Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. I haven’t been officially diagnosed yet but in the event it is BPPV (you will have to google the term) I have been going to physical therapy to try and get the inner ear crystals back in place. My appointment with a neurologist isn’t until early November and after that I have a follow up with the ENT. What could be exacerbating the problem is I have Sjogren’s Syndrome and that can cause a lot of problems since it affects the flow of fluids in the body.

While I am here I have to share this new Progressive solution to saving the planet from human-caused climate change. We have to start eating babies!

I saw on Twitter the misinformation/spin/nothingburger from Sundance and Gatewaypundit about Rosenstein’s emails so figured I would pop in for a bit. I didn’t read all 145 pages but the few that Sundance and Hoft are foolishly making a big deal about are rather insignificant. We discussed here countless times that RR and Mueller had to have communicated with each other prior to the meeting with Trump. Now that has been confirmed. I’m guessing the “boss” RR is referring to is Sessions and since Sessions was recused that is probably why RR initiated communications with Mueller without notifying Sessions. Not really seeing anything of substance in the emails that paint RR in a negative light. Still dealing with vertigo. It’s gotten a little better in that after 4 weeks of constant headaches I only get them now when I am in the car. Hope everyone has been doing well while I have been gone.

The Epoch Times responds to NBC.

My guess is the ChiComms ordered NBC News and/or the Democrats to do whatever it takes to discredit The Epoch Times and Falun Gong.

This 5 minute video will brighten up you day. Feeling a little better now. The vertigo comes and goes now versus being nonstop for over a week.

Hope everyone is doing well. I've been dealing with major vertigo for a week now. Hard to keep up with the goings on at JOM when the words move around on the screen. I imagine the discussion about Epstein has been interesting. Hopefully this will clear up soon. Doctor gave me Valium to take until I can go see an ENT doc. Not certain why he prescribed that drug but it definitely is making me feel mellow.
I think you're right mainly because the bell curve of people aspiring to work for the feds has some overlap here but not much. If someone consider themselves a patriot and Constitutional rule of law kind of person, wouldn't a career in the FBI as a law enforcement officer be an honorable profession that pays a lot better than being a local policeman or state trooper? I'm good friends with a local policeman and I was dumbfounded by how low his annual salary was. FBI agents make double to triple what he makes.

TK @ 3:01 Same answer as last time. Since the Mueller SC is officially over and Mueller has completely destroyed the Democrat's false allegations against Trump, there is no risk to discussing what actually happened. After 2+ years of promoting Mueller as the super hero who would bring Trump down, if the Democrats now start trying to convince people Mueller was working with Trump all along then that just makes them look more foolish. This in turn will alienate more moderate/independent voters and push them towards Trump in 2020. BTW nice attempt to put me on the defensive again by accusing me of bragging. Your tactics are easy to spot.

TK @ 2:33 Your attempts to put me on the defensive when you know I am presenting facts warranted the insulting tone directed strictly at you. Therefore, your conclusion can be equally applied to Trump. No shit Sherlock. I've been saying Trump relies on strategic deception for months here. Trump has been promoting the strategic deception Mueller wanted to be FBI Director again and formally applied for the job. Trump sent out countless number of tweets accusing Mueller of being on a witch hunt. Welcome to the world of strategic deception/kabuki. The truth doesn't matter in the court of public opinion. In the court of public opinion what matters the most is what people perceive to be the truth. Knowing that half the country was deceived by Democrats and the leftwing into believing Trump was a traitor who colluded with the Russian government to steal the election, perhaps you will now acknowledge the possibility Trump engaged in deception/subterfuge to indirectly prove to the nation those allegations against him were false?

TK @ 2:17 Does your concept of what constitutes rational logic cause you conclude that since Trump retweeted the link to Gohmert’s oped that all the lies and misinformation in Gohmert's oped somehow automagically become The Truth? That sure seems to be the case.

TK @ 1:58 My "secret motive" was your attempt to evade answering a question so you tried putting me on the defensive by asking me what my motive for posting here was. I do give you credit for your creative writing skills. It takes a lot of creativity on your part to evade the facts and avoid admitting your perceptions were incorrect and instead attempt to put the person who revealed those facts on the defensive. I fully acknowledge your popularity here helps you convince others to side with you version of The Truth over me. Pat yourself on the back for helping perpetuate the lies and misinformation that Gohmert and other pundits are spreading.

CH @ 1:45 How about I give you the red pill and you offer it to TK since he can't publicly accept it from me?

