      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Investigators Are Scrutinizing Newly Uncovered Payments By The Russian Embassy

https://www.buzzfeed.com/jasonleopold/newly-uncovered-russian-payments-are-a-focus-of-election?utm_term=.avRNRBqpyv#.xxqkWLDEn2

Excerpt -

The transactions reveal:

  • One of the people at the center of the investigation, the former Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak, received $120,000 ten days after the election of Donald Trump. Bankers flagged it to the US government as suspicious in part because the transaction, marked payroll, didn’t fit prior pay patterns.

  • Five days after Trump’s inauguration, someone attempted to withdraw $150,000 cash from the embassy’s account — but the embassy’s bank blocked it. Bank employees reported the attempted transaction to the US government because it was abnormal activity for that account.

  • From March 8 to April 7, 2014, bankers flagged nearly 30 checks for a total of about $370,000 to embassy employees, who cashed the checks as soon as they received them, making it virtually impossible to trace where the money went. Bank officials noted that the employees had not received similar payments in the past, and that the transactions surrounded the date of a critical referendum on whether parts of Crimea should secede from Ukraine and join Russia — one of Vladimir Putin’s top foreign policy concerns and a flash point with the West.

  • Over five years, the Russian Cultural Centre — an arm of the government that sponsors classes and performances and is based in Washington, DC — sent $325,000 in checks that banking officials flagged as suspicious. The amounts were not consistent with normal payroll checks and some of the transactions fell below the $10,000 threshold that triggers a notice to the US government.

  • The Russian Embassy in Washington, DC, sent more than $2.4 million to small home-improvement companies controlled by a Russian immigrant living not far from there. Between 2013 and March 2017, that contractor’s various companies received about 600 such payments, earmarked for construction jobs at Russian diplomatic compounds. Bankers told the Treasury they did not think those transactions were related to the election but red-flagged them because the businesses seemed too small to have carried out major work on the embassy and because the money was cashed quickly or wired to other accounts.

Steve Bannon: Former Trump aide strikes deal to avoid grand jury appearance in Russia probe

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has struck a deal to speak with special counsel Robert Mueller and his team investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 election. 

Mr Bannon, who was recently disavowed by President Donald Trump, will discuss his time with the Trump campaign and White House directly with the investigators, and will bypass questioning in front of a grand jury. 

Mr Mueller's team had secured a subpoena to compel Mr Bannon to testify, which could have forced him to speak with the grand jury. 

FBI agents reportedly showed up at Mr Bannon's home in Washington, DC last week with the subpoena, only to find out that the former White House employee had secured the legal representation of William Burck hours earlier, according to reports.

 The nuke popcorn is awful.

 I need a good old oil popper....

and some brewer's yeast, or jalapeno butter.....

A pot with a lid, some olive oil, some kernels. That's all you  need.

It's true. Heat needs to be carefully moderated with olive oil. I put my stovetop's setting at 6 and then once the popping starts reduce it to 4. But I find the flavor is better with Olive Oil. If you overheat the oil it will create a terrible flavor which will be absorbed by the popcorn. A good alternative is grape seed oil, which also makes for a nice flavor (not quite as nice as olive oil, but better than canola or corn) and has a decent temperature threshold.

We're going to need a lot of popcorn with all of these goings on. Drip Drip Drip was a good name for this thread when it started. It's now a full fledged ongoing garden hose. Before it all ends I suspect that it will be somewhere in the range of Niagra Falls.

I'm unsure. On one hand his recent banishment for corn-holing McConnell could indicate he will go full rebel, but on the other he has zero hope of a political future as the biggest turn-coat since Ben Arnold. His only potential patron now is Trump. Only source of pardon too. He may be thinking he will use this meeting as a source of information on what Mueller has and doesn't have, or at least the ability to pretend he has, and has imagined himself worming his way back between the warm and cozy butt-cheeks of Trump's administration. 

 The bigger the fall...the greater the desperation. There's just no telling what he is thinking.

Books! Books for alt-right, books for crazies, books for students, and he knows there will be no pardon, no one even knows if a pardon will get past the SC. He's worth enough money he can go quietly into the night, the only thing screwing that up is jail and he gets out if the poop is good enough. Anyone's guess Mark.

I don't expect that Bannon has the good sense to just "fade off into the sunset".  Like Trump, the huge money he has made, is only important as a number, on the scoreboard.  Both Bannon, and Trump, have ginormous Superegos, that will prevent them from quitely seeking the limelight, and the affirmation of their adoring fanboys and girls.........  They are both hard-wired to have their egos stroked by the masses, often and fully!!

