Another 18 U.S. Code § 1001? A lawyer who worked for Manafort and Gates punished for lying.  Alex van der Zwaan is likely to plead tomorrow. He is married to the daughter of German Khan a "Russian Oligarch," who interestingly is Jewish but shares the surname with London's Muslim mayor.

Great segment on the Golden State Killer, the last caller sounded like she might have been one of his rape victims.  Unfortunately I missed about 10 minutes of the interview, however.  Did anyone ask if this guy could have been the Zodiac killer? He appeared after Zodiac had dropped off the radar, and he committed his crimes in the same general area of California as that of the Zodiac murders.  Also sounds like both killers had a connection to the military.
Agreed. Last caller sounded legit. I'm on phone now so bad posting/searching. Wasn't there soer Canadian AF (i forget) that was serial killer?

Where are you?  Cutbank, Montana?
Ha! Is that a "saying?" Or quote from movie? Because:
1) I've heard before
2) I know someone who lives there and always get reports of crazy low temps.

Exactly. This is why I have always been against a powerful federal government. There will always be people who want power no matter what sort of system is in place.  The best means of controlling such abuses are elections and, now I believe, term limits.

It is also one of the reasons why I'm against humanist doctrine.  Humans will always be tempted by, lust, money and power.  I'm speaking in general terms because I believe most people are basically decent but unfortunately rarely are they the ones that rise to the top to head institutions and governments.
Original sin? Or, the humanist perspective, we are animals? Each way there should.be no surprise. One view would allow some hope due to grace, agency, etc?

Eggxacly!  And I will have a Blood Mary to go with that.  That's my secret sauce this evening.
Toomeric instead of celery salt. But really you should be making a cocktail using Tangy Tangerine as the base, not GMO tomatoes. But, if you are going with the Bloody Mary ensure you also throw in a raw egg.

From the Library of Congress.  The Tonopah Daily Bonanza, February 19, 1918.


LETTER RECEIVED FROM AVIATION CAMP

  Officer James Hayward is in receipt of a letter from his brother, C. S. Hayward, of the 823rd aero squadron, which is located at the aviation camp near Waco, Tex. He says that army life seems to agree with him and that he is taking on weight. He had been made a top sergeant which is a job that entails considerable work. There are several other Tonopah boys in camp, Stuart says, but he knows only three of them, whom he names in his letter as Bones, Spud Spargo and Peacock.

  He says: "It certainly is a wonderful thing fighting in the air. This morning about 7 o'clock two planes came together seventy-five feet in the air, just as they were landing. One of the men was killed."  <---sounds "wonderful"  :o
Ha, I can imagine how they got their nicknames: Bones for being skinny, Peacock for excessively preening before leave, Spud for being Irish (or vice-versas Bones is a fat guy etc?) There is a Spudspargo on twitter, apparently some kind of rugby aficionado in Cardiff, Wales.

It seemed like a big deal when Bubba had to declare he never inhaled. It seemed like a big deal when W was accused of having done cocaine. I guess everyone just expected that of course the black guy did drugs.

We finally get a president that doesn’t drink and hasn’t done drugs BUT TRUMP!!!
Isn't it amazing how society has "progressed" in such a short period of time? Seriously. Even under Clinton, Bill that is, could you imagine not only the normalization of deviance, drug use, being an illegal alien, porn of crazy varieties, etc would not just be mainstream or acceptable but something to be seen as a source of pride in many circles, especially Hollywood and the media? That something like a sex-tape or some public drunken behavior is a source of pride and fame? To denigrate the country is a good thing and will grant you praise and accolades? That places that used to be "about liberal values," like the media and universities, are now against free speech? That Leftists and Dems now praise agencies like the CIA and FBI- but police are vilified? Being a victim is a source of self-worth? Losers are celebrated more than winners? It is weird and sort of amazing how quickly things have changed.

None of these links sugggest CRIMINAL activity by POTUS.  And really, you're going to get your panties in a twist over someone smoking a little pot in college?  Really?  WTF is wrong with you?
Obama said he "I used drugs, I drank, I pretty much tried whatever was out there." And though I have no doubt he did drugs in college he was referring to his time in Hawaii which was when he was a minor. You asked about a crime and him using drugs or even drinking back then are crimes, that he himself admitted. I don't really care but you asked.

through the Freedom of Information Act, we present what could be one of the most insightful instances of official documentation surrounding such an encounter that had already been confirmed to have occurred by both the FAA and the USAF. These materials include fascinating audio recordings of radio transmissions and phone calls made as the incident was unfolding, as well as pilot interviews, and conversations between FAA officials made in the aftermath of the highly peculiar incident.

