While the anti-Trump Jihad continues apace, you do have to wonder what will be the unintended consequences of this. I can see where hesitation in feeding a bubble might end the thing:

Its clear the pony tail of ignorance does not have a date for valentines day.

I am making my hottie dinner. Way too big marbled steaks, sautéed asparagus and mushrooms, fresh sourdough, champagne and sees candy and home made chocolate mouse.

Its no assumption that Flynn and his son were ruined. Flynn had to sell his very nice house and yes the court record shows he was badly abused by the FBI and doj with his own now fired law firm who had massive conflicts of interes. Just that facts ma'am.

all of the DOJ counter-investigations have fizzled simply because they were designed to impugn trump detractors rather than address any real criminal activity. In trumplandia it's all about discrediting adversaries and has nothing to do with the truth...typical

Bernie got burned.. Hummm ,,,Doing exactly what he accused Trump of doing. (Colluding with a foreign national to influence our election)
Nope,,, just the Russians again. HA Haaaa.
https://www.breitbart.com/news/bernie-sanders-pranked-by-russians-posing-as-greta-thunberg/
"MOSCOW (AP) — Russian pranksters claim they called U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders pretending to be climate activist Greta Thunberg and offered Thunberg’s support to his campaign."

In the recording, an unnamed female pretends to be Greta, and Stolyarov plays her father, Svante. They offer to lend support to the campaign of a man who identifies himself as Sanders, and the man welcomes it.

The 78-year-old Sanders suggests that “Greta” make a statement in his support and that they do an event together when she next comes to the U.S. “I would be really appreciative,” he says.

“Greta” then proposes to record a rap song in support of Sanders together with “singer Billie Eilish and rapper Kanye West.”

Sanders says that would be “terrific” and tries to end the conversation, but the duo says “Greta” is about to visit Russia and needs advice on how to behave there.

The Vermont senator tells her to be careful to not be used for PR purposes. “I think what you don’t want to do is simply walk in there and get used,” he says.

“Russia and (President Vladimir) Putin has been very bad, as far as I know, on climate change. They have a lot of oil, oil is important for their economy, they make a lot of money on oil,” Sanders explains.

After that, “Greta” tells Sanders that he was recruited by the KGB in 1988 when he visited Russia and has since been a “sleeper agent.” “Now it’s time to wake up and fulfill your mission, become president of the United States, build communism in the United States and work for Russia!” she says, after which Sanders appears to hang up the phone. "

These guys are two for two (if not more) They had Schiffy hanging on every word.

Roger Stone and the Flight of the Drama Queens. Good link contain within. Readers Digest version:

“[T]he fact remains that Team Mueller existed — in Weissmann’s words — to “get rid of” Donald Trump. Given that goal, the filing of this surprise and overblown sentencing memorandum by the Team Mueller holdovers and their prompt, unnecessary, and dramatic resignations should be understood as a last, desperate effort by the rear guard of the defunct Special Counsel’s Office to bring the president, Attorney General William Barr, and the Justice Department into disrepute.

Put another way, this whole stunt is nothing more than a choreographed two-act political melodrama in which the Team Mueller holdovers filed their overhyped, unauthorized sentencing memorandum and then followed up with a grand jeté exit stage left to a shower of bouquets and bravos from an adoring Democrat and mainstream media audience.

Attorney General William Barr has been summoned to testify before Congress about these matters, and, unsurprisingly, there have even been calls for his impeachment. The apparent premise for Barr’s removal is that the Justice Department, acting under his direction, may not make a sentencing recommendation that contradicts to any degree that of the Team Mueller holdovers even though the entirely reasonable contradictory memorandum recommends incarceration and explicitly leaves the sentence entirely up to the judge. And, as for Trump, even though he is the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, apparently he isn’t allowed to criticize either the fishy-smelling Stone prosecution or the work of the sacrosanct Team Mueller.

All of this is just the kind of fake pretextual material that the deranged Democrats and their mainstream media amen corner may use to gin up yet another feverish round of impeachment.”

Team Mueller was of course the team for which the press was rooting, or playing for. The mission survives the team.

Mayor Peter ain’t queer enough for some? Say it ain’t so.

