      I find Dobbs to generally be in the know. After all how hard is it, we generally are. He is just honest enough to report it. Shows how in the tank the nearly entire rest of the Fox network is in that they pretend not to know.

      Today, I was particularly struck by all the analysts with furrowed brows wondering why repeal and replace isn’t getting done.

      Simple and only answer is neither the house repubs nor the senate repubs want a decent repeal and replace bill to be passed. There is no other answer.

      • from the Hill article above-

        Rohrabacher said he received a package of documents as he was ending a meeting in the Russian legislative body known as the Duma.

        “At the end of the meeting simply as I was walking out, they said this gentleman has some documents for you. And he handed them to me. And that was as far as my meeting with the prosecutors went,” he said. “We got the information, we looked at it and we asked various people about the issue.”

        Rohrabacher, a former Ronald Reagan speechwriter who has held his seat in Orange County since 1988, said he shared the derogatory information with members of the Foreign Affairs Committee and the U.S. Treasury Department.

        He said he believed both he and Trump’s son did the right thing by accepting the meetings and the Russian information,

    I realize this is from politico. But I wonder how far they will let him go on this

    The co-founder of a political and corporate intelligence firm behind an explosive dossier alleging Russian intelligence influence over President Donald Trump will not testify next week in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to two sources familiar with his plans.
    The committee on Wednesday announced a July 19 hearing that listed Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal investigative reporter, as a witness. His inclusion raised the specter of public testimony about the dossier’s seamy and contested claims of sexual misconduct and a years-long Kremlin conspiracy to get Trump elected.
    But the request for Simpson to appear was voluntary, and it’s unclear whether the committee will seek to compel his testimony.

        That and he has damaging information about the clinton campaign. He’ll be protected and not compelled to testify. Our good conservative repubs who control those committees will ensure that.

    There is something very important that many people here and most people who follow the ‘fake news’ are missing. Please keep in mind that President Trump is a genius who loves tacking ‘impossible’ problems and who has been planning his Presidency for MANY YEARS! The reason I got banned from commenting on ABC and CBS is that I was dropping truth bombs the Libtards did not want to hear. The TRUTH is President Trump is doing just great and he knows it;) Sessions is too darn busy right now to waste his time and draw the FAKE NEWS and UNIPARTY oppositions wraith …. he is cleaning up the criminal elements like the Medicaide fraud, scammers, illegals, pedofile rings, etc, etc, etc…. Secretary Kelly is cleaning up the illegals and MS-13 (Sessions helping here too). Mattias is defeating ISIS. Ross is making deals to bring business back. EPA regs are getting cut by the score and business is booming. Energy is being EXPORTED for the first time in years and years. THESE are the things that the AVERAGE AMERICAN CITIZEN is going to NOTICE!! Who gives a fat rat’s butt what the Libtards are saying or doing or believing due to the Kool-Aid they drink? The bottom line is they can RESIST all they want but RESISTANCE IS FUTILE! When gas prices fall, grocery prices fall, health insurance is affordable again (and THE PEOPLE know THAT is NOT Trump’s fault it is being delayed), when the WALL gets started, infrastructure gets updated …. these things will increase President Trump’s base even more! President Trump KNOWS what he can get done DESPITE the SWAMP!! And he KNOWS that when he produces those things the AVERAGE MAN will notice! Trust me …. President Trump has this!!! God Bless President Donald J. Trump!

      Yeah, the weasels from hell are trying to Sabotage our President…to keep him from getting anything done.
      They want to be able to claim that he hasn’t done anything!

      But in spite of all their sabotage, he is getting a lot done.
      And the evil enemedia is doing everything they can to keep avoid reporting on it.

      Thank you for fight the good fight.

    I am reposting this article – this is HUGE. Rohrabacher is a respected and long-time Rep. This is going to blow up in the media’s face, again, as I predicted, because the truth is starting to come out that supports Donald Trump, Jr.

    Trump Jr. pitch was part of broad Russian effort

    So, are the media and the Dems going to call it Treason on Rohrabacher as they did for Donald Trump, Jr.? Are they going to demand that Rohrabacher testify now too?

