@RealDonaldTrump Rendezvous With Destiny: Obliterate North Korea; #DitchMitch

It’s over for Mitch. It’s over for North Korea’s Phat Un. It’s just getting started for President Trump.

Previously we examined the madness of the totalitarian leftists in the United States. We discussed how leftist astrologers and much of the left believes that on August 21 President Trump will be removed from office because of the portents associated with an eclipse on that date. The argument is that President Trump’s birth date means he will be very much impacted by the August 21 eclipse and that on August 21 there will be the fall of a king.

We mocked these leftist astrological fantasies and noted that if anything, logic leads more to the notion that late in August President Donald J. Trump will eliminate the threat posed by North Korea’s callow and overweight oppressive dictator who rules as part of a family line of dictatorial kings. These leftist astrologers and the rest of the totalitarian left in America should note the point we made:

This loon who is two rocks short of the moon declares that Secretary of State Tillerson on a visit to the 38th parallel in South Korea appeared in “his manner, words and tone resounding authority and threatening.” No discussion about the totalitarian nature of North Korea and the menace it poses to the world. In his defense, at least this political “astrologer” acknowledges that maybe all this trouble to be seen coming in August might be about North Korea.

It is revelatory that leftist astrologers side with the killer king of North Korea and deplore the United States. But it is not just leftist astrologers who hate America and support the Phat Un dictator of North Korea:

Former President Barack Obama’s National Security adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power.

“History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries.

Rice urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump, and she pointedly attacked Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the deputy assistant to the president.

“John Kelly, Mr. Trump’s chief of staff, must assert control over the White House, including his boss, and curb the Trump surrogates whipping up Cuban missile crisis fears,” she wrote.

Rice complained that Trump’s rhetoric was “unprecedented and especially dangerous” and that America would have to be cautious about its response to Pyongyang.

President Donald J. Trump is not that fey weakling Barack Obama. President Trump will defend the values of America and destroy those who threaten us.

Earlier this week the Washington Post reported that the Defense Intelligence Agency assessed the nuclear threat posed by North Korea and concluded they had “successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles.”

That treacherous creep Barack Obama knew years ago. Barack Obama betrayed the United States with “strategic patience” to allow America’s enemies to grow strong and attack this country:

Tuesday’s bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.

During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile.

Barack Obama, Susan Rice, and the treacherous left hate America. President Donald J. Trump is not treacherous Barack Obama. Going back years to 1999, Donald J. Trump has been right in his assessment of North Korea and what must be done:


Yeah, he’s not Barack Obama. President Donald J. Trump will do what needs to be done. What needs to be done is the obliteration of North Korea. Tomahawk missiles, B1 bombers, the old B-52 bombers, naval bombardment, destruction of the tiny North Korean navy, destruction of all electricity plants, destruction of all bridges, destruction of all artillery, destruction of all command and control centers, MOAB bombs on all underground facilities, must be done within the first half hour. It must be total obliteration. Maybe that’s what President Trump means by “fire and fury”:

President Donald Trump defied political and media critics of his “fire and fury” warning to North Korea, suggesting that perhaps it wasn’t a tough enough statement.

“Frankly, the people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough?” Trump asked reporters during a brief press conference at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey. “Maybe it wasn’t tough enough.”

Trump repeated his frustration with politicians failing to address the North Korea threat, vowing strength and resolve in the negotiations.

“What’s tougher than fire and fury?” one reporter asked.

“You’ll see. You’ll see,” Trump replied.

Another reporter asked Trump to address Americans who were currently “anxious” about Trump’s statement to North Korea.

Trump advised Americans to be “very comfortable,” adding that it should be North Korean leaders who should be worried.

“They should be very nervous,” Trump said. “Because things will happen to them like they never thought possible, OK?”

Polls show the American people understand the danger posed by North Korea and stand by their duly elected President, Donald J. Trump.

Cassius in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar noted “The fault dear Brutus is not in our stars, but in ourselves….” The American people understand that President Trump himself will do not needs to be done no matter what the stars proclaim. Whatever the stars portend, President Trump has a “rendezvous with destiny”:

#DrainTheSwamp #DitchMitch

On the home front, President Trump has other enemies to contend with. Lou Dobbs is on the Trump Train and started a movement to #DitchMitch. After Mitch McConnell attacked the President as one who came in with “excessive expectations” President Trump moved to obliterate Mitch and throw him in a ditch:

President Donald Trump is suggesting that the Senate’s top Republican should step aside if he can’t pass Trump’s legislative agenda.

Trump says, “You can ask the question” about whether Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should remain in his position if he cannot pass a plan to repeal and replace health care, change the tax code and move an infrastructure proposal. [snip]

Trump has been sniping at McConnell for several days on Twitter, a reaction to McConnell’s earlier remarks that the president was new to Washington and doesn’t realize how difficult it is to pass legislation.

In the Swamp it is an “excessive expectation” that congress work until they get the job done. Congress is on vacation, not working. Get back to work you oafs:

President Donald Trump continued to needle Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for failing to pass an Obamacare repeal.

“Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “You can do it!”

Earlier on Thursday, Trump challenged McConnell for failing to pass an Obamacare repeal.

Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!”

Yesterday, Trump challenged McConnell on Twitter after the Senate majority leader criticized his “excessive expectations” about what could be done in Congress.

Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so,” Trump wrote on Wednesday. “After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?”



It’s clobbering time!

  1. They hate her at her new job too:

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/megyn-kelly%E2%80%99s-nbc-co-workers-reportedly-think-she%E2%80%99s-a-%E2%80%98diva%E2%80%99/ar-AApPkSC?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=ientp

    Her new colleagues at NBC are reportedly “outraged over her diva-like ways,” and according to a network source are wondering, “When does NBC stop throwing money at her?”

    Kelly is currently on a five-day tour to promote her takeover of the 9 a.m. hour of Today, which was re-labeled Megyn Kelly Today. Page Six says she’s “traveling on a charter jet with a support staff of five or six people, including a hairstylist, a makeup artist, a publicist and a security detail,” and that NBC paid extra to refurbish the show for Kelly.

    But another “insider” said the tour was “standard” and something plenty of anchors had done before, and that expenses for Megyn Kelly Today were already in the budget.

    Kelly’s first NBC show, Sunday Nights with Megyn Kelly, got off to a slow start and at one point was beaten out by a rerun of 60 minutes. It ended in late July after just eight episodes.

  2. No one wants this loser either:

    http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/345806-obama-donors-not-committing-to-biden

    Major donors to former President Barack Obama aren’t committing to Joe Biden.

    While it is exceedingly early in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, top Obama donors are signaling that Biden cannot depend on their support.

    Some say they might prefer a fresher face.

    “He’s got more than 40 years in Washington,” one Obama donor said of Biden.

    He’s the opposite of what the party says it wants right now. He’s going to have a tough time if he runs.”

    The Hill contacted more than 10 top donors to Obama for this story.

    None of them would commit to backing Biden, and many of them said they preferred to find a new voice to run against President Trump in 2020.

    On the heels of Hillary Clinton’s stunning Election Day defeat, the donors say they are picking up on the party’s mood for a new direction and that they have to be practical about who they back financially.

    “[We’ve] gotta be realistic and strategic, not emotional,” said one top fundraiser to the Obama-Biden tickets in 2008 and 2012. Democrats can’t support a candidate over obligation, the fundraiser added. [snip]

    When donors talk about fresh, new faces, one name frequently mentioned is Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who many believe will play a significant role in the future of the Democratic Party.

    Harris lit up the donor circuit last month in the Hamptons, where she was feted by top fundraisers. The event signaled to many in the room that she would seek higher office and they continue to buzz about the prospects. Even some longtime Obama aides say she fits the bill as a face for the party’s future.

    Kamala has come to embody what’s next for our party,” Ben LaBolt, the longtime Obama spokesman, told The Hill last month.

    Harris has conservatives talking, too. Last week, talk show host Hugh Hewitt predicted Harris could be the party’s next nominee.

    This isn’t to say that Obama World is unifying around Harris at this early stage.

    Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s senior adviser and confidante, has been trying to convince former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick to enter the race, according to a source familiar with their conversations. And others in the Obama orbit say they’re intrigued by Patrick.

    Progressives are still clutching to the hopes that Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will enter the race. But donors point to Sanders’s age — he’ll be 78 in 2020 — as a possible negative if he follows up his 2016 presidential bid with a second run.

    They also wonder if Warren, 68, will be able to appeal to party centrists.

    Age is an issue mentioned with Biden as well. The former vice president will be 77 during the next presidential race, said the first Obama donor source in noting that “campaigning is really exhausting.”

    Biden hasn’t said whether he intends to run for president again. But all signs indicate he’s considering it seriously.

    For starters, he has a book coming out next month, which some allies say will be a barometer for a presidential run. He has also been giving campaign-style speeches in New Hampshire and other states.

    Several donors predicted it would be difficult for Biden to do well with major donors and low-dollar fundraising, the two major buckets candidates rely on to filler their coffers.

    A Biden spokesperson did not respond to request for comment.

    The former vice president ran into fundraising walls in 2016 as he considered whether he would jump into the Democratic primary. As he took time to make his decision following his son’s death, he realized that many of the staunch donors who had supported the Obama-Biden ticket in 2008 and 2012 had already committed to Clinton.

    This time around, Biden may find himself in a similar situation.

    “I hate to say it, because I love Joe, but some feel he’s yesterday’s news,” one donor said.

    Elections are about the future not the past,” one Obama fundraiser put it when asked why he would likely not support Biden.

    But Robert Wolf, a major fundraiser for the Obama campaign who is close to Biden, said the former vice president is a strong potential candidate. “There isn’t anyone who doesn’t love Joe,” Wolf said. “And I think everyone would be excited if he decided to take the next step.”

    One former Biden aide said Biden appeals to the fractured Democratic Party, bringing together progressives and centrists.

    “Showing how to successfully lead is a model for the future,” the former aide insisted. “It’s about having that vision. And if there’s one thing Joe Biden has in spades it’s the energy and the steadfastness to get things done.”

    A Morning Consult–Politico poll out in June showed that 74 percent of Democrats viewed Biden favorably. Warren followed in second place, at 51 percent.

    Most donors and fundraisers interviewed for this story said they won’t begin to commit to candidates until the first quarter of 2019. And some acknowledged they could “tread water,” as one put it, until late 2019, when it will be difficult to avoid choosing sides.

    Until then, donors and fundraisers say they’ll be watching how the candidates set the stage in the coming months.

    “It’s all about how they get noticed,” one donor said. “Donors will be watching Biden and what the mood around him is like, but he’ll have his work cut out for him.”

    Biden got less than 1% in Iowa in 2008. Kamala Harris is a dolt. A truly stupid person. Pocahantas is a wooden Indian. Bernie has Jane to explain.

  3. …I don’t know why everyone is giving Mitch McConnell such a hard time…He had to get back to Kentucky to speak to the Rotary Club…

    …don’t you people understand priorities…

    …and he had to clue them in on our ‘rookie’ Prez…

    geesh…

  4. Yeah, he’s not Barack Obama. President Donald J. Trump will do what needs to be done. What needs to be done is the obliteration of North Korea. Tomahawk missiles, B1 bombers, the old B-52 bombers, naval bombardment, destruction of the tiny North Korean navy, destruction of all electricity plants, destruction of all bridges, destruction of all artillery, destruction of all command and control centers, MOAB bombs on all underground facilities, must be done within the first half hour. It must be total obliteration. Maybe that’s what President Trump means by “fire and fury”:
    ———————–
    Yep. And of all the candidates who ran for president in 2016, he was the only one who could get it done.

    Which is why I believe it was Providence, not Russia, who intervened in last year’s election.

    Side benefit: After North Korea is eliminated as a threat once and for all, Trump’s approval rating will skyrocket to 95%.

    Putin who?

  5. Matthew77, don’t think for a moment the left is not concerned that “Trump’s approval rating will skyrocket to 95%”.

    At the Nutroots nation coven of Kooks they are planning what to do about all this:

    http://freebeacon.com/politics/netroots-panel-compares-bush-hitler-will-strategize-trump-tragedy/

    Netroots Panel Compares Bush to Hitler, Will Strategize How to Oppose Trump if Americans Rally Around Him During Tragedy

    One panel at the upcoming left-wing activist gathering Netroots Nation will compare George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler and strategize how to oppose President Donald Trump should a 9/11-like national tragedy cause people to rally around him. [snip]

    The panel description goes on to say, “With Trump, [Stephen] Bannon and their allies in Congress, progressives must be prepared to fight back in the first hours and days of a national security crisis.”

    Netroots will take place Thursday through Sunday in Atlanta, Ga, and will feature former Vice President Al Gore, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), and more than 80 panels and training sessions that will mainly focus on resistance to Trump.

    In a national emergency the leftist kooks will do what they can to undermine national unity, national security, nationals sanity. They hate America and America hates them.

    Left-Wing Magazine The Nation Report Puts ‘Russian Hack’ DNC Narrative in Freefall

    A bombshell report published Wednesday by avowedly liberal news magazine The Nation may have put the last nail in the coffin of the “Russian hack” narrative that has dominated the mainstream media’s coverage for the last year.
    Author Patrick Lawrence assembles the findings of months of investigation by forensic computer experts and former NSA officials to conclude, quite categorically, what Breitbart News and other independent media outlets have suggested for nearly a year: there was no hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) by the Russian government or anyone else last summer. An internal leaker is a much more likely source of the confidential internal DNC emails that upended the presidential campaign season when they became public last June.

    Some supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders saw in the emails a DNC plot to support eventual nominee Hillary Clinton, dealing a blow to Democratic unity in the runup to the party’s convention.

    The Nation, a leading publication of the American left for over a century, may seem an unlikely place for such a thorough refutation of one of the Democratic Party’s most salient talking points. Lawrence, however, is strikingly forthright. Calling the supposed hack and the continual allegations of collusion by President Donald Trump and his associates a “great edifice,” Lawrence points to the central role the “DNC Hack” plays in the “Russiagate” narrative. He writes:

    All this was set in motion when the DNC’s mail server was first violated in the spring of 2016 and by subsequent assertions that Russians were behind that “hack” and another such operation, also described as a Russian hack, on July 5. These are the foundation stones of the edifice just outlined. The evolution of public discourse in the year since is worthy of scholarly study: Possibilities became allegations, and these became probabilities. Then the probabilities turned into certainties, and these evolved into what are now taken to be established truths.

