  • Coming Soon – The Trump Pyongyang Hotel

    by The Barbarian ( 157 Comments › )
    Filed under Uncategorized at June 13th, 2018 - 10:19 am

    In many ways, Trump’s strategy with North Korea has its parallel in his strategy with Black Americans in the election. Granted it did not exactly pull in the Black vote in 2016, but support for him among our Black brethren continues to rise.

    And what was the strategy? “Why don’t you give US a try? The Democrats have essentially done nothing for you and promised you everything election after election.”

    I find Trump’s strategy involving Rocket Man equally brilliant. North Korea’s chief trading partner is China – in fact, they’re probably their ONLY real trading partner of worth at this point. And what has it gotten them? A starving populance, an economy drilling down so far that you’d think it was for oil exploration. Trump says “hey, do you know what you COULD have if you’d stop with the BS and the sabre rattling? Look what your neighbor SOUTH Korea has – the Olympics (they DIDN’T have to share – they did it as a gesture) – immense textile and automobile manufacturing. What has CHINA ever given you?” And that should get Rocket Man thinking, especially since THIS time the United States isn’t coming to the table with a fat check in exchange for promises to behave and a container ship loaded with Bush’s Beans…and Beans….and Beans (among other things).

    Remember that Potemkin Village ski resort? Imagine, Kim, if it was filled with actual paying guests coming to ski. Jobs for your people. And no Bush’s beans on the menu.

    I’ll bet that was part of that four-minute video. Maybe looking at the potential Trump Pyongyang may have made him realize that China really isn’t “all that and a bag of chips.” Speaking of “chips” – maybe we should have Kim and his mobile film crew walk through an American supermarket if and when he visits here. What do you think the North Koreans would think if they saw the bounty the evil capitalists can avail themselves of by merely leaving their homes. Even the poorest American on public assistance has aisles and shelves of food and sundries to choose from. And not a single aisle marked “Tree bark.”

    The urban legend that it wasn’t political rhetoric that turned the people of Russia around vis-a-vis the West. It was watching episodes of “Dallas” and “Dynasty” and seeing how those capitalists REALLY lived that got to them.

      Wanted to throw up something so we didn’t get expired out. Just an open thread of course….
      Also, the title is in no way a disparagement on Trump – it’s all I could think of on the fly. I will glady take suggestions from my clever cohorts for something snappier.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Oh, I don’t know….I’d be interested in what you think about splitting California into three parts. I’m assuming it will be on the general ballot in November. See, the Democrats pulled another nasty rigging on the populace – you can no longer put an initiative on a ballon in the primary election (you can, however, put a legislative REFERENDUM on the ballot) because many conservative initiatives passed because they were on a primary ballot. Liberals don’t need to put initiatives on the ballot – the damn legislature will do it for them.

      As for splitting California – if it passes, it will completely KILL the clout that California has in Washington. The UP side is that the area known as “Southern California” will probably be GOP controlled as opposed to Northern California and “California” – which will be Liberal (California) and Moderate lean left (Northern; there are a lot of ex-military in this area because of Travis Air Base, Moffett Field and the red counties in the north). Of course, it has to pass Congress to be approved, and believe me, the California Congressional delegation is not going to surrender the power they have to become nobodies in redrawn Congressional district.

      But if it passes, “California” better work on desalinization plants since I doubt that “Northern California” is going to send them any of their water and I know that Southern California is going to tell them to take a hike.

      I think if it passed, the infrastructure issues would be enormous. But I can’t see it passing even at the state ballot level, never mind congressional approval. Also, I don’t know how the population would be distributed among the 3 resulting states. Anybody have a count?

      @ eaglesoars:

      California would have the biggiest population, I think, something like 8 million as it will encompass the Greater Los Angeles area which is, essentially, 12 suburbs in search of a City….

      Second would PROBABLY be Northern California, with about 3-4 million in the Greater Bay Area – San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, and the counties of Alameda and Contra Costa; once you get north of Sacramento, the population becomes thin and sparse.

      Southern California would have population slightly smaller, but it has the Imperial Valley farmlands, plus the urban centers of San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino.

      But yes, the infrastructure handling would be a nightmare. Plus the University of California and California State University collegiate systems.

      The one thing that would be marvelous? Southen California could pass it’s own GUN laws and maybe the citizens would finally be able to conceal carry.

      Cough cough… You do know that San Diego Country all by itself has a population of 4 million, right? Southern California might have a larger population than California. Riverside and San Bernardino are pretty big, the Imperial Valley??

