SHALOM
Many are familiar with the Hebrew word shalom or “peace.” The common western definition of peace is — the absence of conflict or war — but in Hebrew it means so much more.

“Shalom” is taken from the root word shalam, which means, “to be safe in mind, body, or estate.” It speaks of completeness, fullness, or a type of wholeness that encourages you to give back — to generously re-pay something in some way.

Kinda interesting from over fifty years ago.
KPIX-TV Eyewitness News report from July 8th 1968 by Mike Lee in San Francisco, which examines media representations of the African American community in Bayview Hunters Point. In his introduction Lee states that: "Hunters Point had been rated by the news media as one of the big potential trouble spots of the nation. But despite that advanced publicity, there has been relatively little trouble here this summer." Lee also refers to a developing "culture of black brotherhood," which he characterizes as "a new form of black power." Includes interviews with Floyd (a legal assistant) by Candlestick Park; Phil Kay (Associate Editor of 'The Spokesman') and Loren Bradford (Western Addition War on Poverty office). Ends with silent, POV views of the neighborhood, shot from a moving car along 3rd Street. It's worth noting that this item was orginally titled 'Ghetto Report I' in the KPIX News shot-log for 1968. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.

I CALLED IT! I CALLED IT! I CALLED IT!

On March 20, I posted the following in the Althouse forum:

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and make a prediction. Sometime under the last two years of Trump or if he or another Republican president in 2020, I predict that the FBI or BATF will bust a far left-wing group for running guns from Mexico.

Why would the lefties do such a thing? Well, because they know they're seriously outgunned by the Right. Not only do the Righties have hundreds of millions of guns, but they also "own" the US gun culture. The Right can thus keep tabs on what guns the Left is acquiring in ways that the Left would prefer to keep secret.


And, lo & behold, in the 4/28/2019 San Diego Tribune, what's the story? Lefties caught attempting to buy guns from Mexican cartels!!

I wants me some mad props!

effinayright said...

I'll love to hear the Progs who want to take away our guns to explain why it's a GOOD THING that Chavez, Maduro and the Venezuelan communists did that some ten years back, SO THAT the only hope of overthrowing that corrupt, stupid government lies with getting the military to come over to their side.


(which it may not do, given that it--unlike the populace---still gets to eat).

Go on...Inga... Feder, Chuck et al, give it a shot. Tell us again why a disarmed populace is a good thing.

And then tell us how things will work out if the proglodytes and Antifa types were to try to overthrow our government.

Anyone wanna bet on how the old Soviet idea of "the correlations of forces" would work out for them?

You know....a hundred million firearms on Trump's/our side?

@MK,

I wouldn't be surprised that American, Brazilian, & Columbian intelligence agencies are working on that problem as we speak.

Maduro really has few friends left in the hemisphere. No one except the Russians & the Cubans would complain about the Russians & Cubans in Venezuela ending up dead.

It's not going to be pretty, but there are too many forces aligned against Maduro, who can't even keep the lights on.

Mueller’s letter is just an attempt to set the narrative before Barr’s testimony tomorrow.

If Mueller has done his job, had a redacted report ready, and reached a conclusion on collusion this would not have been necessary.

Ken Star did his job, right or wrong.

That is why I see the Mueller Report as a political hatchet job against Trump.

gadfly said...

Barr lied to Congress that he didn't know if the Special Counsel approved of Barr's reporting. Turns out that he had read Mueller's letter which was clear:

“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions,” Mueller wrote. “There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.”

Barr has lied and lied and lied, just like his boss.

After reading the Mueller report and Barr’s summary to Congress, people can make up their own mind if Barr fairly summarizes the report.

I think he did.

I don’t give a shit what Mueller thinks. The guy fucked up the anthrax investigation. He’s a figurehead. A mope. He can now retire somewhere. He’s tenure as head of the FBI was like the tenure of W and Obama. Remarkably bad. Wall Street melted down the economy and Murller was investigating steroids in baseball. Fucking mope.

Mueller really drinks his own piss. Anyone familiar with his record is unimpressed with him. The Ray Rice report he did clearing Roger Goodell was a joke. Just like Sideshow Bob.

Ken B said...

