Nyet. It was obvious from the get go (well at least from Ted Kennedy's abortive campaign for President) that the Dems and Russians go together like ketchup and mayonnaise.

Dave (in MA)

Я вижу что ты тут делал

lyle

the Dems and Russia go together ...

...like Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.

Tom Maguire

Hmm. I don't think Dave in MA wrote the Russian for "Trust but verify". Is the real gag that he wrote in Sanskrit?

Dave (in MA)

Bye-bye Rinsed Prius

I'm sure no one noticed how fast the MFM went from wishing you know who would hurry up and die with dishonor to hailing him as Jesus.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

John Kelly to be COS; Reince out?

Dave (in MA)

Rooskie for "I see what you did there", or at least Google xlate says so.

Another Bob

Wonder if the tweet is how Reince found out?

New speculation: Sessions to DHS.

I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American....

..and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration

GATEWAY PUNDIT EXCLUSIVE: Reince Priebus Was Scratching Scaramucci Off of President’s Schedule

lyle

Now watch the MFM start defending and praising Rinsed Prius.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

So Comey intentionally leaked his memo to cause Mueller to be appointed to investigate a plan by Putin to generate a fake scandal to fool dopes like Comey.
Top. Men.

henry

Watch Reince land a job at GS in nanoseconds.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ignatz,

That's how I read it, too.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

Marlene,

Let me know if I can help, altho I can't think of anything I could do that would help.

Dave (in MA)

Either that or he can be put in charge of vaccuuming the farts out of the seats on Trump Force One.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

henry,

No, I xpect he will get an offer from CNN or MSNBC as a "conservative" commentator.

Dave (in MA)

Maybe Mueller can get the DHS job.

lyle

"Scratching Scaramucci Off" sounds like deadly plague caused by Amon Ra.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

I get the award for dumbest question of the day:

What is a cloud? Is it just moisture, and does it get barker the more moisture it absorbs.

(I probably should save embarrassment and look it up, but since I was just at the pool staring at them, I thought I would ask.)

Dave (in MA)

Or one of the steps in cleaning the ciabatta pan.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

Okay I looked it up! Ignore me.

Dave (in MA)

LOL Jane

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jane,

Exactly right. Clouds are condensed water vapor (sometimes with some dust included). The denser, the darker.

Clouds have different names depending on their shapes. Cumulus (fluffy), stratus ( thin and wispy) etc.

I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country. We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!

Old Lurker

I thought a cloud was where you stored data until Google wants to read it.

matt, deplore me if you must

Scaranooch! Scaramooch! Can you do the Fandango?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Old Lurker,

Ain't no way my info goes into The Cloud. Apple keeps asking me and I ignore them (on my phone).

glasater

My Russian grandparents didn't know what catsup or mayo even is. Neither one was served at their dinner table.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Mooch's wife has filed for divorce. She says she can't take his unbridled ambition.

If you ask me, she is asking for a large settlement in return for keeping her mouth shut

If he is free, every dame in the world is either going to be after him or accusing him of unwelcome advances.

Threadkiller

I wonder if Scaramucci was trash talking Trump during the Walker and ¡JEB! campaigns to gain the trust of the dipshit establishment blowhards?

#Mole

henry

OL, Google reads it right away, NSA has the delay

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

Any chance this is an opening to move Sessions to Homeland Security?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Threadkiller,

Come sit here by me. I like how your mind works.

Threadkiller

;-)

matt, deplore me if you must

Mooch's wife is apparently a big Trump hater. That might explain it. Awkward at those in-house gettogethers.

henry

TK, mole as in infiltrating the stupid? As if Wilson or Rove or Erickson or Kristol could curb their ego long enough to consider such a guy might be smarter than they are? Good call if so.

Clarice

Iggy. Brilliant stolen. Thanks for the genius sum up.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Of course, this is all out of my imagination, but Scaramucci has been friends with Trump for some time. Hence there is plausibility for TK's theory.

