May Mueller fry Trump's gonads may just be another way to say God is great. Did anyone ask McCain?

Jack is Back!

If you google map Paul's gated community neighborhood, you will not find any poorly maintained landscaping. They are nice estates with pools, hard and soft landscaping and well maintained lawns.

But that would be asking too much of a journalist hell bent on developing and maintaining the Prog narrative.

Porchlight

What is Boucher being charged with?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Justifiable attempted homicide.

Jack is Back!

Jeebus,

The sausage factory workers just played the race card in support of an amendment to preserve the Historic Tax Credit in colloquy between Crowley and Sewell if it would also include former slave quarters. Now if the sausage workers on the right side of the conveyer vote against that amendment they are racists.

They can't stoop any lower.

Captain Hate

Is the DoJ supposed to get involved with an attack on a Senator? The Feds were crawling all over Saint Gabby's hole in her head.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

One has to wonder what Scalise's shooter would have been charged with had he lived; mawicious mischief?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Brings up all sorts of questions; how many years would a guy have faced for refusing an order to go look for the deserter Berghdahl?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

How many years would Dick Cheney have gotten for walking out of the national archives with documents filling his socks and tighty whiteys?

I put this on the dead thread and now I'm reposting it, because that's how some of us at JOM roll:

--Is he working this job as hard as he worked for his own business? --

The man just pulled off a $250 billion dollar trade deal with China and an $8 billion dollar trade deal with Japan. That's the very definition of business. At one time the business of the United States was business. (I'm old enough that I remember when politicians used to say that and say it proudly). Now the business of the United States is big government, which is why we're trillions in debt and suffering from a huge trade deficit.

These trade deals are at the core of MAGA. You want a fundamentally changed America--this is what it looks like. Energy independence, the return of manufacturing (high paying jobs), creating wealth.

One of the fundamental flaws of liberalism is that its proponents have never grasped the basic concept that in order to redistribute wealth you first have to create it.

Beasts of England

He was charged with the unsuccessful killing of a Nazi, amirite?

henry

That Boucher guy pled innocent. 4th degree assault or whatever. At a minimum he needs to be wiped out in a civil suit.

2 minute duda

WSJ reporting that Trump and Economic council director,Gary Cohen hate the House tax bill. I love Trump....he just betraysd EVERYBODY ALL THE TIME.


FROM WSJ:"President Donald Trump moved to assuage centrist Democratic senators' concerns about the House Republican tax overhaul by telling them the Senate version will be more to their liking, in comments that risk muddying the GOP's effort to get a bill passed.

"You're going to like it a whole lot more," said Mr. Trump of the Senate version, according to two people who attended a Tuesday gathering of Democratic senators that Mr. Trump called into"

And Gary Cohen told Dems "Don't get too hung up on the House bill".


They won't.

-peter from my phone

I heard on the radio this am that the Menendez jury may have to be disbanded bc one juror has vacation plans. An alternate would take the slot but they would have to start over

The duda who assaulted and injured Sen Paul was a fucking pussy. All libtards are cowards.

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

Boucher is a doctor. He needs to at least lose his license to practice.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Isn't William of Occam telling us if a publicly shrieking progtard tackles a well known conservatarian like Paul from behind it's probably not the result of lawn clippings?

Saudis being urged to get out of Lebanon? Oil market getting pretty nervous.

Very puzzling.

Kevlar Kid

So Paul's alleged cross-pollenizing with his neighbor's bride is true?

If so, I wonder if Paul will suck it up and let it go.

His standing as a Senator.... i don't know how I'd feel about Paul being able to unleash hell on his naybuh above and beyond what he could do to the guy if Paul was just a greasy guy shaggin' the dude's wife.

Paul aint got a leg to stand on according to my most recent version of The Laws of My Jungle.

I've had to dive off balconies to escape reprisals of angry hubbies. That was all part of my drunken former life. Was shot at. Got smacked in the shoulder with a L'ville Slugger. I never pressed charges though.

Had it comin'. I never had to do that to anybody because my first wife was slick about her transgressions. (I did have loads of concrete delivered to her suitors' cars when I was suspicious-- twice. Plausible deniability on both parts.) But never resorted to bodily harm. Too delicate of a line.

henry

Kev, the neighbor is divorced. ie no wife for Rand to shag.

Captain Hate

I wonder how the MFM would react to six broken ribs administered to Jake Tapper or F Chuck? Or Schmucky Schooooooomer or Dick Durbin?

POTUS should fire back: "I'm sure the pallet-loads of US taxpayer cash Iran got from Obama will help them in the coming war." (ya I know--- too big for a tweet).

Porchlight

So Paul's alleged cross-pollenizing with his neighbor's bride is true?

