    Joe Arpaio Is OK with Deputies Drinking on Duty (Audio)

    This is a story about the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) interview with the Shurf about the “Seattle Caper”.

    Frankly, I don’t care if Mackiewicz had a drink or two while he was in Seattle smoozing around with Montgomery. What interests me is that apparently, the whistle-blowers about the excessive overtime were ‘one ex-girlfriend and a current girlfriend’ who had access to his timesheets; and that Mack flew in women from out-of-state while he was there (it is not stated if he charged the expenses to the Department).

    That really sounds like a violation of the Mann Act to me.

    Lemon sort of glosses over that angle, maybe to put it out there without exposing himself to legal challenge?

    Reality Check October 24, 2016 at 8:47 am #

    I recall in one of the internal emails that were released a description Dennis Montgomery on a trip to Washington, D. C. It may have been when they met with Judge Royce Lamberth. Montgomery didn’t want to go and claimed he was on his death bed. When he got there they went out to dinner and Montgomery knocked down 4 or 5 cocktails like they were nothing. Pretty good for a guy on death’s door.

    Yeah, if one good thing comes from Trump running, its that. I’m holding out hope, that if he somehow DOES get elected, the Democrats will hold both sides of Congress, limiting what damage he’ll be able to do.

    I don’t know about insufferable, but my sister inexplicably is voting for Trump. The good news is that she lives in New York so it doesn’t matter how she votes.

    The only candidate to be elected in the last 100 years without carrying his home state was Nixon in 1968, but that was an anomaly because no one really considered New York to be his home state. He lived there for only a few years and never held an elected office in New York.

    We don’t talk about things like that around my family. We all have our opinions but know how volatile some topics can be so we avoid them for the sake of peace and harmony.

    My mother was considering a vote for Trump. She doesn’t really like Donald Trump but she really hates Clinton. Eventually though, she settled on a write-in vote for a candidate from an obscure 3rd Party called “The American Solidarity Party’. It seems to make pro-life and anti-Capital punishment big parts of its platform, and those are values that are very important to my mother.

    Most of my relatives live in solid blue states, though one sister lives in the solid red state of Alabama. One sister, her husband, and just now of voting age daughter all live in Pennsylvania, but I’m pretty sure none of them would be Trump voters. I have several cousins who live in Arizona who I lost contact with decades ago. They’re pretty conservative, but they’re also biracial (my white uncle married a black woman way back in the 80s), so who knows which way they’ll go.

    RE: Mondale (Doc closed comments so I’m responding here)

    Looks similar. But, not quite. Another one of Washington’s body doubles.

    Pablo (Obit. Oct. 2, 1990) said they killed him and I trust Pablo’s words over Washington’s. Sad but, true. I do have an old black and white negative that I believe is Mondale taken just before his assassination. Unfortuneately, Walmart and the local drug store franchises no longer process these.

    And, the last time I handed over evidence to law enforcement (Osceola County), I never saw it again and there was no forward movement. I can’t help but wonder if that was the “Dennis Montgomery” evidence since Mike Zullo Moore and Mike Volin certainly don’t want a one of one chit chat with me.

    roadburner: and scary as it may be, i’m starting to think that trump might actually have a good chance at taking the white house.

    Well, here’s some encouraging news for you: William and Mary College polled some early voters in Florida, and found Clinton significantly outperforming the media polls.

    It’s a small sample (only 311), but they found 28% of registered Republicans crossing over to Clinton. More typical single-digit levels in the down-ballot races, though: Rubio is still a solid favorite.

    My guess is that this largely comes from the large population of Cuban refugees and their children, who tend to be more conservative Republicans. So it probably won’t happen elsewhere.

    But the pundits say Florida is an absolute “must win” for Trump, that’s a positive sign for anti-Trump folks.

    However, a number of high-ranking GOP have already said they’re ready to start a constitutional crisis/impeachment from Day 1, so if the Dems don’t capture the Senate, winning the WHO may be a hollow victory.

    Plus, Trump’s decision to accept or reject the ballot box results and stir up with mob of lunatics weighs like a heavy shadow over it all.

    This has easily been the worst US election ever, and the troubles may not be over yet.

    Well there are a lot of scenarios, but Trump winning the presidency is easily the worst. All that other stuff I could deal with.

    If they try to impeach, or succeed, I really don’t care. Tim Kaine would make a fine president too.

    If the Democrats don’t capture the Senate, it’ll suck, but it’ll be tolerable.

    And I still don’t think Trump refusing to concede will actually matter anyway. A lot of his fervent supporters are all bark and no bite.

    I have a friend who lives in Florida and hates Hillary, so he wrote in Bernie (a wasted vote which won’t be counted because Bernie didn’t file as a write-in candidate, which is required in Florida). He claims that he doesn’t care if Trump wins because he’ll be a one-term president and how much damage can he do in one term?

    Trump has been raising the bar for what’s considered “beyond the pale” since before he started running for office. Every time he commits some new outrage, the temperature of the metaphorical water goes up a bit. Eventually, nothing is shocking enough to dissuade his remaining followers.

    But if that were the case, Trump’s numbers wouldn’t be affected when a new scandal broke. The Access Hollywood tape wouldn’t have done much. Now it’s like, the Access Hollywood tape, the dismal debate performances, the feud with the Khans, and everything before it, never happened.

    Trump may be getting bonus points for not being part of “the establishment”. People who aren’t doing great in their lives, or perceive the state of the nation to be bad, tie those negative views to Hillary Clinton. She is as establishment as they get. Trump is completely un-establishment, and I guess they’re rolling the dice that he can improve what they think is wrong, even if they don’t like him personally.

    Comedian John Caparulo encapsulates some of this in the “Caplets” comedy videos he uploaded on his Youtube channel for September and August. He doesn’t usually do political humor but these videos are experiments in political humor.

    There are also, of course, disgruntled Millenial Bernie Sanders voters. Some of who are voting for Gary Johnson.. which is pretty ridiculous. Your preferred candidate isn’t on the ballot so you vote for a guy who holds the complete opposite views? Just to stick it to the 2 mahor parties?

    Hi you gorgeous deplorables–I have missed you so much! I haven’t been able to even read anything because they would immediately attack the page and load whatever it is they do to me.

    was thinking that they may start seeing the tea leaves that there won’t be anyone to pay them to harass anymore. We have Law & Order coming👍🏼

    This election season I have had to erase my phone 4 times & the last 2 times w/o restoring. I noticed attacks started declining the past week so tried BR tonight & wanted so much to tell you it feels good to be home! Those of you that love the Lord will know He is with us and this dark cloud is going to be ripped open. I believe the games will commence in a few hours.

    One thing–the FBI woke up a FOIA twitter site that was dormant for over a year in past few days. They will send records on someone/something if they get 3 requests. They are basically telling us to ask & they’ll deliver by posting it on twitter site. While most are thinking HRC stuff–I wondered if we could request Barry Soetoro info.
