    Tom and Philippa and others.

    Yes, I decided to stay away from PHON because clearly there are other power plays at hand.

    I couldn’t even get face to face with them. I work in retail in a small outfit from 8 till 5. I needed an interview outside of these hours. Ooops! Apparently that was a big no-no!

    The email exchanges are plain wierd. Philippa, I might send you a couple if you are interested?

    Anyway lets see what they do. I could not now, in all consciousness vote for them.

    There would however be a stamp in Cohen’s passport by US immigration of when he left and when he returned.

    Unless it was a covert mission which is more than likely.

    Any gun/military Cats heard of this?

  4. C.L.

    Has Joe Biden bowed out without molesting some senator’s 8 year-old daughter?

  5. We do. It was alleged Cohen went to Prague to settle payment for the hacking. It was one of the major accusations that was made. This wasn’t true, so we know it’s all bullshit.

    It was their “they faked the moon landings coz there’s no stat’s in the background” moment. Once you realise one is a false assumption, you realise that they all must be.

    I bet someone’s taking money off someone else who couldn’t believe the Left would be so stupid as to fall for something so obviously made up. Money for jam.

    Anyone who read the ‘leaked’ dossier and believed it is a fucking A grade moron. Of course it’s fake.

    The geo-tags on Cohen’s Twitter account show he was in the US all of Ausgust.

    Wow! Whoever planned the operation did a great job of faking his tweets and using a proxy server.

    So it’s over then, right.

    Here’s the thing…the report was written supposedly by a former limey spook working for a private security organization that was requested by Trump’s enemies.

    The entire report is second sourced – in other words all the information was sourced from supposed contacts in Russian intel.

    1. It can never be proven unless Russia fronts up.

    2. How does anyone know the information was accurate and it just wasn’t Russian intel playing with the fucker.

    3. We know that Putin cuts balls off for misbehavior. Why would a Russian take a risk of handing over this sort of very confidential information and take the risk that his life would be in danger. It makes no sense.

    4. The limey spook had to give them something because there was money involved.. How do we know he didn’t make up shit in order to impress knowing its likely to never be proven.

    5. How do we know this limey spook even exists?

    One last thing. The report said Cohen went to Prague to arrange payment for the hacking services. This is total 100% bullshit, as it doesn’t work this way. Russia would not request the Trump organization pay for the hacking. Huge weakness, which makes me think it’s a total hoax.

    The FBI could not find any evidence of him visiting. That’s one thing they are pretty good at.

    4Chan thread claiming credit for pissgate:

  15. mr skeletor

    Hmm, tried to post links to the pissgate claims on 4chan but the posts aren’t appearing. Can’t link to 4Chan I guess.

  16. Infidel Tiger

    We can’t trust the FBI JC.

    They’ve been compromised.

    Look on the balance of probabilities I think we have to accept it’s true. Why would the media lie to us?

  17. NewChum

    Of course it is a total hoax. Not a word of it is believable, which is why it never ran during the election campaign, even when there was plenty of other Bullshit flying around – remember all the mistreated women and fat miss universe stories? Most of those were unverifiable BS – all of trumps enemies were sitting on this fake dossier and not one decided to unload right at the peak ‘mistreating women’ BS.

    The Cohen alibi will sink the whole thing. If the 4chan mob come out with more evidence it will finish off buzz feed or at least the editor who decided to run with it.

    I am amazed at how the hate for Trump clouds the judgement of so many people. It sends them right around the twist. It must take effort to choke down BS like this document just because of blind hate, you really have to disengage your rational brain to do so.

  18. JC

    More on the hacking payment bullshit.

    Even if the Russians are penny pinching misers, the very, very last thing they would do is ask Trump to front up the cash. It would mean cross border payments that are potentially traceable. The Russians aren’t stupid and would assess this as a risk and them being found out. They would pay for the hacking themselves without a second thought.

    And really.. they are hoping and helping Trump get elected president and they’re asking for 25k, 100k, a million k even, for payments… Bullshit.

    Huh? When did the USA commence departure procedures?

    That’s half the reason they’ve such a corker of an illegal immigration problem, they keep absolutely no record whatsoever of who leaves the country. Never have.

  21. mr skeletor

    If it is a 4chan hoax (which reading those threads seems very likely) the media will really have fucked itself over yet again. Buzzfeed will be shot to pieces, if not sued out of existence.

