After leaving the room to let Taylor stew, Michael returned, removed his jacket and rolled his chair closer to Taylor. Using information gleaned from the interview, he now had to go for the confession.
“At this point, they need to move in,” said the instructor, Supervisory Special Agent Christopher J. Zisi. “Invade their comfort zone. Let them smell the chili you had for lunch. They can’t think straight.”
Mr. Zisi talks a little bit about his time in the FBI on his social media but is circumspect about his time which is expected of a man committed to his duty & mission and not seeking the limelight for what he does.
America needs more people like Christopher Zisi in the FBI and anywhere, quite frankly.
Mr. Comey has been subpoenaed by the House to testify.
Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans. I’m still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions. But I will resist a “closed door” thing because I’ve seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion. Let’s have a hearing and invite everyone to see.
Mr. Zisi is a 25 year veteran of the FBI. He has a law degree from Tulane and handled & white collar crime in the North East. He has worked overseas. He is a former FBI supervisor and trained recruits at Quantico.
…thinks Senator Marco Rubio should be suspended by twitter for suggesting his followers call a Miami (his constituency) business to register their displeasure that the restaurant owner who supports the dictator of Venezuela.
Okay. Report this tweet as inciting harassment. Twitter, ball is in your court. You’ve got rules that are clearly against this kind of behaviour. What are you going to do, @jack? Is this the valuable conversation that needs to be protected? https://t.co/Gl532hhtHo
I mean of all the boneheaded things to tweet. What a fucking idiot. He's not even smart enough to hide behind the whole "i had no idea my followers would harass people" facade that others have used because he's literally saying "in case anyone wanted to call" jesus fucking christ
Randi apparently wrote code that allows “token swapping” so anyone can swap tokens and fool the host of the content(such a a social media website) into thinking they are an authorized individual operated in good faith.
Randi has over 1,000 Oauth tokens.
@harper i've got a store of about 1k oauth tokens, so it's not a problem for me. might be for other people, though.
We emailed Brianna Wu for a comment about Randi’s silencing LGBT and she responded in a disdainful manner and then emailed that she had some info about Randi Lee Harper but wanted that information to remain private.
Brianna Wu responded with information that we already knew about Randi that anyone could have surmised from Randi’s own tweets.
I'll name and shame, I don't even care. Tarah Wheeler has publicly defended weev multiple times while trying to suck up to him on Twitter. Brianna Wu was told about Tarah's ties to weev and decided to participate in projects with her anyways because money/exposure was involved.
MA-8 is 30 percent people of color, and is 11 percent Asian.

I suggest that it wasn’t “smuggled” but was done so quite openly and can be seen on Twitter.
First, a little about me.
I’m non partisan. I know that seems strange since I’m a registered Republican but at the time CA required you choose a party to vote in primaries. As an 80’s kid, Ronald Reagan is my favorite President. I regard the 90’s, with Bill Clinton as a pretty decent time, also.
As a consequence of seeing firsthand how GOP party officials and advocates acted on Twitter I now support Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz in his run against Devin Nunes.
I realize other people have different views, and knowing now how the Clinton’s influenced incarceration rates of minorites (Donald Trump wants to execute drug dealers) that’s an extremely valid criticism.
My Unce is a retired CHP officer and curerntly works for Tulare County District Attorney’s office as an investigator.
I have an awful lot of family in Tulare County who are growers and various professions.
Childhood friends grew up to work in Corrections, law enforcement, big agriculture, for Governor Pete Wilson in his office and wrote the software the FEC uses to trace federal elections, Netfile, and work for the District Attorney’s office (son of a Judge).
My parents are/were friends with their parents. We largely attended the same elementary schools (before I attended the magnet starting in 6th grade) and high school.
When Donald Trump talks about MS13 and violent (Hispanic) gangs, he’s leaving out The Stoners, the Fresno gang, that opposed the F14’s (who later became Bulldogs gang in fresno.)
How do I know this? I lived in the area. I saw the graffitti. I had a friend beaten up by F14’s and had to leave Kings Canyon Junior High. I knew of other kids that liked to fight them.
I know a lot of these kids, though perhaps forgot names. The first comment is by an ’86 Roosevelt grad who was my squad leader in Boy Scouts. He loves(d) to cook and took his own spices to Camp Chawanakee.
We all basically lived in southeast Fresno, “Sunnyside” and have spread out and moved on.
I personally never had any issues and was part of our own “alternative” group in High School. The Chess Club. (Honestly we made it to get girls. It worked)
Another friends mom, his dad was my little league all star coach, escaped communists in North Korea as a kid and came to the Central Valley. She’s retired from the IRS, and her family apparently was honored by the South Korean goverment sometime in the 1990’s. I believe she (his mom) went back to South Korea for this ceremony.
I’m not going to provide all names, however if you search “Classmates” website and find Roosevelt High School yearbooks from ’83-’84 to ’86-’87 you can piece this all together yourselves. (Broadway star Audra McDonald attended same schools (from her 7th grade year, 1 year behind me.)
So how did Breitbart/Bannon/Milo “smuggle” (violent!) white nationalism into the GOP?
Milo Yiannopoulis networked with College Republicans on twitter.
It seems obvious that there was no screening done as to who Milo/Breitbart shoud employ at their site.
Mike Ma of Breitbart was suspended for bullying Arianna Rowlands.
