Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 5
Who would suspect a person who looks like a thumb? Well, you might. You decide LD has been bitter ever since his best buddy  thing-inside-steve-bannon got kicked out. Or since that MAD cartoon came out with his face as one of Trump's thumbs while Trump was typing out a tweet. Or maybe Middle School, when he found out his mother was Jewish and never forgave her.



LD was Steve Miller, alt-right political spinmeister extraordinaire. And town.

Mafia / Trump Mafia Day 5
You wake up to a NY Times profile piece on rachmarie claiming that she's the real power behind the throne. Of course that's not acceptable to Trump, so he spends the morning stomping around and tweeting angrily. Eventually everyone agrees that it'd be best if she steps down. You don't find rachmarie, but you do find the decaying skin suit rachmarie has been wearing



Rachmarie is the thing living inside Steve Bannon. Her Breitbart network was never real journalism, making her the naive seer.

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 4
Ksen finally puts his fucking foot in it in a fucking interview with fucking NBC, when he fucking tells the fucking journalist to fucking suck his own fucking cock. I guess you should have fucking known he couldn't go one fucking interview without saying the word "fuck" at least twice. Fucking fuck. What a fucking nightmare.



Of fucking course, ksen was Anthony "The Fucking Mooch" Scaramucci. And of course, he was in it only for himself, and would leak on fucking anyone just to get ahead. He was the fucking last-man-standing serial killer.

Night actions please.

Privatization of Russia's state infrastructure is a huge part of it. A lot of the worst possible people made a ton of money extremely quickly and have enough access to the infrastructure of the state (including things like intelligence agencies) to create a ton of havoc in order to get short-term financial gains. The situation in the US is partially a result of this use of intelligence agencies for private profit as well as members of the US ultra-rich trying to get on the oligarchy train and trying to figure out how to privatize as much of he US infrastructure as possible with the help of apparatchiks who have gone their careers feeling like their opinions haven't mattered (e.g. Kelly, Flynn, Mattis).

- they tried (and possibly succeeded) at influencing our election, in multiple ways. 

- they seem to have sketchy connections with our president and his friends. 

- they are friendly with a new nationalist movement that has upended our politics. 

- they have apparently hacked the shit out of US government information systems, often by coming in the front door with Kaspersky Antivirus software

- and now we're hearing that they bought (or at least tried to buy) half our uranium industry

......


what.  the.  fuck.

what is going on here?  how did this happen?

Quote
A North Carolina pastor has "repossessed" the grave marker of a 5-year-old who died of leukemia, because the bereaved family still owed his company money for the monument. Wayne and Crystal Leatherman, who buried their son a year ago, say they're in shock.

. . .

"I hated to do it. I'm not heartless and I have had a child die, so I know how it feels. But what was I to do? I thought having (the marker) would give me some leverage. In hindsight, I should have just written it up as a bad debt ... This could ruin my reputation. Hopefully, we can get this resolved, even if I take a loss on it."

Gee, I don't know Pastor Shoaf . . . what were you to do? Maybe you could have forgiven their debt like Jesus forgave your debt instead of taking a child's headstone off of their grave?

I think it's about time for a Shakespeare reboot called "the Merchant of North Carolina"

John Kelly, Trump's chief of staff whose son died in combat, defends president's call to Gold Star widow

The voice of reason.

Hard position to be put into. On one hand, you want to honor the memory of your son. On the other hand, you want to round up and deport latinos. Sometimes you have to put yourself second.

Mafia / Trump Mafia Day 4
It's almost a surprise that Valor went as long as he did without getting embroiled in scandal, given his penchant for retweeting white supremacists and total lack of self-awareness. But from the Washington Post exposé this morning, it seems he had some pretty in-depth communications directly with the Russians.. So while Valor may say this:



in public, he's lying. He never learned anything from anyone.

Valor was Don Jr.. His illicit communications with the Russians allowed him to interfere with other members of the administration during the night. He was the town blocker.

The senate judiciary committee said today that they would consider a pardon of any target in the Russia investigation to be tantamount to obstruction of justice and would impeach. So.
15
still won't happen

Not sure, because it may not be in the hands of a political body like Congress. I think the FBI itself, including Mueller, could go after him for this.
16
Indicting Sessions is a less purely political act than impeaching the president.

what generation are the majority of talkrational posters? they're the literal worst.

why? I'd prefer to forget him.

on the perjury charge, that looks like a slam dunk

Sessions's testimony has change from claiming under oath that he had no contact with the Russians to that he doesn't remember having contact with the Russians to that he may have talked policy issues with the Russians.

All under oath.

Mafia / Re: Trump Mafia Day 3
Everyone's in agreement. Bilirubin is a distraction. He's a problem. He's an obstruction. He's really only in this to sell handbags.

And his loyalty to the administration has really been in question ever since he met Justin Trudeau that one time.



Bilirubin was Ivanka Trump, and scum.

Day 4 begins tomorrow morning by 9:00 AM MT. Night actions please.

Mafia / Trump Mafia Day 3
Morning of Day 3 of the Trump Administration. All is going swimmingly. Trump went all night without tweeting, and the New York Times, at the top of the newspaper pile, has a nice article about puppies on the front cover. Perfect. So you pull out the Washington Post and...

oh.

Seems like Nostrum has been wasting millions of dollars of taxpayer money hiring charter planes to fly herself and her wife around for vacation. You can't tell which is worse: that Nostrum just got caught wasting taxpayer money, or that Nostrum doesn't even own her own private plane. What a loser!



Nostrum was Tom Price, secretary of health and human services. She was town
