Isn't extraneus in CT?

DebinGA

He has cast aside his predecessors’ attempts to rectify inequities in the criminal-justice system

I wish Sessions would tackle the deadly stolen guns used in crimes racket. How many Chicago deaths involved a stolen gun? Most of them I imagine. How many stealers of legal guns and sellers/buyers of stolen guns are prosecuted? Relatively few I bet.

Captain Hate

Patterico has lost its brilliance since the Hemorrhoid was booted.

I think it started way before that.

I'm surprised that no enterprising ambulance chasers in LA or whatever haven't figured out which cases the lunatic deputy DA, unless he's a file clerk Plame type of "attorney", is involved with and dress the client up in head to toe MAGA gear. There's no way Nifong Junior could keep his shit together and not interject Tourette's utterances of Trumpalo or Trump Humper into his otherwise incomprehensible strings of nonsense. Even if the jury was completely stacked in his favor, all the opposing counsel would have to do is appeal and submit his toilet of a blog as evidence of insanity in the prosecutor's office against anyone wearing MAGA gear. I guess most of the attorneys out there are lazy and dumb.

For anyone still not nervous: what if both sides are right? Maybe Russians were reaching out to Trump's campaign, Team Trump was responding, and Western intel agencies /FBI were running their own people at Trump to see what's up.

"He has cast aside his predecessors’ attempts to rectify inequities in the criminal-justice system"

...by reaffirming and extending the tradition that Dems and Libs will never be held accountable for true crimes and sedition, but any R accused of anything at all will be and to and beyond the maximum extant of the law.

So I suppose it is no longer an inequity once it is codified.

The other thing worth noting about this Guttenberg creep's act yesterday...

Photographers were at the ready to capture the whole scene. They were doubtless given the heads-up that Guttenberg would approach Kavanaugh.

He's never copped to a location.

DT won IN by 20 pts. Hard to believe the prog shenans are helping Joe Connelly's chances. Ditto Manchin & McCaskill.

Guesstimate that most employees in the da office in Los Angeles are likely resistance.
He actually wants to deport criminals which probably doesn't keep in good stead, they treated him like garbage when voldemort went after his family.

DebinGA

Oh to own a UHaul franchise in LA.

Captain Hate

they treated him like garbage when voldemort went after his family.

Really? That's very low. Too bad he went Stockholm Syndrome on those that he could count on.

Deb "Oh to own a UHaul franchise in LA."

Deb, there is a real metric economists use to measure the health of one state vs another by comparing the costs of one way U Haul rentals.

Well he's worked 9 years in the gang unit, I guess he's winding down some part of that work. It's loonyfirnia don't try to work it out.

So the last Dewey Andreas he found out that somewhat like Victor in burn notice, they killed his wife so as to make him join the secret order six unit.

So the UK came up with two Russians which they show wandering around Salisbury, however they don't post a picture of them at the skripal house.

I'm concerned about a gunless MM living near a housing project and iirc a near neighbor with a menacing pitbull. Hope multiple cars/adults deters evildoers. Hubs is away this week, and I have a loaded revolver and shotgun at the ready, and we live in a very safe area.

Thank you for your concern, Deb. I am cautious.

Can't have a gun since daughter is askeered of them. Son can't have one since he got in trouble with the ex girlfriend.

I am just going to be super careful and let everyone know we are poor. LOL! I sold all my good jewelry several years ago and we don't keep cash in the house.

There is a police staging area for funeral processions 2 blocks away, so that serves as a bit of a deterrent.

narciso - the voldemort episode was intense. It reminds me of the current assaults on the presidency: relentless and uncontrollable.

So Muellers going after corsi he's mostly hit and miss, but what business is that of his?

Captain Hate

I know, Frau; but I've been wanting to suggest that legal strategy for a long time so I was caught up with the opportunity.

Now he can't be challenged on law, that's why one of the best commenters shipwrecked was banished.