“THE LATEST IN INTERSECTIONAL BINGO: QUEERS AGAINST PETE?
You can be forgiven for thinking the left’s fetish over “intersectionality”—the deliberate attempt to keep all designated victim groups in good standing with one another through a unified matrix of oppression—resembles a Bingo game run amok because no one ever actually wins a round. The best example right now are the identitarians attacking Pete Buttigieg because . . . he’s not gay enough, or something.

The New Yorker this week brings us “The Queer Opposition to Pete Buttigieg, Explained.” I really had to wonder when reading it whether it was another Andy Borowitz parody. Apparently the problem with Pete is that he simply wasn’t (and isn’t) militant enough on behalf of LGBT identity:

“The notion that some of us think Buttigieg is not gay enough has an identifiable relationship to the facts, which are that, for the purposes of this discussion, people who grew up queer in this country fall into two distinct categories of experience. . .”

**Oh great. Now we have to add still more lines to our intersectionality matrix to distinguish and calibrate kinds or degrees of queerness.

Toes @ 6:12. Yep, odd that McCabe should be first to clear the Barr-Dunham gantlet unindicted. I sort of recall about two years ago being surprised when McCabe was the first suspect to publicly describe the Russia-collusion hoax as a "coup."

At the time, I thought he realized the mess he was in and was attempting to get out ahead of the rush- then the story died as if he'd never said it.

Far from a bit player, he (while not a leader) was right at the intersection of FBI, CIA and NSA. Comey, Brennan and Clapper who were the tactical leaders. Now Andy's free to sing his head off and help convict the whole rotten tribe.

The strateguc leaders, however, may still skate- Obama and HRC- despite best efforts.

Don Bessee

L - The fact that the limited mandate IG has gone light on some of the same folks who he worked with and whos heads have rolled as you point out means The Main Event is coming and we are likely to have these folks as witnesses against Brennen and Clapper etc.

You wont see Loretta tarmac jet meeting Lynch. So the beginning of the 2nd term we could well see a flip to the trials of dems not r's.

Yes, McCabe was activity involved coordinating with the top counter intelligent agent, Peter. The lovebirds texts show how McCabe as the point man with Lisa and Andy pushing the DOJ-National Security Division to get the FISA warrant signed with the deadline approaching (October surprise). Sign it, time is running out before the election!

McCabe said he had Comey’s foreknowledge and permission when he and Lisa Page at his side leaked the existence of the investigation to the press. Comey denied giving permission to talk and leak to the press it and threw him under the bus pretending Andy McCabe went rogue. He is fired! McCabe lied multiple times (4), three of which were under oath to investigators. Yet Comey acted like his Assistant Deputy AG was some lower level personnel guy, seven layers below James Comey, lol

What always has stuck with me is spending a few hours reading Lisa’s closed door testimony to the Senate. She was stunned that Brennan had the same intel that the FBI had in August when the FBI was doing a primarily investigation.
“How did Brennan know what we knew in our investigation into Trump and the Russians?”, she wondered out loud when presented Brennan’s papers he took privately to Harry Reid. Reid then called on Comey to open an investigation.
Since the FBI kept it a secret and had not contacted the CIA, how did Brennan have the same stuff the FBI was collecting, if not before????? Lisa said it was puzzling, highly unusual, and stopped herself from saying anything more as she was putting it all together live during her testimony.

FYI, there are certain FISA warrants so sensitive that those kind of warrants need the signature of the head of the DOJ-National Security Division, not some deputy of the division. John Corbin finally signed off on the Carter Page and promptly quit the department in mid-Oct, 2016....before the election.

The DOJ-Nat’l Division was formed after 9-11 and is exempt for any IG probe. Mike Rogers was auditing them and they missed their Oct. 7th deadline to comply with the audit after missing the Sept. and August deadline. He smelled something rotten.
The race was on. Mike Rogers is knocking at the door and it was panic time. Sign the warrant application and get the hell out of Dodge, like now!! John Corbin’s previous job was Mueller chief of staff when Robert Mueller was FBI Director....

McCabe is going to walk. Fair enough. Stone is going to prison and Barr is getting closer to the stink. Barr just wants to find out how the Russian Hoax started, the origins of the Obama Administration effort to unleash the power of the police state on an opponent’s political campaign.

Perhaps it would easiest to just keep the President in a permanent state of impeachment.

You'll never get 2/3 of the Senate, even one with a small (D) majority to carry it out. He hasn't done anything wrong, or more accurately, anything wrong enough. You could find grounds to impeach any President. Just imagine hanging a mic 24/7 on LBJ.

So, best to just impeach, never hand it to the Senate this time, go back to more interesting things like the argument between the old Democratic pols and their gift to America, The Squad. The Squad and it's portion of the public will never be satiated. It could be that the only thing holding them back is the Boss Hawgs of the House, so don't wish for Pelosi's demise so readily.

Worth watching a few minutes of this interview. California, the feudal system. A common complaint. The law abiding tax payer who plays by the rules gets the fine for parking a car in his front yard or some other violation, while his neighbor down the way in a crowded shack with a unlicensed junk yard in his yard gets the blind eye from the same code enforcement officer.

It's fun to think about those days of yore when we used to hear little bleats of 'only the Federal government should be involved with immigration'.

lol. You know they never ever meant it.

Of course, if the Left had their act together, I guess they could set up single payer healthcare and free college in places like California. The taxation system is already in place and the government is single party. I suppose that if you consider homeless encampments and poop in the streets a desirable Team Blue objective, everything is going swimmingly.

Term ‘At-Risk Youth’ Replaced With ‘At-Promise Youth’ In California Penal Codes

by Laura Haefeli
February 13, 2020

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The term “at-risk youth” was commonly used in both penal and education codes in California – until now.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed legislation that went into effect on Jan. 1 that officially wiped the phrase from the state’s language. The phrase will now be replaced by “at-promise youth.”

Assemblymember Byron Jones-Sawyer (D-South Los Angeles), who penned the passed legislation, says the measure will change the negative connotation that comes along with the “at-risk” label.

“I learned that words matter – and once they were called ‘at-risk,’ they almost were in the school-to-prison pipeline automatically,” Jones-Sawyer said......



Now....some good could come from this legislative slight of hand. First.....Gavin Newsome probably just scuttled his chances of ever becoming president. Second.....Steve Frisch no longer has any reason at all to not hire a black person at the SBC.

After all......who wouldn't want someone "At Promise" working for them?!

A look back....like yesterday: Michael Avenatti.

Montage!

https://twitter.com/FreeBeacon/status/1228407419040157702?

And a article.

‘The media elevated Michael Avenatti to stardom; his felony conviction reflects on them’

“On Friday, the celebrity lawyer was found guilty of trying to extort Nike. This is obviously not great for Avenatti, who faces additional charges of tax, wire, and bank fraud in California and fraud and aggravated identity theft charges in New York. You know who else looks bad after Friday’s ruling? Every idiot journalist, television host, and news commentator who ignored the red flags surrounding Avenatti, elevating him to the point where there was semi-serious chatter about him launching a 2020 presidential bid.”...

“But what do you expect from the same people who built up the infamously unreliable author Michael Wolff only to have him self-immolate with ludicrous, lurid claims about U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley? News anchors and commentators who had previously downplayed the factual errors in Wolff’s book, Fire and Fury, with amended versions of “fake but accurate” were left with the embarrassment of trying to disavow the very person they had turned into a national star.

The Avenatti case is a lot like Wolff episode. If you have something salacious and negative to say about Trump, then all the standards go out the window. It may be great television for the anti-Trump “resistance” faithful, but it is poisonous to the credibility of the organizations that promote this stuff, especially when it involves the elevation of individuals who are obviously untrustworthy......”

“By the way, after all the hype, all the interviews and late-night appearances, both of Daniels’ lawsuits were dismissed in federal court in 2019. Daniels, who alleges now that Avenatti stole nearly $300,000 from her, was ordered by a judge to pay $300,000 in Trump's legal fees. It is hard to lose a case much worse than that.”

fish: " I guess "Menacing School Counselor" missed the memo!"

I ran into a response by someone about Menacing School Counselor (aka, Stefan Goldstone) that got me to thinking.

There's something of a perfect storm in activists who work in the Education Industrial Complex. Partly due to their schooling, partly due to selectivity in hiring, maybe partly due to types who are attracted to the work, you will have a strong swing in the direction they go. The real problem erupts in that their typical work day is dealing with kids. They are used to a power relationship to other people that doesn't extended to the everyday world.

So, it's a two-fer. They not only poison children, but they get a mistaken impression of their relationship and status with everyone else.

