This dude's reputation is mixed but if this is only half way exaggerated today is one to mark on the calendar. Like every other day in the last two years.

Breaking News: Attorney General Sessions Has Fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe – Balloon Juice

Get ready for a lawsuit, which will open up all kinds of discovery as a result. There's a bunch of other weird shit about this as well, including that Fox News had a story up about it before its official announcement. And obviously the Shitgibbon Administration hasn't read the biography of W. Mark Felt in awhile. I'll probably edit in more here later.

Even compared to a lot of the other stuff Trump has done, firing McCabe just 26 hours before he would have been able to collect his full pension is just incredibly petty, cruel and vindictive.


Of course, Republicans have been demonizing public servants since at least the Reagan Administration, so Trump's base will doubtless think that cruelly denying McCabe his pension after 21 years of service is just great.


McCabe has some choice words regarding his firing.




You know what I want to see more than anything else? I want to see Trump and Pence (and a lot of his supporters) marched out of the White House in chains and off to jail for their myriad crimes and for their incredibly brazen corruption. Alas, there's no chance in Hell of that happening, I know. At this point, I can't help but suspect that if Trump raped and then murdered a nun on live television, his supporters (and virtually every GOP Congresscritter, and FOX "News") would insist that "She had it coming!" and would praise him for "having the courage to do what needed to be done."

Jewish guy writes thrad.

David Rothkopf on Twitter: "A couple days ago I saw a Tweet reiterating the U.S. Census Bureau's conclusion that by 2045 groups once thought of us as minorities--Asians, Latinos and African Americans would make up the majority of the U.S. population. This trend has been a long time coming."

Trump faces double lawsuit threat from ex-Playboy model and Apprentice star | US news | The Guardian

Quote:
A New York state judge ruled on Tuesday that a defamation lawsuit filed against Trump by Summer Zervos, a contestant on his former reality show The Apprentice, can go ahead.

Also on Tuesday, a former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, who claimed she had an affair with Trump, sued to be released from a 2016 legal agreement requiring her silence.

Zervos accuses him of sexual harassment, and the go-ahead to proceed in the case raises the possibility of Trump being forced to answer questions by her lawyers about his behavior toward her and other women who have accused him of sexual misconduct.

Judge Jennifer Schecter in Manhattan supreme court said there was “absolutely no authority” to dismiss or stay a civil lawsuit by Zervos related “purely to unofficial conduct” just because Trump is president of the US.
Welp.

BTW, if you appreciate the Cambridge Analytica stories* that have been coming out these past few days, you should probably throw the Gruaniad some dough if you can afford it, since they did a large part of the investigative work on them.

*There have been more stories since these, but I honestly haven't been able to keep abreast of them all. Maybe this weekend.


(Also, apropos of nothing, this is apparently my 4,444th [or MVCDXLIVth] post. I rarely remember to make note of milestones here, but I randomly happened to notice this one, so cool, I guess.)

I was assured by many on the left that Trump was a dove, and Trump's election was a rejection of neoconservatism. Some of them even prefer Trump for foreign policy reasons!

So I'm sure they will be pleased to hear the news that John Bolton, noted anti-war activist and critic of neoconservatism, will be in such an important position!

Nobody could've predicted that Trump was full of shit just because he was lying about having opposed various wars, or that his violent rhetoric, narcissistic machismo, impulsiveness, and frequent endorsements of war crimes might be a better indicator of where he would go as president.

But he hasn't started a new major war yet, I guess. I mean, he has expanded bombing campaigns and killed civilians at a higher rate than Obama over his first year, and he's empowering warmongers, but we don't know what will happen. So we might as well assume that the fact that it looks like he's moving in a bad direction doesn't mean much, whereas we know Clinton lusted to start WW3 and/or drop bombs on Tehran or whatever.



We're probably in the clear, after all, Trump has the "non-interventionist mindset" and his selection of John Bolton shouldn't sway us from that opinion.

Really? Who are these "many" people who "assured" you of this? Can you name even one, much less "many"?

Of course you can't.
