The Campaign For DA

2.01.2018

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Weather guy David Finfrock is going part-time. Now if Delkus would do it. 
  • To work for Kenneth Copeland you must now pledge not to have sex outside of marriage, view porn, drink alcohol, smoke, cuss, or gamble. 
  • Never forget Fox News portrayal of Robert Mueller when he was first appointed as special counsel:
  • Trump is on Twitter this morning and started off by slinging some truth (so long as you don't take into account President Obama drew more viewers in his first State of the Union speech as did the first ones by Bush and Clinton):
  • The Wise County murder trial ended in a guilty verdict and a life sentence. That's what I thought would happen three weeks ago. The original Messenger story from the time of the arrest seemed to indicate the evidence was overwhelming. And considering the fact he had a prior Injury to a Child conviction, he was doomed. (I think he has to serve at least 30 real years, but it's been awhile since I've looked at the specific parole laws for murder. And I don't think this was a capital murder case where there is life without parole requirement if the death penalty is waived.)
  • Today is UIL re-alignment day with the announcement of the new composition of districts coming at 9:00. Bridgeport and Decatur need to be back in the same district.
  • The next government shutdown date is February 8th and neither Republicans or Democrats seem to be thinking about it. 
  • The female mayor of Nashville admits to having an affair with her former security chief. Since 2015, the security chief has earned $119,000 a year in "overtime" and they took nine trips alone together last year costing taxpayers $14,000.
  • There's been lots of talk about the Republican Memo regarding the FBI that Trump is reviewing for release. Now there's an allegation that Trump lapdog Rep. Devin Nunes altered the memo before giving it to Trump.
  • A streaker hit the fairway at the famous 16th hole at the Phoenix Open. (This must have been the Pro-Am yesterday.) There is a video of it which seems "safe for work" and it's one of the longer streaking sessions you'll ever see. 
  • Here's a list of films released 24 years ago just to make you feel old.

"Never forget Fox News portrayal of Robert Mueller when he was first appointed as special counsel:"

Don't think anyone is throwing rocks at Mueller directly (even though they probably could based on who he chose to surround himself with), but the fact that the very agency that is investigating the Russia connection is filled with people who are rabidly anti-Trump. Not what you would call an unbiased investigation by a long shot. That is the problem.

Nashville mayor

It may have been an oversight...but to be clear...she's a DEMOCRAT

SHOCKING!

FauxNews and their weak-minded fans loved Mueller because they were sure he would clear Trump immediately. They forgot he was a man of integrity. Now they have to find a way to smear him before the truth comes out about their messiah.

Anonymous said...

First of all... a security detail is needed for the mayor? Geez, get over yourself.

Second, I don't know or care if she is a Dem or Repub, but she should resign after that 'robot-voice-fake-BS-I'm sorry' apology. She sounds about as sorry as Al Franken did.

Third, she was in a position of authority over the sergeant. He is a victim according to women's standards. He may have been in a position where he felt he had to service her to keep his position. Terrible when a man can’t go to work and not feel coerced to have sex!! And then is compelled to quit his career due to the power she held over him.

Bridgeport and Decatur have been in the same districts for everything but Football for many years. Likely to stay that way.

In football they haven't been in the same district for a while. And will likely never be in the same district again. Enrollments between the two schools continue to grow further apart. For today's realignment the reported enrollments were; Decatur 1054 students, Bridgeport 651 Students. Decatur has 403 more students, almost 62% bigger than Bridgeport.

Long term the economics may see enough of a change to impact the demographics. But I would bet against it.

Nunes lacked credibility, so much so, that he recused himself from the Russia investigation. Now, he's investigating the investigators who are Mueller, a REPUBLICAN, and Wray, a REPUBLICAN THAT TRUMP APPOINTED.

The Russia investigation has already procured four guilty pleas to criminal, felony conduct including the plea of Trump's former campaign manager and national security adviser. Trumpets are just salty that the investigation appears to be going South on them.

Trump smears anyone who is not nice to him; been doing that for years. He wants the investigations into Russia meddling into the 2016 elections to go away! Russia attempted to hack into 26 SOS voter data bases and used social media to spread divisive and fake news to help Trump win.

Why did they want Trump? Read the released testimony released from the Senate investigations about Trumps real estate transactions with Russian oligarchs! Russian meddling had no consequences; Trump didn't follow Congress legislation for sanctions. So if electronic voting machines are hacked into in the midterm elections, responsibility end at the White house.

Cyber war on our democracy by Russia warrants the investigation without interferences. Russia is our enemy, not our friend. Stay away from our voter rolls!

