Josh Hastert:

"Josh then moved to a small firm, Federal Legislative Associates, that lobbied on tech issues. Moving on up, he was soon hired by lobbying firm, Podesta Mattoon, headed by two old friends of his father’s—Tony Podesta, a fellow Illinoisan, and, with Hastert, a student government leader in the 1960s, and Dan Matoon, a close friend/advisor of Hastert’s who ran his first congressional campaign. In 2006, while his father was still holding the Speaker’s gavel, Josh was hired by Google as part of a team of Podesta Matton lobbyists."

There are a lot of things not in doubt about Hillary but they all involve either mortal sins or the criminal code.

Beasts of England

Notify ground control about flying pigs: Todd and Brooks just admitted that using the term 'flyover country' was wrong. They hadn't realized that it was demeaning.

So does this mean we're not pivoting to Asia any more? Bummer:(

Especially after the Phillipines President, who recently told Obama to go to Hell, finally said something nice about Trump.

Oh well, what would Jesus do?

The country that pivots to Asia
surrenders their manufacture of widgets to Asia.

Thanks for the new thread, TM!

Booker should be happy his NJ went for Hillary. I'm sure Trump took note of that.

Truthbetold5

As entertaining as that would be Beast, that is too much power to give a nut job Muslim

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

I believe in free trade.
Having said that it is always a very relative term.
The are many, many trade barriers besides tariffs which is part of the reason these things are longer than the phone book.
The problem is even with the thousand pages of legalese there is no way to prevent those barriers from being used by those states not acting in good faith, which let's face it, is pretty much all of them.
There has to be some sort of hammer besides the endless WTO process to compel compliance. Trump is the first guy willing to be that hammer even though it is the job of every president.
The importance of this goes beyond mere economics, which the free trade at any cost guys don't get. Not only are our citizens harmed by foreign non compliance, our relationship to our government is harmed because we perceive them ignoring the harm
And just as importantly it undermines our power and position in the world when we're seen as this lumbering dumb beast being made a fool by the sharpies.

DebinNC

They hadn't realized that it was demeaning

The Revenge of the Bitter Clingers in PA and MI might have delivered a wake up call.

Amen, Iggy.

 Momto2

They hadn't realized that it was demeaning

Yeah, well that is one of the less demeaning things they have said - what about the rest?

clarice b. for Brainiac

Front page of the WaPo--Is Trump ONLY going to rely on those who supported him? A wise man said in similar words--the media which told us Trump would never win is now telling us how he should operate?
Oh, and for the Comet Pizza believers, the other front page story is how a blogger is being sued for defamation for repeating scandalous lies about Melania.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Bozo should have declared himself the first Trans Pacific president.

Captain Hate

From the last thread

The idea of Ayotte was floated by George Will and Jen Rubin in the WaPo.

Why does anybody listen to two people who have consistently been wrong about everything having to do with politics this year? Plus I really owe Fox's 8 pm-er for providing visual evidence of everything clarice reported on what a delusional harridan Rubin is. I hereby apologize to clarice for thinking she was exaggerating.

Truthbetold5

Clarice

Let Comet Pizza sue. Discovery is a bitch for dirtbags!

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Yeah, after deplorable, irredeemable, racist, homophobic, misogynist, xenophobic, fascist, Nazi knuckledragger, flyover country has a certain appeal.
Just keep flying over it creeps.

Truthbetold5

Clarice

Wanna bet Comet Pizza does not sue anyone?

Captain Hate

Rove News Sunday is speculating on how much Trump wants to blow up Washington. Chris Wallace is already accusing Trump of lying about amending ZippyCare. Kellyanne Conway is handling this dolt well.

Captain Hate

Kellyanne is declaring a mandate and that bold things will be proposed in the first one hundred days.

Captain Hate

Wallace is claiming lobbyists are leading the transition team. Conway says you need experienced people and the gravy train is officially over.

Captain Hate

Kellyanne says Priebus and Bannon worked closely during the campaign and will have prominent roles going forward.

Truthbetold5

Clarice

Do you think it is possible that the Podestas are pediphile's?

Captain Hate

Wallace is really taxing my non profanity pledge.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

I have no idea if there is a shred of truth to the pizza story. The evidence seems awfully tenuous so far.

I would note however the large number of neighbors who, when asked afterward, recall the "very nice man" who just finished shooting ten or twenty people.

