    Jenny R asked “….I’m beginning to wonder why all the Sessions prosecutors are always so constantly desirous of the President getting rid of him?….”

    I wondered too until Blade answered that question on May 19, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    “….Some of the handwringers here are truly concerned and sincere of course, but there are definite trolls from NeverTrump sites like RedState and PoopScoop who have permanent derangement because they cannot process how wrong they were. When Sessions appeared with Trump at that Alabama rally, and later endorsed Trump despite being outwardly courted by Cruz, he was called a traitor. And the peanut gallery at both sites tore into him. Some of them are here now, stoking the embers. If I had more time I would prove it by finding some copy/paste crossposts they are reusing, but they are mostly not worth the effort. The biggest tell is they never respond when corrected with facts.

    I should point out that there is overlap with the Kristol, WSJ, National Review NeverTrumpers as well, and even though they hate Cruz they are all in on amnesty and the illegal alien invasion. That is the main reason they want Sessions out. Getting rid of him as Attorney General is more important because they win the long game with overwhelming the electorate and know that Trump is a limited 4 or 8 year point in time. These are the actual enemy who need to be crushed, because they are dangerous unlike the low-info know-nothings literally believing every Trump tweet and launching into derangement syndrome diatribes.
    ………..

    “The biggest tell is they never respond when corrected with facts.”

    I saw that just the other day. I almost always cite sources — primary sources if I can, –and yet the response from a Sessions Basher yesterday to my ‘defending Sessions’ on earlier occasions was to make fun of me for getting exasperated about the primary documentation being continuously ignored day after day.

    As far as I am concerned that means TROLL and the rest who piled on are either ignorant ‘handwringers who are truly concerned’ or fellow trolls or those who are brainwashed.

    As far as Sessions is concerned, I started out neutral and looked at the FACTS/laws/regulations, like WHY he or Rudy or anyone else President Trump nominated would be forced to recuse OR be out right rejected.
    ….

    Did you bashers ever think that the recusal was part of the “Insurance Plan” that it did not matter WHO was nominated, what matters was the AG WOULD BE RECUSED or NOT CONFIRMED PERIOD???

      No I did not and I think you are wrong. The insurance plan could not control events like that. Session and the AG appointment? The If Session told PDT he would recuse and why, PDT could have picked some one else. PDT is a VSG. He might have picked some one not part of the campaign if he knew that was why Session would recuse. Sessions recuse is not excusable IMHO.

        Ah, but you don’t really know what POTUS would have done, and you don’t really know whether POTUS and Sessions had already discussed this or not. So much of what happens looks exactly like a sting. POTUS keeping Sessions at arms length and seeming to be unhappy with him will pay big dividends as all of this unfolds. POTUS is a master strategist working against a big worldwide cabal, so I don’t take anything at face value. As he has said so many times before, he is not going to telegraph his moves when there’s a battle going on. And there is, the biggest battle of our lives.

          Trump himself said he would not have picked Sessions if he knew Sessions would recuse himself at the outset. So, I can only go by what Trump said.

          The story of Sessions is good and bad. Good in what he has done for the pedophile investigations and prosecutions. Good for what he has established with the GI and Huber. Bad in that he has left Rosenstein unsupervised and Rosenstein has taken advantage of that and obstructed congressional oversight.

          Worse, Rosenstein has given Mueller extended powers beyond the SC role. Levin points out that under Article II, only the president has the authority to give someone the expanded power Rosenstein usurped and gave to Mueller. To wit:
          “Since Mueller’s lawyers have dual status as US Attorneys, that makes Mueller a US Attorney rather than a Special Counsel. Only a President can appoint a US Attorney. By appointing Mueller, Rod Rosenstein usurped the President of the United States.”
          http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/05/levin-drops-a-moab-new-revelation-muellers-lawyers-obtained-special-status-show-probe-is-unconstitutional-under-article-ii-video/

          So, the story of Sessions is a mixed bag. Does the bad outweigh the good? I think that is a false choice. It should all be good. Moreover, the bad is beyond bad and will likely Force Trump to do something that is not good politically, Fire Rosenstein. Sessions is AWOL.

          And to Combs, I respect many of your posts, but you should not broad brush posters that disagree with your positions. That is all I will say about that as many here have lost perspective on both sides of this discussion.

              President Trump is a ruthless genius who has access to MI which means he has access to EVERYTHING, EVERYONE has done and was doing and yet you seriously believe he was “blindsided” by the SC appointment? You honestly believe he didn’t know what the stupid plotters were up to? If thats what you honestly believe, that PDJT and his team of patriotic spooks are that stupid and inept, then youve been deceived just as the Swamp has. You are a casualty of the disinformation war PDJT has been waging. Fortunately, unlike those on the Left, when you recover you will be happy to realize you were tricked for a worthy cause. Winning. Defeating Global EVIL. Saving our country. I suggest you think of what you’re seeing as a suspense thriller thats being played out. Rather than stressing out trying to figure out what PDJT SHOULD do, focus on what YOU CAN do. Pray, enjoy everything he’s doing that is positive, campaign rather than ccomplain. People like to be on the side of happy, positive winners. Worrying does NOTHING but make the worrier and those around them sick. God bless.

