My money's on the papal plot, MM. I certainly trust the guy less than I trust Meuller.

Dersh still speaking truth to power:

How dare liberals, people on the left, try to undo democracy by accusing a president of being mentally ill without any basis. The 25th amendment doesn’t apply. Everybody knew who Donald Trump was when they elected him… he hasn’t changed in office and this idea of diagnosing him instead of opposing him politically poses an enormous danger to our democracy.

there might be tapes of the Bannon interviews. So he can't go so far as to say ... "I didn't say that" and is stuck with either "I was drunk when I said that" or "I didn't mean what I actually said"

... oops for him.

I snagged a good sale once when I needed a TV "yesterday".

Jane,
We just replaced a Sony 40 with an LG 43 (same outside dimensions). Should be able to find it on sale. I think we got it on Amazon so no shipping or tax. Cheaper than a repair on the not so reliable Sony.

Just just do what Jack said at 2:04 and waste no more time thinking about it.

Threadkiller

I should say that I'm hardly convinced it is real.

The tweet about Trump being "the great white hope" should be enough of a clue.

Someone archived a bunch of anti jew tweets that were posted and deleted throughout last year.

Bannon did that and got away with it? Hardly.

Threadkiller,

There are several Bannon (Bannen) accounts. Obviously the misspelled one is a fake.

The tweet I posted matches the statement Bannon released. I will go get the statement and you can read it for yourself.

Agree with Janet and Exdem who have posted some wonderful statements today.
Agree we can’t lose sight of original purpose of spying on Trump as a candidate and his family with impunity.
Hil will skate but I want millions spent in lawyer fees.
Mueller is flawed no matter how this plays out because he has surrounded himself with deplorable people with Comey and McCabe at the top of the list.
Bannon didn’t kill the king so will be forever marginalized and ineffective

Threadkiller

Here is what Axios said they received in a statement from Bannon:

•Donald Trump, Jr. is both a patriot and a good man. He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around."
•"My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda — as I have shown daily in my national radio broadcasts, on the pages of Breitbart News and in speeches and appearances from Tokyo and Hong Kong to Arizona and Alabama."
•"President Trump was the only candidate that could have taken on and defeated the Clinton apparatus. I am the only person to date to conduct a global effort to preach the message of Trump and Trumpism; and remain ready to stand in the breech for this president's efforts to make America great again."
•"My comments about the meeting with Russian nationals came from my life experiences as a Naval officer stationed aboard a destroyer whose main mission was to hunt Soviet submarines to my time at the Pentagon during the Reagan years when our focus was the defeat of 'the evil empire' and to making films about Reagan's war against the Soviets and Hillary Clinton's involvement in selling uranium to them."
•"My comments were aimed at Paul Manafort, a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate. He should have known they are duplicitous, cunning and not our friends. To reiterate, those comments were not aimed at Don Jr."
•"Everything I have to say about the ridiculous nature of the Russian 'collusion' investigation I said on my 60 Minutes interview. There was no collusion and the investigation is a witch hunt."
•"I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention from the president's historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency."

Slutty Silverman at the Dem convention chastised Bernie voters and lost millions of votes for Hillary in the process.

jimmyk

I just watched the Stephen Miller interview with Tapper. I have to reluctantly disagree with Miss M. I thought Miller came off terribly. Instead of answering Tapper's questions, which should have been easy to knock out of the park, he just launched into prepared talking points, and was obnoxious about it too.

I'm not saying Tapper isn't a first-class a**hole, but Miller did little to undermine Tapper. Obnoxiousness is fine if you are dismantling the other person's arguments, but otherwise it looks like you are just stonewalling.

maryrose

Added outrage wrt Silverman She used to date Kimmel.
I will watch Golden Globes for the dresses and mute the prog speeches.

Threadkiller

Here is the tweet before the one that copied the end of the Axios statement:

Steven Bannon @SteveKBannon · Jan 4 And in spite of allegations and words, Trump is a great man. He is the great white hope for the USA and regardless of what seems to be going on right now. So to make things clear my support for him is unchanged! #MAGA

"...the great white hope..."

And this is believed to be a legitimate Steve Bannon account?

This is why Todd Akins and Roy Moores get kicked to the curb in favor of baby scalpers.

Threadkiller,

As I explained, I posted that Tweet because of the cimilarity to the released statement.

I didin't go back and read the old tweets for that account, or I wouldn't have posted it, even though it matches the released statement.

You seem to think that Bannon should be forgiven and allowed back into the fold.

1. Does that apply if he was the leaker?

2. Does that apply to Senator Flake?

3. At what point does one place himself beyond the pale?

In other news:

One dead after explosion outside Stockholm subway station

Stockholm's police force have said the man was unlikely to have been purposely targeted by whoever left the explosive at the station. They added that there was nothing to suggest terrorism.

Because hand grenades are the sort of thing one might normally find at a subway station, apparently.

I suppose none of the individuals in the twin towers were "purposely targeted" either.

Hahahaha!

