Pay attention guys, the discussion of the indictments (both sets) has moved to 'The Mysterious ...'. Read the goddam posts.

RobertC 330pm - So that's the very best you could do?? You come in from the side, totally ignore the point (what happened to the original 13), and start disparaging me as the one who is seeking answers, answers that apparently you have no clue about. But did we expect anything better? Probably not, and you have made your mark (again for all to see) to confirm your sharp powers of reason and logic.
George Rebane Remember last winter when Mueller announced the indictment of 13 (that’s thirteen, like in one, three) Russians in his collusion investigation (more here). Remember that we discussed these indictments in the 14feb18 Sandbox (here), and concluded that there... Continue reading

RobertC 137pm - Amazing Mr Cross, directly out of the Socialist International Playbook. While you look at the half-empty glass of capitalism, I and mine celebrate the half-full version by understanding the source of wealth for the world's poorest who, before capitalism over the last two centuries, had a fraction of what they have now, and much shorter time in which to enjoy that. American capitalism is neither the cause of remaining poverty in the world, nor responsible for its eradication (although we are doing much to achieve that). However, Americans like you are totally free to reach into your own pockets to remedy the matter, as long as you don't reach into the pockets of me and mine. But, as always, that is really what all you wealth-sucking collectivists always have in mind. Before you start redistributing wealth you have not created, I would recommend that you put your nuts on the line and start a business or two, and feel the bottom of your own savings account as you sign the front side of a paycheck.

PaulE 125pm - Again you bring in your ineluctable logic Paul. I have no idea where you go to dredge up such conclusions, nor do I know how I can evade them.

PaulE 1102am - I'm referring to the normal course of a trial under US jurisprudence in which both prosecution and defense share the evidence they have to support their respective cases. I thought you were aware of that. The release of those 12 indictments was definitely a political act that smell of high heaven. Who authorized the timing of this release just before Trump meets Putin? Given that there will be no enforced extradition of the 12, the indictment could have been postponed a few days, or, if the damning evidence was at hand months ago, why was the indictment delayed? As far as should they have been indicted. The question needs to be answered in the context of the Russians having meddled in our elections since Stalin's days during the Great Depression when much of our leftwing press took its cues from the Kremlin. Why lie to Americans as if Moscow's meddling just started in 2016? Most of us know the obvvious answer to that; Paul, do you?

Wasn't the problem for Mueller with such indictments that one of the defendants may choose to actually plead 'not guilty' and go to court demanding that prosecution share with defense all the available evidence required to convict?

RobertC 902am - Mr Cross, it appears that you are of the progressive bent in whose world the rich get rich be stealing from the poor and not by creating wealth through risky ventures. Is that a correct understanding? If not, then in according to your lights, how do the rich get that way, and what impact does it have on the poor?

PaulE 1216pm - Thanks for the concern Paul, but not to worry, my ratings could use a rest ;-)

Will someone please explain to me or the nearest gleeful leftwinger how Mueller is "closing in" on President Trump.

M 101pm - Another sad historical miss Mr M (one wonders what you read for history). 'Better Red than dead!' was actually the public chant of the anti-war Left starting in the 1950s.

RobertC 936am - What's interesting is that you of the Left don't know that the red/blue convention was invented by a very ignorant journalist about 10-15 years ago who had no idea that red has always been the color of the Left. For convenience the rest of the lamestream idiots started using the assignment, and the rest is history. Forever red has been the color of America's enemies in the military exercises, including NATO, and it still is.

DonB 1003pm - this is a good comparison to asses the timbre of our leftwingers. From their strident comments, they clearly are not in the category of moderate Democrats. However, there is nothing we should do to encourage them to temper their wrath, for the more they convince their brethren to similarly emote their convictions, the better off will be the country in November.

DonB 1253pm - Mr Bessee, do you consider it possible/likely that a blue groundswell could rise and sweep Mad Max into office (a la the moral equivalent of the red groundswell that swept Trump into office)?

M 602pm - Where oh where did you get the notion that anyone claimed that Judge Garland was a threat to civilization? Are you making this stuff up out of whole cloth, or did you attempt to apply some reason? If the latter, please share it.

M 1227pm - Unfortunately, I answered the question completely. It seems that our conversation has ended. re your 1232pm - I take that to mean that you know not of what you speak when you switch between calling Trump master and puppet.

M 1136am - Was my 1110am question too confusing? re your 1140am - the "rent check" was due upon adoption of the 2% minimum, and was only later extended to 2024 when most of the NATO countries did not respond. BTW, as I've demonstrated here for years, and having talked directly to many Germans about this, I'm part your "meathead base"

M 1059am - According to your (current?) lights, is Trump the puppet or the master? From comments on these pages by you and yours, there seems to be a confusion on this as witnessed by your flip-flops. Will a Schumer, Pelosi, Perez, or ... resolve the issue for you anytime soon? Inquiring minds would like to have this settled.

re PaulE 958am - We should not be amazed that those of the Left do not accept FN as being a center-right news outlet that nevertheless gives a comprehensive picture and related broad-spectrum commentaries on what's happening. This is totally contrary to what we see in the lamestream which omits whole swaths of news topics that don't fit their ideological narrative. E.g. yesterday's NPR Morning Edition, for some unfathomable reason, totally omitted reporting the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh in its morning newscast. As I've pointed out before, that is why so many leftwing RR readers think that I'm the originator of or the only one espousing conservetarian views that, in fact, are shared by many (sometimes millions of) others. Part of the progressive uniform-of-the-day is to wear the obligatory blinders so as to filter out the more complex nuances of the realworld.
