    I also notice that reading comprehension can vary whether someone reads something about their side or an opposing side. There is a resistance to wanting to see that the other side may have a logical point. There can be an opposing philosophical POV with both sides being logical. People forget that. I think people prefer to think of others as caricatures rather than as people. It is a short cut to thinking as Jim Morrison put it.

    My point (that seems to have been completely misunderstood by some) is that the "facts" look different from opposing sides. People who support someone who is accused claim the accusers are lying and those who do not support the accused claim the accused is lying. Not sure how this has become a point of contention but hey, there you have it...

    Former Assistant FBI Director James Kallstrom unloaded on James Comey, Robert Mueller, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama Thursday, charging that major crimes "20 times bigger than Watergate" are being swept under the rug … " was a political hack … I think he maybe started out in an honorable way. His opinion of himself is sky high -- just an unbelievable guy with just an arrogance about him…. It got him in trouble because I think he thought he was Superman and he found out that he wasn’t." … "The dogs are always going to bite your heels when you’re dealing with the Clintons," he explained. … "the American people have been dealing with the crime syndicate known as the Clinton Foundation … just look at what's in the public domain. The Clintons have been taking advantage of their stations in life for so long." … "Back in '95, '96 … Bill Clinton let our guidance technology for our ICBM missiles go to China." … And then a few years down the road, "we sell 20 percent of our uranium," … referencing the corrupt Uranium One deal that routed millions of Russian dollars to the Clinton Foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on the federal government’s Committee on Foreign Investment. … Rosenstein was basically put in place at the DOJ by the Democrats , complaining that Sessions was forced to recuse himself while "this huge forest fire is burning up” … Then … naming this counsel … and putting Mueller, who has a conflict of interest 20 miles wide, in on the job."

    Another Good Commentary on Nikki Haley;s Foreign Policy Idiocy: Nikki Haley is not good at foreign policy. … as America’s envoy to the UN, her most noteworthy moments have been two incoherent diatribes on Iran. The first–an airing of grievances passed off as justification for killing the Iran nuclear deal … Yesterday, she doubled down with a speech trying to make the case that Iran is, among other things, supplying Houthis in Yemen with ballistic missiles … There are a variety of problems with Haley’s assertions. … First, Haley cited a UN report in her claim regarding Iranian missile transfers to the Houthis. Of course, the UN has reached no such conclusion. Instead, a panel of experts concluded that fired missile fragments show components from an Iranian company, but they have “no evidence as to the identity of the broker or supplier.” … Analysts from the U.S. Department of Defense speaking to reporters at Haley’s speech openly acknowledged that they do not know the missiles’ origin. Perhaps most surreal is the very same UN report cited by Haley also says the missile included a component that was manufactured by an American company. … It was therefore appalling to see that Haley’s speech reference Yemen and not include a single word about America’s ongoing military, intelligence, and logistical support for the Saudi-led humanitarian catastrophe taking place. … in addition to bolstering Iran’s influence in country where it was previously negligible, the Saudi-led debacle has also empowered al-Qaeda …

    FBI Evil Deeds One of the unfortunate ironies of the manufactured “Russiagate” controversy is the perception of the FBI as a friend of liberty and justice. But the FBI has never been a friend of liberty and justice. … “has a long record of both deceit and incompetence. Five years ago, Americans learned that the FBI was teaching its agents that ‘the FBI has the ability to bend or suspend the law to impinge on the freedom of others.’ This has practically been the Bureau’s motif since its creation in 1908…. The FBI has always used its ‘good guy’ image to keep a lid on its crimes.” … Take the case of Michael Flynn … Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in connection with conversations he had with Russia’s then-ambassador to the United States … One need not be an admirer of Flynn … to be disturbed by how the FBI has handled this case. One ought to be immediately suspicious whenever someone is charged with or pleads guilty to lying to the FBI without any underlying crime … When the FBI questioned Flynn about his conversations with Kislyak, it already had the transcripts of those conversations … the FBI asked Flynn about his conversations with Kislyak, apparently to test him. If he lied … or had a bad memory, he could have been charged with lying to the FBI.

    From Moon of Alabama: Nitwit Nikki Haley's Colin Powell "Irrefutable Evidence" Moment Crumbles as a Lie Her props were alleged missile parts recovered somewhere at some unknown time. She claimed that these were provided by the Saudis and the UAE and showed debris of missiles fired from Yemen. Haley further claimed that Iran had delivered such missiles to Yemen … There are several possible explanations of where the Houthi and their then allied Yemeni army might have acquired such missiles. But even if one accepts that Iran delivered these, it is unknown when such deliveries might have taken place. It could have happened years before … Haley claimed that the UN had found that the missile debris on display was from an Iranian Qiam missile. But the UN has made no such findings. It only said that the debris and Qiam missiles "had similar structural and manufacturing features". The Iranian Qiam missile .... is a short-range ballistic missile designed and built by Iran. It was developed from the Iranian Shahab-2, a licensed copy of the North Korean Hwasong-6, all of which are versions of the Soviet Scud-C missile. There are many variants of the Soviet Scud family (A, B, C) produced in various countries and they naturally all have "similar structural and manufacturing features". The Yemeni military bought Soviet Scuds … The Yemeni military also bought North Korean Hwasong 5 and likely also Hwasong 6 missiles directly from North Korea. The Yemeni army has over 30 years of experience with such missiles and qualified personal to modify these …

    Logic fail. I voted every year from 1976 up until 2016 when I finally realized the futility of it. Did you ever stop to think that the only way to prevent it is if enough people refused to vainly try to pick who their next master will be? At any rate, blaming it on somebody besides those who are guilty is pure deflection.

    Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom called disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok a "total moron" who belongs in Leavenworth federal prison … Kallstrom, a former Marine captain and Vietnam veteran, told FBN host Liz MacDonald that if an FBI agent wanted to stop someone from becoming President, "I think he can do what tried to do," adding "He can fabricate things, he can make stuff up, he can lie, he can be a total moron." "You know, he belongs in Leavenworth this guy, in my personal view." … Kallstrom's comments come after two weeks of stunning revelations about the FBI's top brass actively engaging in an effort to help then-candidate Hillary Clinton by "decriminalizing" her actions in the email case, while pursuing a case against then-candidate Donald Trump - using a discredited 34-page 'Trump-Russia' dossier to launch an investigation … text messages sent between Peter Strzok … and his FBI-Attorney mistress Lisa Page emerged, GOP lawmakers honed in on a specific exchange in which Strzok references an "insurance policy" in the "unlikely event" Trump was elected President. …

    I know. He went crazy (literally) on me a year ago. As for the the drunk accusation that I mentioned-- that was for people in generaI. I have more respect for someone who posts something crazy and admits to being drunk vs someone claiming to be a teetotaler. A day of drunkenness is better than a lifetime of crazy.