  22. memoryvault

    I’m not sure “moron” is the right term, Skeletor. Even certified morons have a certain, basic level of discernment. Only a bona fide “true blue believer”, a form of religious fanatic, desperately seeking confirmation of their own wacky beliefs, could ever give credence to such a load of easily discredited codswallop.

    Bloke I know at the gun club was raving about a few years back. Big hunting man.

    Then he went all quiet – said it was “too technical”. Didn’t hear anything more.

  24. Infidel Tiger

    Rick Wilson says it’s true. Sure he also said Ted Cruz was banging every smoking babe in Washington and the media and that checked out fine didn’t it?

  25. mr skeletor

    It is very possible that the CIA just got outsmarted by 4chan.

    Lets all have a think about that for a minute.

  26. mr skeletor

    I also have to say 4chan is one hell of a grubby place.

    Never having gone to the U.S. let alone leave it, SatP, I’ll take your word for it – there may be no “official” record of who leaves. However, I can guarantee there is an “unofficial” record available to the likes of the CIA and the FBI, and that would be the passenger manifestos for every flight and every ship leaving American shores.

    If the authorities are now saying this guy was never where it is claimed he was in Eurpoe – an unprovable claim – what they really mean is they know he never left the USA in the first place, in the time period in question.

    It is still correct. As long as Trump/Turnbull aren’t hurting anyone else or kids/animals, no one should care if they spend their weekends in Dr Duran Duran’s Excessive Machine greased up in Astroglide(TM).

    Dot, you’re missing the point. The Left don’t have reasons, they have excuses. They have no principles, they just pretend to, like they pretend to have morals, pretend to care for the poor, pretend to believe n things other than total control, etcetera. You should have seen through them by now.

    Remember they did all this before Obamas second term even started, in a remarkable long term strategy.

    On the departure procedures.. no exit stamp from the us, but unless he went to Europe by rowboat, the us government knows exactly if he left the country at the click of a button. They know when you’re leaving before you actually leave.

    A Muslim bigamist will have his court costs paid by the federal government after the Federal Court found he had his visa cancelled because the migration forms did not provide enough or clear options to describe his relationship status.

    Egyptian man Mahmoud Mahdy Mahmoud Salama moved to Australia in 2003 on a prospect­ive partner visa and married an Australian woman the same year.

    He was then granted a provisional partner visa and returned to Egypt in 2004 where he married another woman in Cairo, while still married in Australia.

    In 2006, Mr Salama was granted a permanent partner visa, while married to both women.

    He divorced his Australian wife the following year.

    In 2012, he submitted an applic­ation for a Resident Return visa and listed his relationship ­status as “divorced”. His visa was granted but in 2014 a delegate of the Minister for Immigration wrote notifying of the intention to consider cancelling the visa on the grounds that the information provided was false and that Mr Sal­ama had failed to notify the department of changes in circumstances, being the birth of his child to his wife from Cairo.

    Mr Salama’s visa was cancelled that year.

    He appealed against the decision to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and the Federal Circuit Court, arguing that in his view his marital status was divorced­, because he was aware that his Egyptian marriage was not recognised in Australia as he was married at the time to his Australian wife.

    Mr Salama also told the Admin­istrative Appeals Tribunal that he had never had a commitment to or been in a marriage-like arrangement with his Egyptian wife, as the marriage was forced upon him by his family.

    He said the couple had only lived together for short periods of time and he wanted to sponsor their four children to come to Australia because of the difficult circumstances in Egypt.

    Mr Salama said that, since 2013, he has been in another ­relationship with an Australian woman.

    BTW – My granddaughter has just completed first year high school. Last year, each term (three times) the girls were pressured into wearing head scarves for “Diversity Day”. My granddaughter and her friend resisted, and were treated like pariahs by the teachers. “Diversity Day” is now widespread across QLD, private and state schools alike.

    You are so far out of touch with what is happening in the real world, as to be a joke, an anachronism, JC. Give it up before you make an even bigger fool of yourself.

    JC, I know it’s beneath you dignity, but I’d ask you to scroll up a little. Up until about an hour ago, there were several conversations going on. I replied to one comment with an “I honestly don’t know” response. You jumped in with an utterly irrelevant personal attack on me. At that point you killed the conversation, and everybody else went to bed.

    It’s hardly the first time, JC. You and the Fatuous Four seem to think this is your personal jousting ring. Intelligent debate isn’t beyond you, you’re just not interested. You only come here to pick a fight. Tonight is a perfect example. My statement, which you insulted, was in total agreement with your own, made only minutes earlier.

