If this mess shows us anything at all, it’s about our concept of “justice” and just how unevenly it’s applied. I never knew that being an elected official meant you were immune to laws. If I sold info to a foreign government I’d be in prison as soon as the evidence was there. If anything a President or any other elected official should be under MORE scrutiny and tougher rules, not less. It’s driving me nuts.

The only rule here is that no body other than Congress can bring charges, that is designed to keep the President free of partisan harassment from lower courts and private citizens.

But it also means that Congress should act to uphold the laws that it passes or it has voided its own mandate to make them.

But see, it takes a specific type of elected official before you’re free to do anything you wish.

In other words, #IOKIYAR

To be a Republican these days is to be totally and utterly inoculated from consequence, because you are treated as righteous and just by default.

This really isn’t going well for the GOP at all. I honestly didn’t know much about Strzok, other than I think he’s probably a bit of an asshole to everyone around, but the dude is clearly very, very bright, and very, very articulate. He’s also not much for the bullshit “questions” that he’s being asked. He fucking destroyed Gowdy.

So many of these guys claim to be lawyers. Gowdy was supposedly a prosecutor. It’s clear that none of them have a clue how this works, or what to ask.

As a prosecutor, you’re supposed to know what the answers are going to be before you ask the question - everyone knows what the testimony is likely to be (so no surprises, etc.).

Instead, they didn’t realize that Strzok knows the law and policy better than all these guys? They didn’t think that Strzok would cite chapter and verse on not commenting on active investigations because it might affect the outcome?

Strzok refused to do the very thing that helped get us into this mess in the first place: he refused to comment on ongoing investigations (Comey should have followed this same guideline, but instead he indicated activity on Clinton emails - causing media meltdown in weeks before the election and helped throw things to Trump).

GOP wanted to treat the adherence to the rules as a bad thing. They wanted to slap him with contempt? That shows how badly the GOP wants to get rid of the rule of law and protect their own. They don’t care about the law, rules, or even that Trump is a Putin puppet.

They’ve got their own power to protect, and they know that the wheels of justice are grinding ever so slowly towards every last one of these fuckers in the admin (and some outside the admin too).

All the efforts to deflect and project criminality on to Clinton are just that - projection.

It’s past time people realize that the GOP has no interest except their own enrichment and fleecing of America and destroying its values, even to the point of selling out American foreign policy to Russia.

I wonder what it is like behind the scenes in the House. For better or for worse, I suspect there is largely some level of collegiality between senators—they can generally be civil, grab a beer or whatever. I don’t get that impression at all in the House. These guys really seem like they hate each other—and for good reason, with the absolute nut jobs in the GOP.

The problem here is that, as the last couple of decades have continued to prove, projection works. It works excessively well. It’s helped create an impenetrably conservative-friendly media environment that people have been convinced is ‘liberal biased’, it’s created the ever-present assumption that Dems are evil, dirty, criminal sneaks who must be doing something wrong at all times, when Republicans are openly grifting and flouting all norms, and that Dems are the ones who need all the outside help to upend our precious electoral process while they’ve sold their souls to a foreign adversary to do just that.

It works, it works almost every fucking time, because people are more willing to listen to the shittiest of Republicans than the most honorable and effective of Democrats.

and again, we have an electoral system that gives the GOP a majority in Congress even when they do not get an overall majority of votes

Germany has a system by which half their delegates are elected directly and the other half are selected from a list based on what percentage of the votes their respective parties get, that helps their parliament be a bit more representative

A hollow voice says, Covfefe.

Why does everyone assume the Russians “have something” on Repug lawmakers? I see no reason to think they are doing anything against their nature or beliefs.

My response:

I’ve posted in the past the Dallas News article about all the Russian Oligarch money funneled to the likes of Mitch McConnell (and others) for his campaign.

Also, the revelations of the same Oligarchs giving money to the NRA to distribute to Republicans like my own senator Rob Portman to use to buy millions in advertising here in Ohio for his 2016 campaign.

