Guessing alcohol involved.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Why people think something is going on:


I am not saying this is happening or is correct. The reason I am posting it is because you need to see that people are pouring over schedules and flight records. They are convinced something is happening.

I do not know enough to even begin to say what is real and what is misinterpretation. ChiTown Lurker thinks something is going on as well, so I am not totally batty.

However, if anyone can explain away these flights, I would be grateful. I do not know enough, as I said, to make an intelligent judgement.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Seems like the punishment fit the crime just about perfectly to me.
How many more people was he going to kill before he was done?
Now he is...done, that is.


In Milwaukee, alcohol is part of the background. 99th & Good Hope is close to my office. Around here, the weather people always say to dress warm just in case. Malus it was windy and -12 Dec 30.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Has Appalled checked in for his smelling salts over the boy who cried Wolff?

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

There is something going on MM.

Thanks, Jane!

At least I don't feel crazy.

Time for bed!

Supposed to be going into the low single digits over the next few days up here. Speaking of frozen stuff, today Momma came in from the noon walk and handed me a frozen poop from Nelson in which I could easily spot a half-inch long, flat white Tapeworm. Bummer, but no biggie, so off to the Vet I zoomed with the evidence and the Vet decided to give me 3 big De-wormer pills, one for each Pup, and then she revealed to me that she gives such a pill to each of her pups once each month of winter, since it is so normal for pups in Winter up here to be eating things with Tapeworms such as dead rabbits and other pups frozen droppings


Clarice Feldman

Maybe these are North Korean pups--have you checked their immigration status, daddy?

Ha, Clarice. Well I did go walking in Seoul last week but I didn't get any closer than 5 miles or so of the Border with the Grass-eaters:)


Watching Jim Jordan on Laura Ingraham's Show and she asks, in light of the announcement of the Clinton Foundation being re-scrutinized, if he want's to take back his statement yesterday about having Sessions resigning?

Jordan gives great credit to Chairman Nunes for being so dogged on this, and says that if there is real movement from Sessions on some of these key questions that he grilled Sessions on when Sessions last testified before him, then he is fine with Sessions staying as Atty General, but if he does not follow thru seriously then Session's needs to resign and let somebody get in there who will get to the bottom of this.

Jordan also said something I had not heard before---that Lisa Page left the Investigative side of the house 2 weeks before the revelations came out about her affair with Strzok and Jordan wants to know why? I want a cup of whatever coffee Jim Jordan drinks! Man, is that guy energetic:)

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Levin is on fire tonight as everything he claimed in March confirming that DJT had been under surveillance is being revealed and he wants "the conga line of freaks" on MSNBC who ridiculed him to eat a multi course meal of crow. I want that mentally unstable bitch, Martha Radditz, to just break down sobbing uncontrollably on the air. It wouldn't be the most unprofessional thing she's done.


Lou Dobbs follows and opens with Congressman Matt Goetz, (R-Fl) giving his opinion of McCabe

Lou: ...Let's start with the most recent development and that is the referral by Grassley and Graham for a criminal investigation by the Justice department...your reaction?

Matt Gaetz: (R-Fl) Bravo to Senators Grassley and Graham by highlighting the real crimes by the real criminals in this case. The only evidence we have of collusion with the Russian Federation is the evidence that the DNC paid the FUSION/GPS company to pay Russians to tell lies about the President Elect of the United States. I am glad to see that Grassley and Graham understand the importance of the collusion between Russians and Democrats...We had an interview of Andrew McCabe, under Oath, sworn Testimony, and within hours of that Testimony he announced his retirement. I think one of the reasons may be the inconsistencies in his Testimony.


Potus sugar-coating things again ;-)


Captain Hate

Levin: why aren't the FISA judges not furious at having been manipulated?


my gosh this is a hellzapoppin week

I'm laying odds 2 to 1, we see that term hellzapoppin showing up somewhere else this weekend. No offense, but it's too good a word to waste simply on this audience.


Meanwhile in district 7



If Trump keeps this up Sloppy Steve will have nothing to lose by saying whatever he wants to about Trump. And anywhere between 1/3 & 2/3 of the voters will soak it up like a sponge.

Seems like a hell of a bad way to go into the primaries.

Usually when a leftist has a fit like Trump is having we celebrate by saying "must be over target."

I am worried about this mess.


Tk the time to refudiate has passed, so we are apposed to believe everything happened by dumb luck, unlikely.


Levin: why aren't the FISA judges not furious at having been manipulated?

The guy who recused himself was probably in on the fix.

And reading about the Judge in the Awan/DWS case linked earlier is awfully depressing.


