    Iran deal never signed, Rush reveals
    State Department confirms it ‘reflects political commitment’

    “That Iran deal? The one that Democrats and Europeans claimed the United States had to honor or the nation would lose its reputation?
    The one that President Trump essentially tossed into the waste this week?
    Never signed.
    Never a treaty.
    Never even an “executive agreement.”….

    ….“So there was never any force of law. There was never any treaty. It was, as I said yesterday, nothing more than Obama’s personal political preferences that nobody had the audacity to disagree with because he’s the first African-American president. But I just wanted to stipulate it wasn’t signed; it wasn’t ratified. The Iranians never signed it. It was never anything that was actually enforceable – and add to the insult of this, we paid them $150 billion to get them to ostensibly behave.” “

      Daily Mail reporting a couple of hours ago that the U.N. chief nuclear inspector has suddenly resigned today, without explanation.

      An excerpt from the top rated reply:
      It might not be that much of a mystery – perhaps too many are too shy (or afraid, in this increasingly anti-free-speech world) to dare say or admit that Tero Varjoranta was a huge fan of Obama. The “deal” was genuinely a disaster that facilitated and indirectly supported no end of evil on a huge scale……. Google “Glazov Moment: Trump Ends Obama’s Evil Iran Deal” and listen to the rather revealing 10 minute talk…….. Trump is a hero – a man who DARES to put ordinary people ahead of ideology and big business – especially the oppressed, voiceless and victimised INCLUDING THE IRANIAN PEOPLE THEMSELVES – listen to the talk if you need a few clues), ahead.

    Sheldon Silver Guilty In Multimillion Dollar Corruption Case/

    By Kaja Whitehouse May 11, 2018 | 5:04pm | Updated

    “The ex-speaker of the New York state Assembly Sheldon Silver was found guilty on Friday of selling his office for $4 million in kickbacks — affirming a 2015 conviction on the same charges that had been overturned on appeal.

    A jury of seven women and five men found Silver, 74, guilty of all seven counts against him, including two counts of honest services mail fraud and money laundering.

    He faces as much as 130 years in prison when sentenced on July 13.

    Silver showed no emotion as the jury read the verdict to the judge.”

        Silver is like Menendez. It takes 3-4 trials until they are finally found guilty. The Menedez trial was particularly disturbing because he was clearly guilty, but the way the statue is written (as in Silver’s case too) bribery and pay for play almost seems to be ok! So frustrating. We need Giuliani to help give guidance on how to re-write these statutes (sort of like how his beautiful laws helped get prostitution and pornography out of Times Square).
        Another great suggestion to to FINALLY make it illegal for insider trading in Congress. That resolution never gets passed. I wonder why (Harry Reid is now gone, is McConnell going to finally push this through?)

              Marcus Molinaro, my county rep just landed the Republican nomination. He’s basically a decent guy in a big government suit. He has shied away from PT, understanding his knowledge of the NYC electorate.

              If he can come out of his shell, embrace PT and if Nixon decides to run third party if she does not win the primary, Marc has a fighting chance.

              As PT says, we’ll see.

Well, Deb Fischer up to some tricks – some people got the following e-mail (note the last sentence), yet she is going to be at the Norfolk VFW Sunday from 2:30 to 5:30, verified by me directly with the VFW! Hmmmm….how can she be in two places at once??? Maybe she is going to use some of her handlers?

    “The following is an email we received about a “get out the vote” event for Fischer this Sunday in Columbus. Please note the final line in the email…

    “On Sunday, May 13th we will be having a GOTV event for Senator Fischer. Here are the details:

    Columbus – 2 p.m. Central – American Legion Post 84, 2263 3rd Ave, Columbus, NE 68601

    We would love to have as many people attend as possible as it is just before the primary and there could potentially be media present. I have attached a flier as well. We hope you can make it and feel free to invite others who you may think want to attend also! Please keep this private as to not fall into the hands of protestors. Thanks so much!

    (Washington) Former FBI Director James Comey sat idly by on Friday while his friend, Benjamin Wittes, who operates Lawfare, a blog Brookings hosts, made a comparison between House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency analyst who stole and leaked classified government documents.

    During an event Brookings Institution hosted, Benjamin Witteswho operates Lawfare, a blog Brookings hosts. asked Comey about a recent battle between Nunes and the Justice Department over records related to a top secret source who has reportedly provided information about President Donald Trump’s campaign to the FBI, CIA and the special counsel’s office.

    Summary: Comey and Wittes are accusing Nunes of being on par with Edward Snowden, because they don’t want the name of

    “…FBI and CIA operative Stefan Halper a foreign policy expert and Cambridge professor with connections to the CIA and its British counterpart, MI6.:…

    ….getting out.

      I thought the same thing earlier today. For several years now, he’s been speaking and voting like a liberal Democrat, so it’s no wonder they like him so much.
      BTW, Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney was fired as a FoxNews contributor today after remarking Sen. McCain was well know in military circles as “Songbird John”. Earlier today in this thread, I posted a YouTube video of a voice recording made in 1969 by McCain while he was a P.O.W. in Hanoi Hilton in which he denounced the U.S. and praised his captors. So, there was obviously good reason he was known as Songbird John.

