-Lurid Crime Tales-
Graham: Why Didn't The FBI Warn Trump Like They Warned Feinstein?
[FOX] In order to get Lindsey Graham’s point in this discussion with Harris Faulkner, first you’d have to know about the spy on Dianne Feinstein’s staff. Thanks to the collective silence of most media outlets, the audience for this argument might be somewhat limited ‐ but that doesn’t make it any less powerful. Graham wants to know why the FBI warned Dianne Feinstein about a suspected spy but never bothered to tell Donald Trump about their suspicions over Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.
I’m gonna send a letter to Director Wray next week and ask him what is the policy? Why didn’t you tell president Trump that you had concerns about Carter Page? Is there a double standard here?

If this was a counter-intelligence investigation and not a criminal investigation, the FBI should have told President Trump they had concerns about Papadopoulos and Page. Why didn’t they do for Trump what they did for Feinstein?

Let’s not forget that the penetration in Feinstein’s case was much more significant, too. The warning from the FBI came after the man had been in Feinstein’s employ for "two decades," as the local CBS affiliate noted last week. The FBI had evidence of direct and covert contact between the suspect and China’s intelligence operatives. Feinstein was also a high-value target as chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, with access to the most sensitive information held by the US government, including from our intelligence partners around the globe. And yet, the FBI reached out to Feinstein rather than open a counter-intelligence probe with her as a potential target, even though Feinstein’s family has profited extensively through contacts with China during her tenure.

#3  They had, but if you search, it's been memory-holed:
"The column revealed that the Chinese spy was Feinstein’s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and was a liaison to the Asian-American community.

He even attended Chinese consulate functions for the senator."

#5  It does seem that the Dems want that old [money] bag Feinstein out after all of these recent hit pieces.

Reminds me a wee bit of what they did to HRC when she was running against N'Obama. And, funny, it also concerned China (IIRC, it was about some slimy Clinton donor).

And so, she was rewarded with the position of Sec. of State. A barrel of laughs there.

Bruce Ohr failed to coordinate Inter-agency effort targeting cocaine sales and used car shipments to West Africa and Hez
[Mark Levin] Here’s more from the Daily Caller:

The agent, Derek Maltz, detailed to Levin how illicit American businesses were funneling money to terrorist organizations, and that his suspicion was Ohr either sidelined or ignored his responsibility to track these businesses in order to pursue a political agenda against the Donald Trump campaign.

Maltz called into Levin’s show and explained to the radio host he was the head of his division when there was an initiative against Hezbollah in their cocaine and money laundering activities.

"Major cocaine loads leaving Colombia South America going into West Africa. Cocaine is sold millions and millions of dollars are collected Middle Eastern couriers transporting the cash back to Beiruit, Lebanon. Hezbollah militants protecting the money going into the banks. Money transfers back to America. Going into bank accounts," Maltz said.

He went on to say, "Middle Eastern used car businesses taking cash out‐ buying cars at auto auctions‐ sending the cars back down to West Africa to resell for like 20, 25 percent profit, and monies were going right back to Hezbollah to support their overall worldwide initiative."

In 2011, Ohr was head of the Department of Justice’s transnational organized crime strategy. The purpose of the strategy, according to Maltz, was to unite the U.S. government agencies to work against the biggest threats to the United States.

Here’s where he suggests that Ohr was likely too busy with his political agenda against Trump to do his job:
Used cars? I believe the Awan brothers had a used car business in Falls Church VA. I wonder ?

This is also a very big scandal. Thanks obama.

-Short Attention Span Theater-
Time for the Military
Warning. May be offensive to some
[CurmidgeonlySkeptical] A crusty old Army Sergeant Major found himself at a gala event hosted by a local liberal arts college. There was no shortage of extremely young idealistic ladies in attendance, one of whom approached the Sergeant Major for conversation.

"Excuse me, Sergeant Major, but you seem to be a very serious man. Is something bothering you?"

"Negative, ma'am. Just serious by nature."

The young lady looked at his awards and decorations and said, "It looks like you have seen a lot of action."

"Yes, ma'am, a lot of action."

The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation, said, "You know, you should lighten up. Relax and enjoy yourself."

The Sergeant Major just stared at her in his serious manner.

Finally the young lady said, "You know, I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but when is the last time you had sex?”

"1955, ma'am."

"Well, there you are. No wonder you're so serious. You really need to chill out! I mean, no sex since 1955! She took his hand and led him to a private room where she proceeded to "relax" him.

