Mueller has appointed "all-stars" to prosecute Trump

According to Vox, the President may have a problem.  When I read this, it is like they are only interesting in winning, not in pursuing justice.

Do these people really believe that Trump did anything of any consequence?  The only thing that I can see is that he challenged the power structure.  It is this same overpowering power structure that is now turning on him.

How can a billionaire be at a disadvantage?  If you are going up against the government, with its virtual unlimited resources, it doesn't matter who you are.

Here's the  government being used to subvert the will of the people.  Plain and simple.  Whenever you vote the wrong way, the government is there to set you straight.

Believe me, this looks like Goliath setting out for David.  Whether or not Trump can be David, and kick Goliath's ass--- well, he's done so this far.

Update (s) 12 :00 :

Yes, you can see this one coming a mile away.  Once you accept a false premise, then here comes the next one.  The false premise here is that they were going to investigate "collusion".  Well, by that time, they already had done that out the wazoo.  What they really want was to go after the President on a process crime.  Yeah, and they don't even have that.

I'm sorry, but too many people on the GOP side are taking this much too lightly.  On the other side, you've got Mueller appointing all-star legal beagles.  You are going to wake up one day, and Hitler will have you backed up against the sea.  Will you have time to regroup?  Maybe not.

They tried to rig an election, and failed.  However, it may be easier to rig a trial.  Just sayin'.



Who are they trying to convince?

This anti-Trump screed is pretty much the normal thing these days.  Checking out the comments shows that it has the reverse intention of the author--- it convinced nobody.

So, who are they writing for?  People who have already made their minds up about Trump?  Nobody is going to change their minds based upon reading something like this.

You love him or you hate him.  There doesn't appear to be much of a middle ground.

Wendy Davis: Surgically Constructed “Human Barbie Doll”? ...updated

The Real Wendy Davis

Most people — at least those without a plastic surgeon on retainer — do not become more good looking as they age from their late 20s to their early 50s.
comment:

Yeah, the pictures tell the story.  She went from very, very average to good looking as she got older.  Something doesn't compute.

original post on 7.2.13, Updated on 6.6.17:

The real Human Barbie commented upon this post.  Thought that was worth a repost.

17:10:

This looks a little like the Lady Gaga look in the music video Bad Romance.  Did Lady Gaga take the look from Human Barbie, or did Human Barbie take the look from Lady Gaga?

Only the hairdresser knows for sure.  ( you may not recognize that old line. )


Che, Alexandria, and the Radical Left - by Robert Ringer

Che, Alexandria, and the Radical Left - by Robert Ringer: It’s only fitting that Wednesday, the day of the Alexandria shooting rampage by a Radical Left extremist, was the 89th birthday of mass murderer Che Guevera. Che has long been a hero to the Radical Left, especially those lost souls who occupy — literally — our college campuses. To them, the American flag represents evil, …

Requiem to the dinosaurs Updated..6.16.17

Today is Columbus Day, sort of.  It is October 11th and a Monday,
so it is more convenient to have a 3 day weekend, and set the
"holiday" on the wrong day.  Columbus Day is the 12th of October.
In case anyone bothered to notice.  Note that I used scare quotes
on the word holiday because Columbus Day is not exactly a holiday
in some quarters these days.

Tomorrow is the real Columbus Day, but does anyone remember what
happened 10 years ago?  The USS Cole was attacked and nearly sunk
on that day by terrorists affiliated with Al Qaeda.  It was probably
no accident that the terrorists chose this date.  In their worldview, that
day was the day that Western Civilization was on the ropes and managed
to get off the ropes.  Not only that, Columbus Day was the day that
Western Civilization began its ascent to dominance.  And their world
began its own descent into near irrelevance.

Columbus Day amongst our multiculturalist liberals is also a dark day,
a day that the noble savages had their paradise taken away from them.
To them, it is an ignoble celebration of American triumphalism.  It
was the beginning of the destruction of the environment.  It meant
slavery, colononialism, and world subjection to Western Civilization.
To them celebrating Columbus Day is approval of racism, bigotry, and
chauvinism.