    But that was irrelevant. You were looking for an argument, and so you picked one, and in doing so, killed the thread. Like you have done so many times before. And having lost the argument, now you want your attack dogs to join you in a pile-on. In fact you applaud the thought.

    JC, you and the Fatuous Four are killing this blog. Pretty soon you will have reduced it to Montyesque trolls, and people prepared to spend all night trading insults with you.

    I’m not one of them.

    Basil now reckons he was talking about crossing land borders by car and greyhound bus.

    In other words he sticks his stupid paw in dog shit then walks it around the house hoping no one catches a whiff.

    What a klutz.

  62. That is a long winded way of JC Morrison conceding he’s a moron, and that there isn’t formal departure procedures from the USA.
    Something which having been there a few times he well knows.

    Stand by for a bit of goalpost shifting, but the point stands.
    Either JC Morrison is a liar, or is stupid.

    Nothing changes. He can rant & dribble for the rest of the night if he wishes. As Memoryvault has observed, when the Morrison acts like a kid in a sandpit, people go to bed.

    you know what’s the most nauseating thing about you, Vaultaire.

    It’s not the crankology and the immediate attempt at resorting to dissembling. It not even the victim bullshit you put on when caught out. It’s your sanctimonious drivel.

    Your commented to Basil suggesting you lent credence to his ridiculous comment that he’s now trying to swing to greyhound bus travel in the US, which incidentally are checked. Now you’re playing the sanctimonious victim. Just spare us.

  64. JC

    That is a long winded way of JC Morrison conceding he’s a moron, and that there isn’t formal departure procedures from the USA.

    Our discussion centered on Cohen leaving the US to go to Prague. You weighed in that the US DOES NOT check passenger departures (obviously about plane travel). This is a lie about any form of movement out of the US – let alone plane travel. It is checked, so STFU and go disco dancing.

    Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?

  67. Fisky

    Trump looks like he wants to go the full Erdogan against the CIA. This is going to be fascinating. The guy plays for high stakes, that’s for sure. He put his entire business empire on the line in the general election (yes, he would have lost everything if he hadn’t pulled it off), and now he’s basically risking his life.

  68. Caveman

    Expect the Dow over 20k tonight after Trump press conference.

  69. BorisG

    It is standard KGB practice to compile damaging dossiers on anyone of note just in case. Usually mostly fabricated but interwoven with real facts.

    Trump’s anger is understandable but misplaced. Intel had no choice as rumours about these dossiers have been circulating for months. it does not mean it is credible.

  70. BorisG

    He put his entire business empire on the line in the general election (yes, he would have lost everything if he hadn’t pulled it off),

    Exact opposite is true. His empire would have benefited either way. Any publicity is good publicity.

  71. BorisG

    and now he’s basically risking his life.

    calm down and take a deep breath, Fisk. it will all be peaceful and friendly.

  72. Cannibal

    So given the tensions between the US and Russia over Syria, the dummocrats implacate Russia in installing Trump as potus and then setting about discrediting him. Is this what we’re expected to believe?

  73. Gerard O

    It doesn’t matter if the Trump thing is true — that was never the point. They wanted to send a message:
    If you cross us, we will destroy you!

    The list of people this has happened to over the years would probably stretch to the Moon.

  74. Schneider, an OB-GYN resident intern at the Kaiser Oakland Medical Center in California:

    As women’s health care providers, we cannot stand on the sidelines and watch while Roe v. Wade and Title X funding ― which supports vital family planning services for the most vulnerable women in our population ― rest on the chopping block. If any one of Trump’s proposed conservative nominees to the Supreme Court are confirmed, we will be fighting once again to preserve a woman’s constitutional right to make her own healthcare choices.

    … If given the opportunity, this administration will wage a war on women’s health and we have to show up to fight it. In states like Ohio, where Governor John Kasich recently signed a bill into law banning abortion after 20 weeks with no exceptions for rape or incest, this battle has already begun.

    Schneider ended her column with a call to action, urging abortion supporters like herself to stand up against these pro-life initiatives.

    She concluded with these final, ironic words: “Every baby I deliver reminds me of who we’re fighting for. This is their future. They deserve better than Trump’s America, and so do we.”

    Unfortunately, it’s those babies who she and her fellow abortion advocates also are fighting against. Because of Roe v. Wade and the work of abortion practitioners in the past 43 years, close to 60 million unborn babies have died unjustly in abortions.

