Former President Trump ordered the Pentagon to release all of its information on “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAP) within 18 days in his last coronavirus relief bill in December 2020. More inexplicable sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) will be released for public scrutiny in June — including a UFO that broke...

Trump sells off his private helicopter after losing the election, so perhaps he’s cash-short, even as he’s running another grift, claiming he’d run again in 2024. However, there’s other shenanigans possible in the remaining 70 days, including a small-scale international military action that in itself could cause a continuing problem...

On cue, Ivanka appears on a news outlet in order to humanize the Trumpian psychosis ranting against his Senate trial. She softballed her way through accountability for her father’s immigration policy, because that’s “not her portfolio”. Mehdi Hasan should have been asking the questions: Note the word Presidential near the...

Shocking. Someone in the admin doesn’t like the Prince and Princess of Griftland…. Axios “Scoop: White House leak to House Dems on Jared and Ivanka's clearances The news: The White House this week rejected the committee's request for documents on the process for granting security clearances to staffers.

I have a humble request for all of the non-FAUX News media outlets out there. Pretty please, with sprinkles on top, do you think you can pull your collective heads out of Michael Cohen’s ass long enough to take a good look around? There is some serious shit going on...

Guess the ‘vanka half of Jarvanka is unfit to know government secrets, too. CNN: President Donald Trump pressured his then-chief of staff John Kelly and White House counsel Don McGahn to grant his daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump a security clearance against their recommendations, three people familiar with the...

I’m not being facetious, and the title isn’t click bait. If our congress was more like Amazon, and we could all chip in a few bucks for “Prime, with free 2 day shipping” the Judiciary committee could pass articles of impeachment today, if that is, they only took one day off for...

This really shouldn’t come as any kind of a surprise. Like the family of a terminally ill patient, we’ve been dreading this day for some time now. The final outcome was never in doubt, the only questions left were when, and how. The when is now, but the how is...

I have always enjoyed Michael Isikoff’s work as an investigative journalist. Not only does he uncover some really cool, nasty shit, but like his co-author David Corn, he has a natural talent for taking what could be complex and confusing political issues, and simplifying them so that people without a...

Vanity Fair's latest reporting is not surprising but very discomforting, considering this guy has the football. “TRUMP IS NUTS. THIS TIME REALLY FEELS DIFFERENT”: TRUMP REJECTS “WAR COUNCIL” INTERVENTION, GOES IT ALONE With his closest allies defecting, the president increasingly trusts only his instincts. He “got joy” from stripping former C.I.A....

So Donald Trump tweeted this: x Just watched former Intelligence Official Phillip Mudd become totally unglued and weird while debating wonderful @PARISDENNARD over Brennan’s Security Clearance. Dennard destroyed him but Mudd is in no mental condition to have such a Clearance. Should be REVOKED? @seanhannity — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)...

So, I’m in the middle of reading this New Yorker piece about John Brennan’s evolution from disgusted but quiet dissenter in the matter of drumpf befouling the Oval Office to full-throated critic of the same revolting development, when I came across this tidbit, which I’ve decided to share: “The first public clash...

Truth may not be truth, but gibberish is always gibberish. Rudy Giuliani, whose public meltdown has been more glaring than a Raiders of the Lost Ark Nazi’s, is now weighing in on Let’s-endanger-our-national-security-by-stripping-away-security-clearances-from-former-CIA-directors-out-of-petty-spite-gate:  x To John Brennan: Today President Trump granted our request (Jay Sekulow and me) to handle your...

Last night our favorite reporter told us the real reason dumbass is stripping officials of the security clearances; doing so denies them access to their files and notes sequestered in the various agencies they worked for and makes it impossible to prepare for testimony that might be required of them...
