"Increasingly difficult to wake up overseas to news from home, knowing I will spend today explaining our democracy and institutions. "

US Ambassador to Qatar Dana Shell Smith


Dana Shell Smith  ✔@AmbDana 


Obama appointee, US Ambassador to Qatar Dana Shell Smith has created a diplomatic incident after she tweeted her frustrations with the Trump administration.
Smith, who has been based in Qatar since 2014, took to Twitter early Wednesday to voice her feelings following the decision to fire FBI Director James Comey. The US ambassador to Qatar has expressed her dissatisfaction with political events back home in a decidedly undiplomatic message posted on social media.

Dana Shell Smith, who has been the American envoy to the Gulf emirate since 2014, took to Twitter in the hours after the dramatic sacking of FBI director James Comey by President Donald Trump.

"Increasingly difficult to wake up overseas to news from home, knowing I will spend today explaining our democracy and institutions," Shell Smith tweeted, in apparent disapproval of the move.

It was a rare public show of exasperation with political events -- either in the US or Qatar -- by the envoy, who was appointed by Barack Obama.

The message was posted on May 9 and has been retweeted more than 2,000 times.
Qatar is a key US ally and home to Al-Udeid, the largest US airbase in the region, which houses around 10,000 troops.

Last month, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis visited Doha and met Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani.

Trade between the two countries is also growing.

Last year, after Trump's election, it was announced that gas-rich Qatar's sovereign wealth fund wanted to invest $10 billion in US infrastructure projects.

There was some angry reaction to Shell Smith's tweet online, with calls for her to be sacked for her apparent criticism of the president.

In a new post on Thursday morning, Shell Smith appeared to try to take the sting out of her earlier message.

"Diplomats explain & defend our political system. Can be tough when partisan acrimony so high, but there is still no greater country. #USA," she tweeted.

    Comeygate

    As the world turns...and the story unravels.

    Yesterday, the president's people were peddling the story that a letter from Asst. Attorney General Rosenstein was the precipitating event that convinced Trump to fire Comey.

    Today, in an interview with Lester Holt, Trump says that the decision was made independent of the letter and long before it was written. It was his decision to dump Comey and he made it long ago.

    Today's story is that Comey was a 'showboat and a grandstander' and that because of his actions the FBI is in turmoil and morale there is low and that the FBI rank and file had lost confidence in Comey's leadership and those were the reasons for the firing.

    Today, in congressional hearings, acting FBI Director McCabe was asked about this. He indicated that some within the FBI disagreed with Comey's actions back in July, but that Comey was well thought of there, that there was no unusual turmoil within the FBI, and that morale remains high.

    Also in the NBC interview, Trump repeated what he said in his letter/tweet that Comey had told him on 3 occasions that he (Trump) was not the subject of an investigation. When pressed, Trump admitted that he was the one who asked Comey if he was being investigated. To anyone who has any knowledge of the law or who has been called to jury duty, it should be obvious that it's completely inappropriate for anyone who is a possible subject of an ongoing investigation to be asking questions about that investigation.


    Today, we will again be hearing from Sarah Huckabee Sanders who told us yesterday yesterday's story. It will be interesting to hear what she has to say today.

    Sarah yesterday said that Trump did not ask Rosenstein for the letter. Word was out that Rosenstein was pissed that the firing was being blamed entirely on his letter. Pence and Spicer confirmed. Today, in interview Sarah changed her story and said Trump was the one who asked Rosenstein for the letter.

    All of this, if nothing else, is an example of the gang who couldn't shoot straight currently running the administration. It's obvious that for anyone with the least bit of integrity the White House staff positions especially those that interface with the public have got to be the worst jobs in D.C. They are constantly being called upon to go before the public and the media and pass along the half baked lies concocted at the top.

      James Comey, a modern Greek tragedy
      By Robert Arvay

      As Americans, we tend to divide our prominent public figures into two main categories: hero and villain. Would that life were so simple. It has not been, not even in ancient times.

