    I am amazed at how some of the on the fence Republicans are now falling in line
    about Judge Kavanaugh. Flake, Collins, Murkowski, I wonder if President W. Bush statement
    last night standing by Judge Kavanaugh had anything to do with it. Could the Bush people
    be whispering in Republican’s ears to get it done. It just seem like suddenly they all have
    a backbone.

      One guess is these politicians get “snap polls”, and when they see 70% of the people aren’t buying the smear, they “adjust” their positions. I would not confuse that behavior with have a backbone. But, we’ll take it.

        I agree. The voters have not been fooled by this After the hearings accusation. The whole things stinks to high heavens. And now she won’t testify because somehow testifying under oath to the Senate does not get the truth to the Senate …. ??? Unless her testimony is untruthful, wouldn’t testifying get them the truth? So bogus and We all see through it!

    so, I like to put my money where my mouth is and contribute to candidates I like…in so doing, I end up on certain lists that are circulated in certain circles, thereby increasing the amount of mail I receive, sigh. That being said, today I received a request from a certain Mitt Romney who apparently is running for some office somewhere :o) In his request, he highlights his conservative bona fides and accomplishments, but makes no mention of our President anywhere. sheesh, where do these fellow “conservatives” get off? There is only one game in town at present and it is our VSG POTUS!

    Meanwhile, I think I hear Mitt’s campaign song in the background:

Trump, his policies and a candidate who could explain to believers why to get out the vote. It’s time for a fandango over the bodies of fainted Democrats!

      MySA, the newspaper, is not giving much coverage to this. I wonder why?

          I don;t know that Judge Kavanaugh should testify to anything
          if she doesn;t show up. They could use what he says then decide
          they want to testify and use what he says. No if she doesn;t testify
          he should not either , not say anything other than I didn;t do
          this. I agree about the empty chair though. They should all just sit
          there and say nothing like they are waiting for her..then when the
          time is up it is over.

        Yes, I think it will be worse for them if she doesn’t show. But I don’t think she will help them much if she does. She has already penned herself in on what she can say, and it isn’t very much.

        Maybe turn on the waterworks for sympathy. I’m still banking on Grassley pushing on through and confirming Kavanaugh.

        If she shows, she will not only be well rehearsed with an new and more detailed story to tell, All 10 democrats and their paid protestors will be well choreographed to either bail her out or disrupt Kavanaugh as he testifies and supporting Republican Senators. This will potentially make the hearing look like a cake walk.

        Grassley is going to have to show allot more backbone to keep the zoo under control.

      This is all a political ploy to get out the vote. Now they can tell thief base that Republicans are rapists.

      Their base doesn’t do logic or reason. They do emotions. They literally don’t even understand what jurisdiction is, and what crimes the FBI can or can not investigate.

      This is all just kabuki theatre to give the media ammo to convince the idiots to vote Dem.

    I can’t believe that CALPERS (the largest pension in the U.S.) in CA is seriously going to appoint an official with China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange (their foreign exchange regulator) to the most important position of Investment Chief. As an FYI “In 2016, Fortune described CALPERS as “one of its most influential institutional investors” in the US.” One wrong move whether by accident or on purpose could send the state, employees, retirees and companies invested into a tailspin:(((((

    I find this very scary and shocking:(

    What potential role, I thought the FBI said no investigation? Are they

        please don’t let that be true, the tweets are like it is a set up that could create an impeachable offense if the unredacted are given to the President and the President releases them setting up a national security safety breach by releasing ‘sources and methods’ –

        am praying that the agencies involved, DNI, FBI, DOJ obey and release as directed with no more games. Can someone post lilbirdie’s prayer, lost my copy of it. Thanks.

    • thedoc00 says:

      Sessions is not refusing to obey, he is not agreeing with the release. The president ordered the release and the DoJ as well as IC comments on the order. If Sessions delivers unredacted documents he has obeyed the president and then its up to the president to make the final decision as is the president’s right by law, after receiving recommendations.

      People making these statements need to be very careful and actually state the actual situation.

            Yes. The president by law is the originating authority related to classification and declassification of materials. That also includes being the original authority for naming (delegating) authority to other government and non-government employees to classify and declassify materials.

