In first the lawyers, then the judges news:

The Supreme Court has ended a lawsuit against a disgraced Detroit judge who had an affair with a woman whose child support case he was presiding over.

Former Wayne County judge Wade McCree had a sexual relationship with Geniene La Shay Mott while he was overseeing the case between her and her ex-husband, Robert King, in 2012.

But on Monday, the Supreme Courts justices dismissed the action, stating that judges are immune from lawsuits stemming from their judicial actions. They offered no further comment.

The justices decision followed similar rulings by lower courts, including the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, which also cited existing US law that judges are immune from such suits.

22 Foreign Firms funding anti-fracking greens. Kinda makes one believe the suspicions of the 60s anti-war movement. Kinda makes one suspicious of the democrat party's efforts to stop the CIA from 'spying on Americans'. Kinda makes one suspicious of our current government who seems so sympathetic to the environmental groups.

But of course, only ignorant, rednecks believe there are communists in the US working to sabotage the country.

27 reposting from end of last thread

President Obama's 2012 campaign field director has been selected to be a part of a "five-man Obama team" that will run a campaign against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

As Caroline Glick--Israeli journalist and Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center--notes, the far-left Israeli news outlet "for whatever reason... chose not to translate this article in its English edition." Fortunately, Independent Media Review and Analysis did:

Foreign Funding Bankrolls Anti-Netanyahu Campaign -- Flies in 5-Man Obama Team
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 26 January 2015

Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today that the foreign funded organization, "One Voice", is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu's national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections.

One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign's national field director) who will run the campaign out of offices taking up the ground floor of a Tel Aviv office building.

V-2015 is careful not to support a specific party - rather "just not Bibi". As such, the foreign funds pouring into the campaign are not subject to Israel's campaign finance laws.

63 National Review hasn't been a conservative magazine since Buckley died. It is a mouthpiece for an increasingly corrupt and out of touch Republican Establishment.

It's unfortunate that the so-called "conservative" media mouth platitudes about Reaganism but when an actual Reaganite comes along, they run for the tall grass of approval by the elite press.

Yeah, Palin can usually see right trough an issue and lock in on the key points, such as her "death panel" comment. Even if she didn't coin the phrase, she knew it was the essence of everything that was wrong with that bill. We're always annoyed that the GOP can't seem to come up w/a simle, winning messgae for conservatism - and yet she does this often w/her tweets and fb posts.

I haven't seen any of the speeches, but I would prefer Palin not run, instead continue as an outsider endorsing candidates (like Cruz), because she can draw fire from the MSM.

87 Even if Palin's speech was as bad as some believe....so what? She's given many a memorable speech, and the idea that one speech means she's over is a delusion on NRO's part. Bad enough that not enough of the right stood by and did nothing while the left launched smear after insane smear...but now they have to team up with Andrew "Captain Uterus" Sullivan in smearing her as well?

Posted by: KngFish at January 27, 2015 08:41 AM (t0+u1)

88 Palin may not be presidential material, but like it or not she has far more influence with the base than most politicians. Just as surely as there is much palin love, there is quite a lot of palin hate (on our side). You would think a women who was instrumental in many GOP victories in 2010 and 2014 would be treated better. But obviously that is not the case.

95 I haven't seen any of the speeches, but I would prefer Palin not run, instead continue as an outsider endorsing candidates (like Cruz), because she can draw fire from the MSM.

Posted by: Lizzy at January 27, 2015 08:35 AM (ABcz/)


I agree. Like the send headline on the dump says, people have moved on (I didn't read it yet, but I assume that is what it means). There is no way she could win. She was destroyed. It's just "cheesy" if I can borrow the one of the new meme's floating around for the NRO to use her name for the sake of click-bait. (I really would hate to think it is Palin Derangement Syndrome, aren't they big boys and girls over there?)

You know what's worse than Palin?

Jeb supporting amnesty and/or common core.
Bush supporting amnesty and/or common core.
Mitt redux.

That's worse to me, because they might be running.

Posted by: Bandersnatch at January 27, 2015 08:40 AM (1xUj/)


Probably meant the potential for 30 foot snow drifts. That's my guess, that she is too stupid to know that a snow drift is not related to how much snow will fall. Of course even that sounds too stupid to be correct.

99 Biggest problem with Palin is that she resigned as governor after the 2008
election to become a conservative media star. She should have stayed
on, fought the Dems in her state and gained more government experience.
The fact that she was being harassed by the Dems was unfortunate but
was an opportunity to show how she would have dealt with the leftist
weasels if she ever were elected president. When she resigned it was
the end of her govt. career as far as I was concerned.

