Continuing with Boris, previous thread: "...main weapon and defense is the appearance that at any time he can call the Kraken from the vasty deep. If you still want Trump to pull it off against the odds, you might consider contributing to that appearance."

a) the assumption that Trump can summon the Kraken from the vastly deep was burst when his AG, without consulting him, took steps to have a sworn enemy of Trump appointed Chief Inquisitor and given unlimited thugs and money to take him down. b) I thought our side always took comfort in not being like the blind supporters of the Left who back the plays called no matter what, rather that we view our leaders as partners in accomplishing our goals, and not our masters. c) if contributing to that appearance means to support without thinking, then please look elsewhere for team members. This war will not be won with my Zombies beating the other Zombies.

Jack is Back!

First or irrelevant?

Well, Elmer Fudd, or whoever is today in the JOM lexicon, was spot on with Tucker. And he is 100% correct. You can speak freely but you should also respect the flag and anthem who express and define those freedoms.

I couldn't agree more.

from the last thread:

"Also, hasn't Sessions got more important things to do, like going after Power, Rice, over the unmasking and spying, just to name one item?"

jimmyk, my belief is that Sessions is similar to a lot of non-productive people I have worked with. They have too much anxiety to attack the major projects so they fill their time with less meaningful tasks. Power Rice unmasking is the story of the century and should be at the top of Jeff's to do list.

Does anyone think that Corker will be even more obnoxiously a RINO in his last eighteen months in the Senate? I think he's jealous of the attention that Paul and Johnny Wet Start are getting.

I'm with Boris on this one. You don't have to be a zombie, but it may help the cause to give the appearance. Insty has some new-ish tag line which I forget about escalation from nice Tea Party to grumpy Trump to a shadowy future Kraken Movement.

It's the tag line rolled out after the "You want more Trump? This is how you get more Trump".

Oh, and whoever posted Stone's preliminary statement, thank you--very clear and educational! I hope he gave 'em hell in committee.

Excellent description, narciso.

I'm afraid that Jeff Sessions did not sign on for the exhaustive effort that's required to take it on. He serves in a minor capacity, and has earned only "good" marks from the man who appointed him. Faint praise for just minding the border.

He should step aside. This job requires someone who understands and accepts the challenge and the dangers ahead.

--Folks, re. Villanueva, please recall that no matter what he's been pressured to say now, when he had to take a stand, he did.

I'm sure nobody here expects him to commit professional suicide to demonstrate fealty to your point of view.

Right?--

I can't expect a Ranger who faced down wild eyed goatsuckers armed with AKs and RPGs on three different tours to do the right thing because of a bunch of football players? He can risk his life for little pay on behalf of his country, but he can't risk a lot of pay on behalf of the same country?
And, sorry, he gets no credit for taking a stand that he then self-denounced.

The acting head of the DEA resigned/retired today. Media says he butted heads with Trump, which may well be. However, a guy on Twitter that I follow pointed out his biography indicates something interesting, which in this screen cap is highlighted in blue.

My idiot step-monster rented a condo down the hall to an elderly convicted child molester who went to our church when I was a teenager. He came unhinged (from drink IIRC), and they had to get his sister to take him away. S-M saved his laptop! After she died, I found it and snuck it into the condo dumpster at night.

Power Rice unmasking is the story of the century and should be at the top of Jeff's to do list.

Who says it isn't?

Last time we got the full court circle jerk from our GOP betters they let Holder, Lerner, Clinton, etc skate.

You want Sessions to run to the microphone like Issa, Chafed-putz, and Treytor Goud-mouth?

What good has that ever done??

Every week we get surprised by something the DoJ is doing to the positive. The MFM has seldom been ahead of whatever announcement is made. Nobody is blabbing at the DoJ so tell me, how does anyone know that "Elmer Fudd" is sitting on his dick?

You don't.

All some seem to know is how they would handle it if they were there and if everything at the DoJ was exactly the way they imagined it in their hypothetical swam draining.

My guess? Scrubbing away many decades of rot isn't done in an hour with garbage bought off an "as seen on TV" ad.

Good for Anheuser Busch, although several of us predicted this outcome a day ago. The real question, why did not the NFL have this response? And since they did not, I call for Goodell to be shown the door. A chastised and contrite NFL is a fresh start...

From Rooney's letter:


I also know that our players have tremendous respect for the members of our military services, including their teammate Alejandro Villanueva. There was never any desire on the part of our players to show disrespect for our service members.

--"The intentions of Steelers players were to stay out of the business of making political statements by not taking the field."--

They just don't get it.
Respect for your country and its flag and anthem is not, or should not be anyway, a political statement. It should be the default.

More particularly, the fans pay their salaries. The large majority don't want them doing this, so they're spitting in their fans, their ultimate employer's face.

Not surprising. There will be more of it. I am not concerned about Alabama voters as much as hanging his comments around the rest of the candidates next fall. Like they did with Akin.

Hopefully, the increase in attentive Trump voters and the internet will stop most of it.

Seems like lots of stuff about Comey is starting to surface. Maybe something is going on that the media isn't picking up.

“When I made the case that I did not believe that the DNC had been hacked by the Russians, in fact, that I believed that it had not been hacked at all, and made the point that the Democratic National Committee had refused to allow the FBI to inspect is servers, instead using a paid-for IT firm called CloudStrike, I was corrected by Congress[woman] Jackie Speier of California, who informed me that she now knew that the DNC had, in fact, turn over their servers to the FBI. This was, essentially, seconded by Congressman Adam Schiff of California, this came to an extraordinary surprise to Trey Gowdy, the Republican from South Carolina. Mr. Gowdy pointed out, to his Democratic colleagues, that FBI Director James Comey and Homeland Security Secretary Johnson, had both testified – under oath – to the House Intelligence Committee, that the FBI had not been allowed to examine the DNC servers. This is a bombshell revelation, somebody is lying. It is either Congressman Schiff and Congress[woman] Speier, or, of course, it is Mr. Comey and Secretary Johnson.”

if contributing to that appearance means to support without thinking ...

Well, you are entitled to your POV, but not giving up on Trump because you think he missed his best chance to drain the swamp is not the same thing, in my opinion, as feminists going all the way in for the lying cheating trouser snake raper, assaulter, and harasser of young females who was president at the time.

So, no, support without thinking, not me either, but you could maybe think about giving the appearance of simple acceptance until Trump does something actually, you know, bad.
