      Onlybqual for DCI is a political obe, whomever the POTUS is wants to put his own guy in the seat to at least feel he had a handle on the Company. Truth is, the Agency’s owned and operated by professional spooks who’ve been there and are as embedded as the stains in the runner by the coffee shop.
      I feel the last great pro Company-spook was Casey, his lineage in the business went back to the OSS. Carter tried to gut the Agency with Turner and he did do some damage. They ain’t stooooopid, they learned from Turner and built s lot of protective walls to dhield their heart from political hacks. You can bet that anyone Obama threw at them was largely a seat warmer, last thing Barry wanted was some major embarrassment to suddenly appear on the horizon so don’t kick the sleeping dog.
      All bets are off on Hellary but for a number of should-be-obvious reasons I’m betting she’ll lrt the Company keep on being the Company, far too many buried bodies to go turning over desks in Langley. She may huff and puff but she needs them more than they need her.

        Oh yeah, if Hildabeast goes on the warpath of social justice within the Company/NSA look for things around Hildabeast to go south fast.
        Casey, was the best cowboy for the Company. Remember what happened in Lebanon when Hamas blow up the Russian Embassy? The Russians took very direct action, and I won’t go into the gory details. Casey said, we are next, cause we don’t operate like the Russian…….
        Czar, hold that thought. Have you ever heard the story of Ho Chi Minh after WW2, 7 colt .45s and a autograph picture of Gen. MacAuthur???

          No, don’t recall the Ho story though the OSS had a team working directly with Ho during WWII attacking Japanese facilities in VN. Ho was a Communist but wanted aid from the US, US decided to,stick with the French in their colonial pursuits though. If only…

          Russians ALLEGEDLY sent a Spetznaz team in, identified the perps and wiped them andvwhat family members they could find right off the face of the earth. Russians and I share the same philosophy: You can’t make someone love you but you can sure mske them fear you. None of the Russian’s stuff was touched again.

    C-R-A-P, gotta make lobg drive today to go to a meeting with the team that’s supposed to be managing my GGS’s Individualized Educational Program at his school. Once again they’ve done the paperwork but aren’t following through. This has been going on for about three years now, pure passive resistance on their part.
    This time a muchly pissed Czarina, who did IEPs for a state institution under Federal receivership for years, will be going and asking very pointed questions. Their reactions and the speed with which they rectify the problems will determine where we go next. We are at the point of filing a Federal lawsuit and quite possibly seeing if we could throw a solid whammy into them by making it a class-action suit, tell me that in a largely minority school there aren’t lots of parents whose children need but haven’t been receiving what they and the Feds deem to be ‘an appropriate education’. There are things I’d rather do with my money than hire a lawyer who specializes in this but I am really tired of having my GGS at the dirty end of the stick and the school playing me for a fool – and so badly.
    If people would just do what they are paid to do………

    Not elegant writing, but a decent read:

    In the end, every American knows how Hillary intends to destroy the United States of America. If she reaches the White House, Americans will be sold down the river in favor of aliens, Muslims and criminals.

    With Donald Trump as president, warts and all, history will show him to be the Teddy Roosevelt of the 21st century. It’s in the hands of the American voters.

          As an Assistant Secretary of the Navy he helped get us into the Spanish–American War. His critics say it was because he was enamored with the idea of heroics on the battlefield. As president, he gave almost all his rough rider buddies cabinet positions. He was the first social progressive president and used the Antiquities Act to arbitrarily seize millions of acres of land.

          Woodrow Wilson was the Wall Street backed candidate, and TDR was funded by the same people as Woodrow Wilson. It was the original splitter strategy for what we saw this last year. Woodrow Wilson gave us the Federal reserve and IRS. Taft was against it. If anything Trump is more like Taft.

    Bombshell New Evidence Reveals Likely Link Between Voting Machines And Clinton Foundation

    The McCarthy group is a major donor to the Clinton Foundation – apparently donating 200,000 dollars in 2007 – when it was the largest owner of United States voting machines. Or perhaps the 200,000 dollars went to paying Bill Clinton for speeches?

    Either way, it doesn’t look good.
    But there’s more.

    As the same user notes in this post, Dominion and The Clinton Foundation did a 2.25 million dollar charity initiative in developing nations together called the DELIAN Project.

    According to the project’s own website:

    In 2014, Dominion Voting committed to providing emerging and post-conflict democracies with access to voting technology through its philanthropic support to the DELIAN Project, as many emerging democracies suffer from post-electoral violence due to the delay in the publishing of election results. Over the next three years, Dominion Voting will support election technology pilots with donated Automated Voting Machines (AVM), providing an improved electoral process, and therefore safer elections.

