THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED

I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

      At what point do we say 'failed state'?
      By Silvio Canto, Jr.

      Venezuela is a story that gets worse every day. Polio is the latest example:

      A case of polio has been reported in Venezuela for the first time in nearly 30 years, according to the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO).


      An unnamed child, with no history of vaccinations, from the poverty-ridden Delta Amacuro state has been diagnosed with the condition.

      According to Dr Jose Felix Oletta, a former Minister of Health in the South American nation, the last case of polio in Venezuela was reported in 1989.

      This is sad and makes me angry.

      Why is this happening? The answer is that Chávez's Venezuela is failing across the board.

      Yesterday, I spoke with a Venezuelan friend in Miami who explained it this way: chronic medicine shortages and hyperinflation in Venezuela mean that getting medicine is impossible. He confirmed that pharmacies do not have medicine on their shelves.

      In other words, a nation of 30 million people has failed so miserably that people cannot buy the most basic medical supplies.

      As expected, the Maduro regime is blaming the U.S. What else do you do when you are a leftist dictator? My sense is that Trump-bashing is not working because things are so bad that blaming outsiders goes in one ear and out the other.

      Last, but not least, this latest outbreak of polio cannot be good news for Colombia or Brazil, a couple of countries getting a daily dosage of refugees escaping the Maduro regime.

      Hello, socialism!

  18. Rosenstein’s Threats Left Congressional Staff Members “Physically Shaking in My Office” In Fear For Their Families

    1. Rod Rosenstein’s Subpoena Threat: He’s Conflicted, and He’s Acting Like It

      The House Intelligence Committee is investigating whether the government has used the Justice Department’s awesome investigative authorities as a weapon against political adversaries. We learned yesterday that, in response to this very investigation, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein . . . threatened to use the Justice Department’s awesome investigative authorities as a weapon against political adversaries.

      That Rosenstein threatened to subpoena the committee’s records does not seem to be in serious dispute. There are differing accounts about why. House investigators say that Rosenstein was trying to bully his way out of compliance with oversight demands; the Justice Department offers the lawyerly counter that Rosenstein was merely foreshadowing his litigating position if the House were to try to hold him in contempt for obstructing its investigations. Either way, the best explanation for the outburst is that Rosenstein is beset by profound conflicts of interest, and he’s acting like it.

      The first thing to bear in mind about the news reported Tuesday by Fox News’s Catherine Herridge is that the dispute in question — which is just one of many during a year of Justice Department stonewalling — happened five months ago, on January 10...

      Rosenstein’s Threats Left Congressional Staff Members “Physically Shaking in My Office” In Fear For Their Families

      Lordy Doug, aren't you the least bit embarrassed putting something like that up?

      Congress has been threatening Rosenstein with subpoenas and contempt of Congress charges for months, and now, because he tells them they better hang on to all their memos and other communications in case he has to subpoena them for his defense they start shitting bricks. Hilarious.

      Why would these guys worry about hanging onto their documents anyway? I assume there are Congressional rules that demand that anyway. Physically shaking? Worried for their families? Why?

      Now, I can understand it with slime balls like Nunes and Nelson who probably have a lot to hide. Or, Trump where the latest is that his staff is getting tired of his habit of reading a document and then ripping it up which is against government rules and which forces them to put the pieces together again with Scotch tape. But the entire GOP staff of the Congressional Judicial and Intelligence Committees. Now, there's a conspiracy for you.

    The Key to Trump's Success in North Korea
    By Karin McQuillan

    Who would have thought a real estate developer from New York City, famous for plastering his name in big letters on his buildings, would be a champion in foreign policy? Big surprise: It turns out that being confident, tough, and aggressive works well for a president dealing with dangerous pipsqueaks like ISIS and North Korea.

    Trump isn't intimidated by anybody. Not by business rivals, not by critics, not by rogue FBI agents, not by foreign leaders. Certainly not by failed experts who urge meekness, caution, and limited goals.


    Our president is devoted to one thing: winning for America. He does listen to our military and work with its members to achieve the possible. He does understand how power works. Korea could thumb its nose at us because it was protected by China. So, first, Trump removed that protection by going after China. The astute Sundance at Conservative Treehouse has been pointing out for months that the trade pressure on China was the prerequisite to movement on Korea. Our expert diplomats and analysts still don't talk about this big picture. Trump is obviously a strategic thinker, as you have to be in the business world, as in the military.

