Fake stories, real leaks…

leave a comment »

Read this  slowly and carefully.   Assuming the Conservative Treehouse is correct,  and I have no reason to think otherwise,  we now possibly know who at least one of the leakers is.   I was paying attention a while back when when Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates said they were forming a counterintelligence unit to identify the leakers.

House Intelligence Committee Minority Chairman Adam Schiff apparently wasn’t listening,  since he may have been the one caught leaking through his apparatchik colleagues at CNN.  It’s pretty much a classic intel move.  You would think that,  as a member of the Gang of Eight,  Rep. Schiff would have been aware of it and would have recognized it.    The Go8 has oversight of every U.S. covert intelligence operation around the world,  and oversee the NSA,  CIA,  FBI,  DNI,  and every single intelligence unit and operation.

The worms are beginning to turn,  but  not many are  noticing yet,  even amongst the supposedly  smart media…..

Merry Hillary resistmas…

leave a comment »

British company Women To Look Up To is selling a Hillary Clinton Christmas tree  angel topper:  $108 for a standard size topper, but $943 for one destined for a tree over 10 feet.   Some are enthralled with what they see as a  must-have decoration  this year.

While I would prefer it over the sex toys the Clinton White House reportedly used for tree decorations,  I would be more likely to pay someone NOT to give it to me than actually purchase this topper or any of the others the company  thinks I should admire.

Alcohol and axes…

This seems  like a truly awful idea under any circumstances.  If this is the initial premise,  I can’t imagine what safety precautions would be sufficient.

McCain Twitter crash…

leave a comment »

If you beg your Twitter followers for 74 more recruits and you lose thousands,  you are not  in tune  with the universe,  and even having a bot sign up fakes for  your account  won’t save you.

I am second to none in my distaste for Sen. John McCain,  who runs for office as a conservative, then spends all his time attacking conservatives and sucking up to progressives.   I don’t wish brain cancer on anyone,  but I’ll not be sorry that his time in Congress is coming to an end.

No, it’s not…

A super  PAC  ad supporting Democratic candidate Doug Jones in his  senatorial race against embattled Roy Moore  suggests the votes   cast in a December 12th special election are “public record.”   They are not,  of course,  and I truly hope someone in Alabama charges the group,  which is structured in a way to hide its donors,  with voter intimidation.  Given that progressives shriek that the mere presence of a stray conservative thought constitutes violence,  this should be easy to prove…

By the way,  Alabama voters seem mostly annoyed by the attacks against Moore,  who is  now leading  Jones by 7 points.

If you  missed this event,  or were in an area socked in by weather which made viewing it impossible,  you can benefit from those with good cameras and excellent viewing sites,  here.

Hanoi gets first McDonald’s…

There are branches of the eatery in other cities in Vietnam, but this is Hanoi’s first.   There are many people happy to see it arrive,  and others less so.
