I was wondering when anti-fa, MoveOn, ANSWER, et.al. would come out of hiding to ignite the UAC wars. Do they not know that ICE agents are armed and they can use deadly force to protect themselves, their families and their homes? Of course, they are mainly keyboard cowards and masked failures. If a shooting war starts they lose.

Man Tran, Many kudos for posting that story of the Midnight Express buffer. I remember her. She was out of Castle AFB and with the 93 Bomb Wing. I can't remember if she was with the 328th or 329th Squadron but I do know they saw service out of U-Tapao in Thailand. I was at Anderson in Guam earlier. sbw's hometown has one on static display at ex-Rome AFB. Another is on static display at Orlando International, ex-Pine Castel, ex-McCoy Field. That is why OIA designaiton is MCO.

Your know what is bullshit? Reading a long multi-page thread and then finding out that you have to sign in again and start over. I am a paid member of Typepad and I am going to cancel my subscription and let them know why. Total ridiculous nonsence. In the meantime it is still us against them regardless of the IG testimony and the GOP rebuttals. The Dems are protecting the Swamp and their legacy. The only thing that will satisfy the results is an all out civil war. Nothing will change as a result of the IG report and future reports. OL can rest assured his real estate will not take a hit. The Swamp will survive and even Trump can do nothing about it no matter how much he tries. If I was OL, I would raise the rents.

Next is a case of Beefeaters since I thought you like DoT was a vodka guy:) What a difference a week makes here now that the Open is over. Will take over a month to clear the course of the buidings, tents, stands etc. And 2 years for it to recover. Knowing it is mostly corporate versus local members clears up the course for us riff-raff to get back on and play it like Brooks Koepka did:)

Just watched the Gowdy Q&A. I know he has a mixed reputation here but he made a mockery of the IG report and as I have said, if you believe Horowitz is being unbiased and honest and not propping up a sinking Swamp then you need to invest in monkey shit. He is over doing the fairness, nothing here but misunderstandings, move on spirit of saving the establishment. Gowdy isn't. At the end of the day, the ledge will collapse from the weight of its adherents and coop members. The only thing that will make the fall soft is the quantity of Grey Goose and bubbly OL has on hand for that day:)

RG, I thought I may that clear that the IG is an internal audit unit but doesn't act like an IA in a corporation. Evidently, you missed that part of my comment. We had a serious criminal ativity of kickbacks, bribes, fraudelent billings on a major nuclear plant back in the early 70's. Our IA was contacted by our GM who had been contacted by a concerned employee. IA came in with our outside law firm, investigated, recommended serial dismissals and referred the whole matter to the US Attorney where the criminals (senior people on the project) were tried, convicted and jailed. So, you think that is going to happen here? Your optimism is not as contagious among the GOP congressmen I heard in their questioning of the IG today. YMMV

Jane, In my old firm and I think in other businesses, the IG is the same as Internal Audit. The major difference here is if IA finds an employee violating company policy (and we have a number of major criminal activity uncovered) that employee is frog-marched out the door without even his personal effects. But not in Big Government where the object of any DC IG is to protect the Swamp and that is what the Trump America crowd will think.

Trotz has a 2 year extension in his contrat if he wins the Stanley Cup. However they are only for $300K per year. That would bump him up to only $1.8million a year which he can improve on in the open market. Wouldn't be surprised one of the legacy teams who needs a boot in the ass will pick him up.

True GUS at 2:27 but he also has to put up with the Dems constant changing the subject to Russian collusion, which the report doesn't even consider. Hakeem Meeks of Brooklyn was the worst offender but Horowitz handled it well. Why Jordan didn't invoke parlimentary objection like Barbara Lee did is beyond me.

Catching up while watching the OIG hearing and Mrs. JiB and I just got over a belly ache laughing so hard at the Dem haridans Maloney, Holmes and Lee trying to spin his report into Russian collusion. If I was Gowdy I would Jordan and Massie use all the available time to do the questioning. CH, One of the schools we will visit this Saturday is St. Thomas More School in Oakdale, CT. Evidently, it is a powerhouse BB school. Andre Drummond is one of the grads and 2 recent grads were on Villanova's national championship team. Their coach is a Naismith HOF'er with 1K victories and only 277 losses. Have you heard of it?

Your Latin Phrase of the Day: Non scholae sed vitae discimus. Words to live by. On another note, Perry Gershon is the full commie (as GUS would say) and is running in the Dem primary to face Lee Zeldin the First District of New York Congressman. I just saw one of his signs on Meadow Lane (Billionaire's Row) in front of a $45 million beach mansion owned by a guy named Loeb. It never ceases to amaze me why very wealthy people think the Dems are in their corner. But then I wake up and realize that is how we end up with Dems.