                And it’s interesting to note that the JS detractors have nothing but subjective, emotional argument to support their opinion…..argument that flies in the face of rational, objective reasoning, such as pointing out his appointment of Huber…..which Professor Jonathan Turley, a top national legal expert on government investigations, calls a “brilliant” move.

                Spot on, Cozette. There is a method to the madness to root out all traitors, coup participants and to get Americans of all stripes to pay attention and, ultimately, to demand the precise actions that POTUS and his team have/are taken/taking. This process is a cleansing or enema, if you will, that is much needed to shake America from it’s death spiral. POTUS needs a supportive Senate and House in 2018 elections to complete the agenda by the time he leaves office in 2025. MAGA is real and history is being made. We are all so lucky to have experienced the last horrid 30 years, which will make the next 50 or more so sweet.

              First, we must realize that Trump, brilliant as he is, is HUMAN. He is not “God Emperor”. His appointment of JS seems to have been his biggest mistake. POTUS himself said he would not have appointed him had he known. I believe him and I would prefer an honest mistake than some magical yarn of deception perpetrated on the people by our POTUS.

            And this is a perfect example of one dimensional thinking. For that tweet to be true then Trump *must* be corrupt because in that tweet and the earlier one complaining about the recusal, it would literally mean Trump wanted Sessions to *not* recuse and manage the investigations at DoJ and FBI into Flynn, Manafort, Page, Kushner, Don Jr, Trump ( who appointed him ) and yes Sessions himself. It would mean that Trump did NOT want Sessions to be ethical and follow the law, and he wanted him to ignore conflicts of interest. It would mean he wanted Sessions to ignore the very oath he took over and over as US Attorney and US Senator.

            More proof? Here is what the tweet does *not* say: If I had known there were already ongoing investigations at DoJ and FBI into me and my campaign, then I would have selected someone not conflicted. Besides, no-one was talking special counsel on November 19, 2016. The Russia Russia Russia hoax just got started.

            Once again, all you anti-Sessions jihadists who took the literal words of those couple of Trump tweets as a fatwah against an American patriot ( I’m talking to those who aren’t actually trolls from Trump hating and Sundance hating websites ) are foolish because you are being very selective in which Trump statements you believe. You must also believe …

            * Hillary has suffered enough
            * Trump can shoot someone on 5th Ave and get away with it
            * He can grab women’s crotches and they like it
            * Obama is a natural born citizen
            * Paul Ryan is a truly good man

            … and on and on. He has compliments about McCain, Graham, McConnell, Corker, Rubio, Cruz, Macron, May and Merkel plus tons of others. Are you onboard with *all* of these things now because Trump tweeted them or said them live? Or are you willing to consider that he comments for specific purpose on occasion?

            The purpose of those few Sessions tweets should be obvious. He is stating with clarity that Sessions did NOT consult with him, i.e., they did NOT collude, he did NOT pressure him to not recuse. This is a serious matter ( for outsiders, not uniparty members who enjoy a double standard ) because Trump trying to block an investigation or special counsel is exactly what the trap was supposed to catch. Obstruction would be impeachable.

This has been my point in the past– for Sessions to be undermining ( black hat as some have suggested) Trump you would have to ignore 40 years of Sessions devotion to Law and Order and being an honorable man. I think it would be very difficult to be in Sessions shoes and be characterized as some have when you know the truth.

            The only available evidence is from Priebus in Vanity Fair ( said he did resign and Priebus got him back ) and Sessions himself ( said Trump has his resignation on his desk and can accept it anytime he wants ). So your comment is meaningless because real world events already passed you and your one dimensional thinking by.

            Of course your comment also ignores the reason Sessions is Attorney General. It is because Trump and Sessions are perfectly aligned on all issues ( with the only exceptions being the most liberal social issues ) and in particular the one issue that trumps them all: Illegals, Sanctuaries, Amnesty, Voter Fraud, the Wall, Immigration and Deportations. No other issue matters and if you don’t understand this then you are woefully misinformed. The Russia hoax is NOT the most important issue and doesn’t even merit a fraction of the time spent on it. Why? Because unless Trump does something stupid and illegal then he will not get impeached. Period.

            Trump *and* Sessions must survive. Both of them. Trump must appoint 2-4 more Supreme Court justices and Sessions must hack away at the demographic obliteration we face. Failure is not an option here, it is our last chance. Thinking that Sessions should be replaced is like a cancer patient fretting over a hangnail. Put your stubborn, selfish narrow point of view aside and think of your kids and grandkids because if nothing gets done here, and that is what happens if any RINO was Attorney General ( oh you didn’t know that Giuliani and Christie were amnesty loving RINOs? ) then we’re screwed. Period.

