I know some here aren't crazy about PJ Media (or maybe that was just Captain Hate) but this thread from last night has some great stuff:

https://pjmedia.com/liveblog/2020/08/19/night-3-liveblogging-the-2020-democratic-national-convention

Oh, and First

Oh and the press isn't oppositional to everything Trump says, even if it costs 100,000 lives?

Old Lurker

Willowed of course:

MM quoting Turley "The work of the office has obviously continued as promised by Barr in an independent fashion."

Another big failure not challenging the Total BS that some how the DoJ and its officers are independent of the Chief Executive of the US.

That is a big lie that now is accepted as gospel.

And like other things, will not end well for the Constitutional Republic intended.

Hes thr former spymaster.

James D.

he has trouble denouncing Putin or David Duke or questions about Kamala Harris' eligibility for the VP slot or any other damn thing because he can't give the press the satisfaction.

and this is different than pretty much any other politician ever how, exactly...?

Oh, right. It's only ever conservatives who get asked these questions. Nobody in the MSM ever asked Bernie Sanders what he thought about BernieBro and would-be assassin Hodgkinson. Nobody's asking any Dems about lunatic anti-semitie Linda Sansour. Etc etc etc etc etc

Narciso

Three hundred mercs on the syrian plain of deir er zour would disagree.

James D.

And by the way, re: QAnon...

Pedophilia and human trafficking in high places isn't exactly a "conspiracy theory", is it?

Epstein was convicted of pedophilia in 2008 or so, he was known as a pedo well before that, and the Dems were happily taking his money up until shortly before he died, as was Harvard, and MIT, and no doubt many other "elite" institutions. Bill Clinton was flying on his plane and lots of Dems and Wall Streeters and Hollywood types were going to his parties. Hell, George Stephanoloupos went to them, too.

It's not a conspiracy when the pedophile is out in the open and everyone in "respectable circles" is happy to associate with him.

Narciso

Naturally Trump didn't disavow [blah] because he is oppositional - he has trouble denouncing [blah, blah, blahhh!] or any other damn [blah] because he can't give the press the satisfaction.

Uh huh...

Riddle me this then, what satisfaction is this non-oppositional press looking for?

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

A comment on Hillary's speech last night:

"Hillary Clinton may be a bitter, pathetic woman but none of us will ever truly understand the hell she went through to sober up long enough to record that video for the DNC. Our thoughts are with her and whichever members of her household staff she verbally abused while going through her DTs. I sincerely hope there were no puppies around to kick.”

Narciso

The people who ijstan5ly deemed kavanaugh a rapist sandmann a rapist and are still following the russiam snipe hunt.

James D.

Oh, and also on the "conspiracy" angle again...

Weinstein was a rapist and sexual predator and all-around perv, and everyone in "elite" circles knew it going back to the 1990's. That didn't stop the DNC or prominent Dems from taking his cash and going to his parties. It didn't stop Obama from sending his daughter to intern with him.

I could go on and on and on, but the point is, TM, it's not a fucking conspiracy theory. We KNOW for a fact that a LOT of our so-called elites in DC and NYC and Hollywood are pedos and rapists and perverts. We KNOW that all our elites knew the whole time and didn't give a crap because it was never THEIR daughters getting raped and abused, just the daughters of unimportant flyover deplorable vermin. Like us.

So go ahead and mock Trump, and vote for Biden and continue to lie to yourself that everyone else is decent and moderate and upstanding except for the rude Orange Man.

The SDNY is a rats nest of perfidy.

Isn't SDNY under Trump and Barr? I realize the rot runs deep, and there are a thousand rats' nests to flush out, but SDNY would seem to be a top priority. I read somewhere that Trump didn't choose Berman, who seems to have been a swamp creature. So only in year 4 did he put someone in, Jay Clayton, who from what I can tell is still awaiting confirmation. Is there no way to disinfect the place?

He made a statement about it at the presser before the Iraqi meeting this morning.

To sum up:

I didn't like this group doing that. It was unprofessional and they had a lot of problems with quality.

Bannon wasn't with our team for long. I don't know what all is charged as I have only seen brief press reports about it.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

It feels to me like they are going after everyone with ties to Trump signalling that all Trumpers 'will get theirs'. By any means necessary.

I saw the President's comments about the Bannon business this morning. He emphatically disassociated himself with Bannon and the We Build The Wall effort/scheme. Even so, when Fox cut to Cavuto at the top of the hour, he and the gleeful reporter seemed to miss or downplay the President's definitive statement. I can see why the President is frustrated with Fox.

MissMarple2

Stephanie,

I think so, too, although if that is their motive, it looks a lot like panic and desperation to me.

I follow enough weirdo stuff on the internet that it is possible that President Trump could spring some surprises next week, both with the quality of the convention and some super-surpise guests, maybe some arrests as well.

