Brennan is actually that dumb, and we trusted him with our G2. Wonderful. We are so screwed.

… when arriving at the pearly Gates of Heaven, a young social justice warrior was told by Saint Peter that he could ask any question.

“Saint Peter, what I really want to know, is what was the collusion between Trump and Russia?”

“My son, there was no collusion by Trump, just between Hil-”

“Wow. The conspiracy goes higher than I realized.”

The best part of John Brennan’s interview on MSNBC today?

The background.

It suggests he’s hunkered down at a local Motel 6, sleeping on a bed that vibrates when you feed it quarters, planning his escape to Cuba.

It’s perfect. Former colleagues like me couldn’t be happier.

Tom R @ 12:42am

If anyone else has some other legit possibilities to explain what happened let me know. I'm sticking with what I said earlier. Since the original position on Mueller of the Ledge dwellers has been completely refuted, that moves the needle in the direction towards my position. We won't know for certain who is correct until all the facts come out and the indictments start flowing. My guess is the floodgates are about to open.

I finished reading Sidney Powell's book "License to Lie" about the same time as Captain Hate and I really suggest you read that fine book.

There is no way Mueller is the 'white hat' as you describe/believe. Anyone who has Weissman on the SC team as Mueller had cannot be unbiased.

Read the book. It explains just how horrible this man Weissman is and the damage he and others like him have done to our legal system.

glasater,

Dan Bongino agrees (listening to his podcast now).

Captain Hate

glasater,

Wasn't that a sickening book in terms of how rotten our DOJ *and* federal courts are? I don't know why Powell's one client wasn't totally exonerated by that dicknosed black robed tyrant. I was as pissed off after reading that book as I was when the Olympic basketball team was screwed in the 72 Olympics; although only in the earlier time was I pacing around saying "this is fucked up and somebody has to make it right" over and over.

Tom R

TOM R. is a fucking clown. HE is not a nice guy period.

The irony of his words are lost on Gus. Has there ever been another poster at JOM as intolerant and incapable of controlling themselves as Gus? I really do feel sorry for him.

Fox has learned Senate Republicans inching closer to third “nuclear option” to try to limit debate after cutting off a filibuster on some nominees. Would need to have failed cloture vote to establish a new "precedent." Would end old 30 hr "post-cloture" period.

Gotta love all those Ds and liberal "legal" analysts who immediately complained Barr made a "hasty" 48-hour decision to rule out obstruction. Turns out he's been working on the question for three weeks, ever since Mueller told him he would not make a conclusion.

liberal "legal" analysts

And yet its large slovenly and occasionally lethal, often to the wrong parties take the bureau our answer to the interior ministry.
It operated mostly with a professional sheen but lower middle class roots the prejudices of 5he director are supposed to impeach its operations, it didnt get involved with organized crime elements till pressed and we see what happened with operation gangster. An slinger the godfather of the dea got involved with foreign and domestic mobs that doesn't seem to serve it in good stead. AMD then we have the company based on upper class ivy league brahmin bankers and lawyers but who got used to dealing with folk of less sterling character.

Captain H, that book really confirmed in my mind your black robed tyrants phrase.

Have been recommending it to many people on twitter. And when Sharyl Atkinson lost her case on the intrusion of her computer she asked her followers if she should appeal the decision.I recommended her to read Powell's book and then decide :-)

You might be right, Tom; tbh I never considered isolating that area of concentration but that is indeed the focus of the activity.

CH,

It's been hiding in plain sight for a while but the people on both sides who actually believed Mueller was trying to destroy Trump apparently overlooked it.

Here is an article discussing that the focus on FARA is continuing even after the Mueller SC.

Tom R

Two years, 40 FBI agents, 19 mostly rabid-Dem lawyers, 500 witnesses, 500 search warrants, 2800 subpoenas, all in the service of helping Trump by going after foreign funding of lobbyists, while faking a Russia collusion investigation?
And then Barr lied to Congress by failing to report on the real investigation in his summary?
Preposterous.

A famous character once said "How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?"

After two years, 40 FBI agents, 19 mostly rabid-Dem lawyers, 500 witnesses, 500 search warrants, and 2800 subpoenas, for someone to still insist that Mueller was on a witch hunt trying to destroy Trump is preposterous. That belief has been eliminated as "impossible". Any future discourse should focus on the remaining possibilities, however improbable you make think them to be.

Tom R

Trump is going into blitzkrieg mode against his political enemies. The leftists are getting hit from multiple fronts.

Captain Hate

That may well be, and it can be argued that this falls under foreign interference and that Rosenstein was directing this effort, but Mueller still included weasel words in his report like "can't exonerate" the President on obstruction. As a prosecutor, his job isn't to exonerate anyone; he either recommends a prosecution or not. This can't be overlooked in assigning whether or not someone is a good guy.

