    So, Texas Governor Rick Perry repeatedly offered Rosemary Lehmberg another job in exchange for dropping the multiple corruption investigations she was working against his administration. Two other District Attorneys had also been convicted of DWI during his administration and had not been asked to resign, one even receiving a major promotion in the Perry administration after his second conviction.

    The wheels of Perry’s little machine are falling off and it is going to end up in the weeds on the cinder blocks of history, like so many others before. Malfeasance seems to be a normal way for the Texas (and national) GOP to do business. It makes me wonder what someone has on Rick Perry.
    Other major felonies, probably.

    Guys like that never get to run for or hold office without someone holding a sword over their heads. George Bush is proof of that. The fact that he had his pilot’s license permanently revoked while still being obligated to his Texas National Guard enlistment is still a major question. His regular jaunts to Jamaica in his TNG fighter jet are still unexplained.

    Meanwhile James Foley is executed and Obummer and gang act like it’s a criminal investigation. These are barbaric freaks… They act like DUMMOCRETINS, where they shut up the opposition. Obummer’s gang call this a homicide investigation. IT WAS AN EXECUTION by DULL KNIFE! How will Holder investigate this? He’s going to send Justice Department investigators to ISIS land? How will they gather evidence? Who will be talking to his investigators. Will Obummer release more GITMO prisoners for the exchange of information? If Obummer does how will Obummer know the information is correct?

    Sheesh, you DUMMOCRETINS surely act strange when stuff like this happens!

    Imagine Foley’s family watching this? Thanks to Obummer not wanting to bomb Iraq in August 2013 when Iraq saw this cancer happening, we see the outcome of Obummer being a politician vs. being a leader! Remember in 2011 Obummer claimed Iraq was a great place.

    @26 That doesn’t tell us who held a gun to Perry’s head and forced him to defund the Public INTEGRITY Unit (which happens to be investigating Perry’s cronies for allegedly funneling millions of state tax dollars into Texas GOP coffers), nor does it explain why Perry defunded a STATE AGENCY to force the resignation of a COUNTY OFFICIAL. Perry’s office said,

    “Despite the otherwise good work (of) the Public Integrity Unit’s employees, I cannot in good conscience support continued state funding for an office with statewide jurisdiction at a time when the person charged with ultimate responsibility of that unit has lost the public’s confidence.”

    My question is, How many other agencies with statewide jurisdiction has Perry defunded because the public has lost confidence in the people who run them, with particular reference to Perry’s own appointees/cronies? None, I’ll bet.

    Oh, and by the way, if she isn’t fit to be a D.A. why are they offering her a job in the D.A.’s office?

    The answer, of course, is this isn’t about Lehmberg’s conduct at all. It’s about who controls the Public Integrity Unit, and specifically, whether the investigation into GOP corruption continues or gets shut down. It’s a twofer for Perry: Get rid of a Democratic elected official and get the corruption investigators off his back.

    It may take a long time to piece together exactly what happened in the confrontation between Darrell Wilson and Michael Brown, and perhaps people will never agree about what happened. But it’s beginning to appear that witness accounts of a struggle between Wilson and Brown at the patrol car, and Wilson shooting at Brown as he ran away, may BOTH be correct. Here’s an especially interesting possible piece of the puzzle:

    “Officer Wilson’s firearm went off inside the car, Mr. Brown ran away, the officer got out of his car and began firing toward Mr. Brown, and then Mr. Brown stopped, turned around and faced the officer.”

    From this (if it’s true), it appears that Wilson shot at and missed Brown when he tried to run away, and Brown was gunned down after stopping (in response to a command by Wilson) and turning to face Wilson. Which might indicate Wilson fired the fatal shots when Brown was trying to surrender. We don’t know yet.

    What’s clear is this shooting doesn’t feel right to a lot of people.

  21. 39

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Here’s a fascinating item. It seems one of the three black cops employed in Ferguson’s 53-man police department has a history of assaulting kids:

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Years ago, St. Louis County was balkanized into dozens of tiny municipalities which fragmented and gerrymandered the black population into white-run neighborhoods. Ferguson is a good example; its population is 70% black, but its city government and police department are nearly all-white. That’s a legacy of the segregation era, and is typical of the entire county.

    According to this article, St. Louis County has at least 55 different municipal police departments. How many does our own King County have? I can think of two (I’m not counting airport and port police as a municipal department) — SPD and King County Sheriff, which provides contracted police services to several Seattle suburbs.

    As the article suggests, when you have dozens of small police departments in a single county, it’s easy to shunt violent, abusive, misbehaving, or incompetent cops to another jurisdiction. They get hired, despite poor performance, because it saves the new employer training expenses, and those little jurisdictions tend to be funding-poor. It works a lot like the teacher shuffle in some school districts.

    This system practically guarantees that bad cops will continue to be cops. Moreover, as the larger and better-heeled departments purge them, they tend to concentrate in the smaller and poorer departments, which is where the minorities are. It’s a deeply embedded flaw in St. Louis County’s municipal structure, but there’s a way to cure it, even if you can’t repair the underlying governance issues. And that’s for the authorities responsible for licensing Missouri’s cops to yank the licenses of bad cops so they can’t be cops.

  22. 40

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Conservatives are now in a lather because part of the fallout from the Michael Brown shooting is that black residents of Ferguson are registering to vote. Missouri GOP Executive Director Matt Wills, outraged and disgusted by the prospect of more Ferguson blacks voting (black turnout presently is only 12% there), said, “If that isn’t fanning the political flames, I don’t know what is.”


    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Now we’re seeing their true colors.

    This is why we need government regulation:

    “A second former co-owner of the California slaughterhouse involved in a recall of nearly nine million pounds of meat was charged with knowingly processing and distributing meat from cancerous cows, court documents released this week say. … He is charged with distributing ‘adulterated, misbranded, and uninspected’ meat, according to the documents.”

    These guys also allegedly “directed employees to carve ‘USDA Condemned’ stamps out of certain cow carcasses and to process them for sale and distribution” and sent “false invoices to farmers, telling them that their cattle had died or been condemned and charging them ‘handling fees’ for disposal of the carcasses,” according to prosecutors.

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Meanwhile, Republican legislators across the country are passing laws that make it a felony for activists to work undercover on farms to document animal abuse, or to video animals being abused. Why would anyone sane person vote for Republicans?

  26. 44

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    “A member of Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) was arrested at the Jordan Valley Big Loop Rodeo in Oregon for videotaping ‘horse tripping,’ an event that involves roping horses by the neck and legs while they’re running and forcing them to violently fall face-first to the ground.”

    From Roger NoBalls IDIOT Wabbit link…

    In a press release, the police admit as much: “The video footage was eventually provided to law enforcement by representatives of Compassion Over Killing approximately 2 months after Radig’s employment ended with Quanah Cattle Company… Radig’s failure to report the alleged abuse of the animals in a timely manner adheres to the definition of acting with negligence and substantiates the charge Animal Cruelty.” Radig is also accused of participating in the abuse.

    “Where do you start with shit like this?”

    You start by convincing people that education is the work of the devil, and jingoism is patriotic. Then you take that generation of ignorance and tribalism into the next one and foster a nakedly deliberate propaganda campaign about how the Rich are better than anyone else, and the only measure of a person’s worth is how much money they can take from other people and hoard.

    Then you present the idea that Rich people are rich because they worked hard, and anyone who also works hard can be rich too if they just worked as hard as the Rich people do.

    Then you take all the shit that made the Rich as rich as they are away from the people who actually work and convince them it it is some sinister outside element that is causing their socioeconomic distress. Back in the 1930s, it was Jews and Communists. Now, it’s Liberals, Mexicans and “Da Colored Folks” that are causing all their problems, and pointedly propagandize that the Rich are better than everyone who isn’t rich, because they are better educated, smarter, have better breeding and they don’t act out with violence when they are wronged.

    There were plenty of Jews amongst the Nazis during the 1920’s and 30’s just as now there are plenty of “non-traditional” citizens involved in the Tea Party. One of the most effective methods the Nazis used to discredit dissidents was to convince those dissident’s own neighbors and family members that they were subversive, and therefore enemies. That wasn’t Liberals doing any of that, it was all Conservatives .

