Did Charlie Manson try out for the Monkees? All the Supreme Court crap makes me think of nominees or actors trying out for parts. I know weird.

Well the problem is theresa made a deal with her self and 'called it macaroni'

Seeing as Manson is quite dead, that's improbable.

But that was quite a feat for their Thai rescue team

It is kinda nice this way, Dave. You can now see the Scroll On By name at the top of the useless comment.

Christian group AFA backs away from opposing Kavanaugh, agrees to trust PDJT and let things play out.

"AFA has opposed the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S Supreme Court for some very valid reasons. We are deeply concerned about how he might ultimately rule on issues related to abortion and religious liberty. For these reasons, we consider this nomination to represent a four-star appointment when it could have been five-star.

However, after hearing the concerns of some of our supporters, and after hearing the passionate defense of Judge Kavanaugh by many we consider to be friends in the pro-life movement, we are willing to let this process play out. We eagerly await the confirmation hearings when we hope to get clarification from Judge Kavanaugh on aspects related to our concerns.

At this time, we have no plans to fight President Trump on this nomination. He has appointed a lot of good federal judges already and we look forward to many more. We hope that our concerns prove to be unfounded."

If Paul Sperry is correct, this changes pretty much everything we think we know about Spygate and the Mueller SC investigation right?

Remember that movie from back in the late 60's, "Wild In The Streets" where the young protesters lace the drinks of Congress with LSD and the Congressmen all go crazy and the revolutionaries take over?

Well watching the reactions to Judge Kavanaugh of the Dem Congress-critters today I think the movie got it exactly right on the Democratic side of Congress all being strung out on LSD, but they didn't need any revolutionaries to lace their drinks---they just drank the Acid laced Koolaid fed to them by Schumer, Pelosi, Durban, Pocohantis, Bernie Sanders, and Maxine Waters.

And if they had a FISA on Manafort and still never found any Russian collusion, it means Mueller is even more of a scumbag than we thought.

Wasn't the Paul Sperry revelation all the rage back in September? Has it suddenly elevated above "sources say" credibility?

Since most of the speculation has been off of these kinds ff sources in the first place, why wasn't there more 4D emphasis on this story back then?

Someone posted a link a few days ago about revealing images of our nuclear tests (MM?) that I finally had a chance to review.

Here it is again:

http://www.businessinsider.com/new-nuclear-blast-videos-2017-3

So, now the inside story: the first pix were for a test done on June 24, 1957 in Nevada. The test was named Priscilla.

That just happens to be the name of my buddy G’s mom, (several of you have met G). Coincidence? Actually no. She is the niece of the bird colonial that ran the tests and had just joined the Livermore Labs as the first female scientist. G just called to confirm.

Here is my entire question about Manafort:

Who recommended him? I had never heard of the guy and I follow a lot of politics. He also had done business with Podesta.

So, WHO recommended him? Was it Roger Stone, or was Stone just trying to take credit. And apparently (according to the replies to that comment by Sperry) Manafort was recommended by Edwin Cox (married to Tricia Nixon) AND also had worked for McCain.

So, this thing is just chock full of dubious connections and I really would like to know the truth.

A rather curious line from Walter Russell Mead, ENRDV:

Mr. Trump is hard to understand not because he is deep but because he is different.

The certainty of it is what strikes me. It could have easily been writter much more charitably, much more humbly. But no, it has to be written in the style of a nature documentary on NatGeo with some anonymous voice telling us what Seals are thinking as they lounge on the banks of some faraway shore.

Newsflash for Walter Russell Mead: he's a deep thinker *and* different. You might want to put that in your pipe and smoke it. It's not merely that "drama, crisis and risk have been Mr. Trump’s constant companions for many years." Such is the case for many, many successful businessmen and politicians.

I just read an appropriate tweet thread, here's a few:

2. Most people don't understand Trump's strategy because they have swallowed the gaslighting of the media over the last 30 years. Trump hasn't swallowed the gaslighting.

