... they figured Hillary would win ..

Yes. Combined with 8 years of protection from the Obama DOJ, and the belief that this was the new norm, many of them became very careless.

Now, with the levers of judicial power in the hands of their self-avowed enemies, they are suddenly realizing that the laws the once made light of, may soon be applied to them. They should be worried.

daddy, Susan Rice is the "unmasker." If she ever testifies, I expect her to lie confidently about her activities. Lois Lerner got away with murder; like Hillary!, Rice is more experienced and will get away with more. Her excuse was "saving the country."

Lou plays a video clip of Obama from last night, saying this:

Obama; ...I want to uhh uhhhhhhhhhhh be quiet a little bit, and not hear myself talk so darn much...

Lou Dobbs: Let me assure the former President, most Americans definitely join you in your desires to be quieter and for you to be heard far, far less, and for you to show every bit as much respect for the President who succeeded you as President George W Bush did for you.

“I made a determination that I believed that it was unlawful." - Sally Yates

Sally Yates Was Fired For Deeming Trump’s Travel Ban Unlawful. She Doesn’t Regret It.

Dems really utilize their Attorney Generals...whether at the DOJ or State Attorney Generals.
Marriage was redefined because State Attorney Generals that were Dems refused to defend their state laws & constitutions.
They just abandoned their JOBS.

daddy

The reason I'm more behind than normal is I had my Physical with EKG today, and it was scheduled a bit late, and I didn't want to raise my blood pressure thru the roof listening to Rush or Yates, and I didn't want to mess up my eyes squinting at JOM, (since I have to beat the eye Exam), so I went to the gym instead, then drank tons of water and decaf Green Tea (since you have to also give a specimen.)

Thumbs up! My Flight Surgeon has a sort of hangar he operates out of and today there were 4 dogs in his office, 3 in the back, (2 Jack Russell Terriers and a mutt), and a big beautiful Malamute in the front section where we patients sit. The beautiful Malamute was 'Atlas,' big as a horse, but he slobbered all over me sniffing Fry and Scout, and examining Nelson's bite wounds on my arms. I doubt it's sanitary, but what a great way to run a medical office and put nervous patients at ease---puppy dogs!

2 Jack Russell Terriers

Captain,

One was 10 years old and one was 12 weeks old, so an insane puppy. Doc had set up a small new machine where the dog drops a ball in and the machine shoots the ball across the room so the pups can play ball toss by themselves. That was fun to watch. The little maniac had not figured out how it worked yet, but the old JR had it down pat.

The WSJ had an excellent front page article on those maniacs about 20 years ago. They start to settle into being merely hyper at 10. They frighten elephants. Dear God they can be irritating.

JR Terriers (or mutt JR Terriers)were all over the neighborhood where I grew up. They were wonderful, smart "front yard" dogs, back in the day when people let their dogs run free.

We ran in packs - kids & dogs.
Maybe they are hard for a house dog, but they were great out in the wide world.

GUS

My sister had a Jack Russell, peed on my couch too many times. How on earth do those dogs have so much energy. We need GUBMINT money to find out, then get our GREEN cars to run on JACK RUSSELL FUEL.

ACLU Lawyer Says Travel Ban ‘Could Be Constitutional’ if Enacted by Hillary Clinton

So if Hillary (God forbid) had won, and had instituted this ban, and then in 2020 Trump was Elected and enforced this ban she had instituted, it would suddenly have become "Un-Constitutional?

Can we do that retroactively then, and eliminate Social Security since it was put in place by FDR who Un-Constitutionally jailed American citizens during WW2?

Why not?

What other Laws would be Constitutional under one President but Un-Constitutional under another President? Can the ACLU give us a list?

narciso

Heh, I thought I had my hands full with one yorkie pup, which I probably do.

Momto2

Where we boarded our horses for a time was also a Jack Russell rescue. They had dozens of them and the genius old guy who worked with them had them trained to a T. At feeding time, he would open their kennels and they would line up like kids at a boarding school. No dog touched their food as he went down the line, setting a full bowl in front of each one. He would either say, "Ok kids - eat up!!" and they would all rush to begin eating. Some days, he would call them by name and they would only eat as he said, "Rudy - you can eat now!" as the others watched him intently waiting for their turn.

He was, to me, a real dog whisperer. They are smart dogs and like challenges and learning tricks. They are often found at horse barns and seem to be a favorite breed of English riders.