    Now, according to the research by the experts Lawrence cites — the group Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) — a Russian government cyberattack on the DNC’s computers is likely not a “possibility.” The group has examined several aspects of the emails’ journey to the public eye and concluded it cannot be made to comport with a hacker in the former Soviet Union. The files apparently were transferred to a data storage device at a speed not possible over the internet. Metadata also indicate that the emails were taken by someone in the Eastern Daylight Timezone and then deliberately copy-and-pasted into a Microsoft Word file that had its language settings changed to Russian in a ruse to throw off investigators.

    The conclusions of four of VIPS’s investigators was unanimous. Lawrance writes:

    advertisement

    All those interviewed came in between 90 percent and 100 percent certain that the forensics prove out. I have already quoted Skip Folden’s answer: impossible based on the data. “The laws of physics don’t lie,” Ray McGovern volunteered at one point. “It’s QED, theorem demonstrated,” William Binney said in response to my question. “There’s no evidence out there to get me to change my mind.” When I asked Edward Loomis, a 90 percent man, about the 10 percent he held out, he replied, “I’ve looked at the work and it shows there was no Russian hack. But I didn’t do the work. That’s the 10 percent. I’m a scientist.”

    Nothing in the report, however, dissuaded the DNC from its conviction the Russians are responsible for the publication of their internal communications. “U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded the Russian government hacked the DNC in an attempt to interfere in the election. Any suggestion otherwise is false and is just another conspiracy theory like those pushed by Trump and his administration,” Adrienne Watson, the DNC’s deputy communications director told Breitbart News Thursday.

    The Nation’s story is by no means the first indication something might be awry with the “official version” of what happened at the DNC last summer. Shortly after the emails became public, Julian Assange, whose Wikileaks played a major role in the emails’ dissemination, claimed Russia played no role, but this did nothing to stem the flood of assurances about a Russian hack.

    The central text of the Russiagate gospel became the “Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA)” issued in January of this year, days before President Barack Obama left office. Presumably this ICA, quoted for months in the mainstream media as being the work of “all 17” American intelligence agencies, is the basis of the DNC’s continued claims of a Russian hack.

    The reality, as the New York Times finally admitted in June, was that only three intelligence agencies participated in the creation of the ICA. The “17 intelligence agencies” line, a fixture of pro-Russiagate media since Hillary Clinton used the figure in her second presidential debate performance, was and is fake news.

    Lawrence’s piece further takes the ICA to task. “James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, admitted in May that ‘hand-picked’ analysts from three agencies (not the 17 previously reported) drafted the ICA,” he writes, pointing out that not even the whole of the three agencies cited (the FBI, NSA, and CIA) were involved but only a few staffers “hand-picked” by Clapper.

    advertisement

    The intelligence agencies, according to Lawrence, did not even examine the DNC’s computers, an omission he calls “beyond preposterous,” and instead relied on a third-party report from Crowdstrike, a non-profit co-founded by Dmitri Alperovitch, described as “vigorously anti-Russian.” The “high confidence” in Russian culpability we heard of again and again in mainstream media reporting is an “evasive term” and “how officials avoid putting their names on the assertions we are so strongly urged to accept.”

    Some conservatives are already lauding Lawrance’s report and the work of VIPS as a final vindication of their skepticism. Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning, for example, issued the following statement Thursday:

    If the whole premise of the [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller investigation, that Russia hacked the DNC emails interfering with the elections, is in fact false and it was a DNC insider as the Nation reports former NSA officials contending, there is simply no rationale for the special counsel to continue investigating the Russia angle. It is
    incumbent upon the Justice Department to determine and settle once and for all the true source of the DNC emails. The only prosecutions that can flow from that investigation must be of Obama administration officials who covered up the real facts surrounding the DNC emails, setting the nation off on this new red scare. If Mueller is unwilling to go where the evidence leads, in this case to the DNC itself and the Obama administration cover-up, then he is not fit to serve. In Mueller’s case, this is either obstruction or willful blindness.

    As Breitbart News’s Joel Pollak wrote last month, the “DNC Hack,” now better known as the “DNC Leak,” the term originally used in these pages, is not the only pillar of the Russia collusion narrative to face collapse as the media hysteria passes its first anniversary. It became clear through the testimony of Investor William Browder that Fusion GPS, the research firm that assembled for a still unknown client the infamous, perverse 2016 dossier describing now-President Trump asking Russian prostitutes to urinate for his pleasure, had, in fact, worked for the Russian government in the past.

    With actual evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign now looking increasingly unlikely to come to light, there are increasing indications Mueller’s investigation has shifted to looking for financial crimes allegedly committed by President Trump and his family long before and far outside the presidential campaign. The impact of the revelations unearthed by the VIPS team and The Nation on that investigation have yet to be seen.

  7. Democrats are defending psycho monster dictators having nukes. How did Trump get them to do that? Look at the Pavlov’s dogs experiments. Lucky Trump the dog “conditioner”.

  8. here’s the article…it is long, however keep in mind The Nation is a far left publication

    A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Year’s DNC Hack

    Former NSA experts say it wasn’t a hack at all, but a leak—an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system.

    It is now a year since the Democratic National Committee’s mail system was compromised—a year since events in the spring and early summer of 2016 were identified as remote hacks and, in short order, attributed to Russians acting in behalf of Donald Trump. A great edifice has been erected during this time. President Trump, members of his family, and numerous people around him stand accused of various corruptions and extensive collusion with Russians. Half a dozen simultaneous investigations proceed into these matters. Last week news broke that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had convened a grand jury, which issued its first subpoenas on August 3. Allegations of treason are common; prominent political figures and many media cultivate a case for impeachment.

    The president’s ability to conduct foreign policy, notably but not only with regard to Russia, is now crippled. Forced into a corner and having no choice, Trump just signed legislation imposing severe new sanctions on Russia and European companies working with it on pipeline projects vital to Russia’s energy sector. Striking this close to the core of another nation’s economy is customarily considered an act of war, we must not forget. In retaliation, Moscow has announced that the United States must cut its embassy staff by roughly two-thirds. All sides agree that relations between the United States and Russia are now as fragile as they were during some of the Cold War’s worst moments. To suggest that military conflict between two nuclear powers inches ever closer can no longer be dismissed as hyperbole.

    All this was set in motion when the DNC’s mail server was first violated in the spring of 2016 and by subsequent assertions that Russians were behind that “hack” and another such operation, also described as a Russian hack, on July 5. These are the foundation stones of the edifice just outlined. The evolution of public discourse in the year since is worthy of scholarly study: Possibilities became allegations, and these became probabilities. Then the probabilities turned into certainties, and these evolved into what are now taken to be established truths. By my reckoning, it required a few days to a few weeks to advance from each of these stages to the next. This was accomplished via the indefensibly corrupt manipulations of language repeated incessantly in our leading media.

    We are urged to accept the word of institutions and senior officials with long records of deception.

    Lost in a year that often appeared to veer into our peculiarly American kind of hysteria is the absence of any credible evidence of what happened last year and who was responsible for it. It is tiresome to note, but none has been made available. Instead, we are urged to accept the word of institutions and senior officials with long records of deception. These officials profess “high confidence” in their “assessment” as to what happened in the spring and summer of last year—this standing as their authoritative judgment. Few have noticed since these evasive terms first appeared that an assessment is an opinion, nothing more, and to express high confidence is an upside-down way of admitting the absence of certain knowledge. This is how officials avoid putting their names on the assertions we are so strongly urged to accept—as the record shows many of them have done.

    We come now to a moment of great gravity.

    There has been a long effort to counter the official narrative we now call “Russiagate.” This effort has so far focused on the key events noted above, leaving numerous others still to be addressed. Until recently, researchers undertaking this work faced critical shortcomings, and these are to be explained. But they have achieved significant new momentum in the past several weeks, and what they have done now yields very consequential fruit. Forensic investigators, intelligence analysts, system designers, program architects, and computer scientists of long experience and strongly credentialed are now producing evidence disproving the official version of key events last year. Their work is intricate and continues at a kinetic pace as we speak. But its certain results so far are two, simply stated, and freighted with implications:
    •There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee’s system on July 5 last year—not by the Russians, not by anyone else. Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak—a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device. In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system. This casts serious doubt on the initial “hack,” as alleged, that led to the very consequential publication of a large store of documents on WikiLeaks last summer.
    •Forensic investigations of documents made public two weeks prior to the July 5 leak by the person or entity known as Guccifer 2.0 show that they were fraudulent: Before Guccifer posted them they were adulterated by cutting and pasting them into a blank template that had Russian as its default language. Guccifer took responsibility on June 15 for an intrusion the DNC reported on June 14 and professed to be a WikiLeaks source—claims essential to the official narrative implicating Russia in what was soon cast as an extensive hacking operation. To put the point simply, forensic science now devastates this narrative.

    This article is based on an examination of the documents these forensic experts and intelligence analysts have produced, notably the key papers written over the past several weeks, as well as detailed interviews with many of those conducting investigations and now drawing conclusions from them. Before proceeding into this material, several points bear noting.

    One, there are many other allegations implicating Russians in the 2016 political process. The work I will now report upon does not purport to prove or disprove any of them. Who delivered documents to WikiLeaks? Who was responsible for the “phishing” operation penetrating John Podesta’s e-mail in March 2016? We do not know the answers to such questions. It is entirely possible, indeed, that the answers we deserve and must demand could turn out to be multiple: One thing happened in one case, another thing in another. The new work done on the mid-June and July 5 events bears upon all else in only one respect. We are now on notice: Given that we now stand face to face with very considerable cases of duplicity, it is imperative that all official accounts of these many events be subject to rigorously skeptical questioning. Do we even know that John Podesta’s e-mail was in fact “phished”? What evidence of this has been produced? Such rock-bottom questions as these must now be posed in all other cases.

    Two, houses built on sand and made of cards are bound to collapse, and there can be no surprise that the one resting atop the “hack theory,” as we can call the prevailing wisdom on the DNC events, appears to be in the process of doing so. Neither is there anything far-fetched in a reversal of the truth of this magnitude. American history is replete with similar cases. The Spanish sank the Maine in Havana harbor in February 1898. Iran’s Mossadegh was a Communist. Guatemala’s Árbenz represented a Communist threat to the United States. Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh was a Soviet puppet. The Sandinistas were Communists. The truth of the Maine, a war and a revolution in between, took a century to find the light of day, whereupon the official story disintegrated. We can do better now. It is an odd sensation to live through one of these episodes, especially one as big as Russiagate. But its place atop a long line of precedents can no longer be disputed.

    Forensic investigators, prominent among them people with decades’ experience at high levels in our national-security institutions, have put a body of evidence on a table previously left empty.

    Three, regardless of what one may think about the investigations and conclusions I will now outline—and, as noted, these investigations continue—there is a bottom line attaching to them. We can even call it a red line. Under no circumstance can it be acceptable that the relevant authorities—the National Security Agency, the Justice Department (via the Federal Bureau of Investigation), and the Central Intelligence Agency—leave these new findings without reply. Not credibly, in any case. Forensic investigators, prominent among them people with decades’ experience at high levels in these very institutions, have put a body of evidence on a table previously left empty. Silence now, should it ensue, cannot be written down as an admission of duplicity, but it will come very close to one.

    It requires no elaboration to apply the above point to the corporate media, which have been flaccidly satisfied with official explanations of the DNC matter from the start.

    Qualified experts working independently of one another began to examine the DNC case immediately after the July 2016 events. Prominent among these is a group comprising former intelligence officers, almost all of whom previously occupied senior positions. Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), founded in 2003, now has 30 members, including a few associates with backgrounds in national-security fields other than intelligence. The chief researchers active on the DNC case are four: William Binney, formerly the NSA’s technical director for world geopolitical and military analysis and designer of many agency programs now in use; Kirk Wiebe, formerly a senior analyst at the NSA’s SIGINT Automation Research Center; Edward Loomis, formerly technical director in the NSA’s Office of Signal Processing; and Ray McGovern, an intelligence analyst for nearly three decades and formerly chief of the CIA’s Soviet Foreign Policy Branch. Most of these men have decades of experience in matters concerning Russian intelligence and the related technologies. This article reflects numerous interviews with all of them conducted in person, via Skype, or by telephone.

    The customary VIPS format is an open letter, typically addressed to the president. The group has written three such letters on the DNC incident, all of which were first published by Robert Parry at http://www.consortiumnews.com. Here is the latest, dated July 24; it blueprints the forensic work this article explores in detail. They have all argued that the hack theory is wrong and that a locally executed leak is the far more likely explanation. In a letter to Barack Obama dated January 17, three days before he left office, the group explained that the NSA’s known programs are fully capable of capturing all electronic transfers of data. “We strongly suggest that you ask NSA for any evidence it may have indicating that the results of Russian hacking were given to WikiLeaks,” the letter said. “If NSA cannot produce such evidence—and quickly—this would probably mean it does not have any.”

    The day after Parry published this letter, Obama gave his last press conference as president, at which he delivered one of the great gems among the official statements on the DNC e-mail question. “The conclusions of the intelligence community with respect to the Russian hacking,” the legacy-minded Obama said, “were not conclusive.” There is little to suggest the VIPS letter prompted this remark, but it is typical of the linguistic tap-dancing many officials connected to the case have indulged so as to avoid putting their names on the hack theory and all that derives from it.

    Until recently there was a serious hindrance to the VIPS’s work, and I have just suggested it. The group lacked access to positive data. It had no lump of cyber-material to place on its lab table and analyze, because no official agency had provided any.

    Donald Rumsfeld famously argued with regard to the WMD question in Iraq, “The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.” In essence, Binney and others at VIPS say this logic turns upside down in the DNC case: Based on the knowledge of former officials such as Binney, the group knew that (1) if there was a hack and (2) if Russia was responsible for it, the NSA would have to have evidence of both. Binney and others surmised that the agency and associated institutions were hiding the absence of evidence behind the claim that they had to maintain secrecy to protect NSA programs. “Everything that they say must remain classified is already well-known,” Binney said in an interview. “They’re playing the Wizard of Oz game.”

    New findings indicate this is perfectly true, but until recently the VIPS experts could produce only “negative evidence,” as they put it: The absence of evidence supporting the hack theory demonstrates that it cannot be so. That is all VIPS had. They could allege and assert, but they could not conclude: They were stuck demanding evidence they did not have—if only to prove there was none.

    Research into the DNC case took a fateful turn in early July, when forensic investigators who had been working independently began to share findings and form loose collaborations.

