The Campaign For DA

1.17.2018

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • It's a cold morning for that to happen
  • Someone told me a story of three people dying a few months back due to an incident at a Best Western in Perryton when the indoor pool malfunctioned and carbon monoxide was released upwards into the rooms above the pool. Two of those people were from Bridgeport. There is very, very little coverage of this event. 
  • A Canadian judge resigned after remarking to law students "that she felt uncomfortable having to walk into a room 'full of big dark people' during judicial dispute resolutions, and that she was used to being in an 'ivory tower,' where she’s 'removed from the riff raff.'” (Good. Although I'm of the firm belief that "riff raff" is a funny term.)
  • The White House doctor who performed Trump's annual checkup said that Trump asked him to give him a cognitive test. There is no way Trump knows the word "cognitive."
  • The Wise County marijuana bust has now made it to the DFW news outlets. They need to ask why the WCSO stole the 287 sign. 
  • Trump's porn star girlfriend, who he saw while he was married, spoke to Slate in 2016.
  • Dallas lawyer Doug Mulder has died. He might be most famous for being a prosecutor on a case which led to the movie A Thin Blue Line detailing how the conviction, which included a death sentence, was wrongful.  When I was DA in the the 1990s he actually came up to my office. He was representing a guy in a drug case where there had been a seizure of the defendant's car. He wanted to give the State the car in exchange for a lenient sentence on the criminal case. I said, "It sounds like your trying to negotiate the criminal case and civil case together." His reply, "That's exactly what I'm doing."
  • Wow: Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski has committed suicide. He was a sophomore who started at the end of the year including the Holiday Bowl. 
  • Let's see what Trump is doing this morning: 
  • Bonham ISD has shut down school for a week because of a flu outbreak. 
  • National Park News: Nearly all members of a board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. (And, by the way, the fee to enter a park has doubled to $80 a vehicle.)

"3 hospitalized following carbon monoxide leak at Perryton hotel"

Did they die or just get sick? - big difference!

How much does Trump weigh and how did he grow one inch since last year? I want his doctor for my annual checkup! Love his doctor said Trump could live to be 200, good genes! If we believe his reported weight and height, we need a cognitive test!

Trump is an Evangical icon, forget about his affair with a porn star!

The doctor was the same one from Walter Reed that examined President Obama. I have no problem with these results. It's funny watching the libs flip out over him only weighing 240 (which surprised me).

The Perryton Best Western story may not of received a lot of coverage but the same incident in Michigan got a lot of coverage in April of last year.

1 child killed, 13 people hospitalized after suspected carbon monoxide leak at Michigan hotel pool

Are you sure the people at the Best Western in Perryton died? 3 people died from CO poisoning at a Best Western in Boone NC, but I don't think they died in Perryton, in which case it really wasn't much of a story.

Hey Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

Might want to check your facts, Skippy. The fee to enter national parks went up, but very few went to $80 per vehicle. Yellowstone and Grand Canyon both charge a $30 per vehicle fee, and it is good for 7 days. Try to get that deal at Six Flags. So it's not nearly as bad as you make it sound.

Skippy, did you like how Trump bitch slapped Ocasta of CNN news fame yesterday? Winning is so much fun! What is it with all of these talking heads that think they are able to diagnose Trump's mental stability?

I have no problem at all with the increase in park entrance fees. Wish Texas would triple or quadruple theirs. It's much more likely to keep the assholes out that dump trash all over the trails, so I wouldn't have to carry a trash bag on every hike.

Canadian judge story:
I'm curious about the disproportionate number of "big dark people" in law school up there in the Great White North, that caused her level of discomfort. At the risk of sounding racially insensitive myself, aren't most of the big dark people in Canada already employed by the Toronto Raptors?

Why is a government shutdown caused by Republicans evil but when it's caused by weenies it's the right thing to do?

Obviously, I misread the part about the judge. The big dark people weren't law students, they were the people involved in judicial dispute resolutions. I blame it on my faulty Canadian-to-American translator. There's an app for that!

8:44 - It's not the sex life that's the problem, it's the "paying hush money" part. If he could be blackmailed by a porn star over mere adultery allegations (since he's a self-admitted serial adulterer), who else has even more compromising info on him that they could use as blackmail? Are you comfortable with the President being blackmailed?

Well, whenever Trump does an intern and the CIA calls him and says they have captured or can capture the equivalent of Osama Bin Laden, and he says.....'nah. lettem go.' then I will get upset with Trump.

Until then, I really don't care.

The sheer spectacle of the President of the United States being blackmailed by a porn star is so salacious, it’s threatened to obscure the more salient points of the story. First, it demonstrates that Trump is willing to do the bidding of those who try to blackmail him over his sexual escapades, which tells us a lot about the “Pee Pee Tape” scandal. Second, it raises the question of how Trump managed to come up with $130,000 to pay off Stormy Daniels. Trump is, after all, broke. Trump does have assets worth billions of dollars. But his self-admitted debts alone serve to largely wipe out the value of those assets. Throw in the overseas debts that he’s gone to such great lengths to try to hide, and it’s not difficult to figure out that Trump has a negative net worth. When you’re upside down financially, you have a hard time getting your hands on cash. Even if you don’t want to accept that Trump is broke, you’ll have to agree that he’s a cheapskate. He does everything he can to avoid paying anyone what he owes or promises. When he does occasionally pay his bills, he typically finds someone else to pay them. For instance, it’s already been documented that Trump has been using the money he raised for his supposed 2020 reelection campaign to pay for his son’s legal fees in the Russia scandal. In addition, he was using funds from the Republican National Committee to pay his own legal fees in the Russia scandal. It turned out those funds were being funneled through an RNC Super PAC from a Kremlin oligarch with dual U.S. citizenship, which makes the whole thing even more suspicious. In fact it was such a bad look that once it was exposed to the public, the RNC shut down the entire money funneling operation. So let’s stop and ask where Donald Trump would have gotten his hands on $130,000 in the final month of the campaign. If he had taken the money from his own campaign funds, it would have shown up in FEC filings long ago. If Trump didn’t pay the money out of his own pocket, and he almost never does, was this payment also made by a Republican National Committee Super PAC? If so, then the Republican Party paid blackmail money to an adult film actress just before election day to try to keep its candidate in the game. This must be investigated further.
