        Ahhhhhhh that video is something….

        From the post. A play by play if you will:

        Abedin approaches Graham with a degree of panic As she moves in,
        Kelly is distracted by random guy forcing an interation (who is he, is this planned distraction)
        Mattis is distracted too but through a feint of scratching his head seizes the opportunity to look back at this highly unusual encounter.
        Abedin appears to be pleading with Graham ( the hand gestures look like and apology) and looks distraught as she leaves.
        She gives absolutely no notice to Kissinger. Any career politician that pushes past Henry Kissinger with out even an acknowledgement has zero future aspirations of a future political life.
        Old Henry looks at Kelly with the gentlest of WTF’s while Kelly keeps his steely eye on Graham.
        Graham looks as though he wishes this encounter never happened, or that no one noticed. He fumbles with his pockets and looks around to see who else noticed this encounter.
        Kelly keeps his gaze on Graham and when Graham makes eye contact Kelly goes to scratch his cheek. The movement could be easily misconstrued as Keyy touching his eye; I See You.
        Graham bides his time with great discomfort. He doesnt know what to do, then approaches Kelly wishing to whisper into his ear. Please General Kelly, please!!
        Did Abedin just seal Lyndsey Grahams fate with a viper’s kiss?

      The brunette in back of Graham is Kelly Ayotte, who used to be the 3rd musketeer to McCain and Graham. Huma shakes Ayotte’s hand but ignores Kissinger. The comments on Reddit are interesting (just click on the “Lol” title above the clip to get to them). Here’s the YT video…

    It’s looks like these same rats are accusing President Trump of doing everything they did during the 2008 election.

    “….McCain never thought that he had made a mistake. He clung to a failed policy out of conviction. During his last years he erupted with anger at old friends who questioned his judgment on matters such as the Muslim Brotherhood. His unswerving belief in the inherent virtue of the Establishment agenda has made him the saint and martyr of the moment.”

      • I’m with you wj2016 more than POTUS on this one. A very troubling tweet frankly. Alistair Crooke notes how the ‘Helsinki window’ has apparently been shut tight:

        “Putin dispatched the head of the Russian Security Council to a meeting with Bolton in Geneva on 23 August, to explore whether there was still any possibility for joint co-operation; and, if so, was such activity politically ‘viable’. But before even that bilateral meeting with a Russian envoy could be held, Bolton – speaking from Jerusalem (from what was billed as a ‘roll-back Iran’ brainstorming with PM Netanyahu) – warned that the United States would respond “very strongly” if forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were to use chemical weapons in the offensive to retake Idlib province (expected to commence early September), claiming that the US had intelligence of the intent to use such weapons in Idlib.”

        Then, in the wake of Bolton’s chemical weapons claims, and the pre-positioning of US guided-missile vessels close to Syria, Petrushev and Bolton met. The meeting was a disaster. Bolton insisted that Petrushev admit to Russian interference in the US elections. Petrushev refused. Trump said we have ‘secret’ evidence. Petrushev retorted if that were so, what was the purpose of demanding admission. Bolton said effectively: We sanction you anyway.

        Well… not surprisingly, the two were unable to agree on Iranian withdrawal from Syria (which Petrushev put on the table). Bolton not only said flatly ‘no’, but afterwards went public with the Russian initiative to talk possible Iran withdrawal – thus killing it, and killing the initiative as a gambit to leverage further diplomacy. Even the customary, bland, uninformative, final communiqué that is usual in such circumstances, could not be agreed.

        The message seems clear: any Helsinki understandings on Syria are dead. And the US is prepared it seems (they have actually moved assets into position) to strike Syria. Why? What is going on?”

    In my perfect world, Sessions is doing to the Deep State what the Dems did to President Trump, only actually by the book ….

    Awan gets off with a slap on the wrist, however he’s ordered to say in the U.S. for 3 months. Why?

    He was charged with bank fraud and gets off – President Trump tweets his frustration about it. Although fake news media reports suggest otherwise, there doesn’t seem to have been any real investigation into the whole Dem computer fiasco and Schultz. Once news broke, they would have clammed up. He gets off the hook for bank fraud … must stay in the U.S. for 3 months and thinks he’s free to talk – FISA warrant anyone? Fight fire with fire …. that’s my perfect world scenario.

            Sessions serves at the pleasure of POTUS. POTUS has his resignation letter, which can be activated at any time by POTUS. POTUS fired Rex Tillerson no problem. Session is done when POTUS says he is done.

            In the meanwhile, the status quo is working very well politically, and POTUS lives and dies in a political arena – do you not get this?

            In the meanwhile, the POTUS is the insurgent in the swamp and needs to use tactical nous in order to defeat them. Huber out of sight fits this picture – extremely well.

            I also concede my view is in the minority, and it is good that it is, because politically it serves POTUS for it to be that way – it serves to rile up voters to get them to drag as many people with them to vote R.

