DD got quieter and quieter and than now, nothing. Oh well. I notice that "Michael Prince" (who I think from DD ramblings was James Casbolt) was on C2C? Are there special wings for former C2C etc guests in various prisons? Will DD join SDM, etc there?

I know, I'm late :(
In most cases I would say 'better late than never' but this is getting pretty sick.

Wow. It is getting even crazier and more perverted. And the "Michael Prince" stuff is weird and crazy story in itself:

Cool, for some reason I can't find any references to "Um Jarar" except that photo? I was wondering where it was. Was that just decoration or 'peacock angel' worshipped by Yazidis or various other religions like in India.

Those officers appear to being enjoying some bottles of Bass. There also is soda-bottle on the table so many also some scotch and sodas? Or gin and tonics?

I doubt if any Civil Servants took heat for OPM. They may have juggled some contractor sysadmins.

My last contract position was information security officer for an organization at NASA. I walked away from the 2nd best paying contract I ever had because of the incompetence within the civil servant ranks. And it is not just NASA. All of the federal agencies are years behind their mandatory accreditation scheduules.
On the human side there is yuugge backlog and many agencies are relying on "interim clearances."

That equifax information security officer had a bachelors and masters in fine arts - both music degrees. I hope they take that company to the cleaners.
And taken "bigly." Music degrees in charge of information security for one of the largest, if not the largest, database on people credit, financial, and personal information?  And I never heard....was anyone reassigned (I know it is hard to fire) after the yuuge OPM hack? Anyone held accountable? OPM did the same "out reach" like Equifax is trying "we are sorry, and we will give you some credit monitoring service for a period of time." That is BS and with Equifax actually pretty disgusting. Considering their power and volume of information they should be monitoring everyone's information all the time as a matter of course- not in special cases because of their incompetence.

Trump has been audited every year by the IRS and I don't expect Mueller to find anything that the IRS didn't. If he does, then it is another example of how fucked up our tax code is. Because if a team of auditors can give you a clean bill of health but a team of lawyers can find something different then the tax code is too complicated.
It is more than likely that if you give the same set of books to several different tax accountants and lawyers they each will come out with a different submission. I've even been asked by an accountant "how aggressive do you want to be." In a legitimate system the output, using same data and same laws and rules, should be the same. And, unless there was really some criminal fraud going on, YOU- not the tax-preparer- are responsible for what you submit! I think besides the obvious- the system was written to benefit bureaucrats, lawyers, and accountants (and large companies who donate to get specific tax and regulatory benefits)  it is also a useful tool in forcing dissenters, even politicians, to "come around" to a certain position or to "go after" political enemies.
ps: If true executives like these should face sanctions and penalties (and even some prison time.) Funny how executives "didn't know about hack'" That alone, if true, shows incompetence and problems in the company.

Very interesting Albrecht.  Thanks for posting this.
Another items of note: Kaspersky has been banned from protecting computers in various US government departments. I've always been a bit suspicious and find it odd that we allow(ed) so much foreign software, foreign-made equipment and chips, outsource to foreign/private companies, etc in our systems, infrastructure, military, etc.
What is interesting is that McAfee, the somewhat crazy guy, has been talking for years about problems with anti-virus, that they really don't 'do anything' now due to the complexity of the threats, and theories that the same people who make the 'solution' might even have made 'the problem.''

George is very passionte when he reports tragic and unusual injuries and deaths of children and animals. 

And has many ideas he shares about health and nutrition.  My understanding is he has tdone his best to get Tommy to slim down and regularly go othe gym, but to no avail.
Here is an odd story that Norry would like. No death but an abused, physically and emotionally, child, a clown used for discipline
 (Norry fears clowns,) and an armed drunk with a quick response, but luckily bad aim, to clown infiltration.
"Dion Santiago, a man at the apartment, fired a gunshot into his yard, but didn’t hit Barrett, who was still wearing clown mask, police said. Barrett was charged with child endangerment and inducing panic and Santiago was charged with using weapons while intoxicated, the report said. He claimed the girl’s mother is serving jail time for child endangerment after being convicted of breaking four of the girl’s ribs, police said. Barrett said his daughter was having behavioral issues, but he decided to scare her as discipline instead of spanking because of what her mother did, the report said."

Note, as often, when they do bad they are now that elusive "White Hispanic" but, on the other hand, he was "mistreated" while being taken into custody the press reports would revert back to "brown" status.

