And Happy Birthday clarice


Donald J. Trump
Manufacturers are being held back by the strong Dollar, which is being propped up by the ridiculous policies of the Federal Reserve - Which has called interest rates and quantitative tightening wrong from the first days of Jay Powell!


Happy birthday Clarice!


So do these have to go all the way to indictment? Horowitz last referral (McCabe) got a pass on prosecution. The institution gets the appearance of being cleaned up while no deep state pension is threatened. I truly expect no different here.



This is a pretty informative article.


Rocco,how is the storm? We have to keep the cabin plowed for insurance purposes,so the plow guy is on speed dial. :)


Exactly. Barr saw the need to prevent Mueller from continuing to press for an obstruction charge.

In this instance, Horowitz has already forwarded material for further investigation and possible prosecution to AG Barr. Barr is well aware of what's in the Horowitz report, and lacking a similar pre-emptory move as with Mueller's report would appear to be satisfied with what Horowitz has produced.



Former Haitian Senate President Calls Clintons 'Common Thieves Who Should Be in Jail'

An eyewitness to the Clinton Foundation's corrupt dealings in Haiti says virtually nothing has been done to help the victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti that claimed an estimated 200,000 lives, and that the Clintons are nothing but common thieves who should be in jail.

Sandy Rios of American Family Radio interviewed former Haitian Senate President Bernard Sansaricq on Thursday, and the enraged Haitian had nothing good to say about the Clintons. He angrily claimed that they brought their "pay to play" politics to Haiti at the expense of the Haitian people.

Jack is Back (Again)!

There are laws then there are DC laws.

Horowitz is looking at DC laws broken not the laws of Wisconsin or Ohio or Okalahoma.

Ipso facto. Nothing here, folks.


Barr only has to keepupthe integrity of the FBI and DOJ . He can point the finger at Brennan, Clapper and Baker at Department of Defense for deceiving the FBI into opening up the investigation. Only have severalproblems why did Comey offer his services to this endeavor and memorialize his conversations with Trump toimplicate him and McCabe'sconflict of interest and lying.


Page and Strzock may be free but public opinion of them and FBI is low.

Yes! I found out over the weekend that someone I dated briefly in college went on to become an FBI agent. My first thought was, "Oh, dear! I wonder if he was corrupt? " and then, "I'm glad I didn't marry him!"

I am very disappointed in our Ga. governor! Some are speculating it was due to $$$. Anyone who has had anything to do with Stacey Abrams should be automatically disqualified. Many pro-life groups are upset that he would appoint her so I suppose she must be pro-choice.


Not surprised that the Clintons turned the Haiti appeal into a slush fund for themselves.
I think about 3 percent of the money actually went to Haiti.
Even Rodham’s brother got in on the grifting.
I believe McCabe will be indicted because all of his appeals failed. Not yet a definitive answer regarding his future.
I believe it will be 6 or more people.
Anyone who signed the FISA warrants has to answer to the court for an unverified document.
Maybe even 10 people are indicted.



Not too bad, we had about a foot, heavy and wet. I actually fired up the snowblower last night during the game when it was obvious the Pats were going to lose. It's supposed to pick up again and snow till tomorrow sometime but I'm not sure how much. Only 6 more months till summer. I think you're plow guy's going to be busy this year.


Peleton sounds like a tribe defeated by the Romans.

It's getting worse for Hunter Biden..

He just blew off his Court Hearing Over Child Support and his Lawyer just quit on him...

#Biden2020 #Trump2020




hanks for the birthday wishes.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Hmm, I revise my guess to 0.
This is Horowitz, after all. A Dem. And basically pro-Swamp.

The other one (Durham? Dunham?) will include charges but this one won't



I would suspect that future donations from those associated with ICE, based in Atlanta. (And that would be the Intercontinental Exchange, as in commodities exchange. Big Volume!)::



Happy birthday to you , clarice.

Going out for dinner??

rocco @ 4:50

You beat me to it. My guess is the same as yours.

1 indictment, of somebody who's not actually important at all.


When does Nancy get back?

JUST IN: Federal judge denies the Justice Department's stay motion in McGahn lawsuit.

"[C]ompliance with a valid subpoena that a committee of Congress issues pursuant to Article I investigative powers is itself a legal duty, and therefore not an injury at all."


James D.

Barr only has to keepupthe integrity of the FBI and DOJ .

What integrity?

The integrity of not recording witness interviews, forbidding witnesses themselves from recording them, writing up the reports weeks afterwards, and then using those reports to prosecute the witnesses for perjury?