    Research into the DNC case took a fateful turn in early July, when forensic investigators who had been working independently began to share findings and form loose collaborations wherein each could build on the work of others. In this a small, new website called http://www.disobedientmedia.com proved an important catalyst. Two independent researchers selected it, Snowden-like, as the medium through which to disclose their findings. One of these is known as Forensicator and the other as Adam Carter. On July 9, Adam Carter sent Elizabeth Vos, a co-founder of Disobedient Media, a paper by the Forensicator that split the DNC case open like a coconut.

    By this time Binney and the other technical-side people at VIPS had begun working with a man named Skip Folden. Folden was an IT executive at IBM for 33 years, serving 25 years as the IT program manager in the United States. He has also consulted for Pentagon officials, the FBI, and the Justice Department. Folden is effectively the VIPS group’s liaison to Forensicator, Adam Carter, and other investigators, but neither Folden nor anyone else knows the identity of either Forensicator or Adam Carter. This bears brief explanation.

    The Forensicator’s July 9 document indicates he lives in the Pacific Time Zone, which puts him on the West Coast. His notes describing his investigative procedures support this. But little else is known of him. Adam Carter, in turn, is located in England, but the name is a coy pseudonym: It derives from a character in a BBC espionage series called Spooks. It is protocol in this community, Elizabeth Vos told me in a telephone conversation this week, to respect this degree of anonymity. Kirk Wiebe, the former SIGINT analyst at the NSA, thinks Forensicator could be “someone very good with the FBI,” but there is no certainty. Unanimously, however, all the analysts and forensics investigators interviewed for this column say Forensicator’s advanced expertise, evident in the work he has done, is unassailable. They hold a similarly high opinion of Adam Carter’s work.

    Forensicator is working with the documents published by Guccifer 2.0, focusing for now on the July 5 intrusion into the DNC server. The contents of Guccifer’s files are known—they were published last September—and are not Forensicator’s concern. His work is with the metadata on those files. These data did not come to him via any clandestine means. Forensicator simply has access to them that others did not have. It is this access that prompts Kirk Wiebe and others to suggest that Forensicator may be someone with exceptional talent and training inside an agency such as the FBI. “Forensicator unlocked and then analyzed what had been the locked files Guccifer supposedly took from the DNC server,” Skip Folden explained in an interview. “To do this he would have to have ‘access privilege,’ meaning a key.”

    What has Forensicator proven since he turned his key? How? What has work done atop Forensicator’s findings proven? How?

    Forensicator’s first decisive findings, made public on July 9, concerned the volume of the supposedly hacked material and what is called the transfer rate.

    Forensicator’s first decisive findings, made public in the paper dated July 9, concerned the volume of the supposedly hacked material and what is called the transfer rate—the time a remote hack would require. The metadata established several facts in this regard with granular precision: On the evening of July 5, 2016, 1,976 megabytes of data were downloaded from the DNC’s server. The operation took 87 seconds. This yields a transfer rate of 22.7 megabytes per second.

    These statistics are matters of record and essential to disproving the hack theory. No Internet service provider, such as a hacker would have had to use in mid-2016, was capable of downloading data at this speed. Compounding this contradiction, Guccifer claimed to have run his hack from Romania, which, for numerous reasons technically called delivery overheads, would slow down the speed of a hack even further from maximum achievable speeds.

    Time stamps in the metadata indicate the download occurred somewhere on the East Coast of the United States—not Russia, Romania, or anywhere else outside the EDT zone.

    What is the maximum achievable speed? Forensicator recently ran a test download of a comparable data volume (and using a server speed not available in 2016) 40 miles from his computer via a server 20 miles away and came up with a speed of 11.8 megabytes per second—half what the DNC operation would need were it a hack. Other investigators have built on this finding. Folden and Edward Loomis say a survey published August 3, 2016, by http://www.speedtest.net/reports is highly reliable and use it as their thumbnail index. It indicated that the highest average ISP speeds of first-half 2016 were achieved by Xfinity and Cox Communications. These speeds averaged 15.6 megabytes per second and 14.7 megabytes per second, respectively. Peak speeds at higher rates were recorded intermittently but still did not reach the required 22.7 megabytes per second.

    “A speed of 22.7 megabytes is simply unobtainable, especially if we are talking about a transoceanic data transfer,” Folden said. “Based on the data we now have, what we’ve been calling a hack is impossible.” Last week Forensicator reported on a speed test he conducted more recently. It tightens the case considerably. “Transfer rates of 23 MB/s (Mega Bytes per second) are not just highly unlikely, but effectively impossible to accomplish when communicating over the Internet at any significant distance,” he wrote. “Further, local copy speeds are measured, demonstrating that 23 MB/s is a typical transfer rate when using a USB–2 flash device (thumb drive).”

    Time stamps in the metadata provide further evidence of what happened on July 5. The stamps recording the download indicate that it occurred in the Eastern Daylight Time Zone at approximately 6:45 pm. This confirms that the person entering the DNC system was working somewhere on the East Coast of the United States. In theory the operation could have been conducted from Bangor or Miami or anywhere in between—but not Russia, Romania, or anywhere else outside the EDT zone. Combined with Forensicator’s findings on the transfer rate, the time stamps constitute more evidence that the download was conducted locally, since delivery overheads—conversion of data into packets, addressing, sequencing times, error checks, and the like—degrade all data transfers conducted via the Internet, more or less according to the distance involved.

    “It’s clear,” another forensics investigator wrote, “that metadata was deliberately altered and documents were deliberately pasted into a Russianified [W]ord document with Russian language settings and style headings.”

    In addition, there is the adulteration of the documents Guccifer 2.0 posted on June 15, when he made his first appearance. This came to light when researchers penetrated what Folden calls Guccifer’s top layer of metadata and analyzed what was in the layers beneath. They found that the first five files Guccifer made public had each been run, via ordinary cut-and-paste, through a single template that effectively immersed them in what could plausibly be cast as Russian fingerprints. They were not: The Russian markings were artificially inserted prior to posting. “It’s clear,” another forensics investigator self-identified as HET, wrote in a report on this question, “that metadata was deliberately altered and documents were deliberately pasted into a Russianified [W]ord document with Russian language settings and style headings.”

    To be noted in this connection: The list of the CIA’s cyber-tools WikiLeaks began to release in March and labeled Vault 7 includes one called Marble that is capable of obfuscating the origin of documents in false-flag operations and leaving markings that point to whatever the CIA wants to point to. (The tool can also “de-obfuscate” what it has obfuscated.) It is not known whether this tool was deployed in the Guccifer case, but it is there for such a use.

    It is not yet clear whether documents now shown to have been leaked locally on July 5 were tainted to suggest Russian hacking in the same way the June 15 Guccifer release was. This is among several outstanding questions awaiting answers, and the forensic scientists active on the DNC case are now investigating it. In a note Adam Carter sent to Folden and McGovern last week and copied to me, he reconfirmed the corruption of the June 15 documents, while indicating that his initial work on the July 5 documents—of which much more is to be done—had not yet turned up evidence of doctoring.

    In the meantime, VIPS has assembled a chronology that imposes a persuasive logic on the complex succession of events just reviewed. It is this:

    •On June 12 last year, Julian Assange announced that WikiLeaks had and would publish documents pertinent to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
    •On June 14, CrowdStrike, a cyber-security firm hired by the DNC, announced, without providing evidence, that it had found malware on DNC servers and had evidence that Russians were responsible for planting it.
    •On June 15, Guccifer 2.0 first appeared, took responsibility for the “hack” reported on June 14 and claimed to be a WikiLeaks source. It then posted the adulterated documents just described.
    •On July 5, Guccifer again claimed he had remotely hacked DNC servers, and the operation was instantly described as another intrusion attributable to Russia. Virtually no media questioned this account.

    It does not require too much thought to read into this sequence. With his June 12 announcement, Assange effectively put the DNC on notice that it had a little time, probably not much, to act preemptively against the imminent publication of damaging documents. Did the DNC quickly conjure Guccifer from thin air to create a cyber-saboteur whose fingers point to Russia? There is no evidence of this one way or the other, but emphatically it is legitimate to pose the question in the context of the VIPS chronology. WikiLeaks began publishing on July 22. By that time, the case alleging Russian interference in the 2016 elections process was taking firm root. In short order Assange would be written down as a “Russian agent.”

    By any balanced reckoning, the official case purporting to assign a systematic hacking effort to Russia, the events of mid-June and July 5 last year being the foundation of this case, is shabby to the point taxpayers should ask for their money back. The Intelligence Community Assessment, the supposedly definitive report featuring the “high confidence” dodge, was greeted as farcically flimsy when issued January 6. Ray McGovern calls it a disgrace to the intelligence profession. It is spotlessly free of evidence, front to back, pertaining to any events in which Russia is implicated. James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, admitted in May that “hand-picked” analysts from three agencies (not the 17 previously reported) drafted the ICA. There is a way to understand “hand-picked” that is less obvious than meets the eye: The report was sequestered from rigorous agency-wide reviews. This is the way these people have spoken to us for the past year.

    Behind the ICA lie other indefensible realities. The FBI has never examined the DNC’s computer servers—an omission that is beyond preposterous. It has instead relied on the reports produced by Crowdstrike, a firm that drips with conflicting interests well beyond the fact that it is in the DNC’s employ. Dmitri Alperovitch, its co-founder and chief technology officer, is on the record as vigorously anti-Russian. He is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, which suffers the same prejudice. Problems such as this are many.

    “We continue to stand by our report,” CrowdStrike said, upon seeing the VIPS blueprint of the investigation. CrowdStrike argues that by July 5 all malware had been removed from the DNC’s computers. But the presence or absence of malware by that time is entirely immaterial, because the event of July 5 is proven to have been a leak and not a hack. Given that malware has nothing to do with leaks, CrowdStrike’s logic appears to be circular.

    In effect, the new forensic evidence considered here lands in a vacuum. We now enter a period when an official reply should be forthcoming. What the forensic people are now producing constitutes evidence, however one may view it, and it is the first scientifically derived evidence we have into any of the events in which Russia has been implicated. The investigators deserve a response, the betrayed professionals who formed VIPS as the WMD scandal unfolded in 2003 deserve it, and so do the rest of us. The cost of duplicity has rarely been so high.

    I concluded each of the interviews conducted for this column by asking for a degree of confidence in the new findings. These are careful, exacting people as a matter of professional training and standards, and I got careful, exacting replies.

    All those interviewed came in between 90 percent and 100 percent certain that the forensics prove out. I have already quoted Skip Folden’s answer: impossible based on the data. “The laws of physics don’t lie,” Ray McGovern volunteered at one point. “It’s QED, theorem demonstrated,” William Binney said in response to my question. “There’s no evidence out there to get me to change my mind.” When I asked Edward Loomis, a 90 percent man, about the 10 percent he held out, he replied, “I’ve looked at the work and it shows there was no Russian hack. But I didn’t do the work. That’s the 10 percent. I’m a scientist.”

    Editor’s note: In its chronology, VIPS mistakenly gave the wrong date for CrowdStrike’s announcement of its claim to have found malware on DNC servers. It said June 15, when it should have said June 14. VIPS has acknowledged the error, and we have made the correction.

  9. The Google controversy is heading into areas that they expressly did not want to go. Like evolutionary biology. It is very amusing that the very people who got so terribly agitiated and loud over a few fundamentalist Christians resisting the theory of evolution (and it goes in many directions in many fields) are now the ones DEMANDING that evolutionary research NOT go there! All turtles and worms are the same damn it. Even if they are people.

    I suspect that in their data hoovering and analysis that Google has research showing things that are definitely not lining up with the current political correctness. Like nature versus nurture. Or college kids tend to study things their brains are naturally good at doing. And some are not good at much of anything unfortunately. Political correctness is morphing into bending evolution and nature. I’m not sure that is going to work out very well.

  10. After reading both of the articles above…it is very hard not to imagine Debbie Wasserman Shultz and her IT man & his family as integral to much of this so called “Russian hack story”

    it is absolutely unbelievable that under Comey, among all the other dubious things he did, that the DNC never handed over their so called Russian hacked servers to the FBI…and instead the FBI was fine with the DNC farming their server out to someone the DNC choose (see above for more conflicts of interest on that company)

    How are we to trust anything the DOJ, FBI, DNC, etc has said or did and any of the explanations that have been feeding us thru their complicit BM

    …and now Mueller is pivoting to go after PDT and his family on $$$ transactions…

    Where do we go to get true justice???
    Sessions does not have the courage to go up against all the players in this charade…they have already sidelined him…

    How do you fight all the powers in charge when they are corrupt? and purposely out to bring down the legitimately elected President of the USA…
    this is a coup by corrupted agencies we give the power to stop this kind of activity…

    Some, and just a few at this point of the “professional” left are seeing signs of if not complete annihilation being so marginalized that they can’t make a living. The signs of their demise and rot have been there but they thought they had a lock on the executive and judiciary and found that they don’t on November 8, 2016. The Nation, and other ideologue “publications” are sinecures for apparatchiks for good service as are think tanks, advisory boards, etc. These are the ones who are not qualified to be judges, civil servants, street organizers or have already time served. All of these “magazines” do not turn a profit and are supported by “donors”. Bill Krystal is doing the same thing only from the Never-Trumper angle (I guess his cruises for the senile are not working out). The donors are tax and subsidy hogs, public employee unions, etc who all in turn feed off the goodies from being in control. And like the DNC not being in control means less or no money.

    These old lefties that still occupy space at the Nation have to decide go down with the ship, jump ship to fight another day, or change sides. No money and starving or making an honest living is not an option to them. This article, which may or may not be true, is spun heavily and expertly. I suspect they are trying out new material to attract new funding sources (Koch Brothers?) to keep the LEFT gravy train alive. A Better Deal is the same thing. New and “better” marketing with new material spun as product to get more donors and clicks. Obama gutted them and they know it.

