Valerie Plame Lies About Scooter Libby, Drives Camaro Backwards in New Campaign Ad

 


Democrat Valerie Plame released a very slickly produced but factually inaccurate video today in her bid for Congress in New Mexico’s open 3rd congressional district. In the video, Plame claims, “I was an undercover CIA operative… then Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff took revenge against my husband and leaked my identity. His Name? Scooter Libby. Guess who pardoned him last year?” A picture of President Trump is then displayed in the video.

Plame is lying. Scooter Libby did not leak her name. Richard Armitage, a deputy secretary of state under Colin Powell, leaked her name. This is not a theory. Armitage admitted that he leaked her name. This has been public knowledge since at least September 8, 2006, when the Washington Post published an article titled, “Armitage Says He Was Source of CIA Leak.”

Scooter Economy

 

Have you ever wondered about the scooter economy? No, not that Scooter. We are talking about the electric scooters, which have largely supplanted undocked bicycles. The undocked bicycles were, themselves, a leap forward from docked bicycles. All of these transportation modes attack the “last mile” problem, with increasing efficacy. “Docked,” undocked,” “last mile,” what is all this about? Read on and marvel, or at least gain a nice break room, coffee shop, or dinner table story.

The last mile problem:

In transportation of persons, as in transmission of data, the last mile is the toughest challenge, and limits the efficiency of the entire system. Think back to when cable and telecommunications companies were racing to bury many thousands of miles of cable in literal pipelines. The pipelines shielded and allowed maintenance on the wire and fiber optic cables forming data infrastructure “pipelines.”

The Swamp Strikes Back

 

Disgraced FBI chief James Comey’s tortured explanation of his bizarre official conduct before and after the 2016 election aptly reflects the murky atmosphere in The Swamp, where Comey has long resided.

In his televised interview by Clinton Democrat George Stephanopoulos Sunday night to promote his new book, Comey, the Beltway Nostradamus, sanctimoniously declared President Trump to be “morally unfit” for the office he holds.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that Scooter Libby, the chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, may soon be pardoned by President Trump and have his convictions from the Valerie Plame fiasco scrubbed from the record.  Jim and Greg don’t excuse Libby’s conduct in the investigation but point out there never should have been an investigation since there was no underlying crime.  They also roll their eyes as excerpts from James Comey’s new book slam Trump as being shorter than expected, wearing his ties too long and using tanning goggles, while Trump tweets that Comey is an “untruthful slimeball.”  And they react to Comey’s admission that he revealed the re-opening of the Hillary Clinton email probe because he was sure she would win the election anyway and might not have done so if he thought Trump could actually win.

Mueller Re-indicts Scooter Libby

 

Last Friday I stumbled into an ugly DC building on Pennsylvania Avenue in search of the IMC (International Mensa Convocation) where I was scheduled to speak.

After a lingering probe of each of my numerous body cavities, the comely security guardette directed me to check out a meeting room on the second floor where she said there were “a number of other odd-looking people” gathered.