If I was Trump, I would double down and make Congress do their responsibility. They created the mess and to say enforcing the law is inhumane tells you a lot how the left, their media accomplices and even our Congress thinks. Let Trump take the heat for our discretion. Bullshit in spades.

After watching the presser with Nielsen, I am more convinced than ever that the press have an agenda and it is not to ask serious questions and reveal the results of a policy. Those were leading questions, no serious question. They were leading to a certain political philoshophy. Why did these questions come up in 2014 to 2016 in the Obama administration? Because he was their fave. In fact, I cannot think of any challenging questions from the press regarding any policy position during his administration. God forbid we are racists for just asking a fucking question. My faith in America's press at the national level is at an all time low. I only wish they were more pragmatic and interested in detail like the Rome paper. BTW, Kirsten Nielsen is one tough customer and none of her interrogetors are anyway near her equal. Bravo Zulu on a job well done.

Jane asked me about Phil hitting the moving ball on No. 13 yesterday and I posted my answer accidently on that thread, so here it is:) "Jane, I know that hole position on 13. If Phil had not stopped that putt, it would have rolled down into the closely mown area but would also take a strong left hand turn to end up behind the front right bunker. That would have mean't Phil would have to hit a flop shot over the bunker and leave it below the hole. Even for a magician like Phil it would have been a 100-1 shot and if pulled it off would most likely be above the hole and further away. Then he would have a more difficult putt. It took him 5 more holes to come up the excuse he used. John Daly was DQ for a similar action but Phil is a marquee player and no way was the USGA going to disappoint the rowdy but Phil loving New York fans. It may have been different if Tiger was still playing because at least they would have him shore up the crowds."

GUS, We are having a Belgium watching party. Mrs. JiB, Frederick, the Beagles and me:) 3-0. Lukaku has 2 of them but Dries Mertens rocket volley into the top left corner was a beauty. Hazard and DeBruyne controlling the field. Now Hazard's younger brother is coming on.

Davod, Thanks for that 11:34 on the Fitzgerald. I sent that on to my USNA friends who have very critical of the both the Academy political correctness and the surface warfare training or lack of it. That is an eye-opener and if Mattis doesn't resolve this nonsense of training our sailors and airman he loses main ground support.

Well, at least Concord Management's counsel has a sense of humor using Dithyramb which celebrates Dionysus, the Greek God of wine & fertility.

Somebody, Mueller or Sessions or Huber, are over the target if Clapper is asking for it to wrap up. Taking Elliott to the Jitney for his exit to LaGuardia.

Off to bed. Early day tomorrow for the final round. Harry is joining my Father's Day tribute with Frederick, E, Elliott and I. Should be a fun day as long as we keep hydrated. How we do that is everyone's personal responsibility. Cheers. Slaap lekker, tot morgen

GUS, Yes, I am proud of our golf heritage here. Shinnecock, National, Southampton, and Sebonack. Then you go east to Maidstone. All great and historic except Sebonack but it has had a Ladies US Open. We love having everyone here to enjoy our courses, and hospitality. I think, so far, we are doing good job. The restaurants are busy and lots of foot traffic on Job's Lane and Main Street window shopping and cashing in their AMEX cards. Tomorrow is going to be a very exciting day with 4 guys tied at the top and each one is a strong player (physically) which you have to be to take on the fescue rough.

So, Elliott, Mrs. JiB and I decide to watch the last 6 holes while having dinner at Le Charlot, sitting at the bar by the big screen TV. And every thing I predicted came true. You don't move up on Saturday at Shinnecock with that wind and the greens getting dry and tight, you move down, down, down. So two guys who finished 2+ hours ahead of the leading groups teeing off are now in the lead and will tee off first tomorrow. Think about that and whether it has ever happened in a golf major before. I don't think so but anyone who wants to research it can do so and counter my opinion. If you want a preview of tomorrow, read Dick Schapp's "Massacre at Winged Foot" which took place in 1974. I see a "Slaughtering at Shinnecock" tomorrow. If we get a high tide again around 5:00pm then the winds will pick up and the scores will soar. Yet the course is not playing any different for the members and guests who play it every day but Joe Suck wants the course to be more fair for the other pampered millionaires. Go figure.

tonto, Will also send an email. But should be no problem coming into Southampton for the shuttle at Lake Agawam. He can park in the south lot behind the Publick House and our old store, if there is room. If not he can park behind the the old Parrish Museum. Why not just park in Bridghampton and take the bus in? Of he can come to our place and he, I, E, Elliott and Frederick can all go to Agawan together.

CH, Don't get me going on Joe Suck as a golf commentator. Bad enough to have ruined baseball for me but the guy has no idea on the game of golf. But see what I mean about moving day at Shinnecock. Moving down not up:)
