Through his interpreter, Kim Jong-un says "In my country, we would make Michael Cohen's family feed his entrails to pigs". Trump thanks Kim, says it's a good idea that deserves some thought.

Cohen seems to be the sleaziest person connected to Trump. But then, if you're going to have a "fixer", I guess you need one willing to play by the rules of that game.

Trump notes that Shakespeare said, "Let's kill all the lawyers". Trump notes that "Shakespeare has got a great reputation, no one has ever seen anything like it, if you can't listen to Shakespeare you can't listen to anybody".

Cohen said Trump never told him to lie to Congress but he wanted him to.

For a lawyer that taped his confidential client phone calls, Cohen sure spends time inventing dialog from elsewhere. If Trump said this crap all the time, it would be on tape. No transcript, Trump didn’t say it.

The U.S. economy is slowing but remains healthy, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome H. Powell told senators Tuesday at his semiannual testimony before Congress. But he repeatedly urged lawmakers to address “unsustainable” debt and find ways to get more Americans working again.

"I had completely forgotten about Kashmir.
Talk about the proverbial "powder keg". Sort of odd that it has been off the world affairs radar and now pops up again."

It's long been said that if Israel ever fell, Muslims would turn their eyes to Kashmir. The list goes on, too. Al Andalus (Spain) will be a flash point once others resolve. Appeasement is not an option.

I've been in and out on the Cohen testimony but he sounds like as much as an idiot as Cummings.

Didn't Cummings limit the questions to Russia? But now it's all about Stormy Daniels.

No one cares.

Sigh, not big on bringing posts fwd from the prev thread but I'll do it just this one time.

AFA notes that WalMart is choosing sides in the culture wars.
"In a move that most Christians probably never expected to see, retail giant Walmart has posted an online video that normalizes homosexual relationships.

For most Christians and other traditionalists, the idea that marriage is between a man and a woman is sacred. We've seen many large corporations reject that in their marketing, but I honestly never thought Walmart would join the cultural revolution and reject the beliefs of its customer base.

The ad is part of a campaign called "Love is in the aisle: A dating show at Walmart." Episode 2 features Pat and Andy, two homosexual men on a "blind date" as they meet at the store and shop together. Through this process they discover whether or not they are compatible.

Sign our petition to Walmart now, urging them to remove the pro-homosexual video and remain neutral on controversial issues."

So,the hateful Dems are letting Cohen spew a personal vendetta against Trump at taxpayer's expense. If India and/or Pakistan drop a nuke,the idiots in Washington won't notice.

Hey,

I just remembered something. Wasn't Kimberly Guilfoyle, now Don Jr's girlfriend, once married to Gavin Newsom, who is now the governor of California?

Am I remembering this correctly?

Why, yes I am!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimberly_Guilfoyle

hrtshpdbox

It's just about a foregone conclusion - the House can certainly say Cohen's word is good enough for them and impeach Trump on the high crime of meeting a stripper's extortion demands, then the Senate will fall about 20 votes short of removing Trump from office, then Trump can go on to get easily reelected with "surprising" strength from Hispanics and blacks. So the cherry on top is that saner policies, and judicial picks, will be the order of the day until at least 2024.

Michael Cohen was one of many lawyers who represented me (unfortunately). He had other clients also. He was just disbarred by the State Supreme Court for lying & fraud. He did bad things unrelated to Trump. He is lying in order to reduce his prison time. Using Crooked’s lawyer!

Then he is another convicted felon who when he gets out can’t practice law.

"Wasn't Kimberly Guilfoyle, now Don Jr's girlfriend, once married to Gavin Newsom, who is now the governor of California?"

I am not so excited about Don Jr for exactly that. No doubt she projects incredible pheromones. But if he broke his family over that, it shows a weakness that can be exploited.

Lightfoot is part of the machine too.

Consumer confidence in the U.S. has rebounded to its highest level in 18 years, following an end to the longest-ever government shutdown. Yet the Conference Board index — which represents Americans’ views on present market conditions — also showed that buying plans for appliances, cars and homes declined, with home prices in 20 cities appreciating at the slowest pace in four years in December.

NYC actually had an election yesterday, for just one position: The entirely useless Public Advocate. To show how useless it is, DeBlasio was Public Advocate before getting elected Mayor.

There were 17 candidates: 16 Ds, one R. The NYT chose to endorse Jumaane Williams. Turns out Williams was arrested 10 years ago for "harassment and criminal mischief" after an argument with his girlfriend. From the NY story:

In an interview on Monday, Mr. Williams said the events leading up to the 2009 arrest began as an argument, but he did not recall what it was about. During the argument, Mr. Williams said that he threw his girlfriend’s purse on the floor and left the apartment to get food for both.

“I went to turn to leave and I tripped over a chair, the chair hit the wall and a snow globe fell from a half shelf,” he added. Mr. Williams said he did not intentionally damage the chair or the snow globe. He denied throwing anything at the woman.

I guess the geniuses at the NYT found this believable. Anyway, Jumaane won with 33%. The lone R got 19%.

I will be very happy when Cohen meets the new love of his life, Tyrone. He can even get Tyrone's name tattooed on his ass.

I am still completely shocked that Cohen has so blatantly broken the vow of attorney-client privilege.

To have a guy who is going to be doing time for lying to the same bunch of Congresscritters he lied to last time is really beyond belief.

This is really just a rehash of rehash of a rerun to throw red meat to the true believers.
