Oh Happy Day

“A U.S. judge ordered the Justice and State departments Thursday to reopen an inquiry into whether Hillary Clinton used a private email server while secretary of state to deliberately evade public records laws, and to answer whether the agencies acted in bad faith by not telling a court for months that they had asked in mid-2014 for missing emails to be returned.”

Now, will it (or they) go anywhere meaningful? Wait and see.

UPDATE:  Just a coincidence? IRS prosecutors are ready to pounce on the Clinton Foundation for back taxes. Slick Willie’s been playing fast and loose with the “charity.” This may be a bone the elite throw to us pleebs, letting the mrs skate on everything else. As Glenn Reynolds has said: “We have the worst political class ever, but the Clintons are the worst of the worst.”

CYA at (F)amous (B)ut (I)ncomptent

As a retired FBI agent/friend once told me, the feds couldn’t find their asses with both hands. But they can sure cover their asses, eh FBI?

In a stunning display, a man who is a recognized government watchdog and had given Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz documents showing federal officials ignored the relationship among Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, had his home raided by the FBI, despite the fact that his status was protected by law.”

What law? Fart, Barf & Itch don’t follow no steenking law.

“It involved some 16 agents making a house call on whistleblower Dennis Nathan Cain. The problem here seems to be that Cain is blowing the whistle on federal law enforcement (or the nonfeasance thereof) in matters pertaining to the Clinton crime family. As if that weren’t enough, Robert Mueller’s past service as FBI Director is implicated as well.”

Famous But Incompetent has a lot of asses to find and cover this time. They’ll probably miss a few. But, as always, there’ll be lots of innocents for them to intimidate.

California Dims steal election–legally

“California Democrats ‘stole’ the midterm election using a new method that is illegal elsewhere but completely legal in the Golden State: a practice called ‘ballot harvesting,’ which allows third parties to submit mail-in ballots for voters.”

Used to be you had to be dead, or an illegal, to vote Dim in Mexifornia. Now you just need to not show up.

UPDATE:

Felonia’s flop tour

Ol’ Lock-Her-Up can’t fill a 19,000 seat arena. Can’t come close. Then she fell into a coughing fit on the opening of her Trump trashing tour to raise some coin for her and Slick Willie to squander.

Romance of the Rails

This good book by Randal O’Toole lays out the nationwide disaster that is urban rail transit and light rail: deferring maintenance to the tune of billions of dollars while constantly spending more billions for expansion. Never mind delays, accidents, deaths and low ridership. The pols just keep on building.

Not just in Austin, but in Boston, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Atlanta & etc. O’Toole doesn’t examine Austin but Jim Skaggs, former Tracor CEO, sure does:

“Austin and Cap Metro transit [rail] plans being developed by ‘Project Connect’ are based on reducing current car lanes on major roadways to provide dedicated transit [rail] lanes. This ill-conceived plan would result [in] some of the most devastating negative impacts, in history, on Austin citizens’ quality-of-life and living costs.”

Because people refuse to give up their cars and, so far, government can’t make us.

Go back just two years and read Forbes contributing writer Scott Beyer on why Austin is “perhaps America’s leading rail transit failure.” A monument to government waste.

Austin and Capitol Metro go on building more while light rail and transit rail are collapsing all over the country.

You have to wonder why. Are the pols just stupid? Could be. Or corrupt? Could also be and probably is. New construction is always good for covering up the graft and bribes which are a staple of political life.

O’Toole: “Buses can not only move more people than light rail, they can do it faster.” Ah, but there’s no romance in buses, even with electric connections and free wifi at your seat. Nor near as much graft.

Mr. Suspenders calls for foreign election monitors

“When Republicans suggest Democrats are up to no good, it is universally decried as a paranoid, craven or ‘openly authoritarian’ attempt to delegitimize an election. When Democrats suggest an election was stolen, it’s a grave warning of a crisis that should require “international election monitors,” in the words of Dan Rather.”

Smokescreen

As they did with Justice Kavanaugh, the Dims are undoubtedly preparing a host of phonies to link the president with Putin, et al. Mad Maxine will be one leader, if not the principle one, in the circus. Aided and abetted by the Clown News Network and MSNBS.

Lots of sound and fury—and continual hints of impending impeachment—signifying nothing. All to provide a smokescreen to cover up a real something the GOPe was too slow to uncover: the crimes of the Deep State, spying on the Trump presidential campaign and whatever else Mule-face and his cronies Comey, McCabe and Strzok were up to during Bronco Bama’s reign.
