    The State of New York too a left turn last night. I am not pleased.

    Democratic Insurgents Topple 6 New York Senate Incumbents

    The losses were not only a resounding upset for the members of the Independent Democratic Conference, who outspent their challengers several times over, but also a sign that the progressive fervor sweeping national politics had hobbled New York’s once-mighty Democratic machine, at least on a local level.

                I think we are mistaken when we say anyone went RED for Trump. Trump is a force of nature he is Republican by convenience. His appeal crossed party lines . He may be able to drag some RINOS with him in blue territory, but it will only be because Dem Voters in those areas understand what is at stake.

                The Left may win some regional battles for now where they feel there progressive agenda was not adequately supported. But the loony left will not be able to be a national party. In summary the Dems are doomed. They will be taken over in the primaries by their loudest voices. In Brooklyn they may win but watch for splinter strategies from the old guard of the Dem party.

                The party as their rank and file voters is ceasing to exist. No more moving to the center in Nov means no more wins. I do not favor ceding the Dems power in the blue states I do favor watching them destroy themselves. I remember Jimmy Carter.

            PDJT is forcing the left to drop their masks and any pretensions they tried to keep up. They have been teaching the younger generations that socialism is good and communism is bad for two decades. I know, I graduated with a teaching degree in the early 2000’s. Thankfully I had to take economics in high school and had decent history treachers, so I knew socialism and communism at best don’t work, at worst kill millions of people.

            But millions of young people have been miseducated. They have not been taught history, they have been taught leftist pro-Marxist propoganda and anti-American hate.

            This is especially true on the “coasts.” The liberal hell holes teach this nonsense starting in grade school through University. The PC culture prevents any dissent, or even debate. People are simply indoctrinated, then when the liberal economy destroys the middle class they move to Austin, Boulder, Philadelphia, Minneapolis. And they take their ideology with them and then stated purple.

            It’s an invasion, and the Dem leadership know exactly what they are doing.

            If you love America, teach the young people in your life about our history. Show then compassion. They have been emotionally abused and manipulated by the system, their educations stolen by left wing activists. Let them know that there is a life outside victimhood and hate, and that people outside the left are not monsters.

          Don’t forget that RINOs get elected by Repub voters who agree with them more so than they do the Dems. I believe that in many situations, the public backs a RINO because the Dem opponent is simply perceived to be a worse choice. It is not universal, passionate support of the President that drives Repub votes. Hence, the RINOs survive and thrive.

          The notion that the RINO problem is limited to the people seated in the Congress is analogous to not appreciating the importance of the unseen roots to a large tree.

          IMO, we here tend to allow our patriotic zeal to overestimate the degree of Repub grass-roots discontent with the Repub incumbents who don’t fully embrace the MAGA agenda. The President is doing his utmost to maintain control of both houses of Congress, and he knows that the RINOs are both important and distasteful elements of the winning formula.

        There are, but they are not the best candidates because the repub party here has basically given up in most areas of the state and just runs a candidate half heartedly in most districts.

        The majority of people are just mired in disinterested voting. They pick the Dems because that’s the norm and those are the names that they see on tv and recognize when and if they bother to vote. We haven’t had good repubs running in decades. Republican Congressman Collins was an exception and was elected from one of the few small conservative repub districts in western NY. Look what happened there and you can bet the Dems pushed that insider trading deal to the max. Not excusing Collins if he broke the rules, but he was targeted by the Dems as a seat to win easier than most because of this. The opposition candidate was a token dem candidate and he didn’t have a chance against Collins. Until that is, the stock scandal raised it’s head again. That wasn’t a new story by the way but was flashed again at this time. Gee, I wonder why.

        It’s ridiculous how NY is a land of dumb voters with so many smart, competent people living here. Sigh, it makes me sad and furious at the same time.

          I’m sure the President’s legal team is gearing up for epic battles in NY between 2018 and 2020. It’s certainly not going to be helpful as he campaigns for reelection, but that’s always been the Dem’s plan to slow him down. He’s used to it here.

