this blog develops the idea that a theory of man in history can be worked out around the theme that man's self expression in culture and society is motivated by the desire to find meaning in man's existence. i proceed by summarizing seminal works that provide insights into the dynamics of this process, with the view that the culmination of this exploration was reached with god's self revelation in jesus. i'll hopefully also explore the developments that followed this event.

What anyone in the Left can get away with, if you are a GOP supporter you will be crucified.
Manafort vs Podesta’s brother.
Weiner’s laptop is still MIA.
Clinton foundation vs how Rep Stephen Stockman Was treated
Wolf vs Assange*
I'm just appalled. And I suspect that the SDNY was just waiting for the best moment to drop the bomb.ReplyDelete
Who knew Billions was reality TV?
The biggest thing about the Bannon arrest is how early it was. This was probably set to go off the last week of September or the first week of October. Biden's internal polling must be awful, if they used it now.Delete
I assume if you gave these idiots a test they'd come out as pretty smart. Which just goes to show that smart people do remarkably dumb things. You see it in all walks of life.ReplyDelete
There are, of course, people who are "smart" — or is it just savvy? — in a specific area, but absolute idiots in many others. If true, the stupidity in this case seems nonetheless exceptional.Delete
Difficult to fathom.Delete
"savvy? — in a specific area, but absolute idiots in many others."Delete
My theory is, their talent in one area lures them into styling themselves to be among the Sophisticated, such that they end up biting off more than they can chew.
This is in turn, exacerbated by them being encouraged
"whether by their own propensities, or by the demands of others — to speak extensively about matters of which they are to some degree ignorant."
(See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_Bullshit .)
Much of this coming from the Higher Ed./ MSM system, these just crawling with (often charismatic) smarty-pantses.
Timing is strange, why now and not October, perhaps Durham?ReplyDelete
They used Bannon in the LA Times alleging “lying to congress”to drown out Clinesmith.
Ray, I'm not willing to go there. IMO, the timing is better for Trump--sooner rather than later. I'll assume they indicted when the case was ready. Much better than October, IMO.Delete
I assume Bannon has lots of dirt on people in D.C. in both parties. Any chance Bannon will graymail the prosecutors into dropping the case or just getting a slap on the wrist?Delete
Biden's internal polling must be very bad for BidenDelete
yeah, if these were deep staters rolling out an october surprise you'd figure they'd wait until October. more importantly, the people defrauded were core Trump supporters--not exactly sympathetic victims for Democratic attack adsReplyDelete
Maybe I should back up a bit. This would be awfully stupid of Bannon. And I haven't seen anything that would make me think he is unethical. Also, the SDNY is a nest of vipers. Didn't Patrick Fitzgerald hail from there?ReplyDelete
The SDNY has one mission and one mission only: destroy Trump. So, we shall see about this. Yes, it looks bad. It is designed to look bad. A video came out of Minneapolis a little while ago. Looked bad too.
So: I'm trying to keep an open mind. Every shell company isn't an evil fraud. Ask the bankers in NYC.
As soon as Durham begins revealing additional indictments, the MSM will deploy a preplanned media campaign vilifying Barr as Trump's dastardly hatchet man conducting a vile vendetta against the saintly public servants who selflessly saved the USA from Putin's malicious treachery. However, the indictment of Bannon (et al.) makes that argument more difficult to sell to middle-of-the-road voters.ReplyDelete
Frankly, I think indicting one of the RINO senators with coup blood on their hands would have been more effective (or perhaps Burr for stock trading on insider information), but for some reason Bannon gets to be the one put in the docks for public humiliation instead.
Says it all:ReplyDelete
Kolfage could have taken a salary and not lost one donor. Set up shell corps why? To avoid criticism on social media?Entire situation is beyond moronic.
I guess there's always more that can be said:ReplyDelete
The only thing worse than getting arrested for fraud may be getting arrested for fraud on the yacht of a Chinese billionaire accused of fraud. The defense is going to have work to do to avoid the trial from becoming a pilot for the Rich and Fraudulent.
I am always interested in Jon Turley’s writings, but he is still very NOCD* about Trump or anyone even slightly connected with him. A bit of a snob.Delete

Just saw this article in the 8/15 LA Times (my husband still likes it for sports - I skim later to see what the Other Side is up to.) This reveals what the corrupt SSCI was up to after the Mueller report was issued:ReplyDelete
Senate committee sought investigation of Bannon, raised concerns about Trump family testimony
Their referral to the SDNY was undoubtedly intended to ensnare some Trumps along with Bannon.
No doubt. That's one thing that sundance is correct about--the SSCI is ground zero for NeverTrump GOPers. The referral of Bannon has nothing to do with the current indictment. It's notable that we've heard absolutely zero about any of this stuff, which suggests that Barr and DoJ found the referrals to be without merit. My guess. LATimes just trying to resurrect Russia Hoax.Delete
The La Times article was page 1 on BBC Bannon potentially lying to Congress referral, and Clinesmith page 7. I view it as a distraction tactic.Delete
From American Thinker, an interesting dissection - details we won’t see in the MSM:ReplyDelete
The Story Behind Bannon’s Arrest
@ Bebe and Unknown:ReplyDelete
I still think this very foolish on Bannon's part. Trump was wise to keep him at arm's length.
