Trump is enough of a pig and a menace

Sounds like projection to me.

Via JIB, here's Rush's take on this from the tail end of the last thread:

The Russians-Stole-the-Election Meme Vanishes

Captain Hate

I knew before clicking it was Taibbi. My mental image has him wearing a pink pussy hat; FYI Matt, that's not a good look.

narciso

They were actually more than thorough with red queen:

http://circa.com/politics/fbi-probe-of-donald-trump-and-russia-during-election-yielded-no-evidence-of-crimes

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I still say the following occured:

1. Obama had someone illegally surveilling Trump for petty revenge, to find a supposed scandal they assumed would be there. (As if someone who had been thinking about running since 2012 wouldn't have made sure everything was on the up and up, but I digress.)

2. Obama never thought he would win the nomination, let alone the presidency. When he looked like he was going to win the nomination (and then get Secret Service protection adn electronic sweeps of his residence and offices, they had an "Oh sh*t moment." They went to the FISA court to request permission to request permission to spy (this word will now be used because I am not sure which type of electronic spying they did).

3. They were turned down, which caused further panic. They started talking about Russia and such. At this time, they probably got the CIA to go into the Trump server and leave Russian fingerprints.

4. When the Podesta emails were released, it gave them the perfect excuse to go BACK to the FISA court, getting a warrant knowing full well they would find traces of fake Russian hacking.

This all was to cover what they assumed the Secret Service would find.

Then, true disaster! Trump won the election!

So NOW, they took the fake evidence (which only they knew about) and ginned up the Russia story to eleventy. The idea was to create doubt in the public's mind with the fake Russian footprints in the server.

Comes Wikileaks, and now THAT plot is shot. Trump has them dead to rights on this. I imagine that meeting this afternoon with Pompeo and Kelly was very interesting.

And, like magic, the Russian story seems to have disappeared, with cautionary warnings from Rolling Stone and others.

Jail them all, is my opinion.

The press and media will never quit laughing with glibness and excitement.

I would call them morons, but I think they're much worse. Their intent is to destroy. Their enjoyment too evil.

Jack is Back!

Matt Taibbi is a real POS and isn't funny enough or intelligent enough to be the next Christopher Hitchens or a Breitbart, who he slandered in his RS obituary.

If he is issuing warnings to the Dems then you know its all smoke and no fire with Trump and the Russians.

Jack is Back!

Jack,

I think it's actually worse than that. I think the press has colluded with the dems on national security violations.

How many press people are now guilty of those violations? How many New York Times, Washington post, Buzzfeed, CNN and others are in danger of jail time along with Brennan, Clapper, and their minions?

I sure would like to know who has hired lawyers.

MM,

Never happen. But you can put that on your Christmas list if you still believe in Santa Claus:)

Its one of those scandals where they will decide for the benefit of the country not to bring all this to life but make sure they either die an early death or disappear of the face of the newspapers and TV.

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/03/09/paul-ryan-outlines-why-it-takes-three-steps-for-obamacare-repeal-and-replacement/#more-129724

This is a cogent explanation, and one I think bears attention.

Please read the entire thing. Most important is that the prior "repeal" bills were not strictly that, but were rather "defunding" bills.

Seems to me a lot of Freedom Caucus members and talk radio hosts should address this fine point, which is very important.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

Perhaps you are right.

In a normal administration, that would happen. We aren't exactly in Kansas anymore, so who knows?

However, it does seem to me to be a huge chunk of leverage for President Trump.

No one in this house understands why I follow politics. It's so disheartening, since I find it better than television. Highly entertaining.

I took the time to read this write up on the outgoing EPA Environmental Justice leech, Mustafa Ali:

Chief Environmental Justice Official at EPA Resigns, With Plea to Pruitt to Protect Vulnerable Communities

What an obscenity to American Taxpayers that we were paying this guy to do anything. Here's the only comforting lines in this total bilge of an article:

...Meanwhile, the power that Ali once wielded inside the EPA has been dissipated. His position as senior adviser to the EPA administrator was eliminated in January when Obama's EPA chief Gina McCarthy left...
...An internal memo obtained by multiple news outlets on March 1 called for a complete dismantling of the office of environmental justice.

Thank Gaia for small favors!

Four trash states and Hawaii want an open borders policy for everybody. I assume they've lined up some black robed tyrants who hate the Constitution to rule in their favor. The people plugging for this are the ones who like to point out Rodham won the popular vote.

