Bunky is now Savotage!!!

IIRC Trump called Rubio a "chocker" in a 2016 campaign tweet.

The press went wild even after he corrected it.

My guess is he misspelled it on purpose and highlighted it to cause 4D* media spasms.

*IMO a single spontaneous move that the media doesn't recognize for what it is can be honestly considered 4D just for the amusement value.

Threadkiller

Wrong thread. :-/

I blame it on automistake. Did they have the cob do an estimate.

Threadkiller

My guess is that the fact-checkers will see that Trump correctly blamed the DC Cabal so the parade subject will be dropped quickly.

Just maybe. If Musk had built his company on solid economics and "bidness stuff" instead of upon Stardom, Cronyism, Rent Seeking and Lefty Pals, there might be an underpinning of real, you know, economic value to the company he has which might have carried it through the rough times of one individual.

Is Trump in JiB's neighborhood this morning?

Beasts,

He is at Howard Lorber's place on Halsey Neck Lane for lunch. State Police and Village police had the cattle fence already up on the corner. A mom and her two young sons in MAGA gear and Old Glory were there when I drove down Hill Street to Enstines for gas at 0930. But I also saw some nasties walking down Hill St. with Perry Gershon for Congres signs. He's the billionaire Prog challenging Zeldin.

Lorber is chairman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. I think they are blocking Halsey Neck off completely. Maybe even Hill Street. If they do that then we will reach traffic hell since its a Friday.

I think the roundtable is on the Opiod crisis. He flies into Grabreski Airport at noon, I believe.

A study shows Gender/ethnic studies professors make more money than professors of traditional academic disciplines. The irony is that while that discipline is financially advantageous for the professors, unfortunately the students can look forward to a career as a barista at Starbucks.

In speaking with some of the world’s top business leaders I asked what it is that would make business (jobs) even better in the U.S. “Stop quarterly reporting & go to a six month system,” said one. That would allow greater flexibility & save money. I have asked the SEC to study!

Very encourageing to read this via a Miss M link. I have to think this is part of the benefit of President Trump meeting with my boss Fred Smith at least twice this month. What an obviously smart thing for an American President to do. The contrast between Trump and the Left couldn't be starker. Trump wants to help business, Liz Waren wants to cripple it. MAGA!

I went to sleep last night thinking Mueller must feel like a caged rat now that all this stuff is coming out about Ohr and Strozk and everyone else. It's got to be getting a little hard to ignore, since it's all about Russian collusion and he's got nuttin'.

If I were him I'd be thinking about an escape.

Does "the nonbinding resolution (sponsored by 2 Dems) passed with unanimous consent" mean there was no vote taken, making it a meaningless Dem publicity stunt?

It is a uniparty stunt. Just like before:

S.Res. 511 (110th): A resolution recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.

The resolution was passed in a vote in the Senate. A simple resolution is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law. The vote was by Unanimous Consent so no record of individual votes was made.

DOJ's Bruce Ohr wrote Christopher Steele was 'very concerned about Comey's firing -- afraid they will be exposed'

Ohr wrote that Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy who wrote the salacious dossier, was "very concerned (abt) about [former FBI Director James] Comey's firing -- afraid they will be exposed."

Since Ohr wrote this about what Steele said, who's "they"? If it were about Steele and Ohr, he'd have written "we".

I think what we really need is one of those connect the dots blackboards with news articles, photos, booking reports, etc sort of like they did in Blacklist or the Sherlock Holmes movie or even Woody Harrellson in "2012".

Start connecting the dots for these idiots who now think McCain and Brennan are destined for sainthood.

BLM was built on lies. #Resistance is built on lies. And #MeToo sort of takes down the whole edifice of hypocrisy. A lot of these clowns were so busy trying to schtupp underlings and co-workers they stepped all over their you know whats.

It was Ohr in the library with the dossier.

Jane

Daddy,

The evidence against his team just keeps getting worse. Now we know Strozk was in Boston with h Mueller to help him put all those guys in jail who were innocent.

