Jack is Back!

Primo?

First in the Hillary Clinton sense of coming in second.

boatbuilder

Come on, Tom. The story was explicitly blown up by Mueller because...its a hoax. A lie. A falsehood.

Treat it as such.

Jack is Back!

I thought Trump doesn't use email. Does he?

henry

“Lie” will go the path of “racist” and mean nothing by year end.

boatbuilder

Also--shouldn't Mueller be publicly flogging and unceremoniously firing one or more members of his team? And perhaps referring them to the regular DoJ for criminal charges?

clarice

I'm old and understandably my memory is fading, but I'm rather certain TM did think Rove was going to be indicted.

MissMarple2

I am repeating this post because it came at the very end of the last thread, and because I want to make sure people who are pessimistic or discouraged have a chance to see it.

boatbuilder,

People have bought into this Trump/Russia narrative so deeply that they are able to frame anything as supporting their preferred outcome.

I posted a thread yesterday evening about all of the corruption in Arkansas and the indictments and arrests of Arkansas politicians.

This morning, I ran across this thread, which talks about investigations of carruption with Chinese companies in Los Angeles, with a bonus of some stuff going on with DeBlasio and Clinton crnies in New York.

I understand how frustrating it is not to see big names dragged away in handcuffs, but it seems to me that there is SO much to be unraveled, that a strategy of rolling up the smaller fry and cutting off money supplies, as well as getting people to flip, is the path being taken.

MM concerning events impacting voters.

You mentioned Carter 1979 and the Hockey medal 1980.

We have 90 MILLION more people in the country now compared to 1980, and most of the Depression-WWII generation was living and active. Much of that population growth did not come from births and now even those of us who learned what we learned in the 1950's are soon to be over the hill, all of our parents are gone and with them what they taught us about the world, in school and at the dinner table and in our churches.

That of course is my point in chief. We are not the people you and I grew up with. Folks like AOC would be more upset by the untimely death of a Latin Rock Star than she would be by Pearl Harbor or even 9-11.

And there I go again! :-)

The Infamous Ignatz

--that is why Oz camels are captured and returned to their old lands to do camel racing and such stuff--

Think about how useless Arab culture is.
They can't even not eff up camels. Camels!

The Infamous Ignatz

AOC can be elected, just as Hillary could have been elected and even Harold Stassen could have.
But none of them will ever be president.

ChiTown's words:

"Please point out this story to OL and "The Disbelievers." A local cop does NOT ever get to make the leap to DEA without Congressional sponsorship in Illinois. Never. Can not happen in The Machine. This cop's sponsor is known to someone in DC besides the sponsor, his or herself. This news is on the par of the Burke indictment, but a pincer move in Illinois. Coincidences here do NOT happen, and this is two within a month. It's being rolled out on someone's timeline and it is NOT The Machine's."

Story from the Tribune:

P. G. Wodehouse, Carry on, Jeeves:

Lady Malvern was a hearty, happy, healthy, overpowering sort of dashed female, not so very tall but making up for it by measuring about six feet from the O.P to the Prompt Side. She fitted into my biggest arm-chair as if it had been built around her by someone who knew they were wearing arm-chairs tight about the hips this season.

MissMarple2

Old Lurker,

The voters most affected in 1980 were those of the Baby Boom, who were in their 20's and 30's and had been fed a steady diet of liberalism from the media and universities after the Kennedy assassinations.

I can distinctly remember voting for Carter, being disgusted with his incompetence, horror at the fall of the Shah, and suddenly being overwhelmed by patriotism watching the hockey team. If you had asked me about the mind change while I was still in college, I would have totally not believed it.

There are huge numbers of young people who show up at the March for Life. Latino voter support for Trump has risen 19% since the shutdown began. The March for Women is falling apart due to anti-Semitism.

The electorate isn't set in stone. The voters constantly re-assess, change their minds, judge things from new events.

I remain hopeful. I am sorry you don't, but despite reading all of your posts, I see evidence of good things happening so I am not going to get depressed.

"We have 90 MILLION more people in the country now compared to 1980, and most of the Depression-WWII generation was living and active."

OL: one of the things i can count on is you can provoke a good screed outa me. (Sorry, JiB. This might take up as much room as your Little Drummer Boy story from yesterday. :D )

Out of mass privation, suffering and tragic mass death came the miracle of material affluence, a state that perfectly completed the lives of spiritually faithful Americans.

The spiritual/material plane reflects the Seven Aspects of the Divine: Life-Truth-Love-Principle-Intelligence-Soul-Spirit.

For some today, especially me, despite not having lived through neither Depression or WWII, that perfect completion continues.

