Update: Police Now Say Incendiary Device Found at Goodwill Not Likely Related to Serial Bombings
Although they're investigating whether this was a deliberate incident, the cop giving the presser seems to think it's possible, or even likely, that this is a case of a family going through a dead family member's old war mementos and bone-headedly dropping it off at Goodwill, not realizing it was some kind of ordnance. The cop says it wasn't even an "explosive device," just an "old, military-style ordnance." Well that's kind of contradictory but I think he's saying he doesn't think this was intended to be a bomb that blew up in someone's hands.
Questions Still Surround Robert Mueller’s Boston Past "Mueller's actions while in Boston as a criminal prosecutor raised questions about his role in one of the FBI's most controversial cases involving the use of a confidential informant" [CBD]
CNN's Fat Joker Brian Stelter Insists That There's No Bias at CNN on Guns or Conservatism, Says Anyone Critiquing Media Bias Is Trying to "Get Rid of" Journalism
"Your website, The Daily Wire, a lot of other conservative media sites that have criticism of the press; I sometimes worry you’re all trying to tear things down as opposed to make them better. It's one thing to critique and want journalism to be better, but sometimes I feel that you’re just trying to get rid of journalism altogether."
How Paragon of Law Enforcement Robert Mueller Repeatedly Botched the Anthrax Investigation, Then Used Shoddy Evidence to Pin It on a Dead Guy
Dead men make the best fall guys
PS: "Fall guy" has no known etymology and may refer to either a patsy (innocent scapegoat) or a guilty party who becomes the scapegoat (maybe like a lower-level guy, kind of disliked by the other criminals, who's given up to the police when they come calling. Interesting disputes over where this phrase came from and indeed what it even is supposed to mean.

AN APOLOGY This morning, I posted a link to an Andy McCarthy piece in National Review about Jeff Sessions. Unfortunately, while the piece is accurate, it's old; June of 2017. In my rush to post the thread, I neglected to see this rather important detail. All things considered, the fact that it's old news doesn't take away from my opinion about the attorney general. But this is no excuse. I strive to do my best work and today I fell short. I shall do my utmost to do better tomorrow. Thanks for your support as always. [J.J. Sefton]

Sean Davis: Not to Brag, But The Rest of the Media Just Caught Up With Two Major Fusion GPS Scoops I Had Months Ago... Oh, and Here's My Prediction About the Next One Coming
I'm amused by the Smug Set's belief that they're doing a grand old job of informing the conservative audience and advancing the conservative cause, when it's outlets like The Federalist -- which the Smug Set loathes for being right too often, and embarrassing them -- which is getting the job done
Can't wait to see the Smug Set jeer at the next bit of news The Federalist gets first, and their mockery of it. And then in two months, when the rest of the media gets the story, they'll change their tack and say "That was the Washington Consensus all along."
Also, Obama's Mentor Lawrence Tribe Has Endorsed the NeverTrumpers' Conspiracy Theories
Ten days ago Lawrence Tribe tweeted that Tillerson was deliberately weakening America on Russia's orders. Now Trump fires Tillerson, and the story is now that Tillerson was too tough on Russia, so Trump canned him.
Is this not the very definition of conspiracy theorizing? Where the True Believers can completely reverse their premises but keep their conclusions perfectly intact?
Nancy Pelosi Supports NeverTrumpers' Conspiracy Theories on Rex Tillerson
BTW, are these people aware that Trump and Tillerson have been feuding forever? That we've been speculating about #Rexit forever? That Tillerson called Trump a "moron"? I know the NeverTrumpers know that because they giggled like little girls about it for a week.
