Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

if they already compromised the machine why would they need malware from the USB stick?

That may be what he's most worried about, but I expect there's a lot in there that he's afraid of having more scrutiny. He may be getting audited (or maybe not), but that's not the same as having a huge team of investigators checking out whether all the paper reflects reality. There was just a story (dunno if it was true or even a joke) about his keeping some goats at Mar-a-Lago in order to qualify for some farm credit. There may be a hundred things like this and the goats may just be there on paper.

So, like, lose the election and get indicted for tax fraud is (hopefully) a possibility.

I appreciate you finally answering the question I had - nice change of pace from the "hey buddies, look at this bad poster" replies. If one exists and it does not get any activity then that kind of answers my question as to whether it is something this forum would place value on. Shame in that I believe a thread like that (if it was active) would give a humanizing effect to the forum and would show the good work many here likely do.

I don't mind the passive aggressive heat people toss (although granted I respect more direct feedback), because why would that be a concern of mine? I was asking a genuine question, and when some tossed some fairly mundane heat back I acknowledged it and politely carried on, which seems to only create more feedback, but perhaps that is the nature of this forum to an extent, and that is fine. Weird that you think this has anything to do with playing a martyr - that is never a routine I would do, because it is not something I ever am, nor would pretend to be. I simply do not have any concerns what people who do not matter to me say to or about me, and they should have a similar response to me in that regard, so I take any emotional outbursts here directed toward me as temporary and passing in nature.

Still, I appreciate you finally answering my question, and I hope this reply was appropriate in that regard. Best of luck in your adventures.

There's also other stuff like Trump campaign insists income-based New York tax credit is in error
Donald Trump once again received a credit reserved for those making less than $500,000 on his latest New York City tax bill -- something the campaign insists was an error by the city for the second quarter in a row.

On Trump's quarterly property tax bill issued last Friday, the GOP presumptive nominee was granted a $304 Basic STAR credit, a New York City school tax relief program granted to New York City homeowners who have a combined household income with their spouse of less than $500,000 a year. That would imply that Trump, who has closely guarded his financial records but frequently brags about his net worth, makes far less money than he claims.

Can't you ESC Fsomething to boot from the drive and then stuff happens?

So now the whitehouse is claiming they fired the secret service director. Apparently his replacement is Murr from Impractical Jokers, James M. Murray.

They also committed a VERY basic mistake in digital evidence chain-of-custody, which might make criminal conviction very difficult.

It's almost impossible to overstate how inexcusable this mistake was. It would be like cops finding a murder weapon at a crime scene and firing it.

I assume this maybe why the MSM was talking today that she isn't really a spy, doing more gaslighting for them.. Must be a fun day to work on the TVee with Nielson getting the comfort blanket too. Wow!

Your posting deserves those replies imo. They are snide backhand digs at the forum and its posters mostly. Even when there is any content its only there as wrapping paper.

You come in with this.

A dig post about the regs trying to be witty in their narrow bubble. Not a good way to start out unless you want push back. Which you do.

Well you will have to read the forum for other reasons then. Or not.

Whats funny is this forum is the opposite of passive aggressive. Its like one of the main ATF complaints that it is to openly aggressive and direct.

while most of the time they are simply inadequate, network security policies are not nothing. sometimes it's possible to compromise a machine, but not send it a signal to start spying/collecting. that may take another step, for example gaining physical access to install malware with the insert of a usb drive.

I am not quite sure you get that when I say the derails are a lot more fun to read than the standard, endless complaining about Trump (usually through snarky comments toward a twitter bot) that I mean it. It was actually amusing to read people going insane with Clovis about whatever. Clovis was the same when he and I debated about the TV show Survivor years ago when I used to watch it, so perhaps that was part of the fun value for me, and contrary to what some other posters said, it had nothing to do with a need to distract from the crazy going on with families at the border.

I tend to read it a bit on Sunday when I am watching my guys play and some on Monday for reporting day as a break. Very little if any on other days. I appreciate how much this forum matters to its regs (and no, I am not saying that in a dismissive manner), but not everyone wants this to consume as much time in their lives.

Well, when it comes to posters they do not like it is a whole lot of "hey buddies, look at how bad this guy is" or "thanks xxx" whenever they want to add snark to a point about some type of policy or the stock market drops. I guess I would not quite call that direct conversation (even you have done quite a few posts analyzing me, but not speaking toward me, for your buddies here). In the end, that is a matter of perception, and as I said - it is of zero concern to me, and you are familiar enough with my posting to know when I say that it is direct and accurate. Thanks again for the feedback. Given it is Monday there is little chance I will be a factor (disruptive or otherwise) for a while due to my schedule, so things will be as they always are, give or take some Clovis variance .

So I assume they'll try to find someone who will break the law to head DHS Saturday Night Massacre style? Won't be able to get that person confirmed, hopefully, so he probably has to keep firing people until he gets a deplorable.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Checking in with the President who defends the Constitution

Quote:
Behind the scenes, two sources told CNN, the President told border agents to not let migrants in. Tell them we donít have the capacity, he said. If judges give you trouble, say, ďSorry, judge, I canít do it. We donít have the room.Ē

After the President left the room, agents sought further advice from their leaders, who told them they were not giving them that direction and if they did what the President said they would take on personal liability. You have to follow the law, they were told.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

"You have to follow the law." That's apparently something that isn't immediately clear to federal law enforcement officers. They have to be threatened not to break the law because Trump confuses them by telling them to do what they really want to do.

I imagine that is the same as most Trump meetings. After he leaves people are told to ignore what he said.

Only the true deplorables (fill in names here) follow any of his suggestions.

Yeah, it's partly true in a banality of evil way and the Germans weren't that much different than anyone else, but we're probably headed towards death camps more quickly than Germany was when Hitler came to power.
