      I don’t doubt that its a good podcast… much as this site is a valuable resource I was only turned onto a couple months ago. But what purpose is served by this never-ending stream of blogs and posts back and forth to each other about how rotten it all is? We’re preaching to the choir.

      Either the remaining slivers of honest government are taking action to STOP this from continuing, the people need to revolt, or we ought to just accept it and move on. I find it unlikely there is anything new in that podcast or the next few CTH posts that will enlighten us any further to some huge new fact that changes the fundamental premise: the people are not in control of their republic. And no one is doing anything about it except bitching. I certainly do not exempt myself from that statement: my goal right now with a decent life and kids is to keep my head attached to my body.

      Trust the 4D chess plan my behind. Just exhausted venting, I guess.

        Venting is important, sharing ideas is important, but I basically agree with what you’re saying. The fact is, we have Trump but very few others who are fighting for us, working for us, in actual positions of power. We have an awful lot of big mouths on the Internet talking about how wrong everything is (including us here) who have little to no power.

        bromo, Andrew Breitbart worked for years, since the early 1990s iirc. Breitbart made huge strides before his life was ended.
        Others picked up the fight, which eventually brought us the Tea Party, Freedom Caucus, and Donald J Trump as President.

        Take a break. We all do. Come back when you are ready. We will be here waiting to welcome you back. But we never quit. Think if Pres Trump had quit, and thank Our Lord that Pres Trump, and we, did not quit.

        As we Marines say, hope is not a battle plan. We fight. Most especially when we are completely surrounded, which is the best possible situation – no friendly fire!

        “the people need to revolt,”
        ——
        Before that, tens, hundreds of thousands of people need to MARCH and PROTEST their asses off in the STREETS. Ya see that happenin’? Me either.

        If people won’t get off the couch or the internet to gather in numbers and make the damned commie criminals killing their country hear their voices…

        ….if people are too afraid to do that, afraid they’ll be put on a list or something…

        ….then those people darned sure aren’t gonna “revolt”, ’cause ain’t none but *maybe* 50 of ’em across the country will go down shooting for what they believe in. Everyone else? After they see those 50 get slaughtered by the police state using choppers, tanks, machine guns, snipers, flash bangs, and shaped charges….they’ll fall right in line, shrugging their shoulders saying “What am I gonna do? Die for freedom? I worked too hard all my life for a good retirement and I’m gonna take it. I ain’t dyin’ for nobody or nuthin’.”

          Did you forget the Tea Party Marches and PROTESTS???

          Did you EVER see them WELL covered by the Yellow Stream Media with HONEST film footage?

          Washington Post: ‘Tea party’ protesters gather in Washington to rally against taxes, spending

          Friday, April 16, 2010 “[…] Thousands of conservative “tea party” activists streamed into the nation’s capital Thursday to protest Obama administration policies and denounce what they regard as excessive taxation and government spending.

          Rallies at Freedom Plaza and later in the shadow of the Washington Monument were timed to coincide with tax day, the April 15 deadline for filing federal income tax returns. For the second year in a row, opponents of President Obama gathered in sun-splashed weather to cheer speakers and vent their anger about government policies. More than 1,500 smaller protests were staged alongside state and local government offices nationwide, tea party organizers said. […]”

      In my view, the President was always safe from impeachment. Our enemy knows full well that if they even tried that nonsense that the American people would not stand idly by and allow that to happen. At all. Civil War 2.0 would start the next day. President Trump can only be boxed in if he allows himself to be boxed in. He can pull the plug on all this any time he wants. He has the final option to put all these criminals in jail at his convenience.

      I recall Mark Cuban saying that PTrump’s family will go bankrupt and be ruined because he announced his candidacy. I blew Cuban’s comments off at the time. Looking back with 20-20 hindsight I think it was a how dare he. The deep state doesn’t want outsiders – they want to hand the baton over to their choice. The way Mueller and Dems are going after PTrump it’s meant to scare off any outsider trying to run. Mueller and Hillary aren’t the type to back off of anything and will fight irrationally to the bitter end. PTrump isn’t either, although he may back off of things for a while. It’s going to very ugly after the new year starts. Lindsey is trying to negotiate a truce- both side lay down their lawfare weaponry.

