      NO way in HELL should anyone have the right to spy on a candidate. This should especially be true when that someone is using it for political means like Rice and the Democrats were trying to.

        The Issue is…using the vast resources of our Intel Agencies — to spy on citizens for purely political reasons.

        It is Abuse of Power times eleventy.

        There are Private Investigators out in the private sector, who make a living ‘spying’ on private citizens…for a myriad of reasons.
        Corporate, industrial or personal reasons.

        But using our official taxpayer-funded Intelligence Agencies…for personal gain…is an Outrage!

        There should be jail time for this.

          I know spying on people by the FBI & CIA has been going on since they became of government agency, but it does NOT make it legal or right.
          After Hoover retired or was it died, it came out that Hoover had huge files on many private citizens. A few of the most noted people he kept tabs on was Elvis & a few of the Kennedys.
          Remember when Obama was running in 2008 and he promised a more transparent government, However, all Obama did was escalate all the wrongs of previous administration, along with abusing the office of president.

    Found a hilarious article on 5 facts about illegal immigration from Pew. Very disingenuous in pushing their narrative that illegals aren’t as prevalent as claimed. They say there are 11 million as of 2015 and, of those, 8 million work taking only 5% of jobs from Americans. No biggee. But, if they’re saying 8 million work, that leaves only 3 million that we can assume are minors. When was the last time you saw an illegal family with none or only one child?

      We should re-name Pew as…Skewed Research.

      They are basically ‘research for hire’.
      You tell them what results you want…they create the ‘data’ to back it up.

      And it is closer to 30 million illegals in the country.
      Although, that figure is going down by the day, thanks to our President.

      Screw that–For the last decade border guards have been saying that crossings by Illegals have more than tripled, Actually they have said that every year it triples from the previous year. When Obamacare was being approved in Congress, the government themselves even said that they had over 25 million illegals who would not be given Obamacare. During 2010 Government agencies even admitted that the 25 million number was most likely only around 50% of the actual number of Illegals, since many illegals live way under the radar.
      For the last several years they have said that over 1,500 illegals have been crossing just the Texas/Mexican border; that is 45,000 monthly just on the Texas border. We all know that even though Arizona and California’s borders aren’t as big they are known for having a huge % of Illegals crossing their border. That means that for a long time Illegals that they are counting is over a couple of million yearly. Most border guards will also tell you that less than 1/2 of the illegals that cross are not calculated in any of the reports that are put out there.
      In 2015 the Mexican Ambassador alluded to 30 million illegals in the US.

    I’m beginning to think McCain coordinated this health stunt with McConnell to deliberately delay and ridicule President Trump’s healthcare program.

    Honestly, this stinks too much to be coincidental.

    What if McCain knew he had to undergo this procedure and waited until now to throw a monkey wrench into the vote? And Mitch knew about it and encouraged it.

    I do not trust any of them. They are all trying to diminish and oppose POTUS, from the congresscritters to some in his administration, like Cohn, not to mention the Hussein holdovers.

          The problem with the good people out there who really want to make a difference is that they don’t have the financial means to go up against the political machines of the GOP & DNC.
          If Trump had not been as rich as he was, I do believe that he would have been taken down in the first few primaries by the GOP machines. Do find it strange though that Trump’s campaign spending was barely 10% of what the other candidates spend..

    • While it is admittedly ironic that the vote on a major health care bill will be temporarily delayed by a medical emergency, I don’t believe Senator McCain knew ahead of time. Since he had three previous incidences of melanoma, he would have been placed by his doctors on a more frequent schedule of medical monitoring.

      One shouldn’t ever delay dealing with a clot right next to the brain. It’s serious.

        There’s something entirely too coincidental and theatrical about the way this is going down. Seems orchestrated. Like Mitch, Ryan, the entire RINO establishment never had any intention of pushing President Trump’s agenda.

        McCain is eager to get a victim card so his role in PeeGate will be tamped down.

        Mitch just wants to cover his butt with the announcement of extending the Senate for a couple of weeks.

        No one is lifting a finger to defend POTUS at all.

        Not one fothermiucker is touting his Europe trip accomplishments, his France trip, his economic pluses.

