Jeff Sessions is running for his old Senate seat. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if President Trump endorses him.

I wonder what has happened to the Washington Examiner. The President has every right to dismiss an ambassador and appoint one that he prefers.

Well said!

Maybe they should be investigating and explaining why they killed a story as important as the one about Epstein and his friends …

Good for him. Even Fox News decided that they can’t release the name of the whistleblower. Of course they can, and should. If President Trump does it, he will be accused of witness intimidation.

Mark Meadows confronts media liar.

Good.

Is this true? I didn’t think that a judge is the one who decides who will serve on the jury. Anybody know?

Just a reminder. January 20, 2017. Inauguration day.

President Trump, keep up the good work!

Here’s to a good friend who lives in the neighborhood. Lucky you!

Interesting.

Charlie’s prayer.

Have a great day! Recognizing weather in my neighborhood:

    Bottom line is that ambassadors are political appointments at the behest and pleasure of the President. Except in those areas where particularly skilled bodies must fill a seat (e.g. Russia during the Cold War) we generally have some knowledgeable people in the slots but in the main they’re big contributors or some other drone the POTUS (or an important advisor) owes a favor to. Most of them don’t even speak the language of whatever country they’re assigned to.

    State isn’t usually happy with the ambassadors, they put up with them as necessary evils, they’re skin-poppers thrashing about in the pens of professional diplomats and diplomatic hangers-on dips. The State, DoD, CIA and other parasitic agencies insinuated into the flesh of the embassies usually work around them, they realize they’re a temporary distraction, and mostly the ambassadors don’t bother with the full time staff.

    It’s not unusual for a president to leave some ambassadors from a previous administration in place as he sets up a new government,especially in those less important nations and especially especially in those bottom tier nations no one particularly wants to serve in. I mean, I don’t see anyone beating down the doors to be ambassador to Lesotho, Kyrgyzstan or the Congo. It looks as if the Obama holdover was on an agenda of her own, not Trump’s, and one wonders if, considering the Ukraine’s economic and strategic importance, Obama and his krewe had plans that went beyond the end of the POtuS’s reign.

    Remember Shirley Temple Black in Czechoslovakia? One ambassador rarity that did well.
    Most U.S. ambassadors cause more trouble than they are worth.
    But that yanowitch lady – what a piece of work. When did spying on American TV opinion people become SOP for ambassadors?
