Don’t have video yet but I hope she encored with this one for Mike Flynn and Sergei Kislyak…

Space Force is Yesterday’s News. Dotard Introduces New Branch – “Infantroopen.”

(Above – Cute…and deadly.) And they say Robert Mueller provided some bad optics…. Is Trump an idiot who can’t read or a dotard who nonsensically combines words? Twitter has some opinions. Please follow me on Twitter @durrati

GOP Chair McDaniel Mailed Seth Moulton a Flag As a Rebuke...

GOP Chair Ronna Rmoney McDaniel sent U.S. Representative and Democratic presidential candidate Seth Moulton a U.S. flag, along with a copy of The Flag Code and a snarky put down letter, exhorting him to respect the flag…unlike the dumb as dirt GOPeers who folded and displayed it improperly in the mailed package. You can read the letter by clicking on his tweet here. Of course, as no one in your family has served in the military like Moulton, you wouldn’t know how to fold it, huh Ronna? Here’s a clue: Freaking morans. Please follow me on Twitter @durrati

Adam Serwer: Mueller Hearing “lacked a compelling musical number.”

So, the press, which has steadfastly refused to call Trump exactly what he is — a liar, a thief, a cheating pro-Putin provocateur that has more loyalty to his freaking golf courses than his country, and the intellectual acuity of a rhesus monkey high on methamphetamine, has no reticence about calling out Robert Mueller for his measured, well considered testimony during which he said extremely damning things about the shit-gibbon, but with little of the theatrical and emotive histrionics editors crave to drive circulation. Atlantic Magazine staff writer Adam Serwer calls them out… And, as in an episode of Game of Thrones, when the surviving gather to burn what remains of the once storied American Republic, idiots like Chuck Todd, Brian Williams… ..and Micheal Moore… …can be the torch bearers that ignite the consuming conflagration with their idiotic hot takes.

Full Text of Adam Schiff’s Opening Statement Today.

Chairman of The House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff’s opening statement today: “Your report, for those who have taken the time to study it, is methodical and it is devastating, for it tells the story of a foreign adversary’s sweeping and systematic intervention in a close U.S.presidential election. That should be enough to deserve the attention of every American, as you well point out. But your report tells another story as well. For the story of the 2016 presidential election is also a story about disloyalty to country, about greed, and about lies. Your investigation determined that the Trump campaign – including Trump himself – knew that a foreign power was intervening in our election and welcomed it, built Russian meddling into their strategy, and used it.   Disloyalty to country. Those are strong words, but how else are we to describe a presidential campaign which did not inform the authorities of a foreign offer of dirt on their opponent, which did not publicly shun it, or turn it away, but which instead invited it, encouraged it, and made full use of it?   That disloyalty may not have been criminal. Constrained by uncooperative witnesses, the destruction of documents & the use of encrypted communications, your team was not able to establish each of the elements of the crime of conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt, so not a provable crime, in any event. But, I think, maybe,something worse.   A crime is the violation of a law written by Congress. But disloyalty to country violates the very obligation of citizenship, our devotion to a core principle on which our nation was founded: That we, the people, not some foreign power that wishes us ill, we decide,who shall govern, us.   This also a story about money, about greed and corruption, about the leadership of a campaign willing to compromise the nation’s interest not only to win, but to make money at the same time. About a campaign chairman indebted to pro-Russian interests who tried to use his position to clear his debts and make millions. About a national security advisor using his position to make money from still other foreign interests. And about a candidate trying to make more money than all of them, through a real estate project that to him, was worth a fortune, hundreds of millions of dollars, and the realization of a lifelong ambition – a Trump Tower in the heart of Moscow. A candidate who, in fact, viewed his whole campaign as the greatest infomercial in history. Donald Trump and his senior staff were not alone in their desire to use the election to make money. For Russia, too, there was a powerful financial motive. Putin wanted relief from U.S. economic sanctions imposed in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and over human rights violations. The secret Trump Tower meeting between the Russians and senior campaign officials was about sanctions. The secret conversations between Flynn and the Russian ambassador were about sanctions. Trump and his team wanted more money for themselves, and the Russians wanted more money for themselves, and for their oligarchs. But the story doesn’t end here either. For your report also tells a story about lies. Lots of lies. Lies about a gleaming tower in Moscow and lies about talks with the […]

LOL – “That’s a Ginsburn.”

