Montreal Expos Win the World Series

By Phantom On October 31st, 2019 at 12:33 pm

I’ve always had a warm spot for Montreal. And the Montreal Expos baseball team.

I saw them play in Shea. I took the train up to Montreal to see them in Canada in 2002.

The team was formed in 1969. It was a big deal in Canada. They had fans from Halifax to Vancouver.

They had some very good players, including the young New Orleans native Rusty Staub, who won the town over by learning French.

The Expos left Montreal for Washington DC after the 2004 season, due to low attendance. They used to draw great, but attendance went way down after a players strike and after the team moved from the tiny Jarry Park to an ugly domed concrete thing that some idiot built for the 1976 Olympics.

I attended the Expos last game, at Shea Stadium in 2004. The move had been announced. After the last pitch, a number of us wouldn’t leave. ” Let’s go Expos “ we chanted. The ushers shooed us out.

There is a small subculture of Expos fans who live in New England and NY state. I am one of them.

Last night, the team that once was the Expos won the World Series. Congratulations, Washington.

Montreal, I hope that you get a team back. Je me souviens.

SIX WEEKS OF THIS

By Pete Moore On October 30th, 2019 at 7:43 pm

I hope the next six weeks pass quickly, but I know my hopes will be dashed. Instead they will be six weeks passing so slowly that Stephen Hawking would have been stumped to explain it.

General Election campaigning hasn’t started yet, Parliament hasn’t been prorogued, and already I can’t stand it. According to Labour, Grandad Semtex out-greens the Green Party because “he has an allotment”. You cannot argue back because that’s “mansplaining”. And a speccie schoolgirl appears to have wandered onto the set. I need some new hobbies, pronto.

Ahhh Due Process

What happens Thursday ?

By Patrick Van Roy On October 29th, 2019 at 3:19 pm

This Thursday on Halloween the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will hold a vote not on Articles of Impeachment, but on what we are not sure of.  Precedent is they hold the vote, if the vote passes then what should happen is that orders are drawn for the division of power. A leader for the Prosecution and a leader for the Defense of the President should be appointed. Both with Subpoena power and the ability to cross examine witnesses in a PUBLIC hearing.

That is what should happen whether or not it does we shall see.

The Speakers hand was forced to do this and not because of Public outcry, or Republican complaints, but because of the incident with Boltons assistant. From the Washington Post:

A former top national security aide to President Trump filed a lawsuit Friday asking a federal judge to resolve conflicting orders from Congress and the White House over whether he must testify in the impeachment inquiry, setting up a potentially momentous legal battle that could determine the course of the investigation.

Charles Kupperman, who served as a deputy to former national security adviser John Bolton, is seeking a judicial ruling on whether he should comply with a subpoena from House Democrats or follow instructions from the White House not to appear.

“Plaintiff obviously cannot satisfy the competing demands of both the Legislative and Executive Branches, and he is aware of no controlling judicial authority definitively establishing which Branch’s command should prevail,” the lawsuit read.

When this occurred Adam Schiff came out and said that it didn’t matter they would just proceed as if he was hiding something, and he was not going to play piddling back and forth games in the courts…..  No the truth is that Schiff knew how the court would respond. They would have responded in favor of the Administration.

Without a vote on an Impeachment inquiry a person can’t be compelled to testify before an Impeachment inquiry. With this vote the Subpoenas issued by Schiff will have Legal Weight and Standing.

The secondary reason for the vote has to do with the primary reason  for this whole Impeachment nonsense. That is to provide cover and distraction for the Crimes committed by the Obama Administration. Yes the Obama Administration and crimes committed by those at the orders of Barack Obama.

In an interview last week James Clapper upon finding out he had just been subpoenaed to testify his response was “Testify to what? What were we supposed to do not follow the orders of the President?”.  Clapper and Brennan are in a panic. One of the main accusation in the Criminal Investigation into the framing of Donald Trump is that foreign assets were used to side step American Law. Only Clapper and Brennan could organize that. The Durham Investigation didn’t become a Criminal one until Barr and Durham came back from talking to the assets used in GB, Aus, and Italy.

The accusations are that the Obama Administration set a honey trap on a green member of Trump’s campaign Pappadopoulos. Using this and the Russian disinformation compiled by British Spy Steele for the Hillary Campaign to go before the Terror Court FISA to get permission to bug the campaign of Donald Trump. They had already opened a Counter Espionage Investigation into the campaign approved of by Barack Obama.

