Don @ 12:28 pm on a rainy afternoon.

I am not following the Jussie story, save to say that when you get the guy who arranged the famous beer summit (Nine finger Rahm, Obama’s Chief of Staff) turned against you, well...I figured it is popcorn time. I knew winds of change were a blowing when Charles Barclay was laughing his gluteus maximus off on Sports Center. “Dude, if you are going to do a crime, don’t write a check.” When you loose Charles Barley and Dead Fish Rahm and Al Sharpton, you know things aren’t going by the script. :). And his lawyer got arrested on 16 counts. Oh my.

Emery sure like to prove himself the idiot.
The crack fake news dude, the embarrassment of KVMR, should KNOW
that the Trump plan for health care coverage isn't released.
Yet demand it get posted.. News flash Emery,, it's not out.

But don't let me stop your from making an ass out of yourself.

What is your source Gregory? All you included was the text.

Gosh and golly Bill I changed my mind because Walt is so charming and intelligent.

Paul Emery

OK The hill has the numbers but it says nothing about how they break down pro or con. You guys are contending they were all fake. What is your criteria for fake news? Does it include informational news about the investigation?

Don Bessee

Ignore the grossly discredited po' ol' fakenewsman, he wasted 2 years with his drivel, clearly no self awareness of how badly it went for them.

It's not over yet!!!

Mueller grand jury 'continuing robustly,' prosecutor says

"During a brief open hearing Wednesday, the chief judge of the U.S. District Court, Beryl Howell, pressed Goodhand to say if the grand jury Mueller had been using in the case remained active.

“It is continuing,” the prosecutor replied. “It’s continuing robustly.”

The fact the grand jury is continuing its work adds a new wrinkle to the Mueller probe, which Attorney General William Barr announced on Friday was finished."

Oh, I forgot... the district wide tally was 31% Dem, 69% GOP, so it's just as well that there isn't a DEM on the final ballot.

punchy

The link to the source I quoted was at the link provided by 'scenes' (thanks, Scenes) immediately following your tantrum. You go find it yourself.

To you I reiterate: f' you, punch. You're the local fakenewsman. Too dumb to have a conversation with, unable to rub two facts together to get a third.

scenes

GeorgeR: "I thought that the journalistic profession was the demonstrated refuge of mostly ass-kissing ignorameouses, my opinion of the commentariat and the news media was pretty low. I was totally off base, because it wasn’t anywhere near low enough."

It seems to me that part of this is the result of the first truly internet election. The 'news' business not only now allows people to write (and more importantly, publish) before they think, but more heavily encourages 'gotcha' and scurrilous headlines. This last is what pays the bill in the current deathmatch going on in media. Although no one should be surprised, the real value is in seeing just how biased major league media can be.

I wonder if someone has constructed an AI that writes stories for the Daily Beast like they have for sports writing. No 'reporters' needed. Pretty soon you'll have a Google AI censoring a conservative AI while everyone sits back and gets rich from selling ads. All that is still needed is an AI to read the stories and wave it's little Tyrannosaurus arms in rage at Trump or Emmanuel Goldstein.

Since the news guys aren't any smarter than anyone else, they get caught up in a feedback loop of crazy since all they read (and copy) what is basically a giant Weekly World News sans Bat Boy.

“Lock her up!” Oh, me so bad. I forgot for a moment where I got my shoes. I got my shoes planted right here in Clinton County.

Oh, I don’t rule Hillary out for a second. Told everybody in 2016 that the Clinton Political Complex is bigger than any political party with its tentacles reaching into the centers of power on these shores and beyond. Kings bow and kiss her ring. Reaches all the way into billionaire’s wallets, if you catch my drift. You certainly don’t want to cross her.

No obstruction to be found. Yet Proggys still believe the peepee papers. Ask Swalwell. Even today he says they are fully factual.

