    Of course we have unhinged Democrats. After 8 years of Obama that’s what happens but the tide will turn. Things will be brought under control. These Moonbats are Being marginalized And exposed as the lunatics that they are. Kathy Griffin and Hillary have sped that up this week. In Less than two years. President Trump will be heralded as one of our best in history.

    trump’s goal is to return reasonable operating cost of 1990s to usa by immigration laws/tax reform/border tax to quit bleeding of social benefits. back then there was 1$ macdonald hasbrown, new menu items,variety quality long warranty,saturday cartoons, and 2000$ for total emergency full care cost.

    dems/rinos mccain cost everything to go up by being pro illegal goodcop/badcop middle east. in san francisco now it’s 2000$ per hour thanks to obamacare. apple loves regulations/gov subsides but don’t love California cost so they flee to outsource/abuse h1b visa. climate agreement will screw usa with more burden on top of illegals upkeep cost. why should usa sponsor green energy to another corrupt country that mishandle economy or are responsible for toss illegals on usa like mexico/latin america with help from make road new york? tesla/apple love gov jobs while screwing everyone else. dnc like 320k taxpayer salary jerry brown/seiu/harris should cut pensions

    “I’ve talked with Director Mueller about this,” Rosenstein said. “He’s going to make the appropriate decisions, and if anything that I did winds up being relevant to his investigation then, as Director Mueller and I discussed, if there’s a need from me to recuse I will.”

      Mueller is going to try to take President Trump out.

      Greg Jarrett makes sense when he’s off the booze.

      “The law governing the special counsel (28 CFR 600.7) specifically prohibits him from serving if he has a conflict of interest in the case.  The rule has been interpreted to mean that even the appearance of a conflict is sufficient for disqualification. 

      A conflict of interest is a situation in which an individual has competing interests or loyalties.  The conflict itself creates a clash between that individual’s self-interest or bias and his professional or public interest.  It calls into question whether he can discharge his responsibilities in a fair, objective and impartial manner.    

      Identical rules govern prosecutors who, for example, must recuse themselves from handling a case against a person with whom they have worked or had a personal relationship.  The same would be true if a prosecutor had a close relationship with a witness in the case.  The prior association raises the real or perceived possibility of prejudice or favoritism which is contrary to the fair administration of justice.

      So what exactly is Mueller’s conflict?  He and Comey are good friends and former colleagues who worked hand-in-hand at the FBI and Department of Justice. Agents will tell you they were joined at the hip.  They stood together in solidarity, both threatening to resign over the warrantless wiretapping fiasco involving then-Attorney General John Ashcroft in 2004.

      Comey regards his predecessor as a mentor, while Mueller considers Comey his protégé.  When Comey was appointed to succeed Mueller as FBI Director, both men appeared together and were effusive in their praise of one another.  Their relationship is not merely a casual one.  It is precisely the kind of association which ethical rules are designed to guard against

      So it is clear where all of this is headed.  Mueller’s probe will morph into an investigation of the Trump-Comey meeting to determine whether the president tried to obstruct justice.  It will become a case of “he said…he said”.   Which man will the special counsel believe?  His good friend or the man who fired his good friend?  How can Mueller fairly and impartially assess Comey’s credibility versus Trump’s? 

      There is also the fairness of the broader investigation to consider.  It is reasonable to assume Mueller was not pleased to see Comey canned.  Any animosity which the special counsel may bear could influence the course of his overall investigation into potential wrongdoing by President Trump and his associates.  He may be tempted to conjure criminality where none really exists.”

        As I had been saying’ it is the Uniparty Coup de Gras IMO. Stinkin to high heaven. If anyone should recuse it is Mueller. Drastic action will be needed. I can’t read it any other way. No I still don’t think it is a wonderful deal and he is going after the Uniparty crooks. He is a hit man. HMO. Sessions recuses…now Rosenstein recuses. Globaloney….No interim FBI guy. McCabe in charge of FBI. It is a PUT ON.

        He won’t get away with the phony obstruction of justice charge. He would not have the balls to bring the charge. It is weak.

