Re: TC at 1:20 As I recall Congress can establish a state, EXCEPT it cannot be made from any existing states. I recall that DC was carved from southern Md. and northern Va. Would there be an exception to the from another state prohibition if congress did the prohibited legislation in two steps. Who (besides Roberts) would buy that?

CCgirl asked a pertinent question last night that went unanswered. Yes, there were several sarcastic comments but the core question was not addressed. Basically: “Since the US Constitution designates the “district” status of DC, how can congress constitutionally make it a state equal to the 50 other current states?” Explaining how dumbocrats and crooked courts ignore the constitution regularly is not the needed answer. Is there a legal way for congress to do this?

Good morning JOM Regarding yesterday’s discussion about the Dec 14th day for naming electors and the constitution stating the date is to be set by the congress. What if a specific congress neglects to set the date. I mean can a congress 150 years ago set procedures for the congress today? ISTM that this needed to be done by each election year congress? If congress can “reset” the date, then it is not permanently fixed by the first constitutionally set date. Is so, is there even a “set” date if this congress has never “set” it? IANAL but I do get into the tiny details of contracts. I don’t see how one congress can bind the next ones, unless all successors yield. Senate can set a new date = 3 working days after all litigation is settled but no later than 3 working days prior to date constitutionally mandated for new president to be inaugurated. If house does not act, then let the court (supreme) decide As the above is probably off-base for thousands of reasons, it is obvious that this construction exec is not a constitutional lawyer. Also obvious, I am about a day behind.

Sorta off topic? This morning on Outnumbered, there was a discussion about Flynn “Guilt” of lying to Pence and Trump. I have not heard either POTUS or VP address this since the call transcript became available. It shows that Flynn did not lie to FBI in that the FBI asked him about discussing “USA’s Russian Sanctions”, but he discussed the reduction of diplomats. Obama had kicked out the diplomats prior to his issuing formal “Sanctions”. Technically he did not lie. Either way, it appears his responses were that he couldn’t specifically remember what was said in the conversation that had occurred about a month earlier. Flynn pled guilty when the FBI was lying to him about what the transcripts contained, and when he thought the questioning may have been related to investigation of a separate crime. The FBI knew all along there was no other “crime”.

Re: Earlier discussion about TKs tamale dish. Some stores have refrigerated tamales in the meat or heat and eat display case. Taco Bueno is a chain around Texas, and I think I have seen some in Calif. They have tamales in the winter months. (I recently had an order of 3 for lunch.) Do note that contrary to Gerald Ford methods, you need to remove the corn husk before eating. Very tasty finger food. --- you can use a fork if too greasy – the good ones are a little greasy from the lard in the masa part.

Last/next question: 3.) Should the state legislatures refuse to certify questionable vote tabulation results, several here have stated this would send the vote to the house or reps. My reading of the electoral college procedure is that the majority of “total electors voting” can elect the president. If 48 states send electors, then the majority of those 48 states’ electors will select the next president. Which is it? Thanks a lot and I will catch up and see what you have to say.

I’m several hours behind but I have a couple of questions for my JOM friends to chew on until I am caught up. This is the first two, other(s) will be in a separate post. 1) Sidney Powell mentioned states and countries/companies violating the the EO on foreign interference in elections. Can my attorney friends opine but my understanding is that EOs only apply to the Executive branch? How can a state’s voting procedures be non-compliant with an EO? (Sidney Powell is much smarter than this Sid so I expect to be corrected.) 2) Rush shot down a caller today who said that the states’ legislatures could direct electors to vote if they felt the voter’s votes were not being accurately tabulated. Rush shot this down something like “No way that is possible”. (Later he referred to the previous caller and incorrectly sad the ask was “can the electors decide to vote the other way.” So maybe he didn’t fully hear/understand the guy. Can the state legislatures reject questionable vote results and so direct the electors the way they see fit? I was so far behind that I am bringing this from the dead thread I am currently reading.

Good afternoon JOM friends. I am woefully behind but wanted to get a question out, and hopefully I can see any comments by election results time tomorrow. After Hillary got the plurality of popular vote in 2016, there was a lot of talk in some blue states about requiring the state’s electors to vote in accordance with the national popular vote leader. Did any states enact such a change? Trump remembered the electoral college in 2016 and Hillary forgot. Trump has much greater voter enthusiasm than any dems. If he would campaign on it, he could get hundreds of thousands more blue hell votes than normal. Being from Texas, and some more in Red states. I have, in the past, failed to make the effort to vote because the “outcome was pre-determined”, even though I am VERY conservative. Multiply that in both Red and Blue states where people can be shown that even in NY, you vote WILL make a difference, and who knows what might happen. Hope to catch you before tomorrow night. ...now back to work!

OT but… Just a note regarding misquotes of Biden’s statement about black voters. Even heard Rush do this AM and I think I have heard Trump do the same. It is much worse than what is portrayed. Biden didn’t say that “if you don’t vote for me you aint black”, his comment is that “real” blacks aren’t qualified to question for whom they may vote. Democrats policy is to disallow blacks from independent thinking, no sir, no black thinking around here! This typical Dem attitude needs to be broadcast from the mountain tops.

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!

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.

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.