    This has been on my mind since POTUS went to the G-20. I have looked everywhere for mention of this and have found nothing . . . . nor did I see a video of a different meeting. We know POTUS is a considerate man and no one has mentioned this . . . the pictures of POTUS meeting Putin and shaking his hand was when they were seated. I may have missed it, but I never saw the initial (if there was one) greeting when they were standing. I think POTUS did this on purpose, to meet as ‘equals’ not one towering over the other. I think POTUS did not want to intimidate Putin by towering over him . . . . that is DJT’s style, not wanting to make people feel uncomfortable.

    “Americans across the board appear, on first take, to be well out of love with the new President. But the “small print” on the polls reveals something quite disturbing about the methodology of the group responsible.

    The poll was performed by AbtAssociates — a swamp dweller-staffed research and policy shop in Cambridge, MA.

    AbtAssociates board members include former Bob Dole, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood, World Bank, and Deloitte staffers. In other words, it is a microcosm of the party of Davos.”

    Given the amount of snowflakes we have in the media, I am working on a Libtard humor series. Here are some examples

    Recently 20 libtards watched the DNC’s strategy session on youtube. It was their largest audience since a Hillary rally. Come to think of it, they were the same 20 people
    Since ratings for CNN have fallen below Cartoon Channel’s ratings, I suggested to the libtards they replace Anderson Cooper with SpongeBob. The Squidward panel discussion was better than Ana Navarro
    The other day I printed out all of Don Junior’s emails and gave them to the libtards to discuss. I needed to borrow a few things from their cars.
    Over the weekend I played stump the libtards. The game lasted 10 seconds. They couldn’t answer any questions
    I had a white russian at the bar this weekend. The libtards thought I was colluding with the bartender.
    Libtards hate puzzles because they can’t put the pieces together the way they want.
    When I want to get libtards to leave here, I yell out Cernovich! Then they run to twitter.
    The avg age of libtard trolls who post here is 30. It would be younger if Soros could get Hillary to stop sh**posting at CTH. Truthfully though, it is hard to assess how old they are. NASA satellite images overstate their age.
    The incentive for CTR and Soros libtard trolls is they get another tab of LSD at lunch
    Libtard women love taking their kids to march in Gay Pride parades because they want them to be accepting of all people except the ones in the crowd that don’t approve of their lifestyle decisions.
    The problem with equal pay for women is that too many libtard women are protest marching during working hours
    Libtards hate Take Your Child to Work day because they have send them downstairs to the basement. Chances are good the child is an illegal anyways
    The problem with neverTrumpers is that when Pres Trump succeeds at something, they are forced to side with the libtards – which makes them two time losers.

    Ok I hope you enjoyed my humor. I’m trying to develop a large repertoire.

Lee said. “In addition to not repealing all of the Obamacare taxes, it doesn’t go far enough in lowering premiums for middle class families; nor does it create enough free space from the most costly Obamacare regulations.”

    BROKE: Maxine Waters’ Individual Campaign Contributions Dry Up, Owes Daughter Big $$$
    Despite Maxine Waters’ elevated profile following the election of Donald Trump, the Democrat Congresswoman is in financial despair. Campaign filings reveal Waters received a paltry $22,000 in individual contributions this year and owes her daughter $100,000 for political mailer services.

    The Washington Free Beacon reports:

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.), who has been considered a leader of the movement within Congress to “resist” Donald Trump, has received a little more than $20,000 in individual contributions to her campaign so far this year despite her elevated profile.

    Waters is also $100,000 in debt to her daughter, who runs a lucrative endorsement mailer operation for the campaign, filingsshow.

    Citizens for Waters, Rep. Waters’ campaign committee, reported receiving just $12,600 individual contributions throughout the second quarter, which runs between April 1 and June 30. During the first quarter, which spans from Jan. 1 to March 31, the campaign reported $9,508.79 in individual contributions. Waters has now pulled in just $22,108.79 in total individual contributions.

    Let those Republicans come out and say that they no longer will vote for REPEAL only! What will be their excuse. Will they say Obozocare is doing so well so I want it to remain. That way we have our list to primary their asses in 2018, 2020 and 2022.

