What a UN speech! Trump schooled that body beautifully, this is truly a president the way a president is supposed to be.

Captain Hate

The steps to which the Zippy apologists are willing to go to argue against the obvious is amusingly pathetic. It's not like anybody intelligent believed or trusted them anyway

 narciso.

I cry horsefeathers like colonel potter used to say,

http://thedailybeast.com/fox-news-blacklisted-scottie-nell-hughes-after-rape-claim-suit-alleges

She was often on fox business as swell as fox prime.

But this whole grishenko business is a stalking horse against all of his initiatives.

Jack is Back!

I hope I live long enough to watch Ben Rhodes frogmarched at least 100 yards to a black SUV never to been seen again but at high noon, like the local fire department siren, he issues a torturous scream for all to hear.

 narciso.

The waahubgton cattle was fine with rocket man as well as thexsepah for the better part of 20 years as with the middle east and the subcontinent have they pretended they've had a clue.

Would a FISA warrant allow branching out to discover a network? ie catch the line back to "Moscow" used by Manafort, then tap all direct contacts to Manafort. Instant Trump / campaign surveillance during and after the election to set up a Hilligula win (failed) the to set up the "resistance" (also a face plant).

When daddy wakes up he might want to check this out:

"An emerging body of research is suggesting that soaring 35,000ft (10km) above the ground inside a sealed metal tube can do strange things to our minds..."

I don't think they have ever heard a speech like that at the UN. Ever.

How wonderful!

jimmyk

The administration was already busy squashing the 'investigation' into Hillary's emails and didn't need the extra work.

Language nitpick: Lately I keep seeing and hearing "squash" when people used to say "quash." I guess "squash" works, but I like "quash" better:

Definition of quash
transitive verb
:to nullify especially by judicial action

quash an indictment

A substantial amount of blue-penciling required for that AP article before we put it on the page.

They misuse “America First” on purpose because it gets in the way of kumbaiya globalism -- um, I mean, control by our betters.

jimmyk, you aren't expecting the MFM to use words correctly, are you?

A Moron pointed out that Teh View, a program which the network claims is targeted for the really really smarty pants wymmynzz, airs in the middle of the work day. What signal does that send?

She posted the tweet before the Slate article was published, indicating she was the source for the Slate article and therefore got the info from the wiretap.

Momto2

Loved the U.N. speech! How refreshing to have a President that doesn't pull any punches and tells it like it is. When was the last time we had that? (Ever?)

Why is N.Korea on the front row? Is that their permanent position? If so - why? What have they done to deserve it?

Good report from Dr. yesterday...5 more weeks of wearing Aspen collar and doing what I'm doing (not much!) Still waiting on vascular specialist appointment but he doesn't expect anything but good news from that as well. Thanks to all for your prayers and good wishes.

jimmyk

Even Willard seemed to like the speech:

@MittRomney 8m

President Trump gave a strong and needed challenge to UN members to live up
to its charter and to confront global challenges.

Bibi on Trump speech, says that in more than 30 years at UN, he has not heard a speech as brave/sharp

Bibi himself has made a few sharp speeches, but better when it comes from the US Prez.

Captain Hate

Oh, no! Poor Frederick - my son was prone to strep throats growing up and they made him feel *so* bad. Hope he gets better soon!

I wish a-mom would weigh in on this. My youngest daughter used to get step all the time because of a carrier in her school who was eventually ID'd. At times everyone in the household would have it except me; the difference being I was the only one with my tonsils removed. I used to get horrendous tonsillitis, one after another until they were removed when I was 7. The quacks who removed them did a particularly poor job of not explaining what to expect when they clapped the ether mask on so that I went into shock before lights out but everything else was fine.

Mrs H used to bug me by implying that having them yanked was barely more medically advanced than being bled by leeches. I responded by telling her to think about that when suffering strep in the future and having breath that smelled like a backed up sewer. So who was right, a-mom?

Yeah they Kenyans are yucking it up as the GRAVY TRAIN turns away from their glorious land.
The UN is quite simply a FULL COMMIE MONEY LAUNDERING OPERATION.

Your money.

jimmyk

CH, I'll wait for what anonamom says, but I thought the medical view was that tonsils actually help with immunity. I also had tonsillitis a few times, usually with drs insisting that the throat culture came back negative, despite the fact that my tonsils were swollen to the size of golfballs and looked like moldy strawberries (and I was in agony for weeks). Eventually I'd persuade them to give me strong antibiotics and it would go away in 2 days. Still have my tonsils, though, and it's been about 25 years since my last episode.

