Daily Check-In 06/19/2018

Tuesday June 19th.




$109 million for approximately 80 properties, all in cash deals and through LLC’s to hide the true owner.  Smells like Money Laundering

I’m not buying it yet.  Every word out of his mouth is a half-truth or outright lie.  His idea of “cooperating” is not actively getting in the way.  The same way one “helps” the paramedics at the scene of an accident by pulling over to let the ambulance pass.

Like I said yesterday in Daily Check-In 06/18/2018, Rudy’s past connections to FBI agents leaking to him will come out.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, interrupted Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on Tuesday as he questioned Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz in doing so accused House Republicans of conspiring to “fire” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein by the end of the week.

“Well, is it not appropriate to raise the question as to what is the germaneness of the gentleman’s line of questioning and whether or not we’re dealing with the report of Mr. Horowitz or whether we’re dealing with the Republicans’ attempt to undermine the Mueller investigation as well as fire Deputy Attoney General Rosenstein, which you are planning to do on Friday?” Lee shot back.

Lee appeared to be referring to Gowdy’s claim on Sunday that House Speaker Paul Ryan warned top Justice Department and FBI officials during a meeting they would face the House’s “full arsenal of constitutional weapons to gain compliance” on outstanding subpoenas if they didn’t do so by Friday.

While lawmakers cannot “fire” Rosenstein, they can find him in contempt of Congress or may introduce impeachment proceedings.



Cohen’s got a new lawyer, and taking bids on whether to flip or have the RNC pay his legal bills again.

Forcing a person to pay for a good or service against their will or betterment for fear of retribution or release of damaging information.  Sounds a lot like extortion.






Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) tweeted the answer after touring the facility in Brownsville, but he explained in more detail when we spoke by phone on Tuesday.

“There are separate facilities for younger children, there are separate facilities for girls,” Pocan says he was told. Because Brownsville and McAllen have been the focus of attention, only boys have been depicted. In a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, HHS officials pledged to releasephotos of detained girls and toddlers “within the next two days.”

In some cases, the same facility holds both boys and girls, though in separate areas. Our reporter noted in his article that “detainees had been sorted into groups — unaccompanied boys 17 and under; unaccompanied girls 17 and under; male heads of household with their families; and female heads of household with their families.”


Trump Started It


States Fighting Back

States that have pulled their National Guard troops and/or declined to deploy:

  • Rhode Island
  • Connecticut
  • Maryland
  • Virginia
  • North Carolina
  • Oregon
  • Colorado
  • Massachusettes
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Deleware
  • New Hampshire



This is big.  This is the first lawsuit challenging the legality of this policy, and will likely cause a judge to strike down the child separation policy.


Fighting Back

June 30th.  I’ll update this site with more details and locations as they come out.


Business Leaders



I don’t know if the Methodists have excommunication, but if they do, Sessions has earned it.


Defending the Indefensible


Sick Pieces of Shit

I had an unnatural, overwhelming hatred of Corey Lewandowski, even before this.  Now, I’ve gone from “not pissing on him if he were on fire” to “wouldn’t even call for an ambulance if he got hit by a truck walking across the street.”  Fuck him.


Fact Checks


Internment Camps


Literal Nazis




SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A sophisticated hacking campaign launched from computers in China burrowed deeply into satellite operators, defense contractors and telecommunications companies in the United States and southeast Asia, security researchers at Symantec Corp said on Tuesday.

For anyone seeking a TL;DR – these are the companies so far:













I’m not addicted, I can quit any time I want…

Y’all got any more of them space





That’s it for Tuesday.  Let’s see how Wednesday goes.


Thank you, and have a good one.
