gzt: I would expect these dossier allegations to be credible simply because the dossier was written by an experienced ex-spy guy. Whoever paid for that got their money's worth in credible allegations. But credible is not the same as true and may be well crafted but untrue.

 

 

 

Well, the article linked to earlier starts with a careful explanation of what it means to write this kind of report. The dossier is a 'raw' report, which is to say, the author is reporting a true account of what he or she was told. It is not in and of itself necessarily correct. In other words, the author is telling you the truth, but someone may have lied to him.

 

The article then goes on to say that, as you said above, the report's author is highly experienced and very well regarded by the active intelligence community and furthermore, the FBI paid him money to do further investigation based on some of this report. Therefore it's safe to say that the FBI certainly believe that some of it is credible.

I know weather isn't climate, and September is the most active month for the Atlantic hurricane season.

I also feel schadenfreude: pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. This word is taken from German and literally means 'harm-joy.' It is the feeling of joy or pleasure when one sees another fail or suffer misfortune.

By the way, the hurricane is about the width of Wellington to Kaitaia, around 960 KM.

So Florida, the land of a lot of climate deniers, is going to feel it.

Trump should stand outside in the middle of his winter house to test if global warming is real or not. More fake news I expect!

You can bet Lil' Kim in North Korea will be about to pop the champagne corks as Irma hits Florida.

From Forbes (very pro-business, conservative magazine)

"Rush Limbaugh, Fake News, and Hurricane Irma"
https://www.forbes.com/sites/chrisladd/2017/09/09/rush-limbaugh-fake-news-and-hurricane-irma/#58e027892883
by Chris Ladd, Contributor
A recovering Republican

"Rush Limbaugh is safe. After telling his listeners that the warnings about Hurricane Irma were a scam to promote a climate change 'agenda' and boost bottled water sales, he quietly scurried away to higher ground. Apparently, climate change is a liberal hoax so potent that not even Limbaugh could escape its reach.

From record-breaking triple-digit heat in San Francisco to wildfires in Greenland, this is the summer when climate change has started to move into the realm of everyday experience. As a political strategy, climate denial was always a suicide pact, but no one expected the pills to start working so quickly. Against all professional advice, Republicans bet the future of their party on their hope that climate change would be slow to become evident and mild in its impact. Having invested so much energy and capital in a massive machine of delusion and misinformation, there may be no way out. Rush Limbaugh can find a safe place to ride out the storm, but the Party of [B]Trump[B] has no clear avenue of escape.

Limbaugh’s Florida studio may stand vacant, but it still has a story to tell. For those fortunate enough to be unfamiliar with Limbaugh, here’s a little background. He is an entertainer who has built a fabulously lucrative career by confirming your bigoted uncle’s political delusions. Limbaugh got his start taking over Morton Downey Jr’s radio show in Sacramento in 1984. From that skeevy beginning he became a pioneer, blazing a trail for a generation of bigot-whisperers like Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin and the entire Fox News cavalcade

Your God loves you so much and yet punishes you for the sin of others?

Give me a break. You should pray harder. Sending prayers and thoughts to you.

I had second thoughts about posting this article, because I have zero interest in sports, and sports TV anchors are, in my opinion, only a bit better than shock radio DJ's.

However as always, Trump and team cannot let any criticism pass without comment, I thought it was worth posting.

"If ESPN Wants to Discipline Jemele Hill, She Might Have Law on Her Side"

"Two days after the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that tweets by an ESPN host disparaging President Trump were a 'fireable offense,' she added on Friday that the network 'should hold anchors to a fair and consistent standard.'"
