Others commented that they've hardly ever seen anyone except right wingers behave like that. Natchez has advanced the theory that right wingers are simply angrier and more frustrated than the rest of us, because deep down they see the rest of the nation moving further and further away from them. They're just very frustrated and angry, and it makes them behave like nasty-minded children.

Starr vs Mueller: How Do They Compare?

Well, let's look at the time line.

Starr got his FIRST conviction in May of 1996. He'd been on the job since August of 1994 (See Washington Post - https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/whitewater/timeline.htm ). That's 21 months.


May 17, 2017 :  Mueller appointed as special counsel.

July 27, 2017 : Papadopoulos arrested.

October 5, 2017: Papadopoulos enters guilty plea in federal court ( https://www.justice.gov/file/1007346/download )

Note, that's LESS than FIVE months from Mueller's appointment until he bagged his first conviction, a felony! The crime Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to was lying about his meeting with one agent he believed to have  "substantial connections to Russian government officials" and met with yet another agent he ALSO believed to have connections with the Russian government.  ( https://www.justice.gov/file/1007346/download )

Now let's look at Kenneth Starr's record.

August 5, 1994: Starr is appointed special Whitewater Prosecutor ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/whitewater/timeline.htm )

May 26, 1996: Starr gets his FIRST conviction, and it has NOTHING to do with Whitewater
( https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/whitewater/timeline2.htm )

That's over TWENTY ONE MONTHS from the time Starr was appointed until he bagged his first conviction of ANY SORT; and it had NOTHING to do with Whitewater!

___________________________

It took Mueller less than five months to nail a felon for lying about his meetings with agents he believed to be connected to the Russian government (Russian collusion).

It took Starr TWENTY ONE months to nail someone on charges that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Clintons or with the Whitewater land deal.

________________________

One lead investigator nails his first felony conviction in less than 6 months of being on the job.

Another lead investigator takes TWENTY-ONE months to get his first conviction of ANY SORT.

Riddle: Guess which one the right wingers say should hurry up?  


_____________________________________

Here's another scenario: 

One investigator, looking into a real estate transaction, busts someone for a cable television deal.

Another investigator looking into collusion with a foreign adversary busts a suspect (and gets a felony conviction)  for lying to the feds about his collusion with someone the suspect believes to be an operative representing that foreign government.

Riddle:  Guess which one the right wingers accuse of going "outside his scope"?


Trump Double Crosses His Supporters

Trump undercuts his supporters in heartland USA. Trump KILLS jobs in the US; goes to bat for jobs in China and Russia.

From "Trump supporters suffer unintended consequences of his policies" in the Washington Post.

 ''Those jobs will now go to other countries — specifically Russia. “Russian aircraft makers, who can skirt the U.S. sanctions, are already working on deals,” the Puget Sound Business Journal reports.''

An entrepreneur in Kentucky says Trump is putting him out of business. He says he can't run his landscaping business thanks to restrictions imposed by Trump.

 “Eddie Devine voted for [Trump] because he thought he would be good for American business. Now, he says, the Trump administration’s restrictions on seasonal foreign labor may put him out of business. ‘I feel like I’ve been tricked by the devil,’ said Devine, owner of … Devine Creations Landscaping. ‘I feel so stupid.’

Trump, Cohen, Russia, and Corruption

Now we know Trump's fixer went to Russia during the campaign and pitched Trump plans to build in Moscow. Then after helping put Trump in the WH, one of Putin's oligarchs funneled (Rudy's word; not mine) cash into Trump/Cohen's slush fund account; THEN Cohen went to the Oval Office and pitched for easing sanctions on Russia; Cohen followed that meeting up with a written request to foreign agent working as NSA, Michael Flynn.

Then, Cohen sold access to Trump which resulted in MILLIONS of dollars moving in and out of the slush fund account.

These guys are making Nixon and his Plumbers look like a bunch of choir boys sneaking a smoke while at church camp.

Trump Helping Russia Again

''Like so many stupid, destructive policies foisted on us by this White House — from steel tariffs and anti-Muslim immigration bans to the ruinous assault on the State Department, the FBI, and the intelligence community — Trump’s latest decision seems designed to advance the Kremlin’s agenda.'' -- Joe Conason

http://www.nationalmemo.com/trumps-policy-benefits-russian-interests/

Is this why the Russians are pumping cash into the slush fund account maintained by Trump's personal fixer?

