      I think we get a visit from a B-29 every year in Livermore at their Memorial Day Airport Open House.

      @ Deplorable Barbarian:
      FiFi has been a showpiece for years, and is an incredible sight. I’d love to see a formation flyby of Doc and FiFi. It’s been a very long time since two Superfortresses were in the air together.

      Flyboy lives in the Tri-Valley. I live in the “other” Tri-Valley Area – Fairfield/Napa/Sacramento.

      When did you leave for Idaho? I have some friends who moved up there in the last 10 years. I’ll crack me up if you’re one of them.

      And the Republicans have invoked the Nuclear Option for Gorsuch.

      What the hell?!! Nunes temporarily recusses himself from Russia probe.

      House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) temporarily recused himself Thursday from all matters related to the committee’s ongoing probe into Russian interference in the presidential election, as House investigators look into ethics charges against him.

      The House Ethics Committee released a statement Thursday saying it had “determined to investigate” allegations that “Nunes may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information, in violation of House Rules, law, regulations, or other standards of conduct.”The House Ethics Committee’s announcement that it would look into the matter comes just over two weeks after Nunes’s controversial visit to the White House grounds, and just 10 days after the Democracy 21 and CREW letter was sent to the Office of Congressional Ethics.

      That is an uncommonly quick turnaround for the committee, which often waits until it receives a formal referral and report from the Office of Congressional Ethics before taking up an inquiry. The House Ethics Committee did not lay out a timeline during which it expected to complete an initial review.


    10. 10 | April 6, 2017 3:08 pm

      @ Deplorable Idapig:

      Very important to get Nunes out of there, it appears. Because I believe HE’s the one who has seen all the dirt on Rice. Schiff-tless has seen it too and can now manipulate the data.

      Hmmm….I suggest Ryan temporarily appoint Trey Gowdy to fill the vacancy.

      EXACTLY! I used to think he was the only one in Congress who cared about getting to the truth. But it was just a dog and pony show to keep the proles quiescent.

      This is so frustrating! I know it’s only been 2-ish months, but I really wanted to see something happen that would just shock and demoralize the dems down to their core! SOMETHING!

      Can I ask a question? And I do not mean this in a snide way.

      What did anyone THINK was going to happen as a result of these hearings, other than allow SOME questioning of the people involved?

      Senate Republicans ignited the “nuclear option” to allow confirmation of President Donald Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee and bar Democrats from blocking future picks, a dramatic rule change that could deepen partisan divisions and put more ideologically extreme justices on the court.

      The 52-48 party-line vote called for by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Thursday will let the Senate confirm Neil Gorsuch on Friday to take a court seat that Republicans refused to let President Barack Obama fill during his last year in office.

      It’s the END of Democracy as we know it! The END!
      The nuclear option ends filibuster. That’s it.

      There’s one woman who was screeching that it was too important to let them DO this! SCOTUS appointments are for LIFE!!

      I informed Cupcake that so are District and Circuit Court appointments. And they can often have a greater impact on the law and practice. tens of thousands of decisions – trial and appellate – are rendered every year, and the Supreme Court receives over 1,000 cert petitions a year, of which they take a handful. Which means that those tens of thousands of decisions not heard at SCOTUS have weight, and are cited in future decisions.

      I also asked her when the last filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee was. By EITHER side. I’m still waiting for the answer.

      Did you hear the news? You’re much more likely to live to 80 years of age if you make it to 70.

      I don’t know what ‘much more likely’ means, but I think the odds if you die at 69 are grim.

      Seriously, I just heard Greg Gutfeld cite this stat and all it tells me is that no matter how old you are, the English language, not to mention statistics, is beyond most people’s grasp

      @ coldwarrior:

      I had someone in the office – one of US – say to me during that time that she hoped at least Congress would appoint a special counsel. I had to sadly inform her that the “Independent Counsel” statute had expired. The only Special Counsel that could be appointed had to come from the Justice Department. I asked how she thought that would turn out.

      Here’s a question for discussion (while we celebrating Mitch McConnell’s recent testicle transplant) – should the Independent Council rule be revived?

      You know, I’ll just say that in some naive way, people like me HOPED that the discovery process and accountability would occur at the congressional level that even the dems couldn’t interfere with. But that’s just me. I really DID hope that heads would roll because of the outright lawlessness that was occurring. But even the truth never saw the light of day because of the presses – who would have been ALL OVER IT had it been the Bush administration – absolute refusal to even cover the story! And Holder and Clinton never faced a day of discomfort for their part in the DEATHS of a LOT of people! Seriously, you can be a mass murderer if you were part of the O government.