A thought about McCabe.

The insider joke about the DOJ for years has been, “Justice for you, Just Us for us.”

McCabe lied 4 times, 3 under oath to FBI investigators. Walks. Flynn has a casual conversation with a couple of FBI agents and did not even know they were interrogating him, nor did the agents call the White House counsel’s office for access to Flynn. McCabe and Sally Yates set up the hit. Justice for them, no justice for Just Us.

Politics aside, it just looks bad. From the start of investigating the investigators, my biggest concern has always been that the perpetrators of the hoaxes would not be held accountable. Rarely if ever has been the MO. A person leaks the Trump call to Australia or Mexico (a breach of National Security and employee conduct), and just gets transferred to another department. Just us.

Former Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, took a deposition for Schiffilis in the basement of the House. She testified under oath as a witness, contradicting her sworn deposition as well as uttering two lies in her testimony. She has since retired from public service. No charges. She walks, yet if she had worked for Trump or was an associate of Trump.....she would be dipped in a vat of hot tar, bankrupted, and never work in this town again! But, it’s all just us.


Two-tier Justice system isn’t nothing new......nothing to see here. I still have my doubts that any will be held to a standard of accountability. Without accountability, this pattern of abuse of power by the police state will continue. A slap on the wrists and a golden parachute, with or without William Barr.

TIME TO DISPATCH MR. GOLDSTONE! QUICK......TO THE COUNSELORMOBILE"



San Francisco Middle School Descends Into ‘Lord Of The Flies’ Environment


One of the scariest incidents at Aptos this school year occurred in September, when two girls attacked a sixth-grade girl on the schoolyard. The girls pulled the sixth-grader to the ground by her hair, pulled a chunk of it out of her skull and kicked her in the face and the back of her head…

School administrators held a “restorative justice” meeting with the families of each girl. That’s the school district’s preferred way of resolving disputes, and it centers on mediation and acknowledging harm.

“There were no apologies,” [the victim’s mother] said. “When asked specifically what they would do differently, the girl said, ‘Well, I guess I wouldn’t have kicked her in the face.’… Those girls have approached her multiple times since then and said, ‘You better keep your mouth shut, you little bitch.’”…

“It’s kind of ‘Lord of the Flies’ around here,” [the mother] said.

And somewhere in the mix, she called for Barr’s impeachment with the proverbial “ImpeachTrump too!,” thrown i good measure. She must have read, “WTF Happened” by HR Clinton. I knew that script sounded familiar.

Dr. Rebane was spot on, per usual.. I, too, would rather be in jail caged up with Hillary than stuck with Thin Lizzy Spreading Bull any day of the week. That’s goes for nights as well.

Recycled joke: Elizabeth Warren, of all people, should know better than to ever turn your guns over to the government.

George 10:34 --" for some reason the lamestream and their local lackeys never mention these." probably because, by comparison, it's not an issue with mentioning. You keep deflecting to Obama and Clinton and anyone else you can think of as an (speaking of lame) excuse for Trump's spending on personal luxuries like golf and fortifying his investments with taxpayer dollars. Talk about transfer of wealth.... from everyone to trump enterprises.

Walt

If there were any truth to Melvin P. Thorpe's "transfer of wealth" noise,, Every Proggy in the house would be bitching from the rafters.
Just yell "SQUIRREL" Melvin,, it sounds better.

BTW Melvin P.,, America was plenty safer when "O" was padding his record golf game streak on the links, than when he was in the oval office.

odlaw 1231pm - unfortunately for Obama, all those passing Econ 101 knew then and know now that Obama's deficits did nothing to get us out of the Great Recession, and his tax increases and carloads of regs hindered it. But America's capitalist economy has been strong enough to already weather several socialist assaults, and so it was with Obama's throwing sand in the gears. But that is no guarantee that the promised ministrations of the clown car occupants will not ultimately do us in to become the 'sick man of North America' - after all that's the Left's goal to globalism.

GeorgeR: " Barry and Michelle's lavish vacations over their eight years also come to mind; "

To be fair, I haven't noticed as much grifting as you might expect from that Dynamic Duo. If the media folks want to throw some money their way, it's no skin off my @ss.

