The Campaign For DA

7.11.2017

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • An assistant DA in Dallas was arrested for DWI after a one car crash near White Rock Lake. It sounds like it was right out of Dukes of Hazzard as one of her tires was ripped off.
  • I saw an argument this weekend on Lake Bridgeport between guys in two bass boats after a fishing etiquette violation. That was a first. 
  • A Lockheed Martin made KC-130, used as a refueling tanker, crashed in Mississippi yesterday killing 16 Marines. 
  • We had a rare sighting of the Texas Law Hawk in the Wise County Courthouse yesterday. 
  • When Drudge turns on the Administration, things are getting seriously ramped up.
  • Ok, here's the skinny on the breaking news that caused Drudge to go into red alert last night. (1) What has been admitted: Donald Trump Jr., the president's son-in-law Kushner, and Trump's then campaign manager Paul Manafort met with a Russian lawyer right at the time of Trump getting the Repubican Nomination.  The purpose of the meeting, and this is admitted, was that the lawyer might have some dirt on Hillary. The meeting was arranged by publicist  Rob Goldstone who has connections to Russia via Trump's Miss Universe pageant. (2) Now here's the email bombshell: The New York Times reported last night that before that meeting, Goldstone emailed Trump Jr. and told him the meeting was "part of a Russian government effort to aid his father's candidacy."  (3) Why is that important other than the obvious? If true, the "there is no evidence of collusion" argument dies and Trump Jr. met with a foreign government rep in an effort to impact the American election. (4) What to watch for today: Does the Trump Administration deny the existence of the email and start screaming "Fake News!"? Trump ignored the entire controversy on Twitter this morning. In any event, there will be calls for subpoenas and testimony today.  Secondly, what do ranking Republicans do? Will they start distancing from Trump or come running to his defense?
  • And now the firing of Comey looks much, much worse. 
  • Possible human bones have been found in Southlake just south of 114.
  • The NFL no longer has Viagra and Cialis as major sponsors. Our long national and uncomfortable nightmare is over. 
  • "U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officer and Two Others Plead Guilty to Roles in Marihuana Distribution Conspiracy."

The Obama administration gets Americans killed including an Ambassador then covers it up. No big deal to Barry. Trumps son meets with a Russian lady and Barry is beside himself.

Ok 34%, your man has turned out to be Russian agent, but you hang in there till he takes away your healthcare and ruins the coverage the rest of us have.

More crazy cops. Please. So what if some guy covers himself with gasoline, holds a lighter, and runs at people screaming "I'm going to kill myself and burn you up too". Clearly, that person's relative has EVERY RIGHT to be enraged that the police would just randomly show up and then have to take some kind of action. Horrible police. Innocent citizens. Hey kids, your lesson for today is that if you'd like not to get tased by police, it's a fantastic idea not to cover yourself in gasoline and run around with a lighter and threatening to add more people to your death wish.

Barry, did you see the video of a Bridgeport PD officer that was almost hit by a drunk driver while on another traffic stop in Bridgeport this weekend? I was surprised you didn't put it in your blog. It's on their FB page.

The ubiquitous "Russian Connection." I hope no one sees anyone in the administration watching "The Hunt for Red October", then it would be obvious that the entire administration has a "Russian Connection."

Big. Big. Of. Nothing.

You're actually setting yourself up for more heartache counselor. To get your hopes up in the "this is finally it" moment, only to be let down, yet again.

The C-130 first flew in 1954. It and all of its variants are still serving our military 63 years later, an amazing service life. Condolences to the families of the Marines killed in the Mississippi crash.

Regarding the Trump Russian e-mail story - The person who received the e-mail said there was nothing about Russian government involvement. The person who sent the e-mail said there was nothing about Russian government involvement.

On the other hand, anonymous sources who supposedly "have knowledge of" the e-mail tell the NYTimes differently. In their own story the Times includes this tidbit: "It is unclear whether Mr. Goldstone (the sender) had direct knowledge of the origin of the damaging material." That seems to contradict the whole point of the claim.

I'd say this is yet another piece of anti-Trump agitprop that may or may not mean anything, as so many such stories so far have been. At this point the media are to be trusted less than any alleged participants in their stories.

If one were to count all eligible voters in the US, only 34% cast voted for Trump. Hillary had like 35-36%. The point is that voter turnout is abismal so a small group of people elect the president (but it's really like 1/3). Obama was proof that voter turnout can be great if the people have a candidate to get excited about.

I loe when Wordkyle defends the indefensible.

We know, because Trump admitted, that he met with Russians with the intent of receiving dirt on Clinton. This is in a meeting that he said never happened, then it happened but it was about adoptions, then it was because he had to because somehow the Democrats forced him to.

And of course this is after months of denying that ANY Trump surrogate met with Russians, only to find out time and time again about new meetings that were undisclosed, including this one.

In what world are Republicans OK with this sort of collusion with Russians?

I continue to find incomprehensible why so many of you continue to defend Trump and mock 'the left' about it. 'The left' aren't the only ones who find him to be a vulgar, crass, deadbeat, narcissist who (a) has never paid his debts, (b) has never shown an ounce of real loyalty to anyone except sycophants, (c) has never read an article or book unless it was about him, and (d) wouldn't know the truth if it slapped him in the face.
But he, and many of you, continue to bleat about 'crooked Hillary'. ?? A. Hillary is no longer the point. B. 'Crooked' how? Remember when Trump promised to appoint a 'special prosecutor' to go after her? What happened to THAT? Nothing. Because Hillary Clinton, despite her many flaws, is NOT a criminal. She is just a politician. Wake up! All that 'crooked' crap was nothing but Republican propaganda.
Does that make the 'Russia connection' allegations against Trump Democratic propaganda? Unfortunately, no. Is some of it overblown? Undoubtedly. But much of it looks very substantial. And given Trump's character - or lack thereof - it is scarily believable.

