A World of Hurt in the Boardroom
Taki’s Magazine, by Joe Bob Briggs

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/8/2018 5:58:52 PM

NEW YORK—Apparently a whole bunch of CEOs and public officials and celebrities and high sheriffs of various sorts have been writhing around in their mahogany offices, screaming in agony. I speak, of course, of the painful decision. If somebody calls a press conference and starts out, “Regrettably, we have made the painful decision...” ...you may be shocked and astounded to find out by the end of that sentence that all of your assumptions about pain itself are incorrect. It’s not the guy getting fired who’s in pain, it’s the guy who fired him. It’s not the thousand workers being laid

Comments:
Joe Bob turns his attention to “The Painful Decision” and those poor souls who make them…

He IS good!

Stormy Lawyer Michael
Avenatti Plays Media Again
Big Journalism, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 5/9/2018 10:33:36     Post Reply
Based only on a tweet from the insanely partisan Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing porn star Stormy Daniels, NBC News (home of proven liars Joy Reid and Brian Williams) chose to light the world on fire with this overcooked nothingburger: “Daniels’ lawyer: Cohen got $500K from Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg.“ The implication, of course, is that it was actually a Russian oligarch (with close ties to Putin natch) who paid the $130,000 to silence Stormy so Trump could become president and turn the White House over to the Kremlin.(Snip)Except… There is no proof that the “company controlled by a Russian Oligarch with

(Video) Former Secretary of State John Kerry appeared on MSNBC Tuesday and defended meeting with Iran Foreign Minister Javad Zarif at the United Nations to help try to save the Iran deal. (Snip) "By the way, my conversations with these people are the normal conversations that I assure you every former secretary of state has with leaders in other countries with people that we know as we try to educate ourselves and make sure we´re up to date on what´s happening in the world," Kerry said.

John McCain: Fake Maverick

John McCain’s Republican Party is over, perhaps before it even got started. That’s the argument Daniel McCarthy makes at Spectator/USA. It is worth considering. McCain has always enjoyed being called a “maverick”—a moniker used by friend and foe alike in describing him.(Snip)Yet McCain, in spite of his fairly unoriginal path to advancement (is there a quicker way for a Republican to get the attention of the media than to denounce his own party?), did manage to stumble into a formula that for one brief shining moment looked like it might work for him and for the GOP in 2008. That moment

When President Trump presided over a business roundtable in Cleveland last weekend, it was one of several events he has hosted in the Midwest since Election Day. Trump held a raucous victory rally in Ohio just a few weeks after he won the presidency, and has since made frequent trips to Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan: He will visit Elkhart, Indiana on Thursday. Trump skipped the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last month and instead campaigned in central Michigan. “I love this state and I love the people of this state,” Trump told the enthusiastic crowd. “You may have heard I was invited to

Did you hear the one about the fat black woman on the plane? It’s a real knee-slapper, at least for those of us who are not too morbidly obese to reach our knees. Last week, the angriest fat black woman on the internet, race-baiting “intersectional feminist” blogger Amber Phillips (a self-described “social justice organizer”), boarded an American Airlines flight from Raleigh-Durham to D.C., and hilarity ensued. For those of you unfamiliar with Phillips, her podcast is called The Black Joy Mixtape, an ironic name, as the show is mainly an excuse for Phillips and her cohost to exude misery. Sitting

Seldom have I been as glad to be wrong as I am tonight about the West Virginia Republican primary for the United States Senate. I thought Don Blankenship would romp. But West Virginia Republican voters did not let their nation down. They had 29 reasons to say no. And they did. (Snip)I had the political obituary for the West Virginia Senate race written. In my head. A victory by Blankenship would show a party out of touch with the electorate. Republican voters have every reason to be ticked at the party. We finally elected a Republican Legislature after 84 years and what did

Michael Cohen Puts Up Family
Apartment Against Bank Debts

Michael Cohen, the longtime personal attorney for President Donald Trump who has been drawn into a potentially costly legal battle, has put up his family’s Manhattan apartment as collateral for millions of dollars in loans to his troubled taxi business. The transaction, outlined in public filings this week, indicates the financial pressure on Cohen is hitting close to home as federal prosecutors delve into a broad range of his business activities, including a hush payment to a porn actress. As of March, businesses owned by Cohen and his wife owed Sterling National Bank of Montebello, New York, as much as $12.8 million

President Donald Trump announced Tuesday the U.S. will pull out of the landmark nuclear accord with Iran, dealing a profound blow to U.S. allies and potentially deepening the president´s isolation on the world stage. "Today, we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie," Trump said in a televised address. "The fact is, this was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made. It didn´t bring calm. It didn´t bring peace, and it never will." "The United States does not make empty threats," he said. Trump´s decision means Iran´s government must now decide whether to follow the U.S.

