      It’s really incredible. I just moved from California (after 30 years) to South Carolina. To get a South Carolina driver’s license I needed a certified copy of my birth certificate ($60 and had to send for and wait 10 days, as my hospital original birth certificate was unacceptable), two forms of address, social security card and California license.

        You will love to drive in South Carolina. We have a vacation place up there and one of the pleasures of the time we spend there is to drive around enjoying the fellow drivers. In California most of the people drive like hell and one never knows where is the next one going to come to hit you..

      Been here 47 years, and it is unreal to experience the conversion of this great state into a paradise for the Cult of Liberalism. For everyone else, it is Purgatory.

        It started with (then governor) Earl Warren. After he started California on the road to perdition, he then twisted the US Supreme Court into the progressive mess it is.

        I grew up in Kalifornistan, and in the 50s and 60s the garbage we were taught in school was similar to what Europe has now. We’ve been gone 30 years, and when we visit on vacation, it’s appalling. Just when you think they can’t get worse, they do. And they’ve Jerry(Brown)mandered the voting districts and laws to make it a permanent one-party (indeed Marxist) state. It breaks my heart to see what has happened to the once-Golden State…

        I have family and friends there, some of whom are diehard liberals, and they live in a different world: one of unicorns, pixie dust, and moonbeams. Liberalism is indeed a mental disease. Can’t talk or reason with them at all, as they lack any semblance of logical faculties, and cannot see that actions have consequences (cf the Three Thugateers from UCLA)…

        • Regina, I hope you are not serious by “I don’t like the idea of our citizens facing charges in another country”. If these players committed a crime they are accused of in China then they have actually brought disrespect to our country.
          I am an immigrant and now a citizen but whenever I see anybody from my native country behaving inappropriately it irritates me, because, being a foreigner, you are not only representing yourself but also your home country and your behavior reflects in a bad or good way towards the reputation and values of your country.
          I may be old school but in my book, my bad behavior gives bad name to my family when among friends. If I am representing my school, then it gives bad name to my school. If I am representing my state then it gives a bad name to my state. If I am a tourist in another country then I am representing my country and my bad behavior is giving bad name to my country.

            all true – so you think it was okay that Otto Warmbler died because he tore a poster off a wall? According to most accounts, died after a long period of torture? This is the sort of thing I’m talking about – what may start out as a crime turns into a political weapon.

            I have no problem with them facing justice – but I want them to do it in the U.S.

            • Regina, you are mixing two things but I will play along – if the sentencing of Otto was same as the native North Korean will get for the same crime then yes I will have no problem. But that was not the case with Otto so naturally we cannot compare two situations to be same. Not everything is political from my point of view – sometimes it is as simple as a crime was committed for which a sentencing is merited as per local laws and jurisdiction. I am sure even in the U.S. we do not let anybody go for shoplifting simply because (s)he is a “visitor” to our country. I know for certain that depending on the nature of crime(s) they actually have to first serve time here and then are deported for good.
              You are suggesting that they should face justice here in the U.S – How in the world is U.S. going to prosecute these three “gentlemen” for crimes committed in China?

                We let many people escape punishment exactly because they are illegal immigrants.
                I have a friend on disability. trust me – he is disabled. Well, he had just managed to scrape money together for a car, and was going to his volunteer job. An illegal immigrant hit his car.

                LEO arrived. LEO noted that my friend’s “uninsured driver” insurance coverage would cover the damages, but nothing would happen to the other driver. Why? Because it was apparent that the other driver was an illegal immigrant, and ticketing or “booking” the illegal immigrant would be way more trouble than it was worth – often, illegal immigrants have, or go get, yet another on-paper, legal “identity,” and also get released quickly from local jail.

                Sadly, when illegal immigrants may need the protection of the courts or LEO, such as if raped, they do not have good access to the legal system.

                Supporting illegal immigration by “opposing hate” and turning a blind eye is simply bad, in many ways. Humanitarians should not support our blind-eye, two-class society approach. If there were actually a “Democratic Party,” I would say we democrats should not support this. But there really is no dem party.

In no way this should be applauded as an accomplishment – it would have been an accomplishment if they were wrongfully arrested but by all accounts it seems that this is legit arrest.

    To me, the stark difference between the Poseur Obozo and President Trump can be clearly characterized by their performances in throwing out the first pitch at baseball games.

    The Poseur jauntily trots out of the dugout and glad hands on his way to the mound. Obviously basking in the attention of the moment, waving, laughing and grinning, he takes a loose set position on the pitching rubber, does a couple of half pumps, waggles the ball and glove a few times in front of him, lifts his right leg and throws the ball to the left (of course), several feet away from the plate, and very high . . . almost an uncatchable wild pitch, way outside the strike zone.

