    Is there a place to follow the trouble between the Trump supporters and the Antifa riots in Berkeley today. I saw some of it being followed by MiloNews.

    VIDEO: Trump supporter beaten with skateboard by agitators at Berkeley rally

    Donald Trump supporters and a collection of communists and anarchists clashed in Berkeley, California today, and Trump’s supporters seemed to bear the brunt of the attacks.

    Numerous videos show Trump supporters being beaten in the streets as police failed to keep the two sides apart.

    Trump’s reelection campaign raised $13.2 million in first quarter
    04/15/17

    President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is off to a quick start, pulling in $13.2 million through a trio of committees in the first three months of the year, while paying an unusually large staff of about 20 employees, according to records filed Friday evening with the Federal Election Commission.

    Nearly 80 percent of the cash raised by the three committees — Donald J. Trump for President, Trump Victory, and Trump Make America Great Again Committee — came from small donors…

      If it ever happens, and I am doubtful that it will, it will only be after Sessions is sure that he has a rock solid case against her. He knows full well that it will not be as much a legal battle as a political battle. And he also knows that it will cost a huge amount of political capital if they do it. Unfortunately these things aren’t decided based on right and wrong, they’re decided based on politics. And even someone as good as Trump is at handling things has to weigh the political cost and whether its worth jeopardizing much of his agenda for America. For Sessions to charge her will come only as the result of many, many hours of discussion, analysis, and prayer.

      I took a stab at it. In retrospect one has to wonder if they have ears to listen or eyes to see anyway for the record here is what I wrote in reference to the Weiner article.

      This is the worst piece of shinnola I have ever seen Breitbart publish and there has been a lot of gas passing as journalism here lately. Apparently Trump is planning something the Mercers don’t like TOO BAD. You are asking a man to disavow his family because you think his family will have to much impact on him. DUHHH. His family is who he is you numb nuts Just like your family is who you are.

      Personally I don’t take orders from my 30 something children show of hands who does please…. I thought not. I do listen to them for there take on things but that’s all. Trumps kids are not Svengali s They do not control the man you supposedly voted for.

      Have the world and 90 percent of New York and Washington are democrats . If you want a high powered media consultant they are not living in red states. I’m sure Donald will keep them away from the nuclear codes so just step off.

      Breitbart use to be the home of Andrew and Milo. It is quickly becoming the land of failed never trump trolls. Andrew built an empire, and a bridge to an empowered electorate you are about to watch that bridge crumble and be washed away along with the trolls who have taken up residence here under that bridge.

      I am sure at this point Andrew would have set a match to it and walked away and started over.

        It’s a standoff because the jivanka protestors aren’t going to change either. The real question is how many of the jivanka crowd voted for Trump before jivanka became an issue, and can those voters be replaced? I think he can if there are enough moderate Democrats who are fed up with the far left turn of the Democrats.

    The report added that Modi’s visit will “be an open acknowledgment of India’s close ties with Israel, and also pave the way for the transfer of high-end agricultural technologies that will benefit Indian farmers.”

    Ahead of Modi’s trip, Indian Foreign Secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar will visit Israel in May. Notably, Modi will not visit the Palestinian territories in July; instead, PA President Mahmoud Abbas will visit India this spring. The Indian government has said it believes the prime minister’s standalone visit to Israel will further “underline the significance of India’s special ties with the Jewish nation.”

Soon, parents will stop sending their kids there, the university will lose it’s funding and property values will plummet.

That’s what a common sense person does it, You get a expert who knows the subject and delegate the job to them and have them report to you on and potential changes. It’s when people get int to things they know nothing about and attempt to be “pors” is when issues arise. I don’t get that feeling with Tax returns and healthcare when it comes to the president.

      Lifelong Democrats voted for Trump and helped us win. I’m on reddit the Donald. Many liberals and progressives voted for Trump. Trump shared policy positions with socialist Bernie. Republicans supported Hillary. Some Republicans were vocal Never Trumpers. Party labels, as Trump said, mean nothing. They are a splinter strategy to divide the MAGA coalition. Anyone who loves America, wants it to be a sovereign nation, wants prosperity and safety and educational opportunities for all Americans, who wants freedom to be a unique individual are welcome. Period. Combining our perspectives and concerns makes us better. Echo chambers are ultimately un American.

    Bill Mitchell falls for the anti-Bannon meme the left, media, and neocons are pushing, then Paul Nehlen calls him out for it and Bill Mitchell blocks Nehlen on Twitter:

    Mitchell is even quoting the NY Times now to make his “case”.

    Did Bill bump his head or something? Has he suddenly gone stupid and forgot the whole game the opposition is playing?

    It goes like this:

    – Pick a member of Trump team.
    – Isolate them and spin them being a negative force influencing Trump.
    – Claim Trump is “distancing himself” from them.
    – Try to force Trump to let them go.

    Idiots falling for this are idiots. It is the opposition that are the negative force, not the people Trump CHOSE to surround himself with. I guarantee Trump knows who is what on his team and has plans for them one way or the other. Forget the media and the Neocons and the left. Their chatter is poison. It is meant to sow doubt in your hearts.

    Bill Mitchell let that happen to him. Don’t be like that guy. Stay strong and trust Trump. If Bannon is bad news, Trump already knows it. He isn’t stupid.

    Marine Le Pen’s general election hopes could be in peril after it was revealed 500,000 voters outside of France were sent duplicate polling cards – giving a traditionally non-right wing electorate the chance to vote twice.
    Because Le Pen’s Front National party appeals to a conservative, domestic community the computer error could potentially see the politicians first round vote overshadowed by pro-EU double-voters.
    French authorities confirmed they would not be investigating the potential electoral fraud until after the election, when retrospective prosecution may take place.

    I found this excerpt online about North Korea’s dynasty:

    North Korea’s ruling dynasty has always cast itself as somewhat supernatural. Founder Kim II Sun was known as Korea’s “sun,” and claimed control of the weather. His birth was hailed as “heaven sent” by propagandists, and state media has often touted impossible feats: He scored a perfect 300 the first time he tried bowling, and shot five holes-in-one the first time he played golf. Upon his death in 2011, the skies about the sacred mountain Paektu in North Korea allegedly glowed red (maybe because hell was opening up for the guy!).

    Okay, this is too much…on the eve of Easter while we celebrate our salvation through Jesus’ victory, North Korea is celebrating some dead guy who claims to be deity that can bowl a 300?

    The world is lost!
