    While I may agree with you, Sunnydaze,: this is not about grammar, it’s about winning elections with words. They drive their agenda with very selected/tested words.

    Low information voters see “Democratic”…more likely to vote for a “Democratic” candidate.

      Twisted reasoning by a conflicted lawyer should not be allowed to interfere with Congressional oversight authority. It violates separation of powers, and in a more pragmatic vein, it makes the Justice Department look like a gangster family that lawyered up to avoid the inevitable. An executive order to bring DOJ into compliance with Congressional subpoenas would go a long way toward solving this whole sordid mess.

    Interesting… Mark Meadows just posted tweet that Lisa Page did get to review documents yesterday. Her failure to appear is purely to avoid testifying and telling the truth.

    Paul Ryan threatens to threaten Lisa Page
    ““I am very disturbed by this. Congressional subpoenas for testimony are not optional. … She was a part of a mess that they have uncovered over at DOJ. She has an obligation to come testify.”

    “If she wants to come plead the Fifth, that’s her choice. But a subpoena to testify before Congress is not optional. It’s mandatory. She needs to comply.”

      FINALLY someone has mentioned this glaring criminal act. Just the fact that HRC’s email server contents and blackberry messages were present on that laptop should have been enough to throw the book at both Abedin and Weiner.

      I find these news items annoying, in that obviously the FBI ignored many, many crimes. In other words, this tweet belongs in the “Tell us something we did not know.” category.

      Most importantly to my mind is that the FBI investigation was narrowly focused on the mis-handling of classified information (which we know resulted in a no-prosecution decision). But the FBI did not look into obstruction of justice (e-mails deleted while under subpoena), lying under oath, possible quid-pro-quo bribery, and if they really were serious, treason.

      How does the FBI get away with overlooking many serious crimes committed by HRC and her aides, and at the same time, show “no bias” in their decisions?

      This story annoys me. The woman had rented an apartment in that apartment complex for 6 mths… which just so happens to be in the same building that Weiner/Abedin had an apartment once upon a time – neither of them live there anymore and haven’t for quite some time.

      The story should be about the woman who died and how she ended up in a trash compactor.

    Lots and lots of issues today. This addition is about science taken over for political (weaponizing) purposes. (The propaganda that enabled cheater leaders of Germany to get rid of coal and nuclear power.)

    An article by Stanford University medical professor John Ioannidis on the supposedly reliable peer review process for scientific articles. http://www.cfact.org/2018/07/10/sacred-peer-review-takes-a-big-hit/

    “[W]hen studies are replicated, they rarely come up with the same results. Only a third of the 100 studies published in three top psychology journals could be successfully replicated in a large 2015 test,” AFP reported, summarizing Ioannidis’ findings. (https://www.yahoo.com/news/beware-those-scientific-studies-most-wrong-researcher-warns-164336076.html)

    “Medicine, epidemiology, population science and nutritional studies fare no better, Ioannidis said, when attempts are made to replicate them,” according to AFP.”

    Why? How does this anti-science activity on the part of pseudo-scientists (fraudsters) happen? (I hope next quote is not too long.)

    “When the alarmist community seeks to push a new argument or messaging strategy in the global warming debate, they first have one of their pseudo-scientists write an article for publication in a compromised peer-reviewed journal. The political left has infiltrated and taken over most science journals that address political hot topics, much as they have taken over most of the “mainstream” news media. This is especially the case regarding global warming issues. As the leaked Climategate emails revealed, editors of science journals typically are prominent alarmists or deliberately coordinate with prominent alarmists in the selection of articles and messaging (see https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2010/feb/02/hacked-climate-emails-flaws-peer-review). The “peer-review process” typically involves the editor sending a submitted article to a team of reviewers who are outspoken climate activists. After the paper is published, global warming activists and their media allies typically cite the peer-reviewed nature of the paper as evidence that its conclusions are infallible. Any who question the methodology or alarmist conclusions are then labeled science deniers.

    All of you people giving our Justice Department a hard time for not getting anything done just need to calm down and take a powder.

    I mean, come ON… Important stuff IS getting done. For instance, just take a look at this:

    “Pennsylvania Man Indicted for Trafficking Turtles”


    So there. See??? Important stuff.

    The Telegraph article Esperanza referenced does have a lot of Trump supporting comments, which can be read, despite the article paywall. Here’s one:

    “You know I really started out not liking Trump. Not wanting to like him. Not wanting to be in agreement with him at all.

    As time’s passed I realise with reluctance that much off what he say’s I do agree with. and about now I have to say I wish he was our PM, because I am heartily sick and tired of our government getting it’s backside whipped by the EU. It’s getting hard to feel proud of being British ,but I suspect that those people who did vote for Trump at least think he is trying to deliver on what he promised them. You might not agree with him and indeed his voters ,but hey at least those voters don’t have to wake up each morning knowing they got duped at the ballot box.”

    This whole NATO trip just highlights how prescient President Trump is when he talks about bilateral deals as opposed to multilateral deals. The Open Borders, Socialist countries in Europe are NOT our natural allies. Yet we are stuck in a deal with stupid nations. In reality we should restructure NATO into a 12+ bilateral defense/trade deals. In the words of someone I greatly admire “We have been governed by stupid people for a long time, we are no longer going to be taken advantage of. We are going to start winning!”

    I know the treepers will remember Anthony Scaramucci. Well his wife split with him when he was with Trump. He’s still a vocal Trump supporter, but she canceled the divorce and he’s been spending more time with her – she Tweeted a couple of hours ago:

    ” Happy Anniversary ⁦@Scaramucci⁩ We made it through the storm. Much l♥️ve in my heart for you today and always. Neva changing.”

    April 18, 2018 Congress referred for criminal prosecution Comey, H. Clinton, Lynch, McCabe, Page, Strzok, Yates, Boente. – https://gosar.house.gov/uploadedfiles/criminal-referral.pdf

    Congress needs to demand an explanation from DOJ why, as of today, July 11, 2018, nothing has been done regarding their referral made nearly three months ago.

    Maybe they can find time right after the Judiciary Committee cites Page to the House for contempt.

    Yeah right.
