Tuesday, Election Day 2017
CARTER PAGE IS AN IDIOT
Carter Page is a Fucking Idiot. I touched on this a little yesterday, but Carter Page, the Sheldon Cooper of Treason, testified before the House Intelligence Committee for over 7 hours without an attorney.
During his testimony, he admitted to meeting with members of the Russian Government, informing the campaign of his trips, meeting the head of Rosneft, discussed the sale as mentioned in the Steele Dossier, countered himself multiple times to lead himself into perjury charges, and threw everyone under the bus.
Never testify before Congress without an attorney. Lionel Hutz or Saul Goodman are fictional characters, but still better than representing yourself.
DEMOCRAT RALPH NORTHAM WINS VIRGINIA GOVERNOR RACE, NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR RACE EXPECTED TO GO TO DEMOCRAT PHIL MURPHY
Its shortly after 8:30 PM, and the Virginia Governor race has already been called for Ralph Northam. He was in a bit of an ugly campaign with Ed Gillespie, who took the hard-line, Trumpist approach to immigration, crime, social issues, and the like.
Virginia is an interesting state, that has “shifted blue” over the past decade. Their state Constitution terms limits their Governor to one term at a time.
Something to keep in mind, Virginia changed their voting machines in the past few months, removing the touch screen devices and replacing them with optical scan machines that include a built-in paper trail.
At the time of this writing, the New Jersey Governor race hasn’t been called yet, but it’s very likely pointing to Phil Murphy winning. Chris Christie is term limited, and a political pariah in New Jersey. He’s polling behind car salesman, higher taxes, and some forms of sexually transmitted diseases. So, of course his Lieutenant Governor ran to succeed him.
THE PARADISE PAPERS PUT THE GOP TAX PLAN INTO FOCUS
You know, criminals.
BANNON USED MERCER MONEY STASHED AWAY TO PUSH AGENDA
Speaking of criminals, here’s a piece about Steve Bannon. He used money stashed offshore by Robert Mercer to push his Nationalist agenda, and create his “vision” for America.
THE FOX NEWS PROPAGANDA MACHINE
Teen Vogue comes to the same conclusion as I do. Fox News is propaganda.
While everyone else was talking about Manafort, Gates, and Papadopoulos, Fox News was breaking down the controversy of whether the cheese on the cheeseburger emoji should be on top of the meat, or under it.
They distract from news that doesn’t fit their narrative.
TRUMP SENDS CIA DIRECTOR POMPEO TO MEET ABOUT DEBUNKED CONSPIRACY THEORY
Trump sent the CIA Director to meet with a former NSA whistleblower. Was it about tracking down leaks, or getting a fresh perspective on Russia?
No, it was to try to prop up the Seth Rich story. The same one that has been debunked several times, and that the White House coordinated the release with Fox News to distract from Robert Mueller’s appointment as Special Counselor.
The CIA should never be politicized. The bureaucrats and lifers hate it, and are working to prevent Pompeo from causing permanent harm.
TRUMP MAY HAVE LIED ABOUT TIES WITH RUSSIAN MOBSTER
Surprisingly, Trump lied about knowing Felix Sater. Felix is a known associate of Trump, and the Russians.
And the FBI. Felix has been a long time informant, who has helped take down some Mafia members over the last couple decades.
HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE SCHEDULES JEFF SESSIONS TO TESTIFY NEXT TUESDAY
Well, that finally happened. It’s a small move, but could mean that some very large steps are coming in the investigation into Russia.
The only committee that hasn’t dug into Russia has been the House Judiciary. It’s also where Impeachment begins.
That’s it for today.
Thank you, and have a good one.