  12. Mormaer,

    all you say may be true…particularly from a “business” pov…

    however there are some basics…bottom line basics…that cannot be ignored

    DWS, her IT guy, Brazile…and just how does the DNC declare they have been hacked and the FBI never even looks at their server…no forensics…the DNC just gives it out to someone with strong anti-Russian inclinations…how convenient and the DNC, from out of Comey’s own mouth just accepts it…

    not to mention, Clapper, that paragon of truth, deeply entrenched…Comey…with his “good guy façade” as the front man giving cover to the “facts” DOJ, FBI, NSC are providing…funny 17 agencies that even Hillary insisted agreed recently got reduced to 3 with hand picked people

    all the whole ignoring all the blatant activity of Hillary and her OWN hidden server and disappearing emails…nah, no “intent” there…

    then…the quick switch hand…over here folks…here’s the “official, authenticated story”…

    while, on the other hand…full speed ahead for over a year with multiple congressional investigations of Trump & Russian collusion and now Comey brings in his buddy Mueller ad SC to dissect PDT & his family to the bone…right down to a Grand Jury…not to mention how Sessions was sidelined to prove useless…

    can’t find any Russian collusion with Trump because it does not exist…no problem, time to go after him on some $$$ conflict…they will find something…

    the whole purpose is to get Trump out of office…

  13. needs a little editing but I think you get where I am going…

    PDT has been setup to fail and be removed from office by the people that are supposed to stop that kind of thing…

    no one can deny that BM has been brainwashing the public every single day with nonstop panels pushing what the “officials” are investigating…and providing the conclusions before any evidence has been established…

    these days the favorite term is “deep state”

    (as for The Nation…maybe there is an old hippie or two left with some guts…frankly, I tend to agree with you more on that track, especially with Trump hater Katrina Vandem Heuvel as editor and publisher at their helm)

  14. I’m all for military action . Obama blew it and look at what we now face in Iran who is working hand and hand with N. Korea to create ICBMS capable of carrying nuclear pay loads to the US. I blame Obama, Bill Clinton, Bill Richardson, and Bush who all did nothing. I fully understand a pre-emptive attack on N.Korea is much more dangerous than what the US/Israel should have done to Iran as millions of people in S. Korea are at risk and off course our troops.Moreover, China could nuke us although I think they want to survive as they have lots of gadgets they like pouring on our markets.

    In the future, Trump must give dispositive weight to the performance of your portfolio when he decides issues of war and peace.

    But congratulations for having the best investment year of your life.

    Perhaps this clip from Funny Girl will assuage your grief.

  16. Mark Steyn has a fascinating interview with the author of a book called The Forgotten Man. Those of us who were familiar with that term before the book came out remember it as one of the slogans FDR to benefit the man at the bottom. However, we learn from this author that the originator of that phrase “the forgotten man” was William Sumner who is himself forgotten. But what he had in mind when he used it was the taxpayer who must pay for the social welfare programs which the elites pursue not because they work, indeed the works of Thomas Sowell among other prove to a fare thee well, that far from improving the situation, they invariably make it worse by creating a dependent class who have no incentive to emerge from the imperial culture of the slum. Why then do the elites purse these policies, at the expense of the forgotten man, and to the detriment of those at the bottom. One answer: so the elites can feel good about themselves. And that is also why they are so invested in identity politics and political correctness.

  17. Ahh Foxy , did you see who they are quoting in that article?

    “Joel Wit served as Senior Advisor to Ambassador Robert L. Galluci, and played a key role in reaching the 1994 U.S.-North Korea Agreed Framework. ”

    One of the inept framers of Clintons appeasement…

  18. S, it is not just the leftist The Nation that has weighed in on the Russia nonsense. Seymour Hersh too. Hersh fingers Brennan:

    https://spectator.org/it-was-a-brennan-operation/

    Even lefty Seymour Hersh agrees that the Russian fable begin in the mind of Obama’s CIA director.

    One wouldn’t expect Seymour Hersh, a lefty journalist par excellance, to pop the Trump-Russia propaganda balloon Obama’s CIA director John Brennan released last year. But he has. Hersh has been quoted as saying that the collusion claim is a product of “disinformation” — “a Brennan operation,” as he puts it.

    Hersh says that Trump is not the villain but the victim in this story, and that the press has served as a shameful stenographer for Brennan to smear Trump. It has shown no skepticism toward any of his claims or the supposedly nonpartisan reports his cronies and political hacks assembled after the election. Hersh calls Brennan an “asshole” and a “buffoon.”

    Indeed, it tells you all you need to know about the rottenness of the ruling class that such an open fraud could rise so high in Washington. Brennan, owing to his treasonous support for the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War (he voted for Gus Hall and supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party in the 1970s), should not have been allowed within a hundred-mile radius of Langley. Instead, he was hired and rose to the top of the CIA.

    A tool of the Muslim Brotherhood (during a stint in Saudi Arabia he says that he grew to admire Islam and the concept of jihad), Brennan refused to take his oath as CIA director on the Bible. His hatred for Michael Flynn and Trump stems in large part from his Islamophilia and his nostalgia for the socialism and the atheism of the Old Soviet Union.

    His Russian fable — which was itself a product of his collusion with foreigners from Estonia to England — fed off his disdain for Russia’s turn to Christianity and America’s turn away from Islam. For Brennan, any stick would do, and he found one in a bag of bogus intelligence supplied to him by Kim Philby types from Britain, socialists in Scandinavia and Germany, and Putin haters from the Baltics.

    While running this operation of political espionage, he was auditioning for a job under Hillary and turning CIA headquarters into a branch office of her campaign.

    In this hothouse atmosphere of pro-Hillary partisanship, any and all contacts between the Trump campaign and anyone even remotely connected to Russia became occasions for “unmaskings.”

    Instead of exposing this blatant political espionage, the media became a conduit for it. Hersh notes that the New York Times was in effect under the editorship of John Brennan last year. He could plant any smear he wanted against Trump on its front page.

    It is obvious that Brennan’s circle was responsible for many if not most of the criminal leaks. Why doesn’t the FBI raid Brennan’s home and rifle through his records? The reason that won’t happen is that the ruling class and deep state, which are composed largely of aging radicals, protects traitors while punishing patriots — a conclusion to which the improbable testimony of Seymour Hersh adds still more credence.

  19. yes admin, i saw that…

    the part that bothers me is, to this point, none of this information is getting any traction, except for perhaps from Sean Hannity/Lou Dobbs…and Hannity is also under assault by a campaign to take him off the air…(they already succeeded with O’R, Payne & Bolling thus far)

    all of this has been a concerted effort to take PDT out and use BM as a daily cut after cut coordinated with the use of anonymous sources to create distrust and hate towards PDT…to turn him into ‘a dangerous, racist joke’ and keep any positive info re: his successes out of the public’s attention or awareness…

    in fact, it has been reported that the left is demoralized because with all their efforts and FAKE news they still haven’t been able to compromise the support of PDT’s base…

    How are “we” supposed to ‘indict/investigate’ Brennan & Clapper when they are part of the group that is trying to take down PDT

    we are not even seeing any reporting or action on DWS, with the exception of some on Fox, othewise blacked out…

    bottom line, who at the FBI, DOJ, etc is going to go after “their own”
    the thing I found a bit encouraged from the Nation article is that is sounded like someone within the FBI was leaking the info…a patriot??
    I do not believe Sessions has the guts, i keep pleading for him to prove me wrong…he is so mild mannered, probably fears for his life if he goes against deep state
    saw Judge Napalitano on Fox and he stated and showed the docs that DOJ has released on Lynch/FBI issue and Session’s DOJ redacted and blacked out all the info that should be transparent
    What’s up with that? Who is Sessions working for?

    Admin, anyone else would have folded by now…PDT bulldozes on…he is one in a million…and as you say and i whole heartedly agree…a fighter…

  21. The president of Columbia describes the political genius of the progressive, who has conquered all institutions, and has only one remaining adversary who has not been lulled to sleep by his song or crushed under his/her jackboot:

    REALITY.

    A fish won’t do anything but swim in a brook
    He can’t write his name or read a book
    To fool dumb people is his only thought
    Though he slippery – he still gets caught
    But then if that sort of life is what you wish
    You may grow up to be a fish

    “Electoral politics is a little like fishing. When you fish you get up early in the morning and go to where the fish are — not to where you might wish them to be. You then drop bait into the water (bait being defined as something they want to eat, not as “healthy choices”). Once the fish realize they are hooked they may resist. Let them; loosen your line. Eventually they will calm down and you can slowly reel them in, careful not to provoke them unnecessarily. The identity liberals’ approach to fishing is to remain on shore, yelling at the fish about the historical wrongs visited on them by the sea, and the need for aquatic life to renounce its privilege. All in the hope that the fish will collectively confess their sins and swim to shore to be netted. If that is your approach to fishing, you had better become a vegan.”

  22. “Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain”.—Shiller

    “You can’t fix stupid. There’s not a pill you can take; there’s not a class you can go to. Stupid is forever..”—-Ron White

    Both statements apply with full force and effect to our (dearly) beloved big media.

  23. Very very impressive. Historian Amity Schlae, who has written books on Coolidge, and The Forgotten Man. She appeared on the Mark Steyn show and the interview sheds new light on what is going on in this country, how the current madness will end (when the dollar loses its status as the world reserve currency) and whether we really want an imperial president and an all powerful federal government. She draws cogent parallels Coolidge and Trump on matters of substance, as opposed to style. Stylistically, one was humble, the other flamboyant, but where it counts, i.e. in matters of substance both are much alike in the sense that both seek to preserve the republic and resist the transition from republic to direct democracy to oligarchy to dictatorship which was the trajectory of ancient Rome. The Bezos Zuckerberg construct is that as farm jobs morph into factory jobs that morph into low paying service jobs that are displaced eventually by automation, domestic tranquility will be achieved for the jobless masses through drug legalization, chips, games to distract them and assisted suicide. In the end that will produce millions of lives with no meaning. If that is how it goes, then domestic tranquility will soon be a snare and a delusion. Amity has a wonderful presence, delivery and so much to say that the country needs to hear if we are to escape the traps that the elites are laying for the rest of us. Like so much of what Mark Steyn has to say, this if very important stuff, in my opinion.

  24. wbboei,

    The elites have detached from the reality of their plans. And do not have an accurate picture of their own selves. It is no doubt that they plan a horror for most of mankind.

    Even if they take down Trump, he has already launched the revolution. Their choice is simple, accept a relatively peaceful one, or the guillotine, in whatever form that comes in. Who needs those parasites?

    They should accept whatever deal Trump offers them.

  25. Not sure Wbb you have seen this interview by Mark Styne with James Mitchell, the Psychologist that headed the interrogators under Bush for the CIA and who the obama DOJ, or Injustice I would say, allowed, or encouraged lawsuits to come forth by terrorists suing him for said actions…it’s very good and I did buy his book, actually should be getting it today!

    wbboei,

    The elites have detached from the reality of their plans.
    ———-
    They affect the airs of a ruling class.

    They sneer at the rest of us.

    They practice social engineering at our expense–so they can virtue signal.

    They enrich themselves at the expense of the middle class and the unborn.

    But just you touch one hair on THEIR fair head and what do they do?

    They go BLATTO!

    These people are poltroons , and we must treat them as such.

    (Note: Mark Steyn uses that word, and he told his audience to look it up)

  27. All of a sudden the Media is interested in protest violence…
    Of course it’s Trumps fault…

    And of course no one was there to actually protest the removal of a statue of Robert E Lee…

    We are all klansmen in their eyes

    And the throwing of poop and urine by the alt Leftand physical attacks by same don’t matter.

    The fact that the supporters of the Lee statue had obtained permission for a peaceful protest doesn’t matter…

    Gov Terry, the Clintonesta, over reacts and 9 minutes into the protest declares it over and martial law…

    Now people in White robes are not my cup of tea, but you can only tell young White men that they are the cause of all of societies ills, rapes and murders, past, present, and future so long and NOT expect a backlash?

    Fu$k um…

    What matters is that

    I watched it, and realized I had seen it previously. It is excellent. It is amazing what patriots will do for this nation, and how no good deed goes unpunished thanks to big media, the totalitarian left and the ignoranti they prey on.

  29. The left has been engaging in violent marches for decades and little if no coverage , particularly recently with the violent anti-police ,maches organized and paid for by the elites over the past 5 years. I am never going to support groups led by David Duke, but he is another guy that has been leading marches since his days in the klan and most of us are old enough to realize the venom he spews is BS. I have all the respect for the South and their culture and I can see why certain people with no prejudice feel persecuted having their history literally town down. Rather than try and de-escalate the situation, the media blames POTUS and his supporters for the acts of a few crazies on both sides. The bigger picture here is the systematic take down of a duly elected POTUS which may very well succeed. To think we ever lived in a true “democracy” is for the very naive.

  30. Well Chancellorsville is a mess. Who organized and manipulated the situation? First, it was not the right place to do it. The leftist Alinsky crew is in charge there. And where did that murdering creep come from? Something stinks.

  31. What drives Trump hatred over N. Korea? The fear by the left wing maggots who peddle such shit that history may well prove Trump right, in which case they with their soft diplomatic verses, constant retreat and throwing money at the situation, will be seen by history for the rubes they truly are. That more than anything else is the fear that drives these maggots. It gets back to something Richard Fernadez talked about, namely how they have competed their march through the institutions as the left wing theoritician Gramsci prescribed in The Prison Diaries, and now as they rest their laurels on their success, they find themselves confronted with a force they are ill equipped to handle, reality and the changing kalisdascope of threats to the absolute power over the individual and crushing him under their jackboot, cannot avoid. Reality, you see cannot be intimidated or bought off. And when these leftist look over their shoulder what they must see is the deathshead stalking them with the phase of the poet Virgil: live, I am coming.

    Korea and the Democrats’ Deep Psychological Fear that Trump Is Right

    One of the unspoken “indications” in the medical sense of the ever-metastasizing Trump Derangement Syndrome is that the sufferers have a deep conscious/unconscious fear that Trump is right. What if the man they have excoriated unremittingly as a barbarian-racist-xenophobe-homophobe-misogynist-nitwit turns out to have been on the correct side of a fair number of issues on which they have failed, sometimes miserably, for decades? Talk about personality disintegration — it would be hari-kari meets the Wicked Witch of the West. Well, emotionally anyway.

    The current North Korea crisis is a perfect case in point. Susan Rice — has this woman no shame — took to the pages of The New York Times to inveigh against Trump for “bluster” regarding the NORKS. The integrity-challenged former national security adviser was far from alone, however. Virtually all Democrats and their local media minions plus a good swatch of Republicans (including repellently vengeful John McCain) criticized the president for the same thing — using blunt language to counter the crazed dictator in Pyongyang when Trump should have been “diplomatic.”