    Alan Keys, D’nesh D’souza, SpittlePuddles etc. are solid proof that those methods work. Praising and bootlicking the Police and the StormFronters and the Ku Klux Klan while condemning the property damage and misbehavior of the people who are just sick and fuckin TIRED of being treated like dogshit all the time, by the very authorities who are tasked with preventing the sort of Crimes they are subjected to every single day.

    Regarding the Fergeson situation, I’ve noticed in all the various Forums I’ve paid attention to, the Conservatives are more outraged at the property damage and the embarrassment it is causing in the international press, than they are about a dead, unarmed and surrendering 18-year-old who lost his life at the hands of a Government official. That same Government that they blame for “letting the Animals run wild in the streets”.

    Cubs Cut Workers’ Hours To Avoid O-Care Mandate, Then Disaster Struck

    By DYLAN SCOTT Published AUGUST 22, 2014, 12:16 PM EDT

    Earlier this week, the Chicago Cubs grounds crew experienced a disaster. As rain poured onto Wrigley Field, they were unable to cover the playing surface with a tarp in time. They were booed. The game was called. Because of the mismanagement, their opponents, the San Francisco Giants, protested the game after it had been called as a win for the Cubs. They succeeded. It was the first successful protest in Major League Baseball in 28 years, according to Deadspin.

    But the whole bizarre episode was cast in a new light Thursday when the Chicago Sun-Times reported that the Cubs had slashed worker hours to keep them under 30 hours a week to avoid paying health benefits under Obamacare.

    @54 And if you’re wondering how he got hired by one of Nevada’s most prestigious law firms in the first place, and gets Republican luminaries to take him seriously as a candidate despite a total lack of experience (and brains), it helps to be the grandson of, and share a last name with, Nevada’s most famous politician.

    So much for the concept of merit. What the one percent do to us is bad enough, but what their imbecile progeny will do to us is far worse. People like Adam Laxalt are an argument for a 100% confiscatory estate tax, the theory behind this being that if the rich and powerful can’t be prevented from inflicting imbecile descendents on us, they at least should be prevented from enabling with wealth and power their imbecile descendents.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Speaking of what’s going on in the world, we have two big stories to discuss this morning.

    First, the weak do-nothing Obama administration spent last week ramping up rhetoric against ISIS, spent this week bombing ISIS, and today called the murder of journalist James Foley “a terrorist attack against the United States.” Sure sounds like the weak do-nothing Obama administration is priming the American public for a war to take out ISIS.

    Second, a Chinese interceptor provocatively buzzed a U.S. recon plane in international airspace two days ago, coming within 30 feet and barrel-rolling to display its fangs, and this is no accident; a similar stunt resulted in a collision that killed a Chinese pilot and damaged an American plane in 2001.

    But this is about much more than the Chinese fucking with American planes off their coast keeping an eye on them. Obama has been clear about shifting the U.S. strategic focus and concentration of military forces from Europe to the Far East, and most strategic analysts agree the South China Sea is well on the way toward becoming the 21st century’s prime geopolitical hotbed. (Forget the Middle East; the real action is in Asia.)

    China isn’t contemplating a war with the United States. What they want to do is control the South China Sea, through which passes the world’s busiest shipping lanes and most important trade routes, and under which lies significant and possibly vast natural resources, especially oil. Their huge but corrupt and inefficient land army amounts to squat, and will continue to amount to squat (it’s mainly for domestic control). The Chinese military modernization and buildup that matters is air force assets, naval assets, and missiles capable of threatening the U.S. Navy and specifically our aircraft carriers.

    The Chinese want to kick the U.S. Navy out of the South China Sea, and they prefer to do it without going to war, but they seem willing to exchange some shots to achieve that objective. They want hegemony in the South China Sea, with little or no U.S. interference, so they can take all the resources for themselves and bully their neighbors. To get it, they’re building fifth-generation fighters as good as our best jets, an underground sub base on Hainan Island, and 1,000 mile-range missiles (mobile, truck mounted) specifically designed to take out U.S. carriers for which we don’t have an effective countermeasure.

