Nice move by judge. It means the prosecution can't wrap up, let the jury stew on their bs for the weekend, then be dickheads while the defense gets its say. Shuts off a skank move by Team Mueller.

 joan

I don't know why I keep thinking that some judge, any judge, will help our cause -- but I do keep hoping someone will throw out one or all of Mueller's prosecutions.

GUS

That's one of the biggest reasons NEVER EVER EVER to allow a FULL COMMIE to be PRESIDENT ever again.
They pick federal judges. Libs couldn't give a rats ass about the law, it's IDEOLOGOY and WISE LATINA'S.
Meanwhile the people like KAVANAUGH are hated by the FULL COMMIE SHIT STAINS, because of his fidelity to the CONSTITUTION.

BREAKING: Notes from DOJ official Bruce Ohr indicate Steele and Simpson -- aka the Clinton campaign -- were also behind the false rumors that Trump created a "secret server" with Russian-based Alfa Bank through Trump Tower. The hoax sent the FBI on yet another wild goose chase

It's sounding more and more to me like that "Huge Mosaic" that Comey said was the basis for the FISA warrant is total bulls**t. It has always been and remains nothing more than the Dossier that Christopher Steele initially cooked up and with the related BS he later fed to Bruce Ohr via Nellie. The only thing that strikes me as not having come out of Chris Steele's mouth is the Popadoploous nonsense of babbling to the Aussie minister while drunk in London, and that has been shown to be falsely reported and probably orchestrated by the FBI via Halper, etc.

Beasts,

You posted (non Nacht Musik) Mozart at 10:38, which made me go right to my favorite, "Eine Kleine Nacht Musik" which I used to open an Equestrian Music Festival of Freestyle Dressage (that I wrote musical drills for back in the 90's) which was a showcase event of a state Mozart festival -- :).

Listening to it now:

Gus, in 87 I was trying to make baseball fun for my oldest who was 5 at the time. We went to a ton of games that year and figured out that if we'd run to the front row seats between homeplate and the dugout, we'd always get an autograph or two. Before every game, Boggs would stand near homeplate warming up and throw knuckleballs to Romero near the dugout. When they were done, Boggs would head for the fans in the seats there and sign autographs working his way back to the dugout. Quite often, he'd skip right by my son and sign for the pretty girls standing next to him. Great ball player, horrible person IMO!

Is this intersectionality? One of my seafood purveyors (To Table) just sent a link that included the following:

Collusion: Add a dollop of crème fraîche and Siberian caviar to your oysters.

Fake News: Or skip the Russian influence and add a dollop of Salmon roe instead.

😂

Dang Joan. I can still play the bass line from Eine Kliene Nacht Musik, although I no longer have an upright or bow. Our youth symphony did it on a tour of concert halls, gymnasiums, shopping centers, and retirement homes in 75. I've enjoyed every time I hear it.

Yes, Henry, as I typed that post I was listening and it still makes me want to conduct an orchestra and scheme out a drill for 4, 6, or 8 riders to beautiful music. :)

Reposting this bit from AmThinker since it hadn't struck me before:

it's important to bear in mind a key fact regarding Ohr's position that has just recently come to light: in a private letter to Congress Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein -- confronted with these Steele/Ohr emails -- declared he was unaware of Ohr’s activities with Steele. Ohr was “not assigned to the Russia investigation and he was not in the chain of command,” Rosenstein wrote. “Any involvement Mr. Ohr had in this matter was without my knowledge.”

In other words: Ohr's activities could only have been part of an unauthorized campaign by government officials against the President of the United States.

With that in mind, we find Steele reaching out to Ohr, and Ohr responding promptly:

Possibly true, but I'd sooner believe Rosenstein did not want to know, just like he did not need to read the FISA warrant since he knew what was in it. Me and my skeptical self off with the dogs.

Kevlar Kid

Two words about my love for the game of baseball:

Willie Mays.