They're afraid an investigation would reveal that the Dems weren't hacked by Russia but that their own members gave those emails to WikiLeaks. How many laptops did Comey let them destroy?

repost--easy dinner

KK, I just ate two pounds of broccoli. All by myself.

The recipe is for a sauce for pasta, but we like to eat it as is w parmesan cheese.

4 T olive oil
6-8 roughly chopped garlic cloves
red pepper flakes
ground black pepper

Cook until garlic cloves start to turn golden. Add two pounds fresh or frozen broccoli, chopped. Salt. Cover halfway w water. Cover pan; cook for an hour or so, til broccoli disintegrates.
Uncover and cook off any excess water while stirring to allow broccoli to fall apart.

We ladle it in to pasta bowls, cover w grated Regiano, and enjoy.

What can I say--I was hungry!

Now I'll begin my intermittent fasting til noon tomorrow.

No. 1 Kansas on the cusp (2.5 seconds left) of losing to No. 8 TCU up by 3, 85-82.

Porchlight

So the broccoli breaks down and becomes a sauce? Interesting. Family loves broccoli, we could totally try that.

Jack is Back!

TCU wins! Looks like March Madness is open to lots of teams to win.

MM's theory @ 4:20 seems totally plausible to me.

TCU, seeded No. 8 and Kansas, seeded No. 1 in their conference tournament. Sorry for any confusion.

It won't be long until we see her story on TV: "My humping the Trump and Russia connection 24/7 landed me in the ER."

Time unwittingly makes a pro-Trump cover. This looks to me like he's holding the monument up while tweeting:

I watched Ryan closely.

I think what he said was "we have a 200 day plan and we are right on track" What I think he meant was "we are going to coast for 199 days and then have a GREAT Day 200."

Old Lurker

Still not sleeping on the Ledge Frau because I trust Trump to know what he's dealing with.

But I am disgusted with the lack of help he gets from his team in Congress.

Seriously, if you were working for Obama/Hillary, how could their own hand picked leader do less in the Senate than McConnell is getting done? And could they find a more unrealistic fast talkin wonk than Ryan?

Every time I listen to Ryan, I am reminded of the Razzle-Dazzle scene from Chicago.

From the failing New York Times. Don't have a link, as this quote showed up on Reddit. It IS interesting, though:

Boldface corporate names widely discussed as contenders for the next Democratic presidential nomination include chief executives like Howard Schultz of Starbucks, Robert A. Iger of Disney and Marc Benioff of Salesforce.com, along with Sheryl Sandberg, the Facebook chief operating officer, and Oprah Winfrey, chairwoman and chief executive of Harpo Inc., which owns half of the Oprah Winfrey Network. -


Bwahahaha!!!

What is the NEW YORK TIMES?? Never heard of it.

Winfrey versus Trump in 2020! No need for those stupid debate rules from the Debate Commission. Winfrey and Trump can just interview each other on TV, and engage in a tweet and Facebook war!

Pagar, A bacon, ham and sausage supporter

266 pages full of reasons to support Democrats and we are supposed to believe these guys are lining up to try to get the nomination?

Jane

I hope this doesn't sound cocky because it is not intended to be. As a lawyer I have always looked at how I can win. Because I have always been on the plaintiff side, I never took a case that I didn't believe we should and could win. But there is a lot more than facts and law involved.

I always made a point of knowing absolutely everything I could about my opponent, including things that could hurt and embarrass him. I never chose to use that stuff unless I needed it to bring him to the table. I figured out opposing counsel's sweet spots, and worked to use them to my advantage. And that was the goal always - to get them to the table, which I was (back in the day) pretty good at.

I think that is what Trump is spectacular at. No one leaves his presence - left right or center without saying nice things, e/g/ "he listened" being the most common.

I am very very impressed. I don't know how much he can pull off, but I haven't seen anyone's mind games beating his so far. And frankly I think that is what it is all about.

Thomas Collins

As of last week, I have "semi" retired. I now work 3 days a week - and for only a few hours. it sort of seems like 1. I'm getting dumber, and 2. I should be having fun. So that's the direction.

You underestimate your clout, in my opinion.

I can pontificate all day long on here, but I really have no experience other than general observations based on my life experience, which is not wide-ranging.

You bring to the table specific knowledge about negotiating on behalf of clients. This is something I really appreciate.