Those actions by the Obama administration are the worst Political Crimes that have ever taken place in our Nations history, if true.

The Reports are about to drop, the Public indictments of members of the Obama Administration are about to begin. All stunts that can be pulled by those wanting to block and distract from this disaster being exposed will happen.

Enjoy the show.

 

UPDATE:

 

Quote Speaker Pelosi “This is NOT an Impeachment Resolution, This is a Resolution!”

and then she leaked her Resolution……. The lady clanks when she walks, but she doesn’t have set….. She refuses to bring an Impeachment inquiry vote, she refuses to allow the Presidents Counsel to participate in Schiff’s Kangaroo Court, the ranking Republican can ONLY call witnesses if they submit a written Request to Schiff and he approves, he can however cross examine any witness that the Democrats call for an equal amount of time that the Dems use to ask questions and no longer. That is an improvement when you consider today when Lt Col Soontobe Courtmartialed was testifying the Republicans asked him who he spoke to about the Call, Schiff ordered the Witness not to answer the question….. 

You see Lt Col Soontobe Courtmartialed is the only person who was on the call to “testify”. He answered Schiff’s question with the same wording as the “Whistle Blower” ……. there is the Leaker of the Presidents Phone Call…. this clown is likely the guy who broke the Law and talked about a Classified Call with the “Whistle Blower” ….. but that’s a side note.

Speaker Pelosi’s Resolution is not Constitutional it seeks to Codify and give legal standing to the denial of Due Process. 

Why Trump is Loved

By Patrick Van Roy On October 28th, 2019 at 8:45 pm

Chicago’s top cop Eddie Johnson Superintendent of Police was found passed out in his car 2 weeks ago after imbibing in Adult Beverages. The good Officers of the CPD helped him and the next day he opened up an investigation of himself…. this sadly is all true. Well the Police Chiefs Convention is being held in good old Chicago. To get into her Ladyship the Mayor’s good graces ole Eddie made an announcement that he would not attend the Police Chiefs Convention because they were hosting President Trump, the President doesn’t measure up to Superintendent Johnson’s moral standards……

Here’s the response…. it’s Beautiful. It crushes every Democrat troupe.

MEANWHILE, IN THE LABOUR MADHOUSE

By Pete Moore On October 28th, 2019 at 8:23 pm

By now I’d forgive the world for thinking that British politics isn’t politics at all. No body politic can be so dysfunctional, they have to conclude. It’s really a Pythonesque performance art piece aimed at seeing how long they can keep going until they’re rumbled.

RIP VLADIMIR BUKOVSKY

By Pete Moore On October 28th, 2019 at 6:23 pm

The anti-Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky has died. He was a great and brave man who spent 12 years as a political prisoner for undermining that evil state before being thrown out. It’s a life well lived.

Fancy calling your lollipop ladies “crossing guards”. That’s just odd.

A DISGRACE TO WASHING MACHINE SALESMEN

By Pete Moore On October 28th, 2019 at 5:20 pm

You feel dirty just reading about politicians now.

Keith Vaz, a Labour MP for Leicester, has been suspended from Parliament for six months and faces a recall election. It’s mainly for lying to the Commons watchdog which has been investigating him for three years while he claimed to be ill. The outcome is no surprise. Vaz is one of the more oily fish even in that scum-filled sea.

The investigation was sparked by him procuring sex with rent boys and offering to buy them cocaine. To avoid detection he told the rent boys that he’s a washing machine salesman called Jim. You really cannot make it up.

Vaz claimed amnesia about the whole thing. Just as well the encounter was secretly filmed then. That’s how he was nabbed. The Speaker, John Bercow, has gone to extraordinary lengths to protect Keith Vaz in the past.  Not even someone so high and corrupt could keep him off the hook this time.

These people are truly disgusting.

AL-BAGHDADI DEAD AGAIN

By Pete Moore On October 27th, 2019 at 6:34 pm

The fugitive leader of the Islamic State (IS) group killed himself during a US military operation in north-west Syria, President Donald Trump has said.

Speaking from the White House, Mr Trump said Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi detonated his suicide vest after fleeing into a tunnel, chased by US military dogs.

I hope the dogs are ok.
