I had forgotten that and I was there by the Australian Olympic team. He was really good and I remember how much fun the team was having dancing to his music.

I think this link was from here but I'll link it again just in case; 3,000 California Churches Plan To Reopen In Defiance Of Gov. Newsom’s Orders.

Newsom is feeling the heat and has said "nothing is set in stone".
It's going to be interesting to see, if there is a second wave, whether people allow themselves to be locked up again.

President Obama is being quoted on Flynn, saying "There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free." It is a curious statement. First and foremost, Flynn was not charged with perjury...


It isn’t curious at all when you accept how lazy and ignorant Obama truly is.

“Umm duh ummm, well how about umm we get him in one of those ‘perjury traps’ ummmm. You know the stuff you guys do. Ummm do it again. And leave me out of it”

Obama invested no time, thought, or energy into anything after he called the Code Red Perjury Trap on Flynn. To this day he remains as uninformed as the day he hatched his one sentence plan..

Meanwhile, everyone in Publix today was wearing masks except moi 😷

And I have a theory why. We are basically post-lockdown. Restaurants and bars are open. Barber shops, hair and nail salons open on Monday, etc.

So, why still masks? Because they are all stylistic, very arty or even cartoonish. Who can have the funniest one, the most clever, the creepiest, the most erudite (saw one that was the Table of Elements), the most artful (A Mon Lisa) was worn by one of the Publix cashiers.

It might remain with like the CB radio craze of the 70’s

Art in Newport


Beach News ..
It begins to look like the Governor has thrown in his hand on the beaches.
Monday the CNB councilman filed his lawsuit against Gov Newsom.
Tuesday the Gov opened Socal beaches again, 'with restrictions'. With the exception of Newport Beach. No soup for us.
Wednesday the Gov opened Newport Beach 'with restrictions'.
It turned out 'with restrictions' meant 'for active recreational use only', whatever that meant.
I've been staying on the Oceanfront the last few days, down by the Balboa Pier. Walked and jogged up and down the beach. I don't know what the intent was, but the City is clearly interpreting it to mean 'regular beach use'. Family groups with umbrellas, singles, couples laying out on towels .. the lifeguard trucks roll right by.
And, bonus, the homeless campers under the pier are still gone. 8 or 10 microtents up where the underside of the pier meets the beach sloping up. 50 yards away you'd never see them. City cleaned them out when the beaches were first closed. Guess they're not 'recreational users'.

And there sits is CH’s favorite Issahole. The F&F loser extraordinarie.

Issa is running for Congress in a district that he doesn’t live in, after thoroughly abandoning his previous district and sabotaging the replacement republican candidate, and the GOPe is all in. It is down to him vs a smooth talking terrorist. I do not envy the poor bastards in that district.

Issahole has said that even after his two years of hiding, if he gets back in he will retain his seniority. WTF?

So it is a choice between known bad and known worse.

"What were in those envelopes?"

Dr. dave Janda discusses what he believes was the envelopes during the George HW Bush funeral contained.
==================================

I ran across this from a year ago. I have seen some curious comments on the Bush funeral, but these were very interesting to listen to.

I have wondered why Pence is brought along with President Trump everywhere. Keeping an eye on him?

Could this also explain the resignations of Trey Gowdy and Paul Ryan?

Everyone seems to give Rosenstein a pass, but he was arguably the most instrumental player in the entire operation.

Yep.

TomR doesn’t know whether to shit or go blind:)

What gives you that idea? I’m enjoying all the recent revelations that have come out. Perhaps Mollie Hemingway and everyone else who is giving Rosenstein a pass (including CH, Clarice, Melinda and a few others here) interpret the facts differently?

Jack Lillywhite

Can someone explain the envelopes and Pence theory. I felt like I was watching an episode of Twilight Zone.

Tom R

I read yesterday that the reason for the second Mueller scope memo adding Manafort, Flynn and others was because after Rosenstein stripped control of Crossfire Hurricane from McCabe, McCabe opened up new, separate investigations into Manafort, Flynn etc. The second scope memo served the same purpose of stripping those investigations away from McCabe and giving them to Mueller.

Captain Hate

“Umm duh ummm, well how about umm we get him in one of those ‘perjury traps’ ummmm. You know the stuff you guys do. Ummm do it again. And leave me out of it”

It's really a damn shame that the nation's first non white President is such an obviously dirty filthy cowardly ignorant corrupt son of a whore, but that's where we are. Too bad the "opposition party" ran disgustingly inept and unlikeable challengers but that's our Uniparty wing.

Because the enemedia is unable to discuss race like intelligent people, this won't be able to be discussed in a mature manner. But it damn well should be.