At no time in the history of this country have Republicans been this protective of Russia as they are being investigated for direct messing with our election to the extent they did. I also do not think Republicans in the past would have taken Russian money for their campaigns.

Is that a reason? Maybe not clear…but how do you explain the Republicans activities?

The Republicans have always believed Russia was our sworn enemy. Their current activities surely are against their very nature.

Every fucking show is about competing and stomping the shit out of others. I hate it. All of his friends are turning out to be racist right wing assholes too. And he won’t give any of it up.

He’s supposed to go back to work at the end of the month. I hope so because I can’t deal any more. I do not get it. I’ve found out so much shit, I’m seriously not sure we’re gonna make it til our 25th anniversary next month.

True. But that is an excuse for the Republicans to use now that they need it. The old Soviet Union changed back in the late 80s, but have the new Russians changed enough that the Republicans can use the excuse now?

I think it is pretty clear Putin is doing very Soviet like things under the name of Russia. In fact, until Trump came along, actually even before he was elected, there were many current Republicans that were still fine with thinking Russia was still our enemy.

Now they are too power hungry to get what they want for them to remember.

Now they are too power hungry to get what they want for them to remember.

It is no longer the Old Cold War: Putin is not trying to export a worldwide political or economic ideology to compete with the West.

But he does seem to be out to restore the old Russian Empire, and to restore its key pillars of Autocracy and Orthodoxy.

Don’t forget the tens of millions of ethnic Russians “stranded” in the former Soviet republics. Those are his Sudetendeutsch.

I can even see how Russia might have a claim to the Crimean peninsula; it was part of Russia until 1955 when Khruschev gave it to the Ukraine - for administrative purposes as it was physically cut off by land from the rest of Russia.

But simply occupying it and declaring it part of Russia again was not an acceptable approach. Well, at least not for the rest of the world…

People have become to dependent on it to communicate. No one calls anyone just to talk anymore.

No one knew it was my birthday including my in laws. Not a fucking person could be bothered to remember, including someone who got married on my birthday and I was a bridesmaid for her. I’m close to just shutting it down, but my son is active and I feel like I need to still have to keep a distant eyeball on things. He’s struggling right now.

Could go on for hours yet. 75 members of congress allowed 5 minutes.

5 x 75 = 375 minutes. 375 divided by 60 = 6.25 hours. Add in breaks, grandstanding, the chairs being able to do whatever they want…12 hours at least. 10 PM tonight maybe.

True. But that is an excuse for the Republicans to use now that they need it. The old Soviet Union changed back in the late 80s, but have the new Russians changed enough that the Republicans can use the excuse now?

I think it is pretty clear Putin is doing very Soviet like things under the name of Russia. In fact, until Trump came along, actually even before he was elected, there were many current Republicans that were still fine with thinking Russia was still our enemy.

Now they are too power hungry to get what they want for them to remember.

And that’s why “Russia is the enemy” no longer holds. Also, a lot of the current crop of Repug Congresscritters are Tea Partiers — know-nothings with ideology where they should keep their brains. What do they care about ancient history?

Damn it…got caught in the old thread.

I want to get this response out in this thread to a comment made by A hollow voice says, Covfefe.

My response:

I’ve posted in the past the Dallas News article about all the Russian Oligarch money funneled to the likes of Mitch McConnell (and others) for his campaign.

Also, the revelations of the same Oligarchs giving money to the NRA to distribute to Republicans like my own senator Rob Portman to use to buy millions in advertising here in Ohio for his 2016 campaign.

At no time in the history of this country have Republicans been this protective of Russia as they are being investigated for direct messing with our election to the extent they did. I also do not think Republicans in the past would have taken Russian money for their campaigns.

Is that a reason? Maybe not clear…but how do you explain the Republicans activities?

The Republicans have always believed Russia was our sworn enemy. Their current activities surely are against their very nature.

That’s ok. I got to upding it twice.