      @ Deplorable Idapig:

      And there is where you really have it. And you’re not naive; there was a part of me that said “after this, they CAN’T ignore the facts. They just CAN’T.” But while we know that the MSM was in the trenches for Obama, we had no idea how deep they’d dug them. Not only did they IGNORE what they were witnessing, they worked overtime trying to convince us not to believe our “lyin’ eyes and ears.”

      People may decry GWB but when the Plame thing hit, his Justice Department DID appoint a Special Prosecutor. Of course, unfortunately, they appointed Paul Fitzgerald, who apparently placed greater value on getting himself a scalp than getting to the truth.

      You’d be amazed how many people on Twitter believe it takes 60 votes to be confirmed as a Supreme Court judge. Uh, No. Clarence Thomas as 52 to 48 as I recall. The GOP gave that placeholding hack Elena Kagan more votes than the Dems gave Alito.

      If O’Reilly is guilty of these allegations, I’m not going to defend him. But it’s funny seeing the left in an uproar over this while ignoring charges against Clinton and ‘Killer’ Kennedy.

      Ben Carson Discovers 500 Billion In Errors During Audit Of Obama’s HUD

      Ben Carson was the first neurosurgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins, so, he’s kind of a super hero.

      But apparently, he’s also not a bad accountant.

      President Trump picked Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, whose budget grew by leaps and bounds under Barack Obama.

      In one of his first acts as HUD Secretary, Carson ordered an audit of the agency. What he found was staggering: $520 billion in bookkeeping errors.

      “The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively,” the auditors wrote.

      But there were plenty of other problems, too.


    41. 42 | April 6, 2017 6:29 pm

      @ Deplorable Idapig:

      I think Ken Starr was the last one. And at least we got an impeachment by the House of 1/2 of the two-headed dragon. But no conviction. And Starr was boiled in oil by the press and the Democrats. And it would appear that both sides were happy to let it expire.

      In some ways, though, it would have been great to have that hanging over Obama’s head as a possibility while he, Beastie and everyone else obstructed an investigation. I’d like to think Lois Lerner would be behind bars. But then I always think good is going to triumph over evil, like a Disney movie.


    42. 43 | April 6, 2017 6:30 pm

      @ Deplorable Bumr50:

      How long, I wonder, before we’re told he doesn’t know what he’s talking about and Democrats and their cohorts in the media tell us they’re sure it’ll turn up – you know, like that $6 billion Beastie “lost” while at State.

      Yes – Fitz had a personal grudge to settle against Scooter Libby (who I know, BTW. One of the nicest people I’ve ever met!) and went out of his way to settle it by ruining the man on NO EVIDENCE! On a case where he KNEW who the leaker was – Armatage!

      This is one of the reasons I’m against the special prosecutor.


    44. 45 | April 6, 2017 6:31 pm

      @ Deplorable Idapig:

      They didn’t have to. GOP played by the rules – you’re the President, you get to make your picks. They weren’t unanimous by any means, but they never threatened a filibuster as far as I know.


    45. 46 | April 6, 2017 6:35 pm

      @ Deplorable Idapig:

      Justice will always be able to appoint a special prosecutor. The reason for this, I imagine is that if Administration officials are being investigated, then there’s a conflict of interest with the DOJ as they are likewise a branch of the administration.

      I’m not sure if my facts are right here, but I believe Libby was approached and asked if he’d like Bush to pardon him before he left office and Libby said NO. That would have halted the appeal process and he wanted to be vindicated. I believe the same was true of those two Border Patrol agents who were convicted of hurting that “poor, poor Mexican drug dealer”.

      Yes – I was aware of this. Bush only pardoned him as to jail time. Libby had every intention of appealing to clear his name. Mark Levin’s Law Firm (Landmark Legal Foundation) even filed a friend of the court brief on his behalf. I’ve yet to hear how that is going. Nor what’s happening with those border patrol agents who Bush vilified (I hated him for that!).

    52. 53 | April 6, 2017 6:49 pm

      @ Deplorable Idapig:

      I did a little LookUP on the interwebz and this story is GREAT:

      Disciplinary officials noted in their Sept. 23 report about Libby that he was found to be “forthright, candid, present, and recognized his situation with grace.”
      Libby requested over the summer that the D.C. Court of Appeals reinstate him to the D.C. Bar. On Thursday, exactly 11 years to the day following arraignment, he the court granted his request.

      Washington D.C.-based former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova believes the Libby decision is a “terrible blow” to FBI Director James Comey, who announced Sunday that the agency had no new conclusions on Hillary Clinton and her private server from the 650,000 new emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

      “Scooter Libby was restored to the practice of law by the DC court of appeals because they believed that Scooter Libby presented evidence that his original trial had been corrupted by false testimony. And that false testimony was coerced by Jim Comey’s friend Patrick Fitzgerald and Comey was part of the team to destroy the vice president of the United States and it didn’t happen,” DiGenova said.

