As I said at AOW's (I beg the proprietor's indulgence for cutting and pasting myself, I have to get to work):We are far from impeachment. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/heres-how-impeachment-works---and-why-trump-is-safe-for-now-2017-05-17The few sane Democrats are trying to get the slobbering peanut gallery they've been stoking to stop hyperventilating:https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/18/us/politics/democrats-trump-impeachment.html?_r=0Apparently, the Democrat Establishment is afraid they've egged on the hooting loonies with a little too much crazy juice and they're trying to throttle it back now, but it's probably too late.Claire McCaskill, who previously ran as Republican-lite to keep from scaring the normals is now running to the left of Maxine Waters.Its gonna be fun times between now and the midterms. Dems gotta protect their credibility and not scream Wolf too many times, while hoping their 24/7 Rage Machine doesn't blow a vessel prematurely.Meanwhile, if Justice Kennedy retires, we get another conservative Justice, and laugh as the GOP senate boringly picks up more Republicans.There is always hope. People are paying attention, and the majority of sane Americans can't help noticing how the chicken little Democrat propagandists in the Infotainment Media Complex have been screaming the sky is falling, but so far, nothing.We are wired to detect hypocrisy and unfairness. A two-year old can spot it. It could end up very badly for the Dems, but Trump's got to fire a bunch of people and start acting Presidential.
The best answer to the question of why Trump fired Comey: Because of how badly he treated Hillary Clinton.
I'm not sure I get your drift, Waylon.Hillary should have been PROSECUTED, ex FBI-Director Comey stepped in and prevented that. I've been ticked off at him, myself, ever since.My understanding of the language tells me that that means Mr. Comey treated HRC far far FAR too WELL.
I was being sarcastic, Ft. Maybe something gets lost in the translation.
The investigation will go on, and on, and on. Even if President Trump proves to be as pure as driven snow, it will never be enough for the Pussy Hat Gang. They will be demanding another special counsel, and another, and another, because they are outraged that someone DARED to whip their Heroine Hillary Clinton !
Some quotes from a lengthy article detailing that James Comey is the ultimate inside man and a cog in the Clinton political machine:"Comey was a minor assistant US attorney in the late 90’s. He only gained power and money by being the DOJ official who “investigated” and cleared Bill Clinton of any wrong-doing in Clinton’s totally corrupt pardon (for huge payoffs) of criminal financier Marc Rich as Clinton was leaving the Presidency. This is how Comey began his career as a creature of the “swamp” years ago, as a servant of the Clintons.Comey provided “cover” for the Clintons in their gaining incredible power and wealth after leaving office through pardoning a billionaire money-launderer, arms dealer and criminal. Comey was a key piece in how the Clintons upped their corruption game and gained incredible wealth through their foundation after leaving the White House. A huge part of the scheme was giving Marc Rich a free pass when he should have spent life in prison, and that is what Comey covered-up for the Clintons. This set up Comey to be part of the corruption machine, making him powerful and wealthy.""Immediately after doing the Clinton’s dirty work as a DOJ official, Comey resigned from the DOJ and took a position as the head attorney (Counsel) of the Lockheed Martin company, a huge military contractor. While he was in that position Lockheed became a major contributor (millions) to the Clinton Foundation and its fake charity spin-offs. In return for these payment to Clinton Inc., Lockheed received huge contracts with Hillary’s state department. Comey was the chief legal officer of Lockheed throughout this period of contributions to Clinton Inc. in return for State Dept. contracts.In late 2012, after overseeing Lockheed’s successful relationship with the Hillary State Department and the resulting profits, Comey stepped down from Lockheed and received a $6 million dollar payout for his services.""The obvious conclusion is that Comey was appointed to the FBI (along with other reliable Clinton-Obama cronies) to run interference for the Clinton’s and Obama’s at the nation’s federal law enforcement agency(in conjunction with a corrupt Department of Justice). Comey was and is owned by the Clintons. He owed all of his power and wealth to being part of their machine and providing them with cover."http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=72788
Sounds perfectly plausible on the face of it, Waylon. Of course "they" threw "us" off the scent by proclaiming Mr. Comey either to be –– or to have been –– a REPUBLICAN; does anyone remember that?Given the track record of the majority of GOP elected officials, is it any wonder that designation fails in every way to give a favorable impression. The Democrats may well be The Party of Corruption, BUT the Republicans are The Party of Aiding and Abetting DEMOCRATS.BOTH houses of congress on BOH sjdes if the aisle are giving US, the American electorate, the HORSE LAUGH.
