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!

Oh NO. This is terrible news.

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).

Glad we’ve established that you’re attracted to her. I mean, why else would you spend a good chunk of your waking hours keeping up with the comings and goings of Maxine Waters?

Blaknenship is running on the Trump playbook – drain the swamp, f— the establishment, “Cocaine Mitch,” and thinly veiled racism – in West Virginia. You’d think that would merit Trump’s endorsement, right? To the great people of West Virginia we have, together, a really great chance to keep making a big difference. Problem is, Don Blankenship, currently running for Senate, can’t win the General Election in your State…No way! Remember Alabama. Vote Rep. Jenkins or A.G. Morrisey!— Donald J.

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.

Andrew C. Pope
Andrew C. Pope

I’ll bite.

What experience do you have in federal court that leads you to the conclusion that the “new judge” in the Flynn case will “toss his guilty plea?” Because I’ll say this, as someone who practices is federal court pretty regularly, I don’t think that’s going to happen.

alpha male

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 »

I’m trying to be earnest here and I appreciate the earnest response from you. But what the feds did to Flynn was disgraceful imo. Expand on that, what exactly did they do to him that is so objectionable? How can the feds prosecute a “ making false statements “ case, when the FBI agents investigating the case reported that they did not believe Flynn lied? Because the crime comes down to “did this person knowingly make false statements?” The fact the agents didn’t think he was lying doesn’t undo the fact he was lying. If I tell my boss I’m… 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 »

With all due respect, Noway, I wasn’t talking to you. I was trying to earnestly answer alpha’s question and ask some questions of my own to elicit an explanation for his conclusions. If you’d like to lay out your reasoning in a readily understandable manner, with some sort of citation to either actual evidence or your own personal experience in federal court, be my guest. Until that time, the grownups are talking.

You don’t have to be a lawyer, Alpha, to smell the sickening corruption with everything associated with this Mueller vendetta.

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 »

Mueller made these “show” indictments just garner press. Now one of his targets decides to call his bluff! Hysterical! Discovery!!!’ The Dipsh-t drantically calls for a delay and gets denied!! Lmao!!! Crash 2 is being filmed right before our eyes! God, life is good!!

Andrew C. Pope
Andrew C. Pope

Please, find me some actual evidence to support the contention that these are “show” indictments. I’m aware that Limbaugh apparently talked about this on his show this afternoon, but I’d caution you not to accept legal analysis from a college dropout who has spent his entire time in talk radio.

I ask this in complete seriousness. This blog would be well served with less hyperbole on all sides.

That actually wasn’t a question. It was a statement. And honestly, why do you Libs focus on his not having a degree? He’s really the wrong guy to do that with.

And honestly, why do you Libs focus on his not having a degree? He’s really the wrong guy to do that with. Would you take medical advice from Bert on Q100? Do you think Matt Chernoff on 680 is qualified to give in-depth analysis of federal court proceedings? If not, then why are you relying on Rush Limbaugh, a guy with the same qualifications, the same experience, and – unlike Bert and Chernoff – a well-established political bias? If you don’t want me ripping on Rush for being a college dropout, would you rather I point out how his brain… 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.

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?
