The ballot issue for carving California into 3 states is a stunt designed to force SackOtomatoes to deal with issues such as the water supply and taxation.

Voters can say whatever they want about it, but the voters will be met by the "all parties concerned" qualifier mentioned below:

"Finally, despite the ambiguous second semicolon in the clause, new states may be formed out of an existing state provided all parties consent: the new state, the existing state, and the Congress. In that way, Kentucky, Tennessee, Maine, West Virginia, and arguably Vermont came into the Union."

"Rush in an excellent Hour 2 monolog is certainly contributing to Mueller's plummeting image."

i heard 20 minutes of hour 2. El Rushbo was killing it.

That Mule ToolaPalooza is witholding evidence from the indicted party, a distinct violation of due process, because the "Russian meddling is still going on" he alleges.... rhymes with Rosita Rosenstein's witholding of unredacted documents because, because, because!!!!

And the usual questions remain as to whether Trump has the impulse control, patience and team-building skills to lead the US down this long and winding road.

Considering that he had the impulse control, patience and team-building skills to lead the US to the summit and agreement, in record time I might add, I'm going to say that's a yes.

"I'll go out on a limb and say Trump is getting the briefing from Rosenstein because he trusts him."

I'll grant you a definite maybe.

I'll suggest POTUS, on the advice of counsel, is adhering to "the appearance of propriety." No need to fuel SC fires with more obstruction allegations because Rosita had somehow lost routine access, as a proxy Cabinet member in place of J.Beauregard Sessions, to POTUS; and, therefore could not execute the duly assigned duties to execute his so-called investigation.

And, finally, I'm not operating under the assumption that Rosita is the only briefing bunny in the land.

Q: How many transgenders does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Trick question. They’re incapable of actually changing it, and they never will, because their real goal is to scream at you as being responsible for the room being called “dark”. If you just socially accepted that the room with the broken bulb was lit, then it would be considered just as equally lit as if the bulb were functioning. Bigot.

Porchlight,

Thank you for commenting on the "impulse control" sentence, because that mystifies me.

ANyone watching that press conference would realize that he is way more controlled than his detractors constantly claim. His team-building skills are off the charts; as I have mentioned before, not only does he have a good grop of people on his teamin the White house and cabinet, but he has built a team out in the country, and they are exceptionally loyal to MAGA, as Terry Sanford found out.

Back from Shinnecock. Very wet, foggy, but lots of fans and there were at least 10 foursomes and threesomes out on the course. Tomorrow will be interesting. Softened greens and fairways but up to 30MPH wind gusts mostly the afternoon. IOW's being a sand soil course, it will dry out quickly and with the changing wind from the prevailing SW to a wicked WNW wind it will challenge the players since they haven't practiced in that wind.

It will mean moving the tees up on No. 6 since its a 245 carry and 30mph wind is a 3 club wind. We're going early tomorrow for Phil, Rory and Justin teeing off on No. 10. Moar later.

Tom Lifson (Am-Thinker): Air Force's 'most wanted deserter' discovered working on Janet Napolitano's staff

The former head of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, managed to overlook the Air Force deserter with top-security clearance on her staff who has been a "most-wanted" fugitive for 35 years.

Larry Klayman places his bet:


Expect a toothless IG report: More cover-up!


By Larry Klayman
June 11, 2018

...The most recent example concerns the anticipation of the soon to be released report of DOJ's inspector general (IG). This report is "reportedly" centered on the actions of former FBI Director James Comey and others with regard to the Hillary Clinton email scandal and the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. To boost viewership and ratings, Fox News, in particular, has been touting how this report will likely be a "game changer" when it comes to holding Comey, the Clintons, Obama and the rest of their co-conspiratorial criminals to the rule of law. But contrary to Fox's hopeful and opportunistic predictions, our compromised and worthless attorney general, who has failed to use the full power of DOJ to empanel grand juries, gather evidence and indict these criminals, has used the department's IG as a subterfuge to do little to nothing about holding these establishment elites to the bar of justice and the rule of law.

Indeed, this week there were predictable leaks concerning the content of DOJ's IG report, which obviously has been delayed to give the elites time to water it down, and the word on the street is that it will merely give former FBI Director Comey and others a slap on their proverbial wrists. With regard to Comey, he is apparently being fingered merely for "insubordination," and with regard to former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her infamous "tarmac meeting" with Bill Clinton, mere criticism for its seemly appearance. While it is common knowledge that the DOJ's IG has no real teeth in enforcing ethics and the law, this apparent whitewash is, coming from an internal DOJ watchdog, only more confirmation of the continuing cover-up...

