Where There's Smoke, There's Mirrors

Every day a new freak attraction in the funhouse. Today it's T accusing O of wiretapping him.

Hmm. There is some legality whereby listening in on citizens can be done if national security is at risk. T's connections w. Russia were known before the election. It's theoretically possible that O had T wiretapped as part of an investigation...

Or T could be hallucinating, or just lashing out, or distractifying on a grand scale. Hard to tell in the funhouse mirrors...and do I smell smoke? I smell something.

In the meantime, coal miners can keep their obsolete jobs a little longer, presumably, thru easing of regulations against dumping in streams.

Another tweet, from “Angry W.H. Staffer” says: None of the wifi networks at Mar a Lago are secured. We do government business on the public wifi. Can't stress enough how screwed this is. This seems a mite more serious than C doing State Dept biz on her basement server. Also: Pence. He's arguing that his using a private server Not At All The Same Thing, even tho there was security stuff on there sensitive enough that it can be made public. AND ... he got hacked. Images in mirror may be larger or smaller than they appear. And distorted.

NYT reporting that T “to Undo Vehicle Rules That Curb Global Warming”. Slashing State Dept., which already has no ambassadors (wasn't Benghazi about not doing enough to provide embassies and their outposts?) T's son-in-law is running foreign relations solo (insert masturbation joke here).

And that display at the SotU speech – a horror-funhouse reflection of sympathy for the war widow, whose dead soldier husband is smiling from heaven because of the applause-o-meter...

And, as someone said, is there ANYone in the T entourage who HASn't met w. the Russian ambassador?

And all the Russian money trail. Maddow about the Russian Fertilizer King whose plane always seems to be on the tarmac w. T's.

The list of assaults on the body politic (it's gone way beyond pussy-grabbing) is hard to keep up with. Oh, and not to forget the woman w. brain tumor taken from hospital and tossed across the border. Man dropping off kids at school ditto. Many others... And all the damage to people by the not-Muslim-ban. People losing fingers to frostbite looking for refuge up here.

Can't keep up, can't keep straight. See something over there, turn around and there's something else here... Idiots and ideologues and greed-heads running things (into the ground)...

It's not only hard to keep up with, it's impossible to keep up with, and that may be the objective. Trump learned a lot about holding an audience's attention during his reality tv programing days. 

I was the one who asked if there was anyone in his administration who hadn't met with a Russian. Kosher offered Pence, but even Pence has a certain look in his eye.

I for one am coughing from the smoke. No 'news' for me today. I'm taking a break.

It all does proceed apace, does it not?

I did wire-tap Trump Tower. 

I also killed Jesus. My family.

We found a note in the basement. 


(Thank you, LB)

Yes, I definitely think part of 45's plan is smoke and mirrors, distraction and obfuscation.
The wiretapping allegation seems seriously disturbed on top of calculated.
Except he doesn't really seem smart enough to think of all this on his own. Bannon using 45 as HIS minion? Maybe so.

Increasing immigrant detention beds by 400%. Or was it 4000? What chills me the most.

And while we're all russia watching, Congress is yanking us back to the 50's at max speed. Or the 1890s.

Sheila Luecht posted this on facebook:

"I must not become numb ..."
In case anyone got overly sidetracked by the Russian spy drama, the following bills HAVE been introduced:
1. HR 861 Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency
2. HR 610 Vouchers for Public Education
3. HR 899 Terminate the Department of Education
4. HJR 69 Repeal Rule Protecting Wildlife
5. HR 370 Repeal Affordable Care Act
6. HR 354 Defund Planned Parenthood
7. HR 785 National Right to Work (this one ends unions)
8. HR 83 Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Bill
9. HR 147 Criminalizing Abortion (“Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act”)
10. HR 808 Sanctions against Iran
Please copy/paste and share widely. Call your House Representative and ask them to not only vote "NO"...but to speak up for our rights, health & safety, and our beautiful country.

Myriad, do you remember who she was on Open? Or does anyone else?
