    • The unethical leftist “resistance” lawyers bringing this and all the other frivolous actions against this administration are going to end up handing PDJT the best record at the SCOTUS of any Chief Executive in modern times (perhaps in history), which will be especially delicious because his predecessor (#44) holds the record for being overturned, rebuffed and otherwise smacked down by our highest court.

      From what I see in this photo, I believe HILLARY CLINTON still has serious medical issues going on:
      weight gain in the abdominal area, possibly issues with kidneys
      issues with back/spine covered with large jacket and scarf, extra cushion on chair
      These are aside from what I believe are her serious emotional/psychological issues:
      pathological liar
      inner rage from losing 2016 election
      I’m not a psychologist, physician, or psychiatrist. Maybe CTH family of these professions can make informal comment. However, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist or an MD/PhD health professional to get a sense of what’s going on.
      I still am of the opinion that Hillary Clinton is working behind the scenes to again engineer getting the 2020 Presidential DemocratCommunist nomination for herself.

    Is this their new strategy? “We really did not lose.”

    I fear we’ll never be rid of them. Any Democrat who loses is going to cry “foul” — they really didn’t lose.

    So Robert Mueller is going to testify before Congress on May 15th. Is he going to testify he was only kidding around? He didn’t really mean what he wrote?

    “Well, would any of you believe THIS?”

    So, now Mueller is going to testify about what Barr said about what Mueller said? Isn’t that hearsay?

    Are they then going to have Barr come back and testify about what Mueller said that Barr said about what Mueller wrote?

      In the spring of 2016 there were several decades of dirt on this wretched woman already in the public domain that there isn’t anything the Russians could have had that could make her look any worse.

    So, I now see two headlines where Democrats say, in effect that they can not beat DJT in the 2020 election.

    That Impeachment is the only way to get DJT out of the Oval office.

    WHAT kind of strategy IS it, to concede, 1 1/2 years before the election?

    Does this mean they are gonna NOT put up a nominee, since they can’t win ANYWAY, why bother?

    I am trying to imagine a boxer, about to get into the ring with muhamed ali, saying “Yeah, I know he’s gonna win, can somebody take away his Championship, cause I can’t beat him!”

    I confess my one blind spot is when it comes to trying to understand libby behavior. Its to the point where I am ALMOST embarassed for them.

    Agents patrolling near Sunland Park shortly after midnight Tuesday morning encountered what they believed to be more than “400 illegal aliens” who had just crossed the border from Mexico. The agents rounded up all of the migrants and began processing them. A few hours later, the count stood at 424 mostly Central American migrants. Border Patrol officials tweeted this is the “largest group” apprehended by Border Patrol agents.

      At 14:22, Gohmert says, “We find out now, there was a motion and order back in 2012, I didn’t know about it until the last few weeks….It was a motion to allow greater revealing of classified information, which included unmasking, and transcripts and information around the unmasking, to people that were not previously allowed to get that information.

      And, one of the reasons was, ‘if it helps this person understand more about the issue they are working on.’ Well, that could be *anything*!”

    • Once you understand that both fundamental Islam and the American Left have common enemies in capitalism, individual liberty and the Judeo-Christian values that made our country great and that they are allies in a war against Western Civilization, everything falls neatly into place..

    Larry Johnson has another great piece at Col Lang’s, this one on the Mueller Dossier https://turcopolier.typepad.com/sic_semper_tyrannis/2019/05/the-mueller-dilemma.html

    Mr Johnson says there are more than just 302s we should declassify.
    “The key is to look at the report forms; there are three types–FD-1023 (Source Reports), FD-209a (Contact Reports) and FD-794b (Payment Requests). There are 15 different 1023s, 13 209a reports and 11 794b payment requests covering the period from 2 February 2016 thru 1 November 2016…”

    “…a 1023 Source Report is filled out each time that the FBI source handler has contact with the source. This can be an in person meeting or a phone call. Each report lists the name of the Case Agent; the date, time and location of the meeting; any other people attending the meeting; and a summary of what was discussed.”

