Where’s Manafort?

February 23, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

My friend Pam frets daily about Paul Manafort.  Where the hell is he, she wants to know.  She firmly believes that man is the key to something big.

I kinda dismissed it all because I am already overwhelmed with trying to figure this crap out.

Damn.

She might be right.

A purported cyberhack of the daughter of political consultant Paul Manafort suggests that he was the victim of a blackmail attempt while he was serving as Donald Trump’s presidential campaign chairman last summer.

The undated communications, which are allegedly from the iPhone of Manafort’s daughter, include a text that appears to come from a Ukrainian parliamentarian named Serhiy Leshchenko, seeking to reach her father, in which he claims to have politically damaging information about both Manafort and Trump.

Honey, this reads like a spy novel.

 

Here’s Why

People ask me why I keep watching Spicer’s press conferences if they upset me so much.

Here is my answer.

 

One day, he’s going to be saying something like this and then he’ll spontaneously combust.  It can happen.  I want to see it.

Thanks to VL for the graphic.

Important or Shiny Object?

February 10, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

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.

Mike Pence: Clueless in DeeCee

There’s this right here breaking news today.

 

 

And far more likely, there’s no contact between the Trump campaign and Mike Pence.

And in Other News…the Other Shoe

Big news days yesterday and today.  The Cheetopalooza in front of the press was, in his own words, “a disgrace”.  While calling the intelligence dossier “fake news”, and unsubstantiated, he categorically denied it.  THEN, a BBC correspondent, Paul Wood, revealed that there is a SECOND source confirming the assertions in the report:

AND, in other well timed irony, the law firm advising CJ on his conflicts, by pure coincidink, is Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, which has been named “Russia Law Firm of the Year” for 2016 by law profession directory Chambers & Partners for its “high-profile” work in Russia.

It doesn’t get any better than this.  I’m popping popcorn.

Can you imagine how difficult it has been today for conservatives today to explain to their children the meaning of golden showers?  LOL!!!

(sorry, Momma)

The 400 Lb. Russian

December 15, 2016 By: El Jefe Category: 2016 Election, Russian Hacking

I’m not a big fan of Lindsey Graham, but sometimes he delivers great lines.  Yesterday in an interview with Wolf Blitzer, he delivered one:

“If it was a 400 lb. guy, it was a 400 lb. Russian guy.”