      You can bet Rohrabacher wasn’t the only member of Congress to be contacted by the Russians and the lawyer Rush affectionately calls “The Honeypot”. The Deep State always thinks that each new narrative will finally get the president, but they all fail because the trails always leads back to them. These folks are in pure panic and their concocted conspiracies to try and bring down the president get less and less believable with each telling. The Deep Staters are acting pretty much like fugitives on the run. They’re desperately trying to evade capture by throwing out these fake narratives to try and slow the president down. The DS knows if the American people ever get the full truth of what has been done to this country there will be hell to pay, so their games of evasion will continue indefinitely. Mr. President there is no doubt you have a plan, and I hope soon you’ll be bringing the thunder and dropping the hammer on all of these people!

    Clinton’s Arkanscide another threat

    Republican donor and operative from Chicago’s North Shore who said he had tried to obtain Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from Russian hackers killed himself in a Minnesota hotel room days after talking to The Wall Street Journal about his efforts, public records show.

    In a room at a Rochester hotel used almost exclusively by Mayo Clinic patients and relatives, Peter W. Smith, 81, left a carefully prepared file of documents, which includes a statement police called a suicide note in which he said he was in ill health and a life insurance policy was expiring.

    • This just doesn’t add up to me…

      If you’re going to kill yourself, why would you do it hundreds of miles away from your home in an obscure Minnesota hotel room? If you know it’s your last night to live, why are you spending it printing papers in the hotel’s business center? If you were going to kill yourself, why would you do it at 1:17pm right in the middle of the day? If asphyxiation was your plan, why wouldn’t you do it while you slept? The report mentions two tanks of helium, but only the purchase of a “Helium Jumbo”, where did the other tank come from? Finally, if you are writing a suicide note why would you ever take the time to say “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER” was involved in your death? Wouldn’t you be busy apologizing to your family, etc.?

      Very suspicious!

    Trump personal attorney Marc Kasowitz lashes out at critic in email: ‘Watch your back’
    Jul 13, 2017, 5:48 PM

    President Trump’s personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, used profanities to lash out at a stranger who in an email urged him to resign, according to a report Thursday.

    ProPublica, which published a critical story Tuesday of Kasowitz said that a retired public relations professional who asked not to be identified saw a segment on MSNBC describing the piece, and sent the lawyer an email with the subject line: “Resign Now.”

    Kasowitz replied with series of messages. One read: “I’m on you now. You are fucking with me now Let’s see who you are Watch your back, bitch.”

    In another email, Kasowitz wrote: “Call me. Don’t be afraid, you piece of shit. Stand up. If you don’t call, you’re just afraid.”

    He later wrote: “I already know where you live, I’m on you. You might as well call me. You will see me. I promise. Bro.”

    The man told ProPublica that he forwarded Kasowitz’s emails to the FBI so there would be a written record in case Kasowitz followed through on the threat.

    A spokesperson for Kasowitz issued a statement Thursday acknowledging that Kasowitz wrote the threatening emails and plans to apologize to the man:

    “Mr. Kasowitz, who is tied up with client matters, said he intends to apologize to the writer of the email referenced in today’s ProPublica story. While no excuse, the email came at the end of a very long day that a 10 pm was not yet over. ‘The person sending that email is entitled to his opinion and I should not have responded in that inappropriate manner,'” Mr. Kasowitz said. “‘I intend to send him an email stating just that. This is one those times where one wishes he could reverse the clock, but of course I can’t.'”

    Someone recently emailed this to me so I can’t take credit. A bit long, but one worth the time:

    Our home is in a community of 2,000 homes located on the inter coastal in North Carolina. Everything lives here. Alligators. Water moccasins. Rattle snakes. Sea hawks. Egrets. Giant blue heron.Mosquitoes… blood sucking mosquitoes. We’ve watched from our back porch as dolphins chased sail boats and motor boats up the inter coastal and watched the moon rise over the ocean to cast its glow over the inter coastal.

    When the community decided to drain the swamp in the center of the community, it was a big deal.

    Draining the swamp was messy. The swamp was about 10 football fields, about 6 feet deep, with lots of creatures living in it. It was a dangerous swamp. Not one that you would walk or swim. You would not dare sit next to it in the dark of a moonless night. If not the snakes, then the mosquitoes would eat you alive.

    As the water level decreased, the creatures were exposed. As the water level disappeared, all that was left was 3 feet of yucky black mud and the roots to dying cypress trees. The fish, snakes, frogs, rats, and birds were all stranded in the yucky mud.

