The Campaign For DA

11.10.2017

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • The jury in the Twin Peaks case, after deliberating for hours, said they were deadlocked, but the judge will have them come back today. But the jury did send out a bombshell note. Remember, this prosecution is not about a murder but about the leader of the Bandidos at the Waco restaurant being accused of Engaging In Organized Criminal Activity.. Also recall the gun fight was between the Bandidos and the Cossacks. The jury note: "Mr. P indicated he has personal experience with the Cossacks and his opinion won't change." How did he get on the jury, Mr. DA?
  • I just looked back at an old article, juror questionnaires were sent out and, "They also will be asked what they know about the Bandidos and Cossacks . . . ." It would be interesting to know how Mr. P answered that.
  • I'm going Roy Moore heavy now. This is fascinating. 
    • Republican Alabama Senate candidate and all around nutcase Roy Moore sent Washington into a tizzy yesterday when allegations of sexual assault of a minor (a long time ago) were published.The person making these very old allegations against Moore is now an assistant district attorney. Oh, my. Edit: I was wrong. It was Moore who was assistant DA when this allegedly occurred. (And there are three other independent accounts from legal-aged teenagers that said he pursued them when he was in his 30s.)
    • Cruz and Cornyn endorsed him against Luther Strange who was Trump's boy. There were many, many Republican Senators yesterday saying he should step down if the allegations are true. There is no way that stubborn old man is going to step down. He's been so stubborn before that he was removed from the bench in Alabama. And he was also later suspended from the bench for unethical conduct. And this is in Alabama!
    • So what are the Republicans to do? Support an alleged pedophile? Well, I suppose they did support the Grab 'Em By guy so that's not much of a big next step.
    • But if he did step down, the Dems get a Senate seat. The ballots have already been printed and if Moore were to receive more votes, they simply are not counted. 
    • And now his dissenting opinions seem to make a little more sense: 
    • But this is my favorite defense of him by an Alabama elected official. It'a almost like saying he believes God is a pimp. Oh, Alabama.: 
    • The official Texas Prosecutor Twitter account did not approve Sean Hannity's defense of Moore. That's a bold statement: 
  • Changing gears, Junior's been acting a little crazy.
  • OJ got banned from a Las Vegas casino after allegedly being drunk and unruly.  Lay low, guy! Lay low!
  • This is one of the craziest cat-fishing stories you'll ever read. (Via Deadspin)
  • What? A Nazi passed a bad check? You can't even trust the Klan these days. 
  • Trump is in Vietnam. Radio guy Mark Davis, who is getting crazier and crazier, said the other morning is that the only way we could have won would have been to "drop a nuke on them." Good lord, man. Plus, we lost the war and what were the consequences of South Vietnam falling? Nothing. The war itself, not Communist Vietnam, was far worse on that country. 
  • Nice touch: Baylor lights up the Administration Building green when they win. For the first time all season, they got to do it last weekend. You know who got to throw the switch? Jalen Pitre  -- the only recruit from the 2016 class who didn't bolt after the scandal broke. 
  • I watched the 30 for 30 on Rick Flair. I didn't mean to, it just happened. I had no idea who he was because no "sport" has been off my radar since high school more than "wrestling." But I'll tell you, that was one fantastic documentary. And that guy is Wheels Off.
  • There has been an arrest in the Dollar General shooting of the clerk: A 15 year old boy. Two days ago on Fox 4, a detective said he thought the guy didn't mean to shoot her but that the gun went off when he reached for the money (1) Even if he believes it, I can't believe he said it. If evidence turns up to the contrary, he is now married to that statement. (2) The kid is still screwed. Even though he might not have intended the death, there is still a way to be creative and charge him with murder.

Regarding Roy Moore, there are few greater pleasures then seeing a self-righteous hypocrite fall from grace.

Barry Green claims that The person making these very old allegations against Moore is now an assistant district attorney. Oh, my.

The Washington Post is reporting that the woman works as a customer service representative at a payday loan business.