    It's not all that complicated. Kim came to the table because Trump forced him to....

      Forced him?

      Geez, Kim would have auctioned off his left nut to get a meeting with 'any' US president. Now, he's had it. Pictures all over the world of Kim and Trump walking hand in hand, others with Kim's hand on Trump's back, laughing, smiling, Trump calling the guy funny, intelligent. The only thing Trump hasn't given him (as far as we know) is a bj. In return, Kim gives Trump a piece of paper saying he is willing to look for ways to denuclearize (a word that's definition still hasn't been agreed upon by the two parties) the entire Korean Peninsula, not just North Korea but the entire peninsula.

      I give Trump full credit for actually talking to Kim. It's much better than what they were doing 6 months ago. However, based on what has occurred so far, it's far too early to be running victory laps.

  22. Fox Should Fire Kimberly Guilfoyle For Dating Trump Jr

    Now that Kimberly Guilfoyle is reportedly having sleepovers with Donald Trump Jr., the Fredo Corleone of the Trump boys, while she’s reporting on him, his father, his father’s sex scandals, and the Mueller investigation, what Fox News — that fair and balanced network — should do is bust her down to courtroom reporter. Or fire her.

    That’s what the sex-scandal-plagued news network must do to maintain even the slightest shred of journalistic integrity. She can’t report on the most powerful family in the country while dating one of them.

    And what Fredo’s billionaire father, President Donald Sr., should do is to reimburse the American taxpayers for the two possible Secret Service agents parked outside during Junior’s trysts. Didn’t he give up his security detail voluntarily months ago?

  30. First human case of plague in Idaho since 1992 confirmed in Elmore County child

    A child in Elmore County was confirmed to be infected with the plague this week, according to the Central District Health Department, marking the first human diagnosis in Idaho since 1992.

    The child is recovering after receiving antibiotics.

    Cases of plague in Idaho were diagnosed in squirrels as recently as 2016, though none have been found in southern Ada County or Elmore County this year. It is unknown whether the child was exposed to the disease in Idaho or during a recent trip to Oregon.

    Plague has been found historically in wildlife in both states. Since 1990, there have been two cases of plague in humans in Idaho and eight in Oregon....

    It pointed out major incompetence (at a minimum) during that key month before the election after the Weiner emails was discovered. It strongly criticized the bias of Strzok and I wouldn't be surprised if he is one of the people Sessions was talking about when he mentioned that heads might roll. The comments on Comey were not complimentary but nothing new as both sides have been saying the same thing for different reasons for a couple years.

  41. STUDY: IQ Scores On Decline For Decades....DRUDGE

    (CNN) — IQ scores have been steadily falling for the past few decades, and environmental factors are to blame, a new study says.

    The research suggests that genes aren’t what’s driving the decline in IQ scores, according to the study, published Monday.

    Norwegian researchers analyzed the IQ scores of Norwegian men born between 1962 and 1991 and found that scores increased by almost 3 percentage points each decade for those born between 1962 to 1975 — but then saw a steady decline among those born after 1975.

    ALSO: Russian Workers Are Learning How To Smile Before World Cup Begins

    Similar studies in Denmark, Britain, France, the Netherlands, Finland and Estonia have demonstrated a similar downward trend in IQ scores, said Ole Rogeberg, a senior research fellow at the Ragnar Frisch Center for Economic Research in Norway and co-author of the new study.

    “The causes in IQ increases over time and now the decline is due to environmental factors,” said Rogeburg, who believes the change is not due to genetics.

    “It’s not that dumb people are having more kids than smart people, to put it crudely. It’s something to do with the environment, because we’re seeing the same differences within families,” he said.

    These environmental factors could include changes in the education system and media environment, nutrition, reading less and being online more, Rogeberg said....

    ‘VIVA LE RESISTANCE’: MUELLER TEAM ATTORNEY SENT ANTI-TRUMP TEXTS
    6:52 PM 06/14/2018
    Chuck Ross | Reporter

    An FBI attorney who worked on the special counsel’s Russia investigation until earlier this year sent anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, including one exclaiming: “Viva le Resistance.”

