Well, it’s Ginny’s link first of all. And second, yor awful touchy. You’re afraid this Lib Collusion scandal has very long legs. Four words: Danbury Minimum Security Prison. LMAO!

I hope it does have long legs. Maybe a couple more committee investigations would help!

I’ll just wait for the Special Prosecutor. Much more effective! Any odds on how long that takes?

On the one hand you have a party and candidate paying for oppo research. That is not collusion.
On the other hand you have adversarial Russians reaching out to support a particular candidate, whose subsequent administration has very clearly and publicly done everything it can to “repay” them. That would be collusion.

Add to that all the contacts with Russia.
On the one hand:
Manafort
Flynn
Junior’s meeting
Tillerson/Exxon/sanctions
Multiple people failing to disclose meetings with Russians

On the other hand you have:
…….

So yeah, bring on another investigation. Even if there are Dems guilty of colluding I would welcome we find that out.

No spyware on pjmedia.com. Pajamas Media has been a leading conservative blog for over 10 years and it is mainstream, not far-right or alt-right or Trumpist like Breitbart or GatewayPundit.

On the Roxbury’s Dudley Dough thing … something like 60% of small businesses fail so blaming their failure on their progressive ideology is a bit of a reach. Also why bash entrepreneurs for innovating and trying something different? Entrepreneurs who try out novel ideas have a far higher failure rate than regular businesses. A lot of them keep trying – and failing – over and over again until they finally get it right. Also the idea that if you pay workers higher wages and train them, you will have a more productive, more loyal and better skilled workforce is precisely… Read more »

“Trump chooses not to deport illegal immigrant wanted for rape, bribery, and kidnapping because he’s a Mar-a-Lago member”

That is an outrage. But I ask you … what are your opinions on deporting illegal immigrants generally?

evergreentree
evergreentree

“I think we should be deporting individuals convicted of felonies and violent misdemeanors in the United States.”

So then you support open borders with unrestricted immigration? Meaning that anyone can come here when they want and leave when they want so long as they do not commit a felony while they are here? I submit that this is – in practice – what you are advocating. If you believe otherwise please correct me.

When are you going to ask how he feels about employers who hire undocumented workers?

evergreentree

1) better border control measures to prevent undocumented border crossings and

Kindly name what these would be. The border is vast – and there is one with Canada too.

2) locating and deporting the individuals that come here and commit felonies and violent misdemeanors.

They would only be deported after they serve their sentence right?

evergreentree
evergreentree

Please no wasted energy on businesses who hire and exploit the undocumented. It is only designed to divert from the fact that the undocumented violate the law by coming and continue to violate the law by staying. It is a law that you disagree with or have little regard for so it is no issue for you when they break it. But the laws that you support and feel are important you wish to see strictly enforced with lawbreakers punished correct? 1. So you oppose deporting people claiming that they should be interdicted at the border. Once they are in,… Read more »

If you ever make a pie using an actual pumpkin (which is how I learned as a child) you know it is much more fibrous -you needed to really stew it down and then mash it through a wire mesh colander. I just steam it and run through a Vitimix or a NutraNinja. You use less liquid when you make it too then the can version.

As to Cheesecake…

Yay! Ask and ye shall receive: A Josh McKoon quote!

“Today’s AP report raises serious legal questions and is troubling to say the least. If it is true, conservatives should have serious concerns about the sanctity of their ballot,” McKoon wrote, adding that it “seriously erodes fundamental trust in our electoral process” at a time of shaky public confidence in the government.

Manafort and Flynn are most exposed of course.
I don’t know how it plays out with the obstruction of justice charges though. Is that hard to prove? Trump basically admitted it.

Noway2016

What are the charges each might face? Manafort? Flynn? I say nothing to do with campaign. Not sure about Manafort but Flynn maybe not being truthful on security paperwork but nothing to do with Trump. Opinion?

This is leverage. Manafort investigations have been on going since 2015 with illegal ties to Russian and Ukraine. That would explain the quickness of an indictment. He also has ties to the Russian banks that were about to tried for money laundering (Banks had ties to Trump and Kushner company projects or funding) by the NY federal AG when he was fired then Sessions settled a month later for a small fine. The New York state AG can also charge Manafort on any banking related issue, since the Russian banks have their US HQ in New York City – Trump… Read more »

An instance where he didn’t follow through from BS through lies to attack.

I feel you, but I think you’re being played. A one sentence response the statement you support open borders in response to discussing deportation is that those that oppose additional gun control think the mentally unstable have the right to purchase guns.

They are taking down statues of Washington and Lee that flank an alter in a private church. Congregations move statuary all the time. The statue of St Frances has been moved 4 times in my lifetime at my home church in Wisconsin. It’s not even in the church anymore, it’s in the lobby of the school. Where is your outrage for St Frances?

From the link: “Everyone’s talking about the civil war in the Republican Party. It seems more like a surrender to us.” — Weekly Standard “And, finally, there’s the fact that, like Trump, many of these people don’t care about policy either. As Michael Brendan Dougherty recently pointed out, the culture-war spats and nasty personal fights are to a very real extent Trump’s true agenda, or at least it’s what people who love the Trump Show love about the Trump Show.” . . Can you ever trust any Republican for whom Trump’s “accomplishments” warrant complicit quiet? And with others there’s no… Read more »

Came across this while completing reading for the day and thought of the preceding Weekly Standard quote:

“I don’t know if you’re paying attention, but internal strife is tearing the Republican Party apart at the seams. It’s like a new Civil War, only neither side is trying to help black people.” —Stephen Colbert
