Kellyanne Conjob* fires the lies so fast and furious, she could be artillery.

15. So did I. A slam dunk.

My husband calls her Jodyanne Jerkmeoff. And she is truly a gatling gun of deceit. INDEED a Nebelwerfer.

4. Reuters called this right 12 days after inauguration

They are treating the Trump administration as an authoritarian regime, in that they report as they do in other countries where government spokesman lie. They don't focus on access but instead on finding truthful information from other sources.

6. weak as water

corporate TV media is demonstrating its lameness & unwillingness to stand up for America or journalism itself, a pack of overpaid Simpering Subs meekly accepting draft-dodging Comrade Casino as their kinkster-republican Domme-in-Chief. It's as if they LIKE getting PISSED on from the oval office.

7. Interestingly, Bill James made many of the same observations...

... about sports journalism a generation ago. The Press has been lulled into thinking that the subjects of their scrutiny are their friends.

10. Sending this and other high crimes and misdemeanors

Gonna keep hammering them until all of them do their damn jobs.

17. VERY interestingly, NO major investigative journalism sources,

mainstream or other, have published YET on the 45th administration's connections to Russia via new Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross's co-directorship of Bank of Cyprus. Just brief reports that the questions have been raised.

As you'll recall, Ross's codirector is believed by some to have been appointed by Putin himself and that the bank was laundering vast sums of money for Russia at a time when the U.S. and European states were tightening sanctions to try to control Russia's various military aggressions. And now Ross has been appointed to 45's cabinet.

Many non-investigative sources are talking about this, but investigative sources of course always lag--while they investigate. And the silence so far from all of them, no little not-much-found-here reports, is very telling...

Stay "tuned."