    Our President should state that he will not pull his EO telling the IRS to process tax returns that leave box 61 empty. He should also state that he will veto any bill that requires American taxpayers to have to subsidize a carcass. Let the Senate and more importantly 19 Republican Senators join the 48 Democrats (2 of which are Independents) to override his veto.

    The Forgotten Men and Women will back him 100%! Our President has absolutely nothing and I mean nothing to lose doing so. This isn’t a fu……….king game. That is what these MORONS that call themselves Republicans think.

      Sorry Flep,

      But I honestly believed this would happen. Your site, and Sundance got me intrigued into the corruption within all facets of government. Not only in the U.S. But within other Western Democracies.

      This Uniparty term first introduced to me by Sundance truly opened my eyes.

      Sadly, the Republicans just may want to lose power. As the contempt for your President, and the MAGA agenda is palpable.

      The Republicans are using you fine folks in a way that is similar to the nonsense pulled on the Bernie supporters. Different in specifics, but the contempt for the supporters is the same.

      Look. I attended two rallies in WA State, and was in awe at the manners, and also the massive support shown by your President.

      I remember Mike Lees face at the RNC convention. He was apoplectic, and the crowd around him were obviously massive PDJT haters.

      Until the Republican voters get off their a**es and go after a few of these RINOS in their home towns. Then you are pi**ing in the wind.

      Maybe PDJT will go nuclear on some of these folks. If he does the people will back your President.

      I , like many n this site have experienced the passion of PDJT supporters, up and personal.

      The RINOS have never seen it turned on them..

      Is it not nearly time?

      Good bless PDJT

    I actually feel good about the healthcare situation in one sense…The party has shown very little support for the President and little is being accomplished on the big things..We are seeing nominations stalled at a level that shows collusion…It’s a disgrace they are allowing taxpayers to be fleeced and I regret that…I know many people being harmed…

    I personally like things brought to a head…They have no excuses..We still have the President and the republicans have lies and disingenuous rhetoric at best…They can’t blame the President and if they prop up Obamacare with the democrats then the Republican Party is over…

    There are two short pieces in the NY Times that are definitely worth your time, and will explain to you exactly what Our POTUS and DJT’s administration is all about.

    First – 15 Jul 2017 Going Around Trump, Governors Embark on Their Own Diplomatic Missions

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is exactly how our founders meant it to be. The states are the main providers for their constituents, not the federal government, especially not a centralized government. This is what the governors are supposed to be doing.

    If the governors want to join the Paris Climate Scam, have at it. More power to them. Good luck to them next election.

    Second – 17 Jul 2017 Tillerson’s Grand Renovation Plan in State Department Gets Assistance
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/17/world/tillerson-state-department-reorganization.html?rref=collection%2Fnewseventcollection%2FThe Trump White House

    The Trump Federal Government Renovation is moving ahead full steam. Our beloved T-Rex is doing State’s renovation quite loudly and in the open. Remember the Clinton 7th Floor Cartel members that were fired? Many top officials were not only not replaced, their departments, specifically the departments created by HR Clinton, have been abolished. Career, dedicated diplomat’s opinions have been sought, listened to, considered, and incorporated into the reorganization.

    Please, ignore the salacious gossip of the Fake News Cartel. They are not talking TO you. They are talking AT you.

    As we have been hearing here for years, the Fake News only talk to, and report on, each other. They not only do not know, they do not care, what we, the unwashed masses, think, or do with our lives. Their lives are dedicated to themselves and Crooked Hillary Clinton.

    Our POTUS does not talk often about inconsequential matters – have you noticed? There is a reason for that. Watch Our POTUS’ actions. Our POTUS tweets to US his own thoughts.

    Our POTUS is, as you may have noticed, an economic warrior for We The People. Our POTUS is not much into a Military confrontation – did you notice that the bombed Syrian airbase was emptied of personnel prior to bombing? But Our POTUS will engage militarily when it is necessary – see ISIS, the Middle East – and will allow our Military people to do what they do best – WIN.

