The Daily Tape-drop

This is some crafty editing of BREAKING News screen grabs from MSNBC from the Morning Joe with sprinklings from various MSNBC news shows during the day.  Set over some great music playlist.

Not to toot her horn, but it’s done by Dizzy Denizen.  She’s an author and screenwriter.  What she’s known for is what happens long before the editing happens.  This is a hobby she learned to impress her sister, who is a film editor.  Skills like this run in the family, because she picked this one up in short time.

Thanks, Diz.

Few people know what’s actually going on. The rest of us are unhappy spectators.
I suppose we could wean ourselves off the news, but how would we know just how crazy the next event would be, and — would it affect us all?

Gag This, Son

Well, it looks like poor goombah Mikey Cohen’s attempt to gag his tormentor from going on the teevee and making him look dumb. I was wondering if a judge duct taped Avenatti up and put him to sleep with the fishes.

Then, Lawrence O’Donnell came on while I was eating dinner.

Yeah, it was as funny to the poor judge as it was to me.

Mikey, if you don’t want to be prosecuted on RICO action, ya might want to not be acting like a wannabe mobster who never got made.

Special Counsel?

Law Wars WPPublished in Magnana Mouse

Good news.

I think.

America got itself a “special counsel.”  Trump can be investigated and prosecuted proper (New York Times).  But, some things are still a worth peeking around the corners.  In Loopholesville, you never know what kind of surprises hide in the shadows.

A special counsel has jurisdiction over what it can do that is determined by the Attorney General.  In our case, that’s the recused Jeff Sessions.   So, the responsibility rests with the new Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein.  He chose the Attorney to hire as the Special Counsel, and he now steers the ship.

Still, it is worth investigating for yourself the intricate relationships that the rules weave around the special counsel.   For instance, to what extent is Trump still an invisible hand nudging an invisible hand in Sessions, who it nudging the invisible hand of Rosenstein on as it nudges Robert Mueller on?

The bottom line is that Rosenstein is still in charge, able to quash “any investigative or prosecutorial step” if the Attorney General deems “the action is so inappropriate or unwarranted under established Departmental practices that it should not be pursued.”  ~Code of Federal Regulations 600.7 Conduct and Accountability (Cornell Law)

That said, Robert Mueller used to run the FBI, and after what Trump did to Comey, I don’t see him being guided by Trump’s multi-dimensional invisible hand.  Bottom line is that you’ll keep doing your rockin’ due diligence and keeping up with it.  I’ll be writing on it in here and Magnana Mouse will be publishing it too.  I know, because I’ve been playing editor for them.

Wherever you get it, GET IT.  This bizniz is way too important to trip over while watching cat videos.

What’s That Smell?

FBI Comey I Have Sads WP

I can’t imagine anyone working in law enforcement turning down what has got to be the  pinnacle of any of their life’s work.

It’s like: “what would Donald have to do for to his fat ass to make me refuse to kick him square in it?”

Oh yeah, crap his pants. Again. Trump did the equivalent of crapping the FBI’s pants. It’s exactly like that.

Following advice, potential FBI chiefs steer clear of job under Trump
