Sinking Sleaze-Bob Menendez

The metaphors don’t get any better (or worse) than this.

A van carrying Hillary Clinton, fresh from throwing her #MeToo sisters under the bus this weekend, crashed into a parking garage pillar on the way to a New Jersey campaign fundraiser Tuesday for beleaguered Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez. At her side was Huma Abedin, ex-wife of convicted serial sexter and underage girl stalker, ex-Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner.

Thankfully, nobody was hurt.

Question: Who could have possibly thought it a good idea for Hillary and Huma to front a women-themed party for Sleaze-Bob Menendez?

Answer: Only a conglomerate of liberal hacks and flacks with more blind spots than the Land of the Cyclops.

Exposing the Pedophile Senator

For those of you who are unaware, Robert Menendez’ biggest campaign contributor was a Florida dentist named Solomon Melgen, who has been convicted of more than 90 counts of Medicaid fraud.

The senator made numerous trips to the Dominican on Melgen’s private jet to have sex with underage prostitutes. Bill Clinton (and Hillary, allegedly) accompanied him on a number of trips.

Since Menendez is a Democrat, the media has never breathed a word of this, so his opponent has to.

Wall Street Whistleblower: Clinton Foundation is the ‘Largest Charitable Fraud in American History’

Former investment banker and self-styled Wall Street whistleblower Charles Ortel is one of the foremost experts on Clinton Foundation corruption. According to Ortel, “examination of available facts demonstrates the Clinton Foundation and its network of false-front charity “initiatives” and affiliates remains the largest set of unprosecuted charitable frauds in American history.”

The FBI has asked retired Australian policeman-turned investigative journalist, Michael Smith, to provide information he has gathered detailing multiple allegations of the Clinton Foundation receiving tens of millions of mishandled taxpayer funds, according to LifeZette.

One report after another from various media outlets have shown strange coincidences involving the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton Foundation would receive huge donations from donor X only to have donor X magically get favorable decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department around the same time.

Judge acquits Sen. Menendez on some charges

A federal judge has acquitted New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez and his friend Salomon Melgen of several charges, according to a new order filed Wednesday.

The order from Judge William Walls comes days after the Justice Department announced that it would retry its case against Menendez. The original trial, which took place in the fall of 2017, ended after the jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict on any of the 18 counts in the case.


[CtH: Thankfully, GOD’s justice is perfect!]

Walls wrote in a 50-page opinion that while political contributions can be the subject of a bribery case, the prosecution in this case did not demonstrate an explicit “quid pro quo” agreement between Menendez and Melgen in relation to Melgen’s contributions.

Sessions DOJ Moves To Protect Deep State AGAIN, Warns Against Releasing FISA Memo Without FBI Review

The Sessions Justice Department is calling on House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) to allow the FBI to review the “shocking,” FISA abuse memo to ensure its release will not harm national security.

While on the face on it, the Justice Department’s request is both logical and prudent. However, once in possession of the memo, which is likely to expose the role of top level FBI and Justice Department officials in using the Steele dossier to obtain FISA spy warrants, what do you think bureau officials will do? Wage a fierce PR campaign against it and the Republican lawmakers who demand the memo to be released.

James Woods Says What We Are All Thinking About Jeff Sessions and ‘Missing’ FBI Text Messages

It is obvious to anyone paying attention that Jeff Sessions has no control over the Justice Department.  Jeff Sessions has pretty much surrendered the DOJ to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein thanked Sessions for the exchange of power by appointing Special Counsel Robert Mueller to carry out a coup d’etat.

AG Sessions has the ability to unrecuse himself and end this Mueller witch hunt once and for all but he continues to sit on the sidelines as Americans watch Mueller take scalps.

Steve Schmidt Dismisses Reports of Corruption in FBI as a ‘Smear Campaign’

There’s the main reason MSNBC has this Trump-hating phony Republican on. To say stuff like this to the delight of host Chris Matthews.  Unbelievably, Schmidt’s deranged rants kept host Chris Matthews from seizing the mantle as the nuttiest person on Tuesday’s show.

John Kerry Tells Palestinian Official in London – “Trump Will Not Remain in Office Long”

John Kerry met with a top Palestinian official in London recently.  Kerry told the Fatah leader to stay strong because Trump will not be in office long.  Kerry also hinted that he may run for office again.