Afterwards, panting for breath, she leaned against his bare chest and said, "Wow, you sure didn't forget much since 1955."

The Sergeant Major said, after glancing at his watch, "I hope not; it's only 2130 now."

-Land of the Free
This Week in Guns, August 11th, 2018


By Chris Covert
Rantburg.com

Note the linked article from the UK Telegraph about a British rifleman who was shot to death by a rifle chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum.

It is important to remember that even as much of the news article features quotes from the British military, it was still assembled and checked by journalists, who if they have a basic knowledge of firearms, it is likely because they were shot to death by one. I trust the Telegraph to deliver factual information the same way I expect Media Matters for America to deliver the truth.

Loads.

Rantburg's summary for arms and ammunition:

Pistol ammunition prices were mixed. Rifle ammunition prices were steady.

Prices for used pistols were mostly lower. Prices for used rifles were mixed.

(August 11th, 2018) For the 13th week running, used AR-15 prices have averaged below $500.

New Lows:

None

Man, you could go deer hunting in the next county over with that.

As for "I trust the Telegraph to deliver factual information the same way I expect Media Matters for America to deliver the truth.", don't be too hard on 'em. Their Mamas let them grow up to be journalists. Poor sumbitches. It's not like they've ever done anything.

Arabia
Israel sees risks, opportunities in Bab el-Mandeb
Threats to international shipping may present Israel with the chance to tighten ranks with Saudi Arabia.

The Israeli Prime Minister, not known for his subtlety, threatened that “if Iran tries to block the strait of Bab el-Mandeb, I am certain that it will find itself confronting an international coalition that will be determined to prevent this, and this coalition will also include all of Israel’s military branches.”

Protecting trade with China is the reason.

China is already the main source of Israeli imports and will soon surpass the United States as the main single nation market for its exports.

Fifth Column
Declassified: Did Rosenstein Make False Statements to the FISA Judge?
Journalist Paul Sperry tweeted on August 5, 2018 that we should look this month for President Donald Trump to "declassify 20 redacted pages of the June 2017 FISA renewal." Sperry is referring to a Portable Document Format file released on July 21, 2018 by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which contains heavily redacted versions of four Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant applications to conduct surveillance of Carter Page, who had been a foreign policy adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump. Even with the redactions, the June 2017 warrant application is damning for deputy United States attorney general Rod Rosenstein.

Pres. Trump tells Democrats not to distance themselves from Pelosi
[Wash Examiner] President Trump on Friday asked Democrats not to distance themselves from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whom he has labeled the face of the Democratic Party.

"Democrats, please do not distance yourselves from Nancy Pelosi. She is a wonderful person whose ideas & policies may be bad, but who should definitely be given a 4th chance. She is trying very hard & has every right to take down the Democrat Party if she has veered too far left!" he tweeted.

Republicans have tried to tie Democratic candidates to Pelosi, who is seen by some in her party as standing in the way of younger leaders, in the lead up to the midterm elections in November.

Centrist and far-left Democratic candidates have spoken out against Pelosi becoming House speaker, which she has said she intends to run for, if Democrats retake majority in the fall.

Vox Says MS-13 Are the Kids Next Door. [VIDEO]
[Victory Girls] Liberal website Vox says that the Trump administration is all wrong about MS-13. Why, the average MS-13 gang member is just your kid next door. He probably lives with his parents, loves social media, and even has an after-school job.

Oh, and one more thing. MS-13 is really an American creation, you blackhearted conservative racists. Own it.

Here’s the video that Hannah Drier and Dara Lind from Vox assembled. They insist that Trump and (conservative) media have told us lies about this gang:

#3  They insist that Trump and (conservative) media have told us lies about this gang. Yeah, just dreamers. Hannah and Dara should talk to police gang units about MS-13.

#4  I'd like to see these two nitwits walk around Maverick Square (East Boston) around midnight.

#5  Cried Hannah to Dara, "A dare?
Ride naked through Maverick Square?"
"What wonderful fun'll
Be had in the tunnel
Recounting what's done to us there!"
"And the unicorns we rode in on!"
"They'll be, like, green with envy on the Green Line."
"I know, and blush bright red on the, uh, Red, right?"

Seriously, is it that bad? Right in the square, I mean?

Yup - pretty heavy MS-13 membership in East Boston. I've read a couple of incidents over the past couple of months which makes it look like a lot of dealing & pimping in the area. Take over a few bars, and there you have it.

#7  They need to get away from it all, like a bike trip through Central Asia America.