JiB, I believe the gist of MissM's 12:24 is that Pence is a Bush plant and not to be trusted.

I haven't trusted him in a long time, since it was revealed that a plan was discussed to remove the president via the 25th amendment which would have required his vote iirc. (i think)

DrJ

Way off topic, but I love the late Mic Gillette. Tower of Power, back in the old days.

From the link rse posted on the previous thread

March 1: Flynn was the first obstacle who had to be overcome. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was the next. The Trump loyalist with a strong Department of Justice background would also need to be briefed on the anti-Trump efforts unless he could be sidelined. Comey admitted that early in Sessions’ tenure, he deliberately hid Russia-related information from Sessions because, “it made little sense to report it to Attorney General Sessions, who we expected would likely recuse himself from involvement in Russia-related investigations.” To secure that recusal, yet another leak was deployed to the Washington Post’s Adam Entous, Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller. The leak was intended to tar Sessions as a secret Russian agent and was dramatically spun as “Sessions Spoke Twice To Russian Envoy: Revelation contradicts his testimony at confirmation hearing.” One meeting was in passing and the other was in his function as a United States Senator, but the hysteria was such that the Post authors could get away with suggesting Sessions was too compromised to oversee the Department of Justice’s counterintelligence operations involving Russia. It is perhaps worth noting that the Special Counsel idea was pushed in this article.

https://thefederalist.com/2020/05/08/obama-biden-oval-office-meeting-on-january-5-was-key-to-entire-anti-trump-operation/

So if this was all a premeditated plot to have Sessions recuse, just who did they plot to take over for him?

henry

Rocco, the assumption is Yates. As I recall, Trump bypassed the Obama pecking order to skip past Yates. Since the entire DOJ and FBI were bad apples, it didn’t matter that Trump bypassed the favorite bad apple.

Threadkiller

I think Fat RINO Bastard would be on the list. After Comey was shicanned I believe he was calling for Wray to be head honcho early on.

Threadkiller

Sessions explains:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xEPeAmNC-Iw

Threadkiller
“Unlike Attorney General Barr, I had an official role in that campaign. I was with the president many times as we traveled the country. I was chairman of the National Security Committee, officially reported to the FEC. So when the rules say you can't investigate a campaign that you're a part of, it clearly applied to me."

"I did the right thing, I did. I cannot back down on that."

“I would just say this: Had I not recused and had I taken action to try to suppress, stop, eliminate, fire the people who were doing this investigation, it would have been a catastrophe for the rule of law. It would've been a catastrophe for my ability to bring control over that department that was out of control and needed discipline."

In pro wrestling the pinned wrestler does his best to tag his partner so the new guy can beat the shit out of the opponent. Sessions cowardly move was to stay pinned despite, according to the quotes above, he knew he should have tagged his lame ass out of the ring.

...his knowing..

henry

So it’s a shaggy dog story where Sessions is proud to be the fire hydrant?

Captain Hate

Did Sessions offer to resign and Trump said no?

Captain Hate

As a followup I thought I remember reading that Grassley, who everyone seemed to love how he handled the Kavanaugh hearings except me, refused to schedule a confirmation hearing on a Sessions replacement.

Rocco

I was thinking Rosenstein.

Threadkiller

Did Sessions offer to resign and Trump said no?

Yes. Trump, according to witness testimony found in the Mueller Report, kept the resignation letter with him for a short while after he told Sessions to stay. As if he had a bit of blackmail on Sessions. He finally returned the letter at the request of Preibus, IIRC.

Trump was trapped. If Sessions quit, the media would spin it as Trump Fired His AG!!!! The “coverup” narrative would have hit overdrive well before Trump had a chance to unravel the scheme.

matt - deplore me if you must

Ig, that Little Richard clip reminded me somehow of that famous photo of Sophia Loren and Mansfield.

Threadkiller

Sessions should have resigned before he recused. That would have been the honorable thing to do. Instead he let the mess drag on until he was able to blackmail Trump into keeping him.

Extraneus

I was thinking Rosenstein.

I knew that.

Threadkiller

I may be overthinking it, but I assume the coup plotters would know that Trump wanted an “outsider.” Christie was as much of a fake outsider as Sessions. Keeping Rosenstein as behind the curtains as possible allowed him to steer the direction of the DOJ without taking the heat.

Tom R

Rocco, the assumption is Yates. As I recall, Trump bypassed the Obama pecking order to skip past Yates.

Now we know the reason Obama issued an EO and changed the order of succession at the DOJ to move Dana Boente down lower in the order and replacing him with an Obama loyalist, whose name escapes me. Obama knew Yates would eventually be replaced with Trump’s own choice for DAG so while the coup attempt was going on an Obama loyalist would be the acting AG for all matters Sessions recusal affected. Trump rescinded Obama’s EO which meant Boente was moved back to his original place in the order of succession.