At the very least you have to wonder about the sanity of a guy who voluntarily attaches himself to "bat shit crazy" David Brock, who is about as repulsive and unscrupulous a creature to ever slither about the DC swamp: an inordinately truculent water moccasin in a powdered wig.

Truthbetold5

He has a close relationship with the Podestas as well.

Captain Hate

Kellyanne considers the Searchlight creep an irresponsible moron who has let his constituents down by being a loudmouthed jackass and egging on the paid protestors. Chris Wallace just got worked badly and came off very poorly.

clarice b. for Brainiac

Couls be, Iggy. OTOH anonymity of the IT often encourages people to publish things they'd not publish if they thought they'd be accountable for them. Reddit posters have turned up a lot..a good deal of which is utter b.s.
Just as one has to weigh carefully media acounts, you should be sceptical of things you read from people unwilling to put their names on it.

Old Lurker

Chris Wallace and most of his FNC pals can DIAF.

(I said "most", but the truth is I would be hard pressed to name a single one for whom I have any respect remaining.)

We should reconsider letting Cap'n off the hook regarding making him watch that show so we don't have to.

One of many reasons I have so much awe and respect for Clarice!

Thanks. OL

Captain Hate

The Kevin McCarthy RINO makeover is beginning and he points out that the GOP has always had a plan ready to replace ZippyCare and that people will not lose coverage. Says he and Ryan will work well with Trump to get the country working again. McCarthy sounds like he's on board with MAGA. Border will be secured with or without a wall using technology. Zippy never had any real infrastructure plans. Washington has to change and maybe McTurtle should STFU about term limits. Wallace wants poor Curb Dive to not be investigated any more.

Beasts of England

One last comment about 'flyover country'. Look at the country map of election results. Any crops being grown in those few blue dots? Cattle or dairy farms? Coal, oil, or gas production? Manufacturing? No. None.

In fairness, there are banking and brokerage hubs in those blue dots, but there's nothing unique or functionally requisite about those locales, it's merely where they coalesced.

Said another way: the country can easily survive without the blue dots; it can't without those in red.

Threadkiller

Of the three, henry, only one won the Presidency.

Why do you care what people say about James Alefantis, the Podestas and their fairy band of deviants?

Captain Hate

George Will is optimistic about Trump's conservatism. There will be a conservative majority on the Supreme Court. Term limits are bad. Ben Domenech is optimistic on draining the swamp because Trump is serious about delivering on his promises. Julie Pace shills for business as usual. Charles Lane says the only person who can make Trump look bad is Trump.

>>>Maybe Sasquatch is behind all of it.<<<

i think its Squatchy around here.

Captain Hate

Lane admits he didn't understand how widespread Trump's appeal was to people who felt forgotten. White evangelicals showed up and blacks didn't. Pace: Rodham was wrong to blame Comey and was covering her own poor campaign and lack of a message. Domenech: after eight years of Zippy's failures, voters wanted a change from insiders. Will: donks are in tatters and GOP is in stronger position than ever. GOP was united by Zippy telling people what to do. Lane says global warming crap wrecked the donks. Slick was the only person in Curb Dive's inner circle who wanted to concentrate on working class whites and was ignored according to Pace.

And that's a wrap...

Beasts of England

Bernie is doubling-down on the idea that Trump only won because his campaign was based on hate. You're right, Bernie - you're right!! Keep getting that message out there! And I thank you in advance. ;)

That's an interesting point, Captain. It's easy to argue that many Trump voters were Reagan democrats or Clinton republicans. That Cankle's crew would ignore Clenis (the most astute retail and wholesale politician alive) in favor of her instincts or Mook's is hilarious.

Time, effort & money wasted all because Hillary refused to follow our laws & regulations.
Then when caught....she was all sneaky & slow walked & blocked all efforts to get information.

Beasts, my best friend had his HILLARY FOR PRISON sign stolen from his front yard. His neighbor is a lib retired public employee, who had FEINGOLD and RODHAM signs in his yard.

Clarice-FH Buckley is simply wrong in that article. PISA is in fact not a 'test' as he should know if he actually knew anything about K-12 education. I have read his book The Way Back and he simply states that School Choice is necessary and that it is not supported because UMC parents do not want their children to have to compete against others who are well-educated. No support, just a rather nasty assertion.