His entire team was colluding with Russia in an attempt to get Trump. That's all pretty much out there now and Mueller has to know it.

Kevlar Kid

Mueller is being paid handsomely to feed the full court press by the Lying Swine media.

There is no consequence to him for when he does fold up his Kangaroo farm. It's a rear guard action that insulates the Cabal so it can fight another day should the Dhimmicrats "take power" again.

btw, i can't recall the R's of any stripe calling Trump's election as having anything to do with "taking power."

Kevlar Kid

Jane-

You're a moral woman. Big diff.

Sure, he might be finished as a loia.

But he lives in the trappings of empire, within an insulated circle who are the only ones who matter to him. I know people he knows (social intros only)throughout Virginia. All of them are former muckty mucks in the Bureau, DOJ, NSA et alia.

Far wealthier than their government careers paid them---- all connected to Big Techs currently running amok. Mueller is a "good soldier."

Let me rephrase "no consequence" to if he has any moral conscience at all he'll ponder WHY he made such a Faustian bargain back when he began guarding the "FBI Stables" a way back when.

Otherwise,i am certain he's styling himself as a patriot--- like the insane Strozk.

I fully take your point on this. You're in that legal universe. I'm not. :D

But his conduct as a political commentator now seems lost in a zero sum game in a contest he cant win.

POTUS will be judged by history and therefore has not the shelf-life of a mere mortal. i will go so far as to say POTUS may well become the most studied presidency in our very short history--- especially if this Ship of State executes the mutineers and turns away from the Reef of Tyranny.

The worst thing that happened to Musk was getting deep into free money from taxpayers long before he ever learned how hard it is to get "real" money out of the pockets of "rightful owners" thereof. Add to that the predictable adulation from credentialed morons (who took his grifting as his gift), and you have the making of the ruination of a very bright and creative mind who "coulda been a contender".

I hate to use the word traitor on someone but John Brennan comes close. As CIA director he manipulated the FBI and it’s dumbass director Comey into starting a probe on Trump/Russia after Bill Clinton asked him to and based on Clinton campaign-manufactured BS about Trump. The entire Clinton/Obama circle then used this falsely begun, made up probe to lie to a federal judge and try to steal the election. This is the guy, along with Bill Clinton, who should be investigated and thrown in jail, though I’d be happy to just not have to ever see or read about him ever again.

The most amazing thing in all of this however is not his/their malicious and dishonest behavior- it’s that some people out there still believe him, Comey, and the rest of this vile group of “Americans.”

stuck on stupid

Conjecture on my part, but how did they get the OHR Steele e-mails. If Nellie went out of her way to get a ham radio to avoid detection I do not think that Bruce would be stupid enough to use his e-mail address to communicate with Steele especially since Steele's association with the FBI was terminated on November 1, 2016. Thus Steele and OHR were communicating via a personal e-mail account that Ohr set up.

They most probably got these e-mails from monitoring Steele not OHr That will also suggest that other individuals like Senator Warner and Attorney Waldman correspondence were captured in monitoring Steele. That is likely why the Senate Intelligence committee has been silenced and Burr's statement on Brennan.

Also part of the reason of having Mueller and the special counsel was to get the coup plotters and the bad apples in DOJ exposed. Recall that Weissman was conducting briefing sessions with journalist in April 2018 . Why not let this be shipped to special counsel and the back biting exposed for what it is rather than Weissman Comey and Mccabe running loose like they were at beginning of the Trump administration.

KK I meant that Trump disposes of individuals who are not on the Trump train and only uses the ones who are not for specific purposes. Hence the departure of McMaster, Gary Cohen and Dina Powell. Trump used Cohen beautifully to get corporate America to announce the Christmas bonuses with GOP tax cut. After that Cohen was discarded. Pompeo was doing all the lifting while McMaster was there.

Also surprised that we have not heard Cohen Watnick name pop up lately. Guess what he is national security advisor to Jeff Sessions. How do you think the Ohr Steele correspondences are getting leaked.