    The attorney’s comments are revealed in a Justice Department inspector general’s report released on Thursday.

    The lawyer is not identified, but he worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was the FBI’s lead attorney on the investigation into Russian election interference. He was assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation soon after it began in May 2017 and left in late February of this year after some of his private messages were shared with the special counsel.

    The inspector general’s report focuses on instant messages that the attorney exchanged with a colleague about the Clinton and Russia probes. (RELATED: ‘Willingness’ To Impact The Election: IG’s Clinton Report Is Loaded With Bombshells)


    “I am numb,” the attorney wrote on Nov. 9, 2016, the day after President Trump’s election.

    “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently,” the lawyer continued, apparently referring to the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe....

    Canadians boycott US products, cancel vacations to America

    Blame America.

    Canadians have taken to practicing pocketbook diplomacy in defense of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is caught in a trade war of words with President Trump, by boycotting American goods and canceling vacations to the United States, according to a report.

    Shoppers are shunning Kentucky bourbon, California wine and Florida oranges, and avoiding American companies like Starbucks, Walmart and McDonald’s, Canadian network CTV News reported on Wednesday.

    On Twitter, hashtags like #BuyCanadian, #BoycottUSProducts and #BoycottUSA are spreading as outrage over Trump’s trade tariffs grows.

    An Ottawa man posted a “Trump-free grocery cart” full of products from Canada or from “countries with strong leadership.”

    Vacationers said they would be staying up north this summer instead of booking trips to the US.

    “F​–k​ you Trump. We just booked a $3,000 vacation to beautiful British Columbia. Happy anniversary to us. #Canadastrong #BuyCanadian #F***Tariffs,” tweeted ​Supreme Leader Lyna.

    And one Twitter user called on “Patriotic Americans” to schedule vacations in Canada and increase their purchases of Canadian goods.

    Trudeau acknowledged the support of individual Canadians during an event at Parliament earlier this week.

    “There’s a bit of a patriotic boost going on these past few days,” he said....

    2. An unidentified FBI employee described Trump voters as "uneducated" and "lazy POS" the day after the 2016 presidential election, according to the Justice Department watchdog's bombshell report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

      The employee was responding to instant messages from "FBI Attorney 2," whom DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz indicated was one of five FBI employees who had been referred for investigation and possible disciplinary action over politically charged messages.

      Horowitz said Attorney 2 had been assigned to the Clinton investigation "early in 2016." Approximately one year later, the report said Attorney 2 was made the "primary FBI attorney" assigned to the Russia investigation.

      IG REFERS FIVE FBI EMPLOYEES FOR INVESTIGATION, AS MORE ANTI-TRUMP MESSAGES REVEALED

      On the morning of Nov. 9, 2016, Attorney 2 messaged the employee: "I am so stressed about what I could have done differently."

      The employee answered: "Don't stress. None of that mattered," an apparent reference to the FBI's investigation of Clinton. When the attorney said: "I don’t know. We broke the momentum," the employee answered: "That is not so."

      "All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out," the employee wrote. "Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn't watch the debates, aren't fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm."

      Initially, it was easy to assume his base was simply striking out at the system that left them behind. That they figured Trump couldn't possibly be as bad as what had existed for so long. Easy to excuse them for voting for Trump out of spite.

      Now, after two years of the guy's lies, the corruption, the sticking it to them on taxes, the deficit, health care, health and safety, the environment, flat wage growth, all to appease his real constituency the billionaires like himself what else can you call them? They are either useful idiots or the real kind of idiots.

    You meatballs are something else.

    You rightly call out the abuses of those FBI agents; however, I don't recall you calling out those on your team, that Senate staffer recently charged with leaking to the press, the countless documents leaked from the GOP majority on the committees, the midnight runs by Nunes to the White House to pick up classified info and then leak it to the press, the constant leaks from the White House itself. The FBI agents would be nutz to try and compete with Trump when it comes to leaking.

    Then there are the fake news stories about Congressional staffers quaking in their boots and fearing for their families because Rosenstein 'threatened' them by reminding them they need to hang on to their records and emails. I still can't believe you actually put that story up Doug. What's the matter with you?

    Anyway, as Pirro is wont to say, put on your big boy pants guys and realize nothing about the IG report impacts on the Mueller investigation.

