1) The Memo is Released

The FISA memo bomb has been dropped. It pretty much confirmed
everything Republicans had been talking about in interviews for the
past two weeks. If you watched cable news last week you pretty much
know everything that’s in the memo. Is that why the information was
a little – I don’t know – underwhelming? For being billed as a memo
full of classified information, I struggled to find anything in it
that could be considered damaging to national security. That makes
the Democrats, FBI and DoJ look kind of ridiculous in trying to
block it’s release.

But it also makes Republicans look a little ridiculous in all the
build up and hype that led up to Friday’s release. Now, don’t get me
wrong, the information within the memo is interesting. The GOP is
accusing the FBI and DoJ of lying to the FISA court in order to get
a warrant for former Trump advisor Carter Page. They claim that the
Steele Dossier was listed in the initial FISA application, but the
roles of Fusion GPS, the DNC and the Clinton campaign were never
mentioned. If that’s true then the FBI and DoJ were knowingly trying
to pass off partisan opposition research as actual intelligence, AND
they hid the truth from the court, not once, but four times.

This all looks really bad, but it’s also only half of the story.
Democrats have written their own rebuttal memo, and a vote for its
release is expected later today. We can also expect to hear from the
FBI AND DoJ at some point as well. Will The Great Memo Wars of 2018
reveal anything new, or will it descend into a giant “liar liar
pants on fire” slap fight? Either way, more transparency is still
the answer. So get ready for a flood of memos. This is either going
to be very enlightening, or brutally painful.

2) Powerful Super Bowl Ads

A beautiful newborn baby cries and fidgets in her hospital bed. She
is perfect. A nurse lifts her up to comfort her. It’s revealed that
the child is missing both legs below the knee and one arm.

She is still perfect.

Toyota hit the ball out of the park with its compelling Super Bowl
commercial about Paralympic Gold Medalist Lauren Woolstencroft. In
60 seconds, we saw her birth, her struggles to use her mechanical
limbs, her failures, and her victories.

People who believe in eugenics see no quality of life for those born
with deformities. How can they possibly think that after watching
Lauren thrive and go on to win eight gold medals?

In that one minute, Toyota showed the world that all life matters.
It’s important to note that no cars are mentioned in the ad, because
that wasn’t the point. Toyota is transitioning into a “mobility
company” and they wanted to show that the technology they are
developing will help humanity.

Dodge also opted to showcase their new technology, but the carmaker
was heavily criticized for their commercial.

The commercial featured a new Dodge Ram truck helping bring supplies
and volunteers to communities hit by natural disasters. The
controversial part? Dodge used Martin Luther King, Jr’s speech on
serving in the background.

People were outraged that Dodge would use MLK’s words to sell cars.
I don’t see it that way.

I think anytime Martin Luther King Jr’s words are broadcast and
remembered is a good thing.
We need to hear his words, especially now.

Yes, Dodge is selling their new Ram, but they are also selling what
you can do with that vehicle: Serve others.

In 120 seconds, the Toyota and Dodge commercials conveyed the
message that advancements in technology can be used for good—it’s up
to us to use it that way.

3) The Gender-Neutralization of "O Canada"
If progressivism is a disease, Canada is terminally ill with it. The
U.S. prognosis is probably critical condition.

On Wednesday, Canada’s Senate approved changing a line in the
English version of their national anthem, “O Canada,” to make it
gender neutral. The second line of the anthem will now be “True
patriot love in all of us command” rather than the oppressive,
insanely offensive old version, “True patriot love in all thy sons
command.”

Now that their anthem isn’t sexist anymore, Canadians can finally
feel free to sing it again.
Somehow, I doubt the Canadian senators checked with the people
because that’s not how progressives operate. I bet most Canadians
would’ve preferred leaving the anthem alone. They’ve had the song
that way for over a century and no one died of sexism because of it.

Canadian feminist author Margaret Atwood was one of the people
behind this effort. She wrote the novel The Handmaid’s Tale. You can
look that one up for insight into her feelings on tradition, faith,
and conservatism. She’s real subtle.

This is the dark side of progressivism everywhere – it presumes to
know what’s best for the people. But it’s always the agenda of a
few, forced on the majority. Or sometimes the agenda, or feelings of
just one individual. Progressivism thinks it is promoting more
freedom, when often it is tyranny. So, you get things like Michelle
Obama dictating to your local school what cafeteria food it can
serve. Or one mother in Webster Parish, Louisiana who recently got
student-led prayer banned at her daughter’s high school.

