Captain Hate

It's pretty funny how unsurprising it is that Toobin would be caught spanking his monkey on Zoom.

Porchlight

I have 16 tabs open in this window, and 13 in another window.

And I still can't get to all the links.

And that doesn't include the 14 tabs open in my work window.

This is insane.

peter

Greg Gutfeld now making fun of JefToob

Porchlight

Yes, peter, with the rapid test, could be a plain old false positive.

When do you take your next test?

Marlene

Good thoughts for you and your family, peter!

Porchlight

JiB, you were right on FL on the last thread. I apologize, I was mixing up a FL twitter thread with an NC twitter thread about Dem benchmarks.

The 2nd Circ. unanimously affirmed an order rejecting Ghislaine Maxwell's "meritless arguments that her interests superseded the presumption of access,” paving the way for the release of her allegedly incriminating deposition.

Peter, kick WuFlu's ass.

Not a prob Porch but how do you keep so many tabs open?

I don’t think I have ever had more than 3 open. Neanderthal computer owner.

"This is the worst possible timing for him as he's supposed to be Prog Expert on SCOTUS."

This is the true juicy part of the Hunter laptop... confirmed by other sources. How much of the $200 million went to SloJoe, or Kerry, or Odumbo?

BREAKING: Hunter Biden associate’s emails reveal details of deal with fmr Moscow mayors wife to launder funds into the US in avoidance of sanctions, Devon Archer claimed firm received $200M - @OANN

JM Hanes

I too know multi-tab sorrow! In two separate browsers. Eventually, some site will start hogging resources and slowing things down, forcing me to choose between the ones I really want to read, and the ones I think I ought to want to read.

henry

The info from above.

BeastsEngland

’Devon Archer claimed firm received $200M’

The DNC conference room probably needs a Kevin Bacon ‘Remain calm! All is well!’ .gif at the moment. :)

JM Hanes

Porchlight:

You must have been talking to Stephen Green (Vodka Pundit):

[A]lmost every indicator other than the big polls says the same thing: Donald Trump is going to win.

He wants folks to pay for VIP membership to hear the details, but we Porchlight groupies don't need to ante up!

BeastsEngland

‘You fucked up, you trusted us.’ works as well...

henry

When the Germans #zoomdick Pearl Harbor...

Porchlight

JMH, maybe Stephen Green hangs out here. :)

Of course I'm not the only one saying it but thank you for the kind words!

BeastsEngland

Nice, henry!!

Jane

Sheesh Peter that sucks! Mostly because it hangs over your head for 2 weeks! Hang tough!

jimmyk

Some do but he didn't know he was being filmed. As I understand it...

I've heard of some incidents where someone was in a Zoom meeting and only in business dress from the waist up, and without thinking stood up during the meeting. But not naked, maybe at worst in boxers. Or briefs. Anyway, it doesn't sound like that's what happened with Toobin. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

jimmyk

peter, sorry to hear that. As we've discussed, the rules and regs are the problem more than the dreaded disease itself, which is unlikely to be worse than a chest cold, if that. Keep us posted, though. TK had it a bit worse.

Are you taking zinc/quercetin/vitamin D/vitamin C? Just in case amom is awol.

Porchlight

If you read the Vice article on Toobin (for once I'm glad Vice doesn't hold back on seamy details) it is quite clear that Toobin had two Zooms going at the same time and got them mixed up.

He pointed the camera at himself thinking he was on one, but clearly was on the other.

So, the other one was with.....??? His wife would love to know.

Maybe she should ask CHYNA.

Lol, does it get any better than this? Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett will be confirmed in the Senate, and Jeffrey Toobin will be sitting in a hotel room by himself watching his colleagues on CNN sobbing, and NO ONE will be asking him for his opinion.

Porchlight

peter, let me send you the info anonamom sent me when my dad was sick (turns out not with rona).

Jane

Sydney Powell, Tom fitten and John Solomon tearing down the FBI re; Biden, on Lou Dobbs. Worth seeing.