Evidence?

GUS

The Rapist waited until several hours after Kathleen Willey's husband was dead, before he sexually assaulted her.

Kevlar Kid

Any strength Iran has to fight a non-proxy war with Saudi Arabia comes out of the "Deal."

Don't know if it's changed but for a good 15 years Iran couldn't refine it's domestic gasoline and diesel supplies.

"Who fired them Tommy Hawks, Elrod?"

Porchlight

Add to it that Paul's party is in power, so taking out a Senator could result in real impact to the nation.

So it would be like a Tea Partier assaulting a powerful Dem senator just before the Obamacare bill came up.

Of course, plain old assault and battery is bad enough.

I agree the Feds should be involved.

Thanks for the Surbur link Clarice.

Had forgotten about 41's "New World Order" speech. At the time, nobody was giving much thought to the downside.

Posted by: Buckeye | November 09, 2017 at 08:14 AM

It can't be mere coincidence a major speech on the New World Order and the Iraq War was delivered before a joint session of Congress:

Address Before a Joint Session of the Congress on the Persian Gulf Crisis and the Federal Budget Deficit

https://bush41library.tamu.edu/archives/public-papers/2217

*and* was delivered on 9/11 . . . can it ???

Kevlar Kid

Dunno, Porch.

Was asking because it was brought up here the other day.

Personally haven't seen anything.

Would hate for it to be true though.

Doesn't reflect well on an otherwise ethical projection of himself.

Kevlar Kid

Assaulting legislators.... there need to be penalties which make that unthinkable.

Kevlar Kid

That settles that, henry. Thanks.

GUS

Did you see the picture of Duda Boucher??? I'm not saying he looks fruity, but....

Old Lurker

"Assaulting legislators.... there need to be penalties which make that unthinkable."

Not so fast there Kev. Many of us here think of that all the time.

I'm thinking of it right now.

Kevlar Kid

anon- who is doing the "urging" for Saudis to get out of Lebanon?

henry

Kev, there need to be penalties which make that unthinkable. They think they are above us as it is. Just enforce the laws on the books with vigor.

Good news!

TSA improved it's rate of detecting weapons and explosives from 95% failure two years ago to missing only 80% of them recently!

Think of that next time they are abusing you on the way to your gate.

Story at Market Watch quoting Al Arabiya:

Oil prices touched fresh session highs on Thursday following a report from Al Arabiya that Saudi Arabia has urged its nationals to leave Lebanon immediately. "There is a rumor Saudi Arabia is pulling their citizen out of Lebanon. So there is speculation they are going to mount an attack," said Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at Price Futures Group. December West Texas Intermediate crude CLZ7, +0.63% added 44 cents, or 0.8%, to trade at $57.25 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange after tapping a high of $57.47. January Brent crude LCOF8, +0.61% added 33 cents, or 0.5%, to $63.82 a barrel on ICE Futures Europe after a $64.03 high.

GUS

Yeah OL, but they've gotten much better at detecting my package and the prolly have a dossier on it.

henry

Whatever money the government, through it's benevolence, lets you have belongs to unions. If you were wondering what the Dems' "Better Deal" was all about. (They at first forgot that money is granted from the govt, to unions for recycling to our bettors' bank accounts, and only then to mere subjects).

Captain Hate

Tammy Bruce is doing Fox News Radio (I think it's Todd Starnes regular show from now until 3) and she sounds cranked.

James D.

So it would be like a Tea Partier assaulting a powerful Dem senator just before the Obamacare bill came up.

Tea partiers were (falsely) accused of spitting at Democrat lawmakers after the passage of Obamacare, and even though it never happened, the Dems still talk about it seven years later - and the GOP still apologizes for it.

Republican lawmakers are savagely beaten and shot at by self-professed Democrat activists, and the Dems don't need to apologize, and the GOP just shuts up about it because complaining about the other side resorting to deadly violence is "not who we are"

Captain Hate

henry, that's part of the Restraining Order's reelection push to get back the labor Trump supporters.

James D.

Assaulting legislators.... there need to be penalties which make that unthinkable.

There are already perfectly good laws concerning penalties for beating the crap out of your neighbor and putting him in the hospital with broken ribs.

We don't need any special new laws that officially make the lives of people in DC more valuable than the lives of the people who pay their salaries.

henry

CH, big part of Tammy Baldwin's reelection push as well. Along with burying any news out of the VA in Tomah.

Captain Hate

henry, I don't know who is running against Baldwin, but if Josh Mandel can't convincingly point out that taxpayer money shouldn't be used to pay back internally squandered funds of an organization, for which there are legal options, then he's not the right man for the job. This is an area where the GOP frequently steps on their dicks, so it's time to find out what Josh is made of.

