    If Sessions is going to be replaced Tom Fitton should be the AG and his staff at Judicial Watch should all become employees of the DOJ. There is no one more honorable than Tom Fitton and JW.

    Paul Ryan bashes Trump today but look what he is doing or not doing in the House. They are leaving town for the month of August. Unbelievable!

    http://jamiedupree.blog.ajc.com/2017/07/23/republicans-face-critical-week-in-congress-on-health-care-russia-2018-spending/

    5. House will leave town without passing all 12 funding bills. For weeks, House GOP leaders and rank-in-file lawmakers have told reporters that they were certainly going to have action on all twelve funding bills for the federal government. Reporters tried not to laugh out loud, knowing full well that was not likely. After this week, the House will be gone from Washington until Labor Day, and the plan is to jam four of the twelve funding bills into one package, and pass them in what’s known as a ‘minibus’ (the smaller version of the omnibus). Funding bills for the military, VA, energy and water programs, and the Legislative Branch (Congress) will be in that plan – but eight other bills will not voted on this week. And yet, the House will go home for five weeks. As you can see, a lot of budget work has not been done in both the House and Senate. Unfortunately, that has become standard procedure no matter which party is in charge.

    6. One odd provision in the minibus. One interesting choice made by Republicans this week is that the House will vote on money to build the border wall backed by President Trump – but not the underlying bill that funds the Department of Homeland Security. A provision for $1.6 billion to start work on the wall along the border with Mexico is part of the “Make America Secure” minibus appropriations bill – but the plan to actually fund Homeland Security operations won’t be voted on by the House – until after Labor Day. You can see the House schedule – a rare five day legislative work week is scheduled this week for the House, and then lawmakers head back home for five weeks.

    I still believe that not only should Preibus be fired but so should McMasters…he is PUSHING for more troops in Afghanistan. HELL NO. PTrump wants to know WHY we have been there for 17 years? Good question…Mattis has been holding back sending added troops. McMasters is a War Hawk and we are talking the Mother of all Hell Holes…Afghanistan.

    CNN is reporting that Tillerson has been discussing leaving the position with people close to him outside of Washington, however he appears to be determined to finish out at least a year on the job.

    But two inside sources indicated to the network that the move could come sooner, citing “a noticeable increase in the secretary’s frustration” with the White House.

      I read a couple of reasons One, TRex felt his public drubbing of Sessions was “unprofessional” Two, this Russia thing has now gone into dealings with Exxon Mobil and he doesn’t want to be pulled in and Three he isn’t happy with the way the WH is going over his head on issues.

            Did Tillerson not have a big fight with DeStefano and Jared was there..? Yes he has been stopped bringing in Obama’s left overs in as his assistence and had a big fight over it. He said Trump promised him he could pick his own people.
            . I read Kushner said it was unprofessional the way Tillerson behaved.There are leaks to report to the media. Yes people blow up and settle things and the media should not be in on it.
            Of course it all could be fake news and I take it with a grain of salt.

          Was just thinking the same thing. I’ve approved of Tillerson so far, but he works under the person I voted to for to lead the country. His reputation would be mud if he let the State Dept., of all agencies, to affect his decision. We all know it’s full of hold-overs and has been found of hiring 30-ish Ivy League women who believe the military’s only reason for being is Responsibility to Protect (R2P). But the “mud” wouldn’t affect his future; he’s too deep into the Old Boys’ Club not to come out on top and counting his cash.

        It IS definitely time for some toughness. PDT tried the “she’s been through enough already” with the Hillary-Loretta-James-Clapper-Brenner-Rice-and-Powers crowd and got nothing but disrespect. The left is like islam once again in that they see tolerance as weakness.

        Time to go out to the people on an even more regular basis than he is now, to talk UNsoftly while he carries that big stick called the Law. I was all for Sessions and his priority of trafficking and sex crimes (and the part immigration plays in it, of course.) But — yes, PDT does have the legal right to hire and fire; his underlings do not. Maybe Sessions needs to go in favor of a tough guy….(Oh, no, now don’t think I’m falling into the Sessions-bashing trip)…someone who will point out the bizarre fact that all these criminals on the left side are PROVEN to be guilty and still walking around free while all the R’s go to trials and hearings based on hear-say.

        I think we’re all ready to accept that it’s going to stink the whole country up, but that theswamp must be drained before our entire Republic gets sucked into it and swallowed up. (As Ben Franklin warned, we have “a republic…if you can keep it.)

    Picture no Sessions, no Rex, Reince out, McMasters replaced, and Mueller and RR fired.
    You think DJT will survive that kind of upheaval?
    He will never get one thing through the Senate and Congress. Period.
    He is surrounded by enemies. The agenda is to get him out, put in Pence and Ryan and out Lib the Dems except for War and sanctions.

