Strike While the Iron Is Hot

Jefferson City

My mind is mashing up this story and the news from yesterday about sports gambling.

I now think that this only makes the matter of tossing Eric Greitens out of the Mansion bag and baggage even more imperative.  Add to that, if Mike Parson gets to appoint the next Lieutenant Governor when he becomes Governor, he’ll have one name in mind:  Josh Hawley.

Because both Greitens, as chief executive of state government, and Hawley, as chief prosecutor for state government, have openly promised to drain the Jefferson City swamp.  But who wants that, when casinos and big time sports leagues are about to make it rain on most state capitals?  All that money would pay for a lot of parties.  Way bigger and better than when I was in that line of work.

Which means all that needs to be done is to get Greitens out of town and Hawley in a job where he can’t prosecute anyone, and Parson would probably appoint a party establishmentarian similar to himself as AG, and nobody in that town will need to worry about any ole big bad monsters and their felony corruption indictments.

Claire’s Sniffing Around

14 02 2018

Washington, D.C.;  Jefferson City;  Kirkwood

Claire calls out the pharma lobby for the opiate crisis.

She is getting this close to calling out the Sassoon family.  May we expect her next report to be such where those who keyboard in the words will have to use Shift+9 and Shift+0 on occasion?

While we in the Alt-Right are certainly not hesitant to do that, and especially not hesitant because of the parenthetical angle, we know that we can’t pawn all the blame off on the pharmas and their lobbying arms. We also realize that societal systemic and structural hatred towards working class whites is a yuge driver.





Revenge of the Swamp

Washington, D.C.

I can’t believe I’m quoting Ben Shapiro, but:

All that happened here is that the insurance lobby, which is pretty friendly with the red team, went to work and made sure that the replacement legislation kept most of the ObamaDontCare elements that are insurance industry friendly.  This caused enough Senate Republican defections, and there only needed to be three, to kill the whole thing.





Not Everyone, Dear

Blago’s 20-year old daughter takes it to the ex-hopeychanger on Faceberg.

She said that “Everyone seems to be mourning your exit from office.”

Not everyone, dear.

And the reason why he didn’t spring your father from the can early is because his pay-for-play corruption upended and embarrassed Obama in the transition period between his first election and his inauguration.  More people than otherwise were or would have were starting to side eye Obama because of what someone else out of the Chicago stable did.

In that which they state what everyone knows.

Their tack is a little bit different — They’re using it to lobby for more state legislative-based tort reform.

Don’t be so sure that Eric Greitens would sign it.  If he gets the notion that outside monied interests are working their magic in what is now a dying line of work in Jefferson City, if such a bill gets to his desk, he just might veto it.

If I was advising these forces, I’d have them instead push for a city-county merger but do it in such a way that their fingerprints stay off the gun.  It’s like I said, we’ll know if the merger possibility gets serious or is perceived to be serious when the other side of this coin, the trial lawyer lobby, starts in in the stuck pig squealing.  The merger would end the 22nd circuit, and the trial lawyer lobby wants it to remain for the same reason why the insurance lobby is going to pressure state government to crack down on it.

He didn’t want to do it.

Because doing it himself would have come off as political.

It’s the next best thing to doing it himself without actually doing it himself. And you know the other countries will go along, because they’re mad that they bribed the Crime Family Foundation to influence the future President Rodham, and as it turns out, there will be no President Rodham. You think they have some sort of financial incentive to whack back out of revenge?

All of the finished product, none of the mud on his hands.

Beautifully played, orange-crowned god-emperor.

Remember, this is someone whose $10 billion personal fortune is based on the most maddening labyrinth around, Manhattan real estate.

“No prosecution of Hillary Clinton”

Be honest with yourself.  Did you actually think there would be a criminal prosecution?  Yes, even you there in the back — If you dig deep down, even you know it was never going to happen.

I’ve read on Gab the theory that Trump still intends to, but he has to softpedal in order not to give Obama the idea to pardon her before he leaves.  The problem is that I don’t think Trump ever needed to say anything about prosecuting her or not in order to give Obama that idea.

No, what’s going on here is that prosecuting former Presidents is informally too much.

Here’s what I think very well could happen:

Some time after January 20, Attorney General Jeff Sessions (a phrase I first used in this blog just after last Christmas) will file a Federal civil lawsuit against Bill and Hillary Clinton and maybe also Chelsea over some such this that or the third or the other relating to something they did.  Trump and Sessions will hold that lawsuit as a Damoclean sword over their heads until they sign some sort of formal legal document stating everything naughty they ever did starting from when they were in the third grade.  Then force them to hand over the keys to the Crime Family Foundation, forfeit all assets therein and most of everything else they won, and make them sign a consent decree heavily restricting the money making activities beyond Bill’s public service pensions (Presidency, Arkansas Governor if applicable), Hillary’s public service pensions (U.S. Senate, Secretary of State if applicable), and then they’ll disappear forever and live out the rest of their years in obscurity.

Basically what Trump/Sessions would be doing in that case, if they do that, is putting an asterisk next to the Clintons’ names in the history books.
