      And now DAN COATS will have to follow AG Barr’s authority that POTUS specifically gave to Barr—the language stating that Barr was not to delegate authority.
      Have been suspicious for awhile that Coats is closet DeepState. That’s finished now if it was the case.

    • This will trace back to the 44th POTUS and former Anti-Semite-in-Chief who was already wizzed off at Gen. Flynn for correctly and very publicly predicting that 0-bama’s precipitous withdrawal from Iraq was going to be a debacle and roll out the red carpet for Islamic savages to fill the void.

      0-bama has a narcissistic personality disorder (NPD, look it up) and simply couldn’t stand being embarrassed on the world stage.

      How are those making calls re: Isreali settlements proper targets for NSA recordings and the unmasking? How is that a subject that is a threat to US safety? How are those phone calls related to terrorists threats?

      This is appalling the Powers used the NSA to spy on political opponents, on any and all Americans, who were supportive of a foreign policy she and/or the Obama admin was against.

      This is politically weapon using the fed gov against political enemies. This Nixon times 1000! 100% spying for against political enemies. Phone calls dealing with Isreali settlements are not criminal or terrorist.

      I don’t get how this issue is not headline news

    Observations from a smaller limb.

    As Europeans go to the polls this week end to send their representatives to Brussels I thought I’d take a look at what is happening economically in Belgium.

    2019 Q1 : +0.2% ,, YoY : +1.2%
    2018: 1.4%
    2017: 1.7%

    the National Bank of Belgium does their NBB business climate survey. It is a composite index of manufacturers, builders, services and trade related firms. The survey of 6,000 businesses measures activity, spending, hiring and investment along with expectations for the next 6 months. Above 0.0 is positive , below 0.0 is negative.

    May: -3.6
    April: -3.2
    March: -0.7
    February: -1.7
    January: -1.5

    They don’t seem very optimistic about the wonderful world of E.U. Globalism in the very heart of the E.U.

    Should we give Mueller “trigger warnings” before sensitive questions.

    Should we give him a safe space, a free speech zone, counseling, a baby-on-board sign, a therapeutic space, a toy bear, a blanket?

    and Mueller headed the FBI?

      Half of the “broken immigration system” is that it is broken by those who are actively breaking it by not enforcing the laws! If we enforced all immigration laws fully it would not be as “broken” as it currently is.

      We would still have the lottery system and chain migration but laws are on the books that cover most all else. Those not enforcing the existing laws are actively Breaking the system.

    Interesting, I didn’t know there was going to be a State Dinner in the UK as well as Japan.

    Also seems like Trump’s oldest four are invited with their spouses. It’s not like Obama didn’t take lots of overseas trips with family and hangers on. I like it because it gets the kids out of the US where they would be asked to comment non-stop about Trump’s trip. Since they all have SS protection, it might actually be easier having them all in the same place vs. various places in the US.

    It’s Friday, ooh-ooh-ooh! It’s news dumps ooh-ooh-ooh! Sadly I have little time to surf the net.
    But this one from Breitbart is GOOD:

    because it looks again at this WP article which was an effort to cover for Obama doing nothing to stop Russian election interference:

    It seems like they are trying to describe a situation where we can’t prove who was responsible for advocating for the dossier and since the underlings were initially kept in the dark and just following orders, they aren’t guilty. Hillary is not guilty because she was just paying for oppo research, Obama was just working off the information given to him and (drum roll please)…
    “Comey, Brennan and Clapper have been the subjects of a dispute in recent weeks over which top Obama administration officials advocated for the infamous dossier to be utilized as evidence in the Russia collusion investigation, as Breitbart News reported.”

    so since they will just point fingers at each other, and there are no witness or transcripts and everyone else was in the dark, I guess we will just have to let them all go. Right?

