America Under Siege...

 

Quote of the day:

"Deep State is trying to take down Donald Trump. Our country is under attack from within." -- former Rep. Dennis Kucinich ( D-Ohio)

A little something you need to keep in mind in the weeks and months ahead as this 'destroy Trump feeding frenzy' unfolds.

Every made up attack the left and what passes as today's mainstream media launch against President Trump is an attack against all of us.

It's an attack against those of us who support and voted for him.

It's an attack against our very way of life.

The democrats keep throwing the term "Constitutional Crisis" out there.

We're on the verge of a Constitutional crisis, alright.

And we're watching it unfold right before our very eyes.

Now's the time for courage.

If this coup attempt by the democrats and the Trump hating media is successful we'll have lost this country forever.

There's no reason to take my word for it.

Check out today's video and let former left-wing Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) explain it in his own words.

Ohhh, boy. Dennis Kucinich? That's your go-to Democrat? He's a crazy person. His direct counterpart on the right would probably be Alan Keyes. Tip: You can pick out a crazy person by their use of the phrase "deep state."
Kala Allen Hisel 10 days ago

Well, crazy in your opinion, or not, Ash, Kucinich was elected to the Ohio Senate in 1994 and in 1996 to the U.S. House of Representatives where he was re-elected to another six terms.


He also was deemed the reputation as being the strongest liberal voice,  bringing Articles of Impeachment against President Bush and VP Cheney. 


So, Ash, regardless of your opinion, having Kucinich publicly decry,  "Deep State is trying to take down Donald Trump. Our country is under attack from within",  is categorically a highly significant statement.  One that, even you, Ash, should take heed. 

Ash McGonigal 10 days ago
Categorically it's exactly as significant a statement as when Kucinich said he saw a UFO at Shirley MacLaine's house.

Although it's true we're under attack. James Clapper -- infinitely more credible than Dennis Kucinich -- said as much. Our institutions are under attack from without by Russia and from within by Trump.
Kala Allen Hisel 10 days ago

Ash, did you have a point?  You stated, " Our institutions are under attack from without by Russia and from within by Trump"???? 


And, are you in a position to judge the thousands of people who have said they have seen UFO's? 


Oh, and site your source for this one, "Although it's true we're under attack. James Clapper -- infinitely more credible than Dennis Kucinich -- said as much".


It's hard to try and defend the indefensible, isn't it?

Kala Allen Hisel 10 days ago

Oh, Ash.  Every new president hires and fires those within the administration.  Clapper is using such to decry Trump is attacking within by hiring and firing.  Just because Clapper says so, doesn't make it so....or should I say former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. 


Sour grapes.  Lol

We've been under attack by Russia ever since there WAS a Russia - except for those few times when our agendas aligned.  But Trump is definitely not trying to take down this country.  Anyone can see that there are those who will not work with him regardless of personality that are trying to slow down or even stop  his agenda - which was voted for BTW by nearly every state, and not allow him to claim any victories or even admit that he has already made this country better than Obama in his first few months.  But I want to let people know that Trump has already gotten this economy on track after the 8 bleak years of Obama.  He added almost 300,000 new jobs, allowed for double the new housing starts, and illegal immigration decreased  by 67%.  
Ash McGonigal 10 days ago
So, the 237,000 and 238,000 new jobs created in February 2015 and February 2016 were bleak, but the 235,000 new jobs created in February 2017 mean we're back on track? I mean, putting aside the fact that Trump has accomplished next to nothing on the economic front and if he had we wouldn't see the results for another couple months at least, your argument that Trump is good for the economy doesn't stand up to simple arithmetic.
Mike Hasselkamp 10 days ago
Maybe it was the 15 Million added to the food stamp roll by Obama that threw me off.  Perhaps it was the less than 3% GDP that confused me.

Trump isn't responsible for the jobs increase. They are just the continuation of 78 consecutive months of Obama.
Tom Digger 9 days ago
Oh BS Trump has brought back ZERO jobs! The jobs report is simply the CONTINUATION of the 78 CONSECUTIVE months of OBAMA"S positive job increase. OBAMA is the one who brought back 11 million jobs!! Trump promised to bring back jobs that were shipped overseas.. That is another LIE. The jobs reports are almost identical to last years. They have NOTHING to do with Trump. As for the unemployment, he claimed they were all phony and bogus under Obama and now suddenly under him they are real?? He is a joke!