      Now, as to my thoughts on dividing California into three states. It is an idea that I reluctantly support. Not because I wish to see California divided, but, because it is already divided and the far liberal agenda of less than 1/3rd of the state is already being used by Sacramento to divide and abuse the state.

      Dividing California into three states sadly is probably the only way to break the Democrats illegal stranglehold over the state.

      Umm, actually I suspect that it passing at the state ballot level is already a slam dunk done deal. I think you almost have to live here to understand the degree of anger and frustration those of us who do not live in what would become the new state of California have with Sacramento and those living in the I-5 corridor.

      The fake media narrative of California leaving the United States is and always has been a Marxist wet dream with ZERO possibility of happening. Its support is pretty much limited to a bunch of Marxist nut jobs in the Bay Area.

      The dividing California into multiple states idea on the other hand has had a surprisingly wide support across the state for decades. The idea is far more popular than the media would like people not in California to believe.

      Like myself, the majority of people who support the idea, do not do so because they want to see California broken up, but because they feel that Sacramento is corrupt, abusive and unresponsive to the needs of 3/4th of the State.

      @ doriangrey:

      I was going by current population numbers I have – Greater L.A is somewhere around 18 million; Greater Bay Area is over 7 million. However, Northern Calfiornia has gobbled up a great deal of the more populous areas of Red California (Merced, San Joaquin).

      but because they feel that Sacramento is corrupt, abusive and unresponsive to the needs of 3/4th of the State.

      Precisely. There is not even the PRETENSE of caring about the wants and needs of Red California, perfectly summed up in the character of their candidate for Governor – Gavin Newsome. Gavin’s basic attitude is summed up in his words when told there was not support for gay marriage in California – “It’s going to happen whether you like it or not!”

      I’m sure Gavin was NOT expecting to run against a Republican for the governorship – I’m sure he expected that there would be enough votes to put Villagiarosa over the magic no. 2 slot. If Cox pulls it off, it will be a miracle. The good news is that we know there is no possibility of the Dem supermajority in the State Senate returning, but I’d love to see the GOP pick up seats in the assembly.

      Its less than 13 million. The populations of Orange, Riverside, San Diego and San Bernardino are around 11 million. The “Greater L.A area is often cited as being 17.7 million, but that includes Riverside and San Bernardino. When you remove them, it drops to less than 13 million.

      Depending on how the three states are divided, Southern California could actually end up being larger than California. This because there are a lot of area’s included in the Greater L.A area that like Riverside and San Bernardino are likely to end up in Southern California rather than in California.

      Imperial County only has a population of around 175,000 (Well, at least according to the 2010 census). Kern County with its nearly 1 million people would end up in Southern California.

      I can’t believe the judge will let Mueller get away with this but who knows…

      ————
      Special counsel Robert Mueller and his deputy Rush Atkinson filed a 14-page motion Tuesday arguing that the government shouldn’t have to release certain evidence to indicted Russian company Concord Management and Consulting LLC due to ongoing “interference operations” against the United States.

      In the motion, Mueller’s team requested a protective order to: (1) keep other co-defendants named in the February 16 indictment from accessing the government’s evidence against them; and (2) to keep additional evidence under the control of government attorneys and away from Concord Management itself.

      While the request is clearly both unconstitutional and an indisputable violation of the spirit of the law, I can easily see the Judge allowing it. This is literally Mueller’s trademark or signature move. This is exactly how Mueller managed to convict two innocent men of murders he knew for a fact that Whitey Bulgar was responsible for.

      Exactly how Mueller convinces judges to so clearly violate the US Constitution and the spirit of the law is utterly beyond me, but he has made his career doing it for 30 some odd years. Mueller should be in prison for prosecutorial misconduct and mendacious malfeasance at a bare minimum.


    23. 24 | June 13, 2018 4:30 pm

      @ doriangrey:

      Not two innocent men – FOUR. Two of the died in prison before the uncontrovertible evidence of their innocence was discovered. The civil suit the four families brought resulted in $107 million in damages.

      I read the full request. A lot of legal BS – even bringing in the Crime Victims Act (and I frankly didn’t follow the explanation for the invocation), but what really appears to be happening is that the defense lawywers are calling foul and that Mueller wants pretty much to redact information. Uh, how in the name of heaven can a JURY come to a legal verdict on the basis of redacted evidence?

