    Not Telling
  1. Not so much. I like the notion of No Loot / No Shoot.
  2. Amendment VI In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense. I have no idea what you're talking about. Whose jury trial rights have been violated by Obame, et.cet.?
  3. Ahh, so now we're down to Democrats not being vigorous enough in their objections, and sympathizing with demonstrators too much. I'd be quite content to see those mayors in cities that let demonstrations turn violent be removed from office, especially in Portland, Seattle and probably Minneapolis. If I were speaking for Biden, I'd advise those Mayors that they won't get a penny of Federal help to rebuild, and the DoJ will act against officials who let the rule of law lapse so completely.
  4. Excellent. What states that are heavily dependent on mail order voting (the Dakotas have for many years) have had problems.
  5. Yuor response is pretty much what I thought I'd get. Democrats calling for violence are a part of the standard PG mythology, like Obama's being Kenyan (and Muslim!), and Hillary's murdering Vincent Foster, etc. People just know it's true, even if they can't identify the Democrats doing it.
  6. Yes. But politically, it's dominated by a church of which Romney is/was a bishop.
  7. I don't think that is remotely possible. There is zero evidence of fraud, just now, and nonetheless legislatures all over the country are shortening early voting, eliminating mail order ballot practices, etc. As long as Trump says he was robbed, the bulk of his base will believe it, and the GOP will seek to complicate voting as best it can.
  8. He seems to be the sole survivor of the storm; widely respected in his home state, and got a new six years recently. Trump hates him, but the schedule doesn't permit him to line up a primary challenger.
  9. Knee is a work in progress, as expected. I'll be off the beach and off boats for awhile.
  10. Quote me something worse. Really.
  11. To assist the overly literal-minded, the question posed is not whether you can register as Republican if you disbelieve in Trump's claim of a stolen election. Perhaps I should say "Can you hold elective office as a Republican if you disagree with Trump that the election was stolen?" Does that help? Answering my own question, the answer is No. Disagree with Trump on this, defend the election, you are an Enemy and and he will denounce you and seek a primary candidate to replace you. Liz is just the latest purge victim that began as Trump ascended.
  12. It was. Cheney has a conservative voting record. She supported Trump in the primary. She's dabbled in the Birther hoax. She may retain her GOP registration, but rejecting the stolen-election lie is ending her leadership role, Trump has selected and endorsed a primary challenger against her. Should I have said "Can you hold elective office as a Republican if you dispute the Trump claim of a stolen election?" Not even remotely close. Rep. Waters called for strong, confrontational demonstrations. Any number of Democrats have endorsed demonstrations. I don't think anyone's called for political violence. I see that claimed here, along claims of hundreds and thousands of rapes and murders by BLM and Antifa; yet no one backs it up. And there has been nothing remotely equivalent to the assault on the Capitol, or President Trump's call to Sen. Tuberville to stop the count. That was an attempt to preempt a Constitutionally mandated event in the election calendar, nothing less.
  13. All good clean fun on the falcon's part. I can't fault their instincts, an eagle would be perfectly happy to snatch a fledging from the nest. As predators go, bald eagles are pretty lazy.
  14. At President Trump's request, the various AUSAs were instructed to prosecute any election fraud cases they found. In his comment, Barr said that there was "no significant election fraud." There have been a few cases of people forging Grandma's signature on a mail-in ballot, of course, but nothing that statistically would matter. I'm not sure how many AUSAs there actually are (speaking of the top guys who run each district, not the line attorneys.) If they investigate and find nothing, there may or may not be a public comment. I suspect that the DoJ followed developments in the much-contested, much-audited states (Ga., Penna., the parts of a couple of other states that were only audited in select counties) and never saw anything to justify empaneling a grand jury.
  15. That's one mean-minded peregrine. Defending territory with a nest, I suspect.