Oh my goodness. How sad.

GUS

Daddy, all laws are either Constitutional or Unconstitutional depending on whether COMMIE/LIBTARDS have the POWER to decide.
Gorsuch was THE BULLET that America dodged.
Bill Owens was right in his assertion that COMMIE/LIBS will be the victim of their own DEVICE. It WILL come to pass. And it will come to pass if we are lucky. Otherwise, we become the SOCIALIST/COMMIE MESS that caused millions upon millions of innocents, to die in the 20th century.
COMMIE/MARXIST/LIBTARDS are the ARSONISTS that DESTROY, lives, souls, nations, cultures and liberty, because of their INABILITY to SUCCESSFULLY lead and prosper.
FORCE is their RELIGION.
Like the abusive husband, who slaughters the wife who left him, Commie/Marxist/Libtards scorch the earth, that they cannot control nor command.

This is cool! Queen Elizabeth at 91 years of age is still able to drive her own Jaguar, whereas our Queen Hillary, who hasn't driven since 1996, can hardly get in a car:

Queen spotted at the wheel of her
Jaguar on the way back from church

The Queen learned to drive while serving as a mechanic in the Women’ s Auxillary Territorial Service during the Second World War.

Despite her prowess, the monarch is the only person in the UK who is allowed to drive without a license.

She is also the only person apart from park rangers who is allowed to drive down the 2.6-mile Long Walk in Windsor.

Compare that to Queen Hillary: Clinton hasn't driven a car since 1996

Hillary Rodham Clinton admitted she hasn't driven a car since her husband's first term.

"The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996," Clinton said Monday in remarks to the National Automobile Dealers Association in New Orleans. "I remember it very well. Unfortunately, so does the Secret Service, which is why I haven't driven since then."

"I have to confess: One of the regrets I have about public life is that I can't drive anymore."

Anybody believe that bilge?

Me neither.


GUS

Daddy, I think she meant, that she hasn't driven since 1996, and the FUCKING SECRET SERVICE can KISS HER 2 AXE HANDLE WIDE ASS.
My boy GUS, completely understands the CONCEPT, that..........ANYTIME a LIBTARD SPEAKS....he/she or HESHE is lying.
And I mean that LITERALLY. Every sentence, claim or declaration a LIBTARD says/makes, has been parsed and designed for MAXIMUM LY-AGE. 24/7/365. It's pathological.
It's American Taquiya. (sp).
Daddy, it's the POLITICAL equivalent of "PARADISE BY THE DASH BOARD LIGHTS".
"I started swearing to my GOD and on my Mothers' grave, that I would love her for the rest of my life"

daddy

GUS,

Imagine how dangerous Hillary would be behind the wheel of a car?

On the plus side tho,' imagine if she was the designated driver for Susan Sarandon and the other gal:

3 birds, 1 stone.

Gentlejim....Hello!!, Daddy, I thought of Rodham and Huma going over the cliff when I posted. Gentlejim, the level of mental dysfunction and unbridled hate on the left was always there for all to see, it's just become completely unleashed and FASHIONABLE to be as such. HATEFUL that is.
I loved Rodhams bullshit about "Russian-Wikileaks" being one of her "downfalls". She has been coached and focus grouped to say such utter PAP. Rodham isn't smart enough to make that SHYTE UP.
Rodham is a PRIME EXAMPLE for WHY the current 2 generations of MILLENIALS and younger, have ZERO INTROSPECTIVE abilities.
Not able to see themselves as to blame or be responsible.
I've seen many many takes on the PIG...Rodham claiming to "TAKE RESPONSIBILITY" For FUX SAKE, taking responsibility requires some sort of penalty or sanction.
I've said it HERE for YEARS.

I...GUS...take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for the HOLOCAUST!!! Oh, and I take responsibility for MT ST HELEN'S global warming!!!!!

Hello GUS. How you doing, friend? I asked earlier, but typhuspad ate it.

You know Gentlejim!! I'm doing well, and every battle I live is NOTHING compared to others. I hope you are well too.
I've had a stressful time at my job, BUT, The Lord has blessed me, and I should be more grateful. My life is good. Way too good to bitch.
How are you??