An Amish man answered a knock on his door one morning. An electric company worker handed him a piece of paper stating that the electric company would like to run a power line through his pasture. The Amish man said, "No."

"Legally, that paper says we can." replied the worker.

As he turned and left returning to his co-workers in the field, the Amish man went to his barn and turned his bull into the pasture.

As the bull rumbled toward the workers in the field, the Amish man hollered, "Show HIM your paper!"

That makes sense, and then it struck that a private citizen in our country has a plane better than what the Leader of North Korea has access to, and doesn't that say world's about the difference between the land of the free and most of the rest of the planet, and especially North Korea.

James Clapper: U.S. Intel Community ‘Legitimately Angry’ at Hillary Clinton’s Email Misuse

NEW YORK — In his recently released book, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper concedes that if an average U.S. intelligence employee had committed the same acts that Hillary Clinton did with her private email use the consequence would likely have been proceedings about whether to terminate that employee.

Clapper also revealed he was aware that “many members” of the Intelligence Community (IC) were “legitimately angry” at Clinton’s use of her private server. He described those members as feeling Clinton “had so carelessly mishandled classified information, putting sources and methods in jeopardy, and they didn’t understand how she could become president after she’d done something that likely would have cost them their clearances and jobs.”

Judicial Watch:

Court Sets Hearing on Motion to Compel Email Testimony from Hillary Clinton

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced a federal court ordered a hearing for Thursday, October 11, 2018, on a motion to compel testimony about the email practices of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The order was issued by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan.

The development comes in a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit about the controversial employment status of Huma Abedin, former Deputy Chief of Staff to Clinton. The lawsuit, which seeks records regarding the authorization for Abedin to engage in outside employment while employed by the Department of State, was reopened because of revelations about the clintonemail.com system (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)).

In 2016, Hillary Clinton was required to submit, under oath, written answers to Judicial Watch’s questions. Clinton objected to and refused to answer questions about the creation of her email system; her decision to use the system despite warnings from State Department cybersecurity officials; and the basis for her claim that the State Department had “90-95%” of her emails. Judge Sullivan is considering Judicial Watch’s motion to compel answers to these questions.

In her responses sent to Judicial Watch and the court on October 13, 2016, Clinton refused to answer three questions and responded that she “does not recall” 20 times concerning her non-government clintonemail.com email system. She preceded her responses by eight “general objections” and two “objections to definitions.” The words “object” or “objection” appear 84 times throughout the 23-page document submitted to the court and Judicial Watch.

Extraneus
“The Clinton email scandal isn’t going away especially as Mrs. Clinton refuses to answer key questions about her conduct,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch uncovered the Clinton email scandal, and since the DOJ and FBI have dropped the ball, is the last best hope for accountability and justice.”

American Made

The extent of Barry Seal's involvement with the CIA in the 1980s has provided fuel for speculation and conspiracy theories. As author Del Hahn states in his book about Barry Seal's life, Smuggler's End: The Life and Death of Barry Seal, there is no evidence to support claims that Barry Seal worked for the CIA. Hahn was part of the task force that pursued Seal in the 1980s. In his book, he uses case documents and first-person accounts to dispel this idea and other half-truths about Seal.

However, some still allege the opposite, that the government turned a blind eye to Seal's drug running in order to use him to deliver weapons to the Nicaraguan rebels. Basically, Seal would fly over the guns and smuggle back drugs on his return trip. It's certainly possible and it's what the movie proposes. Yet, it's also certainly possible that Seal had no involvement with the CIA in the early 1980s at all, given there is nothing to support the claim but rumors. In the least, his exploits with the CIA and agent Monty Schafer in the movie are largely fictional and based on speculation. In his research for the book, the only confirmed connection Hahn could make between the CIA and Barry Seal was in 1984, after Seal had started working as an informant for the DEA..

Brennan will likely be mentioned frequently in the Horowitz IG report on FISA abuse/spying on Trump. He is just one example of a Democrat acting desperate lately. Then again labelling Brennan a Democrat could be a mistake on my part. Substitute Communist if you prefer.

I don't know that Mueller refused the order. Both parties agreed that whatever exculpatory material Flynn received would not be made public by Flynn. The order also required that if there was anything potentially exculpatory but Mueller decided it needn't be turned over, must be handed to the Judge to decide.

All who watch it tomorrow thru Sunday will see why it is what it is. Magical and true to the test of a championship. Plus tomorrow, Dave (InMa) gets to watch his favorite sporting event as Russia kicks off the World Cup of Kickball playing the Saudis.
