Mika Brzezinski demands twitter remove ‘sick disgusting Trump’

 

Mika of Joe Scarborough fame apparently poked the bear one too many times and the tirade began. Weeks of Joe and Mika’s apparently reached the limit. Amazing that Mika thinks she can call up twitter and banish him to the land of Oz. Perhaps she can. Yet to see the Trump’s tweets that caused her rampage.

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe went off on a rant about President Trump today, calling him “sick” and “disgusting,” and calling on Twitter’s Jack Dorsey to censor the President’s tweets. Mika told Twitter, “you should be ashamed of yourself — you’ll be hearing from me on this, because this is BS.”

“He’s tweeting again, all sorts of crazy things … once again tweeting conspiracy theories about Joe [Scarborough], falsely accusing him of murder, talking about the death of a young staffer in his congressional office years ago, and calling him dangerous to walk the streets.”

“That’s sick, Donald, you’re a sick person…to put this family through this… To do this just because you’re mad at Joe, because Joe got ya again today, because he speaks the truth, and he speaks plainly about your lack of interest and empathy in others, and your lack of ability to handle this massive human catastrophe, the fact that you’ve made it worse, and that you make it worse every day, and that you won’t even wear a mask to protect people from your germs.”

 

Then there is this?

Not the first dust up: July 2017

Mika Brzezinski said “My parents found me very difficult to educate”

Amazing isn’t it? Donald tweets about low I.Q. Mika and what should we find? Mika had admitted that she was “very difficult to educate.” I guess the Donald wasn’t so far off.

In March of 2012, co-host Joe Scarborough revealed on the show that Brzezinski’s brother once jested, “You know… Mika had the lowest SAT scores in the history of Williams College.”

 In 2012, a New York Times reporter noted that Brzezinski’s older brother and mother “have taken great delight in announcing publicly that” her “SAT scores were the lowest of any student ever accepted to Williams College.”

Brzezinski replied:

What you’re hearing about is mostly joking. But my parents had very high standards academically, and my brothers were in a lane that my father could understand and be proud of. They were intellectually far superior to me. My parents found me very difficult to educate.

When asked how low her SAT scores were, Brzezinski said, “You’re not getting that out of me. I told my daughter the other day, and she was like, ‘Wow, you better not tell anyone, Mom.’’’

So what is it all about? Something silly on a Thursday morning from the swamp.

 

Gloom, despair and agony for Biden and Warren

 

Biden packed up his tent like the thief that he is, stole away into the night and with hope for better days. He decamped and down to South Carolina he went, thinking that the brain washed black Dems will breathe life back into his campaign. No problem, leaving his hard working believers to party into the night by themselves.

We might as well add Bloomberg to the mix as his latest revelation of previous statements doesn’t seem to be going over well either.

The Hill reports that Warren and Biden combined did not even pick up as many votes as third place finisher Amy Klobuchar. Warren, who came in fourth, beat Biden by less than 1%.

“Sanders won on the strength of his leads in New Hampshire’s largest cities. He led his chief rivals in Manchester by more than 2,000 votes and in Concord and Nashua by 500 votes each. Buttigieg performed best in communities south of Manchester, in Boston sleeper suburbs and in college towns such as Hanover, home of Dartmouth College,” the Hill report noted.

Biden’s South Carolina firewall is under sustained assault from billionaire former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer, whose campaign has spent heavily to win over African American supporters. Once Super Tuesday rolls around, Biden’s support among black voters will be tested by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has spent an unprecedented amount of money on television spots.

Biden was the guy who was going to bring it home for the dems at one point, but placed fourth in Iowa and fifth in New Hampshire.

Looks like we need to keep our eye on Amy. Though she has little stash at this point and read that early voting is going on in many of the upcoming primaries,

We deplorables send our regards via Hee Haw who offers thoughts on the sad state of affairs.

 

I will add this one to the festivities.

 

Everything looking good in the swamp.

 

 

Romney and Bain Capital – his start at building an evil empire

Romney’s appears as a tortured sanctimonious man, praying profusely over his decision whether to send a spear Trump’s way in the impeachment saga. So he claims in his presentations to the media and on the Senate floor. There is much more to Mitt Romney. This noble man who is nothing more than a political hack, who made his money the old fashioned way that the Progressives so often remind us as offensive. A chip off the old block of his dad George Romney. I give you an old post about Romney – there are so many – but this one let’s us know just how he got to where he did,

“Profoundly religious” starts his motif.

Refresher: Romney and Bain Capital – a Company ‘Harvester’

How about a refresher now that Romney has arisen like the “Ghost of Christmas past.”

How easy to forget what a swamp creature he was and is, and we should not be surprised that he couldn’t even wait to be sworn in to attack Trump. His baby – Bain Capital. The harvester which bought distressed companies, attempted to make improvements, but not to worry. If they failed they simply sold their assets, went bankrupt with employees losing their pensions in some cases then on to the next – wash, rinse and repeat. He no doubt was successful. There is no doubt had a couple of super hits – Staples being one.

