        A quote from your link:

        “Another coworker immediately started lecturing me in front of everyone about how this was grossly cis-heteronormative and that rather than forcing an identity on my child because of genitals, I should cultivate an environment in which the child would be able to flourish and explore the play of gender,” he continued. “This went on for fifteen minutes.”

        A prime example of why Dr. Michael Savage calls liberalism a mental disorder. I don’t think many Treepers would last too long on one of today’s college campuses, except Hillsdale and a few others.

      Filmmaker Matt Whitworth is launching a new documentary project that exposes the truth about our government with uncensored quotes from lawmakers willing to go on the record.

      For those who are asking where to find the videos, they are being released on Facebook Watch. If you are in facebook, Watch is one of the menu items on the left side of the screen. You can follow The Swamp if you want to be notified when new episodes are released. This link will get you to the right spot: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?query=the%20swamp

        With all respect, if this video is a wake-up call then you haven’t been paying attention. You are forgiven if you are, say in your 20s. Welcome aboard. The task at hand is large. It is tough and you sometimes you will want to bow out and take a breather. That is understandable. But stay the course. Use that passion implied in your all caps OMG to unseat the corrupt uniparty.

        Which of us, when we vote, vote for the party? I surely don’t. I vote for the candidate. (That does not mean I would vote for a D, I surely do not.) Perhaps you will like to know more about what they in the video only touched on; to sit on a committee – divided in ‘A’ list, ‘B’ list, ‘C’ list – the Congresscritter buys his seat, payable to the party. One million dollars is the starting point. It goes up from there. The Chair of an A list committee, such as House Oversight goes for Ten million.

        That means they have to pick up the phone to call donors to ask for even more money. So Congress spends a lot of time asking donors to step up. And they must attend fund raisers and and actively campaign for others in their party and other such party business.

        Perhaps we should be thankful so little official business gets done. When the Congressman in the video shows his calendar and squawks about his long work days, does he mention what he actually does during those hours? Well, I just gave a glimpse of that.

        What if they say no to the party? The party will make sure they are not invited to social gatherings and dinners where the real dealings are done. Their wives will be blackballed at social functions. They will be denied benefits to Congress bathrooms, exercise equipment, parking privileges, apartment rentals, and so on.

      “how ‘the swamp’ works,”

      We kind of had the same setup here in NY state for years, we call it “three men in a room”. The Governor, the state senate leader and state leader of the assembly. They make ALL the decisions on even what gets out of committee or comes to floor for a vote. Everyone else that is elected is just there for state constitution “window dressing”.

      Not really surprised that Washington is three men in a room and one woman.It is why the donor class gets their legislation, but the voters do not get theirs, such as concealed carry reciprocity and the Second Amendment Guarantee Act.

      I think the easier question is who didn’t know? As I said yesterday on this post, who didn’t see this coming? Maybe I am surprised that it happened so soon, I thought at least by summer. But surely it would happen.

      A pure stroke of genius, President Trump offered tariff exemptions to those countries which made concessions to the USA. South Korea did and that put them at a competitive advantage. China had to follow suit.

      It is interesting that President XI did this immediately following President Trump’s tweet saying that no matter what happens they will always be friends. Veiled threat? Connection? Maybe/maybe not.

        • lawrencepaul1, I think they are only using McCain’s name to rubber stamp it as bipartisan “concern”. If I recall, McCain’s name pop’s up as handing the Clinton dossier / document to Comey in Dec’16 (post President Trump’s victory) whereas FBI used it for FISA warrant in Oct’16 and they started investigation just before or immediately after RNC convention in Jul’16.

            • lawrencepaul1, is British intel that you are referring different than the Clinton dossier?
              A quick search on “McCain’s link to clinton dossier” indicates that it was Clinton dossier that McCain handed to FBI (Comey?). If it was Clinton Dossier then I believe that was used to secure FISA warrant. If it was used to secure FISA warrant then Clinton dossier was with FBI (FBI was working with Steele because of his impeccable reputation in the past) much before McCain gave it to FBI. Then before McCain it was Reid / Brennan who were also in the mix.
              I am not trying to confuse anybody but more like trying to untangle my understanding if it is incorrect. I do not want to end up being a fool when I argue with someone anti-Trump with my understanding – oh and I argue a lot with these folks since I am surrounded by anti-trumpers and have to preserve my reputation of never losing a logical, fact-based argument(s) :).

        aaaaaaaaaaad here’s the facts.

