  • Solution for Grassley and McConnell is Simple

    I am sure that both Grassley and McConnell are extremely frustrated by this constant delay and this obviously ploy that is nothing more than delay. They do not have to be played for fools. I think this can be easily salvaged. Here are the actions that should be taken. 1. Have Grassley take a firm stand to Ford and her lawyers then announce it to the public. a. We welcome Ford to testify and have given her ample opportunity to do so. While we have requested Monday, we will accept her appearance on Wednesday. b. We have bent over backwards...

    The United States was to begin construction in Texas on Saturday of part of President Donald Trump's border wall designed to curb illegal immigration, which he calls a security threat. Running along four miles (six kilometers) of the 2,000-mile border with Mexico, the new section will replace existing fencing along the boundary between El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, US Customs and Border Protection said in a statement. "This new wall will be far more durable and far more effective in deterring would-be illegal entrants," Aaron Hull, Chief Patrol Agent in the El Paso sector, said in the statement....

    This week, a New York Times story about a scheme in which Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would wear a “wire” to secretly record President Trump and recruit cabinet members to activate Trump’s removal from office under the provisions of the 25th Amendment was blasted as “inaccurate” and “factually incorrect” by Rosenstein. “It is shameful that a respected newspaper would rely on anonymous sources to defame me,” Rosenstein complained. “After all I have done to help the Times over the years acquire difficult to obtain information on sensitive topics from internal government archives, I can only regard this as a...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Man, what a week this was. The circus in Washington, DC reached an even higher fever-pitch than normal as the Democrat Party continues its efforts to literally destroy our nation from the inside out. It was the week that the funeral of one of the biggest film box office stars of all-time, Burt Reynolds, received almost no notice at all from a fake news media that remains laser-focused on carrying out the orders of its Democrat benefactors. It was a week in which the public got even more proof of the...
  • Conservatives claim media, Dems ignoring allegations against Ellison (BRAKING NEWS?)

    Politico ^ | 9/21/18 | JASON SCHWARTZ
    **SNIP** Led by opinion hosts on Fox News, conservative figures looking to call out liberal hypocrisy have seized on accusations by Ellison’s former girlfriend Karen Monahan that he emotionally abused her and, during a 2016 argument, yelled profanities at her and dragged her off a bed. They claim that the national press, while giving ‘round the clock coverage to an allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman when they were both in high school, has ignored Monahan’s more recent claims about Ellison — and so, they argue, has the Democratic Party. “Guess what? Prominent Democrats line up in support, believe...

    Breitbart - Big Government ^ | 9-22-2018 | Michelle Moons
    Vice President Mike Pence had a message for former President Barack Obama at the Values Voter Summit Saturday: the American economy is booming because the Trump administration is rolling back Obama administration policies. “It’s been two years of promises made and promises kept, and we’re just getting started,” Pence told the conference audience in Washington, DC. He cited more than four million jobs created since President Donald Trump took office, record low black and Hispanic unemployment, wages rising at the fastest pace in a decade, and the highest middle class income in recorded history. Pence said this did not just...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 09-22-18 | DrJohn
    Sen. Chuck Grassley has decided to give Christine Blasey-Ford one more day to decide if she wants to testify before the Judiciary committee. This is a bad idea. Ford did deserve a hearing, but she no longer does. Once Ford teamed up with Ricki Seidman, it became very clear that the intent here is to destroy Brett Kavanaugh as Seidman tried to do to Clarence Thomas. Ford and her legal team are engaged in chicanery. They've made asinine demands: Citing “sources,” Fox News’ Shannon Bream reports on the demands Christine Blasey Ford and her legal team are making as a condition for...

