Sweet Little Thing will take her support (and faulty research)wherever she finds it.

I want her to keep on talking. Ultimately if she talks enough a large number of people will come to think of her as a babbling idiot.

Also entertaining is the series of attagirls from Crazy Eyes fans who seem to think her reply to Cheney was some kind of sick burn.

"But Ukrainian officials tell me there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member."

Transferred to the Vietnamese Coast Guard. Nothing in the article about whether they are mew or surplus. I assume the latter, but this seems to be an ongoing program.

The news outlet noted that the six vessels came in “addition to another twelve ‘Metal Shark’ patrol boats and a high-endurance cutter provided to Vietnam by the United States in the last two years.”

Sounds like a plan to me. I think both our nations have gotten past our earlier conflict and have some commonalities we can work on today.

The Democrats today killed a Bill that would have provided great relief to Farmers and yet more money to Puerto Rico despite the fact that Puerto Rico has already been scheduled to receive more hurricane relief funding than any “place” in history. The people of Puerto Rico.....

....are GREAT, but the politicians are incompetent or corrupt. Puerto Rico got far more money than Texas & Florida combined, yet their government can’t do anything right, the place is a mess - nothing works. FEMA & the Military worked emergency miracles, but politicians like.....

....the crazed and incompetent Mayor of San Juan have done such a poor job of bringing the Island back to health. 91 Billion Dollars to Puerto Rico, and now the Dems want to give them more, taking dollars away from our Farmers and so many others. Disgraceful!

I have covered the National Constitution Center and the counterfactual 'Heroes' curricula it has created for K-12. It has also redefined commonly understood terms in US History like Liberty and Freedom so that they all now have communitarian, 'to each according to their needs' meanings.

US allies (UK, Australia, Italy) involvement in trying to set up Trump and his guys.

What kind of "ally" engages in behavior like this? Fuck those three countries in particular until they do some serious groveling in terms of turning everyone involved over to us for a Gitmo vacation or worse. I am not kidding on this. There have to be serious consequences for this and any of the assholes in State who say "oh we can't do that to allies" needs to have his/her pampered employment terminated with cause.

Trump tweet (more to come)

Puerto Rico got 91 Billion Dollars for the hurricane, more money than has ever been gotten for a hurricane before, & all their local politicians do is complain & ask for more money. The pols are grossly incompetent, spend the money foolishly or corruptly, & only take from USA....

Funny how The Hill decides what is and isn't relevant national news.

Admittedly, a pastor saying "I cut people" while defending her successor's purchase of a $200K car is kind of awful, but in no way is that a story that has national implications.

James D.

I'm with you, CH. Those countries are run by the exact same kind of traitorous jackasses that comprise our uniparty, and in no way are they our allies (or allies to the people they govern, for that matter).

Another Bob

Is Patterico intending to be the only commenter on his blog?

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I am with you. As far as I am concerned, this constituted an attack by 3 foreign powers; in other words, an act of war.

I long ago lost the fascination I had with Britain from my high school years and the British Invasion. I see Parliament made up of elitists and commies.

They had no right to interfere in the framing of a president for treason, which is what they were trying.

James D.

The British government is basically waging war against its own people (on multiple fronts), so I don't really expect anything better from them in their dealings with us.

Another Bob

CH, that’s one reason of several that will be cited for a highly redacted Mueller report.

The public will be left hanging, never knowing the truth.

Again.

MissMarple2

https://thepacificstandardreports.com/the-uphill-battle-that-president-trump-faces-with-chairman-kim/

One is his foreign reputation abroad, in which our media makes it sound like he will be thrown out of office.

The second is our legacy that we used the nuclear bomb at the end of WWII.

The rest of the Trump tweet

....The best thing that ever happened to Puerto Rico is President Donald J. Trump. So many wonderful people, but with such bad Island leadership and with so much money wasted. Cannot continue to hurt our Farmers and States with these massive payments, and so little appreciation!

Captain Hate

The public will be left hanging, never knowing the truth.

Again.

If Papadopoulos is tweeting about it then we know about it so the cat is at least partially out of the bag. The quisling MFM will lie about it anyway to appeal to their brainless readers like Patterico. The only thing that gives me hope is the belief that DJT will act in the best interests of the country. Maybe that's naive on my part but I can almost guarantee it will be superior to having the Uniparty in charge.

Jack is Back!

I am looking forward to the Ultra-Trumpenfraude Spectacular when Barr gives the Dems the Mueller report "unredacted" (except those parts to protect innocent witnesses). I'll bet he knows every detail in the report. But the Dems may not and it could backfire on them what is revealed.

I think that is why he hasn't unleashed his Thor's Hammer yet. Waiting for the report to be given to Schiff and Cummings and watching their horror:)

With all those retreats to Puerto Rico, you’d think they’d figure out a way to increase the skim pool. Right, Luis G.?

Although I wonder why we expect the unredacted report to contain the TRVTH.

So - inre Sandy Cortez.

She tweeted this 1 Feb 2018:

---
"May not have an education?"

I have a degree in Economics and another in Intl. Relations from Boston University.

Before that MIT honored my work in microbiology.

---

Now for the facts. BU requires 28 Econ credits for an Econ minor, 44 for a major. She took 12 credit hours because her IR degree was an economics track, in classes such as "Economics of Less-Developed Regions." She does not have a BU Econ degree.

As for the microbiology thing, this is even funnier. It has to do with her finishing second place in her high school science fair.

Lastly, I want to give a shoutout to Alexthechick for this wonderful Tweet last night:

"Child, let me explain something to you. Once upon a time, you were just marginally pretty enough to be this dumb and this bitchy. Those days? Ended five years ago. And those tits? Have maybe six months left before you aren't even amusing. Gravity always wins."

NEW: Firms Tied To Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele Were Paid $3.8 Million By Soros-Backed Group

The Democracy Integrity Project, a nonprofit that receives funding from George Soros, paid firms tied to Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele more than $3.8 million in 2017.
Tax filings show that The Democracy Integrity Project provided its research to “government entities.”
The group’s founder, a former staffer for Dianne Feinstein, has described it as a “shadow media organization” that helps the government.

All it required was for the Obama administration to have a small group at the top of the DOJ/FBI who were either in on the scam or willing to overlook the abuse. There was no adversarial oversight.

The whole thing needs to be reworked from the ground up.

I remember when the "Patriot Act" was passed, and I didn't take seriously those who said it was a serious breach of our liberties, and was a terrible bill that should never have been rammed through. I didn't take it seriously because Terrorism! And we have to support Bush!!!

Look how little time has passed, and it's obvious that the "Patriot Act" and the FISA amendments were one of the most damaging bills ever passed, easily as damaging to this country and to our rights as citizens as anything Obama ever did.

We created a Star Chamber, ripe for abuse, and we all sat around and twiddled our thumbs while it was done.
