  • The Big Cat and the mice

    Filed under Open thread at July 11th, 2017 - 1:13 pm

    The mice from the uni-party chase their tails as Big Cat Trump passes his agenda and unwinds Obama’s horrid legacy. We are already 180 days or so into the Trump Presidency. This pattern continues. The uni-party goes after the shiny object, Trump and the America First crew get their agenda passed.

    Clinton and the Ukies????

     

    Anyway, after 9 night shifts in 11 days I have come to the realization that the uni-party must feel how the right felt under Obama…yessir! We got him how! He’ll be frogmarched any second…

      speaking for myself, I never thought that. I spent the entire 8 years in a fog of despair. But you’re right about the NeverTrumpers. Don Jr just tweeted out the entire email chain. Now their dilemma is “shit? go blind?” Not only that, even tho no collusion occurred, they are convinced that the fact of the meeting proves WILLINGNESS which proves INTENT which proves GUILT. That nothing actually happened seems to not have registered. May I present one Mr. Jared Yates Sexton. Mr. Sexton knows something has changed. Watch his twitter thread as he realizes he as entered…The Twilight Zone.

      I tracked down sources. Followed so many dead leads. Labored over this. And, then, you know, he just tweeted out the proof

      Like. I spent hours and days and weeks and months. And his son just hit tweet.

      I’m not entirely convinced I’m not having a break from reality

      Sen. John McCain faces questions in a defamation lawsuit about leaks leading to publication of the now-infamous dossier that alleged Donald Trump’s campaign had connections to Russian operatives, McClatchy has learned.

      The dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and his London firm, Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd., amounted to a collection of uncorroborated reports of collusion gathered as political research for sale to Trump’s opponents. It proved explosive when published by online news site BuzzFeed on Jan. 10.

      Now, two lawsuits — one in the United States and a second in the U.K. — are being brought by lawyers for Aleksej Gubarev, a Cyprus-based Internet entrepreneur whom Steele’s Russian sources accused of cyber spying against the Democratic Party leadership.

      @ coldwarrior:

      What the hell did McLame hope to gain by this? He’s on record as essentially being so excited about the possible revelations in this dossier that he sent an effing flunky to London to get it. And then – public servant that he was – he turned it over to the FBI, where the worse FBI director since its founding reads it and decides to open up an investigation on TRUMP based on the almost laughable allegations.

      Meanwhile, somehow several press organs get their hands on it (I’m sure this was McLame yet again using surrogates). However, they at least show some sense and attempt to verify the information. They can’t. So it sits and sits and sits.

      McLame did this from first to last to smear Donald Trump. Don’t get to do that Sparky.

      @ coldwarrior:

      Precisely. He was told there was information about ILLEGAL dealings by Hillary. As it turns out, even though he took the meeting, there was no information given to him and it was just a ruse. Probably a set up. This same lawyer is pictured with Obama’s Russky Ambassador a week AFTER the meeting.

      Meanwhile, back at the looney bin:


      Kaine: Russia Probe Now Potentially an Investigation of ‘Treason’

      Sen. Tim Kaine (D., Va.) told reporters on Tuesday that the Russia investigation is potentially moving into a “treason” investigation after reports surfaced of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer last summer.

      In the wake of New York Times reports on Trump Jr. and other Trump campaign officials meeting with a Russian attorney who they believed had damaging information about Hillary Clinton, Kaine said the probe into obstruction of justice could evolve into something more serious.

      “Nothing is proven yet, but we’re now beyond obstruction of justice in terms of what’s being investigated,” Kaine said. “This is moving into perjury, false statements, and even into potentially treason.”

      Kaine was Clinton’s running mate in the 2016 presidential election.

      Kaine added, “To meet with an adversary to try to get information to hijack democracy. The investigation is now more than just obstruction of justice in investigation. It’s more than just a perjury investigation. It’s a treason investigation.”

      i came from the dock. i dont forget my brothers there.

      i will go to the dock for a fight.

      Say hey Johnny boy, the battle call.
      United we stand, divided we fall.
      Together we are what we can’t be alone,
      We came to this country, you made it our home.

      This man so humble, this man so brave.
      A legend to many, he fought to his grave.
      Saved family and friends from the hardship and horror,
      in a land of depression he gave hope for tomorrow.

      Say Johnny me boy, this ones for you.
      With the strength of many and the courage of few.
      To what do we owe this man who’s fight
      was for the masses, he gave his life.

