Important or Shiny Object?

The Republicans have a brilliant plan.  They do something dirty nasty horrible to try to kill democracy and then they wave bright shiny things in my face to keep me from remembering the dirty nasty horrible thing to destroy democracy that they did in the first place.

I am easily distracted by shiny crap. I know that because I can go driving around looking at Christmas lights and never really remember any of them individually because I’m distracted by the house across the street before I commit any of them to memory.

So ….

I am wondering, is this Important or is it Shiny Crap? Michael Flynn palling-around with the Russians.

Reuters reported last month, citing three sources familiar with the matter, that Flynn had held five phone calls with Kislyak on Dec. 29, the day then-President Barack Obama retaliated for Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The Post said Flynn on Wednesday denied that he had discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador, but on Thursday backed away from the denial through a spokesman.

You know, that would be kinda bad, especially since President Obama fired Flynn for being a hysterical, Chicken Little whiny butt jackass.  Did Flynn call Russia and say, “Don’t worry about the black guy because we can fix this?”

It sounds like a really big deal but only because I think it may be a trinket on the Christmas tree of Russian interference in our election.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

Look, all I can figure is that he grabbed Bannon by the pussy and is now being extorted.

The New York Times, tucked neatly in a long story so that most people will overlook it.

Mr. Priebus bristles at the perception that he occupies a diminished perch in the West Wing pecking order compared with previous chiefs. But for the moment, Mr. Bannon remains the president’s dominant adviser, despite Mr. Trump’s anger that he was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving his chief strategist a seat on the National Security Council, a greater source of frustration to the president than the fallout from the travel ban.

(Italics are mine because I can’t stop reading that sentence over and over and over.)

Wait a minute. Are they saying that Bannon put himself on the National Security Council?  Without Trump’s permission? And that Trump has no idea what he’s signing? Hellfire, even Radar O’Reilly didn’t have the gall to do that.

On another topic: I know you’re not supposed to make fun of the way people look.  But, Bannon looks like he smells bad.  And you get the idea that he’s not just a slob himself but that he’s a slob at home, too.  I will bet you my best pair of pink boots that the worst job in America is the cleaning crew at Bannon’s home. I shiver just thinking about it.

Somebody needs to send this guy back to Breitbart and the subhuman culture over there where people don’t pick their noses and wipe it on their dinner napkin.

Thanks to Deb for the heads up.

The New Head of National Security of the United States

Steve Bannon – white supremacist, anti-Semite.  Professional alt-right propagandist and liar. Permanent member of the National Security Council.

I’m so proud.  Aren’t you?

Professional Plagiarism

Well, you’ve heard that alleged president elect Trump’s nominee for senior director of strategic communications for the National Security Council, Monica Crowley, plagiarized large portion of her book.

Well, come to find out, she also plagiarized large portions of her PhD dissertation.

But making money off other people’s work is what the 1% does.

Despite the news, the Trump team continues to support the appointment. “Any attempt to discredit Monica is nothing more than a politically motivated attack that seeks to distract from the real issues facing this country,” a transition spokesperson told CNN. The transition team did not reply to requests for comment for this story.

Her appointment to the National Security Council does not require Senate confirmation, but simply the nod of approval from Melania Trump.
