Maybe science can revive Eliot Ness and have Zombie Ness appointed as SC for all things Illinois.

Mueller isn’t doing anything.

MissMarple2

The police have sent a letter to Barr asking for an investigation.

This is so blatant that I cannot see how it will not result in some sort of investigation.

Neo

BREAKING: DOJ insiders have reportedly revealed that Robert Mueller and his Special Counsel team concluded in August 2018, months before the midterm elections, that there was no proof linking Donald Trump or his campaign to colluding with Russians during the presidential election

That is collusion with the Dems. Nothing is fair and equitable when a career government employee is in the mix.

Threadkiller

The Chicago LEO caller to Rush yesterday was certain that the whole thing was done as a favor to Jussie and Rush kept asking what Jussie possess that would give him the leverage to ask for such a favor. They both were stumped.

IMO Odummy probably bangs Jussie and that was leverage enough to do this kind of cleanup.

That is so fantastic! Thanks for the link; my next question was going to be, "Does it come back?" I can see why a moon landing might seem a little mundane. I'll have to add Bennu as a character in my Poseidoniad -- although Osiris Rex may be a bit too multi-culti for my purposes. I wouldn't have been pissed to pass before the Mueller report came out, but I sure hope I get to hear about the results of this mission. In fact, I've put Sept. 24th, 2023 on my handy calendar app.

Logically thinking reasonable people with an IQ higher than Forest Gump know that is if an undisputable fact that Sessions was fired because he didn't understand that the Kabuki needed to last until the following March to be timed with the Emergency Declaration and New Green Deal votes to fool swing voters.

anonymous sources do not get sudden credibility on that claim, even if Andy McCarthy came to that conclusion now that the report is out. (linked last thread).

We also don't know what the verbal instruction from Rosenstein was... Mueller could have spent the next 9 months chasing whatever ghosts those were, the lack of indictments suggest they weren't found.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

I'll join in with the group that doesn't like insulting "pet" names for political foes. I get it, it's a form of propaganda and some people just get a kick out of it. Group bonding to know the inside names. Etc. All worthy causes.
For me, though, it comes off as juvenile as well as detracting from clarity.
One data point.

Just getting around to last weekend’s WSJ crossword puzzle. 1 across clue is: TSA worker. “Groper” doesn’t work as the answer is eight letters. Any help? 🤓

On the other hand, Smollett's lawyer said they might sue the City of Chicago.

"...his goal and focus right now is just getting his life back on track. He has not even started healing from the initial attack because he’s been dealing with everything that’s happened since then.”

(We can all roll our eyes in unison.)

jimmyk

the last name of corrupt Cook County State Attorney who let Smullett skate? Magats.

So is that Magats as in "Maggots," or Magats as in "MAGA(ts)"?

Well Norma Desmond and dr. Evil earn theirs, I guess technically could be frau bissima. Swalley and quilted northam came to me afterwards.

For beneath-contempt jackasses like Schiff, I really don’t care about attacks on his looks. But otherwise I’m in the “looks are off limits” camp. Fortunately there’s a great number of targets in the category he falls in...

rse

So when jussie's race war against the maga brigade doesn't work out as sought he gets charges dismissed and sealed.

And we get to still pretend trayvon was 12 in a striped kid shirt and michael brown was an innocent because it really is all about the narrative.

Sorry, henry. Any solver will know clues and answers must agree in singular/plural. Sheesh! 😀

Helps to know the right people, rse. Well, that and just the right amount of melanin.

I loved that story about bringing in Obama to rein in the Congressional newbies. They seem to be treating him like some stodgy old guy who is past his use-by date. It just warms my little heart.

Victim status now complete for Jussie Smolett.
This is how the left and the anti-Trumpers do it.
The real result emphasizes once again the 2 systems of justice.
Repubs can use that and the Mueller results to pummel the liars of the Left and the media.
We are in a very strong position right now and need to stay on offense.
Time for the release of all documents.
Let the prosecutions and indictments begin.

BREAKING: U.K. Prime Minister May to resign if her Brexit deal is passed

Sounds like a bribe, henry.

i suppose if she delivers a fake Brexit for their version of the swamp, her job is done.

jimmyk

henry, notice that FB blocked people from posting that video ("abusive").

jimmyk

Sorry, that was in reference to the 1:08 O'Keefe video.

jimmyk, must be "white nationalism" or something.

Doug Wead? Too conservative. Depends on verifiable facts. So, most likely not for the WHCA.

Douglas Brinkley? Now there is a man with crease in his pants.

I'm not sure Beschloss or Goodwin would be a win, and the rest of the "historians" are even more politically slanted.

The odds it's VDH are similar to the odds of winning Powerball.

So, then yesterday’s vote was part of the blooper reel of missile malfunctions.

JM Hanes

I really was reacting to hearing the President using "pencil neck" and wasn't trying to suggest any new JOM parameters. The only problem I have here is that I don't know who people are talking about half the time. Now that hurts! :-)

rse

henry-this is the historian and book https://www.amazon.com/These-Truths-History-United-States/dp/0393635244 the MIT profs involved in Ethics and AI that I mentioned and quoted from in today's post were hyping to.