During the conversation, according to the report, Kerry asked Agha to convey a message to Abbas and ask him to “hold on and be strong.” Tell him, he told Agha, “that he should stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President Trump’s demands.” According to Kerry, Trump will not remain in office for a long time. It was reported that within a year there was a good chance that Trump would not be in the White House.

John Kerry tells Mahmoud Abbas ally that he might run for president in 2020 as he urges Palestinians to ‘play for time’ and ‘not give in to Trump’

Former secretary of state told a close confidant of Mahmoud Abbas that he’s considering another run for the White House.  Urged Palestinians to ‘play for time’ while Trump is president and said he could broker a separate peace deal with Israel.  Lebanese academic who met with Kerry in London relayed the conversation back to the Palestinian Authority, and an Israeli newspaper reported it.  Kerry, 74, was the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004 but lost to George W. Bush.

[CtH: Funny thing how nearly all the Democrats talking about running are old, rich, white guys.]

Sessions Threatens Sanctuary Cities With Subpoenas

The Justice Department warns it may subpoena documents explaining illegal alien-shielding policies.

“I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.

“Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law. We have seen too many examples of the threat to public safety represented by jurisdictions that actively thwart the federal government’s immigration enforcement—enough is enough.”


Cuomo wants to let Dreamers go to college for free

Cuomo tucked a provision in his $168 billion budget plan that would amend state education law to make the undocumented students eligible for the Excelsior Scholarship program, which covers tuition costs for students from families with incomes of up to $125,000.

On Tuesday, he said the state would continue providing Medicaid to Dreamers regardless of any federal changes to the Deferred Action Childhood Arrival Program, or DACA.


Mayors boycott White House meeting after administration threatens sanctuary cities

The leaders of New York, Chicago and New Orleans were among the Democrats who snubbed the Tuesday afternoon event after the Justice Department sent a threatening directive to their cites and 20 other cities and counties over their sanctuary policies regarding immigrants.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, president of the mayors conference, also said the Justice Department’s attack on so-called sanctuary cities moved him to boycott the White House meeting.

“I cannot in good conscience as president of the Unites States Conference of Mayors go to a meeting under false pretenses,” he said.

The list of invitees made public by the White House did not include Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, whose city is also one that the Trump administration has challenged over sanctuary policies. His office said he was invited and opted not to attend.

[CtH: Are they all going to hold their breath and kick their heels on the pavement until mean Donald gives them what they want?]


De Blasio abruptly cancels White House meeting with Trump

“I came down here ready to have a serious meeting and what I got was a publicity stunt from Trump,” Hizzoner told reporters in Washington D.C.

“He said, ‘Come over to my house but I’m going to take your wallet while you’re there.’ It was a slap in the face to our cities and our people.”

Trump lashes out at mayors boycotting White House event
The mayors who choose to boycott this event have put the needs of criminal, illegal immigrants over law-abiding America,” Trump told a group of mayors who attended the event. “So let me tell you, the vast majority of people showed up.”

The president spoke after the Justice Department threatened to legally compel almost two-dozen cities to show that they are cooperating with federal immigration laws.

[CtH: Remember when Obama sneered at Bush for refusing to meet with certain foreign leaders?]

New Missouri Rising Digital Ad Likens McCaskill to Clinton, Calls Her ‘Too Liberal for Missouri’


Pelosi Tries to Extend $137,000 Tax Break for Two of Her Multi-Million-Dollar Homes

Congress’s wealthiest woman plays the tax game too: Pelosi rushed to pre-pay property taxes after decrying GOP tax overhaul as middle-class tax hike and corporate giveaway

Largely thanks to her husband Paul, a real-estate and venture-capital investor, Pelosi is the wealthiest woman in Congress with a net worth of more than $100 million and the seventh wealthiest member overall, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
In fact, assets and cash disclosed in her 2016 financial-disclosure statement places Pelosi in the top one-tenth of the 1 percent of Americans.

Pelosi’s annual property tax bill alone on three luxury homes last year—$137,000—is more than twice the 2016 U.S. median household income of $59,039, which the U.S. Census reported last fall.

Brain Droppings

It seemed an appropriate title since most of the ideas my brain concocts are crap anyway. Being heavily medicated, this diatribe will likely ramble from one drug-addled thought to another.