      In truth, you would think Mueller would have done what GOOD prosecutors do. Get your ducks in a row, then file the indictment and charge (precisely what the OJ Prosecutors DIDN’T do; wait a year – quietly collect evidence and give the bastard all the time in the world to make dumb statements he can’t walk back). Mueller was completely caught off guard when those defendants sent attorneys into court. He wasn’t expecting it. Especially when it came to light he’d indicted a company that didn’t even EXIST inthe relevant criminal period.

      Being serious, and totally on topic. Trump was 100% correct about the beaches and tourism.

      He has done his research.

      Quite often I visit the CIA Factbook site to look up the data on countries when they are in the news.

      https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/

      OK stop laughing, yes I do think the CIA Factbook is accurate and unbiased.

      So the Korea, North entry. https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html

      Agriculture – products:
      rice, corn, potatoes, wheat, soybeans, pulses, beef, pork, eggs, fruit, nuts
      Industries:
      military products; machine building, electric power, chemicals; mining (coal, iron ore, limestone, magnesite, graphite, copper, zinc, lead, and precious metals), metallurgy; textiles, food processing; tourism

      Tourism?

      Now same section from Korea, South

      Agriculture – products:
      rice, root crops, barley, vegetables, fruit, cattle, pigs, chickens, milk, eggs, fish
      Industries:
      electronics, telecommunications, automobile production, chemicals, shipbuilding, steel

      Looks to me as a simple minded person that if you combine those two countries they will do great things together.

      The north mines the ores and grows the food, the south turns it into finished goods.

      Most of North Korea is rural, in a rural area you can grow things and raise animals to provide food.

      I admit I have not looked into this as deeply as I should have, but why can’t they produce enough food to feed themselves? It is not a densly populated country.

      I don’t know what their soil is like, nor water resources (only 10% of China’s land mass is arable) but farming is labor intensive even with machines (which require fuel) and the labor has to be healthy. They kill their babies because they can’t feed them and sometimes eat the babies. Go find a book called Escape from Camp 14. Another book by an idiot American who defected to North Korea, Charles Jenkins, “The Reluctant Communist” gives a good idea of what daily life was like for a USEFUL idiot.

      “California” would have approximately 12.3 million residents, according to the plan’s supporters, and would be centered around Los Angeles County and include five other counties to the north and along the coast up to Monterey and San Benito counties;
      “Northern California” would have 40 counties with approximately 13.3 million people and include the Bay Area and everything up to the Oregon border, including California’s current state capital of Sacramento;
      “Southern California” would have 13.9 million people in 12 counties and, despite its name, carve out a large section of central California all the way up to Mono County, making a loop around Los Angeles to claim Orange County, San Diego and the southern flank of the state;

      eaglesoars asked about this just this afternoon, and I speculated that Southern California would probably have the largest population. Seems I’m not the only one who calculates it that way.

      FBI agent Peter Strzok assured his mistress and colleague Lisa Page that they would stop Donald Trump from winning the presidency in a text message, a new report from the DOJ inspector general finds per Bloomberg News White House Correspondent Jennifer Jacobs.

      “Several FBI employees Who played critical roles in the investigation sent political messages,” the report reads, according to Jacobs.

      “(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page wrote to Strzok, Bloomberg reports.

      “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it,” Strzok reportedly replied.

      Biggest political whitewash in history

      Former FBI Director James Comey “deviated” from bureau and Justice Department procedures in handling the probe into Hillary Clinton, damaging the agencies’ image of impartiality even though he wasn’t motivated by politics, the department’s watchdog found in a highly anticipated report.

      “While we did not find that these decisions were the result of political bias on Comey’s part, we nevertheless concluded that by departing so clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms, the decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice,” Inspector General Michael Horowitz said in the report’s conclusions, which were obtained by Bloomberg News.

      My understanding is that there is a SECOND IG investigation that is in the works that pertains to the surveillance on the Trump campaign by the FBI with the help and support of the DOJ vis-a-vis obtaining the FISA warrant. Although it could be something else. Hard to keep up.

      But now the IG could find “no political bias” considering Comey’s subesequent remarks and the Strzok text saying “we’ll stop him” as if the FBI can somehow thwart an election is baffling.

      All I can say is that if the FBI wants to ameliorate the damage of this report as respects its practices, Strzok should be told to clean out his desk before close of business.

      And please, for the good of the country, it’s time to replace Jeff Sessions. Replace him with Andrew McCarthy. Sessions is an effing Swamp Wimp that NEVER should have had the job in the first place.