Don Bessee

Talk about a pathetic apology tour -

Author Christina Hoff Sommers debunked the idea as “feminist fiction” in her book Who Stole Feminism. Sommers wrote:

The ‘rule of thumb’, however, turns out to be an excellent example of what may be called a feminist fiction. Is is not to be found in William Blackstone’s treatise on English common law. On the contrary, British law since the 1700s and our American laws predating the Revolution prohibit wife beating, though there have been periods and places in which the prohibition was only indifferently enforced. That the phrase did not even originate in legal practice could have been ascertained by any fact-checker who took the trouble to look it up in the Oxford English Dictionary, which notes that the term has been used metaphorically for at least three hundred years to refer to any method of measurement or technique of estimation derived from experience rather than science.

Ah, Christina Hoff Summers. Her book “The War on Boys” was written maybe 12 years ago and applies oday. Having children changes things. You are aware that she toured with Milo and Louder with Chowder until the exploding head thang got out of hand. :). I am partial to the second wave feminists. Great insights. Reminds me of the road my feminist sister took.

When Christina Hoff Summers was being screamed at my the New Feminists, “Quit speaking to us as children!”, Ms. Summers calmly replied, “Then quit acting like children.” Mio only got three words in. His address was clear, concise, and complete. “Feminism is cancer.” :). Of course he meant ‘new feminism.’, the whinny man hating complainers. And Christina Hoff Summers debunked the myth of campus rape with facts. Half the co-eds are sexually assaulted on campuses? Really. Ok, children, let’s look at the facts. The real facts. “Heretic! Heretic! Burn her with her ideas at the stake!”

Some of the best and brightest have faced the Inquisition and have been found quilty. And to think they were once the leaders and stars of the Movement. Go figure

LIB news is breaking records!!
"MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow lost a whopping 20 percent of her audience after the release of the Mueller Report proved she shamelessly deceived her audience for more than two years.
The release of this report — you know, the one that exonerates President Trump of any and all allegations of Russia collusion, is, arguably, the biggest news of the last two years — and in the heat of this massive news cycle that lands directly in Maddow’s sweet spot, a huge chunk of her audience just up and disappeared.

For two years a cloud of illegitimacy hung over the Trump presidency and for two years the establishment media, most especially MSNBC and CNN, maniacally fire hosed the American people with fake news to smear the president as a Russian spy. But of all those guilty of spreading this dishonest hysteria, no one came close to Rachel Maddow."
https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/03/27/nolte-russia-hoax-queen-rachel-maddows-ratings-take-20-dive/

Then there is CNN... Just how will they keep the lights on?
https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/03/27/nolte-dying-cnn-lost-almost-30-of-primetime-audience/
"During the week of March 18, the far-left CNN lost almost 30 percent of an audience that is already minuscule.
In the arenas of credibility and viewership, CNN is a dying brand. Over the last week, the news has been especially bad for the far-left outlet.

On the credibility front, CNN chief Jeff Zucker tried to excuse his network’s two-year deliberate deception about Trump colluding with the Russians by admitting on Tuesday that no one at CNN does investigative work."

Well,,, CNN has at least three viewers left in Nevada City.

No worries about Clinton News Network or Rachel Manboy on LSDMSNBC. Where are they to go? Wherever they go in the short term and whatever drove them away, Trump will drive them home. Besides, they like the taste of that pure unadulterated fakenews hate. Makes them feel all tingly. They got addicted to it and where else can they get their milk? Like Michael Jackson and Joan Rivers, they want their “milk.” They need their milk. Got to got to got to get their milk.

The race of the B’s.

Have you seen the newest kid on the block? Instead of Biden, Bernie, and Beto, have you cconsidered Biden, Bernie, and Buttigieg? He might take over Beto’s lane.

“Buttigieg's home paper, the South Bend Tribune, reports that Buttigieg "leap-frogged" a handful of well-known Democratic contenders, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) to take third place behind former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who have 25% and 24% respectively. Buttigieg is at 11%.

Harris is the only candidate even remotely competitive, with 10%.

That's shocking news for the full Democratic field. Buttigieg is not a known commodity, but he is a well-liked mayor, a veteran, and a relatively soft-spoken progressive, whose rhetoric on the campaign trail, so far, has been far more inclusive than that of his competitors.”

I'll quote Fox, but it's all over the place:

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/rand-paul-source-says-john-brennan-pushed-discredited-steele-dossier

"Citing a "high-level source," Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul charged in a bombshell Twitter post late Wednesday that anti-Trump ex-CIA Director John Brennan "insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier" be included in a classified intelligence community report on Russian interference in the 2016 elections -- a decision that ultimately lent credibility to the dossier and may have played a key role in fomenting unfounded fears of Russia collusion for two years."


