AG Barr & The Never-Ending War on Trump

AG Barr is being attacked from multiple fronts for having summarized the Mueller report as not providing sufficient evidence for obstruction of justice charges against President Trump. In both mainstream media and more progressive media he’s called another Roy Cohn or just simply Trump’s personal lawyer because he used the word “spy” when describing the FBI’s surveillance of Carter Page, and perhaps others, back in 2016.

Barr also suggested that other agencies may have been involved in his testimony last week to Congress. What a shock.

For example, Jim Comey is graciously willing to give him a chance while out of the other side of his mouth suggests he's a Trump stooge. And Democrats have grilled him mercilessly in order to chip away at this credibility, a credibility built up over years of service, including AG under Bush 41.

The point this proves, is that it answers a question that anyone suspicious of the origins of the Mueller probe as well as the previous Russia investigations usually has. Where did this all start?

The answer is clear. Everywhere.

Australian diplomats in wine bars in London. A trans-Atlantic professor, Stefan Halper, who happens to have deep connections with both the CIA (and presumably other American intel agencies) as well as MI6, having been long time friends and colleagues with Sir Richard Dearlove, OBE, the former chief spy in the UK. And who happens to want reports or information or just talk with people associated with the Trump campaign. Like Page and Papadopoulos.

Another professor is the Maltese Phantom (as Lee Smith has dubbed him in RealClearInvestigations) Mifsud who may have been a Russian spy who fed information to Papadopoulos who then reportedly passed it on to Aussie diplomat Downer which gave the FBI the excuse they needed to formally start the investigation that seems to have been underway for weeks if not months previous to the summer of 2016.

But there's s problem with the narrative that Mifsud was a Russian spy. Mifsud has reportedly not been seen since 2017 or early 2018, and some groups like the DNC have suggested he has perhaps been killed, which fits the Russia collusion narrative they so wish to keep alive. Others claim he's in hiding with a new identity. Interesting that everyone wants to point the fingers at the Maltese professor as a Russian spy and no one in the Trump-Putin-Evil-Collusion camp mention anything about the numerous Russian contacts that UK ex-spy Christopher Steele (whose boss was Sir Richard Dearlove) used to compile his dossier. Many of them Russian intel operatives apparently.

There's also the State Department and the very DOJ as well as Brennan and Clapper and various ex heads of various intel agencies who to a man or a woman came out howling like a pack of rabid wolves when it became apparent that Trump was the elected president of America.

It wasn't the Deep State that tried to sink Trump. It was the whole Western Political Establishment. Not that Baby Justin Trudeau sent Mounties to spy on America's President-Elect. But they all: from Macron to Merkle, from Downer to Halper, from Sally Yates to Rod Rosenstein, from every major network except Fox to the NYT and Washington Post and LA Times, from Never Trump Republicans to Libertarian mavericks, from war heroes like the late Senator McCain, to the Bushes and fellow Texan Carla Fiorina, from 2012 opponents Obama and Romney to Hillary and most of the Tories in Westminster, from Latin American Presidents to Chinese Leaders, and on and on ...

They all wished Trump hadn't been elected.

And many despised him for winning when everyone thought he was a buffoon looking for publicity who had no real chance.

So, while it will be fascinating to find out more about how the various probes got started, the answer of who and why is very clear. And the assault on Barr is just one more skirmish in the never-ending war on Trump.

Thanks for your post AllardK.

It is amusing to listen to many in the media, and their puppets in the Democrat Party, attempting to take down AG Barr by saying he is nothing but a “political appointee”. By disparaging an official who was appointed by the president, they hope to discredit the person.

When these “fools” write, or open their mouths, they prove they deserve to be call hypocrites.

Every single cabinet member, supreme court justice, federal judge, and Federal agency head is appointed by the president; and approved by the senate.

AG Barr IS the person charged with determining, from the evidence presented, whether or not a crime has been committed and if it should be prosecuted. This is the function of every district and states attorney in the country.

The nation deserves to have full knowledge of all those involved in an attempt to steal the presidential election, or overturn the election result. Many familiar democrat names such as Clinton are being investigated.

I find no reason to not trust AG Barr. I want criminals charged, prosecuted, and sentenced if found guilty.

Perhaps Trump has finally reached a point, having appointed people who will not succumb to the establishment, where he can finally mount a case against the deep state. Maybe this is the beginning of the draining of the swamp. Maybe the cards handed out at 41’s funeral was the plug being pulled.

And then Julian Assange is transported into the picture! Some speculated he will be facing a trial. I think he will get as far as the witness box in a court of law, but he won’t be the one being tried.

Who knows? But, I find it hard to believe the deep state is still pulling the strings in this regard after Mueller admits he has come up empty.

Here is a link to the actual report. Unlike the pdf released by the White House, this one can be searched:

https://www.scribd.com/document/406729844/Mueller-Report

A couple side notes:

1) AG Barr completely discredited himself today. No one forced him. He did it to himself.
Not good.

2) Senator Richard Burr, the GOP head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, received a classified briefing about the targets of the Mueller probe, and after being given the info, immediately contacted the White House Counsel, Don McGahn.
Not good.

3) White House Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders lied repeatedly to the FBI:

“In the afternoon of May 10, 2017, deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders spoke to the President about his decision to fire Comey and then spoke to reporters in a televised press conference…Sanders said, ‘Look, we’ve heard from countless members of the FBI that say very different things’…Sanders told this Office that her reference to hearing from ‘countless members of the FBI’ was a ‘slip of the tongue.’ She also recalled that her statement in a separate press interview that rank-and-file FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey was a comment she made ‘in the heat of the moment’ that was not founded on anything.”
Pge 284

Not good. She needs to resign immediately.

In general, the SCO appears to have set the table for impeachment proceedings. Next steps:

1) Live testimony from Mueller before the House and Senate.

2) Impeachment on multiple counts. The case looks very strong for impeaching Trump for obstruction of justice. The case for impeaching for conspiracy to undermine the US elections by working with the Russians is more problematic, because as the SCO points out, the Russians attacked us, and the Trump administration welcomed the attack, and while the two worked together, there did not appear to be a formal agreement. There is still ample cause for impeachment.

Some of the Democratic leadership, including Pelosi and Hoyer, do not want to proceed for political reasons, namely, that the election is close enough to let impeachment slide. I disagree. As many have already observed, Trump is unethical, immoral, dishonest, and Un-American. He is unquestionably unfit to serve, and the SCO has provided a road map for why that is so.

“This is the end of my presidency. I’m f*cked.”

Numpty, pl. numpties
Scottish usage:
a) Someone who (sometimes unwittingly) by speech or action demonstrates a lack of knowledge or misconception of a particular subject or situation to the amusement of others.

Scotland’s favourite word, according to a poll by BT Openreach, is numpty. Derived from “numps”, an obsolete word for a stupid person, rather than the more obvious numbnuts or numbskull, the term implies general idiocy, often in my experience accompanied by windbaggery.

LOL ! Lots of Democrat talking heads on TV talking about impeachment, but there is no proof of a crime.
Even IF ALL Democrats ALL vote for impeachment, it won’t pass the Senate, unless someone can find proof of a crime that convinces enough Congress persons in the Senate to vote for impeachment.

The stock markets appear to be up a little; possibly because Trump has not been found guilty of crimes ?

Most people are happy about that, except for many Democrats and similar ilk.

What does is say about those Democrats that are sad to find out that the President of the United States of America is not found guilty of crimes?

And is their deep hatred and blind partisanship so extreme that they (including MSNBC, CNN, NBC, Rachael Madcow, and many other main stream media sources, some people in Congress (Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Jerry Nadler, Maxine Waters, Dick Blumenthal, Beto O’Rourke, Dick Blumenthal, Mazie Hirono), etc., etc., etc.) will continue to lie about alleged crimes and spew more FAKE news and conspiracy theories ? Will the grave diggers continue to dig that hole they’re in ever deeper ?

But, again, I hope the Democrats keep it up (and all of this too) … all the way to 2020.

Based on past history, Trump should be allowed to lie to a grand jury and still stay in office. He could not only grab some pussy, but actually rape many of them and physically draw blood in the process.

Democratics haven’t found anything close to perjury or rape or sexual assault by President Trump. Based on their past, the Democratics have a very long and deep row to hoe to convince me they are justified in leading an impeachment proceeding of Trump, let alone making it stick.


It seems phx8 has resorted to picking up litter off the streets and calling it grounds for impeachment. TDS anyone?

Comment #441824

The link I provided earlier in this thread gives a very useful version of the Mueller Report. Use the search function to find anything; for example, type in ‘Seth Rich.’ The document will quickly take you to the page covering this, and Assange’s attempt to pretend the leak came from inside the Democratic Party, rather than a Russian hack.

The Mueller Report is essentially a document for impeachment- IF the Democrats choose to go forward. Part I describes the Russian attack on the election and the contacts between the Russians and the Trump campaign. Part II covers numerous examples of obstruction of justice.

According to the Report, Mueller felt DOJ policy prevented him from issuing indictments for Trump. I disagree with that policy, but there you go. Because Mueller could not indict, he also felt he could not accuse, since there would be no opportunity to defend against the accusation. As a result, Mueller has thrown the matter into the lap of Congress. Here it is. Here is the evidence. Do with it what you will.

Purely as a matter of politics, Pelosi & Hoyer feel impeachment would not be worthwhile because it would interfere with the message of the 2020 campaign. It would be November before the House could impeach, and more importantly, the Democratic House leadership feels the Senate Republicans would refuse to vote for impeachment.

Again, I disagree with that reasoning. The Democrats need to do what the right thing, not the politically expedient thing. Impeachment on at least 10 counts of obstruction, along with 2 counts of Conspiracy from the SDNY leveled against Individual 1, a.k.a. Denny Davidson, a.k.a. Donald Trump, should also be included.

In the meantime, AG Barr will appear before the House May 2nd, and boy, does he have some explaining to do! He lied to the country. He did his best to mislead everyone about the Report. It is write there in writing, both in his summary versus the Report.

Sarah Sanders needs to resign immediately.

Again, use the link and try the search feature. It will take you right to page 284 and detail Sander’s lies. She made the same false claim a number of times.

One last observation, one many people have made. The so-called ‘fake news’ from WaPo and the NYT based on anonymous sources actually appears remarkably accurate. They nailed it in almost every case. Pretty good!

The only thing that matters at this point is the 2020 election, and getting a majority in the senate is even more important than the presidency. The Enemy Of The People, Cahooter and Colluder, and Stochastic Terrorist Traitor is a weakling supported by the same russians who have never stopped interfering. The reich wing party welcomes that interference, as it is the only hope of a dwindling minority holding on to power.

