Let's hope he makes it through the primary. I understand he's the only one the R's have a chance of beating up there.

He also wrote he had viewed a video in which Ellison dragged Monahan off the bed by her feet.

clarice-jeb bush was a visiting prof at the kennedy school last year and stephen goldsmith, former indy mayor and bush 43 and romney advisor has been a prof there for at least a decade. Anyone all in for govt steering of society and people is quite accepted regardless of party background.

It is a bastion of the Third Way and its dean was at Anthony Giddens 2002 Global Third Way conference that was literally cosponsored by THE Fabian Society.

Good Morning!

Thought this from an early morning link by Miss M to Sundance discussing Trump's strategy for exiting NAFTA and doing individual North American agreements was really interesting, so I'm going to paste what stood out to me and apparently also Maria Bartiromo:

Instead of following customary sequential steps: (1) waiting for endless NAFTA negotiations that can never be resolved; (2) and then announcing the NAFTA withdrawal; (3) and then dealing with the political fallout and financial backlash; (4) and then beginning bilateral trade discussions, etc. etc. Team Trump brilliantly and quietly strategized an end-around.

Team U.S.A. reversed the sequencing (but didn’t announce it).

1) Negotiate the Mexico bilateral.

2) Announce the Mexican bilateral agreement.

3) Offer Canada a bilateral (slightly different terms).

4) Announce the Canadian bilateral agreement.

5) Dissolve NAFTA.

Instead of beginning new, bilateral, comprehensive trade constructs after trilateral NAFTA is dissolved, they end the new, bilateral, comprehensive agreements with trilateral NAFTA being dissolved.

Ergo, no political backlash and no political influence. By the time anyone realizes NAFTA is dead – it’s moot. No formal trilateral NAFTA exit strategy is needed because new deals are already on the books.

I'd just as soon Ellison be out of the statewide office picture since he has grand ambitions.

GUS

Ext, her son borrowed her computer and found hundreds of texts and this video.

If the man on the moon had published a video of ELLISON physically assualting and calling a woman a fucking bitch, would that change what KEEEEF ELLISON did??
Is this situation about who found out, or what Ellison did??

I'll bring this over about Strzok -

a bit more on Bowdich -

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/08/fbi-fires-peter-strzok.php

"According to Strzok’s attorney, the head of the FBI’s office of professional responsibility decided that Strzok should be demoted and suspended for 60 days. This decision, he says, was overruled by FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich, who ordered the firing on Friday.

Bowdich has been with the FBI since 1995, when he began his career with the Bureau as a SWAT team member and sniper. Before that, he was a police officer in New Mexico. Before coming to Washington as Deputy Director, Bowdich ran the FBI’s Los Angeles office.

Thus, Bowdich is a career FBI man, not a political appointee. He has no connections with President Trump."

daddy

General Keane on with Trish Regan expressing great satisfaction with the size and compass of the huge defense Spending Bill that Trump is about to sign. He mentions all the systems we are reinforcing and why we need to reinforce them, then says this:

Gen Keane: Our adversaries have been taking advantage of---China...Russia...(lists their recent aggressive tactics in the South China Sea and in the Ukraine, Syria etc) They did all that because they saw the United States pulling back. We were disengaging, we were not funding Defense. Remember, the biggest payoff from Defense in maintaining good equipment and the right numbers of soldiers, the right numbers of ships, the right numbers of airplanes, is deterrence. It stops our adversaries from taking advantage of us. It prevents bad things from happening. Obviously to have that muscle there, and we may have to use it, but the fact that we've got it---well I'll tell you what, Putin is paying more attention to our Defense Budget than he's paying attention to sanctions, because when he sees that defense Budget growing like it is that reminds him of the Reagan Defense Budget which contributed to the collapse of the Soviet Union...That's what he's watching and he sees the United States coming back. The President is right on the mark here.

Hello, all!

I see the big news is that Strzok has been fired. Good. May indictment come shortly.

I had to go to the funeral of the father of my oldest friend, whom I have known since our school days back in the 600's. Wonderful man, who FINALLY retired at the age of 92, 3 years ago.

He was in the Merchant Marine during WWII (which was quite an adventure for a farm boy from Morgan County, Indiana) and had ships shot out from under him 3 times!!

One of the last of that greatest generation, who mas married to his wife for 63 years, was a great neighbor the Indian doctor next door (who spoke at the funeral) and welcomed everyone into his home.

ANyway, I see the president has 7 tweets so I will go get the ones that are of interest.

Agent Peter Strzok was just fired from the FBI - finally. The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & longer. Based on the fact that Strzok was in charge of the Witch Hunt, will it be dropped? It is a total Hoax. No Collusion, No Obstruction - I just fight back!

Thomas Collins

My take on l'affaire Ellison:

-Son timed the hit job to take down Ellison's primary hopes.

-There is no video showing Ellison dragging Karen Monahan.

-Ellison is guilty of both physical and emotional abuse towards Karen Monahan.

Thomas Collins

Were I a Minnesota voter, it wouldn't make a difference to me, since there would be no way I'd vote for Ellison. I'd vote for Stormy or Omarosa over Ellison.

Very spiteful of Bobby Goodlatte, as his dad is retiring this year.

The head of the FBI’s office of professional responsibility should be fired.

None of them can be trusted, and none of them should continue to have access to the powers and perks of the FBI for one more day.

My question is what dirt do the dems have on Bobby Goodlatte, in order to get him to post that?

Just caught up to the AmThinker column on Hanoi Jane Fonda, Vietnam War Traitor

I've mentioned it before but will again. My CO in the Philippines was Capt Nels Tanner

Amazing man and spent I think 7 years in the Hanoi Hilton. He was an F-4 Driver and I believe a missile they were firing exploded, causing their plane to explode over North Vietnam. his back seater was Clark Terry.

