      What matters now for Gaetz is how he deals with it. Is he going to go to the Dark Side?

        It seemed to me there was a bit of attitude in this interview, and he is still making mistakes. He should have just kept his mouth shut, took his medicine, and moved on. That he related something he says he was told by the White House, and made a comment which insinuated leaving him off the team was not a thoughtful move. . . .. is not likely to get him where he hopes it will. Maybe DougoftheNorth is right. .. more to it than meets the eye just yet.

          Exactly.

          It’s that type of crap that got Bannon and Scaramucci kicked to the curb.

          If the elected leader can’t trust you to keep your yapper closed then there’s no use for you.

      His vote against the Pres was and is a bone headed move. Gotta wonder why we went so far astray on this issue. There has to be another impetus he is keeping from the voters.

      When you consider that we’ve been fighting in Iraq for 20 years and have lost over 5,000 soldiers and Marines with Gaetz waking up now and saying that killing the Iranian terrorist responsible for the majority of those deaths and planning more is a violation of the War Powers Act is completely absurd!

        President Trump should don a blond wig at every debate, and state quite earnestly that he identifies as a woman at this particular time. He could then become the first female president, according to their arbitrary, gender-bending identity rules. Just like all those athletes who snag “woman’s” titles, he should just go for it. Serve them right!

          Okay, here’s my theory. Biden is the Dems pick with Kamala as VP. If Biden can beat Trump, (which ain’t gonna happen,) soon after the inauguration, they Scalia him and Harris becomes President. Obama has always promoted this whackjob Harris even before she ran for Senate. And rumor is Obama will come out and give his disapproval of Bernie.

        Yes, we here in Chesterfield, Virginia want him to have a rally here. The majority of us just went to the rally in Richmond to stand up against these nutcases who have taken over the state government.

        And don’t let anyone tell you we did not show up in 2018. More Republicans voted for our local reps in 2018 than in 2016. The races were tight, and the state Republican Party allowed Dems to run unopposed.

        Not to mention hundreds of millions, yes, hundreds of millions of dollars flowed in from out of state from Steyer, Soros and Bloomberg to run 24/7 ads and pay ‘volunteers’ from as faraway as Massachusetts to go door to door. Couple all that with the number of liberal New Yorkers, New Jersey residents who have relocated to central Virginia and it’s a wonder the races were as tight as they were. And don’t forget about illegals voting and voter fraud.

    Sen. Grassley Demands Answers From Pentagon On FBI Spy Stefan Halper’s Questionable Defense Contracts
    By Sara Carter – January 22, 2020

    https://saraacarter.com/sen-grassley-demands-answers-from-pentagon-on-fbi-spy-stefan-halpers-questionable-defense-contracts/

    The Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Sen. Chuck Grassley sent a letter Wednesday to the Department of Defense’s Office of Net Assessment’s director requesting detailed information on contracts provided to FBI informant Stefan Halper, who was spying on three of President Trump’s campaign aids during the 2016 election probe.

    The expansive nature of Grassley’s investigation is significant and coincides – but is separate – with an ongoing investigation by the Department of Justice appointed prosector John Durham’s criminal probe into the matter, as first reported by SaraACarter.com.

    Durham’s criminal investigation into the FBI, CIA, as well as private entities connected to the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign and now debunked theory that it colluded with Russia, has also expanded to the Office of Net Assessment. Known by its acronym ONA, the secretive office is run by Director James Baker, who has been in the role since being appointed by the Obama Administration in 2015.

    In the letter to Baker Grassley asks a litany of questions as to Halper’s role within ONA, his contracts, his foreign contacts and whether the FBI, or other agencies, used the ONA office to pay Halper for spying on Trump campaign personnel.

    Full letter:

    Sidney Powell asking for more time to file Supplemental Motion to Withdraw Plea. Apparently some of the newly discovered documents released today are material to the motion. Sidney said something good was coming Friday, but it looks like it may be delayed until next week.
    https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/6234142/united-states-v-flynn/?filed_after=&filed_before=&entry_gte=&entry_lte=&order_by=desc#entry-157

    Defendant Michael T. Flynn respectfully requests a second short extension in time to file
    his Supplemental Motion to Withdraw Plea for Alternative Reasons (“Supp. Motion”). This Court
    previously granted an extension until January 24, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. to file the motion. Counsel
    has been working diligently since then, well into the night and early morning hours, to complete
    the Supp. Motion, in addition to the Supplemental Sentencing Brief filed yesterday. Indeed, Mr.
    Flynn’s counsel has been working continuously since before the holidays on this case. Mr. Flynn
    is requesting another brief extension, however, because he just received another document
    production today from the government that is material to his forthcoming Supp. Motion. See ECF
    No. 155 (government filing that the documents at issue were inadvertently omitted from an earlier
    production). Moreover, the Supp. Motion is factually intensive, and counsel is also requesting the
    brief extension to ensure that the issues are fully briefed for the Court.

    David Mamet speaks….

    “The reaction to Trump to me is fascinating,” Mamet said. “And one day I started looking at it and squinted my eyes. If you take a Freudian analytical concept, turn it inside out — flip cause and effect and see if the dream makes sense. So if we flip cause and effect, the reaction to Trump — which is psychotic — is equal I believe hydraulically to the reaction to a charismatic leader.”

    “The same people growing up right after World War II, you say, ‘Wait a second. How in the world could civilized people say that this little wizened Austrian psychopath was a messiah?’ It’s insane,” he said.

    “So the same force that, God forbid, would be devoted here to the adoration of a lunatic is devoted in the anti-Trump psychosis to the excoriation of a regular human being and, I think, a great president.”

  28. Ok, President Trump’s team is about to have 24 hours in front of the cameras. Here is how that time should be spent:

    4 hours defending the President against these crazy accusations, which is about 3 hours more than is necessary

    2 hours attacking Schiff and Nadler for being corrupt and dishonest about every single thing that the President has done for the past 3 years. Call them dishonest for 2 straight hours along with playing endless video clips where Schiff talks about evidence of Russian collusion on TV. (2 hours might not be enough).

    18 hours of running the most awesome Trump re-election videos they can find. Promises made, promises kept. Maybe some pro USA stuff thrown in there as well, like Miracle on Ice.

    Make the country watch 18 hours of Trump awesomeness and watch the heads explose on the left. It’ll be better than the Kingsman movie.
