Empty Gestures

Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac

Eleventy-dimensional Stratergery from Devin Nunes!

When Democratic Rep. Adam B. Schiff takes over leadership of the House Intelligence Committee from the GOP’s Devin ‘Midnight Runner’ Nunes, he says his first priority is to replace partisan rancor with comity.

No, really. He said it.

Given that Schiff plans to investigate whether Russia has leverage over their agent Comrade Trump and to place greater scrutiny on Bone-Saudi Arabia and North Korea, 5000 Quatloos says ending the infighting seems unlikely.

Just saying: Oxford Dictionaries has chosen ‘toxic‘ as its international word of the year, selecting it from a shortlist that included such politically inflected contenders as ‘gaslighting,’ “incel’ and ‘techlash.'”

UPDATE 1:  “Saudi Arabia releases findings of Khashoggi inquiry, seeks death penalty for five people it says who ordered the journalist’s death.” (WashPost)

    Just wondering, do the five people wanted by the Saudis happen to be dissident journalists by any chance?

    I would never have noticed this, except for a hint I saw somewhere, so I googled it. Funny how it didn’t get much attention, but with a contentious election happening, I suppose it wasn’t hardly worthy of much notice, but they went and did it AGAIN:

    “Another dissident journalist has reportedly been tortured and killed in Saudi Arabia.
    Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser is said to have been murdered in jail a month after Jamal Khashoggi was slaughtered in the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate. ”

    And Trump’s response is sanctions. On 17 individuals.
    I don’t think he’s doing ‘sanctions’ right.

    Adam Schiff is remarkable for his mordant sense of humor.
