Picking up where we left off last time on Trump Trucks of Glory: Trumpformers:

From this (WaPo's) post's article:

    “This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance,” Page said in an interview Tuesday. “I have nothing to hide.” He compared surveillance of him to the eavesdropping that the FBI and Justice Department conducted against civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

No need to touch that last sentence.

I think it's strange that these proceedings are being "spun" as an entire espionage branch(es!) institutionally reaching a consensus in a conspiratorial manner. Have there been any credible (or even "anonymous officials"?) whistle-blowers coming forward alleging that Obama's embedded regime has seized the reigns of power, providing specific examples? The argument surrounding Susan Rice bears mention here, then. Never once have I seen anyone attempting to splice together a sequence of events that progresses from "ordering and/or obtaining surveillance" to "widely distributing it improperly" and explains how no one gave a fuck. Besides, wouldn't FBI/CIA/NSA have some measures in place combating one political party from overwhelming the other? Surely there's a clever way to test your demographics but preserve everyone's privacy, etc.

I'd like to go on the record as vocally against excusing anyone on the basis of the "D" or "R" next to their name, scout's honor. We could have more resources allocated to investigate the allegations surrounding people like Susan Rice, but the Trump administration is shifting focus away from white collar crime [WARNING: autoplay w/ sound]. I thought we had statistically established that these overly-aggressive stances towards low level crime didn't work. Am I smoking dope? ..Is it good dope?

From the text of the link above, when we're building up Sessions,

    Fredericksen [former federal prosecutor and white-collar criminal defense partner at Foley & Lardner LLP] believes the DOJ under Sessions has “an appreciation for the deterrent value of prosecuting white collar crime and a willingness to use prosecutions to send a message of compliance.”

1. Big words 2. Appeal to Authority 3. List 'dem creds:

    Sessions, who served as a Republican senator before being confirmed to his current post, has 16 years of experience as a prosecutor in Alabama at both the federal and state level under his belt.

Alabama in the news today.

So, we have a government problem. We also have a press problem, as the two are now increasingly coupled in our two-party choke hold. Speaking of which (I just can't resist logging this here in my little diary of pathological misery):

Still, I would listen to Spicer talk about his skincare and hair treatment regime, but that's about it. Maybe I'll trade him fitness tips over a gluten-free manicure.

Anyway, that's some random sampling to build a small snapshot of one day in the life of a Trump'd 'Merica. Fuck your shit, bitches, mine's all fucked already. Please, anyone, step in here and destroy me on this post, I'm not a sensitive person. You probably got that already.

A little more digging and the name Louise Mensch appears. She reportedly broke the Carter Page FISA story months ago, and the link is to a story regarding an entirely separate FISA order for an investigation into the "strange handshake" recorded between a Trump server and Russian bank server.

I guess her track record is now the one to beat. She was on Bill Maher a couple of weeks ago saying that things are really about to come to a head in the Russia probe. That was before the retaliation against Syria and sending warships to North Korea. Wonder what's next.

I tried checking out her twitter, but when somebody blows up, Twitter is fucking useless. You know, like, the exact opposite of how you'd want something to work. But I think she's actually the one in control of the content, so, I.. I give up.
