        I feel I must post this warning – the last time I was at my son-in-law’s house, I went into my 8 year old granddaughter’s bedroom to see what she was doing. She had an I-pad and was on YouTube, watching what at first glance looked like a cartoon. I suggested she shouldn’t be on Youtube and she immediately closed it out and shut it down…..this peaked my interest so I opened it back up to see what she was watching. It started out as a cute little cartoon about love and friendship; within 30 seconds, it morphed into a dating app, with a pic of an older man (again, a cartoon figure), with long graying hair and glasses, sitting at a desk in a bedroom, with the words emblazoned across the top: “LOOKING FOR LOVE?” Turns out, it really WAS a dating app where you pay for them to “hook you up.” Needless to say, I FREAKED!!!! I told my granddaughter in no uncertain terms she was NOT allowed to be watching such a thing. She is one who LOVES to argue but, in this case, she said not ONE word! She KNEW, immediately, that this was wrong. No doubt you are already aware of these things but I feel I have to say: WARN YOUR GRANDKIDS’ PARENTS!!!! Don’t know how old they are but…….my son-in-law now restricts her use to no more than half-hour/day and ONLY when she is sitting right next to him. No control over what happens when she is at her friends’ houses, unfortunately.

      Jordan has gotten to the crux of the matter. Grassley agrees with him. Wray is in the hot seat, but until Jordan & Grassley stipulate a deadline to produce the requested FISA application it’s just all talk no action.

      Stop with the hearing shows, stop with the angry questions, put a deadline on the response and then slap a contempt charge.

      I have zero tolerance for this crap anymore.

      This video and exchange between Jordan and Wray tell me all I need to know about this new FBI director. He is another swamp rat covering for the swamp. Are there any decent people left in the FBI the DOJ ..? They seem to disregard chain of command refuse oversight from Senate. They ave moved into the KGB and the Stasi. They all need to be firerd and as POTUS has done so many times with old useless buildings rebuild them .
      Jim Jordan did a very good job and Wray embarrass himself.

      there was a gal last night on Irex’s thread saying she was a ex 20-25 yr FBI agent
      and was saying she knew mueller and was saying he was crooked.. so i looked her up
      and there wasn’t much on her.. no facebook page, but she has a religious blog and a inkedin account. she had many short term employments listed along with her “fbi” info and a business she said she owned for many years.. so I did research on her business and could find nothing but her linkedin listing for it… so probably a phony IMHO
      and half wonder if this guys source is not the same woman. – take her with a grain of salt or two.

    If Sessions had not recused himself…then we wouldn’t be having all these other discussions about people being “compromised”.

    So the Sessions recusal ‘re-set the bar’ to a high place by which all others are being measured.

    The problem is, the corruption and wrong-doing is so far reaching with tendrils going in all directions…that like Pete Hegseth mentioned, is Sessions’ recusal “too far reaching”?

    Once these cases have been investigated, perhaps Sessions could un-recuse…and then participate in the litigation phase?
    He couldn’t be accused of doing a ‘political persecution’ after wrongdoing has been determined by someone else.

    A lot of legal ‘experts’ have said that he didn’t have to recuse himself in the first place.
    So I am hoping that Sessions will un-recuse at some point.

      If he hadn’t recused everything coming out since months and coming up would be questioned as THE SAME as we question the impartiality of the people involved.

      Master stroke. The democrats never looked worse. Its all on them.
      Trump has all the time and patience to let this play out.

    Folks with all this nonsense going on, one thing that is happening at a record pace is the number of Judicial Seats our President is filling (Circuit Courts and District Courts). Once these three Justices are confirmed later this month, our President will have 12 Circuit Judges in place compared to Barry from Kenya’s 3 in their first year. Even the ultra liberal paper, Salon, has taken notice and are scared to DEATH about it!

