I kind of wonder what would happen to Trump's "policies" if Miller were somehow removed. It's obvious he's the one doing most of the planning. I imagine Trump's administration would basically be done at that point and enter true lame duck territory. He's not going to listen to any of his other advisers and he sure as hell won't think up policies on his own.

Media journalists and former intelligence and DOJ lawyers basically sat on Barr's entire past for months.
The Iran-Contra stuff didn't get brought up, including his part in pushing for pardons and many of them.

I kind of wonder what would happen to Trump's "policies" if Miller were somehow removed.
They'd be tone down, less focused, and sporadic.

Dude is incapable of weighing in on any topic without pretending that he could somehow do it better.


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets said:
“It was definitely a curse that killed her–probably the Transmogrifian Torture–I’ve seen it used so many times, so unlucky I wasn’t there, I know the very countercurse that would have saved her….”

The photographs of Lockhart on the walls were all nodding in agreement as he talked.

Hmmm, I also wonder why they don’t air drop 6 tons of water onto an ancient building in the middle of a densely populated city... 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Stupid orange bag of shit.

I finally got to visit Note Dame four months ago. It was an amazing experience, and I'm not Catholic. I was planning to go and sit in a pew again for awhile this year. This fire actually physically hurts. I have a dreadful pit in my stomach.

I fired up AC Unity from its long slumber to give my wife an idea of the location and proportions of the spire. The stained glass is probably a loss, too. Unfortunate, at least the fire in the tower looks like it's mostly extinguished.

Pete is still my #3. I could easily see him bump Warren out of #2, but I still can't shake this leery feeling. He needs to get put on the spot with more issues to see where his natural inclinations lie.

Warren's proposals recently have really been whiffs IMO. Totally unrealistic at best, and completely unhelpful at worst. She's got the fire, but none of that shit is ever going to fly.

Have at it. Shame this didn't come up during his confirmation.
Wouldn't have made a difference.

Lets hope this doesn't die on the vine due to lack of donations. Curious to see if there's much appetite for a republican-turned-libertarian-turned republican nevertrumper.
He has zero chance of winning the nomination, but at least it gives trump something to focus on other than democrats.

Also, it's 5 pm est, where's bernie's tax returns. Fucker has something to hide, doesn't he?

The threat to Trump isn’t Weld himself but Weld gaining even a little traction, because that could open the floodgates for nevertrump Republican candidates.
How is this even going to work? The RNC is already toast due to the Trump campaign and Russia connections, "clean" candidates can't get plugged into it or draw from it.

Honestly if I don’t have much of a preference between the top Dem contenders I’ll cross over and vote for Weld. It’s piss-easy to do in Minnesota anyway.

OMG The Onion stays amazing:

"It’s unconscionable to think that this so-called American would use a vile term like ‘place’ to describe the shining city upon a hill without so much as mentioning its spacious skies or amber waves of grain."

WASHINGTON—In a scathing attack on the very foundations of democracy and everything the United States stands for, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) disrespectfully referred Monday to America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, as “a place.” “It’s unconscionable to think that this so-called American would use a vile term like ‘place’ to describe the shining city upon a hill without so much as mentioning its spacious skies or amber waves of grain,” said Maryland resident Greg Blankford, echoing the sentiments of the 327 million patriots condemning the freshman congresswoman’s characterization of the nation as “a location” as anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, and anti-American. “Maybe to her it’s just a country, but to the rest of us, it’s a country whose brave soldiers died to protect our freedom. At no point did she even try to correct her mistake by saying the word ‘troops’ or saluting the nearest flag and crying. What a monster.” At press time, Americans across the country demanded that Omar apologize by dressing from head to toe in patriotic American flag clothing, pulling out a fife, and performing a stirring rendition of “Yankee Doodle.”
