Understood that it can be turned off... doesn't mean that it is? Just something else worth checking - if it gives a definitive location it saves search work.

Deals deals and more deals ... There may have to be more of a art to do the undeals made in the previous US regimes .
Yep, I remember under Bush/Cheney they were whoring our Ports out to foreign ownership.
Both Party are treasons Aholes blinded by short term Money and not 1 Fk giving to this country or its citizens. I really hope trump proves me wrong and gives me reasons to get back at least .001% hope with our gov't that I had completely lost in the past.
The Trump State Department has frozen funding to the controversial Syrian aid group known as the White Hemlets, a non-governmental organization (NGO) which provided the sole evidence that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad reportedly used chemical weapons on his own people in an April 7 attack on the city of Douma, according to CBS News.
Having not received U.S. funding in recent weeks, White Helmets are questioning what this means for the future. They have received no formal declaration from the U.S. government that the monetary assistance has come to a full halt, but the group's people on the ground in Syria report that their funds have been cut off. -CBS News

Hmm. I don't want to freak out people but am i the only one who feels supercharged for months now? I don't exactly know where this feeling is coming from but it's like i'm capable of tearing a rift into reality itself. I never felt this way before. I guess i have Q and i have no name for them yet to thank for it. It's like we are about to reach a new stage of evolution. Strange times ahead.
The bulk of Friday’s questions by the judge were aimed squarely at Michael Dreeben, the deputy solicitor general who is currently working in Mueller’s office.
While Dreeben conceded that Mueller had inherited the probe into Manafort after his May 2017 appointment by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he insisted the office is on solid legal ground and has the power to proceed with prosecuting the case.
“Our investigative scope does cover the activity” in the indictment,” Dreeben told the judge.
“Cover bank fraud in 2005 and 2007? Tell me how!” Ellis retorted.
But he asked why a run-of-the-mill bank fraud case with no “reference to any Russian individual or Russian bank” could not be handed over to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Virginia.
As an example, he pointed to the FBI’s probe into Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, and mused that the special counsel had turned that matter over to prosecutors in Manhattan.
Dreeben declined to discuss the Cohen case, but said that Mueller’s probe into Manafort was authorized by Rosenstein.
Rosenstein’s May 2017 order laying out the scope of the probe, he told the judge, did not reveal all the details because they involve sensitive national security and counterintelligence matters that could not be divulged publicly, but were conveyed to Mueller.
Ellis balked, saying Dreeben’s answer essentially means the Justice Department was “not really telling the truth” about the probe and invites someone to respond by saying, “Come on, man!”