The Clintons set the bar *so* high for pay-offs, largely bribes disguised as public-speaking fees and 'charity' contributions, that it's hard to be amazed by any other President in my lifetime. I always naturally assumed that Johnson was an incredible crook, maybe just as a by-product of his place and time, but the Clintons really rule the roost here. Obama might be as ridiculous as Trump in a lot of ways, but he doesn't strike me as being as criminal as Bill 'n Hillary.

Maybe it's all just the genius of our Founders at work. Modern Presidents tend to be people who could never have worked their way up through a parliamentary system, it's all retail politics. Sometimes the oligarchy running the House and Senate needs a troublemaker shooting one across their bow, even if you don't agree with the specifics.

Comrade Bernie sure likes OPM and makes sure his family gets its cut of the spoils -

Schweizer said, “I found that, really, over the course of 30 years, beginning when he was mayor of Burlington, VT, when he was in Congress, later, when he was in the U.S. Senate, he has steered lots of money to his family. Sometimes taxpayer money, sometimes campaign money. So, his family’s become quite wealthy through his public

service.”https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020/02/15/schweizer-sanders-family-has-become-quite-wealthy-through-his-public-service/

re: Товарищ Bernie.

It is rather unfortunate to run for President on some sort of high-morality platform and have those dreadful opposition research people drag out Burlington College land deals and the Sanders Institute. Oh well.

At least the GEOTUS is happy to admit being involved in government corruption, his problem was that he had to pay into it.

https://dailycaller.com/2020/02/15/cnn-nancy-pelosi-trump-acquitted/
"Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed President Donald Trump wasn’t really acquitted in the impeachment trial during an interview that aired this week with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

“What about, though, the fact that the president seems liberated, and this is about democratic politics so I’m not asking you to criticize here, but he was acquitted, his poll ratings are high …” Amanpour said.

“He was not … there was no …” Pelosi interrupted."

Tough times for the old bat.

Walt

More news the "gimmecrats" don't like.
https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/02/15/6-1-million-individuals-off-food-stamps-under-donald-trump/
"Approximately 6.1 million individuals dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Donald Trump’s first full month in office in February 2017, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)."

Household participation in SNAP declined as well, with 2,489,315 households discontinuing SNAP.

At least something same came out of the Oblunder years.
"Under these work requirements, which had been enacted at the state level during the Obama years, those between the ages of 18-49 and without children or dependents who receive food stamps for more than three months in a 36-month period must work, go to school, receive job training, or volunteer to receive benefits."

,,,PO Ol Walrus,,,

if you google the food stamp claim it is all over Daily Caller, BriteBitch, Fox and a big Nothing Burger!!!
Here is what the Roundtable propagandists don’t want you to know...

In 2013 the number of people on food stamps peaked and has been dropping ever since during the Obama recovery...and into the Trump presidency...Thanks Obama!!!

‘’’Let’s start with the numbers. In October 2015, around 45.4 million people received SNAP benefits. At that time, Trump used this number to argue that the country was failing to recover from the recession. By the time Trump was elected in November 2016, that number had fallen to 43.2 million people; by the time he took office, another couple hundred thousand people had dropped off the rolls.’’’

Wow Walrus!!! Trump only had to mention SNAP and the numbers magically went down before he was even elected!!!

Typical Trump boast that is just more BS that he had nothing to do with but lemmings like you will believe anything!!!

No more free pass for the chi coms tech theft -

The U.S. government is considering whether to stop General Electric Co from continuing to supply engines for a new Chinese passenger jet, according to people familiar with the matter, casting uncertainty over China's efforts to enter the civil aviation market.

The potential restriction on the engine sales - possibly along with limits on other components for Chinese commercial aircraft such as flight control systems made by Honeywell International Inc - is the latest move in the battle between the world's two largest economies over trade and technology.

The issue is expected to come up at an interagency meeting about how strictly to limit exports of U.S. technology to China on Thursday and at another meeting with members of President Donald Trump's Cabinet set for Feb. 28, sources said.

Our low rent troll is closing in on the pony tail of ignorance title. The chi cims have tried that for a very long time and only have grief to show for it. One thing they tried to do it on was a Russian engine they bought from the Ukraine and built the jet they use on carriers and they have been dropping like fly's. Short engine lifes and catastrophic failures happen across their fleet.

Good example of ignorant trollish behavior. Bonus question - How many parts in a GE jet engine and how many metallurgical miracles are need to make them all play nice?
