    About that IG Report and Horowitz’s testimony before congress originally scheduled for May 8:

    “Gowdy did not set a new date for the testimony, but, considering the short congressional calendar in May, it’s possible Horowitz’s testimony could be put off until June.”

    Sorry if already reported above.

    John Kerry guilty of Logan Act violation (un-authorized negotiating with an enemy of the US)–just what Flynn got in hot water about. Will SC go after Kerry???

        It will be a fierce and interesting battle with Congress. The Wall is the most visible element of the plan by the resistance to thwart Immigration reform, and Dems and RINOs in tough House re-election campaigns will think hard and long about voting down the necessary funding when a majority of the voters want the Wall.

        The tension will be thicker in the Senate, where 8- 9 Dems are fighting for their elected lives. The Dem leadership, all safe during this election go-round, will be exerting maximum pressure on their election-vulnerable colleagues who will first be looking out for themselves.

        The September, pre-mid-term election timing of the Wall budget showdown could not be better for the President. I anticipate that Schumer will go “all in” to force a shutdown and try to manipulate the narrative to embarrass the President. I seriously doubt that strategy will work. It is shaping-up as another humiliating loss for the Dems.

      I cringed a little when I heard him say that today. CR’s are now SOP. These Congressmen should be forced to suspend their campaigning for reelection and work through the summer to pass the authorizations and appropriations for FYs 2019-2020.

        The last CR will expire before the deadline for a Budget.

        I think that is what PDJT was referring to.
        I’m sure he will be pushing for a real Budget…he’s been doing that for over a year.

        Pres Trump even sent a Budget to the House last year, for their review and debate.
        But Rat Ryan shelved it and didn’t even bring it up.

    Am I the only one here that thinks like this?

    – I’m not surprised at anything we hear about corruption at the FBI or CIA or whatever, of course they’re all like that. I EXPECT it. These guys have a history of being above the law. Look @ Rosey. We’re all sitting around basically counting the ways he’s broken the law, or Comey, or McCabe……

    It’s a job position where one wrong move, one wrong look at things, one wrong signature, one wrong approval and you just commited a felony. Because of that, there’s a long history of these guys in the Deep State just doing whatever the hell they want and nobody does anything about it.

    Just like President Trump can be trapped in a perjury charge on about anything if he does that interview, all these deep state assholes can be trapped in a MYRIAD of ways by laws they’ve already broken.

    Any of them can be prosecuted. All we have to do is get somebody to do it.

    Glad Pres Trump and SoS Pompeo have this: NK has made three explicit demands for the upcoming negotiations; lift sanctions, dismantle THAAD, and no Human Rights issues on the table.(This is China’s position now that Kim has rejoined Greater China as a Tributary state).

    President Neville Chamberlain Moon will visit the WH on 22 May for talks. PM Abe has talked to Xi about cooperation and will host a meeting with China, SK and NK reps. He has also said the time is now to change the Japanese constitution on self-defense and implement by 2020 (the target date that Pompeo said was the goal for CVID of NK).

The YouTubers, who are huge Trump fan, have amassed millions of followers with their videos commenting and praising the president’s every action. On Friday, the North Carolina sisters were spotted posing for a photo with a grinning Don Jr and President Trump.

    Incoming on the US/China trade negotiations. Excerpts posted on Weibo (and Bloomberg and WSJ I think).
    Very tough negotiations Wolverine style.

    People’s Daily (CCP mouth piece) puts a diplomatic spin on the talks that obviously were difficult:

    “China and the United States have reached a number of trade agreements and agreed to set up a work mechanism to continue communicating with each other and to sort out unsolved problems and disputes, after high-level trade talks in Beijing this week.

    Senior commerce officials from both sides fully exchanged views and reached consensus on a number of issues, including the expansion of US exports to China, bilateral trade in services, two-way investment, the protection of intellectual property rights and the resolution of tariff and nontariff measures, Xinhua News Agency reported on Friday.

    However, officials from both countries recognized that major differences still exist and they must step up efforts and make more progress. They agreed to maintain close contact with each other on relevant issues and set up a corresponding work mechanism, according to Xinhua.”

    Need to wait and see the op-eds that will certainly follow in the Chinese press.

    Have often argued that 1799 Logan Act, used as pretext to question Michael Flynn, is dead. So IMHO it’s dead for John Kerry, too. But if you believe Logan Act was used legitimately against Flynn, you’ve got to want a DOJ/FBI Kerry investigation…