It is heartbreaking to watch what’s being done to Judge Moore. The accusers come crawling out from under their rocks to make scurrilous accusations with no proof. They don’t need any. The republican standard is they must be able to prove their innocence beyond a doubt, otherwise they’re assumed guilty.

My prediction: despite the massive assault on a good man, I think he will prevail December 12. This will turn out to be an exercise in futility because there’s no way that prick McConnell is going to seat him. The fix has been in since he beat Mitchy’s boot licker Luther Strange in the republican primary. He’s enjoying the full cooperation of his democrat friends and there’s no way he’ll be allowed into their club.

Moore is down to having one supporter in the senate: Rand Paul. Cruz pulled his endorsement Monday and I’m not going to bother listing all the other who have run like the yellow dog cowards they are. This is nothing new for republicans. In 1973 Nixon may have survived the Watergate mess, but his own party leaders slithered in to the Oval Office and said he was going to face impeachment and they weren’t going to stop it.

When Newt Gingrich and the House GOP impeached that sociopathic rapist Bill Clinton, Senate Majority leader Trent Lott told them not to bother bringing it to the senate holy chambers because they didn’t want anything to do with it. The democrats had earlier whined that he should be merely reprimanded… made to stand in the well of the senate while people shook their fingers and scolded him for being so naughty. When you’re dealing with a sociopath there’s nothing you can do or say that would affect them. Like a mass murderer standing before a judge, staring, cold as ice, no feeling whatever. The GOP only got 47 votes to convict. They lost a number of their own party. I can’t recall, but I’d be willing to bet these two both voted no:

Deliberations in the Menendez trial continue today. They cannot come to a decision on any of the 12 counts against him. My prediction: there’s a democrat plant on the jury who will not vote to convict on a single charge, regardless of the evidence. The jury will hang, a mistrial will be declared. This smarmy little punk will strut back into the senate chambers to a standing ovation from his buddies. He’ll proudly announce: “They didn’t lay a glove on me!!”

Jury Deadlocked in Democrat Sen. Menendez Corruption Case, Deliberations to Continue


Trump White House officials are considering replacing Jeff Sessions with Judge Roy Moore, installing the Attorney General back to his former Senate seat.


The Daily Caller reported a DOJ official and another source close to Sessions both shot down the idea that the attorney general wants to return to his Senate seat.
Sessions has made noises about appointing a second special counsel to investigate the Clintons and Uranium One.

My money says it will not happen and he wants to remain AG so he can better protect his democrat colleagues.

I find it depressing thinking of how many hours we spent doing research at the library for term papers, doing math problems where the teacher demanded that you SHOW YOUR WORK. All that knowledge, all that discipline. Nowadays any 12 year old can be just as informed by googling every damn thing they need to know. No muss, no fuss. I recall some college snowflakes demanded they be given their final exams to take home and work on where they can get all the answers and simply copy and paste. No imagination or skill necessary. There’s an awful lot of people on the internet, hiding behind their monitors, who pretend they know sheep shit from apple butter, when they’d be exposed as babbling morons without Google to give them all the answers.

This is JJ Watt,defensive end for the Houston Texans.

If you want to donate to JJ Watt’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund:

Kaepernick is the piece of garbage that started the whole kneeling for the National Anthem last year. The league did nothing about it and it has festered this year until viewership dropped precipitously. And he still doesn’t have a job.

GQ Names Kaepernick ‘Citizen of the Year.’ Seriously.

The best part of this editorial tongue bath is the “ten-person team of his closest confidants” who briefly tell readers just how awesomely woke and caring and brave and caring and righteous and caring this journeyman QB-turned SJW all-star really is.

4 Pete’s Sake: Monday, November 13

It is at once sickening and maddening that when anything happens you know exactly how the left/media will react.  The only reason the democrats have remained a viable political party for as long as they have is they turned our schools into indoctrination centers turning out socially engineered automatons who have no knowledge of America’s history and are barely capable of independent thought.   They only see the headline in any story and accept whatever they are told without question.

Someone once said the ill-educated are more easily commanded.

You just knew once this woman came forward making accusations against Judge Moore, an honorable and Godly man, that the media would grab it like a coyote grabbing a dead ground squirrel and rub their noses in it to spread the smell.  The newspapers and airwaves were blitzed with scurrilous accusations that many people believed, even if the facts were made up from whole cloth.  Meanwhile there’s a trial going on right now of a senator charged with 22 counts of corruption and sex trafficking. No one has heard a word of it. The difference is the senator has a ‘D’ after his name and that makes all the difference,since they are held to no standards of morality.

