Jack,

Great to see you! Stay safe!

It's my belief Ohr and Lisa Page have been talking and it appears some whistleblower in the FBI alerted the IG to and provided copies of all seven of Comey's memos.

I've thought all along that Page has been spilling after figuring out she was in over her head. She still has complicity in an attempted coup but is probably the least bad.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

The ocean is definitely more angry today. Still sunny out, but the surf is much louder and more whitecaps and is starting to foam.

I picked Ariel up in the pool yesterday to throw her to her dad, and pulled a muscle near my ribcage. Hurts to breathe.

Ariel loves the water and wants to let go and float on her own in her float vest, but she does log rolls and comes up after her face going under all laughing and happy. I've never seen a 2 year old not afraid of going underwater or at least being nervous about it. She also has learned to blow bubbles underwater and just giggles and loves it.

Dinner tonight at Mezzaluna at European Village.

Jack is Back!

Steph,

You'll like Mezzaluna. Our best pizza place in the area. New York Italian transplant.
Today is also, Frederick's birthday. Sweet 16:) The football team at Canterbury have a surprise for him after practice.

Mrs. JiB and I worked this morning getting our pool, terrace and patio furniture inside. Still have one table and some chairs we will put in at the last minute. As Stephanie has pointed out, the surf is up as is the wind. Not uncomfortable but sort of average,

I don't know if they do this in other coastal states but in Florida the billboard companies along I-95 and I-4 are rolling up the billboard graphics which if kept as is would just blow off and they are out the money for reapplying them.

I measure a 'Canes intensity here by how many palm fronds I have to pick up and stack up at the curb for the waste guys to pick up:)

Jane

It seems to have gone past you JIB, altho I'm sure you are still in the cone.

Jack is Back!

Jane,

I am between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. We aren't getting hit until at least Wednesday, maybe even Thursday. And it is going to be like Ophelia. 50-100 miles off-shore most likely. It's currently on the same latitude as Ft. Lauderdale.

Still a possibility it cam ashore. If it doesn't not good news for the Carolinas.

Speaking of American Cheese:

Many think that stuff in the individual wrappers is American Cheese. Most of it is not. It took me some effort to convince my wife that real cheese (not the "cheese food" or "cheese product") is tasty. The last word should be "cheese" by itself. The rest of it is basically plastic...

The Americanized Mexican restaurants around here serve shredded white American cheese on their tacos. I love it. YMMV.

Guess who the longtime Clinton aide is: Philippe Reines!

Is there a threshold for how low on the pole the indicted can be and it qualifies as good enough for the sentient?

If Srozk is the only one indicted, will that be satisfactory?

I guess what I am asking is who needs to be indicted for everyone to respect the system?

If you will indulge me one more post about last night's game, I think others might enjoy this photo and story. The true freshman quarterback, Bo Nix, played his first college game last night. His dad, Patrick Nix, was also an Auburn quarterback ( 1992-95.)

Auburn was losing with 9 seconds remaining when Bo threw a touchdown pass, winning the game! Here is his dad's reaction from the stands. I think any parent can relate as there is no feeling like seeing your child succeed.

Momto2,

What a great picture! Also, what a great sports story!

Jack is Back!

Believe it or not but are the first delodged outer band remnants for Dorian bringing some rain. If you look at any site showing the storm you’ll see what I mean.

jimmyk

It will take airtight cases with smoking guns, and cajones on the part of Republicans (for which there is precious little evidence), for people at the level of Clapper, Brennan, and Comey to be indicted. I wouldn't bet the farm on it. McCabe and Strzok would be relatively easy fall guys.

Jack is Back!

...but we are getting....

jimmyk

I also think Samantha Power was involved, and probably Susan Rice, maybe even Loretta Lynch. My guess is that Rice and Lynch will have plausible deniability, but Power may have her fingerprints on the unmaskings.

Old Lurker

Nailing an obvious mid level fall guy will not accomplish what Clarice desires: sentient beings having restored faith in the law because exactly the opposite will result. After three years of Trump claiming what was done was done, and after all we have seen that confirms it and worse, waiting until the eve of an election to nail a flunky will be seen as, and will be, simply a confirmation of the two tiers we suspect and the continuance of Bidness as Usual in DC.

Jane

MM,

Windy Daze posted a pix of the Abaco Islands this morning on Facebook. It was pre-storm. The difference is so sad.

Jane

"McCabe and Strzok would be relatively easy fall guys."

McCabe got himself a very corrupt judge. He'll be just fine.

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/…/corrupt-us-attorney-jes…/

But I think Comey is going down.

Old Lurker

Frankly from a political POV and in light of the fact that for whatever reasons the Equal Justice Hammer was slow walked on purpose from 2016 on, the thing to do now is indict the whole damn crowd from top to bottom on every single charge they can dream up. Charge 20-30 mid to top ranked people as well as 10-20 flunkies, create a prosecution team within the DoJ to process them all, making sure that no charges get tossed before the election. Make it the Nuremberg of political trials and ride the wagon train up to and through the damn election. If in that 50 there are 10 GOPe's, so be it. Hope there are.

Old Lurker

Jane "Comey is going down"

Not even close to enough to cure the sickness. Treat it for what it is: a huge conspiracy to steal elections and topple a government by a well oiled and corrupt team of dozens of bad actors and support players.

GUS

OL, nailing a low level flunky will embolden the FULL COMMIE LEFT.

Old Lurker

Agreed, Gus. That will just prove they were right all along.

I think OL is correct.
Lynch is more guilty in the Hillary email mess.
Rice will go down because of that cya memo of January 20th.
They will protect Obama and throw her to the wolves.
Power because of the large number of unmasking will be culpable.

Old Lurker

Rich "then republican congress could barely muster a wimper-"

Congress sure has a role in oversight and in uncovering shenanigans. They can request prosecution. They failed.

But Congress does not charge or prosecute, that is the job of the Executive Branch, under the direction of the Chief Executive. They have failed...so far.

And the Judicial Branch has a role not least in the CJ's direct control of the FISC. And an ability to try to force some consistency in the lower courts. Crickets at best; complicity at worst. They failed.

Captain Hate

Yeah, it looks like it, narc. There are mixed reviews of it on Amazon and, although I realize you have to take them skeptically at times, some of the criticisms, like not knowing if a character is alive or not, sound bothersome.

Catsmeat

Surgery update: six very generous people volunteered to give up up to five hours of their otherwise-off Sunday morning to get Nick’s collarbone back in one piece—two nurses, a surgery nurse, a surgery PA, the surgeon, and the anesthesiologist. All were so very nice and so very competent. They injected something at the very end, the name of which I forget, which should stop pain around the site for 2-3 days. His trainer came by as he was about to be wheeled out, and then his coach called, so he’s getting a lot of loving care. And then he came home to the dogs!