Cohen's LLC Paid by Russian

"Over the last two years, a shell company set up by the president’s longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, received more than $1 million dollars from a Russian oligarch and from several multi-national corporations, according to documents obtained by multiple news outlets. The limited liability company, called Essential Consultants, was initially created shortly before the 2016 election, and was used to funnel a $130,000 payment from Cohen to the pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels . . . "

"On Tuesday, Daniels’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, revealed that a bank account controlled by Essential Consultants had also received payments from Russian billionaire Viktor Vekselberg, who is the subject of U.S. sanctions; AT&T, which is currently engaged in an anti-trust lawsuit with the Department of Justice; Novartis, whose C.E.O. met with Trump in January; and a Korean aerospace company that is part of a multi-billion-dollar bid to provide jets to the U.S. Air Force."

It looks a LOT like influence peddling,  or what's called "pay for play," or what the law calls "bribery."

Novartis Paid $400,000 to Trump LLC

Pharma giant, Novartis, paid Trump/Cohen's phony LLC (the one they set up to launder the Daniels payment) $400,000; Trump then agreed to sit down with the CEO of Novartis in late January, 2018 AFTER his phony LLC received the final installment of the four part $400,000 payment.

Former federal prosecutor, Joyce Vance, says of the phony LLC Trump and Cohen set up to pay off Stormy: ''Stinks of influence peddling . . . or what prosecutors call 'pay to play,' or what federal statutes call 'bribery.'''  

They set up the LLC supposedly to launder the payments to Daniels. But NOW we find out the Russians put in $400,000; AT&T put in $200,000; Novartis (Pharma) put in $400,000; and Cohen paid himself ONE MILLION dollars.

AT&T says it got ZERO legal or consulting work from the LLC; and Novartis says, HEY that was our FORMER CEO who did that. He's no longer with us.

And the Russians aren't talking.

This story has legs! 

Trump "Fixer" Bank Account Funded by Putin Oligarch

We KNOW the oligarch involved funneled a TON of money into the Trump inaugural; and we KNOW some of the inaugural funds found THEIR way into the pockets of Trump friends.

Now former prosecutors are saying --- the question Mueller is probably asking is ''Did some of this Russian oligarch money find it's way into Trump's bank accounts?''

________________________

When they busted the Watergate burglars, they had in their possession one hundred dollar bills that were then traced back to illegal contributions to the Nixon campaign.

Nixon then tried to use the CIA to pressure the FBI into NOT following the money trail.

In this case, the money used to pay off Stormy Daniels is linked to an account being funded by one of Putin's oligarchs!

Trump, like Nixon, tried to get the FBI NOT to follow the money trail.

________________________________

A friend of Trump's and Cohen's phoned one MSNBC commentator on May 8th  and told him he was going to be AMAZED at the depth and breadth of the scandal as detail begin to emerge over the next 6 to 9 months....

In other words, this bombshell discovery from May 8th is just the TIP of the iceberg. Remember ---we're talking about Russian oligarchs; they are BILLIONAIRES. A few millions here; a few millions there --- pretty soon we're talking about SERIOUS money being funneled (Rudy's word; not mine) into Trump/Cohen controlled accounts. 

_______________________________

Cohen transferred $1 MILLION from his personal Morgan Stanley account into the account of the phony LLC he and Trump set up. Then, he claimed he had to BORROW the $130k he used to pay off Stormy.

If he had a MILLION to move around at will, why did he have to borrow $130k?

It's not adding up. 

Trump on Iran Nuclear Accord - He's Clueless

From WAPO's Paul Waldman:

"We all know the real reason Trump wants to walk away from the nuclear accord. It isn’t because Iran is violating the terms, because it isn’t. It isn’t because the terms were terribly unfair to the United States, because they weren’t. It isn’t because Iran is doing things outside the agreement that we don’t like, because those actions exist outside the agreement. It’s because Trump is a petulant man-baby who believes that anything that has Barack Obama’s name on it has to be destroyed, no matter the consequences."

Gas Lighting by Trump and His Surrogates


One technique the Trump Monkey surrogates use is the diversionary tactic.



By uttering demonstrably FALSE or outrageously ridiculous statements (or by hurling personal insults; demanding the opponent disclose personal details about himself, change the subject to OTHER bad actors, etc.), they attempt to bait the opponent into responding to that diversionary feint. If the opponent DOES change focus from Trump's conduct to the surrogate's lying, insults, personal prying, etc., then the surrogate achieves his objective ---- diverting attention from Trump's conduct.

