The Rigged Witch Hunt, originally headed by FBI lover boy Peter S (for one year) & now, 13 Angry Democrats, should look into the missing DNC Server, Crooked Hillary’s illegally deleted Emails, the Pakistani Fraudster, Uranium One, Podesta & so much more. It’s a Democrat Con Job!

Extraneus

Welp, as if we needed verification, Trump knows and cares about all the same stuff we've been discussing for a long time. Yet he seems helpless.

Hmmmm....

His tweets are repetitive for a purpose but they also are redundant.

Now if you grew in Mexico in the 60s you might be a little confused in public they celebrated the Cuban revolution, in more private circumstances they Hunter their own student activists like dogs tlatelco was just the more conspicuous example.

We are the luckiest people ever to live in the greatest country ever to exist, with the greatest President, at the most consequential time

A blessing to be alive, I thank God I am an American, what a gift!

Extraneus

So easy to fantasize about Trump behind the scenes.

"Jeff, after all we've learned, these people should be burned at the stake. You know it and I know it, and if they get away with what they did, the country is screwed."

Does he say, "But Donald, I'm recused"?

Can't be. He'd have been the easiest person in the cabinet to fire.

"I didn't ask you about any case or specific subject, and much of the corruption has nothing to do with the election."

"Sorry, Donald. Can't help you."

Is that even a 1 in a thousand possibility?

One Trick Dicks

Trumps dumbed-down, single syllable tweets have a fraudulent air about them..

Like the Grecian politicians who dressed down in poor neighborhoods and who, as Plato described 'your vanity shows through each hole in your garment'

daddy

For argument's sake, lets consider the consequences of Trump somewhere along the line announcing that he is pardoning Mueller's targets for any of the charges brought against any of Trumps Team that do not have a relation to the charge of Russian Collusion. Obviously that would be a massive battle in the cultural and political wars we're undergoing and we know pretty much who would line up on each side, but just as a thought exercise, I suppose the things to consider would be thing like this:

---Has Trump done enough so far to discredit Mueller's Investigation as a malicious Witch Hunt?

---Has Mueller done enough so far to discredit Mueller's Investigation as a malicious Witch Hunt?

---Would Trump's die hard supporters stand behind him on this if he framed it in his unique manner as a Witch Hunt, and Trump further explaining that he is now now aiding the obviously reckless and unguided Mueller in focusing on the charge of Russian Collusion which is what he was supposed to be investigating in the first place.

---When might he do such a thing? Post Midterms with a solid mandate to buttress him, or anytime prior, such as Mueller's hammering of Manafort and repeating in Court that the charges have nothing whatever to do with Russian Collusion.

---And who might he enlist as his Legal bedrock to assist him in this effort? Dershowitz? McCarthy? Or just wing it all by himself and let the Social Media warfare begin?

So just throwing it out there for speculation, but I'm keeping in mind TC's comment yesterday which was something like any Special Prosecutor of Mueller's tools and experience could whip up a charge against Trump or anyone else from that person's past that could be prosecutable.

I suppose it would also lead to the public resignations of Rosenstein and Sessions which off the top would not not bother me at all.

If Trade Wars are good then this is excellent

One day after being exposed as a member of a violent white supremacist group, Michael Miselis has lost his job as an aerospace engineer. In an email, company spokesman Tim Paynter told ProPublica and Frontline that Miselis “is no longer an employee of Northrop Grumman.” Paynter did not say whether Miselis was fired or resigned from his position.

Defense contractor Northrop Grumman said it will investigate an employee identified as a member of a violent white supremacist group in a recent report by ProPublica and Frontline.

The employee, Michael Miselis, a 29-year-old aerospace engineer, works at the company’s facility in Redondo Beach, California, and holds a government-issued security clearance of the sort required for personnel assigned to classified military projects. Outside of his professional life, Miselis belongs to the Rise Above Movement, a racist Southern California group whose members have physically attacked their political foes in at least four different cities.

This is a really good article by Salina Zito.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

daddy,

I understand your question, but I don't think he would pardon until it is obvious that 1. They were really guilty and 2. That prosecuting would cause street riots and other civil unrest.

I know Old Lurker thinks that we have to have prosecutions of the higher-ups, but consider this:

1. What if the corruption is so deep that it infects every section of the government? Examples: What if Social Security funds have been diverted to the DNC? What if China and Russia have had our intelligence for years?

2. A responsible president, given events in #1, would try to rectify things while keeping the public calm.

3. Many of the criminals would be punished by removing their financial advantages and their public influence.

I don't know if I am correct, but I have become concerned that the corruption is far deeper than we realized, even amongst the cynical folks here.

Thanks, MM.

Well with all the President's unambiguous tweets today, and Mueller admitting his Manafort charges have nothing whatever to do with Russian Collusion, thought I'd pose the question. We do live in interesting times.

I think you get the gist, however,

daddy

As for Lieutenant George S Patton's "National Vision" Commencement Address to the 1916 Graduating Class of Caltech the Throop College Of Technology in Pasadena, I can find nothing further on it, but it is interesting that that year they had instituted a Course in Military Science and Tactics and some of the students had demanded that the course be Mandatory, not Elective.

What a difference a century makes:)

One tries to think of an analogue of Patton for this war, perhaps that lecturer at west point who suggested some rather draconian scenario.

Anyone else locked out of typhuspad today? I had about a 12 hour timeout. It could’ve been my damn iPhone.

Threadkiller
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) arrived at a campaign event in Troy, Missouri this week where she was greeted by a ground crew courtesy of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).

A ground staff member, a man dressed as an airport wing walker complete with orange batons, ear protectors, and a safety vest, was there to help guide McCaskill into the event as her campaign's RV arrived and she excited the vehicle.

The ground crew's appearance came in the wake of a Washington Free Beacon report that found McCaskill's airplane – in addition to her "Big Blue" RV – was used on a tour of the state. The tour has been billed as a down-to-earth RV tour – one McCaskill said she was "excited to hit the road" for. A blog following the tour's events is titled, "Breaking in #BigBlue." It was not the first time McCaskill had come under fire for her use of a private plane, and critics have, as a result, come to refer to the senator as "Air Claire."

LOL.

We've come a long way from when the NRSC kicked Todd Akin in the jewels.

Back in the mid to late 70s some company, I think it was United Artists, bought the entire Blue Note catalog and the bean counters said "now that you have this, shouldn't you be trying to make some money off it?" So they got all this out of print stuff together and started releasing these double lps with covers that were the color of grocery store bags. Fortunately what they lacked in packaging artistic quality they made up for by using high quality vinyl for the pressings (a MAJOR preoccupation of mine). Anyway I walked in a rekkid store and a guy I knew there told me I have to get this double set of this pianist that nobody at the time knew about. I bought it and the guy was right; everything was good. But this one stood out, at least to me:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qOusP7t0Rkc

With the release of this, it opened the floodgates if that's what you call an upswing of interest in a niche-y type of music. He's now held in the same esteem as Monk and many people have covered his work. But before the Blue Note reissues, he was a very obscure trivia answer.

I had that Dave Mason lp on multicolored vinyl; I think it was on Blue Thumb records. It was the first stuff I'd heard by him; for some reason all the Traffic stuff flew by my radar. A few friends of mine told me his Traffic stuff was better (for whatever reason I never checked them out; frankly I didn't think Winwood was very interesting and I really really didn't like their Low Spark of High Heeled Boys stuff) but I figured I'd survive in ignorant bliss. But I enjoyed the Mason lp fine
