Isn't there uranium on the Bundy property or something?

Miss Marple,

Wouldn't that be the icing on the cake that ties it all together with the Uranium -1 Awan Bro's Rent-a-Car Hezbollah drug running Iranian Deal FUSION/GPS fake Dossier Russian/Trump Collusion Tarmac FISA unmasking scam GATE. If we just tied together the first letters it'd be longer than that LGBTQXYZ moniker they use in Canada to un-teach boys how to be boys.

If it is all one happy Grand Unified Theory of corruption, what GATE are we gonna' call it? "CleanTheSwampGate" seems to lack a little flair.


(re-posting, a little sheepishly)

agreed, Ig. Reminds me of how when we were young the knock on Reagan was that he was just a "cowboy" - even though, at the same time we absolutely loved cowboys. go figure.

Used to manage pop/rock bands, Beasts - hence the migration from London to NY to LA. never wore spandex, but definitely cringed a bit watching spinal tap ;-)

Yes I linked some of those pieces which are on a Ukrainian public affairs site, because that is what Harding used as his binafides. Referring one particular character who was extradited to the states a Mr firtash.

Bonus points if you ever had to tell your acts that they'd be playing to a more selective audience, Exdemocrat!! :)

 Duda: Progressive and loving it!!

So I just calculated my taxes using the CNN tax calculator and according to the good folks at fake news central I'm going to get an extra $28.00 a month.

Roflmao.......Jesus......maybe I calculated it wrong, but that's the number I came up with.

Oh,an every Republican member of Congress is discussing cutting entitlements next year so that'll be nice.

Not sure I like this "winning".

 Duda: Progressive and loving it!!

Noooooooo....$28 a month???????That can't be right. I'm gonna go back and re-calculate.


Contrast that with the fact that the administration took pains not to extradite fayyad and merebi also from Europe. In this case cCzechoslovakia.What special ingredient did they used tie make there, Semtex, plastic explosive.

 Duda: Progressive and loving it!!

Yup. I'm getting an extra $28 a month due to Trump.

That's quite a Tablet article, exdem.

The dude who handled the DOSSIER for McCain, is just a wee bit DUMBER than his boss. Johnny McShitStain. But he does have a really really KOOOOOL, HIPSTER BEARD.



I don't know what happened, it attached itself like confetti. The first is about Hezbollah larger ambitions from 2006, the other is about who seems to have squeezed about the dossier.

Dave (in MA)

The actress who portrays Mary Jo Kophechne in Chappaquiddick is the one who played Zoe in House of Cards.

I guess it's becoming something of a specialty.

When are they going to do the Joe Scarborough film?

Dave (in MA)

Narciso, what do you use to post? Maybe we can offer some advice.


Check out who this fucking CLOWN is. Read a few lines and before you PUKE, you may understand what a SHIT STEW, WASHINGTON D.C. is.
Who the FUCK do people like McShitStain think they are?


Yes she also played the crazy tech on 24, its taken 50 years we kid morning jole who replaced Imus, who hadn't killed anyone by accident or on purpose.


If my calculations are correct, Slow Joe Scarred Burro and his DEAD INTERN, bloody, dead, head injury will be investigated in 25 years.
Libs should be ON THE CASE, as Joe is (hahahahahhaahhahahaah) a REPUBLICAN.


It took nearly 50 years and a decade after the lion of the Senate had passed.

She's a mara from the Steelers clan.


Who is a MARA.....Mary Jo Kopechne, or Scarboroughs VICTIM??


The actress gus, who plays Mary jo


Well it looks like he became a dead parrot soon after he returned to beiru

They should try a safe occupation like lion taming.

David J. Kramer was born in Malden, Massachusetts in December 1964. He grew up in Middleborough, Massachusetts where he studied Russian in high school. He was educated at Tufts University, receiving his B.A. in Soviet Studies and Political Science in 1986. His advisor there was Sally Terry. Kramer then went on to get his M.A. in Soviet Studies in 1988 at Harvard University.

In 1983 Kramer and his parents traveled to the Soviet Union to meet a relative who was still living in Latvia [2]. He continued to make trips back to Latvia to visit family starting in 1992.

After university, Kramer was a Lecturer in Russian Studies at Clark University, a Teaching Fellow for Adam Ulam at Harvard University, and a consultant for Arthur D Little in Cambridge, Massachusetts. During the collapse of the Soviet Union, he was an analyst for The Christian Science Monitor Network.

