Over the years we’ve resided on 3 continents, 8 countries, 7 states (within the US), as well as over a dozen cities. We were once partners in a business in Kansas City.

Not once were any of those homes/offices located in a low lying area, much less a well known flood plain.

But, hey! That’s just us…

It still remains our considered opinion that The Sopranos (The Best TV Show of All Time 1), was a documentary.

Warren (Dog Rest Him) of course objected, claiming we suffered from an idée fixe. We so wish he was around to see la costra nostra’s takeover of the White House:

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Thursday that he doesn’t know if his relationship with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus can be repaired, and he urged Priebus to publicly prove that he has not leaked damaging information to the media.

“If you want to talk about the chief of staff, we have had odds, we have had differences. When I said we were brothers, from the podium, that’s because we’re rough on each other. Some brothers are like Cain and Abel, other brothers can fight with each other and then get along. I don’t know if this is repairable or not — that will be up to the president,” Scaramucci said in a phone interview with CNN early Thursday morning, referencing the biblical brothers without mentioning that Cain murdered Abel.

Sarah Isgur Flores, a spokeswoman for the Department of Justice, said in a statement late Wednesday night: “We have seen an astonishing increase in the number of leaks of classified national security information in recent months. We agree with Anthony that these staggering number of leaks are undermining the ability of our government to function and to protect this country.” Flores added that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom the president has repeatedly attacked this week, “will aggressively pursue leak cases wherever they may lead.”

Mooch had earlier tweeted “In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45” and then later deleted it. 2

The tweet popped up within minutes of Politico’s revelation that Mooch is still making millions off his old businesses.

If we were Priebus, we’d take a pass on any boat ride OMP/Mooch might invite him along on.

Goodbye and good riddance:

President Donald Trump has formally nominated Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback to serve as the State Department’s ambassador at large for international religious freedom.

Brownback has served as Kansas governor since 2011. His name has been in the mix for the post for weeks, before the White House announced his pick.

If confirmed, Brownback will serve effectively as the head of the Office of International Religious Freedom within the State Department. That office is charged with promoting religious freedom as a key objective of U.S. foreign policy, according to the State Department’s website. The office’s mission is to monitor “religious persecution and discrimination worldwide, recommend and implement policies in respective regions or countries, and develop programs to promote religious freedom.”

Browback seems an odd choice to promote religious freedom, seeing as how he’s more of a religious bigot. But, you know, fuck it – Brownbackistanis need a break.

Sadly, they’re unlikely to get one as Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, who shares many of lil’ Sammy’s stupid and e-vil beliefs, will step into Brownback’s soiled loafers.

And so it goes…
