      Utterly pathetic that the administration had to wait over 1 1/2 years for McConnell to take action to overcome the log jam. Hopefully its not too late to undo the damage done by Obama hold overs left in place by the craven coward McConnell.

        I don’t think McConnell is a coward at all. He’s a globalist who has done everything he can to delay Trump’s agenda. That’s what he stands for. He wants to stop Trump or at least delay him. He is aligned with the rest of the UniParty to stop Trump, but as a leader in the GOP he has to try not to be too obvious so that the average idiot voter doesn’t realize he’s part of the roadblock for Trump. He’s just like the rest of the Republicans in DC, except for maybe 10% of them that are trying to serve the voters. McConnell probably only regrets he couldn’t have delayed things longer.

        It still is illegal. The scam being played is that the “illegals” have been classified as refugees, who are entitled to social welfare benefits. This is the crux of the laws Trump cannot change by executive order and requires congress to change.

        All the illegals are being coached in the refugee scam, even the 500 trying to cross right now. Its a multi-million dollar scam and the reason the sanctuary cities are fighting tooth and nail against updated immigration policy. As much as 20% to 30% of social welfare recipients in sanctuary areas are the illegals posing a refugees.

          Last night on Hannity, Greg Jarrett said regarding 18 USC 793…..“Comey appears to have done what he cleared Hillary Clinton for…people don’t understand…Comey didn’t understand the law, which tells me he’s not much of a lawyer..793 was amended by congress to remove the “intent” requirement. Comey didn’t understand that. It’s simply gross negligence and “extremely careless” is a synonymous term so Hillary Clinton clearly violated the law”……

      There are so many pieces to this coup story scattered all over the place… and while Sundance does an EXCEPTIONAL job of putting majority of it together, it is little snippets like this that make the big picture that much clearer. Someone puts together the story from JW with the texts from Strzok & Page and immediately, you can SEE exactly what they were doing – and it is exactly what Sundance has been describing. Here is the proof.

      I think this adds to the circumstantial evidence that the work by the IG– and US Atty Huber– is complete. These text messages, from Dec 16 thru May 17– may have incredibly incriminating evidence of the attempt to frame & bring down a duly elected President. This would be what moves the story away from mis-use of government power and towards sedition/treason. When the IG releases these messages to congress, he’s well aware there will be leaks. This release is the offshore bombardment to soften defenses before the beaches are stormed.

        Mr. Lewandowski was petty and jealous when Mr. Manafort came on board. He was vindictive and had paychecks withheld from some people that Mr. Manafort brought with him, or were affiliated with Roger Stone.

        I know this because I know one of them personally (somebody that joined about the same time as P.M.). I don’t know for sure and am not going to contact him to ask just for this comment; however, in light of what I know I would ask myself this:

        Was Mr. Manafort responsible for so-called leaks, or was Mr. Lewandowski responsible for said leaks in an effort to oust Mr. Manafort so that he (C.L.) could go back to being “top dog” with all the attention and glory?

        Bavaria is the most sane area of Germany, has been for over 100 years. When they joined the German states and lost their autonomy, they still worked hard to maintain their culture, which is more closely aligned with Austria than Northern Germany. They work hard and play hard, a very joyful people. My Bavarian Catholic ancestors fled to America in order to escape Bismarck’s anti-Catholic KulterKampf. First Bismarck, then the Nazis, Bavarians are no stranger to tyranny and recognize it when they see it.

      Let’s demand Congress match all funds for arms sent to Ukraine and other nations also be sent to Bavaria. This may be the only smart money that they actually use in foreign subversive policy these days. It will stop the Muslim jihad “migrant” army long before it reaches our border.

      God willing, all of the superstates of old Europe will splinter into their local core nations rather than continuing to be ruled by a single city-state bureaucracy which in turn yields its authority to the masters of the universe inhabiting London/Paris/Brussels/Berlin. For starters, Italy, Germany and Spain are ripe for splintering, it is much better for everybody on the planet except for the elites.

    I’m taking a break from reading a book from Ben Franklin’s library. It’s in Latin. I’m astonished at the learning of the Founding Fathers. Yesterday, Trump visited Mt. Vernon, a home unlike any other, in a setting unlike any other. Washington surveyed a lot of what is now West Virginia, no small task. What intrigued me about yesterday’s news conference with President Macron of France, how much in command of circumstances Trump can exhibit whenever he chooses. The WH Press Corps act like it’s all been downhill for them since high school. Why are they even there? The key sentence was not ‘dumb question!’ It was about Iran – ‘It won’t be easy for them to restart . . . You can mark it down!’ Compared with Franklin, Washington, Adams, and Hamilton, Trump is right up there, among the best of the best!’

    • In 2000, people were complaining that they could vote because they didn’t have a proper ID.
      Then the same basic group complained in 2004. Then again in 2008, 2012 and then 2016.

      Now in this country we have people from all over the world that become citizens.
      Actual African Americans from Africa. German Americans, Japanese Americans, people from South American Countries, Haitian Americans. The list is endless. They all seem to become citizens and know what they have to do and to have to vote.

      The only people that cannot seem to figure out how to get the proper ID to vote are blacks that have lived in America for generations. They are the only group that appears not able to figure out the whole ID thing.

      They would be the only group that would suffer any hardship, if voter ID laws were enacted in every state to legally vote.
      This is perplexing to me.
      What’s more perplexing is that this group hasn’t been able to figure it out or obtain the proper ID, where required, in in 5 Presidential elections spanning 16 years.

      How is it possible that people come here from all over the world and become citizens and don’t have a problem. But American born blacks can’t figure it out?

    I’ve just heard that Slidefire, the company that owns the patent on the bumpstock; is now shutting down after May 20.

    This is absolutely disgraceful and Gun Owners of America spokespeople have rightly pointed out that if Trump has the ATF issue a ban on bump stocks you can guarantee that the AR 15 as well as all other semi automatic rifles will be considered “machine guns” and be banned by a future antigun administration since any of them can be bump fired without a bump stock.

    Not only this but now over half a million law abiding gun owners who purchased a bumpstock from Slidefire or elsewhere will now be considered felons because they own a “machine gun” when a bump stock is not even a gun – it’s a part.

    This why I said that Trump calling for a ban on bumpstocks was absolutely stupid and a total violation of the Second Amendment.

    But I still feel confident that even if more mass shootings take place that teachers will be able to carry their CCW flintlock muskets (because if we have any more mass shootings that will be all will be allowed to have) on school grounds with them.
