    Has Biden forgotten his name yet and called himself something else?

    “Hi, I’m Ernie Tubbs and I’m running for Prime Minister of the United States.”

        And….”IF ya don’t like methen you can vote for the other Biden.”…. Perhaps he means….oh, wait, it’s like Robert Mueller testifying to the US Senate. A bad case of CRS (can’t remember stuff) unless of course it was remotely damning to the Trump Administration, then Mueller was cognizant. When caught in damning revelation by questioners, he had a bad case of dementia. Like Sleepy Joe.

      I’d demand to talk to the other jurors about how this foreperson conducted herself during deliberations. She she dominate the discussion? Was she a bully? Did she push the others in one direction over another? Was she rendering her own legal opinions during deliberation? This is all so wrong it’s hard to watch.

    No way the judge has the balls (yes… I know) to declare a mistrial. She’s so caught up in it, she has no choice but to let it stand, come up with some bullshit reason, and then let the appeals court roast her.

      ~~~~~~~FREE ROGER STONE ~~~~~~~

      During this closed Tuesday hearing on Roger Stone’s request for a new trial Judge Amy Berman Jackson called out FOX News host Tucker Carlson, stating, “Any attempts to invade the privacy of the jurors or to harass or intimidate them is completely antithetical to our system of justice.”

      Well, maybe having a judge issue a statement about a TV network in an accusatory manner when there isn’t anyone in the room to defend said news network is somewhat “antithetical to our system of justice.”

      The juror outed herself on CNN. That kangaroo judge would be smart to retire before she gets disgraced and disbarred.

      • treehouseron says:

        She won’t be disbarred, she’s doing exactly what our crooked, backwoods, kangaroo court Justice System expects her to do.

        She’s a sitting judge with unbelievable power, who can’t figure out that Tucker Carlson has free speech, she thinks she’s the only one that gets to run her mouth… because she’s a judge.

        This is the level of evil, and of stupidity, of dumbfounding hypocrisy these people have.

    • JCPOA is and always what Adolf Hitler used with such success against Neville Chamberlain, to the point where the damned fool went home to the British people and proclaimed that he had negotiated “peace for our time.” That strategy is called: appeasement.

      Europe didn’t want to think about a group of religious hot-heads having nuclear bombs, so they readily accepted the proffered statement that they had no such intention. Even when their actions plainly belied their words, Europe (and the USA) continued to hang on their words because those words were what they wanted to believe.

      Until experienced-negotiator Trump took one glance at all of it, saw right through, and said, “bullshit.” It is frankly scary to me to see just how many people in how many countries were willingly naïve.

    Conversations in the Stone courtroom
    transmitted a few minutes ago on Twitter by Darren Samuelsohn
    @dsamuelsohn of Politico
    ·
    25m
    Ginsberg tries again, asking about a Nov 2018 tweet from the jury foreperson that says “Chuck D tried to tell us.” He asks, “What does ‘Chuck D tried to tell us’ mean to you?'” She replies it’s about the lack of racial justice.

    ·
    22m
    Judge Jackson asks what else the jury foreperson posts about on social media besides politics. She replies that she will post about work, friends and her bus rides in the morning.

    ·
    21m
    Ginsberg ticking through a series of posts that the Stone team has found from her FB/Twitter feeds critical of Trump starting in Feb 2019, asking her to confirm she posted each one. The foreperson says yes to each.

    17m
    Asked what she knew about Stone before the trial, the jury foreperson replies her thinking was that he’d been arrested for the Russia probe. “I knew nothing about him other than that,” she said.

    Jury foreperson confirms she did post about the Trump impeachment and the focus on “quid pro quo” during the trial.

    12m
    Ginsberg asking the jury foreperson to explain the fist bump emojis she used in a 3:14 AM post from Nov. 15, early of the morning before the guilty verdict. Asked by the Stone lawyer if it was a sign of ‘solidarity,’ she confirms that it was.

    7m
    Ginsberg asks the jury foreperson to explain her answer again in the jury questionnaire about why she replied that she couldn’t recall writing or posting anything more than sharing “an article” about HPSCI or the Mueller probe.

    5m
    She replies, “That was the honest answer on Sept 12. It is why I didn’t check yes or no because I didn’t want to appear deceptive. I was giving the best answer I could.” She said she read that specific question to mean she should reply “in terms of Roger Stone.”

    ·
    4m
    Coming up on the 1-hour mark for the questioning of the jury foreperson.

    ·
    3m
    Stone lawyers are finished with the questions. US attorney has no questions. And with that the jury foreperson is excused.

    And with that the hearing is over. Jackson: “I’ll take the matter under advisement. Thank you everybody for staying.”

    • Actually, I think that we should(!) give a certain amount of historical credit to the Castros. They did achieve surprising successes for an island which very easily could just have been dominated either by the USA or by Russia. They continue to be regarded by their people, and I actually think that some of that regard is legitimately deserved.

      But, at the same time, their efforts on their relatively-small island country do point out some of the intrinsic dangers and weaknesses of both Socialism and Communism “as traditionally practiced.” (I think that there’s no doubt that the Castros were and still are “traditionalists.”) Cuba today has about 11 million citizens and it is very clear that the strategies that they have sought to implement “cannot ‘scale up.'”

      Unfortunately, the stubborn determination of the USA to refuse to acknowledge or to support an island nation that at one time had a three-times-a-day ferry from Key West has not helped their situation. We sometimes still act as though the Cuban Missile Crisis was still there.

        Well, to be fair, it’s a bit like Chavez took over the island. There isn’t much of s reason to be friendly with them. When Castro opened up his jails and the Marielitos came to Florida, we got political activists, poets, and artists, but also a lot of hardened criminals, including one who murdered my mother’s 3rd grade pupil on his way home from the bus stop. Castro did that on purpose.

    • Biden: “Sanders seems to have found more inspiration in the Soviets, Sandinistas, Chavistas, and Castro than in America. His admiration for elements of Castro’s dictatorship or at least willingness to look past Cuba’s human rights violations is not just dangerous, it is deeply offensive.”

      Obama, after his sleepovers with the Castros, embarked on his own educational project, lecturing Argentinian schoolchildren:

      “So often in the past there’s been a sharp division between left and right, between capitalist and communist or socialist. And especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate, right? Oh, you know, you’re a capitalist Yankee dog, and oh, you know, you’re some crazy communist that’s going to take away everybody’s property. And I mean, those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it neatly fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory — you should just decide what works. And I said this to President Castro in Cuba. I said, look, you’ve made great progress in educating young people.”

      Notice how communists are people who “take away property”–not rights and lives. And that’s an “intellectual argument”, not a life and death struggle.

      What freak show. What a debacle. It’s great!

    Joe diGenova here on the Howie Carr Show. Classic Joe, good & bad, but some items worth discussing.

    – He blames Jessie Liu for being unqualified to prosecute McCabe. Really? Not compromised & surrounded by snakes?

    Joe says he has confidence in Barr; but doesn’t Barr supervise Liu?

    McCabe – aka “Pajama Boy”! He may be smaller than Bloomberg. Explains a few things. Not a traditional LEO or FBI man. Super diminutive.

    Great idea: FIRE everyone involved in the 5 AM raid of Roger Stone’s home.

    • Hey… many of “these Democrats” are, right now, sitting Senators!

      Therefore: “okay, mister Senator, show us your legislation!”

      Kindly remember that you possess many powers right now which, if you actually became POTUS, you would give up. Therefore, if you are actually as serious about these things as you would like for us to be convinced that you are, then surely you would be very-vigorously pursuing these same issues right now!

      Of course you would … of course … of …
