In other words, Bongino is plagiarizing the "leverage" narrative that Sundance first posited that treats their assumptions as facts to explain why Trump hasn't fired Rosenstein yet.

This is why the comment counters don't want you to engage me.

If you want your own "in other words" listen to Bongino yourself instead of trying to attribute tripe to my words.

Actually, he cited an American Thinker piece, I forget by whom.

TK "I had one car fail a draw test because of a broken switch to the glovebox light. The light stayed on with the door closed."

Get serious, Man. Next thing you are going to say is that the little light goes off when you close the refrigerator door.

It never went anywhere. The tow guy said it was a loose battery, he tightened it and it started up, son let it run for about 15 minutes and we thought everything was ok.

Ahhh. Let me know what the shop says if you have any questions.

It is a fact the Mueller and Rosenstein are corrupt.

I posted the 3:23 as a funny without thinking.

Then I recalled that my brother bought one of those high dollar refrigerators, you know the ones, and after a week or so it would not keep the milk cold enough or something. Repairmen came two or three times making adjustments, but each time the milk was still not cold enough, and he, lacking the patience you know I possess, was about to demand a new appliance or his money. The last service guy found that the light was NOT going off, bad switch, and now he has cold milk.

I was only commenting on Bongino's narrative. No legit reason for you to get offended over it.

If Romney isn’t sitting in on the daily intelligence briefings, he has no business adviding Trump what he should or shouldn’t do. In fact what Romney is doing is reckless behavior and could well be against our national interests. That he would do such a thing is indicative of what a shitty president he would have been and what a shitty senator he’s going to be.

I see nothing about Romney anywhere. Where are you guys getting all this info?

I'm never offended when you misstate things, Tom. I just get exhausted when the comment counters skip over it to proclaim how friendly the blog used to be.

Your misstatement opens that door. Try to leave me out of it.

Romney is just confirming he is a tool of the Uniparty Establishment and repeats whatever talking points they provide to him.

You have been defending Mueller and Rosenstein from the very begining.

The facts show that both of the them have been and are corrupt.

Why do you ask for facts if you are going to ignore them?

Dear congressional virtue signalers:
Please stop pretending like you’re going to throw the Middle East into total chaos, spike the price of oil to $300 a barrel, throw a $150 billion dollar arms deal in the trash, and throw the world into a recession and Americans out of work... all because Saudi Arabia assassinated a Muslim Brotherhood propagandist masquerading as a journalist.
Please stop pretending that you are SHOCKED that Saudi Arabia isn’t an enlightened Jeffersonian Democracy. News Flash: They kill off their internal critics as casually as you pour your Corn Flakes in the morning, and they’ve been doing it for decades. So have other regimes around the world that we do business with every day, including Turkey, China, Russia, and others.
Khashoggi, who is not a US citizen, isn’t special just because the Washington Post made the mistake of hiring him, and no US citizen should pay the price for that.

Tom R

TK,

When I make a misstatement I will make sure and let you know so you can increase your Win/Loss record by one.

In the meantime I'll stick with my accurate statement that Bongino is plagiarizing the "leverage" narrative that Sundance first posited (and multiple pundits have since repeated).

Have a MAGA day.

Jim Eagle

Soros/Styer Limited, couldn't stick a shiv in Trump & Team over Kavanaugh, and now they think Khashoggi will be the winner. Since they have the MSM on their side, and no one gives a fat f**k about Benghazi as an allegory, then this will not go away until, either Trump sanctions SA (ain't going to happen) or Trump unleashes his Queen's Army of Insults.

We are now thinking because CP Mo let women drive, the Sand Box is the mirror image of 1776. Unbelievable, and another indictment of our higer education producing idiots instead of critical thinkers.

Jim Eagle

That professor would end up with broken fingers if he ever did that to my salad or even Mrs. JiB's. What a maroon.

I am confident Bongino is on the MAGA team but he is also a Fox contributor and all the pro-Trump Fox contributors appear to be in lockstep promoting the same narrative about Rosenstein. That causes me to assume they are all being provided with a specific set of talking points to repeat.

Eye Doctor .

Yeah Tommy boy

It could not possibly be because everyone knows Rosenstein is corrupt could it?

No you would rather malign anyone that states the obvious truth about Rosenstein.

You truly are a jackass.

Car update.

The nice tow truck guy again came and started it with his jump box. The battery strap was broken ( which my son forgot to tell me) so the battery has been rattling around on its base for who knows how long. It is a miracle it didn't die on me when I was driving out to the airport!

Anyway, I took it to the garage my sister uses which is about 5 miles south of here. My neighbor's boyfriend followed me and brought me home.

So right now we have one operational car until I get mine back or my son gets his running. However, at least I am getting something fixed!