      He added,” It’s such a smack in the face to Jim Comey. Comey and Fitzgerald tried to frame Scooter Libby, and they did, but then they didn’t get it done. And then of course that idiot George W. Bush didn’t give him a pardon he only commuted his sentence.”

      Did any rational person actually believe that the DNC wouldn’t use the thermo-nuclear option if it suited them?

      Seriously?

      The DNC subscribes to the maxim that the ‘Ends Justify the Means’ like the good little socialists they are. How long will it take for Republicans, conservatives and traditionalists to process that there NO RULES that the DNC won’t break to WIN? Winning and the holding of POWER trumps (pardon the pun) everything.

      Therefore it was only a matter of WHEN not if before the DNC went ‘thermo-nuclear’ on SCOTUS selections. No wonder they are frothing at the mouth …. again ……. They got punked AGAIN and they can’s rationalise it let alone accept it.

      And Bush wasn’t an idiot. He commuted Libby’s sentence per Libby’s request. Libby wanted his day in court to clear his name. Something he’d never be able to do if Bush just pardoned him outright.

      The White House said US agencies had assessed “with high confidence” that the Syrian government was responsible. Human, signals and geospatial intelligence revealed that Syrian chemical weapons personnel prepared chemical munitions in the Damascus suburb of Adra in the three days prior to the attack, it added.

      Intelligence, including satellite detections, also indicated that government forces had fired rockets and artillery shells from a government-controlled territory towards the suburbs where the chemical attacks occurred, the White House said.

      “We intercepted communications involving a senior official intimately familiar with the offensive who confirmed that chemical weapons were used by the regime on 21 August and was concerned with the UN inspectors obtaining evidence,” it added.

      “On the afternoon of 21 August, we have intelligence that Syrian chemical weapons personnel were directed to cease operations. At the same time, the regime intensified the artillery barrage targeting many of the neighbourhoods where chemical attacks occurred.”

      Yeah – I don’t think Assad is the problem. I don’t think he’s a good guy, but he’s not the problem here – he just chose his allies wrong. Well, wrong as far as the uS is concerned. But minorities were safe under his rule. And I don’t believe he used gas on his own people. If he used it it would be on ISIS.

      It’s the “rebels” we supported that morphed into ISIS that are the problem. Let’s face it, Obama overthrew every moderate moslem leader in the ME in favor of rabid fascist dictators who hate the west. The only time he got thwarted was Egypt threw out the moslem brotherhood and he threw a HISSY fit over that!

      I don’t see it as Deep State per se. First I’d like to know exactly what was bombed in Idlep, the type of weapons currently in Assad’s stores, the bomb racks fitted to his aircraft and the wind direction at the time of the attack.

      There possible are several scenarios:
      1.

      My first guess. That Assad’s planes dropped bombs on a ISIS – Al Qaeda chemical weapons warehouse. The photo’s shown so far, do not show evidence of a successful and intentional chemical weapons attack. Saddam gave us plenty of photographic evidence of what that would look like. These photo’s look more like a accidental uncontrolled release.

      And now the wife & her friend are worried about the attack on Syria.

      So if Trump’s Putin’s puppet, then why would he attack Syria if the Russian government is BEHIND Syria?

      @ Deplorable Idapig:
      Actually her friend thinks this is a distraction. Trump’s doing this so we don’t think he has ties to or is controlled by Russia.

I don’t know what leaked emails are being referred to and I don’t have time to look it up. This is from Jan 2013

      US backed plan to launch chemical weapons attack on Syria and blame it on Assad

      Unfortunately it doesn’t show the whole article, but it SOUNDS like something obama would do. Remember he wanted Assad GONE!

      You could just say that the dems should have just approved his appointment like the gop approved obamas. That’s the way it’s been for 200 years and they were messing with history by not giving the winner his picks since that’s been the unwritten rule all this time.

      1. Assad launched a gas attack on Idlep that killed civilians.
      The response is WHY when the whole Syrian Civil War was moving in Assad’s favour would he go out of his way to piss off the rest of the world and simultaneously shoot himself in the foot? The Russian S-400 search radars cover the region around Idlep and they would have recorded the tracks of the attacking aircraft. Without doubt also the Russians would know from their embedded Intelligence operators with the Syrians whether gas munitions were loaded or whether HE munitions were used. If it was a SNAFU where the Syrian air force hit a munitions dump that contained Sarin munitions and accidentally spread it around Idlep then we can assume that we are looking at a ‘false flag’ operation pushed by US Intelligence agencies who have no love for the Trump administration. The Deep State loves getting the US enmeshed in wars without end for obvious reasons and the fact that Graham and Mc Cain were both baying for blood in Syria makes me even more suspicious of the apparent reported ‘facts’. Twice the US has tumbled into the claws of radical Sunni Wahabbist regimes when socialist dictators fell or were pushed from power. The Baathists in Iraq and Kidaffi in Libya both kept the Islamist ‘head hackers in their countries under control through repressive regimes. Communist killers are better to deal with than suicidal head hackers anyway. The way it’s going in Syria if Assad now falls or is pushed from power after this latest ‘crazy’ attack guess who steps into the vacuum Wahabist Sunnis. The Syrian Alawites a small cult of Shi’a and what’s left of Syrian Christians will be murdered in their thousands by the victors of a Syrian theocratic Islamic republic.

