The GOP #RepealObamaCare battle is not a battle between moderates and conservatives. It is a battle between liars who voted to #RepealObamaCare when they knew Obama would veto such a law, and those who refuse to lie to the American people regarding #RepealObamaCare.
Likewise the resignation of Sean Spicer as a protest against the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as Communications Director and the public rebuke of Attorney General Jeff Sessions by President Trump are attempts by President Trump to keep his campaign promises.
Further, the Spicer, Sessions, Scaramucci, news and moves are intricately tied to the #RepealObamaCare strategy of President Donald J. Trump.
Let’s look at the Jeff Sessions schlonging by President Trump first. We like Jeff Sessions and think he was an integral part of the President Trump election in 2016 as well as a bright hope for the present and future. But first and foremost Attorney General Jeff Sessions has to do his job.
President Trump appointed Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General. But all along, as Jeff Sessions explained to congress, he knew he had to recuse himself from any Russia investigation because, according to Jeff Sessions himself, the reason he recused himself from doing all of his job was because he was a campaign official for Trump2016:
“I have decided to recuse myself from any present or future investigations of any matter relating in any way to the campaign of the president of the United States,” Sessions told reporters at the Justice Department.
He added that his announcement “should not be interpreted as confirmation of the existence of any investigation.”
The attorney general said he made his decision about recusal after his staff recommended that he step away from any investigation related to the Trump campaign, since he had been involved in the campaign.
Those like us who like Attorney General Jeff Sessions need to understand that his reasons for recusal were well known to him, or should have been known, before he took the job of Attorney General:
“My staff recommended recusal,” he said. “They said that since I had involvement with the campaign, I should not be involved in any campaign investigation. I have studied the rules and considered their comments and evaluation. I believe those recommendations are right and just.”
In a statement following his remarks, Sessions noted that his recusal goes for “any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaign for president of the United States.”
“Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself?” Trump said.
Sessions said he promised at his confirmation that he would recuse himself if his “impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” He said he stepped back from the investigation because it probed a campaign he was involved with.
The Jeff Sessions recusal has ramifications beyond the Russia nonsense. We want a bunch of special prosecutors appointed, but Jeff Sessions’ recusal means we won’t get them unless he resigns. Right now we need a special prosecutor to investigate leaks coming from the Deep State and that includes the Justice Department. We need a special prosecutor to investigate the special prosecutor. But, recusal means no one getting that job done. Special Counsel Mueller must be put on a leash but because of recusal Mueller will do as he pleases and continue his witch hunt of the president.
Much that needs to be done by the Justice Department is not getting done because of Jeff Sessions’ recusal. Attorney General Sessions is doing fine on some issues but he is not fully engaged in pushing the Trump Agenda because Sessions recused himself from many issues that go back to campaign promises made by now President Trump. Between personal loyalties and people we like we will always choose to promote the agenda the American voters voted for. Jeff Sessions (and Deputy Rosenstein) need to consider removing themselves and sparing the president the task.
President Donald J. Trump wants the Justice Department to move rapidly to implement his agenda and that is why he built a fire under Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The AG must either build a fire to get his department moving forward or he will burn.
As to the Sean Spicer resignation and the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci this too is President Donald J. Trump demanding action by taking action. Spicer wanted the job and left when Scaramucci got the job. Those who recall the presidential campaign will recall that President Trump will chop heads when heads need to be chopped. That’s why the President has also reorganized his legal team which now consists of Ty Cobb, Jay Sekulow, and John Dowd.
Recall the last time Anthony Scaramucci was in the headlines. CNN made accusations against him. Scaramucci threatened CNN with lawsuits. CNN ran from the fight and fired top propagandists from the network. In brief, Scaramucci fights tough and President Trump wants fighters:
Three CNN staffers have resigned following the publication and subsequent retraction of a story linking a Trump transition team member to the Russia-related investigations.
Big Media won’t understand any of this. What we see is President Trump ready, willing, and able to fight. And that’s how you win the battle to #RepealObamaCare.
How to win the #RepealObamaCare fight? Um, fight, declare war!
President Donald J. Trump will rally his supporters in Ohio this week. This is a way to force Ohio Senator Portman to vote to #RepealObamaCare now, in the same way Portman voted in 2015 (when he knew Obama would veto) to #RepealObamaCare:
Senator Portman is a liar if he does not vote in 2017, like he did in 2015, to #RepealObamaCare! That’s the message President Trump, Scaramucci and his team, must push forward.
President Donald J. Trump should go to Nevada and West Virginia to campaign to #RepealObamaCare and against the liar senators from those states. Those two senators are liars that need to be called out. President Trump can be particularly effective in both states. In Nevada, Senator Heller is up for election this year. Senator Heller can be called a “liar” if he votes to not #RepealObamaCare. Senator Heller should also be primaried and defeated.
President Donald J. Trump has already made the threat against go to Hell Heller:
Liar Heller of Nevada was for #RepealObamaCare before he was against it:
Expose liar Dean Heller and send him to electoral Hell, Mr. President.
Senator Lisa Murkowski is a liar too:
Senator Capito is up for election when President Trump is up for reelection in 2020. Senator Capito must also be made to realize that she represents a state that voted by over 40 points for President Trump. President Trump should go to West Virginia and call Senator Capito a liar because she ran for election to #RepealObamaCare, but now is against #RepealObamaCare:
Run liar Capito’s ads against ObamaCare against her in West Virginia Mr. President. Senator Capito is a liar!
At the same meeting in which President Trump reminded Dean Heller about next year’s election, President Trump also discussed the illegal Barack Obama subsides for ObamaCare. President Trump has thus far not pulled the pin on this grenade but he has that weapon as a Trump card. Any Senator that does not vote to #RepealObamaCare must be held to account and the President can blame them for the collapse of illegal ObamaCare subsidies. We’ve written about the illegal ObamaCare subsidies before and cited news reports to explain this grenade:
House Republicans also sued and won an initial ruling over the Obama administration’s payments to subsidize health care costs such as co-pays and deductibles for Obamacare enrollees under a certain income level. A federal court agreed the funds were illegally appropriated; the Obama administration appealed that decision. But Trump could discontinue the appeal, and hold that over Democrats in negotiations to replace the law: If he chooses to discontinue those payments, health insurers — which would be on the hook for those payments even if the government funding dried up — would probably flee the markets or jack up prices next year. Millions of ACA customers would likely see their premiums spike and their plans become unaffordable.
“If Trump were to stop the cost-sharing payments, he could send the individual insurance markets into an immediate tailspin,” says Bagley. “It would be an extraordinary hit.”
President Donald J. Trump has a lot of grenades to throw at liars such as Heller and Capito and a lot of Trump cards up his sleeve. If President Trump wants to destroy ObamaCare all he has to do is implement ObamaCare as written and blame the Obama Dimocrats and GOP senators who refuse to #RepealObamaCare.
President Donald J. Trump should also warn the country about government control of healthcare. All President Trump has to do is retell the saga of Charlie Gard and the British run healthcare dictatorship that refuses the parents of Charlie Gard from taking their child for medical treatment at their expense outside of Britain’s dictatorial hospital establishment.
Conservative group warns of primaries for those who don’t back ObamaCare repeal
A top conservative group is threatening primary challenges to senators who vote against a repeal of ObamaCare after Senate Republicans failed to coalesce around a replacement plan.
Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who now serves as the president of the Senate Conservatives Fund, drew the line in the sand on Tuesday, soon after reports surfaced that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) plans to hold a repeal vote even though it’s already clear he doesn’t have the votes to pass it.
“Republicans have promised to repeal Obamacare for years and now with President Trump in the White House, there is no excuse for them to break their promise,” Cuccinelli said.
“Working with the grassroots across the country, we will seek to identify, recruit, and fund conservative challengers against Republican senators who vote against repeal. If they won’t keep their word and if they can’t find the courage to repeal a liberal takeover of our health care system that has hurt so many American families, they should be replaced by someone who will.”
Any and all Republicans who have lied to the American people about their willingness to #RepealObamaCare must be held to account.
Update: Need more reasons for Shiva Ayyadurai and other pro-Trump reinforcements to go fight against the Swamp in the Swamp? Monday night big red letters on DrudgeReport headlined the news that the ObamaCare repeal and replace died a pathetic death. Um, good riddance.
It took the defection of two more GOP senators (Mike Lee, Jerry Moran) to make it clear to all that the Mitch McConnell/Paul Ryan schemes to pretend to repeal had succeeded to fail. The most unproductive congress in 164 years just hit Ryan bottom.
Are we sad, frustrated, giving up, or otherwise unhappy? Nope. We won’t mope. We’re actually kinda happy. The McConnell/Ryan pretend-to-repeal-and-don’t-really-replace legislative mess heralds what we always thought was the common sense proposal: Repeal ObamaCare first and foremost.
The McConnell/Ryan proposals were a big lie: Johnson’s grievance is with McConnell, who he claims assured senior GOP figures last week that Medicaid cuts planned by the legislation would ‘never happen’ because they were slated to come far in the future.
President Trump is now on board with what we advocated from the first: let ObamaCare collapse then force GOP do-nothings and the Obama Dimocrats to face political death. ‘More Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!’ he predicted. Mitch McConnell is now forced, and has agreed, to a repeal ObamaCare bill.
In 2015 the GOP House and Senate passed a bill to repeal ObamaCare which Obama vetoed. It will be illuminating to watch as the very senators and congressmen that voted for ObamaCare repeal in 2015 knowing Obama would veto any such law argue in 2017 that they cannot vote for the very same repeal in 2017 because President Donald J. Trump will sign such a law. This will be the best test on who must be culled from the herd.
If GOP senators and congressmen vote against ObamaCare repeal because now they know President Trump will sign such a law they need to be culled from the ranks of government workers via a primary challenge against them. Bring in Shiva!
In politics, don’t ever give up or get frustrated. There are many ways to get to your goals. Angry at the Obama Dims? Disgusted with the Republican do-nothing establishment that hates President Donald J. Trump? Don’t mope. Fight, fight, fight.
How to fight? Send President Donald J. Trump reinforcements. We mean reinforcements to help – not more GOP establishment blowhards that are “fake pro-Trump” and really hate President Trump and his agenda. So who? Who? Who?
Shiva Ayyadurai in Massachusetts is a strong President Donald J. Trump supporter. Shiva Ayyadurai also knows how to fight.
Shiva Ayyadurai is also further proof of the changes in the GOP since Obama destroyed the Democratic Party of FDR and turned it into a leftist lunacy. Soon after the November 2008 elections, before the 2010 election wipeout for Obama Dimocrats we noted that the GOP was increasingly the party of diversity. We noted how the GOP, unlike the Obama Dimocrats, had male and female Latino governors (Sandoval in Nevada and Susanna Martinez in New Mexico), Governors Nikki Haley in South Carolina and Bobby Jindal in Louisiana both of Indian subcontinent heritage, Latino Senators Cruz and Rubio, women senators along with black congressmen and a senator. It was all part of the monumental Mistake in ’08:
The obvious mistake that the massive “creative class” brains made when they created the Obama monster in a Chicago laboratory was that Republicans would remain static in their strategies and candidates. The stupidity was to think that Republicans would go to sleep and stick to an outdated playbook. Strategists such as Teixeira managed to persuade the gullible “leadership” that even though White Americans would remain a potent electoral force these White Americans could be ignored if they were “lunch bucket Joe and Jane”. In other words, the White Working Class would be ignored and instead wealthy white liberals and their kids would be the only ones invited to participate in the New America.
Warren takes early salvo from GOP hopeful: ‘A real Indian can defeat a fake Indian’
Mumbai-born entrepreneur: ‘I sent her a DNA test kit for her birthday’
Well that line of attack certainly is an eye opener! But can the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts be replicated in 2018? The polls look bad for Pocahontas so yeah. But who is this Shiva guy?