Coup attempt ? LMAO ! What in god's name are you reading ? So what do you think of Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy's take on this ? If you're unaware of just what he said, let me clue you in. 

"National Security
House majority leader to colleagues in 2016: ‘I think Putin pays’ Trump.

Some of the lawmakers laughed at McCarthy’s comment. Then McCarthy quickly added: “Swear to God.”

Ryan instructed his Republican lieutenants to keep the conversation private, saying: “No leaks. . . . This is how we know we’re a real family here.”

The remarks remained secret for nearly a year.

Source cited below. 


Yeah, family. Sort of like the Addams Family. 


Look - if you're going to run a blog, try to make it at least a little serious.

Kala Allen Hisel 10 days ago

David Smith, I have to assume you read this 'report' that discusses this 2016 'comment'.  However, then, after reading your link, I discover that the statement was made in jest and even the 'recording' of this comment contains laughter after the comment was made. 


The entire report is nothing but hearsay, projections of the writer, contradictions and arbitrary speculations, again, of the writer.  Oh, and the 'recording' the writer has sensationalized has never been released.  No ethical journalist, with any integrity would publish something that is based on nothing more than the writer's speculative opinion.  Especially when even the writer reports the recording had laughter after the comment was made and the person who made the comment explained it was said as a joke in 2016.


You'll have to do better than this if you want to be taken seriously, David Smith.  Lol



David Smith 10 days ago
Oh LOL Kala Allen Hisel. 

If it was a joke then why did Ryan make such a big deal about keeping it secret, all in the family? There has to be more to this then we know. Can't help but wonder what did they know about their gutless leader back then that required secrecy? 

Remains to be seen if the Mueller investigation will pursue this but they should if for no other reason then to pin down why it had to be kept secret if it was a joke. I have to believe that most people aren't buying into this line of BS that it was a joke.  
Kala Allen Hisel 10 days ago

I take it you didn't read the link Ash provided any more than Ash did. 


If you had, you, too, would have read where the writer himself states there is laughter after the statement was made.  And, it is worthy to note that only a 'snippet' of the entirety of the conversation was addressed.  This is probably why the 'recording' has not been made public.  The old trick of cherry-picking' a comment out of context and representing it falsely.


There is nothing factual whatsoever about this report and it is such an obvious 'overreach'  that anyone would ever take this seriously.  Good grief. 

Ash McGonigal 10 days ago
Read the transcript, Kala, and remember no one denies the veracity of it. The context is a conversation about how Russia is attacking Ukraine and the West.

McCarthy: "There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump."
Assembled Republicans: (laughter)
McCarthy: "Swear to God."
Ryan: This is off the record. No leaks!

Five points: 
1. Republicans deny that it was said seriously but do not deny that the recording exists. 
2. Conservative Evan McMullin says that it was not intended as a joke. 
3. Dana Rohrabacher was warned by the FBI in 2012 that Russia was trying to recruit him and has been unbelievably cozy with Moscow since then. 
4. The reason Kevin McCarthy isn't Speaker of the House right now is his tendency to blurt out true but politically inconvenient things. 
5. Coming from a family that's equal parts evangelical and Catholic, I've only ever heard the phrase "swear to God" used to emphasize the truth of a statement that otherwise sounds false or ridiculous.
Kala Allen Hisel 10 days ago

Oh Ash, give it a rest.  No one has heard the entirety of the tape, no one has heard the tape itself.  It hasn't been released to the public.  Only a transcript of the 'snippet' of an entire meeting has been offered. 


And, to be quite honest, so what?  Big deal, anyone can say anything but it doesn't make it true, Ash.  I know that might be hard for some to comprehend.  Stating an opinion is far from establishing truth and/or fact.  Lol

Ash McGonigal 10 days ago
People have definitely heard the tape, otherwise there would be no story. -You- haven't heard the tape. If you'd like to establish a counternarrative to the facts as I have presented them, be my guest, but what I have presented is entirely factual, aside perhaps from my interpretation of why Paul "Zombie-Eyed Granny Killer" Ryan became Speaker of the House -- which I argue is because McCarthy publicly acknowledged the politically inconvenient true purpose of politicizing the Benghazi attacks: to drive down Hillary Clinton's poll numbers.

