This is what happened to the ICE hotline for reporting on aliens:

Trumps’ “VOICE” Hotline set up for people to report on crime from illegal aliens was reportedly overloaded with calls about space aliens

I think we should keep this up.

Report: Trump gave $10 million in Russian money to Jason Chaffetz when he leaked FBI letter

Now that Jason Chaffetz has announced he won’t seek reelection to Congress and has revealed that he may resign early to take a job in the private sector (link), it’s given credence to last week’s report that Russia has been blackmailing Chaffetz and the FBI knows about it. That’s also bolstered by last night’s report that a former Chaffetz staffer has confirmed the FBI investigation. But now comes another report which – if true – helps explain much of what took place during the 2016 presidential election.

The latest report comes from Lisa Garner from the site Reason and Justice, who claims that the Jason Chaffetz campaign “took $10mil donation from Trump the same day he leaked Comey letter” (link), a claim which Daily Kos is presenting as plausible (link). This may initially sound absurd, and we can’t yet find the claim corroborated elsewhere, but it does fit with some of the other details coming from more proven sources. For instance the former Chaffetz staffer asserts that the FBI is investigating him for “campaign finance fraud” (link). And last week’s report asserted that the “fraud” in question involved Russia (link). Put those together and you have Chaffetz being busted by the FBI for illegally taking Russian money.

They are looking for more corroboration. Boy would this explain a lot.

I'm sure that a lot of Secret Squirrels in intelligence services all over the world

were saying WTF when they heard what Trump said about the 'armada.'
You know there were 'eyes' on them.

BTW Armadas do not have a great historical reputation.

Rumors floating on Twitter

that Flynn is talking. The FBI got him. (from some sources that have been reliable before)
It will be interesting to see the actions of other people. If he is talking, they will be more batshit than usual.

Well, I got into it with a cretin from my alma mater.

A senior student had written a long and thoughtful essay about Clemson and how it could be improved. Basically it was about considering others more. Obviously this is not an issue confined to Clemson. She made it abundantly clear that there were many things she appreciated about the school.

I was going to respond to some of her comments but the first post I read that was sent to her caught my hair on fire. I went after that toad with both barrels.

Here is the post a middle-aged man wrote in response:
"Get a job sweetheart. Grow out of your millennial feelings into adult realities. Earn a whole lot of money in the adult world, (who doesn't care what Gannett or USA Today cares about), give it to the school, and then you will have a real voice. In the meantime, you will do better screaming your little brains out in front of Harcombe dining hall. I just love snowflakes, even the orange ones."

My answer back to him:
To begin with she's not your sweetheart. Using that term to someone you don't know is disrespectful and shows a complete lack of manners. In addition, she has every right as do others to voice their concerns whether they have a billion dollars or live paycheck to paycheck.

I would venture to say that the vast number of alums do not have the kind of money you allude to. Many give generously to Clemson and 'generously' is a relative term. Their love and concern for Clemson is as vital as it is immeasureable. Do we now line up people based on their monetary worth and listen to them in that order?

I am not naive and I know money talks. However, Clemson should make sure that the money's words don't drown out that of others. As far as calling someone a snowflake, that seems to be the cute term in vogue to label anyone who raises their voice about an issue. You have trivialized an issue that others do consider important.

You would be wise to remmber that snowflakes don't really disappear. They transform into a different force. Your obvious lack of even a basic respect for others is more telling about you than you may realize.

BTW calling him out on manners is one of the biggest insults you can level at somebody down here.