      Ancient Greek tragedy is a genre of classic literature, one from which we might learn some important lessons about the powerful people who rule over us, or at least who try to do so. The Greek playwrights often depicted their main character as a great hero, but beset by one fatal flaw, which, in the end, brings him to doom. Well might they have predicted Comey's rise and fall....


      http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/05/james_comey_a_modern_greek_tragedy.html

      If you are going to defend Comey and condemn The Donald, at least do it with a little balance.

    HOW DARE TRUMP FIRE COMEY!
    The Left’s shameless hypocrisy on the firing of the FBI Director
    May 11, 2017 Daniel Greenfield

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

    Before the election, Nancy Pelosi had hinted that Hillary would fire FBI Director James Comey.

    "Maybe he's not in the right job," the House Dem leader had coyly suggested. "I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way."

    The FBI Director was at risk of becoming a “casualty” over his handling of the Hillary investigation.

    There was no outrage and no front page editorials at the New York Times and the Washington Post. No comparisons to Watergate or calls for an investigation. A top Dem suggesting that the FBI Director would have to leave because he was investigating another top Dem was just “good government.”

    And there would have been none of the hypocritical media outcry if the election had gone another way and Comey were being told to pack his bags by President Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager had also hinted that Comey might have to step down because of his bias against Hillary. Now he claims that Trump’s firing of Comey “terrifies” him.

    After Comey’s letter, Schumer had declared, “I do not have confidence in him any longer.” That is what top government officials say before demanding someone’s job. But now Schumer is outraged. "If we don't get a special prosecutor, every American will rightfully suspect that the decision to fire #Comey was part of a cover-up," he tweeted.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Were the Dem calls for Comey to resign also part of a cover-up?

      Harry Reid had called on Comey to resign. Congressman Steve Cohen even wrote an op-ed titled, “For the Sake of the FBI, Comey Should Resign.” Now he touts Comey as a recipient for the Profiles in Courage award and accuses Trump of firing him because Comey “threatened his presidency.”

      From Comey must go for investigating Hillary to Comey must get an award for investigating Trump. Did Cohen want Comey to resign then because he threatened Hillary Clinton’s presidency?

      The incoherently official position of the Dems is that Comey should have been forced out for investigating Hillary. But that Trump shouldn’t be allowed to fire him because that’s a cover-up.

      Democrats should be able to get rid of inconvenient FBI directors any time they please. And if Hillary had won, it wouldn’t have been the first time that President Clinton fired an FBI Director.

      The last president to send an FBI Director packing was Bill Clinton. The firing of Director Sessions was widely supported by the media even though the early Clinton scandals had already bumped up against the FBI. Like Comey, the media had initially backed Sessions on the hope that he would hurt Bush. And indeed, on Sessions’ watch, the FBI had tried to entrap the head of President Bush’s Texas campaign.

      Then Bill Clinton won and the FBI was up to its ears both doing the dirty work for Hillary in the travel office scandal and investigating the scandal. The Clintons had bypassed the Justice Department to get the FBI to target travel office employees and secure a position for their friends and relatives. They illegally obtained FBI files on their targets and on hundreds of Republicans under false pretenses.

      The House Government Reform and Oversight Committee would later produce a report accusing the White House of politicizing the FBI. The FBI had been investigating its own contacts with the White House. The same month that Clinton fired Sessions, the White House released a report on the propriety of its own actions. It was against this corrupt background that the FBI Director was fired.

      Director Sessions was fired on July 19, 1993. On the next day, Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster was found dead in a Washington D.C. park. A note found in his briefcase included the phrase, "The FBI lied in their report to the AG." ....

      They should understand, as it works the same way in Europe, or anywhere humans gather in numbers.

  15. Pope Francis: Death penalty is a “mortal sin”
    POSTED AT 6:01 PM ON MAY 11, 2017 BY ED MORRISSEY

    If Pope Francis has been criticized for ambiguity in Amoris Laetitia, he certainly can’t be faulted for it in his latest comments on the death penalty. In his homily today, the pontiff called for a deeper understanding of Christ in the context of our times and of human progress. Just as Christian nations gradually understood the evil of slavery, Francis argued, so too should enlightened nations realize that the death penalty is also a “mortal sin” that is “inadmissible” under any circumstances....on and on....

