Foot-N-Mouth Thursday

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s lawyer, may end up being the strongest witness against president we’ve seen thus far. He just may not realize it yet.

In his short stint as Trump’s legal defense attorney, his embarrassing habits have not just been a spectacle — they’ve seemed to raise serious legal problems for the president.

The case where his behavior has seemed most damaging has been in the Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal hush money cases, for which Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen has been sentenced to prison. Speaking with “Fox & Friends” on May 3 about the Daniels allegations, Giuliani said, “Imagine if that came out of October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton . . . Cohen didn’t even ask. Cohen made it go away. He did his job.”

This implied, clearly, that the payment was a campaign contribution — as Cohen, the parent company of the National Enquirer, and federal prosecutors have all said — which is why it was illegal.

    This wind is getting old!

    Sustained southeast winds are expected to range between 25 and 40 mph, with gusts up to 60 mph, according to the warning. Winds are predicted to increase rapidly Thursday morning, with the strongest gusts expected for a few hours Thursday afternoon, the NWS said…

    According to an email from Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office Division of Emergency Management Deputy Director John Gargett, the NWS also issued a small craft advisory and gale warning for Whatcom County waters from 10 p.m. Wednesday through 4 a.m. Friday, with winds expected to reach 30 to 45 knots and waves predicted to reach 5-7 feet in height on Thursday.

    With high tide expected around 2 p.m. Thursday, Gargett said the projected tidal level could be 10.9 feet, and he warned drivers and beachgoers to be cautious along low-lying coast roads and beaches, particularly in Birch Bay, Sandy Point, Lummi Island and Point Roberts.

        King Donald. We have a king, he makes all the rules. A country of over 325 million people and one guy gets to make all the decisions.

        Yes, closing the government even though he told Congress he wouldn’t.

        King Donald decided on a whim to pull troups out of Syria, causing all kinds of problems. But he doesn’t care.

        General Mattis, Secretary of Defense has quit, because of the Syria decision. Last day will be in February.

        Some kind of disturbance in the Attorney General debacle, that Whittaker guy.

        The chaos is escalating at a record clip.

        Oh! Looks like Mueller may present his report in February. Can’t wait for that.

    Any time generals advise against withdrawing from a war zone I am suspect of their motives. I can’t help but think about all the advice President Lyndon Johnson got from his generals about escalating the war in Vietnam. We all know how that turned out.

    I was drafted in 1967 and sent to ‘Nam the following year. I made it back and was one of the lucky ones. Over 58,000 Americans came home in body bags, and for what exactly?

    Sorry, but I think it is time that we stopped sacrificing our blood and treasure to police the world, especially in the quicksand that is the Middle East. At some point, fighting terrorism becomes a police matter, not a military one.

    Time to pull out of Syria, and let’s also do the same for Afghanistan and Iraq. If our sons and daughters were subject to being drafted I seriously doubt we would still have a military presence in that part of the world. The multiple deployments we are putting our troops through is unconscionable and unfair, and it is doing irreparable harm to them, their families, and ultimately, the nation.

    Well said Len. Our leaders don’t care about our sons and daughters. Bring back the draft then let the draft darging politicians deal with the reaction.

    @Len great comment! Thank you! The “War on Terror” should have always been a matter for police and special forces. Deploying large quantities of troops to these quasi-medieval locations and expecting them to turn them into a bastions of American-style democracy was a big con job on our citizenry and our allies. Trillions of dollars wasted.