For many many millions of Boomer-Xers-Millenials, a great privation will be necessary for them to lift their eyes in search of something greater than their phone screens and other trappings of unearned affluence (yes, they may have worked to get the money to buy the phones but that isn't what i'm referring to--- the sacrifice of a prior generation vanquished the Depression and global fascism, thus setting this great Wheel of Bounty a-rolling).

We are on the threshold of a Great BUST, after nearly 75 years of BOOM.

Where will identity politics, AOC, Hillary, FDR and the rest *leave the True Believers* with their godless socialism/communism and other spiritual diseases of the body politic?

What if the BUST is to be presided over by a Donald J. Trump during his second term? The bill is coming due. i think we would be in great hands because he would show us that our destiny is in our hands--- not in the hands of ideologues and shirkers like Felosi et al.

The winner of the 2020 Presidential sweepstakes---- if it isn't Trump, will the winner have signed on to preside over the BUST? Think of Beto or Kamala presiding over the BUST.

And what about the prognostication that social chaos will be the ONLY response across our Great Land?

Where will the unseen majorities of spiritually faithful people in America set their sights? On the solutions offered by godless women and men?

I choose to believe in the unseen plan of God. And as that faith orders my life, the life of my immediate family (children and grands), my businesses, and my circle of prayer---- i am prepared for what is coming.

I know that i am not alone in this faith backed by good works.

i cannot foretell what the changing demographics mean.

but i can be aware that the world is different each day with the rising of the sun, and by the time it sets.

in all of this there is but one constant--- we are One Nation, under God. (whether the Fashionable believe it or not). Human minds can deny God's existence. But i've believed for a long time: if God didn't exist, then would He have to be denied?

Kev out.

Trump doesn't write much down, or use email, afaik. There would almost certainly be no way to prove anything Cohen alleges. Someone on Fox said, and it sounds as good as anything I've heard, that Mueller might have felt compelled to address the misinformation driving the political debate because new boss Bill Barr would expect him to.

Extraneus

Well, deGenova says it was because if he didn't, Barr would have fired him.

Seems doubtful.

Mark Levin says it was to avoid a leak investigation of the SC's office.

Seems plausible.

From the last thread.

Well I'm pissed off over OL's Debbie Downer act of throwing in the towel just like DoT did and betting against the basic goodness of the American people. Fuck that shit. The war isn't lost until I say it is. We have a real President now instead of worthless turds like McCain and Romney that the GOP foisted off on us and maybe he'll be followed up with someone dedicated to continuing what he started.

CH,

You can fight in my foxhole any time. OL can stay back in the rear and clean the latrines. Soldiers with his attitude are a cancer.

True story. During the Desert Shield phase of Desert Storm me and about 15 of my soldiers were deployed to the Saudi/Kuwaiti border. This was before the heavy units arrived. We were there for no reason except to serve as a deterrent against Saddam invading Saudi. If he had invaded we would have been rolled over.

I had a soldier who was a nonstop whiner and complainer about everything. Whined we were going to get killed. Whined about it being to hot. Whined about having nothing to eat but combat rations. We were in the middle of a desert so we had to build a latrine shack. You sat on a piece of plywood with a hole cut in it and there was a metal drum underneath it to catch the piss and crap. Only way to get rid of it was to put diesel in the drum and burn it. To keep the fire from going out someone had to stand there and stir the waste with a stick/pole.

Guess which soldier always got tasked to burn the shit? OL reminds me of that soldier a lot.

Tom R

Has this been a helluva week for the MAGA agenda? We have had all the Spygate leaks of Congressional testimony by members of the Obama criminal cabal. We have had Trump’s epic counterpunch and not allowing Pelosi to use a military plane. We have had Mueller pull a major White Hat act and debunk the Buzzfeed propaganda. Today we have Trump’s compromise proposal which will probably include something on DACA.

MM--By odd coincidence I put "Midnight Train to Georgia" on my short playlist just last week, just because I heard it while shopping or something and it's a great song.

"We have had Mueller pull a major White Hat act and debunk the Buzzfeed propaganda."

Says you. I'm not interested in your customary "bottle caps" style of argument going forward. you had your say. Fair enough. It has been a great week for MAGA. Can't wait for the announcement. May it not underwhelm.

Says me:

Mueller is my enemy. He is undercutting the executive authority of a sitting president (net impact).

Mueller decides to conduct a tactical retreat from the field where Cohen is maneuvering in the face of the President. the tactical retreat said Cohen was being "less than accurate."

so when my enemy maneuvers and backs off of an offensive maneuver against me and mine--- does that make that maneuver a white hat maneuver?

nope. Mueller is at the very least operating in his own self-interest to conserve his power given the paucity of his results after 2 years.