What concerns me is that Progressive Liberals want to win above all else, no matter what.  It doesn't matter what issues are or how a stronger America might be achieved.  They are so far removed from what the Democratic Party was even 20 years ago that it isn't funny at all.  Gone are the days of debate over tax codes and what is best for the economy.  In its place are people who want Trump gone because they don't like him personally.  People who want to work with a President regardless of the agenda are few and far between.   Progressive Liberals are taking out the country.  Soros' open border policy and political correctness, especially regarding the family, abortion, and religion are more important than the constitution.  The Liberal violence, hate, and intolerance should scare the heck out of true Americans.  And the resistance movement, while totally insane, is effective.  And yes, there is indeed a Deep State - those working behind the scenes to take out the President.  We see that with the leaks and surveillance and unmasking. The heck with the country.  They want to win, and they have been in complete shock and denial ever since their candidate lost.

I cannot fail to acknowledge the song dedicated to me. I am truly touched. No really.


So we're still playing the "Oakland as South Central" theme. A neighborhood brimming with angry young men just chomping at the bit to take on those filthy rich "west-siders".Those mansions surrounding the old Boswell speak of bygone days.... 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous'. 

 

"His "GPA he won't destroy". Soooo,we're back to GPA's. That is like, you know, so rad dude ! Totally gnarly forsure ! Yeah, soooo well, high school. That was long ago big guy. And let's not forget there are GPA's and there are GPA's. I'm sure earning a 4.0 in political science or history is just a little bit easier than biochemistry.  

 

Yes, I took a look at your facebook pics. You requested I do so. Nice lady, and as I recall, I said as much. But she's'there', and you're 'here'. Automatic disqualifier.   

 

That doesn't mean I didn't check the other pics.All I can say is metabolic syndrome is bad news.     

 

If I had to choose a song befitting Trump and his republican enablers, it would make use of the old Nazi anthem, the Horst Wessel lied. If you can imagine the tune, the opening line would go like this"Trump covered up, he's comfy with the Russians.....Comey, he asked,please stop the investigation...". Etc.

 

But no such luck. Now the repubs are running scared. Bigly. How deep does the rot go ? I know, you didn't vote for the orange bonobo. But you didn't vote against him in any meaningful way either didya ? But you sure did get back at the harridan didn't ya ?

 

So we've got a fine mess here huh ? Perhaps that should be the first line of your next Grammy winning song.

He's just in a "State of the Blues" Kala!  David is like the rest of the Democratic party.  They have no message for the voters they have lost, they have gone against what the true Democratic party has stood for in the past, the party is being taken over by a bunch of one issue hate groups that forgot or never even heard of what John Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country."  Everyone is now in it for themselves!  They all have to have a symbol to hate and blame, so that has become the President, Donald Trump! 

  It is really a shame, isn't it?

Kala Allen Hisel 10 days ago
Well, I agree he's in some kind of a state.  It is tragic what the Democrats are doing to their party and to this nation.  The Democratic party no longer has a platform other than to destroy the Presidency using hatred, vilification, obstruction, lies and innuendo.

Now that's gratitude for you, Boz-style!!!  Feel free to ad lib on our little Grammy-sweeper.  I know, "destroy" was lame - but I had to have something to go with "Troy" and "boy."  I'm sure you'll understand. 

Do you know why I like to do the east side - west side thing?  Come on Boz, you're a shrink, this should be a snap.  I must be a wolf to your shepherd, 'cause I LOVE to get your goat!! 

And Boz, we can say we're anything and everything on the net, can't we?  Except for such as Kevin and myself.  We prove what we say we are.  And let's keep it real, okay.  Amherst, NCO combat vet, ex-pat; heh-heh, well my stepdaughter knew what she was talking about when she called me "the man from casting central."  Oh believe me, Boz, she didn't mean it as a compliment.

So you see I've gained weight the last few years.  Shrewd observation.  And the fact that I just put all those photos out there should give a clever behavioralist such as yourself a clue as to how much I value critical opinions, eh? 

And I like that "here" - "there" dichotomy you mentioned.  So much I'll give you credit for it up front.  Like concerning Kansas polly-ticks, we're "here" and you're "there."  I LIKE IT!!!  And who says I can't change my opinions after talking to someone who doesn't agree??!!

A bit of info for you, Boz.  I'm taking AMTRAK back into Blue territory.  I know you'd like to make me use my passport to do so, but I'll try to be stealthy. (Cue in "Night Train to Munich" by Al Stewart here).  Ah well, the main fuzz I'll have to elude are the Thought Police who infest Blue State college towns.

