Walt @7- That was a concept evaluation platform. The problem back then was you needed a 747 for the batteries and capacitors. Now we have small ones on ships and trucks.

The Zumwalts are built for high energy weapons in their 'gun' mounts, that's why they generate so much power. The air special ops will be live testing an airborne turret on a 130 very soon. The work on them for fighters is crazy high tec.

The F35 already has a darth vadar helmet. A year of parts replenishment and regular tempo training will do wonders for readiness. ;-)

Walt

Thanks Don. I was there when the fist one was built on the 707 airframe. Proof of concept if you will. Yup, them the program went on to the 747 you mention. After that , the idea was to make the system smaller. I bet the range has improved after all this time.
But that system should be in working range of that nutjob today. HELL! If the launch something, and it has a "failure" shortly thereafter, blame it on poor workmanship.
There is no excuse if something N.Korea fires off hits an intended target in anger.
The tools exist to stop it.

Bill Tozer

I had one lingering question. Loretta and Bubba played footsie on the tarmac before the DNC convention. The denied FISA request (the first one) was reported to happen in June. That word June jumped off the page at me. When was the Tango on the Tarmac? What was the date of the first FISA request? Which came first?

My, my. An 20 second internet search found someone who thinks like me. Go figure.

Dr REBANE @7:53

Agree. Trump has been hammered 24/7 for months by the Leftists quoting reports chalk full of nothing but anonymous sources, former unnamed Intel officers, current unnamed persons close to the White House, "sources" in the FBI, sources here, sources there, blah, blah, blah...every day...but no names attached.

Now, out of the blue when the tables are turned, they DEMAND a name be linked to a "credible source". They demand hard cold facts and demand it now. Beam me up, Scottie.

Walt

Don. Since you seem to be "in the know", I have a question. Every so often I tune into the ISS feed and watch the "space cam". And like clockwork, the moment something "wild" shows up, NASA cuts the feed. From things apparently leaving Earth, or wild changes in direction, to big objects.(real big) "Sorry, a problem with the video has occurred". ya.. Right..

Any educated thoughts? I bet the people that go to ISS have to sign a nondisclosure agreement to keep their mouth shut about anything the happen to see out the window.

Anyone want a definition of the word alleged? I am alleging that Todd Juvinall was seen throwing puppies off the Broad Street Bridge. Todd, prove me wrong.

PaulE 902pm - In general, negatives are hard to prove.

Walt

GREAT JOB Paul for proving my point of just a few days ago. You don't pay attention to what others post here for YOUR reading pleasure. I put that link up just for you about an hour ago. At least you found it all by yourself. So I must repeat myself.
Why get a warrant when you don't need to? Who would know? Just send a minion to listen in.
A few clicks on a snoop computer and start the recorder.
Now don't forget that "O" changed the rules on an executive order that relaxed the rules of who could see what. Instead of a chosen few MANY could gain access to that info. Now WHY would "O" do that just two weeks before leaving office?? DO TELL.....

Don Bessee

Sorry Walt, my news feeds are of more terrestrial verity. ;-)

Walt

Hay Paul! how bout this Russian connection?
http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/06/exclusive-dem-super-lobbyist-podesta-got-170k-to-end-us-sanctions-on-russian-bank/
"Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta was paid $170,000 over a six-month period last year to represent Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, seeking to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned."

And LIBS go ballistic over a conversation with a diplomat?

Todd Juvinall

No allegation Paul Emery, I did toss a few puppies off the Broad Street Bridge. And they crushed the skulls of some of your pothead friends.

General Flynn's conversation with the Rooskie Ambassador took place in the Trump Tower. It was hacked then the transcript given to the Washington Post. U think that is a fact of truth not a allegation. Therefore Obama wiretapped the Trump team.

Paul Emery

Walt

So who is the "Center for Responsive Politics" ? What secret means did they use to get that information?

Paul Emery

So George you are ignoring the Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections” report authorized by all intelligence agencies.

Todd Juvinall

Clapper said here is no evidence of Rooskie/Trump. Good to know.

Bill Tozer

Bubba and Loretta doing the belly bump on the tarmac.....allegedly

https://www.worldnewspolitics.com/2017/03/05/fisa-request-trump-came-secret-meeting/

I like timeline.

Todd, I have thrown countless gunny sacks of puppies and kittens off the bridge.....on the way to Cool. Noticed they put higher fences up so it's harder to loss bodies off the bridge now, FYI.