            Here is something I know you hear a lot: you are impossibly thick.

            There was NO talk of special counsel or “recusing” in early November 2016, the Russia hoax had just started, so your grasp of the timeline is an epic fail. Any Trump and Sessions discussion at that time might have went Yes, I promise you Mr. President-Elect that I will return the DoJ to the rule of law and follow my oath to the letter. Surely you understand that if Trump had something like Jeff, in the event of a conflict of interest I don’t want you to recuse, but instead remain on and spike any investigation to protect me, because that’s exactly where you are going. I guarantee that if anything like that had happened then Sessions would have declined the job.

            You have completely missed what Sundance ferreted out and posted here. He correctly deduced there were multiple investigations at DoJ and FBI into members of Team Trump already ongoing long before the election. I repeat, there were multiple investigations at DoJ and FBI into members of Team Trump already ongoing long before the election. That means that as long as Trump won the election and inherited the Justice Department then a conflict of interest would arise because those investigations would be inherited, and either squashed or permitted to continue. Squashing them would be the trigger for Watergate 2.0.

            Furthermore, Sundance also figured out the investigations just got moved laterally over to the special counsel by Rosenstein after Sessions necessary recusal ( he was on Team Trump and a subject of the many investigations ). This has actually contained and isolated most of the perps involved and helped expose them to sunlight, exposure of their actions that we never would have believed otherwise IMHO. Just try to remember what you understood 14 months ago. All we knew about was the Russian ambassador nonsense and that is why many thought the recusal was premature and unnecessary. But behind the scenes Trump and Sessions no doubt were informed of the massive scheming and many investigations.

            What was avoided was Watergate 2.0. This is what I believe was the rough plan. Create a mess of investigations, monitor Trump’s communication ( remember the oval office phone calls ) and catch him attempting to shut them down. Then after a year of Watergate talk haul the gang in front of a joint session of Congress and expose his obstruction of justice and then begin the impeachment or resign play. It’s not that Sessions executed a grand plan, all he did was follow ethics and get out of the way of a conflict of interest. The perps are self-destructing most likely because he recused and they were forced to chase the Russia hoax to its inevitable conclusion – exposing the hoaxers.

            If you actually believe that Sessions “let Trump down” by following the law then what does that say about you Dawn? It says you believe Trump is corrupt, and you wish that Sessions was corrupt enough to help him. That means you are corrupt. Admit it. Be honest. Stop beating around the bush.

        2. Although repeal of Obummercare is on the Republican platform THEY DID NOT REPEAL

        ……

        Brass Tacks
        1. The Senate Swamp is quite capable of vetoing ANY nomination that would be PRO-MAGA, AND not attached to President Trump so would not have to recuse.

        Remember his VA secretary nominee, Ronny Jackson?
        SUNDANCE: President Trump Calls Out Montana Democrat Senator Jon Tester for Malicious Smear Tactic Against Admiral Ron Jackson

        In the Senate there are 51 Republicans, 2 Indies and 47 Democrats. And those 51 Republicans include John McCain, Jeff Flake, Richard Burr, Thom Tillis, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. Richard Burr is retiring and McCain is very much anti-Trump. So yes the Swamp is ideally set-up to veto anyone who was a real threat to the Insurance policy. Especially since McCain and Burr are part of the ‘Insurance Policy’ and Flake follows McCain’s lead. Just those three would kill ANY possibility of getting the 51 votes needed for confirmation.

        1. Any attorney with the least connection to President Trump would be forced to recuse:

        C. DOJ-Specific Conflict of Interest Regulation:
        No DOJ employee may participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with any person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution, or who would be directly affected by the outcome.
        https://www.justice.gov/jmd/government-ethics-outline

        2. Any attorney unknown to President Trump would be recommended to President Trump by others…
        REMEMBER Rosenstien??
        Sessions fired him but President Trump refused his resignations and moved him to #2 spot. Would you want Rosey in #1 spot???

        Jeff Sessions asks dozens of US attorneys appointed by Obama to resign
        ….Many of the federal prosecutors who were nominated by Barack Obama have already left their positions, but the nearly four dozen who stayed on in the first weeks of the Trump administration have been asked to leave “in order to ensure a uniform transition”, a justice department spokeswoman, Sarah Isgur Flores, said….

        Only two prosecutors were held over. Dana Boente, the US attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia and acting deputy attorney general, and Rod Rosenstein, the US attorney for Maryland who been nominated to fill the role of deputy to Sessions. Rosenstein was appointed by Bush and held his post throughout the Obama administration.

        “The president called Dana Boente and Rod Rosenstein tonight to inform them that he has declined to accept their resignation, and they will remain in their current positions,” spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement…..

        ……

        So how about YOUR reasoning backed up by facts???

        Why do these so-called Republicans or conservatives want this?

        Excellent question.

