Josh - what do you make of Porter's assertion that HE TOOK THE PHOTOS that were circulated?

So what? Big deal!

She said he punched her in the first place and she had him take the picture to show him the next time.

More than two complaints and TROs against him.

FBI wouldn’t support a security clearance for him.

Point there being: He didn't have security clearance. But he handled all the docs passed on to the POTUS. But he didn't have security clearance. But some of the docs and some of the meetings that he attended with the POTUS were top secret?

Let's not go back to the dumb game of "I know you are but what am I?" but let us not forget the apoplexy of the right when Hillary (who had security clearance) received emails on a server that did not have security clearance. These same people are AOK with Trump's team KNOWINGLY putting classified documents in front of the eyes of a non classified- approved person.

Did he leak info? I don't know ( I wouldn't think so, but this administration has been sieve like). Is he indicative of a larger issue in the Trump Administration? He certainly is cause for investigation. An Audit ought to be done to make sure everyone who needs security clearance has a valid certificate.

Given the level of reported abuse, over an extended period, it might be something in their relationship, some way of maintaining a threat, that we cannot understand.  But the bruise and swollen cheekbone is there, whoever snapped the shutter.  And Porter's disclaimers that it wasn't all that bad are undermined by the photos and the reports of both ex-wives.


I had missed this and so am not certain of the degails, but "I didn't hit her THAT hard" is a pretty crappy argument.

We must not forget the blood that was shed to secure basic human rights. America is backsliding into the muck...

Not nearly as crappy as the ones that are used to justify the continuing reign of his ultimate boss, the Corpulent Interloper. GOP members and the RNC are keeping their Wynn money to further attack women and the poor this fall, just to add another data point.

The Primative Lesion himself has sampled every kind of rape from marital to statutory along with many lesser forms of assault and harassment. They can’t want to hold people accountable for that kind of stuff and they won’t unless the public forces the issue.

Off topic and apropos nothing, the entity for which I work sent around an email notifying us that it will be zponsoring prostate screening, including a Digital Exam, to take place in the parking lot tomorrow. I am appalled.  A man needs his privacy at a time like that!

Good reminder.  When white students were shot in Ohio, they got a Neil Young song.  I like this comment --

I still think the safest and most private anal probings are to be had in a UFO.  And you get a trip into orbit that does not involve handing your life savings to Elon Musk.

In fairness, the difference between a Public Digital Prostate Exam and my employer's normal personnel policies may be mere semantics.

I don't know what happens when people die. Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try. It's like a song I can hear playing right in my ear. That I can't sing. I can't help listening and I can't help feeling stupid standing around.

If the Trump family and their pet dog are paraded off overseas permanently...there'll be no one left to "Make America Great Again".

On my tv last night was shown a section of the current wall...and illegals simply getting over it at the rate of one every 3 seconds.
