    The mainstream media seemed to suffer a collective shock Friday evening after the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed its final report of its Russia investigation to the Department of Justice. MSNBC host Chris Matthews seemed livid that neither President Trump, his children, nor his “henchmen” would face any criminal charges from the special counsel. “Maybe he missed the boat here,” Matthews said of Mueller. “Because we know about the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016, we know about the meeting at the cigar bar with Kilimnik [Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian political consultant]. My God, we know about all...

House committee leaders will update members on their plans in a 3:00 pm conference call today, featuring a report from Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Politico reported.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The Witch Hunt is dead! Long live the Witch Hunt! – In case you are wondering why every Democrat from Hawaii to Maine is screaming for Attorney General William Barr to “release the full, unredacted Mueller Report!”, it’s because they know that will never happen. They know that Mueller’s report – assuming it is a fullsome narrative and not just the listing of indictments, prosecutions and deferrals required by the governing statute – will certainly be chock-full of classified information and other passages that the FBI and intelligence agencies will want to...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The “Mueller Report” – whatever that even means – was delivered to Attorney General William Barr today. As has been his habit, Mueller took this latest major step in his Witch Hunt late on a Friday to ensure it will dominate the conversation on all the Sunday morning TV talk shows. That’s really all you need to know about whether or not this entire process is a politically-motivated sham. It is. So, what next? Nobody really knows. It’s like that right now, AG Barr doesn’t even know what he will be...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 03/21/2019 | Heather Long
    President Trump has promised an economic boom that will last for years to come, but he’s unlikely to get one without the help of Congress to pass major new legislation, according to estimates by Trump’s own economic team. To achieve about 3% growth for the next decade, Trump would need a big infrastructure bill, more tax cuts, additional deregulation, and policies that transition more people off government aid and into full-time jobs, according to the 2019 Economic Report of the President, released Tuesday by Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers. There’s skepticism that Trump will be able to get all of...

    The parent company of Fox News has hired a former top aide to Joe Biden as its chief lobbyist in Washington. On Tuesday the new Fox Corp., a spin-off of 21st Century Fox which just merged with Disney, became a standalone public company, controlling television assets such as Fox News and the Fox television network. Broadcasting & Cable reported that new Fox “hit the ground running on day one” with its Washington lobbying operation headed by Danny O’Brien, a well-known Democrat. O’Brien was brought on last October as executive vice president and head of government relations for the Fox Corp....

    Readers of this blog are already familiar with Glide Memorial, a radical progressive congregation in San Francisco that recently severed ties with the United Methodist Church (UMC). Legal fights between Glide and the UMC’s California-Nevada Annual Conference continue, but occasionally there is something or someone that we suspect regular readers will find noteworthy, such as an Islamic Drag Queen. Enter “Drag & Spirituality: Claiming Our Sanctuary” – “This talk show-style conversation will explore the intersections of drag, gender, sexuality and spirituality. Our host & event curator, B0NNi33 Vi0L3T, aka Duane Quintana, a queer chaplain, will interview ground-breaking local drag queens,...

    LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. — Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) spoke with President Trump about the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday, after days of unprecedented attacks by a sitting president on a dead war hero. McSally, addressing reporters after a meeting with base commanders here Thursday, expanded on a tweet she sent Wednesday in which she called McCain a hero. The tweet did not mention Trump, and in her remarks Thursday she again refrained from criticizing the president. "I made it clear, I love John McCain. John McCain is an American hero. This state reveres John McCain, and...

Lavin’s undergraduate course “Reporting on the Far Right” will kick off in the fall semester of 2019 at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. In its official faculty bio, the university billed Lavin as an expert in “far-right extremism and social justice.” At least one current NYU...

    One can spend several days trying not to overreact to President Trump’s latest, unprovoked tweetstorm against the late Sen. John McCain R-Ariz., yet still conclude that there is something sick and twisted about Trump’s obsession with the singular American hero Trump disparages. Tom Rogan already in these pages has eloquently explained why, fake heel spurs or no fake heel spurs, Trump could never be fit to wear McCain’s discarded shoes. And lawyer George Conway, husband of top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway, has presented a persuasive case that Trump’s fulminations about McCain and other bizarre eruptions are signs of a personality...

    Just a little light gossip from Gabriel Sherman, although the timing makes sense to me. It’d be to Hannity’s advantage to start circulating rumors of his unhappiness too, even if they’re insincere, as it might give him more leverage over the direction of the network.

    The U.S. Department of Defense is proposing to pay for President Donald Trump’s much-debated border wall by shifting funds away from projects that include $1.2 billion for schools, childcare centers and other facilities for military children, according to a list it has provided to lawmakers. The Pentagon gave Congress a list on Monday that included $12.8 billion of construction projects for which it said funds could be redirected. Around 10 percent of the list relates to educational establishments and includes school buildings for the children of service members in places like Germany, Japan, Kentucky and Puerto Rico. The move comes...

    Former President Ronald Reagan would be “horrified” and “heartbroken” by America’s current state of affairs under President Donald Trump, the late president’s daughter said in a recent interview. In an interview with Yahoo News that was published Tuesday, Patti Davis sharply criticized the Republican Party and Trump’s presidency, saying the President is endangering American democracy and “assaulting” the Constitution. “What would you think (Reagan) would think about this moment?” Zainab Salbi, the host of Yahoo News’ “Through Her Eyes,” asked Davis. “I think he would be horrified,” Davis replied. “I think he would be heartbroken because he loved this country...

    Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, posted a hateful message she received from a stranger the same day President Donald Trump disparaged her late husband. McCain posted a photo of the private message on Twitter and wrote, "I want to make sure all of you could see how kind and loving a stranger can be. I'm posting her note for her family and friends could see." The message said the sender was "glad" the late Arizona Republican is dead, and called him a "traitorous piece of warmongering s***." The message also attacked her daughter, Meghan McCain, criticizing her...

And a worried nation breathes a sigh of relief. The biggest problem with this denial seems to be that it robs him of any excuse whatsoever for dressing like a goat, complete with mask, while playing in his punk band. Plus, it could have helped to explain some of those hand and arm gyrations. Oh, well. The Irishman from El Paso also swore that there is “nothing” in his past that...