        Currently, many are driven by the mantra of “free trade”, a libertarian and crony Constitutionalist sacrament about muh freedom to do anything they want in a free country with other countries free or not, and got stretched to include freedom of immigration and no borders. Consequence free social justice warrior beliefs regardless of what it does to the country, especially hollowing out the middle class. The Chamber of Commerce easily exploits these idiots and further adds in the concept of a business being free to expand almighty profits by reducing costs both in labor and material by using “free trade” to bring in lower cost crap, and use near slave labor.

        But you want to know the real reason they are onboard and got onboard back in 1965? All the talk back then was about the baby boom ending and population births falling below “replacement levels”. What happened is that the powers-that-be took a hard look at FDR’s ponzi scheme called socialist security and realized it would fail when the baby boomers retired ( since it really *is* a ponzi pyramid scheme where the pointy end of retirees are directly paid from wages of the fat bottome end ).

        So the only answer was to bring in more workers on the bottom end of the pyramid, lie to them about social security being around when *they* retire and take a 15% cut from them while they are alive and working. This is why social security is still “viable” and the only reason. If the population does not stop growing then all is fine ( the population is now +100 million just since 1980 despite us being “below replacement levels” ). BTW, many companies operate this way. If they are not “growing” they are dying. Just ask Wall Street. The worst part? The scum that are doing this all know *they* themselves will be dead and buried like FDR when social security detonates. That is how evil the ruling class is.

But some of the shrieking and name calling is really just beyond the pale, and few things brings that to a fever pitch quite like the subject of AG JS.

      Sessions is a White Hat and we can trust him. The Q information/intelligence drops make that clear, and give indications of why he has had to apparently act in the way he did. He is playing a vital role, not only “acting a part”, but getting so much done behind the scenes. Running commentaries are not part of the overall plan, in order to ensure its success. Don’t expect anything positive about Sessions from the mainstream media. It is/was in their interests to mock and belittle him. That actually indicates that Sessions is not on their side. They have realised that too late to do anything about it.

            I would agree, except it seems almost EVERY article by Sundance over the past year includes Sessions bashing in the comment section. That constant bashing without any real rebutal to the various good points people bring up — Just the repeated use of a few Trump tweets — make me wonder whether it is genuine concern or an agenda.

            We got where we are now as a country because of the constantly repeated ideas of the Left. They LITERALLY wore us down until the Unacceptable becomes Acceptable and then they move on, changing society by increments. (Progressivism)

            THIS is what I am seeing being done with the Sessions Bashing. People like me who are more or less neutral on Sessions finally give up trying to inject facts and LET THEM SHIFT The PARADIGM

    “The Trump Rationale” by Victor Davis Hanson.

    https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/05/trump-rationale-why-voters-chose-him-and-support-him-now/

    It’s a discussion on “why Trump” and is a pretty good read, if somewhat long. But here is an excerpt:

    “Something or someone was needed to remind the country that there is no longer a Democratic party as we once knew it. It is now a progressive and identity-politics religious movement. Trump took on his left-wing critics as few had before, did not back down, and did not offer apologies. He traded blow for blow with them. The result was not just media and cultural hysteria but also a catharsis that revealed what Americans knew but had not seen so overtly demonstrated by the new Left: the unapologetic media bias; chic assassination talk; the politicization of sports, Hollywood, and entertainment in slavish service to progressivism; the Internet virtue-signaling lynch mob; the out-of-control progressive deep state; and the new tribalism that envisions permanent ethnic and racial blocs while resenting assimilation and integration into the melting pot. For good or evil, the trash-talking and candid Trump challenged progressives. They took up the offer in spades and melted down — and America is getting a good look at where each side really sits.”

    Personally, my thoughts on PDJT are summarized in Lincoln’s famous quote regarding General Grant when some suggested Grant should be removed, “I cannot spare this man, he fights”.

      An excellent article with excellent historical context. One thing to add Hanson’s mention of General Patton is that Patton deliberately spoke the “language of the barracks” to his men (my grandfather commanded the 51st Armored Infantry Battalion in the 4th Armored Division, Patton’s favorite division) who loved him for it. President Trump deliberately speaks the “language of the working man” and the base loves him for it (Trump has clearly studied Patton in depth). It’s one the main reasons he is President– and America still loves a winner.

    Both Mike Pompeo and Eric Bolling have tweeted today their alarm because no one has seen Jeff Sessions for a very long time. Both express fear. We all know Mike is Secretary of State. Eric Bolling is “Special Advisor to President Trump.” So both have easy access to the President and, it seems to me, would know if Jeff Sessions is “missing” for a good reason.

    Also, the man everyone here thought was the “informant” or mole in the Trump Campaign, name begins with an H, (sorry) Halpern?, he has not been seen since September 2017. Some other person showed a flying helicopter with a body dangling from it, obviously dead, with comments asking if he has been Arkancided.

    Judge Jennine considers Sessions “the most dangerous man in the GOP”, and she assumes his absence is willful disengagement.

