kind of trying to break out of severe depression and resume some kind of social media posting. Not that I'm posting much lately; but anybody still following this feed might want to drop by http://store.steampowered.com/app/422030/ReVeN_XBridge/

A while ago... LONG while ago... I pushed the ReVeN kickstarter; and the developers went through a series of real life issues I can very easily identify with.

The creation of XBridge as a game unto itself is a storied tale best told by the kickstarter pages; and I really hope that XBridge can succeed on it's own. If for no other reason that the success of XBridge means the ReVeN developers can spend more time on ReVeN itself...

News appears to be breaking that +AMD has successfully landed a #Chromebook design win.

More details as I can get them; but this is certainly encouraging given AMD's inability to get products into selling market segments.

And as a side note... G+ is absolutely terrible now for making text posts.

#MurkyPolitics #TrumpsGame #FreedomCaucus

Earlier today on #Twitter #PresidentTrump went after the Freedom Caucus over failing to get with Trump on the #TrumpAgenda

There are a couple of knee jerk reactions to how the Trump Tweet was phrased; but there is a viewpoint to had from both sides of the conflict. There is a very fair point to be made that some of the members of the Freedom Caucus are complete ideologues who will not vote for any legislation they do not agree with 100%. There is a fair point to be made that some members hold a complete hardline no-compromise agenda.

On the flip side; the very first piece of conflicting legislation that President Trump backed was the #RyanCare #ObamaCareLite plan. A terrible plan that did absolutely nothing to #RepealObamaCare or address any of the underlying issues that have sent Health Care costs skyrocketing.

The Freedom Caucus nearly singlehandly saved the entire +GOP from making a terrible error by knowingly passing legislation that was just as bad as the legislation it would have replaced.

It's not like the Trump team didn't have any other options; the very capable +Rand Paul (assuming correct account) had published a very different framework addressing health care. A framework, that as I read it, actually showed it had been considered over the course of Obamacare as a compromise position.

I loved the, as I read it, expressed ideal of tax-credits that could instead be applied to a Health Savings Account if the tax-payer was due a refund. There is so far an unspoken, and un-argued in Congress, idea that as a Country America has a vested interest in the health of it's citizens; and thus the Country should bear some of the costs of making sure citizens stay healthy. Currently the ObamaCare system expresses this idea as a subsidy that goes directly to a Health Insurer's bank... and thus not necessarily towards a doctor or actual medical costs.

The tax-credit approach would, in theory, effectively target citizens who file and pay taxes; while ensuring that 100% of the credited money applied to a Health Savings Account would ultimately be spent on Doctor's Visits or Medical costs rather than lost in some insurer's sprawling administrative costs.

Except; that wasn't the framework that the Trump Administration backed. That wasn't the type of solution that got Health Insurance agencies out of the legislation.

So going after the Freedom Caucus over stopping a Health Care plan that once again did nothing to lower costs... and failing to adopt or back a plan that actually could work on paper just on the root ideas alone?

I think President Trump needs to seriously reconsider what advice he is taking on how to approach the Freedom Caucus as a potential roadblock to future legislation. When the #ObamaCareLite plan is the only visible point of congressional conflict between the Freedom Caucus and the Trump Agenda; needling the Freedom Caucus does not make Trump look like the political figure that voters should be supporting. 

#MurkyPolitics   #NotSoMurky  

Just to make the point here... there still are protesters demanding to see the taxes of #PresidentTrump  

Slight problem: The #CorruptIRS  already broke a number of laws deliberately repressing Conservative Aligned Groups. We already know that Lois Lerner has been found guilty of breaking those laws by Congress itself. We know that the DOJ refused to press charges on direct order of the Obama Administration. We know that the instructions to deliberately repress opponents to the Obama Administration through the IRS came FROM within the Obama Administration.