Total left wing nonsense. I would bet that there were people, companies, foundations, entities and even FOREIGN GOVERMENTS that offered dirt to each candidate......we know NBC was in the tank for Clinton (Access Hollywood) which doesn't constitute collusion. She was former Secretary of State and met with, hmm.........diplomats and leaders (government and private sector) from other countries.....those who would have dirt on her. Accepting information (or listening to information) does not mean collusion occurred....total crap. Moreover, if the most vile, disgusting, repulsive group of people known to man (let's say lawyers) offered information and even stated that they were rooting and wanted to help a candiate win and even offered information; that still doesn't mean collusion (or that a candiate supported or endorsed that group) occurred...........even if a candidate accepted the information. Barack Obama gladly accepted help from horrible entities and never once was there calls of collusion.....he simply took their help. Russia (whether officially or not) probably did offer dirt (like many others) and Trump may have accepted it or even dismissed it but calls of collusion for such.......total garbage.

Didn't Trans Texas Airways fly the civilian version of the 130, called the DC 7?
ALSO: Wasn't it the C 130 that flew " the Hump " during WWII in Burma? That would have been in the 1940s.

It's very telling how the lefties here operate. Asking how can anyone (specifically Wordy) defend the indefensible), and provide a laundry list of negative characteristics they believe are true about Trump.

It goes something like this, "Trump is horrible, so everything he does is evil, he's indefensible."

That is a very sophomoric analysis of most Trump supporters.

Most Trump supporters will defend him when there is a defense to be made. That doesn't mean that Trump supporters give him a pass on everything else. That's seems to be what the lefties believe, but similar to an average CNN news article, it's just made up.

1024 - Read the NY Times story. If you already did, read it again. Get back to us when you understand it. Then comment on my statements you cited.

As for the rest of you, don't misunderstand. I'm not defending Trump, nor any actions of his or his team. I'm attacking the stupidity shown by the media and the Left when they concoct these conspiracies. The commenter above nailed it - someone could watch "The Hunt for Red October" and it would be considered (by your side) proof of collusion.

Hillary's defeat sent you guys off the deep end. You have acted crazy for going on eight months now, and you don't even realize it.
The Atlantic sees it. ("How the Left lost its mind")
Bob Woodward sees it.
Camille Paglia sees it. (Democrats spun out of control "in a nationwide orgy of rage and spite")

But you smart, smart people just don't see it.

I love it when you libtards jump up and down with glee when any story comes out that has the appearance of something sinister inside the Trump administration. Haven't you learned anything yet from your previous happy dances? I know, I know, you are still trying to recover from your nightmare on November 8, 2016. But this roller coaster of emotions you are riding on has got to be taking a terrible toll on you. My advice is you should hang on and wait for the truth to come out. Even if it doesn't go the way you would like. Believe me, I know. The Obama years started out rough for me as well. And I can tell you, it will still be years before we find out all the underhanded, despicable things that that fool did. But it will come out! And when the history books are written a hundred years from now, Obama will look like the most crooked President in the history of this country, and Trump will look like the President that tried the hardest to deliver on his promises. And Congress will once again be the reason that conservative truth and direction was left on the floor of the house and senate. Democrats and Republicans in those chambers will be the death of democracy.
But celebrate your brains out today, and cry tomorrow. But you are not looking at the long term picture. And it looks bleak.

Wordkyle: If you run into an asshole in the morning, then you just ran into an asshole. But if you run into assholes all day long--you're the asshole.

Maybe you should stop attacking those reporting the facts just because you think they're a little excited about all of these facts coming out, and get on the right side of history.

It is absolutely clear that the Trump organization attempted to collude with the Russians. His e-mails state as much. His own damn e-mails. They went into that meeting looking for information, and believed it to be coming from the Russian government.

If you don't see that, you're stupid. If you do and don't care, or care more about the media than treason and violation of several laws, you're the liar Rage has always said you were. And I don't think you're that stupid.

1236 - The reporting of non-facts is what I've been harping on. This story, based on the latest information, is now closer to being worthy of attention.

As for your attempts to insult me, two things: #1, You're an anon who can crawl back into your hole without having to back up anything you say, and #2, you're a Leftist (or a troll,) which by definition means you're irrational, probably mentally ill, and live in a world of delusion. For these reasons your opinion is pretty much something I'd scrape off the bottom of my shoe.

Oh, and you argue like a two-bit lawyer, which amplifies my previous points.

What are any of you, who are revelling in the bumbling of Trump, hoping to be the outcome of Trump's fall? Do you really think the US would do any better "lead" by the fanatical right wingnut Pence?

Barry sits on the sidelines sniping and reporting, with glee, any Trump failure, real or merely conjured by the leftist media. Trumpers ignore any real failure of Trump, thus refusing to hold Trump responsible for his failures/transgressions.

You partisans are what is wrong with the US and prove the adages, "Every nation has the government it deserves" and "In a democracy people get the leaders they deserve."
