    Seeing “Frodo” Cuomo lose his sh*t gives me GREAT joy!

    When he was on Good Morning America back in 2008, there was a story done by a local station regarding a family member of mine which was picked up by GMA to run nationally… He introduced the story incorrectly and then editorialized afterwards in a way that completely changed the entire premise of what had happened. I was livid and tried to get them to issue a retraction or correction of his comments but no one would respond to my requests.

    He was an arrogant, smug, dishonest little punk then and is probably worse today, if such a thing is possible…

      Please If anyone knows how to reach out to Lou Dobbs Please would you do so
      This after noon on Dobbs he was talking about how the President has pivoted on gun control and the border wall and how he is losing his base because he seems to think that he can do no wrong but we all know that he is talking about more back ground checks and not taking our guns away and as for the border wall He is doing what I see as trying as hard as he can and he has put the people in place to help him do that but now even Lou Dobbs seems to be showing the negative side of Fox news and so I would appreciate it if someone might show him that there is this new contract of 14 miles and where its at..
      please Thank you Have to go back to work but just wanted to see if this had been put up Thanks for any help you can give too..

    The Democratic senators’ brief was filed in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. City of New York, which dealt with legal limitations on where gun owners could transport their licensed, locked, and unloaded firearms. They are urging the court to stay out of the caseย brought by the NRA-backed group, claiming that because the city recently changed the law to ease restrictions, the push to the Supreme Court is part of an “industrial-strength influence campaign” to get the conservative majority to rule in favor of gun owners.

    • One of the reasons Fredoโ€™s father Mario – a popular early front runner among democrats – never got his much desired shot at the presidency in โ€˜92 was because the Clintonโ€™s Arkansas Mob rolled onto the national stage and started a thinly veiled whispering campaign about the Cuomo Family having ties to the Italian Mafia.

      Fredo was too young then and too stupid now to know about this. . . . . . His big brother Andrew โ€œAmerica was never that greatโ€ Cuomo ought to clue him in.

    Trump Chickens Out, Delays Trade War Tariffs to Save Holiday Season

    In order to save the holiday season, Trump delayed imposition of his recently-announced trade war escalation.

    From the WSJ:

    “The Trump administration abruptly offered Chinaโ€”and U.S. consumersโ€”a reprieve from sweeping tariffs that were poised to hit on Sept. 1, sending stocks sharply higher and raising hopes for reviving stalled-out talks on a trade deal.

    The office of the U.S. Trade Representative said Tuesday that it will instead delay the new tariffs on many major categories of items, including smartphones, laptop computers, toys and some other items, until Dec. 15. The USTR said some products would be removed from the tariff lists entirely, based on health, safety, national security and other factors.”

    Trump changed his mind. So, what else is new?

    A big win is always just around the corner.

    “Schumer to ask Trump to divert $5 billion in border wall funding to fight gun violence, white-supremacy extremists”

    Oh, HE|| No!
    Schumer has officially LOST his mind. How dare the Dems even dare to ask, & after blocking wall funding for 2.5 YEARS while criminals flooded in! Not to mention wanting it for an imaginary problem. Both shooters were Leftโ€“extremists!

    They’d no doubt use it to target & silence Conservatives. When we all know the only VIOLENCE is coming from the Left, & directed AT anyone supporting PDJTโ€“ & of any color.

    Does he really think he can trick PDJT into falling for this, & ticking off a wide range of his supporters?

    Stop believing the propaganda & fake polls, Schumer. The vast majority of the country is NOT on board with your Socialist agenda. The BORDER is a FAR greater THREAT, one that is REAL for many reasons!

      I think it was just a ploy. Now he can say the President cares more about keeping out brown people than he does protecting Americans.


