When I said catch up, it must be noted that my normal status is at least a few days behind. That being the case, I normally read the first couple of hundred posts of most TMs blogs then move on up one posting more current. Since my last comment I see we have had comments from other lurkers. I am especially appreciative of the personality, work ethic, family skills, and on-point comments of recently active ccgirl. Good to see Beast back too! ... and always Caro.

Hi guys, Im back again and as usual, way behind. I saw this and thought TM should see it. apologize if it is already posted. This shows what happens when LEOs give uncooperative suspects free reign to move about after disobeying lawful orders. Rember, if your black (or white) life matters, dont reach for an unseen object after disobediently entering a vehicle (or any other time you are dealing with LEOs. TM take a look at this SWC offering and the RS article put up by Sister Toldjah https://www.redstate.com/shipwreckedcrew/2020/09/16/why-jacob-blake-was-shot-by-the-officer-in-kenosha-wisconsin/ https://www.redstate.com/sister-toldjah/2020/09/16/woman-tired-of-one-sided-conversations-on-policing-sparks-much-needed-discussion-after-tulsa-video-released/ hopefully I can catch up soon... ... and TM please pay attention!

I am about 6 hours behind so it may be a while to I get to current comments. Had a thought this morning: I Would love to see Trump invoke a stealth move toward winning the popular vote. Campaign to pick up more votes in large states he will not win and expand his lead in red states like Texas. I know that more than once (not since Zero) I hadn't voted early and didn't vote in national elections because I knew who would win anyway. Now with these national popular states, those days are over. Winning the popular vote would give him electoral votes from several (don’t remember the number) states that Dems always count on. Be careful what you wish for libs…. Hope his campaign is in constant contact with volunteers who signed up at rallies. Get them in the streets EVERYWHERE. That would create a MAGA landslide!

This post this morning… “Since Obama did not even get out of bed before H1N1 killed 1,000 Americans, had Trump waited until that point in Covid... Two Americas.” Posted by: Old Lurker | May 21, 2020 at 08:37 AM …Got me to wishing some data finder would do a comparison chart of cases- hospitalizations – deaths comparison between Zerobama and Trump exec actions. Im guessing Trump was thousands of points ahead of Zero in actions. Would be an interesting exercise.

To MMs above comment on maps, lady sidwhite suffers from directional indifference. She was a lifelong (50 yrs) Abilene, TX resident before our marriage 10 years ago. We both had homes, mine in San Antonio. When we were dating, she had OnStar service to her car. We married and made our home in SA. Based on her use of OnStar, she never actually knew where she was. I would listen to her plan a day at “running errands” and had to tell her that her plan involved driving a few hundred extra miles by going back and forth across the city. She listened to the computerized voice give directions and NEVER actually knew where she was or how she got there. Never observed landmarks or street/highway signs. Thankfully we sold the SA house and are living in the Abilene house so familiarity with this area means now OnStar only gets accessed when traveling.

Redstate: Below are passages from the hearing transcript. I note the page number for each passage that instructs my conclusion. Sullivan stated as follows: P.16 THE COURT: All right. I am satisfied that Mr. Flynn entered his guilty plea while competent and capable. He understood at that time the nature of the charges against him and the consequences of pleading guilty. Having carefully read all the materials provided to the Court in this case, including those materials reviewed under seal and in-camera, I conclude that there was and remains to be a factual basis for Mr. Flynn’s plea of guilty. Redstate: The problem is that while he said that, he never actually did that — which he happened to admit later in the hearing. He didn’t do that — which he confirmed with his own comments, not once, but twice. P. 19 THE COURT: Mr. Flynn admitted that his false statements or omissions impeded and had a material impact on the investigation, and when I ask questions of the government, I need to know answers about how he impeded the investigation and what the material impact on the investigation was. Redstate: Judge Sullivan states in open court and on the record he still does not know how the false statements were material. This post is long enough but Sullivan again on P. 50 said he will need to know how Flynn' statements impleaded any investigation.

Got ahead of myself TK. This is the article I remembered. Basically The law requires judge to test the plea before accepting. He stated he wasn't convinced of the materiality of the Flynn statement and he would need further persuasion but he accepted the plea anyway. Then later Sullivan still needed "material" justification at a later on the record hearing. Lawyers can opine. The author - former prosecutor says it was a major error to accept the plea while stating he did not "get" what was material about it.

Re: TKs Redstate link above: Shortly after the recent document production RedState had an article about how Sullivan,in a hearing where he required Flynn to be sworn in to restate the guilty plea, went on record during a the hearing questioning or stating he was not convinced about the “material” false statement test of the lying charge. He then accepted a “Restated guilty plea”. Then later, after accepting the plea, repeated on the record that he still needed convincing of the materiality of Flynn’s statements. RedState claimed this mistake itself negates that plea.

Sidney Powell Look what I just saw. @SidneyPowell1 #BREAKING Team Flynn has just delivered to the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit a Petition for Writ of Mandamus to correct Judge Sullivan's unauthorized actions. Haven't read but I assume there is a link to the text of the Writ.

