Something is very wrong:

He's decompensating on live tv. His whole affect is different. This is something to worry about.

From Wiki re: that POS Miller/Roy Cohn:

Duke University's former senior vice president John Burness told The News & Observer in February 2017 that, while at Duke, Miller "seemed to assume that if you were in disagreement with him, there was something malevolent or stupid about your thinking incredibly intolerant."


Horrible human being in extremis.


Holy Crap! Ad: We are going to have four years of bad hair!! nt

I swear I just made this up:

I know whyTrump got mad at the Australians:

He heard someone say,"Put a shrimp on the Barbie.


I need people to adequately explain this to me:

In popular literature dating back to the 1930's and possizbly before, the notion of international intrigue has almost always involved elaborate conspiratorially-driven plans conceived and implemented by governments, agencies, or even rogue elements within governments. The list of novels, short stories, plays, and films is too long to mention here.

One in particular comes to mind however: in Ian Fleming's From Russia With Love, the chess master Kronsteen conceives an elaborate plot to shame the British Secret Service and the Government. Later fiction has given us even more intricate plots and the audiences cannot get enough of the machinations of our enemies, our friends, and ourselves. Sales of books and box office of films relevant to this type of material has been in the billions upon billions, but that being said, why does the American Public accept the rather offhand rejection of any plot proffered as a "Nutty Conspiracy Theory" as though it is impossible for such a notion to exist?

Does it seem radical to suggest that elements of Group A, in order to defeat Group B, might pool the resources of all types available to them and go after each other? Really?

There is no question in my mind that there exist many "someones" who are orchestrating many many plots and machinations and we will never know the origins of many issues which have come to pass here in America and elsewhere around the world. This latest move by the Russians is only the one that we are aware of publically at the present time: they are probably 14 steps ahead of us now and may be 17 steps by the time I finish writing this post. Why is it therefore, that Americans often outright refuse the notion that anyone could possibly plot against the government in groups, and regurgitate the lone-nut theories of the Kennedy era?

For the younger among us...and this is important to keep in mind...

Some reporter or Paper is gonna break this story because...

The Watergate scandal was pursued by only two mainstream papers at the time: The Post and the Times. Of course the Post was the Vanguard with Woodward (became rich, famous, and prolific as an author and TV guest) and Bernstein (became rich, famous, influential, AND is involved in this story about the guy who wast "inaugurated", as well as having married and divorced Nora Ephron(!))..

The story MADE these men and their careers. By all accounts this is a BIGGER story and will allow whoever breaks and follows it to become the most famous journalist(s) possibly ever. I can't wait...

(The Times' Sy Hersh (among others) investigated and published many remarkable Watergate articles)

Oh yes and one more thing: Mr and Mrs Carl Bernstein:


Jesus...they lied about the frigging WEATHER,like no one was watching...

i was told personally by Fmr. Ambassador Joseph Wilson that they lied like this just to "keep in shape".

You know, a scene popped into my head:

From the film Con Air:

The poignant line at the end describes my feeling st least three times a day since Election Day.

OK: Greta is on my official shit list forever

Carrying Trump's Water on MSNBC right now.