    And trying to discredit the Mueller investigation is the only reason we have seen all the phony conspiracy theories you bumpkins have been reposting here from your Dear Leader and his butt boys. Keep reporting the big lie long enough and you will get the weak minded to believe it. We have seen it play out with Trump's improved poll numbers. Which gets back to my point above that there is little difference between useful idiots and just your common type of idiot.

      “We have profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel that we have uncovered during our review,” the report said.

      In addition, we identified instances where FBI employees improperly received benefits from reporters, including tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events.

      More confused thinking from the disgruntled haole.

      As I stated above, you have every right to condemn these guys. They broke the law. They leaked information and regardless of whether it was classified or not if it wasn't against the law it was at least against the rules. The ones who took money or favors also broke the laws and the rules. They should at least be fired and possible prosecuted depending on the circumstances. Their worst crime was being felony stupid. I assume these guys had a career in front of them and now that's shot all for a few baubles. Strzok should have been let go as soon as the his emails surfaced if for nothing else than the time he spent using FBI time and equipment to carry on his biased conversations with page.

      I've seen it happen on more than one occasion while I was working. A low level buyer making $70k-$80k (good money back then) with the best benefits package in the country, paid schooling, healthcare, dental, vision, weeks of paid vacation and other benefits again with a potential successful career in front of him gives it all up for a new tv or some other nominal gift. Stupid. Felony stupid.

      In the IG report, they come up with five guys they identified for various infractions. That's out of the 35,000 who work for the FBI and the 110,000+ that work at DOJ and you morons say it proves a deep state conspiracy.

      Trump keeps you guys running around in circles so that you don't have time to think. He tosses out conspiracy theories like a man teases a kitten by having it running around chasing a pen light. Deep State, Spygate, list of questions Mueller wants to ask, all lies, all conspiracy theories, but just the thing to rile up his base. It's morally corrupt but political genius. Trump knows his base.

      Anyone with an ounce of sense can see what he's doing. Unfortunately, among the Trumpkins that commodity is extremely rare.

      Doug, you live in a bifurcated world. Everything is political, everything zero-sum, it's one side or the other with you. You assume if someone doesn't support your politics it means automatically that he must support the opposite sides politics. The idea of thinking independently eludes you which is understandable given you haven't done any of it in so long.

      However, believe it or not, there are people who can look at D.C. and say 'What a shithole. They are all dicks.' It's easy. The examples are legion (or for Jack's benefit many).

      With you, it's all politics. With me it's personal. I see nothing the least bit appealing in the Dems. However, I dislike Trump immensely. I dislike the way he carries himself. I dislike his policies. I dislike his lies. Most of all I dislike the idea that he has such contempt for the American public that he continues to insult their intelligence. It's all so obvious.

    Record low unemployment, booming businesses, stock market rise, ISIS vaporized, etc etc etc.....none of these things have a thing to do with The Donald's rising poll numbers


    Record unemployment,

    First, it’s not a record low. Second, it merely continues a trend that has existed since 2010. Starting in 2010 and continuing through 2016, the rate dropped from about 10% to 4.8%, the number it was at when Trump took over in January, 2017. Under Trump, it has dropped another 1% to 3.8%.

    But you forget to mention other trends that continue, low labor participation rate, flat wage growth, average work week around 33 hours per week, no shortage of burger flippers. You want a record? Record number of people living in their parents basements.

    Booming business,

    Again, merely extending a trend that was already there.

    stock market rise,

    The stock market was booming before Trump took over. Add to that the $ trillions Trump gifted to these corporations with the tax bill and deregulation, money they are now spending for stock buy backs and what do you expect? The very people he promised to reign in are the ones he opened the vaults for. You and me? Trinkets for the natives and health problems down the road.

    I complain about different policies with every president but I rarely give them credit for individually improving or harming the economy. Like climate change, the economy is rarely moved by the actions of one man.

    ISIS vaporized

    Thank you, Vlad Putin, Mr. Assad, the Kurds, the Iranian backed militias, and oh yea, Mr. Trump for not getting in their way.

    etc etc etc.....

    Right, like the DOJ’s recent ruling reflecting Trump administration policy that does away with guarantees on coverage for pre-existing conditions. Sweet. Thanks a lot.

    none of these things have a thing to do with The Donald's rising poll numbers.