I also like the idea of Kraft's plane being used for Comey, with possible legal taping.

My sister pointed out to me back last summer that she thinks Trump had his own intelligence, based on stuff from hotel staff, friends on Wall Street, Hollywood, etc.

So I find the whole idea hilarious. It's probably fantasy, but after all he DID say he was Batman. HA!

Bonded particulates and limited angular refraction due to density make clouds darker.

Threadkiller

This quote from the Scaramucci rant got me thinking:


"You’re an inherited-money dude from Queens County; bring it, Donald.”

This is exactly the way the Trump haters think. There is no way possible that Scaramucci believes it to be true. And he ends with "bring it?"

Hahaha!

I'll bet he and Trump laughed their asses off with that playground taunt while, at the same time, pussies like ¡Jeb! were tickled that a big league goon was going to fight for them.

Old Lurker

Also I do wonder if POTUS actually can remove special treatment for Congress under O'Care. We have fun with that idea, but I wonder if that is covered by all those "The Secretary Shall" regs?

Seems like a political home run to me, especially if done immediately.

Captain Hate

jor, welcome to the team!

rse

KK-you don't know the half of it on nd. See where character goes quickly? https://www3.nd.edu/~dnarvaez/NarvaezISPP.pdf

Remember Marx, in his early work that was late to be translated, asserts that the true revolution is to be in morals and ethics. Absolutely what the classroom is now to be about.

henry

CH, I noticed Reince was not at the WH Foxconn announcement -- even though he gets credit for pointing Trump to the empty AMC plant in Kenosha while on the helicopter to SnapOn Tools. Walker, Ryan, and Johnson were on stage with Pence and Gou. But not Reince. Kind of a "thanks for playing, but now sit down while the big boys show you how to do it right."

I wonder on DHS... Sheriff Clark or Arpaio would blow gaskets everywhere. :)

Barbara

Pro or con?

That depends on your zip code, Iggy.

Threadkiller

Jor!! Does this surprise you?

Hop on in, the water is fine!

Another Bob

Jane, I made the same Sessions to DHS speculation above.

It would sort of make sense - wasn't one of Session's "specialties" immigration?

Would he require another confirmation hearing?

I'm guessing Rachel Brand would definitely require a confirmation hearing, but couldn't she be recess-appointed for a while?

lyle

So jor proves he doesn't actually read the comments here but swoops in to merely insult us. That's the only explanation if he ever thought there was love lost between most (not all) of us and the repukes.

rse

beasts-should have brought hubby to dinner that night. Honestly that is just how he would have described it.

My discussion on nd is not meant to say a certain talented jomer's kids are not getting a fabulous ed there. Merely that as an institution there is a strong agenda being pushed from there in the social sciences via education.

My definition of third tier by the way is a state school that is essentially open admissions without a minimum sat score< Being a history prof at a place with few students actually wanting to learn history is just not a ringing endorsement.

Captain Hate

Good points, henry.

Trump has spent half a year playing nice nice with those dickbags and those simpletons thought they could impede everything into Uniparty stasis. Now he unleashes the beast.

Welcome to the hard way, bitches.

Old Lurker

A-Bob "but couldn't she be recess-appointed for a while?"

Ben Cardin was the most recent Senator (today) to allude to the August Recess not being a "real" recess which they can do as they did with Obama...just so POTUS cannot recess appoint anybody.

Threadkiller

In Jor's defense..

uh..

I got nothing.

But, like Ivanka says, her dad helps people see the best in themselves. Find talent they didn't know they had.

Clarice...if you can 🙏Priebus out was overdue, right?

OT....if ( I hate gossip, but )..
K Guilfoyle & Mooch were dining w 45..maybe there is a ♥️Connection..and that was why he demanded source of Lizard's, because of the personal insinuation....then his " mouth" was easily understandable. People talk without filters in the real world, when millions of $$$$ is at stake.

