    Just a note on my time deep in enemy territory commenting on the CBS News site. I got into a rather fierce battle with a dimwitted libtard and bashed him into submission with facts until he finally resorted to name calling and foul language. I then told him ‘You know, the little money George Soros is paying you is not worth losing your soul!’ He replied ‘ There is no God therefore there is no such thing as a soul’ THIS is what we are dealing with …. a whole generation of people who think and believe this. We praise and rally around our Great Leader PDJT and it will take years and years to bring our country back but how far has the whole of humanity fallen? I pity these fools the day the TRUE Leader, Our Lord Jesus Christ returns and smites them all into the burning pit ….. htne we will really see the snowflakes melting.

      I have hardly, if at all, fought in the trenches lately. I really don’t think the truly brainwashed can be red-pilled. I had only posted in MSM sites before in hopes that a low info voter would be enlightened. I praise you for doing it, it might help someone else, not the person you were arguing with. I, myself, learned a lot from commenters and came to this place through the comments on Breitbart. But I have been hiding here the last few months and have not been fighting the good fight on the net.

    I’m surprised to see this quickly an article in a left leading publication from a noted social justice attorney admitting that yesterday was not a victory for the left. This article eviserates Comey’s leaking including possible violations of the Bar. T45 has the Law strongly on his side relative to Comey; leftist hope is not a viable strategy; are we seeing the beginnings of a retreat?

    ‘The greatest irony is that Trump succeeded in baiting Comey to a degree that even Trump could not have imagined. After calling Comey a “showboat” and poor director, Comey proceeded to commit an unethical and unprofessional act in leaking damaging memos against Trump.’

    ‘As a threshold matter, Comey asked a question with regard to Trump that he should now answer with regard to his own conduct. Comey asked why Trump would ask everyone to leave the Oval Office to speak with Comey unless he was doing something improper. Yet, Trump could ask why Comey would use a third party to leak these memos if they were his property and there was nothing improper in their public release.’

      Great article. Another point is that the information leaked doesnt’ have to be classifies.

      “Assuming that the memos were not classified (though it seems odd that it would not be classified even on the confidential level), there is 18 U.S.C. § 641, which makes it a crime to steal, sell, or convey “any record, voucher, money, or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof.”

      By Comey’s stated standard, he intended to do “something improper”.

      It WAS: Comey was seditiously trying to set President Trump up for a take-down!

        Can’t agree with you on this, MM. The V.P. has no Constitutional duties except presiding over the Senate when necessary (or when not, if he wants to). President Trump trusts V.P. Pence to handle items he hasn’t time for which is a most valuable service. It’s not mere PR. It is visiting with Americans and reporting to the American people at large. NOT insignificant.

      I wish more people would recognize the many ways VP Pence’s trips benefit President Trump (instead of griping).

      For starters, the military is near-and-dear to PDJT’s heart. VP Pence mingles with the troops in a way that, I believe, President Trump wishes he could do himself. VP Pence is also probably collecting input/feedback — which he carries back to the Commander-in-Chief — to help fulfill his promise to improve the lives of those who serve our country.

      A few more … A frequent complaint is that politicians want only money and votes and, therefore, show up just before an election. Well, VP Pence’s frequent trips are not made to seek money or votes; each trip illuminates this distinction between PDJT’s team and typical politicians. VP Pence by proxy emphasizes the message that President Trump is working for ALL Americans. VP Pence never speaks with even a hint of divisiveness — how refreshing and good for our nation’s soul is that?

    It was reported that POTUS’s personal attorneys were uncovering Comey’s leaking since March. It was pretty much a well-known fact among NY media people per FNC’s AB Stoddard. This could explain why Comey so readily admitted his leaking yesterday. Someone (Mueller?) warned him so he decided to come out himself at the hearing. I bet POTUS’s team was ready to strike with that fact if he had not admitted it.

