The Infamous Ignatz

--For anyone who believes in the concept of Constitutional rule of law, Mueller is obligated to investigate any possible leads that are related to possible Russian collusion.--

Including things like the pre-comma preface of that sentence might be why some people get irked Tom. Isn't it kind of the flip side of "only idiots believe in 4D chess" to say people who believe "in the concept of Constitutional rule of law" think A and anyone who thinks B by necessity do not?
It's very possible to believe Mueller's entire mandate, whatever it is, is an affront to the rule of law.

Jerome Corsi, a conspiracy theorist with links to both ex-Trump aide Roger Stone and Infowars host Alex Jones, has been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., Friday as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, his attorney says.

It's very possible to believe Mueller's entire mandate, whatever it is, is an affront to the rule of law.

I believe that the Public not knowing what Mueller's entire mandate is is an affront to the rule of Law.

Kaveman Rules

It came at an interesting moment, because Judge Brett Kavanaugh had been caught by Leahy with a line of questioning for which the nominee clearly had not been prepared. It involved an episode while Kavanaugh worked in the White House counsel's office under President George W. Bush. In 2004, it was revealed by Charlie Savage, then working at the Boston Globe, that Republican staff members on the Judiciary Committee had penetrated the computer files of the Democratic senators on that committee that were concerned with judicial nominees, and that, in addition to using the purloined files to their own advantage, those staffers shared them with the media.

The revelation comes as the battle of judicial nominees is reaching a new level of intensity. Last week, President Bush used his recess power to appoint Judge Charles Pickering to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, bypassing a Democratic filibuster that blocked a vote on his nomination for a year because of concerns over his civil rights record. Democrats now claim their private memos formed the basis for a February 2003 column by conservative pundit Robert Novak that revealed plans pushed by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, to filibuster certain judicial nominees. Novak is also at the center of an investigation into who leaked the identity of a CIA agent whose husband contradicted a Bush administration claim about Iraqi nuclear programs.
Citing "internal Senate sources," Novak's column described closed-door Democratic meetings about how to handle nominees..

Ms Krowbar--Ha! Love the nickname, Frau. I don't trust her as far as I could throw her but she didn't lay a glove on him.

Thought Ted Cruz who followed by pointing this out as an opener was quite effective:

He just explained how Judge Merrick Garland joined Judge Kavanaugh in 27 of 28 of Judge Kavanaugh’s written Opinions on the DC Court, and Judge Kavanaugh joined Judge Garland in 28 of 30 of Garland’s written Opinions on the DC Court. So 97% and 93% agreement between the 2 in actual real world rulings.

The Dem's ought to be giving Kavanaugh standing Ovations for that.

Jane:
All the Russia collusion and law breaking was done by Hillary,
Obama the FBI the DOJ and all the heads who have lost the heir jobs .
Mueller has his boys deliberately barking up the wron tree so his involvement in Uranium 1 and other crimes like protecting Whitey Bulger and harassing g an innocent person Hatfill will go unpunished.
Compromised SC, dossier Rosenstein compromised and a missing in action AG.
That is why the investigation is upside down going after the wrong people.
Until Dems are indicted like Podesta and the rest of the cabal the rule of law is being violated and there is no equal justice.

Threadkiller

Michael Medved says that breaking news may preempt his otherwise Trump loving show.

Apparently a top Trump appointee is revealing that the 25th Amendment may be put into play due to Trump's lack of fitness for the job.

Medved sounded as serious as a heart attack, and he is keeping his eye on the wire-feed to let the audience know exact details as soon as they come through.

Miss Marple (the real one)

ChiTown Lurker reports on CNBC reporting on a NYT op ed by a "Senior Administration Official" who says there aare several members working to frustrate the President's "misguided impulses."

Contradictions in the piece are already being noted.

Tom R

Iggy @ 3:43,

IMO a Special Counsel investigation is 100% Constitutional. A Trump supporter can't say the Mueller SC investigation is an affront to the rule of law and then turn around and call for Sessions to appoint a new SC to investigate the alleged criminal corruption within the Obama administration.

I explicitly used that phrase because IMO anyone who professes to be a supporter of the Constitutional rule of law should also support a thorough investigation into all possible leads in order to determine if any federal crimes were committed. For Mueller not to interview Stone and Corsi would mean he was not conducting a thorough investigation. Likewise, Mueller is also obligated to follow any leads that point to Russian collusion between Democrats and the Hillary campaign as well. There is an obvious bone of contention on whether he is doing that or not.

Dead Run

Jon Lovett of Crooked Media and Pod Save America, noted, “Tucker Carlson’s transition from conservative serious-ish writer to blustery CNN guy to Daily Caller troll to race-baiting Fox News host is like ice core data on what led to this moment in our politics.”

In June, Conor Friedersdorf, wrote in The Atlantic, “Carlson squandered his considerable God-given talent for scrupulously true commentary, opting instead for clickbait at The Daily Caller or dumbed-down demagoguery at Fox.”

There’s something to all the liberal hand-wringing. In a speech Carlson gave to CPAC in 2009, he pleaded with conservative journalists to focus on reporting rather than punditry. He held up The New York Times as a standard bearer, begging writers “to go out there and find what is happening….not just interpret things they hear in the mainstream media.” His pleas were met with boos.

But just six years later, Carlson was calling out The New York Times for pro-Clinton advocacy, and in June 2018 accused the paper of blatantly lying to the American people about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Bashar Al-Assad, and Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

If we can figure out how an intelligent writer and conservative can go from writing National Magazine Award–nominated articles to shouting about immigrants on Fox News, perhaps we can understand what is happening to this country, or at least to journalism, in 2018.

If you ask his former editors, they’ll say they’re wistful when they think about the old Tucker Carlson..

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24 You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.

25 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.

27 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. 28 In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

In my opinion the Special Counsel law is unconstitutional and I am a lawyer.If a crime has been committed--and eaven knows we have plenty of criminal laws, prosecute, If it is believed a federal official has acted outside the law impeachment is the method.
Anything else leads to crap like we now have. A truly unrestricted witch hunt by prosecutors with unlimited resources , including garbage laws on conspiracy and obstruction.

Billy Graham prays for Ignazi

Q:
A prominent businessman in our town makes a big show of being an active Christian, but over the years many people in the community have learned not to trust him. Does the Bible say anything about people like this?
A:
I’m always saddened whenever I hear of someone who claims to follow Jesus but has a bad reputation because of the way they live. It’s not limited to those in business, of course; anyone can bring shame to the name of Christ by their moral or ethical failures.

Some of Jesus’ strongest words were directed at those who claimed to believe in God and follow His law, and yet denied Him by the way they lived. On the surface, they may have appeared good and righteous, but in their hearts they were selfish and unconcerned about others, and it showed in their actions. Jesus condemned them for their hypocrisy, and warned us not to be like them. He said, “You hypocrites!… You have neglected the more important matters of the law — justice, mercy and faithfulness” (Matthew 23:23).

Don’t let this one person’s failures keep you from Christ, and don’t use someone’s apparent hypocrisy as an excuse to turn your back on Him. Christ alone is worthy of our commitment, and He alone can change our hearts and make us into the people He wants us to be. God’s will is for us to be “pure and blameless… filled with the fruit of righteousness” (Philippians 1:10-11).

If the writer was really who the Times has claimed, and was really acting as he/she claimed the writer would have given specific instances where Trump almost did something crazy and the WH “resistance” stopped it.
