I like baseball for analogies.
Their rules are tried and true with no significant rule chaOn January 11, 1973,the owners of America’s 24 major league baseball teams vote to allow teams in the American League (AL) to use a “designated pinch-hitter” that could bat for the pitcher, while still allowing the pitcher to stay in the game.
This took the fun out of the game for purists like myself who enjoyed playing arm chair manager.
It allowed those who could still hit to be part time players swinging their bats only.
It also prevented promising talent in the minor leagues from being called up to the “Bigs.”
Something like this should be brought into play for older members of Congress who can’t get the job done they were elected to do.
That would of course include the majority of them.
An interesting interview that for some reason can’t find its way over to Fox news but is relegated to Fox Business.
Toensing was on Fox News last week and was given less than three minutes then the usual hard break.
The screw is starting to turn and just hope the Memo gets out pronto.
BREAKING: FBI Confirms Memo Is 100% Factual.
Via FOX NEWS:
Two senior FBI officials have now reviewed a controversial Republican staff memo alleging abuses of government surveillance programs during the 2016 presidential campaign, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News – adding that the officials “could not point to any factual inaccuracies.”
The two officials – one from the bureau’s counterintelligence division and the other from the legal division, followed up after an initial review of the memo during a rare Sunday trip to Capitol Hill by FBI Director Christopher Wray.
It should be noted that after Director Wray reviewed the memo on Sunday, he had Deputy Director McCabe packing.
With so many alleged crooks and criminals running around we are going to need a baseball score card to know who they all are.
Former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova and his partner and wife Victoria Toensing joined Lou Dobbs on Tuesday to discuss the growing Deep State scandal to protect Hillary Clinton and destroy candidate and President Donald Trump.
During last night’s s segment Joe DiGenova dropped another bomb on former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe.
Joe diGenova: There’s going to be resolution.
The memo from the House Intelligence Committee will be the start.
Next will come the inspector general’s report from the Department of Justice which will devastating.
Because it will show Andrew McCabe made FBI agents fabricate evidence to exonerate Hillary Clinton and then there’s going to be a federal grand jury to investigate the Obama administration’s senior Department of Justice officials and the senior members of the FBI.
On the designated hitter rule.
nges since the American League went to the “Designated Hitter Rule.”
Frank Edward Thomas Jr. (born May 27, 1968), nicknamed “The Big Hurt, was an American former first baseman in Major League Baseball who played for three American League (AL) teams from 1990 to 2008, all but the last three years with the Chicago White Sox.
One of the most fearsome and devastating hitters of his era, he is the only player in major league history to have seven consecutive seasons (1991–1997) with a .300 batting average and at least 100 runs batted in (RBI), 100 runs scored, 100 walks and 20 home runs; over that period, he batted .330 and averaged 36 home runs and 118 RBI per year.
A perennial MVP candidate through the 1990s, he was named the AL’s Most Valuable Player by unanimous vote in 1993 after becoming the first White Sox player to hit 40 home runs, leading the team to a division title; he repeated as MVP in the strike-shortened 1994 season after batting .353 and leading the league in slugging average and runs.
After two subpar seasons, he lost the MVP in a close vote in 2000 after posting career highs of 43 home runs and 143 RBI, also earning AL Comeback Player of the Year honors, as Chicago finished with the AL’s best record.
