    When muslims say that their goal is to overthrow our government and turn this into an Islamic-controlled country…
    We should believe them.

    We should also deport them.

    They openly reject our laws…because our laws are not Sharia laws.
    They are forbidden to swear allegiance to a country which is not under Islamic rule.
    Their ‘religion’ calls for the murder of all “unbelievers”.

    So how can they ever be good citizens?

        Thanks, Wheatie, I absolutely agree that we should believe them when they explicitly state their goals and intentions and adopt appropriate policies in response.

        Imagine if the Secret Service treated threat against POTUS like the Left treat muslim statements of intent?

        You should continue to highlight every instance of this that you come across.

        Have you seen the David Horowitz you tube clip where he got a muslim student to admit that she agreed with the policy of supporting Jewish migration to Israel, since this will make it easier to wipe them all out since they will all be in Israel? It shocked me to the core, and she was proud to proclaim this publicly.

              They loathe themselves.

              But they need to find a scapegoat. First, the West. Then, other M-sects / SJW-factions. Then, those in their own sect / faction with whom they disagree on some point or other. Then finally, when no one else is left, they’ll turn on themselves.

              When all is destroyed, there will be “peace”.

                Agreed, EmeraldStar, that is the source of this malaise. Self loathing, translating to misanthropy, a nihilism that taken to the ultimate extreme loathes existence/ being itself. Pretty much what you said, you “get” it.

                  I understand your point.

                  My post indicated that they won’t admit this (to themselves) until the very end – so in this respect, they act in a way opposite to it (self-love / narcissism) until that suicidal point. However, that’s THEIR problem – not ours.

                  Bottom line, diagnosing the problem only helps us to somewhat understand their misery – NOT to try to cure it, nor to excuse it. It’s pathological / no-cure / no excuse.

                  So, for all intents and purposes, it’s “game-on”. I’m unwilling to give them leeway, because that leeway will destroy us all. It matters not whether I, or you, or anyone else has insight into the problem – the FACT is that it’s a problem we cannot solve by talking or “negotiating”. The damage to them is done, and cannot be reversed.

                  I agree with you, in that they present as the opposite of self-loathing. Yours is the practical position – which we ALL must follow. Mine is the theoretical position – so that we may know a bit about WHY they are the way they are. To my mind, it solidifies our view on what to do.

                  Fight them, fight them, FIGHT THEM! They would destroy us! (That they would destroy themselves as well is immaterial.)

                  I believe that VSGPDJT is using their insanity against them, so as to weaken their numbers, and to prime them for defeat – at minimum of effort on our part.

                  “Oft evil will shall evil mar”. (Another Tolkien quote!)

            The real issue is not that “they don’t try to hide it”, why should they think they need to hide anything? The REAL issue is that we don’t even TRY to stop it. We fund it.

            I am no longer surprised or focused on these people and their behavior. It is just one “bombshell” after another that we are “outraged” over. What’s the point? My outrage is directed at those who have the power and the DUTY to stop it. They do NOTHING. Not even a brake check. Europe light. Give it another decade here.

      Very well said, wheatietoo. We are in a world of hurt even though our Islamic-craving media don’t tell us. In fact, they hide every bit of negativity such as this person’s speech in Chicago because they must keep it ‘secret’. The plan is a bloodless take over, and they are executing it well. Sure, they launch small attacks here and there, destroying a few lives at a time but it’s the silent coup effort that plays into their hands.

      Just last week an Islamic terrorist training camp was discovered on the Colorado-New Mexico border. If the perps had been white supremacists, we would have heard about it non-stop, yesterday’s Sunday talk shows would have been scaring the pants off Americans saying neo-Nazi’s are taking over our kids instead of more haranguing about what a great patriot Muslim convert and communist supporter John Brennan is. At least one child died within the squalor of that camp, in fact, authorities believe he may have been sacrificed in some depraved ritual. Other children were found malnourished, deprived off life’s necessities but taught hatred and death to other American children in schools. Where are you, David Hogg? Isn’t this story made to order for you and your pals?

      There is a website called The Clarion Project that follows Islamic encroachment here and around the world that should be making news but because of the service it provides in sharing information, who knows how much longer it will be allowed. This is our historical moment of standing by and watching censorship of speech slowing becoming the norm.

