    Congressional Hearings ^ | 6/19/18 | Self
    Okay, so I'm watching the congressional hearings this morning. They are questioning IG Horowitz. At 12:35 PM EDT, maybe 2 hours in, Rep Jordan is questioning Horowitz. At that point Shirley Jackson Lee interrupts with "Parliamentary procedure" question. It's not of's an attempt to make a political point. BUT she says, and I quote "and as well to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein which they’re planning to do on Friday” They certainly seemed, in the investigation that makes the case that Rosenstein should be fired. Somebody else want to confirm?

With no other candidates seeking the job, the GOP winner would become the sheriff for a four-year term. Maggs defeated Gramkow by a margin of almost 3 to 1.

    Continuing his cross-country book tour, former FBI Director James Comey railed against the National Rifle Association and disputed claims that he was considering running for political office. According to the Miami Herald, Comey briefly touched on gun rights in the wake of recent mass shooting tragedies, telling readers at a book event in Miami that the NRA "sells fear" to gun owners. As for specific gun laws that should be put in place to prevent similar shootings like the Parkland, Florida School shooting in February, Comey said he would support "reasonable restrictions" to current laws. He shot down criticism that...

    The National Rifle Association has filed a lawsuit over Florida’s new gun law, which increases the age to buy rifles in the state from 18 to 21. Republican Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill yesterday. Yet, the pro-Second Amendment organization should consider joining another lawsuit in Virginia, where a social worker was reportedly fired for being a concealed carry holder. On Facebook yesterday, Storm Durham, a social services worker, described how three Roanoke police officers escorted her out of her office. She said some of the officers had accompanied her on child services visits. Durham was also not allowed to...

    Okay, “fired” probably isn’t the technical term for it. The worker in question actually submitted his resignation. But do we really think this was a decision he arrived at on his own? Unlikely at best. But the Washington Post reports that the letter of resignation was accepted by the boss and he’s no longer working there. (I’ll repeat the fact that we don’t actually know the worker’s gender, but I’m going with “he” by default. My apologies if this turns out to be a woman.)But there’s another, somewhat more disturbing angle to this story, which started out as terrifying but...

    Back around Thanksgiving time, we looked at some groundbreaking reporting from the Washington Free Beacon where they exposed some less than media-neutral activities by one member of the press. Janell Ross, a political reporter for the Washington Post, was found to have participated in a highly secretive, big dollar fundraising and strategy conference for the Democrats. To be clear, Ross was not there reporting on the conference as part of her job. She wrote no articles about it and the WaPo said they didn’t even know that she had gone. She was a participant in the event, even sitting in...

    Restaurant busboys, in line to earn a little more dough this year as minimum wage hikes hit across the country, are instead losing their jobs as chains look to cut costs. One chain axing jobs is Red Robin, which hopes to save about $8 million this year by eliminating busboys at each of its 570 restaurants, the company said Monday. Red Robin restaurants are located mostly in Western states, where the minimum wage has risen more quickly.

    It is one of the most shocking and drastic shakeups of the District Attorney's Office that anyone can recall. But it most definitely should not come as any surprise to those who had been following the campaign promises of Larry Krasner. The purge was on full display as the file boxes kept rolling out of the D.A.'s office. Thirty-one staffers, including a number of murder squad prosecutors, high ranking deputies and division chiefs were among those terminated.

    All I want for Christmas is for Jeff Sessions, on Christmas Eve, to have a press brief about the indictments of Hillary on a charge of "gross negligence" with classified material and lying to the FBI. Comey should catch an indictment as an accessory or for "Obstruction of Justice". Then buy popcorn stocks as the following ensues: 1) Merry Christmas for the American People, who would then know that there are not two justice systems; one for those named Clinton and one for everyone else, 2) Trump could then publicly ask Sessions to "Go easy on Hillary", and watch the...