FDIC Ordered to Turn Over Documents in Operation Choke Point Lawsuit

GUS

Let me repeat something I've said before.
We went from 2.5 trillion dollar budget to 4.0 trillion dollar budget. That is a 60% increase. Where did the money go?? A SHIT LOAD OF HEALTHCARE for all the POOR POOR POOR PEOPLE on our inner cities could have been purchased for F#$KING-EVER with that CA$H.

Not a fucking peep from a SINGLE REPUKELICAN.

How many of you got a sixty percent raise???

$10 TRILLLLLLION in new debt under Obama, the fucking money has been spent. Why aren't all the DYING POOR PEOPLE enjoying HEALTH CARE with that money.

Threadkiller

Thanks to Noel Canning, a recess has a clear enough definition.

Absent McConnell deciding to not gavel out, I think August is in play.

Old Lurker

Me too, TK.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

"I thought a cloud was where you stored data until Google wants to read it."

That is true according to the first 456,834 google entries.

Barbara

The timing of Priebus being out can't be a coincidence. I'm hoping this is a declaration of war on the GOPe.

Captain,

I hope so, too. It always seemed to me that Priebus' main responsibility was to get the House and Senate GOPe in line to enact the President's agenda.

After the health care debacle, Priebus has outlived his usefulness.

I like General Kelly and believe he will be an excellent Chief Of Staff.

Extraneus

Welcome to the hard way, bitches.

Brings to mind Sessions' grin during the interview with Tucker Carlson.

Captain Hate

lyle, I'd noticed that before but was too irritated by the insanity to point it out.

Barbara, as I've said many times before, those clowns never do things the easy way.

Jack is Back!

Trump is the first POTUS since either Jackson or Lincoln who can't depend on his own party for any damn thing even where the toothpicks can be found.

Interesting that he is a military school grad but not a vet but still understands if you want discipline, loyalty and production you bring in a general to reset the table.

This was a long time coming. Do you all really believe the Trump meetings to interview Mitt were Trump's idea and not Priebus's?

Threadkiller
The Court held that the three-day break that occurs during pro forma sessions does not represent a significant interruption of legislative business and therefore cannot justify the exercise of the Clause. Additionally, a pro forma session cannot be viewed as a single, long recess because the Senate retains its capacity to conduct business during such sessions. Because recess appointments made during a recess that was shorter than ten days have been so historically rare, the Court held that ten days was the appropriate presumptive lower limit to place on the exercise of the Clause.

https://www.oyez.org/cases/2013/12-1281

Threadkiller

I meant to also bold the "pro forma" portion.

Trump needed the O-care vote to happen right away and, honestly, he needed it to fail.

With the possibility of debate tossed out the window, McConnell has no reason to keep the Senate open for faux-business.

Maybe McCain was getting his soul back with the no vote??

::ducks::

henry

Reince was on AF1 when fired. Gen Kelley cleaned his office before he could get to it. (Like Comey).

There is an art to firing. Trump is very good at it.

Sure solves that 'recusal' problem.

All the stuff Sessions has been doing ms-13, immigration, pedophile round ups are more in the DHS wheelhouse.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

Reince submitted his resignation yesterday. (And it is interesting that it's the only thing that hasn't been leaked from this WH)

And don't forget Michael Steel left the RNC in debt and in ruins, and Reince brought it back.

He is gone. No reason to hate him.

Barbara

TK,

So the Court just pulled 10 days out of their ___hat?

Stephanie Puppy Pincushion extraordinaire

And don't forget Michael Steel left the RNC in debt and in ruins, and Reince brought it back.

He is gone. No reason to hate him.

Sure there is - if it was just a money laundering op for the uniparty. :)

There is a reason very few people here give to the RNC but only to candidates directly.

Obama is gone. No reason to hate him.

Pretty much, Barbara.

