Special Counsel Robert Mueller closes Russia probe, says charging Trump with a crime was ‘not an option’
Now it’s time for the word games and the left will run wild with this one. Mueller said this.
“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mueller said.”
Oh boy, talk about fresh meat for the left. They will use this statement for a long time to justify the never ending Trump-Russia collusion hoax. However it seems a bit disingenuous for Mueller to say that when he follows up with this.
“Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider,” Mueller explained, adding that “it would be unfair to accuse someone of a crime when there could be no court resolution of the charge.”
Unfair to accuse someone? Right after you clearly insinuated that very thing? Mueller knows full well he has just given the Trump haters the opportunity they sought for endless speculation about what he found in his investigation. His sour grapes are that he simply didn’t have a court option to resolve it or he would have. That’s the impression he wishes to leave as he retires from the office.
What an ass. Mueller knows he could have merely outlined his mandate to investigate and leave any decisions about indictment up to the Justice Department as was clearly the case. Yet he had to show his bias and insure the anti-Trumpers can live on. Only a very small man without integrity would do so. Mueller is clearly that man.
Horrors! Nancy Pelosi claims that President Trump is engaged in a cover-up. Is she right? Why yes, she is.
Until all information possible is released which will clearly implicate Obama and Clinton orchestrating the fake Russian collusion narrative, then yes you can say he is covering up. Many on the right aren’t happy with Trump for continuing to keep this information under wraps. The implications with foreign governments as well as our own intelligence agencies are going to be very unpleasant if Trump does release the info. Trump claims to waiting until the time is right. Some say the time has already passed.
The bottom line is that until all information legally possible to release is released, a cover-up is an appropriate statement. Not because Trump is guilty and covering up but the vast extent of the collusion amongst our allies and various agencies withing our government that has yet to be fully exposed. Once that happens and the appropriate legal actions are enforced on the guilty, and then when the appropriate political fallout occurs, we will finally be able to say there is no longer a cover-up. This will include damage to our allies, but it’s a necessary evil. So I say stay strong Nancy. Keep beating those cover-up drums. It will be your party that suffers the most once you get your wish, but that karma is a bitch.
Unintended consequences. My, my, my, how inconvenient they are. For example, we are now seeing in excess of 100,000 illegal aliens cross into America each month. The left will tell you it isn’t of any concern, we have no crisis. However, they will also tell you we only have until 2030 to save the planet due to climate change. A strange thing happens when someone crosses our border. Their carbon footprint increases. Dramatically. An MIT study confirmed this. So much so that the average American generates more than double the global average.
The somewhat disquieting bottom line is that in the United States, even people with the lowest energy usage account for, on average, more than double the global per-capita carbon emission. And those emissions rise steeply from that minimum as people’s income increases.
You may say, wait, these are just poor migrants who have nothing. How can they possibly produce such a large carbon footprint? According to the study, it doesn’t matter.
“Regardless of income, there is a certain floor below which the individual carbon footprint of a person in the U.S. will not drop,” says Timothy Gutowski, professor of mechanical engineering, who taught the class that calculated the rates of carbon emissions.
This is most unfortunate. The democrat policy is to import as many future democrat voters into the country as possible at the expense of taxpaying Americans. Yet they are robbing Peter to pay Paul. They are securing their future political stranglehold on the country but in the process destroying the country. Not my opinion, the study says so.
The average annual carbon dioxide emissions per person, they found, was 20 metric tons, compared to a world average of four tons.
But the “floor” below which nobody in the U.S. can reach, no matter a person’s energy choices, turned out to be 8.5 tons, the class found. That was the emissions calculated for a homeless person who ate in soup kitchens and slept in homeless shelters.
Yes, even a poor fuzzy lovable bunny rabbit of a migrant escaping untold inhumanity elsewhere somehow becomes a planet killing machine once they hit our shores. Even one who contributes nothing to our society but is here merely to survive on our welfare system and pull the democrat only vote arm at the ballot box contributes more than twice the average of our global human companions. Even using the minimum calculation shows that 100,000 illegal alien felons are pumping out 850,000 tons of CO2 each year into our atmosphere that is already overflowing with man made carbon emissions. Each and every month now America is adding another 850,000 tons of CO2 on top of our already planet killing amount.