    This although almost any grown-up not comatose knows that “diplomatic” language has been employed by the U.S. ad nauseam for that purpose for the last twenty-five years through three administrations with no discernible impact whatsoever. Indeed, “abject failure” would be an accurate characterization of our diplomatic policy vis-a-vis the NORKS. If you view this video of Bill Clinton extolling his administration’s “successful,” diplomatically achieved nuclear deal with Pyongyang back in 2006, the word “nitwit” does come to mind, but it’s not about Trump. Here’s Madeleine Albright in another glorious moment of diplomatic achievement with Kim Jong-un’s dad Kim Jong-il laying on the splendor in Pyongyang Stadium before signing some meaningless agreement whose import is known only to Dennis Rodman.

    How do you spell hornswoggled?

    Fmr. Obama Security Spokesperson Admits They Made No ‘Progress’ on North Korea
    Of course, George W. Bush didn’t do much better and Barack Obama — who evidently hid the North Koreans’ development of mini-nuclear warheads for several years from the sensitive ears of the American public, only to leave us in the disastrous situation we are in today — was considerably worse. This is the same Obama who pushed through the still mysterious Iran deal handing the NORKs’ best friends the mullahs enough cash to run rampant in Syria. Soon thereafter Barack reneged on his pledge to prevent the use of chemical weapons by that very country’s leader. Sense a pattern?

    SPONSORED

    And yet it’s the “blusterous” Trump who is supposed to be the problem. Actually, he’s the one left to pick up the pieces of an American reputation in tatters.

    Perhaps what we need is a little bluster. It’s an old technique and a sound one — good cop/bad cop. It was played out well by Nixon and Kissinger when Henry went to Beijing to negotiate with Mao and Chou. Kissinger threatened to let his “madman back home” (Nixon) loose unless the chairman cooperated and made a deal. It worked.

    Now we have Trump, Tillerson, Mattis and McMaster playing various levels of good cop/bad cop. They are even reportedly working the backchannels in the old diplomatic game. Let’s hope they learn from the past and do it better this time. Color me skeptical because without a serious military threat, I doubt the Chinese will listen.

    Did I say Chinese? Of course I did, because they are the true audience for what is going on. Mr. Kim is a whack job sideshow. The Chinese are the ones with the power to do something and stop a conflagration. And, like the Democrats and the Never Trumpers, they may be more afraid of Trump than they let on. Unlike Obama, he has shown he is not afraid to use force — and he did that while having dinner with Xi Jinping. Friday night he is supposed to be having a chat with Xi.

    By now we may all know what happened — at least the part the leakers deign to tell us — but we do not know what will happen. The facts on the ground have yet to be revealed.

    What has been revealed, however, is the psychology of those attacking Trump on this matter. They fear that they will be revealed as having been fools for the last twenty-five years — and indeed they were.

  32. I am not hearing it now, but I have a strong hunch that the same situation exists in the power structure of China as existed over a decade ago. At THAT time, I held a fundraiser for McConnell, Senator Slade Gorton showed up, and we discussed the downing of a US fighter jet in an island in the South China Sea. We talked about whether to retaliate by selling the Aegis technology to Taiwan, and the then president of Boeing, Allan Mulaely and the Microsoft people cautioned us not too. I took the opposing position, and true to form McConnell affected the pose of a breathing Buddah saying nothing. At that point, Gorton jumped into the discussion on my side, and he said the civilian part of the Chinese leadership did not favor the pulling down of our plane, but it was ordered by a general with the PLA (People’s Liberation Army). The arming of the North Korean military by the Chinese was done, I am sure, by the military portion of their leadership, and now the civilian contingent is seeing the possiblity of the loss of trade, the freezing of their banks under the Patriot Act, and the demise of their Silk Road vision. In this case, will the civilian faction prevail over the military one. Their best argument is that if they do not get rid of the mad man in North Korea, their entire regime may fall. That goes for the military too. That is the brinksmanship game going on now, in my estimation, and big media has no comprehension of any of this because they cannot see beyond their artificial perverse narrative.

  33. I think the NK Fatboy belongs to China as their attack dog. The submarine nuke thing has log been a favorite of the Chinese. I was reading the comments over at ZH and like this one, in particular:

    Jeffersonian Liberal Billy the Poet Aug 13, 2017 12:16 PM

    I wouldn’t doubt if Trump’s strategy in all this is to expose fully the fact that NK is China’s puppet, that NK doesn’t do anything without China’s nod, and that we need to re-balance all of our relations with the ChiComs, who are the true imperialists preparing to establish complete hegemony in the Pacific Rim.

    We have been crazy supporting this by buying their crap (simply because it is cheap) for three decades.

    Immigration: How Trump Derangement Syndrome Dumbs Down the Press
    BY ROGER L SIMON AUGUST 2, 2017 CHAT 366 COMMENTS
    How many IQ points do you lose from Trump Derangement Syndrome or similar conditions of blind political rage?

    I was asking myself that while listening to the stupefying question asked of Trump adviser Stephen Miller by CNN’s Jim Acosta at Wednesday’s White House press conference. Miller had been explaining — with a level of clarity and specificity not often seen at these events — the immigration proposal being proffered by Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue and now being backed by the president. The press audience appeared impatient with these details, however, waiting to pounce as it almost always does.

    And the pounce came from Acosta, who was irked the proposal listed some level of facility with the English language as one of the new preference points for possible immigration applicants. Wasn’t that de facto discrimination in favor of people from the UK and Australia (read: white skin privilege)?

    Earth to Acosta: As of 2015, there were 54 sovereign states and 27 non-sovereign entities where English was an official language. These include India (population: 1,247,540,000), Pakistan (199,085,847), Nigeria (182,202,000), the Philippines (102,885,100), Tanzania (51,820,000) and Kenya (45,010,056) among, obviously, many others. In China (population 1.39 billion), almost all school children begin English in the third grade. In Japan, South Korea and Singapore, it’s also mandatory beginning about the same time. Anyone who’s been to Europe recently knows it’s hard to find anyone under fifty in those countries now who doesn’t speak some degree of English. I could go on, but it’s pointless. English has become, for all intents and purposes, the world lingua franca. The number of possible immigrants from the UK and Australia is less than minuscule by comparison and the implication of racism (hidden in plain sight in Acosta’s question) therefore ludicrous. It’s the opposite.

    So, assuming he didn’t have a lobotomy on the way to the press conference, what made the CNN reporter so (to be blunt) catastrophically uninformed that he would ask such a thing

    Answer: a cocktail of blind rage, the overwhelming self-centered need for you and your side always to be right with (for bitters) a healthy splash of malignant moral narcissism. In 2017, that’s called “The Trump,” served neat or on-the-rocks and stronger even than Dorothy Parker’s martini. Two glasses and the only word left in your vocabulary is “Russia,” three and it’s “impeachment” (slurred heavily). Rational discussion has gone out the window. It isn’t even a possibility.

    I could say it’s unfair to Acosta to single him out, but it’s really not. He has been especially bad, ensconced in a front-row seat at these events as if he were a wannabe starlet preening for a photo opportunity. (“Are you watching, Mr. DeMille?”) He was also constitutionally incapable of letting Miller speak for fear, as is so often the case, he would have to deal with what Miller was actually saying.

    But the real loser in all this is not Acosta or even CNN. It’s the American people who learn less than zero from the press conferences, in fact are brutally misled by our media in a wanton and selfish matter. It’s all about them and not one jot about informing their audience. In fact, there is an almost palpable rejection of the latter because then they (that unwashed audience) might see something, anything, good in what Trump or one of his minions might be proposing. That is not allowed to happen under any circumstances. Dialogue nyet!

    The immigration question on the table Wednesday is an excellent case in point. Miller was treating the press (and the television audience) as adults, carefully explaining the administration’s rationale for the proposal. It is their contention that some restriction on immigration is greatly for the benefit of the many unemployed American citizens already here — particularly minorities. Blacks and Latinos have the most to gain from this.

    There are clearly pros and cons to this argument, but the press refused to engage in a similarly adult manner on this significant issue that has not been seriously discussed in decades. They only attacked. And the attacks were almost as brainless as Acosta’s, sometimes more. That’s what happens where you’re governed by rage and self-centeredness.

    This attitude has been going on for a long time now. Too long really. Marx, in one of his more lucid moments, famously said history plays out the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce. What’s the third time? I nominate nausea.

  36. Hurt and Angry, Charlottesville Tries to Regroup From Violence

    “But according to many witnesses, the police waited to intervene. Ms. Caine-Conley called it “fascinating and appalling.”

    Mr. Kessler, too, complained.
    In a statement, he said the authorities had “exacerbated the violence” by failing to separate his followers from counterprotesters. He said his group had “networked with law enforcement officials” months ago on a plan for maintaining safety, which he said was not followed, and he called the police “underequipped for the situation.”
    http://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/13/us/charlottesville-protests-white-nationalists.html

  37. Oh me oh my. What have Gov McAuliffe and first line expendable Mayor Signer gotten themselves into? It was their turn to do the latest progressive dance number and it went sideways very quickly.

    Summarizing the new dance goes like this: take a smallish but sensitive local issue, issue a permit to assemble/protest to the group not liking the issue, invite in Anti-fa or black block or anarchists or BLM or La Raza to counter-protest, allow the permitted assemblers to gather on scene, allow or direct traffic and arrange parking/drop off for the anarchists to the scene, withdraw the police or order no action from them at the last possible minute, watch the mayhem, and then declare racism and Nazism.

    This almost exact “game” has happened in Chicago, SF/Berkley, Sacramento, Phoenix, etc. It has been attempted in NYC, Austin, Dallas, and Houston that I’m aware of but the cops would NOT stand down. What (using simple deductive reasoning) do these locations have in common? Could it be progressive mayors? And maybe sometime progressive governors backing them up or GOPe ones acting confused and clueless. Could these mayors use the cops as political tools? Are they following a plan of say Soros’ Open Society?

    These progressive mayors all say the same thing. Racists/homophobes/women-haters or the preferred short-hand Nazi should not be allowed to assemble or speak in their fair city. Their city issued a free speech and free assembly permit often involving a federal judge who ordered it the opportunity for chaos and propaganda can’t be missed. And no cops interfere because the un-permitted (illegal) anarchists might hurt the cops (got to keep those workers comp premiums low). Always BOTH sides are violent but there is no proof of that. Ergo the city is moral and good. BUT they violated the First Amendment rights of the permitted group who followed the law to assemble and use their right to free speech. So how do they square this and didn’t they just violate a court order? Laws don’t matter if one side is deemed bad and the violators virtue signal everyone they are good.

    The joy and elation which broke out after the DOJ said there will be a “civil rights” investigation was ignorant and premature. The media, GOPe and progressives, trained by decades of group think and poor education, view Civil Rights as the exclusive property of groups such as blacks, women, LGBT, illegal aliens, etc. The First Amendment doesn’t say that. It says “ensuring that there is no prohibition on the abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble, or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances”. By the GOVERNMENT. What are a city and cops? Government. What did Charlottesville do? Violated the First Amendment and a court order.

    Mayor Signor, after I did a quick googler, see that he likes to have citizens thrown out of his city council meetings for back sassy talk and bringing up things like his gifting city funds to Obama for America. He uses the cops to do it. He is very strategic and flexible in his use of cops. But his “muscle” leak like old garden hoses tattling him out. And now they are saying he issued a “stand down” order to cause maximum damage very tactically one could say. Exactly like several other very progressive cities in the past few years. Baltimore mayor allowing a place to riot is an example.

    So I’ve not mentioned the people who died. A young woman and two law enforcement officers. I would posit all three died because of a stand down order if one works back via cause and effect. The police didn’t clear the streets because of a stand down order which was a political action. And the state law enforcement were watching for hours from the air because the stand down order didn’t let law enforcement clear clear everyone out in an orderly fashion so someone had to watch them. Tragedy and probably preventable.

    The progressives are doubling down. Targeting and denying a group civil rights is proceeding even if there is some proof it backfired for them in 2016. Never mind that. They are betting it will work in 2017 and going forward. They hope. But turning whites, even stupid and disgusting ones, into a persecuted and targeted small majority is dangerous. The shift from “individuals” to another identity group is fraught with consequences they don’t understand. Just like with Trump’s election. Cause and effect. Identity politics and dehumanization of what they perceive to be opposition. Preference cascades start cooking up. They have no idea where it will lead.

    You are exactly right. It was a set up from the beginning. An exercise in political theater with a deadly outcome. And the purpose was to confirm their tiresome narrative that Trump and his followers are racists. Why else would big media condemn him when he issues a statement condemning violence on all sides, when all sides were in pare delicto? Why else would they label him a bigot for not focusing his condemnation on those who applied for a lawful permit rather than those who issued it, told the police to stand down, and exonerate the real terrorists namely the BLM/antifa anarchists who engage in violence routinely, and big media routinely ignores because they are co conspirators. Let us hope when the Sessions Justice Department commences a civil rights investigation by non Obama holdovers, it turns the kleigh lights on the real dark movers behind the scene, and boils them in oil.

    They are one trick ponies. It is very tiresome and unimaginative and repetitive . Doing the same thing over and over with only tiny variations doesn’t work any longer. I think they are running out of gas. The rationalizations to withhold tax payer financed police protection for a legally protected assembly should be interesting. They bad me good is not going to cut it.

  42. The dim, big media, anarchist brigades are agent provocateurs in an endless stream of violence, city by city, and this combustible spectacle will not end until they are terminated with extreme prejudice. The full weight of the federal government needs to come down on these traitors like a ton of bricks. When big media actively promotes violence they forefeit the protections of the 1st Amendment. For lest we forget these are not patriots with printing presses in their basement protesting excesses of the British crown–which was the group Jefferson sought to protect. These are mutlinational businesses doing the bidding of the whores that run them, protecting their own feifdoms, and bringing down the republic, while claiming protections they do not deserve. If the goal of that amendment, as reinterpreted by Justice Holmes was to encourage robust debate, these people use their market power to suppress that objective, in favor of an Orwellian narrative congenial to their interests and those of their sponsors, and to their hidden lust for world government.

    Being fascist at heart, they are inclined to promote the big lie, and sell it through endless repetition, while slandering those who disagree. But as Roger Simon suggests they are too drunk on hate to realize that it did not work with the dirty dossier, Russian collusion, and it will not work here. The real opportunity however is to show the American Public what the real game is here, and your analysis is an excellent starting point. This is the latest greatest version of burn baby burn strategy of the last generation of anarchist and criminals, which handed Nixon the presidency, and lost the south.

