The Campaign For DA

2.05.2018

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • The federal government is set to borrow $1 trillion this year. That's an 84% increase over last year.
  • Paul Ryan lost his mind bragging about the tax cuts this weekend. He posted, and then quickly deleted, this:
  • The Nunes Memo: Trump said it "vindicated him" in the Mueller investigation. Did he even read it? The co-author of the memo, a Republican, disagreed: 
  • More Nunes memo thoughts: (1) Big bag of nothing, (2) Nothing illegal was done or even alleged to have been illegal in the memo, (3) Carter Page was already under investigation for Russian collusion for two years before the FISA warrant was obtained, (4) The FISA warrant had to be re-approved every 60 days with evidence showing that it was fruitful. It was. By three different judges. (5) Carter Page was in bed with the Russians. (6) Despite Fox News' odd claims, it did not "confirm" that Trump Tower was wiretapped as Trump claims. Carter Page wasn't even with the campaign when the FISA warrant was issued.
  • Eagles coach Doug Pederson is everything Jason Garrett is not. There is no way Garrett goes for it on 4th down early in the second quarter and no way he calls a pass to the quarterback.
  • If he had been named Nick Folestein, would she have written "QB Nick Folestein, Jewish!"?
  • Weird halftime moment as the Patriots headed to the locker room: 
  • Downtown Minneapolis lit up in the shape of Prince's guitar was cool: 
  • I liked Justin Timberlake's tribute to Prince but the song choice ("I Will Die For You") seemed to be, uh, awkward.
  • Number of New England punts last night: 0. Total penalty yards by both teams combined: Just 40.
  • After the stock market plunged 666 points on Friday -- creepy, right? -- it just opened down over 200.

I was disappointed in the halftime show. Justin didn’t even dress up for the ‘big’ performance. It seemed ‘meh ‘ to me.

Barry just copied and pasted the Left’s talking points. I knew that he was a fraud.

1. "Prince's guitar?"
2. "More Nunes memo thoughts: Big bag of nothing" - But we were all warned before hand that releasing it could compromise national security! (FBI) Remember when Democrats called its release a "constitutional crisis?"
2a. "Nothing illegal was done" - If the police search a residence without a warrant, is that called "illegal" and the perps punished by law? Or is it simply considered bad procedure and "tainted"? What would a good defense attorney do with that, counselor?
3. For someone who is so attuned to the misdeeds of law enforcement, you sure seem myopic when it comes to the FBI and DOJ vis-à-vis Trump.

And if Dow goes down another 2,000 points we will be where we were on November 20th of 2017!!!!!!

Need a source for the $1T/84% bit. Not saying I don't believe you because we know the tax cuts won't be made up for, but everything I've read said it only added $1.3T over a decade. I'm curious how we only borrowed $550B last year.

We're about to see a minor correction, I'm afraid. Businesses are still making plenty of money, but housing is about to take a hit. I financed 2 years ago at 3.75% and my broker told me this morning I'm looking at locking in 4.25% at best today on another loan. Couple that with home prices increasing 5-6%/year for the last few years and people are going to have a hard time affording new homes.

I suppose you could ask her. But the snark is more satisfying, right?

As a defense attorney how can you say omitting pertinent fax while obtaining a warrant is a “Big bag of nothing”. You are showing your bias on this one BG! Will you just admit that the FBI did more to influence the election one way or another than Russia ever could. I think Putin is sitting back laughing and got just what he wanted. An America divided.

9:25 - Barry just wants to destroy the West. Tearing down local law enforcement and enabling government tyranny both get the job done.

Trump on Game Day: "Fire everyone who kneels! Back the Blue!"

Trump every other day: "The FBI is terrible! They're criminals! Prosecute the DOJ and CIA!"



I mean, if people peacefully taking a knee makes you more angry than the president undermining the authority of our domestic police agencies and foreign intelligence services, all of whom are fairly conservative, well, that shows how stupid you are. That's OK though. The best thing about Trump is that he allows scumbags to feel safe so they go public and air their ignorance in broad daylight.