GUS

Rocco, that's what I know about him. Obviously he's had bad press because of affairs and such, but it's weird and ironic, that I rarely and I mean rarely think of Boggs. If you asked me who the ALL TIME HOME RUN CHAMP IS, I'd answer HANK AARON.
Boggs was a great player, but an asshole. I forget the great player part a lot. I've know a lot of ball players, Paul Molitor being one of them. Some are good dudes, a lot are in arrested development.
In the end it's entertainment, but most of these guys were in love with baseball, long before they got paid to do it.
I played SS in H.S. and I was a pretty good hitter, but a very good fielder. Before me Dad passed suddenly, we were discussing my son's Little league, my boy was a good pitcher and could bring it. My Dad asked me if he had "Soft hands" like me. Boy was I proud. I fielded ground balls for hours and hours if I could get my Dad or brothers to hit. I was always MARK BELANGER or BROOKS ROBINSON. Baseball means a lot to kids.

That plane looks just big enough for about 15 to 25 pantsuits. Apparently the the Pantsuit Museum Society (PMS) made a deal with the Clinton Library to obtain the unique collection. Note the extra fuel tanks.

Ted Nugent said Michigan DWR says doves aren't game birds wtf? He said its legal to take sand hill crane said but you have to bury them. There was some MCD scare up there but he says it's bs. No deer in WI or MI has died of it except when DWR kills them.

Mays was and remained a top base running threat throughout his career.

when i was a kid Paw took me to the morning workouts before Giants day games.

Mays had a standard part of his workout where he'd work the infield in games of pickle.

i'd never see him get tagged.

the highlight was when a throw would get away and he'd run from first to home plate, ending with his patented slide into home --- and end it standing in the leftside of the batter's box to put a finer point on "who's ya daddy, bitchez".

he was always smiling.

maryrose

Beasts:
Ohr: has had a very low profile up to this point.
I think Mueller has muzzled Page, Strzok, McCabe and Comey.
Every time they open their mouth more corruption is exposed.

henry

Pin, I've hunted dove over sunflower fields in central IL. They are legal in WI, but the bag limit is puny. Sand Hills are protected here. (Hell, Canada geese are a limit one per day... like limiting an exterminator to one roach a day). We had 10 years of unlimited doe tags / earn a buck / herd reduction because CWD on game farms. When I moved in id have to wait on 20+ doe strings to cross my driveway before going to work! now I rarely see deer (and wouldn't tell a soul if I did). I have all of the above on my farm. I could wake up and limit out from my bed outside my window if the limits were sane. The Nuge is right, as usual.

Santa Cruz weather right now: 68 and sunny...8mph breeze... one degree warmer than here....bright sunny day.

Jack is Back!

Getting back to some comments on the old thread, even though I live on Lon Gy'land (Bonnecker speak), I have always been a Red Sox fan. Two factors: I followed for years, and still do the Cincinnati Reds, the precursor to the Sox, plus Carl Yazstremski. Out here as a kid, we were Dodger, and Giants fans, although there were some Yankee fans because they came out from the city or CT.

My Dad played amateur baseball against Carl, Sr. The Bridgehampton teams of the 1930's were all Polish potato farmers except for one Anglo-Saxon guy:). Yaz is now 79, and talking to his cousin the other day, he told me he only comes back for family funerals.

My Dad told me that Carl Sr. was a much better ball player than Yaz. I still find that hard to believe and a little self-promotion on his part:)

I’m in @Omarosa’s book on page 149. She claims to have heard from someone who heard from me that I heard Trump use the N-word.

Not only is this flat-out false (I’ve never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn’t even make an effort to call or email me to verify. Very shoddy work.

Kevlar Kid

Saw Rick Monday hit the first homer of the brand new Oakland A's (under Finley) at the spankin new Oakland Coliseum, 410 ft plus over the centerfield wall. Boog Powell offered a quick palm to Monday as he rounded first. Brooks and Frank were there too.

The former Maricopa County sheriff said the two talked for an hour in total, including a lot about illegal immigration.

“So he’s talking and I couldn’t understand him. He’s talking about golden showers. I thought he was talking about — the president has gold [in his shower].”

