James D.,

I think a lot of these tech companies and environmental companies are con jobs. Solyndra comes to mind as well.

In addition, exactly how does Twitter make any money? It can't be ads, because any company can simply post a Tweet. Is it selling fake followers? In that case, it seems to me they participate in fraud.

James D.

For Twitter, I'm assuming that a lot of there revenue comes from selling user data to other companies.

Maybe if you are a peaceful protester,you shouldn't mingle with the black masked thugs.

This reminds me of how the virtue signalers like Ryan, who just had to shift goalposts to bash the President, declared that it was impossible for there to have been any "good people" among the protestors at Charlottesville, because they all should have hustled out of there as soon as they saw any Nazi/KKK sign. That sort of guilt by not even association but by proximity is ridiculous by itself, but couple that with the fact that I'm not even sure how ubiquitous those signs were, and some people (as in this video) say they were there in support of free speech.

And wouldn't that reasoning apply to the left too? So the woman who was killed was a bad person?

My Standford educated Belgian BIL owns a Tesla and yes he is the kind of guy who can grate on you because he has small but smart man syndrome.

Then we have our Nigerian doctor classmate of Mrs. JIB who lives in Manhattan with wife and two little kids who is a class act in so many ways. Furthest thing from a smart ass, know it all, buttache.

I would say my BIL fits the Tesla drivers you are talking about. He is the guy who bragged to me about Musk paying back his $850 million federal loan but forgot that is peanuts to the federal subsidy in tax credits that allow him to max out his USA sales. When I told him that in countries that have dropped tax subsidizations their sales went to nil.

He still refuses to talk to me about cars.

Okay, I am going to take a stab at Narciso's 9:26:

Igor Sechin, whom the Business Insider says offered Carter Page a bunch of money or oil options if sanctions on Russia were lifted, ironically ended up the beneficiary of money big and philanthropist Leon Blavatnik's (good friend of NY AG Eric Schneiderman) share of tnk? Autocorrect converts "tnk" to "ink" or "tank", but I'm gong with "tnk."

That is the gist of my posts, but at the time I didn't know how tied blavatnik was both to volodya and the uniparty. Furthermore we are told that previzon commissioned the dossier, but we can't tell without records of payments from said parties.

Tonto

I think I got it! But still unclear on "tnk!" Which autocorrect just reverted to "tsk."

matt, deplore me if you must

I guess that Don Lemon really lost it last night. Out of his own moith he said he has lost objectivity, the first requirement of a reporter.

He and his colleagues have been doing their best to undermine Trump since the election and blew their credibility when their polls were shown to have been utterly flawed, and they expect the president to wear kid gloves.

A German friend called last night to ask why the media were going crazy over statues and if the country had gone insane.

In the meantime, Hillary calls Trump a creep. I wonder what Vince Foster's family has to say about that. Or the White House Travel Office people she fired. Or the families of the Benghazi victims.

Maybe we should all take up a collection for Colin Kaemperninck.Is he the ultimate affirmative action symbol? The "everyone gets a trophy" QB? Or is the oh so PC NFL racist?

These people make no sense any more. They have lost all reason. Lemon calls Trump a child and yet the childishness seems to be almost exclusively the province of the Left.

Has anyone seen the Russia scandal lately? Is the MSM reporting on the Awan brothers? Is there an honest man left in Washington?

rich,

I maintain the odious Rick Wilson knows something about that dossier. I followed him on Twitter through most of the campaign and he became increasingly agitated about Trump after the convention he started dropping hints about how stuff was going to come out and that he knew stuff. Well, one of the things that I am pretty sure he knew about was the Billy bush tape, because Wilson had been a Bush guy (he's in Florida). He also bills himself as a media expert.

The more I think about it though, I think that dossier was also on his radar. I wouldn't be surprised if he was an intermediary in getting it paid for after the dems decided against it.

Georgie porgie is very short. I am going to say 5'4" - 5' 6". I have seen him several times on Sundays when we go to Pierre's in Bridgehampton. He has his summer place in Bridgehampton, off of Paul's Lane, IIRC. It is very tempting for me to flick his ear as I walk by his table.
===================================================
I have to agree with Jen Rubin and all the other haters: Trump is unfit for DC.

1. He is not corrupt
2. He really loves his country and wants the best for it.
3. He isn't buying into this globalist, unified aspirations, leading from behind monkey poo.
4. He is not afraid to call a Senator a snake or idiot or wrong on the issues.
5. He wants to cut better deals and not appease the special interests.
6. He wants to Make America Great Again.
7. He knows what sacrifice means. Look at what his leaving behind to rebuild all that has been torn down since Reagan left office.

When you compare him to the people in all 3 branches of our government and what they have accomplished and destroyed, he is not fit for office based on their criteria.

Great Upheaval sure made it sound like the great empire of France, by the time of Louis XVI, had at Versailles the same cast of uppity characters we have now in DC and the extended MSM. It had taken France about 200 years to descend to that so we would seem to be right on track.
