If they come out to Southampton, it is $50 per car to park at Cooper's Beach. It is full by 0900hrs each day in the summer. One way the Village has kept oour taxes low. The Town, OTOH, is another matter. Plus my Beach Stickers are free since I am a vet.

There are people who own Million dollar McMansions and still have to pay $500 for a beach sticker if said McMansion is not their permanent domicile.

Hooked you, sucker/

So from now on it's just a matter of opening an investigation that targets the incoming AG, and voila, castrated AG? Caint be.

I think that's exactly what McCabe did which is why there's debate around whether recusal was proper.

More on those time limits on emergency authority, regarding a lawsuit by an Illinois state legislator against Pritzker:

According to the lawsuit, the Governor’s actions are not authorized by state law, as they extend beyond the 30-day time period imposed by the Illinois legislature for the Governor’s exercise of emergency powers granted under the Act.

I agree.

Tom R

CH I answered your question at the end of the last thread.

Extraneus

I think that's exactly what McCabe did which is why there's debate around whether recusal was proper.

Exactly. Who TF was McCabe to personally cripple an incoming administration with a bogus "investigation?" He and Comey should have been fired on Day 1 and replaced with trusted people before the AG and DAG were nominated.

That will certainly be the practice from now on when the WH changes parties. Mass firings of all US Attorneys and IGs, too.

Those dorks killed the FBI. No one will ever trust them again, and Wray should be canned next.

Threadkiller

Jeff Sessions “following the law” tripe is such a baby excuse. If Mr Honorable was truly that he would have quit his job right out of the gate. Advise Trump that he needed an real outsider. A shark.

The idea that Sessions had no other option than to recuse is ludicrous. He could have left the first week and said: “There are shenanigans going on here that I will not facilitate in any manner whatsoever. It is the honorable thing to do.” Instead he let it boil over until he could blackmail Trump with: “her is my resignation but it will look real bad of you fire me while you are under investigation.”

Captain Hate

One more thing on recusal: I don't think Sessions was essential to oversee the fake investigation. Just like any executive he can delegate it to a trusted underling. I know there's disagreement on the content of Rosenstein's character but the ultimate resolution of the Mueller investigation wasn't damaging to Trump no matter how much the House tried to spin it.

Threadkiller

...a real outsider.

Captain Hate

Extraneous and I are in complete agreement.

Threadkiller

the ultimate resolution of the Mueller investigation wasn't damaging to Trump

Time lost that would have been resolved much sooner if Ryan let Nunes complete his investigation. Instead, Ryan helped the Dems investigate Nunes. The 50 some transcripts all shared a common theme; everyone who worked for Obama said the Russian collusion didn’t happen. Those interviews needed to happen at the beginning of 2017.

Mueller could have wrapped it up in 2 months, if a Special Counsel was truly necessary. Then it is Durham time.

Shipwreckedcrew maintains that Rosenstein was too disconnected from the SC, and I think that is the most charitable I can be on him as well.

Extraneus

If Rosenstein had Trump's back, Sessions' recusal wouldn't have made the slightest difference because Rosenstein would have shut down Comey and McCabe in a heartbeat. Another Sessions boner.

MissMarple2

As I told Kev at the end of the last thread, Sessions did NOT notify the President before recusing and I still don't understand why Sessions didn't take Homeland Security (with immigration) rather than INSIST on Justice.

"I take it back: there is something in the US Code that there was a debate at the time of the recusal of whether Sessions was violating by not recusing himself."

A Debate about an issue is not the same thing as making one side right and the other side wrong.

Of course there was a debate: the Recusal Rocket had been launched and all forces meant to get it done.

Like taking out Flynn.

Willowed #3:

Also, of course many states have laws on their books that empower their governor with emergency powers.

Even so, NO such law is legal if it violates the Constitution of the US.

So it is not just "the people" or the "legislature" that can serve as brakes on a Tyrant, it is the POTUS and his DoJ and ultimately SCOTUS that can stop the madness.

Judging by progress to date, if this is all just a test run to see how far they can push the people away from their rights and liberties, well the Progs must be happy as clams.

People are being real stupid letting this continue.

Captain Hate

Tom, I think you let your personal sense of right and wrong skew how you regard big decisions. Taken to a ridiculous level, your defense of the TR commander could be applied to someone at D Day who held his troops back from participating in the first wave; history wouldn't consider that person a hero.

I feel bad for how things shook out for Sessions (as sorry as I can feel for someone with a net worth that dwarfs mine) but you're completely discounting that through time and personal interactions, Trump may have figured out he wasn't the person he was hoping he was. Executives make hard decisions that aren't instantly popular or easy to understand.