Here are a few snippets:

But at Bain, Romney’s top priority wasn’t to boost employment. As the Wall Street Journal recently noted, creating jobs “wasn’t the aim of Bain or other private-equity firms, which measure success by returns produced for investors.” And, the newspaper reported, Romney’s 100,000-jobs claim is tough to evaluate.

Mother Jones has obtained a video from 1985 in which Romney, describing Bain’s formation, showed how he viewed the firm’s mission. He explained that its goal was to identify potential and hidden value in companies, buy significant stakes in these businesses, and then “harvest them at a significant profit” within five to eight years.

……But this short clip offers a glimpse of Romney when he was at the start of his private equity career and saw businesses as targets of opportunity that could be harvested for the benefit of his investors, not as long-term job creators or participants in a larger community. His remarks were hardly surprising, but they did encapsulate the mindset of get-in/get-out private equity deal makers.

H/T: Mother Jones

This video was created in 1985.

Mitt Romney on Bain’s plan to buy and “harvest” companies

Oh, by the way Romney was against calling the whistle blower. Now he no longer has to worry about his involvement in the Ukraine matter. He will just say Trump is out to get him, his political adversary. See how the game works?

Romney’s National Security Adviser? Burisma Board Member Cofer Black

You see, all remains well in the swamp.

Lollapalooza! Wowie! What a long nose you have Mr Schiff!

 

Michael Atkinson

Are you curious to know more about the fellow who is the 18th witness? Whose testimony is missing from the impeachment process. Guess who? He goes by the name Atkinson – The intelligence IG Inspector.  Someone I had my eye on. Part of an earlier post of mine.

The Intelligence I.G. Atkinson – another plant by the Deep State

The former prosecutor’s resume is touted as proof that the long-time public servant only is acting in the best interest of the country; his motives are not to be questioned, we are chastised. (This description follows a pattern similar to the way the media portrayed dossier author Christopher Steele and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.) Oh but yes his motives are to be questioned!

……….In July 2016, the exact month that former FBI Director James Comey officially opened a case against the Trump campaign, Atkinson was named senior counsel to John Carlin, the head of the National Security Division. Carlin was Robert Mueller’s chief of staff when he ran the FBI and was appointed NSD chief by President Obama in 2013.

Carlin’s name has surfaced numerous times in the congressional inquiry into the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. According to closed-door testimony by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Carlin regularly was briefed by former deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe on the Trump-Russia collusion probe.Keep Reading

Recall it was Atkinson who changed the rule so that a whistleblower did not have to have direct knowledge. Hearsay was now allowed. That is just how it got started.

What a shock……

 

Short, sweet and to the point… Trump 1, Schiff 0.

Looking forward to today and more wowie!

Bonus: Guess who else has a Lollapalooza?

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

More Lollapaloozas tomorrow!

John Dingell now moves to Sainthood after Trump’s comment

 

92-year-old John Dingell dunked on celebrities, ridiculed Trump and became a Twitter favorite

John Dingell

Headline of the Washington Post announcing the death of John Dingell February 8, 2019. Now with the Kerfuffle over Trump’s comment regarding whether Dingell is looking up or down from whence he reposes presently, the likes of the ghost of McCain’s past and his memory is conjured once again. Of course, both heralded for their military service. First step met.

We are to forget that Trump’s response to Dingell’s death was this:

Trump hails longest-serving congressman in history John Dingell as ‘smart’ and ‘respected’ following his death –

‘Deepest sympathies to Congresswoman Debbie Dingell and the entire family of John Dingell. Longest serving Congressman in Country’s history which, if people understand politics, means he was very smart. A great reputation and highly respected man,’ he tweeted.

It looked like it was going to be forgive and forget time.

But the day after that, we learn what Dingell had to say on his death bed about Trump as a parting gesture similar to McCain.

 

  • He passed away on Thursday, dictating an op-ed that ran in the Washington Post the next day as one of his last acts
  • Piece that took a dig at Donald Trump ran shortly after the president tweeted his condolences to Dingell’s widow

 

Dingell’s Farewell Message to America Includes Dig at Trump …

Feb 8, 2019 DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — On the day of his death, longtime Rep. John Dingell dictated a farewell message to America and used some of his final words to criticize President Donald Trump:
In the piece she (Mrs Dingell) said he composed on Thursday, Dingell slammed Trump and reflected on his own political rise, in an environment he remembered as being much kinder.

‘In our modern political age, the presidential bully pulpit seems dedicated to sowing division and denigrating, often in the most irrelevant and infantile personal terms, the political opposition,’ he charged.

This after Trump’s kind words in spite of Dingell ragging on him all through Trump’s presidency. Dingell skewering him in his book,The Dean: The Best Seat in the House 

John Dingell on Trump | One Detroit clip

 

So easy to forget. Say it again.