          Republicans haven’t won a statewide race since 2002. The GOP nominated Keith Wofford, a partner at the law firm Ropes & Gray in the city and the first African-American Republican nominee for attorney general, in the general election Nov. 6. He’s a long-shot, to say the least.

          Meet the GOP candidate. His friends have nicknamed him “The Bro with the Fro.”

              Good questions all of them. As a relative newcomer to the state, I can say I’ve never seen anything like it.

              There are rural, conservative pockets remaining in the state where the GOP candidates generally run unopposed but they also are becoming rare. I feel safe for now.

              As far as down state and NYC, I think it’s a lost cause. Why the Trump family doesn’t simply pack up all of its businesses, jobs and taxes they pay and tell the city to go to hell amazes me. You’d think the state and city would be grateful for what that family has done for Manhattan and the city.

                As a life long resident, this is the norm and has been. The Dems have controlled this state and they still do. There have been smatters of repub successes–Patterson winning the Governorship–but they are huge exceptions. The cities have been run by Dems for decades. This turn to the hard left is going to be a blow too many imo. The state will begin to collapse under the financial weight of the union and entitlement crowd. Pure socialism is on deck here. Sad really for such a beautiful and bountiful state. Those few of us who are conservative try to fight and will continue to, but it’s like trying to swim out of a tsunami.

                  This election may very well be the last chance we have to turn the 
tide back against the ever increasing entitlement leftist state being 
forced upon us.

                  In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history 
professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the 
fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: “A democracy is 
always Temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent Form 
of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until The time that
voters discover that they can vote themselves generous Gifts from the 
public treasury. From that moment on, the majority Always vote for the 
candidates who promise the most benefits from The public treasury, with 
the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal 
policy, (which is) always followed by a Dictatorship.”

                  “The 
average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the Beginning of 
history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 Years, these nations
always progressed through the following sequence:

                  From bondage to spiritual faith; 
From spiritual faith to great courage; 
From courage to liberty; 
From liberty to abundance; 
From abundance to complacency; 
From complacency to apathy; 
From apathy to dependence; 
From dependence back into bondage.”

                True story from this year: The GOP held a caucus for Village mayor between two candidates (A and B). Candidate A won at the party caucus. Exactly two days later, candidate B went to the Democrat party caucus and got the nomination and ran as a Dem against Candidate B.

                Candidate B ended up being elected as mayor by four votes. So is the mayor a Dem or a Republican? This is a crazy state.

            For years Soros has targeted the offices of Secretary of State and Attorney General in all 50 states as those positions greatly affect the outcome of the local and general elections: who gets to register and how, the voting machines selected, the counting of ballots and when, the recount mechanism, etc. Citizens HAVE to get involved at the local and state level to seriously make a difference. SIgn up with your favored candidates to make phone calls, distribute literature, have meet-and-greets, whatever you can do to elevate the name recognition, issues and platform of your candidate.

        The extent of their work is waiting for that check to come in the mail every month.

        Sad to say I had a sister who spent her entire life on welfare. I actually offered her jobs and ways out many times but she refused.

        To see it in real life is real punch in the gut to the reality of many people.

        She would be so anxious every month, waiting for that check. Then once it came, just spend and spend on things she did not really need.

        Then after a few days, it would start again. She would just sit around doing nothing, worrying, waiting for that check……and believing everything the Democrats said……..

        Because all she wanted was that check.

        I have and do believe there are thousands upon thousands of people like that today in America.

        Look at the scene in the Clint Eastwood movie, where the female boxers mother got so angry at her for buying her a house. She said:

        “I’m can’t take this house, they will take away my welfare”

          I agree completely. The level of benefits makes life too comfortable.

          Some people are perfectly satisfied having cable TV, playing videos games, and buying stuff just to make them feel better. As long as they don’t have to work for that lifestyle some are happy. There’s also a group of people that work just long enough to get unemployment benefits – so they yo-yo back and forth between working jobs and being unemployed as standard procedure for them.

