​Criticizing Comey is Not a Mortal Sin Mr. Himes

Posted by AllardK on April 17, 2018 at 6:29 PM

Welcome to the summit of fame James Comey. Your book is out this Tuesday and the world's media has been diving into its details. But in today's world, the author is often as or more important than what he or she authored. Especially when the author's book is all about the author's viewpoint.

Kennedy was assassinated and no one knows why.

Posted by Weary_Willie on April 12, 2018 at 8:40 PM

There's a question, but that's what we're supposed to settle for, the question. Why did Kennedy get assassinated? They even made a movie that ended just like that.

Good Times!

Posted by Roy Ellis on April 11, 2018 at 8:15 PM

Everyday that goes by I appreciate President Trump more and more. I'm a senior citizen and I have never felt even close to this good about our country and all that entails.

​Syria & Trump's Foreign Policy - Tactics or Strategy?

Posted by AllardK on April 10, 2018 at 4:29 PM

Does President Trump have the blood on his hands of those 40 people reportedly killed by Assad's forces in a gas attack near Damascus? Because that's what James Hohmann basically said in Monday's Daily 202.

​Will Social Media be Shrouded by Congress?

Posted by AllardK on April 5, 2018 at 6:19 PM

Yes, Donald Jr. is likely wrong about social media and their penchant for only censoring non-liberal shooter's online content, often before the police have even named the culprit or filed charges. As The Daily Beast - of all places - has shown, the online profiles or sites or vlogs/blogs etc of people like Nikolas Cruz, Devin Kelley, and Mark Conditt have been censored or removed by social media sites almost immediately after the shootings occurred. And yes, perhaps there's a little more fascination on the part of media towards the YouTube killer vegan, Nasim Aghdam, whose photographs look a like a Marvel Comics reject that didn't quite make the cut.

​The ACLU & the Freedom to Fool Websites With Bots

Posted by AllardK on April 4, 2018 at 5:47 PM

The American Civil Liberties Union is pushing the boundaries of data and research in a lawsuit that they claim is all about biased algorithms. That's right. Algorithms.

Sandvig v Sessions revolves around the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) which is a piece of legislation born in the mid-80's and was originally meant to protect government computers from unauthorized access. Needless to say, the CFAA has been amended multiple times with the most recent case being in 2008. And it has expanded to include most devices - including cell phones.

​So What if Shulkin's Firing was Really About the Choice Program?

Posted by AllardK on March 29, 2018 at 4:33 PM

Game, set, and match. David Shulkin's speedy career collapse as VA Secretary was as swift and brutal as champion Steffi Graf's straight-sets loss to Lorie McNeil back in the summer of 1994. Which would have been at Wimbledon, of course. And complementary tickets to Wimbledon were part of the list of fairly minor but politically unpardonable sins that the now-fired Secretary of Veteran Affairs was guilty of. So, like Tom Price at HHS, he had to go.

​Was This Past Weekend 1969? Or 1989?

Posted by AllardK on March 28, 2018 at 1:49 PM

So was this weekend 1969? Or 1989?

If James Hohmann is right, in his Daily 202 in the Washington Post, then it's 1969. That is, the Cold War historian he quotes, Zachary Jonathan Jacobson, comparing Saturday's marches to a series of anti-war student marches in October, 1969, says this:

Yup! Springtime Is A Comin'

Posted by Roy Ellis on March 21, 2018 at 6:59 PM

So, now the Communist News Network/msm/dims/never Trumper's are clamoring that the President should not have congratulated Putin on his win. Recall that Trump told the world that he didn't like to make his position known on every issue. We don't know, nor will we know what Trump thinks about Putin, nor will Putin, which is a good thing. Hope the Ukrainians learn to shoot those anti-tank missiles so they hit their intended targets

​The Salisbury Poisonings - What is Putin Capable Of?

Posted by AllardK on March 16, 2018 at 1:48 PM

It's past time for the Trump administration to levy the sanctions on Russia that Congress passed. If an excuse to take belated action is needed, the poisoning with a rare and deadly nerve agent created by Soviet intel and military assets 40 years ago of ex Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the English town of Salisbury, and Putin's thuggish and clownish dismissal of Russian involvement, both provide a perfect excuse. Yes, the administration has launched a series of sanctions this Thursday, in what appears to be a response to Salisbury. But more may very well be needed, and it must be clear to Putin that America and it's allies are willing to do more.

​They Came Not to Praise Tillerson But to Bury Him

Posted by AllardK on March 14, 2018 at 10:53 PM

Here's what Buzzfeed's John Hudson wrote on October 4 last year:

One U.S. official expressed confidence in Tillerson's status due to a so-called "suicide pact" forged between Defense Secretary James Mattis, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and Tillerson, whereby all three cabinet secretaries vow to leave in the event that the president makes moves against one of them.

Mercantilist Gridiron! - Trump Trains the Navy and Sanctions on China

We're months away from football training camp, but here goes:

His "reddish" hair slicked back under his Cleveland Browns helmet, "DJ" slaps his hands up under the center's backside and barks out the signals:

Two thirty two! Two Thirty Two! Hut! Hut! Hut!!

​Cohn Goes - Soon McMaster? - How About Ivanka & Jared Too?

Posted by AllardK on March 8, 2018 at 5:52 PM

They couldn't resist. Roll Call, in their story announcing Gary Cohn - Director of the White House's National Economic Council - was stepping down, used a picture of a beaming Cohn at a press conference in January. But it's who's standing next to him, actually slightly behind him looking a curious cross between bemused and amused, that matters. It's H.R. McMaster of course, Trump's National Security Adviser. Who was supposed to resign any time now, but Cohn has beaten him to it.