Well, then John McCain and Lindsay Graham are both Republicans. Does a party label even matter any more?
From the above link:"Lorretta Lynch was supposed to complete the coverup for Hillary as Attorney General by issuing a finding that the deliberately botched FBI “investigation” did not justify prosecution of Hillary. But someone screwed up and Bill Clinton was video’d meeting with Loretta Lynch in Arizona shortly before she was supposed to make her decision on Hillary (interference with a federal investigation), and Lynch could no longer credibly squash the Hillary scandal. The solution, give the job to James. The Clinton’s owned him and he would have to do whatever is necessary to provide cover.Comey goes on national TV and violates every rule of the FBI, the Justice Department and American law enforcement by revealing some of the FBI’s “evidence” of what Hillary did (enough to make it look like the FBI and Comey did some investigation), then declaring that there was no “intent” and clearing Hillary. He did what he was ordered to do. The Justice Department and Obama backed Comey’s coverup and it looked like Hillary had survived the scandal.""Then, right before the election, the NYPD obtained pervert Anthony Wiener’s laptop and found classified emails from Hillary on the laptop. The NYPD began leaking details to new-media outlets, and the story was about to explode. Comey once again stepped in to cover Hillary. He short-circuited the NYPD leaks by publicly acknowledging the laptop and the emails, but then claimed just days later that hundreds of thousands of emails had all been reviewed and “nothing new” was on the laptop. Once again, he had done his job. Providing cover and FBI “protection” for Hillary on the newest scandal when it broke.If Hillary had won, Comey would have kept right on providing cover for the corruption of the Clinton machine. He would have kept the FBI paralyzed, prevented the Clinton Fund from being investigated, and continued to do his job as the Clinton’s personal scandal eraser at the FBI.""The Swamp and its bottom-dwelling denizens realize they are at risk from this political outsider who is not connected to the uni-party machines. Before Trump takes office, a “failsafe” plan is implemented to ruin Trump’s administration and try to force him out of the Presidency. The key players committed to the plan are the democrat politicians, the RINO establishment, the media, the Obama-Clinton operatives imbedded throughout the intelligence agencies and the entire bureaucracy, and most importantly, the Obama DOJ and JAMES COMEY. The scheme is to smear Trump with Russian “connections,” through a fake FBI “investigation” and more importantly, to trap him into a charge of criminal interference with the FBI. COMEY IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE IN THE SCHEME TO TAKE DOWN TRUMP."Sounds about right to me.
Again, all of that sounds perfectly plausible, Waylon. of course, "knowing something and "proving" it are two different animals. We have to remember, as Mr. Reagan humorously said, "The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."YES! and the Secret of their Success is grounded in their astounding ability to prevaricate with a straight face before witnesses, and PERSIST in promoting their malicious, outrageous, invariably erroneous assertions with ever increasing vigor and intensity, until finally their BIG LIE gets almost universally ACCEPTED as the TRUTH.
I don't think political argument needs to be treated like a criminal court. More a civil court where the preponderance of evidence will suffice.After all, the enemy has been taught that "plausible denia" is all that's needed to refute facts.
[Comey] Admits He NEVER Saw It (Video)Shouldn't that be the end of all the squawking about Trump's having fired Comey to stop the Comey's revelations of the Trump-colluded-with-Russia nonsense?
Even if President Trump called Vladimir Putin to a Summit Meeting, faced him, took out a pistol and SHOT PUTIN DEAD –– on CAMERA –– the ENEMEDIA in COLLUSION wth the DemonRats, the RINO's, the Professoriat, the Kampus Kutups, and the Moronocracy would STILL insist –– shrilly and with even greater intensity –– that President Trump was only able to beat Hillary Clinton because he got "help" from "The Russians."And, YES! It really IS just THAT bad.
