THE EVIDENCE IS IN, THE FACTS ARE CLEAR, THERE'S NO LONGER ROOM FOR DOUBT:
Donald J. Trump, 45TH President of the United States, is guilty as sin of OBSTRUCTION OF BUPKIS; and the booming, Trump strong economy, and rising GDP, will lawfully sentence him to eight full years of doing hard time in the White House, sharing a cell with Pence. He's getting off easy, however, his sentence should be for life.
THE SIGNS ARE UNMISTAKABLY CLEAR
We're in the first 500 days
of eight MAGA
You can't really be this stupid, can you?
He admitted flat-out that he fired Comey to try to stop the investigation, and this just one thing among many actions he's taken to try and stop this investigation - you cheer them all.
But the investigation didn't stop, nor did he remove any of the actual investigators. No evidence was hidden, changed, or destroyed. Nobody prevented the gathering of evidence or interrogation of witnesses. Admit it stupid: TRUMP OBSTRUCTED BUPKIS!
Just because he's failed doesn't mean he hasn't tried, he flat-out admitted it
You want him to fire Mueller, don't you? Why? To stop the investigation, it's what you were hoping when Comey was fired to, and you're hoping that the firing of McCabe will lead to the end of this investigation.
Comey testified that Trump backed the investigation into Russia's interference in the election, and told him to get to the bottom of it. Comey also testified he told Trump on three occasions that he wasn't personally under investigation.
Moreover, McCabe testified before congress that Comey's firing obstructed and impeded nothing - neither the Russiagate probe nor any other of its hundreds of probes. The evidence is clear: Trump OBSTRUCTED BUPKIS!
McCabe said Comey's firing will not impede the investigation, he didn't say it wasn't an attempted act of obstruction by Trump.
Trump admitted he fired Comey to try and stop the investigation.
Bull! Trump fired Comey because he refused to go public with the truth (to counter fake news reports) that he wasn't personally under investigation - as Comey told him on three occasions. What Trump wanted Comey to do was political and improper, not criminal or obstructive. If Comey complied he'd probably still have his job. Again I say, Trump OBTRUCTED BUPKIS!
"And in fact when I decided to do it [fire Comey] I said to myself, I said you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story"
Spin it how you want, Trump just stated his reason for firing Comey and it's obstruction.
Right. If probable cause of a crime wasn't the basis of Comey's Russiagate probe, but a completely made up fictitious story of Trump-Russia election collusion (no evidence of this after 19 months), or that Russia had some kind of leverage over Trump (as suggested by the phony, unverified Steele dossier, and since proven wrong by events see) then the probe was unwarranted and Comey's intent on starting it was political and CORRUPT.
BTW, political corruption in Comey's handling of the Hillary email probe was at the basis of Rosenstein's recommendation to Trump to fire him.
Trump wanting to fire Comey because he believed he was a dirty cop corrupted by politics (as Rosenstein affirmed and Sessions agreed) is not justice obstruction,
IT'S JUSTICE DONE.
Obstruction of justice depends on corrupt intent, not effectiveness.
Obstruction of justice is any course of action taken with the "unlawful intent of obstructing a proceeding for an improper purpose....
”[S]uch actions may include fabricating an initial justification for firing Comey, directing Donald Trump Jr.’s inaccurate statements about the purpose of his meeting with a Russian lawyer during the president’s campaign,...and repeatedly denouncing the validity of the investigations....”
LOL!!!! So you're saying that Trump was so ignorant of how the FBI works that he stupidly believed that if he got Sessions/Rosenstein to provide the legal framework for firing Comey (which they did) that it would magically end the Russiagate investigation? That the 100 or so investigators working the case would magically stop probing and go home? But that all other open investigations and projects (hundreds of them) would continue? Is this what you think Trump believed?
And what about Sessions and Rosenstein? In providing the legal framework for firing Comey (political corruption - keeping Hillary from prosecution) weren't they giving the President's alleged obstruction crime legal cover? And if so doesn't that mean that Rosenstein (who hired Mueller) was part of a criminal conspiracy to get rid of Comey? In other words, Mueller can't indict Trump for obstruction without indicting Sessions and more importantly Rosenstein as accomplices, right? From all the facts and evidence gathered to date it's crystal clear: Donald Trump is guilty of
And you, SPN, are a
WASHINGTON — President Trump ordered the firing last June of Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, according to four people told of the matter, but ultimately backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than carry out the directive.
The West Wing confrontation marks the first time Mr. Trump is known to have tried to fire the special counsel. Mr. Mueller learned about the episode in recent months as his investigators interviewed current and former senior White House officials in his inquiry into whether the president obstructed justice.
MORE OBSTRUCTION OF BUPKIS
What's wrong here is this: from the very start, from May 16, 2017 when Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein took Mueller to an interview with President Trump as a possible replacement for James Comey to head the FBI and Russiagate investigation Trump flat-out rejected him, telling Rosenstein "NO!" The President did not feel comfortable with Comey's good friend replacing him as FBI Chief. And it makes perfect sense. Trump didn't fire Comey to hire a another Comey for heading the Bureau. And surely if Trump didn't want Comey II heading the FBI he was doubly, tripley, quadruply against him being Special Council.