          Cut back benefits and introduce more stringent qualifications. We’ve done it before on the federal and state level. It is easy to slip back into providing more benefits though because, as you say, they own you obnce they get you on benefits.

              Yes, he did. But if I remember correctly, he said he was unhappy about it and will not sign another like it. His reason for signing was wanting to fund the rebuilding of the military–which is now occurring. That was of utmost importance to him at the time. We will see what happens with future spending bills.

            I have a long time nurse friend who became a social services worker doing home visits for welfare cases with small children. During the first orientation meeting the trainer told her that she would find expensive big screen tvs, stereo and gaming consoles, and racks of dvds, cds and video games that she could not afford to buy.

            She found all of this true on her first month doing home visits.
            The explanation for this is that, as Gunny said, when the check comes in the money is spent on wants, not needs.

            One case was a 18 year old high school dropout with a 2 yr. old child living with her boyfriend. After a year of working and going to school to get a GED she managed to save up $1500 to buy a car so she wouldn’t have to take city buses to work.

            Nurse friend asked her if her family was proud of all her hard work and saving the money.
            She flat out stated that she told no one that she had saved the money because they would all be on her to give them the money.

            Next visit nurse friend asked if she bought a car. The young lady said that she used the money to get the boyfriend’s car out of impound so she could use it to drive to work. As soon as she did this the boyfriend disappeared with car.

            The problem for those who want to break out of the welfare culture is that they become a target for others who choose to stay in the welfare culture.

            • Welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, etc. have functioned like this for many years – the requirements almost force you to quit working. Back in the early 90’s, as a single parent with no child support but a full-time job (w/insurance, which was critical for me to cover my daughter), I applied for food stamps. Because I “owned” (read: paying the bank) a vehicle that was less than 10 years old, I could not qualify. She told me sell the truck and I could then get food stamps, which is the height of stupidity. Duh – then I really WOULD have to go on full welfare since I wouldn’t be able to get to work. This is how it works, IMO intentionally.

          Gunny, truer words were never spoken. These mid terms are going to be a huge test to see if the PT supporters are as legit as we prayed for. We and everyone else who wants the changes we are experiencing under PT to continue, MUST, MUST get out and vote in the midterms even if it’s for a candidate you don’t particularly like as long as they keep the Dems out.

          We are the voters who should be desperate. Desperate to make sure we fight for what we started by electing PT. If he is handcuffed in Nov. we are all handcuffed. Who knows, if that happens, what PT might decide to do. Not run in 2020? That thought scares me more than anything. So I am desperate to do whatever I can even if here in NY it’s merely using my voice and vote to show my support. We have to make sure we are not stopped from MAGA.

Excellent VA hospital. Very good medical in general. The sales tax is high at 9.5% or so, but everything else mitigates that. With a lower cost of living, the wage rates are a bit lower, and the job market is not like larger cities (New York, Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Louisville, Chicago, etc.), and not much large industry, but this is a great area to live in. Larger cities that are not that far away are Asheville, Charlotte, and Knoxville. Nashville and Atlanta are 4-6 hours. Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Carolina beaches are 7-8 hours.

    If it is now blatantly clear to EVERYONE that this whole PT/Russian Collusion Is a frame job and it was the DOJ/FBI who propagated this smear job, then why does Sessions not immediately un-recuse himself and take control immediately??

    If he was snookered into recusing himself under false pretenses then surely at this point with all the evidence now showing that this was an inside hit job on PT, there would be no reason to stay out of this, if indeed he truly believes in the rule of law and doing the right thing. RIGHT? What am I missing?

    I get he has this supposedly incredible honor to always do the right thing when it comes to the law but doesn’t that same honor work both ways? If he was snookered then admit it and come forward now and do the right thing with regard to the law and these internal crimes against PT and the country.

    To me, the next 2-3 days is Sessions window to step up and regain the confidence of the people if and only if he stands up and says I’ve seen enough and I am un-recusing myself and taking over this investigation as the AG of this country.