    How can these people be so morally blind? How can they at once fight for the ‘right’ of mothers to kill their children in utero while at the same time professing concern for the interests of children? Just breathtaking.

  75. None

    Yes it is breathtaking Dover.
    I just got suspended permanently from twitter (well under this account name) after three days of American tweeps and a couple of Aussies, all males, trying to tell me, a woman, that I don’t understand abortion. All I asked was how is killing babies healthcare? (Twitter then told me I was banned because I made a violent threat. I don’t make threats much less violent threats.

  92. What specialisation are abortion doctors? I would have guessed OB-GYN. Is this a matter of where progressives and players have taken over an institution?

    Again?

    From Conservapedia:

    Abortion doctors are physicians that carry out abortions. They tend to fall into one of three categories:

    Ob/gyns who perform abortions on their own patients
    Abortion specialists who perform primarily abortions at a local practice
    “Circuit riders” who travel, often from state to state, to perform abortions at freestanding facilities
    The first category is rare, though it is difficult to estimate how rare. Ninety percent of abortions are performed in freestanding outpatient facilities dedicated to abortion,[1] but how many of the remaining 10% are performed on patients with whom the doctor has an existing relationship, versus how many are performed by abortion specialists, is unclear.

    and

    Any licensed physician can perform abortions in the United States. High profile abortionist Robert Crist is an ob/gyn,[7] as were troubled abortionists Moshe Hachamovitch[8] and John Biskind.[9] Abortion entrepreneur Steven Chase Brigham, on the other hand, is a specialist in internal medicine.[10] LeRoy Carhart, who challenged the partial birth abortion ban, is a general practitioner.[11] Troubled California abortionist and clinic owner/operator Leo Kenneally had no specialization.[12] Bruce Steir, who was charged with murder after one of his abortion patients bled to death in the car on the way home, had no specialty and no board certifications.[13]

    If only Abbott had the same feistiness about him, he’d still be PM and the Coalition wouldn’t have a one-seat, one-heart-attack-away-from-losing-it majority

    The mainstream media is now irrelevant, only Trump will make them relevant, if he chooses to. Given that journalism was taught in universities by the likes of Wendy Bacon, Margaret Simmons and their leftist ilk little wonder it is now turned yellow journalism, the mainstream media is no longer believed, mistrusted and derided as purveyors of fake news because that’s what they’ve done for the last twenty years at least.

    This has been very noticeable in Australia with the disgraceful behaviour of the likes of ‘Shit Happens’ Riley and every gotcha concocted to ensure that Tony Abbott was brought down, and they succeeded here because Abbott was too stoic instead of calling them out at every turn which is what Trump is doing; but then again Trump knows the media inside out and upside down and masterful deals with them as only he knows how.

    It is teacherous media that has to be dealt out of the game, entirely. Only by rebuilding trust will the mainstream media ever have any power again, and there are too many who have been corrupted for that ever to happen again. It will be the rebel media which behaves differently from the mainstream media that is in the ascendancy and people will have to be very discerning, what they read will not be necessarily what they believe and the people now know the contempt in which the powerful monied elites hold them including actors, musicians, sports stars and others for whom they shell out their hard earned for entertainment.

    Taxpayers paid more for Bill Shorten’s family to travel with him in the lead-up to last year’s election than they spent on the family travel of Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott in the last three elections combined.

    The Opposition Leader’s claim of $51,531 for the six months to June 2016 compares with $14,441 for the Prime Minister during the same period, $14,337 for Tony Abbott in the second half of 2010 and $11,080 for Abbot­t in the second half of 2010.

    Kevin Rudd claimed $20,435 in the period surrounding the 2013 election, while Julia Gillard claimed $13,439 in the second half of 2010.

    http://raymcgovern.com/bio/

    On July 20, 2002, CIA Director George Tenet had told his British counterpart that the “intelligence and facts were being ‘fixed’ around the policy of ‘regime change’ in Iraq.” On June 5, 2008, Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Jay Rockefeller, announced the main conclusion of a five-year study by his committee, saying, “In making the case for war, the administration repeatedly presented intelligence as fact when it was unsubstantiated, contradicted or even nonexistent.” In sum, the “intelligence” was not mistaken; it was out-and-out fraud.

    It got worse. As an act of conscience, on March 2, 2006 Ray returned the Intelligence Commendation Medallion given him at retirement for “especially meritorious service,” explaining, “I do not want to be associated, however remotely, with an agency engaged in torture.” He returned the medallion to Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R, Michigan), then-Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

    “This week, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman actually had the gall to write a column called “Deficits Matter Again.”

