"The elevation in status means the U.S. attorney for Connecticut will be
able to subpoena witnesses, file charges and impanel grand juries."

where is that from Capt? Conn isn't great but better than DC.

Melinda

How might the NSA database being physically located in Utah play with that GJ and Trial location angle?

I think that's why Huber's been assigned a bunch of this, because it's essentially a form of ID theft, and that's a home jurisdiction. I know this one a leetle too well for my own liking, but IANAL.

We’ve made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought. Why? A few reasons…🧵

This isn't the out Twitter thinks it is. Because now of course the question shifts to: what it "political"?

The tweet referred to "political message reach" being "earned, not bought." That only makes sense if he's talking about paid advertising. I don't see how it could be talking about political tweets in general. That would just be an excuse to censor more tweets he doesn't like, such as Trump's.

Jane

It seems to me, "political advertising" is something you buy.

Melinda

Nice big blanket, isn't it, jimmyk?

And @jack gets to make the definition what ever his little heart desires....

Dorsey is another guy who developed an algorithms without any understanding of personal culture. Much like the Facebook kids. It will eventually collapse them since they don’t understand competition that is coming.

Did Gates ever see Jobs on the horizon? I don’t think so.

Melinda,

Neither of those mokes, Jack Dorsey or Mark Zuckerberg, seem to me to be smart enough to have created their platforms.

"The Democrats have been on this path for 3 years. The first headline I saw...before the President was sworn in was that the Impeachment process was beginning...so this is just further evidence that this is what they had in mind from the very beginning." @senatemajldr pic.twitter.com/scFWSh47Bq

My guess is that on twitter, like Instagram and Facebook, you can pay to "boost" a post. Normally, it shows up as "sponsored" on Instagram. It's a good way to override the algorithms and increase exposure.

Now, I'm assuming that they see this as a way to limit Trump's reach on twitter because I think they've been stymied by how to fix that problem.

Jack is Back!

MM,

Off to dinner.

I think that's right, but I don't see how they stop faux "public service" or 501c3s from doing this. So OFA will have no problem, nor will labor unions.

@seanmdave

The anti-Trump "whistleblower" at the center of Democratic impeachment efforts worked with a DNC official who sought dirt on Trump from Ukrainian officials during the 2016 election.

As another example, I see this group @ATTN that pretends to be neutral but seems to be a front for liberal ideas. They just pushed a video by Obama pretending to be a wise voice of reason, which managed (not too hard) to take in Althouse.

Robin

A comment from Althouse and precisely what I see happening in the progressive conversations around here:

"Why do the Democrats want a candidate who advocates our acting as the world's police and overthrowing governments we don't like?"

They want a candidate who beats Trump. They don't care about overthrowing governments or not. As the Universal Theory of Progressive Instrumentalism implies, their "ideas" are tools: strictly to be used in the quest for power, entirely discardable. Since Trump in effect coopted some of their old notions (no more crazy wars! fair, not free trade!), Dems have been reduced to changing what they believed, especially what the left believed, professed to believe, until the day before yesterday.

Their hatred of Trump and of us is stronger than any ideological conviction.

I was just thinking this morning about the videos of Democrats saying for years what Trump said about immigration and nobody batting an eye until...TRUMP. There is no reasoning with these people. They truly are TWANLOCs.

"RealClearInvestigations is disclosing the name because of the public’s interest in learning details of an effort to remove a sitting president from office. Further, the official's status as a “whistleblower” is complicated by his being a hearsay reporter of accusations against the president, one who has “some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate" -- as the Intelligence Community Inspector General phrased it circumspectly in originally fielding his complaint."

So he’s not whistleblower he’s an Obama holdover, a Brennan/Biden lackey and political operative who was let go by Trump White House in mid 2017 amid suspicions of leaking but snuck back to Langley to spy—yes, spy—on Trump.

Let us start a campaign to say that Biden is trying to harm President Trump in the 2020 election by setting up one of his former lackeys as a fake whistleblower in the impeachment sham.

@Barnes_Law
Note the sequence of events: 1) Trump announces record grassroots fundraising; 2) campaign analysts note Trump spends more on digital advertising than anyone by a 4 to 1 ratio; 3) Twitter suddenly decides to cancel all political advertising. Coincidence?
===========

No, not a coincidence.

Jane

I’m telling you, if any of you are readers, you have ro read this book. ‘ the Plot Against the President”. It wraps everything up and is completely mind blowing.

henry

Twitter is all User eXperience. The fiddly bits are routine. The effort part is in the Machine Learning algos to suppress speech deemed “hateful” (or sane, amounts to the same drill). Since Machine Learning depends on the “training set” it is a poor censor. Thus the humongous and expensive staff of SJWs to “moderate” any thought crimes. (I think he shares that group with Facebook in an accounting fraud creative expense deduction scheme).

UX is not my thing. Fiddly bits are easier. Plus I can make hash via statistics for sure. So I avoid consumer stuff and stick to record keeping and it’s automation.

From the looks of it Durham nailed one bad apple, was moving on to the next and was shuffled out.

I see all the stuff about Schiff and the dog, but find atmospheric science more interesting at this time. I'll be here if Durham indicts anyone, though. Looking forward to it.

Jim,

5 chapters in and I understand completely why the Dems are so whacked. Reading is hard for me - long story - but Smith is so concise that it’s suddenly easy. It started long before the election, when they thought Trump had no chance of winning - but what the hell - some deep state fun to ruin a guy who dared to run.

Tom R

No Melinda, but I know Mueller was helping Whiitey and let several good agents go to jail.

I debunked that misinformation from Louie Gohmert and Gatewaypundit a few months back. Mueller never had anything whatsoever to do with helping Whitey Bulger when he was the US Attorney in Boston. The DOJ had a special task force on organized crime in place and that task force had full jurisdiction on everything related to Whitey Bulger. Mueller was not part of that task force.

Another Bob

Is Mueller a relative, Tom?

The Infamous Ignatz

Even if Mueller and Tom are long lost identical twins what he says about Muleears and Bulger is pretty accurate.

hoyden

There's a new thread in town.

New thread, BTW.

Tom R

Mueller was whiteys enabler under the direction of william weld first in boston and then in the criminal division at justice.

That is an incorrect statement as well. There is a statement from one of the family members of one of the gangsters who were falsely convicted that Mueller was not involved in any manner with the initial trial.
