Bonus: The crisis was only avoided because she randomly decided to attend a White House briefing -- which she'd been skipping for some time before that because the White House is a COVID hotspot thanks to Trump's mismanagement of that crisis.

This is the guy that the My Pillow crackhead things should be named acting director as part of the Trump coup, right?

Also, keep in mind that Haspel is an inhuman monster who LOVES torture, and this asshole was a bridge too far for even her.

Rhymes With Silver: from the My Treason guy


Most encouraging paragraph in that report:

"Asked if there was any way Trump would make such a high-profile change with just a few days left, one senior administration official said, "Frankly, he's running out of people who'd even know how to implement those changes. There's no one to do the paperwork, which is pretty complicated for unorthodox personnel moves."

Yeah.  These are the morons who have been running the country for the last few years.

I think he's Rudy's mouthpiece. That way, whatever Rudy is pumping into Trump can come from two different sources.

The revelation stunned national security officials and almost blew up the leadership of the world's most powerful spy agency.

Is it, though?

Would you rather leave it to Trump?  That's how you end up with "I'm Eric" running it and he'd probably invite the Russians over to review the CIA's security and see if it's up to par.

Good  thing that someone who was the chief of a CIA black site in Thailand where prisoners were tortured for information decided to stay on as CIA Director. Saying she "almost resigned" now that Trump's presidency is over is a real Profiles in Courage moment.

Reasonable people can disagree about this - and surely will - but I find it exceedingly unlikely that the notes Mr. TreasonPillow had in hand sprung from his crack-addled brain. The Club For Growth is still a thing. Richard Uihline exists. Peter Thiel is still wandering around free and unhanged. And of course Steve Biosphere and Misha Flynn - one of whom remains surprisingly unpardoned - still seek the remaking of the United States along more amenable nacht und nebel lines.

I hasten to add these are just a few who we know about and who I could think of in the middle of the night. There are clearly other, grimmer forces in play. No one seems to know where Steven Miller is, for example. And those notes, what we can see of them anyway, read in a curiously stilted manner.

Almost as if they weren't originally written in English.

This is where you can see that Trump knew he lost and wanted to screw up as much as possible on his way out the door.

Oh, believe me, this crazy asshole Patel is far, far worse than her.

He would use the full power of the CIA to keep Trump in power.  He would make it Trump's Gestapo.

So... when's she gonna be available for bdsm sessions? Asking for a friend....

I hope, and assume, Biden has a hundred+ firings already written up and replacement's good to go ready to be robosigned and sent out on Jan 20 at 12:01 for folks like Kash, the folks Trump put in charge of the DoD right after he lost the election and all the other major and minor players in this bullshiat.

I think it's sad that a CIA Director has to consider stooping to resignation. Doesn't she have access to professional, highly skilled, killers on her staff? She should have a "Huck" on her staff somewhere.

When the beating of their hearts,
Explodes like the ass gas from their bum,
The insurrection will be over before its begun!

When they give all they can give so that the MAGA can advance,
Some will fark a-round and find out,
FBI and DOJ now step up coz here's your chance.
The tears of the Magats will water the souls of Pelosis plants!

That looks like the picture that would be in the background of a YouTube true crime video where they're talking about how he murdered and then cooked and ate an entire family.

This doesn't get as much attention as it warrants. There has been a parade of monsters and arschlöcher in positions of power, and that bargain bin wannabe dictator was too much for them to tolerate.  We talk a lot about the turnover and make jokes about Scaramucci as a unit of time, but the *kind* of people he scares off makes it nightmarish.

The incompetence, treason, and bald-faced lies are all expected, but you know what really gets me about this?

These people can never quite figure out the point of cover sheets and plain manila envelopes.

Like they can't grasp very basic, grade school don't-cheat-off-my-test levels of OPSEC.
