Given the recent CNN contretemps, is any of this leaking real? Or is it all made up baloney? If the second, Vlad's and Xi's people must be jumping out windows from disinformation.

As for Westbrook v Harden... I'll root with the bookies (easier on kneecaps that way).

A link underlying a The_Donald post 3 shitcanned at CNN list the following as fallout from the fake news on Scaramucci:

Thomas Frank, author of the piece
Eric Lichtbrau, editor and former NYT slime artist
Lex Harris, editor of CNN Investigates

MSNBC next for those three?

Also, I don't think Gus posted that one. ;)

Henry, it is good news so Gus is likely to cut you some slack on the infringement:)

Barbara, praying for a perfect outcome. Always good to have a surgery in the morning when the Doc is well rested.

Jr. had a life saving surgery at 8:00 at night when he was about three weeks old. Was scheduled for 5, but the thorasic surgeon had to take a nap because he was exhausted from a really tough case before Jr.'s.

Talk about pins and needles.

henry

Buckeye, the "s***canned" was in the post title at The_Donald. Gus memes have a long reach.

Barbara,

Good luck with surgery. It is no big deal. I didn't have cataracs but floaters and it only took 10 minutes of laser surgery. You will be fine.

Buckeye,

What goes around comes around in life. Now Buck, jr. is saving the same lifes he was saved. God works in not mysterious ways but contemplative ones.

"Three CNN journalists, including the executive editor in charge of a new investigative unit, have resigned after the publication of a Russia-related article that was retracted.

Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN."

http://money.cnn.com/2017/06/26/media/cnn-announcement-retracted-article/index.html

The one name that sounds familiar is Eric Lichtblau...I believe he has been a lefty prick from way back.

I'd love to think their careers are ruined and their families will have to eat shit to survive, but there are probably many other lefty (i.e. America hating) news outlets that will hire those liars. In fact, the MSM will consider their lies a resume enhancer.

JIB, I have floater issues. I was told that there wasn't much that could be done other than trying to suction them out of the vitreous.

Were floaters your problem, or a sympton of a different problem that the laser fixed?

Jack is Back!

It's actually small tears in the retina. If it gets really bothersome go to your local ophthalmologist and they will refer you to a retina specialist who will zap them. But like mine, after a few years they come back but not permanently. At least for me.

Frau Springstoff Socken

circa strikes a blow for information and transparency:

Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile witness in a case against McCabe, who was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks.

Trump confirms he called health care bill 'mean'
By Caroline Kenny, CNN

Trump admits he called GOP health bill 'mean'

Trump admits he called GOP health bill 'mean' 01:15
Story highlights
"Well, he actually used my term, 'mean.' That was my term," Trump said of Obama.
Obama took to Facebook on Thursday to speak out against the Senate bill, calling it 'mean.'
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of stealing his terminology when Obama said last week that there was a 'fundamental meanness' at the core of the Republican health care bill.

During an interview on "Fox and Friends" Sunday morning, Trump was asked about Obama's Facebook post condemning the Republican health care plan, and the President responded by saying Obama used the descriptor after he originally did.
"Well he actually used my term, 'mean.' That was my term," Trump said.

One down

“I will vote no on mtp,” Collins wrote of the GOP health care repeal bill, using the acronym for Motion to Proceed. Collins added she wanted to work with Democrats and Republicans to “fix” the Affordable Care Act but noted that the Republican bill wouldn’t do that

Wictor is correct, Tuesday is often a big news day for the Trump folks. And the 4th is on Tuesday this year, so tomorrow might be extra flavorful.

Last year I had two small retinal tears stitched up with 1,000 zaps by 2 different lasers on 2 days. Not pleasant, especially for the other eye, but only a few were really painful. Had to keep looking way up and holding still for several hours (with a lot of short breaks).

Ralph L

We're watching a show about MI6 on PBS. Did TM know?

Captain Hate

Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question

He was that boring POS who used to serve the Thursday token lib op ed writer at Rupert's Gazette that was an editorial page practice before he owned it. He wasn't a flagrant name dropper like the noxious Al Hunt, or as delusionally entertaining as Alexander Cockburn; but this uninteresting dweeb acting snotty for no perceivable reason. Kind of like a non-Italian Cuomo. He was perfectly placed at CNN. Maybe they are trying to turn the place around. LOL, it must be something else.

Gosh!! Who would have THUNK that the L-TARD/MARXISTS projecting their sins on Republicans/Conservative and President Trump would open up a can of worms. Lynch CLEARLY obstructed justice by meeting with Bill the Rapist and by telling Comey to call the CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION....a matter. Obama KNEW Russia was messing with US/U.S. and did nothing. He acted as a LIBTARDOCRAT not as a COMMANDER in Chief. Yet NOTHING not a MOTHER EFFING THING has been accused or suggested vis a vis President Trump in any way aiding RUSSIA or being a part of ANYTHING.
So all we are left with is FAKE NEWS, LIES, and LIBTARD LIES. Now it's supposed to be about RUSSIA TRYING TO HELP TRUMP WIN.

The EVIDENCE??? There is NONE.

How do you know when someone is a liar?
When they keep telling you how honest they are, right?

So given that example;
How do you know when someone is unhappy and is ashamed?
When they keep telling you how happy and full of pride they are.

And so, given those two examples;
How do you know when a religion is violent?