I know who I believe is reporting the truth. Oh, my.

Quote from Barry Green - "I'm going Roy Moore heavy now. This is fascinating." Hey, Skippy. Your double standards are amazing AND astounding. Where were you when your boy Bill Clinton was caught with his pants down NUMEROUS times? Wasn't his law license pulled, too? Oh yeah . . . . . you were too busy trying to run for office locally as a Republican. Yep, you really are hilarious these days. More like pitiful, if you ask me. . . . .

Rick Flair = greatness.
Went to a Rangers game early in the season and instead of the wave, the whole stadium went round and round with a huge Rick flair Whooooo. Which, as wheels off as 'rasslin' really is, was kind of cool.

Top Republicans have already stated he should resign if there is any substance to the allegations. And you are a defense attorney. You are fake news. Why haven't you ever mentioned the "bloodbath" of Hollywood RAPISTS?

Yea, 9:40, always believe the person of stature, influence, position, or wealth. On the other side, those people on the lower rungs of the socio-economic ladder or life in general are ruled untrustworthy automatically.

I think not. I say let it play out, see who else backs her story or comes forward with their own tale before judging. Facts. All the facts. That's what is fair.

I wonder why she waited all these years to accuse Moore? What great timing. If it's true than damn him but so far he is accused, but that's all it takes in the news.

Richard Spencer bounced a check? I am shocked! He seemed such an upstanding young man from all appearences.

O.J. better be careful. The Mormons or the Mob will take him for a one way trip to the Nevada desert if he hacks them off too much.

All the top national Republicans probably feel like I did when I co-signed that car loan for my worthless brother-in-law. Not a wise decision on our parts, in spite of our hopes.

Barry, a question from a non-lawyer. Are jury questionnaires considered an Open Record in Texas and can eventually be requested to be seen by average Joe Citizen? Just wondering.

10:49 obviously did not watch, or did not pay attention to, Ken Burn's "Viet Nam". Those little "Viet Min" weren't about to give in.

I'm going Roy Moore heavy now.

Clearly, candidate Moore would have more credibility with the blog host if he were a stinking drunk driving around on the public roadways. But, as it stands, the deck is stacked against Moore, as he is white, Christian, older, and Republican. Oh, and it seems it's also now a negative to be from Alabama.

I believe most Republicans have indicated that Moore should bow out if these allegations are true. I agree, he should walk away in shame if the allegations are true. But inasmuch as he's been no stranger to controversy before, is it not curious that these allegations have not been raised previously, and have only come to light now that he is a contender for a U.S. Senate seat?

Is due process only accorded to progressives, agnostics, Democrats, and people of color?

Thousands of South Vietnamese being murdered is nothing to Barry. Laos, Cambodia? Nothing to Barry.

I don't doubt Roy Moore did those things but they waited to see if Moore won to go public for political reasons. If Strange won we would have never heard about it. This is the kind of despicable dirty politics libfuchs have used for years.

You may want to note that this blog was started in 1997. President Clinton's parlays were old news at that point.

Since today is the "Observed" Veteran's Day, to all the Veterans out there who read this blog: High Guys and Gals and Thank you for your service. Past or present, in times of peace, in times of war. Thank you making this country a better place than it would be otherwise.

It amazes me how the people who "believed" pizzagate are now coming up with 20 different excuses for Roy Moore and his behavior. The time frame would have been in the 70's. Moore was a DA at the time. How far would the investigation have gone? He kept getting more and more powerful as the decades passed. Have you seen how victims have been treated when they bring up allegations? The culture has changed in the last month. Guess what, pedophiles, rapists, sexual harassers? Hopefully, you won't be able to shame your victims. Barry, that includes a number of your clients. It is past time.

Just heard who contacted Roy Moore's accuser. Funny how big Liberal backers can find all this news at this time in the elections. The accuser is a drug addict, and very heavy in debt. Or should I say was heavy in debt. My what money can buy.