        Many so called investigations into the DOJ/FBI/Deep state/Clintons/Obama WH that have been ongoing for over a year. Not a single search warrant has been issued or early morning raids of swamp critter’s homes and offices have taken place. Not a single indictment or arrest. Only one person even teminated from employment and that was a clown show at the last min. McCabe should have been fired 17 months ago.

        One investigation on going to bring Trump down. Only persons arrested and residences searched in the pre-dawn hours have been close Trump advisors. Facts speak for themselves. This is a witch hunt to bring down Trump. Everything else IMO is kabuki theater that will lead to nothing. Results so far speak for themselves.

        It will just be a matter of time, days, weeks at the most, until Trump’s personal attorney is indicted. You don’t execute 4 search warrants and seize evidence w/o indicting the target.

        Who’s next? It will be someone close to Trump. Count on it.

        Mueller and his goon squad are wasting no time while the so called swamp critter hunters are taking their own good time putting out the fire while the house is ablaze.

        Rosy, Wray, Sessions. All enablers of the witch hunt.

        “If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” ~ Samual Adams

                  NYT 2017/07/20 “Senator John McCain has glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer, his doctors said on Wednesday.”

                  Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science – “Glioblastoma can occur at any age, but tends to occur more often in older adults. It can cause worsening headaches, nausea, vomiting and seizures.

                  Glioblastoma, also known as glioblastoma multiforme, can be very difficult to treat and a cure is often not possible. Treatments may slow progression of the cancer and reduce signs and symptoms…..”

                  Cancer Survival Rate Information
                  “…Glioblastoma brain cancer is an advanced cancer form that claims many lives each year….

                  Glioblastoma brain cancer is among the most severe forms of that dreaded condition known as brain cancer…

                  The glioblastoma brain cancer prognosis is traditionally a grim one, as this form of cancer is generally associated with glioblastoma brain cancer stage 4. At this stage of the disease, tumors are growing rapidly and invading organs and tissues that surround the brain.

                  Symptoms of glioblastoma brain cancer can include physical symptoms such as severe headaches, vomiting, and seizures, as well as significant memory loss and personality change.

                  Sadly, the glioblastoma brain cancer survival rate is not optimistic, with the average survival rate for this condition standing at a maximum of 14 months.[…]

                  That means McCain should have LESS THAN 6 months to live with rapidly worsening symptoms.

        I do think the Judiciary can be petitioned to screen the documents and decide what is allowed to be public, and what must be protected under attorney-client privilege. There is a great deal we don’t know about this warrant, ie. How broad it was? What did they actually take out of the office? Paper files? Computers? Cell phones? Associates’ records?

        The media: if personal information of other clients is released – could the MSM be subject to legal action?
        Regardless. As the story currently stands, it sounds like jackboot action undertaken by the FBI. Frightening for its implications…

  14. Good morning folks. I have this overwhelming feeling that the office raid was about Cohen and not our President. After all, Cohen is an attorney, so how much filth is on him prior to or while representing President Trump? I have learned to expect the unexpected in this incredible novel about restoring our perfect Union.

    Maybe I’m insane, but part of me still feels that the Mueller investigation continues because the President wants it to continue. I don’t know why or what the hell is wrong with me, but it remains embedded in my brain.

    Court filing by MuellerUNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. PAUL J. MANAFORT, JR.,
    Defendant.
    No. 17-cr-201-1 (ABJ)

    Mueller’s filing includes a quotation from DOJ’s discussion of special counsels making it clear that it’s normal to investigate crimes that might lead someone to flip.

    “[I]n deciding when additional jurisdiction is needed, the Special Counsel can draw guidance from the Department’s discussion accompanying the issuance of the Special Counsel regulations. That discussion illustrated the type of “adjustments to jurisdiction” that fall within Section 600.4(b). “For example,” the discussion stated, “a Special Counsel assigned responsibility for an alleged false statement about a government program may request additional jurisdiction to investigate allegations of misconduct with respect to the administration of that program; [or] a Special Counsel may conclude that investigating otherwise unrelated allegations against a central witness in the matter is necessary to obtain cooperation.”