But that almost didn't happen.  The Vikings were in the New World.
Some Polynesians got pretty close.  In Mining the Sky, John S. Lewis points
out a that not long before Columbus set sail in 1492, the Chinese explorers
were on the move.  But the Chinese suddenly stopped their explorations, and
Columbus got his chance.  But Columbus was a failure.  He wasn't trying
to find the New World, he was just looking for a shortcut to China.  If
you look at it that way, Columbus just got lucky.  What's so triumphant
about that?

Was there anything good about the discovery of the New World?  Or is it
bad because of who did it?  Or is it bad because of why it was done?

If you honestly look at it at all angles, you have to believe it is more
good in it than bad.  And therefore, it is worth celebrating.  The New World
wasn't a Paradise.  The Chinese are more triumphalist than Western Europe
ever thought about being.  Finally, if Columbus didn't discover the New
World, Islam would have conquered Western Europe.  Does anyone believe
that Western Civilization is really worse than the rest?  Only those who
are just as triumphalist themselves would have such a notion.

Rather than being triumphalist, why not celebrate the progress that was
achieved?  But there are those who don't believe that there has been any
progress.  Those would be the radical environmentalists amongst others.
They would have us living like the horse cultures of the American plains.
In harmony with nature.  Except the horses didn't arrive until the Spanish
arrived.  And the noble savages weren't so noble as we are led to believe.

Even if you don't think it is progress, then what about just staying alive?
If we try to go back to the past, a lot of people would have to die.  The
world just won't support this many people unless we have the technology.
If the technology is bad, and is rejected, the world will sink into a new
dark age.  But would there be a new Renaisance?  We may not get the chance.
This is a theme of Tsiolkovsky's Imperative.  We must go forward with space
exploration.  The alternative that awaits us could be the fate of the
dinosaurs.  An asteroidal collision wouldn't just be the end of Western
Civilization, it could be the end of life on this planet.

A song popped up in my head, the theme from MASH.  It is called Suicide is Painless.

I correlated this with Western Civilization.  Western Civ seems to be committing suicide
on a large scale.  Maybe even a song like this is a invitation to suicide as some sort of
solution for the trials of life.

If Western Civ is like the dinosaurs, and on the way out, perhaps it should be retitled to
a Requiem for Western Civilization, with this song as its theme song.

Betsy's Page: Cruising the Web

Betsy's Page: Cruising the Web: We're all feeling a sense of horrified unity after the shooting at the Republican baseball team yesterday, I'm struck by how lucky ...



comment:



Posts like this seem reasonable to certain people, not to me.  It seems a bit wishy-washy.  If the left is going to encourage political violence, and they have, then they MUST be held responsible for it.  Maxine Watters has said some pretty inflammatory things in the past.  Why not censure her?  The running mate for Hillary has said that they should take to the streets.  Okay, if your potential veep is saying that kind of thing, then why not censure him for it?



Then you have the Seth Rich murder.  Can anyone at least connect the dots that we have a serious problem with the Democrat Party?  At least consider the possibility that political violence is at least encouraged, and that includes MURDER.



Soft pedaling this is not the ticket.

Thank You, Gentleman Jim - by Robert Ringer

Thank You, Gentleman Jim - by Robert Ringer: The most overarching picture of last week’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearings is that Gentleman Jim Comey — the former FBI chief — came across as just another disgruntled ex-employee seeking revenge. He need not worry, however, because he’s a shoo-in for a multimillion dollar book deal and many high-paid speeches for years to come — …



comment:



Ringer is no never-Trumper, but his support of Trump has boundaries.  Indeed, some of this piece seems directed at a yearning for Pence in the White House.  Sorry, I cannot agree.  If you let Pence happen by way of impeachment and removal from office, Pence will be stained as well.  Pence needs to get there by way of an election in his own right.  Not by this way that seems to be underway now.


Don't know what to say about this

There is an explosion of rhetoric on the conservative side after this latest shooting news.  What is the most important thing to remember about it?

Not gun control, that is for sure.  If your political opponent starts shooting at you, you don't unilaterally disarm.  That would make no sense at all.

