BTW - while my fingers are unconstrained by any ongoing investigations (acknowledged or under seal), I used the "Contact The Whitehouse" form yesterday to recommend 1. Coates be fired 2. Admiral Mike Rogers be hired as DCI & 3. To express continued appreciation etc & etc I know such notes probably going to a spam folder somewhere, but I felt better having done so. MAGA

I'm still in the camp that sez AG Barr is a high-quality draft choice by DJT. Regarding the Horowitz & Huber reports, DeGenova said one day last week, just after DJT grated Mr Barr declassification authority, that the reason why, was because Wray, Coates, and to a lesser degree, Haspell, were all stonewalling any release of information. Huber's report, if released now, would be quickly overtaken by Barr's declassification, which will begin soon. DeGenova said that Barr asked 45 for the authority to declassify, saying without such authority, he would not be able to get the information, and the Huber & Horowicz reports would be very incomplete. Now, what do I know? I can only, for the most part, trust the comments of those I have learned to trust, based upon their history of credible reporting. In this case I trust DeGinova, and hence, I find and accept his explanation as plausible. Until such time I learn that DeGinova is a swamper (and I don't think he is), I will accept what he says. DiGinova said to expect Huber's/Horowict's reports in about a month, which to my imperfect calculus is about the middle, end of June. Barr has not yet disappointed me. I thought his handling of the SC report was well done. What Mueller did yesterday, when you add it all up, at the end of the day, it must be said, was not a whole helluva lot. House dems are jumping up and down. What's new?

