They needed backup for the House investigation by the Rs. Let's say the Rs still investigate. having all this other "stuff" out there and spread by the MSM allows for the conspiracy theory defense. Heck, look at what we know now and people still call it a conspiracy.


But I do believe they weren't going to throw Trump in jail. Just let stuff be leaked to destroy him. Because with a trial, there's discovery. They weren't going to risk anything coming out. So just let stuff drip, drip, drip. Everyone would have bought it, no pushback (because Trump isn't president) and the DOJ/CIA/FBI really blocks release of materials and there's no declassification ala' Grennel & Radcliffe.


The plan was to ruin Trump. Not convict him.

There was also a dossier from Cody Shearer, brother in law of Strobe Talbott, a long time Clinton fixer, State Dept. hump and then President of the Brookings Institution.

I worked for a large farming operation in CA, a few years ago.

I once asked the head of payroll how many employees she thought were ghosts. Off the top of her head, she said, "10%."

By ghosts, I mean employees that were on the books, a check was being cut for them, but, more than likely, they were created out of thin air by the people who ran the crews.

Oh yeah, and the people running the crews also make a good chunk of change cashing checks for the farm workers, because a lot of farm workers don't have bank accounts.

Second, I will add that I caught a real nasty sinus infection though. And I got it shortly after being told I had to wear a mask for hours at work. It's not like I was dragging the mask through cesspits or anything either it was a clean mask that I changed that morning. So the mask crap is not only bullshit but dangerous bullshit.

Second, there are slow tests and fast tests. A lot of labs started to use the fast tests, like 15 minutes fast. But it was decided that some VIPs like politicians and the like should have priority for these so the peasant tests were put on the back burner so to speak. Test places are now telling people that had the "fast" test to come back in for the "slow" test that will only take 3-5 days unlike the "fast" test that can take weeks for the peasants.

With the states going to all-mail voting, America will finally see, at least in battleground states, more votes turned in than voters. Just like we see now in cities like Detroit. Pick-up trucks full of Democrat ballots.

"Never mind", John Roberts will say.

Even if Durham indicts everyone, it will be "forgettabout it" in early 2021.

"SQUIRREL!"

I live in WA state, a full mail in ballot state. Secret ballots? How about voting parties? People gather together and fill their ballots out. Oh, good news, snacks and refreshments are served!

It's so corrupt, seriously, in WA state, why bother?

Stock up instead.

There is a war on right now, and China and our own American ChinaCrat party are winning bigtime.

Now stfu and prove to me that Black Lives Matter, peon.

I am not sure that they talk at all. A couple of years ago, in the Before Times, I was on a business trip. A cute young 20-something girl had the misfortune to be seated next to me. No smalltalk at all (which is fine, an airplane is a captive audience), but barely more than a grunt in greeting. All of the tarmac time, on both ends, she was on her phone on social media. I watched her - openly and without shame, totally in shock and flummoxed. The way she interacted with social media was like nothing I have ever seen. Rapid scrolling, likes or dislikes, delving into comments or clearing. At such high speed that defied belief. She stayed on nothing for more than a moment, and "interacted" with scores of people. And I was not that much older than she was - a decade, maybe, at the outside. It blew my mind. And it made me realize I have no idea how to communicate with anyone younger than me at this point. It is totally alien. And I share a generation with the older part of their cohort.

Since Iselin was modeled after McCarthy and Shaw even defends his publisher boss as a Republican, that means that the hero Senator of the piece was a Republican.

335 I have watched a lot of older games, some of them including the ads. THey run along quite quickly, zipping through innings. You know what the differences were?

-No Instant Replay checking
-No fooling around at the plate and delaying on the mound. Guys came up, the pitch, they swing.
-Proper strike zone called, the high strike included
-No showboating. You hit the ball, you run
-No ad breaks, just the natural time it takes between innings and pitching changes.
-Fewer pitching changes, you relied on your guys to work through tough times.

The game moves right along.

No, more like the 19 from sitting around all day with nothing to do and a full fridge and pantry.

345 Watergate; It's a matter of perspective:

It was about getting Nixon
NO
It was about justice..
NO
It was about a Madam and her girls

346 The Stupid Party needs to adopt a new rule: The Flynn Rule.

We have seen for years that the D's will prosecute any R they can write up a charge against (even if they have to make up a "crime" out of whole cloth read:Flynn ) so the R's need to start playing the same game and toss aside the "we are better than that" crap. Legit crimes, big and small, not the made up ones. If Steele and whomever else was involved in these payments were in violation of tax laws, Charge Them! Try them in a court of law, even if it is DC. Use black prosecutors in DC (surely there are a few in the DOJ) if you are afraid of the D's falling back to the usual race games in court.Let the process punish some of these assholes.

349 Where do I get me a job like that. I could be a great gutter drunk for
5K a month. I promise not to puke (too much).