Speaking of Joe Arpaio, he’s running. I’ve seen a grand total of two signs of his driving around East Mesa since signs went up on June 29. Here’s one:

I’m still not convinced it isn’t a scam

Kelli Ward and Martha McSally have more signs up than Arpaio. Both Ward and Arpaio have real problems. Arpaio’s problems are obvious. Ward’s problem is that whoever her Dem opponent is has ready made ads of Ward asking McCain to resign so that Doug Ducey, the Arizona guvnuh, could appoint her. I told my brother that if I were to vote in the (R) primary, I’d go with McSally all the way. She’s extremely problematic but she’s not a frothing nutcase like Ward or a pardoned loon like Shurf Joe.

Even, or perhaps especially, the dead were not safe. The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act has generated some controversy, like the repatriation of Kennewick Man, but most people today would scarcely believe the abuses that made the act absolutely necessary. Some of these are detailed in the article but the practice was very common until quite recently.

When I was a child, I saw not one, but two, displays of the remains of Native Americans who had been burned alive in the late 19th Century, living memory at the time. One was in the local museum in Colorado, in a flat topped glass case. It was basically a pile of charred meat but the very obviously human teeth stood out. The other, so help me, was in a tourist trap in New Mexico. I was a little older by then and was able to read the captions fairly well. The victim had some kind of condescending nickname, like “Whisky Jack” or something of that nature, and had been burned at the stake for molesting a white woman. The display was in the same kind of glass topped case as the one in Colorado. My father, who was a firefighter, identified the various parts for us, and pronounced the display authentic. He then raised hell with the management until they threw us out. At one point he offered to dig a grave himself so the remains could be buried immediately.

Later, in about 1966, I went on a field trip to the museum of Texas Tech. They had a display of an “Indian burial site,” with a mummified body surrounded by grave goods in a naturalistic setting. The caption identified the body as an elderly woman, her gray hair very much in evidence. The blankets and beads were described as typical trade goods from the 1850s. I remember thinking, “Goddamn, that could be somebody’s grandmother.”

A play in 3 acts from 2010.

Palin endorses Gosar. He wins.

Gosar hires Palin’s lawyer, Tom Van Flein, as legislative director and deputy chief of staff.

Gosar plagued by staffing turmoil—“Gosar has serious congressional staff issues,” said one Arizona Republican familiar with the operation. “It’s a total cluster.” The emails, written by former staffers while they were still on the payroll, implicate chief of staff Rob Robinson and legislative director Tom Van Flein as the heart of the problem.

Gosar’s decision to hire the pair after he was elected raised eyebrows from the beginning — both men had no prior congressional experience and both had close ties to Sarah Palin, who boosted Gosar’s campaign with an endorsement.

Who couldn’t have seen that coming (but he’s a reader of body language)

If you add the undecided/decline to answer into the Republican side, it bumps them up to over 52%.

If you drop all the Democrats, it makes them 100%.

I’m glad but it’s awful for the Ruiz family that they have to move because of this. It’s not easy to have to uproot your life like that. I’m glad the cops believed the family though.

I’m stunned the Poles have so much faith in him. They’re as vulnerable as Ukraine.

Uh, sure.

Perhaps I didn’t make my point clearly. There may be a lot of folks who aren’t comfortable stating that they’re voting Republican. Until that Blue line edges over 50%, I’m waiting to exhale.

“Some of them were illegal aliens. Why should we waste taxpayer money on rescuing them?”

ICYMI three of the players and the coach are “stateless minorities” and were probably born in Myanmar. There is a growing sentiment that the coach, and perhaps the three boys, should be granted Thai citizenship.

re: #322 MsJ

Pre-Trump, Russians created 48 @Twitter accounts for fake papers—like the Chicago Daily News & the Seattle Post. Most interestingly: they “never spread misinformation” but “posted real local news, serving as sleeper accounts building trust and readership.”

The Post-Intelligencer, universally called the P-I, used to be our other daily paper. Still exists online, I think.