    Remember this phrase…it expands Mueller reach exponentially to infinity:
    “investigating otherwise unrelated allegations against a central witness” if it’s “necessary to obtain cooperation.”

    Anyone who did anything with Trump is now a target. They are not safe in their home, office or workplace.

    Who will ever sign on to defend Trump?

    We must now wait for Judge Jackson’s ruling to see if the courts bless Mueller’s self expanded authority

      This has to stop. These investigations must have clear and defined limits. Otherwise, the Deep State will continue to destroy us and subvert our will. No future “outsiders” will ever run for office (and yeah, I know that’s THE desired outcome of the cabal.)

      This is one time when I wish we could have an emergency national referendum on specific legislative action-similar to the propositions we sometimes vote on at local and state levels. Congress won’t do it for us and POTUS is one man. Has there ever been ANY kind of national referendum -where the people voted directly to pass specific laws? We don’t want to change the constitution—we want to bring accountability and limits to agencies who no longer adhere to it. I didn’t realize how dire the situation is until I realized that we don’t have any options If Congress won’t take action.

      The colonists presented their grievances to the British Parliament and asked for redress before any shots were fired. They did everything they could to avoid bloodshed. Their premier issue was taxation without representation. Besides POTUS and a handful of Congressional members, where is OUR representation in Washington, DC? We didn’t elect the people who are trying to take out our president. How is this not tyranny?

      It’s time for us to organize and petition Congress. The historical record needs to show that they were given opportunity to redress our grievances. I don’t know how to go about doing this but I intend to find out.

    As posted earlier.

    I’m a big believer in PDJT and I wish him well. But I’m also a believer in Occam’s Razor. That’s the theory that, to understand a complex problem, choose the solution that makes the fewest assumptions.

    The real debate here is whether PDJT and a carefully selected senior team are playing out a well thought out plan to drain the swamp (the often promised but still elusive BIG UGLY) or whether PDJT is surrounded by people who may appear to be White Hats but are in reality controlled by the Deep State.

    Just make a list of what one has to ASSUME about key people and key activities to make the Big Ugly/Drain the Swamp multi dimensional chess game plausible. To wit:

    1. You have to ASSUME Sessions is White Hat despite his recusal from campaign related issues and, more importantly, his multi month abdication of AG responsibilities in Swamp activity OUTSIDE OF HIS NARROW RECUSAL. Most of what is hamstringing our President has nothing to do with Russian collusion in the campaign and Sessions is letting it all happen. He could have tightened the leash on Mueller and Rosenstein a long time ago and he did not.

    2. You have to ASSUME Mueller was hand picked by PDJT and is really going after the massive criminality of the Deep State, obvious to all who are honest, despite the staff he has hired and the actions he has taken (all against PDJT allies and ZERO against Hillary and her Swamp acolytes).

    3. You have to ASSUME Rosenstein is White Hat despite all the Swamp supporting or Swamp excusing activity he is presiding over – with NO corresponding action against anything Swamp.

    4. You have to ASSUME the IG is going to drop a MOAB soon (it’s always soon, never today) despite the Judicial Watch and other inputs that IG’s are where truth goes to die and no one can cite a single IG report that really led to anything meaningful ( I don’t count rearranging deck chairs or “mistakes were made, lessons were learned, and we will do better in the future”). I mean criminal referrals leading to indictments, prosecutions and jail time. It doesn’t happen in the Swamp.

    5. You have to ASSUME House and Senate investigations will lead to anything. The Swamp just plays with these dopes. A teenager would love to have one of these committee chairs as a father. He/she could get away with anything. Nunes and Grassley are the only exceptions and they, too, are being hamstrung.

    6. You have to ASSUME that massive DOJ investigations (run by career investigators and prosecutors) have been long underway investigating the massive criminality that is as obvious as the nose on your face (Hillary e-mailgate, Uranium 1, Clinton Foundation, FISA abuse, unmasking, lying under oath, leaking classified information, et al) and yet not one single leak or tip has come out in over a year.

    Etc., etc., etc.