    Which brings me back to my point about plain idiots and useful idiots. Seeing what he is doing to ordinary Americans in terms of healthcare, environmental issues, doing away with clean water and air protections, EPA, CDC, and FDA rule changes that will make the US a more dangerous place for people like you and me, how can anyone back this guy?

    Watching the giveaways to the rich and the corporations, the reversing of rules put in place to prevent the same corrupt banking policies that gave us 2008, the corrupt officials he has appointed, Pruitt, Zinke, Carson, et al. Are you blind to this or is it that you just don't care?

    And that doesn't even touch on the fact that the man is a blustering bully, a buffoon, an embarrassment . Obviously, I could go on.

    With FBI's boiling hate for voters exposed, America dodged a bullet by electing Trump

    By Monica Showalter

    One of the biggest takeaways from the Department of Justice's 500-page inspector general report is how deep the contempt for voters is among the Federal Bureau of Investigation's leadership elite.

    The text messages are incredible. According to the gleanings of J. Christian Adams over at Pajamas Media:


    One FBI agent on the Hillary investigation wrote in an FBI text:

    Trump's supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS.

    "POS" is the agent's acronym for "Pieces Of S‑‑‑."

    There's also this from Adams:

    In another FBI communication, Strzok says he visited a rural Virginia Walmart – and the customers had a political odor:

    Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support....

    Strzok does not say he could see Trump support, or hear it discussed. Rather, he smelled it among the customers.

    And this:

    Other FBI agents on the Hillary investigation ridiculed the "average American public." Others referred to Donald Trump as "Donald Drumpf" on FBI instant messages repeatedly.

    Even after the election, FBI agents complained about being on duty on Inauguration Day. "F‑‑‑ Trump," wrote one agent on the Hillary investigation in an FBI communication.

    It's so bad that the I.G. report said these remarks, just oozing with contempt for the American public, led to an atmosphere that "has brought discredit to themselves, sowed doubt about the FBI's handling of the Midyear investigation, and impacted the reputation of the FBI."

    No kidding.

    What's vividly left unsaid is that this scheming and contempt would never have been discovered, let alone investigated, had the winner of the 2016 election been Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump.

    Everyone at the bureau's headquarters was so invested in Hillary winning and so sure it would happen that all of them fell into corrupt partisan politics, in part because no one was checking them and because they believed that it would all be tolerated with Hillary on the way to the presidency anyway. They were taking their cue from the leadership, even as it was an anticipated leadership. A fish rots from the head down.

    What would that mean for America's Trump voters? Probably more criminalization of dissent, such as what happened under the Obama administration with the dissident-targeting of the Internal Revenue Service. IRS tax-exempt chief Lois Lerner engaged in a passive-aggressive effort to halt the Tea Party by denying its organizations authorization to operate as non-profits. Her acts were often credited with swinging the 2012 election to President Obama instead of Mitt Romney. The little Tea Party groups that were denied permits to organize and operate, which is their First Amendment right, were the victim of suppression by de facto Chavista-style government thugs, and the latter got away with it under Democratic rule.

    If the IRS could get away with that, imagine what the FBI could get away with had Hillary Clinton been elected. Can you say "police state"?

    The other creepy thing about it is that had Trump never been elected, none of these facts would even have become known....

  75. SOCIETY

    Why Doing Nothing Is One of the Most Important Things You Can Do

    Muriel de Seze—Getty Images
    By BRIAN O’CONNOR 8:00 AM EDT
    IDEAS

    O’Connor is a professor of philosophy at University College Dublin and the author of Idleness: A Philosophical Essay.

    From the age of Enlightenment onward, philosophers, political leaders and moral authorities of many kinds have tried to convince us that work is one of the most important opportunities for freedom. Through work, we can become a somebody, relish the esteem we gain, structure our lives and, while we are at it, contribute nobly to the common good. This is a strange brew of ideas, but one that has seeped deeper into our psyche than we may realize.

    We develop a craving for recognition that is rarely satisfied. We need to be seen and admired, pushed along by a narcissism that doesn’t really believe in itself, but doesn’t know how to stop. We depend on the approval of strangers with needs of their own. Self-satisfaction proves elusive. If we are lucky enough to accomplish one thing, another seemingly compelling challenge — or even just an after-hours email — steps in to give us a new worry.


