Scooter Libby is a good, honorable and innocent man who was the victim of prosecutorial misconduct and a miscarriage of justice. Thank you @realDonaldTrump for righting a terrible wrong and delivering the full pardon Scooter deserved.

(Under her breath) "And F-U, George W. Bush!"

Well, at least Republicans aren't the only ones trying to eat their own: California Progressives Target Feinstein With Full-on Assault Ahead of Dem Primary. Good luck!

Yeah, it seems to be a Free Beacon kind of day here. I intended to be outside walking about, but am awaiting the arrival of a repairman instead….

Tom Fitton asks an important question.

By the way, I have noticed The Hill publishing more and more op-eds from our side. Very interesting development.

Tom R

Tom R, my over-the-top wishful thinking centers on Carter Page as (first and foremost) a Defense Intelligence asset and only secondarily someone the FBI has made use of. But, yes, if this can loop back to the craziness of that whole Valerie Plame nonsense -- heavenly.

FWIW I always operate under the assumption that the current "Deep State" cabal traces its existence back to the Soviet moles who successfully infiltrated the Federal government and who Senator McCarthy was trying to expose until they destroyed him. For me at least that makes it easier to process why they have been actively trying to destroy the country from within for the past several decades. See the discussion on evil from yesterday by several posters.

It's fairly obvious the Deep State is very good at covering its tracks. I have no idea what kind of document or digital trail of their activities may be in existence. If a trail of evidence does exist, IMO the Trump presidency is likely our best and last chance of fully exposing their criminal misdeeds.

Trump obviously had an ulterior motive for bringing up the Libby pardon at this specific moment in time. While it could be a warning shot over the bow about prosecutorial overreach by the SC, if it was somehow connected to exposing the Plame/Wilson/Grossman Deep State corruption a tingle would run up my leg for an extended period of time.


I wonder if this has anything to do with Rod's White
House meeting this week?
Michael Walsh
'Here I Stand' Or There He Goes? All roads lead to Rod Rosenstein.

As James Comey steps with both his left feet right into his Oscar Wilde moment, another player in the preening emotional drama that is the Mueller investigation has also taken the stage. Starring the role of Drama Queen today is none other than deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, the man to whom all roads lead in the current mess. Forget the weepy, creepy Jim Comey -- if this were a Hercule Poirot story, the Belgian dandy would even now be waxing the tips of his moustaches and getting ready to enter the drawing room at Main Justice, his j'accuse at the ready.

Consider this news -- or should I say, strategic pre-emptive leak:

Look at this asshole (sorry, but that is the operative word as far as I am concerned):

So Scooter Libby lied and leaked. Gets pardoned. Trump says Comey lied and leaked and should be prosecuted. That’s Trump’s vision of law and order. And Trump supporters aren’t going to call this what it is?


Nice job, Boris!


Hi, MarkO!! Good to see you.


Apparently Comey has, er, issues. I mean, wouldn't an average 6'8" dude's hand be bigger than most people's?

Upon meeting the new President, the first thing that comes to his mind is to wonder about dick sizes? And he actually publishes that weirdness in a book?

He seems effeminate, too. Who's in on the pool for when he comes out as gay? (NTTAWWT.)

Tom R.,

Donald Trump has known the Saudi royal family since 1980. I just was made aware of this a couple of nights ago when Tom Wictor produced an old clipping from a newspaper. I wonder how much he has learned from Saudi intelligence?

It's not inconceivable to me that Trump began to learn about some of these creeps during his construction of hotels and resorts. Of course he ran into them at parties, too, listening in as a sober guy while people drank and did cocaine.

How much did he learn from his hotel staff? How much did he hear while he was shooting in Hollywood?

It's like he was created specifically for such a time as this.

Miss Marple:

Here's a story from ABC on the Backpage deal, via Instapundit. The WaPo may have it, but I sure couldn't find it there.


If there's a new thread, let it be a Scooter retro thread

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Boy, things are happening all over the place!

THIS thread details Noah Rothman's adventures with a PORN STAR when he was an intern on Opie and Anthony's show!

My former boss Robert Novak thought that Scooter Libby should have been pardoned.

"I don’t see how you can have obstruction of justice when there is no underlying crime.”


As I left my hiding place behind the curtains, the President noticed me. He dazzling blue eyes glistening in the bright lights of the White House.
I knew at that moment, that we had made a CONNECTION. I made a mental note, to buy a TRUMP tie tomorrow at a yard sale in Bethesda. I wanted to hug him, but thought that would be innapropriate for a sexually confused 6'9" F.B.I. director, so I put my personal feelings aside and just held his (smaller than mine) hand tightly for several seconds. He got the message.........

Hi Marko!
So great to see you!
TK thought you were in exile.


Yay! Mark has returned. Lock the door so he can't get out!


JimNor Cal;
I second the motion for a retro Scooter thread!

Pls notice every damn report on the pardon misrepresents the underlying case.

**Any resemblance to the truth?NO


Noah Rothman was on Tucker and made a fool out of himself.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


You and I are on the same page. I posted that just a bit before you. I also told Gregory on Twitter that Armitage was the leaker and he should read up on the case.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


This is the Press Release from the White House about the pardon and why.


sbw, that's a very good question and I can only speculate that the rebel forces, Jaish al-Islam, have obtained some of Assad's stash and used it to frame him. Just a guess.

I've read reports that Syria has agreed to allow inspections but critics claim Syria always waits until the affects of the chlorine gas have dissipated.

Assad had won, we were leaving, now we're on the brink of war with Russia, China and Iran. It doesn't make sense to me.


IG Report released to Congress today.
So far only part McCabe played in this act of sedition.

Captain Hate

Monkey Boy must be trying to make F Chuck look smart.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I found the link on the WaPo story through their Twitter feed:



I am going to wait and see about Syria.
I need more verified information.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

My theory on Syria boils down to this: anytime Lindsey Graham and Hillary Clinton are shouting "Bombs away!" I think it's a good idea to pause and ask what in the heck is going on.


Assad had won, we were leaving, now we're on the brink of war with Russia, China and Iran. It doesn't make sense to me

I do not believe we are on that brink. It’s too bad you think so.

You also do not suggest a plausible alternative to marshaling a substantial coalition to do something.

That something, by the way, could be to have the Gulf Cooperation Council smear vaseline on Assad’s toilet seat.


As I recall,wasn’t Monkey Boy one of the surprised reporters with Andrea Mitchell who acted all innocent about knowing the true leaker?


Scooter thread.

David "SUG" Gregory spokesmodel.

Hitler ate oatmeal and killed 6 million Jews.
Trump ate oatmeal and hate children.

Shouldn't Trump put a bullet in his own brain too???

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Christian traditionalism!! OMG! How creepy!

his is another publication that won't ever get a nickle from me.


Saw several CFAs in midtown on my spring break trip. We ate at one - it was cold and raining and the kids wanted a taste of home. As always, the service and food were great. I love that their success triggers the left.

clarice feldman

Yes, maryrose. Do you remember him saying "what one of us knew, all of us knew"? Do you doubt Andrea's BFF Powell didn't tell her and that Russert, and Gregory were cued in?