    Ha ha ha ha ha! Rod Rosenstein was kidding around with the guys about wearing a wire while meeting with the President in order to collect info that could set him up for removal under the 25th Amendment. Hee hee hee.  Just kidding! It was just a joke!You know what? In the real world people get fired for jokes every day. Take this poor bloke, who thought he’d signed out of his Chrysler account and into his personal Twitter account: Not only did poor Scott Bartosiewicz, a social media strategist for New Media Strategies, get fired but Chrysler declined to...
  • By Serving Kremlin rather than Christ, Moscow Patriarchate Now a Small National Church

    Blogger ^ | Sep 2018 | Ilya Zabezhinsky
    Ilya Zabezhinsky, an Orthodox commentator from the Northern capital [of St. Petersburg], says that the Russian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate by its promotion of the Kremlin’s agenda of “a Russian world” has failed in its Christian mission to the peoples of the former USSR and been reduced to a small national church of the Russian Federation. Under Patriarch Kirill and President Vladimir Putin, the writer says, the Russian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate has become “the ideological department of the powers that be of the Russian Federation and essentially ceased to be the Russian Orthodox Church. Instead,...

    Payback. We can do it. She's running against a young, whacko, hispanic lefty. If she wins she may not finish her term considering her age(85). We'd need a Republican Governor(unlikely) if she croaked midterm. I'd wait until the polls reveal Gavin Newsom a sure winner.

    Who the hell is Professor Ford to decide if and when the Senate will vote on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court? Ford contends that when she was 15 she and a girlfriend went to a beer party with four boys and wound up in bed with a teenaged Kavanaugh on top of her. She has conflated this into both attempted rape and potential homicide, raising his charges only to cast shade on his nomination in a cynical abuse of the system. Like Anita Hill before her, she can lie under oath with immunity -- who...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) All the BetoMania SJWs and snowflakes be all like “Say whaaaaaaattttt?”. – In their debate on the SMU campus Friday night, Texas Senator Ted Cruz forced gun-grabbing Democrat challenger Irish Bob O’Rourke into saying, multiple times, that “I fully support the second amendment.” No word if the all-abortion, all-the-time Congressman from El Paso also now claims to somehow be “pro-life”, but it would be an equally honest statement. Hooboy. 11/9 appears to be roughly its box office gross. – Michael Moore’s new Trump-bashing film, stupidly titled “Fahrenheit 11/9” is tanking at the...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the college professor who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of groping her at a drunken party in somebody's house near a park sometime in the early 1980s when both were high school students, has been resisting Republican requests for her to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) insists that "the Republican demand that it is the accuser's responsibility to tell her story to them is an attempt to silence her. Christine has already done her part to put the ball in play with her accusation. It is now Kavanaugh's job to...

    Refugees are not simply impoverished migrants. A refugee is defined, by a 1951 international convention, as a person who, “owing to well-founded fear of being persecuted … is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country.” The maximum number of refugees that the U.S. should accept in a given year is a fraught question. Dara Lind reports that in the final year of the Carter administration, federal officials settled on the answer 231,700. Under Reagan, the answer fluctuated between a high of 217,000...
  • The New York Times Claims Deputy AG Rosenstein Conspired to Remove Trump from Office Back in 2017

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    The failing NYT, to use President Trump’s own parlance, published an interesting article on Friday. The article claims (based on inside/anonymous sources of the best kind, obviously) that deputy AG Rosenstein, which is the actual attorney general of the United States, as Jeff Sessions recused himself from, well, everything, plotted/conspired to remove the POTUS from office in the spring of 2017. The bright plan concocted by Rosenstein was something along the lines of Trump cabinet members wearing recording devices during meetings with the POTUS. The respective recordings would have been made public at some point, and would have showed, beyond...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Event #1 – The newsfakers at the New York Times suddenly decided they needed to change the overriding narrative heading into the weekend, issuing an obvious bit of #fakenews claiming – according to anonymous sources, of course – that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein wanted to wear a wire to his meetings in mid-2017 with President Donald Trump, and also told Robert Mueller that he could recruit cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment as a way to remove Trump from office. Rosenstein blasted back with an outright, unqualified denial of both...
