      So John Kerry just left a meeting @ L’Avenue in Paris w/3 Iranians. A friend was sitting next to their table and heard JK blasting @realDonaldTrump. The Iranians had a 5 person security detail and left in diplomatic vehicles. Is he FARA registered?

      I don’t know why I think this but – there are family connections to an Iranian or Iranians? A daughter married to someone? I can’t remember. Or maybe I’m mis-remembering

      If you can believe Snopes that info is incorrect. Apparently his son in law’s parents were Iranian born. But, allegedly they have no connections to anyone in power in Iran.

      That’s true. Unfortunately they were the only ones I could find that had the info. If I didn’t have this headache I might have been able to find better info.

      Background, I no longer visit or buy anything from a local store because I am sick and tired of being “soft mugged” by a black person wanting money…. and I can see there are three more black persons near by just watching.

      Yeah so it only costs me $5 or $10 to get away,

      No longer will I shop at that store.

      Well, too broke for cigars this week so far. Drug out my pipes and my meerschaum is missing, dang it. Looks like I’ll be trying out the heavily used vintage briar I picked up at an estate sale a couple years ago. Cleaned it up really nice, slapped a different stem on it, and think I’ll give it a shot, should be beautifully seasoned.

      posting from the hotel after the archery tournament
      after they finished she thought her score was a 278 which was a new personal best but she felt like there was a mistake, she thought that was too high.

      she was right, there was a mistake
      she shot 282

      she now has a national ranking

      her overall girls (elementary, middle and high school)rank is 350 out of 6689
      her rank among high school girls is 221 out of 2393
      and her rank among 9th grade girls is 64th out of 749

      and to think she was shooting 220 at the start of the year

      No, what’s odd to me is that I now think about something that happened 25 or 30 years ago and I participated in it. I am going on 36 years this year with the same company (sort of, our division was bought about 20 years ago, so the name changed, but that’s about it). When I think about these things, I realize that someone thinking the same thoughts when I got out of school would have been referencing time in the early 50’s. Actually, someone with the level of experience I have now would have started working shortly after WWII ended.

      I’m not sure if these thoughts are disturbing or merely observations.

    18. 19 | May 12, 2018 9:26 pm

      Challenge for tomorrow- a guy who does some work for us sometimes is a pastor. When we had to replace our fridge a few months ago, Mrs. RW said she’d go to his church if he helped us move the old one out & the new one in. He took her up on it. So we’re going to his church tomorrow.

      Prayers that God will convict her that she needs Him. She’s not a believer at all- she’s a ‘Once you die, that’s all folks’.

      Knowing Will, I have a feeling he’s going to aim a sermon straight at her. I don’t know anything about his church or his preaching style. I think it’s going to be a bit more Charismatic than I’m used to, but I know they’ve done mission trips & work with helping the homeless downtown. It could be interesting…

      My job interview is Thursday, and I’m nervous.

      I HATE being nervous.

      My old man did a lot of business with this corp, and one of his best friend’s daughters turned me on to the opportunity. They paid for my young life in a lot of ways.

      I’ve never been this nervous for an interview. Usually I’m like “Fuck em’ if they don’t want me.”

      Also uncomfortable accepting “somebody knows somebody” help.

      I know it’s STUPID.

      Alexa and Siri Can Hear This Hidden Command. You Can’t.

      Researchers can now send secret audio instructions undetectable to the human ear to Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant.

      Many people have grown accustomed to talking to their smart devices, asking them to read a text, play a song or set an alarm. But someone else might be secretly talking to them, too.

      Over the last two years, researchers in China and the United States have begun demonstrating that they can send hidden commands that are undetectable to the human ear to Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Assistant. Inside university labs, the researchers have been able to secretly activate the artificial intelligence systems on smartphones and smart speakers, making them dial phone numbers or open websites. In the wrong hands, the technology could be used to unlock doors, wire money or buy stuff online — simply with music playing over the radio.

      A group of students from University of California, Berkeley, and Georgetown University showed in 2016 that they could hide commands in white noise played over loudspeakers and through YouTube videos to get smart devices to turn on airplane mode or open a website.

      This month, some of those Berkeley researchers published a research paper that went further, saying they could embed commands directly into recordings of music or spoken text. So while a human listener hears someone talking or an orchestra playing, Amazon’s Echo speaker might hear an instruction to add something to your shopping list.

      “We wanted to see if we could make it even more stealthy,” said Nicholas Carlini, a fifth-year Ph.D. student in computer security at U.C. Berkeley and one of the paper’s authors.

      Mr. Carlini added that while there was no evidence that these techniques have left the lab, it may only be a matter of time before someone starts exploiting them. “My assumption is that the malicious people already employ people to do what I do,” he said.

      @ right_wing2:
      Okay this is funny. We actually did make it to church. It’s in the guy’s home, just a handful of people there. Pastor Will’s youngest, 3-4 probably, is carrying around this stuffed black & white dog. Before the service started she gave it to Mrs. RW.

