Dairy farmers to Trump: We need more subsidies

Dairy farmers sent Donald Trump a letter telling him that the subsidies he gave them are not enough to make up for the money they have lost as a result of the trade war:

The dairy industry has been particularly critical of the program and, in a letter to Mr. Perdue, asked the administration to rethink how it calculates subsidies and to make them more generous to dairy farmers. The milk federation expects dairy farmers to lose $1.5 billion from the tariffs in the second half of this year and it has received only $127 million in aid.


Maybe farmers should start voting for Democrats.

About the "new blood" argument against Pelosi

It is not a bad thing to use this argument, as long as the person using it doesn't endorse a man in his 70's in the 2020 presidential primaries.

Guess what the #1 hashtag is on Twitter?

As I type this:


#CrookedIvanka at #16 and advancing.

Trump caught lying about rally crowd sizes again

In Cleveland:
In Cleveland, Trump claimed “thousands” of people outside because the venue was packed. But Twitter users at the event posted evidence that Trump didn’t fill the venue


In Tampa:
In Tampa, Trump claimed thousands of people who couldn’t get in were watching outside on a “tremendous movie screen” — that didn’t exist.


And more in this new Washington Post piece:
"President Trump’s crowd-size estimates: Increasingly unbelievable"

WaPo to Trump: The CIA (Not William McRaven) was in charge of finding Bin Laden

More embarrassment for the stupid Donald Trump, who suggested that Navy SEAL McRaven should have found Bin Laden sooner. But McRaven was in charge of smoking (not finding) Bin Laden.

Former CIA deputy director Michael Morrell pointed out on Twitter that McRaven’s forces had nothing to do with locating bin Laden. Morrell said it was the CIA that did the “finding” and McRaven’s forces that did the “getting,” moving out within days of receiving the order.

WaPo: Congress must punish Saudi Prince because Trump is protecting him

The Washington Post has a new editorial calling on Congress to pass legislation to sanction Mohammed bin Salman, because Trump is helping the latter get away with murder (literally).

Mr. Corker is giving Mr. Trump a chance to tell the truth about Mohammed bin Salman and adjust his policies accordingly, a correction that is essential to a rational and workable U.S. strategy in the Middle East. If the White House instead continues to abet the crown prince in his lies, Congress must act — swiftly and decisively.

LAPD says Avenatti was charged. Avenatti says he wasn't

One of these two is lying:

Jacob Wohl says he was joking about being behind Avenatti accusation

I think Wohl thinks he's in trouble.
Wohl backtracked on his previous tweet in which he claimed “Surefire Intelligence strikes again,” in regards to news that Avenatti had been arrested.

“Just to be in jest, not anything serious,” Wohl told us after we asked him why he tweeted such a comment. “Just in jest, yeah… sarcastic remark… joke,” he continued.

CIA concludes Saudi crown prince ordered Jamal Khashoggi's assassination

Source: Washington Post

The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul last month, contradicting the Saudi government’s claims that he was not involved in the killing, according to people familiar with the matter.
The CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally.

A team of 15 Saudi agents flew to Istanbul on government aircraft in October and killed Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate, where he had come to pick up documents that he needed for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman.