      The silencing of free speech that the Democrat party is pushing from every angle ought to have Americans up in arms and be the lead story on every news broadcast. But, it’s not. The media also must silence opposing voices. Social media must determine what speech aids the take-over. Far lefties on college campuses do their part by attacking opposition and running them off taxpayer funded school property. The right to peaceful assembly in attending a Trump rally must not be tolerated. A baker in Longmont, CO, that won a SCOTUS case regarding hits ability to decide what products he does and does not sell is now under attack again by intolerant transgenders. To these radicals, no court ruling stands unless it’s in their favor. No Republican winning an election is legitimate and the outcome must be overthrown. The old Democrat standby, “We just discovered boxes of uncounted ballots under a stack of papers in a bathroom, and oh look, our guy won after all” happens after every close election and they keep getting away with it. Nothing stands unless they condone it and it advances the Fundamental Transformation of America.

      CNN just filed a lawsuit because they wanted the names and addresses of the jurors in Manafort’s trial. What other purpose would they need that info except to publicize it so Obama’s street thugs could show up and either destroy their homes and property as a warning or simply harass and frighten them into submission–making sure the verdict gives Manafort that 300+ years in prison that Bob Mueller so desperately craves.

      The attacks are from all sides, all creeds, religions, races and ideologies. Whether it’s Islamic terror or a news outlet that is, in fact, an enemy of the people otherwise they wouldn’t want info that could put innocent people in harm’s way, the end game is the same. End the Constitution. End the Office of the Presidency. No borders. No laws — except those they dictate with iron fists thrust into the air.

The comfortable local political parties who go along to get along. The county officials who don’t answer to the people and go into closed door sessions at the drop of a hat.

        Come on! We all know what this is going to take–our active participation. We need to get in the thick of things in our own towns.

        We’ve all studied our VSG and his tactics. Let’s go and do likewise.

          Start now for the gathering info part. Attend meetings, take it all in.
          Do so quietly. Watch online here, read indictments being made,
          persons arrested in the background. Look closest at anything that
          involves federal funds. Is there some blatant skimming/ scamming
          going on? I’d be willing to bet that you’ll find some of this going on.

          That’s where the big money is, and there’s been no accounting for
          it. Corrupt mayors, comissioners, school board officials, housing
          authority officials know this. And they know that in the past they
          can take X amount of money off the top, while people look the
          other way. If we make it unscathed through the mid year elections,
          this will start changing. Trump seems good at picking people to
          cover bases on drying up slush fund dollars. I think that state,
          county, and city levels will start being accounted for. I’m praying
          that some of the money being saved elsewhere will be put into
          hiring a batallion of inspector generals. HUD, department of
          agriculture (free meals), highway funds…..

          See who the worst of the local politicians surround themselves
          with. Read the resumes, do some digging on their new hires.
          It will help you out the worst of the worst, the most corrupt. If
          the new hires resumes read like a rap sheet, it’s a dead give
          away. Know which areas are renowned for crooked politics.
          If people are being hired from those areas continually, it’s
          because their bosses are crooks. Crooks like to have crooks
          under them, because they can hold their past deeds over their
          heads if they get out of line.

          Just some observations from someone who was in the thick
          of it back when. Dropped out because it was no longer safe.
          If Trump really wants America to reach it’s full potential the
          corrupt local ward heelers need to be the next to be brought
          down. I think there’s a good chance that it will happen. If I
          see measures being done towards that, I’m all in this time.

              Also, there are American Christian organizations who accept federal funds in the name of giving aid to refugees. Most of them are religious in name only. There’s a lot of money to be made in helping immigrants/refugees. Sundance did a report on how these organizations profit from trafficking people at our southern border. I don’t want my tax dollars going toward ANY religious group for anything and I certainly don’t want my money going to sponsor illegals. Charity begins at home and our government has no business deciding it for us. As a whole, there is something stinky about all the non-profits, NGOs, and foundations that operate to collect federal funds in the name of charity. It’s another part of the Swamp that needs reform.

              All of the above have some unbelievable theft going on.

              If you know you’re area well, it’s easier to trace. Your lab
              tests will be before and after free meal figures on an area
              that used to be “fine”, and no longer is. You have to take
              some variables out when you do your research. If much
              building has occurred in a given area consider looking at
              another area. The exception to this will be if most of the
              building has been in multifamily construction. Doesn’t
              matter if some of it was condo. Multifamily can go sour
              in record time no matter what area it’s placed in. YTG
              considers overbuilding of multifamily as mining the harbor.

              Remove any areas where school attendance boundaries
              have been changed, because you don’t get a true before/
              after picture.

              On a non federal corruption level: have any schools or
              government facilities been built in areas that were heavily
              forested, and no longer are? Was there a stink raised that
              where the buildings were placed made no sense, or that
              they were destroying old growth forests? There’s a reason
              that this occurred. Some one is making money off some
              timber, and it’s not re appearing in the general fund afterwards.