It seems that many on the left are disavowing this violence, while at the same time, they seem to be encouraging it.  Perhaps they should decide on how it really is, and then go with that, hmmm?  After saying the GOP is evil after all these years, then why should any of them be surprised when some unhinged nut starts shooting?

But if they want to shoot, let 'em shoot.  As long as those being shot at are willing to support the rule of law, the truth, and Western Civilization, then shoot back!

More about Seth Rich murder case

Saw this on Free Republic.

It gets more and more strange the more you hear about it.  Video cams covered the intersection in which it happened, but no video exists?




Update (s), 19:10 :

Again, we see how the left goes bonkers over gun violence when it suits them, and stone cold quiet  when it doesn't.  A shooting in DC today by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter.



Corruption

Can Western Civilization escape from it?

Perhaps I am na├»ve.  I think that people have this appetite for truth.  Give people the truth, and they have the chance to do the right thing.  Hide the truth well enough, and there may not be a chance.

So what is truth?  Clearly, anything that is said without the intention to gain from it, and with the possibility of losing something from having said it, cannot be far from it.

Lies have the property of a gain attached to it.  A person lies in order to gain something.

Corruption cannot exist in the sanitizing atmosphere of truth.


Does the truth matter anymore? updated 6.14.17

It looks to me like it doesn't.  If the truth mattered, people would want to know about Muslim Brotherhood connections in Hillary land.  If the truth mattered, they would be able to discern that this so-called rule about not criticizing Gold Star parents is completely bogus.

But according to the news media, provided that you can believe their reporting, people have strangely decided that this information about the Muslim Brotherhood doesn't matter.

I don't know if it is the propaganda that is producing this result or not.  Are the people just too lazy and gullible to see through this for what it is?  Or is it the kabuki theater effect?

Kabuki theater is a drama that always leads to a predetermined outcome, but that outcome is supposedly in doubt when it never is.  Trump is supposed to be a good boy and fall on his sword because he is the bad guy, and the good guys always win.  Only the GOP can be evil.  Dems are always the good guys.  It's the GOP who insist on being labelled the bad guys, so they always lose.

Trump hit a soft spot with the Dems/Rino globalists clique ( They desperately need him to shut up.  He is upsetting the kabuki theater plot.)  For the GOP's part, they should back Trump because he raised a vital issue- they won't because that would mean that they are serious about winning, which they are not.  For if we cannot be courageous enough to ask about these connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, we risk our future.  This is no small question.  It is VITAL to continue talking about it.  To not raise it means that we are a non-serious people.

The media is framing this in a way that is not correct.  Basically, they are pulling the wool over the eyes of the public.


[ after a pause of several hours while I was working...]

There sure are some nervous nellies in the GOP camp.  The key to this story is that they think they can hound Trump out of this race:

Still, some Republicans are quietly considering the arcane mechanics of what would happen to the party's ticket if Trump was to leave the presidential race.
Seriously, why would he consider leaving the race?  Are they going to try to talk him into leaving?

The group of GOP heavyweights hopes to enlist the help of Trump's children - who comprise much of his innermost circle of influential advisers - to aid in the attempt to rescue his candidacy

This is nothing but a gutless bunch of wimps in a panic.  They are scared shitless of the media and the Democrats.  This Gold Star family flap is an opportunity, not something to get scared of.  If they are going to be this scared of the Democrats, they may as well pack it all in.  They will never win again.


original post, 8.3.16, Updated, 6.14.17 , 11:00   :  


Couldn't help but notice how little things change.  You could substitute the current "investigation" of Trump for the Gold Star family flap last year.  Same tune, different verse.  There's no truth in it.  The truth is not in these people.

But they'll say that Trump lies.  Whatever Trump says is nothing compared with what these dudes are doing.  The attempt to run him out of office is not justice.  It is a betrayal of justice.



Wow. Let's start eating "grub" steak

Insects are said to be much more efficient at turning feed into "meat".

Man, let's have some of that good old fashioned efficiency.

Can't wait for my grub steak. /sarc

Of course, the Al Gores of the world will still fly in their big planes, live in their huge mansions, and eat their "real" steaks.

