The Campaign For DA

3.27.2018

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • I saved another lost puppy dog over the weekend and got it back to its owner. I think I've found my new calling. 
  • The DA candidate who lost the Democrat nomination in the Dallas County primary by a little over 500 votes has now sued alleging "ineligible, illegal, and fraudulent mail-in ballots."  Mail-In ballots seem a little suspect in this day and time. 
  • The pastor of the FBC of Dallas never disappoints.
    He loves "Two Corinthians" and Muslims, too.
  • The incredibly decent former President Jimmy Carter, during his campaign, was scorched for referencing the Bible by saying, "I’ve looked on a lot of women with lust. I’ve committed adultery in my heart many times. This is something that God recognizes I will do and God forgives me for it.” Trump could have an orgy on the White House lawn and Jeffers would praise him. And then he would put it on pay-per-view and call it "tithing".
  • On the other hand, he believes the Ten Commandments should be taught in public schools to end gun violence. "Thou shall not kill" sounds good, but the adultery part doesn't seem to be a priority with Jeffers. #Stormy
  • A Frisco couple was arrested in Massachusetts for possessing this in a Residence Inn. How many of my readers will be outraged?:
  • As a "sports columnist" for the Bridgeport High School paper, I once got called into the principal's office after I quoted one of our high school basketball players, after a loss to Archer City, as saying: "I don't know if they should be ranked, but they sure are going to beat the heck out of Chico." (They were in the same district.) The Chico ISD Superintendent got mad and called our principal who made me write an apology for "insulting" Chico's basketball team. I did it which proved I didn't have a clue about how journalism works. Neither did my "teacher" who never even remotely thought about saying, "No, he will not."
  • When I told my dad about it he didn't really care that I was called onto the carpet. But he said to me, and I remember this like yesterday, "I'm just surprised they actually read what you write all the way over in Chico." 
  • Don't you love how in Texas JP's (and sometimes County Judges) can determine the cause of death without any investigation or autopsy. (I had forgotten that Justice Scalia was declared dead of "natural causes" over the phone by a guy who didn't even go to the scene.)
  • Nice "gangsta rap" reference by an elected official in Colleyville: 
  • The father of Brown of Brown vs. Board of Education has died. You know that little Supreme Court decision that said it was unconstitutional to segregate schools under state and local laws? Shockingly, that decision was handed down in 1954. That wasn't long ago. 
  • The Ticket had a porn star on for two hours yesterday. She was actually incredibly smart and funny, but I couldn't believe what I was listening to in the morning hours.
  • For all you Wise County women out there, call Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, tell him that you had an affair with Trump and he will write you a check for $130,000 no questions asked. 
  • Facebook may be in trouble. A couple of years ago someone on the third floor of the courthouse told me that they had texted someone about buying something and then ads for that specific product started showing up on the Internet. I found that hard to believe. I believe it now.

Frisco couple: I am outraged!

Appears that everything he had would be legal in Texas (and most states). He claims many of the items are non-functioning and used as props in his capacity as a sales rep for military equipment.

But I do like that he throws in cussing along with drugs and rape. I suppose during the high level negotiatin', that will be the sticking point. "Stop all the gosh darn cussing, or the deal is off!"

Attorneys for Noor Salman, the wife of Pulse nightclub killer Omar Mateen, moved to dismiss the charges or declare a mistrial on Sunday night after the prosecution revealed on Saturday that Mateen’s father, Seddique Mateen, worked as an FBI informant from 2005 through the summer of 2016.

According to defense lawyers, Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Sweeney sent them an email on Saturday night that revealed Seddique Mateen was a confidential FBI source and is also under investigation for suspicious money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan, based on documents that were discovered in his home on the day of the nightclub massacre. Noor Salman’s trial had already been in progress for a week when this disclosure was made.

Nothing Lindamood said was controversial to a rational human. An inordinate amount of your time is spent criticizing the theology of others. I would suggest an introspective look at your own theology if you do consider yourself as a Christian. Jeffress is a tool. Stop going down into the muck with him.

uh, you may want to check the code of criminal procedure there Barry. There is a laundry list of when a JP "shall" have a physician conduct an autopsy. The JP or County Judge holds an inquest, much like a Coroner's Inquest in other states. They don't watch five episodes of Bones and start making cause and manner decisions.

Jeffers is a huckster. He is as close to spreading the True Word of Christ as Trump is to setting a healthy loving example of a good marriage. Both are fakes.

1044-
Virtually any time that a negative issue comes up regarding Trump it seems his supporters seek to deflect the issue by raising B. Clinton; H. Clinton or Obama. Bill Clinton did this; Hillary did that; Hillary was crooked; Obama did or did not do that. Was what Bill Clinton do in the WH with ML reprehensible? Yes. And the media was all over him mercilessly (correctly) for it and he ultimately faced impeachment proceedings. Great. We have checked that box. We all agree Clinton was lower than low on that.

Now for Trump. He was recorded on tape about groping women; bragging about because he is a celebrity. He has a slander suit against from a woman whom he allegedly groped and called a liar. He has some 6 or 7 other women who claim that he did the same thing. Now, a porn star has a suit against him for reasons of an affair. His lawyer admits to paying “hush money” to keep the porn star quiet (and we are supposed to believe Trump knew nothing of that???) Another woman — a former Playboy bunny — has come forward about an almost year long affair —and she has filed suit. It's not about the sex, that's between him and his wife, it's about the abuse of money and power - Harvey Weinstein got run out of town on a rail for payoffs and NDAs - why not Trump?

