I doubt it. Guys like Stephen Miller are easily replaced.

But yes, his dream is undoubtedly to come back with a bunch of Blackwater thugs, have Jake Tapper escorted out of the building, and install Kellyanne Conway as CNN’s new anchor.

Dangerous Dossier

"When asked if he knew who the Trump campaign source was, Simpson declined to answer on the basis of "security, " adding, “There are some things I know that I just don’t feel comfortable sharing because obviously it’s been in the news a lot lately that people who get in the way of the Russians tend to get hurt.”

Who is it?

How much of Trump’s health information the public gets to see is up to him, but Sanders said she expects him to release the same kind of details as past presidents.

I expect a certain amount of tongue-biting as they announce his “very stable health”.


#4226

He drew the best clock. It was so good, we replaced all the clocks with it.


#4228

Anyone up with what’s going on with Feinstein releasing a transcript of an interview about the Steele dossier? Why did she release it, what does it say, what does it mean? (I’ve seen the 200-tweet readout by Seth Abramson, but has anyone already processed that?)

A good explanation from NPR:

https://www.npr.org/2018/01/10/576899194/how-the-fusion-gps-founders-testimony-fits-in-the-russia-saga?ref=hvper.com

It’s all about credibility and the political maneuvers that happen to distort, hide or spin the truth. Feinstein just helped let the air out of the Republican efforts to try and discredit the investigation into Russian interference.


#4230

Technically a dead body has stable health. It isn’t getting any worse or better, is it?


#4231

No surprise that this is the lead story on the frontpage of Newsweek this morning

I guess this was the democrats’ strategy all along when it came to the russia thing this whole time :laughing:


#4232

John Redwood was Secretary of State for Wales at the time.

Let’s get digital! Digital! :musical_note:

"If Mueller can prove that Trump campaign officials coordinated with Russia over the hacks to influence the 2016 election, he could possibly seek a charge for “conspiracy to violate the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act,” -Axios

Mueller: “I’m sure you’ll understand my point of view
We know each other mentally
You gotta know that you’re bringin’ out
The animal in me
Let’s get digital, digital
I want to get digital
Let’s get into digital
Let me hear your body talk, your body talk
Let me hear your body talk”

That’s what they got Aaron Swartz on, correct?


#4235

Yep.

I didn’t know this about the Dutch, but it’s impressive.

When the US pulls out of the World others will fill the gaps:

"Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived Havana on Monday for his first state visit to Cuba since taking office.

In Cuba, Xi will hold talks with Cuban leader Raul Castro to draw up a blueprint for the future development of China-Cuba relations at a strategic height and from a long-term perspective.

The two sides will also sign documents of cooperation covering economy, trade, agriculture, bio-technology, culture and education."

A future Cuban missile crisis in the making?
