Re: The Post and Email

My view is, was, and remains that there was never a good faith basis for anyone to have "questions" regarding Obama's birthplace. This is complete and utter unscientific bullshit. There was a good faith basis (and still is) for anyone who isn't an expert of Constitutional law (or hasn't gotten an a...

This kind of nonsense is why I've never been a huge fan of anonymity - even when it's clearly necessary. I've always been a fan on non-anonymous anonymity. I'll stand by anything I've said as Slarti as if I said it under my meatspace name (which is not a secret), but I'd rather that my words were g...

Funnily enough, IIRC, when his posts were copied/pasted here from the P&E, he was great. Now that he's posting here, not so much. Because the excessive language is perceived as mocking.

Re: The Post and Email

Still, neither Foggy's lawyer friend nor Zeke has quite Mr. Brolin's panache when it comes to turning a phrase. I have it on good authority that there was a second post in Mr. Brolin's drive-by that was even moreso which Ms. Rondeau apparently felt her readers needed to be protected from.

Re: The Post and Email

It was true propaganda. Rondeau is allergic to the truth when it comes to President Obama. She probably blames him for her becoming a pauper-victim. I'm sure when Trump tries to cut her welfare payments she'll blame that on Obama, too. She's basically deranged. PS: I am also not Brolin. We are all ...

Re: CREW et al v. Trump; USDC SDNY; Re Emoluments Clause (1)

Tillman's attorney's submission reminds me of bad science except this is bad history where a court is being asked to referee that history. We can all thank the fraud Antonin Scalia for that. Originalism is nothing more than a highly manipulable imposition of one's idea of history on others through ...

Character does not matter when no-one points out that the private server was not illegal when it was active. Agreed.