In parting, Boz, concerning voting against someone in a "meaningful" way, I dunno.  I DID caucus for Kasich, in a state that you mock, but turned down both Trump and the Harridan by cruel margins.  So to turn Clinton on ya, I guess it all depends on what the definition of "meaningful" is.

NOBODY knows that the Russia story is a lie!! NOBODY.. The idea that we have at least SEVEN people in Trump's campaign who had contact with Russia  with EIGHTEEN VERIFIABLE CONTACTS and Trump and the TRUMPBOTS are claiming it is a lie is so LAUGHABLE! Manafort, Page and Flynn ALL were paid foreign agents. Flynn is asking for IMMUNITY for a reason! SOMEBODY is going to be indicted!!  Was there collusion or a deal and did Trump know about it. If he did, will it bring him down.  I certainly hope it DOES.. Our nation needs to get rid of this CORRUPT NARCISSISTIC MAN BABY! But, I hope he is exposed as the criminal he is and resigns. But, anyone who claims that there is an FBI investigation, TWO Congressional investigations and a Special Prosecutor for a 'fake'  story REALLY IS LIVING IN SOME ALTERNATE UNIVERSE!!
Mike Hasselkamp 10 days ago
Everyone knows it Tom.  But when it is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, will you finally admit it?  Manafort, Page, and Flynn all met with Russia.  It was part of their job.  I'd be upset if they DIDN'T.  No collusion.  Not then, not ever.  However, the selection of a special prosecutor might very well have another effect - the indictment of Hillary.  Comey was in her corner, but this guy is pretty stand-up by all accounts.

We have grown in the District alone, approx. 125,000 since 2000, or about the population of Topeka.The D.C. region has grown about 1.5 million bringing it to just over 6 million. D.C., Seattle, SF, NYC, LA, San Diego, Boston, Austin and even Dallas and Houston are booming and they are ALL run by Democrats. This is what's causing that smell we have around here ---------

Here are the facts Miss Kitty - and the link so you can read all by yourself - 

http://dcist.com/2017/04/cause_im_the_taxman_yeah.php

D.C. Pays Way More Than Any State Per Capita In Federal Taxes

Residents in the District pay more federal taxes than any state in the country, and it's not even close.

Last year, the per capita tax bill for D.C. was $37,000, more than double the next jurisdiction—Delaware, where residents paid an average of $16,000 in federal income, payroll, and estate taxes. On the low end, nearby West Virginia paid $3,600 in federal taxes per person.


The Associated Press calculated these figures using population data from the Census and IRS tax data.


In this case, though, money isn't power. D.C. isn't a state and doesn't have a say on Capitol Hill, with neither a full voting member in the House or the Senate."


Here is another source. As you can see by the chart, the District of Columbia pays MORE in federal taxes than Kansas. Yes more. Keep in mind, the District is essentially a city. Kansas is a state. We are nearing the 700,000 in the district and Kansas is nearing 3 million. No, this does not include the 5.5 million who live in the D.C. suburbs, this is just DC. Read it and weep. And while you're at it.....  


Get your facts straight.

Here is an interesting study as to why Trump supporters believe the 'fake news' and see things differently than others. The question I've asked many times is how can the entire world be wrong, but Trump be right? How can Trump continually make excuses as to why things happen, but it is never his fault? Why is it acceptable to believe the worst of someone because Trump chooses to blame them for his mistakes? Certainly there comes that time when you have to realize that moment of truth in the lies. Doesn't there?

Good Afternoon Ms. Seymour,

I posted this reply to you on Mr. Masters' blog but it also is within blog topic here on Mr. McGinty's blog.... 

"Good Afternoon Ms. Seymour,
Have you ever considered that if it weren't for the biased media, Liberal Left and the Anti Trump people pushing hearsay and other nonsense that there wouldn't be a need for President Trump to be on the defensive.... get real... 

I'm really down on the biased media, fed up with the Liberal Left and the Anti Trump people....  

Have you seen the Washington Times?  There's an article where Nancy Pelosi herself is cautioning the Democrats .... her quote and the weblink to the Washington Times:

"“In other words, again, if you are talking about impeachment, you are talking about what are the facts. Not that I don’t like him and I don’t like his hair and — what are the facts?” she said. “What are the facts that you would make a case on? What are the rules that he may have violated? If you don’t have that case you are just participating in more hearsay.”"

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/may/16/nancy-pelosi-warns-democrats-pushing-impeachment-t/

Pay very close attention to the last sentence.... "If you don't have that case you are just participating in more hearsay." 

