I don't plan on reading what Patterico has to say about whether Mueller was calling on congress to impeach Trump, by my opinion is that he wasn't. The footnote in question is poorly written, but I believe its intended meaning is that congress could, if it wished, pass an obstruction law that specifically applied to the president using his Article II powers corruptly. I find that to be a rather dubious proposition, for the obvious separation-of-powers reasons, but that's the argument the Mueller Dossier makes.

henry

Gus, Clown? Patterico is Shroedinger’s wedgie.

GUS

Bingo CAPN. The idea that POOOOOOTER BOY FREY tells the world that HE takes GANG BANGERS off the street, speaks to the LA D.A's incompetancy.

Poooooter boy, is a legend in his own mind. Low i.q., low self esteem, uses his BLOG power when it is not necessary. Self destructive and full of CYBER MUSCLES.

MD Anderson infiltrated by Chinese? My brother’s med school bud and lab partner heads up cancer research there. (He is a smart man, and a fun guy to have a beer or twelve with). Then reading the article is a link to “Johns Hopkins bans Chinese.” My brother runs cancer research there. Crazy damn world.

Catsmeat

Narciso, your “figmentacious” of last night should be noted as a great invention!

Jimnj, agreed with all your points but do wonder about the Biblical tomahawks!

I would have got the cartoon at Powerline about the Doppler effect better if the cartoonist had employed the classic icons for speed (three slash lines in the direction of the acceleration—see any Nancy cartoon—or don’t, if that is a bridge too far!).

We’ll have lamb tomorrow, but also the things my son likes best because we are also celebrating his seventeenth (he turned on Good Friday but that was not very good for many reasons including theological)—so that means we will also have a recipe for macaroni and cheese from a Georgia elder, now deceased, to die for, as well as biscuits, salad, and most importantly red velvet cake (we are past the point of trying to make candles match the age, so we will revert to my husband’s family’s tradition of three candles for past, present, and future—which I’ve always found a low dodge, but in this case will be helpful). Happy Easter everyone! In fact, much love to you all, as I love you all—that’s including particularly the rehabilitating GUS and TLG and even that silly Jazz of Jack’s—prosper, be better, be good!

(anonomom, I'm not going to have any of those carbs, just lamb and salad!)

Narciso79

I'm less sanguine mjw because Mueller has proven to be a son of gun dark again and again. Boston bcci anthrax prestancua aipav et al

Captain Hate

Gus, maybe he runs roughshod over some bottom level thug who the gangs let be represented by some public defender schlub but anyone with any juice would have counsel that would blow clown boy out of the water; assuming the DA would assign the loon to it.

GUS

I look forward to the day, that SWALLWELL is perp walked for being a PERV.

Extraneus

Narciso, your “figmentacious” of last night should be noted as a great invention!

I was going to say so but I have no right.

Narciso79

It's very cromulent, thanks catsmeat

I think I've finally shattered the bifrost with the good prosecutor.

GUS

Manuel Transmission: BTW the red shift ‘out there’ is utterly not provable. Might as well debate Intelligent Design.

How is that so? The spectrum of hydrogen and other elements on earth can be compared to the spectrum coming from the stars. The spectrum from the stars is shifted relative to that on the earth.

Narciso79

The fact he was attacked by a cult leader out of criminal minds and neither his colleagues in the da office nor the bureau came to his aide, yet he was concerned about some Frank comments on other issues is telling.

GUS

Thank you Catsmeat. You know that I love you.

clarice

Henry--fab!
Patterico used to have a condo in a small complex mt son lived in. He was not liked. I ran into him once--it was at a time when he had not yet been so overtly nuts.

MJW

I'm less sanguine mjw because Mueller has proven to be a son of gun dark again and again.

I attribute no good will to Mueller: I'm simply going by what the footnote says.

Catsmeat

Love right back, GUS!

Captain Hate

The fact he was attacked by a cult leader out of criminal minds and neither his colleagues in the da office nor the bureau came to his aid

Yeah that's pretty unusual in and of itself; I thought providing defensive counsel was a perq of the job. Maybe it is to valued employees...

I know that it's standard procedure to never represent oneself but does anyone doubt that a self trained hack like BK would've smoked him?

Threadkiller
I just banned narciso, steveg. The proximate cause was his suggesting that I have a psychological disorder, but there’s a history. He was excessively pigheaded several months ago in making an utterly false accusation against me and refusing to retract it. Since then he has his usual unscrutable self, but he has also been unremittingly unpleasant and insulting. Then he pulled the stunt with my Stalin analogy, and that caused me to wonder if he was too logically challenged to be worth keeping around. I seriously considered banning everyone who couldn’t understand the point.
clarice

smooches, catsmeat. We all love you, too.

GUS

Brewers lead Dodgers 2-0.

Both home runs by Christian Yelich.