              • Interesting. The Catholic Church is BIG into closing parishes and using sometimes prime real estate church properties to put low income housing or some other special type of housing on the property. Usually a church affiliated non-profit buys the property and then gets lots of taxpayer money to convert and manage the new development. The money stays in diocesan hands because the non-profit is organized under the church umbrella. Such a racket. They get lots more money than they would from parishioners.

                And yes, I am Catholic.

                  Find out what your city or county legal organ (newspaper) is.
                  It will have public notices, condemnations, foreclosure notices,
                  in it. Track the commercial foreclosures in your area. After you
                  get a tax assessment map it’s not that hard. We have 3 numbered
                  tax districts in my county. Knowing the first two numbers narrows
                  it down geographically.

                  Don’t discount another area because it’s not immediate to you.
                  There’s spill over then can occur, especially if school attendance
                  boundaries are changed to scoop up the extra poverty $$$.

                  The foreclosures I consider preview of coming attractions. Many
                  times once you notice what complexes or large tracts of land
                  have been foreclosed on then you’ll see the same property appear
                  in “Public notices”. Public notices will have notice of a “Bond hearing
                  for the finance or refinance of (name of property). No one attends
                  these meetings (other then YTG back in the day). If the notice states
                  something about “clean, safe housing for persons of low to moderate
                  means”, then it’s likely that the property is being refinanced under
                  Low Income Housing tax credits. If the property is being financed
                  with tax exempt bonds, then the tax write off is larger. It’s a tale
                  wagging the dog. Their buddies want tax breaks, they want their
                  buddy bearing bonds to get the business. Finally, if tax credit
                  approval is similar in Texas to here, the local politicians have to
                  sign off on it. Opportunities abound for pocket lining.

                  If you are very acquainted with school attendance boundaries,
                  pairing of elementaries, middle, and high schools, that’s useful.
                  You can see where damage has been done in the past, and
                  where future destruction is imminent. This is ALL the information
                  phase. If you have some like minded individuals it helps.

                  I didn’t. Still don’t. That’s why I share this stuff here. Fell into
                  it, wish I hadn’t. Believe in the long run it has a purpose, and
                  for whatever reason the man upstairs gave it as a homework
                  assignment. Good luck.

                  Glad to try to help. If you start doing some of this research,
                  see if you can slowly start sharing it with other interested persons.

                  My problem in attracting interest is that I tried to outline
                  the whole scenario with people, and they would go into shut down
                  mode. If you can break it up into digestible pieces, then edit it
                  down to the core occurences, I think you’ll have some success with
                  others. Once people are far enough along on how it works, it can’t be
                  unseen. I can still pick up a local paper and read about a new
                  development and instantly figure out if the people running the show
                  are helping their buddies get fat tax write offs. Knowing HUD speak
                  helps. “Workforce Housing”, “Low to moderate income housing”,
                  “Seniors housing”, or anything listing percentages ( x % of units are
                  set asides for persons below Y income level) are dead give aways
                  that the deal is being done with tax breaks for the owners or developers.

      That there are people and groups that have the intent to eradicate everyone unlike themselves is not surprising, they have been with us since the beginning.
      What is unexplained is why so many that are not members of these groups are aiding and abetting them. We know the NYT and CNN are not all muslims. Congress?, the ACLU? It can be argued that people like Soros, Bloomberg and Steyer would like to see total destruction as they can make big bucks off the cleanup but that doesn’t explain all these salaried people advocating for those who would kill them.

      PLEASE be extremely vigilant about what is being taught to your children at school. ISLAM/CAIR is starting to make real inroads in getting children to accept that Islam is just as good a belief system as Christianity; and, also, WORSE, as part of the “study lesson” on Islam, getting them to either recite or write, the SHAHADA (Muslim profession of faith).
      Remember that to either recite or write the SHAHADA will AUTOMATICALLY convert a person to Islam—for life. PERIOD. This is the command of the Koran.

        I taught 9th grade World Geography and Cultures for several years in a public school. Our textbook unit on Islam did cover the 5 pillars of Islam —which includes the Shahada. It’s a one sentence declaration which I won’t present here out of consideration for you. It has NO power. Everyone who has paid attention to events of the past 18 years has heard it. My opinion then (and now) was that my students were 3-4 years away from possibly joining the military or being drafted into fighting what were uncertain and ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I think it is important that high school kids know the basic components of Islam simply because it IS a worldwide threat with trillions of followers in many countries all over the world. I didn’t need to teach it as being a threat. The kids themselves brought up the negatives: “What about not allowing women to drive? What about terrorism/911? What about women having to cover their heads?” Any left-wing teacher (I wasn’t) who presents Islam by the textbook as just another peaceful religion will be met with some vocal opposition and questions in the classroom. It’s the nature of teenagers to question, to resist. High school kids aren’t converting to Islam in any large or significant numbers. It’s just NOT an attractive religion to young Americans whose adult lives haven’t even begun.

