          No surprise at all the globalist Isis lover McCain family would support globalist perv Biden.
          My question is; will ms Ronna McDaniel, GOP, exclusively support PT or will she decide to help fund her uncle if he does decide to run.
          Any thoughts???

          I listened to the local philly Rich Zeioli show on the the way home, he is very well connected in politics, he was speaking with a big wig in the republican party, they have everything in place for Pa, (we’ll see) Joe biden left Scranton when he was 9, he lies when he says he’s a blue collar worker from Pa., he went to a ritzy school in De. he is a phony. The conversartion was they don’t think Joe will win the nomination, no one is clammoring for Joe. We Pennsylvanians got to do our part to get Potus reelected.

          But these are the 2 members of the family that are in the media spotlight, are outspoken and are politically active on the national stage. So, yes, they are representative of McCain himself (2 that seem closet to him) and the public image of the family.

          If McCain were still alive maybe he would continue to be a RINO, claiming GOP membership but the fact that is wife and daughter are being outspoken for Biden is reflective of who McCain really was behind close doors and in private life

      • Katherine McCoun says:

        Glad they have officially come out of the closet. Glad so many so called GOP “leaders” have come out of the closet. Bush clan in ’16 and now the McCain clan ’20. Romney also has showed his true colors supporting 3rd party in ’16.

        No wonder it was hard for the GOP voting base to get behind the Bush Sr & jr/McCain/Romney Uniparty!

        And, yes, we were right all along –>> there is little to no difference between the former, so called “leaders” of the GOP and the Dem. Truly, a Uniparty!

        So glad the masks are being removed and all is being revealed.

    Sundance writes
    “If President Obama or President Trump sign a Presidential Finding Memo granting the CIA authority to begin formulating a strategy or covert mission, these eight people hold the oversight responsibility to ensure the constitutional and legislative laws -which would govern any executive action- are followed.

    It is important to understand that everything the White House, CIA, NSA, and U.S State Department does is approved by these eight members who are accountable to the U.S. electorate. These eight representatives are the intelligence oversight “check” within the constitutionally established check and balance inside our federal government.”

    So is it logical to say, the following:
    If X-President Obama signed a Presidential Finding Memo granting or telling the IC to spy on the President Trump’s campaign, these eight people hold the oversight responsibility to ensure the constitutional and legislative laws – which would govern any executive action- are followed would detect and prevent it?

    A presidential memorandum is a type of directive issued by the President of the United States to manage and govern the actions, practices, and policies of the various departments and agencies found under the executive branch of the United States government. It has the force of law and is usually used to delegate tasks, direct specific government agencies to do something, or to start a regulatory process. There are three types of presidential memorandum: presidential determination or presidential finding, memorandum of disapproval, and hortatory memorandum.

    So if these eight members (i.e., The Gang-Of-Eight) were corrupt and they decided not to hold these organizations White House, CIA, NSA, FBI and U.S State Department accountable for their actions. Then only the U.S. electorate could hold them accountable . But, how would the U.S. electorate know of their actions since they can determine what is classified?


    Do we have reason to believe that the following is true: Obama order the IC to spy on the President Trump’s campaign and the Gang-Of-Eight knew it and did nothing?

    As House Democrats ramp up their post-Mueller investigations into President Donald Trump, his strategy for responding is simple: Resist on every legal front. The administration is straining to hold off congressional investigators, including their efforts to obtain the president’s tax returns, his business’ financial records and testimony from former senior aides.

      He has Very deep pockets, PACs and the Chamber of Commerce on his side. Remember, in 2014 he was endorsed by Bush, Rubio, etc.

      If she stands strong on the issues, she may have a real shot despite (or maybe because) the fact that she has no political experience.

      Tillis’s weak strategy? Move to the middle! Hasn’t that been proven to not work time and time again in the last few years? If one moves to the middle one looses the GOP base support but does not gain Dems. The Dems still vote for the Dem.

      But the RINO “middle” is where he belongs as the wavering, flaccid middle of the Uniparty is exactly where he has been his entire career – both at the state level and now in the Senate.

      “Tillis is trying to move toward the political center, with a slew of recent statements – and an op-ed in The Hill – attempting to position himself as a moderate in polarized Washington.”

      Sounds to me like he will loose on his own or be pulled to a win by President Trump’s coat tails in the 2020 general election. I would love to see him loose in the primary and a real MAGA candidate win NC in the general next Nov!

