NR has posted Andy McCarthy’s latest column, Trump Keeps Giving Mueller Reasons to Pursue the ‘Collusion’ Probe.  It is, unfortunately, behind the NRPlus paywall but is well worth reading especially for those among us who believe the entire Russia collusion investigation was and remains nothing more than pretext to undermine the Trump presidency. Andy recounts his […]

Talk says that the Mannafort and others’ refusal to accommodate Mueller’s tactics to save themselves from jail leaves nobody except Cohen for Mueller to build a case with. Even CNN seems to […]

In case some of you have not (and I can’t see how that’s even remotely possible) been following what has been dubbed by Dan Bongino as the Spygate scandal, VDH gives a fairly comprehensive overview in NRO.   More

As Sarah walked from the diner’s serving room to the kitchen, she knew two things: her blood pressure had already begun to rise, and that it was only a matter of time before her latest customer began screaming like a psychopath. Sadly, it was a routine that they had all become used to. She really […]

A bombshell report from an anonymous source alleges that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a meeting last year with law enforcement officials (I’ve heard reports meeting concerned replacement of FBI Director Comey,) proposed wearing a wire to secretly record President Trump in the context of recruiting Cabinet officials to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Truth, Justice, and the American Way (Part 1b Andy v. Robert)

 

(Continued from “Truth, Justice, and the American Way – Part 1a Andy v. Robert“)

If Republicans are not careful, Obama’s most enduring legacy may be a perversion of federal power to ensure that no GOP, present or future, can be assured safety from prosecution or persecution (see protests against Trump staff or the legal fees and testimony under oath many experienced). Democrats started using the law and federal power against Americans they considered opponents during the Obama administration…improperly surveilling specific reporters like Rosen and Attkisson, using IRS to target conservatives to name a couple of examples. As the Obama era wound to a close, things like having key members of the FBI/DOJ upper echelon go rogue, or changing the rules to allow several agencies to receive classified information must have been a piece of cake.

Speculative comments on the future of the GOP post-Trump — being better with any POTUS other than Trump, moving forward in better condition after Trump exits (via the 25th Amendment, impeachment, voted out, or natural end of term, etc.), Mike Pence being a boy scout above reproach (and therefore not subject to actions similar to what’s happened to or been proposed for removing the president) — reminded me of an excellent article recently penned by Andrew McCarthy. I recommend for an excellent clear description of proper grounds to assign a Special Counsel. I’ll weave some of Andy’s points into some of my own thoughts on the subject.

What’s happened to Trump before, during, and after the election is not about the law; it’s not really about Trump. It’s about power; specifically in this case, the power to promote or halt the Leftist agenda. As Trump’s conservative successes multiply (and Leftists’ diminish), so does resistance against him. Any other individual replacing Trump, boy scout or not, who also slows the Leftist roll will experience resistance in proportion to their success. Other GOP may espouse similar basic goals as Trump, but will they be as successful achieving them? History indicates it’s been years since some of the Trump administration’s accomplishments have been repeated if ever, and not since Reagan (and many before him) has there been another US president as successful in impeding — even reversing some of — the Leftist agenda as Trump has done the last 20 months.

It’s late in the Don’s second term. The Don and his recently elected successor, Michael “Whitey” Pence, sit in the Don’s private garden in Mar-a-Lago on a bright, sunny day in South Florida.

The Don is older and slower now, only able to work 18 hours a day. He’s still recovering from Bob “Ferris” Mueller’s seven-year vendetta to bring down Big D on the mean streets of D.C. on behalf of the ruthless government crime families controlling the nation’s capitol.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Political Podcast for August 21, 2018, (number 188!!!) it’s the Big Lies for the Straight Guys edition of the show with your (trust me) straight hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This week we talk about a horrific tweet (why wasn’t he banned for this?!?!) by Jonathan van Ness of Queer Eye fame where he said (can I even repeat this on Ricochet? what about the CoC?) that “not all Republicans are racist.” And as if that wasn’t enough, he said “we gotta remember we are all in this together.” My God! What was he thinking? What kind of DINO is he trying to be?

Naturally, the true brethren of the left gave him several earsful on twitter.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Breaking: Manafort Found Guilty on 8 of 18 Counts, Cohen Pleads Guilty to 8 Counts

 

Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman for candidate Donald Trump, was facing 18 criminal counts. The jury found him guilty on eight of the counts, which included five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud, and one count of failure to disclose a foreign bank account. The jury said that they could not reach consensus on 10 of the counts, so those were declared a mistrial.

At about the same time the Manafort verdict came in, Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to eight counts. He admitted that he paid a pornographic actress for her silence during the 2016 presidential campaign and pleaded guilty to multiple charges of bank and tax fraud.

Well, just what exactly did you expect?

Trump the Candidate was a loud, braggadocious, outrageous, counterpunching, reality show celebrity/businessman who never let an attack go unanswered. To refresh your recollection, you should go do a search for “2016 Republican debate highlights.”

“I hope you don’t mind,” the President said to Special Counsel Bob “Ferris” Mueller, then nodded to me.

“Sure,” Mueller said. “No problem. Call me Ferris.”

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Mueller Seeks Death Penalty for Trump

 

I was walking toward my 2018 International Mensa Convocation meeting in the Washington Hilton yesterday with my longtime friend and attorney, E. Hobart Calhoun, when a horde of stampeding media types swept us into an immense ballroom just in time to hear Special Counsel Robert “Ferriss” Mueller announce he will seek the death penalty for President Trump for his collusion with Vladimir Putin to steal the 2016 US presidential election.

I was in DC on other business, sporting my “No IQ Below 75” lapel button, to testify before the Mensa Board of Directors to vehemently oppose a proposed amendment to our by-laws to lower Mensa standards to allow Senators and Congressmen to qualify for membership.
