    Ouch.

    Does Trump understand the need to vet his choices? Presidential picks have to avoid even the appearance of corruption.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Every one of Trump's picks so far is going to turn out to be a major embarrassment.

    And dangerous.

    Let's just hope he doesn't do a switcharoo and become a Democrat again.

    He'd be appointing Anthony Weiner and Rod Blagojevich....

    There's a pattern to what he's doing. He's proposing people who are either ridiculous choices or people whose name he has been given by special interest groups (and whom he probably has little clue who they are). After the backlash, the spokesperson says the rumored nominee is not in the running. Meanwhile, Trump is breaking nearly all of the false campaign promises he made and he's continuing to pursue his private business interests.

    This is all classic trickster sleight-of-hand. The media, as usual, can only cover the topic-of-the-day (or the Tweet-of-the-day, as the case may be). Only his fellow entertainers seem to get it.

    The only reason I can see for him switching parties at this point is if Congressional Republicans block his jobs bill.

    Like the climate-change denier he picked for the EPA.

    I keep hoping we'll get smart and let scientists pick the head of organizations that are about doing science. I've been hoping that, though, since 1987 or so, without luck.

    He could found a new party. Call it the Interdependent Party, advocating making megacorporations and government interdependent.

    hahahaha


    What a difference a week makes.

    Apparently, dissension among the ranks has broken out 'bigly' with the possible appointment of Mittens Romney for SoS and the appointment process seems to be getting bogged down as the top tier picks are seeing the end of their careers flashing before their eyes.

    And the picks he has made or offered look like he's still trolling Americans.

    Trump has selected the busiest man in his administration for the next four years...his White House Counsel.

    Good luck.

    Re: Trump Staff Picks

    This is a pretty chilling look at the person under consideration for Drumpf's Minister of Propaganda Press Secretary....

    Laura Ingraham, a close Trump ally currently under consideration to be Trump’s White House press secretary, owns an online publisher called Ingraham Media Group that runs a number of sites, including LifeZette, a news site that frequently posts articles of dubious veracity. One video produced by LifeZette this summer, ominously titled “Clinton Body Count,” promoted a conspiracy theory that the Clinton family had some role in the plane crash death of John F. Kennedy, Jr., as well as the deaths of various friends and Democrats.


    The video, published on Facebook from LifeZette’s verified news account, garnered over 400,000 shares and 14 million views.

    Kellyanne Conway is in deep shit after saying that Trump is betraying his followers by supporting Mittens Romney for SoS.

    The battle rages on.

    Now it looks like Petraeus could end up with the spot. Yeah. That Petraeus.

    The same one.

    Petraeus’s government career collapsed after revelations that he had an extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, and shared classified documents with her. He resigned from the CIA in November 2012 and avoided a criminal trial by agreeing to a plea deal in April 2015. It required him to serve two years on probation and pay a $100,000 fine on a misdemeanor charge of unauthorized possession of classified information.
    FBI Director James Comey, who oversaw both the Petraeus and Clinton investigations, (said) in a July 7 hearing, he told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that Petraeus’s behavior was worse than Clinton’s, saying that he deliberately “lied” when first questioned by investigators.
    “So you have obstruction of justice, you have intentional misconduct and a vast quantity of information” that was highly classified, Comey said. “He admitted he knew that was the wrong thing to do. That is a perfect illustration of the kind of cases that get prosecuted.”

    ^ My suspicion after watching the most craven capitulation by the GOP over the last year is that none of his picks will have a hard time.

    Filibuster as they might, the minority Democrats probably won't be able to change the outcome.

    And to be honest, I'm not sure that Petraeus is a bad choice...although having a general for SoS is again a kind of third world move.

    It is just the rancid hypocrisy that is wafting from Trump Towers these days.............

    The Democratic Senate gutted the filibuster rule, so they now die by the sword.

    But it appears as though another fox has been put in charge of the henhouse with the appointment of Representative Tom Price of Georgia, an orthopedic surgeon and a fervent opponent of the Affordable Care Act, on Tuesday to be his secretary of health and human services.

    Mr. Price, who has focused much of his work in Congress on trying to insulate physicians from the dictates and price controls of agencies that would be under his control if he is confirmed, responded on Tuesday:

    There is much work to be done to ensure we have a health care system that works for patients, families and doctors; that leads the world in the cure and prevention of illness; and that is based on sensible rules to protect the well-being of the country while embracing its innovative spirit.
    Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the incoming minority leader, was not happy:

    “Congressman Price has proven to be far out of the mainstream of what Americans want when it comes to Medicare, the Affordable Care Act and Planned Parenthood. Thanks to those three programs, millions of American seniors, families, people with disabilities and women have access to quality, affordable health care. Nominating Congressman Price to be the H.H.S. secretary is akin to asking the fox to guard the hen house.”

    The problem is that after all the hue and cry over the past year about email servers, it's going to be difficult to confirm a former administration official who leaked top secret material to his mistress (i.e. a woman who was not his wife).

    Or is it only lock her up?

    Having scoffed at Hillary's exposure of thousands of emails , the democrats can hardly object to Petraeus.

    The outrage is all faux.

    No one really cares if a man was proven to have leaked official secrets while he was porking his mistress.

    But the demonizing of that woman required that everyone buy into the narrative that she actually had somehow purposefully leaked classified information by having the smae private server set-up as her predecessors.

    Just more of the rancid GOP hypocrisy.

    Having accepted that it is okay for Petraeus to have done something which was seen as much, much worse, the Republicans must now admit that the outrage over Hillary's emails was phony all along.

    In the alternate reality of false equivalencies, even this is a stretch. I seem to recall about half a dozen [Republican] Congressional investigations and an FBI inquiry that did not result in an indictment over emails that, incidentally, would be available to the public under FOIA.