Corsi's a target? I'll start holding my breath now for the libertarians to weigh in; shouldn't take long amirite?

Kavanaugh is doing great. Boy is he brilliant.

This is the most basic stupid thing but I can't figure it out. Since no one is disputing that Hillary paid for the Steele dossier, and we know much of the contents came from Russia, why isn't that Russian collusion by Hillary?

DebinGA

Good burglar deterrent tips, MM. I lol'd at the one re homeowners who are away leaving all the lights in the house on. I'll have to turn off most of them tonight. The advice to add deadbolts to outer doors is a nobrainer. Ditto putting a nail in window frames to prevent burglars from entering.

henry

what did Corsi supposedly do? I can ignore the idiot without Mueller tossing him in jail for no reason.

Captain Hate

No, BK is truly evil and our justice system failed badly with him not presently being incarcerated. Dealing with him could scramble anyone's eggs; but the public servant believes the ewok pussied out by not following his one true path, which is sheer nonsense. Different people deal with things differently, Junior.

narciso

Supposedly he knows stone, so yadda yadda this procurator had leeway.

narciso

And cody shearer, his renfield is knee deep in the second dossier, which preceded the presentation of the first.

Captain Hate

I'm sure Corsi knows a gazillion people, which isn't a crime.

derwill

The Dems have boxed themselves into a lose/lose situation. Their base is demanding that they bloc Kavanaugh by engaging in this bat-shit crazy idiocy, but the only chance they have to bloc him is to get Collins and Murkowski to vote nay. Only now the two lady GOP squishes are going to be very reluctant to associate themselves with the bat shit craziness. And when Kavanaugh gets confirmed the best-shit crazy Dem base will blame the Dem establishment for not engaging in enough bat-shit craziness and that could hurt turn-out in the midterms.

henry

Stone is another imbecile I can happily ignore. Why is he getting the Mueller treatment?

Thou shalt hear no speech except ours!

WTH? Crazy, ignorant twitterites call leaving Kavanaugh hearing guests' section empty, death to democracy, denial of right to dissent, dictator Trump's elimination of right to speech. Straight from the college campus to the halls of Congress.

For approximately 20 minutes, the seats for the general public in the Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearing were empty.

When asked about this, the Capitol Police on site said there was a hold on allowing the public into the room per the committee.

As of 11 a.m. ET, the seats were again full (and soon after the hearing was again interrupted by two protestors).

(CNN -spit!)

The big news today is that the new minor league baseball team coming to Madison AL will be announcing their name today. Finalists are Comet Jockeys, Trash Pandas, Moon Possums, ThunderSharks and Space Chimps.

My vote was for Trash Pandas.

The idiot who drove his pickup into the Fox station was a former Dem staffer. I guess he missed the calls for bipartisanship at the recent funeral / carnival / pep rally...

Dave (in MA)

Just discovered someone blocking me on Twitter, music writer Sid Smith @thesidsmith. Not sure how long it's been going on or what my transgression was, maybe replying to an anti-DJT post. I'm not aware of any other blocks. Since the guy posts info I'd like to see, I guess I'll have to logout whenever I wish to see his material.

Corsi has been sitting on information that he would have been wise to release a long time ago.

CH, I suppose we can't win them all.

Jane

Sheldon Whitehouse is a real dick.

DT: “Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff.”

Iow filing deadlines have passed and "there's not enough time" for alternative choices to be on the ballot. I guess Sessions could have been clueless, but it's easier imo to believe he acted out of pique to zing DT.

Extraneus

narciso, do you call Assange "assuage" on purpose? What's the joke?

Beasts, thus all the "the dude is too crazy to determine his politics" posts from MSM.

((Since no one is disputing that Hillary paid for the Steele dossier, and we know much of the contents came from Russia, why isn't that Russian collusion by Hillary?))

Exactly, Jane.

and Steele is a Brit....is it okay to collude with other countries?

Hillary hired citizens of other countries to do voter outreach for her campaign. How was that okay?