CtH: I mentioned the Menendez trial and Dearest had literally never heard of it.  He likes to listen to Rush and Laura Ingraham, so is usually up on this stuff, but he’s been really busy lately.  (Hurrah for the Trump Economy!)

The DC Swamp is an exclusive society that does not accept outsiders. They despise Donald Trump for invading their little clique and want to deprive him of anyone who would not sell him out. They are furiously attempting to ruin Judge Moore and can only do it with the complicity of their republican co-conspirators.

McConnell Implies He May Not Seat Roy Moore if He Wins Election

RINO swamp creatures such as Mitch McConnell are so afraid that Roy Moore will win the Alabama Senate seat that they are pulling out all the stops to block him.  And to hell with the voters.
Republican senators and their advisers, in a flurry of phone calls, emails and text messages, discussed fielding a write-in candidate, pushing Alabama’s governor to delay the Dec. 12 special election or even not seating Mr. Moore at all should he be elected. In an interview, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, declined to say whether he would agree to seat Mr. Moore should he win.

Would the Senate invoke Article I, Section 5, clause 2, to “expel” Senator Roy Moore?

[CtH: I’ve seen stories about how Democrat senators have no intention of ousting Menendez EVEN IF HE’S CONVICTED!]

The WaPo article does not say how WaPo found these specific women, it only says it heard general rumors:

“While reporting a story in Alabama about supporters of Moore’s Senate campaign, a Post reporter heard that Moore allegedly had sought relationships with teenage girls. Over the ensuing three weeks, two Post reporters contacted and interviewed the four women.”

Alabama is a pretty big state, it would be interesting to know how WaPo identified four women out of millions for a story that has not been uncovered by any of Moore’s many prior political opponents.

Let’s hope more evidence comes out that sheds light on who is telling the truth, and that it comes out before the election.

John McCain @SenJohnMcCain

The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of.  1:44 PM – Nov 9, 2017

[CtH: Yo, Mitt.  Would you have stepped aside if Democrat operatives had made up crap about your past behavior?]

Lindsey Graham Calls for Roy Moore to Step Aside but Defends Bob Menendez
All of the ALLEGATIONS against Moore date from the late 1970s and early 1980s — more than 30 years ago.

Compare this to the allegations against New Jersey Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez, who is ON TRIAL for corruption and sex trafficking.

Lindsey Graham says Moore should be dealt with “harshly”, but that Menendez is an “honest” and “honorable man.”

Judge Roy Moore: Establishment Republicans, Democrats, Washington Post May Have Colluded in Smear

Well I think they should see it how it really is, and that’s 40 years I’ve been in the public eye and serving as a deputy prosecutor—as a judge, I’ve been a chief justice twice. I’ve run a Foundation for Moral Law, and now after 40 years—four weeks out from an election, not even mentioned in a primary, they bring charges and try to back them up with other things that sound bad?

Moore refused debate because of Dem rival’s stance on ‘transgenderism’

“The transgenders don’t have rights,” Moore said Wednesday during a press conference. “They’ve never been denominated as having rights by the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Moore also attacked Jones Wednesday for supporting allowing transgender individuals to serve in the military.

ABC’s Raddatz Disgusted by Skeptics of Allegations Against Roy Moore

On Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Martha Raddatz used her analysis to express her frustration and contempt for such people. “I don’t really know what those voters are waiting for,” she huffed.

Raddatz was dumbfounded that there were people who didn’t believe the allegations. And her contempt was visible as she talked down to them and about their way of thinking:

But I think, generally, you hear, you know, we don’t know and it was 40 years ago. Sort of the things that Roy Moore was saying. That “if,” “if” he did that. And I don’t know really how you take this further. You’ve got four women on the record who The Washington Post sought out.

CtH: Let’s ask Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, Carolyn Moffet, Christy Zercher, Eileen Wellstone, and Sandra Allen James about all the support people like you gave them, shall we, Martha?

Van Hollen Won’t Say Whether Menendez Should Step Down if Convicted By Jury

[CtH: I used to have such high regard for George and Barbara and George and Laura Bush. So far, Laura hasn’t (to my knowledge) done anything to tarnish that. But I heard that some years ago, Barbara said Sarah Palin should shut up and go back to Alaska. I hoped it was just a scurillous rumor. But now it seems the Georges are bad mouthing Trump. I was impressed during all those years they did not stick their noses into public affairs. So WTH are they doing NOW, shooting off their mouths about a REPUBLICAN president?! I’m so disappointed.]

