The Campaign For DA

10.10.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts

"You buy me zee furniture?"

  • I have seen two things in presidential politics I never dreamed I'd see: (1) The Supreme Court decided, on a 5-4 vote no less, who would win, and (2) a political campaign explode in one single hour of one single day. And make no mistake about it, it's over. 
  • I said over one year ago, time and time again, that we were watching the implosion of the Republican Party on the national level because of Trump. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. "Implosion" no longer accurately describes it. 
  • It was amazing to see Republicans distance from Trump over the weekend including Wise County's own house rep Kay Granger who says Trump should quit
  • As for the tape, I didn't know a playa's "go to" move was to take a gal furniture shopping. (The most overlooked comedic aspect of his remarks.) 
  • Billy Bush's little "How about a little hug for the Donald" after he had just heard what Trump said makes him worse than Trump. NBC has suspended him from the Today Show, and he may never work on that network again. 
  • That belated and begrudging endorsement by Ted Cruz could not have come at a more inopportune time.  And, lord, doesn't he want this photo op back:
  •                                       
  • Down ticket elections will be interesting. For some reason I'm interested in a Houston district court judgeship held by Ryan Patrick who is the son of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.   It's basically a Democratic county to start with and now he has to deal with his dad, who can act crazy any way, being Trump's campaign chair in Texas.
  • And I wonder if the "aww shucks", Twitter loving Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett will someday have an opponent say, "And even Donald Trump had this man on his short list for the U.S. Supreme Court! Donald Trump!"
  • Defenses that don't work: (1) It's "locker room talk". It's not.  At least I haven't heard guys bragging about sexual assault.  And that's what kills him. He was referring to past acts. (2) "But what about Bill???!!!" (3) He was just a young man of 59.
  • Trump has now offended every single demographic of our great country with the exception of the older, uneducated white man.
  • This guy became an Internet celebrity after the debate last night: 
  • As did this combo:
  • I wonder if Trump's fundraising stop for tomorrow in Dallas is still on? And how comfortable do those attendees feel writing out that check now. 
  • Changing gears now.
  • The Tarrant County DA's office lost what had been at one time its DWI guru when prosecutor Richard Alpert announced he was resigning. He had been with the office for around 25 years and was making $178,458
  • The bang-to-hype ratio of Hurricane Matthew was way out of whack.
  • If you want to see a crazy millionaire, watch Showtime's documentary Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee. 
  • I predicted the Rangers wouldn't make the playoffs. I was three games off. Not bad once you put pen to paper. 
  • The Voice of The Longhorns, Craig Way, missed Saturday's game against OU because he spent it with his wife who died of cancer that evening.  I remember way back when he was on local DFW radio but I can't remember what station. KRLD?

Houston is Democratic, but has moderate voter turnout. The suburbs are white and vote every time. So Harris County may or may not go Democratic. They do when Obama is on the ticket, but have been hit or miss when he isn't. In fact, until Obama in 2008, there was not a single Democrat on a county-wide bench. And we have about 75 judges.

Lots to talk about in this election, but I'm with you. I kind of hope he loses, but from a substance side, he's a decent judge. He's certainly one of the better Democratic judges.

849 - There is no "but." Bill Clinton did worse things to women than Trump talked about. End of story.

That's not the important thing, though. Pretty much everyone agrees that Trump is a boor, a pig, and an overall terrible person. There is also large agreement that Hillary Clinton has, for a large part of her public life, gotten away with crimes that would land other people in prison. She's abused the public trust. That's a distasteful choice of candidates, but it's also a clear one.

Anonymous said...

Hillary uses the same dead words and old rhetoric every time she opens that evil, disgusting mouth of hers.

All her speeches and replies are all the same programmed answer.

As far as the GOP imploding - Trump has nothing to do with that. The GOP has been a bunch of liberal sell-outs for 20 years. This country would have been in the crapper way sooner than now if we hadn't had the Reagan years.

The Repubs and Demos abandoned their base decades ago.
Both parties want to elect a new people.
It's about time the base returned the favor.
Trump is just a symptom of the anti-globalist mood of the country.
As nationalists go, he's relatively tame.

The crazy thing is, the idea of putting America and Americans first is seen as an extremist viewpoint by our oligarchic "betters".

The recording of Clinton laughing about getting a sadistic child rapist off is pretty bad, but doesn't seem to hurt her support among Demos or feminists.

