Good morning, all. Since it’s kinda quiet in Freeperville this week (I suspect the endless Freepathon (and The Darnold’s bizarre press conference might have depressed them a bit), it’s a good time to pick up some old stuff that The Who and Adrastos would call “Odds and sods”.
First up – more on Trump!

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would not directly state whether or not he called President Trump a “moron,” as alleged in an NBC News report, but said at a morning press conference that his “commitment to the success of our president and our country is as strong as it was the day I accepted his offer to serve.”
The report said Trump and Tillerson have battled on issues such as Iran, North Korea, Qatar and the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville; Trump has also wanted Tillerson to publicly defend him more. Tillerson allegedly called Trump a “moron” in a July 20 Pentagon meeting in response to the president suggesting that he would can the commander in Afghanistan and comparing troop-level decisions to a 1980s N.Y. restaurant renovation.
Tillerson emerged at the State Department for an unscheduled statement after the story broke, saying he wanted to “dispel this notion that I have ever considered leaving.”
“There’s never been a consideration in my mind to leave. I serve at the appointment of the president and I am here for as long as the president feels I can be useful to achieving his objectives,” he said.
Asked if he called Trump a moron, Tillerson replied, “I’m not going to deal with petty stuff like that.”
Look, in Tillerson and Trump you have two guys with BIG egos and who are very used to telling people to “jump”. Do you think it’s always going to be peaches and cream? How about your own work site always harmony.
Just another attempt to divide and conquer.
His answer sounds like he probably said it. And he hasn’t cleaned out state. And he let the homos tale over the boy scouts.

Nationalist bomb thrower Steve Bannon trashed the choice of Mike Pence as Donald Trump’s running mate — calling the socially conservative Republican “the price we pay” for winning the support of the GOP establishment, a new report said Tuesday.
Bannon and Milo Yiannopoulos, the political provocateur and former technology editor at Breitbart News, shared their dim view of the former Indiana governor in emails obtained by BuzzFeed News.
“Seems like a bad pick. Should I tweet something ambivalent about him? People are telling me Trump likely didn’t want this. …What’s our party line on this?” Yiannopoulos wrote to Bannon and Breitbart editor Alex Marlow on July 15, 2016, the day Team Trump named Pence as its choice for veep.
“This is the price we pay for cruzbots and #nevertrump movement. An unfortunate necessity … very. feel free to do whatever u want. we, as always, will remain above it all,” Bannon replied, shortly after he signed on as Trump’s campaign manager.
Two days later, Bannon approved a column by the gay Yiannopoulos asking Pence — an evangelical Christian who won’t meet or dine with a woman unless his wife, whom he calls “Mother,” is with him — to attend a “big gay party for Trump.”
“I’m cool,” Bannon wrote of the story.
“It’s a little mocking but we want to turn the screw,” Yiannopoulos answered, according to the website.

So, is Bannon’s password “password123” And Milo’s password “fudgepacker1?”
hannity is a paid clown. I used to watch and like him but he’s compromised in ways by his not covering things he knows he should just to keep his show on air. Hannity is part of problems continuing, but sure he makes his living by putting his career before doing the right thing.
He was forced on Trump, as Bush was forced on Reagan. The first sitting Veep with his own PAC? He is a RINO Trojan Horse.
I may agree with some of his personal morality, but I do not trust him – ethically or politically.
Yup. That’s what I think, too. Pence is a snake in the grass. I’m trying to come up with a name of someone – anyone – who would’ve been an excellent choice. Someone loyal.
I hope I’m wrong about Pence; he’s supposed to be a Christian. Sabotaging your boss, the President, would be decidedly un-Christian.