            In this case he ordered a declassification and by the process, the DOJ and IC reviews that order and makes a recommendation. In this case, it appears there is going to be allot of negative push back but in the end if the president says declassify and publish unredacted, that is what will happen.

            If congress does not like how the president acted, they can impeach using the negative reviews of the DOJ and IC as evidence supporting their charges. This is the risk president Trump runs if he declassifies and Democrats move to impeach.

              Really, they threaten to impeach with just about everything. So, I guess, when Democrats decide to give that a try, so be it. I think sources and methods, even i an extreme case, aren’t enough to overcome a coup though.

    Listening to Rush yesterday about the absolute psycho response to Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is 100% spot on. This is what all this crazy is really all about:

    RUSH ARCHIVE: What do you think the bull’s-eye really is here? What do you think has the Democrats so paranoid, so frightened, so agitated, so animated and motivated to stop this guy? What is it? (interruption) Well, yeah, but why? I know they don’t want him on the court. It’s one word. It begins with an A. This is all about abortion. It is about nothing else as far as the left is concerned. They want to be able to continue uninterrupted with their behavior when it comes to abortion. Sex without consequence, life without consequence. They are scared to death that a Republican or a conservative majority is going to overturn Roe vs. Wade.

    RUSH: But in addition to that (and this can’t be said enough) they really believe they’re gonna win the Senate, folks. They believe their polls. They don’t have the slightest idea what a potential backlash they are creating with their behavior here and what they’re doing to Kavanaugh. They haven’t the slightest idea. They have no idea of the rage! They think the Democrats have all the motivation and inspiration, eagerness to vote?

  25. Today’s $600 million 50-year deal allows arms dealer to ship Russian-made Club-K missiles to Delaware.

    Russians call it “The Doomsday Box”.

    The missile launchers fit into a standard railroad car or semi-truck.

    They are designed to be hidden in plain sight.

    Once in America, the missiles can be directed against American citizens and shipped to all 50 states.

    That observatory that was suddenly closed in New Mexico a few weeks back?

    “A federal search warrant reveals that Sunspot Solar Observatory was shut down as FBI agents conducted computer forensic searches for child pornography.

    The source of child pornography was traced to an IP address used at the observatory and a source within the building observed a computer with “not good” images on it, the warrant states.

    An investigation by the FBI revealed that a janitor is the main suspect in the search, however he has not been charged with a crime even though his name in on the warrant.”

    Just talking (writing) off the top of my head (it is flat!).

    Lewandowski had a purpose early—gone. Manafort had a purpose briefly—gone. Priebus had a purpose early—gone. Bannon had a purpose early—gone. Chris Christie, Rudy G., Tillerson—all gone (yes, now Rudy is back). Kellye Anne Conway still has a purpose—stays.

    Then we come to Jeff Sessions. How is this dufus still around? Recuses his AG job on day one essentially to Rod Rosenstein. Sessions hires a hick from Utah, Huber (rhymes with goober), to look into “things” (not Russian?).

    So we have a coup d’etat of a sitting President in progress, and the AG is chasing marijuana laws!!! We have evidence of crime and corruption oozing out of the pores of the FBI and DOJ buildings (and others!), and the President’s AG is sitting it out on the DL? It seems as though JS is in deep cover within his own department—and yet, PDJT leaves him in place hoping he will awake, rise and shine!

    The most important position in the administration at this point in the history of the Republic, and the President’s AG is MIA! Why is this weasel still there?

    Donald Trump has no problem losing (firing) people…except Jeff Sessions. Everybody says he needs to go yesterday (Hannity, Dobbs, et al)—and now even Lindsey Graham thinks Jeff should step aside!!

    Makes you want to say—hey, what’s the deal? Supposedly Sessions tried to resign earlier and the President reneged. Then yesterday, the President just stated—“I have no AG.” Seems everyone is calling for the POTUS to remove this worthless turncoat! Does Rod Rosenstein as DAG prevent Jeff’s removal?

    Unless….Sessions is in on the deal, a player in the Kabuki theatre. It is not like President Trump to leave an obvious blunder in place. I’ve been on both sides of the fence on this, and even stuck on top straddling. We will know after the mid-terms!
