      There is objective evidence that the Obama Birth Certificate is a fake. There is zero evidence that Trump has done any crime at all. And yet somehow there is a special counsel appointed to investigate….just in case. All in less than 4 months.

        With 44 months to go in his term in office, we all better realize that this is just the beginning. These people aren’t going to stop anytime soon. They are fighting for their power and to retain trillions of dollars for their globalist masters. The election was the first battle, now we’re really getting into what will be a long, hard fought war.

          This is all a plot that began on November 8 last year. The first part was to prevent inauguration somehow. It failed. The second part is to impeach somehow. It is in progress. That is the goal of all the schemes. Now the plan is to simply thwart the agenda until they can get rid of him. Our mission is to stop them. He is being undermined from within and without. I would bet the black brigades will be in the streets this summer over something or other too. They have been awful quiet. The ball is being carried by the criminals in the MSM right now.

          It seems that a super-key battlefront is ensuring no Dems win any new seats in the Senate and House. We know the Dems/globalists will try impeach if they can.

    A word about Trump’s WH Team, including Cabinet. He picked them. He is the EXECUTIVE. For more than 30 years this has been his home run zone. He is the brightest and most capable executive we have seen in Thirty Years. And even unlike REAGAN, Trump did not even pick his VP based on “deals” with GOPe. His ONLY considerations are those that will benefit working AMERICANS, including our safety.

    So all of the GENIUSES that issue commentary on social media, or even in this very intelligent CTH community, that register impatience or even opposition to the Presidents chosen WH TEAM or strategies — you are all well within you “rights” to do so. But as Bill Mitchell says, “If your keen insight becomes LEFTIST quotes, maybe its time to rethink”…., and your arguments become food for ENEMIES of our country, then you might want to think carefully about the nature of the war we are in for our very survival and freedom. Average AMERICAN CITIZENS do not consider ourselves geniuses, or insiders, or even capable of comprehending the complexities of governing a 300 Million person nation. But the election showed this — we LOVE OUR PRESIDENT, and we RESENT enemies, and are maybe even more annoyed with “friends” that act like SMARTY PANTS by condescending opinions about our TRUE genius and PATRIOT in the White House.

    So go ahead, strut your stuff, and “critique” away. Just remember that “The Boys of Point Du Hoc” didn’t start shit talking about General Eisenhower halfway up the cliff.

    To those “decrying” the U.S. “attack” on Syrian Forces yesterday – looking at you, Buzzfeed Very Fake News.

    The Syrian Army was inside a previously agreed-upon “deconfliction zone” established by U.S. and Russia.

    The Syrian Army was advancing on U.S. and coalition forces. The Syrian Forces were notified, warned, told outright, and still continued to advance.

    Our POTUS is not Barack Obama. Our POTUS is Donald Trump. Our POTUS and Our SecDef Gen Mattis do not play. Neither do they bluff.

    Believe it.

    Excerpt from email received today from Aimee Herd (editor of Christian prophecy newsletter Elijah List and Breaking Christian news) titled: “”In the Face of Political Confusion and Opposition in America – Here’s a Word of Encouragement”

    “This has been a week of swirling political allegations and accusations by the media against President Donald Trump; to the point of nausea.
    And for those of us who had hoped the rabid, divisive voices—who’d condemned Trump from his first moments in office—would quiet and give our Commander in Chief a chance, it’s particularly frustrating.
    The fact that our current President differs so greatly from his predecessor concerning matters important to Christians is, I believe, the main reason the ‘powers and principalities’ are trying so desperately to take him down.

    Fellow Believers, who appreciate the important advances for the lives of unborn children and mothers, and religious freedom, made possible by this administration, must NOT lose heart!
    The intensifying darkness of the liberal and media hostility toward President Trump should cause us to pray MORE—not less—for his safety and success, and that of his family and entire team.
    God—through President Trump—is draining the DC swamp, and it doesn’t want to be drained!