Captain Hate

Someone in The Horde pointed out the Georgia shooting happened two months ago and the enemedia brings it up now as Flynn is exonerated?

The Infamous Ignatz

Always happy to be reminded of that pic, Matt;

Tom R

"I did the right thing, I did. I cannot back down on that."

“I would just say this: Had I not recused and had I taken action to try to suppress, stop, eliminate, fire the people who were doing this investigation, it would have been a catastrophe for the rule of law.

The same exact point Jonathan Turley made. The AG is not the consigliere for the POTUS and had Sessions closed down Crossfire Hurricane while a significant chunk of America still believed the false allegations being spread by Democrats and the Fake News then Trump almost certainly gets impeached in 2017.

Tom R

Instead he let the mess drag on until he was able to blackmail Trump into keeping him.

That’s a dishonest way of putting it. Your irrational dislike of Sessions is not serving you well here. Sessions did the honorable thing and Trump refused his resignation. Period. End of story. The buck stops at Trump so he is 100% responsible for keeping Sessions on the job.

Threadkiller

had Sessions closed down Crossfire Hurricane while a significant chunk of America still believed the false allegations

Sessions put himself in a position where he couldn’t expose the fraudulent investigation let alone shut it down. Like he explains in the recent interview, a person like Barr wouldn’t have had the same conflict. He needed to leave.

Narciso

Our host reminded of that three threads ago.

Threadkiller

The buck stops at Trump so he is 100% responsible for keeping Sessions on the job.

So much for you worry about media spin forcing Trump’s hand.

Sessions set up the awful timeline that neutered Trump’s ability to get rid of him. The day the lawyers instructed Sessions to sit out of the coup attempt is the day he needed to do the honorable thing and resign. When he finally did offer to resign it was after the SC was underway.

Tom R

TK @ 2:34

You forget one key fact. While many Trump pundits like Sundance and Jim Hoft were spewing out anti-Rosenstein fear porn, after AG Barr was confirmed Barr allowed Rosenstein to remain in control of the Mueller SC which also resulted in Rosenstein extending his retirement date. Mueller himself testified that neither Barr nor Rosenstein pressured him to end the investigation.

If there was any truth to the fear porn that Mueller was on a “witch hunt” and Rosenstein was part of the coup attempt, then both Trump and Barr (and Whitaker’s) were pretty stupid in allowing Rosenstein to remain on the job.

Threadkiller

I have no clue what you are explaining, Tom.

Threadkiller

You are explaining the measures Trump and Barr has to go in order to untie a deep state Gordian knot. And I am explaining how Sessions helped tie that knot.

I was actually responding to your 2:30. Sessions recusal and Rosenstein in charge of Mueller had no negative impact on the outcome of the investigation which went greatly in Trump’s favor. While the Mueller SC was in progress and everyone was focused on it, , Horowitz and Huber/Durham quietly were conducting the investigations into the criminal actions of the Obama criminal cabal.

I am not sure of the inside game on the republican side. We do know a lot about the inside game on the Democrat side now through their own words and actions.

What we don't need is a lot of blue on blue speculation.

There is a long pattern of criminal activity under the Obama administration, much of it centered in the DoJ. from Fast & Furious to Crossfire Hurricane they have been in it up to their eyeballs

The dam is breaking. These FBI docs are incriminating. We speculated a while back that there's a snitch in all of this. Is there? How would a snitch's testimony along with these docs help us put together the big puzzle?

What does Durham have that he can prove in court and will he? How does the American public view this cesspool? What will they do about it?

It seems to me that the entire establishment is like Mr. Creosote about to explode.

Matt @ 3:01

Agree and that DC Establishment consisted of a lot of RINOs and Neocons who I imagine are sweating bullets right now. After 9/11 they collaborated with the Democrats on the Patriot Act and the warrantless surveillance that it authorized. This coincided with the rise in popularity of all the leftwing controlled social media giants, How much spying on their enemies has the DC Establishment and Deep State/Swamp performed with the assistance of the social media giants since 9/11? There is no telling how much and how corrupt they are.

One dot that hasn’t been connected yet is the odd coincidence that Comey, Mueller and Wray were all opposed to the warrantless surveillance provision in the Patriot Act and all threatened to resign if the neocons got Ashcroft’s signature while he was doped up on drugs in the hospital. It’s extremely odd that three people who took a stance in support of the 4th Amendment are now being accused of being part of the coup attempt against Trump, himself a victim of illegal spying.
