New York Magazine reported today that George W. Bush gave a short assessment of the inaugural ceremony after leaving the dias:
“That was some weird shit.”
(Sorry Momma) For the first time in memory, I find myself agreeing with GWB.
Newsweek is now reporting that FBI director James Comey tried to go public last summer in an editorial exposing Russian interference in the presidential election. The overly cautious Obama White House said no. After it became so obvious in the early fall, Obama finally consulted the goddam Republicans about the hacking, who predictably chose party over country, so blatant interference was allowed to continue through election day. The worst case scenario resulted.
So, should we now add Obama to the list of people to blame for the catastrophe and daily slow train wreck unfolding on national television?
Unfortunately, methinks yes.
Steve Stockman used to be our favorite crazy East Texas Congressman until he got beat and Louie Gohmert blossomed forth as Texas Crazy Proud.
As I told you last week, Stockman finally got his due. But there’s a cherry on top.
It’s a 28 count indictment and his former aide, the particularly sleazy Jason Posey, was indicted to. Here’s the cherry.
According to the indictment, from May 2010 to October 2014, Stockman sought out about $1.25 million in donations based on false pretenses. Over those years, Stockman allegedly diverted part of that sum for personal and campaign expenses — including to fund what the U.S. Department of Justice described as “a covert surveillance project targeting a perceived political opponent.”
I thought it was just converting campaign contributions to personal use, but no. It’s a million dollars. He’s going to jail. You might get probation for misusing a hundred grand in campaign donations but … a million dollars from charity? Nope, you’re going to jail.
As far back as 2013, it all looked suspicious.
But Stockman maintains that he’s pure as Ivory soap and just as white. What’s his alibi?
Stockman has said he will be vindicated in the case. He initially blamed his arrest on the “deep state,” a term used to describe political adversaries in the federal bureaucracy that has gained prominence under President Donald Trump. His lawyers have since distanced themselves from that claim.
Yep, the deep state was out to get a congressman who had his campaign headquarters in an abandoned building. Seriously, you gotta look for yourself. That’s his campaign headquarters over to the right.
Thanks to everybody for the heads up.
Regular customers know that the only thing I like better than politics is baseball. I flat love baseball.
Well, the current occupant of the White House is breaking a 100 year tradition of presidents throwing out the first pitch of the season. He turned down the opportunity to throw out the first pitch for the Nationals.
He’s claiming he has a scheduling conflict. I doubt that. He doesn’t do anything. He doesn’t have a schedule. Jared Kutcher has a schedule. Trump does not.
Here’s what everybody thinks. He got 4% of the vote in Washington, Dee Cee. His approval rating is now 36% nationwide. He would be booed at the ballpark and his precious little snowflake ego couldn’t take that. Maybe he could wear his red baseball cap and make everybody laugh. The man needs guts lessons from April Ryan.
Or maybe the problem is that the only thing he can throw is a fit.
Holy damn crap.
House Republicans voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to repeal a set of landmark privacy protections for Web users, issuing a sweeping rebuke of Internet policies enacted under the Obama administration. It also marks a sharp, partisan pivot toward letting Internet providers collect and sell their customers’ Web browsing history, location information, health data and other personal details.