In short, if we can trust the NY Times story, the reason Trump wanted Mueller fired goes back to May 16th predating him becoming Special Council. It had nothing to do with Mueller's performance as Special Council (as he barely started his investigation) and everything to do with him being Jim Comey II.
In other words, Trump wanting to fire Mueller last June was
OBSTRUCTION OF BUPKIS
all over again.
Wait a minuet! How can this be? If Donald Trump was Putin's secret "Siberian Candidate" during the election, and now as president is Putin's dependable collusion puppet, and if Putin stopped Trump from choosing anti-Russian Mitt Romney for Secretary of State preferring Exxon's Tillerson instead, then the question is this: how could Russia's prize puppet have fired Tillerson without angering his master in Moscow?
Isn't this proof that the Trump-Russia treason collusion theory is the crackpot stuff of left-wing fake news conspiracy nuts? You'd think so. But the nut job Left has an answer to rationalize this: 'Tillerson,' they say, 'was a bad, unreliable, turn coat puppet who disappointed Putin; what started out so promising for Russia (in 2014 Tillerson opposed Russian sanctions) ended up a disaster, and Putin put a stop to it.'
That Trump has transformed the madhouse of the Democrat Left into a full-blown asylum for the politically insane was on full display this week. As laughably inferred by Business Insider Tillerson's firing just one day after he blamed Russia for poisoning Sergei Skripal wasn't coincidence. It pissed off Putin who voiced his displeasure to Trump; and Tillerson was out on his butt a warning to his successor who'll share the same fate if he dares oppose Putin and Russian crimes and interests.
I'm surprised Business Insider, or other media anti-Trump freaks, didn't allege that Russia might have been behind Tillerson falling sick in Africa the victim of a botched poisoning attempt in revenge for his anti-Putin stance.
Nancy Pelosi who in 2016 accused Tillerson of being a butt kissing Putin lover (where was she when Obama was president?) unfit to head the State Dept. laughably now condemn's his ouster saying: “Secretary Tillerson's firing sets a profoundly disturbing precedent in which standing up for our allies against Russian aggression is grounds for a humiliating dismissal.”
Doesn't this knucklehead know that Tillerson was fired because of his softness on Iran and its worthless nuclear deal - a position favorable to Russia, Iran's most important ally? Was Pelosi in a coma when Trump was in Rihyad last year and rallied 54 Sunni Moslem states against Islamonazi Iran when they vowed to stop its advance across the Middle East and bring it down? If Trump and our allies succeed it would cost Russia dearly as Iran is its most important economic, military and geostrategic partner in the region.
Meanwhile, Tillerson's replacement, outgoing CIA Chief Mike Pompeo is a hardliner on Russia going back years. Indeed, in 2014 after Putin's annexation of Crimea Pompeo criticized the Obama administration and the West for their "slow, weak response to Russian aggression;" and (contrary to Tillerson) he called on them to heavily sanction Russia.
Truth is, Donald Trump has no illusions about the intensely competitive and adversarial relationship he's in with Vladmir Putin - who's single-mindedly and ruthlessly driven by the vision (at America's expense) of making Russia great again; and so he's replacing Rex Tillerson with Mike Pompeo, a man whose anti-Putin credentials are just as solid and credible at Mitt Romney's.

BETTER IDEA FOR BILLBOARD
AL QAIDA AND ISIS WANT
Let me understand this, you libs say the NRA is a terrorist organization because it protects the gun ownership rights of law-abiding Americans. While murdering terrorist groups like ISIS and Al Qaida support you libs in wanting to end those rights so they can kill Americans with greater safety and ease - knowing they won't return fire. Like you libs ISIS and Al Qaida (and every bloodthirsty nut) want America to become one vast GUN FREE ZONE, while "terrorist" NRA lobbies and spends millions to prevent this insanity. How then is the NRA a terrorist organization, morons? ISIS and Al Qaida have no better friends in this country than you.
AND NOW FOR MORE ANTI-GUN
Well then Mr. Liberal if the NRA is a terrorist organization because it protects the gun rights and civil liberties of 300 million Americans (posing a greater threat, as you believe, to national security than ISIS and Al Qaida) is America then a terrorist nation endangering global security because its citizens own 300 million guns - the most of any nation on earth?
In other words, should the US State Department put both the NRA and the USA on its list of terrorist groups and states? Why not? If one gun is potentially a lethal weapon of mass destruction then multiplied by 300 million that would make us global menacing gun terrorist number 1. Right, morons?
What a foolish statement. Americans follow the rules and aren't expected to do anything more.