            Also note that as is typical President Trump tasked people according to their strengths.

A recent article in Aviation Week & Space Technology regarding the DoD Missile Defense Agency described the completed tests where an F-35 with its Distributed Aperture Sensor System Acquired and tracked a ballistic missile, and sent the tracking data to the Navy Weapons Network. Whereupon Navy ships launched missiles and destroyed the target.

          In other words, if an enemy is planning to attack F-35 fighters, that enemy had better not be anywhere near Navy SM-3 or SM-6 systems, or Army Patriots. It sometimes does not matter how many missiles or cannon rounds an F-35 can itself carry.

          And the same article mentioned that the F-35 is of course the primary candidate for development of Directed Energy weapons, such as the Lasers being tested on Navy ships. The Air Force and Navy versions of the F-35 (A and C versions) do not have the Lift Fan of the STOVL Marine Corps version. This means that the Drive Shaft at the front of the engine can be used to power a dedicated electrical generator and Laser Weapon Turret.

          That drive shaft can deliver 29,000 Horsepower (not a typo) … which is the equivalent of more than TWENTY MEGAWATTS.

It’s a legit mystery right now why Trump hasn’t made a bigger deal of Kerry’s “shadow diplomacy,” especially since he’s forever looking for ways to attack Obama administration alums for their backbiting. (See, e.g., John Brennan.) If anyone was going to be stripped of his security clearance, you’d think it’d be Kerry, not Brennan, under the circumstances. As it is, with Fox News paying attention to this story, we’re probably destined to see a tweet soon demanding that Jeff Sessions indict Kerry under the Logan Act. For once, he’ll be on firm-ish ground. What will Sessions do?”

    At some point the conservatives are going to have to quit being sucked in by the “we don’t want to be accused of not being fair” syndrome that they’ve been suffering from for so long. The left has been using this to manipulate conservatives since I was a kid. Affirmative action, school sports, immigration, elections and more.
    The left says: “Isn’t it only fair to have the makeup of college graduates representative of the ethnic makeup of the country?” and the right says: “Well, I suppose”.
    The left says: “Isn’t it only fair for a black to be elected president for a change?” and the right says “Well, I guess so”.
    The last election was: “Isn’t it only fair for it to be a woman this time?” and they almost pulled it off.
    The left is not “fair”, they never have been and they never will be. Conservatives have to learn to play competitively.

      I suspect the Swamp is simply protecting itself, and fully superseding all potential state charges against Manafort, which might expose Swamp corruption. Manafort was only doing what all of the Swamp does… lying, profiting, cheating, etc. Kerry’s family, Biden’s family, the Clintons, Podestas et al are all doing this stuff. If Manafort goes down, they could be next for the chop, and they know it. The Swamp is in protective mode now that Trump has put down the coup.

      The Swamp has conspired to destroy Trump, and attempted to use Manafort as a tool to that end. The conspiracy seems to have failed, and now the Swamp has to protect itself from the blowback. If Manafort were to serve jail time, he is likely to sing, and you know he knows a lot. The Swamp likely is setting this all up so that Manafort will get a comprehensive Trump pardon, with no chance for any sequential state prosecutions, and least not for anything major. The Swamp will likely remove all of their investigative material from use in any other prosecution, either through legal or illegal means. I’d also expect the Swamp will find ways to reimburse Manafort for all of his expenses to date, as hush money, should he happen to mention that book publishers have been asking him to tell his story. Certain people would like certain stories not to be told, I’d guess. They’d pay for this.

    You might hear about the town of New Bern, NC, today.
    Here is why…

    The usual suspects in the Dem-Enemedia are salivating over the hopes that they can blame New Bern on our President.

    New Bern was hit inundated with flooding last night.
    Even though New Bern had been under a mandatory evacuation since Tuesday…some of the residents stayed put.