Mike Ma was in a twitter DM group, “Tila Tequila Fan Club” with various others. They used this DM group to target individuals for cyber harassment campaigns. The twitter DM group is why I firmly believe Milo was rightfully suspended by Twitter.
I could give a hoot about any patriotic American. In fact, coming from a family that came here long ago and has served in probably every war (Great Grandpa was in France in WW1 in artillery, a great uncle died in Pacific in WW2, an uncle served in Korea, my dad VOLUNTEERED for US Navy (after deferments were up) and served as a LT Jg in Sea of Japan, vietnam) I encourage it.
However I despise people that bring violence to politics. And that’s who Milo and Breitbart allowed to become mainstream in GOP. I also oppose Antifa.
Joe Bernstein’s dad worked for Department of Justice as a Nazi Hunter.
I submit Joe is very much in his Father’s image and his Father would be very proud of him for his reporting on the white nationalists who invaded the GOP.
(A prominent NY Republican, former personal attorney for AIG Chairman Hank Greenberg, frequently tweeted with Milo. I’m not naming him because he likes to hire attorneys to try to silence the truth. I’m sure Joe knows who he is.
I’m familiar with AIG as they were the biggest client of a former employer, the world’s largest indepent adjusting firm. I believe this familiarity is why the attorney tweeted with me on twitter.
I was concerned about the prevalence of abuse on twitter at the time, and saw Milo being abused by people who used the exact same tactics they claimed he (and others) were using. By watching Milo’s feed, I found this GOP connected attorney.
Those empowered advocates (on the left) have been written about elsewhere and I’ve made my concerns known to Senator Feinstein, amongst others. Senator Feinstein assures me they are working in the Senate to get to the bottom of what’s going on at Twitter. I believe this is true due to the continued requests for information from Senator Feinstein to twitter and the attendant hearings before the Senate. I consider Twitter’s testimony that they don’t censor to be a bald faced laughable lie. I believe the far left is as openly violent as the far right in the US at present.)
The United Kingdom Home Affairs Committee published a report arguing that social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are “consciously failing” to combat the use of their sites to promote terrorism and killings,
In Twitter’s case this is undoubtedly true as Randi Lee Harper, allegedly an internet abuse expert, propagated ISIS on twitter.
Ms Harper has contacts with Twitter Safety (thought to be @Delbius) and openly boasts of being able to make queries of twitter and has openly violated consumers privacy in the past.
@AlexSmith1964 i didn't see this. if someone passes me the tweet or ticket number, i can make some queries.
Jack responded to Randi Lee Harper after journalist Kara Swisher (running for San Francisco Mayor) tweeted Randi Lee Harper’s Medium article to @Jack for review.
Vocative has reported that ISIS has been growing at least as fast as Twitter has been suspending accounts, no doubt in large part to Randi Lee Harper’s propagating ISIS materials and Jack’s conscious disregard of safety for all of Twitter’s customers.
In fact, Twitter’s customers actually fight ISIS on twitter, with @Jack and @support frequently suspending accounts actively trying to aid the US & UK in the fight against terrorism.
I often wonder why it is that @Jack has such callous disregard for the safety of his consumers, even as Islamists openly declare Presidential candidate Donald Trump their enemy and solicit hitmen.
Is she keeping a lid on anti semitism while enforcing austerity in Greece (many Muslims now land in Greece by the way) or encouraging it as Muslims travel deeping into Europe, with many choosing Germany?
Citing the refugee and Greek economic crises, along with the Paris terror attacks, Ms Gibbs said: “Each time Merkel stepped in. Germany would bail Greece out, on her strict terms. It would welcome refugees as casualties of radical Islamist savagery, not carriers of it.
I am not suggesting that all Germans are anti semitic, nor that all Muslim refugees are potential terrorists.
What I am suggesting is that a country with a very, very strong history of anti-semitism is objectively experiencing rising anti-semitism and Angela Merkel needs to remember her history when dealing with current events.
General Colin Powell, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (During Desert Storm) and Vietnam veteran was a strong advocate of clear, firmly stated goals, and overwhelming force (ie Powell Doctrine.)
He learned this lesson in the quagmire of Vietnam, where the United States dribbled and drabbed it’s way to ever increasing troop deployments in a quagmire of a war.
Syria, (including ISIS and their territory) is another Vietnam, only far more terrifying and confusing.
For one, Syria is a close ally of Russia’s. One of the few that actually remained after the fall of the Warsaw Pact.
Russia has of course rebuilt, and garnered new allies, including China in a military alliance, however Syria is a historic ally dating back decades.
There is no end game scenario here that sees the United States replacing the Syrian government with a pro west democracy.
Russia simply is not going to let this happen.
The best case at this point is to secure Turkey, as our NATO ally, and help Iraq and the semi autonomous Kurds remove ISIS from Syria.
To do this we need to go back. Which of course President Obama doesn’t want to do. He based his Presidency on ending wars, however wars often don’t agree with best laid plans…
If we are serious about Iraq, deploy. If not, let what happens, happen. However the Kurds, who have long helped us with Iraq (Saddam) shouldn’t be left twisting in the wind, despite Turkeys misgivings.
Sometimes force is necessary. And when it is, overwhelming force is the way to go. Just ask General Colin Powell.
this drib and drab of special forces, like the Green Berets in Vietnam, is not working.
