If Trump Ever Gets Word of This Scandal

Posted by AllardK on October 19, 2018 at 1:11 PM

Black Americans for the President's Agenda have run a radio ad in Arkansas' 2nd district that is unsubtle to put it politely and seems to try to blend Jim Crow with Justice Kavanaugh's hearings on Capitol Hill. The man the ad is either supporting or targeting seems to be the district's GOP representative French Hill, a moderately wonky Republican who served at Treasury and at the Economy Policy Council for Bush 41 and has fairly extensive experience in the financial industry. And of course has been the 2nd district's representative since 2014.

A Texas 2-Seater on a Blue-Green Wave

Posted by AllardK on October 18, 2018 at 2:56 PM

It would have been near the end of 4th grade that the Time - or was it Newsweek? - cover lay on the living room table with the photographs of Bobby Kennedy dying or dead in a horrifying pool of blood. I remember the face, the photographs of the smiling man who had somehow reignited voters in as turbulent a time as America is now living through. Those buck teeth and those piercing but wounded eyes. The excitement was real, even if RFK sucked as a candidate for the first few months and even years until he started to catch fire in the spring of 68.

The Chinese Chip That Could Steal Your Data

Posted by AllardK on October 11, 2018 at 10:44 PM

How safe are your servers? The ones up in "The Cloud" that is. Of course, the cloud is a bunch of servers warehoused in some secure facility usually near fairly cheap power sources, like hydroelectric facilities in Washington State, for example. They're designed to be more efficient and safer than your humble laptop which you would never safeguard the way Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon safeguard your data, right?

That depends apparently.

Trump & Rosenstein - The Unbloody Flight to Orlando

Posted by AllardK on October 9, 2018 at 4:22 PM

There must be a bit of frustration at The Hill. At the Hill. I didn't write ON the Hill. At the venerable DC institution that provides one of the more wonky and detailed looks at the innards of government - albeit from a firmly left-of-center perspective - John T. Bennett had it all lined up. A breathless report on a conversation between President Trump and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein that was to be held on the President's flight to Orlando.

The Flake Elevator Ambush was Well-Planned and Well-Financed

Posted by AllardK on October 3, 2018 at 3:42 PM

Ana Maria Archila was one of the two women who confronted Senator Jeff Flake in a Capitol Hill elevator in what has quickly become a viral video. But according to the now rather famous Archila - an apparent survivor of sexual assault - it was not about confrontation when she demanded that the senator look her in the eye, it was about connecting. Here's Archila on Monday on CBS News speaking about the event:

Nothing is Political - Everything Can Be Politicized

Posted by AllardK on September 27, 2018 at 9:56 PM

If everything is political, then nothing really is. Because if the fact that your cat hissed at a friend's 4-year old kid who wanted to play with her is political, then the word becomes meaningless. So, perhaps the better phrase would be...Nothing is political, but everything can be politicized.

Obama Admin Full Out To Git Trump

Posted by Roy Ellis on September 19, 2018 at 11:39 AM

Astounding that John Kerry, ex-DOS, has visited Iran several times since President Trump was elected. We can assume he has retained a security clearance like other retired VIP's. Would be understandable if he were making these visits at the behest of the President, but he is not.

Disband The dim Party - NOW

Posted by Roy Ellis on September 12, 2018 at 8:51 PM

I've watched politics as a general matter for something like 50 years. Any rational person with some modicum of common sense knows when politicians are lying, SOME of the time.

Julia Salazar's Crazed & Desperate Story Telling - Part 2

Posted by AllardK on September 12, 2018 at 1:45 PM

Julia Salazar's attempted reconstruction of her life story - as described in Part One - is one that cheapens the older, deeper and far more real narratives that weave together to make up America's astonishing history. The candidate for New York State Senator is perhaps familiar with some of these older narratives and perhaps even saw them as a perfect opportunity.
