Since things seem a little slow now that the circus has left town, how about a little news from the art world?

Remains of Montaigne Found — in a Bordeaux Museum, where the were "extracted" from a basement tomb! They are pretty sure the coffin was that of the philosopher because it didn't confirm to geometrical norms. Sounds like he's been communicating with Mazie Hirono, considering his view that "science does not exist, but only a general belief in science."

Hitler Birthplace to Become Police Station

[A]fter years of legal wrangling… the government looks to prevent the building from becoming a neo-Nazi shrine.

Artist Seeing Red Over Plan to Remove 'Charging Bull' from Financial Hub, to protect the children New Yorkers. Moving it to the Stock Exchange. I've tried to picture how the artist originally managed to set it up surreptitiously, when the thing weighs 7,000 lbs.

German art worth €300m disappears in China I'm sure someone with a working memory can provide an appropriate a quote from the Princess Bride to cover this:

SHE SAID:

The works are part of the MAP collection belonging to Maria Chen-Tu, a German woman of Taiwanese heritage, who said she loaned them to a Chinese businessman to show them in Chinese museums, Deutschlandfunk reported. After several such exhibitions, “I asked that all the works located in China should be returned to my depot in Hong Kong,” she said
HE SAID:
The businessman is identified as Ma Yue, who told Deutschlandfunk that he had been assigned to sell the works and show them in exhibitions for a period of ten years.
Does anybody think that art is going back to Hong Kong?

Well, at least my reading comprehension appears to be intact, if not my IQ. Checking out that tweet thread on the highway bridge sign, I thought that Q has a certain Scarlet Pimpernel Redux quality. although I suspect I'm not the first to make that observation.

Good luck, Buckeye. The only game I attended at the Shoe was when the Troy Smith led Bucks beat State Penn, featuring JoePa sprinting to the locker room with an intestinal urgent matter.

>Question for Jack - I seem to remember Rod Rosenstein stating that when he signed/signs FISA warrants, basically saying "hey, the lower level folks do X, Y & Z. I'm practically a formality." Maybe I'm misremembering, but I thought he said something to that effect. If so, then how does his statement about this issue (if I read your previous comments correctly) about knowing about this change.

What he said in Jone of 2018 is that he was not the affiant. Because he wasn't.

The affiant is the person who reviews everything associated with the FISA application including the Woods Procedures that affirm every single thing in the application has been verified and confirmed.

That's the person who is fucked.

JM Hanes,

“They seek him here, they seek him there
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere
Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
That demned elusive Pimpernel”

I haven't read anyone comparing Q to the Pimpernel, but it's a darned good analogy!

I ran across a really interesting Q thread earlier today. I will see if I can find it and link it.

What fascinates me about the Q stuff is that there are people who follow that from all over the world, including places like India!

and I will soon release a plan to let Florida and other States import prescription drugs that are MUCH CHEAPER than what we have now! Hard-working Americans don’t deserve to pay such high prices for the drugs they need. We are fighting DAILY to make sure this HAPPENS...

...While we had the first prescription drug price decrease in 50 years, Americans still pay far too much for drugs – other countries pay far less – that is WRONG! We will soon be putting more options on the table...

...Pelosi and her Do Nothing Democrats drug pricing bill doesn’t do the trick. FEWER cures! FEWER treatments! Time for the Democrats to get serious about bipartisan solutions to lowering prescription drug prices for families...

...House Republicans are showing real LEADERSHIP and prepared to enact bipartisan solutions for drug prices. Do Nothing Democrats are playing partisan politics with YOUR drug prices! We are READY to work together if they actually want to get something done!

So, in the post war era they have instead, pretty much worldwide, been tunneling away into the same institutions to convert them to being very imical indeed to their plans, and a lefty is nothing without plans.
Then, you had a conflagration as tyrants assaulted the people's institutions violently because they couldn't or wouldn't defeat them peacefully. Now the tyrants own the people's former institutions and the people's only recourse, if they wish to take them back, is seemingly another conflagration.

Posted by: The Infamous Ignatz | November 22, 2019 at 10:29 AM

You've summed it up nicely. "They" always have a plan. They didn't bank on Donald Trump, but they already had a plan in the works for him and probably one for anyone else who might disturb their timetable. No matter. The plan will morph.

I hate to sound all ledgey, but this doesn't bode will if true (it's the WaPo so who knows), regarding that FBI falsified record (via Althouse):

That conduct did not alter Horowitz’s finding that the surveillance application of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had a proper legal and factual basis, the officials said.

How would they know that? The report hasn't been released. But if so, we may be in for another Horowitz whitewash.

We'd already heard the conclusion that it didn't affect the validity of the application, but that could have been because with or without the application was a complete fraud. Apparently maybe not the case.

I linked earlier to a Byron York piece about the leaking of the altered docs to launch FISA being linked most likely by a report’s named respondent, which would be his expectation from prior respondents acts.

And the alterations were apparently confirmed by the same idiot, I mean, “line attorney” trying to alter an email to support the “edit”.

jimmyk:

I hate to say it, but I've never expected much from Horowitz.
Considering the results of his last "investigation," I'd be surprised if we got much more than "mistakes were made." I don't remember what his CV looks like, but I suspect his sympathies fundamentally lie with his fellow bureaucrats, whose jobs he'd prefer to save. My best case scenario is humiliating revelations, and assessments that don't preclude further pursuit.

Daniel Greenfield gets to the bottom of the CFA cave-in:

The donations were coming out of the Chick-fil-A Foundation. The Executive Director of the CFA Foundation is Rodney D. Bullard, a former White House fellow and Assistant US Attorney. Some may have mistaken him for a conservative because he was a fellow in the Bush Administration, but he was an Obama donor, and, more recently, had donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign while at Chick-fil-A.