I think Trump will ride this out.

It's pretty neat how a cousin of the Bush's can record a private conversation and sit on the tape for 12 years, only to release it in support of a Demo candidate for president.

the implosion of the Republican Party on the national level because of Trump.

Your perspective as a liberal is laughable. Your either don't understand what you are seeing in the Republican Party or you're just a lying liberal. Seems like that is a pre-requisite these days for the Democrats.

I agree that we are watching an implosion of the Republican Party. And as a conservative myself, that is a good thing. But Trump is not causing the implosion. The lack of true conservatives in the party are causing it and Mr. Trump is just a sign that the true conservative voters in this country are not going to put up with the go along to get along with the liberals anymore.

By the way, Trump will win.

Anonymous said...



From the man that brings you RTG everyday, Trump bashing women based on some BS interview from a decade ago. Double standard much?

These candidates are a reflection of how Fk'd up this country really has become.
However, Republican implosion is equal on all fronts to the Democrat decline.

The difference is your party has removed all morals from this country, therefore without a moral compass you have nothing to compare your own contradictions.

I'm afraid that we are headed rapidly in the direction of becoming a one-world government, with no freedoms guaranteed us at all...not religious (nor any of the Bill of Rights), no constitutional freedoms at all. Obama agreed to the one-world plan of the UN. Those who support Hillary need to look beyond their rose-colored glasses at reality. The UN says by 2030:

mzchief said...

Let me assure you, I still believe Donald Trump is an egomaniacal psycho. However, it still gives me fits of giggles to know, after an exhaustive contest, REPUBLICANS elected Trump as their candidate, for POTUS.

Trump is a rich celebrity who has, for decades, been surrounded by women who willingly sold their dignity and spread their legs, because of his celebrity and wealth. Women who pretend that doesn't happen are lying to themselves. Just look at the women who throw themselves at horndog athletes, rock stars (ever heard of groupies?) and you realize what Trump said about the effect his celebrity and wealth has on his ability to bed random women, is true. A VAST majority of males, of lesser means, have said/thought, about random women, "I'd tap that if I could." or even speculated what it would be like to "tap that." Pretending males don't talk/act that way is, at best, naïve. For Heaven's sake, Barry posts a scantily clad female on The Blog, each day, to assure random hits, from people searching for those types of images. None of these facts excuse Trump's behaviour but for Republicans to act outraged over Trump's conversation with Billy Bush just further proves Republicans are self-deluded and have very fluid morals. For Democrats to pretend to be outraged over Trump's crass comments is an indication they have selective amnesia or a double standard when it comes to the behaviour of Hillary's closest adviser/husband.

Hillary believes she's above the law. Hillary lies like most people breathe. She's had 26 years to do all the things she says she'll do, if POTUS. WHY should ANYONE believe she'll actually do those things in the next four years?

To pretend Democrats are better than Republicans is no difference than claiming bullsh!t smells better than horsesh!t. They're both sh!t.

If you live in a state where your vote doesn't matter or you sincerely can't bring yourself to vote for either Trump or Hillary, VOTE for the Independent party. A VIABLE third party is the ONLY way to make Republicans and Democrats clean the sh!t out of their respective party.

IF it doesn't sicken you that Trump and Hillary are what Americans must chose between, for POTUS, you need to take a looong hard look at yourself and the standards you've set for yourself and the United States.

I don't care what you try to assure people, MzChief, if the Repubs had a conservative choice they still wouldn't have thrown them in the race. The GOP is counting on Trump to fail so they can get Hillary. The more the press, the media, the GOP, Hollywood, and all the others in this world screw with Trump, the more desperate they show they are. Trump the underdog may not win, but he will never be as vile as the Clitons along with their rapes and crimes.

When her first lie was uncovered, she lied again. When that lie was also uncovered, she lied again. When that lie was uncovered she lied again. When the FBI investigation confirmed that she lied, she lied again and said they agreed with her. Would you call that pattern of lying pathological?

Everyone does NOT agree Trump is a boor, pig, and terrible person.

Trump drew more primary voters than any Repub presidential candidate in history.

The people chose him over 16 other contenders.

He is beloved by his employees, kids, and EX-WIVES!

He wants to make needed changes in the governing of this country that establishment Repubs refused to do, given ample opportunity. Demography is destiny.

For you to parrot Demo talking points as if there were some factual basis for them is ludicrous.