  44. Graham harpoons those weak kneed sophomoric tools of special interests who promised to repeal Obmacare, reneged, and now hope to force the spotlight away from their own malfeasance and misfeasance. The smart play for Trump would be to name ALL the guilty parties, government, dims and anarchists, as well as the right wing boys, and let them argue that the former are innocent as the driven snow. Let them answer questions like after seeing what occurred in other parts of the country, where Trump supporters were attacked by antifa thugs, why did they issue the permit? Knowing that violence was likely why did they order the police to stand down? Seeing how the gate swings only one way with big media, why should anyone take their bromides seriously? And are the RINOs not exactly like the tin pot dictator who cannot run his own country, therefore he creates external chaos to hide his own failures, on, for example Obamacare.

    Franklin Graham: ‘Shame on Politicians’ for Blaming Trump

    By Jeffrey Rodack | Monday, 14 Aug 2017 07:33 AM
    ——
    Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, sharply criticized politicians who are blaming President Donald Trump for the violence in Charlottesville, Va.

    Graham’s comments came in a posting on his Facebook page.

    Three people were killed and 35 injured after protests by white supremacists and counter demonstrations became violent, McClatchy newspaper reported.

    “Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts,” Graham said. “Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity. I denounce bigotry and racism of every form, be it black, white or any other>

    Graham called on the nation to come together and turn to God.

    “We are stronger together, and our answers lie in turning to God,” Graham said.

    And he added: “Continue to pray for peace and for all those impacted by Saturday’s tragedies.”

  45. I’m in my usual fight on FB, lol, generally it’s with my sisters left wing friends, she too is left, wayyy left.
    I apparently am sick with no compassion because a girl
    Died and it was Trumps fault on and on.

    Truth is an inconvenience to them

  46. That statement giving big media what they wanted—whites are the root of all evil, and not holding all parties accountable will be the end of his presidency. They now own him, lock stock and barrel. He let the same people who have been attacking his supporters off the hook.

  47. Dead man walking politically. I do not object to condemning the nazis etc. just as long as he condemns the anarchists of the left by name in the same breath. I feel like I have wasted the past nine years.

  48. The root of the problem is with those who preach unity and practice identity politics. That is a non sequitur. And it is the last bastion of scoundrels. If Trump is going to name one group it is imperative that he name the others who are equally responsible. The problem is not hate, that goes to the issue of thought and government cannot control our thoughts. Actions are a different matter, and when those actions produce violence then that must be deterred. The left and the right are both guilty of violence, and we saw it here. Finally, Trumps bullshit that we must love each other is mawkish and the worst form of tripe. Why should we love people who hate this country? Does Trump love Hillary? It is sickening to listen to. And he made the mistake of falling for it. All I ever asked is that he condemn all the responsible parties in the same breath. I will go this far. I will blame white people myself as long as it is clear that what we are talking about is rich white people, jews and gentiles alike, who promote this crap to feather their own nest.

  49. I thought Trump talked smart.

    This statement contains all the requirements yet goes on to include BLM, Antifa …” And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the K.K.K., neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
    He DID make a big stink about saying muslim islamic terrorists.

    Here we hear TheWall: ” and we will work together so that every citizen ..
    And BOOM: “And as I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws. We all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.”

    That has to aggravate lots. Yet the denizens may hesitate to challenge that as whitey hestates to fully describe BLM for publication.

    Well perhaps.

    But that is not how it is being reported.

    Frankly, 90% of the threat civil society faced today comes from the left, and the useful idiots who support them.

    We need to have a debate focusing on that group.

  51. I can’t stand it when Trump gives the Left what they want

    They won’t stop till he is neutered completely or out of office…probably neutered AND out of office

    Clearly he knows that…

    Doesn’t he?

  52. FoxNews Reporter Doug McKelway: Source Says Cops Were Ordered to Make No Arrests Without Explicit Prior Approval of Mayor; Police Evacuated Site Because it Was “Too Dangerous”
    —Ace

    His reportage, briefly:

    * “We have learned from a senior law enforcement source from other county, who was here [in Charlottesville]… that officers were instructed to make no arrests without the explicit approval of the Charlottesville mayor. Our law enforcement source says that he was outraged by that instruction.”

    The Charlottesville chief of police categorically denied this.

    * However, McKelway says: “I can say, havig been in Emancipation Park from early on that morning, that what I saw with my own two eyes confirms what this law enforcement source told us. At least from all visible apearances. We saw people coming out of that park who had headwounds, who were bleeding from the head, people walking into that park with bats, with sticks — you saw what they were wearing — helmets, body armor, they had come — and this pertains to both sides — they had come to do damage.. you cannot help but notice from that video that police had been more pro-active, they could have potentially calmed this thing down to some degree.”

    * He was told during the day that if reporters had to, they could retreat to the police staging area. However, when protesters began throwing tear gas and the reporter tried to take shelter in the staging area, he was told he could not come in, the police said “No, don’t come in here… we’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.”

    He says you can see the police “filing out of there, single fire, and making a beeline out of there.” The chief of police says they were “making a retreat” to put on riot gear, but the reporter wants to know that having seen people with bats and armor, why were they not already wearing riot armor?

    Conclusion: Once again, a liberal mayor gives progressive shock troops Space to Destroy and orders police to stand down and allow them to beat the shit out of people #ForPeace.

    By the way, the Charlottesville Chief of Police made this racist statement:

    That’s racist, because, see, the media told me that when Trump said there was violence on “many sides” that was racist.

    And when I say ‘The media,” I expressly include the “conservative” media, who is making sure their liberal friends, corporate donors, and future employers know that they would never say something so racist like “Antifa is violence and beats the shit out of people with tacit approval of liberal city’s police forces.”

  53. The only difference between staged fights like the one in Charleston and the gladiator contests promoted by guards in our prisons is in the first case they are planned in the Brownstones of the upper east side, the DNC, and the Open Society Institute in conjunction with the CIA and the Rand Institute, whereas in the latter case they are arranged by prison guards. Both control groups bet heavily on the outcome, and the name for this on the Upper East Side is “the game”. Both are prime examples of corruption. This is what the Justice Department needs to get into, because these are, in fact, the dark movers behind the entire scene of iniquity.

  54. Russia gets the story
    Jason Kessler, organiser of Saturday’s ‘Unite the Right’ rally, has been punched in Charlottesville.
    The former Daily Caller writer and far-right activist, was giving a press conference, during which he was drowned out by angry protesters chanting, “Shame, shame, shame,” as well as cries of “fascist” and “murderer.”
    Kessler’s response was to say that “the hate that you hear around you, that is the anti-white hate that fueled what happened yesterday.” He then went on to blame police officers for the car attack by alleged white supremacist, 20 year old James Alex Fields, saying: “What happened yesterday was a result of the Charlottesville police officers refusing to do their job. They stood down and did not follow through with the agreed security arrangements.”
    Just under three and a half minutes into Kessler’s speech, he was approached by two protesters, one of whom is heard shouting, “Indict for murder now.” Then more protesters gathered around Kessler and seconds later he was seen fleeing, following a punch by a large man in a checked shirt.
    More. (video and tweets, final paragraph which I choose not to cite)

    As early as 2008 primary it became obvious Obama will not tolerate the right. (He had his paid goons emailing protests to WGN radio airing a Fredosso? interview.)

  55. This entire event was imo foreseeable and avoidable but it would not serve the agenda of the violent leftists , MSM and Congress trying to paint Trump as tacitly supporting white supremacist . To have these two groups marching right next to each other with no police action clearly would and did result in violence and tragedy. Just like when the cops were forced to stand down and let businesses destroyed because they thought it would be worse if they didn’t allow the thugs to vent. Sadly, the Trump miracle has become a nightmare and I do not see him lasting 4 years. The deep state is just too powerful even for a man as powerful as Donald J. Trump. I am sorry to be pessimistic, but lets face it, Mueller is going to find anything to get Trump out. Welcome back Speaker Pelosi and Senate leader Schumer, and truthfully Ryan and Mcconnell deserve losing the majority. They completely failed to do what they promised for 7 years under Obama who is laughing his a– off .

  56. 8 PM & time for Tucker Carlson.

    Since “internet” records of every kind are obtained as a normal course of business in criminal investigations and a judge already issued the subpoena, this belated “oh shit” and cries of civil liberties is amusing. Criminal conspiracy doesn’t meet free speech nor freedom of assembly standards.
    If DOJ has subpoenaed this provider they have already got the goods from others. This puts the over the top screaming by the virtue signaling crowd from the past few days in perspective. They are caught.

    As a one time liberal but now conservative politically Jew, I think it is disgusting how the left is trying to paint anyone who has pride in the confederate flag as racists. Off course we all can agree white supremacists and KKK are scum and looked for trouble at taht rally. BY I also agree the left has become intolerant of any flag, particularly the American flag, unless it has rainbows on it. Unlike the Nzai flag which stood for aryan superiority and genocide, the Confederate flag was a symbol of states rights and while the practice of slavery is an abomination we all condemn , millions of Southerners died carrying that flag not to support slavery, but what they, for better or worse, thought was their way of life. WE cannever forgert the atrocities of slavery, but lets not blame everyone who ever had a confederate flag or sticker on his pick up as a racist.

    As an aside, I remember going to a Stones show in GA many years ago and my friend made special baseball caps with the Stones tongue over a confederate flag. I thought it was fantastic but a few years ago I stopped wearing it as I figured somoene would sucker puncg me or worse!!!

    Absolutely right JB.

    In point of fact, ninety per cent (99%) of those who fought under that flag were NOT slaveholder. Not slaveholder.

    Why is this important?

    Simple:

    If they were not slave holders then they must have had some other motive for fighting and dying for the ante bellum South.

    You get a wiff of it when you visit their graveyards.

    In east Texas in the countryside outside the city of Palestine there is just such a graveyard.

    And above that graveyard, there is an inscription in stone which sheds important light on the real motive.

    It reads:

    “To the sons of the confederacy who gave their lives fighting a tyrannical and oppressive federal government.”

    This country is built upon a Christian foundation which give great weight to the individual, and honors those who stand up to the herd.

    The left is all about the herd, and it draws is essence from the basest of human instincts, those we share with the animal species.

    And it uses those base instincts to herd us in the direction it wants. Whether it is Trotsky or that fucking Obama that is always the game.

    At the dawn of the twentieth century, the left fell in love with Bolshevisim, and a New York Bank–the Shiff family was its main financier. There was a NYT writer who visited the USSR and proclaimed it as the vangard of the future, and that was their party line for an entire generation.

    The elites always believe they can ride the tiger and the tiger will devour everyone but them. Well, even Seigffried and Roy found that sooner of later, the Tiger wants the caviar and will no longer settle for the gruel.

    My earnest hope is to encourage the tiger to devour them first, rather than last, because that would save lives, and would give them some skin in “the game” which might cause them to behave responsibly. I mean that only half in jest, because there is no other way to wake them up.

    Here is the rub: communism failed eventually because it failed the test of reality. As Hamlet noted there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in (their) philosophy, and that is what eventually caused that system to fail.

    The progessive we see today is a born again communist, who substitutes identity politics for class struggle, and because it has made this transition the elites support them. Not only has this taken the sword of damoncles off their heads, but it has given them a tool to exploit their countrymen.

    That is the game, and the public like Gaul can be divided in three parts: Those who support the left to enhance their power and profit, secure in the notion that while the heavens my fall, they will be protected; those who see the game and hope to persuade those in power to avoid those paths which lead only to despair and from which no one ever returns, e.g. the gulag. And last, but not least the legions of useful idiots of the left, easily seduced through their base instincts into doing a host of things to bring down the country.

  71. This ridiculous public whipping of Trump for not calling out the “right Alt” when it was the Left that didn’t have a permit, cops stood down and literally walked away- why are we paying their salaries tell me, mayor and Governor were in cahoots to set this perfect storm up…YET

    When Muslims and Black people murder police, did they EVER ask the fraud to denounce BLM or Muslim terrorists? Hell no.
    And just recently a Democrat shoot a Congressman and a Democrat killed his neighbor for. Ring a Trump suppprter… crickets…

    Don’t give them anything Trump, I have come to hate these people, hate them…

  72. LOVE THIS PRESIDENT!!!

    Combative Trump at Press Conference: Does the Alt-Left Bear Any Responsibility For Their Own Violence?

    Full presser here.

    Some of the things he says:

    * When asked about a claim that the “alt-right” is pushing attacks against McMasters, Trump says, “Why said that? You mean Senator McCain? The one who voted against Obamacare?”

    * He then asks the press to define “the alt-right,” and asks about the “alt-left which came charging at them.”

    * Notes that there’s a very violent “alt-left” and the media refuses to even mention that. Goes on: “You had a group on the other side who came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent.”

    * Tells a guy — probably Jim Acosta — to shut up, then calls him “Fake News.” It’s something like “You quiet down FakeNews.”

    * On statues, which Jim Acosta, I’m given to understand, is a great fan of, and leftists pulling them down, wants to know if George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are next.

    * The media continued to ask many arguments on behalf of their pet stormtroopers, “antifa.” People asked arguments about the “alt-left” (antifa) and the white supremacists not being “on the same moral plane.” The media are obviously great fans of antifa, and is not even pretending to pretend they’re not great fans.

    * On statues being pulled down, and whether George Washington is next: “They’re changing our culture, they’re changing our culture.”

    * I’m sure Steven Hayes is getting ready to smear Mollie Hemingway as living in an “alternate reality” again, even though there is video of black-clad antifa clubbing the shit out of people with short-sticks and bats. A well-trained dog understands it is meant to bite its master’s enemies, and never its master’s friends.

    * He spoke about infrastructure and reducing permitting time from 17 years to 2 years. Asked at the end what he thought would help racial healing, he returned to that topic: “Jobs,” he said.

  74. Stanford University Researchers Find That Cops Who Are Polite To Black Drivers Are Actually Being Disrespectful…Or Something
    —CBD

    Heather MacDonald eviscerates the study in her article in the current “City Journal.” Conjuring Disrespect: A much-touted study of Oakland police shows researchers’ determination to find racism, not cops’ bias. I Like MacDonald, even though she is a bit gung-ho in her defense of policing in America. But her criticisms are right on target.
    The attempt to find systemic police bias has come to this: the difference between an officer saying “uh” and saying “that, that’s.” According to Stanford University researchers, police officers in Oakland, California, use one of those verbal tics more often with white drivers and the other more often with black drivers. If you can guess which tic conveys “respect” and which “disrespect,” you may have a career ahead of you in the exploding field of bias psychology.