        Of course Comey has “selective amnesia” about the timeline involving his leaks (plural) regarding the “memos” which are possibly even “documents” manufactured post facto, or were misleading documents manufactured contemporaneously by a political player who generated colored and inventive “contemporaneous notes” that could be set aside for a rainy day or for possible use as blackmail.

        IMO Trump’s own security people had put Comey high on the list of probable “leakers” and were wary of Comey having flagged Comey as a likely security “risk”. So Trump was very likely aware of the untrustworthiness of Comey even before Comey was properly and belatedly shitcanned based upon whatever publicly stated reasons. Better late than never.

        And as for the manner of the termination not being polished and political so as to minimize blowback ….Trump uncerimoniously stomped a cockroach in his office, which works just fine for most people, but not so much for the cockroach and its familiars.

  11. Came across a tweet by a reporter for Politico, Alex Isenstadt. He is reporting that Mitt Romney revealed in Park City that Hillary encouraged him to take State Department job. Aside from this being from Politico, I find the fact that he admitted this to be absolutely astounding. Combined with the fact that Biden was his keynote speaker, how much more proof do we need of the continued scheming of the UniParty? Ryan & McCain were in attendance too!

    This leads me to many, many questions. The first, and most important to me, who on the transition team was pushing for Romney? Who recommended this and pushed it. I plan to do some digging to see if I can find an answer. If anyone has insight into this, please share. I do remember specific people sounding the alarms publicly against this choice.

    Our POTUS was not fooled. The dinner where he served frog legs is unforgettable. I am sure our President gained great insight into his team. I’ll be happy when he does some housecleaning.

Rahter, President Trump will be blessed like Solomon as like Solomon when he was at the site of the temple in Jerusalem he prayed for one thing only — wisdom. Solomon likewise prayed only for wisdom, and because of that God said he was also granting him wealth and peace, and peace came to pass during his reign.

    Virginia’s Primary Election for Governor and Lieutenant Governor is Tuesday June 13 2017. You can find your poll location at https://vote.elections.virginia.gov/VoterInformation/PollingPlaceLookup

    It is an open primary, you must choose R or D ballot. The sample ballot R is here: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/elections/sample_ballot/june2017_rep_primary_rev1.pdf

    (R) VA Gov Candidate Corey A. Stewart http://www.coreystewart.com/issues
    (R) VA Lt Gov Candidate Bryce E. Reeves http://www.brycereeves.com/issues

    (R) VA Gov Candidate Frank W. Wagner frank@wagnervasenate.com
    (R) VA Lt Gov Candidate Jill H. Vogel https://www.vogelforvirginia.com/issues/

    (R) VA Governor Candidate (R) Frank W. Wagner frank@wagnervasenate.com
    (R) VA Lt Governor Candidate (R) Glenn R. Davis, Jr. glenn@http://davisforlg.com/

    I had intended to do a much more detailed write up, but after researching the candidates, for me the choice was simple. Cory Stewart and Bryce Reeves are both very respectable, are on the Treeper side of all issues, and solidly support Mr. Trump.

    Cory Stewart was a TEA Party candidate, served as President Trump’s Virginia first state chairman but was fired after participating in a protest outside Republican National Committee headquarters.

    Bryce E. Reeves was an Army Ranger, a front-line narcotics and vice detective, a leader in his church, and youth coach. I found his very short state legislative history impressive.

    Gillespie and Vogel are long time GOP establishment. The media heavily supports them. Gillespie was the VA REP Chairman and a Bush counselor. Vogel has quite a few votes (or abstains) diametrically opposed to what she says she supports, and her husband got caught playing dirty political tricks against Stewart.

    Warner and Davis are the stereotypical “say nothing and blow with the wind” RINO-ettes who are careful not to say anything, and use lots of meaningless words. This is so endemic to them both, I was never able to find anything saying they are running mates. I have never seen a sign or ad with both their names on it. Total bet hedgers. Not that it matters much, both are last in the polls.
