Richard Blumenthal: “I have seen it and I want to re-read parts of it, but my very emphatic opinion is that this set of interviews is at best, most charitably, woefully incomplete. To put it bluntly, it smacks of a whitewash, even a cover up.” msnbc.com

5:15 PM - Oct 4, 2018

If this is accurate, it is very troubling. It suggests that at least parts of the FBI are Trumpified. Of course, it might not be the questions themselves that are the problem, but the fact that the FBI did not follow-up with questioning other people.

My guess is that the White House gave very specific instructions on who they could talk to and about what topics they could talk about. The FBI, and the DOJ as a whole, is part of the executive and as such answers to the president. If the president gives them direction on something, they have to follow those directions (unless the directions are facially illegal). This whitewashing cover up is wholly Trump’s doing, not the FBI. The FBI was used as a tool of Trump’s bullshit.

So how are we protected against a President who is a criminal? Why can’t he just shut down any investigation that displeases him?

re: #15 Hecuba’s daughter

So how are we protected against a President who is a criminal? Why can’t he just shut down any investigation that displeases him?

My last comment was very short, and it probably comes as a shock to a lot of people, so I’ll explain a bit more in detail below the fold

Per the Constitution, “The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.” This is the basis of the unitary executive theory that many on the right (including Kavanaugh) argue in favor of. The truth is, there isn’t a lot of debate in the legal community as to whether we have a unitary executive, because the text is pretty clear that we do. All executive power essentially flows from the office of the president. The debate is mostly in the margins or when dealing with the administrative state.

Executive appointees serve, as the saying goes, at the pleasure of the president. Which is why the president can fire most appointees on a whim. There’s been a few instances when Congress has tried to limited that power - like the Tenure of Office Act which was the underlying issue in Johnson’s impeachment. It was eventually repealed and in the 1920’s when reviewing a case involving a similar law (dealing with the Postmaster General who was no longer considered a cabinet level official), the Supreme Court found the law in that case to be unconstitutional and suggested that the Tenure of Office Act was also unconstitutional.

Now, Congress can vest the appointment power in other officials within the executive branch. But ultimately the people making those decisions are still going to have to answer to the president, and you end up with a Saturday Night Massacre situation.

Nixon tried to end the investigation into his wrongdoing. And members of Congress finally told him it was enough, and if he didn’t resign, he’d be impeached and removed. The Independent Counsel law was created after Nixon resigned. Unfortunately, pretty much everyone hated that law once it went into effect - every president who served while the law was in place was subject to an investigation under it. That’s why Congress let it expire.

And the fact is, we’ve had other times in history when the president acted illegally and Congress went along with it. For example, despite a Supreme Court ruling against the removal of Native Americans from Florida, Jackson allegedly said, “Chief Justice Marshall has rendered his decision, now let him enforce it.”

Ultimately, if Congress is unwilling to serve as a check against the president, the president can do a lot of terrible shit. We’re only as good as our elected officials, and right now, that’s not great.

When the WH and the GOP said no corroboration, what they meant was “no corroboration” for anyone’s story because 2 of the 3 participants weren’t interviewed, and the third probably said he was blacked out most of his high school years.

SCENE: A meeting room. GOP Senators are sitting around the conference table, looking nervous.

SENATOR 1: So… That report, looks pretty bad, yeah?
SENATOR 2: Yeah, I’d say.
SENATOR 3: People will try to kill us if we push this through.
SENATOR 2: Then again, the crazies that keep voting for us will kill us if we don’t.
SENATOR 1: So how do we pull this off?

[Silence for a few seconds, and then:]

SENATOR 2: Hey, wait a minute… What are everyone’s plans this weekend?
SENATOR 1: Planning on catching up on some paperwork.
SENATOR 3: Going back to hide from my constituents while they picket my offices and I pretend to listen.
SENATOR 2: I also heard Senator Daines’s daughter is getting married this weekend and he won’t want to miss it.
SENATOR 1: I … think I see where you’re going with this. So, schedule it for this weekend, then?
SENATORS 2 AND 3 (in unison): FUCK YES!

One of the arguments behind the 22nd Amendment was that FDR was too powerful by his third term. So, that’s part of what saves us. The other thing that saves us is that the presidential election is actually 51 separate elections for electors. It’s a lot harder to turn that many elections into sham elections like we see in many parts of the world. Electors could also “save” us, that was actually closer to the “original intent” that Hamilton and Madison hand in mind when the Electoral College was created. But now electors are basically party operatives, and in several states legally bound to vote per the popular vote.

During the Reagan - Bush years, I recall reading the Handmaid’sTale and then a book by Susan Faluda, Backlash. There was a real fear that our society was regressing, that women were losing our rights, that the environment was under siege. We had a President who was contemptuous of people on welfare, who ignored the AIDs crisis, who launched his 1980 campaign with a states’ rights speech in Philadelphia, Mississippi, who promoted huge tax cuts for the wealthy under trickle-down economics leading to huge budget deficits. It was a depressing time and the 1988 campaign was vicious. But we managed to recover from that.

We are going to get through this too.

When Nixon was president, he looked absolutely invincible, until he didn’t.

When Reagan was president, he got into his second term before his mind left him. But for a time, he looked absolutely invincible.

When Bush the Lesser was in office, he looked absolutely invincible for a while. He wasn’t. Karl Rove came out and bragged about a permanent Republican majority. Didn’t happen.

Maybe he’s not guilty. That’s why you do a full investigation. Even if it takes a few weeks and costs a few bucks. The comparison is just fucking stupid.

Also, the corn tortilla fell apart so I had to use two tortillas to hold the taco together. Does this happen often?

