    Enjoy this open.

    I liked this bigly:

    AG Barr Mocks Pelosi to Her Face: “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?”

    Methinks Barr might have had the line of the year.

      interesting

      Ex-FBI lawyer: Officials were ‘quite worried’ Comey appeared to be blackmailing Trump with dossier

      On the latest episode of the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” broadcast on Tuesday, Baker said he and others were so concerned about Comey briefing Trump on January 6, 2017 on Russia’s interference in the election as well as the controversial dossier that “analogies” were made to J. Edgar Hoover, the former FBI director who famously abused his power to blackmail individuals.

      “We were quite worried about the Hoover analogies, and we were determined not to have such a disaster happen on our watch,” Baker said, hoping to convey to the incoming president that they did not want to continue the “legacy” of Hoover’s blackmailing.

      Well, that worked out well

      This is a simple addition operation that assumes a consumer must buy each and every product hit by tariffs. It assumes no personal agency that allows consumers to, like, you know, SHOP.

      President Donald Trump is planning on using the Insurrection Act to remove illegal immigrants from the United States, The Daily Caller has learned.

      According to multiple senior administration officials, the president intends to invoke the “tremendous powers” of the act to remove illegal immigrants from the country.

      I notice there’s a big upsurge in attempts to get the ERA passed. Since the deadline passed in 1982, I’m assuming they have to start from scratch. It stalled at 35 states, and I imagine that it will no doubt pass this time.

      There’s some breaking news, something about newly released docs that cover Flynn. I think they’re emails. I don’t know how they got released, e.g., FOIA, etc.

      Anyhoo, the jumping up and down is about

      Flynn co-operated w/Mueller, Trump knew all about it and Flynn implicated Trump in obstruction of justice

      The 1st 2 items are not news, we already knew Mueller interviewed Flynn, Flynn’s lawyers and Trump’s had a joint info sharing agreement…and last but not least – no he didn’t, because if he had it would have been in Mueller’s report and it wasn’t.

      So I have no idea why people are losing their shit about this, as far as I can tell it’s nothing

      Arden the PM of NZ is just there for career enhancing optics on her way to a first ranking globalist career. She has designs to become the first female Secretary General of the UN. Her mentor is Helen Clarke a former NZ Prime Minister and dyed in the wool socialist / communist just like Arden, who was formally the deputy President of World Youth Socialist International. Clarke is pulling Arden strings and lobbying for her at the UN, now that Clarke’s ambitions in that direction are nil. Clarke’s ambitions to be the SG of the UN were stymied because she populated her total staff at the UN with activist lesbians and they shocked even the denizens of the UN.

      @ AZfederalist:
      Arden was plucked from obscurity for the job as NZ PM as the NZ Labour Party were headed for an oblivion electoral result. Even against a do nothing sitting National PM. Even so Arden only got a third of the total vote and had to cobble together a coalition of a hard core left socialist Greens and centre Right NZ First party to drag them over the line. The National Centre Right party still hold mid 40s% of the votes. Nominally Arden’s socialists are in power but the reality is that NZ First centre right party is the ‘king maker’ and no actual socialist legislation gets passed. Arden’s media glamour is beginning to wear thin as her Ministers in government are totally out of their depth and are screwing up ‘giggly’ on a daily basis. Hence her overseas travel and strutting the world stage and away from the realities of governing. She’s just getting ‘all of her ducks in a row’ globally, to go for a high UN job or even the #1 job at the UN herself.

      Could the Brits suck any more?

      A FORMER boss at Britain’s intelligence listening post is on the payroll of a Chinese telecommunications company that has been accused of posing a threat to national security in America.

      Andrew Hopkins, a former deputy director at the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), has been working for Huawei since 2010, The Sunday Times can reveal.

      Hopkins, a former head of engineering and procurement at GCHQ with 40 years of experience in the intelligence world, is based at a centre in Banbury, Oxfordshire, scrutinising the software and hardware deployed in the UK by Huawei.

      Just another Greens ‘place keeper’. She is a List MP (see MMP voting( good luck with that!)). and was #8 on the Green list on election night which means that she missed out. Then subsequently the Greens scraped another 0.5% from ‘preferences’ which gave them their 8th List member…. just! Now Golriz wants a bit more ‘insulation’ between herself and political oblivion so she has a Private Members Bill in the lottery to reduce the percentage ov votes from 5% to 4% for minor parties to be able to elect List (party) members.

      If a party gets under 5% of the vote it needs to have at least one member actually elected to a constituency seat to allow the 5% plus List numbers to ride in on their coat tails. In NZ we get two votes. One for our particular Member of Parliament and a second Party Vote for our favourite party. I’;m sure that that is as clear as mud. Go blame the bloody Germans for the MMP system of mixed member proportional voting.

      Ghahraman is a moderately smart hard-left socialist of mixed Sunni/ Shia parentage but is neo-Marxist secular. She’s been told to sit down the back of Parliament and put her hand up to vote when told by the Greens.