        Conversion IS happening in our prisons, though.

    FTA “Team Mueller may well have obtained information it will use to allege criminality. It’s likely that, during all of those hours spent questioning McGahn, Mueller’s team obtained nuggets with which, creatively, to spin out claims that Trump violated this or that law. I’m pretty sure that, at a minimum, they obtained politically embarrassing nuggets to include in their report. This brings me back to my first point. Trump and his lawyers should never have consented to McGahn’s interview with Mueller’s team. ”

    Have we underestimated Mueller’s ability to create a violation of a non existing law and the msm’s ability to hype it while totally ignoring real violations being exposed by President Trump’s declassification of FBI/DOJ criminality? I hope not but articles like these give me a case of the vapors! The cut off head of a poisonous snake can still bite and kill you! I need some reassurances this morning! Any thoughts? Thanks.

      From day one, President Trump should have proceeded on the basis that Robert Mueller doesn’t care about his guilt or innocence, and that the Deep State wanted one thing only: To get and remove Trump from office. The anti-Trump zealots in the print, cable and digital media along with the CIA, FBI and DOJ have caused irreperable damage to the country, and, have demonstrated that they have no intention of ever conceding political power when on the losing side in an election.

      Robert Mueller and his team want Trump indicted, which will have to wait until he leaves office, or impeached. It’s that simple. Anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves.

      1. President Trump believing himself to be free of criminality or bad behavior will not influence Mueller.

      2. President Trump actually being free of criminality or bad behavior also will not influence Mueller.

      Question: Will Mueller’s team be able to concoct some sort of criminal charge using the vast array of vague statutes covering obstruction or interference?
      Answer: Given all the information Trumps’ legal team handed over on a silver platter, how hard would it be?

      Here is what I think, barring any actual fact based evidence coming out of Mueller’s office:
      1. I agree with Dershowitz that since Trump as President has Constitutional authority to fire Executive Branch officials like Comey, firing Comey, even if the reason Trump did it is because of personal ire over the way the Russia investigation was going, does not constitute obstruction of justice.

      2. The basis for obstruction of justice has to be a specific intent to interfere with the investigation. Trump fired Comey not to interfere with the investigation, but because he believed Comey was mishandling it. At least that’s what all President Trump’s tweets and twitters seem to suggest.

      3. Firing Comey did not actually interfere with the Russia investigation. Do we have a single FBI agent assigned to the Russia investigation quoted as saying that the firing of Comey in any way interfered with their carrying out of their duties?

      4. I think moreover that obstruction of justice has to involve something more concrete, like giving false testimony to an investigator or actual concealment of evidence in a material way. There is no evidence that Trump did either. Since we now know the lead investigator on the Russia matter was Strzok, is there any proof that Trump lied to Strzok or gave Strzok false information with the intent of impairing Strzok’s investigation? I don’t think so.

      5. The manufactured “crime” will not be obstruction of justice, it will be a Martha Stewart redux 2.0; it’s a perjury trap. Comey says bananas are always yellow, Trump says not exactly, they are green when picked and are only yellow for a while until they turn brownish as they ripen. Mueller says Trump must be the “liar.”

    • Journalists no longer report what’s news, they report stories to play into their personal agenda.
      They want to sensationalize the limited information they are reporting. The original story I saw had a pregnant woman who’s husband was arrested on their way to the hospital to have a baby. How terrible that sounds.

      But between the C-section and wanted for murder and the fact they were illegally in the country, seems to me they feed a line of BS to all of us.
      What exactly was stopping her from going to the hospital? Were we not supposed to arrest someone wanted for murder?

      I am growing tired of all the nonsense. IF you are here illegally then get out. On your own or we will find you and do it. There is nothing more to be said about that.
      I paid for my kids to be delivered and went into debt paying bills from birth to college.
      I do not resent those that need help, but helping someone who is not legally here is just plain stupid.

      When basic common sense is ignored it opens the door to all kinds of problems. Just look at what we have done to 73 genders and a bathroom.
      Stop all funding for state and federal government that feeds into this insanity. If you are illegally here, there is no money for you.
      If you are illegally here, there should be no work for you. And like my grandparents, we speak english here, learn it or take your chances or bring someone to help you.

    In case Trump won, they would have a powerful entity, independent and most importantly OUTSIDE OF GOVERNMENT, filled with their people, who could fight and hopefully bring down the President.