You can blame liberals and Democrats and the media all you like, but they don't have any real power. It's in the GOP's hands, and they certainly didn't want things to go this way. They don't want Trump's supporters, so vital to their political triumph in 2016, to turn on them, to blame them for a ruined Trump Presidency. Sure, they'd prefer a President Pence, but not at such a price. Victim Mentality was the key to Trump's success. In this case, Trump is Jesus, the Dems and Media are the Jews, but the GOP are the Romans, and in the end, the Romans are the final word will hold hold the final blame in the eyes of Trump's supporters. Trump doesn't know what he's doing and he has and had some bad eggs around him. Trump is also a terrible judge of character. Flynn already had a reputation for being untrustworthy, incompetent, and disloyal. Manafort had a long history of terribly bad behavior and terribly bad connections with some of the worst characters in the world. The presence of both these men shows Trump is either a little dumb, or has been corrupted in some very bad way, or both.If a President Hillary Clinton had done all the exact same things, associated with all these exact same people, conservatives and Republicans would be screaming for her head. And what's worse - these are in fact serious matters. They'd be right, for once! They'd have every right and responsibility to ensure we don't have a White House compromised by foreign interests, especially the notoriously corrupt Russian regime. The hypocrisy here is just too thick. It's to the point of mental derangement, dizzying cognitive dissonance.JMJ
Save the world, Jersey. Just drop a dime into the Obama Foundation and counter-act the Republican power structure...
Kind of a non sequitur there, Thersites. Sounds like the dissonance is affecting you too...JMJ
It must be the Russians "brainwashing" everyone.
Meanwhile, back at the White House Press Room...
Who needs evidence when mere speculation will take you sooooo FAR!
Do you know anything about Paul Manafort? What about Flynn? Does it bother you Putin supported Trump?JMJ
Does it bother you that Wall Street supported Hillary?
...ot that the Chinese were big financial (illegal) contrubutors to Bill Clinton's presidential campaign?
How soon the Democrats forget their past sins...
THE BRIGHTEST EXCHANGE ON THIS THREAD –– so far:Jersey McJones May 19, 2017 at 5:35 PMDo you know anything about Paul Manafort? What about Flynn? Does it bother you Putin supported Trump?Thersites May 19, 2017 at 5:41 PMDoes it bother you that Wall Street supported Hillary?
Thersites, stop with the moral equivocations. I am not a representative, nor a fan, of the Clinton's, and I am no more a Democrat than Bernie Sanders.JMJ
And here you have it, folks. The Democrats keep telling their poor and struggling constituency (voters) the Republican Party is the party of the rich and yet Democratic politicians are filthy rich, in many cases multi-millionaires. Maxine Waters lives in $4.5 Million dollar mansion.
A few of the saner Democrats are trying to cool off the radicalized base, but apparently insanity has become the prevailing wind.Let me tell you this. Millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump, we still support him, and if you do manage to topple him, all hell will break loose.Simply put, we have had enough of the Democrats, the media, the academia, the bureaucrats, and the idiotic TV Late Nite Show Hosts, the Hollywood types, and the Pussy Haters who have ruined our country and Trump has promised to fix it.There will be NO Impeachment, NO Resistance Army, and NO coups!If you think you can depose him without a fight, you are wrong.We will form human barricades to keep him from leaving the White House, and we will go into the streets, if necessary and show you what it means when the normally law abiding, patriotic, tax paying, hard working American people have finally had enough.We elected him to do what he is doing, and we will NOT stand for your Bull-Shit any longer.This is a warning which you should heed.Normally, we patriotic Republicans Americans go about their business and obey the law. After 8 years of Obama's lawlessness, and lack of respect for Our Construction. no liberal/democrat/progressive is going to Impeach OUR President! Hillary LOST, and she is History! And Thank God, for that! But enough is enough, if you get us angry enough, really angry, you will reap the whirlwind.You Democrats had it all your way for EIGHT LONG YEARS, and now it's our turn. If you can't handle that reality, then you are opting out of our republican form of government and overthrowing a system that dates back to over 200 years. We will not sit back and allow you to overthrow the government, we will come to our President's defense. Also, there are a lot more of us than you think, and we're a lot more PISSED OFF than you think. If you depose Trump, it will lead to all out civil war
It would be the stupidest civil war ever. JMJ
Tell that to your Comrades
My comrades? None of my comrades would have anything to do with it. You wanna go around killing people over this stupid nonsense, be my guest. Just leave me alone. I want no part of your stupid civil war. Me and my ilk have no horse in this race.JMJ
Jersey, I have to say this: You don't HAVE any "cmrades,." You are UNIQUE –– a FORCE of NATURE, –– a Law unto Yourself. There is no one else like you.