The Shape of Things --- The Trump Melt-Down

Trump invited Russia to hack her emails. We have him on tape. His campaign manager, SNL and son arranged to meet with Putin's operatives to discuss the exchange of stolen goods. It's documented in the emails. Trump admitted that he fired Comey to impede the investigation; we have him on tape.

And now, Cohen is about to sing like a bird.

It's no wonder the wingers are in a panic.

1) Trump invited Russia to hack Hillary's emails.

2) Junior met with Russian spies in Trump Tower to arrange the exchange of the
hacked emails.

3) Manafort and Gates worked with an operative they KNEW to be a Putin intelligence officer.

4) Trump ADMITTED he fired Comey to end the Russia investigation.

5) Trump and his team FABRICATED a LIE to cover up for Junior's conspiracy meeting at Trump Tower.

6) A Putin oligarch funneled (Rudy's word; not mine) at least $400,000 into the account of the phony LLC Cohen set up to launder Trump payments to Stormy Daniels.

These are the things we KNOW.

Condemnation before investigation is the height of ignorance.
You can't subpoena a sitting President for a crime he hasn't committed. Mueller is toast!

Cohen Suspected of a Crime

“There is a crime-fraud exception to attorney-client privilege,” Weisberg said. “The affidavits that went into the warrant application — and possibly direct conversations with the judge — would have had to give at least prima facie reason to believe that the communications, even where they were privileged, give some indication that Cohen was involved in committing or planning some kind of fraud.”

 _____________________________________

What does this tell us? First, it reflects that numerous officials — not just Mr. Mueller — concluded that there was probable cause to believe that Mr. Cohen’s law office, home and hotel room contained evidence of a federal crime. A search warrant for a lawyer’s office implicates the attorney-client privilege and core constitutional rights, so the Department of Justice requires unusual levels of approval to seek one. Prosecutors must seek the approval of the United States attorney of the district — in this case the office of Geoffrey Berman, the interim United States attorney appointed by President Trump.

Third, the search suggests that prosecutors most likely believe that Mr. Cohen’s clients used his legal services for the purpose of engaging in crime or fraud. Attorney-client communications are privileged, which is why it’s so unusual and difficult for prosecutors to get approval to search a law office. Justice Department regulations require federal prosecutors to set up a system to have a separate group — a so-called dirty team — review the files and separate out attorney-client communications so that the investigators and prosecutors won’t see anything protected by the privilege.

But if a client is using a lawyer’s services for the purpose of engaging in crime or fraud, there is no privilege. The very aggressive search of Mr. Cohen’s office for attorney-client files suggests that the prosecutors believe they can convince a judge that communications between Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen fall under the crime-fraud exception. If you think they can’t pull that off, think again — they’ve already done it once: Mr. Mueller persuaded a judge to apply the exception to compel testimony from Paul Manafort’s lawyer, arguing successfully that he engaged her services in order to commit fraud.

Ken White is a criminal defense attorney and former federal prosecutor at Brown White & Osborn LLP in Los Angeles.

Yes, Putin Set Out to Help Trump "Win"


''The ebullient reaction among high-ranking Russian officials — including some who U.S. officials believe had knowledge of the country’s cyber campaign to interfere in the U.S. election — contributed to the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that Moscow’s efforts were aimed at least in part at helping Trump win the White House.'' - WAPO

''“It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on an intelligence presentation made to U.S. senators. “That’s the consensus view.”  - WAPO

''The CIA shared its latest assessment with key senators in a closed-door briefing on Capitol Hill last week, in which agency officials cited a growing body of intelligence from multiple sources.