      A non event who will be flushed at the next election and end up in some socialist QANGO getting fat and rich off other peoples’ largess.

      @ eaglesoars:

      I read it too, and I have trouble finding the “there” there. I believe the entirety of Volume II of the Report, on Obstruction of Justice, was from first to last a Weissman project. As such, I have no trouble believing that Weissman mischaracterized certain evidence to indicate that it says something it didn’t. I would like to hear from FLYNN himself what any of this really means.

      @ The Barbarian:

      I will be stunned if Flynn ever talks. The only reason he confessed to a crime he didn’t commit was to protect something and I’m not talking about his kid. Read Strzok’s notes on the mtg and he was bewildered by how talkative Flynn was. Flynn was bait and hook. Unless he no longer needs to protect whatever it is, he shuts up

      And have you noticed – he STILL hasn’t spent one day in jail. Amazing. Keeps getting delayed. Odd.

      Heinz-Christian Strache. July 2017 in Ibiza. With a woman who was supposedly a niece of Russian oligarch Igor Markarova (why is it always the Russians?). She wanted gov’t contracts.

      The elections were the following October, he obviously won. Why/how this is coming out now, I don’t know.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      Markarova is a real person. The woman claiming to be his niece is an impersonator. The media aren’t revealing her identity. If anyone knows who is behind this sting, they aren’t saying. Apparently, it’s not law enforcement.

      Elections to the EU Parliament are coming up, I don’t know if that has something to do with the timing of the publication. I don’t know when the media got this, it most certainly took them time to check it out.

      I’m assuming these animals are insured. If I’m an insurance investigator, I’m starting to consider water boarding some people.

      ugh. This is not good for anybody. China needs to stabilize with some honest numbers, not crash and burn, leaving behind a smoking ruin.

      In the U.S. we watch the stock market. In China, they watch housing/real estate. And one of their biggest developers just announced they’ll be selling their inventory at 10% discount. And their debt load is humongous.

      This is a long article and not fun to read, but it’s very good

      i’ll be buying this book

      ANY automated system has bugs that lurk waiting for the ‘perfect storm’ scenarios. Separately automation failures can be handled. What happens however is that many automated systems sometimes cavalcade failures and to make matters worse automated systems have ‘soft failures’.That’s when a system fails but a reserve system takes its place but TELL NO ONE that something has failed. These soft failures can build up until a total integrated system just ‘gives up’ and the whole system warning board light up all over.

      Most disconcerting!

      Dan Bongino calls this show a ‘capstone’ project. He finds a smoking gun that shows the dems colluded with 2 high ranking Kremlin men who were close to Putin, It’s a little late, and I missed the exact trail.
      He says he’s been leading up to this all week. If you listen starting at 5 minutes, for about half an hour, please explain it to me cuz I can’t think on no sleep.

      Life cannot get more crazy.

      In the last week I have been approached by a company in Pennsylvania to assist them in research into refrigeration related stuff.

      Today I got a call from a well known high street store that among other things sells chicken.

      They want me as a climate controls specialist to over see the installation of 500 new chicken rearing facilities all over the USA.

      Life suddenly got complicated for me in Houston.

      @ Daily Mail
      Somebody named Fran Lebowitz (not to be confused with Fawn Lebowitz of Animal House) on Bill Mather calls for Trump to be turned over to the Saudis to be tortured and killed.
      Look at this woman and you know that she is not living off her looks.

      Mick Jagger just tweeted some new music he’s been working on. Not bad for a guy who just got out of the hospital 2 weeks ago

      Fran Lebowitz is one of those classic NYC niche writers/humorist. And she is incredibly funny. She would never make it outside the city – maybe in Jersey – but not even LA. If you put Fran on Amtrak to Baltimore, she’d be looking for her passport. She doesn’t have one. She’s a solid package of all the stereotypes, good and bad. Think Nora Ephron on crack. (If I have to explain Nora Ephron, we’re done here.)

      Just so you’re prepared. The Left knows this for a certainty and they are just WAITING for justice, but shhhhhhh. William Barr is almost CERTAINLY under investigation for obstruction of justice. He will be taken down along with the rest of Trump’s corrupt cesspool. I mean, he HAS to be, it’s SO obvious.

      The good thing about twitter is that it keeps all the nut cases occupied and off the streets.

      Reading her Will page she strikes me as a head case.

      big time. NYC is her asylum. She’s safe there

      I’m beginning to think polls are tools for manipulation. The Australian election results are in and in what was touted as the ‘climate election’…the climate lost. The polls were wrong again, whodda thunk?

      I saw that. It looks like the Aussie media was
      trying to create the inevitable. Over sample your people.

      “I believe in talking behind people’s backs. That way they hear it more than once”

      Probably my fav Fran quote. Until I remember the next one, anyway. Like a shiv.

      gotta go. the day – it’s doing something

      The Austrian Vice Chancellor, Heinz-Christian Strache has resigned following that expose I posted yesterday. Special elections coming up and his party will get clobbered in the EU elections.

      no one seems to be asking who did this
