"You just put your lips together and...blow."

There is a second potential whistleblower.
A second intelligence official who was alarmed by President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine is weighing whether to file his own formal whistle-blower complaint and testify to Congress, according to two people briefed on the matter.

The official has more direct information about the events than the first whistle-blower, whose complaint that Mr. Trump was using his power to get Ukraine to investigate his political rivals touched off an impeachment inquiry. The second official is among those interviewed by the intelligence community inspector general to corroborate the allegations of the original whistle-blower, one of the people said.
Dan Coats? Sue Gordon? Courtney Elwood? The name John Bolton has been tossed out, but the NYT implied that the person in question is still part of the intel community. Besides, the National Security Adviser isn't really a member of that community.

In all likelihood, we're dealing with another CIA personage whose name remains unknown to we mere mortals.

My advice is BLOW, BABY, BLOW! I know that the second whistleblower's name will eventually come out, and that he or she will be subjected to the worst possible character assassination. But that person will also go down in history as an American hero.

Maybe this new whistleblower will bring up the name Kolomoisky. Yes, I'm still focused on him. We all have our obsessions, do we not?

Pence. I am not happy to see Mike Pence become the secondary focus of the Ukraine scandal. Look, I've worked very hard for years now to help Pence attain his rightful place as the second-worst president in American history. I refuse to be deprived of a spectacle that I worked so hard to see.

Crank calls. My takeaway from this WP story is that those closest to Trump have had enough. Otherwise we would not have this information.
In one of his first calls with a head of state, President Trump fawned over Russian President Vladimir Putin, telling the man who ordered interference in America’s 2016 election that he was a great leader and apologizing profusely for not calling him sooner.

He pledged to Saudi officials in another call that he would help the monarchy enter the elite Group of Seven, an alliance of the world’s leading democratic economies.

He promised the president of Peru that he would deliver to his country a C-130 military cargo plane overnight, a logistical nightmare that set off a herculean scramble in the West Wing and Pentagon.

And in a later call with Putin, Trump asked the former KGB officer for his guidance in forging a friendship with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un — a fellow authoritarian hostile to the United States.
The following could possibly give us some clue as to who the second Whistler may be.
Joel Willett, a former intelligence officer who worked at the National Security Council from 2014 to 2015, said he was concerned both by the descriptions of a president winging it, and the realization that the president’s behavior disturbs and frightens career civil servants.

“What a burden it must be to be stuck between your position of trust in the White House and another obligation you may feel to the American people to say something,” he said.
Yeah. Lotta that going around, Joel.

Obviously, Willett is not the person mentioned in the NYT story. But...maybe it's the person who took over Willett's job? Incidentally, Willett's Twitter feed is pretty interesting: He's also a wannabe rock star. In response to the claim that the Biden family profited from Joe Biden's position, Willett tweeted:
Meanwhile, Pence’s boss hasn’t released tax returns, foreign leaders are lining his pockets with hotel stays, he and his sons have made millions off of the secret service, Air Force is mysteriously booking nights at Turnberry, Ivanka’s China trademarks. They think we’re stupid.
Uncovering Qanon. This is disturbing...
A significant Australian proponent of the QAnon conspiracy theory is a family friend of Scott Morrison, and his wife is on the prime minister’s staff.
In Australia, one of the more significant QAnon figures tweets under the handle @BurnedSpy34 and has amassed 21,000 Twitter followers in just over a year. BurnedSpy tweets daily QAnon material, including bizarre theories about Alexander Downer and Julie Bishop.

The Guardian has learned the identity of BurnedSpy and established he is a longstanding family friend of the Australian prime minister and his wife, Jenny.

The wife of BurnedSpy works on the prime minister’s staff.
Australia, how did you let this happen to you? How did you let this kind of fascist filth rise to the top of your admirable society?
QAnon and Scott Morrison. You got to it before I could Joseph. Morrison is a Pentecostalist, ignorant and always angling for social acceptance just like Trump. He's introducing an Act to limit discrimination against religious believers, denied global warming and recently spoke at the UN disparaging global political solutions. He has taken to drug-testing welfare recipients where those who fail have 75% of their welfare income quarantined on a debit card run by a company tied to his political mates, with only approved purchases allowed. He stigmatizes the unemployed and is a full-on fuckwit who believes his own hype. He recently won an election (against all the polls) which showed signs of covert political advertising and dodgy tricks. The architect of that win was a guy called Isaac Levido who is now working with another Aussie buddy, Sir Lynton Crosby, head of the electoral campaigning for the UK Conservative party and Boris Johnson. Crosby has been called up by a UK parliamentary committee to answer questions about running a propaganda network on Facebook on behalf of foreign states and major corporate clients. Morrison is a Trump mini-me with divine aspirations. In short, an ignorant fool of the worst kind.
