    Trafalgar was the only polling firm to predict Trump would win Pennsylvania and Michigan if you remember. This is a good sign for Handle in Georgia-6. I don’t see Assoff getting more than his 48% in first run off, but we will see tomorrow….

      What a classy courageous guy. No wonder Scalise and Trump get along and he was targeted. May he continue on his path to recovery without major hurdles and return to his lovely family. They have all sacrificed.

I feel they have brought this on themselves. So they now have two choices, be American and turn in the bad guys or go back to their original country.

    Remember a couple days ago when Amazon bought Whole Foods, and how Uber and Lyft were going to have something to say about Amazon’s big dreams?

    The future has arrived.

    Lyft’s New Shuttle Service Is More Convenient Than Lyft Line
    “Lyft has recently rolled out a “shuttle” service that is in beta in San Francisco and Chicago.”

    “the routes currently offered…go to most neighborhoods…If you have a similar situation if and when Lyft Shuttle comes to your city, this is a convenient—and more affordable—alternative.”

    The media is expending all their energy to attack President Trump. He can spend literally two minutes in the morning to tweet and push back, leaving the rest of the day to do the actual work needed to Make America Great Again. The balance is far in President Trump’s favor, the media is fighting a losing battle.

    From group known as The Cuba Initiative:

    Dear Cuba Initiative Member

    You will no doubt be aware that President Trump officially released details of his Administration’s policy towards Cuba on Friday June 16. You will find the full Presidential Memorandum attached here, along with a list of Frequently Asked Questions published by the Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

    As anticipated, the policy represents a significant shift in tone away from that adopted by President Obama. President Trump describes his policy as intended to ‘improve human rights, encourage the rule of law, foster free markets and free enterprise, and promote democracy in Cuba’.

    There is however a gap between the rhetoric and the substance, with loud rhetoric masking a much more limited change in actual policy. The most clear substantive changes to the policy are:

    More targeted sanctions against specific Cuban economic actors “that disproportionately benefit the Cuban government or its military, intelligence or security agencies.”

    Much tighter enforcement of the controls on travel of US citizens to Cuba. These controls will undoubtedly dramatically soften demand by US travellers to Cuba which has become normalised tourism travel in all but name under President Obama.

    It is important to note, however, that this directive does not in any sense represent a full-scale reversal of President Obama’s normalisation policy to those in place under President Bush. In particular:

    No roll-back on remittances to Cuba
    No reinstatement of limits of spend by US citizens in Cuba
    No reinstatement of bans on imports of Cuban cigars by US citizens
    No reinstatement of bans on Cuban-Americans visiting family
    No redesignation of Cuba as a state sponsor of terror
    No reinstatement of the ‘wet foot, dry foot’ policy
    Diplomatic relations and the embassies continue
    Liberalised OFAC rules on Cuban access to USD payments are unchanged
    The regular dialogue on such key bilateral issues as migration, narcotics control, environmental protection and over flights is maintained
    Agricultural and telecom sales remain permitted with revised credit terms as changed by Obama
    Direct air travel, ferries and cruise liners remain permitted

    The memorandum instructs Treasury and Commerce departments to develop detailed policy over the next 30 days. These are to be enforced within 90 days of the relevant regulations being finalised. According to OFAC, changes to transactions with Cuba will be implemented “over the coming months”.

    The Cuba Initiative will be monitoring the policy environment as explicit regulatory and legislative amendments are introduced, and will be taking stock of what these changes mean for our members in the coming days and weeks.

    Gov. Jerry Brown and state politicians will receive a 3 percent pay hike starting in December, their fifth raise in as many years as California’s budget picture continues to improve.

    The raises, approved Monday by the California Citizens Compensation Commission, come on top the 4 percent salary increases that kicked in late last year. Brown’s pay will climb from $190,102 to $195,805, while rank-and-file lawmakers will go from $104,117 to $107,240.

    Salaries for other statewide politicians like Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Treasurer John Chiang also will rise.

    If there was hard evidence of switching votes, wouldn’t it have been leaked. If there a smidgen of financial conflict of interest, wouldn’t it have been leaked by the IRS by now. If there was a chance this “collusion” was true, wouldn’t the GOPe see this as their opportunity to impeach and get rid of Trump.