Paul Emery

Bill

the information I have about Todds Puppy tossing comes from highly reliable souses.

Don Bessee

Hell ya you poor ol' parrot for the democratic party, shout it nasty @ 958. The real question is have you stopped burning all those puppies and kitties in your druid sacrifices with your 'nymphs' (certainly a flexible term)?
;-)

Paul Emery

We don't burn puppies Don. We're vegetarian Druids. We sacrifice pumpkins and zucchini's, all organic Been that way around here for many years Don if you've paid any attention. The meat eating Druids have all gone to Idaho to be with their own kind. It's better that way according to George. Just like the great Red evacuation from Nevada County that's happening right now.

Paul Emery

Of course organic pumpkins and zucchini's so as not to put toxins in the air. All done with proper permits and never in fire season.

Bill Tozer

9:58 on: Yep, no reason to doubt it. Todd did not deny it. The way I see it, as long as it isn't a possum, all other furry friends are fair game. I must warn the reader that if you got a big big ex wifie-pooh to dispose of, you can throw your back out lifting the body over the overpass fence. Live and learn.

You know, I like this Bubba and Loretta conspiracy theory. Makes sense and it's fun. Hillary leaked about 3 days ago through unnamed surrogates that the media did not do its job investigating the Russian thang. In fact, she said that a bunch of times during the final months of the race....if memory serves me right. She extorated the media to dig up the dirt of the Russian connection after Wikileaks.

Then, the next day after her latest leak (whine), Botox Nancy blasted the press for not digging into the Russian Connection during the final days and hitting paydirt.....a nice big October Surprise, I reckon. All this happened since Friday. Nancy's was parroting the new HRC spin (blame), some parts word for word.

Did Obama do it for My Gal to protect his legacy? Nobody thought Trump would win, but maybe Hillary saw the race tightening with inside polling. The Trump campaign saw movement and even Bubba said he felt something on the campaign trail was not right after Oct. 11th. He could smell it, I could smell it, Pat Cadell could smell it even though the MSM polling was not showing it.

But, I will go with Walt. Heck, just grap the right dude and he can bug any phone you tell him to....off the record and off the books of course. You don't need no stinkin' permission from no stinkin' court and the last thing you want to do is do through the proper channels. Who needs that bull pucky??

It was Mr. Green in the library with the candlestick. Or, it was the dude on the grassy knoll. It was the "some dude" that did it. That's my story and I am sticking to it. My mind is now closed, end of story.

Well, putting a flame to the insides of an organic pumpkin (not in fire season) where I come from is called Halloween night. Go figure.

Don Bessee

Lets all give thanks for 55% of real people recognizing that the media is waaay biased and untrustworthy. Just another step from fakenewsman to very fake news man poor ol' PE. Come on, its OK to say you are just a tool of the socialists media machine. Heck, admitting to that should get you lots of street cred. ;-)

Bill Tozer

@ 10:07

The way I see it, as long as it ain't an opossum, all puppies, kittens, and the rest of our furry friends are fair game. We have all learned that sacrificing Mr. Possum will get the angry mob up in arms, drag ya out from the jailhouse, and get ya hung from the nearest tree.

Bill Tozer

Walt got it right. You don't need a stinkin' court order to bug a phone. Just get the right dude off the record and off the payroll and it's easy as pie. You got to be nuts to go through the proper channels and go through all that bull pucky to do a little eavesdropping. No paper trail. Happens everyday, duh.

Walt

OH Yaaa.. The "Possum people". Good memory Bill.

Paul shows that facts don't mean squat to him. Plenty have been given, yet if it doesn't fit his narrative, they are meaningless.

My my my. Well, it appears we have all been snookered. This entire Russian thang may have been one big hoax. All fake news. I feel stupid. No more defending or arguing when something comes out in the paper. No mas. All the hype was all smoke and mirrors. No collusion, no multiple agency investigations, no nothing.

All fake news. Trump was right. It's not fake news, it's very fake news. Egg on all our faces. It was one big whooper that wasted our time and energy.

'Stole' Russian Malware, Uses It to 'Misdirect Attribution' of Cyber Attacks...

Now this is clever. Hack the computer and then leave behind some Russian Malware to be discovered by investigators. I think it was old Russian malware that was discovered on the DNC computer. Could this have been a CIA signature, "old Russian malware"? Now used as proof that Russia hacked the election?

