    So here’s something interesting in a sidebar kind of way. Just released texts between Smuck, Smirk, Strzok and Page are being used to point out Page’s dislike of BLM. Great, let’s get her cancelled over at MSNBC. Another one of those rogue torpedos just doing it’s job.

    But there’s something else interesting in the exchange.

    Near the bottom, Smuck says:

    But I did sit and stare at the portrait of Elliot Richardson staring at me. It’s next to the portrait of Eric Holder, which is wildly offensive.

    It’s clear that he despises one of these two past AGs, but which one? Since Elliot had the guts to stand up to Nixon during the Watergate scandal, I would guess it is Richardson who he idolizes. It would appear that Smuck (and likely his cabal) despised AG Holder. Perhaps that was already known, but it’s news to me.

    Here’s the Just The News article where I found this:

      I interpret it, the way it’s written, that Richardson is the “offensive” one. It’s also an interesting window into personality types: fragile snowflakes needing “comfort dogs” while at the same time being power junkies who want to pull the levers and work the controls forever and ever. DC needs to be broken up.

        I agree about the snowflakes. If you’re right about whom they despise, they are hypocrites too. Here they are, in their minds “standing up to” a sitting President, while they are simultaneously despising Richardson, who in some sense did the same thing.

        My interpretation: ‘I ( Peter Srzok) find it offensive that E. Richardson (whom I don’t admire) is placed right next to E. Holder, whom I do admire.’ In other words, the placement of photos is what’s offensive, not any particular photo!

    I know many have criticized the digital promotional efforts by the Trump Campaign’s re-election efforts. Yes, this effort has become a clown show.

    It was bad enough getting the “guilt trip” donate more money texts on my cell phone 7-8 times a day. I had to ask them to stop.

    Now, they have ramped-up the email solicitations to an annoying degree. Yesterday alone, I received 12 emails asking for money. As much as I hate to do it, I am opting out of the barrage of “guilt trip” solicitations.

    I’ve sent email back to them explaining that the tact they are using is a turn off, but of course, I receive no reply. If anyone here has any contact with the Trump re-election team, please let them know they have carried this campaign donation promotion too far, and it needs to be throttled a bit.

I try to remember that it costs the campaign nothing to send the texts and emails and every time they send them out if they get even a few donations it adds to the coffers to help them.

      TDS, do you donate to other candidates and charities? I could explain to you how all this works but it would take too much writing. The short of it is, if you are donating to other groups then your name is getting rented or exchanged by those other groups even if you haven’t donated to Trump in while. You eventually over time will fall off his “house” file and then you will resurface when his team goes out and rents more data from one of the other candidates or charities you donate to.

      If I were you I would look for a contact for whomever is running PDJT’s digital campaign. And once you find it, contact them and ask them to add you to their do not solicit file. Tell them you want your name flagged as never to be contacted. But also make sure to tell them you don’t want your name rented out or exchanged either. That way you won’t get solicitations from other groups either.

      Unfortunately, once you donate to a cause they own your “donor” information and they trade and sell that data daily.

      I work in political/charitable fundraising here in DC. Your data is constantly being sold and purchased once you donate to a cause or candidate. You have to get a hold of whoever is handling his digital campaign and tell them to flag you. I know the direct contact info for his mail campaign, but I don’t work with anyone in the digital field. Sorry I could not be of more help.

      OH! One more avenue you could take is to contact the DMA (Direct Marketing Assocation) and have them add you to the national DO NOT PANDER file. That should get you off all DM mailing lists.

      I recommend being very careful of the email requests as most of these are PACs that may or may not have any relation to the Trump campaign. I suspect some are actually democrat PACs or groups trying to get the unaware to throw money at them. Always check who is sending the email. Never use the link in the email for donations. Go to the web site directly. I’ve seen several with Donald Trump as the From field but looking further they are a PAC or some unknown group. Go to their web site and verify. I recommend strongly that everyone find valid campaigns or PACs and donate to them only. I have spammed any message that threatens and have found several that have no description on their site as to who they are or how donations are being used. BE CAREFUL. The other side is pure evil and using any and all subversive methods.

      To repeat, many if not most have no connection to the actual Trump campaign even while using his name in the email. Replying to these emails will not result in any action since the replies are simply dumped in the bin. Just my thoughts.

      That is not what happened. It is wrong to assume there were no valid predicates just because the Woods files on these 29 applications were incomplete.