Oh, and the tow guy didn't charge me this time, either! There are really nice people in this world!

That is a good option, henry. Especially in your cold country.

I worked briefly for a farmer's COOP one spring many years ago. They had an auto shop and one of the guys was adding water to a battery without PPE and he got acid in one of his eyes. I guess they called him Blinkey after that.

In chemistry was it never add water to acid or always add acid to water? Never do anything without eye protection. That much I remember.

A long time ago now too, my battery died. I pulled it out and carried it and my daughter and walked my son to Auto Zone and bought a new one. Repeat in reverse. They never pick the optimum time to go to heck.

@Neo - Scott Wallace not Bob Wallace. He is the grandson of Henry Wallace who was VP during Roosevelt's third term. At least a socialist and some said a Communist.

When Roosevelt decided to run for a fourth term (as if there was ever any doubt), the first order of business was to get Henry Wallace off the ticket. That's how Harry Truman eventually became President.

Kristen Bell says ‘Snow White’ kiss sends controversial message about consent

“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission? Because you cannot kiss someone if they’re sleeping!” she told the magazine.

Kelly, Bolton get into obscenity-laced shouting match outside Oval Office

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton got into a heated argument Thursday outside the Oval Office, according to multiple reports.

The obscenity-laced shouting match between the two men was over the recent surge in illegal border crossings, according to CNN.

The fiery exchange had some White House aides worried that one of the men would resign. But officials insisted that neither was quitting, Bloomberg reported.

It was unclear if President Trump heard the ruckus outside the Oval Office.

Mexican Riot Cops Deployed For Caravan Showdown After Trump Snaps Fingers

Hundreds of federal police in riot gear fanned out on the international bridge in Suchiate, on the Mexican-Guatemalan border, as the caravan of several thousand Honduran migrants trekked toward the crossing.

Guatemala also sent police reinforcements to its side of the border, after Trump threatened to cut aid to the region, deploy the military and close the US-Mexican border if the migrants were allowed to continue.

A first group of several hundred migrants arrived late Wednesday in the border town of Tecun Uman, Guatemala, where they overflowed a local shelter, leaving many to sleep in the town square or on the street, an AFP correspondent said. -AFP

“Every time we close Snow White I look at my girls and ask, ‘Don’t you think it’s weird that Snow White didn’t ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple? Or where she got that apple?’ I say, ‘I would never take food from a stranger, would you?’ And my kids are like, ‘No!’ And I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m doing something right,'” Bell said.

She’s not the only actress who’s questioning Disney movies. Keira Knightley recently told Ellen DeGeneres that her 3-year-old daughter, Edie, is “banned” from watching “Cinderella” and “The Little Mermaid.”

The 33-year-old actress said the 1950s Cinderella character “waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t! Rescue yourself. Obviously!”

And when it came to “The Little Mermaid,” Knightley questioned the film’s message about relying on a “prince charming.”

“And this is the one that I’m quite annoyed about because I really like the film, but ‘Little Mermaid,’” she said. “I mean, the songs are great, but do not give your voice up for a man. Hello.”

Freedom Caucus Demands Rosenstein Resign 'Immediately'

“I think at this particular point, Rod Rosenstien’s priorities are misplaced,” Meadows told reporters, The Hill reported. “His unwillingness to come before Congress and allow us to conduct proper congressional oversight, along with the other information that we’ve learned over the last week or so, would indicate that Rod Rosenstein has not displayed the candor of which would support one’s theory of actually believing that he has been open and honest in all regards.”

"So with that, I think that it’s time that Rod Rosenstein steps down,” he added. “He should do so immediately and in doing that, I think it would serve the country well, it would serve this president well.”

Democratic victory in November would put Trump under microscope

WASHINGTON, Oct 18 (Reuters) - If Democrats win control of the U.S. House of Representatives or Senate next month, nearly every aspect of Donald Trump's presidency could face swift examination – from his long-elusive tax returns to possible business ties with Russia and conflicts of interest, congressional sources say.

[Er, those are "aspects of his presidency"?]

While numerous probes have been expected if Democrats win a majority in the Nov. 6 elections, the sequencing and scope of their inquiries has only begun to emerge in recent talks among party leaders and prospective committee chairs.

Leaders are clear about what's not on the agenda: impeachment of Trump – at least until the outcome of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections and possible Trump campaign collusion with Moscow.

[Sure they are.]

But congressional aides say Democrats would move quickly to obtain Trump's tax returns to look for business ties to Russia and possible conflicts with the Republican president, his family businesses and U.S. government interests, along with a possible examination of his handling of security clearances.

The House is able to access tax returns of citizens they don't like? Why haven't they been doing that for past two years? Not who we are?