The Bradley and John Olin Foundations have been pushing a certain vision for the transformation of education since at least 1982 in Olin's case when it funded the Excellence in Education Network that Diane ravitch started at Columbia with several other ed profs including Chester Finn. Bradley gets created in 1985 with part of the money from the purchase of the company based in Milwaukee and immediately begins funding 'ed reforms'.

I have all the books on the actual intentions going back to the 80s and when these same 'reforms' were being pushed via brookings. FH Buckley himself has said he is not an expert on ed and defers to the man at TPPF. The Bradley Foundation published his book The Way Back through their Encounter Books publishing arm.

Knowing all these connections and a lot more as I am tired of typing, I was at a Georgia Tea party meeting yesterday where 4 different Atlas Network entities were hyping School Choice as the panacea for education just like that NY Post article.

It is a well-laid trap in actuality and when I asked a question yesterday of the Heartland Institute Education Transformation Project Manager, Lennie Jarratt referencing the new ESA paper TPPF published and asking about the assessment requirement it would impose on homeschoolers and all private schools, I got absolutely murderous looks of hatred from audience members. I have gotten those looks before when I am clarifying a point that actually does go to the essence of the whole reason for the School Choice hype.

I was waiting until after the elction to start writing up what appears to me to be a long standing, well-financed pattern of deceit around School Choice as the way to get around previous outcries. The Olin F also financed the program for judges Buckley is in charge of at GMU.

If Buckley acknowledges he is not an expert on K-12 education, which he does, why does he keep writing about it> he writes about it because this is, as Lennie Jarratt, said yesterday, the way to fundamentally transform American education. The transformation though has nothing to do with the transmission of knowledge or any traditional notion of what schools are for.

As I have said, this is only fixable if the admissions it is a trap, which are fully documented, get out in the open. This is not something Trump or his family could know. We are exceptionally foolish though not to use admissions against interest when we gets our hands on them. Those admissions exist. I have them. They come from Buckley's financial benefactors as well as the funders of numerous GMU centers, including their Center on Neuroeconomics.

I feel like I am hitting my head against a Wall of Wishful Thinking here on the issue of School Choice. I capitalize it because as I have said it has a clear history and a clear intent and both the Bradley and Olin Foundations have been supporters of the radical vision of K-12 that has nothing to do with school as historically understood. Why on earth should we ignore what they admit to just because those admissions were supposed to have been buried under the lapse of time and refusals to cite the old books in recent decades?

Captain Hate

Beasts, Curb Dive was hamstrung by Zippy being involved in her campaign. She couldn't address the people Slick wanted her to without admitting how (redacted) up the last eight years had been for them.

and what exactly did Hillary ever DO for leftists?
What great lefty laws did she write up when she was a Senator?...I know she voted for the Iraq war, but what else did she do?

She sold favors to Clinton donors while she was Secretary of State. She took care of Clinton Foundation business.....but she wasn't even plugged into the actual State Dept. system.
What did she ever DO?

"RIP Leon Russell"

Last time I saw him was on the tube with Elton John. It was a poignant performance (and the first time I had seen all that hair!). If only I had started staying at the Beacon Hotel a few years earlier, I might have been able to catch their show live, right next door. I didn't realize till just now, trying to locate a youtube of them together that John actually opened for Russell on tour in the 70s. Russell said that they hadn't talked for 35 years, when his phone rang and "it was Elton John, calling from a safari vacation somewhere in Africa," to propose doing an album together. Lot of history there!

Beasts of England

Elton John was a big fan of his, JM Hanes! I'm sure that was a great show - good for you!!

Old Lurker

"...It's not just the punishment that matters, deterence is important also..."

This is why James and I both have advocated for, whatever happens to the three Clintons, the unrelenting prosecution of all of their enabling staff people. This needs to be the equivalent of the Nuremberg Trials so no employee of people like this will ever again be able to say they were just following orders of their well connected political masters.

Hillary needs to be prosecuted for several reasons chief among them to deter future politicians from doing the same thing.

Sure puts Obama in a tight spot if he thinks a blanket pardon for just Hillary makes the mess go away. What would he say? "I pardon Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton and anybody who works or worked for them or on their behalf including for their Foundation and any of its subsidiaries or ventures for any and all crimes they committed or may have committed in the past up to and including this date." How would that be for his legacy?