    Already half the voters don’t like DJT.
    Doesn’t matter what we feel or think.

    Trump has to think of legislation first. Get the Tax cuts, forget reform of tax code. Get repatriation.
    Move the economy. Doesn’t matter that the Markets are up 4 Trillion. That’s not circulating in the economy and it is not in paychecks, savings accounts and wallets.

    Jobs, jobs, jobs. Not Sessions, Sessions, Sessions.

    And send McMaster off, don’t fire him. He’s active duty. Send him to AFRICOM and he can hunt down Somalis before they come here to shoot White women in pajamas in Minneapolis.

    As for Rex, I think the story doesn’t hold water. He would be called into any investigation of Exxon-Mobil with the Russians no matter what job he held. He has the deepest relationship of any American with the Russians and Putin. They gave him a medal. Friend of Russia medal.

    Rex’s last big thing was moving into the Qatar mess and helping calm that down.
    I have not read a thing from other sources about him being unhappy. He might be upset over nominations for his ambassadors going so slowly. And the WH has no urgency. Where are the tweets about that? 11 years to get everyone through at the pace they are going, so says a Senator.
    I think this REx stuff is smoke blown by trouble makers like the Texas Bush clan who hate Trump.

    Half the leaks are not really leaks. They are phony gossip spread as leaks.

    I talked to a friend who works in the WH and she heard shouting with Bannon and Reince.
    Sounds good, eh? Spread it.

    Today was a great Leadership day. I saw a Leader. I don’t see a President. A President has power. He wouldn’t be begging and shaming the Senate to kill Obamacare if he had power. But he is a great Leader. He stood in front of those families and showed the nation he cares and will fight for them until he wins. Then at the Boy Scouts. It was all about Leadership. He owned them all. Those kids are his forever. Leadership.

    Trump needs to keep at it every day. Lead, lead, lead.

    They can mess with the President. They can’t stop the Leader.

    How Algorithms Can Help Beat Islamic State

    “You can’t blame the message on the medium, not exactly. But maybe, all things considered, arming everyone with pocket supercomputers, and then filtering most of human experience through social-media feedback loops, wasn’t the greatest idea.

    America recently endured the most electronic and media-saturated presidential campaign in memory, with its hacks, private servers, secret videotapes, fake news, troll armies and hour-by-hour internet outrage across all platforms. And however glorious modern communications may be, they’ve also empowered a cast of goons, crooks and jihadists to build audiences and influence world-wide.”

      I know, I know. There will be earth-shaking tantrums and accusations of everything to a massacre to a coup to treason to a totalitarian state…but the left doesn’t do anything but tantrum anyway (and spread false rumors — there’s no way half the people in the country don’t like Trump and his policies). People who care enough to even vote in the mid-terms cut the cord or killed their TV’s long ago..

      On that last subject of false rumors– read in a 5-year-old political book today about Politico telling the author they like to “push the news stories.” Author went on to clarify it means to say “Word is…” in Politico, with a rumor following it and then use that as the springboard….the basis for follow-up stories, which, of course, the rest of the Journolist pack reprints and builds upon (often with that great, overworked lead “The such-and-such story continues to plague the President as today…..”

    People need to understand, this is a swamp coup and we need to get the out let Congress, FBI, DOj, media before they setup or fake the fake charge that that they will use free Comey and the will sell as proof against Trump.
    OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE
    THEY ARE ATTACKING TRUMP WITH EVERY
    MEDIA, CONGRESS, ALL THE CLINTON AND OBAMA ANTAGONIST THE TRYING TO PROVOKE HIM. Some how they have prevented Sessions from playing offense and Trump put his in DOJ Because:
    INSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE
    CONGRESS IS RUNNING DOJ
    Trump and his staff are in a mine field
    That’s why Ryan and all Congress say they won’t defend him. Think back to the snake Attorney General hiring Mueller with Comey every news agency, lawyers and pundits Saying that may be illegal. The investigation begins and leaks start and everything leaked was covered by media. All of leaks could be illegal. Trump supporters fire Mueller and the enemy. Congress tried to trigger Trump to fire him and Dirt Republican smiling it his DOJ. Yep, BRENNAN it is coup to take down the President. Almost forgot WILL TRUMP PARDON HIMSELF, Trump hadn’t even brought it up and Congress and media discussed until Trump answers with a tweet. Trump must know because we all wanted him to attack. Hammer Congress and media. PAUL RYAN
    TELL BRENNAN ABOUT THE COUP.