      Say hey Johnny boy, the battle call
      United we stand, divided we fall.
      Together we are what we can’t be alone,
      We came to this country, you made it our home.

      A friend to the locals who dabbled in crime.
      He’d give you a job and he’d give you his time.
      He wasn’t a crook, but he couldn’t be conned.
      John knew the difference between right and wrong.

      Say Johnny me boy, you live no longer,
      Others forgotten, your memory’s stronger.
      Lets drink to the causes in your life:
      Your family, your friends, the union, your wife.

      Say hey Johnny boy, the battle call.
      United we stand, divided we fall.

      And the boys on the docks needed John for sure.
      When they came to this country he opened the door.
      He said “Man I’ll tell ya, they don’t like our kind.

      Though it starts with a fist it must end with your mind.”

      Say hey Johnny boy, the battle call.
      United we stand, divided we fall.
      Together we are what we can’t be alone.

      @ lobo91:

      So, let me get this straight.
      Taking a meeting where you might learn damaging information on Hillary Clinton is “hijacking Democracy” now? By the same token, someone should point out to him that Hillary’s surrogates and the DNC may have done some serious collusion vis-a-vis that dossier and that they hired a UKRANIAN firm to check their server when it was found to be hacked, rather than turn it over to probably the best Cyber discovery team in the world?

      Oh, and it appears that this shady guy who set up the meeting for Trump Jr. works for the shady organization that was doing Op research for the Democrats.

      Curiosor and Curiosor – Natalia Veselnitskaya Pictured With Obama Officials in DC on June 14th, 2016…

      At the heart of the current media Russian narrative du jour is a story about Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian attorney named Natalia Veselnitskaya. That meeting took place on June 9th 2016 in Trump Tower.

      Now it is discovered via video and images, that only 5 days later, June 14th 2016, Ms. Veselnitskava was a guest of former Obama administration Russian Ambassador Michael McFaul in Washington DC for a House of Representatives hearing on U.S. Policy Toward Putin’s Russia.

      Ms. Natalia Veselnikskaya is pictured seated in the front row directly behind former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Mr. Michael McFaul at the House Foreign Affairs Committee. This is June 14th, five days after the reported meeting with Donald Trump Jr.

      It should be noted that Ambassador McFaul was very publicly discussing the ‘Muh Russia’ conspiracy narrative in the media and appeared on numerous NBC and MSNBC broadcasts during the 2016 campaign, and immediately after the election.

      It should also be noted that Ms. Natalia Veselnitskaya was initially denied an entry visa into the United States in 2016 and appealed her situation to the U.S. District Court of New York. She was granted a parole letter allowing her to enter the United States on behalf of a client.

      It’s enough to make you wonder what exactly is the nature of the relationship between Natalia Veselnitskaya and President Obama’s appointees such that they would be visibly working together on a few days after her reported meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in Trump Tower….

      @ Deplorable Barbarian:

      WHAT is going on with this?

      After a stunningly low overall passage rate of 34.5 percent for the most recent exam, the State Bar of California committed to study the test and examine the cut score, but it looks like the California Supreme Court thought that the process was taking too long, so the justices took it upon themselves to do something.

      According to the Daily Journal (sub. req.), in an unprecedented move, the California Supreme Court has decided to strip the Committee of Bar Examiners of its authority to decide the minimum score needed to pass the exam:

      The state Supreme Court amended its rules to specify only the court has authority to set the passing score on the exam.

      Did anyone else watch Tucker Carlson smack down Ralph Peters? Who, I think has lost his mind because he compared Tucker to a Nazi. Wanna watch Tucker turn into a buzzsaw?

      I did tune in to watch that Eagles. Peters might be a ‘patriot’ but alas his mind remains totally mired in the Cold War. It’s over ! We won! Well we had the illusion of winning and the Soviets did in fact fall. What replaced them is a whole different story.

      Meanwhile back to Peters.
      Tucker laid it out for him with a nuanced , “the enemy of my enemy is (with clear understandable constraints) my temporary ally.”

      In fact in the world of high strategy there are no such things as permanent allies, only other nation states with current aligned national interests.

