"Masha" Yavonovich: When You Think About It, I'm Just Like the Four Diplomats Being Murdered in Benghazi. I'm a Hero!!!

This is how all civil servants really conceived of themselves.

They're all superheroes. Marvel should make movies about them.

We are people who repeatedly uproot our lives, who risk and sometimes give our lives for this country. We are the 52 Americans, who, 40 years ago this month, began 444 days of deprivation, torture, and captivity in Tehran. We are the dozens of Americans stationed at our embassies in Cuba, and consulates in China whom mysteriously and dangerously, and perhaps in some cases, perhaps even permanently, were injured and attacked from unknown sources several years ago.

And we are Ambassador Chris Stevens, Shawn Patrick Smith, Ty Woods, and Glen Doherty, people rightly called heroes for their ultimate sacrifice to this nation’s foreign policy interests in Libya eight years ago.




"Masha" said she had Teh Sadz because Trump made her move out of "my house."

By "my house," she meant the US-owned ambassador's residence.

This is like Trump whining that impeachment is an effort to kick him out of his house.

My God, CNN would shriek about that.

Julie Kelly googled to find pictures of what "Masha's house" looks like.

Maybe she has Teh Sadz because she used to get to live in a palace:



This is about the earlier "I have the sads" testimony, but it's good:



I think Joel Pollack must be one of those Alt-Right Nazis I keep hearing so much about.

77 Masha is a Russian diminutive for Maria. That isn't the Ukranian ambassadors first name, is it. In the play by Anton Chekov "Three Sisters" Wikileaks describes her as he middle sister, she is 23 at the beginning of the play. She married her husband, Kulygin, when she was 18 and just out of school. When the play opens she has been disappointed in the marriage and falls completely in love with the idealistic Lieutenant-Colonel Vershinin. They begin a clandestine affair. When he is transferred away, she is crushed, but returns to life with her husband, who accepts her back despite knowing what she has done. She has a short temper, which is seen frequently throughout the play, and is the sister who disapproves the most of Natasha. Onstage, her directness often serves as a tonic to the melodrama, and her wit comes across as heroic. Her vitality provides most of the play's surprisingly plentiful humour. She was trained as a concert pianist.

As we've seen with Kelly, Tillerson, Mattis and many others, Trump hires people, gives them orders, and they immediately do the exact opposite thing.

I expect he's told every one of his top people something along the lines of "I want you to clear out problem people. People who aren't team players, or are loyal to the last administration, or who aren't on board with my goals."

At which point they turn around and fire every person who doesn't meet those criteria.

Sending your kid to any Ivy, or near-Ivy (like Georgetown) should count as child abuse.

My grandfather had wanted a boy, and when my mom was born he tried to name her Henry. My grandma wouldn't let him.

He later had a son (named Henry, or course).

Funny thing: He adored my mom and she was his designated successor in matters of business and so forth. He couldn't abide my uncle.

192 It was hard getting good help - as I recall, the main reason Trump fired Chris Christie from his transition team in the early days was that he found out that Christie was loading up the staff with Chris Christie cronies, lackies, and hangers on, regardless of whether they had any particular skills for the jobs they were being given.

198 He's the dog that caught the bus.

I think in a lot of ways, that is true, I honestly do not think he expected to win. But still, the transition is almost 3 months and he has hosts of people to help him out, not all of whom are traitors. And every one of them has seen how the Demcorat presidents clean house and prosper while the Republican ones don't, and suffer as a result. Even if you're a GOPe guy, you can see the wisdom of cleaning out Obama appointees.

Somehow that eluded their advice? Or he rejected it? This really isn't some kind of higher level of intellectual firepower here. It does not take a genius to go "boy, I bet my predecessor, whose policies I need to eliminate and were so caustic to the nation, hired a lot of very bad actors.

Secondly DMV means the department of motor vehicles. It is the worst, most statist place you can end up. No one wants to be there, they only want to get out.

Found an article about it from 2007:

While Stalin led hundreds of students on a march in solidarity with Nixon, authorities in Venezuela were drawing up a law to prevent parents from giving their children names that are invented, difficult to pronounce in Spanish, or exotic.

It was pure coincidence that Stalin Gonzalez, president of the students' federation at the Central University of Venezuela (UCV) in Caracas, led the protest this year in support of Nixon Moreno, the University of the Andes (ULA) student president and an opponent of the government who has spent months in asylum at the Apostolic Nunciature (the papal diplomatic mission).