          The earlier comment about useless venting is especially appropriate when it comes to the endless whining to “fire Mueller.”

          Why would you fire someone when you’ve already beaten them? President Trump gave his answers and Mueller has nowhere to go with it so it’s done. Shoot, only a few months ago, the Rats were begging for Mueller to be fired. They knew it was the end of the line.

            “President Trump gave his answers and Mueller has nowhere to go with it so it’s done.”

            I doubt it, even though Giuliani and Dershowitz think it was a great idea. IMO, they view the situation through a prism that clearly defines the constitutionality of the President’s actions, while the Dems care not about the Constitution and seek only to malign the President and continue to successfully obstruct his MAGA agenda. You can’t expect to appease the devil with honesty and truth.

            Anyone with any legal acumen advised the President to avoid either being interviewed by Mueller or providing him with written responses of any kind. Both Mueller and the Dems who will soon be in control of the House will have their way with the President’s words, obscuring, parsing, misrepresenting, and/or ignoring to his detriment the proper content and context of his commentary. They will use his words to advance their current attacks on him and to initiate new ones. We know how the Dems behave.

            Moreover, Mueller’s required assessment of the President’s answers provides sufficient cover for him to elongate indefinitely his investigative charade.

            IMO, the President has replenished the grist mill he has sought to shut-down.

    Part of Mueller’s legacy – 5,000 dead American troops and thousands more missing one or more limbs, and trillions of dollars spent, for nothing achieved even remotely worth that price, all based on things non-existent or highly exaggerated.

    Alan makes some really good points here. The Ninth stepping in and disallowing the asylum EO is a major case for SCOTUS. I love the law and have studied it for years, (Para Legal/Criminal Justice Degrees). This case is great, it pits Legal Statute against Constitutional powers given to the President.

    It will be very interesting to see how they rule and what the dissenters write. We are living is historic times. Even when I get depressed about something (mid terms), I love being alive right now.

      Roberts has publicly criticized the President for expressing his opinion about the Ninth Circuit. His doing so could be a “tell” that the President can’t count on his vote when the case lands in the SCOTUS. If the case is as “close” as Dershowitz says it is, it will be easy for Roberts to vote against the President for the sole purpose of spite.

  9. Dershowwitz concludes by saying, in effect, both sides are equally guilty of criminalizing political differences. And with that, my respect for him goes right down the tubes.

    Great points by the professor, IMO.

    Loved his comments on the Mueller questions, the obvious perjury trap element to them, and how Trump’s legal team (and Trump himself) can answer the questions without putting POTUS in legal jeopardy.

    And on Ivanka, her lawyer said that none of the emails contained classified information. If that’s true, there’s no there there as regards an investigation.

    Dershowitz missed the mark when commenting about President Trump and the makeup of the 9th Circuit, “…a lot of them are Trump appointees.” No, not even close. As of 18 Oct 2018, of the court’s 29: 9 are Clinton appointees, 5 are GW Bush appointees, 7 are Obama appointees and a paltry 2 are Trump appointees. Hardly what I’d call “a lot of them.” There are six vacancies. Maybe McConnell can expedite Trump’s five pending nominees.

    I think Dershowitz is a day late and a dollar short—don’t weaponize departments against your political opponents? Hillary is not above the law–Comey, Obama, Lynch, etc ad nauseum are not above the law–this is not about politics–this is about enforcing and respecting our laws. To make it a political thing, downplays the seriousness of the issue and crimes.

      If you all listened to Bongino at the link above, Dershowitz is marching in lockstep with Maggie Haberman article to frame everything about the deep corruption within the Clinton Foundation and their pay to play while Hillary was Secretary of State as just going after them politically. Absolute hogwash. Dershowitz hasn’t changed his spots but he is an old Dem who hasn’t moved too far left with the marxists.

    For those who also hate watching videos, a summary* is that it was smart to answer questions in writing to avoid a perjury trap. That’s it. They go on to talk about non Mueller legal issues in last half. But that’s it for the Mueller insight.

    FWIW, I was not aware that Trump had answered questions in writing yet.

    Dershowitz is being disingenuous regarding the law on the asylum issue. 8 U.S.C. 1182 states the following:

    Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

    This is the law the Supreme Court upheld in Hawaii v. Trump. This not a close case. The president will win.
