NH is a happening place in politics!  I like Joe and I hang with the Carrol County Democrats during elections.

"Even as he repeatedly denies any interest in running for president in 2020, US Representative Joe Kennedy III will head to New Hampshire, a state that kicks off the presidential primary season, to deliver a keynote speech at a major Democratic Party dinner this fall.

Kennedy, a Democrat from Newton, will be a featured speaker at the Grover Cleveland dinner this October, an event that raises money for the Carroll County Democrats. He will headline the event with onetime US Senate candidate Jason Kander of Missouri, who is making moves to run for president."

What a dizzying couple of days:  Cohen, Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Scooter Libby, Broidy - did I miss anyone?

A good article in The New Yorker online yesterday about Paul Ryan's utter failure as a politician, even using his own terms to measure it.  He will be remembered for tax cuts that greatly expanded national debt.  This made his own goal of cutting "entitlements" something that will be toxic for the GOP to discuss for a long time to come given that they  pushed through these tax cuts for the wealthy that expanded the debt.

With France (who seems to have sane leadership) in on this...I don't know what to think.

Yeah  but I'm not sure what I think of their leadership except that it beats ours :-)  It is France being in on it that makes me do a double-take.

Administrator Cathy,

I think that's pretty much what the entire courthouse and internet looked like!  I long ago stopped trying to figure out what is going to happen next in this saga.

"Cohen’s defense attorneys refused to identify the then-anonymous third client — one of three Cohen worked for between 2017 and 2018 — in a court filing submitted earlier Monday, arguing that it was “likely to be embarrassing or detrimental to the client.” The attorneys further argued the court should respect the third client’s request not to be identified in a letter to Wood.

“The third legal client directed Mr. Cohen to not to reveal their identity publicly,” Cohen’s lawyers wrote. “As to the one unnamed legal client, we do not believe that Mr. Cohen should be asked to reveal the name or can permissibly do so,” they added.

https://www.nationalreview.com/news/sea ... rd-client/

But Hannity now claims he is/was not a client:

Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter.  I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees.  I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective.

In response to some wild speculation, let me make clear that I did not ask Michael Cohen to bring this proceeding on my behalf, I have no personal interest in this proceeding, and, in fact, asked that my de minimis discussions with Michael Cohen,  which dealt almost exclusively about real estate, not be made a part of this proceeding.

I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party.

Which, of course, puts into question any confidentiality claims that Hannity may make.

And because I'm an avid follower of interesting side stories - last Friday, at the same time that Judge Wood was expressing her annoyance to Cohen's lawyers about the fact that Cohen did not personally appear, Cohen was holding court on Park Avenue with an interesting cast of supporting actors:

Jerry Rotonda, a Deutsche Bank executive

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/201 ... reats-1998

Rotem Rosen was also in attendance (note:  the following story was published a year ago):

I missed this post.  And that's the first time I've seen a pic of him, lol.  He was a brief story and I haven't seen or read anything that either proves or disproves his claims and I'm somewhat skeptical about the fact that there may be another Trump spawn walking the earth that has been kept secret (though in light of recent revelations about Cohen, I reserve the right to amend that statement) so for that reason, I left him off the list.  :-))   Like I said, I long ago stopped trying to figure out what is going to happen next.

A Republican candidate for the Massachusetts House says he won’t apologize after attacking a student survivor of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting, calling David Hogg a “communist pig.”
Ron Beaty has been tweeting about Hogg, who has become an outspoken gun control advocate after a gunman killed 17 people inside his high school in February. The county commissioner in Barnstable, Mass., has also called the teenager “an absolute idiot,” “a two bit punk” and a “self-promoting opportunistic rat” in the past week.

Ah - the 1950 is strong in this one!
This just makes him a typical Republican/NRA asshole.

This week my favorite political prognosticator
is Stormy's attorney and international race car driver,
Michael Avenatti !


-- The number of Trump non-disclosure agreements with women will reach double digits.
-- Trumps attorney, Michael Cohen, will be indicted and face possibly decades in prison.
-- Cohen will flip on the President.
-- DJT will not finish out his term.

“There’s no question that Michael Cohen knows where many, many bodies are buried,”
Avenatti said. “They’re going to turn him, and when they turn him, the president is going
to be in a very, very bad place. And I’m going to make a prediction now. I do not think the
president will serve out his term.”

As this plays out I am focusing more and more
on Pence. He scares me. I think he is at least as
dangerous as his leader (the earthly one).