Narciso79

The earlier incident was when he was cowardly relating wolffs insinuations about hope hicks and nikki haley using the excuse that was in the news.

Jane

Why do you guys visit Patterico’s sight since you hate him so much?

Captain Hate

Happy Easter, Catsmeat!

Diana West is suspicious of Barr.

Threadkiller

Same reason I listen to Hannity.

GUS

I think Johnny Patrick Frey Mellencamp, is in need of an INTERVENTION.
Is this CHILD BACK BENCHER, advertising WHOM he has banned from his MAKE BELIEVE WORLD???

GUS

Jane, I for one, do not HATE, Johnny Patrick Frey. I pity him.

Captain Hate

I just lurk, Jane. It's kind of a guilty pleasure when I'm bored; admittedly I could do things more productive but you know what it's like being retired...

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

Thanks to the link to Levin. Am listening to it now.

Narciso79

So they are really going with the notion it was a faulty elevator that sparked the fire,

GUS

Who is DIANA WEST?

Does she understand that BARR did not write the MUELLER REPORT???
CLEAN TOGA LIBTARD APPROVED MUELLER, spent 30 MILLION DOLLARS and over 2 YEARS....AND FOUND NOTHING. NOT A SAUSAGE, as my SCOTTISH MOM used to say.
So now BARR is to blame. Who is DIANA WEST???

Threadkiller

I think Diana West has it wrong. Mueller's report was coming out no matter what. Barr was the hot potatoer that had to introduce it to the masses. A fight between the AG, the DOJ, and Mueller wouldn't have helped. Barr was unable to do anything other than platitudes.

What Barr did, that West should take note of, is make Mueller available for congressional hearings. Hearings where her hero Nunes can dig for truth.

At this point it is pretty clear that a few members of congress are pulling the weight on uncovering the coup attempt.

Threadkiller

Diana West isn't a Sleuther, Gus. She is well spoken and has good resources to build her thoughts. She made a mistake here IMO, but I would give her time to reconsider.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Sorry for the delay... yes that was Goldstein's thing. He actually did his dissertation on it IIRC and taught it at a college somewhere.

Just the thing to get Pooter inflamed is a reminder of his tilting at that windmill. That baboon's ass is still red from that smackdown by PW. I'm not sure if the redness is from the humiliation or just a sex signal cause he gets off on the masochism of the whole incident. He is one sick puppy.

Captain Hate

Point of order: Barr didn't have to do a fucking thing with that report except that he made promises during his confirmation hearings. It was prepared strictly for him and Stedman Holder wouldn't release one damn thing if the roles were reversed.

MissMarple2

He died 2 years ago but nobody noticed.

Manuel Transmission

Now for something completely different:

Turns out our transient Orca are the baddest badasses around.

Narciso79

This fellow seems to have rubbed him wrong

http://www.journal14.com/2019/04/20/its-about-time-someone-did-the-math/

The two philly residents were treated poorly, and hes got a whole bunch of yes men and/or women to echo like the thuggee cult members I temple of doom.

Narciso79

And hunt died 12 years ago, I think he felt the company threw him under the bus initially and in the liberty lobby slander suit, brought against mark lane.

Threadkiller

Diana West never suggested that Barr had anything to do with the report. She senses a problem because Barr didn't publicly kick Mueller in the nuts during the presser.

I'm not going to knock her for being instinctually skeptical of a bunch of old school bureaucrats on her first take.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Congrats to all who have been banned! I'm still playing with him, but the latest should put him over the edge.

It's been put in moderation.

"Do you wish for Trump to fail? That would be the ultimate irony now wouldn’t it? Pooter channeling Rush and defending the other side of that argument than before. Consistency isn’t your strong suit, is it? Clown car for one!"

Another Bob

Um, yeah. That should do it.

GUS

Stephanie , you aren't trying hard enough.

Question his MENTAL HEALTH. I did.

Narciso79

Oh yes I remember that epic category error from 10 years ago.

Captain Hate

Congrats to all who have been banned! I'm still playing with him, but the latest should put him over the edge.

He has his support group of catamites. Beldar/Kilgore Trout is Exhibit A.

Jane

Yeah, I get it Cpt. Have done the same thing, but it’s a waste of time. But I get it.

Another Bob

Beldar is a smart guy. What happened to him?

GUS

I'd ask POOOOOOOTER, why he isn't out ROUNDIN' UP GANG BANGERS!!?

I have only one thing to thank Romney for; when he choked like a cat hacking up a hairball & gave us another 4 years of hell with Obama, he awoke something in me.

That "something" made me fight when Candidate Trump stepped up, then fight 24/7 for his election.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Goldstein broke him. Fitting to use that episode to watch the meltdown, I think.