So as we await the inscrutable Bob Mueller to testify some more inscrutability, let’s share a laugh. Here’s a full on belly laugh from this wonderful NPR interview of RGB titled Justice Ginsburg: ‘I Am Very Much Alive’ And, if you haven’t sufficiently bespeckled your monitor yet, enjoy… For the love of Spaghetti Monster, don’t miss the replies that commeth.

North Korea Releases Photos of Kim Inspecting New SLBM. (Submarine Launched...

In lieu of another “beautiful” letter, North Korea’s state media today released photos of what appears to be a Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile Submarine, which it says is nearly ready for deployment. Commentators on Twitter noted that the photos had been cropped to leave out the top of the sub, where relevant missile launching hardware would be placed, and that the steel plating sheathing the sub seems a but pieced together, unlike the smooth hulled U.S. SSBMs. One called it the “Spruce Goose” of missile submarines. Nevertheless, this is a significant development. CNN “Analysts said the Kim regime has sought to build a viable nuclear-armed submarine to enhance its deterrence capabilities, as the vessels are hard for adversaries to track and destroy. The regime successfully test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) in 2016… …Dave Schmerler, a senior research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, said the images suggested that the sub under construction is much larger than the one used in 2016. “If this submarine is built for carrying and launching SLBMs it is more than likely that they would test it, to ensure that it works the way they would need it to,” Schmerler said.” It is possible that the “beautiful” photos were released to tweak Trump, whom the DPRK says is reneging on promises not to go ahead with joint military drills with the south. “North Korea said Trump committed to suspending joint military exercises during his first meeting with Kim in Singapore, and hinted that it could renege on its decision to stop testing nuclear weapons and intercontinental-range ballistic missiles should the drills go ahead…. …”Our discontinuation of the nuclear and ICBM tests and the US suspension of joint military exercises are, to all its intents and purposes, commitments made to improve bilateral relations. They are not a legal document inscribed on a paper,” North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said.” Still, they are “beautiful, beautiful” pictures Lil Kim. Perhaps you could enclose some copies in a big ass envelope and mail them to your paramour with a big S.W.A.K. emblazoned on the back? I’m sure he would love them.

We May Be More Screwed. Trump Might Be Considering Nunes to...

This is bad: Coats has made noise about Russian interference in 2020 and tried to put safeguards in place. Nunes will throw open the damn door.

Boom! Gretna, La. Cop Who Posted AOC “deserves a round” Is...

Gretna, Louisiana police officer Charlie Rispoli who posted a fake news story about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and commented she “needs a round”…and I don’t mean the kind she used to serve.” has been fired, along with a fellow office who “liked” the post, after an apparent “tidal wave” of protest rolled into the Gretna Police Department over the weekend. Nola.com “The Gretna Police Department fired two officers Monday after an incident in which one posted a comment on Facebook last week that suggested U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be shot. The author of the post, Charlie Rispoli, and another officer who “liked” it, Angelo Varisco, have been fired, Gretna police chief Arthur Lawson announced at a press conference Monday afternoon. “This incident, we feel, has been an embarrassment to our department,” he said. “These officers have certainly acted in a manner which was unprofessional, alluding to a violent act be conducted against a sitting U.S. (congresswoman), a member of our government (and) we are not going to tolerate that.” Chief Lawson was surprised that any of his officers could be so stupid, particularly after his Dept. had printed out warnings explaining that Philadelphia had taken 72 officers off the street because of similar social media abuse. Lawson did the right thing here, but he also volunteered that an outpouring of public outrage had informed his decision. “Lawson also noted that his office was besieged by phone calls over he weekend, calling the incident “a ripple in a pond that became a tidal wave.” And made excuses for the officer: “Lawson denied requests by the media to release photos of Rispoli and Varisco. He repeated that he does not think the post constituted a legitimate threat. He said he spoke to both officers, and described Rispoli as remorseful and as a typically mild-mannered person who made a bad decision “in the heat of the moment.” Congratulations to all that called or emailed to put the heat on the Chief to do some housecleaning. Now he needs to flag the offender’s file to make sure the punishment sticks and Rispoli and his cohort are not hired to wear a badge in the next parish over. They have no business in law enforcement. But it sounds like they’d fit right into Trump’s DHS…
