      From the Governor’s link,

      “So, if it’s not going to be handled in DC, where WILL it be handled? Robinson suggests that it’s moving from DC to Utah, under U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was selected by Attorney General Sessions to handle cases related to the IG report. Remarkably, Huber operates with a staff of 470 investigators, far exceeding the investigative power of a special counsel. One other possibility, if the cases relating to Awan include allegations of treason or other matters of national security, is that they will be tried in a military court, away from the media and the chance of compromising sensitive information, sources or methods. That lessens the likelihood that any “big fish” will get away on a technicality.”

            Gowdy: I Don’t Think Mueller Probe Is a Witch Hunt

            QUOTE:

            “Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the outgoing chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said he did not believe special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling was a “witch hunt.”

            Gowdy said, “I don’t think it’s a witch-hunt. I have never thought it was a witch-hunt. We now have two series of indictments against Russians, one for social media the other for the unlawful intrusions. Russia attacked this country in 2016. That’s the number-one thing we’ve asked Mueller to look at. What did Russia do? The second part, which unfortunately is where the hyper-focus is, is with whom if anybody did they do it.”

            He added, “No Americans have been indicted with respect to conspiring to impact the 2016 elections. My focus is on the first thing: what did Russia do, and that’s not a witch-hunt, that’s an attack on our country.””

      Well, looks like Rep. HowdyGowdy made at least 3 mistakes in his comments on Face the Nation via Newsmax:
      First, the “Russian agents hacked the DNC” is a nothingburger. The DNC files were leaked from within.
      Second, the United States of American IS NOT a “democracy”, Rep. HG. She is a REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC. And you think you’re “auditioning” for AG?
      Third, Rep. HG decries the concept and practice of open hearings. He says they’re a “farce” and that closed hearings yield much better information. So if that’s the case (which it IS NOT because WE, THE PEOPLE are entitled to have open hearings whenever possible) Rep. HG, then WHY didn’t you do something to change the farcical examination of Peter Strzok into something more substantive?

    The Coming Impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein
    Posted by Trent Telenko on July 15th, 2018
    https://chicagoboyz.net/archives/57643.html

    According to a number of right wing media sites — Glenn Beck’s “The Blaze”, Gateway Pundit, True Pundit among others — Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is going to face a House authorizing vote for an impeachment investigation after Rosenstein was caught out lying to HSCI Chairman Nunes about his communications with former FBI attorney Lisa Page in her testimony Thursday and Friday of last week.

    (See link — https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/07/13/lisa-page-testimony-highlights-deputy-attorney-general-rod-rosenstein-lied-to-chairman-devin-nunes/#comments).

    This impeachment vote will invoke “United States Vs Nixon (1974)” which was a 9-0 SCOTUS decision in favor of Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski during Pres. Nixon’s impeachment proceedings that said there are no “Executive” or “National Security” classification privileges versus a House impeachment investigation subpoena. And thus President Nixon had to turn over the contents of the White House tapes of President Nixon’s office to Jaworski.

          That’s because, with the back up of the media, they decide what is socially acceptable. If one iota of what is said by not only Dems in the populace, but also Dems in government (all you need to do is look at Brennan’s texts), as well as by “journalists” about Trump was said about Obama, the public outcry of RACISM would be deafening. People would lose their jobs and become pariahs.The delusions that are spewed out about Trump as fact, never mind the disrespect is simply flabbergasting. But it is not only socially acceptable to mouth off about Trump, but it earns one brownie points in their social milieu. Truly a sad state of affairs.

    Police in Khan’s London BAN Pro-Trump Rally at U.S. Embassy

    QUOTE:

    “Police in Sadiq Khan’s London have used the Public Order Act to prevent a rally in support of U.S. President Donald Trump outside the American embassy, despite permitting a large, ill-tempered anti-Trump rally on Friday.

    the Metropolitan Police Force, which answers to a large extent to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, used the Public Order Act to impose a raft of restrictions on both groups of protesters which made this impossible — despite allowing far larger anti-Trump protests at which at least six people were arrested to go ahead on Saturday, with demonstrators carrying signs emblazoned with harsh profanity and messages such as “Die Trump Die”.

    I was planning to go to the American embassy to meet with a group of demonstrators who are planning to welcome Trump into the country… it’s really good to see him in this country, and speaking truth to the people in power in this country,” explained David Kurten, an elected member of the London Assembly for the Brexit-supporting UK Independence Party.

    “But as I came out of the police station I was handed this piece of paper by a couple of friendly police officers, who were just doing their job, but they’ve imposed Section 12 Public Order Act conditions on the assembly outside the American embassy, which means that people are not allowed to proceed or have a march or any kind of demonstration,” he claimed.

      How about this: “These alleged crimes took place under the Obama administration. Why didn’t Obama hold them accountable, Jonathan Karl? Have you asked him? Have you grilled him repeatedly?”

      And why didn’t he challenge question the absurd and offensive questioning about CNN and the implication of attacking freedom of the press. Bolton looked pinched and defensive on that one.

      And what is a “real news organization”? Define it, Karl.

    This is now all over the news. Kindly tell me on what basis is one to assume that the issue involves race. She states he called the police because she gave him a coupon that he considered fraudulent or expired. Does any one actually believe that this is the whole story? Another report stated that she was harassing him. Who knows what the truth is. But the race baiting media is off to the races. One media report I read stated he told the police on the phone that she was African American and described what she was wearing. Clearly if you look at the video he was answering a question posed by the person on the other end of the line, but they want to make it appear as if that was something he said out of nowhere in order to advance the racism narrative. Of course all the news articles point out he is Republican and was a state delegate for Trump. What are they trying to push with that irrelevant piece of information? If you go to the woman’s Facebook page they are already blaming Trump and here we go with the Trump is a racist bullcrap. Is there any question that the media is truly the enemy of the people? Agenda driven propaganda has replaced actual news. Of course CVS does no one any favors with their apology. While it is perhaps appropriate to issue an apology based on poor customer service, their “we do not tolerate any discrimination” apology issued before they did any investigation into the matter, pre-supposes what actually happened and fuels the fire.

The managers tried to protect the company and this is the Thanks they get? Cvs throws them under the bus. Next time managers will just let the company get ripped off.

    Thank you President Trump for defending the sovereignty of these United States of America. With this earth being capable of sustaining 144 billion persons I hope that we may all begin to defend each other’s positions while creating from our own. During a time when America’s gathered need to invest with each other as ourselves appears upon us, I hope that each country will begin to see a broader plan of cultural strength as well as togetherness of the unharmed of each other. The Bible clearly states that we as a body are comprised of seventy five percent water so too is the whole of the earth. From that view the united nations world clock’s gauged calculation of arigable land being fixed at five percent though naturally valid is not a permanent restriction. I believe there is a map for this earth which includes our humanity for humans and creatures alike. From an American please know that you are appreciated and that many are believing with you the nearest obtainable healths to us all. May you, your family, as well the gathered world leaders comprised of our humanity enjoy this wonderful excursion. Life’s not all pretty but it can be all inclusive as we provide.
