Conspiracy of Dunces Thursday


It was a Google Alert that notified me I was part of what was then the latest Republican conspiracy theory.

The message, in mid-January, pointed me to a column by Rep. Jim Jordan, a very conservative Republican from a very Republican district in Ohio, posted on the very conservative site Newsmax. Jordan, who was an assistant wrestling coach before entering politics, had drawn up a list of “18 top questions to be answered about Russia and the FBI.” I was Question No. 16.

In his introduction to this list, Jordan noted, “The American people deserve to know the extent of Russian interference into our free elections.” Yet for weeks, Jordan had been one of the leading Republicans decrying the investigation of the Trump-Russia scandal led by special counsel Robert Mueller. His 18 questions contained not one query about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s covert attack on the 2016 election, nor did they consider any of the multiple interactions between the Trump campaign and Russians.

Jordan’s main focus was a very different claim: that the FBI had secretly plotted to keep Donald Trump from winning. It was a manifestation of what has become the dominant line of attack as conservatives seek to torpedo the Trump-Russia investigation.

    Pillaging of the IRA’s continues as the Dow screams downward, they want ALL the money.

    I figured out why cheeto-boy is so cheeto-ish, because it was so hard to turn Satan white after all those years in hell.

    Typical 14 minutes to the Hillside Cafe. A salmon sunset.

    Due to the Jones Act it is not possible to ship LNG from the Gulf to New England.

    I finally made it to Meijer’s today. Roads were clear, sun shining. The parking lot was loaded, the store super busy. The cashier told me it was because of the storm coming. Oh, that’s right. People who have lived their entire lives here and have NEVER been snowed in for more than one day lose their minds and rush the grocery stores for…provisions. I could be snowed in for two weeks and never starve. Plenty of things to make meals out of around here. Don’t they have things in their freezer canned goods on the shelf? Leftovers?

    I guess we’re supposed to get hit with maybe 6 inches of snow starting tomorrow. I never check weather out. Bob always did, Jill does. I never do. I look out the window, that’s how I know what the weather is.

    I never got to watch “Outbreak” last night. My DVD player, which gets me on the internet, updated its software and the password and username for Netflix were gone. I don’t know them, Pete set it up. I caught up with things I had on the DVR. I watched all my funny stuff because I needed to lift my spirits. “Drunk History” is so much fun to watch. I wish I had thought to watch that a couple years back when Bob was in better shape. I mean mentally. He was slowing down this past year so he probably wouldn’t have been able to keep up with it.

    The old Bob though, he would have loved it. I also had a couple “Whose Line Is It Anyway” recorded, knocked them out, too.

    I watched a zombie movie earlier. Stumbled on that one on my library site when I was looking for something else. It was fun, I like the zombies. So utterly ridiculous, and scary at the same time. I think I like them because when I was a kid I loved to read horror comics. The cover art had corpses clawing out of graves, their patches of hair looking like Donald Trump’s head looked the other day when the wind lifted his rug. When I saw that clip, I saw my horror comics, vividly. *shudder*

    Latest news: Omirosa, friend of Trumps from the Apprentice who he hired to work in the White House and who got fired, whispered some crap about Trump’s tweets to someone on a show called Big Brother. What to make of that, she knew she was on camera. I guess that’s the point of that show, cameras watch you all day.

    An aide to Trump resigned after his two ex wives told the press he hit them. One even showed a picture of a black eye she got from him. Media is all abuzz about that guy.

    Government to shut down again tonight. Democrats and several republicans are against the budget, too big. *sigh* They just passed a ridiculous tax cut then turn around and spend a bunch of money we don’t have anymore because they just gave it away.

    I have the TV off right now because they just keep rehashing those stories, I’m saving electricity. I’ll turn it on later when I’m done in here and see if they shut the place down again.
