      So we’re supposed to believe that BHO wanted to overthrow Castro’s government or something? Color me cynical. More likely they were gathering information on dissidents for purposes not connected to freedom for the Cuban people but toward aiding unrest so Castro Bros., Inc. could know who to arrest. I trust Barry on nothing.

      More proof that we’re going in circles. We knew this more than a year ago. We keep reporting the same things as if they’re “breaking stories” and yet nothing happens. A year from now I expect to hear the same “breaking story.”

      Note that the evidence is that investigators for the first time have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence . . . not evidence that some laws were broken . . .when Hillary Clinton and her top aides transmitted classified information through her insecure private email server.

      There are tons of evidence to show that Hellary and Co broke many existing laws concerning access and the storage, transmission and destruction of classified information. Tons and tons. This is merely evidence that the FBI knew it, too. Of course they did. That’s why Hellary got a “special” investigation.

      “Special”, of course, means “coverup”. Please, just an arress. And then a conviction, and then time in the big house.

      My guess is that having classified info on the computers is the least of the crimes. Check the bank accounts. Who did they sell the info to?

    Donald J. Trump

    North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

      Maybe Russia painted “Nuke” on the “overcharge” button they got from Hellary and sold it to the NORKs.

      He also tweeted this:
      Donald J. Trump
      Sanctions and “other” pressures are beginning to have a big impact on North Korea. Soldiers are dangerously fleeing to South Korea. Rocket man now wants to talk to South Korea for first time. Perhaps that is good news, perhaps not – we will see!
      6:08 AM – 2 Jan 2018

      However the tweet you posted is timed with increasing chatter and confirmation (US military and confirmed by Ambassador Haley) that a HS-15 launch is imminent as pre-launch preparations north of Pyongyang observed.

      Russian ‘Doomsday” planes flying East and China has, undercover of night moved significant military forces along the Yalu and Tumen rivers bordering NK.

    “The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, warned North Korea on Tuesday against staging another missile test and said Washington would not take any talks between North and South Korea seriously if they did not do something to get Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons.

    Haley told reporters the United States was hearing reports that North Korea might be preparing to fire another missile.”

    “I hope that doesn’t happen. But if it does, we must bring even tougher measures to bear against the North Korean regime,”

      I’ve never understood making it incrementally tougher. Obviously they’re not working, tell China there’s a full blown trade war with them if we see 1 drop of anything head into North Korea from China, Russia, or anybody. If they say no fair say take care of the problem.

    Chinese preparations:
    “It was PLA’s Marines that exercised at several ports on Shandong Peninsula. 15 different types of primarily logistical exercises were conducted in early December and they were specifically geared to NK emergencies, per Yonhap citing PLA sources contacted.”

    “Per Chinese commander contacted, “This is different from past exercises. It’s not just logistical exercise to practice troop movement but coordination of entire military equipment & systems. It’s not just practice but to simulate real situations erupting”


    Looks like Km should have picked up the phone from Neville Chamberlain Moon.

      I wonder what a “big white truck” costs. That must be one helluva ROI!

      And President Trump is back in the White House–who cares what the big white truck is doing in Florida?

    Oh my, Huma Abedin is toast. Chris Farell on Lou Dobbs tonight laid out the legal case perfectly. And Judicial Watch was the entity that nailed her,

    It goes a lot deeper than that. The whole staff around Hillary, including Hillary herself had foreknowledge and forethought, and they lied under oath!!

    What a show!!

    Well, colour me not surprised. Seems the ships China claimed were not theirs and it was all a big lie, turns out to be true.

    “Chinese Ships Fly Foreign Flags to Dodge N.Korea Sanctions”

    “Chinese shipping firms are evading sanctions against North Korea registering ships in third countries. Ships owned by Chinese firms that were seized in Yeosu and Pyeongtaek ports late last year for violating UN Security Council sanctions had all been registered in third countries.”