— unseen1 (@unseen1_unseen) July 10, 2018

3. Basically the fact is we are rich. Independently wealthy beyond measure. If you think of the rest of the world in basic economic class terms all the other countries except maybe 10 are poor to middle class.

— unseen1 (@unseen1_unseen) July 10, 2018

4. You have maybe 10 that are considered wealthy (think millionaires)with only one other that could be considered very wealthy (China). China could be seen as a multimillionaire. However the USA is a multibillionaire. The only multibillionaire in the world.

— unseen1 (@unseen1_unseen) July 10, 2018

5. Add in the fact that the millionaires and the multimillionaire owes their income to the multibillionaire USA.

— unseen1 (@unseen1_unseen) July 10, 2018

7. Trump knows this, he isn't embarrassed by it, he doesn't think we should give up our wealth because others aren't as wealthy. He looks at the rest of the countries as he looks at his business dealings. You don't allow the renters to set their rent. You set the rent.

— unseen1 (@unseen1_unseen) July 10, 2018

Apparently, it takes some seriously deep thinking to figure this out given that our entire intelligentsia and political class could not do so.

I haven't heard any ProgTardo outrage over affirmative action and SCOTUS.

what if that's the low-hanging fruit?

after hearing about two veteran and distinguished white male Navy SEALS being dismissed from service (because one allegedly inappropriately touched a female "SEAL" in barracks),and the switch of white women voters to MAGA in the last election--- because their husbands and sons are being clobbered by the anti-white male virus of Obama--- i'd say aa is in the crosshairs and much easier to rule unconstitutional (CalTech's binge of late).

All discussed on first hour of Savage Nation today.

Why did Trump pick a white male hetero Christian with a female wife and more than 1 child?

Big time signal?

This is really comedy gold:

Some liberals are already blaming her for tipping the balance of the Court to the right because she didn't retire during obama's second term to get a guaranteed left leaning young Judge confirmed.


I suspect they are correct because she will be pushing 90 during Trump's second term.

daddy,

I see you saw my post at the end of the last thread. Flat-out PO's me. Zinke is about as hard-working as the President. I follow him on Twitter and he is all over the country visiting parks and lands, encouraging employees, posting explanations on Twitter (today he was explaining for National Cow Appreciation Day why they are glad to let grassland be used for grazing.)

Zinke is a former Navy SEAL. And the other day he was working out in a gym wearing a t-shirt that said "I stand for the flag and kneel for the cross."

So I am enraged at this petty harassment.

Rush read on air the combined wealth of Kavanaugh and I was surprised when Rush mentioned he'll be the poorest of the Supreme's (if confirmed of course) since he's the only one who isn't a millionaire.

Here's El RushBo's short riff on that which he concludes this way:

This is an interesting bearing account of between $15,000 and $50,000, and an account less than $15,000 in Vanguard funds. We’re… This is a net worth, not counting the home, of under $100,000! This guy’s been in Washington his whole life. How do you do that? (interruption) No! He must be incredibly honest! (interruption) What do you mean, “gambling problem”? Don’t say that. This guy’s gotta be incredibly honest to be in D.C. all of these years with this influence and…? This is incredible! It’s worth knowing.

Keith Ellison Won’t Rule Out Democrats Impeaching Supreme Court Justices

I will say that there have been no court judges that have been impeached. And I will say there were some things that came up with Justice Thomas that were very concerning to me in terms of his impartiality, so I agree that it could theoretically happen.

Go for it.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

RTG,

I was going to post that thread by unseen1 in a little while! Mind-meld!

I go back to the whole Queens accent thing. President Trump has had to deal with construction people his entire career. He is used to blunt talk without fancy words. I would like to see some of these "analysts" get through the Wharton School of Finance. HA!

In MY opinion, President Trump has been thinking about the situation in the world for a very long time (at least since the mid-80's). He is a creative thinker, as I learned from reading "Art of the Deal."

The NeverTrumpers despise him because he won't kowtow to them, as he knows they are full of crap. They don't DO anything, just yammer.

