Over in PA-1, the AFL-CIO has multiple big signs up endorsing Brian Fitzpatrick (R) ...

over Bob Wallace(D)

I didn't get a picture

It's so much more peaceful here, since the PHELAN PHUCKFACE PSYCHO got SHITCANNED.

matt - deplore me if you must

Let 'em. Let them show their true fascist faces. Awe need more of this, not less.

Every time the far left agenda of the Democratic Party is exposed it will disgust more of their pro-life base. Every time the anti-Semitism of Democratic Party leadership is exposed, it will prepare the ground for an abandonment of the party by the pro-Israel wing.

Every time another heckler or attack is exposed, it will cause revulsion among decent people.

The Democratic Party's message is not hope, but hate.

Dems in MO went full NPC. No surprise.

from the other thread ... The Art of War has a chapter on Incendiary Attacks and the translation I have has sections extending it from fire to things like propaganda (things that can spread like fire). It is a short drive to extend it to narcotics trafficking and radical movements. And interesting take and seems to fit well within Unrestricted Warfare especially as economic warfare.

Miss Marple

Porch light,

That is an amazing set of endorsements!

Tom R

From the last thread...

To my mind, Horowitz proved himself feckless with his first report, whitewashing the FBI scammers.

The first Horowitz IG report was on McCabe's criminal activity and we know he is currently the target of a federal grand jury so I don't think "feckless" is the proper term to use.

Jane

From the last thread:

"I totally agree and the Cheryl Mills immunity deal is so egregious that I can’t even see straight."

IIRC, if you get immunity you cannot lie under oath or you lose that immunity. So Cheryl Mills will have to turn on Hillary.

Unless I got it wrong. Any good lawyers out there?

Tom R

Now that the leftwing Treasury Dept employee with 4 names has been arrested for leaking private financial data to the media, I wonder how many search warrants have been approved to scour her private and business phone/email records to see if she reported to someone higher up the Deep State chain of command?

Miss Marple

Jane,

Wouldn't prosecutors have to have evidence that she lied?

To my mind, this explains part of the delay. People like Mills have to be trapped into telling the truth or else.

rich

don't think that is the case. the immunity agreement was overly broad but wouldn't be applicable to the issues with JW. the judge could refer her to the bar if she is still a practicing attorney or at least still licensed to practice. he could also sanction her for contempt.

(note i am not a lawyer though so i don't know)

jimmyk

if you get immunity you cannot lie under oath or you lose that immunity.

Jane, my impression is that the lying Judge Lamberth referred to had occurred earlier. He was saying Mills shouldn't have gotten immunity because she lacked credibility.

But my complaint has always been that in addition, someone should only get immunity in exchange for incriminating information regarding a higher-up. Since no one higher up (or lower down) has been indicted much less convicted over the whole email scam, the immunity grants were just "get out of jail free" cards dispensed to friends of Hillary.

matt - deplore me if you must

It was all a fraud and a coverup, jimmy. From the very outset. They have been hiding behind their immunities and stonewalling and withholding and destruction of evidence from day one.

I think there is a RICO case in this.

Old Lurker

When the top levels of DoJ itself is part of the criminal conspiracy, why should it be permitted to grant immunity to other conspirators?

Huh? Huh?

...and don't be telling me some judge might have said it was OK. Gigo of course. See FISA warrants.

cathyf
IIRC, if you get immunity you cannot lie under oath or you lose that immunity.
More important, if you have immunity then you lose your 5th-Amendment right against self-incrimination. So if Cheryl Mills refuses to testify against others for the crimes she has immunity, she can be thrown in jail for contempt until she testifies. And if she lies then she loses the immunity AND is in jeopardy for perjury.

But of course that all depends on whether the prosecutors have the stomach to actually use the immunity that they give out as the tool that it is meant to be, as opposed to using it to sell out the justice system to their cronies.

Rep. Jim Jordan

@Jim_Jordan

Rosenstein interviews with @WSJ where he says Mueller investigation is “appropriate and independent.” Translation—there’s time for media spin to justify Mueller probe but no time to answer questions from Congress about his statement on recording the President.

This is about as believable as the "Socialism works, it just hasn't really been tried" argument.

Extraneus

And TK was right in the last thread. The reason I mentioned Lerner was that she could have been prosecuted by the Sessions DoJ, but they chose not to pursue charges. Unforgivable in my opinion. The woman should have been bankrupted and jailed.

rich

i thought it was a variant of it, jimmyk.

let's give her even more power than she already has.

Tom R

#4DKabukiTheater

You are 100% correct.

Jim Jordan isn't an idiot. He knows full well if Trump wanted Rosenstein to testify before Congress then Rosenstein would be testifying.

Threadkilldr

Looking like a fool isn't looking like an idiot. Constituents reward fools.

Wait and see.

Extraneus

I don't think Jim Jordan is acting. No one is as good at acting to be able to fake what he did at the Rosenstein hearing. Plus, he just said a few weeks ago at a rally that it was the first time he'd ever met Trump. I think he's just not in the loop.

I think Trump, Sessions and Rosenstein are hedging on how much cooperation to give the House, which could have Dem committee chairmen with subpoena power in a matter of weeks. Why act like the DoJ is subservient to the House before knowing how the election will turn out?

Old Lurker

"...that is partly because the party has not really tried to persuade people..."

