    Hmmm….. Michael Cohen has hired Clinton friend and ally, Lanny Davis:

    “The president’s allies have long considered the wide-ranging corruption investigation into Mr. Cohen and his business dealings to pose an even more imminent threat to the president than the special counsel investigation. Mr. Davis said he was persuaded to join the legal team after Mr. Cohen said in an interview with ABC News that aired this week that his first allegiance was to his family and to his country, not to the president.

    “Like most of America, I have been following the matter regarding Michael Cohen with great interest,” Mr. Davis said in a statement. “As an attorney, I have talked to Michael many times in the last two weeks. Then I read his words published on July 2, and I recognized his sincerity.”

    He added, “Michael Cohen deserves to tell his side of the story — subject, of course, to the advice of counsel.”

    Mr. Cohen did not respond to a request for comment.

    Mr. Davis is expected to join Guy Petrillo, a former federal prosecutor in Manhattan, in representing Mr. Cohen.”

    https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/mexico-vote-diplomacy-us/2018/07/05/id/870155/ Mexican president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Thursday he will invite US President Donald Trump to his inauguration on December 1, the leftist leader’s latest olive branch after two years of deeply strained ties.

    “We are neighboring countries, we have economic and trade relationships, ties of friendship. It is very important to us to cooperate on development. We share 3,180 kilometers of border. So President Trump will be invited,” Lopez Obrador told journalists.

      NO WAY I want our beloved President to go to dangerous Mexico! If Obrador wants to see him he can go to the White House.

      Snarky – is he reminding PT of how long the border is and insinuating that it will be hard to protect? That’s my take plus it sounds condescending like he’s being magnanimous to a inferior.


      • ecmarsh says:

        Communist always seal their borders so their people can’t leave.
        Maybe Obrador wants to pay for the wall because, he knows it will be built On Time and Under Budget.

    On Tucker Carlson, Michael Pillsbury, DOD consultant, is emphasizing that China is not our friend.

    This came in a discussion of Chinese technology being an entry point for espionage via cell phones, TVs that report user identification back to China, etc.

    Pillsbury made the point that China has ceaselessly looked to discover our military secrets. The most glaring example he cited was that our aircraft carriers armory is at the bottom of the ship holds and protected only by a “thin skin” hull. He says that China learned this thru espionage and then acquired special torpedoes from Russia that approach the ship laterally then turn from beneath to point upward so they hit the ship’s hull at this thin skin.

    Concluded with the point that we’ve been lied to for some 30-plus years that “China is our friend”, ever since the Nixon opening, thru Kissinger and Brezinski and others’ eras.

    Segment was about 40 minutes in on the broadcast, it’ll be less in a video clip with no adverts.

    I’m shaking right now. I just went into a camera store to buy a camera and a light and mic, etc. and they recognized me from tv. I was refused service because they said it was for “alt right” purposes. That literally just happened.

    “Nationwide manhunt snags one of three men wanted in connection to alleged rape of teenage sisters”

    This CN&N story is dated 5 Jul 2018.
    This story was North Coast news on 3 Jul 2018. We have been looking for these animals for two solid days.
    Had CN&N actually cared to help, CN&N would have reported this on 3 Jul 2018.

    But no. CN&N did not want to help. CN&N is telling the at-large animals that ICE is now tracking them.
    CN&N may go directly to hell. imo

    RE Glassdoor, jobs with the fastest pay growth in June included e-commerce roles such as warehouse associate (up 6.8 percent to $43,961 per year), material handler (5.1 percent to $36,179 per year) and truck driver (up 7.3 percent to $54,659 per year), as well as several lower-paying jobs including retail key holder (4.9 percent to $29,746 per year), security officer (4.7 percent to $35,554 per year) and bank teller (8.1 percent to $31,108 per year).

    Wages for cashiers rose by 3.4 percent over the prior 12 months.

    Love Joe Bastardi.
    He is a ‘climate denier’ extraordinaire.

    He was fired from AccuWeather for daring to talk about what a ‘hoax’ the whole global warming thing is…and it’s name-change to using “climate change” for their hoax.

    This guy, Roger Pielke Jr., has written a new paper about the subject.
    And already the climate-change-hoaxers are attacking him:

    Interesting graph here:

      That’s a great article. I’m making my way through it.

      At the center of the current approach is a target and a timetable. The target is to stabilize concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere at a low level. In the past this level was commonly expressed as 450 parts per million carbon dioxide equivalents, and more recently has been expressed as a temperature target such as 2 degrees Celsius (2°C). Under the Kyoto Protocol, the timetables for emissions reduction were specified quantitatively for certain participating counties, and when this did not work the Paris Agreement allowed countries to specify targets for themselves. Neither approach has proved effective at securing emissions reductions, much less making progress toward a stabilization or temperature target.

      Only stupid libs would insist on adhering to a plan that doesn’t produce the desired results.

      Thank you President Trump for pulling out of the Paris Agreement.

    If President Trump visits London, he can visit Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy…what would they say if he brings Assange to the American Embassy for press conference? Keep thinking they don’t want President Trump to visit London! Assange has always agreed to defend American charges on release of information, but refused to come without assurance of fair trial and bail.

    Margaret Sanger founded the American Birth Control League in 1921…which later became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

    Hillary called Sanger “an inspiration”.

    These people were Demoncrats.

      Kkk was started as the ‘militant wing’ of the democrat party.
      The jim crow laws were written and enforced by democrats.
      Martin Luthor King was a lifelong Republican.
      George Wallace, who famously stood in the schoolhouse door, to block desegregation, was a Democrat.

      The 1964 civil rights act passed the house,with 40 more Republican votes than needed, and EVERY Republican in the Senate voted for it.

      And yes, Margerate Sanger believed in eugenics, and planned to place abortion clinics on the edge of black ‘hoods’ to offer free/low cost abortions, in order to reduce the black population.

      In 1920’s and before, MOST Blacks voted Republican, as ‘the party of Lincoln’, so Sanger pitched her plan to Democrats; kill a black baby, they won’t grow up to vote Republican.

      Fun facts to explode liberal heads.

      But,….WE are the ‘rascists’

    Saw this on OANN with Jack Posobiec reporting.

    Strozk testimony (public) next week may have questions that relate to outside private contractors specifically to a connection to military intelligence and the Department of Defense.

    Questions may focus on his work w/ outside private contractors because of this
    email written by Strozk on Sept 14 2016 “cancelled trip to Mission Ridge today.”

    Mission Ridge is office park in Chantilly VA, Mission Ridge 1 & 2 buildings houses private Intelligence and Defense contractors, and is considered a Military complex.

    One company, in particular is Integrity Applications Inc. (IAI).

    IAI : Focus on government, space and intelligence surveillance. Supplier of analysts and support for Intelligence. Focus in Russia, Middle East. Has been paid $41 million in 2016. Strozk mentioned them during Operation Crossfire.

    What was Strozk an FBI guy doing with military contractors?

    OMG! NY Dem supports Repubs because Dems have lost it. Hikind is pi$$ed that Schumer/Dems are not even mentioning some of the positive economic news under Trump.

    RI Dem pols were supporting a couple Repub. candidates over some weirdos that won the Dem Primary, but backed down under pressure and flipped back to the Dem candidates.

    Between this and #WalkAway, etc….things getting interesting.
