Assumptions and Timing and Stuff I Think About When Reading

stuff like this here:

The year-long investigation is expected to conclude in the coming weeks, though it could take longer, leaving open the probability it will cast a shadow over Clinton as she accepts the Democratic Party’s nomination for president in Philadelphia this month and launches her general election campaign against Republican Donald Trump.

It's as if McClatchy knows what's going to happen, isn't it? That's a disturbing choice of words for a lot of other reasons besides that, but that's a biggie. Another choice adjective for these words in this particular order is obnoxious. It is obnoxious that any "news" outlet should expect everyone to simply accept that even though she had to be questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, she's still a candidate for the highest office in the country.

“Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was secretary,"

Oh, was that worth mentioning--that the questioning was voluntary? Hm. Maybe Bill got served and went on the tarmac to beg Loretta not to serve his wife? Generally when you're served, or you're about to be served, it's because you're not voluntarily forthcoming.

I am no less furious than I was about all this before this place went offline (again, during a hot storyline developing, IIRC--WTH, admins? Your not being available isn't helping my mood either, doggone it!). The bullshit which has circulated since the story was broken about the airport meeting is deep from all the other "news" outlets, so I'm surprised to see such wording from this particular source. It looks to me like Hillary's been dodging the interview and James Comey was getting sick of her shit, to the point where he recommended she be served to appear. And sweet old Bill got wind of that and put a stop to it.

Hillary Rodham Clinton should not be getting a pass on any of this just because she's running for President. It is precisely because she is running for President that FBI Director James Comey has an obligation to recommend for indictment and Attorney General Loretta Lynch has an obligation to indict. If this were anyone else, the Obama Administration would not be slow-walking this--in point of fact, anybody else would have been put in jail long before now. Mrs. Clinton is a criminal. She cannot be allowed to accept that nomination.

and we, the people, know it.
What remains to be seen is if she will be indicted.
Getting away with it will deliver Trump to the White House and I am sure his choice of china and silver for the dining area will be tasteful.

Yeah, the press has been largely uncritical of things Clinton (or unjustifiably enthusiast in covering BS stories like Benghazi).

Most stories say Bill Clinton's plane just happened to be on the tarmac alongside AG Lynch's plane. But actually, Bill delayed his plane from taking off when he learned Lynch's plane would soon land. So Bill and Secret Service detail trot over to Lynch's plane 75 yards away, past Lynch's FBI detail, and allegedly just walks up the stairs without warning. And according to Lynch, they talk about a half hour about the grand kids, golf, just shooting the shit.

Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Jazus.

What were they afraid of people videoing? Or do you think that they were hoping to keep the meeting unreported? That's my guess and it was lucky that one reporter from Phoenix was there and saw the meeting. If he hadn't been there, would we ever have known about it?
The stories I've read is that Bill had been golfing in Phoenix (in over 100 degree heat) and heard that she was coming to Phoenix and he waited 30 minutes to meet with her.
I think it could be two things
He was warning her off from either issuing her a summons for the FBI to interview her, since she kept putting it off, or
He knew that the optics would look so bad that Lynch would have to recuse herself and then a new prosecutor would have to come in on the case and buying her time to get elected.
I don't see why a new prosecutor would need more time. Once the FBI submits their recommendation, Lynch still has to read it, unless she has been being informed about the investigation. I don't think that's happening.
Either way, Hillary and the Clinton foundation has so much corruption her and it, she shouldn't be running.
I posted from a article I read that Hillary has stated that if she is elected president, then she will continue to let the foundation continue to accept donations.
The foundation made up to $64 million in donations during her time as SOS from foreign governments after she sold them weapons.
This will be the first pay to play presidency to be out in the open.
We already know what those speaking fees were for.

It is not until the tide goes out that you discover who has been swimming naked.

Bill Clinton wanted to get "caught".
I also think the DOJ lawyers on the 2 FBI task forces have been keeping Lynch up to speed on the investigations.
I'm thinking Bill was hoping for more delay while a Special Prosecutor was brought on board.
Patience people, patience..

To blame the admins, dude.

There is no server, no ISP and no upstream (iXP) that works 100% of the time, 24/7/365.

Lots of different factors (that have nothing to do with admins) can cause downtime, but we're allowed to read here and post here without paying for it, just voluntary donations.

I was only half-irritated but it didn't look that way without it (it was supposed to convey more of a plaintive whining sound, but plain text doesn't always cut it). And I absolutely do not blame our good staff here--so I should have been more careful and really do apologize if it seemed particularly snippy...

Pardon

Life is strong. I'm weak, but Life is strong.

I worked on this problem for two days solid, well, I did break for a little sleep. It's pretty hard finding help on a holiday weekend. Sorry that I made you so furious, I'll do without the sleep next time.

only thought about when there is a problem that reaches our interaction with a computer system. Sorry the relaxed feeling of well deserved time off was used up before July 4th. Thank you for not working bankers hours.

much appreciated. Heh, the real hero is my wife for putting up with me. I get pretty detached when there's a problem to surmount.

Frankly, I think programmers might be aliens or gods or something like that. Java class made me literally cry! Thank the programmer gods for programmers!

And admins looking for needles in haystacks of code. The tiniest thing (bit lol) out of place can upset the entire apple cart.

How can I mea culpa here? My flip whining flopped...

(hangs head in shame)

I was grumpy--all that news and nobody to talk to about it! ARRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHH..... That was just wrong, I'm sorry it stood out like a sore thumb. I figured, actually, that you got hacked and that pissed me off. And then I was pissed about this whole situation.

Shit...

I know you well enough to not take offense, no worries. I thought it was a DDoS at first too. I was a grumpy cat for those two days as well, just ask my wife.

are our calm blue waters??" Someone made a suggestion that if possible, you should post how many times we checked in while you were down, to measure the level of addiction we have already. I admit, I clicked over multiple times to see how it was going.

If you can find a way to do without sleep, please share. We would get so much more done!

Glad we're back up, and we actually appreciate that you didn't just say the heck with it and leave it down all weekend. Happy Dependence - I mean Independence - Day!

It's about the oligarchy, or, more precisely, about the plutocracy and their plutonomy:

And its about the lure of money and who you have to pander to in order to get it:

The party will give us Hillary because that's what the party, the real party, the one behind the curtain, wants.

Very depressing to start, she won't be indicted, but go farther into the vid to see some FBI person saying No Leaks from the FBI. So leaks may all be coming from the Hill campaign.

Hey! my dear friends or soon-to-be's, JtC could use the donations to keep this site functioning for those of us who can still see the life preserver or flotsam in the water.