Sadly, just like the tea party brand, her reputation has been destroyed by the liberal lunatics.

Reading about sun-tan-man and turtle's race to out elbow each other to claim the cheese eating surrender monkey trophy makes me want to puke. Say what you want about Palin, but I'd take her over the pathetic squishes any day. They hated Reagan too.

126 Cooke, and to a large extent Ace, just can't stand the attention Palin gets. She recognizes that the enemy is the press in most of it's forms.

Cooke lies awake at night convinced he's the deepest thinker on the right and being so, he should have throngs of admirers. It's his fantasy that people should hang on every word he says or prints, fawning over the complexity of thoughts.

The trouble is, he's never actually done anything. If he had shown courage and integrity by giving up a high paying position to out corruption in his own party, perhaps people would give him the "cult" recognition some afford to Palin. It is a telling sign that he fells the need to attack her in a target rich environment of leftists.

What is the special hatred that keeps bubbling to the surface?

The thing that always stuck out to me about Amy Winehouse was how hilarious the media found her horrible mental illness to be (ha!

I continue to thoroughly enjoy watching her send the leftards into frothing spasms of uncontrollable rage over posts on social media, but I'm afraid that unless this is her 1964 "You won't have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore" moment this probably marks The End of Palin's political career.

145 Since sons of liberty is on let me offer this thought. Palin is more Sam Adams and Patrick Henry than John Adams or Washington. Someone needs to stoke the fire of liberty.

When has Charles BF Cooke ever launched into a

against the likes of Hillary!, Fauxcahontas, or even

Preezy Cakeboy?


The answer would be.....Never.

And that tells you all you need to know.

So, she gave a bad speech.

Both King Putt and Cat Lady Clinton have given terrible rambling speeches before.

Did Charles BF Cooke launch into them?

No, he did not.


It's simply that Palin is too déclassé, dear boy.

Wouldn't do to have that sort of person representing us now, would it? Imagine, she might use the salad fork to eat her meal! Oh my, get me a fainting couch!


Meh, these ckufing ckufs. Yes, do the Democrats work for them. By all means.

I like Palin. I think she would've been a far better President than TFG or Senile McCain.

Her time is past for that due to the hit job the Dims did on her.

But, is it too much to ask that the Charles BF Cooke's, who are theoretically on our side not join in,

or at least turn equal venom on the Democrat side?

162 In one case a Total Call agent used someone else's food stamp card to provide eligibility for a CBS4 producer. On another occasion another Total Call agent said it would be perfectly fine to use a friend's food stamp card to establish eligibility and obtain a free phone.

In a letter to CBS4, Total Call has now responded saying, "Total Call Mobile is outraged by the unacceptable actions shown in the broadcast. The broadcast depicted both agents and applicants seeking to improperly participate in the Lifeline program. They were both engaged in fraudulent activity ... to enroll in the Lifeline program among other improper actions."

The company said based on the CBS4 report it would be providing evidence of wrongdoing to "the appropriate governmental authorities. Regarding the incorrect or improper statements by agents that were brought to our attention in your broadcast, all of the agents that were distributing for Total Call Mobile have been identified and their access to our system has been permanently blocked."

It will do nothing to sway her current supporters and it is not necessary for the rest of us. All it does is make her a martyr. Very unhelpful.

Moreover, Palin is not the only pol, past or present, to have enthusiastic supporters who sound like silly schoolgirls or, in some cases, teenaged boys who play D&D. So I am finding this to be quite irritating.

169 It can be every bit as intense and symbol-driven ("you're not
criticizing one woman, you're criticizing rural Americans/evangelical
Christians/long-haired women/whatever") as the attacks.

...types the woman who goes ape that you're attacking all gays when you point out the link between pederasty and homosexuality and want it punished severely.

It's a no win for me because no matter how negative the article on Hillary you will claim it's not as bad as what he wrote about Palin . It's funny to me because I can pull up just as many 'ad hominen' articles by conservatives on Romney , Bush , McCain etc but those seem to be okay.

Posted by: Bob Belcher at January 27, 2015 09:21 AM (cNJvW)



It's not a "no win"-

You made a claim. Back it up.

Show me one article....hell, I'll even make it easy for you-

show me one paragraph that Cooke has written that displays the visceral hate and venom of the Palin article.

I'll be honest in my assessment,

you be honest in your claim.

