    Caputo Demands Dems Stop Sexualized Attacks

    “In the wake of a USA Today columnist’s attack on his toddler daughters, former Trump campaign director Michael Caputo is demanding Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz and the local Democrat Party stop funding a Western New York media company promoting sexualized attacks on his family.

    After columnist Cheri Jacobus posted several tweets suggesting Caputo’s toddler daughters should be raped, he organized an online campaign to alert USA Today and The Hill newspapers to their writer’s sleazy comments. Friday morning, USA Today announced that they fired Jacobus and The Hill newspaper is said to be considering the same course…..”

      This horse has already been beaten to death earlier in this thread.

      A city that four times elected an admitted crack-head and convicted felon as mayor is not about to engage in a character debate about anybody. This license challenge was something done by Dem puppets simply to grab a negative headline and several minutes on national news networks. Give them credit for one thing: they accomplished their mission.

    It seems PTrump would not like to touch DOJ/FBI until this fake Mueller investigation is closed officially. Mueller would make sure all his friends, democrats, deep state bad actors have cover-up/immunity so PTrump can not do anything later and also sending message that deep state would come up later if anyone tries to work/help Trump.

      CTH lawyers….please help me out here. My non-legal, common sense approach to life and legal matters tells me that if the granting of immunity is later shown to be part of an illegal conspiracy to cover-up crimes of those granted immunity, then any immunity granted is washed away.

        It’s only granting immunity for testimony, not blanket immunity — he can be charged with other things. It kinda sucks, giving him immunity for the testimony, but if he’s guilty of other stuff (I’m pretty sure he is) then he doesn’t get immunity for that.

        You are correct.

        If prosecutorial misconduct can be attributed to the granting of immunity (and there is a LOT of prosecutorial misconduct here), then said immunity can be deemed invalid.

      • ristvan says:

        Lurking Lawyer here. The circumstances under which a grant of immunity (use, as here, or blanket—theoretically different scopes) can be revoked by a court are very difficult to achieve because of the generally very useful doctrine of unassailable prosecutorial discretion. Has been commented on before on other threads. One example would be where you could prove unequivocably that the prosecutor exercising ‘discretion’ had been physically bribed/blackmailed to do so. Very high hurdle, probably not clearable here.

        The Deep State corruption is quite clear. Immunize Deep State ‘criminal’ Podesta to ‘get’ the Trump ‘criminal’ Manafort. The general solution is at the upcoming midterm ballot box.

        Perhaps that is Trump’s master plan. Remember he holds absolute pardon power to right perceived injustices, and has already used it several times. And this is building into a BIG injustice. Recall he pardoned the Navy submariner who spent a year in prison for lesser national security crimes than HRC committed. Thereby calling national attention to the unprosecuted HRC NatSec crimes omey absolved her of. Trump is a master of this stuff. IMO, He is letting Mueller/Manafort play out so far for possibly multiple good reasons. Manafort doing much stuff for many $millions for Yanukovitch is not pretty, all by itself. So a series of other operative lessons are being taught by Trump by analogy.

          If Manafort was a hired-on contractor, hired by the Podesta company, could he use that as a defense that he was doing as his boss or contract required, following their lead? and then use that as a way to present to the court that him being prosecuted is just that, a play to get the ‘bigger criminal’ (Podesta’s) immunity? That he is being prosecuted purely for political means?

      Gack, I’m so sick of this…(nothing personal on you, but we have to realize why this gets continually brought up and head it off)
      The President is NOT an agent of Putin. If anybody DIDN’T collude with Putin it was Donald J. Trump.
      It does appear as though HIllary and Obama colluded with Putin, or at least Russian agents with connections to Putin — on many occasions.
      Yes, Russia meddles in our political system — that’s just one of those things. It’s a known thing. Doesn’t make it right, and the President was wise in slapping Putin around a bit for this (don’t think he didn’t).
      What the President is willing to do is keep lines of communication open with Putin because that’s what leaders of countries do — keep lines of communication open so nasty little things like wars don’t happen.
      That’s not collusion; that’s being a normal, responsible, sane leader — which one would hope people would recognize as a good thing.
      I’m so sick of the media and the uniparty worrying this issue like a well knawed bone — they’re trying to make it THE narrative….feckless ________.

