Damn you Obama! Hillary's emails!
Gene Simmons (yes, THAT Gene Simmons) gives a briefing at the Pentagon. https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/16/media/gene-simmons-pentagon-briefing/index.html
Lick it up!
He hires the best people.
It's a type of speedwagon.
whatever happened to them?
At a guess, progress?
Most transparently corrupt President in history.
They did not roll with the changes and it became time for them to fly.
This is who Republicans are.
^Right, just the right does that.
Very interesting to keep an eye on if true. 'Cronyism' should be outed and punished whenever possible.
But it doesn't even become real news until (1) Fisher wins the contract, and (2) there's evidence Fisher wasn't the best bid. Till then it's just anger-based clickbait, which frequently is presented as news these days.
at this point, as much as he is on one level a clown, he is long long past being a joke.
Barr wants to know more about the CIA’s informants in Russia and what they passed along about the 2016 interference. Sources are among the CIA’s most closely held secrets
Consider: if in fact the CIA used disloyal sources in Russia to confirm Putin's actions...and IF those closely held sources are disclosed publicly or even to Trump...how many minutes until Putin has issued order for their death? 10? 5? 2?
And here Dayton once again rushes to the defense of the president he claims to loathe.
He may be the biggest Trump felcher of the bunch, which is saying something.
No, you see he doesn't support Trump in any way, shape or form because OMG there's not enough space battles in this version of Trek that he's not watching. Wait, no, don't take him seriously on that, because despite the fact that he's been bitching about it for 20+ years, he's never meant any of it. Because Jebus, or some dead little old lady on the side of the road that he murdered. I can't remember, but you know what I mean.
Trump apologist logic: "It doesn't matter how many crimes he attempts, as long as somebody stops him!"
Does anyone with the slightest bit of intellectual honesty believe that this wouldn't have been a headline-dominating scandal under any other administration?
a simple illustration for understanding Trump and Trumpublican defenders:
Trump repeatedly claims that investigations initiated 7+ months BEFORE he was elected, indeed before he had clinched the nomintation, constitute both an attempted coup AND treason against the United States.
Laying aside that the actions in question, even if they had been motivated by anti-Trump bias which no evidence has established, do not remotely resemble the dictionar or legal definition of either word, YOU CAN'T STAGE A MOTHERFUCKING COUP AGAINST A MAN WHO HOLDS NO PUBLIC OFFICE!
You cannot commit treason against a private individual. There's NO SUCH FUCKING THING.
Nevertheless, not only do millions of Deplorables find his claims perfectly believable, but the media doesn't lead every single story about this bullshit with "this is, of course, a completely insane claim" and the GOP in Congress has no comment at all (except for a few like Liz Cheney who go on national TV and repeat the same insanely impossible bullshit while Chuck Todd just nods as if it's a fair point).
Oh, and bonus points? consider this: "I know, we'll stage a coup against future president Trump, whom we believe has zero possibility of winning, by gathering evidence that we will keep entirely to ourselves while we regularly chase cameras to remind voters how awful Hillary Clinton is! What a brilliant plan! We cannot possibly fail!"
Ooh! Ooh! I can! I can!
Unless you get captured. He doesn't like soldiers who get captured.
nice broad brush job there!
Right now the congressional Republicans are generally in lockstep, with one or two outliers who get excoriated on Fox News. So he's not wrong.
