Renoir luncheon.jpeg

Luncheon Of The Boating Party
Pierre-Auguste Renoir

This is a Renoir classic, but as interesting as the scene may be, I find his color choices to be less than pleasing to my eye. It's no Rothko.

36 Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin's commercial nuclear ambitions while the Clinton foundation was receiving "donations" to ease the pain.

58 Like the Caillebotte from a few days ago, this one really shows the influence of photography as well as the desire make a work more realistic. Look how crowded the right-hand-side is, while three people take up the left. In real life groups are never evenly distributed. Instead they go off in groups and cliques. Renoir is faithfully depicting this. But to counter this imbalance he evenly distributes color. The colors are also warm and bright, emphasizing a beautiful summer day in Paris, the most modern city in the world (and beautiful if you ask a Parisian). I'm not a Renoir fan, but I can see why this work is so respected.

196 Theory on Campos - (don't know if anyone else has proposed this, haven't been able to catch up on comments)

Campos was on duty, but nowhere near Mandalay Bay that night. He was off whoring and drinking and drugging or something, while he was clocked and supposed to be on the job.

So he hears about the tragedy, realizes he is about to be busted, so he gets a gun, gives himself a superficial shot to the leg and runs to the scene as soon as he's sober, saying "see? I was there! I was there!"

Then a reporter runs into him and he decided to make it ever better by spinning an absolutely wonderful story. And all of a sudden his story goes national, because it was TOO good.

And finally, at the last minute, Campos realizes how much trouble he is in, especially when it comes out that his gunshot wound is from a small caliber handgun that he keeps at home.

If you were Campos, what would you do today?

I don't think you're being a prick at all. My concern is not over the seizure of the phone or device as identified in a search warrant. My concern is forcing an individual to engage in an act of self-incrimination - the unlocking of the phone or device via biometric identification - once it's been seized. Related but separate issues in my mind. There is no substantive difference to me between that and forcing someone to admit that yes that's my kilo of cocaine as something merely incident to a search. It's a dangerous path to go down.

267 Then a reporter runs into him and he decided to make it ever better by spinning an absolutely wonderful story. And all of a sudden his story goes national, because it was TOO good.

And finally, at the last minute, Campos realizes how much trouble he is in, especially when it comes out that his gunshot wound is from a small caliber handgun that he keeps at home.

If you were Campos, what would you do today?

Posted by: GMan at October 17, 2017 10:29 AM (sxq57)

Correct. They will try to pressure you to open it for them so they can later say that part of the search was consensual in case there's a defect in the warrant.

There are good ones and bad ones.

"Good ones"
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the
Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make
secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed
Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and
kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and
court documents show.



"Bad ones"
Rather
than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of
Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more
years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark



Nothing new under the sun.

Employers force employees to do all sorts of things. Standing for the National Anthem is benign in comparison to many things. For instance, NFL players undergo regular random drug testing. That is much more invasive than being required to stand.

How much color would there be in front of a river, though? i mean, they just went boating, it looks like a riverbank to me, but I guess it could be the ocean or a lake, but either way, not much color.

And I'd say that's the underside of a tent, so that color would be faded, and in afternoon light, things also seem faded, or possibly suffused with a more golden light. (I assume afternoon because of the activity itself and the foodstuffs on the table)

You may be right. I may be wrong.

But understand this. Law enforcement collects facts and evidence. That's it. They do not prosecute. They collect the facts and the evidence and turn it over to the prosecution.

The prosecutor is usually involved early in the investigation but may not be ware of day to day developments as he may have 100 cases assigned. Prosecutors are very frequently influenced by politics as the the flow of funding for prosecutions are controlled by an appointed Chief Prosecutor or AUSA.

Prosecutors decline to prosecute cases every day. Every single day. For all kinds of reasons. It sucks but it is true.

Justice and law enforcement are frequently corrupt, But "slowness to act" is not necessarily a function of corruption.

Cowardice might be a better description.

Anyway, I got distracted by the girl at the bottom left who's getting all goo goo with her Yorkie. Gah! She's good enough looking but she's not getting all the attention right now so she's going to make a scene with the dog to make sure the spotlight is on her.

I am not arguing it from a free speech standpoint; I am not even sure that I am arguing it at all, since I think the NFL is well withing their rights to compel it....

I understand that, for sure. I believe the NFL has every right to tell them to. I am not arguing that part of it, and there is no comparison to the government compelling someone to stand.

I am not arguing it from a free speech standpoint; I am not even sure that I am arguing it at all, since I think the NFL is well withing their rights to compel it....

Both men now play a key role in the current investigation into possible, but still unproven collusion between Russia and Donald Trump's campaign during the 2016 election. McCabe is under congressional and Justice Department inspector general investigation in connection with money his wife's Virginia state Senate campaign accepted in 2015 from now-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe at a time when McAuliffe was reportedly under investigation by the FBI.

The story tellers say Ozzy Osborne stopped one day
All dressed up in women's lingerie

Jack or Beam it's not exactly clear
But when he whipped it out
The ghost of Travis gave a shout
Whose message all good Texans still can hear
