"THE THING ABOUT PAM" resulted in so many e-mails. I am so happy to know that so many other people are loving this NBC show (Tuesday nights). I stream it on PEACOCK but you can also stream it on HULU or YOUTUBE TV. You might be able to stream it at the NBC website.
But it is so great and so involving and I cannot stop raving over Renee Zellweger because she is just so amazing in this TV series. I do need to point out that Josh Duhamel is pretty great too. I did not realize that was him until Karen and Cliff both pointed it out in their e-mails. I had looked for him and thought he might come on in a later episode. I did not recognize him with wavy/curly hair.
It is just a gripping show.
Now let me note Jonathan Turley on an under-covered news story:
I previously wrote about deep concerns over the FBI investigation of Project Veritas over the missing diary of Ashley Biden, daughter of President Joe Biden. The use of the FBI in a case involving a missing diary is itself difficult to square with its priorities, let alone the different treatment given the New York Times. Now, counsel for Project Veritas has filed a motion detailing what could be a very serious violation of court orders as well as an attack on free speech and free press.
There has been relatively little attention to the extraordinary efforts of the Biden Justice Department in pursuing those connected with the disappearance of the diary of the President’s daughter. The concern is that the FBI is acting like a Praetorian Guard in acting on what is a crime ordinarily handled on a local level.
The controversy over Ashley Biden‘s diary began during her father’s campaign for the presidency in 2020. Like her brother Hunter, Ashley has struggled with addiction and was living in a two-bedroom house in Delray Beach, Fla., with a friend. According to the New York Times, she decided to go to Philadelphia but to leave some belongings in two bags in the Delray house. The owner later allowed a friend named Aimee Harris and her two children to move in. The Times strongly suggests that Ms. Harris searched the possessions, noting that she was hard up for money and was also a Trump supporter. The Times then simply says “exactly what happened next remains the subject of the federal investigation.”
Project Veritas and its founder, James O’Keefe, maintained that they were given the diary by a “tipster” but decided not to use it. Indeed, the group later turned over the material to law enforcement.
As noted by the New York Times, court records show that on Oct. 12, 2020, O’Keefe told Project Veritas staff that said they would not publish a story about the diary. He explained that, while they had “no doubt the document is real,” he was concerned that publishing the diary would be seen “as a cheap shot.”
Now we have new details of the lengths that the government has gone in this case, including allegedly evading a court order to protect the confidentiality of journalistic and attorney-client material.
In its 45-page court filing, counsel accused the Department of Justice of such circumvention after Microsoft recently revealed that the DOJ had previously seized Project Veritas documents from a cloud account using a warrant. I testified on such abuses recently in Congress.
The Project describes the investigation as “retributive” on behalf of the Biden Administration. It did so with “extreme measures that violate the First Amendment and corrode freedom of the press,” according to the filing.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
Thursday, March 24, 2022. Moqtada al-Sadr wasnt his inexperienced relative to be prime minister of Iraq as Mad Maddie Albright slips away to that special place in hell that she spoke so often of.
We're live on the Blood Runway, awaiting the latest arrival. Look, there he is, Mad Maddie! She's sipping throug purgatory as she heads straight to hell. Mad Maddie! Mad Maddie! Can you stop a moment to speak to us!!!
Madeleine Albright :Yes, what is it?
Is there anything you'd like to say to our viewing audience?
Madeleine Albright : Just that I've always believed that hate is eternal and if you spend your life focused on that, you can do a lot real damage and kill a lot of innocent people. The only wasted life is a life dovted to love and peace.
Some people consider you a buthcer.
Madeleine Albright :: A butcher? No, a utcher does much more honest work. I'm an excutioner. I am a destroyer. I used my time on earth ensuring others wuffered and I'm really, really proud of that. My only real regret is that I couldn't have killed more.
Mad Maddie could you speak up, some people in purgatory are starting to boo.
Madeleine Albright : Yes, and I hear them. All I can say is you hate me, you really, really hate me. It makes all I did worth it to feel so much hate and repulsion.
What are you most grateful for?
Madeleine Albright : A lifetime of destrution. Probably right after that would be the press..I've always insisted, ''Give me a whorish press and I can kill millions." They whored for me while I killed Iraqi children. They whored for me out of office. Kisses to Katrina vanden Heuvel who ran Naomi Klein's GUARDIAN report on James Baker profiting off the Iraq War but refused to let THE NATION run the article about me profiting off the Iraq War. Katty, you cheap whore, let's bump one last time when you join me in hell! But seriously, even now the press whores for me, even in death. They won't hold me accountable. They'll talk about me being the first -- and theyll shortchange me. "The First and The Worst!" -- that's how I always billed myself. Give me the credit I'm due!!!!
