So what's on tap for your birthday, Dave? A Vandermark box set?

question re "change of venue" petition to move any or all Swamp Trials outta DC:

should a trial judge dismiss the petition, would that be a decision a 9th circuit could overrule?

please excuse my lack of info in advance.

in Californy civil cases, the Supreme Court ruled that an appeal by writ of mandate for COV may be filed with a higher court.

that's as far as my Gogglean chops took me.

fed crim matters are a different in kind. has the Trump appointment onslaught set the table?

henry,

I just go to Pravda to see with the WaPo and NYT's are editorialising on today and yesterday and tomorrow. No pay link either.

Looks good, Porch. I signed up. Btw, there are thousands of comments already. Did the .winners copy them from T_D?

the 9th is now conservative!

I think any particular panel is drawn randomly, so there's still luck of the draw.

GUS,

ManC v. Real Madrid. Who you got?

I love the Bernabeau. May be the finest sports stadium I have ever visited and I have been to Stade France, Twickenham and the Old Wembley. Our Madrid office had 6 season tickets and very few of us Yanks who would visit there for Biz ever thought to ask for them. Hell I did and got to see El Classico between Real and Barca. The most intense and noisiest game I have ever been to and everyone was super compatico!

re 9th Circuit development in wake of increased conservative presence: new appointees are REVIEWING previous court decisions.

this may lead to reversals and, if not, may strengthen opinions which derail similar demonstrations of judicial overreach in the future.

Trump campaign files libel suit against New York Times over Russia story
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-trump/trump-campaign-files-libel-suit-against-new-york-times-over-russia-story-idUSKCN20K2X3

(Reuters) - ... The opinion piece was headlined, “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo” with a subhead adding, “The campaign and the Kremlin had an overarching deal: help beat Hillary Clinton for a new pro-Russian foreign policy.”

... It documented numerous contacts between people associated between Trump’s campaign and Russians.

Can somebody refresh my memory about these contacts between Trump’s campaign and "Russians" ?

Ext, it's been around for a few months now, so the community has built up a bit. Which is great - we're off and running.

I had been visiting occasionally but now it will be my permanent home. Don't want to stick around and watch T_D get ruined. But, I do plan to drop in occasionally just to help shepherd folks to the new place.

MissMarple2

clarice,

The Daily Mail had a HUGE story covering the visit with tons of pictures but they did insert the Muslim riots in the center of the story, although it was only about 20% at most.

I also followed The Times of India and a couple of other outlets and have retweeted their stories whenever I run across them.

pet peeve: pundits and players referring to interviews and "evidence" as EXPLOSIVE.

Rudy's marketing message is weakened by his use of the term and makes his prediction, by my degree of cyn/skepticism, that "a lot of Ukrainians" and "top Dum officials" will go down sound hucksterish.

John S

According to Don Surber, the 9th circuit is still a dem majority by 16-13. If the plaintiffs ask for and get an en banc hearing, it could still go against Trump, then have to go to SCOTUS

Maryrose, thank you for the kind comments.

Haven't been to Drudge in years except the very occasional instance when someone says "you have to see the front page of Drudge right now" or something similar.

My husband still goes there every day. Don't know why.

Porchlight

Yes, the 9th is still Dem-appointed majority. But from what I read, the new Trump-appointed judges are making a difference.

Dave (in MA)

All these empty promises to hold people accountable are getting beyond tiresome.

In MA we have a bunch of Charlie Baker-approved candidates running on a supposed "Drain The Swamp" platform, and they're all in on doubling the gas tax without either a legislative or referendum vote for it.

India will always have a Muslim population who, like the Palestinians, are dupes for Pakistani, Qatar and other Jihad states. India could wipe them out like a bug which I wish they would do but Kashmir beckons. I don't remember any Indian special forces raiding expat hotels in Karachi but then I really don't follow the news that closely:)

Delhi is very safe. Hell it has a Metro:) and some of the best hotels, restaurants, and hospitality in the world. That terrorist attack has done nothing to keep people coming back. But for me the place to go in India if you want to see a duplication of Silicon Valley with their real estate, corporation parks and lifestyle is Bangalore.

I don't know what that last part of the second sentence means. Not every muz wanted to relocate to Pakistan when the partition happened, particularly if they were property owners. Some, not all, of the muz (of which there are still a *lot*) keep irritating the Hindus with provocative crap like killing sacred cows or otherwise being disruptive pests until they get forcefully smacked down and the UN types go into the handwringing mode and nobody tells them to STFU. Then it happens again. Now with DJT maybe, just maybe, there's been a shift.