Entrepreneur Shiva Ayyadurai has thrown down a rhetorical gauntlet to critics of his plan to unseat Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2018: “Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian.”
Fox Business Network invited Cambridge’s start-up king on air Wednesday to discuss his realization of the American dream as an immigrant in 1970. Mr. Ayyadurai said that in addition to his seven successful companies and multiple degrees from MIT, his resume is poised to include the role of U.S. senator from Massachusetts.
“I’m looking forward to going against Warren,” Mr. Ayyadurai said. “I know how these elites work. I know I can defeat her.”
The tech-minded businessman, who holds a 1982 federal copyright called EMAIL, added that he was looking forward to the State Convention in April 2018 and the Republican primary election in September.
“In Massachusetts, 46 percent of Democrats have said that Elizabeth Warren should not run,” Mr. Ayyadurai added. “So there’s a significant opportunity here. For me, defeating Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts is driving a bigger blow to these institutions of power right in the belly of the beast.”
But the Mumbai-born entrepreneur (his family moved to the U.S. when he was seven) also went for the conservative punchline regarding Ms. Warren.
“I think only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian. I sent her a DNA test kit for her birthday and I was very sad she returned it. That’s the issue of a real Indian and a fake Indian, the truth, because there is a woman who actually checked off the box that she is Native American.”
Ms. Warren faced scrutiny in 2012 over disputed claims that she possesses Native American ancestry. She has been mocked by critics as “Pocahontas” and “Fauxcahontas.”
“I think it’s going to be a historic campaign. I think it’s going to reveal a lot of very, very important contradictions that are important for the American public to hear,” Mr. Ayyadurai said.
In Hinduism the god Shiva is one of the major deities. Shiva is the “destroyer and transformer” in Hinduism. Massachusetts might get a shiver from Shiva Ayyadurai and a political destroyer and transformer.
Shiva Ayyadurai is a strong supporter of President Donald J. Trump. Take a look. Send him a few dollars. Check out his website and fight #FakeIndian Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren. Check out Shiva Ayyadurai’s appearance with the tickled pink Stuart Varney:
According to a new WBUR poll of 508 Massachusetts voters, only 44 percent believe the Democratic firebrand, known for her outspoken critiques of President Donald Trump, “deserves reelection,” while 46 percent say voters should “give someone else a chance.”

President Donald J. Trump’s main goal is to Make America Great Again. To know how to Make America Great Again we have to understand where and when things went wrong. Bob Woodson of the Woodson Center recalls the civil rights battles of the 1960s and understands how the positive changes of those days have been turned into horror by obaminations such as Black Lives Matter. Here’s Bob Woodson on the Tucker Carlson show:
Black Lives Matter is part of a hypocritical race grievance industry, says Woodson. Inclusion not separation is what Woodson advocates. Black Lives Matter has “hijacked the movement”. The high black poverty rates of today is not a legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. Liberal academics made welfare a killer of the black community. The black family has been destroyed by liberal policies. Tell it brother!
Today President Trump begins his three week “made in America” focus on American jobs. President Trump will not only liberate the West. President Trump intends to Make America Great Again. President Trump needs everyone’s help to get the job done. President Trump needs the Bob Woodson and the Shiva Ayyadurai types as well as us to get the job of getting jobs done.
The best thing that can be “made in America” is to Make America Great Again.
Update: Power narrative. The great President Donald J. Trump is building a power narrative and taking little President of France Macron along. Think about all the roads that led to today. The American revolution in 1776 inspires the French revolution in 1789 which begins with the attack on the infamous imperial prison The Bastille. The Bastille is brought down by French revolutionaries so every year on July 14 the French commemorate Bastille Day the way we remember 1776.
Today is also the centennial marker for the day the United States entered “the great war” World War I. World War I was the most brutal war America has been in topping even the horror of the Civil War. World War I was really World War Part I and was continued by World War Part II. So there is President Donald J. Trump in Paris watching as for the first time ever American troops lead the Bastille Day parade.
Narrative building by President Donald J. Trump does not end there. As he did in Warsaw (see the main article below) President Donald J. Trump is in Paris at the biggest event in France on the day that marks the anniversary of the Muslim terror attack on Nice.
In one stunning historic moment President Donald J. Trump weaves together the historic paths America and the French people have traveled. Independence Day/Bastille Day. World War I/World War II. 9/11 Muslim Terror attacks/7-14 Nice Muslim Terror attacks. As he wove a narrative in Warsaw which echoed FDR and JFK, President Donald J. Trump wove a vast historic landscape in France today.
And the Trump triumph does not end there. With this visit President Donald J. Trump helps little French President Emmanuel Macron grow in stature. How? Well, the invitation to President Donald J. Trump from President Macron is a direct challenge to the German leadership of Europe and to the decayed Angela Merkel.
And still it does not end there. The fact that the French still assert their nationalist pride in the face of German government hostility to President Donald J. Trump brings to the fore the hopeless task the European Union’s attempt to end nationalism on the continent faces. Macron’s embrace of President Donald J. Trump is a slap in the face (dare we say “schlonging”) to Merkel and an assertion of leadership by the untested, untried, apprentice Macron.
A grateful Macron loves hisself some Trump (and once again Melania does America proud):
Sorry Big Media but President Donald J. Trump is très smart and knows how to woo other leaders without bowing to them.
We’ve been here before. A destructive regime in Asia which threatens world-wide peace, a religious/political force for evil seemingly in ascendance, a vast Eurasian power willing and able to play off competing powers to its own advantage, a central European power aided and abetted by other European powers bent on a twisted vision of world organization.
In the 1930s it was the Japanese Empire set on war, a pagan leftist cult in Germany which categorized humanity into either “Supermen” or “sub-human”, the Soviet Union which aligned itself via a treaty with the Nazi cult only to later align itself with the Allied Powers after the treaty opened the door to a deep invasion, it was also Germany in the 30s that dreamed of a thousand year Reich which found allies in states such as Italy.
In 2017 it is North Korea in Asia armed with nuclear bombs which threatens, political Islam which terrorizes a cowering world afraid they will soon be overwhelmed so they attempt appeasement of the religious cult, Russia playing off of weakness – aligning itself with political Islam and threatening Europe with cutoff of energy supplies in order to regain its lost hegemonic powers, and once again in central Europe there is Germany with it’s dreams of a Europe under it’s economic heel prepared to align itself with Islam and thereby destroy Europe once again.
In the 1930s the long mocked Winston Churchill came to the rescue of “Christian civilization” against the pagans and destructive forces whether in Asia, Africa, or Europe.
In 2017 it is the often mocked Donald J. Trump who is prepared to fight for the West.
Five-star American General Dwight David Eisenhower wrote Crusade In Europe – his memoirs of the liberation of Europe. Eisenhower’s Crusade was a military one with many political/economic/geographic considerations. For President Trump his Crusade In Europe is also part of a world-wide war that the left refuses to acknowledge.
In the 1930s many in the left also refused to acknowledge reality. Indeed, many in the right and the center refused to acknowledge reality. It took Pearl Harbor to shake the great American giant awake. In Europe the danger became reality much earlier – because Great Britain and the French controlled territories in the East and Africa and the threats from the East could not be ignored and the vulnerabilities in Africa were obvious to hungry invaders. But it was Poland that shook the continent awake. It was after Poland was attacked, invaded, devoured, that the world-wide war began.
This past week President Donald J. Trump went to Poland.
In a trumpet call of clarity President Donald J. Trump echoed President Kennedy who in 1963 spoke from Berlin:
There are many people in the world who really don’t understand, or say they don’t, what is the great issue between the free world and the Communist world. Let them come to Berlin. There are some who say that communism is the wave of the future. Let them come to Berlin. And there are some who say in Europe and elsewhere we can work with the Communists. Let them come to Berlin. And there are even a few who say that it is true that communism is an evil system, but it permits us to make economic progress. Lass’sie nach Berlin kommen. Let them come to Berlin.
“If there is anyone who still wonders why this war is being fought, let him look to Norway. If there is anyone who has any delusions that this war could have been averted, let him look to Norway; and if there is anyone who doubts the democratic will to win, again I say, let him look to Norway.”
It is a profound honor to stand in this city, by this monument to the Warsaw Uprising, and to address the Polish nation that so many generations have dreamed of: a Poland that is safe, strong, and free. (Applause.) [snip]
We are also pleased that former President Lech Walesa, so famous for leading the Solidarity Movement, has joined us today, also. (Applause.) [snip]
To the citizens of this great region, America is eager to expand our partnership with you. We welcome stronger ties of trade and commerce as you grow your economies. And we are committed to securing your access to alternate sources of energy, so Poland and its neighbors are never again held hostage to a single supplier of energy. (Applause.) [snip]
Poland is the geographic heart of Europe, but more importantly, in the Polish people, we see the soul of Europe. Your nation is great because your spirit is great and your spirit is strong. (Applause.)
For two centuries, Poland suffered constant and brutal attacks. But while Poland could be invaded and occupied, and its borders even erased from the map, it could never be erased from history or from your hearts. In those dark days, you have lost your land but you never lost your pride. (Applause.)
So it is with true admiration that I can say today, that from the farms and villages of your countryside to the cathedrals and squares of your great cities, Poland lives, Poland prospers, and Poland prevails. (Applause.)
Despite every effort to transform you, oppress you, or destroy you, you endured and overcame. [snip]
For America’s part, we have never given up on freedom and independence as the right and destiny of the Polish people, and we never, ever will. (Applause.) [snip]
And so I am here today not just to visit an old ally, but to hold it up as an example for others who seek freedom and who wish to summon the courage and the will to defend our civilization. (Applause.) The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken, and who have never, ever forgotten who they are. (Applause)
AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you so much. Such a great honor. This is a nation more than one thousand years old. Your borders were erased for more than a century and only restored just one century ago.
In 1920, in the Miracle of Vistula, Poland stopped the Soviet army bent on European conquest. (Applause.) Then, 19 years later in 1939, you were invaded yet again, this time by Nazi Germany from the west and the Soviet Union from the east. That’s trouble. That’s tough.
Under a double occupation the Polish people endured evils beyond description: the Katyn forest massacre, the occupations, the Holocaust, the Warsaw Ghetto and the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the destruction of this beautiful capital city, and the deaths of nearly one in five Polish people. A vibrant Jewish population — the largest in Europe — was reduced to almost nothing after the Nazis systematically murdered millions of Poland’s Jewish citizens, along with countless others, during that brutal occupation.
In the summer of 1944, the Nazi and Soviet armies were preparing for a terrible and bloody battle right here in Warsaw. Amid that hell on earth, the citizens of Poland rose up to defend their homeland. I am deeply honored to be joined on stage today by veterans and heroes of the Warsaw Uprising. (Applause.) [snip]
This monument reminds us that more than 150,000 Poles died during that desperate struggle to overthrow oppression.
From the other side of the river, the Soviet armed forces stopped and waited. They watched as the Nazis ruthlessly destroyed the city, viciously murdering men, women, and children. They tried to destroy this nation forever by shattering its will to survive.
But there is a courage and a strength deep in the Polish character that no one could destroy. The Polish martyr, Bishop Michael Kozal, said it well: “More horrifying than a defeat of arms is a collapse of the human spirit.”
Through four decades of communist rule, Poland and the other captive nations of Europe endured a brutal campaign to demolish freedom, your faith, your laws, your history, your identity — indeed the very essence of your culture and your humanity. Yet, through it all, you never lost that spirit. (Applause.) Your oppressors tried to break you, but Poland could not be broken. (Applause.)