What conservative principle is he standing up for, heck when he spoke to kuttner he was evincing concern for working class interests.
We see none of that here.


for those who, like me, haven't read and won't be reading the Wolff book, here's an - apparently- typical passage:


good grief

I would think they were limited and transactional, and since they all continued to lie anyway, the agreements could be rescinded. Anyways since the Clinton Foundation is an ongoing criminal conspiracy their uncharged bad acts can go to motive and means for current bad acts.

Because they got nothing else papafop trading highballs with the John Kerry down under, means Jack squat.


Regarding that excerpt from the new book, it is no wonder that the left is salivating. That one excerpt touches on all the things that they want to believe about DJT.

He is a rich, stupid, gross and ignorant person. It is like you take the stuff of the Dossier and blew it up a thousand-fold but instead of coming from the Russians it is from DJT's staff.

I have put myself in a bubble and have avoided all the Bannon and Wolff fan fic ... except reading about it here. Big surprise ... attached and marginally attached people would cash in,in popular culture, on one of the more unexpected political events in US history.

The Wolff could have written that The_Donald had an affair with Batwoman and that Batboy was his love child and the clapping seals at CNNMSNBCWAPONYT would have fired up the presses.

Maybe even got one of the Sasquatch hunters to get some photos of The_Donald and Batboy together.

There is something going on MM.

I thought the offshore leasing proposal was a big deal. The W administration prattled on about it and the Zero administration was too sold out to envirowackos to do it.

and here we are.

and that fat tube of goo, The Climate Ayatollah alGore, may his blubber heat a billion homes (or at least my room), needs to shut his piehole so we can warm up.


where's Appalled? I need someone to kick.


what are the betting odds when the Clinton Foundation closes down?

3 months?

30 days?


maybe some prop bets?

loot the Clintons carried off?


Make Virgina Hot Again!


it is all of 9 degrees outside.

alGore can spare some of his blubber to warm up Fairfax County.



Didn't you hear? alGore and Hockey StickMann told that we extreme cold is part of Globullwarming. This is the new normal, as some would say.


that's crap Bori.

many pounds of blubber between The Two Towers of Climate Change to warm the earth ... hell they could restart a cold dead star with the nuclear fuel they carry around their waists.

... at least keep the fires burning in Mordor or the cold outskits of DC ...

...skinflints is what they are ... it is a cold day in hell and they can't spare any-ANY-of their blubber.


on that note I'm calling it a night ... early morning ... whatever.


-9F in Minnyapolis but it's suppose to warm up to 10F later and OMG above 20F next week. I appreciate that DJT fixed globall warming. Now I am looking forward to the tax cut of of warmer weather coming our way.

I am still munching my way through MM's link to Mar-a-Lago she posted before Christmas. Wow, whatta place. The scrollbar sez I'm less than 1/3 of the way through but who knows, maybe I'll hit comments in the next scroll and game over.



Regarding exdemocrat's eggsurp from the book, "good grief" covers it. Democrats will get lots of literary tapeworms out of that munch. The worms will be in their reporting poop for months.


Good point, rich! Pelosi will likely argue that full employment for glaziers fixing windows broken by them is a yuge addition to the GDP for example

No problem Captain Haiku, especially since when the Market opens on Monday, like Trump, I now have the Gorilla Channel!


Here's Larry Kudlow's Economic take on Steve Bannon: Bannon Goes Belly-Up and the Stock Market Soars

But Bannon was never a strong advocate of the Trump tax-cut plan. Instead, he wanted to raise income taxes for successful earners, from 40 to 44 percent.

Steve Moore, Art Laffer, and I had numerous conversations with Bannon, trying to talk him out of this. President Trump, we argued, would end Obama’s wars on success and business with policies that generate faster economic growth...

...Late one afternoon, Steve Bannon tried to make a deal with Steve Moore and me in his office: “If you guys back my 44 percent top tax rate, I’ll support your 15 percent corporate tax rate.” We wouldn’t buy it. It made no economic-growth sense.

Over to JimmyK.


Lou Dobb's replay tonight with Judicial Watch's Chris Farrell, start off discussing the 18 reported Classified E-Mails found on Weiner's Laptop:

Lou: ...identifying at least 18 Classified E-mails found on Anthony Weiner's laptop...Now when we talk about Classified, these are not "Up-Classified" documents, these were in fact Classified at the time they were transacting the E-Mail server of Mrs Clinton at home.

Chris Farrell: Thanks Lou. It is very important that that distinction be made. These records of documents were Classified at the time that they were produced and transmitted. They are not 'so called' "retroactively Classified."That is a smoke screen and a red herring. They were Classified when they were written. They were Classified when they were transmitted, and they were Classified when they were resident on the Weiner laptop.