Captain Hate

To be clear, I'm not arguing against anything OL said.

Jack is Back!

rse,

As our local Publix manager explained to me in terms of logistics, is that their busy season is November to April-May when the snowbirds are here. I know at our club it gets close to doubliing the population.

So, supply chain guys schedule more trucks per week during that time period to stock the stores. After the big influx goes back home, you don't need a truck a day but maybe 2 a week.

I bet the same applies in reverse seasons in Southampton. It is pretty much a skeleton of itself from November to late May. And Citarella, Stop and Shop and King Kullen get the same supply chain dynamic that Publix, Winn-Dixie and other chains get here in the summer.

CoVid19 has kept the Hamptons at near summer levels of shoppers and users. It affects not only the supply chain but transportation, warehousing, and with a lot of workers out, labor intensity.

--For OL and any others NOT surprised that one now goes to Harvard Bus School to learn how to reimagine capitalism.--

And that is why I hate the term capitalism. You can't reimagine a free market because a free market is two persons voluntarily making an exchange at a freely and mutually agreed upon price. Change any of those elements and it is no longer free or a market.
But capital can exist in any but the most purely Marxist system, including ones entirely devoid of freedom and markets.

--But Ig---Gundry is not first line.

Don't tell Gundry that.

--You still intermittently fasting?--

Intermittently.

--#1. No one should be punished for doing the ethical right thing and following the rule of law.--

But McCarthy points out it was not the law if it was a counterintel investigation.
Even more importantly, it demonstrates the need of a conservative being pressured to "follow the rule of law" to do his due diligence and make sure that is what he is being urged to do and not being urged get out of the way of a political hitjob, which is a failure of both him and Rosenstein.

Threadkiller

I still don't understand why Sessions didn't take Homeland Security (with immigration) rather than INSIST on Justice.

It is the difference between a Participant Ribbon and a Gold Medal. The DoJ is way more powerful than Homeland Security. Sessions planned on effecting change that could only be accomplished from the position of AG, and I commend him for that.

Unfortunately Sessions wandered into the office looking like GrandPa Joe trying to take in all the wonders of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

Threadkiller

I think your knowledge and understanding of the law compared to Turley’s is minuscule.

We agree.

Tom R

Trump may have figured out he wasn't the person he was hoping he was.

Unfortunately that appears to be the case. Trump was being truthful when he said the AG was supposed to protect the POTUS. I always those tweets were kabuki intended TK trigger low IQ Progtards.

Oh, I forgot to ask. Would you mind quoting my comment that disputed “the law?”

I am pleased to report that my older granddaughter is NOT pleased with Joe Biden and not only was aware he is a racist but a crook, and had already listened to those tapes from Ukraine.

She said that she may not vote for the President, but she will NOT vote for Biden.

Captain Hate

You're putting too many eggs in that basket. Trump may have not liked other aspects of how he did his job. I'm imagining DJT being a very demanding hardass to work for and someone stuck in the slow motion way of doing things in the Senate for decades may have been a poor fit. I'm thinking a Ric Grenell type is much more what he was hoping to get.

Threadkiller

That is good news, MM!

The Infamous Ignatz

To expand on my 10:43 Sessions only options were not recuse immediately, resign or not take the job at all.
The investigation being conducted was an illegal political hitjob. In that case upholding the rule of law AND protecting the president are one and the same.
All the coup plotters knew it was a farce. The intelligence and knowledge proving that was available to Sessions and Rosenstein with a little digging.
No law ever requires an AG or anyone else to step aside so an illegal act can occur. Just the opposite.
Sessions or Rosenstein doing their job right would have dug into the claims and supposed predicate underlying the cause of any investigation of the president and would have been to fire the people responsible and prosecute any of them who committed crimes and explain to the American people what happened.
As to optics; what better optics than this anti-American cabal exposed and shamed three years ago and Trump's presidency unencumbered by three years of a false inquisition?

Tom R

TK @ 10:45

Jeff Sessions “following the law” tripe is such a baby excuse.

If your opinion on Sessions recusal differs from Turley’s, on what basis do you or anyone else here think your opinion is correct while Turley’s is wrong?

Before someone invokes an appeal to authority fallacy, I’m operating under the belief a Constitutional law professor who defended Trump during the impeachment proceedings has superior knowledge of the rule of law over anyone here at JOM.

Threadkiller

You have a reading comprehension problem, Tom.

“A” is a “ a baby excuse” because “B” was available. Get it?

Or are you suggesting “the law” didn’t allow Sessions to quit his first week?