Questioning his 'judgment' seems to be his biggest trigger, Gus. He absolutely can't stand having it questioned after he renders judgment. For all his nattering about Trumpers being idolizers, Pooter expects that treatment for himself. So much projection, we could see his immolation from space.

henry

Thanks Clarice! Plaid Pooter as a neighbor would be a sign to leave the continent. Plus Oahu is a nice destination. ;)

Jim Eagle

Caps screwed on the penalty call on Carlson. He was the victim for Christs sake.

Threadkiller

Beldar writes like a coward. I haven't seen anything from him that wasn't either long-winded tripe or a short plea for the banning of any commenter that bests him.

If he ever showed talent it was before I looked at the asylum.

Narciso79

I called him general magoo and I might have been charitable:

GUS

Mutt Rombley was once accused of "bullying" some high school "dude".
Mutt Rombley is a WEAK TIT of epic proportions.
Did MUTT, "bully" anyone in the MASSACHUSETTES legislature??? Nah, MUTT ROMBLEY was A-OK in being , SMALL and not in CHARGE. Mutt is and was, a legacy boy, and an opportunist.

MJW

Something that irritates me: The excuse made by Democrats and the media (to be redundant) for Obama not doing more to prevent the Russian interference is that, since the Russians were supposedly favoring Trump, he would appear to be putting a thumb on the scale in the election. However, there's absolutely nothing that would have prevented Obama for going after interfering Russians for what they were doing, without making a pointed of who they favored.

clarice

I've forgotten what was the PW-Patterico fight about?

MJW

FROM going after

Narciso79

Well he vouched for the swiftboaters and for Palin, but in the last 10 years hes been very conventional thinking

If Podesta had a two factor inscription there probably would have been no access. The ads were mostly a joke, on the strength of that wanted to go to cyberwar with russia?

GUS

MJW. How on EARTH, would TURKEY BASTER STUTTTTTTERING CLOWN OBAMA, know whom, these RUSSIANS were attempting to AID or FAVOR. Furthermore, if Bi-sexual Barry did find that TRUMP was being ostensibly aided by RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA, is it plausible, that he would allow that to CONTINUE??? Opie, gave an impassioned speech, indicating and explaining that RUSSIA COULD NOT actually interfere with the MECHANICS of our ELECTION.

clarice

I don't see how the SC could conclude who hacked the emails --as for helping Trump the report indicates they were sowing dissension anywhere they could, including having their operatives stir up racial hatred while pretending to be Trumpers.

Catsmeat

Thanks, Clarice and CH!

Romney is far worse than I ever suspected. I thought the reason he played nice against Obama was because he was too much of a gentleman to fight. But he was just a yellow skunk (other words Steph and others would employ put aside), as his recent comments prove. Despicable. Colossal weak reticule.

Captain Hate

Beldar is a smart guy. What happened to him?

Sometimes you come to a fork in the road and choose poorly. I've done the same thing but had an exit strategy. Beldar is doubling down.

Jane

Interesting defense for Obama MJW. Of course we all know Obama lacks the integrity to even contemplate that. But i’m Sure his defense counsel will tee it up for him.

It will be interesting to see if Obama falls a little bit off his pedestal,.

There has NEVER been a claim or an inference, nor any ALLEGATION, that RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA, was involved in any fundamental interference with our ACTUAL ELE1CTORAL PROCESS. NONE.
What do/does THE FULL COMMIE LEFT alledge to have HAPPENED? ZILCH.
It's come down to ABJECT and UTTER BULLSHIT.
This investigation was egged on by OBAMA 12/19/16. Comey created memo's that he passed to his pal RICHMAN at COLUMBIA LAW, who in turn gave these MADE UP MEMO'S to the NY TIMES. MUELLER was given the task to investigate.

MUELLER FOUND NOTHING. NOTHING. NOTHING.
Manafort was railroaded, GUILTY or NOT.
Roger Stone was SWATTED.

30 million dollars. NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION, NO CRIME, NOTHING.

Captain Hate

It will be interesting to see if Obama falls a little bit off his pedestal,.

I think that's already happened. The question is how far. There's nobody that seems inclined to defend him; that, to me, has been the most unexpected result of this whole thing. CNN already has headlines about how bad the Mueller Report makes him look. CNN!!

It's a absolutely insane who was judge at Salem sewall who cited spectral evidence

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

The nadir was the Rush comment that he hoped Obama failed, Clarice. Pat went ballistic when JG defended the claim based on intent. Then Pooter went after JG claiming he could best define intent (though it was JGs bread and butter) and got all butt hurt when he was humiliated. He even went as low to GGreenwald himself. It ended up with about half the conservative side of the blogosphere staking a claim and severely dividing them. Pooter also went as far as to solicit others to bolster his claims when he was getting his ass kicked.

And all that was happening when DFritch was really harassing JG about his son. Pooter made an ass out of himself over that, too.