Side note, Dmitri Rybolovlev, Fertilizer King and sometimes resident of Monaco, who bought a $40 million property in Palm Beach from Tr-mp for $95 million and then tore down the house(he hasn’t made his money back yet after 11 years), sold a fake Leonardo to MBS for a profit of about 325 million. MBS then sold it on to his mentor, MBZ of the UAE.

phx8 and ohrealy should be pissed about one thing, but they’ve missed it entirely.

The election is more important. The number of people sitting on either side of the aisle takes precedence over their assumption Trump is guilty of committing crimes.

If any of this were true they wouldn’t have any problem getting Republicans to join in with their impeachment folly. But no. They don’t have the numbers and they need an election to get them. So we wait, and Democratics continue to cry wolf.

IF only the Democraps could persuade Pelosi to go along with impeachment?
Maybe Pelosi is smarter than she seems?

A failed impeachment endorsed by Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer, Mazi Hirono, the majority of Democrats, Bernie Sanders, Hollywood, and similar ilk, would be a great motivator for voters in 2020.

Without an attempted impeachment, Democrats still have a steep uphill climb to win the 2020 election, when the majority of independent voters look at the state of the economy, don’t have an appetite for government-run healthcare (which is already almost 50% government-run), nor a long drawn-out, baseless impeachment process, and more Democrat-fueled grid-lock.

Independents want a government that works, that can get things done, that addresses the serious issues that our country faces, and a government that is actually representing the voters.
Independent voters want continued economic growth, to keep the tax cuts, increased fairness in trade, less nonsensical bureaucratic regulations, lower unemployment, better border security, less illegal immigration.

Democrats are doing everything exactly opposite of that, and in a way, that is a good thing for 2020, because the majority of voters will reject the Democrats, many of which are pushing for socialism, the “New Green Deal”, open-borders, abolishment of ICE, etc., etc., etc.

So, many thanks to three stooges, Democrats, and similar ilk.
Keep up the great work at ensuring another Democrat failure in 2020 (similar to 2016, the “Collusion Delusion” hoax, and “manufactured crisis at the border” hoax), more of the Democrat controlled FAKE NEWS media, etc., etc., etc.

Wow the BS from our hypocritical fascist/conservatives/oligarchist/authoritarian/neo-Nazi friends here on WB is amazing.

Barr was prejudiced before he was appointed to the office. Yet Royal cannot find a reason to distrust him! Anybody surprised?

The Russian troll D. tells us “incredulous phx8 wrote: 1) AG Barr completely discredited himself today.” as if Barr didn’t discredit himself. Not only did he discredit himself for his blind loyalty to Trump he discredited our country.

The many lies throughout this thread about Trump are many, which has been the case since Trump first uttered “fake news”. That has been proven with the Mueller report. Don Jr just isn’t smart enough to form intent (that can be proven) so why charge him?

The deep sate, really Weary? The bigger problem is the Trump crime family. 3 years into his term and the swamp is worse than when Trump lied about the number of people at his inauguration. We all forget Marco Rubio was the first to pay for the Steel dossier. We all forget the special council was bi-partisan. We all forget the number of convictions of Trump crime family members.

Hanging your hats on Mueller not indicting Trump will be short lived. Unfortunately the “deep state” has already given Trump a pass and he will make it full term. Even if Congress impeaches based on the Mueller report he will stay in office.

Not because he deserves it but because the minority of Americans, hypocritical fascist/conservatives/oligarchist/authoritarian/neo-Nazi types, need Trump to complete his term. But don’t be fooled guys the majority of Americans know the Trump administration was in bed with Russians and worked with them to win the election.

The Democrats seem to be coming together in favor of impeachment, and so they should.

Pelosi & Hoyer argue it would be more expedient not to impeach, and depend on the election. They argue an impeachment could not be completed until close to the election, and that it would fail because some GOP Senators would not vote in favor.

From a practical perspective, I understand it. Usually, I will happily go along with a practical, non-ideological approach if it looks like the best solution. But that is not the case here. The biggest problem is a long-term problem. The country would be doomed to political collapse if Trump is allowed to break the law. The law breaking occurs in three areas:

1) Obstruction of Justice. 10 counts. In our Constitution, the president is charged to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” The Mueller Report- essentially a road map for impeachment- makes it painfully clear Trump repeatedly intended to break the law, and ordered his subordinates to break it. Incredibly, 11 different people refused to carry out Trump’s instructions. From a practical point of view, that is just plain scary. Trump’s subordinates are repeatedly ignoring his instructions. They are giving testimony under oath to that effect.

2) Conspiracy to Violate Campaign Finance law. 2 counts, including the illegal $130,000 payment of hush money to a p*rn star right before the election. This one is cut and dried and well documented, with canceled checks written by Trump while he was in office. No one says criminal presidents can’t be criminally stupid.

3) Conspiracy to Commit Election Fraud, i.s., “collusion.” While the Mueller Report concludes the evidence does not meet the high bar for a criminal indictment, the evidence certainly supports impeachment for committing a “high crime.” Again, failure to impeach him has scary implications. Just look at what Giuliani just said in interviews. He may be stupid and have no credibility and just make up sh*t up on the spot, but that does not make the danger of letting this go any less serious. Is it really acceptable- by ANY standard- to allow foreign adversaries to try to influence US elections by stealing material and providing it to one side more likely to advance that adversaries interest?

So it looks like the Democrats are coming around to the realizations that, whether it is politically advantageous or not, they must impeach Trump. It is clearly in the best long-term interest of the country.

Can phx8 provide the names of these “Democrats” please. I know Warren has said that, who else of prominence?

The Left simply will not accept the results of the Mueller investigation and the conclusions reached by Mueller and Barr.

We know for certain that our Pal phx8 does not hold an advanced degree in Constitutional Law, yet he second guesses those legally charged to made these kinds of decisions.

President Trump will most likely enjoy another term as president. We recognize and welcome all the good that he has already accomplished for every American and the nation; and fully expect him to work, with a new Republican congress, for more benefits to Americans.

Comment #441906

Prominent Democrats favoring impeachment include presidential candidate Castro & AOC. Most presidential candidates are on the fence. Most progressives favor it. According to polls,, 70% of Democrats favor it, and with those kinds of numbers, the presidential candidates will fall in line. The opposition to impeachment is almost entirely based on the argument that it would be more advantageous to leave Trump in office, politically wounded and ineffective. I think that is dangerous. Look at the Mueller Report and the examples of obstruction of justice. The government is not working. People are ignoring Trump and making their own decisions. This is dangerous.

The left fully accepts the Mueller Report. It is a roadmap for impeachment. AG Barr has nothing to do with anything. He will come before Congress on May 2nd and be given a chance to explain why he mislead the public by misrepresenting what the Report said. Expect demands for his resignation. He has ZERO credibility.

Regardless, Trump’s approval ratings will stay the same, in the low 40’s, at best. In the midterms that translated into a huge win for the Democrats in the House and on the state level. Unlike 2018, The Senate map will be very favorable for Democrats, so if approval ratings stay where they have been for the past two years, expect the Democrats to sweep the House, Senate, and White House.

Posted by: phx8 at April 21, 2019 5:38 PM
Comment #441907

To put Trump’s prospects in 2020 into perspective, to date he has recorded the lowest approval ratings in the history of modern polling.

Meanwhile, several states will not allow candidates on the ballot for president unless they provide tax returns.

And there are an additional 14 ongoing investigations, including two counterintelligence investigations that we know nothing about. Literally nothing. The others include ones targeting the Trump Organization and the Inauguration. Over $50 million disappeared, and the inauguration was lousy with pro-Russian Ukrainians and Russian oligarchs. Inquiring minds want to know. Investigations into Trump finances have literally just started. As far as we know, the Mueller Investigation did not deal with it.

Finally, one of the interesting things about the Mueller Report is the redactions. They seem to appear just when it is getting interesting. Kushner’s and Donald Trump Jr.’s names appear much less than everyone expected. Maybe it is just a coincidence.

“Look at the Mueller Report and the examples of obstruction of justice.”

Face it phx8, that is merely your opinion. Those legally charged with making the decision don’t see it your way. One of my main objections to Liberals and Progressives is they don’t want to follow the law, and those charged with law enforcement, unless the law and enforcers agree with them.

P.S. No one in the entire country considers AOC a “prominent” Democrat. Perhaps you confuse news coverage with prominence.

phx8 believes the Mueller report is a “roadmap for impeachment.” I will agree they need a “roadmap” to even find there own butts, but impeachment is a mere “wet dream” for you and a few Dems.

Thirty of the new Dems in the HOR are moderate and want no part of your fantasy of impeachment.

phx8 claims AG Barr has “ZERO credibility.” Yet, he is invited to give testimony before congress. Why would any Dem want to listen to someone who is unbelievable?

They could spend the next 2 years claiming Donald Trump is standing in the way of all the goodies government could give people who vote for socialists.

Meanwhile, several states will not allow candidates on the ballot for president unless they provide tax returns. Posted by: phx8 at April 21, 2019 6:02 PM

“As of February 20, 2017 legislators in 18 states (Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia) have introduced bills” to require “future presidential candidates to disclose income tax returns in order to be placed on the general election ballot.”

In the Mueller Report, the HOMs sre in alphabetical order by the name of the perpetrator of the crime.

So what?
It is currently not required, and the IRS has already been auditing Trump’s taxes every year for the last 16 years.
Democraps (and similar ilk) are just fishing, with hopes of finding a crime some where, some how, some way.
IF there were serious violations, the IRS would have already taken action against Trump (especially since the IRS was weaponized to target conservatives).
IF Trump has committed serious violations, he should be held accountable.
However, where is the proof of a crime?
The government should not be weaponized to hunt for crimes, for political purposes, when no crimes have been found, despite a waste of over 2 years of investigations.

But what do you expect from someone who writes the following:

  • [46] ohrealy wrote: The only question should be whether or not we can get back to “normal” after Putain’s puppet [Trump] is gone. He [Donald Trump] should have already been executed by now.

  • [49] ohrealy wrote: ohrealy wrote: The problem with the [U.S./Mexico] border is that it attracts crazy reich wingers who are looking for trouble, just like Trump the FILTH’s disciple in New Zealand, and all his other terrorist murderers.

RF,
“Look at the Mueller Report and the examples of obstruction of justice.”
“Face it phx8, that is merely your opinion.”

No, it is not ‘merely my opinion.’ Once again, here is the link to a searchable Mueller Report:

https://www.scribd.com/document/406729844/Mueller-Report

Search ‘Obstruction of Justice,’ or go to the beginning of the section on page 220. Specific examples begin on page 228.

You write: “Those legally charged with making the decision don’t see it your way.”