Extraneus

Sessions or Rosenstein doing their job right would have dug into the claims and supposed predicate underlying the cause of any investigation of the president and would have been to fire the people responsible and prosecute any of them who committed crimes and explain to the American people what happened.

Exactly. And Sessions had the benefit of knowing personally that the Russia hoax was indeed a hoax. He didn't even have to dig into it to know that.

Threadkiller

And Sessions had the benefit of knowing personally that the Russia hoax was indeed a hoax.

Sessions recent memo to his fan club suggested exactly that. He trys to blur the timeline, but it is clear he knew early on there was a big issue at DoJ.

Tom R

As to optics; what better optics than this anti-American cabal exposed and shamed three years ago and Trump's presidency unencumbered by three years of a false inquisition?

The optics of Mueller proving that the allegations of Trump colluding with the Russians were false are infinitely superior to the optics of the 3+ years of Democrats and Fake News media accusing Trump of shutting down the investigations and firing the patriotic FBI agents protecting the country because he knew he was guilty of colluding with the Russians. It would have also been impossible to get convictions for the coup plotters under that scenario.

The way reality has played out is beyond beneficial for Trump and maximizes the chances of getting convictions.

GUS

Tk, Sessions will be history in a few months. He can go back to napping.

Captain Hate

In case anyone thinks I automatically agree with Trump's personnel decisions, I'd have sent that annoying squeaking rodent, dear sweet Kellyanne, packing the first time her fat slob husband made an ass out of himself by parlaying his marital status into getting the enemedia to look at him.

But that's why the Golden Scalpweasel is the big dog and I'm not.

Threadkiller

My bet, Gus, is that Sessions declares war on Trump after Tuberville wins. He once said something to the effect of “I didn’t write a ‘tell all’ book when I could have done just like everyone else.”

Tom R

...and would have been to fire the people responsible and prosecute any of them who committed crimes and explain to the American people what happened.

IMO zero chance of getting any convictions following that course of action.

GUS

TK, Sessions got sandbagged by a comedian with a lisp. Once Tuberville mops the floor with him, he's toast. Burnt toats.
Sessions is a wannabee. So he could have written a book. MEIN KAMPF.

Sessions will fail with the book deal because Trump and Tuberville will have already won.

Captain Hate

The investigation being conducted was an illegal political hitjob.

We knew this but the enemedia started pimping Russia, Russia, Russia immediately after the election. Paul Ryan was conducting things in the House as if it was a proven fact as did Burr in the Senate. I don't think there was a realistic option other than a Mueller type investigation to get the majority of the public on board. Hell, the loons on Patterico's monkey island still consider it to have happened beyond any room for debate.

Rocco

And Trump wanted Sessions to investigate Hillary, which he ignored, until he was forced. So to appease those pesky house guys, he appoints Huber to whitewash the investigation. Perhaps that also has something to do with Trump's opinion of the guy.

I’m out of here before any “here we go again” comments pop up.

Hopefully you can diagram my 10:20, Tom, and confess your error at least to yourself. Your debate skills will improve.

--Before someone invokes an appeal to authority fallacy, I’m operating under the belief a Constitutional law professor who defended Trump during the impeachment proceedings has superior knowledge of the rule of law over anyone here at JOM.--

Your explanation to defuse the "appeal to authority" argument is kind of the textbook definition of an appeal to authority. Explaining the bona fides of the authority you're appealing to cements the fallacy, it doesn't resolve it.
If he were not qualified to have an opinion then you would be guilty of the less common "appealing to just some guy" fallacy.

Andrew McCarthy is arguably at least as authoritative on this subject and has come to the opposite conclusion from Turley so we have the examine their arguments not their qualifications.
I find McCarthy's more persuasive.

Rocco

I'm out too, my granddaughter spent the evening in the ER, she sprained her ankle jumping on a trampoline. She's fine, x-rays were ok and today she misses her Nana and Bumpa. So Nana made cupcakes which is something they used to do together every Saturday, then we're off for a visit.

Oh, and I have a son who lives in BERlin MA.

Tom R

JMH @ 11:23

If believing a subject matter expert like Turley and AG Barr understand the law better than pundits is an appeal to authority, what logical fallacy describes the belief that pundits understand the law better than Barr and Turley? An appeal to ignorance?

Henry,

The FBI "Inspection", at this date in time, simply freezes information and kicks the can down past the election. Rather than see it as Wray finally getting on board, I see it serving his masters in the Deep State.

What, in this case with SWC, and in so many other cases with McCarthy, at some point they imagine they live in a Jimmy Stewart Justice World where lawyers could be assumed to have honor and integrity and respect for the rule of law.