    Even though Hurricane Florence had weakened to a Cat 1 storm…the way that the storm came ashore, slung the storm surge into the shoreline from the Northeast part of the storm.

    New Bern is located on an inlet, on the banks of a River that flows out to the ocean.

    You can see it here in this rainfall forecast:


    .
    Storm surge pushed into the River inlet…and there was nowhere for the water to go, but out into the town.

    Storm surge + River = A lot of water, rather quickly.
    And the storm is moving slowly, so it is keeping the water from going back out.
    It just keeps pumping it…backing it up.

    I had been watching the storm-chaser tweets, since they often have the earliest footage of what is going on.
    And I noticed this:

    .
    This storm chaser had put a camera on the coast, 9 ft up from ground level:

    And by midnight, his New Bern Cam was under water:

          One call for a rescue was for a person who weighed 400 lbs.

          There were supposedly shelters set up and buses available to transport people.

          I guess you cannot *make* people evacuate, if they refuse to.

          I don’t agree at all with anything you just posted, NebraskaFilly. Feel free to not help anyone else that needs assistance as a result of their poor decisions. It’s a free country.

          Thankfully, our country is mostly comprised of people who think otherwise.

          I live in Houston and was here a year ago when Harvey hit. Though I personally did not lose any property or need rescue, I know many people who did. The Cajun Navy spent weeks 24/7 going up and down “streets” (that were rivers) saving an helping people.

          After the storm passed, I helped a friend demo his home, which took about 2-3 feet of water. Just getting to his home was a task– it took us a couple hours in waders and kayaks to get to his house. During those days, super friendly Cajun Navy volunteers and others would often give us a lift — think of it as a water taxi, back and forth each day.

          It was unbelievable how exhausted these folks were, yet how they continued to lend their time, boat and assistance day after day. Nearly makes me cry when I think of how these average Americans, even probably those that fall into the category of “deplorable”, just showed up when needed and went on their way when the task was completed.

          And not once did I hear any of these people ask if anyone they were helping were “stupid” or “idiots”. I am sure they still don’t question those in need today as they work to helping folks in NC. They are heroes. All of them.

          Here in Michigan we used to go through a yearly ritual where the US Coast Guard had to airlift ice fisherman off of the ice flows that break away from shore in the Spring EVERY YEAR. Many of them had even driven snowmobiles, 4 wheelers, and even cars on the ice. This, of course, always followed the warnings not to go on the ice because it was getting unstable. The people went anyway. They will just get a free helicopter ride if anything happens, right?

          Then a few years ago the Coasties got the bright idea that if this happens they would be fined. 2nd offense fined double. Vehicles sunk in the process would be fined on top of the recovery costs.80 to 90% of the problem went away.

          So, issue the evacuation, provide buses for those unable to drive out, and if needing a rescue you get fined.

They could go to shelters for free, just bring a pillow and blanket. You’ll be fed and provided water. You can’t get a better deal than that. I have a bunch of people in my home today because we’re out in the country on a lake and a hill, it was easier for them to come here than try and get out. We all support the Gov.

  26. Attorney General Sessions Delivers Remarks Announcing New Memo on Nationwide Injunctions

    Judges have been issuing an increasing number of orders that block the entire United States government from enforcing a law or policy. Not limited to the case or parties in front of them. Not limited to their judicial district. But everywhere.

    In the first 175 years of this Republic, not a single judge issued one of these orders. It’s not as though there weren’t legal controversies before 1963. There were many. But nobody issued a nationwide injunction. Since President Trump took office less than two years ago, he has been hit with 25 of these nationwide orders….snip…And so that’s why today I am announcing that I have issued litigation guidelines to assist our Department attorneys in fighting unconstitutional orders. We’re going to fight them all the way to the Supreme Court.

Therefore why doesn’t our side put together commercials inviting these people over to our side and show..perhaps in side by side video…where we have common ground with centrist (or liberal) Democrats.