      In a world awash with evil bastards running nation states and few if any angels, a logical foreign affairs strategy is built on supporting anyone who advances your national interests for as long as that happens and as long as other countervailing issues do not nix that advantage. Hell the US was late entering both WWI and WWII due to extant national interests. The US Lend Leased 30 obsolete destroyers to the British in 1940-41 and got their ‘pound of flesh’ in spades because it suited US interests and because the British REALLY needed them ‘at any price’. When national interests diverge even shooting wars can erupt, as almost happened between Britain and the US in 1928.

      Peters needs to put the cold war behind him if possible. If he can’t then he is of little use in framing what is actually happening globally in 2017.

      oh good JUST the person I wanted to talk to. Peters made a point I’ve heard others make and I don’t know how much credit to give it. The point is that Russia is NOT killing our shared enemy ISIS but bombing civilian targets instead.

      I don’t have any way of evaluating that assertion. I have a few questions tho. 1. Why would Russia bomb civilian targets? 2. Why WOULDN’T Russia bomb ISIS?

      64 | July 11, 2017 10:59 pm

      Russia is merely following its National Interests that’s all and they are NOT aligned with US interests as far as Assad is concerned. Putin has chosen Assad with all of warts, actually in spite of his warts, as Russia’s man in Syria. To understand this a little better it’s necessary to roll back time a bit to the Cold War 1980s when Israel and Egypt buried the hatchet and Russia totally lost its leverage in the Mediterranean and were put back in their Black Sea box. NATO and specifically the US 6th. Fleet ruled the Med.
      Russia has been attempting to reverse that for the past 30 years and have in Assad the ideal candidate. The Crimea gambit where Putin played ‘Indian Giver’ by grabbing back the Crimean Peninsular with the attached Black Sea Fleet HQ, that was ‘given away to the Ukraine by Nikita K back in the early days of the Cold War.
      Russia knew that they had a potential client state in Assad’s Syria. Assad was a secular socialist of the Baath variety and was a blood enemy of the theocrats of Saudi and the Sunnis in general. Assad was not limited by morality or religious mantra. He was the perfect client for Russia to use to re-enter the war waters of the Med.

      If Bush had been smart he’d have used the secularist Baathist Saddam as the client of the US interests and kept the Sunni theocrats in their box. The US was dumb and the Russians were smart.

      Russia is doing what advances their agenda and national interests. That involves killing Assad’s domestic enemies including many dodgy US allied Muslim armies currently fighting against Assad and on occasion ISIS. Putin knows that the Kurds are probably too difficult to put back in their box and are more of an ’embuggerance’ to Turkey (a NATO Member State) than they are to Assad. Other Sunni theocratic and secular armies fighting Assad’s forces … not so much! ISIS is secondary to the Russians as their core intent is to see the Assad regime survive, and with it Russia’s centre back into the Med and its warm water post and airfield.

      The facts are that most of the Sunni war fighters being financed by the US are theocratic Sunnis only mildly better than ISIS. The Allawites ( a breakaway Arab sect of the Shi’a (most of whom reside in Iran) of the secular Assad Regime were much more reliable clients.
      Arabs hate both Ottomans (Sunni Truks) as well as Persians (Iranians) almost as much as they hate Shi’a in general and Christians in particular.

      The US has teamed up with VERY dodgy Sunni theocrats only mildly better than ISIS as well as a few fairly weak secularist armies. These are the targets for the Russians as it’s these rebel armies who pose a post war challenge to a rump Assad regime based around the Allawite rump on the coast.

      When I was in Kuwait, the company gave me a cell phone. They apparently bought the things by the pallet from a local provider.

      Naturally, they come out of the box set to Arabic as the default language. I managed to switch the display to English, so I figured I was set.

      Until the first time I tried to send a text.

      Apparently, the predictive text used by the text messaging is separate from the display language. I spent about 5 minutes trying to type a four word text to someone to tell them where I was waiting for them to pick me up, because it kept changing everything I typed to Arabic.

      I am aware of the long standing ties between Syria and Russia. Syrians have been educated in Moscow for generations and there has been a lot of intermarriage. I was surprised that U.S. foreign policy seemed not to take that into consideration.

      Bashir is not the man his daddy was. ‘Hamas Rules’ didn’t come easily to him and I’m sure he’s a bit put out that the world is pissed that he didn’t kill all those people with tanks and bullets instead of chems. Dead is dead, after all.

