Well…with the flap about James Comey of the FBI trying to influence the outcome of the election, Harry Reid just sent this letter to Comey about Trump and his cronies:
“I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act, which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”
“In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government — a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity. The public has a right to know this information. I wrote to you months ago calling for this information to be released to the public. There is no danger to American interests from releasing it. And yet, you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.”
“I led the fight to get you confirmed because I believed you to be a principled public servant,” Reid concluded. “With the deepest regret, I now see that I was wrong.”
THIS should be the story…..geez….
Well…still feeling like crap and coughing this morning so now I am sure it is a bug of some kind…so I think I’ll take it kind of easy today to see if that helps…just exhausted, too, so this one is going to be short….yesterday was a wasted day and I didn’t get anything done and today will be the same if I don’t start to feel better….I did skip the walking dead last night and I don’t miss it….they have just ruined the show….oh, wrote about that yesterday so I won’t go on about it here….one of the cable channels that I watched a lot just went out of business and that is pretty crappy…all of those people out of work and I can’t get Buffy in the morning anymore…..oh, well…that’s enough for now…just need coffee and the couch and to read more news…more later…
Well…I have been stewing on this one for the entire week after the season opening episode last Sunday….it was the most sickening and stupid tv that I have ever seen…where the hubris and arrogance of the show runners destroyed what was one of the better shows on the air. What was the purpose of killing off two of the main characters and then destroying and humiliating another one? It didn’t move the story forward and it completely wrecked the world of the Dead family that has been constructed over the past 6 years…a family who at times did lose members but you knew they would go forward and would continue to survive….now the show runners have moved the show to a darker place where humans are much more dangerous than the walkers and there is nothing that the family can do about it. This new version of TWD is not a show that I want to spend time with anymore…this 6 year fan is over the show that has devolved into nothing more that a gore fest that makes my skin crawl…maybe that is what those folks want? But, it’s not for me….and many others…maybe it just needs to die….
Well…I know I’ve been harping on the idiot Comey and his attempt to affect the election by his ham-handed letter to the repubs in congress that he knew would be used as ammunition against Hillary, but there is one more thing…or a couple of things that need to be said. First, this idiot does this breathless nonsense when he has never seen the e-mails in question…in fact, no one in the FBI has seen them since they are still negotiating the warrant that is necessary for them to be read…so…we do know that they are not from or to Hillary and that they are not classified….so what the hell was Comey doing hyping them to the repubs? Just putting his finger on the scale any way he could to help his man Trump….but, this little mess might just cost Comey his job…there has been a complaint made to the government ethics office that Comey at the very least has broken rules of the justice department and may have broken the law by revealing details of an ongoing investigation…that would be just the height of irony..that the country’s top cop breaks the law for political advantage…or just stupidity…not sure what one is worse…geez…
Well….still feel like crap today and I am thinking that it is a bug…the work around here had something to do with it but it’s more a bug…so, what am I going to do about it? Nothing, really…still need to get on the bike in a few minutes…maybe I can burn it out? Didn’t get a lot done yesterday with all of the sports on and today looks the same with the Lions and races on…I do need to clean the bathroom at some point but I may just leave that until I feel better….it has been hard to eat lately with nothing having any appeal to me…even my chili that I made Thursday is hard to get down and makes getting to enough calories a bit difficult….have been under a thousand for the past few days and I know that can make me feel bad, too, but there is really nothing I can do about it…if I had the cash I would go get some fast food…like a pizza but with no cash coming in that is not an option….oh, well….need to get back to the coffee so I’ll end here…more later….
Well…the FBI director showed his true colors Friday when he tried to change the election by a news release that announced that they have found “new” e-mails that might have something to do with Hillary’s e-mail server. Never mind that this goes against decades of policy at the FBI and that the Attorney General told Comey not to comment on an ongoing investigation, this idiot just had to wade in with his man Trump losing. My question here is why no releases on the 5 different investigations that Trump is under? You would think that the excuse of “transparency” would work both ways, wouldn’t you? Nope, not for the repubs…who can NEVER be trusted…ever! So resign, Comey, you have destroyed an trace of credibility that you had left and have ruined the reputation of the FBI along with it….geez…
Well…feel like crap this morning and I think I have a cold or something…have been hacking and coughing since yesterday and I really don’t like this at all…it’s kind of weird this morning that I am waiting for it to get light so I can get out on the bike…it is already 66 degrees so I can get out in a t-shirt after the next cup of coffee…but the wind is blowing almost 20 so that will make it a little hard…probably should take the day off with feeling this crappy but how can I miss a day this warm in the end of October? I did get some stuff done yesterday and that may have contributed to the coughing but we’ll see later in the day….I do have Man U at 10 and then right into Michigan at State and then into F1 qualifying so there will be a good chance to get a nap in, too….okay, going to go back to the couch to finish the coffee and then on the bike…more later….
Well…if this latest bullshit “investigation” wasn’t enough to show that the FBI director Comey is a hyper partisan hack, the details make it even worse…three e-mails, yep just three e-mails and none of them were on Hillary’s server and it appears that the release of the letter from Comey was coordinated with the rest of the repubs since Trump started talking about it within 5 minutes of the release and Paul Ryan immediately called for Hillary’s briefings to be suspended. Now Comey really needs to go….he should resign immediately or sooner…geez…
Well…if you didn’t think the director of the FBI was trying to influence the election with his grandstanding and scolding news conference about Hillary’s e-mails, now we have this hyper partisan idiot announcing he is re-opening the “investigation” since there have been “new” e-mails discovered…and here is where he is trying to influence the election: the e-mails that he has “found” were on some sort of a “device” and, as Pete Williams of NBC has reported, they have nothing to do with Hillary…and you can just guess that in the three paragraph announcement of the “re-opening” that
Comey doesn’t mention that fact…and this is on purpose…this partisan hack is trying to influence the election for his repub cronies…this is clear to anyone and he should be fired for it…I mean, what difference would it make if he waited until after the election..or god forbid that he just did his frickin job and kept it confidential until the new “investigation” is over. We know what his motives are and he should be fired…today….
Well…okay, this is going to be a short one this morning since I have things that need to be done before 9:30….it was a cold day on the bike yesterday and I am happy that it is warmer than that already today….okay…will be back later…have some time sensitive stuff that needs to be done right now….more later….
I’m back…got everything done I needed to and now I’m waiting for the battery in the walkman to charge…it’s pretty funny that I have co2 fog pouring out of my kitchen sink…it was a tolerable day yesterday and I made a big pot of chili so that kept me busy for a couple of hours but then I really didn’t have much else to do….and today is going to be the same with no pool since Tom is busy….so I guess I’ll take a nap later since I haven’t been sleeping at all….I should clean the bathroom and I might after the bike ride…might even be able to go out without gloves since it is almost 50 already….more later….
