    Not sure which of the swamp’s fetid estuaries this sentiment is best lobbed into…

    For those whose fight seems to have lost any sense of direction or impetus…

    Myself included…

    With a very limited understanding of the true stakes and field of battle involved, only the primal sense of duty to those near and dear to me, and knowing God fights for His people, again and again throughout history…

    Keeps me trudging forward, in a small way like the statues of the Korean War Memorial…

    Then the strains and words of this song come to refresh and strengthen my spirit once again…

    Fight the good fight with all thy might;
    Christ is thy strength, and Christ thy right;
    Lay hold on life, and it shall be
    Thy joy and crown eternally.

    Run the straight race through God’s good grace,
    Lift up thine eyes, and seek His face;
    Life with its way before us lies,
    Christ is the path, and Christ the prize.

    Cast care aside, upon thy guide,
    Lean, and His mercy will provide;
    Lean, and the trusting soul shall prove
    Christ is its life, and Christ its love.

    Faint not nor fear, His arms are near,
    He changeth not, and thou art dear.
    Only believe, and thou shalt see
    That Christ is all in all to thee.

    I love that photo above of the Korean War Memorial in DC. You start at the WWII Memorial, and the area is full of life, laughing and shaking of hands. It’s bright and open and inviting. You walk a little down a path and come to the Korean War Memorial with those life-size statues walking through the grass. All around are small signs placed in the ground from South Korean groups thanking America for what they did for their nation. It’s more somber but still you hear people talking. A little further down the path brings you to the Vietnam Memorial. People are talking in a whisper there and the wall casts a dark shadow across the field. Each memorial has a different feel, with each feel representing how Americans felt about the wars in the era.

    And the WWI memorial is off in the distance, away from the path. It’s a small stone gazebo-like structure, which actually honors only the D.C. citizens who died in the war. The Washington mall is an amazing place.

      One of the most gut wrenching memorials was the Vietnam Women’s Memorial. It’s off to the side and not very noticeable. When I saw the anguish on the nurse’s faces, I couldn’t help but sob. If you ever get a chance to walk through Arlington Cemetery rather than ride a tour bus, it’s well worth it. It really has impact. Paying respects at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is also a must.

      That’s actually a win to get just a 90 day extension. During this extension the FISA Report will be out and if it’s as revealing as some think, it should….SHOULD…..make for some substantive reforms in FISA authorizations and ops.

        Of course, the CR would have to pass both houses and PDJT would need to sign it. I cannot imagine that the Dimms would want a shutdown right now.

        I a happy for the temporary extension. FISA needs to be reformed or killed. It would be a bad thing if Congress were to do the congressional thing and consider themselves briefed by Horowitz then vote to make the sucker permanent.

        BTW, AOC and Ilhan Omar have both tweeted that they don’t want FISA reauthorized at all.There might be a little bipartisanship left in the House after all.

    Sorry for the tangent…
    My dad fought in the Korean war. My first recollection of his involvement was seeing a 12″ scar along his side.
    If you’ve heard anything about the weather on the peninsula, you’ll understand why he absolutely hated the cold.
    Similar thoughts came from one of my bosses later in life.

    The Barr/Durham issue isn’t whether or not they can run a criminal investigation.

    The problem is the courts. Expect judges to block them at every turn. Ever lenience and room giving to the plotters will be denied Durham.

    Indictments will be tougher to get, and even tougher to prosecute.

    Get ready to be disappointed. Expect more of … well rules were bent and broken and there were irregularities but nothing criminal. Many are already saying if Durham brings any indictments don’t expect them until April or May. That means trials likely wouldn’t start before the November election. If Trump loses, the new Dem AG will just drop all charges. IMO that is what Barr wanted and why this whole process has moved at a snail’s pace.

      If there are real arrests of Obama DOJ, FBI and CIA officials before the election next year we’re better off having the trials after the election because the arrests will be damaging enough to help President Trump win reelection. That’s all that matters!

      Given the amount of damage Congress can do in that 8 days per month, maybe we don’t want them there any longer.

    Treepers really need to take more interest in judicial appointments.

    Two new judges were confirmed and seated last Thursday to the 2nd circuit Court of Appeals. Pretty convenient! It’s now 7-5 GOP with 5 PT appointees.

    These last two judges were (Menashi) who was counselor to the President., and (Nardini) who was an assistant US Attorney in the District of Connecticut “criminal division”. As his first two appointees (Sullivan and Bianco) were also once US Attorneys in the district of NY “criminal division”. The 5th appointee (Park) is straight out of the Antonin Scalia law school and clerked for Alito.

    Durham is located in Connecticut. I’ve seen those among us express concern about indictments and convictions due to the swampy judicial system. You might want to reassess. IMO…these appointments have been very well planned out. And timed perfectly.

      FISA Court Rolls Over, Plays Dead
      Aug 28, 2013

      https://www.forbes.com/sites/jennifergranick/2013/08/28/fisa-court-rolls-over-plays-dead/#2b26114763ae

      A newly declassified opinion shows FISA court “oversight” in the face of egregious, unconstitutional and potentially criminal government misconduct means nothing.

      Last week, thanks to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s excellent FOIA work, we got the gift of a newly declassified 2011 FISA court opinion. The opinion finds that the government misled the FISA court for over three years about the details of its illegal and unconstitutional surveillance programs. These lies hid from the court the fact that every year, the NSA is collecting at least 56,000 emails – and possibly many more — between innocent Americans who have no foreign connections and are suspected of no crimes. That’s bad, but the worst part of it is, when the government’s lies were finally exposed the FISA court demanded … that NSA analysts read our private messages right away, so they can be used or deleted more quickly. In other words, the government got not a slap on the wrist, but a pat on the back.

      This was the third lie in less than three years that the FISA court had learned about. The judge described one such pattern of lying in Footnote 14 of this newly declassified opinion. There, the clearly outraged judge said the NSA had misrepresented so frequently and systematically how it conducted its program to collect and query Americans’ phone call records that the agency had utterly subverted the Court-mandated oversight regime for that program.

      So what did the court do when it found out it had been lied to, that purely domestic communications were fair game, that untold numbers of innocent people were being illegally spied on, and that all the safeguards in place needed to be rethought?

      Nothing, really. The court suggested the NSA should train its analysts to notice when their queries turned up an MCT – i.e., an Internet transaction containing multiple messages — and then to look carefully at all the by-catch. If existing procedures allowed them to use anything in those purely domestic messages that they were never supposed to have collected in the first place, great! Otherwise, only after collection and review, should the information be deleted. The NSA adopted this approach, and continues to blithely collect Internet transactions containing wholly domestic communications between innocent Americans to this day.