      As the article states “The Department was able to resolve many of the potential issues identified by the OIG. The FBI was also able to compile Woods files for the 4 applications where an original Woods file could not be located, and the FBI was able in many instances to locate documentation to support a factual assertion either elsewhere in the Woods file or in other files available to the FBI.”

    Curious what Sundance’s take is on the DOJ statement from yesterday that all 29 of the 29 FISA’s they looked at were properly predicated?

    Amazing that from Adm Rodgers audit 85% were non compliant and yet under this review by Barr’s US Attorney there is a 100% compliant rating.

    Seems pretty impossible. Kind of like Epstein killing himself.

      Properly predicated means there was a valid reason to issue the FISA warrant.

      The problem with those 29 warrants was the supporting paperwork. It was incomplete.. Woods file missing. Etc.. this has nothing to do with FISA fraud.. where certain parties (FBI Clinesmidt) altered an e-mail to renew a FISA warrant.

      • allin4freedom says:

        Being properly predicated is a projection. These warrants, as well as the Carter Page warrants, were legally insufficient as presented to the court by the FBI and they should have been invalidated, thereby causing the cases to be thrown out. “Fruit of the poisoned tree.” Had this been done, the Trump administration and the country would not have had to go through three years of hell. Sadly, AG Barr appears to be trying to salvage the reputation of the FBI and Justice Department. The attempt is a Sisyphean task; rather, burn it to the foundation and rebuild. Then we might trust them again in a quarter century or so.

    The timing and message is clear, from the 4+ I viewed (one is a series of 3 1-hour videos). They want to smear President TRUMP with this and AG Bill Barr. And Alex Acosta and Alan Derschowitz, who they call the President’s attorney, a fact which took place long after Jeffrey was captured, and only because of the shampeachment brought on by these same radicals.

    I would argue that in fact looking at daily positive tests overcounts the actual “new” infections by a huge number …
    If you test positive what are the odds that you will get another test in a week ? pretty high since often you need a negative test to return to work or simply for your own peace of mind … so you come back in a week and bingo … another positive test … but you are not a new infection yet your positive test will be counted as if it is … and you’ll be back in a week for another test … it could take a month before you end up with the negative test you are looking for … but every one of your positive tests are counted as a “new” infection …

      An ICU nurse that goes to the same fitness center as I do said that when an elderly person tests positive they hospitalize them as a precaution, even if they have no symptoms. Then they test him or her every two days until they test negative, and each positive test counts as a new “case”. Thus, one apparently healthy person can count as one hospitalization and a half dozen or more “cases”.

      Also, the CDC website says testing positive means a person has Covid 19 OR another coronavirus, such as the COMMON COLD.

      Also, the most accurate test claims a false positive rate of only 4%. 52 million tests at 4% false positive equals about TWO MILLION false positives.

      Yet the media and government agencies only talk about cases, cases, cases, without mentioning what is counted as a “case”, or about false positives. Many people are being scared and scammed BIG TIME.

      I saw that episode of Tucker’s show and as soon as I saw it I disagreed. Tucker may think they are disqualified by some standard he has, but he also felt Trump was disqualified. Tucker comes from the position that people have to have certain credentials to be qualified to run for high office. Trump’s lack of political experience was something Tucker didn’t like, along with many others on the right who felt the same way. They couldn’t see that our founders set up the nation to be exactly what we showed when we elected President Trump. That is, willing to look at who, from the citizenry, could do the job. The founders didn’t want people to be lifelong politicians. All that said, the Dems have their own standards for what they consider qualified. The spelled some of them out when they said it would most likely be a woman of color. They didn’t publicly say the other things they required, but we can see it in who they are considering.

      On the other hand, to us on the right, no one the Dems run for anything is qualified for it because we require candidates to be America-loving and Constitution-embracing and no Democrat is. Tucker’s monologue makes for good viewing, but it really is only saying that to people like us those choices by Dems are unacceptable.

      This was a big deal!

      It’s amazing in looking back on all the great things that President Trump has accomplished during these first 3- 31/2 years of his Presidency, in the midst of the most horrific attack on our nation’s very foundation, he still gets these long overlooked and vital to our nation’s future needs pieces of legislation taken care of.