Let the oil flow! The federal judge hearing the last desperate attempt to halt the use of the now completed Dakota access pipeline has ruled against the eco warriors. Oil will be running through the pipeline within a week. A 100 million dollar boon for the state. ;-)

Paul Emery

George, It doesn't matter what I say it's the assessment of the intelligence community that I'm inquiring about your support.

Don Bessee

Well poor ol' PE, I would say everyone agrees with at least part of what you said @ 1255. ;-)

Walt

Maybe Paul can tell us how Gen. Flynn's conversation got out of Trump Tower, and transcribed and given to the press if there was no bugging.

Paul Emery

Can anybody answer the question as to why would Trump ask Congress to uncover wiretap info that he already has?

Don Bessee

Poor ol' PE misses the point entirely. Your Russia thing is over. Congress has subpoena power and is run by friendlies. It will be fun to watch 0's freak show come swear in. Ms. Jerret did the president ever speak of wiretapping the President? Attorney General Lynch did you ever talk to the former president about wiretapping the President. Fun times. ;-)

George Rebane

PaulE 1255pm - You didn't answer how you concluded I was ignoring the report (your main point). Since I claim not to be ignoring it, it is up to you to demonstrate how I am in order for your assertion to hold.

Paul Emery

George

Trump took advantage of the information provided by Wikileaks which was allegedly provided by the Russians as a major part of his campaign. This was the source of the truly damning information about the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign. It's a speculation how many votes that shifted but there is no doubt Trump took advantage of the stolen information.

George what is your speculation as to why Trump does not reveal the information that he to make the statement that "Obama has been wiretapping the Trump Tower?"

Trumps tweet

" Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"

Todd Juvinall

Still no proof or facts the Russian did anything. All guesses. So Paul Emery where are those facts? And since Flynn was wiretapped in the Trump Tower, would that not be proof Obama did it?

Paul Emery

Walt

they were likely bugging the Russians which is what they are supposed to do. Flynn was just an idiot to think they weren't

Todd Juvinall

Trump Tower was the location. Inside Trump's property. What is it you don't understand? Partisan Paul, PP.

Paul Emery

I'm not sure it's been established where the "bug" took place. If it was to the Russians it was fair game. It's not like the old days Todd. They can bug phones from anywhere. Flynn was an idiot to to think the call was not being bugged.

Todd Juvinall

Oh we have the facts and you simply are so partisan you refuse to agree with the truth. And the law says that if a American citizen is on one end of a call that must be redacted. And it was not. In fact it was what was leaked.

Walt

Bugging the Russians is one thing. Putting what Flynn said on paper, even recording what he said is the real crime. The law states that the American end of ANY pilfered conversation is to be redacted, and WHO that person is, is also forbidden to be revealed.
Look THAT up Mr. "newsman".

Todd Juvinall

Oh Paul Emery. Walt stumped you and put your argument in the trash. So you try and make some point about Wikileaks. That was sent into the public square not by Trump was it? Of course not. So once again apples and oranges. And if the spooks want to arrest Assuage, then do it and stop crying that he is releasing more emails.

Paul Emery

Stolen material used for personal gain.

Don Bessee

Man that is pathetic, even for poor ol' PE @ 333, 355. Our resident fakenewsman has now turned country lawyer. Love your comic stylings there ya poor ol' pollhead.;-)

Bill Tozer

Stolen material used for personal gain? PE, what gain did Trump receive from stolen material?? Please clarify. Quantify please. What personal gain exactly?? How much money? How did Trump gain. You assume he gained, please PROVE IT?

Also, please prove that Obama did not bug Trump's phone. Otherwise, your assumptions are up to your pathetic normal.

You make a statement that stolen material was used for personal gain. Put up or shut up. Prove it. Prove it. Prove it. Back up that wild off the wall statement.

Gregory

Paul, perhaps you can tell me how anyone intent on treason would discuss their conspiracies again and again with enemy agents, sometimes in sight and earshot of Democrats, yet no one heard anything? Multiple continual contacts throughout the campaign?

One might also wonder why Pelosi loudly denied ever meeting that Russian ambassador... until shown the photo of a group meeting over a jolly nice meal, sitting eye to eye with the very same fellow across a narrow table. Why would she lie about that, Paul, unless she had something to hide?

If you need some mansplaining about human memory and, in addition, why one needs to be hyperspecific and careful about the language used when making wild claims of criminal conspiracy or treason, just ask.