    Given the chicanery on both sides of the aisle, i am at a loss as to what to think about Jeff Sessions. The Sun Tzu book would suggest timing is everything and it’s just not time for Jeff Sessions to play his part yet. On the other hand, if Jeff Sessions needs rescuing, it’s pitiful to think we are attributing his absence to strategy rather than real danger. What do you think?

      That’s okay, I consider her a menace as a Judge, which she thankfully cannot be as long as she is a TV personality ( and I voted for her up here for AG ).

      Just remember how this alleged Judge treated Roy Moore, convicting him on mere accusations ( watch the videos of that period with the vile, #MeToo like angry rants ) and a fake yearbook signature when only saw in a photo. And she never ever reported the exculpatory information as it was uncovered about the fake signature, nor the people that contradicted what the women were saying. Whether you like Roy Moore or not is irrelevant. What she did as an ex-Judge invalidates any authority she has somehow managed to accumulate on TV.

      She is a parody of a “Judge” now. She is closer to Judge Judy really. And I’m not even going into her own personal life which would show she isn’t really that great a judge of character to say the least. If you stop and think about it, she adds nothing to any conversation on her FNC show or even when she is a guest. She is a “presenter” with nothing useful to say.

      And if you want irony then count all the many times she discusses the conflicts of interest that she correctly cites with Rosenstein, Comey, McCabe, Lynch and others. Now ask yourself how she cannot as an ex-Judge see the textbook conflict of interest Sessions had in investigating Flynn, Manafort, Page, Kushner, Don Jr, Trump and himself. She is a fake Judge now. A complete parody of what a “Judge” actually is.

      As I’ve posted before, there had to have been hundreds of people involved in the execution of the domestic surveillance operation that began at the latest in July 2016, and probably before then, and continued for months trough the transition and AFTER the inauguration. It may still be going on. “Just following orders” is not a valid excuse. Everyone involved knew who the real target was (and I include the FISA judges). All those involved are culpable.

      Some of them, I’m sure, really believed that there were Russians to be found. The failure to locate the evidence of President Trump being Putin’s stooge just meant they had to look harder. There are millions of people who believe to this day that there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and many of the people employed by FBI Counterintelligence are among them. All you need to know is to look at the web postings on the other side and their crazed belief that there is going to be an impeachment. Look at what they are leaking. Look at the Mueller team.

      But if you are reading this (of course some of you are, because no doubt we are being monitored) and you have been a part of this travesty, the time to come clean is now.

    Want to repost something I put in the Paul Ryan thread from yesterday. This gives an idea of how early the scheme team was apparently looking to frame and set up Trump and his team for Russia “collusion.”

    This article is from March 9, 2016. Months before Crossfire Hurricane began, and also before Halper met with Papadopolous and Page, I believe. This article also was written before Trump had even formally announced his foreign policy advisers for the campaign.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-embraces-ex-top-obama-intel-official

    Key passage:

    “Flynn declined numerous requests from The Daily Beast to discuss his role with the Trump campaign. “We’ve met informally,” Flynn said of Trump in a text message in January, without elaborating. More recently, Flynn hung up on a Daily Beast reporter who asked him to explain his relationship with Trump and whether Flynn had gone to Moscow on the candidate’s behalf.”

    “whether Flynn had gone to Moscow on the candidate’s behalf”

    The FISA abuse apparently started in November of 2015. Flynn went to Moscow in December 2015, and supposedly had a counter-intelligence investigation opened on him after that trip.

    Also, Halper reported to US intel that Flynn was supposedly close to a Russian woman at the Cambridge seminar they both (Flynn, Halper) attended in 2014. Flynn resigned for the DIA two months later.

    I think the “Russia hoax” has been going on even longer than we may have known. And Flynn may have been the pretext by the scheme team to be able to ‘formally’ drag Trump into the entire falsehood.

      Sorry, MAG, I should have combined this with my other reply. If you haven’t seen it, American Spectator has another interesting viewpoint on the origins of Muh Russia.

      Obviously I have no idea what the real story is, but I’m glad that folks are questioning it and ferreting out information for us. Somewhere in all of this lies the truth…

        Thanks Daughn. I’ve been doing a bit of research in the late 2015-early 2016 time period.

        These rogues seem to have left some bread crumbs there.

        This operation was going on for a long while. The FISA abuse apparently began by November 2015, at latest, so I guess it’s not a real surprise to see some of these references popping up very early in 2016.