I am behind a few hours and preparing to get on the road for a few hours, so this may have been already covered... Interesting write up at Red State. IANAL but seems logical to me. My layman’s mind has drafted the reply to the contempt for perjury charge in that at the time he was represented by his original defense team (who believed any lie the FBI put forth), he was convinced he did lie and was guilty. Along came Ms Powell and explained that the FBI is not known for truth telling and no way to know if his statements were incorrect (lie). Also she like the judge, she couldn’t wrap her mind around the “Material” issue, hence advised Flynn to change his plea. The Contempt charge is going to fail https://www.redstate.com/shipwreckedcrew/2020/05/12/very-likely-judge-emmet-sullivan-committed-error-in-connection-with-flynn-sentencing/ Sullivan accepted the plea while saying that he couldn’t tell if Flynn was really guilty based on the information (pleadings?) from the FBI or Flynn’s team and should be requesting further pleadings on the matter yet this ended the plea matter.

Re: ”hornets” In a previous life, I operated a D9 Cat on a larger ranch in the brush country of Texas. Just moved into a 200 -300 acre pasture and was working on clearing a path through the brush between a gate and a windmill about a few hundred feet away. The area had been chained* about 20 years prior leaving tree trunks lying among the brush. Got one in the blade and rolled it off to the side of the path was clearing and backed up for a fresh bite at the brush I was knocking down. Got a skeeter bite and smashed it with my hand which turned the skeeter into a brining ember. I was in a swarm of small honey bees that had a hive in the hollow of the log on the ground. They were pissed! Got hit about twenty times (a D9 in the highest gear is about a slow trot for an old man like me) before getting clear of them. Grandad was a beekeeper and called them aggressive “Spanish bees” as they were smaller and a darker bee than the “Italian” bees he kept. I recently wondered it the few “Spanish” bees we experienced were later called the killer bees migrating from Mexico??? • Chaining involved a chain between two large bulldozers and driving though and knocking down trees between. This allowed sunlight on the ground which allowed more grass to grow for grazing cattle. Yeah, doesn’t seem prudent today…

Similarly, the security clearance disqualification for lying to the court when he agreed that the FBI had not influenced his plea by any side agreement is a non-starter. He was represented by counsel and the FBI agreed with his statement. I can hear the atty explain to him that any side statements by FBI that he agreed with did not fit the legal definition of anything referenced by his written plea agreement.

I keep hearing newsreaders (opinion spouters) keep saying Gen Flynn lied. My thought is this (if the Judge is considering actually invoking a sentence on Flynn: Judge should demand a recording of Flynn’s Russian conversation and compare to the best FBI phrasing of Flynn’s interview statement that is considered a “lie”. I will lay odds that FBI never gave Flynn exact quote from recording and he had to accept whatever they said. I further assert that no thinking human would consider “I can’t talk about sanctions with you (Russia) now” as discussing sanctions with Russia. Flynn’s answer of “not really” was probably correct and definitely no lie. Probably the same with whatever he related to the VP. I will be shocked if that is not generally what happened and to this date Flynn has not heard the recording about which he supposedly lied. Numerous conservative types allude to his caving to plead guilty just to protect his family renders him unacceptable for future work relating to the security of the country. I think he thought he did lie based on what the FBI told him he said on the phone call that he really didn’t explicitly recall since he simply deflected the Russian’s approach.

Porch, if you are on the south side of Austin,, I suggest a drive to Clear Springs, Texas (between New Braunfels and Seguin on Tx 46 for the best onion rings I have ever had. That is the original location and I've also been to Clear Springs Restaurants in Tyler and Midland. There was one in San Antonio but it never took off. I have taken guests to all three current locations and the rings got rave reviews. It's specialty is catfish but does a great CFS and my sister likes the steaks. I LOVE the blackened filets slathered with the etoufee

Great article Clarice. One thing I have thought of - are Americans or businesses entitled to any compensation under the “takings” provisions of the constitution? The government has obviously “taken” the income livelihood right out of the public’s asset basket. I know that if the “government” must compensate, then we the people will eventually pay that bill. While I personally don’t have any desire to pony up, I can understand that this taking is theoretically done for the good of the people, (yes, there are many schools of thought that it wasn’t the correct thing to do), and that those of us who benefited from the “taking” will eventually need to balance the books. Lawyer types, is there a legal angle for recovery of this income “taken” by the government from these Americans?

Someone touched on it yesterday but my biggest takeaway from yesterday’s pandemic update was the over the top stupidity of the msm. Spent the first half of the Q&A claiming that president did not shut the country down soon enough, then the last half claiming president had no authority to open things back up.

Well I’ve caught up again – sorta – thanks to low number of post on Easter. I’m hunkered down her in Texas (Abilene) working remote from my home office. We are essential business (multifamily housing) across the state. About 4 weeks ago, I was on my way to do my fireman thingy on a Houston project when my boss told on me a Sunday afternoon to hold up in a hotel on the way while the company board of directors (he is one) had an emergency meeting Monday afternoon. Driving – I quit flying early in March. (We were supposed to meet in Houston Monday am.) That was to determine policy regarding CCP virus. After some vacillation, I was told to head back home and did so Tuesday am. Been here since. Some talk Friday about the possibility a meet up in our San Antonio office in a week or two (He lives SA, I live Abilene, both office out of Dallas). Our division has two unoccupied offices there so we can “distance”. SA is home to our commercial division, Dallas home to Multifamily, El Paso corporate home and heavy infrastructure home. Mention of that possibility at home brought a “not no but HELL NO” from Mrs. W. I check most boxes (68, Type 2, BP meds, not skinny, and A-fib history) for staying clear of this crap. As said, we are essential but are trying to be lenient on subs who have trouble keeping manned up.

Yes GUS, 16 Year old douche bags on bicycles coming out of the woods are no longer a threat with a tiny safety pocket knife. Like I said, my friend the city policeman practically went into a programmed trance telling me the evils of a safety knife. Scary!
