Re: Breaking News: National Intelligence Whistle Blower

So they aren't actually quoting the law that says it only applies to certain people, just assuring us that's what it says? Is that how things are supposed to work now?

Re: All the President's golf clubs

Have we ever seen any photos, anywhere, of any trump partaking of water sports that would require jet skis? Seems like, if they were so "active in water sports" that we would have seen some evidence of it at some point. Holding a fish up in a babbling brook is about the closest I remember to anythin...

Re: Center for Immigration Studies v. Richard Cohen and Heidi Beirich

Having litigated a few RICO cases, this does not sound like a valid one to me. Where are the predicate acts of racketeering activity? It's a long list but I doubt expressing one's opinion that a certain group is a hate group qualifies. Here's the list from 18 U.S.C. §1961(1): “racketeering activity...

That’s how they’re going to spin it but I can’t see how autocorrect could turn libel into liable.

Phrasing is odd, but according to the Coast Guard they’ve all been safely rescued.

The Coast Guard’s presser is odd too, also... refers to them as “passengers” in the headline.
Yeah, it just struck me as weird.

That phrasing is odd. Emergency responders use "recovery" for when there is no "rescue" possible, so it sounds like they had one fatality, but they were all rescued.

Re: TS/Hurricane Dorian -- Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Florida, Carolinas (Not Alabama, Donald.)

Saying that Alabama faced a likely impact is compatible with the official 5% forecast. Saying it faced 0% chance is not compatible. The Bahamas being hit by 185 mph wind was a 5% possibility at one point. The rule of thumb is better safe than sorry. I don’t want Biden excluding states or territorie...