      Published Clinton emails from 2015 indicate if Rand Paul or Trump became the Republican nominee she planned to frame them as “soft” on Russia. It was just a political angle she thought would work for her. Try to splinter off Neocon GOP Cold Warriors votes. Deflect from her own Russia ties. Plus her donorscwanted her to take Putin out after she won so turning him into a bogeyman would help gin up public support for the military action her donors had paid for. When Wikileaks published her leaked emails she needed to deflect attention from the contents so she invented the “Russians hacked our democracy!!! OMG!!!!” nonsense her media lackeys pushed. Reading the emails was framed as unpatriotic/aiding our enemy/helping to destroy our democracy. Framing Putin also helped her ramp up the war drums. “This hack is an act of WAR”!!! Of course patriotic Hillary would have gone to war after she won to save us from evil Putin. Since Trump was clearly going to be her challenger, she amped up her 2015 plan to hook him to Putin who she had already turned into a scary monster to deflect from her Wikileak problems. The frame up of Trump began in earnest. I believe she expected her machinations would be enough to defeat him and she’d then use the war with Putin and the Fusion GPS/CIA//FBI character assassination and evidence planting to destroy Trump and his supporters for being traitors. When Trump won, they became unhinged knowing he’d discover EVERYTHING. They had to get rid of him By Any Means Necessary. Recounts hoping for another chance to cheat. Urging EC voters to elect Hillary because Trump is a traitor. Publishing the dossier so Trump would resign in shame 10 days before theInauguration. Riots and calls for immediate impeachment of traitor Trump. Calls in the media for a military or Deep State coup. The appointment of a SC to provide grounds for impeachment. Presidential Assassination porn on all media platforms to activate patriotic crazies. Laying the grounds for removal via the 25th Ammendment. President Trump has survived it all. And thrived. He has now begun to turn the tables on these bastards and they know it. The justice phase has begun. The Punisher will bring the pain. God bless President Trump. God bless all patriots. God bless America. Let us not worry about what others SHOULD be doing. Instead let us be inspired to find ways we CAN help President Trump win this war.

    LEVIN DROPS A MOAB: New Revelation Mueller’s Lawyers Obtained ‘Special Status’ Show Probe is Unconstitutional Under Article II

    Mueller’s lawyers filed for, and obtained an obscure special status giving them dual roles as not only special counsel prosecutors, but also as ‘Special Assistant US Attorneys (SAUSAs) which could make it difficult for Judge Ellis to hand the case over to other prosecutors.

    Since Mueller’s lawyers have dual 
    status as US Attorneys, that makes Mueller a US Attorney rather than a Special Counsel. Only a President can appoint a US Attorney. By appointing Mueller, Rod Rosenstein usurped the President of the United States.

        When you need a double agent you have to find someone totally convincing. Everyone must be completely convinced they KNOW which side your agent is on. And then everyone is wrong. PDJT knows all about double agents. He’s a life long student of the Art of War. Sun Tzu spends much of his book talking about double agents and their importance. PDJT has famously used them throughout his business career. Why would he abandon this life long tactic when he was in a real life war with the forces of evil? He wouldn’t. PDJT and his spooks had access to the best intel in the world. They could find out everything anybody had done and was doing. Do you think these brilliant patriots didn’t know what the sophmoric plotters were up to? Do you think they didn’t know about the plans to get a SC and that they’d decided Mueller would be their guy? Of course PDJT and his team knew. So who do you think PDJT would pick to be his double agent? Who did he meet with twice, the last time the day before the SC was announced? Who might have been grateful for a pardon? Who had a Marine background that could have been appealed to? Semper fi. Who might have accepted a chance for redemption and agreed to be a double agent; appearing to be corrupt while actually creating a honeypot for the plotters, a sedative for the unhinged, a safety valve to organically siphon off Russia hysteria and a distraction for the media so the real investigations could go on under the radar until it was too late to derail them, BTW all of the hot shot Democrat lawyers the plotters picked to be on the SC are being exposed as Avenatti tier hacks. Their reputations are being ruined by being on the SC. Even Flynn benefitted from the SC witch hunt. His nemisis McCabe was destroyed and he got what he’d wanted for over a year; immunity to testify on the record about what he knew from his time working with the Obama/Clinton cabal. He was head of ODNI. Would he know where ALL the bodies are buried? Yep. Was the bullet Flynn took a rubber bullet? Are you absolutely sure the SC has been an overall bad thing? Bottom line it’s made people sick of the Russia BS, exposed massive corruption and turned PDJT from a traitor to an underdog and hero fighting for the American people while the evil Swamp tries to take him down. Its Mr. Smith Goes to Washington heart spliced with the hero/villain pizzaz of the WWE.

          Please, enough with the divisive political labels. It was because enough life long Democrats put their love for our country before loyalty to a party that Trump is our President. Republicans tried to defeat him and then undermine him after he won. As Trump said in his Inauguration speech his victory was not a shift of power from one party to the other but rather a shift of power back to the AMERICAN people. When your heart is filled with patriotism there is no room for prejudice. We are ALL one family. To defeat EVIL all good people must lay aside the differences that normally divide them and with love for each other become bretheran in arms until EVIL is defeated. Imho. Good bless ALL patriots.

    Comey used to work for Lockheed Martin whose contract for F35 planes were paused due to faulty parts by Trump’s DOD has been implicated in gang stalking covert operations during and before the Obama administration. These ops increased exponentially under Obama.