    So, the next time you’re watching the news and it seems to sap every ounce of your joy; pray harder—for the affecting situation, and for the strength, safety and wisdom of our President.”

    Trump is losing the political/cultural/media war. I’m sorry to say it, and by no means does it mean he needs to continue to lose or that he couldn’t reverse this condition of losing almost overnight. But for some reason he cannot — or has not yet — resolved to fight the media and the cultural mavens that his followers DESPERATELY wants him to fight.

    You cannot be standing at a press conference four months into your presidency and accept a question from a reporter about whether you have committed crimes worthy of impeachment and allow the reporter to get away with it and be winning. You cannot allow a special counsel to be appointed four months into your presidency over transparently false charges with zero basis in evidentiary fact (and when your party controls both houses of congress) and be winning.

    I’m tired of hearing about Sun Tzu and 4D chess. You cannot win a war you won’t fight. God bless Trump for taking the actions he’s taken to fulfill promises. But if he doesn’t step up and go after the media as he is doing with ISIS, he’s not going to make it. This is an all-out war like nothing in American history and his team is simply not fighting it at the level it needs to be fought.

    The shame is, it’s so incredibly easy to fight. We’ve all talked about it here until we’re blue in the digital face. It’s not hard. But Trump has not resolved to do it.

      The fact that he was a Bernie supporter has been known by other Bernie supporters forever.

      They use that fact as “proof” that he was the Leaker of the DNC emails to Wikileaks. Since those emails had REAMS of communications between DNC staffers saying all sorts of terrible crap about Bernie and his supporters and what a joke their whole effort was.

      This is the main reason the Bernie supporters do not buy the whole “It’s the Russians!!!!” crap. And why many believe Rich was killed by the Hillary camp (cuz he was the Leaker).

    Democrats are long gone, I used to be one, basically a conservative democrat, but, it seems to me that the party has become the Progressive-Liberal Organization, or PLO for short.
    I’ve always assumed that when a politician is moving their mouth, the truth is absent. Is it me or does it seem like the PLO has taken manipulation of the facts to new and disgusting levels?
    I believe one of the more important crimes committed by the PLO is the brain washing of young minds; through our educational system. This will have very long and detrimental effects. I feel sorry for the younger generations, someday they will realize that they’ve been lied to.
    I really think the multiculturalism is a dead end street. At one time we assimilated and everyone believed in one government, one common bond, We the People….. Now its seems like we teach people to put their heritage and culture above country. To me that seems to be a form of segregation, not unification. Didn’t we try that segregation stuff some time ago and it didn’t work? So if we promote segregation of cultures, then one of those cultures will become dominant, that’s human nature, and that leads to one group oppressing the rest, that doesn’t sound American. What am I missing here?

      “Multiculturalism” is just a Globalist way to divide and conquer the peeps. It only serves to separate people.

      The term may fly in a lot of EU countries that have never had the huge groups of immigrants from various cultures that the US has enjoyed.

      But here in the US, there are many parts of the country where we have always had a HUGE variety of groups and enjoyed sharing different cultural traditions from the “old country”.

      Once these peeps have been here a few generations, they assimilate fully and most of the traditions they brought from their “old country” tend to die out, but fortunately, there are new immigrants from new places to share with.

      A place like Sweden can fool it’s populace with this meaningless term “Multiculturalism”. Sweden’s been a pretty closed country culturally.

      But you have to be pretty braindead, or from a part of the States that hasn’t seen a lot of immigration, to take the Globalist concept of “Multiculturalism” serious as an American.

    sorry if this is a repost, but interesting article on Drudge:
    (one has to weed through the typical scandalous presentation if reading the article, but the underlying facts are interesting)

    “Within hours of Mueller’s appointment on Wednesday, the White House began reviewing the Code of Federal Regulations, which restricts newly hired government lawyers from investigating their prior law firm’s clients for one year after their hiring, the sources said.

    An executive order signed by Trump in January extended that period to two years.