That's cuz they're different.



Why would a murder investigation be halted in DC?

In order to answer that question, you may need to consult with some basic civics.  Washington DC is actually under the jurisdiction of the Congress.  Congress in turn, has delegated governance to the locals.  However, it is still under jurisdiction of Congress.

So, that raises some interesting questions.  For example, why would the murder of Seth Rich not be fully investigated?  Why would the investigation be halted?  How can this be explained?

This may strike some people as tin foil hat kind of stuff, but I don't care.  Just open your eyes a bit, and see for yourself.  Poll after poll says that there's something wrong with the track the country is on, and why not look at something like this?  Could there actually be a conspiracy to silence any attempt to get to the bottom of this murder?  Why would Congress not intervene if there was something fishy going on in their own town?  After all, it is Congress' town.  The US Constitution has empowered Congress to run it.  If something is wrong, why don't they clean it up?

Now ask yourself this question:  if they won't clean it up, is it perhaps because it would not serve their interests to do so?  Is there any rule of law in Washington DC?

To put this another way, we could have an organized crime mentality in DC.  If someone steps out of line, they will be whacked.  Then to explain why this murder isn't being investigated, one has to accept the possibility that this situation is now the reality in Washington DC.  If so, the rest of the country has got to clean it up, because they won't, or can't.

A case that can "blow up" the Deep State

Says the guy in this video.

He goes through some connections here that are shocking, or maybe not so shocking if you are cynical enough.

There's enough here to convince people that this business about going after Trump is really a diversion from the real story.  A political hit job.

Try to ignore some of the irrelevant stuff.  The key point is Wasserman-Schultz and who stopped the DC investigation into the murder of Seth Rich- her brother, who was in a position to do that.  Somebody had to do that because that is what happened.   There was a murder and the investigation was stopped.  Why??????

There are a lot of "convenient" connections here.  Rich was a Sanders supporter, and would have a reason to be disgruntled about Hillary stealing the nomination from Bernie.  Wasserman-Schultz was head of DNC when this was going on.  She resigned presumably because of the WikiLeaks "revelations" but everybody in the know already knew that the nomination was rigged in Hillary's favor.  She left because it was too much attention being focused on her and this murder.

Meanwhile, the dog keeps chasing his tail, and doesn't bark.  People, you need to wake up.  The Deep State is attempting a coup de tat.



Update (s):  19:21 :

Sean Hannity got in on this, but has since backed off.  Here's the thing:  you have to go after the facts, and what are those?

I have been looking on YouTube.  It doesn't look like a good place to look, because people are trying to hype their information.  So, information may be hard to come by.

One thing that did turn up was that there were a lot of cameras in the neighborhood where Seth Rich was shot.  Now, I remember somewhere that videos existed of the murderer(s).  Maybe they do, maybe they don't.  But it is plausible that some videos may be out there.  Also, that the perps had to go a certain way, because there were people in the other possible ways out of the neighborhood that didn't see the perps.  So, they kinda to know where to look for videos.

There's plenty to be suspicious about with respect to this case.  People who try to downplay it are a bit suspicious themselves as far as I am concerned.  Conspiracy theorizing?  What do you call what is happening to Trump?  There is actually a crime here, but after months of looking, nobody has a crime in the Russian thing.  Which one should get the attention based upon the actual evidence presented thus far?




Senate seeks Comey info said to be given to Mueller

Senate seeks meeting with Mueller to get info that Comey said he gave to Mueller.

What happens if Mueller says he hasn't got anything?  Maybe the dog we weed on it.



Fire Mueller?

The thing that caused me to change direction a bit on this blog, was the hiring of Mueller in the first place.  I had to disengage with the media a bit, because it was affecting me to the point that I wanted a neck between my hands.  Not good.

So, after nearly a month with this clown in the office, there is some talking of removing him.

Powerline addresses this with a series of posts, in which I am now reading.  He starts off by saying no, don't fire him.  He says it will stir up another hornet's nest.  At this point in time, personally I don't give a hoop in Hades if it did.  But I have no say in the matter.  I wish Trump would, if for no other reason than to stir up the poop.  Let them have their best shot.  I don't think they can pull it off anyway.