    Show the hate, vs. the love, the true source of violence against differing views, and the violence inducing rhetoric of their leaders, contrasted with the love for and celebration of the American middle working class and the President’s actions on behalf of the persecuted around the world.

    I would go even farther. I would portray the undfounded and the later-proven-false accusations that have been employed bu the Democrats to ruin the lives and reputations of our candidates contrasted with the civility our side has exhibited and ask if this is how they want their government to run.

    • FGM here in the US – more victims being revealed. And no, do NOT even try to compare this to male circumcision, which confers true health benefits.

      “All three Illinois girls were about 7 years old at the time of the procedures ….. the doctors are using a religious defense. “Freedom of religion” – freedom to mutilate, murder, hate ….

      Genital mutilation victims break their silence: “This is demonic.”

      The indictment charges Dr. Jumana Nagarwala with Conspiracy to Travel with Intent to Engage in Illicit Sexual Conduct. She is accused of bringing people from the state of Minnesota to Michigan.”

      “THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS FOUND THREE MORE FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION VICTIMS WHO TRAVELED TO MICHIGAN FOR THE PROCEDURE — ALL OF THEM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GIRLS FROM ILLINOIS WHOM PROSECUTORS SAY WERE BROUGHT HERE BY THEIR MOTHERS FOR RELIGIOUS CUTTINGS.”

        The hypersexualized left, including the “media” in this country is so petrified of Muslims that they’re utterly silent about prepubescent females having their genitals sawed off. They are utterly furious and heroically vocal however, about heterosexual Christian bakers calmly stating they’d rather not make a sexually explicit design on a wedding cake because of their religious beliefs.

        Leftists are every bit as sick and evil as the genital mutilators.

    Here are some ponderings and conclusions that I have drawn over the last couple of weeks:

    1) If Joe D. actually KNOWS what he is talking about then: many people are going down, including RR, Comey, McCabe, Page, Strok, etc. If this is true, it makes a GREAT choice to NOT fire RR now but AFTER the alleged grand jury investigating all of this has something to report….that would be the SMARTEST thing to do, politically…only the political landscape should determine whether or not it is before or after the November elections;

    2) It would be RIDICULOUS to release any unredacted memos before Kavanaugh is confirmed. The media firestorm would cause dems and the Collins sisters (and maybe Corker and Flakey) to then require Kavanaugh to recuse himself from ANY decisions regarding the investigations IF it gets to the SCOTUS.

    My evidence for all of this:

    1) We are seeing new texts and reports of information that insiders have known for months, come out in drip-drip fashion. It appears to me that they are preparing the country for something that will shake people to the core.

    2) PDJT and his closest allies do NOT act like they are worried. They behave as if they KNOW that have the nuclear bomb in all of this but are waiting until it is politically best and to do it such a way that other goals of the MAGA movement are not hindered by their acting prematurely. This timing seems to be a moving target but IS being determined by 2018 elections, MAGA efforts and Kavanaugh confirmation.

    All we can do is PRAY, PRAY, PRAY and ACT, ACT, ACT to elect ANY GOP nominee that survives their primary. We do not only have a PDJT and administration that has all of the trump cards but also we are led by a VSGPDJT who has shown he has the business savvy, political advisors and gonads to defeat the forces working against him and US. He has gotten us this far, all evidence is there to support this approach and we just need to FOCUS on what we CAN do and turn out those (MSM, DEMS, GOPe, and TROLLS and those fair-weather, so-called allies until November 7th. That includes the eeyores, concern trolls and Ann Coulter like people that invade the Treehouse and conservative media to point out ANY negative aspect to PDJT and his admin.

    We just need to do this for 8 more weeks. If we cannot do this, then WE ARE THE PROBLEM as much as anyone.

        Blade says in response to “…he is however a swamp critter having served so long in Senate Sessions spent about 20 years in DC….”

        One of the main talking points from RedState and PoopScoop elitists was that Trump was corrupt from 50 years of dealing in the Manhattan cesspool. He was “mobbed up” because of the stranglehold they had on certain contractors ( in fact, that perception is the reason he could never get a Nevada gaming license and went to Atlantic City instead ). He had to “grease palms”. “Suck up” to politicians. You know the drill, guilt by association.