Favorite scene from Denzel's "Equalizer" was when he tells two homies in the warehouse who want to know if he's famous or something.

Denzel says: "yes. i'm a Pip." he flashes a phone vid. "Third one on the right."

https://www.axios.com/trump-expected-immigration-compromise-speech-border-wall-a8713395-d085-4921-a0c8-699872dcd534.html

All the talk so far has centered around Pelosi being in full control of the Democrat's position and as long as she says No to the border wall the shutdown continues.

Pretending that Democrats are willing to concede and agree to a compromise, how does Schumer handle this? Does he order the Democrats not to filibuster or if they do filibuster, order some of them to vote for cloture on the filibuster? I'm guessing the former. After that we have to assume the RINOs in the Senate will support Trump.

Clarice is correct.
I remember the Rove and perp-walked incident within 24 business hours like it was yesterday.
I thought long and hard about posting this but I have decided to say it and take the consequences.
Recently the level of misunderstanding and crudeness have reached a height I am not comfortable with.
I am now reluctant to comment because I know I will be attacked by certain posters who are angry with me or just feel like I am an easy target.
I have defended people and have had vitriol and insults directed at me.
Some reactions to comments have been totally off base wrt what the original poster intended.
I now no longer respond directly to about 5 people because of their rude comments and vulgarity. I think we can do better.
That is just my opinion.
I will be returning to a sub position at my old high school, so I will post less in the future.
I am optimistic about the future.

Jane

"Maybe Mueller feared there'd be an investigation into leaks from his shop if he didn't put a halt to it."

Mueller was afraid Barr would catch him. Supposedly it was 2 people on his team that leaked (assuming there was a leak) and they need to be fired.

Jim @2:29

My theory holds that Trump’s tweets about the Mueller SC being a witch hunt were straight out of Sun Tzu’s chapter on deception. Whatever Mueller has been working on, which we still don’t know for certain yet thanks to the redacted appointment memo, Trump has wanted his opponents to think Mueller has been trying to destroy him while in reality Mueller has been working on something else.

One reason Mueller finally took a public White Hat action yesterday may be because the SC investigation and/or the Horowitz investigation are wrapping up and the deception campaign is no longer needed.

Pointing out folly is different from throwing a punch.

Just suppose, in his address today, Trump thanks the Problem Solvers (new Republicans and Democrats in the House) who visited the White House to discuss border security and the wall with him.

Suppose he explains the group recommended re-opening government while they worked to resolve the stalemate. Suppose Trump agrees to sign a simple resolution to re-open government for 30 days.

That puts Nancy Pelosi under severe pressure. Trump had walked out of the original meeting only after Pelosi said that she would never support a wall even if the shutdown were paused for a month to negotiate a compromise.

Trump is a problem-solver. Pelosi is, to be charitable, not.

I hope they do prosecute the leakers, just like I hope they arrest and prosecute Comey, Baker, McCabe, Yates, Strzok, Brennan, Clapper and Hillary and Obama.

This is by the guy who used to post on Twitter as Imperator Rex, but now just goes by Rex on Quodverum.

LOTS of interesting information in this article.

Alternate theory - There ARE leaks but the news isn't what the media wants to hear so it isn't being reported.

Wait until NPR starts to play dirge music.

They will only give us the true story on RBG when they are absolutely forced to do it.

t some point you have to walk away from the table. We were at that point 29 years ago.

Which Trump rightly did. This move would either a) win, or b) cement in the public mind that Trump was correct.

Nancy is left no negotiating room. Not even with her own party.

If you guys read that article by Rex I posted above you will see that they do, indeed, avoid publishing information they don't like.

Tom R: the way i've experienced you is one who makes points but includes barbs in them--- before somebody socks you in the mouth or deftly derides your statements.

the barbs go something like this: "Anyone who would *believe* THAT is stupid etc etc etc." So people here self-select and come after you. And that justifies your counter-punch.

when you and i first started mixing it up (back in the day when i was calling you Tommy Boy, etc) i was throwing blows.

but, someone here cautioned me about conducting myself that way because we all are amongst friends here.

so i switched. and you too, did the same and stopped putting barbs in your arguments directed at me. we still contend with each other; but, we aren't just socking each other in the mouf.

now we are just a coupla garden variety Teletubbies on a blog and it's just hunky dory.
(/sarc)

but when you say you are only counterpunching, it does not seem to be quite the case.

with some, it's been going on for so long now that "who threw the first punch" is pointless.

sorta like Fort Sumter.
