  1. TTTNE 469- A New Order of Imperial entanglement

    Bah, humbug. You are a worm, and when rocksniffer returns you will be stuck on a hook and thrown into the sea on the end of a fishing line! And the fish that swallows you will be the central dish of the feast to celsbrate the return to the rightful order!

    Dana Bash, the CNN correspondent who has been talking to someone in the White House, is now reporting that she has been told that the WH thinks the Speaker did not work hard enough to bring all members on board to support the bill. Ryan is about to be thrown under the bus.

    I am absolutely loyal to his eminence, Sailor rocksniffer!

    Hey, I didn't say he invented it, I'm just saying that's a business tactic he talked about. What may be significant news - someone on a CNN panel just got a message from someone in Congress that the head of the Freedom Caucus has told members of their group to 'vote their conscience'....

    The threat to leave the table has always been a classic negotiating tactic. The midnight oil will burn in Washington tonight! 45 talked about it in his book. You have to be able to get up and leave the table at times.

    Another very sad piece of news - a 19 year old man with dual US-Israeli citizenship has been arrested in Israel for making threats against synagogues across Canada and the US. It seems most of the threats may have come from him.

    I see that a new tactic for the fake news crowd is to print their shit and bury a message somewhere that their site is 'satire'. The one I just saw was a story Michelle Obama's mother has been charged with fraudulently collecting a $160,000 annual pension for looking after her grandchildren. It's been shared more than 17,000 times. Just so you know, yes she looked after the grandkids at the WH, no, she wasn't paid and no, she didn't collect a pension for that. What a strange world we now live in. Satire is merging with news because politicians are doing the unthinkable, and racists are trying to spread their hate under the guise of satire.

    Most interesting comments to articles these days.... I see there's a NYT piece about the smell of treason in the air. In response to that article, a poster wondered if Comey had actually talked about Clinton to mislead the Trump crowd, that sometimes the cat has to wait silently by the rat hole for a long time.

    I have now gone through this thread and I am shocked and appalled at this uprising! However, I do understand that the absence of the sniffer has been deeply felt. My instinct is to just convene the High Treason Court and start the hangings, but my compassionate side calls for mercy. But I am making lists...

    Read the opening pages. When rocksniffer returns, all those who mutinied will be walking the plank, mateys! Either that or be taken down to the deepest sub-basement of the TTTNE dungeons, where they will be tarred and feathered and stretched on the rack. Since I'm off to the dentist to be tortured myself, I did not have a chance to read all the pages, perhaps he had a chance to say all this himself. But it only seemed fair to warn you. Seriously, though, the sniffer has been under the weather and was ordered to chill for several weeks. Unfortunately, this seems to be the Curse of TTTNE at work once again. One of the few people who seemed to have evaded The Curse has been Buckwheat, but The Curse has taken down many a glorious leader over the years. I also humbly apologize to y'all for not telling you this several days ago when the sniffer asked me to, I was felled by some of my own issues.

    I have not heard anyone connecting these dots. For the past week Sean Spicer and 45 himself have been saying 'there's more information that's going to come out'. That begs the question - did 45 already know everything Nunes scurried off to tell him? And if 45 already knew whatever the information was, who told him? Or is there more information that 45 has and is going to release? ETA: Just saw a CNN discussion connecting such dots, and speculating the whole Nunes thing was carefully orchestrated to draw attention, once again, away from the bad news of Comey saying there was an active investigation of 45's associates.

    If security services have 'unmasked' numerous US citizens in reports that got wide circulation, I think the Republicans are justified to be angry. I gather they should be referred to as "Person A" and "Person B" or something along those lines. So this seems to be more than just Flynn being unmasked. What I would be royally pissed off at if I were a Democrat was the fact Nunes went to his House Leader and then went to a vote and then went to the President and then held a fucking press conference before bothering to tell Democrats about the reports that were shown to him.
  15. Really. That's why I said damn announcers. Americans always seem to ask, is this person alone or are there others doing things elsewhere. We may be being unfair, though. Maybe it comes from their years of coverage in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Israel too, where there regularly have been multiple incidents at once. Typically a bomb going off, and then when rescuers rush in, another goes off. Iirc, the IRA did that a few times as well.