    Unfortunately, I conclude that the simpler solution (i.e.. fewer assumptions) is that PDJT was somewhat overwhelmed early in his tenure (understandable) and took the staffing advice of closet Swampers who talked him into filling very important positions with very clever Deep State operatives (Sessions, Mueller, Rosenstein, Priebus, McMaster, Wray, etc.) who are now playing their assigned roles to basically render the Trump Presidency null and void. He now knows this, is changing what he can at this late date, but it’s too late to get back on a winning streak before the mid terms and likely House flip.

    I will believe this until I see one (just one) significant action (i.e. impacting a Senior Swamper) that tells me any of PDJT’s key people are on his team and really part of the oft promised 3D chess game.

    Until then, I reluctantly bow to the wisdom of Occam’s Razor. It’s the best explanation of complex human behavior known to man.

      4) “IG’s are where truth goes to die” – That was true under 8 years of BHO. PDJT has taken ALL 47(?) IG’s off the leash and unmuzzled them.

      “indictments, prosecutions and jail time. It doesn’t happen in the Swamp.” – Which is why a team was brought in from outside the “swamp” to deal with it.

      6) “yet not one single leak or tip has come out in over a year.” – That is exactly how “things used to be” 30-40 years ago, which is what AG Sessions said he wanted the DOJ to go back to.

      “it’s too late to get back on a winning streak before the mid terms and likely House flip.”

      If President Trump thought it was too late to save the country and stayed in cozy Trump Tower, we would not be having this discussion now, would we? I am sticking with the plan that PDJT has and he has my full support.

              It is not touched by the speaker’s previous experiences or tastes.
              It is verifiable by looking up facts or performing mathematical calculations.

              Subjective Statement:
              Is a statement that has been colored by the character of the speaker or writer.
              It often has a basis in reality, but reflects the perspective through with the speaker views reality.
              It cannot be verified using concrete facts and figures.

      Fabulous idea, won’t happen. The goal of Mueller is to make sure that Donald Trump is removed from office by any means short of assassination.

    I’m not forgiving one gopE Quisling who voted for a Special Council to investigate the bogus Trump involvement with Russia in the 2016 election.
    NOT. ONE.
    I will never vote for one of them again, EVER.

    Where are these gopE Quislings speaking out about the Stalinesque tactics Mueller’s team is using? This behavior reeks of P.U.N.K. Weissmann.
    Where are they screaming to shut this witch hunt down?
    Where are they screaming why Hillary wasn’t raided for her 33,000 missing emails?
    Where are they screaming about why it is okay for the Aman brothers to claim attorney client privilege?
    Where are they calling for Wassermann-Schultz’s head?

    Once none of these Quislings squawked when Mueller had the temerity to subpoena Paul Manafort’s former attorney it was only a matter of time before they raided Michael Cohen.

    These raids would never be done to Obama or Hillary. We would hearing screams of racist and misogyny.

    I’m fed up with the double standard and ashamed to be an American where there is no rule of law.

    I have zero respect for clueless Sessions. I always had my doubts about him for AG. Only someone who resided in the swamp for too long would have voted to confirm RADICAL Holder for AG and make Rosenstein number 2 at the DOJ. The DOJ needed to be fumigated.

    I’m also sick of hearing that Mueller was a marine. BFD, he’s also a corrupt piece of garbage.

    What we are witnessing is not a coup against Trump. It is a jackboot on the throat of the citizens of the US who voted for Trump and a threat to any outsider who ever contemplates running for POTUS again.

            You’re probably right, but it shouldn’t even require proof of a negative. What it should require is proof of the allegation and any doubts whatsoever negate that allegation. Mattis supposedly said no proof from last year, and if you really listen to all these politicians they always hedge with weasel words. IMHO, after Bush43 WMD, and after Trump’s clear campaign, that is more than enough to dismiss these fools out of hand.

    The Resistance Is Already Planning for When Trump Fires Mueller
    By Michelle Goldberg

    If news breaks that Trump has forced Mueller out, Wertheimer believes that “the country will explode.” For the resistance, the trick is making sure the explosion is sustained. “That means people in the streets, demonstrations, marches, folks coming to Washington, a massive lobbying effort in Congress,” he said.

