    Media writing fiction stories of the dems at work in Puerto Rico:

    Over the weekend, Puerto Rico welcomed more than 30 members of Congress — the largest congressional delegation to ever visit the island. The contingent of Democratic lawmakers set foot on Puerto Rican soil during a trying time for the U.S. territory, still grappling with a prolonged debt-crisis and recovering from two destructive storms.

    “It is more devastating than many of us realized. I’m glad that we came,” Rep. Tony Cárdenas, D-California, told CBS News. “The reason why we came is to touch, feel and smell and understand with our hearts and our minds what the heck is going on in Puerto Rico.”


    This is creepy senator menendez who went to Puerto Rico to “touch, feel and smell”

            Oh, dear. I’m afraid, esp with the c—- word appearing everywhere (don’t mean “cellulite,” either) that the desperate and rotten tricks of the femiinists are making conservative men (I know, Bee started it, but since then…) angry about/toward all women, except those they know personally. I’ve seen pics of unknown and known women with the most crude comments ever this past few months, and esp since the Ford debacle. Can’t say I blame ’em, but it’s too bad. One guy told me the crudeness only has the effect “you let it have on you,” but since it helps society degrade all the faster, that’s really not true.

            Doesn’t help when the obviously feminist APA puts out their stupid. biased report about the characteristics of “traditional masculinity” being toxic. Wish you ladies (using the word loosely) would knock it off. Some of us stand behind our men (all men) and hate to see the growing disgust each sex is having with the other recently.

        Yep. Mueller is the last, great hope of the resistance for impeachment of the President. He has had two years, unlimited resources, the protection of the Congress, and the support of the media in order to deliver the nasty goods on the President.

        He will not come up empty handed.

        While Mueller’s facts will be few and not sufficiently incriminating of the President to warrant impeachment, his cup of innuendo, presumption, supposition, and artfully worded but false links associating the President with violations of law that did not involve him will be sufficiently overflowing to enable the President’s enemies to make countless, false assumptions and subsequent accusations that will fly on eagles’ wings in the msm and Dem talking points.

        From the start, the objective has been to impeach the President. Failing that, it is to sufficiently cloud the balance of his term with allegations of impropriety and unfounded assertions of criminality in order to effectively obstruct the MAGA agenda and to weaken the President’s re-election bid.

        It’s coming.

        How the President responds is another discussion.

Wictor is considered by many to make excellent points and this one should give those who are waivering about POTUS the idea that we most certainly do not have a wimp for a president. Whatever your issue is regarding Mr. Wictor’s thought process is more of an issue.

    With so many Dems running for President, wouldn’t this be the same splitter strategy that the Rinos devised to nominate Jeb? Still think Hillary is pulling the strings. All she needs is 25% of the vote and she’s going to win the early primaries. And California is now an early primary. I think the plan is for a quick knockout so libs can vote in open primaries for the anti-Trump Rino. Hillbag blames Bernie for prolonging the Dem nomination fight into June, when the President was the presumptive nominee in early May. Another reason that she is not the rightful Queen of the United States in her evil mind.


    • covfefe999 says:

      Hillary doesn’t have as much money now as she used to and has fewer fans within her party, so I don’t know if she’s running the party like she did in 2015-2016. I don’t think she can run for President again, she looks awful and her health seems to be declining. And now she can’t play the woman card because of Warren and Gabbard.

      I predict that Clanton Foundation has rounded up enough money to again buy a lot of influence over DNC.

      I predict that they are setting up a splitter strategy. They have to get over the changes to superdelegates that they made as a concession to Bernie; the nomination will have to really roll in Hiraly’s favor from the beginning.

    A possible scenario re the Wall and Ginsburg:

    Trump declares a National Emergency on the border, and uses the military to build the wall.
    The Dems move forward with a lawsuit challenging the legality, and after judge-shopping get a liberal jurist to issue an injunction.
    The Trump administration takes it to the Supreme Court, but Ginsberg is still “working from Home.”
    Trump’s legal staff challenges her competency, and wants an independent third party to judge her condition.
    As a result, Ginsberg either recuses herself knowing she’s in no condition to participate, or is found out as medically unfit. Trump either gets his wall, or a new justice.

    • dallasdan says:

      And…Roberts refuses the third-party evaluation of her competency, and the Ninth Circuit’s upholding of the lower judge’s injunction stands with Roberts’s joining the liberals in a 5-4 SCOTUS vote.

      Or, Roberts approves the evaluation knowing her potential recusal can be effectively negated by his vote to deadlock the decision at 4-4, thereby upholding the injunction.

      Roberts chose to attack the President via Twitter, and he was made a fool as a result. He will never forget or forgive the President for his self-inflicted wound.

      I know, they are very cynical scenarios, but I have little reason to think rationality and due diligence can impede the deep state.

    Remembering Admiral Rogers:

    November 2015-April 2016 – The FBI and DOJ’s National Security Division (NSD) uses private contractors to access raw FISA information using “To” and “From” FISA-702(16) & “About” FISA-702(17) queries.

