#5344: This isn't really surprising

So, did you hear that FBI director James "I let Hillary off" Comey is a Clinton crony? Coulda knocked me over with a feather, I'm telling you!

Just read the first few paragraphs. It looks like a laundry list of corruption and graft. And this is the director of the FBI.
Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel.

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.
Must be awfully nice.

"Why can't we just drone this guy?" Hillary Clinton, about Julian Assange. He's done nothing deserving of the death penalty (at least not in the US) but has only inconvenienced and embarassed some politicians. Hillary wanted him dead for that.

Yeah, that's presidential material.

All the questions asked of a Democrat at any "town hall" are vetted well in advance. No Democrat ever goes to a town hall meeting and takes questions which are actually random. This way the Democrat can have answers carefully formulated beforehand.

Using a child actor is just another step along that trajectory.

One man with a decent rifle can knock out power over a very large area. He just needs to know what part of the transformer to shoot. Good luck preventing that.

Last year's budget deficit was $1,423 billion dollars. Biggest ever! It's change we can believe in! It's a fundamental transformation!

Media is strangely silent on this point. Completely incurious about where all that money is going and why the budget deficit is so high. Remember 2008's record deficit of $455 billion? How the press was all over George Bush for that? This deficit is more than three times bigger than that, but Democrat in the White House so they're all, "What deficit? Huh? Well, it's because Trump isn't paying taxes!"

Someone stole his Trump yard signs, so he got bigger signs. Good luck stealing that fence, fuckheads!

Only if Boeing buys SpaceX, me bucko. "First person on Mars. I'm convinced that the first person to step foot on Mars will arrive there riding on a Boeing rocket," sez Boeing CEO. Which is not impossible, of course, but it'd be a crying shame.

Spiffy. Galaxy Note 7--a new one, supposedly non-splody type--blew up. No word yet on whether the phone was damaged prior to its meltdown, but lithium ion batteries are very power-dense and prone to spontaneous combustion if damaged. Whee!

And, dinnertime.
