The Campaign For DA

10.17.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • "Thousands of DWI cases potentially at risk as credibility of DPS lab expert questioned" - Dallas Morning News. The guy has testified in Wise County before. (And there seems to be, or at least should be, more to the story than one incident of "conflicting" testimony. The story wasn't all that clear.)
  • The Messenger's headline seemed a little matter of fact for the case just being at the indictment stage. 
  • I'll refer to Mark Davis show on 660 AM  from time to time but I'm  worried about his radio station. Their website for the last week looks like someone forgot to pay the bill. (The home page redirects you to a page with "suspended" in the URL.)
  • Steve Eagar, the mild mannered Fox 4 anchor, can be a grumpy old man on Twitter. He fired off a tweet on Friday that sounded a little sensational. I called him out on it -- which is dumb on my part because twitter wars are dumb. He responded.


  • I still question that a detective just happening to drive up on a gunfight. (Dallas PD will later vaguely report that "The officer was in plainclothes driving an unmarked police vehicle at the time of the shooting.") But the officer wasn't shot in the foot. #LivingTheReclinerLife #SomewhatInaccurate
  • I'll give Eagar credit -- he's an entertaining follow. Most of the reporters on the station will tweet out something like: "Taco Shells! Flour or corn!? Fav for flour or retweet for corn!" 
  • In between Trump calling the election "rigged", he was able to solve a crime in record time over the weekend. 
  • And he got a little weird this morning and is still going strong:
  • Sports opinions: (1) I bet the Cowboys will run Elliott into the ground under his rookie contract and then let him go to free agency. It's the new NFL way. (2) I'm not sure UT's Shane Buechele can throw the deep ball. (3) They shouldn't allow blitzing in pee wee football. (4) Alabama will throttle unbeaten aTm this Saturday. (5) How much did Microsoft spend on the Surface campaign which is everywhere during an NFL game? And does anyone own a Surface? (6) Heard in the house during Packers' game: "Look, there's Jo Jo's brother-in-law." (7) I don't want to see Romo giving Prescott advice on the sidelines. (8) The Big 12 makes an expansion decision today, and know one knows what the crazy school presidents will decide. I'm not sure they do right now as they eat breakfast.
  • Risky Business was on the other night. I have never thought for a second that Rebecca De Mornay was attractive. 
  • Man, there are a lot of troopers: "According to the DPS, troopers will either ride on school buses or follow them as they make their rounds during National School Bus Safety Week, Oct. 17 through 21 . . . ."

Why are you so passionately against the employment of people that are unfortunately necessary to increase dramatically the chance that you and your family won't be horribly slaughtered on the highways by idiots? You do understand Texas is large geographically, right? Lots of open roads. More than most states. And you do understand what happens when all the "good folks" wake up one morning and find out that there are no longer any rules or laws they need to adhere to, right? No chance of getting caught. No chance of arrest no matter how they drive or what they do. Which came first, the troopers or the need for troopers?

I have had a Surface Pro 4 since last year when the first came out. I got the dock for it and use it as my desktop with three monitors plus take it on the road as my laptop when I travel. I don't use it as a tablet much but it would be good for watching videos or surfing the web.

I like it a lot and would recommend it highly.

Sportzz notes:
after watching the Cowboys/Packers yesterday, I wonder if they heard this before the game started "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Lambeau Field. Please stand and remove your cheese for the playing of our national anthem."
I liked what Fake Jerry said this morning on the Musers: "Rodgers' best throw yesterday was during that insurance commercial, when he tossed that golf club through the winder."
And the big question coming out of the bye week won't be whether Romo has become redundant. It's whether Dez has become redundant

I gotta agree with the "She's not super gorgeous, but she has a little je ne sais quois..." statement. With one caveat - it's more than just a little. She's got beaucoup je ne sais quois, non?
Besides, it's what every white boy off the lake wants!

949 - I have to disagree with you. Given what the documentation has already shown, expecting incredibly blatant government corruption in the process is realistic. The abuse of power in the Obama administration is something Nixon could only have dreamed of.

Anonymous said...