    President Trump was definitely one of their Targeted Individual. Incidently, Lockheed Martin stocks are dropping. Boycott!

    Also wonder no more about these gun shootings and massacres where real people died at the hands of FBI psy ops. A lot of voters will awaken if educated about things like this akin voice to skull technology utilized by CIA/FBI contractors to own the populace especially in light of the framing of PDJT.

    Gang Stalking and the Federal Bureau of Inversion

    2013 article features a photo of Mueller and Comey with caption:

    FBI director James B. Comey (right), formerly of Lockheed Martin, Bridgewater Associates and HSBC, with his predecessor Robert Mueller III, formerly of Hill & Barlow and Hale & Dorr

    http://disturbinganomalies.blogspot.ca/2013/09/gang-stalking-and-federal-bureau-of.html

    The now-iconic tragedy at Columbine High School is a perfect example. The task force that investigated the massacre was composed of teams, virtually all of which were headed or co-headed by an FBI agent. The only exception was a team headed by an agent of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) who had previously served in the FBI.

    The overall head of the investigation was FBI Special Agent G. Dwayne Fuselier, a military psychologist and a hostage negotiator who had been involved in the Montana Freeman and Waco sieges. It soon surfaced that his son, a student at the school, had produced a video featuring trench-coated gunmen firing through the halls of the school before it is destroyed. The video was produced by Brooks Brown, a close friend of the Fuselier brothers and of Harris and Klebold. Brown was officially the last person to see or speak to Eric Harris. Police believed he knew more than he was letting on and there are indications in the documentary record that he may have had foreknowledge.

    A note read “An ultra low frequency attack is what I’ve been subject to for the last three months, and to be perfectly honest, that is what has driven me to this.” (Reference to Columbine)

    We know that Alexis reported hearing three mysterious voices everywhere and that he was being harassed with a microwave weapon. Perhaps a deeper purpose behind this electronic harassment was to induce him to contact the police (or someone) about it and thus forever “sheep dip” himself (as they say in intelligence circles) as a paranoid schizophrenic. If that wasn’t the purpose, it was certainly the result. Afterward, the FBI could plant this electronic confession, its credibility established by the police report, in his backpack.

    These experiences closely parallel those who suffer “gang stalking,” and there is at least one other alleged ‘spree killer’ who claimed to be a targeted individual – the term victims of gang stalking operations use to describe themselves. Many others have described varying degrees of surveillance or harassment that strongly parallel the claims of these alleged “TIs.”

    On January 29, 2011, Central Coast News ran a story titled Gang Stalking, “Bullying on Steroids”

    Police call it “bullying on steroids.” They are referring to gang stalking, and it has nothing to do with the gangs you’re probably thinking of.

But they hate the US and are sophisticated about defrauding our social welfare benefits. A couple of them used their college student loan funds to pay for their trips overseas to fight the infidels.

My trade agenda aims to accelerate American exports through policies that are focused on rebuilding our industries, strengthening our national security, and equipping our workforce with state-of-the-art skills.

    I am continuing to renegotiate and revise our Nation’s trade deals to benefit American workers and employers. My Administration will continue to take concrete action to restore America’s capacity to compete in an increasingly international market.

    Since Matt Gaetz is on the news so much, I’d like to mention a few things about him since he represents my Congressional district.
    I guess the first thing is he is a REAL representative and probably the hardest working one I have ever seen in the 48 yrs I’ve been voting.
    Twice a week, he e-mails updates about what is going on in Congress and in DC. He talks about the legislation and explains his votes. He is also following the Mueller illegal witch hunt closely.
    When Congress is not in session, he is in the district conducting events, arranging appointment times with constituents and holding town halls. He is constantly working for the district. I attended one of his town halls and he interacts with the attendees unfiltered. That takes guts IMHO.
    Gaetz follows his heart and his heart is MAGA. He has mentioned all the pressure the established pols have directed towards him but he has not let it stop him. Gaetz is tough.
    Matt Gaetz puts a incredible amount of energy into representing our district. If every Congressional district was represented by the same quality, the USA would be back to operating like the founders intended.

      Aaaaah, the poor Starbucks customers all they want is to pay good money (too much) for a so so cup of coffee and contemplate their life in a clean, safe environment with their fellow Starbuckers. My tear drops are large (snark).

      As a Trump supporter all I want is NOT to pay too much in taxes and be able to live my life in a clean, save environment with my fellow Americans; and somehow, there is something wrong with me?

      Funny, but this is the hypocrisy of liberals and the influence of having a propaganda press. There are enough tools and useful idiot who would believe Obama/FBI were “protecting” Trump but the same scenario means Trump is undermining Obama. That folks is how Tyranny begins! We were almost there.

          President Trump is doing more for the Black Community in 16 months than Obama in 8 years! “Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding the House of Representatives’ Passage of H.R. 5682 – the FIRST STEP Act”. 1 in 4 Blacks are involved in criminal justice system…whether as criminals, parolees, police, corrections, etc…

            Sick of kowtowing to black communities.

