Who said what, and when...

Did Grassley's comments make the cable news channels?


If not, why not?

BTW, I've yet to see anyone dispute the accuracy of Grassley's comments.

Sketchy goings on

From: TV Newser
I dunno.

Almost brings on a certain nostalgia for an era when TV news reporting didn't rely so much on cheap on-camera "gotcha" gimmicks.

Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate...

It would appear last week's attempt at assassinating Republicans have not deterred additional talk of political violence. It would appear there are those on the left clamoring for more such things.

NBC News is among those reporting some comments from actor Johnny Depp:
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked a cheering crowd at the Glastonbury music festival in the U.K. on Thursday night. “Now I want to clarify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been awhile and maybe it’s time.”

Gotta love the hastag here

Via Twitter:

Gun control failed again

It would appear some of the toughest gun control laws on the books, laws more stringent than Democrats profess to want on a national basis, failed to deter last week's would-be assassin targeting Republican members of Congress. 

Black hoodies are the new brown shirts

Strikes me, it's the self-labeled anti-fascists who have embraced the fascist model and tactics.

And violence is a big part of their game.

Dems still don't get it

Why is it so many Democrats can't accept their candidate lost. Why do so many Democrats insist on vilifying and attacking anyone who doesn't embrace their so-called progressive doctrine?



Democrats draw ever tighter exclusionary circles of who they accept as acceptable, and seemingly attack anyone outside those circles.

And then they get befuddled that they can't seem to win elections.

Go figure.

Easy target

Anybody still running Windows 7? 

If you are, you may rethink it after reading about the major hack at Hollywood's Larson Studios.

Via Variety:
They eventually pieced together how the attack had unfolded. The Dark Overlord had been scanning the internet for PCs running older versions of Windows that it could easily break into, and happened to stumble across an old computer at Larson Studios that was still running Windows 7. “They were basically just trolling around to see if they could find a computer that they could open,” Dondorf explained. “It wasn’t aimed at us.”

Duck and cover

It would appear the Young Democratic Socialists group at the University of Georgia have chosen to reorganize outside to the university framework, according to campus media. The move appears to follow the group coming under scrutiny by the university.

Something to think about

Shattered

"James Comey’s reputation is shattered, and all by his own doing. And there is a certain sweetness in knowing that the man Comey hated, despised, and considered his moral and intellectual inferior, is the one who broke him." - Kurt Schlichter, at Townhall

Comey fizzles. Apparently not what MSM expected

Former FBI Director James Comey outed himself as a leaker, labeled himself a coward in testimony before a Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday.  A guy like that had no business being left in charge of the FBI. To his credit, Comey did debunk a big chunk of the MSM's anti-Trump reporting. But the reality of Thursday's  testimony will likely do little to stem the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) affecting many in DC.

I did enjoy listening to NPR Thursday afternoon as the hosts inserted plenty of "what-ifs" and spun more potential conspiracy theory in attempts to make Comey's testimony look like a winner for the anti-Trump movement.  The usual NPR smuggness seemed to be missing, however.  I guess it's hard to sound smug when you're deliberately stretching as hard as they were.
