This is the finest analysis of James Comey, “deep-water Swamp Denizen,” that I’ve seen. His corruption in detail by famed scifi author Jerry Pournelle (The Mote In God’s Eye). Including Comey’s jailing of Martha Stewart.
“James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.
“Begin by noticing how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical.
“Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance “tapes” from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.”
Read it all. You won’t be sorry you spent the time.

We could make an industry out of these silent vigils as the Manchester massacres increase. Or we could get our shit together, if only among ourselves and our tribes.
“If we are to prevent a new medievalism finding the right balance between an open society and maintaining loyalty and allegiance is necessary. It is a difficult task under any circumstances. But rarely has anyone failed more dismally at it than the leaders of our multi-culti world. By stigmatizing calls for reasonable loyalty as bigotry they have climbed out on a limb and sawed themselves off; by their dogmatic insistence on mindless inclusion they’ve foreclosed all attempts to bring things back to even keel. They have reduced themselves to the level of hapless bystanders, unable to either prevent or explain an onslaught they themselves — were they honest enough to admit it — should have foreseen.”
So while they cower behind their paid security, we need to get concealed carry licenses, factor in range time to our busy schedules and budgets and be ready to act.

Scott Adams has a good idea for replacing the White House press briefings, which have only turned into a sneer fest of gotcha games fueling fake news.
Take it to the Internet, he says, with written questions and answers, supplemented by occasional video clips, and let the public respond to the questions and answers, though some sort of refereeing and censorship would be necessary there.
I like this author of Dilbert, which is a funny strip, and I’ll probably get around to reading his anti-self help book as well.

Speaking of anniversaries, today’s the 90th one of Charles Lindbergh’s solo, nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean. My father was five and my mother was three.
Lindbergh always maintained that he wasn’t alone because his high-wing, single engine monoplane was more than a thing. “We,” he titled his best-seller on the trip.

That’s the conclusion of Breitbart’s Joel B. Pollack on the NYSlimes and the WaPo, who are piling on President Trump with almost daily criticism:
“In their effort to impugn Trump, the Times and the Post violate the most basic journalistic standards. Publishing parts of a document that you do not possess and cannot verify, and timing the release to cause maximum political damage (right after the president leaves the country), is not investigative journalism. It is political propaganda.”
And, Pollack might have added, their work is splashed across the front pages of innumerable Mediacrat newspapers across the country: Sheep who have always followed the NYSlimes and the Wapo, wagging their tails behind them.
“Saturday night (June 10 ) there was another meeting. The IDF had attacked from the [southern Golan Heights]. The Syrian army collapsed, said [Gen. Moshe] Dayan, and we had to take advantage of this. [Prime Minister Levi] Eshkol explained, rather lamely, that ‘Dayan told me,’ but he hadn’t stopped the advance because he was in favor of it. During the meeting, word arrived that the two IDF columns had met in the center of the Golan. The ministers stood for a moment of silence in honor of the fallen, then drank ‘l’chaim.’”
Good reading for history buffs, particularly Israeli history, in this first part of the “secret transcripts of the Six Day War” of the government security cabinet. In those days the pols didn’t run military operations.

UPDATE: The anniversary won’t be remembered fondly by all, and the achievement could be reversed, if anyone takes the pre-1967 lines as a starting point for peace negotiations seriously. The Israelis won’t.
