Editors Tuesday

Former Sen. Mike Gravel, the Democratic Senator who released the Pentagon Papers, on Monday taunted Republicans’ public back-and-forth surrounding the release of Devin Nunes’ controversial FISA memo, arguing the GOP are cowards if they don’t publicize the report.

Gravel was discussing the Nunes memo, which House Intelligence Committee Republicans on Monday voted to release (against the recommendations of House Democrats and the Department of Justice). The House vote triggered a five-day eating period during which Donald Trump can move to block the release of the memo. Gravel said Republicans would show “the height of cowardice” if they fail to do so after hyping the memo for weeks.

“For the Congress to be a bunch of wimps and cowards and defer to the executive branch because they don’t want to take any responsibility is the height of cowardice,” he said, according to the Washington Examiner.

“The criteria for releasing anything is this: Is this something the people should know?” Gravel said. “If the Republicans feel this should be made public for the benefit of their constituents, fine, release it. The Democrats should do the same. But there is no argument to be made this stuff is secret and it’s too important for the people to know,” Gravel said.

    A “five day eating period”, I guess the puggers are really hungry from all that trump surrogacy and ass-kissing. Block the release of something that might get the POS off the hook? Not likely.

    First they have to destroy the Justice Dept. so they can move Dictatorship forward as it is the impediment to complete control.

    This whole thing wreaks of graft and corruption.

    TVD bridge return in 46 minutes; moving right along. The setting sun caused yellow clouds which were salmon color on the return.

      A speedy 13 minutes to the Hillside Cafe. Great blue bloated moon arose above the thin clouds; bright out.

        A nominal 4 minutes up to Bryan Hall for the organ concert, delightful, then 13 minutes to return home. Trip 2 today totals exactly 30 minutes while the two walks together make 76 minutes.

        Day 3: 84+76=160 minutes.

    Been arguing w/ myself about the State of the Union. I really, REALLY hate to see that guy or hear his voice, but I’m going to watch it. For the record I NEVER watch political speeches. I think I watched one by Bush when he started the illegal immigrant craze.

    Hemp is awesome stuff!

    I’m boycotting rich boy’s blather and focusing on more important things such as car auctions on the TeeVee, Truck Fump! Lots of little sucking loonies kissing his ass, for what? Money most likely.

    Greed and money don’t mix.

    I sat there for over an hour. I started to fast forward when they went on the clapping jags. I finally jumped up and came in here and left the sound up. His voice grates on my nerves though so I went back out there and have it paused. After about 20 minutes I’l go back out, fast forward and get to the pundits.

    It was the most nauseating thing I could have done to myself. Me, who NEVER watched those things, watched that one. You ought to hear all the things he’s going to do to cure everything in this country. Disgusting. Oh, he’s going to lower the drug prices. He’s going to get Congress on that. I laughed out loud.

    I think he said he wants to add a trillion to the deficit to use on infrastructure. HA! Oh, my god…it was all so sickening. Just watching all the hoi peloi walk in, DeVos, Rick Perry…all of Trump’s cabinet. Only 4 Supremes showed up, one of which was Kagan.

    I wish to heck I never started watching it. My head feels scrambled, I feel off kilter. Ugh. His irritating voice and delivery did me in, I CAN’T STAND THAT GUY!
