Blago-Lynch

Rod Blagojevich is in Federal prison for stating that he wanted to exchange the appointment of the Senate seat that Baraq Obama vacated upon being elected President for consideration.

How is that any different from HRC promising Loretta Lynch either that she would stay on as USAG or a SCOTUS appointment in exchange for an assurance of non-indictment?

Democratic republicanism instead of hereditary monarchy, because rule of law, not rule of men, they keep telling us.

We got democratic republicanism and rule of men anyway.  Stupid they.

Further proving my point is that this whole scandal is about the Clintons peddling the influence of a possible HRC presidency in exchange for swag bags from interested parties.  This is yet another bad consequence of the existence of elections.

The only bright spot is that Comey’s announcement of a no indict recommendation sounded more like listing the grounds for Trump’s Attorney General to issue an indictment.

Also, I don’t understand how HRC doesn’t get indicted yet Edward Snowden has standing felony charges against him.  Unless I do understand, which goes back to the point of this post.





I Wonder What Bill de Blasio Did to Piss Baraq Obama Off

Feds inching closer and closer to him.  That circle is getting tighter and tighter.

There’s also a cautionary tale that 2A activists will be interested in.

She avoided her fair share of the responsibility for the Flint water crisis, as most everyone was screaming Rick Snyder Rick Snyder Rick Snyder.  Largely I think as a diversion to keep the blame off her.  You get one guess why.

Anyway, she’s not letting a good crisis go to waste.





Census Shenanigans

30 10 2015

Washington, D.C.

This is big. Really big.

While Census doesn’t do the unemployment, we’ve always had the sneaking feeling that there has been some methodological funny business to help Obama.

What we do know here is that the American Community Survey is questionable, and as we can read, that helps determine how and where the Feds spend money on local governments.  The motive there is obvious:  The Obama White House wants to shovel more money to big cities.

More disturbingly than that, this calls the National Crime Victimization Survey into question.  That’s important, because the NCVS is how the DOJ compares the demographics of law enforcement arrests and accosts, and the crime that is actually happening on the ground per NCVS reports.  If there is a statistically significant disparity between LEA and NCVS, it means there must be some sort of law enforcement bias or some other problem.  Invariably, there never is.  But…if the Obama White House is fooling around with the NCVS, then it means they’re trying to goose it into showing a disparate result, because they’re looking to wage a jihad against cops.

There’s another thing to worry about.  While this didn’t mention or even allude to what I’m about to say, if Census is jiggering with ACS and NCVS, then I think it’s very possible that they’re also fooling around with the Voting Hot Report, their biannual report released the late spring or summer after either a Presidential election or a midterm election, to show the racial composition of who voted.  The May 2013 report is what deflated the ZOMG GREAT HISPANIC VOTER TIDAL WAVE LOL~!!!!!1 bubble, to show that Hispanics turnout wasn’t as high as first thought, and middle aged and elderly black women turnout was record-breaking, in 2012.  Likewise, after 2014, I was thinking that black and Hispanic turnout was down compared to the previous midterm cycle, 2010, because of how easily some of these supposedly razor-edge races went Republican; Steve Sailer thought that it was a result of enough white people lying to pre-election opinion pollsters about their real intention to vote Republican — As the VHR showed, Sailer was right, and I was wrong.  Too, what demonstrated the accuracy of the 2014 VHR is that the race based two-party exit polling data from CNN multiplied by the race demographics of 2014 voters per the VHR yields precisely the generic national percent of the vote for Republican Congressional candidates.

But, could it be possible that the Obama White House is forcing Census to mess around with the VHR methodology to fluff up the Hispanic percentage by a point or two or three?

Nothing good happens on Capitol Hill after midnight.





Article 1, Section 2, Clause 5

26 10 2015

Washington, D.C.

It starts with this phrase:

“The House of Representatives shall choose their speaker, the member from among them who is best able to raise money…”

Oh wait, it doesn’t?

Until now, and contra the conventional wisdom, I never bought that Boehner stepped down because of any conservative or TPM pressure, (prima facie evidence of that is that the same forces who are said forced him out are seemingly unable to resist the Paul Ryan juggernaut), the real reason is that he’s already 65 and wants to be able to run through the revolving door and cash in/cash out while he’s got some years left.  I now also think that he wants to play a lot more golf.  In about 15 months, Baraq Obama will be joining him.
