20181018 16:04 Thing From Snowy Mountain I guess I'll have to hope that if I ever really need-to-know anything that Glenmore will tell me.

20181010 21:20 badanov Some Wednesday evening Beethoven:

20181009 16:58 49 Pan This is unconfirmed. I was just told that Trump will hold on releasing the FISA data because it implicates the Britts in the fusion GPS event. It all kind of falls together then. Trump ordered a review, partially with regard to Allis asking him to hold back. I always wondered how MI5 was involved. As we know the Britts hate Trump and not it seems they were working with the FBI, McCain-remember he went over there during the election, and the CIA. Maybe its a wild rumor, but it sure all fits.

20181008 12:17 Thing From Snowy Mountain Thought for the day: we're daily and hourly accused of being white supremacists but they're the ones who are always triggered by the Guy Who Defeated Nazi Germany...
20181006 21:26 trailing wife The stories we saw here at Rantburg all connected Professor Ford with the FBI, not the CIA, and it looks like the plot to frame Donald Trump with the spurious dossier came out of the FBI, not the CIA.

I have no idea how to rate Michael Savage, except that he’s a talk radio guy. But as a general principle I like my stories to either come from real journalists or trustworthy corners of the internet, or have lots of links I can follow that end up with real journalists or trustworthy corners of the internet.
20181006 03:08 Skidmark The giant Musk is hugely frustrated by the ride-along little people that surround him. He's impressed with his own deserved greatness and struggles with the 'unnecessary' constraints of regulation that keep him from getting things done. Addressing the SEC issue stole time that would have been better spent elsewhere.

$20m fine, "yeah whatever." "Oh, you want $40m? Take it, leave me alone."

Meglomania I think. Not for power, like Trump, but personal omnipotence hindered by the little people.
20181006 00:35 trailing wife Is this legitimate??

It probably is legitimate, 49 Pan. I saw the other day that the attorney general of NY state intended to explore the ssues raised by that stupid New York Times article about Mr. Trump’s ancient IRS filings.

every statement from the executive branch could conceivably be preceeded by "Donnie, From Queens, You're on the Air..."

Darn it, Snowy Thing — I am going to think of that every time for the next seven years!
20181005 21:31 49 Pan The SEC is a nightmare. So they set out to take his business, take his job. They fined him. What recourse does he have??? He can not plead his case in a court with a jury, BTW our constitutional right. The SEC is waived from the rules of due process and right to trial from a jury of your peers. .. They operate like criminals without recourse.
20181005 20:53 Thing From Snowy Mountain Skid: last Friday he was defiant against the idea of settling with the SEC. He was threatening the Board that he'd quit if they didn't defend him. By Saturday he had sent his lawyers back to the SEC and they settled at roughly twice the fine as the settlement he rejected the day before.

ANd now something's happened that's led him to bait the SEC again.

Theory 1: Maybe he's trying to quit.

Theory 2: Maybe there's other pending SEC actions that haven't been made public yet.

20181005 01:05 Skidmark Fortunately I have you stalwart warriors for truth to keep me grounded.
20181005 01:02 Skidmark The sad part is how the media is pushing my psychosis everywhere I turn so that I'm preparing for an onslaught of ZOMBIdems.
20181005 00:57 Skidmark I setup my 500 yd range today.
I'm struggling with big and slow vs fast and deep with range. Favorite is the 300 win mag, followed close with 308 vs 6.5 for my hogs and coyotes. I'm also liking the 45/70 vs 450 bushmaster for shorter ranges. Rifle prices are coming down, ammo availability is the issue.

I'm really, REALLY impressed with Breneeke's close in Black Magis 600 gr slugs. No range (60-100yds) but a massive penetrating drain hole for bears.
20181005 00:43 Skidmark I WANT to see this reviewed and upheld.
I LOVE it when a family run foundation issues checks to election party committees and directs their spending.