          I still hold out hope that once all the plans and players (on the white hat side) are in place that Sessions will un-recuse and there will be an all-out action to put all the black hat players into the criminal justice system.

          I think that because they, Sessions and RR, still have their jobs and RR has continually said in testimony and in various speeches that the news is fake, what is going on is not what the msm is reporting.

    How did they know of each others presense? IIRC, Lynch was on a gov’t aircraft but it was probably an unmarked one and her name wouldn’t be on it or associated with it for ATC.
    Clinton was on a private plane which I’m pretty sure didn’t have his name on the side.

          The president has made it clear that he is not happy with Sessions and I would expect him to Fire Sessions as soon as he is able to do so safely. That means after Mueller has issued his report and after the Republican hold the house, if possible.

            PDJT can fire Sessions and Rosenstein and then Brian Benczkowski will be acting AG and will stay there as long as it takes the senate to confirm PDJT’s new choice.

            Benczkowski was only recently confirmed by 51-48 vote, so you know the swamp hates him. He refused to say he’d recuse himself from any russian matters. Manchin of WV voted for him

            Why PDJT is waiting to clean house is something he knows and we can only guess, but it isn’t like the DOJ will suddenly be run by mueller or deep state. Benczkowski will take over.

            Here’s a question, since Sessions is recused and has no bearing on the current SC investigation, can PT as the head of the executive branch reach out and ask to review all Sessions emails and texts going back to before the election?

            If sessions has nothing to fear then he should be absolutely OK with this and happy to show PT he has nothing to hide in this whole conspiracy crap.

            These words are almost exactly the things that RR has said in the past. Basically “if you only knew what I knew you would understand why I can say nothing at this time”.

            Now what on earth could they be speaking of other than the fact that investigation are ongoing into the leaks and/or the Witch Hunt.

            And even if the investigation started with the leaks ONLY, how does it not lead directly to the Witch Hunt?

            Leaks lead to Warner. Warner to Derispaska and Waldman. To Ohr. IG report speaks of multiple leaks. And so on.

            What happened end of last week?

            Warner panics and threatens some crazy legislation to stop PT cancelling peoples clearances, and Burr separates himself and for the FIRST time signals his support for PT.

            The LEAKS are the key here. This is the angle DOJ will take to roll up this thing.

            Patience is still needed, but methinks our AG and DAG are not as sleepy or crooked respectively as they may appear to be.

        Whether you believe in Sessions or not…PDJT has all the power and a sworn duty to implement Justice one way or another.

        One example of a hundred options; PDJT has the power to order the release of all FBI/DOJ documents with his signature (timing)…and he has many creative options to insure Justice happens (timing) (before midterms).

        It really does not make logical sense for Sessions to aid the criminals in not doing his sworn duty…he risks destroying himself…. what is his motive?

        Comey, Ohr, Strzok, Page, Brennen etc…had a motive…Hillary was 100% going to be President…and they sold the Constitution/Country for Money/Power/Greed/Evilness.

In fact, this is an opportunity for Sessions to be known as Attorney General who brought back the rule of law, worked with PDJT to save the Constitution and the United States which will be remembered throughout history. Attorney Generals or anyone in law enforcement, dreams about this one in a lifetime opportunity…

              Yes, I know it is over a year old but it’s good that he started working on the judges who have taken on so much more than they are allowed to do. He obviously started at the bottom and will hopefully work his way to the top.

              The job left to him by Holder and Lynch was a mammoth one and who are we to say he isn’t doing a great job.

      In my opinion he wants a “return to normalcy”. Some people may be fired but that’s it. “We can’t have this disruption, everybody calm down”. If this is his view, and I think it is, it is a very serious error. Not only does it damage or destroy his credibility, but that of the DOJ & FBI as well. And worse, it allows the greatest crime in US history to go unpunished.

      Hope is a virtue. Blind hope is not. My opinion is not based on wishful thinking. My opinion is based on all observable facts: his actions, inactions, and statements. If anyone disagrees, that’s fine, it doesn’t make me a “troll” or any of the other rhetoric tossed about by those who disagree with the opinion that there is a problem with Sessions.

    Now, why would Obama be anxious to do that on 19 Jan 2017 – the day before the inauguration – when he could have done it anytime from 8 Jan 2016, when El Chapo was captured?

    What does El Chapo know?

      Yes, guns from F&F were found at El Chapo’s compound including 50 cal sniper rifles. It’s been said El Chapo was a partner (asset) with some of our infamous gov agencies.
      F&F was actually a gun running op using cartels to move weapons through Mexico to ports where they were shipped to Obama admin’s jihadi friends for use in Syria, etc.