            This new legislation backed by Van Jones and Koch brothers and pushed by Jared Kushner and or her liberals. It’s another $250 million GOVT program and will do nothing to stop the incarceration of blacks. The inner cities run by Dems have 80 percent of kids living in fatherless dwellings with baby mamas who have kids for the welfare benefits. Stop that and the overcrowded jails and prisons will go away.

              Flova You are correct when you say this bill will notvstop the incarceration problem. It is not intended to. PDJT and his team have a multi pronged approach towards dealing with THAT problem as is caused by a variety of intertwined factors. The bill is focused on people who HAVE been incarcerated. It is not aimed at Americans who are black but Americans who are or were incarcerated. Like all of PDJTs policies they benefit black Americans TOO. Do you know where your animus comes from? It’s palpable btw.

        If they were really concerned about the background of anyone trying to work on the campaign, they had a duty to warn Trump. It was certainly the furthest thing from their minds to “help” him in any way.

    TURLEY: SESSIONS APPOINTING UTAH FED PROSECUTOR MUCH BETTER THAN 2ND SPECIAL COUNSEL: CALLS MOVE “BRILLIANT”

    WASHINGTON, DC – Professor Jonathan Turley, a top national legal expert on government investigations, commented about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to bring in U.S. Attorney John Huber. Turley called it “brilliant” to combine all the powers of the U.S. Department of Justice’s inspector general with a prosecutor who can bring charges, seek indictments, and get results for President Trump FAR MORE QUICKLY (emphasis mine) than a second special counsel.

    Turley is a law professor at George Washington University, who attained national fame during the 1998 impeachment of President Bill Clinton as a top legal authority on special counsels and congressional investigations of government wrongdoing, including criminal wrongdoing. His reputation has only grown during the intervening 20 years, as he has weighed in on scandals and investigations of public officials from both political parties.

    Sessions informed Congress in his letter that all the matters recommended for investigation by Goodlatte, Gowdy, and Grassley are “fully within the scope of [Huber’s] existing mandate.” He also informed the chairmen that Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is working with Huber, has a staff of 470 investigators, giving Huber access to enormous investigative firepower that far exceeds the staff of any special counsel.

    That point is critical because, as Sessions’ March 29 letter explains, the inspector general’s jurisdiction to conduct civil and criminal investigations includes “actions taken by former employees after they have left government service.” Huber can act on any of those matters.

    “The Inspector General’s jurisdiction extends not only to allegations of legal violations, but also to allegations that Department employees violated established practices as well,” Sessions added in his letter, which means that the IG’s report can hold people accountable even for actions that do not violate a specific statute.

    “I think [Sessions] did the right thing here,” said Turley.

    “Do these prosecutors have the same power to investigate and get to the bottom of things that a special counsel would have?” Varney asked.

    “Actually, yes,” Turley answered. “I think people are missing what could be a brilliant move here by Sessions. What he did is he essentially combined the powers of the inspector general with the powers of a line prosecutor.”

    “This prosecutor does have not just the experience and training to look for a criminal case; he has the ability to move a case of that kind” in court, Turley emphasized.

    Not only that, but if Sessions believes crimes were committed, but Huber for some reason does not bring charges, “Sessions has reserved the right to go ahead and appoint a special counsel,” said Turley.

    “That’s a powerful combination,” he observed.

    Turley said President Trump should be very happy that Sessions chose this route of appointing Huber, who has the power to seek indictments and prosecute cases, and teamed him up with Horowitz, who has 470 investigators at his disposal, if the president wants to see swift and decisive action.

    “If a special counsel were appointed, there would be a great deal of delay,” Turley stated, versus the team of Huber and Horowitz.

      Lets hope Huber has been given lots of resources, as we don’t know how many he has on his team or what their back ground are. Some times I imagine that when his team arrives for work and take off their overcoats they have Military Uniforms underneath….my dream, but hopefully he has a large team of patriots assembled for this huge task.

      Maybe the pressure from Congress for another 2nd SC, is to force changes within top DOJ, sure there is a plan… and trust PDJT to complete his 8 years and drain the swamp…

      Next 6 months will be interesting, leading up to Military Parade on 11/11 to proclaim Freedom from Deep State, seems PDJT has a time frame…..

        I hope it all goes away long before his second term starts, for the more time he has to spend fighting the witch hunt means the less time he can spend on governance.

      I also caught just a little of a Lou Dobbs show in which he also has come around to this, realizing a second special counsel is not the best way to proceed to achieve actual indictments/convictions soonest. Yay!

      I do not for a moment impugn the motives of those crying for a second special counsel – all those hearts are in the right place for sure.

      Yes, the preparations take a long time, but then things will likely move very quickly. Much better than speed up the prep and have the actual move slowly.
      Make haste slowly after all 😉

      Or is he a play nice, no one was hurt, move along, losing their job was enough type.