ONLY Congress can make this determination about the president, and that has to be done through the process of impeachment. The Mueller investigation cannot indict a president, and Mueller took that to mean the SCO could not even accuse a president of crimes. I think that’s wrong, but that was the guideline he used, the DOJ policy. That means, once again, that ONLY Congress can make the determination.

An interesting option would be to wait until Trump is out of office, and then charge him. You know, “Lock him up.” After all the terrible, Neo-Nazi style chants at rallies about locking up HRC, Trump supporters would surely be in favor of a criminal prosecution for Trump.

You write: “No one in the entire country considers AOC a “prominent” Democrat. Perhaps you confuse news coverage with prominence.”

Lol. AOC is on the cover of this week’s Time Magazine. ‘Prominent’ means ‘famous’ or ‘important.’ She is receiving so much coverage because people like what she is saying, and polls show her stands are very popular.

“phx8 claims AG Barr has “ZERO credibility.” Yet, he is invited to give testimony before congress. Why would any Dem want to listen to someone who is unbelievable?”

Barr will be asked to explain the discrepancies between his Summary and the actual Mueller Report. It appears Barr was intentional misleading, and that is putting it kindly. He will be given the opportunity to explain himself. That should be fun.

As for predictions, I predicted the Democrats would pick up 45 seats in the House, and they picked up 41. That was an outstanding call. The only other person on WB to predict was Roy Ellis, and he predicted the GOP would win the House, which is also what Limbaugh and other hatertainers said. And what that goes to show you is using good sources of information results in good calls, and bad sources results in terrible calls.

The sad thing is any politician with a drop of integrity would resign from office based on the actions of the Trump campaign as detailed in the Mueller report. The country shouldn’t be forced to impeach Trump. But alas he is without honor and integrity.

What we are doing is mincing words here. Did Mueller find proof that Russia and Trump planned and plotted together? No. But everything short of that was found.. Is that what we want from a president?

Well, phx8? What happened to those arrests? They are not the president of the U.S. Just how credible are your claims they are criminals and traitors?

Numerous racist statements (2 or more by ohrealy, 13 or more by phx8, and too many to count by j2t2) are all memorialized here.

Ed O’hrealy (ohrealy) once provided (many years ago) his own website ( ohrealy.blogspot.com ) in the URL of his WatchBlog.com comment, and therefore, I looked at it.

ohrealy was once (years ago) cutting and pasting my cooments from WatchBlog.com to his ohrealy.blogspot.com site (unbeknownst to me for a while), and ohrealy admitted to doing it when I asked him about it.

ohrealy’s website has a profile link that contains a link named: “Ed O PLANET OF THE APES”.

Many of ohrealy’s statements can be found on WatchBlog, and via links on his own blog (i.e. ohrealy.blogspot.com), and via Google searchs on “Ed O PLANET OF THE APES”.

So, Ed O’hrealy (ohrealy) is either lying, or does not remember making all of these statements.

WW,
I suspect you do not know what is in the Mueller Report, or even its basic purpose.

Read some of the Report. Even a page or two. If you use the search feature for the Report linked twice in this thread, you will be able to access it. The search feature has a small magnifying glass inside a horizontal box, upper right hand side. Type in a name. The list consists of links.

There is no point in repeating Hannity or Limbaugh or Levin or FOX talking points, or whatever. Look at the Report. Read a paragraph or two.

I bet Mueller is laughing his A$$ off at the democrats. IMO he set them up with the obstruction narrative by not exonerating Trump, which he is not supposed to do, he only job is to prosecute or not prosecute. The point is now congressional democrats are all in a fuss now to impeach when there was no crime to begin with. IMO Pelosi and Hoyer realize this and are trying to be the adults of the party. They know this will hurt them with the elections coming up.

If Don Jr. and Kushner were what you have insisted they are for over 2 years, traitors and criminals, I would not have to read the report to know you are correct. That fact would be spread across the MSM for the next 2 years, phx8.

Instead, people are still trying to make up charges against Trump and even trying to insist they need no such charges.

Right. Many Democrats are searching for a crime, which is an abuse of the legal system.
That may work well with their brain-washed voter-base, but not independents (who decide most elections).

But, that’s a good thing. Hopefully, Democrats will continue to behave like a bunch of crybabies and losers, and keep pushing the discredited hoax, which will help ensure that the real crimes and weaponization of government departments and agencies (by Democrats and similar ilk within the deep-state) are eventually held accountable.

Democrats thought for 600+ days that Mueller was going to be their “White Knight” and bring down Trump with his merry band of Democrat lawyers. Instead they got the “Royal Shaft up their A$$”. More investigations is their rally cry now . They want his personal finance records noq. They think obstruction happened of a NON CRIME happened because Trump THOUGHT about firing Mueller or asked others to but didn’t. The question is how can you obstruct an investigation when you give it 1.4 million pages of documents, don’t evoke executive privilege, and not hinder anyone from testifying. Is thinking about doing something now a crime? I guess it is to the left wing Looney.

Weary, while Obama may be the smartest man in the room god and savior is such an exaggeration. In fact it was an issue to the Obama administration and they did attempt to curtail Russian interference in the 2016 election. Here is the link you requested.


Roayl you have a point when you tell us “Wow…what a whopper. How could we forget what never happened j2t1?” It wasn’t Rubio it was his sponsor that paid for the dirt on Trump. The interesting thing is Weary asks why the Obama administration didn’t do anything and you tell us the Clinton campaign team did try to get to the bottom of the Trump/Russia connection prior to the election.

KAP tells us “The point is now congressional democrats are all in a fuss now to impeach when there was no crime to begin with.” yet couldn’t the same thing be said about Bill Clinton and the repubs impeaching Clinton when there was no crime to begin with?

All this blathering from our hypocritical fascist/conservatives/oligarchist/authoritarian/neo-Nazi friends about making up charges is laughable. The issue that you guys seem to be avoiding is very simple. The Mueller report tells us what they found out about Trump and his association with Russia. Read it and ask yourself is this the way we want our elections to be from here on out? Ask yourself if Trump is the standard for future presidents and is that what you want. Zero integrity. Zero honesty. Unethical, immoral, and no credibility is what we have as president is that acceptable to you guys? Even when it could be a Dem running things the next time around?

What is the crime Trump violated, and what is the proof?

IF a crime was committed, and there is proof of it, why did Mueller, and entire team of Democrats, and William Barr all say there was no evidence of “Collusion” and “Obstruction”? Where in the Mueller report is there proof of a crime?

Likewise with the issue of Tax Returns. Ha ha! Jerry Nadler’s (and others also afflicted with TDS) demands for Trump’s taxes just expired. The IRS has been auditing Trump’s taxes for every year for the past 16 years, so IF there was a violation, the weaponized-IRS would have done something about it a long time ago.

Or perhaps the problem is simple incompetence of a wasteful, bloated government-run legal system of nightmare proportions? How many D.C. lawyers, and how many years does it take to search and find dirt on the President ? HHHMMMmmmm … perhaps the real problem is that there are no crimes by Trump, but many crimes by some Democrats, the deep-state that weaponized many departments and agencies? Perhaps the next investigations should be launched to determine how the entire “Russia Collusion Delusion” got started, and persisted for years?

What do you say about a person who insists the Earth is flat, and when you show them a picture of the Earth from space, they still insist that the Earth is flat?

At any rate, many thanks to “I don’t call people names” j2t2, “open-borders” phx8, and “memoryless” Ed O’hrealy for being the gifts that keep on giving. Their efforts are doing wonders for winning voters over to their way of thinking! Keep up the great work!

After reading a couple of these very strange posts of “d.a.n.”, I’m concluding that this “d.a.n.” is also the new fake “Roy Ellis” whose posts changed so radically a couple of years ago. Otherwise, why would he be so concerned about some of the criticisms directly mainly at the new fake “Roy Ellis”.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/04/mueller-report-journalism-was-right.html

The Mueller report reads as a 400-page confirmation of years’ worth of reporting on D-n-ld Tr-mp.

Tr-mp has been adamant about discrediting the media because the media has discredited him. “I do it to discredit you all and demean you all, so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you,” Tr-mp told Lesley Stahl in 2016…. the Tr-mp campaign was eager to get its hands on this Hillary dirt(FYI the “dirt” was that HRC didn’t agree in private with the public positions of the government in wish she had been serving) .. Rick Gates told Mueller’s team “that in the days before June 9, 2016, Tr-mp Jr. announced at a regular morning meeting of senior campaign staff and Tr-mp family members that he had a lead on negative information about the Clinton Foundation.” … on June 6 or 7 …Tr-mp Jr. told his father that a meeting to obtain adverse information about Clinton was going forward.” Tr-mp has denied that he was aware of the Russian meeting…January 2018, the Times reported that Tr-mp had ordered White House Counsel Donald McGahn to fire Robert Mueller in June 2017, only to back off when McGahn refused to do so. “Fake news, folks. Fake news. A typical New York Times fake story,” Tr-mp responded at the time, and his cable news champions took up the same refrain. “Haven’t we had a number of these Washington Post, New York Times stories end up being debunked with their phony, you know, anonymous sourcing?” Hannity said on Fox News the night the story broke. “Yeah, these are not reliable reporters,” Hannity’s guest Gregg Jarrett replied….The reporters were reliable. The Mueller report confirmed not just that Tr-mp had ordered McGahn to get rid of Mueller but that he later tried to get McGahn to publicly deny the whole episode. McGahn told Mueller’s team that Tr-mp had called him twice at home “and on both occasions directed him to call Rosenstein and say that Mueller had conflicts that precluded him from serving as Special Counsel.” McGahn did not want to do this, but Tr-mp was insistent, “saying something like, ‘Call Rod, tell Rod that Mueller has conflicts and can’t be the Special Counsel.’ McGahn recalled the President telling him ‘Mueller has to go’ and ‘Call me back when you do it.’ ” The Times was right…September 2017, the Post reported that in July 2016, Paul Manafort, who was then Tr-mp’s campaign chairman, had “offered to provide briefings on the race to a Russian billionaire [Oleg Deripaska] closely aligned with the Kremlin,” apparently as a backdoor way of settling Manafort’s personal debts. On his Fox News program the day after the Post story was published, Hannity jeered the fact that the story had appeared in “the Washington Post—you know, they have so many false reports,” …According to the Mueller report, Deripaska had previously put money into an investment fund helmed by Manafort. The fund subsequently failed, and “litigation between Manafort and Deripaska ensued.” Rick Gates told Mueller that “Manafort thought his role on the Campaign could help ‘confirm’ that Deripaska had dropped the Pericles lawsuit.” Manafort himself told Mueller that “if Trump won, Deripaska would want to use Manafort to advance whatever interests Deripaska had in the United States and elsewhere.”…Cohen lied, that he did so at what he believed to be the president’s behest, that the president knew he was giving false testimony, and that the president’s lawyers encouraged that testimony. In his report, Mueller wrote that Tr-mp’s attorney told Cohen to ‘stay on message, and not contradict the President.’ ” The report also noted that Cohen, whose legal bills were initially “being paid by the Tr-mp Organization,” was told by Tr-mp’s attorney that the support would cease “if he ‘went rogue,’ ” and that “if he stayed on message, the President had his back.” …

ohrealy, so where is the proof of a crime by Trump?