    The ever-tightening connection between our work and our personal identity constricts even more. We come to believe that being idle at all is, somehow, the antithesis of freedom. But we would do well to think about idleness more, and rather differently from how we do.

    Leisure today is, for many people, a glimpse at what it would be like to do nothing for more than a few hours. It is — or at least it used to be — downtime, lazing away, forgetting the bothers of the workplace. We use our allowance of paid vacation to recharge the batteries, address some level of emotional well-being… and gear up for a return to work. Leisure, in this way, is incorporated into the world of work. It is not a subversion of it.

    And this is how many want it to be. Doing nothing at all, the thought goes, is good up to a point. But over-doing nothing is boring. In that light, modern work practices look just right. They respect, one might naively think, our natural moderate desire for idleness — paid vacation time — and the deeper need to keep ourselves busy.

    1. It was not always this way. In 1963, the German writer Heinrich Böll published a fictional story of a visitor to a small fishing village somewhere in the West of Europe. His visitor carries with him the full conviction of the work ethic. Spotting an apparently lazy local fisherman resting in his boat, the visitor asks impatiently why the man doesn’t spend more time fishing, catching more, eventually building a lucrative multi-vessel business. With that effort, he could hope to work his way towards time away from work. It falls to the simple but not so naive fisherman to point out the irony of that recommendation. With no pressure to make something of himself, the fisherman is free — enviably so. He has what many seek: his own idle time. He has it by default. His circumstances may have been remarkably fortunate, yet Böll’s story captures a recognizable time when work was considered a necessary evil, second in value to other goods like friendship, rest and community.

      It may be unrealistic to believe we could return to a world like that. And there are dangers of wishful thinking in believing such a world was ever successful in meeting the fundamental range of human needs — our emotional, material and intellectual needs. Our unqualified belief in progress especially affords it little credibility. There is nothing commendable about leaving all work to others, or in pretending that no level of work is essential to survival. Economic precariousness is not just dangerous to one’s health but also psychologically draining. (It is telling that a common perception of people out of work or down on their luck — that they are lazy — is infected with the supposed moral virtue of busyness.) In society today, we cannot forget these facts — and realize that it will be difficult to decouple ourselves from our deep socialization as useful workers.

      Great philosophers have argued that we have nothing to learn from ways of life that exists outside the busy world of western civilization. But if we have some hunch that the world we have today demands too much effort in return for too little happiness, we could do worse than to see what we can learn from those other forms of living. The potential in idleness for greater freedom seems worth the exploration. Or at least an attempt to think about what prevents us from truly doing nothing right now.

  76. Who will stop those who couldn't stop Trump?

    What’s the take-away from the Inspector-General’s Report about Comey and the FBI? The left is going to spin it as a vindication of their narrative. The New York Times even let Comey write an op-ed claiming the report backs him. That’s hogwash, and it looks as though he wrote the op-ed before he read the report, which called him insubordinate and guilty of serious errors of judgment. What’s clear is that his reputation is in tatters, that he deserved to be fired. In the future, no one will be able to treat him as a responsible authority, not without revealing their own, crippling biases.

    As for the FBI, it too has taken a major hit. Senior agents, such as the infamous Peter Strzok, were found to be severely biased against Trump, and the Inspector General’s report found that their biases implied “a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.” For example, the report noted that Strzok may have improperly prioritized the Russia investigation over the Clinton investigation during the final weeks of the campaign.

    And here’s the big, unanswered question. Fine, some FBI agents like Strzok were extremely anti-Trump. What we want to know, however, is how did it happen that these were the very individuals who ran the Bureau’s investigation of Trump? Strzok served as a lead investigator on both the Trump-Russia and Clinton-email investigations, and vowed he would “stop” Trump from becoming president in an August 2016 text message to his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page. And no one at the FBI had a clue about what they and the other biased agents were up to? If then-FBI Director Comey didn’t know, that was another reason to fire him.

    Worse still, Strzok was seconded to Special Counsel Robert Mueller to advise him on his investigation of Trump. When Strzok’s emails came to light, Mueller fired him. Very proper, to be sure, but now it seems that another FBI attorney who worked on Mueller’s investigation sent anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, including one exclaiming: “Viva le Resistance.”