    Biden has no fire to run, if he did he would have been the first out of the gate, who’s telling him to do this? https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/24/report-joe-bidens-advisers-scrap-campaign-launch-video-at-last-minute/ Tensions among former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisers are rising ahead of the Thursday launch of his 2020 presidential bid, according to a new report, with a last-minute replacement of his announcement video and major worries about his fundraising needs.
    The New York Times reports Biden will enter the crowded Democratic field with zero campaign dollars and will need to raise at least $100,000 per day until Christmas if he wants to match the amount of cash that rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) had in the bank on April 1st. Members of Team Biden are said to be concerned that the 76-year-old may not be able to raise the type of money Sanders and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) did in the first days of their campaigns. Each candidate took in roughly $6 million within the first 24 hours

      Get this pull quote from the linked article:
      “I don’t think the challenge is underestimated by the Biden team,” RUFUS GIFFORD, President Barack Obama’s campaign finance director, told the Times. “This is going to be tough. This is going to be a heavy lift,” Gifford added. “The Obama people are not a given, AND THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO WORK FOR THEM JUST LIKE EVEREYONE HAS TO WORK FOR THEM.” (emphasis mine)
      Well, isn’t that just a terrific slip of the tongue by Gifford?
      So Ole Joe will have to WORK FOR THE OBAMAS to get their “support” just like EVERYONE has to work for them?
      So Ole Joe has to work for the Obamas to get at the SOROS money? To get the benefit of having VALERIE JARRETT shadow-directing the campaign? Does Ole Joe have to first get the “Mother, May I?” from HILLARY CLINTON?

    Puerto Rico oversight board loses bid to extend claims filing deadline
    Luis Valentin Ortiz
    4 MIN READ
    SAN JUAN (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Wednesday denied a request by Puerto Rico’s federally created financial oversight board to extend a looming deadline to file claims, the latest hurdle for its plan to recoup billions of dollars paid to bondholders of potentially invalid debt issued by the island’s government.

    Judge Laura Taylor Swain, who is hearing Puerto Rico’s bankruptcy cases, declined to extend a two-year statute of limitations that runs out on May 2, saying it was “not something I’m persuaded this court is allowed to do.” Edward Weisfelner, a lawyer for the board, said this could mean the board could be forced to file hundreds of lawsuits by that deadline against bondholders in order to preserve its claims.

    The board, which filed bankruptcy for the U.S. commonwealth in May 2017 in an effort to restructure about $120 billion of debt and pension obligations, had requested more time, arguing that the judge had to rule first on the validity of certain debt before claims against scores of bondholders could be filed. Extending the deadline would have avoided unnecessary and costly litigation, according to the board.

      When I was younger I dreamed of traveling the world. Now that I’ve done a significant chunk of that, am happier in my “not-so old” age to stay in the States, always in very, very, very rural areas. Here we we’ve been importing human garbage for decades on a massive scale and now I have to find those tiny niches where I can still find the fabulous American wilderness and real Americans without the flotsam ruining the experience. Using a liberal term, I embrace other ethnic individuals as long as we can share similar values. Not happening, with decades of mass immigration (legal and illagal). Feel like an endangered species and not supported lately by our President.

    I had to take annual anti-harassment training at my workplace. I laughed out loud when I saw one of the cartoon images accompanying descriptions of what not to do …. it was a man standing closely behind an uncomfortable-looking woman, the man had both hands on her shoulders. It was incredibly similar to several creepy Joe Biden photos! Shortly after popped up this text:

    When it comes to harassment, intent doesn’t matter. Even if you didn’t mean to offend someone, your conduct cam still violate policy and the law.

    Biden would probably be fired from my workplace and his pathetic excuses that he’s been doing this for a long time or that he didn’t mean to make people uncomfortable wouldn’t save him. This was pretty much one of the points Lucy Flores made when she spoke out about how he was overly touch-feely with her. She was at a political event as a candidate for office, this was essentially her workplace, she would be protected in any normal workplace.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/24/politics/kushner-immigration-plan/index.html The first part of the proposal deals with border security. This would include constructing physical barriers where needed and modernizing ports of entry in the north, south and on the coasts — so that every person, vehicle and cargo container is scanned to prevent anything illegal from coming into the country, and that trade is facilitated more quickly. This proposal, the official said, would protect rights and respect due process while also preserving the right to detain, adjudicate and remove any individual if need be, especially people trying to circumvent the legal system.
    The second part of the proposal asks what should legal immigration look like. With 185 different kinds of visas, the system right now is easy to game, the official said. This proposal would for now keep the level of immigration at the same level it is currently, and work toward a merit-based system based on the Canadian, Australian and New Zealand systems.

Also, POTUS has stated that he wants to get to the bottom of what happened and how the Mueller investigation started. All roads lead to the BHO Whitehouse and Hillary. IMHO, she will be running from the Trump WH and not for the WH as POTUS. Lastly, I don’t think she has the personality or stamina to run a campaign.

    According to Robert Mueller, a president can be guilty of obstruction of justice simply by exercising the powers of the president — if he does so with “an intent to obtain an improper advantage for himself or someone else, inconsistent with official duty and the rights of others.”
    Wow. That’s a new standard for a president’s Article II powers! I don’t see it in my pocket Constitution.

    What Mueller is saying is that he should hold the position of supreme exalted master president to review all decisions made by the man who was elected to the office of president by mere voters.

    Mueller can’t say Trump obstructed justice. The investigation found no Russian “collusion,” or related crimes, so there was no justice to obstruct. That’s why there’s nothing in the report about “perjury,” “destroying evidence” or any other recognizable crime, like, say, “accepting a cash bribe.”

    Instead, Mueller proposes to review the decisions of the person duly elected president on a purity-of-motive standard. “An improper motive,” the Mueller report states, “can render an actor’s conduct criminal even when the conduct would otherwise be lawful and within the actor’s authority.”