    Perhaps it is because I read books instead of watching TV that I don’t need immediate gratification. I don’t find it necessary; that what needs to be done, has to be done now in the 60 minute time line. I prefer that action necessary that so many here crave be done when it can be effective. When the real truths are laid out the socialist propaganda networks, also known as the MSM, will lie and we all no it! However; if it is timed properly then President Trump can hammer home the truth while campaigning from state to state in support of those he needs in D.C. To drain the swamp. It took us decades to get here, it will take years to clean up.

Download the ebook to your personal storage—NOT the Cloud, Mine is a 500 GIgabyte Computer hard drive backed up by a 2 Terabyte hard drive auxiliary (cost about $80).

Reading strenghtens your neural pathways “If people remark about how nice you are, you can thank reading for your demeanor. People who read are more likely to act in a socially acceptable manner than people who are glued to the TV, according to the researchers. A group of people were asked their leisure activity was reading or watching TV. Then, interpersonal skills were tested. The results showed that people who preferred reading fiction showed positive social behaviors, and were empathetic. But those who preferred watching TV came across as less friendly and less understanding of others’ views. ” See example above.

      “Mueller is begging to be fired.”

      Indeed.

      In fact, things have gotten so over the top, one HAS to wonder if it is not part of a insider plan.

      GOAL: Outrage fair-minded voters (with the knowledge that the far left will never be objective….some 24% of voters) causing them to support the PResident.

      RESULT: The beginning of the #WalkAway movement, whose roots are in any number of things, this being just one of them.

      It is FACT that Mueller is not harming PDJT as much as helping him in the minds of American voters. A majority now see it as a “witch hunt”, and the longer it goes on the more and more people are coming to see it as such.

      CAUTION: VSG at work. If you REALLY want to understand him, you must become adept at counter-intuitive thinking.

    Brennan, Comey, Strzok, Clinton, Globalist, Left and some Republican etc. are attacking PDJT because they are fearful of going to jail for a long time; they are fighting for their lives. Many Republicans are fighting for the business round table and the chamber of commerce. They will increase their attacks and do anything to bring down PDJT. They are all having a mental breakdown.

    They are hoping Mueller will be able to get Manafort to write a false story and for the democrats to take over congress to impeach PDJT. The withholding of documents is to run out the clock for the Nov. election.

    The attacks by the criminals is a good thing because it shows they are doing the only thing they can do to survive. They do not sleep at night and seeking comfort by all working together to destroy PDJT and his entire family.

    I thought PDJT would have required indictments no later than June 20, 2018, changed to July 15, 2018…apparently, I was wrong again, and again and again…PDJT has a plan and I believe 100% he will implement it soon when he is ready. IMO-PDJT should not wait to much longer and take the 1% chance that the democrats take control of congress in Nov…the globalist/elitist are cable of rigging the voting machines. AND, PDJT implementing justice will win over at least 10 million more voters. 1% chance is too high!

    Only PDJT knows what is going on behind the scene. The server, dossier, bias texts will only give PDJT a major battle victory; but this battle victory could possibly further add/substantiate the evidence to the Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s emails and uranium one and for PDJT to win the war. Indictments, convictions and plea deals could create direct witnesses for the government to the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s emails. I feel it is important not to get intentionally distracted and lose sight of the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s emails. A few convictions would be a great outcome for Hillary/Globalist to save their enterprise. This will eventually lead to uranium one and all the possible criminal acts around the world. I believe we have all seen the money trails and flow charts for the Clinton Foundation, created by many investigators showing the many possible criminal acts. Grand Juries for the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Emails is the only way for PDJT to save the constitution and the United States…otherwise Hillary and the globalist/elitist wins. I hope soon CTH / Sundance will eventually connect the dots to the Clinton Foundation/Hillary Emails/Uranium One, for everyone to understand. That will be interesting!

    PDJT has all the power to implement justice and he will implement Justice. PDJT will not risk himself, his family, his voters, constitution and the United States. The enemy will destroy all of us if they have the chance.

        1. Huber should already have several grand juries impaneled.
        2. PDJT’s red line; fires everyone explaining he must save the U.S.
        3. U.S. Marshals takes over the FBI. (Judicial Watch Recommendation)
        4. New Justice Department implements grand juries.
        5. Special Counsel impanels grand juries.
        6. PDJT unknown strategies to implement justice.