    So do you mean to tell me that this doesn’t taint the Mueller investigation? A lot of people, including me, have been willing to cut Mueller a lot of slack. He’s a person of the highest integrity, everyone tells me. Fine, but do you know what a person of the highest integrity would do, after discovering he was fed information by a highly partisan FBI, and after spending a year to come up with nothing better than process crimes by subordinates? He’d wind up his investigation pretty damn quickly.

  79. Ruger Mark IV Recalled

    Posted at 1:00 pm on June 14, 2018 by Tom Knighton




    Ruger has announced a recall on their popular Mark IV pistols.

    Ruger recently discovered that all Mark IV™ pistols (including 22/45™ models) manufactured prior to June 1, 2017 have the potential to discharge unintentionally if the safety is not utilized correctly. In particular, if the trigger is pulled while the safety lever is midway between the “safe” and “fire” positions (that is, the safety is not fully engaged or fully disengaged), then the pistol may not fire when the trigger is pulled. However, if the trigger is released and the safety lever is then moved from the mid position to the “fire” position, the pistol may fire at that time. View Safety Bulletin PDF

    MARK I, MARK II™ AND MARK III™ PISTOLS ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THIS RECALL

    Although only a small percentage of pistols appear to be affected and we are not aware of any injuries, Ruger is firmly committed to safety and would like to retrofit all potentially affected pistols with an updated safety mechanism.

    Until your Mark IV™ pistol has been retrofitted or you verify that it is not subject to the recall, we strongly recommend that you not use your pistol....

      Man, Doug, you have drunk the Kool-Aid for sure. I'd imagine you are blowing about 3.0 at the moment. You have progressed from the constant whine to a pure hysterical rant better described as bat shit crazy.

      Your nutz. No other word for it.

      Nazi's now?

      Too funny. Well, and a little sad. A mind is a terrible thing to see wither away.

      Trump, who lies daily because, well because it's just what he does, says the FBI is biased and is trying to skuttle an election so the haole actually believes him, this despite the fact there is no evidence of it.

      Who are the key players in this thing and what are they accused of?

      Comey

      Everything he did was simply to cover his own ass not to get Trump. In fact, everything of substance he did helped Trump and screwed with Hillary. Yet, Trump says Comey was part of a grand conspiracy to bring him down and ol Doug believes him. This despite the fact that Comey announced the reopening of the Clinton investigation 11 days before the election, something she still blames for her loss, and then failed to mention that Trump was also being investigated at that time. In Doug-world, that makes sense.

      McCabe

      What did McCabe do? Jeff Sessions indicated he fired McCabe because according to the IG report McCabe authorized the leak of information to the WSJ on the Clinton Foundation investigation and then lied about it.

      The firing was justified because of the alleged self-serving lies McCabe told to cover for the fact that he wasn't authorized or allowed to release the material. However, the material released to the WSJ is more pertinent to this discussion.

      Andrew McCabe, alleged agent of the Clinton/Obama Deep State, allowed release of information to the WSJ where he defended the FBI’s right to investigate Clinton during a conversation with an official in Obama’s Department of Justice. For that, Trump accuses McCabe of being part of a grand conspiracy to take down the Trump presidency. Despite how illogical that is Doug salutes and goes along with Trump. But that's how things roll in Doug world.

      5 Agents didn't like Trump and made their dislike known in writing.

      Trump says this constitutes a massive conspiracy within the FBI, an organization of 35,000 people, and Doug checks his daily talking points and then agrees with him despite the fact that there has never been any evidence uncovered showing that any of these guys let the personal bias interfere with their doing their jobs in a professional manner (well except for the texting on company time).

      What did the IG report say. It criticized the agents but clearly made the point that any bias by these agents in the end had no affect one way or another on the various investigations they were involved with.

      Despite lack of any evidence to prove it, Doug accepts Trump's phony claims of a 'deep state' conspiracy just as he accepts Trump's other conspiracy theories and lies, 'Spygate', the phony list of 28 Mueller Questions, Secret Societies, the list goes on growing daily and Doug chases them like that little kitten chasing the pen light.

      #sad, so sad.

      .


      As for firing you have Comey and McCabe, Comey for the way he handled the Clinton investigation and McCabe for going against FBI policy and then lying about it. There is still a chance others may be punished.