Just think. According to the study, if those illegal alien felons simply stayed on the Mexican side of the border their carbon footprint would be cut in half. Something to remember when you vote in 2020. Vote democrat and you are guaranteeing our existence on the planet will be shortened. Hey, I didn’t do the study. I’m merely reporting the results of a public institution of higher learning filled with indoctrinated students. There certainly is no bias toward climate change fraud. Voting left is a vote for death! I kinda like that. Maybe I’ll pass it on for Teflon Don to use in 2020.
p.s. Never fear. Apocalyptic planet ending climate change is a fraud. No matter how many new democrat voters cross into our country they will still be very much alive in 2030 surviving on American welfare. Just don’t tell the left. Let them explain how they can ethically promote speeding up the demise of the planet just to guarantee they will have ‘elected official’ engraved on their headstone.
Of all the discussion about Buttigieg’s appearance on Fox last night, one revealing point isn’t being talked about. His stance on abortion. No, not the pro-abortion stance. The government shouldn’t be involved stance.
Asked about third-trimester abortions, Buttigieg asserted that such cases were rare and typically involved an unforeseen circumstance, before refusing to endorse any restrictions whatsoever on late-term abortions. Government statistics indicate that in 2015, approximately 1.3 percent of abortions were performed after 20 weeks.
“I trust women to draw the line,” Buttigieg said. “That decision [to have an abortion] is not going to be made any better, medically or morally, because the government is dictating how that decision should be made.”
Because the government is “dictating” decisions? If you are against government involvement in creating law where none existed as is the case of abortion in the Constitution, then you must support overturning Roe vs. Wade. By the way, I agree. Just as government shouldn’t be involved in so many things such as marriage. They shouldn’t create law to approve or disapprove. A very Libertarian approach, wouldn’t you say? Because you can’t have it both ways. If you believe government shouldn’t legislate a woman’s body this also means they shouldn’t legislate an aspect of it you do agree with. Therefore, Roe vs. Wade has to go.
Not that any of this wouldn’t create huge practical issues. If government is completely out of the picture concerning a woman and her body, then if that woman decides to murder her unborn baby she will have to face the legal consequences just as anyone would who murders another human being. As would the doctor performing the procedure. As it should be when you commit murder. This isn’t a gray area. We aren’t talking about a woman making a decision to remove a body part, we’re talking about a separate entity, another living human being.
Certainly this isn’t what the pro-abortion crowd is after when they demand government stay out of their vaginas. They simply want it their way. Unfortunately, with life altering decisions come consequences. That is the slippery slope that comes with demanding society acquiesce to your beliefs. Progressives would have you believe they can use the power of government and law to enforce their particular agenda, yet expect it to step aside when inconvenient. Mayor Buttigieg is one of them. He wants a proactive government on his core issues including gay marriage. He stated in the Fox town hall that abortion is a woman’s right. Sorry, that’s not how rights work. For it to truly be a viable right, when one exercises it, it cannot infringe upon another’s. Snuffing out a baby’s life qualifies here as the right of the mother does not trump the right of the baby.
Hopefully some reporter with a passing interest will ask Mayor Pete about his ala carte approach to government involvement in our right’s and our lives. He simply can’t pick and choose ‘only when it fits my narrative’ involvement. Do what your promoting mayor Pete. Call for the repeal of Roe vs. Wade.
Yes AOC, you lied and it’s indisputable.
The key word is “victimized”.
No Twitter limitation. No context error. No missed clues. Physicians, who happen to be a woman, are not victims when they perform an abortion. No one misinterpreted what you said or what you meant. Just own it and move on. You simply look ridiculous trying to twist your own words.
Really Joe? Are you going to make it this easy? Wordsmithing used to be a crafty endeavor but Bill Clinton permanently tarnished it with his ridiculous defense of the word ‘is’. I guess Sleepy Joe figures it’s tried and true so he’s going with it here.
Here is his statement.
“We never once discussed it when he was there,” Biden told the Associated Press. “There’s not a single bit of evidence that’s been shown in any reporting that’s been done that he ever talked about it with me or asked any government official for a favor.”
So silly. We never once discussed it? How about multiple times? When he was there? But you could have when he was elsewhere. No evidence shown in any reporting? Doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, only that it hasn’t come out in a news report. Asked for a favor? No Joe, he didn’t ask, you made the demand remember?
