Coming to a head as clarity peeks above the surface here and there

Clarice Feldman: ‘Collusion’ Collapses: Dem Congressional Espionage Ring Takes Center Ring – “In truth, the Russians “colluded” through GPS Fusion to harm, not help, Trump and the evidence of that is coming out.” Then there is the history: the Plame case, Whitewater, the misuse of classified information, and special versus independent counels. There is a lack of predicate and other malfeasance in this history – did you know that “Last year, Libby sought and received a reinstatement of his law license and an investigation was held, with counsel confirming his innocence” ? The same players are doing it again and the parallels are striking.

It’s time to repeal the Special Counsel law which has now been used twice to hamstring two Republican Presidents, has dubious constitutional authority, and will never result in the indictment of a prominent Democratic politician.

While the press has been promoting a ridiculous and ass backwards Russian collusion story, it has been sitting on a far bigger story: The likelihood that the Congressional Democrats financed and enabled the largest espionage ring in U.S. history.

Buckle your seatbelts. Draining the swamp is going to create a lot of waves.

Meanwhile, people are noting the effort that went into uncovering the provenance of a letter a nine year old sent to the President and how this compares to the lack of effort in digging into Fusion GPS and related scandals.

Rober Simon: Proliferating Scandals Make Mueller Investigation Ludicrous – “Even if Mueller were even-handed and the exact right person for the job — an open question at the moment — no single special counsel could handle all this. It’s a game of whack-a-mole to beat all games of whack-a-mole. Let’s enumerate the scandals as of this moment, several or all of which are or could be connected.”

Quite a litany, huh? Are all six connected? It’s hard to say at this time. Maybe all are or none are. I would imagine it’s some, if not all. But they’re all connected morally — plus beneath all this are the endless leaks, which I suppose could constitute a scandal of their own.

Now let’s play that game from Sesame Street — “One of these things is not like the others.” Yes, you got it. It’s number one. In that case, Republicans are under suspicion. In the other five, it’s the Democrats. And yet the only one under official investigation by Robert Mueller and crew is one. Something rotten in the state of…? You bet!

Daniel John Sobieski: Political Unmasking of Team Trump Must Be Prosecuted

Despite multiple investigations of alleged Russian collusion dating back to Trump’s, shocking to liberals and progressives, election, the only crimes we know have been committed have been the leaking of classified information by Trump opponents, starting with the illegal unmasking of former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn.

This is nothing less than an attempted coup, sedition against the government of the United States by official sworn to uphold the Constitution.

Sen. Tim Kaine has carelessly thrown out the word “treason” regarding charges of Team Trump collusion with the Russians, whom he and others claim is trying to subvert our democracy. It is clear that it was not the Russians, but Team Obama that was and still is trying to subvert our democracy. The breathtaking subversion and criminal activity that is involved here is only now becoming apparent

Forget Watergate, Democrats. Compared to your own criminal enterprise, Watergate was indeed a third-rate burglary. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, you have a lot of work to do and a lot of people to prosecute for their crimes against the government and people of the United States.

Powerline has insight into two other fronts: Paul Mirengoff on why Europe balks at Russia sanctions; Trump won’t veto them and John Hinderaker on why The Obamacare Drama Is Not Over. The only simple thing about issues these days is the block opposition of the Democrats and that solidarity is saying the Left is not concerned about the issues but rather about rejecting elections.

The fact is that the Democrats need Republicans to prop up their failing, Rube Goldberg-like health care scheme. Congressional Republicans tried to oblige them, but Democrats preferred the presumed political gain that would result from the GOP’s failure. Now, the Democrats need the Trump administration to bail out their pet project. I find it hard to see any reason why the administration should oblige them.

Ed Krayewski: Get a Speeding Ticket, Pay the DA for Better Treatment – “Louisiana’s pre-trial diversion programs helps drivers avoid higher insurance premiums—and enriches DAs’ offices.”

The hustle reveals what a central role revenue-raising plays in policing.

The fact that some moving violations can be downgraded so easily to non-moving violations suggests that they were not moving violations in the first place—that they were always primarily revenue-raising endeavors.

David Middleton: Fake News: Trump official, Scaramucci, says Earth is only 5,500 yrs old. – “Anatomy of a fake news story.”

Here we have a young geologist, writing for Forbes, with a Young Earth Creationist obsession, fabricating a story. This errant misquote is now being repeated as fact-based news on multiple Internet outlets… the anatomy of a fake news story.

More FUD Mongering by John Bowden: Hackers break into voting machines in 90 minutes at competition – “Tech minds at the annual DEF CON in Las Vegas were given physical voting machines and remote access, with the instructions of gaining access to the software.” When you give someone access, then, sure, there’s a way to break into them. The story is misdirection in order to create a headline and FUD mongering propaganda. That is also a form of Fake News. The real question is about voters who have access but aren’t qualified to vote and about ballot management practice that allows improper access to the voting process and product and about auditing and verification procedures.

Patricia McCarthy: Trump Is Different, and Different Scares People – it is about understanding what is behind the behavior.
