But why does Trump go there when the facts are public and he himself hasn't contacted the Niger KIA's families in 12 days? I don't understand his remarks and the timing. Strange.

Jack,

This may have some relevance to your question:

Artis had a 'fro that had to add another 4 inches or so. And he was all muscle. Charging into the lane was not something you were going to do more than once...

Porchlight

So the "Hillary got bribed and sold our uranium to Russia" is the "boom"?

That fits with all the hints from Sara Carter, Gorka and others, so I'm guessing yes.

The news part is that the FBI had the info before the uranium deal went through in 2010.

Porchlight

This is the best account I've seen so far and I think one of the hinters said it would be in The Hill:

http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/355749-fbi-uncovered-russian-bribery-plot-before-obama-administration

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

The first decision occurred in October 2010, when the State Department and government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States unanimously approved the partial sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, giving Moscow control of more than 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.

When this sale was used by Trump on the campaign trail last year, Hillary Clinton’s spokesman said she was not involved in the committee review and noted the State Department official who handled it said she “never intervened ... on any [Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] matter.”

Much more at the link.

henry

More of a fizzle. Documents what was known during the campaign. The Clinton cover team (Comey, McCabe, Mueller, Rosenstien) isn't new either.

Plus it says "Russia" in it, so Sessions will ignore it. Only surprise is McCain wasn't listed as a coconspirator.

I think the most interesting things about that story are that they had a mole inside the Russian firm and that the FBI had investigated it and informed SOMEONE before Obama signed the agreement to sell.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Epic [and dignified] crushing of some prog freak.

henry

still in fantasy land. Press thinks Hilligula is "shadow president" thus must be covered. SMH

Porchlight

No, when this came up during the campaign we didn't have this level of proof of what FBI had compiled.

The Obama administration and the Clintons defended their actions at the time, insisting there was no evidence that any Russians or donors engaged in wrongdoing and there was no national security reason for any member of the committee to oppose the Uranium One deal.

But FBI, Energy Department and court documents reviewed by The Hill show the FBI in fact had gathered substantial evidence well before the committee’s decision that Vadim Mikerin — the main Russian overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States — was engaged in wrongdoing starting in 2009.

I think Trump now has substantial grounds to fire McCabe and Rosenstein and tell Mueller to get lost. Of course, he could have done so before, but with Comey he waited until he had some hard info.

The investigation was ultimately supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, an Obama appointee who now serves as President Trump’s deputy attorney general, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, now the deputy FBI director under Trump, Justice Department documents show.

Both men now play a key role in the current investigation into possible, but still unproven collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s campaign during the 2016 election. McCabe is under congressional and Justice Department inspector general investigation in connection with money his wife’s Virginia state Senate campaign accepted in 2015 from now-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe at a time when McAuliffe was reportedly under investigation by the FBI.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Hillary is truly stupid if she is conducting her international whine tour for free when Trump would be happy to pay her millions were she to threaten to stop.

Posted by: henry | October 17, 2017 at 10:48 AM

I think y'all are missing the boat.

Henry, here's an alternative take that says you may want to slow your roll. The news, Porchlight, is that Rod Rosenstein was the lead U.S. Attorney on the case. So he intimately knows for certain the politicization at the Department of Justice and how it was seriously wrong. Remember this: HE SUCCESSFULLY PROSECUTED THE CASE! The DOJ and Obama Administration most certainly did not listen to him and his prosecutors on the wisdom of the sale going forward.

Y'all might want to think about that a bit, along with why Rosenstein was selected, why he wrote that letter where he publicly prosecuted Comey, and why *he* is the supervising attorney for the Mueller investigation.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

The President has been hitting Radio Row this morning, so there are a lot of snippets popping up. Here is one:

Mark Knoller‏Verified account @markknoller 16m16 minutes ago

On @ChrisPlanteShow, asked about @SenJohnMcCain remarks last night, @POTUS warned "at some point, I fight back and it won’t be pretty."

henry

RG. Occam's Razor favors the simple explanation. The Clinton whitewash team is intact and continuing to whitewash. A weak plea bargain isn't a successful prosecution of Russian corruption of the government, complete with bribes to the Sec State. It fits with a team that gives immunity to all in the bathroom server caper. It fits with a team that hides all documents related to the Lynch/Slick Tarmac meeting. It fits with the obstruction on the unmasking inquiries. It fits with the team conspiring to set up Meuller for his coup (which the "shadow president" so desires).

