The Campaign For DA

12.04.2017

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Texas Rep. Brent Farenthold (far right) used over $80,000 tax dollars to settle a sexual harassment claim. He is a former conservative talk show host and graduated from Incarnate Word. He is married (that ain't her) with two kids.
  • The Aggies money whipped Jimbo Fisher and landed him. This is full Aggie. 10 years and $75 million. And if they fire him at any point, he is entitled to the full balance on his contract. But when he left Tallahassee,  he left:
  • I deal with lots of folks who are in now in trouble because it all started because of a traffic stop by the police. One development I've seen over the last three years is that they have no idea where they were when they were stopped because "I was using the GPS."
  • Buzzfeed had a funny headline after the Flynn guilty plea. And they are right. Kushner is next.
  • I did a double take on Saturday morning when I scanned past one of the ESPN channels and saw the Cornhole League Playoffs: Georgia v. Florida. Idiocracy is speeding at us at warp speed.
  • I don't know how the Fort Worth Police can screw around wasting taxpayer dollars. And did they pay a licensing fee to use the image of Chewbacca?
  • Texas AG  Ag Commissioner Sid Miller proudly announced that the defeated Sheriff Joe, who had to be pardoned by Trump to avoid a jail sentence, has endorsed him. 
  • There's nothing more disturbing than your dog going crazy and barking in the middle of the night. Our default (groggy) reaction is always, "He knows something that we do not?!" 
  • Wait. What? Is that a "b"? And you think it would be the other way around.
  • I spliced wires on some old mini Christmas lights to get rid of dead ones. I even used one of those electrical wire cutters to strip away the plastic casings. It was a total success despite Mrs. LL cocking an eyebrow. 
  • Well, I correctly predicted Oklahoma would throttle TCU. Is there a Sports Genius Hall of Fame? I'd be a first ballot inductee.
  • Trump, via Twitter, denigrated the FBI this weekend and endorsed an Alabama pedophile this morning and admitted to a crime (which the White House later tried to blame on his lawyer.) As to the latter, I can't tell you the number of times I have overtaken my clients' twitter accounts and tweeted something that will get them indicted. It's Law School 101.
  • The Republicans passed a 479 page tax bill 51-49 at 2:00 on Saturday morning. The Dems made a motion to recess until Monday so they could read it. The Republicans said no. Those handwritten amendments were troubling. 
    This is real.
  • Wade Emmert, who in my opinion might be the biggest spare political activist there is, was ousted at the Dallas Republican Chair last year by a guy who spent $30 to do so. Now he's the new Assistant General Counsel to the Texas GOP. Texas does have swamps, doesn't it?

Sir- Sid Miller is the the Texas Commissioner of Ag, not the AG.

I'm pretty sure that Sid Miller is not AG. Ag Commissioner, maybe.

"I deal with lots of folks who are in now in trouble because it all started because of a traffic stop by the police." - Funny you should say that today. That's kinda what happened to Flynn. The Obama administration used the all-but-dead Logan Act (nobody's ever been convicted of violating it) to sabotage Trump before he ever took office. Additionally, Obama's DOJ and FBI used the hoax Steele dossier to justify the investigations we now have.

As I've said before, somebody will be convicted of something, but it won't be for colluding with Russia to win the election. Failure to obtain a permit, failure to use an apostrophe correctly, failure to scratch off all the spaces on a lottery ticket -- those are more likely.

Wade is a very good guy, good lawyer, and good political administrator -- not much of an "activist." He got pushed out of DCRP by the Tea Party crazies, and the guy who took over immediately screwed things up then quit. The county party asked Wade to come back -- he declined. He'll do well in the new role -- after all, he's a Baylor lawyer.

As for the recess to read the bill that passed....I seem to recall a wild eyed Pelosi telling people they didn't get to read Obamacare bill until they passed it so it seems fair to me.

Barry, never try to fix Xmas tree lights. NEVER. Throw them away and buy new. Until then, get out the home fire extinguisher, put the fire department on speed dial, and place that Xmas tree on 24 hour fire watch until those bad lights can be stripped and cast outside. Your home is as risk for some $1.28 lights.

How does not knowing where you are going because you are using GPS have any affect on a traffic stop? It's none of the officer's business where you are going.