Apparently we are supposed to be educated in the current cultural complexity of our problems.

Rocco

So Andrew McCarthy claims that Mueller knew there was no collusion 3 months after he was appointed SP and before the midterm elections. Did Rosenstein know too?

Henry:
May resigning?
I will believe it when I see it.
Same with the declassification.
I don’t want to hear about it, I want to see it with my own eyes.

Rocco:
Excellent questions.
The way I am certain that Murller is s black hat is the unnecessary length of the investigation and that from the get- go Strzok and others knew there was no there there.

The Infamous Ignatz

Finally got a chance to watch JiB's MITO video.
In answer to JM's question a fully loaded BUFF is around 500,000 pounds. A C-5 is almost twice that.
That was a drill so those planes took off from the regular flight line. There is a much more secure area known as the Alert Pad where the nuclear loaded planes are kept. In a real world situation the interval between the planes would be about half what they were doing since there's about 15 minutes between warning and becoming ground zero in a real attack.

MissMarple2

It is my understanding that May is offering to resign if her Brexit deal is passed.

There are a lot of angry Brexit voters in Britain. They keep popping up on my Twitter feed and if they don't get something passed by Friday, I think they will have civil unrest.

Jack is Back!

And to add to Iggy's 1:58, that is why we can go lighter. The reason we have refuelers that go up first:)

MissMarple2

What I want to know is where that story that Mueller knew about the whole thing being a hoax originated. I know True Pundit had anonymous sources.

Well, who are they? Is it true? Is it a planted story to cause people to doubt Mueller? Is it a planted story to make dems think he is on their side?

This is the problem with unnamed sources. Who are Andy McCarthy's sources? It's the same thing.

If Mueller deliberately held the results back to help the dems, I believe that is a crime. If this is a fake story, we need to know.

I tell you, following a lot of this stuff is like swimming through fog.

It's as week at the Puerto Rico story, he doesn't say no, there are no sources.

The Infamous Ignatz

Last bit of useless info;
All the white smoke when the engines started is from a cartridge start. Normally huge mobile gas turbine air compressors are used to get the engines rotating but they take too long in an emergency.
Instead cartridges about the size of a large coffee can full of black powder are installed in their port on the engine and the expanding gases from their combustion begin the engine rotation.
Once had a guy get his leg shattered by an incorrectly installed cartridge that shot through the engine cover and bounced down the flight line about a quarter miles before hitting him.

JM Hanes

Thanks, Ignatz and Jack. That's really great stuff.

jimmyk

I presume we're going to hear before long about how Mueller's prolonging the investigation long after he knew it was bogus was just all part of the amazing super-duper [redacted for anonamom] plan to help Trump.

jimmyk

And how could the story not be true? We all knew it from the get go, and everything that came out over the first year of the investigation confirmed it. If Mueller didn't "know" he was being deliberately obtuse.

Jane

"The odds it's VDH are similar to the odds of winning Powerball."

I intend to do both!

jimmyk

You're going to do VDH? TMI, Jane. :)

sbwaters

JiB, interesting. As I recall -- and this was 20-30 years ago -- the bombers left first to be sure they got off.

Then the tankers followed.

I think the idea was the bombers could reach targets (some 8,000 miles without refueling) but needed the tankers to get back home ... if there was a home to get back to.

Jane

Jimmy, now that's rude. He has a girlfriend. But I'll go on his cruise to Greece!

Hey ... I was SO sure that I was gonna win the Powerball last weekend that I drove 4.5 hrs just to buy my tix .... so no one would know locally that I had won.

JMH,

I'm in your boat. I never have a clue who certain people are referring to, over and over and over.

Oh, of course, there is usually a difference between the air density in Rome, NY, and Maxwell AFB in Alabama.

jimmyk

Sorry, Jane, it was a hanging curveball.

Jack is Back!

There is grand jury testimony in the Mueller report but the Dems want it all. That is how corrupt they are. GJ testimony is confidential from what I understand. But Schumer doesn't care, he wants it all. I don't think this is going to work out for them the way they think.

MissMarple2

The historian named in the Axios story is Ron Chernow. I don't know who that is.

Narciso79

Biographer of grant Warburg Hamilton and morgan.

Narciso79

I was trying to link an ed Epstein link, 404.

jimmyk

Chernow is the guy who wrote the Hamilton bio, as well as a bunch of others (Washington, Grant). He's an anti-Trump lefty, naturally.

fdcol63 🇺🇸

" ... difference between the air density in Rome, NY, and Maxwell AFB in Alabama ..."

Yeah, we call it "humidity" in FL. LOL

Captain Hate

GJ testimony is confidential from what I understand.

You are correct according to Levin. Since the person being questioned has no legal representation and cannot refuse to answer a question, this strikes at the very foundation of the rights of the accused.

I've just finished Chernow's GRANT *

You know, when one reads about GRANT's background coming into the Presidency, and the problems endured while in office, and then thinks of President Trump--at least for me, there are a lot of similarities to the two men. (Not repeats, but rhymes.)

I have told many colleagues that Mr Trump is our version of GRANT.