And when the day came on June 2nd, 1979, and one million Poles gathered around Victory Square for their very first mass with their Polish Pope, that day, every communist in Warsaw must have known that their oppressive system would soon come crashing down. (Applause.) They must have known it at the exact moment during Pope John Paul II’s sermon when a million Polish men, women, and children suddenly raised their voices in a single prayer. A million Polish people did not ask for wealth. They did not ask for privilege. Instead, one million Poles sang three simple words: “We Want God.” (Applause.)
In those words, the Polish people recalled the promise of a better future. They found new courage to face down their oppressors, and they found the words to declare that Poland would be Poland once again.
As I stand here today before this incredible crowd, this faithful nation, we can still hear those voices that echo through history. Their message is as true today as ever. The people of Poland, the people of America, and the people of Europe still cry out “We want God.” (Applause.)
Together, with Pope John Paul II, the Poles reasserted their identity as a nation devoted to God. And with that powerful declaration of who you are, you came to understand what to do and how to live. You stood in solidarity against oppression, against a lawless secret police, against a cruel and wicked system that impoverished your cities and your souls. And you won. Poland prevailed. Poland will always prevail. (Applause.)
That trip through a memory lane of horrors was the preface to President Donald J. Trump’s grandest proposal of all, the liberation of the West:
This continent no longer confronts the specter of communism. But today we’re in the West, and we have to say there are dire threats to our security and to our way of life. You see what’s happening out there. They are threats. We will confront them. We will win. But they are threats. (Applause.)
AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!
PRESIDENT TRUMP: We are confronted by another oppressive ideology — one that seeks to export terrorism and extremism all around the globe. America and Europe have suffered one terror attack after another. We’re going to get it to stop. (Applause.) [snip]
We must stand united against these shared enemies to strip them of their territory and their funding, and their networks, and any form of ideological support that they may have. While we will always welcome new citizens who share our values and love our people, our borders will always be closed to terrorism and extremism of any kind. (Applause.)
AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!
PRESIDENT TRUMP: We are fighting hard against radical Islamic terrorism, and we will prevail. We cannot accept those who reject our values and who use hatred to justify violence against the innocent.
Today, the West is also confronted by the powers that seek to test our will, undermine our confidence, and challenge our interests. To meet new forms of aggression, including propaganda, financial crimes, and cyberwarfare, we must adapt our alliance to compete effectively in new ways and on all new battlefields.
We urge Russia to cease its destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere, and its support for hostile regimes — including Syria and Iran — and to instead join the community of responsible nations in our fight against common enemies and in defense of civilization itself. (Applause.)
President Donald J. Trump’s Crusade in Europe is not only a world-wide fight against ideologies and powers that threaten the West from outside. President Donald J. Trump made explicit that the fight to liberate the West must also be a fight against domestic enemies:
Finally, on both sides of the Atlantic, our citizens are confronted by yet another danger — one firmly within our control. This danger is invisible to some but familiar to the Poles: the steady creep of government bureaucracy that drains the vitality and wealth of the people. The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies.
Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to confront forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are. (Applause.) If left unchecked, these forces will undermine our courage, sap our spirit, and weaken our will to defend ourselves and our societies.
But just as our adversaries and enemies of the past learned here in Poland, we know that these forces, too, are doomed to fail if we want them to fail. And we do, indeed, want them to fail. (Applause.) They are doomed not only because our alliance is strong, our countries are resilient, and our power is unmatched. Through all of that, you have to say everything is true. Our adversaries, however, are doomed because we will never forget who we are. And if we don’t forget who are, we just can’t be beaten. Americans will never forget. The nations of Europe will never forget. We are the fastest and the greatest community. There is nothing like our community of nations. The world has never known anything like our community of nations.
We write symphonies. We pursue innovation. We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs, and always seek to explore and discover brand-new frontiers.
We reward brilliance. We strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honor God. We treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression. (Applause.)
We empower women as pillars of our society and of our success. We put faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, at the center of our lives. And we debate everything. We challenge everything. We seek to know everything so that we can better know ourselves. (Applause.)
And above all, we value the dignity of every human life, protect the rights of every person, and share the hope of every soul to live in freedom. That is who we are. Those are the priceless ties that bind us together as nations, as allies, and as a civilization.
What we have, what we inherited from our — and you know this better than anybody, and you see it today with this incredible group of people — what we’ve inherited from our ancestors has never existed to this extent before. And if we fail to preserve it, it will never, ever exist again. So we cannot fail.
This great community of nations has something else in common: In every one of them, it is the people, not the powerful, who have always formed the foundation of freedom and the cornerstone of our defense. The people have been that foundation here in Poland — as they were right here in Warsaw — and they were the foundation from the very, very beginning in America.
Our citizens did not win freedom together, did not survive horrors together, did not face down evil together, only to lose our freedom to a lack of pride and confidence in our values. We did not and we will not. We will never back down. [snip]
The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it? (Applause.)
That section of President Donald J. Trump’s speech echoed the Star Spangled Banner. “Oh say, does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave, over the land of the free and the home of the brave?” President Trump made the question a global one for the West: “Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”
For those that do not know the answer to those questions, President Trump says ‘look to Poland’:
We can have the largest economies and the most lethal weapons anywhere on Earth, but if we do not have strong families and strong values, then we will be weak and we will not survive. (Applause.) If anyone forgets the critical importance of these things, let them come to one country that never has. Let them come to Poland. (Applause.) [snip]
Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield — it begins with our minds, our wills, and our souls. Today, the ties that unite our civilization are no less vital, and demand no less defense, than that bare shred of land on which the hope of Poland once totally rested. Our freedom, our civilization, and our survival depend on these bonds of history, culture, and memory.
And today as ever, Poland is in our heart, and its people are in that fight. (Applause.) Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail. Our people will thrive. And our civilization will triumph. (Applause.)
AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you. So, together, let us all fight like the Poles — for family, for freedom, for country, and for God.
Thank you. God Bless You. God bless the Polish people. God bless our allies. And God bless the United States of America.
At that moment of liberation for Poland, when Soviet Communists fought to continue to force their totalitarian system of slavery on Poland, Ronald Reagan and the now sainted Pope John Paul II were partners. President Donald J. Trump does not have a partner in the Vatican. President Donald J. Trump has no partners in France, Germany, and even Great Britain is wobbly.
President Donald J. Trump has no partners in the Western Powers in his fight to save the West. His partners are mostly in the nations such as Poland which once were “captive nations” and nations under threat such as Israel. Fortunately, President Donald J. Trump has history and the truth on his side. Like Gideon, President Donald J. Trump is raised to liberate the West:
The West is under attack. Christians are under attack. Civility is under attack. Free thought and liberty are under attack by “hate speech” laws. The totalitarians are on the march just as in Winston Churchill’s day. Donald J. Trump was Churchill. Today President-Elect Donald J. Trump is a Gideon – raised to save the West.
On American Big Media the story is all about the little things. To American Big Media after the July 4 holiday and the return of the congress from vacation, the news is all about their hoped for collapse of the ObamaCare repeal efforts, a renewed effort to breathe life into the dead Russia story using Donald Trump Jr. as the latest in a long line of resuscitation efforts, foolish defenses of Comey’s latest lies and crimes, along with any story that demeans President Donald J. Trump. Imagine the British and American media in 1942 publishing endless attacks and “analysis” about Winston Churchill’s enjoyment of cigars and Scotch.
Already President Donald J. Trump has removed the energy threat America was exposed to during the Jimmy Carter presidency. President Donald J. Trump already has made America energy independent and further intends to make America energy DOMINANT, which will make Russia’s threats against Europe null and void.
President Donald J. Trump is set to not only Make America Great Again. Already the grander goal that President Donald J. Trump will achieve, despite Big Media and the degenerate political establishment of the West, is the salvation and liberation of the West. To that end, academia, the deep states, the establishments of the political parties, the corporate masters, the government bureaucrats, are all under threat.
That is what in 2017 we fight for. That’s what the fight is about. Much as Eisenhower sent Patton’s tanks through the fields of a defeated Europe, President Trump means to liberate Europe and the West.
Look at the fall of the Berlin Wall, look to valiant Norway, look to Poland. Look to America, the arsenal of Democracy. Look to the light that will save the West.
On July 4, 1776 the enemy of newborn America was a monarch across the sea who presumed to rule over a brave people nurtured on this land of freedom. On July 4, 2017 the enemy of the American republic and people is a royalist Big Media.
President Donald J. Trump understands Big Media in 2017 is no longer a device to transmit needed information to the people, as the founders envisioned. The founders wanted a free press to confound the enemies of the people and therefore enshrined in the Constitution protections for a free press.
In 2017 Big Media threatens a free press. Big Media is as we noted back in 2007 nothing but a functioning political party. Big Media is a special interest interested only in preserving its royal privileges and the lucre derived from their bastions of political power. Michael Goodwin thinks the media has broken down, but the fact is Big Media is now a political party that demands the perks and prerogatives of dictators.
President Donald J. Trump understands Big Media is a threat to the American republic. Big Media understands that President Donald J. Trump is a threat to Big Media. That’s is why there is a massive battle between duly elected President Donald J. Trump on the side of constitutional government, and the Big Media Party of special interests fighting to regain and preserve their special interests.
President Donald J. Trump understands that his fireside tweets go over the head of Big Media and address the American people directly. Big Media sees that threat which circumvents the courtiers and royalists and attempts to stop President Donald J. Trump from utilizing his powerful weaponry.
The Big Media Party wants President Trump to stop his fireside tweets so many reasons are devised to stop the tweets from firing at their encampments. President Donald J. Trump however is neither fool nor coward. So President Donald J. Trump tweets and tweets as the Big Media Party yelps and yelps.
The main line of attack from the Big Media Party to stop President Donald J. Trump is the claim that the presidential tweets are a “distraction” from the President’s agenda. This line of attack is transparently false as the last thing the Big Media Party wants is for President Donald J. Trump to succeed. Some GOP dolts not used to fighting or too stupid to realize they are being used by the Big Media Party will parrot the “distraction” line of attack. But supporters of President Donald J. Trump know this spurious “distraction” claim is a… distraction.
Supporters of President Donald J. Trump alongside President Donald J. Trump remember and know that one of the main reasons to elect President Donald J. Trump is because he is the only one able and willing to fight the Big Media Party royalists. Understand this: PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP’S ATTACKS AGAINST BIG MEDIA ARE NOT A DISTRACTION. PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP’S ATTACKS AGAINST BIG MEDIA ARE ONE OF THE KEY COMPONENTS OF HIS AGENDA – WHICH IS TO LIBERATE AMERICA FROM THE BIG MEDIA ROYALISTS!
We notice that every time some Big Media royalist or courtier employs the “distraction” line of attack they say that President Donald J. Trump’s agenda is tax cuts, health care, infrastructure spending, and more tax cuts. Always these courtiers in the royalist ballrooms forget that President Donald J. Trump was elected because he fought against the Big Media Party, and appeared to relish the fight.
Which brings us to Racist Morning Joe Scarborough and Mika the Ho.
The Big Media royalists may have conveniently forgotten, but we have not, the circumstances of how Joe Scarborough became Morning Joe and how Mika Brzezinski became Mika the Ho.
It started with Don Imus. Don Imus on his televised radio show “Imus In The Morning” called a black women’s basketball team from Rutgers University “nappy-headed hos”. The outrage forced Imus to apologize and eventually resulted in his firing.
At that point Joe Scarborough, the former Republican congressman, was temporarily assigned to fill in for the disgraced Don Imus on the leftist MSNBC. Afterwards “Imus In The Morning” was permanently replaced by “Morning Joe”. How did Joe Scarborough manage this show grabber?