      Presidential Records Act (PRA) of 1978

      The Presidential Records Act (PRA) of 1978, 44 U.S.C. ß2201-2209, governs the official records of Presidents and Vice Presidents created or received after January 20, 1981. The PRA changed the legal ownership of the official records of the President from private to public, and established a new statutory structure under which Presidents must manage their records.

      Specifically, the Presidential Records Act:

      Defines and states public ownership of the records.
      Places the responsibility for the custody and management of incumbent Presidential records with the President.
      Allows the incumbent President to dispose of records that no longer have administrative, historical, informational, or evidentiary value, once he has obtained the views of the Archivist of the United States on the proposed disposal.
      Requires that the President and his staff take all practical steps to file personal records separately from Presidential records.
      Establishes a process for restriction and public access to these records. Specifically, the PRA allows for public access to Presidential records through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) beginning five years after the end of the Administration, but allows the President to invoke as many as six specific restrictions to public access for up to twelve years. The PRA also establishes procedures for Congress, courts, and subsequent Administrations to obtain special access to records that remain closed to the public, following a thirty-day notice period to the former and current Presidents..
      Requires that Vice-Presidential records are to be treated in the same way as Presidential records.

    good article excerpt:

    Congratulations, Clintons: you have successfully devastated this country, or at least your half of it. Congratulations to the Democratic Party – you followed them into the fires of Hell. Congratulations, MSNBCCNNABCNBCCBSNewYorkTimesWashingtonPost – your ratings and new riches are soaked in blood. Congratulations to you leftist voters – you chose to throw in with them, allowing hatred to overwhelm you, bitterness to fester into what occurred.

    So where were the adults in the Democratic Party? Gone, except for one. Alan Dershowitz really tried telling the truth on the issue of impeachment, but none of the leftist journalists wanted to listen. They were too busy outraging their audience about Trump-Russia. Trump traitor. Trump/Hitler. Trump bad. Really? The grand nothing they’ve been reporting is now exposed and slowly twisting in the wind. It’s done.

    Kindly recall the national media blaming Sarah Palin for the shooting of Gabby Giffords, with no evidence. Recall the Clinton-media complex trying to blame Rush Limbaugh for the Oklahoma City bombing. So many examples of them wrongfully accusing the right of fomenting violence. Most of us on the right remember being tarred and feathered with no evidence, but this shooting is much more real as an example of hate speech whipping up a crime. The shooter was clearly a true leftist believer, steeped in the propaganda of MSNBC, CNN, and the entire leftist crazy worldview. We shouldn’t let them forget, and you can tell they know that from their coverage.

    Now, we all know of media double standards, but there is an absurdity in what we’ve witnessed since the 2016 defeat of the Clinton machine. And it was a machine. It burned through more than a billion dollars, and now it faces disgrace for the left’s loss. Scorched earth was the remedy, and here we are.

    The sheer amount of hatred that has been piled on Trump, his associates, and his voters is unequaled in our times. The left has followed the lead of the Clinton machine in wanting blood, and now it has blood. There are myriad articles discussing how close to civil war we might be, and this climate fomented by the leftist hate machine is close to lighting that fuse.

    For all the grandstanding in the past by the left about “hate speech,” they are the ones who have ratcheted hatred up to the brink of civil war. They are the ones who have irrationally stoked this flame. They, and they alone, are the responsible parties. They are the ones with blood on their hands.
    I am not advocating civil war. Not at all. Even though the left would lose in a disgraceful rout, it’s not something anyone should want.
    More important, I think today marks the day the civil war failed on the left. Even though the media won’t report the truth about leftist hate fomenting this latest shooting, the mask came off. The country knows. When Bernie Sanders came out and finally said what he should have been saying every week since the election, that the violence has to stop, the tide turned. When the Democrat congresscritters staged their photo-op as if they were praying for “the matter,” you know the tide turned. When you see Democrat officials, the very same ones who have been calling for resistance, en masse call for unity, you know that the jig is up for them. Let’s not let them forget. They need to be held accountable.