It’s easy to see how greasy politicians like Biden put out carefully lawyer vetted statements like this one to deflect interest from the public. Nothing to see here. Yet just a cursory interest in reading between the lines yields a wealth of opportunities to deceive.
Let me see if I can help Joe. How about you release this statement instead.
I, Joe Biden, nor anyone acting on my behalf, have ever taking any action which has had any effect, either real or perceived, to impact my son’s business dealings in Ukraine.
How’s that? Simple and straightforward yet extremely broad in covering any aspect of how Biden could have influenced his son’s career. Now we know Sleepy Joe can’t make that statement because he would be lying instead of wordsmithing his way around the truth. His statement may very well be 100% correct in the technical sense of exactly when or where something occurred. But not in the spirit of it and that isn’t a legal threshold.
In the end a completely useless exercise. Those who support Biden continue to do so and vice-versa. And I have just wasted my time and yours by pointing out that politicians lie as if that’s new.
Do you believe murdering the infant presiding in your body gives you “legal control” Alyssa? How much control does one have in today’s uber p.c. world? For example what if you’re an anti-vaccer? It’s your body right, shouldn’t you decide what drugs you put in it? How about the clothes you wear? Or don’t wear? Who should have any right to tell you what type, style or color of clothes you should wear on your body or that you should have to wear any at all? It’s your body after all.
We could go on and on with examples like substances you ingest or how you expel things from your body (ewww). The words you speak from your body are limited. The very thoughts you have in your mind can be controlled. Just try to do as you please, say what you want when you want, go wherever you like, your body is constrained in a variety of ways either by law or socially acceptable standards.
You may be denied access to somewhere or something based upon how you conduct your bodily actions. Actions include the spoken word as well as what you think. Don’t believe it? Just post on your social media something that you merely thought with no intention of acting on that violates some one else’s definition of socially acceptable. You may be banned, shamed, or even charged with a violation of law. Do you ever really have full legal control of your body Alyssa?
The fact is there are controls over what can go in your body and what can come out of your body. It may be physical, audible, what you see or hear or even think. There are all sorts of repercussions to these actions or inactions you do every day. You may say wait, these controls are all for when your actions or inactions affect other people. You may sicken them or offend them or deny them or just in some way negatively impact them.
I would say thank you for making my point. Doesn’t it negatively impact you when you are murdered in the womb? C’mon Alyssa, aren’t we discussing legal rights over one’s body? If you think it’s a right remember the key point when having that discussion. A right cannot be taken away by others and when you exercise your right you cannot infringe upon another’s. Pretty sure exercising your perceived legal right over your body is infringing upon another’s.
Rights don’t abdicate responsibility. An unwanted pregnancy is included as you’re certainly educated enough to know the risks. This is also why there are exceptions to abortion laws for rape and incest. Fairness? Is it fair that a female is saddled with the potential to become pregnant when they don’t wish to (and perhaps even practice some method of birth control)? Sorry, take that up with the Good Lord when you see him. Tons of unfair things in this world that we have no control over (baby born with a birth defect?).
So no Alyssa, you should never have the legal, ethical or moral right to murder another human merely because it’s your body. It’s only because you were irresponsible or changed your mind that an abortion issue ever came to be (exceptions addressed earlier). If the hand you were dealt when born female is unfair take it up with your maker. Until then let others have their chance at life just as you were gifted.
In today’s edition of A+O+C=zero, our leader of the Democrat Party, AOC, has yet another brilliant idea to save the country
Does she even realize how right she is? The USPS has been a non-profit forever and would indeed be the ideal vehicle for a banking system that can’t make money. In fact the USPS has such a horrific track record it bears revisiting an article from over 50 years ago that illustrates no amount of time is sufficient for government run programs to become efficient.
Forget profitable, how about just stop being a money pit? Kinda cool reading about dreams of the future before we even had a fax machine though.
The premise of AOC and crazy Bernie is that absent a profit motive the government can better deliver basic services to Americans. Reality is that USPS banking would merely result in yet another taxpayer subsidized wealth transfer. It’s merely taking money from those who actually pay taxes and giving it to the poor. No different than any other progressive socialist program that empowers the government and people like AOC and Sanders.
