        Robert, no way will they win and they are now desperate because they are afraid they are going to be removed and Obama knows this and is also trying again to confound and brainwash the slow learners. We are the government and power but have been conned to think this Legislature department owns us. NO way, Jose. It is now up to us to clean up the mess we allowed to take place.

                Their motto is that “all power flows from the barrel of a gun” as they simultaneously seek to take your guns. If you are armed with an AR 15 the government is scared of you. If you know how to use that AR 15 you can take out an entire SWAT Team stacked outside your front door. That scares the hell out of the government. That’s why they want your guns.

        First sign of encouragement that their tearing down our institutions and society will be when the Dept. of Education is eliminated and school control goes back to the local jurisdictions and states. Break up that propaganda monopoly which seems to be teaching young minds that socialism, communism good, capitalism bad. That’s why so many young people don’t question the Oretzo-Cortezo’s, they have no experience to counter the disinformation.

              Yes, a good question.

              My imagination is that, similar to what Dr. Carson is doing with HUD – make the department work, held accountable to doing its basic mandate, so

              in the Dept. of Education put in a Secretary that will turn the focus 180 degrees away from creating a nationalized format for educating students along the lines of a government approved belief system and

              back toward the three “R”‘s – reading, writing, (a)rightmetic. Put the emphasis on having the different school districts, within the states compete with each other as to which one has greater achievement through focusing on the basics, reinstall civics, humanities, and then the states be encouraged (through federal funding) to incorporate the successful school’s formats;

              once the different districts are refocused to meeting the needs of their individual communities, then slowly have the federal hands-on approach step back, kind of like how the federal government is beginning to allow the different State’s design the use of the allocated medicaid dollars.

              Start somewhere, emphasis that only federal dollars go toward increasing competency with the basics, encourage the States to create bragging rights as to encourage businesses to want to set up shops in states that put out highly educated high school students, even design courses in community colleges that will enhance employers to want to hire these students, –

              but start somewhere to cut the grasp that the union has on education.

              Clearly DeVos isn’t making much headway. At least, as far as we know since not much news comes from that part of the President’s Cabinet.

            The Tea Pary’s clearly stated goal was to primary REPUBLICAN incumbents.
            Obama ‘should’have told the IRS to EXPEDITE the applications, NOT slow them down!

            That horse may have left the barn, but more parents are opting out of govt schools and choosing homeschooling, private/religious schools.

      If you think about it, weaponizing the intelligence community against a Presidential cabinet is exactly something the Obama administration would do. They weaponized the IRS against Tea Party groups, enlisted the Department of Education into the service of radical race theory, played buddy buddy games with radical environmental groups using the EPA, used its regulatory oversight of the banking industry to go after the financial interests of businesses it didn’t like (Operation Choke Point), and suborned voter fraud using the Department of Justice Civil Rights division.

      Using the NSA to harvest intelligence information on Republican candidates for partisan political purposes would be par for the course in an administration that could do all those things.

      She’s right about a lot but she’s very wrong about some key issues. First of all the idea that Comey was the mastermind is ludicrous. That almost made me stop watching. This was way above his pay grade. Secondly, some members of Congress were fully aware of what was going on. There were members of both parties that were in on it. The third thing is the FBI never really believed that the dossier was true. They were already spying on the Trump campaign and everyone else. The dossier was just an excuse for what they were already doing.

          She KINDA skirted the edges when she said “This was NOT ‘partisan’ !”

          Given how much there is to know, she did a good job of covering the basics, and what there is good evidence to support.
          We SURMISE that Republicons were ‘in’on it, and I believe protection OF the Republicon wing of the Uniparty was a big motivator, but there is limited proof, as yet to support that.

          I look at BHO, siccing his IRS on the tea party, as evidence the Uniparty saw DJT as a threat to the Republicons, as much or more than the Democrats.

          Republicons are the strength of the Uniparty, but also POTENTIALLY the Uniparties weakness.

              I think its great that she presented the “its not partisan” and how the small group basically attempted a coup. Even saying “what if Bush had done this to Obozo” or “is it ok if Trump does this to the 2020 Demonrat nominee”. Those are powerful examples of why EVERY American regardless of political affiliation should be ensuring this never happend again.

              As much as I despise Obozo and Clintons, I would want justice served if they were a target of the same treason. Treason is not partisan.

        Comey was relegated to gopher status after he fumbled the presentation of the Clinton email “investigation”. Brennan, and those reporting to Comey, knew that Comey was incompetent and by January 2017, Comey was capable of little more than hiding behind the drapes in the Oval office.

        well, I think therein lies the crux, how to get rid of the motivating factor. from the things I have researched and seen, the motivation is one of basic survival, and not just politically. imho this is a cabal that has been engaging in illegal arms dealing, drug running, sex trafficking, extortion money laundering, land theft by force, and much more.

        the punishments for these crimes are grave enough to explain this desperation, this fight or flight mode they seem to be in. or as I see them acting like cornered animals. it’s not just the trillions of dollars, it’s not just the threat of losing control. it is that in truth, the control was a vital.part of their success in avoiding exposure and punishment.

        but, how do we get out of this, and not set off events that are even worse than what is? the task is beyond daunting, this affects not only our own government and the people of our nation. but, one must understand that, many of these crimes could be viewed as acts of war, by other nations. so, I don’t know what the answer is of how to do this, take this cabal down and render justice. I do know that the people of this nation need to face these hard truths. or else, this will happen all over again.