        Unless, of course, Comey can try to manufacture some sentiment in his testimony to Congress that gives Mueller popular support for bringing the charge. It ain’t gonna work, though. Come is not very likable and Meuller will be skewered. He could not be that stupid.

        Here is an article by A McCarthy on the topic:

        http://www.nationalreview.com/article/448209/james-comey-president-trump-obstruction-justice-didnt-happen

        The Russia investigation is not going anywhere because it did not happen. Mueller may try to indict Manafort on some unrelated charge to Ukraine, maybe financial impropriety or not reporting he was foreign agent, etc. But paperwork and registration as foreign agent, etc. is typically not prosecuted criminally.

        He may try to get Flynn on some paperwork issue too, but I don’t think it is serious. Trump would be right to pardon him too. The Turkey thing is a Turkey too.

        Something tells me that this whole thing was a trap to cover for the disaster of illegal spying by Obama and Hillary’s crime. It is a diversion. And Trump should start declassifying stuff if he needs to. Comey is one dirty bastard-that I believe. The question is whether Meuller is. We shall see. He won’t get away with it.

        I expect there is a lot more to come. If Mueller was smart, he would just cover this whole thing up before it blows up on him and all his FBI buddies and other cronies in the DOJ and the intelligence community. He should just play the role of fixer and get everyone out of this because if he tries to go after Trump, he is gonna get smacked down big time.

        Comey had a legal obligation to report any islanders of obstruction. Not just a vague memo, an actual report. Instead he testified in front of Congress that there had been no interference.

      Excerpt:

      “In quitting the Paris Accord, President Trump on Thursday did nothing to shift the course of US environmental policy — not even on carbon emissions. But he did put the world on notice that no president can unilaterally commit this nation to such far-reaching agreements.

      The Constitution is clear: No treaty is binding on the US government unless ratified by the Senate. That tanked the Kyoto Protocol, a 1997 anti-warming treaty that the Senate rejected 95-0. And it would’ve killed the Paris deal that President Obama signed in 2016 — except that his negotiators shaped an “agreement” that wouldn’t go to the Senate.

      But one that still would’ve been used to rewrite US law, if the courts went along. (And a President Hillary Clinton’s judicial picks would have ensured that they did.)

      In fact, Trump had already abandoned the Paris goals by junking Obama’s Clean Power Plan. Yet he’s not turning back the clock. He’s just saying no to what Obama sought to impose — a rush to a low-carbon America at huge economic cost.

      Under Paris, as Trump noted, the United States would’ve had to close all its coal plants, even as China builds hundreds more — and coal still generates a third of US electricity.
      Yet America will continue to cut its carbon emissions: They’re already down by a fifth since 2000, thanks to fracking and the gradual replacement of coal plants with natural-gas ones. That’s better than Europe did as it implemented Kyoto by making electricity cost twice as much as it does here.”

    OK kids, time for another laugh.

    The SJWs have stated their punishment for Our POTUS’ withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Fraud –

    “the U.S. should face tangible punishment for putting the rest of the rest of humanity at risk”

    And how will they do this?
    “economic sanctions in the face of Trump’s climate vandalism”

    Yup, they are going to run economic sanctions on the U.S. through, what, the U.N.??? Don’t tell ’em we sit on the U.N. Security Council. Just between you and me, the U.S. is still the world’s largest economy. P.S. and pls don’t tell ’em they are sanctioning themselves.

    Just watched the latest episode of Vice on HBO which covered the Iraqi army fight against ISIS. I was struck by the sheer destruction that is evident everywhere…. it is very sad. W has a lot to answer for with regard to Iraq, in my opinion. Obama is responsible for ISIS. The Iraqi people are very sure who is to blame…

    So sad to see ancient cities reduced to rubble, kids with guns, men with no jobs… schools bombed to smithereens. Meanwhile, their US backed politicians are sitting fat and happy…. not lost on the citizenry either. One guy that was interviewed said that the US took out one tyrant (Sadaam) and replaced him with 100 tyrants, said they were doing much better with their single tyrant.

    Also evident was the extreme hate between Shia and Sunni “tribes”. With no strong leader, Iraq will probably devolve to tribal warfare once ISIS is destroyed.

    Very sad.
