    Director Comey, even though you hate the New England Patriots and hope they lose, no matter who they’re playing, is there anything at all possible that you could do to help make that happen??
    No. Nor did the Russians. End of hearing. Done.

    Comey is not a patriot. Somebody owns him. He needs to be fired. The IC are surveilling the opposition and then leaking for political purposes. It will not stop until they bring down the Trump administration by creating a constitutional crisis. Flynn was an easy take down because they had the NSA tape and transcripts (never released) of his call with the Russian ambassador and it fit the six month meme by the Dems and the MSM that the Russians were hacking the election. Those claims were vindicated when Trump fired him. That was like an admission of guilt. What is really disturbing is Trumps weak response to this investigation. Now Comey is saying there was no taps on the Whitehouse telecom. How then did the tapes of Trumps conversations with the Japanese and Australians get recorded and leaked?

    • I can’t find it now, but Comey’s statement on wiretapping was very vague and he did not say he was not surveilled(sp) in any way…no, it was a weasel answer.

    • Joe Knuckles says:

      You are correct, as no law was violated. Nobody has even asked Comey what crime he was investigating. That should be the very first question. Then he should be asked to cite the specific law that was alleged to have been violated. If he can’t, then all he is doing is opposition research for the Democrats.

    Judiciary Jerks

    The Senate Judiciary Committee
    Holds confirmation hearings today
    To question and probe a candidate
    For Supreme Court Associate Judge.

    The committee chairman, Senator Bullcrap,
    Rises to speak in his pompous way,
    And spends his allotted time complaining
    About obstructions and many delays.

    The ranking member, Senator Blowsmoke,
    Spends his whole time lying about Trump.
    No matter what Trump will do or say,
    He always gets portrayed as a chump.

    Now Senator Bilgewater takes the floor
    To explain how he, first above all,
    Loves the law and justice and order,
    But is fully against Trump and his wall.

    Senator Blarney, still wearing his green,
    Spoke to his friends on Boston’s South Shore,
    All maudlin about his beloved Emerald Isle,
    Toppling, at the last, quietly to the floor.

    Senator s Babble, Blither and Blather
    Spoke after each other, 1, 2, 3,
    Taking turns, bragging and complaining,
    But nothing about the judiciary.

    And so it went on, and on, and on
    As each of the windbags had his say.
    Until the session was gaveled to close,
    . . . and we’d hear from Judge Gorsuch another day.

      I don’t disagree with him, but again note that there’s no actionable evidence referenced in the piece.

      Trump WILL not win the media battle. For obvious reasons. Politicians react to the media battle, and they WILL comply with its edicts, as they are now doing. Unless Trump can secure hard evidence of criminal activities by his political opponents and have them arrested — something he’d need to IC to support, which they won’t — he cannot govern. This is the painful truth.

      If Trump lacks actionable evidence, he can only rely on the Deplorables to support him. Except through voting, Deplorables can only supply material support by their physical presence and its threat to opposition political institutions. Figure it out from there.

I only call them “mainstream” because the general public go to them for news. And therefore get indoctrinated. You cannot believe how many of my co-workers think Trump is corrupt , a liar…when I challenge them on it, they point to the MSM. Only the Rebel news in Canada is pointing out the reality, …

          ..it really is up to you delightful and dear “Deplorables” …I am still amazed by the election results…you did it, and I hope you can do it again in your support for the President.

            As a Canadian, I am sickened by the Canadian news. It is true that even here in Canada we are criticized if we try to set the record straight regarding the very biased news. That is why we have set up a private group that meets regularly. All of have experienced a similar reaction from people that we are somehow racist, uninformed or just plain stupid for attempting to clarify biased reports.
            I have no confidence that the attacks on Trump will abate.

            Scary stuff!
            Police stand down while Trump supporters are attacked.
            States/ cities/ universities / schools refusing to enforce/ recognize or abide by immigration laws
            free speech being shut down
            24 hour news coverage attacking President Trump, his family and associates
            a handful of people own the media – print and tv
            Executive Orders being struck down by non elected judges
            Leaks of phone call with other heads of state

            Notice that all of these groups: judges, governors, mayors, police officials, media, universities are all in the position of power. Trump is in a very dangerous swamp.

            It may seem that all President Trump has are the American people. That is not true! Many people from all over the world are praying for your country and your president!

            He is going to need the prayers of eveyone to withstand this continuing battering. It is my firm belief that if he fails, we are all doomed!!

              I honestly think that God was working through the “the forgotten people” – who turned out in droves to vote for President Trump. I’ve posted this video link before on TCT , but I think it is worthwhile to post it again… it is a bit long, but gives me comfort, and I hope it may give comfort to those who are posting here too. The President and all who voted for him must not give up and quit: the stakes are too high.

            Comey didn’t feed the Dems on their attempts to make a “final” determination on the issue of President Trump pointing the finger at Obama. All he could say is, nothing at the FBI on that.

            They’ll be more fibbing but this didn’t help the Democrats at all. They are going to make noise and the media will follow similarly setting up a larger fall.

            This is beyond dumb. These people are not good at poker. President Trump has aces up his sleeve and if that’s not clear; well then people have not paid attention.

  22. Also, why would the Russian activity be so obvious it was almost like they wanted to be discovered and Comey would not think that was suspicious? Like why would they want to be discovered unless they were not doing it and/or the intel were doing it under the guise of Russia and wanted to be discovered. Comey is leaving information out there, but the Republicans are too stupid to follow up on it.

    I watched most of the hearing and my takeaway, as awful as it is, is the Deep State won.

    They’ve put, on record, that there is an ONGOING investigation into Trump and his campaign re collusion with Russia.

    That is what the presstitutes will run with and since there is no time frame for completing the investigation it will go on until 2020 or until they manage to impeach Trump.

    That was the plan all along.

    Today, at the gym, I spoke to a guy with a nephew in the FBI who told him the IC is out to destroy Trump.

      I might be a bit biased but it was clear Comey is an idiot and looked like a fool. 2 major points – He couldn’t even identify how many in HIS FBI organization had access to unmask the identity of Flynn, And He refused to say he would pursue the law breaking leaker(s). That is the what I got out of it anyway. And I agree, it was clear the IC is out to get Trump but that doesn’t mean they can. I am hopeful that the swamp will be drained. Just a trickle now but could be a large pull of the plug in the near term.

    When I was in the Philippines a few years ago, I was amazed that they had cock fighting on TV and it looked like it could have been ESPN! It was not ESPN, obviously, but it was broadcast as an official event. Here I was watching in HD 1080, actual cock fights with their statistics being listed alongside! I also noticed an entire market to feed your cocks with food meant to boost the birds strength and stamina. The products were being sold virtually everywhere and reminded me of weight lifter’s protein shakes, etc. It’s a different world, that’s for dang sure. I can only imagine that it’s legal in Mexico as well. I don’t support the sport, it’s animal cruelty but for them to be so brazen as to setup in an American city, the money generated is the only explanation. 50 more for the bus across the border!

    My cartoon was not designed to excuse what Kristian Saucier did. Whether he did it absent-mindedly or intentionally is beside the point. He broke the law and went to a military prison. The point of the cartoon is Hillary broke the law and her acts were far more damaging. And yet she gets away with it and is now contemplating her next run for the presidency. Why did she get away with it? Because she’s well connected to the CIA/CFR/Illuminati deep state that wants here there, that’s why. In effect, she has blanket pardon for whatever crime she wants to commit.

    Not so with the little guy. Saucier is paying a price for his actions. If he was a young John McCain—a son of a powerful admiral—would he be behind bars right now? Of course not!
