Every time I see one of these Trump thumbs up pictures, I wonder how much everyone in the photo hates having to take a picture like they’re a 12 year old who just finished a little league game?

If Trump is a mob boss, Fredo Corleone is the fucking Godfather.

This Comey book that’s coming out: Anyone know how — or even if — it addresses reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails in the final days of the campaign?

This is basically what would have happened in the Godfather if Michael had been killed in action instead of just wounded.

I’m sure it will. But the story was pretty straight forward: the Anthony Weiner investigation showed some possible Clinton emails on his laptop so they reopened the investigation to confirm. The smarter thing would have been not to announce it, so maybe/hopefully there will be some discussion on that point, but I’m guessing we won’t see anything special.

I hope Comey addresses why he publicized the reopening of the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails just before the election but said nothing about the fact that the FBI was investigating Trump at that time.

I still think Mueller (and probably Rosenstein at some point) is just going to say “fuck it, issue the subpoena.”

It’s going to be another US vs Nixon type case. And regardless of their politics the Supremes are going to come down 9-0 saying that the president has to abide by the subpoena because it’s technically issued by a co-equal branch of government as in: them, the courts.

Cohen is apparently going to plead the 5th in the Stormy Daniel’s case:
rawstory.com

“Well, we’ve learned moments ago — within the last two hours — that Michael Cohen will be filing a motion tomorrow in our case, an emergency motion, to stay or temporarily stop our case and the grounds for that motion are going to be that it is his intention to plead the 5th amendment against self-incrimination if our case goes forward, in light of potential criminal jeopardy that he finds himself in,” Avenatti revealed. “So, this is a stunning development.”

Which is a bold strategy Cotton.

And I don’t understand yet how it affects the documents that Stormy Daniel’s lawyers have subpoenaed.

One well know pundit (who’s name I can’t remember) said that Comey’s book will basically say what a saint Comey is. I’d like Trump to get dumped on like crazy in the book, but I’m not at all motivated to go buy it and read it.

This morning, I asked one of my conservative coworkers (and most of them are at my government contractor job) what he though of Ryan not running for reelection. The response: “All I read was the headline about it.” That’s all it registered for him.

We did agree on one thing, that Ryan probably won’t have to work too hard to get a job.

I thought the NYTimes screwing up a basic fact about the Holocaust (they wrote Hitler was democratically elected) in an article about how Americans don’t know basic facts about the Holocaust was the most NYTimes thing ever.

But then they changed the story without issuing a correction or making any mention of it, so now it is even more NYTimesy.

That’s more or less where I come down on Comey.

I don’t think Comey alone cost Clinton the election (just as I don’t think the butterfly ballot alone cost Gore the election), but like a holding call late in a football game, or a missed free throw in the last minute of a basketball game, it’s easy to put all the blame on it.

Even had Clinton won, the fact that someone like Trump COULD HAVE WON would have been sufficient to show how fragile that hold is.

Trump getting elected, and everything that has happened since is that point being driven home with a 9# sledgehammer. Indeed, his election and everything since has been us losing hold on our democracy.

It’s more of a psychological thing. We put more value on what statisticians would call “high leverage” situations. Those high leverage situations are usually late in the process/game/campaign. And so we tend to pay more attention to an “October Surprise” than we do the voter registration and engagement events in February or June.

Alone? No. But take away Comey, or take away the butterfly ballot, and the election result changes. Sure, miscalculations by both the Clinton and Gore campaigns were part of allowing it to get close enough that something as small and stupid as Comey’s letter or the butterfly ballot could change the result. But in both cases, there are a ton of other factors that pushed it close enough.

Still, I think it’s close to a certainty that those two things pushed each election over the edge.

Yep, but what if the MSM hadn’t spent the entire campaign obsessing over Clinton’s emails so that their coverage was “balanced”? Then maybe it wouldn’t have been close enough for the Comey letter to matter.

I’m probably misunderstanding this, and so I’ll seek your forgiveness in advance, but I personally believe a significant percentage of human beings decide their vote on a whim at the last minute. I myself have done this in the past. A significant percentage of people do not follow politics on a daily basis. They vote on how they “feel” at the moment of marking the ballot.

