Vulture Capitalist Paul Singer @ work.

The FBI should have disclosed to the court that the Steele dossier was originally paid for by Paul “The Vulture” Singer — who has a record of creating what James Comey himself calls “salacious and unverifiable” files on his enemies.

I know, Singer created a dossier on me.

Apparently, it claimed fantastical sex and ethics nonsense — sorry, no peeing Russian prostitutes — that he peddled to news media to destroy me. The Vulture’s toady called BBC to tell my producer, “We have a file on Greg Palast.” The BBC was un-moved, noting that “Palast has a file on YOU” — and BBC was running with the Singer investigation.

But the Vulture’s file seemed to work in the USA: I’d been a regular on US mainstream news outlets like Washington Journal. It suddenly stopped dead. And not one network dares say a word against Singer.

In nature, vultures vomit on their attackers. In my case, I won a liable judgment against the sludge. But Singer’s vomit remains on my name.

I note that that coward dirtball Devin Nunes did not mention in his memo that The Vulture originated the “Steele” dossier. (Kudos to my old comrade, the ethically-challenged Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, for charging Clinton a second time for the work paid for by a Republican.)

The FISA court is a secretive chamber which Edward Snowden courageously exposed as the judicial blessing of an ugly police spy state. Is that what we are lauding today? [My hat off to ex-CIA agent and whistleblower Mel Goodman for refusing to join the FBI praise choir.]

The joke’s on you, by the way: Trump has now held secret meetings with The Vulture — and, interestingly, Trump’s promise to close Singer’s favored tax loophole, vanished.

    First I saw Trump at some meeting, journalists asking him about the looming government shut down, or the immigrant thing with him saying he’s all for a government shut down if he doesn’t get his way in a couple days, shut it down.

    THEN an Elon Musk rocket was launched and I watched it on MSNBC. Ok, just another rocket into space but shiver-me-timbers, the two rocket boosters that disengaged from the main rocket fell back to earth, and at just the right moment they turned over, fire shot out the bottom and they both landed in tandem RIGHT WHERE THEY WANTED THEM TO LAND! I mean, I WAS BLOWN AWAY! That was utterly remarkable, and the future of space exploration is going to get a LOT better.

    One of my favorite TV shows back in 1954 when I was a kid was “Rocky Jones, Space Ranger.” Rocky’s space ship took off like that AND landed the same way. Seeing Musk’s two rockets pull a Rocky Jones made my day. I actually whooped out loud!!!!

    Screw Trump, that was REAL news~!!!