    People understandably went nuts. Deficits suddenly matter for Krugman just because a Republican takes power? What a hypocrite!

    Indeed.

    But Krugman’s defenders shot back: um, guys, he has reasons that deficits matter again!

    So we looked into the “reasons.”

    It’s two statistics. And guess what: those statistics WERE NO DIFFERENT MONTHS AGO.

    And yet Krugman was not warning us about Obama deficits months ago.”

    Even his mixture of politics with ecumenism. How can any two or three walk together unless they be agreed? Especially on the most important issue of who God is.

    He was brave to stand with his back to HRC when she was preaching about freedom in the ME, and then got beaten up for it. One can’t doubt his zeal. But ‘Free Gaza’? Must see what he means by that.

    An interesting story came out of the Trump press conference about the US intelligence services, which should send a cold shiver down the spines of the traitors in their midst.

    Trump said that every time he met with them, the contents of the meeting were leaked straight away. As some people claimed that the leaks were coming from his camp, he decided to test the proposition. He had a meeting with them that he told no-one in his office about, not even his Executive Assistant of many years. Sure enough, shortly afterwards the contents were leaked. He regards this as a serious security threat.

    Anyone who thinks that he will let this go is a fool. I expect to see some resignations and retirements in the next few days, and traitors who are stupid enough to think they can bluff it out could well end up in jail.

    It’s all about ‘us, CNN’. They think they are still setting the agenda. DT demonstrated that they are not. Calling them ‘fake news’ is a masterstroke.

    “At the beginning of the press conference, Sean Spicer, who is going to be the White House press secretary, suggested that both BuzzFeed and CNN published this dossier full of uncorroborated rumors,” Tapper continued, referring to Spicer’s aggressive statement that opened the event. “That’s not true. That’s false. CNN never did that. We never provided even one detail from that dossier except this morning when I said that there was reason to believe that one detail that had been out there because of BuzzFeed was false involving Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen.”

    The Terrible Truth About Walter Cronkite
    His role in the Vietnam defeat is being reported as if it were a highlight of his career. Yet, his misreporting helped create the conditions for a premature U.S. military withdrawal, leading to the loss of the lives of 58,000 Americans in vain, not to mention the millions of additional deaths caused in Vietnam and Cambodia by the Communists. Cronkite’s public verdict that the 1968 Tet offensive was a “defeat” for the U.S. is widely seen as a turning point in American support for the war. Cronkite falsely claimed that the Vietcong had held the American embassy for six hours and that the offensive “went on for two months.” The facts show that Tet was actually a major defeat for the communist enemy.

    In 1989, while expressing the hope that the Soviet archives would one day be opened to demonstrate how the Kremlin manipulated American journalists such as Walter Duranty of the New York Times, who had lied and helped Stalin cover up his monstrous crimes that resulted in the deaths of 7-10 million Ukrainians, Irvine added that “It will be fascinating to see what they say about Walter Cronkite, who spent two years in Moscow after World War II as a UPI correspondent and who has been remarkably restrained in his criticism of that country ever since.”

    Army Leaker Chelsea Manning on Obama’s ‘Short List’ for Commutation
    NBCNews.com – ‎8 hours ago‎
    President Obama has put Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified material, on his short list for a possible commutation, a Justice Department source told NBC News.

  151. Top Ender

    One can imagine the mindset of the people involved:

    A Federal Circuit Court judge has issued a stinging rebuke to separ­ating couples who expect the courts to decide frivolous disputes, such as the ownership of a $10 print of the Mona Lisa.

    Joshua Wilson expressed his displeasure after a couple ­appeared before his court in Melbourne with a dispute over a pile of chipped paving stones and a broken ride-on mower, among other things.

    Judge Wilson, who holds a doctorate in philosophy as well as a law degree, declined to intervene in the matters, saying it would be “wasteful of public funds” to have “commonwealth-funded judges” weighing into disputes over items worth “an absurdly small amount”.

    His remarks come at a time when the family law courts are under intense pressure, dealing with upwards of 100,000 cases a year. Many of those cases involve children in dire circumstances, and facing family violence.

    The case before Judge Wilson, known as Noakes v Fadden, ­involved a couple in their 40s who had been married for eight years. Neither was represented in court, and each came with a huge number­ of documents and affidavits that Judge Wilson was then ­expected to sort through.