Establishment Repubs are gonna bite the big one if they don't back the people's choice, starting with that p@ssy Ryan.

If you can't back the man fully, lay off the damning with faint praise bit and STFU.

Trump is not running for President. The man is not a businessman. He's a salesman. He actually owns very little. He lost Billions of dollars in the 90"s and 20 separate banks came together to rescue their stupid loan/investment. They agreed to not undo his loans if they could put him on salary if he continued to "PR" his name to sell the product. Hence many of the buildings with his name he does not own, he is paid to have his name on the building and SALE his name. If you think he's a good businessman I've got some real estate in AK i'd like to sell you.
Trump is running for President to sell his next product. He's going to make Fox news look liberal. Notice how he doubled down on his conservative shtick last night. He, Beirbardt and Ailes are going to start the TRUMP Network... He wants to loose.... He's a salesman!!! He's selling his sole to start a new capital project and you people are his pawns.
MARK MY WORDS!!! On his morality....I'm sorry the man had two very public affairs on his wives....one with Marla and the next with Melania. He will dump her as he told Ivanka he's just not sexually attracted to women once they have children and are over 35.
He also is either an adult ADHD or a cocaine attack....the man can't focus for 10 minutes. But hey, whatever the Religious Right wants to honor as their next best thing as long as he "claims" to be against abortion, you guys slobber all over it!

The problem I have with your stance is it smacks too much of the idol worship that happened with Obama. I prefer to understand that politicians are flawed human beings, and as such do not automatically deserve adulation they haven't earned. They also must be watched, and their power contained, so that the damage they do can be limited. We've seen with Obama (and Hillary Clinton) what happens when a politician feels he (or she) has no restrictions.

I think your opinion is juvenile and ignorant. You tried to act belligerent, complete with almost-bad language, (my what a grown up boy you are!) and all it did was confirm to everyone that my opinion of you is accurate. Congratulations.

You can pretend you can still stop or alter the course of the NWO but the real revolution you minions of planet 'Merica think you're starting with Trump has been going on for centuries - just a few loose ends named Trump and Kim to tidy up. If we all go along peacefully with their end game we stand a chance of retaining our rights and free will as a top tier sovereign nation and driver of global policy - nationalist resistance and saber rattling will only result in more govt control and senseless wars to restore 'order' which just weakens our global standing in the end and doesn't change the outcome.

Why allow fear of American global weakness, Islamic terrorism, drugs, borders, race wars, etc to provide support for fueling the rapidly growing domestic military and police state tornado that will ultimately be the force to disarm those same policy supporters?

Act like a grown up and daddy might let us keep our BB guns in our rooms - one kid starts pointing it around at dad or the neighbors and he'll have no choice but to take them away from us all.

5:42 So you are really anti-establishment and really angry at Paul Ryan for allowing candidates running for Congress to do what they need to do after the Trump video was released. Trump reacted as Trump does to the Republicans who called for him to quit (including our Kay Granger) something to the effect they will have hell to pay! So the Trump cult that they are were texting Trump's spoke person they are not voting down ballot! Now I don't know how Trump is going to MAGA without the GOP vote in the Congress, unless he declares himself Dictator Trump! No walls, no trade deals, no health care changes, no bombing the shit out of ISIS! So all the Trump cult members are going to do by not voting down ballot is to pour gasoline on the GOP party, strike a match and burn it down to the ground. Trump has the GOP by the balls, and he is not supporting the candidates down ballot, he threw his V.P. under the bus during the debate. Trump isn't going to win and the devil Hillary could have the Senate and the House, a majority thanks to Trump and his cult! Think about that and get ready for what comes next. We had a chance to win the White House after 8 years of Obama but here came Trump! So who is going to bit the big one, you are and my grandchildren are. Think about it when you go vote!

"The GOP needs to realize they are the reason Trump is so popular" is not completely true. The media gave Trump more coverage than the other more qualified candidates and he was already a TV celebrity. Trump's appeal to angry working class white males with his national populist message won in open primary states as Democrats and first time primary voters gave him the nomination. Trump has no ideology or any intentions of following the GOP platform.

The GOP had a last chance to remove Trump at the national convention but did not want to split the party, which happened yesterday when Trump declared war on the Party! Mike Pence and Ted Cruz wanted to change the rules to allow delegates to vote their conscious but the GOP through the convention chair would not allow the vote on the floor!

Trump is not going to be a team player with anyone!