      2) On Strzok, page 535: “The OIG referred Mr. Strzok for an investigation into whether his actions violated FBI and DoJ policies.” This is in regards to the revelation that Comey, Page, and Strzok had private emails for FBI business.

      3) Page 535: “The OIG found no evidence to connect the political views expressed by these employees with the specific investigative decisions, but referred five employees for investigation into whether the messages violated the FBI’s Offense Codes and Penalty Guidelines.”

      FBI Employees Leaked To The Press Regularly. According to the IG report, “We identified numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization and with no official reason to be in contact with the media, who were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters.” FBI agents received “benefits from reporters” as well, including golf outings, drinks and meals.

      Former Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik Should Have Recused. While Hillary was under investigation, Kadzik tried to get his son a job on Hillary’s campaign. He also sent an email to John Podesta, head of the Clinton campaign, which included the schedule of the release of Clinton’s emails in FOIA litigation.

      Huber will ‘do’ the prosecution.

      And he’ll either choose not to, or bring jay-walking charges or blow the case completely.

      Trump needs to start declassifying docs.

      The presser by Wray was pathetic. There was no outrage, no disappointment, just a pat on the back for the FBI and an assurance that people “will be held accountable”. That’s code for “You losers have the attention span of a fruit fly and as soon as the SuperBowl comes around, we’re flushing this bullshit.”

      FBI Official: Clinton’s Answers To Us Were “Hard To Impossible To Believe”

      The FBI officials who interviewed Hillary Clinton about her use of a private email server found some of her claims “hard to impossible to believe,” according to the Department of Justice’s inspector general’s report.

      Clinton repeatedly claimed ignorance when pressed by FBI agents in a July 2016 interview about receiving multiple emails with a “(C)” classification marker, according to the IG’s report on the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s private server. She said she did not know that the marker denoted classified information and “speculated it was a reference to paragraphs ranked in alphabetical order.”

      The unidentified agent who took the lead in questioning Clinton about her private server stated, “I filed that in the bucket of hard to impossible to believe.”

      The other FBI agents present during the interview with Clinton were shocked at how “technically illiterate” she was, according to former FBI Director James Comey.

      “I can’t sit here and tell you I believed her,” Comey said, according to the report. “I can only tell you, in no particular could we prove that she was being untruthful to us.”

      ok, Hannity is mis-characterizing something. He’s using the Strzok/Page exchange as an example of the bias Horowitz said he didn’t find.

      That exchange was about the Trump/Russia investigation, this report is about the Hillary email investigation and Horowitz was referring to Comey’s bias, which he simply said he found no EVIDENCE of. There is bleed-over between the 2 investigations because (as I understand it at this point), Horowitz is trying to show that the email investigation, specifically Weiner’s laptop, was ignored in order to focus on the Russia/Trump investigation.

      that’s a very generous ‘take’. Knowledge of espionage and failure to report it is a violation of how many laws? That behavior on the part of the National Security branch of the executive speaks not just to a laissez-faire attitude, but to deliberate and willful complicity in said espionage.

      aka, treason

      @ eaglesoars:

      Oh indeed. Remember Rice was the one that wrote silly email to herself the day of the inauguration saying “Obama wanted everything done ‘by the book.'” The first question out of my mouth in response to that would be “is there some reason this needed to be memorialized? Wouldn’t it be ASSUMED the President would do it ‘by the book'”?

      Obama is up to his eyeballs in this. He said he never knew Hillary had a private server – I think the IG’s report shows he sent a plethora of emails to that private account. And what is this BS about “disciplinary action” – is that Gov-Speak for FIRING. Because it damn well should be!

      @ eaglesoars:

      Yeah I think they do. I think they all really thought Obama was a wishy washy asshole that couldn’t be trusted but would give them anything they wanted.

      A lot of people are wondering if there is anyone in the FBI that isn’t a fucking traitor. I think this summary answers that question. (I do not know exactly which page of the IG Report this is from)

      https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/fbi-agent-who-questioned-hillary-email-probe-called-her-president-4

      Comey sent the first letter to Congress about the Weiner laptop discovery on October 28, 2016. Agent 1 and Agent 5 exchanged instant messages about the letter and Trump’s reaction to it later that day. The sender of each messages is noted after the timestamp.

      13:46:48, Agent 5: “jesus christ… Trump: Glad FBI is fixing ‘horrible mistake’ on clinton emails… for fuck’s sake.”