    “The task of even locating the evidence was a formidable one,” he said, adding that he had been asked to turn his mind to ownership of “an outdoor heater valued at $80, and a print of Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece Mona Lisa valued at $10”.

    I am amazed at how the hate for Trump clouds the judgement of so many people. It sends them right around the twist. It must take effort to choke down BS like this document just because of blind hate, you really have to disengage your rational brain

    It’s an interesting look at how the media operates:

    There is a very simple fix for parliamentary travel rorts and that is to force all parliamentarians to submit a travel allowance claim prior to travel just like all the Public Servants who travel with them.

    The travel and allowances will not be paid unless the claim is approved – just like for the Public Servants who travel with them. I would suggest an independent travel approver in the speakers office be appointed as the delegate for parliamentary travel as the funds for parliamentary travel and allowances presumably come from the Speaker’s budget to run parliament.

    Each parliamentarian should be forced to submit a travel budget request for their own office to discharge their functions. Clearly larger electorates outback would be entitled to very substantial domestic travel entitlement including the ability to private charter if the MP wants to go from say Broome to Fitzroy Crossing. Forcing the MP to actually do one budget a year might actually be good training for them. MP like Turnbull, Bandt or Pliberseck in tiny inner city electorates would be entitled to very little.

    Ministers would need to develop a budget for ministerial travel.

    All parliamentarians could be issued a government credit card to spend allowances within approved limits and be forced to acquit the funds with receipts etc once they return like every other public servant in the country.

    There is no reason why this can’t be done.

    In the interests of transparency The delegate would then be in a position to publish the appproved and not approved travel requests once the requested allowances are acquitted.

    An academic from Queensland University of Technology this week hurled the first of the school preparation grenades, contending that school uniform requirement should no longer be split along gender lines.

    From Top Ender’s link:

    But there are naysayers. A Journal of Gender Studies paper published in 2013 said dresses and skirts as school uniforms “ritualised girling” and affected the performance of the wearer.

    Proponents of homogeny say dresses require girls to be more demure, and to walk, run and sit differently.

    Just how gay are Queenslanders?

    A couple of years ago the Bureau came up with a new weather alert. It is a heatwave if it is above the modelled, as opposed to observed, normal range of temperatures over a three day period. It is supposed to account for the temps typically experienced at the location, but as we all know with the bureau, the modellers look at it from the perspective of an air conditioned office in Melbourne and Canberra.

    The media of course, just love it.

  173. johanna

    John Comneus, a sensible suggestion about how travel allowances could be administered.

    The other aspect that needs a good going-over is the provision for accompanying staff and family. At present, MPs pretty much have carte blanche about staff, i.e. they just have to say that they need someone to go with them, and the taxpayer obligingly coughs up. There is no incentive whatsoever for them to think about the cost. And we all know about how the family allowances get rorted.

    I guess that this could be factored in to their budget, but it would take the wisdom of Solomon to work out what would be fair and reasonable given the differing circumstances of MPs and their travel requirements.

    It seems to me that removing all taxpayer funded travel for family would be a good start. Nobody is forced to be an MP, and if they don’t like being away from family then they should get another job.

    I’m not saying that they should be compulsory, but if people are really concerned about skirts blowing upwards or scanty knickers being revealed, there are ways around it.

    ‘With some menace?’ Must have been a different news conference. I wonder why he had to shout?

    “Your organization is terrible,” said President-elect Donald J. Trump, his voice rising as CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to interject. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. I’m not going to give you a question.”

    Yes, his voice rose because the CNN reporter was trying to cut him off.

    “You,” the president-elect said, as Mr. Acosta and other stunned journalists looked on, “are fake news.”

    And they continue to report his ‘fake news’ remark, giving it even more publicity.

    The jurors had to listen to the stories of the lives and deaths of Baby Boy A Abrams (29.4 weeks), whose photograph is on the Internet; Baby Boy B (twenty-eight weeks), whose frozen remains were found in the clinic—the medical examiner’s photograph of him with his neck slit is online—Baby C, who breathed for twenty minutes before Lynda Williams “snipped” his life; Baby D, who was delivered in a toilet and tried to swim to safety before Adrienne Moton slit his windpipe; Baby E, who cried before Dr. Gosnell cut his neck; and Baby F, who moved his leg up to his chest before he was killed. They saw pictures of the forty-seven dead babies discovered at the clinic the night of the raid, their remains stuffed into old milk cartons and kitty litter containers.