      Interesting service. It was a lot like I expected- very charismatic and very different from what I’m used to. Just a guess, but I’d bet most of the people there (including Will) have struggled with some kind of addiction or another.

      Good service, on part of the Sermon on the Mount, Matt 5:8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.’ At the end of the service, Will asked her if she believed, and she said ‘Kind of’, he asked if she’d pray with him to accept Christ and she did! Now, the sincerity is between her & God, but at least she prayed with him. I hope she meant every word of it.

      @ right_wing2:

      I hope she did too.

      I enjoy going to different places of worship.

      I’m a Catholic married to a Methodist, and I generally prefer my services to be more staid and contemplative, but I find it very interesting and uplifting.

      I’ve said this before, but my wife is the daughter of Salvation Army officers (retired now) and currently works for them as a bookkeeper. They have their own places of worship. They’re largely in, er, economically challenged areas.

      But because it’s the Salvation Army, I’ve seen some incredible people in challenging circumstances come to worship Jesus Christ as best they can, by whatever means necessary.

      I’ve also struggled with addiction, and maintain that it was faith that pulled me through. Not 12-step meetings (although they work for many people).


    49. 50 | May 13, 2018 9:37 pm

      @ Deplorable Bumr50:
      After my ex & I broke up, I had some problems with alcohol. Never to the point I couldn’t go to work, but bad enough. I’d have a couple beers every night, and on Friday (if I didn’t work Sat) and every Saturday night I’d get drunk on some of the nastiest mixes you could imagine.

      Will’s church has done some overseas missions, they work with the homeless downtown, and they’ve got a prison ministry too. Great place for people who are broken & recognize it.

      I’ll see if she’d be willing to go back here in a month or so. She’s stubborn- she’ll push back and get very crabby if you push things.

      This little girl came back in as we were singing at the beginning of service, crying her eyes out. And she went straight to Mrs RW. Dad picked her up, but it’s still funny since we’d met her not 15 minutes before. Kids & critters can sense things.

      The Fakenstianians amount to nothing less than a gang or murderers who broke into someones house, murdered several family members and held on to the house for awhile. When the family broke out of their bedrooms and forced the gang out of the living-room and out onto the front lawn the murderers bitterly insist that the house be returned to them because they stole it fair and square.

      I keep seeing declarative sentences such as “When Iranian sanctions start taking effect, Turkey’s economy will take a hit”.

      Can someone explain the connection(s) to me? I don’t know what the relationships are.

      In Islam, it is perfectly acceptable, encouraged even, for Muslims to lie to infidels. What the Saudi’s say in public to us probably is not what they are saying in private to the Fakenstianians. That’s just how Muslims are.

      If you cannot accept or understand that Muslims lie to infidels as a normal and accepted part of Islam, you will never understand the conflict between Islam and the entire rest of the world.

      The roots of Islam literally are murder, theft and deceit. Nothing has changed about Islam since Mohammad murdered the caravan owner of the caravan his father was a dung collector in, blackmailed the owners wife into marrying him and then ran it into the ground because Mohammad was an illiterate ruthless cowardly murderer. Yes, cowardly, he poisoned the caravan owner.

      Once he had run the caravan into the ground because he had no comprehension of how to run a business, he transformed what remained of one of the most successful caravans in the entire Silk road trading world into the mythical “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves” a group of murdering cutthroat bandits.

      It was only when the residents of Medina used dogs to track Mohammad down that he came up with his infamous “Prophet” act. Like the Christian “Satan” Mohammad was a murderer and a thief (and a pedophile) from the very beginning.

      Turkey was caught violating the Iranian sanctions prior to Caliph Obama’s lifting them. These “Assertions” literally amount to nothing more than political propaganda to protect Iran and Turkey from the ongoing prosecution of several high level Turkish Banker’s involved in the Turkish Governments unofficial officially sanctions systemic violations of those sanctions.

      In short, Turkey got busted massively violating the sanctions, the Obama deal with Iran temporarily made that fact moot, but now it is causing a huge international stink.

      The Biggest Sanctions-Evasion Scheme in Recent History

      https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2018/01/iran-turkey-gold-sanctions-nuclear-zarrab-atilla/549665/

      Yesterday, Turkish banker Mehmet Hakan Atilla was found guilty in a Manhattan courtroom for a range of financial crimes. His dramatic trial revealed that tens of billions in dollars and gold moved from Turkey to Iran through a complex network of businesses, banks, and front companies.

      The trial was a long time coming. In late October of 2016, Justice Department officials paid a visit to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, the Washington-based think tank where I serve as senior vice president. They wanted to talk about Reza Zarrab. A dual Iranian-Turkish national, Zarrab was the swashbuckling gold trader who had helped Iran evade sanctions with the help of Turkish banks in 2013 and 2014, yielding Iran an estimated $13 billion at the height of the efforts to thwart Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. A leaked report by prosecutors in Istanbul in March 2014 suggested that Zarrab spearheaded a second sanctions-busting scheme involving fake invoices for billions more in fictitious humanitarian shipments to Iran that were processed through Turkish banks.