      The issue of ports is one I consistently forget and I know better. As for the Kurds, they’re the Poles of WW II in this mess. I don’t blame Erdogan for going after the PKK, they’re commie scum who continue their cross-border incursions and no country would tolerate that. But there should be some way found to get them a safe space and it doesn’t look like that’s being done.

      As far as the idea of using a secular Saddam – the man was not stable enough to form a reliable alliance with. And Uday and Qusay really had to go, they were monsters of the first order, nothing politically viable could have been done with Saddam as long as those two were alive.

      I used to keep a running scorecard about who was who in the zoo in the Syrian conflict but gave it away as I wasn’t using the information regularly and there were so many (typically Arab) changes of loyalty , fractionating in organisation ORBATS, tribal differences resulting in infighting, that maintaining the variable ‘zoo’ of 30-40 different groups was daunting.

      I gave it away as a fool’s errand and just ‘caught myself up’ when i ended to pump out some analysis.

      US strategic nouse tends to be episodic and disparate. If you want to learn from the ‘masters’ look at the British Foreign Office during the period 1830- 1960 to see a Masterclass in perfidy but constancy where the Brits with sand in their shoes knew the hellhole that they we’re resident better than the locals as the Brits were coldly calculating and took ‘the chinese century perspective’. The US foreign policy is amateur hour in comparison and reflects the US attitude to foreign affairs as short term expediency trumps long term strategic national interests.

      Let me get the first one.

      I play up my former role as a Rock Star to the hilt, but truth is, there is a lot more to me than dumb Rock Star. That’s just the image I am most comfortable with people seeing me as.

      I have seven years of applied physics under my belt as well as three as a alphabet agency analyst. (They paid for my BA in Music, United States International University, largest US Listening post in the US)

      I did DARPA Black Project work in ballistic composite materials and Aerospace Stealth between 2007 and 2012. I have a Ohio-Standford-Binet test score of 5 standard deviation points above average.

      Cold has verified most of this through people he knows. One of my failing as a human being, is that sometimes I resemble Sheldon from “The Big Bang Theory” I’m not actually trying to insult people, I just have the tact of a small nuclear weapon.

      I was not trying to pick a fight with you, (Had to talk to cold who assured me you were one of the good guys). Sometime I just get very excited. You should have seen me go round and round with Rodan in the old days.

      Oh, and as a side note, notice your comments about Russia above, and could not agree more. Russian Georgia and Ukraine were blatant incursions by the UE/US into Russian sovereign territory.

      A 34% bar pass rate is not all that atypical. California has one of the most difficult bar exams in the country – I believe Washington D.C. is also among the toughest. In fact, those attending law school in California traditionally check out the bar pass rate of their graduates. Here’s a little inside baseball – for the longest time, the highest bar pass rate was not Boalt Hall at Cal, or Stanford or UCLA – it was McGeorge School of Law at the Unviersity of the Pacific in Sacramento.

      It’s the same state that gave you the initial Bakke decision – they’ve been dumbing down the standards for decades.

      Okay, time to do some research on this guy.

      This is interesting: In 2003, President George W. Bush nominated Wray as assistant attorney general in charge of the Criminal Division of the Justice Department. Wray was unanimously confirmed by the Senate.Wray was assistant attorney general from 2003 to 2005, working under Deputy Attorney General James Comey. While heading the Criminal Division, Wray oversaw prominent fraud investigations, including Enron.

      Okay, a COMEY connection. Am I wrong to be apprehensive on this?

      According to the Daily Journal (sub. req.), in an unprecedented move, the California Supreme Court has decided to strip the Committee of Bar Examiners of its authority to decide the minimum score needed to pass the exam:

      The state Supreme Court amended its rules to specify only the court has authority to set the passing score on the exam.

      A 34% bar pass rate is not all that atypical. California has one of the most difficult bar exams in the country – I believe Washington D.C. is also among the toughest. In fact, those attending law school in California traditionally check out the bar pass rate of their graduates. Here’s a little inside baseball – for the longest time, the highest bar pass rate was not Boalt Hall at Cal, or Stanford or UCLA – it was McGeorge School of Law at the Unviersity of the Pacific in Sacramento.

      It’s the same state that gave you the initial Bakke decision – they’ve been dumbing down the standards for decades. That these idiots on the Supreme Court, a group of partisan political hacks, think they know more than the Committee of Bar Examiners, who are as objective as it gets, is just the next in a series of Democrat power grab in the state.

      Why does it feel like this is just a first step, the next being the SC deciding that not enough minorities are passing.

