Jack, I think we have known about that number of her unmaskings for a long time. Perhaps the "news" is what she says in her emails?

MR, looking at Foxnews.com, I read down the headlines until "Meet the world's sexiest hockey goalie" but never saw anything about Samantha Powers' emails. Another wasted click I gave that site.

So what WAS the news that Hannity was wetting his pants over last night? Thought so.

Iggy, you surface your criticism from time to time about our just offering to hold his coat while "Him and you fight" when several of us start playing our broken record regarding what was done when and what we see is the result thereof. I say "criticism" because when you do it, it always comes over (to me at least) as a put down of the complainers, and, as I said once before, it puts you in the role of "scoring" that some commenters have not "earned the right" to have such thoughts or say them aloud as if you get to decide whether we rise to the level of a Janet or a Maryrose whom you say did. You are one of the smartest and best read guys here so you know damn good and well that political movements always involve leaders, doers and "supporters", and that nobody takes away the right of any non-leader or non-doer to nevertheless have an opinion. Trump ASKED for this job, he TOLD us how he would do it if we gave it to him, and in return we gave him our votes and money. Now he's back and we have every right to consider how to respond when the same "asks" come our way.

Maryrose, I forget...do you do email and if so does anybody have your address?

A-bob "We keep hearing about how much better our military is. Is that really true? I’m having my doubts." Not being able to drive several gazillion dollar high tech war ships past slow moving tramp steamers without running into them was a hint maybe? Back when the USSR was collapsing into itself, we used to laugh at how few of their war machines were in working condition. Checked our mission critical status reports lately?

More virtue signalling from Iggy I see from last night...guess somebody has to stir TomR's pot when he is gone, right?: "Trump isn't doing enough and has let me down!" cry all those on the sidelines not doing anything except complaining about how little the guy in the actual arena with the daggers in him is doing. Maybe the fault lies not in our stars..." Not going to argue his point, just letting him know that his digs do not go unnoticed.

Sorry to vent, but that deportation leak yesterday just set me off.

So appoint an "acting" and never ever settle for a probable Brutus. Make the "acting" such a Patton that the Senate will beg for somebody to approve in that slot.

Understood, Clarice, though some of those names (Wray) were so well known at the Metropolitan Club that everybody knew where that was headed. So why not fire them the moment they show their true colors? Why not warn in in the "you're hired interview" that this is what I need from you in three months, six months, etc...and here is what will get you fired the moment it happens..." That's how Jack Welch got GE to the top of the heap in his day. That's how Trump himself amassed a serious fortune whatever the real number is. That's what MOVEMENT leaders all do. The tone was set when he let Flynn hang.

really NOT into it.

The two parts that I simply do not get (about this stream of bad appointments to really MAGA Centric posts) are: How can it be that Trump does not yet have even a single DC Tom Hagan around to warn him off the Sessions, Rosensteins, Wrays, Kavanaughs. Hell, Clarice would have been his red flag for free as names flowed through the pipeline the last almost three years. Or maybe he knows exactly who he is appointing but that is on a dimension that must have an imaginary number. And second, why, why, why does he never do, as any decent NYC Developer would in a nano second, which is fire the damn plumber 24 hours after the first sewer backup, shouting "sue me but get the hell off my job site". "Senate Confirmation" no longer hacks it when he embeds a known Deep Stater where he can backstab a major deportation initiative, and timed to add fuel to the Flip-Flop Man on the heels of yanking his Iran action, yanking the Mexican Tariffs? And so on. These are either really poor picks who want to kill Trump and MAGA, or else he is just really into it, all those rallies notwithstanding. Either way, Deep Staters and Coup Plotters, criminals past, present and future, who some here think are shaking in their boots - #twoweeks - , are just as likely to be laughing at his bluster at this point. And do not tell me to go read the damn book he wrote.

Ext, in #2weeks, Trump is going to put a strong letter in his personnel file. Maybe Trump likes having old and new Deep State backstabbers in his top spots? Why else does he name them to sensitive jobs? Just wondering.

Buckeye "point out what a shitshow the House has been under Dem leadership." Coulda left off those last three words.

Cap'n "I'm still breaking mine in while I buy call options for The Verandah." As fast as the value of those calls is falling, I might be willing to sell you mine if you have cash-cash. :-)

Cap'n, there is no new scam under the sun. Human nature is too unchanged over the millennia. Rinse and repeat.

"The Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday lowered its forecasts for interest rates over the next three decades..." The jokes just write themselves.

Eventually, any society of children will be taken over by grownups from somewhere else, who will eat the kids for lunch. Darwin.

Jack I know you are right in your 4:12 but I hope Trump knows that sometimes a big sticks gotta be used or others will doubt it even exists. In this climate his AG was arguably the single most important appointment he had to make after the election, and for him to say now that appointing Sessions was the biggest mistake of his presidency suggests that his Hard-ass CEO rep needs burnishing. This leak story plays more as inside DC when (some) supporters are tiring of "nuance".

Jane I haven't heard anybody but me ask that question so maybe the "where" is settled. But the lack of clear reporting and graphics tickles my funny bone. Approaching their motel, if it was on the other side of the road, gives a defense lawyer options to argue. But we don't even know that from anything I have actually read. Ever since Bill Clinton questioned the meaning of "is", I count on nuthin until the check clears the bank. Yes, wedding was June 1 and was great success.