9:39 wait until the democrats on the house intelligence committee releases the minority memo. Hillary voters were furious with Comey when he reopened the investigation into the missing state department emails just days before the election, her poll numbers went down. So how did that hurt Trump?

The public was made aware a week before the election the FBI was investigating Trump campaign with Russian meddling in the election. Pappadopolus told the Australian ambassador Russia had information on Clinton's emails. After the dnc was hacked and emails were released, the ambassador contacted the FBI. The FISA warrant was obtained after Carter Page left the Trump campaign.

Reverse the political parties in the memo and Barry would be nonstop talking about how massive a miscarriage of justice it was and how there was a witch hunt!

Barry is right. Trump should do the same thing in 2020 against his opponent to re-election.

10:53 - There is a theory that we don’t actually have free will. Maybe Barry could never have avoided what he has become and maybe we can’t take credit for who we are.

Carter Page had already been cleared by the FBI and had helped the FBI obtain a conviction in 2013.

9:05 perhaps advising to jump in the market this morning was not wise. Remember when Trump ask how do you like your 401k? Using the stock market to gage the economy is not an accurate measurement.

" (5) Carter Page was in bed with the Russians. (6) Despite Fox News' odd claims, it did not "confirm" that Trump Tower was wiretapped as Trump claims. Carter Page wasn't even with the campaign when the FISA warrant was issued"

DISCLAIMER
I am not an attorney, and I have no law enforcement background so there may be some very obvious and simple factors that prohibit what I am about to say based on facts as I understand them.

So, the FBI begins to investigate Carter Page in 2013, and in fact approaches him and informs him that they think he is being recruited by the Russians. Fast forward three years, and the FBI KNOWS Carter Page is on Trumps team and has him under surveillance, but does not bother to mention that small detail to Mr. Trump, and WARN him about Carter Page. So in effect, they knowingly allowed someone who might be a Russian recruit to work on a presidential campaign, and used that very person as an excuse to continue surveillance on the Trump campaign.

I don't care how much you may dislike Trump, that is just plain wrong, and if there was any actual collusion going on, it seems to me that it falls more on the law enforcement and intelligence departments than on Trump.

9:57 AM---- By all means, feel free to take a knee.....underneath my desk.

2:57 is spot on. Go one step farther. They would even be capable of paying and planting Page. He might have been the "insurance policy". Or an integral part of it. It's just too coincidental. And if you're not concerned about the blatant politicization of the FBI you are a total idiot. Like somebody else already mentioned, if you don't scream now knowing Obama did it, you have to STFU when Trump does in a couple years.

It would be refreshing to see Barry post one morning, "you know, maybe you guys have something of a point; I can be somewhat blind when it comes to misdeeds against Trump. I just don't like the guy, so there." 2:57 is so on point. There isn't a SAC out there that would relish taking that sort of flaming bag of dog poo to a Federal Judge in, say, a drug bust case or a murder case. Unless the Judge in charge is sitting Justice Ginsberg, a/k/a "the Turtle", that agent would get dressed down and probably reported to his or her superiors. I don't like Trump as a person, but that doesn't mean I can't see his constitutional rights being trampled underfoot, and I don't remember ever reading anything about one losing those rights just because they elected to run for office. Its like someone at the FBI had an epiphany and said, "look, they use a different standard for defamation cases when the individual is a public figure, let's just do the same thing over here and see if we can get away with it."

Is Robert Wagner about to fall victim to a Sheriff's Department version of NFL Hall of Fame voting illusion? Barry has asked on more than one occasion how a retired player isn't eligible one year, and suddenly gets voted in the next year, asking, how did the player's stats suddenly get good enough. Looks like something similar is about to happen out in California to Wagner. Not enough to charge him with Woods' death for decades, and now, suddenly there's enough for a ham sandwich/indictment?

Oh yes...I'm sure Obama sat in the Oval office and directed EVERY move the FBI et al were making. You guy are undoubtedly the best FICTION writers Faux News has ever produced. MORONIC IDIOTS!
