In The News for Wednesday

In The News:

·        Apparently, John Dunham has been on the job longer that just a few days and he had some people very worried.

·        This week’s update on the Democratic Presidential Clown Car. Always worth a read.

·        Bill Nye “The Fake Science Guy” had a meltdown abetted by fake reporter John Oliver.

·        For both professionals and home handymen, cordless tools have been a fantastic development. Now, a British engineer has taken them to the next level. Pretty cool stuff. It’s currently raising funds on Kickstarter. The motor is in the handle.

·        Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez astounded to learn anyone takes her seriously.

·        A lot of the revealing things that have come out recently have been the result of Judicial Watch’s FOIA requests. The most recent shows that the Obama administration orchestrated the Clinton email cover-up, possibly because it revealed that the President communicated with her on her unsecure server using an alias.

·        I saw an interview with Trey Gowdy, the last person I’d want on my case if I had anything to hide. He dropped an interesting suggestion which I caught. “Whoever’s investigating this, tell them to look for emails between Brennan and Comey in December of 2016.” I don’t think he was speculating. I strongly suspect he was dropping something that he was aware of through his work heading the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Gonna take a lot of popcorn before this is over.

·        Rod Rosenstein had a few comments on James Comey while speaking at the Greater Baltimore Council on Tuesday night. He called him a “partisan pundit” who crossed “bright lines that should never be crossed.” Before this is all over, St. James will be struggling to keep his self-awarded halo in place.

·        Nothing to see here. Just keep moving. Hunter Biden’s China deal partners include mobster Whiter Bulger’s nephew and John Kerry’s stepson.

·        I’ve just ordered this book and am looking forward to reading it. Sacred Duty: A Soldier’s Tour at Arlington Cemetery. Tom Cotton was an officer in the Old Guard and has written a book about his experience. It has gotten great reviews.
