Trump Bad, Find a Crime, Make Him Go Away

Posted by Keeley on December 11, 2018 at 12:53 PM

Robert Mueller's report may have a lot more to do with campaign finance violations than real evidence of Russia collusion but, until it's released, we won't know. That may be fairly soon with an increasing number of leaks on what the report will possibly contain. For example, we have coming from foaming partisans like former Obama State employees Max Bergmann and Sam Berger, a piece in the Daily Beast that practically claims to be the voice of the people's will.

The Five Eyes Tried to Infiltrate Trump's Campaign

Posted by Keeley on December 5, 2018 at 7:02 PM

Michael Flynn has been waiting for just over a year to be sentenced. This after pleading guilty to a ridiculous charge that not even the FBI felt was a case of lying. The FBI were sent in by the outgoing Obama administration because of a grudge against Flynn's positions when he was part of President Obama's intel leadership as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 to 2014 when he was let go for reasons that are still not really clear despite an NYT article last March that went on about a Russian woman and the possibility that Flynn was compromised. That leak came out earlier this year. Nearly 4 years after Flynn was fired. Nor did Comey feel that Flynn had lied to the FBI investigators, apparently.

Presidents Today Can no Longer Attain George HW Bush's Values

Posted by Keeley on December 3, 2018 at 6:43 PM

You can never tell how history - that is the collective opinions of those who at some point in the future look back at an event or person and render judgement - will look back at the present and judge it.

Twitter the Trans Dominatrix & the Marxist Feminist

Posted by Keeley on November 30, 2018 at 2:36 PM

Meghan Murphy is a Canadian feminist who uses - or used - Twitter to debate and provoke people on ideas often related to gender and women's right. She's been banned from Twitter.

Why?

Apparently for "misgendering" among other transphobic thought crimes.

Adam Schiff - The Milquetoast Coyote from California

Posted by Keeley on November 26, 2018 at 6:27 PM

Adam Schiff is not on the trail, and of course he's going to be firing up a bunch of investigations as soon as he takes the gavel of the House Intelligence Committee and it seems like one of his big plans is to somehow combine the Khashoggi affair with the emoluments clause. Yes, he's going to try and link Trump's hotel with what happened in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Why the Left Should Listen to the Mexican Ambassador

Posted by Keeley on November 23, 2018 at 2:52 PM

Laredo and Tijuana, we have a problem.

But that wasn't President Trump saying it. Not this specific time, that is. It was Geronimo Gutierrez, Mexico's Ambassador that spoke frankly if somewhat cautiously about the problem of criminals infiltrating the migrant caravans from Central America which have now become both America's and Mexico's problem.

New Press Rules for White House Pressers - Will We Have a Speaker of the Press someday?

Posted by Keeley on November 21, 2018 at 7:01 PM

In Tijuana last weekend a couple of things happened, depending on what side of the border one was on. On the Mexican side, Mexicans fought a battle with riot police outside an emergency shelter set up in a sports complex, for the caravan of Central American migrants who are trying to cross into America and claim refugee status because of the high levels of crime and corruption in their countries.

Senator Flake - Would You Kindly Zip it & Vote for Neomi Rao and the rest?

Posted by Keeley on November 15, 2018 at 8:15 PM

Does Jeff Flake, the departing senator from Arizona have any proof of Russia-Trump team collusion? Or is he being a stickler about Senate oversight? Or does he just really not like Trump or his administration, or their policies especially on immigration?

The Days of Rage & Shouting Will Someday End

Posted by Keeley on November 13, 2018 at 1:28 PM

On September 11, 2001 Peter Davidson was about 6 weeks shy of his 8th birthday with a mother who still works as a nurse and a father who was a firefighter. They, of course, were - and still are - New Yorkers.

Dan Crenshaw was 17 and half years old and likely starting his last year of high school before going on to Tufts University, having grown up in Texas as well as South America.

A Sea Change on the Other Side of the Aisle

Posted by Keeley on November 8, 2018 at 1:59 PM

Both parties face a sea-change now. For the GOP, they are even more Trump's party than they were 24 hours ago. Jeff Sessions - whose early loyalty to Trump's candidacy when most people saw it as mere entertainment - is gone. Trump fired him, of course and Sessions handed in an earnest and measured letter that was old-school conservative down to the wire. If you believe there are more pressing problems than whether cannabis should be legal, and if you feel that law enforcement is vital but not should be governed by civilian rules and civility in as much as possible, then you're not too upset to see Sessions go.

A Nifty Little Chart to Explain the MidTerms!

Posted by Keeley on November 6, 2018 at 4:28 PM

By the time you read this, it may be over. Then again, by the time you read this, it may just be starting. Not that we're going to see 2000 all over again, but suddenly it appears that some Senate races got surprisingly interesting.

The Caravan - The Border With Mexico is Congress' Job

Posted by Keeley on October 31, 2018 at 3:29 PM

The caravan should arrive at the southern border weeks after the mid-term elections. But that's hardly a reason to suggest - like Shep Smith did at Fox - that people look in the mirror and shut up. Yes, the issue is being high-lighted by politicians but it's being done because it's key to how America sees itself and how the laws apply.

Why Blame Trump for Sayoc? - The Violent Rhetoric is Everywhere

Posted by Keeley on October 29, 2018 at 2:13 PM

If you had asked Oliver Stone to come up with an idea for a crazed alt-right unabomber you couldn't have done better than what reality apparently has served up. Cesar Altieri Sayoc Jr. is straight out of one of those creepy assassin films from the little we know about him so far.

A Parade of Caravans

Posted by Keeley on October 23, 2018 at 10:20 PM

Remember that photograph of what was apparently an Afghan refugee on the border between perhaps Greece and Macedonia pleading in the rain with eyes that were frightening in their desperate hostility? What was he capable of? What would we be capable of under similar circumstances?

Where Will the Khashoggi Affair Lead?

Posted by Keeley on October 17, 2018 at 2:53 PM

What can't you hang on the bloody scaffolding of the Khashoggi affair? A fascinating article in The Federalist by Lee Smith, whose investigative reporting on the various Russia probes has been thorough and enlightening, raises some important questions. What was hinted at by Matthew Continetti's editorial in the Washington Free Beacon is explored in a great deal more depth by Smith.
