The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • The Washington Post revealed that the special counsel Robert Mueller is now investigating Trump personally as to whether he obstructed justice. There had been rumors that Trump was thinking of firing him. He can't do it now without a political firestorm. 
  • This is really interesting: The Post also obtained a copy late yesterday of the Republican "talking points" to deal with the new controversy. The two page document makes some very good points. Any Republican who goes on any radio or TV show to defend Trump will repeat what is contained in the document. I'm not saying it's wrong. Democrats have talking point documents as well.
  • Trump doesn't use Talking Points (although he does admit he's under investigation): 
    "Nice"? Don't say "nice"! Say "sad".
  • The Freshmen in the House had friends over to spend the night. That plus the existing Family Unit meant it was me and six females. 
  • Of those involved in the alleged hazing at Tarleton, I've learned that four are from Wise County.
  • Fox News quietly dropped their "Fair and Balanced" slogan last year. 
  • The Southern Baptist Convention refused to adopt a resolution condemning white supremacy and the alt-right on Tuesday. They decided it would be a good idea to do so yesterday. 
  • This has not aged well:
  • Paul's communication director says, "The tweet . . . was part of live tweeting of someone else’s speech and it was done by a staffer. Those are not Senator Paul’s words.” If true, the communications director needs to work on how his communications are directed.
  • Anyone else think it was weird that Rep. Joe Barton, who was on the field during the baseball shooting yesterday, decided to go back to the capitol (not home, not to his office) in his full baseball shirt and cap to get in front of the cameras?
  • Twitter in a nutshell: 
  • Every question you had about these type of signs answered
  • According to the latest Texas Tribune poll, Texans love Trump by staggering numbers.

If you know Joe Barton, and I do, you know that's not weird at all.

If you read the history behind the Second Amendment (including pre-Revolutionary War Colony's Constitutions), that is the MAIN reason for their existence. It's an "in your face" to the government to say that "if you get like England", you may get treated like England. However, individual acts of lawlessness are deplorable, of course.

FOX News was never "Fair & Balanced". It was false advertising.

"...Texans love Trump by staggering numbers." Shouldn't that be Texas Republicans?

Glad I was not the only one seeing Joe Barton's dog and pony show. I thought why does he not at least remove the cap?????

"However, individual acts of lawlessness are deplorable, of course."

And you know the difference between lawlessness and revolution?

The winner.

That's it. One man's lawlessness is another man's legitimate armed resistance.

On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the liberal host opened with a unifying statement about the Alexandria, Va., shooting that left four people wounded, including lawmaker Steve Scalise, who is reportedly in critical condition. Colbert started by saying:



Being a liberal allows us to wake up everyday and have an opinion based on how we are feeling at the moment with our flimsy personalities or lack thereof. We incite hate and violence against anyone with views opposite ours at that moment, so it is no wonder our behavior has led to another liberal nutcase blowing a gasket and shooting politicians that are against our beliefs.

"Twitter in a nutshell"

I don't know that much about Twitter but it's definitely Liberals in a nutshell. The DUMP TRUMP person is arguing the facts with the hospital. Now that is typical!!

No suprise that the Rage algorithm holds that morality is subjective.

Twitter is liberals in a nutshell??? I don't understand. I thought Trump was the king of Twitter.

Does anyone know how the Texas Tribune poll compares with past Presidents?

According to the poll, 32% of Texas Republicans do not think Trump has the presidential temperament. 34% -- of, specifically, Texas Republicans -- do not think he is honest and trustworthy. That to me does not sound like Texans love Trump, but I do not know how it compares to previous administrations.

At what point does being known for posting pictures of females in bikinis that aren't much older or even the same age as females in or that visit the house get a little weird? Perhaps, just perhaps, it's time for a new theme to pic of the day?

1:41 - Amen. Have always thought the "RTG" was a bit perverted.

Anonymous said...

@ 1:41 and 2:26. So you want BG to post photos of 50 somethings in Bikini's? Are you nuts?

Anonymous said...

1:41/2:26 - Now that's just crazy talk. Next thing you know, someone will be suggesting that cat and dogs live together, that men stop scratching in public, and that restaurants cut serving portions. Let's not go off the edge now, folks. Let well enough alone.

I guess in Wise County if you've had too much to drink and you need to get back behind the wheel it probably doesn't matter if he had bikini girl or sheep photos for that matter. If his raging liberal politics don't make you think twice....why would a bikini girl matter?

Anonymous said...

After today's RTG has a couple of children then she will put on the typical 40 pounds and still look pretty good.

I always thought that the ones that come here all the time worrying and complaining about the bikini girls must be the real perverts.