Paul Emery

Very simple answer Bill. He took information from the stolen emails and used it o enhance his campaign against Clinton. That's a no brainier. Try again.

Todd Juvinall

PE has lost it.

Paul Emery

Trump admits defeat on this one. Tail is between his legs.


SAN FRANCISCO, March 7 (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday said it would voluntarily dismiss its own appeal of a Seattle federal court ruling that had suspended President Donald Trump’s first executive order concerning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Don Bessee

Sounds like our resident very fakenewsman is a no brainer @ 516, 521. The President signed a new immigration EO so the 9th circuit case is mooted mr country lawyer or did you miss that poor ol' PE? ;-)

Paul Emery

It's a substantially different from the One that the courts threw out.

Walt

Just not your night Paul. Every one of your "breaking news" is pretty much round filed
on arrival.
But from what was on the tube tonight, Sen. Tom Cotton knows what's going on with the Trump Tower leak. The facts will come out soon enough.

Paul Emery

Thanks fault for following up on this I'll look forward to seeing your information that proves Obama wiretapped trumps tower

Don Bessee

Poor ol' democratic parrot PE- You were quick to abandon your earlier no brain claims. The EO is not substantially different just nuanced and Iraq made a side deal to give us more data on people. ;-)

Paul Emery

That's Thanks Walt Poor speech recognition

Paul Emery @ 5:16 pm.

Paul, please quantify or qualify Trump's enchancement. Nice try. You said Trump enchanted his campaign against Clinton. What proof do you have that Wikileaks enchanced the Trump campaign???? Seriously, I would like to know. Whether you switch the word 'gain' for 'enhance' , you still have not backed up your statement. Please try again and prove your statement. Thank you

Don Bessee

Don't hold your breath BT@ 636. ;-)

Paul Emery

Well look at all the Wikileaks information that Trump used in his campaign especially the information about the DNC. If that private information hadn't been stolen it would not have been known. Therefore Trump used stolen material to enhance his campaign message that Hillary and the Dems were crooks.

Bill Tozer

Don.
Question. Is there any proof that a FISA request was filed? Need exact date and copy and name of person who signed off on the request. Or name of person who signed off that the alleged FISA request was indeed submitted. Otherwise, it was just another story printed by the NYT. Been away today and it was nice.

Also Don, is there any proof Russia hacked Podesta's computer? The FBI was not allowed to examine Podesta's computer, only the Hillary Campaign hand picked third party. The Intel reports did not claim the Russia hacked the computer as fact. No definitive fact. A lot of legalize, but no conclusion as fact that anyone in Intel put their John Hancock on.

Paul Emery

Bill

What you are writing about is exactly why we need an independent investigator. Thanks for making my point.

Todd Juvinall

No investigation needed. No facts, no proof, nothing at all. Simply a ploy by the democrats and lamestream media hacks.

Another one from our liar in chief

"122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!" Trump tweeted — from both his personal account and the official White House account, @POTUS.

So in the 15 years between when Guantanamo opened in 2002 and when the latest data was collected in 2016, 122 detainees were transferred out of the prison who the government believes have returned to some sort of terrorist activity.

However, just nine of those transfers happened during the Obama administration. The remaining 113 — or over 92 percent — happened under Bush.

A friendly reminder that the Trump/Russia scandal is only in the top of the 2nd. The various details from the Steele Dossier are slowly being confirmed, a little bit more and more every day.

Bill Tozer

There is no Russian-Trump connection, thus no scandal. Just about everything printed in lamestream media on the topic has been, to date, proven false, unsubstantiated, and wishful thinking on the part of the Establishment insiders such as our local Establishment Parrot.

Absolutely no Russian connection outside of the direct line of Hillary Clinton-Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta-Clinton Foundation-Russian connection. Too many direct ties and connections to list. This involves sitting on the board of the largest oil company in Russia, ties to Russian banks, direct ties to Russian owned companies, 140 million dollar donation to the Foundation, Bubba receiving $500,000 for speaking to Russian owned banking interests while HRC was Sec of State and said foreign interests having submitted applications for pending approval by the US Gov't.

PE @ 6:59 pm
Are you saying we need an independent investigation because the CIA, NSA, FBI, Justice Department, and all intelligence agencies have found no concrete evidence of Russian hacking of the DNC, the DCCC, the Clinton Campaign, or proving Russia-Trump collusion?

