Say It Ain’t So, Joe

It has been reported that the president will pick his new FBI director.
Rumor is he will tap Joe Lieberman.
Joe Lieberman?
JOE FREAKIN’ LIEBERMAN?
He has to pick a fossilized old former democrat-turned-independent-stiff?
This is the best man for the job?
He backed McCain over the Magic Negro in 2008.
He switched party affiliation from democrat to independent, even though he caucused with the dems. He could get away with this because, like many politicos who spend decades in DC, their reelection is almost automatic. The democrats dislike him, the GOP elite love him.
I will always maintain THERE ARE NO MODERATE DEMOCRATS!
That was proven with the Obamacare votes. They all just come with different price tags.
I do not regret voting for Trump, he’s done some good things. But there are a lot of things he does that are simply head scratching. He is who he is and that will never change.

Trump ‘very close’ to picking new FBI chief, leaning toward Lieberman
Lieberman would be an unusual pick for the job — past FBI chiefs have either worked at the bureau or served as a federal judge or prosecutor. He was attorney general of Connecticut before being elected to the Senate in 1988.
The former Democratic vice presidential nominee currently works at the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres in New York – the same firm as Trump’s attorney Marc Kasowitz.

Senate Democrats say ‘hell no’ to Trump’s choice of Joe Lieberman for FBI Director
According to Politico, if Trump thought that Lieberman would be a choice welcomed by Democrats, he got it squarely wrong. Lieberman is not popular among his former Senate colleagues. From a series of policy defections on key issues to Lieberman’s decision to run as an independent in Connecticut after he lost the Democratic primary to challenger Ned Lamont in 2006, the former senator made many enemies among his own caucus.
Furthermore, critics of Trump’s decision stress that the role of FBI director should be filled by someone who isn’t a politician. Lieberman was Al Gore’s vice presidential running mate in 2000 and ran for president himself in 2004.

McCain To Democrats Criticizing Lieberman Over FBI Position: He Has More Experience Than All My Dem Colleagues, So Screw Them
In 2008, there were rumors circulating that Lieberman could be picked as McCain’s running mate. McCain reportedly wanted to make that happen. It didn’t, though Lieberman did address the Republican National Convention that year. He also endorsed McCain for president, which caused his Democratic colleagues, with whom he caucused with, some heartburn.

The Final Confrontation

Cardinal Wojtyla

During his visit to America in 1976, Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, the archbishop of Cracow who two years later would become Pope John Paul II, delivered this prophetic message in Philadelphia:

We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel.

We must be prepared to undergo great trials in the not-too-distant future, trials that will require us to be ready to give up even our lives.

Through your prayers and mine, it is possible to alleviate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it.

Take a chill pill, Anti-Trumpers

2017_05 19 Outrage du jour by Terrell

The following is from Catholic Vote:

The facts at present are plain: ongoing investigations by Congress and the FBI have yet to uncover any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. And those responsible for pursuing the truth have repeatedly affirmed that their investigations continue, unencumbered, as they should.

The appointment of Robert Mueller now allows a widely respected former FBI Director to carry out a fair and responsible investigation without the hysterics we’ve seen the past few days. If there is evidence of criminal activity, obstruction of justice, or collusion with Russia, then the facts will eventually emerge — and appropriate action should be taken.

Until then … we must resist calls to bring the government to a halt over speculation and anonymous leaks. Talk of impeachment at this juncture is simply reckless. The public deserves facts, not partisan hit jobs.

Ferocious Kitties

Breakfast with my beloved uncles this morning, one of the few things I look forward to every week. I’ll likely post when I return. For now, I found this in the UK Telegraph Online. Proud owners sent in photos of their cute but oh-so-ferocious kittens. Just a little fun ahead of weekend-long rainstorms.

They’ve got cat-itude! Pet owners share hilarious photos of their tiny but ferocious kittens
Kittens can be soft and cuddly but they definitely aren’t always very cute
These pictures, compiled by Bored Panda, show kittens with a bad attitude
The furry felines snarl their teeth, stare out the camera and throw a tantrum