Clinton’s transgressions do not make Trump and his affairs/groping better or worse, more acceptable or unacceptable. Clinton is immaterial to the matter. Trump and his affairs/groping are about the character of the man — for reasons about his actions and moreover paying hush money. Frankly, Trump would be a lot better served to just admit it and get on with things. The vast majority of his base simply does not care (Melania is likely a different issue). A strategy of trying to deflect to Clinton is not going to work for Trump on these issues. Trump has to dance to his own music on this matter — and the press correctly is exposing Trump on these matters.

Idiot doesn't realize that moving appropriated funds from one purpose to another literally requires an act of Congress ... and votes he doesn't have.

Oh, wait, the Mexicans are supposed to pay for the wall. I forgot.

This Stormy Daniels scandal demonstrates why character does matter in politics. The main problem is not sex. It is a certain approach to public life. Trump feels exempt from the normal rules of honesty and decency. He plays close to ethical and legal lines. And he uses his wealth and influence to shield his embarrassing behavior from view — with hush money, nondisclosure agreements, legal threats and lies from the White House briefing room podium. He forces everyone around him to become complicit in his corruption. Members of Congress, White House staffers, party officials, conservative media figures and religious leaders are all expected to be accomplices. And we are left with a vacuum of integrity at the heart of our government.

wordkyle said...

115 - "Clinton is immaterial to the matter." - If only that were the truth. Contrast the coverage of Trump with the relative kid glove treatment used on Clinton. First of all, the media was NOT "all over him mercilessly." None of the mainstream media said the word "liar" or "lies" in their stories about Clinton. The mainstream media supported the narrative that he was being persecuted solely for his sex life, which all agreed was private and between him and his wife.

Clinton's wife is relevant because she nearly became the President of the United States. Her campaign has been linked, credibly, with production of the dossier the FBI and Obama Justice Department used to justify the "Russian collusion" narrative that has hounded Trump since his victory. The potential that Bill Clinton's wife would be the President was likely the reason that her supporters within the federal government have been reported, credibly, to have tanked the investigation of her wrongdoing and cut corners (at the very least) to undermine the Trump administration.

None of which condones the fact that Trump is, in his personal life, probably a scumbag. But first of all, he is, with all his flaws, the only warrior the conservative side really has doing battle for them. Secondly, when the attacks have been as shrill, unrelenting, often based on nothing more than rumors or innuendo, and are committed by people who have shown themselves to be batshit crazy since the election, it's almost a reflex to defend him.

128 - How's that "Russian collusion" thing working out for you? We've been hearing that tripe for eighteen months, and so far not a shred of evidence has been produced that Trump conspired with the Russians to steal the election. Not. A. Shred. Yet leftist nutballs talk as though it's a fact. Again -- based on nothing more than election-loss pique and wishful thinking. When I say your side has lost its mind, I'm not joking and it's not hyperbole.

And the shroud descends over you again, Mr. Hart.

Anonymous said...

Wordkyle, I think the "Clinton is immaterial" was referring to Bill. I don't disagree that Bill was a dirtbag in his treatment of women, just as Trump demonstrably is. Both of them are deeply, deeply flawed men, and Bill absolutely sullied the office in his dealings with Monica, and then lied about it instead of owning up to it. But I think 1115 and 1236 have a point: there's a deeper character flaw in Trump in all his dealings - not just his bimbo eruptions - that is damaging the office, the GOP, and the nation. The man is ethically and intellectually unsuited for the office.

Full disclosure - I didn't vote for Trump, but I didn't vote for Hillary either - I left the presidential box blank and voted downticket. I would have voted for almost any other GOP candidate, but I just couldn't bring myself to support him. He struck me as a crass know-nothing demagogue, and his presidency so far has borne that out (though I will thank him for the tax bill as I will personally benefit mightily on that one).

You are saying that since Dems don't care about the sanctimony of marriage, then it is OK for them to screw around all they want with no repercussions from spouses, press, etc.... But because the Republicans think it is wrong, to sleep around, they are persecuted when caught and should be thrown out of office.

Thought police are on the way.

Rev. Al Sharpton’s half-brother was charged with murder in a Sunday shooting death in Alabama after participating in Saturday’s anti-gun “March For Our Lives,” according to a report.

Kenneth Glasgow, 52, was arrested along with another man after Breunia Jennings, 23, was shot in the head in Dothan, Ala. Authorities said Glasgow, an ex-convict, was the driver of the car linked to Jennings death. The passenger of the car Jamie Townes, 26, was also arrested and is reportedly the alleged shooter, the Dothan Eagle reported.

225 - "ethically and intellectually unsuited for the office" - You may be right. On the other hand, look at the "ethics" of some of the most popular past Presidents that we only learned after the fact. (I'm not sure I agree with your idea that Trump has a "deeper character flaw" than Bill Clinton. BC had almost criminal tendencies. Much of Trump's behavior could be that he's an indulged rich kid grown into an indulged billionaire.) Trump wasn't my first, second, or third choice for President either, but he's what our side got. As I've pointed out before, he had a pretty successful first year.

If people attacked only the proven charges against him, then political conversations would be much shorter and those on the Left would still be considered normal people.

It’s possible that more than one person thinks you’re a liar, Wordkyle. Although I do appreciate living rent free in your head.

In any event, I don’t believe 1:28 said anything about collusion, and you can’t address their point head on, which is telling. But a day without Wordkyle’s whataboutism would be a sad day indeed.

If you truly believe the press/media was mercilessly all over Clinton, I’m thinking you have some memory issues. The press/media reported on Clinton’s lies as much as it reported on the women who accused him of rape — practically not at all.

I agree that Bill/Hillary/Obama have nothing to do with Trump’s likely infidelity, and it would be better for Trump to own up to his unfaithfulness. However, the press/media has conditioned the public to its skewed and biased reporting (or non-reporting) that Trump supporters will make up any reason (whether related to Bill, Hillary, or Obama or otherwise) to excuse Trump’s behavior. Welcome to the world that such a press/media has created.
