Tim Morrison's loyalty

Tim Morrison was in the White House Situation Room listening to Trump's July call with Ukrainian President Zelensky.

In his opening statement to his deposition on 31 October 2019, Tim Morrison said:

  • he didn't think that Trump said anything wrong in his call
  • he wanted the National Security Council to know about the contents of the call
  • he feared the call contents would be leaked
  • he recommended restricting access to the call content

Watching his testimony in the impeachment hearings on 19 November 2019, it seems to me that one can interpret Tim Morrison's testimony differently: taking actions to protect the President.

The Adam Schiff Version

President Donald Trump of the United States, claims that the whistleblower's and Adam Schiff's version of Trump's July phone conversation with the President of Ukraine was completely made-up.

"I didn’t think you had that in you to be so nice"

Lindsey Graham said to me when he read [the transcript of the July Ukraine call], it was very interesting.

He's a good man, he's a smart man.

He said, "I can't believe it. I never knew you could be this really nice to a person."

He said, "I cannot believe, you were so... I didn't think you had that in you to be so nice."

Translation of Trump's inauguration speech

Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you. Hello
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people. ​America isn't great now, but we will make America great again.

Value truth and accuracy

It's so important for citizens to act as journalists in a time when the Police State is cracking down on us.

NOTW = Not of This World?

Last night, for the second time this year, I watched in open-mouthed amazement Paul McMullan talking about the News of the World (NOTW) phone-hacking scandal.

He was a journalist at the News of the World between 1994 and 2001.

Exposing the fakers

There's been a lot of coverage here in England about telephone competition scams. This seems to have involved in the news to fakery in television: from noddies, storming queens, naming cats, catching fish, and now FEMA staff posing as reporters in America.

It's all rather silly. But perhaps something good can come out of it.

Meeting unreal people

In July, the BBC morning news programme did a short feature on Facebook.

A psychologist was concerned that people were spending time in a compelling "virtual world" rather than interacting with people in the "real" world.

Frank taped the segment for me to see how long it'd take before I started shouting at the TV.
