        Janie, I posted that question several days back and then forgot to go back and check if anyone answered it.

          Lucille, I believe Bernie had his finger in the pie and yes, tried to influence approval for the loan – of course he’d deny it because of potentially facing ethics violations. The college only had 195 enrolled students so why was additional land needed for an expansion? It’s not likely they were suddenly going to get a BIG upsurge in enrollments, not in that neck of the woods. Appears to be a scam to me, initiated by Jane Sanders (aided by Bernie) and other unknown parties.

    Strzok on “We’ll stop it” text. “I don’t recall writing that text. But that text in no way suggested that I or the FBI would take action against the candidacy of Mr. Trump.”

    He does NOT recall writing the text

    but then states specifically…

    “stop” text was “in response to a series of events that included then-candidate Trump insulting the immigrant family of a fallen war hero and my presumption, based on that horrible, disgusting behavior” that Trump would not be elected.

      It is said that your nose 👃gets longer when you tell lies. 🤥

      Note that Strozk’s nose 👃now reaches up to the fourth from top, major lateral forehead wrinkle?

      It no longer starts at his brows, but rather starts inches above them, for his lines resembling frown lines are merely nose growth 🤥 lines, as Strzok’s nose had nowhere else to go.

      After all, he had already stretched his nose to the lower limit trying to smell Trump supporters in big box stores. 🙄

      So as he told his lies today, the 👃 growth had nowhere to go but upward.

      And don’t get me started on those little rat teeth: maybe her big teeth were what he admired most about Page.


    • Rhoda R says:

      Notice the sneer lines running from his nose downward. Also the flared and raise nostrils. That’s the kind of look people have who thing they are dealing with unwashed scum.

    Snip from Daily Caller article:

    CNN had a horrible week, managing just 669,000 primetime viewers and losing to the following networks: HGTV, USA, Food Network, TLC, Hallmark, and more. MSNBC fared much better in primetime, finishing third behind HGTV with 1.342 million viewers. (RELATED: CNN Falls To Food Network In Last Week’s Ratings)

    HGTV and Nickelodeon — home of Spongebob Squarepants — wiped the floor with CNN and MSNBC in total day viewership.

    Nickelodeon finished second in total day with 914,000 viewers while HGTV finished third with 814,000. MSNBC trailed behind in fourth place with 763,000, while CNN tied for 9th with the Food Network at 535,000 viewers.

      LOL They just announced to all the Dems who really haven’t been paying attention to what is going on that they really do want to abolish the people who protect them from criminals and people who are coming in to take their jobs. Yes, a great plan. 😀

    This article is from The Gatestone Institute. Interesting. I strongly suspect President Trump’s discreet involvement (with assistance by the UAE) and by doing so, will conceivably curtail/thwart China’s ambition of dominating Africa (and its assets, i.e., minerals resources, metals, etc.). Time will tell. Found this while duckduckgoing regarding what mineral resources both Ethiopia and Eritrea posses.

    “Tantalum is another significant mineral found in Ethiopia. Almost 80% of this mineral is used by Chinese-assembled computers, mobile phones and cameras.”

    Making America great again, as Trump’s campaign slogan goes, means helping Africa rise and stabilize.


    Meanwhile, Trump’s commitment to strengthening U.S. military capacities can and must include due attention to AFRICOM. All these measures — in benefiting Americans, winning goodwill among Africans and strengthening U.S. military capacities in the area — will, in turn, challenge China’s dominance of Africa, gaining America leverage as it moves to challenge Beijing in other ways.

    Original research here: the Prosecutors who dropped charges against Stormy Daniels are both Democrats.

    Joe Gibson has donated to Democrats for at least two decades. (The other Joe Gibson listed here is a mayor in a different town).

    The City Attorney Zach Klein is an elected Democrat in very liberal Columbus, Ohio.

    As so frequently happens, TGP has attempted to turn the story into “clickbait” with it’s misleading title. Not seeing where Oliver Darcy DEMANDS, tho he does ask the question. Which is Bad.Enough. IMO. No need to exaggerate. None.

      hmmm….maybe *this* is why CNN is so suddenly concerned about shutting down InfoWars! Apparently, Brandon Straka was interviewed by them this past week and garnered, os course, a lot more attention to #WalkAway.

      No idea how to post FB stuff off the whole page, but here’s and excerpt of Brandon’s comment there:

      “…The #WalkAway Campaign got TONS of love from Alex Jones and Owen Shroyer and the whole InfoWars family this week. I’ll be talking more with these guys very soon!!‬…”

    Aaand..in more CNN news. CNN’s Prime Time Star, Stormy Daniels, once again in hot water over one of her strip shows. Great heroes you’ve got over there, CNN!