        Let say that 1 in a million happens and PDJT plan for indictments are not implemented by a betrayal that crosses his red line… I believe PDJT will not worry about the political hit because his base will not leave him and he will lose everything if he doesn’t fire everyone when his red line is crossed. IMO-there is no political hit for firing everyone when his red line is crossed because the firing is justified by the rule of law and to save the United States. Wouldn’t the people who was supposed to implement justice be aiding the criminals.

        PDJT knows there are going to be indictments.

      Rewrite what he just said….

      “If Mueller has dumped both his Russian indictments….It means they are dead ends.”

      CONSIDER: A Special Prosecutor who is truly after someone doesn’t dump indictments into dead ends.

      Everyone is in a kerfluffle over Mueller, but he hasn’t touched a hair on PDJT’s head. In fact, his SC has actually helped PDJT in the polls of voter opinion.

      REMEMBER: Trump could fire him at any time, but he hasn’t.

      Do you HONESTLY think that’s because PDJT is a coward, doesn’t know what he’s doing, and/or won’t take action where he sees it necessary??

      Think counter-intuitively!

      (NOTE to the pessimistic, consistently negative Eeyores, this is not a defense of Mueller. Simply a statement that not all in DC is always as it seems and counter-intuitive thinking is a MUST.)

        AND Huddleston was sentenced to time served (63 days in custody, plus 63 days for good behavior), three years probation, and he now has to register as a sex offender beginning in September 2018.

    IAF jets on Friday evening conducted a wide-scale attack against Hamas military targets throughout the Gaza Strip following a severe shooting attack against IDF soldiers earlier in the afternoon.

    As of 10:00 p.m. Israel time, the IDF struck 15 military targets located in a Hamas battalion headquarter in the northern Gaza Strip.

    The IDF significantly damaged the headquarters’ capabilities, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

    In MO our primary is August 7. Today I received 4 flyers for Democrat candidates, some of them for the second or third time, and a flyer against the Right-to-Work which the legislature passed last year and which is now on the ballot. The big money obviously can be seen everywhere – including outstate Missouri – trying to ensure that the Unions maintain their grip, and any facts used in their advertisements are carefully skewed.

    Where are the Republicans? And for all those claiming that it will be easy to get rid of Claire McCaskill in MO, I disagree. I hope I am wrong. In my opinion President Trump endorsed the least MAGA and most GOPe candidate in endorsing our new young Attorney General, Josh Hawley. Last I saw her war chest was over $11 Million and Hawley’s was slightly over $2 Million.

Not terribly worried – last polling showed Hawley and McCaskill in a dead heat and that’s BEFORE the primary. I fully expect this seat to move to the GOP column.

      I’m running for Congress in Missouri’s Second District because there is too much at stake to sit on the sidelines. Just a few months into this administration, it’s clear that establishment politicians in Washington will sacrifice our health care, our education, and our system of checks and balances just to score political points.

      I’m not a politician. I’m not running for office based on family connections or independent wealth. I’m running because I believe the only way we can make government work for all of us is by sending people of integrity to Washington.

      So if you’re ready to send a message that Missourians demand better, join me. Together, we can make sure that Washington doesn’t just work for the powerful and well-connected, but for real folks with real dreams here at home. I hope to see you on the trail, and I look forward to earning your vote.

      You must have seen this:

      https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/07/distinguishing_civil_war_from_social_anarchy.html

      Conservatives wish to roll back the damage that the socialists have done; socialists wish to finish their social experiment at any cost.

      At the same time, incidences of the collapse of the federal government’s attachment to the rule of law have become too numerous to keep track of. From Bush’s signing statements to Obama’s autocracy by executive order, the executive branch has made a mockery of the Constitution’s spirit, and sometimes of its actual letter. Administrations from both parties have felt free to pick and choose the laws they were inclined to enforce and blatantly disregard the rest. States and municipalities, too, have snubbed federal law. One need look no farther than marijuana legalization or sanctuary cities. The law is no longer respected as an institutional framework for society; rather, it has become a kind of procedural plaything for politicians and their retinues of attorneys. Since laws are only as meaningful as the willingness to enforce them, we have transitioned, little by little, from a nation of laws into a nation of authorities ruling by thinly disguised fiat.

      The biggest danger in the near term probably isn’t a civil war per se. Although the creation of large, well organized militias isn’t utterly out of the question, they are not materializing yet. There are still law enforcement entities willing to suppress them.

