    Here's another good one. I love that Mueller is now a socialist. He certainly looks the part.

    "Any thing seized in an illegal; unconstitutional and clearly, well-beyond the investigative scope of the original, investigation, is completely inadmissible in a Court of Law. What we're witnessing is nothing short of a well-orchestrated and well-funded Socialist-coup."
    It's too bad they don't listen to fake news or they would know that Mueller saw things that were red flags but he didn't have the authority to pursue. His direct supervisor told him it should be handed over to the Federal Prosecutors in NY. I find it ironic that it got kicked over to U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York because that is where Preet Bharara was assigned. After the election Trump had started to try and get cozy with him by calling him personally a couple of times. He indicated that he wanted him to stay on after he became President. The third time Trump called he didn't answer but called back to leave a message that now he would no longer accept calls from him. He was fired the next day. This district of course handles cases in Trump's neck of the woods. The cases Bharara was was investigating at the time was
    1.Trump's HHS Secretary Tom Price for his financial investments.
    2. Bharara was also investigating corrupt Russian businessmen and officials (and a witness for the case was pushed or fell from a window the day before he was set to testify in another court case).

    Things are getting interesting in Panama in regards to a Trump Hotel and the fight to remove the Trump Organization from managing the property. This move was put in motion by the majority owner of the hotel.

    Lawyers for President Donald Trump’s private company warned Panama’s president last month of “repercussions” if he failed to intervene in a legal dispute involving a Trump hotel in Panama City, The Associated Press and The Washington Post reported Tuesday.

    The letter from Trump Organization lawyers is believed to be the first time since Trump’s election that his company directly pressured a head of state to help the president’s business. The ploy raises fresh questions of conflict of interest, as Trump defiantly hangs onto his sprawling business interests while in office.

    Trump lawyers sought the Panamanian president’s help after the majority owner of the Trump International Hotel and Tower — investor Orestes Fintiklis — ejected the Trump Organization as the hotel’s manager under a court order. Fintiklis, backed by police, escorted Trump personnel off the property, stripped the Trump name from the building facade and celebrated by playing a Greek anti-fascism song on a lobby piano.

    I knew that.
    But it's clearly the turn of the right wingers to fix Trump's messes.

    NYT reports that Rod Rosenstein himself approved the raid.

    And ABC News reports that Trump appointee Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is recused from the Michael Cohen investigation.

    Impeachment is looking more and more likely, and the DJI is up 370 points.

    I hope President Varela tells Trump's flunkies to fuck themselves. Trying to pressure a head of state to intervene in a legal matter that has nothing to do with the actual affairs of the country is all kinds of scummy, maybe even illegal. And I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Beavis and/or Butthead (Don Junior and Eric) were behind that scheme.

    Warrant says otherwise.


    They're looking at Manafort being used as a fence to funnel money into the election from Russia.

    Here's a reasonable assessment of Roseanne, both the person and the reboot from...The National Review? Too many good parts to quote them all, so I recommend reading the article...it's interesting. Here is one bit though:



    I do like this though:


    Trump called Roseanne to congratulate her on the ratings, which is reason enough for me to never watch the episodes we DVDr'd. But also, uncharacteristic characterization aside (there's no way Roseanne the character would vote for Trump), I don't know what normalizes Trump's many forms of bigotry more than ascribing support of him and his beliefs to an icon of your TV-soaked youth.
    I disagree with this. I know people much like the Rosanne's TV family. If they voted for Trump it was either because of a traditional republican single issue ( say guns) vote or a troll vote ( this guys stupid but I'll vote for shits and giggles, thinking Clinton would win regardless).

    Families like Roseanne's, sure. But not Roseanne herself. I could see any of their friends, or even Dan. But Trump is the type of dude Roseanne stood up to in the original run--the type of bully she would take down, or at the very least not give the satisfaction of taking her down. There's no way Roseanne would buy into his bullshit. It is completely out of character.

    MY bad!