Am I really supposed to believe that the IRS; which already broke a number of standing laws; would not have broken even more laws to harm #DonaldTrump ? Am I really supposed to believe that at no point the IRS working on it's own initiative or the Obama Administration did not illegally access the #TrumpTaxes ? Am I really supposed to believe that an Administration which went so far as to conduct an on-tarmac meeting between the husband of a person under federal investigation and the head of the DOJ itself; did not at any point arrange for the Trump Taxes to be leaked or shared?

With the number of known criminal actions taken by the Obama Administration; with the number of known criminal actions taken by IRS employees; that becomes a very hard sell.

If there was anything in the Trump Taxes... anything at all... the Obama Administration would have made sure the information got leaked...

Beyond that; given the number of security breaches by foreign governments into the computer systems of the US Government; I'm expected to believe that no hostile government made no attempt to garner those tax records for their own purposes of leverage? Am I to really believe that every single foreign government who could have tried such an action did not try? Am I really expected to believe that the taxes of Donald J Trump were under such tight security under the Obama Administration that those records were not obtained by anybody?

Really?

REALLY?

The simple answer to whether or not there is anything incriminating or damaging in the Trump Taxes is this: There isn't.

There would be too much value for too many players involved who had the motive, opportunity, and method to gain access to those records... for those records to not have leaked.

By far; the more likely scenario is that President Trump paid his taxes within the constraints and loopholes of the current tax system. The far more likely scenario is that President Trump hired the best accountants he could find who worked the legal system to the best of their abilities...

All those tax records would likely prove is that President Trump is really good at hiring the best people for a job; a narrative that in no way fits the narrative of a Propaganda obsessed media.

#MurkyPolitics  

The #ObamaAdministration 's  #IntelligenceSources  are certain that Russia interfered with the US Election. These claims of certainty on interference comes despite those same Intelligence Sources testifying before Congress under Oath that that there was no evidence that Russia, in the capacity of a National State Actor, interfered in the US Election by hacking into the email accounts of DNC Operatives; much less quote/unquote "hacking" voting machines or changing the tallies of popular state votes.

Slight problem with the claims: #NetworkAdministrators  familiar with things like #IPaddresses  and #HeaderFiles  for emails; as well as little things like #ServerLogs ; say the Intelligence Community is full of something resembling cow manure. There's no observable evidence from the Podesta account emails to suggest any Russian Involvement in the successful Spearfishing Attack that Breached the Account. The Source IP Addresses, the Header Files that listed those addresses, and the contained IP addresses of the links inside the spearfishing attack that resulted in a third party gaining access to the Podesta account are known. None of the meta-data from the spearfishing attack implicates, indicates, or even remotely suggests the involvement of Russia as a State Actor; nor is any such implication made of Russian Attached Assets.

So if no such implication, indication, evidence, exists; Why Does the Obama Administration Keep insisting that Russia Did Something

The key factor is that the US is, in fact, in possession of Intelligence that Russia, as a State Actor, did breach the Private Clinton Email Server. It is heavily assumed that the loss of Uranium Mining Rights to Russia by Hillary Clinton was a direct result of Russia leveraging information garnered from that Clinton Email Server. There is evidence to suggest that access to that Clinton Email Server was also directly responsible for any number of other curbstomps heaved upon the US State Department while it was run by Hillary Clinton. Observable external behavior of foreign nations suggest strongly that there was an inside scoop on anything the Clinton State department was doing; access that continued even after John Kerry took over the State Department.

The Obama Administration is now placed in the very real position that the entire contents of the Clinton Email Server are quite likely in the hands of Putin's Russian Government, if not the hands of other governments around the world. It is very likely that a competent State Department could arrange for an interest-aligned country like Russia to remand the contents of the Clinton Email Server into the hands of incoming Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

That Private Email Server and it's contents are a key factor in the Allies of the Obama Administration working to push the story that Russia Interfered in Something.