Biggest problem with Palin is that she resigned as governor after the 2008
election to become a conservative media star.
---------------

See I don't think there is anything wrong with that, but then I took it as a signal that she had no more electoral ambitions. Which is totally fine, but since I believe that to be the case, idiots like Cooke are basically spending a lot of energy attacking a person who is doing nothing but personal appearances and facebook. So...why are you still obsessed with her then? She's a private citizen, hanging around, doing her thing. That shouldn't invite so much interest.

174 The other exists in the real world. This Hillary is a person who lacks concrete achievements; whose inevitability never quite translates into evitability; whose rhetoric always seems to turn up empty; who has an impressive capacity for saying things that hurt her and her interests; and, most distressingly of all, who becomes instantly less likeable the moment she opens her mouth. - Charles Cooke June 4, 2014

178 One can acknowledge certain shortcomings in Palin, and I did notice how pretty she could be reading Going Rogue, a book which I otherwise very much enjoyed. But Cooke's rant seemed to be every bit as unfocused and wanting as Sarah's speech.

I've noticed for a while a deterioration in his writing. He rarely offers any meaningful insights, but rather is in love with cloying witticisms. I find Williamson to be a far superior writer.

Posted by: Paul at January 27, 2015 09:37 AM (1vxz6)

179 I get the (probably insane) feeling that Palin's goal is to draw fire away from the "serious" contenders for the foreseeable future.

Oddly enough, I also think that's what Mitt is doing.

But ... Jeb -- he actually thinks he's a contender.

181 Environmentalist groups 'bought by Big Russian Oil'

A shadowy Bermudan company that has funneled tens of millions of dollars to anti-fracking environmentalist groups in the United States is run by executives with deep ties to Russian oil interests and offshore money laundering schemes involving members of President Vladimir Putin's inner circle.

One of those executives, Nicholas Hoskins, is a director at a hedge fund management firm that has invested heavily in Russian oil and gas. He is also senior counsel at the Bermudan law firm Wakefield Quin and the vice president of a London-based investment firm whose president until recently chaired the board of the state-owned Russian oil company Rosneft.

In addition to those roles, Hoskins is a director at a company called Klein Ltd. No one knows where that firm's money comes from. Its only publicly documented activities have been transfers of $23 million to U.S. environmentalist groups that push policies that would hamstring surging American oil and gas production, which has hurt Russia's energy-reliant economy.

187 Palin is a reminder of what the GOPe will allow the left to do and in some cases actually join the left.

She's over and we all know that - but she is a reminder to not let the next star of the party get railroaded by the left. That's why she still gets support - not for her career... but for the next target's career and chance to actually fix this country.

Swing and a miss.

Here's why- that paragraph contains no ad hominem venom at all.

There's no equivalent comparison of Hillary! to a famous drunk and drugged up junkie singer.

Nor the implication throughout that she's a drunk who needs to sober up or anything of similar hate.

No implication that Hillary! doesn't possess the brains, is too stupid, etc.

The example above is negative but it's all about Hillary!'s process of being Hillary! and how that fails-

it is not a vicious ad hominem attack on her character and Palin as a human being.

Try again.

Find an out and out ad hominem attack on Hillary!, Fauxcahontas or TFG by Cooke-

or admit you're wrong.

There's no shame in being wrong.

196 Cuomo said on Monday that "there is a pattern of extreme weather that we've never seen before" - reiterating his comments in the wake of hurricane Sandy, when he said that "anyone who says there's not a dramatic change in weather patterns is probably denying reality."

What we got in the last 24 or so hours is a perfect metaphor for the entire AGW consensus.

First, through the use of computer models, we get a forecast of catastrophic portions. Then, almost nothing happens as the models, now referred to as 'a work in progress', were wrong.

Nothing she has said or done subsequently is altered--a for real example of walking the talk.

The entire affair has engendered ( from me) a considerable degree of contempt for her detractors plus a disinclination to have any type interaction with them.

Don't feel the need to further comment on it, either.

"[former president Clinton ] got a heads-up from the camp of President George
H.W. Bush a few days before former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush made his
surprise Facebook announcement in December that he would "actively
explore' a campaign. The two former presidents have developed a friendly
bond, partly because of their work together on relief for the 2004
Asian tsunami."

I know Jeb can't win because of his last name, and the Base deeply distrusts Christie (which I don't blame after his partying with Obama before the election.) Just because you can point out how lame the Donor Class faction picks are doesn't mean Palin is now a viable option.
