White House spokesperson reads premeditated lie from the podium about the Russia probe

Sarah Huckabee Sanders lies daily and comfortably and so it’s a little odd to find an instance of her lying that’s noteworthy. But Sanders outdid herself during Thursday’s briefing—reading a pre-written answer from the podium that included a blatant...

Trump’s unqualified choice to be NASA chief runs into turbulence

Mike Pence and Brother Violate Emoluments Clause to Pay Tribute To Mob Boss Trump

Maybe the ghosts of Mike Pence’s ancestors, or somebody’s, are getting stirred up in Ireland, because for a simple diplomatic visit, it has turned into a real can of worms. First, Pence got raked over the coals when his deputy press secretary touted the fact that Mike and Mother Pence would be having lunch with Leo Varadkar and his husband, ergo, Mike Pence is not anti-gay. Now, while that controversy was still smoking, more fat got thrown on the fire Tuesday morning, when it was learned that Pence will be staying at Donald Trump’s Doonbeg property, when his meeting with Varadkar is on the other side of Ireland, in Dublin. And guess who picks up the tab for the helicopters, security etc.? That’s right, moi et toi. While in Ireland, VP Pence is staying in Trump's golf resort. Which is in Doonbeg (red pin). His official duties are in Dublin, which is literally the opposite side of the country. Apart from enriching the President, what is the purpose of running up taxpayer costs like this? pic.twitter.com/30QyxI5WXb — Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) September 3, 2019 In the mafia there’s a concept known as “kicking up” or “paying tribute” to the Boss – lining the Boss’s pockets to keep him happy. The Boss doesn’t have to explicitly ask; it’s understood. Now we’ve got both @VP Pence and AG Barr spending thousands patronizing Trump hotels. https://t.co/8XKgnco8lt — Elie Honig (@eliehonig) September 3, 2019 The Pences are from Doonbeg, eh? Well, who knows. Back when Brett Kavanaugh was getting confirmed I happened to encounter a Twitter thread of Esquire’s Charlie Pierce. Some people from Ireland were tweeting with Pierce and stating their opinion of how Kavanaugh’s ancestors used to steal sheep and then that led to a dialogue of how Mike Pence’s people were landlords for the British, and the Curse of Cromwell was upon him. There are enemies and there are enemies, and the enemy you wish the Curse of Cromwell upon is really your enemy. In all events, Pence enriching Trump’s coffers is nothing new at all. His PAC, Great America Committee, has spent $224,000 at Trump properties, chiefly the Trump International Hotel and it’s steakhouse, and you’ll love this: his congressman brother, Greg, was illegally living there and the PAC was picking up the tab. Daily Beast: Such spending appears to be a family affair. Pence’s brother, freshman Rep. Greg Pence (R-IN), has also dropped considerable sums at the Trump hotel. In fact, Rep. Pence’s campaign amended a number of FEC filings this year after USA Today noted that the campaign appeared to be illegally paying for the congressman to live at the Trump hotel. The Pence campaign said those expenses were reported incorrectly, and amended FEC filings accordingly. As of March, when Rep. Pence’s campaign reported its latest Trump property expenditure, the campaign had spent about $45,000 at the president’s businesses. The spending by the Pence brothers reflects a broader trend taking place throughout the Republican Party, where officials are doling out campaign cash to properties and businesses associated with the president. But the vice president is a particularly prolific Trump property patron. Only the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee have spent more at Trump businesses than Pence’s PAC during the 2020 election cycle. This is standard operating procedure for Mike Pence.

Breaking: Trump Just Fired John Bolton

Maybe John Bolton didn’t like the idea of a Taliban sleepover on 9/11 — your guess is as good as mine. In any event, National Security Adviser (Trump misspelled the title) John Bolton is through the West Wing revolving door. ….I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2019 Mike Pence is probably none too happy about this, nor feeling none too secure. If you read CNN yesterday, Pence and Bolton were both adamantly against the Taliban meeting. Trump of course said that the story was fake news, but he also probably figured that the only way the story leaked was either through Pence or Bolton. And since he can’t fire Pence, maybe he fired Bolton. Of course, Trump could take Pence off the 2020 ticket. Who knows? Meanwhile, the only word from Bolton is that he wasn’t fired, that he “offered to resign last night.” Hoe kay… More on this story as it develops.
