    Jeff Carlson ~ Baker Testimony Reveals Perkins Coie Lawyer Provided FBI With Information on Alfa Bank Allegations

    “Closed-door testimony by former top FBI lawyer James Baker revealed that Michael Sussmann, a lawyer and partner at Perkins Coie, gave Baker information alleging a Russian bank was communicating with a server in Trump Tower—an allegation later proven false.”

        Absolutely. This attempted coup was to follow the Watergate model in that a bunch of Senate Republicans were to get on the impeachment bandwagon and force Trump to resign in 6-8 months.

        Now it’s just a dumpster fire of fake news and innuendo they can’t keep straight.

        Remember that before and at the beginning of Trump’s presidency there were various predictions that Trump would be impeached and or resign within a year. This made sense to them because they were sure that he did it all as a publicity stunt anyway and didn’t want to do the hard work of being president. Now, we can see that is what they hoped because there never was anything.

        The further they string this along the more ridiculous it is. Since they were narrative building on the fly, many different people were speaking and none of it can make a coherent picture anymore. That’s why they would love to get obstruction on anything instead. As we know, Trump has not done anything that we can see. So hard to get obstruction when he’s let them run with the investigation as they see fit.

          I see it a bit differently. I think many of them WERE aware that he would do the hard work necessary to fulfill his goals – that it wasn’t a publicity stunt, and he was going to shake their ground…

          …IF elected, which is what I don’t think they thought would happen. (Because they were lazy, inept, and overestimated their cheating skillz.)

          I believe that is why they have gone to extraordinary lengths to put him down.

              It was not entirely that they did not cheat enough. There were people behind the scenes who actively prevented vote flipping and fractional voting so that the true results in most areas stood. (Ca excluded) That will be the case next time also.

              Additionally I think POTUS’ team will hit voter fraud hard using data gleaned from the mid-term fiasco. Folks were being monitored and some of it was made public for all of us to see while it was going on———-so the public is ready for the conversation. Watch.

            I knew that Trump is a hard-working guy, but his results are outstanding. I have to conclude that 1) other politicians are, relative to Trump, lazy, 2) the political process weeds out doers and we are left with poll-watching, PC, public relations windbags, 3) foreign leaders have no idea how to deal with a political cowboy. It’s in the foreign sphere the difference is most stark.

            In the US he is opposed by almost everyone so Trump gets slowed down a little. In their private moments, I think his political supporters and enemies would probably admit that he’s going to win most of what he outs his mind to. Trump is an broken field political touchdown machine. As for his opponents, sometimes he’ll feint and run past you. Other times he’ll use the Earl Campbell technique and run over you.

            “Earl Campbell was one of the most talented and most punishing running backs that college football and the NFL have ever seen. His style was to punish defensive players with the ball in his hands. When former defenders describe what it felt like to tackle him, they sound as if they are recalling a near-death experience. Former Oilers safety Bo Eason: “He hit me so hard that both my contacts flew out. The next day we were watching film with our defensive coordinator, Jerry Glanville, and he asked me why I was running the wrong direction the rest of the game. I told him, ‘Coach, I couldn’t see s—. Earl Campbell knocked my contacts out of my head.”

        Big League politics has uncovered alot on Nathan Phillips. This deal isn’t his first rodeo.

        The threats against these teens are beyond frightening and despicable. Some of the idiotic Left that automatically buys whatever Fake Breaking News that crosses their phones have stepped way over the line in their threats and slander.

        Soulless ghoul, Kathy Griffin wants names of the students. She has a history of targeting children as in her dangerous, hateful obsession with Barron Trump.

        Some clown claiming to be a comedian and country singer put out a threatening tweet, inciting physical injury. Degenerate Wheeler Walker, Jr, whose song lyrics are smut peddling, should be investigated for inciting violence toward a child.

        The media once again started this because they wanted such a stir made, so much fear planted that no one will dare attend any event such as a pro life rally, a Trump rally, etc. No matter that children were ultimately exploited for yet another fake hysteria scenario. The media entertains F-bomb thrower David Hogg but let another teen put on a MAGA hat and stand up for the unborn and a CNN reporter wants to punch him and another journalist suggests a wood chipper as an antidote for Trump supporters.

        Lock ’em up. Start with Kathy Griffin and Alyssa Milano. Enough with children being the targets of these rabid haters. Their words show they pose a threat to the safety of kids.

    The Border Game

    We own some Pols but not them all
    To fight the rules so we can mule
    Our drugs to sell most anywhere
    Then come back to our cartel’s lair

    We’ve heard from some the day will come
    When we can’t go to sell our blow
    Or lug our bulging packs of weed
    This all will stop; we won’t succeed

    It’s there they say, or will be today
    But just not now, I don’t know how.
    Will it be long and block the street,
    And made of steel or maybe concrete?

    It’s gonna be tall, but is it a wall
    Or just a fence from here to hence?
    Some say it’s just not who they are,
    But they are the few, the few by far.

    It is a crime, if you can climb
    Up to the top and then don’t stop.
    Up and over and then you flee,
    But if you stop, will you be free?

