Thanks to the anonymous contributor who provided this piece. Very interesting and very plausible considering Russia’s history. Another thanks for nudging me to ordering a book I’ve had on my wish list – “Day of the Oprichnik”. It’s now on my tablet and will start reading it this evening. What started with Peter's post, then Legion's and now this goes to show there's value in studying and learning Russia. Not reacting to fallacious screeching and screed instigated by a sore loser Nov 09, 2016.
Reading Legion’s post and Peter’s before that I must say I’m quite confused. They lay out all the knickers-twisting going on by those on the left about current US and Russo relations. Twisted knickers on those who for so long have been so enamored by the likes of Lenin and Marx along with more contemporary communist despots. But one thing that really baffles me is where’s the mass hysterics over Merkel and Putin? Oh, I forgot. Merkel was reared in the Soviet Bloc’s East Germany. Active member of communist groups. Leopards don’t change their spots but I guess they get a pass.

Not a rain out, Legion. I've got a draft response I need to get back to and post. Been busy warding off apologists and enablers almost immediately attempting to make the USofA responsible for last Sunday's shooting and murders in Toronto. Something about the weapon "likely" coming from the States - now proven false. But that's a story for another day. Back to yours shortly.

My concern with the future of SCOTUS rests in what might happen when Democrats – and whatever form of Democrats might exist under that name – control both houses and the presidency. “When” not if. That will happen because it’s a fact of life the way the political pendulum swings. It’s not far-fetched that Dems will try to resurrect FDR’s 1937 attempt to rewrite law and allow for more associate justices and pack SCOTUS. If that were to happen we’d have our own modern day version of the Third Reich’s “People’s Court” with the likes of Roland Freisler and Madame Defarge releasing the hounds of miscarried justice.

Nice to see Rook’s great short & sweet post. It comes just after I finished reading the indictments of Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris, Boris and Ivan. Conclusion? Yes, it really is possible to indict a ham sandwich. How did those Commie rats do it? Phishing. That email technique that we see and hear so much about. We all encounter it now and then. Need to fill in time on local TV news? Bring in the ACTION! consumer reporter to tell about phishing of an old lady in Glendive, MT who opened an email and clicked on a link promising her a free Lawrence Welk music CD. In turn when she clicked Russian porn video clips appeared on her screen and wouldn’t go away. Ah, but this wasn’t just any phishing scheme – this was “spear phising”. That’s right, spear phising. A sexy new name for an old product. Maybe one of the indicted will turn and come to the States to tell his story. Why not? A free trip and lodging. Appearances on CNN, MSNBC and the View. Hollywood celebrities carrying signs “#BoristrumpsTrump”. Wonder what color ribbon those celebs will wear to the Emmys and Oscars to proclaim solidarity with Boris et al? Now that Mueller and his codependents have wetted their whistles with this hack they can re-open the Clinton email case. And while they're at it they can open a case on Debbie Wasserman Shultz and those Pakistani computer scammers. Just kidding……..
A small example of parallax view suffered by the T.D.S. afflicted:
The left has become anarchists – incipient and outright. Every day a new cause is whipped up. Not just by the day but also by the hour and minute. Now I.C.E. is the enemy and cause célèbre – tyrant to forlorn refugees who have a right to enter this country free of scrutiny and never having to fear deportation. That is in the broken minds of the left who demand elimination of I.C.E. How long did it take for outrage to seethe towards Trump following yesterday’s shooting and murders in Maryland? Meer minutes. Outrage created and spewed by left media pundits and Twitter aficionados suffering from derangement syndrome. Today the outcry is to take up even more and stronger resistance. Outcry from Michael Moore and Hillary Clinton currently being reported. Fortunately Maxine Waters has found a burrow to crawl into while she claims she’s a target of a death threat. It is going to get worse before it gets better. But while law enforcement is busy arresting an affable demonstrator tossing chicken manure in the general direction of a recently notorious restaurant in Lexington, Virginia don’t count on people hiding their faces behind bandannas or Guy Fawkes masks being stopped from doing true bodily harm and property damage.
It's on! #1: #2: The links are safe - their content is unsafe for reasonable people who don't suffer from derangement syndrome......

