O’Brien can spin it as something that was already going to happen, but the reality is that it was within his power to put a hold on any changes to the NSC staff until next year in order to avoid even the appearance of retaliation.

The very act of showing displeasure or rejection of our President is the truest epitome of the 1st Amendment and a foundation of this republic.

The catch is that they didn’t tell everyone up front. Had they done that, it wouldn’t have been a big deal. //

It is dishonest to make repeated allegations and then refuse to cough up the evidence they claim to be in their possession that verifies these charges. Tom, either you have the evidence or you don’t. If not, no one should believe your assertions ever again.

I think I’ve tracked all of the things:

There was no crime, it was perfect
The crimes are perfect because they’re not crimes
Obama did all those crimes
The real crimes are people who said I committed crimes even though they were perfect non-crimes
Everything against me is crimes

I just saved Ken Burns a bunch of time and money

I used to sing it as a lullaby to my son when he was an infant because the melody line fit my voice and I knew all the lyrics. ;) The simple chords are still beautiful too.

So I had some fun today… I found the contact for the sports editor of the Tuscaloosa News…

Why Alabama lost

It’s really quite simple - karma. The Alabama fans cheered for the
President* and so lost in the eyes of heaven. This is unlike the
Nationals who had fans that booed the illegitimate one and won the
World Series as a result.

My office is of the opinion that we’re going to get shut down just because he’ll t throw a temper tantrum. All part of the ‘if I’m going down, I’m going to burn down the government for spite’ reign of terror that we bureaucrats are living.

I let that one go, because (apparently) lots of people have problems with yea, yeah and yay, and at least auto-correct wouldn’t flag it.

But “Im?” Not only does pretty much everyone who made it past third grade know how “I’m” is spelled, but the red squiggly line is right there as I’m typing it.

It’s just a step up from misspelling “a” as “ayyy.”

Exclusive: U.S. withholding $105 million in security aid for Lebanon - sources Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration is withholding $105 million in security aid for Lebanon, two U.S. officials said on Thursday, two days after the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri.

The State Department told Congress on Thursday that the White House budget office and National Security Council had decided to withhold the foreign military assistance, the two officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The officials did not say why the aid was blocked. One of the sources said the State Department did not give Congress a reason for the decision.

Here we go again.

I just watched Afterlife on Netflix by Ricky Gervais, a case of black humo(u)r so dark that it is mostly just blackness. He really goes out of his way to get you to hate his character.