The loss of revenue and the gain of more debt will be SQUARELY on the Republican led Congress that voted this cut and the President that signed it. PERIOD
Why would you personally want to contribute to the revenue loss and debt gain by paying lower taxes? Wouldn't that make you no better than an irresponsible Trumpian Republican? To avoid that sin just write a check to the IRS as a bonus in addition to the tax that you owe.
Apollo, you're no smarter than when I educated you in out last debate.
The govt sets tax policy. Citizens simply follow it. The Congress and President take the heat when they don't set it appropriately.
For 8 years the GOP railed against the debt - saying it was the #1 issue to solve. Then the GOP Congress and President sign a bill that raises the debt - according to the CBO and others - by $1-1.7 Trillion over 10 years.
No, the responsibility is on govt to set good policy. This was NOT good policy.
Why would you follow what you consider to be not just bad but EXTREMELY bad tax policy where an irresponsible spendthrift gov't deep in debt is letting tax payers keep way too much of their money? Is that what good citizens do who can pay more with impunity and lessen the burden of generational theft? Is that what the Founders did over the Stamp Tax? Didn't they risk life and limb revolting against bad tax policies? What kind of American are you? The Founders are ashamed of you.
Because we are a nation of LAWS. Don't you know this?
Again, don't try to abdicate responsibility here. It falls squarely on the Law-MAKERS, not the citizens of this country.
Good law is not that which a citizen can arbitrarily decide on - it is the responsibility under our Constitution of a small group - the House, Senate and President - to come up with.
The tax cuts are NOT good law - especially for a political party who RAILED against the debt. No, it will RAISE the debt due to their actions.
Your stupid questions make me chuckle. Take some responsibility for the foolish decision your party made.
What law are you breaking by continuing to pay the higher, fiscally better, more responsible Obama rates over the lower, fiscally worse, irresponsible Trump rates? Where's your superior liberal sense of morality?
Apollo , listen closely. It isn't the job of the citizen to do anything but follow the law.
Now, for the slow. It IS the job of the House, Senate and President to create GOOD law. The tax cut is NOT good law - especially for a party that HATED debt.
Accept it. Neither you nor any of your fellow Republicans will ever be treated seriously when discussing debt again. You've blown it.
I listen and listen and hear a lot of BS. The Founders refused to follow the law and pay the Stamp Tax because doing so was morally wrong. Leftists like you say that like the Stamp Tax the Trump tax rates are morally (and fiscally) wrong for America and hurt the poor and middle class.
So why are you choosing to do the morally wrong thing and pay taxes according to Trump's immoral anti-poor, anti-middle class tax code? Why, when you can do the morally and fiscally better, right and responsible thing and starting in 2019 continue to pay taxes according to the Obama code? Why follow bad tax law when there are no legal consequences for not doing so? When you can overpay with impunity? When you can feel good about yourself not paying less than you should? Where's your integrity and self-respect? Why use the Trump rates and be a freaking hypocrite?
Fired FBI Director James Comey tweeted a Bible verse on Friday about the virtues of justice, hours after former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying to federal authorities.
Quoting a passage from the Old Testament, Comey tweeted: "Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream! Amos 5:24 (see)."
It's hilarious listening to Trump derangement media and Democrat nuts fakely laughing at the FISA Memo, and fakely saying it's a dud and nothing burger when they know how serious and damning it is; when they know it's worse and many times bigger than Watergate; when they know it points to criminal collusion between dirty, corrupt James Comey's politicized FBI, the crooked, rigged Clinton campaign and Barack Obama's lying, justice obstructing, perjuring DOJ to spy on and hopefully wreck the Trump campaign; and continue surveillance on the President-elect's transition team in the hope of finding Russia-related collusion crimes to wreck Trump's presidency or do whatever damage possible to shorten it.
But politically what these fools are missing in their fake downplaying of the memo's damning importance is its impact on Trump's base; for it has about 63 million unfooled Trump voters outraged, up in arms and hell-bent on seeing justice done and Comey, McCabe, Yates, Rosenstein, Steel and others going to jail for attempting with weaponized intelligence to thwart the election of their candidate, and delegitimize his presidency once in power. And if justice isn't done and the guilty like Hillary escape prosecution and jail this 63 million strong, who'll be growing significantly due to the rising Trump strong economy, will have their revenge on MSM and the Dems on election day again.
Just look at what's happening in the polls: Trump's Real Clear Politics (RCP) average on handling the economy broke 50% last week with Harvard-Harris leading Reuters (52%), CNN (51%) and Fox (51%) with an astonishing approval rating of 59% (see). And now that the economy's greatly improving and lifting all boats great and small it's impacting Trump's RCP approval rating lifting it out of the 30s and into the low 40s (42.2% today see) with Rasmussen high up at 49%.
Just think for a moment what these statistics likely prefigure for Trump and the GOP for the Midterms and 2020. With the economy being supercharged by the massive expunging of growth killing, anti-business red tape and regulations, and across the board, top to bottom individual and corporate tax cuts (as happened with Coolidge, JFK and Ronald Reagan) we are on the verge of the greatest period of innovation, enterprise and jobs creation since the Roaring Twenties, the Soaring Sixties and the immensely Prospering Eighties.
