  1. Libby says:

    So, how does this differ from, say, the local Rotary putting up a candidate for office.

    This approach is a little more “social media” than suits me … but that’s how the children do things.

    And if this is the CIA, they’s gonna get another ass-whuppin’ … for domestic meddling.

    • Post Scripts says:

      Libs, I think we are seeing the beginning of something new in elections and I don’t like it. I would like to see a real candidate, absent professional handlers crafting and all that scientific stuff aimed creating an image and cleaning up background, etc.

      • Libby says:

        And you don’t think OAC’s forthright manner is the real her? A little too real is what it is … the establishment is soiling itself … which is a good thing.

        • Post Scripts says:

          Libs, I think her persona is the real her and that she believes the words coming out of her mouth, but after that she’s lost. She lacks understand of the political world she was thrust into. This is the major leagues and she is at best a minor leaguer. If she survives long enough she may become worthy of her high position, but the odds are not good. She’s made enemies in high places and this is among her democrats colleagues, the GOP thinks she makes a wonder adversary! She is saying and doing exactly all the wrong things and when she goes off scripts she looks like an idiot. The GOP thinks this is wonderful.

    • Joe says:

      I highly doubt it. I know people in NY who assured me in 2018 she’d never get elected and at the time I thought they were right.

      The more manipulative and the better liars are the most successful politicians so I predict Ocrassio will be in Congress for decades, maybe even President one day.

  2. Chris says:

    Meanwhile, this is what the president had to say when asked about his recent blatherings about John McCain:

    “”I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don’t care about this. I didn’t get thank you. That’s ok. We sent him on the way, but I wasn’t a fan of John McCain.”

    The president is a sociopath. Focus.

    • Joe says:

      Trump is right. Good riddance. McCain was a loathsome crook.

      Remember the Keating 5? Well, McCrook was one of them. He should have gone to prison for that alone yet he became an even more powerful swamp creature.

      And the way he treated the families of MIAs was beyond belief. I hope McCain is rotting in Hell.

    • Joe says:

      And there was no bigger cheerleader for these forever wars. And if Trump even questioned them you GD hypocrite liberals were right by McCain’s side ttacking Trump. Talk about sociopaths!

  3. Peggy says:

    And then we have a pro-abortion democrat presidential candidate who is against circumcision. Ripping arms and legs off of a baby is OK, but removing the foreskin isn’t. Poor Beto has some real competition there with his pro-infanticide position.

    Democratic 2020 candidate takes stand on circumcision.

  4. Libby says:

    No. THIS video is worth watching:

    How will the liberals who infest this blog spin this?

    Trump Witch Hunt Over: No American Was Even Charged With Conspiring With Russia

    So over 2 years and how many tens of millions of dollars (or more?) wasted on this?

    • Post Scripts says:

      Joe, yup it was pretty outrageous alright and America is not one bit better for it. They got a couple of petty crooks and few who lied to investigators for unknown reasons. Big deal.

    • Peggy says:

      Russians are having a good laugh. Democrats did to America what the Russians have tried to do for decades. We are destroying ourselves from within and the Democrats are using the wrecking balls.

      Democrats now want total transparency and want Barr to release everything, including, confidential, grand jury and the names and information on innocent people so their lives can be destroyed in the arena of public opinion. I wonder if they’ll change their demands if Barr also decided to release all of the info. on the Obama scandals beginning with Fast and Furious, IRS, Benghazi, Iran Deal. Let’s see how Hillary, Obama and those who are on tape lying to congress fare with the public?

      Barr’s primary goal has to be to restore the public’s opinion and faith in the job the DOJ and FBI will do in the future from it’s current KGB mode of operation. Different treatment based on party affiliation, religion and class/economic status has to end or we may as well hang a hammer and sickle on the doors of congress.

      • Chris says:

        Peggy, Barr explicitly said that he has seen no evidence that the Mueller investigation was handled inappropriately. This is a big turn from his arguments before becoming AG that he thought the investigation was politically motivated and unfair. So either the Deep State got to him, or he’s seen the evidence up close and personal and realized that the Deep State conspiracies the right is trafficking in are bogus, and this investigation was necessary and appropriate.