    I’m no fan of the current trend in America, which is to allow the militarization of police, and turn a blind eye to the obvious issues of unbridled use of force and tolerance of aggressive and sometimes illegal behavior. But that doesn’t mean that cops are racists…it means that some of them are jerks. And the rest of them — the ones who tolerate the lawlessness of the few — are also culpable. But it is pretty clear that the cops in Oakland who were tarred as racist were actually behaving in a rational, controlled and intelligent manner. Tailoring how they speak to people based on the crazy notion that everyone is a bit different seems to me to be the smart way to do it.
    But the study’s conclusion was no doubt written before the data were analyzed. The authors knew what they were going to find, so really, it was just going through the motions.

    I recall a study published last year that discovered some interesting facts: On the most extreme use of force – officer-involved shootings – we find no racial differences in either the raw data or when contextual factors are taken into account.

    But that’s based on numbers and objective data that can’t really be massaged too much. Feelings are much easier to manipulate, and Stanford’s researchers certainly did a bang-up job of that!

To protect the political class?? NFW. The political class needs to feel the effects of the misguided policies they pursue. Put differently, the political class is not worth saving.

    SMOKING GUN: Mueller Deputy Admits to Trump Take Down! Dick Morris reports:

  78. Mueller May Have Been Illegally Appointed to Job, Legal Expert Says

    by Rachel Stockman | 5:54 pm, July 27th, 2017

    It’s pretty clear that Trump is not a fan of special counsel Robert Mueller. There have been reports that he’s even considering firing him or at least getting someone from DOJ to do it for him. According to one legal expert, he might not need to do that.

    Douglas W. Kmiec, a law professor at Pepperdine University School of Law and former constitutional legal counsel for both Ronald Reagan and George Bush, has a very interesting argument: Robert Mueller may have been illegally or unconstitutionally appointed to the job.

    “The president has a point, this is a complex idea. He is basically saying, hey look, something doesn’t seem right, and he might be right,” Kmiec said in an interview with LawNewz.com.

    Kmiec says that Trump might be going down the wrong legal path by asking about pardons. Instead, he should be focusing on the constitutionality of the special counsel’s appointment.

    Kmiec raised three main points to justify this:

    1) Mueller has no oversight

    Kmiec contends that Mueller is not being properly supervised because of the “flimsy” way in which he was appointed. After all, Comey said during Congressional testimony that he had leaked a memo about Trump trying to squash the investigation in order to get a special counsel appointment. On top of that, he says, it doesn’t appear Mueller has any direct supervision.

    Sessions recused himself, and under the same theory, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has effectively recused himself because of his involvement in the process by writing a memo to Trump recommending James Comey be fired. So who exactly is Mueller accountable to? If he doesn’t have a boss, then the Constitution requires that he be confirmed by the Senate like all other executive appointees.

    2) President’s presumption of guilt

    There is also an issue of a presumption of guilt. Most legal experts agree that a sitting president can not be indicted. The manner by which the special prosecutor was appointed skirts awfully close to an indictment, in the eyes of the law, Kmiec contends.

    He wrote in a recent opinion piece:

    The special counsel has not formally indicted Trump. But given Comey’s hair-trigger assumption that Trump was up to no good, and the way the special counsel process defines the president as a wrongdoer before any wrong is established, the investigation itself is arguably equivalent to an unconstitutional indictment.

    3) There appears to be little “specific and credible” information to open an investigation in the first place

    This one requires a little back story. In 1988, the U.S. Supreme Court took up a case in which Assistant Attorney General Ted Olson challenged the constitutionality of Independent Counsel Act. Ultimately, the court found it did not conflict with the seperation of powers. However, the law expired in 1999, and the new regulations have never faced rigorous legal scrutiny, and if they did, they probably wouldn’t meet constitutional muster.

    “Under the expired law, independent counsels were appointed by a special three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals, but only after the attorney general conducted a preliminary investigation based on ‘specific and credible’ information about alleged wrongdoing by the president,” Kmiec wrote. Kmiec contends that none of these careful steps exist in the current regulations, and “there are no signs that in the wake of Sessions’ recusal, a constitutionally sufficient process triggered the Mueller appointment.”

    http://lawnewz.com/legal-analysis/legal-analysis-legal-analysis/mueller-may-have-been-illegally-appointed-to-job-legal-expert-says/

    ……

    There are several links included in this article containing in depth discussion of the author’s opinion at the above link.

  79. How Trump could stop the Russia investigation — on constitutional grounds

    President Trump wants to put an end to the Department of Justice’s Russia inquiry. He has questioned whether he can pardon himself and whether Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions should have recused himself from the investigation.

    The president is a fighter, but he’ll need to pick his fight. Expressing annoyance with his attorney general and daydreaming about pardoning himself won’t do. Sessions’ recusal merely reflects that no one can investigate himself, and the embarrassing idea that a president may grant his own pardon has been consistently rejected by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel.

    There is, however, another question the president has every reason to be asking: Is the post of special counsel, a Department of Justice administrative creation, itself constitutional? The appointment of Robert S. Mueller III is open to reasonable doubt.

    To begin with, the role of the special counsel cannot be justified by the Supreme Court’s 8-1 approval of the earlier independent counsel law, which was passed in 1978 and expired in 1999. The high court’s dissenter was Justice Antonin Scalia, and subsequent precedent and scholarship acknowledge that Scalia had the better argument. Indeed, Congress let the law expire because, as Scalia reasoned, it made it too easy to falsely call one’s political opponent a crook. (Both Republicans and Democrats were equally happy to see the law sunset.)

    Under the expired law, independent counsels were appointed by a special three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals, but only after the attorney general conducted a preliminary investigation based on “specific and credible” information about alleged wrongdoing by the president. Under the old law, if there were “no reasonable grounds” after the preliminary investigation, that was reported to the court and the matter ended. These careful first steps are not explicit in the Justice Department’s current special counsel regulations, and there are no signs that in the wake of Sessions’ recusal, a constitutionally sufficient process triggered the Mueller appointment.

    Statutorily appointed independent counsels also had an obligation to make reports to the appointing court every six months. In order to expand the boundaries of an investigation, they had to get the approval of the attorney general and notify the court. The court decided what reports were made public or sent to Congress. By comparison, Mueller appears to be operating unilaterally.

    News reports indicate that Mueller is directing White House personnel to retain documentation and that he’s going after Trump’s tax returns. Those suspicious of the president insist upon the necessity of this line of inquiry, but they skip over whether a politically unaccountable, unconfirmed special counsel may constitutionally make such demands.

    Another basic objection can be raised about the special counsel. Scalia noted that employing an independent counsel stands criminal practice on its head: The normal order is crime first, ascertain the guilty second. Mueller’s appointment originated with former FBI Director James Comey’s ethically dubious press leak and his apparent presumption of the president’s bad intent. Perhaps preidentification of guilt was considered acceptable under the independent counsel law because it also mandated protections against abuse, but again, Mueller’s administrative appointment isn’t subject to such checks.

    An Oct. 16, 2000, memorandum, by then-Assistant Atty. Gen. Randolph D. Moss, affirmed the Office of Legal Counsel view going back as far as 1818: A sitting president cannot be indicted and criminally prosecuted. The special counsel has not formally indicted Trump. But given Comey’s hair-trigger assumption that Trump was up to no good, and the way the special counsel process defines the president as a wrongdoer before any wrong is established, the investigation itself is arguably equivalent to an unconstitutional indictment.

    Indicting a sitting president is unconstitutional because it gives insufficient weight to the people’s considered choice of chief executive. Presidents can be subject to civil litigation (such as Paula Jones’ suit against President Bill Clinton) but not to the burden and stigma of a criminal case. In the words of the Office of the Legal Counsel, “To wound the president by criminal proceeding is to hamstring the operation of the whole government apparatus, both in foreign and domestic affairs.”

    Why have those advising Trump not raised these fundamental questions? Perhaps it is because his advisors, like the president, are more familiar with business law — transactional law — where the ingenuity of legal counsel combines with investment savvy to achieve a success memorialized in a contract. Business law and constitutional practice are not the same, and the president is not well served if his advisors do not make that clear.

    That the application of the Constitution is not a matter of commercial arm-wrestling might seem to the disadvantage of a president whose measure is “the art of the deal,” but it is not. Moreover, asking basic questions about the constitutionality of the special counsel’s appointment does not place the president above the law; it merely gives him the benefit of it.

    Douglas W. Kmiec teaches constitutional law at Pepperdine University. He was principal deputy and then head of the Office of the Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice from 1985 to 1989.

  82. United Right leader was actually an Obama supporter and Occupy activist according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Agent provocateur. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Jump to: navigation, search. … An agent provocateur (French for “inciting agent”) is a person who commits, or who acts to entice another person to commit an illegal or rash act or falsely implicate them in partaking in an illegal act.

    Given Muellers unlimited hunting license, given to him by that politoon Rosenstein, I am sure Mueller will be keen to delve into this matter. No? Oh, that’s right. He is a fucking agent of the deep state, and he is there to protect them and bring down a properly elected president. If you saw the link with Morris, they have some of this on tape. Given this disclosure, one might assume that this was a deep state operation.

    I have felt the same way, what are we paying the police for if they refuse to do their job and protect the citizens?
    There seems to be this horrible collusion in these blue cities and states and , not being a lawyer, what can be done about it if the Supreme Court has already ruled against the citizens?

    1. move infrastructure around the blue state mayors so they cannot claim credit, hope they oppose it, and then ram that refusal down their throats.

    2. videos pointing out the hypocrisy of corrupt regimes in place like Chicago, that take away citizen guns, and then fail to protect them in life threatening situations. Only a fool abides by the rule of law when the authorities abuse it.

    3. withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, and if the obama appointed jurists rule this is illegal, let those cities starve.

    Trumps manufacturing advisory councils disbanded…
    —————–
    No surprise there.

    These CEOs are a bunch of cowards who caved to public opinion.

    Remember what happened immediately after Trump made his “they’re rapists” statement?

    Same thing. It’s just cowardice and kowtowing to public opinion.

    And now these CEOs get to keep their factories offshore, blaming it all on Trump’s “racism”.

  86. Keep your eye on TV. I just tuned in to Fox Shepard Smith referring to spasm of hate, Mitch and Ryan shaming Trump. Sickened, I turned it off.

    Police: Charlottesville Was ‘Inside Job’ To Ignite Race War
    …“We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to stop the driver as he sped away.“

    “The event was being set up as far back as at least May and it went like clockwork….”
    Considerably more there.

    Hoping this bears fruit.

  92. This is, far and away, the best Tucker Carlson episode EVER.

    The interview with Mark Steyn is stellar. The focus is upon Google, which has acquired monopoly power over the distribution of information, captured all the personal date of seven billion people on its server, and are censoring political views which do not fit their Orwellian narrative. These people are, in fact, Nazis in the purest sense of the term, and left unchecked they will force those whose views are stifled, to shoot people and burn down buildings. I do not worry so much that they would shoot people, so much as I worry that they would shoot innocent ones, which is the whole problem with drumshead justice. Coco Channel (promise her anything but give her channel, etc.) slept with the high ranking Nazis during the war, but when street mobs formed after the liberation of Paris, she prevailed upon her friend Churchill who she called Winnie to spire her out of the danger zone, while 30,000 less culpables were hung or set afire by lawless mobs. It is high time that Google was brought before Congress the same way JP Morgan was, publicly humiliated, and subjected to government regulation. Tucker worries that this prescription conflicts somehow with his pro capitalist philosophy. The thing to realize however is that these are not capitalists, they are monopolists, and this is the only way to break the Orwellian cycle of inverted totalitarianism and managed democracy described and at the same time deplored by Professor Sheldon Walin.

  93. I saw the topic of Google on a previous night. sobering.

    Did anyone watch Hannity tonight?
    I have some tidbits but verify first if you’re taking them somewhere else.
    Geraldo affirmed existence of an AltLeft element. Since G20 Seattle. (Pls factcheck if you’re passing it on. TY)

    Last up were two Fox contributors. The man told that violence was anticipated in Charlottesville, and a judge had been approached for change of venue. Judge would not grant it.

    Pennsylvania Governor Rallies Anti-Trump Group
    http://www.philly.com/philly/news/politics/presidential/Pa-governor-rallies-nascent-anti-Trump-group-in-Philly.html
    “We need to take this nation back,” Governor Wolf said
    His comments drew applause from more than 300 people at the Unitarian Society of Germantown on Lincoln Drive.
    The group that gathered in that church is part of a national movement called Indivisible:
    http://www.indivisibleguide.com/about-us/
    When we put the Indivisible Guide online as a poorly formatted, typo-filled Google Doc, we never imagined how far and fast it would spread. More than 4,500 local groups have signed up to resist the Trump agenda in nearly every congressional district in the country. What’s more, you all are putting the guide into action—showing up en masse to congressional district offices and events, and flooding the congressional phone lines. You’re resisting—and it’s working.

  96. Democrats are on edge over Hillary Clinton’s forthcoming book that is likely to dredge up the controversies surrounding her 2016 defeat to President Trump, just as the out-of-power party is trying to “move on” and chart a course back to the majority. The former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady who added Democratic presidential nominee to her resume last year apparently isn’t done with public life.

  97. A left wing attempt to boycott a performance of the Santa Monica Symphony due to a guest appearance by conservative radio host Dennis Prager backfired on Wednesday night; the event was a sellout. The symphony put on a fundraising concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles.
    Prager served as a guest conductor at the invitation of the orchestra’s director.
    Prager has made controversial comments in the past

    Prager: Fake is larger threat to west than Putin is.
    Opinion in the guise of news.
    Prager’s only regret is that he did not include universities in a tweet that brought him much attention. .

  98. I just realized another reason why we need to keep the Confederate statues.

    To help remind us of the 620,000 Americans who died in the Civil War.

    That’s almost as many as died in all other wars combined.

    And I believe we’re headed toward civil war again.

    God help us all.

  99. Too much pearl clutching here. Trump is fighting and the swamp is fighting back. Period. Nobody is having a civil war except the talking heads on the boob tube.

    May their heads all explode.

    The Leftist Meltdowns Continue: Therapists Report A Massive Spike In Patients Suffering From “President Trump Stress Disorder”

    There’s only one thing that has been constant throughout the duration of Trump’s presidency, and that is the reaction of the people who oppose him. Time after time the Left has responded to Trump’s actions and words with unfettered fear, paranoia, and highly publicized meltdowns. His mere presence in the White House seems to leave them hyperventilating, sobbing, and lashing out at anyone dares to support him, or even refuses to denounce him.

