Daily Check-In 12/08/2017

It’s Friday, and I’m still fighting this cold.  And the cold.  But, the world doesn’t stop because I’m sick.  So, time to take a shot of DayQuil, and time to get to brass tacks.

Let’s get ready for the NEWS DUMP!

RUSSIAN MIDEAST NUCLEAR PROJECT BRINGS COLLUSION AND TREASON INTO FOCUS

Part of removing sanctions on Russia was a proposed project of building many nuclear reactors in the Middle East.

Russian companies would build the reactors, and the United States would use the military to secure the locations.

This project would be the first step in the recolonization of the Middle East.

Nuclear reactors are VERY expensive. Several billion dollars per reactor, and they can generate many times their worth in revenue over their lives.

This is a Trillion Dollar Deal. Sounds like a lot of motivation for some people to sell out their country.

AL FRANKEN TO RESIGN FROM SENATE

This hurts. I like Al, and he’s been one hell of a fighter against Trump.

The good side of this story is that it means that the Democrats are the party of Integrity. They have the moral high ground, and will make each and every Republican answer questions about Trump and Moore.

He may be the first, but he won’t be the last. GOP Representative Trent Franks is resigning immediately over sexual harassment claims, and there are rumors that many more are under fire.

MORE THAN 70 PERCENT OF STEELE DOSSIER IS ACCURATE

Yep. The Dossier is Human Intelligence, which can be a little shaky. Think of it like the first draft of a screenplay. The basic plot points are there, but details need worked out.

TRUMP NAMES JERUSALEM ISRAELI CAPITAL, VIOLENCE BREAKS OUT

MATTIS, TILLERSON OPPOSED JERUSALEM MOVE

These two are related. Trump wants to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, against the wishes of EVERYONE WITH A BRAIN.

MORE UNDISCLOSED RUSSIAN EMAILS TO AND FROM DONNIE JR

Donnie’s about to have a really bad holiday, what with lying to Congress and the FBI.

WIKILEAKS UNDER CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION

In other news, water is wet. But it’s nice to hear it in the MSM.

RUSSIAN SOCIAL MEDIA EXECUTIVE WANTED TO HELP TRUMP IN 2016 ON RUSSIAN SOCIAL MEDIA

Think about this for a moment. Who does this benefit?

EVEN MORE ALL-TIME LOW POLLING NUMBERS

32 percent job approval. Some forms of Cancer have higher approval rates.

Nixon left office at 27 percent.

GP’S FIANCEE SAW MAILS WITH FLYNN, BANNON

Two big takeaways from this story.

George Papadopoulos is punching WAY above his weight class. She is out of his league by quite a bit.

She has seen emails between George Papadopoulos, Mike Flynn, and Steve Bannon.

FBI APPROACHED HOPE HICKS ABOUT RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE ATTEMPTS TO CONTACT TRUMP

Way to bury the lede there, Me.

Hope Hicks, the former model and PA for Trump, now serving as White House Communications Director, interviewed with Mueller’s team for two days recently.

One of the subjects covered was the FBI repeatedly talking to Hope about Russian Intelligence contacts reaching out to Trump and the Campaign/Transition Team.

Notice how I said she was his PA? Personal Assistants often do many crap jobs, including reading and replying to emails. She was the one relaying Trump’s messages and doing the typing for him.

These mails were under surveillance in one way or another, so the FBI knows if she replied, what she replied with, and to whom.

They know. Is she smart enough to save herself, or is she so loyal to Trump that she’s willing to go to prison for him?

That’s it for today. If you get a chance, check out Rachel Maddow’s special on the Steele Dossier.

Thank you, and have a good one.