Right back at ya', big fella! ;) If I have any "comrades," they wouldn't be carbon copies of myself anyway. They'd be people like you. That's how you avoid groupitude in the first place!JMJ
GROUPITUDE, eh?I like that –– a bright new coinage.Go to the head of the class. §;^D>
I thought you'd like that! :)JMJ

Donald Trump's politics is essentially excretory pornography, which is to say that it has its end in rapt, mindless fascination and ultimately, revulsion. Thinking about its attributes becomes an adjunct to that, stultifying the mind and betraying all sense of propriety and order; while the most austere and rational politics such as that of President Obama or the Clintons, necessarily draw their energy from the attempt to repress nationalistic excesses. The bombastic Orange Man has abandoned the thankless task of disciplining the unenlightened, and instead panders to them. History is not on his side. Enlightened progressivism must once again prevail if we are to save ourselves from reverting to great apes slinging excreta hooting at one another from the treetops.
REALLY? You don't say! How INTERESTING!How heartwarming and utterly enchanting it must be to have a mind filled with thoughts of purest gold!Of course, as a poor, benighted Denizen of the National Septic Tank, you'd never know that, would you? You poor dear!
TWO THINGS:1. INVESTIGATION constipates and derails LEGISLATION. That, I believe, is the true purpose behind all these absurd accusations, inquiries, and pending prosecution. President Trump's many enemies want to THWART his AGENDA by any means fair or foul.2. In the toxic atmosphere that is Washington, DC today an ACCUSATION is tantamount to a CONVICTION. The Left has no repect for the Law, and no intention of following it, UNLESS it can be twisted to suit THEIR particular purposes.I'm reminded of an old joke from Group Therapy: A very nice, well-mannered woman joined the group because she was always being passed over for promotions, and never shown the respect she believed was her due. She was smart, well-educated, nice looking, and hard-working, but none of that helped.Finally the therapist said to her durng one session, "Look, Kate, you've spent your whole life patiently waiting on line to get your turn, but your turn never comes. Isn't that about it?""Yes," she murmured meekly."Well, I'm here to tell you," he went on, "THERE IS NO LINE!"Sure we ahve a constitution, and hundreds of thousands of laws and millions of regulations, but they have NO MEANNG and little IMPACT, unless they are respected and obeyed. The troublemakers in society wouldn't even DREAM of standing in line to wait their turn. Instead, they just CHARGE IN and TAKE what they want, and to hell with anyone else's rights or needs.Assuming all that to be true, what LESSON might we hope to learn from it?
1 and 2 above, as well as the following bolded paragraph seem amazingly familiar. While partially defining the present they also define the previous 8 years IMO.Integrity seems the orphan in the world of politics and governance. IMO there are no orphans in the Republican party anymore and few in the Domocratic party.
INANITY, sheer SPITE and unbridled MALEVOLENCE dominate the activity of the Unhinged Left who doesn't begin to know the meaning of the word INTEGRITY.
And to those who might try to counter the argument I made above with assertions that Donald Trump has violated the strictures of the Constitution, himself, and therefore deserves no more respect or consideration than his detractors, I say THIS: As usual strict, legalistic views –– like religious fundamentalism –– ignore subtlety, obviate the possibility of nuanced thinking, and stand in the way of making worthy endeavor and solid accomplishment manifest. This TRAVESTY, –– this FARCE, –– this DEGENERATE SPECTACLE currently put on by the Sore Losers, their Devil-Inspired Sycophants, and the Moronic Masses bent solely on satisfying their Lust for Vengeance against "The Rich," and their insatiable Greed for Public Gold is once again –– as it was during "WATERGATE" –– being used to THWART a thoroughly worthwhile legislative agenda promoted by a man who means to do us GOOD.Satan's red eyes are glowing with sheer delight as he giggles his horned head off while the prissy little ethicists and dry-veined promoters of legalistic thinking busily "Strain Out Gnats and Swallow Camels" day after day after day, ad infinitum.
It’s no secret that the liberal media, particularly CNN, hates President Trump and his supporters. But sometimes their utter disgust. of these people show ther the most disgusting ways, For example, last Friday night’s edition of Anderson Coopers show on CNN he let his true feelings slip while interviewing a conservative commentator and Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord.While discussing President Trump Anderson Cooper interrupted Jeffery Lord’s commentary with a crude scatological reference:Saying: “If Trump took a dump on his desk, you would defend it, wouldn't you" Cooper said.
America’s ew First Lady Melania Trump will not wear the hijab as Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton did in Saudi Arabia.And Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir said that he welcomes her anyway.in style of clothing,”Liberals might freak out because It seems that Saudi Arabia respects President Trump a lot more than previous leaders like Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
That strikes me as very petty. Why should anyone care one way or the other?