    Believe it or not, the emotional vulnerability of these people hasn’t improved since he took office earlier this year. The New York Daily News recently interviewed several doctors and therapists around the country, and found that they’ve seen a huge spike in patients who have been freaking out about President Trump. Apparently, these medical professionals are referring to their anxiety as “President Trump Stress Disorder.”
    http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/the-leftist-meltdowns-continue-therapists-report-a-massive-spike-in-patients-suffering-from-president-trump-stress-disorder_08162017

  100. Can you believe Orrin Hatch defending Trump? Mitch and Mitt and others have been courting Orrin to retire from Senate. Should he do that, Mitch has stated he’ll support a Romney campaign for the seat (yeah) and give Romney favors once he’s in Senate. So-o-o-o It’s surprising to me that Orrin spoke up. I don’t know origin of video.

    hmmm similar vein published by ABC WashEx and Newsmax. Just noticing when I spell-checked his name.

  101. TUNE IN! Panama’s President, @JC_Varela, and I hold a joint press statement in Panama City -> http://45.wh.gov/erPDUg #VPinPanama TIME STAMP 37 seconds

    VP was going to cut this trip short due to Trump situation but I don’t think he did.

  102. Breitbart
    Many of the companies whose CEOs resigned from the White House’s advisory councils saw significant declines. Shares of J.P. Morgan Chase fell 1.56 percent. Walmart shares were off by 1.58%. 3M shares sunk 1.24 percent. Shares of Under Armour fell 2.04 percent. Shares of Merck, whose CEO was the first to leave the White House panel in the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville, Va., fell 1.37 percent.

  103. Steve Bannon is Nuts.. end of story.

    Have to say when Trump said he would hire the BEST people I believed him, but boy have there been mistakes!

  104. The leftists are defacing Lincoln monuments according to big media. Question: who cares?

    The leftists are calling for the blowing up of Mount Rushmore, according to pjmedia.

    They now need to blow up the greatest monument of all to white supremacy: planned parenthood, which is causing genocide against women of color.

    Whoever said even a blind pig finds a truffle now and then had a point. The source of that last quote is Glenn Beck chanelling the NAACP, Southern Poverty Institute and Black Lives Matter.

    Ultimately, they will promote race war, and the answer to that conundrum is simple and straightforward

    God created men and women.

    And Smith and Wesson made them equal.

    And know the gun laws for self defense in your jurisdiction.

  105. The leftists are defacing Lincoln monuments according to big media. Question: who cares?

    The leftists are calling for the blowing up of Mount Rushmore, according to pjmedia.

    ———–
    Watched these disgusting thugs pull down that Confederate statue, then kick it and dance around it like a bunch of idiots.

    And they claim that they are doing it because they feel “offended” by the “painful” feelings that Civil War monuments evoke, and they just want to promote “healing”?

    Give me a break. These statues have been around for decades.

    These young punks would have us believe that time, rather than healing all wounds, rubs salt in them?

    Not buying it, sorry.

    Correction: NOT sorry.

  106. Too much pearl clutching here. Trump is fighting and the swamp is fighting back. Period. Nobody is having a civil war except the talking heads on the boob tube.

    May their heads all explode.
    ————–
    You’re right, Lu. You caught me in a moment of weakness.

    Fight on!!!

  107. Steve Bannon is Nuts.. end of story.

    Have to say when Trump said he would hire the BEST people I believed him, but boy have there been mistakes!
    —————-
    Not sure what Bannon’s motive was in doing that interview, but I don’t see how he can keep his job now.

    I expect he’ll be gone by the end of this month.

  108. Poor Spain horrible, just horrible…

    Monsters…I’m expecting some a$$goles to climb and dynamite Mount Rushmore, which will immediately be blamed on Trump…because he’s Trump of course and the blame for ALL the ills in the world.

    God help us all…

  109. Let’s not forget that Nikki Haley and her ilk in GOP already folded like a cheap suit on this issue with the confederate flag after Dylan Roof. Statutes were always going to be next, then books, etc.

    As to the HYSTERIA –I’m laughing my ass off. It’s like the election all over again. The MSM, Dems, NeverTrumps are literally using the exact same narratives that didn’t work the first time — his tweets, he’s damaged, isolated, campaign /White House in chaos, staff despondent, he’s a racist, he won’t disavow David Duke.

    Not only are these fools incapable of learning, they’re lazy and uncreative as well.

    As vile and disgusting as this scorched earth mode is, this is not the strategy of a sound or successful organization. Their gaslighting has rendered them all batshit insane.

    From a detached, clinical perspective – if one can remain safe – it is interesting to watch.

  110. DANA MILBANK REVEALS THE GAME

    In today’s Washington Post, Dana Milbank writes of the events in Charlottesville and/or the issue of monuments for Confederates: “It’s not a tough debate. It’s not a debate at all. There are Nazis and there are the rest of us.”

    Milbank is wrong. There are communists, anarchists, terrorists, and black racists. Those answering to any of these descriptions are not fairly characterized as belonging among “the rest of us.” There are also, as President Trump said, non Nazis and non racists who oppose having statues of Robert E. Lee removed from the public square.

    Left-wing violence is a growing problem in cities and college campuses across the U.S. Folks my age can’t help but be reminded of the late 1960s.

    Milbank wants to use Charlottesville to sweep the problem of left-wing violence under the rug. Thus, he places the antifa thugs alongside “the rest of us.”

    This tactic shows why it was important for President Trump to insist that violence and thuggery comes from both sides. He could have added that, to date, more violence and thuggery has come from the left than from the right, but under the circumstances I don’t blame him for choosing even-handed words.

  111. Now, it’s in print:
    “Instead of addressing our increasingly toxic political and social environment, the answer for the media and the political class was to pour more gas on the fire.
    “Suddenly, Mr. Trump was responsible for the carnage, and even worse, the Nazis on-site in Charlottesville were his base (we’re told), ergo all Mr. Trump’s supporters are Nazis, too. The intent from the start was to conflate the president and all conservatives with white supremacy and the obscenity in Charlottesville.”
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/aug/16/charlottesville-riot-brings-out-leftist-hatred-for/

  112. Well Flynn, Spicer, Preibus, Bannon…I’m sure I’ve missed a few

    Not going to count Comey…

    Breitbart followers very unhappy

    I knew he wouldn’t have come out with that idiot interview if he wasn’t leaving, one way or another…

  113. Now folks like Peggy Noonan and even Newt Gingrich are talking about how “isolated” the president is, how his approval rating is down to 1/3 of the country, how that’s not a base but a core, how you can’t get anything done with just a core of support behind you, how his presidency is teetering on the edge of failure.

    This just infuriates me.

    GOPe, if he’s isolated it’s YOUR fucking fault. You’ve been wishing for, and actively plotting, his destruction since day one. YOU have isolated him, because YOU want him to fail.

    Why not try supporting him for a change, and see what happens?

  114. I don’t think any of us imagined that the concerted efforts of both the left , right, MSM, and other NGO’s would be this effective so soon. Trump has not gotten the advice and guidance needed to navigate the “swamp” and it truly may not be “navigable” .. Too many unforced errors and ego are really hurting him. He had a great agenda of immigration reform, tax cuts, repeal and replace ACA and so far none have come to fruition. it’s very early but typically stuff gets done in the first term. Thank G-d he got Gorsuch in.

  115. Sorry to hear Newt say that because that’s what I’ve been thinking, he’s so isolated…
    Just this week Bannon, the Business Councils, as of they were ever supportive, all the might of the Globalists are on his head…
    Call me what you may, I am so sad… so very sad
    But I will forever support Trump and his agenda.
    Newt, join the freaking WH, Rudy he needs you too!

  116. JB
    I disagree. I don’t think they are really that effective. I fear for Trump’s safety because he’s traveling a dangerous road. I no longer think that its a swamp but rather a sewer.
    Make no mistake that this is about money and power. Trump is a huge threat to the sewer that is our government and the hope of a true Democratic Republic of the people.
    I think he’s incredibly brave and patriotic and may become one of our most important and transformational presidents.

    In the meantime I am walking away from many of my “liberal friends”. I think their behavior and attitudes are revolting. I no longer attend synagogue because they inject their poisonous politics which I see as the antithesis of Jewish values. I despise the smug attitudes and spreading of hate and lies.
    I do still think there will be a backlash. They try to bully Trump supporters like me into adopting their politics. However, when confronted, they know that I am not a deplorable, racist, Nazi (ridiculous) , homophobe etc……
    The biggest problem are the Republicans. We can hope in 2018 that enough will be primaried and replaced to get the Trump agenda…the people’s agenda…going. If not, we’re all in a whole lot of trouble.

  117. I agree with you . I have also walked away from most of my liberal friend, Jews or otherwise. For 44 years I thought the democratic party stood for tolerance and the working class. Little did I realize how intolerant and anti-working class the elite who run the party are. I still stand by Bill Clinton as the last true democratic president. Unfortunately, $$$$ got to his head after office.

  118. I was a big Clinton supporter and a Dem committeewoman but looking back with the knowledge I have today I don’t have a very positive take on his presidency.
    He was adept at dealing with the power elites. However, he was responsible for 2 terrible decisions IMHO. First was Nafta which destroyed what was left of American manufacturing. Second was signing the bill that allowed the gov to “borrow” / steal from the SS trust fund, which they have no intention of paying back. My generation of baby boomers created a Surplus in SS which would have taken good care of us as we retired. Bush used plenty of this money to blow up Iraq. SS has become a Ponzi scheme. I believe that’s one reason they want open borders and massive immigration….so that these people will pay the SS bill.

  119. Newt is on Hannity and making great sense. Trump needs to listen to him…
    Trump needs to regroup, rebuild his team, simplify and understand the opposition will NEVER give him a break. Newt wants Trump to find common ground with Ryan and McConnell, that will be incredibly hard in my opinion seemed as I believe they are part of the opposition, but they in reality all need each other to stay in power.
    He said he has talked to all of them…

  120. Optimist

    You are spot on. I think today is my last day on FB or Tweeter. I have lost what I thought were good friends the last 8 years. It still bothers me, I won’t lie, but obviously there were cracks I was too blind to see beforehand
    Can’t fix stupidhttp://legalinsurrection.com/2017/08/report-bannon-getting-the-boot-supposedly/comment-page-1/#comment-775511

  121. Are we back to believing bogus job approval polls and Trump-hater Peggy Noonan as indicators that it’s all over for Trump again? Even if it were true, retaining a third of the voters is pretty impressive considering the onslaught he’s taken for the last eight months.

    The economy is still the key. Let’s remember that, even without congress, the stock market is setting records, new businesses and millions of jobs are being created, North Korea has temporarily backed down from making threats, trade deals are being re-negotiated to benefit workers, and the tide of illegal immigration has been turned. The beneficiaries of these policies, many in rust-belt states, will remember. Dims will have a hard time flipping them with their “Better Deal”.

    Find common ground with Ryan and McConnell? Trump gave McConnell’s wife a freaking cabinet position, which should count for something, and Ryan is a forever Trump-hater and cannot be trusted ever. Trump ran against Congress, which is the swamp, and the only way that his agenda will be passed is if the Trump-haters are primaried and defeated next year. In the meantime, he’s doing what he can with the power that he has, and is accomplishing a lot.

    My biggest fear, at this point, is that he’ll get fed up and say “Screw this! Where’s the golf course?” although I know that won’t really happen.

  122. “For 44 years I thought the democratic party stood for tolerance and the working class.”

    They did. That was the party of FDR, Truman, Kennedy, and (maybe) Clinton.

    The Democratic party is now the party of misfits, weirdos, and “victims” of every stripe.

    The good news is that Trump is rebuilding the old Democratic party on top of the GOPe scrap heap.

    I pray he is successful.

  123. Julian Assange and Wikileaks have provided a lot of important information over the last few years but Assange is not a predictable person. It’s being reported that he’s seeking some kind of a deal (with Dana Rohrbacher as an intermediary) in exchange for providing proof that the source of the Wikileaks DNC email hack was not Russia (maybe Seth Rich?).

    That would be nice, but don’t forget that he also promised, late last year, that if the Trump DOJ didn’t re-open the Clinton investigation by the end of January, he (Assange) was going to release information that would result in Clinton’s incarceration. We’re still waiting for that one.

  124. Are we back to believing bogus job approval polls and Trump-hater Peggy Noonan as indicators that it’s all over for Trump again? Even if it were true, retaining a third of the voters is pretty impressive considering the onslaught he’s taken for the last eight months.

    No. I just find it depressing that GOPe pols and pundits can’t get behind their president.

    True so far, but there are many people (including Trump when he was campaigning) who think a severe correction is not only a real possibility but is overdue.

    Ryan and McConnell have some good points, but I can’t stand how they keep abandoning the president when the going gets tough. I think they need to go.

    My biggest fear, at this point, is that he’ll get fed up and say “Screw this! Where’s the golf course?” although I know that won’t really happen.

    Not a chance of that happening. That is literally the least of my worries.

  125. I literally hate Ryan and McConnell, hate them. But when Newt was speaking he made some sense to me. I’m not talking about trusting them, that will never happen, but outright war with them is not helping Trump either. I am sure Clinton and Newt had great animosity towards each other, and I am aware it was a different time, but both were smart enough to know there were things they had to work on together.
    Supreme Court Justice was one success Trump had with Mitch…
    I clearly don’t have any answers

  126. “I just find it depressing that GOPe pols and pundits can’t get behind their president.”

    Of course, I fully agree with that. But there’s too much money and power involved in being the ruling class and changing that situation will not be an overnight project, if it can be done at all. Too many people don’t want it to change.

    A market correction might be inevitable at some point, but what should Trump do? Let the economy tank in order to minimize the correction?

    I agree that Ryan and McConnell need to go since they don’t back the President but disagree that either has any good points. They’re both smug, arrogant, and disgusting liars and tools of the swamp. “Excessive expectations” indeed.

    Even if Trump stems illegal immigration, builds a wall, cuts taxes, creates a thriving economy, and fulfills all of his other promises, I still won’t be satisfied until at least a few high-level swamp dwellers are indicted and jailed for corruption. But that’s just me; it’s my big issue. 🙂

  127. …and now for a ray of good news…

    Dem Senator Menedez will be going on trial for corruption…very unseemly…
    He has indicated that he might resign, if guilty he will definitely be out
    Rep Gov Christie will appoint his replacement, most likely a Repub which will give the repubs that one much needed vote they needed when Traitor McCain voted no on Ocare…

    and hopefully a big help to PDT (Christie would probably appoint a Pro Trumper)
