How about THIS alternative angle on that Cohen photo? Updated with another thought.

 

Wow, I didn’t expect quite the response I got to the article this morning about the above photo, and have eagerly devoured the comments. One of the prevalent themes in the comments, now that we know who more of the “basket of deplorables” that are seated around him like covered wagons during an Indian raid are, was that Cohen was getting a “warning,” and his instructions from his Russian overlords. There were also sever comments indicating that the picture appears to have been “staged” for effect. Makes perfect sense, until it doesn’t. What if that picture, and the event it captured, was indeed a very public warning, just not to Cohen?

Look, just hear me out for a minute here, then we’ll natter about it in the comments. Right now Michael Cohen is radioactive, right? Anybody seen in public with him is going to be examined by the FBI right down to the fungus under their toenails. Why in the ever loving hell would any of them, much less all of them, suddenly sit down in a public place with him, knowing that he’s not only under observation by the FBI, but surrounded 24/7 by media and reporters? Mikey “The Mook” obviously knows who these people are, and what they sound like. Pick up a phone, send a text, have a hand delivered note dropped off at the bell desk to be brought up to his room fer Crissakes! There are a hundred quieter, more private ways they could have gotten their message across to Cohen. Why make a public spectacle out of this, especially on a weekend when the media can hone in on it?

How about this. Lately, El Presidente Pendejo has been going through the political version of puberty where Vladimir Putin and Russia are concerned. Yeah, his voice still cracks a lot, but it’s getting a little deeper all the same, and the peach fuzz in the dark places is filling in nicely. Letting Steve Munchkin Mnuchin announce some sanctions with actual teeth to them, including targeting the kid of an oligarch that Putin was using to get around sanctions once his Daddums got slapped with them. Publicly ridiculing Putin by directly linking him with “the Animal Assad,” and holding him equally responsible for the chemical attack. Taunting Putin about his threat to knock the US missiles out of the sky, referencing the futility of Putin launching the missile equivalents of GMC Hornets to chase his 2018 Porsche’s around the sky? Personally, I think this has been a case of Trump slapping in frustration at the bright, shiny Putin object in his frustration over the Russia and Stormy Daniels debacles, but don’t ever think for one minute that Vladimir Putin doesn’t have the same rapacious ego that Donald Trump does.

So, what if in fact this was the warning that was being sent in that meeting, and it wasn’t directed at Cohen at all, but Twiddledumber instead? What if it was Putin’s way of slyly saying, “Watch your fucking mouth droogie! Remember who the real boss is here. Keep it up, and maybe I’ll have my boy Oleg over here make an appointment with your secretary for an Oval Office meeting. Or maybe, the next time Natalia Veselnitskiya is in town, she might just pop in to say ‘Hi!’ to Robert Mueller, and ask if there’s anything she can help him with. Who do you think you’re dealing with here, Mitch McConnell? Five little words comrade, ‘video tapes,’ and ‘Trump Tower Moscow.’ Be careful little man.”

It’s just a thought, and I could easily be just as wrong about this as I am about so much other shit. But you gotta admit, when you look at how ridiculous the idea is that they had to make such a public display to get the word to Michael Cohen, it’s a perfectly logical alternative.

*Update*

This just came to me…It has been reported that one of the meeting participants was a high mucky muck with Deutsche Bank…Say WHA?!? What does a third rate shitkicker like Michael Cohen have to do with Deutsche Bank??? Cohen is the Barney Fife of the legal profession, with just about as much clout, what does Deutsche Bank care about him??? I’ll tell you who they DO care about, a helluva lot, their largest personal borrower, and Cohen’s sole cash cow client, Donald Trump…What it Trump’s call to Cohen was pre timed, or if it was actually Cohen who called Trump, with some very specific instructions??? All I’m saying is that it’s starting to appear that there was a lot more to this meeting than we’ve been seeing on the surface…

Dozens of mothers rally around Kavanaugh accuser’s home in a show of support

Democracy Now! / YouTube

As questions swirl around Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and how truly awful a person he has possibly always been, the conservative forces in our culture are working relentlessly to discredit Professor Christine B. Ford. Ford has accused Kavanaugh of attempting to sexually assault her back in high school, and Republican officials continue to expose themselves for the sorry misogynists that they are, with right-wing media misinforming the public at every turn. Even our sexual assaulter in chief’s children have gotten into the game of slut-shaming, and of spewing deep-state conspiracy-theory rhetoric that incites their minions to threaten Christine Ford’s life.

A group of over thirty women and a handful of men convened at Ford’s home in Palo Alto in a show of support on Thursday. The Mercury News reports that the supporters chanted “We believe Christine. Her story is our story!”

“I’m here today for all of my friends who are too retraumatized to come, who say ‘I can’t go through this again,”” said Jill Rege, who lives in Palo Alto. “They can barely get out of bed because it puts them right back where they were 25 or 30 years ago. They hid, they shoved it down, but they all remember.”

We believe Christine.

If this allegation is true (along with others) than it is apparent that Trump supporters oppose abortion except in cases where the fetus is an inconvenience to the father.

Raw Story

“According to a court filing, President Donald Trump’s former aide Jason Miller allegedly gave a pregnant stripper an abortion pill without her knowledge.

The court document obtained by Splinter News was filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. The stripper’s name was not identified and the report referred to her as Jane Doe.

After engaging in a sexual relationship with Jane Doe, Miller discovered she was pregnant. He then “Unbeknownst to Jane Doe, [gave her a] smoothie  [that] contained an abortion pill.”

The pill had traumatic effects on Jane Doe. “The pill-induced an abortion and Jane Doe wound up in a hospital emergency room, bleeding heavily and nearly went into a coma. The unborn child died,” the report stated.”

Fortunately, the male involved suffered no consequences. /s

Yet.

Trump Offends Poland This Week By Disrespecting Polish President

Polish President Andrzej Duda visited the White House on Tuesday, and although he was pleased with the visit, many other polish citizens were left less than thrilled. In fact, Trump managed to offend the Poles so deeply that the fallout was all over Polish news sites on Wednesday morning.

At the end of the meeting between Duda and Trump, the two leaders signed a strategic partnership pact to boost defense, energy, trade and security ties.  The moment was captured in a photo that was…uh…awkward.

Polish radio correspondent Pawel Zuchowski commented, “It’s nice of President Trump that he moved a bit, because otherwise our president would have had to sign the document on his knees.”

International diplomacy scholar Janusz Sibora called the incident an “offense” in an interview with Gazeta, a polish news site, which also compared the meeting with Trump’s ceremonial signing of an agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un earlier this year, when both leaders sat at the same table.

“The message is clear: Americans do not respect Poles,” Sibora said. “If we sign such an important document in that way, we should ask ourselves whether this wasn’t detrimental to the honor of Poland.”

Pawel Zalewski, of the opposition liberal-conservative party wrote, “Signing a Polish-American declaration at the desk of the American president, while he is sitting, and [the Polish president] is standing is a symbolic confirmation [of] @AndrzejDuda as a customer [of] @realDonaldTrump. We have never been so low.”

Even Former President and Nobel Prize winner, Lech Walesa had a negative opinion of the encounter.  Walesa appeared to troll Duda on Facebook with a photo of Walesa sitting with Trump standing next to him.  “You find difference,” read the caption.

Znajdź różnice.You find difference.

Posted by Lech Wałęsa on Tuesday, September 18, 2018

There was no sign, however, that Duda himself was bothered by the photo. He rejected the criticism and posted a more pleasant view of the visit on Twitter, hailing it as a success.
