  1. Trump attacks Bloomberg height. At face value some say it is petty but in context he is saying he doesn’t have a presidential presence. Jimmy Carter – who was a disaster- was last president under 5-10. Before that Truman. Every other president since at least Wilson over 5-10. Bloomberg is an oligarch with no personal intangibles. The height is just to get under his skin.

      The thing is, you can be shorter, but have a commanding enough presence that people won’t notice as much, or at least it won’t be one of the first things they think of when describing you. That is not Bloomberg. Little Mike is not a commanding presence, he doesn’t seem like a leader. I remember seeing him walking on tv years ago, and I couldn’t believe he had been elected Mayor of New York. Of course, then they elected DeBlasio, and it made more sense. NYC has been dumbed down beyond repair.

      By the way, I say this as a person of below average height.

      I still maintain that it was a brilliant way to rile up the BurnieBots. PDJT started it right before the debate, where Boobberg was expected to give himself a boost by using something to stand on.

      PDJT pointed out that it was unfair for Mike to get an advantage that the others don’t get. If Mike gets a box, EVERYONE should get a box!

      See how that appeals to the commies? (Plus, we’re all watching out for the box now, LOL!)

      Apparently..in the real world (earning potential) Bloomberg has been pretty damn successful. Attacking physical traits of someone who has shown enough leadership capability to amass that kind of wealth is a tactic I question. His policies. on the other hand, seem a more logical point of interest. Attacking height as a means of characterizing a multi billionaire as a weak CEO (which was Trump’s angle in 2016) just doesn’t ring true to me.

        I agree with Garavaglia on this issue. The other labels given by Trump address character flaws. “Lying Ted,” “Low energy Jeb,” etc. Mocking a physical trait — set by forces (DNA) outside one’s control — is a tactic I also question. There are so many ripe areas — “Elitist Mike” — that would better define Bloomberg.

      • I agree that it is petty, but if you are going to be in the public eye, then petty attacks just come with the territory. The attacks on President Trump’s physical attributes are frequent, but he turns around and doesn’t care. It’s called humor, a sense of which has been in woefully short supply of late.

        My instincts say it’s a bad tactic, but who am I to question POTUS’ judgement on this? Look where he is.

        It bothers me because I know three kinds of Dems; the crazy Bernie supporters, the haters of Trump (it takes a person capable of craziness to hate Trump) and all others who shrink from insults such as these.

        My real estate agent and friend is one such person. She’s a sweetheart and a pro. She’s NOT an ideologue and NOT a person bound to a brand such as “Dem” or “R.” She’s simply a nice person who has been taught that insults about such things as physical traits are impolite, and even more importantly, in the end, are more destructive than constructive.

        I put “low energy Jeb” into a special category, however: that was no worse than simply saying to the audience, “I have watched Jeb over the years and feel he doesn’t tackle policies with energy and passion as I do.”

        It WAS more effective than that long sentence. It was NOt the kind of thing that put off my friend.

        The Marco “small hands” DID. She had found Marco Rubio an effective speaker and she “liked” him, much as I had years before, before I learned he was no different than the other GOPe’s.

        She said that when Donald Trump called him that, she decided then and there she’d had enough of his “childish insults.”

        She is the kind of voter who really could have been won over, or little by little moved away from Marco Rubio, with a different kind of statement from candidate Trump.

        I guess POTUS feels there are more of the other kind of folks than there are folks like my friend.

    Plymouth Rock, iconic landmark that marks where the Pilgrims first landed, was vandalized

    (CNN) — Preparations to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims arriving in the New World were in full swing in Plymouth, Massachusetts. But then residents woke up to find that the beloved landmarks that make their city special had been vandalized.

    Plymouth Rock was one of them.

      You have not been there have you? The first thing you learn from the museum is that there was no rock. The rock that is there was put there. I understand that it is a ‘symbol’ and that is why it was put there, but the story of landing on a rock is just a story.

      While on that subject they also have the log book from the voyage. They were not blown off course by a storm. The ‘leader’ of the group asked the captain to land in the North and blame it on a storm. The passengers were indentured servants on their way to Virginia but did not want to end up there. Again, another story.

      It was probably vandalized by leftist revisionists who think the Pilgrims shouldn’t have come to America. If they think that, they should go back to “where they came from”. Many would learn “where they came from” had been invaded and conquered at some point in history.

    “Warner also declined to weigh in on the public offer from the whistleblower’s attorney of providing answers to questions in writing and under oath.

    “Chairman Burr and I are working on how we’re going to go through our proceedings. I’m really proud of the fact that we’ve managed for three and a half years to continue to put out broad, bipartisan reports,” Warner said. “I’m not going to get into any details on what we’re going to do. … We’ve been pretty close to the vest.”

    A Democratic committee source said that protecting the whistleblower’s safety and anonymity “is a top priority.”

