  2. Lest we forget- this is what the Storm Troopers Weissman and Mueller are capable of doing to any innocent citizen who makes the mistake of supporting our President Trump while in a position of power. Sickening.

      This is what Weissman and Mueller are capable of doing to a citizen who pleads guilty for crimes he committed.

        Wow, albertus magnus! So that’s the reason why the Podesta brothers are still free after doing much more mischief than Manafort? I see, the Podesta brothers were not forced to plea guilty to anything. In fact, they were not even investigated by the dynamic duo (Weissman-Mueller). I wondered why, but now I get it. DemoRats cannot possibly have engaged in the type of fraud that Manafort did, right? So, there was no need to investigate them, and there is no reason to investigate and prosecute the Clintons.

        I’m shocked, really. I had to become an adult (and a Treeper) to realize how wrong my parents were when they taught me that I should not commit a crime if didn’t want to do the time.

    “Leading Democrats in the House of Representatives said the chamber was likely to vote later on Thursday on the spending bill, which was approved by the Senate on Wednesday.”

    “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave in to pushback from moderate Democrats and dropped plans to add migrant protections to the Senate bill.”

      This is NOT a win for us. Look at the Senate bill. It gives BILLIONS to continue the inflow of illegals, particularly children, and gives those who “sponsor” them (illegals already here) immunity from deportation.

      I have no doubt Trump will sign this garbage bill and many it about as a “win” in order to save face after his two-week grace debacle.

      What a mess.

    Since Ann Coulter is being brought up a lot today regarding her prescient objections to Justice Roberts, I thought it would be a good time to link to yesterday’s column, about the Republicans
    who vetted Kris Kobach for the job of the DHS head, and their ridiculous questions that helped bring about the current situation at the border.

    “Everyone else wants the names of the FBI officials who approved the unprecedented law enforcement dragnet against low-level Trump aides in the middle of a presidential campaign.
    I want the names of the staffers at the Republican National Committee who prepared Trump’s “backgrounders” on potential hires for the new administration. (I’m not interested in finding out who leaked them because I assume it was the Russians.)

    When America is no more, future generations are going to want to know who murdered our country.”

    Interesting story in the Philly Inquirer about the Never Trumper Val DiGiorgio who showed his true icky colors. I mentioned his screw up a couple of days ago. One thing that shows his never Trump background is this quote “DiGiorgio, on the other hand, had just watched Hillary Clinton cream Trump in Chester County, despite a GOP voter majority in the county where he ran the party, and despite Trump’s statewide upset.” He and the Chester County Republicans (GOPe) did little to help Trump in the County… they didn’t come out and say it publicly, but there was a big air of ‘he’s not one of us’. All they needed was a sniff and their nose in the air

    The party needs rebuilding in Chester County with supporters who understand Trump and can counter the attitudes that would rather DJT just went away. Too many Republicans around here (and I’m sure other areas) believe the MSM and there needs a good strong counter to that in the whole area, not just Chester County.

    This is an area where you will see few Trump signs, first they would get stolen like Romney and McCain before, not just one or two but hundreds overnight. People also don’t want to take the grief from their neighbors or find vehicles or their homes vandalized, or get killed by their rapid, crazy, Trump hating neighbor. That really did happen. Although the news coverage was slanted his killer was convicted of 1st degree murder. I bet there were things in the trial that the reporters left out, because the news coverage of the murderer being Anti-Trump was pretty burried. RIP Brooks Jennings, West Goshen, PA .

    There was a 10:30 pm briefing last night by Japan Foreign Ministry on PM Abe’s bilateral conversations on the sidelines of the main events. Including his meeting with Xi.

    “IN talks with President Xi, Japan’s Abe pointed out importance of a free & open Hong Kong under one country, two systems. Abe also emphasized the importance of upholding international values such as respect for freedom and human rights, including for Uighers in China”

    “Asked about President Xi’s response to PM Abe’s comments about Hong Kong, foreign ministry spokesman says “I don’t have the response of President Xi to that statement.”

    “Abe told Xi that he would be watching if Belt and Road “will be implemented in a way that effectively respects international rules and standards.”

    “PM Abe requested of President Xi that China exercise
    “self retraint” in the East China Sea surrounding the Senkaku islands”

    “We are following with close attention what is happening and hoping that differences will be solved ….in a constructive manner.” Re: China-US trade talks”

    “Japan is the 3rd economic power in the world. We have interest in what is happening between the No. 1 and 2 so we want things to go well. It’s as simple as that.”

    When asked, Japan’s foreign ministry spokesman says he would not use the word “mediation” to describe the role Abe wishes to play with regard to US and China trade negotiations and they did not discuss Huawei.

    Well done PM Abe.

    Delayed OIG Reports

    I understand delaying the Fradulent FISA OIG investigation due to 3 large developments:

    1. Steele interview
    2. State Dept exculpatory memo, debunking FISA #1
    3. UK CYA memo right after the election (Steele not reliable), not given to Flynn or FISA court. Still unknown if its been located (UK must have a copy)

    Question: so what about the (2) Comey and (3) FBI leakers and bribe takers (50-100 employees) OIG investigations?