MiH - Great vid ! I've got a lot of time for little dogs with character, joie de vivre. Back when we had our Airedales, we inherited a Border Terrier from a retiree who said one time after we had watched her pooch for several weekends, "Molly loves being with you more than with me, would you please keep her?" Molly was an over-fed 20 pounds, but playing with the big dales soon dropped down to just 15 pounds--found her inner dog. Molly'd get into fights with our big female, Grace, had to have staples over her scalp, having pulled on supergurl's cape once too often. The thing is, little dogs with brio never see themselves as anything but the same as the big dogs--at least that is what I think. Thus, playing with the big dogs brings out the fullness of the smaller. As well, the big dog will be, in my experience, a bit more considerate, less rambunctious. Are you still in Houston? How's the rain? Got water?
Cheers ! JiB, regarding the fawn, we had one here last year, I almost tripped on it walking with Jack one day. Left it alone and momma came back later in the day. Regarding the deer eating all your rhododendrons, JiB, an English Shepherd or two would TCO that which is apparently beyond the beagles ability (I keed, I keed.) Miss Marple, I had forgotten your mentioning Maggie. You, Robin (IIRC) and we have ESs. We could form our own ES Society. Speaking of which, there's a group on FB called the The English Shepherd Society which can be a lot of fun. BTW - Jack and Hitch came from Shininger English Shepherds (http://www.jvshiningerfarms.com also on fb) not too far from you in Greenfield, IN Jay Shininger is a second generation breeder, beginning with his dad in 1950; they have strong, well thought-out lines and, well, you don't have to take my word for it, but I would say excellent pups too! Thanks for the heads up regarding the wily coyotes, Ig. When we're walking off lead in the surrounding fields, any predator in the vic is a threat and will be run off. With two ES now, I am much more confident. These guys, Jack & Hitch, never even consider the threat to themselves, it is all about protecting us. They run to the sound of the guns, literally. A couple nights ago, we were outside in the fenced-in area around The Farmhouse, and someone was shooting in the distance. Hitch ran to the fence and started barking toward the sound of the 'threat.' This is similar to a week or two ago when, with the grandson outside crawling on a blanket, again inside the fenced area, Hitch saw a buzzard overhead and started barking and chasing it toward the fence. Jack jumped up on the picnic table near where we were to provide the close-in defense as may have been required. We understand the motivation of English Shepherds varies from Border Collies and Australian Sheps in this manner: The Aussie or Border says: "You will do what I say because I am the Boss of you and I'll kick your butt if you do not listen." They are "prey-driven." The ES says: "You will do what I say because you are part of my pack and I need to protect you." They are pack-driven. Different motivation, making the ES the wonderful, protective partners that they are. Mike in Houston--> thanks very much for Frost's Drumlin Woodchuck. Actually, local geologists say we live at a drumlin, its contours have been smoothed since 1858 when construction was started on The Farmhouse (all stone walls, ~20" thick). The drumlin today has the appearance of a long berm, approximately 200 yards long. A few new rocks come out every year. We have a lot of pudding stones here too. I think back when they started building the main building, there were a lot of stones still on top of the ground.
Jane - With English Shepherds around, pups like Kiwi are protected from the coyotes and other varmints. Only a couple months ago Jack ran off a coyote without a moment's hesitation. These guys run toward any threat. And yet, the gentlest around the weakest among us. ~~ Here are the brothers relaxing a few days ago:
We had a bit of excitement at The Farmhouse earlier today. Even though off-topic, you might say a certain "mastery" was achieved when all was said and done. We used to have Airedales--and loved them greatly. After our last died in early 2012, we took a break from doggies for awhile. When the time was right two years ago, we decided to close the 20+ year chapter with the 'dales, going with a regional, the English Shepherd. ~~ Jack (22 months old) and younger brother,Hitch (10 months, same dame & sire, subsequent litters), teamed together this morning to rid the property of a groundhog. Last year, Jack by himself had gone after a gh; I thought he might be a bit too young and fortunately was able to drag him away--not without a lot of effort and a bit of luck. Today, the groundhog in question was standing up straight, much as you might see a prairie dog, about a hundred yards away from us. I was out walking with Mrs Daze, with the grandson in our arms. Both Jack & Hitch are very protective. Hitch particularly likes to chase away the buzzards. I knew as soon as Jack would see the gh, he'd be after it--and boy, was he ever. This was Hitch's first experience; he let his older brother take the lead, but soon was all-in. First Jack, and then together, they cornered the gh in the middle of a field. Then with constant circling, and barking, and jumping in close and then back out again, they wore-down their foe until they were able to get hold of it. First a few nips, then subsequently both had a hold. Result, two very pleased English Shepherd pups. We took our grandson to The Farmhouse, as the rain had just started falling when the engagement began. Then I walked back to get the pups. Happy dogs, a job well done. Final score, ES 1 - gh 0. MAGA
Latest from Wretchard: Russian 'democratic fraud' vs American hybrid war A couple excerpts: Yet it is the through the lens of great power rivalry that two questions about Venezuela must be answered. Is it an innovative US pushback against long running Russian hybrid warfare? More importantly does the new strategy have a chance of succeeding or is it destined to become Trump's Bay of Pigs? ... ...memorably stated expressed in the Maltese Falcon: Kasper Gutman : Well, sir, there are other means of persuasion besides killing and threatening to kill. Sam Spade : Yes, that's... That's true. But, there're none of them any good unless the threat of death is behind them. and his conclusion: The new warfare relies as much on perception as bombs and bullets. History has yet to show who will eventually win Venezuela. But it marks the first time American hybrid warfare has crossed swords with its Russian counterpart since the unmarked fall of the Rule-based World Order.* I know there are many inside the beltway--if sources are believed, NSA Bolton among them--who are pushing for military intervention. What should one expect with eliot abrams as the local American proconsul? He never saw a war in LATAM he didn't like (and a never-Trumper to boot). IMNSHO, very/Very/VERY/VERY premature to call for American boots on the ground. Lots that can and should be done prior to that Cluster****. I also take POTUS at his word about being skeptical of military interventions, and I cannot imagine after railing about failed adventures in Lybia, Syria, Iraq, and Afg, he'd want to start and open-ended commitment in LATAM, just a bit more than a year from teh next general election. *https://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/russian-democratic-fraud-vs-american-hybrid-war/

Matt - This came from and started at the top. Powers and Rice unmasking of individual (many) in 2016 gives the whole game away. This is STASI level stuff. For a more select group, the individuals were--as Mel rightly observed--unmasked much earlier, beginning in 2009. What Powers and Rice, et al, accomplished was the expansion of those "in the know." ...just my opinion.