    3) The more explicit exponents of 4-d chess (like Wictor etc etc) are so intelligent, absorbing and persuasive, it is impossible not to consider their opinions seriously. Plus, it is what I WANT to believe (a powerful psychological phenomenon). The despair pov does not appeal to me at all, but it certainly looks real going on appearances and “nothing” happening.

    4) Based on decades of personal experience closely following politics (as much as one can given the need to pay the next mortgage installment) I have NEVER been so confused about what is actually going on as I am now. I am just certain about two things: first, Trump is a VSG, a godsend, and the best thing to happen to America in my lifetime. Second, America is in thrall to Corrupt Evil-doers from top to bottom, in every jurisdiction, and across the fruited plain.

    5) Three other things.

    6) First, a poster somewhere made the comment that Trump repeats how Mueller is on a “witch hunt.” There is only one witch known to all.

    7) Second, Sundance has proved that witnesses are cooperating and outside prosecutors are engaged. We know other prosecutors are busy in Arkansas and elsewhere.

      I share in some of your confusion. The fury and strength of the resistance didn’t surprise me. I was even less surprised by the GOP leadership who I believe may present even more danger to the President now than the Dems.

      What surprises me to this day is the near unanimous strain of hate in the media toward this President, and a total disregard for reporting any positive news whatsoever.

      I believed that by this time at least in his presidency, the President expected that there’d be at least some semblance of fairness and accuracy in reporting. At least I expected it. That was not to be.

        And the media continued to defend Clinton every day of his presidency.

        I am confused as I never have been by the motives of the various news makers, and the precise details of who is doing what and why, foreign OR domestic.

        I think this is in no small part exactly what Trump wants, for many reasons, not the least is to prevent Fake News from ever attaining a consistent hold on the Narrative. But as I say, for many other reasons too.

        The few indisputable hard facts are all very encouraging.

The day that Syria is the big topic, and Bolton’s first day also sees the raid on the President’s lawyer. Immediately every Trump supporter rallies behind Cohen and Trump ( rightly of course ) leaving no oxygen for questions about the Syria scam.

      Conspiracy or not, this is a win-win for deep state actors because they might get what they want in Syria with Trump that even Obama chickened out from doing. And, Trump loses a chunk of his supporters along the way as a deep state bonus.

    STATE BAR OF CALIFORNIA!
    “The [lawyer-client] privilege has been a hallmark of Anglo-American jurisprudence for almost 400 years … Its fundamental purpose ‘is to safeguard the confidential relationship between clients and their attorneys so as to promote full and open discussion of the facts and tactics surrounding individual legal matters … Although exercise of the privilege may occasionally result in the suppression of relevant evidence, the Legislature of this state has determined that these concerns are outweighed by the importance of preserving confidentiality in the attorney-client relationship.’” Justice Katherine Werdeger for the majority in Costco Wholesale Corp. v. Superior Ct. (2009) 47 Cal.4th 725, 740-741 (Costco)….

    Any party claiming the lawyer-client privilege has a burden to establish the preliminary facts necessary to demonstrate that the communication was made in the course of an attorney-client relationship.

    “Once those facts sufficient for a prima facie claim of privilege are demonstrated, the communication is presumed to have been made in confidence and the burden shifts to the opposing party to establish either that (1) the communication was not confidential or (2) the privilege does apply.” (Id., p. 741.)” https://apps.calbar.ca.gov/mcleselfstudy/mcle_home.aspx?testid=34

  46. This was a very clever move by Mueller. He can’t find anything on Trump, so he goes nuclear.
    If Trump fires him, Democrats will say it’s obstruction of justice and enough Republicans could be convinced to go along with impeachment. If he doesn’t fire Mueller, the FBI now has all kinds of privileged communication to scour for anything remotely illegal, and all they need are some technicalities.
    I don’t know the best response, but Horowitz and Huber should immediately assign a team to investigate this warrant and search. They should review ALL communication between the people involved.
    From what I’ve read about the basis for the warrant, it is probably legal (Trump’s statement that he didn’t know about the deal Cohen made with Stormy Daniels opened the door for this), if only technically. That said, I don’t believe for a moment that anyone involved thought a decade old possible affair justifies violating the attorney-client privilege of a sitting President. The intent here was almost certainly criminal (at the very least obtaining evidence to which he otherwise would not have access under the fraudulent pretense of seeking it solely in the Daniels matter), and it’s likely there is evidence of that.
    Demonstrate that intent and immediately charge Mueller, but don’t fire him. There are plenty of crimes with which he could be charged, and he could justifiably be held as his release would allow him to continue his criminal conspiracy. In the interim, additional charges could be filed.
    Trump is in a very difficult spot here, and it looks like a possible Catch 22. He needs to outsmart those taking him down, and they just made a masterful move.

