Good, Bad, and Indifferent: QPR for 2Q


Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website

    This is very good of you, not to mention bold. Most pundits (and that is what we are) do everything they can to forget what came before when they are wrong. So, hats off to you!

    I do disagree with you on Meuller thought, that was a massive exercise in phoning-it-in and dragging-it-out. It was like my high school years all over again. But, hey, we can’t all agree with each other, now can we.Report

    Gillibrand has a potential skeleton in her closet, in that her dad was paid $25,000 a month for consulting by Keith Raniere, the founder of the infamous NXIVM sex cult. Her dad eventually sued the founder and got a $100,000 settlement. She apparently showed up at some events, and her dad got her step-mom accepted as a member. She even accepted money from NXIVM’s operation’s director, Clare Bronfman, who plead guilty to conspiracy to conceal and harbor illegal aliens for financial gain and some other crimes. Bronfman was released on a $100 million dollar bond, then sentenced to about two years in prison and fined $6 million dollars.

    Now, whatever her level of involvement or lack thereof, as she denies knowing anything about the sex cult that her parents were members of and worked for, there’s not much hard information other than all the court documents flying back and forth.

    But no sane political strategist would ever want to hand the nomination to someone whose past might drag a Presidential campaign within ten miles of discussing sex cults and the whys and wherefores of having illegal-alien teen sex slave locked in a room for two years. So all the smart money and big endorsements would wisely run away, far far away.Report

    Good4: The 14 dimensional chess people are saying that this was intended to be a punch against, you guessed it, Hillary Clinton because of the foreign interference that was the Steele Dossier.

    The set-up is to get people to say “someone who suborns foreign interference needs to be locked up!” and then you counter with “like Clinton?” and talk about the Steele Dossier and watch them immediately either scream NO NOT LIKE THAT YOU FREAKING TROLL!!! or immediately change gears and get all “well, you have to understand that this issue is complicated…”.

    Not that there’s any reason to believe that Trump is capable of playing chess at that level.Report