The frightening thing, and it really is frightening, is that a man like this can rise to the head of a primary intelligence agency (one of 17!!). Obviously partisan, obviously part of a coup attempt, obviously skirting the law himself. It didn't matter at one time, but with the accelerating importance of the CIA and it's brethren in our national surveillance state, the last thing you want is a politically involved spying community.

Perhaps it's just a natural side effect of a country in it's dotage. We are feeling around for a new and stable system that resembles the Soviet troika of party/army/KGB.

Adam Schiff is all pissed off.

"“My colleagues may think it is okay the president’s son was offered dirt as part of an effort to help Trump,” an agitated Schiff said. “You might think it is okay. I don’t.”

Well now... What about the "dirt" that Schiff was offered by the "Russians"? Does Adam forget that? It was even RECORDED.

"The Special Olympics is not a government program."

"...the United States Department of Education, in partnership with state Departments of Education and local education authorities, have contracted with Special Olympics to provide critical educational services in schools, supporting the development of children with special needs,"

"But, that’s not the issue now, is it?" Neither is the 17 million. Trump is making a personal jab out of spite. It's his third try. Fortunately the Democrats have waylaid his sociopathic efforts.

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/prez_track_mar28
"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove."

Emery won't be happy either.

Walt

Tell the whole story OZZhole.
"But despite the outrage, the Trump administration is right: the federal government should cut its funding for the Special Olympics.

Consider the role of the federal government. Everything it funds should have good answers to these questions: What does the program do, and is it absolutely vital to the country? If the answer is that it's not vital, but it just seems like a nice thing to do, then it’s hard to justify it forcing people to spend their money on something they could voluntarily donate to.

The Special Olympics does not need federal funding. Thankfully, they do a great job generating revenue on their own. During the 2016 fiscal year, they earned $111.7 million in revenue (with only about $11.5 million, or 10 percent, coming from the federal government) and had $109.9 million in expenses, meaning they had a $1.8 million surplus — plus, $61.3 million in net assets. Corporate sponsorships and direct mail contributions comprised more than 80 percent of its revenue stream, while investments and other fundraising comprised about another 10 percent."

Walt 8:36
I guess in the same vein, you believe the government should stop contributing to school shooting sports and hunter safety classes (I got my hunter safety training and certificate in 7th grade PE).

Of course, West Point is an okay way to spend tax dollars - we even give football scholarships over more talented students. I don't see Trump trying unfund military academies.

Trump has never hidden his disdain for "inferior" people. He doesn't like short people. He mocks the physically disabled in public.

scenes 821am - "Perhaps it's just a natural side effect of a country in it's dotage. We are feeling around for a new and stable system that resembles the Soviet troika of party/army/KGB." You have nailed it Mr scenes. Yes, when a country (or any large scale organization) starts to lose it dash and verve, and seeks to just conserve what it thinks it has, then the collectivist worthies ooze (Ozz?) out of the woodwork to put in place guardian institutions (judicial, police) to preserve and redistribute what the formerly bright-eyed and bushy-tailed entrepreneurs and workers have put in place.

These people are a country's real stultifiers and stagnators, and their Big Lie has always been to wrap themselves in the 'progressive' mantle as if that label actually ever achieved or even denoted existential progress that improved the aggregate quality of life, instead of creating their usual aftermath of equal opportunity despair. Historically, they are the emergent grim reapers of all social orders that have lost the courage to face the risks and responsibilities that grow and advance civilizations.

Paul Emery

Rasmussen is not a credible poll Walt. They were dismally off the mark in the last election predicting the Re- Pubs would carry the House. They lost 40 seats. No credibility.

Paul Emery

George

Can you refer us RR readers to a half dozen or so contemporary Countries that are following the prescriptions that match your Conservatarian values?

Walt

There there Emery,,, your aged mind forgets that under "O",, Your side lost MORE. From sea to shining sea.
But whatever keeps what little hair you have left from falling out...

