John Brennan, "Mastermind"

John Brennan's attempt at blowing up Trump's presidency looks to be about as successful as the pathetic scheme of Guy Fawkes. George Neumayer at The American Spectator covers Brennan's role in this farce in detail. I find it particularly hilarious that Brennan used a bogus tip from Estonia's intelligence agency to start the ball rolling. I wonder how that went?

The scene: John Brennan's bedroom, well past midnight.


"Psssst! John! Oh, Johhhhnnnnyyyy!"



"Z-z-z-z...*Cough!*...Ummm...Gus Hall, he's our man, if he can't do it, nobody can-n-n...Z-z-z-z..."



"Ach! Vat a kakker! Vake up, John! I haff news fur yew!"



"Huh? Wha...what's that? Who are you? How did you get in here?"



"I yam Estonian secret agent, at your service! Ve are ver' gewd at de late night sneakings."



"Gawrsh! An Estonian secret agent! So, Estonia...That's somewhere near the Bahamas, right?"



[Sotto voce: "Ach, sa oled idioot!"] "No, is Baltic Republic".



"Oh, so down around Serbia."



"Is BALTIC republic, not Balkan republic! Never mind. Listen. Yew haff great hatings for dis fellow Trump, yes?"



"Grrrrrr!"



"Gewd, gewd. I haff information dat yew can use against his presidential campaign. De Ruskis are giffing him much rubles. Yew take dat back to your FBI and tell, yes? Giff dis feller Trump much trouble."


"But how do I know this is true?"


"Yew haff vord of Estonian secret agent! Estonians never lie. Vell-known fact."


"But I don't even know your name or your position as an Estonian secret agent."


"Of course not! Vouldn't be a secret, denn, vould it?"


"Hmm. M'yes, you've got a point there. Thanks for the information. I'll get right on this."


"Jah, jah, yew do dat. You are needing anyt'ing else - more political secrets, birch firewood, dates vit' pretty Estonian girls whose favorite t'ings are including reindeer, herring sandwiches and taking de long valks on ice floes - ve are being glad to provide. Head aega, Johnny!"

The following morning...


"Ok, boss. The seed has been planted. The soil is not too deep, but there's plenty of fertilizer, so this idea looks like a winner."



"Excellent!"

Even MS-13 gang members know they're animals

"An MS-13 gang member nicknamed 'Animal' has been convicted and sentenced to prison for the murder of a 15-year-old boy in East Boston".

Hey, Nancy Pelosi, looks like the "divine spark" in this guy fizzled out.

Happy 6th!

Mrs. Paco and I went to Virginia Beach this past weekend to help granddaughter Maggie celebrate her 6th birthday. Here she is taking a whack at her cake with a knife, and scarfing down pizza with her friends.



Happy anniversary, Bob!

Bob Mueller's absurd investigation celebrated its one-year anniversary the other day.

You ought to at least get a cake, Bob.



Update: John Brennan weighs in on President Trump's call for an investigation of John Brennan and his gang, and Paco World News Daily (PWND) is there to capture the ex-CIA chief's reaction:


"Stop enabling the kakistocracy!"

The latest twist in gun control

Just refuse to honor credit card charges for services and products already sold.

Sunday funnies


From "The Week in Pictures" at Powerline

If the problem hadn't gotten fixed, the situation would have called for an unprecedented level of cooperation for the rest of their lives: "Wildlife officials rescue six squirrels with tails tangled together".

Bird version of dancing in the end zone.

I'm not sure this satirical piece is so far from becoming a likely outcome in the future: "Episcopal Priest Forced To Resign After Revealing He Believes In God".

Also from the Babylon Bee: "Bigoted Boy Scouts Welcome Girls But Still Exclude All 49,247 Other Genders".

Yeah, that sounds plausible: "Mutant Elephants with Woolly Mammoth DNA Might Save Us From Global Warming by Knocking Down Trees."

Happy Feet Friday

The Will/Bradley/Ray McKinley orchestra (McKinley on vocals) performs that sentimental ballad, "All That Meat, and No Potatoes".