    You just go to where you know
    The fence is weak so you can sneak
    Through the hole with your big load,
    Then you just hide beside the road.

    A man will come but just stay mum
    Until he slows and then you go.
    Give your load over to him
    Then make your way back again.

    Home, then gone, but not for long,
    And now you’re back and then repack.
    You’re in the Smuggler Hall of Fame,
    and . . .
    That’s how we play The Border Game.

      But then President Trump throws a cog in the wheel, like canceling Pelosi’s 3rd vacation to Brussels. This simple act:

      1. Highlights her arrogance
      2. Her rejection of negotiation
      3. Her rejection of safety for American families
      4. Reminds us of Air Pelosi and its $100,000 bar tab in her first run as Speaker

    I know that many have talked about the latest skirmish in the leftist war on America, but it is just terrible to see the causalities. Leftists and their anarchist brethren rejoice in each victory. Casandra Fairbanks interviewed some of their mothers:

    Upon seeing the video, Mrs. Smith broke down. She cried her heart out on the phone as she described the guilt she feels for sending her son on the trip and not being there to protect him — even though it was clearly not her fault that they were subjected to this abuse.

    “I just feel so bad — I debated with myself about sending him there because I have always protected him,” Mrs. Smith said through tears. “I didn’t want to let my paranoia about how things are in this country prevent him from experiencing high school. You know what I mean?”

    Mrs. Smith explained that this was exactly what she feared would happen, but that she didn’t realize just how bad it was until she saw the new footage.

    “I didn’t even realize how bad it was until I saw the video,” Mrs. Smith said. “When I saw that video I just felt so bad — where were the people to protect these kids when these men were screaming these things at them? Where were the police?! How can these men get away with that?”

    …Police? Ha!

A pope who seems a corrupt political critter (communist) rather than the guardian of the faith. A pope who cannot or does not want to clean up the mess in the church. I hold nothing against the people of faith who follow the Catholic doctrine but once more what the people want ant what the leaders do are separated by giant schisms.

They get down to some little, tiny item that is, just as bakocarl demonstrates with humor, just enough different to technically be “wrong” and they can have a conviction. Most times things like that aren’t done. But if you play on technicalities, it’s quite easy to “catch” someone in a perjury trap.

When Michelle Obama took her huge trips all over the world and brought her daughters and mother with her the Obamas had to pay for the family members. However, the amount they’re required to pay is far, far below actual cost. For example, they may be traveling on a government plane that costs thousands of dollars to transport them, but they only have to reimburse something akin to the cost of a commercial airline ticket.

    “Every. Single. Time. Ben Shapiro literally joins every single leftwing lynch mob. And it’s not as if he’s unaware that lynchmobs are terrible, stupid things — whenever someone on the right calls for deplatforming or gets a lynch mob going, Not-Binary Ben starts lecturing us all on the evils of lynch mobs.And yet he can’t fu*king wait to join every single leftwing mob.
    I wonder why that is. I mean, he tells me he’s suuuuper-conservative but he clearly believes that any random Catholic schoolboy is a Nazi, and he believes every single conservative saying something bad about a liberal is a liar and a fiend, and he believes every single claim made by leftwing online agitators.

The first thing people should always be suspicious of is when people start promoting someone so young. It’s great when young people are sharp, but only time will allow a person to mature and develop judgment. And only a significant amount of time will allow some to develop wisdom (it’s a VERY rare person who truly develops wisdom). I would have a hard time naming 5 people in the political world (politicians and pundits alike) who truly have wisdom.

      Shapiro was raised in Southern CA by affluent parents that advanced his early career as the teenage pundit. His extended family includes first cousin actors and other Hollywood denizens.

      He has never expressed an opinion about Christians or rural people or frankly whites that wasn’t negative or passive-aggressive.

      In his speeches on college campuses he routinely explains he can’t be racist because he Jewish not white – yes he says that idiocy.

      He has called for countless US wars/troop deployments for the last twenty years (teenage pundit on WND), but never signed up for military service – think about that.

      And finally he ran to say Roseanne should have been fired and shunned and like a week later demanded that James Gunn should never have been fired because there’s nothing wrong with thousands on comments on twitter and elsewhere “joking” about sexually assaulting children including sodomy with his own infant daughter.

      Shapiro is a fake “conservative” making millions as controlled opposition and should be shunned.

      Ace of Spades has it right about Ben Shapiro. He even dumped all over the March for Life with some snide remark about how we’d have protected a “baby Hitler” – which was totally unnecessary to say – one having nothing to do with today’s March for Life and ending abortion, but it enabled the Left to go run with it.

      Ben is a little boy in a man’s body seeking attention. Whatever conservatism he might have had has been turned to the dark side. He despises POTUS, the first President or GOP person since Reagan to even try and fight to restore this country and conservative, traditional values. Never Trumpers are irrational, it’s not about PDJT, it’s about their own instability.

        Its more than that; Chinas economy was in SERIOUS trouble, BEFORE DJT.
        China is in a world of hurt. PDJT KNOWS China is in a world of hurt, and China knows that he knows, and he knows China knows he knows,…

        PDJT has NOTHING pressuring him to accept a deal with China, and Billions in incentives to NOT make a deal.

