With the news breaking of the execution of several Chinese nationals who worked for the CIA, I wanted to find out a bit more. Just how badly compromised was our intelligence network? Yes, it has been a few years since the executions that occurred between 2010 and 2012, but a roll up of a spy network like that can hurt intelligence gathering and operations for decades. It can lead to some very bad surprises for a country like the United States.

I made contact with some of my sources in the intelligence community. Most agreed that it was both bad and embarrassing. The predictions and damage assessments I was hearing had a very wide range, and I decided that it was worth the risk of contacting a source who is a bit higher up and in the know on these things.

Exclusive — Jon Gabriel Plans to Skip CPAC, Pre-Eminent Conservative Gathering, in 2016

 

Jon-Speaker2MESA, ARIZ. — Beloved Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel plans to snub the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this year, and won’t show up at all, Ricochet.com has learned exclusively.

CPAC is hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU) in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C. In 2016, the conference will be held right after Super Tuesday from March 2 until March 5. Because DC is just lovely in the dead of winter.

That Gabriel is skipping the pre-eminent annual conservative gathering of thousands of activists in a presidential election year is extraordinarily telling about the direction of his career as management desperately sings his praises in a last-ditch bid to help Ricochet get 10,000 members.

Welcome to the PIT, the seedy underbelly of Ricochet.  I’m Whiskey Sam, and I’ll be your tour guide to degradation for the next 90 days.  Who gave  the keys to the monkey?  I was drafted volunteered  after learning they were looking for someone warped enough to think keeping the PIT going is a good idea. What is […]

In the acrimonious aftermath of the 2012 elections, things got pretty heated here in Ricoland. 10cents started a post called “People I Hate On Ricochet” as a joke-oil over troubled waters as it were-where other members could dive right in and start slinging over the top outrageous insults at each other, thus earning the nickname […]

We had a great time this weekend at the Mackinac Island Meet-Up!  If you get the chance, I encourage you to attend at least one.  Attending these allows you to meet people from other stations in life you would not otherwise get the opportunity to meet, and you leave having forged closer friendships with them.

Melissa tells me that if I don’t put up a post about the meetup, bad things will happen. Drove seven hours to get here; got caught by some crazy road construction in a town of Polacks in northern Wisconsin, and was headed off by a parade in Michigan. Missed the last Star Line Ferry, made […]

… and does Ricochet need a safeword? Some singular word members can leave in the comments when they notice a thread isn’t working right? Supposing PMs are working again, whatever happened to the PMs sent during the period when they weren’t working? Will they arrive someday or are they forever lost in the ether? Several […]
