DEVELOPING: A senior intel official tells @CBSNews the GRU/Taliban bounty allegations were not contained in the President's Daily Brief (PDB) which is the highly classified, daily summary of national security issues delivered to the President, key cabinet secretaries + advisers..

The official confirmed the NSC has been doing “due diligence,” and going back through their files since the story broke Friday, and they have not found the “intelligence assessment” described in media reporting. The official said the review is ongoing, but given current...

talks with the Taliban, intel about a GRU operation involving the Taliban, targeting US forces would have risen to the level of inclusion in the PDB.

Remember: the GRU is the very same Russian military intel unit that interfered in the 2016 election.

@ChuckRossDC
Remember: Sciutto reported that Kim Jong-un was near death and that a lot of the Steele dossier had been corroborated.

--Although there seems to be a widespread consensus that this happened and the intel reports were discussed within the White House--

Not sure whether to employ an OMG or a LOL. How about OMGLOL?
How many other widespread consensuses have turned out to be utter horseshit in the last 3+ years? Has a single one NOT turned out to be utter horseshit?

The only people who deny the consensus are the ones in a position to know and who go on the record with their names.
The people who form the consensus are without doubt the exact same anonymous ones and political hacks and crooks who have formed every horse shit one before.

Sweet Jesus; We're beyond susceptibility to being fooled and far into desire to be fooled at this point.

So a horseshit, LEAK, is given credence, why???
So Mr Maguire, you AMPLIFY it, why???
Is there any allegation, or any factual, or even any speculation, that a SINGLE U.S. MILITARY SERVICE PERSON, was killed in Afghanistan, the paid ANYONE A BOUNTY ANYWHERE???
Ok Mr Maguire, my GRACIOUS HOST. What is your position and knowledge of Quesom Soleimani and IRAN'S actions vis vis IED's and ambushes of AMERICAN TROOPS in IRAQ????

Not a big deal, I’m probs doing something stupid, but I cannot copy it, and I sure as hell am not typing it again. Not even important.

For ccgirl, don’t give up!

“Just posting another episode in “As the World Loses it.” Really enjoyed my two days at the beach, but I almost killed a few people before 10:30am. And I am just ranting here, but day to day life is getting difficult. The nuts in this town have closed off a third of the parking spots in the beach lots - not every other space, but a bunch on the left and a bunch on the right. So at 10:15 we were first in the waiting line for a space. For other reasons the town has been cracking down on having a waiting line at this particular beach (Pretty much agreed on that the jerks on the island past the lot don’t like the line of cars and are claiming it’s a safety issue in case an ambulance needs to get through) Anyway, young girl in a mask approaches us and says we can’t wait. I grumble that we know that but if we are next what’s a few minutes. Anyway she gets on her phone. So husband unloads our stuff and I drive home and bike back to beach. On the way some idiot walking his dog while in a mask steps into the street to avoid a woman on the sidewalk. I’m at least 30 ft away, and there’s a car in the other lane, and he starts pointing and yelling for me to get in the other lane. I was pretty stewed for the first hour. Plus had to talk to couple of lefty friends who arrived yesterday (after quarantining at home In VA for two weeks.)

Later I was speaking with a pretty liberal acquaintance and she said she was behind us. A cop showed up and made all leave. She came back and waited in the turn around area, and told drivers behind her she was waiting for the cop to leave. Her words, “I am 61 years old and I am evading the police.”

Just another day in paradise! But if I had any bad germs in my system I baked in the sun all day. I sucked up enough vitamin d to last for a long time. Skin cancer be damned at this point!

Antifa had long considered the Portland police as their friend since there was no act of violence they could not commit without the police standing down and allowing them to do as they wanted with impunity.

But, as the police swooped in to save the police precinct, they were grabbing Antifa members, throwing them around like rag dolls and tossing them down on the pavement on their way to protect the station house.

Wow, thanks for all the attention! I guess I will stay on for a bit.

We were discussing the fireworks in NYC and how common they are here around the 4th! But there are more, and I get that Miss M is upset that the dogs hate it. My dog doesn’t care.

But I get the feeling the fireworks in NYC are not a patriotic display. I haven’t followed it closely, but it seems it more of a nuisance display.

Fireworks have started again. We could not get the dogs to go out in the yard to potty - they huddled by the patio door on the porch.

I even went out in thr yard and they still wouldn't come out.

Dave(in MA), I am so mad at the NFL. My daughter saw the Cam Newton thing, and told my husband. Son did not know either. Then they all chatted and argued calmly about it. In my always very calm manner I informed them I would not be watching any football. My daughter said okay, but maybe you can watch the one where the Bar Stool guy hangs with Goodell in his living room- well maybe just to watch the torture happen. Good one on her part!

Buckeye, we had a bathroom renovation last year, and thought we would get all sorts of other overdue projects and improvements done as well. Well, the dog hated the contractor, and basically I had to shut him in a room if I was working, and if home babysit him. So no major home improvement until this crazy beast leaves us. He seems to get sick every summer, and comes back stronger than ever. So we will just improve the yard for now. He’s been out of sorts, so we are giving him anxiety meds until we can get to the vet. The meds are left over from the bath reno.

JimSVC, always happy to hear Nike is hurting. I skimmed that article, and the CEO sounds like he’s spooing (old family slang) a bunch of double speak. All these corporations and such that use all this jargon than no normal person can understand is infuriating.

I loathe jargon, and certain acronyms. In areas such as public schools there are all these professional terms. When my kids were young I was on this insidious group of parents, teachers, the principal, and town members. I forget what it was called. Anyway, the principal used all these “terms” and I took her on. In the end I “won.” They put a glossary in the back of the handbook - just in case a parent cared to look up what any of their bs terms meant. Small victories.

It was not the PTA. It was the “School Council.” But I did the PTO thing here. Both were a way to really find out what was going on, and to get your kid into the better classes. I did the best I could to be aware and involved to keep my three in the best situation. I did not work, and we did live leanly. But they all graduated in the top 5 of their classes. Yeah, I guess I am bragging. We also had family dinner as much as possible. I am hopeful that this “mess” will bring a lot of parents back home and involved with their kids, and their schooling and future. IMO too many parents have left their kids on their own way too often.