      Whistleblowers have also said military C130’s were fully loaded with weapons at bases in the US Southwest and flown to some of these ports (prob in Central Am) where the “cargo” was also shipped to the Middle East. This method continued well after F&F was exposed and may have gone on for years. It was said these shipments contained shipments our military didn’t want in the hand of cartels. Larger weapons like TOW missiles, plus equipment like NV googles, grenades, etc.

    The left wins again. Seems like a decent man. Darren Beattie

    What the hell is a white nationalist?

    A speechwriter for President Donald Trump who attended a conference frequented by white nationalists has left the White House.

    CNN’s KFile reached out to the White House last week about Darren Beattie, a policy aide and speechwriter, who was listed as speaking at the 2016 H.L. Mencken Club Conference.
    Beattie confirmed to CNN he spoke to the 2016 conference, saying his speech was not objectionable.

    “In 2016 I attended the Mencken conference in question and delivered a stand-alone, academic talk titled ‘The Intelligentsia and the Right.’ I said nothing objectionable and stand by my remarks completely,” he told CNN’s KFile in an email on Saturday. “It was the honor of my life to serve in the Trump Administration. I love President Trump, who is a fearless American hero, and continue to support him one hundred percent. I have no further comment.”

    Beattie gained prominence in 2016 when as a visiting instructor in Duke University’s political science department he signed on to a letter of academic scholars supporting Trump. He correctly predicted Trump would win the 2016 presidential election.

    As a professor, Beattie wrote an editorial for Duke’s student newspaper in support of the travel ban and has said he supported Trump’s candidacy from the beginning, citing his position on immigration.

      WrightorWrong, you are correct. Any time Sessions name is mentioned, our thread goes off the rails. It’s symptomatic of what we probably see as our biggest problem on the right.
      As I stated on the previous page, we’re all on the same side. We all want justice to return to the FBI/DOJ, our wall to be built, and our agenda enacted, and we are ALL impatient and frustrated.
      We feel burned by waiting and putting too much faith in the OIG report.
      We’ve heard nothing from Huber, and fear others are repeating the same mistake by putting too much faith in Huber.
      Sessions responses are not making sense to us.
      We all love our President, of course, but we’re going on two years of him complaining about his own DOJ. We think it makes PDJT look weak and the last thing we want is for PDJT to appear weak. We cannot see what is happening but we understand these issues are not supposed to be made public.
      In other words, we want to be part of the process, to help, or control the process, but we understand we cannot control these issues, and we are all a little pi$$ed. WE won this election. More than any other election in our lifetimes, we had a stake in this election. We owned it and worked almost as hard as PDJT to make it happen.
      So……..,
      We’re the little lion cubs, the newborn babes, of the Lion President, finally free of the shackles of establishment GOP and DNC. We need some red meat and someone in handcuffs would please us immensely. Most of all, as patriots, we know, viscerally, the duplicity of the FBI/DOJ cannot be ignored. We must restore confidence in our institutions.
      We all agree, right? Restoring confidence in our institutions, obtaining justice, is the primary goal, right?
      Well then, that might be what is taking so long.

      Anecdotal – It took me two years to get rid of black carpenter ants in my kitchen. I called the ‘experts’ in (DC swamp lawyers) and they advised to leave bait (planting a false story in the media to capture a leaker), and let the ants take it back to the nest…. it didn’t work (or we only outed a single person). I tried different things (firing the Reince never-trumpers), dozens of different home remedies (pulling security clearances). Finally, my contractor husband grew weary of my complaints, drilled the siding on the house, and poured poison in, from the outside wall (going nuclear – firing Sessions /Rosenstein/ Mueller). No more ants, but we had to literally tear the siding apart and replace it (big mess and extra expense).

      Ants/cockroaches/pests are a perfect metaphor for the Obama followers who seek to cause us harm. We’re going to have to try different things to expose them, with increasing consequences. We can understand President Trump not wanting to tear down the house if he does not have to. He’s walking a fine line.
      Let’s give the man some room and figure out a way to support HIM.

Congress on the other hand, despite repeated delays and obfuscation by DOJ, has completed investigation, determined that violations of law occurred, and referred persons to DOJ for prosecution. None of those people have been prosecuted.

          Even people whom Congress referred to the DOJ for lying to and obstructing Congress have not been prosecuted. The DOJ has nothing but contempt for Congress and is doing everything possible to sweep crimes under the carpet and run out the clock.

