Well said. You and I are as close to 100% agreement on this issue as anyone could be. You are not going to be able to convince anyone here to believe that except for Captain Hate and maybe a couple others. In your absence from JOM I have advocated the same opinions you have on Spygate and have been ridiculed nonstop by several posters. This late in the ballgame no one is going to change their minds.

I’m looking forward to Rosenstein’s testimony next week. I hoping he drops a lot of MAGA pills that cause major conniption fits for both the Progrards and the Sundance types.

Capn, what troubles me a great deal, is the assumption that this woman was RACIST. She mentions the person she is having trouble with is AFRICAN-AMERICAN. Is that RACISM??
Who the employer to determine whether this incident was RACIST or not.

Jim,

Thank you for posting it for me - twice. Have you read his book? - more to the story and not a duplication in many ways. Well worth it. And I felt the exact way when I read it, and have ever since. He's my hero!

There was something about his life that mirrored mine, altho I am not vain enough to say that - I certainly was not that poor, or black - but it just resonated with me. I love him. He's my idol!

Threadkiller

I hoping he drops a lot of MAGA pills...

For the sake of consistency, what would a MAGA pill look like that confirms RR was springing a trap? IOW, what exactly are you looking forward to hearing?

Threadkiller

If RR says, “they fooled me, I had no idea what the SC was up to.” Would that be a MAGA pill?

Anything that proves all the irrational logic Sundance used to jump to his Spygate conclusions was totally off base.

So nothing specific?

GUS

Read this. Notice the assumptions made.
Notice that WHITE HAT Von Stein-Rosen, signed on to a FISA extension to spy on PAGE. The story is so slanted I want to vomit.

Rosenstein signed on to a SPYING WARRANT based on lies. So very WHITE HATTISH of him.

I’m not sure why you think Sundance is the enemy. He may or may not have theories that are correct, but he certainly isn’t pro-cabal.

Melinda--

Nothing in racial politics is what it appears to be. The playbooks are well-rehearsed, marked up and creased.

There are always mysterious players on the periphery who engage in property crimes, lighting fires, agitating against cops, starting fights within and across factions, leafleting disinformation to gullible media etc etc.

All flash planted for the ultimate bonfire.

Meanwhile, a different dance is afoot as we speak.

The state's attorney has taken a meeting with community leaders and supporting delegations, one of which is the 5 minister crew to which i referred earlier. It's a briefing on the legal mechanics involved- especially FBI/DOJ involvement.

Police chief: Much of riot damage caused by those from outside Minneapolis

An "all-out effort" is being made to stop the violence and destruction.

Remember When Fauci Said Masks Might Make You ‘Feel A Little Bit Better,’ But Won’t Stem Spread Of COVID-19?

Back [in March], Fauci told “60 Minutes” that face masks might make people “feel a little bit better,” but they simply don’t protect people and, instead, bring “unintended consequences.”

“When it comes to preventing coronavirus, public health officials have been clear: Healthy people do not need to wear a face mask to protect themselves from COVID-19,” CBS News reported March 8. citing Fauci.

“There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,” Fauci told “60 Minutes.”

“While masks may block some droplets, Fauci said, they do not provide the level of protection people think they do,” CBS News reported at the time. “Wearing a mask may also have unintended consequences: People who wear masks tend to touch their face more often to adjust them, which can spread germs from their hands.”

And now it's a mark of social virtue.

What did the police chief think was going to happen, thinking might be too much inference.

TK @ 2:42

Ok I’ll give you something specific. RR explaining why he signed off on the final Page FISA warrant and how it was used to spy on all the members of the Obama criminal cabal who were within 2 hops of Page.

A revelation like that would cause one of the largest nation wide conniption fits ever recorded

A sad note:

My Dad's wife, Pauline, past away Tuesday at her residence in a memory care facility where she'd been living since Aug 2019.

Pauline was 79. Dad is sad. But he's relieved that Pauline suffers no more. She's survived by her daughter.

TK @ 2:44

I agree Sundance is an ally of the MAGA movement but he is guilty of committing logical fallacies for pretty much every major point he makes and this causes him to be one of the primary sources of misinformation in the conservative movement.

Threadkiller

Do you think that RR will explain who was on the team that utilized the renewed FISA? Members of Mueller’s team? Another group altogether?

Melinda

My condolences, KK.

TK-

I expect very little from Rosenstein, other than near meltdown rhetoric from the minority side. Barr's testimony on his supervision of Rosenstein, I believe a year ago April, covered some things that have since been elided, like RR's dual permissions from Barr. I personally am still looking for Barr's testimony, myself, for confirmation, and is why I expect little from RR in front of Graham.

If DrJ happens to wander by, a quick question.

My understanding is that CA counties are all pretty much decoupling from each other regarding shutdowns and shelter-in-place.

LA will remain locked down till Heck freezes over, whereas Modoc County (0 cases, 0 deaths) has gone back to full unlock.

DrJ, you mentioned enjoying a restaurant meal and happy to have many ethnic choices. Are you strictly to-go, or do you have in-restaurant dining now?

My county is definitely dragging its heels....

Gus @ 3:07

Sundance lost all credibility when the Horowitz report was released. Sundance had convinced himself via logical fallacies that Rosenstein was part of the Obama criminal cabal. When the Horowitz report found no wrongdoing on RR's part, instead of admitting he may have been wrong about RR, Sundance doubled down on his logical fallacy. Sundance convinced himself that AG Barr is part of the Deep State Swamp and the reason the Horowitz report found no wrongdoing on RR's part was because Barr is protecting Rosenstein.

Rocco

So sorry KK, you and your loved ones are in my prayers.

Tom R

Barr's testimony on his supervision of Rosenstein, I believe a year ago April, covered some things that have since been elided, like RR's dual permissions from Barr.

On a related note, when asked what problems Sessions recusal caused, did anyone think Whitaker's answer was an evasion? Whitaker said the biggest problem the recusal caused was a bifurcation of leadership in the DOJ that caused confusion. Rosenstein was in charge of the Mueller SC and Sessions was in charge of everything else and that caused "confusion". Whitaker explicitly said that was the biggest problem.

That doesn't really seem like a problem at all which is why it makes me wonder if Whitaker was evading the question. Whitaker knows Sessions recusal didn't cause any problems whatsoever because Rosenstein was fully trusted by Trump, Sessions, Barr as well as himself.

Donald Trump Jr. on Sunday asserted that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein can’t be a real Republican because he is not a “fan” of President Donald Trump.

Rocco @ 4:11

That's very similar to Biden's "you ain't black" comment.

There are a lot of Trump voters who support his policies but are not a fan of his personality. My wife is one of them and she is a staunch Christian conservative.

If you want to bet me a $1 my bet is that Rosenstein is on Team Constitution or Team USA if you prefer. That means he follows the Constitutional rule of law and because of that Trump trusted him. I could be completely wrong about that but AG Barr treated RR like a hero for some reason so I factor that in to my opinion.