Therefore, respectfully, I don’t think Comey’s action in this regard should be dismissed “as a bad holding call at the end of the game.”

It didn’t even have to be that. Momentum plays a huge role in things like voter enthusiasm, which drives turnout. Before the Comey Letter came out, Clinton had momentum. She’d come off of 3 great debate performances, and there was the Access Hollywood tape. The Comey letter caused a lot of people to revert to the old ‘Clintons are corrupt’ mindset, as well as firing up the Trumpkins who wanted Clinton’s blood. That’s enough of a change in the dynamics to lose 77,784 votes in PA, MI, and WI.

There’s always a decent amount of undecided voters in very election (I’ll admit that I walked into the voting booth not knowing who I’d vote for, or if I’d leave that line blank). Most of the literature I’ve read suggests that most people make a decision fairly early and stick with that choice. It’s possible that there were some people considering voting for Clinton that chose not to vote (either voting for another candidate or leaving the line blank) because of the Comey letter. But without seeing more data, I don’t have any idea how big that population was.

A man of great integrity wouldn’t have selectively leaked the renewed email investigation while keeping the Russian election meddling investigation secret. Especially when all it ended up taking to prove the Weiner / Abedin laptop didn’t contain any unknown emails was essentially a grep comparison between the two databases.

- Negative coverage for Clinton Foundation
- Overblown coverage of the email server
- Free media for Trump
- The DNC emails impeding the usual healing of hurt feelings in the supporters of the loser of the Primary
- Podesta emails, which nobody can now recall, reminding people that they think HRC is corrupt.
- Obama’s decision not to be more forthright about the Russian interference in the election
- The NYT’s ‘No Connection with Russia’ headline.

And one of the BIGGEST - the assumption that Clinton was going to win anyway.

Trump’s allies worry that federal investigators may have seized recordings made by his attorney

President Trump’s personal attorney Michael D. Cohen sometimes taped conversations with associates, according to three people familiar with his practice, and allies of the president are worried that the recordings were seized by federal investigators in a raid of Cohen’s office and residences this week.

Cohen, who served for a decade as a lawyer at the Trump Organization and is a close confidant of Trump, was known to store the conversations using digital files and then replay them for colleagues, according to people who have interacted with him.

“We heard he had some proclivity to make tapes,” said one Trump adviser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. “Now we are wondering, who did he tape? Did he store those someplace where they were actually seized? . . . Did they find his recordings?”

Long Beach doctor arrested after allegedly sending lewd photos to undercover officer posing as teen

Los Angeles police have arrested a Long Beach physician who allegedly sent a lewd photograph to an undercover officer posing as a 16-year-old girl on the internet.

Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Human Trafficking Unit arrested Jonathon Ellis, 35, after he contacted the undercover officer and sent her a sexually explicit image, the department said in a statement.

re: #58 Big Beautiful Door

BTW, I agree with both you and Belafon that the Comey letter probably tipped the election, and Comey should never had sent it, but the MSM set the stage by “balancing” their coverage to make it appear to a lot of people that there wasn’t a great deal of difference between Trump and Clinton when in fact they had to know there was a vast chasm between them.

Actually we have no clue on how close the election would have been if Comey hadn’t sent the letter. It is possible that it could have been a Clinton blowout.

That said, I know of BernieBros who were poisoned well before the election. Some of that was due to Wikileaks; some to Bernie. There were many deliberately bad actors out to destroy her and, as others pointed out, the MSM was a willing partner in damaging her.

re: #15 KGxvi

I still think Mueller (and probably Rosenstein at some point) is just going to say “fuck it, issue the subpoena.”

If we’re doing predictions…….Mueller will want to play it safe and avoid anything that could be seen as overstepping what he is legally allowed to do, for as long as possible while he has other moves to make, and those are likely to get him where he wants to get to get to anyway.

Mueller is rolling up the people around Trump either getting guilty pleas as part of plea deals, or apparently having enough evidence against them (before actually seizing their documents) to be able to persuade multiple judges to issue warrants that override the client attorney privacy.

