At this point, what difference does it make?

Old Lurker

From the end of the other thread:

WMAL radio is all JOM friendly from Rush at noon through Mark Levin who starts at 6pm.

The callers for the last 1 hour and 21 minutes think Flynn has been screwed by the DoJ and now they are pulling the flesh off his broken body...and that Trump should not have allowed that to be done to one of his guys. So those callers lay it on Trump.

Then the callers turned to the "cave on the wall" which they now wonder if Trump ever even really intended to build from the get-go, and they are stunned that Trump was so vocal last week in making it personal between him and Nancy/Chuck and a shut down. Again, the callers, many of whom said they would have been impacted by the shutdown are disgusted that Trump caved so fast. Make no doubt about it...it is seen in DC as a personal rout of Trump.

Then the news on the hour led with the NY AG talking about how Trump had abused his charity in numerous illegal ways, that he coordinated its actions with his campaign, and finally that he had used it as his personal piggy bank. And that was from the outgoing AG, not the one who really wants to jail him and his family.

The callers after that were out of sympathy for Trump.

Damn I did it again.

Don't read lurkersusie's 4:20 on the other thread of the Comey interview if you are having heart or stomach problems or if you are enjoying your first Matini or craft beer of the day. It was hell just getting through the Gowdy questions.

IMHO, Comey is a rat bastard, a true smartass with a big ego, a big badge, and nothing available without pulling his nails out.

Jim "Hey, seriously, it's a long battle. Things will go up and things will go down."

Well let's see. There is now zero chance of getting any significant good legislation through the next Congress. Our debt (Federal only!) is about $22 Trillion and increasing nearly $1T a year. 62 million residents already live in homes that do not use English as a first language and that number is increasing not decreasing. Every single day people who lived through the worst the world can do but who fought to prevent it here, die, and are replaced by younger people who know but a smidgen of our actual history and why that matters, and what history they are told, makes us the bad guys.

So how long do you have?

As to things going up and things going down, my partner called mid day to ask "Hey. If the market falls 500 points yesterday but goes up 200 points today, why are people trying to tell me that is a good thing? How many two days ups and down like that can we take before we are broke?"

As to your (you have said this before and have been joined by others) "It's time to start thinking hard about what we can do to help."

Now MM. Proper budgeting demands, and the law requires, that the POTUS spend only money that has been appropriated by law for use for the purpose stated in the law. Period. Yes I know that is a new concept for DC, but forgetting that is why we are broke and why we hate each other.

Old Lurker,

What I would do is see if stuff could be LEGALLY redirected. For example, what amount of drug smuggling prevention could be used for wall construction, interpreting it as a preventive measure?

I also would see about the Crowdsourcing legality by getting private donations as well as recruiting volunteers to help with the construction.

Extraneus had a good idea, too, in getting Mexico to build it with fundds we provided through foreing aid. It is in their interest to slow down all of those Central Americans coming in.

One thing I am certain of is that Trump is not going to say "OK, I give up." It's not in his nature.

Old Lurker

"Trump this afternoon about what may happen with a shutdown: We'll see what happens...it's too early to say."

His WH sure has sent a lot of signals that $5B for the wall is not the drop-dead cliff it was when they filmed him with Nancy & Chuck last week.

He is in the box he created for himself. And not created last week, but last year when he got snookered the first time and swore it would never again happen with a budget deadline. His base gave him a pass because it was early days still, just as we bite our tongues giving Kavanaugh a pass for his first two disappointments at bat. What works once or twice gets old quickly.

Is this 4D's Last Stand?

Flynn was DIA director during the obama administration. He is personally and intimately aware of numerous felonies committed by Obama and everyone in his cabinet, as well as potentially hundreds of high-level government co-conspirators. Benghazi. Fast and furious. Uranium One. Weaponizing the IRS. The iran deal. Arming ISIS. The Haiti charity fraud scheme. The clinton foundation human trafficking. He can directly implicate every single key player of the Obama administration in high treason.

As part of being fired by Obama for attempting to blow the whistle on the administration's crimes, Flynn was subjected to multiple national security NDAs preventing him from disclosing certain information to ANYONE including his lawyers. In other words, if Flynn spills the beans, he violates his NDAs and goes to prison.

The only way to bypass the NDAs is through a plea deal. You'll notice, the plea deal he signed explicitly requires him to testify as to ANY CRIME he is AWARE of -- not that he was involved in. Not only is he REQUIRED to provide sworn testimony about the things he wants to say (in a way that negates his NDAs) but his testimony AUTOMATICALLY gets entered into the official record.

Basically, Flynn is using Mueller's plea deal to fuck the deep state in the ass. The judge is beginning to sense this, which is why he was so pushy in trying to get Flynn to withdraw his plea. The judge doesn't want to sentence flynn, because as soon as flynn is sentenced, that puts his deal into effect and Flynn is released from the NDAs and can criminally implicate the entire gubermint.

MM, don't get sidetracked by $5B and where he finds it. The WALL is going to cost five times that or more, and his voters were promised THE WALL. (He can huff and puff about what has been built and how much more he can do with $5B, but the plain fact is that not a foot of the Wall-Wall built after that competition has been built anywhere.)

The WALL will never get built unless Congress agrees to fund it. And that is a good thing for the country.

That's a fact.

Extraneus

The judge embarrassed himself to the point that he has to let Flynn off with a slap on the wrist now, possibly along with an apology.

As for his past experience being rolled by corrupt FBI political activists, he's apparently still ok with that, and the noise he made about the Stevens railroading after the fact was just a smokescreen. They got what they wanted, and he helped.