In 1990 Kramer, his brother Mark Kramer, Nicholas Daniloff, Natalie Rumer, and other associates from the Russian Research Center at Harvard opened a consulting business called the Cambridge East-West Consulting Group Inc.[3]. The business did not last long, however. Kramer moved to Washington, D.C., and began working at the Center for Strategic and International Studies for Stephen Sestanovich in 1993, on Ulam's recommendation. He followed Sestanovich to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, becoming Associate Director of the Russian and Eurasian Program there, and setting up the Carnegie Moscow Center.

He worked briefly as a Senior Fellow at the Project for the New American Century, before joining the United States Department of State as Executive Director of the United States Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy in April 2000. He next served as Special Advisor to the Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs Paula Dobriansky, from June 2001 to October 2003. Kramer then became a professional staff member for the Policy Planning Staff. From July 2005 to March 2008, he was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs under Dan Fried. While there Kramer worked on issues related to Belarus, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, and nonproliferation.

In 2008, President of the United States George W. Bush nominated Kramer as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, and, after Senate confirmation, he held this office from March 21, 2008 to January 20, 2009. While there he led the resumption of the human rights dialogue with the Chinese, traveling to Beijing in May 2008. He spent much of his time at this post traveling to places like Hanoi, Vietnam, twice to Ethiopia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Georgia, among others.

Kramer left his position at the State Department during the transition in January 2009, and became a Senior Transatlantic Fellow at the German Marshall Fund. He went on to become executive director of Freedom House on October 4, 2010.[4] On June 18, 2014 Freedom House announced that Kramer planned to resign that fall.[5] On October 1, 2014 Freedom House announced that Mark P. Lagon would replace him in 2015.[6]

In November 2014, Kramer became the Senior Director for Human Rights and Human Freedom[7] at the McCain Institute.[8]

In February 2013, Kramer caused controversy at the North American Invitational Model United Nations, when Kramer's opening keynote speech incited a walkout of 300 Chinese visitors.[9]





JIM, no mention of TED KENNEDY'S wife and CHILDREN.


Ted swam away and did not call the authorities.
I could go on forever, but it's old news.
Bill Clinton blew his wad on a INTERNS dress, as the 23 year old gave him a blow job. He was caught, because the JIPE was still on the dress.

No shots were fired.

No one tried to stop him."

Acc. to the WSJ version of the story some number of Norks crossed into SK territory and were repelled by warning shots.

Dave, I read a "news" story today, that asserted that ROSIE O'BESE's offer wasn't necessarily SERIOUS!!!
I mean, who is to say whether such an offer is SERIOUS or NOT???

GUS | December 21, 2017 at 01:34 AM,

None, but they do get their hands on American dumbasses like Otto Beer Warmer once in a while.


Oh yes, and when NK had our national. What did Obama do?
When Iran had our DRONE on the GROUND. What did Obama do?

I'm a regular guy. In any throwdown or DISPUTE with OBAMA...... I'd kick his tiny balls in. Obama is a PUSSY.


Dave nearly any and every MORON like Warmbier, is a nutty lib. Appeasing NK is how we look weak.
It's obvious to me, that President Trump is ALPHA and our enemies should be AFRAID.

Dave (in MA)


Multiple Dems made Dickensian references to Tiny Tim today, saying of the Republicans things like “Tiny Tim, we’re taking your crutch away from you and all the other kids in this country, and we’re putting a lump of coal into your Christmas stocking.”

Little known fact: Tiny Tim used a crutch because a Democrat shot him at softball practice.

Dave (in MA)

Possible aloha snackbar scenario unfolding Down Under.


Beasts and GUS,
thanks for the heads up on the Producers.

I've been stuck on Pink Floyd for a while, great music, but they all seem to be assholes.

As far as the Producers, I like their sound, very early 80's, I probably listened to them but have forgot. From their video, the keyboard player is a mutant! Lord he looks like a big guy.

 Duda: Progressive and loving it!!

$28 a month! Woooo hooooooo.

I can buy 5 cups of coffee a month!!!!!!



I remember times when 28 dollars a month was the difference between staying afloat and bouncing checks.

Janet 🚬

Little known fact: Tiny Tim used a crutch because a Democrat shot him at softball practice.

Oh my goodness....that is too funny, Dave!


Abadman, it doesn't matter what the party in power does or says. PELOSI and SCHUMER are evil liars.

$28 a month?Stick it!