I believe he has cultivated this blowhard persona to hide what he is really doing from the evil press. You cannot convince me that Mattis, Pompeo, Perry, Mnuchin, Carson, Zinke, and the rest signed on to someone who was flying by the seat of his pants. And that includes Pence, who is a moral and cautious guy (he was my governor).

Nope. Trump had a plan which he outlined to each cabinet member before they signed on. My gosh, Kay Bailey Hutchison is the Ambassador to NATO! Who would have thought SHE would sign on.

Stealth President is what he is. And the kaboom will be lowered on a lot of people before this is all over with.

Appointees of the POTUS are an extension of the office's elected authority.

Verbal assault, threats of violence with threatening rhetoric and mob behavior in a private establishment or in a publicly funded venue should be dealth with as severely as threats made against the POTUS.

I met a Morkie owner today at the dog park today. The dog, Ethel, wasn't there; instead a dog he's taking care of, Kepler, a young German Shepherd/Huskie mix was there. He started to describe Ethel as a mix of a Yorkshire terrier and a Maltese and I said "a Morkie" and his eyes lit up. She was attacked by some worthless cur at a young age and is afraid of Kepler (who could attack a Morkie?) but otherwise lives a happy life. She's all black and I hope I get a chance to see her.

POTUS reminds me of cranes and other predatory birds that feed on the eggs of the amphibious swamp critters. i'm wondering how many nests he's clearing out with simple administrative blocking, tackling and the old fashioned 3 yards and a cloud of dust approach (High school football metaphor-- the only dust in the NFL is in the Raiders' antiquated Coliseum!)

Tom R

And if they had a FISA on Manafort and still never found any Russian collusion, it means Mueller is even more of a scumbag than we thought.


If the Obama administration had a FISA warrant in place against Manafort before he joined the Trump campaign then that reinforces the speculation that Manafort was a plant who joined the campaign as part of the cabal to eventually destroy Trump. Did Manafort join the Trump campaign to truly help him win the election or was he a part of the cabal intending to destroy Trump from the outset? Due to Manafort's business deals with the Podesta brothers its not really much of a stretch for me to accept the possibility that Manafort knew it would be financially advantageous for him if Hillary won. I can certainly see the GOP Establishment working with Obama to destroy Trump and help Hillary win.

I certainly don't know the answer but if Manafort joined the campaign with the intention of helping the Swamp/DC Establishment destroy Trump, then I'm inclined to believe once Trump took office he learned of Manafort's involvement in the conspiracy. Fast forward to the meeting between Trump and Mueller the day before Mueller was appointed SC. I can imagine one topic that was discussed: Trump informing Mueller he wanted Manafort held accountable for his actions.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Kevlar Kid,

I want arrests as well, as does my local friend Jan. We are sick of this.

NO elected or appointed official should be harassed at their homes or in public places. These are not demonstrations, they are stalking and harassment.

If you want to demonstrate, go to a public park and hold signs and sing or something.

Furthermore, I want people who encourage this, like Maxine Waters, to be charged with inciting a riot.

Hey Stephanie! You ever heard this one. Paw sent to ya via me-oh-my:


AN OLD WOMAN WALKED UP AND TIED HER OLD MULE TO THE HITCHING POST.

AS SHE STOOD THERE, BRUSHING SOME OF THE DUST FROM HER FACE AND CLOTHES, A YOUNG GUNSLINGER STEPPED OUT OF THE SALOON WITH A GUN IN ONE HAND AND A BOTTLE OF WHISKEY IN THE OTHER. THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER LOOKED AT THE OLD WOMAN AND LAUGHED, "HEY OLD WOMAN, HAVE YOU EVER DANCED?"

THE OLD WOMAN LOOKED UP AT THE GUNSLINGER AND SAID, "NO,... I NEVER DID DANCE... NEVER REALLY WANTED TO."

A CROWD HAD GATHERED AS THE GUNSLINGER GRINNED AND SAID "WELL, YOU OLD BAG, YOU'RE GONNA DANCE NOW," AND STARTED SHOOTING AT THE OLD WOMAN'S FEET.