    In stark contrast, “The Donald” (with Melania) lands in center field with his shiny TRUMP helicopter (as far as I know, PTrump hasn’t thrown out a first pitch as President), an entrance typical and befitting of the brash, self-made, billionaire super-builder. After a few meetings and greetings, he walks to the mound and, without breaking stride, throws a hard pitch, center plate, dropping below the strike zone at the last . . . the kind of pitch you think you can hit, until it drops low and you’re left with “Strike One” ringing in your ears.

    There are a number of specific analogies that could be drawn here, but I’ll stick with a some general observations.

    Obozo’s terms in office were characterized by his obvious posing, his love of himself and the attention he was getting, his shallow attempt at appearing statesmanlike, his total absorption with appearance rather than substance, and his utter failure, in all facets of his presidency, of coming anywhere near successfully hitting the mark in a government that is supposed to be “for the people”. Obozo’s ultimate objective is not winning for the team, it’s winning for Obozo. He was, in short, a self-absorbed, grinning, ineffective fool.

    President Trump, conversely, is a natural, successful and proven leader who has no need of focusing on appearance over substance. He enters the game to play hardball . . . throwing strikes and getting hits . . . lots of home runs, too. When he reaches the mound, he sees only his objective, throwing the pitch he desires to the catcher.

    The baseball metaphor fails with PTrump however, as the objective in baseball is to beat the other team. PTrump’s objective is to play the game so that both teams emerge as winners. Then, after the game, with an improved relationship, both teams go out, together, for celebratory ice cream . . . two scoops for PTrump, please.

    In the future, any honest historian will be characterizing the Trump Presidency as one of the most remarkable and successful in the history of the United States.

    What an absolutely refreshing, blessed difference!!!

    If we can get enough honest conservatives elected in 2018 maybe we can get a National Voter ID Law passed before the 2020 election.

    But how do we ensure an honest election in 2018? If a month before the election President Trump issued an Executive Order that says all people who want to vote must show a valid picture id. I know the cheaters would just run to court and get it stayed, but could we run faster and get a judge to say it can not be stayed for 35 days or something?

    What if President Trump declared a National Emergency and said that invaders are going to try and steal our country right out from under us via illegal voting and so National Security demands we require a picture id in order to vote. He could say 17 intelligence agencies gave him the assessment. And finger die would help prevent those legally entitled to vote once from doing it twice.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful to just once see how the real America votes.

  18. From the testimony Rice gave, the unmasking was for purely personal reasons.
    From what has been discovered so far, that dossier was bought and paid for and then used to get the FBI and everyone else to investigate PT. All based on a lie.

    Comey has been found to be the one who leaked documents to the press.
    Hillary Rigged the last primary election with the DNC’s help and the collusion of Bernie taking a deal to buy him off.

    Mueller at best, was involved in not notifying Congress of problems with the Uranium 1 deal investigation.
    Money changed hands before and after the Uranium deal to the Clinton Foundation and to Bill.
    Even if you argue it wasn’t illegal, it was totally unethical and paints a picture as clear as day of the illusion of impropriety.

    It’s getting to the point where you almost can remember all the wrong that has been done when it comes to Hillary and the Democrats.
    Yet after more than 1 year we are still looking for proof of a crime that never happened with Trump.

    I’ve been very patient. Mine is now gone.
    Either something happened or it didn’t. This waiting for some bigger fish theory is getting old.
    Every single day this President and his Admin works under a cloud. And for what?
    Because they are still looking for the original crime?

    Crimes or at least wrong doing has been found. When does the other side in this get to sit in the hot seat?
    Why in the world doesn’t anyone care about American citizens being illegally unmasked?
    Why is it that the Hillary and the DNC did collude to make a candidate falsely win get any traction?
    Are we all supposed to live under the assumption that if you can pay enough you can get on the ballot?

    Maybe this is total frustration and doesn’t make any sense.
    But this much is clear. The Russians are accused of tampering with the election for President here.
    But what our own people did to tamper and collude is much worse.

    This nonsense of waiting for SC Mueller to do something about what really happened is crazy.
    It’s never going to happen. This isn’t 3D or 4D chess.
    This is putting the screws to Americans and giving a license to those that will do it again.

    We have influence peddling, collusion to make voters lose their voice in an election, we have bribes, money changing hands, kickbacks for favors, with McCabe’s wife, we have illegal unmasking and an admission of it for purely person reasons.
    There is corruption at the highest levels of Government. And we still haven’t brought up DWS and all those Dems selling out the country to a Pakistan family who stole classified information.

    How long will we have to chase the false Russian story and realize the only collusion with the Russians came from the Left?
    How long does it take to see the real criminal acts and stop trying to find one that isn’t there?
    There are multiple discrepancies with what happened last year. Obvious problems.

    This is never going to end. And if it does, it will not end well. Not because I support the President.
    But because I’m an American who thinks that it just should never happen the way it did.
    And it’s all going to be washed away and forgotten. Made into a joke.

