    President Trump is obviously an astute man of character, positive rational thinking, and ability.
    Maybe that’s why the violent left is so triggered and absolutely deranged. It’s unlike anything I have ever seen in my lifetime.

    Recently, B-list actor Johnny Depp issued an assassination threat to President Trump, and after backlash was forced to apologize.

    Next up, D-lister John Cusack, who is tweeting out dark images with death threats as a “message for Trump.”

    Editor’s update – Looks like John Cusack deleted his original tweet, but the bad news for him is screenshots are forever.

      That’s really sad. And now I would like to know why doesn’t Fox take the blinders off and cover what is really going on in Washington. They are a master at making you think their analasis of some inconsequential sidetracking story is important jounalism and that you are now an informed person. I never watch any of them.

    Did the FBI retaliate against Michael Flynn by launching Russia probe?
    by John Solomon and Sara Carter

    The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews

    • wyntre says:


      McCabe eventually became the bureau’s No. 2 executive and emerged as a central player in the FBI’s Russia election tampering investigation, putting him in a position to impact the criminal inquiry against Flynn.

      Three FBI employees told Circa they personally witnessed McCabe make disparaging remarks about Flynn before and during the time the retired Army general emerged as a figure in the Russia case.

      The bureau employees, who spoke only on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution, said they did not know the reason for McCabe’s displeasure with Flynn, but that it made them uncomfortable as the Russia probe began to unfold and pressure built to investigate Flynn. One employee even consulted a private lawyer.

      “As far as the troops in the field, the vast-majority were disgusted with the Russia decision, but that was McCabe driving the result that eventually led [former FBI Director James] Comey to make the decision,” said a senior federal law enforcement official, with direct knowledge of the investigation.

      FBI agents’ concerns became more pronounced when a highly-classified piece of evidence — an intercepted conversation between Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak — suddenly leaked to the news media and prompted Flynn’s resignation as Trump’s top security adviser.

      “The Flynn leaks were nothing short of political,” one FBI employee said, noting the specific contents of the conversation were known by only a handful of government officials when they leaked. “The leaks appeared to be targeted to take Flynn out.” 
      Eventually the probe on Flynn moved beyond Russia to questions about whether he properly disclosed foreign payments affecting his security clearance.

    I’m getting to like Bill Mitchell more and more. Just listened to today’s. Toward the beginning and the end, he talks about the money financing the GOP. He said VP Pence met with the Koch Brothers, then the brothers came out and told the GOP Congress that there would be no more financial backing unless they started to get the important things done: like health care, taxes and budget. I always feel more “up” after listening.

    Three CNN staffers quit over retracted story
    Jun 26, 2017

    Three people have resigned from CNN following the retraction of a report last week alleging ties between an associate of President Trump and the Russians.

    “In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” the news organization announced Monday in a very brief statement.

    The three who quit are: “CNN Investigates” reporter Thomas Frank; the story’s editor, Eric Lichtblau; and “CNN Investigates” executive editor Lex Haris.

    The resignations come just days after CNN pulled down a story claiming longtime Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci, who played a significant role on the president’s White House transition team, had deep ties to a $10 billion Russian investment fund owned by a Kremlin-connected bank.

    The now-deleted story, which provided no proof of its claims, cited a single anonymous source.

    On Friday of last week, CNN deleted the story from its website. The cable news group also issued the following statement, “On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund.”

    It added, “That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci.”

    The wronged party in this case responded well to the retraction.

    Apologize if this has been posted already but it goes to motivation of FBI.
    Flynn defended the female for great work.
    McCabe went after her, called her “emotional”, mentally ill.
    Complaint is still open.

    Not so fast, Mr. Scaramucci, CNN anything but classy
    June 24, 2017


    Not so fast, Mr. Scaramucci.

    There’s nothing the least bit “classy” about Fake News King CNN. There is no way the last nine months of their dissemination of the fake ‘Russians’ stole the election’ stories was any mistake.

    It is part of an ongoing Progressive’s Plot to take down President Donald Trump by any means possible.

    You, Sir, may be moving on but CNN NEVER will.

    “On Thursday evening, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a potentially explosive report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump. (Philly, June 24, 2017)

    “But by Friday night, the story was removed from CNN’s website and all links were scrubbed from the network’s social media accounts.

    “That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” CNN said in an editors note posted in place of the story. “Links to the story have been disabled.”

    Surely that statement begs the question: If the story did not meet CNN’s “editorial standards”, why was it posted in the first place?”

    CNN’s editorial standards, suspect for some time, peaked during the 2012 Obama-Romney presidential debate, when moderator Candy Crowley injected herself into the debate by real time ‘fact-checking’ in Obama’s favor his dishonest account of the motives behind the Benghazi attack, correcting Romney’s correct assertion: “For fourteen days he refused to call it an act of terror.”

    CNN editorial standards went downhill from there, peaking in the Trump campaign/Russian collusion fiction during the 2016 presidential election campaign.


    For whatever reasons CNN removed Scaramucci from under a cloud of suspicion in the Russia/Trump team collusion story—but what about the President?

    It’s not Scaramucci but the President who’s being trashed almost daily by “classy” CNN.

    The end of this story illuminates the editorial standards style of CNN by throwing in, out of the blue so to speak of the mysterious death of former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich:

    Who are CNN to ridicule the efforts of Hannity and Gingrich from trying to get to the bottom of Seth Rich’s death?

    The network should be apologizing to the American population who voted for President Trump, not just to the guy the media dubbed as “Mooch”.

        Spot on Black Knight! In the immortal words of General Powell (so frequently repeated during the Iraq War): “you break it, you own it.” Healthcare is broken, all the GOP needs to do is compare health care in 2009 to health care in 2017 and the votes will line up. Go old school, play the sweet words spoken by President Obama, keep you doctor, keep your plan, $2,500 in savings, revenue neutral, etc. and the votes will line up. Play Nancy Pelosi not reading the bill before voting on it. Repealing ObamaCare is why 90% of sitting Republicans were elected. Have they forgotten?

    Breaking News, WH says Assad is preparing a new chemical attack.
    This is why yesterday’s Sy Hersh report published by Welt, in Germany is so crucial.
    There never was a chemical attack and US Intel knows it.
    They lied to Trump.
    Use your brain. Assad is winning big all over Syria. He’s winning. He has no reason whatsoever to do anything like use chemicals.

    Read the Sy Hersh report. Here’s one source of it: http://thesaker.is/seymour-hersh-leaks-the-true-story-about-the-pseudo-chemical-attack-in-khan-sheikhoun-must-read/

    This is all another false flag for the US to try to destroy Assad’s regime.
    The three days of attacks on the Golan by Israel are more of this phony. lying warmongering.
    Israel is protecting al Nusra terrorists on the Golan.

    And factor in this: the G20 is coming and the neocons are demanding Trump not meet with Putin.
    A phony chemical attack is all they have left. Syria is being won by Syria, Russia and Iran with Turkey.

    Trump has been fed bad Intel for months.

    • Hi Michele Actually Japanese health care sucks… I have a pal who was a English teacher there… and it’s really the worst kind of care so she came back to the USA to receive acupuncture and other things. She’s lucky to have had some mediocre Obamacare when she got home… even if that is not the best. Single payer is best… It’s not Canadian… It’s humane.