      BREAKING: 2 Democrats Have Drawn Up Article Of Impeachment Against President Trump…

      Rep. Brad Sherman (D., Calif.) announced he introduced an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

      Sherman was joined by Rep. Al Green (D., Texas) as a co-sponsor on the measure. They have both publicly called for Trump’s impeachment in the past, as has Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.). House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has cautioned against impeachment talk, despite her own criticism of Trump.

      Republicans control the House of Representatives and many Democrats are hesitant to go as far as calling anything done by Trump “impeachable,” fearing political backlash.

      Sherman’s argument of impeachment is focused on claiming Trump has committed obstruction of justice regarding the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

      yes. of course there wasn’t, but even Krauthammer, who is not a lawyer, has pontificated on it and decided it is so. ‘Love it!” seems to be the damning evidence in the email. I gather the idea of gathering dirt on your political opponents from someone you may or may not know is working for a foreign gov’t is collusion, but marshalling the forces of your OWN gov’t, e.g., the IRS, to destroy your political opponents, is just SOP.

      Years ago, Hubby arranged an exchange trip between American dairy farmers and Russian dairy farmers. You think everybody involved in getting that done was pure as the driven snow?

      FAKE NEWS=> CNN’s Chris Cuomo: It’s Okay if Ukrainian Govt Meddles in Our Elections, but Not Russia (VIDEO)

      As usual, Chris Cuomo makes up his own laws claiming it’s okay if the Ukrainian government was working with Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, because they aren’t Russia. Makes sense. Jay Sekulow smacked down Cuomo quickly by saying, “that’s not the law.”

      Cuomo: “You don’t let Russia interfere in American elections. You don’t do that.”

      Sekulow: “I want to ask you this question…the Ukrainian government was giving information to the DNC and to Hillary Clinton’s people on who? Donald Trump. So we’re acting as if this doesn’t happen..”

      Chris Cuomo immediately defended his Queen Hillary by saying it’s different for her to work with a foreign government because it’s Ukraine and not Russia. Really Cuomo? Please cite the law.

      Cuomo: “Ukraine is not Russia, okay? You can get oppo research from whoever you want”

      Sekulow: “You just said if it’s the Ukrainians it’s okay, if it’s the Russians, it’s not. That’s not the law.”

      After Cuomo gets hit with some cold hard facts from a lawyer on the actual law, he stutters as he once again mentions that Ukraine is not Russia. We know Chris, we know.

      Hillary Clinton not only coordinated with Ukrainian government officials during the 2016 election, she also had a secret meeting with a Chinese ambassador. But that’s okay because Hillary can do whatever the hell she wants without reprisal from the fake news media.

      You and I can ‘collude’ to throw coldwarrior a surprise birthday party. That is not a crime. The only time collusion is a crime is if the intended goal is criminal. This meeting took place in June. Trump didn’t even win the nomination until July. (You might want to ask yourself what other Republican candidates still standing were also approached.) So Junior met with someone who – we will stipulate – he knew had Kremlin connections because he was told she had dirt on Hillary.

      As for DNC/Ukraine – one Alexandra Chalupa, an American-Ukranian Democratic activist apparently offered the services of the Ukranian gov’t to the DNC in order to undermine the Trump campaign. It looks like there may have been DNC people going to the Ukranian embassy or something, I’m not clear on some of these points yet. I haven’t traced the timing on this yet either, but apparently at this point Paul Manafort was the Trump campaign mgr.

      Then all of a sudden he wasn’t. Because he had lobbied for Ukraine.

      Go figure. This part of the story is still being fleshed out.

      I too saw the Boot meltdown in Tucker this afternoon.

      He arrived barely able to contain the vitriol and yet failing in his attempt to be taken seriously. The total contempt by Boot for Carlson didn’t take long to explode onto the scene. It rapidly turned to anger and hatred that rendered Boot incoherent and seemingly out of control emotionally.

      When you lose it the way Boot lost it you have to know that you look like a raging nutter of the first tier. The Council for Foreign Relations is home to many seriously disturbed individuals that alas included some former Cold Warriors who can’t acknowledge that they won. Digging deeper into Boot’s organisation makes for rather disturbing reading as well. The CFR is home to elitists, would be elitists and some downright evil NWO types who’s pedigrees stretch back decades.