      • I just read the agreement between Cohen and Daniels, upon which the legal justification for the search rests.
        Trump may have a very quick way out of this that would invalidate the warrant and potentially prove the actions through which the warrant was attained criminal.
        Two facts would govern this.
        First, what powers of attorney has Trump granted Cohen? If Cohen has powers of attorney that would allow him to enter such agreements without consulting Trump (which seems pretty likely to me), they should immediately release those publicly. This could establish both that the agreement with Daniels was valid, with Cohen signing on behalf of both Trump and himself, and it would support the fact that the agreement would remain valid even absent Trump’s knowledge of it. Nothing in the agreement would have required Trumo’s knowledge of it, and thus the default position – to believe both Cohen and Trump that Trump didn’t know about it, would have to be accepted.
        Second, if the FBI did not exhaustively pursue knowledge regarding Cohen’s specific powers of attorney, including all legally available means that are less intrusive than a warrant and a search, then the warrant would be invalid. If they claimed they did exhaust all such efforts, and cannot prove that Cohen refused to provide evidence of his powers of attorney, then, just as is likely the case with the FISA warrant applications, their declaration that they pursued all other available means would constitute fraud.

        If the above are true, (which seems likely, and I very much hope they are) Trump’s next move is very straightforward: release a dated (and, if needed, redacted) copy of his agreement with Cohen, and challenge Mueller to prove he attempted to acquire this agreement and was unable to do so. If Mueller didn’t, they can then immediately review the warrant application and likely charge Mueller with fraud.

            Read through the obligations with respect to DD. None of them would require Trump’s knowing about this agreement. It’s also worth noting that the amount was $130,000. While that sounds like a lot of money, Trump probably make $500 million per year, or $1.3 million per day, so the amount might be the equivalent of an hour’s work.
            I run a company, and if an employee of mine wasted hours of my time discussing an amount that small, I’d fire them. That leads me to believe Trump didn’t know about the agreement – dealing with pesky things like this is precisely why he has employees like Cohen in the first place. Now he needs to produce the evidence Cohen was suitably empowered to act on his behalf.

      Agree. Not just Mueller, but Andrew Weissman and any others involved in the warrant process need to be included. they have violated both attorney-client privilege or work-product protection of MULTIPLE clients per Cohen’s attorney Ryan’s statement and the
      A-C privilege goes beyond POTUS capacity as President but also as a private citizen since the timeframe pre-dates 1.20.

    Presidential Prayer Team Daily Prayer Briefing, as follows:

    Tuesday, April 10, 2018

    President Donald Trump is meeting with the Emir of Qatar today at the White House. The president said that he is looking forward to speaking with the emir concerning mutual security and economic priorities.

    Since June of last year, Qatar has been under scrutiny for its suspected support of terrorist organizations and the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Egypt all cut ties to the nation in response. As many of the nations involved in the regional disputes are key U.S. allies, the president is looking to bring unity to the region through a series of meetings and diplomatic summits.

    Last week, President Trump urged Qatar and Saudi Arabia to end ongoing disputes with neighboring nations and lead the way in creating peace and stability in the region. In today’s meeting, the president will also likely continue to push for increased cooperation between Qatar and the United States.

    As the Lord Leads, please pray:
    For wisdom and discernment for President Trump during the meeting today as he navigates the complex diplomacy of a high tension region.
    For God to use the meeting today to accomplish his will and that he would guide and direct the president’s words and actions.
    For the president to have understanding and direction coming out of the meeting today.

  50. President Trump is under unimaginable pressure right now. More even than Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Stormy Daniels et al keeps his feet to the fire. They want WW3 out of him. This will disintegrate much of his support, if not disintegrate the planet. So what. If ever there was a good time for the military to exert itself, it would be now. Pray hard for the President.