That might be why, every time I have gotten tacos with corn tortillas, they come in twos.

If you make the corn tortillas yourself and use them before they get crispy…

Or you could use flour tortillas, those are soft and generally hold together.

Most of the comments were not supportive of him. Sometimes Stephens really shows insight, other times he reverts to the typical brainless right-wing diatribe. He really misses not being able to support everything a GOP President does; maybe he is trying to weasel his way back into Trump good graces.

re: #54 The Vicious Babushka

Welp, I made tacos even though I have never had a real actual taco to compare it to. This is what it looked like. I took a bunch of leftover roast beef and cooked it up with taco seasoning and a bunch of onions and jalapenos.

It was really spicy (which I like) but I had to eat a popsicle afterwards.

looks good. I would use meat like that for a burrito. Mix in some rice and beans, tomatoes and you have a winner. Serve with the traditional Mexican dessert: PIE.

When Nixon was president, he looked absolutely invincible, until he didn’t.

When Reagan was president, he got into his second term before his mind left him. But for a time, he looked absolutely invincible.

When Bush the Lesser was in office, he looked absolutely invincible for a while. He wasn’t. Karl Rove came out and bragged about a permanent Republican majority. Didn’t happen.

Rule One of Republicans - they always over-reach. Always. And Democrats are always there to clean up the mess.

Washington passed term limits by initiative in 1992, “The Year of the Woman™”, when Patty Murray was first elected Senator. (26 years ago? SMH!) She should have been out after 2004, but these term limits somehow became a dead letter. There was no counter-initiative…I suppose I should look that up.

I think they have to fight, and I will admit, prior to this year, they weren’t great at it. But they have gotten a lot better. I do think there are lines they shouldn’t cross, basically anything that hurts our ability to get back to a functioning Democracy. I think what they have done re Kavanaugh has been as good as it gets.

Republicans in red states keep trying to attack Democratic House candidates for raising money from out of state, but it’s looking an awful lot like Republicans are really just mad that Democrats aren’t giving up and going away. Instead, Democratic candidates are raising some eye-popping amounts of money and threatening a swath of Republican seats, leaving those Republican attacks looking suspiciously like sour grapes.

Attacks like this, from a Texas Republican House candidate: “Every time you see one of those trendy little hipster black-and-white Beto [O’Rourke] signs around this district—that’s from the $10 million he raised in the second quarter, from 221,000 donors came from all over the country, trying to attack Texas values.” What goes unmentioned is that Sen. Ted Cruz had, through the first half of the year, raised a higher percentage of his money from out of state than O’Rourke.

..

Republicans expected 2018 to be rough, but they had hoped the Democratic fundraising would taper off before October. This spring, as Democrats faced dozens of expensive primaries, Republicans hoped that the winners would run out of resources, take left-wing positions and be vulnerable for super PAC attacks that could define them early. In nearly every close race, Democrats avoided those problems.

I think Trump likes the entertainment of watching someone get mad and raise a stink. If Kavanaugh had thrown something at a senator, Trump would’ve loved it even more.

Maybe if the White House staff would plug in some wrestling or some old Bugs Bunny or Animaniacs cartoons, Trump would settle down and quit bothering us.

No Se Hagen Bolas, Jilbertitos, Don Gilbertos, those are names of real Mexican restaurants I go out of my way to eat at when I can in Colorado. If you’re ever in the Denver area just find a place to eat near the corner of Federal and Alameda, the buildings are usually yellow. Thank me later.

See my qualifier. Chipotle is as Mexican as Toxic Hell, which is to say, not even in the slightest.

re: #174 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

Apparently, fight dirty. However, I ascribe to the ancient aphorism: “Never argue with an idiot. They only drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience.”

We don’t necessarily need to fight “dirty”; I subscribe to another ancient aphorism that would be of help:

“Work smarter, not harder”

Because we actually give a shit about people as people, we tend to let emotion cause us to have too many own goals and missed opportunities against the Trumpist GOP; they have their shit down to a science (even as they abhor actual science) like a well-oiled machine many times; we need to be smarter in counteracting that.

I have to admit, that’s one thing I did appreciate about the genuine Mexican chain (if you can call it that; in actuality, it’s two locations run by the same family) in the area. They use genuine Mexican recipes and make their own corn tortillas.

The middle tier Tex-Mex restaurants here in Texas - Rosa’s, Taco Cabana - do that.

A good Mexican restaurant doesn’t even need to make their own tortillas, unless they’re in the middle of BFE; most cities with a sizable Hispanic population usually have at least one company with a tortilla plant that can make then easier and quicker, but just as fresh (fresh “real” tortillas go stale quickly). As long as restaurants sources their tortillas from a local plant that knows what they’re doing, I have no issues with that, because that lets them concentrate on doing their job better, which is to use those tortillas to make good food.

I used to live a few blocks from a place called Beso del Sol that called itself a New Mexican restaurant. Their tortillas were more like really flat hoecakes, but I really liked their food. 45th & Fremont in Seattle if it’s still there.

re: #307 jaunte

I keep thinking of the lyrics from a song called, ironically enough “The way you lie”

Baby, please come back
It wasn’t you, baby it was me
Maybe our relationship isn’t as crazy as it seems
Maybe that’s what happens when a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is I love you too much to walk away though
Come inside, pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don’t you hear sincerity in my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I’m pissed, I’ll aim my fist at the drywall
Next time? There won’t be no next time!
I apologize even though I know it’s lies
I’m tired of the games I just want her back
I know I’m a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I’mma tie her to the bed and set this house on fire