Mel, Well, sure, and no argument. James Rosen, Sharyl Attkisson, et al.* I suspect the domestic spying operation was massive--in this I think we are in violent agreement, Melinda. The OPM loss of data on those of us with clearances might have been part of the coverup... But that is some-dimensional chess of many wearing some-colored hat (!), mainly black. heh * but in so far as the election spying began, obvi could not begin spying on candidates until they announced; that is, unless they were already being spied upon as potential enemies of the people.

On my mind: I am beginning to believe--and would like the question to be asked by TBTB, just how many candidates have been under surveillance? I suspect--since we are fairly well assured that the spying on DJT began in 2015--that every single one of the Republican candidates were placed under investigation, i.e. were spied on at the beginning of their candidacies. The spying continued, in my estimation until they dropped out, or until they were no longer considered to be an option as a Veep candidate. I think the concept might have been to initiate activities on all, and then close down those activities as a clearer picture emerged of who the R candidate would be. Likely a small network completely apart from various classified main network(s) was created to capture all information on the various investigations. Many have suggested that the investigation into DJT was known as "Crossfire Hurricane" in homage (or nod) to the Rolling Stones' song. Possible, sure. But, here's another idea. Not sure if I got the information on the "X-Fire (pronounced "Crossfire")" software here or elsewhere. (See below.) What I think may have happened is that that the Crossfire software was used to track the various investigations into all/ALL of the Republican candidates. "Crossfire" as the prefix name to distinguish the investigation from more traditional on-going FBI efforts. Anyone 'in the know' would know that the "Crossfire" prefix regarded an election investigation. The suffix "Hurricane" was the (my guess) suffix applied to DJT. Similarly, there may have been (and I believe there were) an investigations into all of the candidates, e.g.: Jeb Bush Crossfire alpha Ben Carson Crossfire bravo Chris Christie Crossfire charlie Ted Cruz Crossfire delta Carly Fiorina Crossfire echo Jim Gilmore Crossfire etcetera Lindsey Graham " Mike Huckabee " Bobby Jindal " John Kasich " George Pataki " Rand Paul " Rick Perry " Marco Rubio " Rick Santorum " Scott Walker " "ENTERPRISE INVESTIGATION SOFTWARE Law Enforcement Case Management Software X-FIRE Case Management Software Logo Effectively Manage Investigations™ X-FIRE™ (pronounced “crossfire”) is Agnovi’s best-in-class investigative case management software for law enforcement and police.

With the topic of this thread, Happy Easter weekend everyone. Mass last night attended with 13 Altar boys, two Deacons, and our Priest. SRO. Not a bad turnout, I think, in a small rural community, a county of only +/- 40K or so. When folks here in 49242 find out you are new to the area, one of the first three questions asked will inevitably be some version of: "What Church do you go to? Do you have a Church yet? Would you like to come to my Church?" Very strong Christian community here, very strong. We've got a good Bishop in Bishop Boyea. https://www.dioceseoflansing.org/office-bishop/biography-bishop-boyea We have a good Church, and now as I look, a new website too: http://stanthonyhillsdale.com/ Up on the hill, the largest such chapel built in America in at least 50 years in nearing finish: https://youtu.be/8KW03xu3BGM The outside has been completed since this video, inside the plastering is complete, painting has begun. The limestone columns inside are 70 feet tall and at least (I think) about three feet in diameter. Will seat ~1500. Regrettably, will not be ready for this year's graduation. Justice Clarence Thomas is coming for dedication in the Autumn. ~~ To the Jewish half of our Judeo-Christian community, Clarice (and anyone else for whom the bell tolls), Happy Passover to you, your families and friends! (Is that the correct greeting?) God Bless us one and all. Take good care, Sandy