    “We do not expect to be asked to cooperate with any effort that might endanger his or her safety,” the source said.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) (*every following word is a lie*) and his staff have said repeatedly that he did not have direct contact with the whistleblower and doesn’t know the individual’s name or the details of the complaint, which the whistleblower’s lawyers have said Schiff had no role in drafting.

    Democrats have also noted that whistleblowers routinely reach out to Intelligence committees, before being directed to an investigator general or attorney.

    “I don’t know who the whistleblower is. I haven’t met them or communicated with them in any way. The committee staff did not write the complaint or coach the whistleblower what to put in the complaint. The committee staff did not see the complaint before it was submitted to the inspector general,” Schiff told senators during the impeachment trial.

    “In short, (*I’m a habitual liar*)the conspiracy theory,” he added, “that the whistleblower colluded with the Intel Committee staff to hatch an impeachment inquiry is a complete and total fiction.”

    • The Democratic corporation will ultimately decide to sell the product of their Board of Directors’ own choosing. And that product will be: Hillary Clinton. Mark my words on this.

      Like a moth to a flame, she will be irresistibly drawn to a rematch. And, this time, the Democrats will be confident that non-auditable electronic voting machines can be rigged across the country to give the victory to her no matter how the people actually vote. People will immediately know that they were robbed of their votes – that the boxes were “stuffed” – but there will be no evidence by which to prove it.

      And so, Washington DC returns to normal: eight years of Clinton, followed by eight years of [Jeb] Bush, at which time Chelsea Clinton will be old enough to be elected, after which another Bush son will be old enough, and so on. Yes, they presume they’ve got America’s political future all figured out for the next 32 years or so.

    On this episode of: “As the Swamp Oozes”

    Lindsey Graham promises to hold those responsible for the FISA abuse to account. At the end of his statement, Lindsay winks at the adoring press and they wink back to signal, they understand.

    Many in congress and senate including staffers, as well as the DOJ, FIB, CIA are reporting that they are hearing bagpipes in their dreams as they toss and turn at night. Some say like a ghost haunting their conscience, something they didn’t know they had.

    Senate & Congress are just simply dispelling any pretense of doing the “Peoples Business” so they are just going to keep a vigil by simply burning pallets of cash on the steps of congress. A reporter found a concerned citizen who was watching the spectacle and in his folksy wisdom, “we’ll at least they’re not stuffing it in their pockets.”

    In a show of solidarity with his constituency, Bernie Sanders was filmed crapping in the toilet paper aisle of a local grocery store, while chewing on a Tide Pod, proclaiming “workers of the world unite!” Assembled panels throughout the MSM proclaimed; “Bernie’s unstoppable, a true man of the people.”

    Tubby Nadler and Pencil-neck Schiff got into an altercation in the hallowed halls of congress. Apparently Adam is still pissed that Tubby stole his spot for the closing argument, screaming; “if only that could have been me we could have gotten that bastard.” In the altercation Tubby was able to get Adam on the ground and sat on him…ouch! The word is they’re still in the hallway, and the Capital Police are having a fork lift brought in to get Tubby off the floor and thankfully Adams okay, apparently he likes fat old men sitting on his face.

    In other news: Mike Bloomberg is making another political ad, this time using the Keebler Elves. His handlers wanted to show his unity with the working man and needed to tap into some of that dwarfin magic, while locking up the midget-dwarf vote at the same time. Again assembled panels in the MSM spoke of the brilliance of the ad, locking up his base.” No pun intended.

    Meanwhile at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave our Fearless, Great President Donald J Trump is kicking ass and taking names as he makes a West Coast swing ” THREE RALLIES” while Making America Great Again. God Bless President Trump and his family as they maneuver the swamp.

    Next week on: “As the Swamp Oozes.” Lindsey promises to get to the bottom of the FISA abuse. Bernie was seen in negotiations with the DNC and Bloomberg in swank restaurants, everyone knows he’s in there fighting for the little people. Tubby and Adam elope, Bloomberg takes offense to Bernie’s statement about the “little people” but still come to some kind of understanding. When Bernie was reached for a comment on the meetings he only said: “workers of the world unite.” One reporter note he had a real estate flyer having to do with Island Properties? The assembled panels on the MSM were confused.

    KAG!

    1. Why do un-elected, private banks, who own the Federal Reserve, have the power to create public money and lend money to the Federal government for interest? Per the constitution our government has the sole right to coin money, not private banks.

    3. Why do we have an income tax? Income tax penalizes production and is a first step to socialism.

    • The “perps” are openly terrified of Barr because he is actually doing his job. They will of course very soon write up another Bill of Attainder and try a second time to impeach Trump for daring to get too close. Because, to them, the US Government is and of rights ought to be “the world’s largest and most powerful organized crime entity,” accountable to no one on Earth.

    • BSA lost its way a long time ago when it tried to become “woke.” Its problems are of its own making.

        Disagree on “problems of their own making”. The BSA was taken to Federal court and forced to become woke. Then the same people who forced them to because woke, sued again because all the people and concepts forced upon them to become woke spawned much of the tragedy involved in these suits.