It’s one thing to invoke the Jeff Sessions Privilege when questioned by Devin Nunes. Everyone knows it doesn’t exist, but neither does the inclination for smacking the knuckles for staying silent. 

Refusing to answer questions from a grand jury is a different beast, and Mueller will not bend over and play along with that bullshit. The House and Senate committee investigations are worthless kabuki theater. Pure masturbation. The grand jury is a real investigation.

Definitely the sense that I get. The only reason Nunes threw the subpoena flag was the threat of Mueller hanging over him and it was all going to come out anyway. He's personally and politically fucked regardless.

Trump doesn't really "make up". They either kiss the ring, like Cruz, or they are ignored like Kelly.

Somewhere in the middle is Mitt "Reek" Romney.

Major news sources touched most of this. The new angle in your link: the trail of your two articles goes to David Keane meeting Torshin at the NRA's 2013 convention in Houston. Torshin had a big junkett to Moscow in Dec. 2015, also with Keane, Sheriff David Clarke, and other NRA figures. I'm guessing that Butina is an operative.

Keane works at The Washington Times, owned by Rev. Sun  Myung Moon's org. (Korean anti-communist religious types). Go figure.

Perhaps the sheer number of shady gotta wonder at least a bit money transactions, meetings, trips, and etc by Members of the Gropenfuhrer team  means absolutely nothing. 

On the other hand, I have paying attention to presidential politics since the sixties and I have never heard any such accusations of similar connections to any other president or his team. 

Is it wrong to be asking, “Your team sure does spend a lot of time fraternizing and doing business with the Russians.  Could  you explain individually and in detail why a few dozen  of these meetings and transactions should not be considered frightening?”

Maybe it is all innocent. Maybe the women who think Gropenfuhrer sexually assaulted them just misunderstood his intentions. Maybe the $25,000 donation to the Florida prosecutor who suddenly stopped investigating Trump U was in no way related to stopping. Maybe Gropenfuhrer was referring to the lack of centralized sewage systems in Haiti and Africa. Maybe Grabbing them by Tre pussy meant befriending their pets to win women’s  hearts. Maybe Gropenfuhrer was just kidding around when he said “till death do us part” the first couple times he got married. Maybe he just gave the porn star $130,000 because he is a businessman trying to make America Great again. Maybe he really believes the crowds at his inauguration were as large as he claims. Maybe that wouldn’t be insanity. Maybe his tax returns show how wonderfully generous he is and how he has sjwsys paid huge amounts of taxes. Maybe he was just kidding around about Obama playing golf too much.

FBI looking into whether Russian banker gave money to NRA to support Trump: report

  When you want to control a whorehouse it's more efficient to compromise the pimp than the whores. More likely it was just garden variety political money laundering though. Directly approaching US politicians is, for Putin, a tricky business. I suspect Putin realizes that. He wanted better relations with the west, not worse.

  A speculation: Putin may known the dangers associated with monkeying with a monkey house from the get-go but felt it a tactical necessityy due to the possibility we would do something real stupid in Syria or the Ukraine. Hillary is a strident Russophobe. Spent a great deal of effort trying to get a revolution in the Ukraine. Assigned McFall as the Russian ambassador, a man consumed with distaste for Russians. It's not real easy for Putin to sell military adventures domestically. They must end far sooner for him than for us. They aren't all that rich and have big domestic issues. The Rooskies were getting pounded with low oil prices, courtesy of the Sauds and the only rational reason for the Sauds to do that is over Syria.  The sooner Syria was wrapped the sooner the Sauds would give up on it and seek to restore higher oil prices.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Hope Hicks during an interview with Reuters in Washington

Taken Wed 17 Jan

http://edition.cnn.com/2018/01/18/politics/hope-hicks-house-intelligence-testimony-delayed/index.html

(CNN)Hope Hicks' highly anticipated testimony before the House Intelligence Committee was abruptly delayed Thursday amid questions about whether the White House communications director would be able to respond to inquiries about topics after the campaign season, four sources told CNN.

****

The committee made the decision to delay Hicks' appearance in order to give investigators time to sort out with the White House what she could and could not discuss, one of the sources said. She is still expected to speak with the panel at a later date.
The White House and an attorney for Hicks did not respond to request for comment.
On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House was cooperating with the congressional investigations.