        Whatever the Mueller report finds, the fact is that Mueller was tasked to investigate links between the Trump campaign and Russia, and he found them. Gates, Papadopoulos, Manafort, and Flynn are all going to prison precisely because they lied about such links, and Stone is likely headed there as well. (In my opinion Don Jr. should have been charged for soliciting an illegal campaign contribution as well, but Mueller was very careful not to charge anything he didn’t feel he could prove beyond a reasonable doubt.) This was an incredibly successful investigation by any reasonable metric. Both those on the left who are disappointed that it did not find direct evidence of collusion and those on the right celebrating the same are simply misrepresenting what the investigation was tasked to find.

    • Chris says:

      Trump Witch Hunt Over: No American Was Even Charged With Conspiring With Russia

      No, but here’s what they were charged with:

      –Michael Flynn: Lying to the FBI about conversations with the Russian ambassador about sanctions. Flynn pleaded guilty.

      –George Papadopoulos: Lying to the FBI about conversations with Russian government agents who claimed they had hacked e-mails related to Hillary Clinton. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty.

      –Rick Gates: Conspiracy against the United States and lying to the FBI about his lobbying work on behalf of Russian interests in the Ukraine. Gates pleaded guilty to both charges.

      –Paul Manafort: Conspiracy against the United States and lying to the FBI about his lobbying work on behalf of Russian interests in the Ukraine. Like Gates, Manafort was an unregistered foreign agent. Unlike Gates, he pleaded not guilty. He has not been convicted of these crimes yet, but has been convicted of financial crimes, and is under indictment for witness tampering and other offenses.

      –Roger Stone: Indicted for lying to investigators about his coordination with WikiLeaks, a Russian propaganda arm, as well as numerous other crimes including witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

      So yes, no one has been indicted directly in a scheme to collude with Russia, probably because Mueller is a very careful prosecutor, and only wanted to take cases he could prove beyond a reasonable doubt. But these charges clearly show a pattern of members of Trump’s inner circle having inappropriate contacts with members of the Russian government and then lying about them. How does that not bother any of the so-called conservatives here?

      This does not even cover other publicly available bits of information that were uncovered by the media rather than Mueller, such as Don Jr.’s attempt to get dirt on Hillary from people who said they were working with the Russian government, or Jared Kushner’s backchannel to Russia. It doesn’t cover Sessions’ misstatements about his Russian contacts. It doesn’t cover Trump’s repeated attempts to help cover up Russia’s election meddling, or his open request for Russia to release more of Hillary’s e-mails, or his bragging about firing Comey to Russian government officials in the Oval Office. It doesn’t cover any of the allegations in the Steele dossier, or the allegations against Carter Page. It also doesn’t cover other campaign crimes unrelated to Russia, like those Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to.

      How can anyone look at this information and think there is nothing to the Mueller investigation? 4 top members of the Trump campaign are going to prison, with another one probably headed there. Trump staffed his campaign with money launderers, tax cheats, unregistered foreign agents, and liars. Why do none of you care about that? What is wrong with you?

      • Joe says:

        Most of these were bullshit process crimes where the FBI tricks the defendants into saying one false statement and then nails them for lying.

        Can’t wait to see your reaction when Trump pardons all of them!

        Then you and the rest of the loony left will really wet your pants.

        And when Trump gets re-elected you will be off the charts apoplectic.

        It will be beyond entertaining to hear your whining in this blog as you have to endure 4 more years of Trump!

        • Chris says:

          “Most of these were bullshit process crimes where the FBI tricks the defendants into saying one false statement and then nails them for lying.”

          Now this is bullshit. Flynn told a material lie when he said he did not discuss sanctions with Kislyak. And he was not “tricked”—he said this multiple times, to both the FBI and the public.

          Why do you think he lied about this? I have a theory: weakening the sanctions passed by Obama was the administration’s way of rewarding Russia for its efforts to assist the Trump campaign, and Flynn did not want this to get out.

          What’s your theory?

          Papadopoulos lied about a conversation in which he told the Australian High Commissioner to Britain that Russia was in possession of DNC emails. How did he know this, do you think? I have a theory: he knew it because he was working with the Russians who had the emails. What’s yours?

          Gates lied about his lobbying work for pro-Russia interests in the Ukraine. So did Manafort.

          What’s your theory for how both of these unregistered foreign agents ended up on the Trump campaign that does not involve collusion?

          Trump defenders have offered no compelling alternate theory for why all of these contacts were made and then lied about by so many members of the Trump campaign. You have just screamed “NO COLLUSION” as if that is in itself an alternate theory. It is not.

          I always suspected, and always said, that Mueller was unlikely to find direct proof of collusion. There was never going to be a written document or formal agreement between Russia and Trump or members of his campaign. But the informal agreement is clear, and has been all along: “You help me, and I help you.” That’s how Trump thinks. It’s who he is.

