The Swamp keeps getting deeper.

According to his account, Ms. Hicks responded that the emails “will never get out” because only a few people had access to them. Mr. Corallo, who worked as a Justice Department spokesman during the George W. Bush administration, told colleagues he was alarmed not only by what Ms. Hicks had said — either she was being naïve or was suggesting that the emails could be withheld from investigators — but also that she had said it in front of the president without a lawyer on the phone and that the conversation could not be protected by attorney-client privilege.

Yes, EMAILS EMAILS EMAILS! The Trumpistanians are caught out attempting to hide / destroy evidence of colluding with Russian agents.

No wonder there is mass panic in the Trumphouse and attempts to fire anyone left with integrity.

As the US sinks deeper into a mediocre Kleptocracy, the keeper's of Jesus name cheer louder.

Meanwhile, I heard that Trump gave a speech of sorts.

David ... you are pretty obsessive with Trump ... can't be good for your blood pressure. Meanwhile pray tell how many ALP politicians have resigned in the last 36 hours ... and how many more are hanging on by their fingertips refusing to do the right thing.

Bateman's gonna be interesting. Feeney and Shortland are tied at the hip and now Feeney is gone and even more discredited.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

David just cannot bear all that winning - for the other side.

The Veteran said...

Errrrrrr .... Shortland/Shorten ... no real difference anyway. The saga over the ALP MPs refusing to do the right thing and refer themselves to the High Court is akin to the bad soap-opera that Shortland Street was.

Nutthin like egg on face to raise spirits.

Shorton was gloating when thing became fraught after the last election, "we will have no problems".
Didnt realise Karma had a vote in Bateman?

Even almost 50% of Dems realised the reality of a winning effort for POTUS in SoTU.
Pruneface, aka Pelosi, was on the Fox news feed more than she would have wanted making a total prat of herself, and Chucky poor bugger, at one stage found himself clapping and his body language when he remembered that was not within OOD, like Mastercard, priceless.

Vereran is this Blogs obsession with the USA in general and it will be very dull place when the Mango goes.

Just going back a few posts and Dodgers obsession with all things Thatcher and how she saved the UK from a Venezuela situation, his words and yours I beleive, by privatising public works. Carrilion, an outsourcing firm has gone belly up and suddenly 315 schools, prisons etc had no food, 20,000 people woke up to find they had no jobs. But hooray over the hill came the ever reliable taxpayer cavalry to the rescue, it is only 8,000 people now without jobs. Please don't shed a tear for the directors, they are on $1,400,000 a year and complaining that their bonuses are in jeopardy.

The govt. sold off the Police Forensic labs to the private sector ' COS IT"S CHEAPER one has been canned for "data manipulation" ie short cuts in order raise the bottom line and the taxpayer has to foot the bill for a revue of hundreds of trials. The other one just went bust putting hundreds of trials in jeopardy but not to worry I hear the sound of the taxpayers bugles...phew.

Capita, the last big outsourcing company just lost 40% of it's share price and the Taxpayer is paying for it's lack of maintenance in the prisons and the non existent training for guards which has caused millions of pounds worth of damage and inhuman treatment of prisoners which in turn damages society.

So Dodger, don't mention Thatcher to me she is an unfortunate blip in history and apart from her Churchillian position on the Falklands deserves every bit of credit for the shocking mess the the countries infrastructure is in.

Crikey Mr But your passionate attitude formed in a forge of intense dislike throws up some talented history revision.

You could well adopt a new Pseudonym of "Fulla".

Yes I admire Thatcher for having the cojones to put Callaghan and Healey, who had already admitted that Labours disastrous policy mix could not be sustained economically, down like a pair of much loved but too old poodles. That in large part was coloured by my enduring constant threats to my chosen livelyhood from repeated undustrial actions by Trade unions who could strike with impunity when a most inconvenient opportunity came along, Lambs ready for slaughter at optimum time for price, carcas quality and weather, other exports likewise and even the freakin ferries at school holiday.
As I said UK was on its knees and Thatcher happened.

She then saw off a list of socialists including Scargil, Foote, Benn and even Kinnock.

Every poli to ever to reach power makes errors and on balance some were so bad.
I agree her standing up to the socialists of Argentina who had almost run out of OPM despite that her actions went in the face of a wrongheaded US policy, and won, was laudable.
If I am to give my number one thing to be grateful to Baroness Thatcher for it would have to be her part along with Reagan in bringing the odious and murderous Berlin Wall down to a benign pile of rubble and thereby end the oppressive and lethal reign of Honecker and Co.
Contrast that to another "aint they Grand" socialist who took the UK into Iraq to smash the never found WMDs, what a clusterf&*k that has turned out. eh
The irony inherent in that her part of "tear down that wall Mr Gorbachov" led to increase the power of the EU another threat to the Great in Great Britain she saw looming.

Of course Mr But in your strange little socialist world, means will always justify ends so long as it's your team running the show.
Yes I loathe Socialists but that doesn't preclude my ability to be rational in assessing, even working with them whereas-----?

Even on the Friday Fulmination thread you seem unable to refrain from yet another boring personal attack on another persons beliefs. You poor sad bastard, no need to attempt to make a guess on your attitude to free speach.

Anonymous said... speech not hate speech which puts me a couple of rungs higher up the ladder than your adoring sock puppet Adolt. Thatcher did not 'see off' people, the govt of the day did because she was acting with consensus. The subject is complex and cannot be argued in posts like this. Suffice it to say in 1972 I left the UK by ship because of the three day week and the OPEC quadrupling the price of oil (remember Sheik Yamami) I bought my ticket, paying cash, by candlelight, the last beer I had in Southhampton was in a pub lit by gaslight, much better ambience than electric I thought. So don't lecture me on Scargill etc.

Bottom line is I don't blame anyone because it always a combination of circumstances, some preventable some not, that are the cause, human nature, always flawed, greed and personal interest combine to shape events. However what is plain as a pike staff is that the rush to privatise and using property as a way to wealth in the English speaking world has been an abject failure with the taxpayer picking up the pieces when it goes wrong.
