The Campaign For DA

3.19.2018

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Another bomb went off in Austin.  That's number four.
  • This is the first time since 1980 that the state of Texas has had two teams in the Sweet 16. Tech and Aggie are in. 
  • Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was fired late Friday night. To make matters worse, McCabe learned about it 9 minutes before the media did. He was a few days short of getting his pension. 
  • And Trump had this planned. Look what he said in December. 
  •  But McCabe, like any smart person, wrote memos after every time he met with Trump. Now he has turned them over to Mueller. And Trump doesn't understand how memos to the file work. I do that maybe 50 times every single day.
  • This is a screenshot from Fox News that is not photoshopped. Idiocracy.
  • I find this story weird. Deputy Manosuhagian, who was head of K-9 department for the Wise County Sheriff's office, is leaving to go to Lake Worth. (Stolen from the Messenger.)
  • Mrs. LL and I went to a place I visited almost 30 years ago: A little known cemetery in Wise County, East Mound, where most of the headstones, old and aging, tell you the birth of that person was in the 1800s.
  • This place in Fort Worth was demolished on Sunday. It used to be a hipster place. And quite the history: "On Nov. 15, 1963, a week before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Casa del Sol also took a two-minute phone call from Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby, according to the Warren Commission report." It was in the medical district south of 30.
  • For the first time ever, a sixteen seed beat a number one seed. That was UMBC (Google it). Look what happened to them earlier in the year.
  • Kids, this is what is called "consciousness of guilt". He is scared. He's in full scale panic mode.
  • "Hundreds of volunteers helped create a realistic mass casualty drill in Downtown Dallas Sunday morning. Violence wasn’t the focus of the training, instead the exercise focused on how first responders react to injuries and death." Uh, this was weird.
  • That's her?
  • I saw either and oil rig or natural gas rig off 287 this morning. It's been a few years since one has appeared on the horizon.

I don’t understand why you think it is weird for first responders to practice drills. Not all emergencies are due to violence. Perhaps they were practicing for weather related accidents. Tornado season is approaching quickly in North Texas.

Haha! Glad to hear that FISA court is being used against a government official.

McCabe could make up whatever he wants and write it in a memo, doesn't make it true!! Y'all get excited over silly stuff. Trump only met him briefly a few times.

The house party enthusiasts seem more coherent than most Fox News folks these days. I turned to Fox this weekend (MSNBC was covering old crime, CNN the Kennedys) and witnessed tow consecutive hosts center their shows on.... Hillary Clinton, without nary a mention of Trump.

And speaking of that... Why is anyone so focused on Trump, anyway? The media certainly focuses on him more than Clinton and way more than Dukakis. Is Mike Dukakis doing anything corrupt lately? Why all the focus on Trump?

McCabe firing - At the recommendation of the FBI's own ethics office, so you know that a) What he did is very egregious, and b) The firing was not at the whim of Donald Trump. As far as "losing his pension"? What he lost was early retirement benefits, or the ability to retire at age 50 rather than at 57. McCabe will lose some money, but nothing like what's being represented, certainly not his entire pension.

"consciousness of guilt" - You could be right, but so far the documented evidence supports everything Trump said in his tweet. The original accusation, "Trump colluded with Russians to win the election," is not even being discussed any more. There's been more evidence of Democrat/Clinton/Obama collusion than anything else.

Remember your history, Nixon did not directly plan and approve the Watergate break-in. He was guilty of plotting to cover it up, lying, and obstructing justice. Trump may not have directly planned a collusion with the Russians but if Muller can prove he acted to cover it up, took steps to suppress evidence and lied (an every day occurance) then bingo impeachment charges.

Gore issues new climate warning: Bizarre weather such as “flying rivers” and “rain bombs” are just some of the recent effects of climate change, warned former US vice-president Al Gore at the Global Education and Skills Forum (GESF) in Dubai on Sunday...global weather is becoming “extreme” and “disruptive”, mainly because of global warming, Gore explained.

It's about time Uncle Al checks into the Whispering Pines Old Folks Home. He took a private jet to Dubai. You can afford to do that when you make hundreds of millions on a lie.

WASHINGTON — A D.C. councilmember apologized Sunday night for posting a video on Facebook Friday that seemed to embrace an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that a wealthy Jewish family is controlling the weather.

McCabe was a frequent target of harsh criticism from President Trump, and though his firing was recommended through internal FBI channels, Trump's public ire towards McCabe has tainted his dismissal with a whiff of impropriety.

Because he and his entire Russian puppet cabal are going down. This is going to end up way bigger than Watergate. Try to keep up and don't listen to Drumpf or anyone else spouting denials and deflections, it's all smoke and mirrors and Barry is right about Drumpf: he does protest way more than an innocent man would.

WK, Trump tweeted for McCabe firing and loss of pension and Sessions fearing being fired himself let McCabe die so he could live. Now Trump is going after Mueller, having his attorney say it is time to end the investigation. Why did Trump want Comey and McCabe fired; they refused to be loyal to Trump!

If Trump is innocent, he needs to act like it by allowing the investigation to go forward.

The apartments and hallways at Westchester House were already seedy by the year of nineteen hundred and seventy (1970). that's less than 20 years after the Westchester opened.

It would be really nice if the media could have allowed Trump a year to just be the President and maybe even have supported him a bit. But, even if that had been the case, the guy is a Drama Queen and he's horribly insecure. He'd have created controversy where none existed. So, we're all left with what we have: on average, three "new" stories a day bashing the guy, his tweets, or someone on his staff, and three tweets from him explaining his side. What a way to run a railroad.

wordkyle said...