Respect for tradition as a stabilizing, enriching agent in society
is one of the key diverging points of the Left and Right in the U.S.
Decades of progressivism chipping away at things like religion, the
flag, the Constitution, and patriotism in general, all the way to
Obama’s apologizing tour of a presidency, has created an enormous
backlash from heartland Americans. To the point that a whole section
of Trump’s State of the Union speech was a lecture on respecting the
flag, anthem, and motto. It’s just sad that we’ve sunk so low that
the State of the Union has turned into a pep rally about who has
more team spirit.

It’s easy to laugh at those Canadians for wimping out on their
anthem. But progressivism is a persistent disease, so don’t think it
can’t happen here.

You can't re-authorize a FISA warrant unless you can prove that you are
getting evidence.

If it was re-authorized (and it was), that's because the surveillance
was bearing fruit. What does it matter who paid for it, as long as it's
getting results?

If a criminal phones in a tip to the police, do the police ignore it
because of where it came from?

Precisely. With no facts with which to refute my statement, Scotty
just resorted to insults and a nonsensical rant.

There is nothing in the memo to prove the major claims of the
Republicans that the dossier sparked the FBI/Mueller Russia
investigation, the House Russia investigation, the Senate Russia
investigation or the Page surveillance. In fact, the memo glaringly
ignores the *sequence* of events which, when laid out in order, prove
the dossier had nothing to do with any of it except as a secondary
presentation.

Btw, all three major Russia investigations have independently proved
the veracity of much of the dossier. Iow, Steele was right all along.

that don't agree with your world view.

Liar. You had a knee jerk reaction to something I wrote. So go
ahead, tell us where I got my facts wrong about the memo. Quote and
explain each point if you like.
Had
he listed any facts
Here's a fact for you. There's nothing in the Nunes memo that proves
the Republicans' major claims about the three Russia investigations or
the Page surveillance and certainly nothing in it that vindicates
Trump.
I would run to them and happily show Swill where he
was wrong. I do it all the time. ;)
You haven't done it yet. Go ahead. I'd like to see you use some
verifiable facts if only to use some red marker on my calendar.

good for you.

I have yet to see anyone win or lose a debate, they just get tired and

1) The Memo is Released
The FISA memo bomb has been dropped. It pretty much confirmed
everything Republicans had been talking about in interviews for the
past two weeks.
Actually, it pretty much disproved everything Republicans have been
saying.
Personally I think the only way to get to the truth is to release the
court transcripts.

