The Truman thing is apparently about whether or not to go through with the midlife refueling and overhaul in 2024. Seems odd to not do it but the Pentagon apparently announces back in February that they’d start decommissioning the ship instead when the refueling is necessary.

While we are building new carriers it seems weird for the CNO to want a smaller fleet.

If we aren't an empire why do we need such a large fleet?

Nothing, probably, but Barr is stuttering and basically saying Rosenstein will handle things. Rosenstein leaves next week.

Barr also shot his own arguments in the foot by blatently ignoring legal definitions.

It's not a bad paper and they do solid reporting, but they're firmly entrenched in the center-right orthodoxy on economics and foreign policy. Hence the "what's the joke?", if you want a non-insane newspaper that swings to the right it is a decent option.

WaPo had some pretty awesome election reporting but then they went completely crazy trying to both sides everything. The article that finally got me to cancel mine was a piece on the Penn State rape coverup and how the real victims was football.

I guess I should phrased it better then center right. I just was thinking more of stuff like WSJ/Daily Telegraph, but I didnít think that would fall into say the term right leaning or right wing. I guess I meant right, but not insane or junk tabloid.

More so I guess itís always the problem of trying to apply the political spectrum to certain things as though itís uniform or fits nicely.

Lord knows I can imagine The Economist would probably gets some varied placing of it on the political spectrum depending on who you asked.

The Holder Contempt case resolved when the House GOP went to a federal judge to enforce it and the federal judge went "nah, lol" and everyone more or less went on their way. The judge told the DOJ to provide more Fast and Furious documents and it lasted like four years.

The House GOP was butthurt about the amount of documents being provided and wouldn't accept a DOJ deal, so they did the Contempt action as a whiny thing. It was pretty obvious that DOJ was giving up stuff, the GOP just didn't like it.

This current stuff is different, as Democrats are coming up against a total and complete stonewall from officials about subpoenas. Trump is basically telling them to take their subpoenas and shove them. I essentially agree that nothing substantive is going to happen, but Democrats are making noises about enforcing contempt proceedings with fines and lockerup, which has generally been litigated already as legit options.

As it's 2019, nothing that funny will happen. Could be wrong though!

This will be a fun subpoena for the Trump administration to attempt to beat. Barr/DOJ is pissed that Democrats want to have the questioning run by Democratic Counsel, aka people that know what they're talking about when trying to pin down a legal snake.