1210 - You'll need to slow it down a bit, hoss. You skipped over the vital bit of information, that the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility recommended McCabe's firing. Forget Trump's positive attitude toward firing McCabe; it was McCabe's own organization that recommended his firing, based on the investigation by the DOJ's Inspector General.

This thing with Mueller is getting to be as poignantly retarded as having a fine quail dog that can't seem to fathom that it's master wants quail-
Not flushing rabbits out of the briars.
Not jumping into the air trying to snatch dragonflies.
Not running down the beach after killdeers.
We set him loose to point Collusion.
Running around in circles chasing his own tail is not gaining the admiration of his masters.
There is no collusion- other criminal goings on- yes- but it is government officials so there is going to be that.
Now we have some twenty something or the other, pink haired, pole smoker - who the libs will now point to and hold up to be Putin's pet demon du joir.- and responsible for the wobbly one to have lost the election. Pity- gosh darn it - that the beloved Crackbook might be going South off the reservation like My Space over it.
Entertaining to say the least.

Skippy, whenever you copy a memo to file, it doesn't become government property. When you are a government employee, you aren't allowed to leak it to your friends. That's what Comey did and should be put in jail for it.

Sam, I think I get what you're trying to say @ 3:04, but seriously, you're not as poignant or clever as you think. So it just kind of came out sounding incoherent.

Ok 11:19 you disgusting, rightest, Fox news zombie fool. Collusion = a secret agreement between 2 people or groups in order to defraud others, obtain something illegally or gain unfair advantage through conspiracy. Can I prove the Trump campaign plotted with the Russians to illegally influence the Presidential election . No of course not though anyone with an open mind or a mind at all should admit there is circumstantial evidence . The investigation will determine this and as Americans we all should all be concerned if a foreign government tried to illegally affect our election.

"as Americans we all should all be concerned if a foreign government tried to illegally affect our election." - "Illegally" being the operative term. It's naive to think that every nation doesn't try to affect elections in other nations. Look at how hard the Obama administration tried to defeat Netanyahu in Israel.

As Americans we should also all be concerned if groups within our own government tried to illegally affect our election. McCabe, whose wife received campaign money to the tune of half a million dollars from Clinton associates, was fired partly for lying about leaking stories to hurt Trump's administration. The wife of Bruce Ohr, a senior DOJ official, received money from Fusion GPS specifically to investigate Trump. FBI malfeasance has been copiously documented.

If the second matter above bends the investigation of the first matter above, then shouldn't it take priority? Shouldn't we insist that both matters of such vital importance be fairly investigated?

Have you even bothered asking yourself some important questions?

1) If it's so damned obvious how come super=cop Mueller and a team of 17 super-lawyers can't seem to find anything on a guy who...

2) is such an idiot that he doesn't understand anything about anything but...

3) Was able to mastermind a collusion plot with Russia so effectively that aforementioned supercop and his "A" team cant find any evidence?

You are a delusional fool. Give it up. This is such rank partisanship that you show your lack of intelligence by saying it is something else.

Better yet, just go fuck yourself. You ain't helping nothing at this point. You're just trying to break as much shit as possible to hide what a fool you turned out to be.

Let me just repeat myself here. Go fuck yourself.

So I got some questions for all you idiots who think Trump "colluded" with the "Russians" to steal the election. How come you're pissed that he did that? (If, of course, he did). How come you're not pissed that 8 years of Barack Obama allowed the Russians to do that? How come, now that Trump is calling out FBI higher ups under whose watch this occurred, Trump is your bogeyman? What the hell were Jim Comey, Rod Rosenstein, Peter Strohk, and Lisa Page, et al doing during this time? Wasn't it their job NOT TO LET THAT HAPPEN?

Or...maybe it never did. And the ONLY thing that happened was Democratic malfeasance and this whole charade is a ruse to cover that up. That's seems so much more likely than Donald Trump being some kind of mastermind,

Trust me, he's not. And it's embarrassing to share a country with a bunch of drama queens who believe he is capable of being one

Anonymous said...

WK, the DOJ investigation has not been released; Trump pressured Sessions to fire McCabe, a witness supporting Comey. Trump tainted the firing by tweeting accusations and pressuring Sessions. Let the process work, if you are innocent.

Trump hired an attorney who alleges a conspiracy theory that the FBI and DOJ was framing him; so I guess you will be arguing that Trump was their target using big words we have to look up in Webster's dictionary! All the deep state crap started by Steve Bannon is for Trumps base!

wordkyle said...

712 - I'm sorry, but you seem to miss the point which I've made repeatedly. The process that resulted in McCabe's dismissal involved career Justice Department and FBI officials. The charges against McCabe arose out of the Justice Department Office of Inspector General investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation. The head of the IG office is an Obama appointee. The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility made the recommendation to fire McCabe.

Trump applauded the firing because he felt McCabe, along with his wife, worked against him. But Trump was at the end of the line of people who felt McCabe should be fired.

Gary Tidmore said...

I don't know why 1) you would question Session's firing of McCabe-because it was based on the recommendation of FBI personnel as I understand it, or 2) Trump's pointing out that McCabe was just racing the clock. Frankly, he and Comey should have been fired within days of Trumps election if for nothing else -- their incompetence in handling the Hillary email scandal.