How do you feel about the Democrats participating in hearsay in their attempts to derail President Trump?

Don't know about you, but those elected Democratic officials were elected to represent the people who voted for them..... not to self indulge themselves in their temper tantrum that Hillary didn't get in office... bottom line that is why they hate Donald Trump is because he defeated Hillary Clinton."
McKenna Seymour 9 days ago
I don't believe I mentioned the word impeachment in my post. And your argument about Trump goes both ways. You said "Have you ever considered that if it weren't for the biased media, Liberal Left and the Anti Trump people pushing hearsay and other nonsense that there wouldn't be a need for President Trump to be on the defensive.... get real... "

I never said Trump was on the defensive, I said he lied. Whether you want to call it lying, forgetting, changing your mind, whatever they come up with to name it, he is not an honest person. I believe I said that if he would learn to spew the truth as he does lie, maybe he would not have some of the problems he has now, especially with the Trump haters and the media.

Well, McKenna, an interesting read, you say?  Well, it was entertaining, but interesting itwas not.

Now, let's see. A professor of anthropology at theUniversity of California decided to perform a study to prove conservatives havemore of a tendency to be suckers for 'fake news' than do liberals.  And all he did was ask questions that hedeemed would reveal his hypothesis.

 He chose thequestions he felt would be revealing and then chose how the responses to thosequestions would be interpreted.  Thatbecomes the first problem.  A legitimatestudy does not allow for any type of bias and questions must be construed in amanner that does not lead to a desired response in order to reach thehypothesis wanted. 

So, this anthropologist stated he asked 16 questions suchas:

‘Exercising on an empty stomach burns more calories’ whileothers focused on risks, such as, ‘terrorist attacks in the U.S. have increasedsince Sept 11, 2001’.

 ‘society works betterwhen people live according to traditional values’.

‘whether they “agree” with topics like school prayer, and ofcourse, whether they actually identify as a Republican or Democrat.’

And, then, the answers were analyzed and assessed,subjectively, to find correlations. Legitimate studies do not allow for subjectivity as personalinterpretations, beliefs, etc., influence the results.  This study is not a legitimate one. 

It seems to prove more that this professor is obviously aliberal and his study was to draw the conclusion he desired.

Kala, forgive me for butting in, but we need help swinging SB126., a bill to establish an oversight task force for our foster care system. There is also a slot open for a licensed social worker, if you're interested in appointment, and the bill gets passed, but if you get time, contact Ron Ryckman, the House Speaker at 785 296-2302 and tell him to let SB126 get a hearing on the House floor when it gets out of conference.

That interpretation could make any study useless. All those participating were asked the same questions. Not sure how you see that as biased. 

And why on Earth would someone post this about a hearing for foster care? Aren't there better ways to reach you? Wow.

McKenna, I take it you aren't very familiar with research studies; how to conduct research studies without bias, how to select variables, how to choose your target groups with validity, the importance of question development, the importance of assuring responses are void of bias and personal interpretation, the manner in which correlates are statistically and analytically formulated, etc. 


Before you believe the validity of any type of research study, you need to be able to understand all the facets of research and how those facets impact the results.  Otherwise, one can easily believe any results of any research study.  Good grief.

Wow, McKenna, the message was not directed to you or at you.  Therefore, I am curious why Keri's message to me somehow warranted a reaction from you.  And, no, Keri would not have another way to contact me.  How about you, McKenna, would anyone on this blog know how to contact you in another way? 


Why on Earth would anyone take a personal offense about such a minor and petty thing that did not have anything whatsoever to do with them in the first place?  Chill out.

No, no and no. Don't sidestep the issues here minimizing what appears to be a well written researched article, but pointing to the anthropologist. There were several qualified researchers cited as well. Three had published in a Univ. of Nebraska faculty publication. Two researchers were from Neb. one from Rice. Both institutions are highly regarded, Rice especially so.   http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1069&context=poliscifacpub

You seem to be struggling to question the validity and reliability of the research noted in this article. You dispute the findings with no real facts. If you are going make a valid argument, you need to be very specific and point out flaws in methodology. A very basic one for instance, sampling flaws. A sample is an approximation of the population, a point estimate like....Take measurements of a sample group of American Indians. You conclude from that samle that  ' the average height of American Indians is 5'8" '.  Then you can start to test your hypothesis. Exactly what flaw do you detect in the Atlantic article ?    