What do you seem to know that Mueller, his team of dozens of D.C. lawers, A.G. William Barr, and others can’t see?
Do you have a degree in law?
Exactly which sentence in that cut-and-paste nonsense, or anywhere in the Mueller report, is there any proof of a crime by Trump?

“memoryless” Ed O’hrealy wrote: Otherwise, why would he be so concerned about some of the criticisms directly mainly at the new fake “Roy Ellis”.
I live in Texas, Roy Ellis does not.
Roy Ellis is a friend, who never sinks to the level of “memoryless”-ohrealy, “I don’t call people names”-j2t2, and “open borders”-phx8, as clearly illustrated here by ohrealy’s, j2t2’s, and phx8’s own comments (which they also claim to be proud of).

Roy Ellis is smart to ignore the ohrealys, j2t2s, phx8s, and similar ilk.
However, I cannot resist shining a bright light on the hypocrisy, racism, hatred, and depravity of the ohrealys, j2t2s, phx8s, and similar ilk.
Also, the ohrealys, j2t2s, phx8s, and similar ilk are the gifts that keep on giving.

Therefore, many thanks to the ohrealys, j2t2s, phx8s, and similar ilk, for being the gifts that keeps on giving, and please keep up the great work. It is truly doing wonders for winning voters over to your demented way of thinking!

“I bet Mueller is laughing his A$$ off at the democrats. IMO he set them up with the obstruction narrative by not exonerating Trump, which he is not supposed to do, he only job is to prosecute or not prosecute.”

Thanks Rich. You got it exactly right. Our Lefty Pals remain confused, befuddled, and bewildered. Hate will do that.

Five hours of Town Hall politicians on CNN must have left everyone exhausted and confused. I watched some of each candidates hour so I could confirm what I have read about them.

The candidate that stood head and shoulders above them all was the mayor of South Bend…Pete B. He sounded like one who had actually ran something besides his mouth.

The very best line in the entire pony show was by Mayor Pete. The CNN moderator asked him some “loaded” question. Mayor Pete responded (paraphrasing) “I may not be much of a fisherman, but I know “bait” when I see it.”

Mayor Pete refused to take the bait and the CNN moderator looked silly. The audience roared with laughter as did I.

Mayor Pete, as he is referred to, is the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana. South Bend is coming close, if not is, the murder capitol of the country. Every day someone is shot. I think it was yesterday there were 3 separate shootings in South Bend.

Mayor Pete is also being excoriated for turning all the one-way streets into 2 way streets and adding roundabouts throughout the city. Many are criticizing the move as wasteful and unnecessary. Does that sound familiar?

Mayor Pete’s claim to fame is his sexual preference and his looks. He considers himself the wife of his husband. How would that come across on the world stage if he were to stand up against radical Muslim terrorists?

Mayor Pete has come out strong against VP Pence for his religious beliefs. Out of the blue these attacks come. I believe, while he came out as a presidential contender in the beginning, he has been told he won’t make it past a VP nomination. Hence, the attacks on Pence.

He is known as the Gay Mayor, not the successful Mayor, so I don’t think he’s going anywhere.

His analysis is filled with important revelations about our nation’s leader, including disturbing insights into his childhood, his family, his business dealings, and his unusual relationship with alternative facts, including how

* The absence of a strong maternal force during childhood has led to Tr-mp’s remarkable lack of empathy and disregard for women’s boundaries;
* His compulsion to polarize America has grown out of the way he perceives the world as full of deceitful and destructive persecutors;
* His inability to tolerate the pain of frustration has triggered his belief that omnipotence will finally remove it;
* His idiosyncratic use of language points to larger issues than even his tweets might suggest.

… Dr. Frank calls attention to the underlying narcissism, misogyny, deception, and racism that drive the President who endangers it.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/sep/29/trump-on-the-couch-justin-frank

When he was about 10, 11, 12, D-nny would sneak into New York in a delinquent way and go to shows with a friend of his. Then he saw West Side Story and that got him very excited. He decided to start buying switchblades and developed a fairly elaborate collection of large ones and his father eventually found out and just read them the riot act and made arrangements to send him off to military school.”

Tr-mp manifests what Sigmund Freud identified as “repetition compulsion…People unconsciously repeat inner conflicts that they’ve had that didn’t get resolved when they were younger,” he says. “Tr-mp is re-enacting his teenage impeachment fears and is now doing it with [special counsel Robert] Mueller and all these people. He was going to do everything he could to sneak into Manhattan to undermine his father to do whatever he wanted, and now he’s doing it with Mueller. Instead of being thrown out of the Jamaica Estates, he’s afraid of being thrown out of the White House.”

“He is infantile. He’s dominated by impulses, by suspicion, by a need to always win, by a fantasy that he has to do everything himself, which is what you see in children when they say: ‘Don’t help me, mommy. I’m going tie my own shoes.’ Then you wait for 45 minutes for the shoes to get tied before you can get out of the house. He’s, like, anti-dependent.”

“He is known as the Gay Mayor, not the successful Mayor, so I don’t think he’s going anywhere.”

Thanks for your comments Weary. I gave “my” impression after listening to the Town Hall Five. I didn’t base my opinion on anything else but what I heard at the Townhall.

Gay or straight, man or women, young or old, made no difference to me. I based all on what I heard at just this Townhall.

If you didn’t watch the Town Hall Weary, that’s fine. I did, and wrote about what I observed.

Comment #442038

NYT Charlie Savage April 23, 2019

WASHINGTON — The report by Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, explored about a dozen episodes in which President Tr-mp’s actions raised concerns about obstruction of justice.

Mr. Mueller stopped short of concluding whether Mr. Tr-mp committed that crime, but the report made clear that others can use the evidence to make that call. Mr. Mueller’s investigators made an oblique reference to possible impeachment proceedings and noted that after Mr. Tr-mp leaves office, he will lose the temporary immunity the Justice Department says sitting presidents enjoy. Mr. Mueller cited that factor as barring him from making accusations now.

The report evaluated the evidence based on three criteria: The act must be obstructive, linked to an investigation and undertaken with a corrupt motive. Investigators also explored countervailing evidence that Mr. Tr-mp’s lawyers could use to argue that the acts fell short of a crime.

Mr. Mueller also devoted over a dozen pages to rebutting a sweeping argument offered by Mr. Tr-mp’s lawyers — and Attorney General William P. Barr, who has said he believes Mr. Tr-mp did not violate obstruction laws: that Congress cannot make it a crime for a president to abuse his official powers to impede an investigation.

Here is a look at several of the more significant events the report explores:

Tr-mp tried to fire Mueller.

After learning in June 2017 that he was under investigation for obstruction of justice, Mr. Tr-mp ordered the White House counsel Donald F. McGahn II over the phone to have the Justice Department fire Mr. Mueller based on the president’s views that the special counsel had conflicts of interest. Mr. Tr-mp backed off after Mr. McGahn refused to carry out the directive and prepared to resign in protest. [Reference: Vol. 2, Pages 77-90]

Obstructive?

Potentially. While acknowledging that removing him would not have prevented the investigation from continuing, Mr. Mueller wrote that such an act nevertheless may have “had the potential to delay further action in the investigation, chill the actions of any replacement special counsel or otherwise impede the investigation.”

Linked to an investigation?

Yes.

Improper intent?

Yes. Among other things, the report cited evidence that Mr. Tr-mp “knew he should not have made those calls” because Mr. McGahn had warned him he should use his personal lawyers to submit any conflict complaints, not use his official powers to remove the special counsel.

Bottom line: While Mr. Mueller hedged a bit on the first of the three criteria, the report suggests there is sufficient evidence to ask a grand jury to consider charging this act as illegal obstruction.

Tr-mp pushed McGahn to deny the attempt to fire Mueller.

Mr. Tr-mp’s attempt to fire Mr. Mueller came to light in news reports in January 2018. Mr. Tr-mp repeatedly pushed Mr. McGahn to state that the president had not directed him to fire Mr. Mueller and to write a memo “for our records” denying the reports. Although Mr. Tr-mp threatened to fire him if he did not comply, Mr. McGahn refused, saying the articles were accurate. [Vol. 2, Pages 113-120]

Obstructive?

Potentially. By pushing Mr. McGahn to issue a statement and create a written record denying facts that he knew Mr. McGahn believed to be true, Mr. Tr-mp’s action “would qualify as an obstructive act if it had the natural tendency to constrain McGahn from testifying truthfully or to undermine his credibility as a potential witness if he testified consistently with his memory, rather than with what the record said.”

Linked to an investigation?

Yes. Mr. Tr-mp knew that Mr. McGahn had already told investigators about the firing attempt and was likely to talk to them again, and his push for an internal memo “indicates the president was not focused solely on a press strategy, but instead likely contemplated the ongoing investigation and any proceedings arising from it.”

Improper intent?

Yes. “Substantial evidence indicates that in repeatedly urging McGahn to dispute that he was ordered to have the special counsel terminated, the president acted for the purpose of influencing McGahn’s account in order to deflect or prevent further scrutiny of the president’s conduct towards the investigation.”

Bottom line: The report suggests there is sufficiently plausible evidence to ask a grand jury to consider charging Mr. Tr-mp with attempted obstruction.

After the indictment of his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Mr. Tr-mp repeatedly dangled the possibility of a pardon and publicly praised him for not “flipping.” Mr. Manafort eventually pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with investigators, but prosecutors said he violated that deal and continued to lie to them. [Vol. 2, Pages 122-133]

Obstructive?

Potentially. The report said that “there is evidence that the president’s actions had the potential to influence Manafort’s decision whether to cooperate with the government” and that his statements “suggested that a pardon was a more likely possibility if Manafort continued not to cooperate.”

Linked to an investigation?

Yes. Mr. Tr-mp’s “conduct towards Manafort was directly connected to the official proceedings involving” Mr. Manafort’s criminal trial and occurred as the special counsel continued to oversee grand jury proceedings into the Tr-mp campaign and Russia.

Improper intent?

Yes. The evidence indicates that Mr. Tr-mp “intended to encourage Manafort to not cooperate with the government,” the report said.