There are many rumors and in reading what’s online seem to revolve around a specific event that came full circle in 2001, when he was hospitalized at Sibley for a nervous breakdown. He has a number of reported mental issues and is apparently very unstable. Despite that, he is calculating, devious and very plugged in to both Soros and Blumenthal… Either way, your question is important and it might be the start needed for any project related to destroying Media Matters…

        Yes, we still do… although there are some who’ve been around for awhile who refer to Outside/Lower 48 sardonically as “The United States” (as in, “Where are you going on vacation?” “The U.S.) I had to ponder that for a little while until I look at most maps/graphics of “the United States of America” that show only the Lower 48.

        Case in point: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USA_Flag_Map.svg

        The Alaskan Natives (indigenous people, not, for instance, Caucasians who happen to have been born in-state) seem, overall, to be left of center. Anchorage is showing the signs of a liberal influx: out-of-control crime (property crimes and felonies), significant numbers of ‘public space residents’ (the drug/alcohol addicted and homeless), a majority left-of-center Assembly (I believe, of the 11, only one – currently – leans conservative), a State Legislature that is majority Democrat – and a few Republicans whose ideology ends right when it involves gaining some measure of power in the State House and Senate. Plastic bag bans, tax increases, proposals to tax alcohol to fund homeless programs, feces and trash on the streets and parks, murders, cart thefts, legislation to be soft on criminal offenses (including some sex crimes against underage people)… the list goes on.

        Do you want a perfect example? Lisa Murkowski.

    3. Mule-liar knows when “the game is over”. He has disappeared. Comey has no inner barometer & continues to stay in the headlines.
    4. Hil-LIAR-eeeee’s fingerprints are all over this. She is the Big Kahuna”. Steele is the off shore “patsy” diverting the trail from stateside. Her Loyalist & Russian linguist Nellie Ohr was passed cash in a blank envelope.
    5. Comey owes financial loyalty to Hil-LIAR-eee. Follow the 🍿💰

    It only takes so much hindsight to come to the conclusion, that when the ‘insurance policy’ was launched on the incoming administration. The goal was to wrap up the new administration in chargable obstruction actions such to the point that even before the President’s team could settle into office, his impeachment would result in, “What?”

    Mr Pence becoming President, a do over election.

    No the clear siren call from the MSM would have been to push that Mrs. Clinton was the rightful President.

    They say hindsight is a better part of 20/20 and part speculation.
    We will never know.

    What we do know is either the President is a political lion of mythological proportions, or there where many that very early on provided clear insight and guidence.

    Make no mistake, the ‘insurance policy’ gambit was predicated on President Trump and his Cabinate reacting in a typical beltway mentality. By first circling the wagons with a crisis management team and then launching a counter offensive that would invariably be forced to play wack-a-mole until his Presidency was brought down. All the pieces were in place for the wack-a-mole coup to succeed. It just need the President to bite down and act like a typical politician.
    He did not!!!

    And,it did not pan out that way.

    So, what fundamentally changed the equation to the President’s advantage. That is a question of monumental importance.

    I am going to throw this out there, and yes I know many are going to be revolted by it. Even I wrote extensively against what, “I am going postulate.”

    However, after listening to Ms. Strassel’s presentation my understanding has changed in regards AG Jeff Sessions.

    What I am going state is a statement for posterity and historians to decide.
    Ms Strassel, you are very welcome to take my insight and make it your own.

    Here it is…

    By AG Sessions recusing himself, he forced the conspiracy to take ownership of the drive to impeach.

    Remember, my insight is that the ‘insurance policy’ gambit had a narrow window to achieve its goal, namely within the the first few months after the inauguration.

    If AG Sessions had not recused himself, he would have been the point man target of the wack-a-mole campaign in the MSM. In other words the frontman of obstruction in the obstruction trap.

    By AG Jeff Sessions recusing himself that avenue of attack fell massively on the shoulders of the very individuals that were attempting to change the outcome of the 2016 election.
    In other words the very inconvenient facts of the political opposition basis of the collusion could not be overshadow and drowned out in the MSM running with the collusion narrative seeking to achieve an expediency.
    In other words everything the AG would have attempted to counter, would have been colored by the MSM as just one part of the obstruction narrative.

    Just because the recusal open the door to the special consul of Mr. Robert Mueller and played into the hands of the coup attempt, “Does not mean his recusal was not calculating.”

    Yes, I am suggestion that at some point Mr. Sessions recusal, “Will require historians undertake a re-examination.”

    That is a bit of history that has not been written. Yet!!!
