Monday Morning Reads – May 7

Happy Monday, everyone! I’m changing my format for the next few weeks. We will return to normal soon!

Take a look into Melania Trump’s world.

Lobbyist spending reports have come out and they’re better than last year (maybe)!

…hey guys, so this is happening.

Denis O’Hayer is retiring. That’s a huge loss to Georgia politics.

Several of academics have your data from Facebook, but who’s protecting it?

Time. For. VETOS!

Denis O’Hayer is one of the few broadcast journalists that actually fits the title. I have fond memories of the late seventies WGST and its All News format with O’Hayer in the field and Forrest Sawyer in the studio.

I knew his retirement was coming. I suspected as much when he had more morning absences and they started trialing/testing new voices. He is going to be so incredibly missed. Such a consummate and thoughtful journalist. His Political Breakfast segments have been some of my favorites over the last couple of years.

Going to miss him. Hope he pops in often on Emeritus status like Steve Goss (who is also missed).

Keep whistling, Sniv. Trump is gonna put on a full court press this Fall like you’ve never seen. With apologies to Stealers Wheel, they’ll be “Deplorables to the left of me Deplorables to the right, here I am…” Maybe y’all can get AstroGlide by the train car load?

Not that these one note-leftists, who get all their news from Daily Kos or reasonable facsimiles thereof such as the mainstream media, would notice, but the Mueller investigation is beginning to implode before our very eyes.

Among other things, do not be surprised if the new judge in the Flynn case tosses his guilty plea.

First, I am not an attorney. And I do realize a judge tossing a guilty plea is extremely rare. But what the feds did to Flynn was disgraceful imo. Remove the name involved, and the prosecutorial abuse in this case should concern everyone. And the new judge seems to be troubled by it. And I know nothing of who the new judge is or whether he was an R or D appointment. His concerns may well be why he keeps putting off the sentencing. I mean come on. How can the feds prosecute a “ making false statements “ case,… Read more »

Drew, bottom line: the FBI used a bought and paid for piece of known oppo research and lied by omission to trick the FISA judge to issue the warrant. That is a felony. ‘Nuther bottom line: their is indesputable conflicts of interest with the fuc–g kangaroo court that is falling down right before our eyes. The only folks that will perp walk will be Justice Department personnel who are breathtakingly corrupt. Comey and Mueller himself come to mind. Don’t forget McCabe, too. And none of their literally putrid actions would have ever been know in a Hag Administration. All if… Read more »

You’re so invested in this case, you cannot say that anything bad will happen to your side’s efforts. Mountains of conflicts appear from texts to lied Fisa warrents and you just put your hands over your eyes.

A Marine Captain who served with distinction in Vietnam including a Bronze Star with a V (for valor), degree from Princeton, law degree from UVA, and FBI Director for 12 years (nominated by Bush II), gets called a dipshit by Noway. I know who that belittles in my mind. All because he is tasked by the very necessary 3rd branch of our government to investigate a more than hinky reality teevee whore monger who doesn’t understand why he can’t just declare himself emperor. Mueller hasn’t even climbed the ladder to the President yet his squirming like a worm who doesn’t… Read more »

Well Cook is one of the 50 Georgia Counties considered “distressed” in the article Ed recently referenced: “There are 50 “distressed” counties meaning they rank in the worst 10 percent of the country’s counties.” Revenues are likely down from civil forfeitures as well so what’s a sheriff to do? Georgia counties and municipalities have a long history of fleecing Yankees off of I75 traffic and what-the-hey, Canucks have even less rights than the Yankees. Seriously though, this kind of ignorance of the law by supposed law enforcement personnel is inexcusable. Not that any have been offered or even an apology… Read more »

Now imagine this happens to a poor person who cannot call daddy lawyer in Virginia. (Obviously change the Candian license issue to another trivial offense).

This is a huge reason why minorities distrust cops and I don’t blame them
one bit.

Interesting how that dirtbag solicitor tries to back door justify the arrest.

Good.

Now let see how much crowing the GOP does as a accused assaulter and womanizer sits in the White House.

Besides Kellyanne (hypocrite).

Lets see how many people go to jail for this one…my guess is its a great deal bigger than 1. If you think its laughable…you need to broaden your reading material outside of Fox and Breitbart. I know, the real world sucks for you but you live in it so might as well get used to it now

If that’s where the evidence leads, so be it.
This is supposed to be about justice.
The politicians and pundits can play politics with this investigation, but the justice department is supposed to get to the truth, wherever it goes.
But more to your point, even the ridiculously biased House Intelligence investigation couldn’t pin anything on any Dems, so what makes you think an objective investigation would?
