In The News for Friday, June 14, 2019

·        Great quote from Ronald Reagan: “How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

·        It just keeps getting smellier and smellier, doesn’t it? It now appears the State Department was in it up to their ears along with an aide to Rep. Steny Hoyer, which would indicate that the good senator was aware of it, too. The DOJ intends to question two CIA officers who were involved in the Russia investigation and CIA Director Gina Haspel does not plan to block the interviews.

·        This is also getting interesting. Gen. Flynn has hired a fierce FBI critic a new attorney. He is awaiting sentencing for his trumped-up process crime and rumors have been circulating that he may be shifting to the offensive. I hope so. I’ve written about his new attorney, Sidney Powell in the past. She has written a book, Licensed To Lie, exposing corruption in the Department of Justice.  I’m just now getting around to reading it. She is a former Federal Prosecutor so she knows whereof she speaks. Here is a good piece from the London Center for Policy Research on her background. Very impressive! She has a private practice now in Dallas, TX.

·        CNN continues to bleed. Get woke, Go broke. Loses one-third of primetime audience.

·        I’ll make an easy call. Rep. Justin Amash is toast in his re-election bid. He’s now trailing his challenger by 16 points.

·        Why decent people hate the Mainstream Media, Chapter 11,786. As the author says, “disgraceful.”

·        A Vox “journalist” tried to show how dumb Trump is and would up showing his own ignorance. Even I know that modern farmers use GPS to ensure precision plowing and crop management. Odds are this ignoramus has never seen a farm.

·        A great example of the Dopeler Effect that I have referred to in the past. Biden claims that there wasn’t a “hint of a Scandal” during the Obama/Biden Administration. Really? Matt Margolis can name ten.  Maybe Joe is surrounded by the Bozone Layer.

·        An A-10 Warthog lands on a dirt strip. There’s a reason the ground pounders love these things.

·        Maybe she should emigrate, then, while she can still get letters of transit from Rick. If she waits too long, Inspector Renault Barr may nab her. Hillary warned fascism coming to America.

·        Justice is sweet! I wrote last week about the judgement against Oberlin College. The plaintiff was awarded $11,000,000 in compensatory damages and another $22,000,000 in punitive damages, the maximum allowed.

·        Nancy tried to use a poster titled McConnell’s Graveyard with bills she says Mitch wants to bury. It didn’t turn out as she intended based on the responses. All she did was reinforce what a badass he is, which is the source of his popularity.