MJW

If it isn't Hunter's computer then why would his lawyer be asking for records from the repair shop. I have zero doubts it's his computer for several other reasons.

I have little to no doubt it's Hunter's computer, but that doesn't mean it's okay to overstate what the email says. Overstating evidence undermines credibility. Though it may not be the most liklely explanation, the lawyer could have been checking to see if the shop actually had Hunter's computer, rather than asking for it back.

Porchlight

JMH, there has to be a bookmark scheme easier than the normal one.

I'm sure there's one out there. I just need one tab with all the stuff I plan to read clearly linked and labeled.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

-- Hunter Biden associate’s emails reveal details of deal with fmr Moscow mayors wife to launder funds into the US in avoidance of sanctions, Devon Archer claimed firm received $200M --

Dammit! Joe was telling the truth when he angrily denounced Trump for alleging Hunter got $3.5 million from the mayor's wife!
Obviously he was ticked off that Trump was slighting his spawn's splendid shadiness by a factor of 50 or 60.

jimmyk

pondered the absurdity that such an event can’t be immediately dismissed.

My thinking precisely, Beasts. But if it's a federal crime I suppose Trump would pardon him. Speaking of which, I'd forgotten about this travesty:

Queen Elizabeth II has approved a rare royal pardon for an inmate convicted of murder who used a narwhal tusk to help stop a terrorist attack in which two people were killed before the assailant was killed by the police on London Bridge. The decision to pardon the murderer, Steven Gallant, was in recognition of 'his exceptionally brave actions,' which 'helped save people’s lives despite the tremendous risk to his own,' a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Justice said in a statement on Monday

https://althouse.blogspot.com/2020/10/queen-elizabeth-ii-has-approved-rare.html

Long live the Queen!

Captain Hate

If you read the Vice article on Toobin (for once I'm glad Vice doesn't hold back on seamy details) it is quite clear that Toobin had two Zooms going at the same time and got them mixed up.

What does that tell you about the cognitive ability and attention to detail of CNN's legal expert?

@EmeraldRobinson
We've reached the point in our nation's history where one computer repair guy in Delaware has done more to stop corruption than the entire federal law enforcement community.

jimmyk

Toobin had two Zooms going at the same time and got them mixed up.

I'm overdosing on schadenfreude this week.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Eventually, some site will start hogging resources and slowing things down, forcing me to choose between the ones I really want to read, and the ones I think I ought to want to read.--

Yep. About to prune and then reboot since once it gets hinky it stays there and slows Word too.
DocJ says my memory is lacking. Funny, my daughter says the same thing.

JM Hanes

Whoa, Ignatz:

I misread it as $200K and assumed that was just their skim.

Captain Hate

It would take a heart of stone not to laugh at this

https://mobile.twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/1318085497080590337

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

That guy with the narwhal tusk was convicted of murder?
Are we sure about that?

henry

CH, the whole time... I’m thinking, “Ma’am, it’s a republic”

James D.

OMG, just saw the Toobin thing. Hahahahaha couldn't happen to a bigger jerk.

Yes it could!

Not that Toobin doesn't absolutely deserve it, but I think there are bigger jerks than him out there. Or at least it's a competition.

Personally, if I had to pick one person to have their career destroyed by sending a dick pic to the wrong Zoom call, it might be Ben Rhodes.

JM Hanes

Can you imagine sitting in the Zoom meeting when the Toobin video suddenly appeared onscreen? Pretty startling. How long did it take for Toobin et al to figure out they had a technical problem?

JM Hanes

Probably should have just gone looking for the Vice article.

henry

The SMOD was click bait, I hope this Taunami warning is equally lame.

Jack Lillywhite

Iggy,

Yes. Murder.

Tom R

I'm not a big fan of Gatewaypundit but clarice's 5:11 is a must read. I saw that Biden ad a few days ago and it immediately triggered my Bullshit Detector. Patty McMurray at GWP totally exposes the blatant disinformation in the ad.