Lou: And the FBI Investigators presumably knew that,did they not? The just did;t share that with the Public.

Farrell: Absolutely. And I may be jumping ahead here...but we have a Sworn Declaration from David Hardee, who is the Chief FOIA Officer of the FBI, and we obtained this in the last few days, and in that Sworn Declaration Mr Hardee says that all of Comey's Memo's, all of them, were Classified at the time they were written, and they remain Classified. So the kind of open question for Mr Grassley, is it 4 of 7, or what time were (they Classified?) No. We have a Sworn Declaration. They were Classified at the time that Comey wrote them...it is a mishandling of National Defense Information which is a crime. So it is clear that Mr Comey not only authored those documents, but then knowingly and willingly leaked them to persons unauthorized. That is in and of itself a National Security Crime.

Lou: He has not yet been read his Rights. Who would be the charging party? Would it be the FBI itself?

Farrell: Or the Attorney General of the United States, and the DOJ would actually bring an indictment once they impanel a Grand Jury, but the Investigative process of course would be conducted by the FBI.


daddy, if anything the tax cuts aren't big enough for the middle class. Bannon doesn't have a fraction of Trump's ability to read people

It sounds like the WH was chaotic while Bannon was there. Good riddance.


janet raised the issue on a previous thread about who published the wolff book. henry holt is now a wholly owned sub of macmillan, which is in the famous flatiron building in NYC. Macmillan in turn is owned by what appears to be a german company.

merkel's revenge?

I had looked that up yesterday as who publishes and who they are financed by is frequently quite relevant.

In case anyone doubts what a presidential visit does to an already ultrahyped game, heard the ss was trying to secure 200 rooms this weekend in the dt area near the MB stadium. Apparently not available.

Also even vips in corporate suites are being told to be at the stadium by mid-afternoon. Only the teetotalers will not be drunk by gametime in other words.

When its all said and done, I really think the Democrats will wish they had just taken their lumps in the election and just been honest they lost because they had such a horrible candidate.

Are there any Democrats left with enough self-awareness (or just plain sanity) to come to that conclusion?

I see no evidence of that.

Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence.....

...Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star.....

....to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!
Well, that should get everyone going this morning. LOL!

Like a laser pointer to the MFM kittens. They're such easy marks and too stupid to realize how ignorant they look. I've never enjoyed politics as much as in the last year. It's like your father's Oldsmobile has been replaced by a barely street legal hemi Challenger. How's my dust taste?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

I am exactly the same way. How many years have we sat through boring press conferences, meek compromises, focus group-inspired speeches? Way too many.

I love this. And the tit-tutting has already started by the political commentators on Twitter. I am telling them to get a sense of humor.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

The sad thing is, compared to the imbeciles he's constantly trolling he is a genius.
And compared to half the people nominally on his side who are in despair over his trolling he's incomprehensible.

Clinton demanded a tiny motorcade to secretly dash around Washington unnoticed (to meet with his extra marital sex partners), ordering that the cars try to obey laws like stopped lights.
And in one of those motorcades, an unnamed Uniform Division officer trying to keep up ran a red light and was T-boned in an intersection, suffering a traumatic brain injury.
Identified only as “Reverend,” Byrne wrote that the driver and two others were injured and that the rest of Clinton’s motorcade drove on, leaving D.C. Police to clean up the mess.

MM, I have mentioned before that my house is beneath the path helicopters us as they fly from the WH/Pentagon to Camp David. When POTUS is involved, the flights are alway 3-5 helicopters.

It was a VERY noisy night at the Lurker house.

Something is indeed brewing and whatever it is, I am going to like it.

But cynic that I remain, I refuse to get too far over my skis dreaming that any specific prediction of finality (the IG Report eg) will accomplish what the optimists hope hope hope they will accomplish.

Ild Lurker,

Last night someone said there was a closed-door meeting last night at Camp David with Sessions, Nunes, Wray, and Rosenstein (and the President and VP).

I do not know where that person got the info nor if it was true. Scanning Twitter for information gives me an appreciation of what intelligence analysts do.

I am interested in why President Trump decided to attend that football game which he normally doesn't show much interest in and the debut of his Fake News awards prior to the game.

We certainly will not be bored with this presidency, that is for sure!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

You sillies.
All those choppers mean Trump is resigning in the face of Pence's invocation of the 25th amendment who he will then be impeached and Nancy Pelosi appointed President by Sasha Obama.
I wish that wasn't a direct quote from hundreds of comment sections over the last year.