4th degree assault in KY is a Class A misdemeanor. Not sure if the prosecution could up the charges to aggravated assault given the circumstances (most likely not).

Surprised that the FBI or USCP hasn't gotten involved at this point.

and in my catch up, I agree with Captain Hate on the other thread regarding Appalled's comments about Obama and Trump's apparent laziness. I'll add that the worse type of person to have around is the hard working incompetent-especially an incompetent who has no idea how incompetent he is.

A big difference I think is that Obama surrounded himself with 3rd rate minds whom fluffed Obama's below average intellect. He is a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better diplomat than his foreign service and all that. Trump surrounds himself with winners, delegates authority to them, but makes the big decisions.

Well if the hooker that stole the agents watch looked like the blonde porn star hanging off Bill Clinton's arm, completely understandable:)

Dr. "Put his lights out" Boucher is guilty of a hate crime.

Take him off the streets.

CH, so far vs Baldwin: some guy Nickelson ("former" Dem from Madison) and Leah Volkmir (state senator from Brookfield) are in the primary. Of course that dbag Bannon is all for Nickelson, no clue of what Volkmir has done. (Like push Walker to cut taxes more often, push on right to work, etc).

David, Internet Deplorable

Just catching up with the stuff people were talking about this morning. I have to say, I really really don't understand why people find this difficult to understand. Donald Trump is a buffoon, a card-carrying oaf without an ounce of either sense or class. His entire career in real estate in New York has been unanticipated windfall after another, as he bumbled from success to success due to no particular cleverness or skill on his part, but from an almost unbelievable run of good fortune.

One must grant him a certain low cunning and understanding of the lowest common denominator among the population, which accounts for his success as a reality TV star—much like a carnival barker pandering to the rubes in the hinterlands, Trump pandered to the baser instincts and crude impulses of his viewers and so managed to win for himself a large following among the least intelligent and most easily manipulated sector of our citizens.

It was emotion-laden appeal to the prejudices, xenophobia, and ignorance of these same people that allowed him to gain a political following, a following which, ironically enough, allowed him to be elected president only because of the magnifying effect of a media that provided him with trillions of dollars in free exposure through unthinking and uncritical news reporting, and by providing him with a platform from which to use his well-honed carnival barker skills to whip his ignorant followers into an emotional frenzy whose strength managed to carry him over the finish line into the Presidency.

Since becoming president, he has not demonstrated the slightest hint of ability, but instead, like a drunken sailor, reels from crisis to crisis, yet somehow, his amazing run of good fortune continues, and he manages to turn each setback to his own advantage.

At least that is what my inner liberal tells me. Please feel free to apply sarcasm indicators liberally to the previous message.

An F.B.I. counterterrorism supervisor is under internal investigation after a woman stole his gun following a night of heavy drinking in a North Carolina hotel, according to documents and government officials.

In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.’s international terrorism section, had his Glock .40-caliber handgun, a $6,000 Rolex watch and $60 in cash stolen from his room at the Westin hotel in Charlotte, N.C., according to a police report. . . .

Mr. Manson and other senior agents were in Charlotte for training, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the episode. The agents later told the police that they had been drinking with women who said they were exotic dancers, according to a second person who was briefed on the investigation but, like the first, was not authorized to discuss it publicly.

“Investigators determined that the victim, Robert Manson, met a woman in the hotel bar the prior night and took her back to his hotel room,” Robert Tufano, a spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, said in a statement.

At 6:30 the next morning, police officers for the department were called to the hotel. Mr. Manson was incapacitated because of alcohol, according to the police report, which he did not file himself. A fellow agent, Kevin Thuman, gave the report, which says the theft happened from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. The hotel bar closes at 2 a.m.

So not only is the FBI corrupt and untrustworthy these days, it's also staffed by morons who have all the self-control and good judgment of one of the characters from "Animal House."

David, Internet Deplorable

James D,

I think you are being unfair to frat boys. They would have been smart enough to secure their wallets and guns before boffing some random lady of the night they picked up in the hotel bar.

From that WAPO article:

"Neither Corfman nor any of the other women sought out The Post. While reporting a story in Alabama about supporters of Moore’s Senate campaign, a Post reporter heard that Moore allegedly had sought relationships with teenage girls."

Fine.

Let's go further. Every federal government employee - from Senators on down to janitors - should be forced out of their job immediately if there are any credible accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior - no matter how long ago they happened, whether or not they were reported to the authorities - against them.

If it's wrong, it's wrong. If it disqualifies Moore from running for a Senate seat, it should disqualify sitting Senators, and anybody else on the public payroll.
