The Quotable Laura Ingraham

Laura Ingraham Salutes Hair Furer Donald Trump

“Consistent with American law when the parties arrested, your children are either sent to relatives or they become wards of the state. Since more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents, and temporarily housed in what are essentially summer camps or, as the San Diego Union Tribune described them today as looking basically like boarding schools.”

…you know, if your boarding school was called Auschwitz-Birkenau, and who can forget the fun times singing around the fire at ol’ Camp Dachau?

Good times, huh, Ilsa She-wolf of the SS. Good times!

Grifters Gotta Grift, Part Infinity

About those tariffs…

Oh, Wilburrrrrr…

“Amid President Trump’s headaches confirming cabinet secretaries, from neophyte Rex Tillerson to conflict-prone Scott Pruitt to unprepared Betsy DeVos, all of whom squeezed through, Wilbur Ross was a tonic. With his blue power suit and decades of dealmaking, he had the look and the résumé of a commerce secretary. And unlike his boss, Ross promised to divest from almost all his holdings upon entering government, drawing bipartisan praise en route to an easy confirmation. “You have really made a very personal sacrifice,” said Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut. “Your service has resulted in your divesting yourself of literally hundreds of millions of dollars.” In November 2017, Ross confirmed in writing to the federal Office of Government Ethics that he had divested everything he promised.”

Wait for it…

“But that was not true.”

And then Forbes goes into details both broad and arcane of how the Living Unisom has both lied and grifted his way in The Fourth Reich. And because he lied to Forbes about his wealth (for decades!), Forbes rightly has been on him like white on Sessions, er, rice.

But as you might have guessed, Ol’ Wilbur has a Russian connection too, as do all the cool kid in Comrade Trump’s crime wave:

  • For most of last year, Ross served as secretary of commerce while maintaining stakes in companies co-owned by the Chinese government, a shipping firm tied to Vladimir Putin’s inner circle, a Cypriot bank reportedly caught up in the Robert Mueller investigation and a huge player in an industry Ross is now investigating. It’s hard to imagine a more radioactive portfolio for a cabinet member.
  • To this day, Ross’ family apparently continues to have an interest in these toxic holdings. Rather than dump them all, the commerce secretary sold some of his interests to Goldman Sachs—and, according to Ross himself, put others in a trust for his family members. He continued to deal with China, Russia and others while evidently knowing that his family’s interests were tied to those countries.
  • In addition, five days before reports surfaced last fall that Ross was connected to cronies of Vladimir Putin through a shipping firm called Navigator Holdings, the secretary of commerce, who likely knew about the reporting, shorted stock in the Kremlin-linked company, positioning himself to make money on the investment when share prices dropped.

He shorted Putin? Oh, boy, Wilburrrrr’s gonna take a cup of tea and a (dirt) nap! Of course, how will anyone tell the difference?

The Morning Quote

The Hill:

Sessions appeared on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” amid a growing uproar over the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy to combat illegal immigration. As part of the policy, thousands of migrant children have been separated from their parents.

Ingraham noted that some opponents have compared the practice to “concentration camps,” while others have condemned it as a human rights violation.

“Well it’s a real exaggeration. Of course in Nazi Germany, they were keeping the Jews from leaving the country,” Sessions said.

…and a chorus of scarecrows started singing.

I Don’t Mind Trump Going Into Space

Pigs! In! Space!

…it’s the return trip that bums me out.

Trump Wants ‘Space Force’ Added to Military as New U.S. Service

President Donald Trump called for a new “Space Force” to be added to the U.S. military as an armed service separate from the Pentagon’s five traditional uniformed branches.

“When it comes to defending America, it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space,” Trump said Monday at a White House event on space policy. “We must have American dominance in space.”

It’s like he thinks he’s finished fucking-up the earth and now he wants to take his grift into space. But on the bright side, imagine what he’d do when the scientists tell him to not open the hatch. Problem solved!

All I can think of is when Chimpy wanted to do this, too/also:

Mars. Needs. Chimpy.

The Death of the Media, CNN Edition


From the Reliable Sources email thingie:

On Sunday’s show, I asked Brian Karem if he has any regrets about his outburst at last Thursday’s W.H. briefing. “Come on,” he said to Sarah Sanders, “you’re a parent! Don’t you have any empathy for what these people are going through?”

“Um, I have an apology to make,” Karem told me. “I apologize to every human being who’s had to suffer, who has less than I do,” that “I did not come to the table sooner. I’m sorry to those people for waiting so long and holding my temper. I’m sorry that I am extremely angry with this administration that has lied to me, continues to lie to me.”

We went back and forth, and Splinter thought I was too tough on Karem… NewsBusters didn’t think so… Judge for yourself, here’s the segment…

OK, I’ll judge!

Brian Stelter, you failed. You failed all of us, and you failed your fellow journalists. This administration lies to us, not just now and then, but everyday, all day. Elmira Gantry Huckabeee-Sanders is a liar. Her office is right out of 1984’s MiniTruth, it is pure propaganda. There is no denying that.

You, Brian Stelter, came across as a boot-licking toady, asking a colleague to apologize to the very people that calls your profession an enemy of the people. And then trying to shame Karem by showing us all the Pravda, er, Fox News clip, where they exploit him, you endorsed Fox News’ agitprop.

You may think that was being objective, but what it was was being complicit.

(Edited to make more clear it is Brian Stelter who is the problem, not Brian Karem.)
