Open Thread

Nail bombs in St Petersburg subway station killed 11.

Much of the surveillance "incidentally" collected on Trump was actually just intercepts of foreign officials talking to each other about Trump. Not Russia, either.

Sara Carter at Circa:

The intelligence reports included some intercepts of Americans talking to foreigners and many more involving foreign leaders talking about the future president, his campaign associates or his transition, the sources said. Most if not all had nothing to do with the Russian election interference scandal, the sources said, speaking only on condition of anonymity given the sensitive nature of the materials.

What "national security" value does this have? It sure just looks like Susan Rice and others in the Obama Administration were just using foreign intelligence collection as a source of opposition research against the Republican candidate.

Adam Housely reports Nunes had to go view these documents himself in the Eisenhower Building SCIF because the intelligence agencies from whom he requested this information were "slow-rolling" him.

Mark Levin discusses Evelyn Farkas' virtual admission she was a recipient of the leaks. I wonder if Evelyn Farkas knows Susan Rice.

And finally, the SEALs are going to continue experimenting with "neuro-priming" electrical brain stimuation, which allegedly promotes vigilance, focus, and learning, but putting the brain into a "hyperplastic" state where it absorbs training and practice more readily.

If that sounds good to you, you can take home a Halo "Sport" model for the low, low price of $749.

Of course, if you want to really live on the edge, you can try electrifying your brain with a scratch-built rig for $20.

Needless to say, I'm not advocating that.