20181004 18:38 Thing From Snowy Mountain Seen @ Ycombinator Hacker News:

At this point I’m left questioning his sanity, or his intelligence, and the latter seems relatively sound. What is wrong with this guy, that he can’t just stfu and help his many endeavors succeed?! Shut up Elon! Shut. Up. SpaceX matters too much to be at risk because you have the self control of a toddler.
20181003 15:52 Thing From Snowy Mountain The best thing so far about the Trump Presidency is that every statement from the executive branch could conceivably be preceeded by "Donnie, From Queens, You're on the Air..."
20181002 17:39 Thing From Snowy Mountain Different L word.
20181002 07:56 Thing From Snowy Mountain Skid: I'd be worried if they actually went out and found someone from Toyota or Nissan to replace him instead of another "Sinners! In! The! Hands! Of! An! Angry! Gaia" fire and brimstone preacher.
20181002 01:22 Skidmark Could Al Gore replace Elon Musk as Tesla chairman?
20181002 01:19 Skidmark Thing, those are the 'recall units'.

20181001 12:14 Thing From Snowy Mountain Skid: I think the call was mobile-to-mobile.
20181001 10:17 Skidmark Welcome to the digital VoIP world, Thing.
Your desktop handset(?) runs with a different bandwidth and timeslice allocation than the local 'pbx', which runs at a different rate than the carrier and also the 'receiver' endpoint(s). Clarity may be slightly better with mobile to mobile.

There is no point-to-endpoint quality of service(QoS).
20181001 08:58 Thing From Snowy Mountain I just tried to call the Houston plant to talk to a friend/co-worker there because someone's going over there and may need to take tools...

I can't understand him over the phone, it cuts off too many frequencies.
20180930 21:08 Dave D. This sucks.
20180930 18:35 Deacon Blues This Kavanaugh witch hunt is exactly what AP is talking about. DiFi held the allegations until a politically expedient time. She outright lied when she said her staff nor herself leaked the news about the letter. She was in communication with Ford and even recommended the lawyer. She said she had doubts about if it was all true. She didn't care. The existence of the letter was leaked despite Ford's explicit wish for it to remain annonymous. She hasn't yest realized she is a pawn in the Democrat's plans. Or she is complicit in the accusations. It's rather telling that she either can't remember or refuses to give the date and the where of the alleged attack. What better way to smear someone. Kavanaugh can not confirm his innocense without those facts. She also can not prove he did this so in todays' environment "the woman has a right to be believed". We might as well go back to the inquisition times when an accusation was all that was needed. We might as well put all men accused in jail. Hell, put ALL men in jail.
20180930 15:42 Alaska Paul As Pan implies, the issue is not the issue. The Dems will pervert the laws to their own ends to attrit Trump and the duly elected government.

This is what happens when the body politic is weak and open to attacks against it.

Given the state of the country, we are heading for the abyss and it is like a disease that has to run its course. The dems will use anything to achieve their ends. In the end it will come down to power, kinetic power. I see no way out of it. I hate to see what has happened to our country.
20180930 11:38 49 Pan SO the story about Trump receiving foreign gifts is going to be the impeachment offence. The left, especially the young left, despise him having businesses that he goes to, for business and golfing. I know its irrational, but there it is. What they will get him on, or at least the next circus, will be the foreign government officials that stay at his hotels. The dems will try to link it to the gratuities laws saying his profit was actually a gratuity from the government and they are bribing him by using his hotels. As thin as this sound, they are correct in that he can not get the profits from them staying at his hotels. Trump, the business, recognizes this as true and paid $150 million of their profits to the USG. So there is nothing there? Right, but right before the elections the Dems will call for his business records, all of them! He will refuse and then it will all start, just like the Russian investigation. Every ne of his business associates will get investigated, they will find nothing on Trump but all his associates will go to jail for some small crappy charge. They will impeach him and demand the all his business record be made public. This is how it will go, and if the dems regain power, it will go hard and fast.
20180930 06:31 SCFI Hillary Clinton goes to a psychic who tells her: “Prepare yourself for widowhood … Your husband is about to die a violent death.” Mrs. Clinton takes a deep breath and replies: “Will I be acquitted?”