    If you’ve any doubt that Donald J. Trump has realigned our world, have a look at this new policy group, The Alliance For Securing Democracy, specifically at their Advisory Council, whose members include Michael Chertoff, Bill Kristol, Mike Morell, Michael McFaul (ding ding ding), Mike Benghazi Rogers, and Jake Sullivan.
    http://securingdemocracy.gmfus.org/team/advisory-council

    This supposed Obamacare fight in The House/Senate is cynical planned opposition. Listen to what to Our POTUS tweets, then act accordingly. You know what to do.

    Is Donald J. Trump perfect? Nope.
    An ideal President? Do not make me laugh.
    Is Donald J. Trump doing the correct thing for We The People? You bet he is.

    In my world, in what used to be called the scientific intellectual elite, we never paid attention to the likes of Mr. Trump, nor much cared. (We were smart enough to realize we needed the guys on the floor to tell us the “how” of our ideas after we had told the guys on the floor the “why” of our ideas.) It took two full months, and much research, for me to get onboard with Donald J. Trump for President.

    In my world, one never, ever, jumps off a speeding train. Watch and learn, kids.
    (Odd Random Thought – a Big Thank You for the Incorrigible Deplorables at The Last Refuge for allowing me a voice. Except – there must be something terribly wrong with people who allow the likes of me in their ranks.)

    Watch the signs. Read critically. Pay attention to the small things and the details, the deep weeds, the one thing that someone says to you. Things are working exactly as planned. Yes, there is a plan, and has been for a very long time.
    And that is all I have to say about that. -.-

    I’m not astute enough to determine if the Senate’s failure to act in repealing and replacing ObozoCare is a prickly problem or not. However, I seem to recall, quite some time ago that PTrump tweeted something like “the best thing to do would be to let the ACA fail, which it will do, catastrophically. But I (PTrump) don’t want to put the people who rely on the ACA through that bad experience.”

    So, it seems that PTrump, at the time, was looking at the benefits letting the ACA fall on its own sword, but didn’t want the problems that would cause those people.

    Well, if nothing gets passed, that’s what we’ve got! Not necessarily a disaster!

    It is possible there is a hidden gem in the latest state department leak.

    Why were Bill Browder (Hermitage Fund), Kyle Parker (House Foreign Affairs), and Robert Otto (State Dept) passing around pictures of Veselnitskaya’s house the day she met Trump Jr?

    Supposedly Browder also worked for Ghislane Maxwell’s father at one time. You know, Epstein Lolita Island Ghislane but I can’t find confirmation of that even on his wiki page.

    Repeal is what they should have done in January.
    Repeal is the end of Obama’s prize creation.
    It’s good to repeal it.

    What comes hereafter, who knows? These clowns to could screw up a wetdream.
    But it actually empowers Trump.
    Anything stupid they do now will be suicidal to them personally.

    One of the problems is they talk about insurance like health care, and health care like insurance.
    These are separate. Some people will always need financial help with their healthcare delivery.
    Everyone needs competitive insurance rates and custom menus of desired services.
    Those are separate but integrated components.
    Most of the time no one discusses the topic correctly.

    Trump will clean it up.

      As an RN, I’m in the healthcare field. This past year I had to be on the receiving end of health care – needed and finally had reconstructive neck surgery – collapsing neck from auto accident 20 yrs ago. (Surgery was successful, and now in physical therapy, Thank God.)
      Until I finally got into the hands of good, caring physicians, it was like wandering in the wilderness – despite having excellent health insurance…Essentially “care” is now being delivered by big health corps (which bought up the majority of practices and all hospitals in my area, 8 in Tidewater area Virginia) and now it really doesn’t matter what kind of insurance you have, the restricted access, time limits- despite complex issues, and less referrals are being seen.

      Essentially, Obamacare says everyone has insurance (which millions now don’t have because they can’t afford the premiums or can’t afford to use because of high deductibles) – but the “care” is gone.

    The proper way to run Congress is they should have 2 20-day sessions. That’s 40 days to get everything done per year. Those 40 days, the military should block off K Street, and the Congress should only be allowed to talk to their constituent voters and their immediate family.

    This would cut the budget down by half, maybe more. And it would mean far less corruption.

    What expertise do they have? None.
    What reason do we have to trust them doing anything important (like oversight)? None.

    They are all useless, with a tiny few exceptions.

    Think about since Scalise was shot, most of the others have done no more than Steve, and he was fighting for his life in a hospital.