            Just what the heck do you think these referrals mean in our Constitutional Republic? Congress is the Legislative Branch. They are not the Executive Branch. The latter executes laws, including those laws guiding criminal justice. Nowhere in the Constitution was Congress granted executive or judicial powers with the sole exception for cases of impeachment. Any other attempt to use executive powers is unConstitutional and should make you squirm.

            Congress is made up of mostly liars, I mean lawyers. And they ache to put that diploma hanging over their plush office desk to use. Hence, referrals and other dog and pony shows. This referral carries no more weight than any other Sense of Congress or similar propaganda. Were you equally impressed by their votes for resolutions affirming that Obama, McCain and Romney ( IIRC ) were natural born citizens? These are meaningless things, yet for some reason you demand DoJ, the Department Of Justice act on them?

            I shouldn’t have to waste time explaining this, you can figure it out for yourself. But why not simply reverse scenarios and try them on for size. How would you like Pelosi and Reid to send referrals to AG Holder or Lynch to investigate the TEA Party, NRA, or specific named individuals like Stephen Miller, Don Jr. or Jared Kushner? Would you demand they act upon it?

            Furthermore, see my post on the previous page because you are describing political prosecutions which are outlawed by the Constitution ( see Amendment V immediately ). In fact it was such a big deal to break away from the corrupt Limey system that the Framers devoted five of the ten Amendments in the Bill Of Rights to ensuring that criminal justice is tightly controlled and restrained by the Fourth through Eighth Amendments.

            Do you want another Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch? Apparently many do. They keep demanding a putz like Giuliani be Attorney General who has much more in common with Lynch and Holder than with Trump ( Illegals, Amnesty, Sanctuary Cities Firearms, Free Trade, etc ). The problem is that with all the corruption of the past, many would not recognize a law and order, by-the-book Attorney General if it bit them in the ass. And the endless gaslighting from idiots like Greg Jarrett hasn’t helped. But that still doesn’t let you off the hook. You have your own brain, you only need to make the effort to use it and get past the bloviating from everybody.

    So I work in Jefferson County, CO (the county went for HRC in 2016- by voter fraud IMO) and often stop by a busy gas station to get a drink and snack. Last week, I bought a Twix. If you dont know, Twix has a marketing campaign labeling their candy bars either Right or Left. Last week, I noticed that people were digging out the Right bars and leaving the Left, including myself . Today, there were no Right bars and only Left bars remaining in the carton. Suffice to say, I did not buy a Twix if I had to go Left. I would love to know if others notice the same trend in their parts of the country. We can have an informal “Twix’s Gas Station Political Poll” going into the midterms.

      from what i’ve read, the US confiscated some missing “Russian” uranium, mueller was returning a small sample of that material to Russia so Russia could identify and confirm where the uranium was produced. In light of what we know about Mueller, this sounds like a cooked up story to obfuscate the criminality of his actions.

      Oh gee, another anti-Jeff Sessions tweet from our Beloved President! How many does that make in the last week? 3 Tweets about Jeff so far. All bashing him.

      Trump might quote other people bashing Jeff Sessions , but if Trump is tweeting in agreement with others, that counts as a bash to me. 🙂

      So do we have any pro-Jeff Sessions people still on this site? I hope you take the hint from President Trump and Sundance that Jeff is not taking out the TRASH in D.C.

        So Jack, in you rmind, you think the President doesn’t like the A.G. , but is afraid to fire him?

        Or do you think he’s too stupid to know he can fire him?

        Which is more likely, that the President will not fire an incompetent employee, or that the President will type a few words on twitter to make people like you look the way he wants you to?

          Are you a newbie here? If you are new, then understand this process has been playing out for over one year. The president has been disgusted with Jeff Sessions action/inactions.

          And the obvious question, why can’t Trump FIRE Jeff Sessions, he can do it , right?

          YES, the president can FIRE Jeff Sessions, but at what cost to him?

          The congress has told him, point Blank, if you FIRE Jeff Sessions people in the GOPe (Never-Trumpers) will impeach him along with 100 percent of the Dems! This has been discussed many times over the last year. So that is why Politically the president doesn’t do it.

          Also, when Comey was FIRED, even with the supportive letter from Sessions and Rosenstein … Comey attacked the president and claimed Obstruction, and that is what LEAD TO THE MUELLER PROBE!

          So if Trump FIRES Sessions, Jeff could complain and Mueller will ask him if he felt Trump was trying to hinder the investigation.

          So please, all you newbie’s , understand there is more to this that just FIRING Jeff Sessions. Now the president has hinted that he might have to step in and take action at some point. And so many of us on this site are trying to get agreement on how to FIRE Jeff Sessions, the best way and the best time.