The integrity of sending a SWAT team with snipers and helicopters to serve a warrant for a nonviolent crime against a 65 year old guy whose wife is deaf, with CNN reporters tipped off to film the whole thing?

That kind of integrity?


s/b Thanks.Dinner? I should be somewhere over the Rockies by then in Hi timewith no obvious decent choices. And then after several more time zone changes it's dinner time in DC and I hope the Costco rotisserie chicken I ordered this a.m. from Hi will be waiting for me.


There is no integrity left.
I just wish there was a way for them to sue the FBI and the CIA for damages and harassment and false charges.


Donald J. Trump
Just landed in the United Kingdom, heading to London for NATO meetings tomorrow. Prior to landing I read the Republicans Report on the Impeachment Hoax. Great job! Radical Left has NO CASE. Read the Transcripts. Shouldn’t even be allowed. Can we go to Supreme Court to stop?


DOJ is hopeless until all Obama vermin is removed.


Eric Bolling has been airing a weekly show for 30 weeks on Sinclair?

I think if a President is falsely accused, he should be able to appeal it to the Supreme Court for a ruling on whether high crimes or misdemeanors have been committed.
If not, case dismissed.



Not all of the DoJ hangers-on are self-identifying, takes a bit tof time to smoke ‘em out.

Robin, eff 'em all

This is a pretty interesting thread....


Ignore the Lisa Page moan. It’s a distraction. What you need to know: coup plotters are not allowed to communicate with each other because they are under criminal investigation. So they use the media to send each other messages. There has been speculation that Lisa flipped ...

...so Lisa is using the media, including Comey’s best pal Wittes, to send a message to her co-conspirators: she has not flipped, is sticking to the agreed story. “Everything was legally predicated.” Coup plotters will continue looking for who among them provided the evidence...

...that turned the Barr/Durham inquiry into the origins of Spygate into the criminal investigation.

Tom R

Jim @ 5:31

That's why I used the term "criminal referral". Horowitz is just the IG he was never going to indict anyone. Horowitz will send the criminal referral to AG Barr who will either send it to Durham or make the decision to not seek an indictment.

Robin, eff 'em all

Also the comments on this one are fun:


Everyone must hear about this. Every outlet in the world should publicize how the murderous Iranian regime is mowing down protesters.


Robin, eff 'em all

Comment at Althouse:

Over at Power Line my friend Scott Johnson has a post on the same topic. He cites a text message between the famous lovers about "ONCONUS lures." That's spook speak for people outside the continental US used by the CIA as traps for American citizens. In this case that would be Misfud and that other guy who's name escapes me now.
Halper is the other guy.

"The term OCONUS lures, shorthand for spies “Outside the Continental United States,” was featured in a Dec. 28, 2015 text from FBI agent Peter Strzok, the lead FBI agent on the Trump investigation, to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, asking, “You get all our oconus lures approved?”

The FBI and CIA were using spies to get at the Trump campaign. You got a problem with that?

Captain Hate

Power is getting deservedly brutalized. When Gaylord didn't do a fucking thing to make the gunned down Neda the face of the Iranian resistance, Power and her ilk had plenty of opportunities to make their feelings felt; assuming she's being honest now.


ot all of the DoJ hangers-on are self-identifying, takes a bit tof time to smoke ‘em out.

It is not safe to assume there is a baby stewing in that decades old bath water. Toss it all.


Donald J. Trump
Mini Mike Bloomberg has instructed his third rate news organization not to investigate him or any Democrat, but to go after President Trump, only. The Failing New York Times thinks that is O.K., because their hatred & bias is so great they can’t even see straight. It’s not O.K.!


Kevin McCarthy
House Democrats have been trying to undo the results of President @realDonaldTrump
’s historic election since before he was sworn in. After countless hours of wasted time, Chairman Schiff has only succeeded in exposing this sham for what it is → a political hit job.

Jack is Back (Again)!

Watch Trump at NATO. It will be memorable. The UK may get embarrassed over the latest terror attack.

Little birdy told me.




Why is Nancy Pelosi lying to the people at the Climate Change forum in Madrid?
She is telling them we are still in it.
As of next November we will officially be out of the Paris Agreement.
We are in the process right now of removing ourselves from this feckless mistake of Obama’s.


So Nancy won’t be in town while Schiff beaches Nadler in ways that make Chris Christie in a speedo a better option? Wonder why?


I wonder if State can take Nancy's passport - or bar her from re-entering the country!

Jack is Back (Again)!


She is no. 3 in succession. Never going to happen.


Pin--- then there's PELONton for fat bald guys.