Last question, Mad Maddie, what are you wearing?
Madeleine Albright :: It's my 100% pure civilian coat, made from the skins of many of the actual children I condemned to death. All murders matter but there's something especially soft and warm about knowing that your kill was a child, you know what I mean? Now excuse me, I have to go. The Haliburton wing of Hell has a strict check-in policy and I don't want to lose my suite. Tell Condi [Rice] to keep giving Hank [Kissinger] all the love that I did and, Dick [Cheney], I know you'll be joining me soon!
Madeleine Albright has left the earth. The whorish press is attempting to sweep up and conceal the mess she left behind. Some will insist don't speak ill of the dead but did Mad Maddie follow that practice regarding the Iraqi children she killed?
From Elaine's "Mad Maddie leaves this earth:"
Madeleine Albright died today. Do not worry about the former Secretary
of State. As she long noted, there is a special place in hell . . . for
people like her.
She infamously said there was a special place in hell for women who didn't help other women. Since she took pleasure in the deaths of so many Iraqi girls (and boys) you can be sure her destination is already booked and they have a room ready.
"We think it was wroth it." That's her infamous remark from 60 MINUTES when Lesley Stahl asked her about the crushing sanctions she oversaw as part of Bill Clinton's administration -- sanctions that led
Liz Sly (WASHINGTON POST) noted in 2017 that a more recent study had found that it wasn't 500,000 children who died.
But that was what the figure was thought to be when Mad Maddie was asked. And she said it was worth it.
She was a bloody thirsty War Hawk. Unlike the bulk of the deaths she caused, she lived to the age of 84. She profited off of the Iraq War. She was a merchant of death. I hope she will be very warm in her after-life. Very, very warm.
Former secretary of state Madelyn Albright said killing 500,000 kids was "worth it." I watched the interview and thought she'd find a way not to answer, obfuscate, blame Saddam, or change the subject. Nope. She went all in. Killing kids was ok with her. Now she's dead. Oh well.

In Iraq, the political stalemate continues. October 10th elections were held. The country still waits on a president and prime minister all these months later. ARB WEKKLY reports:
Partisan and personal loyalties have decided the fate of Iraq's presidency and premiership, despite all previous vows by populist leader Moqtada al-Sadr to base his nominations for leadership posts on the national interest only.
Instead, Iraq seems to be moving away from a system of political quotas to one based on the accommodation of various players, if not indeed, plain nepotism.
Sadr chose to nominate Riber Ahmed, the Kurdistan region’s interior minister and director of the office of party leader Massoud Barzani, for the position of president of the republic. He has also nominated Mohammad Jaafar al-Sadr, one of his cousins, to serve as the country’s prime minister.
Iraqi political analysts said that Sadr, who had claimed to be motivated by a desire to free himself from the yoke of the pro-Iranian Shia Coordination Framework, has fallen under the control of Massoud Barzani and accepted his conditions. These included endorsing the latter’s nominee for the presidency of Iraq, despite the fact that the candidate is virtually unknown to most Iraqis. Moreover, Ahmed will have a hard time filling the shoes of a figure of the stature, connections and overall record of the incumbent Barham Salih.
Analysts said that by agreeing to be swayed by the game of political accommodation and by choosing a relative with no political record nor experience as nominee for prime minister, Sadr has shown he is no different from the rest of the political players who have assumed leadership positions in the country since the 2003 US invasion. His opposition to quotas, nepotism and his advocacy of the “national majority” now ring hollow, they add.
Three days before the appointment of a new president for Iraq, the tripartite alliance (the Sunni Sovereignty Alliance, the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Sadrists) announced the formation of the largest bloc in parliament under the banner of “Saving the Country”. The new alliance officially announced the nomination of Riber Ahmed for president and Mohammad Jaafar al-Sadr as prime minister.
The buffon the western press called a "kingmaker" is revealed as the fraud so many of us already knew he was. In fact, the western press itself was smarter about Moqtada in 2004 than they are now (excepting Paddy Cockburn who was always an idiot when it came to Moqtada -- then and now).
March 25th is when Parliament is set to meet next and they should be voting on the issue of president. There are dozens of nominees. After the president is voted on, the next step would be for the new president to name a prime minister-designate. That person would then have 30 days to form a Cabinet. It's supposed to be a full Cabinet. No one's ever been held to that. They should be. It's the only measure you have to meet to move from prime minister designate to actual prime minister. The point of the test is to demonstrate that you will be able to govern. And the more empty Cainet spaces a designate has had, the harder it was for them to govern once they were prime minister. So the test does serve a prupose.
We'll wind down with a few more Tweets regarding the thankfully dead Mad Maddie:
