        Every single time Watergate is mentioned in front of a Republican it should be mentioned that she was fired by her Democrat boss for lying. Wasn’t she also fired for stealing?

        • After Nixon resigned, Hillary Rodham was let go from the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment inquiry investigation, along with disbanding the rest of the staff that was no longer needed. She wasn’t fired for lying, stealing, or any other wrongdoing. Since Nixon had quit, the job was over, that’s all. She left DC immediately after, and went to Little Rock to move in with Bill. Those are the facts. Anything else is rumor unsupported by evidence.

          No, I’m not a Hillary supporter. I don’t like conspiracy theories either.

            Zeifman, her boss says he let her go and refused to give her a letter of recommendation and that was only one of three times that he ever did that. He said she was a liar and she hid evidence. I notice the typical left wing sources refute this with what I consider dishonest word play. Are there any Treepers that have researched this themselves? I don’t trust UrbanMyths, Snopes or the WaPo. I don’t like conspiracy theories myself and Hillary has enough bad deeds to last a Joshua Tree’s lifetime but I’m inclined to believe Zeifman as he’s a Democrat and I’d think he’d cut her a break if it was a close call.

            • Except that Jerry Zeifman was not her boss. He wouldn’t have had the power to fire her. She was on a separate team, working directly under Special Counsel John Doar. In any case, firing her would have had to be okayed by Peter Rodino, the chairman. Nobody got fired. Nobody went out of bounds. They disbanded the staff when Nixon resigned to avoid impeachment. Show me a document, and I’ll believe the opposite.

              I spent nearly the entire Watergate hearings stuck in the hospital. I didn’t understand all the legalese, but at least I knew who the players were. I watched it live, every day, for hours, stuck in bed. Some people are like that about Civil War stuff, or a particular TV series. For me, it’s Watergate, because of that experience.

              And I agree HRC has had a lot of misdeeds, but they all came after marrying Bill. She was not a notable part of the Watergate investigations, just a recent law grad doing the grunt work. She wouldn’t have been in a position to steal files or do the other nonsense I’ve heard. The lowest person on the totem pole doesn’t get that kind of unsupervised access.

                I agree with most of what you’ve said, but you lose me with the “but they all came after marrying Bill.”

                By all accounts, Hillary was power hungry and manipulative from the start. She saw Bill for exactly what he was (and still is) and still married him, because she saw that as her avenue to rise to power. She is as low class as they come and it truly astonishes me that so many people can’t see the forest through the trees with her. I’m so thankful that she did not win the Presidency.

                That said, by all objective accounts that I’ve read/heard, she was not “fired” from the Watergate team, though there were some misgivings about her actions.

        Exactly, Weeper.

        Let’s go to the news desk of “The Other Side”, broadcast nightly on the waning media outlet of your choice. Your humble correspondent, Kookie Maddtappberon, is conducting a round table discussion about Scenario #1: President Trump firing FBI Director, James Comey, almost immediately after being sworn in.

        Kookie: “This doesn’t look good for a president whose campaign, maybe he himself, is under investigation for colluding with Russia to win the presidency. The whole thing is bizarre, especially considering the Director has proven himself a man of honor and integrity in his testimonies before Congress and when he stood up about the lack of evidence that Secretary Clinton had any intent to jeopardize national security.

        “Don’t you think, Catty, that swiftly getting rid of the head of the agency investigating you, as Donald Trump has done, to put in your own appointee, is an admission of guilt…or at least, an admission that there’s something to hide? What exactly is he trying to hide?”

        Scenario #2: President Trump does not fire Director Comey after receiving recommendations to do so from Assistant AG, Rod Rosenstein and from AG Jeff Session.

        Kookie: “What more do we need? Remember that just last week, Secretary Clinton, once again, stated the timing and the speech Director Comey gave about the email server investigation…twice revealing investigation information, inappropriately…cost her the election. You all read the letters from Assistant AG Rosenstein, Comey’s boss, and AG Sessions, Trump’s own appointee. In it…(shuffles papers on desk, then waves a page)…Assistant AG Rosenstein quoted a bipartisan selection of previous AG’s and an Assistant AG clearly outlining Director Comey’s breaks with protocol and his usurpation of the AG’s authority and appointing himself court, jury and judge. (Slams paper to desk.)

        “Now that Trump has declined to terminate Comey from the directorship, doesn’t this open up a lot of questions that demand answers? If nothing else, there is obviously a reason…that benefits Trump…for him to refuse to take the AG’s recommendation when the Director plainly acted inappropriately and influenced the election. Has Trump now secured the results of the Bureau’s investigation into his campaign’s collusion with Russia?

        “I ask again, Representative Fodder, what more do we need? Isn’t the real question now, for how long and how much coordination was there between the Trump campaign, and maybe Trump himself, and Director Comey?”

        The ‘splodey heads are entertaining, but predictable. It didn’t matter what Trump did. ‘Splodey heads are gonna ‘splode.