    Fox Has Officially Decided To Bring Back Tim Allen’s ‘Last Man Standing’

    The previous six-season primetime show was abruptly cancelled for no apparent reason by ABC executives last year, which left the cast blindsided by the decision.

    Tim Allen and the network announced its official decision to revive the series on Friday.

    “Excited? Team LMS was in the sixth inning, ahead by four runs, stands were packed and then for no reason, they call off the game. It leaves you sitting in the dugout, holding a bat and puzzled. Now we get the news from Fox that it’s time to get back out on that diamond — hell yes, I’m excited!” Tim Allen said in a statement that broke the news on Friday. “When I heard the offer to create more episodes of Last Man Standing, I did a fist pump so hard I threw my back out. It’s the fans!”

    “I could not be more grateful for the fans who wrote petitions and kept up the passion and incredible support for the show,” he continued. “And a fist pump, ouch, for Dana Walden and Gary Newman at Fox for not only listening to the fans, but for making the bold move to bring Last Man Standing back. I’m sure audiences will be curious to see what we look like after all these years. Oh, has it only been one year? Well, just goes to show you — a lot can happen in a year.”

    Gary Newman and Dana Walden, chairmen and CEOs at Fox Television Group also thanked Tim Allen in a statement, calling him “irrepressible.”

    California Bill Wants To Drop Washington/Lincoln’s Birthday And Replace It With Communist Holiday

    (Sacramento) The California Assembly discussed a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln and George Washington’s birthday with International Socialist Workers’ Day as a paid holiday.

    California Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago introduced Bill AB-3042, which would allow schools to replace Washington Day and Lincoln Day and install an “International Workers’ Day” — conventionally known as “May Day” — as a second holiday.

    “I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee,” California Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper said to the Assembly. “Are we in competition to be the laughing stock of the United States?”

    “Are we going that far to the left?” Harper asked. “This is ridiculous; this is insane; this is un-American. And for folks who think that the U.S. won the Cold War with the Soviet Union, this makes it sound like we’re going in the other direction — that indeed California is kowtowing to the Soviet domination of the Cold War.”

    The Assembly read the bill three times but refused to pass it by a 27-22 vote on Thursday. But Santiago submitted a motion to reconsider it on the same day. Bill AB-3042 previously passed both the Assembly’s appropriations and education committees.

    I was rereading the Glenn Simpson testimony to the HPSCI ( ) because Martha McCallum mentioned it today. While looking for a particular entry I came across this interesting series of questions and answers starting on page 78.

    Q Did the FBI ever reach out to you or Fusion GPS in relation to the matters that Mr. Steele informed them upon.
    A No.
    Q You’ve never heard from anyone in the U.S. Government in relation to those matters, either the FBI or the Department of Justice?
    A After the election. I mean, during the election, no.
    Q What did you hear after and from home and when?
    A I was asked to provide some information to the Justice Department.
    Q By whom and when?
    A It was by a prosecutor named Bruce Ohr, who was following up. You know, I can’t remember when. It was sometime after Thanksgiving, I think.

    Notice how Simpson acts like he doesn’t know who Bruce Ohr is even though he’s the husband of Nellie Ohr, the woman Simpson employed.

    Q Thanksgiving of 2016?
    A Yes
    Q Did Mr. Ohr reach out to you, or how did that shake out? Originally.
    A I think Chris — it was someone that Chris Steele knows, I think —

    And Nellie had nothing to do with it?

    Q I’m sorry, Chris Steele knows who?
    A Bruce Ohr.
    Q Okay.
    A And I met Bruce too through organized crime conferences or something like that. And Chris said he had been — Chris told me that he had been talking to Bruce, that he had told Bruce about what happened, and that Bruce wanted more information, and suggested that I speak with Bruce.

    Simpson testified on Nov 14 2017. When did we learn that Comrade Nellie was working for Simpson? Does anyone know?


    • LBB says:

      Timeline has Nellie hired May 2016, but I don’t know if we heard about it sooner than Dec 2017.

      “Contacted by Fox News, investigators for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) confirmed that Nellie H. Ohr, wife of the demoted official, Bruce G. Ohr, worked for the opposition research firm last year. The precise nature of Mrs. Ohr’s duties – including whether she worked on the dossier – remains unclear but a review of her published works available online reveals Mrs. Ohr has written extensively on Russia-related subjects. HPSCI staff confirmed to Fox News that she was paid by Fusion GPS through the summer and fall of 2016.”


      • covfefe999 says:

        So it’s possible that the HPSCI members did not know at the time Simpson was testifying on Nov 14 2017 that Nellie Ohr was working for Simpson. They must have been pretty pissed when they found out, because Simpson totally covered up that crucial connection.

      The faulty logic there is astounding. I thought every woman has health insurance now thanks to Obama (puke) so nobody needs to go to PP for care. And there are a bazillion different ways to avoid getting pregnant. There’s just no excuse for the large number of abortions any more. And honestly, there needs to be a better method because puncture-and-shred is something we wouldn’t even do to pests.
