It is finally sinking through. 46% OF PEOPLE BELIEVE MAJOR NATIONAL NEWS ORGS FABRICATE STORIES ABOUT ME. FAKE NEWS, even worse! Lost cred.

President Trump iwll be interviewed by Maria Bartolomo on Fox Business at 10:00 AM Eastern.

Going back and looking, the interview will be on Fox News.

Possibly the storms moving in from the west? Oh, right. Weather is a local phenomena.

Wonderful Pieces this morning.

9.5 million year old teeth found in Germany. They are similar to the "Lucy" teeth from Africa, but Lucy was only 5 million years ago.

Clarice Feldman

Thanks.

Clarice Feldman

JiB, if Mrs/ JiB wants a thermomix--previously not available in the US,but popular all over the world, esp europe, let me know. It's here now and I'm selling them.

Man Tran

From Clarice's Pieces: Presently he is the deputy attorney general and is himself under investigation by the Justice department inspector general

Where did I miss that McCabe, instead of being taken out and shot, was bumped over from FBI to DoJ?

Catsmeat

"The dawn comes up like thunder" is from Kipling's poem "Mandalay," just so you know!

jimmyk

9.5 million year old teeth found in Germany.

Someone needs to let Louise Slaughter know, stat!

But seriously, there was another story about hominids in Europe much earlier than had been thought. Are there cracks in the story we've always been told that humans originated in Africa, or is the "science settled"?

jimmyk

And reposting my question to our fine legal minds, from the last, now dead, thread, regarding something in today's great "Pieces":

As to this: Loretta Lynch, Obama’s Attorney General, reportedly threatened the informant that he’d be subject to criminal prosecution if he revealed to Congress what he’d find out.

Aren't there "whistle blower" laws specifically designed to protect people like this?

Catsmeat

Have a 20-person film crew descending on my garage all day today (daughter is directing a student film), so pity me!They are very nice kids, but one's world is not one's own for a space. There's a veritable armoury of fake weapons about, not to mention the thick snakes of cables and monster lights and dollies and what have you. The one real knife my daughter dulled by ten minutes' scraping on the concrete. A fun day to come!

Bela1

Good morning everyone.

Clarice...you definitely nailed it again!

Like Gus stated, this is treason. I hope & pray Sessions is gathering his ducks in a row to slam the hell out of these damn traitors. President Trump is definitely going to have to come before the people in order for this horror to be exposed as it should.

It's maddening what's been happening.
I fear for our country and its citizenry.

My daughter's baby shower is today so off to decorate the hall...but, all of you have a good week.

Take care!

I am curious why Trump has tweeted several times that the DoJ and FBI ought to do something or other.

That confuses dummies like me who thought those agencies reported to the President, so I wonder why he speaks as if they do not?

Clarice Feldman

Oops, Man Tran--let me see if that can be edited--McCabe is now again Acting Director of the FBI

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Great pieces, clarice.
I'm too cognizant of the utter incompetence of humanity in general to be much of a conspiracy guy but there is a vast subterranean vault of interconnected graft and corruption connecting the Clinton machine, the Russia mess, the Soros machine and the Awan iceberg.
No doubt a lot of it is merely vultures of a feather flocking together over the same rotting carcass, but much of it is a school of like minded sharks intentionally acting in concert.
And that is what explains the frenetic desire to destroy Trump more than ideology. The vultures and the sharks send their ideological shock troops out to cause trouble but the half witted puppets' fanaticism is a far cry from the puppeteers' motivations of graft, greed, naked thirst for power and above all, the desire to keep their filthy linen from being washed in public.
Not sure they have anything to worry about with Mr Clean Sessions on the case unfortunately.

Thomas Collins

I don't know that details of the relevant whistleblower statutes, jimmyk. However, even the threat of an indictment, with the lawyer expense involve in getting cleared, would be a deterrent.

Has anyone here studied the separation of powers issue in this context? Where does Loretta Lynch get off obstructing an inquiry by Congress? I would suggest that the nondisclosure agreement shouldn't prevent testimony to Congress.

Old Lurker

Great questions, TC. Once Trump gets his AG approved by the Senate and sworn in, I expect we will get right to the bottom of those pesky questions.

Thomas Collins

I'm looking forward to a great Series between the Houston Colt .45s and the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Clarice Feldman

It's been edited Man Tran--Thank you so much for catching that.

Man Tran

Clarice,

Glad I could help. Truly didn't know for sure.

Clarice Feldman

Iggy, it's clear that a lot of hearts stopped late election night.

DebinGA

I think McCabe was Acting Director of the FBI from Comey's firing until Wray arrived. The FBI website shows him as back in his pre-Comey Deputy Director spot. I hope it's a "and your enemies closer" gambit.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clarice,

I still believe the election was a miracle. I sort of understand how the Israelites felt when they saw the Red Sea parted.

All we needed was that clip of Charlton Heston as Moses saying "Behold, the power of God."

sbw

Very clear and precise, Clarice. I have waved the article under the nose of AP with link and excerpts warning that their seemingly purposefully evasive reporting will no longer fly.

Clarice Feldman

Me, too, MM

Tonight we will get a TMZ interview with Mark Cuban about whether he will run for president or not.

I do not like that guy and I don't think he can win, but it is good to pay attention.

henry

Ig, I'm sure Flathead still prefers the Chinese model, with Hilligula in the Xi spot. So do Kristol and the #NeverTrumps.

