      We not only need a Democrat leader to stand up to The Squad. We need a Democrat leader to stand up to Speaker Pelosi and end the clown show. Real work needs to be done for the good of the country: immigration, infrastructure, spending bill, boarder security, healthcare.

      Who is more entertaining: The Mod Squad, one black, one white, one blond or the Jihad Squad, two black, two brown, all dumb? I will take the Mod Squad.

      Interestingly, Peggy Lipton, who was the blonde, was born to a Jewish family and was married to a black man, musician Quincy Jones. I wonder if the Jihad Squad would approve.

        I used to agree with you, but it’s clear that it’s too late for the Dem party. Once they embraced abortion and ridiculed those who are pro-life out of their party, once they ejected God from their platform, once their platform turned away from morality it was proof that there are no longer any “good” Democrats. No one, absolutely no one who embraces their platform is on the side of God. They are against all that is good and holy as they have sold their souls. It’s time we quit thinking that sanity can take over again in that party. Satan is their god whether they know it or not.

    To win in 2020, Democrats need to woo Trump supporters. Instead, they are creating them.

    Americans love their country. Lee Greenwood’s anthem is the best example.

    “If tomorrow all the things were gone
    I worked for all my life
    And I had to start again
    With just my children and my wife”

    “I’d thank my lucky stars
    To be living here today
    ‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom
    And they can’t take that away”

    Few songs resonate 35 years later. “God Bless the U.S.A.” does.

    Washington and the press do not know it. Donald John Trump does. That is why he is the president.

    He pinned the Odd Squad as unpatriotic. At their press conference, they showed it.

There plenty of topics in which the GOP has room for debate — legalization of marijuana and closure of military bases throughout the world (libertarian causes), as well as federal support of infrastructure, net neutrality and regulations on big Pharma (big gov’t causes). In none of these topics has Trump’s policy been crystal clear.

      … “Investigators in both Congress and the Justice Department are trying to figure out how inaccurate information made its way into the dossier. One theory is that Russian operatives planted disinformation with Steele, a former MI6 officer, in hopes of smearing Trump.” …

      😁 Those sneaky Russians are still to blame! They just tricked our entire Gov into believing BS.

      Let’s not first ask WHY… why was a Fed LE agency wasting time investigating PAID FOR, Political Dirt?? KNOWN to have originated from a partisan Company SPECIALIZING in generating SMEAR CAMPAIGNS. A Co that relied upon questionable tactics, & absolutely NO consideration for FACTS, or even CREDIBILITY of sources.

      It just so happens, they paid a hack foreign-spy as a source to SPIN fictional narratives they included in their Dossier.

      The entire premise that the public should consider any of it as anything but tabloid trash, is laughable. It’s also embarrassing they presented to the FISC with a straight face, & worse no Judge called them out!

    Feds end investigation into Trump Org and hush money payments

    Federal prosecutors in New York have ended their investigation into the Trump Organization’s role in hush money payments made to women who alleged affairs with President Donald Trump and have been ordered by a judge to release additional information connected to their related probe of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, according to court documents filed Wednesday.

    CNN reported Friday that the Manhattan US Attorney’s office had approached the end of its investigation of the Trump Organization and wasn’t poised to charge any executives involved in the company’s effort to reimburse Cohen for money he paid to silence one of the women. That payment constituted an illegal campaign contribution, according to prosecutors. Trump has denied the affair allegations.

    What C-FAM says about the Trump administration withholding money from UNFPA.
    C-Fam Applauds U.S. Decision to Withhold Funding to UNFPA

    The Trump administration should be commended for once again withholding funding for the United Nations Population Fund. The agency’s work in support of family planning agencies that carry out coercive policies in China, and its choice to give its inaugural population award to the Chinese government’s family planning division are troubling. But the reasons to defund UNFPA extend far beyond that.

    UNFPA claims among its chief partners Marie Stopes International and the International Planned Parenthood Federation, both of which aggressively promote abortion around the world. To fund an agency that partners with organizations that are ineligible to receive U.S. funding due to this administration’s policy, Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance, would be contradictory and counterproductive.

    UNFPA also falsely equates “unmet need” for family planning with lack of access, which is false in all but five percent of cases. While UNFPA might well claim credit for having nearly saturated the global market for contraceptives, they instead misinterpret the facts in order to call for more funding.

    Finally, when it comes to funding, UNFPA could not be more clear that U.S. support is unnecessary. To quote UNFPA’s chief spokesman, “Some partners have pulled out of the reproductive health field, but UNFPA has more money than ever.”

    The U.S. is the single largest bilateral donor of women and children’s health overseas. The funding withheld from UNFPA will be transferred to global health funding.

    The Trump administration deserves applause for consistently denying funding to UNFPA. Doing so would be inconsistent with the administration’s values and priorities, duplicative in the context of widespread availability of family planning, and fiscally irresponsible given the fact that UNFPA has already more than made up the difference.

    According to spreadsheet used by the FBI the Dossier could not be confirmed before the First FISA Warrent on Carter Page. This was only one of three sources confirming this to be true.

    Muller, should be in Deep Trouble based on the following.
    Judge Dabney Friedrich ordered Mueller to stop pretending he had proof that the Russian government was behind the Internet Research Agency’s supposed attempt to interfere via social media in the 2016 election,

    The DNC was not hacked by Russia, revelation came in a court filing by the government in the pre-trial phase of Roger Stone, a long-time Republican operative who had an unofficial role in the campaign of candidate Donald Trump. Stone has been charged with misleading Congress, obstructing justice and intimidating a witness.