Trump Assures Reporters He’ll Make Giuliani a Better Liar

Just a day after he gave a rambling interview that may have implicated Donald Trump in two separate federal crimes and given Robert Mueller’s team a heap of new material, Rudy Giuliani, legal mind extraordinaire, is scrambling to set the record straight. In an interview with NBC News, the newest addition to Trump’s legal team explained that when the president denied knowing anything about Michael Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels—“no,” he answered last month when a reporter asked whether he was aware the cash had changed hands—it was because he’d only recently learned that the funds he sent to Cohen were intended to reimburse him for the hush money. “I don’t think the president realized he paid [Cohen] back for that specific thing until [his legal team] made him aware of the paperwork,” Giuliani said, adding that Trump’s response to the revelation was, “Oh my goodness, I guess that’s what it was for.”
Rudy’s feeble attempt at damage control came after he admitted to Sean Hannity on Wednesday that Trump was aware of the payment to Daniels. He dug that hole even deeper in a subsequent interview, asking, “Imagine if that came out on October 15, 2016, in the middle of the last debate with Hillary Clinton? . . . Cohen made it go away.” (Per the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, a monetary sum can’t be used “for the purpose of influencing any election for Federal office” in any way—including to stave off potentially damaging revelations about affairs with porn stars!) Giuliani reversed course on Thursday, claiming to NBC that “If there was no campaign, Cohen would have made the same payment in the same amount to prevent personal embarrassment and heartache to [Trump’s] wife.”
Scoffing at the theory that his controversial publicity spree had caused irreversible damage to Trump’s legal position, Giuliani framed his admissions as part of an elite strategy concocted between himself and the president: “I wanted to get out in front of the Special Counsel and the Southern District [of New York] because at some point they would realize this information and leak it,” he said.
If the president was looped in, however, his staff was not. “The first awareness I had was during the interview last night,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Thursday of Giuliani’s disclosure, while staffers were reportedly left “scrambling” to manage the fallout, and “expressed a mixture of exasperation and horror,” with one simply texting a Washington Post reporter “a string of emoji characters in response, including a tiny container of popcorn.” Evidently, emojis were in heavy use Wednesday—per The Wall Street Journal, “another official, asked about the thinking behind Wednesday’s announcement, responded by text only an emoji of a man shrugging.”
Cohen himself, who has recently expressed bewilderment at Trump’s counterproductive interviews, was caught off guard by Guiliani’s, too. Such were the depths of his displeasure, in fact, that they could not be contained by the broad lexicon of the emoji keypad. “He said, ‘look, there’s two people that know exactly what happened, myself and the president, and you’ll be hearing my side of the story,’” said Donny Deutsch, who spoke to Cohen on Thursday night. “And he was obviously very frustrated with what had come out yesterday.”
By Friday morning, even Trump had seemingly cottoned on to the fact that his newest lawyer’s pronouncements could make his life more difficult. “Rudy is a great guy, but he started a day ago,” the president told reporters, though Giuliani’s start date was actually two weeks earlier. “He’ll get his facts straight.” Whether those facts would be of the “alternative” variety or not, the president declined to say. As if to prove the point, he boldly denied ever having told reporters that he hadn’t known about the payment to Daniels, despite video evidence to the contrary. “You take a look at what I said,” he added. “You go take a look at what we said.”


