Good Morning! In an interview with Reuters yesterday,Susan Collins said that President Trump has made no effort to reach her about the health care bill. Huh? I remember a picture of her sitting next to POTUS at a meeting with Republican Senators.

Catsmeat,

Zelig is a good analogy. This is the thing about Trump's success as a politician - it's not because he's a billionaire, nor is it just that he is famous.

He's been famous so long that he's a part of popular culture, ingrained in peoples' social memories.

He is a unique person as a candidate. Mark Cuban and Mark Zuckerberg may think that they could run successfully, but they really cannot. Both of them are boring and rather obnoxious, even though they are rich. Neither has a sense of humor, either.

This is a very interesting time in politics because this is a dynamic that hasn't been seen before.

there are more interesting parallels, the niger yellowcake memoranda, were likely from the French

the notion is not entirely new, it was in larry Collins the first horseman, when illustrated the fecklessness of the IAEA, in 1984, (the missing uranium was heisted under the former's nose, and it became part of the Libyan bomb,) so if there was any leakage of nuclear fuel, how best to hide it, except make the claim too incredible to check,

There has been much noise out of the high tech "moguls" about a guaranteed basic income but this at last explains why ...

Musk has been vocal about his fear of AI in the future. Earlier this month for example, he said that AI will cause massive job disruption and that robots "will be able to do everything better than us." The Tesla CEO has also advocated a policy of universal basic income to protect people from the fallout of AI disruption.

Texas Liberty Gal,

During the NYT interview, President Trump said that if had known Sessions would recuse himself, he wouldn't have nominated him.

Sessions in his statement (just read it) recused himself from anything to do with the campaign, not just Russia.

Trump has put out several tweets about the situation, including one saying Sessions was "beleagured" and also that he was weak on going after the emails (Hillary's) and leaks.

Speculation now is whether Trump is setting him up to be fired or force a resignation, or that this is a smoke screen for something else going on.

Advisors this morning are simply saying "it's up to the President."

Scaramucci gave a comment which likened it to marital problems: either reconcile or divorce.

I go back and forth on which it is. Hope this helps you understand!

Porchlight

TLG,

Trump is tweeting about being frustrated with Sessions not going after Hillary. So people are speculating Sessions will be fired.

Personally I won't believe it until I see it. I think something is being gamed out. Trump doesn't usually telegraph these things in the standard political way (what DOES he do in the standard political way?). Also, Trump himself said after the election that he wouldn't go after Hillary. So it's hard to see this as some sort of Sessions insubordination.

FWIW, July 27th was the day that the WH anon said all the stuff would go down. Hinting at Hillary/deep state prosecutions.

Trump has a rally tonight. He's made big announcements at rallies before. Sometimes in advance of rallies.

Actually this was the Consortium News link I meant to post, even more explosive:

https://consortiumnews.com/2017/07/24/intel-vets-challenge-russia-hack-evidence/

"Key among the findings of the independent forensic investigations is the conclusion that the DNC data was copied onto a storage device at a speed that far exceeds an Internet capability for a remote hack. Of equal importance, the forensics show that the copying and doctoring were performed on the East coast of the U.S. Thus far, mainstream media have ignored the findings of these independent studies."
