    I truly don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    The Women’s March organizers are mad because Backpage has been shut down which interferes with women’s ability to work as hos, I mean sex workers. Nary a word, or a care, about the children who are bought and sold and are HARDLY working to make money to support themselves. Support pimps, well, yeah, but not themselves.

    What a perverse mockery these people make out of everything.

      Rosenstein in my opinion needed to go to Session to make the call concerning Cohen.
      I do believe that maybe Session would not want to make such call because of his relationship with Trump. This is all messed up ethics politics and personal survival is at stake for the black hats.

      Saying that, it has no support so I don’t think for one minute that the President intends it to fire on Syria. It was the ship that the Russians jammed and shut down in the Black sea and it would be a sitting duck for Russisa’s missiles and planes. I have a feeling this is all for show.

    RE: Syria, Assad. WMD

    I suggest everyone watch the Tucker segment with Mississippi GOPer Sen. Wicker.

    Pretty much everything about the GOPe, the Congress, deep state illustrated in one segment of glaring beltway elitism and ignorance. If you thought the 2001 era Congress and WMD was smelly, well you got a surprise coming because this one really reeks. Tucker steamrolled the idiot and he doesn’t even realize how badly he appeared.

    As I said the other day, Trump must call their bluff because they are on the verge of making a mockery of him and will split off his supporters by dragging him into this. …

    Summon the neocon Congress to the White House to make their proven case against Assad , Syria, and Russia. On camera. Convince everyone of their evidence of WMD again. State their goals including the endgame. Then send the critters back to the hill to vote for either a declaration of war or war powers resolution authorizing the war they are asking for.

    How many people even know we have no authorization for being there, which is more than Obama actually did ( he only bombed from above, and stoked events on the ground ). In fact, Bush43 at least had a UN resolution and Congressional authorization for Iraq, which is the very same war Trump ran against. We are getting sick of the neocon bullsh!t. Really sick of it. The neocons are pulling an amazing feat by pressuring Trump into doing what they could not get Obama to do.

    I know I’ve said it before, but once again, watch Season 2 of 24 and tell me the neocons are not stealing the chunks of the script straight from Hollywood. They are complete frauds.

      Preach it, man. I’ve got a feeling he doesn’t call the Neocons in and ask for justification because he already knows their reply. War, war, war. These people sold their souls a long time ago, maybe on Epstein’s Island or some other honeypot. If they had a ghost of a good man inside, they’d bring the temple down on themselves like Samson. But all we hear is crickets in that regard. Selfish, misanthropic scum.

        What are you replying to? Gathering the Congressional neocons on camera? He’s been doing that daily. There is no better way to expose the deep state neocons than to stick a camera in their face and ask them questions.

        Only Congress can declare war as stated in Article I Section 8. And what they are trying to do here is get the President to exceed anything done since WWII by any President except maybe JFK with Diem. In fact that may be the best comparison in that they want Assad out and a puppet in regardless of the havoc it wreaks on the local population. They ( deep state neocons ) will sacrifice every Christian and moderate Muslim in Syria to gain whatever pipeline or base or whatever that they desire.

        Trump rightly ran against Bush43 and the fake WMD issue. And won. The greatest trick the devil could ever pull is getting him to exceed that by a mile and in the process split off many/most of his supporters. That is a win-win for the anti-Trump forces of neocons and deep state actors including everyone from Kristol to McCain and McMuffin to Obama and Hillary as well.

      The red-haired woman at 9 min. in says she was an “American citizen” but she did not speak a word of English. She seemed to be the only one on this tape who didn’t like the “families being broken up” etc., from what I gleaned from the interpreter.

    Here’s something nice Rush said about our president today:
    “Well, what’s different is that we have a president who doesn’t know the time-honored, traditional, diplomatic way of not solving anything. Not solving things is not in Trump’s DNA. It’s the exact opposite. Solving things, fixing things, particularly getting rid of bad things and making good things better, that’s what Trump’s idea of progress is. It’s most people’s, by the way.”
    There’s some good stuff in the rest of the segment as well.

      Seems clear now based on MSM push that they are trying to get Trump to make a rash decision here, just as with Pruitt.

      Hold the line. Take a step back.

      This is desperation. Don’t give them anything on this. Take some time to make a strategy, and then go from there.

      This was their last play. The “Stormy” play, which is what this is.

      More leaks to come, I’m sure, and more “evidence” of Trump misdeeds.

      But no one cares. It’s not about Russia and people are sick of the witch hunt.

      I actually thought Trump was extremely calm at the military meeting. I think he understands where things are at. Sure, he’s mad, but he’s not going to indulge the frenzy too much.

    Not forgotten here: Enrique Marquez sentencing for San Bernardino

    The U.S. Attorney’s Office will recommend 25 years in prison for Enrique Marquez Jr., the Riverside man who bought the two semi-automatic rifles and explosive powder used by two terrorists in the Dec. 2, 2015 mass shooting in San Bernardino that killed 14 and wounded 22.

    While Marquez, 26, didn’t plot or participate in the attack, the government notes in its sentencing memo filed Monday that Marquez told interviewing FBI agents that he “could have done something about it.

     In the sentencing memorandum the government also recommends a lifetime of supervised release for Marquez, with terms and conditions including recommendations on drug and mental health treatment, and a special assessment of $200. The government also asked the court to consider restitution to the victims at a later hearing.”