"Astrid Silva, an illegal immigrant who spoke at the Democratic convention, said, “We may not have the right to vote, but ‘Mi Sueño, Tu Voto’ will help ensure that our stories are heard and it will send a clear signal to Donald Trump that we cannot be silenced.”"

Good Morning!. Just flipped on the tube and I see Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter testifying that he has his personal biases but they don't interfere with his company.

Jack was wearing the nicest nose ring I suppose I've ever seen on a multi-millionaire, big-shot CEO testifying to Congress.

Local Radio news tells us that Alaska's biggest Volcano, Mount Veniaminof is rumbling and has just gone Code Orange.

I'm having a bowl of oatmeal. Good morning.

Whitehouse appears to be on the cusp of schzophrenia.

Interesting that the Capital police know who the protesters are, and enmasse stand behind them in the hearing room waiting for them to take their turn in idiot screaming.

To be a Senator one attribute you need to have in spades is the ability to talk about yourself when you should be asking questions.

What is the tie between Trash Pandas and Madison, AL?

In addition to what Beasts said, Madison is the bedroom community adjacent to Huntsville aka the Rocket City. Guardians of the Galaxy has the character Rocket Raccoon in it so that is how Trash Pandas became one of the team names people could vote for.

Thank you, Deb. We went out for a walk in a local, but beyond walking distance, park this morning while it was still somewhat comfortable, and my wife pointed out that we didn't have an extremely overaged boy and his dog photo.

Gwinnett Braves are now the Gwinnett Stripers cause idiots were ordering tix for the games in Rome thinking they were the games in Suwanee.... Idiots. So now we are a fish in Lake Lanier. Derp.

What about those of us that have called the Falcons the Coons for lo these many years? Cons would work, but I believe too many NFL teams would fit this moniker...

The thing is mifsud and helper and ohr had preexisting ties to Russian intelligence or oligarch the fellow that mifsud was in contact with timofeev ran a outreach group, that most congressional delegations were in contact with in fact guess who met with timofeev just late last july, none other than James comey.

--Maybe Russians were reaching out to Trump's campaign, Team Trump was responding, and Western intel agencies /FBI were running their own people at Trump to see what's up.--

Except there is zero evidence of the first two, hence the third.
Were the first two ocurring they would simply have used that as evidence to spy on him, instead of having to pay Steele and Simpson to make stuff up.

Captain Hate

Tom, I want to bury the hatchet with you again. I still think you side with the power of the state too much, but your comment about the team names chiseled the ice away from my dark evil heart. Plus I've been cranky in this hot weather; you southern denizens can have every damn bit of it.

I've never heard the Falcons called the Coons. Yelling "Go Coons!" would qualify as "assisted suicide" imo.

Judicial Watch: New FBI Records Reveal Strzok Authored Initial Draft of Comey Letter to Congress about Clinton Emails on Weiner Laptop

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 424 pages of FBI records, including an email revealing that recently fired FBI official Peter Strzok created the initial draft of the October 2016 letter then-FBI director James Comey sent to Congress notifying lawmakers of the discovery of Hillary Clinton emails on the laptop of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

Another email suggests that the FBI had not yet completed its review of Clinton’s emails by the time Comey sent a second letter to Congress on November 6, 2016, reconfirming his belief that Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be charged with a crime.

...

The documents reveal that on October 27, 2016, Peter Strzok emailed other senior FBI officials a draft notice letter from Comey to Congress about the Weiner laptop discovery and the reopening of the Clinton investigation. The emails indicated that Strzok and another official Jon (Last Name Unknown) authored the notification to Congress. The notification, according the DOJ IG, came a full month after the emails were discovered by the FBI on the Weiner laptop.

According to the documents, at 11:04 p.m. on Saturday, November 5, 2016, FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki sent Comey an email containing a redacted draft document which he referred to as a “New Proposal” saying: “Folks, Per our 1000pm conversation, below is a revised straw man for discussion. Again, we could use this if the review when completed supports our conclusions. My comments again in ALL CAPS and bold italics.”