THE OLD WOMAN PROSPECTOR -- NOT WANTING TO GET HER TOE BLOWN OFF --STARTED HOPPING AROUND. EVERYBODY WAS LAUGHING. WHEN HIS LAST BULLET HAD BEEN FIRED, THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER, STILL LAUGHING, HOLSTERED HIS GUN AND TURNED AROUND TO GO BACK INTO THE SALOON.

THE OLD WOMAN TURNED TO HER PACK MULE, PULLED OUT A DOUBLE-BARRELED SHOTGUN, AND COCKED BOTH HAMMERS.

THE LOUD CLICKS CARRIED CLEARLY THROUGH THE DESERT AIR, AND THE CROWD STOPPED LAUGHING IMMEDIATELY.

THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER HEARD THE SOUNDS, TOO, AND HE TURNED AROUND VERY SLOWLY. THE SILENCE WAS ALMOST DEAFENING. THE CROWD WATCHED AS THE YOUNG GUNMAN STARED AT THE OLD WOMAN AND THE LARGE GAPING HOLES OF THOSE TWIN BARRELS.

THE BARRELS OF THE SHOTGUN NEVER WAVERED IN THE OLD WOMAN'S HANDS, AS SHE QUIETLY SAID, "SON, HAVE YOU EVER KISSED A MULE'S ASS?"

THE GUNSLINGER SWALLOWED HARD AND SAID, "NO M'AM... BUT I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO.

THERE ARE FIVE LESSONS HERE FOR ALL OF US:

> 2 - Don't waste ammunition.
> 3 - Whiskey makes you think you're smarter than you are.

Interesting theory, Tom. All we need is the date when the FISA was submitted, if there really was a Manafort FISA. I was assuming it was after he joined Trump but you may be right since he wasn't with the campaign very long.

But why would they need a FISA on a confidential informant? His communications wouldn't need to be intercepted by NSA.

Been back a while from Le Charlot where we had a Belgium v. France watch party with all the French in Southampton. All friends and all very happy as we are very sad. Not. When you have a well played clean game like that and good friends, wine and steak tartare, how can you not feel good.

Proficiat France. Now onto England v. Croatia tomorrow. Don't think it will be as clean as he other game since Croats have fewer BPL teamates on the pitch like France and Belgium did.

I learned from a caller on Savage Nation today, that the Soviet had their own version of affirmative action and it had a Russian name which meant affirmative action.

it was used to bring ethnic minorities into the system to replace "problematic" descendants of the old state who'd crossed over. they weren't trusted so they were pushed out as the soviet state grew in size.

i didn't catch the name. the soviets made the most of our "civil rights" movement, co-opting it to infuse it with their ideology on "equality."

Statement from Caroline Fredrickson, President, American Constitution Society

“President Trump has a radical far right agenda that is out of step with most Americans; the selection of Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee is simply part of that agenda. Kavanaugh was hand selected by the radical right in this country expressly to target laws, freedoms and protections they have been trying to undo for decades. Now the future of women’s reproductive health, our health care system, workers’ rights, access to the voting booth, and environmental safeguards all hang in the balance.

“The Supreme Court is supposed to be the last hope of those seeking justice against powerful and often discriminatory special interests. The next Justice should be someone who will look out for the needs of everyday Americans, not just the powerful and wealthy.

“As the Senate begins hearings on Kavanaugh's nomination, the public should take care not to fall for empty pledges from Trump and the Senate majority that they just want someone who will uphold the Constitution. They should also be wary of fake statements from Kavanaugh that he will just follow settled law or just make rulings based on the merits of the cases before him. No words or pledges can change the fact that this is a pick designed to undo many of the freedoms and protections Americans hold dear.”

The American Constitution Society (ACS), founded in 2001 and one of the nation's leading progressive legal organizations, is a rapidly growing network of lawyers, law students, scholars, judges, policymakers and other concerned individuals dedicated to making the law a force to improve lives of all people.

It was Sandra Day O'Connor who announced in an opinion that affirmative action had a limited shelf life -- correct?