    • sunnydaze says:


    • LBB says:

      Sorry sunnydaze, but they already dropped the charges. Largely because the statue states those who regularly appear nude or semi nude , couldn’t do the touchy thing. To me, that means their profession is define by that level of clothing, but the lawyer/judge combo defined that as someone (in this case strippers) who is a regular at that location, which Stormy is not. Sickening. (Avenatii had docs on his twitter)


      • sunnydaze says:

        Cool that they charged her tho., wether dropped or not.

        Doesn’t detract from CNNs shame in the whole matter.

        She’s being charged or humiliated with something in every other “show” she’s done the past month. Giving strippers everywhere a bad name. hehe.

  31. This appears to have been twice removed from the thread on Peter Strzok’s testimony from today, July 12th. So I’ve copied it and am pasting it here.
    If the original thread shows up I apologize if it appears that I’m spamming.

    Thank you!
    I gave an extensive post on Tucker Carlson’s show last night with Brian McKeadle hosting. There were so many highlights and it was worth watching. The entire post disappeared. Perhaps the links to youtube violated something.

    I don’t know if they did, but if so, I recommend people look up the Tucker Carlson show from July 11, 2018.
    Commentary on Merkel being called out and a distinguished cast commenting on its efficacy (Lou Dobbs, Retired US Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor)
    Commentary on Strzok’s presumption and cold hubris AND on Lisa Page’s upcoming reckoning (God and a re-testosterone’d Congress willing) – John Ratcliffe
    Commentary on Redemption from Social Media = a standout interview at the end between Tucker and Gret Gutfield that ought to be disseminated widely
    Commentary from the Yale Law Professor who taught KAvanaugh and is catching it from the left for daring to praise the choice – I suspect that though he got in many debunked leftist zingers he may soon be joining hte ranks of the LGBT crowd who have left the gaystapo after he encounters the never ending flood of haranguing
    Commentary from the ludicrous leftist stooge forced to have the thankless task of defending the extreme left’s call for the abolishing of ICE – HYSTERICALLY funny to hear him pretend that the left has variety of groups and not groupthink AND to hear him bring up the poor stranded children, after the left has been welcoming with open arms the drug cartel, illegals and sex traffickers who treat these children horrifically with rape, abuse, drugging, etc. – akin to the horrors of the baby killing ‘compassionate’.

    (I’m saving this in case it gets thrown away again as it deserves note…but perhaps belongs in the more general thread? I don’t know)

    Day 15.5. Peter Strzok, Architect of Coup, Still Has Top Secret Clearance/

    George Webb
    Published on Jul 12, 2018

    Why does Peter Strzok still have Top Secret Clearance?


    • Kathy says:

      Greetings, Marygrace … I read somewhere that Strzok’s TS clearance may have been restored so he could review Congressional documents (classified) before testifying. He may have also needed the TS clearance to answer questions in the closed-door Congressional session.


  36. carterzest says:

    have not had time to see if already posted…
    “When officers witnessed those activities, three detectives approached the stage. Daniels allegedly made her way toward two detectives, leaned over and grabbed their faces. She shoved each of their faces between her breasts, court documents said.
    She fondled a third officer’s buttocks and breasts, according to the documents, and then forced the officer’s head between her breasts and smacked the officer’s face with her breasts”

    It would appear the rules are a bit different for Porny/WhoreMe Daniels.


    • Anon says:

      Prosecutor who dismissed the lawsuit gave the statute a ridiculous interpretation.

      It applies to people who regularly appear nude at a strip club – but they interpreted it as ‘regularly appear nude at a particular strip club repeatedly’, which is not at all what the statute says, and is a laughable interpretation.

      The prosecutor here has donated thousands to Democrats over the years, and the City Attorney he works for is an elected Democrat is super liberal Columbus Ohio.

      44% of the American people are clueless? Probably about right, though it’s probably an even higher percentage.

      You can guarantee that even if O came on TV tomorrow and admitted to his perfidy, to weaponizing every Gov’t Agency against his political enemies, as well as to committing the worst political crime in US history, that the percentage would hardly change.

      44% would STILL believe he was the best POTUS in their lifetime.

      But we will STILL have the Supreme Court in our control, so that 44% can go f— themselves, because they are entering a world of hurt for at least the next 40 years.

    1- If FBI agent Peter Strzok had made these kind of derogatory statements about blacks, would the black caucus trust him in a police shooting investigation?

    2- The Republicans are not doing a good job late this evening. Some may be doing more harm than good.