"Dumb," "fat," "stupid," "chaotic," "impulsive," "mentally ill" Donald Trump, the crudest, rudest, most deplorable president ever, as very nervous NeverTrumper Bill Kristol admitted on ABC today, is crazy like a freaking fox. As his vicious, frightened, brain-damaged enemies underestimate him, just like they did during the 2016 election (stupidly crediting his victory to Russia and the Comey Effect) stable genius Don is methodically working out a multipronged strategy (economic, border security, military, foreign policy, etc.) for political success that's already benefiting him and the GOP, as Kristol grudgingly says.
Indeed, when Nancy Pelosi warned that the Trump tax cuts was "Armageddon" it was, I believe, a prophetic sign for her and the Dems that the Apocalypse of the Left is near; that it's the End of Days or End Time for them; that
THE AGE OF LIBERALISM IS OVER
IT'S FINISHED WITH, DONE
AND A NEW, GLORIOUS CHAPTER IN OUR COUNTRY'S
As my readers know I've written passionately and extensively that Donald Trump (still greatly underestimated by Democrats) is the Republican FDR - without the New Deal. And that when he leaves office in 2025 he will have created a new epoch in American political history just as FDR did. I've written that there are signs indicating Trump's great FDR-like destiny: that he was the 7th New Yorker after FDR to become President; that his victory on November 8, 2016 landed on the 84th anniversary of FDR's defeat of Herbert Hoover; that Trump's parents Fred and Mary Ann were married in New York in 1936, the year FDR was elected to a second term; and that both died in New Hyde Park, New York, FDR's birthplace.
Trump and his parents.
I also wrote that when the President's parents died (Fred in 1999, Mary Ann in 2000) Bill Clinton (born like Trump in 1946) was President and in his second term; and I wrote that during that term Clinton appointed Trump's sister Judge Maryanne Trump Barry to the US Court of Appeals. Oddly, and perhaps prophetically as a sign for her brother, Maryanne was born in 1937, the first year of FDR's second term.
Moreover, on FDR's anniversary of winning the presidency when the 70 year old Donald Trump beat Bill Clinton's wife it was 577 days from April 12, 2015: that was the day Hillary kicked off her second ill-fated presidential campaign; it was also the 70th anniversary of FDR's death (see) apparently anticipating her defeat, and the death of New Deal liberalism (see).
And now knowingly or not President Trump picked for his first State of the Union address a day with great significance in the life of FDR: for tomorrow January 30th is the 136th anniversary of FDR's birth - auspicious for a successful first term, Trump's unthinkable reelection and an epoch-making presidency like FDR's.
But the big question is this: will Joe Kennedy praise President Trump for his across the board, top to bottom "supply-side," "trickle down" tax cuts for the rich, middle class and corporations? For these are the same cuts based on the same theory of stimulating economic growth made by his great-uncle John (see video above) - cuts that increased the wealth of his family, his crooked, mob-tied millionaire grand dad, and boomed the economy for all Americans (resulting in a landslide election victory for LBJ in 1964).
Oh wait! Rep Joe, hailed as the "champion of the middle class" voted against Trump's Kennedynomics, middle class boosting, pro-growth cuts. In other words, this poor leftist fool (not a sensible centrist liberal like his great-uncle) is going to rebut Trump's economic policies lying that they're a bad deal for the middle class, economic growth and will only benefit rich folks like himself. In other words, just a week after Chuck Schumer's government shutdown fiasco (and with JFK rolling in his grave) Joe Kennedy III is going to give us the spectacle of another Democrat clown show.
After Trump's SOTU and Joe Kennedy's rebuttal it will become clear to the American people that there is far more of JFK in Donald Trump than there is in little leftist Joe.
(repost from March 26, 2017)
Before Joe Kennedy tears into President Trump perhaps he should first read this:
Well, as you can see, I greatly underestimated just how great a fool Joe Kennedy III would make of himself when giving his response to Donald Trump. He appeared like a drooling, slobbering, moronic 90 lb frat boy (not just drooling but frothing like a rabid dog) compared to a 900 lb home run hitting gorilla. It was the worst most ineffective response to any SOTU delivered by any respondent of either party in U.S. history. In short, it wasn't worth spit.
To be fair little leftist anti-Kennedynomics Joe claims it wasn't drool that was slobbering from the sides of his mouth. It was "Chapstick." Or did he mean to say 'Chappaquiddickstick?' He was speaking in front of a wrecked car.
To the reader: I found this piece from Sept. 2016 in my draft folder. For some reason I never posted it, and now do so.
CALLING A FAT WOMAN FAT IS MISOGYNISTIC, DEMEANING AND UNACCEPTABLE
But letting thousands of misogynistic/homophobic Moslem fundamentalist refugees into this country (which isn't good for the safety of women and gays) is the politically correct and American thing to do. Go figure.