Nothing honest in that group. Not an honest bone among them.

A war hero only because we have been sold that story. I haven't bought it for some time.

Since I lived through the Vietnam era, there are plenty of people who didn't serve. Many got college deferments or had a high draft numbers. Others didn't pass the physicals.

No shame in that as long as they registered for the draft, which Trump did. It's not like he went to Canada.

Maybe you missed McCain's insane rant about nationalism and how we need to keep fighting, fighting all over the world.

No thanks. Let other countries do their own fighting.

McCain was a war hero by any standard. What he is now is a despicable self aggrandizing not very smart egotistical asshole. Met hom and was not impressed. I preferred him to Onama, but it was like preferring cod liver oil to ipecac.

NcCain's actions are all about his hatred of Trump. He could give a shit about the country. That he has terminal cancer and won't cede his seat is just another indicator of his issues.

Popovich is getting older and as a basketball coach is single minded. That is what it takes to be good at that kind of job. Not a great thinker and surrounded by the liberal narrative.

RattlerGator

TM, back to your prior post. I'm curious what the board thinks of this. I have contempt for Ta-Nehisi Coates, true. But I wonder about the center-left people (black, white or otherwise) who see clearly enough this aspect of the craziness:

* * *

For having the temerity to defend himself, Mr. Packer was accused on social media of “excusing racism” and “whitesplaining.” Such logic extends a disturbing trend in left-of-center public thinking: identity epistemology, or knowing-through-being, somewhere along the line became identity ethics, or morality-through-being. Accordingly, whiteness and wrongness have become interchangeable — the high ground is now accessible only by way of “allyship,” which is to say silence and total repentance. The upside to this new white burden, of course, is that whichever way they may choose, those deemed white remain this nation’s primary actors.

* * *

So, knowing-through-being is championed. Okay. Isn't it straightforward logic that morality-through-being will be an inescapable end-result?

Apparently not, for our brave friend Thomas Chatterton Williams then writes a concluding paragraph such as this:

* * *

However far-fetched that may sound, what identitarians like Mr. Spencer have grasped, and what ostensibly anti-racist thinkers like Mr. Coates have lost sight of, is the fact that so long as we fetishize race, we ensure that we will never be rid of the hierarchies it imposes. We will all be doomed to stalk our separate paths.

* * *

He confronts the fact directly in his writing, and includes the fact in his concluding paragraph, but has to modify said obvious fact so as to do . . . what? Not get devoured by the mob?

Ostensibly anti-racist?

That's as far as you can go? Buck up, man. Call a spade a spade (pun intended).

To me, so much of this goes back to what Camille Paglia brought out in her discussion with Jordan Peterson: there is a serious resentment of talent within the Marxist left, a resentment in an aesthetic of quality, so that a reductionism down to a power thing becomes controlling and it becomes all about jealousy and envy.

Does anyone else see the knowing-through-being concept morphing into a morality-through-being thing as merely a form of relativism? It's hiding a jealousy and envy mask, sure, but it is in the service of pure power, right?

McCain was a war hero. That doesn't mean he wasn't an asshole. He was, and is. He should have resigned his seat when diagnosed (actually long before that, except for different reasons). Hiding behind his "war hero" status is cowardly. People who push this crap about threatening to insult him are naive, at best.

what the hell? I seem to recall the media tried to play "the absolute moral authority" card twice on Trump: once with previous comments he made about McCain and then with a Gold Star family.

McCain is the worst of the worse with his bomb the world, resettle the world (but not in his neighborhood) worldview. Maybe instead of going around the world prattling on about his peculiar worldview he could spend some time cleaning house at the VA just like he did with baseball.

McCain's vision of an America always ready to fight a war for Democracy is worth disputing. (Hey, that's a lot of why I cast that Obama vote y'all bless me out for). But the discussion ought to be thoughtful -- not "I fight back and it won't be pretty". Playground macho against an 80 year old with a brain tumor?

I have a new post up which is why it is so fresh in my mind, http://invisibleserfscollar.com/instilling-desired-dreams-to-cultivate-personal-identities-and-purpose-to-achieve-new-future-directions/ but the marxism most alive and well in the 21st century is man as the driver of new directions.