    In spite of the lunatic left winning the Democrat soul, in spite of the calls on their part to kill more Republicans (which calls they are still making), they have now lost. Their bloodlust has backfired. The Democratic Party is in shambles, as demonstrated by the fact that only one adult stood up to this crowd-shaming nonsensical hate-fest of the past eight months. They have no message but the bitter rage of the Clinton machine. The Democrat-media complex have disgraced themselves during this time by following the Clinton lead in scorching the earth. They are beginning a downward spiral of self-recrimination, rage, and sputtering about narratives that no longer work. They face a deep wilderness in their cocooned safe spaces. Their scorched earth tactics have turned on them, burning only themselves, brought on by themselves. The tide has turned.

      “If we continue as before, people in many parts of Africa have no other chance than to get to us,” Muller, a member of the Christian Social Union, told German tabloid Bild am Sonntag. “If we do not manage to limit global warming to two degrees, up to 100 million people will move north in the future.”

      Muller suggests a large-scale investment Marshall Plan in Africa and higher wages for workers.

      “If an Apple phone is sold here for 800 euros, it must be ensured that decent wages are paid in the coltan mines in the Congo and environmental standards are applied,” Muller told Bild.

      German Chancellor Angela Merkel met with African leaders Monday in Berlin to discuss future “reform partnerships.” The chancellor vowed to invest 300 million euros ($335 million) to help governments manage the refugee flows.

    Hillary Clinton Told FBI’s Mueller To Deliver Uranium To Russians In 2009 “Secret Plane-Side Tarmac Meeting”

    by Tyler Durden
    Jun 19, 2017 6:25 PM

    “Over two years ago Russia requested a ten-gram sample of highly enriched uranium (HEU) seized in early 2006 in Georgia during a nuclear smuggling sting operation involving one Russian national and several Georgian accomplices. The seized HEU was transferred to U.S. custody and is being held at a secure DOE facility.”

    The secret “action request,” dated Aug. 17, 2009, was sent out by Secretary of State Clinton and was addressed to the United States Ambassador to Georgia Embassy Tbilisi, the Russian Embassy, and Ambassador John Beyrle.

    It proposed that FBI Director Robert Mueller be the one that personally conduct the transfer a 10-gram sample of HEU to Russian law enforcement sources during a secret “plane-side” meeting on a “tarmac” in the early fall of 2009.

    “We require that the transfer of this material be conducted at the airport, on the tarmac near by the plane, upon arrival of the Director’s aircraft.”

    The FBI Director was originally scheduled to ‘return’ a sample from the DOE stockpile to the Russians in April but the trip was postponed until September 21.

    Paragraph number 6 of the leaked cable confirms Dir. Mueller’s Sept. 21 flight to Moscow.

    “(S/Rel Russia) Action request: Embassy Moscow is requested to alert at the highest appropriate level the Russian Federation that FBI Director Mueller plans to deliver the HEU sample once he arrives to Moscow on September 21. Post is requested to convey information in paragraph 5 with regard to chain of custody, and to request details on Russian Federation’s plan for picking up the material. Embassy is also requested to reconfirm the April 16 understanding from the FSB verbally that we will have no problem with the Russian Ministry of Aviation concerning Mueller’s September 21 flight clearance.”

    But possibly even more shocking is the fact that the State Department wanted the transfer of the HEU to take place on an “airport tarmac” which is rather reminiscent of the infamous Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton meeting which occurred on a Phoenix, Arizona, tarmac back in June of 2016.

    Past dealings with the Russians were also mentioned in the cable, signifying that previous deals have taken place.

      New Clinton-Mueller Russian uranium ties surface in the latest Wikileaks release… “We require that the transfer of this material be conducted at the airport, on the tarmac near by the plane, upon arrival of the Director’s aircraft.”

      Authored by Shepard Ambellas via Intellihub.com,

      Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton facilitated the transfer a highly enriched uranium (HEU) previously confiscated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) during a 2006 “nuclear smuggling sting operation involving one Russian national and several Georgian accomplices,” a newly leaked classified cable shows.

      Interesting that Wikileaks release substantiates Webb recent connect the dots.
