certainly through July, and now full steam in August, some large element of the "protestors" are doing all the right things to unseat the current government and fully rebel against China.
They are:
7a) Organizing at an astonishing rate that I have never witnessed before. In just three months, Hong Kong is on front end of full rebellion, and nobody on the press to my knowledge has noticed this, nor have any analysts to my knowledge noticed this, other than Chinese who are busy blaming CIA. (Note: CIA...if you are behind this, kudos and high five. You are doing great.)
7b) The rebels are doing a fantastic job discrediting police and other civilian government. This phase is an essential aspect to transit from protest to civil unrest to rebellion/insurgency to open operations to revolution.
7c) Rebels have earned sympathies of the vast majority of western press.
7d) Rebels have seized the initiative and are controlling -- at this point -- the pace of operations and the gas.
8) If this indeed contains at the nucleus some form of managed rebellion, at the three month point they are wildly succeeding. Protest phase is behind. Civil unrest is growing and succeeding. Rebel base is growing. Options for Hong Kong government and China are bad.
At this point, I see a lot of people who have lived here for a long time or who have read some war books who do not yet believe what I am saying. The core of this engine room is running on the steam of rebellion coal. Or, as Hong Kongers keep saying, add oil.
You are witnessing a rebellion.
These are not protests. We are in the Civil Unrest phase and that is growing, and soon, my guess, you will hear more people openly calling for rebellion.
The local government in Hong Kong cannot resist this forever, and Chinese intervention will bring more oil from international hands.
Big days unfolding. Where this ends, nobody knows, but where it is heading at the moment is clear: the goal is not those five demands. Those are nothing but talking points and hat hooks. The goal is to oust the current government and resist assimilation by China.
Bet on it.
Remember also what I have been saying about the "trade war." Finally, so-called experts are recognizing what I have been saying clearly since the first days: we are not in a trade war with China. We -- USA -- are directly attacking the Chinese Communist Party and our goal is to destroy CCP. If Hong Kong stands strong, and they are showing promising signs, Hong Kong may well eventually become an independent country.
Sounds crazy. But remember my track record on things like this and place bets accordingly.

Oh my, Joan, thank you for asking.
I am doing ok, the Doctor tells me that my foot wound "granulation" is going well. It will be a while until I am back to normal, with a foot that has healed and has scar tissue.

Really, I have no choice. Positive or miserable.
Thank you for asking, and thank you for caring.
I'm OK, and I'm healing. AND AND... i'M being POSITIVE.

Yon has been everywhere in HK, talking to all the different groups. He's more knowledgeable about what's going on than anyone else..In a way he reflects what Mark A Thiessen (AEI fellow and former speechwriter for Gw and rumsfeld said in an op ed this week in the Wa Po--China does NOT have the upper hand in this.

GUS

Clarice. China will do what China wants to do...vis a vis HONG KONG.
The CHINESE GOVT, does not care what harm comes to it's populous, nor has it ever cared.
The British were MORONIC and NONSENSICAL in giving HONG KONG "back" to the COMMIE CHINESE.
No different than US/U.S.giving the PANAMA CANAL to PANAMA. It's stupid and ridiculous.

Clarice,

If a communist country needed to be taught “liberty”, would largely peaceful protests versus an executive as odious as Carrie Lam be a nice segue into the program?

This is a war against “The Princes” of the CCP., not the Chinese.

(Time well tell, but I believe Xi has picked a side already, and it’s not princely.)

GUS

Mel, Communist China, isn't going to play nice.
They hae made it clear that they are not going to be intimidated by HONG KONG freedom seekers.

Gus - so glad to hear you are healing!!!!

Joan - We've watched Billions since the 1st episode. Its one of our favorite show. There are so many good series on TV these days but I hate that it cuts down on time I would normally spend reading. The only time I read a book anymore is when we take a road trip. I'm trying to get through John Sandford 's newest book and I've also got Daniel Silva's newest book waiting for me. I need to turn the TV off I think.