    Remember the fate of these children the next time someone defends the practice of abortion at any stage and for any reason and without apology in your presence, and then give them a good shove.

    If the potentially explosive story embroiling him weren’t so salacious, you might say this is a case of the emperor’s new clothes. Instead, it’s safe to say the Trump presidency is already in shambles. And it has yet to reach its official start.

    For a showman who promised to restore the Reagan era – and even ripped off Reagan’s slogan – this is just one of the most surprising revelations of the past few days.

    Reagan and his advisers knew how to project a sunny image that kept the presidency separate from whatever the pesky media wanted to focus on, such as high unemployment or secret gun-running to enemy states.

    Judging from Wednesday’s trainwreck press conference – the first since July – Trump and his handlers have no self-discipline and no strategy to deal with the Russian crisis that has been simmering for the best part of the past year.

    They also have no sense of irony or, apparently, reality. The press conference opened with Sean Spicer, the incoming press secretary, condemning the media coverage of Trump’s compromised relationship with Russia as “frankly outrageous and highly irresponsible”.

    In many ways, Trump has snowballed all the Clinton scandals into one shock-and-awe transition. He has somehow combined all the anti-Clinton accusations of foreign influence and financial irregularity in the 1996 re-election, with the dubious personal morality of the Lewinsky affair and the never-ending tendency towards cronyism. Only it took the Clintons decades to accrue these kinds of entanglements.

    We could compare the relative importance of being Putin’s poodle versus sex with an intern, but what’s the point? After all, Trump can make the case better than any of us.

    Trump will never learn from his mistakes. Suspecting the recent Russia revelations are the work of the intelligence agencies, Trump continues to wage war on his own spies. He could offer no proof of such a betrayal but continued to trash the CIA in public all the same.

    This kind of struggle does not end well for sitting presidents, as Richard Nixon discovered. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s biggest source, known as Deep Throat, was in fact the deputy director of the FBI.

    The more details that emerge from Team Trump, the worse Trump looks. Of course the Russian dossier couldn’t be true, said the president-elect: “I’m also very much a germophobe, by the way.”

    If this is Trump’s playbook for crisis management, his political opponents should sit back and enjoy the show. Like a dog that returns to his vomit, this president-elect just can’t help himself. Let the follies begin.

    The best thing is they are all as happy as they deserve to be at this moment, fighting the good fight against Piss Hitler and hiss ShesiseStaffell of Brownshirts.

    On january 10, Buzzfeed posted a story under the byline of Ken Bensinger, Mark Schoofs and Miriam elder titled “these reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia” and posted a link to a document alleging, among other things, that russia has been cultivating trump for 5+ years, that trump has been in constant contact with the kremlin for information on his opponents, and perhaps most inflammatory, that there are many recorded instances of blackmail of trump in sexual misconduct. A prominent claim is that trump rented the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in moscow, where he knew that the Obamas had slept in; he them hired a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden shower’ (pissplay) on the bed and in the room. https://www.buzzfeed.com/kenbensinger/th….skw2lK8Nd

    Noted #nevertrump voice Rick Wilson later commented on twitter, stating that the report “gave a new meaning to Wikileaks” (https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/status…5202379777) and that the report was the reason everybody was fighting so hard against the election of Trump. (https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/status…4335047680)

    The remarkable thing? It’s all fake. And not only fake; it’s a prank perpetuated by 4chan, on Rick Wilson himself. A post on 4chan on october 26 stated “mfw managed to convince CTR and certain (((journalists))) on Twitter there’ll be an October surprise on Trump this Friday” along with a picture of a smug face with a hash name. http://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/94704894/#94705224

    on november 1, a person without a picture but is assumed to be the same person posted “So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it. They still believe it. Guys, they’re truly fucking desperate – there’s no remaining Trump scandal that’s credible.” https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/95…/#95571329

    on january 10, moments after the story broke and began to gain traction on social media, a person with the same smug grin face, and the same hash title for the picture, stated “I didn’t think they’d take it so far.” http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/106514445#p106520376

    This story has taken on something of a life of it’s own. Going through Rick Wilson’s twitter, you can find many different stories from the time that he had shown the story to a wide number of anti-trump news sources, trying to find a news organization that would actually publish the story. During that time period, he referred to it often as ‘the thing’, and often playing coy with followers on the content with the story with anybody who was not also a #Nevertrumper. Unconfirmed sources has people as high up as John McCain giving the story to FBI Director James Comey to attempt to verify the story. Given that Rick Wilson runs in Establishment circles, it is not an impossible scenario that long-serving senators are falling for what amounts to a 4chan troll trump supporter creating an ironic October Surprise out of wholecloth to punk a GOPe pundit who derogatorily referred to them as single men who masturbate to anime.