We Persevere

Because we must. For two days I’ve been incapacitated by some kind of bug. Chills, fever, chest congestion, post nasal drip, etc. It usually happens when there’s a drastic change in the weather. When I was a smoker it happened several times a year. Now it just takes a couple days of whining to my wife and trying to get a little sympathy (usually doesn’t work; she just comes up with the standard “If men had to make babies there’d be no babies because we’re all such wimps.”) Fortunately, since I’m retired I don’t have to work every day while I’m sick. I can just sleep and overmedicate, as most men do.

[CtH: We are grateful you are back on your chair, if not totally on your feet yet. <3]

I'm just so sick of the usual suspects who call themselves republicans jumping all over Judge Roy Moore. The NRSC has cut off his funds, they say even if he wins they want nothing to do with him. What is probably the most maddening thing to me is how intense the media whores bear down on people they want to destroy, yet have not breathed a word of the senator on trial for corruption and sex trafficking… and won't. Still, I read this morning a television station in Alabama went out to do man-on-the-street interviews and couldn't find a single person who believed Moore did anything wrong.

[CtH: They only apply "believe the victims" when the alleged perp is a right-winger.  Women accused Bill Clinton of rape; Hillary called them lying floozies and the left nodded and yawned. Anita Hill accused Clarence Thomas of saying something suggestive umpteen years before, in a place where others heard whatever it was he said and where neither she nor they made anything of it at the time.  The left went berserk.  He wasn't fit to serve!  Bring out the tar and feathers.  Grrr.]

Alabama TV Station Can’t Find a Single Person Who Believes Vicious WaPo Hit Piece on Judge Roy Moore

None of the respondents according to Walsh told her they believed the Post’s reporting.

“It’s hard to believe the events that transpired yesterday,” Gordon Fluker of nearby Wilsonville, AL said to Walsh about the Washington Post report.

Fluker’s response was the standard according to Walsh.

“Out of all the voters we spoke with Friday in Columbiana, we didn’t find one voter who believed the Washington Post report about Moore,” she said.

NRSC Drops Roy Moore After Child Molestation Allegations
Now, the NRSC is no longer listed as part of Moore’s joint fundraising committee. The committee still includes the Moore campaign, the Alabama GOP, and the Republican National Committee. (For now.)

Many prominent Republicans, including Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), and President Donald Trump have said that if the claims against Moore are true, they do not think he is fit to be in the Senate.

[CtH: But Democrats are saying that, even if Menendez is convicted, he shouldn’t lose his senate seat!]

Poll: Post-Moore Scandal, Alabama All Tied Up
The survey conducted by Opinion Savvy and commissioned by Decision Desk HQ shows Moore and Democrat Doug Jones tied at 46 percent. The poll surveyed 515 likely voters Thursday and has a margin of error of 4 percent. Eighty-two percent of voters said they were aware of the allegation that Moore had a sexual encounter with a 14-year old.

Republicans float pushing back Alabama special election

Some party members are reportedly considering getting Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) to move the date of the Dec. 12 special election to early next year, according to The New York Times. Based on Alabama law, it’s too late to remove Moore’s name from the ballot.

Republicans Say Moore’s More Trouble Than a Senate Seat’s Worth

Roy Moore could do more damage to the GOP brand than an Alabama Senate seat is worth.  That’s a major concern for Republicans as Moore tries to weather allegations, reported by the Washington Post, that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl in 1979 when he was 32, and others in the GOP try to figure out how best to handle the political bombshell.

CNN: Why Voters Are Standing by Roy Moore
“The Obama-Clinton Machine’s liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I’ve EVER faced!” he wrote. “We are in the midst of a spiritual battle with those who want to silence our message.”
“The forces of evil will lie, cheat, steal — even inflict physical harm — if they believe it will silence and shut up Christian conservatives like you and me,” he added.

One Of Roy Moore’s Accusers Worked As Interpreter For Hillary, Biden, Other DemocratsDeborah Wesson Gibson, owner of the interpreting company Signs of Excellence, provided services for Clinton during her 2016 campaign, as well as working with former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden during other events. Photos posted to her company’s social media site show her providing sign language services for Sen. Patrick Murphy and Sen. Bill Nelson, both Florida Democrats.