        Therefore, any deal they offer is got to be better for U.S., than just allowing tariffs to continue, and ramp up on March 1.

        And as we have seen from recent reports, they are putting trillions on the table (empty promises) but are NOT offering serious reductions in I.P. theft, or other fundamental issues PDJT has raised.

        He’s right, China better quit playing games, and bite the big one, otherwise “the beatings will continue, until attitudes (and ‘offers’) change.

        And China can’t take much more.
        Think 2008 ‘financial crises’, but gov.stimulation won’t help.
        Xi is about to face 7 billion very p.o.’d citisens, and he’s got NOTHING.

          He has the PLA. Never forget that it was the trade embargo Roosevelt placed on Japan that drove them to attack us. Cornered governments usually turn to war as the way out.

          Trump knows China’s nuclear threat is real and their regional military ability is significant. So he is only going to push Xi so far. Trump will give him a way to save face while getting what the US needs. My only concern is that Xi is a true believer in Marx/Mao, a fanatic in his own right. He doesn’t necessarily see things the way Trump does. An attack on Taiwan is, imnsho, not out of the question. And yes, Trump certainly is aware of the risks.

      As far as the Federal workers, I’m sorry for the hard workers and those that are actually doing a good job. But the majority of them on furlough, who, btw, got paid in previous shutdowns for their little vacations – most of them are Democrats who vote for bloated government. They weren’t going to vote GOP anyway.

      BTW, a bloated bureaucracy is what brings down a nation, so maybe this administration can do a little streamlining. Obama grew the government egregiously.

    If we want our country back, our government under our control, and the Constitution protected, we have to consider a massive “taking to the streets”.

    Millions of MAGA people have to demonstrate that the Tyranny must be ended and MAGA principles have to be the future. Rule of Law is our social contract. But we must enforce it with a flood of Washington streets for months of MAGA people.

    We are the only force on Earth that can take back America for Americans.

    Bikers and truckers first. Than hundreds of thousands of SUVs. Then millions on foot. In waves of masses of people. Week after week, month after month until the corrupt are driven out of DC and our duly elected President is freed of this on-going, never-ending coup attempt.

    Only the realization by the corrupt government and Congress and Justices that this nation is our country and we are the source of authority, not government institutions, will lead us back to the Republic we all idolize as the best creation for government.

    They have to see, hear and feel our outrage and determination to drive them out.

    It’s time.

    Else, there will be violence and civil war after DJT. They will leave us no other choice when they shred the Bill of Rights completely and come for our property and guns.

      That’s a tall order. What we need in the meantime is to stand up against the totalitarian freaks in more simple and individual ways. For example, if that Catholic School had stood up for their students, or if Kevin McCarthy had stood up for Steve King, or if Mozilla had stood up for Brendan Eich… the list of ridiculous cowardice and caving under the puerile viciousness of the Left is endless. This kneejerk cowardice is what empowers and sustains them. We could stop them in their tracks if even in one high profile case we not only stood up but went on the attack against them. They wouldn’t know what hit them. And it would have a ripple effect, encourage others.

      Thank you. What you propose is reasonable and Constitutional.as opposed to the view by many that King Trump should just make it all happen on his own.

      It’s OUR government, the feds are OUR creature. We must yank the leash.

      Additionally, States must divest from fed $ and false fed authority. The States created the Constitution, and thus the Federal government; therefore, the true power and authority in this country is in the hands of the States.

      Spot-on observation: it’s high time WE the People quit expecting other’s to fix our problems.

    Sundance, can you enlighten us a little more on the “Yellow Vest” uprising in France.
    My thought was the Government has a clear advantage because of the EU Gun Laws.
    In France, to buy a weapon, in line with the European Firearms Directive, a hunting licence or a … Category B6, B7, B8: Specific weapon for riot and order control (not available to civilians).
    So Civilians may not possess a firearm weapon for self defense.
    So what would it take for a populist shift in government and policy. They are certainly filling up the streets. The Globalists will not stand for that. Can the people demand a true and faithful French government? We see how hard the British are having with BREXIT.
    We here in the USA have a very powerful right that the globalists want to remove, in fact they have to remove it if they ever want to succeed in this country.

    Consider this:

    Why does PT not drop the MOAB on all the corruption and injustice?
    Is he letting it play out in his own good time? To what end?

    Compare that to, why does God allow Satan to spread his evil in this world for eons when God could end it instantly?

    Although both are painful, through faith there will be a good and just ending.

    Then we will understand perfectly why.

    • Pat, I can’t take out of my mind the image of a lip-biting Pelosi saying, when asked about the murder of a police officer, “the plural of an anecdote is not data”. (The sterile cow.)

      SO . . . we are supposed to believe that the “anecdote” of a violent, drugged, huge mugger being lawfully stopped by a police officer IS “data” – data showing how racist America still is, how violent police is etc.

      However, while their anecdotes become data, our data are mere anecdotes!

      For shame.