In his second post in the series, he offers that firing Mueller might hand the 2018 election to the Democrats.  Maybe.  At this point, I don't friggin' care.  At this point, I want an all-out confrontation with these people.  But of course, that is not likely.  The author cannot state any good reason for having Mueller stay on, so why keep him?  Because of the fear of an election outcome?  The entire point for having Mueller there is to harm Trump anyway.  Why not just get rid of the clown?

The most recent of the series lays out some legal arguments for firing Mueller.  Oh, well.  The only legal reason Trump needs is that he doesn't like him and therefore, he should go.

Does Trump want to be POTUS or not?  Then act like one.



Did Comey lie to Congress?

It appears that he did, according to a piece by Powerline blog and cited by Rush Limbaugh.

To put it briefly, Comey claimed in sworn testimony before Congress that he didn't make memos in other administrations like he did against Trump.  He made extensive notes of meetings with POTUS George W. Bush.


Now…It’s Trump Vs. Comey – Lunch Alert!

Now…It’s Trump Vs. Comey – Lunch Alert!



Morris says in such a confrontation, Trump holds the cards.



I guess we'll see.

You never know who you can meet out there...Updated 6.12.17

There was an interesting conversation today on the job.  A man who works in the power plant business was complaining about the current president.  He was talking about the shut down of the coal fired plants his employer owns.  They can clean up the plants, he says, but other options are cheaper.

He surprised me a bit when he said that the emissions coming out of the coal fired plant are cleaner than the air that goes into it.  Even with the carbon dioxide produced by the combustion of coal.  They capture it and make useful products out of it.

Nope, the big problem now is with the ash.  So, I mentioned Thorium.  He never heard of it.  I told him what I found out about Thorium- that the coal ash has more energy potential in it than the coal it came from.  That seemed to get his attention.

I don't know if he follows up on what I told him, but I suppose it is one way to spread the word about Thorium.

Update:

He might have been talking about this, too.  It sounds a lot like the same story he was telling me.  Unfortunately, I don't recall the specifics.

"Clean coal" is definitely possible, but not if the environmentalists run the show.

originally posted on 7.6.16updated 6.12.17 :  

Funny how this is playing out.  Just like I told the guy.  That there is more energy potential in the Thorium than in the coal.  But not only the Thorium, but wherever you find Thorium, you also find rare earths.  It so happens that there is now an effort to mine coal ash for rare earths.



Comey testimony Dissected

Sharyl Attkisson does the honors.

She says that Comey's reason for the leak of the memo did not make sense.

If there were tapes, as Comey said, then the tapes would corroborate his position better than his memo.  Then, why leak the memo?



Comey - Mueller Deep State Tag Team

Now that Russian "collusion" is discredited, shut down the Special Counsel



It is already ranging past its mandate.  No 'need' for it anymore.




Updated on 6.12.17: Review--The Liberty Amendments: Amend the Constitution--to Save It


Note:  The system in DC is broken.  Perhaps it is time to consider changing the system to something else.  This does not have to be a partisan effort.  It seems that the Dems have a motive to get behind it too.

original post ( 8.13.13 )follows below:

Breitbart  via Instapundit

quote:
Levin's The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic, released Aug. 12, is an ambitious plan to save the American political experiment from the encroachments of big government in Washington, D.C.

comment:

Levin calls for a constitutional convention.  I agree.  In fact, I did this myself on this here blog.  Glad that he agrees.  Maybe Limbaugh will start pushing it.

Update:

A discussion of the possible downside of a "con-con"---- a runaway convention.

Update 5.5.17:

Texas become 11th state to call for an Article V convention of states.  Only 11?

Update 6.12.17 :

News.  The number is now 12.


Is it possible that a lot of what we all talk about is driven by the news?  What I mean is that what may be preferable is to do something to control the media.  Some may cite first amendment concerns, but this largely seems overblown to me.  The media is way the hell out of control, and tries to drive everything in a certain direction.  If they are going to do this, then the media should not be owned by a publicly traded corporation, either directly held, or indirectly held.
