Water as an Archetypal Image in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass
One of the less prevalent, but most meaningful images in these books is water. In the “Alice” stories, Lewis Carroll uses the archetypal image of water to represent the situations and events that Alice encounters through her journey.

Why has no one pounced on @GA's outing himself? W=GA, for those in the know.
It was noticed. I thought its possible that GA was SENT by Q-Team to ATS for help.
I just didnt bring it up because I wasnt sure.
Sorry but Q made it pretty clear that there will be no outside comms whatsoever. I highly doubt GA is part of the Q-Team. Their goals may be aligned but nothing more.

Delta engine fire?
How rare are engine fires?
A smoking engine forced a Delta Air Lines Inc. flight bound for London to return to Atlanta shortly after takeoff Wednesday afternoon, a day after another Delta takeoff was aborted due to engine trouble.
It was the second recent scary incident for Delta DAL, on Tuesday, a Delta flight from Providence, R.I., to Atlanta was forced to abort takeoff after it experienced engine trouble, according to WPRI News.
The plane was scheduled to depart for Atlanta around 12:50 p.m. when it began to experience engine trouble. Bill Fischer, the airport's spokesman, did not say what the specific problem was with the engine.
The aborted Delta takeoff occurred the same day a Southwest Airlines flight from New York to Dallas experienced an engine failure that left one woman dead.
FAISALABAD, Pakistan — The father of Imran Awan — an IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who investigators concluded made “unauthorized access” to House servers — transferred a USB drive to a Pakistani senator and former head of a Pakistani intelligence agency, the father’s ex-business partner, Rashid Minhas, alleged.
Minhas told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Imran Awan’s father, Haji Ashraf Awan, was giving data to Pakistani official Rehman Malik, and that Imran bragged he had the power to “change the U.S. president.”
Asked for how he knew this, he said that on one occasion in 2008 when a “USB [was] given to Rehman Malik by Imran’s father, my brother Abdul Razzaq was with his father.”
“After Imran’s father deliver (sic) USB to Rehman Malik, four Pakistani [government intelligence] agents were with his father 24-hour on duty to protect him,” he said. Minhas did not say what was on the USB.
TheDCNF traveled to Pakistan for this story and interviewed numerous residents who interacted with Imran, and they confirmed that he does travel that country with a contingent of armed Pakistani government officials and routinely brags about mysterious political power.
The House Office of Inspector General charged in Sept. 30, 2016 that data was being funneled off the House network by the Awans as recently as September 2016 — shortly before the presidential election.
Nearly Imran’s entire immediate family was on the House payroll working as IT aides to one-fifth of House Democrats, and he began working for the House in 2004. The inspector general, Michael Ptasienski, testified this month that “system administrators hold the ‘keys to the kingdom’ meaning they can create accounts, grant access, view, download, update, or delete almost any electronic information within an office. Because of this high-level access, a rogue system administrator could inflict considerable damage.”
A "good friend" of former FBI Director James Comey's said he is "very much" looking forward to what the upcoming Justice Department inspector general report on the Clinton email investigation has to say about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch — the former Obama administration official now engaged in a war of words with Comey.
Benjamin Wittes, editor in chief of Lawfare, wrote at length Wednesday about the backstory of Comey's new tell-all memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership. While he said Comey isn't without blame for how he handled the FBI's investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's unauthorized private email server, he said the consideration of other decision-makers, "particularly Lynch," paint a full picture for those people who believe the probe was a "train wreck" that cost Clinton the 2016 presidential election.
Noting the "selective outrage" against Comey for announcing the case was reopened less than two weeks before the election, Wittes said, "Lynch was a compromised figure with respect to the emails 'matter.'"
The mention of a "matter" is a reference to Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last year, in which he said Lynch requested he minimize Clinton’s email investigation, urging him to call it a "matter" instead of an "investigation."
Wittes described how Lynch appeared to be "only too happy to have Comey fall on this particular grenade," in reference to how, according to Comey's book, Lynch told him, "Try to look beat up" about the renewed email probe.
"Comey told me this story shortly after it happened, and for a lot of reasons, it has bothered me ever since. Partly because of it, I very much look forward to how the forthcoming inspector general’s report on the Clinton email investigation treats the attorney general," Wittes wrote.
Wittes also decried how Lynch and her deputy, Sally Yates, appeared to finesse the situation so that Comey remained the face of the investigation, even though Lynch never recused herself, even after her controversial tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton.
"Yet Lynch refused to recuse herself, even as she also said she would accept the recommendations of her investigative team — a kind of non-recusal recusal that all but guaranteed that the investigation would not close credibly," Wittes wrote. "Her deputy, Sally Yates, did not persuade her to step aside. In October, when Comey decided to inform Congress of new investigative steps, both women contented themselves with staff-level messages objecting."