          “Can’t wait to see your reaction when Trump pardons all of them!

          Then you and the rest of the loony left will really wet your pants.

          And when Trump gets re-elected you will be off the charts apoplectic.

          It will be beyond entertaining to hear your whining in this blog as you have to endure 4 more years of Trump!”

          You want criminals pardoned for lying to Congress and the FBI…to own the libs. That’s all you care about. Trumpists never get to pretend to be in favor of law and order again.

  6. Joe says:

    When will Hillary Clinton ever be held to account?????

    Jack, can you answer that question?

    The new batch of Hillary Clinton emails obtained by Judicial Watch contains messages that the former secretary of state tried to delete, according to the watchdog. The latest collection casts doubt on Clinton’s 2015 statement under oath that she handed all her confidential work-related emails to the State Department.


  7. Libby says:

    Joe, we already knew there was no overt collusion. If anything, the Trump Campaign was played, not very effectively, by Russian agents.

    And I suppose Mueller has a point: if you didn’t do it, you can’t be charged with obstructing the investigation of the thing you didn’t do.

    So why did Trump ask Comey to go easy on Flynn? … and then fire Comey? This is not the behavior of an uprighteous, innocent person. It’s the behavior of a willful, and amoral thug … a swamp creature.

    • Post Scripts says:

      Donald Trump is trying to run the White House using the standards and tactics that kept him on top in the hotel business. Was he prepared to handle the delicate nuances of his new job? No. Of course nobody enters this office fully prepared. There’s a steep learning curve and lets face it, Trump has not adapted as fast as he should in large part due to his big ego. He’s still operating New York style, still talking off the cuff, exaggerating to make a point, just like he did as a CEO and that was ok then, but not so much as the president. He can be too abrasive, too blunt and his inter-office diplomacy style is poor. Look at the stuff he says without a filter and it constantly gets him in trouble.

      His interview with James Comey right after becoming president was ill considered and ham handed. But, it was not obstruction, in my opinion. As Libby pointed out, you can’t be guilty of obstruction if there was nothing to obstruct. Trump was just being Trump and he put his foot in it… several times.

      Trump’s made a lot of faux paux type mistakes, but nothing that can’t be fixed. The country is still fine and Trump has stayed on track with his campaign promises, at least as much as possible given the democrats resistance and the “Never Trumpers” in the GOP.

      Staying focused on his campaign planks has been his strong suit and that’s commendable. But, his tact and communications…eh, well, lets just say he’s no Ronald Reagan.

      Given the left’s hatred and relentless mocking, a lesser man might have quit and walked out by now. But, not Trump, he’s determined to see it thru no matter what comes his way. I believe he loves his country and he wants to see us winning…all of us. And you know what? For our first truly civilian president, he’s done alright! He believes in our capitalist system and he believes in us. He wants the best for America, I have NO doubt about that part. Will the people that didn’t vote for him at least give him a chance? That remains to be seen and I’m just not sure. However, I do think these people are getting tired of the witch hunts and slandering. If the dems don’t back off it’s going to cost them the next election.

      • Libby says:

        “Donald Trump is trying to run the White House using the standards and tactics that kept him on top in the hotel business.”

        Like I said, an amoral thug. Geez, Jack, open yer eyes.

        Does this sound like swamp draining?

        This guy does not have the integrity of your drinking water at heart. You can be a flaming hypocrite or a dupe … you choose.

        • Post Scripts says:

          Libby, I am not defending Trump’s morals. I know what we got in there, but I couldn’t say that about the last president. I still don’t know. Most politicians are as phony as a 3 dollar bill, but at least we see the real Trump.

          • Libby says:

            But you lauded “the standards and tactics that kept him on top in the hotel business.”

            And I said these standards and tactics were those of an amoral thug … you know, the sort of fella that refuses to pay his contractors, and then sets out to completely ruin them if they have the audacity to sue?

            So? … is this what you approve of in your President? The sort of fella who puts the interests of oil investors over the integrity of our interior? Or worse … does not know or care one way or the other … just does whatever some slime ball of an aide tells him to?

            Think ! Your great-great-grandchildren REALLY need you to make an effort.

          • Post Scripts says:

            Nope Libby…didn’t laud anything, just said this is Trump. He’s a New York business man used to dealing with construction contractors, wholesalers and even the competitors. That way is much different than how we expect the president to act. Now surely you get this? Its neither good nor bad, its just putting in perspective the Trump personality.