[CtH: Hmmm … just have to wonder whether (how often?) she was groped by that pig, Joe Biden?  The timing and her affiliation with top Democrats make her accusation stink to high heaven.]

Regular Daily Stuff

Journalists Retell Their Election Night Horror Stories
‘People were throwing up. People were on the floor crying’
“Crooked Media” podcast host and former senior political correspondent for MTV News Ana Marie Cox recalled how some of her friends worried about their future.
“A Muslim colleague of mine called his mother. She was worried he was going to be the victim of violence at any moment,” Cox said. “A colleague who is gay and married was on the phone with her wife saying, ‘They’re not going to take this damn ring away from me.'”
Editor of the New Yorker David Remnick discussed his sudden revelation that journalists need to “put pressure on power,” once Trump was elected.

Trump’s Koigate Is Fake News Spun by Shameless White House Press Corps
An otherwise uneventful photo op with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been falsely spun by the White House press corps as a massive diplomatic blunder.
During the photo op, Trump and Abe were feeding koi in a pond below the balcony with spoons.
After several spoonfuls, PM Abe dumps his box of fish food into the pond. Trump follows in kind.

Watch as Donald Trump totally gives up on feeding fish in Japan

CNN Deceptively Edits to Preserve Anti-Trump Narrative

Fox News yanks Tom Steyer ad calling for Trump’s impeachment
What was Fox thinking agreeing to run his ad in the first place, let alone running it during “Fox & Friends,” POTUS’s favorite show? Steyer must have paid them a small fortune to make it worth their while, knowing how Trump himself and Fox’s extremely pro-Trump audience would react.

Menendez could remain in Senate even if he’s convicted
Republicans would likely try to expel the New Jersey lawmaker, but Democrats are expected to delay.
But expelling Menendez — even if he is convicted of a felony — might not be that easy.
Republicans need a two-thirds majority in the Senate to agree to expel a member, which means they would need Democratic votes. With partisan tensions so high — Democrats are still bitter that Republicans denied President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland the seat last year, among a host of other issues — they are in no mood to cooperate with the GOP majority.

Democrat Ted Lieu Walks Out of Moment of Silence for Texas Victims
My colleagues right now are doing a moment of silence in the House of Representatives chambers. I respect their right to do that, and I myself have participated in many of them.
But I can’t do this again. I’ve been to too many moments of silences [sic]. In just my short career in Congress, three of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history have occurred. I will not be silent.

The heroes of Sutherland Springs
Any gun-control measure that is sweeping enough to make a dent in the country’s gun stock and render gun ownership difficult enough to, at the margins, keep firearms out of the hands of psychopaths will inevitably affect law-abiding people as well. In places like rural Texas that would rightly be considered a serious imposition.
Without a gun, if something goes wrong, the only option is sitting and waiting for the authorities to show up.
And the likes of Stephen Willeford and Johnnie Langendorff, obviously, aren’t the waiting kind.

Donna Brazile ACTUALLY CHALLENGED Clinton’s Top Male Staffers To A Dick Measuring Contest

Kellyanne Conway Turns the Tables on CNN’s Brian Stelter
CNN has unfortunately, as Conway correctly notes, recast itself from a network that at least pretended not to be liberal – which introduced an element of balance into its coverage – to one that is clearly over on the left with MSNBC.
So, faced immediately with a predictably hostile line of questioning, Conway fought back and made CNN the issue instead of President Trump.

The obligatory “If you ask for a ‘lawyer dog,’ are you invoking your right to counsel?” post
A few days old but no less shocking with the passage of time.
“This is how I feel, if y’all think I did it, I know that I didn’t do it so why don’t you just give me a lawyer dog ’cause this is not what’s up.” The punctuation, arguably critical to Demesme’s use of the sobriquet “dog,” was provided by the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s office in a brief, and then adopted by Louisiana Associate Supreme Court Justice Scott J. Crichton.
The charges: Aggravated rape and indecent behavior with a juvenile. That’s heavy stuff, not the sort of defendant whom a judge is eager to let walk away on a technicality. What happened here, I think, is that the court went looking for a reason to ignore Demesme’s request for an attorney, fearing that he was a very dangerous offender, and seized on that conditional “if y’all think I did it” to claim that he never unambiguously asked for one
