Speaking of Russert, Lurch told him 4570 days ago that he'd release his military records.

Well, I look forward to Chuck Todd being arrested.

After many years of LEAKS going on in Washington, it is great to see the A.G. taking action! For National Security, the tougher the better!

Extraneus

Well written, TM.

centralcal

Truthfully, I can't think of any serious "leaker" giving info to F. Chuck Todd. Can you? He is just a passer on of info collected by others - a not so newsy gossip. He will never be subpoenaed because he is never gonna be a recipient of the "juicy" leaks.

Ah Little Chuckles is going all "butch" on us. We'll see what happens when the rubber hoses come out.

Clarice Feldman

Thank you, T M. we cannot do enough to set the record on Plamegate clear.

Kudos TM!
Plame reference takes me back to when I first started posting at JOM!
Thanks for all that you do to stimulate conversation and camaraderie.

jib & tonto-anyone in the hamptons driving that new bentley suv? I didn't know they made one until I was behind it at the doctors' office when the diva got her wisdom teeth removed.

Gracious. And the maserati levante seems to be the other one suddenly popping up. I am driving along at normal speed while these other suvs want to make their turbos sound like they are just back from indy.

I think red has it right. Why be in something so precious when so many around you drive stupid?

Kenny Easley gets into the Football HOF and invokes BLM.

He had to go there because it took him 20 years to embarrass the HOF voters to put him there.

Drove by a side of the road, flag waving, honk if you support our President rally about 40 miles north of Bedminster this afternoon. Lots of honking. Still winning.

Captain Hate

Ugh. I was thinking of going to Canton for the parade because of Kurt Warner, who should've been there when he was first eligible except he serves as an embarrassment to the enneffell talent evaluation geniuses plus they had to let the career interception leader in first, but the tickets were all gone. Hearing that about Easley, who belongs in the Hall of Slightly Above Average, makes me glad I stayed home.

Captain Hate

Before Kristol's brain went all eggy, he used to scorch F Chuck pretty severely on the Psycho Joe show. Even Low IQ Bleeding Facelift would laugh at him.

Plame was a Comey vendetta aimed at impeaching Cheney. Hillary got more spies killed before her Vodka and Diazepam breakfast.

rse, my dad had a Bentley Mulsanne. Beautiful ride, but he couldn't drive it anywhere let alone park it. And yes, you put the hammer down and it went places. :)

Well Chuck Todd is as lightweight a reporter as Andrea Mitchell and we know she was leaked to. Here, from TM back in 2005, is an excellent JOM post of his explaining her revelations to Imus and then her rapid backtracking once she realized she had 'Effed up.

IMUS: Who'd you find it out from? Russert?

MITCHELL: I found it out from Novak.

IMUS: Maybe Russert's lying?

MITCHELL: You know Tim Russert doesn't lie.

Remember fellow who wrote the inr memo had been the second highest diplomat in niamey back in 99, after the assassination of maanara. Those who dismissed the content of the document before hand do t take into account the extraordinary fragility of the regime at that time.

That erstwhile "news" magazine, the E-communist," engages in fabulism on the upcoming US-North Korea war:

https://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21725763-everyone-would-lose-how-nuclear-war-korea-could-start-and-how-it-might-end

I recall all of the concern about Saddam's trained forces and his ability to use chemical and biological warfare to counter any invasion. IIRC, the Americans were in Baghdad in a couple of days, as Saddam's troops deserted.

I wonder what North Korean troops would do.

GUS

{{I wonder what North Korean troops would do.}}

They'd die in their piss stained uniforms.

Patterico

daddy,

on the Bart train from the Oakland Coliseum to Berkeley

The Coliseum BART station has always been pretty rough; did you go to the downtown Berkeley station? How is it these days? It has been ages since I have been on BART, and I'd bet it is pretty run down and full of bums.

No -- "street people!" Bad right-winger!

Well that's not a totally crazy scenario, pyongang regards Seoul even as foolish as moon I n as a puppet regime the us has taken some preemptive moved to relocate 5he bulk of us military from the Seoul crossfire.

narc,

No, it is not bat-shit crazy, but what is a "news" magazine doing printing this sort of thing? There are all sorts of possible twists and turns that cannot be reduced properly to this sort of bilge.

