As a pragmatic libertarian, I believe that government's most important duty is to protect the constitutional rights of the individual.

Great Pieces, Clarice. You know it's a good article when reading it pisses you off. I do take issue with two of the people you quoted who referred to the introduction of CCP virus patients into nursing homes as a "mistake." I don't give blue state officials the benefit of the doubt. That was something they did deliberately. The vulnerability of elderly in poor health was too widely known. Those policy makers knew what would happen. I don't care why they did it, and I don't plan to waste time speculating. It was deliberate.

Melinda, The real measure of incompetence was their writing down the threat agreement. Memorializing the illegal act took real men of jeanyus. As I recall it was captured in an email, but I don't remember who wrote it, the SC or Covington. IANAL but it seems to me the defense would want the threat to Flynn's son memorialized. That the SC allowed it to be captured in an email seems like incompetence born of towering arrogance. Prosecutors have been getting away with shit for decades. Maybe I'm just not looking, but I never hear of any consequences for misconduct. Is it even possible for a prosecutor to do something illegal when it came to plea bargains? Sorry to be dropping in and out. :)

Ext, I hadn't thought about that secret side deal. Allowing the threat to prosecute Flynn's son to remain secret seems to go beyond incompetence.

Ha! Sorry Lyle. I thought it was a popularity contest, not a pool. I'll pick Maggie Hassan, junior Senator from NH.

"Everybody will know that a vote for Biden..." meant to say.

Lyle @ 11:10 I think Hillary is going to be the pick. Biden will make a deal to resign before the first term is up, assuming he wins which is unlikely. Everybody will know they are a vote for Biden is a vote for the first woman president.

Ext @9:11 From the Flynn Declaration you linked at Power Line, I can't help but think that Covington and Burling were in on the Mueller cover up. They do not seem to have been in an adversarial relationship with the prosecution, but were instead urging Flynn to quietly go along with the program. While financially bleeding him dry. Also, I took the time to watch Maria this morning, switching over to Fox News Sunday at the commercials. The "All Star Panel" discussion of DOJ dropping the Flynn case was maddening. I didn't hear what Jason Chaffetz had to say, but there was a complete absence fact in the analysis by the other two. Chris Wallace was working off of Dem talking points. I used to think he was pretty good, but he's worthless now.

Ch, Hard to imagine McCabe not being mentally unstable from worry. Besides him I think there are some others who should cause some deep state indigestion. Pientka and Priestap. And without any evidence, I do think Rosenstein cut himself a deal on the way out, or if he hasn't, he will.

That's quite a tweet CH. CrossFire Big Brother thinks Flynn set them up. What I don't get is how the sting was supposed to work. A deliberate lie that was intended to get himself prosecuted?

Great Pieces, Clarice. Leading me to a new conclusion on one of my earlier conspiracy theories. I once thought there was a possibility that Rosenstein and Mueller could be white hats, meeting Trump in the White House to raise the alarm over McCabe's counterintelligence investigation. That meeting was on the same day that McCabe and Rosenstein discussed how Rosenstein might were a wire to record Trump. Now I think the real purpose of the meeting was to get Mueller appointed, once again, to head the FBI. The cabal had already gotten AG Sessions to recuse, and head of intelligence Flynn to be fired. So the DOJ, Intelligence Community, and the FBI were all under control of cabal allies, until Comey was fired. The appointment of Mueller would prevent Trump from getting one of his guys in charge of the FBI. Mueller would be able keep a lid on things, keep the cover up going. That was Plan A. He didn't get appointed. The very next day Rosenstein appointed Mueller as Special Counsel. That was Plan B. I'll be very surprised if Rosenstein doesn't resurface as a prosecution witness. Not to say that he was a white hat all along, but that he cut a deal.

Michigan's governor is not the enemy here; she has legitimate concerns about the people in the Detroit Metro area. Begging to differ, TM. When you have a House committee chair publicly lying about evidence of collusion and then refusing to release unclassified transcripts; when you have the DOJ selectively prosecuting Republicans while letting Democrats off; when you have the CIA and the FBI spying on a Republican presidential campaign; when our government has been so thoroughly corrupted, all for the purpose of electing Democrats, then yes, Michigan's governor is the enemy until she proves otherwise.

Once again, great Pieces Clarice. I marvel at the media coverage of hydroxychloroquine treatment for the CCP Virus. Dead silence when it appeared to be promising, then a flood of stories when anything showed it might be ineffective, or even harmful. There was that VA retrospective published in the NEJM that I suspect was deliberately misleading. More patients who were given HCQ died than patients who were not. But they never said how patients were chosen for HCQ treatment, which makes me think they gave HCQ to the ones who looked to be on death's door. And it's all just to be able to report that Trump was recklessly wrong to call it a potential game changer, more often than not, leaving out the "potential" part to make it look as though Trump is prescribing medications. Meanwhile back on the front lines, critical care doctors recommend it. As for clinical testing, the pandemic is likely to be over and done with before they get close to completion. ClinicalTrials.gov shows only four trials involving the HCQ, zinc combination, one of which is in the "recruiting" phase, and the other three haven't gotten that far. There are 53 trials involving HCQ and azithromycin. Two in Brazil were suspended, two were "enrolling by invitation," and one was "active not recruiting." None of the rest were beyond the "recruiting" phase. When trials are all done and they show the circumstances where HCQ is effective, they will be old news, not worthy of coverage.