...during the weekly True the Vote webcast, Catherine Engelbrecht (see her photo below) related a meeting she had with Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), asking what the GOP would do about voter integrity. The answer?

Nothing. They aren’t legally able to.

https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2012/11/15/why-the-gop-will-not-do-anything-about-vote-fraud/

I hate Preibus. But you know who loves him?

Lois Lerner.

Engelbrecth found out the hard way.

henry

Barbara, that is on set of facts. The resigned yesterday is another. I don't know which is true. Leak volume going forward will be an indicator of whether this was a good move. Reince will be fine, some lobbyist or another will pay for his contacts.

Texas Liberty Gal

Are we to assume then that Priebus has been one of the main leakers??

Captain Hate

Odorman is really looking bad.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I had hoped that Reince had seen the light, but alas, he did not.

I don't dislike him, but he had far too much loyalty to Ryan and it seems to me from what I have read that he was the source of the leaks.

A lot of people in the GOP establishment just cannot understand the Trump vision or his way of doing things. It's an "old habits die hard" type of thing.

By the way, anyone who thought politics was boring should probably have had a wake-up call. This is more interesting than the first 6 months of the Bush administration, for sure!

Texas Liberty Gal

Jane - per Barbara's comment - Reince was on AF1 when fired. Gen Kelley cleaned his office before he could get to it. (Like Comey).

If Priebus submitted his resignation I'm pretty sure it was after he got fired !

Talk Radio Round-Up:

Prager opens his show today, saying he spent yesterday in Washington at dinner with a dozen Congressman. He says that after pondering McCain's vote and pondering McCain's stated reasons for his vote, he can only conclude that McCain's vote was entirely due to McCain wishing to stick it to Donald Trump.

He says McCain's stated reasons were so obviously foolish that they cannot be true. He recites McCain's stated reasons and says he (Prager) is actually mentally dumbstruck at the illogic of McCain's stated reasons. Since the stated reasons make no sense whatever Prager states he can only conclude that it was a personal effort by McCain to stick it to Donald Trump. Prager invites his callers to please call in on this topic, that he is open to having his mind changed and would welcome calls that can change his mind, but that is his conclusion on McCain's vote---personal animus.

Over at Hannity's Radio Show, he mentioned that what he learned from his dinner with Trump, Scaramucci and others, is that we are going to be hearing tons more in coming days about all the collusion in the deep state, that tons more is going to be coming out, and that he welcomes it coming out and you guys will too.

Beasts of England

That's funny, rse - maybe next time!!

henry

The source for the "fired on AF1" is Gateway Pundit.

The sources for "resigned yesterday" are numerous.

24 hour rule, with an edge to resigned yesterday (on request by Trump) flew today to effect briefing of replacement.

sbw

Jane, I think well of people for the good they do. I can think poorly of them when they screw up.

i.e. McCain, Priebus.

daddy

From Extraneus's 04:47 Gateway Pundit link:

This week Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle revealed that Reince Priebus was a problem. Guilfoyle told President Trump during dinner with him on Thursday that Priebus was the leaker.

As always, consider the source.

Frau  Fidibus

CH sez "Odorman is really looking bad.

Indeed. He should be run through a car wash and given one of those good-smelly things to wear around his neck.

Loathsome lout...

Buckeye

daddy, I share Prager's opinion that McCain wanted to stick it to Trump, period.

Good news is that the radiation and particularly the chemo is going to kick the crap outta Maverick, and likelyhood is this will be the last time he gets to cast the "prick" vote.

daddy

The timing of Priebus being out can't be a coincidence. I'm hoping this is a declaration of war on the GOPe.

One of the FOX reporters said this was tied in with the collapse of the ObamaCare vote. He mentioned, after his parsing of comments from Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that about 2 weeks back there was an understanding of some sort established between Trump and Priebus, and that there would be consequences for Priebus upon how the vote turned out. I think the reporter was that smiley faced Blake Burman guy I hate who said it, so consider the source.