Bottom line: The report suggests there is sufficiently plausible evidence to ask a grand jury to consider charging Mr. Tr-mp with obstruction.

Trump tried to gut the investigation.

In June 2017, Mr. Tr-mp twice asked his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to convey a private order to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who had recused himself from overseeing the Russia investigation. Mr. Sessions was to intervene and limit Mr. Mueller’s jurisdiction to a look at preventing future election interference, ending scrutiny of the Tr-mp campaign’s links to Russia in 2016 and whether Mr. Tr-mp obstructed justice. But Mr. Lewandowski delivered neither message. [Vol. 2, Pages 90-98]

Obstructive?

Potentially. Mr. Tr-mp’s directives “indicate that Sessions was being instructed to tell the special counsel to end the existing investigation into the president and his campaign.”

Linked to an investigation?

Yes. It was public knowledge by then that Mr. Mueller was working with a grand jury.

Improper intent?

Yes. “Substantial evidence” indicates that Mr. Tr-mp was trying “to prevent further investigative scrutiny of the president’s and his campaign’s conduct.” Reaching out to Mr. Sessions surreptitiously via an outside loyalist rather than relying on official White House channels “provides additional evidence of his intent.”

Bottom line: The report suggests there is sufficiently plausible evidence to ask a grand jury to consider charging Mr. Tr-mp with attempted obstruction.

Trump urged Comey to drop Flynn investigation.

In February 2017, Mr. Tr-mp cleared the Oval Office to privately discuss with James B. Comey, then the F.B.I. director, his former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn. The president said, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” which Mr. Comey interpreted as a direction to drop an investigation into whether Mr. Flynn had lied to the F.B.I. about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. Mr. Tr-mp has denied the account, which Mr. Comey detailed in contemporaneous notes and later testified about under oath. [Vol. 2, Pages 24-48]

Obstructive?

Potentially. The report cited “substantial evidence” corroborating Mr. Comey’s account and said that asking him to close the Flynn investigation may have “had the tendency to impede the administration of justice by shutting down an inquiry that could result in a grand jury investigation and a criminal charge.” (Mr. Flynn eventually pleaded guilty.)

Linked to an investigation?

Yes. The report cited reasons Mr. Tr-mp could have reasonably foreseen that the Flynn investigation was likely to lead to a grand jury inquiry or prosecution.

Improper intent?

Unclear. While clearing the room made Mr. Tr-mp look furtive, the report said the investigation failed to gather conclusive evidence that the president had any personal stake in the outcome of an investigation into Mr. Flynn. For example, it remains unclear whether Mr. Tr-mp was implicated in Mr. Flynn’s lies, and the evidence did “not establish that Flynn otherwise possessed information damaging to the president that would give the president a personal incentive to end the F.B.I.’s inquiry into Flynn’s conduct.”

Bottom line: The report appears to raise doubts that the investigation found sufficient evidence establishing Mr. Tr-mp’s intent to move forward with an obstruction charge.

Tr-mp fired Comey.

In May 2017, Mr. Tr-mp fired Mr. Comey. The White House initially claimed he had done so on the recommendation of senior Justice Department officials who were critical of Mr. Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, but Mr. Tr-mp soon admitted he had already made the decision and was instead thinking about the Russia investigation. [Reference: Vol. 2, Pages 62-77]

Obstructive?

Unclear. While the firing allowed Mr. Tr-mp to nominate someone else to take over the agency investigating links between his campaign and Russia, the inquiry continued and its day-to-day managers were several layers below. The report stated: “The anticipated effect of removing the F.B.I. director, however, would not necessarily be to prevent or impede the F.B.I. from continuing its investigation.”

Linked to an investigation?

Yes. Mr. Comey had announced that the F.B.I. was investigating Russia’s interference in the election, including links between Russia and the Trump campaign, and Mr. Tr-mp knew that Mr. Flynn was still under a criminal investigation despite having urged Mr. Comey to let Mr. Flynn go.

Improper intent?

Unclear. The report cites “substantial evidence” that the catalyst was Mr. Tr-mp’s frustration that Mr. Comey would not publicly state that the president was not personally under investigation. But it reached no clear answer about the nature of Mr. Tr-mp’s underlying motive: “The initial reliance on a pretextual justification could support an inference that the president had concerns about providing the real reason for the firing, although the evidence does not resolve whether those concerns were personal, political or both.”

Thanks Ed O’hrealy.
Unfortunately (for you), it does not prove that any crime was committed.

But thanks for being the gift that keeps on giving.
Keep digging (i.e. that hole you’re standing in) ever deeper, and maybe you will eventually find a crime that Mueller, his team of dozens of Democrat D.C. lawyers, FBI, DOJ, CIA, IRS, Congress, William Barr, and Dr. Justin Frank could not find during the past 2+ years. Good Luck!

However, IF you want to find some real crimes, look H E R E.

And how about these lies (some of the biggest whoppers of all time), such as:

  • “If you like your doctor, you can keep him, PERIOD.”;
  • “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it, PERIOD!”;
  • “Unlike some, I actually try to state facts. I believe in facts. I believe in a fact-based reality, and a fact-based politics.”;
  • “[Health Insurance] Premiums will be lowered by $2500”;
  • Over 70% of Obamacare signups are actually from people who LOST their insurance BECAUSE of Obamacare in the first place!;
  • “I did not say you could keep your health care.” [Regardless that 29 recorded videos show Obama did say EXCACTLY that];
  • “Obamacare will not be used to fund abortions.”;
  • “I am not after your guns.”; [D.C. 23-year-old gun ban, which Obama had supported, was over-turned by the Supreme Court];
  • “I will close Gitmo.” (Guantanamo); [Almost! Obama released many from Gitmo, and they went on to commit more terrorist acts, killing and injuring more people (www.politifact.com/florida/statements/2017/jan/25/cory-gardner/how-many-released-guantanamo-bay-prisoners-commit-/); As of 23-JAN-2017, several Americans have been killed by the released terrorists; the federal government reported that 17.6% (122 individuals) had been “confirmed of re-engaging” and 12.4% (86 individuals) were suspected of re-engaging in terrorism].
  • in 2013, under the direction of Barack Obama, The Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 36,007 illegal immigrants who had been convicted of murder, s*xual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault, and drunk or drugged driving (source: cis.org/Report/ICE-Document-Details-36000-Criminal-Alien-Releases-2013 );

    J2, we will see when the rest of the on going investigations play out from both sides. We’ll see how ethical, moral, credible the last administration was.

    Nice evasive response KAP. 3 years into the Trump administration and your best argument is “well maybe Obama”!! LoL. Why not just answer the questions? Ask yourself is this the way we want our elections to be from here on out? Ask yourself if Trump is the standard for future presidents and is that what you want. Zero integrity. Zero honesty. Unethical, immoral, and no credibility is what we have as president is that acceptable to you guys? Even when it could be a Dem running things the next time around? Do you want foreign governments hacking emails, creating lies, providing propaganda as a norm?


    All your childish name calling is getting you nowhere you and others like you are as d.a.n says the gift that keeps on giving.

    KAP what name calling? If you are referring to “All this blathering from our hypocritical fascist/conservatives/oligarchist/authoritarian/neo-Nazi friends about making up charges is laughable.” then understand I am simply following Royal’s lead in grouping the different factions of the right wing together, not calling anyone anything. Now hypocritical may be name calling but when it is an accurate reflection of the facts it is more of a description.

    I mean you guys have changed your standards since Clinton and the investigations the right wing led to impeach him. Which is hypocrisy in my book. You know you failed to address this point in your response, just like all the rest of the bunch here on WB, choosing instead to make claims about calling names.

    As far as the gift that keeps on giving you need to understand that anything I have said, when taken in context, I stand behind. D.’s continual repeating of my gifts works for me. If you go back through this thread you might also see it was D. himself who started the name calling. He always does this when he has only weak arguments.

    Maybe one day you guys will understand the right wing has been name calling for years and still to this day call names. Trump has legitimatized it. He just can’t take it when he is on the receiving end, just like his followers.

    j2t2, your link doesn’t list anything substantial that Obama did to Russia.

    But it did help to clear up the misconception you had when you stated “Where’s the links from you detailing how Obama, a sitting president, your god and savior, the smartest man in the room, did nothing either? It just wasn’t an issue to Obama, was it?”.

    It list a plea to be good, and then goes on to blame it on “spinning plates”. Your link then ends with, of course, everything Trump. It really wasted my time. Do you have anything else, or was that your entire wad?

    If it cleared up your misconception was it really a waste of time Weary? It ends with perhaps because the issue is about Trump not Obama. I realize you guys have the attitude that everything is Obama’s fault but that is a real waste of time IMHO. I mean it was Trumps campaign coordinating with the Russians, it was the Russians helping by fabricating even more lies than Trump to sway the vote.

    I wonder what you guys would have said if Obama enacted some sort of marshal law to interfere with Trump/Russian 2016 election campaign. You guys are pi**ed that the FBI started looking at the Trump campaign as it is. I can only imagine the conspiracy theories about the deep state and Clinton you guys would come…. oh right you did anyways.

    LOL ! Good luck with that.
    What is not at all difficult to prove is that j2t2, ohrealy, and phx8 make repetitious comments that are racist, vulgar, hateful, and depraved, and what better proof is there than their very own statements as shown H E R E.

    j2t2 complains that his statements are taken out of context, but the hyperlinks to many of his comments are included for those that want to see the full context.
    So once again, that is yet another lie by j2t2.
    Besides, how is context relevant to any of the following statements by j2t2?:

    • j2t2 wrote: “Jeezus what a bunch of f**ktards these repubs are.”
    • j2t2 wrote: When I call out some repub for being a f**ktard or something, you start sniveling!
    • j2t2 wrote: He [Trump] promised you so much and … well f**k you … he is too busy selling out to the Russian oligarchs.
    • j2t2 wrote: Y’all f**cked it up [i.e. Obamacare] with malice and bad intentions.
    • j2t2 wrote: And you guys on the right support using babies for your own se*xual gratification, Weary.
    • j2t2 wrote: Wow the BS from our hypocritical fascist/conservatives/oligarchist/authoritarian/neo-Nazi friends here on WB is amazing.
    • j2t2 wrote: RE: shooting at synagogue in Pittsburgh on 27-OCT-2018: Now you act surprised and try to deflect the blame! Go f**k yourselves. Point the finger at yourselves for buying into the stupid propaganda you have bought into.
    • j2t2 wrote: Seems you guys [on Watchblog] just want to keep out the brown skinned families.
    • j2t2 wrote (addressing Royal Flush): Maybe it’s time to grow the f**k up and realize Trump’s campaign team are the bad guys.
    Based on j2t2’s own statements, j2t2 is fond of repeatedly calling others all sorts of names.
    HHMMmmmmm … does anyone else consider that as “name-calling”? Or “hypocritical” ? Or perhaps, unhinged?
    Somehow, j2t2 doesn’t seem to think so.
    In fact, j2t2 denies calling anyone Nazis or Fascists.
    I wonder what Dr. Justin Franks would say about the obvious hypocrisy of calling others names, while simultaneously claiming to have never called others names?
    After all, Ed O’hrealy seemed to put a lot of store in what Dr. Justin Frank’s crystal ball had to say.
    Unfortunately, simple, plain logic does not seem to work with some people, because they are so consumed and blinded by their deep hatred of white people, and others who disagree with them.
    For example, consider the following:
    • ohrealy calls white people “white a holes” (twice);
    • phx8 makes 13 derogatory statements about “white” people;
    • and j2t2 repeatedly calls others Nazis ! , Racists ! , Fascists ! , Brown Shirts ! , Beastialists ! , White Nationalists ! , Sexists ! , Misogynists ! , Xenophobes ! , Anti-Semites !, Authoritarians !, Right-Wing Conservatives ! , Bigots !, hypocrites, Repub F**ktards, F**king Fascists, as*hats, ignorant F**ks, or tells others F**k you, or Go F**k yourselves, or “And you guys on the right support using babies for your own s*xual gratification…”, etc., etc., etc.!, then denies having done so, and then also claims to be proud of all of his comments).
    Does any of that sound rational, or logical?
    Or, racist, hateful, and deeply disturbed?
    But, let the readers be the judge.

