Page 294


Anthony Weiner is in prison, Roy Moore lost his election (unrelated, but thank god), but I'm guessing you're going for pizzagate here?

Top search results for "page 294" and "Weiner" involves:

The ever glorious New York Post, JD on twitter, AR15.com and a link the the subreddit The_Donald, known for being infested by russian trolls and Alex Jones followers.

You do know Justice.gov is a government website right? All you had to do was go to the link, but you asked googled to tell you what you are supposed to think? Are you an NPC?

I read the page, didn't know what he wanted to point out until I googled "page 294" at which point it all became very clear.

I also remember the report from back in june when I came across this piece:

https://www.vox.com/2018/6/14/17465186/ ... ve-summary

Oh, and Strzok was fired in August over his bias in text messages.

I don't think you read 294. Page 294 in the pdf viewer isnt 294 on the document. It is 323.

I liked your post before the edit better. More condescending tone in that one.

Anyway, my point was about the list of items on page 294 where the final entry in Coleman's notes read:

(3) Wiener [sic]–texting 15 yo –Sexually Explicit
9/26 –Federal SW –IPhone/IPAD/Laptop
Initial analysis of laptop –thousands emails
Hillary Clinton & Foundation
Crime Against Children

This last part is what sent people flying over the internet "Pizzagate confirmed!!!oneoneone!!!" as if there's no chance it's related to his dick picks.

In the end, I think the Kavanaugh confirmation came down to what many people said: it's not that Republicans didn't believe Ford, it's that they didn't care. And they didn't care about the many other reasons to be skeptical of him:
As a matter of public interest, Kavanaugh’s drunken adolescent assault has now eclipsed his extremely murky personal finances, including a lifestyle far beyond his salary and up to $200,000 of debts that recently suddenly vanished; his possible addiction to sports gambling; his unequivocal opposition to reproductive rights and unions; his belief that a president is exempt from criminal indictment; the list of sexually graphic questions he prepared for Kenneth Starr to ask Bill Clinton during the Clinton impeachment proceedings; and the hundreds of thousands of pages of documents relating to his work in the Bush administration which the Republicans are refusing to release – covering, among other things, his role in formulating torture policy, the theft of Democratic Party papers and authorising warrantless wiretapping.


In other news, we are so fucked:
The authors found that if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current rate, the atmosphere will warm up by as much as 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 degrees Celsius) above preindustrial levels by 2040, inundating coastlines and intensifying droughts and poverty....Avoiding the most serious damage requires transforming the world economy within just a few years, said the authors, who estimate that the damage would come at a cost of $54 trillion. But while they conclude that it is technically possible to achieve the rapid changes required to avoid 2.7 degrees of warming, they concede that it may be politically unlikely.


Edit to add another good read, Naomi Klein in response to the report from the Times last week about Trump's inheritance:
You can claim to be a wealth-creator, sure. But because you didn’t actually create the wealth yourself — you inherited it — other rationales are required for why you deserve still more, while others should get far less. That’s where uglier ideas come in, about one’s inherent superiority, about a greater deservedness that apparently flows from being a member of a particularly good family, with better values, better breeding, a better religion, or as Trump so often claims, “good genes."

So Ivanka and Jared blithely take control over large parts of the U.S. government, despite having no relevant experience and never having been elected to anything. And when Eric and Don Jr. announced last year that they would be opening a chain of boutique hotels, the name they selected was telling indeed. It would be called “Scion,” a defiant celebration of the idle heirs to dynastic families if ever there was one. It seems that the trust fund set is tired of pretending that they have earned their good fortune and are instead ready to claim it openly for what it is: a birthright.