The article Kala, was published in The Atlantic. The Atlantic is not only one of the oldest ( 1850's) American journals, it is certainly one of the most respected. The senior editor which I suspect you didn't know is none other than republican pundit David Frum. 

I have argued that the amount of research on the role of the amygdala (where emotions like fear & anxiety arise )is extensive and shows hyperactivity in conservatives significantly greater than in liberals. Whether or not the etiology is genetic or epigenetic we don't know. Yet. Nonetheless, the conclusions certainly conform with the findings cited in the Atlantic article. Fake news among other things is intended to titillate. And no, that is not a dirty word. Nothing like hearing high school grads like Limbaugh bark " 5 million !!! Illegals have entered the U.S. and HALF OF THEM ARE CANNIBALS ! " Please.....    

 Yet. McKenna has cited a very solid source and you dismiss it for reasons unknown to anybody reading your comments. 
And by he way, I took a course in biometry which graduate students in physical anthropology were required to take. It was one of the most difficult classes I ever experienced.  If you think anthropologist are a bunch of idiots majoring in something like basket weaving you're wrong. But I will repeat on last time.... if you are going to slam someone's academic product, you had better know what you're talking about.

In fact, I continue to say that most of you have forgotten more than DJ Trump will ever know, yet, many here keep praising DJ Trump as if he were a knowledgeable human being while the rest of the World considers him:   “People are less worried than they were six weeks ago, less afraid,” said one German government official to Glasser. “Now they see the clownish nature.”

“The president of the United States has a 12-second attention span,” said NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg to a “former senior official” after an April meeting with Trump in the Oval Office.

In the Obama days our Republican friends boasted that FOX had the highest ratings of political ping-pong media.  Now they're back to the old song-and-dance of "liberal media" taking down Trump. Right-wing media is huge and now sitting in the White House. 

The real siege is corporate takeover of our politics with unlimited dark money.  It has happened. 

As for Trump, he symbolizes the height of corruption kind of rolled up into one egomaniac.  He says one thing to McGinty's crowd but does just the opposite.

As for his ties to Putin, they are very real and being expertly documented in the Netherlands where there were liaisons.  Trump has been in bed with Putin and the other Russian oligarchs as well as shadowy Mafia figures as they launder money across the world.  It's all coming out.

Or, as Jesus put it, "That which is done in secret will be shouted from the housetops."

David Smith 7 days ago

Do you read or view ANY legitimate media sources AT ALL ? He didn't bow ? The Saudis played him like a fiddle. Knowing how important it is to feed the orange one's ego, they gave him a big shiny medal. Frankly, it looked like something out of a happy meal from McDonald's to me, but Trump was obviously moved. But the bowing was just the start. Then, he did the most comical thing possible. He followed his bowing with a curtsy. Yes, a curtsy.Consider the video. Next time, turn off fox and get with the program.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5DZ2VKaEjc     

 

Even Steve Schmidt, republican strategist weighed in. The point of his comment is to point out the hypocrisy of the republicans. Obama"bowed". But somehow Trump didn't. It looked to me like he bent over to accept the medal, but then did a little curtsy since well.... King Salman is after all a king. Trump's vanity was fed and he was overwhelmed. Oh, and he did a great job reading his .teleprompter. Schmidt weighs in "

 

@SteveSchmidtSES, on Trump’s awkward body movements when he accepted a medal from Saudi Arabia’s King Salman. Trump bent over to receive the honor, and his little dip when he came up was awkward enough that some thought it was a curtsy. Greeting foreign dignitaries is a situation fraught with opportunities for misunderstanding. In 2012, Trump criticized then-President Barack Obama on Twitter for having bowed in a meeting withthen-King Abdullah. Conservative media, such as Fox News and the Drudge Report, didn’t run the photos of Trump and presented the story as if he did notbow/bend over/curtsy — whatever it was.

Barack Obama like Trump is also over 6' tall. Nonetheless Kitty, he took more than a little heat from the low information media for "bowing" for almost anything. E.G. it is standard protocol to bow to the flag of a foreign country flag when part of an honor guard. But of course Alex Jones frothed at the mouth when Barack Obama followed that protocol.

