The Campaign For DA

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Breaking: Within the hour, Trump once again showed he is mentally unstable by insulting the married co-hosts of a daytime morning talk show.  Yes, this comes from the President of the United States of America. This is not normal. This is stuff that a mean, spoiled 14 year old with no filter would say: 

  • If you want to know what "He just set the Internet on fire" means, go to any social media site right now.  (And it's good to see Melania's anti cyber-bullying initiative is going very well.)
  • Edit: Even Fox News called the comments "shocking":
  • Every website of every Texas appellate court has been down for over 24 hours. The official word is a "power outage." It should be noted there was an epidemic of world wide hacking incidents this week via ransomware. Hmmmm. 
  • A young couple decides to shoot a youtube video in hopes of it going viral. The plan: Have her fire a gun at him while he is holding a heavy book which will stop the bullet. The result: The bullet goes through the book and he dies. The gal, 19 and pregnant, tweeted this before the incident: 
  • This was floating around yesterday: Chicago Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts and Sen. Ted Cruz finally posed for a picture together. That's freaky. 
  • Stay with me here. I guy in Texas gets thrown in the Brownsville PD jail. A detention officer then says he was assaulted in the jail by the guy. Guy gets charged with Assault on a Public Servant.  Guy says he didn't do it but agrees to plead guilty to get probation. The guy then screws up the probation by not going to drug rehab and is sentenced to prison. Four years into his sentence it is discovered that the "incident" was videotaped by police, the video was not turned over when the case was pending, and the video shows the guy did not commit any assault. The police had lied and suppressed evidence.  He is released. He then actually gets Texas' highest criminal court to declare him "actually innocent" -- something which is next to impossible to do. He then files a civil rights lawsuit against Brownsville and wins $2.3 million. This week, the ridiculous Fifth Circuit overturned the verdict. Why? Since the guy originally pled guilty that kills his claim. If you are confused, welcome to the club. 
  •  Who was the judge who authored the opinion? The guy below who is semi-retired. Before being appointed as judge, he was in private practice for almost thirty years working on "estates, trusts, and taxation." Yes, this is the guy who can make decisions that concern the complicated and often corrupt world that is the criminal justice system.
  • Newspaper lede: "Waller County district Judge Albert McCraig on Wednesday dismissed a perjury charge filed against Trooper Brian Encinia in connection with the death of Sandra Bland." Actually, the prosecutor asked the charges be dismissed. I don't know why. 
  • Yesterday it was announced that there were no drugs or alcohol at the party or in the system of Jordan Edwards -- the teenager who was murdered by a Balch Springs officer as the kid was a passenger in a car that was driving away. Question: What difference does it make? 
  • Shoutout to the WBAP crew for having the Star-Telegram's Bud Kennedy on this morning and then, once he was off the phone, joking that the paper only had one reader. Specifically, it was Brian Estridge.
  • And Another (Michigan). It might just be a court update. 
  • This is amazing. The White House gives a daily list of the news they think you should read. Thank you, comrade.
  • I haven't read the story, but what must your musical accomplishments be in order to officially be referred to as a "rapper"?:

Reminder: Wordkyle is a birther and a climate science denier, who thinks the problem is that the media reports the stupid things Trump does, not that Trump does stupid things.

By your comments in regard to the Brownsville case, I am seriously in doubt that you even went to law school.

The difference between Trump white house and Obama whitehouse is that Trump's whitehouse puts out a list of stories it deems worthy while Obama told the media which lies to report and they did (i.e. Benghazi was over a video tape, etc. etc...).

"...and often corrupt world that is the criminal justice system."

Funny how you boldly present yourself as part of this same corrupt system. Perhaps you're part of the problem?

The joke has gone on long enough. Somebody needs to force The President of The United States to see a psychiatrist and take a competency test. He's not mentally fit to hold office.

Poor FAKE NEWS OUTLET MSNBC. It's beneath them to respond to President Trumps tweet this morning but, is not beneath them to attack him on a daily basis.