“And then handjob," Arpaio continued. "What was that? He was talking about illegals coming over working with their hands on their job."

“Then the other thing — the only thing I got was that he would offer me a job. I didn’t hear that little thing before that,” Arpaio said, referring Cohen’s asking him if he would take a blowjob from the president. “I don’t know where that came from.”

During the initial interview, Arpaio appeared to tell Cohen that he would accept a "blowjob" from the president. He also said that "it wouldn't surprise me" if Trump had a golden shower.

Legal question for Clarice or any other lawyer.

What are all the possible legit reasons that Mueller is letting the attorneys who work for him argue the Manafort case instead of him doing it himself? It just seems odd to me that the guy in charge isn't actually participating in the trial.

Clap em in irons

thus, on Thursday, did a federal judge named Emmet Sullivan—and a fine Fenian name it is—tell an airplane to turn the fck around before he clapped JeffBo in irons. From The Washington Post:

"This is pretty outrageous,” U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan said after being told about the removal. “That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her?...I’m not happy about this at all...This is not acceptable.” The woman, known in court papers as Carmen, is a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed this week by the American Civil Liberties Union. It challenges a recent policy change by the Justice Department that aims to expedite the removal of asylum seekers who fail to prove their cases and excludes domestic and gang violence as justifications for granting asylum in the United States.

Kevlar Kid

"Thomas Lifson must be a fan of the Trump 4D Chess Theory."

balderdash.

showmanship is a set of competencies involving messaging to all seven spheres of the human brain, the use of precise misdirections, timing, and humility (keeps one in touch with what it means to be a human bean for the sake of reaching other human beans in lingo that will persuade them), and an understanding of what's called in the biz "hypnotic communication" (not the stare at the gold watch kind of stuff either).

and i'll repeat: POTUS is playing more than a dozen chess games at one time. 4D is a horseshit polarizing distraction amongst the peanut gallery.

that's all.

I have to apologize to RG about my somehow equating Clarence Thomas to Sarah Jeong. It is just the moral equivalency and goal post moving by NY Times and the left is remarkable. The DEms want everything Brett Kavanaugh wrote to castigate him as out of the mainstream and to impeach his judicial philosphy while whatever Jeong spewed does not matter as long as she pushes the current agenda of the left. Reminds me of the wise Latina experience and whatever happened to objectivity and the reason that Lady Liberty is blindfolded?

Lou Brock was a complete baseball player and human being. We'd always angle for tix (from Paw's work buddies) to see the Cardinals...especially when they came to town with Orlando Cepeda--- whom the GIANTS should have never traded for the useless Ray Sadecki.

Brock loved hitting home runs in Candlestick against that wind.

the Cepeda trade was my first betrayal experience in pro sports...the second was when Al Davis traded Phil Villapiano to Buffalo for a wide receiver we dint need.

POTUS is playing more than a dozen chess games at one time. 4D is a horseshit polarizing distraction amongst the peanut gallery.

I'm genuinely perplexed.

You believe Trump's display of mental acuity in defeating his opponents is so great that you compare it to him playing 12 chess games at one time.

I believe Trump's display of mental acuity in defeating his opponents is so great that I refer to it as "4D Chess Theory" (which is a popular internet meme started by Trump supporters on social media).

We are making the same exact assessment of Trump's mental acuity both using a comparison to the most strategically challenging game humans have devised and my usage of an internet meme bothers you?

the origins of the meme? Trump himself is my theory--- but only to ensure he'd not be charged rent for living in Ted Cruz' and the rest of the packs' heads.

POTUS lives and dies in the time/space continuum like other mortals. why over-elevate his abilities? to what end?

the showmanship aspect of his Presidency is the missing weapon for every President since Reagan (an old radio personality) who said "the bombing starts in five minutes" on a hot mic. Accident or well-timed misdirection: look over there while i am getting things done over *here* where it counts.

further--- NOTHING you say or have said "bothers me." getting my finger crushed by a slab of stone last week "bothers me."
