PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Finally, to promote integration, assimilation, and national unity, future immigrants will be required to learn English and to pass a civics exam prior to admission

We have three or four hummingbirds so far. The food is going down faster each day.

Dang. No hummingbird emoji!

JM Hanes

I still wonder how de Blasio got re-elected in the first place. I don't remember ever seeing him with a pleasant expression on his face. I never liked Bloomberg, but I understand that under his management government offices and agencies become far more responsive to citizen concerns. If you called up about a pothole, a pothole got fixed. Di Blasio just coasted on the improvements made by everybody else, spent a bunch of money, enriched his wife and pals. Now he wants to hit the big time in DC before people realize just how much backsliding occurred on his watch in NY.

Captain Hate

Maybe New Yorkers hate groundhogs.

Extraneus

Flynn wasn't smart enough to realize he was being set up. Probably best that he didn't stay on as NSA.

Yes. I don't read it.

I am with you, JM Hanes.

I can only conclude that New Yorkers don't pay attention.

Those gloves look about as stupid as him.

--Fist!!--

Is that contempt humor or (Let lightning strike me down!) some ghastly, kinky innuendo? :)

glasater

Left a thanks to Extraneus on the last dead thread :-)

I think you nailed it. General Flyn was 'way to trusting of those FBI #bozos.

But agree it was Weissman who was carrying out higher ups orders and who directly tore down Manafort.

Diblasio is lazy and stupid and collecting mega-millions from Corp donors who get whatever they want with a single phone call. He’s a criminal of the worst sort.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Did DeBlasio get elected strongly or was it like when AOC won with only a small number of voters?
He seems corrupt. A number of donors are pleading guilty recently.

Insty links to a tribute to Warren Phillips, otherwise known as “The Man Who Built the The Wall Street Journal Editorial Page.”

Pretty sure ole Warren wouldn’t recognize his creation these days after they all but explicitly endorsed Hilligula three years ago for prez and recently touted Amy Klobuchar as the remedy for the vulgar Orange Man next election. I dropped my subscription a couple of months ago and don’t miss it.

The Italian prime minister has suddenly requested resignations from 6 deputy directors of Italian intelligence agencies: DIS, AISI and AISE. This was all after I outed Mifsud in Rome and the president called the Italian prime minister. Italy has flipped and are giving up Brennan.

Threadkiller

Flynn wasn't smart enough to realize he was being set up.

One of the clowns that was interviewed, according to Mueller's report, said that Trump early on thought that firing Flynn would end the whole witch hunt.

Trump probably had a dim view of Flynn.

Our power is out at the moment. Idaho Power informs me online that it’s due back on at 7pm MDT. The same Idaho Power is running all sorts of media ads every day touting their plans to be 100% “renewable” energy by the year 2045...

I’ll be happily dead by then but this fucking scam is NOT showing any signs of slowing.

lyle

The sanctimony in the ads is palpable, of course.

jimmyk

Did DeBlasio get elected strongly or was it like when AOC won with only a small number of voters?

The turnout was something like 27%. Of course the NY Republican party is entirely inept. While the two candidates they've run against DeBlasio were competent and likeable, they had no star power. Sadly that's what's necessary to beat a Democrat.

Thanks, jimmyk. That's what I expected.
With these low turnout elections, one of these years the GOP should launch a vote harvesting operation.

Some of these deep state twists remind me of a very nihilistic action film called smoking aces, there is a race to stop an assainatiom plot against a low level mob snitch and cardsharp (hence the title) who had a connection to an old line capo primo esperanza, who had apparently killed a bureau agent freemam Heller some 50 years ago. The twist is much like with anakin and Darth vader If you get the drift.

So the angle is the deputy bureau chief chooses to keep his underlings out of the loop, because the sperazza case is like the bulger case on steroids

The Infamous Ignatz

--Trump probably had a dim view of Flynn.--

There were reports of Flynn lying to VP
Pence about contacts with Russkies or Turks or some such at the time.
That would quickly produce a dim view.
Were they refuted?

Narciso79

Maybe it was pence's chief of staff who planted those reports based on contacts with strzok or others

I've never had that story adequately explained, Iggy. Why is everyone teeing off on Flynn?

Jane

I hope that’s not true about Flynn because I’ve always been a big fan. Can’t remember why, except maybe because he took a bullet for his son.

The landscape here is increasingly littered with solar "farms". Is there a powerpoint out there that can explain to the sheeple how the gas, coal or {shudder} nuclear baseload can't just come up in a minute when the clouds come over?

They have a star in Trump and hate him. The problem is the party. They think we're gonna just give it back to their stewardship in 2024. LOL get fucked.

CH, on the last page of the last thread Ext posted a just released memo that sheds light on how the feds approached and intimidated Flynn. I don't think he deserved the any of the treatment he received in the cover-up disguised as an investigation, but if he let himself get wrangled the way it appears, I have to take some points away from him.

matt - deplore me if you must

That happens all the time, AB. They're pilots, after all and can usually deadhead. A lot of them leave the regular military and then enter the reserves. Only place you can fly the fun stuff.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

I'm the last who should comment on Flynn but I thought the sequence went:
Obama team hated him
Vichy GOP operatives helped trap him

I haven't heard he'd done anything wrong outside of naïveté mentioned today.
OTOH I don't follow that stuff closely.

Narciso79

In other news it turns out it was just a blower motor that had to be replaced but my main TV is still on the fritz

So, apparently the “media’ are not reporting the walls collapsing on the left - which tells you everything you need to know. Does anyone know what they are reporting on? They must be bored.

Oh it’s worse than that MM. the company Biden jr was working for was under prosecution. Biden threatened to withhold millions Obama sent Ukraine if the prosecutor wasn’t fired, and he was. Very very dirty.

Jane,

I think the entire family is corrupt.

Catsmeat

narciso, you will love Framley Parsonage--though those were different days about how debt and bills were handled--when you judge our very faulty hero for being a clergyman who foxhunts and gets caught up with the freespending aristocracy, it's good to remember that Trollope loved fox-hunting and in the season would hunt at least three times a week. Very good exposure of shysters here--and also a terrific heroine who makes a grand dame cave.

Next you can try my favorite outside of the Barchester novels, Can You Forgive Her?

I don't even know if they hate Trump, Captain. All I know is that they're not really making an effort in local races. Most Republicans in the city are on Staten Island and the farther reaches of Queens. But we did have at least non-Democrat mayors here for 20 years. It's not impossible.

And, CH, I missed the Hogan's Heroes discussion earlier. You probably know this, but some may not: A good number of the cast were Jewish and either Holocaust survivors who lost family members, or refugees. Klink, Schultz, LeBeau, and I think at least one of the generals. LeBeau in particular I think lost most of his family. So I figure if that humor is ok with them, it's ok with me.