Todd Juvinall

Dunny how Paul Emery uses the Rasmussen poll when it is showing Trump down and now he says it is not credible. The man is absurd.

Paul Emery

Your changing the topic Walt. I was referring to the last elections and the predictions made by your favorite poll-Rasmussen and how wrong they were.

George Rebane

PaulE 1015am - No.

Todd Juvinall

Now Paul Emery is asking whar other countries are following the conservatarian ideology. I suggest that Paul Emery tell us the countries he thinks are equal or superior to GeorgeR's views.

Paul Emery

Apparently that's all countries Todd since George has stated that there are no Countries today following his ideology.

George let me expand my question to you to include countries from the past that might have followed your Conservatarian values.

George Rebane

PaulE 1003am - You seem to have a very refined if not terminally obtuse sense of 'poll credibility'. Can you share with us that sense, preferably with accessible metrics, so that we may properly appreciate the high level of confidence you have in certain polls and not in others - a confidence that I'm sure transcends just affinity to certain polls' results and includes also their longer term performance?

George Rebane

PaulE 1029am - "... that's all countries"??!! By what measure to you come to such an astounding conclusion (other than not having a clue as to my conservetarian prescriptions for organizing society and governance)?

Walt

Only the polls that say what Paul likes are deemed "credible".
Sorry Emery,, your not the "credibility" referee.

Paul Emery

George

I support consensus polls-usually RCP- that average all the credible polls including Rasmussen. Rasmussen was way out of line in the last election being 9% off the mark with the final results. We've been through this before.

Stay tune folks for the predictable response from Gregory.

Don Bessee

Now that's rich, the disgraced po' ol' fakenewsman who has been consistently wrong for over 2 years has ZERO credibility when it comes to challenging anything's credibility. LOL

Paul Emery

George

I did not express myself clearly in my 1029. Lets try this instead:

Since George claims there are no countries following his Conservatarian values it is not possible to make a comparison. There is no point of reference without comparable examples which were not provided by George. In fact he states there are none which makes the question moot.

George
If you can suggest some historical examples I will be glad to make comparisons.

Walt

LOL!! And just the other day Emery sites Rasmussen.(When the numbers were what "he" liked.) Keep digging Emery. The unicorn is under that pile of 💩 somewhere.

Been right more than not which is way more than all you lyin' sacks in the fakenews biz can say. Face it you guzzled the koolaide in 2016 and never looked back. Keep selling it to the trolls who are fellow TDS sufferers. Its a sad show to folks who didn't drink the koolaide!

Daily Quotes :

For the record: “Keep in mind that Mueller was not simply investigating Trump; he was also investigation the Russian government. He exonerated Trump but not Vladimir Putin. Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies on charges of conspiracy and identity theft. There was a conspiracy to influence the 2016 elections. Trump just wasn’t a part of it.” —Marc A. Thiessen

Notice a pattern here? “Democrats in 2015: Everyone must accept results of the election. Democrats day after the election 2016: We do not accept the results of the election. Democrats 2017: Everyone must accept findings of the Mueller report. Democrats 2019: We do not accept findings of Mueller report.” —Charlie Kirk

Observations: “There are many things Democrats do not do well. But the thing they do least well is lose.” —Star Parker

Demo-gogues: “I opposed Clarence Thomas’ nomination. I voted against him. But I also realized there was a real and perceived problem the committee faced. There were a bunch of white guys. … So when Anita Hill … came to testify, she faced a committee that didn’t fully understand what the hell it was all about. To this day I regret I couldn’t come up with a way to get her the kind of hearing she deserved.” —Joe Biden

Braying Jenny: “I, firmly, believe that the House Committee on Judiciary should seek out whether President Trump has committed ‘High crimes and Misdemeanors’ as designated by the U.S. Constitution and if the facts support those findings, that Congress begin impeachment proceedings.” —Rep. Rashida Tlaib

Non sequitur: “We’ve got to do away with the Electoral College. We have a system now that was — it’s a defect in our democracy.” —Eric Holder (Actually, the Electoral College is meant to correct a defect prevalent in pure democracies.)

Non Compos Mentis: “We may never really know what happened on the street that night in Chicago.” —CNN’s Brian Stelter regarding Jussie Smollett (On the contrary, we know exactly what happened.)