Politics aside, Venezuela has been overrun in recent decades by people called Max Donald, Engelbert, Cleiderman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Edison and even Superman and Hitler, along with Yesaidu (Yes, I do), Yusnavy (U.S. Navy) and Yusleidy (U.S. Lady), or Taj-Mahal, Temutchin and Hochiminh.

Combinations of parents' names are common, such as Yolimar (Yolanda and Mario), Ramcel (Ramón and Celeste), Ligimat (Ligia and Mateo) and Johenry (Josefina and Henry). Then there are the merely inexplicable, like Derbinson, Naily, Udemixon and Hemeyer, or combinations like Hitler Adonis and William del Espiritu Santo.

Absurd. She's an ambassador. That's it. You know, the job you get appointed to because you're traditionally a political ally of a president and raised money/votes but really don't have the gravitas to hold a truly important role. You greet/liaison with people on behalf of America and mouth the words of the current president who has his hands up your tuckus (so to speak). You're a puppet. That is all. And you get to live large on the taxpayer dime while doing it for the most part.

Oh, it was such a strain and sacrifice. Really? That's the argument? Then leave the damn post. No one is holding a gun to your head because "irreplaceable".

There should be a betting pool on how long it takes before Goldberg goes all-in and says that the GOP has *always* been racist and harboring racist thoughts and he's glad he got away from it.

Because that's where this path leads. He can't do the "everyone is crazy but me" when it includes luminaries who are ten times as accomplished or smart as he is. Roger Kimball could grind this guy up and daintily sprinkle him over some french toast with less effort than it takes Jonah to pick his nose.

Basically Jonah's arguing that Norman Podhoretz, David Horowitz, Victor Davis Hanson etc. are now all brainwashed alt-righters.

He and he alone has remained pure, along with a select band of grifters who only punch to the right.

411 359, Jonah is used to being the one to "other" people via his NR perch and the same with the rest of the crew there. Frum was at least smart enough to make the jump early enough to be accepted at the Atlantic. Jonah waited too long at NR.

He has to know that his rep is now permanently damaged on the right and he will never be trusted again. By failing to make the jump when Frum did, the left will never accept him except as a sideshow. Eventually the media gigs will dry up.

Essentially he is a person without a party and blames Trump for his ills. His desperate hope is that Trump goes down and he can reclaim his influence via I told you so. Social ostracism stings and he would not be the first to crumble into lashing out. His acceptance of what is essentially propaganda money would have to further cognitive dissonance between his "principles" and his act of selling out. He is blaming Trump for the person he has become and perhaps always was deep down.

Kristol was never part of the right to begin with. I think he believed that he was the next incarnation of Henry Kissenger except without a Sov. Union to fight anymore. When Quayle went down, he went into influence peddling along with Kagan, Nuuland, McCain, etc. for an imperial U.S. project.

Someone on either Hannity or Ingraham predicted that last night.

The tool they needed to implement was "emotion", so they wanted more crying by the ambassador because OrangeManBad recalled her.

422 >>>The Madison River in Montana is legendary for fly fishing.<<<

If you were more at-one with the River that Runs Thru It, you'd catch more fucking fish. Or maybe, as a tourist, you've been sold a bill of goods.

423 Typical ambassador. All so full of themselves. Never accomplished anything but think they are the best of the best. Never met one who was worth two cents. I could have been rich if I could have sold them for what they thought they were worth and bought them for what they were worth.

424 Wait a minute.

First. Benghazi didn't happen.
Second, it's a punchline. Anybody who says anything about it is such a joker and an idiot we're supposed to laugh at him.
Third, what difference does it make at this point.
She should try to keep up.
Maybe the Clintons will have her jailed or something.

425 Thanks, Ace, for slapping the faces of several million men and women who serve in every agency in the federal government whose job it is is to carry out the mission and the tasking of their respective agency with this statement: "This is how all civil servants really conceived of themselves."

No, Ace, it's not how the vast majority of us see ourselves. The Bell Curve all by itself should predict that.

Now, if you want to argue that civil service appointees see themselves that way, fine. Or, if you want to say that the senior executive service level cadre fantasizes themselves heroes, I'd also argue that their military counterparts at the flag level should be included in that sweeping generalization.

Frankly, I think Trump would do well to take off that top layer in every agency, and even disestablish some agencies.

But to insult every single one of us in the federal government is a dick move, Ace. Frankly, it's something I'd expect from a lib/prog.

426 As an Army veteran, I'm disgusted by her desire to make State Dept personnel look like heroes. In Iraq, you needed a crowbar to get the State Dept personnel away from the pool and luxurious cafeteria. They wouldn't move out of the Green Zone without a 6 vehicle, US Army soldier escort.
Heroes, my ass.