How is pointing out Christian conservatives fear of LGBT people a problem?
I'm not Christian. But how is expanding the community of LGBT haters in this country by letting in a flood of Syrian and other Moslem refugees good for LGBT folks?
When you drop the letter "l" from the name "Flake" and add the word "American" you get "Fake American" - a Trump-style Stalinist attack on Senator Flake.
Thank God we're finally learning who the real, true, genuine Donald Trump is. Just when we were led to believe that our monstrous, deplorable, dangerous, evil president was a Hitler-like Aryan white supremacist nazi racist along comes Arizona Senator Jeff Flake to set us straight before he retires. According to Flake Trump, like Cuba's Fidel Castro and North Korea's Kim Jong-Un (and the late Saddam Hussein) is really a Stalin-like Marxist-Leninist socialist.
Now the good news is that "Uncle Joe" Stalin (a name coined by FDR) was an anti-Nazi ally of America's and Great Britain's during World War II; and that American Jews like myself don't need to fear the Final Solution coming to this country. Though Flake says that Trump like Stalin is the unconstitutional enemy of the free press and media, and uses lies, slander and propaganda to discredit networks, journalists and newsmen (using terms like "fake news" and "the enemy of the people") apparently he's not been very good at it. Apparently for all his braggadocio, bluster and oversized ego Trump is a rank amateur at being a Stalinist.
Trump may ridicule Kim and call him "little rocket man;" but compared to Kim Trump is a pint-sized Stalinist leader.
For we have it on the good authority of Vladimir Putin (a former KGB agent and expert on Stalinist strategies and tactics) Trump is nowhere near being the mature and accomplished Stalinist leader that a Kim Jong-Un is. Trump may disparage Kim and call him "little rocket man," and brag on the size of his bigger nuclear button, but it's Trump who has a steep learning curve and ways to go before he reaches Kim's high level of competence and enters the top ranks of Stalinist leaders.
The problem however is Jeff Flake leaving the U.S. Senate. Once he's gone who will replace him to fill the vital role of Senate watchdog as Trump with Putin's help (and daily secret meetings with Ambassador Kislyak) is expertly shaped into becoming the American Josef Stalin?
When 63 million American voters made Donald Trump the 45th U.S. President they knew exactly who he was and what they'd be getting. They knew he was a crude, rude, egocentric, combative dude, entertainingly loose with facts, given to hyperbole and bluster who was a bit sexist, hated illegal aliens and wasn't too fond of Moslems. They knew Trump was far from a perfect human being and would, if elected, fall far short of Abe Lincoln our most saint like President. And the man they elected with his good and bad traits hasn't changed one bit. 12 months in office and he's the same defiant, disruptive, tweeting, antagonizing, offensive, counter punching American first patriot that they saw during the campaign, and that family members and friends have known going back decades.

But be warned! In 10,000 years or more monster glaciers will return to Manhattan with a vengeance. Polar bears and penguins will overrun the frozen island as planet Earth (cooled by a drop in solar activity) once again enters the BIG CHILL: a long, dark, cold period of brutal, frigid, bone chilling temperatures causing global crop failures and mass starvation - all the horrors predicted in the 1970s during the ice age scare.
DEC. 30, 2003
December 30, 2003 was a very dark and infamous day for the US law enforcement and criminal justice systems - and above all for the American people. It was when lying, deceiving, corrupt, politicized Deputy Attorney General James Comey after an FBI investigation led by a lying, deceiving, corrupt politicized Director Robert Mueller appointed a lying, deceiving corrupt, politicized US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as special prosecutor to investigate the Valerie Plame- CIA covert agent leak case. Indeed, Fitzgerald was appointed to his position after Attorney General John Ashcroft (a good, honest, decent man) was lied to, deceived and manipulated by Comey and Mueller into recusing himself from the probe. In the history of criminal DOJ investigations nothing this crooked, deceitful and shameful had ever been done.
THE UNWARRANTED SPECIAL COUNCIL PROBE
Comey laughably compared Patrick Fitzgerald to the incorruptible, untouchable Elliot Ness.
Now the purpose of the special counsel probe in Plamegate was to find the source within the Bush administration that apparently "leaked" to conservative journalist Robert Novak the identity of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame - a possible crime under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act (IIPA see). But outrageous as it was Fitzgerald's appointment by Comey (with Mueller's backing and blessing) was completely, totally, absolutely unwarranted - a waste of $3 million in tax payer's money spent over a 30 month period to find what was already known to both men and criminally hid from Ashcroft.
RICHARD ARMITAGE CONFESSES TO NONCRIMINAL PLAME LEAK
Armitage and boss Colin Powell
Indeed, on October 2, 2003, early in the investigation (90 days before Comey hired Fitzgerald) Richard Armitage (Undersecretary of State to Colin Powell) confessed to FBI investigators that he was the culprit: Novak's primary source for the Plame "leak" - which he (as he and Novak later said) let innocently slip out in idle, casual, shooting the breeze state department gossip (see). As Novak said and Armitage confirmed, "I didn't do any digging to get Plame's name; it was given to me by Armitage."
