The Campaign For DA

6.09.2017

Random Friday Morning Thoughts




  • One of the most fascinating thing about the Comey hearings is how locked in America was to the broadcast/replays of it. If I'm Trump, that would worry me. There may be only 10% of the country who can explain what the issue with Michael Flynn is, but almost everyone now thinks "something is going on with Trump." 
  • Trump strong arming Comey in the oval office is not Obstruction of Justice. But Trump flew dangerously close to the sun. 
  • Start looking at local news broadcasts. You'll see a segment on "Orange is the New Black" which is on a massive ad campaign right now. Yep, paid ads disguised as news. 
  • Let's check in on Trump's intelligence briefing this morning: 
  • Dallas has been in a legal fight with the Exxxotica porn convention for over two years -- ever since Dallas refused to let them rent the convention center. Exxxotica sued and lost and is now appealing to the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans. Get this tidbit: Dallas hired outside lawyers to fight the lawsuit and you know how much they've charged so far? $675,000.  That's more obscene than anything at Exxxotica.
  • I've been following but haven't written about the spouse of a female Houston deputy (who looks like he might want to consider lap band surgery) who put a choke hold on a guy for urinating in public. He got on top of him as cops were headed that way. His off-duty deputy wife helped. The guy died. Both were indicted for murder yesterday.  I don't understand that. The guy's an idiot, acted recklessly, and probably needs to be charged with manslaughter but the murder charge is a reach. (Even moreso for the deputy.)
  • Urinating in public is a Class C misdemeanor -- punishable by fine only. This guy received the immediate death penalty.  (Any chance bubba there watches UFC?)  Oh, there is a video of the incident. 
  • When I saw this headline my first thought was: The Jonas Brothers still live together?
  • One funny bit going is that one of The Ticket employees has moved in next to the house where Lee Harvey Oswald posed for the now famous picture holding a rifle. That employee is now doing bits. He calls this creation "Flea Harvey Oswald."
  • Someone was able to keep Trump away from his phone all day yesterday.  That person could end up being the most important person in his Administration by the time it is all said and done.

Urination is a "natural act". If thousands of moms can lose their minds and go all vigilante on their rights to perform the natural act of openly feeding a baby at a table across from me at a restaurant, I'd think that same tribe would fight for the rights of us all to just pee wherever. And urination is something we ALL have to do. Otherwise, if those two would have walked up to someone smoking a joint and strangled him or her to death, or pummeled a shoplifter to death as she tried to leave a store with a can of beans, that would certainly be murder. Same here. Killing someone for peeing is murder.

So when Hillary literally flew into the sun and Comey shielded her, you didn't seem interested in mentioning on it the blog. You never even mentioned that Comey named every single element of a Federal crime and had concrete facts to satisfy those elements. Double standard much. Bill Clinton meeting with Lynch on the plane was as shady as it gets, but it didn't seem to bother you. Why?

SpanishWarDonkey said...

Cop and husband are literally the worst kind of people. I imagine you're spot on with the UFC comment.

Comey was impressive. If people could put their political opinions aside for a moment, they could appreciate that he only answered questions with certainty that he was sure of. If he wasn't sure, he said as much. There wasn't anything he said that could possibly be misconstrued by a reasonable person. If both sides have found sound bites to latch onto and point at, you know he told the truth.

The deputy's husband instigated the fight and choked the man to death. The deputy didn't attempt to deescalate the fight as required and instead assisted in the killing. The deputy's daughter attempted to stop people recording the killing and told them they would be arrested for doing so.

Murder and obstruction of justice by trying to prevent the preservation of evidence of a crime in progress under the Texas obstruction statute. Imagine if I forced a cop to turn off his dash cam how many crimes do you think they'd charge me with?

So it was wrong for Trump to ask for honest loyalty? Comey was unsure of how to respond to Trump that his request could be considered inappropriate?

