  1. Can we talk about HRC for a moment? (Might be off topic, but in the news… I’ll defer to J$ on that)

    I’m starting to feel like the Republicans might be shooting themselves in the foot again. In 2008, that did such a good job and were so prepared to sink Hillary, that they helped bring on Obama. Now, it looks like they might be doing the same thing again. If HRC goes down over the email scandal, who’s next? Are they really prepared to take on Bernie or Biden?

    Or am I being too pessimistic?

    • Uh, since when is the FBI or DOJ under the control of Repubs? These agencies are headed by Obama chosen people. The IGs investigating this are Obama nominated. When you find 2 emails out of a sample of 40 think how many you could find in a scrubbed sample of 30,000.

      You want to know who is to blame? My opinion:Valerie Jarrett. There’s been bad blood from the beginning and there continues to be. I think O and gang think HRC will not be sufficiently lefty to continue the course he has set and they really, really want someone else to step forward. Maybe Warren?

      O and gang have ticked off Schumer enough that he is now making phone calls to other Dems about the Iran deal. From here forward everything has do with O legacy and how he bests sees it moving forward.

      My humble opinion.

      • That’s a fair point.

        As for Chuck, I wouldn’t trust him to hold my place in line, so I’ll wait and see how the deal plays out before I give him much credit.

      • Schumer should be ticked off. Josh Earnest basically said this could cost him the expected job of minority leader.

      • Schumer is my Senator. I emailed him telling him I applaud him for his decision to not support the deal with Iran. I stated that I hoped it was a principled decision and not because his yes vote wasn’t needed and that he needed to speak out against the slur that those against the deal were in league with those who would wish death to America.

      • Or, hopefully, nor will they elect a fraud (Warren). Were she to run, she would be dogged by indian protesters. Real indians, not lying wannabes like her.

        • I think it’s still Clinton. They are slippery as eels given a press not completely hostel to them.

    • Slipping into cable news –
      Kelly broke a new angle on the Clinton email story. Very thin attribution, but could be “sensational.”

        • I had just linked and read that from Drudge.

          It leaves me speechless that anyone with such a high ranking position….no matter how brilliant…could consider themselves capable of managing the potential of receiving such material on a private server.

          No one could do that safely. No one.

          I don’t want to see anyone go to jail, and I don’t want to assume anyone guilty of something that could send them to jail, but she ought to be severely reprimanded and severely fined.

          • She would care less about a “severe repremand.” Mishandling classified material, especially at that level, is a crime calling for criminal charges and, if convicted, prison time.

          • If the material on Clinton’s private server is as described, Top Secret Signal Intelligence obtained from a Keyhole satellite, there is no way an intelligence agency transmitted the information via email, even on a government email server. It would be transmitted over a secure, encrypted communication system and the top and bottom of every page would be clearly marked with the appropriate classification. Not only would the material contain highly classified intelligence, it would also reveal sources and methods. Huge No-No.
            If the material on Clinton’s server is unmarked, the classification markings had to be purposely eliminated from the material or left off a summary or talking points.

          • I understand. I’m just referencing all the ‘ifs’.

            I’m saying whether the above is true or not, she should be reprimanded and fined for trying to juggle ANY work related email through a private server in the first place.

          • It’s a simple case of entitlement. The rules don’t apply to the Clintons. They actually believe that who they are gives them immunity. After all, their intentions are noble.

  2. Concha is correct that one of Megyn Kelly’s strengths is her spontaneity. She can also speak volumes with one look at the camera.

    My husband and I have gone into stitches when she’s conveyed precisely what we were thinking during a match with O’Reilly.

    USA network announced that Donny!, a new half-hour satirical comedy starring Donny Deutsch as a single dad and TV advertising personality, will premiere on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 10:30/9:30c.

    1 A different take on Ailes’s call to Trump.

  5. ICN2.0, Spud spells out why he thinks Gabe Sherman’s latest work about the Ailes-Trump phone call is bunk. Stelter info pretty much puts him in the TeamConcha camp. I think Sherman’s star has pretty much flamed out even among those willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

  6. It was announced today that Jimmy Carter has liver cancer. Regardless of what you think about him, let us all just say a little prayer.