GFY, Judge Emmet Sullivan.

Old Lurker,

OL,

What if I told you I could build a wall, physical or digital for under $5billion?

This the one thing that pisses me off about Trump, he refuses to accept a technical approach and solution. Too me the whole Wall thing is over played and kept simple to appeal to the flyover country who may not have the understanding of what technology can accomplish.

Not being a xenophobe here on flyover but Trump needs to get more educated and I can't believe the DoD hasn't briefed him yet. But maybe they did and that is why Kelley left.

Old Lurker

It was all over the radio this afternoon, MM. Lots of sections have been beefed up in a few critical areas with razor wire etc, and lots of sections were pre existing to the old standards, but nobody has released a photograph of any single section that looks like any of those five test sections that got so much press.

To your second question, I argue with your solutions because they all are based on Obama-esq tricks and stunts when building something as big as THE WALL can, should and must be something all three branches of government want, knowing that most of the people are behind them in that.

It is the job of the POTUS to get that support arranged, just as FDR got us behind WWII and Churchill got his own government and his people behind it to. Both of those leaders started down that path with most political forces against them. We elected a can-do negotiator thinking he could accomplish that feat with THE WALL. Collecting lunch money from children or organizing community work weekends like cleaning up the garden in the town square will not get it done. And if he could build the entire wall out of extra money in the federal budget against the wishes of Congress, then that is a pipe dream.

So the judge accused Flynn of working for Turkey ... only to be corrected by the prosecution on the timing?

The judge's bizarre actions today prompted some digging around.

Here is an article on Flynn from May 2017 that mentions one of the Turks who got indicted yesterday.

https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/white-house/article151149647.html

Here is the DOJ press release about the two Turks indicted yesterday.

https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/two-men-charged-conspiracy-and-acting-agents-foreign-government

What exactly did these two Turks do differently than what countless other foreigners have done when it comes to buying influence with politicians in DC? Why is the Trump DOJ under Acting AG Whitaker going after them?

Extraneus

Comey: DOJ official reacted to Trump exoneration requests saying 'God, I was hoping that would go away'

"The president is pretty clear he would love for you to have made that information public, told the American people that the president, their president, the guy they elected, wasn't under investigation," Jordan said during Monday's hearing. "Why didn't you do that? Why wouldn't you just tell the American people he is not under investigation?"

Comey answered that he would not have made such a statement "without the approval and direction of the leadership of the Department of Justice" and added that "saying that publicly had significant consequences, both in terms of creating a duty to correct and potentially being misleading."

According to Comey, Trump initially made his request for an exculpatory statement in a phone call on March 30, 2017.

"I relayed his request to the Acting Attorney General [Boente]," Comey said. "I didn't hear back."

Comey said Trump restated his request in a phone call less than two weeks later.

"[The president] says, 'What did you do with what I had asked?'" Comey told lawmakers. "I told him I had given it to the Acting Attorney General. And we had a conversation where he said he understood the way to proceed."

After the call, Comey said his chief of staff called Boente and said: "The president just called. Wants to know what happened with that thing."

"And Mr. Boente's reaction was, in substance, 'Oh, God, I was hoping that would go away.'" Comey concluded.

Pretty much my same tune, Jack. Real leaders adapt and change as they learn more, then they bring their teams along as required. Ain't been done here and again, that is a box of his own making.

Significantly, none of what Flynn and Kislyak discussed had anything to do with alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign on the 2016 presidential election or the other matters under investigation by Special Counsel Mueller.

Conversely, treason is defined as levying war on the United States or giving aid and comfort to a nation with which we are at war. Even raising the question of such a charge against Flynn for his work on behalf of Turkey – a NATO ally – is absurd.

Thank you, Clarice. I was wondering if I only imagined that I knew more about the law than Emmet does.

I know a guy who worked for the Boeing program back in the early 2000s that got a contract to build a prototype for a technical approach/solution i.e. a "virtual wall". It was behind schedule, over budget and having technical issues so the VP executive at Boeing got called in to testify before Congress. The idiot got caught lying to Congress about the status of the program so they killed the funding for it.

This post will no doubt piss off a few of you. Have at it.

Flynn took the guilty plea of lying to investigators to avoid Mueller charging him over the Turkish lobbying issues (FARA).

Keep in mind, this is about law and this is about politics. Sullivan appears to be well aware there are times when admitting to violations of law can be the better alternative than allowing the appearance of, and the use of, a much more damaging political narrative.

Think about it this way. If Flynn didn’t accept the plea, team Mueller could then begin deploying a narrative that was not just about a national security adviser lying to federal investigators; but also encompassed an unregistered agent of a foreign power holding a key national security position in the White House. Imagine what team Mueller and the media would do with that narrative. Think about it.

OK I have thought about it. Seems to me based on Sundance's argument Mueller did Flynn a legal favor and Trump a huge political favor.

Mueller did not have to offer Flynn the plea deal of lying to the FBI. Mueller did not have to recommend ZERO jail time for Flynn. As Sundance pointed out, Mueller could have indicted Flynn for accepting $530,000 from the Turks and then siding with Erdogan when it came to US military policy in the Syrian civil war. This was a helluva lot worse than failing to register as a foreign agent. As Sundance points out this would have caused a major political shitstorm that almost certainly would have hurt Trump in some manner.

Does anyone else think that Mueller chose the course of action that politically protected Trump and legally helped Flynn?

Pinandpuller

I can't see any court believing Mueller's bullshit but I believe my lying eyes.
