    I am frustrated at what’s been going on but, I will not let it get me down. I’m not the best Christian, not even close but I do not believe that after the miracle election we all saw that God is going to let the President be taken down. It may not look good at the moment but until Elvis leaves the building I will have faith.

    To take your mind off of things, here is an update on the Travel Ban. It appears with all that has happened today, things have been moving on the case:

    Government responds to 9th Circuit ruling, asks for more briefing (UPDATED 5:45 p.m.)
    UPDATED: This afternoon the Supreme Court ordered the federal government and the challengers to file additional briefs regarding the government’s request to reinstate the travel ban. The justices instructed the government to file its supplemental brief by 3 p.m. on June 15; the challengers will file their response by 12 p.m. on June 20; and the government will file its reply by 12 p.m. on June 21.

    Anyone remember Sessions saying to Kamaling Harris something along the lines of she was going too fast and it confused him?

    Seems that now Rosenstein and Mueller are in charge of DOJ. DOJ is now weaponized to take Trump down.

    Sessions threatens leakers and now more leaks, They are laughing at us

      I actually thought he was politely telling her she was being obnoxious. I truly don’t know what is going on behind the scenes with the leakers. I suspect it is one of two things:
      a) he’s on it and preparing cases or
      b) the department is rotten to the core and he has no control over it.

      I’d have to flip a coin to know which way I lean on it,

      Being subjected to rapid fire questioning and interruptions like a submachine gun while he was trying to answer would confuse anybody, but that’s not what he said.

      He said it made him nervous. She was extremely disrespectful. If congress can put up with the likes of Strom Thurmond and John McCain, then we can certainly deal with an Attorney General who doesn’t care for being water-boarded.

      She was trying to drive him into a rapid fire yes/no where she could spring things on him and get an unconsidered response, which could be either terribly dangerous for him if wrong or alternatively indiscreet with respect to his communications with POTUS. What was he to do? Show off how bright he is and fly along with her until she got to a tender point and then fall silent? So he told her to slow down, in terms that state for the record that her approach was flippant with respect to the gravity and risk of his situation, that she was inviting error.

    Treepers,

    This is a must read “How the Washington Post Radicalizes Murderers”

    An excerpt:

    “Cass Sunstein, a leftist who’s happy whenever a conservative dies early, wrote a book called Nudge. It’s a good psychology book. Nudge is about persuasion, which is my chief interest. Sunstein teaches people how to get others to swat mosquitoes for us.

    The mainstream media revere Sunstein. The right hates Sunstein. The left applies Sunstein’s science to manipulate people from a distance. Like swatting mosquitoes without leaving your easy chair. Conservatives, on the other hand, pooh-pooh psychology and neuroscience. They think it’s voodoo or witchery.

    Because the leftist media like CNN, Washington Post, New York Times, and MSNBC use psychology, they can influence their fringe to attack and kill conservatives. They’re very good at psychology.”

      It is impossible for The President of the United State to ‘obstruct’ justice. It is possible for Mueller and his democrat scheme team to cook up some kine of goofy indictment for the Uniparty in the house to use for impeachment. That is and has been their goal from the start. Back in 2016. Starting on Nov. 8. Impeachment is a political, not a legal process. What you are seeing is the impeachment process.

      From the Washington Post link:

      The story never appeared on the morning and afternoon menu at news meetings held daily by the paper’s editors to decide on upcoming political stories for Thursday’s newshole. Instead, the heavily anonymous-sourced story simply appeared late Wednesday night already published, bypassing the once-mandated editorial process established to flush out poorly-sourced stories or stories with weak reader appeal.

      Haha! Even the fake news has fake news. Ever seen a word more appropriate than “newshole”? Heck, that describes the “hole” newspaper.

      Wonder what their game this time?

        To change today’s narrative off of the shooting incident because people are pointing out the Left’s hateful rhetoric has led to the shooting. The W.P. fake news story gives CNN, MSNBC, and FOX news excuses to cover the fake news story and not the shooting incident. They also want to run the headline that Trump is being investigated for Obstruction of Justice, even though he is not. The Collusion story is now dead in the water, so we are not onto the next fake news story.

    As Alex has correctly said, nothing happened today. Except that Mueller met with Congressional investigation leaders, I think.

    And that has been spun up into “breaking news.”

    The only possible hope that any anti-Trump person has at the present time of going after Trump was the obstruction angle. Of course Mueller is going to look at it. If he did not, there is literally no reason for him to be the Special Counselor. The other ‘charge’ (collusion) is already gone, essentially.

    The media and the Dems/Deep State are simply puffing-up what we know. And they want to keep the “Trump under investigation” story as a main narrative, now that the Comey show is over and Sessions testified.

    This is PR warfare, and little more.

    The best part of all of this is that the leakers are still bold. And the more bold they remain, the better chance they will be caught.

    I said this in another thread — unless some new, very damning evidence comes out regarding the obstruction argument, it appears baseless. The evidence that currently exists does not appear like it can get the Dems over the goal line.

    I’m good. Not freaking out, not bothered by any commenters on the site, nothing.

    If you never get on the emotional roller coaster, you won’t get pulled up and down the hills and you don’t have to wait to get off, either.

  17. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/why-is-it-sexist-when-men-interrupt-kamala-harris-but-not-betsy-devos/article/2626015

    After Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., was interrupted not once, but twice, by male colleagues in a short succession of days, liberals leapt at the opportunity to champion her #persistence in the face of alleged sexism.
    But where were those headlines for Betsy DeVos?

    Consider the way in which three different male late night television hosts ruthlessly mocked an out of context soundbite of DeVos discussing guns in schools, laughing smugly at her implied stupidity. The clip itself was only made possible by Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., cutting her off as she elaborated on an entirely valid point about the importance of deferring to state and local governments.

    That the mainstream media eagerly covered interruptions of Harris, yet never attempted to do the same for DeVos should tell you from whom people sitting in coastal newsrooms take their cues. Worse, the Left’s impulse to cry sexism over interruptions of Harris but not DeVos means either those complaints are examples of insincere opportunism or that so-called feminists do not care about conservative women. The truth is probably a combination of both.

    If feminism is to be taken seriously as a vehicle for fighting sexism, the movement must demonstrate it is actually interested in doing so, even and especially when the direct beneficiary of its efforts will be a conservative women.

    If today’s events haven’t taught us that we’ve reached a cultural and political dead-end in this country I don’t know what will. The Left wants to kill us, figuratively and now literally, and there is noting to do about it according to any traditional remediation. I realize it is a hard thing to reckon with, but it must be reckoned with. It’s a dead-end, plain and simple. We must find a new way, which in fact is an old way that we fear or have lost touch with — war. They must be broken and humiliated and scattered to the winds, and it won’t happen by itself. And it won’t happen by waiting for the judgment of the people.
