The Campaign For DA

10.30.2017

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Special counsel Robert Mueller's grand jury has indicted Trump's former campaign manager in the Russia probe. It begins. 
  • And always remember this graphic from Fox News.
  • Kevin Spacey had a heck of statement yesterday regarding allegations he abused a young boy. If there was going to be another season of House of Cards there won't be now. 
  • My theory of there are ads buried everywhere became even more true during the World Series this weekend. In the bullpen, there was some website scribble on the back wall in big letters. Later, from the same camera position, it turned into a full blown professional graphic. 
  • I was in Florida this weekend for a softball tournament. Like I said on Friday, traveling is a beating. I had the most intensive TSA pat down going through screening and they even swabbed my hands with the guy turning to another TSA agent and saying, "I've got to check this" as he then went to some kind of machine. I could be wrong, but they seem to be on high alert. 
  • Oh, and American Airlines issued two boarding passes for me and another guy which had the same seat assignment. 
  • We went to Cocoa Beach which pretty much looks like Padre Island with all the sea weeds on the shore. 
  • But it did give rise to a picture of me looking at a Random Thought Girl taken by Mrs. LL. (The wind is blowing my hair by the way.) And, yes, I have no butt. 
  • We also went to Disney World. There are a multitude of parks now but I wanted to go back to the original for nostalgic reasons. Our family went there as a kid and after we got home my dad wanted to know the stock price of Disney. Nothing has changed. That place is printing money.
  • One thing I noticed about Disney World: Around noon all you see is beaten down parents with happy kids. A few hours later you've got beaten down parents and beaten down kids. 
  • "You stand right here and I'll be right back. I don't want to issue a 'Silver Alert'" - Mrs. LL to me. I tend to get lost from time to time. 
  • At the softball complex near Orlando, I took a walk and found a pond and, much to my surprise, a baby alligator. Mrs. LL came to see it and we both had the same thought: "Where's momma?" as we suddenly had our heads on a swivel.
  • The team of the Freshman in the House lost every game. I think it was eight. But Mrs. LL and I got into an argument when a coach of her team yelled at the third baseman (the dugout was on that side) after the batter laid down a perfect bunt which no one could possibly have gotten to. The coach yelled, "You have to anticipate that!"  My position: You're the coach. If you saw it coming (which is obvious), tell the kid to cheat up. You see that in college softball all the time. Her position: The coach is teaching the kid a lesson for not having situational awareness.
  • I watched about three episodes of the new season of Stranger Things. That's good stuff. And the fact that Paul Reiser, from Mad About You,  is in it is fantastic. (But, man, we all get old.)
  • That was a crazy Major League game last night but it was into five hours in the ninth when the score was 12-12.
  • As I predicted, Texas beat Baylor. #Liar #MayNotBeSportsGenius

The Mueller indictment will turn out to be another nothing burger. Don’t be sad Little Barry.

Did you read the indictments?

These are for crimes beginning in.....2006... he served Trump for 3 months and resigned.

Next Fake News please.

As with most sports (my son is soccer goalie) anticipation is the difference between a good and a great player. If she would have anticipated the bunt she would have easily thrown the runner out, to the untrained eye it would look like a routine play without realizing the genius of awareness, positioning and anticipation.

There’s a great optical illusion in your picture of you checking out the big ass. Zoom in on the guy in the blue shorts on the far right and it appears that he has major wood as he’s looking at the RTG.

Coach should have had her cheat up and then could teach her the reason why upon returning to dugout so she could anticipate the situation next time.

So Mueller just made Manafort synonomous with Scooter Libby?

Skippy Finfrock, The website scribble was on the wall in one bullpen and a sign in the other bullpen. Great detective work.

Came for the whataboutism, and I must admit I'm a little disappointed, but maybe that's because those who know, know enough to STFU.

These may be for earlier crimes, but those are probably just the easiest ones to find. He would have been more careful closer to the time he worked for Trump.

Also--the conspiracy charge could easily reach Trump Jr. He was the one who helped set up the meeting with the Russian lawyer, for which he was expressly looking for dirt on Clinton, and asked Kushner to attend too. Kushner got up and left, but it was set up by Junior with Manafort connections, so they are pretty screwed.

Congrats to the great Iowa State Hawkeyes for slapping the Texas Cowtown University (TCU) horned frogs.

TCU Players like Kenny Hill are probably tired of Gary Patterson's cheerleading, rah-rah coaching style and have tuned out Gary boy's BS. Eyes up. Keep a Climbin!

Speaking of Patterson, it looks like the TV coverage never shows him toweling off anymore on the sidelines. It's mostly smoke & mirrors at old Texas Cowtown University, anyway.

Tip of the iceberg. I for one am elated that our SAD liddle DonaldTator is denying and deflecting like mad - the signs of guilt.

Kevin Spacey is attempting to move the focus from attempted statutory rape to him being gay.

9:39: yes, I read them and they started in 2006 and continued through to 2017. It also involves $75 million paid by foreign entities to Trump's campaign manager. The indictment is very detailed about the dates, the amounts, and the fake companies set up. This is only a few months into the investigation and the indictment is incredibly detailed. If there was nothing to it, the detail and charges would be much, much less.

DF Third Rate Lawyer, Clinton was looking for dirt on Trump when she paid for the fake dossier so why isn't she being charged with collusion with the Russians?

Indictment of Paul Manafort were things done while he was working with Podesta during the Obama Admin.

Don't let this fraudster BO or the left tell you otherwise.

"He was already an experienced criminal before I hired him" is an interesting defense for Trump.

11:57 and 12:23 are probably the same dolt; too stupid to read the indictments to truly grasp and understand the severity of Trump and his minions situation. I'm sure it's true for all of Trump's supporters, the stupid and deplorable.

@3:45

You sir/madam are stupid if you think anything will come out of any of this. Republicans and Democrats are merely trying to look as if they are doing something. In the end, no one goes to jail, gets fined, gets fired, or any other punishment.

Business as usual for Washington DC.

Oh yeah, it's the Iowa State Cyclones who slapped TCU a good one.

There's a funny TCU sign at OldRow that shows what the letters TCU stand for. Tiny C**k University. I hope this makes it past the censors.

3:45, Did you see in the indictment the words collusion, Russia or Trump anywhere?

Anonymous said...

Manafort did such a bad job hiding his activities, that it took only months for Mueller to come up with 12 very detailed charges which will most likely stand. The rumors I'm hearing around Papadopoulos is that he put plead guilty, because he was cooperating with the investigation and that he attended several meetings while wearing a wire. So, yes, somewhat gleeful. It's really sad that all the Trumpsters have gone quiet today. Is it because they can't read, don't have ability to understand the charges, or are unpatriotic?

Trump still winning

6:06: Yes, according to a lawyer on PBS, there is no legal definition of collusion (maybe Barry can chime in). However, the charge that comes near collusion = conspiracy, which is the first charge against Manafort and Gates.

wordkyle said...

751 - Yes, "conspiracy" ...against the United States government, as in they "conspired" (according to the charges) to launder and conceal (from the government) a bunch of money they made working as unregistered agents on behalf of Ukraine. Without even going into the shakiness that some of the charges seem to be -- Mueller overcharging Manafort to squeeze him into flipping is not an irrational idea -- that's a pretty far cry from working with the Russians to steal an election.