If you watched cable news last week you pretty much
know everything that’s in the memo. Is that why the information was
a little – I don’t know – underwhelming? For being billed as a memo
full of classified information, I struggled to find anything in it
that could be considered damaging to national security. That makes
the Democrats, FBI and DoJ look kind of ridiculous in trying to
block it’s release.
But it also makes Republicans look a little ridiculous in all the
build up and hype that led up to Friday’s release. Now, don’t get me
wrong, the information within the memo is interesting. The GOP is
accusing the FBI and DoJ of lying to the FISA court in order to get
a warrant for former Trump advisor Carter Page. They claim that the
Steele Dossier was listed in the initial FISA application, but the
roles of Fusion GPS, the DNC and the Clinton campaign were never
mentioned. If that’s true then the FBI and DoJ were knowingly trying
to pass off partisan opposition research as actual intelligence, AND
they hid the truth from the court, not once, but four times.
This all looks really bad, but it’s also only half of the story.
Democrats have written their own rebuttal memo, and a vote for its
release is expected later today. We can also expect to hear from the
FBI AND DoJ at some point as well. Will The Great Memo Wars of 2018
reveal anything new, or will it descend into a giant “liar liar
pants on fire” slap fight? Either way, more transparency is still
the answer. So get ready for a flood of memos. This is either going
to be very enlightening, or brutally painful.
2) Powerful Super Bowl Ads
A beautiful newborn baby cries and fidgets in her hospital bed. She
is perfect. A nurse lifts her up to comfort her. It’s revealed that
the child is missing both legs below the knee and one arm.
She is still perfect.
Toyota hit the ball out of the park with its compelling Super Bowl
commercial about Paralympic Gold Medalist Lauren Woolstencroft. In
60 seconds, we saw her birth, her struggles to use her mechanical
limbs, her failures, and her victories.
People who believe in eugenics see no quality of life for those born
with deformities. How can they possibly think that after watching
Lauren thrive and go on to win eight gold medals?
In that one minute, Toyota showed the world that all life matters.
It’s important to note that no cars are mentioned in the ad, because
that wasn’t the point. Toyota is transitioning into a “mobility
company” and they wanted to show that the technology they are
developing will help humanity.
Dodge also opted to showcase their new technology, but the carmaker
was heavily criticized for their commercial.
The commercial featured a new Dodge Ram truck helping bring supplies
and volunteers to communities hit by natural disasters. The
controversial part? Dodge used Martin Luther King, Jr’s speech on
serving in the background.
People were outraged that Dodge would use MLK’s words to sell cars.
I don’t see it that way.
I think anytime Martin Luther King Jr’s words are broadcast and
remembered is a good thing.
We need to hear his words, especially now.
Yes, Dodge is selling their new Ram, but they are also selling what
you can do with that vehicle: Serve others.
In 120 seconds, the Toyota and Dodge commercials conveyed the
message that advancements in technology can be used for good—it’s up
to us to use it that way.
3) The Gender-Neutralization of "O Canada"
If progressivism is a disease, Canada is terminally ill with it. The
U.S. prognosis is probably critical condition.
On Wednesday, Canada’s Senate approved changing a line in the
English version of their national anthem, “O Canada,” to make it
gender neutral. The second line of the anthem will now be “True
patriot love in all of us command” rather than the oppressive,
insanely offensive old version, “True patriot love in all thy sons
command.”
Now that their anthem isn’t sexist anymore, Canadians can finally
feel free to sing it again.
Somehow, I doubt the Canadian senators checked with the people
because that’s not how progressives operate. I bet most Canadians
would’ve preferred leaving the anthem alone. They’ve had the song
that way for over a century and no one died of sexism because of it.
Canadian feminist author Margaret Atwood was one of the people
behind this effort. She wrote the novel The Handmaid’s Tale. You can
look that one up for insight into her feelings on tradition, faith,
and conservatism. She’s real subtle.
This is the dark side of progressivism everywhere – it presumes to
know what’s best for the people. But it’s always the agenda of a
few, forced on the majority. Or sometimes the agenda, or feelings of
just one individual. Progressivism thinks it is promoting more
freedom, when often it is tyranny. So, you get things like Michelle
Obama dictating to your local school what cafeteria food it can
serve. Or one mother in Webster Parish, Louisiana who recently got
student-led prayer banned at her daughter’s high school.
Respect for tradition as a stabilizing, enriching agent in society
is one of the key diverging points of the Left and Right in the U.S.
Decades of progressivism chipping away at things like religion, the
flag, the Constitution, and patriotism in general, all the way to
Obama’s apologizing tour of a presidency, has created an enormous
backlash from heartland Americans. To the point that a whole section
of Trump’s State of the Union speech was a lecture on respecting the
flag, anthem, and motto. It’s just sad that we’ve sunk so low that
the State of the Union has turned into a pep rally about who has
more team spirit.
It’s easy to laugh at those Canadians for wimping out on their
anthem. But progressivism is a persistent disease, so don’t think it
can’t happen here.

Certainly and both sides know that will never happen. So, wot's, uh,
the deal? Political football. The gop has no intention of allowing
the public to view both sides of the story and make up its own mind.
That would conflict with their policy of telling their members what
they're supposed to think.

Transcripts are for trial courts. Appelate courts work mostly by passing pieces
of paper around. Does the FISA court have oral arguments or does it put it on
paper? Unless the judges write out opinions to explain their decisions, there's
nothing to explain their decisions: if so, all you get are the requests and a
approval or disapproval.

The judges are not answerable to Congress. They decide for themselves their
procedures.

I don't see how warrant requests could be executive privilege, so Congress
should have access to all the requests, which they then selectively quote.

I think they should release it. Then if it does hurt the FBI show the
public how.

I believe the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act should be made
more public and how congress actually oversees it also made more
public.

Yes, that's why I interjected it below their writing. Sorry for the
confusion if you thought that was aimed at you.

No problem I always like raw data. People should read it for
themselves not just believe the press biased interpretation..