    This has many ramifications, including a new cold war and arms race, rearmament and nuclearization of Japan, and turning Vietnam into the next shithole third world country to seek and maybe acquire nuclear weapons.

    (The Vietnamese are eager to become a U.S. ally in order to get under our umbrella of protection. They don’t care about what we did to their country 50 years ago, partly because 90% of Vietnamese alive today weren’t living then and don’t remember it, but mainly because they’re worried about Chinese aggression.)

    It’s hard to tell whether China’s push into the South China Sea will bring about armed conflict with the U.S., but it’s hard to see how it won’t bring about growing tensions and increasing diplomatic conflict with the U.S. Our allies in the region, which nominally include Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, and Australia, are looking for us to stand firm against China’s new assertiveness. This is basically a turf battle, but a very important one to world peace and stability, not to mention our strategic interests.

    This week’s aerial hijinks wasn’t exactly “shot fired,” but came close. U.S. surveillance planes have been flying the same routes off China’s coasts for years. The Chinese have never liked it, but we have a right to do it, because our planes are in international airspace where everyone has a recognized right to fly, just as ships of all flags have a right to ply the high seas, including the South China Sea. This wasn’t some cowboy pilot playing rodeo; they get shot for that in China. The pilot was carrying out orders that came from the highest levels of China’s military establishment, if not from its political establishment. It’s the last step of escalation below firing shots.

    There will be much more of this in coming years, involving not just interceptor jets, but also submarines and gunboats, and perhaps missile exercises overflying not only Japan but also U.S. Navy fleets. They will be testing their weapons and capabilities, and goading and threatening us, hoping we back off rather than risk a war. And all of this will be red meat for conservative warmongers here at home; future Democratic candidates will find it harder to talk about cutting defense spending or seeking diplomatic solutions to the world’s tensions when faced with an increasingly pushy China and being painted as “surrender monkeys” in domestic political debate.

    Where did China, one of the world’s poorer nations, get the money to build supersonic stealth fighters, submarines and aircraft carriers, and missiles that fly off a truck-mounted launcher, scream up into outer space, then drop straight down onto the decks of U.S. carriers, untouchable by our Navy’s ship defenses? From us. Thank you, Walmart shoppers. Thank you, borrow-and-spend Republicans. You gave China trillions of our money. They’re going to use it to give us and our allies a hard time in the eastern Pacific.

    Do any of you remember a short time ago, Obummer paraded the family of Bowe Bergdahl out in front of the cameras. Invited to the White House . . . the whole shibang minus the pomp and circumstance!!!! We saw the heartfelt hugs and were left with the picture of the preznit with his arms around each parent as they walked away. Yes, your preznit and his cronies got their moment and played it up. Yes, they were able to illegally negotiate the release of Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for 5 terrorists and several million dollars. Whoops . . . and there’s that little thing called breaking the law and it seems that our President did just so by not notifying Congress by rule before hand. Business as usual per the libtard press. . . they’ve all conveniently forgotten about the Constitution of the United States of America and how Obummer swore an oath to defend it. Since Obummer took office, it seems that the only Obummer actions have been to subvert it.

    For those of you libtards not paying attention (most of the HA DUMMOCRETIN bunch) to what is happening around us, a young man by the name of James Foley was beheaded a couple of days ago by ISIS and the video was posted for all the world to see. Did you watch it? It is pure evil . . . there is no other way to describe it. Puddy’s blood was boiling! Following the execution of James Foley, your preznit gave a short 5 minute speech. Oh yes, Obummer was stern and eloquent, but showed absolutely no leadership qualities. There was no call to action . . . It was the same old empty words that we hear from Obummer on a daily basis. But the best part was Obummer immediately walked off the podium without taking a single question from reporters and not 10 minutes later, was back on the golf course teeing off with Obummer’s pals. Not a single moment was spent consoling the parents. No invites to the White House . . . nothing . . . just golf as usual.

    Obummer, you are a pathetic excuse for a president. You’re amateur and out of your league, arrogant, fraudulent, an empty suit, and you are unfit to hold the office of the President of the United States of America. Never in the history of America has a man been so unqualified to be our president. Puddy is disappointed by not surprised!
