Law school hypo: If a president is the unwitting tool of a dictator who helped him win even without his conscious collusion and who is still pulling his strings, might that trigger §4 of the 25th Amendment because such a puppet is “unable” to faithfully “discharge [his] duties”?

This is an instructive thread on both how the Buzzfeed article was factually false (about the Trump Moscow project) but also how BuzzfeedBen and Chris Hayes of MSNBC work together to keep the impression of the fake story circulating.

Buckley was the son of a Texas wildcatter, who had some polish, he was hunts deputy in Mexico city a generation after his father had been kicked out, where be learned the practical aspects of Marxism from eudocio ravines. He populated his publication with ex marxists like meyer and trotskyites like Burnham, heck chambers had worked with a real Soviet spy in hiss.

I poked around and found this:

"I knew Dick Rutan back in F-100s when the 48th Tac Fighter Wing at RAF Lakenheath converted to F-4s and he was like many who seems to have resented having a backseater and two engines. I thought the F-4 flew much better than the F-100, it certainly had more power and was more stable. Guess he liked the "challenge" of flying a more difficult airplane."

the WSJ race/Juicy Smolay story is written very well, if the writer was a Sophomore in public school.
No one, no media operative, no race hustler, no FULL COMMIE LEFTIST missed the TRUTH in JUICY SMOLAYS hilarious attempt to profit off of a LIE.
The are FULL COMMIES. They saw a chance a more power and went for it.
JUICY himself, has been trained like a CLAPPING SEAL, since birth, that HE AND ALL WHO CALL THEMSELVES NEGRO, ae victims of YOU. JUICY SMOLAY did not care WHO was harmed, so long as he got MOAR TEE VEEEE TIME and MOAR GOLD CHAINS.

Or in some cases just stuff he knows isn't true. Like the Ted Cruz's dad and JFK thing.

Of all the things DJT did, this was to me the most inexplicable. I'm not an ends justifies the means kind of guy but, even though I initially supported Cruz I was under no misapprehension that he would've beat Tub Dive. Look at the votes Abbott received versus Cruz in the same election. For whatever reason Cruz turns off a lot of voters that would otherwise vote for him. Fortunately that makes that borderline retarded buck toothed tool, Blotto, look a lot more popular than that dolt really is.

Unlike the dunce paper pusher in the LA prosecutors office, I don't go around spewing "Trump's a liar" because of that. Most importantly he hasn't lied to me about anything important.

Really odd that I cannot in any of my USAF archives find anything about Routan flying F-4s. I knew he came to pilot training late. Like he started as a navigator, Then a WSO. Then pilot school. Also, I thought you were referring to his VN duty, not Lakenheath. I think he also flew Globalmasters at one time.

The NY Post is on it.

Gas-guzzling car rides expose AOC’s hypocrisy amid Green New Deal pledge

She listed 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone.

In all, Ocasio-Cortez spent $29,365.70 on those emissions-spewing vehicles, along with car and van rentals — even though her Queens HQ was a one-minute walk to the 7 train.

The campaign shelled out only $8,335.41 on 52 MetroCard transactions.

“Everyone — top to bottom — used the MetroCards,” Ocasio-Cortez spokesman Corbin Trent told The Post.

...

Ironically, the Uber-loving politician took a tough public stand against the conveyance after a New York City taxi driver committed suicide in February 2018.

“Yellow cab drivers are in financial ruin due to the unregulated expansion of Uber,” she tweeted on March 21. “What was a living wage job now pays under minimum.”

And while she is quick to dispense all sorts of planet-saving tips to her constituents and fans, telling a high-school assembly in Queens last month that they should “skip disposable razors and switch to safety razors” and “skip meat/dairy for a meal,” she doesn’t always take her own green advice.

In a Feb. 24 Instagram video filmed in her kitchen, Ocasio-Cortez railed against plastic grocery bags — then appeared to toss two of the sacks, which can be recycled, into the trash.

“It drives me crazy,” she said of plastic bags. “I wish they didn’t exist.”

Etc.

I didn't read the article but was able to access the comments. There is a little doohickey upper right that lets you sort them, so I chose "most liked".
Those seemed to cover:
1) Jussie affair was NOT some accident. It is a calculated and frequently used leftie trick, which they need in order to justify the inconvenient shortfall of actual bigotry.
2) Discussion of Matthew Shepherd (sp?) and how his death not due to anti-homo bigotry and disgust that his Foundation continues to spew lies and his dust undeservedly takes up space in a national cemetary

JiB,

Ok, too many discrepancies from stories I heard 20 yrs ago, so I called Jonesy. Dick came out at the top of their class (natch) and picked the last 100 slot available. Everybody else got 2nd choice 4s. Dick also went to gun school at Luke where my race car buddy was an instructor in 100s, so he might have taught Dick. (About the same time.)

The switch to 4s in England was because the 100s were all junk by then. Dick bailed on at least one there in addition to the one that was his last mission in VN. Rule of thumb: real fighter pilots fly with one seat and one engine. That’s why the 4 was sneered at.

Hillary Clinton: We Are in a ‘Full-Fledged Crisis in Our Democracy’

Sunday after receiving The International Unity Award in Selma, AL, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said, we were living through “a full-fledged crisis in our democracy.”

Clinton said, “This is a time my friends when fundamental rights, civic virtue, the freedom of the press, the rule of law, truth, facts and reason are under assault. And make no mistake, we are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy. Now there may not be —thank God— tanks in the streets but what’s happening goes to the heart of who we are as a nation.”

Clinton also claimed, “racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and the White House.”

Many, many moons ago, when I lived in Germany as an AF wife, there was such a thing as an International Driver's License. Those were issued to people wanting to drive in Europe who were not citizens of a European country.

In my opinion, if "undocumented folks" (aka illegals) want to drive, they should prove either legal immigration status OR be issued an international driver's license, which would show that they had passed a a test and provided proof of insurance, but by having that sort of license, the holder COULD NOT VOTE.