    At any rate, many thanks again to j2t2, phx8, and ohrealy for being the gifts that keep on giving.

    Wow diversions distractions and no response to the real issue, why am I not surprised? Hard work isn’t it twisting what I said so you can make up these diversions?

    So lets muddle our way through the diversions and distractions….oh hell… lets just get straight to the point. It is very simple guys-

    “Ask yourself is this the way we want our elections to be from here on out? Ask yourself if Trump is the standard for future presidents and is that what you want. Zero integrity. Zero honesty. Unethical, immoral, and no credibility is what we have as president is that acceptable to you guys? Even when it could be a Dem running things the next time around? Do you want foreign governments hacking emails, creating lies, providing propaganda as a norm?”

    Hypocrisy you ask? Well there are just so many things we could say here but lets just pick one from this thread- “The three stooges are as delusional as….” from D.. Why is it not one of you guys called him out for his name calling, which was, BTW, before my post that you guys consider to be name calling. Which of course leads us to hypocrisy example number two.

    Royal tells us “He compares that to my calling him; Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Communist. We are both intelligent enough to understand that I am referring to his “political positions”, which I can prove factually.”. What you consider to be name calling by me ” fascist/conservatives/oligarchist/authoritarian/neo-Nazi friends” is no different than Royals comment, other than it lists right wing ideologies.

    He may deceive you into thinking I am saying something I am not with this red herring- “I challenge our Pal j2t2 to present facts showing Conservatives to be hypocrites, fascist, oligarchic, authoritarian, or neo-Nazi.”. But if you have any reasoning abilities you would see that is not the case. I am, as I previously explained, simply grouping different right wing ideologies together. He would have you believe I am saying conservatives are neo_Nazis, conservatives are fascist, conservatives are oligarchic, and conservatives are authoritarians. Yet it is no different that what Royal is doing.

    Trump was in no position to do anything about Russians purchasing ads on Facebook during the 2016 campaign.

    No but he was in a position to denounce these outright lies. He was also in a position to distance himself from the Russians instead of working with them, yet he didn’t.

    Obama not only knew about it, he begged Putin to stop it. Obama was the President at the time, not Trump. Obama was capable of addressing the issue, but didn’t.

    He did what he could without appearing to be interfering in the election. The FBI started an investigation, what else could they do force Facebook to shutdown? Free speech rights would have been violated at the whim of the administrative branch!

    If anyone is to blame for Russians buying ads on Facebook, it was Obama.

    No Trump, had he even an ounce of integrity, morality, ethics, credibility, or truth, could have led by example and started to clean out the swamp by denouncing the Russian trolls. Instead he chose to buddy up with them.

    How was Trump supposed to stop illegal aliens from Russia coming into our country illegally. Obama’s policies toward illegal immigration opened the doors to Russians coming into this country to do their handy work.

    Wow is this your idea of the critical thinking skills I lack Weary? LoL! Of the Russians that Trumps campaign staff meant with, which ones were here illegally? Why would he direct his staff to meet with illegals and then use the information they provided for political gain?

    Are you suggesting the Russian troll farms are in this country and they couldn’t exploit Facebook and other social media from Russia? Really!

    J2, wouldn’t know morality, ethics, credibility, or truth if it smacked you upside your head. Your immature name calling and BULLS××T links that usually makes you look the fool. YEP, like d.a.n. says you and your 2 pals are the gift that keeps on giving.

    Yet you seem to be the one unable to answer simple questions KAP. Once again, Ask yourself is this the way we want our elections to be from here on out? Ask yourself if Trump is the standard for future presidents and is that what you want.

    As far as the gift that keeps on giving, thank you. I know these links are from the totally discredited “Trump fake news media” but they make the point, sorry if they offend you sensibilities. BTW, you guys want another right wing hypocritical moment? Name calling. Trump does it all the time, as do most right wing media outlets. As do you guys, remember what y’all have said about the Clinton’s and Obama’s and their supporters for years? It is only when your Ox gets gored that you whine about name calling.

    J2, in answer to your question, the way the economy has been under Trump so far and looking back to where it was under Obama, I hope to hell we have more people like Trump running for POTUS. I don’t really care about what he did in his private life or his bedroom escapes, his tax returns are no bodies business and if there was anything wrong with them the former administrations IRS department would have leaked it if there was. As far as the honesty and integrity BULLS××T you are trying to push we have 535 in Congress and 1 in the W. H. both past and present who are dishonest, unethical, immoral, and anything else you can claim and I would also add state and local governments in the mix. Elections today I am sorry to say go by who is the lessor of the 2 evils anymore. We proved that with the last election for POTUS J2.

    Let’s take just a few “hate-labels” used by the Left to describe Conservatives.

    HOMOPHOBIC: Defined as fear, hatred, or mistrust of lesbians and gay men. Totally false. No conservative I know fits that description. I denounce their sexual practices as abnormal and a sin as described in the bible.

    MISOGYNIST: Defined as hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women. Totally false. No conservative I know fits that description. I love women-hood. I am married to a woman. My mother was a woman. BILL CLINTON IS A WELL-KNOWN MISOGYNIST.

    XENOPHOBE: Defined as a fear or hatred of foreigners, people from a different culture. No conservative I know fits that description. My best friend was a foreigner. Some of my neighbors are from a different culture. During my time in the US Army I served with many men and women from different cultures. I traveled to many countries around the world and did not fear or hate the people from any of them.

    RACIST: Defined as believing that one race is superior to all other. No conservative I know fits that description. God created all men and women in his image. I find no difference between races as humans.

    FASCISM: Defined as totalitarianism in which the State is considered to be the highest value, not the individual. No conservative I know fits that description. Conservatives advocate small government with limited power.

    No. We should not have had a 2+ year investigation that found no crimes by Trump,…

    Are you sure you aren’t a Russian troll D.? You act like this list of yours contains some crimes yet the repubs investigated almost the entire time Obama was in office. Much more and much longer than the Mueller investigation. But you hypocrites seem to have forgotten how many false investigations the repubs conducted when they were in control. They turned up nothing but you guys continue to wave these lists around like they had some truth to them. They don’t.

    We also know the Russians interfered in the election. But you guys seem to think it is fine. Yet it is a crime. Mueller wasn’t able to prove Trump colluded with the Russians although they did work towards the same goal. The problem is they didn’t win based upon issues they won by deceiving the American people. But once again you seem fine with that. Yet you get upset because I have zero respect for you and your partisan lies. Unfortunately you and your fellow conservatives/populist nationalist/oligarchist/ authoritarians/neo-Nazis/Fascist have earned the disrespect.


    It seems the Mueller report does show Trump obstructed justice. Just because he hasn’t been charged yet doesn’t mean he is innocent. And certainly just because he tells you he is innocent, the man can move his mouth without lying, doesn’t mean he really is innocent.

    j2t2 confirms again that he is very proud of all of his (growing) “Words of Wisdom”

    Yes I am D.. I want the world to know which side I was on and these words are my speaking truth to power words.

    Royal you act like everyone on the right are conservatives, as if all conservatives are one in the same. But they are not. Especially after they helped elect the populist nationalist Trump to office. Trump followers include all those ideologies I mentioned and probably more. Your narrow focus on yourself as proof conservatives aren’t homophobic, racist, or whatever else is laughable. The actions of many conservatives speaks louder than your self indulgent blathering.

    KAP, The economy! Lol! You have diverted to Trump is good because he hasn’t wrecked the Obama economy yet! Oh and now you guys tell us who cares about what he did in the bedroom! where the f**k were you when the repubs were di**ing Clinton around hypocrite. Trump has lowered the standards of civility in this country. He campaigned on draining the swamp and instead he fills the administration with his kids who cut deals while traveling on the taxpayers dime..

    Andy McKean has the integrity to call out Trumps dishonesty. He has been a repub the past 40 years yet he can tell the truth about the repub party and Trump. Why can’t you guys? The repubs have moved to the far right according to McKean and he can’t support them at the national level. So he left the party to become a dem.

    Andy McKean is a state legislator in Iowa, almost a complete unknown, living in a very low-population area in Anamosa, Iowa (population of about 5,130).
    So, who cares IF Andy McKean wants to become a Democrap ? Andy McKean is in 1 of only 5 or 6 blue counties (of a total of 99 counties) in Iowa, which is probably his true motivation for switching parties. Good riddance. It proves nothing.

    Has anyone noticed Democratics are always claiming Russians interfered in our elections? It’s the constant talking point. It’s the go to remark they think is most valid. I have one question.

    Why don’t they constantly repeat, day after day, the Russians hacked the DNC’s email server? Hmmm?

    Actually D. I was pointing out how hypocritical you are. Not to mention how PC my hypocritical/conservatives/populist nationalist/oligarchist/ authoritarians/neo-Nazis/Fascist friends here on WB have become since Trump took office. I also talked about how you guys have lost so much credibility after becoming so receptive of Trumps dishonesty and lies.

    It seems you guys on the right no longer care about people s*x lives like you did when Clinton was in office, or perhaps you never did unless it could be used to get a political opponent. All this flip flopping on PC speech and such has caused you guys to lose integrity along with your ethics and morals. For political power you have sold your soul to Trump, unlike Romney, McKean and a few others who are conservatives and repubs yet can still see the damage Trump has done to the country.

