Max Boot – “If Trump isn’t actually a Russian agent, he...

Sure, Max is wrong about a lot of things but he’s right about this…. Washington Post “On Friday, the New York Times reported that “in the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.” That investigation may well be continuing under the auspices of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. We don’t know what Mueller has learned. But we can look at the key, publicly available evidence that both supports and undercuts this explosive allegation. Here is some of the evidence suggesting “Individual 1” could be a Russian “asset”:” Max then reels off his eighteen reasons der Groppenfuhrer is a Russian asshat…er… asset, all of which are familiar to most here — his financial entanglements with Moscow, the many meeting his surrogates sought with Russsin officials etc…etc…. — but which might have escaped notice by a casual reader. It’s good however to have them compiled in one place and by a conservative at that. I have bookmarked the article for future reference. Max’s concluding paragraphs fit the usage parameters, however, and I will include them here: “In his own defense, Trump claims he has been tougher on Russia “than any other President,” but literally in the next sentence he says, “getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing.” When the United States actually has taken steps to get tough with Russia in the past two years, it has usually been the work of Congress (the 2017 Russia sanctions bill) or Trump aides (expelling 60 Russian diplomats). The Post reports that Trump was “furious” when his administration was portrayed as being tough on Russia, and NBC News reports that he instructed subordinates never to publicly discuss plans to sell weapons to Ukraine. This is hardly a “beyond a reasonable doubt” case that Trump is a Russian agent — certainly not in the way that Robert Hanssen or Aldrich Ames were. But it is a strong, circumstantial case that Trump is, as former acting CIA director Michael Morell and former CIA director Michael V. Hayden warned during the 2016 campaign, “an unwitting agent of the Russian federation” (Morell) or a “useful fool” who is “manipulated by Moscow” (Hayden). If Trump isn’t actually a Russian agent, he is doing a pretty good imitation of one.” That’s about the only thing he’s doing good, Max. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

I May Not Know Art But I Know What I Like....

Jim Carrey was pressed for time and couldn’t get around to colorizing his latest drumpf drawing, so he challenged his followers… And some of the results were spectacular: This one from Russia was animated! Gotta love that brogan in the booty! That same guy did a nice cleanse also… And got an offer… This one adopted a Edvard Munch palette. Gotta love the representation of pain by red in this one: You did great, Maria! Our top photo artiste…. Jackson Pollock represented… the do do do do da da da… Color pencil is good. Other users, less artistic, were just funny. Fun was had by all! Good job, Jim! You wanna try? Good Luck!

Charles P. Pierce Points to A Telling Word in The NY...

(This post is exclusive for readers here at PolitiZoom) Charles P. Pierce writes in the English language passably well for someone who spends so much time watching sports with an ale at his elbow in Boston drinking establishments. He reads English at least as passably well as evidenced by his latest in Esquire Magazine. Charles notes, not without some glee and an easily imagined rubbing of his hands in righteous long unrequited anticipation, that the recent NY Times article on the opening of an FBI criminal and counter intelligence investigation into the criminal and counter intelligent activities within the Russian-aided campaign of America’s stupidest to date *Resident, Donald J. Trump, had one word inserted into it like a .44 caliber dumdum bullet pointed straight at the heart of dumbdumb drumpf’s rapidly imploding world. “Deep in The New York Times’s latest bombshell is one singularly deadly word, a lethal bit of shrapnel aimed directly at the vitals of a criminal—and possibly treasonous—presidency. The word is tucked into a sentence that, at first glance, seems to be a perfectly anodyne statement of the current facts. Indeed, it’s tucked into a sentence that would be an unremarkable bit of knee-jerk newspaper balance if this explosive charge of a word weren’t placed right the in the middle of it. That word is “publicly,” as in:”  Pierce then quotes the Times: “No evidence has emerged publicly that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials. The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence. The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice. Agents and senior F.B.I. officials had grown suspicious of Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign but held off on opening an investigation into him, the people said, in part because they were uncertain how to proceed with an inquiry of such sensitivity and magnitude. But the president’s activities before and after Mr. Comey’s firing in May 2017, particularly twoinstances in which Mr. Trump tied the Comey dismissal to the Russia investigation, helped prompt the counterintelligence aspect of the inquiry, the people said.” Pirce maintains that the word “publicly” was not chosen idly. In fact he surmises that the august Grey Lady would not load such a weapon to no use and concludes: “Otherwise, “publicly” is empty verbiage. To have written simply that, “No evidence has emerged that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government official,” would have sufficed for the purposes of journalistic balance. But by dropping that fatal “publicly” in there, the Times and its sources likely are giving us a preview of coming attractions. (Judging by his manic episode on the electric Twitter machine on Saturday morning, the president* knows this, too.) And the one thing about which we can all be sure is that is whole megillah is nowhere near as weird as it’s going to get.” From your bar-stool to God’s ear, Charlie.

About That Oval Office Meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak…Putin Asked/Told drumpf...

Susan Glasser at Politico confirms what many of us suspected all along, that Putin had directed dumbass to invite Boris and Natasha to come for a photo-op in the Oval…. “The chummy White House visit—photos of the president yukking it up with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak were released by the Russian Foreign Ministry since no U.S. press was allowed to cover the visit—had been one of Putin’s asks in his recent phone call with Trump, and indeed the White House acknowledged this to me later Wednesday. “He chose to receive him because Putin asked him to,” a White House spokesman said of Trump’s Lavrov meeting. “Putin did specifically ask on the call when they last talked.” The meeting was Lavrov’s first in the White House since 2013—and came after several years of the Obama administration’s flat-out refusal to grant him an Oval Office audience, two former senior White House officials told me. “The Russians were begging us for years to do that,” one of the former officials said. “They were constantly pushing for it and we were constantly saying no.” The images of Trump putting his arm genially on Lavrov’s back—and a later White House official readout of the meeting that said Trump “emphasized his desire to build a better relationship between the United States and Russia”—couldn’t have come at a more fraught political moment for Trump, amid a barrage of bipartisan criticism of his firing of FBI Director James Comey. On Wednesday morning before meeting with Trump, Lavrov even cracked a joke about his hosts’ political predicament, laughingly claiming not to have heard of the Comey firing while standing alongside Trump’s secretary of state, Rex Tillerson. In other words, Lavrov was right where he has always wanted to be Wednesday: mocking the United States while being welcomed in the Oval Office by the president himself.” The only question I ever had was why Putin insisted on the meeting a that particular time, coming so hard on the firing of Comey that it was like rubbing salt in the wound. Either he had a pressing need for the Israeli intel that drumpf so obligingly offered up, or his goal was to stir up maximum outrage here in the States.

Maddow Reports Mnuchin “complained” about Briefing House Leaders for a whole...

Rachel Maddow reported last night that after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin finished  briefing a bipartisan group of House members yesterday about the admin’s decision to drop sanctions against Manafort’s BFF Oleg Deripaska, he complained to reporters about having having to take a whole 1½ hours out of his Snidely Whiplash day to schlep up to the Hill and explain himself. (I couldn’t find any news stories on this, but you can hear Rachel report it starting at 3:56 in the video below….) This will no doubt cause a thousand tiny violins to be broken out by HRC supporters who remember her her 11 hour grilling by the Republican House’s Benghazi Committee which led to exactly no conclusions being found and no charges brought. Poor Steve, being called away from playing with our money…. …to answer for actions that will financially benefit a Russian Oligarch who likely tampered with our 2016 election. HRC could have done an hour and a half standing on her head… …………………………………………………………………………………………. To receive articles of mine not published elsewhere become a patron on Patreon.
