    SMH Zelle is a disgrace. He stole those jeans from his roommate at the halfway house.

    Speaking of Uncle Zelle, someone has a vendetta against him. As much as we all may dislike him he is family. Someone snuck him a 40 and a gopro in the halfway house smh

    An interesting perspective on how the obstruction of justice probe of the president may very closely intersect with the 'collusion' aspect of the inquiry.
    Excerpt:
    The analysis that follows is lengthy and takes a number of twists and turns before laying out what I think is the significance of the whole thing. Here’s the bottom line: I believe that between today’s New York Times story and some other earlier material I have been sifting through and thinking about, we might be in a position to revisit the relationship between the “collusion” and obstruction components of the Mueller investigation. Specifically, I now believe they are far more integrated with one another than I previously understood.

    By Benjamin Wittes
    What if the Obstruction Was the Collusion? On the New York Times’s Latest Bombshell
    Shortly before the holidays, I received a call from New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt asking me to meet with him about some reporting he had done. Schmidt did not describe the subject until we met up, when he went over with me a portion of the congressional interview of former FBI General Counsel James Baker, who was then my Brookings colleague and remains my Lawfare colleague.

    When he shared what Baker had said, and when I thought about it over the next few days in conjunction with some other documents and statements, a question gelled in my mind. Observers of the Russia investigation have generally understood Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s work as focusing on at least two separate tracks: collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, on the one hand, and potential obstruction of justice by the president, on the other. But what if the obstruction was the collusion—or at least a part of it?

    Technology will continue to improve and costs will continue to decrease during the time it takes to build the border wall. There are already companies working on building human-carrying drones.

    He was using them as a blanket at the time.
    Good that Wittes has come around but only a few months ago he was regurgitating apologist bull**** in defense of Brett Kavanaugh:



    so **** him.

    In the midst of the US government being shutdown congress is voting on a bill against boycotting Israel. Between foreign powers and corporations our government is bought.

    I would urge to read economic articles from bipartisan think-tanks ...

    I am well aware of both the current maturity of drone technology as well as company timelines ... I can assure you, we are many, many years away from inexpensive drones picking up people ... For the simple fact these people wont want to be captured lol ... Without a stun or overwhelming neuro stimulator, they will never be effective ...

    In fact, the most effective technology I've seen to date as it relates to capturing human beings is integrated net projectiles ... This is and will almost certainly always be, illegal ... Be careful what you wish for when you would prefer drone technology ONLY utilized by the federal government to a fixed structure spanning our border ...

    I just don't have enough time to debunk this pile of BS.
    Besides the fact that lots of people weigh less than 150 lbs, there's also the fact that smuggling people is not exactly a mainstream activity. There is also a lot of history of technologies being developed for very specific purposes only to be adopted by a larger audience later on (like this internet we're on, or the GPS).

    You stay frauding though Mr P.E.

    Post them

    Post the ones from reputable bipartisan economic think-tanks that argue different levels of investing is the only cause of the racial wealth gap.

    You stay lying about economic research to peddle racist nonsense

    We are also many years away from a fully built wall, assuming that ever happens.

    Castro: When we want change, we work for it.

    Trump: Change risks those things you feel entitled to.