At this point, what would be the point of interviewing Trump, other than trying to get him in a ‘gotcha’ moment of lying to the FBI? Although that should theoretically be enough to get him removed from office, I doubt that the Republicans in congress and the senate would actually do anything that could be dismissed as “pure entrapment by the FBI”.

Mueller can continue getting plea deals and evidence to convict all of the people around Trump without creating a showdown.

At some point he’ll either have enough evidence to lay charges against Trump or decide at that point that the risking a showdown over an interview is required, and so worth the risk.

1) “hasbara” - a hebrew word meaning ‘to explain’, that in modern israel has come to mean casting israel in the best possible light by, essentially, whitewashing. but in the anti semite internet troll community any challenge to them, even if the state of israel is nowhere to be found in the issue at hand, draws the reflexive response “you hasbara troll!”

2) how to be both a bible-believing “christian” but at the same time think jews are the scum of the earth: well, it turns out that the real enemy is not all jews, but almost entirely ashkenazim (like myself). and according to them, ashkenazim are 100% descended from the khazars, the 9th-10th century kingdom located roughly where western kazakhstan is today, whose ruling class famously converted to judaism. if you can ignore the difficulties this popular theory runs into in regard to facts, history, and stuff, then, presto, ashkenazim are not the descendants of the people who wrote the bible. that honor then belongs exclusively to the sephardim, who are, as my correspondant informed me, “less devious”

Trump got 46% of the vote. I’d guess 36% were people who still support him, because they actually want what we ended up with. A lot of the 10% probably figured it was an act, that no successful businessman could actually be as bad as Trump appeared to be, and in fact, actually is.

False investigations eat up time so that evidence can be destroyed and witnesses spirited away, allow you to claim that proper investigations cannot be started because they might interfere, and allow you to look like you’re doing something for the credulous media. See also Nunes, Devin.

Curing patients is bad business.

“Is curing patients a sustainable business model?” Goldman Sachs analysts ask

“[Gilead]’s rapid rise and fall of its hepatitis C franchise highlights one of the dynamics of an effective drug that permanently cures a disease, resulting in a gradual exhaustion of the prevalent pool of patients,” the analysts wrote. The report noted that diseases such as common cancers—where the “incident pool remains stable”—are less risky for business.

To get around the sustainability issue overall, the report suggests that biotech companies focus on diseases or conditions that seem to be becoming more common and/or are already high-incidence. It also suggests that companies be innovative and constantly expanding their portfolio of treatments. This can “offset the declining revenue trajectory of prior assets.” Lastly, it hints that, as such cures come to fruition, they could open up more investment opportunities in treatments for “disease of aging.”

If we’re going to have cures we need the cures to cause other diseases so we can keep our profits up.

She said they broke up their group when they started getting a whole bunch of wingnuts coming to the group who absolutely believed them.

re: #180 Anymouse 🌹

I have a hard time telling the dyed-in-the-wool true believers apart from the wryly ironic pretenders among Flat Earthers. Some of their explanations for natural phenomena are so off-the-wall that they seem to be fake.

A flat earth only makes sense if you’ve never traveled much further than a few miles from your home, or have never lived near the ocean and seen ships coming and going. The amount of complexity flat earth explanations require should be immediate grounds for discounting them, if only from a logical standpoint (Occam’s Razor). But flat earthers also subscribe to the CT that “round earthers” have systematically concealed the Truth from everyone for centuries because reasons. IOW logic is unknown to them.

My epilepsy med is on the WHO list of essential medications, and is controlled by a Danish firm. My struggle with it is not cost (it is very cheap, and I get it from the VA anyway), but all the pro-life death penalty states that want to use it for that purpose.

Wow and I thought I had a lot.

I’ve whittled that down to about 40,000 songs on my iTunes. What takes up the most space is all the concert recordings I have from bands like Umphrey’s McGee and Widespread Panic.

re: #226 teleskiguy

I never had issues with it. Then again, I only used it for a few years in high school before I got my own desktop computer for college when I was 18, a Packard-Bell with an Intel 586 processor. I clogged that motherfucker up with thousands upon thousands of Napster files. I think the tower is still at my parents house somewhere.

I was signed for a dozen of those damn things in 99-00. I think every one was replaced within a four month period