    Those creatures of the swamp fought for their lives as the swamp disappeared. The fish flopped around in the black mud looking for some water for life. The frogs croaked incessantly all night while their young pollywogs were stranded lifeless at the top of the black mud. Snakes slithered in every direction in the black mud in search of food. The rats that live in hollows all along the water abandoned their nests while the birds that feed off the swamp creatures also abandoned the area.

    Finally, the mud dried out. No more snakes. No more rats. No more fish. No more frogs. No more mosquitoes. And no more birds that feed off those creatures of the swamp.

    That same thing is happening to the political swamp in America. Trump is draining the swamp. His picks for his cabinet are all swamp drainers. Yeah, 3 are from Goldman Sachs. 3 of 23. Practically all of his cabinet have executive experience (military, or government, or private sector) .. and it is the executive branch, now isn’t it?

    The mud is becoming visible as all the creatures who live in the swamp are fighting for their lives.
    Government employees at the IRS, EPA, and Education are flapping in the mud like dying fish. The lobbyists are slithering here and there looking for government funds like the snakes in the mud … especially those who wrote Obamacare. The liberal media cartel is chirping and croaking all the time like frogs trying to reverse the draining. The tax and spend politicians are dying off like the blood sucking mosquitoes. The political appointees of Obama are fleeing DC for other jobs like the birds who lost their meal tickets. And the information leakers like Comey and Lynch are looking for new places to nest like the rats that left the swamp. Soon, all that will remain will be the dying institutions like public education as the dying cypress trees of our society.

    Everyone who lived off the swamp is praying for rain. Election rain so Democrats might win some
    elections from Republicans since the Democrats suffered such horrible defeats during the 8 years of Obama. Impeachment rain so the professional politicians can get rid of Trump as the swamp drainer. Low approval rating rain so the media can claim they were correct about Trump. Virtual rain, fake rain, so pundits can claim that Trump is not making any progress even though the results say the opposite.

    Draining the swamp is messy, muddy. But the mud will soon dry. Democrats just lost special
    elections in Arkansas and Omaha after sinking millions into them. Democrats might grab an election here or there in places like Georgia where the demographics are changing to black communities, but not without millions and millions of campaign money … and Democrats cannot afford to do that for all the elections in 2018. Democrats must defend 23 Senators in 2018 as compared to 10 for Republicans and Democrats must win 25 seats in the US House from Republicans and then win back 900 state legislative seats and 14 governorships. If Georgia is an example, that will cost Democrats hundreds of millions to try.

    SCOTUS will be rendering its decisions about Trump executive orders just before the 2018 elections … and more than likely, SCOTUS will rule against the Obama appointed judges who live in the lower court swamps. SCOTUS will help Trump.

    Comey is gone. Lynch is in trouble. Clinton is back in trouble. The Clinton Foundation donors are talking. Clapper and Yates both said that there is no evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians.

    Schumer is gasping for rain like one of those stranded fish. His Republican swamp buddies like McCain will abandon him as he dies … a rat leaving the swamp even though they shared an apartment together. His Wall Street swamp buddies cannot help him. The Washington Post and The New York Times and CNN and NBC are all trying to seed the clouds. But none of it is producing enough rain to help Schumer stop Trump from draining the swamp.

    Draining the swamp is loud. Listen to all the hysterical liberal media cartel who are trying to make
    it rain in order to save the swamp where they live. Chanting. Lies. Rain dances. But no real rain is coming. Only fake rain. The swamp will soon be dry. And when it is, then the next task to make America great again can begin.

    Translation from Polish:
    Warsaw: Iranian devastated the church. He was stopped by the police
    – July 11, 2017

    The 37-year-old Iranian was detained by police from Mokotow for suspicion of damage to the window frame and windows in one of the Jesuit churches.

    The Iranian citizen stopped in front of the church building and then, for no reason, started kicking his foot against the window, causing damage of over 2,000 zlotys [538.6$]. At the request of the police and the prosecutor of Mokotów [a neighborhood in Warsaw], the court gave him 3 months’ detention.

    The police arrived a few minutes after reporting the devastation of the church by a tall man with olive complexion. Having an initial description, they followed the suspect. He was stopped a few streets away.

    He had been arrested, had no documents with him. With the help of an interpreter, the officers determined that the detainee had Iranian citizenship.

    Mokotow court, at the request of the police and the prosecutor, applied to him a 3 month detention. He may face up to 5 years imprisonment.