Interesting thing about Comey's "explosive" testimony yesterday -- the needle hasn't moved at all, except for exposing the media a bit more.

- Comey thinks Trump is a liar, which a large part of the populace also believe, and Comey's opinion is a bit biased as a result of his being fired and all.

- The New York Times and CNN had to roll back stories that were false; i.e., they are also liars.

- Comey leaked info he thought should be public, but wouldn't announce the fact that Trump himself was not under investigation.

- Trump's "obstruction" amounted to little more than a novice politician (the "outsider" so many people say they want) who didn't know the proper protocol when dealing with the justice department.

- The Trump "collusion" conspiracy so near and dear to Democrat hearts has fallen apart. Flynn was not central to the FBI investigation; and Trump told Comey to nail whoever in his operation may have been guilty of such a thing.

So the Dallas thing is just normal craziness and ineptness for them right? I believe they let the Exxotica people have one event there. The problem started when they wouldn't let them re-book for the following year. I bet if I didn't want them back and thought it would be a problem I would have pursued another convention. Even if you had to let them use the place for free it would have been worth it to book them. Then you aren't denying these porn folks---you just don't have availability. But they made it a big deal and will probably spend a million dollars trying to defend their decision.

Give us the transcript of what Bill and Lynch talked about, then we might have something to get interested in. Comey took notes because he felt Trump would lie about it later - speaks volumes on its own. You traitors keep trying to protect your demagogue and egos and dig the hole deeper.

You folks better tap the brakes. Comey is just one witness testifying before congress. The real meat grinder is Muller. Comey even acknowledged he was the right guy for job. You can sit and debate obstruction over Comey testimony, but it's Muller that carries the big stick. Read about the guy. He is honest, tenacious, thorough and INDEPENDENT! And he has no timeline on the investigation. If I were Trump & his lawyer, I would be scared to death.

Anyone with a brain knew exactly what Trump was trying to do with Comey, which was to strong arm him. It's not obstruction or impeachable but it was highly inappropriate and speaks to his character. He is running the White House like La Cosa Nostra, it might be outsider, but not the kind of outsider we need!

I voted for him because I had no other choice but now is time for him to step aside.

I'm happy that the cop and her husband got indicted for murder. The guy didn't deserve to die for peeing in public and the husband should have just let the cops take care of it.

I did not vote for President Trump because I don't think he's qualified to be President, though it pained me on many fronts to vote for Clinton, but I have to give the guy credit for being exactly who he said he was going to be if elected, and exactly who we all should have expected if we elected him. Folks, it's not him....it's US. WE are the ones who did this; and blah blah yeah yeah electoral college and all that. Those were the rules going in and everybody knew it and game planned accordingly. He may be unqualified to be president, but man there are tens of millions of voters who are unqualified to vote, that's for sure.

LOL at Wordkyle

Flynn took money from Russians, despite being told he couldn't, and Trump knew about it before nominating him;
Kuchner lied about Russian contacts and tried to open a back door;
Manafort had to resign because of his ongoing contacts;
Sessions had undisclosed contacts with Russians, and more have been discovered, and he lied on federal forms by not disclosing them;
We know the Russians attempted to influence the election, and if we don't ask 'why' we're idiots;
Trump has Russian investors;
Russia has sought relief from Obama-administration sanctions related to Syria and Ukraine;
Trump cleared the room before trying to influence Comey--not the act of a naive newcomer, but the act of someone who didn't want witnesses to his impropriety...
etc.


Nope. Nothing to see here. Trump's totally innocent.

$675,000 would have bought a lot of lap dances on Harry Hines. By our calculations, that would be approximately 33,750 individual dances (not the Champagne Room type dance though). Imagine the boost to the average blue collar stripping industry. Totally wasted on the white collar legal community.

Comey doesn't have to think Trump is a liar. Spending 5 minutes in his Twitter account proves that. Still waiting on those "tapes", Mr. President. Oh, that's right, you thought you could sound tough on Twitter and not get called on it; well Comey says you don't have the nuts, Don.