        So according to this lame theory of Sessions being corrupt, then Trump must be 2.5x as bad. But its ludicrous because Sessions is not swamp, period. He had plenty of chances to lay down with the enemy and didn’t. Particularly with Amnesty and the death of America, where he stood up to the tanks like the Chinaman in Tienanmen Square when it would have been so simple to sell us out.

        Ironically, Sessions usually got graded at like 75% Conservative by the Intelligentsia as opposed to their favorites like Cruz and Lee. This of course is because they bake in “Free Trade” and warmongering as benchmarks while striking points for “protectionism”, “isolationism” and other bought and paid for (R)epublicrat sacraments. Sessions happens to be almost perfectly aligned with Trump on all the key points, they diverge at the most liberal social issues and this is hardly a dealbreaker.

        On the biggest issue of all, the only one that matters since we are at the end of the line now: Illegal Aliens, Amnesty, Sanctuary Cities and Voter Fraud they are 100% simpatico. And I can only think of a handful who are in this group: Trump, Sessions, Lamm, Tancredo, Kobach, Steve King. If anyone outside of this bunch is not AG at this moment in our history then we are screwed. Anyone who does not understand this simple point by now is pretty much hopeless, as is the country, and our kids and grandkids will be paying the price if demographics are not addressed. This is our last chance. These fantasy football or apprentice games about this person or that person are getting silly since the country is literally at stake.

        *Both* Trump and Sessions must survive, it is not either or. Trump needs to appoint Supreme Court Justices, and Sessions must hack away at Illegals, Voting Fraud, Sanctuaries, and hopefully the Consent Decree. This is serious business and Trump has the right killer in the job to get it done.

      I am sorry to all the women out there, but there should be 5 year limit for “sexual misconduct allegations” against a man. After 5 years the allegations should be considered felony libel or slander even if true. The bottom line is that sexually assaulting a woman is a horrific act and should be punished as such with any credible allegation. Stale allegations should be punished as felonies against the woman. The bottom line is sexual assault can ruin a woman’s life. And false or stale allegations can destroy a man’s life In this case with Judge Kavanaugh (assuming their even is such a woman and its not made up) the woman should be found and prosecuted along with DiFi. They are engaged in libel and slander to destroy Judge Kavanaugh’s life. For every 5 years the allegations go back in time, the punishment should grow. These allegations are 35+ years old from high school. This policy would also encourage women who are victims of sexual assault to speak out, press charges at the time or within a reasonable time after an assault.

    “only the political landscape should determine whether or not it is before or after the November elections”

    The problem with this statement is that neither the President nor the recused AG get to tell the professional prosecutors handling all pending investigations subject to the grand jury secrecy rules and procedures when to time anything. Best case is that Huber and his team have been busy securing sealed indictments, using them to secure plea deals including agreements to resign that make available evidence to indict bigger fish, and the cases against those bigger fish – Clintons, Podestas, Brennan, Clapper, Lynch, Comey, Simpson, Steele, Halper, etc., will soon be airtight and ready to reveal. Meanwhile, IG Horowitz has been re-dotting every i and recrossing every t in his long overdue followup reports re Clinton investigations, Uranium One, etc. Meanwhile the national security apparatus, lawfully engaged to the extent that foreign entities like MI6, China, Deripaska, Russia have been shown to be colluding with those bigger fish in efforts to aid those foreign countries at US expense and/or to secure impeachment or other coup to topple President Trump have been compiling legally usable evidence thereof (via valid FISA warrants), and turning it over to Huber and his prosecutors.