Yes, Davod. From Le Wiki:

The agencies that were either moved entirely or merged in part into ICE included the investigative and intelligence resources of the United States Customs Service, the criminal investigative, detention and deportation resources of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and the Federal Protective Service. The Federal Protective Service was later transferred from ICE to the National Protection and Programs Directorate effective October 28, 2009. In 2003, Asa Hutchinson moved the Federal Air Marshals Service from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to ICE,[9] but Chertoff moved them back to the TSA in 2005.[10]

In her opinion in Grutter v.

Grutter v. Bollinger was decided in 2003. Bakke was from 1978.

I can see that he is still not fired, but I can also see that he has been "Not Operationally Qualified" since right around the time of the incident back in 2016, so my guess is that my Union Dues went into the expensive pockets of some high priced Lawyers to keep him on the payroll and his ass out of jail. My guess that he was/is Hong Kong based was correct. NOQ means he is not currently qualified to fly a plane---almost 2 years now.

Good link, ls. I like Julie Kelly. She's careful about what she states as fact.

Ext,

Yes during Bush's time and the Bush DOJ/FBI actually did the right thing and informed the McCain campaign about Manafort's background with the pro-Russian Ukrainian officials.

Due to his foreign lobbying activities it's quite possible there was an active FISA warrant on Manafort starting during the end of Bush Jr's term and the entirety of Obama's term.

If the Obama DOJ/FBI were spying on Manafort for an extended period of time, then you know good and well they were aware of his $75 million money laundering activities. While the Obama administration did not bring charges against Manafort, knowing how criminally corrupt they are I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Obama DOJ/FBI dangled the threat of indictment as a means to get Manafort to go along with their plan to destroy Trump. Manafort had to believe Hillary was going to win just like everyone else did so he agreed to play his role in the cabal.

That's how I would write the movie script at least.

Steph,

Twitter blocked me for some insane reason. I told them to go to hell.

How many of the Thai SEAL divers were trained here at Coronado? All of them.

I like the part where you have Mueller jumping back and forth between the good guys and the bad guys. Funny stuff.

In the parlance of cricket you have been caught out for 0, asshole. Back to killfile.

Does your new theory mean Podesta is not the target?

That's how I would write the movie script at least.

Aren't there movies where you can change the outcome at the end? That would be so cool for yours.

Let's see the one where Rosenstein is wearing a Superman outfit after he whips off his suit.

Let's see the one where Rosenstein and his family end up destitute after 5 years of crushing legal fees.

Momto2,

Teddy steal Sailor's toys whenever he has a chance. If I see Ethel I'll take a picture. I know about where the family lives.

Sui Generis!

But from a legal and constitutional perspective, Kavanaugh wasn’t saying that the courts should find that the president shouldn’t be investigated or indicted. To the contrary. He was saying that Congress should pass a law ensuring that result, because without it, the president was open to being investigated — and maybe even indicted.

Pause to take that in. If a law by Congress is necessary to fix the problem, it follows that without such a law, it is perfectly permissible under the Constitution to investigate a sitting president, as Starr did.

Conservatives Win Free Speech Fight Against UMass-Amherst

The University of Massachusetts-Amherst has agreed to lift restrictions on the location and duration of speech, ending a legal fight with conservative students.

As previously reported by Campus Reform, Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) objected to a provision of the school’s land use policy, which stipulated that “outdoor speeches and rallies during class hours may be held only on the -west side (main entrance) of the Student Union Building, and shall be limited to one (1) hour in length, from noon to 1:00 P.M.”

The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a legal group representing YAL in court, announced the policy change in a press release late last month, noting that the lawsuit has been dropped in light of the development.

“In response to a student group’s lawsuit, University of Massachusetts Amherst has eliminated its highly restrictive speech policy that limited all ‘speeches and rallies’ to less than one percent of campus and only between noon and 1 p.m. each day,” ADF wrote.

“In light of the changes made by the Board of Trustees as part of a preliminary settlement, Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing the campus chapter of Young Americans for Liberty and student Nicholas Consolini voluntarily dismissed their lawsuit.”