I remember you decrying that Trump did not have full faith in our Intelligence agencies, including the Directors of the CIA and NSA. You were not incredulous that Trump brushed aside their findings?

So, Paul, what changed your mind? Has new conclusive concrete information been brought to light that you are privy to that the US government with our best and brightest (with unlimited budgets) have not found?

Paul, what has changed your mind? You aren't partaking of the opiate of the masses again are you? Did your fake news feeds say it was the one armed man on the grassy knoll who convinced you to say there is something there that all our spooks, investigators, and Inlel collectors have not found??? Did Botox Nancy or Maxine Waters or other such pillars of intellectual giants convince yo that there's sometig there?

Bill Tozer

https://patriotpost.us/articles/47836

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, writing for National Review, explains:

First, as Obama officials well know, under the FISA process, it is technically the FISA court that “orders” surveillance. And by statute, it is the Justice Department, not the White House, that represents the government in proceedings before the FISA court. So, the issue is not whether Obama or some member of his White House staff “ordered” surveillance of Trump and his associates. The issues are (a) whether the Obama Justice Department sought such surveillance authorization from the FISA court, and (b) whether, if the Justice Department did that, the White House was aware of or complicit in the decision to do so. Personally, given the explosive and controversial nature of the surveillance request we are talking about — an application to wiretap the presidential candidate of the opposition party, and some of his associates, during the heat of the presidential campaign, based on the allegation that the candidate and his associates were acting as Russian agents — it seems to me that there is less than zero chance that could have happened without consultation between the Justice Department and the White House.
And as talk radio host Mark Levin, a constitutional attorney and former chief of staff to Attorney General Edwin Meese III in the Ronald Reagan administration, put it, “The issue isn’t whether the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign or transition of surrogates; the issue is the extent of it.”

Todd Juvinall

Liar in Chief Todd Did you read Trumps Tweet?

Russ

Good Morning Paul, this is for you:

BILL BINNEY’S NOT JUST ANY WHISTLEBLOWER: NSA Whistleblower Backs Trump Up on Wiretap Claims.

President Donald Trump is “absolutely right” to claim he was wiretapped and monitored, a former NSA official claimed Monday, adding that the administration risks falling victim to further leaks if it continues to run afoul of the intelligence community.

“I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored,” Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency who resigned in protest from the organization in 2001, told Fox Business on Monday. Everyone’s conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said.

Binney resigned from NSA shortly after the U.S. approach to intelligence changed following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He “became a whistleblower after discovering that elements of a data-monitoring program he had helped develop — nicknamed ThinThread — were being used to spy on Americans,” PBS reported.

It’s not really a “wiretap” except notionally — I think basically they just store everything, then query a database about what they’re interested in.

Plus: “Binney did say events such as publication of details of private calls between President Trump and the Australian prime minister, as well as with the Mexican president, are evidence the intelligence community is playing hardball with the White House.”

BillT - Mark Levin, now there is an unbiased echo chamber source! Snopes does not agree with your, 2:43AM, post. The last line of the Snopes Clinton/Uranium link says it all: "for the sake of accuracy it’s crucial to differentiate between partisan accusations and what we actually know about it — however little that may be."

The "expert" referred to in your 8:40 is hardly a credible source in this matter. He was last with the NSA in 2001, 16 years ago.

Bill Binney was the guy Paul! Knew the NSA inside and out.

Got the bums rush for caring about......psssst.....constitutional limits on surveillance and your right to a shred of privacy on this ball of dirt we all share.


From his Wikipedia entry

Binney was a Russia specialist and worked in the operations side of intelligence, starting as an analyst and ending as a Technical Director prior to becoming a geopolitical world Technical Director. In the 1990s, he co-founded a unit on automating signals intelligence with NSA research chief Dr. John Taggart.[6] Binney's NSA career culminated as Technical Leader for intelligence in 2001. Having expertise in intelligence analysis, traffic analysis, systems analysis, knowledge management, and mathematics (including set theory, number theory, and probability),[7] Binney has been described as one of the best analysts in the NSA's history.[8]


Glowing review of his prowess from another article


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-30/creator-nsa’s-global-surveillance-system-calls-bs-russian-hacking-report


Binney is the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees, the 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker, who mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted Soviet invasions before they happened (“in the 1970s, he decrypted the Soviet Union’s command system, which provided the US and its allies with real-time surveillance of all Soviet troop movements and Russian atomic weapons”).


You would do well to not dismiss him out of hand.