    March 2016 – NSA Director Rogers becomes aware of improper access to raw FISA data.

    September 26 2016 – DOJ’s NSD Head John Carlin files the Government’s proposed 2016 Section 702 certifications. Carlin has been aware of Rogers’ compliance review.

    September 27 2016 – Carlin announces he is resigning. Mary McCord will later assume his position.

    October 15, 2016 – Carlin formally leaves the NSD.

    Mid-October 2016 – DNI Clapper submits a recommendation to the White House that Director Rogers be removed from the NSA.

    https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/mark-penn-fbi-trump-russia-investigation-shows-deep-state-was-worse-than-we-thought On top of all of this, the Carter Page warrants flat-out state that the FBI had long before “concluded” the Trump campaign was working with the Russians.

    Somehow every clear security breach in the Clinton camp – like an aide’s classified mail on the laptop of a sex offender or huge payments and contributions from Russian-connected sources – was no big deal, while every fourth-hand contact with someone who could possibly be linked to Russia was evidence that Donald Trump was secretly serving as a Russian agent.

    How utterly ridiculous. I didn’t support Donald Trump, and there are lots of things he does I don’t support. But the idea that he was the Manchurian candidate working for the Russians when he ran on an America First platform is patently ridiculous

    Margaret Brennan of Deface the Nation interviewed Sec of State Mike Pompeo this morning.

    Brennan tried every gotcha question known to man on Sec Pompeo.
    Sec Pompeo never changed his tone, never raised his voice, and never cracked a smile. Sec Pompeo shut Brennan down on every single question, and turned several questions back on Brennan.

    Sec Pompeo did move his face when he laughed at Brennan toward the end, as Brennan asked one of the most ludicrous questions – although all the questions were ludicrous.

    As we see from the Dem primary announcements – the primary season has begun. It won’t be official for some months but it is unofficially here.

    I urge you to join your local GOP, to be part of the vetting process for delegates to the RNC convention, to be part of setting the rules for your state GOP primary elections, to part of vetting for primaries – local, state & for fed offices. All this starts at grassroots level. The support and fairness given in the primary for President Trump within the GOP structure is another reason to be involved.

    Start being involved now and attending meetings now so that in 12 months you will be part of the core group that makes decisions or at least be better informed because you have met people at local meetings.

    Remember that Sundance has said the GOPe ***Wants**** you to drop out of the GOP, wants you to be uninvolved. Then they win by default. They decide who runs in the primaries, the rules that will govern the primary delegates, the electors and if the GOP sent to DC will be MAGA or Uniparty.

    Don’t do it! Don’t surrender the GOP to the Uniparty! Stay in the trenches and make a difference – if for no other reason than to support President Trump and MAGA. With him as president we have a chance. If we make sure he is reelected and send to MAGA congress to DC, we have a chance to change this country for the better.

    Yes, the GOPe/RINOs/Globalist/Neo Cons are still party of this party. But we rose up and elected President Trump from within the party and we need to continue to rise up and support him from within the party. Cold anger gets ‘er done and doesn’t quit!

    From Sundance, “The GOPe will want to push Trump supporters out of the official Republican party. This is by design. This is why you are seeing such vitriolic statements being made about registered Republican primary voters by the leadership inside the GOPe that need to control the registered Republican primary voters.

    Don’t fall for their manipulations.
    So long as Donald Trump remains in the Republican Party, in order to support the insurgency, you too must remain registered inside the republican party. If you leave it, you won’t be able to support him.”

      Clarifies several points:

      -NYT article mistaken names on Manafort polling contacts (2 Ukrainians, not Russians).

      From the Article:
      “All of this highlights another inconvenient fact about Mueller’s case against Manafort: It is not about Russia, but about tax, bank, and lobbying violations stemming from his time in Ukraine. The Virginia judge who presided over Manafort’s first trial said the charges against him “manifestly don’t have anything to do with the [2016] campaign or with Russian collusion. The same could be argued about the entirety of Mueller’s indictments to date. Not a single Trump official has been accused of colluding with the Russian government or even of committing any crimes during the 2016 campaign. As The New York Times recently noted, “no public evidence has emerged showing that [Trump’s] campaign conspired with Russia.” The latest error-ridden hoopla generated by an inadvertent disclosure from Manafort’s attorneys does nothing to change that picture. If anything, it underscores that after two years there is still no strong case for Trump-Russia collusion—and that only shoddy evidentiary standards have misled its proponents into believing otherwise.”

      Senator Mark Warner might want to read this.

    John Brennan, and by association President Obama, were all connected long before the following in an effort to spy on President Trump and his campaign through GCHQ/5Eyes back door. The following started just as a cover-up operation for the 5Eyes.

    Now we know that communist sympathizer Nellie Ohr, and the men who surrounded her, her husband, business partners, John Brennan, and by association President Obama, were all connected. Together they attempted to prevent Candidate Trump from being elected and later to remove duly elected President Trump from office.
