  • Andrew Young Says More Important Issues Than Taking Down Confederate Symbols

    Charlottesville was essentially a media event. Notice how they close crop the photos because a wide view would show there were few white nationalists there. probably talking about 80-90 out of a nation of 330 million. Then the media blows it up from there to create a groundswell among the professionally aggrieved to fashion a storyline to roll out nationally that the nation is aflame with white racism.
    And in the end after all the railing against flags and pulling down of confederate monuments, there is not one less drug addict, not one less impoverished illegitimate baby, not one less jobless person, not one less violent crime committed in that aggrieved community. Perhaps the problem lies within and a little more introspection can lead to a solution rather than CNN’s commercial need to create entertaining news.

    Seems to me the victim should sue the county and the sheriff’s office for damages resulting from their unlawful willfulness that led to her rape. That ought to underscore

    This all gets down to the Somali’s partner in the cop car. He saw everything because the Somali reached over him to shoot her. I am not interested in what the Somali has to say. I want to know what the partner saw and heard.

    Wray, Trump’s choice should soon be heading the FBI. I would think McCabe will be demoted to the mailroom once Wray takes the reins.

    Trump should announce that Mueller has a year to do the investigation and that he is gone. That for the good of the country this will not drag on like the others with a guy that is associated with one of the potential targets, Comey who has appointed a bunch of Dems to his team. Then he should indicate that the first leak out of the special prosecutor office he will push for a special counsel to investigate Comey independently and the special prosecutor’s office for leaks.

    How did Napilitano ever get on TV? He is just some former lower court hack judge from Jersey. He is wrong much of the time and his legal analytical skills leave a lot to be desired.
    Cannot stand listening to this self appointed authority even on the rare occasions when he happens to be right.

    Merkel has just opened the gates to Europe again for another muslim invasion with that stupid statement. Other European countries that are invaded because of it should put the invaders on non stop express trains to Munich rather than sending them home and let Merkel choke on them.

  • Hypothetical "collusion" question for FR Legal Minds

    “[A]ll civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. US Const, Art. II, Sec. 4.”

    I think it would be a stretch for a candidate not holding government position at the time to be defined as a civil officer. Clearly the incumbent would be but an opponent completely divorced from government would not seem to be.I say that because the thrust of the bribery provisions is to discourage civil officers from trading on their positions in government and the contacts they make during their service to advance their interest. Obama would not be directly permitted to pay for info from Putin but Trump because he was not in government and thus he would not have made contact with Russia as a result of discharge of government duties. Having said that, the reality is they all pay for negative info even info coming from foreign sources through layers of campaign staff on one side and layers of foreign government agents on the other and keep the candidate insulated from the activity. Lastly how do we define an enemy? The political reality is right now Russia is called as an enemy by many. As a matter of diplomacy State does not call them an enemy. Others see them more as a irritating pain in the butt of no real threat of directly attacking the US.Is an enemy a country we do not like because their are many of those on the globe. Personally I think there currently are truly only 3 enemies of the US right now that can lead to direct confrontation NK, Iran and lesser extent China. All others range from friends like Israel to irritating pains in the ass like Russia.

    I am trying to think of a criminal statute for this. Attempted acceptance of a solicitation to freely provide negative facts on an opposing candidate from an individual who has no such facts and does not provide any in a 15 minute meeting. Seems to me the individual showing up for the meeting could have been alleged “Trump cheerleader” Putin himself and we still do not have a crime unless a definitive quid pro quo of government favors can be proven.Oh, that’s right, Trump was not even an elected official and had no government favors to barter.That’s a Hillary specialty.Collusion,you say. Collusion how? You mean sometime thereafter Trump allowed Putin access to DNC systems and allowed them to hack Podesta’s e mails and distribute them publicly and did not punish the Russians. Oh, that’s right Trump had no access to DNC systems and had no authority to punish the Russians. That’s an Obama thing. Was there ever a presidential candidate campaign staff in history that would not take such a meeting including Hillary and Obama?Wasn’t this called campaign politics in the old days?  Now all of a sudden the DNC mouthpiece NYT is trying to create a somethinggate narrative for it.This does not even rise to the level of fake news. It is no news.

    I am trying to think of a crime for this. Acceptance of a solicitation from a third party friend to freely provide negative facts on an opposing candidate to be disclosed by another individual who has no such negative facts and does not provide any in a 15 minute meeting.