CH,

You know what I mean in the grander thing of India views. But I agree, a hindi v. muzzie kind of cleansing war is not needed or even accepted. But they are an irritant.

I am a big time Inidan proponent. My best friends in engineering were from India and believe me could solve structural problems more quickly than our guys could.

Captain Hate

From the 4:05 link

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller documented Moscow's campaign of hacking and social media propaganda to boost Trump's 2016 candidacy and harm his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

It documented numerous contacts between people associated between Trump's campaign and Russians. Mueller found insufficient evidence to show a criminal conspiracy between Trump's team and Russia but did not exonerate Trump of obstruction of justice related to the investigation.

Did anyone here read the Mueller report and, if so, is the above true?

Captain Hate

Jack, I didn't understand the Kashmir reference. And all I know about that is that India will never give up their claim of ownership. Ever.

Extraneus:

"I read somewhere that 13 of the 29 are now Republican appointees."

I think that's the case, not quite a majority yet on the 9th, because I believe Don also mentioned that the decision could conceivably be appealed to the full panel of 29 judges, where the liberal majority would probably prevail. I'm not sure that necessarily follows, however, because I think that there are a a lot of people who are pro-choice but are willing to drawn a line at government actually funding or promoting abortions.

“What, you didn't want the American flag mask?”

Hah, JMH, that would have been fine, but it seemed to be a different spec than the one sbw recommended. As they were selling out I didn’t even want to take the time to figure it out. Now even the pink ones are gone.

clarice

There are a number of Republican appointed-I think majority of them--senior status judges on the 9th Circuit who do not longer regularly sit but can sit on panels so there may in fact be a R majority there now.

It documented numerous contacts between people associated between Trump's campaign and Russians.

True. The meeting with the female Russian lawyer and Trump Jr and Manafort comes to mind.

Mueller found insufficient evidence to show a criminal conspiracy between Trump's team and Russia

True. Another way of wording this is "Mueller exonerated Trump on the allegations by the Democrats that Trump committed treason and colluded with the Russian government."

did not exonerate Trump of obstruction of justice related to the investigation.

True. My bet is it pissed off Weissman significantly that Mueller thwarted him on this one.

I didn't exonerate Mueller either.

Robin, the replacement site is a great substitute. It's not the original T_D but it's a subset and has the same look and feel. I'm not as heartbroken as I thought I'd be, now that we know we have the new place where Reddit admins can't mess with us. It has a similar energy to the old T_D back in February 2016, back when we were just scrappy upstarts in the Reddit environment. It's better to make this break now than to have them nuke the place in October.

JM Hanes

Captain Hate:

The part of your quote that was not true (aside from the author's mix and matching of Parts 1 & 2) is that there was, in fact, no real evidence presented that established Russian intent to boost Trump, rather than, say cause disruption & discord. That was pure assumption of the 17 intel agencies ilk. I haven't read the enbtire NYTimes article, but assuming the subheading quote is accurate, the campaign has got at least one outright lie to protest: ""The campaign and the Kremlin had an overarching deal: help beat Hillary Clinton for a new pro-Russian foreign policy." I suspect that's not the only utterly unsupported allegation.

As for the few contacts that apparently occurred, I'm not aware of any of them bearing fruit for the Russians, or going anywhere beyond some introductions, really.

JMH, yes, it is easier! And we couldn't link anything properly with the quarantine in place, anyway.

Correct. The Democrats and Fake News media made a big deal about the meeting between the female Russian lawyer Veselnitskaya and Trump Jr/Kushner/Manafort Jr as proof Trump was colluding with the Russian government.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/08/us/politics/trump-russia-kushner-manafort.html

Harpooning the Toxic Whale

Every time I hear about Weinstein’s predations, I wonder how many waitresses, real estate agents, and housewives in Los Angeles might be celebrated actresses today, except that when Weinstein barged out of the bathroom stark naked and lunged at them, they fled the room and didn’t look back.

Our media are so infantile. Can’t we agree that Weinstein is a psychopathic scumbag without calling the witnesses against him “heroes”?

The true heroes are the girls whose names we don’t know — not the ones who were grossed out by the pig, but had sex with him anyway, then sent him emoji-filled suck-up emails because they wanted to be “stars.”
