    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) said Tuesday it is “reviewing” allegations that deputy chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) abused his ex-girlfriend.

    Spontaneous Selective Sexual Identity Privilege (SSSIP) means never being without a date. It’s the newest rage. A straight guy can be a lesbian and a lesbian can be a guy. weird.

      Sorry, but NO HE’S NOT!!
      I’m an earlier post, someone (sorry, going from memory and paraphrasing )
      was responding to Rudy fingering Brennan (or was it Clapper? Get them confused, as twaddle dumb and tweedle dumber,..the avowed Conmunist /islamicist one),..
      Anyway, this post was saying to heck with getting him, or even Obummer.

      What about the entity behind all this?
      THAT’S who needs to be ‘gotten’, and the poster was RIGHT!

      Gee, too bad our VSG- hasn’t figured that out!/

      READ the article on “nervous panda”,
      CHINA is sweating bullets, cause of what our VSG- is doing to them.

      And THEY are the ultimate man behind the curtain. These idiots in d.c.are mere quislings; collaborators. Even Koch bros and C of C, even Soros are but players doing CHINA’S bidding.

      CHINA is the water supply ($) keeping the swamp a swamp. It does NO good to dig drainage channels, if more water is gonna run in, as fast as you drain it out; you STILL have a swamp.

      And, it’s absolutely idiotic to wade into the swamp, and start killing gators.

      All the people crying for indictments now, simply refuse to understand this.

      Fortunately, our VSG- DOES!

      If your desire for vengence overwhelmed everything else, READ today’s article, detailing just how totally screwed China is, and take comfort.

      CHINA is the whole ball of wax. Everything else is secondary; strok, page, comey, brennan, even obummer and hildebeast are bit players.

      And, if you understand this, then you understand ‘the resistance’to “Trump”.

      We all know it’s not about rascism, etc.

      It’s because he represents an existential threat to CHINA. Take out China, all the quisling/collaborators lose. DON’T take out China, eventually they win, even if it’s waiting 8 years, and slimming back in.,…..IMHO

  9. rashomon says:

    In memory of Jenny “Task Force” Moore’s work to expose pedophia:

    “More than 300 Catholic priests across Pennsylvania sexually abused children over seven decades, protected by a hierarchy of church leaders who covered it up, according to a sweeping grand jury report released Tuesday.

    The investigation, the broadest inquiry into church sex abuse in U.S. history, identified 1,000 children who were victims, but reported that there probably are thousands more.

    “Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades,” the grand jury wrote in its report.”

    Can we now begin to take this evil seriously?

    For those who have their knickers in a wad over the dog comment…Don’t know how old you are, but some of us older, East Coast folks know that a ‘dog’ is either a poor performer (That new fabric design is a dog, it’s not selling) or deceitful as in ‘That low down, lying, two-faced dog bit the hand that fed her.’ Both of which are true in Omarossa’s case.

      I agee Sharon…
      I also think he’s foolish to even worry about this.
      The bi@$@ was taping people in the White House without their knowledge.
      As POTUS said, DoJ is looking into it.

      The same progs/commies worrying about this ‘word’ could care less about Ellison beating up women, antifa attacking police, not to mention opposition, children being trained to shoot school children, 60% of black babies being aborted…

      A little perspective is needed…

      Absolutely Sharon. I don’t know about other places, but here in the South, if somebody tells you they just got back from a 10 day cruise, or won 250.00$ on a scratch off, we say “You Dog” or “You lucky Dog”!! It can mean many things..what’s the big deal?

      I absolutely took it to mean “poor performer,” especially because that was the context of the tweet. He didn’t call her a dog out of nowhere. He was talking about how the situation didn’t work out. It’s ridiculous that people need English explained to them.

  12. Tonawanda says:

    Just my opinion: “charity” in America is mostly a scam unknown by well meaning givers.

    501(c)(3) is just sitting there, exploited by clever manipulators.

    gofundme (not necessarily “charitable” appeals) are often scams and “stealing” based on manipulation and crowd mentality.

    Virtue signaling is one of the most powerful forces in America, and it includes ALL points of view.

    We are a colored ribbon society, left or non-left.

    The puppies and kittens are scams.

    The swollen bellies are scams.

    The cleft lips are scams.

    Often these scams are simply the left fooling the non-left into funding the left.

    And often these scams are just very sophisticated people taking advantage of the laws, and of well-meaning people.

    By scam I do not mean (necessarily) breaking the law.

    I mean (in many cases) taking advantage.

      The coast might be ultra liberal, but the Middletown/ north of CT is Republican, and Polish. I’d like to believe that the challenger has a chance this fall. It wasn’t so long ago that CT had a R governor, before the GOP screwed it up with corruption. The D running are state has chased out dozens of industrials, raised taxes on the backs of residentials, so a push back may be in order…

      Is this one of those BS settlements where the government/DOJ makes the company fund SJW crap?


    • Dontes says:

      Let’s see. The Bill Clinton Justice Department puts a gun to the head of banks to make them lend money on mortgages to people who can’t afford it. Then Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, also during the Clinton administration puts together “packages” of mortgages and sells them to unsuspecting investors. I think Jaime Gorelick was running one of these institutions (yes Frannie Mae) and pocketed millions of dollars by putting together this fraud. Then the Justice Department sues the unsuspecting “investors” when the whole thing blows up.
      Deep State corruption like this is what needs to be investigated and put people like Gorelick in jail for fraud. WTH

      She said she misplaced the thumb drive the video was on. Doesn’t sound like she has it to release.


      • Robert Smith says:

        I assume the son has it.


        • Guffman says:

          A. It’s a big assumption that the video even exists. Two people claim it does, but that doesn’t make it true. They say it shows her being dragged out of her bed by the feet by Ellison… who would’ve shot the video, her?

          B. If it does exist, it might also show Ellison’s girlfriend behaving like a lunatic. Right now we’re only going on her and her son’s word that the supposed tape is all bad for Ellison. Remember this all came out right before an election and as such, these days, this info must be appropriately questioned and verified.

          C. If the video does exist, people should rightfully celebrate that Ellison won his Primary tonight. He should be easily brought down in the very near future now (perhaps even without evidence of the video as the old police reports now surfacing may be enough)


          • Robert Smith says:

            Yeah, my first thought was who was shooting it? It’s a good data point for Democrats true feelings about some of these issues.


            • Deb says:

              Cameras are easily set up in a room. I’m assuming that if the tape exists, she shot it on purpose without him knowing to get some leverage on him so she could walk away without him hurting her or destroying her career. She’s a Dem activist, and he’s a powerful Dem.

              Her son was the one who first spoke out, he says she asked him not to.


    • Deb says:

      Her son is the one who brought the allegations forward.

      The ex girlfriend is an environmental activist. She may just cave for th sake of “the party.” Or the DOJ will find some dirt on her or her family to shut them up.

      This election is going to reveal just how Stalinist the Dems have become.

    I live in a county of less than 11,000 souls in the arrowhead region of northern Minnesota. When we went and voted today my husband asked if there had been a good turn-out and the response was “Yes!”

    It will be fun to learn how many people came out and voted during this primary — it will show President Trump’s supporters are not backing down where they can do the most good — at the polls!
