    ...lining up “ordinary people” to proclaim how bad it is.
    By your quotes I can tell that you are alluding to the "ordinary people" that always end up being shills, Democrat operatives, etc. The Dems are so arrogant they think we still believe their stuff. We don't.

    Fake News

    Agreed. Fake news. As soon as I read the "Trump boasting about sexually assaulting women" line I stopped reading. More Fake News. Trump said that women will let you do anything you want when you're a celebrity, not that he did. Big difference.

    Since I didn't continue reading, I don't know if the story ever got to the issue of Podesta's use of simplistic credentials, or his not changing his credentials after they had been publicly exposed. It seems like that would be an important part of any story about "hacking".
  • Receipt shows Vegas gunman...may have had a guest visiting him

    Some reports have him checking in as early as September 25th despite the official narrative.

    He checked into one room of the suite on Monday September 25 and added on the second room on the 28th. Depending on how it was displayed on the hotel property management system it's easy to see how someone saw the 28th check in date for the additional room and assumed that was the check in date for the entire stay, which it was not.

    I think it’s meaningless. I travel on business a lot and often order extra food/drink from room service, especially during an extended stay. I usually do it so I don’t have to wait for room service later in the day and to eliminate an additional interruption if I’m working on a project. Some hotels charge a flat fee per order as well, so I save money by ordering once. Not sure if Mandalay Bay does.

  • McCain Says He Won't Be Bought [semi-satire]

    JayNorth to John Semmens

    John McCain says “he can’t be bought”, assuming you aren’t talking about the 1989 “Keating Five”.

    In addition to McCain, the Keating Five consisted of fellow liberals Cranston (D-CA); Deconcini (D-AZ); Glenn (D-OH); and Riegle (D-MI) and were accused of corruption by improperly intervening on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., Chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB).

    Should take about four days to depopulate the entire country.

    Don't forget all 57 states. Locating the final seven may take a few more days.
  • Did Dennis Rodman Help Release Otto Warmbier in North Korea?

    I guess I’m hard-hearted but I have zero patience or empathy for someone who travels to North Korea or Iran, gets incarcerated, and then wants the US State Department to negotiate their release. You chose to go to those places and now there are consequences.

    Same thing for people who travel to countries with severe penalties for drugs, porn, weapons, bibles, etc. and are smuggling those items in their baggage. Are they so arrogant or naive that they think they are above the law or will convince a customs officer that their laws are wrong?

    So she was backing up devices with classified data onto her husband’s porn viewing device...

    ...and we all know how porn sites infect PCs with all kinds of dubious malware, making it even easier for classified material to be exposed.

    All of the silliness regarding classified documents is an attempt to bamboozle the public. In a past life I was responsible for the handling of classified material and I know firsthand the level of effort we had to go through to remediate when someone at another company accidentally forwarded one of our employees an email with a classified document attached. The offending document had to be removed from every device and backup system it passed through on its path through our company. So trying to pretend that there is a difference between forwarding, backing up, having your own server, using an unauthorized and insecure device etc. is pure misdirection.

    Maybe if the police would actually get out their cars and arrest the miscreants it would be safe for someone to speak at a supposed “institution of learning”. Instead the police are ordered to stand down and do nothing so that the school can claim that they are unable to provide a safe venue.

  • Fly the Friendly Skies? You get better treatment on Con Air than on most domestic US airlines

    Back in 1968 I was returning from VN and had to fly (in uniform) SF to Chicago. American Airlines stuck my military @ss in the last row of a half full plane.

    Thank you for your service.

    The main speaker at an event I attended last week was speaking about terrorism and got a very positive (and rowdy) reaction from the audience when he said (paraphrasing) "I know that some of you don't understand that these people want to kill us. I know that you disagree with this policy or that policy. But for God's sake can you please support the troops that are risking their lives to protect you?".

    I think that's what got lost in the VN war. Hopefully we have gotten better as a civilization since then. I do see a lot of very nice random acts of kindness towards uniformed military in my frequent travels, which sure wasn't there on the return home from VN for many.

    Oscar Munoz, the CEO, called the passenger ‘disruptive and belligerent’ and praised his staff for going ‘above and beyond’”. Wow, this CEO is completely incompetent! The multiple passenger videos available on-line don’t lie. Do you think the reason the passenger became ‘disruptive and belligerent’ might have something to do with dragging him out of his paid-for assigned seat bleeding?

    I do agree with Munoz on one point, the staff (and the three thugs) did go ‘above and beyond’, just not in a good way. Excessive force is, by definition, ‘above and beyond’.

    I haven’t flown United since the 1980s when they overbooked first class on my Hong Kong—>Los Angeles flight by 18 (yes, eighteen!) seats and ‘reaccommodated’ us to center seats in coach for the rather lengthy flight home. I said ‘never again’ after that debacle and have kept true to my word.

    Looks like their boycott strategy worked as well as their fiscal, military, health care, immigration and pretty much every other strategy has, a complete backfire. They have done us an enormous favor by exposing the retail establishments that we can and should avoid spending our $$$ at.

    As most elected dims have not been involved in the private sector this is lost upon them.

    Plus the elected dems are famous for their household staff being off the books, not legally in the U.S.; no FICA or other taxes, etc. They're so worried in public about minimum wage however when they need a nanny, housekeeper or a cook then suddenly it's just fine to pay $2 or $3 per hour under the table with no benefits.

    Even though I get the feeling she leans left; it's only a little. She's fair and to me; that's what counts most.

    Megyn is making a career-killing move, and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving person.

    One more benefit...since her salary will be in the $15M range, plus all the production and promotion costs, it will waste that much more of NBC's money that they won't have available to spend on their indoctrination and fake news operations.

    I think there are over 900 Arizonan Freepers. Perhaps one of them could clue us in about why it is that voters there foist this miserable creep McCain on the rest of the country election after election.

    I'm from Arizona's next door neighbor, Nevada. We kept "electing" Harry Reid over and over and now, in 2016, his corrupt and inept surrogate.

    What I can't understand is that at work everyone stays out of political discussions with comments like "well it will be an interesting race" and other noncommittal phrases. On Harry Reid, however, the revulsion is unanimous. "I cannot stand that thief" is a common reply. So how does he keep getting re-elected every term? I wonder if it is somehow related to the Arizona John "Keating Five" McCain conundrum?

    it will take YEARS to repair all the Obama damage to America (and our allies)

    I respectfully disagree. Although there's no question that a LOT of damage has been done by the current administration, I believe that we are all going to be amazed at how quickly things turn around under President Trump's leadership. It won't be easy, and there is the enemy within to contend with on both sides of the aisle, however I am very optimistic.

    Why? Two reasons. a) I lived through the Carter years and saw just how quickly Ronald Reagan raised our morale, expectations and delivered on his promises. b) I have had the pleasure of working with several CEOs who have taken over broken companies with demoralized staff, lame products and poor customer service and turned them around in an amazingly short period of time. NOTE: I didn't include a third bullet point labeled "c)" because I didn't want to confuse our previous Secretary of State.

    ...after a five-hour meeting at the failed candidate's New York office...

    Since the MSM always adds the adjectives "right wing", "extreme right", etc. to anyone they disagree with, for consistency any references to Hillary should include the phrase "the failed candidate" in every sentence. Any references to Bill should include "husband of the failed candidate Hillary Clinton".