The Naked Truth About Trump


The Naked Truth about Trump
By Maureen Dowd
May 5, 2018

Rudy Giuliani confused everyone a few days ago about the Stormy Daniels payoff. But, President Trump later assured, his new lawyer would “get his facts straight.”
WASHINGTON — Before I get to America’s Mayor and America’s Nightmare, I would like to say this:
Michelle Wolf was right when she turned a gimlet eye on the media.
“You guys are obsessed with Trump,” the comedian said at the White House Correspondents Dinner. “Did you used to date him? Because you pretend like you hate him, but I think you love him.
“I think what no one in this room wants to admit is that Trump has helped all of you. He couldn’t sell steaks or vodka or water or college or ties or Eric, but he has helped you. He’s helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster, and now you’re profiting off of him. If you’re going to profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money, because he doesn’t have any.”
You know Donald Trump also believes that he is the best thing to ever happen to the media — and that he should be getting a cut of the action. There’s nothing he hates more than feeling that someone has profited off him, while he gets nothing. Remember when he proposed a $5 million ransom to show up at the CNN debate?
Donald Trump is damaging the country and civic discourse, and undermining the First Amendment. But this Batman cartoon villain with an uncanny gift for cliffhangers and lurid story lines is buoying journalism, giving us a reprieve while we figure out how to save ourselves in the digital age.
And he’s making journalists stars in a way they haven’t been since Watergate, inspiring documentaries and movies and helping them secure lucrative book and TV deals.
The most intense, toxic cat-and-mouse game in President Trump’s life is not with Robert Mueller. It’s with the press. (Besides, it’s not a cat-and-mouse game with Mueller; it’s just cat.)
Trump is an attention addict, and now he’s in a position to get all the attention in the world, as long as he keeps those sirens blaring. CNN has been on a constant Breaking News Alert for months. And we are Trump addicts, hooked on the hyperventilating rush of wild stories and all the great things that accrue from playing Beowulf to Trump’s Grendel.
As we pat ourselves on the back, though, for the grueling hours and Pulitzer-quality scoops, we should remember one thing: Even if we vanished tomorrow, Trump would probably end up in the same place.
You could put a nanny cam on the guy and leave the room, and he would crash out of his high chair. He incriminates himself faster than we can incriminate him. And he surrounds himself, in the Trumpland of Misfit Toys, with playmates who have that same perverse gift for self-incrimination and immolation.
You know you’re in trouble when Donald Trump has to correct you on the facts. And Rudy Giuliani is in trouble. He and the Donald, the lawyer who was a mob buster and the president who acts like a mob boss, cooked up a harebrained plan to get Trump past the Stormy Daniels problem.
The gruesome twosome, whose reputations have grown darker since the days when they swanned around New York as larger-than-life figuras, didn’t consult any top White House officials, even the counsel. When Ashley Parker, a Washington Post White House reporter, texted a West Wing adviser, the adviser texted back a string of emojis, including a popcorn box, as in they were just watching this horror movie from the audience.
Even on a great day, things are always unraveling with Trump. Chaos is always getting unleashed. Turbulence is always brewing.
So Rudy’s scheme quickly unraveled.
He admitted in TV interviews this week that President Trump had reimbursed Michael Cohen — also a Sean Hannity lawyer — for the $130,000 payoff to keep the porn star mum about her Lake Tahoe liaison with Trump, while claiming that the president didn’t know specifically what the payment was for. “Oh my goodness, I guess that’s what it was for,” Trump said, according to Giuliani, incredibly making the First Vulgarian sound more like Mike Pence or James Comey.
Instead of getting Trump out of a jam, it jammed him into a deeper hole, giving Mueller’s team new areas of legal inquiry and material to add to its mountain of damaging records, and possibly helping the special counsel fill in the blanks on the 70 blank subpoena forms he just requested from a courthouse in Virginia.
Trump distanced himself from his good friend, as he is wont to do, promising that Rudy will “get his facts straight.” This prompted Vanity Fair to write the headline: “Trump Assures Reporters He’ll Make Giuliani a Better Liar.”
Trump’s game is keeping everyone, especially the press, riveted.
“He needs the excitement,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. “Without the drama and the crisis and the powerful opponent, he’d be just another guy.”

"Cheating Clause" May Threaten Trump's Wallet

A legal analyst on Chris Matthews show this evening (May 3, 2018)  began to describe her theory on why Trump's story on Stormy Daniels keeps changing. She began to say it has to do with the pre-nup Trump signed with Melania -- and that there may be a ''cheating clause'' that could spell REAL FINANCIAL TROUBLE for Trump.

As Matthews often does when a woman begins nailing a man's balls to the wall, he cut her off and wouldn't allow her to develop her theory for the TV audience.

But others too are speculating that Melania may have Donald by the short hairs (financially speaking) on this Daniels affair.

Paula Jones Rule Used against Trump

Summer Zervos is one of the women Trump said before the election that he was going to sue.

He backed down, of course.

But instead, she's suing HIM!

And she's invoked the Paula Jones Rule to force Trump to explain his conduct not ONLY toward Ms. Zervos, but toward ANY WOMAN they can find Trump discussing on MGM tapes. (Apprentice).

You know --- like discussing pussy grabbing, sexually assaulting them, etc.

''In the subpoena issued Wednesday, Ms. Wang asked M.G.M. to turn over all documents, video or audio that feature Ms. Zervos or Mr. Trump talking about Ms. Zervos. The subpoena also seeks any recording in which Mr. Trump speaks of women “in any sexual or inappropriate manner.”''

Trump Lies about Comey Memo

 From Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post Fact Checker:

"Trump cannot say that the memo regarding the Feb. 14 meeting — the one memo Comey specifically hoped would reach the news media — contained classified information. For whatever reason, Comey wrote it specifically so it would not be considered classified — and the FBI released it without a single redaction. Ergo, it is not classified. The president further tips this into Four Pinocchio territory by accusing Comey of committing a crime by releasing an unclassified memo."

Trump Campaign Tied to Russian Intelligence

"Mueller just connected a top Trump campaign staffer to Russian intelligence"


Every time the right wingers say, "No evidence of collusion, I have to wonder why the talking heads like Chuck Todd, for instance, fail to cite this well-known fact:


"Paul Manafort, the former chair of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, had a long professional relationship with a man connected to Russian intelligence. And special counsel Robert Mueller says that man, Konstantin Kilimnik, was still working with Russian intelligence in 2016, when Trump was running for president.

