Thanks, rich :-) The fuss the lefties are making about the census question really got me riled. They never said boo about BHO's control trying to move it into the WH's orbit. JMH's article on her blog has great links I'm going through. It is not to be missed.

Hey Man Tran, have you heard of this massive landfill in my neck of the woods? Some of the trains you mentioned earlier may be hauling their garbage to this location. It's in a very dry part of the Gorge. Wheat farmers in that area tend to slowly starve to death. Ask me how I know.. ;-)

From the 'way back machine.. And since it's behind the paywall I'm including the whole thing. Why Obama Wants Control of the Census By John Fund Updated Feb. 10, 2009 11:59 pm ET President Obama said in his inaugural address that he planned to "restore science to its rightful place" in government. That's a worthy goal. But statisticians at the Commerce Department didn't think it would mean having the director of next year's Census report directly to the White House rather than to the Commerce secretary, as is customary. "There's only one reason to have that high level of White House involvement," a career professional at the Census Bureau tells me. "And it's called politics, not science." The decision was made last week after California Rep. Barbara Lee, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Hispanic groups complained to the White House that Judd Gregg, the Republican senator from New Hampshire slated to head Commerce, couldn't be trusted to conduct a complete Census. The National Association of Latino Officials said it had "serious questions about his willingness to ensure that the 2010 Census produces the most accurate possible count." Anything that threatens the integrity of the Census has profound implications. Not only is it the basis for congressional redistricting, it provides the raw data by which government spending is allocated on everything from roads to schools. The Bureau of Labor Statistics also uses the Census to prepare the economic data that so much of business relies upon. "If the original numbers aren't as hard as possible, the uses they're put to get fuzzier and fuzzier," says Bruce Chapman, who was director of the Census in the 1980s. Mr. Chapman worries about a revival of the effort led by minority groups after the 2000 Census to adjust the totals for states and cities using statistical sampling and computer models. In 1999, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in Department of Commerce v. U.S. House that sampling could not be used to reapportion congressional seats. But it left open the possibility that sampling could be used to redraw political boundaries within the states. Such a move would prove controversial. "Sampling potentially has the kind of margin of error an opinion poll has and the same subjectivity a voter-intent standard in a recount has," says Mr. Chapman. Starting in 2000, the Census Bureau conducted three years of studies with the help of many outside statistical experts. According to then Census director Louis Kincannon, the Bureau concluded that "adjustment based on sampling didn't produce improved figures" and could damage Census credibility. The reason? In theory, statisticians can identify general numbers of people missed in a head count. But it cannot then place those abstract "missing people" into specific neighborhoods, let alone blocks. And anyone could go door to door and find out such people don't exist. There can be other anomalies. "The adjusted numbers told us the head count had overcounted the number of Indians on reservations," Mr. Kincannon told me. "That made no sense." The problem of counting minorities and the homeless has long been known. Census Bureau statisticians believe that a vigorous hard count, supplemented by adding in the names of actual people missed by head counters but still found in public records, is likely to lead to a far more defensible count than sampling-based adjustment. The larger debate prompted seven former Census directors -- serving every president from Nixon to George W. Bush -- to sign a letter last year supporting a bill to turn the Census Bureau into an independent agency after the 2010 Census. "It is vitally important that the American public have confidence that the census results have been produced by an independent, non-partisan, apolitical, and scientific Census Bureau," it read. The directors also noted that "each of us experienced times when we could have made much more timely and thorough responses to Congressional requests and oversight if we had dealt directly with Congress." The bill's chief sponsor is New York Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who represents Manhattan's Upper East Side. "The real issue is who directs the Census, the pros or the pols," says Mr. Chapman. "You would think an administration that's thumping its chest about respecting science would show a little respect for scientists in the statistical field." He worries that a Census director reporting to a hyperpartisan such as White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel increases the chances of a presidential order that would override the consensus of statisticians. The Obama administration is downplaying how closely the White House will oversee the Census Bureau. But Press Secretary Robert Gibbs insists there is "historical precedent" for the Census director to be "working closely with the White House." It would be nice to know what Sen. Gregg thinks about all this, but he's refusing comment. And that, says Mr. Chapman, the former Census director, is damaging his credibility. "He will look neutered with oversight of the most important function of his department over the next two years shipped over to the West Wing," he says. "If I were him, I wouldn't take the job unless I had that changed." Just thought some might be interested in this article. Apologies for the length.

