Tuesday January 9th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      Salacious Smear Campaigns is a better descriptor/category for that book – and the fact that it is a book, not an article indicated it’s the work of the NeverTrumpers (pretend conservatives who are really uniparty and globalists).

      That book smells like Ted Cruz and his nasty crew, Jeff Roe and the ex-CIA guy he got to steal votes from Ben Carson.

      It also smells like the Bushes, McCain, and that (shudder) creepy CIA operative McMullin, and of course, Romney.

      It was the same ilk as the PP Dossier and the illegal surveillance of Donald J Trump and his family.

      Washington Examiner calls the author a fabulist.

      https://mobile.twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/950507677314101248

      “Michael Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury is supposed to be an explosive account of palace intrigue and turmoil within the Trump White House, and is at the same time a prime example of why Americans’ trust in the media is at an all-time low. What is meant to be a tell-all about what’s really happening in the corridors of power has thus far come off as the exaggerated, unsourced story of a fabulist.

      Wolff is not a marginal figure in the media. He’s been a longtime journalist for prestige publications, with bylines in Vanity Fair, GQ, USA Today, and more.”

      We developed this tool/tactic back in 2012. Also look at the mortar rounds themselves in the Russian MOD photos. The rounds are encased in plastic and appear to have plastic tail fins. Those rounds appear to have been manufactured for a specific purpose where weight was a consideration. I don’t see those rounds and casings being designed and manufactured in some garage in Syria.

        Correction, I’ve had a chance to enlarge and enhance the photo of the mortar shells and it now appears the tail fins are not plastic, but some kind of metal. Also, the body of the shells, have a sheen on them, but does not appear to be plastic.

        I can not find any mortar shells whose tail fins match those in the photos. Also, there appears to be visible machine (turnings) marks on the body of the shell. It also appears that the tail fins were soldered onto the body of the shell.

        Any former mortar men out there that can identify the fuse on the rounds in the photos?

      I’d posted years ago when the anti-Assad campaign just started that Russia would under no circumstances allow Assad to fall unless they had a viable alternative in place. Russia has held its naval base at Tartus, its last Med basing for its Black Sea Fleet, for decades and its nearby signals intelligence facility is another vital Med/Mideast asset it will not give up.
      There are also the plans for petro chemical shipment facilities Russia’s building in Syria, including a huge natural gas liquefaction and shipping terminal that will feed the Americas. pipelines are being built to feed Russian and Gulf oil and natural gas through Syria to these ports/plants and Russia’s not about to lose the chance to be rolling in cash from the profits.
      Russia took the period of 2008 thru 2016 when we had a feckless POtuS and a klepto SecState to advance in the Mideast, it’s also revisiting its old strategic ties with Cuba, considering strongly reopening its old sigint station in Lourdes and establishing a strategic airbase or two in Cuba also. I was betting that if the POtuS gave Gitmo back to Cuba we’d see an Americas joint Russian commercial/naval base built there too. Then again if Oprah wins in 2020 if Putin goes on her show she just might give him Gitmo instead of a new car.

    On another note, I was reading the WORLD debt is something like 240 some-odd trillion $$$. Years ago I also read where dozens and dozens of countries owe the USA billions and yes, even trillions of $$$ but have never paid a dime back. I’m wondering if anyone had the actual numbers and how OUT of debt the USA would be if all those countries PAID BACK their DEBTS? I’m guessing at LEAST 100 trillion of that world debt is owed to the USA. Anyone?

    I was sitting down with a friend who’s still in the ‘wasting time catching bad guys’ business (he’s getting ready to retire) and discussing drug busts. He was mentioning the opiod problems they’re having, how drug deaths and busts have skyrocketed. Now I know it’s bad, it’s on the news almost nightly but, as with other crimes, you hear it so often it tends to slide right by you.
    He carries Narcan now, he’s expected to revive illegal opiod users before he arrests them and turns them over to the courts who’ll put them in rehab where they’ll slide back to opiod abuse, OD, he’ll revive/arrest them again…the circle of strife.
    Now in Louisiana you can get a minimum of 4 years at hard labor (defines a felony in La) and up to 10 years without benefit of probation or suspension and a $5000 fine. If you’re caught dealing you get life without probation or suspension and a $50,000 fine at the least. Get caught selling to a minor and the penalty doubles. Yet there’s no shortage of sellers to supply the tsunami of users.
    He’s telling me he sees as much heroin as cocaine and opiod deaths are scary high…so to speak.
    When I left some ten years ago we saw far more crack than heroin users, now we’re seeing opiod overdose deaths inside the prisons, what happened.
    Just for the heck of it I went back to the CDC and looked at their stats for opiod deaths in 2008, the year after I left. US deaths for all opiods (including heroin) were at about 18,000 ( https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db81.pdf ), by 2016 we’re at nearly 30,000 from all opiod causes ( https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/09/02/upshot/fentanyl-drug-overdose-deaths.html ). Note that the Chinese supplied fentanyl deaths rose nearly 5.5 times alone.If this isn’t bad enough the CDC’s estimating that opiod deaths may be underreported by 20% or more ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/12/21/cdc-releases-grim-new-opioid-overdose-figures-were-talking-about-more-than-an-exponential-increase/?utm_term=.7de0f98cedeb.
    Now what could have accounted for this huge jump in opiod related deaths (and illegal opiod users) between what I see as the start of the observed period in January 2009 (2008 count ended in December 2008) and the end of December 2016? Opiod deaths in 2016 are right up there with automobile accident deaths and we’re all over that, yet over an eight year period illegal opiod deaths mushroom and we’re getting a lotta sizzle with little steak.
    L just can’t help wonder what factor made the opiod crisis between January 2009 and December 2016 blow up like it did……

    Good evening fellow treepers. I’ve got a question you all may be able to help me with. So I’ve been on a branch here now for at least a year, daily reader and blessed to have Sundance et al in my life. We are living in the best timeline ever.
    Here is my question, and i will make this long: When talking politics with friends and family, I constantly reference Sundance’s work. Like music, songs or movies, I often pass on links and names of websites. One acquaintance never picked up on my “conservative treehouse” referrral. When I spoke with him again, months had passed and he had missed a lot. I had to guide him here in person with his phone’s browser. It kinda bothered me that the treehouse isn’t so easy to find.
    When I got home, I pretended I never heard of “Sundance / Conservative Treehouse / CTH / Last Refuge / treepers” and opened a browser to search for this mythical place i’m pretending my buddy just told me about. I opened a my brave browser (hint, hint) and typed in ….. wait….. what? something like refuge? he said “sunny treehouse” …umm….. dang, i should have wrote that down!#

    Anyways, question…what is everyone’s favored/preferred name for this wonderful place.

    “Sundance” doesn’t do it cuz the search engines take me to a film festival somewhere.
    “CTH” fuggitaboutit
    “treehouse” of course doesn’t help much without adding “blog” or “politics” on a second search.
    “treeper” get’s me close but the urban dictionary has something to say about that.
    “last refuge” seems to be the answer. it returns a number 1 search result with a side bar wiki plug for a french film. Also, the head banner on the site it links to here says, plain as day, The Last Refuge, but the url says theconservativetreehouse.com which is confusing, but I’m here so, winning.

    I’m calling it “Last Refuge” even though thats kinda hard to say in a bar but I like sunny treehouse better,

    Thanks for listening, i’d be interested in hearing what you all call this place.