All kinds of questionable decision-making, child-rearing methods, and choices in this bizarre incident:
I look for Norry to pick this one up even though the child was not killed there was some, previous, injury and she likely will become "mean" and share Norry's fear of clowns.

That can be stipulation number 2.  Right after the one that says no illegal alien can be treated under such a plan.
Any expenses caused by illegals (via healthcare, SNAP, education, incarceration for all the other crimes they commit, car accidents/drunk-driving, school meals, cost of deportation transport, etc) should be taken from any assets they have before deportation or from accounts held by their governments, and their government leaders, in our banks (private and Fed) and/or from the aid we send them (US AID, military, loans, bailouts, etc.)

My son threw a beer bottle through his tv after 3rd down. He didn't know they won until the next morning.

True story.
Ha. Once I went down the hill and chopped down a tree -with a hatchet that I, somehow, had nearby- during party at my house, when we lost. It took a while but angry drunk and burnt off some energy. And better a tree (than people, tv, etc) and a tree that had, honestly, been bothering me- blocking views for some time, non native China-berry.

Well good luck.  College football is better overall with a strong, solid program there
ps: as soon as I mentioned/confirmed location and team I get banner ads for "feed the hunt" (Dove season now) from Jack's Beef Jerky and now some outfit advertising guns and tactical gear! Local ad on tv during half-time? "For Jail Release call 777-7777" local lawfirm that uses same strategy as a pizza company. Basically, when drunk, in good or bad circumstances, easy to remember digits to dial!

It has been some bad years and LOTSA of money wasted but, hey, the players have the best lockers! Various and sundry coaches have made enough money to retire on! Prices for tickets or food/beverages/parking haven't come down! But maybe we have, finally, turned a corner? Hopefully?

I am guessing you were a fan in the Vince Young days.
And well before that but yes and I was at "the game." Amazing time and game. Crazy stuff. I have to admit that I thought it was over and one of my buddies yelled at me "VY got this. You watch." He was right.

Deep state destablilization program. Just softening us up for the NWO.  ;)
I wonder how the Harvey response (especially by the people and neighbors) matched up against the metrics and analysis gained from Jade Helm? I suspect they might need to 'look into' private boat, "monster truck," and tractor ownership and seek further Balkanization of the populace based on race, income, ethnicity, religion, etc because people, of all kinds, were still helping each other out too much- even if fire-fighters were told to not work.

I wonder if it is the same motivation as that behind several announcements I heard during Irma, that no response to any emergency would be dispatched once the wind speed exceeded 40mph.  I am sure this was done to scare people into evacuating, but I can't help but recall brig's comment about public servants turning, at least semantically, into authorities and officials.
A neighbor was the fire marshall and before we've talked and said that flood rescues are specialized operations with special training 'first responders' of various departments. But this was not during the actual "storm" situation and, at some point, I would think any public servant would be called in to help- even if is just loading supplies, moving sandbags, assessing people's health, or, yes, rescuing people. The so-called "civilians" (I somehow missed that now firefighters and police are not civilians but a part of the military the way the government talks) brought out their own boats- even famously from border states (Cajun Navy-) but fire-fighters were told to stay home? And in some of these cases people were not told to evacuate. Don't evacuate AND tell fire-fighters not to show for work?  :o

And this has been going on for years. Baltimore riots the city officials told police to "stand down" and even let them tear up stuff, Ferguson, today in St. Louis, etc. The various "protests" allowing fights between militant groups or even just people praying etc?

What is it recently with all of these "stand down" orders and "don't show up for work" deals with firefighters and police? For riots, emergencies, floods etc they are told to "not come into work" or "stand down" or "don't interfere? Let rioters burn places, attack people, block traffic, loot, and now even don't turn up to work and help rescue people during a major hurricane and flood? It is weird.
~3,000 firefighters told to stay home during the height of the flooding.

“Why is this guy so pre...suffocated with the issue of young people, especially boys? Are you a paedophile?” Duterte asked, referring to CHR head Chito Gascon. “Why are you smitten with teenagers? Are you? I‘m having my doubts. Are you gay or a paedophile?,” he said.

Gascon did not immediately reply to a request for comment. "

Not a 3000 page version but there are two bonus chapters in their editions! Not necessary to the plot and focuses mostly on characterization. LOL.

Yeah, I saw it at Costco the other day.  He must be close to 90 yet he keeps churning them out.
Is there a special 3,000 page version for Costco or do you make you buy 2 of them in a shrink-wrap package?