Flipping the FISA is your pipe dream TomR not ours. Maryrose, Thank you for reinforcing the point I have been making.
Henry, Buckeye and anyone else who thought Mueller was a corrupt dirty cop: If you accept the possibility (or you outright admit you got duped) that your perceptions about Mueller may have been improperly negatively influenced by misinformation and lies, then extend that to Rosenstein and reread my 12:13. The same pundits pushing the narrative Mueller is a corrupt dirty cop say Rosenstein is corrupt too. Are you willing to admit to the possibility Rosenstein reauthorized the Page FISA warrant because Team Trump was engaged in a reverse sting operation to spy on Halper and other members of the Obama criminal cabal in order to collect evidence to indict them for illegally spying on the Trump campaign? For all those on the Ledge who are pessimistic that anyone in the Obama admin is going to get punished for their crimes, Rosenstein flipping the Page FISA warrant against Halper is a gamechanger don't you think?
Henry @ 12:16 Yes I am well aware that the people who were the most vocal about Mueller being a corrupt dirty cop tend to be the same people now saying nobody cares that Mueller may not be as bad as they previously perceived. When you view everything that happened during the Mueller SC investigation thru the prism that Mueller is not the corrupt dirty cop you thought he was, then its possible to come to a different conclusion than what the politicians and pundits wanted you to believe.
Buckeye @ 12:07 But at the end of the day, who gives a shit? The people who give a shit about the real facts surrounding Spygate are the people who know the outcome of Spygate will be an inflection point in US history.
From the Sundance article linked earlier: According to Bartiromo those transcripts include FBI wire-taps of Halper attempting to get Papadopolous to accept assistance from Russia (delivering Clinton emails) Since Halper is a US citizen a wiretap for CounterIntel reasons requires a FISA warrant. We already know the Obama administration approved a FISA warrant against Carter Page. We also already know that the two-hop rule that applies to FISA warrants allowed the Obama administration to not only spy on Page, but to also spy on everyone Page communicated with AND everyone those people communicated with. Now, knowing that the FBI had wire taps of Halper, there are two options to choose from. Either the FBI got a fresh, new FISA warrant against Halper OR they renewed the existing Page FISA warrant that had already gotten approved but they flipped flopped the direction. Instead of using the Page FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign, the FBI used the Page FISA warrant to spy on Halper and everyone in the Obama administration that Halper communicated with during Spygate.
RG, Just so you know in your absence here at JOM CH has been one of the most open minded posters here when it comes to everything Trump has been doing to drain the Swamp. AFAIK he and I are the only two people here who believe Rosenstein is a good guy who was always on Team Trump from the very start. For the past week I've been debunking an oped by Louie Gohmert full of lies and misinformation about Mueller's past history. I've been focusing on the details surrounding the Whitey Bulger case. In a nutshell, pretty much everything Trump supporters were duped into believing (by politicians and pundits) to be true when it comes to Mueller and Whitey Bulger is not true at all. A couple of key people (Iggy and Clarice) have admitted my points debunking Gohmert are valid so I am happy with the progress. Hope you stick around more and RTR.
Rocco @ 5:52 Why should I give up the search for truth? You linked to another article by a pundit who is intentionally omitting key facts and trying to deceive you. That pundit is doing what most pundits do and basing his points on an oped by a different pundit who is also intentionally omitting key facts and trying to deceive you. For more than three decades, the FBI, citing “national security” concerns, refused to release the exculpatory evidence. Finally, it was released in 2000 as part of an investigation at the time into FBI corruption in the Boston office In other words, in 2000 a year before Mueller became FBI Director the FBI gave all the exculpatory evidence to defense lawyers. Can anyone name anything that happened in the Deegan murder case or Bulger's entire criminal history that would give anyone a legit reason to accuse Mueller of being a corrupt dirty cop, which BTW were the first two words in the oped Rocco linked. Lastly, the part you quoted is that pundit's attempt to twist what Mueller said out of context. Here is a quote from Mueller: “This does not necessarily mean, however, that Limone or any of the other defendants is innocent – it merely means that they are entitled to a new trial.” There are obviously comments from Mueller before and after that quote so no one here knows what the full context is. All we can do is speculate. The four gangsters framed for murder were bad guys. They were innocent of the murder they got framed for but overall they were mobsters. Also, they were convicted of state crimes by the state of Massachusetts, not the DOJ. The exculpatory evidence turned over by the FBI entitled the framed mobsters to a new trial in the state of Massachusetts to formally establish their innocence via acquittal or possibly a judge throwing out the original conviction. Someone who is a lawyer can confirm if that is the correct process for how the rule of law is supposed to work.
CH @ 10:40 For starters, all the tweets that claimed Mueller wanted to be FBI Director again and formally interviewed for the job. Do you distinguish between subterfuge and deception whose purpose is to defeat the enemy and the traditional definition of "lying". I certainly do. Absolutely nothing wrong with the former while the latter is unethical.
Momto2 @ 10:31 I think Scarborough's insane behavior towards Trump is because he is scared shitless that Trump could somehow expose the skeletons in his closet.
CH @ 7:26 To be clear, unlike the NTs I'm claiming he hasn't lied Can you clarify your point? I always thought you were one of the people here who understood Trump routinely engages in deception, kabuki, or whatever term you want to call it. I distinguish between that kind of subterfuge and the traditional definition of "lying". Two different things.
RG @ 10:37 By the way, where's my guy Tom R. ??? Y'all haven't roughed him up, have you? Haha I'm still fighting the fight to uncover the truth. Slowly but surely some people are starting to come around. After the debacle of the last week for the Red Sox college football can't get here soon enough. Barring injury to Tua the Tide should be right where they expect to be. This year's team should be the most prolific offense in Bama history and should light up the scoreboard.
Matt, Sorry to hear about your family issues. Hope things work out the best for you.
