    A man was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket.

    The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will tell everyone how smart and brave you are and how you are my hero."

    The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it, and returned it to his pocket.

    The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will be your loving companion for an entire week."

    The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it, and returned it to his pocket.

    The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for a year and do ANYTHING you want."

    Again the man took the frog out, smiled at it, and put it back into his pocket.

    Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a year and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

    The man said, "Look, I'm a computer programmer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool."

    An elderly chess player was studying the game at home. His much younger wife brought him a cup of tea and biscuit.

    "Tell me," he asked , "if I died would you marry another chess player?"

    "Yes, I think I could." she replied.

    "You wouldn't give him my Ruy Lopez book collection would you?"

    - "No, he only plays 1. d4."

    Many libs are not into vaccinations. Can any of you tell us their decision-making process if they find themselves in contact with China or cruise or plane around China? What is an anti-vaxxer to do?
    So tell us, Joe, what was your decision-making process when you composed this moronic post?

    'He doesn't give a f---': Trump is making a fool out of every Republican senator who said he learned his lesson from impeachment

    Sonam Sheth 3 hours ago

    https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-made-fools-republican-senators-impeachment-trial-2020-2


    ** At least five Republican senators said they believed President Trump would act with more caution after being impeached.

    ** Since his acquittal earlier this month, Trump has purged his administration of those he perceives as disloyal, and his attorney general has exercised unprecedented political influence over the Justice Department.

    ** "He doesn't give a f---," a GOP strategist in frequent contact with the White House told Insider. "Why should he? He's the commander in chief, and the party did the right thing standing by him."

    ** Trump has shown GOP senators "how foolish, naive, or hypocritical they were," one former prosecutor told Insider. "The guy is operating a well-orchestrated crime spree while making himself money and lowering his golf score at the same time."

    ** "There need to be mass protests," an expert on fascism told Insider on Wednesday. "The Republican Party is betraying democracy, and these are historical times. Someone has got to push back."


    The president admitted on Wednesday that he hadn't learned the lesson Republican senators hoped he had.

    "Some Republicans have said they hoped you would learn a lesson from impeachment," a reporter asked Trump. "What lesson did you learn from impeachment?"

    "That the Democrats are crooked," Trump replied. "They've got a lot of crooked things going. That they're vicious. That they shouldn't have brought impeachment. And that my poll numbers are 10 points higher."

    The president's actions show the "foolishness" and "naivety" of Republican lawmakers who publicly expressed hope that he would change or grow from his impeachment, said Jens David Ohlin, a vice dean at Cornell Law School and an expert on criminal and constitutional law.

    "I don't think it is too strong to say that senators like Collins and Alexander are indirectly responsible for this mess," Ohlin told Insider. "They had the chance to hold Trump responsible and refused to — and then had the temerity to claim afterwards that the administration would start behaving again. If anything, things have only gotten worse."

    You should listen to yourself Whodey - You, and the rest of the Trump Supporters here spent most of 2017 and 2018 telling us surveys and polls are meaningless because a few of them predicted Trump would lose the election, now you dig up a grand total of one survey that tells you what you want to hear, and you display it in these forums like it's the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    The dog and pony show that is the Bill Barr Department of Justice managed to outdo itself Tuesday.

    The lead prosecutors in the Roger Stone case had filed a sentencing memo calling for a sentence of between 87 to 108 months' imprisonment, well within the Federal guidelines for his conviction for obstruction of Congress, five counts of making false statements to Congress and witness tampering. https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/6773167-D-D-C-19-Cr-00018-Dckt-000279-000-Filed-2020-02-10.html

    Of course, the Obstructor in Chief threw a fit at one of his cronies having to actually face consequences for their engaging in acts to illegally shield the truth from the American People. From the sentencing memo:

    "In his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Stone told the Committee five categories of lies. These lies were designed to conceal Stone's communications with Corsi, Credico and the Trump campaign about Wikileaks in 2016."

    So, Stone engaged in a cover up to shield the Trump campaign. Trump screams that the sentencing recommendation is "disgraceful" as any good mob boss would. But rather than ignoring this blatant attempt to interfere with the criminal justice system, Bill Barr's DOJ overrules the prosecutors on the case and replaces the sentencing memo with one urging leniency!