In the last forty years or so the democrat base has recruited anarchists, hateful perverts, the profoundly ignorant and generally the dregs of society. The so called comedy shows have pushed the envelop so far that they have become nothing but unhappy angry junk promoting drug abuse and pretending to be political satire. Remember Carol Burnett show, it was really entertaining and funny and compare it to Stephen Colbert's recent filthy rant pretending to be comedy. The MSM is nothing but left wing editorials disguised as news and a tool of the democrat crazies. At least Fox fair and balanced debates and hires liberal news analysts like Juan Williams (even if he's a complete MORON) but there is no debate in CNN or the other networks. As a matter of fact CNN fired Mr. Williams for being too moderate.
Sure, but what's the point of telling us –– as so many do –– what we already know over and over and over again?
Oh NO! that’s just NOT going to Cut It! Not by a long Shot!Even a Deaf and Dumb person, or a Moron could see that he lowered his head so that they could put a Medal around his neck.It Was Obama who was an embarrassment to our great country. So why be so disingenuous about this? Clearly we know he was leaning over to receive an award as being 6 Foot 3 it was necessary! So why do you lie to us and to yourself like that?You progressives really had to dig deeper to come up with that load of crap like that and expect it to be believed.Sorry, There Was No Bowing or Even Curtsy . Trump Is 6 Feet 3 Inches Tall. When They Gave Him the Medal, Their Highest Honor. He Would Have Had to Stand on Ladder Id He Didn't Lower His Head That Inch and a Half to Receive That Honor. How Low Did Obama Go When He Received His Medal??? Oh Wait...He Didn't Receive a Medal...Just a Snub.The average Saudi male stands at 5' 2". Let it go lefties. It only makes you look like vindictive idiots.Who would have ever guessed that snowflakes would get so upset that they would have to make up lies! OH, right, that’s called “Fake News” now.
And AGAIN I say:Sure, but what's the point of telling us –– as so many do –– what we already know over and over and over again?Try, instead, to think of a effective strategy to COUNTERACT the unwarranted assault on our president, and NEUTRALIZE the incessant INSULT to our intelligence as aware. concerned, responsible adult citizens.
Unlike Obama, Trump doesn’t bow to Saudi kingWhat a difference an election can make for the respect American leaders have for our country.There were two very different outcomes when two American presidents greeted the king of Saudi Arabia.All eyes were on President Trump today as he arrived in the country for his first foreign trip.Video shows the president stepping off the plane and greeting King Salman:Trump stood up straight as Salman appeared to bow slightly.Trump’s posture stands in stark difference to President Obama’s in the early days of his presidency.Cameras captured OBAMA BOWING to King Abdullah, contorting nearly to a 90-degree angle in what many called a moment of American weakness:But unlike what the Liberals are saying, Mr. Trump lowered his head so that they were able to hang a medal around his neck,
Its obviously clear that President Trump is definitely not the traditional type of President that we have gotten to know throughout the years. He appears to be an ego-driven man who apparently believes he can be a “different type of president” – dropping in, making a decision, and then departing for Mar-a-Lago for the weekend. Perhaps he is the right man at the right time, serving to shake up the traditional politicians, our allies, and our enemies after the disastrous presidency of Barack Obama, a man who did more harm to the United States than former President Jimmy Carter who gave us the Islamo-fascist regime in Iran and helped nuclearize North Korea by interfering with Bill Clinton’s nuclear talk
THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN OBAMA’S TYRANNICALLY DISASTROUS REGIME THAT SET THE WORLD ON FIRE IN THE NAME OF ‘HOPE AND CHANGE’ AND WHAT TRUMP WANTS TO DO IN THE WORLD ARE NIGHT AND DAY.WHILE OBAMA SOUGHT TO RESHAPE THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTHERN AFRICA, REMOVING SECULAR MODERATES AND PUTTING INTO POWER THE MOST RADICAL JIHADISTS THE WORLD HAS SEEN, TRUMP HAS SAID HE WANTS TO END REGIME CHANGE, WIPE ISIS OFF THE MAP AND BRING OUR BOYS HOME.
"SECULAR MODERATES" = Vicious tyrannical regimes when a Democrat happens to be President of the US.JMJ
The Idiotic democrats doesn't have any idea that Trump has been an internationally active businessman for his entire adult life. He isn't meeting these world leaders for the first time. Some of them he has known for decades.Meanwhile the brilliant democrats show their intelligence and stability by leading one another in chants of Impeaching Trump. This is what the party of Roosevelt and Kennedy has become come to.