    5. Clinton Ally Governor McAuliffe’s PAC Donated To Wife Of FBI Official [VIDEO]

      Gosh darn it, those Democrats are just like a small town community! You just go to meet a random candidate to try and talk her into running for office, and you just happen to discover that her husband is the deputy director of the FBI!

      I mean, how was Terry McAuliffe, Democrat governor of Virginia, supposed to know that! It’s just like discovering that your dentist is the cousin of your college roommate!
      Small world, right? What are the odds???

      McCabe knows damn well that Comey talking about any open case would be against FBI rules, but so far no one's asked him that, I guess.

      If you are talking about McCabe, he was asked about it in today's hearing with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

      If you are talking about Comey, he will probably be asked about it if he still appears in front of the Senate Committee as he was scheduled to do next Tuesday.

      If Comey did say Trump wasn't being investigated (as Trump said), Comey violated long standing protocol. Of course, Trump did the same or worse by initially asking him the question.

  22. A top FBI official who came under scrutiny last year over his wife’s campaign contributions from a Hillary Clinton ally did not list those 2015 donations or his wife’s salary in financial disclosure forms, according to records reviewed by Fox News.

    The records, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, show FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe left the box blank for wife Dr. Jill McCabe's salary, as a doctor with Commonwealth Emergency Physicians. And there is no documentation of the hundreds of thousands of campaign funds she received in her unsuccessful 2015 Virginia state Senate race.

    As first reported by The Wall Street Journal, Clinton confidant and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe urged McCabe’s wife to run for statewide office shortly after news reports were published that Hillary Clinton used a private email server and address for all her government business while serving as secretary of State.

    The real reason Trump fired Comey...

    Comey is taller than Trump, better looking, and was getting more air time.

  25. I tell you true, it's only when Sky News or BBC turns to USA politics that things get at all interesting on those channels.

    You should listen to some of these English broads dissing The Donald.

  31. Australia is "open" to a United States request for more troops to be sent to Afghanistan, with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull confirming the Government is considering providing additional resources to the war-torn country.

    ...

    Australian troops are expected to remain in Afghanistan, which is battling a resurgent Taliban along with militants from the Islamic State group, for at least two more years.

    That will take Australia's commitment in the country to 18 years.

  32. Quirk:

    "Those left in the dark included everyone else, Congress, the FBI, the public, the press, and Comey himself."


    Sen. Dianne Feinstein:

    “President Trump called me at 5:30 p.m. and indicated he would be removing Director Comey, saying the FBI needed a change,” she said in the statement.

    “The next FBI director must be strong and independent and will receive a fair hearing in the Judiciary Committee.”

    1. .

      You're kidding right.

      The only report I saw about Feinstein's quote said it was on Tuesday the same day Comey was fired. You call that not being left in the dark? And what about everyone else? Was this Trump's plan for getting the word out, "Well, let's see, what's the best way to do this?"

      "Telephone? No."

      "Telegraph? No."

      "Tell a woman? Yea, that's the ticket."

      He calls Diane and says, what?

      "Say Diane, I'm firing Comey. Pass it on."

      Until word came out, supposedly only a few within Trump's inner circle were aware it was going down. Most of his staff didn't know (thus the FUBAR when the shit hit the fan). Burr the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee didn't know about it. Neither did anyone else on the committee (and these are the guys doing the Russian investigation). The media didn't know about it until it happened. The public sure as hell didn't. Comey didn't. He was out in California at a conference with other FBI agents when he got the news he was fired on the TV.

      You put this up the other day and I figured you were kidding.

      I guess not.

      Why don't you quit coming up with these moronic arguments?

      She was informed of it Tuesday the same day it happened. She was one of the few people notified. She is the ranking member. What about the chairman? Trump didn't let most of his own team know. There was no friggin prep. His staff, the ones that had the shitty job of trying to explain the move didn't know about it and ended up handing out a line bullshit only to be ridiculed the next day when their stories fell apart.

      The point of my original post was 'the gang who couldn't shoot stright' and the FUBAR that usually accompanies any move by our drama queen president. You concentrate on minutiae.