Captain Hate

Sad

Why are you carrying such a torch for him? If his actions require massive explanations after the initial shock wears off, they probably weren't very well thought out. Todd Akin appeared on a show that ambushed him because he was campaigning for office and being on those shows is what he's supposed to do. I wasn't one of the people who got the vapors for what Akin said. In fact I'm one of the people who criticized Romney for not telling reporters to stop bugging him to react to it.

Threadkiller

I'm not carrying a torch for Bannon. Not one bit.

I have a beef with not getting facts/info straight before passing it along.

Sure the fake tweeter got a tiny fraction correct in his misquote of Bannon's statement, but that isn't a justification for sending people to a site that paints Bannon as a racist.

That kind of carelessness creates Akin and Moore type of election results.

Sebastian Gorka said that he wishes that Bannon would tell his side of the story.

Is that enough to hate on Gorka?

 narcisoyea

Yes, in furthering the Jones memo, one expected that kate Walsh would be throwing shade, she wee one of the suspected leakers.

Captain Hate

No, Gorka is trying to eliminate a distraction which is what this has become. If, as Bannon's defenders seem to be claiming, this was part of some multidimensional chess move, I'm not very impressed.

Threadkiller

Oh. I am out of sync. What was the Jones memo? (I probably should know but I may be over thinking)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

OK,

I will forego posting anything about Bannon. The link from Axios is correct, I assume, since Threadkiller reported the entire statement after I posted the link.

I am not going to comment further about this subject.

While lying in bed last night I was thinking about this old Jerry Van Dyke TV Show, where his dead mother returns as a jalopy, and an image of a dead mother returning as this popped into my head:

That huge bottle is called a Carboy

A carboy (or carbouy), demijohn, or jimmyjohn is a rigid container with a typical capacity of 20 to 60 litres (5 to 16 US gal).[1][2] Carboys are primarily used for transporting liquids, often water or chemicals.[3]

They are also used for in-home fermentation of beverages, often beer or wine.

What with this JOM crowd, I naturally started thinking of a TV Show titled "My Mother The Carboy." Just think of the episodes we could come up with what with all the wry and witty expertise fermentation tasting experts we have haunting this Blog---Captain Hate, Lyle, DaveinMa, Frau and her German Kolsch's, Beast's lakeside Pub, DrJ's Winery, JimmyK, and if I may be so bold, myself:)

Momma Carboy: "A growing boy like you Jerry ought to start the day off with a nice Oatmeal stout, like I've made for you this morning."

Jerry: Bless you Momma, bless you!

How come SNL doesn't think outside of the box anymore?

This is a good inverview, and Dickerson actually covers some important issues other than the stupid book. Pompeo is pretty good.

Also, Thoas Wictor thinks Pompeo is telegraphing how Iran will play oout.

Threadkiller

I have always been against the multi dimensional chess theory, CH.

Gorka told Elder that he hoped for more of a two sided discussion and said that he talked to Bannon after the eruption.

That is what I hoped for as well.

Bannon's response has sucked.

Captain Hate

This is what going full retard looks like:

The guy who is hosting the Golden Globes, who apparently has some very late night talk show but I've never heard of, says he's going all political in the hosting duties.

I hope he does. I hope they go nuts lecturing everyone how to live and behave and how terrible we all are. I hope they double down on the preaching and self-righteousness.

Because people will hate it, and them, even more for it.

Anyone sane in Hollywood would spend 2018 keeping their trap absolutely shut after the revelations of last year.

President Trump may cause the extinction of the entire human race, Yale professor says

“As more time passes, we come closer to the greatest risk of danger, one that could even mean the extinction of the human species,” Lee said. “This is not hyperbole. This is the reality.”

How bad does she say it is? According to Lee, it’s a “public health emergency that needs to be responded to as quickly as possible.”

Lee also said there is a good chance Trump will violently lash out in the future.

His “verbal aggressiveness, history of boasting about sexual assault, history of inciting violence at his rallies, and history of endorsing violence in his key public speeches” is a predictor for impending violence, she said. “He has also shown an attraction to violence and powerful weapons.”

What did he say in a debate, "I hope the Russians will give us the 33,000 emails"? Who was seriously dumb enough to equate that with teaming up with the Russians in order to hack the DNC? Many moonbats, obviously.

matt- deplore me if you must

Just tried to register on the mental health experts site, since I work with NIMH, SAMHSA etc and have become pretty well regarded on the West Coast in systems of care and innovation. I doubt they will let me in simply because of my address.

You have to be an Ivy league numb brain to join these organizations of concerned idiots. Whether it's protesting the Bomb or the Rosenbergs or the upcoming indictments of Bill & Hillary, there are certain criteria for membership, such as a complete lack of insight (anosognosia in psychiatrist talk) or objectivity. They get stewed on sherry and experimental drugs from research labs and their brains just go kablooey (yes, that is a technical term).

Is anyone on the Golden Anal Probes wearing a pussy hat? Were there any #meetoo tats(you know they can't spell, much less read cursive)? One year later they are still meltin down over the same lame BS that was being spouted by the same group of clueless power whores a year ago.

I think we need to organize a very special day for January 20. Either MAGA day or F You Day works for me. Hahahahaha Day also works.

We need to drink from their skulls and hear the lamentations of their wimmen preferably while bitterly clinging to our guns and Bibles, and beers or cocktails of our choice.
