I would prefer people treat tRump as he treats those of us who disagree with him

6:20 Exercise instead of food today, hmmm?

Two words - Manafort! YAY !!!

IG Report - Rachel also analyzed it in detail ... if anyone has the time. Incidentally, my impression was that Hillary, Colin, and Condoleeza did not, none of them, use personal email accounts, as Comey did. They used a private server which was dedicated to government business and government email accounts. By all means correct me if I am wrong.

TNY - From Andy's keyboard to God's monitor.

TP - Oh, yeah. ALL Americans. Well, never me. And never you, TC. Orange Judas - I am NOT YOUR people.

Cartoon - If that's not updated, there must be more today. Lots more.

MSNBC: I agree with your analysis regarding this, well said.

NYer: Yep, he's got his boots on, and with that creepy smile of his, he's a 'shoe-in'. lol Andy

TP: omg! NOT in your wildest dreams! Ever! Word, Joanne, Word.

Cartoon: Very sad.

Hope that you start feeling better. Get your rest, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

YT: So even if Hilary was guilty of misusing her e-mail, Comey was the pot calling the kettle black.

TNY: The truth is probably even more ludicrous.

TP: That settles it: Donald tRump is EVIL.

Cartoon: Was that just the mass shootings of 2011? Even if those were all the mass shootings that took place during the Cubs' World Series drought, they would be too many.

MSNBC: “Chutzpah on steroids times a million,” now, apparently suits Comey. There is also another Yiddishism which works as a descriptor for Comey: Schmuck! And, no, Rosenstein is not the FBI director. Another problem with the FBI’s image, not mentioned in the report, is the naming of the building after the Machiavellian scum bag Hoover!
Manafort in jail is wonderful!

5:19. MSNBC: The more we discuss this, the more it appears the GOP was (and is) going out of their way to make the FBI look bad, with the idea in mind that the general public won't trust anything they do. And with the current idiot in charge making sure everything that comes out of his mouth regarding the FBI, the press, and everyone who disagrees with him is negative, some people will eventually believe it's true.

TNY: I'd be happy to see him go to NK. One less potential dictator in the House.

TP: We have a potential dictator on our hands and the supremacists are cheering. Talk about traitors...

Thanks for the post, TomCat. Hope you get some sleep tonight.

Oops! I posted under the 14th by accident.

Puzzle --- 5:00 All that glitters is not real gold. This is definitely not one of my favourite puzzles.

MSNBC --- When it comes to the email situation, is this one of the IOKIYAR scenarios? I agree with JD that Clinton and others used private servers while Comey used gmail or other such email platform on a public server. For someone so concerned about perceptions, this definitely is strange to have let slip.

The New Yorker --- I hope Drumpf told Kim there is a "No Returns" policy! LMAO!!!

Think Progress --- A true Axis of Evil --- Drumpf and Kim Jong-Un! Drumpf is, at this point, a dictator in waiting but is getting closer to being a maniacal dictator like Kim. Right now, the constitution stands in his way as well as those willing to oppose him. But with Republicans toadies playing their power and greed games, things could change quickly. I should remind Republicans that that even Kim's generals etc and family members are known to "disappear" so I doubt toadie Republicans would be safe from Drumpf's reach.

Cartoon --- As if we need a reminder when it happens so often. That map definitely needs updating, although it would be even more depressing.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

It is unfortunate that you did not get a decent sleep. But I definitely understand the hay fever issue. I could not ditch the hay fever symptoms yesterday as I went about my business. The cottonwood and broom are still especially bad right now. I actually got a good night's sleep last night but I also resort to using trazadone if I don't need to be up early. Having said that, it is all in the timing of its use. Great that it is not addictive, but the ensuing good sleep is addictive! I hope tonight is better!

MSNBC: I can understand that the FBI in this media age was/is worried about its image. Only a few months ago, when Drumpf went in full attack, it was remarked upon the irony that old hippies were now defending their arch-enemy FBI. The FBI also must have felt very uncomfortable under the constant pressure of Republicans and Drumpf to look into Hillary/Obama/Democrats/Black Lives Matter/…anything on the left really. The FBI appears to have fought very hard to become independent truth finders in the past decades, and believed they had succeeded, but now they must have thought they started to look like government bloodhounds again. So they tried to booster their image (no one else would) but failed miserably as amateurs. Stupid, messy and with dire consequences, but not criminal. Comey’s use of personal e-mail accounts is another kettle of fish; black kettle, that is.

TNY: Wow, Drumpf really gave all away without anything in return, didn’t he. 🤣