Sue

Good Lord. The Mavs have lost all three of their opening games. Cuban should pay more attention to his basketball team and less on politics.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

President Trump interview on Fox now.

-peter, heh

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Cuban seems like one of those guys who couldn't get himself elected even if the electorate was confined simply to his immediate family...as long as it was secret ballots.

So the New Yorker thinks, Kelly is speaking the language of a coup (base on an ex-Soviet denizen's interpretation) when in fact there is a coup underway right now but by the collective known as the Deep State Swamp of #NeverTrump and Resistocrats.

Jack,

Perusing the comments I see that the public thinks the whole thing was a gathering of phonies and hypocrites.

It says something when the LEAST offensive to me was Jimmy Carter.

Powerful! More dangerous to be a French civilian in France than to be a French soldier deployed to a Muslim war zone.
"France is the new Israel."
"And France has no plans for winning the war. Instead it’s trying to get better at playing defense."

JiB, 10:16
As I've seen noted elsewhere the Swamp has had a good run as evidenced by the five living ex-presidents. All of whom were globalists.

Jack is Back!

JNC,

My trigger word is "bipartisanship". Its a word used in the present positive tense that means "support the Swamp and Globalization".

JiB, it is important not to confuse "bipartisan" with "nonpartisan", which means exactly the same thing in terms of supporting the Swamp and Globalization.

Captain Hate

Anybody else find the timing of this extremely suspicious?

Captain Hate,

HIGHLY suspicious.

Feldman charged with marijuana possession, released, and will have to pay a fine. No biggie imo.

Miss Marple,

I must be getting really jaded when I react to that by thinking that Harvey the perv made a convenient target because his company was losing money and influence but trying to impede the homo indoctrination won't be permitted.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

I think they are going to blame all of their movie losses this year on Harvey. In addition, they were trying to make it about only women and mostly him. However, there is another story about a director this morning, so the "only Harvey" thing won't fly. I am beginning to think the gay molestations are what they are trying to hide, both because that won't fly among most Americans but also because it will kill the "gays in Boy Scouts, as teachers, as coaches, etc. are just fine" thinking.

The NFL is going to blame all of their revenue losses on Trump. It can't be that Trump succeeded because no one was listening to the press, anyway. Nope, all his fault.

No one wants to take responsibility for their behavior, so they look for someone to blame. It's a chronic problem in this country, Hillary being the poster girl for it.

I have noticed that there have been a huge number of child sex trafficking cases popping up. Sooner or later that is going to get connected to Hollywood. It's only a matter of time.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Porchlight and I remember Scott Adams saying that we would get to the point about now where people would say "We don't like him but he's effective."

Went to Pancake breakfast with the persons running for Ohio AG and Auditor as well state offices.
Some good people here in Ohio.

I'm glad Iggy still links American Spectator articles, which are being discussed on the moron book thread. During the 90s it used to be a hilarious clearing house for every accusation against Slick, some of them pretty nutty. Naturally that didn't sit well with our respectable Repuke overlords and they joined a Uniparty push to marginalize them.

Still they persisted...

Clarice Feldman

That Greenfield column is an eye opener. He's so good,.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

lyle links even more of them, CH.
He, like me, really appreciates George Neumayr.
I discovered AmSpec in the late seventies when they had a hilarious issue on Andy Young. That's when I first realized politics could be funny and the funniest guys turned out to be on the right.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

And AmSpec started in MM's backyard in Bloomington, IN when Bob Tyrell and a few others had just graduated, IIRC.
I think the magazine lost some of its joy and independence when it moved to DC.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Houston may be west of the Mississippi but it's hard for me to think of it as Western.
Having said that I hope they beat the loathsome Dodgers.

Captain Hate

Re the Greenfield article, France has had a strange relationship with Islam from their Algerian adventures. This didn't begin yesterday.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Iggy,

I would agree. Bob Tyrell was really funny. He used to be on C=SPAN occasionally and I loved his sense of humor.

I was sorry when they moved to DC but they wanted to get interviews with DC people and have a larger footprint.

Not as good now, but WAY above NRO or WS.

By the way, Bill Kristol has gotten a lot of pushback for saying the fundraiser last night showed presidents who comported themselves with dignity and we would have such presidents again.

Lots of people pointing out the Monica humidor thing! And another huge group saying "This is why you got Trump."

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Houston is West if you live in Indiana.

Captain Hate

Kristol needs somebody like Clarice or me to slap some sense into him; not his sycophantic toadies like Hayes. I wonder why Fred Barnes hasn't done so.

Way early but still an ominous sign for an incumbent. Republican Josh Hawley up 3% of Claire McCaskill in Missouri. Never good for an incumbent to poll below 50% let alone to be behind a challenger who just got elected State Auditor. But Missouri has followed a very similar path as Tennessee, as the Democrat Party has simply evaporated to shadow of what it was. Bye Bye Claire, please turn out the lights and close the door when you leave...

Daughter and I took our dogs (all 3 of them) over to the college and walked them around. Students were happy to see them.

My mother was Dean of Women there back in the 70's. I haven't been on the interior of the campus since them. They now have fountains, sculpture, and fantastic planters filled with exotic mixed flowers and plants plus all sorts of interesting landscape.

We are going to start taking the dogs over there every Sunday. No classes then, staff is off, plenty of parking, and few students out and about.


GUS

Common man, we had the same thought

Momto2

It seems when even Jimmy Carter acknowledges the outrageous bias of the media against our President - someone needs to pay attention!

"I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I've known about," Carter replied. "I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation."
