peak spock speaks

Aspiring novelist Ben Rhodes created narratives for the Obama administration. In a NYT story he once took credit for creating a media echo chamber to push the president’s Iran nuclear deal. But on election night 2016 Rhodes found himself at a loss for words.

Peak Spock Speaks

Now he’s written a book. It’s titled “The World as It Is.” Or “Peak Spock” as Maureen Dowd calls it.

In the book President Obama consoles despondent young Ben by telling him, “There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand on the earth.”

Back on earth Obama says, “Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early.”

To which Matthew Continetti asks, “What was he early for?,” “Fundamentally transforming America?” “The moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow”?

Nope. According to Ms. Dowd, “We just weren’t ready for his amazing awesomeness.”

Ben Rhodes now works for MSNBC. His brother, David Rose, is president of CBS News.

Thank You For Spying

spying

Eric Holder’s Justice Department threatened Fox News Reporter James Rosen as a co-conspirator under the espionage act. Except Holder never really intended to charge Rosen. It was all a pretext to spy on his phone calls and emails to find out who in the government was leaking information to him.

The Obama administration also spied on the phone records of Associated Press journalists.

More Spying

And of course they lied about spying on us too.

This week Joy Behar, of all people, outed James Clapper for spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper claimed Trump should be happy about this because his agent was really spying on Russians.

The Washington Post and New York Times find this explanation perfectly reasonable.

Michael Cohen Swamp Fox

Looks like Michael Cohen could afford to pay Stormy Daniels $130,000. Though, based on past behavior, I wonder if he first tried to sell her access to the president for a future “encounter.”

Swamp Fox

According to The Hill he tried to hit up the Qatari government for a cool million in exchange for access. Also on Cohen’s client access list were Novartis and ATT.

It’s the way of the swamp. But not illegal.

Mueller’s Boundaries

The Daily Caller thinks this could be a nightmare for Mueller.

Or not so much says Judge Napolitano.

Bumbling Boy Scout Comey Elects Trump

Here’s Holman Jenkins in his Business World WSJ column:

That Mr. Comey helped elect Mr. Trump makes it especially ironic that his early publicity tour has been so much devoted to bad-mouthing Mr. Trump’s character. Mr. Trump’s flaws are old news—he’s been bad-mouthed for decades by writers more knowledgeable and insightful than Mr. Comey. Millions of voters preferred him to the establishment alternatives anyway. This is the real news that continues to stick in the craw of Mr. Comey and many others.

Bumbling Boy Scout Comey

Jenkins goes on to add, “Putin is right about one thing: Washington has gone insane.”

Comey’s Response

comet's responseThe Devin Nunes memo released last Friday described an FBI application to the FISA court. The FBI was seeking permission to spy on Carter Page, a low level Trump advisor with Russian contacts. The application included the infamous Christoper Steele Trump dossier.

That would be the same dossier that former FBI Director Comey said contained “salacious and unverified” information. Not only that, the Clinton campaign funded the thing and possibly contributed information to it.

Comey’s response when he read the memo – That’s it?