      The immediate threat continues to be the uncontrolled escalation of social anarchy. The left has let the genie out of the bottle. The leftists’ leaders are now beginning to discover that the genie has a mind of its own.

      Decades of leftist indoctrination have created a weaponized generation of loosely organized, pseudo-anarchistic, multicultural dreamers. A small but relevant proportion of them will be willing to burn, loot, and kill in the name of tolerance and social justice. Their soft, ex-hippie progenitors cannot restrain them. As the saying goes: Once the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend.

      Unlike the hippies of the 1960s, today’s young radicals have no state of normalcy to return to once the drugs and the political poetry wear off. Many social justice warriors learned to hate long before they took their first tottering steps in a university-sponsored protest. It is hard to imagine them dropping their placards and becoming insurance agents – as many ex-hippies actually did. Even without the danger of militia armies, we are facing a kind of hideous synthesis of Mao’s Red Guards and the Manson family. This is not a military force, but a home-grown cadre of terrorists, dedicated to Western civilization’s destruction. The longer it takes the Trump administration to take them seriously and slap them down, the uglier and more destructive their actions will become. It may still be possible to suppress them with the police, but it would require a level of resolution unconcerned with our opponents’ level of outrage.

        Worth repeating. It was suggested early on that Trump organize a “war room” dedicated to subverting the media and the far left. That is, to go on offense. No such action-oriented awareness has taken hold. We’re still on defense.

          He did not require recusal of his inferior officials who had worse cases of conflict of interest than he did himself. Sessions could have and should have required any with conflict of interest to recuse, even after his recusal, but instead he recused himself from all the managerial head-administrative responsibilities of AG.

    WSJ:

    Scott Smith, the assistant FBI director who runs the Bureau’s cyber division, is leaving this month. His deputy, Howard Marshall, also left in recent weeks. Mr. Marshall has accepted a job at Accenture , a consulting firm that is expanding its cybersecurity portfolio. Mr. Smith is also expected to move to the private sector.

    David Resch, executive assistant director of the FBI’s criminal, cyber, response and services branch, is departing the bureau as well. Mr. Resch, who was named to his senior post by FBI Director Christopher Wray in April, supervised Mr. Smith and Mr. Marshall.

    Additionally, Carl Ghattas, executive assistant director of the FBI’s national security branch, has decided to leave for the private sector. And Jeffrey Tricoli, a senior FBI cyber agent who oversaw a Bureau task force addressing Russian attempts to meddle in U.S. elections, left last month for a senior vice president position at Charles Schwab Corp. , the Journal reported last week.

    The FBI confirmed the departures. One U.S. official said more people are expected to leave soon, declining to provide additional names.

    Several people familiar with the moves said that while it was abnormal to see so many senior-level people leave at the same time, it wasn’t uncommon for agents to depart after becoming eligible for retirement benefits at age 50. However, Mr. Marshall’s exit was seen as “highly unusual,” according to one person, because he is stepping away before retirement age.

Russia itself admits that Iran’s withdrawal is “absolutely unrealistic.” Trump should not concede American positions, notably the strategic base at Tanf which blocks Iran’s path to the Mediterranean, for empty promises from Russia.

It is correct to not trust their words at face value and always consider history when dealing with them. They do have a tendency to be historically predictable on some issues.

          Their bases and Assad’s survival will be their price. Iran is a business deal and Iran has no track record with them. So, as far as Iran’s future in Syria is concerned, that one s negotiable. Iran also has problems at home, making their reliability in Russian eyes suspect, and I suspect they have not been able to pay their bills with respect to the Russians, as well.

          I’ve always thought that part of the reason Putin propped him up was Assad’s protection of the Eastern Orthodox Christians, which is the same church Putin has restored in Russia.

            Sounds good for PR but that’s not the real reason. Russian rulers are pragmatic and Orthodox Church has a long history of reciprocation to those who are their protectors. Its a symbiotic relationship.

    LISA PAGE ADMITTED “NO THERE THERE” ON RUSSIA PROBE

    http://thehill.com/hilltv/rising/397902-opinion-one-fbi-text-message-in-russia-probe-should-alarm-every-american

    (excerpts)

    “on May 19, 2017. Strzok texted, “There’s no big there there.”

    Since the text was turned over to Congress, investigators wondered whether it referred to the evidence against the Trump campaign.

