From the Guardian here:
On Capitol Hill, Kavanaugh’s supporters suggested Ford may have “mistaken” the identity of her attacker. ’”.
That is some powerful white magic dust right there. Somebody steps in and floats the idea for her that she mistook him for someone else.
They weren’t there, but they feel comfortable making a statement like that based on nothing. Literally nothing.
I’m sure she feels confident enough to testify in front of these pricks.
From the Daily Beast here:
But one of his tactics, Mueller reveals, was to get what Manafort described “in a contemporaneous communication [as] ‘[O]bama jews’” to pressure the Obama administration in October 2012.
The scheme was to tie Tymoshenko to antisemitism through association. Manafort got “a senior Israeli government official to issue a written statement publicizing this story.” That’s a reference to a statement from then-Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, a hardliner who is now defense minister, as noted by journalist Noga Tarnopolsky. The story was published by Ben Shapiro at Breitbart, as first reported by The Guardian’s Luke Harding. Manafort, “with secret advance knowledge of that Israeli statement,” bragged as he shopped it around the U.S., “I have someone pushing it on the NY Post. Bada bing bada boom.”
Get a bullshit story published at Breitbart, a website not worthy of wiping one’s own ass with.
Get an isane piece of shit Israeli official to comment on the story.
Get the New York Post to write an article about the Israeli official commenting on a bullshit article — voila, fake news!!
Political pressure gets applied to Obama.
This is the same exact shit that was done on Facebook during the 2016 election. Write a piece of shit Hillary Clinton running a child sex ring — run ads and get likes for the article, and voila it appears in everybody’s feed!
Headline from the Nation:
After Donald Trump America will still be in crisis
From the Guardian:
The vice-president, Mike Pence, was sent to the Sunday talkshows to defend Trump, which he did with characteristic vigour, volunteering to take a lie detector test to show he had not written the essay himself and insisting the 25th amendment had never been discussed. Pence and Conway suggested the op-ed constituted a threat to national security.
This is why America should fear President Pence. He is a fucking liar. He is a politician strongly allied with the Koch/Cock Brothers and the Cock Brothers only work with liars and psychopaths.
He is dying to be President and is willing to bide his time as a loyal sycophant to President SkidMark til he’s taken out on a stretcher made of his own illegal financial transactions.
Lastly, the threat of national security should be retired. It is tired and has been used by warmongers for far too long to control the actions of others.
Nothing can change because it’s a threat to national security. As I’ve been blogging recently it is yet another example of the childish politics of America. We have the mightiest and bloated military in the world yet everything is threat to national security?
In conclusion, fuck Pence and fuck national security.
From the Nation:
The outgoing mayor’s legacy will be defined by austerity, privatization, displacement, gun violence, and police brutality.
He was Obama’s chief of staff if I remember correctly.
Either Obama shares more views with Emmanuel and is able to hide it better or I don’t know.
People love Obama he he was for austerity and displacement and drone strikes and bailing out Wall Street.
Yet people love the brother, it’s really an accomplishment.
And remember Rahm Emmanuel is a world class dick.