Two great quotes in my brain jump to mind:

"The beatings will continue until moral improves"

And from my B School case about the failure of a new dog food brand even though all the marketers and all the lab scientists had convinced the board that they had the next Alpo on their hands but sales flatlined anyway:

"The dogs just don't like it".

Old Lurker

Ext just when you said the truth about Lerner, you follow with this "Why act like the DoJ is subservient to the House before knowing how the election will turn out?"

Because the law charges the House with that oversight, the law provides funding to that department on the condition that that oversight be facilitated, the People assumed that the House is providing that oversight and the Administration is facilitating it, and that unlike under recent administrations, we accept that the law is the law until it is changed through proper channels?

Extraneus

"The dogs just don't like it".

lol

Old Lurker

Ext, I know those were not your thoughts, but if they are those of the Trump team, we are in trouble.

Beasts of England

'I don't know about anybody else, but this is my anything-but-DoJ day.'

But maybe tomorrow. :)

Beasts of England

Thanks for that 12:55, OL!! I can't stop laughing about it...

Extraneus

I don't see any reason for the Trump DoJ to bend over for Jerrold Nadler, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi or any other Dem, and I don't care what the law says about it. Let them censure Sessions. We all know how painful it was for poor Holder to experience that excruciating penalty.

Jane

"Jane, my impression is that the lying Judge Lamberth referred to had occurred earlier. He was saying Mills shouldn't have gotten immunity because she lacked credibility. "

So we take her deposition, and if she lies get rid of her immunity. It seems to me it's the same case, but even if it's not, if she lies again about something she lied about before, she should be toast.

Tom Fenten has a new case pending about Benghazi which was the subect of the hearing where the Judge made those remarks. And it was Benghazi she lied about - I think.

Jane

Isn't it interesting that the dems are demanding all this repudiation against SA for the killing of a Muslim Brotherhood guy, but demanded none against the Benghazi killers who killed our diplomats.

Extraneus

What's amazing is that Pompeo and Trump seem to be falling for it.

Not sure they are falling for it. Mitt Romney is out on Twitter virtue signaling like he is the arbiter of all things moral, though.

Old Lurker

MM "Mitt Romney is out on Twitter virtue signaling like he is the arbiter of all things moral, though."

Oh brother. Please make him but one of 55 or 56, please God. I will agree to one more year of funding the country with CRs if you will only deny Romney the McCain Swing Vote.

Miss Marple

Sbwaters,

Who knows? Could have been a summary execution, a witness offed by pals, Turkish agents, Muslim Brotherhood trying to hide contacts, or of cours, Deep State and the Clntons.

Who the hell know?

Extraneus

Well if Mitt's perturbed, you can bet I am (not).

I couldn't care less if the Saudis off'd their own Jim Acosta.

Tom R

I don't think Jim Jordan is acting. I think he's just not in the loop.

Even if that is the case it doesn't change the fact that Jordan isn't an idiot and knows full well that Trump controls whether Rosenstein testifies before Congress or not.

I brought his tweet over just to show you how annoying he is.

1. How do we know the guy was murdered and if so, how do we know it was at the consulate?

2. How do we know for sure it was gruesome? Who told us that?

3 why is he suggesting withering sanctions when we have done nothing to Erdogan for HIS human rights violations?

Tom R

True, I wasn't disagreeing with that. Just the kabuki aspect of it.

In that regard Jordan is just playing to the camera knowing it looks good to his constituents. Nothing wrong with that at all since all politicians do it.

matt - deplore me if you must

Russia is haram to most Sunnis. They have been hammering them in Syria among other things.

Saudi Arabia has a 100# stick with its oil. So I think we need to be very cautious in dealing with this. We have said nothing about Navalny either. This is a byzantine affair defined.

Miss Marple

Heck, for all we know, the Russians offed Khashoggi!

jimmyk

Can anyone doubt that regardless of his actual influence in the Senate as a first-term backbencher, Mitt will get huge attention from the MFM if and only if he fills the McCain slot, and therefore he will do exactly that?

Miss Marple

matt,

I agree with you 100%!

I thnk that is what the President and Pompeo are doing. It is also NOT what Romney is doing!

Miss Marple

jimmyk,

No doubt about it. That is why I would like to have the journalist show up alive somewhere and all of those carrying on be discredited, particularly Mitt Romney, but also Erdogan and the Washington Post.

The summary is that Bongino sees Rosenstein as a criminal that Trump has evidence against and Trump dangles that evidence everhtime he need the criminal to keep Mueller (Bongino compares him to a politically driven hoaxster) in check.

I guess Bongino drinks the same Kabuki-aid as Jordan and Medows.

I hope Bongino can do a quick rewrite and reissue of his book when he tells his fans that it is full of lies after Operation Wait and See reveals the truth.

TK,

It never went anywhere. The tow guy said it was a loose battery, he tightened it and it started up, son let it run for about 15 minutes and we thought everything was ok.

It needs to go in for an oil change and winterizing, anyway. I will bite the bullet and pay the tow fee. Even if he got it started, I would be afraid it would die at an intersection and there I would be. Plus there is no one to bring me home. Son is about 20 miles south of me and daughter is at work 20 miles north.

Tom R

The summary is that Bongino sees Rosenstein as a criminal that Trump has evidence against and Trump dangles that evidence everhtime he need the criminal to keep Mueller (Bongino compares him to a politically driven hoaxster) in check.

In other words, Bongino is plagiarizing the "leverage" narrative that Sundance first posited that treats their assumptions as facts to explain why Trump hasn't fired Rosenstein yet.