Clarice Feldman

CH, I had my tonsils removed and I, too, remember the horrible fear when they clamped the ether mask on. I, too, had frequent tonsillitis. Unfortunately, my tonsils grew back.Now, as soon as I get a sore throat I gargle with salt water or vodka .

Sue

I just drink vodka when I get a sore throat. I didn't know I was supposed to gargle it.

Captain Hate

They're probably like your appendix, jimmyk, in that when they function normally to leave them alone but if they get chronically really bad they can be a problem.

Buford Gooch

MM, in response to your 11:38, why doesn't it make at least as much sense that Slate ran the article past Hillary's people before publishing it?

squaredance

Wow, what a speech. How satisfying; how brave; how true.

That is the America I used to know.

Captain Hate

Clarice, I'm sure you remember the ether incident like it was yesterday; other than that I can't remember anything except having a really sore throat afterward and not getting nearly as much ice cream as I'd been led to believe

Clarice Feldman

Actually, as John Nolte pointed out yesterday, ALL the major media knew about it even as they were denying Trump's claim . The unmaskers were leaking to them.

Frau  Edith Steingehirn

CH - View viewers: their pants may be smart but the ninnies themselves are not.

The problem is i don't think they got anrhi g fro. Thurse Tao's, hence they have to yell squirrel.

Clarice Feldman

narciso, I seriously haven't a guess what you posted.

Captain Hate

Clarice, where was that Nolte article. I knew all along that the MFM knew the surveillance claim was legit and was pretending otherwise. They aren't very good liars.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

I think Trump needs to give a speech from the Oval, about the wire-tapping, and collusion between Obama, the FBI and the DOJ. He needs to point out our democracy is at risk, and name names, and vow to flush out and prosecute the offenders. And then pardon Manafort and the other guy.

 narciso.

Any one get that?

Yes wittes is a fence laundering purloined property from comey and probably hannugan across the pond.

Ben Rhodes is a sniveling weasel. He needs the Seth Rich treatment.

He also needs to name the CIA with all the headlines saying "no wiretapping" when they knew all along about the wiretapping.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

NOt the CIA - but CNN

DebinGA

Good news, Momto2. You've been a real trooper throughout this ordeal. When you've absorbed the many lessons-learned insights from this saga, I hope you'll share a few.

Captain Hate

Gus, if you want Rhodes to get the Seth Rich treatment, start floating rumors that he's been meeting with Devin Nunes if you find out they're in the same area.

Boom. Outta there with no questions asked.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Gus,

A gal on Twitter called Rhodes a discredited lunatic who should be working at Arby's.

That was rather kind, I thought.

MomTo2:
Great update on your health.
I am not surprised that Mitt Romney recognized and excellent speech by President Trump.
He may have to work with him in the future if he runs for Hatch's seat.
It seems acceptable to run for the presidency,lose, and then go to the Senate.
Even former president John Quincy Adams went back to the House.

OT from a couple of threads back - for Tonto:

Barbara Pym's "Excellent Women" can be recommended without reservation. I envy anyone (although it's probably more a woman's book) who has the joy of reading it for the first time.

One of my all-time favorites. I love all of Pym, but especially this one.

Someday I would like to write an unironic, modern Pym novel, maybe set in an academic library.

Way too kind, GUS, my man. Send him out my way. We'll drop him into the wilderness 100 mi. N of Sun Valley.

Naked.

Give him some time to think about ideas for his next novel...

GUS

Jane, Mr Trump should also mention the treatment of Rodhams staff, and their immunities. He should use the term that Rodham used.....RUSSIAN WIKILEAKS and MOCK THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS out of it.
I believe that Mr Trump has NOTHING to hide is this farce.

daddy

Rush says he is going to play clips today of David Gergen on CNN choking on the news that Trump was wiretapped.

I'd prefer to just punch him in the face but I guess this is second best.

I had a cousin about your age who did not survive having tonsils out.
Back then it was a dangerous operation.

Yep.

Hilarious to listen to Maura Liason on NPR immediately afterwards try to explain how it represented a "softer message" than he campaigned on.

Only to you idiots who don't understand plain English.

Of course, lead on the news at noon and one is about him "threatening to annihilate NK."

Morning Maryrose,

OK,

You punch Gergen in the face, I'll kick him the 'huevos', unless you want to kick him in the 'huevos' in which case I'll punch him in the face:)

I doubt I'll ever catch up today. Just finding time to listen to Trump's speech in its entirety is going to be impossible.