      13:47:27, Agent 5: “the fuck’s sake part was me, the rest was Trump.”

      13:49:07, Agent 1: “Not sure if Trump or the fifth floor is worse…”

      13:49:22, Agent 5: “I’m so sick of both…”

      13:50:25, Agent 5: “+o( TRUMP”207

      13:50:30, Agent 5: “+o( Fifth floor”

      13:50:34, Agent 5: “+o( FBI”

      13:50:44, Agent 5: “+o( Average American public”

      Agent 1 and Agent 5 apparently are from the treasonous 7th floor and have nothing but contempt for those agents who work on the 5th floor. The exact same contempt that they have for anyone who voted for Trump. The implication here is that the 5th floor (FBI Headquarters J. Edgar Hoover Building in Washington, D.C) is staffed by “Regular American’s, i.e. are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing [emphasis added]. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.” of the variety that voted for Trump. (No doubt also the source of the reputed 28 agents that requested congressional protection to testify before Congress)

      Friday night in Houston and I started to update my profile on LinkedIn. For those not in the know it is basically a site where you list your work experience and you get job offers!

      You list the places where you have worked and your academic achievements and most importantly where you currently work.

      I have a problem….

      If I list my current job responsibilities then it will expose the current predicament that the company I work for is in.

      My job is…

      Receptionist
      Telephone switchboard operator
      Mail room clerk
      Goods receiving operative
      Production supervisor
      Assembler of through hole component printed circuit boards
      Hand assembly of surface mount boards ( they are usually done by a machine, but I have skills )
      Sales
      Sales support
      Purchasing
      Testing of circuit boards
      Repair of circuit boards that fail when tested
      Quality control
      Quality control supervisor
      Research and Development
      General office manager
      Manager of janitorial services
      Janitor ( cleaned the rest room this afternoon )
      Shipping manager
      Shipping person ( proficient in UPS Worldship )

      Also responsible for maintaining an adequate supply of beverages and beverage containers for any visitors ( coffee and styrofoam cups )

      Now you know why I take my cat to work. Someone to talk to.

      I had some fascinating discussions with my superiors at work today.

      The guy who got the job I should have gotten flat out told me that he knew that I was much more qualified then he was, but he just “interviews well.”

      And his boss, when I told him that I was about to quit, because I’m tired of being one of three people (out of 8 in our department) who actually does anything useful, while we all get paid the same thing, said “I’m sorry you feel that way.”

      Feelings? It’s got nothing to do with my “feelings.” It’s an incontrovertible fact, and he knows it. 3 of them are utterly worthless, 1 has been there a few months, and could turn out okay, if she ever figures out that she doesn’t know everything. The fifth one probably could do the job, but really doesn’t seem interested in learning it.

      I told him it would be better for everyone involved if they just fired at least 4 of them, since it wouldn’t really increase our workload. It would actually probably decrease it, since we wouldn’t have to correct the stuff they screw up.

      He said that we can’t fire them, because our contract requires a certain staffing level.

      Basically, the three of us will be expected to carry the department for the foreseeable future, and we’re stuck with the dead weight.

      Only a government contractor could make money this way…

      Works out great for them until the three of you quit.

      Whoever wrote that contract was an idiot. Most government contracts also have performance requirements in the statement of work — i.e, you need to do x, y, and z or you are delinquent on your contractual requirements. Just filling space is usually not in the contract

      Oh, it has plenty of performance requirements that we have to meet. It doesn’t say who has to do them, though.

      Our contract also specifies staffing levels in certain areas, though, since they more or less relate to performance. If we don’t have enough COs, for example, security can suffer. In the case of my department, they look at it as sort of a “customer service” thing. We have to have a certain number of case managers to take care of a given number of inmates.

      So we meet that requirement. It’s just that half of them don’t actually do anything. The rest of us do twice the work.

      Now that I’m finally on the phones after doing Quality Evaluation during tax season, I’m competing against 33 other tech support agents. I’ve never done tech support, so it’s a challenge.

      Up until just this week my survey scores weren’t being recorded, so I was just being ranked based on my handle time, which was pretty high.

      Yesterday, my survey scores showed up. Like a shot I’m at #5. The only call I got a no on issue resolution on for yesterday was one I had to send up to a higher support level. My supervisor sent out the scores and said ‘Watch out! Bruce’s survey’s are coming through and he’s coming for you!’

      Much better than I expected.