    From the article linked above:

    For all of Donald Trump’s hollow bluster about his supposed accomplishments, the one place he’s winning bigly is largely overlooked: packing the federal courts as quickly as possible. As Amanda Marcotte wrote here on Nov. 8, “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Chuck Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, have set up a factory-style assembly line for Trump’s judicial nominees and are getting them confirmed at a dizzyingly fast rate.”

    Thanks to GOP obstruction, Trump entered office well-positioned for the task, as Susannah Jacob explained here in August. “When Obama entered office, there were 54 judicial vacancies. President Trump now has the opportunity to fill over 130,” she wrote, adding:

    “This will be the single most important legacy of the Trump administration,” Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware told Business Insider’s Allan Smith. “They will quickly be able to put judges on circuit courts all over the country, district courts all over the country, that will, given their youth and conservatism, have a significant impact on the shape and trajectory of American law for decades.” Trump has the power, Coons said, to bring about “a wholesale change among the federal judiciary.”

    I will save those who did not watch or read about the FBLie faux Director’s testimont today a lot of time.

    We learned that the FBLie director Wray is not really the FBLie director. That role was turned over to the IG of the DOJ last Jan. 12. Wray has been collecting a salary, for doing nothing. As is usual w/these dog and pony shows it was a complete waste of time.

    Trey Gowdy gave his usual speech. Jim Jordan gave us his theory of why the FBLie is corrupt, and has been covering it up. Jordan, of course is correct, but he could have gone on Lou Dobbs and told us his theory.

    Wray appeared as a one who has no strong leadership skills. It’s obvious he is owned by the swamp. Why did Trump appoint such a wuzz? . Lions should have been appointed to both the FBLie and AG jobs. Not a pair of pussy cats.

    DDD Report….IG report will disappoint. The way a conflicted agent, lawyer, etc. CAN work on a case he is biased on is clear in the rules. He simply discloses his ‘conflict’ to his immediate superior and that person grants him an ‘exception’ to the rule, they do this up and down the line for CYA. It is right there in the rules. In fact it is part of the rules Sessions cited in his own recusal. I read the book. The buck stops with Comey, Muelley, Rosey, and Sessions. He will prolly find they were conflicted, but exempt IMO. The plot will continue.

      You are probably right.

      I haven’t completely given up hope, though. God is still on His throne and He is still in charge. And for some reason, He prepared Donald Trump to lead the US at this point in our history.

      I’m guessing it wasn’t just so that I could smile big each month when I open up my 401k statement; I”m thinking He probably had something bigger in mind. My guess has been to keep the US as truly The Last Refuge on this planet where any degree of freedom exists, but I sure don’t claim to have the answers.

      He is not making a legal case. He is making up an obstruction report for congress to try and impeach. He can’t bring any important case to trial due to discovery. IMO it is extra legal and has nothing to do with due process or the rules of law and criminal procedure. It is a political coup scheme.

      I have some serious questions about Q and the use of 4chan-now-8chan. Why use a very small, rabid group of people that constantly (and vile-ly) attack nearly everyone in their “discussions” to “spread the word to normies?” IF Q is real, it’s far better to continue info leaks through the likes of Sara, John and Hannity.
      Qs leading questions are fascinating and I have learned a lot about our nation’s history (some bad, much of it enlightening) from poking around his crumbs, but 8chan does more harm to Q’s (tentatively assumed) validity than good.

      The congressman did not confirm or deny any plans to resign. Franks said he expected to make a statement Thursday.

      “We will have a statement a little bit later, but that’s all I can tell you right now,” Franks told Roll Call. “The statement will explain.”

      It is unclear exactly why Franks is stepping down, but one Arizona Republican said there had been rumors of inappropriate behavior. The Republican said the congressman had apparently been making plans to run for Senate in 2012, but abruptly canceled those plans.

      “There’s been rumors swirling around him for years, at least in 2012,” the Republican said. “And if this turns out to be true there won’t be that many people who are surprised.”
