When Is Crime Criminal?

 

Poor Cletus. He doesn’t have any money. What’s a felon to do?

Cletus goes down to the 7-11 and sticks a gun in Mr. Maloney’s face and says “give me all your cash.” The manager complies, turns over the money, and Cletus walks out with it. It’s December 20, 2020, and Cletus needs to buy a few presents. Everyone understands even if they don’t condone the behavior. Desperate people do desperate things. That’s why 7-11 has cameras.

Ep. 256 – Bestselling Author Lee Smith @LeeSmithDC discusses how the Trump Russia collusion hoax, the bogus impeachment charges, “weaponizing COVID-19”, the coordinated riots laying waste to US cities, the two-tier justice systems, and vote-by-mail election fraud is all part of THE PERMANENT COUP.  Then at @37:00:  Last year #1 New York Times bestselling Author Kyle Mills @KyleMillsAuthor presciently wrote about Coronavirus and now joins us to discuss his latest Vince Flynn novel TOTAL POWER which deals the entire US power grid being taken out by terrorists throwing America into chaos for a year.

Res Ipsa Loquitur: The Letter of the President’s Counsel Speaks (Loudly) For Itself

 

In the law, we would have occasion from time to time to use a Latin phrase which often proved quite useful in drafting documents, motions and briefs. The phrase was Res Ipsa Loquitur, and it means “the thing speaks for itself.” That was my first thought after my study of the letter of the Special Counsel to the President, Emmet T. Flood, to the Attorney General, William Barr.

It does, indeed, speak for itself — quite directly, bitingly, and bluntly — definitely not in the nuanced way so favored by the oh-so-polite denizens of the Deep State. I cannot urge too strongly a careful reading of every word.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud the Trump administration for rolling back the burdensome EPA clean power plant regulations and giving the states more flexibility in how they deal with emissions.  They also unload on CNN and other media outlets for reporting on tearful reunions among family members living in North and South Korea after nearly 70 years, blaming the separation on the Korean War rather than a brutally repressive communist regime in North Korea.  And they shake their heads as President Trump takes to Twitter and muses about pulling security clearances based on what former national security officials say about him on cable television.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer the successful test of a missile defense system targeting intercontinental ballistic missiles. They also appreciate former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper once again confirming that he saw no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. And they are excited by initial reports that President Trump plans to withdraw the US from the Paris climate agreement, but are confused after Trump himself suggests a decision has not yet been made.