      @ doriangrey:

      I’m familiar w/Taqqiya

      But without being starry-eyed about it, I think Bin Salman is serious. They’ve had it with the Iranians and they’re betting on the strong horse – the U.S.

      In general, going over all the Iranian and Saudi people I’ve known over the years, I tend to like the Iranians better as individuals (the Saudis can be unbearable snobs and you know the story of the one family whose kids went after my Molly). But politically, at this point in time, a triumvirate of allies consisting of the U.S., Israel and Saudi could be a pretty impressive game changer.

      AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Thank you.

      The other day I saw something about a Turkish ship that, according to the manifest, was carrying wheat. It was about to be inspected by authorities at a Houthi port in Yemen when all of a sudden there was an explosion down below. The captain wouldn’t allow an inspection so I think they just impounded everything. I didn’t see any follow up reports but the thought of whoever invested in that shipment and all the parties waiting for the goods just having a really bad day was very amusing.

      I’m listening to Jared Kushner right now. I have to tell you, he is reminding me a lot of JFK and Senator Obama. Whatever may be said about President Obama, I remember when I first heard Senator Obama speak, and I knew right then he would one day be President of the United States, whether for good or for ill, and as we now know, mostly for ill.

      As I said, there is something about Kushner’s speech, his delivery isn’t particularly good, but it sounds amazingly like something JFK would have said, like something you expect to hear from a 20 something bright eyed full of optimism and hope kid.

      It has all of the hope and optimism reminiscent of a Reagan speech only lacking in the cynicism of maturity. Reagan fervently desired, demanded that America be that Bright Shining City on the Hill, but his optimism was tempered with the knowledge that the worlds bad actors were not going to quit being bad actors just because America insisted on being a beacon of hope and freedom.

      The narrative up to now is that he lied to the FBI AND the WH – the same lie, and the WH fired him.

      But he didn’t lie to the FBI

      Had forgotten about that, even though I suffered through at least 3 courses as an undergrad and one as a graduate student where the book was written by one of the profs. Although to be fair, in the graduate class, after class started, the prof told us not to buy the book as it was “too expensive”. Too late for me, I’d already bought it, but I did appreciate Dr. Rao’s intent.

It’s not clear to me what position Mueller held at the time, so I don’t know what authority he had.

      Don’t know if anyone watched Hannity when he was talking about that Russian guy. This American, Bob Levinson, who has been held in Iran for 11 yrs,is the guy the FBI wanted to rescue.

      I remember reading about the Levinson case. First,he is NOT a CIA employee. They used him as a contractor. I forget why, but Levinson wanted to go back into Iran and the woman at the CIA who handled him (forgot her name) said no way. He went in anyway and I don’t remember if she finally gave in or if he just told her ‘fuck it, I’m going”. IIRC, he wasn’t there long before he got picked up.

      So, 1) He is NOT CIA 2) He was NOT on an authorized mission, he went rogue.

      That’s the big reason they can’t get him out. As far as the Iranians are concerned, the guy is a spy with no political leverage to his advantage. Not yet anyway. So they’re going to keep him until they can get something they want for him. Something the U.S. is willing to pay. Evidently, there were several times when that almost happened, but never did.

      Second thing: If you watched the segment, the woman, Robyn Girtz (Gritz?) is the woman who was accusing the FBI of EEOC violations, McCabe specifically, among others, and she was the one Mike Flynn went to bat for, thereby pissing off all the 7th floor.

      And I have no idea why the FBI was working a CIA case.

      I heard Rush talking about your legislature’s plan to fund the 5 unfunded public pensions using your home values. A tax based on assessed value for the next 30 yrs. And the really neat part, according to the genius that came up with it, is that you can’t just sell your house and leave because the tax is going to be part of the house’s value and no one will be stupid enough to buy it.

      I predict a lot of unexplained fires claiming total loss and lots of insurance payouts.

      One more example of the political class/kleptocracy’s belief that all money belongs to the state and individuals are merely holding it for the state until the state decides to reclaim it.

      @ doriangrey:

      I will never forget the first time I realized there are people in the gov’t who believe exactly that. Driving to work, listening to the radio, the winners of a call-in quiz were people at the IRS. During conversation w/ them, the host teased them about how “my money is being spent”

      And, with no hesitation, all humor/friendliness gone from his voice, the IRS guy sez “It. Is. Not. Your. Money.” Each word enunciated separately, like you do with a child not paying attention.

      It was chilling.

      To which the radio host should have replied… “But IT IS MY STOUT HEMP ROPE and you are about to be personally introduced to it, then it will once again BE MY MONEY”.
