These decisions today on making available to the DA of Manhattan, Cy Vance, a left-winger in absolute coordination and orchestration with the radical Dems on Capitol Hill can proceed with a subpoena of the accounting firm for the president and get his tax records, and the Supreme Court ruling at the same time Congress cannot.

I agree with him, it's completely insane that Congress can't get his records straight away, also.  The law is very clear.

//I never agree with Dobbs, but when he's partially right, well that's as close as he gets.

Lou Dobbs craps in his diapers... Pay him no mind.
 
2020-07-10 8:00:10 AM  
I would compare Dobbs to North Korean state TV, but I think that North Korean state TV is a bit more likely to criticize Kim Jong Un than Crazy Ol' Man Dobbs is to criticize Trump.

Can somebody shovel Lou into the same retirement home prison they shove Donnie into so they can murder each other?

If you realize deep state means competence and ethics, that's right.
 
2020-07-10 8:10:40 AM  
"The deep state extends, obviously, to the Supreme Court,"

Yeah guys, it's obvious. Thankfully this cabal of people that controls every aspect of American life from the shadows is powerless to silence Lou Dobbs.

What even IS the deep state? At this point it just seems to be an amorphous bogeyman they blame for everything, I'm sure they'll be blaming the deep state for bad harvests and solar eclipses next.

Same as obamagate.  If you don't know what it is then you're part of it.

Fox News pundit says something stupid, this is newsworthy!  If they don't get their way, tantrum time.

Also, are we about to get four more Cuckface Carlson links today or do we get a break?

a left-winger in absolute coordination and orchestration with the radical Dems

Left-wingers and radical Dems couldn't orchestrate a pizza order.  Someone would request an impure topping and they'd spend the next hour accusing one another of being secret Republicans.

"but but but the SCOTUS didn't do what I wanted them to do, so they are doodie heads!!"

It's yet another useful idea that the right coopted and completely bastardized.  Like Fake News.
 
2020-07-10 8:20:37 AM  
Oh, please, they did their job, they made sure there was no way Trump's taxes would see the light of day before the election.  Trump voters can continue to go the the polls with the certain ignorance that Trump is the most successful businessman ever, believe me.
 
2020-07-10 8:20:44 AM  
At least they're basically admitting the deep state isn't actually a thing and is basically shorthand for "anyone who opposes the will of the god emperor", just in case there were any questions about how genuine they were.
 
2020-07-10 8:20:51 AM  
No-Law Trumpers are everywhere. Particularly in the media.

Another name for "supporters of the Rule of Law".

Go look for a counterexample from usage by a Republican or other "conservative" from the past four years.
 
2020-07-10 8:21:27 AM  
I cringe at the idea of calling any member of SCOTUS as a Republican member, or a Democratic member.

Roberts is trying to maintain the fig leaf, but the Republicans keep yanking at it.  He'd give them everything, if they would just give him some cover to do it.
 
2020-07-10 8:25:16 AM  
At this point, when the deep state has penetrated that many parts of the state, that's called "the will of the people".

It's funny how the Republicans go on about how incompetent the Democrats are at running government except for running a massive secret Conspiracy group that runs everything.

I mean, here's the thing: Trump is probably being far more directly advised by Dobbs, Carlson, Hannity, and the rest of that Fox News derposphere than his actual advisors.  I think knowing what they're telling him is really useful to know to try to guess what insanity is coming out of this dumpster fire of an administration going forward.

Kudos for the stealth advertising.  No one will ever know.

Before 1980, we pumped the likes of Lou Dobbs full of Thorazine and put him away.  Since 1980, they give them a bully pulpit, a political appointment, or some cardboard and magic markers.
 
2020-07-10 8:32:37 AM  
Republicans still can't explain, if the deep state actually exists, how Trump was even elected, and how the GOP has control of the Senate.   But yeah, the deep state is running everything.
 
2020-07-10 8:36:11 AM  
Inasmuch as "The Deep State" is the normal functions of government, yeah. To borrow from Heinlein, "the roads must roll."

Sorry that you hate a functional government, jackass. Sucks to have checks and balances, but hey, if you want we can book you to that Libertarian paradise city that's falling apart at the seams...

It's basically anyone who has been in government since before Trump, and values the survival of the union over Trump's personal interests. Oh, and apparently Trump's two Supreme Court appointees also.

"Who the hell is this Justice Department to say it takes this long to do a damn investigation? They have killed every investigation, killed every opportunity at getting to the truth, and we're damn fools to put up with it, in my judgment."

For a second there I thought they were interviewing Adam Schiff.

/every accusation is a confession.
//Dobbs needs to Deep Six his career - he's basically Info Wars or The National Enquirer from the 80s at this point.

I was assured that the Justices of the Supreme Court are judges first, and partisan asshats seconds.  Is Lou saying otherwise?  That's quite shocking, but then again Lou Dobbs is an exceptionally stupid man.
 
2020-07-10 8:47:44 AM  
Maybe, "deep state" is just a term for government employees actually doing their jobs.

So what?  Lou Dobbs also believes that his toaster is possessed by the spirit of Strom Thurmond.
 
2020-07-10 9:00:06 AM  
The deep state are people who know how the system works and manipulate it into their favor.  Like the scheduling clerk who can schedule the vote at a town meeting so it comes at the end when most people have left and it's only him and his cronies.  Or the powerful lobbyist who gives to both sides to help glide their pet legislation through.
 
2020-07-10 9:02:10 AM  
Lou Dobbs is what I imagine a kitchen garbage disposal brought to life would be like.
 
2020-07-10 9:03:33 AM  
That's right republicans. It doesn't matter who is president. The supreme court will always be controlled by the deep state and the gay agenda. Six of the nine justices are actually gay. So there's no point to voting for Trump just to get new court appointments.
 
2020-07-10 9:07:04 AM  
There are people on this very site who think Dobbs has intelligent things to say.

Yeah that cute clerk at the grocery store who told me the day they get new paper products delivered is part of Deep Grocery.

It terrifies me that you are 100% correct.

Dobbs looks like a wax statue of himself that's been doused in Grecian Formula.