When asked, i just tell them I am enjoying my rights as an american citizen to travel when and where I want without having to answer to anyone for it.

I usually get two tickets and sometimes a search.

Well, I correctly predicted Oklahoma would throttle TCU.

TCU (Tiny C*ck University) is headed to another Alamo Bowl after getting spanked by the great OU Sooners.

TCU coach Gary Patterson has 32 wins and 23 losses in conference play since joining the Big 12. And Texas Christian erected a statue for this guy? Oh, yeah.

The hero quarterback who led TCU to victory in the 2016 Alamo Bowl graduated from TCU with a degree in criminal justice. lol That guy grew up in the River Oaks area of Houston in a family of lawyers and he gets a criminal justice degree like the moron he is.

There was something on NBC yesterday called the Long Drive championship. I only watched one round, where two females just whacked the crap out of a golf ball. They got off a total of 15 shots between them (it's timed), and only one shot landed or stayed in the fairway. If you get to the championship, shouldn't accuracy account for about half of your training?

I was gonna place a bet on that cornhole championship game, but I never heard the Florida/Georgia line

Wordkyle: already 2 people have plead guiilty due to the Russian investigation, so you're wrong on at least one of your points. If I buy drugs and get charged for buying them, it is not the fault of the PD for charging me. It was mine, due to buying the drugs and being caught. Stop blaming Obama for what Trump and his underlings did: commit treason by asking for help from a foreign entity to swing the election.

wordkyle said...

1010 - tsk, tsk, don't settle for that, you can do better. That history's too recent and well-documented to try to pull that story off.

The Democrats, while temporarily controlling Congress and the White House, rammed through Obamacare. Democrats lied to the public about it, bribed their members to vote for it, and foisted it upon Americans over those Americans' desires. Democrats own it lock, stock, and barrel.

Remember when Barry first listened to Prager? Barry exposed himself to be a contemptible fool.

Anonymous said...

Democrats can't really complain about the way the tax bill was rammed through because they did try the same with Obamacare and set the precedent. BUT--several drafts were voted down, and not even all Democrats voted for it and it only passed with the help of an independent vote, so the notion that this is exactly the same isn't correct, either.

It's not Wordkyle's worst lie, but he still knows better.

1125 - I don't claim that nobody associated with Trump did anything wrong. The question is, what did those two you mention plead guilty to? Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to federal officials about his contacts with Russian nationals. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. about conversations he'd had with a Russian. Both "crimes" are wrong and stupid, but neither one is the collusion that Trump critics want to claim, nor particularly nefarious.

You've done your best to completely overstate what has really happened, disregarding anything close to reality. That kind of behavior is why folks on your side are now considered not only foolish, but also insanely delusional.

When I saw the RTG I thought, "If this doesn't get an Official Bacon Rating it's time to have a memorial service for Bacon because Bacon is really dead."

Good to see you, Bacon. Glad to know there are still RTGs who can raise you, from the dead.

mzchief said...

As for Flynn: REALLY!!! People are actually granting credence to the current tale being told by a guy who has admitted to lying to the FBI about something he was doing that wasn't even remotely illegal? After being threatened with 60yrs in prison, 20 years for Flynn Jr and bankrupted Flynn finally was beaten down enough to finger a bigger fish and miraculously now only faces 3 years for lying to the FBI and the matter with Flynn Jr. just vanishes. Flynn has admitted to lying when telling the truth would have been better and now we're to believe Flynn wouldn't lie to pull his fat from the fire as well as save his son.

Some of you people have lost any semblance of objectivity.

Develtrick's finest accomplishment in life is his rap sheet...it's a mile long. Next time you see a lawyer or a liberal or a liberal lawyer...thank him or her for making sure fine citizens like Develtrick are allowed to roam freely adding no value to society.

I actually pointed out that Flynn is an idiot and liar who admittedly lied to the FBI even when it was better to tell the truth and doubtlessly would lie if it was to his benefit.

Thank you for proving my point that some people have lost any semblance of objectivity.

Flynn is just another example of the very poor choices Mr. Trump has made as his advisors. Many he's already fired, his legal advice is tenuous at best and speech/Twitter writers can't get on same page.
Trump likes to call things "disasters". Well is becoming obvious who's our real disaster!