20180929 18:19 Thing From Snowy Mountain By which I mean: we'll find out whether the new Chairman of the Board and the two new independent Board members the agreement says they should have are really going to be independent or not.

And that's it for now; I'm going back to Audible Audiobook: Venice: A New History by Thomas F. Madden. And maybe a walk.
20180929 11:06 Thing From Snowy Mountain Further update from Twitter:

* Gator Investors thread on the actual details of Musk's plan to take Tesla private.. Supposedly he was going to sell some or all of his stake in SpaceX as part of the process.

Re: Silicon Valley as a whole... If they only stuck to abusing their own employees, unionization would be a good answer, but they don't restrict themselves like that. It's like they want every business model _except_ writing the software for stuff imported from overseas to be made unprofitable by regulation and legislation. And I think they've passed the event horizon where they only get their cheap junk made for resale if they go along with the continued deindustrialization of the country. Hence they have office space at the Obama White House and the Clinton Campaign...
20180929 10:31 Thing From Snowy Mountain News on the Twat-ters last night is that Musk was offered a settlement re: the situation at Tesla by the SEC and turned it down. So the SEC will continue with the investigation which is probably preliminary to a criminal investigation.

So on top of all his other problems he now gets to have the SEC rummaging around in all his filing cabinets.

20180927 14:24 Thing From Snowy Mountain Ten years ago I thought the leftist silicon-valley idiots needed unions.

Now I think they need laogai instead.
20180926 16:22 3dc Claim is: Steven Seagal is prepared to resolve Vladivostok’s political crisis and step in as governor. “I represent the interests of President Putin,” he says.
20180926 12:30 Deacon Blues 1) For starters, Ford still can’t recall basic details of what she says was the most traumatic event in her life. Not where the “assault” took place — she’s not sure whose house it was, or even what street it was on. Nor when — she’s not even sure of the year, let alone the day and month.
Ford’s not certain how old she was or what grade she was in when she says an older student violently molested her. (But she doesn’t plead inebriation: She described having just “one beer” at the party.)
2) Ford concedes she told no one what happened to her at the time, not even her best friend or mother. That means she can rely on no contemporaneous witness to corroborate her story.
3) Worse, the four other people she identified as attending the party, including Kavanaugh, all deny knowledge of the gathering in question, including Leland Ingham Keyser, who she calls a “lifelong friend.”
Keyser’s lawyer told the Senate Judiciary Committee: “Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with or without Dr. Ford.”
4) Her own immediate family doesn’t appear to be backing her up, either. Her mother, father and two siblings are all conspicuously absent from a letter of support released by a dozen relatives, mostly on her husband’s side of the family.
The letter attests to her honesty and integrity. “Why didn’t her parents and brothers sign the letter?” a congressional source familiar with the investigation wondered.
5) This summer, Ford tried to reach out to old friends from high school and college to jog her memory. They couldn’t help her. “I’ve been trying to forget this all my life, and now I’m supposed to remember every little detail,” Ford complained to one friend in July, according to an account in The San Jose Mercury News.
7) Ford contends that notes her therapist took in 2012 corroborate her account. But they don’t mention Kavanaugh.
They also point up inconsistencies in her story. For instance, her shrink noted that Ford told her there were “four boys” in the bedroom, not two as she now says. The notes also indicate Ford said she was in her “late teens” when she was assaulted. But Ford now says she may have been only 15.
8) In another inconsistency, Ford told The Washington Post she was upset when Trump won in 2016, because Kavanaugh was mentioned as a Supreme Court pick. But Kavanaugh wasn’t added to Trump’s list of possibles until November 2017, a full year later.

20180921 06:46 Bright Pebbles Did we get this one?


Ravi Karkara, a United Nations senior adviser accused of sexual misconduct against younger male subordinates, was fired from his role at the U.N. Entity for Gender Equality Monday, after nearly 15 months of investigation.

