So much for the "Art of the Deal."
He should know. Obama did a pretty good job of f***ing things up himself, especially by not even investigating, let alone prosecuting the banksters for the literally millions of perpetrations of perjury, forgery and fraud that let up to the meltdown of 2008. So now the TBTF vampire squid, to use Matt Taibbi's term, has open season to prey on the rest of the American public like there's no tomorrow. For many of whom there probably won't be.
A couple of provocative reads. First up a two part series by the Canadian Matthew Ehret suggesting, among other things, we here in the USA are still, de facto, a part of the British Empire: “The Brookings Hand Behind Russiagate Points Back to Rhodes Trust Coup on America” “The Birth of a Global Nation: What Makes a Modern Rhodes Scholar?” Then there’s this by James Attucher, a long-time denizen of the New York theater scene: “NYC Is Dead Forever. Here's Why”
Jack, Just to clarify, the link you posted above is about Steven Schrage, not by him. It was written by Matt Taibbi at his personal internet perch. I agree it's definitely worth the time to read.
Esper's slip reminds me of Mayor Daley during the 1968 Democratic convention: "The police are not here to create disorder; they're here to preserve disorder."

jerseycityjoan, re: " It seems that the Chinese want to apply the new laws to people around the world so it would be a crime . . " They must be taking lessons from a country we all know and love that's gotten pretty good at that.

Scott Ritter demolishes Bountygate in a long, detailed piece at Consortium News: "There's no there there," to leverage Gertrude Stein's remark about her home town, Oakland, California.

Robert William, Thank you for the comprehensive and informative reply.
T. Gore: re Biden and the Logan Act Joe's been on the DC scene for so long he probably remembers the bygone days when it was usually honored. Now it rarely is except when it comes in handy to go after the "wrong" people.
Does Gen. Flynn have standing to sue? And if so, whom? This question might be more appropriate for Robert William than Larry J.
And this:

srw, I posted that Mint Press News link elsewhere earlier this am and a commenter later said the previous refusal to press charges came after her she had left the prosecutor job for the US Senate. I haven't had the time yet since to check that out, but she was notorious for giving police violence a pass during her watch. Jack, up-thread. Target is HQed here in the Twin Cities and it's my understanding that particular store had been their test bed for loss prevention techniques for roll-out to the rest of their properties. Some of what they tried out there didn't go down well with that inner city community and as a result the store became a focal point of dissatisfaction. Not justifying; just explaining a factor involved.

As a native Minnesotan who's lived here all but 12 years of my live I agree. I've seen two conflicting narratives of what the alleged offense was: forging a check; and passing a counterfeit $20 bill. If it was the latter, the irony is he may well not have any idea the note was a fake. Floyd was a bouncer at a nightclub and may well have received it as a tip.

It may be premature to write off Judge Sullivan's initiative as indicative of anti-Trump/GOP bias. As Gen. Flynn's attorney, Sidney Powell points out in the open letter to ex-President Obama posted on her website on May 13, 2020, this judge is known to be a stickler on prosecutory malfeasance. He may well be doing this to prevent the egregious misconduct in this case from being swept under the carpet.
Mystifying and dispiriting. Maybe "they" finally got something on her. Alternatively, did she get any sort of contentment out of Joe in return? If she did will he be able to/want to remember it come November 4? There's no chance the "organs" sector of the deep state would take Tulsi-as-Veep lying down. Or any significant foreign policy or national security position for that matter. She may think by endorsing Biden She'd at least partway move back into the good graces of the Democratic Party establishment, but that's a false hope. They'll never trust her again. If she'd kept her endorsement powder dry, even though she'd get no MSM coverage going forward (not the vanishingly small amount she got as a candidate), more than a few of the non-MSM platforms, video and otherwise, that have in some cases millions of readers and viewers, would have been happy to have her on frequently. She'll still get some of that exposure but not much. She may get some MSM stops in the next few days, but that will be it.
And best of all, as you note, it may lead to Netanyahoo's sorry a** vacationing in the slammer.
Reply to: ked | 12 March 2020 at 06:18 PM ked, I recently stumbled on a book that goes into this issue in depth. It is entitled The Long Southern Strategy: How Chsing White Voters In The South Changed American Politics, by Angie Maxwell and Todd Shields. I've only read the 35 page introduction so far but it provides a pretty good summary the rest of the book.

John Helmer from Moscow: The USA has never presented any evidence to the Dutch leading the MH-17 crash "investigation" that a Buk missile was aunched.
A few days ago The Saker had an informative post up about the geopolitical history of the Syria/Turkey area. Probably old news for many others in the SST community, but helpful for those of us less familiar with the area.
Colonel, you're not the only one advocating the abolishing of the CIA. Angelo Codevilla has a long piece up at American Mind arguing for that, as well as similar treatment for the FISA court. There are some scathing remarks about the FBI as well but no explicit calls for its defenestration.
It took Tulsi about 18 hours to get that brief statement out. Can't help but wonder what that delay was all about.
Oh boy! If this was done by the USA, whose bright idea was it? An air strike has killed Iranian Qods Force commander Qassem Soleimani and another senior Iranian-linked figure in Baghdad, Iraqi state television reported on Thursday. No one claimed immediately responsibility for the strike, which Iraqi television also said killed Abu Mehdi al-Muhandas, an Iraqi militia commander, near the Iraqi capital’s airport, but the death of Iran’s most revered military leader appeared likely to send tensions soaring between the United States and Iran.