Kilimnik had worked with Manafort since 2005, helping with Manafort’s clients in Ukraine, and continued to talk with Manafort’s team during the election.
Mueller’s team made the link public on Wednesday, saying that Kilimnik was still working with Russian intelligence when he was communicating with the Trump team in September and October of 2016".

https://www.vox.com/2018/3/29/17177948/konstantin-kilimnik-manafort-mueller-trump-russia-intelligence

https://is.gd/CbfOMF

Name-calling, arm-flapping, and appeals to mockery will not change the facts, boys. *S*

"The Mueller link between Kilimnik and Russian intelligence comes from court documents filed in the case of a lawyer who worked with Manafort and Rick Gates."

Can Trump Pardon State Crimes?

 Here's what at least one legal scholar says about it:

''The downside for Trump is that his presidential pardon power does not extend to state crimes — for the same reasons that underlie the dual sovereignty principle. Mueller, of course, knows this, and may be setting up the infrastructure to allow Schneiderman to pursue any prosecutions in the event he can’t – or to conduct them simultaneously.''

Asha Rangappa is a former special agent in the Counterintelligence Division of the FBI in New York City. She is currently an associate dean at Yale Law School.

Starve the Beast

Why pass a massive tax cut when employment is high and unemployment are low? Bruce Bartlett, former domestic policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan explains. From "The Washington Post":

"Because for decades, conservative intellectuals have pushed for big tax cuts; less to grow the economy and more because they want to “starve the beast.” They want to force a major overall spending cut that would be a political non-starter without first passing a tax cut that creates a deficit so large, something must be done about it. Spending cuts must be enacted, then, as they would be presented as the only way to pay for the already passed tax cut’s lost revenue."

Pee-Tape Seems More Likely

The pee-tape thing is gaining credibility. David Corn and Michael Isikoff report that Trump was a fan of a certain night club in Vegas that featured a rather ''unique'' stage show. This is from a Jonathan Chaite piece in "New York Magazine."

''Among the club’s regular acts cited by the judge was one called “Hot for Teacher,” in which naked college girls simulate urinating on a professor. In another act, two women disrobe and then “one female stands over the other female and simulates urinating while the other female catches the urine in two wine glasses.”''

I'm a Peeliever" - by Jonathan Chaite

''James Comey’s book describes a President Trump “obsessed” with allegations compiled in a dossier by British agent Christopher Steele that he was secretly recorded in Moscow in 2013 paying prostitutes to urinate on a bed that President Obama had slept in. I used to doubt that this episode really happened. I now believe it probably did. I am obviously far from certain, but since Steele’s dossier came out, an accumulation of evidence has tipped the balance from unlikely to likely.'' - Jonathan Chaite

Trees Produce Smog?

dosset here’s a test and opportunity for you to start gaining some credibility.

On trees produce ozone, I gave a later, fuller statement on that topic. That trees have
been shown to produce smog, the chief ingredient of which is ozone, and that they do it in
the same way cars produce smog. This in relation to the Reagan statement.

Do you acknowledge I made the fuller claim?

dosset no, again no “all sorts”. There’s the simple claim in your saved post. And since you
couldn’t make heads or tails of how it corresponds to the Princeton paper on it, I have
made, previously and again today, made the claim more detailed so the fullness of it fit
precisely into the Princeton paper, giving you a chance to understand it.

Do you acknowledge that I’ve made a fuller claim than your saved post, yes or no?

8222   PM:   Palerider   [Quote]     -- 5:02pm -- Sat, Apr 14, 18 pst
Palerider
I predict that dosset will not acknowledge the fuller claim was made and he will still
continue to post the simpler save version. He will do this because he will contend that
since I didn’t lay it out specifically, that both cars and trees create VOC’s and VOC’s react
to other present atmospheric gasses and sunlight to become ozone, where ozone is the
primary ingredient of smog, that means the simple statement is wrong and crazy. But it
may more accurately show that dosset either doesn’t understand the science, or chooses
not to understand the science because he can’t stand that Reagan said something that
turns out to be true, where I serve as a proxy for his hand ringing on that. This refusal to
acknowledge the fuller claim likely shows he knows that it will completely fit the scientific
papers easily found on the topic and underscores his dishonesty on this topic.