“The investigative and disciplinary processes into allegations involving a U.N. Women staff member have concluded that sexual misconduct occurred,” Phumzile Mlambo-Ngucka, executive director of U.N. Women, said in a statement Monday. “As a result, I have dismissed the staff member; this is the strongest disciplinary measure available… the staff member is prohibited from employment at the U.N.”
20180920 21:49 ZF Didn't want to keep cluttering over yonder. I skimmed through again and got it: one or more of you think I may have posted the original "49Pan" post. I didn't. Not that I can prove a negative any better than the next person. FWIW, I was reacting mostly to Abu.
20180920 21:25 3dc bravo Glenmore
20180920 21:03 3dc On the VDH thread there was a non-typical response by 49Pan. AP mentioned 49Pan's phone was getting repaired so was it him or an impostor? I'm emailing him this question.
20180920 14:16 Glenmore Written by a friend of mine:
"Dear Sons, You have studied and worked hard for what you have accomplished. You are true professionals and I pray it will remain so. But you are going to be living in dangerous times and I am not talking about terrorism. The workplace poses the most danger to you and I must, I feel, advise you to be careful in your daily encounters with people, especially women. First, never be alone with a women in the work place. Always try to work around other people so they could be witnesses if you need them. Second, always be respectful to everyone, even if they don't deserve it. Use your acting and survival skills to get you through the day. Third, never trust anyone in the work place. They are co-workings, not organ donors. Trust begets betrayal and one who smiles and dips her head today, will hire a lawyer tomorrow and sue you. Protect and guard your reputation at all cost. Fourth, if off-color jokes are being exchanged in the work place, LEAVE THE ROOM. Even passive participation will be viewed by some scorned soul as active participation. Never add to a joke which contains political, sexual or religious content. Learn to just walk away. Fifth, keep your own counsel. Never, never, never express your opinion which is outside the scope of your employment or duties. It the work place and not a playground. Manage your thoughts and actions carefully and never emote until you get home. Sixth, even if your employer has a party, don't let your guard down. There are those who will seek out relaxed inhibitions and prey upon them and then use your responses and behavior against you in court. Seventh, NEVER touch a woman while at work, other than shaking her hand. Any sign of affection--no matter how slight--may be interpreted as an unwanted overture and one that creates a "hostile working" environment for her. It's a short distance from the work place to the courthouse. Eighth, be polite and civil, but NEVER inviting. Never go to lunch alone with a female co-worker. Others might read something into it that isn't there, or she might do the same. Protect yourself from unwarranted and unfounded interpretations of your behavior. Ninth, keep a daily, contemporaneous journal of all contacts you have with co-workers. It will be admissible evidence in court if, God forbid, you need it. And tenth, I am sorry I have to tell you this,but it's the times we live in or you will live in. Some people will use anything to get ahead and are more than willing to use your back as a stepping stone. You must protect yourself everyday. I wish I could leave you more, but as an attorney, I can only give you sound advice so you will never find yourself in a courtroom or before the Human Resources manager defending actions you are innocent of. I love you and will not be around to witness all your professional accomplishments. But if there's a legacy I can leave you, it is this. Be careful. Those who smile at you are displaying the same teeth they will bite you with. Love, Dad."

20180919 10:58 Glenmore Portland grand family is doing well, all (mostly) settled in to new (old) house - $500 k for 1250 soft. Last trip I was packing and moving stuff out of old house, cleaning, fixing, watching pros fix (roof) for sale. This trip all I did was move mulch & cut down ivy. Son-in-law has resigned from his job and will be opening a new restaurant in a few weeks - I tried their food at their pop-up last spring & it was very good but I am nervous, because it is such a risky venture. Still, if anyone finds themselves in Portland after a few weeks, try BHUNA for some ‘Indian soul food’, Kashmiri based.
20180919 08:11 Deacon Blues A long time ago I was working at a paper mill near Mobile, Alabama. Engineering work. The bar we went to after work was on one of the byous near Mobile. It had a deck on the back overlooking the water. There was a large gater who lived there and we would throw marshmallows and he would catch and eat them. We named him Izod. One day we went after work and the owner told us we would have to stop feeding Izod marshmallows because when the owner got out of his car that morning with a brand-new pair of white tennis shoes on Izod chased him across the parking lot. I've always wondered what happened to Izod.