        So, it was become woke or shutter the doors at that point.

        The sum total of forcing the BSA to become woke and then sue them out of existence due to actions by all that came with becoming woke was a premeditated act to destroy an establish organization that effectively produced leaders and solid male citizens.

      I recently learned that all of the royalties from Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America” were designated to support the BSA; it made me sad that the crazies have ruined something once wholesome and worth supporting.

      I mean, something ELSE once wholesome.

      T Rex Tillerson should share much of the blame since he was on the board or might have been the CEO of the Boy Scouts when they voted to include gay scouts and scout masters in their ranks.

    I got perma banned from a leftist gaming site for saying I would vote Trump over Bernie. The reason was “inflammatory rhetoric”. Despite being polite and conversing with a few lefties on the subject a mod decided to give me the boot. Lol.

    Btw, I think the lady who led the jury on the Stone case gives Trump the perfect excuse to pardon him. It’s obvious she had an agenda and probably had significant influence over the other jurors.

    This is getting interesting – remember this name – Joe Cofer. What is his connection to Biden?

    DOJ Nears Decision on Whether to Charge Blackwater Founder Erik Prince
    Prince could face charges stemming from his testimony to Congress about Seychelles meeting and potential arms-trafficking violations.

    Why are they going after Prince?…….Maybe to shut him up on this:

    Continuing our look at the Board Members of Burisma Holdings, we find another interesting character. Joseph Cofer Black joined the board of Burisma in February 2017. At first glance, the name may not ring any bells, and perhaps that is by design, but it is a name that has been intertwined with the U.S. Government and politics for quite some time.

      Lou Dobbs Discusses the FBI Investigation That Never Happened…
      Posted on May 1, 2018 by sundance

      https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/05/01/lou-dobbs-discusses-the-fbi-investigation-that-never-happened/

      However, a few more days later, November 4th, 2016, an even more explosive development as Erik Prince appeared on radio and outlined discoveries within the Huma Abedin/Anthony Weiner/Hillary Clinton email issues that was being blocked by AG Lynch.

      Prince claimed he had insider knowledge of the investigation that could help explain why FBI Director James Comey had to announce he was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s email server last week.

      “Because of Weinergate and the sexting scandal, the NYPD started investigating it. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they searched his laptop, and sure enough, found those 650,000 emails. They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing,” Prince claimed.

      “They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said.

      “The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.

      “I believe – I know, and this is from a very well-placed source of mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in New York – the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in this investigation, and they’ve gotten huge pushback, to the point of coercion, from the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that had been unrelated in the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost two years ago. That’s the level of pushback the Obama Justice Department is doing against actually seeking justice in the email and other related criminal matters,” Prince said. (Link)

      An earlier Grand Jury in New York had refused to return an indictment against the NYPD in the Garner case. As an outcome of that grand jury finding, and as an outcome of their own investigation, the local FBI office and Eastern District of New York DOJ office was not trying to pursue criminal charges against the NYPD officers involved. This created a dispute because federal prosecutors (EDNY) and FBI officials in New York opposed bringing charges, while prosecutors with the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department in Washington argued there was clear evidence to do so.

    Getting Barr to do the what is good, right, and just is a matter of us exposing the truth to as many people as possible and putting pressure on the DOJ and the pols by letting them know that “we know”. Each one of us can be a Lou Dobbs.

      Dobbs was great yesterday, but you can’t really cover the whole James Wolfe/Mark Warner/Steele/Waldman/Deripraska elements of the coup it 5 or 10 minutes.

      It would help if Sundance could brief Dobbs on asking the right questions.

      I find it interesting that the FISA Warrant was leaked to the New York Times perhaps even before Warner had a chance to read it. The next day the New York Times outed Carter Page as the person under investigation. However, the New York Times didn’t publish the FISA Warrant itself. They just sat on it. Why? The Times published the Pentagon Papers.

      Why was Warner trying to covertly contact Steele? Why did Republicans (Burr and Rubio) give Warner Cover?

      The Times had the FISA Warrant a whole year before the controversy over the Nunes Memo arose. Devin Nunes stated the FISA Warrant was the bulk of the FISA application. Adam Schiff claimed that there was much more evidence against Carter Page than just the FISA application. The Times knew the truth. Did the Times back up Devin Nunes? No. Did the New York Times push the Adam Schiff agenda? Yes.

      Conspiracy to commit sedition by wrongfully removing a duly elected President of the United States? Any overt act in furtherance of a crime makes one guilty of conspiracy. If you buy a gun for a person you know plans to use the gun to rob a bank, your are guilty of conspiracy to rob the bank.

      Bloomberg was a bad Republican, and he’s an even worse Democrat. I would expect the loonies to see that… he’s the antithesis of what they are screaming for on a daily basis. That new poll that has him at 19 percent is utter nonsense.