    Good luck with that plan. I think they are better off trying to distract by shrieking “Impeach” even louder than before…

    This is an excellent article compiling some of the Obozo Regime Communists, although it doesn’t get them all (see the Samantha Powers news above, etc.), including Van Jones, an admitted card-carrying Communist, and the mess the Usurper left us in both the military and the Deep State bureaucratic nightmare:


    “Obama wrote in his memoir that in college, he sought out Marxist professors. A Marxist student at Occidental College, John Drew, confirms that Obama was a revolutionary Marxist in college. Drew recounts:

    Obama… believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back …As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes….” …”There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution. …Obama seemed to think their ideological purity was a persuasive argument in predicting that a coming revolution would end capitalism. ”

    Here’s another:

    “Obama’s pastor and personal hero and mentor, was an avowed Marxist. His church congregants had to sign a pledge to support redistribution of wealth and reject ‘middleclassness.’ Discoverthenetworks reports:

    Rev. Wright’s devotion to the tenets of liberation theology, which is essentially Marxism dressed up as Christianity. … calls for social activism, class struggle, and revolution aimed at overturning the existing capitalist order and installing, in its stead, a socialist utopia where today’s poor will unseat their “oppressors” and become liberated from their material (and, consequently, their spiritual) deprivations. An extension of this paradigm is black liberation theology, which seeks to foment a similar Marxist revolutionary fervor founded on racial rather than class solidarity.”


    ACPFB “was founded by the Communist Party in order to exploit racial divisions in the United States for its own revolutionary purposes.” Its modus operandi was to polarize Americans along racial lines in order to advance the Soviet agenda.”


    “Cultural Marxism” as defined is just about what the true believer leftists think the new “Democratic Socialists” is:

    This is all a continuation of the 45 Communist Goals – mostly all accomplished already – read into the legislative record in 1963 by a brave Florida representative:


    Yesterday I accidentally clicked on a NYT piece on housing: The Progressives are just not … progressive … enough.

    Almost 2000 comments and the vast, VAST majority of readers talked easily about those awful wealthy people, taking the money, what’s “fair,” redistribution, as if it were second nature. I do not recognize the America of my forebears in their thought process.


    Now we have Sanders and Buttigieg who are advocating for straight up Communism, and several others who will single-handedly redistribute, take guns, etc.

    And the real irony is that they accuse President Trump of being dictatorial.

      I think this is a wonderfully concise statement about the entire affair (From the American Thinker article)

      The Obama administration colluded with Rusian agents who produced the Steele Dossier. It was paid for by Clinton, but it was Obama’s minions at the FBI, CIA and White House who weaponized this soviet disinformation against President Trump.

    FTA – The Utah Supreme Court has suspended a city judge for making “shirty and politically charged” comments from the bench and posting “indelicate” criticism online about President Donald Trump. Judge Michael Kwan will serve a six-month suspension without pay for repeatedly violating the Utah Code of Judicial Conduct. In his two decades as a Taylorsville Justice Court judge, the Judicial Conduct Commission has issued Kwan two letters of education and two reprimands for various violations. “We note that previous endeavors to help Judge Kwan correct this behavior have not been successful.

    Brad Parscale’s strategy of making extensive use of Facebook in connecting and mobilizing Trump voters played an important role in electing Donald Trump president in 2016.

    Social media is controlled by the anti-Trump leftists of Silicon Valley. What Parscale accomplished in 2016 using social media was done mostly under the radar. This won’t be true in 2020.

    A major effort is now in progress to shut off the kind of social media political networking among conservatives that was so important to the outcome of the 2016 election.

    In the next eighteen months, how effective will Silicon Valley be in shutting off social media dissemination of news and information concerning the emerging Spygate revelations?

    More generally, if Silicon Valley’s major efforts at disrupting the Trump political support network on the Internet proves to be successful, and if it isn’t being effectively challenged, can Trump be reelected in 2020?

It’s about jobs, it’s about public health, clean air, clean water, it’s about commerce, promoting commerce and an incident like yesterday, I’m finished with that,” Pelosi said.