"I remember times when 28 dollars a month was the difference between staying afloat and bouncing checks"

I'm such an idiot,I literally thought this tax cut was going to put at least $200 a month into me hand.

28 lousy dollars? Fucking $tick it up your ass,Trump! Seriously.


Laura Ingraham reports there will be more McCabe Testimony tomorrow, this new Testimony will be to the Judiciary Committee behind closed doors.



I had a wife and two kids through my last half of medical school. Lunch was Ramen noodles with a can of Tuna Fish thrown in with a Capri sun to wash it down. 28 dollars was a month's worth of lunches.

I still keep a P-38 can opener on my key chain.

when I'm on call supper is still usually a couple cans of tuna and a salad. I'm a creature of habit.


"I'm such an idiot,I literally thought this tax cut was going to put at least $200 a month into me hand."

I"m such an idiot I'd still be grateful for an extra 28 dollars a month

Dave (in MA)

;*) Don't tell anybody, Janet, but I might have made up that last part.

$28 a month?Stick it!

"I"m such an idiot I'd still be grateful for an extra 28 dollars a month"

So would I....if it was 1923.

I bet Mnuchin and Ivanka aren't getting as much as me.I bet they're really jealous of me $28 a month. I bet Ivanaka is kicking herself....that's right,Ivanaka...ole dubby's in the money. That's right Mrs. Mnuchin...you bet on the wrong horse.$28 buys an awful lot of .....5 cups of coffee a month.


"So would I....if it was 1923."

Well then, there you have it. You can't fix stupid.

$28 a month?Stick it!

"I had a wife and two kids through my last half of medical school. Lunch was Ramen noodles with a can of Tuna Fish thrown in with a Capri sun to wash it down. 28 dollars was a month's worth of lunches"

Yeah,you were a tourist in poverty that consoled himself with the fact that one day you'd be driving a BMW and vacationing in Aspen.I'm talking about the people who actually live there and have to eat ramen noodles and tuna for the rest of their lives(and don't give me the rugged individual speech or I'll hit you with the toolbox speech).For those people $28 isn't going to cut it.

Just sayin.

For someone who vacations in Aspen I can understand why you'd being fine with poor working folk only getting $28 a month. That's very big of you.

$28 a month?Stick it!

I'm glad of the $28 a month in the same way I'm glad someone holds the door for me when I'm entering a building. It's nice,it won't have an impact on my life and there-I just forgot about it.

If you can translate that last sentence into votes good luck.


That's quite a Tablet article, exdem.

Yes it is. If we ever do wind up prosecuting these guys it is going to take a real Perry Mason to unweave all the sinister threads of this complex scheme in understandable terms for a Jury.

A white SUV showed no signs of slowing as it mowed down a number of people at the busy intersection..."



Here's something I learned today---Chuck Todd did not graduate from college.

Chuck Todd: Wiki: Todd attended George Washington University from 1990 to 1994. He declared a major in political science and a minor in music, but never graduated.[5]

How about that. Of the guys who sit around all day telling the rest of America who's an expert and who isn't, and what's truth and what ain't, Todd joins a pretty big list of big shots (i.e.)

Brian Williams: Wiki: Williams attended Brookdale Community College, after which he transferred to The Catholic University of America and then The George Washington University.[11] He did not graduate, and instead interned with the administration of President Jimmy Carter. He later called leaving college one of his "great regrets."

Peter Jennings: Wiki: Jennings transferred to Lisgar Collegiate Institute.[3] He struggled academically, and Jennings later surmised that it was out of "pure boredom" that he failed 10th grade and dropped out. "I loved girls," he said. "I loved comic books. And for reasons I don't understand, I was pretty lazy."[4] Jennings then briefly attended Carleton University, where he says he "lasted about 10 minutes" before dropping out.[5] He also attended the University of Ottawa.[6]

Here's a few others: - Brian Williams attended three schools and completed 18 undergraduate credits before working his way to NBC News anchor. Peter Jennings, Walter Cronkite and John Chancellor were also anchors without degrees. And many reporters and columnists never completed college, including Nina Totenberg of NPR, Carl Bernstein of The Washington Post...

I don't care if a guy went to college or not, but I do care if people help create an elitist attitude of looking down their noises at people who didn't graduate while not having done the same themselves.