KARL ROVE AND BILL HARLOW CONFIRM LEAK
Moreover, shortly afterwards, Mueller's investigators learned from interviewing Karl Rove (Bush's Deputy Chief of Staff), and CIA spokesman Bill Harlow, that they were Novak's secondary sources for confirming Armitage's "leak." What Mueller and Comey also knew was that these three men committed no crimes under the IIPA; that the primary leak and two confirmations weren't nefarious attempts to expose Plame's covert status and hurt her in any way. In other words, what Novak received from Armitage about Plame (and then from Rove and Harlow) wasn't a real criminal leak of classified CIA information.
Consequently, because Armitage, Rove and Harlow were innocent of wrongdoing (there was no underlying criminal intent in the leak and confirmations) Fitzgerald never prosecuted them. And because Valerie Plame wasn't the victim of a crime her 2007 civil suit against Armitage, Cheney, Libby and Rove for damages done to her person and career was dismissed as no better than a frivolous nuisance suit (see). In the final analysis, Plame was the victim of her husband's lying, slanderous, malicious op-ed attack on the Bush administration.
FAKE NEWS BUSH CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY STORY
The narrative that the Plame disclosure was a serious IIPA crime was a fake news media story designed to smear the Bush administration because of the Iraq War. Nation's David Corn, the Washington Post, New York Times and hate Bush derangement conspiracy nuts accused the administration of criminally planting the story of Plame's secret identity with Novak to discredit her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, a critic of a so-called "illegal war;" and then (like Nixon with Watergate) trying to criminally cover it up.
JOE WILSON, NIGER AND YELLOW CAKE URANIUM
This is what happened: President Bush in his January 2003 State of the Union claimed (rightly as it turned out see) that Saddam Hussein sent agents to the African country of Niger to purchase yellow cake uranium to build a nuclear bomb. (Saddam later admitted to FBI interrogators that he had every intention of reconstituting his nuclear weapon's program see). This and other charges against Saddam were used to justify going to war against him.
In February 2002 the CIA sent Joe Wilson (former Ambassador to Gabon who did some work in Niger) to investigate Bush's claim. Wilson was chosen for the mission on the recommendation of his wife Valerie Plame (a covert agent who worked in the WMD and nuclear proliferation division of the agency). On July 6, 2003 (Bush's 57th birthday) Wilson published an article in the NY Times (see) accusing Bush of lying about the Saddam-Uranium-Niger connection; actually, as was later discovered, it was Wilson who was lying as the connection was real, but a deal was never consummated (see).
ROBERT NOVAK'S BOMBSHELL COLUMN
Enter conservative columnist Robert Novak. Several days after the Times published Wilson's slanderous anti-Bush hit piece Novak contacted Richard Armitage to discuss the matter (and whatever high level State Department gossip he could offer). Novak puzzled about Wilson's CIA appointment asked Armitage the following:
"Why would the CIA send Joseph Wilson, not an expert in nuclear proliferation and with no intelligence experience, on the mission to Niger?"
Mueller's comments came under pointed questioning by House Democrats demanding to know if the Federal Bureau of Investigation tried to stop interrogations in 2002 that critics define as torture.
Mueller said the FBI does not use coercive techniques when questioning suspects or witnesses, and he reportedly pulled his agents out of CIA or military interrogations several years ago to protect them from legal consequences.....
Mueller said some of the FBI's concerns dated back to 2002, when top al Qaeda detainees were waterboarded by CIA interrogators. Waterboarding involves strapping a person down and pouring water over his or her cloth-covered face to create the sensation of drowning. Critics call it a form of torture.
The number of border patrol arrests that soared exponentially during the failed sanctuary nation Obama years is now dramatically, precipitously dropping.
Obama's well deserved image as a weak border security/ law and order, pro-illegal alien, anti-cop president (wanting blanket amnesty and sanctuary cities) emboldened and fueled criminal border crossings. Whereas Trump's reverse image as a tough border security, law and order, anti-illegal alien, anti-amnesty, pro-cop president is discouraging criminal crossings.
This ICE report of data through early October shows that while removal of illegal Mexican aliens were down, as The Hill reports, administrative arrests of all illegal aliens were up 30% in fiscal year 2017. It concludes that the decrease in removal numbers overall compared to fiscal year 2016 (which Trump haters are hailing as a victory for Obama) was primarily due to about 17% fewer illegals captured at the border.
THE TRUMP EFFECT
But in reality Trump's embassy move in Israel has no more isolated this country in the so-called "community of nations" (there is no common unity as all nations pursue their self-interest) and made us into a pariah and outcast than did Ronald Reagan in 1983 when breaching international law he ordered the invasion of Grenada to overthrow an oppressive, unpopular, pro-Cuban Marxist regime. Then also the broken, bankrupt, dysfunctional, corrupt UN instead of celebrating the liberation of the Grenadian people (as they jubilantly did) condemned the U.S. in a 108-9 vote as if tyranny were preferable to freedom.