And last… “Imagine if a white male actor faked a hate crime against himself by pretending black men attacked him in the middle of the night — then was subsequently acquitted of all charges. #JussieSmollett is an utter perversion of justice who just DESTROYED the myth of white privilege.” —Candace Owens

Bonus:
“Not everyone was happy that the clock received this recognition. Some reporters, who wish to remain anonymous, say the clock sets an unrealistic standard for news accuracy.”

It appears that the Mueller report exonerates Trump and it says NO Americans colluded. The summary is accurate and Bill Barr, the most trusted man in the country did the summary. We have the faith in the people that tell the truth. That is not afforded to the lamestream media purveyors of fake news. Even the local KNVR is fake news.

It appears that you are full of shit.

Todd @ 12:53 pm

Yep, they are all reading from the same e-mail script. The talking points have been sent out. Just listened to another montage of the FakesNews saying, “No exoneration , no exoneration, no exoneration, no exoneration., no....”. Wow. They stop there at ‘no exoneration’ and not read to the viewer the next paragraph, lol. They are setting themselves up for a fall. Oh, let the children have their fun. Like Zucker just said, “It’s not the journalists’ job to investigate, ROFLMAO. . At least they are literally all on the same page. Second verse same as the first. Patience grasshoppers, patience. I love how they get their hopes sky high thinking they be experts....then the deflation. Wily E Coyote falling from the ledge to the desert floor with the puff of dust.

Boy, Carl Bernstein was once young, but it’s sad to see him turn into a bloated drunk hacking up loogies on himself. Sad like what has become of John Lewis. Oh well.
Glad to see Carl make the list.

Carl Bernstein / Jim Sciutto (CNN)

Bernstein and Sciutto reported in August 2018 that Michael Cohen was prepared to tell Congress that Trump knew about his son meeting with Russians in Trump Tower before the meeting occurred.

The story flew in the face of Cohen’s prior testimony that he did not know about the meeting in advance. Cohen’s attorney at the time, Lanny Davis, later said that he was a source for CNN’s story and made a mistake by claiming Cohen had any information regarding the Trump Tower meeting.

CNN has refused to retract the story

The fix is in -

Marlow and Cernovich also discussed how the mainstream media holds the right, including non-journalists, to standards far higher than what they hold themselves to.

“Here’s a great example,” said Cernovich. “Mehdi Hasan, who’s big at Al Jazeera — which is owned by Qatar — and [who’s] now a CNN golden child … He goes around [saying] everybody’s a bigot, everybody’s a homophobe … This guy’s said some really bad stuff, way worse than Tucker Carlson, way worse than anything conservative media personalities say.”

Footage recently surfaced of Hasan, who regularly appears on mainstream media channels, comparing non-Muslims to animals, atheists to “cattle,” and gays to sexual deviants and pedophiles.
“The media’s not going to bring that up every time they talk about him” explained Cernovich. “They’re not going to say ‘Mehdi Hasan, comma, who works for a Qatari propaganda outlet and also compared people to animals, comma, said the following…'”

“They’ll just treat him as a straight-laced journalist, and pretend as if all of this stuff that he’s said, the fact that he works for state-owned media is not relevant at all.”

read this from Barrs report 10 times then explain to us what it means.

" “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

From Fox News:

"Shep Smith refuses to fall for GOP whitewash on Mueller report: ‘They want us to think this is over — it is not

Smith pointed out that Attorney General William Barr has only provided Congress with a four-page summary of the report, which is said to be more than 300 pages.

“They want us to think this is over. It is not,” the Fox News host said. “We still have not seen the Mueller report and have only a four-page summary from the attorney general.”

We can do this to the local po' ol' fakenewsman too!

Trump allies see Barr’s letter as a kind of Swiss Army knife—a tool useful in all kinds of situations. Not only is it exculpatory, they say, but it also implicitly rebukes the press for its coverage of the Russia investigation, inoculating Trump from any future scandal that reporters might unearth. According to a source familiar with internal discussions at the Republican National Committee and the pro-Trump super PAC America First, both organizations are “geared up for any nonsense to come.”

