Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Hey, wonder what was really going on here? A friend sent along a link to a 2010 story in the El Paso Times newspaper, chronicling a plea agreement entered into by a business owned by the parents of Irish Bob ORourke. The extremely carefully-worded article says that the plea deal related to charges of accepting cash payments totaling $630,745 from an unidentified customer and then altering receipts to circumvent IRS disclosure laws.
The story goes into the following detail:
By pleading guilty, Charlottes admitted that on 15 occasions from May 12, 2005, through October 6, 2006, one or more of its employees separated cash transactions into multiple receipts. The beginning amounts ranged from $22,000 to $50,000.
But the records were manipulated by the store so every receipt listed a transaction of less than $10,000. This meant the cash sales were not reported to the IRS, as they should have been, prosecutors said.
Ill leave it to the reader to figure out exactly what was going on here. This story is of course being studiously ignored by the Texas and national news media, because theyre all-in for fake Beto.
And speaking of Texas congress members An unpaid intern for Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was arrested yesterday by Capitol Police for being the jackass who released private information about several GOP members of the U.S. Senate while the Kavanaugh/Ford hearing was taking place last week. Interestingly, he was releasing that information onto the Internet right about the same time as Cong. Lee made a surprise appearance in the hearing room, as she walked up to Ford lawyer Mike Bromwich and handed him a white envelope whose contents remain a mystery.
Gosh, wonder what that was about? Surely it was completely unrelated and Cong. Lee knew nothing NOTHING about her interns nefarious activities. Surely.
Cong. Lee claims the envelope contained notes from women who wanted to get into the hearing but could not, which makes pretty much no sense at all, but with Sheila one never knows. It makes even less sense when you watch the video at this link, which shows that the Congresswoman in fact had a second envelope in her other hand, but the camera cuts away before we see who she handed that one to.
But about this intern, here is my main question: This guy his name is Jackson Kosko is a 27 year-old male of the species who has apparently been kicking around Capitol Hill in various Democrat offices as an unpaid intern for five years. Nobody does that. Interns generally last a year, maybe two before they either get a paying job on the Hill or their parents get tired of paying their bills and they have to go get a real job.
Mr. Kosko allegedly committed a felony here and is being arraigned this morning. I have a feeling there is more to this story than meets the eye.
Meanwhile, over at the Justice Department This is happening later this morning:

Now, no one knows what this is all about yet, and it could be entirely unrelated to anything having to do with the Obama-era cabal within the DOJ and FBI that conspired to fix the 2016 election. But here are few interesting things to note about this:
The National Security Division at DOJ has oversight over counter-intelligence operations at the FBI, and the whole Crossfire Hurricane operation in 2016 was managed through the FBIs counter-intel division, headed at the time by infamous ex-FBI super duper agent Peter Strzok.
Earlier in the day on Wednesday, former FBI general counsel James Baker gave what some described as explosive testimony behind closed doors before a joint House Committee, in which he told lawmakers that the FBIs handling of the Russia probe was abnormally managed and politically biased against the Trump Administration.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was issued a subpoena by the House Judiciary Committee to personally appear on Capitol Hill at noon ET today, and bring with him a bunch of the documents the Committee has been trying to obtain for more than a year, many of which relate back to Crossfire Hurricane and other cabal-related actions within the FBI and DOJ. That subpoena was issued 6 days ago and no one noticed because of the circus surrounding the Kavanaugh confirmation.
Again, no way to know if the DOJ press conference this morning relates to any or all of this, but it sure is interesting stuff, regardless.
Otherwise, Wednesday was a very slow news day and nothing much else happ oh, wait The FBIs needless investigation into the obviously false allegations being leveled at Judge Kavanaugh is finished, and the report is being made available to all senators starting this morning. Mitch McConnell filed for cloture on the nomination last night at 10:00 ET, meaning the cloture vote will be held on Friday, with the final confirmation vote possibly taking place as soon as Saturday under the Senates expedited rules on these nominations.
So the Democrat/medias delay game is over, but no one should expect them to give up their campaign to destroy Judge Kavanaugh. These people are demented, depraved and despicable, and they will keep up their false charges and protest actions so long as they believe it gives them any political benefit at all.
Louisiana Senator John Kennedy summed up the Democrats perfectly yesterday: Some of my colleagues on the Democratic side are in good faith. Some Im convincedI could be convinced, Im rapidly being convinceddont have a soul.
Exactly. The sad fact is that there are no decent people remaining in the Democrat Party in our nations capitol. Not one. Many of them like Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein, Cory Booker, Patrick Leahy, Richard Blumenthal and others are soulless ghouls who are willing to do or say literally anything in order to re-obtain political power.
So even if Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed and sworn-in to the Supreme Court, expect the campaign to destroy his life to continue for some time to come. Because this is who these people are and it is what they do.
That is all.

The Qtards would say Sessions was aware of the Ford Plot and Sessions let them have all the rope they could spool off. I may be reconsidering Q later.
Can’t say for sure on Q either. However, I watched a speech by Sessions a while back. I have a hard time believing he is the weak patsy so many believe him to be.
Well his nickname is Silent Executioner.
“Well his nickname is Silent Executioner.”
Then we need a Loud Executioner.
wastoute, I cannot find anything about the 9:30AM DOJ press announcement. Has it been cancelled?
Came to FR just to check on the press conference!!
“Well his nickname is Silent Executioner.”
That’s a myth. Never had that nickname back when he was an AG or US Attorney.
Sigh. I was afraid it was just me, not being able to find anything this morning. Shucks. I was really hoping against hope that they were actually going to announce they’ve arrested some real criminals.
Concerning Beto: I saw his latest commercial this morning. He mentions negative ads that have run recently about him but he doesn’t say they are false or inaccurate. It seems to me that he does not want his voting record to be known by the public.
All he ever does in his ads is say gobbly gook about working together, which we all know is something politicians say when their voting record reveals who they are.

To save you some time: THE RUSSIANS!!!!1!
I didnt see anything.
I think so too. I've yet to see any real evidence to support the claim.
It's amazing the nonsense people believe.
They announced indictment of 7? Russian cybercriminals for hacking into chem weapons databases and mucking around with doping of Olympians... (Very rough paraphrase... -- nothing to do with Rosenstein, Trump or Kavanaugh...)
But, if you want something to "sink your teeth into", Sessions is -- right now -- meeting with the Senate Judiciary Committee. Read the Senate Judiciary Subpoena PDF here... (Note the declassification and unredaction of the documents he will bring with him.)
If you think you can handle my "take" on the above, here 'tis...
So are perpetual interns in Congress possibly more CIA plants?
In reference to “Some of you (you know who you are) can start tying on your bibs — in preparation for your forthcoming huge Corvus Feast!”
I’ve almost (just almost) given up on Sessions. Sigh.
What is the reference to Corvus Feast? Enlighten me, please. :)
Well -- you did ask... '-)
P.S. Don't give up on Sessions yet. (From a fellow FReeper who is privy to info that you [by choice] choose to disregard...)
EATING CROW!! :p LOVE IT!!!
Advice: never play 3-D chess against Trump & MI...