Gentlejim

I'm doing well. Work is insanely boring right now, but that'll change in a couple weeks when the crazy people come back. My life is good also. I'm healthy besides my neck as far as I know. My wife and kids are also healthy as well. Bitching doesn't help, GUS because nobody on this rock is listening.

GUS

Dear Lord Gentlejim, if that isn't the truth.
I've relied on friends and loved ones, and Jim, trust me, I have MANY, to advise me on the things that I need advise.
Henry, OUR OWN Henry, is one of those friends.
I do well. I'm #1 at what I do. REALLY BIG FISH, small pond. I've talked to my CORPORATE GENIUS...."BETTERS". I've dialed 911 and asked for the FIRE DEPARTMENT. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Take care GUS. Backbto work for me.

GentleJim, I'm a pretty basic Man, with strong work ethic and HIGH I.Q.. I'm as good a SALESMAN as exists. I have a good sized ego, but I'm relatively humble. I've come to realize, that I can make a GOOD LIVING, and be shyte upon and taken for granted...OR....I can weigh my options and offer my services to larger PONDS.
I'm tired and somewhat burned out, but I am in the drivers seat. My ONLY concern in life, is my son's future, and my beautiful wife's security.
I had a father/son hour long chat with my BELOVED SON, Saturday night. I told him to VALUE WHO and what he is. And to NEVER EVER.....SELL himself short.
I love, LOVE, LLLLLLLLLLLOVE, being a "Daddy".

Insty links to an Althouse piece asking questions about Tiffany Trump going to Georgetown Law School.

Insty posts this comment from an Althouse commenter:

Brenna Gautam, a first-year law student, said that security was among the primary concerns raised by her fellow classmates on Monday on a private Facebook group for Georgetown law students: “How will this impact our peers who may be personally threatened by her father’s policies?” Ms. Gautam asked, referring to gay and transgender students, and students who are minorities.

My response would be that if anyone at Georgetown makes Tiffany Trump feel as "personally threatened" as these snowflakes pretend to be personally threatened by Trump's policies, I would sue the living s*** out of them, and the University.

Clarice, following up re: Yates and Clapper, they could claim "of course I wasn't an anonymous source, I told the person who I was and I did not request anonymity. I have no personal knowledge of how my comments were used afterwards."

Sounds silly but these people are ridiculous.

Or, they could have talked to an intermediary (fall guy) who then blabbed to the press. Grassley should have asked if they discussed these matters with anyone at all, and if so, whom.

A bit on Bob Owens at Bearing Arms - https://bearingarms.com/jenn-j/2017/05/09/we-are-diminished/

I can remember reading the Confederate Yankee blog long ago.

TownHall's bio -
"Bob Owens
Biography
Bob Owens is the Editor of BearingArms.com. A long-time shooting enthusiast, he began blogging as a North Carolina native in New York at the politics-focused Confederate Yankee in 2004. In 2007 Bob began writing about firearms, gun rights, and crime at Pajamas Media, and added gun and gear reviews for Shooting Illustrated in 2010. He is a volunteer in the Appleseed Project, where he shares stories of our shared American heritage and teaches traditional rifle marksmanship. He is an alumni of Gunsite Academy (250 Pistol). His personal blog is bob-owens.com, and he can be found on Twitter at bob_owens."

Captain Hate

From Clarice's link (or the NR search function after being told the article doesn't exist):

Blaming a deer-in-the-headlights FBI director James Comey is equally problematic. His passive-aggressive pronouncements irrationally first exonerated her, then did not, then did again. Faulting the FBI for her own likely felonious behavior of sending and receiving classified communications on an unsecured server (or of Bill Clinton’s trying to leverage Attorney General Loretta Lynch on an airport tarmac) is sort of like blaming the defeat at Pearl Harbor on the Japanese — true, but hardly the whole story given America’s responsibility for its own unpreparedness

Am I the only person who thinks that's a very odd comparison?

James D

henry, you're exactly right. One of the comments to the Watt's Up piece says it very clearly:

Australia is only doing what the UN demands of developed countries. Closing down its industry to the (temporary) benefit of developing countries thereby over the medium term bringing its living standards down to an acceptable (to the UN) level.

UN-favored nations, which at the moment are mainly the BRICS, will be allowed to continue their polluting habits until the developed world has deteriorated sufficiently. What exactly the plan is after that is still hard to discern in the mists but I’m sure there is one somewhere.
