Every lawyer has a whole file of shitty client/shitty case stories. It’s part of being a lawyer. Castor is having one of those cases in front of an international audience.

It is never fun.

Every lawyer has also dealt with an asshole opposing counsel who thinks whatever happened is totally your client’s fault no matter the facts actually are. Those lawyers often are incredibly swarmy bastards that you really want to punch in the face.

A few highlights from the IG report:

*We determined that the election reporting from Christopher Steele played no role in the
opening of Crossfire Hurricane

*However, testimonial and documentary evidence we reviewed established that
Strzok and Lisa Page played no role in the substantive preparation or approval of
any of the four FISA applications, including the Woods process. We did not find
documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation
influenced the FBI’s decision to seek FISA authority on Carter Page.

What’s interesting to note is the “Going too fast” BS only started last week…right around the time that the Repub witness started suggesting that impeachment couldn’t continue unless all the witnesses under subpoena had been forced by the courts to testify. The message seems pretty clear: the Repubs thought Trump would be able to drag this shit out until after the election by forcing every single subpoena to worm their way through the bowels of the courts. By saying that those witnesses are not needed to prove their case, the Dems are totally wrecking the game plan of nimrods like Collins to avoid any votes on impeachment until it’s too late for them to effect the election itself.

I’m concerned that the GOP is not merely gaslighting us, but also they’re gaslighting themselves.

Last month, in a news interview Kevin McCarthy accused the interviewer of ‘making up’ the “though” in “I would like you to do us a favor, though”, and he seemed genuinely surprised that it was really in there - despite this being in the news for weeks at that point, SPECIFICALLY talking about the “though”, because it clearly conveyed conditionality.

This weekend, Mark Meadows denied that Trump had asked for an investigation of the Bidens, even though that was clearly stated in the call summary.

Sure, Meadows and/or McCarthy may be lying, but I’m concerned it’s more like the scene in “WestWorld”, where Bernard reveals that he’s one of the “hosts”, when he looks at something that the human sees, and says, “It doesn’t look like anything to me.”

The break-in happened at ‘SexyLand’ a store in Moorabbin in the state of Victoria over the weekend.

Detectives released CCTV images of a man wearing a balaclava who arrived around 6am on Sunday in a white Ford Transit van.

It is believed the offender gained access to the store using bolt cutters to get through the fence and a fire hydrant to access the store.

He stole a sex doll called ‘Dorothy’ which stands 5ft 5in tall and is valued at 4,495 Australian dollars, around £2,500.

Pondering a potential Biden impeachment, Gohmert said: “We’ve already got the forms. All we have to do is eliminate Donald Trump’s name and put Joe Biden’s name in there, because he’s on video. He and his son. He basically has admitted to the crime that’s being hoisted on the President improperly.”

Former first lady Michelle Obama said in a television interview that aired Monday that she is confident the country will recover from the impeachment battle.
“It’s surreal,” she said. “I don’t think people know what to make of it. But do I think we can come back from it? Oh yeah.”
“We’ve seen tough times in this country,” Obama said during the interview that aired on NBC’s “Today” show. “You know, we’ve gone through depressions and wars and bombings and terrorist attacks, and we’ve gone through Jim Crow, and we’ve always come out stronger. And that’s what we have to continue to believe, because what’s our choice? To ball up in a corner and call it a day? Well, that’s not fair to this next generation that’s coming (after) us that are counting on us to get this right.”
The former first lady offered her assessment while on a trip to Vietnam to raise awareness about the importance of educating young girls.

Graphika, a cyber-intelligence firm, discovered a campaign on Reddit and Twitter to disseminate leaked trade documents ahead of the upcoming elections in the U.K. The campaign is similar to a Russian-linked disinformation effort identified earlier this year. The online effort mostly targets British politicians, celebrities, and journalists with a portfolio of documents appearing to detail key U.S.-U.K. trade negotiations. Ben Nimmo of Graphika said it was not clear whether those behind the campaign were Russian, or just trying to imitate previous Russian information campaigns. Ultimately, said Nimmo, “Influencers, politicians, journalists need to be aware of the fact that they are going to be personally targeted by information operations.”

Feminism is an clever weapon. It makes men to hate their own women.

By portraying women as strong as men, they deprive men of one of their most important roles: protection.

This frustrates men, to the point of anger, and wanting to hurt women as if they were males.

Interesting things to be deducted from this:

1) male frustration leads to anger, and anger to violence. women should not initiate that inevitable and inexorable progression by being strong or independent

2) male-on-male hatred and violence is somehow okay, only “bad” thing is when women step into the crossfire.

We don’t JUST hate Trump. We also hate lawlessness, thuggery, extortion, cheating, lying, misogyny, racism, and a number of other things that used to be unacceptable.

Maybe Dems should offer to call Barr to ask him why, despite the entirety of the GOP believing that there is verified evidence of corruption on the part of Hunter and Joe Biden, why the DOJ has not made a formal request for Ukraine to commence an investigation into such.

I really hate this notion that some how men NEED women…and I’m a dude.

we’ll… a society with 100 women and 5 men has a lot more of a future than a society with 100 men and 5 women.

In fact, a spaceship with 100 women and a freezer full of test tubes can colonize whatever planet we’re sending the ships to. For the future of our species, it’d probably be a good thing if female astronauts drastically outnumbered male astronauts.

re: #325 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

Interesting things to be deducted from this:

1) male frustration leads to anger, and anger to violence. women should not initiate that inevitable and inexorable progression by being strong or independent

2) male-on-male hatred and violence is somehow okay, only “bad” thing is when women step into the crossfire.

3) this guy really needs a blowjob.

Here’s his theme song (it’s not angry, but it’s mean):

Rattlesnake Shake (2018 Remaster)

I borrowed the CD with this song to a very wholesome co-worker who only new about the pop Fleetwood Mac. He got about half way through and then quickly returned it. It was a mean trick.

Me: of course not; if I had my eyes would be red.

The “Varangian” part is a giveaway, too: ISTR it’s basically (shlocky, ahistorical) code for “tough-guy Nordic barbarian warrior”. Which, coupled with the hideous misogyny, and even-worse antisemitism (I feel dirtied just by even clicking on that blog), leads me to believe this guy really may be one of those 400-lb basement-dwellers of popular legend….
