      He is such a fighter and does not play the usual role of soft, roll over GOP. Hold them accountable, call them out and “punch” through the media narrative, President Trump! Give ’em hell and don’t let up!

      What’s funny is that, in an effort to smear Trump, people are complaining about Comey getting fired, but all they are doing is getting Comey badmouthed even more.

    So let me get this straight …. President Trump can appoint an interim director of the FBI without senate confirmation ….. so, I would appoint Rudy Giuliani as interim which would scare the crap out of all the demonrats and uniparty scum so badly that whoever I put up for confirmation (my pick would be Sheriff Clarke) would sail right thru;) LOL…. I love my President! God bless President Donald J. Trump:)


    • BakoCarl says:

      Sherrif Clarke is a really great guy. Tops of my list as the best in the west! Would he do better as FBI head or something like Director of Field Operations? More hands-on.

    CNN’s 1,600-word report on the lobbying firm’s new filing, though thorough and detailed, failed to note Tony Podesta’s involvement in fundraising for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. It also did not mention that the Podesta Group was co-founded by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

    Tony Podesta, current chairman of the firm, was a bundler for Clinton’s campaign. By July of 2016 alone, Podesta had raised $268,000 for the campaign and $31,000 for the Hillary Victory Fund. Clinton’s campaign website lists him among its “Hillblazers,” described as “individuals who have contributed and/or raised $100,000 or more for Hillary for America, the Hillary Victory Fund, and/or the Hillary Action Fund” since the campaign’s launch.

    Given that he was lobbying the State Department under her tenure, that information is obviously relevant.

    In its April 2017 filing with the Justice Department, which included supplements for five periods from 2012 to 2014, the Podesta Group included a “note” before each of those supplements warning that the “names and offices of individuals contacted and the means of contact” are incomplete in some instances because “those details are not in the firm’s timekeeping records.”

    A strange incident at Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx occurred wherein vandals used a chainsaw to cut down four 30-foot-tall trees, officials confirmed Wednesday.

    BREAKING: #ComeyFiring Is Warning To Anti-Trump @SenJohnMcCain, Was Kept Secret From @Reince To Stop Leaking

    President Donald J. Trump fired now-former FBI Director James Comey to send a message to Senator John McCain, sources close to the White House confirm. Comey’s firing is a direct rebuke to McCain’s control over the nation’s defense, White House staffers confirm.

    Earlier this year, McCain went after Trump with widely discredited opposition research that he immediately shared with Comey, his longtime friend.

    Comey worked with McCain to go after businessman Jack Abramoff after Abramoff stopped McCain from winning the Republican Primary in 2000.

    McCain has since been working with FBI Director Comey to help undermine President Trump since Trump was elected.

    There’s a method to McCain’s madness, as McCain has used his position as chairman on the U.S. Senate Armed Services to veto Trump’s national defense picks.

    “McCain has shot down two offers for Army Secretary from Trump,” our source notes.
    McCain has been a persistent nuisance ever since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015.

    The FBI firing move, which did not leak, was carried out by White House counsel Don McGahn and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. President Trump deliberately kept Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer in the dark to keep them from leaking.

    McCain was keeping alive the faux Russia investigation to hurt Trump.

    Stay tuned for more.

    “Increasingly difficult to wake up overseas to news from home, knowing I will spend today explaining our democracy and institutions,” Dana Shell Smith wrote on Twitter late Tuesday.

    Smith, a career diplomat, was nominated to the ambassadorship in 2014 and confirmed the same year. Federal Election Commission records show she donated $1,000 on eight separate occasions to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

    She also recently expressed support for former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates.

    Smith shared a tweet from another State Department official praising Yates for her testimony before the Senate earlier this week. Yates was fired by Trump in late January for refusing to comply with an executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.

    Reading Ann coulters new piece it occurs to me maybe a very simple solution to all the migrant crime. Since our rulers deem us fodder for their agenda, why not leave it to public opinion. Publish all the perpetrators personal info in a conspicuous sight. Full name, of course address, family members, in case they hide after public court gets the case. The pendulum needs to swing the other way.
    Justice is not blind in our country anymore , and that is one of the basic threads in the fabric of a civil society.

      That makes three (Shiva Ayyadurai and Allen Waters) in the race now on the republican side. And there is no such thing as easy win for republicans in Massachusetts.

    Friends, I’m sorry to say but after watching Tucker Carlson and that African American woman go at it about race relations it’s all over. The fact that she could say the crap she was saying so calmly with that smile on her face is more chilling than listening to rambling lunatic. Bad things are not coming, they are here.