Jame,

For one thing they run the White House Correspondents' Dinner, which is a big event in Washington.

I think they also award some scholarships.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

I donated $100 to ‘We build the wall’.

So did I and got the same email. As they got organized, they found that they had to jump through certain hoops to organize as a certain type of charity and they sent out the disclaimer as they did initially claim that all proceeds would go toward the costs of the wall.

Melinda

And Jon Karl would no longer have complete control over who gets to attend the WH Press conferences. It's currently at his sole discretion, as Preezy of the WHCA.

Melinda

I think she'd also get a say on Air Force 1 seats.

Rocco

Not sure if this is correct, from thedonald.win

Looks like SDNY is conflating two things. The original GoFundMe campaign promised 100% of funds would to go to the wall and if 1 billion was not raise all donations would be refunded. They did not not reach that goal so they created the "We Build The Wall" non-profit. Donors to the original GoFundMe campaign were then given the option to get a refund or redirect to the new non-profit.

The new non-profit never promised 100% of funds will go to border wall construction. Some of the funds had to be used to pay private land owners for right to build on their property and other corps were used for this purpose. I am sure some was used for salaries and expenses, etc.

It's still possible that some lined their pockets but the fact that it's SDNY the TIMING and the above conflation STINKS of a political hit job.

This is the guy who determines who gets to attend the White House press conferences.

jimmyk

I'm going to wager that Bannon will be cleared. He doesn't seem stupid (or Democrat) enough to try to get away with something like that. It probably has something to do with what's mentioned in the 1:22 tweet, that they raised the money and weren't allowed to spend it on what they raised it for, and not everyone asked for a refund, so there was some issue about what do with it. If Bannon did pocket it then he deserves whatever he gets, it just seems implausible to me.

But it will get dragged on past Nov 4th and used against Trump, even though Trump had nothing to do with it.

Only Mirengoff could write something this fatuous:

Obama never showed interest in finding common ground with Republicans. Sure, many Republicans weren’t interested in working with Obama, just as many Democrats aren’t interested in working with Trump. However, Obama couldn’t even find common ground with Susan Collins on health insurance/care. He rammed through Obamacare without the support of a single GOP Senator.

The Repukes barely pushed back on ANYTHING Zippy did. Because “that’s not who we are!”

and with the media turning their lonely gaze upon them, we are going to be regaled with the most repellent and bizarre postings they could find (and it would not surprise me in the least if many of the ones that get flagged up were written by the journalists doing the flagging up). maybe cnn can get their doxxing unit and show up at random homes and pester the residents about re-tweeting some meme. speaking truth to power-showing up at an elderly woman's door about a frog meme she retweeted weeks past.

jimmyk,

Coupled with that set-up question at the press conference about Q which could have been asked at any time over the last 2 weeks and the ABC coverage in their nightly news show and then Obama's speech charging corruption last night and Bannon's being charged today, I would say it seems like a coordinated effort, myself.

I would also say that we will discover down the road some exculpatory evidence which "accidentally" got "overlooked."

I also hope that Karl is forced to cover the arrest of some Satanic cannibals, if for no other reason than to see Karl mocked.

Coordinated:

The Hill joins in:

BREAKING: President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., is seeking to distance himself from the “We Build the Wall” crowdfunding campaign, which had a website that said he endorsed the organization, after former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon and three others were arrested and charged with defrauding donors.

“Don gave one speech at a single We Build the Wall event over a year ago with a group of angel moms and besides that, has no involvement with their organization,” his spokesperson said, while adding that he “never gave them permission to use him as a testimonial on their website and was unaware they included him as one until today’s media reports about it."

Karl must have had his feathers ruffled because the President deftly handled that set up question about cannibals and pedophiles. Even the reporter who asked the question had to laugh.

According to the panelist’s Wake Forest University bio, J Mai is a “Black-Vietnamese, transgender nonbinary/gender transcendent mermaid Queen-King,” who recently became a “licensed minister in the Progressive National Baptist Church.”

1) On Bannon: stop with the wailing and gnashing of teeth and rending of garments. Steve's a big boy. He runs lots of projects. He knows that the slightest messy bookkeeping can result in this.

2) Don't miss the bigger picture.

3) THEY. ROLLED. THIS. OUT. TWO. MONTHS. EARLY.

4) Don't think they haven't sat on this for a while. The question isn't "why" but "why now?"

5) This is 2016 all over again with "Access Hollywood," except far more desperate.

6) Steve knows he's a pawn in this game and the fact they did this in AUGUST should tell you all you need to know.

7) They are losing.

They are losing huge. I sense they may now truly be afraid they will lose the House as well. But they know Trump . . .

7) contd . . . is going to crush Demented Perv Biteme. I think now, esp. after yesterday's public polling showing MN even, we are looking at over 340 EVs.