JM Hanes

James Woods linked to this article by Andrew Pollack, the father of one of the young people killed at Parkland: "If Biden Wins, Policies That Led to Parkland Shooting Will Go Nationwide." We're going to have work to eradicate critical race theory.

Porchlight

How long did it take for Toobin et al to figure out they had a technical problem?

JMH, he never figured it out! The breakout session (where it happened) ended, and he disappeared briefly. He probably thought he was leaving the "other" Zoom (ahem) that he had going, but he was really leaving the breakout room.

When he finally got back to the larger Zoom, he didn't seem to realize that anything had happened.

That's why I think it took a week after it happened for him to get suspended. The only people who saw it were in the breakout session. Like two people.

So, they had to decide whether or not to hang him out to dry With So Much At Stake.

LOFL

Porchlight

Yeah, might as well read the Vice article. Even then they softpedal it a bit. But not too much.

Jack Lillywhite

JMH,

Pollack is right.

henry

AF1 on ground in Tucson.

MJW

I hope Trump has good medical advice for his voice. With all his campaign events, compounded by his recent illness, I worry that he'll lose his voice by the time of the scheduled debate. I think Biden's team would like nothing better than having Trump forced to cancel.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Why do women think exposing themselves buck naked in public is empowering?

Ask Jeffrey Toobin.

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

Dr.Tony Fauci says we don’t allow him to do television, and yet I saw him last night on @60Minutes, and he seems to get more airtime than anybody since the late, great, Bob Hope. All I ask of Tony is that he make better decisions. He said “no masks & let China in”. Also, Bad arm!

...P.S. Tony should stop wearing the Washington Nationals’ Mask for two reasons. Number one, it is not up to the high standards that he should be exposing. Number two, it keeps reminding me that Tony threw out perhaps the worst first pitch in the history of Baseball!

I agree with AB, peter. Especially the rapid test.

Anyone have a link to the Toobin article?

Jack Lillywhite

At /6:45/ is the biggest diss ever delivered by a sitting POTUS. LOL

MJW

Though I wouldn't put it past Biden to simply not report his kickback income, I hope Republican accountants are going over his tax returns with a fine-toothed comb to see if perhaps he reported it in a obfuscated form.

Screw it, hang him!

peter

CH's 5:52 is funny.

MJW

How do you "murder" someone with a narwhal tusk when the cops shot him dead?

The murder conviction was for killing someone else, previously. He was an inmate when he fought off the terrorist attack.

henry

Dave, the narwhal agrees.

Narciso

I think it was his previous offense.

henry

All murderers serve their time in pubs with handy narwhal tusks.

Dave (in MA)

Apparently the guy was "in prison" when he helped subdue the terrorist, and his murder conviction was when he was involved in a 2005 murder.

KevlarKid

So what's all this about Jennifer Toobin? 😏

Captain Hate

CH, the whole time... I’m thinking, “Ma’am, it’s a republic”

The libs always get that wrong; I've corrected someone smarter than that shrieking slug before...

jimmyk @ 5:42, yes to all of the above except for quercetin, but it turns out that organic tomatoes are loaded with quercetin, and I have some of those every day (since I grow them in my backyard.)

Thanks to all the well-wishers. I am waiting for my wife and the couple we had dinner with Saturday night to get back from their urgent care rapid tests.

Willowed that I just saw

I have hopes that Barr might surprise me but so far, he "give good speech", ala Trey Gowdy and thus far has been about as effective. If he acted like he sounds, then, since he says the country is in the balance, he would have found some action, any action, that equal justice under the law is returning...and that direct reports like Wray are shown the door as soon as their stripes are known. Some action; any action...

One thing that gives me hope for Barr is that Ol' Yeller, who reported directly to Ed Meese, likes him and understands the situation in which he'd operating. Of course he was conned by Razzle Dazzle when he still pretended to be a "budget hawk"...

When I was walking Teddy I was imagining how Sam Kinison would do a "Toobin Returns to Work" skit.