    There’s no political guy calling the shots in this process to time everything for political impact. More likely, these prosecutors are motivated by statutes of limitations, balanced against ever-bigger fish to successfully net, rather than political impact. If you look back at the unveiling of evidence Deep State collusion – e.g., the limited releases of Page-Strzok texts, the Warner-Waldman texts, the Senate Intelligence Committee leak to the NYT reporter, the Ohr-Steele texts – these appear to have occurred in a timing that is not politically motivated, nor coordinated by the White House, but as grudgingly allowed by professional prosecutors only after they believe the specific release will help them make cases, and not a moment before. Number 17 may have insight into what they are doing by virtue of NSA’s extraordinary ability to eavesdrop – legally or illegally – on all digital communications, but his reliability as to timing has been zilch. Zilch with a capital Z, number 26.

      I am not totally disagreeing with you and you make valid points. When I was referring to the political repercussions, I was not just talking about how it would impact the November election. As you point out, the prosecutors control that time line and the President should respond accordingly.

      However, declassifying those documents is 100% in his control and this should be planned to not interfere with Kavanaugh, trade negotiations, etc. ALL that will be impacted due to the HYSTERIA of the MSM/Dems reaction to them. If he chooses to released them AFTER those things are accomplished but BEFORE the November elections, I would assume it is because PDJT has discerned that the elections may be developing a blueish tilt and that the indictments of the Deep State culprits will not come out in time before the election to save the GOP.

      Finally, if you are saying there is no one providing good political decision guidance, I STRONGLY disagree. PDJT has a better sense of this that ANYONE in our lifetimes. Had he listened to ANYONE but his own self, Hillary Clinton would be president today and he and his family would be in jail. Pure and simple.

    What election? Republicans have already handed Congress to the Democrats
    Daniel Horowitz · September 14, 2018
    We hear a lot of talk about Russians interfering with the 2016 election results, but really, Republicans did the job for them.

    What if I had told you during the 2016 elections that Republicans would pass a short-term budget bill funding the government and all its vices in a way that is absolutely indistinguishable from a bill Democrats would pass, merge it with a long-term bill funding the worst aspects of immigration, abortion, everything we hate about the Department of Education and Obamacare, massively increase spending, and then pair it with a bill funding the troops? What if I had told you we were about to lose the next election as severely as the 1974 “Watergate” election because Republicans were busy accomplishing the other side’s goals? The HHS-Labor-Education component appropriates $178 billion for fiscal year 2019, $10.7 billion more than Trump requested. HHS would receive a 2.6 percent increase over the current record levels I decried in the March bill for fiscal year 2018. The bill also contains $286 million for Title X abortion funding, as well as $100 million for Obama’s “teen pregnancy prevention program.” They also removed a provision from the House version allowing adoption agencies the discretion not to place children in homes without a father and mother.

    Rather than barring HHS from settling phony “unaccompanied” minors fueling the MS-13 and drug crisis, the bill requires HHS to “develop a strategy” for “reunifying” the invaders who self-separate from their kids to empower the drug cartels and endanger our country. We now have a Congress of, by, and for foreign invaders. It’s surreal. Out of 25 ideas that I proposed to protect Americans from the emergency of illegal immigration and all its cascading effects – from gangs and drugs to identity theft, crime, and the strain on schools – not a single conservative provision was put into the bill.

              If Kavanuagh was my friend, I would have started signature campaigns the day he was nominated—attesting to his character, fairness and qualifications for the job.
              I would not wait until he was smeared to do something, I would have done something in anticipation of it…

          My old high school Class of ’65 has had a discussion and news group online for years, we’ve planned online for several 10 and 5 year class reunion parties, and share life events and politics with each other. Go Tigers!

          If Judge Kavenaugh’s high school class has a similar system then this letter of support could easily be completed and presented in one day.

      that would be a Samantha Powers purchase, perhaps a quickie shopping binge after an afternoon’s unmasking session…

      Another parody tweet:
      From the desk of Nikki Haley
      Dear Samantha Powers,
      Your $52K curtains arrived. I suppose I have to keep them but they’re ugly, They look like Hillary’s tent dress.
      Sincerely,
      Nikki Haley
      US Ambassador to the UN
