it was the NYPD that got Weiner's laptop and found the stash. Then they had to shame the FBI office in NYC to fess up about them.

Thanks, OL. Gotta keep these details from the game of telephone.

Excuse me.

Old Lurker

Frosts me that Hillary is on camera claiming Trump should be indicted once "we get the unredacted report" as if she is the injured party.

The only reason she and the others have the balls to play that part on cameras is that NONE of them are on defense or in legal jeopardy as far as We the People can see. If they were scared sh*tless, attacking Trump with Mueller would not be first on their lists.

Sure I know some think the hammer is now free to fall and will "soon", but been there, seen that.

Without sounding like an insensitive racist but what hell is welfare and food stamps plus cleaving out the traditional black nuclear family. I would tax every Democrat only to make this happen.

Not sure, OL, they seem to think the best defense is a good offense, or something. Like when animal is cornered by a predator and turns aggressive. It's predictable: Whatever they are actually guilty of, they accuse Trump of doing. Obstruction of justice? Seriously? From the woman who destroyed e-mails requested by the FBI and bleachbitted her server?

Tom R

I think reality in regards to anything related to Spygate is close to 180 degrees opposite of what OL perceives it to be. The meltdown the Democrats are displaying IMO is not a sign of them displaying confidence that they are in no legal danger.

I had no preconditions to my speculations as to why exactly Lloyd stepped down.

And I'm not changing them either.

I think Obama and Clinton probably thought Mueller would be able to nail Trump.

I think they are shitting their pants now, almost as bad as the Comey and Company, and are hoping like hell that Trump gets bound up in impeachment.

Since both Zero and Curb Dive are craven sociopaths, they will mouth off to the very end.

Read that quoted line carefully and tell me what it reveals.

— Brian Cates (@drawandstrike) April 23, 2019

What does it reveal, Brian?

1) Hillary is the subject of grand jury investigation
2) GJ is investigating MULTIPLE EMAIL ACCOUNTS she had on her Blackberry device
3) I'm pretty sure this Blackberry device was NOT gov't issued/secure/encrypted
4) Blackberry's email servers are not gov't secure/encrypted

— Brian Cates (@drawandstrike) April 23, 2019

Based on Fitton's post, Cates says "Hillary is the subject of grand jury investigation."

From Fitton's post:

Priestap testified in a separate lawsuit that Clinton was the subject of a grand jury investigation related to her BlackBerry email accounts.

Was? When? Five years ago? What lawsuit?

I think if Obama has any control over whether the Democrats impeach Trump he will order the Democrats to lay off. If the Democrats are stupid enough to impeach Trump he will get to present evidence as part of his defense. Can you imagine all the evidence Trump could present that documents the crimes committed by the Obama criminal cabal?

Old Lurker

Jack, did I miss any vet updates on the sick pup?

Why would such evidence be admissible in an obstruction trial, Tom?

Old Lurker

I know, Buckeye. You are not alone in that shortage of words.

Trump could use that evidence to spell out why the Obama administration spied on him, why they fabricated the Russian collusion false narrative to help hide their crimes and that him getting impeached was just the next step in the Democrat’s coverup of their crimes.

Speaking of Qatar, remember how much coverage the WAPO gave to Jamal Khashoggi’s death? Khashoggi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood of which Qatar is a major financier. If Qatar gave money to the WAPO or individuals who work for the WAPO to write articles that were pro-Muslim brotherhood, anti-Israeli, pro-Iran/Yemen etc, then that could be a FARA violation on the WAPO or their employees part for being unregistered agents of a foreign power.

Melinda

Sorry, JiB, when I write about "Lloyd", it's always and only about Lloyd Blankfein, former CEO of Goldman Sachs, and co-signer of 1MDB fleecing/laundering efforts out of Malaysia.

Any other Lloyd will have his last name attached.

Same goes for me writing Mario, as in Draghi, ex Goldman Sachs exec, now head of the ECB and was responsible for GS selling bad paper to cover worse to Italy's UniCredit and Monte dei Pasche banks. But he's SooperMario to me, so that won't be a challenge.

One more thing about my brother-in-law, and then I will quit yakking about him. This article is the essence of who he was.

