Found the new thread. Just couldn’t think of anything to say. ;-)

The Hill article on the DOJ blocking FBI officials from testifying before the Senate includes the following paragraph.

President Trump initially pinned the firing on Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation, but later allowed that the probe into his campaign’s ties to Russia was on his mind when he made the decision — sparking allegations that he was trying to stifle the investigation.

I've been away today so if this has been covered pls forgive me, but I don't recall exactly when the President amended his reasons for firing Comey to include his inquiry into the Russia matter. The WH Press Secretary added that other reasons that justify Comey's dismissal have come up since his termination, but I don't recall the President amending his reasoning to include Russia. AMIRITE?

Threadkiller

He said something to that effect in an interview /presser, Barbara. I don't remember exactly.

Might have been the interview he gave in the Oval Office the the Face the Nation jerk.

3 of their wins in the current streak came off the Yankees, 1 off the Red Sox, most off of the Orioles, the White Sox and the Tigers, the last three not very good teams. Yes, call me envious.

Barbara:
You are right.
One reason President Trump was upset was that Comey would not publicly admit that He was t s target in the Russia investigation.
Rosenstein's letter cites the Hillary email investigation as the cause of the firing.

Brought over from the last thread. This is the 3rd tim in 2 days TM has snuck in a new thread after I posted on the other thread.

Read it and smile. This is from the digital edition of the Southampton Press. Its about DACA. Read the comments. We are not as liberal as the day trippers and summer people think they make us.

If people here on the South Fork of the East End of LI are thinking like this, the what are the people in Iowa and Texas and South Dakota and Indiana thinking?

No, Trump and his pollsters know exactly what they are doing.

I cannot comment on the Cleveland Indians so as not to jinx them.
We may have to get rid of Chief Wahoo because of political correctness.

cboldt

See President Trump's Full Interview With Lester Holt - May 11, 2017, which the press chronically misrepresents. In that interview, President Trump says he wants the investigation to continue, hence it is nonsense to say that Trump admitted in the Holt interview, that he fired Comey to make the investigation stop.

Great baseball year. Indians go from solid team to literally unbeatable over the last few weeks. Baby Bombers shine, although they are a year off. Dodgers fans go from worrying about the jinx of the 116 win Mariners to hoping LA gets it back together for the playoffs. Stanton chases 60. Bosox clearly miss Ortiz, but are rolling towards the playoffs. Playoffs will be exciting. Too bad the games start so late. I will be in my usual dilemma of choosing the game or avoiding being bleary eyed at work the next morning.

The DoJ is only stiff-arming Congressional committees. We don;t know much beyond that. I don't trust the press reports about "why" and what the FBI is sharing with Mueller, if anything.

daddy on iPad

CNN has a story up that Mueller worked briefly last year for a company "that was part of a Middle East energy and arms project pushed by Michael Flynn" but that Mueller failed to list that on his Ethics Forms.

A spokesman for Mueller told CNN that Mueller did litigation work last year for the entity, called IronBridge, while Mueller was a partner at the WilmerHale law firm. He said the IronBridge work wasn't listed in Mueller's ethics disclosure form released last month by the Justice Department because it didn't meet the threshold for which disclosure is required. Mueller's filing listed multiple major legal clients including Facebook, Apple, Sony Pictures and the National Football League.

Update on Will-- he's in his room now!

Will got up to his room around 5:30 tonight. Little more awake then we thought he might be....

Dr. Turek (our heart surgeon) couldn't believe how awake he was for everything that has happened today.

Being awake like this does show us that hopefully his brain wasn't affected by things that occurred today, but also doesn't help with him being so upset.

They can't sedate him too much because it is dropping his pressures. Hopefully they can just get him comfortable and we can all get some sleep.

All-in-all it was a good day. First day in 8 months we can say we are actually one day closer to home. First day since April Will isn't being kept alive by a mechanical heart. First day he can ask when he can go home and we can say hopefully soon. (Maybe hopefully by his birthday in November..)

Before we get there let's just get through the next couple days. His chest is still open and will need to be closed. His VAD site needs to heal along with everything else. His kidneys hopefully start to kick in and hopefully he can start breathing on his own.

Baby steps right???

Using tech to Astro turf lawmakers and media.

http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/09/how_to_make_a_revolution.html
Yesterday: Write letters to everyone and every news agency to protest or complain. Usually, small numbers are ignored implying the protest is ignored

Today: You have programs that generate unique letters based on keywords and then send using thousands of correct email addresses (because you have access to data banks of addresses, on sale just anywhere). Ditto for Twitter addresses. This multiplies the small group by hundreds, thousands or even millions.
....
The organizations could be CNN, FOX, or some random Senator. The key point is the volume. It must be too large for the messages to be read in total, but not too large that the sheer count looks suspicious. The volume must not be too small, as then the message theme is ignored. Completely fake websites can be created to recruit cadres of useful participants to attend rallies or protests of any sort. As well, these programs could also respond to blog entries in any desired fashion.

In this way, just a handful of people can shape the news or the Congress – or foment a revolution.

Gus, I'm hoping that the Tribe will repeat what KC did a few years ago; namely after a World Series loss in which they overachieved while being outmatched, they just ran the table the following year.