    Is Michael Horowitz planning to release several at the same time? FBI’s Christopher Wray – didn’t he already say no one will be punished, even before the investigation and facts came out? Isn’t that a DOJ call? Is he pulling a James Comey?

    Number 2 and 3 are the forgotten investigations.


    • freespeechfanatic says:

      Amazing to me that anybody still thinks the IG or his vapid and toothless reports are good for anything.

        They will be detailed and thorough, with citations.

        With Rosenstein gone, will Horowitz show some chutzpah and call out illegal, criminal activity?

    Belt&Road push back

    “Tanzania scraps massive Chinese port project
    In one of the biggest pushbacks against Chinese president Xi Jinping’s Belt Road Initiative Tanzania has suspended the construction of the $10bn Bagamoyo port project, citing the onerous financial conditions put in place by Beijing.

    The project, which broke ground four years ago and was set to be run by China Merchants Holding International, would have been the largest port in East Africa.

    Tanzania’s president John Magufuli has accused the Chinese project backers of presenting “exploitative and awkward” terms in exchange for financing. Chinese financiers set “tough conditions that can only be accepted by mad people,” Magufuli told local media“

    The Hill article, “Putin praises Trump as ‘talented,’ says liberalism has ‘become obsolete'”

    Putin called POTUS Donald in the interview. They must talk a lot. I expect their meeting will be acceptable.

    FTA: Russian President Vladimir Putin in a new interview praised President Trump as a “talented” person, saying that despite not being a career politician Trump knew how to relate to voters.
    “Mr Trump is not a career politician,” Putin told The Financial Times. “I do not accept many of his methods when it comes to addressing problems. But do you know what I think? I think that he is a talented person. He knows very well what his voters expect from him.”

    He also praised Trump’s initiative to enforce stricter immigration policies along the U.S.-Mexico border while arguing that the “liberal idea” had “outlived its purpose.”
    “This liberal idea presupposes that nothing needs to be done. That migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants have to be protected,” he said. “Every crime must have its punishment. The liberal idea has become obsolete.”

    The Hill article, “Mnuchin pushing Trump to put Secret Service under Treasury control: report”

    We’ve discussed this issue before. Pros/Cons?

    FTA: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has reportedly been pushing President Trump to put the Secret Service back under the control of the Treasury Department.
    Discussions on the matter have been taking place between the White House, the Treasury and Secret Service officials over the past year, The New York Times reported Thursday, citing administration officials.
    The Times reported Trump supports the idea of placing the service under Treasury control, but some senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials have been contesting the move. The DHS officials have expressed concerns about no longer controlling an agency that includes cybersecurity and investigative elements.
    The Secret Service was moved under DHS in 2003 after the department was created.

    Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Humanitarian Assistance and Security at the Southern Border Act, 2019


    • jx says:

      Sec. 401. The Secretary of Health and Human Services (the “Secretary”) shall prioritize use of community-based residential care (including long-term and transitional foster care and small group homes) and shelter care other than large-scale institutional shelter facilities to house unaccompanied alien children in its custody. The Secretary shall prioritize State-licensed and hard-sided dormitories.

      Sec. 404 None of the funds made available in this Act under the heading “Department of Health and Human Services—Administration for Children and Families—Refugee and Entrant Assistance” may be obligated to a grantee or contractor to house unaccompanied alien children (as such term is defined in section 462(g)(2) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. 279(g)(2))) in any facility that is not State-licensed for the care of unaccompanied alien children, except in the case that the Secretary determines that housing unaccompanied alien children in such a facility is necessary on a temporary basis due to an influx of such children or an emergency, provided that—

      (1) the terms of the grant or contract for the operations of any such facility that remains in operation for more than six consecutive months shall require compliance with—

      (B) staffing ratios of one (1) on-duty Youth Care Worker for every eight (8) children or youth during waking hours, one (1) on-duty Youth Care Worker for every sixteen (16) children or youth during sleeping hours, and clinician ratios to children (including mental health providers) as required in grantee cooperative agreements;

      Get that? Detention facilities must have a staffing ratio of 1 worker for every 8 minor illegal alien.

      The Democrats are doing what they always do, getting as many snouts in the public trough as possible so when the trough is taken away all the pigs squeal and so the trough remains. In other words they are creating a constituency of workers who have a vested interest, they are institutionalizing a taxpayer funded industry.

    Look. At. This!

    The 116th Congress convened on January 3, 2019, and will conclude on January 3, 2021.

    Both chambers are expected to be in session for fewer days in 2019 than they were in 2018.

    The Senate is scheduled to meet for 168 days in 2019. 18 fewer than In 2018 when they met for 186 days!

    The House is scheduled to meet for 130 days. 41 fewer than In 2018 when they met for 171!

    From 2001 to 2018, the Senate spent an average of 165 days in session each year, and the House spent an average of 140 days in session. In 2019, the Senate is scheduled to exceed its average number of days in session by three. The House is scheduled to meet for 10 fewer days than its average.
