Nice digging TM! n dimensional bureaucratic chess at work.

Here;s another thing I came across. Since these three DA's are notoriously liberal, looks like the whole thing has been a set up.

McConnell needs to get Sessions confirmed quickly.

TM too bad you don't work for the trump administration -- maybe you could help coordinate their shit show.

DHS Sec learning of order while its signed. Congres s completely out of the loop.

sounds like the we are in for 4 years of complete incompetence.

Can't imagine whats going to happen when something unexpected occurs.

At least there's transparency and not media blackout secrecies.

.@POTUS has named Dana Boente, US Attorney for the Eastern District of VA as Acting Attorney General. Sally Yates has been relieved.

As I asked in the thread, she was the us atty for the northern district of Ga since 2010, anybody know anything else about Yates.

The only reference i see about the visa revision law is a mischaracterization in Carlos slim, in an aside about GOP reactions

KevlarKid -- lol, that has to be a joke. SeanSpicer is on track to out do BaghdadBob -- and this is week 1. Completele, total lies, every day. not even controversial. just straight out lies. continuously. unprecedented in either republican or democratic administration.


I guess character matters.

I use to think Republicans thought that was important, but I guess not. Serial liar, adulterer, cheater, who de-frauds the gullible (c.f. Trump U) -- now President of the U.S.
good job guys.

CHARACTER. Please teach your kids.

Sally Yates - fifteen seconds of flame.

Momto2

sbw - sounds like an excellent headline to me! :)

Yates should have just resigned.

But lets face it -- Trump presidency is a shit show. Wait till shit gets real.

CHARACTER. Teach your kids -- don't grab women by the pussy. Don't stiff contractors.

lyle

Eat shit, jor.

jor

Trump could institute Marshall law tomorrow because of negative media coverage and the idiots here would support him.

There is no line of deceny, humanity, or value that Trump can cross that you guys wouldn't support him.

As Trump said, he could shoot someone on 5th avenue, and you morons would still support him.

Grab em by the pussy!!!!

Captain Hate

and this is week 1

Time to adjust jor's prescription.

Beasts of England

That may have been the shortest-lived dem victory EVAH!! lol

dublindave

Sally fired.

Oh, but it was gloriously poetic while it lasted, was it not? The working gal V's the Dictator. The small town lady with an education and a dream V's the most powerful asshole on earth.

I love it. Yates was briefly the re-incarnation of Oskar Shindler. Innocent children were waiting to be sent to their deaths and Sally Yates stepped forward and said "Not on my watch".


There's beauty in that. And the fact cheto dust fired her so quickly and brutally turns her into an instant Martyr. Just like Jesus(who also didn't want to send children to their deaths-or held in warzones).


Sigh. Sally Yates and Obama in one day. Sigh.

lyle

He's gonna need an IV drip.

Beasts of England

What's 'Marshall law'?

Skoot

Trump: "...for individuals travelling from seven dangerous places..."

I'm partial to the British spelling myself. This sure is fun!

jor

lyle -- please name something Trump could do that would have you stop supporting him?

Lift sanctions on Russia? Etch Putin's face on Mount Rushmore? Drone attack an inner city school

There isn't a line. FACE IT. That was "grab em by the pussy".

Don't worry Conservative hero Ryan already named something that would lose his support and he caved like the con-man he is.

Like I said, conservatives use to care about character --- now they just care about POWER.

lyle

Sally's virtue signal just flat-lined. Troll pustules hardest hit.

Marshall law

Rocket surgery being practiced.

Beasts, a Marshall stack pretty much is the law. Especially turned up to 11.

Trump fired a competent, compassionate woman from her job because she wanted to protect human beings?

This shit just writes itself. How long did she stand up to him for? An hour. Two hours. We could call it "180 minutes", cast Ashley judd and ensure it wins 15 academy awards.

+++++++++++

So, where is all this deception and treachery in the new administration?

Did POTUS appoint a shadow cabinet in broad daylight to run the country without congressional approval?

And has the American Left media covered everything Trump in fawning, glowing praise for accomplishments he never had, books he never wrote, girlfriends he never had?

But I digress.

Mustang Sally has to wait for that level of achievement. One has to experience finding "a public hair" in their jello salad as I recall...fuels the outrage on her behalf by all the angels that will be trying to land on her shiny new "victim" pin.

I can see the buttons and bumperstickers now: "Sally was right."

Or some such [redact]ery.

'There is a 50/50 chance things are going to get a lot worse.'

Good - that means there is a 50/50 chance things are going to get a lot better! Remember when a new or substitute teacher came in the room and the "bad" kids had to test him or her?

These bad kids will soon realize Trump means business and their acting out will subside. As the economy and jobs improve, his approval will climb IN SPITE OF the lies from the enemedia.

I pray there is not a terrorist attack but if there is - the week's actions will be seen as mild compared to what needs to be done.

I'm reminded of when they redid the petshop sketch in the e Thatcher era. There was no excuses they got a refund.

Bummer:(

---Sally Yates is gone before she ever got a chance to meet with Bill Clinton on the tarmac to talk about golf.

---Sally Yates is gone before she ever got a chance to be held in contempt for lying to Congress under oath about Fast & Furious.

---Sally Yates is gone before she ever got a chance to call the Fort Hood Jihadist's murders "Workplace Violence."

---Sally Yates is gone before she ever got a chance to lie to a Federal Judge by accusing James Rosen of FOX News of being a "co-conspitrator" in a crime.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I knew they would fire her when I read Dershowitz said she was wrong.

Her statement was full of "feels" but no legal backing.

Also, she was on that march with Madonna, right up in front, which right there should have been grounds for firing if for nothing more than unprofessionalism and bad taste.

I bet we don't see much more grandstanding and virtue signaling from the holdovers, who are on borrowed time, anyway.

"Trump fired a competent, compassionate woman from her job because she wanted to protect human beings?"

Yer kidding right?

That alpha hotel is cashing in on her 15 seconds of fame as previously described. Or perhaps positioning herself for a carpetbagging Senate bid in New York? (Would the vacuous Princess Caroline chance being soiled by a stint in this political climate.)

Did Sally the Pony owe Chuckie the Seltzer Salesman? Lo Lo Lynch? Comey the Stain Man?

Everything rhetorically is for the "cheeeeldrin" with these EmoCrat pukes.

But then again, they butcher the unborn human beings "out of compassion."

"Obaaaamaaa good. Trump bad. Obaaama good. Trump bad.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

It's going to be almost too much fun watching these shit-for-brains trolls and proles stepping on a brand new rake every morning that Trump laid out for them the night before.

Every time they catch another handle with their formerly buck teeth they'll consider it just mounting evidence of Trump's incompetence.

Trump - the value of being vastly underestimated by your enemies...and friends.

Anyone know if Trump's new EO about not being allowed to be a lobbyist for 5 years applies to Sally?

I hear Starbucks is looking for DOJ Refugees to make baristas.

dublindave

No, Ashley Judd's too on the nose for Sally Yates. I'm thinking maybe Kate Blanchet. And we'll call it "Sally". Just "Sally". Sally,she's like Sully only she's a girl and she's a lawyer. But like Sully,Sally is saving the lives of people she doesn't know.

And we'll spend the first hour of the movie following the detainees from whence they came....get an insight in their story before Sally makes her first appearance.

Maybe "180 minutes" is better.

One more reason to end the filibuster, an unconstitutional super-majority requirement.

I don't think it's unconstitutional per se; the founders left it up to the Senate to decide how to deliberate over things. If the founders saw McCain and Schumer they'd think the country was made up of unserious idiots.
