The kids brought that book by and I have decided that it is so good I am parceling out the reading. I just finished the introduction, and even that is fascinating.

Let me at this point drop some information I learned and posted on the prior thread (from an article I linked from Twitter, not from Doug Wead's book):

For FIVE YEARS John Brennan, known Communist, Islamic sympathizer, and CIA Director, had his office in the West Wing of the White House. Not AN office but HIS ONLY OFFICE.

I always thought the CIA Director worked out of CIA HQ at Langley, Virginia. Having one headquartered in the West Wing seems HIGHLY unusual and a bit suspicious, to say the least.

MM, can you link to where it says it was his ONLY office please.
That is not what the Tweet says, and I don't see any link there to an article.
(And who is this Greg Rubini, who makes the office claim??)

I shall repeat that far and wide, if verified.
Thanks!

JM Hanes

It really irritates me when gov't offices issue image only PDFs, but here is a text copy of President Trump's Answer to the articles of impeachment, in case you want to excerpt anything from it.

If you're going to quote it, however, I suggest you check it against the actual PDF, because the OCR used to convert it substitutes question marks for fi, fl, ", - , " among other artifacts. It also left out "Volodymyr Zelenskyy" completely on one line. You can access the PDF on the tab bar at the same site above.

MissMarple2

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brennan_(CIA_officer)

Well, it looks to me like there has been some confusion. Brennan worked for the CIA for 25 years, and then got appointed as Deputy National Security Advisor which required no Senate Confirmation, and THAT was when he had the office at the White House (which was his ONLY office but he was NOT CIA Director at that time.)

Obama appointed him to succeed Petraeus, and that is when he got confirmed as CIA Director and then moved to Langley.

I apologize for the confusion, although he IS close to Obama, and now works for NBC News as a consultant.

To show you how prissy conservative sites are, FR pulled pieces today because of the title even though the first s in pussy was asterisked and posters on Lucianne had a hissy fit about the title.

Captain Hate

Shocking that Mayor Petey was turning South Bend into Gary 2, which the AAs would be well aware of hence their negative attitude. The only reason he's included in that field of mutts is that nobody heard of him which puts him ahead of the higher profile losers on the stage. Plus one huge diversity point.

Captain Hate

Maybe OL needs to weigh in on Iggy's potty mouth to make him bluenoses approved.

That Bannon interview was excellent, MM. Thanks for reposting for those of us who missed it the first time through.

I rather like the idea of the WH being run by people proficient in game theory. They react quickly and decisively to rising situations and seem to always take the offensive position.

That said, I'm looking forward to the SOTU, which in theory could be a very good summary of what happened during the impeachment trial as it should wrap up just around that time. No doubt Pelosi and Schumer are not happy that the President will have such a large bully pulpit, which I fully expect him to use to his advantage. And who will be sitting with the First Lady?

US troops drink Iceland capital’s entire beer supply in one weekend

More than 6,000 soldiers were in Reykjavik for four days participating in the Trident Juncture 18 – a NATO-led military exercise. After their drills, the troops reportedly visited the city’s downtown bars, where they finished off the entire beer supply.

MissMarple2

clarice,

I am SO tired of the prissy conservatives. HOW do they expect to attract younger people, who hear much worse stuff in music lyrics on the radio?

I am a 71-year-old grandmother. Although I don't use that word, hearing it doesn't cause me to clutch my pearls. Good grief!

I believe some of the complainers on certain sites are actually trying to create the impression that certain words are not only unacceptable but indicate bad character, and support should be withdrawn from those candidates. In other words, they are leftists PRETENDING to be offended.

Well, I am not buying into that thinking. One of the best podcasts I watch during the week is run by a young guy whose language is liberally salted with 4-letter words; it also has good strategic observations about what's going on in DC and an optimistic outlook on what the President is doing.

I LOVED your column this week, and Iggy's observations, too. Ignore those carpers.

This is an excellent article on the people Brandon Straka, founder of the WalkAway movement, runs across every week.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/the-unsilent-movement-wants-to-end-americas-war-with-itself_3207574.html

When I was in high school my American History teacher would outline issues that caused controversy in different eras of our country's history, and have us discuss them. It might be Prohibition, slavery, school prayer, women's suffrage, etc.

We were expected to take a position based on OUR thinking, and discuss it politely. It was an excellent way to learn debating, and a good exposure to differrent ways of thinking.

In most schools, most of that type of discussion wouldn't be allowed today, which is a shame.

I am still wrapping my football mind around Bill Cowher as a NFL HOF Honoree.

“Bill Cowher as a NFL HOF Honoree”

Why?

Consider that his numbers were attained with half a career. He walked away from a situation he could have stayed with at least another ten years.

Best of all time? No. HOF worthy? Probably yes.

9 times before his SB win and he couldn’t close the deal. Yeah as a student of the game he has more important playoff wins than wins. And finally he wins the SB? What’s his record?

Coryell should be a no brainer. Learn a lot about NFL HOF nominees working with Tom Mack before he finally got accepted.

Wins 149-111 Cowher.
Win percentage .619-.561 Cowher.
Playoff appearances 21-9 Cowher.

Coryell surely innovated more. But he was not as well-rounded as a coach, more or less abdicating defensive coaching responsibilities.

I’ve no objection to Coryell going in, but Coryell as some objection to Cowher doesn’t fly.

And yes, Cowher going to TV didn’t hurt.

Elizabeth Warren
@ewarren

Amazon made over $10 billion in profits but paid $0 in federal income taxes in 2018. That won’t happen when I'm president. Use this calculator to find out how much big corporations would pay when they pay their fair share.

Here's a link to her stupid calculator:

https://elizabethwarren.com/calculator/real-corporate-profit-tax?source=soc-WB-ew-tw
===========================================
Now, if I remember correctly, income tax is not the same as corporate tax. I would like an easy way to explain how misleading Warren's "calculator" is so that I have an answer when this comes up later this year, which in my house it will.

I do not trust her nor anything she puts out as policy or statistics to back that policy up. She is a proven liar.

KevlarKid

Coryell never won the SB. Cowher did. they were head coaches 13 yrs (Coryell) and 14 years. WL recs arent that different. SB wins matter?

it's moot.

i hate the Stillers and the Chargers so they can all burn in hell.

I mean 9 appearances.

Yahoo piggybacks on the NYT to say that the idea that Pelosi delayed the articles to benefit Biden is a conspiracy theory promulgated by the Trump side, "without evidence":
https://news.yahoo.com/trump-spreading-conspiracy-theory-pelosi-151723228.html"--

Yahoo is a liberal site with liberal commenters, but I read the first 200-300 comments, and they all throw scorn on the "conspiracy" idea, pointing out, quite rightly, that it's just common sense--of course that's what she did. Cheering to read, really. I bet the next 7,000 comments said roughly the same, since NONE of the ones I read defended the NYT take.