Krauthammer's words are being validated at this very moment with the radical in person attacks by leftists on those they oppose. These attacks are going to fester into physical violence let alone damage to individuals' property. Today Pelosi claimed she was rebuking Waters' vitriol. At the same time Pelosi blamed Trump for Waters' actions. Right out of the Obama playbook. Have to wonder what it will take to enforce the safety and well-being of those targeted.

Just gets better by the minute up here. A Sunday afternoon press release. Property owner-built "cottages" in backyards to help alleviate addicted bum aka homeless problems. It’s not an affordable housing problem. It’s a bum aka “homeless” problem. Interesting how there are signs posted at parks and beaches here warning against feeding birds because it attracts vermin. Only four-legged vermin aren’t acceptable here. Those with two legs get a pass. Won't be long before it starts looking like the Los Angeles area with all those "granny houses" and converted garages now housing a lot more than grannies.
Disclaimer: I have lived off and on in Seattle and its greater area a total of about thirty years of my “young life”. I’ll likely die in the Puget Sound area. I am a true Native Son of the Golden West being a “Boomer” born and raised in Orange County, CA. I challenge anyone here to have ever had to provide their political affiliation on what amounted to a job application. Anyone, anyone? Took the recruiter over an hour squirming in his seat explaining the “importance” of such a question. That question was eventually legally abolished but not after the chance I had to proudly profess “GOP!!!!!!” in writing. And I was just a kid only shortly able to drink and vote (sequence intended). Like two of my idols Murrow and Pyle reporting from the bombed-out rubble of London I can give a firsthand report from the trenches of Seattle. First of all the newest tax allotted upon Seattle is a Seattle City tax – just that – not a King County tax. Matter of fact the current King County Executive called upon Seattle not to establish the tax. Amazing considering he has a few years before his next rolling in the mud aka run for office. The tax was enacted by fiat by the city council – a group that’s proud of the bronze Lenin statue displayed in the city. The same statue Michelle Malkin still denounces remembering her days as a cub reporter here. Some of you may recall my comments about the political priorities in this town. Long running priorities. A business hall at the state university in the middle of town named after one of socialism’s favorite poster children – Harry Bridges. A town and for that matter a good portion of the western part of the state devoted to worshiping Wobblies still goes on. Ask Milo after his attempted speech at the local state university. Some violent events those bastards caused in Washington and still live in admiration of proud union members who extol doing just what Grandpa and Dad stood for. See why Boeing has left for safer ground? And as far as Boeing et al and the newest tax - Boeing has little of their operation in Seattle anymore. Major assembly here is outside Seattle city limits. Expedia? Still hasn’t moved here from across “The Lake” in the neighboring town of Bellevue. Time will tell. Starbucks? A whore if there ever was one. Got themselves exempted from last year’s Seattle sugary drink tax. Weyerhauser? What a bunch of dumb shits. Moved their HQ from outside into Seattle a couple of years ago. The next shareholders’ meeting should prove interesting. Costco? Only one store in Seattle. HQ is intelligenty outside Seattle. Love watching how the list grows and grows about taxable entities every day. Media makes this all about Amazon. Yes, a $12M tax hit is interesting. However Amazon has, and is, looking at moving “some” operations out of here. Not hard to unplug a computer and plug it in another cubicle in a friendlier area. Have mixed feelings about Amazon. Bezos will pass his costs onto me but love to think about the little giggling bastard having to pay more costs and hopefully divert dollars from The Washington Post. I have seen Detroit and Seattle is becoming what I've seen. So there, I could go on and on. But as a resident and taxpayer in Seattle coughing up more and more in new taxes and levies I must adjourn to another tax sitz bath.
McCain – a log that’s long jammed the swamp drain outlet for quite some time. In his swan song book McCain claims “I agreed to receive a copy of what is now referred to as 'the dossier' ”. Omnipresent news reports at the time from British tabloids – strike that – insert “newspapers” – extolled McCain heard about the screed, became highly aroused and hurriedly dispatched an ally to London to obtain a copy. More like Don Quixote on crystal meth rather than someone agreeing to receive a copy. How this guy who was massaged and inserted into politics by his convicted felon and Mob-connected father-in-law has ever been considered reputable is beyond me.