Georges first caller Friday night was EXCELLENT. He let her ramble on for so long, questioning and coaxing more from her, that it was obvious his other lines were empty. Cornelius and the rest of the paid callers must have had the night off. He had her on for almost 9 total minutes. The conversation ranged from some kind of powers she got from Dr Bruce Goldberg, the government's attempts to capture her, and - in what was apparently the purpose of the call - how one night when she was living in her car she asked God for a miracle and was approached by Nikolai Tesla, which was apparently a fulfillment of her prayer. I'm not really doing the call justice as it was far more disjointed and confusing than that. I had to listen to it twice and I'm still not sure what she was talking about half the time. I'm sure George berated Tom-ee during the break as he sat wide-eyed with cheeks stuffed full of candies.
Yes, that caller was a hoot. And she never answered Norry's question: "how did you get to be living in your car?" If Norry were a better interviewer he could've gotten more details about time-traveling Nikola Tesla visitation and got more crazy stories out of her. Instead he let her ramble but than ended it shortly with something like "I'm glad you made it to your sister's. Be careful."

We all have heard of camel racing and camel beauty contests (a controversy recently about the use of botox in them) in Muslim lands but apparently Muslims enjoy another odd "sport": Combat taa lkbech -Sheep Fighting.

Obama spied on our allies, on the AP, on a Fox reporter who put out an unfavorable piece - and that's just who we know about.  The US government under Berock Obama listened in on our every phone call, saw every email, photographed every piece of mail - front and back, and followed our every move on the internet.

It's not a stretch to assume the FISA warrants are exactly what they appear to be.  Certainly given what was leaked and where it surely had to come from.  False applications intended to get approval for the warrants, then using them to spy on Trump campaign associates.  Completely in character for Obama and his toadies.  Occam's razor.
It is really amazing considering the billion dollar budgets and surveillance capacity that, especially under people like Clinton and Obama, so many emails, servers, paperwork can go "missing," or as the FBI recently claimed: "“misconfiguration issues related to rollouts, provisioning, and software upgrades that conflicted with the FBI’s collection capabilities.”" And, sometimes, can mysterious "reappear" or be "suddenly found" at a later date. Art should do a show about the paranormal activities in government offices.

Out walking one night, I saw a liitle figure in the distance, walking around.  Too small to be a person, maybe two feet tall.  Definitely freaky.  Then I heard it hooting and it took off.  Sorry, no alien, just a great horned owl.
Also the "way" they walk. I think, maybe, gnomes, brownies, knisse, etc were that type of owl?

They are quiet as shit when swooping down. I have been startled several times in the woods at night.
Yep. And some are big! There are awesome BBC etc videos of them and how they can fly through trees.
ps:  heard from guy who went to school with him that a certain famous nature movie guy would fake scenes for PBS etc. Not fake but trap n release, bait, etc to get good scenes. And could party.

Great horned owls are pretty freaky when you encounter them at night.  Cool but freaky.
One crashed into my window a few years back. I tried to take pic but couldnt really cause lighting etc. But noticed when light was right: fuck like an image of bird fully expanded into window. Only time I got owl. Others often. Something to do with lighting, windows on sides, and woods. 'Net says put tape or stuff to prevent? Or hang fishline? Yeah. They don't break windows n sorta defeats purpose of windows to cover in tape. Plus birds usually survive. Or cats or coyotes get them.

From the Library of Congress.  The Tonopah Daily Bonanza, February 18, 1918.  (Late entry due to a planned power outage at the Library of Congress website.)

  BOB DALZELL, who was operated on for appendicitis at the Mine Operators hospital a couple of weeks ago, was on the street today greeting his many friends.
 
  JACK GRANT, chief of police, who has been at the home of J. J. Hall in San Diego for the past ten days, recuperating after his recent operation, has gone to Los Angeles for a few days. He expects to return to Tonopah feeling almost like a new man.
PLANNED POWER-OUTAGE? Methinks some Clinton archives being purloined or modified.


What is with the police and appendixes, or maladies necessitating operations? Biting on fake gold coins n testing bootlegged booze? "Checking in" on bawdy houses?
