    Either Flynn is trolling, or not that fast off the mark. He is (or was) a 3 star general! He knows that error where facts are concerned to the FBI will get burried under a prison! He's being court martialed you help them out so as to not get an ass wuping.

    I am so bored to ear jokes about how lame Trump is. You Americans got what you voted for. If you say "well I voted for Democrats", I say you did not work hard enough and got what you deserved. As a Canadian, how can I say USA is still our ally? Frankly!? All you want is more money for yourself. We might be trade partners, just like when we buy Vodka from Russia, but do not say we are allies. Its just one more lie on the pile.

    The ceding of enforcement against treason to the executive was a mistake. You can't execute arrest if you've been encouraged to develop contemptuous law. This is why dummy issues are constructed for the consumption of the populace, to bracket murderers of their own people whenever they make a big move. Only the return of the noose will stop them, they are recruited, largely overt psychopaths.

    A little anecdota wisdom for Flynn and his lawyers:
    Way back when I was just a little runt, my grandmother took me shopping.
    I saw a candy bar that I wanted but wasn't allowed to have, so, being a little punk, I tried to, uh, do some proletarian-style shopping.
    My grandmother obviously knew, as she took me aside and quietly asked me if I had swiped that candy bar before we got to the counter.
    I said no, and stuffed the candy bar deeper in my pocket; my reward was a swift and hard backhand to the face.
    Now, in this anecdote, my survival skills kicked in and I came clean - but imagine if I went with the "well, grandma, you didn't tell me that lying was a no-no" defense... I suspect her next backhand would hit so hard that I'd be the first person to see the world in 360 degrees all the time, way back when such technology wasn't even brought up in sci-fi.

Pretty and pretty stupid. I mean...really dumb, lack of intelligence, and IQ you can get to with toes and fingers. Hold on it is going to get rough as this battle for power gets played out. It is real, not just on Colbert. Sadly Colbert is deceiving all of his audience so they won't be ready for what is coming.

    We The People.. have a narcissist for a president..I have been screaming this since the day he put his hat in the ring...while The Popular Vote said this guy sux...The Electoral College (Read:political brown-noses) wanted this guy.
    Now they got him and can't put a leash on him (psychiatrists couldn't put a leash on him with all the drugs in their arsenal)
    But as a businessman Ol Donny has a few tricks up his sleeve....and that the problem, and part of the solution of some of The US long term problems ( IP contracts with China that DEMAND the release of tech document before they agree to produce)
    Americans don't need a President with tricks up his sleeve....(look at Trump Foundation...they pay for a $10,000 for a painting that winds up in one of his for-profit businesses.)
    I am willing to bet my house...he thought that little detail would never be seen. But he didn't expect the press scrutiny of every part of his life after he ran for President.

    Ok, Colbert has some funny shit. Problem is it is all backwards. The 12/20/2018 cartoon with Chris Cringle and Bob Mueller is EXACTLY the opposite of what will REALLY happen. The majority of the people are behind Trump. The military is behind Trump. Every AR-15 owning, whiskey drinking, flag waving militia group in the country is behind Trump. How many AR's do you own? Think about it. ALL of the major Dems will be in jail before the end of Jan 2019 and you won't hear about it until it is all over. John Reilly interview was good, very funny.

    I noticed the man in the stands behind Donald's right shoulder jumping up and down waving a pink 'Women for Trump' sign and a photo of a van decorated with Trump stickers. He goes by (Vincent Fusca), wearing a black hat, glasses, unshaven, dark jacket with a USA flag handkerchief poking out of the pocket.
