First things first, Happy Birthday to my mom, Beth Garcia. She is one of the reasons I love politics as much as I do! Hope your 25th Birthday is AMAZING.

Now onto less important things:

Yes, Theresa May cannot catch a break while:

President Donald Trump signaled he was ready for a transatlantic brawl Tuesday as he embarked on a consequential week of international diplomacy, taking aim at vulnerable British Prime Minister Theresa May and suggesting that meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin might be easier than talking with Western allies at the NATO summit here.

It looks like most of the UK is going to be trolling Trump while he is there. The Trump baby blimp made me laugh.

So it looks like we’re kidnapping American kids now:

“1 child cannot be reunified at this time because the parent’s location has been unknown for more than a year. Defendants are unable to conclusively determine whether the parent is a class member, and records show the parent and child might be U.S. citizens.”

So I take it this is the one kind of Democrat you’re willing to support?

Hey Noway, are you going to mail some water wings to your swamp dwelling buddies so they don’t drown under the liberal deluge of swamp water we will see from Strzok tomorrow! Let’s see if these clowns are still in denial (De Nile -that big river flowing north through Egypt) about this horrible partisan witch hunt! Can you swim Caroline?!

De Nile -that big river flowing north through Egypt

Trying to figure out if you explaining the joke is an admission you suck at making jokes or an admission Noway is too dumb to get it.

Friendly reminder that you were talking a big game about how Wray and Rosenstein would be the final nail in the coffin for the Mueller investigation. Granted, that was before Jim “I spent years turning a blind eye to rampant sexual assault but I’m sure paying attention to this” Jordan proved just how little he knows about how investigations work.

Seriously, if there was gold in Strzok’s story, ish would’ve been leaked by a handful of over eager Republican legislators or staffers.

Exactly. So far they’ve only done a cut and paste. They made Daryl Issa proud. Strzok has even asked for his testimony to be released and it’s crickets from the GOP.

The Lt Gov and his wife are in Savannah to open his Coastal Georgia Campaign Headquarters today. Note, in same building as Rep Carter’s office.

Rafa’s success is still too one surface dominant for me (12/18 GS wins have been at Roland Garros) while Fed has 6 Aussies and 5 US Opens in addition to his 8 wins on grass.

Oh sweet Jesus. Can we get the dang edit button back, please?

Y’all cutting costs around here or something?

Federer out. If Rafa wins, GOAT debate wide open…

No doubt. In fact, imo if Rafa does win Wimbledon he will sooner than later, catch Feds in overall slam wins.

Djokovic looks healthy. Murray just announced he’s ready to return. Delpo looks re-energized. Not to mention these young dudes like Zvrev and Shapo. Rafa will still dominate clay, but I’d hesitate to call him the GOAT even if he passes Fed on the back of winning like 18 French Opens.

It official. The man in charge of the criminal division of the DOJ is a former lawyer for the Russian bank with ties to the Russian government with little or no back ground in criminal prosecution.

I guess there just isn’t anybody these days in the GOP that doesn’t have ties to Putin. Putin is laughing because the communists were so stupid. They spent all that money on military equipment while he was able to buy the GOP for kopeks on the ruble.

It’s not “little to no background” it’s “he’s never prosecuted a case.”

I’ve got more experience than the head of the DOJ’s criminal division. Sweet Lord.

Another former Sessions aide. His predecessor was Chris Wray so I guess we know his career path.

And then there is this… Don’t we have crimes these 100 plus prosecutors should be trying? Besides the Russian ones…

So Manafort tried to get to stay at Northern Neck detention center and the judge said this:
While denying Manafort’s request to stay at Northern Neck, the Judge said: “The professionals at the Alexandria Detention Center are very familiar with housing high-profile defendants including foreign and domestic terrorists, spies and traitors.

Yeah, Alexandria is well versed on dealing with traitors. Good luck Paulie Walnuts.