      In the midst of feeling despair over what’s going on in my State of Nevada with a middle of the night one-sided complete revamp of our voting system, watching today’s Bill signing, and sensing the work and spirit that Sundance too is carrying forward in the midst of what he must have originally felt as a momentary despair when realizing the depth of what he discovered, to then find the spirit to proceed with what needs to be done in spite of the outer presence of evil –

      I’m finally getting it. The speeches when the President was first running for office, and he would say never quit, never give up, when everyone else is saying “it can’t be done” all the more reason to keep at it, Winners never quit;

      I’m learning; we’re all learning, this is how it’s done, this is how we take our nation back.

      All the left have are tantrums ala ‘protests’ and statue topplings, middle of the night change the rules of the game legislation moves, and fear. Fear of the unknown boogie man. Nations aren’t built of fear; they are built on love, and we know the power of what happens when someone truly loves something.

    FTA “The slow conclusion of the race, in large part because of the large number of mail-in ballots during the pandemic, is raising concerns about whether similar problems will occur in the November elections……The judge’s Monday decision will allow ballots that were received one to two days after the election date – June 23 – to be counted, so long as they are postmarked by the 23. Though, her order leaves room for ballots received as late as June 30 to be counted, if they are the deciding factor in the race….”They’re six weeks into it now. They have no clue what’s going on,” President Trump said Monday, echoing similar remarks he made on Friday. He called the race “a total disaster,” suggesting it should be “rerun.”….Election boards were overwhelmed by the more than 400,000 mail-in ballots that were submitted in New York City alone, which tops the number sent in across the entire state in 2018. Post office officials, who testified last week, said that the system they used to date mail-in ballots was not foolproof. Some ballots weren’t postmarked, making the judge’s order harder to enforce, and casting doubt on the ability of the office to handle an election involving hundreds of millions of mail-in ballots. ”

    What we have to look forward to this November. Oh by the way Manhattan Federal Court Judge Analisa Torres is an obama appointed Federal Judge. Amazing how all these cases end up with a obama Judge setting a precedence for November!

    • Treepers- as soon as you have a minute, please call your LOCAL county Board of Elections and ask them if they are planning to have in person voting! It is extremely important that you do this ASAP.

      I called mine (Putnam, NY) and was told that yes, they are planning for in person voting. They are also looking for poll watchers and workers for the day of election. These are paid jobs and well worth doing as you can have a part in making sure your local election is on the up and up.

      Maybe we can share information from around the country to see what’s happening in our counties. This is the best way I know of to insure that we will be able to vote in the usual manner. (Absentee ballots are fine- they are NOT the same as mail in ballots like the ones they are talking about in the article.)

    From the perspective of this voter, the GOPe(s) from my vicinity, that I have come to detest from the experience of watching their votes/actions/statements over the years, are all there.

If you again lose 9% in the third quarter, you’d have 753,571 jobs left. And if you lost 9% in the fourth quarter, you’d have 685,750 left.

                  You are making it far too complicated. It’s not that complex.

                  “Annualizes” simply means to show how a period (weekly, monthly, quarterly) statistic – in this case a loss – would translate into a yearly statistic (loss, in this case) if the same percentage of loss is experience in every period for a full year.

                  There is no magic to it; it’s not an “average”; it is merely a way to express the current period’s loss number as a full year’s loss if the exact same percentage of loss as the current period happens in every period.

                  And more importantly, annualizing a statistic has very little hard practical application or impact, because we know in this case that the percentage of loss or gain never stays the exact same from period to period. But… some folks prefer to convert every periodic stat to an annualized number as a means of comparison for other periods.

                  Personally, I find that using the annualized statistic merely serves to exaggerate the current quarterly statistic (and that applies either way – whether it’s a loss or a gain).

    Dr Z said HCQ could not be given FDA emergency use certification as only one treatment is allowed per emergency use declaration.
    If the HCQ treatment was FDA emergency-use certified, Fasci’s beloved Remdesvir and/or other expensive treatment could not receive the benefit of the Gubmint blessing for massive profits.

    Mandatory vaccines to be able to go back to work promoted by Rockefeller heir George O’Neill and published in the National Review.

    HUGE explosion in Beirut port. The BS story is a fireworks warehouse blew up. Don’t think so. Looks like some scores are being settled.

    Also, more fires in Iran at various important facilities. There have been reports for weeks now from Israeli sources about suspicious fires and explosions in and around Tehran particularly.

    Meanwhile, our useless media continues to lie to us about ‘peaceful protestors’.

    Gotta ask… Anyone here hear about an interview the President gave to Axios? A bunch of “concerned” people are saying it was bad?
