My wife is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders right now. Her mom was diagnosed with cancer a month ago or so with two tumors on her brain and one in her lung. She completed a 10 day radiation regiment a week ago and was supposed to begin Chemo for her lung but she's too weak. We brought her up to ER a few days ago and my FiL got a call from his doctor while there telling him he has a tumor in his only kidney. His other one was taken out 25 years ago because of a tumor. And my wife's mother has told her she doesn't want to die in a nursing home or hosppital but her husband can't take care of her, she's fallen several times and he's had a triple bypass a few months back. My wife feels bad because she can't take care of her mom 24-7. She still works but needs to retire of take a leave because it's killing her she can't be there all the time for her mom. When it rains it pours.

She did get a bit of encouraging news about her father yesterday. He can't have x-rays I guess but there's some new kind of cat scan with dye they'll use to determine the extent of the cancer. If he should decide to have it removed and get dialysis three times a week and then remains cancer free for a year, a transplant might be the answer. He's the healthiest 84 year old you'll ever see and always follows the docs orders. He weathered that bypass like a champ. There's hope for him anyway.

Nancy Pelosi saw a little boy with a bunch of kittens on the side of the road. She had her driver pull over and she got out to talk to the little boy.

She said those sure are some pretty kittens. She asked what party do you think they support. The little boy said that I am sure they are democrats.

Nancy was elated and scheduled a press conference at the side of the road with the little boy. Nancy drove up and said to the little boy, How are my little democrats.

The little boy said they were republicans. Nancy said that last week you said that they were democrats. The little boy said , yeah I know but now their eyes are open!

Jane @ 12:55 links to a Michael Ledeen oped who tells his readers to pay attention to Louie Gohmert's oped against Mueller. The subtitle of Ledeen's oped is "A career built on ruining innocents." Once again my Bullshit Detector was immediately triggered.

Inside Gohmert's oped is a link to this NPR article about the injustice inflicted upon Senator Ted Stevens.

https://www.npr.org/2012/03/15/148687717/report-prosecutors-hid-evidence-in-ted-stevens-case

If you read that NPR article, there is no mention whatsoever of Mueller. The very first sentence is as follows:
An extraordinary special investigation by a federal judge has concluded that two Justice Department prosecutors intentionally hid evidence in the case against Sen. Ted Stevens..
This all occured while Bush Jr was POTUS and Michael Mukasey was the AG. In other words, for reasons I am not aware of Republicans made the decision go after one of their own Senators by destroying Stevens reputation which in turn caused him to lose re-election. I have no idea why Bush Jr/Mukasey would do this to one of their own GOP Senators but if someone knows I welcome a response. I am focused on how Gohmert and Ledeen are misrepresenting the facts of the case.

To his credit, Gohmert does have this to say about Mueller:

At the time there was no direct evidence that Director Mueller was aware of the tactics of concealing exculpatory evidence that would have exonerated Stevensand the creation of evidence that convicted him in 2008.


At the risk of bring called a troll and trying to destroy the blog, I would like to point out that once again this is an example of Gohmert (as well as Ledeen) resorting to dishonest misinformation in order to mislead readers into believing Mueller has made it a career "illicitly targeting innocent people" (Gohmert's own words in his opening sentence) . Based on links Gohmert himself included in his oped, there is nothing in his oped that should lead anyone to accuse Mueller of intentionally ignoring the evidence to ruin Senator Stevens. The NPR article makes it clear it was DOJ prosecutors who hid exculpatory evidence. If you want to blame someone for targetting an innocent Stevens blame Mukasey and his DOJ prosecutors.

CH @ 2:33

Are you familiar with Bill Pulte? He is @pulte on Twitter and he is a billionaire real estate developer like Trump. I follow him on Twitter and he is on a personal crusade to help clean up urban blight in major cities around the country.

When Trump was running for POTUS cleaning up urban blight is something that I figured would be in Trump's wheelhouse and part of the MAGA agenda. I bet you a six pack of beer Trump's tweets on Baltimore were a precursor to him announcing some kind of major initiative on combatting urban blight.

Maybe.

This did nothing for the neighborhoods at all.

It never does. Detroit had no end of boondoggles like the Renaissance Center, a downtown "people mover," and the like, but none of it stanched the flow of people leaving the city in droves. Eventually property values dropped to the point that it became attractive to investors, but only once a non-corrupt mayor got elected, as opposed to the string of criminals and grifters who were in office for 40 years.

Narciso @ 3:39

This is one instance where I don't hold Gohmert at fault.

The Gohmert oped on the Hatfill case cites a Mollie Hemingway oped and she is turn cites a Carl Cannon oped. Lets go straight to the original source, which is IMO a good oped.

Here is Cannon's detailed 4 page account of the Anthrax investigation:

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2011/06/09/anthrax_attacks_and_americas_rush_to_judgment_110142.html

Here is a followup Cannon had after Mueller was appointed SC:

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2017/05/21/when_comey_and_mueller_bungled_the_anthrax_case_133953.html

Bottom line: No "dirty cop" corruption on either Mueller or Comey's part but there is no disputing the fact that Hatfill's case was a bungled investigation. Cannon lists the main contributors to the FBI's screwup:

the FBI ignored a 2002 tip from a scientific colleague of the actual anthrax killer, who turned out to be a Fort Detrick scientist named Bruce Edwards Ivins; the reason is that they had quickly obsessed on an innocent man named Steven Hatfill; the bureau was bullied into focusing on the government scientist by Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy (whose office, along with that of Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, was targeted by an anthrax-laced letter) and was duped into focusing on Hatfill by two sources – a conspiracy-minded college professor with a political agenda who’d never met Hatfill and by Nicholas Kristof, who put his conspiracy theories in the paper while mocking the FBI for not arresting Hatfill.

Doesn't excuse the screwup but IMO it demonstrates the root cause: Mueller and Comey allowed political pressure from Democrats and leftwing journalists to negatively influence the investigation.
Further down is this interesting info:
I know Steven Hatfill’s attorney, Thomas Connolly, well, and David Willman, a former newsroom colleague, even better—and I spoke to them last week about these events. Connolly said he thought Comey was a “decent guy” who was legitimately fooled by that business with the dogs. And while Willman and I were discussing whether Mueller’s reputation for competence was deserved, the reporter volunteered that he did not question the man’s integrity.
