Well, this crap is routine with this White House anyway. Almost like they knew they would be breaking laws all over... EPA, IRS, State.... the surprise would be an appointee in this group without a secret email. Hilligula is uniquely criminal in that even her routine crap was on the secret side -- something the others never did.

Thank you for the new thread
What do you think Comey will do about Hillary?

game, set and match,

actually that site pretty much rebuts the logorhea of myers, who did a pretty good study of volodya,

The Infamous Ignatz

---an extensive record of how such sensitive information often looped throughout President Obama’s foreign policy apparatus on unclassified systems, from embassies to the United Nations to the White House--

This is the argument?

I still maintain that this was a volodya deal,

Gus and Henry
I bow to your expertise wrt Ryan . He is from your state so you automatically know more about him.
I think Gus's hits the mark in his summation of the situation
Porch:
If the candidate will not learn and refuses to listen he will lose.

Captain Hate

Welp if known and trusted security hawks like Denis McDonough and Susan Rice sent those emails, it must have been for something important like a takeout order.

common man

BTW Beasts, please read my comment on the last thread in response to your holy shit screed. I have been absent while trying to reconcile myself to a nominee who I find, (for the third straight election ) to be quite flawed. I thought I was finally onboard, and then I got a raft of shit from you over facts. I am madder than I have been in weeks, but tell me what I missing. If we are not on the same team, just say so, it may make me reconsider my clothes pin decision...

Buckeye

The fact the Zero has come out supporting Shrillary tells us where this is going, at least during this administration.

Why does the NYT even need to bother?

narciso

they do take some issue with the notion that the svr has the emails, but if a romanian taxi driver
with a home made sniffer, can do it, how can the sorm not.

Buckeye

common man,

Hang on to the clothes pin. If Trump screws things up the diving boards on The Ledge will be all warmed up.

So Romney either knows something about Trump’s taxes that he shouldn’t know so he should shut up . . .

Or he doesn’t know anything about Trump’s taxes so he should shut up.

That he runs off at the mouth indicates to me he was not a RINO; he may have been an elitist crony and never have been a Republican at all.

glasater

I just tweeted re Mitt Romney's screed on releasing tax returns and Hillary picking up on that refrain..

Why didn't Mitt go after all the hidden carp in 0bama's background in '12? He never said boo about that at all.

PS
I'm the first JOMmer who has gotten to meet our dear Pagar. What a treat to have him, along with his darling family, visit our little valley. He's a true gentleman and it was a privilege to spend some time with him.

Gentlejim

OT, surprise, I know, but I just breezed over a Wapo article debunking the Canadian kid's Mayan discovery. They seemed to take great pleasure in doing so. They don't come right out and say "scientific method", but they allude to it. My question is, why don't/haven't these asshats take the same attitude when it comes to AGW or whatever the hell we are supposed to call it this evening? Maybe Spatial thermal enhancement? Pisses me off.

Gentlejim,

Of course they take pleasure. We see a smart, curious, creative kid who ought to be encouraged.

They see someone who, at age 15, accomplished something more worthwhile than any of the adults at the WaPo ever have or will. Of course they enjoy tearing him down.

I'll go look, common man, but you shouldn't be worried about my opinion. I'm no Trump sycophant - having been first for Walker, then Fiorina, and then Cruz. I just want to beat Hillary and neuter the GOPe.

clarice

Ask the never Trumps how they can hope to undo Obama's excesses without a Republican president and Congress.Ask them what they think he'll do worse than Hillary? Do they prefer John Bolton as his foreign policy adviser or Sid Blumenthal?would they rather see Lanny Davis as AG or Trey Gowdy?
Say you're asking for a friend.

narciso

they seem to be in a delusional reverie, like bruce wayne, in that horrible film last month,

Beasts of England

Okay, I saw your reply. Let me try this: people voted for and that's all we know. If we want to tabulate anti-Trump votes being those who voted for someone else, then we have to assess the other candidates and their anti-votes the same way.

