Report: Jim Jordan spoke with Trump more than once on Jan. 6, urged him to call off the dogs
Aldous J Pennyfarthing

Judging by Jim Jordan’s caginess whenever he’s asked about his Jan. 6 conversations with Donald Trump, you’d think thousands of MAGAs had stormed the U.S. Capitol searching for college wrestlers to interview. But, no. This is simply how he comports himself when he’s backed into a corner. The gendarmes may be closing in now, and he’s looking for a tricked-out submarine to whisk him back to his volcano lair.

While Jordan has been more vocal than most in his defense of the mephitic amalgam of antediluvian skin blotches, pancake makeup, and ignominy who was still cosplaying as president in January, he also appears to understand that his contacts with Donald Trump on the day of the big guy’s bumble**** putsch are, at the very least, bad optics.

So you get hilarious videos like these:



Clearly, that conversation left some blood in the water, and this reporter sniffed it out:



Nice. That first video was pretty bad, but the sequel made him sound like a tweaker trying to get through airport security with two bursting duffels full of Sudafed.


Well, now he’s, shall we say, “altering” his story once again.

Politico:

SCOOP: MORE THAN ONE JAN. 6 TRUMP-JORDAN CALL — We know that DONALD TRUMP and Rep. JIM JORDAN spoke once on the day of the Capitol riot, but the Ohio Republican has said he doesn’t remember when their conversation took place. We have some new details that could help clear up that timeframe — including confirmation of at least one more phone conversation between Jordan and the then-president during the siege.

“Look, I definitely spoke to the president that day. I don't recall — I know it was more than once, I just don't recall the times,” Jordan told our Olivia Beavers. He later said that “I’m sure” one of the Trump-involved calls took place in the safe room “because we were in that room forever.” ... Jordan would not get into the specifics of what he discussed with the president, though he said that like everyone, he wanted the National Guard to get involved.

Jordan has previously disclosed that he spoke to Trump on Jan. 6, but not the existence of more than one call on the day — a rare piece of new information on the former president’s moves during the riot at a time when House Republicans are loath to discuss such specifics. Trump-Jordan discussions are likely to be of keen interest to the Democrat-led select committee on Jan. 6, which is expected to soon seek phone records of members of Congress themselves in its probe.

Politico also noted that both Jordan and Rep. Matt Gaetz were on a call with Trump in which they “implored” our insurrectionist prez to “tell his supporters to stand down.”

Hmm. Maybe these two need to testify to the House select committee investigating the events of Jan. 6. What d’ya think?

It’s interesting, of course, that this revelation comes just days after this CNN story broke:

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot is poised to send notices to various telecommunications companies requesting that they preserve the phone records of several people, including members of Congress, multiple sources tell CNN.

Preserving communications records is the first step in an investigatory process that could eventually lead to witness testimony. The notices are set to go out as soon as this week and provide the first window into the kinds of information the committee plans to pursue.


While it remains unclear which members' records the committee is interested in, several Republican lawmakers, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, have acknowledged speaking to then-President Donald Trump by phone on January 6.

It’s bound to get more uncomfortable for Ol’ Gym as fall sets in and the committee members fix their icy stares on the congressional rogue’s gallery of (alleged) coup enablers. The congressman may want to put on a jacket, because if he tells the truth under oath, he can expect an eternal MAGA freeze-out.

Multiple rockets were fired at Kabul's international airport but were intercepted by a missile defense system, a U.S. official told Reuters citing initial information.

The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said as many as 5 rockets were fired, though it was not clear if all were brought down by the defense system.........

.....We don’t know what the owners of Alex Springer have in mind for Politico. But it won’t be much of a leap to turn it into an American version of Bild. What we’ll have is a publication that bills itself as balanced and nonpartisan while it exploits fear, portrays the left as totalitarian, and pretends that the far right is part of the political mainstream. If so, move over RealClearPolitics, you’ve got a new competitor......

'This is going to be a really long recovery,' FEMA head says as Hurricane Ida moves out of Louisiana
Laura Clawson

Hurricane Ida weakened to a tropical storm early Monday as it moved to Mississippi, but not before battering Louisiana—it is tied for the fifth-strongest hurricane to hit the mainland U.S.—leaving at least one person dead, more than 1 million customers without power, and unknown damage being assessed now that the storm has moved on.

“Having those high winds for several hours, that storm surge for several hours, as well as the intense rainfall, and I think as we get up this morning, we're hearing reports, but we're going to see even more destruction," FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell said on MSNBC. "This is going to be a really long recovery.”
...........
“As the sun comes out this morning, please remain where you are,” Gov. John Bel Edwards tweeted Monday morning. “#Ida has left many hazards across Louisiana including flooded roadways, debris & downed powerlines.”

For an unknown number of people, “where you are” means the attic, where some families retreated to escape from rising water flooding the lower levels of their homes. “When we got in the attic, the water was right below my knees," LaPlace resident Tiffany Miller told local news WDSU. "For the water to get that high in my house, the water outside needs to be at least waist deep.”

Complicating the immediate rescue and recovery effort was the fact that not only was New Orleans left without power starting Sunday evening, but 911 systems in New Orleans and Jefferson Parish weren’t working. “At this time, 9-1-1 is experiencing technical difficulties. If you find yourself in an emergency, please go to your nearest fire station or approach your nearest officer,” the Orleans Parish Communication District tweeted. By contrast, Jefferson Parish advised people to stay where they were because travel was difficult. And, of course, if you’re trapped in the attic, “go to your nearest fire station” is really not possible.

Sorting out the damage under the circumstances will be difficult—already, there have been conflicting reports about whether some levees have failed or simply been overtopped. And the hurricane’s path through an area dense with chemical plants raises concerns. Other hurricanes in recent years have led to fires and chemical or oil leaks.

One piece of good news as the recovery gets underway is that congressional Democrats have learned the lessons of the past, and included $50 billion for the FEMA disaster relief fund in the COVID-19 relief package. That means that congressional Republicans can’t hold up relief funding as they’ve done for past disasters—though, since the states affected are largely represented by Republicans, it’s less likely they would have opposed funding for this specific disaster. But, of course, every single Republican voted against the American Rescue Plan, including its FEMA funding.

Doctor who promoted ivermectin as a COVID-19 treatment has advised Florida’s governor

The surge of interest in the parasite drug, ivermectin, prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday to issue a national alert advising against its use to treat coronavirus. The maker of the drug, Merck, has also said there is “no scientific basis” to claim that ivermectin is effective against COVID-19.

Dr. Mark McDonald of Los Angeles is among a fringe group of outspoken medical professionals who have pushed ivermectin as an alternative to widespread vaccination against coronavirus. McDonald called ivermectin an “effective, safe, inexpensive treatment” in a Aug. 5 Twitter post, and he shared an article by the Jerusalem Post citing a recent study of the drug in Israel......