        Senator Burr is one of my Senators and I called both his D.C. and local office, as well as sent an e-mail castigating him for defending Comey. I told his office that Director Comey has a long and well-documented history of being a “Criminal Fixer” for the Elites and Politicians and I was stunned he would come out and defend him. And, that frankly I hoped that former Director Comey actually ends up in prison himself.

        I also told him that Law and Order is one of the reasons that The American People elected President Trump, because we were sick to death of two sets of standards and that their so-called investigations were nothing but Kabuki Theater.

        The breakdown of the Rule of Law in America is one of the reasons for its continuing demise.

          Combs – I will read these sources because you have great sources when you post fact-filed and data-filled comments. Bigly.

          independent farmers – Do you tie this in with the movement to get independent farmers to utilize debt? I have carried out some preliminary analyses about the relation between single family farms, and the reliance on debt. This is very difficult – a host of factors make it difficult to explore whether there is a relation across time, say from 1947 as you note, or from the Fresno Drop of 1958, between credit obligations and the switch from single-family farms to corporate large farms.

          In the end, I believe that food production would have eventually move toward corporate farms since it is simply way more productive. This is an example of the economic principle that markets/ the economy simply keep morphing. But I suspect it was hastened in a specific direction by banks via debt, knowing that BigAgra would be the result.

I was aware of Germany, France and Israel.

    Rand Paul also slapped him around by saying that he trusts the DOJ over anonymous sources reporting that Comey asked for more funding for the witch-hunt 3 days ago. That bomb shell will destroy them even more because the truth will come out in tomorrow’s hearing when McCabe is questioned under oath about it.

It would enable foreign corporations from TPP states to make a claim against Australia based on the ISDS provisions in any other trade deal Australia has signed, no matter which country it was signed with. That means it does not matter how carefully the TPP is drafted: foreign investors can cherrypick another treaty Australia has signed, and sue the Australian government based on the provisions included in that treaty…..”

        China trade improves economy AND makes fight less likely
        When I was about ten years old, like many conservative middle-class families, our inclination was to resist anything to do with Red China. In that black and white world, you were either for us or against us. Trade with China was thought to be trade with the enemy. A funny thing happened, though, along the way. Many conservatives came to understand a larger truth. As trade began to blossom with China, many conservatives, myself included, came to admit that trade improves our economic well-being AND makes us less likely to fight. The success of trade with China made many conservatives rethink their view of the world. — Rand Paul

    McCabe, the second highest ranking FBI official, emphatically declared at the invite-only gathering with raised voice: “Fuck Flynn and then we Fuck Trump,” according to direct sources. Many of his top lieutenants applauded and cheered such rhetoric. A scattered few did not.

    All this drama… more popcorn needed.
    Such a pleasure to watch the collective minds of the DC Swamp critters go into hyperdrive over Comey and the hypocrisy therein. All this theatre leads back to the Clintons, any way you slice it. There will be more revelations coming to the surface soon enough. Making good on the promise to drain the swamp.

    One of the things that Rand Paul spoke of that I have not heard anywhere else is when everyone is asking why PT did not fire him right away: PT did not have the cabinet members of his choice in place and those that were in place would not have helped him. Congress slow-walked practically all of PT’s cabinet picks, most especially the AG and AAG!!!

    Rand Paul also points out that the Director of the FBI reports to the AAG, who in turn reports to the AG! See where I am going with this… We only just got the AAG recently!

    Things got going after the AAG was in place and then they followed protocol!!! That is why the timing is so special! To me, PT waited until he knew he had the right people in place and that by being patient, he got the results he wanted. Such a smart man is our PT!!!

      If you haven’t heard this anywhere else, you haven’t been reading all the comments here. We’ve been saying this repeatedly on every thread about this topic; every time someone complained that it “took too long,” BAM! Someone pointed this out.

      I’m glad Rand Paul brought it up, too!

    Good interview with RP. Big business including health care companies, hospitals etc,, are ripping off their own fellow Americans. I’m sure Trump and his team are open to many good solutions and they can all be used simultaneously to finally bring affordable health care choice to everyone.

    First time replying. Feel like you are all family!
    While I love the opposition’s heads exploding and learning about 3 and 4 D chess maneuvers, I just want to vent about something in the media.
    I was 8 years old during Watergate. I am so sick of hearing the accusations dragged out again and again every time
    people want to re-live or pretend to be going through some heyday. It’s old and stale.

    Don’t even get me started about Jackie O and Mr. President and the supposed Camelot.
    Thank you.
    P.s. Love the gifs and funny videos and all the open talk about prayer and the like.

    Rand doing a great job in stating clearly, until someone comes with evidence of a crime, this is all a bunch of hogwash and whining. Admittedly, I’m a big Rand Paul supporter and appreciate his balanced approach of, if there’s something there, let’s investigate it. If not, let’s get on to substantive issues that need to be addressed. There’s a lot to tackle in this country, this phony Russian issue is not one of them.

    Also, kudos to POTUS for speaking out and calling out Democrat hypocrisy today. It’s truly refreshing to have a President engaging with the public and calling out phony behavior. Just yesterday the left was calling for Comey’s head, today because THIS President cut him loose along with all the Democrats talking points for the next two years, they’re upset because the President handed them exactly what they wanted.