      Screwing up once is an accident. Screwing up twice in both Iraq and Libya is a travesty. Screwing up yet again in Syria will be a massive tragedy for the whole ME but especially for the Israelis.

      2. Assad’s airforce carried out a conventional raid on warehouses in Idlep and the munitions stored within reuptured the chemical warheads stolen form the Syrian airfield near Damascus when it was over run by rebel Islamist forces. The gas munitions stored there by rebel groups were dispersed by the conventional HE warhead explosions and poisoned the local rebel population. US Intelligence agencies found the perfect pretext to report another gas attack and provided Trump with false flag intelligence that gave him cause to destroy the Syrian airfield from which the conventional strike was launched. US intel agencies thus forestalled Assad’s victory by pinning a gas attack onto him just as he was about to emerge from the civil was as the victor. Thus delivering up the Assad Baathist regime to the Islamist rebels and assorted ‘head hackers’ that had been losing up until now. The strike even made Trump ‘temporally’ look good and raised his stakes in the US as a man of resolve and action. Having rattled the sabre on North Korea during the visit by China’s President Xi, Trump has the ‘two-fer-one’ of showing Xi that he wasn’t kidding when it comes to North Korea thus ratcheting up the pressure on President Xi to slap NK down a peg or even instituting a decapitation strike against Kim Jong Un the NK President , relieving the pressure and threats against Japan South Korea and even the US. There is nothing like a spectacular ‘demonstration’ to convince someone (President XI) that you are a man of action.

      3. This was a false flag exercise from the very beginning by US agencies to destroy Assad and make the Russian presence in Syria moot.

      Scenario #1 appears implausible but you never know. Assad is after all an Arab and he’s down worse in the past. If true then Assad’s timing was suicidal.

      Scenario #2 Is the most plausible and closest to the ‘Occam’s Razor’ explanation with US agencies seizing an opportunity to screw Assad and the Russians when it came along and gave Trump a short term win plus the secondary Military Demonstration to convince China’s President Xi that Trump means what he says when it comes to a potential first strike in North Korea.

      Scenario #3. Fun and games within the Deep State that keeps the wars rolling and the $$$ rolling in as McCain and Graham get their jollies

      I’m going for scenario #2 myself until I get more details.

      But (channeling either one) since he couldn’t get 60 votes (too extreme you know) he shouldn’t be on the court.

      It seems though that McConnell is ONLY using the ‘nuclear option’ for judicial nominees, not other legislation. So without a 3/5 vote, Republican ideas for tax & health care reform could be screwed.

      It was only a matter of WHEN not IF that the DNC would have moved in a similar fashion. The Trump WH just beat them to the punch and they are now moaning yet again.

      Get over it mate. The civil culture war is now a ‘gloves off’ battle for the soul of the US and nothing is off the table. To the death. It’s shocking to see the Republicans for once seize the initiative. Let’s make it a habit mate!

      I don’t know how you can be married to someone who holds such a vastly different opinion than yourself. Things like religion an politics are things I feel you have to have in common for domestic tranquility!

      i do know this, putin and obama agreed in 2013 that the russians could keep assad in power IF they got rid of his chemical weapons…

      it appears that they have not kept their end of the bargain and got called on it.

      that said…i’m not real pleased about this and will hold my opinion until i see what the point of this was besides the above…

      That is an almost perfect rehash of what dribbled out from the CIA about the Podesta emails. I remember that bullshit letter Brennan sent out saying ALL the intelligence agreed with him except the letter didn’t say that, the NSA did NOT sign on. Remember that ‘analysis’ paper they released showing a code fragment that supposedly had the Russian ‘fingerprints’ on it? yeah, Brennan has been shoveling this bullshit since before God started making dirt, he’s on the other side and I want to live long enough to see him swinging from a gibbit with crows feasting on his rotting carcass.

      I didn’t get to bed until 4 am and I had some time to just mull this over. All the gum-flapping about the intelligence agencies pulling a fast one on a very naive Donald Trump ignores one thing. The IC is not his only source of intel. The military is another and at the top of that chain of command is Gen. Mattis. If anyone wants to stand here and try to sell the idea that HE was taken in by rogue intelligence agencies, I’ll shell out for the popcorn.