That occurs by changing moral values, which is precisely what the templeton F is doing and jeb bush was their featured guest speaker recently.

the knkowing as being and being as becoming tracks back to the Humanist Psychologists like Maslow and Carl Rogers and Roland? . The launched in 1962, with nea funding, which is precisley the same year that the Marxist Humanist vision launched globally per gorbachev of all people. Documents in my possession back that up. I think jfk assasination created a hiccup but great society, in lbj's mind at least, was intended to get the mh vision back on track.

Remember lbj was very influenced by dewey;s vision which is an update of the man as a maker of history as my book covered to some extent.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Appalled,

1. Twitter isn't for writing extended treatises on policy Anyone who thinks so is doomed to be disappointed in the level of discourse.

The President is communicating with the people. That tweet is to let us know that he knows what McCain has been up to and he will strike back. Exactly right as far as I am concerned, so I need not trouble myself that he hasn't seen clips of the speech.

2. If we were talking about just the President and just McCain, you might have a point. However, McCain is amplified by every mainstream outlet and not only that, I just caught THIS picture on Twitter, which makes McCain's position even more suspect:

Who's McCain standing next to? Why yes, that's Harvey Weinstein, mover and shaker in funding for democrats. Plenty of other pictures, too.. I just chose one that was small enough to fit without right clicking.

Spare me on this. McCain lets personal grudges dictate everything he does, and he cloaks his actions in national security, military, or his war hero status. I well remember how he plotted and connived after George Bush was elected.

President Trump isn't a politician. He's a street-fighting builder from Queens. The sooner you realize this, you will begin to understand him.

Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton.

If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or be impeached.

If number 2: If Trump is removed, Vice President Mike Pence would become president.

If number 3: If Pence becomes president, he should resign too, given that he benefited from the same help from Mother Russia.

If number 4: If Pence resigns before appointing a vice president, Ryan would become president.

If number 5: If Ryan becomes president, he should do the right thing and choose Clinton for vice president. Then he should resign.

Speaking of fantasizing lawyers...

Curtis Fallgatter wrote in a court filing on Monday that Stephen Donaldson Sr. doesn't have an average man's life expectancy because he's 5-foot-9 and weighs 273 pounds (124 kilograms). For that reason, the attorney wrote, it's not right to make him serve 6 years and four months in prison. Fallgatter wrote that the prison term could translate to 61 percent of Donaldson's remaining time on earth.

The Tampa Bay Times reports Donaldson was sentenced last week in Tampa for his part of peddling an offshore tax shelter that cost the IRS an estimated $10 million.

derwill

I have two points--which aren't meant to be either a condemnation of Session's DOJ, nor a defense of it. Rather they're just practical observations on my part.

1) There can often be a big gulf between knowing a crime has been committed, and who done it and how they done it, and being able to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. When you factor in that the perps are high-ranking Dems in the Obama Administration, and the court of law will be in DC with a likely liberal judge and 12 jurors who are die-hard, Obama-worshipping Democrats, who will be predisposed to render an OJ verdict, and it is possible that no amount of proof in the world will get you a guilty verdict. Thus, from a practical point of view, one must consider that bringing the charges is all you're going to get, and then weigh that against how damaging a not-guilty verdict will be to your agenda.

2) The minute the announcement that high-ranking Obama administration officials are being indicted comes across the wire, the reaction is going to be off the charts hysteria. It will paralyze the government. Trump is already having trouble getting anything through congress, but after that it will become impossible. So, again from a practical point of view, one must set priorities within an agenda, and in this case it could boil down to what is more important to Trump, perp-walking the Dems or getting his tax cuts, etc, enacted. Because it simply might not be possible to have both, no matter how much we might wish it weren't so.

matt, deplore me if you must

These bastards just won't let go of it. The LA Times has an op/ed on the road to a Clinton presidency via impeachment and the "intelligentsia" are really demonstrating that they are anything but.

My gut response to this is: let justice be done, though the Heavens fall.

All fine and good in a perfect world, but you're not considering the likelihood that justice won't be done in any event, because you won't be able to get a guilty verdict in a DC court with a DC jury.

IMO, having them exonerated with a not guilty verdict would be the worst possible outcome and that is what you are very, very highly likely to get.