      Mostly they play the ‘DC Beltway consultancy game’ but they have some really bad news hidden agendas in their closets, that get shown in the real world as spleen vents when their world view is challenged.

They’re a bunch of academics who write books they think actually have some influence on policy and therefore they run the world. I had an altercation with one of these geniuses years ago about climate change. This was after the East Anglia emails were leaked. Included in those leaks was little snippet of code that showed they cooked the tree ring data. I was a software developer for 30 years, I could read the damn code. Besides the fact that Keith Briffa’s email explicitly stated he had cherry picked the tree ring data before it was even massaged by the fraudulent code.

      bookmark this link. It’s a very clear, complete explanation of what is and is not legal written by a real, honest-to-god lawyer and legal scholar, Eugene Volokh

      Limiting candidates’ ability to expose their opponents’ misbehavior would violate the First Amendment, and no interest in “barring foreign interference” could justify such a restriction. Indeed, denying candidates this right to get such information and convey it to voters would itself interfere with “the right of the American people themselves to decide who our elected officials and representatives are.”

I’m so pissed I can’t even think straight right now. I would just shoot the sob cold right now if he was in front of me. The damn police are being pretty worthless too. (Though I know from experience helping my father when his truck was robbed, that the police keep everything they recover and never return it. So, they’re just as bad as the crooks.)

      That sucks. We’ve found some property on our yard a couple times. Turned it over to the cops and after 30 days we were able to claim it as ours.

      Bonnie is in the hospital again. She woke up this morning, refused breakfast and – started vomiting blood. She’s in pain and they admitted her.

      I haven’t even showered. have to get my butt in gear.

      Oh, I figured out the Valkyrie thing. The Vikings were great slavers and they ruled Ireland from about the 9th Century thru – I dunno – about 400 years or so I think.

      gotta go.

      @ RIX:

      Cruz’s speech patterns are those like you hear in trial summation and oral argument. Every time I hear him speak, I picture 12 people in a box or 9 judges on a dias.

      I am disappointed Trump didn’t appoint Cruz Attorney General. He would have fit the role well, wouldn’t have had to recuse himself over Beastie and her emails. And he sure as sh*t wouldn’t have appointed that partisan hack Mueller to be the special prosecutor.

      well, Loretta Lynch’s DOJ apparently granted her a ‘special’ visa after it had been denied. I have no idea why it was denied in the first place, but SOMEBODY must have thought she’s a dodgy character.

      Indeed – and the visa I believe was granted about a week or so before the meeting, wasn’t it? Everything about this smells like a set-up. Don Jr. is right when he says that in hindsight, he should have handled it differently but the fact remains is that he did.nothing.wrong. Period.

      And as for those who said that if he got incriminating information on Hillary (which he DIDN’T), he should have turned it over to the Justice Department or the FBI. This would be the same Justice Department / FBI that was covering up Hillary’s misdeeds and criminal acts? THAT Justice Department and FBI?

      Oh, and as it turns out, it appears the emails came to light because Jared Kushner’s legal team was updating his security information and produced the emails. To the FBI. It’s very probable that it was the FBI that leaked these emails to the press.

      The level of corruption here is disgusting.

      I would hold off before I bought into that one. First, the base line source seems to be the NYT, nuff said. Second, the media as a whole has been trying to gin up this story about ‘camps’ in the WH at each other’s throats, first it was Bannon (remember when he was on his way out?) – so this just may be another attempt to sow a split – or a seeming split -within the family. The would love to see a war w/in the family. Lately I’ve been reading that Jared is not the sharpest tool in the shed and that daddy got him into Harvard w/ a $2mil contribution. True? Dunno. But it’s odd that admins from his very private school would talk even anonymously about his less than stellar grades. That’s not a smart move if you live off trust fund babies and their daddies who write the checks.


    160. 161 | July 13, 2017 11:01 am

      @ eaglesoars:

      I have a healthy skepticism of everything these days.

      So Harvard admins are spilling the beans on Kushner? Spot on that this won’t sit well with the monied alums with their less than brilliant offspring hoping to grace the halls of Cambridge.

      I think Harvard’s highly overrated anyway. But then my mother’s family is from New Haven.

      After all the sturm and drang of the last few days, I thought I’d post a link to Twitchy, where our ol’ buddy Iowahawk, through a series of Tweets, gives the HuffPo “journalist” pointers for their announced tour through “Middle America.”

