      “… On April 26, Broward Sheriff Scott Israel received a vote of no confidence from his deputies in a vote of 534 to 94.

      At the time, Bell acknowledged the risk of going up against Sheriff Israel, and said the union’s “members have displayed great courage to come out and vote under threat of retaliation and reprisal from the sheriff,” the Sun-Sentinel reported.

      He said the union planned to present the results of the no confidence vote to Florida Governor Rick Scott and ask him to please “replace the sheriff with somebody who is capable of amazing leadership.”

      “Amazing leadership starts from the top, and there is no amazing leadership here. We are a ship out at sea with no power — adrift,” Bell told the Sun-Sentinel.

      Under Florida law, the governor has the power to suspend Sheriff Israel for “malfeasance, misfeasance, neglect of duty” and “may fill the office by appointment for the period of suspension,” CNN reported.

      Then it would be the responsibility of the Florida State Senate to decide what to do.”

      I’m skipping around in this vid, so maybe missing some important statewide issues. But so far, every place I stop and listen, they’re answering/debate stuff that has more to do with NYC than statewide stuff.

      If someone told me this was a debate for Mayor of NYC, I’d believe it.

      When I was a kid, there was a huge movement to separate NYC from NY State. Listening to this debate for GOVERNOR of NY STATE, makes it clear why that happened.

      NYC subway, Tappenzee Bridge,patroling NYC, etc etc etc.

      And the problem is : NY State as a whole, is a MESS. It needs attention!

    Well, all the Monkey Business was fun but on a serious note about the coup. Any prosecutor will tell you, they are not in the ‘investigation’ business. The worst thing a prosecutor can do is go out on their own with no LEO present and ‘investigate’. They become a witness at that point. This is a fact to consider. All these DOJ prosecutors and officials are witnesses. Including Sessions and Rosey and Muelley and his gang of leftist Hyenas. Due process was reversed when the DOJ feeds false evidence to the FBI in order for the FBI to come back to DOJ. A tragedy and a travesty of justice and the impartial trying of fact system. Brokeback Justice.

      So am I correct in assuming that the only fix to this mess is for the individual in charge of the Department of Justice, I.E. the Attorney General, to correct this situation as soon as possible or we will have more cases like Manafort?

      In that, to put it simply, lawyers do not investigate cases. Lawyers determine the extent of which the law was broken or not broken.

      Lawyers are not law “enforcement officials”. Only Law enforcement Officers investigate cases and provide the evidence to the lawyers. I.E. The Department of Justice.

      Therefore, Howie, as you stated, the DOJ feeding the FBI information is like a freaking kangaroo court, Bannana Republic, whatever you want to call it corrupting our justice system and should be stopped imediately.

      Bottom line is: It is getting worse every day. Lives and families are being ruined waiting for some supposed day when the hammer will fall all at once.

        Righto. LEOS investigate, not prosecutors. LEOS are witnesses in the criminal trial. If the prosecutor investigates then they are a witness. A prosecutor can accompany a LEO on an investigation but must be careful.

    Hillary Clinton warns China is ‘hacking’ US

    Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has accused China of hacking commercial and government institutions to steal sensitive information.

    Speaking at an event in New Hampshire on Saturday, Mrs Clinton – who is running for a second time to be the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate – warned that China “know[s] they’re in a competition, and they’re going to do everything to win it.”

    Mrs Clinton also urged caution over the rapid growth of China’s military.

      With all the mounting evidence of Hillary & the Dems Colluding with the Russians coupled with the new report out on the Chinese hacking Hillary’s email and knowing that Mueller won’t look anywhere but at PT and Sessions has recused himself of all work and Huber is looking like a do nothing clone of Sessions, my question to any of our legal experts is……

      With the evidence becoming overwhelming that crimes appear to have been committed by personnel in the DOJ and FBI and with PT over the executive branch, can he not just go appoint a Special Counsel on his own to look into these issues since his DOJ will not?

      If he is the boss, is there anything in the Constitution that keeps him from asking Joe DiGenova to be his Special Council to investigate what he sees as crimes?

    • As I have said before on this site, Huber is only investigating a few leaks. Nothing is being done!! Sessions does not see anything wrong with the great DOJ.

      To think otherwise, is wishful thinking. Many who post here believe otherwise because they cannot see how anyone who was given the opportunity Sessions has been given would not have cleaned up the corruption. I cannot explain it either, but I have seen for a long time that Sessions and Huber are doing little to nothing.

      There are ways to let people know in a general way what you are doing. Sessions has never promised to clean up corruption because he does not see any. People are not even being interviewed!!

