FORMER NSA DIRECTOR SUSAN RICE EMAILED HERSELF AN ACCOUNT OF A MEETING ABOUT TRUMP AND RUSSIA

Jesus fucking tap-dancing Christ, just read this…

RiceEmail

The next paragraph was completely redacted.  The ending said that President Obama asked to be updated in the next couple weeks if there was any reason why things might change.  Comey said sure.

Let’s put this in perspective…

January 5th, 2017 was a few days after the Obama Administration dropped the sanction hammer on Russia, and instead of a response, the Russians held back.  This confused and surprised them, so they tried to find out why.  That’s when they discovered that Mike Flynn had talked to Ambassador Kysliak and told him to hold off until Trump is in office, then they’ll take care of the sanctions and make everything right.

They had evidence that there was a spy and a traitor on their way into the White House.  FBI Director James Comey would brief Trump on the Steele Dossier the very next day.  After that, he would update the group on what happened.

Fast forward to January 20th.  Trump is just sworn in, Susan Rice is out of a job as soon as she leaves the office, and her replacement Mike Flynn is busy texting about setting up deals in the Middle East.  Susan emailed herself a record of this meeting to create a paper  trail, to prevent this from being swept under the rug and forgotten.

Earlier today, Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsay Graham sent a letter to Susan Rice, asking her why she sent this “unusual email” to herself.

 

DEVIN NUNES WORKED WITH MIKE FLYNN

If anyone’s been wondering why Devin Nunes has been so hardcore about obstructing the investigation, it’s because he’s ear-deep in criminal shit.

So, that’s where we’re at.  Devin Nunes, a senior member of the Trump Transition Team, often served as a stand-in for Mike Flynn.  Mike Flynn, who accepted a charge of lying to the FBI in a plea deal for illegal shit he did during the Transition period.

If foreign leaders wanted to talk to Flynn but couldn’t reach him, they’d contact Devin Nunes.  The odds of him not being involved in some seriously criminal shit are smaller than my chances of a threesome with Marylin Monroe and Joan of Arc.

 

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL BRAND LEAVES PARTLY OVER FEAR SHE MIGHT BE ASKED OVERSEE RUSSIA PROBE

From the article…

Should Rosenstein be fired, Brand would be next in line to oversee Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, thrusting her into a political spotlight that Brand told friends she did not want to enter.

She has seen how Rosenstein has been treated, dragged through the mud, and abused over the past year.  If he’s fired, she’s next up, and doesn’t want to go through that.

So, she can either deal with a world of shit, or take a 7 figure payout from Walmart.  Hell, a greeters job might look preferable to running the investigation under Trump.

 

PENNSYLVANIA TO PUSH REPLACING OLDER VOTING MACHINES WITH ONES THAT LEAVE A PAPER TRAIL

While it’s not a full-blown order that all older voting machines must be replaced, it’s a step in the right direction.  Funds need to be approved for the budget, and at $3,000 per machine and 20,000 voting machines throughout the state, it’ll cost the state $60,000,000 to replace all of them.  Granted, not all of them need replacing, but that figure represents the largest amount it should cost to do this.

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S BUDGET WOULD ADD $7.2 TRILLION IN FEDERAL DEFICITS OVER 10 YEARS

Here’s the thing with Presidential Budgets, they’re a lot like Christmas Wish Lists.  They have a whole ton of crazy things like a pony, a quad, and parents who love and cherish their kid, but in reality they’ll be lucky to get a My Little Pony doll, a Hot Wheels car, and for their parents to remember their name.

This budget calls for cuts to every social program like Medicaid, SNAP, and PBS, increased spending on the Military, selling off roads and airports to raise capital, and doubling funding for Trump’s wall.

By the way, it blows up the deficit at a rate unseen since… the last Republican President.  Funny how Republicans only care about growing the deficit when it’s a Democratic President that proposes tax cuts and spending increases.

As it is, I’m highly doubtful that this will ever see the light of day. Why? To get this through both the House and Senate, it needs to have enough support to get a majority and a cloture majority, respectively.

Getting through the House is possible without any Democrats joining, but will require getting the Freedom Caucus on board.  They are the most obnoxious, odious, and offensive gaggle of Tea Partiers that have ever existed.  Two things they hate are helping poor people in any way shape and form, and increasing the deficit.  They might hate the poor more than they hate debt.

As far as the Senate goes, it will require at least 9 Democrats to pass, if not more.  While there are 5 Democratic Senators running for re-election in solid Red states, that still leaves at least 4 needed.  None of them will vote to cut Medicaid or PBS, or allocate $7.5 Billion for the wall.

There will have to be a compromise between the two houses of Congress, and agreement on what that will contain.

RUMOR MILL: NOT ALL RESISTORS ARE REAL, INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK, AND DONNIE JR’S WIFE GETS POWDERED

There were a couple stories from Twitter the last few days that were of interest.

First, more members of the Resistance are catching on to the fact that they’re being infiltrated by bots and trolls.  Hell, even I have gotten a few bots following me.  It’s good to see that others are catching on, and realizing that this is a setup for a future battle.  When the fecal matter strikes the mechanical air circulation device, expect these bots to go on the attack.  They will swarm and report the voices of the Resistance en masse.  That’s part of the reason why I do this blog.  When things go sideways, I have a record.

Also, once again it’s Infrastructure Week.  At least, that’s how it starts.  The last few times we saw this, gigantic developments in the Russian story occurred.  If the trend continues, expect something big, like finding out that Obama told the FBI Director that everything must be done “by the book.”  Oh, wait…

Finally, there was a story earlier today about Donnie Jr.’s wife getting rushed to the hospital after opening an envelope filled with a white powder.  Immediately after, Julian Assange claims the same thing happened to him last week from an envelope with an American stamp.  A few things don’t make sense with this story.  Donnie Jr. and his wife are both under United States Secret Service (USSS) protection.  Part of their standard operating procedure is to check incoming mail and packages for threats, weapons, and chemicals.  So, either this fell through the cracks, the USSS isn’t doing their job, or it’s a hoax/false flag.  As soon as J-Ass opened his mouth, I’m convinced it’s a false flag.  Expect to see a Twitter rant about this shit in the morning from the Dotard.

 

That’s it for today.  I’ve done quite a bit today on this blog, but there’s always more to do.  That’s one of the things I like and don’t like.  I can always find a new story idea.  I’m not sure what the new next one is, but I’ve wanted to write about Mueller’s Gameplan.  I think I can see where this is going, but there’s still quite a lot of unknowns involved.  Also, I’d like to expand on my alternate universe war gaming.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
