I know Clarice posted this but it needs to be re-posted:

https://spectator.org/confirmed-john-brennan-colluded-with-foreign-spies-to-defeat-trump/

John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump. An official in the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even bother to hide their activism, decorating offices with “Hillary for president cups” and other campaign paraphernalia.

A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump. He bastardized standards so that these left-wing activists could burrow in and take career positions. Under the patina of that phony professionalism, they could then present their politicized judgments as “non-partisan.”

Of course he'll skate.

Mark Twain and Angelfish--1908

MARK TWAIN'S ANGEL-FISH ROSTER
and other young women of interest

In 1907, at the age of seventy-two, lonely and widowed, Samuel Clemens began "collecting" surrogate granddaughters -- young girls between the ages of ten and sixteen. Some of the girls were those he met aboard ships that carried him back and forth to England or on his travels to the island of Bermuda. Clemens maintained correspondences with the girls -- most were from prominent and wealthy families who traveled in the same social circles with Clemens. They and their parents often visited him in his homes in New York....

Who knew Samuel Longhorn Clemens = Mark Twain = Bill O'Reilly!

Marlene, I have to say I knew little about that. In his last years he's so bitter about life and then has the awful falling out with that woman who was his live in biographer-ssistant, that when I got the latest copy of his Biography which he didn't want published until a century after his death, that I quit reading as it depressed me.


Samuel Clemens and Helen Allen in Bermuda, 1908.

And thank goodness his fingers aren't crossed here with Irene Gerkin!

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, in an interview Tuesday in Louisville, Ky., said he didn’t know much about Mr. Ossoff, a 30-year-old former House staffer. Mr. Sanders said he isn’t prepared to back Democrats just because of a party label.

“If you run as a Democrat, you’re a Democrat,” he said. “Some Democrats are progressive and some Democrats are not.”

Asked if Mr. Ossoff is a progressive, Mr. Sanders, an independent who challenged Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential primary, demurred. “I don’t know,” he said.

Seems to me that every move Fox has made in the last few years has been to run from its conservative roots. Bet it will be as good for them as it has been for GOPe.

GOPe likes being a wing of the Uniparty; Fox wants to blend in with the MSM. Frying pan, meet fire.

Dad was mocking POTUS and Mattis this morning during our daily chat, encroaching on our self-imposed politics boundaries. We'd decided not to waste time talking about "the country."

Anyway he slipped up and said that an AP story he'd heard re-reported on NPR recently alleged that Mattis and POTUS both were unaware that the carrier battle group heading for NORK was actually in Singapore "without the knowledge of the CIC and DOD."

I listened and had the wherewithal to ask: "Where did you get that story from?"

Once informed my reply was to ask him to exercise caution re stories sourced from AP and NPR because the "didn't know" angle is just more of the drumbeat about DJT being unfit for office.

Also asked him about his own experience aboard the USS Forrestall in 52-53.

"Was there ever a time when the commanding officer of that battle group just decided on his own where he was going to go and what he was going to do without *anybody* in the Joint Chiefs or the Commander in Chief knowing what was going on?"

He's surrounded by progressives in rural Virginia (relokes) who were in the tank for The Rat and who are pro-abortion, anti-religion, pro-Shadooby voters.

They have a gotcha argument re DJT: If you say you respect the office of the president and you respect DJT then you are contradicting yourself.

I have a lot of patience with Dad. He does listen. He just doesn't access media beyond NPR, MSNBC, and their local paper.

Methinks he'd be horrified as to how different the "news" really is from other sources, let's say from Cheryl Atkisson, Clarice Feldman, or Andy McCarthy on just about any issue pertaining to DJT and the Deep State Uniparty.


StoopI'd or Liar?

Technically they werent lying or ignorant about the EVENTUAL DESTINATION.

So maybe they could even say it was going into mothballs, without indicating 'when'

daddy on IPad

On the possible plus side of Officer O'Reilly's departure:

1). It may contractually free up Dennis Miller to do something more valuable than weekly small spots on "The Factor,"'and

2). Bernie Goldberg may be able to finally finish a sentence without interruption.

Old Lurker

Kev, If my Dad came back to life every morning, he would be dead again by the end of the evening news. Talk about Groundhog Day.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I do have a soft spot in my heart for Bill O'Reilly. Back in the 90's our cable system refused to get Fox News. I would call them once a week and complain, and the answer was always that there wasn't enough demand. (This was in THE most conservative district in Indiana, Dan Burton's old district.)

So, when DirecTV became available, we went for satellite. The very first Fox New show I saw was O'Reilly, and when I turned it on he was ranting about Fidel Castro and had a photo of him up with "Pinhead" under it! HA!

As you can imagine, I was ecstatic.

Over the years, however, he's gotten more belligerent and sort of stale. He probably should have retired last year.

I am glad to see Jesse Waters wil get more air time.

Chinese carmakers, VW and BMW roll out Tesla killers.

I'm impressed PT Musk has has incubated such a crop of minute-old suckers this long but eventually it's hard to see how big league competition will not crush his make-it-up-on-volume business model.

Interestingly the story seems to confirm yet another Trump claim as Tesla's are subject to a 25% tariff in China. Level playing field?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I was in the car a bit ago and Donald Trump Jr. was on with Hannity. He's apparently joined an organization (maybe American First - didn't catch the name) and will be campaigning for the GOP guy who is running to replaceRyan Zinke out in Montana.

