Are we there yet?

If the House is racing Vance for the tax returns... what is the prize for the winner?

Ambassadors have little to do with foreign military sales, which is something je dyer was trying to explains. As for other assistance thsr comes through aid. These matters would be handled through the company or the nsc; i thought miss hill would be the leaker because of that.

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam today invoked emergency powers and banned face masks, saying the order goes into effect on Saturday, Oct. 5. Consequences for breaking the ban include up to one year in jail and a fine of 25,000 Hong Kong dollars ($3,187)

Posted to a dead thread, not even one of the multiple universes of this one.

On the encryption issue, I haven't read what Barr actually did, but why wouldn't this fall under the same tent as search warrants? Granted the potential for abuse, but we give up privacy if a judge decides to give police a search warrant. There has to be probable cause, etc. So shouldn't the government be able to get a warrant to search our phones? I'm as suspicious of government as anyone, but if Muhammad and Achmed are planning to blow up Grand Central Station, I'm ok with letting the government get into their phones, subject to getting a warrant.

Hey everybody yesterday as a comment on a Facebook post I saw what was supposedly a screen shot of the whistleblower form, specifically the part “whom do I submit my complaint to?” This screen shot showed a whole list, with the ICIG in the middle, but also congressional intelligence oversight committees on the list. How sure are we that all complaints must first go to the IG? (Of course I can’t find it now because Facebook is evil...)

Was up at Columbia today and saw this:

The inscribed names above the columns are Homer, Herodotus, Sophocles, etc. On the banner above they've put Angelou, Anzaldua, Chang, Hurston, etc. Who's going to explain to these snowflakes that no one is going to know who those people are 100 years from now (if they even know now)?

Jimmy, CBP and I think TSA don’t need warrants to search your phone or other electronic devices.

Even in warrant situations, are you required to provide passwords / decryption keys which may be only in your head?

Narciso79

The second is in her own words a queer chicana poet, i dont know who chang is.

Hurston? Is that a character from the TV series Gilligan's Island?
No, that was Thurston

jimmyk

narc, putting those names up against the likes of Plato and Aristotle has the opposite effect of what they intend. Like putting Ray Oyler in the Hall of Fame.

Narciso79

I know its an outrage.

JM Hanes

This like one of those progressive (old sense) dinner parties, where you go from house to house for each successive course!

henry:

I marked this quote for comment from something you posted yesterday:

"“During a phone call with Xi on June 18, Trump raised Biden's political prospects as well as those of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who by then had started rising in the polls, according to two people familiar with the discussion.”"

According to whoever wrote it, I assume this was supposed to represent compromising behavior of some sort, but when a lot of people (including some of the usual suspects from the previous administration, I believe) have been advising Xi not to surrender ground to Trump because he will not be reelected, I think a few words on the prospects of Biden and Warren would be both sensible and well warranted. I wish I could recall the context precisely, but I do remember there was a specific point at which I got the clear impression that Xi was rather suddenly backing away from cooperation with Trump, presumably having been persuaded to wait him out, in favor of dealing with a new Democratic administration.

Narciso79

More nuanced than the transcripts presented;

Excellent, excellent point, JMH.

Jack is Back!

Is this the officially designated thread or are we using all 6 of them?

Threadkiller

Nice try, TM, but I think TomR will still find us...

Get well TomR!

jimmyk

Anyone else seeing posts appear, disappear, and reappear. Typhuspad must be in the hands of the IC.

Jack is Back!

I have now going to all the other dummy sites and it appears this is the most active and current site. But I could be wrong.

JiB:

I've decided to stick with this thread for the time being, but I had to pull your comment over from one of the previous iterations of the JOM universe (don't ask me which!):

"This is not the house with the best treats"

They could probably hear me laughing next door. And I can't even see my neighbors. So funny!

JM Hanes

Not the right choice, apparently!
