"Anonymous sources" now more credible than the White House

National Security Sharer H.R. McMaster's overnight flip from denying the Washington Post story about Comrade President sharing classified data with the Russians during his job interview last week, to calling this blunder critical for national security is par for course.

It is now far easier to trust just about anyone other than the White House.

Fallout from today's WH/Trumpy debacle

Can you predict who gets the can?

Another option for cutting the cord to cable:

If you have a ROKU box, have you added Pluto.tv yet? It a free channel with 75 stations.

Among it's offerings, it has 10 news stations (including a few awful ones), MST3K, Rifftrax, The Onion, a classic movie channel, and a whole lot more. It will put another nail in cable's coffin. Check it out.

Can a crazy president be removed from office?

From Cecil Adam's column, The Straight Dope:

Dear Cecil:

How crazy must the President of the United States be before it's considered cool to refuse an order? If the president orders an all-out nuclear attack on Canada, is the proper response "Yes, Mr. President,Ē or to throw the lunatic in a cell?


Dear Cecil:

What does it take to remove a sitting president who is obviously mentally ill? I don't think I need to say any more than that.


Cecil replies:

Iím starting to see a pattern to the questions Iíve been receiving lately: itís almost as though, for some reason, readers have suddenly become preoccupied with the notion of a president being psychologically unfit to serve. The good news is that a presidentís civilian and military underlings can certainly refuse to carry out illegal orders, and we likely have a constitutional procedure in place for removing a chief executive whoís no longer quite all there. The bad news? None of it's likely to help much.