    PS I believe the chap who gathered and connected this information is an attorney which is why he is very careful with the caveats.

      I think we’ll all become very familiar, soon, with PEV (post-electoral violence).

      I am reasonably confident that Trump will win, after months of attempted legal theft of the election by Democrats, and an eventual SCOTUS decision.

      I hope Trump has people and plans in place to deal with the city-burning and mass violence against conservatives that will inevitably occur before next January. It’s where we’re at, now. Hopefully by next summer, he will have managed, somehow, to calm the feral savages on the Left.

    I just had a strange and frightening experience.

    Stella went out in the back yard, and I fixed her something to eat. When I went to let her in, she was GONE, and my gate was open. I know the gate was closed because I did it myself after the landscapers left yesterday.

    I started yelling for her on the street. A nice young man with a big curly-haired dog asked me if I had lost a white dog, and that he had seen her. He went with me down the street a few houses, and we found her locked in the back yard of a house that is for sale. I don’t think anyone is living there. The young man said, “How did she get in there?” [CLARIFICATION: The young man and his dog were walking away from me and away from the direction where we found Stella. He asked me what color my dog is, and when I said “white” he told me he had seen her, and offered to go with me to look.]

    Good question. It’s a chain link double gate with a rod that goes into the concrete drive, and a latch at the top (like mine). She followed me home happily.

    Who took her out of my yard, and why? She was wearing a collar, and has tags with my phone numbers on them. My cell number is changed, but my home number is the same. If she was lost, wouldn’t someone call me? And how did my gate open?

    Hillary Clinton views Americans as either one or some combination of these descriptors that have come from her own mouth;

    Deplorable, unredeemable, easily led, stupid, non-producers, super predators, racists, xenophobic, Islamophobic, homophobic, bigots, misogynists, trailer trash, tramps, right-wing conspirators.

    Hillary Clinton sees Americans as either sources of money in her pocket or targets of a campaign of personal destruction. Whatever descriptor Hilary would assign to you or me or anyone we love, HRC has one feeling in common about us as she does her most ardent supporters, we must all be brought to heel, we are all here only to serve Hillary’s quest for power and wealth.

    Last few minutes of Trump’s speech;

    There is no task or project too great, there is no dream outside of our reach. Don’t ever let anyone tell you it can’t be done the future lies with the dreamers not the cynics and the critics. Everywhere I go in this country all I see is the untapped potential waiting to be set free and the biggest element of all is our people. The incredible people of this country, they are waiting, they are waiting and waiting and I think maybe now their time has come.

    But we will realize never that the potential we continue to put on our faith, in the faith of our country, and we have to say the word never will always have to be taken out because we have such tremendous potential. We have to choose the most optimistic path.

    We have to choose to believe, not our politicians, who in many cases truly don’t know what they’re doing but to believe in ourselves and in our country. If we do that, anything is possible. I’m asking America to join me in dreaming big and bold and dream for wonderful things in our future.

    Let’s close the history books on the failures in Washington and lets open a new chapter of success and prosperity for all of our people. We have a divided nation. A seriously divided nation, all of our people that is how we will truly make America great again.

    Can there be a larger gulf in how Hillary and The Donald feel about Americans.

    Trump is fighting for America and Americans, Clinton is fighting for Clinton. Trump loves Americans. Hillary hates Americans.

    I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans __John Podesta

    Everywhere I go in this country all I see is the untapped potential waiting to be set free and the biggest element of all is our people. __Donald Trump

    The election is that simple.

        You know, being the naΓ―ve person I am, still amazed that Hillary is still getting so much support, 40-45% of the votes by the polls. (She should actually be in jail but that is another subject).
        Brings back to mind that when I went up there earlier this year, and saw the huge crowd of support AGAINST the “Militia” types, only to learn that all of those on “that” side were employed one way or another by the government.
        When 40% of the workforce is government employed, you have a huge base already built in, and Lou Dobbs highlighted numbers last night in regards to donating to HRC. 95-100% of donations from Gov. employees, media and “top 10 Universities” go to her.

        This does give hope, one of a few national cases of late where it seems justice is being done.

    Back in the 70’s, I believe it was, I went to this bug museum in Colorado that was fascinating. They did a show on it in Strange Inheritance on FOX BUSINESS. It was so interesting to see where the collection came from and the family who runs it. The insects are from all over with the most interesting coming from S. America or the Congo. They are huge. I was glad to see that it is still open to the public.