They’re already prepared to attack reporters. “Any reporter who tries that will be hit with 30-second spots of all their ridiculous claims about collusion,” said the source, who, like others interviewed for this story, requested anonymity to describe private conversations. “Their tweets have all been screencapped. It’s all ready to go.”

Sorry you are parsing. That is on the issue of "obstruction" and Barr and Rosenstein then actually did exonerate Trump. So once again you libs are making fake news.

Todd Juvinall

Here is the link to the full document and you read page four OOZE, I expect yuopu to disrobe, take a willow switch and beat yourself about the back and face. You are a moron and you and Paul Emery are birds of a feather.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/03/24/us/politics/barr-letter-mueller-report.html

Bill Tozer

For those who can’t get behind NYT paywall, Page 3 (and 4) of the report is of the topic of discussion: The never ending story of “exoneration. Read the paragraphs after “exoneration” on Page 3.

https://assets.bwbx.io/documents/users/iqjWHBFdfxIU/r.njjovzDF.E/v0

Barr did a decent job of summarizing Meuller’s Report. The report itself should contain its own few page summary when released.

Mueller obviously looked at legal requirements that Barr (along with Rosenstein and the Office Legal Counsel) looked at and all conducted that the Trump did not committ a crime...or for those who want Trump guilty, they all concluded that they could not reach the threshold of burden of proof....or, if you will, the preponderance of evidence. As Comey would say, “No reasonable procesutor would try this case.”

Mueller consulted the Office of Legal Counsel himself while writing the report. The guideline he is under is the same for anyone in the DOJ: you cannot procesutor someone for a crime you cannot prove, nor can you prosecute a case you cannot win.

So Mueller kicked the Obstruction of Justice case back to the AG. Wisely, Barr and Rosenstein and the Office of Legal Counsel all sat down together, went over the evidence, and said we cannot prosecute this based on the evidence and threshold. No crime, regardless of whether they cannot indict a sitting POTUS.

So, we have in the public’s view Barr(R), Rosenstein (Trump hater), and the Office of Legal Counsel (Bureaucracy) all agreeing. Seems fair and balanced and consistent with Mueller’s conclusion of no crime committed. .

Bottomline: Mueller wrote a report for the impeachment question, not for the legal question. Otherwise he would have pursued the legal avenue and would have lost.

Bill Tozer

Oh my. Rand Paul said he would and he done did. Makes sense. If we are going to appoint a Special Counsel to spend two years looking into Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign, we must look into what launched the Special Counsel in the first place.

“Under Senate rules, any one senator can request that any bill or resolution be passed. But because it requires the sign-off of every senator, any one senator can also block their request.”

I don't care whether it's a Democrat president or a Republican president, we should not waste the time of the entire country sending spies into campaigns, making false accusations and tying the country in knots for two years," Paul said from the Senate floor on Thursday.

"We will agree to see the Mueller report as long as the other side will agree to show us the communications that took place in deciding to promote this fake allegation against the president and whether there was misuse of their office," he continued. "We based this investigation on a lie, we should investigate who the liars were."

Agreed. Let’s find out who the liars were.

It looks like a trend where the leftie shows are loosing a third of their viewers, could those be the coveted middle of the road folks who have waked away in disgust?

Ratings for the FOX drama Empire crashed to an all-time low on Wednesday following the abrupt decision by the Cook County prosecutor to drop all charges against the show’s embattled star Jussie Smollett.
According to TVLine, Wednesday night’s episode of Empire dropped to 3.97 million viewers. This all-time low follows last week’s low performance of only 4 million total viewers.

The ratings for the Fox drama have been in a free fall since Smollett allegedly planned a hoax attack against himself. Two weeks ago, the show’s fifth season debut episode dropped 35 percent in the ratings compared to last year.

While Soros and 0 can manipulate the Cook County prosecutor there are other departments that are not under Soros's thumb and then there is the FBI investigations.

According to the city law department, the city of Chicago is seeking "immediate payment" of the $130,000 "expended on overtime hours in the investigation of this matter," adding that if the amount is not paid within 7 days the "Department of Law may prosecute" Smollett "for making a false statement to the City" or "pursue any other legal remedy available at law."