      I have to concur, at this point people are losing all faith in Rule of Law, as it is clear to even the simplest person there’s rules we have to follow, but they do not apply to the elite or their servants. I keep hearing about a long game, and there’s this Q nonsense, but the reality is Mueller is surrounded by Clinton faithful lawyers, the idea that he is anything but a political hitman is unlikely. I am losing all patience, and faith in nearly every judicial branch. and federal law enforcement. Once people are completely demoralized from any faith in Rule of Law there is no going back. We are a banana Republic. Sessions where are you?!!!!

    Having problems posting. Hope this goes through.

    Personally I adore Sessions but he really is not up for this job. He just can’t fend off the Dem vultures. Jeffries (black jerk) just brought up his testimony during Clinton’s tenure. Jeff speaks slowly, haltingly.

    This is just persecution, at this point, and Jeff doesn’t hold his own.

    Why did he agree to this?

    What a lot of this Roy Moore stuff comes down to is, he can’t deny that he dated teenagers because it’s true. He can deny all the ‘rape’ stuff because it’s probably not true. He did date teenagers, though.

    In his day, it wasn’t really as strange as it is now, remember Jerry Lee Lewis legally married his 13 year old cousin in the late 50’s. He received a lot of backlash… but it wasn’t completely out of the question in the deep south.

    Flash forward to present day, and the question is basically, will people think it’s alright that folks used to date teenagers? The truth is, it’s just seen as weird now. The democrats have done an excellent job of pointing out how weird this is.

    When this started I thought he’d survive it, but the pile on has gotten severe enough that it’s going to be close.

      Yup, it’s definitely taboo for a 30 year old male to date a teenage female these days. But a male dating another male of any age is just fine and dating an “it” of any age is highly encouraged in today’s culture. If Moore were a homosexual or transvestite he’d be the left’s hero.

      I would visit my grandmother in Birmingham in the 1960’s and remember many couples with the man in his 30’s and the girl in her teens. It was just normal. I do remember that some southern states allowed girls as young as 14 to marry with parent’s permission. Many of the other states down there was 16.

      Things in life change as generations change. Going back to 6th grade, every parent of every friend in that class smoked, but none of them were divorced (I was the only kid in the class with one parent and that was because my mom had died). Today it would be just the opposite.

      The next two years will decide if America remains a great nation. If McConnell et. al. and the swamp win, we’ll continue our gradual but steady decline. If Trump wins, the people win and we will again.

    This hearing is hard to watch, particularly as Mrs. Sessions is near a breakdown at any minute. She’s already shed tears once and she’s been on the verge several times. My heart goes out to her. I may not agree with her husband’s decisions but this has been brutal for her.

    another school shooting in CA – jeez
    There was a massive police response to several crime scenes in Rancho Tehama, California Tuesday. Deputies say at least three people are dead—including the gunman.

    A Deputy told local media the shootings took place at several crime scenes and ‘multiple shots’ were fired at the elementary school. According to scanner traffic, children as young as 6 are among the wounded.

    I sincerely wish our treepers would seriously try to comprehend and apply appropriately the meanings of these words:

    Dissent: giving an opinion that differs from others.

    The name calling in the treehouse gets ugly and mirrors the left’s Alinsky tactics. Beneath the caliber of this site. Posters here who question Sessions are not trolls, infiltrators or psych ops. They simply are regular posters with an opinion that some don’t agree with.

    I’ve been watching the Sessions hearing. He can’t manage. He is used to being managed. Attorney General is a leadership position. Going from the Senate into the Attorney General position is not a great move in general, unless you are only there one term. The Senate only faces election every 6 years and you are managed by your aides. In general I think you risk losing the touch to lead if you are in the Senate more than one term.

      I tend to agree with you – he certainly doesn’t have the schmooze and snark that accompanies most politicians on public display, but I don’t know how well he actually manages things? He’s certainly not a great spokesman for anything, yet it seems the dept. is accomplishing a lot under him in terms of MS-13, human trafficking, etc.

      It would be nice if they asked questions about actual issues being addressed by the DOJ – we might get a better sense of Sessions true capability as AG.

        That’s true. I hate taking time for these long hearings, but I kept watching and there were a number of the GOP questioners…and couple democrats that I could see how they were working with the justice department through issues that were important to them…a wide variety of issues. IMO, I cannot understand Sessions when he communicates, however he is a good listener at heart. Fortunately, there was some representative that took over for Rep. Goodlatte as the chair at the end and his and Sessions exchange was helpful to me in understanding the approach of bringing in outside independent review of the several issues hopefully to include a review of the conflicts of interests. That to me is a step toward a better situation from the current where the Attorney General is recused from every high profile media driven political case. As it is the other side spends their time telling Sessions that he’s a liar.

        Can’t speak for MfM, but I dated quite a few young men. In the early 1970s in my neck of the woods, a girl was considered “fast” if she went steady with one man at too young of an age, the thought was that things could get too heated up between them, and anyone with attentive parents would have them insisting that they not date the same boy too early and too often. There was absolutely no expectation of sex with everyone you were dating, that was unheard of. Today’s social “norms” would have been considered unthinkable back then….