I'd prefer straight news reporting. I'm a dreamer...

A similar scenario plays out in turtledoves latest from the hot war, in this alt reality the us was forced to deploy nukes during the Korean war, this prompted a soviet strike on Paris.

did I just wake up in a Seinfeldian bizarro world?

In a scathing Facebook post entitled "Mid Summer Anger," movie director (and infamous Putin interviewer), Oliver Stone lashes out at Washington's passage of the Russia sanctions bill, suggesting that US intelligence agencies aren't doing their job and are misleading the public in the "false-flag war" against Moscow.

At the bottom of the MSN story I linked above on the criminal grandma there is this notification:

Our advantage is technology and precision munitions so they try to neutralize it, the us. I tribesman typified by khalil from house of spies would use assymetrical or hybrid warfare against coalition forces: having used the second intifada as a beta test in the west bank.

Clarice Feldman

Maybe sign language and smoke signals, daddy.

I love this MSN Headline: Fans launch petition to boycott NFL if Kaepernick remains unsigned

Great!

A group of fans who believe Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed by the NFL have launched a petition threatening to boycott the league if he isn't signed to a roster this season.

Have at it, and please don't be a bunch of cowards like all those Lefties screaming that they'd move out of the country if Trump got elected, then reneged. Have the balls this time to carry thru with your stupidity.

 narciso.

The nature of what passes for intelligence the Niger documents which were handed over to a schlub like martino steele is a more sophisticated variant, re the dossier.

matt, deplore me if you must

Bentleys and Rollers (which used to be very close to clones of each other) just aren't worth the expense. A fair number can be picked up at moderate prices, but it's the maintenance and parts that kill you.

Here in car central OC, we are now seeing the Bentley and Maserati SUV's as well but I just noticed a Bugatti shop in town. Nothing succeeds like excess out here.

I believe the NoKo's have been using a highly edited version of the remake of Red Dawn as a training film. They have been prepping the People's air jitney for days now.

I can honestly say that there are very few of my car around these parts. Of course the loose hay and feed crumbs are optional.

I finally learned that one can only drive one car at a time. Otherwise they have to be driven regularly and take up space and get dusty.

daddy

I am way behind as usual so apologies, but this Gateway Pundit story on Loretta Lynch using her grandma's name to communicate by E-Mail with DOJ Officials while still Atty General sure stinks to high Heaven in my book. I did see the Trey Gowdy video grilling her earlier where she says she does not use personal E-Mails for official stuff.

REVEALED=> Loretta Lynch Used Her Grandmother’s Name as Alias to Communicate with DOJ Officials

Any updates or guesses on if this may lead to anything?

Is Fox really trying to f*ck up?

Fox News suspended anchor Eric Bolling on Saturday while the network conducts an investigation into allegations that he sent inappropriate photographs to female co-workers.

In a statement, the network said Mr. Bolling “has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently under way.”

The decision to suspend Mr. Bolling, who appears on both the Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network , came after the HuffPost reported Friday that he allegedly had sent pictures of male genitalia to co-workers.

One more conservative bites the dust. Or, are they all really this dumb?

GUS,

Regarding Chelsea:

Sheltered from any criticism by nannies and then Sidwell Friends, followed by university with fawning professors. Seldom spending time with parents and when she did, fed a steady diet of how they were persecuted and how they were smart and most of the country was stupid. Given a plum job on NBC with no qualifications. Given a book contract for something no doubt ghost-written. Wedding paid for by Haitian charity money. Married the son of a criminal.

It's amazing to me she isn't found wandering the streets drooling.

VW has owned Bentley since 1998. For decades before that, the cars were Rolls's with a different grille. BMW owns Rolls Royce autos. They had to buy the name and hood ornament from the RR aircraft co., which was split from the car company in the 70's by HMG, then the owner. Lots of litigation involved.

When Chelsea was a girl, her parents would yell awful things at her solely to prepare her for public life. Or maybe they were yelling at each other and then lied about it? No, couldn't happen.
