Jeff Sessions testifies tomorrow.

Irving up here in NYC we had the whole crowds of people at bars watching Comey's testimony as well!

I don't watch TV in the morning as it is too distracting unless some thing unbelievably horrific , or incredibly good/amazing has happened. This what radio is for!

But I took a brief look at the Comey hearings. Got a bit of chills, remembering Watergate.

Remember when the Democrats in the House sang songs because the House passed the AHCA?

The Dems just don't know how to build momentum. The GOP continue to show how stupid they are, but when an opening is there, the Dems tend to blow it.

Still have hope for 2018, only cause the GOP are forced to govern and their ideas are shit.

Also, I see the strategy now is to go after Comey (which started last week) and now going after Mueller because he and Comey are friends.

You cannot win against this type of mindset. All you do is discredit someone, try to create confusion or distrust and you win.

The distraction today is that Trump is thinking about firing Mueller. Newt back in May when Bob was hired on to oversee the investigation heaped praise upon him.

Today he's talking about how there's no way Mueller can be trusted. So the memo has obviously been passed around. Discredit the former head of FBI so whatever findings come out are immediately questioned

Trump really did bring the dream team of absolute pukes for human beings into this administration. The top few I can think of I wish would just disappear:

Bannon
Steve Miller
Betsy Devos
Jeff Sessions
Kelly Ann
Rience Prebius
Tom Price

I should stop now as I'll just keep naming people.

When he got all indignant "...scurrilous..."
I was thinking by the end of his sentence it would be " and ah...ah...ah challenge yew to a duel, sir!"

Gotta "love" that memory!

well Russian hackers did have a go at meddling in the French elections big time, but we were one step ahead and swamped them with masses of fake data which kept them busy for a while

The Russian hacking is only partisan to the right and to the far left who hate the center left more than they hate the right.

It's becoming Increasingly clear what really happened.

We knew about this last summer.

Not really your best take, Irvine. I do sincerely believe you're better than this post.

Not sure what to say about the shooting in DC. I feel for the victims and their families.

But I'm sure we will hear soon how the shooter is mentally ill, yet we will continue down a path of cutting mental health services and doing nothing to restrict firearm access.

We do not 'hate' the 'centre-left' (I'm assuming you're referring to liberals?), there's disgruntlement and disagreement at the things that are written and said but they will never come close to the hatred felt for the right. I mean, bloody hell, it's frustrating even having to type this out.

I could same the exact thing about you.

But if we are tot ale the reactions of Schxahill and Greenwald in regards to Reslity Winner, acceptance of Russian meddling has been reluctant (if not petulant).

I was at a brunch a block from there a couple of weeks ago. It's one of the coolest suburban neighborhoods in NoVA.

This is the sound of chickens coming home to roost. I am of course glad no one was killed, and I am hopeful that the experience of terror via gunfire will cause these powerful people to be more empathetic towards gun violence in the future.