Yes it still does. There is no fine line between "keeping a candidate out of trouble" and rigging an election. One happens every election to every candidate to some degree and one is rare if not impossible to happen. https://extranewsfeed.com/the-election-is-not-rigged-23917d9b0534#.jfzc0c
The fact is one candidate IS in deep trouble this time so he has no choice but pull out every nonsensical stop he can to trick the American people into believing that if he loses it's not because of things he said or did but rather the system is rigged. Sounds like anarchy to me. Trump set out to prove any old blow hard with a little $ can win - he's finding out the hard way that the system is designed to filter out the unwanted and unworthy, but not necessarily the rich and famous, which is the line Trump is failing at riding right now.

Steve Eager may have been over-dramatic on Twitter, but I bet he has a firm grasp on the difference between "know" and "no".

The fact that we were all denied a Trump v. Biden election shows that there really is no justice in the world.

I looked at the Surface when I was looking for a new machine for personal use a few years ago. I wanted something beefier and cheaper than an iPad, but not a full blown notebook. The Surface was perfect, but not at 3 times or more of the cost of a Chromebook for all of the features I would have liked.

1140 - You seem to disregard the fact that the administration apparently blocked a damning indictment of the Democrat presidential candidate, one which very well could have resulted in her prosecution for crimes against the government. Yeah, I consider that pretty unprecedented.

Which makes suspicion of skullduggery in the election process itself seem less farfetched.

Ernest T said...

With the computerized voting that you have nowadays, it wouldn't be that hard to hack in and rig an election. Also, you don't have to necessarily change the votes to rig an election.

All that you need today is to have the media's assistance is changing the votes. It is very simple. The media fully supports one party and is doing everything that they can possibly do to make sure that one party gets elected.

Just look at all of the coverage regarding Trump's comments. He never said that he did it. He simply said that he could have done it because he was famous.

All of the recent accusations happened many many years ago. Why didn't these people come forward then instead of now? Donald Trump has been famous for many years and has been running for office now for about 2 years. They had plenty of time to come forward instead of waiting until 1 month before the election.

We have a person running for President who helped cover up when her husband actually did what Trump was just speaking out about. She attacked all of the accusers. Now, she wants everyone to believe that she is all for women's rights.

You think Twitter wars are dumb? That's because Steve Eagar schooled you on how it's done, Green! You should stick to the writing of a blog instead of commenting on what someone else has written!

When the media is acting as a de facto propaganda machine for one party, ensuring the outcome by controlling the narrative, silencing dissent and shaming then you don't have to rig the machines, you already have a brainwashed majority. All the other dirty tricks with the FBI and DOJ are just part of the elitist's will to show the people that they know what's best for us!

This election is NOT about voting for Trump, it is about the silent and shunned majority fighting back. Trump could rape Hillary on the debate stage and my vote wouldn't change. This election is about the power to contol our future and open borders and anti American trade policies doesn't benefit my children or grandchildren or America.

I'm a college graduate with a professional job and what I'm seeing is a bleak future in the job market for middle class jobs like mine...we won't be talking about the loss of shovel ready or manufacturing jobs in 10-20 year's, it will be where did the professional middle class go! The leftist ideas that Hillary supports doesn't look to bring America up, but to bring it down to benefit global interests. I believe a strong America means a better, safer world, and a brighter future. Also, by gutting the middle class you control all future elections. I'm going to fight, vote for Trump and ensure my family and friends are entrenched in a political philosophy that will obstruct at all costs any further attempts to move this country in a socialist direction! And if that means using the militant tactics of the left to achieve those goals, so be it.

The Obama administration interfered with the investigation of Hillary Clinton so that she could be voted into office, where the potential damage she can do is unlimited.

A conspiracy theory that the AG, FBI, Obama can somehow rig the election for Hillary when it is conducted at the local level. How can they get about 70 Republicans and Democrats to "rig it" at the polling precincts! Too many safeguards and too many people! Trust the election process, it works!

Was there something in my statements that was unclear? Or a statement from Trump which you claim I am "parroting?"

Anonymous said...

Massive voter fraud is not happening! Trump is asking followers to monitor polling precincts. Only appointed poll watchers can be within the 100 feet of the polling precinct unless, voters, election workers, county election officials or SEC of State inspectors. A presiding judge has the authority of a District Judge. Trump can't send anyone unless they are appointed a poll watcher. Our elections have so many safe guards, bi-partisan election workers and election laws, it would take a Hollywood writer to come up with a conspiracy plan to rig a national election!