Not a half bad question. Because Trump in the opinion of many is SO incompetent that he is serving as a sort of buffer between a congress that wants to strip entitlements ( many of them serve as a lifeline for an increasingly poor Kansas ), and bring back trickle down economics for the entire country. The latter should terrify Kansans even more because you've seen how that has played out for the last four years now haven't you ? The public is so embarrassed. angry, confused by the orange clown in the White House that they  (democrats) see Trump as the gift that just keeps giving.

A very interesting and informative interview last night of Alan Dershowitz, famed attorney and self-proclaimed Hillary supporter,  by Tucker Carlson.


 http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/05/19/alan-dershowitz-questions-russia-special-counsel-says-theres-no-crime 


Although many on the left have expressed their approval of Robert Mueller being appointed as special counsel to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Alan Dershowitz thinks Mueller could actually vindicate President Donald Trump, rather than bring about his downfall.

On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Dershowitz, a legal scholar and Harvard University Law School professor, said he doesn't see a crime that necessitated the appointment of a special counsel.

He explained that it would not be criminal, even if it happened,for the Trump campaign to have collaborated with the Russians in an effort toget their candidate elected.

"That's political wrongdoing, but it's just not a crime," Dershowitz said. "Nobody can point me to a statute that would be violated. And a prosecutor is only allowed to look for evidence of a federal crime."

Gary Sandell 9 days ago

He said that he predicts the end result will be Mueller announcing no evidence of a crime, which would obviously be beneficial to Trump.

Dershowitz said the worst-case scenario for the White House would be that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn gets indicted, but even if that were to happen, Trump could pardon him.

"It's going to be done in secret, behind closed doors, and all we get in the end is no indictment or a lower-level former official gets indicted," Dershowitz said. "And I think in the end that helps the Trump administration, not hurts them."

The other day I posted this clip from the Washington Times....

"Have you seen the Washington Times?  There's an article where Nancy Pelosi herself is cautioning the Democrats .... her quote and the weblink to the Washington Times:

"“In other words, again, if you are talking about impeachment, you are talking about what are the facts. Not that I don’t like him and I don’t like his hair and — what are the facts?” she said. “What are the facts that you would make a case on? What are the rules that he may have violated? If you don’t have that case you are just participating in more hearsay.”"

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/may/16/nancy-pelosi-warns-democrats-pushing-impeachment-t/

Pay very close attention to the last sentence.... "If you don't have that case you are just participating in more hearsay." "


For the Anti Trump people :
Did you catch that last part of Nancy Pelosi's statement?  "....participating in more hearsay." ? Why do you not reply to this public truth out of Nancy Pelosi that the Democrats have been participating in hearsay?????

Hearsay = Lies.....
Democrats = Hearsay = Lies
Democrats Lie!

Nancy Pelosi's statement is a public admission that the Democrats have been deliberately misleading their supporters -

The Democrats devoured and deliberately derailed Bernie Sanders' campaign in favor of Hillary Clinton, so it is no surprise that they are trying every dishonest trick in the book to devour and derail President Trump.

The purpose of elections is to place people in office to work on pertinent things to help all Americans....not just Democrats and not just Republicans....  Hillary Clinton lost - Donald Trump won....

If anyone needs to be impeached it is the Democratic elected officials who have participated in hearsay in their attempt to derail President Trump.

But here's the real kicker....Hillary Clinton needs to point the finger of blame 100% on herself for her losing her campaign race to the White House.  Enough of the blame game – boo hooing that James Comey and Wikileaks were to blame…. Hillary needs to own up to the proven fact that she lied and is corrupt and that’s why she lost to President Trump. Hillary doomed herself by her own actions – that’s the real bottom line reason she lost to Donald Trump.

From the great Jack Dunphy writing for PJ Media. Here's how you should approach every story you read in a newspaper these days.

"The story you are about to read was written and edited by people who a) voted for Hillary Clinton, b) think Donald Trump is a menace, and c) are appalled that 63 million of their fellow citizens – all those ignorant rustics out there in the howling wilderness between Beverly Hills and the Hudson River – could have so abased themselves as to choose Mr. Trump over Mrs. Clinton. Furthermore, these same reporters and editors go about their daily lives with no contact with anyone who might have a different opinion, and if they were to encounter one by accident they would run shrieking from the room. Every one of these people hope to be their own era’s Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein and be remembered as the journalist who saved America and the world from Donald Trump. And finally, these aspiring Woodwards and Bernsteins have ready access to what seems to be an endless supply of aspiring Deep Throats, anonymous “administration sources” equally desirous of seeing President Trump impeached, jailed, or otherwise rendered impotent."