    KAP I can read just fine, Trying to sell me on the 535 are as bad as Trump is laughable. How many of these past and present 535 have used stolen emails from Russians agents to win elections? Trying to save Trump from his actions by hiding him in with the rest of the politicians is only adding to the problem. Why do you want to lower the standards we hold our politicians, lower than they were before Trump?

    Why use the economy to defend Trump while blaming Obama for the debt. You do know Trump is piling on debt during relatively good economical times,. unlike Obama who had to deal with the financial meltdown at the beginning of his term. Trump is still charging wars and such on our grandkids credit cards so corporations and the top 1% can get a free ride on taxes.

The s*x life of Clinton wasn’t the problem as I said, it was the LIE. The s*x lives of presidents and the 535 in congress I could care less about.

    First of all the link is to a right wing propaganda outlet and one can see how you could become confused. Secondly, the “siren song” is Trumps nationalist populism.

    It seems our Conservative/Neo-Fascist/Neo-Nazi/Nationalist Populist/Authoritarian/Oligarchic friends here on WB have been moving farther and farther to the right over the years and now look at nationalist populist ideology as congruent with conservative ideology. Yet they get all butt hurt when someone like me uses Conservative/Neo-Fascist/Neo-Nazi/Nationalist Populist/Authoritarian/Oligarchic as a means to identify them. This link points that out.

    The distinctions between Progressives, Socialism and Communism aren’t as blurred as the distinctions between Conservationism, Neo-Fascism, Neo-Nazism,Authoritarianism and Oligarchic ideologies it seems as you guys use any means necessary to grab power.

    D.,What a weak argument regarding McKean. Why would someone have to be well known, live in a high population area to matter to you? He was the longest serving repub in Iowa! But that really isn’t the issue is it. The real issue is he has some integrity, you may remember integrity as you probably has some at some point in time. He has spoken truth to power.


    From the NPR link-
    “The longest-serving Republican in the Iowa Legislature announced he is switching to the Democratic Party, citing increasing discomfort with Republicans’ stance on many high-profile issues and his unwillingness to support President Trump in the 2020 election.”

    Weary being susceptible to talking points isn’t the issue. You provided a good example of what separates Trump from the 535 others KAP continues to obfuscate the issue with. Unless you know of other Repubs who used those stolen emails to win elections.

You know I told you that in the previous comment. Yet you are so surprised that it “salutes conservatism” at the expense of Trump! But there in lies the issue.

    You guys get all butt hurt when I write Conservative/Neo-Fascist/Neo-Nazi/Nationalist Populist/Authoritarian/Oligarchic friends here on WB as if conservatism isn’t any of these things. Yet some of you who claim to be conservatives and yet support Trump are at odds with real conservatives like those at the American Thinker.

    I guess with the information in this article I should modify my right wing ideologies to include Populist Socialism. I think while these writers may have been saluting conservatives they weren’t including you and other Trump supporters and…well…it …just … it may be more of a one finger salute you are getting.

    Here is the whole paragraph, as you seem to be unable to grasp what the writers are telling you. The words in bold will,hopefully, make it easier for you to identify the subject at hand.

    ” However, without the principles that define American conservatism, nationalist populism will take the United States down a path that has ruined so many other countries: the American “shining city upon a hill” will look more like the gaudy but rotted out wasteland of Atlantic City in terminal decline rather than the exceptional country of the last two centuries. American greatness lies in restoring her institutions and Founding principles, not in the siren song that has destroyed lives in Latin America and Europe.

    j2t2 is not only damaging the country with his nonsense, he is damaging WatchBlog. He is destroying the very thing that allows him to spout his hateful gibberish.

    He had ample opportunity to reconsider his approach.. and didn’t. He simply continued on with his hateful and damaging rhetoric that is destroying a very forgiving and inclusive platform. He also blames others as a matter of course without the slightest consideration of his own damaging and hateful path.

    It’s getting boring listening to his pointless and useless comments. I wouldn’t care if he posted his grandkid’s political position as long as it isn’t framed with his useless, bigoted, and hateful pap.

    That is an electoral college that’s been the mechanism used to elect the U.S. President since this constitution was ratified.

    The push back j2t2 is experiencing is just that, push back! j2t2 fails to realize “hope and change” doesn’t mean tear down everything this country has been for over 200 years and replace it piecemeal.

    Do Democratics say they would consider modifications to the welfare state and social safety net programs? No. Any proposal is met with attacks and slander. Any proposal that is not attributed to the Democratic party is met with hostility. Bi-partisanship is recognized by allowing Republicans to stand on the stage with Democratics who brag about how they “took him to school” and similar remarks.

    I’m looking forward to the time when the Democratic party is delegated to the corner stool to be seen and not heard, assigned the dirty work, frightened of what the media would think of them, and be easily cowed into agreeing with Republicans just to stay in office.

    That’s what democrats deserve, but that may not happen anytime soon (if ever), because:
    • (01) too many voters want free stuff, and democrats pander to that;
    • (02) democrats will do ANYTHING for more votes, as demonstrated H E R E by these 13 facts about the things that democrats do for more votes and power;
    • (03) the Democrats’ voting base is growing via massive illegal immigration (many millions per year), and Democrats have been pandering to illegal immigrants for many decades, and tens-to-hundreds of thousands are voting in our elections; A year-long investigation involving the Texas Department of Public Safety revealed that 95,000 non-citizens are registered to vote in Texas, and that 58,000 non-citizens voted in one or more elections in Texas between 1996 and 2018 (an average of 2,636 per year). (Sources: site2data.com/voting1.html ; www.star-telegram.com/news/state/texas/article225094315.html );
    • (04) This report verifies voter fraud by 81% of Democrats, and 19% by Republicans (from Voter Fraud database [from year 1979 to 2018]: heritage.org/voterfraud );
    • (05) 5.5 people (over 2,000 per year) are murdered every day by criminal non-citizens, but far too few seem to care (especially Congress); Source: site2data.com/homicides1.html ;
    • (06) A growing number of sanctuary cities and states pander to illegal immigrants, but now, they (being the hypocrites that they are) don’t want Trump to send all of the illegal immigrants to their sanctuary cities and states; but again, far too few seem to care (especially Congress); perhaps it is time again to vote promote voting-out ALL incumbents in Congress?
    • (07) Democrats now want to allow voting for murderers, child molesters, rapists, and other violent criminals. Democrats will do ANYTHING for more votes and power.
    • (08) There are too many people that want free stuff, more illegal immigration, more sanctuary cities and states, more illegal voting, and more of whatever it requires to get more votes and power.
    • (09) Unfortunately, the disintegration and degeneration of the U.S.A. may have already passed the point of no return; beyond the point of being salvaged, and the system may have to fail miserably (like Venezuela and other socialist, communist, and fascist countries have failed), before enough people (after many decades, if ever again) finally realize that socialism, free stuff for everyone, is doomed to failure. That is the final silver lining in what Democrats and similar ilk want; it is doomed to fail miserably.

    May I add Number Ten d.a.n.?

    (10) REPARATIONS FOR SLAVERY:

    The Democrat Party embraced slavery, and fought a Civil War to keep their slaves. The Democrat Party founded the KKK to keep slavery alive. Will only Democrats be forced to pay reparations?

    We know that black, women, and Hispanic voters are turning away from the Democrat Party and its hate-filled agenda disguised as benevolence. For decades the Dems have thrived politically by playing the race, gender, and union card.

    Black folks became convinced by Dems that they were not equal to whites and were therefor entitled to “special treatment” under the law. Such nonsense is demeaning and false. Blacks were herded into public housing and public assistance of all kinds as a supposed act of kindness. It doomed a generation of black citizens to “stinking thinking” about themselves.

    Today, thanks to Republican efforts led by President Trump, minority groups and women are employed in historic numbers. These citizens have found out that they are full citizens with job skills and are capable of earning a living. They are no longer beholding to some “party boss” telling them how to vote and how to live.

    Skilled workers are no longer at the mercy of a union boss or archaic union rules such as “last hired, first fired”. Workers who wish to work hard can rise above the old discarded “seniority” rules. Income can rise with ambition.

    Someone ought to ask these Democratics if the white slave’s families will receive reparations. Do you have to be related to an actual slave? Will a genetic test like E. Warren took be used to determine the “probability” there was a slave in their heritage? What proof will be required? Will exceptions be made for people who can’t prove their claim?

    Given the fact that everything remotely related to this issue will be thrown into the law when it gets written, questions like these are going to be extremely important.

    Perhaps I could add another despicable thing Democratics do for votes and power. They start wars.

    Democratics passed the 16th amendment and the Federal Reserve Act and 3 years later we have WWI. Then the Democratics have the Federal Reserve create a prolonged depression and WWII is needed to get out of it. Then the U.N. gets us into a war in Korea. The Democratics had to provide customers for the Military Industrial Complex so we get Viet Nam. It was all down hill from there, but the Democratics feel no pain for it.

    Hillbilly was itching for a war with Russia. There’s no end to it.

    Yeah, Democrats complained (and rightfully so) endlessly about the Iraq war (4,424 U.S. troops died), and the nation-building that followed (whihc makes George W. Bush the 2nd worst president; after LBJ being the worst in my lifetime).

    But Vietnam (58,209 U.S. troops died) was far worse (13.2 times more U.S. troops died). Because of that massive disaster, LBJ did not even think about running for a 2nd term.

    World War II was probably unavoidable, and just think IF Germany developed atomic weapons before the U.S.? And we were also attacked (at Pearl Harbor) by Japan on 7-DEC-1941.
    However, the incompetence of FDR’s administration left the U.S. Navy vulnerable at Pearl Harbor (especially, when several had been predicting the attack for months prior to the attack).
    And then, FDR imprisoned U.S. citizens (Japanese immigrants), but Democrats like to ignore that.

    And FDR confiscated everyone’s gold. What constitutional right did FDR have to confiscate everyone’s gold? People were forced to accept paper money. Sound awfully dictatorial doesn’t it?

    AOC seems to think the Republicans pushed for a 2-term limit for presidents, to keep FDR from getting re-elected. However, the amendment was not passed and ratified until years after FDR had died.

    Democrats have a lot to explain, and as hard as they try, it’s not easy to explain all of this despicable behavior.
    But that does not prevent them from trying, and twisting themselves into pretzels while trying. Especially the likes of j2t2, phx8, ohrealy, similar ilk, and their twisted and depraved viewpoints and re-writing of history.
    At any rate, many thanks to j2t2, phx8, and ohrealy for being the gifts that keep on giving, because they are doing wonders for influencing voters to their depraved way of thinking.