As I said above, I just think Trump has the best shot against Hillary based purely on enthusiasm. I think he's a total dick - but he's 'our' total dick.

I am rather candid about getting behind the guy, rather than hand-wringing. He ain't my first, second, or third choice - I'm not happy about it either, but so what. Color me with a clothespin, too, but a very enthusiastic one.

If my motivations are not clear or if they're inflicting hurt feelings upon others then maybe I'll back it down a little. But not much.

Theo

I thought TM had abandoned the site. Probably tired of all the fighting and name calling.

If someone could repost that "end of thread" link that would be great

Free James D!

Clarice @ 8:34

Just give them this link:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_positions_filled_by_presidential_appointment_with_Senate_confirmation

And ask whether they prefer all of those positions filled by Hillary's friends and confidants, or Trump's? It should not be a hard decision.

Theo

Beasts -

I think that you have perfectly nailed the JOM consensus on Trump : "He's a total dick but he's OUR total dick."

A few dissenters on each side but that seems to basically sum up how most people here feel about Trump.

narciso

so who hasn't seen civil war, and when can we talk about it?

henry

I have not seen civil war.... but don't plan to either. No need to hold back on my account. Don't know about others. :)

clarice

Good point James D.

Beasts of England

lol, Theo. Sometimes you gotta dance with what you brung. And to be my occasionally blunt self: nobody offered me a damned foot massage before I voted for McCain. :)

windansea

Earlier on Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA), the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, told host Neil Cavuto there was “good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell” in current Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s taxes. Romney speculated the bombshell could involve his net worth or giving to the disabled, including disabled veterans.

notice how the panama papers faded when they didn't just involved obscure oligarchs but red queen, the castro brothers, and their south american equivalents,

Beasts of England

And I said on the other thread: Mittser offered up a summary of his taxes from his CPA, not his returns. Bite me, Mitt.

windansea

If I recall correctly, Trump defended Romney in 2012 against Harry Reid's tax slur

GUS

No Theo, I think you just bored TM to sleep.
But we do appreciate your "concern".

Pagar

The lunch and art tour with glasater was just so fantastic. If you get anywhere near her home base in Walla Walla, Wa. make the effort to meet her. As near as the internet can figure we are probably about 3200 miles apart so we should be close to the longest distance apart. Just a most wonderful experience for my family and I to meet her.

Miss Marple

Been gone and am sitting in parking lot for granddaughter. Just saw news about Mitt.

I agree with Beasts. Think I will ask Romney to refund the money I donated to his lame campaign.

Did he learn nothing from the ambush by Reid?? Nothing?

Mittens is just showing how tough he can be on fellow Republicans. Obama and Candy Crowley, not so much. There's a word for that...

Anyone know how big Mitt's hands are??

Just guessing but I would say smaller than Trumps. Guess he must be

Beasts, the question should be.....Why is Romney running his cake hole?? Who is writing Romneys script.

Which one's Shemp?

Why would Romney suddenly sound like Harry Reid?

Lurker Susie, you bet he's jealous. Romney carried his dog on a roof rack on his car, Trump carries his ferret on his head!!
I was already sick to my guts of the Republican Party/GOPe, but it's getting even worse.
What is the END GAME for these people???? I believe they want TRUMP to lose, so they can retain CONTROL of the stench ridden cesspool.

Lurker Susie

Gus,

I agree 100%

Captain Hate

Maybe it was R$ who smacked Popeye Reid around over the tax thing; I'd blame an exercise band too.

narciso

back to poi, it's striking how even in the final episodes, (redacted) cbs, they are striving for complexity, re finch's lessons to the machine, and even reese's reservations of what he has done, and how it prevents him from a normal life, many of these shows are sort of the urban western of the 21st century,

Lurker Susie

For us it's country first for our kids and grandkids. For them its power and influence, not country first

OL, can we see those cocktail parties from the ledge?

Joan

Gus, that's a great question --

Who would have thought smooth, smiling Romney would be as jealous as a runner-up to the prom queen!

Captain Hate

Yes, we've been discussing last night's episode at Zuckerberg and how Reese is precluded from a normal life, about which Zoe gave him a tutorial last season.

