That turned out to be quite topical today too......... :ooer:

Never mind the big hitters, Manafort & Gates, for now. Little George Papadopoulos seems to have been flipped 'over easy' and what he's agreed to spill could turn out to be the first real sledgehammer to the dotard's Witch Hunt spin.

Mueller Monday is getting to be a wild ride! :yikes:

U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, tasked with pursuing collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia, just planted the first stake.

Prosecutors on Mueller’s team revealed Monday that a foreign policy adviser on Trump’s campaign, George Papadopoulos, pursued Russia’s help in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign and sought to open communication lines to the Kremlin. Papadopoulos worked with an international professor who promised compromising information from Russia about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. He also met with a Russian woman he believed could broker a meeting between the campaign and Russian officials.

He then lied about the timing and content of those interactions to agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. On October 5, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying in a sealed document that was made public Monday in Washington D.C. Ominously for the White House, Papadopoulos is cooperating with the investigation.

“Above All” – America’s Military Junta Expands Its Claim to Power

The press briefing could serve as a preview of what a military coup in this country would look like, for it was in the logic of such a coup that Kelly advanced his four arguments.

The President did the right thing because he did exactly what his general told him to do. …
Communication between the President and a military widow is no one’s business but theirs. …
Citizens are ranked based on their proximity to dying for their country. …
Gessen is late. The coup happened months ago. A military junta is in strong control of White House polices. It is now widening its claim to power.

General Kelly’s Tirade and the Threat of Military Dictatorship in America
The episode encapsulated not merely the sociopathic personality of the US president, but the attitude of America’s ruling oligarchy toward the members of the all-volunteer army that it employs to pursue its profit interests by means of military aggression all over the world.

Kelly, however, spoke, with a distinct tone of bitterness and resentment, as the representative of a military caste that has become increasingly alienated from and hostile to civilian society and civilian authority.

“They are the best 1 percent this country produces,” he said, referring to Washington’s all-volunteer military. “Most of you, as Americans, don’t know them. Many of you don’t know anyone who knows any one of them. But they are the very best this country produces, and they volunteer to protect our country when there’s nothing in our country anymore that seems to suggest that selfless service to the nation is not only appropriate, but required. But that’s all right.”

He went on to compound his defense of the military against supposed civilian contempt and indifference with the expression of extreme right-wing views.

“You know, when I was a kid growing up, a lot of things were sacred in our country,” he said. “Women were sacred, looked upon with great honor. That’s obviously not the case anymore as we see from recent cases. Life—the dignity of life—is sacred. That’s gone. Religion, that seems to be gone as well.”

While the invocation of women and religion as “sacred” hardly calls to mind the image of Donald Trump, it does resonate, along with “the dignity of life,” i.e., the banning of abortion, with the key political constituency of the Christian right.

The appointment of Kelly, like that of Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis (ret.) as secretary of defense and active-duty Gen. H.R. McMaster as national security advisor, was supported by the Democratic Party and the media as a welcome turn by the Trump administration. The New York Times referred to the retired and active-duty generals that dominate the Trump cabinet as “the adults in the room,” while the Washington Post referred to them as “voices for moderation” and “moral authorities.”

Kelly’s extraordinary intervention at Thursday’s White House press conference constitutes a sharp warning. Anyone who thinks that “it can’t happen here,” that a US government that has sponsored countless coups and regime-change operations around the globe cannot itself become the target of a military takeover, is making a serious political mistake.

Why does your post remind me of the famous man in the white suit? MARTIN BELLL !!

Bell was one of the most honest politicians in Britain, he was a war correspondent who decided to run as an independent.

Disgusted with the brown envelopes and cash-for-questions saga, he came in to clean up local politics in cheshire.

Took on one of the safest tory seats and thrashed the incumbent, Hamilton to smitherins. The rest is history.

IKR??!
Add to that the "all hat and no cattle" put-down from that Sanders hag - all pearls and no bloody poise, more like

I'm not too enamoured of Congresswoman Wilson, if I'm honest, because I think she bolloxed her handling of the whole situation. But for Kelly to do such a hatchet job on her - ffs...!

Given the totally amoral sociopath he works for, I'm frankly stunned by all the things Kelly said he's "STUNNED!" by in his speech. What a hypocritical sellout he turned out to be :roll:
