  • *VANITY* Levin: How will he react to Cruz's behavior?

    07/20/2016 11:38:52 PM PDT · 14 of 75
    FlipWilson to cba123

    Levin will launch into a wonderful lecture about our founding principles brought forth by our founding fathers and based on teachings of Locke and others. It will be a wonderful lecture that is best saved for a classroom. It is devoid of the political realities of today’s low info voters. The voters who have been taught that the founders were racist, criminal slave owners and thus our founding was illegitimate.

    In short, all but the already converted will dismiss Mark and he will expand his influence nada. He should have, instead, sought to support while influencing the Trump campaign. Perhaps asking it to get behind his convention of states movement.

    Instead, he picked a flawed horse in Ted Cruz that lost. Now Levin’s actions and words betray a man who has had his ego bruised. He acts like a petulant brat. Was he this upset when McCain and Romney were chosen?

    I was a Ted Cruz supporter. I donated to him. Tonight, I feel like a fool for ever supporting this self-centered jerk. I will actively do whatever it takes to unseat him from political office. Who is his primary opponent?

    I will reject those who support him as some sort of constitutional God. ARE YOH HEARING ME MARK LEVIN!!! This isn’t some class room. This is not some Constitutional class where we can expect the low information voter to absorb your books like they were the bible. Go teach school while
    the rest of us deal with the political realities of the day.

    Quote: “The FBI reputation would be ruined, perhaps forever.

Do we really believe the leaks from the FBI, NSA, CIA, DIA and elsewhere would never materialize? Do we really believe that everyone in the FBI is corrupt? I don’t think so.”

    First off, how many institutions, organizations and people have the Clinton’s ruined or corrupted in their quest for power? The FBI would just be another paver stone on the path for those two.

    Secondly, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it does it make a sound? I should have added this to my analysis but the “move on” moment will entail the press ignoring, drowning out and ruining anyone who dares leak anything that does not support the “innocent, victim, exonerated” Hillary narrative.

    The problem (is and always was): How does Hillary not only extract herself (she always was going to) from this investigation but do so with MAXIMUM political advantage?

    The solution(s):

    1) Lynch refuses to prosecute. Not acceptable. It basically takes Hillary’s poop and smears it on the narcissistic one’s regime. Not happening. I also leaves Hillary in worse shape as it does nothing to make her look anything but guilty. Tarmac gate certainly added to that stench.

    2) Slow walk this. Possible solution but one that leaves Hillary exposed for the entire campaign. Not acceptable.

    3) The only solution is and ever was to have the FBI tank this at the roots. Go through the kabuki theatre of their being a real investigation. The FBI takes their time (they could have completed this months ago). Pass along selected “leaks” as to how “outraged” the people on the ground conducting the investigation are as to what they are finding. Pass along these leaks to keep FoxNews reporting and to gin up the conservative commentators. Talk up how “upstanding” Comey is, etc. Then, once the FBI tanks this, and they will, Hillary can play the victim, talk about how there wasn’t even adequate evidence resulting from this upstanding, fair and impartial investigation to indict her (and you can indict a ham sandwich, don’t cha know (can’t you hear Carville now)). What the hell, this can be a further continuation of the VRWC.

    Bam, wham, same old Clinton dance. Another day, another move on moment.

    Ah, now I see it. Now I see why Lynch met with Bill Clinton for a half hour. It wasn’t for Bill to give her the offer she can’t refuse. It was for Lynch to give Bill everything Hillary would need to prep her for her FBI interview. The Target is usually questioned last so that the prosecutor is asking questions it knows the answers to. It trips up the Target. But if the Target is also clued in as to what the investigators have, then all bets are off.

    Why would Lynch deliver the thumb drive herself? Why not trust a flunkie? Was it because she did not want to risk the flunkie going rogue and having another witness in the chain? Perhaps she did simply get sloppy.

    Hillary will skate. But that was likely always a given. The real question is how. How will she skate to afford her maximum political advantage while shielding the Obama administration?

    First step, divide Hillary’s problems into two. 1) Clinton Foundation corruption and 2) e-mail/national security violations

    Step two, The Clinton Foundation corruption is priority one as that supposedly “discredited” book regarding the Clintons has been out for a while and has been anything but discredited. Not to mention that most people can understand the Clintons were poor and are now rich. Thus, the sheeple most readily understand corruption and most readily can get their minds wrapped around this charge. Solution, delay the release of any information on this until well after the election. By that time she is President and the problem is solved.

    Step three, kill the e-mail investigation at the roots. Someone in the FBI must be found to simply say, “there is no chargeable offense.” Slow walk the investigation until the requisite leverage can be found to get someone in the FBI to play ball. This way, Lynch and Obama stay above it. Hillary can declare that the investigation was so ridiculous as to not even have gotten out of the FBI. The MSM will feast on that declaring Hillary not only innocent but a victim of a witch hunt. Any whistleblowers can be dealt with the Clinton way and by counting on the fact that the legal issues are more complicated than graft and corruption for the low into crowd to digest.

    Here comes a speech by Hillary declaring we should move on.

    This is how it will happen. The Lynch-Bill meeting was just more purposeful distraction, as are any leaks from the FBI, to avert eyes from were the real show or trick is happening. That is happening at the top of the FBI and with the career prosecutors who are well in the tank. Now, it is just a question of timing for maximum benefit for the Clintons.

    Quote: “The TV version of the Kingsmoot was a simplified version of the book Kingsmoot, Victarion/Yara/Asha merger withstanding.”

    I got that. I read the books and realized fairly quickly that the show was carving off vast amounts of the books and leaving them on the floor. So far, and I say so far, the horn has been left out.

    I watched the Kingsmoot again and again and the logical conclusion to reach from the SHOW is this. Euron wins (he doesn’t in the books, by the way) because he is the only credible male with a claim that comes forward. He also makes a good case for himself while ridiculing Theon. At the end of the scene he says that his neice and nephew stealing ships won’t help them. He says this not because of some unseen, unintroduced horn but because he has just ordered (on screen, part of the scene) a massive fleet to be built.

    I have no doubt that Euron will turn up. Perhaps with the horn (that needs to be introduced and somewhat explained next season). My guess is that he will 1)intercept Dany at sea; or 2)realize he was too late and ally with her enemies to cause havoc.

    Actually, in the books the king of the iron islands doesn’t have the horn, his brother (passed over for the throne) does and arrives in slavers bay as the battle with the maesters is taking place. The show has not even introduced or contemplated that horn. Also, the books don’t make it clear that it is doing anything other than burning the person blowing it.

    Quote: “The problem with the court system is the ability to cherry pick venues by the plaintiffs in rocket docket jurisdictions such as East Texas or Delaware. I feel bad for this doctor in the article but the issue of NPEs is real.”

    It is very real.

    There are many things Congress could have done to stop trolls. First, which is on the table now, is to reform the venue statute for patent cases and treat them like every other case.

    Second, amend the damages and fees section of the Act. If the Court finds a plaintiff or DJ defendant is an NPE (they do it anyway when deciding on injunctive relief under eBay), then said plaintiff/DJ defendant: 1) is not eligible for lost profits or a reasonable royalty; 2)instead is only eligible for some statutory damages (as in copyright); 3) is not eligible to obtain injunctive relief and 4) must pay fees and costs if the patent is held non-infringed or invalid.

    (Caveat, the Plaintiff’s bar would fight this tooth and nail. This is probably why the sledge hammer was taken to the patent act instead of the scalpel.)

    06/22/2016 7:46:55 AM PDT · 7 of 20
    FlipWilson to Pelham

    Step 1: The Courts decided that Section 101 of the statute had more substantive effect than intended. Section 101, if read properly, says that a broad range of things are patentable (it is written as inclusive), SUBJECT TO THE PROVISIONS OF THE STATUTE said provisions following Section 101. The Courts then took it upon themselves to declare a wide range of things as being off limits as if Section 101 was non-inclusive rather than inclusive. But still, to this day, they failed to articulate a test for telling us when things are off limits. Why? Because they cannot.

    Step 2: The PTO read the results of Step 1 and refused to consider patent applications of a certain type. Many of those patents were directed to software (”high tech”), a new creature (more on that later). As a result, the PTO accumulated zip, zero, nadda written prior art (the only thing they can rely on, really, to reject a claim).

    Step 3: The Courts (State Street Bank) changed course. Suddenly everything was patentable. The problem was that without prior art, literally every ridiculous idea bombarding the PTO was patentable. There was no basis for rejection.

    Step 4: “High Tech” patents and the age of the internet corresponded with the courts change of direction. Many of these patents are so damn vague as to read on anything and everything. I have a colleague defending his client’s computer monitor against a patent covering an LED flashlight. Software, high tech, whatever you want to call it perplexes the Courts and PTO. Is it copyright, patent, or abstract. Hint, hint Congress, perhaps it is time to give software its own type of patent (like plants have patents, there are design patents, why not one for software with specific rights?)

    Step 5: Send in the trolls. As Microsoft and the rest of the big guns killed the little guys or little guys simply couldn’t make it, what happened to their patent portfolios? Some enterprising people figured out what to do with them and hence was born the troll or NPE. Poor Microsoft, in many cases its long forgotten conquests came back home to roost. Problem is that the NPE’s took advantage of what I outlined in No. 4 above and went to town.

    Step 6: What a powerful lobby that High Tech is. They went to Congress professing the evils of the patent system. The abuses!!! They demanded “reform” and a “get out of jail free” card. Really, they demanded the end to the patent system. But for other industries tempering that lobby, High Tech would have gotten their way.

    Step 7: Back to the Courts and their voodoo. They were much maligned by the High Tech lobby and decided to head off the Congress at the pass rather than being embarrassed. Hence, they not only reversed the broadening of Section 101 but went so far as to de facto amend it killing entire legitimate industries (Prometheus) having nadda to do with High Tech. Try developing a treatment or drug, for example, without the diagnostics behind it.

    Step 8: The America Invents Act, or as we like to call it, the America No Longer Invents Act passed. So many gems in this Act, for example, if you pay a ton of money to the PTO to get your patent through prosecution, you can count on paying a ton more to defend it in front of a new part of said PTO just to likely see it invalidated (at an 80% clip) under the new post grant procedures of the AIA.

    Conclusion: I look at it this way. In the hurry to get to the devil (the patent Trolls) they cut down the laws that made us an innovative juggernaut. But the devil wears many faces(foreign knock-offs, for example). Now that the devil is turning around on us and the laws are cut down, how is that “reform” feeling. I have had two foreign knock-off companies contact me to ask if I can help them “enter” the U.S. market by destroying patents.

    Congress could have amended the statute to specifically target trolls. Instead, Congress did what it always does. They played crony capitalism and took a slege hammer out where a scapel was needed.

    Sorry, not buying it. Can we please stop posting the same story over and over again? This is contrived MSM BS right out of voter suppression 101.

    Same old tripe: Hillary is inevitable, Trump is facing a revolt at the convention. Trump has no money. All is lost.

    Rush used to say the media chooses the GOP’s candidate in the primaries. Forget that, they are picking our President. The neo-aristocracy is picking the President despite the country burning down. They are doing it with a brainless mob of free stuff collectors who are controlled by a media that can convince them the oceans are filled with milk and the sky is pink. Orwell could not have dreamed up this shit.

    There are no more elections. This is mob rule, plain and simple. Facts no longer matter. Reality no longer matters.

    This all brings up an interesting thought. Wouldn’t Trump be better off with his own attack dog? This shows how much the GOPe is sabotaging this guy. If this was Jeb running, the GOPe would have their designated attack dog out there already. Instead, Trump is carrying the entire load.