    Petraeus was indicted and he took a plea deal, pleading guilty to a misdemeanor. The deal was offered only because the classified materials in his personal notebooks (that he gave to his biographer, Paula Broadwell) didn't get leaked to the public.

    And of course, the investigation uncovered that Petraeus was having an affair with his biographer. Both Petraeus and Broadwell were married to other people- an affair which was a violation of UCMJ. Another distinguished career ruined by OPP.

    It's a wonder that anyone does public service anymore. I long for the good old days when people were disqualified for not paying SSDI for their kid's nanny... or not declaring a chauffeur service on one's taxes...

    Democrats always want to hold Republicans to a higher standard. What is really happening is that when the Clintons get away with crap it pulls downs the bar for future politicians. Petraeus paid for his violation, Hillary has not. Now the dems want to raise the bar again. Low bar for Clintons, high bar for Republicans.

    Suffice it to say that the Trump administration will be the biggest clusterfuck in history. P.S. He chose Mitch McConnell's wife to be his Transportation Secretary. I guess Trump is willing to suck a little Mitch dick to get something done in the Senate.

    Always a stranger to the truth, Benvolio has been inspired by the new Liar in Chief.

    But unlike the gormless followers of der Fuhrer, a lot of us actually read the words as they were spoken or written.

    No he found she had been "extremely careless" in handling classified information . Under the statute "intentional or grossly negligent" handling is a crime. He did not explain why he did not prosecute. Lawyers scoff at any pretended difference between extremely careless and grossly negligent.

    So you're saying the Republicans cannot be held to a higher standard? What are they... mired in mediocrity?

    Funny how Ben slips into talking about lawyers in the third person when he's talking about things that he'd like to believe are the law.
    Blah blah blah, something enigmatic sounding...

    Re: Trump Staff Picks

    To avoid the continued promulgation of inaccurate information, the actual 5-Jul-2016 statement by Comey can be found on the FBI website.

    As a point of reference, the DOJ/FBI generally only comments when evidence supporting prosecution is found. The act of making a statement about a non-prosecution is, in itself, unprecedented and reflects the political nature of the investigation.

    Anyway, here's the actual substance of the Comey statement (I added bolding to emphasize the key parts):

    Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case...

    In looking back at our investigations into mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here.
    ...let me tell you what we found:

    Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information...

    None of these e-mails should have been on any kind of unclassified system, but their presence is especially concerning because all of these e-mails were housed on unclassified personal servers not even supported by full-time security staff, like those found at Departments and Agencies of the U.S. Government—or even with a commercial service like Gmail.

    Separately, it is important to say something about the marking of classified information. Only a very small number of the e-mails containing classified information bore markings indicating the presence of classified information. But even if information is not marked “classified” in an e-mail, participants who know or should know that the subject matter is classified are still obligated to protect it.
    He specifically quantified the number of emails (30,000+) and the small number of chains (52) of that group that contained classified information, including how many were top secret (8):
    From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.
    He also specifically called out accusations about "deleted emails":
    I should add here that we found no evidence that any of the additional work-related e-mails were intentionally deleted in an effort to conceal them. Our assessment is that, like many e-mail users, Secretary Clinton periodically deleted e-mails or e-mails were purged from the system when devices were changed. Because she was not using a government account—or even a commercial account like Gmail—there was no archiving at all of her e-mails, so it is not surprising that we discovered e-mails that were not on Secretary Clinton’s system in 2014, when she produced the 30,000 e-mails to the State Department.
    Your tax dollars at work:
    The government hasn't disclosed how much was spent on these investigations. One of the reasons that it is difficult to put a price tag on the investigations is that the "email" investigation was actually an outgrowth of the Benghazi investigation. There were nine Benghazi investigations. The Democratic minority on one of those committees has a counter website that estimates the cost of one of these investigations at about $8.7 million dollars.

    A conservative think tank estimated that it took about $20 million to review the emails.

    FYI: the annual salary for the US Secretary of State is $186,600.

    But, you omitted this part:
    "Our investigation looked at whether there is evidence classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system, in violation of a federal statute making it a felony to mishandle classified information either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way, or a second statute making it a misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified information from appropriate systems or storage facilities."

    So, yes it is against the law to mishandle in a "grossly negligent" which legally is no different from "extremely careless", so yes, she did break the law and there was no explanation why she was not prosecuted for it.

    Jesus Christ.

    Can't you fucking read?

    They determined it hadn't been handled in a grossly negligent way which is why there were no charges to bring...no law broken.

    There is a world of difference between Extremely careless and grossly negligent which a real lawyer would understand.

    You just keep making shit up.

    Well this made me throw up my frogs legs....




    Having forced all the other Republicans to eat his shit....Trump served Romney Crow at their intimate dinner.

    Another capitulation.

    Hopefully Romney gags every time he thinks of this dinner until the day he dies.

    Is there not one Republican left with the integrity of their convictions?

    ^ Yeah...nothing like having BIG COAL represented by the Secretary of Commerce.

    Get ready for a big push on coal powered cars and the abolition of the EPA.

    Maybe he'll create a new coal oil lamp industry.

    ^ I am meeting with my financial advisors on Monday to plot out a strategy....everything he's promising to do is going to crash the US economy within four years.

    So I want to figure out how to make out like a bandit while he and his cronies build the bubble and how to pull out this time ahead of the great crash.

    And a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, an alma mater of Occidental College, Columbia, magna cum laude of Harvard University Law School and teacher of constitutional law at Chicago University.

    But ignorant fucks don't care about any of that.

    Much better a clown who inherited so much wealth he's poorer at age 70 than he was at the time of his inheritance.

    Of course Ben's dislike of Obama has nothing to do with race, but he does use the talking points that everyone else who dresses hatred in PC does.