Gadfly
We can read the Mueller report ourselves, and judge for ourselves whether Barr distorted or not. We don’t need to rely on Mueller’s opinion. Do you understand that the Mueller report itself is a better guide to the Mueller report than even Mueller is? If Barr lied you should be able to prove that *from the report*. We'll wait.

Hi Gadfly! How are you?

Question: Did Special Prosecutor Mueller PROSECUTE Trump, Trump Jr., anyone from the Trump campaign or any American for conspiring with Russia to interfere with the 2016 election?

Kevin said...

According to sources, Mueller wrote a letter to Barr whinning about they way Barr has handled things.

This was a while ago and the resolution was to get the redacted report out ASAP, which is what Mueller wanted.

The DOJ lawyers were apparently miffed that Mueller's team didn't send a version over with commonly-understood redactions and they were playing catch-up doing the work after the world knew the report had been delivered.

If Mueller's team had done their jobs, there wouldn't have been as long a gap before the report could be made public.

To those who think this is big news, I would ask: "What part of the report does this letter to Barr change?"

iowan2 said...

“And, lo & behold, in the 4/28/2019 San Diego Tribune, what's the story? Lefties caught attempting to buy guns from Mexican cartels!!”

“I wants me some mad props!”

My thoughts when I read about the left smuggling guns into the US from Mexico, that they were (foolishly) acquiring fully automatic (MGs) firearms. Far cheaper to buy them from Mexican smugglers than legal full automatics. If they are worried about the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy tracking their gun purchases, they should just buy some 80% complete lower receivers, complete them, and finish them with parts purchased over the Internet.

YoungHegelian said...

@Bruce H.

If they are worried about the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy tracking their gun purchases, they should just buy some 80% complete lower receivers, complete them, and finish them with parts purchased over the Internet.

But that takes time & skill, and no doubt the FBI & the vendors themselves are watching for bulk buyers.

Like you, I suspect that the Lefties are shopping for higher end hardware like fully automatic, RPGs, grenade launchers, & the like. They are so outgunned in numbers by the righties that they probably feel they need to make up in firepower (& the ability to terrorize) what they lack in numbers.

I also suspect that various antifa organizations are working with the cartels as drug sellers, because it's a quick source of lots of untraceable cash.

Yancey Ward said...

Well, Gadfly, I read both Barr's summary letter when published and the actual report which is publicly available- there is literally nothing in that summary letter that is factually incorrect- hell, Barr even used Mueller's own damned sentences quoted directly from the the report on both the collusion angle and the obstruction angle.

So, my challenge to you is this- take Barr's summary and the report, and tell me what parts Barr got wrong?

readering said...

So much for the "hoax" line of attack. This has legs.

Yancey Ward said...

Yeah, keep that hope alive, Readering. I read the entire NYTimes story- Mueller was criticizing the press coverage, not the summary which the story itself admits Mueller agreed was factually correct. What Mueller wanted was for a broader release of the report itself, which of course was done two weeks ago, but you might have missed it and didn't read it.

Limited Perspective said...

We were given a conspiracy theory worse than anything Joseph McCarthy came up with. The theory was a fraud, a lie, an outright narrative of bullshit from beginning to end. Any sane and normal citizen can see it.

Now we are supposed to try to understand the nuances of the Mueller Report that haven't been captured by Barr's summary after being outright lied to for two years? Of course, con men can always launch another line of bullshit. Good luck selling those lies to rational people.

Why do we care how Venezuela runs it's internal affairs? Let their citizens figure it out.

Mueller had two years in which he was able to write anything he wanted about what his team did and was doing. He then does in fact write a number of hundreds of pages about such. But now he feels the urgent need to write 3 or 4 more pages? Did he forget something that he suddenly remembered?

My worry is that Google is starting to moderate for political content, esp since my 2 or 3 comments rejected as Forbidden were of a political nature. But then most of what I post is political, so that may not be the problem. Ideas?

"Prolly just a big misunderstanding. It will all get straightened out when Barr, Mueller, Rosenstein and McGahn all testify at length under oath. Oh, and Trump too. He said how much he wanted to testify. He should have that opportunity."