He says he has gotten together with several people who are going to push Trump policies on-line and with ads, as well as appearances. He was adamant that he isn't running for anything, buit he is really angry at the media coverage, and feels like all of the people he met during the campaign deserve to hear what's really going on.

I did a quick search but couldn't find the name of the group, so that's all I know.

Marlene

MM,I have the same soft spot for PBS. We haven't given money in years and watch few if any shows,but...when we moved to northern Maine (pre-cable) the ONLY channels were a local CBS station,Canadian Broadcasting and PBS (Maine Public TV). The daughter was a toddler,so I was so thankful for Sesame St. and especially Mr. Rogers. CBC had a children's show called Mr. Dress-Up. If you think Mr. Rogers was quiet and calm,Mr.Dress-Up was like having a couple of glasses of wine. Ha.

I like PBS for the cultural shows and some of their British dramas and mysteries.
They are having their annual fundraising auction later this week and I don't believe they should have federal funding.
They do pretty well locally with donations.

I'm sure others are as shocked as I am that Andrew Cuomo's bio couldn't sell more than 3,200 copies. I mean, who could resist the compelling saga of a guy who got himself elected governor solely on the name recognition from his father, and has accomplished nothing of note.

The question is who really paid the advance money. That will reveal the quid pro quo.

Clarice Feldman

Instead of pecksniffing on nothingburgers, you'd think CREW and the other "good govt" types would focus on these bribes and hidden campaign contributions masking as book advances, wouldn't you?

daddy at Weeby's Burgerjoint

Thanks for that timeline info, Clarice. 6 weeks is reasonably plausible deniability.

On another timeline related issue, anyone know if Anne Colter will be refused permission to speak at Berkeley about the same time as the Georgia 06 Runnoff? The expected mob violence in the streets, if it escalates as I expect it to and the cops keep sitting on their hands, should be enough to generate plenty of bloody images and inflammatory headlines. Depending on how successful the Media is in painting which side are the victims, it might sway some votes in that or any other special Elections at the time. Given my personal druthers, I'd chip in to pay Shia Lebouf's airfare to Berkeley along with that for his Anti-Trump flag and the vomiting washed up actress from the link above.

Porchlight

If Cuomo is the Dem golden boy for 2020, it'll be funny watching the left try to use the usual "inherited from his father" memes on Trump.

Porchlight

Then again that didn't stop them with Gore vs. Bush...

daddy,

I have come to the conclusion that Ann Coulter doesn't care about the Geoergia 6 election. She will simply ascribe any loss as "not conservative enough" and make her usual snide comments.

She's nothing but an attention seeker who needs to sell her next book.

I don't like these people goig to berkley just to provoke riots. There is something to be said for making a case for free speech, but there are too many on the right excited about getting to show up and knock some heads.

No good will come of this.

I'm looking out the big plate glass windows here at WeeBee's Burgers on O'Malley that face in the direction opposite of the mountains. I notice I cannot spot a single flake of snow for the first time since October. How weird is that?

Momma was laughing earlier about wondering if young Nelson was going to be able to take a poop come summer, since all he's known since being with us is climbing up on snowbanks and letting her rip:)

Does he tell how his Kennedy ex wife gave it away at the biker bars when he couldn't satisfy her? I might read that.

I don't know about that. No good has come of us allowing ourselves to be trampled, either. The left is not used to us fighting back.

MM,

Ditto, Coulter with me. Never liked her. Smart ass, snarky skank who seeks out her own calamities. Plus she was pushing Christie, IIRC. How's that for intellectual rigor.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Porchlight,

Maybe it's because I am older.

There is a difference in fighting when you were minding your own business and were attacked. It's quite another thing to go looking for trouble.

I don't know the answer, I just know that this rioting should be tamped down (like Auburn did) instead of escalating it.

jimmyk

Coulter is 60-40 for me. She can be very funny, she always has her facts straight, and her legal background shows through her arguments (in a good way). I don't mind the showmanship and attitude--that's a way to pierce the MSM fog and get attention. I don't always agree with her, to say the least, but I trust her. As an example, she's been very strong on vindicating Joseph McCarthy and the anti-Communism of that era.

Tammy once told a story how she considered Coulter a friend until TB phrased something awkwardly and Ann, rather than contacting her to point it out, jumped on Twitter to ridicule her. Actions like that have consequences.

Porchlight

I don't know the answer, I just know that this rioting should be tamped down (like Auburn did) instead of escalating it.

I guess I'm seeing it more as a demonstration of a willingness to fight back. Of course it will be portrayed as escalation, but Antifa always punches first.

DebinNC

I'd like to see Mike Huckabee on air again. I think Trump offered him Amb. to Israel and he declined. He's only 61 and still has a lot he could contribute imo.

From Deb's link on mask Laws:

CALIFORNIA Penal Code Section 182-185
185. Section One Hundred and Eighty-five. It shall be unlawful for any person to wear any mask, false whiskers, or any personal disguise (whether complete or partial) for the purpose of: One--Evading or escaping discovery, recognition, or identification in the commission of any public offense. Two--Concealment, flight, or escape, when charged with, arrested for, or convicted of, any public offense. Any person violating any of the provisions of this section shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor.

So I guess you don't need a California based Federal Judge to issue any rulings, since the Police in Berkeley refuse to enforce the Law as written when protesters toss firebombs on Campus.