    Mueller’s former law firm, WilmerHale, represents Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who met with a Russian bank executive in December, and the president’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who is a subject of a federal investigation.

    Legal experts said the ethics rule can be waived by the Justice Department, which appointed Mueller. He did not represent Kushner or Manafort directly at his former law firm.

    If the department did not grant a waiver, Mueller would be barred from investigating Kushner or Manafort, and this could greatly diminish the scope of the probe, experts said.”

    This is all about who exposed the truth about Hillary and the democrats. President Trump has called it right. An excuse for losing the election. The GOP Uniparty is in on it too. In addition it is to attempt impeachment and stop his agenda.
    1. Excuse
    2. Impeach
    3. Stop Agenda if impeachment fails.
    A compleat fuster cluck.

      Then it is time to load up, saddle up and ride.

      What other option will we have?

      We will take the fight to them or we will die.

      Those are the only options left if the Progressive enemies of America are successful.

      Good read Howie…

      But when it comes to the collusion investigation, there are serious questions. A lot of our civil liberties protections and rules of press ethics are designed to prevent exactly this situation, in which a person lingers for extended periods of time under public suspicion without being aware of the exact nature, or origin, of the accusations.

      It’s why liberal thinkers have traditionally abhorred secret courts, secret surveillance and secret evidence, and in the past would have reflexively discouraged the news media from printing the unverified or unverifiable charges emanating from such secret sources. But because it’s Donald Trump, no one seems to care.

      We should care. The uncertainty has led to widespread public terror, mass media hysteria and excess, and possibly even panic in the White House itself, where, who knows, Trump may even have risked military confrontation with Russia in an effort to shake the collusion accusations. All of this is exacerbated by the constant stream of leaks and hints at mother lodes of evidence that are just around the corner. It’s quite literally driving the country crazy.

      The public deserves to know what’s going on. It deserved to know before the election, it deserved to know before the inauguration, and it deserves to know now.

    Yemen’s Houthi movement said on Friday it had fired a ballistic missile toward the Saudi capital Riyadh and the Arab coalition waging war in Yemen said it had intercepted and destroyed a projectile around 200 km (120 miles) west of the city.

    The incident occurred a day before U.S. President Donald Trump was expected in Riyadh at the start of his first foreign trip since taking office in January.

    The Iran-allied Houthis launched a Burkan-1 missile toward Riyadh, a statement by their official news agency said. It Riyadh but gave no further detail.

    Howie posted a good read from leftie Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone a few comments above…Seems many people are questioning all of this …

    Here is a nevertrumper from National Review I found at Daily Caller…I have been thinking this exact way since before inauguration and it makes PERFECT SENSE of why this is a witch hunt…

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/19/why-there-wont-be-any-evidence-of-russian-collusion-explained-in-just-two-paragraphs/

    Are any Democratic lawmakers starting to fear that they’re not going to find that evidence? The intelligence community is presumably always watching the Russian government as closely as they can. The FBI counterintelligence guys presumably track Russian agents on our soil as much as possible. You figure the NSA can track just about any electronic communication between Russians and figures in the Trump campaign. If there was something sinister and illegal going on between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, the U.S. government as a whole had every incentive in the world to expose that as quickly as possible. They didn’t expose it before Election Day, they didn’t expose it before the Electoral College voted, they didn’t expose it before Inauguration Day … How many months have the best investigators in the United States been digging into this?

      CrowdStrike was hired by the Democratic National Committee to investigate suspicious network activity last May. In June it declared that the committee had been hacked by the Russian government, starting a firestorm over the campaign.

      CrowdStrike, based in Irvine, California, is also the only group that the DNC allowed to directly examine its servers.

      Not even the FBI has been granted access to the servers.

      U.S. agencies have instead relied on CrowdStrike’s work. There is no other known forensic evidence which has been publicly disclosed to link the Kremlin to the attacks, including in a series of intelligence community statements and reports.
