    Article below about the renovations taking place in the WH. Towards the end of the article it says “and refurbishments in the Oval Office”. I hope that means we are going to see an end to the stripes! I know in the grand scheme of things this is minor, but they just scream Obama to me.

    2 + 2 = 4

    PDJT rails on Jeff Sessions 2 weeks ago. Why? Why then when he had already expressed disappointment over Sessions some 3 months ago? Why publicly and in NYTimes?

    Methinks PDJT and team knew Mueller was ramping things up and set targets on his family.

    Now, news of a Grand Jury. Senate enemies of the people trying to firmly cement Mueller.

    This is all so transparently obvious….. American people elect an outsider not part of political class with mandate to drain the swamp….. Swamp/political class threatened so they set up a BS Special Counsel to execute a coup. NOT A GOOD LOOK FOR THE US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. They will lose the American people over this and unlike the old USSR our ‘government’ will lash out violently when the people don’t follow their BS anymore.

        If the Grand Jury starts with the early meeting of Don Jr, Jared, Manafort and those others—Remember, PDJT wasn’t even the official nominee yet. And that meeting will open to GPS fusion–who are they? and the dossier? Who paid them? etc. Fusion has not been willing to cooperate. A GJ can compel the testimony. That will open a can of worms for the Dems and the R’s who were opposed to him, and were involved with the dossier.

        Jay S. indicated the President’s team is watching closely, will cooperate and will challenge when appropriate.

        I’d like to remind some folks that at the CPAC meeting, Steve Bannon told the folks, “If you think these people are going to give you your Country back without a fight, you are mistaken.”
        How is it that the Dems are stupid, yet we fear their ability to take out Trump?
        They are evil, and this is, after all, a spiritual battle.
        If we believe Trump was appointed by God why do we fear man?
        The people who are closest to Trump are very bright and have his back.
        What has happened to our faith in Trump? He is going about his business of working for America, and I for one have no reason to believe he is unaware of all the evil surrounding him.
        But dealing with this evil is delegated to some of the brightest legal minds in the Country.

      The swamp has to destroy Donald Trump and the movement he represents. The Grand Jury will send up some manufactured charge, the House will impeach, and the Senate will overwhelmingly vote to remove him.

      Too bad the left’s not having to play defense on the Clinton’s crimes as opposed to charging forward against us. If we had an attorney general worth anything that would be.

    I am wearily trying to make sense of the Grand Jury story. At first, I was conflating two stories. Mueller has a Grand Jury empaneled in Alexandria, Virginia and it is reviewing the Flynn affair, supposedly.

    Today’s story is about a new Grand Jury in DC allegedly something to do with Don Jr.

    But since Grand Juries are secret, it is all “sources say.” And coincidentally the stories from leaked sources appear on the day of a rally. At all costs the Silent Coup must prevent PDJT from gaining traction.

    And then the news that Lindsey Graham and once again into the breach Thom Tillis from NC and a bunch of Dims are introducing legislation that will prohibit the President from removing Mueller drives me almost to a frenzy. These creeps can’t do anything useful, or anything to MAGA, but boy howdy can they ever think up things to harm the President.

    I am tired. This crap wears on me. However, I am aware that this is WHAT IT IS MEANT TO DO. It is designed to erode support. While I am tired, I am also heartened by the constant stream of donations into PDJT. The polls like, but the money talks. We are still here, we still support our President. They can try, but they can’t change that.

      I’m tired, too. That said, there was an orchestrated effort again this morning to silence Sean Hannity on Twitter this morning related to his stance on Mueller. Then a few hours later, a leak about a grand jury.

      When the left ramps up the scare tactics, it is ALWAYS in an effort to distract from something they are responsible for.

      Hey Sylvia, Take a deep breath and try to relax. Psychological exhaustion is part of their game plan. You clearly see what’s going to happen and can ignore the small distractions. All subversive movements create chaos in order to justify their taking over to “restore order”. The future has already been predetermined and the globalists will try to take over.

      Now is the time to prepare with calm resolve and determination.

      I do not believe the legislation they want to pass is constitutional. This is not a congressional assigned special counsel. It was assigned by the executive branch and therefore can be fired by the executive branch. The legislative branch cannot come in and tell the executive they cannot fire one of their employees.

      It would be like PT telling congress they must replace the Speaker of the House. Separation of Powers rules here.

    I’m not sure how Grand juries work, other than to know you can indictment a ham sandwhich.

    My understanding is that it is a way for investigative prosecution lawyers to be granted legal tools to obtain evidence and make their case for charges.

    They don’t present any evidence from the defense side.

    So, it will be interesting to see if Don Jr or Kushner end up giving testimony to the Grand jury. That would indicate they are witnesses of a crime, not targets of criminal activity wouldn’t it?

    I wonder if the Russian lawyer will attempt to leave the country any time soon? Look for that too.

    Don’t forget….the day Mueller was fired there was no investigation of Trump nor high members of his Adm.

    Also, both Kushner and Don Jr ( with criminal lawyers representing them) volunteered testimony to Congress. If they were guilty of a crime they would not have testified. No way.

    This just seems to be more about something else like FARA and Fusion gps to me.

    Once the President is absolved of the fake news Russia accusation by Grand Jury, investigations will lead to collusion by the Democrat Party and Pickled Billiary with Russian players. I’m only concerned that this might not happen if Mueller was involved with Pickles and the Uranium sale unless he was an unwilling participant and now wants to clear the air and his role.

        It is character assassination and innuendo reporting, as Muh Russia has been all along.

        The CNN report on “financial crimes” likely has to do with someone such as Manafort or Flynn (probably to see if they may have been financially compromised and thus possibly influence-able by Russia), yet the blurb reads like it could mean Trump is in trouble.

        A farce.

        It’s possible the ‘financial crimes’ could involve another Trump not at the WH (like Don Jr), but my guess is it’s about someone else.

        As several have said above (including Sekulow), no reason to think that the president is under investigation here himself.

    Joe Arpaio, former sheriff in Arizona, is found guilty of criminal contempt
    July 31, 2017

    Joe Arpaio, the Arizona lawman who once proclaimed himself “America’s toughest sheriff” and was largely praised by conservatives for his hard-line policing tactics, was found guilty Monday of criminal contempt, bringing his tenure as a relentless crusader against illegal immigration to an end.

    More than a month after lawyers wrapped up closing arguments, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton found Arpaio guilty for defying a judge’s 2011 court order to refrain from racially profiling Latinos during patrols and turning them over to federal immigration authorities.

    The 85-year-old is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 5 and could face up to six months in jail.

    A massive fire has engulfed the fifth tallest residential building in the United Arab Emirates, the 86-story Dubai Torch Tower – the same building which was also damaged in a major blaze in 2015 – where social media footage showed flames spreading up much of building and burning debris falling down. According to BBC, civil defence officials have “successfully evacuated” the building and are now working to bring the fire under control.

    An Indiana soldier who was just 32 days into his first deployment was one of two American service members killed in a suicide bombing attack in Afghanistan, military officials confirmed Thursday.

    Mark Hunter said members of the Indiana National Guard informed him Wednesday night that his son, 23-year-old U.S. Army Sgt. Jonathon Michael Hunter, died in the attack on a NATO convoy near the southern Afghan city of Kandahar.

    The Department of Defense confirmed the deaths Thursday night. Officials also identified the second soldier killed as Army Spc. Christopher Michael Harris, 25, of Jackson Springs, North Carolina.

    The U.S. military in Afghanistan earlier said that four other American troops were wounded in Wednesday’s attack.