Then UN Ambassador Jeane Kilpatrick commenting on the UN vote defiantly said:
What was done to the Old Post Office in Washington DC should be replicated with the UN Building.
EXPEL THE UN FROM THE UN BUILDING AND MAKE IT A TOWERING TRUMP HOTEL
The United Nations is a broken, dysfunctional, profoundly corrupt international body - a failure like its predecessor The League of Nations - that does more harm than good in this world sowing discord, strife and war where it should bring unity, harmony and peace. Indeed, the UN Building would do Manhatten, New York and America more good as a Five Star Trump Hotel than a den of liars, cowards and anti-American schemes.
TRUMP THE UN NOW
AND EXPEL IT FROM AMERICA
DEMOCRATS, LEFTISTS, PROGRESSIVES UNITE!
PROTEST, OPPOSE AND RESIST
with all your might Trump's racist assault on Obama's economic legacy. If you're against this man and his self-enriching plan then show him you mean it and don't be HYPOCRITES! Let him, his family and Republicans know just how outraged you are at his robber baron tax breaks; that on moral, fiscal and economic grounds you want nothing to do with the money you'll save, and will keep paying taxes by the old, higher Obama era rates.
GIVE MORE TO GOVERNMENT AND LESS TO THE RICH
MAKE APRIL 15TH OBAMA PATRIOTIC TAX DAY
LET'S PLEDGE TO PAY TAXES AS IF OBAMA WERE STILL PRES AND GIVE THE FINGER TO TRUMP
THOSE WHO DON'T WILL BE SCORNED AS GREEDY, MONEY GRUBBING, RIGHT-WING HOGS DEPRIVING GOVERNMENT OF NEEDED FUNDS FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE PROGRAMS AND LOTTSA FREE STUFF
NEVER GIVE UP!
NEVER GIVE IN!
RESIST TO THE END!
WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT SOME CHANGE!
who live endlessly for gain don't get any dumber. But it gets worse. This dummy's tax cut for himself is even smaller than George Bush's (who Trump laughably ridicules). Millionaire Bush cut taxes on the rich a stupid, low 4.5% making himself the laughing-stock of the robber class because he could've grabbed millions more. Look at this and split your sides: when Bush became president the top marginal rate was 39.6% (Bill Clinton's rate). When Bush left office it was at 35%- a modest but incredibly dumb 4.6% drop. With the Republican controlled Congress Bush could have knocked off 11.6% from Clinton's rate restoring Reagan's 28; or he could've knocked off 8.6% restoring his father's 31*. George Bush screwed himself and his family out of millions and deserves our lasting contempt.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama Republican Roy Moore on Friday told supporters that the “battle is not over” in Alabama’s Senate race even though President Donald Trump and others have called on him to concede.
Moore sent a fundraising email to supporters asking for contributions to his “election integrity fund’ so he could investigate reports of voter fraud.
“I also wanted to let you know that this battle is NOT OVER!” he wrote.
Birds of a feather. Bill Clinton and Bob Menendez.
Two young female prostitutes who said they had sex with Menendez when he was partying in the Dominican Republic
It's many years now and hypocrite Democrat Senators Schumer, Gilliband and others won't demand that sexual pedophile pervert predator Bob Menendez resign with Al Franken from the Senate for his immorality, licentiousness and salacious crimes. Do they think that we the public have forgotten about the charges leveled against him first by Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller, then by Barack Obama's Attorney General Loretta Lynch (see below) of protecting a registered child predator on his staff and being a child predator himself? That in the Dominican Republic he attended wild sex parties where he had sex with underaged teenage hookers arranged by US millionaire, medicare fraudster and friend Sal Melgen (see). Why was there never an ethics committee investigation into Menendez's pedophilia crimes? Why isn't there one now?
Frankengropper standing near pal pedophile degenerate Bob Menendez.
Why didn't Al Franken when he announced his resignation find it strange that after all these years pedophile Bob Menendez is still a sitting Senator disgracing the US Senate? Why hasn't Mitch McConnell and the Republicans spoken out on this outrage and investigated him? Why did Lindsey Graham defend Menendez as a "honest man" at his trial (while telling Roy Moore to "step down") despite his denials about his disgustingly criminal sexual behavior (see)? What utter incredible contemptible hypocrites they are, the whole rotten stinking lot of them.
What happened Wednesday December 6th with Donald Trump (the 45th President of the United States in the 45th week of his presidency see) standing strong with Israel (against its implacable Palestinian foes) and recognizing Jerusalem as its capital was not just the right thing to do for PEACE (in the long run), it was, as you will see, his DESTINY. You will see from signs and wonders going back to Donald Trump's birth (during the presidency of Harry Truman when Israel was born) that a HIGHER POWER was at work directing Wednesday's historic event (which I predicted would happen, but six months sooner, see).