As soon as Don Imus was removed as the MSNBC morning show host, Joe Scarborough moved in. Racist Joe long wanted a morning slot show. Don Imus was removed due to a widely assumed racist joke. So Joe Scarborough promised he would have a black co-host as a sort of reparations. Morning Joe declared a black co-host was needed to combat racism.
For a very short while Morning Joe had as a co-host John Ridley, an accomplished screenwriter. So short was Ridley’s co-hosting that it is not even mentioned on his Wikipedia page. John Ridley is black.
The new black co-host to replace John Ridley on Morning Joe, was Mika Brzezinski. Who the hell is Mika Brzezinski? Well, she’s the daughter of a failed Jimmy Carter government official. Brzezinski also had a claim to fame when she briefly became an Internet sensation last month for refusing to read a report about Paris Hilton leaving jail.
How did Mika Brzezinski manage to grab a position above the staff on Morning Joe when an accomplished black man was pushed out so quickly? It’s called being a Ho.
Mika Brzezinski got the job the old fashioned way. She ho’ed for it. Just as there are royalists and courtiers, there are courtesans. Courtesans are another way of saying “Ho”. Years of gossip about Mika the Ho and the married racist Joe Scarborough were confirmed this year when both announced they would hop into the bed they hopped into a long time ago, this time with a marriage license to make it all appropriate in the royalist court.
Let’s apply Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” #4 to Joe and his Ho. Rule 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” Southern right-wing congressman Joe Scarborough wanted a morning Joe talk show so he exploited a black man. Racist Joe promised to have a black co-host after racist Don Imus was removed, used John Ridley for a very short period of time, then his blond black woman Mika the Ho positioned herself underneath Racist Joe.
Of course, after Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who calls herself a black woman who inspired other women including a German woman with a tan to call herself black, anyone can be black these days, so why not Mika the Ho?
President Donald J. Trump knows all this. President Donald J. Trump is not afraid to call out the Hos and their bros. Perhaps the most important agenda item for President Donald J. Trump is destruction of the enemy of the American people, Big Media. So, President Donald J. Trump tweets and continues to win.
America's men & women in uniform is the story of FREEDOM overcoming OPPRESSION, the STRONG protecting the WEAK, & GOOD defeating EVIL! USA🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/Gu3f8DCO3o
President Donald J. Trump’s Twitter timeline is filled with lots of information. Attacks on Big Media are but a portion of the informative tweets. But those attacks on Big Media are the ones that most offend Big Media because those are the tweets that expose Big Media as the corrupt political party of special interests. These are not “distractions”. This is what matters. If there were no “tweets” there would be something else Big Media would use to attack President Trump.
It is all so delicious. Mercilessly inventive. Joyously vicious. Like an entire season of pro wrestling drama, all sewn up into two little Twitter messages.
The Trump presidency is a little like having a dog. Every day that passes, you love the dog more and more until it seems impossible to love her any more.
But — sadly — every day also brings that nagging dread that one day she will be gone, seven times sooner than she should. What will we do when it is all over? There will never be another dog like her (sad face).
Of course, the puritanical schoolmarms of the political press went absolutely bonkers over Mr. Trump’s broadside of their fellow travelers. They scolded him that his Twitter missives were beneath the office of the president.
Really, you mean like molesting an intern in the Oval Office? “Presidential” like that?
MSNBC — the afterthought cable channel that airs “Morning Joe” — responded on Twitter: “It’s a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job.”
But the funny thing about it is that nobody actually disproved anything that Mr. Trump alleged. Just like Russia and obstruction of justice and everything else, there is not one single shred of evidence that Mr. Trump is not 100 percent in the right.
“The Amazon Post” — the paper-of-record for Never Trumpers — rushed to the defense of Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough with a laughably illogical and twisted explanation.
“The notion that Brzezinski and Scarborough were desperate to hang out with Trump on New Year’s Eve but were rebuffed seems dubious, at best,” reporter Callum Borchers wrote on the paper’s website.
“For one thing, the New York Times spotted the co-hosts at Trump’s New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago.”
So, wait a minute? The proof that Mr. Trump is lying about Ms. Brzezinski and Mr. Scarborough slumming around Mar-a-Lago around New Year’s Eve is that — well — Ms. Brzezinski and Mr. Scarborough were slumming around Mar-a-Lago around New Year’s Eve?
Oof. Mr. Borchers probably learned this in journalism school. He should have gone to logic school instead.
But the correspondent was still not finished changing diapers for Ms. Brzezinski and Mr. Scarborough.
“For another,” Mr. Borchers writes, “Scarborough followed the report of their appearance [of Brzezinski and Scarborough slumming around Mar-a-Lago around New Year’s Eve] by angrily protesting any suggestion that he and Brzezinski were trying to cozy up to the president-elect.”
Let’s put this in terms the young reporter might understand: O-M-G.
Then Mr. Borchers goes on to accuse Mr. Trump of a “blatantly sexist attack” on Ms. Brzezinski because the president called her “unintelligent.”
Whoa! You mean that accusing someone of being “low I.Q.” is the equivalent of calling them female?
You might want to get a little “woke” to modern times.
Ms. Brzezinski (that would be she of “low I.Q.” and “crazy”), meanwhile, proved herself entirely worthy of Mr. Trump’s tirade by attacking the size of his manhood on Twitter.
I wish I were making that up, but that is what she did.
She posted a picture of a Cheerios box with a small child reaching a tiny finger out for a little toasted Cheerio. The box reads: “Made for Little Hands.”
Such classy people. And they have been a respected part of the establishment for years. Donald Trump just got here.
President Donald J. Trump is leading a revolution against our oppressors: Big Media. It’s a joy to behold. It’s a wonder to watch. We’ve never seen this before. Except for once before.
It was July 4, 1776. The founding fathers and mothers launched a revolution. We won. We’ll will again.
We’re hiding under our pink covered beds. If you’re not hiding like us, you are in trouble. We’ll explain why we should all be hiding at the end of this article even as we munch on and savor our deep dark Belgian chocolates and sip some Champagne.
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is letting the Trump administration enforce its 90-day ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries, overturning lower court orders that blocked it.
The action Monday is a victory for President Donald Trump in the biggest legal controversy of his young presidency.
Trump said last week that the ban would take effect 72 hours being cleared by courts.
The justices will hear arguments in the case in the fall.
The lower courts and their orders that overturned Constitutional government are the big losers on this one – right alongside their jihadist Muslim terrorist brethren. Trump wins bigly.
The Supreme Court will hear the case sometime in the fall, long after the Trump travel ban has expired. We fully expect that with this UNANIMOUS Supreme Court decision President Trump will win again (and again, and again) on immigration issues. Make America Safe Again!
The now-deleted story, by investigative reporter Thomas Frank, was published Thursday and cited a single, unnamed source who claimed that the Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration.”
But by Friday evening, the story had vanished from CNN’s website. It was not immediately clear when the story was removed, but a tweet linking to the story, from CNN’s Politics account, was also deleted sometime Friday evening.
A source close to the network, who requested anonymity to discuss the matter, told BuzzFeed News earlier that the story was a “massive, massive [f***] up and people will be disciplined.” The person said CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker and the head of the company’s human resources department are “directly involved” in an internal investigation examining how the story was handled.
Giggly bigly! Trump hating CNN gets schlonged and the Trump hating lowlifes at Buzzfeed are the ones that report President Trump’s bigly win!
In wake of story retraction, CNNMoney exec editor sends memo to staff mandating all "Russia-related content" must be cleared by him or VP pic.twitter.com/2Y6QMZj1h5
Ha! We’re under our beds giggling, munching those deep dark Belgian chocolates, and gulping down some of that Champs.
Big Media is not alone as President Trump schlongs them. President Trump is now, get this, schlonging that fey loser Barack Obama – ON RUSSIA!!!!
The Trump hating, Bezos owned, Obama lovin’ Washington Post provided President Trump the opportunity to schlong and schlong again. The Post reported on Friday that Barack Obama “choked” (that’s a Trump word) in his response to the Russian alleged interference in the 2016 elections. So now President Trump, alleges “COLLUSION” by Barack Obama with Russia:
The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win..
That’s a double schlong! President Trump not only turns the tables on the Big Media “collusion” narrative. President Trump declares that Obama purposefully “colluded” “obstructed”. Yeah, that Obama promise to the Russians, secretly captured by a hot microphone, that after the 2012 elections Obama would be more “flexible” (like a long time whore advertising the many positions his flexible body can contort into) fits right into the President Trump’s counterattack of today.
All this winning is why we’re hiding under our beds.
You should be hiding under your bed too (survival hint: take some dark Belgian chocolates and Champagne with you).
Consider this as to why you, like us, should be hiding under your beds: In our Hiroshima/Nagasaki article, we explained that the totalitarian left will never stop madly crazy attacking President Trump until their Hiroshima/Nagasaki moment arrives (which will be after the next elections at the earliest). In “Seven Days In June” we explained that the hysterical hair-on-fire naked fury crackpot all out frenzied leftist hatefest and lunatic asylum craziness against President Trump has not reached peak madness.
We are now concerned, and hiding under our beds, because it is very possible that we are about to witness full all out beyond description total insanity total hatred total zombie walking dead eat your intestines chew on your brains gouge out your eyes furious crackpot cray-cray! Yeah, Justice Antony Kennedy might retire this summer.
If Kennedy leaves, the totalitarian left will leave us all speechless and unable to describe with any measure, the level of their madness.
Hide under your beds. As the Trump victories pile up, the totalitarian left is about to explore the outer limits of madness. Hide. Bed. Chocolates. Champagne.
Update II: The consequences of the brilliant Trump win in GA6 continue to be felt. First, there are calls from Obama Dimocrats for Nancy Pelosi to leave the Obama Dimocrats’ House leadership top spot. As is usual, President Trump feigns tears and declares he wants Pelousy to stay as the face of the Obama Dimocrat Party. “It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down. I would be very disappointed if she did.”
Such is the devastation felt by Obama Dimocrats from the GA6 loss to Karen Handel/Trump that they have exhumed the carcass of Barack Obama. Yup, the kiss of death is back to remove more Obama Dimocrats out of careers in politics. Why anyone thinks Barack Obama will be of any help to win any seat is mystifying. Unlike President Trump who has the golden Midas touch, as every candidate he supports wins, Barack Obama has a record of Midas touch in reverse and every candidate Obama supports turns to sh*t (we warned Hillary about this but she would not listen to intelligent advice). In 2009 Obama campaigned against Scott Brown, Chris Christie, and Bob McDonald.
The GA6 Trump victory has also unhinged Hollyweird has-been stars. Faded actor Johnny Depp continued down the path of assassination threats against President Trump. That’s all these weirdos have left. The left only has weirdos and assassination threats left to salve their GA6 wound. Depp reminded an overseas audience that an actor shot a president and it’s about time for a repeat performance. Depp continues in the jihad of Kathy Griffin, Snoop Dogg, Mickey Rourke, Larry Wilmore, George Lopez, Marilyn Manson, Mad-donna, Robert De Niro, the NY Public Theater, and Moby.
These weirdoes don’t understand that the “normals” are repulsed by them and therefore run to the ballot box to vote in support of President Trump. Keep up the Get Out The Vote efforts on behalf of Trump, dumbasses.
Golden Midas touch President Trump will continue to win, as he did in GA6, which drives his enemies into madness.
Update: Trump. Iowa. Rally. Does President Trump go after North Korea for their vile murder of Otto Warmbier? Does President Trump remind America of the leftist thug that shot GOP congressmen at a baseball practice? Does President Trump gloat over GA6? Does President Trump focus on tech and the federal government (and point out that the reason so much federal government tech is out of date by decades is that federal bureaucrats don’t like up to date computer software is because the bureaucrats make themselves indispensable and protect their jobs when only they understand the out of date mess they manage)? We think President Trump should imitate or update Jackie Gleason “how sweeeeeet it is!”
The cheers at the Karen Handel victory party thundered “Trump! Trump! Trump! Trump”.
Yeah, it was Trump who dun-did it. Trump won the Georgia 6 district in 2016 with a trim and slim 1.5 percent. Handel again won the district despite all the Big Media/Obama Dimocrat crap polls, projections, pundits, and wishcasting. So much for the “It’s over for Trump tripe.”
Why? Why did Obama Dimocrats flush over $30 million in the Handel v. Tossoff race? It wasn’t stupidity. It was a calculation. Obama Dimocrats figured they couldn’t lose.
The Georgia 6th district race was not about the not very good candidate Karen Handel. Obama Dimocrats didn’t even really care about the voters of the Georgia 6th. Their candidate did not even live in the district. Their candidate ran in the primary by declaring “Make Trump Furious”. In the general election the Obama Dimocrat candidate ran almost as a Trump supporter in order to get votes. The Obama Dimocrats had bigger fish to fry other than the voters they despise.
The Obama Dimocrats targeted their $31 million terror campaign against the RINOs and the WHINOs.
The goal of the Obama Dimocrats was to separate President Trump from the GOP RINOs and whiners. The GOP RINOs and whiners (hereinafter WHINOs) wanted an excuse to run away from President Trump. The Obama Dimocrats know that the GOP establishment would like an excuse to run away from President Trump. So, the Obama Dimocrats calculated that if they spent tens of millions to defeat President Trump in a district he barely won, the GOP RINOs and WHINOs would stampede away from President Trump in pretend fear of losing their elections.
Obama Dimocrats did not count on President Trump trumping. Obama Dimocrats thought that President Trump would avoid mention of the GA6 race because President Trump would never want to get involved in a race that had everything against him. Obama Dimocrats had tens of millions, a young male candidate to attack a not so young woman, enthusiasm from the Obama Dimocrat left as well as the Bernie Sanders Socialist left, and Big Media and the rest of the party were all in to defeat the hapless Karen Handel who barely came in first in the crowded GOP primary.
Then, Trump tweeted and triumphed.
Once Again, against the polls, Big Media, the GOP establishment, the Deep State, the Obama Dimocrat big dollar donors, leftist thugs, assassins, pajama boys, NeverTrumpers, and everyone who did not vote for candidate Trump in November 2016 – Trump triumphed.
Lessons? This election was essentially meaningless. The goal was to separate the GOP leadership, RINOs and WHINOs from President Trump and that has once again failed because Trump voters love to Trump! Trump! Trump! The only lasting lesson from this election we can think of is one we wrote about years ago.
All that “misogyny” talk? The Obama Dimocrats ran a “male” pajama boi against a woman yet again. The misogynists continue to run men against women in the Obama Dimocrat party.
The big lesson for Obama Dimocrats is that if they can’t win in a district with lots of “high education” voters that don’t love President Trump even after they spend tens of millions of dollars to get a victory, they won’t win. As we are fond of constantly reminding our readers, election 2018 and 2020 will be reruns of election 2016. If Trump voters stick with President Trump then the GOP leadership has to stick with President Trump and the 2016 elections are a rerun. Obama Dimocrats can’t get the voters they disparage daily.
It was yet another special election loss for Obama Dimocrats in the Age Of Trump. All the pretend reasons for flushing tens of millions of dollars down the drain went down the drain:
Democrats hope an Ossoff victory could deal a blow to Trump’s presidency and the GOP agenda, while giving other candidates a path to flipping more conservative strongholds. Republicans see a Handel win as a chance to bolster incumbents in competitive districts who are nervous about allying with Trump. [snip]
Ossoff is still expected to have the edge, but just how wide the margin is could determine the race. [snip]
The Trump factor:
By now, the dynamics are familiar to any 6th District voter: Trump barely carried the district in November, and his approval ratings are weak across the area, giving Democrats hope they can flip the district.
Ossoff launched his campaign with tough anti-Trump talk but has emphasized a more moderate message; Handel embraced Trump and his top priorities while saying she won’t be an “extension” of his White House.
Just how much will Trump factor into the outcome? The president has sent a flurry of tweets and robocalls supporting Handel’s campaign. But she’s also allied with other GOP leaders, including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.
Ossoff has tried to hone in on Republicans frustrated with Trump. Mailers vow he’ll “stand up” to the president while he talks of how both parties are “complicit” in wasteful spending.
The reason for the dual-track messaging: He needs at least 10 percent, perhaps as much as 15 percent, of GOP voters to back him. And if he doesn’t win over enough GOP support, he might be in for a long night.
Ossoff’s Georgia Special Election Loss to GOP’s Handel Exposes Deep Fissures in the Democratic Party in the Trump Era
Democrats continued their special election losing streak on Tuesday as one of the party’s bright hopes, Jon Ossoff, lost his bid for a suburban Atlanta Congressional seat long held by Republicans—a painful defeat that highlights deep fissures in the party.
Democrats have lost every special Congressional election since President Donald Trump took office. In addition to the Georgia race, the party failed to pick up seats vacated by Republican House members who joined the Trump cabinet in Kansas, Montana and South Carolina, although they ran far ahead of their usual numbers.
The seat in Georgia was a tantalizing one for Democrats. Hillary Clinton only lost the district by 1 percent in the 2016 presidential race, and when Trump tapped Representative Tom Price to be his Health and Human Services Secretary, Democrats hoped they could win this seat for the first time since the 1970s. [snip]
But Ossoff’s centrism alienated some progressives. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders eventually endorsed him, but only after publicly questioning whether he was a true progressive. And some on the left never cottoned to a Democrat who stressed his fiscal conservatism. In the end, Ossoff lost the seat by six points, more than the margin in Tuesday’s congressional race in South Carolina to replace Mick Mulvaney, now Trump’s budget director. (Archie Parnell, a little known tax expert was defeated by GOP veteran Ralph Norman). [snip]
The basic schism in the party—should it be more progressive—is now even more apparent now that Democrats have failed to pick up Price’s seat in Georgia. [snip]
But for now, Republicans in Congress are increasingly confident they can survive—and maybe even thrive—in the Trump era.
It’s the leftist totalitarian kooks versus the far far far left socialist totalitarian kooks. That’s why in South Carolina and Georgia the GOP won.
Republicans may see holding the seat as one sign that Trump’s agenda and lack of popularity may not be as damaging for the party as Democrats hope. Separately on Tuesday, Republican Ralph Norman avoided an upset by winning a special election in South Carolina’s 5th District, a seat vacated by Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney.
Speaking after her win, Handel said her first priorities in Congress will be finishing the GOP health-care bill and working to lower corporate and individual tax rates. [snip]
Underscoring the national attention on the race, Trump repeatedly chimed in on it multiple times leading up to the results.
In a Tuesday tweet that started with “KAREN HANDEL FOR CONGRESS,” Trump said she would “fight for lower taxes, great healthcare” and “strong security.”
As Handel won Tuesday, Trump tweeted that Handel did a “fantastic job” and said “we are all very proud of you.”
He later issued a comment on the overall result in both races that lauded a 5 -0 record in congressional races since his election.
Handel also thanked the president in her victory speech, prompting chants of “Trump!” from supporters.
Hey, just a thought here, but, um, maybe President Trump is not as “unpopular” as Big Media repeatedly asserts after every Trump triumph!
Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O! All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0
Foolish, idiotic, dangerous, delusions continue to permeate the thinking of some President Donald J. Trump supporters (hello Conservative Treehouse). At the White House, other than from President Trump himself, paralysis and leaks are in vogue. Today, we expose the dangerous delusions and issue a call for corrective action from the White House.
As we recall how two years ago today, this website watched in awe, as the next President announced his run for president we remain in awe of the strength exhibited by the President every day. Today the same toughness that amazed us on June 16, 2015, is once again on display. Today President Donald J. Trump continues to dismantle the Obama legacy sh*thouse by sh*thouse. Also today, our analysis (see, Hiroshima/Nagasaki and More Special Prosecutors please), has been proven prescient and correct. Today, we have to take allies to the woodshed, give advice to one and all, and of course, gloat.
* * * * * *
The danger. Because of the shooting of House GOP Whip Steve Scalise some Trump supporters delude themselves that maybe the leftist thugs will soften their “resistance” and stop their assassination dreams against President Trump. This belief that the left will relent is as we have stated before, a very dangerous delusion.
Before we critique the dangerously deluded, let’s fully explain what the left sees in the wake of the shooting of Steve Scalise. The left sees success. The left sees “Hope and change”. The left sees their anime dreams of assassination, political or somatic, about to be realized.
The only aspect of the Steve Scalise shooting the left regrets is that the leftist thug assassin did not accomplish his mission. To all those foolish, idiotic, dangerous dwellers in delusion, who have Pollyanna mindsets, get this through your thick heads: The left believes the shooting of Steve Scalise shows the way back to power and that the only problem with the plan was that only Steve Scalise was effectively neutralized, not the two dozen that would put Obama Dimocrats in charge.
After the attack, the office of Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) received an email reading “One down, 216 to go”. Congressman Tom Garrett (R-Va.) needed security after receiving threats reading, “This is how we’re going to kill your wife”. Other threats described graphic atrocities against his daughters and even his dog.
For the present everyone on the left, right, and center, should understand that the leftist Obama Dimocrat insanity will continue unabated. Indeed, our diagnosis indicates that the fever swamps will only continue to grow, the madness will be ever more stark, and that we have not yet witnessed the Obama Dimocrat peak crazy. [snip]
Some on the right foolishly and mistakenly believe the madness will break during the Supreme Court confirmation fight for soon-to-be Justice Gorsuch. Some on the right, not understanding Obama Dimocrats, foolishly don’t understand the political battle as they concoct wild theories about why the filibuster won’t be deployed against soon-to-be Justice Gorsuch. These are dangerous delusions. The left is not even near full madness.
The hysteria, I admit, has gone on far longer, and has been far more virulent, than I anticipated. I thought the insanity would dissipate quickly after January 20, when Donald Trump was inaugurated. Instead, it has accelerated, abetted by a scurrilous and irresponsible media and grandstanding Democratic politicians encouraged by their deep-state enablers. [snip]
I fully expect there will be additional arctic blasts from the media-engineered campaign against Trump. Doubtless many of the blasts will come from James Comey’s very good personal friend (“brothers in arms”) Robert Mueller, recently appointed special counsel to investigate allegations of Russian involvement in the 2016 election. It’s conceivable that Mueller will be forced to recuse himself, but in the meantime, he is busy packing his investigative staff with Obama and Clinton loyalists. [snip]
Moreover, as Conrad Black argues in The National Interest, Trump is actually winning the war on Washington. His greatest problem, Black points out, is not “spurious charges or media hostility . . . but the cowardice of congressional Republicans.”
We don’t think it is “cowardice” on the part of Republicans. It is treachery. The treachery of the swamp.
Kimball has other smart observations that make up for his initial error in thinking the kooks of the left would take their Thorazine and chill out. Kimball is correct that President Trump wins by getting things done:
Success has a way of blotting out or at least marginalizing criticism. As Trump forges ahead, quietly racking up victory after victory, the yapping chihuahuas are going to appear more and more absurd to the public. Those pups are yapping, but as the old Arab mot puts it, the caravan is nevertheless traveling on. Forecast: 10% chance of crisis, 90% chance of sun.
That is exactly what President Trump is doing and the examples from today are many. Obama’s Cuba legacy is removed. Obama’s DAPA legacy is destroyed. ObamaCare is about to be destroyed. Obama’s lead from his behind policies which hurt America are likewise being destroyed.
Sadly, at the Conservative Treehouse, instead of intelligent analysis, we see dangerous delusions take hold.
Conservative Treehouse dreamed up some silly scenario, so bizarre that you can read and reread it and it still can’t be understood, not even by the initial commentors, about why Neil Gorsuch was a shoe-in and no filibuster would be deployed by Chuck Schumer. The “rationale” for such a bizarre conclusion was too silly to even explain in any reality-based way. The Conservative Treehouse “analysis”: “Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will not filibuster the nomination. Relax, it’s 100%. 100%. Done.”
That Treehouse analysis is nutty as a squirrel’s sac. It did not get any better after Chuck Schumer confirmed that indeed, as we predicted, there will be a filibuster. After delusional theory #1 exploded, the Treehouse churned up some more nutty butter to spread which made as little sense as their first flub. It was something about Russians and… well… this latest theory was again too silly to give serious consideration to.
We explained back then to the Treehouse that for the leftist kooks stopping Gorsuch was THE fight. It wasn’t the next fight. The left understood that once Gorsuch was on the court the power to intimidate or collude with certain Republicans (hello McCain, Collins, Graham, Murkowski, Flake, Sasse, etc.) would be gone. For the left the analysis was that Gorsuch had to be stopped at all costs and that defeat of Trump on the Gorsuch nomination (to neatly supplement the House failure on ObamaCare) meant the left was in control, not the electorate or Trump. A defeat on Gorsuch would have meant that President Trump would have to get permission from the Obama Dimocrats for every Supreme Court nomination and indeed every nomination. For the Treehouse, the next fight was the big one. We pointed out the errors of that foolishness. In this case the leftist kooks, who constantly require judicial overreach to rule, had the correct analysis/strategy/tactics and the Treehouse was chock full o’ nuts.
Now the Conservative Treehouse is at it again. This time the delusions are more dangerous. This time the delusion is that Special Counsel Mueller and his Obama Dimocrat prosecutors are working alongside Deputy AG Rosenstein to clear President Trump of all charges!!! This is delusion! This is madness! This is all out nuts and dangerous to President Trump.
Many people are operating on emotion and absorbing “clickbait” article angst.
Mueller couldn’t hire a team of rabidly political republican type investigators. What would that do to the effectiveness of the outcome? Think about it.
Mueller couldn’t NOT look at obstruction. Think about it.
President Trump and the circle of advisers, including AG Sessions, did nothing wrong in this entire ‘muh Russia’ nonsense exercise. Stay calm and carry on – MAGA.
‘Stay calm and carry on as if Special Counsel Mueller is not a mortal threat or a dangerous distraction’ says the Treehouse. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is dangerous analysis akin to the crackpottery about Neil Gorsuch (not to mention the Treehouse hostility to the Citizens United Supreme Court decision) via the Treehouse.
The Conservative Treehouse theories are wacky and dangerous. If President Trump listened to that type of advice he would be out on the street selling apples and clinking a tin cup. Somehow, the Conservative Treehouse believes that: James Comey is all evil and a mastermind who is terrified of Special Counsel Mueller because Mueller will expose Comey; Mueller is some sort of hero out to trap his long time friend Comey (the guy Mueller worked with on the Ashcroft mugging) in order to help President Trump and that indeed all those Obama Dimocrats Mueller has hired are hired to gull Comey and the Obama Dimocrats because hey, won’t those Obama Dimocrats be surprised when Obama Dimocrat prosecutors who worked for the Clinton Foundation and donated money to Hillary Clinton’s campaigns and other Obama Dimocrat campaigns exonerate President Trump; and yeah, President Trump is playing games and pretending to be upset with the Special Counsel because he somehow is in on a plot of collusion with Special Prosecutor Mueller and President Trump knows that Mueller will exonerate him but President Trump has to pretend to be upset so that his exoneration announcement by Mueller will be even more glorious when it comes on that glorious day; Vice President Pence hiring private lawyers to defend himself against the Special Counsel is somehow part of the plot to defeat Obama Dimocrats by hiring Obama Dimocrats; likewise hiring Jay Sekulow to waste his valuable time he could be spending on other issues is part of the collusion plot by Trump/Mueller; oh, and, um, believe it or not Mueller is not really investigating President Trump because Mueller’s real target is his long time friend and collaborator James Comey; all these collusions and camouflage ruses have entirely fooled and sent down the wrong path not only this website but Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, and Lou Dobbs.
If Conservative Treehouse is to be believed than President Donald J. Trump is a dunce for writing this today:
I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt
The man that wrote the memo to President Trump which provided the many reasons to fire the FBI Director James Comey, is none other than Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. And guess what Ladies and Gentlemen, Rosenstein might be recusing himself:
The senior Justice Department official with ultimate authority over the special counsel’s probe of Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election has privately acknowledged to colleagues that he may have to recuse himself from the matter, which he took charge of only after Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ own recusal, sources tell ABC News. [snip]
Rosenstein, who authored an extensive and publicly-released memorandum recommending Comey’s firing, raised the possibility of his recusal during a recent meeting with Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, the Justice Department’s new third-in-command, according to sources. [snip]
In the recent meeting with Brand, Rosenstein told her that if he were to recuse himself, she would have to step in and take over those responsibilities. She was sworn-in little more than a month ago. [snip]
Rosenstein is keenly aware that, he could become a potential witness in the investigation. [snip]
Rep. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, asked Rosenstein specifically whether he might have a conflict of interest if he becomes a witness in the investigation.
“I’m not going to answer hypothetical questions,” Rosenstein said. “[But] I am working with career professionals who know these rules and are responsible for enforcing these rules, and I can assure you that we’re going to do the right thing, and we’re going to defend the integrity of that investigation.” [snip]
But inside his office in recent days, the deputy attorney general has been grappling with what to do about the expanding probe, and seething over news accounts laying out some of its details, according to one source.
Late last night, he issued what many online are calling a “bizarre” statement, condemning recent reports.
“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true and stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,'” Rosenstein said. “Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.”
Our assignment to the writers and readers of the Conservative Treehouse is to watch a certain movie. We understand we might be wrong or right and as unlikely and contrary to reality as it is there is a one in a trillion chance that Conservative Treehouse is correct. But we strongly believe that the Conservative Treehouse must be made to understand that their position on Special Counsel Mueller is both delusional and dangerous. Dangerous because of, as the Kirk Douglas character “Jiggs” states in Seven Days In May, the political thriller about a military takeover of the government, “…possibilities, what we call, uh “capabilities” in military intelligence…”:
President Jordan Lyman: All right, Colonel. Let’s sum it up, shall we? You’re suggesting what?
Colonel Martin “Jiggs” Casey: I’m not sure, Mr. President: just some possibilities, what we call, uh “capabilities” in military intelligence…
President Jordan Lyman: You got something against the English language, Colonel?
Colonel Martin “Jiggs” Casey: No, sir.
President Jordan Lyman: Then speak it plainly, if you will.
Colonel Martin “Jiggs” Casey: I’m suggesting, Mr. President, there’s a military plot to take over the government. This may occur some time this coming Sunday.
The “possibilities” the “capabilities” of Special Counsel Mueller is a danger, but the Conservative Treehouse poses a greater danger with the “close your eyes, nothing to worry about, it’s all in the bag” talk. The Conservative Treehouse, as in the Gorsuch nomination fight, is dangerously, malignantly, willfully, blind to the um, possibilities, the “capabilities” of a hostile Special Counsel Mueller. Wake up Conservative Treehouse and smell the treachery. All hands are required to fight off Mueller.
Senator Raymond Clark: All you’ve got to know is this: right now the government of the United States is sitting on top of the Washington Monument, right on the very point, tilting right and left and ready to fall off and break up on the pavement. There are just a handful of men that can prevent it. And you’re one of them.
It’s not the military, it’s the Deep State stupid.
Doug Wead: We have very skilled, talented professionals. They’ve overthrown governments in Vietnam and the Philippines, in Iraq and Iran, in Egypt, in the Ukraine. Duly elected democratic governments. They created what they called “popular uprisings.”
What did we expect? That’s there skill set. These people who work some of them in the State Department, some of them in intelligence, some of them in the media. They’ve worked together to overthrow other governments. So it was inevitable they would use the gun on ourselves. So here they go, let’s see if we can do this in America. It looks Like a coup d’état. I don’t know how else you would explain it.
President Trump knows how to explain it:
You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA
On May 17 we began a list of Special Prosecutors we think should be appointed. We came up with over 20 special prosecutors that need to investigate a whole bunch of things. Things like a special prosecutor to investigate the special prosecutor and how Comey got him appointed, Loretta Lynch, corruption of the FISA courts, the unmasking scandals, more Loretta Lynch prosecutors after Comey said she corrupted the FBI and turned it into a Clinton campaign operation, illegal surveillance of congress and the Supreme Court, lots and lots of things.
It’s good to see Lou Dobbs agrees with us.
President Trump should appoint a special prosecutor to investigate whether or not James Comey told the truth about Loretta Lynch and her turning the FBI into a Clinton campaign operation and also to find out what the meeting with Bill Clinton was all about. That should relieve Mueller of too much work which will take too much time.
President Trump should appoint a special prosecutor to investigate who and why did all that “unmasking” of American citizens caught up in NSA spying.
A special prosectutor to investigate the Comey self-confessed leak as well as the many other leaks he is suspected of perpetrating.
President Trump should appoint a special prosecutor to investigate who/what/when/where/why is doing all the leaking – even from the Mueller office.
We need lots and lots of special prosecutors NOW! The more special prosectutors the better. The more special prosecutors the less time Mueller will have to consume in his investigations – and the sooner Mueller might be in a cell alongside Comey.
Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday appeared to link the shooting at a congressional baseball practice that injured at least five to the controversial production of “Julius Caesar” in which the slain Roman dictator was outfitted in a way that resembled President Trump.
Following the shooting Wednesday morning, President Trump’s son retweeted a comment from CNN and Fox News contributor Harlan Hill, who drew a straight line from “events like today” to “glorifying the assassination” of the president in a theatrical production.
A gunman in Alexandria, Va., fired scores of rounds at Republican lawmakers and aides who were practicing before the bipartisan Congressional Baseball Game, which was set to take place on Thursday.
GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise (La.), an aide to Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas) and others were wounded, according to multiple reports.
The tweet refers to the Public Theater’s New York current run of “Julius Caesar.” The actor playing Caesar is intended to resemble Trump with blondish hair, a two-piece suit with a long tie and an American flag pin.
The president’s son is among those who have questioned if art that is turned into “political speech” could affect its taxpayer funding after the Shakespeare in the park production.
The play followed on the heels of the public outcry when comedian Kathy Griffin posed in a photo shoot where she held a fake, bloody severed head that resembled Trump.
Scalise is undergoing surgery after being shot and he is said to be in stable condition, according to his office.
The leftist thug has been sent, via express bullet train, straight to Hell. The death of this leftist thug means one less vote for his idol Bernie Sanders the socialist kook. Also this leftist’s trip to Hell means one less “superfan” of Rachel Maddow.
There are a lot of details. It was the security detail of Steve Scalise that returned fire on the leftist thug. If not for the fact that Steve Scalise is a member of the GOP leadership and therefore has a security detail, the leftist thug would have been in a free fire zone able to kill Republican congressional members and staff at will:
Scalise and several others were injured, but it could’ve been far worse, the senator — who was there — said. [snip]
But according to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who was there, it could have been far, far worse. Had Capitol Police not been there as part of a security detail for Scalise, Paul said in an interview with MSNBC, “it would’ve been a massacre.”
Paul explained that after the gunman fired 50 to 60 shots, hitting Scalise and others, he was eventually taken down by Capitol Police. But, he pointed out, those Capitol Police officers were only there in such force because Scalise himself — as Majority Whip, he is a member of the Republican leadership team who travels with a security detail — was present.
“Everybody probably would’ve died except for the fact that the Capitol Hill Police were there, and the only reason they were there is because we had a member of leadership on our team,” Paul said. “If Scalise wouldn’t have been on the team — unfortunately he was hit and I hope he does well — but also by him being there it probably saved everyone else’s life, because if you don’t have a leadership person there, it would’ve been no security there.”
He continued: “Because there’s no escaping a guy with — if he’s got several hundred bullets, and we had no weapons, and no place to hide. So if he would’ve advanced on the rest of us, there would’ve been no chance. The only chance we had was that the shots were returned by the Capitol Hill Police.”
Time to get armed in D.C. if you are a Trump supporter. Time to get armed in college if you are a Trump supporter too. Time to get armed everywhere in America if you are a Trump supporter. Think we exaggerate or overreact? Not with these animals on the loose:
Left-Wing Twitter Celebrates Shooting of Rep. Scalise
No sooner did news break that a gunman shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) were left-wing Twitter users celebrating the attack — in which two Capitol Police were also shot, as well as a congressional staffer, and possibly more.
Activist and media personality, Tariq Nasheed, appeared to indicate support for the shooting on Twitter: [snip]
Author Malcom Harris, “joked”(?) that the shooter may have simply been acting in self-defense: [snip]
Twitter user “Leon Trotsky” wrote that Scalise’s shooting was “karma” for his “tea bag” beliefs: [snip]
Twitter user “Charles Oakley” wrote that “the KKK fucker deserved it”: [snip]
Technology writer WaltIsFrozen said the attack will have a “silver lining” if the shooter was indeed targeting Republicans specifically: [snip]
“RestlessNews” created a meme that suggested the attack is the definition of “karma”: [snip]
Other left-wing Twitter users said they hoped this shooting would encourage Scalise to rethink his support for gun rights — as he’s a “whore” for the NRA: [snip]
Others tried to use the atrocity as an excuse to make jokes about health-care reform: [snip]
Others suggested the Scalise shooting was justified owing to the congressman’s beliefs: [snip]
UPDATE: The shooter, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, appears to be a Bernie Sanders fan. His Facebook page reads, “Democratic Socialism in Three Words: ‘We the People.'”
One of his most recent posts says, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.” [sic]
“I want Bernie to Win the White House.” he wrote Aug. 12th, 2016.
Today is not “send a leftist thug to Hell” day. Today is Flag Day. Today is President Donald J. Trump’s birthday.
President Trump received an early birthday gift when this week his wife Melania and young son of 11 years Barron Trump moved to the White House now that young Barron has finished his school year.
We wish President Donald J. Trump a very happy birthday and a healthy and long life well past the next eight years he will live in the White House.
Today is also Flag Day. The “President’s Own” The Marine Band is a happy confluence of the birthday and Flag Day as they play “Stars and Stripes Forever”.
Hear that leftist thugs?
As to the American flag itself, the symbolism is appropriate and lifts the patriotic heart. In addition the American flag has a lovely design – it is a lovely flag. There are other flags that are nice looking, but the American flag has a certain oomph to it. That deep blue field with the glow of stars on it, the stripes of alternating red and white which while resting colorfully grabs the attention with it’s dignity.
The American flag when in movement, when the wind catches it…
It’s a grand ol’ flag. It’s a high flying flag.
Forever in peace may it wave. It’s a emblem of, the land… the home of the free and the brave.
Make the F.B.I. great again – arrest, prosecute, imprison James Comey. If Special Counsel Mueller does not immediately raid the homes and offices of James Comey and his partner in crime Daniel Richman (who has now fled the scene of the crime[s] in order to avoid interrogation by the authorities), to seize computers and other materials pertinent to his investigation, then Robert Mueller himself deserves to be investigated by a special prosecutor. Robert Mueller has a decision to make: stand by the law or by his long time pal the corrupt James Comey.
When Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel we celebrated. We celebrated because the more Swamp Deep State players come forth to attack President Trump openly, not from the shadows, the easier it will be to take down the Deep State “resistance” to a duly elected President. We wrote, “The more the political establishment swamp tries to destroy President Trump however, the closer they are to their own destruction.” This prediction is comeying truer and truer.
At the time we also declared, “We’re gonna need a special prosecutor to investigate the special prosecutor.” Ain’t that the truth!
We were wrong about one particular detail. We thought the leaker of the Comey memo was Comey crony Benjamin Wittes. We were wrong in that particular instance but Robert Mueller should question Wittes under oath (and seize his computers) to determine if Wittes conspired to leak on behalf of Comey previously.
Because of his self-confession we now know the illegal leaker was Former F.B.I. Director James Comey himself using a cutout crony from Columbia. What Comey confirmed is the extent of Deep State corruption and that we face an attempted coup by the Obama Dimocrat and GOP establishment Deep State against a duly elected President. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich strikes all the necessary warnings about why we believe Special Counsel Mueller is a crony creep of clown Comey:
The most startling revelation from fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony this week was his barefaced admission that he intentionally leaked details of his private conversations with the president to the press in an effort to prompt the appointment a special counsel.
When asked Thursday by Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine whether he shared the memos he wrote about his conversations with President Trump with anyone outside the Department of Justice, Comey answered:
“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter – didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons – but I asked him to, because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”
This statement is tremendously important because it completely delegitimizes Robert Mueller’s so-called independent investigation and reveals it as poisoned fruit.
Poisoned fruit of corruption. Robert Mueller must either prove himself via a raid of Comey’s hideouts and computers, as well as the deep holes of his crony friends and computers, or Robert Mueller himself must be viewed as corrupt.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed though the efforts of James Comey. James Comey wanted to interfere in the ongoing investigations by Congress and the F.B.I. So James Comey corruptly interfered with the investigations and thereby violated the law which prohibits interference with government investigations. Corruption. Jeff Sessions must intervene and demand the resignation of Robert Mueller and prosecution of Mueller and his leaker employment office pal James Comey.
Think about it: Comey was the top law enforcement officer in the nation before he was fired on May 9. Had he felt a special counsel was necessary to investigate possible Russian influence in the 2016 election, he could have requested one from Congress at any time. If he felt his conversations with President Trump warranted additional attention, he could have approached Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about it.
But instead he decided to do nothing. Comey apparently didn’t think there was need for a special counsel until the Monday after he was fired, according to his testimony.
In a clear act of retaliation, Comey went outside the system and shared secret information with the media via a college professor-friend, in a calculated attempt to inflict pain on the Trump administration. Further, he said he turned all his memos about his conversations over to the special counsel upon his termination – so Mueller’s investigators already had all they needed to make their own decisions.
But Comey knows that the press feed off attacking Trump. He also knows that they have an incomplete, false understanding of the Russia investigation and would therefore gladly perpetuate the false narrative that Trump was somehow under investigation. He saw a chance to cause drama, and he took it.
Yet this is the same person who on Thursday, under oath, exonerated Trump on the Russia question. Collins asked Comey two very direct, simple questions. She asked, “whether there was any kind of investigation about the President underway” and “was the President under investigation at the time of [Comey’s] dismissal on May 9?”
For both questions – under oath – Comey answered “no.”
Gingrich correctly announces the death of the “collusion” angle of the Deep State abuse of power against a duly elected President. Then Newt Gingrich goes for the kill:
But there’s another wrinkle in this story: Comey and Mueller are very close.
Throughout his testimony, Comey described Mueller as “one of this country’s great, great pros,” called him “the right person” to lead the Russia investigation, and said “Bob Mueller is one of the finest people and public servants this country’s ever produced. He will do it well. He is a dogged, tough person, and you can have high confidence that, when it’s done, he’s turned over all the rocks.”
When Senator John Cornyn asked whether anything Comey had testified would “impede the investigation of the FBI or Director Mueller’s commitment to get to the bottom of this,” Comey stressed that the appointment of Mueller was “a critical part of that equation.”
Let’s also not forget that 97 percent of campaign donations from Department of Justice employees went to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. The culture and people at DOJ are predisposed to be hostile to President Trump.
So, what we have here is a fired FBI director, who leaked private material to the press, so he could get his friend appointed as a special counsel in order to take retribution on the President – with the aid of a department full of federal lawyers who would have rather seen Hillary in the White House. And we are supposed to believe this will be an objective, unbiased investigation?
Comey’s testimony – and the situation he orchestrated around it – really show the depths to which the deep state will go – working around Congress, outside of even the federal process – to damage and undermine President Trump. And it perfectly illustrates how sick the system has become. [snip]
Make no mistake: This is not about law and order, it is not about justice, it is not even about any investigation. This is about influence peddling, this is about the search for vengeance, and this is about stopping the revolution President Trump was elected to implement.
This is everything that sickens normal Americans about the swamp.
America is on a knife’s edge. The question is now whether Republicans in Congress will have the courage to stand with President Trump and fight the deep state that was personified in Comey’s testimony Thursday.
The GOP establishment is in cahoots with the Obama Dimocrat Deep State opposition to a duly elected President of the United States. It is citizens who must stand up against the cowardly Comey cronies who strike from the protection of shadows.
The testimony of James Comey proved long on atmospherics and short on ethics. While many were riveted by Comey’s discussion of his discomfort in meetings with President Trump, most seemed to miss the fact that Comey was describing his own conduct in strikingly unethical terms. The greatest irony is that Trump succeeded in baiting Comey to a degree that even Trump could not have imagined. After calling Comey a “showboat” and poor director, Comey proceeded to commit an unethical and unprofessional act in leaking damaging memos against Trump.
Comey described a series of ethical challenges during his term as FBI director. Yet, he almost uniformly avoided taking a firm stand in support of the professional standards of the FBI. During the Obama administration, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch gave Comey a direct order to mislead the public by calling the ongoing investigation a mere “matter.” Rather than standing firm on the integrity of his department and refusing to adopt such a meaningless and misleading term, Comey yielded to Lynch while now claiming discomfort over carrying out the order.
When Trump allegedly asked for Comey to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn or pledge loyalty, Comey did not tell the president that he was engaging in wildly inappropriate conduct. He instead wrote a memo to file and told close aides. He now says that he wishes he had the courage or foresight to have taken a stand with the president.
However, the clearest violation came in the days following his termination. Comey admits that he gave the damaging memos to a friend at Columbia Law School with the full knowledge that the information would be given to the media. It was a particularly curious moment for a former director who was asked by the president to fight the leakers in the government. He proceeded in becoming one of the most consequential leakers against Trump.
Comey said that he took these actions days after his termination, when he said that he woke up in the middle of the night and realized suddenly that the memos could be used to contradict Trump. It was a bizarrely casual treatment of material that would be viewed by many as clearly FBI information. He did not confer with the FBI or the Justice Department. He did not ask for any classification review despite one of the parties described being the president of the United States. He simply sent the memos to a law professor to serve as a conduit to the media.
As a threshold matter, Comey asked a question with regard to Trump that he should now answer with regard to his own conduct. Comey asked why Trump would ask everyone to leave the Oval Office to speak with Comey unless he was doing something improper. Yet, Trump could ask why Comey would use a third party to leak these memos if they were his property and there was nothing improper in their public release.
In fact, there was a great deal wrong with their release, and Comey likely knew it. These were documents prepared on an FBI computer addressing a highly sensitive investigation on facts that he considered material to that investigation. Indeed, he conveyed that information confidentially to his top aides and later said that he wanted the information to be given to the special counsel because it was important to the investigation.
Many in the media have tried to spin this as not a “leak” because leaks by definition only involve classified information. That is entirely untrue as shown by history. Leaks involve the release of unauthorized information — not only classified information. Many of the most important leaks historically have involved pictures and facts not classified but embarrassing to a government. More importantly, federal regulations refer to unauthorized disclosures not just classified information.
James Comey must be prosecuted by Special Counsel Mueller or Mueller will be incontrovertibly exposed as a Comey crony who owes his job to Comey and further exposed as a co-conspirator in a conspiracy to interfere in a federal investigation[s]. Turley correctly notes how Comey corruption taints the entire F.B.I.:
Comey’s position would effectively gut a host of federal rules and regulations. He is suggesting that any federal employee effectively owns documents created during federal employment in relation to an ongoing investigation so long as they address the information to themselves. FBI agents routinely write such memos in investigations. They are called 302s to memorialize field interviews or fact acquisitions. They are treated as FBI information.
The Justice Department routinely claims such memos as privileged and covered by the deliberative process privilege and other privileges. Indeed, if this information were sought under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) it would likely have been denied. Among other things, the Justice Department and FBI routinely claim privilege “inter-agency or intra-agency memorandums or letters which would not be available by law to a party other than an agency in litigation with the agency.” [snip]
Besides being subject to nondisclosure agreements, Comey falls under federal laws governing the disclosure of classified and unclassified information. Assuming that the memos were not classified (though it seems odd that it would not be classified even on the confidential level), there is 18 U.S.C. § 641, which makes it a crime to steal, sell, or convey “any record, voucher, money, or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof.”
There are also ethical and departmental rules against the use of material to damage a former represented person or individual or firm related to prior representation. The FBI website warns employees that “dissemination of FBI information is made strictly in accordance with provisions of the Privacy Act; Title 5, United States Code, Section 552a; FBI policy and procedures regarding discretionary release of information in accordance with the Privacy Act; and other applicable federal orders and directives.”
One such regulation is § 2635.703, on the use of nonpublic information, which states, “An employee shall not engage in a financial transaction using nonpublic information, nor allow the improper use of nonpublic information to further his own private interest or that of another, whether through advice or recommendation, or by knowing unauthorized disclosure.”
The standard FBI employment agreement bars the unauthorized disclosure of information “contained in the files, electronic or paper, of the FBI” that impact the bureau and specifically pledges that “I will not reveal, by any means, any information or material from or related to FBI files or any other information acquired by virtue of my official employment to any unauthorized recipient without prior official written authorization by the FBI.”
Had Comey taken the minimal step of seeking clearance, the department would likely have said that this was FBI information and not personal information. Comey instead decided to ask forgiveness rather than permission.
Comey is also subject to bar rules on releasing information inimical to the interests of his former employer. For example, under professional rule 1.6, lawyers need to secure authority to release information that “(1) reveal a confidence or secret of the lawyer’s client; (2) use a confidence or secret of the lawyer’s client to the disadvantage of the client; [or] (3) use a confidence or secret of the lawyer’s client for the advantage of the lawyer or of a third person.”
Comey actually showed both how to and how not to disclose such information. When Comey released the information, he knew that he was going to be called to Congress where he could disclose this information properly after giving the White House a chance to claim privilege. Instead, he decided to release the information early. Why?
Comey gave two equally implausible explanations. First, he suggested that he wanted to get the information to investigators. However, he knew not only that he was likely to testify but that these memos would inevitably be demanded by both congressional and federal investigators. Second, he said that he wanted to ensure the appointment of a special counsel. However on that Monday, many of us were saying that such an appointment was virtually inevitable. More importantly, he could have given the memos to investigators and properly laid the foundation for a special counsel.
The fact is that the leaking of the memos worked to the advantage of James Comey, not Robert Mueller. Comey was able to take over the narrative and news cycle after Trump had publicly belittled him and his record. Special counsels do not like leaks of this kind. It would have been far better for the special counsel (or Comey’s own former investigatory team and congressional investigators) to have the memos confidentially.
Um, didn’t James Comey lead an “investigation” swamp thing Lynch dubbed a “matter”, against Hillary Clinton for the very reason of mishandled government documents?
If we are to believe Jimmy Comey, he is a self-confessed coward. If we are to believe Jimmy Comey, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is a coward too. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has not seized computers from Comey and his Columbia crony. Special Counsel Rober Mueller is either a corrupt co-conspirator against a duly elected President or a coward – OR BOTH!
Former FBI Director James Comey is master operator on the Washington scene. That is the predominant impression I came away with from Comey’s testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday. It is an impression that is consistent with his self-serving confessions of uneasiness, discomfort, confusion, cowardice, fright, tongue-tied wonderment and the like. What manner of man (let alone FBI Director) is this?
Comey has met with his friend Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to supervise the investigation into Russia-related matters and whatever else strikes his fancy. Comey is Mueller’s old colleague and friend. We learned yesterday that once he was fired by President Trump Comey himself sought to engineer the appointment of a special counsel. Mission accomplished. [snip]
Comey testified that he read the memo to Richman for the purpose of having Richman transmit the contents to “a reporter” (presumably a Timesman).
Why use a cutout? Comey testified: “Because I was weary [of] the media [that] was camping at the end of my driveway at that point. I was actually going out of town with my wife to hide. I worried it would be feeding seagulls at the beach, if it was I who gave it to the media.”
Here the clock strikes thirteen. This is ridiculous. [snip]
What is Comey talking about? And by the way, what other seagulls has he fed? As I say, this guy is a master operator. He is a master operator who can dish out a patently absurd story with a perfectly straight face.
Today fired former FBI Director James Comey stated that he leaked data to a Columbia University friend who in turn provided the leaked information to the New York Times. Comey did this even though he stated under oath in the past that he never leaked information to the press.
The current updated analysis of the most recent list of so-called ‘leaks’ being reported and repeated by the liberal mainstream media (MSM) involving President Trump includes at least 38 leaks in total.
Many of these ‘leaks’ are now proven fabrications and the probability that many remaining ‘leaks’ are completely inaccurate is very high. [snip]
Of the 38 leaks listed below, nine are related to James Comey.
How many of these did Comey actually leak? [snip]
The President has the law on his side. Attorney General Sessions needs to add these entities and individuals to a growing list of corrupt swamp dwellers that need to be brought to justice. Former FBI Director Comey needs to be added to this list.
Drain the Swamp!
The list of leaks is long. Special Counsel Robert Mueller must investigate these leaks. Or is Robert Mueller himself a leaker? Or, as is apparently true as demonstrated by the lack of raids on the homes, offices, and computers, of James Comey and Daniel Richman, is Robert Mueller only interested in protection of his pal and co-conspirator James Comey?
No raids, no seizures of computers and records, point to Special Counsel Robert Mueller as corrupt as his pal Jimmy Comey.
Jimmy Comey aided and abetted swamp thing Loretta Lynch’s successful attempts to aid the Hillary Clinton political operation in 2016. Robert Mueller is in collusion with James Comey in a conspiracy to destroy a duly elected American president. Robert Mueller knows there is no “obstruction of justice” to investigate as it relates to President Trump. If there is “obstruction of justice” the obstruction is from the Comey/Mueller conspiracy to destroy a duly elected American president, especially as we all are now in agreement (including Chris “tingles” Matthews) that the “Russia collusion” lie is now proven so false even Obama Dimocrats have abandoned that sunken craft.
Update: #ArrestComey. Jimmy “Olive Oyl” Comey admitted Obama thug Loretta Lynch interfered in the investigation of Hillary Clinton yet Comey kept his mouth shut when the law requires him to speak out. Olive Oyl Comey also provided a government document to his crony at Columbia University with the intent that the government document be leaked. Jonathan Turley makes the case for #ArrestComey based on 18 U.S. Code § 641:
One of the most interesting new disclosures today in the Comey hearing was the admission by former FBI Director James Comey that he intentionally used a “friend” on the Columbia law faculty to leak his memos to the media. Comey says that he did so to force the appointment of a Special Counsel. However, those memos could be viewed as a government record and potential evidence in a criminal investigation. [snip]
The problem is that Comey’s description of his use of an FBI computer to create memoranda to file suggests that these are arguably government documents. Comey admitted that he thought he raised the issue with his staff and recognized that they might be needed by the Department or Congress. They read like a type of field 302 form, which are core investigatory documents.
The admission of leaking the memos is problematic given the overall controversy involving leakers undermining the Administration. Indeed, it creates a curious scene of a former director leaking material against the President after the President repeatedly asked him to crack down on leakers.
Besides being subject to Nondisclosure Agreements, Comey falls under federal laws governing the disclosure of classified and nonclassified information. Assuming that the memos were not classified (though it seems odd that it would not be classified even on the confidential level), there is 18 U.S.C. § 641 which makes it a crime to steal, sell, or convey “any record, voucher, money, or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof.”
There are also ethical and departmental rules against the use of material to damage a former represented person or individual or firm related to prior representation. [snip]
Moreover, if Comey was sure of his right to release the memo, why use a law professor to avoid fingerprints?
I find Comey’s admission to be deeply troubling from a professional and ethical standpoint. Would Director Comey have approved such a rule for FBI agents? Thus, an agent can prepare a memo during office hours on an FBI computer about a meeting related to his service . . . but leak that memo to the media. [snip]
Comey’s statement of a good motivation does not negate the concerns over his chosen means of a leak. Moreover, the timing of the leak most clearly benefited Comey not the cause of a Special Counsel.
Comey colluded with Deep State leakers to destroy President Trump because Jimmy Comey is a Deep State Swamp leaker. #ArrestComey #ArrestDanielRichman.
Olive Oyl. James Comey is Olive Oyl. A talk skinny bitch always getting into trouble yelling for someone to help her when she is the one that got herself into trouble in the first place.
North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, the Republican chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, asked Comey, “Did the president at any time ask you to stop the FBI investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. elections?”
The former FBI director replied, “Not to my understanding, no.”
Burr followed up by asking if any member of the administration made this request, and Comey replied, “no.”
Whiny bitch-boy Phony Baloney Comey who investigated, then contrary to the law did not prosecute Hillary Clinton, confessed he too is guilty of the same crimes as Hillary Clinton! Hillary Clinton was investigated for her violations of law in the way she negligently handled classified government documents. Well, Phony Baloney Comey did the same thing only much worse and Phony Baloney Comey admitted his criminal acts with government papers:
Former FBI Director James Comey acknowledged that he orchestrated the leak of a memorandum detailing his private interactions with President Donald Trump during testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Thursday morning.
“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter,” Comey said. [snip]
He added that he did so in hopes that his account might spur the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign’s contacts with elements of the Russian government, and any subsequent cover up.
So in order to influence government policy and appointment, Comey leaked classified government documents from a law enforcement agency during an active investigation.
Phony Baloney Comey corruptly leaked classified government documents of an investigation because he wanted to steer the investigation corruptly.
Later in the hearing, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) noted that one of the three things Trump asked Comey was: “Can you please tell the American people what these leaders in Congress already know — what you already know, you told me three times — that I am not personally under investigation.”
“You know,” Rubio continued, “this investigation is full of leaks, left and right. I mean, we’ve learned more from the newspaper sometimes than we do from our open hearings, for sure.
“You ever wonder why, of all the things in this investigation, the only thing that’s never been leaked is the fact that the president was not personally under investigation, despite the fact that both Democrats and Republicans and the leadership of Congress knew that and have known that for weeks?”
Good news for the Great President Donald J. Trump did not leak because Comey the whiny bitch did not leak it. Comey only corruptly leaked information damaging to President Trump.
The Comey revelations that he was a leaker explains why as Director of the F.B.I. Comey did not pursue investigations against leakers. Comey corrupted his office to protect himself and other leakers. Comey corruptly leaked to influence a federal investigation. That’s a crime.
