    There's a peculiar Red tint in the upcoming Nov 2018 Blue Wave.
    "New Poll Shows GOP Now Leads In 2018 Generic Ballot"
    Long-time Moron commenter "Yeff" has passed away. RIP
    Thought: Although conservatism argues for a lot of specific policy goals, there has always been a large part of what we call Republicanism that has never been anything more than a reflexive, steadfast defense of vested caste/class interests. We are entering the second year of discovering which "conservatives" have always been motivated primarily by what might be called Ruling Class Republicanism.
    Republican-for-CNN-Purposes Amanda Carpenter, A Basic Becky Version of Ana Navarro, Continues to Dazzle
    The part of Conservatism, Inc., responsible for promoting and over-promoting "Hot New Conservative Talent" needs to be fired and replaced with monkeys, who would do a better job. If you look at the list of Hot New Conservative Talent who were relentlessly promoted over other more deserving people, and how they've turned out, you quickly see that Conservatism, Inc. has basically spent 15 years training and promoting liberal commentators. I... think CNN can train and promote its own liberal commentators.
    The Media Just Can't Quit Its Spin That DOJ Leaks to The Washington Post and New York Times are All Nunes' and Trump's Fault, Somehow
    This guy is less covert than I am, for crying out loud. And they're deliberately ignoring the real leakers to fixate on people who did not leak, but who are their political enemies and therefore more convenient targets. Welcome to Valerie Plame 2: The Outing of Someone Who Was Never In
    Did I mention this guy worked for the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar -- openly? Do covert agents work for open Intelligence groups? He's a known associate of MI-6 big Richard Dearlove, for crying out loud!
    Katie Pavlich: Rosenstein's referral of the spying matter to the IG is inadequate, because the IG cannot interview former government employees, and most of the malefactors here have already departed government.
    A more suspicous man than myself might suspect that Rod Rosenstein punted it to the IG for precisely this reason.
    Lee Smith Continues Dropping Bombs on the Russia Collusion Hoax
    Gee, it's too bad the Weekly Standard fired him almost immediately after he submitted an article about Fusion GPS' role in this fraud. I guess it was just bad timing, and his firing wasn't connected to his investigations into Fusion GPS and the Deep State at all.
    Weird: Everyone talked about Red State firing anti-Trump writers, but no one has ever breathed a word about the Weekly Standard purging Larry O'Connor and then Lee Smith. Again, it's probably just a coincidence that those writers weren't on the same page as the cucks running that clownshow.
    Chatter: There Will be Some News Made on Tucker Carlson's Show Tonight
    More news than we have right now? I'm not sure I believe it!
    The Washington Post: If the DOJ Spied on Trump, It Was to Protect Trump, Not Harm Him
    Well, when Trump orders the prosecution of Deep State Conspirators, it will also be to protect them, not to harm them
    One of the Weekly Standard's Cuckiest Cucks Joins the Leftwing In Claiming That No One Was Talking About The Spy Until Lou Dobbs Mentioned the Controversy on May 12
    Funny, I seem to remember a very hinty-hinty-hinty report from Chuck Ross on March 25th, which I then hinted about every couple of weeks... By the way, I didn't get a "tip" about it or anything. I just read the facts presented and drew the hard-to-avoid conclusions... You know, it would be just great if alleged "conservative" reporters would read conservative media on occasion, instead of just the Chinese Telephone Game descriptions of it they get from their leftwing reporter Cocktail Party palz
    Clarification: Note that I said one of The Weekly Standard's Cuckiest Cucks. Ahoy, mon Capitan!

    Larry O'Connor: Might Be Time to Admit Trump Was Right About Spying, Huh?
    The tall, broad-shouldered Jake Tapper with piercing blue eyes, who is a good man who believes in goodness, still hasn't corrected his claim that Americans were crazy for thinking that Obama's government would spy on anyone (despite Obama's government having spied on lots of people, including journalists, who Jake Tapper tells me are Sacred Priests)
    The Deep State has instructed their Media Lackeys to Not Call the Spy a "Spy," But Instead Call Him Only An "Informant." Next Week They'll Demand He Only be Referred to as a "Matter."
    See Sean Davis' Tweet, too
    Axios Claim: Top Trump Trade Adviser Peter Navarro Recommended Stefan Halper for Trump Campaign Job
    Was a he a dupe being used, or did he know what was going on? And -- can we even trust Axios?
    Bear in mind, too, that anyone involved in this is going to naturally want to leak other names out to the press, to take focus off themselves
    James Clapper Says It's a Good Thing the DOJ and IC Were Also Spying on Trump
    Corrected: Clapper didn't spy on Congress. That was his P-I-C Brennan. Clapper just spied on millions of Americans through the metadata capture program and then lied to Congress about it. Thanks to David Harsanyi for clearing that up for me.
    Did Pope Innocent II Really Forbid the Use of the Crossbow?
    TL;DR version: Yes, but he also forbade the use of any bow against Christians, as well as the sling. He also forbade jousting and tournament fighting (which were more lethal and play-for-keeps in the twelfth century than the later high medieval versions). The idea seemed to be to limit the deaths Christians inflicted on each other so as not to deplete Europe's armies while those armies were needed for the Crusades. But everyone ignored him, of course.