  23. An interesting [British …] take on Epstein’s death and Conspiracy Theories, brought to you โ€“ yes โ€“ by

    Closing comments from the above:

    The FBI is investigating the case and who knows, we may get some answers. Perhaps Epstein did after all, kill himself โ€“ prisoners facing the prospect of 45 years in jail are quite likely to be depressed; moreover the sociopathic billionaire might even have relished evading justice and depriving his accusers of their days in court. But until more evidence of his suicide comes to light, (and we really do need to see some camera footage), it is reasonable to think that some other explanation is, on balance, more likely.

    Taking that line doesn’t make you barmy โ€“ just someone who very sensibly breaks with the binary when it comes to “conspiracy theories.”

      I wonder if Lokhova can sue the U.S. Federal Government for PAYING Halper to lie to reporters about people whose reputations the U.S. Federal Government wished to destroy. Thoughts?

      There’s certainly circumstantial evidence that Flynn was specifically targeted. And Lokhova was just a useful, unwitting pawn… collateral damage, shmollateral shmamage…

    Anthony Scaramucci was fired from the Trump White House after 11 days. Now, heโ€™s convening A-listers for bipartisan healing.

    From WaPo an excerpt.

    LAS VEGAS โ€”ย Anthony Scaramucci walked into the backstage green room at the Bellagio Hotel, spotted Valerie Jarrett and spread his arms wide.

    โ€œI want to do a Joe Biden, but I know thereโ€™s air traffic control now and I donโ€™t want to invade your personal space,โ€ he said with a laugh.

    โ€œYou are cleared for a hug,โ€ Jarrett said with a huge smile, and the two embraced like brother and sister โ€” the Trump administration flameout and President Barack Obamaโ€™s close adviser.

    โ€œThe Mooch,โ€ as Scaramucci is known, was in this city of spectacles this week as host and ringmaster of SALT, a glitzy, A-list investment conference that doubled as a political healing ground.

    Scaramucci, fired from the White House in 2017 after a disastrous 11-day tenure, convened a parade of other jettisoned Trump administration figures, including Chris Christie, Jeff Sessions, Corey Lewandowski and, most remarkably, Gen. John F. Kelly, the former White House chief of staff who axed him.

    They mingled in the Bellagio meeting rooms with Obama-era figures such as Jarrett, former national security adviser Susan E. Rice, former CIA director David Petraeus and Adm. William McRaven, the former Special Operations chief who orchestrated the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

      Wow. This is the most fascinating development yet. So all the losers from the Trump team are joining forces with the Left? Fascinating. The Deep State is very worried. Very, very worried. Pray for the President, his family and the country.


  41. Bubby says:

    FTA “Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to “heal” the court in the near future….The Democratic senators’ brief was filed in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. City of New York, which dealt with legal limitations on where gun owners could transport their licensed, locked, and unloaded firearms. They are urging the court to stay out of the case brought by the NRA-backed group, claiming that because the city recently changed the law to ease restrictions, the push to the Supreme Court is part of an “industrial-strength influence campaign” to get the conservative majority to rule in favor of gun owners…If the court still decides to hear the case, a ruling against New York City could prevent other cities and states from passing similar gun control laws.”

    Is this a threat to Supreme Court Justice Roberts not to vote with the conservatives? Or was it meant for Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh who have voted with liberals in the past? Or to all three? Something just doesn’t smell right about this brief?

    Bill Clinton cheated?

    But, John Daly — who’s been friends with the Prez for years and golfed with him at Trump National in NJ on Monday — tells TMZ Sports, it just ain’t true.

    “It’s funny how these people say, ‘does he cheat?’ Well, when he goes out and plays, if he hits a bad shot, he might hit a Mulligan, but he doesn’t count it when we’re playing the match.”

    For those not down with the golf lingo … a mulligan is essentially a redo after a bad shot.

    The 2-time Majors winner doubled down, and called out someone else who was in the Oval Office.

    “It’s just amazing that people call him a cheat in golf. You wanna call a cheat in golf? I’ll tell ya, Bill Clinton, he took a Mulligan on putts, chips, when I played with him.”

    “I don’t think Bill Clinton could’ve broken 100. At least the President, Mr. Trump, he can shoot 80. 78 to 84, probably.”