I begin with the Jerusalem Embassy Act (JEA) which President Trump after 22 years and three presidents has decided to enact and enforce against the opposition of a failed foreign policy status quo and phony peace process that's been perpetuating the conflict causing war after war and thousands killed. What you're about to read is MIND BLOWING and can't be the work of mindless, chaotic, random chance, but a HIGHER POWER intervening in our mundane affairs.
An act to provide for the relocation of the United States Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and for other purposes.
November 8, 1995.
|STATUTES AT LARGE|
109 Stat. 398
You will notice that the JEA, passed by the 104th Congress when Bill Clinton was President, was PUBLIC LAW 104-45 - five digits that end in 45, Donald Trump's president's number. And it appears that by an Act of Providence (who else can do such extraordinary things?) that it became law (though unsigned by Bill Clinton) on of all dates, NOVEMBER 8, 1995 21 years to the day that Trump beat Clinton's wife* and was elected 45th President.
*Oddly, the Congress presented the JEA (passed on October 24, 1995) to President Clinton on October 26th, Hillary's 48th birthday (see). Because Clinton didn't return it to the House signed it became law on November 8, 1995.
This tells me and should tell you that something more and higher than mortal man was at work in Donald Trump's history making declaration Wednesday - and that much good eventually will come from it.
BUT THERE'S MORE
On November 8, 1995, the day that bill
Result: 18,0 days
When the JEA became law on 11-8-1995 the Jewish State of Israel, born May 14, 1948, was exactly, precisely, amazingly in the 17,345th day of its existence (see). That's another five digit number strangely ending in 45 prophetically anticipating it seems that Israel would have to wait till the election of the 45th US President on a November 8th election date for America to finally move its embassy to Jerusalem. And apparently this would be the best time to do it.
The odds against the above "coincidences" being mere, meaningless chance events are incalculable. But here is where it truly gets profound. From many articles posted on this site my readers know that the number 7 (and its multiples 14, 21, 84 etc.) is one of President Trump's two most significant and politically auspicious numbers (the other being 16 see)*. ). My readers know that on Inauguration Day when Donald Trump was sworn in as 45th POTUS he was exactly, precisely 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old (
*So much for Trump being the great, world ending, 666 beast of the apocalypse, as some believe.
My readers know that April 7th (77 days after the inaugural) was Donald Trump's best day of his first 100 days. That was the day Trump ordered the bombing of the Syrian airbase (Syrian time) for Assad's chemical weapon's attack on innocent civilians; and Neil Gorsuch was sworn in as Supreme Court judge (see) .
My readers know that when Donald Trump (who'd make an issue of respecting the American flag) was born on June 14, 1946 it was the 169th anniversary of Flag Day; this commemorates the day in 1777 (a year with triple 7s) when the Stars and Stripes by an act of Congress was officially made our nation's flag (see).
My readers know that on the day the President ACTUALLY won the 2016 election (in the early morning hours of November 9th) it was exactly 87,787 days from 7-4-1776 our Founding Moment (both dates are encoded with the number 7 thrice see).
My readers know that when Donald Trump won the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention it fell on the 21st day of the 7th month of July (21 = 7+7+7 see).
My readers also know that three months later when the 70 year old Trump won election he was the 7th presidential candidate from New York State after Franklin Roosevelt to do so (see); and they know that his odds defying defeat of Hillary Clinton* auspiciously fell on the 84th anniversary of FDR's victory over Hoover (84 = 12x7 see).
*Strngely, Hillary kicked off her presidential campaign on April 12, 2015 on the 70th anniversary of FDR's death only to lose the election to the 70 year old Trump on the anniversary of FDR's election victory (see).
However, though FDR (friend of Saudi King Fahd as seen above) wasn't friendly to the idea of a Jewish state in Palestine (see) he inadvertently made its legitimate existence certain by choosing pro-Zionist Harry Truman as his Vice President (see below). And it was during the Truman presidency that Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, the state of Israel and its current prime minister Bibi Netanyahu were born.
TRUMP, ISRAEL AND THE NUMBER 7
But the number 7 (and its multiples) seem also to be prophetically meaningful and significant for President Trump in relation to Israel. For both Trump and Israel were born on a Friday (when the Jewish Sabbath begins) on the 14th day of the month (14 = 7+7); and on May 14, 1948 (the day Israel was born) Trump, amazingly, was exactly 700 days young (see). Moreover, when the JEA was passed by Congress on Nov. 8, 1995 Trump was 49 years old (49 = 7x7 see). And more amazing still, on the 21st anniversary of the JEA (21 = 7+7+7), the day Trump was elected president,
*Netanyahu's tenure as PM started March 31, 2009
*Palestinian children are indoctrinated with the belief that they have the deed to all Israeli lands....a deed signed by God: the holy Koran.
