    Mooch made himself the political equivalent of a suicide bomber. Took out Spicer and Preibus, and then himself in the bargain.

    Yeah but it sure is entertaining... I was hoping this guy stayed on for at least a few months, it would have been a ton of fun!


    I bet Jon Stewart is sorry he retired when he did.

    ha ha ha. You said "orange". It's edgy comedy like that that keeps me coming back to this place.


    BTW, Scaramucci never actually worked for trump. He was slated to start officially tomorrow (Aug 1) for no pay.

    Likewise, Goldenequitie's posts are full of details that most gloss over. I gloss over many, mostly because I watch Southfront on youtube every day, and read RT (RT has relevant headlines, unlike American MSM which just ignores tons of important geopolitical stories).

    There are NATO ratlines (Dyncorp etc.) which operate within Military 'privilege'.
    There are CIA ratlines (Clinton Foundation etc.) which operate within Diplomatic 'privilege'.
    Both filthy. Both compete. Both infest DC and have Congress by the balls.
    Trump had to pick one. He chose Pentagon. He had to.
    It is a valid theory.
    You say he had to. I have said he is choosing military officers for a reason as well. Why do you think he chose the pentagon, or had to choose the pentagon?

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Make no mistake about it: Trump likes the appearance of chaos. He stirs the pot so the media will stay focused on the smokescreen while he quietly goes on with work, like putting up really top knotch constructionist judges to fill slot after slot.

    You know who likes Trump? Rand and the Judge. Do they think he is perfect? No, far from it. But there are reason that they legitimately like him, and both of them are really smart, so maybe it's just you who isn't quite bright enough to see the overall positive impact he is having. I mean, you're basically repeating and clinging onto the mainstream media toolbag narrative, do you realize that is what you are doing? Every time you or TheCount or zippy or the late CPUd come in here it sounds like somebody turned on CNN. Do you understand that? Do you understand why liberty minded folks are turned off by that bull$#@!?

    I think so, too. During the hearings, it was clear he had a better grasp on the players and how they connect than the Senate committee did. He attached meaning to all the relationships. Very sharply focused mind.

    Rand said he would vote for Trump to favor the Republican party since he was their candidate. Doesn't mean he likes him- just recognizes that he won the party nomination and the Presidency and he has to deal with him. Ron Paul said he could never vote for Trump and warned that he was anti- Libertarian.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...us-authoritar/

    Ron Paul calls Donald Trump a ‘dangerous’ authoritarian: ‘The opposite of a Libertarian’


    Former Republican Rep. Ron Paul on Wednesday blasted GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump as a “dangerous” authoritarian on a power trip who won’t value civil liberties the way a U.S. president should.

    “I think he’s is a dangerous person,” saidMr. Paul, whose son, Sen. Rand Paul is running against Mr. Trump for the Republican presidential nomination.

    “And a lot of people find him sort of funny, and love him, even Libertarian types,” Mr. Paul, who is now a registered Libertarian, lamented on Fox News Radio. “They like him because he’s so disruptive to the party system, and I enjoy that too. But I think he’s a man that if conditions deteriorate, which they can — see I work on the assumption that the world is no more stable than Greece, and if those conditions come, people want to be told what to do: ‘And I know what the answer is, and I’ll do this, and I am the man to this.’

    “And [Mr. Trump] comes across this very well, and people listen to him, and I believe he may be raising white horses someplace and he’s going to ride in,” Mr. Paul continued. “Because he is almost the opposite of a Libertarian, because it’s not like ‘I want to give you your freedom and your liberty to run your life as you choose. Your civil liberties are absolutely yours, you can’t hurt anybody, it’s your own money you can spend it any way you want.’ But he sounds like the person, ‘I know the answers and I’m going to do this and I’ve done this, I’ve done this, this and this.’”
    Rand: http://www.politico.com/story/2016/0...t-trump-217710

    He also said the reason he would support Trump is that establishment Republicans did the same thing when he won the Republican nomination for Senate in Kentucky. "That's the way party politics work, is people come around and support the nominee. But we're a long way away from that," Paul said.

    The comment is in contrast with the nasty relations between Paul and the billionaire businessman. Paul was one of the earliest and most direct critics of Trump as polls showed him rising to the top of the Republican presidential field.