On Friday, Trump ordered flags at the White House and other federal facilities lowered to half-staff in Dingell’s memory. The president also used Twitter to extend sympathies to Debbie Dingell and other family members.

 

Dingell’s opinion article was similar to a letter penned by former Arizona Sen. John McCain before his death in August from brain cancer.

In McCain’s letter, the late Arizona Republican appeared to repudiate Trump’s politics one last time, saying, “We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe.”

During his retirement years, Dingell regularly turned to Twitter to express his outrage with President Trump and the Republican Party. “Burn this entire administration down,” he tweeted in January, after Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said that he didn’t understand why furloughed federal workers needed to visit food banks during the government shutdown.

Sure the Washington Post is so kind:

But rather than hurl shrill, impassioned invective at Trump and his associates, Dingell typically preferred to crack jokes at their expense. When Melania Trump showed up to tour a shelter for migrant children in her now-infamous Zara jacket, his response was to tweet, “Boy did I pick an awkward day to wear my jacket with ‘Be Best’ scribbled on the back.”

“Safe to say @realDonaldTrump has had the least productive first 100 days in office,” he wrote in April 2017. “Except maybe Harrison, who died of pneumonia on Day 31.”

The Book: The Dean: The Best Seat in the House 

by John Dingell
Review by Kirkus Reviews
He also witnessed the rise of the tea party, which populated the House of Representatives with Republicans who had run “against the very idea of the federal government.” Now retired, he watches in frustration as “Republi-cons work overtime to destroy all we’ve achieved and more,” apparently intent “on driving things backward, to return to an America that was less clean, less safe, less fair.” To counter the “rogue president” and his supporters who, “like lemmings, will follow him over any cliff,” Dingell advises “courage and constant vigilance.”
Speaking to WDIV in Detroit last August, Dingell said that the wry commentary reflected his serious concerns about the direction that the country was heading. “I’m scared to death,” he said. And yes, he confirmed, it was really him tweeting.

NATO: Not Worth the Cost

NATO: Not Worth the Cost

by Mustang
 
President Trump has made an issue of the fact that the members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) does not pay its fair share for what it takes to maintain the alliance, and never has.  It is obvious that Mr. Trump is correct in his assessment, but I wonder if there isn’t a greater issue that he hasn’t addressed.
 

Recently built $1.3 Billion headquarters

NATO is an alliance involving 29 North American and European countries; it is a system of collective defense whereby its independent member states agree to mutually defend one another in the event of an attack by any other external party. 

The effort began in 1947 as the Treaty of Dunkirk, a mutual assistance arrangement between the United Kingdom and France.

In 1948, the alliance was expanded to include the Benelux countries and was then known as the Western Union or the Brussels Treaty Organization.  The alliance was expanded again in 1949 to include the United States, Canada, Portugal, Italy, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland.  NATO was a paper tiger until the Korean War, which by the mid-1950s provided an impetus for member nations to develop contingency plans and “standardize” military armaments/equipment.

There were no NATO operations during the Cold War, but excluding the United States, there were always doubts about the ability of member states to contribute a viable military force structure in defense of Europe.  There was always a question about the probability that member states would hold up their end of the Article Five agreement, particularly in response to aggression by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).

The Warsaw Pact arrangement collapsed in 1991 —along with the Soviet Union, which was the entire reason for the existence of NATO.  And, that being the case, one must question why NATO continues to exist.  Rather than disbanding NATO, which is what should have happened, NATO members began a strategic re-evaluation of NATO’s purpose —which I view as any combination of contingencies to justify maintaining that which has never justified its costs.

This, then, is the question: since NATO has never been a good deal for any of its member states, particularly for the United States in terms of its costs, why do we continue to fund it?

In terms of weaponry, which is the essential element in defeating an enemy, European members of NATO insisted that the United States change its armaments, at a tremendous cost to the American taxpayer. 

These were decisions that placed US combat troops in peril.  Of particular note, NATO standardization required that the United States to replace its time-proven .45 caliber pistol with 9 mm handguns —a weapon that was so ineffective that US infantry training schools began teaching their students that in order to have its greatest effect, they must shoot an enemy target twice.

Similarly, the United States was forced to replace its .30 caliber, M-1 and 7.62 mm M-14 rifles with 5.56 mm (.22 caliber) M-16s.  In Iraq, US and coalition forces using 5.56 mm rifles were overwhelmed by the enemy’s 7.62 mm AK-47’s.  This is not an issue about battlefield toys; it is about the survivability of US combat troops in a lethal environment.  But NATO did more than cost the United States more money in armaments.  NATO also caused conflict where none had previously existed.

Beyond the foregoing, Article 5 (mutual defense) is not worth the paper it is written on.  No member state is obligated to render aid to another because no state commit its national treasury to war simply because of some obscure agreement signed in 1949 that most members states avoid paying for.

NATO is a cold war relic —one that the United States should scrap.  The world may have changed since 1949, but NATO hasn’t.  It was at the beginning, and continues now, as an unnecessary drain on the US treasury and the American taxpayer.
