The fraud which defamed John Dowd permeates the report. The investigation of the investigators should include the formation, and conduct, of the Special Counsel’s office. They felt empowered by a fawning media to do anything, proper or highly improper, to get Trump.

Question for the handymen/women.

I have a gas powered push mower that starts within a couple of pulls of the pull cord attached. It does not matter how long I leave the mower running, 10 seconds or 10 minutes, but if I stop the engine and try to restart it it won’t start. It doesnt matter how many times I pull the pull cord. I have to wait 15-20 minutes before it will start again and then it starts within 1-2 pulls of the pull cord. Oil level is fine. Any idea what the problem could be?

Emmet Flood, who came to the White House to help me with the Mueller Report, will be leaving service on June 14th. He has done an outstanding job – NO COLLUSION - NO OBSTRUCTION! Case Closed! Emmet is my friend, and I thank him for the GREAT JOB he has done.

One of the issues with Noonan is living in Manhattan. It is sort of like living in Kinshasa with the Ebola virus in the water. A lot of folks there have gone full zombie and Peggy has been exposed to the virus.

Tom R, two thoughts.

1) when did you last replace the spark plug?

2) clean the carburetor.

3)* wait for TK or someone competent to give advice.

* counting like Pelosi is fun. It’s been years since I had that problem. I don’t remember which fix was for what.

We have s mower just like yours.
Do not turn it off.
Repeat do not turn it off until you are finished mowing the lawn.
We have an old mower that belonged to my father in law who passed away
In 1998.

BTW. A modern push mower should start on one pull given the primer doodad. That was why I asked spark plug first.

I don’t think the spark plugs or the carburetor have had any service recently on ours.

One of the issues with Noonan is living in Manhattan.

Matt, as someone who lives in Manhattan, I think her issues run deeper. She's always been a smug elitist, who just benefited from her work with Reagan at the right time. Nothing she writes is of interest now.

Of course I'm not part of the cocktail party set, so maybe I have nothing to lose. The other day I met a British journalist on the tennis courts here and we were chatting about politics. He seemed like a reasonable guy, though left--anti-Brexit, likes Buttplug and Warren--but loathes Hillary. He still could hardly believe it when I said I voted for Trump. Probably he'd never met anyone who had.

MJW

Yesterday several people said that they didn’t think Mueller himself wrote the report and MJW even went so far as to agree with me that it was Weissman who wrote the Part 2 OOJ section.

But I also made clear that I dodn't think the fact that Weissman likely wrote it in any way insulates Mueller from blame.

This isn't just a case of "the captain is responsible for everything that happens under his command." (A proposition I often find to be dubious for very large organization.) Weissman was directly under Mueller -- his second in command, apparently. The report was Mueller's primary work product. Unless Mueller was totally incompetent, he would have read volume II, and discussed its conclusions in detail with its authors. If he disagreed with the obstruction analysis, it was his duty to correct it.

henry

Maryrose, if you always run the gas tank dry (especially over the winter), the carburetor should be ok (ethanol in fuels will damage them anyway). Spark plugs lose electrode with use. So I replace mine every year. (I also sand down the magneto surfaces (to get rust / film off), although that takes care of itself if you run the motor foe a while. Annual oil changes are a good idea. As is washing the air filter element.

If you have to, replacing the carburetor isn’t difficult (assuming you can find the correct replacement part). Gaskets aren’t difficult either. One riding mower blew the crankshaft — left it in situ for target practice.

I do believe Noonan is Brooklyn Heights as if that makes much difference in attitude but at least she has great views.

On odd glitch with Twitter. Usually I open a tab with President Trump's Twitter page and keep it open. WHenever he has a new tweet, a number shows up next to his name, in parentheses. So if there is one new tweet, it will read (1), three new tweets (3), etc.

Today I am getting NO numbers so have to keep checking. That's why I didn't post the Tweet that henry did. Now, on my regular Twitter feed the numbers showing how many tweets have appeared show up. So why not on the President's page?

When I was 11, I started my lawn mowing career by buying a mower that that needed repair.

Next door neighbor was a gear head so he supervised my tinkering. Float in the carb had a hole in it.

Replaced it and a few gaskets and I was in business:)

Spent $5 for the lawnmower and maybe $2 worth of parts (1964).

I also tend to agree with Iggy's comment from a few days ago that suggested Mueller is a lantern-jawed empty suit, and Weissman was actually running the show. But Mueller chose Weissman for a reason. If one chooses a scorpion, it's likely one does so with the expectation it will do what scorpions do.

“ If one chooses a scorpion, it's likely one does so with the expectation it will do what scorpions do.”

Either that or Weissman is the Svengali who has Mueller in his thrall.

Another Bob

“Robert Mueller’s office deleted 19,000 text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok”

I think Kirk is being a bit melodramatic. I have read that Mueller filtered out “personal” texts from that which was subject to examination as part of the investigation.

There is a point regarding the breadth of that filter. Purely Trump-hating texts could be considered “personal”, but IMO would speak to state of mind and should be considered.

MJW @ 4:19

You are using different words to make the same point I made.

You can blame Mueller for not providing oversight of his staff’s actions and signing his name to a report with major legal faults in it but the primary blame for being corrupt and dishonest and omitting the exculpatory evidence is squarely on Weissman’s shoulders.

We know Trump turned over 1.4+million documents to Mueller. No telling how many other pieces of evidence the SC collected. I don’t know how reasonable it is to claim Mueller should have caught the discrepancy between the voicemail recording and Weissman’s unethical transcript of it.

In the Spygate screenplay I am writing I hire Weissman and all the other Angry Democrats if I wanted to trick and distract the Democrats, leftwing media, and Progtard/SJWs into believing Mueller was trying to destroy Trump for Russian collusion and OOJ while the real investigations to bring the Obama criminal cabal and Clinton Foundation to justice were quietly going on behind the scenes.

Batting .500. I'm convinced Rosenstein was riding herd on the whole bunch and was lied to about the obstruction claims. It doesn't matter because it doesn't hurt DJT no matter how many times the loon prosecutor claims otherwise.

Mexican President Hints At Migration Concessions To Defuse U.S. Trade Spat

“The main thing is to inform about what we’re already doing on the migration issue, and if it’s necessary to reinforce these measures without violating human rights, we could be prepared to reach that deal,” Lopez Obrador said.

...

Lopez Obrador said Mexico would not pursue trade wars with the United States, but noted that his government had a “plan” in case Trump did apply the tariffs to ensure the country was not impoverished. He did not provide details of the plan.

“We’re doing all we can to reach a deal through dialogue,” the veteran leftist said. “We’re not going to get into a trade war, a war of tariffs and of taxes.”

He nevertheless noted that Mexico reserved the right to seek international legal arbitration to resolve the dispute.

That doesn't seem like a very strong possibility.