Moronic youtube shooting:
If these people had any kind of education, he would have been holding up the Oxford English Dictionary or War and Peace, at least. But the fact they did this stunt is proof of how ignorant they are. She was about one foot away and fired a .50cal. But they're famous now, that was the point, right?
And she's pregnant with their second child, so some of that stupid is being passed down.
You would hope the cops, uh...throw the book at her, and I just read that she's charged with manslaughter and reckless discharge of a weapon.
Somebody might think "Ooh, TF, how can you be so heartless? She's a grieving pregnant mother." Well, because she aimed a gun at her BF and pulled the trigger. On purpose. As a stunt. At his request

Unofficially, a rapper is somebody who doesn't sing mostly unintelligible lyrics to bad music. Apparently, a murder rap on your resume also helps.

Note to the editors and writers of that other headline in the FWS-T: Weatherford isn't actually in DFW.

Of course a lawyer trained in civil law presiding over a civil case wouldn't be concerned about the criminal case. The criminal case was overturned. He has nothing to do with that portion.

I'm not sure why anyone - let alone the President of the United States - would sink so low.

Separating the man from his policies as much as possible, I just can't wrap my head around how someone gets to be 71 and a success in most common definitions of the word, financially and achievement-wise anyway, and you still don't have an ounce of human decency.

He's scum. Absolute scum.

Would have been great if innocent Jordan and his friends would not have gathered with over a hundred others and terrorized a small suburban street with noise and language and threats to anyone looking out a window of a neighbor home; they WENT AFTER neighbors who had the guts to step out and say PLEASE stop the noise, the drinking, the language; and oh and it would have been also great if while the police were there to bring the neighborhood assault to an end, that kids would have not fired off a bunch of rounds in the air to "mess with" the cops that were there.

Harry Hamid said...

1:50: I didn't vote for Hillary, and I'm just not sure how it's a defense of the President's actions to compare them with a woman that pretty much everyone agreed was unlikable and corrupt.

Shouldn't we - shouldn't YOU? - expect better than that? The general thoughts among Trump supporters were that Clinton belonged in jail and now you're using her actions as the standard by which to compare someone who was going to clean up DC?

How expectations have fallen!

I think President Trump is going to do a good job. But the most joy that I get out of this whole thing, and I hope it's 2 terms, is watching the liberal idiots just go into total melt down. Trump needs psychiatric care? It gets better everyday. The real problem is that they cant believe that us idiots that voted for Trump are actually running the country again. Keep it coming, I haven't laughed this hard since Reagan!!

That a Trump exist doesn't surprise me, but that 34 percent of Americans support him drives me to prayer

Trump's personal attack against two talking-heads is so far beneath the office of the President of the United States, it is shocking. What is more disgusting and even more shameful than the President of the United States' vile comments is the fact there are Americans who are supporting and excusing Trump's deplorable actions.

This "my side, your side," Democrats vs Republicans mentality MUST stop. It's more than past the time Americans go back to being Americans and stop being foot soldiers for the failing political party of their choice. Both political parties are sh!te and declaring "your party" is better is nothing more than declaring you prefer that party's sh!te over the other party's.

Where is the same outrage over Trump being "thin skinned" that there was for Obama being "thin skinned?"

"A house divided against itself cannot stand."
~ Abraham Lincoln

I still stand by my assertion that it's better to have Crazy than Evil as POTUS. However, it's beyond the pale that there are Americans encouraging and excusing the craziness of Crazy. This double standard is especially hypocritical since those same people were only too eager to call out and condemn the evil of Evil.

Harry Hamid said...

4:29: You don't find that to be troubling in itself? That what we look for in national leaders is not a basic sense of decency and dignity, ability to make us look good before the world, respectability, leadership, but rather tendency to hurl childish insults at other Americans who we don't agree with us?

Really?

To me (and this is just me - I'm not saying that YOU shouldn't consider social policy and discourse to basically be a giant high school slam book), that's not any way to run a country.

I hope we find something better.