    Now we are supposed to believe Trump's tweets had absolutely nothing to do with this:

    "Top Justice Department spokesperson Kerri Kupec told NBC News that the decision to reverse course on the sentencing recommendation was made prior to Trump's almost 2 a.m. tweet."

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/three-roger-stone-prosecutors-resign-from-case-after-doj-backpedals-on-sentencing-recommendation/ar-BBZTpf0?

    I'll leave it to others to consider how believable that is considering the memo was submitted to the Court late Monday.

    All four prosecutors on the case immediately resigned after Barr altered the recommendations in the case:

    "The prosecution team in Roger Stone's criminal case abruptly resigned from the case on Tuesday after the Justice Department said it planned to reduce the recommended sentence for the longtime Trump associate."

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/three-roger-stone-prosecutors-resign-from-case-after-doj-backpedals-on-sentencing-recommendation/ar-BBZTpf0?

    This is totally unprecedented, corrupt behavior from the DOJ overruling lead prosecutors to urge a lesser sentence for a crony of the President found guilty of crimes attempting to benefit him.

    Hopefully, the Judge ignores the ridiculously corrupt second memorandum and throws the book at Stone.

    Then he gets pardoned
    Wouldn't surprise me. Perhaps Donald Trump constant pardoning of dirty criminals is something Democrats can run on.

    Of course, no advanced democracy should have something as banana republic-tier as the head of government playing judge.

    Worst case scenario: They're banking on the permanence of the "fix is in" principle.

    I hope that they're wrong.

    I hope that the issues of domestic and foreign election interference and tampering have been dealt with successfully. They've had 4 years. There's no excuse.
    Problem is the constitution and the rule of law really means absolutely nothing now. The difference now being it's all out in the open, obvious as proverbial dog's balls, requiring no apology instead openly celebrated by the Faux News echo chamber that is now America's premier state media apparatus.

    A life sentence for dog napping while the dog owner pleads for probation.

    When Roger get's pardoned, and the lefties all lose their doody and make ijits of themselves it will be played as another Trump win and will only help him get another round.

    But remember, Trumps a moron, or is it you.
    No matter how many times you make that stupid claim, Roger Stone is not going to prison for "dog napping". My post and the cited article give the 7 felonies he was convicted of.

    Stones action are not any worse than several democrats that have not received any prison time.

    Just some more obama holdovers leaving...its a good thing.
    Stone's actions amount to 7 felonies he was convicted of.

    How come these "several Democrats" aren't being prosecuted by Barr's DOJ?

    Then remove witness tampering.
    Nope, as already explained to you, that charge was amply supported by the evidence at trial, of which the threat regarding Credico's dog was a small part.

    What goes around, comes around.

    Y'all cheered when Hilary lied to the FBI, destroyed evidence, refused to turn over 33,000 email files requested by the FBI, and no charges were filed.

    fun fun fun, eh? Please don't lecture us about justice corruption.
    None of that actually happened except for no charges being filed.

    That false "whataboutism" has been discussed extensively on this Forum but if you want to have another go at it start an appropriate thread. It's off-topic here.

    So for the record you think that they should have called the police for the girl in school?

    I realize you adore and worship all Progressive types like Tardieu in Canada or the governor of Virginia who both got caught painting their faces black ONLY because they are politicians that put the hammer down on the rest of us.
    No, for the record, the story is madness, it’s an example not a rule, you’re discussing with yourself, you’re getting your bowels in an uproar about nothing and the whole shenanigans oozes fear and conspiracy.

    Get a fukking life.

    That’s for the record.

    Roger Stone is about to be sent to jail for the rest of his life as a political prisoner. This is about Trump not Roger Stone, they wanted dirt on Trump, any dirt, and when Stone did not comply he's to be made an example of: this is what we have the power to do. The dog napping aspect, or rather the threat of dog napping, which the dogs owner did not take seriously is the key here. No1 knows this and that's why he has to do the child foot stomping hands over ears thing.
    Roger Stone is being sent to prison for obstructing and lying to a Congressional investigation initiated by a Republican Congress.

    Calling him a "political prisoner" is absolutely ridiculous.