Lurker Susie

Romney sees the wind on Trumps back and is having a temper tantrum like a two year old in the candy isle.

Captain Hate

Mitt Costanza, always do the opposite of what your instincts dictate.

narciso

I would put Jack Bauer and Michael Weston in that category as well, if one operates in the shadows,
facing who knows what kind of evil, how normal does one's life turnout to be, in Weston's case, he had to be declared dead, (in part to the shortsightedness of the city of miami city council) in order to be free,

GUS

Lurker Susie, I believe it's worse than that. I believe TRUMP represents the END of the GOPeePee as we have known it since Reagan left office. The good old boys CLUB is not only not EXCLUSIVE anymore, but TRUMP is RODNEY DANGERFIELD in CADDY SHACK.
GAMBLING IS ILLEGAL IN THE GOPeePee sir!!!!!
The NEW FACE of the Republican Party has heretofore only been welcome when handing out checks. And he handed out MORE to the LIBTARDS!!
Reagan was an outsider too. Reagan was not welcome at "the top" until he kicked in the door.
I am NOT a Trump guy, but Romney is spewing nonsense for a REASON.

***Rodney Dangerfield!! I crack myself up.

Captain Hate

I haven't weighed in on the absolute improbability of Shaw being alive; not sure why other than nobody has written a Tiger Beat post for me to blow up.

Captain Hate

TRUMP is RODNEY DANGERFIELD in CADDY SHACK.

That is perfect; is R$ Ted Knight?

narciso

apparently she is, from the previews, I've changed my mind and dubbed him Mayor Dagett, because Bane was never this stupid,

GUS

R$. Is that Romney??

Lurker Susie

gus,

Great comparison. Guess we should we refer to Trump as Rodney from now on. I did not vote for Trump in my state primary but I am in the never ever Hillary category. So Trump has my vote

Captain Hate

Yes, Gus, R-Money. Or is Ted Knight Rove?

Well maybe De Assihole, will "allow" Chik fil a if they include a third bathroom for "freaks".

Count me in for the total dick. Clothes pin and all. It beats the lyin bitch.

BTW, both McCain and now Romney have totally and completely reinforced for me that I was totally correct in holding my nose. I am praying that I wont have an instance in the near future were I dont have the same feeling about the latest flawed nominee.

Miss Marple 2

Hmmmm.

I wonder if Romney's outburst is because he is afraid Boy Wonder will be enthralled by the evil Donald, deserting his mentor.

Mitt's accusation was pretty hysterical, especially since it was the same one used by Reid.

Mitt's daddy issues are that his daddy wouldn't endorse the Republican ticket in 1964.

On a serious note. My bro at State once told me of the High side and the Low side, and he did so as he was sitting at a desk with 2 separate computers. He told me he'd be fired and in jail if anything that was only allowed on the "high side" was disseminated on the "low side". He never mentioned having his own PERSONAL SERVER that could publish whatever he pleased, and he never mentioned getting to DELETE his YOGA PICS .............and SUCH.
He always kept his personal SERVER at a Fish Camp in Wausau Wisconsin, in the spare bathroom.
Everybody did that. What's the big deal WAPO??

Johns_Creek_Bill

Re: Romney and Trump's tax returns.

There is great trepidation about Trump's tax returns. I think Romney is wrong about a big bombshell.

The hope is that he releases them before they are selectively leaked in October.

I suspect Trump has not released them because they will bolster the theory that he is not worth as much as a says he is and they will show that he is not that charitable. I would bet that he has given significantly more to the Clinton Foundation than to Veterans related groups.

The MSM is going to go 24/7 on Trump's tax returns. Trump's ability to mitigate the attacks without giving in will be an earlier indicatation if he can withstand the media colonoscopy that he is scheduled for.

If he wins this his chance of victory goes up considerably and I will be relieved that I did not take Beasts up on his offer.

Mitt and Ryan are fantasizing themselves as great heroes who are going to save America from the evil Donald Trump.