      There is nothing going on behind the scenes!! The real collusion is being ignored by DOJ while president, family, and friends are being attacked over nothing.

      This is why Trump has been upset and rightly so. This is not a game he is playing with Sessions. Not only that, but he got terrible advice from republicans to name RR as deputy AG. This is so sad! Obama justice people are still running things.

        I don’t call people trolls, cause A) it’s counter productive, and B) there is NO way, in reading a post, that I can realistically discern the motivation of the poster, C) I promised myself and forum I wouldnt, and D) the other side can respond the same way.
        “YOUR a troll!” “No I’m not, YOUR the troll”,…doesn’t seen very productive.

        I LIKE to go for areas of agreement. If like to think we can agree this situation between DJT and Sessions is weird and unpresedented. And, since we aren’t ‘in the know’, everything we post is speculation.
        Those who KNOW, don’t speak, and THEREFORE those that speak, don’t know.

        I went from being a vocal Sessions supporter, to being 50/50, to being very sceptical that Sessions is white hat.
        But, with that I admit I don’t KNOW, And COULD well be wrong.
        I think of ALL posters, especially on this contentious issue, admitted they are posting opinions, rather than trying to say that there version is SO obviously correct. If it was that obvious, there would be no disagreement.
        Anyway, I don’t think Sessions is serving the President well, and he should go, after midterms, and along with Mueller and Rosie.
        If I am wrong about him, I will publically apologise, and eat crow, again.
        Just recognise, all posts are “IMHO”, and saying “IMHO, anyone who doesn’t agree with me is a f’ing idiot, and wrong!” Negates the whole spirit of “IMHO”, and serves no useful purpose?

        IMHO, Of coarse,…

      That is the biggest load of bull puckey out there. Antifa got its start in interwar Germany — Antifasichistsche Aktion.
      Even today, the majority of members are of European ethnicity.

      So…a guess it was always a bunch of American black people in whiteface, huh?
      And they all got ocean liner tickets back in the day and travelled over to Germany to start a group, or maybe they were time travelers from our time who also got some type of never before heard of race transplant surgery and then showed up in 1920s/30s Germany to start Antifa.
      Or maybe it was aliens.

      Nice try CNN: going for the twofer of “see those Trump people are racists!” along with “it’s really black folks that are the baddies, see! Antifa, it’s on them!”.

      It’s a good thing to expose the malfeasance and criminality of the deep state co-conspirators, but it is meaningless without significant judicial consequences. We have established numerous benchmarks for the occurrence of the “Big Ugly.” but have passed them all, citing along the way many rationalizations while maintaining strong expectations that “one day,” it will happen.

      The consensus appears to be that after the elections the fury of an enraged Lady Justice will crush the bad actors and the floundering ship of state will be righted. I’ll do my duty and vote, but my expectations for justice prevailing in the broad and deep DC swamp are muted.

        So here is another suggestion Mr. President.

        Since AG Sessions’s DOJ seems to refuse to look into the many alleged crimes committed within his own DOJ and FBI, may I suggest as the Chief Executive Officer of the Executive Branch, you appoint tomorrow Joe DiGenova as your Special Counsel reporting directly to you and a US District Attorney of your choice to look specifically into ALL matters on ALL people within the DOJ/FBI who may have committed crimes and ignored their duty and oath of office and of course any other matters he may uncover.

        My guess is that would also fix your problem with a certain AG and DAG pretty quickly.

        Great theory. I am reaching the conclusion that the deep state operatives, of whom she may be one, have been or will be shortly, fully outed as enemies of the Republic and they have decided to soldier on knowing that Justice either can’t or won’t reach them for a long time, perhaps long enough for them to survive untouched if they succeed and the President is removed.

        They are thriving and being protected by powerful forces in and outside the government. Presently, there is no threat to cause them serious concern other than the President’s Tweeting bluster. I am looking forward to serious, nation-saving actions commencing very soon after the elections. If, by then, it’s just more of the same, we’ll have to suffer more of the same.

      PT and Kanye,

      As we know many inner cities are struggling due to high crime, neglect and poor economic development. But as as avid golfer I’m sure you are aware of the very succesful East Lake story in Atlanta and how that one time depressed community was transformed. It’s an incredible story.

      To me this is the blueprint to help many inner city communities across this country and I would encourage you to gather key leaders who are passionate and determined to make a difference and create a team that can rally people and businesses to help bring about real change and a renewed spirit, one community at a time.

      Today there is one East Lake but with the right direction and leadership coming from you and the many groups you are already reaching out to, there could and should be 100 more East Lakes across this country.