Well, I should have known that. I am just so sick of her that I was willing to use desperate measures,


Nancy Pelosi is lookin rather haggard. Christmas in HELL anyone? Trumpenfreude in spades, Witch, with a capital B

Jack is Back (Again)!

Okay, before I go to bed, who has put thier tree up already?


What is a rebel? A man who says no. - Albert Camus



I’ve been told plaid is very slimming.


Well, my tree is up, however, the boys and Mrs -peter put it up since my back was locked up after running the five mile turkey trot.


Biden looks awful at his small meetings.
He looks haggard and clueless.
I think he is worried about his son and now he has a new grandchild .
Plus Hunter is a no show at a court hearing.
His family is falling apart.


Imagine self righteousness being the single most sought after trait for working at the FBI.



Money laundering.

Also a former partner of Neil Bush.


Has Neil Bush been convicted of anything yet?


Tree? First I must obtain fresh trains.

Another Bob

“Has Neil Bush been convicted of anything yet?”

What does that have to do with anything?

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Mine is up. The rest of the decorations at least have made it downstairs.

HB Clarice!


People keep referencing Neil Bush when someone else is indicted or convicted.
Just wondering if he has also been accused of wrongdoing or is it just guilt by association?



Another Bob

“His family is falling apart.”

His family has always been thus.


who has put their tree up already?

Tree — a Balsam Hill Fraser Fir fake — is up. We found we are allergic to real Fraser Firs if they stay in the house past New Years Day. We keep the tree up until Epiphany, Jan 6th, the 12th day of Christmas.

No decorations yet. Just the star. "Greenery" is up on the mantle and over the door. The windows on the first floor have electric candles lit.

Outside we have lit garland over the door, a lit tree on the porch, and a lit wreath on the wall. Looks nice with 10" of snow on the ground.

The little wax carolers Mrs. sbw’s mom liked are on the raised island. We'll put up the ceramic fired nativity scene later.


A press star to charge $10.00 for the inconvenience would work better.

Our decor is all in the house but it will go up tomorrow.


So not pass go:



Try again:



Thats spelled devout:



Wash Post says Barr disputes IG report that The FBI was justified in opening an investigation into the Trump campaign? Unbelievable to concede that investigation was ok by the IG. Could be fake news.


Whose byline d, if its barrett, nakashima or ignatius we know the drill.


Those words you are using:



Ah devlin barrett enough said.


Bezos is still butthurt over losing the Pentagon cloud contract to Microsoft.


Isnt the rizzotto great?



“Horowitz will send the criminal referral to AG Barr who will either send it to Durham or make the decision to not seek an indictment.”

Can Barr or Durham indict without a criminal referral from the IG?

matt - deplore me if you must

The media are out and out liars at this point, the WaPo at the head of the pack. They can't hide their hatred and bias anymore, so I would take anything they write/broadcast as hearsay.

"Facts? We don't need no steenking facts" - Dean Baquet


The question that occurs to me is who else was khan in contact with:



Funny, ole Dean didn’t care when Obama and Hilligula did that to Fox News.


Jimmyk, prosecutors indicting people without an IG (that reports to Congress to be technical) is the normal course of affairs. Horowitz is pure hype by design.


My only indirect experience with neil is he showed his older brothers the magic been mind arson that had been the basis for state education templates.

Since 2017, the number of NATO allies fulfilling their spending commitment has doubled.



We will get our tree on Wednesday. Need a Fraser with its strong branches to support the crystal ornaments we hang.

Had an unusual thing happen this past weekend. My garage door decided to self destruct. Left cable snapped, right side continued to move, panels twisted, right track bent and half the panels popped the tracks and jammed at an angle. Tarped the door but didn’t like leaving the garage basically open all weekend with only the inner door deadbolt for security. Service guy came today and took the panels apart, restacked and screwed into the door frame to keep out the weather. Total replacement ordered. Bummer.



Dems Have No Evidence On President Trump, No Crimes Committed

The Trade Wars begun they have.


Well mission accomplished no?



Re lebanon in the 70s, there was this hanger on who glommed with a memoir, like halper wilbur crane eveland, nephew of some official, he referenced tamraz the banker which was paying for clinton coffee, which the soectator noted how he had gotten an inn? He had uncovered incriminating documents on lebanese politicos


Is that too self referential,


Oh this chatacter:



Most of what I know of Lebanon comes second hand from a college buddy that did Marine OVS and was deployed there. He rotated out before the bombing... but his description of ROEs back then were scary stupid.




Well tom friedman got the story wrong, quelle surprise, most except admiral lyons realized hezbollah was an iranian paid proxy.


After they pullex out of lebanon, the iranians had the country to themselves, notably this is what we are not doing in syria.