Duda would prefer that our government overlords continue to forcibly take the $28 per month from the poor working folk and misspend it on whatever they decide is important. As long as they forcibly take more from others. This is called "fairness". If his beloved Dems retake the swamp he can enjoy not having the $28 and having considerably more forcibly taken from him and all the poor working folk (or not working folk, as seems to be the case under Dem rule, since they like to take confiscatory levels of money from people who employ working folk). He seems to think that he would have some sort of choice in the matter. This is called "self-delusion."


Democrats want you to remain in poverty because they want your vote. Democrats can't be offering business incentives to create more and better jobs because that might lift folks out of poverty. Where's their vote for that?


Miss Marple,

How's this for a coincidence, Sundance has found somebody else who's had amnesia---Andrew McCabe:)

“Andy” McCabe’s Transparent Motive For a Lost Dossier Memory….

The Rosen report earlier today -based on investigators within the House Intelligence Committee- states McCabe has lost his memory around the timeline for the FBI’s FISA application and the Christoper Steele Russian Dossier as evidence therein.

Some amnesia's may be more convenient than others though:

If McCabe was aware of the origin, financing and use of the Steele Dossier in obtaining a FISA warrant, his exposure to a criminal conspiracy increases exponentially.


Hey, I'm getting more than $28 per month (which is way over $300 per year) even living in California. I'd get lots more if I was not in a Dem state, tho.

Former Cong. Allen West: "to my 'Coexist' friends":


Funny about McCabe's memory - a FISA request involving a Presidential candidate would likely be the most important thing ever to cross his desk during his entire career. And he can't remember it.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Good morning!

Here's a question I have: why is anyone believing the results of a tax calculator put out by the New York Times or CNN?


Yeah, I wanna see headlines that include "FISA". We deserve to know what happened and who signed off.

daddy your research some hours back on the academic status of prominent Leftie anchors makes me wish there was a conservative Snopes.


MissM, I figure a CNN or Failing Times calculater will be a worst case result. They'll admit to tax reductions only grudgingly. So my real world result is likely better.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


I knew I had run across a connection somewhere.. These are the results I did of a search. All of these articles seem to be from iffy sources though so it may just be rumors accepted as fact by anti-Clinton people.


From WaPo article:

"But here’s the truth: 8 in 10 Americans will pay lower taxes next year, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center’s analysis of the final bill. Only 5 percent of people will pay more next year. Mostly, those are folks who earn six figures and own expensive houses in places with high local taxes, such as New York and California."



Of course later in the article they mention Pelosi and how this bill "polled" badly. Of course no one polled understands what was in the bill (but the MSM says its bad so it must be). The higher paychecks next year will help clear things ups. Then the Wapo concludes with the risk of higher debt. Now they are concerned about debt after the Community Organizer ran up about $10 trillion.

No mention of the other side of lower taxes...increase economic growth. I guess the extra dollars in everyone's pocket, rich or poor, will stay in their pockets?

Sounds like the Dems are excited about running on a winning platform of raising taxes and getting GDP growth down to Obama levels of 1% annually.


Clint is happy (h/t BJG)

Considering the impact on my retirement funds that's already occurred, I'd be thrilled with breaking even on my income taxes. Of course this idiot probably probably hasn't saved for retirement, or has put his money in windmills.

New Englanders and those interested in antiques may find this article of interest. Nutting was the originator of the Colonial Revival in architecture and possibly the reason that people today collect antiques.


If my memory is correct, the Bundy issue is related Harry Reid and his son's activities and not Hillary's uranium activities. The son was a partial investor in a solar energy project requiring land use in an area specifically proscribed from use because it was populated with a breed of protected desert turtle. The son's group would receive the land IF the could provide an alternative habitat. Guess whose land was to be used in the trade? You guessed it - land leased to the Bundy's.

The Massive Tax Cuts, which the Fake News Media is desperate to write badly about so as to please their Democrat bosses, will soon be kicking in and will speak for themselves. Companies are already making big payments to workers. Dems want to raise taxes, hate these big Cuts!

"Of course this idiot probably probably hasn't saved for retirement, or has put his money in windmills"

Retire? What? put on a pink polo shirt and play several rounds of golf before checking out the early bird special-i'd rather put a shotgun in my mouth?

Men do not retire. You work till you die. That's the way of our Grandfathers. You grind on till you've got nothing left.

It's the most influential t.v show because you,our Moron in chief watches it for talking points and policy goals. Fox and friends literally tells you what to think and say,dunce....that's the joke. You're so feeble minded you allow a morning show to tell you what to think.