Trump Withdraws U.S. From

WASHINGTON — President Trump declared on Tuesday that he was pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, unraveling the signature foreign policy achievement of his predecessor, Barack Obama, and isolating the United States among its Western allies. “This was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made,” Mr. Trump said at the White House in announcing his decision. “It didn’t bring calm, it didn’t bring peace, and it never will.” Mr. Trump’s announcement, while long anticipated and widely telegraphed, plunges America’s relations with European allies into deep uncertainty. They have committed to staying in the

Washington - President Donald Trump announced Tuesday he is quitting the Iran nuclear deal, pitting him against the United States´ closest allies and leaving the future of Tehran´s nuclear ambitions in question. "I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal," Trump said from the White House. "It is clear to me that we cannot prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement," he said. "The Iran deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing we know exactly what will happen." In announcing his decision, Trump will initiate

Washington-Today marks the first major primary day of the 2018 elections, with four states -- North Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia and Ohio -- voting. There are no two people who love elections more than me and CNN resident big brain Harry Enten. So we spent this morning exchanging emails about Don Blankenship, the vagaries of public polling, why Harry thinks West Virginia is a fascinating state and why today might tell us just how much the GOP is Donald Trump´s party now. Our conversation -- raw and uncut! -- is below. Cillizza: Happy Primary Day! I love these days. Democracy

In the bombshell New Yorker piece that resulted in Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s resignation over multiple allegations of sexual misconduct Monday night, one of his accusers claims that she was urged to keep quiet about his alleged physical abuse because “Schneiderman was too valuable a politician for the Democrats to lose.” “After the former girlfriend ended the relationship” the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer report, “she told several friends about the abuse. A number of them advised her to keep the story to herself, arguing that Schneiderman was too valuable a politician for the Democrats to lose.”

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called on the Senate to reject Gina Haspel´s nomination to become CIA director Wednesday, charging that she was unable to address concerns with her role in the use of enhanced interrogation techniques during the Bush Administration. "Today, Gina Haspel testified before the Senate and to the country about her qualifications to lead the CIA. This occasion provided an opportunity to provide details about her experience in the CIA, explain her involvement in the so-called enhanced interrogation program during the Bush Administration, and account for the mistakes the country made in torturing detainees

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) wrote in his upcoming memoir that he does not regret alerting the FBI about the so-called Steele dossier, which includes allegations about President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. McCain acknowledged in January 2017 that he delivered a dossier of “sensitive information” to then-FBI Director James Comey. In his upcoming book, "The Restless Wave," McCain wrote that he "did what duty demanded I do" in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain said, according to excerpts of the book published

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday warned the Trump administration against going easy on North Korea in talks about its nuclear program just because that country released three U.S. detainees. "We cannot forget: No regime has the right to hold American citizens in captivity without cause, and under no circumstances should American citizens be viewed as bargaining chips," Schumer said Wednesday on the Senate floor. "If countries in the world think they can detain Americans and get something in return, we´ll see many more hostages,” he said. He added that he was “rooting for” the

Former President Barack Obama had some barely veiled criticism for President Trump at a Monday talk in San Diego, implying that American values “are not being upheld.” “I’ve been trying to be careful about not editorializing too much. When I get worried about our country, or the world, it is not around a particular issue,” Obama said, according to NTK Network. “I worry when our values are not being upheld,” he said. Obama added, “Our democracy, just like any organization, can’t work if, for example, we don’t insist on facts. Like, facts are really useful. We can’t make good decisions

"Exactly what comes next is unclear, but we certainly will face a far worse situation than today," she said.

State Attorney General Eric T.

I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.” About an hour before the attorney general quit, Gov. Andrew M.

Former President Barack Obama re-emerged on Tuesday to chide his successor for withdrawing the United States from an international agreement regulating Iran's nuclear activities. Obama said in a long statement that he posted to social media accounts that Donald Trump had made 'a serious mistake' in reneging on the obligations the U.S. agreed to when it signed on to the accord. 'Without the JCPOA, the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East,' he said. If the deal falls apart because of Trump's action, Obama warned, 'We could be hastening the