Joke's on them.

While some lawyers of course still deserve that, the "right to assume" it is long gone. In fact, assume that at your own risk.

Extraneus

Good link to SWC, TK. Except maybe for this part:

Depending on the size of the office undergoing the inspection, the number of Inspectors can range anywhere from 20 to 100, and the process can take anywhere from a 10 days to two weeks

:-)

Do you find McCarthy’s argument more persuasive because it triggers your confirmation bias? Since IANAL when it comes to Constitutional legal matters my confirmation bias gets triggered by people who I consider to be legal subject matter experts. Turley is a liberal Democrat who does not allow partisan politics to compromise his integrity. McCarthy is now a full fledged pundit. Whose argument has the most legal merit? IDK but I think Turley has more integrity than McCarthy.

I do think it's important to remember that we all now have a very large body of knowledge about the coup that we didn't have back in March and Sessions didn't either.

Yes, he got rolled but early days in an administration, especially the Trump administration that was being fought already by the swamp on every level, is an extremely challenging time.

The recusal seemed like the right thing to do in part because the law is pretty clear and also because if Sessions hadn't recused, the opposition would have clamored that it was against regulation not to do so and then that would have become the story. They were determined to get a special counsel on something and I doubt they would have failed to do so.

Sessions had his eyes on his big plans for immigration and human trafficking - which is why Trump hired him and on which he did an excellent job - and the snakes took advantage. I don't think there's much point in overcomplicating it.

Tom R is right that Sessions would destroy Tuberville in a debate. Sessions is clearly the better choice for AL senator IMO but there's too much water under the bridge both in Alabama and with Trump.

If Trump had known, or discovered quickly, the plot that was afoot, he would have unceremoniously shut it down and not cared one whit how the media portrayed it because he'd have known he'd be able to govern unencumbered by corrupt investigators.

Ralph L asked about governors' emergency powers expiring - they certainly do and the law is pretty clear in most states.

I think I agree with this. McCarthy has consistently avoided facing reality about the behavior of his championed swamp buddies and swamp policy until he is absolutely forced to. Turley does the opposite, taking tough legal stands even though it costs him professionally and socially.

Porchlight

BTW, Parscale seems to have his eye on Oregon and has done so since at least 2019. Portland is worn down by homeless and Antifa and is taking a huge economic hit thanks in part to Brown who is very unpopular. Maybe they can make Dems defend the state.

--IDK but I think Turley has more integrity than McCarthy.--

--I think I agree with this.--

LOL.
Sorry for laughing but this seems like a variation on the argument from authority fallacy; the my authority is more authoritative than your authority fallacy.

It's pretty simple; if Sessions was required by law to recuse from a criminal investigation but not a counterintel one then it doesn't matter what a martyr Turley is, nor what a chump McCarthy is.
Moreover the continuing argument elides the fact that sufficient information was available to both Sessions and Rosenstein at the time to suss out an illegal coup was in motion that their very own department was participating in and their primary duty as AG and deputy AG was to snuff it out, not facilitate it and give it free reign.

Narciso

I just came from the beach, i linked the montes bradley piece from last nighr about the network headed by al suri which tied two plots twenty years apart.

My house was gutted and they turned my 2nd floor into 3 master suites, took out the fireplace, and made the 3rd floor a children's area. Will individual families pay those rates or will people return to vacationing with multiple families? They better be ready to cook.

Sounds like just the guy to lead an investigation of a president.

Tom R

if Sessions hadn't recused, the opposition would have clamored that it was against regulation not to do so and then that would have become the story.

On top of that, Turley points out had Sessions or Rosenstein behaved like a consigliere and shutdown the investigations into Russian collusion, that would have given the Democrats and NeverTrumper RINOs enough ammunition to impeach Trump in 2017 and with all the Nevertrumpers/RINOS in the House and Senate getting paid off by the ChiComms/globalists who knows how that turns out.

I was listening to President Trump speak in Michigan, and it suddenly occurred to me that while he is very smart and hard-working, he is also a romantic, which is why he is such a good salesman and builder.

He was painting a word picture about Coney Island and his childhood, and in my mind's eye I could see the Coney Island of Cincinnati and the old Riverside Amusement Park we had here in Indy. I could imagine he was planting the idea of an amusement park outside of Detroit with lots of potential beginner jobs for kids.

He sees the same thing in people. Dan Scavino worked for him originally as a caddy, and has been promoted and given more responsibility as he has shown potential. Brad Parscale started out as his IT guy, and now he's his campaign manager.

You guys realize that there's enough wiggle room in how words are used to make either side of the recusal argument plausible, right?
