VALERIE PLAME

I remember the name way back when during the time of Dumb George W. and Evil Cheney.

(Republicans seem to always have been evil … but I digress!)

As soon as Ms. Plame’s situation came to light and she wrote her book I ordered it. If found, to my chagrin, that most of the book was redacted!

Anyways, I recently found this information and video.

Just found out she’s running for Senate as a Democrat from New Mexico.

Seems that I have to root for Ms. Plame!!

WHO IS VALERIE PLAME?

Valerie Elise Plame Wilson (August 13, 1963), is an American writer, spy novelist, and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer.

As the subject of the 2003 Plame affair, also known as the CIA leak scandal, Plame’s identity as a CIA officer was leaked to and subsequently published by Robert Novak of the Washington Post.
In the aftermath of the scandal, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Chief of Staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was identified as one source of the information. Libby was subsequently convicted of lying to investigators. After a failed appeal, President George W. Bush commuted Libby’s sentence and in 2018, Drumpf pardoned him.

No one was formally charged with leaking the information.
In collaboration with a ghostwriter,

Plame wrote a memoir detailing her career and the events leading up to her resignation from the CIA. She has subsequently written and published at least two spy novels. A 2010 biographical feature film, Fair Game, was produced based on memoirs by her and her husband.

Outed CIA agent Valerie Plame is running for Congress, and her launch video looks like a spy movie trailer

The metaphors are a little heavy-handed, but the driving is impressive and the timing is impeccable.

On the same day CNN reported that the CIA had to withdraw one of its top spies in Russia on fears that Drumpf had compromised the spy’s identity, former undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame launched her bid for Congress as a Democrat in New Mexico.
If you don’t know the story of Plame being outed by then-Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff, Scooter Libby – and the coda of Drumpf pardoning Libby earlier this year – Plame narrates the outline as she speeds backward through the New Mexico desert in an American muscle car (no Aston Martin here, thank you very much).

Is that really Plame driving and peeling out in the dust like a seasoned stuntwoman or, you know, James Bond? She says yes.

As in: “Yes, the CIA really does teach us how to drive like this.”

The slick ad, the sick driving chops, and her call for revenge will probably earn Plane attention in New Mexico (and Washington), but if she wins the Democratic primary to replace Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) – who is running for Senate – the partisan leanings of New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District suggest she’d be headed back to Washington.

I’m running for Congress because we’re going backwards on national security, health care, and women’s rights. We need to turn our country around.

She Wants To Go ‘Behind Closed Doors’???


JONI ERNST, from Iowa!! … time to be voted out!! … “I could list at least 100 good reasons that this nation cannot afford to re-elect Drumpf in 2020. This is just one, but an important one – a crucial one.’

Filosofa's Word

Joni-ErnstJoni Ernst is a U.S. Senator representing the state of Iowa.  Ordinarily, I would respect and admire this woman, for she served for 23 years in the U.S. military.  Ordinarily, given her military service, I would even be able to look past the fact that she is a republican.  But, when somebody starts trying to rob me and millions of other people, they lose my respect real fast.

Before I get into that, let’s take a look at Ms. Ernst and some of the things she stands either for or against:

  • Ernst referred to Obama as a dictator who should be “removed from office” or face “impeachment.” And yet … she wouldn’t support impeaching the most corrupt, autocratic president in history?

  • Ernst opposes the federal minimum wage and has said that states should have sole authority to set their own minimum wages, saying, “I think $7.25 is appropriate.” I wonder…

WE WILL NOT LET HATE WIN

The phrase, cry motto was coined in the aftermath of one of the worst mass shootings in this nation.

I would say that this now applies to the sad reality of America’s overall state.

Hate (in any way, shape or form) can’t be allowed to win in our lives.

Jaw-Dropping Snarky Snippets …


‘JAW-DROPPING SNARKY SNIPPETS’ … and there are so many of them!! Betcha many others will developed as this inept administration (to put it mildly) continues to wreck the America we new, faults and all!!

Filosofa's Word

The radar is busy tonight, so many different things on the screen that have me gritting my teeth and wearing the scowl that seems to be permanently etched on my face.  The first snippet is one that will give you nightmares.


He can’t keep a secret …

Just yesterday evening, CNN reported that a Russian spy who was operating in a high-level capacity within Putin’s government, was extracted by the U.S. in mid-2017, in part because high-ranking intelligence officials feared that Trump’s inability to keep his mouth shut would put the spy’s life in danger.  Believe it or not, Trump sycophant Mike Pompeo, who was then the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), was behind the move.

The decision was made shortly after the May 2017 meeting in which Trump discussed highly classified intelligence with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak, much…

Ah, yes. The underpinnings for sugar addiction. I’m O.K. Breathe easier.


‘Think of the actual physical elements that compose our bodies: we are 98 percent hydrogen and oxygen and carbon. That’s table sugar. You are made of the same stuff as table sugar.’ …. and more!

Think of the actual physical elements that compose our bodies: we are 98 percent hydrogen and oxygen and carbon. That’s table sugar. You are made of the same stuff as table sugar.

Just a couple of tiny differences here and there and look what happened to the sugar: it can stand upright and send tweets.
