        Ahhh…. the ol’ “Election Gone Bad” excuse. Heard that one before.


      • Cynic says:

        Allegedly, Seth Rich had evidence of how hrc switched votes that were for Bernie Sanders, and documented them to herself.

        According to an article by Rich’s girlfriend(?), Seth had discovered hrc set up alternate
        voting sites for voters on her own website.
        Then, the vote tallies at both places were collected by Dem. party members, and
        any vote for Sanders was replaced by a vote for hrc.

        This is the closest, most reasonable and logical explanation for Seth’s murder. According to the same article, Seth had been planning to dump all the evidence on WikiLeaks(?)
        the very next day.

        Americans must not forget the depths of evil hrc personifies. This fight is for the soul of
        our country, and we must stay dogged in the relentless exposure of this evil,
        and the determined pursuit of truth.


  6. This is old news to most of you but it made me chuckle. There is only one Donald Trump.

    The Leaks Go On.

    The Leaks Go On.

    ‘We’re NOT going back till it’s over! We’re going to build this wall!’ Trump doubles down on shutdown in private conference call demanding doubles down on shutdown in private conference call demanding Democrats cave on funding his border barrier

    Trump held conference call with ‘state, local, and community leaders’

    Pushed for his border wall and urged supporters to stand firm with him, while insisting that Republican lawmakers are not wavering

    Said four times that he’s ready for a long shutdown and won’t cave on funding

    Briefing call was expressly not meant for the press; a participant shared audio with DailyMali.com afterward.

    “President Donald Trump told hundreds of state, local and community ‘leaders’ on a conference call Tuesday – four separate times – that he is prepared to ride out a lengthy government shutdown and won’t reopen a long list of unfunded agencies until Congress appropriates money for his long-promised border wall.

    ‘We’re not going back until it’s over. We’re going to build this wall. It’s going to happen,’ the president said.

    ‘If we just stick together, we’re going to win. Because we’re not going back until it’s – until the Democrats do what they know they have to do,’ he urged later.

    The White House’s Office of Political Affairs organized the call Monday with invitations to the 2:30 p.m. Tuesday event, which lasted less than 14 minutes.

    It was promoted as a briefing ‘not intended for press purposes,’ and a call moderator declared at the beginning that it was ‘not on the record.’ DailyMail.com did not participate in or listen to the call in real-time. A registered participant provided audio afterward.”

      In the land of perpetual leaks, one has to always assume it will get leaked.

    • With so many people in the call, 45 surely knows it will be leaked out sooner than later.

      I sense the President has reached his flash point on the wall, and I am delighted. Moreover, I believe he is very confident he will win the battle for it.

      Prior to him reaching this stage of brinkmanship, he tried every conceivable negotiating tactic/strategy to succeed in making a deal with the Dems, but they absolutely refused to cooperate. They thought they could not lose, but the President is clear and authoritatively stating they are wrong; he will win.

      Hit them square in the jaw, Mr. President, and they will go down.

        After recoiling at the emergence of yet another leak, and to the smarmy Martoskos, I came to the same conclusion.

        President Trump seems supremely confident, not only about the shutdown but about Mueller, demonrats, ene-media, etc.

    Just watching the Barr hearing. A couple of things stand out:

    1) Democrats have already convicted Trump in their minds, lol, and
    2) Democrats care more about criminals than American citizens.

    This article is from several days ago, but is a really good read about misinformation by the media on the issues around Manafort (including selling polling data to Ukraine).


    The Manafort Revelation Is Not a Smoking Gun


    “In April 2018, Manafort’s attorneys told a Virginia judge that they have made “multiple discovery requests” seeking any contacts between Manafort and “Russian intelligence officials,” but that the special counsel informed them that “there are no materials responsive to [those] requests.”…….

    …….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 collusion probe, the DC judge in Manafort’s second trial concurred, was “wholly irrelevant” to these charges.”

    DACA recipient Hilario Yanez said on Fox News:

    “I came here when I was a year old. And my mom brought me here through no fault of my own. I couldn’t make my own decision. I grew up undocumented. I grew up homeless.”

    “It was my conservative values that made me who I am today, and as a result, I’m a first generation college graduate and I have an incredible job as well.”

    “Look, I agree with the president and I talk to hundreds and thousands of dreamers,” he continued. “I think we’re all in agreement that safety is, should be our number one priority.”

    After reading an article from a left wing msm source I can now see why the Dims are not willing to negotiate the wall. They believe that President Trump is increasingly being blamed for the gov shutdown!

    Obviously this is the same crowd that believes Hillary won! Maybe they still believe their own polls!

      Sad that in this day and age one needs to make sure someone is around making sure it is actually videoed, especially if one is a conservative.

    I am sure President Trump has a plan with the AG pick of Mr. Barr. Maybe there just are not any honest trustworthy American law enforcement people left? As I listen to the Barr hearings as the same clowns try their best for their photo opt into stupidity. I am troubled when Mr. Barr mentions Mueller in a praising light. No one even a dead man in law enforcement can not cover up the evil Mueller has engaged in during his corrupt life. Time will expose whether Mr. Barr will walk upright or walk bent over with Sessions. In stretching “according to the law” or “its legal” covering the stench rising from this $hithole of a place known as the FBI/DOJ. Which violates all things against the God fearing American citizens and our country, the USA. Choices, careful Pilgram.

    Why is bathroom Booker always so worried about sewer pipes and gas holes ,you would think he would stfu after that guy wrote a short story about his man rape ,do these people feel no shame, dang dick Blumenthal was asking queer questions too , !!

    Barr looked good today I want to like him but his wife and Mueller s.wife are bible Trumpers together , bible Trumpers are rough because they feel righteous and here i thought the never Trumpers were bad ,

    Problem with Barr is he has the same BMI as Scalia it won’t be long before they find him at the ranch with a pillow over his head,

    Do the gun manufactures bribe the pols to do stuff like this? Gun MFG stock going up.

    “The plan to ban the sale and possession of certain kinds of firearms proposed by Virginia governor Ralph Northam (D.)”…”would ban the “sale, purchase, possession, and transport” of undefined “assault firearms” including “any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.”. – you know, scary assault pistols like any 1911 clone 9mm or 380 ACP.
