    I’m sure this John James interview was posted by someone but it’s worth posting again. Please support this man! He will defeat Stabenow but we want it to be a resounding defeat! He has a great message and he’s honing it by the day! By October and November, there will be no doubt he will be the next Senator and that’s when the Left will go all out to destroy him! We have to stand up and behind this man! Who knows, he can be a presidential candidate down the line, but first, US Senate!

    To all concern trolls out there. Generic polls for midterms have tightened or tied. Rasmussen and IBD were 2 that got it right in ‘16. Plus, not even Labor Day when the likely voter screens run. Most voters dgaf right now. It’s summer!

      Consider that the Republicans also handed him a defeat when Ajit Pai’s reforms were over turned by a bipartisan effort in congress. This is going to take some thought. As much as I would like to see one of his thunder tweets and public statement, at this point he has no legal basis to act and he may be considering developing one before he speaks out.

      Also, given the Republican Party has gone ROAD (Retired on Active Duty), to borrow a military term, he is in overload mode as well because he has no help and lots of enemies.

      I’m a bit slow so let me see if I get this straight. For weeks now we have been hearing that the President wants to shut up the media and take away freedom of the press because he calls out their lies and distortions. Then the same press that is wailing about freedom of speech goes out and encourage/coerce/bully the twatter and the fakebook and the you tube and the linkdin to ban/remove content creators with whom they disagree and there is no problem with that? They applaud the silencing of Alex Jones with a straight face? Am I missing some nuance or sumthin here????

      One should not generalize the errant behavior of one county circuit judge to the entire state. Do you find me strange? I hope not… (though sometimes I wonder myself !)

    Dispatch from Michael Yon…

    Greetings,

    The recent acknowledgement that Senator Feinstein and others, such as Congressman Mike Honda, were and remain active participants in an anti-American/pro-China information war, bring sad vindication to our research team and to me.

    We have been warning about this since 2014. Naturally, our warnings brought much ridicule, but today bring a sense of saddening vindication.

    Please see…

      You have to ask, REALLY?

      Delete facebook, Twitter and any other such b.s.
      I am able to read DJT- tweets here.
      I have NO cable, no broadcast t.v.
      My only connection to i-net is my idiot ‘smart’ phone.

      For entertainment, we have an extensive library of movies and t.v. shows, MOST purchased at thrift stores, swap meets or hard sales. So, the libertard actors, etc. get NO $ from us, we CHOOSE what to watch, when to watch, NO commercials, and no ‘monitoring’ of my private info, except the phone.
      Just today’s news, or any day, really shows how absurd dismissing something as a ‘conspiracy theory’ is.

      I admit I have sarcastically dismissed several posts, myself, as ‘tin foil hat paranoia’, but after you see;
      Congressman/woman on Senate Intel committee selling secrets to our enemies, FBI conspiring to rig election, FBI ‘watching’ compound in N.Mexico, ‘global warming’ as China plan to con U.S. and west into diminished manufacturing,…And on and on, I am REALLY starting to wonder about,…beaming voices into head, or chem-trails,…I think I will be more,..circumspect about dismissing such talk/posts as ‘paranoid conspiracy theories’, going forward.
      So, once again, my view has changed, as a direct result of hanging on a branch, here at the treehouse.
      Apologies to any I may have ridiculed.

          Assuming it GETS to a jury. I’m betting, at least in the Ellis trial, Judge will, when State rests, issue directed verdict of Not guilty, due to failure of the State to meet its burden of proof.

          And yes, he does have full authority to do that. Beyond that, he has ALREADY, I believe, (in a previous case) ordered some of these same prosecutors to undergo ethics training, and it obviously didn’t do any good.

          Perhaps I’m dreaming, but I’m HOPING he forwards transcript to bar association, along with reccomendation for discipline (disbarrment, anyone?).

          And yes, it CAN happen. Look at B. Clinton’s law license.

          One of the high points of my ‘career’ as a jail house lawyer was hearing the judge say to the prosecutor “If you EVER bring a case like this before me again, I’ll have you before the bar association! Case dismissed!”
          Veins were standing out on the judges head, prosecutor was peeing his pants, and I was,…victorious!

            Dunno. Watching live reports from trial and they say the documentary evidence is going to convict regardless of Gates. I think the judge will send it to the jury. But, hope the judge does it or a juror nullifies it. We all know Manafort is a crook but at this point I don’t care. He is no more of a crook than the prosecutors. They are all crooks.

    https://saraacarter.com/is-rosenstein-staying-at-doj-longer-than-suspected/ However, according to a Wednesday WSJ article, when a Trump spokesman told the president the newspaper was looking for comment on his relationship with Rosenstein, he replied, “It’s fantastic…We have a great relationship. Make sure you tell them that.” According to the WSJ, Trump and Rosenstein now talk frequently:

    “The two men talk once or twice a week, and Mr. Trump calls Mr. Rosenstein on his cell phone to discuss such issues as immigration, according to one person familiar with the matter. Mr. Rosenstein consistently prepares the president’s team ahead of major news, officials said. And he visits the White House as often as three times a week, meeting with the president or White House chief of staff John Kelly. He also has a regular lunch with White House general counsel Don McGahn.”

    A DOJ spokeswoman told the newspaper that Rosenstein has a “productive working relationship” with the president.

          ANY ‘political appointee’ works ‘s the ‘pleasure of the President’, and, perhaps cause “the administration” is attacked from all directions, there is a need to ‘present a United front’.

        But, he didn’t and that ship has sailed.
        Impeachment is a TRIAL, and they would still have to convict. It would be in public, with 24/7 news coverage (cause how could it not?), and BAG has LOTS of stuff he could bring out, and they know it.

        So, other than crazy maxine, I don’t think anyone’s talking about the big I, except to stir up their respective bases.

        With the economic turnaround our VSG has accomplished, it would be political suicide to vote for impeachment now, and probably trigger a,..well a LOT of people to excercise their second amendment rights.