FBI director speaks to Russia hacking into voter registration data bases to disrupt the presidential election. What would happen if on election day Russian hackers deleted the data base? We have no systemic voter fraud. A few dead people voting, some illegals voting or early voting harvesting is not a systemic problem or a nationally rigged election. Violence in polling precincts is more of a potential problem that undermines our democratic process. Our enemies must stay out of our election process.

Anonymous said...

When you go vote, don't tell your wife or husband how to vote in the polling precinct. Have that discussion at home. If you take Grandma to vote and she doesn't know how to use the electronic voting machine, an election worker or you can help her after you've taken an oath that you will not tell her how to vote. If you have a list of candidates you are going to vote for, take it with you when you leave the polling precinct and don't share it in the polling precinct. Leave your Trump or Hillary cap or T shirt at home and don't talk politics in the polling precinct. If you observe any of the above going on, call the Election Administrator or the Secretary of State (complaint info posted in polling precinct. Thank your election workers for their service.

wordkyle, parroting is agreeing with Trump the election is rigged. No matter how corrupt the administration is, elections are run by locals, election workers are your neighbors! We do not have a systemic election fraud problem! Local elections have and can be stolen by fraud, but at a national level, you won't say how because safe guards are in place. Check out the Ohio Republican Secretary of State comments and stop being brainwashed!

wordkyle, anyone knows what parroting means and my comments are to reassure voters the presidential election is bi-partisan and fair. Anyone can accept Trump's whining about it not being fair acting like someone whining about the referees when they are losing, but to do so undermines our democratic process. Don't go there because you know it is politics, not the truth!

wordkyle said...

1254 - Again, you confused me. Since you didn't use the word correctly I assumed you didn't know what it meant.

You may very well be correct about the election process. Your faith in it is commendable, but not necessarily factual. Millions of Americans had the same faith in the FBI's investigative process, yet we find out from released documents that in the case of Hillary Clinton it was undermined, tampered with, and ultimately succumbed to politics. Concern that Obama administration interference will again play a role in this election is a legitimate point of view.

Having a similar opinion is not parroting.

wordkyle, Trump has no facts the process is rigged; just talking about dead people voting and illegals voting. Does it happen? Yes, but not on a national level. Suggesting his followers protect the process since it is rigged without giving them the tools, may create trouble on election day! I'm aware of local elections that have been stolen but that was before electronic voting. Again, we need confidence in the election process. And just when did the Obama administration play a role in a national election? I'm not a Democrat!

wordkyle said...

505 - Okay, you believe the elective process is immaculate, that's fine. As I said before, your faith is commendable. I believe the process is corruptible, especially by those who have the power and the will to do it. (Aided and abetted by their belief in their own untouchability.) That's not a point of view I "parroted."

You'll disagree with the source and with the message, but here's a video of Democrat operatives explaining exactly how they would rig the election and commit voter fraud on a massive scale. They get away with such things because they know they are immune from prosecution if they get caught. The Democrat administration will protect them.

Anonymous said...

Wordkyle, I saw the video this morning and I've read Judicial Watch articles on election abuse; but don't do a Trump on me by saying I believe the election process is perfect! Not after I've stated problems, some I've observed. Again, you do not have facts, just a video, of how to "rig" a national election. Busing paid voters across state lines to cheat Trump from winning this election is not a systemic problem, just limited voter fraud. If Democrats have mastered wide spread voter fraud, why did they lose the Senate and the House? Think about it. I expected a better argument for your case.

Anonymous said...

One last comment, on the tape they said they had been busing across state lines for 50 years! What did the Republican AG do about it? Didn't stop it, did they? If it was such a systemic threat, believe me (Trump talk) they would have thrown them in jail and threw away the keys! Go to leave on vacation. Think I won this debate!

wordkyle said...

Well, you argued that "we need confidence in the election process" and I provided you with video evidence of why many people lack your confidence. That was a Democrat operative speaking directly on how his party corrupts elections.

Add that to the corruption shown by the Obama administration's State Department, DOJ, FBI, IRS and other federal agencies as they pursue the Democrat agenda, and I'd say faith in government fairness is a foolish position for millions of Americans.

Congratulations on your "win."
