About Me

There are strange things done 'neath the midnight sun By the men who moil for gold. The arctic trails have their secret tales That would make your blood run cold. The northern lights have seen queer sights, But the queerest they ever did see Was that night on the marge of Lake LeBarge I cremated Sam McGee.

NY Times Ben Carson Defends Buying $31,000 Dining Set to Congress: I Left It to My Wife


WASHINGTON — Ben Carson, the secretary of housing and urban development, told a House committee on Tuesday that he had “dismissed” himself from the decision to buy a $31,000 dining room set for his office last year, leaving the details to his wife and staff.


The hearing, before the House Appropriations subcommittee that determines the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s budget, was supposed to center on the administration’s proposed budget cuts to the agency. Instead it was dominated by questions about Mr. Carson’s judgment, the conduct of his wife, Candy Carson, and son Ben Carson Jr., and Mr. Carson’s initial denial that he was aware of the expenditure, a position he has modified.

“I was not big into redecorating. If it were up to me, my office would look like a hospital waiting room,” said Mr. Carson, who repeatedly told committee members that he had no knowledge of the $5,000 limit imposed on cabinet secretaries for redecorating their offices — despite the release of emails between top aides discussing how to justify getting around the cap.

Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon with no prior government experience, said the decision to replace the furniture was made in the interest of safety rather than redecorating.


"Safety, That's the ticket." Besides it was my wife's fault.

Rep. Swalwell to Trump: "You Will Be Fired Soon"

After the disgraceful firing of Andrew McCabe, Pres. Dennison tweeted this:

“Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!”

Today, Representative Eric Swalwell fired back:

“Gloat now, but you will be fired soon. And it’s not going to be done cowardly, as you’ve done to so
many who’ve served you. There’s a storm gathering, Mr. President, and it’s going to wipe out you
and your corrupt organization all the way down to the studs.”


If it was shown that Don Trump paid for an abortion for Stormy Daniels* .....

..... would the evangelicals still support him?

* or anybody else too .... I have no doubt that Trump has paid for an abortion in the past.

Trump's AM tweet and lie storm "... and Zero Republicans?"


"Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters,
and Zero Republicans?"

Except that Bob Mueller is a life long republican and he was picked by Rod Rosenstein who is a republican too.

Vanessa Trump hires criminal defense attorney for Donald Jr. divorce

Vanessa Trump has hired a criminal defense attorney to represent her in her divorce from Donald Trump Jr. just as special counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed the presidents family business.

White Plains, NY-based lawyer David Feureisen is representing Vanessa, according to paperwork filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.


Despite that, Feureisen clearly does practice criminal defense and most notably secured the release of a New York man named Anthony DiSimone from federal prison in 2007 after a judge overturned a murder conviction related to a bar fight in 1994.

Inside the marriage of Vanessa and Donald Trump Jr.
Don Jr.s been running his father, President Donald Trumps, business, The Trump Organization, while hes in office. The presidents oldest son had also met with a Russian lawyer who was promising but did not deliver dirt on Hillary Clinton at Trump Tower in 2016.

And what did the US Government do to the Rosenbergs who sold out America to Russia (Soviet Union)?

They executed them. The people who worked with Russia in order to fix our elections need to wind
up in the super max prison in Colorado. It was and still is treason and we had a coup.


Paul Ryan Keeps It All in the Family

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy said, according to Entous, a superb reporter who heard a tape recording of the colloquy. “Swear to God.”


In the Post piece, McCarthy’s remark is met with laughter, and Ryan cautions his colleagues, “This is an off the record . . . No leaks! . . . All right?”


And then, amid more laughter, Ryan says, “This is how we know we’re a real family here.”

“That’s how you know that we’re tight,” Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, says.

“What’s said in the family stays in the family,” Ryan concludes.
