    POTUS Trump should have invited the other uninvitee to play golf with him. Sarah can play golf, right??

    “But President Trump was not in attendance. He was dis-invited by John McCain.
    As was Sarah Palin. So President Trump went golfing at his Virginia Trump National Resort.
    This outraged the Trump-haters. They wanted him to sit at home in the dark and reflect on his sins to the powerful.
    Instead President Trump was at his resort doing what he loved. This was too much for the left.”

      Haha! Is that what my kids would call ‘creepin’ and I’d call ‘photo-bombing’?

      No, seriously…. is that the correct use of those words? 🤔I’m so glad to hear he was actually taking time to play and hopefully relax.

      But, I imagine his mind was calculating and planning even if subconsciously. God bless you, Mr President.

        No that’s not ‘photo-bombing’ – that’s when your in the background of someone else’s picture and you stick your tongue out or make a face or something. ‘Creepin’ is like stalking someone…. I think. Not sure about that one, really.
        I think what POTUS was doing was enjoying the day and living his life. I applaud him for being himself. I’m sure there were others a the 9th funeral who probably wished they could go golfing too, but they couldn’t. So ha!

    Ok. Let’s follow the trail, and take your time ….

    Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important……

    From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

    A Grand Jury had been empanelled.

    Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

    Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

    Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

    Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

    Bet you can’t guess.

    None other than James Comey.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

    Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

    Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

    No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

    I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller.

    What do all four casting characters have in common?

    They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

    Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

    Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

    Let’s fast forward to 2009……

    James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

    Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

    The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.

    Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

    Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

    However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

    Ok, no big deal right?

    Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

    Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame?

    Yep, Robert Mueller.

    He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

    Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland?

    No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

    Guess what happened to the informant?

    The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

    How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

    Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

    ~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

    Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

    No other than, Lois Lerner.

    Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

    Let’s fast forward to 2015.

    Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

    He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

    He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

    Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

    Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

    Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer?

    No other than James Comey.

    Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

    Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

    Nope…. couldn’t find any crimes there.

    Can you guess what happened next?

    In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

    They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

    Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

    Can you see the pattern?

    It goes on and on, Rosensteinbecomes Asst. Attorney General,Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

    FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are….. this group and a few others did it.

    All the same players.

    All compromised and conflicted.

    All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

    All connected in one way or another to the Clinton’s.

    They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

    How many lives have these two destroyed?

    As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

    Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

    See the person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.


    Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.

    Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

    Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.

    Lawrence also represented:

    Robert Mueller three times;

    James Comey five times;

    Barack Obama 45 times;

    Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;

    Bill Clinton 40 times; and

    Hillary Clinton 17 times.

    Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

    You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the

    work history of this Barsoomian woman?

    Apparently someone does, because someone out there cares so much

    that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton

    representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999

    from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). Someone out there

    cares so much that the internet has been “purged” of all information

    pertaining to Barsoomian.

    Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative.

    Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of

    Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community.

    And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases

    representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is

    Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of


    This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by

    using another government organization to shield their activities.

    It’s a cover, so big deal right? I mean what does one more attorney

    with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?

    It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and

    aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of

    California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump,

    the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions

    recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the

    marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s

    never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and

    the Russians.

    Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?


    She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!

      This analysis, as wonderful as it sounds, is useless.

      Sinema did not have primary opposition. No need for Dems to turn out to vote either for her or against her. Ward and McSally (not even including Arpaio) had a nasty, strongly contested race that drew voters to the polls.

      The GOP turnout in the primary is encouraging regarding voter engagement but that is all. Does NOT tell us anything regarding Sinema’s ability to get out the Dem vote. That hasn’t been tested yet.

      BTW, this is campaign knowledge that ANY EXPERIENCED campaign consultant could tell you. I assume Schweikart is simply trying to encourage the GOP base. If he is trying to pass himself off as some GOTV expert, he still has room to learn.

      In my opinion.

        Well there was a spirited race for the Az Dem Governor Primary which will factor into D turnout. Big issue going into the Primary was the Teacher Strike from last May and an insane Tax Proposition that thankfully just got pulled off the November ballot on a legal technicality.

        Sinema did have an opposition candidate running against her. Not well funded but was a Muslim: Deedra Abboud.

        IMO, there was plenty of “incentive” for D turnout and Larry’s analysis is GOOD NEWS.

AG Sessions is a member of POTUS’ Cabinet, and deserves the respect of the position. You don’t like him fine, but you infer weakness or helplessness in our President when you trash one of his team.

          You don’t have a good bead on Jeff Sessions and the player that he has been.

          As soon as the basis for Sessions’ “recusal” became exposed by good evidence as a fraudulent manufactured and contrived “appearance of conflict” then an unrecusal should have occurred and a zealous prosecution of those conspiring in that same FRAUD should have proceeded, because it is that FRAUD that is an obstruction of justice that Sessions has an official duty to STOP. Bad faith and fraud are universal legal exceptions to ALL procedural and ethical rules and LAWS as well.

          Sessions is derelict and incompetent because he doesn’t have the BALLS for the job.

      Things like this actually throw me off. Usually when Trump is upset with someone and plans future negative action he has two ways to react.

      One is to say nothing. The other is to say something like “we’ll see what happens”.
