TGIF?

I found this rather amusing, specially in light of the recent NYT op-ed about the "inevitable" POTUS impeachment. (Oh, googling it for a link shows me Chuck Todd, Martha Radditz, and a host of others quoted saying it as well! Imagine that---same story, different propagandists.)
From Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of GHWB by John Meacham:

On the evening of Saturday, December 6, 1941, Claude Fuesse (Andover headmaster during GHWB's student days) and his wife were guests at a dinner party in Boston. Over cigars, a man Fuesse recalled as "a high-ranking officer in the Navy" spoke confidentially of American superiority in the Pacific. "It would be impossible for the Japanese to accomplish anything in the Pacific," the officer said. The others in the room--A Harvard Law School professor, an industrialist, and the host, "a well-informed attorney, agreed."


And we know the rest of that story.
I'm guessing they were all "well informed" readers of NYT.

from above:

Was Cohen in Prague in the summer of 2016, after all? I don’t know. However, Cohen, who has turned decisively against Trump, still insists he wasn’t in Prague. Today, he tweeted:

I hear #Prague #CzechRepublic is beautiful in the summertime. I wouldn’t know as I have never been. #Mueller knows everything!

The last sentence of the tweet seems telling. As Chuck Ross points out, Cohen has pleaded guilty not just to supposed campaign finance violations, but also to lying to Congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. However, Cohen did not admit to lying to Congress when he denied claims made in the Steele dossier.

The false 'Cohen in Prague' claim was a dangerous mistake by the coup plotters.

It ties the phony dossier to the Obama administration .... spying on & unmasking American citizens.

They were searching for gotcha dirt on 'Michael Cohen' & got the wrong one.

From the prev thread,
Posted by: daddy | December 28, 2018 at 03:19 AM
daddy links to a story about Judith Curry.
"In her latest paper, Ms. Curry found that the current rising sea levels are not abnormal, nor can they be pinned on human-caused climate change, arguing that the oceans have been on a “slow creep” for the last 150 years—before the post-1950 climb in carbon-dioxide emissions."

On another blog, some years ago, a troll insisted that the "1950 climb" was not the key date. Apparently it is taken as fact in many warmist circles that human caused emissions in the 1890s was sufficient to launch global warming. I was flabbergasted. Human populations and CO2 output at that time were a mere shadow of today.

This CTH link explains what Democrats were doing in our intel. agencies - https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/12/15/the-fisa-conundrum/


"Someone inside the FBI was giving FISA-702 search results on U.S. individuals to a private entity that had nothing to do with government. Those 702 (American Citizen) results were not “minimized” and exposed the private data of the American citizen(s).
In addition, NSA Director Mike Rogers, who is also in charge of Cyber Command, discovered people within the intelligence community were doing “searches” of the NSA and FBI database that were returning information (a non-compliant rate of 85%), that had nothing to do with “Foreign Individuals”."

Obviously Democrat operatives must have looked into "Michael Cohen" & got the wrong guy. They then fed the info to Christopher Steele (a foreigner) who then sent the info BACK in the 'dossier', as if he found out this info on his own.

Investigating the many tips about the Parkland shooter before his rampage

Investigating the long list of crimes of the Awans, or the massive security breaches they caused/exploited

Investigating the Las Vegas concert shooting

etc etc etc

The blood of hundreds of innocent citizens is on their hands, because the FBI chose to spy on political opponents rather than do their actual jobs.

Jeff Sessions had no appetite for cleaning house beyond a few high level firings and resignations. In fact the only time he moved rapidly on anything was to defend the apolitical nature of the bureau when DJT attacked it. Plenty of people knew what they were doing was either illegal or highly partisan yet it still got done.

Remember all the rumors we heard about an internal revolt about this? What a hot steaming pile that was.

Momto2

I found this in the book review comment section of Good Reads - the out-of-control hatred of our President is ridiculous. Perhaps it is slowly beginning to turn-off even non-supporters like this person.

I also was not pleased that in this book, and recent others is that the theme and characters are pointedly aligned to this current dysfunctional White House administration. I am growing weary of all the new historical novels that make anti-Trump statements without using his name. (And, I am no fan of the 45th American President). In this tale, I read over and over how in the 1920s the KKK expanded into the north because of the hatred against people who deemed not “truly” American. Their motto was “America First.” Sound familiar? I am aware that these historical connections need to be repeated in words to serve as reminders of what can happen when politics run amok. But, after finding this Trump-metaphor linking trend so often I, as a reader and a reviewer, need a breather from political teachable moments in my fiction.

Reporters are surely the laziest and most unprofessional gaggle of pud pullers around.

Yeah. Brennan's old business was all into looking at passport records.

2008 - "WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The CEO of a company whose employee is accused of improperly looking at the passport files of presidential candidates is a consultant to the Barack Obama campaign, a source said Saturday.
John O. Brennan, president and CEO of the Analysis Corp., advises the Illinois Democrat on foreign policy and intelligence issues, the source said."....

Again, for perspective: Watergate was a two-bit burglary that exposed some 'dirty tricks' during the campaign of '72. By May of '73 the Senate was holding nationally televised hearings. By May of '74 seven of Nixon's former aides had been indicted for conspiracy, lying to the FBI, etc. Nixon himself had resigned by August '74, midway into the 2nd year of his presidency.

Yet here we are at the end of the 2nd year of Trump's presidency, and the only indictments have been of associates of Trump; none of the Obama conspirators have been indicted. Congressional hearings have been ignored or ridiculed by the media. Allegedly there are other investigations, and we get told the wheels of justice turn slowly, but somehow when Republicans are accused they turn a lot faster.

Thanks MM.

Seriously, I never ever mean to post something hurtful to you, but my sense of humor has been getting me in trouble with girls since I was about 12.

The reason you and I go at it so often is that you prefer to focus on all the things Trump is doing at great risk and expense to himself, almost all of which are admirable things and worthy of praise by me and you both. You are deeply invested in Trump the Man. And as an Optimist, that makes sense for you.

As a Pessimist, I tend to look at the vast forces arrayed against MAGA and while I know from history how one man can sometimes reverse the direction of a people, it is rare and after two years it seems the tide is still flowing against him. As a "control guy", it does frustrate me when some action taken or not taken seems counterproductive to me, though I have always agreed that I know but a fraction of what they know and what their strategy is.

There is no doubt at all that you and I both hope for exactly the same outcome. You retain Hope for that and love for the one man attempting to make it happen. And I am a grumpy pessimist who thinks we waited too long and are not likely to achieve a good outcome short of some huge conflagration. Simply stated, even if Trump had done, or does in the future, every single thing I nag about, I fear we are too late. Demographics and GroupThink are going to swamp our boat.

I wish Trump had been RR's VP, and we might have tipped this ball in flight while there was time to change the trajectory.

However, I have made soe\me leeway on this persecution of Trump by appealing to her sense of fair play, soft-heartedness, and a contrast with her father, who wouldn't have sacrificed anything.

She really did get upset about the fake documents and spying on citizens. I am hopeful that the dems, between this and their over-the-top nastiness, shoot themselves in the foot.

Completely off topic to your point but remind me again: how many states did the Repub win that year?