Narciso79

When we see Podesta craig and Weber not merely fined but indicted and convicted

Look I saw how just nearly 19 years ago, both the 11th circuit and the supreme court sanctioned the Elian rendition, which was the most shameless thing till the stone raid

Or ground hog day, or those trek episodes when they are trapped in a timeloop.

JM Hanes

This one's for you, Jane, just in case you need encouragement that the campaign against the real miscreants may actually be getting underway. At this point, I'm just reading the headlines, esp. since This Is CNN, but it doesn't sound like the President is going to be sitting on his heels (I'm not sure that's a real expression, but never mind): Trump moves to weaponize Mueller findings.

And here's a welcome bit of icing on the cake: Pentagon notifies Congress $1 billion authorized to begin new wall construction.

Sounds like Trump is plowing full speed ahead, while the Democrats are all still spluttering about the Mueller results and trying to regroup.

Tom Bowler

Ext,

Once, early on, I was on a so-called "task force," led by a very high-level engineer. This is when I learned how dangerous it is to have a pet theory.

He had one, and tried to fit everything into his pet theory.

I've been guilty of trying to fit things into a pet theory, but I eventually get over it. I think I'm down to only one now, which is: People tend to act in what they believe is their own best interest.

It comes with a caveat. You can never know, though you may think you know, what is truly in somebody else's best interest.

I think a lot of liberals subscribe to this theory as well, except that they also seem to think they know what's in everybody else's best interest. And they seem to think they know what everybody else thinks, erroneously or not, is in their own best interest.

How often have we heard a liberal complain that Republicans trick voters into voting against their own interest, because liberals can't conceive of anybody voting against against higher taxes for rich people and bigger government.

And of course liberals are convinced that money is the sole preoccupation of well off conservatives. I suppose liberals could be just saying that because it's the party line, the go to electoral strategy, to smear Republicans as greedy.

I guess deep down liberals are very shallow.

Tom R

Beasts @ 12:40

If Mueller was actually engaging in a witch hunt to destroy Trump, he wouldn’t have exonerated Trump on the Russian collusion charge which also has the added benefit of pretty much ensuring Trump gets re-elected. . That kinda goes against the entire meaning behind the term “witch hunt”.

Cute young gymnast Katelyn Ohashi makes flying look effortless. I love the part where her teammates dance along with her from the sidelines. She got perfect marks for a routine based on Michael Jackson music and moves last January, but after seeing "Leaving Neverland" she nixed both music and moves completely, shortly before collecting perfect marks again for performance in the video above. Here's the full story.

The Democrats control both houses of the legislature, so this indicates that not all Democrats are on board.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

I got one of those stock emails from the White House, maybe "Resolute Reads". It's been mentioned before, but the Trump Team seems to follow some of the same news sources as we do.
On the list was an article by InstaPundit. It was US News, not the blog. Still, I for one am convinced they know what the Deplorables are discussing at any given time.

It's also a kick to see Don Surber quoting our RG again. Perhaps the independent tentacles of our decentralized movement are beginning to bind together and merge into thicker sinews?

JM Hanes

Doesn't she, just, Jim! It looks both effortless and totally under control at the same time, which is pretty amazing.

Off to bed, where it would be fun to dream of flying again, myself. A few weeks ago, when I was taking some serious meds after a surgery, I slept better than I have for years and consistently dreamt that I was a SUPERHERO, saving scads of people in every sort of trouble. Good times! Alas, I'm afraid Tylenol just doesn't do much for me awake or asleep! Or maybe following politics late at night is the real problem. See y'all tomorrow.

They should have done this sooner.

"More than half of FHA-insured forward mortgage purchase transactions during the last fiscal year were comprised of mortgages where the borrower had a debt-to-income ratio above 50 percent – another troubling trend that has continued into the current fiscal year.

Further, there is an increasing number of instances where borrowers have both a credit score below 640 and a debt-to-income ratio above 50 percent."

That's not good stewardship.

As is my custom I read JOM first and then go look at my other favored sites to see what might have been missed here.

Tonight I'm running across so many stupid stories that I could bring over here and fisk, but I don't want to inflict such idiocy on all of you.

Obviously, the prime example of the idiocy is the inability of some in the media to stop on a dime and change direction. They just can't quit digging a deeper hole for their credibility.

So far the stupidest is a critique on Trump's Golan Heights proclamation because it will endanger Taiwan and India.

Why? Because it will encourage Pakistan and China to also take non-UN approved unilateral actions. Like this is a NEW threat? IHTFP.

The inspector general’s report actually contains pictures of rooms that look like gas chambers. Schnare and others alleged that the EPA paid people $12 an hour to sit in the rooms and breathe in diesel fumes and other pollutants. In one experiment, they breathed in the same amount of pollutants in two hours that normally would be consumed in 24 hours in a smog-filled city.