My two nephews both spoke today. Their father was a bad-tempered alcoholic who never paid much attention to them.

Both spoke of how my BIL had mentored them, patiently helping one with math problems and the other talking about how he would good-naturedly pull him out of ditches when he ran off the road in his VW during the winter.

When my parents' health started failing, he was right there to help with driving them to appointments, encouraging my mother with speech therapy after her brain surgery, and generally being their friend no matter what.

Same guy who won that combat Bronze Star. The word is "chivalry" which isn't used much any more.

I am privileged to have known him. Now back to looking for news articles.

Have a question for you real lawyers out there...

Mueller wrote this long meander that is giving The Resistance the story that Trump really committed obstruction when he fired Comey, but presidents are special cases and can only be impeached.

Now it seems to me that if I were to apply that legal reasoning to a similar case, we just watched Mueller commit the crime of obstruction of justice multiple times, quite blatantly. And he's NOT the president. He's not even the special prosecutor any more, since his term has ended.

Can he be indicted for all the things he just spent the last two years doing? Up until this point, prosecutors basically have immunity to prosecution for even the most blatant corruption -- did Mueller just successfully argue that he doesn't? Did he bring this enough in question that we can have the FBI do a no-knock raid at 4:30am and haul him off in his jammies?

Jim Eagle

He was an officer in the Marines, right? An enlisted or NCO doesn't get his funeral service unless he was MOH recipient. His DD-214 must have been a must read. Plus he carried a sword. E and NCO don't.

Impeachment is not a LEGAL proceding. Impeachment is a POLITICAL ACTION, taken by Congress. High Crimes and Misdemeanors are not defined. Impeachment has happened twice in U.S. history.
Andrew Johnson, Abe Lincoln's replacement was impeached but not convicted by the Senate.
Bill Clinton was impeached. The Senate had no INTEREST in convicting him.

'Think of me as the Grim Reaper': Mitch McConnell says he'll make sure Democrats' socialist plans die in the Senate

Speaking at an event in his home state, McConnell asked, "Are we going to turn this into a socialist country?" before warning, "Don't assume it cannot happen. It'll all be in the hands, I think, of the voters of this country next year."

McConnell went on to promise, "If I'm still the majority leader of the Senate after next year, none of those things are going to pass the Senate," CBS News reported. "They won't even be voted on. So think of me as the Grim Reaper — the guy who is going to make sure that socialism doesn't land on the president's desk."

McConnell continued, "You pass the Green New Deal and Medicare for All, you have fundamentally changed this country, fundamentally changed it into an unproductive place with significant unemployment and huge problems."

One thing I recommend with a pellet smoker is a wireless probe that can monitor the chamber and meat temperatures, set alarms, and let you watch them graphically on your phone. The graphs can be interesting, for example when it comes to the so-called "stall," when the temp doesn't change for a long period before heading up again. (I think this is due to evaporation, but none of the bbq sites get into that.)

Ext,

Sometimes here in central TX I get a little tired of the taste of smoke, which is why a gas grill is nice to have. If you cook on the Rec Tec at the higher temperatures, can you get a good sear and finish a steak or other tender cut with minimal smoke?

Heading out for the drive home, will check back later...

We are only a few decisions from an armed insurrection in my opinion.

Extraneus

I don't usually try the higher temps, Porch, but I'm doubtful that you can get a good sear with a pellet smoker. I go to 350 or so to finish things quicker without over-smoking (the smoke disappears at around 300), but I've never tried searing a steak or something like with gas.

Here's a guy who says he can do it, btw.

Btw, if anyone here has a hankering for the Rec Tec I linked, do get the bottom shelf. Otherwise, the legs aren't stable enough to move it safely after drinking beer, wine or Sangria.

I read On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen almost 20 years ago, amom, but it was mostly two or three pages a night before bed. (It took years.) It's possible that the candy thing was discussed, but I might have nodded off that night.

Excellent book, btw. The writer wasn't a big credentialed scientist, but he knew his stuff.

I bought the book after taking a class at the Culinary Institute of America (Hyde Park, NY) and asking the chef/instructor why lemon juice or acid works for certain dishes.

All he could say was that "It brightens it up."

I thought maybe it had to do with pH, which it does.