I have this wonderful method for not letting tv and social media personalities not get to me that will blow your mind. I watch something different on TV and I don't follow them on social media. I know that's completely revolutionary and came from some intense outside-the-box thinking, but you would be surprised at how well it works. Give it a try sometime. It will change your life.

Apparently the Left's "narrative of the day" is that Mueller himself is under attack by the memo. This of course disregards the supposed subject of the memo, the FISA warrant issued several months before Mueller was appointed.

Trump's personal behavior is sooooo terrible that Leftists are okay with the idea that the Obama administration's FBI and DOJ used fake information paid for by the Clinton campaign to get a warrant that allowed them to spy on Trump's campaign, prior to the election.

(P.S. For those "Russia owns Trump" fanatics, there has been no credible information revealed by all the investigations to support your pet theory. And if Russia affected the election, they did a piss-poor job of it, since Hillary won the popular vote. So remove your tinfoil hat from your backside and come back to reality.)

If there is "nothing" to the Russia Investigation, why go to great lengths to discredit Mueller? Why not let the investigation play out? If there's "nothing", why lie about hotel room meetings with Russians? Why are there grand jury indictments AND guilty pleas?

"..., why go to great lengths to discredit Mueller?
Your question is a non sequitur. The position taken that "there is 'nothing' to the Russia Investigation" is based on its own data, and is its own topic.

"...why...discredit Mueller?"
Because of the way he has conducted himself and the investigation which he heads up.

"Why not let the investigation play out?"
During the investigation, there has come to light a large body of credible evidence that the investigation is being carried out in an uncredible manner, by multiple uncredible people. Why would you let that play out?

"If there's "nothing", why lie about hotel room meetings with Russians?"
I don't know, good question. Especially since meeting with Russians is, of itself, not illegal. Other good questions along that same line: When interviewed by the FBI, why was Hillary not placed under oath and no record made of that interview? With concrete evidence that multiple high-level operatives of Clinton lied to the FBI, why did they receive a pass? Why are there no charges filed against them?

We are not on the edge of a crisis, we are full-blown in one. The stench from the swamp is overpowering.

First, Why does Hillary Clinton always get brought up...your "whataboutism" does not help your argument.

Second, once again, if there is nothing illegal about the Russia hotel meeting, why lie about it? (also, the whole premise of the meeting was for dirt on Hillary Clinton - thus making it highly questionable)

Third, you completely discount there have already been indictments and guilty pleas.

Fourth, WordKyle is still a tremendous know-it-all douchebag.

WK, you are so funny! If someone was going to steal an election, use data, find out precincts that would be close in 3 swing states, target voters with smear campaign material, hack into some voting machines! No paper ballots, no way to recount. 60,000 votes in three states will do it! No need to go after popular votes! That would not be doing a good job, it would be dumb. About 10 million votes popular votes counting Clinton, libertarian and Green party. Why risk stealing all of those votes!

Proof of Trump connection to Russia is under investigation by Mueller. If the DA is investigating a murder suspect, any proof will come out in trial.

Money laundering may come out explaining why a Russian oligarch paid twice what a Florida Trump property was worth. Trump couldn't get bank loans, filed numerous bankruptcies. He really wasn't a good business man, but has a big trust fund from his father. (Read the testimony)

237 - What I gather from your comments is that you don't have any hard facts upon which to base your opinion. As of right now, you're forced to use speculation and your pre-existing point of view to reach conclusions that you can't support otherwise. That's your right, of course, but it leaves you sort of ignorantly blundering through life.

@3:17 from 1:22 ...

The Dems wrote a classified memo in rebuttal to Nunes' classified memo. Evidently, unless Trump gets cold feet due to the Intelligence Community's opposition to its release, he's planning on declassifying it and releasing it.

Since the House voted to release the Republican memo but not the Democratic memo, the Dems have only one way to get their side of the story out: reading their memo into the Congressional Record from the House floor.

The Constitution provides protection to Members of Congress against prosecution or lawsuits for their utterances from the floor or in committee. So, while the Reps could howl bloody murder that the Dems are releasing classified from the House floor, they couldn't do anything about it, and the Member doing it couldn't be prosecuted.

It's a risky strategy, but if they cleared their memo through the IC first I bet they could survive it.

That's just speculation, usually a sign that you started with a conclusion, then argued based on wishful thinking. All you have to do to refute my comment is to back your opinions with established facts. Fascinate us with some of that sworn testimony you've read.

BTW, that "superior intellectual" comment is hilarious. I'm just a guy who knows how to read. That's your real beef -- that normal, regular, rational people disagree with you.