          • Libby says:

            “Nope Libby…didn’t laud anything, just said this is Trump.”

            You’ve nailed it: “The King of Denial” … the title is yours.

          • Post Scripts says:

            Libs, like I said, Trump is Trump, what you see is what you get. That’s not lauding him as virtuous or something. Lets be fair, ok?

          • Chris says:

            But it isn’t “neither good or bad.” It’s bad.

      • Chris says:

        “He wants the best for America, I have NO doubt about that part. ”

        That’s…a fairly low standard, since I have no doubt every president has wanted the best for America. I mean, there are people who think Bush didn’t, and people who think Obama didn’t, but those people are nuts.

        But let’s look at priorities. Trump certainly cares an awful lot of people thinking he is doing a great job for the country. To the point where, when he fails at something, he just lies and says he’s doing an amazing job, in fact, the best job of any president ever! One example out of, possibly, hundreds:

        “Puerto Rico has been taken care of better by Donald Trump than by any living human being and I think the people of Puerto Rico understand it,” Trump said. “You have the mayor of San Juan that, frankly, doesn’t know what she’s doing and the governor, they have to spend the money wisely. They don’t know how to spend the money and they’re not spending it wisely.”

        This is, as you know, bullshit. But Trump doesn’t really care much about the people of Puerto Rico, and likely doesn’t consider them Americans. What he cares about is that you think he’s done more for Puerto Rico than any living human being.

        Another example:

        Trump told the people of Michigan that he has fully funded Great Lakes restoration, “which you have been trying to get for over 30 years.” But Trump has proposed cuts to Great Lakes restoration in every budget proposal. Congress just keeps ignoring him.

        Look: all politicians lie, and all politicians sometimes take credit for things they didn’t do. But Trump does both of these things much, much more often than previous presidents.

        People who actually care about other human beings do not talk like this. They don’t make tragedies like what happened in Puerto Rico all about themselves and how unfair the press is to them. This is not a man who cares about people. Donald Trump cares about Donald Trump and about other people liking Donald Trump and thinking Donald Trump is amazing. This is not news. It is not some secret. He is a shockingly selfish, vain, and greedy man, and always has been. Do his supporters really not see this? Or do they just not care?

        • Chris says:

          I mean, imagine if, right after the Obamacare website rollout failed spectacularly, Obama had gone on TV and said “This is the best website ever, and Barack Obama knows more about setting up websites than even the website designers.” You would have attacked him mercilessly. And you would have been right.

          Your standards for Trump are way too low.

  8. Libby says:

    Lord, this kind of thing creeps me out:

    It’s so very “Handmaid’s Tale”. Well, at least it’s not being allowed to pass without comment.

      • Post Scripts says:

        Libs, for the umpteenth time, she’s all rhetoric absent one clue how to achieve what she is selling. It’s all unbridled emotion without a workable plan. She touts the fact she now has health insurance for the first time, but we can’t all be in Congress and enjoy their lavish benefits. People like my daughter are still without health insurance because it is unaffordable! The Obamacare deductibles are way too high and so is the premium. It just doesn’t pencil out for her so she gambles and goes without. But, does AOC talk about that? No. She talks about how she has health insurance for the first time, as if its something everyone has thanks to democrats. Pffft. AOC ignores a whole lot reality as she gives her unicorn speeches. For example, who is paying for her health insurance or why people like my daughter can’t afford it. Obamacare is cost ineffective and unsustainable and yet people on your side want to double down and bring us even more costs and unattainability. Do the math Libs because obviously AOC isn’t bright enough to do it. That’s why she couldn’t get one vote for her green new deal…. that’s pathetic.

        • Libby says:

          It’s called “visionary”, Jack. There’s not enough of it in politics.

          And I’m curious about your daughter. What can Covered California do for you if you live in Chico? Has she gone online to find out?

          Down here, it’s no prob … Kaiser is going great guns on this Medicaid expansion thingy … because they can do a volume business. And I, being impoverished, had my whole premium covered. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work that way in Chico. Maybe I’ll fake an identity and go find out for myself.

          But, theoretically, if all in the state pitch in, there’s no economic reason why poor people in Chico shouldn’t get covered … except … there was that Republican PoS of a judge who quashed the individual mandate … shredding our lovely economic base … and, oh, I have a headache.

        • Chris says:

          People who have done the math say that Obamacare slowed the rise in premium growth, Jack.