From the last thread.. Thank you, thank you for the birthday wishes. Very kind of you to remember me. I should have my head examined for starting a one man band business that's controlling a big chunk of my time some years ago. But with my better half not in the best of health (we cannot travel any more) I can go out to the jobs at various times and then finish the photos when I get home and look after him. Try to keep up with JOM as best I can and wish lots of love to all of you. You all are just the best!! :-)
Left a thanks to Extraneus on the last dead thread :-) I think you nailed it. General Flyn was 'way to trusting of those FBI #bozos. But agree it was Weissman who was carrying out higher ups orders and who directly tore down Manafort.

Captain H, that book really confirmed in my mind your black robed tyrants phrase. Have been recommending it to many people on twitter. And when Sharyl Atkinson lost her case on the intrusion of her computer she asked her followers if she should appeal the decision.I recommended her to read Powell's book and then decide :-)

Tom R @ 12:42am If anyone else has some other legit possibilities to explain what happened let me know. I'm sticking with what I said earlier. Since the original position on Mueller of the Ledge dwellers has been completely refuted, that moves the needle in the direction towards my position. We won't know for certain who is correct until all the facts come out and the indictments start flowing. My guess is the floodgates are about to open. I finished reading Sidney Powell's book "License to Lie" about the same time as Captain Hate and I really suggest you read that fine book. There is no way Mueller is the 'white hat' as you describe/believe. Anyone who has Weissman on the SC team as Mueller had cannot be unbiased. Read the book. It explains just how horrible this man Weissman is and the damage he and others like him have done to our legal system.

Pagar's daughter Kalena asked me to post this message from Pagar. We kept in touch via Facebook: "Dear JOM friends, My Dad Pagar wanted me to make a final post for him letting you know that Pagar has checked out. Here is a group of posts I made as I found out what was happening. Late Sunday night 3-3-2019 I got a call from Panama a little bit ago. Dad's neighbor letting me know Dad is in ICU with a massive stroke. His blood pressure still about 215/195. Brain still bleeding. They intubated him, he has not woken since the stroke. They told my step mom it doesn't look good. I don't know any more yet. Tuesday morning Dad still shows no sign of consciousness, his pupils do not retract, no reaction to pin prick. It's a national holiday in Panama, Fat Tuesday, then tomorrow is Ash Wednesday so there won't be any decisions made until Thursday. It seems absurd but it's how it is. I know Dad would not want to be on life support so short of a miracle (which I would rejoice in) Dad is dying. Update: Wednesday 3-6-2019 about 3:30 am Dad passed quietly on his own early Wednesday morning. No pain, no awareness that we know of. He's no longer tied to his earthly troubles. Save us a place Dad. I think in this way Dad softened the blow a little because when I first got the call there seemed to be hope but at the same time I had to face the possibility that it could be near the end for him. As the hours went by it became more likely the end was very near. Dad chose to let go on his own, sparing my stepmom and my brother and I from having to decide to take him off the breathing machine. It's hard, very hard but this seemed to be a very gentle way for him to leave this earth to go to his heavenly reward. Heaven gained a good man today. Dad has an awesome neighbor that he asked to help if this ever occurred. Dalton has called at every point of change. He is an expat from the U.S. too. He has described every detail the best he can to give a me an idea of what is happening. I would be clueless without his help and the language barrier. He held his cell to Dad's ear for me. I told him I loved him. I know how tired he must be. I told him if he wanted to come back we'd be there. But if he was too tired it was ok to let go. That Teresa (my step mom) and I would be ok. He knows my brother would be ok too. My dad has always supported me and I don't ever remember him being cross with me except once last year over politics. We usually knew well enough to leave that subject alone. I asked him if he was still upset the next day. He said no, let's just not talk about politics again. My childhood had a lot of pain but dad was always a good part, a hero who came home from Vietnam twice, who served his country even after he retired from the USAF and made sure that when he moved to Panama that his fellow ExPats had a Christian service worthy of their service to our country. He will always be my hero. Pagar has checked out. written by his daughter Kalena" I didn't change one word but I may have capitalized one letter. Something from the heart should not be altered. It's been a pretty tough week my JOM friends. Very grateful for all of you.

OT: Some interesting fodder for Clarice and all if you have not already seen. I dug down in a Sidney Powell tweet and found this thread from Epoch Times: TrishaAnderson–once No. 2 lawyer at @FBI’s Office of General Counsel–was involved in all significant events of the Trump campaign counterintelligence investigation. This is about who was signing off on the FISA warrants.