Threadkiller

Cashill breaks it down and concludes:

In many ways, 2005 was a dress rehearsal for 2016. Mueller and Comey had learned how to play their parts. The media had learned how to play theirs. Indeed, the show would have been another huge hit if only Trump had stuck to the “good Republican” script the way Bush had.

So Janet,

Why is it being ignored? And why isn't anyone asking? It's the most basic thing of there is in the entire story.

Apologies if this has already been linked. I haven't started catch-up yet.

Britain charges two Russians with attempted murder of ex-spy with nerve agent

Prime Minister Theresa May...told Parliament on Wednesday: "Based on a body of intelligence, the government has concluded that the two individuals . . . are officers from the Russian military intelligence service, also known as the GRU."

The two men, named as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, were charged with the attempted murder of Sergei Skripal and his adult daughter, Yulia Skripal. The elder Skripal served as a Russian military intelligence officer, who later switched sides and acted as a double-agent serving the British.

Police suspect that the Skripals were poisoned at the front door of their home in Salisbury, a quiet tourist town in the southern English countryside.

Tom R

Corsi's a target? I'll start holding my breath now for the libertarians to weigh in; shouldn't take long amirite?

Since you have been waiting in anticipation I feel obliged to comment.

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.

In this particular case, Wikileaks release of the Podesta emails means their involvement in the 2016 election is within the scope of the Mueller investigation. Roger Stone has long been suspected of communicating with Wikileaks during the 2016 campaign. During the campaign Stone tweeted the Podesta would face his "time in a barrel". Stone was called to testify before Congress and he claimed the basis for his Podesta tweet was from information given to him by Jerome Corsi. IANAL but I assume a properly conducted investigation follows all leads even if they turn out to be dead ends which is why Corsi is being interviewed.

Jack is Back!

Just stick with rule of law. There's no mention of a special counsel in the Constitution nor a Department of Justice, both of which were created by Congress.

Janet 🚬

I don't know, Jane. Nothing about the 'Russia Show' makes any sense.

old comment - The dog that didn't bark...

Where was the Intelligence Community - with unmaking & leaking to the press - when the sketchy Iran deal was happening?

Why were only "Trump associates" unmasked & their names leaked to the press? Were any Democrats or Dem. associates unmasked talking to any Russians or Russian businesses? How about Dems unmasked talking to Iran?
Why are only dealings with Russia amplified? What about other countries? ....Iran?...China?...Pakistan?...MEXICO?

DebinGA

they were called the Macon Whoopis

Oh my, that's the best yet. Very few are old enough to get the allusion. Can't imagine anyone thinking ice hockey would be a hit in Macon. Fake wrestling? For sure.

Captain Hate

Good, Tom.

Mark Steyn sitting in for Rush is excellent from what I've heard today. In Hour 3 he sounds very much like Captain Hate, in that what is griping him the most is the bastardization by the FBI/DOJ and Mueller etc, in using our FISA court system to simply rubber stamp away the Constitutional Rights of characters like Carter Page, and what gripes him even more is that it appears evident that almost none of our Solon's and virtually none of the Media or the Courts seem to give a single damn about this bastardization of our Legal System. Steyn says it much better and more succinctly than that but great to hear. Steyn adds that he has been in front of one of the judges mentioned by a caller and Steyn says hat yes that Judge is nothing but a rubber stamp. Wonder if he will hear about that in future as his case with Michael Mann slithers forward at reptile speed.

Now listening to Chris Wallace on FOX saying that Dick Durban and Patrick Leahy did a good jn in their questioning of Kavanaugh.

Jane

Yeah Janet, it makes no sense.

Did you guys just see the discussion about the Federalist papers? Brilliant!

The Sandy Berger case will never stop bothering me. Between that and Jamie Gorelick being on the 9/11 Commission, I felt completely sold out and I'll never stop blaming the gutless GOP.