    This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses.

    The admission is deeply consequential.

    It turns out that what Strzok and Lisa Page were really doing that day was debating whether they should stay with the FBI and try to rise through the ranks to the level of an assistant director (AD) or join Mueller’s special counsel team.

    “Who gives a f*ck, one more AD like [redacted] or whoever?” Strzok wrote, weighing the merits of promotion, before apparently suggesting what would be a more attractive role: “An investigation leading to impeachment?”

    Lisa Page apparently realized the conversation had gone too far and tried to reel it in. “We should stop having this conversation here,” she texted back, adding later it was important to examine “the different realistic outcomes of this case.”

    A few minutes later Strzok texted his own handicap of the Russia evidence: “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there.”

    So the FBI agents who helped drive the Russia collusion narrative — as well as Rosenstein’s decision to appoint Mueller — apparently knew all along that the evidence was going to lead to “nothing” and, yet, they proceeded because they thought there was still a possibility of impeachment.

    Impeachment is a political outcome. The only logical conclusion, then, that congressional investigators can make is that political bias led these agents to press an investigation forward to achieve the political outcome of impeachment, even though their professional training told them it had “no big there there.”

    And that, by definition, is political bias in action.

    RUBIO, SCOTT TORPEDO 9TH CIRCUIT NOMINEE

    Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Tim Scott torpedoed a conservative nominee to the Ninth Circuit appeals court on Thursday whom even liberals called qualified for the bench, energizing Democrats, and creating a new line of attack against the confirmations of dozens of other judicial picks, including Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.

    Rubio made a pact with Scott to vote no on Trump’s nominee, promising that Republicans would vote the same way. Both senators voted “yes” on Bounds in the procedural vote, and the Senate Judiciary Committee approved his nomination in an 11-10 vote in June.

    But instead of letting the White House and the Senate Judiciary Committee know of their misgivings about Bounds months ago, Rubio and Scott raised their concerns about the Oregon federal prosecutor right before Thursday’s Senate vote—which Senate Republicans needed 50 votes in order for Bounds’ nomination to pass.

    Billionaire Paul Singer–one of Rubio’s top presidential funding sources–pours tremendous funds into those left-of-center priorities—including amnesty, open borders, the LGBT agenda, gun control, abortion, and racial preferences.

    As Democrat-aligned interest groups are putting out action alerts and fundraising letters, energized by Thursday’s defeat of a conservative court pick, Rubio and Scott handed the leftists a win at the expense of conservatives and the Republican Party.

      Seems the President always showers folks with complimentary remarks prior to correctly assessing them, and then acting in a way they deserve due to their traitorous actions.

    Living in southern NH, I follow several TV stations Facebook pages across several states (not a lot of people in NH) including VT, ME, and Boston areas.

    I see many similar postings about PDJT, and they are always negative……….

    They all seem to be working together to instill a negative view.

    Wondering if anyone else sees this in their area of the country ?

      Oh yes. The left’s media has been coordinating and engineering “narrative” for a long time now, across all kinds of platforms. It truly is an organized, national/global propaganda effort.

      Ezra Klein, now of Vox, formally kicked it off with “JournoList” in 2007 when he was just a blogger (for which he was fired when it was publicly revealed). The left raised millions for him and created Vox, where he now spews his crap daily.

    • The media has whatever info there is about what’s on the tape because Cohen himself is leaking it, through his new attorney, Lanny Davis. Cohen thinks Team Trump should be paying his legal bills, because he perceives himself to be Mr. Trump’s once loyal soldier now needing protection.

      Unless it is discussions about a specific legal case or lawsuit, there’s no attorney-client privilege, and the tape can be used in court. The privilege does not extend to things like business consulting (or “fixing” either). Since NY is a “one party’s consent” state for recordings, it’s technically legal to secretly tape calls or meetings with clients. However, it’s not very ethical, and President Trump isn’t happy about this.

    Guilfoyle, a popular co-host of “The Five,” is in an increasingly serious relationship with President Donald Trump’s son, Don Jr., which raised questions about whether she could cover politics for the network without the appearance of bias. When asked if she will be on “The Five” on Friday night, Fox News confirmed she will not be back on the program to say goodbye and Katie Pavlich will be filling in this evening.

    The network would not comment on anything further regarding a potential full-time replacement.”
