Morning Reads with a Warning

If you haven’t completed your shopping by now just abandon all hope.

Rafael Solano y su Orquestra “Aleluya” (this might replace the Boston Pops’ version of “Sleigh Ride” as best Christmas song ever–even though “Sleigh Ride is not a Christmas song).

  1. The world was first, waiting for this hire and second, my reaction. (I’m not sure if I like it.) 
  2. USC’s strength and conditioning coach will be GSU’s new o-line coach. 
  3. Legislature considering one agency to run mass transit. 
  4. How Georgia farmers are using big data for big savings
  5. WABE has a chinwag with outgoing ATL Fed Prez (aka Best Fed Prez) Dennis Lockhart. 
  6. What should the Atlanta mayoral hopefuls be discussing?

Trump meets with Jim Brown, Ray Lewis, and Kanye West; two criminals and a mental health patient.

Stock market rally continues. Doubt if even fed rate increase will stop this one.

Candidates for mayor should be talking about crime and wasteful spending such as 100 million dollars+ on Philips Arena.

25 films have been selected for the National Film Registry including two of my favorites ‘Point Blank’ and ‘Ball of Fire’. Walker and Sugarpuss would each have done well in politics.

Trump summons Silicone Valley to kiss the ring. What job promises will be announced at press conference?

Might want to run spellcheck there, boss. Unless you’re intending to make vulgar double entendres this morning.

A very interesting read, at least for geeks of both the IT and political persuasions. Warning; unlike fake news stories it isn’t a short blurb.

Again, another attempt to de-legitimize Trump.
No effort has ever been made to say the content of Podesta’s email were made up. They weren’t. The info in those emails showed DNC and media in bed together against Trump. Everyone thought it. Now they knew it. The Dem tactics and facts were exposed to the light of day and the folks then voted against Hilly. And the hack also showed the DNC was against Sanders. Basically, the truth hurt them…Again, underhanded Dem tactics. This “fake” outrage is childish and unproductive.

I want to push back on this idea of “the Media” being against Trump. Beginning with the primary, every major network broadcast his rallies nearly in their entirety. This continued through the general election. They even covered events that were, in essence, infomercials for his hotel and his golf course. Fox News gave him glowing treatment and fed him debate questions in the primary. (sound familiar?) The clowns at Morning Joe have him on speed dial and gave him free reign to call in and rant about whatever was on his mind with minimal push back. “The Media” did a… Read more »

Did you even read the article? I realize all along the party line has been that all of these stories are “underhanded Dem tactics” as you say or what Brietbart has labeled “left-wing fake news”. Reince Priebus was quoted by ABC News the day before this article with “The entire report is based on unnamed sources who are perhaps doing something they shouldn’t be doing by speaking to reporters or speaking out of line…” Yet this article has this quote from a so-so named source: “There shouldn’t be any doubt in anybody’s mind,” Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of… Read more »

Any comments on the way the Dems screwed Bernie? That was also in the emails.

You are being deliberately obtuse. I ain’t going down that rabbit hole.

A similarly interesting read about US influence in a certain foreign election…seems to be an issue facing all countries. Only difference is the US under Obama tried to defeat a leader of a major ally where Russia (if they actually are the culprits) was messing around in a former cold war enemy’s election.

Did you actually read the substance of the article? There’s a vast difference between a civil society grant that unintentionally goes to electioneering because someone failed to put conditions on it, and a deliberate act of espionage against a foreign power. If Obama was trying to defeat Netanyahu, a six-figure grant to an obscure activist group isn’t how you do it.

The column was comprehensive and you weren’t kidding about the length.

“Trump can look at sanctions. They’ve been in place long enough,” Kingston told NPR in Moscow. “Has the desired result been reached? He doesn’t have to abide by the Obama foreign policy. That gives him a fresh start.” Yeah, it has been two whole years since that little farce in Crimea. Less than that on the MH17 shoot down, Russian special forces acting as Ukrainian rebels… And those pesky sanctions were not just “Obama foreign policy” but also agreed upon by the UN. Also the G8 had six other members voting on their ouster. We now have “Conservatives” and former… Read more »

Remove all sharp objects from Libs homes. Russia didn’t hack s–t! Disgruntled American did. Blows that Narrative to Kingdom Come! Lol!

Yep. Thank you for the laugh. An “as told to” article in a British tabloid. Sure blows that FBI, CIA, NSA… “Narrative to Kingdom Come!”

Disconnection from reality- as well as bullying, racism, and general a-holishness- is now legitimized, protected, and aspirational.