          The DEEP STATE doesn’t want Jeff Sessions to be Fired and have Trump put a BULLDOG into the A.G. spot, to really clean up D.C. So they are on this site and others sites supporting Jeff , even going against what Trump is telling us. It’s complicated business.

          Trump is task oriented and he assigned a task to Jeff Sessions and Trump is upset that Jeff is not following the task assigned him. And that task is to DRAIN THE SWAMP! 😉

          If the President saw Jeff Sessions draining the Swamp he would be heaping praise on Jeff Sessions, like Trump lavishes praise on tons of people helping his administration. And Trump dumps on people that are hindering it. Simple, really!

            No problem with your opinion, but you’re saying some of us who believe in AG Sessions are “Deep State” because we post that we support him? You’re wrong on that. Period.

            The way I arrive at my opinion of Mr. Sessions is simply going back to what I know about the man, the facts, and something called First Principles, and with that, logic takes me to the conclusion that AG Sessions is doing what POTUS wants to do. He had to recuse, so perhaps Rosenstein is the issue.

            There’s no way I believe that POTUS is asking for Ohr’s firing today, not knowing that the guy is to testify next week. These are things his staff keeps him well abreast of.

            POTUS wants Ohr’s name front and center this week…

              The hurdle I cannot get over is Sessions recusal without respecting his boss or the office of the president enough to meet with Trump first. If anyone can present a rational argument for that level of insubordination, I would reconsider my opinions.

          I do not understand how so many think our President is all powerful and can fire at will. The Senate has to approve any replacement if Sessions is removed. Key members of the Senate have stated they will not approve anyone else. If Sessions was removed it would be called Obstruction x10 on how they scream about the Comey firing was obstruction. Mueller would have two mores years to investigate it. Also remember the Sessions was in the Senate for a long time. I think he is a Senate Swamp rat and his recuse was planned by the Senate rats.

          The Sting argument about Sessions being a good guy is a bit more realistic. It says PDT bashing Session to give Session cover if he starts prosecuting later. I do not buy that argument. Session’s Recuse was the big tell to me. It set up the whole special counsel. I believe PDT is frustrated with Sessions and saying what he means.

            Recusal from what? Russia collusion during the election. There was no collusion…which means there is no real recusal. Smoke and mirrors. When the time comes…there will be nothing for Sessions to un-recuse from.

            Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Yates, Ohr…you know the rest…will not be protected from Sessions because the only role Russia plays is as part of their evil FAKE plot. Has nothing to do with Russia except in their fantasies.

                Personally, I believe that we are truly at war against the enemy within. I have gone into a bit more detail in a comment further down.

                Do you think it is silly to think that a master plan exists? Really? I always refer people back to the Our Movement speech shortly before the election where PDJT clarifies what we are up against. Justice system? Damn right their is a master plan that starts with knowing the enemy and ends with an end game.

                The system we would normally use to do the job is broke…it is corrupted to the bone. Or, do you disagree?

                Of course, like everybody else…I am only speculating based on what I know and my own life experience.

Ohr’s days are numbered, he knows it, POTUS knows it, DOJ knows it, FBI knows it. POTUS pointing out the obvious…for a reason. In fact, he could direct DOJ/FBI to fire Ohr any day he pleases, even if they go the route of a in agency disciplinary charges and board review – which they did with Strozac.

              No problem. You make great insightful remarks. It’s frustrating to get caught up in the nonsense, but sometimes I have to respond to blatant silliness. IMO, POTUS was practically “playing” today with his pushing the name Ohr. The media spent the past several days pretending he was something akin to a mail clerk in the basement of the DOJ.

              Now his name is front and center for people to research. President Trump is simply prepping the audience. Oh, and the comment by Buck up above, about RR/Sessions can’t be fired because of the Senate – it doesn’t compute with anything POTUS has done. Neither does it compute that a man like Jeff Sessions would stay where he wasn’t wanted…

              You mentioned using life experiences and knowledge to base your opinions. Same here. I think about what I know logically about Sessions and POTUS, and go back to First Principles, and then reason everything from there.

The information coming out is meant to prepare the population at large for the revelations that many of us already know to be true. It was Seditious behavior by the Obama Justice and State Departments to undermine the opposing political party and then used to handcuff and destroy a duly elected President. President Trump has become even bolder on Twitter regarding many of the key Spygate players. Come out it will.

            Agreed. Judeo/Christian law is already grafted into our laws. A good reading of the OT would show them that. 12 people on a jury (that’s the number for government in the Bible), at least two witnesses for a guilty verdict, manslaughter…all biblical; and of course because God helped build America!