    I think Democratics needed the lengthy depression to solidify their socialist agenda and war was inevitable and needed to recover. We were, after all, the only surviving economy left. There was a world of customers waiting and continents full of destroyed societies to mold.

    Obama was on his way toward repeating FDR’s actions. First they institute the economic hardship for years while enacting the “necessary actions” needed to “provide for those less fortunate”. This would go on as long as was needed to entrench the new social programs and the force needed to eliminate the competition. Then, to jump start the stagnate economy a war with Russia would come in Hillbilly’s second term.

    But then, along came Trump. It’s no wonder Democratics are apoplectic.

    Think of the big picture. The Progressive Era started in the late 1880’s. The 1907 depression led to the Federal Reserve act and the 16th amendment, yet depressions continued! WWI and the Treaty of Versailles set the stage for WWII. Is it happenstance events unfolded as they did? I hardly think so.

    “Mr. One-World-Order” Woodrow Wilson used an executive order (DEC-1913) to create the federal reserve (which he later regretted).
    FDR used executive order 6102 (APR-1933) to confiscate people’s gold money, and then sold much of it.
    What do you think would happen today IF the federal government tried to confiscate gold money again?
    Under current federal law, gold bullion (including U.S. gold coins) can be confiscated by the federal government in times of national crisis (some collectibles and rare coins may be excluded).

    Who cares? I never heard of McKean until you mentioned him. He’s a nobody, and nobody cares what McKean does. Good riddance.

    Anyone who can understand the man has enough integrity that he will speak up and do something about the harmful behavior of Trump and his campaign. I realize that went right over your head as you were busy deflecting on McKean joining the Dems. But then if integrity doesn’t matter to you guys, and obviously it doesn’t, then good riddance is appropriate. You are probably better off sticking with all the false narratives about Dems you been lying to us about these past few months. They go well with the lack of integrity, honesty and credibility.

    But then, along came Trump. It’s no wonder Democratics are apoplectic.

    Weary are you quoting from the Onion? Trump increased the military budget on our grandkids credit cards! What kind of delusional thinking would lead anyone to believe Clinton was going to start a war with Russia and Trump saved us from it. I hate to burst this Big Lie you are trying to create but the fact is it has been repubs increasing the military budget over the years, feeding the MIC, not the Dems.

    Weary, if your theory had a speck of truth both the country and WB would have been gone long ago. I know you guys have memories shorter than your…er…ummm…. nose. Yet just a few years ago our Conservative/Neo-Fascist/Neo-Nazi/Nationalist Populist/Authoritarian/Oligarchic friends here on WB were spouting hateful lies, extremist propaganda and much worse than anything I have said. In fact most of them haven’t stopped despite Obama and Clinton being out of office for 3 years.

    Which leads me to my point Weary. When I first read this comment I thought you were referring to Trump and I thought you had woke up from the delusional trance you have been in since Trump was elected. But you didn’t mention his name once.

    He had ample opportunity to reconsider his approach.. and didn’t.

    Why should he reconsider anything Weary? Trump is a name calling liar who poses more of a threat to this country than Islamic terrorist, IMHO. It is his bread and butter. He’s hit 10k lies already. As president his lies have a profound effect on our democracy and our country. Yet you try to blame me!


    Yep while you guys spout nonsensical crap about Obama and Clinton, Trump has become the liar-in-chief. The one that can’t be trusted. You would think he would stop, but no, “He simply continued on with his hateful and damaging rhetoric that is destroying a very forgiving and inclusive platform. He also blames others as a matter of course without the slightest consideration of his own damaging and hateful path.”.

    But that isn’t enough he causes others to lie as we have seen here on WB, especially now that D. is back and continually repeating the Big Lies. But then as you say “It’s getting boring listening to his pointless and useless comments. I wouldn’t care if he posted his grandkid’s political position as long as it isn’t framed with his useless, bigoted, and hateful pap.”. But Trump just won’t stop, just like you guys won’t stop defending him. Yet I’m the problem!!Lol.

    There are lies, and then there are HUGE whoppers, and here are some whoppers by Obama that hurt a lot of people, and led to the deaths of several people:
    • Obamacare cost Americans billion$ in losses (possibly, worse).
    • Remember, Obama said: “[Health Insurance] Premiums will be lowered by $2500”;
    • Remember, Obama said: “If you like your doctor, you can keep him, PERIOD.”;
    • Remember, Obama said: “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it, PERIOD!”;
    • After 5 years, Obamacare has failed miserably on 4 important metrics (cost, coverage, competition, and choice): Source: www.heritage.org/health-care-reform/commentary/are-we-better-now-five-years-obamacare;
    • fewer health insurance providers, and none in some counties in some states; Source: time.com/money/4503325/obama-health-care-costs-obamacare/
    • Five years later, it is clear that Obamacare failed: Source: www.forbes.com/sites/sallypipes/2015/03/23/obamacare-at-five-years-old-a-disappointment/#25d817506ad2
    • Many people’s deductibles trippled, the max-out-of-pocket doubled, and the annual premiums trippled (but on the upside, they got coverage for things they don’t need).
    • In 2013, under the direction of Barack Obama, The Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 36,007 illegal immigrants who had been convicted of murder, s*xual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault, and drunk or drugged driving (source: cis.org/Report/ICE-Document-Details-36000-Criminal-Alien-Releases-2013 );
    • “I will close Gitmo.” (Guantanamo); [Almost! Obama released many from Gitmo, and they went on to commit more terrorist acts, killing and injuring more people (www.politifact.com/florida/statements/2017/jan/25/cory-gardner/how-many-released-guantanamo-bay-prisoners-commit-/); As of 23-JAN-2017, several Americans have been killed by the released terrorists; the federal government reported that 17.6% (122 individuals) had been “confirmed of re-engaging” and 12.4% (86 individuals) were suspected of re-engaging in terrorism].
    • “I am not spying on American citizens.”; [The NSA was spying on citizens!];
    • Obama’s administration illegally spied on Trump during 2016 election, and weaponized the FBI, DOJ, CIA for political purposes;
    • more Obama lies …

    I see William Barr testifying before Congress today, that the Democrats are still making asses of themselves, by blatantly calling William Barr a liar.

    IF the “Collusion Delusion and Obstruction conspiracy theorists” (i.e. Democrats) looked at the plummeting ratings for CNN and MSNBC, they’d realize that the majority of voters have moved on.
    But the likes of Jerry Nadler, Eric Swalwell, Dick Blumenthal, Ms. “shut up” Macie Hirono, “lying and leaking” Adam Schiff, “Pocahontas” Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker, Kamal Harris, Bernie Sanders, “Cryin’” Chuck Schumer, “Impeach that Mo********er” Rashida Tlaib, Jim Clyburn, “Crooked” Hillary Clinton, Pete Buttigieg, Seth Moulton, and similar ilk are still digging that hole (that they are standing in) ever deeper, as they try to grill William Barr.
    Good luck with that, eh? Especially since Mueller’s own report already ended without credible evidence to support more indictments, nor impeachment.

    So, Democrats, keep up the great work, because it is doing wonders (not to mention all of this by Democrats too) for your credibility and chances in 2020 !

    “The Surveillance” bill was controversial one, and many libertarian-minded Republicans who were against it, most notably Justin Amash from Michigan who attached an amendment to the bill that would force the FBI to get a warrant before searching the NSA collected surveillance.
    Amash got the commitment of dozens of Republicans, and enough House Democrats to pass it, but Nancy Pelosi(CA), Steny Hoyer(MD), Adam Schiff(CA), and Eric Swalwell(CA) voted against the Amash amendment and thus it was defeated. This was in 2017. Why would these Democrats do that, unless they wanted to collect surveillance on Trump, since they were leading the charge of the “Russia-gate” assault against Trump?

    Hopefully, there are enough people in Congress to figure out how the entire hoax got started, why and who signed off on certain FISA warrants, what grounds were used to justify the warrants, how Hillary was shielded from charges for serious violations by James Comeny, Loretta Lynch, etc., and how so many federal offices and agencies were weaponized by Democrats for political purposes.

    In Obama’s administration, Hillary Clinton broke the law (by sending classified information through personal email, and for destroying emails), and James Comey and Loretta Lynch (and others in the FBI and DOJ) protected Hillary from being prosecuted. Other people have spent time in prison for far less. Loretta Lynch subsequently met secretly in a private meeting Bill Clinton in Phoenix (29-JUN-2016) to signal Hillary’s exoneration decision by Comey. Hillary Clinton claimed that the private meeting happened by mere “chance”. Scum bags. It was later proven on 5-AUG-2017 that the meeting was “planned”. Lorreta Lynch used an alias email name of “Elizabeth Carlisle” in the letter to Bill Clinton about the meeting in Phoenix on 29-JUN-2016. The public exoneration statements for Hillary were created before the meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. Peter Strzok was involved in editing and softening the Comey exoneration draft statement, and texts between Strzok and Lisa Page indicate that Loretta Lynch knew in advance that Hillary would be exonerated by James Comey.

    What would be found in an investigation of the Clinton Foundation, and many people in the Obama administration (IRS, FBI, DOJ, VA, DNC, Lois Lerner, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, John Brennan, etc., etc., etc.) if they were investigated the same way Mueller investigated the current administration?

    I see William Barr wisely did not appear before Congress today, and that the Democrats are still making completes asses of themselves (which is par for the course for Democrats).
    j2t2’s comments that question the truth, credibility, and integrity of others are rich indeed (the epitome of hypocrisy), considering j2t2’s own “Words of Wisdom”, of which j2t2 claims to be “proud” of.
    Many Democrats are saying William Barr lied.
    What was the lie? After all, the entire Mueller report (with very little redaction) has been made public.
    At any rate, many thanks to Democrats, j2t2, and similar ilk for being the gift that keeps on giving, and making asses of themselves for all voters to see. Keep up the good work, and keep digging that hole (you’re standing in) ever deeper.

    I wonder why congress wanted their lawyers to question Barr. Was it because their lawyers aren’t accountable to the public?

    Probably, and the Democraps think it will intimidate Barr.
    But, Barr chose to ignore all of them the following day, which is funny as hell, since the whole hearing was mostly only Democraps making total asses of themselves (as usual). Mazie Hirono and Kamal Harris were the winners at making the biggest asses of themselves. Nancy Pelosi was a close 3rd. “self-proclaimed Vietnam Vet” Dick Blumenthal and Steve Cohen made an ass of themselves too. Jerry Nadler was his usual asinine self (as everyday).

    All of the Democrap’s nonsense might anger a lot of people, but they should be thanking those Democraps, because it is doing wonders for winning over voters to their depraved way of thinking, and it is doing wonders for CNN’s and MSNBC’s ratings (which had Rachael Madcow fighting back tears)!
