Hugh Hewitt

@hughhewitt

To repeat: Don’t argue with ⁦@shipwreckedcrew

Lots and lots of years prosecuting bad folks as an AUSA for DOJ far from the building where the intrigues played out.

Hughsless Blewitt has a hard on.

A couple of days ago he tweeted out that SWC’s spouse is in Federal law enforcement. Coupling that with a curious tweet from SWC last week, which I am not going to search for, I am 25/75 that SWC is a chick.

Old Lurker

Lyle, that cannot be true. Peggy Noonan would have sensed the "mistake" and corrected Chuck immediately.

Amirite?

MissMarple2

The President retweeted this.

I dont think so, there were little suggestions of that, a 22 year federal prosecutor in seattle.

It’s just perfect that the person Chuck effing Toad was speaking to on his execrable “news” show where he edited Barr was...Dame Peggy Noonan.

Noonan sure breathlessly slobbered over the first half-black gay man prez. If Big Mike gets the veep nod, she might pass out in sexual delirium.

Charlie's Vague Reopening Plan

Just stick "splunge" on the little golf flags and we're good to go.

Old Lurker

Add 100,000 extra deaths for Covid and it still rounds to .009. Look what we did, are doing, and will do for a rounding error. Now measure how many extra non covid deaths we have gotten and will get from the strain placed on we 333,768,000.

PS, yes Iggy. I know they are all real people. Just as are those who will die from the medicine they made us take.

Wow. An Evers admin attorney just told the Dentistry Examining Board that dentists can ignore @GovEvers order banning non-emergency dental care and that they won't be enforced against. This contradicts previous guidance. This administration is confused and confusing.

The Obama coup has run all these years, but it’s reached the end of the line. The investigations are turning back on their instigator as Spygate and its minions gives way to Obamagate. The new phase will reach beyond the henchmen to the political operatives who were giving the orders. And to their boss.

Beyond Spygate lie the Spymasters and beyond them, the Master of the Spymasters.

Obama operatives committed treason for political gain. Only one man had the power to command them, to reward them, and to bring together the forces that spied on men, women, and on a nation.

Obamagate is not just the reckoning the nation needs: it’s the reckoning that the rule of law deserves.

CNN’s Brian Stelter Melts Down Over Conservative Media Exposing Russiagate Conspiracies

“The death toll isn’t something that can just be downplayed. It’s not something we can hide from, even if it is gut-wrenching to hear about everyday. It’s like New Orleans floods every day. It’s like the planes go into the towers every day, and to look away or act like it’s now normal or acceptable, is a disgrace to the victims,” Stelter said on “Reliable Sources.” “It’s so disappointing to look at what we’re seeing from right-wing media these days where there’s such an obsession with the deep-state, and these revelations with the Russia probe, and the decision about Michael Flynn.”

These are the same guys who were complaining about Trump tweeting too much yesterday. Of course, that's because he was tweeting links to their competitors.

Grimes shares cute video of Elon Musk holding baby boy X Æ A-12

They’re still working to figure out how to pronounce his name, which could become a moot argument if California law rules it’s not a legal moniker.

Under the state constitution, an approved name can only use the 26 alphabetical characters of the English language — and no other symbols, CNN reported.

Dave, do you remember Sergio Zamora from Jazz Corner? He died in his sleep last night age 48. He was as big as a house, at least 350, and surely had sleep apnea. I never met him but those that did said he was just as nice, and funny and smart, in real life as online.

They all seem to be trying to hang Comey to save themselves. {snipped} That would explain Comey's otherwise hard to reconcile insubordination re: Lynch and Yates.
Posted by: Extraneus | May 10, 2020 at 02:01 PM

The first sentence is true and if you follow DawsonSFields over the past couple of years you know why the Obama criminal cabal were trying to pin all the blame on Comey. The Democrats were livid with what Comey did to screw over Hillary twice. The Democrats still expected Hillary to win despite Comey reopening the Hillary email server case due to the Weiner laptop discovery. Comey's head likely would have been the first one on the chopping block had Hillary won. McCabe gets elevated to Director thanks to him being a Hillary loyalist.

One other thing to keep in mind is the expectation that Hillary and the Democrats were likely planning to use the "Russian collusion" fake allegations to destroy Trump financially after Hillary took office.

When Trump actually won it caused a panic because all the conspirators knew the S was about to HTF and their corruption would soon be uncovered. At that point their focus turned on saving their own hides by trying to make Comey the scapegoat and make it appear he was the ringleader of it all.

If we assume Brennan, Clapper, McCabe and Yates are all corrupt bad guys, what is yet to be explained is why Comey was at odds with all of them. Brennan, Clapper and Yates wanted Comey to brief Trump on Flynn because they wanted Trump to fire Flynn. One logical explanation for why Comey refused to do what they wanted is because he knew they were all trying to make him the scapegoat.

Fed's Q2 GDP Estimate At -34.90%... So What Now?

I bet it will be closer to -10%. Lots of states already reopening, probably all in June (except Wisconsin). But what do you expect when 50 governors shut down half the economy?

What now? Reopen!

James D.

Now that I understand the rules, my revised guess is that Joe will pick himself as his VP candidate.

Can’t you just picture the thought process? If he’s his own CP then (1) he can’t be impeached because he’d just take over afterwards, and (2) if he died he’d still be VP and assume office after the funeral.

henry

jimmyk, we’re saved. Evers just reopened drive in movies. Plus strip mall and stand alone retail (max 5 customers in store at a time).

jimmyk

RIP Jerry Stiller. I used to see him walking around the UWS, looking a bit like a homeless guy. A good long life, though.

jimmyk

henry, I didn't know drive-in movies were still a thing. I guess they'll be a big thing for a month or so. Or maybe they'll make a big comeback. Hard to understand why they would have closed, unless our overlords were worried about what might go on inside the car.

Nice reminiscence video over at Outhouse of Jerry Stiller on how he joined Seinfeld. I'd forgotten he replaced someone as George's father. The character was supposed to be quiet and tolerant of his wife's screaming, but he didn't think that really worked, so he spontaneously screamed back in rehearsal and that was that.