I'm getting really depressed because nobody seems to think that the most important issue with DACA is that Congress didn't pass it. In fact, Congress explicitly voted it down. Whether or not the US gives the "dreamers" amnesty is not the point-- the point is that "the US gives..." always means Congress proposes, debates, and passes, and then the president signs. (Or if he vetoes, Congress overrides the veto.) When an executive MAKES the laws, not executing only laws made by the legislature and interpreted by the judiciary, then the executive is not a president, but rather an emperor. You see it in the bizzarre awkward language "Trump is repealing DACA." No, Trump can't repeal DACA because only laws can be repealed, and only lawmakers can make laws, and only lawmakers can repeal laws.

THAT is what Trump needs to be tweeting about. That Congress will pass a law, and he might veto it depending upon what it says, but if he signs it-- or if Congress overrides his veto-- then he will faithfully execute the law made by the lawmakers.

Because he is President Trump. His predecessor was Emperor Obama.

Anthony Weiner's back in the news. This time he's claiming victimhood, and blaming some of the same folks Hillary blames: UK Daily Mail: Pervert Weiner comes clean at last: He admits to Skype and Snapchat sessions with girl, 15 - and sexting relationships with 'hundreds of women' whose ages 'span decades

This bit kills me:

Weiner's memo also describes the 15-year-old girl as a manipulative fame-seeker – writing that she baited Weiner into exchanging sexual messages with her because she wanted to influence the U.S. presidential election...Weiner argues that the teenager intentionally saved and documented her conversations with him in order to impact the presidential race – a goal she allegedly admitted to federal investigators.

I don't think there's any other way of reading that than Weiner thinking of himself as the victim, taken advantage of by the 15 year old.

Weiner also blames leakers in the FBI – and former FBI Director Comey and he and his attorneys are also calling for no prison time because they believe he has been "punished enough by his public humiliation"...including by being blamed for Hillary Clinton's election defeat...

must be why Charlottesville has been in the news today. and why was a VICE/HBO camera crew at the ready for the tiki torch rally?
so very odd and coincidental.

in other news re: the Rice unmaskings. I had something stuck way back in the recesses of my memory of Erik Prince and the Seychelles and the 'ole rusty trap was working.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/blackwater-founder-held-secret-seychelles-meeting-to-establish-trump-putin-back-channel/2017/04/03/95908a08-1648-11e7-ada0-1489b735b3a3_story.html?utm_term=.39cbedb20cdc

Long story short: it is alleged in the article the UAE Crown Prince and an unknown Russian envoy were trying to develop a back channel to the White House through Erik Prince.

The bit that peaked Rice's interest:"Flynn and Kushner were joined by Bannon for a separate meeting with the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, who made an undisclosed visit to New York later in December, according to the U.S., European and Arab officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters.

In an unusual breach of protocol, the UAE did not notify the Obama administration in advance of the visit, though officials found out because Zayed’s name appeared on a flight manifest."

Maybe the UAE didn't want the meeting on the front page of the WaPo because, you know, in the neighborhood they live in, their choices are to be at the table or be on the menu.

it is also worth noting that the meetings were during the transition. Prince has said the meetings were part of his business and nothing to do with Trump. He had no role in the campaign or the transition (although he raised quite a bit for Trump).

Miss Marple the Deplorable

rich,

Even if Prince was trying to start a backchannel, I believe that isn't illegal and would demonstrate NO collusion, since I think collusion would have made a backchannel unnecessary.

MM, you'd think more than one person would have quit over Mannthing. Maybe others threatened to do so privately.

Cathyf, in 2014 the Repubs wouldn't pass a law for Obama for spite and partly because they knew we'd bail on them, but now they mean to? Trump shouldn't give them any cover, but maybe he will keep them busy & distracted until next year. They won't want the base to stay home. The MSM will push it just for that reason, of course.

so lets believe the worst for a moment: the Obama Administration was spying on the Trump Campaign, and then the transition, and they still couldn't drag Hillary over the finish line. they could only concoct variations of "The Russians" to explain away their various screw ups, and it appears that no one in the bureaucracy thought it wrong the administration was spying on a political campaign.

Here's a chance to walk the talk, put your money where your mouth is.
This young black guy is producing a play title Ferguson and needs some $ to get it to NYC. OffBroadway first, but he has big aspirations.

Thinking you don't need any more of the FakeNews about Ferguson? Well, his play about how Ferguson was ALL ABOUT fake news.
It's based on the transcripts of the grand jury. The one that did NOT charge Darren Wilson, as you may recall.

How the "reporting" "defied the rules of physics." True that. I got minimal news when that happened, but somebody who dies from a bullet wound to the top of his head from a distance was charging the police, not peacefully surrendering.

"Hands up don't shoot" my tushy.


https://www.hollywoodintoto.com/mcaleer-ferguson-play-new-york/


Yes, a young black man who wants the truth to come out.
Here's his inspiration:

The new show’s inspiration came from a Broadway protest targeting Vice President Mike Pence. The stars of the celebrated show “Hamilton” ended a performance attended by Pence by delivering the following lecture:

“We, sir — we — are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,” he said. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf all of us.”

“They told the audience, ‘no conservatives are welcome there,’” McAleer says. “I’m saying to them [with ‘Ferguson’], ‘Here I am. What do you think of this?’

Don’t tell me where I can go with my art,” he says.
