Michael Cohen’s Last Days of Freedom

Original Article

Posted By: abuela10, 4/30/2019 6:08:54 AM

It takes some time for Michael Cohen to work his way to a table at the grillroom of the Loews Regency Hotel, on Park Avenue. He’s been a regular at the hotel’s famous power breakfasts for more than two decades, and on several recent visits staff members reached out to him for handshakes and bro hugs. These days, the restaurant, with its twenty-seven-dollar pancakes and

Character of Cohen aside...

...the total grab of all of his records, and I mean all, and the violation of attorney/client privilege was a stunning blow to our Constitution. I heartily wish that the perpetrators are drawn and quartered...

...in a brine solution...

...with dull knives...

Cohen thought he was a big player and when the walls started closing in he tried to curry favor with the Mueller posse to get out of trouble. DC politics are brutal and he was always easily disposable.

When will writers like Toobin stop re-hashing
things that were found out not to be true by exhaustive investigations? Their hate for the President knows no bounds.

I for one wish Cohen well. The criminals are the democrat interrogators. Like Bush with Scooter Libby, I will never forgive Trump for not pardoning Cohen, Manafort and Stone and Flynn.

The title of this piece grabbed my attention. Then I saw the author´s name.

I refuse to waste my time and strain my patience by reading anything written by Jeffrey Toobin.

"leaving in his wake a grieving family, vanishing wealth,”

With $27 pancake “power breakfasts” at a posh NY hotel, it appears he has the wrong idea of what he should be doing with his last days as a free man.

Hugs from the staff = he’s been a big (insecure) tipper...

One last chance to stick it to President Trump and the only person interested was #NeverTrumper Toobin, a stooge himself. A pairing made in hell.

So the reader is supposed to believe that this rendition of what happened is the truth, coming out of Cohen’s mouth, massaged by Toobin? Be serious.

Cohen made so many mistakes. They had nothing on him on the Trump-related charge. He could have beaten the "novel" campaign finance claim. And if he really made a misstatement on a 18% percent loan to value HELOC, it wasn´t material. He should have fought it. His wife could have retained counsel and fought the tax charge. There was no intent there. And the biggest mistake of all was hiring Lanny Davis, who apparently sold him down the river.

The Truth about Trump´s Economy 19 replies

While Nancy Pelosi and other Democrat leaders dismiss the Trump economy as just benefiting the wealthy, my perspective is quite different. Since I have always resided in or near the inner cities of New York, it is quite obvious that these leaders have no idea what is happening in these neighborhoods. Help Wanted signs are posted in about every small business which no longer has to suffer the Obamacare mandates. Houses are undergoing renovations for the first time in years. The nearby housing project parking lots are filled with brand new vehicles. Restaurants now have packed dining rooms and waiting lists

Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and senior editor-at-large at Breitbart News, described the news media and political establishment’s disinterest in Hunter Biden’s business deals with foreign states “stunning.” Schweizer contrasted this disinterest with the treatment of Donald Trump Jr.’s “deal that actually never happened” in the Trump Organization’s contemplated construction of a skyscraper in Moscow, Russia. Schweizer joined Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight for an interview with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

The showdown that is brewing between Attorney General William Barr and the House Judiciary Committee poses enormous dangers for President Trump. It might not look that way at first blush. The feud, after all, is ostensibly over the terms under which Mr. Barr is to testify before the House about the report from the special prosecutor, Robert Mueller. It has yet to ripen into a formal impeachment proceeding. Mr. Barr might be able to win this fight.

Google knows a lot about you and, if you use Google Maps or other Google apps, it stores a copy of everywhere you go.

Baltimore mayor whereabouts unknown as FBI, IRS raid her office, home 14 replies

The days keep getting worse for Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh. On Thursday, federal agents raided her homes and offices, Maryland’s governor called for her resignation “for the good of the city” and speculation swirled about her whereabouts, as she presumably is still recovering from a bout of pneumonia. The escalating drama played out in Baltimore amid a backdrop of political isolation for the embattled first-term mayor, whose sales of her self-published “Healthy Holly” books to a medical system she oversaw and to firms seeking contracts in the city are being investigated by federal and state authorities.

Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed May 17, 2017. Twenty-two months later, on March 22, 2019, Mueller sent his report to the Justice Department. Some special counsel investigations have taken longer; it is the nature of such probes to drag on and on. But why did Mueller need nearly two years to determine whether the Trump campaign and Russia conspired or coordinated to fix the 2016 election?
Joe Biden’s First Mistake 15 replies

Vice President Biden is making a mistake, in our view, in trying to run for president on the idea that America is full of deplorables. He’s launched his campaign with a video featuring neo-Nazis marching at Charlottesville. He’s suggesting that President Trump — and his millions of followers — are racists and anti-Semites. That libel backfired on Secretary Clinton. What can Mr. Biden be thinking?

It is not now clear whether the Democrats’ pathological attachment to the fantasy that they have some chance of destroying the Trump presidency legally is based on continuing hysteria and frenzy, or addiction to continued harassment of the president even as the credibility of doing so plummets, or is an attempt to forestall the investigation and exposure of the malfeasance of the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign in producing the fraud of Trump-Russia collusion.

Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen walked back parts of his plea deal for financial crimes, while taking shots at fellow disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti, in a phone call secretly recorded by comedian Tom Arnold. “Look at what’s happening to Avenatti — it’s called karma boomerang,” Cohen also said in the call, which Arnold recorded March 25, without Cohen’s knowledge. “The guy lied about me every single day, right? And the world loved it.”

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden formally joined the crowded Democratic presidential contest on Thursday, betting that his working-class appeal and ties to Barack Obama’s presidency will help him overcome questions about his place in today’s increasingly liberal Democratic Party. He made his announcement in a video posted on Twitter, declaring, “We are in the battle for the soul of this nation.” “If we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation,” Biden said. “Who we are. And I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”

Special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation is over, but the aftereffects of the Trump-Russia affair live on. One such aftereffect is the reluctance of some important figures in the 2016 campaign to speak out, for fear of continued legal entanglements. Take J.D. Gordon, who served as the Trump campaign´s director of national security. Never accused of any wrongdoing, he played a central role in one of the most controversial and least understood episodes of the Trump-Russia matter: the approval of the 2016 GOP platform at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Ocasio-Cortez says growing cauliflower

Posted by NorthernDog 5/21/2019 11:36:22 AM
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.
Nevada passes National Popular Vote
bill in bid to upend Electoral College

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Some Form of Socialism

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters

The political zealotry of the federal judge who ordered ten years’ worth of Donald Trump’s financial records be turned over to the House Oversight and Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings has been revealed with a highly unusual provision of his order. (snip) The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge’s ruling consists of the appeals process, with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta’s order forbids this

After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies
Posted by MissMolly 5/22/2019 3:57:46 AM
Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