            This is my opinion and does not change the fact that I respect you as a treeper. I am new here, this was your tree long before I discovered this amazing site. I thoroughly enjoy the debate and the varied views on offer. Hope I’m not excessively offending anyone with my views?

        In-N-Out’s policy has always been to donate to make political donations based on what’s best for business. If they see a group, regardless of political affiliation, that is trying to help make the business climate better then they are open to considering a donation to them. That’s a reasonable approach for a business. While I wouldn’t take that approach, I have no problem if that’s what they choose to do. But the left sees any donations to things they don’t support as anti-left and they want to stop them.

      I dont consider secretly appointing Huber last year to prosecute the swamp to be doing nothing. Huber has a staff of over 450 compared to Muellers 15. He is able to coordinate with the iGs tasked with investigating wrong doing, something a SC couldnt do. As Turley said, Sessions was brilliant to appoint Huber who works outside of the Swamp rather than using a 2nd SC. Additionally, Sessions brought in Flynns protege, Ezra cohen Watnick to coordinate with him and the ODI on counter intelligence prosecutions. Those will likely be handled by military tribunals when the new rules kick in on January 15, 2019. In the meantime Trumps putting in place his judges. So far hes flipped 2 appellate courts and should soon have another white hat on the SCOTUS. Since it is ILLEGAL as well as strategically stupid to give the public, which includes our enemies, updates on whats going on until arrests are made, what more should he be doing?

    “………Guilty as charged, but McCain was guilty of far, far worse. Sorry, his death does not suddenly wipe his slate clean.
    Certainly, in this part of the world, we don’t have to pay our last respects at all. To McCain, we were just a bunch of people to be dismissed using the equivalent of the N-word for Asians.
    “I hate the gooks,” he once declared. “I will hate them as long as I live.”
    Well, he doesn’t have to any more.”’

        Reminds me of Genesis 19:1-5 where Lot has two Angels visit him and the townsfolk want to “get frisky” with them:

        19:1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

        2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

        3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

        4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

        5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

        And yet Antifa will say they don’t believe in God. Someday soon President Trump will declare them what they truly are … a terrorist organization. I’ll be watching his rallies to see if they start showing up. He’s not going to tolerate them for much longer.

        Waiting to see them protest a mosque or two over islam’s intolerance of gays — except for the tragic boy toys in afghanistan, of course.

    Here is an outstanding article on the funerals that (hopefully) presaged the establishment’s demise.

    A Funeral for a World that Never Existed
    Excerpt:

    “Trump’s style has been obstreperous and sometimes rowdy, and he eschews the air of regal noblesse oblige that some of his predecessors brought to the Oval Office. But the hatred he elicits from the Establishment has nothing to do with style, or indeed, with any of his shortcomings: Trump is hated because the American people elected him to bury the Establishment. Last weekend the Establishment obliged by conducting burial services for itself.”

      Here is another:

      A Tale of Two Funerals, and Two Waves

      As the fall elections approach, it’s clear that the Left side of the aisle is getting nuttier by the day. The public spectacles of the two funerals, Aretha Franklin’s and John McCain’s, brought forth the usual characters from our long-running American sitcom-cum-political soap opera, including a lecherous Bill Clinton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Louis Farrakhan in Detroit; and the leading lights of the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party, including George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Joe Lieberman, in Washington, almost all of whom seemed not to have the dearly departed on their minds, but their bete noire in the White House, Donald Trump. Old feuds, such as that between Bush and McCain, were forgotten as, like Marc Antony over the bleeding corpse of Julius Caesar, they delivered their orations designed not so much to praise McCain but to bury Trump.

      When even funerals are politicized — and let’s face it, McCain got the ball rolling on that score well before his death — then we have come to the end of Civility Road, for there is literally nothing sacred any more, even on the secular Left. But this is what happens when your entire world revolves around politics, and the politics of the moment are not going your way. When all you believe in is a quasi-religious ideology then you are going to be frequently frustrated when their Satan beats your God every few years. By investing every bit of psychic and emotional and misplaced spiritual energy into something as definitionally changeable as who occupies the White House, you are doomed to perpetual frustration.

    Well, if Comey and his band of merry thieves were able to thoroughly vet hundreds of thousands of Clinton documents in days, the Democrats should have been done with the Kavanaugh stuff many weeks ago.

      I’m sure CNN will misrepresent it as much as they can before it gets released.

      Does this mean this is a report impending? I think this is still hopeful thinking or just trying to push it towards a conclusion.

    Id sure love it if Sundance would put up a dedicated thread regarding the Kavanaugh confirmation from tomorrow until the final vote. There could be a running total of commitments for and against and a commitment that other discussions would not be permitted, including the ever-present bickering over Sessions.

    My September prayer, wish and hope anyway!