    A dinner party thrown by the PM and attended by an Islamic preacher who once called on God to “destroy the enemies of Islam” cost taxpayers more than $30,000.

    The Kirribilli House event during the holy month of Ramadan was marred by controversy after the Herald Sun revealed Sheik Shady Al-Suleiman, who also denounced homosexuality as an “evil act” and wants adulterers stoned to death, was invited to the feast as a guest of Mr Turnbull.

    Online videos also show Sheik Shady saying women would be “hung by their breasts in hell” and should not even look at men.

    The Daily Telegraph reports that documents released under Freedom of Information laws reveal the June 2016 dinner cost taxpayers $33,694.

    The bill included $7300 for food and beverages at the alcohol-free event.

    The food was prepared by a contracted Halal caterer and included a shared main course of lamb, chicken, salmon with rice and traditional fattoush and tabouli salads.

    Other costs include $9600 for a marquee, $1812 for staff costs and $814 for flowers.

    Taxpayers also picked up the $5700 bill for airfares and accommodation costs for departmental staff to fly to Sydney for the dinner.

    I have commented many times about seeing Trump even get through the inauguration.
    The spoilt narrative holders are not able to silence him, and they know they cannot win an argument with facts.
    I say to you all, that the head explosions and dummy spits have not even really started.
    The lies and violence will be prolific.

    On january 10, Buzzfeed posted a story under the byline of Ken Bensinger, Mark Schoofs and Miriam elder titled “these reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia” and posted a link to a document alleging, among other things, that russia has been cultivating trump for 5+ years, that trump has been in constant contact with the kremlin for information on his opponents, and perhaps most inflammatory, that there are many recorded instances of blackmail of trump in sexual misconduct. A prominent claim is that trump rented the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in moscow, where he knew that the Obamas had slept in; he them hired a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden shower’ (pissplay) on the bed and in the room. https://www.buzzfeed.com/kenbensinger/th….skw2lK8Nd

Unconfirmed sources has people as high up as John McCain giving the story to FBI Director James Comey to attempt to verify the story. Given that Rick Wilson runs in Establishment circles, it is not an impossible scenario that long-serving senators are falling for what amounts to a 4chan troll trump supporter creating an ironic October Surprise out of wholecloth to punk a GOPe pundit who derogatorily referred to them as single men who masturbate to anime.

    +1. The left do resort to violence because they cannot win any argument on facts. Or rather they so distort any position through the prism of their egos that any credibility is lost. For instance once there was a genuine pollution problem and some groups had legitimate concerns; but that wasn’t enough; their egos demanded that the end of the world scenario of alarmism be created and whatever shred of justification the environmentalists had went out the window with alarmism and the subsequent takeover by the communist/watermelons.

    The Committee for the First Amendment was an action group formed in September 1947 by actors in support of the Hollywood Ten during the hearings of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). It was founded by screenwriter Philip Dunne, actress Myrna Loy, and film directors John Huston and William Wyler.

    From TFM’s reporter, holed up in the basement:

    Reagan and his advisers knew how to project a sunny image that kept the presidency separate from whatever the pesky media wanted to focus on

    And in the next breath:

    Of course the Russian dossier couldn’t be true, said the president-elect: “I’m also very much a germophobe, by the way.”

    There’s just no pleasing some people.

    I was prepared to believe pissgate because who doesn’t go to Russia without getting a little watersports action with a few hookers? This was right up until the point where mUnty said there was something in it and then it was just me and my memories, lying back on a sodden mattress with Yulia, Svetlana and a couple of others whose names I forget. I’m sure the CIA could remind me.

    Really, how long?

    … since about the time the Pro-UN Narrative CON-Trollers started getting trolled into bitching about Trumpian’s always calling them out on their Pro-UN Narrative CON-Trolling tricks and tactics … 😉 😀 😆

    They have not gained control of the narrative.
    As we know from History, that means they get violent.
    What really is the likelihood that the Don can control the inevitable world wide , left wing violent dummy spit?

    Remember, Trump has repeatedly made it clear that he is only the messenger and the number and quality of policing and military men who were standing behind him, and who he’s raised to the fore, is a very loud part of the message. 🙂