Let me put it this way: the #FastandFurious  weapon trafficking scandal and the #Benghazi  scandal are both murder investigations. The Clinton Email Server is analogous to the weapon in a murder investigation. The Clinton Email's themselves are analogous to the bullets in a murder investigation. The IP Addresses, header files, and server logs would be the ballistics in a murder investigation.

It is very likely that the weapon, the bullets, the ballistics are only weeks away from being delivered into the waiting hands of competent investigators working for the Department of Justice. The exact, unredacted, non-deleted, and accurate contents of the Clinton Email server could likely send not just Hillary Clinton, but her Husband Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer to jail for the rest of their natural lives; as well as many other DNC Operatives and non DNC Operatives under the employ of the Obama Administration.

Therefor the Obama Administration is trying to play a quite dangerous long-term confidence scam on the US Public. If the Obama Administration is successful in implanting the idea into the public's casual thought that Russia interfered with the election by hacking computer system after computer system; then it almost becomes trivial to then suggest that the contents of the Clinton Email Server; as incriminating as those contents could possibly be; have been tampered with.

The deliberate conflation of the successful attacks and breaches on the Private Clinton Email Server to the separate successful attacks and breaches on the Podesta Email Account are part of that confidence scam. Just as there is no evidence that to date that Russia, as a state Actor, was involved in transmitting the contents of the Podesta Email account to Wikileaks; there is no evidence to suggest that Russia, as a State Actor, was involved in transmitting the earlier-breached Private Clinton Email Server Content to Wikileaks. However, the contents of those email attacks are largely now known to the public BECAUSE of Wikileaks. Implicating Russian Involvement in the release helps the Obama Administration add strength to their claim that the contents of the emails have been tampered or altered.

Operatives of the DNC and employees Obama Administration have already made the claims, multiple times, that the Podesta Email Releases were fraudulent or inaccurate in some capacity; while never actually defining the extent of that capacity. A readily available example of this defense in action can be found in an interview of Donna Brazil by Megyn Kelly. When confronted about her involvement in the transmission of debate questions from a news agency to the Clinton Campaign; Donna Brazil made statements to the effect of denying the emails; despite the server logs, ip addresses, and header files leaving absolutely zero doubt she was personally involved in the transmission.

Incidentally; the narrative push on the induced public conciseness pattern that Russia Hacked It All resulted in the story from various news sources that #RussiaHackedTheUSPowerGrid . Malware was indeed found on a single laptop in the possession of a power company employee; that wasn't actually connected to the power grid.

The track record of the The Obama Administration, and by extension the Clinton Campaign and DNC Operatives, attempting to pull off a long-term confidence scam is well documented. There is a framework to be set here. The Obama Administration, the Clinton Campaign, and DNC Operatives or Allies have long operated on the principles of organized warfare. A not unknown tactic practiced by everybody from competing business's to sports teams is to declare that a battle is over before the battle has begun. Ever been to a Football Game? A Basketball game? A Baseball Game? A Hockey Game? How many fans chant derogatory statements about the other team; declaring the fight over; the other team has lost; it's time to pack up and go home? How many advertisements has Microsoft, Apple, Google, Samsung, Sony, Sega, and many others run over the years declaring a competitors product dead on arrival? Sega Blast Processing! Nintendon't! Microsoft Get The Facts!

Is any of this ringing any bells? Is the point being made clear?

Simply repeating a statement over and over does not make that statement true.

How many times have American Citizens heard that Eric Holder is not incompetent and should keep his license to practice law? How many times have people been told that Loretta Lynch did nothing wrong? How many times were American's told that Lois Lerner didn't do anything wrong? How many times were Americans told that Fast And Furious was not a scandal? How many times were American's told that Benghazi was the result of a Youtube video and not Jihad? How many times were American's told they could keep their doctor? How many times were American's told that Obamacare wasn't a complete and utter abject failure? How many times were American's told that Hillary hadn't committed any crimes? How many times have American's been told that Bill Clinton is not a predatory serial rapist?