You already thought any media not FoxNews were lies anyway, what's the point of that comment?

Private citizens can't leak anything. They can just say it. A different instance would be when our President tells foreign (and often opposed dignitaries) of our allies' protocols for various situations.

It wasn't textbook obstruction, and this is where Comey messed up. Had he followed through and dropped the Flynn thing, then it would've been enough for charges later on, I think. And you don't get to use the "he's an amateur line" after you screamed all of 2008 that Obama had no experience.

Keep saying it's over. This was one testimony. The truth will come out. Don't forget there were dozens of questions asked yesterday that Comey couldn't answer in a public forum. They could very well incriminate the president or a number of other people. We aren't privy to 90% of the stuff talked about in DC, so let's not act like a 2.5 hour testimony is all the information there is to hear.

Anonymous said...

Comey and Clinton belong together as leakers of what should of been secure information. Some of you wanted an email leaker who let Americans get murdered and others are believing a leaker who confessed his wrong. I was never more scared of an election than the last. How could America face itself if Hilary was voted into office. Trump may not have been the best candidate but he was the best available. I have been tired of America tucking it's tail to the rest of the world. When you sail a ship sometimes you sail with the wind and sometimes you sail against the wind. But dang it let Trump sail, not float along with the current like Hilary would have done.

Flynn definitely should go to prison just for his Turkish shenanigans alone, before they even investigate his Russian connections. Took Turkish money as a consultant & didn't report it. He then told the Obama folks to back off a Kurdish partnership fighting ISIS and let the Trumpers handle it after swearing-in day. He then proceeded to quash it after becoming Mr. National Security, just what the Turks wanted. I think you call working against the best interest of your home nation TREASON. Yes, generals can commit treason. Personal money versus fighting ISIS. Shouldn't be a contest.

Isn't it strange that most thinking Americans today are not arguing whether or not Trump is a Liar. The argument is regarding just how big a liar he really is. Strange times.

Saw a lady on the news this morning who said she worked for one president for seven years, then worked on other campaigns, ad in all her years she met with a single Russian. And here we have dozens of contacts by Trump staffers, family members, and if you count his investors (he can't get conventional loans after all his bankruptcies), even himself.

But yeah, it's all totally normal. Meeting with the head Russian spy in the US and then not disclosing it and other contacts--totes NBD wordy, totes.

Sorry 9:21, but you are way wrong. The loyalty is to the office and the Constitution. The oath that is taken reflects that very fact. No one in American government pledges their loyalty and fidelity to an individual person , even to the President. I can recall one person from 1934 to 1945 that changed his civil servants and armed forces pledge from one of faithful service to their nation to loyalty without question to him personally. It had disastrous results. Do I have to tell you who that leader was?

1123 - Okay, thanks for your opinions. Comey, who might have a bit more knowledge of the situation, said Trump told him that if an FBI investigation found that anyone in the Trump campaign did something wrong (regarding the Russians) it would be a good thing to find that out. That's a very subtle way to support collusion, I guess, telling the FBI chief to investigate and find collusion. Too subtle for me to understand. How about you?

It's good to know that we have off-duty deputies and their spouses always looking out for public urinators.

I like the guy in the video (and who was he?) with a vest and leather gloves on threatening the person filming with jail.

That's all kinds of disturbing.

I don't know enough about it to weigh the murder charge, despite the video. I will say that the new DA down here is much more to the left than our recent DAs, and might be partisan and ideological to a fault. I haven't heard much good about her from the people who work in that world.

1249 - Trump's lying is only significant in that it's a topic of conversation. Obama lied -- "keep your doctor" and all that, check out PolitiFact's extensive "Pants on Fire" compilation of Obama's lies -- yet that fact was never part of the national conversation. The media, which has extensively covered Trump in this department, let Obama slide.