    Felix Sater and Henry Greenberg are never mentioned by the Mueller Dossier. Why?
    “Once you understand that Felix Sater had been an FBI CHS since December 1998 (and was signed up by Andrew Weissman), you can see how dishonest and deceptive is Mueller’s account of the Trump Tower Project.”

    There is much more. There were several – many – CHSs. Mr Johnson has incredible inside information, first-hand knowledge, and many questions that should be answered by Andrew Weissmann. Or Robert Mueller. Same-same.

    Warming to the wise – do not comment at the Colonels without having knowledge to offer, unless one enjoys being utterly destroyed by a superior mind.

    I just listened to the Byron York interview with Carter Page. It is a frustrating interview as noted by most of the reactions to it in twitter responses and the comments section of his podcast. This frustration is an indication of the current state of the narrative and how far it needs to move before action can be taken. If you look at it from this context then it is an eye opening look at how successful the bad guys have been. Carter Page is an underappreciated hero.

    First, the key to understanding Carter Page in my opinion is that he has an inability to articulate his position clearly. He likes to cite examples and analogies that make the case clearly in his mind but do not translate and he doesn’t summarize his points. He also does not like to verbalize his inferences and openly state his point so he sticks to factual examples to make the point for him without realizing that many people are not connecting the dots in the way he imagines.

    Second, he is getting frustrated that the story is still being framed exactly as intended by the people who have been proven to be liars and his perspective is still not being taken seriously despite the fact that he survived months of attempts to catch him in a lie. He correctly analyzed and diagnosed what was happening very early yet instead of having that bolster his credibility it led to him being cast as a lunatic and/or disinformation agent. Very few seem to appreciate that he was targeted for months by people who wanted to catch him in a lie and/or find some other crime yet managed to survive (and he did this with no legal counsel). Instead of that being a credibility bolster it has been used as evidence something is wrong with him.

    With those two points in mind then it becomes much clearer why Byron York and Page are talking past each other on the questions that York cannot seem to get a clear answer. York is obviously a little frustrated he can’t get clarity on why Page is calling his experience worse than Gitmo. In my opinion Page thinks it is obvious and doesn’t need clarity in addition to his habit of not stating his opinion clearly and succinctly. They wanted him charged with a crime. Badly. The entire story would be different if Page was charged. Think of all they could have kept hidden if they had an ongoing criminal charge to use as a defense to sunlight. Page doesn’t like to use opinion as proof so he avoids saying this but to him it is obvious. Surviving 5 or more intense all day interviews by people who are incredibly motivated to trap you in a lie is incredible. The guy went up against the entire force of US law enforcement alone and came out on top. It’s an amazing accomplishment.

    The other line of questioning that created a situation of talking past each other was a series of questions about the investigation. I think Page’s frustration that the premise of the questions is still based on a series of lies leads to a lack of clear answers. Were they asking questions about the dossier? Page answers that they paid for the dossier. York misses the point. They weren’t “investigating the dossier” –they created it. They weren’t asking questions to find answers they were asking questions to trap Page in a lie. The investigation was a sham. The entire thing was an operation not an investigation and this line of questioning by York (one of “our guys” who has been very on top of things) reveals exactly how far we are from the narrative being correctly understood.

    Over two years ago Page dissected this and went on the record with it. Even before the election his letter to Comey shows he was well aware of what was happening. Yet even now a prominent voice on our side who is very immersed in the details of what happened is still basing his interviews on two premises that were entirely created by the bad guys. Namely that Russian interference was a huge factor and the investigation into it was real. We need a paradigm shift and we are a long way off from getting there. That to me is the most important point that came out of this interview.

    Here are two Page letters, one from Sept 25, 2016 and one from May 7, 2017. For anyone who thinks Page is a bad guy plant into the campaign I think it is highly unlikely that a plant would send a letter detailing the conspiracy. Every indication is that Page is one of the more honest people on planet earth as they were unable to find a way to pin a charge on him.

    And the interview:
