    Time to Stop Comparing CIA/FBI Coup Attempt to Watergate Nothing Like This Has Happened Before. It is minimizing to call it "Like Watergate" and that is what the MSM and the Deep State want to do. Call it the CIA/FBI Coup Attempt. That is what it is. Name the truth, that the Deep State with their Dogs in the Weaponized CIA/FBI and don't forget the IRS, have been working to undermine this country and its people. These are treasonous, seditious acts. They deserve to be judged with the full force of our Constitutional law and severe punishment needs to be...

    Revelations Not the New Testament Book of Revelations but the revelations from the investigation of the government special counsel. I believe it began on this day one year ago. The one year anniversary of most pivotal events is a time for review and reflection. I have looked forward to a random act of journalism that provided an accurate time line for the events relevelant to the Special Counsel but none are presented.Trying to connect the dots on my own resulted in a revelation. The revelation is the amount of corruption in our own government the investigation exposed. The bigger revelation...
  • Retiring Boehner/Cantor boys working to screw the Republican majority with Amnesty

    05/17/2018 3:47:33 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 13 replies
    That's what's going on here. They wanted Amnesty. They didn't get Amnesty. So they're trying to force Amnesty on their way out. And they're INTENTIONALLY working to assist the democrats in gaining the majority by depressing republican votes. The answer, as always, show up to vote no matter what and vote for the republican candidate in November! A republican majority without all these guys will be FAR more conservative. Amnesty has been their number one goal, and when they're gone (along with Ryan), Amnesty's DONE forever! Kaput! So ignore their games and show up to vote in November! The answer...
  • Contain Iran? Trump Should Copy Reagan.

    ABU DHABI -- Arab leaders love the idea that President Trump is ready to give Iran a punch in the nose. But is this White House truly serious about challenging Iranian power in the Middle East? The evidence is mixed, at best. I heard passionate enthusiasm for Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal from prominent Arabs gathered here last weekend for a conference sponsored by the Beirut Institute. They know that scuttling the nuclear deal could be dangerous, and that the region is already a powder keg. But many Arab leaders don't seem to care. To put...

    From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to...

    Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel says that the American people have had enough of the type of anti-Trump humor that he regularly spews and that it is now time for him to “make fun of ourselves.” In an interview with Deadline, Kimmel was asked whether he had prepared a “barrelful of barbs” for President Trump in his upcoming standup routine for ABC’s upfronts. “Oh, wow. Yeah, you know, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but I guess you’re right. Hopefully, it’ll be the last upfront of the Trump era, too,” Kimmel said. “So, I don’t know, I don’t know...

    Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) discussed the Iran nuclear agreement on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily, stating that President Donald Trump’s announcement on Tuesday that the United States is pulling out of the deal “took guts.” “I actually think it’s a great thing,” Lieberman told Breitbart Editor-in-chief Alex Marlow. “I think the president made the correct decision, and, frankly, it’s a courageous decision.” Lieberman, who now is on the advisory board at the Gatestone Institute and chairman of United Against Nuclear Iran, said former President Barack Obama “basically gave all our leverage away” and only stalled–rather than stopped–Iran’s nuclear weapons program....

    Thursday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said if President Donald Trump supports waterboarding he should “try it.” After playing a clip of Trump saying “torture works,” Goldberg said, “Well I would like to say is —I would like you to try it.” She continued, “I think people who have actually been tortured, who are saying that this is not a good thing, you should listen to them because you have never been tortured and neither has Dick Cheney.”

    No, you don't remember because Obama didn't win the 2016 Presidential Election and therefore his thoughts/ opinions on the subject are irrelevant. However, for the record, he said "Indeed, at a time when we are all rooting for diplomacy with North Korea to succeed, walking away from the JCPOA risks losing a deal that accomplishes -- with Iran -- the very outcome that we are pursuing with the North Koreans," Obama said in a statement. "That is why today's announcement is so misguided." Former President Barack Obama criticized President Donald Trump's decision to exit the Iran deal, this was...
  • John McCain Wants His Successor Appointed, Not Elected - So Typical of an Oligarch!

    John McCain is supposedly trying to hang on till past May 31st, after which he will either die or resign. The reason: so the PEOPLE don't get to choose his successor! If he dies or resigns before May 31st, there will have to be an election to fill out his term (he was just reelected in 2016). If he dies or resigns after that, then the governor can appoint somebody until the 2020 election. And McCain has already supposedly given the governor a list of people to succeed him, one of which would be his wife, Cindy. And wouldn't that...
  • Remember, McConnell is as responsible as Obama and Kerry for the failed Iran Deal

    Mitch McConnell, as Majority Leader of the Senate, twisted the Treaty provision of the Constitution on its head to GET THAT DEAL THROUGH! McConnell CREATED the provision whereby two-thirds of the Senate would need to DISSAPROVE of the deal in order to PREVENT the deal from becoming effective. Instead of the Constitutional provision whereby two-thirds of the Senate would need to APPROVE of a treaty before it could become effective. Pretzel McConnell!! Whatever it took to help Obama and his minions.

    The mind of the Chief | May 5, 2018 | ChiefJayStrongbow
    The Iran deal that was negotiated by Kerry/Obama was one sided in favor of Iran (gave them 150 billion in cash, removed certain trade restrictions, allows Iran to continue unfettered development of nuclear weapons and delivery systems whilst the outside world pretends it isn't happening and is precluded from verifying that Iran is in fact accelerating their development since they are now flush with cash). It almost seems like Team Obama (Clapper, Rice, Jarrett, Kerry, Clinton while she was Sec of State, etc) were bending Uncle Sam over for a good rodgering from one of our staunchest enemies (and one...

    President Trump, in a series of tweets Thursday, defended reimbursing $130,000 to his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for a payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, arguing that it’s “common among celebrities and people of wealth” and that no campaign money was used. “Mr. Cohen, an attorney, received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign, from which he entered into, through reimbursement, a private contract between two parties, known as a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA ,” the president wrote in the first of three tweets about the payment, revealed Wednesday by Rudy Giuliani....

    What does Sessions, Rosenstien, Comey, Mueller all have in common? They are Republicans. So we can ask, "What does Trump have to fear?" The election is over, the Democrats have been defeated and the Republicans are in charge. President Trump is safely in the midst of his own party, surrounded by loyal Republicans. But Trump is not safe and these Republicans are perhaps not what they seem to be. Yes, they are Republican in name, but what if they were compromised earlier or have another agenda than Trump's agenda? I have heard that Democrats were tampering in the Republican primary...
