The Infamous Ignatz

--But I do wonder if the sheer number of mass killings has caused a psychological change in a segment of the American people.--

The psychological change in America occurred when people accepted hugging each other in a closet waiting to be shot as a plan.
Shelter in place is as unAmerican a sentiment as ever saw the light of day.
Had it obtained among our forefathers we'd be hiding in our UK closets waiting for the bobbies to slap the gyves on us for not belonging to the Church of England. And if some manage to escape they'd be tiptoeing through the tulips in Holland. And if a dissenting few did manage to cross the Atlantic they'd still be sheltering in place in the shadow of Plymouth rock instead of heading west to the wilderness.
Are we not men? We are devo.

Flashback… Trump on China in 2011: “Listen You Motherf***ers, We’re Gonna Tax You 25%”

Donald Trump told the Las Vegas crowd,

“So easy. I’d drop a 25 percent tax on China. And I said to somebody it’s really the messenger. The messenger is important. I could have one man say, (in high voice) ‘We’re gonna tax you 25 percent.’ And I could say, (in deep voice) ‘Listen, you motherfuckers, we’re gonna tax you 25 percent.’”

The crowd loved it.

The post office in the little town we now live near is quite pleasant, and the postal workers are friendly and helpful.

This is one of the most dishonest bills we have passed out of the House.

A purposefully mislabeled bill on “pre-existing conditions” meant to mislead Americans and limit choice and innovation in healthcare.

Though I think Mueller doesn't like Trump

What is the basis for that opinion? I know Trump wants people to believe that but other than his public comments what else do you base that on?

FBI records recently released to the public indicate Trump was an FBI informant for a long time and helped Mueller (and Rudy, Comey and Barr) go after organized crime. You would think Mueller would be grateful to Trump for helping him fight crime in the past.

--Speaking of DMV, Buckeye, when you finally have to wander up to Delaware to renew your license or get new plates, you will be pleasantly surprised when you find the little shop in a strip mall that does all that under contract.--

In nine states you can do your license at AAA too.

Question for CH and anyone else who believes Rosenstein has always been a rule of law White Hat from the start.

Based on everything we know now about Rosenstein that supports our positive judgment of Rosenstein’s character, what substantive difference did it make that Sessions recused himself on the Russian collusion investigation when Trump has known from the start he could trust Rosenstein to be in charge of Mueller? Another way of looking at it is asking what would Sessions have done differently than Rosenstein did?

TK,

It listed the name of the DOJ official who was in the room and heard Rosenstein.

Since I answered your question answer this one. Do you believe McCabe and Gatewaypundits’s version of the story is the accurate one? A simple yes or no answer is all that is required.

'I know Trump wants people to believe that but other than his public comments what else do you base that on?'

Beasts,

Do you take everything Trump says 100% literally and thus rule out any possibility of deception on his part?

Threadkiller

Here is what you said:

“Almost every pro-Trump pundit accurately reported that Rosenstein’s offer to wear a wire to try and entrap Trump was said with obvious sarcasm. Witnesses of the discussion are on record supporting that.”[emphasis mine ]

Here is what Jimmy asked:


Link? What witnesses are on record? I’ve only read about “unnamed” sources. That’s not “on record.”

You then attempted to support your claim by posting a link where an anonymous source named a name.

Again, do you have a link to something that supports your claim or is this rear view mirror material?

You know, I'm starting to see the light on all this electoral college criticism.
Another aspect of it is how unfair it is that puny states get the same number of Senators as big ones.
Seems to me Maryland, Rhode Island, Delaware, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut and Vermont all of which together have less than a third of the area of California, shouldn't wield 8 times the number of Senators as us.
If we're going to correct for insufficient population weighting, how bout correcting for excessive border weighting?
Merge all the puny states into one and we'll call it even.

You evaded answering the simple Yes/No question. Were you afraid to go on record agreeing with McCabe (a known liar) and Gatewaypundit’s (someone stupid enough to believe McCabe) version of events?

Threadkiller

Tom, if you paid attention while you insulting everyone with your Gateway Pundit comments you would have read that I don't trust any of those versions to be accurate.

I only brought up the topic after you linked a tweet that claimed that Rosenstein said it in jest. I included your tweet in with the other versions I don't trust.

You decided that defending the tweet's unsubstantiated version was of paramount importance, while I spent zero effort defending any version.

Captain Hate

what substantive difference did it make that Sessions recused himself on the Russian collusion investigation when Trump has known from the start he could trust Rosenstein to be in charge of Mueller?

In retrospect probably nothing but with the caveat that we still don't know a lot of what went on, and I'm not sure we'll ever know unless Trump ever writes about it in post Presidential memoirs.

if you paid attention while you insulting everyone with your Gateway Pundit comments

I’m waiting with baited breath for Beasts to officially inform you of committing a straw man logical fallacy. Not once did I ever insult “everyone” as you claim. What I did do was point out to everyone how dishonest Hoft was and that he was behaving no differently than the Fake News media in his intentional misrepresentation of what Wray said. As several people confirmed in their replies, they already knew Hoft was not someone to put any trust into. There are however a few people here repeat the same bullshit he spews out which is a clear indication to me they believe him. If you think I insulted anyone, the insult would be limited to that subset of the JOM community. I prefer to think of it as me doing them a favor by pointing out why they shouldn’t be taking him seriously.

What makes you think that I think I’m the only person here who knows Trump is a disciple of SunTzu and a master practitioner of deception? I have a big ego but I would never allow it to get so big as to believe I’m the only Trump supporter here with that knowledge of Trump’s background.

Trump’s comments yesterday are the perfect litmus test to determine the ability of Trump’s supporters to determine what to take literally and what is deceptive. Same question for you that I asked Beasts. Do you believe Trump was 100% literal and telling the truth when he said Mueller wanted to be FBI Director again and formally applied for the job?

We are in full agreement once again. Now consider this. With Trump knowing from the outset he could fully trust Rosenstein and that Sessions recusal probably had no negative impact whatsoever on the Mueller investigation, what was the real purpose of all of Trump’s tweets and comments complaining about Sessions recusal and that he didn’t have an AG to defend him against the Mueller witch hunt?

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"That's Texas, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from Texas are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, humorous, but proud and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "I will create Washington, DC. Wait till you see the fools I put there."
