Alabama has a similar law. I have a USB voice recorder that I carry with me. It's sensitive enough to clearly record voices even through a denim pocket. One touch from a finger in my pocket and I'm recording.

As long as I am part of a conversation, I can legally record what is said and it is admissible in court. I do not even have to be talking (although I usually say something just to avoid questions later) as long as the other parties are aware that I am listening in to take part.

The part about leaving the room is actually a gray area. If I head to the rest room for 2 minutes, did I leave the conversation? I have heard arguments both ways. Of course, that doesn't apply to me since I rarely take my pants off to leave for the restroom, lol.

IMO, anyone who does not record conversations that could be misinterpreted (or outright lied about) later is gambling with their lives for no gain. Such is the world we live in.

Check and fold are two different things in Poker..

Not after a raise. You raise, call, or fold.

Checking is not even a choice in actual poker... it is an often-added option when no bet has been made for people who are scared to play the real game.

I did chuckle at that - somebody doesn't know how to play poker!

Agreed, wholeheartedly.

Nor, in the White House....and they DON'T, but should know it.


Collusion, propagandizing and rumor-mongering have been a staple in the political diet for thousands of years. That won't change. It does not give the media a free pass to disgrace their profession on a daily basis.


Yet, it gives The White House and (by your mindset) all politicians a free pass to disgrace their profession (and our well-being as a country) on a daily basis? I thought you were above hypocrisy.


Lol, I am not sure I have ever claimed that politicians are anything but a disgrace. Left and right.
When that changes let me know.
Still doesn't excuse the current behaviour of journalists.


That's actually true, I apologize. You've been equally as distrustful with respect to politicians as journalism. And no, it does not excuse their behavior either.

You can try over and over again, to explain, but the problem is that those that do not want to listen will never listen.

Anything Trump say, is always twisted for maximum ratings by the media.

I got my take on the tweets and so far I see the mockery and insinuations behind them, Trump is playing the media and anybody that hates him like a puppet master.

So sad, that people do not want to see what is going on, no matter how ugly has become.

The insults here in ATS are getting out of control all because politics and those that seems to be posting for the purpose to cause anger.

I don't like it.

In theory, the media's existence is to alert the public to the misdeeds of politicians and government. This stopped working when the majority of America's press became beholden to only 5 major corporate conglomerates, all run by ultrawealthy partisan benefactors. The simple fact is that the crimes and lies of individual politicians are only reported on by the mainstream media when those crimes and lies run afoul of the establishment's official narrative. The narrative is usually a lie to begin with, yet it is always presented as unquestioned truth by the media... whereas any politician who butts heads with the establishment can be certain that they will fall victim to smears from the MSM intended to either ramrod them back into the establishment narrative or destroy their credibility to ensure the average citizen views them poorly.

Good luck... It is most likely communications covered under executive privilege.

Democrats seem to forget they are only a co equal branch of government.

Ha, ha, I am sure that in a few more hours the Nixon comparison will feed the masses once again.

Like a puppet master.

Is good when I have the time to get amused by what is going on.

Hell we need this change in the political spectrum of screwing the nation behind the voters back while playing nice and proper on TV.

I love when Trump just gives a finger to all the snakes in the swamp.

You know, sometimes Trump will tweet something or say something that makes me think '''"oops, did he really say that". Then I see the reaction in the media and I just smile. It's great to see. There has rarely been a President with the courage of conviction that Trump has. For all his faults, no one can deny him that.

Trey Gowdy is on Trump's list for FBI Director...





Full short list

Ray Kelly, the former and longest-serving New York City police commissioner
Mike Rogers, former House Intelligence Committee chairman and former FBI agent
Former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas
Paul Abbate, executive assistant director for the Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch
Associate Judge of New York Court of Appeals Mike Garcia
Mayor of Colorado Springs John Suthers
Former federal appellate court Judge Michael Luttig, now executive vice president of Boeing
Larry Thompson, former deputy attorney general under President George W. Bush
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe

I think McCabe is on the list for show only - cant see him having any chance.

This interesting, so far this what is been circulated in the net about the tapes.

Actual Tweet, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” the commander-in-chief tweeted Friday morning.

President Trump issued a veiled threat Friday to James Comey — telling the ousted FBI director that he’d better hope there are no recordings of their conversations.

I'm surprised there is not a thread about this President Trump could be taping everybody he talks to. Everywhere he goes. Not like the old fashioned Nixon Watergate tapes though.

I think Obama left the wiretapping book in the desk drawer of the Oval Office and president Trump took an immediate liking to it.

I hope he has, the Nixon tapes are fascinating.