How Many Times Were Americans Told That Trump Could Not Win And The Fight Was Over There Was No Need To Go Vote

Just because something is repeated over and over and over DOES NOT MAKE IT TRUE!

Eric Holder should have been disbarred at the same time he was held in contempt of Congress. Loretta Lynch displayed outright corruption cutting a deal with Bill Clinton to keep his wife out of Jail. Lois Lerner got busted before Congress. Both Benghazi and the Fast and Furious Operation resulted in American Citizens dying because of the Obama Administration's incompetence; or negligence; or flat refusal to call Jihad for what it is.

Obamacare is a complete and total abject failure; and every single "Promise" made by Obama turned out to be a flat lie. One of the chief architects was caught on camera admitting that Obamacare used #TorturedLanguage .

Hillary is a #ConfessedCrimina  in her own words. Her Husband? Well, he's got a long list of women who have made police statements and attempted to file charges.

#TrumpWon  

Is the pattern obvious? Can I make it even more clear? The Obama Administration and it's cronies has done nothing but lie over, and over, and over, and over. Time and time again it has proven to be the most powerful weapon the Liberal Left has; to repeat a lie as though it were not a lie.

Which brings us back to Russia Hacking the US Election. Once again Obama has returned to his playbook; and he's running the only play that's worked. He's told a Lie; he's "Forced" his cronies to support that Lie; and he's going to run with that Lie in the hopes that the Lie Itself can be used to obscure the truth.

In this case; that scary truth could very well be the evidence that puts the Obama Administration; and many of the Intelligence Officials supporting the Obama Administration; in jail for a very, very, very long time.

Morning clean-up to correct grammar and hopefully clarify the implications and conflations of the separate Podesta and Clinton Email Server breaches.

#ThisIsYourWorldObama

This is a video of the Russian Ambassador getting SHOT by an Islamic Terrorist. This is the kind of world Obama and #HillaryClinton want the United States to live in. Where Open Borders let soldiers who fully believe themselves to be in a Holy War to gain the highest levels of access. This Islamic Terrorist was a badge carrying, state certified, police officer.

Just consider that for a second; then think about all of the unvetted "refugees" that the Obama Adminstration is trying to allow inside the borders of the United States. Think about all the unvetted "Refugees" that the EU is allowing to spread across their visaless borders. This was somebody who "Made it through the system" and just look at what damage he caused.

Is there still any real question as to why country after country is condemning globalization and open borders once Citizens realize liberal elites are placing the very lives of those citizens at risk? 

#MurkyPolitics  

My Take on #JohnBolton for #DSOS of the #UnitedStates :: I highly disagree with #RandPaul +Rand Paul  on appointing Ambassador Bolton to the Deputy Secretary of State position. Many of the elected US Legislature might not consider the US to be in an Ongoing #War in the Middle East or against a (major) Religion.

However; #ISIS / #ISIL ARE #AtWarWithTheUS :: They have commenced #Jihad against not just America, but other nations such as France. #JohnBolton understands that the US is, in fact, on a #WarTimeFooting and is, in fact, embroiled in a #War that does aggressively threaten lives worldwide.

Rand Paul needs to cram it. Right now America needs somebody high in the state department, and #JohnBolton is such a person, who is willing and capable of recognizing the existential threat #RadicalIslam poses; and prepared to deal with that threat.

Not sure if known bug or not...

but on the most recent nightly when trying to install via the desktop; the installer crashed out with a python error when it tried to install to the Master Boot Record.

I then tried with the Debian Installer from the boot options. Which seems to have processed fine... but didn't actually ask for a user-name or password during the installation process. So now I'm stuck at a login screen with no idea what the default login account information would have been.

I had downloaded another nightly on 10/30; and the Debian Installer lacks the login creation step there as well. So I'm not sure how far back that particular issue goes.

A quick trip to the wiki and I don't see any clearly printed information on what the system default username and password might have been set as.