      Dem Senator: Trump, Jr. Could Face Prison Time

      A Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee said that Donald Trump Jr. may face prison time if he is criminally charged and convicted for his communication with a Russian lawyer who offered opposition research on the Clinton campaign last year.

      “These emails are textbook evidence of criminal intent. It is a bombshell for this investigation because the most difficult element of any crime is criminal intent to prove, and it will lead to numerous other avenues of investigation and probably indicates many other meetings,” Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal told The Daily Caller Wednesday.

      “If he is charged and convicted, there certainly is potential for criminal prison time,” added Blumenthal, the former attorney general of his home state.

      Umm…wouldn’t there have to be some actual criminal act intended? The only “intent” I see proven is the release of dirt on Hillary Clinton. Last time i checked, that wasn’t a crime.

      Alyson Camerota interviewed him this morning. “What’s the name of the crime?”

      He rolled out a bunch of statute codes (why is 18 always in there?) – had no idea what any of them meant.

      He want to Yale Law. He DID NOT go to Vietnam

      Title 18 is the section of the US Code that covers crimes and criminal procedure

      @ lobo91:

      Blumenthal? The fake Vietnam War Veteran?
      I’d love to ask this clown what part of the US Code Trump Jr. violated.

      Levin had Rowan Scarborough of the Washington Times on as a guest on last night that laid out the collusion of the Democrat party regarding the instigation, procurement, etc. of that “Golden Showers Dossier” that was so widely circulated. I need to go back and maybe find the salient points.

      Sure would be nice if the Republicans in Congress would develop a spine and start making noise about this. But with Mitch “Turkeyneck” McConnell in charge, he’ll probably ask Schmucky Schumer what to do.

      Seattle Councilman: Cleaning Poop Off Sidewalks Is Racist

      A Seattle, Wash., councilman implied that a new effort to clean excrement off the side walk outside the local courthouse could be racist Tuesday.

      The crime and smell of urine and excrement have gotten so bad outside a King County courthouse that two judges are scrambling to find ways to fix the situation, reports the Seattle Times.

      Seattle councilmember Larry Gossett isn’t a fan of one solution to power wash the feces from the sidewalks to tamp down on the smell. Power washing the sidewalks is too reminiscent of civil rights activists being hosed down, he said.

      @ lobo91:

      At some point the SJW’s have become parodies of themselves.
      DeRayngned McKesson was claiming that the new Planet of the Ape Movie, for instance, was mocking him and his signature (dumbass) blue puffy vest when one of the characters was wearing same.

      When it was pointed out the the narcissic nimrod that the ORIGINAL movie had Apes wearing blue vests, he said that “Hollywood” had contacted him and tried to soothe his ruffled feathers so he was okay with it. You know, rather than admit that he was an over-reacting asshole.

      Oh yes… and in her eagerness to to after Trump, that bastion of brilliance Joy Reid went to a NAZI website for material, and then quickly deleted it when the same was pointed out to her. But as we all know, the internet and Twitchy is forever….

      The more we’re learning about this Russian babe (Rush calls her the “Honeypot”) the more and more I’m becoming convinced that Don Jr. was being completely set up. For what, I don’t know, since no one was even hinting at so-called Russian collusion and conventional wisdom at the time was that Beastie was going to win in a landslide.

      Counter intelligence opp, Clinton/Obama were fishing to see what kind of dirt the Trump campaign had on Hillary.

      Heh heh heh, “Honeypot” is a old cold-war reference to Soviet/KGB intelligence gathering tactic of sending a very attractive innocent appearing young woman into the life of a potential intelligence target who would then manufacture a very serious compromising situation with said target an Uncle Vanya would then blackmail said target.

      I wonder if he has any idea that not a little of the CIA’s budget goes toward promulgating stories that are not just favorable to the U.S. – see the VOA – but funds half the anti-commie periodicals in south america etc. I mean, this is SOP in the intelligence world, it’s hardly news.

      There’s this very interesting twitter thread. Did you catch the recent news that analysis shows the DNC files were not hacked from the outside because the transfer rate was too slow? They think it had to have been via USB stick(s).

      Well, back in March, Kim DotCom tweeted:

      Russians didn’t do it. Stick support & DNC files came from Democratic Party insider. He was disgusted by Hillary. He did the world a favor.

      So HE knew it was a stick. Seth Rich was hardly a Dem Party insider.