Guess Stevens still has sour grapes stuck in his craw after his side lost D.C vs Heller ten years ago. Doubt we'll see Heller overturned - at least in this senior's lifetime.
Monday’s Current Events When I was a kid in grammar school I loved “Current Events”. Clipping a newspaper article about something timely, presenting it in front of classmates and reading the snippet. One I recall that had Southern Californians in awe was Florence Chadwick swimming non-stop from the mainland to Catalina Island. Another was hearing on the radio it was National Pickle Day and announcing it to the class. This irritated my teacher who sent a terse note to my mother demanding I cease with absurdity and report actual events. Mama Bear replied accordingly and my curious pursuit of truth and relaying it was not stifled. So my current event for the day is about the stock market. Indices closed up today – way up from that big hit they took this past Friday. The drops obviously had to do with the budget, trade wars and all the other significant compelling factors that affect economies. But I see today there’s a chart floating around that tracks last week’s drops and today’s hefty rise along with what caused those events. Concern over the budget? No. Trade wars? No. Axis of Evil? No. It’s the Stormy Daniels Crisis. The world and finances stood at a precipice Friday in anticipation of what this North Hollywood* star might say. Sunday she said it. Monday market recuperation. What a world we live in. * Home to our nation’s porn industry.

It quickly became tedious trying to watch Trump explain his signing the other day. “It’s for the military” just doesn’t cut it. Listening to that repeatedly is like listening to “It’s for the kids”. Perhaps he has something up his sleeve in doing what he did. If not the Dems will use their gains last week to promote a free lunch agenda for the upcoming elections. And that agenda will be very effective for them.

McCabe is not, at this time, losing his pension. That’s a myth hatched and nurtured by the media. As it stands now having been fired forty-eight hours before his retirement eligibility – his fiftieth birthday March 18 – he is in a deferred annuity status. That means he isn’t eligible to draw his pension until March 18, 2025 – the date he turns fifty-seven and would be mandatorily retired from federal law enforcement. Unless he is able to overcome the firing he’ll lose seven years of retirement income and not be able for federal health benefits or life insurance during that time. He can and I predict will file an appeal with the Merit System Protection Board (Board). Watch for that appeal to be hand carried to the WA, DC Board office as soon as this coming Monday. The Board will review his case and there may or may not be a hearing. If the Board rules in his favor he will be able to retire effective March 18, 2018 and entitled to retroactive benefits back to that date. If the Board rules against him then he has one other option – Federal court. He can’t take his case to court until after filing and being denied his appeal by the Board. He can only lose his pension if he is charged and convicted of certain specific federal crimes. The two primary crimes affecting this are treason and espionage. There are a few other crimes that come into play with what we may or may not now know about McCabe. Those crimes include “leaking”. Where McCabe stands to take a big financial hit is that he is now tainted goods. Career professionals like him very often walk into high six or even seven figure jobs with the likes of Kroll, major corporations or think tanks/lobbyists. McCabe’s soiled resume puts the kibosh on that.

Hell, read it again. My grammar was correct the first time. Time to quit worrying about grammar and stick to facts. I'd love to debate anyone, anywhere about anonymous tips and leads received by law enforcment. That is only if anyone who wants to debate can match or exceed my proud and productive thirty years behind a gold shield. When I smell a decaying rat in law enforcement I can sniff out a big stink......
Theirs not "there's". Also gives me a chance to add that an investigation of Broward's 911 records - including but not limited to Cruz - should be a part of investigation of the S.O. Not calls selected and disseminated by the media.
Broward County uses Enhanced 911 so there's no such thing as an anonymous call there.
Hot off the press 12 Feb 2008: "Laura Ingraham said New York's junior senator is 'weaponizing' the #MeToo movement in order to swing more female votes to her and the Democrats........ Gillibrand has fully weaponized the #MeToo hashtag movement... with the intention of driving the female vote in the midterms..." Still stand by my 13 Jan guarantee that Dems will use #MeToo in 2018. It'll be like kamikaze attacks against our fleet in WWII.