Tanner was tortured while imprisoned, including having his shoulders pulled from their sockets until he couldn't use his arms. He proved to be an embarrassment for the North Vietnamese Army leaders, noting in a written confession for war crimes that he recalled two pilots would not bomb innocent civilians, a Lt. Clark Kent, the alter ego of the character Superman, and Lt. Ben Casey, a television character who was a surgeon and the centerpiece of a medical drama at the time.

When the Hanoi Jane entourage and hanger's on came through the Vietcong proudly announced to the traitorous entourage that American POW's were weak since they revealed more than name, rank and Serial, number. As I recall, thats when the part of jane's extended entourage told the Vietnamese that POW's were lying to them and making them look like fools. As a consequence, there followed a very, very intense set of beatings of a great many of the prisoners and at least one if not more died.

I can speak confidently that my old Commanding Officer, 'Nels' Tanner, was no fan of Jane Fonda or her entourage, and knew for the last 50 years of his life that she was an Un-American bastard.

(Tanner's) grit and unbreakable spirit in the face of that kind of torture led to Tanner being called one of the "Alcatraz Eleven" or the "Alcatraz Gang," names used by the U.S. media to describe 11 high-level captives in the Hanoi Hilton as being unbreakable by the enemy and who were noted as being leaders of a resistance movement. The name came from making an association with the toughest prison in Vietnam and the infamous U.S. prison off the coast of San Francisco.

No wonder I can never catch-up.

Kevlar Kid

in what universe is overthrowing the duly elected President of the United States an act of patriotism?

how much other stink was Strozk fomenting during his time of dedicated service? (/sarc)

-Ellison is guilty of both physical and emotional abuse towards Karen Monahan.

Well that should win him the Somali voters in Minneapolis.

I'm pretty sure nowhere near as deeply, deeply , deeply embarrassed his father is by him.

Porchlight

The words "Sen. Al Franken" tell me everything I need to know about MN.

I know, but things have changed. Since Franken's "election" the Repubs have taken the MN House and are tied with the DFL in the Senate (Democrat-
Farmer-Labor, the MN version of the Dem party).

And Trump came within 43K votes of winning the state.

So although Repubs aren't favored in this race, things are shifting on the ground in MN.

Bunky is now Savotage!!!

Spying on candidate trump, rolling coup attempt on elected Prez, a horrible attack on House leadership on a baseball diamond and we are still on all fours waiting for a rigged special counsel report?

Kevlar Kid

i thoroughly enjoyed, while being simultaneously disgusted, by that account in AT of the whitewash of Jane Fonda's useless life.

her "i still f*ck" movies, along with Diane Keaton's, are just as useless.

the only bigger farce than Fonda's life and career was the whitewashing of the "courageous" Communists in the north who ran the war and led millions to their deaths.

Netflix CFO David Wells to step down

Kevlar Kid

was Wells not a true believer in the Divine Presence of The Bath House Rat and The Beard?

on the Wells sitch, wouldn't be surprised if it's not a move to hollow out the cash cow for funding "resistance" shenanigans by Rice, Jarrett, and Choom LLC.

Nels aparently was an F-8 driver, not an F-4 Driver, my mistake.

He wouldn't talk about it I but I recall on a Thailand layover with me and another Junior Officer, I passed the bowl of rice over to him and he replied something like, "No Thanks, I've had enough rice to last a lifetime."

Miss Marple

Kev,

I wouldn't be surprised, either.

There are so many connections between all these bad actors that I really need a giant chart on the wall, but then my daughter would probably have me committed. LOL!

Explanation on why Strzok was still under FBI employment, from a guy on Twitter who is usually reliable:

The only reason that Strzok wasn't fired immediately is because the IG act only permits the IG to subpoena current employees. They're done with him.

Good afternoon! I wanted to post this earlier,but got busy sorting Christmas ornaments (don't ask). The Portland Press Herald has a story today about British transgender activists who have claimed the lobster emoji as their own. The group,Lobsters Against Transphobia,have petitioned Unicode to approve a pink and blue flag emoji. Until then,they are using the lobster emoji,because it is a gynandromorph. A UMaine lobster biologist said it is rare in lobster,a genetic mutation. Equality Maine hadn't heard about #ClawsForTrans when contacted by a reporter. The executive director said the lobster represents the entire state,so how special could it be?

Case of the vapors alert.

WASHINGTON POST: TRUMP POSED WITH ‘SEXIST’ MOTORCYCLIST PATCH

Trump met with supporters in the “Bikers For Trump” group over the weekend and posed for photos with some of the group’s members at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.

The bikers typically wear vests with dozens of various patches on them, and the Washington Post zoomed in on the photos of the bikers with the president to see what the patches said.

One of the patches seemed to ruffle the feathers of one reporter, who called it “sexist.” The patch in question features an image of a topless woman with guns covering her breasts and the caption, “I [heart] guns and t***ies.”

Gearan added that she does not know if Trump even noticed the patch on the man’s vest, but claimed that the photos of Trump with the bikers are “being scrutinized on Twitter.”

WaPo also pointed out that the man had a patch reading, “Terrorist Hunting Permit,” while another sported one stating, “This is America. We eat meat, we drink beer and we speak f***in’ English.”

Especially since his dad is retiring after 25 hrs. and won't be on the ballot in Nov. Goodlatte Jr. just diminished himself. The Dem running for that seat is a young woman, and somehow out of an R primary field of 9, an excellent young male R candidate emerged.
