Re: NRA Implodes- Lawsuits and Finances, Oh My!

It's a full-on purge now. LaPierre just forced out the NRA's chief lobbyist and his second-in-command, Chris Cox, by accusing him of supporting Olliver North's coup attempt. Per CNN: The National Rifle Association's No. 2 official Christopher Cox resigned on Wednesday shortly after he was placed on ...

Re: House Oversight: Kellyanne Conway Re Hatch Act Violations

She serves at the pleasure of the President. That's the actual operative phrase. If she refuses to testify because he directed her not to, he's not going to fire her. What would get her fired would be defying her boss.

The Hatch Act isn't a criminal statute. The penalty is supposed to be losing your job as a government worker. But ...

Re: "Iran, If You're Listening . . ."

This is the most horrifying consequence of Mueller's conclusion that, since he couldn't put a value on information, he couldn't prosecute a campaign finance violation. It's stunningly naive as to the message that sends campaign strategists - who are nothing if not good copycats - going forward. I've...

Re: Pentagon sending 1,000 more troops as tensions with Iran grow

My guess is that Bolton is smart enough to know Trump won't actually give the go-ahead to start bombing on his own. So he's doing everything he can to put as many US troops and assets as close to Iran as possible to increase the likelihood that something happens that will allow him to walk into the ...