You should get Trump testifying out of your head. Ain't gonna happen. His attorneys aren't going to let him, and Congress can't make him. He heads a coequal branch of government, and Separation of Powers prevents them from makeing him testify. And part of Separation of Powers is Executive Privilege. I doubt that the President's attorney is going to be allowed to testify - Trump has both Executive and Atty/Client Privileges with him. Everyone else is going to have a DoJ attorney sitting right next to them to assert whatever Privileges the Executive decides to assert. Nadler melted down when he was made aware of this. Too bad. So sad. But this is no different than the FBI sitting an attorney minder next to their people when testifying to prevent them from talking about anything involving the Mueller investigation. Reading the Congressional testimony transcripts was very illuminating in this respect. Everything being investigated in the DoJ and FBI somehow involved alleged Russian Collussion, which was the ostensible reason for the Mueller investigation. Any line of questioning getting anywhere close was shut down hard by those FBI arty minders. The interesting thing is that the DoJ didn't seem to follow suit, which meant that of all the transcripts I read, Bruce Ohr's were the most forthright and revealing. Well, the Dems in the House can expect the same from Trump to protect his legal Privileges.

Chuck said...

Bruce I was being sarcastic about Trump testifying. I've read Trump's deposition transcripts in two of his civil cases. He's a horrendous, incompetent witness. No good lawyer working for Trump in either a civil or criminal setting should allow Trump to testify if it can possibly be avoided.

iowan2 said...

This letter by Mueller and the subsequent "leaking" of the letter a full month later, just by coincidence the night before Barr is scheduled to be interviewed before the Senate, is an orchestrated media/DNC performance. Everyone holding to their assigned scripts.
Nobody is doing anything but playing their part.

Barr is great in questioning, and he has the huge advantage of have the law on his side, and Mueller takes orders from Barr. A person of Barr's intelligence, and experience, will carve up the stupid questions,and questioner, then cite law on questions of substance.

Nope, the "'Charlottesville Hoax' Hoax" is not going to work anymore.

Trump really DID praise the white supremacists in Charlottesville before he condemned white supremacy.

Scott Adams hates this column so much that he will not say the title of the piece or its online publication, or even the name of the author, which is Robert Tracinski.

Tracinski disembowels the Scott Adams-promoted "Charlottesville Hoax" narratve, and Adams can't stand it.

In short; what Scott Adams keeps quoting about how Trump disowned all of white supremacism is not a complete quote of all of Trump's Remarks. Tracinski did, here:

https://thebulwark.com/the-charlottesville-hoax-hoax/

And here:
https://thefederalist.com/2017/05/17/learned-nazis-came-charlottesville/

And here:
https://thefederalist.com/2018/08/13/year-finally-one-side-left-charlottesville/"

Trump said that there were "many fine people" among the Friday-night torch wavers chanting "Jews will not replace us." And Trump said that the people he was favoring "had a permit." But the people who had the much-litigated demonstration permit were the white supremacists, and the reason that the permit was so heavily litigated was because it was a case of a classic hate group wishing to employ their rights under the First Amendment, and in the end the First Amendment won and American Nazis were able to express themselves in a demonstration.

But what Tracinski points out is that among the warring "Unite the Right" demonstrators on Saturday, and among the torch-wielders on Friday in Charlottesville, there were virtually no "protesters" of the kind that Trump was falsely envisioning when Trump made the statement that Scott Adams was attempting to defend. There were no moderate, respectable, historical-preservationist types of any note or number or consequence on the streets of Charlottesville that weekend.

Robert Tracinski is one of those people in fact; who were against the removal of civil war monuments and statues.

Far from being defensible (or "perfect" as Trump claimed), his several comments on Charlottesville have been incompetent at best and racist dog-whistles at worst.

And again; I don't even care much about the shit headed Althouse commentariat on this. I want to engage Althouse and Scott Adams as directly as they will allow. They are gaslighting the public with this "Charlottesville Hoax" nonsense.

Get this straight, you jackass. If you quoted me -- and you should have -- I never, ever said anything about having "no interest in the truth." Subsequent to my original comment that you are incompetently trying to quote, I wrote that I regretted using the word "smear" in particular given that at least one definition of that word includes referentially the use of untruth. Although I never intended to say or imply that I wanted to hurt Trump with any untruth.

Officially, the limit is 4096 (2^12) characters. Unofficially, it is a little less. My supposition is that the 4096 limit includes HTML that Blogger automatically wraps around the comments. Not surprising, given the length of my posts, I have run into this routinely over the years. At least it is better than Reason, where Volokh has moved, that only allows either 1k or 2k characters.
